Embracing The Gift
The Holy Days are the Stepping stones to Heaven...
In understanding their meaning shall you
Progress quickly along the path I have laid...
And when I have fulfilled them to the last
The journey shall be complete,
For those who have
Accepted and received...
Says The Lord YahuShua.
The Feasts of The Lord
In these Seven is wisdom and understanding, the very mind of God. For the Holy Days are revelation, revealing hidden things kept secret since the world began... Signposts of things to come, a foretaste of the Kingdom, a glimpse into the Glory of God even as the Scriptures, unfolding and coming to light as the will of God is manifest, says The Lord.
Behold, four are fulfilled:
Sin and death overcome,
The Spirit given...
Three are coming quickly:
Sin destroyed, evil bound,
My seat taken, Judgment...
A new day, even one thousand years...
Then a short season,
An everlasting day in The Lord!
The Feasts of The Lord
2/10/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For Timothy and The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Therefore regarding the feasts of The Lord, this is what The Lord your God says to those who believe, those who have ears to hear, eyes to see, and a heart which longs to know Me as I truly am: Three are fulfilled, one is, and three are to come, coming quickly. Of the three fulfilled, you shall remember and honor them according to how I command you. The dates and times, the new moons and seasons, are not the focus... YahuShua is the focus. For the significance of these Holy Days is found in their meaning and revealed by their order, even as all find their fulfillment in Mashiach and their completion in the coming of The Lord.
Therefore you shall set yourselves apart from them. And because of My voice, you shall remain separate and do all I command you. I am The Lord. For in the world, many will celebrate the Passover at the end of March; yet you will honor the Passover beginning Tuesday at twilight of the week prior, and you will remember. You will walk in the footsteps of The Messiah’s passion, gathering together to bless His name according to each day He fulfilled in His glory, My glory. Four holy convocations, plus one, shall be kept.
Thus as The Messiah kept the Passover with His disciples,
So shall you honor The Passover in like manner...
As He was afflicted, so shall you afflict your souls...
As He slept in the tomb, so shall you mourn...
And as He rose from the grave, so shall you rejoice and sing praises;
Behold, you shall complete the week with joy and feasting!...
Then later shall you meet, once again,
To remember the Bridegroom being taken from you,
And to rejoice in the Blessed Hope of His soon return!
In this way will you begin to partake of the hidden manna, and your hearts shall be glad, causing you to see with greater eyes; your understanding of the Glory brightening, as you enter into a more profound knowledge of the salvation of God, which is accomplished and fulfilled in The Son of Man... For the Holy Days are revelation, revealing hidden things kept secret since the world began, signposts of things to come, a foretaste of the Kingdom, a glimpse into the Glory of God, even as the Scriptures, unfolding and coming to light as the will of God is manifest.
And though you are counted as last partakers by the Jews, and scorned by those who dwell in the churches of men, I tell you, you shall be first partakers! For I have set you up as an example, and by these things shall you bear witness of My goings out and comings in. For I am The Lord, and I shall surely follow the counsel of My own will. For I do not receive counsel from men, nor shall I follow the line which they have stretched out for Me, that I might adhere to their rules and meet their expectations. Rather I do that which is right and good in My own eyes, which bears fruit in accordance with the good pleasure of My will... Or have you never read this Scripture, “God is in Heaven; and He does whatsoever is pleasing to Him”?
Therefore, those who diligently seek to know The Father must abide in The Son and obey His voice, becoming a living testament to those without knowledge, even as an ensign to all nations... Soon taken up, first partakers of The Glory. Thus in the same way, those who truly accept and believe My words and embrace My Letters shall also be first partakers of the spring feasts... Supping from the table of knowledge, drinking from the fountain of understanding, as they receive joy anew in The Beloved. For many who are counted as first shall be last, and many who are counted as last will be first. For those mocked and persecuted, for My name’s sake, must be first; even as those who are mocked and persecuted, because of this Word, shall be first also. The mouth of The Living God has spoken.
Yet only those who have truly received
Shall be first partakers of The Glory...
They shall be the first to sit at My table before the time,
Supping from the plate of My knowledge,
Drinking from the cup of My understanding;
For there I am in the midst of them...
Until the day comes when My beloved rest fully
In My bosom, in the house of The Lord...
For the names of all My elect were written
In the Book of Life from the very foundation of the world,
Of which The Lamb was also slain...
I am The Lord."

Listen and have understanding, Timothy, for thus says The Lord your Redeemer: Only those who truly believe shall keep the Passover. It shall be to them as a memorial, a time of reflection, the giving of thanks.
Therefore, My beloved ones, put your love for Me on open display!

From the Letter:
3/7/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear (Regarding the preparation of unleavened bread during The Feast of Unleavened Bread)
Thus says The Lord to His servants: You shall partake only of that which is molded by the hands of a believing bride in each household, doing so with love and great joy in remembrance of Me. For I am He who molded you, and yet molds you still, even as I had unleavened you from the beginning by My sacrifice, remembering you during My passion...Therefore, take and eat of that which I have provided. Do not go round about, nor seek that which is created by the hands of men; accept no replacements. Rather trust in My ways and see with greater eyes, rejoicing in every act of devotion, for I AM HE. Yet for those of you who have no wife, or dwell with a spouse who remains unwilling, you shall prepare the bread with your own hands, and be set apart for these seven days of the feast.
And concerning spouses who remain rebellious, I say this: Ask of them nothing, nor partake of anything they offer during My Holy Days. For they have shown themselves to be unworthy of Me, says The Lord. For though you are two of one flesh by marriage, a division in spirit has occurred. And as it is written, “Whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven.” Thus in the same way, when a division occurs on Earth because of Me, so also is there a division in Heaven, says The Lord.
For My bride cleaves to Me, she honors Me
And walks in My ways, and remains faithful...
Yet any who claim to be My bride, who knowingly
Commit adultery with the pagan and the heathen,
While cleaving to the ways of the world
Or the churches, do dishonor Me...
Thus between us a great gulf has formed...
And so shall it remain, until the day comes
And is fulfilled, when she cries out, saying,
“Blessed is He who comes in The Name of The Lord!”

5/5/10 From YahuShua HaMashiach, He Who Is Called Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to a Brother in Christ and Timothy, For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Thus says The Lord, concerning the day when I ascended to The Father in glory, of which I have now commanded you to remember and keep holy to The Lord, rejoicing in the anticipation of My coming, The Blessed Hope: This is a time of great rejoicing, for I am coming quickly! Therefore come and feast at the table of The Lord, and rejoice! Give thanks, sing praises, and be filled with the joy of The Lord! Sing for Me, beloved! Sing! Yea, ascend the hill of The Lord, with pure hearts and clean hands, offering up praises to He who is true! For now is the time for great glory to be revealed, in the heavens above and upon the earth beneath!... The mighty and awesome power of The Lord!"
Let the Redeemed of The Lord Come Running
Remembering the Acsention, Looking to the Blessed Hope
That which was bitter shall be made sweet; and that which brought tears of sadness shall be turned to great rejoicing. For indeed The Bridegroom was taken from them, and has been a long time in coming. Yet those who have waited with all eagerness shall have their hope realized, and those who watched with steadfast trust shall not be put to shame; neither shall those who have fallen asleep be disappointed.
For the Bride shall have her heart’s desire,
And My prophets their due reward...
For all those who belong to Me have tasted,
And behold, My prophets have surely seen...
Says The Lord.
The Salvation Day
The Salvation Day of Men is four-fold...
It was ordained before
The foundation of the world;
Fulfilled at My birth;
Finished at My death on the cross;
And solidified eternally
Upon My resurrection...
Says The Lord YahuShua.
5/19/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Question asked by Timothy, for a sister in Christ: Lord, is this really the last Pentecost?
[The Lord answered] Beloved, I have poured out My spirit on all flesh, even as I was poured out for you from the beginning, yet no one comes to drink, not one is willing to receive of Me as I truly am. I have brought forth the rains in their due season, both the former and the latter, and still the crop wanes and bears only bitter fruit. Behold, the voice of The Lord your God has spoken, yet few have ears to hear, few are willing to open their heart and truly listen. I tell you the truth, before Me stands a very proud people, multitudes of foolish children who can not discern their right hand from their left... Their knowledge is corrupt! All their thoughts and musings only serve to uphold their vile nature! For they do not retain God in their thoughts, and from The Holy they are far removed! "
"I have poured out My spirit, yet they refuse to drink! I have spoken to them, yet they shut their ears to My voice! I have sent to them My messengers, yet they cast them out with great anger and violence, persecuting and slandering them! Behold, even the least of these, My servants, have been mistreated by these so-called people of faith! - THEY HAVE SURELY HATED ME!"
"Therefore I shall indeed remove My hand, and My spirit shall return to Me... Behold, from every individual who refuses to give heed to My voice and embrace My correction has it departed already.
Yet let all those who remain in My love understand and have peace. For though My spirit departs from the multitudes and the ensuing darkness be thick, though wickedness overflows and every man of pride who being wise in his own eyes is left confounded, I shall not make a total end. For My hand shall remain with the faithful, and My strength shall be revealed in My anointed... Behold, My spirit shall well up within the hearts of the penitent and come upon My chosen as a welcomed rain, and they shall be greatly increased, shining ever brighter, even in the midst of thick clouds and darkness."
6/6/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear (An addendum to “Spiritual Famine”)
"Little flock, hear and understand the will and discipline of The Lord Most High. For I tell you the truth, Pentecost has been fulfilled; behold, it has passed them by unawares. Yet for some it remains, and shall also continue until the time. For many are called, yet few are chosen. Therefore, have compassion and pray for them, beloved"
"Beloved, here is wisdom: The penitent wait and bow down in thanksgiving. Yet the arrogant and false righteous stand up proudly, declaring their deliverance, a deliverance which has already passed and shall not come. For My hand is removed and My spirit taken. For only those in whom I see of Myself shall escape, and only those caught in My embrace shall fly away.
Thus as you were made to wait, so shall these within the churches of men wait. For they wait for a sound they no longer recognize, for a call to which they have shut their ears, for a shout from Him whom they have not known, a voice they have altogether rejected. For how can one who rejects My voice then heed the call? And how can anyone who turns away from Me, in favor of another, then embrace Me when the shout is made? For they have surely joined themselves to another, they embrace another Jesus, a false christ, a messiah who looks nothing like Me! Therefore they shall surely pass through the fire, for by no other means shall they be saved.
This then is what I command you, little flock: Have compassion, and pray for your brothers and sisters in the churches of men and for the unbelieving of Israel. For they must endure much for the sake of My name. And though the day has passed, lo it has ceased for many, it has not altogether passed away. For My spirit remains with the first election, and shall be restored to the penitent after.
9/7/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship, For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear (Regarding the Feast of Trumpets)
Thus says The Lord to His servants: Beloved, hear My words, for I have indeed set you apart to do My will. Therefore you shall honor and celebrate this feast in My name. You shall do all I command you, even that which the world and other believers do not yet understand. You shall arise early, and sound this trumpet (7 shofar blasts), even as the sun breaks the horizon, doing so with great joy in your hearts.
Yet of this night, you shall blow the trumpet as the sun dips below the horizon, doing so with great sorrow in your hearts, because of that which this world has chosen in all their forsaking of Me; even as a lamentation over all this darkness which has fallen, and shall be finished at the setting of the sun upon this age of men.
Yet in the morning, your sadness shall be turned to laughter and great joy!
For the Morning Star shall arise, filling the hearts of men!...
Behold, He shall come upon the clouds with great power and glory,
And His Kingdom shall be established!...
His presence shall break apart the mountains and level the hills,
His voice shall echo throughout all creation,
And all shall bow and give Him glory!...
My children, again I say to you, you shall do
All I command you in anticipation of that day, for I am The Lord.

To Be Set Apart
2010 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - Wisdom Given to Timothy Regarding The Day of Atonement, For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Let this day be an offering of abstinence in purity to The Lord, a giving of thanks for your sins atoned for by The Messiah YahuShua; not atonement for your sins of yourselves, but a free will offering in the name of The Lord your God and Him crucified, rejoicing in the anticipation of The Blessed Hope... And behold, He shall sit upon The throne of His glory and judge the nations! He shall utterly destroy all wickedness from this world, wiping away all that is sin, and that which has led His people astray!
And that which was shut shall be opened,
And that which was open shall be shut in that Day...
Says The Lord.
From the Letter:
11/17/04 From YahuShua HaMashiach, He Who Is Called Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Indeed, all you who call of yourselves Christian cast off knowledge, and refuse to honor the appointed times, which The Father commanded you to keep holy and remember. For is it not written: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”?
How long shall you mar My image before the people?! How long shall My name be blasphemed because of you, O churches of men?! How long shall you commit adultery with the harlot and revel in the idolatries of the pagan?! How long shall you remain married to this world and all its fornications against God?! Again I tell you, ALL religions, religious rituals and celebrations, not decreed by The Father, are an abomination!"
"You wish to celebrate My name and My earthly birth, do so; bring glory to My name by your obedience, sacrificing all these things which are against Me. You wish to enjoy festivals with your family, do so; I have given you seven. And in these seven is wisdom and understanding, the very mind of God, revelation beyond words, the will of God made manifest. Yet no more do as the pagans and false teachers would have you do."
Regarding the Celebration of Christmas
12/11/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Call of Themselves Christian, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Beloved, by My own spirit shall you keep them, thereby revealing that you have truly received."
