March 2017 Newsletter - "Knowing Yah's Seasons" by Pastor Brad Nottingham
Greetings Saints, Again, another month goes by and we are continuing to seek the truth of our HEAVENLY FATHER and worship with the HOLY SPIRIT and to allow the mind of YAHSHUA to take over in our daily thoughts, HALLELUYAH!!!
We are really excited to see and hear what is happening around us. We pray for everyone’s physical and spiritual health as we enter into this new season. On a personal note, I am at awe by the natural signs that YAHWEH has produced to coincide with HIS glory coming back to earth. I am so much at ease knowing that our DIVINE DESIGNER, CREATOR, and OVERSEER of everything is in full control. As a family functions in the natural with a mother and father, YAHWEH functions in HIS earth in a spiritual understanding through natural events of mother nature.
A lot is taking place on earth right now. There is a great spiritual war happening between good and evil, that we must be tuned into so that we can be the overcomer. Rev.17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
The times are upon us, the season is evident for those who have eyes to see and hear what the HOLY SPIRIT is saying through the events in the world right now.
YAHWEH has always moved for HIS benefit, for HIS children for HIS victory on HIS appointed feasts. Therefore, it important to know HIS feasts and to know the season we are in. This is a jubilee year, a year of restoration to all things for the people of Israel.
Lev 25:8-14 And thou shalt number seven Sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession. And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbor, or buyest ought of thy neighbor’s hand, ye shall not oppress one another:
YAHWEH’S feasts and festivals celebrate the miracles that have occurred throughout human history. Passover celebrates the Exodus from Egypt. Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai.
The festivals are named after the miracles that they commemorate. The festival of Passover is named for the miracle of YAHWEH skipping over the Jewish homes in the plague of the firstborn. The festival of Shavuot, literally “weeks,” is named for the seven weeks that our ancestors counted between the Exodus and receiving the Ten Commandments. The festival of Sukkot, literally “booths,” commemorates the safety of clouds that formed a secure booth-like environment for HIS chosen children in the desert.
YAHWEH gave these festivals names that reflect the seasons in which they fall. Passover is called the festival of ripeness. Shavuot is called the Festival of the Harvest. Sukkot is called the Festival of Gathering.
We see the connection between HIS feasts and festivals and how they are joined together to the natural seasons YAHWEH created. The festivals celebrate miraculous events, and the seasons during which they fall are not coincidental. The Torah emphasizes this link, and by our calendar, these holidays are always celebrated in their respective phases of the harvest cycle.
Through these seasons of life, YAHWEH wants HIS feasts and festivals to be a part of our daily activities now and forever as HE states in Torah!
Lev 23:1-4 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts. Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the Sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
Deu 5:29 Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would fear Me and always keep all My commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!
Of the Ten Commandments that YAHWEH gave Moses at Mt. Sinai, five of the commandments are for HIS children to live a morally correct natural life with each other and the other five commandments to live a spiritual life with HIM on a daily basis. There is a balance YAHWEH wants us to live while we are here on earth. As we use the Torah to make us more spiritual or more moral, we are making this earth a habitat for YAHWEH to dwell, as in the garden with Adam, a spiritual manifestation in a natural surroundings, IN HIS CREATION, HALLELUYAH!!!
As we go deeper, our whole life is centered around our relationship with YAHWEH, HIS only begotten son, and the Torah, the Law that governs ALL of HIS creation, everything we know now and forever. When our passion for truth dwells in us and the world can see it we are bringing the kingdom to earth and everyone around us can see that the living YAH, the divine designer, the creator, and overseer of everything is alive in us!!! What an honor, to be the living tabernacle.
Prepare yourself, be aware of the supernatural occurrences happening around you and see and hear spiritually what YAHWEH is doing on HIS earth.
We are thank all of you who continue to seek and find the truth, the ones who are faithful, and the ones who do not let the enemy have any part of stopping you from receiving your blessing that has been pre-ordained for you .
Come visit us at www.forerunnertv.com and hear the trumpet Dr. Michael Petro sounding out in the year of jubilee. And as always: Have a wonderful time being the blessing you have been created to be. HALLELUYAH !!!
Shalom Blessings, Pastor Brad
