Let us rejoice

Let us rejoice on this last day of Passover, remembering that Jesus the Messiah, the holy Lamb of God, was sacrificed for our sins, was resurrected from the dead, and now sits at the right hand of God interceding for us as our great high priest. One day soon, He will come again to establish His millennial kingdom on this earth where truth and righteousness will dwell.

“Be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.” – James 5:7

Hava NagilaThere are many Jewish Cubans (nicknamed “Jewbans”) like myself who’s ancestors first settled on the island of Cuba fleeing the Spanish Inquisition in the 15th Century. Here is a new version of Hava Nagila performed by Cuban singers and dancers (possibly descendents of Spanish Jews) within a backdrop of Old Havana, Cuba. In this video, they have incorporated the Cuban “salsa” rhythms. “Hava Nagila” (Hebrew: “Let Us Rejoice”) is a popular Hebrew folk song that is traditionally sung at Jewish weddings, and Bar Mitzvah’s.

The Rapture of the Church

Spirit-Lifting Thoughts for Today_150 x 150_jpg“For you know perfectly that the day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night.” “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore, comfort one another with these words.” – 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 5:2

The events described by the apostle Paul in these verses is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the Rapture of the Church.

When Jesus died on the cross, rose again, and ascended into heaven to be with God the Father, He told His disciples that, one day, He would return again. Therefore, we believe His promise and eagerly await His second coming, the rapture of His Bride (the faithful in His church), and the establishment of His millennial kingdom on the earth.

The word RAPTURE comes from the Greek word harpazo, which translates into a “catching away” of believers. The moment Jesus returns everyone will know; every eye will see Him coming in the sky. Some will be glad to see Him, while others will be afraid for their time of judgment has come. His mighty voice will shout from the heavens and the angels will blow their great trumpets.

The dead in Christ will be resurrected from their graves first, and then those of us who are still alive and remain will be instantly be given immortal bodies to fly up to meet the Lord in the air, which is the atmosphere between heaven and earth. Halleluyah!

Because no one knows the day or the hours of Jesus’ return, we need to be ready at all times by watching and living sanctified lives. Those who don’t have a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, or have not prepared their lamps with oil (like the five foolish virgins*) , will be left behind to experience the Great Tribulation, wrath of God He is sending upon the wicked of this earth.

If the Lord Jesus comes back today, will you be ready? If not, repent of your sinful ways and invite Jesus to become your Savior and Lord of your life. Amen.

Happy Feast of Tabernacles 2012

We want to wish everyone a happy Feast of Tabernacles which begins at sundown this Sunday, September 30th and ends at sundown Saturday, October 6th.

Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles is celebrated each fall, and commemorates the time that the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness before entering the promises land. Traditionally, individual families build small huts on the streets or on their rooftops (as shown above), and shielded them with palm and willow branches.

The Feast of Tabernacles (Hebrew: Sukkot) is the last of the seven biblical feasts which were commanded by God to be observed each year. It is also known as the feast of ingathering.

Leviticus 23:1-2; 33-36 instructs us to keep the Feast of Tabernacles as a perpetual holiday:

“And Yahovah spoke unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, concerning the feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts…The fifteenth day of this seventh month (according to the biblical calendar) shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD…”

Traditionally, the followers of God have built temporary booths outside their homes where they will intermittently pray, worship, and partake of family meals for seven days. Before Christ’s advent, this feast reminded the children of Israel of God’s goodness and provision for them during their 40 years of wandering in the desert after they had escaped their bondage in Egypt. Today, those of us who are followers of Christ the Messiah, it reminds us of our escape from the bondage of sin and our current journey in this world as strangers and pilgrims as we await the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. When Jesus comes again, both Jewish and gentile believers will rejoice when He returns during the Feast of Tabernacles and establishes His earthly eternal reign as the King and Lord of all the world. The tabernacle of God will finally be with men according to Revelation 21:3…

“And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

You shall rejoice before the LORD.

According to Leviticus 23:39-40, the Feast of Tabernacles was the final harvest feast of the year and a joyous time of thanksgiving. People rejoiced and carried braided switches made of a willow branch, palm branches, and bits of myrtle, which they waved about as symbols of God’s harvest blessing. When the final harvest of souls occurs just before the return of Christ, we too will enjoy a great time of rejoicing as we behold the second coming of Christ and the establishment of His millennial kingdom.

If you would like to study further regarding the Feast of Tabernacles and the other feasts commanded by God to be observed each year, order your free copy of “The Seven Biblical Feasts”, by Pastor Luis Yosefus. Simply email us with your postal address to request your copy at no charge or obligation.

Again, we pray that you have a joyous Feast of Tabernacles!

The Consummation of All Things

heaven“He said to me: “It is finished. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.” -Revelation 21:6

All Christians should be looking forward to the consummation of all things. That is, when Jesus Christ the Messiah returns again, destroys the wicked kingdoms of this world, His faithful people are gathered in, truth is triumphant, and He sets up His eternal kingdom upon the earth as the King of kings, and Lord of lords. His great work is accomplished, His people enter into their abodes of blessedness, and the arrangement of human affairs is complete.  What a glorious future we have in store for us!

That is what Jesus speaks about in Revelation 21:6, “It is finished. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.” The attributes implied in this language makes it clear that Jesus is divine. He is saying, “The setting up a kingdom in the lost world began in Me, and it ends in Me. The glorious and triumphant King.”

To Him who is thirsty.

Even now, He is still drawing people to Himself. Are you thirsty for God’s salvation? There is still time to receive it today. He offers it freely (at no cost). All you have to do is receive it by faith in what Jesus has already accomplished for you on the cross. Salvation is compared with a fountain that flows in abundance, where all may freely satisfy their thirst, if they choose to do so.

If you are already a born-again follower of Jesus Christ, rejoice and keep yourself focused on the future consummation of all things. If you have never received Jesus as your Savior and Lord, today is the day of salvation. Pray right now and ask Him to forgive you of your sins, and commit your life to Him as your Savior and Lord.
