Shalom Segula (Treasured Possession)
We are nearing the end of counting the Omer and approaching the next feast of YHVH…Shavuot (Feast of Weeks/Pentecost).
This year’s counting has truly been a journey; one that has often caused us to stop and reflect about what our forefathers were going through at this very season 3500 years ago.
Truly Paul, spoke the truth when he shared what YHVH told him when he implored Him to remove the thorn from his flesh. He said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 2:9)
Many that we gather with have attested that through their pilgrimage toward Shavuot, “Truly YHVH is faithful and He never fails.” HalleluYah!!!
About 2000 years ago, on Shavuot, Acts chapter 2 records that the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) was given to those who were keeping the feast in one accord.
Yeshua commanded His disciples in Acts 1:4-5 not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, “Which,” He said, “you heard of from Me; for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
Yeshua goes on to say in verse 8 “but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
The Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) is what gives us the power, wisdom, and comfort that we need to walk in this life as disciples of His. It also gives us the enablement to gather in the harvest of nations in this end time.
As we look around at the devastation that has been hitting all around the globe, we now more than ever, need the power of the Spirit to fill our lives.
Praise His Name!!
We love you with our whole hearts!!
Shalom & Blessings,
