Shalom Segula (Treasured Possssion)
What a beautiful season of remembering the victory that comes when we stand against the siege of paganism and the refusal of assimilation. When we truly learn from our history, we can avoid the pitfalls that our forefathers fell in.
The recurring message here at our assembly, as well as at the Shine Your Light Conference with Bill Cloud last weekend, was that we must walk the kingdom message as a community because that is the way it was designed to be walked from the beginning.
This truth is all the way from the beginning in Genesis to the end in the book of Revelation.
From the inception of River of Life Tabernacle over thirty-five years ago, our founder and pastor Bill Goff, stressed the necessity to be a strong and tight community for the kingdom; continually walking in the oneness that Yeshua and His Father walked in. Being one even as they are one.
John 17:11b, 21, 23 Yeshua prays, “11b …Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as we are. 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. 23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.”
Yeshua continually affirms in John 17 that this oneness and unity in the community testifies to the world that YHVH loved them and sent His Son Yeshua as the redeemer and restorer. Have you ever considered that walking within a community in unity is also witnessing to a lost and dying world that Yeshua is the Messiah? Another motivation to do it the way it’s been designed to do. HalleluYah!!! When you can, please take the time to read John 17.
We believe that through this season we will continue to see that the victory is ours as we realize the battle is His!!
