Shalom Segula (Treasured Possssion)
Greetings in the name of Yeshua HaMashiach and His Father YHVH from whom all blessings flow!! Sometimes our “blessings” don’t look like blessings, but when our lives are surrendered to the One who created us, we can then know that He causes all things to work together for good to those who love Elohim and are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
We see the devastation going on all around us, yet, for the people of YHVH it’s an opportunity for us to draw closer to Him and to each other. It’s an opportunity for us to pray for our “neighbor” and reach out a helping hand to those in need. We can, by our very deeds, be a tangible extension of Elohim on the earth. We truly are a blessed people to be in the kingdom of YHVH fulfilling His kingdom purposes!!
We have entered into the month of Elul; and for those who have been studying their Hebrew Roots of the faith, we know that this is a forty day time frame leading up to Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).
A time when we deal with both our vertical relationship with our Father and His Son and our horizontal relationships with our fellow brethren. It’s a time of introspection…a time of repenting of every way that is not pleasing to YHVH.
It’s our prayer that each of us will get through this time with sincere hearts surrendered to the will of YHVH. On the Torah Calendar you will find a continuation of extra Scripture readings that will continue throughout the month of Elul. These are given to help us in our introspection.
As we pray with open hearts to receive, the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) will gently lead us in the areas that need to be made right with both Elohim and man. Let’s lift each other up in prayer as we go through this time.
We pray that as you read through the September Torah Calendar that your eyes will behold wonderful things from His Torah!!
ELUL 5780 ~ Tishrei 5781
Praise His Name!!
We love you with our whole hearts!!
Shalom & Blessings,
Pastor Mark & Tammy McLendon
