As we write this month we are preparing for the Spring Feasts that are approaching quickly. But first comes Purim…a beautiful time to celebrate the victory that Israel experienced by the mighty hand of YHVH through a faithful daughter of Zion.

Esther showed great courage in the face of possible death!!! She is a testimony of loyalty to her Elohim and her people. There is much that we can learn from our forefathers, and the story of Esther is no exception. 1 Chronicles 22:13 says, “Then you will prosper, if you are careful to observe the statutes and the ordinances which YHVH commanded Moses concerning Israel. Be strong and courageous, do not fear nor be dismayed.” 

We have a strong tower and fortress in the Elohim that we serve. Esther was prepared in her life to face the challenges that would come. However, the three days that she inquired of YHVH and fasted, along with the others that she called to join with her, is where the battle was really won.

The old saying is so true, prayer is not preparation for the work; prayer IS the work. The value of Spirit-led prayer is a great emphasis in our community, for without it we would be wandering blindly through this life. Esther discovered its value as she rose up in faith with a determined purpose that if I perish, I perish. HalleluYah!!! We, too, have been gifted with this same opportunity if we’ll inquire of the Father for His direction. Praise His Holy Name!!

While Purim is on Tuesday, March 7th, River of Life Tabernacle will be telling the Purim story on Shabbat, March 4th. We have many exciting things planned for that day and invite you to come and celebrate with us in this joyous celebration.

We pray that each one receiving this month’s Torah Calendar will be blessed with a spirit of encouragement through the Word as we near the end of the feast cycle and begin another one with Passover/Pesach. May your hearts be renewed and refreshed in the love of Yeshua by the power of the Holy Spirit/Ruach HaKodesh.

Attached is the March Torah Calendar as well as the Read through the Bible in a Year Torah Calendar. May the light of Yah’s countenance shine on us as we study His Torah of truth together!!
