Shalom Segula (Treasured Possssion)
It is with great joy that we write you this evening. We are celebrating the joy of redemption because of the finished work of Yeshua as our sacrificial lamb. If we have received Yeshua as our Savior then we have passed from death to life eternal if we endure to the end. As a result of salvation we experience a great deliverance from the bondages that once held us in captivity. We can now sing the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb (Revelation 15:3).
We at River of Life had a wonderful and blessed Passover Seder and celebration of the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. We had lots of singing, dancing, and teaching. We are grateful to everyone that helped to make this feast a blessing. We pray that each of you are experiencing the joy of having cleansed your homes and lives of the leaven that represents sin and pride at this time of year. We have officially begun a new feast cycle. We often find that how we start the feast cycle will determine how we finish it. May we run the race with all diligence toward the prize of the high calling.
It is our prayer that you have a blessed and prosperous remaining feast as we count the Omer to the next feast, the feast of Shavuot (Feast of Weeks/Pentecost). The counting of the Omer connects these two feasts…redemption and the giving of the Torah, our betrothal covenant with the Elohim of Israel. We have much to look forward to when we are in covenant with Him; He does not desire to just have a visitation with us, but a habitation. His heart is to establish His kingdom here on this earth with His people Israel leading the nations to Him. Let’s say yes to that responsibility as Israel and lead others through demonstration and obedience back to the ancient path and ancient ways that were laid out before us through our forefathers long ago.
Attached is the April Torah Calendar. We trust that the Scriptures will penetrate our hearts to its very core; also, that it brings about the changes that we need to come more and more into the image of the Son, Yeshua our Messiah.
