On several occasions I have shared the amazing beauty and depth of the Stu Lowndes’ videos. This morning I was again drawn to search them out and spend some time pondering the cavernous depths he opens with Scripture connections, imagery and music. ~ Masterful, leading to worship!
Enjoy this video and then go to his YouTube channel and drink the rich depth of other topics explored in verse and music.
Numbers 9:15-23 explains in detail the travel habits of the Children of Israel in the wilderness. The abbreviated version is that they followed the Pillar of Cloud. When the Cloud moved, they moved. When the Cloud stood still, they camped.
Some camp locations were mere days long. Others, like Kadesh Barnea, were lengthy, up to 19 years.
Imagine having lived in a location for a year or two and the cloud suddenly moved. You would have had to make the decision to move or to stay. While most moved, I am sure that there were those who, at every move, decided to stay put. Kadesh must have been the hardest! Houses had been built, stables had been fortified and even orchards planted and harvested from. Then, boom!, time to move.
This Hebrew roots/Messianic walk is much like that journey through the wilderness. We’ve been pulled out of Egypt in a glorious but difficult awakening, Continue reading “The Moving Cloud and Difficult Truth”
Whether we like or don’t like what the Torah says is immaterial. It is still TRUTH. It is the definition of righteousness.
It is okay to wrestle with it, but in the end we have to make a decision: obey or disobey. We are accountable for every jot and tittle.
“But this I confess to you, that according to the Way (which they call a sect), I worship the God of our fathers, believing everything written in the Torah and the Prophets.
Acts 24:14 TLV
The house of Israel’s rebellion was not against the house of Judah, but against the house of David. See 1 Kings 12:19. In coming to Yeshua Ben David, we begin to heal this divide, but there is a next and greater step of allegiance:
If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of this people turn again unto their Lord, even unto Rehoboam king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of Judah.
1 Kings 12:27 KJV
Do you really want to take steps toward restoring the Kingdom? Do you really, really want to see Messiah on the throne?
Then, here is the answer: make personal sacrifice and begin going to Jerusalem for the feasts… even if just once every year or two!! Help others get to the feasts. Send fellowship/congregational representatives!!
On that note, stay tuned for an opportunity to go up for Pesach and the 3rd B’ney Yosef Congress. Details in the next day or two…
Theological contortionist and doctrinal gymnastics aside, the seventh day Sabbath has not been changed (Ex. 20:8-11). The feasts of the Lord remain in effect (Lev. 23), and eating unclean still brings curses (Is. 66:16-17).
Please. Read what your Bible actually says, not what man made church doctrines say it says.
Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the Lord , because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.
Hosea 8:1 KJV
The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left.
Isaiah 24:5-6 NASB
The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
Psalms 19:7 NASB
