Blessings to everyone! The 6th Biblical month, usually called “Elul”, begins as of the evening of 8/11. For some of our friends, this will be the first time to experience the Fall Feasts. Each year, we get to learn more and join together to worship our Master through participation in His appointed times.
The sixth Biblical month begins the traditional 40 days period of “teshuvah” – days of repentance – leading up to Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), and preparation for the fall Biblical festival and holy days. The word “Elul” is similar to the root of the verb “search” in Aramaic.
The Hebrew word “Elul” can be understood to be an acronym for the phrase “Ani L’dodi V’dodi Li” – “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” (Song of Solomon 6:3). Elul is seen as a time to search one’s heart and draw close to God in preparation for the coming Day of Judgement, Rosh Hashanah, and Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.
“The Feasts are a prophetic shadow-picture of things to come (Col. 2:16-17; Heb. 10:1). When they were given to ancient Israel, they pointed forward to future events that would occur to the nation of Israel. The spring Feast Days, for example, pointed to Messiah’s first coming, while the fall Feast Days point to his second coming leading into the Messianic Age (Millennium) and into eternity beyond.”
We will not meet at Legacy church on 3/31 due to the Passover gathering. If you would like to join us for Passover, please contact us for details.
We are blessed to have Jimmie Black lead worship on 12/2 from 7-9 pm at Legacy Church, 120 Tickey Lane, Princeton, Texas. Please invite friends and family for a time of worship and prayer.
Please join us as we worship our King.
Due to Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles), we will not be meeting at Legacy Church on 10/7. The next meeting at that location will be 10/14.
During Sukkot 2016, we discussed the meaning of the commandment to not take the Lord’s name in vain. Based on an article by Daniel Block, the attached presentation leads us into an appreciation for the way we live and the impact on others as we bear the name of our savior.
Due to Sukkot activities, Yah willing, we will meet on 10/22/16 around 3 p.m. at Lake Lavon Encampment just south of Princeton. It is a few miles south of the intersection of 982 and Highway 380. We are in the WMU building.
The Insanity of obedience Bible study began July 16th. We discussed after the meal on Shabbat.
