Shalom, we will have a special guest this week, Kenny Russell of Bulldozer Faith from Israel. Yah willing, we will meet on 2/22/20 beginning at 3:30 p.m. at Legacy Church, 120 Tickey Drive, in Princeton. Kenny will speak during the meeting and after dinner. We will plan on dinner from 5:30 – 6:30 this week. We will not have the Revelation study this week.
At the KHD meetings, we will be studying the book of Revelation using the video study by Dinah Dye and Ryan White called “Revelation Unmasked”. In addition, we will use the book “The Book of Revelation Through Hebrew Eyes – Lost in Translation Volume 2” by John Klein and Adam Spears. The study will be after the meal time on Shabbats.
Kehilat ha Derech will be observing the Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkot from 10/13-10/21 at a private camp. Lodging is limited. If you want further information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name, phone number and number of people in your group.
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.”
