Rejoice Before the Lord


Leviticus 23:40 ** And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God….

The next verse instructs the children of the Lord your God to keep this last feast of the season forever. Most teachers of the law of the Lord your God, Pastors, Ministers, Priests and even Rabbis fail to follow the truths of our inescapable Creator God. The greatest teacher and healer of the universe, Jesus Christ taught “And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tittle (dot) of the law to fail (Luke 16:17, Matthew 5:18, 1 Peter 1:25).”

We must remember the Constitution of the United States is the law of agreement and binding contract of the people with additions and changes just as the Covenant of our Lord. The major change of the Covenant occurred when the Messiah, Y’shua Christ Jesus, the Holy Lamb of Father God was sacrificed once and forever in atonement. The blood of animals which temporarily atoned for sin directly pointed to the coming Messiah who is now High Priest of the Lord your God. Jesus, meaning savior, is now anchor of the soul forever after the order of Melchizedek and priest of God Most High (Hebrews 6:20, Genesis 14:18, Psalm 110:4).  The Psalmist in 110:5 even tells us He sits at the right hand of God and will execute kings (and rulers) in the day of His wrath. This is the day of the Lord which is soon coming. The few that keep the binding contract and law of the Lord as the Holy Lamb of God who have been atoned with His sacrificed blood will be crowned with everlasting life in the soon coming day of the Lord. However, we must walk as Jesus walked to stay anchored to preserve our soul forever. This means we must love and keep His commandments, His rules, His Sabbaths and His Holy Feasts as Jesus and His Disciples honored. Only then can we rejoice before the Lord your God, in His soon coming Kingdom.

The very first Christians were Jews, taught by the Messiah, Y’shua Christ Jesus. This Lord of the Sabbath was the only Son of God born of a virgin woman by the Holy Spirit of God (Luke 1:35). Upon return of the Messiah, The Lord God will soon give Him the throne of David and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever and His Kingdom will never end. Soon after the Lord God raised him from the dead, He expanded His ministry through another Jew called Saul (Paul) to the gentiles. These first Jewish and gentile converts viewed themselves as true Jews. They regarded Jews that did not believe in Christ Jesus as renouncing the true faith of the Lord God, therefore unbelievers and apostate. Even in this age, true Jews have been adopted via Jesus Christ into the family of God (Romans 8:15-17, Galatians 4:5-7, Ephesians 1:5).  How good it is to now be true believers and true Jews within the family of God!

Jeremiah 11:15 ** “What has MY beloved to do in MY house, having done lewd deeds with many? And the holy flesh has passed from you. When you do evil, then you rejoice.”  ** Jeremiah preached the truth of our Lord to the coming wrath of Judah. His words ring desperately true as the wrath of the Lord draws near in this age for this entire world. In verse 16 the Lord says, “…With the noise of a great tumult HE has kindled fire on it, and its branches are broken.”  ** These words prophesied the destruction of the Lord’s House, the temple in 586 B.C. and again in 70 A.D. The third soon coming destruction brings destruction of the Lord’s Houses (the churches).  Many have become synagogues of Satan, the adversary of our Lord.

 There are few that are willing to listen and hear the word of the Spirit of the Lord and not the spirit of Satan. Those that listen to the right Spirit with understanding and do the will of God will overcome the prolific synagogues of Satan and will not be hurt by the second death at judgment. The Lord knows your suffering and your poverty and the slander of those which oppose you. Many are thrown into prison by the Devil that puts you to the test with persecution. However, when you remain faithful even when facing death, the Alpha and Omega, the firstborn and the last born son of God will give you the crown of life (Revelation 2:9-11).

Many of the faithful are losing hope and are fearful with their plight. However, our Heavenly Father records every tear you shed, but He is faithful and has not forgotten your desperation. You think you are poor but you are rich with the coming glory which awaits you. As mankind quickly loses memory, our faithful Heavenly Father even knows the first breath of life you took at birth and the last breath as you succumb to the sleep of death into everlasting life when Christ returns. He is always there to help you overcome daily sufferings, trials and tribulations which the Devil delights in giving you. Our Lord delights in your joyful endurance in the midst of the Devil’s adversity to overcome and remain faithful to keep the Lord’s Commandments, Sabbaths and Sabbath Feasts (Leviticus Chapter 23). True Jews that are adopted by Christ Jesus know the laws of God are to do good, true and perfect which will endure forever. James in 4:17 tells us that if we know to do good and do not do it, to him is a sin. When we do good in love, we rejoice before the Lord.

Jesus said, “For whoever does the will of MY Father in heaven is MY brother and sister and mother.” (Matthew 12:50). Our God knows your name and is calling you! Don’t turn Him away as most of the world has done! The Lamb has laid down HIS Holy blood and life to cleanse your sins. HE wants to adopt you as HIS brother, sister or mother to live forever in a new sin free Kingdom! Visit a local Sabbath keeping Church of God where you will be welcomed warmly!
