"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Feast of Trumpets

is here! 
Leviticus 23:23-25

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.
Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.

As a family that believes in Jesus Christ as the Messiah...we have been slowly learning about the Feasts that are in the Bible. The feasts have been largely ignored by Christians, us included.  For the past few years, if you have been reading for that long, you may have noticed we have been marking Biblical Feasts and that may give an appearance that things have radically changed.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  It has been a wonderful journey reading the Bible and realizing the more we read, the more we uncover. 

In the New Testament in the book of Colossians 2:16-17  these verses opened our eyes.
 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. (emphasis mine)

We live with the knowledge of Hope and Faith in Him.  We celebrate in the feasts not by bonds but by looking for what is coming~and if you have read the Bible~you know it is Christ that is coming once again.
