"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

What does the Bible Say-Updates at bottom of post

This post is going to be added to the sidebar of the blog. I am going to compile the studies I have on the feasts of the LORD that are outlined in Leviticus 23. Much of my walk as a believer I dismissed the feasts as the Jews feasts and therefore not something I needed to know too much about.

Then I began to study the Bible in earnest.  Below are some of the posts I have put together so far on my findings.  I am NOT anything more than someone that believes that the whole Bible should be studied and used.  Man changed the word of Our Creator and established mans version of holidays.  I am simply sharing what the Bible reveals in a manner that helped me to unlearn what I had been taught, and relearn the Bible.

I have many charts, scripture cards and such and will be adding them. Below are a list and links to the posts I have written.

Something to Think About -The date Easter is was established by Man not God.    Leviticus 23 and a brief explanation of the feasts.

Serious Comparison Between Easter and the First Three Feasts in Leviticus 23.  This gives simple explanation of each feast with scriptural information, and also explains with scripture how the Messiah fulfilled these feasts to the literal day that they were held.  This also has a chart about what happens when we receive the Messiah as our Savior and where what we are grafted in to.
Defining Words- For ever and Remember defined and has Leviticus 23 and the feasts with this. Here is a quote from that post   
We are to walk as Jesus walked.  None of this what would Jesus do nonsense, rather it should be what DID Jesus do...as His example is how we are to live. He kept the feasts of the LORD, yet pretty much only the Jews keep the feasts today. I recognize that some are beginning to awaken to this realization that if one is a follower of Jesus, one need to walk as he did.   
Blowing of Trumpets-Here is a quote from this post
In the New Testament we read that the holy days as well as the Sabbath are important because they are a shadow of things to come.
 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. Colossians 2:16-17

As a Christian of things to come would most importantly be the Second Coming of Christ, and so I find learning about the holy days is a dress rehearsal of things to come.
Feast of Trumpets- a simple post sharing the farm family participating in this feast. Here is a quote from this post.
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.  
About the Past Several Days-Part 4- This was the introduction that I gave at the four part presentation on the feasts of the Bible.  It was several questions that I asked those in attendance. Here is a quote from this post.
I appreciate that many people look at my post and dismiss me, and suggest I am a fanatic, or converting to Judaism.  I am not converting to Judaism, and I am only doing what my God tells me to do in  

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

 Have You Ever Played Cricket? This is a post that shares how the Christian holidays are similar to God's Holydays and use similar wording just enough to confuse.  It is a post where I began to realize that I was learning so much that it was time to begin posting here about my studies.  Here is a quote from this post.

 It is the LORD's Passover.    Oh and it should be kept for ever as a memorial.
And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.  Exodus 12: 14 
For ever.  And it is not only for the Jews but for all those that are of the house of Israel... 
Matthew 15:24  But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Who is Israel?
All those that call upon the name of the Lord then are grafted in.  
Romans 11  God established holy days to be kept for ever.   When they are celebrated year after year they are prophetic as Colossians tells us.
 The Pursuit of Knowledge all Began-Here is a quote from this post. ADDED 5/3/16
What was nailed to the cross? The judgments against us~ not the law.  Only what we have done in breaking it...just the same as if we get a speeding ticket and someone walks in to the court and pays for the ticket...the speeds are no longer removed, just my infraction against complying with the speed.  
The Truth Vs. Man's Traditions-Below is a quote from this post.ADDED 5/3/16 
How can we say we walk like our Savior but ignore how he kept the Sabbath.  In fact, he kept the law perfectly as our example.   In 1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments; and his commandments are not grievous.
I will be adding to this and keeping it up to date, as Shavuot (Pentecost), Trumpets, Atonement and Tabernacles need to be added in my detailed study of the feast.

Stay Tuned.

Books...as I wander

I love to read! I read while doing nearly everything else, except driving, yet I do read the horizon and all that God has created.

I haven’t been as diligent to my blog schedule since the flooding, but I thought that I would get back to what I wish to write about weekly. If I insert an additional post here and there I am fine, but the schedule will keep me and my loved ones in tune with what I am thinking and what I find important.

I do consider blogging to be such an incredible peak into our thoughts, more so than journaling ever did before. You see we can see instantly things occurring and place our viewpoint on it. I delight in knowing that my children and grandchildren can and perhaps will, be able to know me…my thoughts, my serious side, my humor, my passion for my husband and family, and my total love for my Saviour. Just ten years ago this blog journal was not really as possible as today.

So with that introduction I would like to share a book that I have completed that was a wonderful read. I just read The Remarkable Record of Job, by Henry Morris. Henry Morris is a wonderful author and I have truly enjoyed every book that I have found written by him. Job is a wonderful book in the bible, so before you delve into Henry Morris’ book read Job if you have not done so, as the first place to read the scriptures and of the scriptures is in the bible. That said, this is a wonderful read.

What books have inspired you lately? What book in the bible has the Lord used to speak to you this week?

My answers: The above book has been inspiring me, and in the bible I have been pressed to really read John, and I know that the Lord is working on me by using this book. I have been really urgently feeling that in addition to reading His word that I myself need to study the bible diligently...to define terms I do not know, to locate places on the map, to identify the people mentioned, and to memorize scriptures in this chapter by chapter study. I know that this will be a project that will take the rest of my life...and love this thought.
