Long Overdue!

Shalom, Friends,
It seems like forever, since I have found the time to post any updates.  I will attempt to remedy this situation in the coming weeks.  I have a daughter who would like to help me in posting updates and so she will stand in for me to help out.
     We are currently observing the first of the spring feasts of Abba Elohim.  Passover started last night.  Now some of you must be wondering that if the church celebrated Easter last month why are we celebrating Passover this month.  It really is quite simple if you are willing to do your research and then be willing to change over to Elohim's calendar.  Not the Jews calendar but Yahweh's which he gave to His set apart people.  His feast days are a direct line to His prophetic time table.  Messiah Yahshua came the first time as the Lamb of Elohim which takes away the sin of the world.   He did this through the conception at Hanukkah and then being born during Yom Turuah or Tabernacles (not Christmas.  Are you willing to worship the Father in spirit and Truth?).   He died as the Passover Lamb starting the week of Unleavened bread.  He did not die as the Easter bunny and has nothing to do with that pagan idolatrous celebration.  Look up the references to Easter.  Elohim tells His people He wants nothing to do with how the pagans celebrated their gods or mighty ones.
Deu 12:30  guard yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire about their mighty ones, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their mighty ones? And let me do so too.’1 Footnote: 1See also 18:9, Lev. 18:3, Jer.10:2, Ezek. 11:12 & 20:32, Eph. 4:17, and 1 Peter 4:3 
Deu 12:31  “Do not do so to יהוה your Elohim, for every abomination which יהוה hates they have done to their mighty ones, for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their mighty ones. 
Deu 12:32  “All the words I am commanding you, guard to do it – do not add to it nor take away from it.1 Footnote: 1See also 4:2, Prov. 30:6, Rev. 22:18-19.
That mixing of religious ceremonies is an abomination to Him.  It has nothing at all to do with our hearts being in the right place and Elohim knowing what is in our hearts.  It all has to do with what is in the heart of Elohim.  It explains how the Groom wants His bride to be.  Yahshua tells us if we want to demonstrate our love for the Father we must walk as He walked.  He walked in perfect obedience to the Father's instructions as given in Torah.  If you say Paul says we are no longer obligated to keep the law then you are calling what Yahweh says is good, and perfect and just, something evil.  Paul is only one witness.  You cannot use more of his letters to prove your point.  Something must be established by 2 or more witnesses.  Besides I stand with what the Messiah says over Paul  (Paul never said the law was done away with if you do your homework and He kept Torah as well.  You can see my earlier posts about why Stephen was stoned and about Galatians).  Messiah says that He did not come to do away with the law in Matt. Besides if you do away with the Law you are taking away from the Scriptures.
 Mat 5:17  “Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.1 I did not come to destroy but to complete. Footnote: 1The Law and the Prophets is a term used for the pre-Messianic Scriptures. 
Mat 5:18  “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.1 Footnote: 1Lk. 16:17. 
Mat 5:19  “Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. 
Ok, Please be diligent and see if Easter or Christmas has to do with pagans.  You can look at sites from Too long in the sun or 119 ministries.

I will say, where we are currently at, things are beautiful. Here are some of the birds we have seen.

Some of the beautiful creation around us.

 I don't remember if I posted pictures of my last two paintings or not but here they are:  Changed into His image:  metamorphosis
 The Lion of the Tribe of Judah.  There is also a lamb in the clouds with a dove and a couple of angels and a serpent.
 My second daughter was married last Sept.  We look forward to heading back to MN in a couple of weeks to be with Ben and Michaelle for a while.
I hope to be done writing my book on being set apart by Tabernacles this year.  I also have a couple of paintings I would like to start and I have started a curriculum with some workbooks but do not know when I will  have any of this ready as I must finsih what I have already started first.
Until next time may you seek the truth and not be deceived.  Search out the Scriptures apart from your
churches' doctrines.  They may lead you astray.  
1Pe 5:8  Be sober, watch, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 
1Pe 5:9  Resist him, firm in the belief, knowing that the same hardships are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
