Christendom and the Sin of Jeroboam

K. Gallagher:

A great message by Pete Rambo for the season of Elul. May YHWH grant us all a heart of repentance and a desire to turn back toward Jerusalem. May we join in unity and forsake our petty separations that stem from pride.

On occasion, friend and fellow Messianic, Tzefanyah ben Yochanan, has visions that are prophetic in nature.  This morning my email had a detailed vision that he had yesterday, and it triggered some thoughts.  Here is the majority of that email,

Today @ 8 AM Eastern time Yom Rishon (Sunday) August 23 I had a vision. I was standing and talking to hundreds of people. As I spoke I began to share that it is time to bury the hatchet of all the doctrines that divide us. I began to share that there are many gray areas in scripture, but we have taken those areas and made doctrines out of them and used them to declare ourselves having a truth that everyone needs that I have a corner on. I shared how when we do that we create separation between each other. We as the people of Yosef are…

Homeschooled

love-booksA Quick Thought to Ponder

As the sun was setting at the close of last Shabbat, I sat outside with a group of women for a Rosh Chodesh (New Moon) celebration. (I plan to write about our New Moon gatherings soon; they have been such a blessing!) There was one lady in attendance that expressed her newfound awakening to Hebraic things. She mentioned that though she had visited with one Messianic Jewish group, she felt strongly that the LORD wanted her to first learn at home. I pondered this for a moment (for it can have both pros and cons) and then it dawned on me…

Perhaps the Creator has similar thoughts about us?

Why have many of us been led to homeschool our children in recent decades? Many do so because it protects and shields our children from the world and secular humanism. The Bible and prayer are restored to the classroom. Children receive the one on one attention they deserve. No child can “slip through the cracks”. The best curriculums can be chosen. The interests, gifts, and learning style of each individual child is recognized and emphasized.  And the list goes on and on.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. (Ps. 32:8)

Is this not what YHWH does for us too?! Are we not also being “homeschooled” by the Creator?

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. (John 14:26)

The majority of the people that I’ve met that are returning to the Hebraic roots of their faith, at least in part, have learned much just by reading their Bibles at home and listening to the leading/teaching of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).

We have the greatest Teacher! And He usually begins our education at home.*

We are the homeschooled children of the Most High! 

“These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. (Dt. 6:6-9)


* Don’t misunderstand. I’m not suggesting that you leave the fellowship you’re with or that you isolate yourself from gathering together. Even homeschoolers often have a “co-op” they meet with once a week. (Hint. Hint.) It is also good to be a part of a homeschooling group (i.e. a local congregation) if at all possible. So please don’t take this analogy too far. :)

Book Review: Know the Time Change Your World

Barry Miller Book

Is it just me, or does time seem to be moving at an accelerated speed? The summer has flown by in a blink of the eye. I know people say that time seems to move faster the older you get, but as of late, even young people have been expressing a sense of not having enough time. Perhaps we are all too busy? Or maybe time encompasses more than we realize.

I’ve certainly had very little time for writing (for that I apologize), but I have managed to squeeze in some reading. And that’s what I want to bring to your attention today. Speaking of TIME, Barry Miller was kind enough to give me an advanced copy of his new book, Know the Time Change Your World: The Reappearance of the Seven and Fifty Year Biblical Cycles. (You can find a copy HERE on Amazon or HERE at Barnes Noble.)

I have enjoyed his book immensely and I’ve learned a lot. Those of you familiar with the Creation Gospel by Dr. Alewine will especially find Mr. Miller’s book intriguing. Know the Time Change Your World is based in the patterns and rhymes first given to us in the seven Creation days and extends into the feasts of the LORD. But where Dr. Alewine takes these cycles and actions deeper into the Spirit realm, everyday life, and Biblical interpretation, Mr. Miller reveals yet another facet in the business and financial aspects of life. For me, they are two sides of ONE coin. He teaches us not only how to discern these patterns in our own economy, but also in our personal finances.

I first met Mr. Miller through my blog and email correspondence. After visiting and reading his blog (see his new website here), I was amazed by how the Holy Spirit had been revealing the patterns of seven to Barry in a similar fashion as Dr. Alewine. Now, don’t misunderstand. The Creation Gospel and Barry’s book are VERY different. They are related because both use the Creation model for their foundation. (Which is where all good hermeneutics and teachings should begin… in the beginning.) Thus, one would expect to find connections because the ONE Holy Spirit has inspired, stirred, and moved the same way from Day One.

Many of us are searching for how to properly handle our finances and business dealings from a Hebraic (Biblical) perspective. Having spent years in the business sector and in Bible study, Barry Miller has some unique insights that should be appealing to not only Hebraic Roots followers but also to the Christian church at large. By giving friends and family members Know the Time Change Your World to help them make wiser financial choices, you will also be introducing them to the LORD’s Sabbath, calendar, and Torah. It’s a win-win in my opinion!

Have you ever wondered about the seven-year gap between the economic struggles of 2001 and 2008? What does Joseph have to teach us about personal finance today? Is YHWH’s (the LORD’s) calendar more than antiquated ritual? Does it have significance in not only my spiritual life but also in my secular life? Mr. Miller carefully takes us through the Bible and history to show us that the Beginning indeed has set the precedent for all time, even the end. (Is. 46:10)

The many “sevens” and even the greater cycles of “fifty” do matter just as much for us today as they did for ancient Israel. And I believe the church is becoming ripe for this message. Consider all the recent teachings and books on the blood moons and the Shemmitah years. Some are being called back to the cycles, patterns, and rhythms of our Creator. The unrest and immorality of the world are shaking many out of their complacency. And our great Elohim (God) is using people such as Mr. Miller to get His Word out to the masses.

As most of my readers are aware, obedience to the King of the Universe brings blessings. I haven’t met one person that doesn’t desire for the Creator to bless them in every aspect of their life. The problem is that too many of us are ignorant of the principles and laws set forth by YHWH (the LORD) that will cause us to reap such benefits.[1] We lack wisdom and thus make poor decisions that cause us setbacks in many areas of life, one of which is our finances.

After reading Miller’s book, I looked back through my life with the seven-year cycle in mind. I could clearly see how my lack of knowledge of the Creator’s calendar resulted in poor financial/business decisions. But not anymore. Know the Time Change Your World has sharpened the tools I already have acquired from Torah study. But even better, I have gained new ones!

Know the Time Change Your World is divided into three parts. In my opinion, Part III alone is worth the cost of the book. (But without the foundation of Part I and II, you’d be lost, lol!) Seven chapters will take you deep into the story of Joseph and the seven and fifty-year biblical cycles. It is EYE opening! Even seasoned Torah keepers will find a deeper revelation of not only Joseph but of themselves. Buy this book and share it with friends and family; you will not be disappointed!

Do you need an economic reset? Do you need to move from chaos to rest? Would you like to be able to make better decisions and have better discernment? God’s creation and His calendar have all the answers! Allow Barry Miller to give you the simple keys to this understanding in his new book.
