Highlight on Doorkeeper Ministries

Hebrew Nation Radio’s Renewed program has given me an opportunity to meet (even if sometimes it’s only virtual) some amazing people in Adonai’s Kingdom. Kelly Ferrari Mills is one of those precious ones. The story of how Kelly and I first connected is a neat testimony of just how creative Adonai is — He will even use our “mistakes!” Who is like Him?!

One day in May, I prayed that Abba would send us (Renewed Radio) a great marriage testimony to edify and encourage the Body. Meanwhile, Kelly sent an email to Grace in Torah thinking she was writing to Dr. Hollisa Alewine of The Creation Gospel. Dr. Alewine is my primary mentor and teacher. I tag and link to her material so often that Grace in Torah pops up in searches when she is Googled. I forwarded Kelly’s email to Dr. Alewine, but I couldn’t help but to marvel at this so-called “mistake.”

Kelly Ferrari Mills of Doorkeepers Ministries wrote a book chronicling her courtship and marriage to John Mills. Their marriage testimony is beautiful and poignant as it mirrors the betrothal, preparation, and marriage that we have with the Creator. The Mill’s modelled their betrothal and wedding ceremony after ancient Jewish customs to teach others about how Messiah Yeshua is the Bridegroom that will soon return for His Bride. It was filmed live and can be purchased on DVD at Doorkeeper Ministries.

Kelly mentioned her book, Chronicles of a Kingdom Courtship, in her email meant for Dr. Alewine. I knew that this couldn’t be a coincidence, so I wrote to Kelly and told her about Renewed and that I had been praying for a marriage testimony. As a new Hebrew Nation Radio (HNR) programmer, I was unaware that she was also on HNR. (It’s a very small world!) Kelly’s program is called “The Doorkeeper Hour.” It airs live every Friday at 4:00 pm PST and is re-broadcasted every Wednesday at 4:00 am PST. I’m still in awe of how Abba positions people to where He wants them, at just the right time – all for His glory!

Since this “accidental” connection, Kelly and I have continued correspondence and we were blessed to meet in person at the recent Women of Valor conference in November (2017). Kelly Ferrari Mills is a brilliant writer, author, teacher, and worship leader. I am grateful that Adonai had our paths cross so that I can share her talent with you.

Kelly has many free teachings (written, audio, and video) and worship music that you can enjoy at Doorkeeper Ministries. Besides her radio program and website, she also maintains a blog, does mission work, and takes frequent trips to Israel. Talk about a Woman of Valor! Kelly is a true builder of the House of Adonai and a minister that you need to know.

At the heart of all her service, Kelly is a worshipping prayer warrior! The name of her ministry captures this essence beautifully. She says, “I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God because a doorkeeper props open the door to the heavenly realms, helping others to gain access into the heartbeat of the Father.” (Ps. 84:10)

I like to call Kelly a “Mother in Israel.” At a time when many are arguing over minutiae, names and spellings, calendars, and conspiracies, Doorkeeper Ministries is focusing on intimacy with Yeshua and the preparation of the Bride for the Bridegroom. Her gentle and nurturing spirit is a breath of fresh air to the Body.

Here is a sampling of some of Kelly’s work. I do hope you will share this Woman of Valor with your friends.

Women of Valor 2017

Time is running out to register for next weekend’s Women of Valor (WOV) conference in Lucas, KY. Every WOV gathering I have participated in has been amazing. The sweet, gentle spirit that is present among the daughters of the Most High as they lift Him up and one another is like no other. I hope to see you there!

Join us at Women of Valor, 17-19 November 2017 as we encourage and strengthen one another on the road to Zion. With the seasonal themes of Hanukkah in mind, we will focus on gratitude, compassion, spiritual warfare through worship & prayer, persevering faith, overcoming obstacles, trusting in Adonai’s Right Hand, and the rededication of the Temple.

Click here to register and learn more. And, be sure to like WOV’s Facebook page to stay updated on future venues.

A Taste of Rosh Hashanah

This year, I developed a “newsletter” to hand out to those gathering with us for Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets/Yom Teruah). My aim was to appeal to both seasoned and new Torah keepers by giving them just enough to spark more study and discussion. Its contents are just a taste of the holiday, ending with some blessings for the feast and the seder elements.

Our evening meeting will be lightly structured around fellowship, feasting, shofar blowing, and a Rosh Hashanah Seder. (For an example of the seder, click here.)

Here is the file of the “newsletter” for reading or printing: Rosh Hashanah 2017

L’Shanah Tovah!

The Vinedresser, the True Vine, and the Branches

The month of Elul is often called the month of repentance, as it is a time to prepare for the upcoming High Holy Days of Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, and the last great festival of Sukkot. This traditional period of return is an opportunity to examine one’s life and the fruit that is being produced. What needs to be uprooted? What needs to be pruned? What needs to be nourished? It’s the season to set things right with Adonai and our fellowman. While these things should be a daily exercise, the moedim (feast days) direct the path of the righteous to dedicate this season, the time of harvest, to give an honest account of one’s soul.

The moedim center around agriculture and harvest. During the month of Elul, Adonai our King is “in the field” and people are His planting. We are His vineyard, and He is looking for fruit that will be judged at the High Holy Days. While the King is in the field, He is particularly accessible, as near as a co-laborer and a friend. Yeshua says, “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” During Elul the vintage begins; may we submit to His tender affections, pruning, and cleansing before He returns to the Throne of Judgment on the High Holy Days. His desire is for us to enter Sukkot, the figurative end-time harvest and wedding feast, clean and sealed in Him with a heart that is altogether joyful.

 

John 15:1-15  “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.  2  “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.  3  “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.  4  “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.  5  “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.  6  “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned.  7  “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.  8  “My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples.  9  “Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.  10  “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.  11  “These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.  12  “This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.  13  “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.  14  “You are My friends if you do what I command you.  15  “No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.

 

Deut. 16:11-15  and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God, you and your son and your daughter and your male and female servants and the Levite who is in your town, and the stranger and the orphan and the widow who are in your midst, in the place where the LORD your God chooses to establish His name.  12  “You shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt, and you shall be careful to observe these statutes.  13  “You shall celebrate the Feast of Booths seven days after you have gathered in from your threshing floor and your wine vat;  14  and you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter and your male and female servants and the Levite and the stranger and the orphan and the widow who are in your towns.  15  “Seven days you shall celebrate a feast to the LORD your God in the place which the LORD chooses, because the LORD your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you will be altogether joyful.
