Warm blessings and so much love and heartfelt prayers for you all from your friends here in Jerusalem!
Every year when Christmas is nearing, we are reminded that at this time of the year Jesus was actually conceived, while His actual real day of birth was at the unique time of the Feast of Tabernacles.
In the Bible human life begins at the conception, so in this way Christmas and the Feast of Tabernacles (in Hebrew: Sukkoth) belong together.
This might explain why we read in the Bible that also during the Millennium the Feast of Tabernacles will still be celebrated by the Body of Christ. For it is written:
And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles, (Zechariah 14:16).
So the birthday time of the LORD will be celebrated yearly and remembered forever!
We have started to prepare the program for the next Feast of Tabernacles in 2019 from 13th of October till 20th of October and hope to soon send you more information.
Please enjoy a taste of the FEAST 2018
It would be of course a delight for the LORD and us if you will be able to come and participate in this so important end time Feast for Israel and the nations.
Even better still if you could begin already now to inspire others to come with you. As the Feast is rather costly it is essential that we all start early to prepare to come to Jerusalem for the celebration of this Feast by setting aside each month the necessary money to be able to make it when the time of the Feast has come.
Please make this a matter of prayer these days and tell us if you are willing to try to bring “ten from your circle of friends” – “Ten from each Nation” as it is written in Zechariah 8:23 – “Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”
We bless you for all that the LORD Himself inspires you to do!
We are still praying to cover the last costs over the past Feast and we will be so thankful for your generous support and prayers.
May our LORD lead you also in this way.
