 LAST DAY? What last day?

Dear Mishpocha (family),

Today, on the calendar that I follow for the Feast Days, it is the last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, following Passover and then First Fruits (Lev 23:9-14). For some of you, Easter comes tomorrow and you will be celebrating the Resurrection then. To reconcile the two, one can also read I Cor. 15:20-23 where Paul speaks about Jesus being the First Fruits. Either way, those of us that follow the God of Israel and our Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) rejoice in the Son overcoming evil and paving the way for all of us to return to the Father! HalleluYAH! May all of us join together in rejoicing that HE has RISEN!

For those that are not familiar with the Feasts described for all His people in the Scriptures, let me explain a bit concerning the ponderings of Pam on this day of Unleavened Bread. This is the day that the Israelites crossed the Red (Reed) Sea. In Exodus 14:9-10 it says:

“9. Then the Egyptians chased after them [the children of Israel] with all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, his horsemen and his army, and they overtook them camping by the sea, beside Pi-hahiroth, in front of Baal-zephon. 10. As Pharaoh drew near, the sons of Israel looked, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they became very frightened; so the sons of Israel cried out to YHVH.”

Read that scripture again….do you feel that you are at the edge of a sea of circumstances with the enemy close behind and there is no way to cross over to the other side? Do you feel that there are enemies behind you that are drawing near, step by step, ready to conquer and overwhelm you? Well, there are many of us feeling the sand wash away beneath our feet as we stand waiting for our salvation! Just as the Mighty Hand reached down and parted those seas so that His people in that day could walk through on dry land, He is faithful to do so for us today.

Read the words of  our King as he brushed aside the waters: Exodus 14:13-15 says,

“13. But Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of YHVH which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. 14.  YHVH will fight for you while you keep silent. ” 15. Then YHVH said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to Me? Tell the sons of Israel to go forward.”

Now……it says in Exodus 14:19-22,

“19.  The angel of Elohim, who had been going before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud moved from before them and stood behind them. 20. So it came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel; and there was the cloud along with the darkness, yet it gave light at night. Thus the one did not come near the other all night. 21.  Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and YHVH swept the sea back by a strong east wind all night and turned the sea into dry land, so the waters were divided. 22.  The sons of Israel went through the midst of the sea on the dry land, and the waters were like a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.”

As you read these verses, let us realize that WE stood at those waters as well! We stood there then and we stand now at the waters of freedom. We are told to NOT FEAR and to STAND and see HIS SALVATION! If we KEEP SILENT (get that part Pamela?? slapping my hand upside my head – QUIT BELLYACHING – OY VEY!) Even today there is a pillar of cloud and of fire….surrounding us as we go forward. HE encompasses us and will lead us through to freedom!

So, today … as we emerge out of this festival season, let us recognize and walk forward ~ away from whatever enemy chases us in our pursuit of freedom! Let us keep our eyes on the prize and let us not be weighted down by unbelief!

 

 

Sing the song of Moses with me …. and claim your REDEMPTION!

Blessings family,

~Pamela~
