Yet another wonderful congregation out in LA that is shaking things up in the world one Jew and Gentile at a time! Now, I am not on the same page with everything about this ministry (ie. using the Hillel calendar to observe the Feasts of YHVH or calling men "rabbi") but there is still a lot to glean from this ministry and the messages. I ESPECIALLY love the Esther Ball they host each year. What an extravagant affair! The point is, though, to use the talents the Father has given us to manifest a major outpouring in all things for Him. So check them out: Fusion Global. Have fun and be inspired!
This morning, on the day of our Messiah's resurrection and becoming the firstfruits offering, I sit alone with my littlest babe. On a day of holy convocation and a day to do no servile work, most (including the rest of my family) are in church worshiping the Messianic resurrection mixed with the name of a pagan fertility goddess and rituals commemorating eggs dyed for hopes of new life for the following year. For a long while I have wanted to go screaming through the streets trying to yell what I have learned about these things and that mixing what our Messiah did with these traditions cheapens the story and dulls its amazingly bright light, but I have sensed this morning the story of Joseph ministering in my heart to keep from uncontrollable tears.

I found this insightful article online regarding the Feast of Firstfruits, which begins tonight...the celebration of Yeshua's resurrection and the firstfruit offering to be waved before our Heavenly Father! I was just studying the Scriptures and remember, the instructions regarding this feast are to hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.
As a card idea for the kids, I bought a package of pearled barley from the grocery store. I'm planning on making little sacks of grain, and rolling up a note inside with the barley, as a more tangible example of the feast day we are celebrating. Very simple, but yet so was Yeshua's first coming. His glorious coming will be soon...His first coming was in humility.
