10/12/16 – Don’t Wait or It’s Too Late

God has special “appointed days” three times a year. And today (10/12/16) just happens to be the most important, the most exciting, and the most extraordinary day of our lifetimes. See God Himself made these appointed days and told us to honor them every year. But this year, we are also in Jubilee which means God has never been closer, His anointing has never been stronger and His blessing has never been greater!

“Seek the Lord while He may be found,

Call upon Him while He is near.” (Isaiah 55:6)

Today (10/12/16) is the greatest day to be a part of on God’s calendar. My last posting provided videos for you which explained the High Holy Day of Yom Kippur and it’s significance. This is the mother of Yom Kippurs. If you have not watched them, DO NOT DELAY because once today has finished, most of us will never have another Jubilee Yom Kippur in our lifetime. They only happen every 50 years. Today’s Yom Kippur follows the shemittah and the four blood moons which were God ordained and is among the most important events between the first and second coming of Jesus.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime event that releases God’s redemption, restoration and prosperity! The favor and blessing of this Jubilee year leads us directly into the Yom Kippur First Fruits offering. There has never been a time such as this and for those who have prayed for God to move in your life, this is the time to seal the most amazing year you’ll ever encounter. God promises to open the windows of Heaven to all those who heed His promptings. If you watched the videos to understand the significance and you are reading this posting right now, it is not by coincidence. You are one of the chosen by God Almighty. He has heard your prayers, your suffering, your pleas and wishes to release pure restoration in every area of your life. But you have to act now!

Don’t wait! Today is your day! If you wish to partake in this amazing time and you haven’t done so already then make sure you do not come before the Lord empty-handed. Give your absolute best and special First Fruits offering to the ministry or charitable organization of your choice. Through God’s prompting, release what is in your hand and GET READY for the most incredible year of your life! Praise the Lord to all those who God chooses to guide into this marvelous and amazing appointed time.

For we are the head and not the tail, we are above only and not below, and we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus! Let your NEW BEGINNINGS start TODAY!

 

In The Craziest Moment

Early yesterday morning, as we heard a loud crash and ran to see, we quickly realized something was terribly wrong. At first, we thought we were dealing with an intruder as it sounded like a very big crash. What we actually heard was my dad falling when he had blacked out and was unable to cry for help. As my mom rushed to the phone to dial 911, I was holding onto my dad with all my might trying to make sure he didn’t fall any further. As dad became conscious enough to realize something was wrong, being the stubborn man he is, he tried to get up and walk. While begging him to sit down, unexpectedly another blackout occurred and I found myself trying to do everything in my power to hold him up so he didn’t hit the floor. There were no warnings to what we encountered. There were no signs that would have given us a glimpse of what we were about to face.

As the paramedics rushed through the house, they found themselves staring at a very clammy sweaty man who could not comprehend what was happening. The paramedics rushed my dad to the hospital. For the remainder of the day, he was whisked from one end of the hospital to the other having tests being performed to try and figure out the cause of the blackouts.

While dad was being wheeled for another test, mom and I decided to take a break and get some air. As we walked down a hall, I had an overwhelming sense to stop and turn back. Now of course, I’m not in the right mind frame to determine what was happening but when God speaks, I always try to listen. So I asked mom to hold on a second and I turned back. When I did, I noticed a young lady sitting in a waiting room. She was doing everything she could to compose herself. I instantly found myself by her side asking if she needed help. And then that’s when the tears started flowing. She explained that she came to the waiting room to take a minute for herself as they had just lost her grandfather. As mom came to my side, somehow – some way we had the strength to be there for this young lady. We started hugging her and just listening, letting her speak to strangers without judgement. Letting her show all her emotions so that she too could find the strength in helping her family through their difficult time.

It is in moments like these that you have absolutely no clue why this happens. We had heard the code blue. We had instantly prayed for the family and the doctors, yet at the time of hearing the commotion, I found myself being grateful that it wasn’t dad.

But there in a tiny waiting room, we found ourselves caught up in this young lady’s hurt and pain…comforting, loving, and hugging until her strength returned to face all the decisions they were finding themselves unexpectedly having to make the day before Thanksgiving.

A while later, we ran into this young lady’s family as they were being whisked to the funeral hall. The young lady looked up with such grateful eyes and whispered a soft thank you to mom and I. In the middle of their sadness, the young lady had an uncompromising peace found on her face that the other family members did not. She was going to be the rock in the middle of the family’s turmoil. God was using her to bring comfort and peace to the family.

So as you sit down to your Thanksgiving meal, I pray that Thanksgiving has a whole new meaning for you today and I hope that you realize that there is so much to be thankful for. Whether you are with family or you find yourself miles way…be thankful to the Lord for he knows the how, why and when. He will always place us where we are needed the most in sometimes the craziest of moments. But if we will listen and obey, it will always work out for someone’s good. Because in the middle of your chaos, help arrives when you least expect it and in very unexpected ways.
