Jesus came to serve and give life to others. We can love the Father and lay down our lives for Him by serving Him.
Spring Holy Days 2013
Praise God, Tuesday evening May 14th begins The LORD’S Appointed Holy Day- Pentecost, which is called in Hebrew Shavuot. We first read about this Biblical Holy Day in Leviticus 23:15-22. Later we find Yeshua’s first disciples celebrating this day in the book of Acts 2:1-5.
Although historically this was an agricultural feast, it became associated with the day the LORD gave the Children of Israel the Ten Commandments at Mt. Sinai. In Acts 2, where thousands of Yeshua’s disciples were celebrating this feast, the same God that appeared to them on Mount Sinai in fire and glory (Exodus 19:18), appeared to them again in fire and filled them with His Spirit.
At Pentecost/Shavuot God went from reaching us through tablets of stone, to touching us by His Spirit in our hearts. God’s relationship with man has moved from the outer to the inner, and because of this we are eternally empowered to move forward in our relationship with Him.
Final atonement for sin was accomplished at Passover. The gift of the Holy Spirit was given at Pentecost-Shavuot. Hallelujah!
Shalom, love and blessings to you in Messiah Yeshua,

Messianic Rabbi K.A. Schneider
Matthew 11:12 reads “ From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force.” This is speaking of a holy violence. A fierce determination to seize the LORD and the things of the Kingdom and never let go.
The Shulamite bride cries this out when she finds her lover again “…When I found him whom my soul loves; I held on to him and would not let him go…” When we have encounters with Jesus we should hold onto Him through the energy of the Holy Spirit.
Messianic Rabbi K.A. Schneider once audibly heard the Holy Spirit tell him, “Seize my word and don’t let anything else in.” To hear more about this powerful word of knowledge from the LORD, visit DiscoveringTheJewishJesus.com and click the ‘videos’ tab to tune in to his latest message.
“It is safer to be walking on water with Jesus than it is to be on the boat without Him.” Trust Him through trials, risk, or hurt.
