Is TODAY Yashua Jesus' Birthday??



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBvFx9IrPSo



While many celebrate Jesus' birth on December 25th, this is historically the birthday of Mithra, the Sun God and is celebrated by christians, pagans, atheists and non believers around the world today.

Those who have been studying and celebrating the biblical feasts believe that YHWH's calendar reveals the true dates of past and future events.

I have shared some of the arguments pointing to His birth taking place on Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, an eight day festival.  Some of which are that "God Tabernacled With Us," on the eighth day after his birth he was circumcised, born in a lowly temporary booth like animal structure.  If He was born on the Feast of Sukkot, this would also mean that the Angel Gabriel and the Holy Spirit visited Mary the previous year during Hanukkah, the Festival of Dedication, to tell her of her pregnancy, and to conceive in her belly the blessed child.  I feel that many of these arguments have merit and add to the biblical feast days.

Here is another theory, placed forth by Jonathan Cahn, a Messianic Jewish preacher.  I have shared another post regarding his speech at the last presidential inauguration that I felt was very compelling.

He puts forth that Jesus may have been born on biblical New Year, which is the first new moon after the barley turns green in the springtime.  This year.... that is tonight.


John 8:32
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

Happy New Year!!!

On the gregorian calendar this year Abib 1 falls on April 1st (sunset March 31 to sunset April 1). The new year, according to scripture, is the first new moon after the barley turns green. The bible calls this month Abib or Aviv. Today many jewish people call that month Nissan using the names of months from Babylon during their captivity there.

Seeing the Prodigal Son Return....

I was especially interested in watching this video because I myself have been told that "I" cannot keep Passover.  Because I am not jewish, because I am not circumcised (or my menfolk aren't), and     because I am not in Jerusalem.

Here New2Torah answers this problem AND MORE!!!  His fervor takes him as he explains WHY I cannot let these things deter me.  He explains how we got where we are today, not knowing who we are, where we came from, and how we all forgot the law of YHWH.  And he shows us that YHWH told Moses, right when He gave the Torah, that these things exactly would occur.  In fact, throughout the bible it tells us the story, for those with ears to hear.



I cannot keep the Passover perfectly.
But by the grace of YHWH
I am going to try. <3

This was a homeschooling project for my eldest son.  My son has had an enjoyable time learning about rabbits and their care.  He has been learning the diligence necessary for an animals daily care and needs.

He has also taken the time to figure out the costs of building their home, feeding them and buying their necessary supplies.  And from that he has determined how much to charge to continue caring for them and raising future bunnies.  It has been a great learning experience for us.

Maewyn Succat - aka St. Patrick

A cute introduction to St Patrick
Maybe not entirely historically accurate, but will
help you start the conversation with your kids

Numerous sources included discussing the life of St Patrick 

A great overview of St Patricks life for homeschoolers with a powerful quote,
“I did not know the true God; and was taken to Ireland in captivity
with many thousand men in accordance with our deserts,
because we walked at a distance from God and did not observe His commandments.”

Includes a few more sources discussing St Patrick's relationship to the Catholic Church

It seems that Maewyn Succat was clearly moved and led by YHWH to bring His word and truth to people otherwise living in darkness and lies.  While many celebrate this day wearing green clothing, pinching one another and drinking excessively, let us remember the real man.
A man who suffered, was kidnapped, hungry and naked at times, and who ultimately found peace and freedom through YHWH, the God (Elohim) of the Bible.  And even MORE beautiful and amazing, was drawn by YHWH to RETURN to the land of his captors to preach the gospel to them.

YHWH saves... indeed.

Happy Purim everybody!

Happy Purim everybody!

Purim comes from the story of Esther, Mordecai and Haman in the Bible.  It is a joyous Holy Day.  It is a reminder that no matter what evil rises against the people of YHWH, He will provide a way for safety and survival.  In this instance there were no 'miracles' used.  But a vast array of coincidences....

Here are some happy songs to help you get your CELEBRATION ON!!!!

Hitler May Have Lived A Long Happy Life in Beautiful Argentina

Oddly, this isn't some Twilight Zone episode. 

"Newly declassified FBI documents prove that the government knew Hitler was alive and well, and living in the Andes Mountains long after World War II."

And HERE is the actual document that they refer to.


A Vista From The Andes Mountains

Psalm 83:18


Quote du Jour - J. Michael Straczynski

"Doesn't matter what the press says.  Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say.  Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right.  This nation was founded on one principle above all else:   The requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences.  When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth and tell the whole world -- No, YOU move."

Our Bees in March

Spring is just around the corner here in Washington State.  Buds are appearing on the trees, the grass is starting to grow... a few flowers are peaking out here and there.

And the bees are EVERYWHERE.  For them it is time to clean up the hive after being cooped up all winter and start taking stock of the surrounding food and water sources.

We began winter with a top bar hive, with a pretty strong cluster of Italian bees, though a little light on food stores and a langstroth hive, with a much smaller cluster of Carniolan bees and hardly any food stores at all.  I fed both hives, wrapped them up as best I could figure out how and prayed that they would make it through winter.

I was very skeptical about the langstroth hive.

But the last few weeks it was the langstroth hive that was surrounded by clusters of happy worker bees checking out their surroundings in the returned sunshine.

I assumed, because their location was slightly behind a tree, that they were colder and that was the reason for their inactivity.

So I made arrangements with my husband to help me move the hive to sunshine after work.  We would use this opportunity to feed both hives more sugar cake to get them through until the flowers really bloomed around here.

That evening, together, we were able to remove the lid.... and what we saw was heartbreaking.  The bottom of the hive was piled with dead and dying bees.  There was no food stores at all..... and then we saw why.



A mouse nest.  The mouse had clearly eaten through several combs, fouled many others, and created a huge nest in the back of the hive.  The poor bees....

We gained some joy, when we stepped to the other hive to put in their sugar cakes, finding many active bees and some sugar cake remaining from the last feeding.  We closed up the hive for the night and discussed the plans to clean, sanitize and scorch the other hive.  Then we will place 1/2 inch hardware cloth over ALL bee hive doors.

We mourned their loss.

But with the sun this morning.... we discovered that indeed, YHWH gives, and takes away...



The langstroth hive is clearly ready to hit spring with a bang!

I quickly whipped up some sugar syrup for them to give them an added boost until those flowers appear.  I'm planting everything I can get ahold of.... and once the evenings warm up things should really take off.


They were SOOOOO grateful!

And another happy surprise....

A small party of worker bees hunting for new housing.


Is there a new queen in need of a happy home?  I am eager to oblige her.

Here is a couple short videos of their happy activity....



Homeschool Unit Study - Wilderness Survival

I thought this article "Be a Grown Up Boy Scout, The Wilderness Survival Skills Everyone Should Know," was a great starting point for an excellent homeschooling unit.  Not only would be it be invaluable for your child to know, understand and master some of these skills, it would be a learning experience for most adults as well.

With some preparation you could do one of the below sections with your child or entire family each weekend or on a schedule that works for your family.

After you conquer these skills you will have enough knowledge to continue your education in this area and seek out articles, videos, books and local training groups for more advanced wilderness survival.

"We are ALL Catholic."

This is the video of the Kenneth Copeland's Annual Ministers' Conference and the pope's 'special' message which occurred on January 21, 2014.

Please pray that you are not deceived when viewing this message.  It is NOT the message of the Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit of YHWH.  It is the message from Babylon the Great to her daughters, Revelation 17 and 18.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5TwrG8B3ME#t=0


Unity with unscriptural doctrines and sinful man is NOT pleasing to a Holy God.

Quote du Jour - Hillary Clinton

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. And we should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.” - Hillary Clinton, 2003

IF you want to hear her say it....
