Yom Kippur 2011

There is a powerful biblical secret connected to Isaiah 55:6, where God says through His prophet, "Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near." For generations its been taught this means between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur the Lord is especially close, ready to judge us favorably and prepared to release an outpouring of mercy, grace, salvation and financial blessing. This connects us with the deeper teaching of the shofar, which is God’s advanced notice to us that it is time for our reward. Thus, ancient Jewish wisdom teaches that right now is the season that we should draw near to God; particularly by increasing our prayers and acts of charity.

We invite u to join Pastors Larry & Tiz this Friday night, October 7th and then again on Sunday morning October 9th as we gather together to honor, celebrate and teach the revelation of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. This appointed time on God’s calendar is considered the most solemn of the High Holy Days. It’s also the day of Jubilee when divine health, financial freedom, debt cancellation, unexpected income and unusual miracles are released into your life. Our service on Friday will include the welcoming in of the Sabbath, special praise and worship, a time of prayer, ministry, and the beginning of the one day Yom Kippur fast. During this magnificent evening we will also participate in the traditional ceremony of the washing of the hands. It’s symbolic of baptism and the breaking of every contact with failure and every curse that is blocking your blessing.

Our Sunday service will continue this anointed theme of ministry. Pastor Larry will teach the deeper truths of Yom Kippur and how it is the foundation for the revelation of the 7 Places Jesus Shed His Blood. Again, it’s your time for removing every curse and releasing every covenant blessing of God. (Leviticus 16) We anticipate powerful spiritual, financial and healing breakthroughs through-out both services and encourage you to come expecting signs, wonders and miracles. Don’t let this window of opportunity pass you by. Plan to celebrate with us on Friday, October 7th at 7pm and again on Sunday, October 9th at 10am to experience the promises, power and presence of God.

Today's Prayer
Dear God, Thank you 4 having a purpose 4 my life and 4 telling me what Your expectations are thru the Bible. I know You must be disappointed w/me many times, when I fail 2 meet Your expectations of me. I can identify w/that from a human standpoint. When I expect a family member 2b responsible and 2 do something that they do not do, or when they make wrong choices in life, I am very disappointed. Sometimes I feel frustrated or angry and other times heartbroken. Help me 2b kind-hearted and long-suffering w/them, like You are w/me. Guide me 2 handle those disappointments w/integrity; 2 remain quiet when I should and 2 speak up when I should. Please give me the thoughts, words, and actions You want me 2 have. And God, please 4give me 4 disappointing You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

The Valley of Baca
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 2, by Os Hillman

"Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion" (Ps 84:5-7).

There is a spiritual law in the Kingdom of God. Every great leader in the Kingdom will pass through the Valley of Baca. Baca means to weep. It comes from the Hebrew word,bakah (baw-kaw'); a primitive root; to weep; generally to bemoan.

However, Baca is also a place of springs. There is nothing better on a hot day when you're thirsty and weary than to drink water from a mountain spring. It refreshes. It renews. It gives you a second wind to continue your journey. Those who commit themselves to a pilgrimage with God will experience the Valley of Baca. But in the midst of Baca they will discover that in this valley they will also drink from a very special spring that refreshes with a different kind of living water.
It becomes the source of "secret things in hidden places" described by the prophet Isaiah (Isa 45:3) reserved only for those willing to journey on the Great Pilgrimage with God. Once you drink from this spring you will be energized in your spiritual man from strength to strength. Each Valley of Baca will result in a new spiritual spring from which you will drink. It is handmade just for you by God. But know this?it will be used to provide a refreshing drink for others you will encounter who are also on their pilgrimage.

Ultimately, Baca leads to the presence of God. There is something about being in a place with God that results in our weeping and crying out to Him. Do you find yourself in this place with God today? If so, know that His springs are also available to you. Ask him today to give you a drink from His spring only available in the Valley of Baca.
