As the days roll by, almost as if they run together, we are getting closer to United in Worship. About 3 years ago I felt a little discouraged by the way the Messianic, Hebrew Roots, Hebraic Roots, whatever you want to call this movement, or religon, was going. A lot of emphasis on knowledge and study and little on worship. The same pride that people use to blast the Church, or blast the Jews, they were using to speak on why they were right and someone else was pagan, or a sinner, or whatever they wanted to call it. For me, the differences that are amongst us are our strongest alliance. However, it isn't normally seen that way, nor is it used as a tool for us to grow together, but used as a weapon against one another to drive us apart. Two people in a room, would have a verbal argument over a theological view point, unable to see each others side and find some form of insight from it. Those same two people will go home, or in their car and turn on the same worship music and worship. So I felt the need to put together a series of events where the focus was on worship. Dance, Music, Scriptures, Congregational, Presentational, etc. all the various elements of what is worship. What was meant to be small has quickly blossomed into a larger event with artists like Jonathan Settel, Ross, Teshuva, and many more. As well as speakers like Rico Cortes, Ed Harris, Scott Diffenderfer. Coming together, not to be right, cause none of us are always right, but to worship. To praise the Creator the way he created us to, through gathering together, and studying, praying, dancing, singing. I am looking forward to this event, to be able to come into a place with others I may have never met, and become closer. Having Jonathan Settel join us is an amazing testimony of just how great our God is. YHWH has brought one of the pioneers of Messianic Music into an event to help some of the next generation through the wisdom and knowledge he has gained. On top of all the artists that have agreed to come, we have almost sold out, and we are still more than 30 days away from the event. It's amazing what YHWH is doing. I am looking foward to an amazing time of worship together! Hope to see you there.
It seems that the names of God are sweeping across the United States. I specifically say names because there are currently many pronunciations of the Father's name. Just like a different culture pronounces differently the same name. While some see this as a sense of division, and use it for such, I see this as 12 separate tribes of people being awakened. It isn't a coincidence that we are seeing things of Biblical proportion at a time such as this. The Father is calling his people out, and awakening them. It is an exciting time to live in. Whether or not I see Messiah in my lifetime, it is a time where we can make a huge difference in the world. Are you producing good fruit? Are you working for the Father's kingdom? You don't have to be in "Ministry" to work for His kingdom, everything we do and everything we say no matter where we are should be for His kingdom. I will leave you with some songs to check out, some new and some old. It appears there is an awakening happening:
Yahweh- by Hillsong
Yahweh- by Desperation Band featuring Kari Jobe
Yeshua- Beckah Shae
At Your Name (Yahweh) - Phil Wickham
He is Yahweh - Cory Asbury
Yahweh- Shawn McDonald
So the month of October has come and gone and November seems to flying by just as quickly. My family and I spent October on the road making our way from Nashville, to New Mexico and back. Stoping in Okalahoma for Sukkot with Lion and Lamb Ministries, Amarillo with First Freedom Baptist, Albuquerque with Restoration Fellowship, Carlsbad with Kehilla Yeshua, Austin with Teshuva Israel, Dallas with Beit Yeshua, and Houston with Breath of Life Ministries and Becoming One Stick in His Hands. It was a crazy month that brought many amazing memories. Now that we are home we have all come down with a flu like virus that had been making it's way around the Nashville area while we were gone. We still aren't really over it, but plan to stay secluded till the end of the weekend and hopefully be completely restored. The album is finished and should have a release date soon. Looking like maybe December 12th. That will give Abiron time to send out all the pre-orders before it is available to retailers. The first single goes out to radio stations December 1st, so keep your ears out for Made For Dancing. There have already been some stations asking for the single release date. Hoping to go back into the studio in spring to finish up my third album. Who knows maybe Ross will join me for a couple new songs as well! Stay tuned for more soon! Till then off to get ready for Shabbat!
