Standing With IsraelDear friends and family in Christ,

We wish to bring to your attention that Friday Sept 18th at sundown is the beginning of the Biblical Feast of Trumpets 2009, which begins a 22 day season of prophetic events described in Leviticus 23:23-44. The last of these, the Feast of Tabernacles, will be celebrated by the nations going up annually to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of Hosts (see Zechariah 14:16-20).  Thousands of people from the nations are already prophetically making this pilgrimage!

On Friday Sept 18th, Catch the Fire Ministries will celebrate these Prophetic Feasts with praise and worship, teaching and special prayers. We will focus on the prophetic nature of God’s appointed times and their fulfilment in Jesus, past, present and future!

We encourage you to come along to Fountain Gate Christian Church, 23 Melverton Drive, Hallam for a festive night of rejoicing in the soon-coming King of kings and LORD of lords!  Come dressed in a national costume, bring a flag of your country of origin and be ready to represent your nation before the King of Glory.  If you have a shofar, banner or worship flags, bring these to offer a colourful wave offering to the Lord of Israel. If you would like to give a special harvest offering to bless the believers in Israel, come prepared.

If you cannot be there on Sept 18th but wish to learn more about the Feasts, visit www.jewishprayerfocus.info

The Holy Spirit Fire and Healing Meeting will be held this weekend on Sunday 20th September at 6:30pm at the same address.

    This is great news Jason that Pastor Danny will soon be ministering on the Gold Coast! I certainly will be there on the Saturday night and would appreciate the chance to meet yourself and Pastor Danny. As you recall, I circulated an article I wrote in defense of Danny’s comments around the time of the bushfires and I often keep our church updated on your ministry and the work you are doing in destroying the devil’s kingdom.

    Pastor: Christians should mark Feast of Trumpets
    ‘These are not Jewish holidays, they are the Lord’s holidays’

    While some evangelical leaders and politicians are urging Christians to commemorate the Islamic holiday of Ramadan, one pastor is calling on believers to join with Jews around the world next Friday in observing Rosh Hoshana – or the Feast of Trumpets.

    Mark Biltz, who specializes in teaching the Hebrew roots of Christianity, says the biblical feasts in the fall and spring calendar are not just, as commonly believed, “Jewish holidays.”
    “These are not Jewish holidays, they are the Lord’s holidays,” explains Biltz, who has recorded teaching videos, “The Feasts of the Lord,” for WND.

    “As gentiles we are also joining in the wakeup call for all Jews to return to the Torah and to Hashem,” says Biltz. “This is in response to Zechariah 8:23: ‘Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.'”

    Biltz adds: “We are asking gentiles from around the world to join our global wave of shofar blasts around the world in every time zone honoring Hashem as King.”

    “The Feasts of the Lord” have special meaning and significance for all believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, says Biltz. They were commemorated by Jesus and His apostles – and continued to be observed by Jesus’ followers in the first century even after His death and Resurrection. They also have special meaning with respect to the life, death, resurrection and return of Jesus, he points out.

    There’s still time to learn these important lessons before the fall feasts are past.
    Rosh Hashana begins Friday night, Sept. 18 this year. It is followed by Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, Sept. 27.

    “I believe these DVDs can profoundly increase the faith of followers of Jesus, giving them a new appreciation of who He is, why He came and what He expects of us,” says Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WND and the producer of the video series. “I think most people who view these teachings by Pastor Mark Biltz will be stunned by what they learn about the meaning of these feasts in our lives.”

    For instance, is it true the Bible says we cannot know the day or the hour of Jesus’ return?
    On the contrary, says “The Feasts of the Lord,” the Bible is quite specific about the day of His return – it’s just the year that remains a mystery. This misunderstanding of what the Lord said about His return is due to a simple misreading of the Scriptures – partly a result of not understanding the cultural context of the message.

    Would you like to know the specific day of the Lord’s return?

    The spring feasts – or appointed times – were fulfilled by the first coming of Jesus. The fall feasts will be fulfilled by His Second Coming – in the very near future, he relates in an engaging, informative and entertaining series of teachings you will want to watch again and again and share with your friends, relatives and fellow believers.

    Biltz emphasizes that these feasts, described in Leviticus, were not intended for the Jewish people alone. He says they are meant to be observed as well as to serve as signs of the times in which we live – reminders of the greatest events of the past and foreshadowings of the future.

    Biltz says much of the church is asleep – unaware of the significance of the feasts in God’s holy time clock. The feasts were not intended to be abandoned by believers after the coming of Jesus. His followers observed them in the First Century. It’s time to rediscover them again as the hour of His return approaches.

    The fall feasts began Sept. 30 with the Feast of Trumpets, or Rosh Hashana. Christian believers will be stunned by the importance of this feast and all the others to follow when they view this unique teaching video by Biltz, an expert in the Hebrew roots of Christianity.
    “Just as the spring feasts were the dress rehearsals for Messiah’s first coming, the fall feasts are the dress rehearsals for His Second Coming,” says Biltz.

    Biltz says far from telling us not to be concerned about the time of the Lord’s return, the Bible over and over again commands believers to be “watching” – and provides some shocking and amazing hints for the discerning student.

    The video series pinpoints the specific day on the Hebrew calendar for the return of Jesus. The only unknown, according to Biltz, is which year that return will occur – though he makes the case it is very near.

    Biltz says most of the church is unaware of this very specific prophetic time clock offered by God to the human race in the Bible. Because of this, he believes many Christians will be surprised rather than watching with anticipation and hope, as the Bible commands.
    “Your faith will be renewed or heightened to new limits by these teachings, I predict,” says Farah. “These are powerful videos – unlike anything ever produced before.”

    It is good that you both encourage and stand with the Jewish people, as they certainly remain a distinct part of God’s purposes because of Abraham (i.e. beloved for the father’s sakes). There is also (undoubtedly) worthwhile value in understanding the feasts etc. both from a redemption and an end-times perspective.

    However I do wish to note that it is not good to advocate the -observing- of feasts, times etc as a necessary part of the Christian faith (see WND in “Responses” section and some articles in the “jewishprayerfocus” link provided by this web page).

    Paul says in Galatians 4:9-11:
    But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

    Also Col 2:16-17
    Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

    There is a distinct difference between the old and new covenants. These verses from Paul, inspired by the Holy Ghost, were written to counter just such claims as “Christians should mark the feast of Trumpets” (see “Responses”). He distinctly calls the observing of these things by the Galatians “weak and beggarly elements”, and a means of bringing themselves back into bondage. Observing these days and times as part of our Christian “obligations” is not right: Paul was -strongly- opposed to this, and so ought we to be.

    Blessings,
    Lorne
