I have been amazed as a Christian at the results of studying our Jewish Roots of the Bible. Not only has what I have learned deepened my relationship with my Lord and my understanding of His Word, it has at the same time made me realize how we Christians have also had blinders over our eyes.

One of the things I have read about was a time in history when no one was allowed to have a Bible to read for themselves except for the leader. All of the learning came from what the leader would tell you. We can look back on that time in history and see how absurd that was when in reality, the church today HAS BEEN very much the same way. I say HAS BEEN because more and more people are starting to dig into the Word of God in these last days for themselves not relying 'only' on what a leader may teach us.

When I first started studying my Jewish Roots, my Jewish Messiah Jesus, and the Feasts Of God, I was met with some that were skeptical and afraid that "I might get off into wrong teaching or worse...a cult." This was no different from that time in history when no one was allowed to read the Bible for themselves. But praise God, the blinders are coming off and more and more pastors, teachers, and leaders are understanding and teaching the depth of God's Word.

Today marks a very important date in the history and in the future of mankind. Today is the New Year on God's calendar. It is called many names and one of those names is Feast Of Trumpets.

It is the day God created the world. The only feast day that is marked by a New Moon, a new moon of creation that then grows into a full moon.

It is the day that Abraham bound Isaac to offer him as a sacrifice to God and the Angel of the Lord intervened and stopped him. A ram was caught in the thicket by his horn, (trumpet or shofar) that is Feast of Trumpets, then the ram was sacrificed.

And today is the next Feast day to be fulfilled by Jesus. He fulfilled Passover when He was slain, Unleaven Bread when he went into the grave, First Fruits when He rose again from the dead, and Pentecost when He sent the Holy Spirit to man. All fulfilled in their order and the next feast day to be fulfilled is Feast of Trumpets. God is a God of order!

He said in His Word that He is coming for those that are watching. Keep your eyes on the sky and keep watching whether He comes today, tomorrow, months, or years, He is coming for His Bride. And together with Jesus, we will enter into the Marriage Supper Of The Lamb.

Revelation 19:9........Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.


  1. You are so right when you say we have to study for ourselves and not just rely on what we hear from the pulpit. There is a church near us, which is really no longer a church. They have even taken down their cross. They got a new minister who started preaching love and tolerance. Of course there were many who left, but there where also many who stayed. This "church" is now open to muslims, buddhists, atheists... who are saying there are many ways to Heaven - not just Jesus. What a change from the principals this church started out with, but people just listened to this man and didn't check their Bibles for themselves.

  2. Mari...that happened here in the Tulsa area a few years ago. A well known pastor with a huge congregation just changed his teaching right in the middle of becoming well known. Those that studied the bible for themselves left his church.

  3. You are so good in putting things down clearly and precisely. One of the reasons I enjoy your Bible Study so much :o) When I was growing up in Santa Fe many years ago the Catholic Church did not allow their people to read the Bible.

    The period you speak about was called the "Dark Ages" for a very good reason!!!!! Thank God we live in an age when so much is available to us to read, listen to, study and educate ourselves to the TRUTH.

  4. Learning about our Jewish heritage has always interested me. I want to learn more, more, more! This was very interesting and informative. Wonderful post, Sandra!

  5. Sandra, Thank you for this wonderful summary of not only Biblical History, but OUR history, our roots in Christ Jesus. What a blessing to be inscribed on the palms of His hands. Thank you....and how very blessed are those, such as Susan, who have the opportunity to study God's Word right along with you.

  6. I think you do a great job Sandra but I disagree with you on one point. The Church is the BODY of Christ and therefore cannot be the Bride. The Jews who comprise the New Jerusalem are to be the Bride.

  7. Good Stuff! I love to read blogs-I agree the church has been self focused and not outward-I'm ready for the return of Christ but is my neighbor-keep writing!!!
