Message from our Pastor:
YAH’S RESTORATION FELLOWSHIP
Last week I sent out a call to announce a time of weeping, prayer and fasting for the weekend of August 8 & 9. However because of a tragic loss in our group we have rescheduled our time of fasting to August 29 & 30 so that we can give our whole attention to this call.
After we have our lunch fellowship on Sabbath the 29th we will shut the kitchen down at 2:30. At 6 PM we will meet for a time of fasting and prayer. Sunday morning we will meet again at 10:30 AM. The facility will be open all day for prayer and we will meet again at 6:00 PM for a final time of prayer.
Here are some reminders about our need to be broken because of the urgency of our circumstances.
Psalm 119:136 - Rivers of water run down mine eyes, because they keep not Thy law.
Jeremiah 9:1 and 13 – Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people! ... Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein.
Jeremiah 14:17 Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them: Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease: for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very painful blow.
Isaiah 22: 4, 12-14 Therefore said I, Look away from me: I will weep bitterly, labor not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.
Joel 2:12,13 Therefore also now, saith Yahvah, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto Yahvah your Elohim: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and it grieveth Him of the evil.
Joel 2:16-18 Gather, the people sanctify the congregation, assembly the elders, gather the children, and those that such the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth out of his chamber and the bride our to her closet. Let the priests, the ministers of Yahvah, weep between the porch and the altar, let them say, Spare Thy people O Yahvah, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is thy Elohim? Then will Yahvah be jealous for His land and pity His people.
Ezekiel 9:4,6 And Yahvah said unto Him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. Slay utterly old and young both maids and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary, Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.
During the upcoming days if anyone needs a quiet place to get away for prayer, our facility can be made available.
Note: Our time of joint fasting and prayer has been postponed. We will post when it is rescheduled.
