I love having family traditions, particularly at this time of year. One such tradition is to begin the Advent season by attending Seattle Pacific University’s concert, “The Sacred Sounds of Christmas.” Their selected music reflects sounds from around the world, as well as the familiar hymns that stir our hearts. I find this to be a wonderful opportunity to begin the Christmas season with a focus on the anticipation, realization, and celebration of the birth of our Savior who came to set us free.
There is so much taking place in the world. The atmosphere is filled with hostility, hatred, murder, and terrorism. The world looks to governmental leaders for a plan to counter the rising tide of evil. Mankind wants to be comforted by the false sense that the “enemy has been contained.”
We need a counter attack that turns the enemy’s strategies into confusion.
The hour in which we live is strategic and we understand that we have been called for such a time as this! We will not miss God’s direction or His guidance in our prayers. We will not miss His heartbeat in this moment.
Thousands of christians celebrated jerusalem’s annual feast of tabernacles!
Black lights and sensational music, dancing, prayer, charity, a march of thousands of colors from more than 80 nations – a march in solidarity with Israel; such was the scene of the 36th annual Feast of Tabernacles conference and celebration, hosted by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) from Sept 27-Oct.1. The event brought more than 5,000 people to the Israeli capital, including more than 50 pro Israel Christian parliamentarians and government officials from more than two dozen countries.
