Adam to My Eve

As I had mentioned in my previous post concerning my brief bout of insomnia (which I’ve now corrected thanks to God’s wisdom and answered prayers), I have spent the start of this secular new year in great contemplation. It’s clear that the world as we know it is changing so quickly in ways that fit perfectly with the warnings Jesus gave us in Matt 24 and in Revelations, that it is without question a year that will be unlike many others. So many of our freedoms, dreams, pleasures that we used to enjoy are being adulterated and it’s important as Followers of Christ’s Words that we spiritually prepare ourselves to stay “equally yoked” with Jesus to make it through until He takes us home.

waiting 4 loveJust as in Noah’s days, Lot’s days, and Moses’ days, there are circumstances which are not in line with what God had planned for us and we’ll need to prepare to be set apart from so much worldly distraction. This also has profound implications for how and who we choose as our mates. Personally, I find it extremely challenging in this derogatory environment to interact with a suitable Christian man who is fully aware of the secular times and is preparing in The Word and Holy Spirit for what’s to come. It’s hard being a single Christian woman who isn’t willing to compromise when most men can’t wait for an easy “target” to enjoy & disrespect at the same time. It seems like no one is interested in simply spending quality time to learn about each other and grow together in Christ and form a lasting union. We’re so busy trying to keep our financial heads afloat, seeking fulfillment in secular groups that can never keep us warm at night, and forgetting Our Creator who lovingly formed bonds of love for us to enjoy with each other. I often grapple with whom could I trust my heart to share with on this earth when so many relationships fail for lack of honesty, infidelity, abuse, disrespect, and superficiality. The “spiritual wickedness in high places” (Eph. 6:12) that we currently face is so prevalent, I sometimes wonder if it would even be wise to still believe in finding my “better half”….

At the end of the day, I have to keep my heart guarded (Prov 4:23) as the days grow more evil until the end. However, I’m still a woman in Christ and I still have a special place in my heart & soul for “the Adam to my Eve”. No matter how cold the world becomes, I’m still a woman with depth, passions, warmth, and aspirations to share with the right man in Christ. Of course, this is all said knowing that it is completely under God’s Perfect Will for my life, and I am prepared, just as Esther was, for my Bridegroom Jesus, whether an earthly groom is also included in my future. I don’t want to be without oil in 10 Virgins Parablemy lamp as 5 out of the 10 virgin brides were in Jesus’ parable (Matt 25)! Plus, in all honesty, knowing prophecy & how close time is to Christ’s return, it’s not that long left here in this world anyways, lol! Hence, I will press forward in Christ’s strength through the highs and lows of this single season….

But, it would be nice to walk hand-in-hand with a godly man someday…. ūüėČ

Happy New Years…?

2012Why do we celebrate New Years Eve/Day?

While the world parties in drunken bliss, counting down the last seconds of the year, have you ever stopped and wondered why New Years Eve/Day is celebrated? Even if you & your loved ones are resolved to enjoying a more conservative transition into the new year, when was the last time you questioned why is it even in¬†existence? As Christians, we know God reveals so many truths in His Holy Word (Bible) about what His Will is, and surprisingly New Years Day is no exception…

Is December 31-Jan. 1st the ending/beginning of the year for God?

Exodus 12:1-3,11¬†¬†“And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying¬†This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.¬†Speak unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for a house:….(11)¬†And thus shall ye eat it;¬†with¬†your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it¬†is¬†the LORD’S¬†Passover.”

Did you know God told us in His Word when He began the year for us, 10 days before Passover?? As a small note, Passover is one of God’s Holy Feast celebrations (Leviticus 23) to commemorate how He utilized the blood of an unblemished lamb to save the Israelites from God’s 1st born plague against the stubborn¬†Pharaoh¬†of Egypt. The literal Passover lamb was a forshadow of Jesus Christ being our final and spiritual Passover Lamb, covering us who believe in Him as Savior in his blood over the cross (lamb covering Israel’s door posts in Egypt). Jesus’ sacrifice saved us from the death of sin just as the lamb’s blood saved the Hebrews from the 1st born plague God sent over the Egyptians. We presently don’t need to sacrifice lambs in honor of Passover as Jesus was the “final sacrifice” for all sins (John 1:29, Hebrews 9:28). However, Jesus did instruct us to remember His Last Supper in honor of how He was to save us through His death & resurrection (¬†Mark¬†14:22-25, I Corinthians 11:24-26).

Therefore, God began His New Year when Passover was celebrated in the SPRING season, when nature blossoms anew! This is in complete contrast to Dec. 31st-Jan. 1st in the dead of WINTER! Hence, again, if God told us His year begins 10 days before Passover, where did traditional New Years Eve/Day come from & why are we (especially Christians) celebrating it?!

For more intense study (including historical evidence), I’d invite you to review this video and pray over what is being revealed to you. God loves us too much and sacrificed too much to keep us in the dark about things which are not pure in His sight. Freedom of Choice is a gift from God, however He always provides us wisdom & truth to base decisions on. Let’s be mindful of what we are indirectly celebrating and paying homage to. Why not spend some time meditating on this and resolve this year to live in God’s truth? You’ll be truly blessed as a result!
