Sight the New Moon monthly rhythm
The observable sliver after it's dark phase
Consider his Provision that has been poured out throughout the month. Practice observing and watching the sky for his signs.Not a Shabbat. Does not start a new week cycle. Observable sliver moon. Renewed in him. We reflect his light.
Rest on the 7th day weekly rhythm
The 7th day of each week (Saturday) and also the 7 annual High Shabbats that fall on different days of the week.
The commanded Rest we are to take in the middle of work not done. A reminder that we have been set free of the taskmasters. The
sign of betrothal / royalty. Friday evening to Saturday evening. Rest and no usual work. Time to remember Creation and our Creator and who we are. One of the Biblical Feasts – one of Yah's Holy Days!
"Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year. Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:) And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field. Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before Yahovah your Elohim."
Ex.5:14-17 (Lev. 23:1-3)
Melchizedek priests are called to DO the Royal (Melchizedek) Law. This is part of our "good works" Ye'shua told us to do so everyone could see and praise Yehovah in heaven (Matt.5:14-15). A huge part of the Melchizedek Law and repenting is ditching the pagan holy days and turning (teshuvah) to embracing the rhythm of Yehovah's Mo'edim, the Biblical Feasts and Festivals! We believe this is where the rubber of repentance hits the road, is most seen and will cost you the most.
But we must learn HOW to celebrate the mo'edim. There are many great teachers who preach ABOUT the Mo'edim or the Feasts of the Lord, but there are not very many teachers who are teaching HOW to actually do the Mo'edim. Learning about and celebrating (or rehearsing) them are two totally different things. One might become convinced through a teaching to observe the mo'edim, but then the question becomes: "how exactly do I do that?" How does one actually transform information into delight and bring the rhythm into our homes or and into our communities?
A head full of knowledge does not give anyone the right to bust into the Most Holy place and begin to operate as a priest. We must be trained. First in the outer court, then moving to the Holy Place –– then to the Most Holy place.* There is a process to learning how to be a priest: LEARN.LIVE.TELL.
First, we must LEARN about Yehovah's ways and his rhythm (da'at), then we LIVE in it (repentance and ye'da). Then (and only then) are we ready to TELL others about the rhythm ("fishing for men" / the Great Commission). To get LEARN.LIVE.TELL. out of order causes chaos, leads others astray and makes your work ineffective for the King!
We hope, by our example and through our teachings, to give people permission to explore the Feasts of Yehovah with delight (Isaiah 58:14). Teshuvah Ministries is passionate about hosting Yah's Mo'edim in a manner that invites all the senses into the experience––with the goal of impressing Yah's ways on our children and in their hearts so they always remember him (Deut. 6:7)! Our observance is our repentance.
