Battleground Earth 16: Yom Kippur - The Day of Atonement - David Mitts

​ "The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "On exactly the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement; it shall be a holy convocation for you,  and you shall humble your souls   and present an offering by fire to the LORD. " You shall not do any work on this same day , for it is a day of atonement, to make atonement on your behalf before the LORD your God. " If there is any person who will not humble himself on this same day , he shall be cut off from his people. " As for any person who does any work on this same day , that person I will destroy from among his people. " You shall do no work at all . It is to be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. "It is to be a sabbath of complete rest to you, and  you shall humble your souls ; on the ninth of the month at evening, from evening until evening you shall keep your sabbath.""  Lev 23:26-32 (NASB) Click here to listen to " Yom Kippur - Th

Battleground Earth 15: Yom Teruah and Justice - David Mitts

23 Again the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,  24 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.  25 ‘You shall not do any laborious work, but you shall present an offering by fire to the LORD.’” (Leviticus 23:23-25 (NASB)) Click here to listen to “ Yom Teruah and Justice ” In these unjust times, God  has made time in His schedule to  connect with us and allow us to activate His kingdom reality.  We are entering into the  Fall Feasts of the Lord, beginning today with the first Yom Teruah.    What I want to explore beyond the basic  understanding that the Feasts of the Lord are His feasts and His events  and  to  access them as  a  breakthrough in justice in these admittedly unjust times . I know that on the surface, blowing a shofar or raising a shout to the Lord may seem disconnected from justice but  eating a cracker o r drinking a bit of wine or juice could

Battleground Earth 14: Vows and Inheritances - David Mitts

"And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD, and said, "If You will indeed deliver the people of Ammon into my hands, then it will be that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the people of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD's, and I will offer it up as a burnt offering.""   Jdg 11:30-31 (NKJV) Click here to listen to " Vows and Inheritances " Last chapter we shared about the issue of legitimacy, rejection, and the forging of a leader through the fires of rejection. Jephthah was born outside of the wedding covenant to Gilead and an unnamed harlot, an  ishah   zona ”.  We saw how rejection was an essential part of destiny for Jephthah and how leaders are often built out of the fires of affliction. Jephthah was raised up as a Judge in Israel to deliver Israel from the Ammonites, whose name means the mob.   The mob employs the power of bullying  and rejection.   It was the mob that  screamed “crucify him”
