Newsletter: Rosh HaShana 2015

Dear friends,

The fall feasts announce themselves. The colder weather season is in the air. The laws of nature are following their course. Nature is preparing itself for winter and accepts death as a means to renewal. That is only possible if death is imposed from life and renewal. If death is imposed from decay and destruction it means standstill, deterioration, evil.

And although there is an important law of nature which causes chaos and death, the life giving laws of nature are there too! Death is still reigning. The feasts of the Lord teach us that the Lord brings life where death reigns.

Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel who happily welcomes Jews and non-Jews into His world and His Kingdom. As human being He is the first one who experienced life after death. Nature’s law of destruction has been conquered by Him. And all who get to know the G-d of Israel and His Messiah Yeshua will be enabled to experience this victory over death and destruction.

I invite you to get to know the G-d of Israel and His Messiah Yeshua. And those who are introduced already I invite you to live and walk with the G-d of Israel and His Messiah Yeshua. This season is a good moment to start or confirm that. Shana tovah, a good new year!
