Where I live, after an intensely hot summer that began while it was still technically spring, and probably the driest summer in my lifetime, the cold nip of fall is finally in the air. HalleluYah!
With the arrival of the autumn season, we are reminded of the inexorable movement of cycles of the creation that YHVH Elohim, the Creator, set in motion many thousands of years ago. No matter what man does, he cannot stop these cycles. This points to the omnipotence and sovereignty of Elohim, and at the same time illustrates the smallness and weakness of men.
Think about it. The great and proud leaders of the world with all of their political, military, religious and economic power cannot stop the turning of the seasons or the flowers from blooming! All that they are and pretend to be is merely a superficial facade speaking to the silliness and vanity of humans. The Creator sits in heaven and just laughs at them (Read Psalm 2.) In the big spectrum of things, how can we really take them seriously? YHVH Elohim is still in charge in spite of who they think they are. This fact alone should give us reason for a selah moment.
As I stroll through my garden, I see the flowers blooming, the grass growing, the nuthatches and chickadees carefully selecting seeds out of the the bird feeder, the squirrels jumping from tree to tree, the robins eyeing and then carefully pulling earthworms out of my well-watered grass, and I hear the wind rustling in the trees overhead. All these cycles of life that YHVH set into motion a long time ago continue as they have and man can do nothing about it. Each is fulfilling its divine purpose and destiny as the Almighty ordained. Each one, like a symphony, plays its part in the orchestra of life as conducted by our Father in heaven, and man is powerless, thankfully, to do anything about it! The only thing that the right-minded person can and should do in response is to stop, reflect and to worship Elohim and take hope that he’s still the one who’s in charge—not men!
With the arrival of fall, the fall flowers celebrate the arrival of YHVH’s fall biblical festivals (the Day of Trumpets/Yom Teruah, the Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur, the Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot and the Eighth Day/Shemini Atzeret. Are you getting ready to celebrate the fall festivals that prophetically point to the second coming of Yeshua, the resurrection and glorification of the saints, the marriage of the Lamb and the establishment of his millennial kingdom on this earth after having destroyed the Babylon the Great New World Order end times Antichrist system?
Please join my family and I along with the flowers in my garden in rejoicing over the arrival of fall and the autumn biblical feasts!
