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!
My primroses are finally awaking after quietly sleeping all summer. Yah, help us to awake to you to the joy of your fall feasts after having come through our own long, dry season of spiritually lukewarm sleepiness!
Despite the intense summer heat, my begonias have been blooming faithfully and non-stop all season long. Yah, help us to bloom for you even in the spiritual desert drought that surrounds us!
More ever-blooming begonias bursting with joy and life. Yah, may your joy be our strength at all times no matter what happens to us.
As the cooler weather of fall arrives, the chrysanthemums come alive bursting with joy to encourage all those who gaze upon them. Yah, as the days get darker and colder spiritually, help us to be lights shining in the gross darkness of this world!
The chrysanthemums are a hardy fall flower that can withstand all but the most severe frost. They keep blooming despite rain and cold. Yah help us to bloom brightly during the cold, dark gloomy seasons of life, so that those around us can see and marvel at the inner fire of your Spirit that buns brightly inside us.
More mums smiling happily at the world. Yah help us to keep smiling perpetually for you!
Not sure what these flowers are. Maybe someone knows. But who cares. They’re beautiful and that’s all that matters. They glorify their Creator by growing and blooming where they’ve been planted. Yah, help us to do the same!
More begonias showing not a care in the world by just doing what they do best—blooming! Yah, help us to keep our eyes continually on Yeshua and to do what you’ve called us to do for the glory of your kingdom.
Look at this gorgeous and sumptuous dahlia! What joy and pleasure it brings to all who gaze upon it. Yah, help us to be like a beautiful flower garden that you’re pleased to gaze on and which brings you great joy!
This foxglove has taken a beating this summer, but I keep watering it and it keeps blooming. Yah, pour out the water of your Spirit on each of us, so that we can continue to bloom through the hardships and rigors that life throws at us!
This plant (again, I forgot the name of it—someone please tell me) isn’t a flower, but it’s leaves look like flowers. The tag on it said it would grow to only 18 inches tall. Well, it’s now almost 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide! It has greatly expanded and overgrown the pot I planted it in. It’s obviously a happy, healthy plant. Yah, help us not only to grow and bloom joyfully where you’ve planted us, but to expand our borders as we help to advance your kingdom to those around us!
