Looking Towards 2015 Worldwide Waves Of Praise Movement

Holy Spirit IS SO Awesome!  As I’ve worked on the 2014 WWWOPM, He’s Been Instructing and Guiding as to the Desires of God for what this movement should be.  It was a major accomplishment to combine the former website and blog into one site this year.  It was also a learning curve under the stresses of dwindling time.  For simplicity’s sake I used the same theme and background as I did previously and updated the logo.  Somehow, we just “know” when we haven’t quite hit the mark graphically.  When what we’ve produced doesn’t reflect the essence of what God Is Doing.  In that vein, He’s already Given me insights as to where to head with the graphical representations of His Heart for this movement.  Next year will bringing sweeping changes, again that will reflect His Royalty and Majesty!  Hallelujah!

Meanwhile…we are two days from the beginnings of Christmas Day at the International Date Line!

What can YOU DO to get this Desire of God’s Heart out to the masses?

It’s ALL about Him, and His Precious Gift to us of His Son.

Blessings!

 

Clarity About This Praise Movement

Greetings!  There are many people writing to discuss various aspects of this movement.  The Lord Holy Spirit Has Been Bringing Clarity through prayer and seeking Him.  This movement is a forerunner of the whole earth praising Him. He Wants the nations to cry out for Him!  To put Him before worldliness and the flesh.  It is a forerunner of “Jew and Gentile – one in Messiah.  HE Chose Christmas Day, not because it is the time of celebrating His Birth, but because people think of Him at that time, and, because “santa claus” has “gotten all the credit.”  We are infusing HIM, and raising HIS NAME on a day of pagan celebration.  More on this in the article below (For Jews, Messianic and Christians.)  I invite your comments and discussion, as iron sharpens iron.  Please see these links:
Biblical Basis (Scriptures) – The nations shall praise The Lord!
How To Participate – Discusses not making this praise fest about pride or performance, but rather a sweet and personal offering from the heart
I strongly believe in developing a deep and abiding “relationship” vs. going through motions in a public setting.  My life is laid down before Him for many years.  I’ve been through deep and prolonged sufferings, through which I’ve come to rely upon Him AS my “Everything” and FOR everything that is needed.  Worship of The Lord is a deeply personal thing but gathering together has added benefits.  Where two or more are gathered, He Is in the Midst of them.  He Inhabits our praises. There is a multiplied effect of people gathering to pray and praise Him.  I pray that His Presence Will Overshadow each gathering, and that miracles will happen!  I pray that backsliders will be touched through and through by Holy Spirit!  I pray that people who don’t know Him will be touched to accept Him as their Savior and King.
We are swiftly coming to the time, and already seeing this, when hearts will be crying out for Him during times of tribulation on this earth.  Starting and conducting this praise movement for 5 years now, has been a work of obedience.  Even now, I sit in a motel room not knowing if I am staying or leaving.  He Has Provided for me this way for over 6 years, yet I was a former Controller and Management Consultant.  I know that even if He Asked me to return to sleeping in my car in this winter weather, I would go to a library or other place where I can continue contacting His children across the earth to ask them to join in. This my daily walk with Him.  I only want what He Wants.  It is a great sacrifice to not be with my 4 grown children, their spouses, and my 12 grandchildren, yet this is what The Lord Has Required of me.  He Does not do these things lightly, but for His Purposes. He Has Asked that funds not be raised for this effort, as it is “the right thing to do.”
We must put aside the legalism and ritualism of what this is “supposed” to look like and just praise Him from the depths of our inner being.  Let us follow His Spirit and not the letter of man-made laws of what worship should look like.  This is not about performance, not about being “seen.”  Many can gather together and still be in their own personal closet with Him.  And if they are about “look at me” while singing, then Holy Spirit WILL Correct, Train and Advise.  That’s not our problem, it’s His Job.  Our job is threefold:  1) monitoring our own hearts, 2) praising Him with every fiber of our being, and 3) spreading the word about this.  However you choose to participate, is between you and The Lord!  This is just a start, and people will grow and the movement will grow over the years.  Let’s put our human minds aside and come from our hearts!
Therefore, I ask you to prayerfully consider taking His Desires, and His Requests that I’m passing through these emails to as many people as each of you can reach.  Onward!  Toward His Second Coming!  And towards the whole earth crying out for Him!
In Christ,
patty

Jews, Messianics and Christians! Let The Nations Arise & Praise The Lord!

Menorah (1)Jesus_king

For those who are Jewish or Messianic, The Lord Should Be Praised every day! For those who are concerned that Christmas arose out of pagan customs worshipping the pagan god sol invictus – the sun god – or lucifer – we are infusing our Love of The Lord and taking back the night. EVERY DAY IS THE LORD’S! He Created The Heavens and the earth!

Right now, we are in the celebration of Chanukah-Hanukah-Hannukah! It is commemorated as the Maccabees (Jews) took back The Temple from the pagan Syrians.  They  had been sacrificing pigs to a statue of Zeus in The Holy Temple.  They had to cleanse The Temple as it had been defiled and become ritually impure. It was a time of goodness triumphing over evil. It was a time of men rising up to do what was right in God’s Sight – to restore Temple worship. In a way, that’s what we’re doing, too!

Through this praise event, we are mounting a WORLDWIDE effort to GIVE GOD THE GLORY! And take it back from satan claus! Yay! Please join us!

In spite of the commercialism of Christmas, it is the single time of the year that the whole world remembers The Birth of our Messiah and honors Him with nativity scenes and Christmas pageants. It is a time when His Love Is Felt all over the world in this season of giving, and remembering those who have less. It is a time of reconciliation and mending of families. It is NOT WRONG to give Him the praise!

Yes, we must separate from that which is profane. God Examines what is in our hearts. When our hearts are overflowing with love, adoration and respect for Him, we SHOULD give Him the praise! It is time for the NATIONS to arise and Praise The Lord! Jew and Gentile – ONE in Messiah – one heart – one mind – one voice!

Our world is in such trouble.  We need our Messiah! Let us PRAISE HIM!

ONE HEART – ONE MIND – ONE VOICE!

Waves Of Praise Informational Flyer

King of Kings! And Lord of Lords!

I am continually amazed and even a bit flabbergasted as I work on getting the word out about this Worldwide Waves of Praise Movement.  I’m finding ministries, missions, churches, and secular work that is helping God’s people all across the earth.  I feel so small, and this world is just so very big.  please help us reach the world

What amazes me is seeing God’s Hand Working through countless hearts in a myriad of places.

This movement began in 2010 while I was lifted through listening to youtube videos of the flashmobs.  They were singing the Hallelujah Chorus in the malls!

“KING OF KING AND LORD OF LORDS” 

“AND HE SHALL REIGN FOREVER AND EVER!”

God Is at Work all over the earth.  New praise movements, prayer movements, books, insights, revelations, new discoveries in archaelogy, technology, science and medicine.  The world wants us to stay focused on the darkness.  I’m seeing so much good happening it brings me to tears and thanksgiving.  What an AMAZING GOD!  He DESERVES to Be Praised on Christmas!

Will you help?  Just a few clicks, sending this to your social networks or including a link to your email contacts could change lives.  It could help bring in souls that don’t know Him.  It could draw in those who are backslidden.  It could heal hearts, minds and bodies as Holy Spirit Moves when God’s people are gathered for praise.  Why WOULDN’T you want to participate?

Here’s what we’re asking.  Use this link to send out, or, use the social network buttons below.  Then, gather friends and family, and don’t forget those elderly neighbors who are alone this Christmas.  Or, those who have no one. Spread God’s Love and His Message.  That’s what Christmas Is……The Giving of His Gift to a darkened world.

I pray that this Christmas you will come to know His Presence in new and humbling ways.  May He Touch your hearts and lives with His Everlasting, Ever Faithful LOVE!  May His Glory Fill your homes!

Is There Room for Christ in Christmas?

1506602_536698876445709_95902277_n Many people have talked about “putting Christ back in Christmas,” and of getting away from the rampant commercialism, the pagan customs and more.  Here is a “God Idea” Given to me in 2010.  Since then it’s been growing expontentially!  We’d love it if you began this new tradition in your homes this Christmas.

There’s been questions and concerns that are coming up about Christmas being a pagan holiday.  Is it wrong to celebrate Jesus (Yeshua) on Christmas because it’s the pagan feast of saturnalia?  They worship the sun god, sol invictus, who has many other names but is ultimately lucifer.

Wait a minute.  The God I know and serve, CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.  EVERY day is HIS Day!  Every breath we take…is Given by Him, with every heartbeat.   HE DESERVES The Glory!

Isn’t Chanukah about the taking back of The Temple, destroying their statue of Zeus and cleansing it from defilement? Isn’t that what we’re doing with this movement?  Taking back what satan meant for evil and turning it to praise for The Lord!

Today’s Christmas has often become about stuffed bellies, emptied wallets, threatened credit reports, toys that break quickly, gimme, gimme, I want I want!  It’s about outdoing everyone else with indoor and outdoor decorations.

Yet, it is truly the season of love, more than at any other time of the year.  We sing songs to The Lord, to His Father, and to Holy Spirit.  We think about the trials Mary and Joseph suffered to bring Jesus into this world.  She was stoned, he was falsely accused of fornication.  They were literally run out of town.  These things were but a foreshadowing of The Suffering of their Son.

There is so much good that happens at this time of year, more than any other time of the year as hearts are opened and people reconcile.  Families gather and actually spend “family time.”  While The Bible Tells us to abstain from all appearance of evil, I tell you that we should be praising and thanking The Lord on Christmas and always.  I’ve prayed and prayed over the last 5 years of this worldwide praise movement.  I’ve put in countless hours in extreme circumstances with no monies to really boost this message.  Yet, God Has Taken a mere $150 spent over 5 years, and reached peoples in well over 120 countries as of Christmas 2013.

I invite you to put down the pagan customs, gather your friends and family and set aside time at 3pm in your time zone, and let your voices be heard in songs and praises, in poems and Scriptures about Him.

Will you be participating?  Let us know so we can plan where our research and outreach efforts will be targeted to for next year!

One Solitary Life

Here Is A Man Who Was Born in an obscure village, The Child Of A Peasant Woman.

He Grew Up in an Obscure Village.

He Worked in a carpenter shop until He Was thirty. Then, for Three Years He Was An Itinerant Teacher.

He never Wrote a book. He never Held an office.

He never Owned a home. He never Had a family.

He never Went to college.

He never Traveled, except in His Infancy, more than two hundred miles from the place Where He Was Born.

He never Did one of the things that usually accompanies greatness. He Had no credentials but Himself.

While He Was still a Young Man, the tide of popular opinion turned against Him. His friends ran away. One of them denied Him.

He Was Turned over to His enemies. He went through a mockery of a trial. He Was Nailed upon a Cross between two thieves.

His executioners gambled for the only piece of property He had on earth, His Seamless Robe.

When He Had Died, He Was taken down from The Cross And Laid In A Borrowed Grave through the courtesy of a friend.

More than two thousand years have come and gone. Still today, He Is The Centerpiece of the human race and The Leader of all human progress.

I am well within the mark when I say that all the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever were built, all the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon this earth as Powerfully as has This One Solitary Life.

 

 

The Birth Of Yeshua/Jesus

Christmas-Jesus-Greatest-GiftMatthew 1 

The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;

And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;

And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;

And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;

And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;

And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;

And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;

And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;

10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;

11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:

12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;

14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;

15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;

16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.

Luke 1

Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,

Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;

It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,

That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.

There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.

And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course,

According to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.

10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.

11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.

13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.

15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.

16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.

17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.

19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

20 And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.

21 And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple.

22 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.

23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.

24 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,

25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.

26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.

28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.

32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.

38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;

40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,

47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.

50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

54 He hath helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

55 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

56 And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.

57 Now Elisabeth’s full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.

58 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.

59 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.

60 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.

61 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.

62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.

63 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all.

64 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.

65 And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea.

66 And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.

67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,

68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,

69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;

70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:

71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;

72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;

73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,

74 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,

75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.

76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;

77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,

78 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,

79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

80 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.

Luke 2

1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;

23 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)

24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.

25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.

26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.

27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,

28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,

29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:

30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,

31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.

33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

Did You Know Jesus Celebrated Chanukah?

Jesus Celebrated Chanukah?  You’re kidding!   No, I’m not.

IMG_20141219_180752John 10:22-23  And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.   23 And Jesus Walked in The Temple in Solomon’s porch.

The Feast of Dedication is Chanukah, Hannukah, Hanukah!

Chanukah is the celebration that commemorates “the great miracle” that happened when the Maccabees fought the Syrian pagans who had taken over The Temple and won.  The pagans had been worshipping their pagan gods in The Holy Temple.It was considered “defiled” and “unclean.”  Pigs and other things were sacrificed to Zeus there.  It needed a thorough cleansing and rededication to The One, True God, Jehovah.  Interestingly, when Jesus/Yeshua Cast the demons into the pigs and they ran over the cliff, He Won a Great Victory that day, too.  Those pigs would have been sacrificed to Zeus, too.

They needed enough oil to light the 7 branch Temple Menorah, but there was only enough for 1 day.  It took 8 days to make a new batch of holy oil.  Miraculously, that one day of oil lasted the eight days necessary to make the new oil!  Chanukah is celebrated with 9 candles.  The center one is the Shamash, or servant candle.  It is representative of Yeshua, Who Came to Serve and Give His Light to others. Together, we are His Light in the darkness.

 John 1:3-4  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

The Chanukah victory over the Syrians is also prophetic of the history of the Jewish peoples, and of the world.  Through sins, we are often defeated and feel separated from our God.  In the end, The Lord Wins the Great Victory over evil and we will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

Remember that Jesus Is/Was/Always Will Be Jewish.  The Feasts that are celebrated in Judaism are The Feasts of The Lord.  Chanukah is also the celebration of freedom from oppression, and freedom to celebrate the religion of choice.  It’s good winning over evil, taking back the night,

“Yes, but that was Old Testament!”  God Is The God of Precision and Pattern, of Symbolism, Types and Shadows.  The Bible Becomes a Comprehensive Whole as you study the deeper meanings and symbolisms.

Are we wrong to celebrate The Feasts?  If it was good enough for Yeshua/Jesus, it’s good enough for me.   Everyone needs to make their own decisions.  As for me and my house,  I am honoring God, Yeshua and Holy Spirit and Everything They Represent.  I am thoroughly FASCINATED with them, studying God’s Precision and His Word continually.

Celebrating Chanukah, I think about how many, many times God Has Provided when I seemingly had nothing.  Suddenly!  Something I needed was 90% off at a store He Directed me to go to.  Suddenly!  That little bit of food seemed more than enough.  Suddenly!  I would find an extra $5 or $20 in my wallet that I KNEW hadn’t been there hours before.  Suddenly!  He’s Made a Way where there was no way.  Suddenly!  Unexpected help arrives. Suddenly!  A bill I couldn’t pay is wiped out!  Suddenly!  An unexpected check arrived the day before the electric was to be shut off when I was raising young children.  Suddenly!  He’s Taught me just to be still and let HIM BE my God.  I don’t have to do it all, after all.  I just have to believe in His Love for me.  I just have to sit at His Feet and love Him back.  He Does the rest while I’m focused on Him.

wop logo 1Should Jewish people and Messianic participate in the Worldwide Waves of Praise on CHRISTMAS Day?

Of course!  We worship the SAME GOD.  HE DESERVES to Be praised EVERY DAY!

How do we celebrate the lighting of the menorah?  We say these blessings, from www.jewfaq.org:

Blessing over Candles

Barukh atah Adonai, Eloheinu, melekh ha’olam
Blessed are you, Lord, our God, sovereign of the universe
Hebrew
asher kidishanu b’mitz’votav v’tzivanu

Hebrew

Blessing for Chanukkah

Do You Have 10 minutes for God – RIGHT NOW?

26-october-2012-praise-to-jesus Will You Help Lift My Arms?  I’ve often said, there are 6 people in this ministry:  God, Yeshua/Jesus, Holy Spirit, me, myself and I, and I’m tired!

I’m in the 5th annual marathon of researching and sending thousands of emails across the world to let people know about the Worldwide Waves Of Praise Movement on Christmas Day.  I’m in a motel, closeted away, working night and day.  I work until I’m read to crash, take a short nap and get back to work.  I keep pouring myself out for The Lord, and He Keeps Refilling and Refreshing me.  I spent the entire day last Christmas, monitoring and posting as the Waves of Praise went across the 24 time zones.

Let me give you an idea of the magnitude and scope of this movement.

There are nearly 400,000 churches in the US alone. I have no idea how many there are worldwide.

There are countless missions organizations which I’ve been contacting.  But, there are also many other types of organizations to pass this “God IDEA” on to.  You see, this has never been about me.  It is time that the nations of the earth praise Him for His Time is very near.

I’ve been trying to get the word out to prison associations and prison ministries, nursing homes, hospitals, senior citizen homes, children’s homes, homeless shelters, radio and tv, newspapers, and many other types of organizations.  My thought is that by reaching those groups who have many branches, The Family Tree of God will stretch across the earth in unprecedented ways.  Will you help?  Pray and ask Holy Spirit to Guide you and Show you who has not yet been reached.  There are many people who will be alone on Christmas.  Why not gather them into this worldwide praise event?  Let them feel they belong in The Family of God!  How many souls will come into The Kingdom?  Get creative for our Creator!

All that The Father and I are asking is that you forward the website www.wavesofpraise.org to your social networks, (use the buttons at the bottom of this post,) to your email lists, places of employment, churches and pastors, etc.

What an amazing idea!  It HAD to Be God!  People have wanted to take the commercialism and paganism out of Christmas for years.  This is a concrete way.

  •  Psalm 57:9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.

Can you take 10 minutes RIGHT NOW?  It might take less than that.  Let people know.  I’ll bet The Father Is Smiling already :)

  • Psalm 68:32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah

Thank you.

Santa’s Last Ride – by Patty Thomas

Santa’s Last Ride

Copyright, Patricia A. Thomas, December 6, 1999

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Mrs. Claus was pouring cocoa, in cups of green and red
While Santa’s tending reindeer, he’s put away his sled
He closes up the barn doors, and another Christmas year
And wipes his hand across his face, and with it goes a tear
Santa stumbled in the house and said, My dear I’m getting old
Flyin’ cross the stars at night, it gets pretty cold
As they shared a cup of cocoa, she saw that he was worried
He settled back and lit his pipe, and then began his story
I’ve traveled near and far, my dear, for ’bout a thousand years
This is the first I’ve felt this way, to come back home in tears
Oh the lights were brightly shining, as I flew across the land
The trees were very pretty, ornaments and candy canes
But, something’s truly missing, and I cannot understand
They’ve lost the meaning of Christmas, It’s all gotten out of hand
They rush around to buy their kids – the best things in the stores
Things kids don’t appreciate, they get all – that they ask for (toys broken on the floor)
Their homes still echo loud and clear, with now forgotten sounds
Of arguments of monies spent, there’s no love to be found
Wish they’d learn a simple lesson, get back to simple things
They don’t need nintendo, fancy clothes or diamond rings
Slippers, slicers, perfumes, too, and ties for dad galore
What they really need, my dear, is love, and love some more
Wish they’d put away the tinsel, the garlands and the lights
Learn to love the time they have, and learn how not to fight
Learn to find  – the magic of love, the feeling that giving brings
That is the stuff that heals their souls, of which the angels sing
Make their homes a peaceful place, a place that’s filled with love
‘Stead they fill their homes with things, they’ve forgotten God above
Forgotten the meaning of Christmas, the gift of God’s precious son
They get their toys, the girls and boys, the parents think it’s fun
Inside each and every one – is an ache, those presents won’t heal
Wish they’d learn the true meaning of Christmas, find out what is real
I’m not sure I can stand much more, watching the fall of this human race
They see the poverty and hunger, then they turn away (their face)
God gave us the life of his only son, to teach us how to be
If they only gave – of their own hearts, what a different world it would be
Oh, it doesn’t feel like Christmas, even though I’ve made my rounds
The hurt, the angry, the hungry, the homeless, with no beds to be found
They turn on back to their own little world, ignore all those in need
Instead they focus on what they got – in my book, I call that greed
If everyone gave just a little bit, the world would soon be healed
There’s more than enough to go around, if they’d remember how to feel
I don’t think – I can do this again, bring presents  – to those who have it all
Perhaps it’s time that Santa Claus, saw the writing on the wall
Perhaps it’s time to end this dream, of presents for the young and old
Perhaps they’d learn to open their hearts, – that’s where they’d find true gold
I think I’ll hang up my suit this year, my work is finally done
I hope someday – that they’ll remember – The Gift of God’s only Son.

Christmas Is A Pagan Holiday – Should We Be Celebrating It?

This is a deep topic.  I will provide more information over the coming year in preparation for Christmas 2014.

For now, let me post some comments I made recently:

I just came through the 4th year of “Waves Of Praise” on Christmas Day.  It Was The Lord Who Clearly Asked me to do this.  I wondered about it because I  have done in-depth studies of, and follow the Feasts.  What He Showed me was amazing.

On Christmas, a pagan holiday, people think more about Him and His Birth (even though its not His Birthday,) than any other time except Easter or Passover. People who almost never go to churches pack them on Christmas Eve or Day.  Plays, pageants, musicals, and choirs are put on that pull people in to hear about Him, worship Him and praise Him.  He Told me that ANY day His people think about Him is a good day.

It is a season filled with love and giving, and reaching out to the poor and needy.  It is a season people often step outside of themselves and their own little worlds, to remember others.  It is a time of the year that donations are at their highest, often helping to carry on the work of God in churches and ministries for the coming year.

For 24 hours at 3pm in each time zone, people just gathered together for the Waves Of Praise movement – to praise Him, worship Him, and forget commercialism, wrappings, presents and family feuds.  Which brings up another thing.  Families are often reunited during the Christmas season, with hearts reaching out past their past hurts.  So, how can we say that God isn’t in this?  Sounds like people are walking more like Yeshua at this time of year than at any other.

He Honors the intents of our hearts, and is more about the spirit of the law than the letter of the law. Also, many tv programs, movies and public concerts center on Him and His Story.  Yes, as the Body of Christ, we must remember that God Ordained the 7 Feasts.  We are beginning to restore the celebrations of the Holy Feast Days of The Lord.  After all, Jesus Celebrated them every year for the 33 years He Was on earth.  That means, He Celebrated The Sabbath on Friday nights and Saturdays over 1700 times in His Life (33 years x 52 weeks.)

But, He Is not about ritualism or legalism.  In fact, a few years ago, He Reminded me to purchase my ticket for a Seder meal.  I kept thinking I still had time, being caught up in the work He’s Asked me to do.  Eventually it was too late, and all Seder meals in this area were completely sold out.  I literally was upon my bed weeping and weeping as if I’d lost my Best Friend.  I understand the importance of keeping the Feasts and the inherent blessings. He Came to me, and Said, “I Was Told you were weeping. You still have time to go to the store and get the things you need to celebrate a Seder meal at home.  So, I quickly ran to the store.  Step by step, He Took the lengthy Seder service and Collapsed it into 30-40 minutes, covering all the basic points. ” He Did away with legalism, and ritualism and Helped me to give Him Honor.  I will never forget this.  Relationship with HIM is and always will be more important than dates on a calendar – pagan or God’s Calendar.  It is all about honoring Him, and praising Him.  At Christmas, people even get bold about “making sure Christ is in Christmas, ” and “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays.” This cements it in people that they need to stand up for their belief in Him, and perhaps it’s a form of training for these end times.

One last thought:  God IS NOT about lights, trees, ornaments, wrappings or running up credit card bills.  He’s NOT about causing families to go beyond their means.  He’s NOT about the latest electronic things, or the latest video games.  Most of them He Wouldn’t Want you to have because of their content.  God IS NOT about feeling “less than” if you can’t afford to buy presents.  Remember, He Had One Garment and no place to Lay His Head.  The commercialism of Christmas has to go.  It’s all about manufacturers hyping up Christmas so that people will feel awful if their children don’t have the latest Elmo or whatever. News flash:  Elmo’s not going to Heaven!  Make next year a simpler Christmas, more reflective of your Savior.  Buy somebody in Africa or elsewhere a goat, a lamb, or a cow.  Let your whole family get involved of “how we can help others” instead of “I HAVE to have this toy!”  Raise up a child in the way they should go……

May The Lord Bless you!

Feeling So Blessed!

me closeup (97x148)

As I look back at the last 2 weeks, and Waves Of Praise, I can only be amazed, astonished, humbled to tears, grateful, thankful..and exhausted. What God Did in Throwing Open the doors was AMAZING! I can’t begin to number the number of times He Came to me and Told me How Pleased He and The Father Are. He Told me it ended up being much larger than I had imagined. It was worth all the nights without sleep, the aching bones, the doing without food for “just a little longer” so I could get the work done. I was denied the time with my children and grandchildren at Christmas, so this praise movement could be accomplished.  I know The Lord – He’ll Arrange some special times with them all.  What are you willing to do/give up in order to be 100% obedient to The Lord?  He REQUIRES ALL.

I’ve been on a marathon of sorts with this. My body is in need of sleep. My heart and mind ready to rest in The LORD this night. Day by day, I would be astonished at what He Was Doing with this movement. I just came through a 24 hour period of almost non-stop “work” – but it was a labor of love for The Lord and our Father. Holy Spirit Guided and Directed me, and Showed me how to accomplish this task. For one person to do this? No. There were MORE. God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, me, Their angels, AND ALL OF YOU!  Even when it was finally done, and after 10:00pm on Christmas night, I had to go out in the cold night air and try to find someplace that was open that could make me something to eat.  (No – it was NOT a Chinese restaurant like in the movie The Christmas Story.)  (And I got to minister while I was there!)

God Gave HIS ONLY Son.  Jesus GAVE HIS WHOLE LIFE.  They Won’t Accept an hour on Sunday mornings.  They Want ALL of us! NOTHING WITHHELD!  GIVE HIM YOUR hearts, minds, bodies, thoughts, dreams, desires, everything you are and everything you’re not.  Give Him your fears, tears, worries, hurts, grudges, offenses and blaming others.  Give Him your time, your possessions, your homes and families and friends.  Give Him your pastors and churches.  Leave nothing at all in your life that has a name tag attached with your name on it.

Luke 12:47-49
47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

He’s Already Shown me some of what’s to come with it next year, and how to plan for it. The magnitude of this blessing…the whole earth praising The Lord for 24 hours? I’ve been at Their Feet so many times….it is an unutterable privilege – no words to describe it. Next year? Oh YES! I’d do it all again in a heartbeat. That’s what The Lord Wants from us…..pouring ourselves out in service to Him…day and night, going without, giving Him every last ounce of ourselves.

Now – rest – JOY – digesting it all, and planning for next year. Good night, world! I’ve been across the whole world today….and are my fingers tired!

BLESS YOU, LORD! BLESS YOU FATHER! BLESS YOU HOLY SPIRIT!

And, please? BLESS EVERYONE that participated in one way or another.

Waves of Praise on Christmas Days! 3pm in EVERY time zone!

ABSOLUTELY NO MONIES ARE BEING RAISED

THIS IS ALL WORD OF MOUTH AND SOCIAL NETWORKS

 WHAT

Would you kindly consider being a participant in a Move of God started 4 years ago?  I am looking for people to spread the word on their blogs, social networks and more.   We’re not counting numbers, nor taking email addresses.  We’re igniting a fire for The Lord!

There are no costs involved and no fund raising.  It is simply a “word of mouth” movement.

(I try to stay invisible behind the scenes.  It’s not about me.  It’s about HIM!)

It is a praise movement to send WAVES OF PRAISE to Heaven at 3pm in each and every time zone across the world for 24 hours! Every time the clock strikes 3:00 somewhere in the world, another WAVE of Praise goes up!  It is a movement The Lord Asked me to start in 2010, and is in its 4th year.

WHY

It will help turn hearts from presents and commercialism back to the real meaning of our very existence.  You see, “santa claus,” a fictitious and pagan figure has taken all the credit, while Jesus Has Not Gotten enough of it.  This is a way to put Christ back in Christmas.  It’s just the right thing to do.   It is to become a new and annual tradition.

Even though Christmas is a pagan holiday, even though He Wasn’t Born on Christmas,  Jesus Will Get the Glory!  One more way to take back that which satan has stolen!  (We should give Him Praise every day!)

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

  1. As you gather with friends and family, break out the musical instruments, and sing praises to The Lord.  Praise and worship anyway you like for as long as you like. Gather friends, families, churches.  (Please leave santa songs out.)
  2. Remember to thank Jesus for Coming to earth as our Savior.
  3. Some pastors in foreign countries are opening their churches for this!

 WHAT YOU CAN DO

I have connected with people in 80 countries so far, but there are 192 in the world.  And, there are a lot more people that I’ve not yet reached.  This is the time The Body of Christ should unite in His Name, just prior to His Second Coming.

  1. Please utilize the power of the internet and forward to your family, friends, contacts and colleagues, radio and tv stations and announcements, church bulletins and announcements, and social networks.
  2. For those in missions and ministries, please send the information to the churches, pastors and organizations you’ve had contact with in other countries.
  3. Please post on your blogs, and send emails to your contacts.  Even just a mention and a link to the website or blog will help!

MORE INFORMATION

This year, I have set up 2 blogs plus a Facebook page for people to post pictures and videos of their praise gatherings across the world if they choose.  There is certainly no requirement that they do.

Please forward it to pastors, friends, family, social networks, especially those from other countries.  Please spread the word and CATCH THE WAVE!

It will help turn hearts from presents and commercialism back to the real meaning of our very existence.  Even though Christmas is a pagan holiday, even though He Wasn’t Born on Christmas,  Jesus Will Get the Glory!  One more way to take back that which satan has stolen!  (We should give Him Praise every day!)

No monies are being raised.  We’re not counting numbers, nor taking email addresses.  We’re igniting a fire for The Lord!

HOW?  Praise and worship anyway you like for as long as you like. Gather friends, families, churches.   It’s just the right thing to do.

Please forward to your friends and colleagues, radio and tv, social networks in your country, and especially those in other countries. Afterwards, if you want, come back here and post pictures and videos from your gatherings across the world.

IT’S ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!

Thank you!
