Yom Kippur has also passed

Hi Everybody.

On Jerusalem time, Yom Kippur has also passed. We are disappointed, but not disheartened. We have little to report beyond the simple words given to me and Aaron. I got a single word, "Wait." Aaron got, "Be patient. This is not over."

We are not convicted of failure. We have been convicted and corrected in the past and we know very well what that's like. Like with Yom Teruah, which came and went, we anticipate more shaking and sifting as the Lord refines and prepares His people. He has not abandoned us, nor has He forgotten us.

So, what do we do now? We expect to do what is our customary practice - to wait on the Lord for direction and for His provision. Our hope is in Him. We cannot deny the abundance of miracles, and the mercy and the grace that has been steadfastly poured out upon the Lord's beloved. We wait, patiently, and we stay vigilant while we remain on watch.

I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait, And in His word do I hope. ~ Psalm 130:5


  1. Hello dears Bob and Aaron--
    Me again, Amanda (running fox). This chrome setting is always under my husband's ID. Sorry bout that.

    At least you have two ways to reach me if you ever need me! Ha ha!

    I can't say I feel any 'disappointment'. I think what I'm feeling is best categorized as Cautious Observation. It's the constant, heavy hearted feeling that things aren't Right, yet that nagging is always scolded back by my much stronger Faith that 'Things are as He allows.'.

    Sometimes I suppose as all humans do, I feel the Lord cannot Possibly be pleased with the avenues taken by many on His earth; yet I also feel there's an inspired correction that's taking place...ever so slowly it seems to the impatient observer, yet we simply Know the change is coming.

    In whatever form God decides, I do feel great change is coming . Certainly I am unwilling to accept that we have all fallen too far nor that He's forsaken us.

    As a worldly note, I had another two full days of complete rest , which came but not of my choosing. That's very odd but BECOMING more common. I slept Monday to 4 pm and Tuesday to 5pm. After having full night's sleep each time! What on Earth am I being prepared for that might require basically Unconsciousness? I mean I was OUT.

    Normally a fairly light sleeper, these sessions of 'exhaustive sleep' continue for an incredibly long period; void of dreams they seem and I awaken in the exact position in which I fell asleep. I can't even describe how abnormal this is.

    Today I stumbled upon Amos 8:11. This shook me, then calmed me as often the Word is known to do.

    My thoughts are with you both. All we know to do is Love the Lord, and await His guidance.
    Strength and Peace!
    -- Amanda

    1. Thanks for sharing that with me here, Amanda. The matter of fatigue/rest being a thing of special note is so interesting, and it is so with others of us, too. On the Lord's calendar, we are still in a season of holy days, with many focused on building their booths, temporary dwellings. I am now expecting to be writing or making video about this festival and I am hopeful that the Lord will bring forth more insight fit for the season!

      This verse Amos 8:11 usually makes me reflect on Bill Britton's work, "The Harness of the Lord."

      “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord God,
      “When I will send a famine on the land,
      Not a famine for bread or a thirst for water,
      But rather for hearing the words of the Lord.

  2. Dear Bob,

    That verse is simply 'supernaturally etched' on my mind these days and hours. It's behaving as when a song or a whistled tune keeps repeating. It's not at all an Unpleasant feeling.

    May the Heavenly Father stay Close to all of His People. We need Him.

    Blessings! To Aaron as well!
    Always, Amanda
