Welcome to Light on the Rock

We’ve marveled at our Savior through the Passover season and now count the days to Pentecost – which means “count 50”. Yes, the early believers kept the Feasts of Yah (Leviticus 23) and the new covenant “ekklesia” actually started on Pentecost, one of those divine appointments and received the gift of the Holy Spirit. The word for “Feast” in Hebrew (moed) actually means “appointed time” or appointment. We think of “feasts” as a time of plenty of food and drink – and that’s part of the meaning but the usual word used for that is “chag” (silent c) – meaning a feast day as we think of the word.

In the coming weeks we’ll focus on the first of the divine appointments – the holy weekly sabbath, instituted by God himself resting on the 7th day of the week (Genesis 2:1-3). We’ll be covering other topics as well. Please also look at the blogs for interesting and educative topics. I welcome your comments and feedback. May our loving Father bless you all. Thank you for coming to this free site. Please let others know about this website if it is blessing you.

Do you really want to be a “Christian”?

by Philip Shields

With everything good and bad that can be said about organized Christianity – do you want to be called a “Christian”? Several have said they prefer other labels so that they’re not lumped in with Christians who don’t keep the sabbath or who keep pagan holidays, etc., not to mention the sometimes violent and sordid historical record of traditional Christianity. So in this teaching we examine both sides of this discussion. What did the early followers of Christ call themselves? What did Paul and Peter have to say about being called a “Christian”? And what IS a true Christian or true follower of Christ? Wherever you are on this subject, I hope you will hear and study this vital message. It WILL make you think. I’d love your feedback.
