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.

Could paganism be part of your worship without you even realizing it? Paganism has infiltrated our conversations, our language and our worship. Does it matter to Yehovah? If we know something we're involved in has pagan roots, isn't it OK as long as we "know in our hearts" that we're really worshiping the true God? What about Christmas? If we "keep Christ in Christmas", doesn't that make it OK? Read what Yehovah says. Find out.

There's a movement to "put Christ back into Christmas". Was Jesus ever in Christmas in the first place? Someone was born on December 25th, but was it Christ? Why would two gospels- Mark and John - totally omit Christ's birth? What do Christmas trees, Yule logs and mistletoe have to do with Jesus? Are traditional beliefs about the "manger scene" even correct? What was the meaning of the three gifts? You'll never think the same way about Jesus' birth - or of Christmas -after this message.
