To end the Festival Season, we will be hosting our PRAISE event. The Eighth Day is to signify the end of the Spring Harvest & the conclusion of the Spring Feasts, where no regular work is to be done but instead a time to come together, remember, be thankful & praise God for all that He has done. So on Sunday the 16th of October, we will be coming together at Genesis Church (148 Eastlake St, Carrara) at 6:00pm for a service of food & worship & also the very special day of the Torah resetting back to Genesis. Throughout history, this has been a day that signifies the reset of the Torah, the resetting of one’s life to be focused on God, a time of new beginnings and this festival will have a very significant place for each of us in the age to come.
Sunday evening (16th October) will be the final event for Kingdom Season, and this one is quite possibly the merriest of them all. Did you know that the scripture in Psalm 118, that says, “This is the day the the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it” is speculated, by the Rabbis, to be an inference to the eighth day celebration. This celebration is in anticipation of the New Heavens and New Earth. We simply MUST rejoice.
