Exploring our Heavenly Father’s Treasure House – update 4 September 2011

Exploring our Heavenly Father’s Treasure House – Today is the 4th day of the 6th Biblical month

“This is what the יהוה says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the יהוה your אלהים, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.”        Isaiah 48:17 NIV

Today is the 4th day of the 6th Biblical month and unlike previous years updates on the progress of my Journey of Faith I decided (rather radically I think) not to delete my previous years notes.  Instead I will add to them.

Interestingly this particular phase of my Journey began here in 2009 (wow that seems a long time ago) and how little did I know just how true that dream was to become and how much further I was going to be pushed…. (can I really walk on the waves?) Still, joking aside traditionally the 6th Month (aka Elul) is time of preparation for the forthcoming festivals in the 7th Month.

This past year I have found myself researching circumcision (they changed WHAT!), the evidence for the Exodus (oh – there is definitely is some), the ‘Gentile’ divide (false teaching, more false teachings and just plain lies).  More worryingly for me was the exploration into ‘WHO EXACTLY IS THIS PERSON I WORSHIP’  (mega scary stuff), What IS His Name/Nature/Origins.  It didn’t get any better as I trawled my way through rafts of blurb on the origins of the stories in the bible.

I haven’t written any of this down anywhere – but feel I am being pushed into making a record of my findings.  So I guess I ought to do that – but as to whether they get published – probably, almost certainly not.  But I can see the sense of recording my notes in some sort of order so that in later years I can return and discover whether they are indeed the truth or not.

But then truth is a very personal concept is it not?  So where then will the journey take me this coming year – I have some topics already bubbling away: historical Jesus and the reality? and one that has been weighing on my mind for quite some years – what appellation to give our Heavenly Father on this site?

But that important thing for you, dear reader, is to know that this blog is not a ‘teaching blog’ nor do I have a ‘ministry’ but it is merely a record of my life as I explore this Treasure House given to us by our Heavenly Father.
