Foundational Principles of “Feasts Of The Lord.Net”
“May the words of our mouth and the meditation of our
hearts be acceptable to You O Lord, our God and our Redeemer". Because faith comes
by hearing, and hearing comes from the word of God, and His Word does not return void… then it is the objective of
this study to not "ever increase in knowledge", and yet fail to come to the knowledge of the Truth - but rather
to be restored in the spirit of our minds, to set our spirit free that we may worship Thee, in order that we might apply our
hearts unto wisdom; a wisdom that is first pure than peaceable, guiding us on how to cast down every evil imagination that
exalts itself against God, and to bring every thought into obedience to Your will - that we as a body of individual believers
might be built upon the foundation of the apostles, Jesus the Messiah; the Chief Cornerstone, so that as
a building tightly framed together, we might become the holy habitation of God in the Spirit – with
the Word of God becoming a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.” Glory in His Holy Name. Psalm 19:14
Rom. 10:17, Isa. 55:11, 2 Tim. 3:7, James 3:17, 2 Cor. 10:5, Eph. 2:20-22, Psm. 119:105.
Please observe, that just as all the words of this prayer are scripture, it is God’s word that
does not return void Isa. 55:11, NOT our words! It is my desire to let God’s words
do the talking during this study. My (your) work is to point out the related scriptures for your contemplation
and growth in knowledge of God’ redemptive plan for us. By the grace of God loving preparation time
has been expended to develop these study files for your use, and to be a blessing to others. My prayer
is that they support your work, in spirit and in truth to the glory of the Lord Jesus, the Alpha and Omega.
