Sing to ADONAI a new song!
Sing to ADONAI all the earth.
--Psalm 96:1 TLV
The day before Passover is full of the excitement of knowing that we are about to enter into into a set apart time. Today almost had the quality of a technicolor movie as we scurried to give away the last chametz in the foreground of the fully blooming cherry trees!
|My daughter offered to take a bag of still good `chametz` to her workplace and keep it out of our house during Passover.|
|Stopping to enjoy the cherry blossoms|
No one would ever know, inside the bag is fulled with...chametz!!
|Today was such a splendid day, both the day of the full blossoms and the day before Passover, turtles too were enjoying a sumptuous sunny spot|
|Between the blossoms and having finished the chametz clearing, we were getting a little giddy.|
she rode off into the blossoms with the bag of chametz!
Scene 2, Take 1
The amazing thing is, the full blossoms of Cherry Blossoms and `Hana-mi` (Cherry Blossoms season) corresponded this year exactly with the beginning of Passover.
I am so excited for when these come fully together. When people of Japan will know Yeshua, and that this Cherry Blossoms season will become a time when people will be celebrating new life in Him, and a Messianic re-birth in Japan. The scenes then will be people eating matzah, praising ADONAI, and singing worship songs under the pink canopy, tasting the Bread of Life and drinking from the cup of Redemption!! A whole nation celebrating the Passover under the cherry blossoms!!
Declare His glory among the nations,
His marvelous deeds among all peoples.
As the sliding doors slide on into the Passover Holiday, wishing you Blessings and Shalom!
Chag Sameach from Japan! (Happy Holiday)
