Nitzavim 2021 || Brittney Scott

Nitzavim/”Standing”, Deuteronomy 29:10-30:20, is always read directly before Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah)!  It seems then that perhaps there’s a clue or some insight that can be gleaned regarding how we are to enter the Fall Festivals and appointed times!  The Fall Festivals take place during the 7th month on the Hebrew …

Heritage of Jacob – Israel || Pastor David Mathews

Gen. 12: 1-3.
