Spring 2019 Update


Spring 2019 Update

I hope you are all keeping well and looking forward to the upcoming Festivals as much as I am. For me, this will be my 47th Feast of Tabernacles but I never tire of keeping the Feast and rehearsing the amazing meaning each Holy Day pictures in God’s plan of salvation.

However, we also need to keep in mind that this is typically a time of the year when Satan and his demons seem to get stirred up more than usual. God’s people do and will face various trials, whether it be health, financial or family, but the one thing we all can have is the confidence of God’s promises to us. Hebrews 13:5-6 is particularly encouraging when we fall into various trials. The Apostle Paul writes, “I will never leave you nor forsake you. So we may boldly say: The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Whatever trials you might be facing at this time, know that God will never give us more than we can manage (I Corinthians 10:13) and will make a way of escape to those who trust Him.

On the flipside however, we must do our part too. As we prepare for the Festivals, make sure we’re doing all we can to stay grounded and focused on the big picture. It’s vitally important that we don’t neglect our relationship with God through prayer and Bible study. Taking time to meditate on His Word is valuable for keeping us zeroed in on God and maintaining the right perspective.

This year we have many brethren traveling internationally to various Feast sites around the world. Please keep each other in your prayers for both a safe and inspiring Festival season. We also have a number of travelling ministry and I wanted to share with you where they will be:

Let’s not get caught up with the cares of this world but stay busy, doing our part in God’s Work and preparing for Christ’s return when the final trumpet sounds.

Have a wonderful Holy Day season.

Yours Faithfully,
Robert Tyler (Australasian Regional Director)
