The Gospel Of The Moon

The Gospel Of The Moon…

The full moon marked key dates in the ancient Hebrew calendar. It was the fullness of the month that was considered the best time for a betrothal.

So in the Hebrew marriage was often at the time of the full moon that the groom would propose and covenant with the bride. There, under the full moon, he pledged his life to the bride and the bride did likewise.

There, they shared in the cup of the covenant to seal the betrothal. Passover falls on the 14th and 15th of Nisan – the night of the full moon.

Jesus gave us the cup of the covenant that same night. Then He gave His life on the cross. That was His pledge to us.

For Jesus is the Bridegroom. And so He has given His pledge to you, the pledge even beyond marriage. Your response, in turn, must be, to pledge yourself, your love, and your all to Him.

Because the covenant is given, and so it must be sealed under the full moon. He has given His covenant and pledge to your life. Go and do likewise.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1

Today, pledge your life to your Beloved and give Him your all.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
