We’ve now entered a very exciting time of the year when it comes to keeping in step and rhythm with the Biblical calendar. It’s called the Fall Festivals. Rosh Hashanah (Heb. Head of the Year) has just past. It commemorates God’s creation of man and woman in the Garden of Eden and their awareness of their roles in His Kingdom. It focuses on God’s desire to become completely at one with all of His creation and how, with the precious sacrifice of the Passover Lamb, Jesus Christ, He can now bring us back to the Garden with a new heart, spirit, soul, and mind.
Every Rosh Hashanah or Feast of Trumpets begins with the blowing of the shofar, which reminds us of the soon-coming return of our King and Messiah and the establishment of His Kingdom here on earth. God calls these Fall Festivals His moedim or appointed times. They are like wedding rehearsals that prepare us for the Great Wedding soon to come!

Back in September 2014, Jack Ma, founder, and CEO of Alibaba Holding Company spoke on China’s internet Taobao regarding his thoughts on Christianity and America’s founding. He highlighted the strength of America as a young nation and her commanding power as a world leader today, attributing these qualities to her Christian heritage, and not her legal system, a position widely held by a majority of Chinese intellectuals.

China is searching for such a belief system and it behooves the nation to study how America evolved from her Christian foundation…
Blessing Your Spirit
Ever feel like a wilted flower that needs the refreshment that comes from just a few drops of morning dew? God's Word says that King David craved the Lord's presence like a parched deer pants for water (Psalms 42:1).
East Gates has just produced a CD, Blessing Your Spirit. It's composed of 21 blessings (in Mandarin Chinese) taken from Sylvia Gunter and Arthur Burke's popular book, Blessing Your Spirit.
This project came about through the inspiration of Lotus Buds International. They work to encourage, support and educate families in China to adopt their own orphans. Having worked in the country for a number of years, they observed how nannies and caregivers in orphanages needed spiritual food to nourish their soul. After reading Blessing Your Spirit, they thought it would be a good idea for a CD to be produced with that very idea in mind. They approached East Gates on the project.
Some of the blessings cover topics such as: Knowing Your Purpose, Freedom from the Fear of Man, Sound of Heaven, Kingdom of Peace, Seeing God's Fingerprints and more...
