The Imposter Tour #26: Canton’s First Monday Market Days – Canton, Texas – 2014

cantonmarketdays cvb_market    They say Canton’s First Monday Trade Days is more than a flea market and their not kidding. They also say it is the almost post-apocalyptic world of garage sales and flea markets gone mad. If you put together every flea market we have ever been to this market would still be bigger! Canton’s First Monday Market Days started in 1850. You know the Flea Market we went to in Orlando is Florida’s Largest and Trader’s Village in San Antonio is America’s Best. What about Canton? Canton is known as the WORLD’s LARGEST! It is pretty big! mondayworld     The map for the market looks like a city! In fact, this Flea Market looks like it is larger than the Downtown City of Canton! We wouldn’t be surprised if this Flea Market is indeed what put Canton, Texas on the map, so-to-speak. Here is an aerial view of the market:

Looks like a city but it's not. This is the Canton First Monday Market Trade Days Flea Market!

We took a quick look around the place and didn’t even make a dent in looking at the entire market. Here is a compilation of what we did see…

Everywhere you turned there were people! But the crowds were not chaotic and loud and busy like the one in San Antonio that we went to.

We saw lots of good stuff and lots of junk there but every man’s junk is another man’s treasure.

While look at some Guitars Michael and the Guitar vendor had a little showdown. He called himself Johnny Trash as a joke to make fun of Johnny Cash. He was pretty good actually!

The Imposter Tour: The Holocaust Museum – Houston, Texas, 2014

holocaust We have never been to a Holocaust Museum before. Even though we have seen movies and documentaries about the Holocaust and the horrors that occurred during that time, the movies don’t always have all the details that actual history proves. 

groupholocaust

Before we went into the museum we knew it was horrific what happened in Germany in the camps. But we had no idea about some of the details we learned in there. Our personal private tour guide’s name was Theresa and she did a wonderful job describing everything and answering our questions. 

This is the villages that were affected during the Holocaust. Each tile that has a stone on it is from Houston residence who are survivors.

After visiting the Holocaust Museum we have a clearer perspective of the horror that occurred in the camps all across the region in and around Germany. We recommend anyone interested to visit a Holocaust Museum if you have the opportunity.

Anyone who believes that the Holocaust didn’t happen are crazy. Truly Hitler and his followers were wicked, twisted and evil. Let us never forget what happened so that we are not fooled if it occurs again.

Bless those who suffered and are still suffering to this day from the Holocaust.

 

 

 

The Imposter Tour: Dinner & Games with the Raum’s

houston

We met the Raum family at the after Shabbat Gathering and invited them over a couple times for fellowship. We plan to head to Galveston before we visit the Houston, Texas Holocaust Museum. The Raum family came over for a good bye visit and we had a blast! They are also Gluten Free so we had a delicious Gluten Free dinner. Pulled Bar-B-Q Chicken Sandwiches on Gluten free bread. Veggie Salad, Baked Potatoes, Gluten Free yellow cupcakes with purple icing and sprinkles on top.

We had an idea for the boys to do a jump shot. They tried… it looks kinda funny actually. Daniel look like he is floating, Andrew Raum is just a happy boy and Michael looks like he was shot and it in the action of falling backwards.

Felicia and Analisa Raum were enjoying the nice evening breeze in the grass by the lake just before the sun was setting.

We had a lot of fun with the Raum’s, the adults and children alike. We invited Analisa to travel on the road with us and her parents agreed to the idea. She’s like part of the family and look forward to spending the next few weeks with her.

   We told our the Brethren in Houston that we were going to be there and they decided to show up as well. Matthew Gonzalez, his wife Edith and mother Vivian came and they brought Scott Clayton too. You remember those shirts we have, the Imposter Tour ones? Well, all the men of the group each wore one. Brother Danny, Michael, Daniel, Matthew and Scott. Matthew, Scott and Daniel grabbed some DVDs and set out to walk around the market to give them away too! Meanwhile, back at our booth Vivian was translating for the Spanish speaking people passing by. It was awesome!

Sister Felicia and Sister Linda came out for a little while too. It was chilly so they went back inside after about an hour.

IMG_9057bbb  Brother Danny asked this guy if he wanted a free DVD. “I don’t believe in the Bible!” He said.

“Well these DVDs just aren’t for Bible believers.” Danny replied. The man snapped, “no thanks” and stormed away. Just as he was walking off our spot Sister Felicia saw that he had the book ‘Fahrenheit 451’ and eagerly said “Oh, that’s a good book you got there!” Then the man just began attacking the Bible left and right and repeated asked Felicia if she knew what happened in 76 AD. He then went on to ask who wrote the Bible, saying the entire Bible was destroyed in 76AD and man had to re-write it. A bunch of Bologna indeed!

The Imposter Tour: After Shabbat Fellowship – Houston, Texas – 2014

houston

While we were fellowshipping at the gathering after Shabbat, it was brought up that Sister Felicia was hit by a truck May 17th, 2011. Everyone wanted hear about it. So Brother Danny, Sister Linda and Felicia went to front of the room and Danny & Linda told the experience of the Miracle Maiden.

0001 IMG_9007bbb

Even though it was a terrifying experience of Sister Felicia being hit by a truck, it is a blessing that she was able to sit there while her Mom and Dad told the story of the miracle Yahuwah has done for her. Everyone who hears this story are so blessed and many are brought to tears. We praise Yahuwah for blessing her with life.

After another late night of fellowship we exchanged email addresses and went home. We look forward to fellowshipping with this group again soon. Right now, we have plans to leave Houston and head down to Galveston, Texas and then Corpus Christi. Have a blessed week everyone!

The Imposter Tour: Shabbat Fellowship- Houston, Texas

houstonNot only is Houston, Texas the third largest city in the United States, but it is also a minefield for believers. We quietly arrived in north Houston not expecting to find many believers for fellowship, was here for a week and the motor in our car blew up. Just hours after the car blew up Brother Danny was having symptoms of a heart attack. We had no car to take him to the hospital so we had to call an ambulance to take him to the Emergency Room. We want to thank everyone who prayed for Brother Danny and the F.O.Y. Ministry during this time. Thankfully, Brother Danny was not having a heart attack. The doctors diagnosed him with Peptic Stomach Ulcers. He must now change his diet to help his ulcers heal. Since we sent out the prayer request for Danny to everyone in our mailing list, a few responded and let us know they were in the Houston area. We invited them to come over for Shabbat.

Matthew Gonzalez brought his Wife Edith and Mother Vivian. Mark Schmit and Scott Clayton came too.

Meanwhile, after outside fellowship Danny and Linda went to go pick up Scott from the bus stop. Michael and Mark were discussion the TzitTzit and how we tie them. This lead into a TzitTzit tying how-to.

We had an awesome time fellowshipping with everyone. We tried to contact two other people in Houston but they never responded. So sad we couldn’t enjoy your company too.

Everyone enjoyed the Gluten Free (GF) Bread, GF Brownies, GF Shortbread Cookies, Grilled Chicken, Baked Potatoes, Fruit & Veggies, etc. We had fellowship and Scripture Discussion up til 3am. It was so much fun!

Matthew Gonzalez told us about the gathering that was to be held after Shabbat at the Raum’s household. We excepted the invitation. See you then!

The Bargain City Bazaar – Dallas, Texas – 2014

We had fun here at the Bargain City Bazaar. Many DVDs were given away, praise Yahuwah. It is amazing how interested people are when they see our booth. Yahuwah’s truths are being spread not only through those who find our website but also to those who simply come to a flea market to shop for materialistic items. Here are some pictures…

Imposter Tour: Leaving San Antonio, Texas

 leaving

As we pulled out of San Antonio TX, we will sadly miss our old friends that we have been close to for about nine years. We had a wonderful time! We will also miss our new friends. We love you all.

In the hustle in bustle of everyday life, saving time by cutting corners whenever possible can be extremely beneficial. So when we get dirty laundry, sometimes going to the local laundry mat can save hours. I’ve seen it done, you can take an entire day of washing clothes at home, down to about two hours at the laundry mat. Isn’t that great?

2013523-harbord-mainNot only can washing your clothes at the laundry mat save time and be fun, but it is also a great place to meet new people. That is exactly what happened to us at a small San Antonio laundry mat. At first we were just having a small conversation with Eddy and his wife. He went on to tell us how this was his first time ever being at that laundry mat because it was in a bad part of town. Before to long the subject of our faith was brought up. By the time the laundry was done, Eddy and his wife were following us back to the campground we were staying at. We had such a wonderful time talking that night that we must have talked until about one in the morning. He took some of our movies, we prayed together and then we had to say our goodbyes. During our five weeks in San Antonio we kept in contact with Eddy. He wanted us to share his testimony of what Yahuwah had done for him with all you readers.

 “I give thanks to Yahuwah and Yahushua and the Spirit because there was one time in my life where I was going through a tough time. I was fighting to break off of climax, I felt I was going to die and I felt like I betrayed Jesus, because back then I used to live by the name of Jesus. At this time I did not know His Name, till one night I met Danny and his wife Linda. They told me He still loved me. He could still use my life no matter what I did wrong. They showed me the Father’s love. They also presented to me the true Names of the Father and Son. They told me the Father’s name is Yahuwah and the Son’s name, who died for me on the stake is Yahushua. I believed and yes I began to study. In my studying, the Set Apart Spirit showed me confirmation that this is the Truth. I trusted in the Spirit of Yahuwah and Yahushua and I believed. Ever since that night my life has never been the same. Yahushua healed me with His precious blood by His great power. I was no longer sick from climax, my stomach did not hurt anymore. I was no longer vomiting.  When He first healed me, He told me to live by His Name, His True Name. He told me not to forget about His Father Yahuwah. Since then, came great encounters with Him in my room, I’ve seen Him come and pray for me and my wife. I’ve even had great visions of what will come to past concerning great wars in our country. He’s revealed great things that I never really understood in His word.  He told me I am His messenger sent from Heaven.  He told me that He wants me to Spread His true Name and the Father’s Name.  He went on to tell me not many will stand up for their names. I told Him I will Yahuwah, Yahushua.  He told me to Spread His Name my Son. The people must know, and they will know because I will go forth in proclaiming His Name.  Since I have come into the truth, He has blessed me with a job. We had no furniture, no table to eat with our children, we had nothing but a car for my wife to get to work and so our children can get to school.  Yahushua has provided all these things for us and we have no needs.  I have peace in my heart, love, joy, Freedom from Drugs, from hate, suicide, depression, now because of His true Name!  Remember there is power in His name, there is Freedom, Peace, Love, Joy, Happiness all is found in His Name Yahushua. There’s power in the Father’s name Yahuwah also.  How do I know, because I experienced it the Day I began to live by their true Names.  Now the question is will you believe? Will you ever experience what I have, what my wife has, and what my children has? It’s up to you to believe, to trust and then you will see that all I’ve said is truth.”

Battery was dead on our good camera so we had to use a different one.


HalleluYah!
That first night when we met, I still remember how Edward was constantly having to run to the bathroom. Before we left we prayed blessings upon Edward. and We prayed deliverance for him and his family also. We thank and praise Yahuwah for hearing our prayers. I speak a truth, there is indeed freedom from all forms of bondage in those who believe in Yahushua! Do not believe any of Satan’s lies. No matter how dark or bleak your life might be at this very moment Yahuwah, the Mighty One of Yisrael, can turn your life around. Seek Him and cry out to HIM…He loves you!

Do you see beloved ones how this works? Sow the seeds where ever and whenever you are able. You never know when you will be used to help call another out! Eddy has assured us that even though we are leaving this area what we started here, he will continue this work in the big city of San Antonio…HalleluYah! If you or someone you know suffers with an addiction and would like to talk to Edward just email us and we will connect you with him.

For I am thus reminded: For everyone who calls on the Name of YAHUWAH shall be saved.How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without one proclaiming? And how shall they proclaim if they are not sent? As it has been written, How pleasant are the feet of those who bring the Good News of peace, who bring the Good News of the good!(Romans 10:13-15)

Are you a Temple Builder? If not I say, “Rise up ol’e children of Yisrael, now is the time to proclaim.”  Spread the Good News (The Besorah) now while it is still daylight as darkness is coming. Make full use of your ministry as outlined 2 Timothy 4:5. You do not need any special doctorate degree to be a Temple Builder. Just having the Ruach Ha Qodesh qualifies you to go forth and further the coming Kingdom! Do not believe those lies that you cannot do this…you can be a Temple Builder!

Imposter Tour #20: Flea Mart- San Antonio

sanantionio1

Flea Mart – San Antionio – Feb 2014

What a mad house! After waiting 20 minutes in traffic at the entrance to buy a parking spot, you better have even more fun finding a place to park! Once you got your car parked, finished dodging the driving vehicles coming and going in the parking lot, you have a whole other obstacle ahead of you! The shopping experience. While this extremely busy flea market was good for The Imposter Tour, it wasn’t a very good shopping experience when trying to make your way through from one shop to the other. It was loud and traffic jam after traffic jam. This flea market is so big, I think they have a problem with having a variety of shops. There must have been a Catholic relic and First Communion outfitter shop down every row. You sure can tell what’s popular in this part of Texas. Catholicism is on the rise!

As we mentioned before, the busy crowds were very good for The Imposter Tour and praise Yahuwah, He brought the ones He is calling into His Truth to our table to receive the free DVD(s) of their choice.

Here are some pictures:

And the crowds are rolling in!

And we’re ready for them all! Since we are a Ministry and wasn’t selling anything they gave us a special spot in the front of the flea market near the concession area. This was beneficial because it was near the main entrance and everyone saw us sitting there in the eating area. Yahuwah has a purpose for everything. Normally, we pay for a booth, but we even got to stay in this spot at no charge!

We had a great time here at the Flea-Mart.

San Antonio, are we done with you yet? Nope, we have more flea markets in this city. Stay tuned cause there is more to come.

Where are we going next? We are going to be here in Texas until mid March 2014. Want us to come see you for fellowship, to visit or show our movies in your congregation, or if you know of a popular flea market in your area?

Imposter Tour #19: The Wedding Feast

pitstop

With all the excitement of meeting and seeing new faces on our tour from state to state, the long road can become extremely lonely. Therefore, we here at the FOY ministry greatly enjoy a pit-stop every now and then. Our recent pit-stop would have us travel nearlykeylargotoolney 1,600 miles from Key Largo, Florida to Olney, Texas for a very special wedding. Leaving Key Largo meant we had to embrace the bitter cold arctic blast that the majority of states had been experiencing for weeks. As difficult as it was to trade in our flip flop’s, sun hats and lemonade sipping drinks for a wardrobe of ear muffs, gloves and winter coats, the tradeoff would be well worth it. Nothing compares to visiting old friends and making new ones.

All weddings are emotional in one way or another. But when Torah believing Messianic’s desire to wed and have their parent’s blessings, the entire ceremony is awesome. What makes our weddings so different, you ask?

Most of the customs surrounding the Messianic wedding has deep rooted spiritual meaning. The entire ceremony is quite fascinating actually. Here let me explain. Shot gun weddings do not exist within the Body of Mashiach neither does ‘justice of the peace’ ones. According to our tradition, marriage is viewed as a contract declared by Yahuwah between the man and woman. The goal is to create a lifelong relationship with marriage-certificate-blankYahuwah as the center. This is different compared to those that are living within the Babylon system. The majority of them have allowed the ‘state’ to be their center. Once the state has been made a partner, by the signing of a marriage license, they then have legal rights to anything that the partnership produces; such as children.  Most of these marriages also do not acknowledge the importance of the parent’s blessings. Whereas, within our tradition, that is the first step in the marriage ceremony.

When a man is interested in a woman, he first prays and may even fast to see if she is his helpmate. After receiving confirmation he then goes to the young woman’s Father to ask for her hand in marriage.  If there is no blessing from the Father then there is no Betrothal and the story ends. However, in the event her Father agrees… the journey begins.

The next step is the acceptance, if the woman wants to be his bride or not. After all, she will be spending the rest of her life with him. According to tradition, in front of witnesses, the man pours some wine or grape juice into a cup. wineHe then patiently waits to see if she will drink from it. If she accepted the marriage proposal she would drink from the cup. Their betrothed would now begin. Some betrothals can last as long as a year. The betrothal is binding and can only be broken through written divorce. The only way the betrothal could be broken by divorce is if the bride is found not a virgin.

The happy Bridegroom would then give her some object of value such as a ring, necklace or bracelet along with a Ketubah (marriage contract/covenant) listing promises to the Bride from the Bridegroom.

homeHe would then leave to go prepare a suitable place for them to live. He tells her, “I go and prepare a place for you and when I am ready I will return for you”. During his departure the Bride begins to get matters ready.  The custom was that the Bridegroom could not return to his beloved until after he had his Father’s approval of the place he had prepared for her. In the event the Bridegroom was asked about when the wedding would be, he would declare, “only my Father knows!’

Hmmmm….are you beginning to see the importance of the wedding ceremony? I sure hope so. Let’s continue:

The wedding could not take place until after the Bridegroom’s Father declared, ‘The wedding chamber is now ready! Go forth and get your Bride!”

Since the Bride never knew which day or hour her Bridegroom would come get her, she would have to keep herself ready at all times. She kept a lamp lit while the bridesmaids kept oil on hand. Patiently, they would wait to hear for the sound of the Shofar. At the blast of the Shofar they knew the Bridegroom is coming to her!

After the wedding party arrives, the Bride and Groom goes into the wedding chamber. The best man or friend would wait outside to hear that the marriage had indeed been consummated. The stained blood bed sheets bore witness that this was her first sexual intercourse. This proved of her purity. The entire marriage feast lasted seven days with a marriage supper full of guests.

spiritualglasses
Let us now put on our spiritual-glasses to see the deeper richer meaning found within the Marriage Ceremony.

 

During the Tanak (Old Testament) Yahuwah made a marriage covenant with His people (YeshaYahu/Isaiah 54:5-6). The Torah is the written marriage contract (Shemoth/Exodus 20:3) in other words our marriage vows. This contract was a blood covenant (Wayyiqra/Leviticus 17:11) with the Bride price consisting of the Passover Lamb (Shemoth/Exodus 12:13-14). The drinking of the cup of wine during the Passover meal was the sign of the woman (Bride/Yisrael) accepting the proposal and was publically announced in the wilderness (Shemoth/Exodus 19:7-8). The weekly Seventh Day Sabbath was the wedding chamber of how the children of Yisrael would spend time with their Yahuwah (Shemoth/Exodus 31:16; Wayyiqra/Leviticus 19:30; 23:3).

Sadly, the children of Yisrael broke the marriage vows (Torah) and thus were found whoring by serving false deities. Therefore, the marriage ended in a writ of divorcement (YirmeYahu/Jeremiah 3:8) as Yahuwah had to put her away for a time (Yehezqel/Ezekiel 16:60-63; YirmeYahu/Jeremiah 31:31-34). Yet He loved her so much that where there seemed to be no way… He made the way:

“And I shall take you as a bride unto Me forever, and take you as a bride unto Me in righteousness, and in right-ruling, and kindness and compassion. “And I shall take you as a bride unto Me in trustworthiness, and you shall know YAHUWAH. (Hosea 2:19-20)

Let us now connect these customs to Yahuwah’s magnificent plan for humanity as outlined within the marriage ceremony.  Whenever a Yisra’elite man (Yahushua the Messiah) wanted to marry (the congregation), he would go to the maiden’s house with a ‘bride price (Yahushua gave his life for the Bride and thus was the Passover Lamb).

“On the next day Yoḥanan saw Yahushua coming toward him, and said, “See, the Lamb of Elohim who takes away the sin of the world!” Yohanan/John 1:29

He was declaring that Yahushua is the bride’s price. Yahuwah approved and accepted the ‘bride price’ as “He was pleased to crush Him“. (YeshaYahu/Isaiah 53:10).

If the bride price was accepted, a glass of wine would be poured (MattithYahu/Matthew 26:26-29). If the maiden drank, then they would be betrothed. The only way the betrothal could be broken was by divorce/ if the bride was found to be not a virgin (MattithYahu 1:18-19).Then the Bridegroom (Yahushua) would go off to build a place (the Millennium, New Jerusalem as outlined in Revelation 21) for His bride (Believers). Now let us consider the following verse:

“In My Father’s house are many staying places. And if not, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you” And if I go and prepare a place for you, I shall come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, you might be too. “And where I go you know, and the way you know.” Yohannan (John) 14:2-4

Praise be to Yahuwah! Amazing! At that time, His taught ones did not understand what He was saying:

“T’oma/Thomas said to Him, “Master, we do not know where You are going, and how are we able to know the way?” Yohannan (John) 14:5

The Messiah was saying, that He was going to prepare a place for us! When the Father (Yahuwah) decides the marriage chamber (New Jerusalem) is indeed ready (Mark 13:32) as it was custom for the groom’s father to do, the Bridegroom (Yahushua) will come get the Bride (us Believers). The Bride (Believers) must prepare themselves to receive our Bridegroom, Yahushua (Revelation 19:7-8) as the parable of the ten virgins explains (MattithYahu/Matthew 25). This is why no man knows the day or the hour, like a thief in the night!

Are you waiting for the Bridegroom, Yahushua to come get you? Fill up the oil lamps! I say, let the Bride prepare herself, for when the hour does indeed come, she shall be ready!

7trumpetsAt the seventh trump our Bridegroom, Yahushua will come get us Believers and then the doors shall be shut and the marriage feast of the Lamb will begin (Revelation 19:19). All those who have been faithful by keeping the marriage vows, (Ten Commandments) believers (the Bride) to the Bridegroom (Yahushua, Ha Mashiach) will enter into the wedding feast!

Clearly, these traditions or customs are just important today as they were generations ago. We are now the Bride of Messiah and can learn so much from the deeper meaning of these practices.

Considering all this, the FOY ministry was very happy to rejoice along with being witnesses in our dear friend’s wedding.

We were blessed with safe travels to go to the wedding of Jasey Davis and Carson Hughes. It was a beautiful wedding. We met lots of new friends, had great fellowship and a lot of fun. We also got to share our Ministry and the story of our Miracle Maiden, Felicia with our new friends. Here are some pictures of the wedding.
