While WLC continues to uphold the observance of the Seventh-Day Sabbath, which is at the heart of Yahuwah's moral law, the 10 Commandments, we no longer believe that the annual feast days are binding upon believers today. Still, though, we humbly encourage all to set time aside to commemorate the yearly feasts with solemnity and joy, and to learn from Yahuwah’s instructions concerning their observance under the Old Covenant. Doing so will surely be a blessing to you and your home, as you study the wonderful types and shadows that point to the exaltation of Messiah Yahushua as the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the conquering lion of the tribe of Judah, and the Lamb of Yahuwah that takes away the sins of the world.

Yahushua was not just our Redeemer. He was also our example of how to live. He was the world’s greatest teacher, but before teaching the people the truths of salvation, He first met the physical needs of the people. He healed their diseases, gave sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, relief to the demon possessed, and courage to the faint of heart. When needed, He even provided food for them! Once their hearts were warmed with gratitude, the people were more open to hearing the words of divine truth He wanted to share.

In following His example, it is perfectly acceptable for believers to use their offerings in alleviating suffering around them. Scripture is full of admonishment to show mercy and kindness to those in need.

Thus says Yahuwah of hosts: Execute true justice, show mercy and compassion everyone to his brother. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. (See Zechariah 7:9, 10.)

If you know an elderly man who does not have enough to eat, a gift of food to help him in his distress, is an offering of love Yahuwah delights to receive. It was the custom of devout Israelites to take food to beggars on the sixth day of the week so that their wants could be met and they would not have to beg over the holy hours of the Sabbath.

If there is a single mother struggling to support her children, gifts of winter coats and boots that meet a specific need are an acceptable offering to Yahuwah, for when the distress of His earthly children is comforted, His own suffering with them is comforted.

Yahuwah’s heart of love is always touched whenever there is suffering. His attention is focused on those in need, and anyone who works to alleviate that need, works with Yahuwah and the gifts thus given, are truly offerings given to Him.

He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto Yahuwah; and that which he hath given will He pay him again. (See Proverbs 19:17.)

A gift is different than a loan. A gift is given without any expectation of return. A loan, on the other hand, is merely lent for a specified period of time with the expectation that it will be returned to the owner at a later date. It is impossible to out-give Yahuwah. He is the source of all generous giving. Offerings given to the poor and needy are considered by Yahuwah to be a loan. He will make sure that the giver is never left in want, but will more than restore anything given to help another. Yahuwah even keeps an accounting of food and hospitality that is given to bless His saints, and will make sure the giver receives a full reward. “He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.” (Proverbs 22:9, KJV)
