Pastor's Bio

Mark Biltz, founder of El Shaddai Ministries in Washington State is a well-known and popular commentator on the Feasts of the Lord and has produced a series of Dvd’s on the Feasts that have gone around the world. His research and theories have earned him guest appearances on both radio and television as well the cover of magazines. He teaches how the Messianic prophecies that Jesus fulfilled 2,000 years ago when He came the first time happened to the very day. He then explains how the second coming events will also happen to the very day of the Fall Feasts. Yeshua died for our sins on Passover, was buried on the Feast of Unleavened Bread, resurrected from death on First Fruits, and then sent the Holy Spirit to indwell believers on the Jewish Feast of Pentecost (Shavuot). If He fulfilled the spring Feasts to the day of His first coming He will fulfill the Fall Feasts to the day of His second coming. 

He has also revealed a link between charts of solar and lunar eclipses from NASA’s website with Israel’s history, the Biblical feast days, and signs in the heavens drawing clear similarities between them, lining up through history.   He’s spoken at congregations & conferences in Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, and Canada as well in the U.S. in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, New Mexico, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Florida. He has been interviewed by FOX television, appeared on the Sid Roth television broadcast as well as on Prophecy in the News. He’s been interviewed by many radio stations across the United States and Canada. The website,  receives millions of hits from over 40 nations around the world every year. He has 40,000 regular visitors every month downloading messages from the website. 

Mark was born in 1956 in Wichita, Kansas and raised as a Roman Catholic. In 1975 at 19 years of age he was attending Kansas Newman College in Wichita when a childhood friend gave me a better understanding of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He left the Roman Catholic Church and joined a youth organization called the Agape Force. His teachers included Leonard Ravenhill, David Wilkerson, and Winkie Pratney. He then went back to Kansas where he went to a local bible college. The Pastor of the church moved to Washington State and asked him to move out there in 1987 and be his associate. Mark was also the administrator/teacher for South King County Bible College.  Mark felt a real need to refocus on Hebrew Roots and to get back to an original understanding of the context and culture to have a correct understanding of the Bible. His wife, Vicki, bought him a book by a Jewish Rabbi named Moshe Braun called The Jewish Holy Days - Their Spiritual Significance. He saw such depth to the material and realized that Christians were missing so much by seeing themselves as cut off from the Jewish mindset and culture. He became a passionate student of literature written from a Jewish mindset and was humbled by the grace, wisdom and insight that poured forth from our Jewish brethren. Mark realized the Jewish people loved the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and had been studying and mining the Bible for millennia looking for nuggets.  So he started El Shaddai Ministries in 2001 to educate Christians from all different denominations on how anti-Semitism and replacement theology has crippled our understanding of God and the covenants He has made with His people – the Jews.
