Preparing the Way of the Lord

Announcements; 2018

A very warm welcome to our visitors and friends!  

 

9 Nov:   New Moon-  Sunset tonight begins the ninth biblical month.  A Blessed Sabbath and New Moon for All God’s Faithful!  The New Moon is to be observed wit congregational bible studies, or personal bible studies if it is not possible to meet with a like minded congregation.  I recommend that visitors go to the “Sabbath and Calendar” category and review these things this New Moon Sabbath Day. 

 

7 Nov:   New Moon- Although the new moon is not expected to be visible until sunset ending nine November observers will be out looking for the first light of the new moon beginning the ninth biblical month after sunset tomorrow night.  

God’s Word tells us to begin the new month with the first visible light of the new moon as seen from Jerusalem.  The new moon day is an Appointed Time like Passover and is not a High Day, it is to be observed with Bible Studies and the Shofar.  For more information please see the Calendar articles at this category.   

When Christ comes and the Ezekiel Temple is built, special new moon sacrifices will be offered and in addition to the Shofar being sounded in every town, the two silver trumpets will be sounded over the sacrifices in the Temple at Jerusalem.  See Ezekiel 40-48 and the Leviticus studies.

Remember that when Christ comes he will require all humanity to observe the New Moons.  Isaiah 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.

8 Apr:  A Blessed High Holy Day ending the Feast of Unleavened Bread for All God’s faithful.  Please note that because the Sunday during the Feast is today the last day of the Feast; Pentecost is on 27 May this year. 

By observing Passover on the wrong day those using the modern Rabbinic Calendar [finalized in 1178 A.D.] instead of the Biblical calendar which God gave to Moses; the major COG groups will also observe Pentecost on the wrong date.  

 Our Passover Feast of Unleavened Bread series of articles completes today and a series on Jeremiah begins tomorrow.  This will be followed by an extremely important brand new series on the Epistles.

Today the assemblies observe Passover on the wrong day, by the wrong method and we use polluted bread which is white flour instead of whole grain, made without salt or the oil of the Holy Spirit; and we dare to think that God accepts us!  These physical things are indicative of our attitude towards spiritual things!  

1:7 Ye offer polluted bread upon Mine altar. And ye say: ‘Wherein have we polluted thee?’ In that ye say: ‘The table of the LORD is contemptible.

Today’s leaders and elders offer false teachings and demand to be idolized above God’s Word by the brethren, and then  imagine that God will accept this great evil. and bless them

 

7 Apr:  Special Music:   The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir version. The Song of Moses.   The Song of Moses  instrumental with biblical text.

Throughout the sixth day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread Israel crossed through the Red Sea dry shod, as a type of baptism which is itself a type of death and resurrection (1 Cor 10:1-2).   

It is appointed for all flesh to die but the faithful will rise out of the grave – the sea of death –  at the end of the sixth day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread [at the completion of six thousand years].  At the Wedding Feast in heaven (Rev 15, 18). The resurrected chosen will sing the Song of Moses before the very throne of God the Father, just as Moses and all Israel sang this song rejoicing in their deliverance.   It happens this year that the day of the Wave Offering comes on the High Holy Day at the end of the Feast.  Please do revisit the Wave Offering article on the High Day tomorrow.

 

6 Apr:   The new moon of the second biblical month is expected to be seen after sunset ending 17 April.

 

31 Mar:  Special Music for Passover and the Feast-  By God’s Biblical Calendar Sunday is Passover and Monday is the first High Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  “God Will Provide a Lamb”  and God did provide His Lamb.  The word Hosanna means “Save Us” and is the cry of every repentant sinner.  “What the Lord has Done For Me: Hosanna!

 

18 Mar 13:35 PDT:  The new year has been set.  A new post on the Zadok Scale and the new year is now available here

 

9 Mar:   Special Sabbath PresentationPrePassover Song of Confession-Repentance with Korean dance team.  

 

26 Feb:   According to the Biblical Calendar which God gave to Moses, Purim begins on Sabbath March 3 this year.  We will be featuring a special study through the book of Esther this coming Sabbath.

 

24 Feb:  Special Sabbath presentation A song of praise to God the Father and presentation by an Asian group.  Truly the fields are ripe and ready for the harvest.  Do watch this in full screen mode.  Just imagine what will be done when the LORD comes and his Spirit fills the whole earth!  Amazing! 

In only a few days the Exodus study will complete,  Leviticus which is about the sacrifices and their picture of the sacrifice of the Lamb of God is scheduled to follow.  About mid March the series on the Spring Festivals will be presented with several articles on the plan and process of salvation during the week of Unleavened Bread.

 

17 Feb:   The new moon of the 12th month was clearly visible from Jerusalem this evening, February 17, 2018 (which was the end of the 30th day of the previous month).  This makes Sunday Feb 18 the first day of the Twelfth Biblical Month.

 

Passover: Subject to the new moon and the state of the barley harvest around Jerusalem, Passover is anticipated to fall on April 1 this year, with the Feast April 2 to 8.   This date is relatively early and there is a possibility of a need for intercalating another month.  We will have a date certain on Monday 19 March when the new moon beginning the first month of the new year is expected. 

When Jesus Christ comes he will restore all things; which strongly implies that the original precise thirty day months and 360 day year will also be restored and many such scheduling difficulties will disappear.

 

2 Feb:   The understanding of a gap between the initial creation of the universe and the creation week on the earth has been around for a very long time in the church of God and also in Protestantism.  

30 Jan:    The Next New Moon, Passover: Subject to the new moon and the state of the barley harvest around Jerusalem, Passover is anticipated to fall on April 1 this year, with the Feast April 2 to 8.   This date is relatively early and there is a possibility of a need for intercalating another month.  We will have a date certain on Monday 19 March when the new moon beginning the first month of the new year is expected. 

When Jesus Christ comes he will restore all things; which strongly implies that the original precise thirty day months and 360 day year will also be restored and many such scheduling difficulties will disappear.

Meanwhile the next new moon is expected after sunset ending Feb 17th.  Since Feb 17th is day thirty of the eleventh biblical month and no month can be longer than 30 days; Feb 18th is the first day of the twelfth biblical month.

 

18 Jan:   New Moon Report:   The new moon was seen this evening just before a heavy storm moved in.  The first day of the eleventh biblical month begins at sunset this evening.  

Our new study in Genesis is scheduled to begin tomorrow. 

 

17 Jan:   I have been sent a link to an Indiana  winery which produces good wine without the use of pork finishing gelatin. They use only plant based filtering and “fining” products.  No animal products touch the product.  Here is a list of stores which carry these wines.  Here is the; Price list and order cart for 12 bottle cases. Also see the special requirements for orders from Alabama and California at this link.  The label “Blitz’s Best” has been recommended to me as ideal for Passover.

 

14 Jan:   I have made a few changes to improve the clarity of explanations in the Dynasty of David article, the content remains the same.  If you are a long time member of one of the Assemblies please do not think that this article is the same old teaching.  I stand on the Word of God and not on the traditions of men, the article is thorough and solidly Bible based.  Do have a read and you will most certainly be greatly surprised by the Biblical Truth on the subject.  

 

9 Jan:   For a free word processor program the Apache Open Office version of Microsoft Word works great.
