GOD’S FEAST OF TABERNACLES 2013-ANNOUNCEMENTS

To God’s scattered elect on earth in these last days, greetings in Christ’s holy name!

By way of further greeting, as part of those faithful in Christ in this final era of God’s one true church, this short letter, is to inform and cordially invite you, God’s elect to attend God’s Feast of Tabernacles with God’s little flock in New Zealands largest city, Auckland. We will commence Wednesday evening, September 18, for the opening night service.

We also have scattered folks keeping God’s Feast of Tabernacles in England, Florida & San Francisco-U.S.A, Manila-Philippines, and hope to add additional  feast sites in the U.S.A as officially sponsored & organised sites  next year-2014.

From the writers perspective, It is with great grief that we are  not altogether in large feast sites around the world today, nevertheless, we are in ever changing and troublesome times, with spiritual conditions worsening, both in this world, and now,  among many of the churches of God losing their moral compass, and to all intents and purposes, losing sight of the AWESOME PURPOSE, God has for each of us, and putting The-Day, FAR-AWAY, and simply not honoring the Word of God through indifference and disregard.

This is mentioned only in passing without showing the many proofs normally given, due to time and space here. But, the writer, as with others, has seen in so many cases, that gravity of this situation has been gradually diminishing in the minds of so many, to the point where they have become caught up in traditions and customs of men, contrary to the word of God.

In the last 17-years, this remnant according to the election of grace, as well as other remnants we are in contact with, has seen the same with regard to the keeping of God’s commanded Holy days in their seasons, and on their appointed days. This situation has only come to light in the last 25-years in more of a major way, though Herbert Armstrong also realised in the early 1970’s that he had been unwittingly keeping Pentecost wrong for 40-years. That’s no condemnation on this faithful servant, it now becomes clearer that God has only been revealing this important doctrine in these last days! Why? It has now become clearer that this is a further Sabbath test to PROVE ALL the churches, whether they will keep God’s Law or not, whether they are indeed being kept in the true worship of the LORD God, or not. (Ex.31:13.)

In these latter times, we have also seen the churches through some lukewarm ministers, becoming PARTIAL in THE-LAW, not a situation any should want to find themselves in, at the return of the KING OF KINGS, AND LORD of Lords.

As the prophet said in Mal.2:1,2,3,7,8,9. And now O you priests, this commandment is for you. If you will not hear, and if you will not lay it to heart, to give glory to my name, says the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: Yes, I have cursed them already, because you do not lay it to heart. Behold I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it. For the priests lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the Law at his mouth: For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts. But you are departed out of the way; You have caused many to stumble at the Law; You have corrupted the covenant of Levi, says the LORD of hosts. Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as you have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the Law.

Anyone with God’s Holy Spirit should be able to see what God is getting at in these verses, but then again, so much depends on ones perspective, and whether they are truly using wisely the gift of God, or whether they are quenching this priceless treasure!

Thinking about this situation, many verses come to mind, especially Matt.7:22-23. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? And in your name, done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them; I never knew you, depart from me, you workers of iniquity. Lawlessness is spelled out very clearly in I John.3:4 as the transgression of God’s Law! Where is the Law? Why, in the books of the Law, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Numbers, Exodus. The books of the Law clearly articulate the correct keeping of God’s feasts. This is a major stumbling block for the vast bulk of God’s people, physical Israel, and “spiritual-Israel”.

The day the writer has been alluding to above is clearly the day the entire world, including every generation of mankind, have been unknowingly waiting for;  And this day has been prophesied of for thousands of years!  In fact, The Son of God came proclaiming the Gospel message, as he was sent to proclaim, by the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. He changes not, but men do! And that is one reason they are not willing to listen as we read in Malachi.2:  And therefore will that day come upon many, unawares! Even as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. (Luke.21:34-35.)

God is not only a God of POWER, and of love, and of a sound mind, but he is a God of precise detail, and every single detail of his AWESOME PLAN and PURPOSE, he has under his perfect control and authority. Acts.17:29-31. Tells us, “Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God,… God has winked at our former ignorances, but now commands all men, everywhere to repent: Because he has appointed A-DAY, in which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he has ordained; whereof he has given assurance to all men, in that he has raised him from the dead.

Do we see that God has a very specific calendar of events, with a timeline coming right down to A-DAY, that he has APPOINTED? That means his purpose has parameters with many complex and specific timing details relating to the removal of mankind’s governments, dominions and rulership over this planet. He has A-DAY when he will send Jesus Christ, whom the heavens must receive until the restitution of all things and the setting up of the Almighty God’s  kingdom on earth!

As I said earlier, the churches are being partial in the Law, some are fleecing the flocks, others are putting themselves on a level with God, and still some are accepting a leader who called himself, “that Prophet”.

I have had the misfortune of attempting to help certain groups, one in particular who derided, and laughed me to scorn for showing them they were in error, and were actually following a man, even the memory of that man, not Christ. Even though that man had said, don’t believe me, blow the dust of your own Bibles, and prove these things for yourself!  Many will know to whom I refer, but this “minister” said, “I don’t want your help!

Well, I’m sure that to whomsoever God is calling, they will seek the LORD and His help that we offer without any thought for ourselves, but for your sakes, we do offer ourselves as an offering, in the hope that God’s mercy will prevail over the influence of the carnal mind, which is enmity against God, and against his servants.

And as he said in 2 Cor’s.6:1-4; We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that you receive him not in vain. For he said, I have heard you in a time accepted, and in a day of salvation have I encouraged you: behold, now is an accepted time: behold, now is a day of salvation. Giving none offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed: But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses.

You therefore that are reading this, if you have read thus far, must be some of the children of light to whom God inspired the apostle Paul to write to and also encourage them. In I Thess.5:2,4,-6; We read; For yourselves know perfectly, that the day of the LORD so comes as a thief in the night. (If it were not important, God would not have had Paul write these things, because obviously, to some, this day will come upon them unawares!)

Continue; But you brethren are not in darkness, that, that day should overtake you as a thief. You are all children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

Can therefore, all claim to be children of light? That is impossible at this time, it is a situation, we must all be trembling about, and praying for God’s wisdom, God’s guidance and protection, so that we be not castaways, as so many, sadly, have become.

I hope and pray that you all regard the Word of the Living God highly, and seek God at the mouth of his true ministry, the servants of the LORD, of which we ourselves for your sakes stand ready to serve, that the word of God may have free course with you also, as it does with us. Keep yourselves in the love of God, and his dear Son. Amen

 

 

MEANING OF FEAST OF TRUMPETS (5.9.13) (Sermon given 2012)

 

BRETHREN, THE EVENT

   GOD HAS COMMANDED US TO CELEBRATE TODAY, IN THIS ANNUAL SABBATH IS BEYOND “HUMAN UNDERSTANDING! AND YET GOD HAS SEEN FIT TO GIVE IT TO US IS ASTOUNDING!

 

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST AWESOME DAYS IN ALL OF GOD’S ANNUAL SABBATHS, THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST IN SUPREME POWER, & GLORY!!

GOD’S FEAST of TRUMPETS TELLS US THOUSANDS OF YEARS IN ADVANCE OF THIS EVENT- IT’S   FANTASTIC MEANING & EARTH-ENCOMPASSING MAGNITUDE!!!

 

WE’LL FOCUS ON 3 POINTS: HOW; WHERE; & WHEN IT WILL HAPPEN!!

 THIS IS NOT WHAT THE PREACHERS OF THIS WORLD TEACH, BUT IT IS THE TRUTH OF ALMIGHTY GOD!

 PRIOR TO THIS TIME, THE RETURN OF J.C,

 

ISRAEL IS TO BE DESTROYED IN THE PROPHESIED GREAT TRIBULATION.   Isa.9:8,13,14; 10:5-7

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF GENTILES, WILL THEN

TURN & FIGHT THE RETURNING JESUS CHRIST & SATAN’S COMBINED FORCES WILL TURN ALL THEIR FIRE-POWER, AGAINST CHRIST & HIS SAINTS Rev.17:1; Rev.19:19-21;

 

THEY’LL BELIEVE THEY’RE FIGHTING AN OUTER SPACE INVASION  Zeph. 3:8;  Zech.12:9

BEAR IN MIND AT ALL TIMES, THAT ALL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED, AND THAT ALL THEIR ENEMIES WILL BE VANQUISHED BY THE GREAT GOD.                                                                                                                                                                                                       

MY BRETHREN,  THIS WORLD OF AWESOME PROGRESS, AND “INTELLIGENCE” HAS REJECTED THE-GOSPEL MESSAGE  J.C WAS SENT BY THE FATHER TO PROCLAIM,

AND THE ONLY MEANS BY WHICH MEN CAN BE RESCUED FROM ALL THIS HORROR, & THAT IS WHAT WE ARE REHEARSING IN THIS ANNUAL REFRESHER,THIS MEMORIAL; Lev.23:23-25. A MEMORIAL IS A CELEBRATION, WE REMEMBER TO KEEP, EACH YEAR, WHEN IS THIS ONE? ON THE 7TH-NEW MOON, THAT’S DAY 1 OF THIS 7TH-MONTH.

AND ON THIS DAY, IN THE NEAR FUTURE, ALL OF MANKIND’S INTELLIGENTSIA,

THE INTELLECTS, THE PROFESSORS, SCIENTISTS, & EDUCATORS, LEADERS OF GOV’T, & ALL WHO ARROGANTLY POUR SCORN ON THE PROPHETIC WORD OF THE LIVING GOD,

WILL SUDDENLY BE CONFRONTED WITH THE FEARFUL FULFILLMENT OF GOD’S ORACLES, IN BIBLE PROPHECY, SPARKING PANIC ON PLANET EARTH!

PANIC & BLIND-FEAR!!

LET’S SEE WHAT CHRIST WARNED? Lk.21:20,22,36;  Mat.24:29-34 

AT THIS TIME, THERE WILL BE MILLIONS STILL ALIVE ON EARTH, WITH MASSIVE FIRE-POWER, BUT

IT WON’T HELP THEM – NOTHING WILL, BECAUSE THEY HAVE REJECTED GOD FROM THE BEGINNING!!!   Isa.28:22;  29:5,6,8,20

 

 

SATAN’S AGENTS WILL MARSHALL HIS FORCES, TO REPEL  WHAT THEY SEE AS AN INVASION FROM OUTER SPACE

Joel 3: 9,11-16;  Joel: 2:1,2,10,11;  Rev.14:15-20; Isa.66:15-16; Isa.63:1-4,6; Mic.3:10-12;            THEY’LL BE STRIPPED BARE, AND STARTED AGAIN- THIS WILL BE EVERYONES LAST CHANCE!

 

       FOR ALL THIS, GOD IS INDIGNANT AGAINST ALL PEOPLE,  &  HAS A CONTROVERSY, AND HE WILL CONTEND WITH ALL HIS ENEMIES AT THIS TIME

 

THAT IS “A” REASON THIS TIME IS ALSO THE VENGEANCE OF GOD, FOR ZION!

THIS WILL BEGIN, AS I SAID, WITH THE G.T, THE TIME OF TROUBLE, SUCH AS HAS NEVER BEEN SINCE THERE WAS A NATION, NO, NOR EVER WILL BE   AGAIN!

THEN THE DAY OF THE LORD! AND ALL OF MAN’S ARMIES WILL “THINK” TO FIGHT OUR LORD!

 

MASSIVE, THOUGH MAN’S ARMIES WILL BE, WITH FAR-RANGING BALLISTIC MISSILES & HYDROGEN WEAPONRY, TANKS, WARSHIPS, DRONES, UNMANNED CRAFT THAT CAN DROP BOMBS ON TARGETS FROM ABOVE THE CLOUDS…

 

YET, FOR ALL THIS,

TO THEIR DISMAY & BLIND PANIC, THEY WILL SEE THEIR WEAPONS ARE COMPLETELY USELESS!!

 

THEY WILL BE SHATTERED TO REALISE THEIR WEAPONS ARE LITTLE MORE THAN FIRECRACKERS AGAINST POWERS THEY CAN’T COMPREHEND!

Zech.14:1-5,12Jer.25:29-35

 

GOD SAYS NO WEAPON SHALL BE EFFECTIVE Isa.54:17;  Psa.91:5-10; Lk.21:17-19;

 

GOD HAS PROMISED HIS ELECT THAT THEY WILL RISE TO MEET THE RETURNING JESUS CHRIST IN THE CLOUDS,

AS HE DESCENDS UPON THE MT OF OLIVES!

 

THAT MEANS OUR BODIES WILL BE MADE IMMUNE TO LIGHT-SPEED!  STRANGER THAN FICTION, YET TRUE!

 

THE SPACE-SHUTTLE HAS TO RE-ENTER EARTHS ATMOSPHERE AT VERY HIGH SPEED AT ABOUT 120 KMS IN HEIGHT FROM SPACE WHEN IT BEGINS IT’S DESCENT TO EARTH, AT ABOUT 3,400 KPH! (MACH-25)

 

EARTHS’S HEAVY ATMOSPHERE WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON OUR NEWLY CHANGED BODIES, & THIS WILL OCCUR IN THE BLINKING OF AN EYE, IN AN INSTANT!

I Cor.15:50-52; IThess.4:13-17;  

                                                                                 WE COULD ASCEND AS MUCH AS 20,000ft TO MEET THE RETURNING CHRIST IN THE AIR AS HE DESCENDS UPON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES!

THAT’S WHAT IS DUE TO HAPPEN ON THE ACTUAL DAYWE’RE NOW COMMEMORATING IN ADVANCE!!!

 

HAVING READ ALL THIS MATERIAL, HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THAT THERE IS TO BE A REMNANT THAT WILL BE SAVED OUT OF THE COMING G.T? REV.12:13-16, THIS IS ONE-GROUP. VERSE 17; THIS IS AN UNPROTECTED GROUP!

The protected group are shown in verse 6 again, still here in Rev.12:6 THIS PROPHECY IS GIVEN IN DUALITY, FIRST TYPE IN ANCIENT TIMES, WHEN THE PEOPLE OF GOD WERE CHASED ALL OVER EUROPE, AND BUTCHERED, THIS IS SHOWN ALSO IN REV.17:6, (MENTION VS.5; THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS-THE WHORE!

 

THERE IS TO BE ANOTHER MARTYRDOM OF THE SAINTS IN THIS TIME OF TROUBLE, SUCH AS NEVER WAS, AS WE READ IN REV.6:9-11; VS.12 SETS THE TIMEFRAME,

AND AGAIN IN Rev.7:13-14; THESE ARE BEING PUNISHED, BECAUSE THEY WOULD NOT LISTEN, AND THEN THEY OVERCOME, AND REPENT, AND COME OUT OF THE G.TRIB’

 

GO TO REV.3; TO READ ABOUT THIS PROTECTED GROUP AGAIN; REV.3:7-11. FINALLY HERE, TURN TO ZEPH.2:1-3.

 

  THAT’S ALL PART OF THE MEANING OF THIS DAY

 

THERE WILL BE 100s OF MILLIONS OF DEAD FROM THEIR FUTILE FIGHT AGAINST THE RETURNING CHRIST !!!    

 

JERUSALEM WILL BE DEVASTATED!! LK.21:20-22;     Hos.13:9-14;

 

THIS IS THE-DAY OF VENGEANCE OF OUR GOD, UPON A WICKED, HOSTILE, VIOLENT, & REBELLIOUS WORLD!!! HEB.10: 28-31 ISRAEL KNEW ALL OF THESE THINGS WE ARE READING TODAY BRETHREN;     Isa.35:3-4,10  CROWNS OF LIFE!!!

 

HOW GREAT WILL THIS VENGEANCE BE? II Thess.1:3-9; WE WHO HAVE REMAINED FAITHFUL WILL BE SAVED! THOSE WHO REJECTED GOD, AND DENIED HIS NAME,(Rev.3:8.) WILL BE DETROYED IN FLAMING FIRE!!!

 

THERE ARE GOING TO BE FEARFUL TIMES BETWEEN NOW THEN, AND,  THE FAITH OF MANY, IF NOT ALL WILL BE TESTED,

BUT NOTICE WHAT GOD SAYS:           Eph.6:10-14,16-17

 

 

THAT’S THE GOOD NEWS & LIFE ETERNAL IN THE KINGDOM of GOD!

 

 

MY BRETHREN, IN CONCLUSION, WE’VE SEEN HOW ALL THESE THINGS ARE GOING TO TAKE PLACE

 

IT’S THRU GOD’S ARMY UNDER CHRIST, LAUNCHING VENGEANCE ON THE GENTILES & RESCUING ISRAEL’S REMNANT  Amos 5:2-4,15

 

WE’VE SEEN WHERE MOST WILL TAKE PLACE     Rev.9:15;  14:20

 

WHAT ABOUT  WHEN”?        Mat.24:36-41, 31-34, 42

 

PROTECTION IS PROMISED, & REVEALED    Rev.3:10;  12:14;  Psa.91:1-11;  Dan.7:13-14,27

 

LET’S GIVE GOD GRATEFUL THANKS EVERYDAY FOR THE UNSPEAKABLE GIFTS HE PROVIDES FOR US, AS PART OF HIS REMNANT, ACCORDING TO THE ELECTION OF GRACE!

Rom.11:1-2,5,7-11.

 

AND LET’S CONSTANTLY GIVE THANKS THAT WE ARE PART OF THIS MAJESTIC MASTER-PLAN, LET’S NEVER FORGET THIS, TURN WITH ME IN CLOSING TO Rom.16:25-27. AMEN

 

 

Star birth little more than a drop in the ocean, to what is coming!

The LORD God challenges man to understand the glory of his awesome creation, and had written in scripture matters concerning the earth & the stars when mankind was in utter ignorance, as little as 600-years ago, a time when man thought the earth was flat!

What did God say to man thousands of years ago in the book of Isaiah? It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the heavens as a curtain to dwell in: That brings the princes to nothing; he makes the judges of the earth as vanity. Yes, they shall not be planted: Yes they shall not be sown: yes, their stock shall not take root in the earth: And he shall also blow upon them, and they shall whither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.

To whom then will you liken me, or shall I be equal? Saith the Holy One? Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who has created these things, that brings out their host by number: he calls them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one fails.

 

Most of this worlds educators, including the astronomers who took these photographic images do not know, or understand, neither can they comprehend the magnitude of the Great Creator who makes the stars in the endless universe, and who knows them all by name! Nor will they acknowledge that there cannot be a creation without a creator, and that life does not come from dead matter. The facts speak loudly, but they will not accept their own creator until they are forced to! That time is coming, mankind’s allowance of 6,000 years is almost up, and the kingdom of the majestic God is about to replace mankind’s fruitless and ignorant kingdoms and dominions, FOREVER!

 “Have you not known? have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? There is no searching of his understanding”. 

God further threw down the gauntlet here to challenge puny man whom he created, because their ignorant minds can only worship the things they see, being devoid of faith and understanding, they prefer to worship the works and thoughts of their own blinded minds and hearts. That is the sad situation for most of science so-called, astronomers, the medical profession, Politicians and world leaders.

“Produce your cause, saith the LORD; Bring forth your reasons, saith the King of Jacob. Let them bring forth, and show us what shall happen: let then show the former things, what they were, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; Or declare to us things to come. Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know you are gods; Yes, do good or do evil, that we may be dismayed and see it together.

Indeed you are nothing, and your work is nothing; He who chooses you is an abomination. iSA.40:22-26; 41:21-24.

Very strong words thrown down to mankind, who stubbornly refuses to accept the challenge, and PROVE GOD’S very active and everlasting existing and Majestic POWER! But ultimately, words that will return to haunt man when the Great Creator God returns to this earth in blazing power and GLORY at his 2nd-Coming, as long spoken by the Prophets, and the latter servants of our God, the apostles of Christ.

If the Astronomers, stargazers, scientists and professors think this is awesome, what will they think and say when the return of Jesus Christ to this earth reveals terrifying signs in the heavens with the sun and the moon being darkened, and the stars falling from heaven? All this, and WW III breaking out in the Middle East, and the gathering of man’s armies in massive numbers, then to see the sign of the Son of man in heaven as He is coming in the clouds of heaven in power and great Glory and majesty with all the holy angels? (Matt.24:27-31.) By comparison to the Word of God, man’s awe and amazement at the birth of this star, will be totally dwarfed into complete insignificance, and this star birth is little more than a drop of the ocean to what is coming to planet earth! 

 

Newborn Star

THIS is one baby picture you won’t want to miss. The ALMA telescope in Chile has captured a close-up of the glowing material spewing from a newborn star.

The stunning images show material streaming from the baby star at incredible speed, glowing as it plows into the surrounding gas and dust. Astronomers say these illuminated jets are spewing out faster than ever measured before and are more energetic than previously thought.

The glowing mass is called a Herbig-Haro object, named after US and Mexican astronomers. This one is 1400 light-years away in the constellation Vela.

ALMA actually consists of an array of 66 antennas and is relatively new. It’s located in one of the driest places on Earth, the Atacama desert.
