Announcements; 2018, 1 Jan –

A very warm welcome to our visitors and friends!  For older announcements please visit the Announcements Category on the side bar.

 

18 May:   A Blessed Sabbath for All God’s Faithful!  Today is the sixth Sabbath after the Wave Offering.  By the calendar God gave to Moses, 27 May is the Feast of Pentecost!

 

17 May:   The UCG COE May 8-10 Report has been posted here and because I see that Chairman Ward’s Pentecost letter is not yet available at the UCG site I have appended that letter to the bottom of the CoE Report.  Also see the new post “The Corporate COG Struggle with Law and Grace.” 

 

16 May:   A Blessed New Moon for All God’s Faithful!  The new moon was sighted by multiple witness in Jerusalem after sunset this evening making 17 May the first day of the third biblical month!  

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.

For HWA and the New Moons see these articles

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.

9 May:   Update-  Israel attacks Iranian assets in Syria.  Heavy bombing in Syria as Israel attacks Iranian, Hezbollah and Syrian sites.    For more see our News Site.

Breaking-   Israel has launched attacks on Quneitra and when stray air defense fire crossed the border the IDF has vowed a strong response.  Syria has announced that any further Israeli attacks will bring a harsh response against Israel.  It seems clear that Israel is now intent on war with Hezbollah, Syria and Iran as the Gaza crisis reaches explosive levels.  For more see our News Site.

3 May:   The Jeremiah study completes today and a series through the Epistles beginning with Romans is scheduled to begin tomorrow.  The Epistles especially Paul, have been twisted to mean things quite different from what they actually say; and a good comprehension of the Epistles is vital to understand the New Covenant and the process of salvation.

The free downloads have been removed from the Literature page and placed at the Church of God News site

 

1 May:   The May News Blog is now up.

 

25 Apr:   New Article “Corporate Church of God Prophetic Errors.”  Based on the LCG “Fourteen Points” article.

17 Apr:   A Blessed New Moon for All God’s Faithful!  The new moon was sighted by multiple witness in Jerusalem after sunset this evening making 18 April the first day of the second biblical month!

9 Apr:   Important:   Those seeking the Jeremiah has been removed for revision and updating.  The series through Jeremiah began anew this morning and will continue through April.

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 and the Twelve Minor Prophets begins tomorrow.  This will be followed by an extremely important brand new series on the Epistles beginning about 31 May.

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.

 

3 Apr:   Because I have been revising and updating the published books into new editions, I have suspended our account with CreateSpace/Amazon.  The new editions will be much improved with new covers and content updated to the latest level of understanding.  Right now I am focusing on updating the website studies, however one new book has been published to try out the new printing company and is now available here

 

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!

 

22 Mar:   I have changed the header picture at the worldwatch.is news site  and also made some changes to the site navigation; removing the Articles page and replacing it on the Menu with the Categories including a new Articles Blog.  Previous bookmarks and links to the old Articles page will no longer work.   The new direct link to the News Blog Category is here.

16 Mar:   Passover New Moon-  The first assessment is that the new year will begin this month and another month is not needed.  The final assessment will be posted about noon PDT Sunday.

Because Passover is on a Sunday or Monday this year, there are still three weeks or about 21 days from now to the Sunday Wave Offering.

I need the moon sighting, which is very iffy from Jerusalem this Sunday [conditions must be perfect and there is only 47 minutes lag time] to set the exact date for Passover.

 

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 This is a beautiful 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.

God’s Word tells us to observe the first visible light of the new moon as seen from Jerusalem 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’s 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 [which are coming after Exodus is completed].

Remember that when Christ comes he will require ll 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.

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.

 

15 Feb:    A very important “MUST READ” post on the start of a Daily Sacrifice and an update on important prophetic news has been published at the COG News Blog.

 

 

2 Feb:   See the new article on how to overcome Satan and sin at the COG News site, and the latest news at the COG News Blog.  A very important Personal Message about this work of Preparing the Bride has also been posted.

The understanding of a gap between the initial creation of the universe and the creation week on the earth did not originate with Herbert Armstrong and has been around for a very long time in the church of God and also in Protestantism.  

30 Jan:    The Next New Moon, Passover and Site Maintenance

Maintenance and optimization of our server, Cpanel and WordPress core has now been completed.  Our sites had become very sluggish taking up to 30 seconds to load; they are now loading at an average of less than three seconds depending on where you are.  The sites can now also handle substantially more traffic if needed.  Our sites were down for a few hours Sunday morning for this maintenance.  I apologize for any inconvenience. 

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.

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.
