Among the new military hardware displayed at a parade in Pyongyang marking the Communist regime's 75th anniversary were what appeared to be a massive new Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (main, bottom right) and new submarine-launched ballistic missile (bottom left). Visual analysis of the new ICBM shows it is larger than the Hwasong-15, which was previously North Korea's most advanced ICBM and is capable of striking anywhere in the continental U.S. 'Trump is really angry about [North Korea's] missile parade' and is 'really disappointed' in Kim after fruitless peace talks, an unnamed source told Vox national security reporter Alex Ward.
They may happen once in a lifetime or not at all. They’re God stories, moments of clarity — those occasions when an individual experiences a profound spiritual change. And suddenly, a long-held, deeply ingrained attitude or behavior vanishes and nothing is the same again.
Last month, writer David Cloud shared several anecdotes from Forrest’s early life that demonstrate the extremity of his personality.
Confederate Army Gen. Nathaniel Bedford Forrest, who earned the nickname “The Wizard of the Saddle” for his aggressive — and highly effective — exploits on the battlefield, and subsequently served as the first grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, underwent such a fundamental transformation.
When his deeply religious mother, whom he loved, was attacked by a cougar, “he got his gun and his hunting dogs, tracked down the beast, treed it, killed it, and cut off its ears to present to his mother as a trophy of revenge,” Cloud wrote in a heavily researched piece for Way of Life Literature, which publishes Bible Study material.
By the time the Civil War broke out in 1861, Forrest had already become one of Tennessee’s richest men. He had earned his fortune through various business ventures, including the ownership of two cotton plantations and a thriving slave trading business.
Forrest “killed 31 men during the war in hand-to-hand combat, had 30 horses shot out from under him, and was wounded four times. In one engagement, he fought four men at once and managed to escape. His brilliant tactics enabled him to defeat the larger Union forces repeatedly. General William Tecumseh Sherman named him ‘that devil Forrest’ and called for his death ‘even if it takes 10,000 men and bankrupts the Federal treasury.’
Although “the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was formed in 1865 … it didn’t prosper until 1867” when it Forrest became its leader.
The KKK, presided over by its new grand wizard, was very active during the 1868 presidential election, and was ultimately responsible for many political assassinations.
“During the election campaign of 1868, there were 336 murders or attempted murders of blacks in Georgia alone to suppress Republican voting,” Cloud wrote.
“Forrest left the KKK … and tried unsuccessfully to disband it,” Cloud wrote.
However, it would still be another six years before he would accept Jesus Christ.
In the fall of 1875, while attending a sermon with his wife, a devout Christian, he was especially moved by the words of Jesus in Matthew 7:24-27:
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock,” Jesus says in the passage.
“But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
In a paper titled “When the Devil Got Saved: The Christian Conversion of Nathan Bedford Forrest,” (a summary of his long-form biography titled “Nathan Bedford Forrest’s Redemption”), biographer Shane Kaster wrote that following the sermon, Forrest spoke to the pastor.
He reportedly said: “Sir, your sermon has removed the last prop from under me. I am the fool that built on the sand; I am a poor miserable sinner.”
The pastor “told Forrest to go home and read and meditate on Psalm 51 and see where it led him,” Kaster wrote.
Psalm 51:1-3, reads: “Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.”
Shortly after his conversion, Forrest spoke before the Pole-Bearers Association, a black civil rights group.
“I came to meet you as friends, and welcome you to the white people. I want you to come nearer to us,” he reportedly said. “When I can serve you I will do so. We have but one flag, one country; let us stand together. We may differ in color, but not in sentiment.”
“Go to work, be industrious, live honestly and act truly, and when you are oppressed I’ll come to your relief. I thank you, ladies and gentlemen, for this opportunity you have afforded me to be with you, and to assure you that I am with you in heart and in hand.”
Following his speech, a young black girl reportedly presented him with a bouquet of flowers, and he responded by kissing her on the cheek.
Two years later, Forrest died at the age of 56, a changed man.
As Forrest lay dying, he reportedly told loved ones there was “not a cloud that separated him from his beloved Heavenly Father.”
There are many phrases in the bible that contain the word “Remember.” To remember something is to imprint an image, phrase, event or memory to our brains. Hopefully we will always remember our loved ones, our favorite vacations, and especially our God! God tells us that we are to remember Them (Father and Son) always, and to remember God's Laws and instructions. God also promises us that They (Father and Son) will remember all the promises made to us! God will remember each one of us... A wonderful thought...
REMEMBER – NKJV (New King James Version) (God's words in RED)
God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that werewith him in the ark.
and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.
And Moses said to the people: “Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt
“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth
To such as keep His covenant, And to those who rememberHis commandments to do them.
I remember Your name in the night, O Lord, And I keep Your law.
Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them”:
“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.
Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me,
No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says theLord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments.
Then he (one of the thieves on the cross) said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”
So we see how important the word remember should be to all of us. Now allow your mind to enter a dream state. Dream of Heaven, the entire Universe and Earth. We know that if we believe what God says, the EARTH is the CENTER of the created physical Universe, as Heaven is the center of all Creation. In Heaven, the CENTER is the Throne of The father God and Jesus Christ.
On Earth the center of Earth is the ancient land known as Israel, located in Palestine. To God, Israel is the center of this planet, and of all creation, other than Heaven. That's why every direction given in the Bible centers from Israel! People from the North – are peoples North of Palestine. People of the South, are those BELOW, or south of Israel. Western Coastlands, are lands WEST in the western oceans FROM Palestine (England and the Americas).
The center of Israel is Jerusalem! Jerusalem is the eternal city, the only one promised to appear in the world tomorrow.
In the Center of Jerusalem is God's Holy Temple, now destroyed, but a PROMISE to be rebuilt before the return of Christ. Christ will rule from this Temple!
In the center of the Temple is the Holy of Holies, where the Ark of the Covenant was placed. On the top of this Ark was a SEAT. It is the seat the Christ sat on while the Temple stood. Christ's Spiritual Presence emitted from this seat! It will again.
Inside the Ark, in the Center was the two tablets of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS! The center of all creation was the Ten Commandments (you know that awful Law that many try to tell you Christ abolished!). On the Ten Commandments are Ten Laws.
That 4th Commandment Begins with this word:
Yes we are to remember the most spiritual of the Commandments, the Center of the world.
Joe Kovacs, a Bible-believing Christian, was just interviewed by the Good News magazine, and was asked by reporter Jerold Aust, “Who are the children of God? What makes them so, or is this simply in-house religious talk?”
Kovacs responded, “If you just look at the natural world around us, you realize that everything reproduces. They have children or offspring after their own kind. I mean, the children of giraffes are giraffes. The children of cats are cats. And what are the children of God? You know people have to come to that conclusion: we’re not here for no good reason. The Bible calls us “the OFFSPRING of God.” (Acts 17:29) It uses the word offspring.
“God is having offspring. And countless times, you will see the phrase ‘children of God’ or ‘sons of God’ in the Bible. In fact, in the famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, ‘Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.’ Paul says in Romans 8:14, ‘For as many are as led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.’ I show you many more verses in ‘The Divine Secret’ but over and over again, the Bible calls us ‘sons of God,’ ‘children of God.’ He (God) says ‘I will be your Father and you will be my sons and daughters,’ (2 Corinthians 6:18), so Jesus is not the only son of God. He’s the only begotten Son of God from the way He came into the Earth, but God wants all of us to be sons of God and children of God.” MORE>>>>>>>>>>
Succot’s priestly tradition of drawing water from the Pool of Siloam drips with meaning.
Wayne Stiles is an author who has never recovered from his travels in Israel—and loves to write about them from his desk in Texas.
While enjoying the movie Ushpizin several years ago, I laughed out loud when the family’s uninvited visitor sliced the flawless etrog and casually ate it. Clearly, he had no clue to its significance! Although the movie’s English subtitles translate the language, the movie leaves the traditions of Succot for the viewer to decode.
How puzzling the holiday must seem to those unacquainted with its modern customs—much less its biblical foundations. Succot marked the most joyful of the biblical feasts because the harvest’s labor was complete, and the people would be grateful to God and expectant for the latter rains.
In addition to the name Succot (translated “Booths” or “Tabernacles” in Deuteronomy 16:13 and Leviticus 23:34), the Bible also refers to the holiday as “the Feast of the Harvest” (Exodus 23:16), the “Feast of Ingathering” (Exodus 34:22), “the feast” (1 Kings 8:2; 2 Chronicles 7:8-9; John 7:37), and “the feast of the Lord” (Leviticus 23:39). At Succot, every seven years on the sabbatical year, the Law was read in the hearing of all Israel (Deuteronomy 31:10-11).
The original purpose of feast centered on an essential reminder: “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘On the fifteenth of this seventh month is the Feast of Booths for seven days to the Lord. . . . You shall live in booths for seven days; all the native-born in Israel shall live in booths, so that your generations may know that I had the sons of Israel live in booths when I brought them out from the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God’” (Leviticus 23:34, 42-43). It was a time to remember how God had delivered them from bondage and how the Lord had provided for them in the wilderness.
This amazing video, recently made for a 44 year old song still rings as true today, if not more so than it did when it was first made. The Plain Truth is all about today's news and one cannot understand the news if we do not understand that there is a God, and that God has told us what to watch out for. If you do not read anything else in your life, read Matthew 24, the entire chapter! God has warned us and it is up to us to ignore HIS word or obey it.
God gives us the choice. He tells us to choose life! He wants us to live, but we must listen to HIS voice. God's voice is not just found in your Bible. You can also find it everywhere you look, if you open your eyes and look for it. Satan may be alive and well on planet earth, BUT GOD IS HERE TOO! God is warning us and talking to us daily. Most just do not pay attention.
General MacArthur, on the deck of the USS Missouri warned us. He said that if we do not find a better way than war, mankind's greatest sin, then "Armageddon will be at our door!" Those words, spoken by the general were from God Almighty! Listen to much of the music, even rock n roll songs. Yes, the Devil gets his message out, and he is THE GOD OF THIS WORLD, but GOD gets HIS message out too!
When Barry McGuire sang this song, he wasn't a Christian, but he is today! In fact, I believe he is now a minister.
When Paul Simon wrote "Sounds of Silence" I am sure he did not understand that God was reaching out to us through his words in the song. He probably did not know that the words were the words of Isaiah that "we hear but do not perceive". The song says: "Hello darkness, my old friend I've come to talk with you again Because a vision softly creeping Left its seeds while I was sleeping And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains Within the sound of silence ........ And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening "
Now compare that to: Matthew 13:14 -""In their case the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says, 'YOU WILL KEEP ON HEARING, BUT WILL NOT UNDERSTAND; YOU WILL KEEP ON SEEING, BUT WILL NOT PERCEIVE;"
The Youngbloods have a line in their biggest hit, "when the one that left us here, returns for us at last." Who do you think they are singing about?
Paul Simon's "Mother and Child" reunion has many meanings for many people. To Paul himself, a secular person, he probably didn't understand the words himself! Read the words to that song and see if God has a message in there. Who is the spokesman in "bridge over troubled water?" It isn't a drug dealer!
God is talking to us. In songs, movies and in THE NEWS! The Plain Truth is trying to show you what God is doing today, by explaining the Plain Truth behind today's news. Jesus is coming. I do not know when. I do know to keep looking for the signs... Listen and watch the video below....
I am sure you have heard or perhaps watched shows devoted to so-called "Bible codes". This is where mathematical rabbis find hidden messages in the Bible using computer programs and are making some outstanding claims about these messages. The subject of "Bible codes" IS NOT what today's article is about. Instead of Biblical codes that are almost impossible for anyone in the real world to discover, we are going to set forth on a journey together and discover possibly the strangest and most important Biblical code of all time. Is it possible there could be a "hidden message" right before your very eyes? You may find this to be one of the most eye opening writings you have ever read about God, the Bible, and Jesus.
If I wrote these words: “The lawn, has long since died” in some foreign language and it was translated into English: “The lawn has died long ago” nobody would see that as much of a problem. Even to the most observant student the missing comma would not be important at all. The reason for this is because it simply isn't needed in the english translation. Now let me throw in a variable. Let's pretend in this make believe foreign language that the “comma” was an important symbol to the writer unlike in English where the comma is only used in the formation of sentence structure. Perhaps to the writer it was a symbol for poison! Then the sentence would be translated, “The lawn was poisoned and died long ago.” The message I am trying to convey is that we may have right in front of our eyes, clues (symbols) to hidden messages that God placed in the Bible long ago. Would you be shocked to know there are actual symbols in the original writings of the Bible that have not been translated at all and therefore are not included in the translations of scripture we read every day? We are talking about symbols that have such significant meaning that they communicate the TRUE identity of God! It is clear to me that to acknowledge these symbols would actually change everyone's perspective not only of God and the Bible, but man's role in understanding His mind and the things He deems are important for us to know about Him.
This is an updated version of an older story on just why America is so special (along with Great Britain and Canada). It's a story of our national identity - a great Feast study topic......
The Feast of Tabernacles is a holy day that is required by God to observe! Most do not know that when the millennium comes, BOTH the Saturday Sabbath and the Feast of Tabernacles are required for the world to follow. Most likely, all of God's holy days will be required, but we know from in:
Zechariah 14, we read, "16And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 17And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shallhaveno rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles."
Isaiah 56, also mentions the requirement to keep the Sabbaths during the millennium!

Someone once asked me, "Bob how can you say in one breath that God has little to nothing to do with this world, yet then say that the USA one of the lost nations of Israel? In addition, that if we do not obey God, our nation will be destroyed by him? Which scenario is it, God involved or Satan’s world?"
I am quite sure that many have asked themselves the same question and let me assure you that there is an easy answer! God was totally involved in our world in the days of Adam and Eve. He (One of the divine Godhead that became Jesus) personally walked with them, talked with them and instructed them how to live in a godly lifestyle and have life forever. God had every intention to be involved in our lives from the start, just as any human parent has those same plans with their children.
Then sin entered the world through Adam and Eve’s disobedience of God’s Laws. Remember there is only one biblical definition of sin. "Sin is the transgression of the law." (1 John 3:4) Without the law, one cannot sin! (Romans 3:20 and Romans 7:7) When Adam and Eve broke God’s laws, they sinned. The Bible also gives us another term: "The wages (or penalty) of sin is death." ( Rom 6:23) Therefore breaking the laws of God, brings death! Therefore, Adam’s sin brought death to mankind.

The events of chapter 7 take place in the context of the Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem. It would be good for us to understand the meaning and significance of this feast, and some of the elements of the ceremony. William Hendriksen summarizes these things for us very well:
On this feast see Lev. 23:33-44 and Numbers 29. It was celebrated from the fifteenth to the twenty-first or twenty-second day of the seventh month, which approximates our October. It was a feast of thanksgiving for the vintage. But besides being a harvest-festival it was also a joyful commemoration of the divine guidance granted to the Atonement, the idea of joy after redemption was naturally very prominent. In a decreased daily scale a special sacrifice of seventy bullocks was made. The temple-trumpets were blown on each day. There was the ceremony of the outpouring of water, drawn from Siloam, in commemoration of the refreshing stream which had come forth miraculously out of the rock at Meribah (Ex. 17:1-7), and in anticipation of blessings both for Israel and for the world. There was the illumination of the inner court of the temple, where the light of the grand candelabra reminded one of the pillar of fire by night which had served as a guide through the desert (Num. 14:14). There was a torch-parade. And above all, everywhere in and around Jerusalem, in the street, the square, and even on the roofs of the houses booths were erected. These leafy dwellings provided shelter for the pilgrims who came from every direction to attend this feast. But most of all they too were reminders of the wilderness-life of the ancestors (Lev. 23:43).55
Jesus Goes to the Festival of Tabernacles
7 After this, Jesus went around in Galilee. He did not want[a] to go about in Judea because the Jewish leaders there were looking for a way to kill him. 2 But when the Jewish Festival of Tabernacles was near,3 Jesus’ brothers said to him, “Leave Galilee and go to Judea, so that your disciples there may see the works you do.4 No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.”5 For even his own brothers did not believe in him.
6 Therefore Jesus told them, “My time is not yet here; for you any time will do.7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that its works are evil. 8 You go to the festival. I am not[b] going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come.”9 After he had said this, he stayed in Galilee.
10 However, after his brothers had left for the festival, he went also, not publicly, but in secret.11 Now at the festival the Jewish leaders were watching for Jesus and asking, “Where is he?”
12 Among the crowds there was widespread whispering about him. Some said, “He is a good man.”
Others replied, “No, he deceives the people.” 13 But no one would say anything publicly about him for fear of the leaders.
Jesus Teaches at the Festival
14 Not until halfway through the festival did Jesus go up to the temple courts and begin to teach. 15 The Jews there were amazed and asked, “How did this man get such learning without having been taught?”
16 Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me. 17 Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.18 Whoever speaks on their own does so to gain personal glory,but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.19 Has not Moses given you the law? Yet not one of you keeps the law. Why are you trying to kill me?”
20 “You are demon-possessed,” the crowd answered. “Who is trying to kill you?”
21 Jesus said to them, “I did one miracle, and you are all amazed.22 Yet, because Moses gave you circumcision(though actually it did not come from Moses, but from the patriarchs), you circumcise a boy on the Sabbath.23 Now if a boy can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing a man’s whole body on the Sabbath?24 Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly.”
Division Over Who Jesus Is
25 At that point some of the people of Jerusalem began to ask, “Isn’t this the man they are trying to kill?26 Here he is, speaking publicly, and they are not saying a word to him. Have the authorities really concluded that he is the Messiah? 27 But we know where this man is from; when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he is from.”
28 Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts, cried out, “Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from. I am not here on my own authority, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him,29 but I know him because I am from him and he sent me.”
30 At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. 31 Still, many in the crowd believed in him. They said, “When the Messiah comes, will he perform more signs than this man?”
32 The Pharisees heard the crowd whispering such things about him. Then the chief priests and the Pharisees sent temple guards to arrest him.
33 Jesus said, “I am with you for only a short time, and then I am going to the one who sent me. 34 You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come.”
35 The Jews said to one another, “Where does this man intend to go that we cannot find him? Will he go where our people live scatteredamong the Greeks, and teach the Greeks?36 What did he mean when he said, ‘You will look for me, but you will not find me,’ and ‘Where I am, you cannot come’?”
37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”[c]39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.
40 On hearing his words, some of the people said, “Surely this man is the Prophet.”
41 Others said, “He is the Messiah.”
Still others asked, “How can the Messiah come from Galilee? 42 Does not Scripture say that the Messiah will come from David’s descendants and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?”43 Thus the people were divided because of Jesus.44 Some wanted to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him.
Unbelief of the Jewish Leaders
45 Finally the temple guards went back to the chief priests and the Pharisees, who asked them, “Why didn’t you bring him in?”
46 “No one ever spoke the way this man does,” the guards replied.
47 “You mean he has deceived you also?” the Pharisees retorted.48 “Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? 49 No! But this mob that knows nothing of the law—there is a curse on them.”
50 Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their own number, asked,51 “Does our law condemn a man without first hearing him to find out what he has been doing?”
52 They replied, “Are you from Galilee, too? Look into it, and you will find that a prophet does not come out of Galilee.”
Genesis 8 "in the beginning of" Verse:4 "the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat."
By Bob Barney
For almost thirty years now, since first discovering that God's calendar could be discovered, and that it was not the Jewish calendar that Churches of God have been following; Along with the revelation from the Bible that the day actually begins at sunrise, I have found proofs of the calendar that the Plain Truth's Red Bible Calendar has used. The real calendar of God explains that each year that Jesus died (it had to be on the 14th day of God's calendar, yet the 13th day on the pagan Jewish calendar, and had to be on a Wednesday... And I proved that here Jesus died on a Wednesday, and also it had to be on the 14th day of the pagan Jewish Calendar, when the lambs were slaughtered. The only date this happened was April 3, AD 30! That meant that the new year was on March 20th, the Spring equinox when God's year always begins! God's calendar is perfect! SEE This source: convert-a-date
Now, to prove this calendar theory even more let's look at Noah and The Real Calendar. That is 12 months of 30 days PLUS 5 1/4 not counted days (see my explanation here).
When did Noah enter the ark? In the 600th year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day all the underground waters erupted from under the earth, and the rain fell in mighty torrents from the sky above.
That would make it May 5th, cinco day Mayo in our year!
How many days did it last before it "rested on dry ground? 150 Days: The the floodwaters gradually receded from the earth. After 150 days, the ark rested...
What date was that in the calendar that I propose? October 2, which is 150 days after May 5th. In the calendar I propose of only 30 day months, that would be the 17th day (3rd Day of the Feast) in the seventh month. What does the Bible say :the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
Should I say any more? God's calendar is NOT the Jewish calendar! The Jewish calendar has been pagan since the Babylonian captivity, some 500 years before Christ walked this earth! That's why modern Jews have names like pagan god TAMMUZ as one of their months... should I say more? See hereand here.
When did Noah and family leave the ark? Almost a year later: 8:13 It came to pass in the 601st year of Noah, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
That is The New Year March 20th!
When did all the water abate from the earth? And in the second month, on the 27th day of the month, was the earth was dry.
Many, who claim that God did away with and The Sabbath Day have a problem, and that problem is with the Bible! In fact, their problem is not only with the words in the Bible concerning the Sabbath Day (as well as Holy Days and even sacrifices) these words SHOULD BE IN RED (like in the Plain Truth's Bible)... You see, The Lord God Himself (non-other than the being who became Jesus Christ) tells us plainly that during the millennium, that animal sacrifices, The Sabbath Day, CIRCUMCISION, and the Holy Days will be observed by God's people, or they will be thrown out of the kingdom! The LAW (which most Christian Churches teach has been abolished) will be in full force! Even God's DIET will be enforced!
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”[a] for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[b] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
Isiah 66:22-23 “As the new heavens and the new earth that I make will endure before me,” declares the Lord, “so will your name and descendants endure. From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,” says the Lord (Jesus).
The Sabbath WILL NOT START AT SUNSET!:
The sun and moon and stars will no longer shine, yet there will be continuous day! Only the Lord knows how! There will be no normal day and night—at evening time it will still be light. 8 Life-giving waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half toward the Dead Sea and half toward the Mediterranean, flowing continuously both in winter and in summer.
Sacrifices and Holy Days:
The reading of Ezekiel 42-46 shows that during the millennium there will be all the principal offerings that were introduced in the Levitical system, namely, the burnt offering, the oblation, the peace offering, the sin and trespass offerings, and the drink offering. In the coming day the sacrifices will look back on the life and death of Christ in this world, whereas the sacrifices of the Levitical system looked forward to the coming and sacrificial work of Jesus.
The same chapters also show the feasts that will be celebrated. There will be a special ordinance when the new order is introduced, in the day when the altar is made and sprinkled with blood. Sacrifices will be offered on the altar for seven days, the blood being put on the four horns, the four corners of the settle [ledge], and upon the border round about (Ezek. 43:20-26). Atonement for the house will be made on the first of the first month and the first of the seventh month (Ezek. 45:18-20); and on the new moons the prince will offer his offerings, and with the people shall worship the Lord (Ezek. 46:2-7).
16In the end, those who survive the plague will go up to Jerusalem each year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, to celebrate The Feast of Tabernacles. And any nation anywhere in all the world that refuses to come to Jerusalem to worshipThe Feast of Tabernacles of the King, the Lord Almighty, will have no rain.18But if Egypt refuses to come to The Feast of Tabernacles, God will punish her with some other plague.19 And so Egypt and the other nations will all be punished if they refuse to come to The Feast of Tabernacles.
We heard it said, The New Testament abolished circumcision, yet once again we know that Passover is to be observed in the millennium, and we have Jesus Christ saying, as LORD:"If there are foreigners living among you who want to celebrate the LORD's Passover, let all their males be circumcised. Only then may they celebrate the Passover with you like any native-born Israelite. But no uncircumcised male may ever eat the Passover meal." How can that be?
The simple answer is that Christians, like the Israelite's 40 year wandering in the desert also did not circumcise their children! Read it for yourselves in Joshua. However, after the 40 years, and before entering into the promised land (think of the millennium) they GOT CIRCUMCISED! Christian, who are raised to SPIRIT on the day of Christ's return are no longer flesh, so those raised immortal will not undergo circumcision, BUT THE REST OF THE physical world WILL BE CIRCUMCISED AGAIN!
The 10 Commandments and THE LAW are FOREVER!
Yes friends, what you have probably been taught, just is NOT what the Bible says about the coming reign of Jesus Christ. He is coming for His saints, and to be King over this Earth, bringing with Him HIS Sabbaths, His Laws, and His will. Jesus said, "If you love Me, keep My commandments"(John 14:15).
