More Announcements

Here is a comment left on the last posting by “Jim”.  I am not able to verify its authenticity, but it’s consistent with other internal announcements.

————-  Following is the text of the announcements —————–

These are some miscellaneous announcements that are being made prior to the Feast that some will need to be aware of concerning being asked to give opening prayers at the Feast. This matter of giving an opening prayer also obviously applies to anyone doing so at any Sabbath service.

There is more information contained in this email that applies directly to many in the ministry, however, it would be good to make this material available to all within the Church. So those of you to whom this is being sent are being asked to go ahead and email this to the rest of the ministry in the area you are located and/or the region you are over (just as you forward other ministerial information). This should also be made available to all the brethren for their learning and understanding as well. This entire announcement is to be made available in its complete form.

Feast Prayers:

Although this is primarily being sent out so that everyone being asked to give opening prayers at a Feast site have this information, these guidelines also need to be followed by anyone who gives an opening prayer on the Sabbath.

The primary purpose of giving an opening prayer is to help establish the right atmosphere for the beginning of a service, where everyone is to focus keenly upon the message that God has blessed the Church to receive that day. Such a prayer helps to establish a needful transition from general fellowship with one another, to that of a quiet, respectful, and focused attention upon the message.

There are always basic matters that are to be addressed at such a time that should help everyone to focus upon the fact that we have gathered together before God to receive what He and His Son have blessed us to be able to receive. So thanks should always be given to God at such a time and a request for help to receive what He is offering to give us.

These opening prayers are a time that are to reflect the hope, desire, and gratitude that each individual in the congregation has toward the service that God is blessing them to partake in, as well as the fellowship being made available that day, so that each person can indeed say “Amen” – that they are in agreement and are themselves saying, “so be it.”

One of the main reasons for sending this information concerning opening prayers, is that this is an opportunity to petition God for all who are gathered together before Him, and this should be received and given in a strong spirit of humility. This means that the individual giving the prayer will want to do so in a way that does not unduly draw attention to themselves because this most certainly is not about the individual giving the prayer. It is about God and the right spirit of humility and meekness each of us should want to express and live toward Him.

However, there have been some who have been approached in the past concerning the wrong example that they have too often set when giving a prayer. Although sometimes, they seemingly don’t hear what is being said. Giving a prayer is absolutely NOT a time to draw attention to self. It is NOT a time to give a mini-sermonette. It is NOT a time to preach or teach. It is NOT a time to show how well we can present ourselves and/or show how spiritual we are.

It would be good to understand, that because some have consistently done this, that they have held themselves back in potential greater service to God’s Church. Sometimes, such individuals are no longer even asked to give a prayer because of some of these tendencies.

Elder’s Reports:

Some in the Church may not be aware of a requirement upon the ministry to send in monthly reports to the Church. Such reports are to reflect any concerns about a troubling situation that may exist in an area, perhaps some difficult trial someone may be experiencing, or to address some question of concern someone may have. Such reports are mostly to consist of a personal response from the minister as to the affects of current posts, sermons, or other things may be impacting their personal life. These reports are needful to help those in the administration of the Church to have a good sense as to the ongoing welfare of the Church and the ministry worldwide.

In the past, within the Worldwide Church of God, monthly reports were required of full-time ministers for basically the same purpose of keeping the headquarters of the Church informed and up-to-date concerning the Church and ministry. In my experience, it was always an unimaginable thing to hear about some in the ministry who did not follow that directive from headquarters. For me, it later magnified how these same men had a wrong spirit of service to the Church and did not stand fast for God and His ways within the Church. Such individuals reflected a variety of wrong thinking, practice, teaching, counseling, and service to God’s Church. That kind of spirit of neglect and/or rebellion reflects a spirit toward God that cannot be allowed to exist within the ministry.

Since some have been negligent in sending reports, they have either been reduced in their service within the ministry or have simply been removed from the ministry. The ministry needs to be aware of this, as well as the Church. Government, and the administration of God’s way of life, is a most basic characteristic that each member of the Body of Christ is to embrace and heartily live toward God, and most assuredly this applies to a minister. We are also now requiring that if both a husband and a wife are in the ministry that each one needs to send in a separate monthly report.

This is being written because some are still being negligent in sending in monthly reports and it needs to be understood that we are now WELL beyond any grace period that has been given too often to too many. It is for this basic reason that there will still be some who will be removed from the ministry if they do not follow through with this very simple request to respond as responsible servants to God’s Church. It needs to be taken seriously that we are in a most unique period of time in the measuring of the temple and God is moving the Church to be in the forefront of this process.

  1. Here is a complete list of the days between A.D. 29 and 36 on whose evenings Passover began:
    (These are the dates the Jews kept the passover)

    Monday, April 18, A.D. 29
    Friday, April 7, A.D. 30
    Tuesday, March 27, A.D. 31
    Monday, April 14, A.D. 32
    Friday, April 3, A.D. 33
    Wednesday, March 24, A.D. 34
    Tuesday, April 12, A.D. 35
    Saturday, March 31, A.D. 36

    Note something interesting…there is NO THURSDAY in this list….(where Thursday evening begins a Jewish Passover)

    So that the theory that Jesus was killed on Thursday CAN NOT BE.

    Jesus knew what a day and night was. He knew how many hours were in a day.
    (Joh_11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? )

    There are twelve hours in a day, thus there are twelve hours in a night, thus 3 days and 3 nights is 72 hours.

    Why is this difficult to accept? No need to fudge anything, no need to say “well, 3 days and 3 nights are not really 3 days and 3 nights”.

    Christ meant what he said and said what he meant.

  2. Martin , The Jews don’t keep Passover like the Cogs and neither did Christ . He was a Jew Remember. The Friday April 7 th date you posted fits perfect , Thursday night started the feast of Passover or unleavened Bread when the lamb was eaten , it was killed before sundown Thursday Afternoon.

  3. I will have to double check the dates…..I believe they are correct, I did not compute them myself…

    At any rate, according to site, it is the evening of the day listed, so for Friday, it would be Friday sunset…going into Saturday.

  4. The calendar issue is a very difficult issue. It is certainly not a trivial thing to deal with.

    It can be very confusing and hard to understand.

    Since nobody wanted to answer this question I asked, I will answer it.

    Question: What Hebrew month and day was Passover to be observed?
    Answer: Lev 23:5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD’S passover.

    That is, the 14th day of Nissan.

  5. OK…I will use this date: Tuesday, March 27, A.D. 31

    THE DAY IS INCORRECT as listed above.

    The CORRECT DAY is THURSDAY, March 27, A.D. 31, that is March 27, 31 A.D., falls on a Thursday (verified with converter).

    Jesus kept it “a day earlier” on WEDNESDAY, that is, He kept it on the correct evening which was 24 hours before the Jews would have kept it. So for Jesus, the passover “day” would have been from Tuesday sunset to Wednesday sunset, this sounds like the date I list is correct, but the date listed is for the Jewish passover not the correct “24 hours earlier” passover that Christ kept.

    At any rate the Jewish Passover would have been on Thursday March 27th, the one Christ kept was on “Wednesday” the 26th, starting after sunset of Tuesday. (it is more correct to say He kept it on the 4th day).

  6. ANYWAY.

    Here is something surprising.

    It doesn’t matter which we pick (Wednesday or Thursday in the year 31 A.D.)

    Wednseday : **** WAS THE 16th OF NISSAN!!! ****
    Thursday : **** WAS THE 17th OF NISSAN!!! ****

    Did you know that??????

    And Passover was to be kept on the ***14th of NISSAN***.

  7. So I will ask.

    How is it that Christ kept the Passover?

    How is it that the Jews (if they were correct) kept the Passover?

    When Christ kept it 2 days later, and the Jews kept it 3 days later?

    The bible says Christ kept the Passover, or if you want to believe that the Jews kept the correct date, that they kept the Passover.

    YET NEITHER KEPT IT ON THE 14th of NISSAN.

  8. So if we pick a Passover that occurs on a Thursday (Acts pick), then a (Jewish) passover occurring on a Thursday occurred in 31 A.D.

    Or

    If we pick a Passover that occurs on Wednesday (3 days and 3 nights before Saturday sunset).

    We have 2 dates where NEITHER occur on the 14th of Nissan.

    Yet we are told that Christ KEPT the Passover.

    The explanation to this issue will also help explain the calendar issue.

  13. And how can anyone forget The Day Of Christ’s Coming ! May 30th 2012
    This “Day of the Lord” is a prophetic day that has a duration of a full year in its fulfillment. It began on Pentecost of 2012 and it will end on Pentecost of 2013. God has revealed that May 27, 2012 was the “prophetic day” for the return of His Son as King of kings. It will take one year to become fulfilled

    God’s final day has now begun!

    God’s Time , June 15 2012

    Yes, the “Day of the Lord” is a year in actual length. May 27, 2012, was the beginning of the “Day of the Lord” when Jesus Christ will return on the final day of Pentecost 2013.

    This “day” is about Christ’s second coming and all that will build up to that climactic event when he returns on Pentecost 2013.

    Time Has Run Out , September 15 2012
    God’s Church believes that on May 27th God revealed we had entered the “day” of Christ’s return, but that it was a “prophetic day” which is a literal year in length, from God’s Holy Day of Pentecost of 2012 to Pentecost of 2013. We now have 35 weeks remaining before the coming of the King of kings to reign over all the nations of this world.

    Thank God this is His “day!” Now, the “only” One Eternally Existing God will bring an end to man’s governments and man’s religions, as He commands the “Trumpets” to sound that bring about this final end and opens the way for the true Messiah of this world to come on Pentecost of 2013.

  14. Measuring The Temple Part 2
    On a purely personal, physical level, I would rather not proclaim another date of Christ’s literal return as King of kings: however, as a prophet and apostle, I would be highly amiss if I failed to declare that time, if I believed I knew it. On a spiritual level, I am incredibly excited and inspired by additional understanding God is now giving concerning this timing and I am, therefore, deeply moved to have the opportunity to share it with you

  17. Yeah Randy,
    It looks like Ron the Club Fed Con will be missing yet ANOTHER feast so he can once AGAIN attend Bubba Fest in cell block D. Heard it thru the grapevine (that’s another word for GOSSIP, PIG!) that Bubba has a date named “Tina” that he will be partying with for the festivities in cell block D.

    As long as THE TWO PIGS ( not two witnesses, really what they meant to title themselves, but witnesses sounded way cooler and more official than MONEY GRUBBING PIGS ) can collect some tithe cash it will all be good. The PIG and the PIGLET could probably care less Ron won’t make it and has reservations to hang at Bubba Fest instead.

    TICK-TOCK!! Ron might be a little upset after the Bubba Fest. Also heard Bubba was going to trade him off for a pack of smokes and Snickers Bar after the FEST! Rag Doll Ronnie must be a hit in the big house with his newer boob tats on his back.

  18. Now how is it that Ron is running the entire PKG again? He’s in PRISON. It is impossible for him to run a cult and collect the stolen tithe cash. Isn’t it? So Laura, Audrass, and Spineless Jeremy must be cohorts in crime. Right? PKG does not just exist and the P.O. Box needs SOMEONE for pick ups. The Luxury Fund also needs some spenders. Ron can not spend any tithe cash currently nor can he pick it up and deposit it into Weinscum personal banking facilities. Can he????

    Like I have said from day one…………. ALL of the Swinescums are GUILTY. Laurdass is 100% as much as her lil’ Ronnie. Audrass is a 90%er and Spineless is an 80%er according to my GUILT METER. These percentages can be disregarded entirely on the FACT that God’s STOLEN TITHE CASH IS HOW ALL OF THE WEINLOSERS MAKE A LIVING. THEY ARE ALL IN ON THE SCAM, THE LIES, THE MANIPULATION, AND THEY ALL PROFIT FORM STEALING TITHE CASH!

    Audra has directly participated a lot just like mom and daddy-o! So has Silent Spineless Jeremy to a degree. Even if he has not taken his BMW to loot the P.O. Box he HAS received stolen property and / or benefitted which pins GUILT on him also. These losers are NOT kids. They are adults that DO NOT have to participate. They choose to play the game because it is very lucrative. PERIOD!
