Trumpets 1/7/35/120

Dear Friends,

This day is the Day of Trumpets and the beginning of the Reading of the Law of God in the Sabbath Year of the 35th year of the 120th jubilee.  On this day we will begin by reading the Preface and Introduction to the Law of God and then proceed to the First and Second Great Commandments of the Law.

In the preface we will read of the Great Restoration under Ezra and Nehemiah in the Reading of the Law.  It is now 49 jubilees since that restoration and the Fortieth Jubilee since the baptism of Messiah in the jubilee year of 27 CE.  In 2028 we will commence the 50th jubilee since the Restoration. That sequence is detailed in the paper The Golden Jubilee and the Millennium (No. 300).

The First and Second Great Commandments of the Law of God are the primary articles of the law. The Ten Commandments of the Law of God are subtended from these Two Great Commandments and on these two hang all the law and the prophets.  Christ was quite clear on that fact. He also said that until heaven and earth pass away not one jot or tittle will in no way pass from the law.  We will reintroduce the Law of God at the end of this age with the coming of the Messiah.

This week we sent the Law of God Volume 1 in both English and French to the printers. They will be printed before the Feast and available also in the US for their Feast.  The Law of God is planned to be released as a Hard Cover version in three volumes.

The series of three volumes will be as follows.
Volume 1 is the Law of God set out for the Reading of the Law.
Volume 2:  God Revealed, which is the Law of God and the Testimony of Christ Revealing the Nature of God and the purpose of the Creation.
Volume 3: The Calendar and the Plan of Salvation deals with God’s plan as revealed to mankind.

These will all be printed and distributed and on sale as hard cover from CCG Publishing by the New Year of 1 Abib.

There are also to be a number of other volumes released straight after these three volumes on the law.  The first will be Mysticism and the History of Religions as a two volume hard cover.

The next will be the hard cover of the Genetic Origin of the Nations.  The last paper, The Sons of Japheth: Ashkenaz, will be completed after the Feast and the publication prepared.

We will continue on with the Bible Project and also updating the Bible Correspondence Course and the Commentary on the Koran. Two other works need to be done fully and that is a volume dealing with the Creation versus Evolution debate and also a History of the Church of God.

Hopefully these will be finished by next Feast of Tabernacles.  There is much to do and hopefully we can get it done in time so that we all can be in a position to declare the faith once delivered to the saints.

After the services today we are all gathered to celebrate and eat the fat and drink the sweet and we go through this month in reinforcing the Laws of God and the Testimony or Faith of Jesus Christ which sets us apart as the elect of God (Rev. 12:17 and 14:12).
