New Moon Message  1/3/38/120

Dear Friends,

This is the New Moon of the Third Month.  From the paper Pentecost at Sinai (No. 115) we see that it was on this day that Israel moved to Sinai.  “On the third new moon when they set out from Rephidim and encamped at Sinai, Moses went up on the mountain to receive the Law and to be set apart as an holy people, a kingdom of priests (Ex. 19:5-6). This presages the comments in Revelation 4 and 5. Israel was borne on eagles wings (Ex. 19:4) as is the Church (Rev. 12:14). Those wings are the wings of Christ.

After three days, on the morning of the third day, in thick darkness, Moses was ordered up on the mountain. Moses was sent to bring Aaron up with him but the people were prevented as were the priests who had to be consecrated (Ex. 19:24). This consecration was symbolic of the preparation of baptism so that they would be ready to receive the power of Pentecost at the coming of Messiah. Firstly, the symbolism was of the giving of the Law, which is the structure of the nature of God and, secondly, the symbolism was of the power of the Holy Spirit from Messiah. Numbers 11:25 shows that the Spirit was poured out on the seventy elders. The Spirit caused those in the camp, namely Eldad and Medad, to prophesy which from Numbers 11:29 was taken as a challenge to the authority of Moses. Moses asked if they were jealous for his sake and said that he desired that the Lord's people were all prophets. The number from this sequence was seventy plus two.

The period leading up to the giving of the Law at Pentecost under Moses represented that whole period leading up to Messiah. He represented the writing of the Law within the hearts of Israel on a spiritual basis. Moses then was given the Law as expounded in Exodus 20.”  See also the paper The Ascents of Moses (No. 070). It is important that we understand this sequence and the meaning behind the movement to Pentecost as explained in the paper Pentecost at Sinai (No. 115) above and then in the Ascents of Moses from the ascents in the Third Month to the Sixth ascent at the end of the Sixth Month.  Each step is significant and represents our stages in the development of the faith under the laws of God.  The Seventh Month represents the feasts and Holy Days concerned with the coming of the Messiah and the reconciliation of the earth with God under Jesus Christ.

This year Pentecost or the Feast of Weeks falls on Six and Seven of the Third month Sivan. It is a two days festival as we know and we are required to be out of our gates as is the case with each feast.

We are also required to understand the function of the law of God and the Holy Spirit in its place in the law of God and the meaning of the covenant.  The law of God proceeds from the Nature of God as we are told from Scripture (See the work Law of God (L1))  It is important that we all understand the fact that the Nature of God and the Structure of the law is the same.  Antinomians who came into Christianity from the pagan Sun Cults seek to do away with the law in their teachings.  They tried desperately to do away with the laws of God and misrepresent the teaching of Christ both at Sinai as the Angel of God and as the Messiah later in Judah.  These aspects are covered in the papers Alleged Bible Contradictions (No. 164B); Antinomian Destruction of Christianity by Misuse of Scripture (No. 164C); Antinomian Attacks on the Law of God (No. 164D)Antinomian Denial of Baptism (No. 64E); Forgeries additions and Mistranslations in the Bible (No. 164F).

No person who teaches that the law was done away and teaches that Christ and the apostles including Paul taught so, will enter the Kingdom of God (see also the paper PAUL: Part I Paul and the Law (No. 271)).  Nor will those who worship on Sundays and at Christmas and Easter with a Friday Sunday sequence and hold to a Trinity ever enter the Kingdom of Heaven other than through the correction of the Second Resurrection and the Great White Throne Judgment (No. 143B).

Occasionally we get people coming to CCG that simply do not understand that Christ was not the only Son of God and that there were thousands of them taught in Scripture. This is especially so in Deuteronomy 32 and at Job 1:6; 2:1; 33:23; 38:4-7; Psalms 45:6-7; Heb. 1:8-9 and all through the Psalms re the Council of the Elohim.  These people simply are not called and are not yet fit to enter the Body of Christ.  They are sent away to study.  When God wants them the Holy Spirit will open their minds and they can be used.

Every one of the Council of the Elohim mentioned in Revelation chapters four and five who constitute the Four Cherubim around the throne of God and the Twenty Four elders tasked with monitoring the prayers of the saints are part of the Sons of God as is Christ with them. One cannot understand the Bible and the formation of the Heavenly Host and the role of humans in it unless you understand the function and structure of the Sons of God. 

John 10 [34] Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your law, `I said, you are gods'? 
[35] If he called them gods to whom the word of God came (and scripture cannot be broken), 
[36] do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, `You are blaspheming,' because I said, `I am the Son of God'? 

We are coheirs with Christ and all to become sons of God and elohim (Jn. 10:34-36; Zech. 12:8).
The entire heavenly Host are all sons of God and if you don’t understand that fact you do not understand the Bible and the Plan of God.

The worshippers of the god Attis brought the heresy of the elevation of Christ into the faith from Rome and through later Protestantism (see the paper Binitarian and Trinitarian Misrepresentation of the Early Theology of the Godhead (No. 127B). Until you understand that fact you are useless to the faith and part of the reason for the errors in the Last Days.

The Churches of God were infected with this disease under Armstrong. They simply did not understand that the parable of the Prodigal Son was directed at Satan and the Fallen Host (see the paper Lost Sheep and The Prodigal Son (No.199)).

Each of us is required to deal with these heresies. We are required to educate people as to their errors.  If they do not listen then they are not to be inducted into CCG. Simply send them off to do more study.  When they are prepared to work and interact with the brethren then they can return. When it’s their time and they are predestined God will open their eyes and we will be given them to induct (Rom. 8:29-30). Until then they may as well go and play golf. At least then they will not harm the people who are called. We saw the massive damage the WCG system did to those who were called in that system. The people of that system were scattered to the four winds.  Some 300,000 people were rendered useless by false doctrine and oppression and unconverted behaviour and by lies and division.

Baptism is the start of a long road of learning and our people have paid with their lives rather than compromise the faith. So it must be with us.  Study now and prepare yourselves for Pentecost at the end of the Omer count in seven days time for we are now on the 44th day of the count.
