New Moon 1/1/42/120
This is the New Moon of the New Year of the 42nd year of the 120th Jubilee. Twenty five years ago on this day the Christian Churches of God held its first New Year Service. So in normal terms this is the Silver Jubilee of the CCG.
We were free to have decided at the inaugural conference on the previous Sunday what we were to do and what our Statement of Beliefs of the Christian Faith (A1) were and what the Constitution (A2) was to be. In this inaugural process we were able to correct the known falsifications of the Churches of God emanating from the US under the Churches of God (Seventh Day) and the sub-branch of the Sardis system formed by Herbert Armstrong as the Radio Church of God (RCG), later the Worldwide Church of God (WCG).
Our decision was to conduct ourselves according to law and under a written constitution that determined our conduct and regulated our business by vote of the members as the Churches of God had been before us until the churches had been hijacked by criminals in their ministry who did away with the constitution by perjury and false documentation.
Our decision was to eliminate the polytheism of the WCG system which had established the RCG/WCG system as a Ditheist and/or Binitarian system where Christ had been elevated to the role of a coeternal coequal god in operation with The One True God and as a true god contrary to John 1:18; 17:3, 1Timothy 6:16 and 1John 5:20 and the myriad texts of the OT such as those of the Psalms and Deuteronomy chapter 32, Job 1:6; 2:1; 38:4-7 and Zechariah ch. 2 and 12:8.
It was obvious to us that they were polytheist or at the least Ditheist (No. 076) and had no idea what the original church doctrines were and how they had been misrepresented (cf. Binitarian and Trinitarian Misrepresentation of the Early Theology of the Godhead (No. 127B); Original Doctrines of the Christian Faith (No. 088); and Origin of the Christian Church in Britain (No. 266)).
It was also obvious to us that the Laodicean Church was also corrupted and the Adventists had adopted Trinitarianism in 1978 and had never really kept the Temple Calendar at all or even attempted to do so and had not even adopted the false Hillel system of post-Temple Judaism as had Armstrong and the RCG/WCG (cf. Hillel, Babylonian Intercalations and the Temple Calendar (No. 195C)).
All of their ministry were led by False Prophets as was developed in the paper False Prophecy (No. 269).
In the case of the Adventists the false prophetess Ellen G. White had even developed the false doctrine of a Heavenly Millennium in total corruption of the Scriptures (cf. The Millennium and the Rapture (No.095) and the Pre Advent Judgment (No. 176)). The JWs had become totally antinomian and never tried to even follow God’s Calendar (No. 156).
The Sardis system was also infected with the demonic doctrine that Spirit cannot die among other false teachings contrary to the Scriptures. Further, none of them had the faintest idea that the church of the Last Days had to come from the Israelite nation of Dan-Ephraim in accordance with Jeremiah 4:15-16. Even Trinitarian prophecy knew that to be so and the location was prophesied by them to be from the east of Jerusalem between two seas. This last voice was to proclaim the coming of the Messiah. This was to be the Philadelphian church which was to spread through the nations in accordance with prophecy (cf. Pillars of Philadelphia (No. 293)).
Further, in order to restore the Temple Calendar the New Moons had to be restored in accordance with the Calendar in existence up until 70 CE and that kept by the early church under Christ and the Apostles and subsequent Churches of God.
It was fitting that CCG was formed for its inaugural service on the New Moon of the New Year of the Third year of the Third Sabbatical cycle and the Seventh year of the Measuring of the Temple (No. 137), which began in 1987 in the Third year of the Second Cycle. The Christian Church was founded after the declaration of the Jubilee in 27 CE by Christ who declared the acceptable year of the Lord. He began his ministry in 28 CE after the imprisonment of John the Baptist after the Passover of 28 CE. He was sacrificed in 30 CE in the Third year of the First Sabbath cycle and the Holy Spirit was given at Pentecost in 30 CE again in that Third year (cf. Outline Timetable of the Age (No. 272)). All traumatic change in the creation seems to take place in the Third year of the cycle so that the law may not be broken. It has certainly applied in the church that way from its inception.
It was also understood that the Sanctification of the Nations (No. 077) and the Sanctification of the Temple of God (No. 241) depended on the Church and that the CCG was responsible for restoring the Sanctification system that was kept by Christ and the Apostles and the Churches of God for centuries as we know from the writings of Irenaeus, bishop of Lyon, in the end of the Second Century concerning the Passover and the fast of 7 Abib for the Sanctification of the Simple and Erroneous (No. 291) at appendix A. We know for certain that the Temple Calendar was kept on through to the Reformation as we know the Sabbatarians in Transylvania kept the New Moons and the Temple Calendar as we know from the text by R. Kohn in 1894 translated and published by CCG in 1997 as “Sabbatarians in Transylvania”.
The only thing we were not allowed to know with certainty was the time of the arrival of the Two Witnesses (No. 135) as, if we had known that, we would have known with a certainty the time of the Coming of the Messiah and that of the First Resurrection (No. 143A) and that we were not permitted to know with precision. Indeed many things that we did know we were not allowed to publish until it was time for it to be made known, such as the Sign of Jonah etc (No 013) among others. God controlled the sequence and timing of CCG doctrines through the Holy Spirit and we were never in any doubt as to what we were to say and when we were required to say it. Indeed for the first three years of the church or so the demons spent a deal of time trying to penetrate our services so that they knew what was to occur as the plan and their future was revealed through us (cf. Judgment of the Demons (No. 080)).
We have published approx 560 Main Papers and another few hundred Children’s Papers and Summaries. Plus there are some 18 Years of Sabbath Messages with over 73 Sabbath and New Moon and Holy Day or Feast Messages each year. We were to prophesy of the wars of the end from 1997 and then tell of the Economic collapses and the wars in the Middle East from 2001 to 2024. We foretold of the Muslim Spring and the Islamic jihads. It is all unfolding as we foretold it would happen. We hope the Witnesses are not all that far off.
Over the last Sabbath cycle we published the Commentary on the Koran (Q Series) and indeed that was necessary to deal with the last wars ahead of us. So also it is necessary that we publish the full commentary on the Bible very soon.
We congratulate all of CCG for their performance and their untiring efforts over the years and on to the years ahead. Once we go into the First Resurrection those people will no longer be tired and limited in their capacities. Those who for whatever reason are in the millennial system as humans will be well placed to help educate and lead the nations in their process to the Great Multitude.
Do not weary in well doing my friends.
