End of the 2009 Feast
By the time you receive this Newsbrief the 2009 Feast of
Tabernacles will be over. Although we did not have many
participants in the Center in New Mexico, we had many who came to our
Paltalk and participated in many
we had over the Internet.
We also had activities which were not broadcast
over the Internet. For example, we had a Star Party where one of our
members brought his telescopes to the Center, neighbors were invited,
and everyone enjoyed looking at stars, the moon, Jupiter, etc. We
render service to the neighborhood and clean the park in front of the
Center; however, due to weather we performed some service indoors
instead. At another time, we went to the
mountains and enjoyed great air and scenery. We had wonderful food,
organic vegetables from the farmers market and the Mission
from Dixon Apple
orchards, and a package of wonderful pears which was sent to us that we all enjoyed
(thanks Tahirah :) ).
We enjoyed all these, remembering God and Thanking
Him for all these Blessings. Of course none of these are
comparable to the experience of the Grace of God which pours to earth
during the time of these Feasts. The whole year and all the endeavors we have done to
Please God give Fruit in this Feast. It is the time when the Lord returns, the last days
come, and the time of judgment is upon us.
That is why after this Feast, which Saves those who
have made it and leaves behind those who have not, the feasts by pagans
and those who are not Godly begin. It is between the time of this Feast
the Passover that pagans have chosen to have their feasts (going against
God). They (those who are not Saved) then keep the feasts of the
pagans, and those Godly people who have remained in the body suffer in this
period until the Feast of Passover comes!
After the Passover, the time for Godly people to
prepare for the Feast of the Lord begins again. They struggle
(Jihad) through the year to Purify to Meet their Lord. When the
next Feast of Tabernacles comes, hopefully they will hear the sound of the
Trumpet and Atone for their sins, so they can Attune themselves to the Call of God. It is then that
they are ready for the next Feast of Tabernacles. May we be
of the Few Blessed Ones who do Receive the Grace of God in these Feasts,
and may our Salvation be assured!
So let us all suffer in this period between the end of
the Feast of Tabernacles and the coming of the Feast of Passover as the
period of pagan activities begins. There will be much
commercialization of their feasts and no (or very little) God will be
remembered. Their feasts are based on ego and none will lead them
to God and/or Salvation. Therefore, come out of them and prepare
for the day of Salvation when we pledge ourselves to God by keeping the
Passover Holy, and God will see if we are sincere in our Hearts!
When the Feast of Trumpets comes, we will be awakened
easily, and will attune ourselves with His Will in the
day of Atonement. We will then experience the Grace in the next Feast
of Tabernacles. We have received our reward, and we will never go
back to pagan ways!
God Is The Greatest.
Special thanks to all those who volunteered to help for this Feast to
happen (All Thanks go to God within them Who Is the Doer). Those
in Albuquerque who did the most work. Those who read from our
teachings on the Internet. Those who took the task of welcoming
all to the Mission and gave testimonials. Those
who participated in the talent night, etc.
