Bible Study: Jesus Christ And The Day of Pentecost (Part One)

Jew and Christian alike can rejoice together in the awesome strategy God reveals to us through the annual Holy Day of Pentecost (observed this year, according to God's calendar, tomorrow, on Sunday, June 04, 2017)! God has planned our work; now it’s time to work His Plan!

Bible Study Instructions: One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us) publishes and distributes weekly Bible Studies, worldwide – free of charge, to anyone who requests them, in both printed and electronic formats. Our Studies are intended to be a simple and fun way to learn the Scriptures, and are very easy to follow! We adhere to Jesus Christ’s Biblical instructions to teach and feed the flock of God portions of meat in due season, on weekly Sabbaths, and on the seven annual Holy Days throughout each calendar year (Luke 12:42 / Isaiah 28:9-10 / Matthew 13:52). Using both the Old and New Testaments, our Bible Studies are designed to present a premise, make a statement, or ask a question – followed by one or more Scriptural references. Just look up and read from your Bible the Scriptures listed. Comments following questions elaborate on the Scriptures you just read. Pray always before beginning any study of God’s Word, asking God to open both your eyes and your mind to His Truth; then Prove everything you read, is in fact the Truth, by comparing it to The Word of God (1 Thessalonians 5:21 / 2 Timothy 3:15-17). Then use the Biblical System of Checks and Balances, and SEE if both Jesus Christ, and the First Century Church of God Apostles – also Did, Said, and Taught these SAME THINGS (Galatians 1:1-12, 5:25 / 1 Peter 2:21, 25 / 1 John 2:3-6)! That’s all there is to it! Our Bible Studies are based on the King James Version, unless otherwise stated. We will be praying for your eyes to “see” (Matthew 13:11-17); and we are always available to answer any of your questions! Be Blessed, in Jesus’ Name! - One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us).

"And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations” (Read Leviticus 23:1-4, 10-22). Remember, the God of the Old Testament, the One who spoke the Words you just read, was none other than Jesus the Christ (1 Corinthians 10:1-4)!

Did you know the Feast of First Fruits (or Pentecost – meaning to count fifty days) is also called the Feast of Weeks, or Feast of Shavuot in Hebrew; and it is the third step in God’s revealed Plan of Salvation? This prophetic Holy Day has already been fulfilled, in part, in both the Old and New Testaments; but most exciting of all is that its major fulfillments are for times yet future – and when they occur, it is going to BLESS ALL OF MANKIND (Genesis 12:1-3, 22:11-18 / Galatians 3:6-9)!!! Tomorrow is the day we call Pentecost in the New Testament; actually, it begins in just a few hours from now, at sunset today!

Pentecost means nothing to most people today; but it should! You see Pentecost is the day on which the Church which Jesus Christ built was founded! So sunset tonight is our Anniversary of The Church of God; and God tells us through Jesus Christ, to celebrate that day, and celebrate it we shall! :o)

Now our English word “church” comes from the Greek word “ecclesia”, which means a crowd or a group; but when we use the translation of ecclesia today, as in “The Church of God”, the word means Assembly or Congregation! It was a group of people in the Old Testament known as “the Congregation of Israel”; who were the firstborn children of Israel. We today, are the Church of God; but more importantly, and in contrast to the Congregation of Israel, we are the “Spirit-Begotten” Church of God! Celebrating our Church Anniversary means we understand that right now, at this very moment in time, you and I are the Children of God because we have the Spirit of God dwelling inside our flesh and blood bodies! God’s Spirit bears witness with our human spirit, that we are in fact, right now, the Children of God! Do YOU “KNOW” that? And do YOU “BELIEVE” that? Read it with me in 1 John 3:1-3. Knowing, Believing, and Hoping in this very FACT, actually purifies our flesh, changes our flesh and our minds; making them ready – at the return of Jesus Christ (even though we may die before He returns) – to be “Born Again” as God Beings, just like our Elder Brother Jesus Christ is right now!!!

Pentecost is the Promise we are going to look just like this: Revelation 1:13-19 / Daniel 12:1-3 / Hebrews 2:10, 11:39-40). When we look like Christ, and when we act like Christ, then we can BLESS ALL OF MANKIND, implementing the very same promise Christ made to Abraham - by instituting The Kingdom of God upon this earth – FOREVER!!!  

When we decide to follow Christ’s instructions and personal example (John 13:15-17), and do what Jesus physically, in the flesh, commanded His Disciples and His Church to do; and actually observe the seven annual Biblical Feasts - the pattern of God’s overall Plan for mankind becomes very clear! Those who reject these Feast days (which, unfortunately, is most of modern “Christianity”) will struggle to understand the purpose of human life, and God’s timetable of Salvation for the whole human race!

Modern Christianity has not only rejected God’s Holy Days; they have now for the most part substituted man-made, and even worse, “pagan” holidays for the things of God (Isaiah 5:20-21, 23-24 / Deuteronomy 12:28-32). As a result, of this disobedience toward God, MOST of Christianity in the world today, has absolutely no clue as to WHAT God the Father is planning to do; nor do they know HOW and WHEN He is planning on doing it!!! But Praise God! Not only does God’s Church know His Plan, they are actively involved in proclaiming that Plan, and are going to participate in that Plan - in the very near future!!!

This is precisely why, in America today – for example; we have over 300,000 different churches, 217 different Christian denominations; all teaching, believing, and doing different things (Matthew 5:17-20)! If you teach any one of a hundred watered down versions of modern day Christianity, these churches will quickly welcome you into the fold, as just another flavor of the Great Universal Church. But if you hold to Matthew 5:17-20 in practice, and “do, say, and teach” others Christ’s very example from Scripture alone; these same churches will ostracize you!

An interesting footnote in history is that in Ancient Greece, it was not uncommon to have someone banished (or ostracized) from a city by popular vote, for five – sometimes up to ten years, simply because they had become unpopular, or had become a too powerful citizen (they didn’t fit in well with the crowd)! Being empowered by an Omnipotent Christ; with His Spirit and His Truth, can have the same effect in modern Christianity. It can get you expatriated from your family, your job, or your church, if you grow too powerful in the Word and begin promulgating an unpopular theology, which is also known as God’s Truth (John 14:6, 15, 21, 23-24, 15:14)!!! www.onug.us

As astounding as this may sound, most who profess Christ as their Savior today, have LOST the knowledge of God’s Plan for this world and humanity, when they stopped observing God’s Commanded Holy Days; particularly the Feast of Pentecost (Deuteronomy 5:29-33 / Psalm 111:10 / Hosea 4:6).

Pentecost is all about WHOM God is selecting to become Kings and Priests in the world tomorrow, HOW He will train them for these positions, and WHEN He will make this all come to pass!!! Hosea is speaking of those who rejected God’s calling of the Pentecost; they rejected God, so God rejected them as Priests in His Kingdom (Matthew 22:1-14)!

Wow! Our awesome inheritance, to be kings and priests with Christ – ruling on the earth for a thousand years is no longer taught in most churches today! They have rejected God’s Word, His Commanded Feast Days; and God has rejected them! Most churches have lost the knowledge of their potential inheritance (see Revelation 20:4-6, 5:10 / Matthew 5:5). Christ offers us the chance to become kings on this very earth – to make a real difference in this world (Matthew 6:10); and we instead, just want to lounge around heaven in eternal retirement – doing nothing except indulging ourselves on the clouds! Do you really want to be a “Cloud Potato”? I don’t!!! And Jesus Christ Commands that you and I teach no such LIE in His Name (Revelation 21:8)!

Jesus even warned us, that MOST of the “Christian” churches would have it wrong in the end times; only a FEW would have it right (Matthew 7:13-14 / John 10:16)! But humanity as a whole, continues to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:15-17, 3:4-6) – Humanity still wants to “be like God”, and decide for itself what it will listen to, and what it won’t! Humanity wants to decide for itself, which Scriptures it will follow, and which Scriptures are “done away with”!!! Instead of heeding a personal warning from our Savior, Himself, and being aware of, and running from false prophets, ministers, teachers and churches; we have instead run directly to them, and embraced them - with dire consequences, so says the LORD (Matthew 7:15 / Isaiah 30:8-11)!

Have you ever told a True Minister of God to get out of your way? Have you ever told Jesus Christ to cease from before you, or to stop leading you in the Path of Righteousness? The Bible is clear on the fact that many have, with dire consequences (Isaiah 30:12-17)! www.onug.us

 

 

 

We Must Learn How To Recognize God’s Voice, And How To Return Unto Him!!!

You and I are being called by God to return to His Commandments, to return to His Sabbath rest, to return to His Holy Day Feasts, and to return to a restored relationship with our Heavenly Father! But we must first recognize the invitation in order to accept it!!! www.onug.us

If you were buying an apple tree, would you buy one with oranges on it? Of course not! You would have had to been deceived if you did – or just plain dumb! God says we can know where to learn His Truth from, and discern, simply by looking at “the fruit” on the tree (Matthew 7:16-20). God’s people will be discernible by the fact that they keep His Commandments and observe His Holy Days (Exodus 31:12-18). Is there Godly fruit on your tree?

Today, we have a “smooth” Christianity that conforms to our senses and desires. So many churches teach: “Just confess Christ with your mouth, and you will be saved!” - as a stand-alone statement; or they say, “It would be nice, if you showed up to church as a minimum, on Christmas and Easter, but if you just accept Jesus into your heart, and love God, and love your fellow man - you’ll go to heaven and be with Jesus when you die! You are saved!”

Did Jesus really say that’s all there is to getting “SAVED”? Let’s see... (Matthew 7:21-29). The One who has Authority – ALL AUTHORITY, tells us we MUST keep His Holy Feast Days and Sabbaths, we must convocate on these days, and study on these days - to learn and to show ourselves approved unto God! To think otherwise, is to delude ourselves of Truth!!! It is no different than a dead tumble weed, aimlessly blowing across the open plains, somehow hoping and praying to become a mighty oak tree in a great forest in some distant land. A tumble weed will never become a mighty oak; and Christians who reject participating in Pentecost (or any other Holy Day for that matter) will never come up in the First Resurrection (Revelation 22:14)!

Introducing God’s REAL Plan of Salvation: www.onug.us

Step One: The Feast of Passover is the annual memorial of the sacrifice of Christ, when Jesus told us to partake of the vital symbols of the bread and wine and the ordinance of humility (foot washing) on the eve of His crucifixion (Matthew 26:17-29 / John 13:1-17). Christ’s sacrifice makes possible the forgiveness of one’s past sins and the opportunity for a completely new start, living in harmony with God’s will. This constitutes the first step in the Plan of Salvation (Leviticus 23:4-5).

Step Two: The Days of Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23:6-8) picture God’s people today, coming out of their sins; just as ancient Israel coming out of Egypt, typified coming out of the bondage to sin. This is the second step in the Plan of Salvation. But another vital step is necessary in order to successfully overcome sin in this physical life...

Step Three: The Feast of Pentecost centers on The Holy Spirit of God. Pentecost pictures the very POWER of God given to men, so that we can start to become like God in the flesh; then eventually, after a lifetime of overcoming sin – we can become “gods”, just like Jesus is God, in God’s Spiritual Family (Psalm 82:1-8 / John 10:27-36 / Hebrews 2:10-17 / 1 John 3:1-10)!!! The first group of people who do this, will come up in the First Resurrection as Kings and Priests (Revelation 5:10); the rest of humanity will follow us 1,000 years later in the Second Resurrection (Revelation 20:5)!!! www.onug.us

The significance of the Day of Pentecost and God’s Plan of Salvation, is the understanding that God WILL save the whole world and WILL pour out His Spirit on ALL flesh; it just won’t happen all at one time, but by a step by step divine process!!

We can have our plans for how God is going to do things (HUMAN WISDOM), and God has His Plan for How He will do things (DIVINE WISDOM). In the end, our plans won’t matter very much, if we haven’t adopted His Plan as our plan. In that case, we will be like the tumble weed - with delusions of grandeur (Matthew 7:21 / Proverbs 14:11-12, 12:15, 16:26 / Romans 6:20-23)!

Pentecost - First In Stone, Then On Flesh: www.onug.us

From Mount Sinai God first gave us the His Law, His Commandments; two tables of testimony written in stone, on the Feast of Pentecost (Exodus 31:18, 32:1-32). Later, after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; those whom God called into His Church would have The Law written in their inward parts and in their hearts (Jeremiah 31:33). This was made possible by the Power of the Holy Spirit, also given to the Church of God, on the Feast of Pentecost in A.D. 31 (Acts 2:1-4). Tomorrow, that would have been exactly 1,985 years ago, to the very day!!!

The Fall Harvest and The World To Come:

The seven annual Biblical Feasts are tied to the two harvest seasons in the region of Judea. The first season is the small spring harvest (Pentecost), followed later by the main harvest that occurs in the fall (the thousand year millennium, and afterwards the Second Resurrection) See Leviticus 23:33-44. The spring harvest is very small compared to the much larger fall harvest that follows it. These two harvests foreshadow God’s plan to save ALL of Mankind!!!

In the Bible we see that the small spring harvest of the first fruits did not begin until the high priest presented the wave sheaf offering (the first of the first fruits) for God to accept. This pictured Jesus Christ (John 20:17-19 / Leviticus 23:10-11). Once God the Father accepted Jesus as the First of the First fruits, God’s Plan of Salvation could begin! This small harvest of the first fruits (or those called by His Name, in this age) will not take place until the Return of Jesus Christ. Reading 1 Corinthians 15:20-23 makes this clear:

“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by Man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the first fruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming” (1 Corinthians 15:20-23). That is WHY we COUNT from Christ (the First Fruits), 50 days until Pentecost (the first harvest of the Sons of God). God accepted Christ as Savior shortly AFTER the sunset of the Sabbath on which He was resurrected (Sunday night); likewise, Christ will accept us as the Kings and Priests of His Kingdom, IF we count correctly from the new moon and Passover, keeping The Holy Days in their seasons, and following the example of Christ!!! www.onug.us

We must understand a TRUTH of God here: God is NOT calling the whole world now, only those who will come up in the First Resurrection! This is made plain in the above scripture, along with 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 1 John 3:1-2, and Revelation 20:1-6. The rest of the dead, those not called by God at this time, will come up in the Second Resurrection (Ezekiel 37:1-28 / Matthew 10:14-15 / Revelation 20:7-15 / Isaiah 65:20). These others, who come up from their graves in the Second Resurrection, will then have an opportunity to learn the TRUTH of God and enter into His Salvation and Eternal Life (Luke 16:22, 23:43)! www.onug.us

Does Your Minister Misquote Scripture To You?

“To be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:8):

Many ministers quote the previous scripture as such, “To be absent the body is to be present with the Lord”; usually to justify to those present at a funeral, that the deceased is now in heaven with Jesus. This context is untruthful, and in opposition of the clear intent of God’s Holy Scriptures, and the very Words of Jesus (John 3:13). I have heard this re-rendition given by ministers, at countless funeral services; but I have never heard them quote the scripture book, chapter and verse along with it, so people could look up and read this scripture for themselves!

Remember, 2 Corinthians 5:8 comes in chronological order AFTER 1 Corinthians 15!!! Let’s read a few verses from 1 Corinthians 15 and be scripturally HONEST before we go to 2 Corinthians.

- 1 Corinthians 15:1-4  The True Gospel of God’s coming government to this earth, which offers (v:2) in addition to this TRUTH (also), Salvation to those who believe; and speaks to the Lord’s Passover, crucifixion, and resurrection ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES (which show a Sunday resurrection, Good Friday and Easter, to be a lie! See also: Matthew 28:1-10 / John 20:1-22). Christ was resurrected before the end of the Sabbath, before 6 p.m. Saturday, and before the start of Sunday, the first day of the week, which begins to “dawn” after 6 p.m., on Saturday evening! Scripture says Christ was resurrected on a Saturday, in the late afternoon BEFORE sunset, and Scripture cannot be broken (John 10:35); then according to the same Scripture, the resurrection from the dead of God’s Saints, will ONLY be at the Return of Christ – and at that time we shall be gods!!!

- 1 Corinthians 15:12-20 [The resurrection of the dead (in either the first or second resurrections) is so connected to Christ’s own resurrection, that you CANNOT have one without the other two! The fairy tale of floating up to heaven immediately upon death is found nowhere in scripture! It is a lie from the pulpit!!!]

- 1 Corinthians 15:21-23 [We SHALL (future tense) all be made alive, but IN OUR OWN ORDER! Jesus was first, those who have part in the First (spiritual) Resurrection (at his coming!!!) will be the next humans to receive eternal life! Then the rest of humanity (Revelation 20:4-6) will come up from their graves in the Second (physical) Resurrection at the end of the thousand year reign of Christ on earth (Ezekiel 37). Those who come up in the Second Resurrection, as physical flesh and blood humans – will be given The Word of God and The Spirit of God inside them- and will have a hundred years to either accept Christ as their Savior too (Isaiah 65:20), or they will be rejected by God and cast into the lake of fire [the Second Death; so named because you “die” a second time, this time permanently! (Revelation 2:11, 20:6, 14, 21:8)]; and will not experience eternity – they will cease to exist (Revelation 21:3-8). www.onug.us

Paul speaks to us about those “First Fruits” who will come up in the First Resurrection. He chastises those who do not believe in a resurrection of the dead at Christ’s return, and warns us to steer clear of false ministers who were, even in his day, teaching people that when they died they went to heaven (1 Corinthians 15: 33-38). Our reward (the office we will hold in His Kingdom) and our glorified spiritual body is determined by Jesus at His return to this earth (Romans 2:5-6 / Revelation 2:23, 20:12-23 / Jeremiah 17:10 / Matthew 12:36-37, 16:27 / 2 Corinthians 5:10 / Proverbs 24:12).

The reward of those, who are pictured in the Spring Harvest (Pentecost) is magnificent! Read aloud, and listen to the Glory we shall receive (1 Corinthians 15: 39-49 / Revelation 1:12-19 / 1 John 3:1-10). Being absent the body, and present with the Lord, will happen; but only according to God’s Plan, not after Satan’s lie – no matter how strongly some may believe it!

Those who are Christ’s know these things because Jesus has revealed them to us (Revelation 1:1-3 / John 15:15)! We wait on Christ’s Second Coming, to reward those of us who keep the Commandments of God and His Holy Days (1 Corinthians 15:50-58). Now do you SEE what the Feast of Pentecost reveals to us?

The Spring Harvest and Fall Harvest: www.onug.us

Remember, those who keep God’s Holy Days (not imitation, false “holidays”) or God’s Commanded Feast Days, gain the understanding that they are connected to the two harvest seasons in the region of Judea. The Spring Harvest is very small when compared to the much larger Fall Harvest. The Spring Harvest begins during the Days of Unleavened Bread, and ends at the time of Pentecost (also called the Feast of the Firstfruits). Leviticus 19:10, 23:22 / Deuteronomy 24:19-20 / Ruth 2:2 – do you fully understand what God is saying here (Revelation 3:11-13, 21:1-8, 22-27)?

The intervening period of 50 days, in the Old Testament, between the acceptance of the wave sheaf and the completion of the harvest, symbolizes the nearly two millennia that will have elapsed in which the first fruits (the Church of God) will have overcome sin, developed Godly character, and qualified to rule in the Kingdom of God, at the Second Coming of Christ.

“For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace” (Psalm 37:3, 9, 11, 22, 29, 34 / Matthew 5:5).

“And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth” (Revelation 5:10).

“Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years” (Revelation 20:6).

Pentecost: The Outpouring of the Holy Spirit      www.onug.us

Jesus Christ promised His disciples that after His departure, He would not leave them comfortless, but would send them spiritual help (John 14:16-18). Christ repeated this promise, of sending forth spiritual power, even after His resurrection from the dead (John 20:21-22 / Acts 1:8).

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

The sending forth of God’s Spirit is the central meaning of Pentecost.

God chose the Day of Pentecost, in A.D. 31, to start His Church, pouring out His Holy Spirit on about 120 believers (Acts 1:15). The disciples, who had been trained by Christ for three and a half years, had received the Holy Spirit just a few hours after Christ was resurrected from the dead (John 20:18-23), and began to fulfill their responsibilities as apostles. Now, on Pentecost, many more received His Spirit.

“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come (noon), they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:1-4). www.onug.us

The speaking in various languages occurred as a crowd of people gathered in Jerusalem; with each visitor hearing the speech of the disciples in his own native tongue (verses 6-11). These astounding events demonstrated the presence of the Holy Spirit.

The apostle Peter, now filled with the Holy Spirit, boldly explained the event to the crowd as a fulfillment of Joel's prophecy:

"And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams” (Acts 2:14-17 / Joel 2:28).

Peter explained how his listeners could also receive this Spirit, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call” (Acts 2:38-39).

God used these miracles and Peter's preaching to add 3,000 people to His Church in one day. These converts were all baptized and received the Holy Spirit (verses 40-41).

From Pentecost To The Second Coming of Jesus Christ:

From this pivotal point in human history, God's Spirit has been available to all who truly repent and are properly baptized. The Day or Feast of Pentecost is an annual reminder that God poured out His Spirit to establish His Church with believers who are led by His Spirit. From Scripture we know that God will eventually make Salvation available to all people and all nations.

"All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord, and shall glorify thy name" (Psalms 86:9).

“For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe” (1 Timothy 4:10).

The Blessing of the Feast of Pentecost, depicting God’s first and small spring harvest, gives us knowledge of the order in which God will save mankind! The First Fruits represent those now called into God’s Church, in this age (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 / Revelations 20:4 & 6). www.onug.us

The vast majority of humanity will only be called during the Millennium Reign of Christ, and at the second resurrection; after the close of the Millennium (Revelation 20:5, 12-15). Only a tiny minority are called now, to fulfill a special purpose in God’s Plan of Salvation. We should be humbled and honored to be in that number (John 3:5-12 / Isaiah 30:20-26 / 1 John 3:1-3 / Hebrews 3:1, 2:9-13 / 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)!

The Feast of Pentecost was not a “Jewish” Holy Day that was done away with when Christ rose from the dead.

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:17-18).

Moses may have stuttered, but Jesus Christ did not! The Word of God, Jesus Christ - our Savior, commanded His people to keep these Holy Days, forever, throughout our generations, and to teach them diligently to our children. When God says “forever”, that is precisely what He means (Leviticus 23: 14, 21)!

The Apostolic Church, those that personally knew Jesus, set us a proper example by continuing to keep Pentecost (Acts 20:16 / I Corinthians 16:8); and by teaching others to do the same. We also can see in scripture that the Holy Days will continue to be observed in the coming millennium, by the authority and direction of Jesus Christ (Zechariah 14:16-19 / Isaiah 66:23-24).

“Whether it be good, or whether it be evil, we will obey the voice of the LORD our God, to whom we send thee; that it may be well with us, when we obey the voice of the LORD our God” (Jeremiah 42:6).

“For I have given you an example that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, the servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent, greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them” (John 13:15-17). www.onug.us

We are honored that you joined us today in the study of God's Word!

I hope you will join us tomorrow, on Sunday, 04 June 2017, as we keep the LORD’s Holy Feast Day of Pentecost on the 1,986th anniversary of the founding of God’s New Testament Church, according to God's sacred calendar and exactly like Jesus Christ showed us and told us to do (Acts 1:1-11). May you and your family have a Blessed and Happy Pentecost Feast!

God is calling YOU to be a follower of Jesus Christ, and the first century church, can you hear His Voice (1 John 2:6 / Matthew 11:29)? The Sabbath and Holy Days show us God’s Plan. When we keep these Holy Days we become the very Voice of God to this fallen world; we are in effect saying, by our actions on each Feast Day, “Come LORD Jesus, Come” (Revelation 22:12, 17, 20-21)!!! We are actually confessing Christ before men (Matthew 10:32-33)!

The faithful and obedient in Christ will always keep God’s True Holy Days and Sabbath; and will reject the pagan lies and substitutions of God’s TRUTH (Revelation 22:11-15)! God’s Holy Days are meant for Christians to ENJOY! They truly are FEAST DAYS, meant to be enjoyed by God’s elect everywhere, throughout time, FOREVER!!!

If you have never faithfully kept God’s seventh day Sabbath holy or God’s Holy Days, the way Jesus Christ did – in the flesh, and in the fellowship of other followers of the Son of Man; we invite you to obediently enter into God’s rest today, and to keep the Feasts of the LORD (Hebrews 4:1-11 / Leviticus 23:1-44)! Contact us to find out where we fellowship and worship God, in your area, on His Sabbath Days (Exodus 31:12-18). We would love to hear from you and help get you started! :o)

”But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one” (John 10:26-30).

Christians must learn to read the Bible, interpret the scriptures according to Biblical principles (Isaiah 28:9-10, / Matthew 13:52), and begin to apply the precepts they learn in their walk with God. Individual study is essential; coupled with fellowship times of group study, worship, and discussions of personal insights and observations.

We strive, each Saturday, to foster an open and welcoming atmosphere where Spirit led confirmation, clarification, questions, and correction can be made in the fellowship of other students of God’s Word.

One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us) is working to unify the body of Christ in the worship of God the Father, in the way Jesus showed us to - in Spirit and in Truth! We strive to promote rediscovery of American History, and renew in current generations the Vision and the Covenant of our Founding Fathers.

“And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease… And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.  Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat”                     – Jesus Christ (Matthew 10:1, 7-10).
