BIBLE STUDY: Jesus Christ And The Day of Pentecost (Part Two)

Jesus Christ uses the Feast of Pentecost to show us who we are (1 Peter 2:9-10), and remind us each year, of the jobs He has chosen for us in the very near future (James 1:18 / Matthew 6:10 / Revelation 20:4-6 / 2 Timothy 2:10-12 / Revelation 5:1-10)!

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).

If you were with us yesterday, on the seventh Sabbath after Frist Fruits, you would know that today is a very special day. Today is the Biblical Feast of First Fruits, or the Feast of Weeks as it was called in the Old Testament; but most people know it today by its Greek New Testament Name, The Feast of Pentecost, which literally means to “count fifty” (“Pente” means 50 in the Greek language, and “cost” is count; so Pentecost literally means “50 count”! Leviticus 23:15-22).

On Pentecost we are commanded to count 50 days from the morrow after (or the day after) the Sabbath which occurs in the Days of Unleavened Bread. This Sabbath day, which we use as our starting point in our 50 day count, was the day that the wave sheaf which typified the Risen Christ, was waved or presented to God (Leviticus 23:9-12). The first spring harvest was NOT to be eaten UNTIL 1) the sheaf was waved before God and accepted, and 2) each person or household brought an offering before God on this day (Leviticus 23:12-14). Now Since A.D. 31, Jesus Christ has been that wave sheaf and that offering (a lamb without blemish! John 1:29). So today, when we keep and count Pentecost, we merely count from the Sabbath Day on which Christ rose from his tomb, 50 days, or 7 more Sabbaths and on the morrow after (49 days plus 1); in order to correctly derive the exact day!

What Almost No One Understands:

Seven is God’s number of completeness. The 7th day is the Sabbath unto the LORD; and the 7th Millennium from Creation will be the Day of the LORD (beginning at the Return of Jesus Christ), just like the Sabbath is also the weekly day of the LORD! Christ is LORD of the Sabbath – making it His Day! We are commanded to count exactly 7 weeks beginning on a particular day, or from the “morrow after the Sabbath” or from a Sunday, which is the day of the Wave Sheaf presentation during the Days of Unleavened Bread. Remember that the wave sheaf was cut from the ground in the late afternoon of Sabbath, before the sun set; this was the exact time Christ was rising from His tomb, or about 4:00 pm on Sabbath, three days and three nights from when He was laid to rest. www.onug.us

This is also why today’s Feast Day uses or is called by three different names: Pentecost (to count 50), First Fruits (because the Church is the first fruits of God’s Salvation, and The Feast of Weeks (because we count 7 weeks or 7 Sabbaths).

Today is the day that the Church Jesus Christ built was founded, exactly 1,986 years ago from right now – on Pentecost (2017-31=1986)! Today is not only a Holy Day, it is also the Anniversary of The Church of God!!! www.onug.us

So let’s make sure we know how to count to 50 today, and prove it so by Scripture alone (1 Thessalonians 5:21). From the new moon in Aviv (the first visible sliver of the moon, in the first month of spring, we count 14 days until Passover

              

Passover occurred in 2017 A.D., at sunset, on 09 April, when we celebrated the Night To Be Much Observed, or The LORD’s Passover. Passover was from Sunday night until Monday night at sundown, when the 14th day of Aviv became the Biblical 15th day of Aviv; or the First Day of Unleavened Bread Holy Day (Monday night at sundown until Tuesday night at sundown). Therefore, Saturday 15 April 2017 of this year, was the Sabbath which occurred during the Days of Unleavened Bread. Sabbath, 15 April was First Fruits when Christ conquered death at 4:00 pm, by rising from his tomb (Matthew 28:1-10). www.onug.us

Now we count FROM the day after this Sabbath, 50 days (from 16 April) or 7 Sabbaths AND 1 extra day (the morrow after that Sabbath). Let’s use the calendar below to see if this works out in reality, and correctly place Pentecost this year on Sunday, 04 June 2017. Let’s Count to 50! Either way we count, by Sabbaths or by days, Pentecost is correctly figured to 12 June 2016!!!

Proving That We Are The People of God:

Jesus told us He would lead The Way; that He would select His Sheep, train them up and send them into the world to TEACH ALL NATIONS HIS TRUTH –This Truth (Matthew 28:18-20 / Mark 16:15-20).

But Jesus also told us that He would “Go Before Them”, or set the example and pave that Way by Personal Example. Jesus told us that His Sheep would Follow ONLY His Example, and KNOW and LISTEN to ONLY His Voice (John 10:4-5, 14). You can Prove that you are in Christ’s fold of sheep, when we listen to and follow the Master’s Voice (John 10:16 / Exodus 31:12-18). Pentecost is a yearly reminder and proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Sheep know who laid down His Life for us, when He laid it down, and WHEN He took His Life back. The same Shepherd that had Power to take back His Life from death, is going to take back our lives from death, in EXACTLY the SAME WAY - at His Return (John 10:17-18, 14:1-21). Keeping Pentecost each year proves that WE LOVE JESUS CHRIST, and is the guarantee on Christ’s Promise that 1) Jesus will return to quicken us from the dead, to have us rule with Him, and 2) the Father will eventually return to this earth to dwell forever with Christ, and us (John 14:23-24, 28-29)!

Christians (followers or imitators of everything Jesus did) who obediently keep God’s Holy Days, just like Jesus did; have a much different view of God’s Plan than those who disobediently reject God’s Feasts (1 John 2:5-6 / 1 Corinthians 11: 1-3 / John 6:64-71 / Deuteronomy 9:24, 10:16 / 2 Peter 2:1-8).

"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)!

All of mankind will one day keep ALL of God’s Holy Days on this very earth (Matthew 5:5 / Zechariah 14:16-19 / Isaiah 66:23-24). If God is calling you to follow His Son, shouldn’t you imitate Christ in EVERY way, and walk as He walked (Matthew 11:29-30 /John 13:15, 15:4-5, 10 / 1 John 3:24, 4:17 / 1 Peter 2:21-25 / James 2:20-24)?

“O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!” (Deuteronomy 5:29)

Paul, formerly the Pharisee Saul, was one of the most highly educated, pedigree religious leaders of his day (Philippians 3:4-6); yet he discarded all of what his man-made religious traditions counted as valuable, viewing all of it as “dung”, in order to be an imitator of Christ and qualify for the First Resurrection of the dead (Philippians 3:7-11)!

Paul knew he couldn’t earn his righteousness in Christ through the law (:9), which he kept perfectly (:6); yet he did not discard God’s Holy Days or God’s Law, and taught other men (even pagan converts to Christianity) to keep God’s Feast Days, as Jesus himself commanded His disciples to keep them, and teach them – forever (1 Corinthians 11:1-3, 23-32 / Matthew 28:18-20).

Paul knew that we must be imitators of Christ – at all costs – and in every way (Philippians 3:11)! He threw away everything that would hinder his ability to make it into God’s kingdom as part of the church of the First Fruits! Yet he still kept, and taught others to keep, God’s eternal Word and Ordinances of Holy Day observance! He knew that he could not slack off, even a little bit (Philippians 3:12-15)! www.onug.us

Are you willing to forsake all to follow Christ, as Paul did? Are you willing to forsake the pagan Sun Day, The Christ Mass, Ishtar or Easter? Those who keep pagan practices in order to worship God, will not come up in the first harvest or the First Resurrection (Deuteronomy 12:28-32 / Revelation 22:14-15, 21:7-8, 27). We should be walking AFTER Christ, in His footsteps, keeping His ordinances and Commandments; marking those, and steering clear of them, who teach the Saints to do otherwise (Philippians 3:16-21 / Luke 6:46-49 / Colossians 3:1-5 / Galatians 6:7-10)!

We provide God’s Holy Day calendar, with correlation to our modern Gregorian calendar’s dates, to anyone who asks – with ALL of God’s Holy Days projected out for the next 10 years. Ask yourself, “How important it is to you, to reserve God’s Days, His Holy Days – right now, on your schedule; so that you never again steal another day from God again (Isaiah 58:13-14)?”    

                                                                        www.onug.us

 

We become what we repeatedly think about, we are what we repeatedly do (Proverbs 23:7 / Romans 2:13 / Jeremiah 11:6 / Matthew 7:21, 24 / John 13:15, 17 / James 1:22)!!!

Jesus said He will reject those He calls, who will not give up their personal interests and replace them with only God’s way of doing things (Luke 14:16-35 / Matthew 10:37-38)!!!

When we love God, we will demonstrate our love of God, by being OBEDIENT to God (John 14:15, 15:10)! It is impossible to love God without being obedient to Him (John 8:54-55 / 1 John 2:3-4)! It is impossible to serve both God and Satan at the same time (Matthew 6:24 / Luke 6:13). We must choose… and inaction after knowing the Truth is a definite decision (Revelation 3:20-22)!

The Bible shows us over and over again that God rewards us according to our obedience to Him. Although we are saved by GRACE (invited to participate in the marriage supper of the Lamb); we are rewarded (given a position of authority in God’s Eternal Kingdom) according to our works (Revelation 2:23, 20:12, 22:12 / Romans 2:6, 14:12 / 2 Corinthians 5:10)! God is very clear here: MANY who will want to participate in the marriage supper, WILL NOT be able to, due to their decision to do things their way, instead of how God clearly commands (Revelation 19:6-9 / Luke 13:18-30)!

God’s Plan is to freely offer salvation to all the people who have ever lived on the face of this earth (from the time of Adam until the last human is born of a woman) (see Hebrews 9:11-15, 23-28 / Revelation 22:16-17); but God will determine in what order, and when, we are called to hear and understand this message – in this life, or afterwards - when we come up in the Second Resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:41-42 / Matthew 13:11-17).

Pentecost: The Outpouring of the Holy Spirit!!!

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).

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).

How Do You Baptize 3,000 people in an afternoon?

First you start with ten Disciples, an hour and a half after the Resurrection, after sundown on Sabbath, and early on Sunday night (Matthew 28:1-10 / John 20:18-23); then you gather 120 more of the Church Leadership in Jerusalem, who were all previously Baptized by either Christ or His Apostles - in the same upper room that the Disciples kept Passover in, and where Jesus resided with His church during the last 40 days He was on earth after the Resurrection; in obedience to the Command of Christ to wait in Jerusalem until the Holy Spirit comes (Acts 1:1-26).

Note: these 120 had additional Hands-On, Specialize Training from none other than the Risen Jesus Christ, for 40 whole days after the Resurrection (Acts 1:3)! At this time in Biblical chronology, only the ten Disciples had God’s Holy Spirit; Thomas had not received it (John 20:18-23)!

The 120 Church Elders (no Spirit yet), along with the 10 Disciples (who have God’s Holy Spirit), and Thomas (who does not yet have The Spirit); these will be those men who will assist in Baptizing those Called in the massive church growth about to occur, in the afternoon of hours of Pentecost!!!

Then on Pentecost Morning, about 9 am, the Holy Spirit comes to Thomas and the 120 in the Upper Room (Acts 2:1-4)!!! This is the MORNING of the Day of Pentecost!!! Then they eat lunch! It’s a Feast Day, and God’s Children FEAST on His Holy Days!!! Time Frame: maybe 9-11 am? Lunch Time: maybe 11 am – 1 pm?

Notice, Acts 2:5-36 happens in the Temple AFTER LUNCH; (verses 5-6)! This sets the stage for Acts 2:37-41.

It would take maybe two hours for the stories of what happened in Acts 2:1-4 to circulate through Jerusalem! People would be gathering at the Temple in the afternoon to continue the Holy Day Worship, Studies, and Celebrations!!! Time Frame: maybe 1 pm – 3 pm for Peter to Preach Acts 2:5-36 to them!!!

Baptizing 3,000 people!!!

By the time Acts 2:41 happened, you would need to get 3,000 people out of the Temple and down to a river or lake to Baptize them in. This could easily take an hour, if the Disciples and 120 Elders split up and went in an organized fashion to different places where there was much water (John 3:23)! Time Frame: 3 pm- 4 pm.

If you take the 10 Disciples and now the 120 (to include Thomas) who now have God’s Holy Spirit after Acts 2:1-4; the you have potentially around 130 Apostles / Elders who can Baptize others! If it takes 5 minutes to Baptize each individual properly (3,000 divided by 130 = 23); it would mean each Church Leader would Baptize on average 23 people! 23 People x 5 minutes = 115 minutes; or each Church Leader could Baptize 23 people each under 2 hours!!! Time Frame: 4 pm – 6 pm. The whole operation of Baptizing 3,000 could be completed by sundown; thus exactly fulfilling Acts 2:41!!! www.onug.us

Note also, that some might have only been Baptized, without receiving The Holy Spirit; and could have had hands laid on them later, in order to receive the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:9-25); OR NOT, as was the case with Simon Magnus!!! Acts 2:5 tells us the 3,000 were devout men who understood the Wonderful Works of God (Acts 2:11); so giving them the Holy Spirit is not out of Acts 10:44-47 context!!!

For more about Water Baptism read our Bible Study on this subject at www.onug.us

Our personal opportunity to receive eternal life, is dependent upon our individual obedience to ALL the Teachings of God (2 Thessalonians 2:15 / Philippians 4:9 / 2 Timothy 3:14). But we cannot overcome unless we receive the gift of God’s Holy Spirit, first! We cannot obey God unless we have God’s Holy Spirit within us (Romans 8:1-8). www.onug.us

The annual Feast of Pentecost is all about those “few”, ordained and called by God; who find the strait, narrow gate, before the return of Jesus Christ (Matthew 7:13-14). Pentecost is about those who, through the power of the Holy Spirit, keep the Commandments of God, and are raised immortal, as kings and priests to rule with Christ, at His return (Romans 8:9-16).

Modern Era Christian teachings concerning the consequences of the behavior of believers in Christ, are for the most part – incorrect. The smooth, watered down “gospels” circulating in many churches today, are largely responsible for destroying the moral character of a great many members within our “Christian” churches; and are dangerously misleading! According to the actual words of Jesus Christ; Scripture cannot be violated without dire consequences (Matthew 7:15-29 / Exodus 31:12-18 / Deuteronomy 30:19-20 / Joshua 24:15 / Matthew 19:17, 21, 26, 28-30)!

------------------------------------------------------------

In Part One of this study: Jesus Christ And The Day of Pentecost: (Part One),

http://www.onug.us/content/bible-study-jesus-christ-and-day-pentecost-part-one

…we discussed how God’s seven annual Holy Days or Feast Days were centered around the two harvest seasons in the region of Judea.

The first harvest, a small one in the spring, was followed by the much larger main harvest which occurs in the fall.

We also showed you from your Bible, how these two Physical harvests, foreshadowed the two great harvests of mankind into the Kingdom of God established on this earth.

- The first harvest: Revelation 2:23, 14:1-16 / Matthew 13:1-53 / Revelation 20:1-6, Daniel 7:17-18, 21-22, 1 Corinthians 6:2-3, Acts 17:31 / Zechariah 14:1-5, 16-19 / Revelation 5:9-10.

- The second harvest: Daniel 7:10 / Revelation 20:5, 10-15 / Ezekiel 37:1-6, 24-28 / Isaiah 65:19-25, 17 / Revelation 21:1-7, 22:1-7, 12-21. www.onug.us

-------------------------------------------------------------

By now you should have begun to develop a pretty good understanding, from God’s Holy Word, The Bible; of what the Feast of Pentecost is all about (Colossians 1:26-29). It is an understanding that very few people in the world have! Those who reject God’s Holy Days, also reject without knowing it, the keys to understanding God’s Plan and timetable to save all of mankind from death and sin!

You now know, and have read for yourself, that the Bible speaks of two resurrections from the dead. You now know the Old Covenant, the Law, and The Holy Days have not been "done away with" as many have been told! Continue to read your Bible. Imitate the Biblical example of Jesus Christ, and walk as He Walked. You will not become a Pillar in the Temple unless you do (Revelation 3:5-13)!!!

Take the time today, on this annual Holy Feast Day of Pentecost, to consider what this day pictures. Consider its role in God’s Master Plan for humanity. Realize that you have been called by God, to prepare yourself to be in the First Harvest of mankind! What a tremendous Honor God bestows upon us! Realize that God, the Master Sower, wants to seed your mind with His Awesome Power (the Holy Spirit)! God has called you, NOW, to prepare yourself to rule with Christ for a thousand years, to bring God’s Government to this earth; and finally to help bring and teach the salvation message to EVERY HUMAN BEING who has ever lived – when they are resurrected in the Fall and Final Harvest: The Second Resurrection of the dead!

We will teach billions upon billions the Ways of God. Most will overcome sin, as we did; and then join us in the Eternal Kingdom of God! Realize this though; that most will be subjects, citizens, that most will be called least in the Kingdom of God – simply because they disobeyed God now, in this lifetime, as the first harvest is about to be reaped (Matthew 5:10-20 / Revelation 21:24, 3:12-13 / Psalm 119:172-176)!

Keeping God’s Law is the Narrow Path (Matthew 7:13-15 / 1 John 2:4-6 / Matthew 11:29 / John 13:15, 15:4-5, 10 / 1 Peter 2:21 / 1 John 3:24, 4:17). Not many are called to be Pillars in the Temple; even fewer accept Christ’s offer, and enroll in the Divine Challenge - to overcome and sit upon the throne that has been prepared for them since before the world was (Revelation 3:20-22 / Matthew 25:21 / Proverbs 14:35)!!! Can YOU hear Christ’s Voice calling you? I CAN!!!! www.onug.us

Thank you, LORD, for having such an AWESOME Plan to redeem all of mankind! Thank you, LORD, for revealing Your Plan, The Kingdom Plan, to me through Your Word and by Your Spirit! Thank you LORD, for offering me such a great part in your Kingdom Plan!

“… To all the saints in Christ Jesus… Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:1-6).

“Behold, what manner of LOVE the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God” (1 John 3:1)!!!

Because we have the Holy Spirit given to us, and CELEBRATE THAT GIFT, Each Year on Pentecost; We WILL COME UP IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD; AND LIVE AND RULE WITH CHRIST - FOREVER (1 John 3:1-4 / 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 / Revelation 5:10, 20:4-6)!!! Amen, Amen, Amen!!!    www.onug.us

May you and your family have a Blessed and Happy Feast of Pentecost!

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 (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.
