I am looking forward to our upcoming Feast of Tabernacles Camp Meeting. The fellowship we shared when we had our Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread Camp Meeting earlier this year here in Australia, was so special – a taste of heaven on earth. We also enjoyed a weekend of fellowship in Brisbane around the Day of Pentecost. For both of these times, we enjoyed fellowship with brothers and sisters from our local area and those who came from quite far away. The joy of our fellowship included: singing hymns together; eating, talking or walking together; enjoying meetings where we explore topics we are learning more about; and the special times of foot washing and the communion services. There was a general feeling at the end of the camp / weekend that it would be good to stay in this mode of fellowship and not leave to go home – one day this will be a reality, in the great Feast of Tabernacles in Heaven.
What are the Covenants in Scripture?
Gal 4:22-24 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. (23) But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. (24) Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
The two covenants are revealed in the life of Abraham. The Old Covenants are promises TO God and the New Covenants is promises BY God.

Early American Christians turned to the Bible and found not only themselves in prophecy but the begotten Son everywhere they looked. The Advent Movement, following its bitter-sweet birth in reading Daniel 8:14, became grounded on two Scriptures: 1Corinthians 8:6 and John 5:6.

The Sabbath is made for man. An appointed time to receive a special blessing. The Sabbath is the great source of special times that God grants to His children to receive a blessing they would not otherwise receive. The Lord of the Sabbath reaches out to us through all His appointed times and wishes to give us a special hug when we come to Him when He calls. Clothed in the Sun and standing on the Moon we can hear our Saviour's voice and swim in His tide of love. In this presentation consider yourself personally invited.

How should we respond to a leader or leaders who are doing the wrong thing or who have fallen into apostasy. What does the Divine tell us about how we should handle these things?

Satan has long been preparing for his final effort to deceive the world. The foundation of his work was laid by the assurance given to Eve in Eden: "Ye shall not surely die." "In the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Genesis 3:4, 5. Little by little he has prepared the way for his masterpiece of deception in the development of spiritualism. He has not yet reached the full accomplishment of his designs; but it will be reached in the last remnant of time. GC 561.
Paul preached only “Christ, and him crucified.” This he preached wherever he went. And wherever he went, he preached Christ crucified among the people in that place. That is, when he was in Galatia, he preached not only Christ crucified down in Judea, but also in Galatia. When he was in Corinth, he preached not only Christ crucified away over at Jerusalem, but also Christ crucified there in Corinth.
In other words, Christ crucified at Jerusalem in Judea, was also Christ crucified wherever there is a man on the earth. And the preaching of Christ crucified at Jerusalem in Judea, to be the true preaching of that fact must be also the preaching of Christ crucified wherever the fact is preached. It is simply the preaching of the universal and ever-present Christ the Saviour.
I had the opportunity recently to read the booklet Living Bread from Heaven by Adrian Ebens, and found an amazing blessing in understanding for the first time the connection of the blessings represented in the offerings of the sacrificial or ceremonial system and the blessings our heavenly Father bestows to His children through His only begotten Son and His sacrifice; this blessings expand and deepen throughout the year as we partake of our Father’s Holy convocations: daily, Sabbath, monthly, yearly (first and seventh month convocations); and if we follow this cascading Sabbath fountain all through the year, we will be immersing ourselves in the river of life that deepens every 1000 cubits.
The war in heaven began regarding the statutes and judgements of God and this war will finish on this earth over the same question. The appointments of Christ including the Sabbath, New Moon and Feasts are the channel by which His Spirit flows to His people. In order to stop this Spirit coming to earth Satan seeks to change times and laws and bring the people to his spirit in order to give them his mark of authority.
Let us stand on the moon and be clothed in the Sun that we might be blessed through glorious treasury of rest found in Christ. Those who seek the extra virgin oil through the midnight cry given by Samuel Snow will enrage the churches and the nominal Adventists. In that midnight cry given by Snow was the correct calendar for the people of God to know their God who does sanctify them.
Will you heed the call to come into the Sabbath more fully that the Holy Spirit will fall upon us in greater measure? For those who have ears, I urge you to listen to what the Spirit says unto the churches.
I have been putting this study on hold for some time now but eventually I felt compelled to do a study on ‘’the daily” in Daniel, particularly chapter 8 verse 11
Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
