File 8 of 8 ... End of Part 1
Millions of genuine believers know little or nothing about the
Sacred Calendar. But you are not amongst them; because now
you know! This booklet has introduced you to spiritual
specifications and truths of awesome significance. You now know
the following facts:
- That the sacred calendar forms the basis of the Almighty's
Diary; the diary in which He has appointed certain days, seasons
and years to perform His mightiest acts in the Programme
of Salvation. He calls these appointed days His Sabbaths, His
Feast days. (Lev.23:2)
- That Bible prophecy tells us that at the 'time of the
end,' the time just prior to the return of Jesus Christ,
there would be signs in the sun, moon and stars;
and that these signs will coincide with the Feast Days in the
sacred calendar. (Joel 2:31, Joel 3:15, Amos 8:9, Matt.24:29,
- That the Time Prophecies of Daniel & Revelation are
directly linked to the Feast Days in the sacred calendar:
and that these prophecies would be fulfilled at the time
of the end, which is now upon us. (See Appendix
C for examples of these counts.)
- That the nation of Israel is still Yahweh's chosen people;
a people which has been brought back to the land of Israel to
be purified as silver and that believers in Yeshua the Messiah
(Jesus Christ) are grafted into the Olive of Israel.
- That Yahweh's Law constitutes His Seal; and His weekly
and annual Sabbaths constitute His Signature - His Sign.
In other words, Yahweh seals and signs His people with
obedience - with holiness.
- That the soon-coming Antichrist will govern the whole
world for a period of 3.5 years during which time he will
compel all nations to receive his Mark, the mark of disobedience
- the signature of sin.
- That the Saviour's millennial reign is also an appointed
part of the sacred calendar; a sabbatical thousand years
of world-wide peace and righteousness, when all the nations of
the world will learn to obey the Law of the Almighty God of Abraham,
Isaac and Israel.
- That the millennium will be followed by the creation of
a New Universe where the redeemed will dwell for eternity.
These facts you now know. Most importantly, this booklet has
presented you with a challenge you will never forget and must
not ignore. That challenge is to put your faith into action;
to demonstrate that you trust and love the Almighty enough to
keep His commandments. To be sure, the first step towards
salvation is to put your faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God
and accept him as your personal Saviour from sin. Your second
step is also vitally important. It is to obey the Almighty's
commandments. Your obedience will prove that your faith is
alive; that you have truly repented of past sins and now
want to obey your heavenly Father. That is the challenge you
now face; and there is no way you can lightly dismiss it, or even
forget it. It is, perhaps, the greatest challenge you have ever
faced in your life. If you meet it with living faith in the
Saviour and begin to keep Yahweh's sacred appointments, His weekly
and annual Sabbaths, you will be greatly blessed, in this world,
during the millennium and throughout the endless ages of eternity.
We will not even contemplate the results of wilful disobedience,
because that course is certainly not for you. Instead,
we will pray, that Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel, will grant
you His Spirit to trust and obey Him.
