Monthly Letter - February 2008

28 February 08
 
Greetings Everyone,
 
In a few weeks spring will begin. To those who understand God’s Master Plan of Salvation, (If you have not received a copy of this article you may click the “Request Material” button below and receive a FREE copy) the spring season is an exciting, exhilarating time. As we see new life bursting forth through the plants and shrubs, so do those who have accepted the blood of Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, feel the excitement of having an opportunity to renew their covenant with God.
 
The scriptures say that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Rom. 3:23). And, knowing that “sin is the transgression of the law,” (I John 3:4) and that transgressing God’s law leads to death (Rom. 6:23) we can be ever appreciative of being able to partake of the bread and wine on Passover Evening. Remember, Christ said, “unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.” (John 6:53). For baptized members of The Church of God, Passover is NOT optional! It is a command, if you expect to be in The Kingdom of God. In fact, Passover is so important God makes it available one month later for those who miss it with legitimate reasons. (Numbers 9: 9-11).
 
Passover will be observed this year on April 18th, after sunset. This year Passover falls on Friday night. Many of you who have recently been added to our mailing list may not be familiar with Passover services as many of you have been conditioned to observe EASTER, as was I and millions of others. However, God does NOT command us to observe EASTER. It has its roots in a pagan holiday worshipping the ancient goddess, Astarte. (If you would like to know more about the subject of Easter send for our FREE DVD entitled, The Mystery of Easter.”). For a glimpse of how the heathen used to worship the goddess Astarte (Semaramis—the queen of heaven {Jer. 44: 17 ,25}) and her illegitimate son Tammuz, read the eighth chapter of the book of Ezekiel. God adamantly warned Israel NOT to learn the way of the heathen (Jer. 10: 1-3) but they refused to listen and rebelled against HIS instructions. Unfortunately, Satan the Devil has been able to clothe this abomination in God’s sight as “Christian” and has deceived the whole world into observing this pagan day. (Rev. 12:9).
 
I will be preparing a Passover message via DVD for those of you who will be observing the Passover on April 18th. You will be receiving several articles in our next Newsletter that will give you more instructions and guidance regarding this very Special Day in God’s Master Plan of Salvation. You should begin NOW preparing for The Passover.
 
However, God’s Plan does NOT end with the Passover. On the contrary, the Passover is only the beginning. Following the Passover, which was conducted on the 14th of Nisan, are the seven Days of Unleavened Bread. (Lev. 23: 1-8). This year the First Day of Unleavened Bread will be observed on April 20th and the Last Day of Unleavened Bread will be observed on April 26th. You will be receiving DVD’s with Holy Day messages for these two High Days. Mr. Joe Shuster will deliver the first day’s message and Mr. John Shelton will deliver the last day’s sermon. Prior to the first day you should have all leavening products and leavening agents removed from your premises. I hope you grasp the spiritual significance of the physical removing of leavening from your homes. Several articles in the upcoming Newsletter will expound on this concept.
 
Speaking of the Newsletter, I apologize for the extended length of time it took the last Newsletter to reach you. I mailed it during the Christmas holidays and I can only surmise that it got lost in the extraordinary amount of gifts, packages, and cards sent out during that time of year.
 
I mentioned in the Letter From The President section in the last Newsletter that the Holiday Inn has advised me that we would NOT be able to reserve a meeting room there IF we did not book at least twenty (20) rooms there. I have had very little response so far ,so I must press the issue here. If you would be willing to stay at the Holiday Inn South this year at a price of $65.00 + tax, please advise me on the enclosed card and return it to me as quickly as possible. I have to know as quickly as possible so I can locate an alternate site if the Holiday Inn is not available. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.
 
I would like to announce that the Cincinnati Church Group will be hosting a Special Week-end March 29th. I will be speaking there on the 29th and I have been advised that several other activities have been planned. Anyone that would like to attend is certainly welcome. If you would like to have more information, please contact Brian or Marty Tinkler at 513:893-2042 for details.
 
I was listening to the radio in my automobile recently and I heard a “learned theologian” explain that there would definitely NOT be a “time of Jacob’s trouble,” or tribulation as outlined in the Bible. He explained it away as relating to ancient Israel. Unfortunately, the identity of Israel has been hidden from mankind and because of this modern “Christians” do NOT understand many Biblical prophecies. They will be shocked when the actual fulfillment of prophecies relating to Israel will be fulfilled. If you have not ordered your copy of Mr. John Shelton’s DVD entitled, “The Blessings of Abraham Parts 1 & 2”, you should do so right away. If you have already sent for it, please DO NOT check the box.
 
Many of you have been faithful contributors to this WORK since its inception. Without you, we could not continue producing the DVD’s, CD’s, printing articles, maintaining a website, purchasing new equipment as needed and continually replace DVD’s, CD’s, ink cartridges, printing paper, envelopes, stamps, and other necessary supplies and materials. Thank you for your faithfulness to God’s WORK. We also would like to thank those who are first time contributors. Your contributions are much appreciated. Until next time, watch and pray always!
 
Sincerely,
 
George Trent
