BIBLE STUDY: Discovering The Secret Treasures Of Fall

Did You Know Every Fall, God Shows Us All Something Spectacular? But Have You Ever Seen It? It is NOT the changing of the weather, or the color of the leaves – as wonderful as that is! There is a secret treasure hidden inside the pages of your Bible; one that Jesus said He only shows to those He calls His Disciples (Matthew 13:10-43 / Daniel 12:1-13 / Matthew 13:44-52). Did YOU “See” it? Did YOU understand the “Secret”? Did YOU, as Christ asked His Disciples, “Understand ALL these things?” Well, today – in this Bible Study, YOU are going to!!!

It can be like finding a needle in a hay stack, or like finding a diamond in a sea of broken crystal; unless God shows you just where to look, and unless God shows you what to look for; you will not be able to find it! God the Father gave us four beautiful diamonds for us to enjoy each fall; but Satan came along and dumped a tractor trailer load of cubic zirconia and broken crystal on top of them – just so MOST wouldn’t be able to find the Real Diamonds inside that sea of glass!

Today we are going to look at just 1/6th of the pile of fake diamonds (or holidays) that Satan dumps on us each year, and see if we can recognize any of God’s True Gemstones beaming out to us, from within that pile of decoys:

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).

Days can be like diamonds, and many people cannot tell them apart! You can ask us for God’s Holy Day Calendar; then you will have a great key to help you open up and understand the Appointed Times of The Lord’s Feasts (Matthew 13:11)!!!

Seeing Isn’t Always Believing!

Many people don’t understand the difference between cubic zirconia (CZ), man-made diamonds, and natural diamonds that were created by God almost 6,000 years ago. Both CZ and man-made diamonds are produced in laboratories. CZ is zirconium dioxide with a hardness rating of 8 on Mohs scale. Man-made diamonds (also known as synthetic, created, or cultured diamonds) have a hardness rating of 10 (just like natural diamonds). The Mohs scale, created by German geologist Friedrich Mohs, in 1812, was a more modern reinvention of an ancient system used to measure the hardness of any item. It is an ordinal scale; in that something with a rating of 8, would be half as hard as something rated at 9 (or 9 would be twice as hard as an 8); a 10 is four times harder than a 9, etc. Using a scale such as this allows us to measure what surface will scratch the surface of another item (on the Mohs scale: graphite pencil = 1.5, a human fingernail=2.5, a copper penny=3.5, a steak knife=5.5, a porcelain dinner plate=7.0, etc).

There is no substitute for the Real Thing!

CZ can be hand-cut to mimic the look of the finest-cut natural diamonds, and can fool most casual observers. Over time, a CZ can become cloudy or milky. In the long run, it is evident you didn’t purchase the real thing, you settled for a counterfeit (2 Corinthians 11:3-4 / Revelation 3:14-22)!

- A D-color, VS2 clarity natural round diamond can cost $6,000.

- A man-made diamond in the same size and shape is $3,800.

-An identical designer CZ costs less than $200.

God does not accept imitation gem stones (Exodus 20:22-25, 7:9-13 / Deuteronomy 12:1-14, 28-32); and neither should we! God says that we are to worship Him, “How” He says, “Where” He says, and “When” He says; and NOT in “every place that thou seest”, or wherever and whenever we would like to!!! This alone, if understood by the world, would put most churches out of business; as well as most retail merchants, and most greeting card companies too (Matthew 24:23-25, 29-31)!

Just like the Jews of Jesus’ time, many Christians today still can’t see, or understand, what God does every single Fall Season! Then again, many don’t want to know! Do you? Join us today, as we rediscover an ancient Secret Treasure, hidden away by God, in every Fall Season. Let us seek to recognize God’s Wisdom, and examine the clues to find this Holy Treasure, which is preserved for us - within the pages of your very own Bible (Proverbs 3:13-26)! Wealth and Safety; Peace and Wisdom come from discovering God’s Treasure!!!

So Let’s Go Treasure Hunting!!!

Acres of Diamonds!

One of my favorite stories, which I first heard told by Earl C. Nightingale (1907-1976), when I was just a teenager; is “Acres of Diamonds”. Earl was a tremendous motivational speaker, with a great voice; one that I would often listen to for hours! But more importantly for me, was the fact that Earl was a Corporal in U.S. Marine Corps during World War II; and was one of only 15 Marines that survived the bombing and sinking of the U.S.S. Arizona, during the Japanese attack of Pearl Harbor, on the morning of December 7th, 1941! Earl was a battle hardened warrior, and he was full of wisdom too; he had everything needed to impress this young man! I can still remember the sound of his voice and the value of his words after first hearing him more than 37 years ago!

I remember hearing Earl speak of how he had once read an inspirational lecture, given by the founder of Temple University, Doctor Russell Herman Conwell (1843-1925). Conwell wrote that he was intrigued by a true story, which came as most good tales do - with an ageless moral attached to it. Conwell knew that he had to pass this story on to the next generation, and so he put it into what would become one of his most famous lectures. Here now, as best I can recall (more or less) is the story of “Acres of Diamonds”…

In 1866, there was a farmer who lived in South Africa and, through a visitor, became tremendously excited about looking for diamonds. Diamonds had already been discovered in some abundance on the African continent. This farmer had gotten so excited about the idea of finding millions of dollars in diamonds; that he sold his farm for mere pennies on the dollar, and headed out to strike it rich - by discovering his very own diamond mine!

The man wandered all over the African continent for many years, constantly searching for, but never finding these elusive diamonds. He finally awoke one morning, completely broke – both mentally and financially, and in a fit of depression, threw himself into a river, and drowned.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch (or rather, at the farm he’d sold), the new owner had walked across a small bridge that crossed over one of the many small streams on the farm. Noticing a glimmer of colored light sparkling from the water, he bent down and fished out an unusual looking rock about the size of a country egg. He put the weird crystal on his mantle above the fireplace, as a sort of curiosity and conversation piece.

Not long afterwards, the same visitor who had brought the story of diamonds to the previous owner; came by for another visit and noticed the rock sitting upon the mantle. “Where did you find this thing?” the visitor asked. “This has to be one of the biggest diamonds ever found!”

The new owner replied, “I found it out back; but it can’t be a diamond! It must be some sort of crystal. My streams are full of them. There must be hundreds, even thousands of them out there!”

But it was a diamond and a big one too! This obscure farm would soon become the “New Rush Mine”, which was later renamed the “Kimberly Diamond Mine”, in South Africa… the richest diamond mine the world has ever known!!! From 1871-1914 over 50,000 miners would dig a 42 acre hole on this spot, 463 meters wide, 240 meters deep; and would remove over 2,722 kilograms (or over 6,000 pounds) of diamonds!!!

The original owner of the farm, had literally been standing on his own “acres of diamonds”; but he had sold the farm, and his opportunity for tremendous wealth – and eventually committed suicide… all because he had never taken the time to first educate himself on what a real diamond looks like!!! Do you know what God’s Diamonds, and what His Treasure, look like? Would you be able to recognize God’s Genuine Article, even if it was right in front of your nose? Sadly, even many credentialed theologians today cannot – simply because they look to the world for their education, instead of the Creator God of the Bible!!! How Sad!!!

Earl, in telling Dr. Conwell’s story, likened each of us who hear this tale, to the first owner of the farm. Scripture says the same thing (Matthew 6:33 / Haggai 2:1-9 / Zechariah 14:1 / Psalm 50:1-23 / Philippians 4:13, 19-20 / Job 12:7-25). God is going to bring an eternal Kingdom to this earth very soon; one of tremendous, Power, Riches, and Glory. Those who take the time, now, to learn what will be valuable in God’s Kingdom tomorrow; and those who embrace the Spiritual Wisdom and Spiritual Treasures which God gives to us in this world - today; they will be those God calls “Saints”, and those whom God will gather together into His Holy City - the heavens declaring our righteousness before a Holy God (Psalm 50:5-6, 119:158-176)!

Each of us, with a Bible in Hand, is really right in the middle of his or her own acres of diamonds - if only we have enough sense to realize it! We should ask God to show us how to develop the ground we’re standing on right now, before we go charging off and looking for greener pastures elsewhere (Psalm 23:1-6 / John 10:1-5)!!! Sadly, many have not; and many will not, listen to this sage-like wisdom and advice!!!

When prospecting for gold in the Holy Scriptures, if we want to discover any gold at all; it is extremely important we mimic everything Jesus Christ said and did, and not set off to do it our own way. Otherwise we will only find “Fool’s Gold”, which is not worth anything at all (2 Timothy 3:7-9)!

Opportunity doesn’t just “come along” as most people think. It’s there all the time - we just have to be able to see it! Jesus Christ is the ONLY door to eternal life and the Father’s Good Treasure (John 10:7-11). Our job as the Called-Out Ones, or those sanctified by Christ in this world, is to go out and call other lost sheep back into the fold (Matthew 5:13-14). We must be speaking with Christ Word’s to be His Voice; they in turn must follow us, and enter in through “The Door” (John 10:16). You cannot just call any stone a diamond, and make it so – if you do you are a “liar”; and you cannot just make your own entrance into God’s Kingdom, if you do – Jesus calls you a “thief” and a “robber” (John 10:1-5 / Revelation 22:14-15, 21:7-8)!

God’s Kingdom is Coming Soon to this earth; by The Very Hand of Jesus Christ (Daniel 2:31-35)! That Massive Boulder will completely destroy all of man’s governments around the world; that Stone cut without hands, is HARDER than anything else on the Mohs Scale (1 Peter 2:1-6)!!! It’s going to be the HARDEST THING ON PLANET EARTH!!!

God’s Holy Days Are The Most Precious Stones One Can Find!!!

The WORD of God is God’s Truth given to mankind (Psalm 119:160 / Daniel 10:21 / Ephesians 1:13-14 / James 1:18 / Job 34:12 / Psalm 25:5, 43:3, 86:11)! Do you really want God to teach YOU His Ways (Matthew 11:28-30)? We can ONLY come to God when we obediently submit to His Yoke, and take His Rest (His Sabbaths) upon us; ONLY THEN do we Truly LEARN, and ONLY THEN do we Truly GROW in the Knowledge of God, and of our True Potential within His Eternal Kingdom!!!

The SABBATHS OF GOD are His TEST of our Obedience to Him and to His Son (Exodus 31:12-14). They are the very MINIMUM requirements for entering the Kingdom of God at Christ’s Return (Revelation 22:14)!!! Each year, as you stay within God’s Church, He will change the test each year; teaching you new things every Sabbath and every Holy Day; God will try you and refine you, at a deeper level each year, in every area where He needs you to produce Growth and Fruit!!! God will add depth to your understanding of Him and His Ways, as you yield in obedience to what He is showing you and teaching you!!!

Let’s Take The Test (Matthew 7:13-14)!

Ask yourself, since God has called you into His Body; “Have YOU kept ALL 52 Weekly Sabbaths as Commanded by Christ, each year?” “Have YOU kept ALL Seven Annual Holy Days as Commanded by Christ (Isaiah 58:13-14)?” Have YOU Robbed God in time and money; or have YOU been faithful in tithing on the income God has Blessed you with, and appeared before Him on each High Holy Day with an Offering according to how much God has Blessed You (Malachi 3:6-12)?” God is specific that all the tithes (simply a tenth of your income), and all of your offerings (in addition to your tithes, God requires you to demonstrate, in a monetary fashion, by “gift” or by “offering”, How YOU think God has Blessed YOU since you attended the previous Holy Day! See Mark 12:41-42 / Luke 21:1-4); these BOTH must be brought into the storehouse (which means that your attendance is very necessary, in addition to your money, to properly Honor God; and so that His Body or His Congregation of Saints can provide “Meat” - or the Word of God, in His House!!!

These lessons of obedience, or of God testing us with our Time and our Money; these lessons grow more and more complex, as does our Reward and our Understanding grows deeper – each Sabbath after Sabbath, and each Holy Day after Holy Day!

I have watched many brethren fall away from God’s Church over the years, and I have watched them become more and more deceived by the world; their hearts growing cold in direct proportion to their waning attendance at Holy Days and Sabbaths, and in direct proportion to their embezzlement of tithes and offerings which God had intended for their continued Growth and Blessing! If you are a veteran of God’s True church for any number of years, you have probably seen this with your very own eyes! When God tells you to test or prove Him with something (Malachi 3:10) intended to bring a Blessing upon you, and you fail to do it; you not only miss out on that Blessing – you are also in store for a Curse from God Himself (Malachi 3:9)!

The Judgment on Ananias and Sapphira:

My wife’s father passed away three years ago this past July, and because he lived overseas, it has taken a few years to finally sell his house and liquidate his estate. Last year, we were informed of our cash settlement abroad, just before The Holy Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:26-32). Do you the TEST my wife and I were given before God? Would we be obedient to God with our finances? Did we know the real life story of Ananias and Sapphira? Oh yes we did (Acts 5:1-11)! And so, on the very next banking business day, we called an overseas bank, and we had twenty percent of the total amount we inherited, transferred to a U.S. bank account. This allowed us to tithe on the first ten percent to God’s Church; and to put the second ten percent into our Feast Fund (or our Second Tithe Account) for The Feast of Tabernacles! Then on the Holy Day of Atonement, we prayerfully considered the windfall God has Bestowed upon us, as we presented our Holy Day Offering to God!!! www.onug.us

Ask yourself, “What are God’s Precious Jewels worth to YOU?”

  • Is the Sabbath the MOST important thing you observe each week?
  • Do you modify your annual calendar around God’s calendar; or does God really take second place in your life?
  • When you complete your tax return each year, can you really show that you donated ten percent of your pay to your local church as required to by God?
  • When you compare the amount you give each year in Holy Day Offerings to the Blessings you have received from the LORD; do YOU measure up before Him? Just what is a healthy baby or grandchild being born to you worth? How did you communicate to God the promotion your received, the healing you received, the restoration of relationships in your life, or the spiritual fruits you developed this year, the knowledge of the Kingdom of Heaven you received, or the joy you received by Iron sharpening Iron during times of Fellowshipping with God’s true Saints???

Sadly, many in God’s Church take without giving; they DO NOT understand their dividends are compounding interest in Heaven and NOT on earth; their lack of generosity to God on the physical plane, WILL be reconciled by the Master Accountant upon His arrival in the clouds with Great Glory (Matthew 6:19-21)! Are YOU Obedient to God with your TIME and with your MONEY? It is a very telling test; with very real and eternal consequences (Malachi 3:6-12)!!!

Now the above questions are for YOU to ponder and answer before God; NOT HERE (Proverbs 15:28)! Keeping God’s Sabbath or some of them; attending Holy Days when it suits your schedule and being conspicuously absent when it does not; will allow you access to partial knowledge of the Kingdom, and partial growth as a Saint – but it will leave you lacking when YOU must give an account before Christ (Matthew 25:14-30)!!! When you assemble before God on Sabbath and on the Holy Days, YOU are being entrusted with TREMENDOUS TRUTHS and TREMENDOUS RESPONSIBILITIES; don’t oppose yourself by taking one step forward, and then one step backwards – run the race to win (2 Timothy 2:19-26)! Those who do not contribute to the growth of the Body, will either be lead into repentance unto obedience; or God will remove them from His Body, after He has weighed their hearts and found them lacking. May this not be said of us (Matthew 25: 14-30 / 1 John 2:19)!!!

Is Christ really the absolute and supreme authority in YOUR life? If He is, then we should do as David said: “I will walk in thy Truth; unite my heart to fear Thy Name!” (Psalm 86:11). If Christ shows you His Way, His Truth, His Plan; are you prepared to renounce your former beliefs and go against almost everything you ever knew, thought, and believed about God? For most, the honest answer is “NO!!!”

We are puny little flesh and blood humans, living in a sinful world totally deceived by the most powerful angel there ever was: Lucifer the Light Bringer! Almost everything most people on this world grow up to believe as truth, is in fact, total and complete deception from Satan and his demons (Revelation 12:9). But if Jesus is really telling us the Truth, that He came to shine Light into the darkness, and that the darkness (this world, and all of us in it), just couldn’t understand it, or comprehend it (John 1:1-5, 9-10); if that is the Truth (John 1:17-18); then most of this world still cannot “get it” or understand it, because Satan is still very much in control of deceiving this whole world – right up and until, Jesus comes back to deal with this fallen angel Himself!

But Jesus did come to begin to unveil the Truth, His Word, His Way, His Plan to a very small group He calls His Church or His Body (John 1:6-18)! Did you notice verses: 7 & 9? “That ALL men through Him might believe”, and also, “That was the TRUE LIGHT, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world”; If Jesus is The Word and THAT Word is TRUTH, how can ALL men through Jesus believe CORRECTLY – if most of the human population down through history, has lived and died in totally deception – apart from God’s Truth? How can God’s Word tell us that Christ “lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (or enlightens – or makes us to understand TRUTH), when in fact, most people from the time of Adam and Eve, right up through today – simply do not know who God is, or what God intends to do with you and I, and this world – in the very near future?

The Key to understanding the mysteries of God and His Plan is two-fold:

- First, you must be called by God and Chosen by Jesus (John 6:44, 14:6, 15:16 / Exodus 31:13, 16-17);

- Second, you must humble yourself and obey God’s Word to grow in understanding (John 15:15 / Psalm 111:10 /1 Peter 5:6 / James 4:10 / Philippians 4:6-9 / Deuteronomy 30:19-20 / Isaiah 58:13-14 / Leviticus 23:1-4)!

Only Obedient, Spirit filled humans, who are hand-picked by God, get the ability to understand The Plan, The Gospel, - until Jesus Returns to let ALL nations, and ALL people understand it (Matthew 11:25, 13:11 / Luke 10:21 / John 15:15 / Revelation 1:1-3 / Matthew 13:16-17)! God’s Fall Holy Days show us His Plan, they are His 4 Diamonds of TRUTH, in the seventh month of each year, to remind the obedient children of the Most High God, what their Father is planning to do very soon (Matthew 6:10)! That is exactly what we will spend God’s upcoming Feast of Trumpets (observed sundown 02 October – sundown 03 October 2016) studying too!!!

The Four Secret Treasures or Diamonds of the Fall Season:

1) The Feast of Trumpets – also known as Rosh HaShana to most (but this is a Jewish civil new year, and NOT a holy time!); Yom Teruah is the correct translation for Feast of Trumpets! This is a commanded Feast Day to be kept on the first day of the seventh month of God’s calendar. It was observed this year (2016) from sundown September 02 October until sundown 03 October 2016 by God’s people (Exodus 31:13, 16-17). Keeping this Holy Day and knowing its related Scriptures (meat in due season) teach God’s People each year - How and When Jesus Christ will Return to this earth, and what Jesus will do upon His becoming King over the whole earth!!! This is also the time of the First Resurrection – a spiritual resurrection, where the first Sons of God will be “born again” as spirit eternal beings (Romans 8:18-19, 22-39 / Hebrews 11:13, 39-40 / John 3:5-8 / Revelation 20:6, 5:9-10)!

2) The Day of Atonement – also known as Yom Kippur, is a commanded Feast Day to be kept on the tenth day of the seventh month. It is observed this year from sundown 11 October until sundown 12 October 2016. This is a total fast day, meaning God’s People do without food or water for 24 hours. Keeping this Holy Day the way Christ instructed us to, pictures the banishment of Satan during the thousand year Millennial Reign of Christ, and his promised eternal imprisonment in the Lake of Fire, along with all of his fellow fallen angels (Leviticus 23:26-32).

3) The Feast of Tabernacles – also known as the First Day of Sukkot, is a commanded Feast Day to be kept on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, and is kept for seven days, at the place God’s Minister is led to place God’s Name (Deuteronomy 14:22-26)! During this time, God’s people are commanded to live in temporary dwellings (also booths or tabernacles); they also keep a second tithe or tenth of their income to be used during this period of time. Keeping this Feast for seven days pictures the thousand year Sabbath Rest the earth will enjoy under Jesus Christ, and our release from the bondage of Satan and sin, and the penalties they exact. The world will once again become a tropical paradise; a Garden of Eden – worldwide, for those living upon the earth during this time (Leviticus 23:33-44)! The majority of the world’s population, actually physical and biological descendants of Father Abraham (Galatians 3:29), now think they are Gentiles simply because their fathers or their father’s father stopped teaching their children to keep this Feast of God (Proverbs 22:6)! This year The Feast of Tabernacles begins at sundown, 16 October 2016, and goes through sundown, 23 October 2016, wherever you live on God’s Green earth!!!     

4) The Last Great Day – also known as Shmini Atzeret (or the Eighth Day of Assembly), is a commanded Feast Day to be kept immediately after the seven days of The Feast of Tabernacles. This Great Holy Day pictures the resurrection back to living flesh of all people who have ever lived, throughout all of human history. It is also known as the Second Resurrection from the dead for all those who lived and died without ever knowing God’s Truth or possessing His Holy Spirit. This is the resurrection the two thieves on the cross will come up in, as will Lazarus and the rich man spoken of in Luke 16. God is going to give every human ever born, who was made in His image, a chance to enter into eternal life and live with Him forever! After the 100 years allocated for those who come up in the Second Resurrection, the earth will melt with tremendous heat and flames; and finally – what the world was made for will come to pass - God The Father will come down from heaven to live on a new spiritual Earth, forever with us (Ezekiel 37:12-14 / Revelation 21:3-4)! This year God’s People will celebrate and keep The Last Great Day from sundown, 23 October until sundown, 24 October 2016!

We invite you now to alter your schedules, and your plan to keep these Holy Days of God with us! Remember, it was ALWAYS on these days that Christ and the Apostles taught The Word of God and The Wisdom of God (Psalm 111:10 / John 13:12-20)!!! This world, and even most of Christianity will reject these days and not keep them. But a Holy God will also reject those who do not keep His Sign, or His Holy Days! Make no mistake; you will not enter into eternal life until after you learn to keep ALL of God’s Holy Days in obedience to Christ Jesus! That is why we so desperately need a Second Resurrection! God gives a tremendous Honor to those of us who are faithful in keeping these days before His Son returns! Won’t YOU be among them (Matthew 7:13-14)? www.onug.us

Most people alive today have never heard this Biblical Truth; and for many who have, they are so blinded by Satan’s false flavors of Christianity and other religions – they simply won’t believe it! But that doesn’t have to be you; YOU have a chance to learn the TRUTH, God’s Truth, and PROVE IT from the pages of your very own Bible (1 Thessalonians 5:21 / Isaiah 28:9-10 / Matthew 13:52)! We invite you to join us as we look at some remarkable Scriptures today and watch the Plan of God unfold!

God uses a lunar calendar, much different from the man-made ones most societies use today, to show us what days and seasons are important to God (Genesis 1:14-19). When God calls you out of spiritual darkness, He will always teach you His calendar, His days, and His Ways (John 15:14-16)! Jesus is extending His hand of friendship to you, right now! All you have to do is accept Him (Romans 10:9), acknowledge Him as Lord and Master over your life (Romans 10:10-15), follow Him (1 Corinthians 11:1 / Matthew 4:19-20, 10:38, 16:24-25 / Luke 14:27 / John 21:19, 22 / 1 Peter 2:21-22), obey him (Romans 10:16-17 / Matthew 4:4 / Luke 4:4 / John 21:15-17 / Matthew 28:19-20 / Mark 16:15-20 / Luke 6:46-49 / Malachi 1:6-8 / John 14:15, 21, 23, 15:10 / 1 John 2:3, 5:3 / 2 John 1:6), and learn from Him (Matthew 11: 25-30 / Isaiah 28:9-10 / 1 Thessalonians 5:21)!

The Truth of God is just the opposite from the deception and lies of Satan! Satan has turned God’s Truth up-side down! So if we are going to bring people out of ignorance to the Truth of God, and out of the long held deceptions given to them by Satan the devil; it is initially going to look like God’s Truth is up-side down, when in reality it is not! We are going to have to flip all your beliefs 180 degrees; so just hang on for a minute, and soon you will see that this new way, God’s Way, is really the way it was meant to be (Isaiah 5:20-23 / Acts 17:1-8, 11-34). Like the Greeks in Thessalonica, I ask you to hear about the resurrection, and of Christ, and to believe in the coming Kingdom of God!

The Kingdom of God will be established on the Earth (Psalm 21:1 / Isaiah 60:15 / Philippians 4:4 / Isaiah 11:1-16, 32:1 / Romans 8:13-27 / Isaiah 40:1-11, 44:21-28 / Ezekiel 44:23-24 / Daniel 2:36-45). Daniel was allowed to see the last four major kingdoms or governmental systems that would exist on the earth prior to Christ’s return. Most of what Daniel saw has already come to pass; only the Return of Jesus Christ remains to be fulfilled!

The four major empires that Daniel saw were:

1) The Chaldean – Babylonian Empire (625 to 538 B.C.)

2) The Medo – Persian Empire (538 to 330 B.C.)

3) The Greco – Macedonian Empire (333 to 31 B.C.)

4) The Roman Empire (31 B.C. to the present – existing in some form until Christ returns). Daniel 7:17-28 expounds even more.

5) The Return of Jesus Christ – and the establishment of The Kingdom of God on Earth FOREVER (Exodus 19:5-8 / 1 Peter 2:9-10, 12 / Hosea 4:6-10 / Matthew 24:21-22, 24, 27, 29-31 Revelation 5:10 / Matthew 5:5 / Revelation 20:4-6, 21:1-8, 22:14-16). www.onug.us

The Fall Holy Days (Trumpets, Atonement, Tabernacles, and The Last Great Day) are the Truth of God. They are kept by those who are obedient to God, and are rejected by all those whom Christ will reject at His Second Coming!!! (Matthew 7:13-14)!!!

The Fall 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 / Matthew 10:32-33 / Luke 12:8-9)!!! Now YOU Know what Confessing Christ really means (Exodus 31:13)!!!

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!

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! (239) 353 – 1303.

May we all Fear an uncompromising and Holy God’s soon-coming Judgment and Wrath on all sin and evil, may we all learn to Love God enough to Obey Him in all things, so that we may grow in knowledge and wisdom! May we all never forget, that only those who fear God, those who Love and Obey God enough to keep all His Commandments - The Way Jesus showed us to; it will be only those who learn how to Praise God, The Way Jesus did – and ONLY they will be Called to the marriage supper of the Lamb – as the Wise Virgins (Matthew 22:14)!!! May we all grow and mature in Christ during these upcoming Fall Holy Days!!!

Now YOU know what the Secret Treasures of Fall really are! I hope that you and your family will keep them with us, and be tremendously blessed by The Most High God because of it!!!

”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 U.S.A. (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.
