E-news for November 20, 2015
RT Available Online
The November/December edition of the Restoration Times is now available online. In this latest installment you will find articles on the past and future temples, the history and etymology of Christmas, examples of biblical illiteracy, profaning the holy, heart-touching testimonies from this year’s Feast of Tabernacles, and much more! As a gift from the Ministry, our financial partners will be receiving a hard copy of the RT by mail in the next two weeks. Included in the mailing is also a 2016 wall calendar with next year’s dates for the projected biblical months and observances. We hope to have the calendar online in the near future.
New Outreach Version
We are excited to announce that the new Outreach version of the third edition of the Restoration Study Bible is scheduled for delivery on Monday, November 23. This new version is a laminated paperback for the purpose of greater distribution. Except for the cover, it contains the full content of the current three styles, including footnotes and Strong’s dictionaries. The cost for this new version will be $18.99. However, for those who order a case or more, the donation price drops to $14.99 (donation price does not include shipping). We pray that this new version of the RSB will allow for greater circulation and accessibility for those on limited incomes. We also hope to donate a greater number of copies to correctional facilities and overseas. It should be available for order early next week from store.yrm.org.

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
Under which king of Judah did Israel split between two independent kingdoms?
It was under the reign of Rehoboam, King of Judah, when the southern and northern kingdoms divided. After this division, only the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, along with a portion of Levi, remained with Rehoboam. The first ruler of the northern kingdom was Jeroboam. This man perverted worship and set in motion a pattern of sin that would follow all the remaining kings of the northern kingdom. For a record of Jeroboam’s sins, see 1Kings 12. Ironically the cause of the great divide was because of Solomon, the Son of David. 1Kings 11:11-13 records, “Wherefore Yahweh said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant. Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father’s sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son. Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for David my servant’s sake, and for Jerusalem’s sake which I have chosen.”
May Yahweh bless,
