Reflection on Pentecost Weekend
unnamed
We were especially blessed last Pentecost weekend. For starters, Elder Pete Vacca, a dedicated, long-time, servant in the body of Messiah, delivered a powerful message on “Reading Your Bible.” As he explained, reading alone is not enough, we must seek to understand and live what we find in Scripture. The following day, Elder Alan Mansager reviewed the timing and meaning of Pentecost. If you missed either of these two dynamic messages, you can watch them online in our Sabbath archive. We were also blessed to add a new sister to the household of faith on the day of Pentecost. Sister Ronda along with her husband and children drove from North Carolina to observe the weekly Sabbath and Pentecost and to receive baptism into Yahshua’s Name. We were also blessed with visitors from New Jersey, Oklahoma, Iowa, and throughout Missouri. (Picture: Elders Alan Mansager, Pete Vacca, Bob Wirl, and Randy Folliard laying hands on Sister Ronda for the imparting of the Holy Spirit)

Q&A – How to Study the Bible, Pt. 4

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
What will be the punishment of those nations who refuse to observe the Feast of Tabernacles in the millennial Kingdom?

A. Stoning
B. Drought
C. Incarceration
D. No punishment; the feasts will not be celebrated

According to Zechariah 14:16-17, those who do not go up to observe the Feast of Tabernacles will suffer the plague of no rain, i.e., drought. This prophetic passage not only confirms that this day will be observed in the millennial Kingdom when Yahshua the Messiah governs this world, but also shows the seriousness for noncompliance today. Yahweh’s days are not suggestions, but commands. During the Feast of Tabernacles we are commanded to stay in booths (temporary shelters) and to gather with believers of like faith, Leviticus 23:42-43.

Correct: B

Join Us for Pentecost Weekend
unnamed
Join us this weekend for a special Sabbath service and Pentecost. It was during Pentecost or the Feast of Weeks when the Law was given to Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai. It was also the time when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the early assembly. In addition to Elder Alan delivering the Pentecost message, this year we are also blessed to have Elder Pete Vacca speaking the Sabbath before Pentecost. Besides being a regular panel member on Discover the Truth Talk Live, Elder Pete has been a faithful servant of the Messiah for several decades. We are honored to have him speaking at YRM. You can join us for Pentecost weekend in Holts Summit, Missouri, or online at yrm.org/live.

Building Addition Update
unnamed (2)We are excited to announce that we have officially signed the contract securing a general contractor and have broken ground for the new facilities. This week we have relocated utility and Internet lines to allow for the foundation. We have also relocated and put in place a temporary septic system prior to the final treatment plant. Weather permitting, we hope to dig the foundation and pour the footings next week. Visit us on Facebook for additional photos.

Delays in the Coming Months
With the shortage of staff and the many activities of the Ministry, including the current building project, we anticipate delays in the coming months. We apologize in advance. Even though this is a very busy time for us, we thank Yahweh for the growth in both the work and facilities. For an effort that started in a basement of a residence, He has blessed us beyond anything we could have imaged.

Third Month Confirmed and Upcoming New Moon
The new moon of the third biblical month was confirmed on Tuesday, May 19. Scripture commands that we’re to watch and observe the new moon crescent, Exodus 12:2 and Deuteronomy 16:1.

When within the Feast of Unleavened Bread does the Bible instruct us to begin the count to Pentecost?

A. Weekly Sabbath
B. First annual Sabbath (Abib 15)
C. Second annual Sabbath (Abib 21)
D. Sunday

Leviticus 23:15 instructs us to count from the “morrow after the Sabbath” during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The word “Sabbath” here refers to the weekly Sabbath, not to the annual Sabbath. The Hebrew word for Sabbath is shabbath, referring to the weekly Sabbath, not shabbathown, meaning, “a sabbatism or special holiday,” referring to a High day or annual Sabbath. Also, the phrase “morrow after the Sabbath” is inclusive or must be taken as a whole unit. Therefore, the count to Pentecost begins on Sunday, i.e., the day after the weekly Sabbath, within the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Another reason for this is the command to have seven complete weeks, which does not occur when you begin the count from the weekly or annual Sabbath.

Correct: D

A. 0

D. 15

Sadly, not one king in the Northern Kingdom is credited as doing that which was right. They all did evil! Two of the most corrupt kings were Jeroboam and Ahab. Being the first king over the Northern Kingdom, Jeroboam forsook proper worship by establishing his own days of worship and replaced Yahweh with two golden calves. He also made priests from the lowest of the people. Likewise, Ahab, under the influence of Jezebel, permitted Baal worship and perverted the entire kingdom. A lesson we learn from the Northern Kingdom is that a nation’s success and prosperity is contingent upon its leaders. Correct: A

New Building Addition
unnamed (3)
The Ministry is excited to officially announce a new multipurpose addition soon to break ground. The facility will contain two levels with a total of approximately 7,000 square feet, and connect our two existing buildings. The main level will include a fellowship hall for dining and other assembly gatherings, commercial bathrooms, children’s playroom, and a covered veranda. The lower level will include a library, conference room for weekly Bible studies, a children’s class room, and additional commercial bathrooms with showers for those staying in our camping area at feasts. The addition will also have another room connecting to our office building for our digital press and extra storage. We thank those who are making this building project possible through their generous support. Since YRM‘s priority has always been outreach, we have not focused on local building needs. For about 10 years we’ve done without a dining room (forcing us to dismantle our worship hall every Sabbath), adequate bathrooms, and sufficient space for the children. This addition will be a tremendous blessing to the local assembly and to our many visitors. We are also doing some minor remodeling to our existing structures. We hope to have a contractor selected in the next few weeks. Deacon Terry O’Neal will help oversee the project. He and his wife Lisa will be relocating from Georgia. They will be a welcomed addition to the local assembly.

Current Progress
unnamedDeacon Terry and Brother Ryan Mansager have begun remodeling the existing library into a nursery and play area for the small kids. Last week, Ryan built a clubhouse for the children. Even though the room is not complete, on Sabbath the children thoroughly enjoyed this new space (we could hardly get the kids out of the room). As well, this week a local contractor installed new concrete steps leading from the hall to the camping area and upper parking lot, providing local members and visitors with a safe passage way.

 

Donation Receipts
First quarter donation receipts were mailed this week. We thank all those who have helped with their financial gifts, donations, and tithes. This Ministry operates solely on the generosity of others. For those who have so kindly supported YRM, we pray that Yahweh’s blessings would be upon you. As our Heavenly Father promises in Malachi 3:10: “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith Yahweh of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”

Crescent Confirmed and 2nd Passover
unnamed (1)The new moon of April 19 was confirmed by several brethren, marking the 2nd biblical month. For those immersed into Yahshua’s Name who were not able to observe the first Passover, this will place the second Passover on May 2nd. On a side note, this is the only observance that allows for a second observance in the event that someone was on a long journey or unclean from a dead body, Numbers 9:10-11.Picture: courtesy of Assembly of Yahweh (7th Day)
Preparing for Upcoming Feasts
With the Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread past, we now look forward to Pentecost (Feast of Weeks) and the Fall Feasts. Yahweh’s Feasts are not only commanded times of worship, but also represent important scriptural events, including many that are prophetic. For example, the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost represents both the giving of the Law in the Old Testament and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament. To make it possible to attend the Feasts, Yahweh in Deuteronomy 14:22-27 commands believers to save a second tithe. This is different from the first tithe. While the first tithe is holy to Yahweh and is to be used exclusively toward His service, the second is for the worshiper. If you have not begun saving your second tithe, we encourage that you do so. With proper savings and planning, insufficient funding and other common excuses should not be reasons for missing the Feasts. Below are the dates for the remaining 2015 Feasts:
  • Feast of Weeks: May 24
  • Feast of Trumpets: September 15
  • Day of Atonement: September 24
  • Feast of Tabernacles: September 29 – October 5

Remembering Passover and FUB
unnamed (2)This year’s Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread in Holts Summit, MO, was a blessing for all in attendance. Including the many who joined us from our home state, Missouri, we had brethren come from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Ohio, Colorado, Wisconsin, Iowa, Oklahoma, Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Illinois, and Ontario, Canada. With all those in attendance, our facilities were filled to capacity. In addition to the Passover Memorial and the annual and weekly Sabbaths, we were blessed with a couple of baptisms, a special youth service, several Bible studies and activities throughout the week. Bible study topics included effective witnessing and the Trinity. unnamedAlong with these, we also offered two Defending the Faith workshops, where brethren had to defend their faith from common arguments. As for activities, we had a day on the lake, a Mediterranean dinner, family Bingo night, and tours of Missouri’s Governor’s Mansion, Capitol, and Supreme Court building.

Live Passover Service
unnamed (1)We will be broadcasting live our Passover service tomorrow evening at 7:30, Central, from yrm.org/live. The Passover arguably is the most solemn of Yahweh’s observances. It marks the death of the firstborn of Egypt and the death of Yahweh’s only begotten Son, Yahshua the Messiah. For those who participate online, only those who are baptized into the Name of “Yahshua” are eligible for the emblems. This is based on the fact that Yahweh requires circumcision (Ex. 12:48), which is now fulfilled through baptism into Yahshua’s Name, Colossians 2:11-13. Also, if you are in a later time zone, you will need to wait for the rebroadcast. May Yahweh prepare all believers for this most important night!

Don’t Neglect the Feast!
unnamed
The Feast of Unleavened Bread will be from Saturday evening, April 4th, through the following Sabbath, April 11. We plan to broadcast online both High Day services on April 5 and 11, 1:30 PM, Central. We also plan to broadcast our youth service Friday evening, April 10, 7:00 PM. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is the first of three annual pilgrimage Feasts and offers a time of not only removing the physical leavening, but also the spiritual leavening. It was also during this time when the wave sheaf was offered, beginning the count to the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost, and of Yahshua’s resurrection.

Remove the Leavening
unnamed
A leavening agent (sometimes called just leavening or leaven) is a substance used in doughs and batters that causes them to rise. In the presence of moisture, heat, acidity, or other triggers the leavening agent reacts to produce gas (often carbon dioxide) that becomes trapped as bubbles within the dough. When a dough or batter is baked, it “sets” and the holes left by the gas bubbles remain. This is what gives breads, cakes, and other baked goods their soft, sponge-like textures.

During the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Yahweh commands that no leavening be eaten or found on our premises: “Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land. You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread,” Exodus 12:19-20. Based on this year’s calendar, all leavening must be removed by the evening of April 4, the start of Unleavened Bread. Below we list leavening agents found in a variety of foods that must be used up or removed by the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Incidentally, it is not acceptable to remove leavening from your property only to bring it back once the Feast is over. The lesson is to remove leavening entirely from our lives, which represents that which promotes corruption. To bring it back at the end of the Feast subverts the whole purpose of the lesson.

Commonly used leavening agents include:

Also found in:

  • Beer/wine/alcohol
  • Preparation H (has yeast)
  • Cat and dog foods with yeast
  • Toothpastes with baking soda

False Leaven
Below are foods or ingredients not leavened, although some people mistake them for leavening or leavened food. They pose no problem biblically speaking:

 

  • Puffed cereals: Some food products are “puffed up” by mechanical means but cannot be used as a contact spreading agent.  They are just puffed up by air and are not chemically leavened.  They include: popcorn, beaten eggs, and air puffed cereal like puffed rice or wheat.
  • Brewer’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae): An inactive yeast, meaning the yeasts have been killed and have no leavening power. It is the yeast remaining after beer making. It is used as a nutrient supplement to increase the intake of B vitamins. Brewer’s yeast comes powdered (the most potent form), in flakes (best for health shakes), and in tablets.
  • Yeast extract, autolyzed yeast extract: When yeast cells die, they automatically break up, a process called autolysis in which the yeasts’ digestive enzymes break their proteins down into simpler compounds. What remains is a collection of protein, fats, vitamins, minerals, and monosodium glutamate (MSG), a flavor enhancer.
  • Soda pop: Although its name says “soda,” soda pop is not leavened as if with bicarbonate of “soda.” It is made with water that has been infused with carbon dioxide in a non-leavening process.

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
The word “evening” in Exodus 12:6 in reference to the Passover lamb refers to 3:00 PM to sunset.

A. True
B. False

 

Exodus 12:6 commands that we observe the Passover at even, referring to sunset. Specifically, the word even refers to sunset to complete darkness. We explain in the Restoration Study Bible, “The timing of the word ‘evening’ has been a matter of debate for millennia. It is derived from the Hebrew phrase ben ha arbayim, which literally means, ‘between the two evenings.’ While rabbinical Judaism and Pharisaic and Talmudic tradition define ben ha arbayim as ‘between noon and sunset,’ it became a period of time that expanded over the centuries. The Sadducees, the Karaites, and the Samaritans define this phrase as between sunset and complete darkness. See Numbers 9:3-5, 11 and Leviticus 23:5. Based on scriptural evidence and modern scholarship, the latter interpretation is favored. According to The Interpreter’s Bible, the latter definition is the older of the two views: ‘The usage of the time referring to that after sunset and before darkness is the older practice’ (pg. 919). This was also the same time as the evening sacrifice (Ex. 29:38-39).”

Correct: B

One Week to Passover/FUB
unnamed (1)With the Abib new moon being confirmed on March 21, we can now state that the Passover will be the evening of April 3 and the Feast of Unleavened Bread from April 5-11. The Passover arguably is the most solemn of Yahweh’s observances. It marks the death of the firstborn of Egypt and the death of Yahweh’s only begotten Son, Yahshua the Messiah. Furthermore, the Feast of Unleavened Bread is the first of three annual pilgrimage Feasts and offers a time of not only removing the physical leavening, but also the spiritual leavening. Along with worship services, Bible studies, and biblical documentaries, we have many activities planned throughout the week, including an authentic Mediterranean dinner, family bingo night, tours of Missouri’s Governor’s Mansion, Capitol, Supreme Court, and much more. For more information or to register for the observance, visit yrm.org/FUB2015.

Guide to Leavening
unnamed
A leavening agent (sometimes called just leavening or leaven) is a substance used in doughs and batters that causes them to rise. In the presence of moisture, heat, acidity, or other triggers the leavening agent reacts to produce gas (often carbon dioxide) that becomes trapped as bubbles within the dough. When a dough or batter is baked, it “sets” and the holes left by the gas bubbles remain. This is what gives breads, cakes, and other baked goods their soft, sponge-like textures.

During the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Yahweh commands that no leavening be eaten or found on our premises: “Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread,” Exodus 12:19-20. Below we list leavening agents found in a variety of foods that must be used up or removed by the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Incidentally, it is not acceptable to remove leavening from your property only to bring it back once the Feast is over. The lesson is to remove leavening entirely from our lives, which represents that which promotes corruption. To bring it back at the end of the Feast subverts the whole purpose of the lesson. Commonly used leavening agents include:

Discover the Truth – Hebrew Roots

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
Even though the Passover was originally a yearly observance, Paul changed it with his statement in 1Corinthians 11:26: “…as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup.”

A. True
B. False

It’s first important to understand here that Paul was not referring to a separate observance from Passover. Even through many Bible believers separate the Passover from the “Communion,” the fact is they are historically connected. The practice of the modern Communion arose from the Passover. Additionally, when Paul stated, “…as often as you eat,” he was simply referring to the annual observance of Passover. This does not justify observing the Passover or “Communion” more often than the prescribed time.

Correct: B

  • “This is a must have study Bible. This 3rd edition adds many more charts, commentary, book introductions, as well as other valuable information. It is well worth the price and will help you so much in your Scripture study. The fact that there are 3 different covers to choose from is great but the best part about this version, just as the 2 previous versions, is that it uses the names Yahweh and Yahshua.” – JG
  • “I absolutely love this Bible! I can’t imagine myself ever using a different version again. …the more people check it out, the more they want it! I think I’ve had at least five people who never even were aware of the sacred names tell me they’d love to have a copy! It’s so good to be able to spread YHWH’s word of truth!”- LC

Sharing Within the Body
Elders Alan Mansager and Randy Folliard were recently blessed to share Yahweh’s Word with the extended body of believers. Elder Alan gave a message on the Hebraic New Testament and other key truths at Yahweh’s Frystown Assembly in Frystown, PA. In addition, Elder Randy delivered three separate messages on end-time prophecy, including the possibility of a final caliphate and parallels between the Beast of Revelation 13 and the final Imam, at the Assembly of Yahweh in Eaton Rapid, MI. We thank Pastors Jacob C. Meyer and Samuel Graham for the invites.

The modern celebration of Easter is associated with which pagan deity?

A. Baal
B. Eastra

According to the New Unger’s Bible Dictionary, “The word Easter is of Saxon origin, Eastra, the goddess of spring, in whose honor sacrifices were offered about Passover time each year. By the eighth century Anglo-Saxons had adopted the name to designate the celebration of Christ’s resurrection.” In addition, there is a connection between Easter and the Queen of Heaven, the worship of which Jeremiah condemned in chapters 7 and 44.

Three Weeks to Passover/FUB
unnamed
We invite you to this year’s Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread in Holts Summit, Missouri. The dates for this year will be determined by the appearance of the new moon crescent, which is scheduled to be seen on March 20 or 21. The later date is more likely.

If the new moon is confirmed on March 21, all dates will move forward by one day. The Passover arguably is the most solemn of Yahweh’s observances. It marks the death of the firstborn of Egypt and the death of Yahweh’s only begotten Son, Yahshua the Messiah.

Discover the Truth – Compromise for Short-Term Gain

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
Which version inserts the word “Easter” instead of “Passover” in Acts 12:4?

A. King James Version
B. New International Version
C. Revised Standard Version
D. American Standard Version

Only in the King James Version of the Bible does “Easter” appear in Acts 12:4. All modern versions have corrected this by inserting the word “Passover.” As we note in the Restoration Study Bible, “The KJV reads ‘Easter’ in place of ‘Passover.’ This was derived from a false rendering of the Greek word pascha, which is of Aramaic origin, referring to the OT Passover (see Ex. 12). According to the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, ‘The English word Easter comes from the Anglo-Saxon Eastre or Estera, a Teutonic goddess to whom sacrifice was offered in April.’ The Dake’s Annotated Reference continues: ‘Easter, Christmas, Lady Day, Lent, and other Babylonian festivals were all borrowed from this religion and were all observed centuries before (Messiah). None of them have any relationship to (Messiah) or Christianity.'”

Correct: A
