The Lord is Coming! Are you ready?

Dear Brothers and Sisters in IAUA (ee-ah-oo-ah) our Father,
Greetings on this day of preparation for the weekly Sabbath. I pray this newsletter finds you in good health and happy in the service of IAUA. This is day 28 of month 12 of the Biblical Calendar in the estimated year 6021 Anno Mundi.
The Spring Sabbaths begin in 2 weeks and three days with God's New Year's Day, Unleavened Bread Sabbath, day 15 of month 1 (Monday, April 2 of the 2018, Gregorian Calendar, at sunset Sunday, April 1).
On God's Calendar the Biblical month begins on the global day after lunar conjunction. The Biblical year begins with God's New Year's Day (Passover) after the spring equinox (Spring Passover Rule). The Millerite Calendar (Spring New Moon Rule) is a month late in the Gregorian 2018 year. The Calculated Rabbinical Calendar will be two days early in spring and one day early in fall.
A newsletter reader seeks my thoughts about what a "leader" says. My response was similar to what I presented in the 2010-11-12 newsletter titled "Follower".
Are you familiar with Matthew Nolan?
[My friend] was impressed with his "Exposing Purim" video on YouTube.
She is looking at his other teachings and wrote the following.
Do you have any thoughts on this?

... so I have continued to go through Nolan’s teachings, testing them against Scripture.
Yes, while Nolan came out of extreme messianic/Hebrew roots Judaizing, and while he does have it right concerning the order of Melchizedek as being the true order/administration of Messiah that the Levitical was but a shadow type of, and his position concerning there being a difference between the book of Torah & the book of the covenant, Nolan has taken those positions into unscriptural territory, which is something one could not glean from just reading their statement of beliefs at the Torah to the Tribes website. Unless one digs deep into the teachings, they will sadly be lead astray once again.
Yes, Nolan is spot on concerning the synagogue of satan. Yes, he is spot on concerning the difference between Torah and the covenants of promise that are written in the Torah, yes he is spot on concerning the administration of the order of Melchizedek that is functioning today from above, however, his lack of wisdom has caused him to set aside critical passages so to put forth an understanding that is not of YHWH, but of his flesh.
Now could Nolan turn from this false understanding as he has in the recent past? Yes! I have written him concerning his position that there was no new covenant entered into with the generation that Joshua lead into the promised land. He says there was not, YHWH’s word says there was (Dt 29:1-15). Nolan’s position is that if a sacrifice & covenant meal is not written specifically at the time of the covenant making, then it is not part of the covenants of promise spoken of by Paul in Ephesian 2:12. Well, if that is the case, then we are all screwed because Dt 29:1-15 covenant contains the promise of the new covenant as is revealed in the very next chapter, Dt 30:1-10 (which is but a continuance of chapter 29 but separated by man’s need to put chapter & verse, thereby badly dividing the Word of YHWH).
There is so much more, however, I will leave it at this for now.
I am not familiar with Matthew Nolan. I no longer look at other people's teachings to learn about what the Bible says. I go directly to the Bible. Most of the time I see people attempting to show something new and different but without real benefit to our spiritual growth.
I rarely look at audio/visual presentations because I have noticed an interesting problem. There is often an attempt to manipulate peoples thought and beliefs. I often see elements of hypnotism. I thought I wrote about this before in my blog but I don't find it. I need to talk about this at length in a future blog.
The primary purpose I have seen in these presentations is to gain a following and probably financial supporters. These people seem to want to set themselves as leaders. I follow only the Savior and I am not interested in being a leader for anyone.
However, I firmly believe in fellowship. We all need to be faithful students of the Bible. Students can certainly study together and help each other. God does call prophets to guide His people in their knowledge and understanding. Our Savior told us clearly that there will be a prophet at the end of time.
We can be certain that any self-proclaimed prophet is not a prophet. Only God calls and proclaims a prophet through the Holy Spirit.
Now, the subject of covenants is an interesting one. My study leads me to understand that there is only one eternal covenant that was first presented to Adam and presented anew to many people at different times with different words. The idea of a new covenant in the Renewed Testament that replaces and is different than any previous covenant is dangerous nonsense.
The basics of the covenant have always been the same with additional details added as needed. The first simple statement of the covenant. If you do what is wrong, you will die. After they sinned it was added that they would have a Savior and so on.
I prefer to keep things simple and direct at the start without going into details. I prefer keep it simple and Biblical. I also prefer to avoid adding complicated details and side issues until they are needed. I always remember to "Keep It Simple".
Matthew 18:4 Whoever will humble himself like this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
These are my thoughts about the deep subject of The Covenant. The meaning of new is not always that there is something that is different or replacing something before. New can also mean something that is a fresh or renewed statement of something that has already been said. I love to ponder these words:
Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 All things continue the way they have been since the beginning. The same things will be done that have always been done. There is nothing new under the sun. Someone might say, "Look, this is new," but that thing has always been here. It was here before we were.
Solomon is known as the wisest man to have ever lived. However, let us not forget that his wisdom came from the One who knows everything.
Do you follow God or man?
I pray we may all continue to seek love, peace, and unity in truth preparing for the soon coming of IAUShUO (ee-ah-oo-shoo-oh) Messiah, the Son of God.
