FEAST OF TABERNACLES 2016 COMING KINGDOM OF GOD
FIRST DAY OF THE FEAST
Prophecy of the Future: Truth and Error
The picture painted by Isaiah, and Micah of the millennial reign of the King of Kings, is one that should give every Christian hope for the future. Yet within their prophecies they also include a message that has caused many Christians to stumble, and reject the plain teaching of scripture. Do you know what has been the source of confusion over the millennia since these biblical books were penned? Do you know why these things were allegorized and their plain meaning obscured? Let the Word of God reveal the answer to these all important questions. Make sure you know the answer so you can hold firm to the word of truth, and be encouraged by God’s amazing promises.
SECOND DAY OF THE FEAST
Coming Kingdom of God
Daniel reveals the mystery of the coming Kingdom of God. So what did he see and what did he reveal to the king of Babylon? What was the meaning of Nebuchadnezzar’s awesome vision? What kingdoms did the statue represent, and how would they come to an end? What Kingdom would replace all the previous kingdoms and fill the whole world? Who was the Son of Man? The scriptures reveal answers to this mysterious prophecy of the future.
THIRD DAY OF THE FEAST
Beginning of the Gospel
There is a great continuity in the message of scripture. Long before Christ appeared the hope of the Kingdom was prophesied by David. Malachi wrote of the messenger who would prepare the “way for the Lord.” Later Mark recorded the “beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ” proclaiming the message of the gospel of the Kingdom of God, by word and by action. Are we imitating Christ’s example and so fully following the message of the gospel of the Kingdom as faithful disciples? Learn a lesson from Jesus parable of the trees.
FOURTH DAY OF THE FEAST
The King’s Message about His Kingdom
Almost two thousand years ago Christ came and brought a message about the King and his kingdom. He instructed his disciples, all who are called of the Father, that we should pray that his Kingdom should come soon. But it is not here yet. So, what is the secret of the Kingdom that Christ revealed to his disciples, but not to the world? What is the nature of the realm of the King’s sovereign rule? What is the job the King wants us to do?
FIFTH DAY OF THE FEAST
The Kingdom will Grow
Jesus spoke of the farmer planting the seeds and the mystery of the seeds growing “spontaneously,” as an analogy of the Kingdom of God. What did he mean, and what are the implications for those disciples called to sow the seed? Daniel, Isaiah, and David all add to our understanding of how the Kingdom of God will grow, as both a physical and spiritual reality. Let the scriptures reveal the answers to this great marvel.
SIXTH DAY OF THE FEAST
Saints of the Kingdom
Do you know a “Saint?” Are you a “Saint?” There are many misconceptions about saints, among the religious! But the scripture gives us all we need to know to become a saint, set apart by God and different from the world. Learn from the life of Paul, Dorcas, and the disciples, the reality of living as the saints of the Kingdom of God.
DAY SEVEN OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES
The Saints will Rule
Christ will return and rule as KING of kings, but he will not rule alone, the saints will rule the Kingdom with Christ . But who are the saints who will become those kings who will rule with Christ? How do they gain their power? How will they rule? This mystery is an important part of God’s plan for the restoration of the Kingdom of God on earth. So what does the bible reveal about the time when the saints will rule the kingdom?
THE EIGHTH DAY!
Can These Bones Live?
Hope of the resurrection!
Can these bones live. The short answer is, “Yes!” but there is much more to the story. God says that, “all will be saved” but is that happening now? When will God work to save all of humanity? God’s plan of salvation for all is revealed through the Holy Days that God created as memorials and as prefigurative events envisioning what is to come in the future. The future is full of hope for those who put their trust in the God of scripture.
