Grace and peace be unto you, brothers and sisters. We are now preparing for the Feast of Firstfruits. My expectations for a great move of the Spirit are high. The conference, which will be celebrated June 5-8 here at The People of Truth worship center in South Hadley, Mass., will feature evening worship services Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Bible study meetings Friday and Saturday at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The meetings will culminate with a worship service on Sunday, the day of Pentecost, which will begin at 10:00 a.m.
All are welcome, and encouraged, to join with us as we worship the Almighty God during this feast of the Lord.
This year is particularly special, because June 13th marks the 100th anniversary of the Arise of the Church in these last days. On that day in 1903, a man, called of God, named Ambrose Jessup Tomlinson "found [the Church of God] in Fields of the Wood," near Murphy, N.C. The same year that man achieved flight, God was beginning to reveal the truth about His Elect people.
A century has passed, and the fulfillment of prophecy has brought us to this point: preparing a holy nation, a peculiar people, for the return of our Lord and King Jesus Christ.
Many believers have lessened their expectations of Jesus' imminent return, and have settled in for the long term. We, however, know that Christ's return is very near, and prophecies are rapidly being fulfilled which signal that this age is coming to a close.
In but a few years, a new day will dawn on the Earth. The Lord will come to rule for 1,000 years with His saints and every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord of lords and King of kings.
Then shall the heavens sing, and the earth be joyful, the mountains shall break forth into singing and the trees of the field shall clap their hands: for the Lord shall have comforted His people and glorified Himself in them! Hallelujah!
So, we mark a century of the history of our movement in these latter days, but the days before us are few. Let us commit ourselves to the work of God, and set our hearts to be the Bride that hath made herself ready for the return of the Bridegroom.
