Will Jesus be at your Feast site?

In the next few weeks many of the hirelings that preside over the hundreds of divided groups in cog-land, will be gathering in various locations around the world to celebrate what they misguidedly think is the Feast of Tabernacles. But the burning question is this, will Christ be attending with them, or will they just be on holiday?

In the UK, the two major groups are UCG and David Hulme's COG. Now it should be evident to any genuine Christian that Jesus won't be attending with these. David Hulme and the discredited UK "ministry" failed to speak out against Tkach's doctrinal changes. In fact, they advised the brethren to stay with WCG while they were planning to leave and join UCG, hoping that when the brethren realised what was going on they would follow them like dumb sheep, which is exactly what happened! What duplicity.

Some three years later, when Hulme was removed for misleading UCG, he conspired with most of the UK hirelings to hijack UCG, UK membership, and then proceeded to start his own church. Yet there isn't one single example in the New Testament of any Apostle ever leaving his fellow Apostles to start his own church, and still be regarded as a genuine minister of Christ.

On the contrary, Paul was inspired to emphasize the unity of Christ thus: "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment"(1 Cor. 1:10). Now, it should be evident to anyone who has not been completely deceived by the Devil, that the hundreds of divided groups in cog-land do not speak "the same thing," and they certainly are not "perfectly joined together in the same mind and judgment" about anything. Yet, the Holy Spirit of truth, who infallibly inspired the the Holy Scriptures, told the brethren that they must be "endeavouring to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace"(Eph. 4:3). So how can men who claimed to be led by the holy spirit end up fighting amongst themselves, instead of obeying the command of God to preserve the unity of the spirit among themselves? The answer is very simple, they don't have the spirit of God. And anyone who doesn't have the spirit of Christ, doesn't belong Christ, and therefore cannot keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

Under the New Testament dispensation Jesus revealed that the Christian body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, where God dwells. And Paul confirms thus: "Know you not that you are the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwells in you?"(1 Cor. 3:16).

This is a sublime doctrine, which cannot be understood by those who are motivated by money and power. So I am not sure that I should waste my time writing a detailed exposition of the relationship between the Tabernacle in the wilderness and the Christian body. Suffice to say, you can be absolutely sure that no one in UCG, LCG, PCG, RCG, David Hulme's COG or any of the other hundreds of divided groups, led by hirelings, will be keeping the Feast with Christ, because they are not the temple of God!

So which group will YOU be attending with, Mr. Mahon?

>>So which group will YOU be attending with, Mr. Mahon?<<

I do not attend with any group. I will be keeping the Feast with my family in fellowship with God, the father and my Lord and saviour Jesus Christ.

'And do not forsake the assembling of yourselves together, so much more as you see the Day approaching.'

God expects us to be together with those of like-mind, especially on His Holy Days.

But two cannot walk together, except they agree. So where are the people of like-mind, who will be keeping the Feast?

I don't know who you are or where you attend. But if you are a genuine Christian, you won't be afraid to say who you are or where you attend.

However, the "ministers" in both UCG and Hulme's COG are guilty of running away and leaving the flock. So even though they call themselves ministers, they are actually hirelings. So if you are arguing that I should be attending with either UCG or Hulme's COG that will never happen. For if the ministers in either of those two groups are are genuine shepherds, then, I am not the sheep, for I don't recognise they voice. And Jesus said: "My sheep will hear my voice."
