TO COG HAS RESTORED THE COMMANDED “FASTS” OF THE LORD!
We “ARE” the Servants of the Living God
TO COG HAS RESTORED THE COMMANDED “FASTS” OF THE LORD!
These 4 FASTS “ARE” Commanded by God!
(In addition to Atonement= 5 FASTS to the Lord)
The New Testament states that God’s people WILL fast: …when the Bridegroom… taken away…then they will fast. Matthew 9:15
The instructions as to “WHEN” to fast are in Zechariah 8:19.
19 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth…
Who said that?
Answer: Thus saith The Lord!
We/TO COG are identical to the 1st Century Netsari who used these fasts because we just like the Netsari, we The Obedient Church of God USE/RESTORED these fasts today:
These FASTS are VITAL to give you a Knowledge of God’s/our History
1.) God’s 1st Fast Day is:
The 9th of Tammuz circa July 7, 2014 marking the days the city wall of Jerusalem was breached (broken up) through to the 17th of Tammuz, commemorating the breach of the walls of Jerusalem before the destruction of the Second Temple.[1 . But GOD COMMANDS we fast on the 9th of Tammuz.
The Chaldeans seized King Zedekiah and killed the princes as they tried to flee the city. (We TO COG fast to repent of even any “hint” of an attitude in us that Zedekiah had).
17 Tammuz Shiv'ah Asar b'Tammuz was when the 10 Commandments were smashed).
17 Tammuz - (1312 BCE) - Golden Calf offered by the Jewish people, 40 days after
the giving of the Torah at Har Sinai. This is the first of the 5 national
tragedies mourned on this day.
17 Tammuz - (423 BCE) - Temple service disrupted The daily sacrificial offerings (Korban Tamid) in the Holy Temple were discontinued, three weeks before the Babylonians' destruction of the First Temple in 586 BCE.. This is the second of the 5 national tragedies mourned on this day.
17 Tammuz - (70 CE) - Jerusalem Walls Breached The other three national tragedies mourned on Tammuz 17 are connected with the
Roman conquest of Jerusalem and their
destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE. Firstly, the walls of the besieged city of Jerusalem were breached.
third was that he placed an idol in the Holy Temple.
The fighting in Jerusalem continued for three weeks until the 9th of Av, when the Holy Temple was set aflame.
2.) God’s 2nd Fast Day is:
The 9th of Av circa Aug 5, 2014 (Tisha B’Av) when the 1st temple was burned. (We TO COG fast on that day, to examine ourselves to see that we will not be “burned” up).
3.) God’s 3rd Fast Day is:
The 3rd of Tishri circa Sept 27, 2014 when Gidaliah ben Ashikam was assassinated. (The death of the righteous is equivalent to the burning of the Temple). (We TO COG fast to remind ourselves that the righteous can be slain). Trumpets/Rosh Hoshana is circa Sept 25, 2014 – Atonement/Yom Kippur is circa Oct 4 2014 – Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles starts circa Oct 9, 2014 - Shemini Atzeret a separate Feast Day is circa Oct 16. 2014.
Atonement/Yom Kippur is circa Oct 4 2014
4.) God’s 4th Fast Day is:
The 10th of Tevet circa Jan 1, 2015. On that day the King of the Babylonians began the siege of Jerusalem. This was the first of a series of events that led to the destruction of the first Temple. We TO COG fast to remind ourselves that “DISobedience” has consequences.
The New Testament states that God’s people “WILL” fast, and not just helter skelter when “they” please.
These above “ARE” the “COMMANDED” Fasts of The Lord,
that TO COG has RESTORED, that no other offshoot is following!
We TO COG “ARE” the Netsari
as proven by the fact that we do exactly/fast exactly like the Netsari did
and take Passover when the Netsari did.
There are days on which “all” of Israel FASTS, because of the calamities that occurred on those days.
We fast on them to awaken our hearts and enter upon the paths of “repentance”.
This fasting should be a reminder of our misdeeds, and those of our fore bearers, that eventually brought their troubles upon them, and upon us.
For the remembrance of these matters will turn us around for the better.
Therefore during the 4 Fast Days every person should make a heartfelt examination of his actions [and thoughts behind his actions], and rectify any shortcomings.
For the most important aspect is not the fasting, rather it is the repentance; the fasting is only the preparation for the repentance. snip
Our 86 year old member Ozelia Ruth Welling ((whom we consider is being used by God like a prophetess)= she is more than just called and Baptized)) writes:
Are Jews repenting of anything? That is what the fasts are for.
Marital status is not a prerequisite to be considered a prophetess. Of the ten female prophets mentioned in scripture:
1. Three were married (Deborah, Huldah, and obviously Isaiah's wife)
2. One was a widow (Anna)
3. Four were virgins at the time (Philip's daughters)
4. And two do not even have their marital status mentioned (Miriam and Noadiah)
Even during times when women held low standing in the eyes of men, the Bible tells stories of women in God-given positions of power and influence. After all, it is just like God to choose what mankind considers as the "weak things of the world to put to shame the things which [mankind considers] are mighty" (1 Corinthians 1:26-31).
BTW Ozelia Welling laid hands on me outside of a humble stable in Omak, Washington, specially anointing me for Ministry, in the fall of 2008.
Ironically a month later: Then began my independent ministry on Nov 29 2008, when the conjunction of the planets occurred with a spectacular three-way conjunction of Venus, Jupiter and the crescent Moon which was on the exact same day I was disfellowshipped by Dankenbring for not keeping his Turkey/Goose gOD Day.
She again laid hands on me in 2010 again, this time requesting Father to give me a double portion of His Holy Spirit, and that was when the “full” Powerful Broadcasts STARTED at Passover.
And way back in 2007:
There were 3 Meteorites in the sky that God used to talk to me directly:
While praying I asked: “Is this work going to be done with “POWER”?
1.) And immediately a Meteorite shot down like a sword “STRAIGHT DOWN” AT 90 DEGREES like a SWORD sticking into the ground in front of me, coming out from the North Heaven onto the hill I was facing.
I then asked: “Does this mean that this work is going to be done with Power and a Vengeance?”
2.) And immediately a 2nd Meteorite came down in front of me larger than the 1st, again at 90 degrees, straight down like a 2nd giant sword, again from the North, in front of me on the hill.
Then being “jarred” by these 2 meteorites that came down in front of me, I said: “OK Father: So be it.”
3.) And as soon as I spoke those words: “IMMEDIATELY” a 3RD Meteorite streaked exceedingly high straight across the sky: An underline across the “WHOLE” sky from West to East of a 3rd meteorite streaking straight across the “WHOLE” sky (not like any type of Meteorite ever seen before) directly above me, from the West to the East (and NEVER came down, instead staying up and disappearing “ABOVE” the Eastern Sky toward Jerusalem), while I was all this time facing North. This 3rd Meteorite did not come down. It made an UNDERLINE accent across the “WHOLE” Sky, just like a plane; and it never came down, nor stopped, but disappeared out of sight, headed toward Jerusalem.
I then said: “Thank you Father for your answering me!”; (all these prayers were “silent” prayers), and I headed inside, as my questions to Father were answered with 3 meteorites.
And THEY WERE SOOOOOOO… POWERFUL!
These were not dreams, but ACTUAL PHYSICAL EVENTS, like a burning bush that never is consumed!
Which leaves “NO ROOM for Doubt”.
In Grade 6
I was chosen out of the whole school to star in the role of Elijah in my School’s grand Play before 1,000 people, called “The Boy With the Silver Axe”, who commands the axe to come out of the water.
And I gave my first Church 20 minute speech presentation during the weekly Service (after returning from Luther College) to the 600 member Congregation of Zion Church at age 16, after which a Principle of a School spontaneously jumped out of his seat and said: “Smashing Great job” and shook my hand before the whole Congregation, as I was returning to my seat.
So things have been going on in my life a long time.
