Scottish Oat Bread Recipe

1⁄2 cup soft butter or margarine

1 cup graham flour

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoon water

1-1/2 cups old fashioned oats crushed in your hands

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix flour, salt, sugar and oats in a bowl. Cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly.

Our memories of the Feast of Tabernacles 2019 (FOT) remain vivid, owing to the many blessings all the way around. Brethren and others came for the right reasons, to worship and serve Yahweh, which made all the difference.

Attendees came from all four ends of the U.S. in faithful obedience to Yahweh’s call to keep the seventh-month Feast. A great blessing was that our Feast facilities neared maximum capacity—a good problem to have! The most obvious need is an expansion of our parking areas. More than 65 vehicles at times vied for limited space, which we plan to remedy in the future. We also will add lights to our parking lot, which have been awaiting installation for several years.

Also included in the blessings were a total of 15 baptisms right before, during and immediately after the Feast. Those immersed traveled from their home states of Florida, California and Long Island, N.Y., to seek a new walk in Messiah. Eight of the newly immersed were welcomed into the Body at the Feast.

A popular new addition to the facility at Holts Summit was an amphitheater built by local brethren and begun only three weeks before Tabernacles. Complete with lights, sound system, ceiling fans, and two side storage rooms, it served well as a gathering for outdoor music, the Western Day, and movie night. At other times of the year it will be used as a garage for the ministry vehicle as well as storage, which we have needed for many years.

The commercial Hobart dishwasher was a real time saver for the ladies, who were happy to have had it ready for the Feast. The kitchen remodeling continues and we thank those who contributed toward this project.

Yet another addition for future Feasts is a used Snoopy bounce house just purchased locally. The little ones should have a great time bouncing off energy as Snoopy nods up and down with their movements.

We pray you will be making plans now to keep Yahweh’s commanded days in 2020. Don’t let the Adversary deter you. YRM itself was tested with numerous equipment breakdowns right after the Feast. We dealt with major failures of key electronic equipment, computers, plumbing leaks and an AC unit. But no matter how hard the test, Yahweh provided a way to resolve each problem. (A gifted sister in the faith worked diligently for days to restore the electronics, saving us many thousands of dollars.) He will do the same for you when you are tried, provided you don’t give in to the Evil One. Blessings in Yahweh.

What did Yahshua mean when he stated in John 10:30, “I and my Father are one”?

A. One in person
B. One in goal
C. One in mind
D.Both B and C

In John 10:30, Yahshua referred to Himself and His Father as being one in mind and goal, not one in person. The Restoration Study Bible further explains, “By being ‘one,’ Yahshua refers to their singleness of mind and purpose. It is this same spiritual unification that all people can have with the Father in Messiah Yahshua. See John 17:21, where Yahshua speaks of this uniting of the faithful in their belief as one, but not as the same individual in physical form” (note on John 10:30).

Answer: D.

Feast of Tabernacles 2019 Review

“It was the best Feast of Tabernacles I have ever observed, and I have kept many.” This comment was echoed repeatedly from the 200+ who came to Holts Summit for the Feast of 2019. The eight-day observance was a flurry of activities, including: in-depth messages, workshops, sacred music and movies at the new amphitheater, youth classes, campfires, gymnasium sports, outings, Western extravaganza, delicious meals, and great fellowship. First-time attendees found the brethren friendly, engaging, helpful, and a spiritual blessing that only Yahweh’s people can be.

Here are some of the remarks left in the comment box:

* “This has been the most uplifting time I have ever had. The organization has a down-to-earth feeling and it was pure spiritual enjoyment. The education in Yahweh and His divine way for us has drawn me and my family ever closer to Him.”

* “It was a joy to be here. We loved the feast and enjoyed the stay at the room and interacting with others.”

* “Appreciate the children’s class for my little guy. I love that he can have an age-appropriate experience with learning about the Bible.”

* “I never go hungry. The salad bar was amazing.”

* “Great messages from the speakers. I enjoyed the variety.”

* “Our first few days this past week and we had such an amazing time. Learned so much and made such amazing friends! Learned the Hebrew aleph-bet. Learned how to tie different ways for head coverings, sang songs, camped, ate, cooked, watched movies, and more! We also learned some Hebrew dances, the men cooked an amazing barbecue, and many of the young ones and others shared their talents of music and singing one night. We honestly didn’t want to come home.”

* “The music was uplifting and wonderful to sing along with.”

* “Thank you for all you do in making each Feast better than the one before.”

* “I just spent seven days with the purest, happiest, and holiest families I’ve ever met, and can tell you it’s not an act. …Yahweh is calling His children and He seems to be sending the best of the best to the Assemblies like ours. Makes me feel blessed to enjoy worship in such an atmosphere….All the questions I grew up asking have now been answered…” (post-Feast thoughts)

We will have more reporting on the Feast of Tabernacles 2019 in future newsletters. Our prayer is that you will be with us for all of Yahweh’s commanded Feasts in 2020.


What is the best criterion for determining who is a true Believer?
A – They are filled with the Holy Spirit.
B – They do the will of Yahweh.
C – They have a deep, consistent devotional life.
D – They manifest signs and wonders.

In seeming anticipation of this confused age, Yahshua makes a special point to answer the question, “Who is my brother?” In Matthew 12:48-50 and Luke 8:21 He declares that it is those who hear the Word of Yahweh and do His will. They put it into practice.

Answer: B.

In prayer, the only way up is down.

Head Covering – Is It Important?

As we enter a time in history where respect, authority, and submission are met with arguments and challenging debate, the question of the importance of a head covering seems to be a recurring theme, especially among the women.  Is it still important today? Does the Father really expect us to cover our heads in worship?

I am writing from a woman’s perspective of wearing a head covering in worship to my Father. Yahweh is the King over all creation.  Yahweh has placed Yahshua in authority underneath Him and then has created man to serve next in line underneath Yahshua.  We see from Scripture that woman was created for man’s companionship and not the other way around:


Just as in a major company, there is a President (head), then someone next in line who serves the President and then there are managers who are underneath the Vice President and answer to him.  If there are problems or issues in the chain of command, the one in charge is the one who answers to his boss, etc. When we wear coverings on our head, especially in our worship, we are acknowledging that there is someone in authority over us, that we are submitting, agreeing, and recognizing the authority line that He has placed in existence.

In Genesis 24 we read of the situation where Rebecca sought to cover herself with a veil when she learned it was Isaac (her soon-to-be husband/master) who was approaching them.

Gen 24:65, “…and she had said to the servant, ‘Who is this man walking in the field to meet us? And the servant said, ‘It is my master.’ So she took a veil and covered herself.

When a sin or disobedience to Yahweh’s Word happened in the chain of command, we see in the following verse that the woman bore her sin alone and the husband was not responsible to account for her or bear her sin.  Her covering/protection was removed and she would bear full punishment for her actions.  Looking at the Scripture below, we surmise that if a woman was guilty of committing adultery or causing her husband to suspect her of adultery then she was brought to the temple and her head was “uncovered.”

Num 5:18, “And the priest shall make the woman stand before יהוה, and shall uncover the woman’s head, and put the offering for remembering in her hands, which is the grain offering of jealousy, while the priest holds in his hand the bitter water that brings a curse.”

An important aspect that seems to be missing in the concept of the head covering is that a woman is protected underneath her husband or her Father.  If her covering was removed or off of her head, then essentially her “protection” was no longer applicable.

Eph 5:22-27, “Wives, subject yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Master.” 

 Eph 5:23, “Because the husband is head of the wife, as also the Messiah is head of the assembly, and He is Savior of the body.”

 Eph 5:24, “But as the assembly is subject to Messiah, so also let the wives be to their own husbands in every respect.” 

Eph 5:25, “Husbands, love your wives, as Messiah also did love the assembly and gave Himself for it.”  

Eph 5:26, “in order to set it apart and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word,” (Footnote: Rev. 19:8-9).  

Eph 5:27, “in order to present it to Himself a splendid assembly, not having spot or wrinkle or any of this sort, but that it might be set-apart and blameless.”  

Wearing a head covering shows that we respect the chain of authority that Yahweh has put in place since creation.  The woman was made to serve the man and man was NOT made for the woman. The reason for the covering, I believe, is to know and understand that during worship we are in submission to our Creator and we are outwardly acknowledging that with our physical covering.

May YHWH be with you as you further your search for the truth!

Crunch Time for Tabernacles Preparations
With Feast of Tabernacles just a little over a week away, it’s down to the deadline. A reminder that
unless you’re staying in a motel room or RV, you will need to bring your own bedding for the Rec Center. The dorm rooms have mattresses, but you must provide your own sleeping bag, blankets and pillows. If there are any incontinence issues in your family please bring a waterproof mattress cover. You will also need to bring your own washcloths and towels for showers. The thermostat for the dorm rooms will be set in the low 70s, so if you’re someone who sleeps best in a chilly room, you might bring a small electric fan.

Also, don’t forget to bring along crock-pots for meal prep, your clothing for dressing up for Western Day, and any supplies you might need for the Chuck Wagon Cook-off. Weather permitting, there will be a campfire each evening so include your camp chairs.

A list of acceptable items to wear is very helpful. Therefore, I have included our Dress Code below in

During times of worship:

* Dress shirts, collar shirt, and pants for men and boys.

* Dresses, skirts, or dress pants for women and young ladies.

* During services ladies must have their heads covered (scarves or hats) and men must keep their heads uncovered, 1Corinthians 11:5-7.

If you do not have dress attire for worship, please come in your best, as we are coming before the King of the Universe.

During other times at YRM please avoid immodest dress, including: low neckline, sleeveless, exposed back, skirt above the knees, exposed midriff, tight fitting, shorts, and see-through.

Two commercial refrigerators and chest freezers are available in the Activities Building kitchen area for those staying in the upstairs dorm rooms. Each of the downstairs rooms, which are reserved for the infirmed, has its own small refrigerator. Therefore, we ask that NO PERSONAL COOLERS OR ICE CHESTS be brought into the Activities Building. Also, since heat sources could be a major fire hazard, no heaters, clothes irons, hair irons, or candles are allowed in the dorm rooms.

If you are flying in and need public transportation, you will need to contact Mo-X, Missouri’s airport
shuttle service, to make arrangements to get you from the airport to the drop-off point. Call them toll-
free at: Toll Free 877-669-4826. Their schedules can be found online at reservations @

For those flying to St. Louis your drop-off point will be in Kingdom City (approx. 30 min. from Holts
Summit); the drop-off point for those flying to Kansas City is Columbia (approx. 40 min. away). The
closest Greyhound bus station and Amtrak train station are both in Jefferson City, about a 10-minute
drive away. Please let us know immediately the day and time of your arrival at your drop-off point so
we can arrange to have you picked up.

When you arrive here, please remember to register so we will know you’re here and so you will know
exactly where you’ll be staying. Registration will begin next Friday, September 13, in the main entryway, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. May Yahweh bless your travels to His Feast!

Broadcasting During the Feasts
YRM will be broadcasting LIVE on the Day of Atonement (1:30 P.M like every other Sabbath) also every day during the Feast of Tabernacles. (10:30 A.M every morning for duration of the Feast).

FINAL CALL for New Moon Sighting of the Seventh Month
As previously noted, the visible new moon crescent tonight will be difficult to see. If at least two reliable witnesses report it, then tonight will begin the Feast of Trumpets 2019. If not, the more likely confirmation tomorrow night will begin the Feast of Trumpets. Our Tabernacles activity calendar is based on the later sighting, but any activity changes either way will be negligible. Call the office at 573-896-1000 if you see it, or go to our new moon network website and make your report: We project only 37 minutes to see it tonight before it sets, being only 14 hours old. It will be 8.1 degrees high at sunset and will go down from there, and 5.4 degrees from the sun and razor thin. The probability of seeing it is highest in the West and Southwest U.S., weather permitting. A Saturday evening sighting will mean Tabernacles will have two Sabbath days back-to-back at each end.

The Feast of Trumpets likely anticipates which event?
A. Yahshua’s death
B. Yahshua’s Second Coming
C. The millennial Kingdom
D. The Second Resurrection

The Feast of Trumpets likely represents the Messiah’s Second Coming and the resurrection of the saints in the first resurrection. The Bible often connects Yahshua’s coming with the sound of the trumpet. In 1Thessalonians 4:16-18 Paul describes Yahshua’s coming and the first resurrection with the sound of a great trumpet. See also 1Corinthians 15:52 and Revelation 1:10.

Correct: B

Another Immersion Blessing
We rejoiced to witness the baptism of Dillard Madden of the Holts Summit Assembly. Dillard has eagerly planned for this key step in his spiritual walk and commitment and we welcomed him into the Body of Messiah on Sabbath, August 17. The technical team has installed the equipment for live video of the actual immersions outside, and some have commented how this is encouraging them to consider this critical step themselves. We will have immersions at the upcoming Feast of Tabernacles as well and pray that many will come and make the commitment to Yahweh as they rejoice with others at His commanded Feast (Lev. 23). Are you or someone you know seeking baptism? Click here!

Magazine in the Mail
The July-August Restoration Times was mailed this week. Included with the magazine are offering slips as reminders that Yahweh commands offerings on each of His holy days. These upcoming holy days are Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles. Yahweh says “none shall appear before me empty [handed]” for His appointed Feasts (Deut. 16:16). You will be able to read the online version soon by clicking HERE>>

Multi-use Pavilion Under Construction
To give us more flexibility for outdoor activities at Feasts we are constructing a multi-purpose pavilion behind the meeting hall. The site offers a natural amphitheater sound for musicians, plays, and other uses. Spectator seating will be on ground level or elevated on the hill across from the pavilion and we encourage Feast goers to bring their lawn chairs. At other times of the year the structure will provide much-needed storage space for equipment.
Critical New Moon on the Horizon
The new moon of Trumpets will be seen either on the evening of Aug. 30 (next Friday) or on the following Sabbath evening, Aug. 31. This crescent will establish which day all four Feasts of the seventh month will fall. We can’t emphasize enough to be sure to go out and look for it and report it to us. It will be very difficult to see August 30 but because it is a Trumpets moon we must make the effort. Our new moon reporting web site is Or you can call in at 573-896-1000 and we will have an operator standing by. We follow the biblical calendar based on agriculture and the new moon. As with our walk itself, confirming by visual sighting both the green ears of Abib and the new moons each month compels us to be actively involved in our worship and devotion. This pleases Yahweh.

Where in the New Testament do we find a reference to the Day of Atonement?
A. Matthew
B. John
C. Acts
D. Romans
Acts 27:9 reads, “Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because the fast was now already past, Paul admonished them.” The word “fast” is a reference to Atonement. As we note in the Restoration Study Bible, “This was the Day of Atonement, one of the seven annual observances of Leviticus 23, NIV Study Bible note. Thirty years after Yahshua’s resurrection, a reference to this annual command shows it is still being observed by Paul and those with him.”
Correct: C
