The March-April issue of the Restoration Times magazine is now available to read online. In this latest publication we visit the ancient city of Capernaum and explore the meaning of faith. We also take an in-depth look at the biblical calendar and explain why we cannot rely on the modern Jewish calendar to determine the biblical Feasts. We also explore a key prophecy in Zephaniah verifying a return to a global and pure language in the millennial Kingdom. Lastly, we explain the real meaning behind the gift of tongues and show why the practice as seen in many charismatic churches lacks any biblical support. We hope to mail copies as a “thank you” to our financial supporters next week. Read here>>
“Yehovah Deception” Booklet
Our Yehovah Deception article is now available in booklet format and free of charge upon request. In this booklet we dispel the pronunciation “Yehovah” that is gaining popularity within the Hebrew Roots and Messianic movements. We explain the origins of this counterfeit along with several contradictions. For example, that while many advocates of “Yehovah” will point out that this pronunciation is found within Masoretic manuscripts (9th century and later), they will not share that many other pronunciations are also found within these same documents, including: “Yehwah,” “Yehowah,” “Yehowih,” Yehuwih,” “Yehowih,” and “Yehwih.” Another oversight with this hybrid is the fact that the Masoretes used not only the vowel points from Adonai to conceal the true pronunciation of Yahweh, but also did the same with the vowel points from Elohim. In addition to dispelling the myth of Yehovah, we also show scholarly evidence for “Yahweh” from multiple sources and hundreds of years before any manuscripts with “Yehovah.” Request booklet >>
YRM continues to make excellent progress on our activities building. The plumbing, wiring, and HVAC have been installed on the lower floor, including restrooms and showers. The first floor rooms have been insulated for sound and temperature and the drywall is being installed on the entire lower floor. Several volunteers have been helping with most phases of the construction (framing, electrical, plumbing) and even joined in making bunk bed frames for the sleeping rooms. The activity building will not only provide space for indoor activities throughout the year, but also crucial meeting space and activities for Feasts and other events.
One Week to Passover
With only one week remaining, we warmly invite you to this year’s Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread in Holts Summit from the evening of March 31 – April 8. There are still plenty of tent and RV sites available. These observances promise to be a blessing for all in attendance. We have scheduled several worship services, Bible workshops, and activities, including volleyball, bingo, board games, open gym time, and much more. For those unable to be here in person, we will be broadcasting our Passover service (7:30 p.m., Central), the first and last High days, and weekly Sabbath. As a side note, those who partake of the Passover emblems must be baptized into “Yahshua’s” name, which, for those interested, we can provide on the Sabbath before the Passover. To learn more, visit us online.

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
In what book does Paul speak about the Passover and keeping the Feast?
A . Romans
Paul in 1Corinthians 5:7-8 states, “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” Not only does Paul confirm that Yahshua is our Passover, but emphatically states that we are to observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread. This passage, along with many others, verifies that Yahweh’s Feast days are still valid in the New Testament.
