We had a great conference here in Minneapolis the first week end in April. Many of you also watched it online. The videos are posted online here:
I believe that this will be our last conference here in Minneapolis, at least for the foreseeable future. We are currently making arrangements to host a Tabernacles conference in Branson, Missouri (or nearby). If we are able to make the arrangements, we will have a three-day conference on the week end of October 2-4, 2015.
I will keep you informed on our progress.
The main focus of this conference was to bear witness of the coronation of the Overcomers for the Age to come. The coronation was done Sunday morning, April 5.
Darla and I will be flying to Holland April 20, where I will be teaching in various locations for about two weeks.
As usual, my sons will take care of the office work while we are gone.
Having finished the books on Luke, I put a smaller book into print called The Two Covenants. This is a 38-page booklet with six chapters. It is the result of a series of weblog articles that I posted last February. It is priced at $3.00 each. This book shows the difference between the Old and the New Covenants, primarily how the Old Covenant was based upon man’s vow to God, while the New Covenant is based on the promises (vows) of God to man.
The final chapter deals with the two swords—physical and spiritual. The physical sword was used under the Old Covenant to establish the kingdom under Joshua. The spiritual sword (i.e., the sword of the Spirit) is used under the New Covenant to establish the Kingdom under Yeshua, Jesus Christ.
It is crucial to understand the difference, so that we do not fall back under the Old Covenant mindset, thinking that the Kingdom can be established by violence and force. The Israelis today, who reject the New Covenant and its Mediator, are attempting to establish the kingdom with violence and force against the Palestinians. Unfortunately, many Christians support this and think this method will succeed. But once we have learned the difference between the two covenants, we will be able to repent (adjust our thinking) and come into better alignment with the New Covenant and the mind of Christ.
