Greetings to each and everyone.
I trust that each and everyone of you did make the effort to be in attendance
at the Sunday 15th June 2008 Bible annual Sabbath Pentecost (50th day) Feast of Weeks/Harvest/First
as I and others of like faith did. It was great and quite inspirational at Yahweh's
Assembly in Yahshua (YAIY)
where I congregated with others of like faith in observance of this special time that our
Creator has commanded us to observe and hallow as well. The most inspiritual part of the morning service is the main/second
message which was preached by Elder John Felix Thomas of Yahweh's Evangelical Ministry
Included in his delivery was bringing to the fore the striking connections/resemblence between the occurrence in Exodus 19-20
and Acts 2 that the display that was involved with the giving of the Ten Commandments rather is indicative of the fact that
this occurred on what is known in the New Testament as the day of Pentecost
the display that was involved with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2 is of similarity to that in Exodus 19-20. Both
these incidents indeed occurred in the same Bible third month Sivan rather on the same Pentecost
(50th day) Feast of Weeks
even if some might avoid such a conclusion, sighting that such an affirmation is no where
found in the Old Testament first recorded incident of the giving of the Ten Commandments in Exodus 19-20.
But we were
indeed faced with extremely hot weather for this year's Bible third moon/month Sivan. Sooner the Bible third moon/month began,
we were into the hurricane season from the beginning of June as is the norm, leaving us to be affected by a Tropical Wave
island wide yesterday and today as a result of which, the sky was totally overcast today down into this evening thus hindering
the possibility of seeing whether or not that the new moon beginning the Bible fourth month became visible this evening which
I searched for from sunset time of 6:40pm until 7:41pm but saw nothing else than a totally overcast sky.
I wish each
and all an enjoyable new moon day of 24 hours beginning from this evening sunset if
the new moon indeed became visible and two or more of you out there sighted it from your locality this
I thank Yahweh for a first new moon reporting from India (see below) accompanying this reporting.
It was sent to me by a 16-year-old Bible devoted Indian male youth at 9:15am this morning via http://OnlineBibleChat.mobile.web.tr
where new moon alerts are posted each month to the membership/users there as well as the general public.
and Yahweh bless,

Today is Thursday. I am outside my home searching for the new
moon on the sky but I can't see it. It is invisible here.
