News and New Articles

Our Earth, is it Flat or a Sphere? This article analyses the main Biblical and Scientific arguments in favour of Flat and Spherical models for the Earth. Many of the flat earth arguments are taken from Jeremy James' True Cosmology article. The Flat Earth models are examined in greater depth than commonly seen, revealing that Jehovah God does not require us to believe in a flat earth and that the flat earth science is badly flawed.

The Proposed "Fixed Easter" Calendar This article analyses the likely motives behind the renewed push for a "fixed" Easter calendar. Why are the Roman Catholic based churches working together to 'authorise' a new way to calculate their dates for Easter? Their most likely motive is their intense revulsion towards Jehovah God and His true Holy Days.

The Holy Bible This is the updated third edition of the CHCP version of the Holy Bible released on 18 June, 2016. The New Covenant is now based on the Aramaic Peshitta as we have become convinced that Aramaic is both the original language of Joshua and the Apostles and the language the inspired New Covenant was written in. This makes the Greek manuscripts a translation from the Aramaic. The Peshitta restores God's Name and clarifies many previously puzzling passages in the NC.

God's Calendar and the Sign of Jonah This is a major update of our God's Calendar and the Sign of Jonah article which demonstrates how Jesus (Joshua) fulfilled the three days and three nights that He said would prove He was both the Son of God and our Saviour. By doing so, it exposes the Antichrists and reveals some of their deepest deceptions which lie at the heart of the Great Apostasy.

Eternal Life is God's Gift! - Updated version: Does the Bible teach that you have eternal life? What happens to you when you die? What must you do to receive eternal life?

Jesus Christ - Is He the Son of God or Part of a Trinity? - Expanded version: Explores the relationships between God the Father, our Lord Joshua the Messiah, the Holy Spirit and us.

Jehovah God's Holy Days to 2034 These charts provide a summary of Jehovah's Holy Days from 2012 to 2034 to the extent that they can be calculated.


God's Holy Days for 2016

This has indeed proven to be a very complex year. Brian Convery's team have decided that
there will be Abib barley ready in two weeks, and have accepted this New Moon as the
beginning of the New Year. They say that despite the cold winter, the recent hot weather
has pushed the barley ahead rapidly. In contrast, Nehemiah Gordon's team have declared
there will not be any Abib barley ready this month and are inserting an extra month.
The weather forecast for Israel does not clarify this situation, indicating mostly cooler,
but also mostly sunny weather for the next two weeks.
We are posting both alternatives for this year's Holy Days. Personally, I am accepting
Brian's prediction that there will be sufficient Abib barley within two weeks.
The New Moon has been confirmed and I am now celebrating the New Year.

Update on 22 March: Brian Hoeck has sent in photos of barley fields now ready for harvest.
It has been pleasing to have this early start to the Biblical year confirmed like this.

Update on 3 September: The New Moon has been seen, so the NH Autumn Holy Days listed below are the correct dates for 2016.

If you accept the presence of early Abib barley, the Holy Days are:
These Holy Day dates are for Israel and regions westward to the International Date Line.

be affected like this one is in 2024.


The Heart of God and God's Law This simple chart clearly shows that God's Law has originated in God's Heart.


Free to Obey God Jesus has freed us from our body of sin and death. Now we can at last truly Love God and His Law. This article shows us what the Bible teaches about how to avoid both legalism and lawlessness and joyfully walk that narrow path that leads to eternal life.

Clean and Unclean Animals from a Christian Perspective Many Christians believe that God has removed His prohibition on unclean meat for them. But the Bible clearly teaches that God's prohibition has not been removed.

The Age of the Earth - How old is the Earth? What do the Bible and Science have to say about this issue? An excellent article by David Reeve.

Children - Things We Throw Away?? An honest look at abortion and its effects on the mother and baby. (By Melody Green Sievright)

The Irrational Atheist Download This Online book by Vox Day thoroughly demonstrates that the main anti-God/anti-religion arguments of modern atheists are not only illogical, but can be easily proven to be factually wrong. He gleefully dissects the vacuous arguments of Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Dennett and Michel Onfray. Vox reveals that atheism has resulted in more intolerance and mass murder than any religion known to man. Though I think Vox has understated the viciousness of Roman Catholicism, his central arguments still stand.

The Oirgin and History of the Doctrine of Endless Punishment Thomas Thayer's classic book on how Endless Punishment became part of what many churches teach, despite it being contrary to the true nature of Jehovah God as revealed in the Bible. This pdf was provided by lighthouselibrary.com

Homosexuality How does one become a homosexual? How can a homosexual be helped? (By Mark Copeland)

The Gift of Salvation - Briefly recounts the experiences of Charles Chiniquy, a well-known priest in the Catholic Church for 50 years. (By Charles Chiniquy)

Resolving the Passover Controversy Stanford Beattie presents clear evidence that the Passover was correctly sacrificed in the late afternoon of the 14th of Abib, rather than at the start of the 14th as some believe.

Rome's Challenge: Why do Protestants Keep Sunday? - This document is a reprint of four articles originally published in the Catholic Mirror over one hundred years ago. In the articles, the Catholic Church shows that there is no scriptural basis for accepting the first day of the week as the Christian Sabbath. They claim that the only basis for the change from the seventh day Sabbath is found in the traditions of the Catholic Church. The author concludes that if Protestants accept their change in the Day of Worship, they must also accept the authority of the Catholic Church in all things to be consistant.

The International Date Line and God's Sabbaths - Did God establish our International Date Line? Could the IDL be keeping you from observing God's Sabbaths on the correct days? An important and thought-provoking article written by Samuel V. Mercado.

Genetics: Enemy of Evolution Does Mendelian genetics support the hypothesis of evolution, or is it in greater harmony with the hypothesis of Creation? (By Lane Lester, Ph.D.)
