Letter to our Friends - April 23, 2021


Leonard V. Johnson

Greetings friends from Spring Hill, Florida – on the West Coast.

Second Passover

This month – April 25th at sunset is the 14th day of Iyyar on the Hebrew calendar. Those who were unable to keep the LORD’S Passover on the 14th of Nisan/Abib are indeed authorized by God’s living word to keep the LORD’s Passover then –

This is based upon the Book of Numbers chapter 9 –
“Now the LORD spoke to Moses in the Wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying, 2) ‘Let the children of Israel keep the Passover at its appointed time. 3) On the fourteenth day of this month, at twilight, you shall keep it at its appointed time. According to all its rites and ceremonies you shall keep it.’ 4) So Moses told the children of Israel that they should keep the Passover. 5) And they kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the first month, at twilight, … 9) Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 10) ‘Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘If anyone of you or your posterity is unclean … or is far away on a journey, he may still keep the LORD’S Passover. 11) On the fourteenth day of the second month, at twilight, they may keep it. They shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. …’” – Numbers 9:1-13, NKJV.

Indeed, if you are a baptized member of the Body of Christ and were unable to keep the LORD’S Passover on the 14th of Nisan/Abib – Leviticus 23 – you can certainly keep the LORD’S Passover after sunset on April 25th. For a suggested Passover Service may I recommend –

Prayer Requests:

Please Pray for Minister Guy LaMar’s brother-in-law. He was rushed to the hospital last Friday. He’s been battling stage 4 cancer of the Prostate, kidneys and it’s believed in the brain and bones. Up until a few weeks ago he had been doing really good.

Also, please continue your prayers for Minister Michael C. Garrett, who is apparently battling a terrible sore throat and is not feeling well. Please pray that God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ will quickly heal him of this terrible trouble.

Please continue your prayers for Roger and Gladys Kreke. For God’s strength and mighty healing hands to be laid upon them!

Also, a brother and friend Rohit Sarkar asks for our prayers in Bangladesh –

“How are you brother i hope you are well and your family is healthy pray for us for our bangladesh now we are in great danger we are in lockdown.”

Big Tech – Facebook

Last week I had mentioned that two of our videos posted on our Facebook page have been “banned” due to “Copyright” issues – even though they had been posted over a year and a half ago. One is entitled “The Truth Concerning the Trinity Explained.” I had issued a dispute concerning this one and received an answer about an hour ago, saying, “Warner Music Group Rights Management accepted your dispute and released their claim.” Then, turned around and blocked two more of our videos for “copyright issues.” “Kyrie” and “Amazing Grace, My Chains Are Gone.” Now, I’m not going to play this game with Facebook – We’re just going to post these videos to our YouTube channel to be made available.


Now, while we will indeed continue to use YouTube – which has a record of shadow banning – we recently added Rumble as an additional platform for some of our videos.

Here is this week's suggested Sabbath service:

● 2 hymns. (a hymn site for printable hymns is “The Old Time Gospel”). Also, note G.C. LaMar’s spiritual songs!

World News Items – let me check my teletype

On Wednesday, April 21st, Israel was placed on high alert after alarms went off near Israel’s Dimona nuclear reactor site. (See: ‘Israel strikes back at Syria after Dimona nuclear reactor missile alert’). In God’s living Word, is a future two-fold prophecy concerning peoples that appear to be within modern-day Iran (Elam) as well as modern-day Syria (Kir; see Isaiah 15:1) which will ultimately gravely damage the tiny nation of Israel in this end time –

Let’s turn in our Bible to the Book of Isaiah chapter 22

Verse 6 – “Elam bore the quiver With chariots of men and horsemen, And Kir uncovered the shield. 7) It shall come to pass that your choicest valleys Shall be full of chariots, And the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate.”

Continuing with verses 8 & 9 – “He [Almighty God] removed the protection of JUDAH. You looked in that day to the armor of the House of the Forest; 9) You also saw the damage to the city of David, That it was great; …”

Grave death and destruction are coming to the modern nation of Israel. Removing sanctions could be interpreted by Iran or Israel to attack militarily against one another.

A regional war in the Middle East is on the horizon.

Ramadan riots are continuing in Jerusalem (See: ‘Israeli Driver’s Warning Shot Prevents Lynching by Arab Rioters in Downtown Jerusalem’). The Arabs in Jerusalem self-identify themselves as – the largest and fastest-growing proportion – “Palestinian in Israel,” or “Palestinian Arab” – rejecting altogether the identity of Israel and a sovereign nation. Many Shi’ite Muslims (which is what most Iranians are), as well as many Sunnis, believe that a leader called the Imam Mahdi will rise from a well after a period of great chaos. And, since this COVID-19 is causing great chaos around the world, some Shi’ites want to increase that chaos. While this supposed leader does NOT truly exist, God’s living Word – the Holy Bible – does indeed tell of a final end-time ‘king of the South’ which will rise to power and lead a confederation of predominantly Muslim lands in the Middle East and North Africa (cf. Daniel 11:40-43; Ezekiel 30:2-8). It could be possible that Iran – the number one terrorist nation in the world – may cause many of the ‘troubles’ our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ prophesied would occur in this 11:59 hour! – see Mark 13:8.

Concluding Comments

The Book of Daniel has the following statement:

"'But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the Book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase'" - Daniel 12:4, NKJV.

When prophet Daniel was told this, they did not have steam engines, petroleum, nuclear, or even electricity.

We do now!

When prophet Daniel was told this, they did not have radios, televisions, computers, cellular telephones, or even the internet.

We do now!

When prophet Daniel was told this, there was no international power known as the United States of America - cf. Daniel 11:39.

There is now!

When prophet Daniel was told this, there was no power in Europe like the European Union, which had unity problems - cf. Daniel 2:41-43.

There is now!

There were also no people known as Christians.

There are now!

Friends, we are in the time of the end where we understand more and more of the prophecies that were sealed in the Book of Daniel. Including the soon-coming destruction of the USA (Daniel 11:39), and her Anglo-Saxon descended allies (Daniel 8:24-25), and the coming persecution of Christians (Daniel 11:28-35). People, indeed, are turning to and fro, knowledge has been increased, and we do understand more of the Book of Daniel. We are getting closer to the end of this age.

In this age when the love of many waxes cold, endure to the end - Matthew 24:13.

In deep gratitude and love, in Jesus' name,
