The following link is where the download is for the powerpoint presentations from the recent camp meeting in Terra Bella. #3 and #8 have no videos because the files were too big for our internet connection to upload. Both are available on my Youtube Page.
If you’ve seen these presentations already, you know the value and importance of them and what time it is. If you haven’t seen them, go to the following link and 4 of the 8 of them are up for viewing already. Another will be up tomorrow. 4 more are still to be uploaded over the next couple weeks. And I will be updating all on my mailing list as they go up.
I currently am making DVD’s of these presentations and sending them out to people. If you haven’t already ordered some, reply back to me and I will send you some as well as some of the DVD’s on the Judgments are falling and No Man Might Buy or Sell. The information in these presentations is vital and we need to be established in the present truth and get this information to the people as quickly as possible. Time is short.
As for the camp meetings in Terra Bella, the time together was absolutely a complete blessing from beginning to end. Though there are many differing opinions, it seems that at these times the Spirit especially is working to bring us into unity on differing points. Not even a semblance of strife or unrest was seen at this feast.
In the book of Zechariah chapter 10 and verse 1 we are told to “ask in the time of the latter rain” for rich outpourings of our Father’s Spirit. And our Father has shown us “that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain… that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.” (Zech 14:17) Jerusalem being a symbol of His people and church. (Heb 12:22, 23, Gal 4:26, Revelation 12:1)
The Spirit was inspiring the messages during this time which were truly uplifting and inspired true repentance in many, and the testimony of most, even those who have been attending feasts for many years was that this was the very best feast they had ever been to.
“We should improve every opportunity of placing ourselves in the channel of blessing. . . . The convocations of the church, as in camp meetings, the assemblies of the home church, and all occasions where there is personal labor for souls, are God’s appointed opportunities for giving the early and the latter rain.”(Ellen White FLB 246)
Seventeen souls went into the baptismal waters at these meetings, including two former General Conference pastors who acknowledged that “by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body,” (1 Cor 12:13) and that this one body is “the church”(Eph 1:22,23). And therefore acknowledged that “God has a church”. It is “the fullness of Him that filleth all in all”(Eph 1:23). And that love and beauty of character was shining through all in these meetings. The beautiful Spirit of God alone constitutes His Church.(See Upward Look Page 315).
This is where our minds receive the polish necessary to fit us up a spiritual house. Where the angels are commissioned to work, not with independent atoms, but with those who will allow the blessing of Abraham to flow out their bellies like living waters. Who have not placed their dependence upon human power, but upon the spirit of the living God. (1 SM 204-7)
Zec 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
“Those who shut themselves up within themselves, who are unwilling to be drawn upon to bless others by friendly associations, lose many blessings; for by mutual contact minds receive polish and refinement; by social intercourse, acquaintances are formed and friendships contracted which result in a unity of heart and an atmosphere of love which is pleasing in the sight of heaven.” (Ellen White 6T 172.2)
The friendships contracted here have resulted in a beautiful unity of heart and spirit which is well pleasing in the sight of heaven. I have formed friendships that I believe will last forever. I’ve met new friends and family that I look forward to seeing again very shortly.
In all there were over forty five presentations during the nine days. Eight of which I shared myself including topics concerning the character of our Father such as the covenants, the judgments, what it is to take up our cross, and the truth about our Father’s love in giving His only begotten Son and how this relates to the seal of God and the mark of the beast. Also a message health and how it relates to the mark of the beast and the seal of God.
I also opened the feast with a message about the importance of Holy Convocations, and from the very opening of the feast, tears were shed, repentance was had, and the Spirit of God was uniting us all in the bond of peace. God was working upon the hearts at these meetings and at the end of the feast two presentations were given on the abomination of desolation in Revelation 17 which explained to us the urgency of the loud cry that is now going forth, and that there are a people that are lightening the earth with the glory of God and that the latter rain message is sealing God’s people.
Some of these messages are up now on my youtube channel, and some are still to come. They can be viewed at the following link. Be sure to subscribe.
I have been invited back for the spring feast to speak again at the feast of unleavened bread. It is only 6 months away, and a lot could happen between now and then. But I believe our Father would like us all to be together again, and if God wills, I am looking forward to that time when I can come together again in sweet fellowship with my brothers and sisters who are working to put forth a message concerning the soon coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Please plan to attend as by no means should we miss these important occasions for receiving the latter and the former rain.
“Anciently the Lord instructed His people to assemble three times a year for His worship. ..through their association together in this sacred service they were to be bound closer to God and to one another. In the days of Christ these feasts were attended by vast multitudes of people from all lands; and had they been kept as God intended, in the spirit of true worship, the light of truth might through them have been given to all the nations of the world.
The Lord saw that these gatherings were necessary for the spiritual life of His people. They needed to turn away from their worldly cares, to commune with God, and to contemplate unseen realities. If the children of Israel needed the benefit of these holy convocations in their time, how much more do we need them in these last days of peril and conflict!” (Ellen White 6T 39-40)
If you would like copies of the presentations or even the powerpoints, you can let me know, as I am working earnestly to get these messages to the people as quickly as possible, as I believe that time is of the essence.
May our Father lead you into making the decision to come up to the feast and be blessed by the mutual contact in the spring, to have fellowship, and friendships that will last into eternity. Much love, Brother David.
