Apostle Malm is laying his theology for his cult out plain and simple for all to see. The more laws you keep the better God will like you, any maybe even Jesus too. And, if you are really, really good at keeping ALL the law then maybe God might send a little portion of hte Holy Spirit to you. Be careful though, you can loose the HS at your slightest sin.
Apostle Malm is commanding that the DUB and FT are to be kept in their entirety without any work for any sort. You can fix simple meals and do 'necessary' things, but no work! Apostle Malm is like so many in the various harlot daughters that are trying to revert back to the original teachings of HWA. HWA originally held seven day UB's where people traveled to Belknap Springs, OR for UB for seven days. Then in the fall they traveled for eight days for the FOT.
Apostle Malm seems to think his words carry some kind of weight in COGdom. He, and he alone, is the only person really preaching the truth now. UCG, COGWA, LCG, PCG, etc are all wishy-washy compromising sinners who fail to keep every single law his 'god' demands.
Yesterday I introduced the fact the the Feast of Unleavends is commanded to be observed for a full seven days.
So all of you pagan COG churches out there that only keep the first and last days of UB and then send everyone home to do their normal work are heretics and grievous sinners! You are sending your members home so they can enjoy the every day things in life that they do all the time instead of sitting in a sweltering Odd Fellow's Hall listening to some uneducated preacher drone on and on for three miserable hours about nothing.
The Feast of Unleavends is the seven days during which Israel journeyed out of Egypt. For five full days they traveled and on the night beginning the sixth day the wind blew all through the night dividing the Red Sea and providing a means of escape. On the sixth day Israel entered the sea and passed over dry shod. As the sixth day ended Israel looked back for their persuers and the persuers were nowhere to be seen; having been swallowed up by the sea. Then began the seventh day; a High Holy Day of great rejoicing over the victory given by God.
Notice; On the first day [a High Holy Day] they left their homes in Egypt and they were fleeing for the whole six days to rejoice on the seventh. They did NOT just observe the First and Last Days! On EVERY day they were fleeing and that has its lessons for us; this Feast is not just about two days; it is about the whole seven days.
The only 'work' you are permitted to do according to Apostle Malm, is seven days of intensive Bible study.
When we return to doing our own thing during the intervening days: Where are our minds focused? Where are our hearts and spirits truly focused? Certainly not exclusively on God! God wants our attention so that he can spend time with us and teach and rejoice with him; and we can be with each other; encouraging and learning from one another! How Wonderful!
The whole seven days are a time to be spent with God in intense study; drinking in the very mind of Christ through study, fellowship and mutual spiritual instruction and support. Yes this pictures the need to put sin OUT and take Christ IN throughout our lives; if we do not do this through the Feast; that picture pales and is greatly diminished. We do this through the WHOLE seven days as a proper picture of the need to do so without slacking, throughout our lives.
Only work essential for the Festival such as food preparation and basic needs should be done during the Non Sabbath days of the Spring and Fall Festivals.
More disrupted school days for your kids. More jobs lost because you will need a SECOND vacation for religious reasons. On and on the legalistic list of unnecessary rules and regulations goes and the ramifications it has on those people who decide to follow this silliness. More 'martyrs' for the 'word' of another fake 'apostle.'
