About The Conference


Preparing the hearts of the overcomers to rule the Kingdom

There were two Passovers each year in Israel. The main feast was celebrated in the middle of the first month on the Hebrew calendar. But a year after Israel left Egypt, a question arose, because some people had buried their father and had therefore touched a dead body and were unclean. It would require a full week for them to purify themselves. Hence, they were ineligible to keep Passover. So Moses asked God for a Supreme Court decision in Numbers 9:9-11,

9 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 10 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘If any one of you or of your generations becomes unclean because of a dead person, or is on a distant journey, he may, however, observe the Passover to the Lord. 11 In the second month on the fourteenth day at Twilight, they shall observe it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs’.”

So those who were ineligible to keep Passover at the normal time were allowed to keep it a month later. Since Passover teaches us the principles of justification by faith in the blood of the Lamb, this law of the second Passover prophesies of a second opportunity to be justified by faith. That, of course, will occur at the Great White Throne, when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess allegiance to Him (Philippians 2:1011). This is not “second chance” salvation, as some have called it. “Chance” has nothing to do with it. It is a statement of fact, and when all men see the glory of God upon His great throne, all men will then know the truth, and they will confess Him as Lord.

From a historical standpoint, Jesus’ death on the cross fulfilled the main prophecies of Passover, and since that time, people have been keeping the feast by placing their faith in Him as the Lamb of God who died for the sin of the world. But the vast majority of mankind have not done so, and throughout the past 2,000 years, most people outside of Europe and Mideast never even heard of Jesus Christ. They were “on a distant journey” from God, cut off from the Truth. So God in His wisdom made provision for them at the Great White Throne.

The second Passover also applies to the second work of Christ, the evening sacrifice, the autumn feasts, and other aspects of the law. For us, it applies to our time, for we look toward the second manifestation of Christ in the earth. It is my understanding that this is the reason God is having us meet a month later than usual for our Passover conference. It represents the Second Passover, foreshadowing a greater harvest that is to come.

Major changes are upon us these days. We have a new president, who is causing shock waves throughout the old Babylonian system worldwide. The rulers of Babylon are doing all they can through the mainstream media (which their people own) to try to reverse this, but I am confident that they will fail. Even so, the president needs prayer, not only for protection, but also for wisdom. He is currently being advised by mainstream Christian leaders, who do not have a proper understanding of the laws of God.

Right now the president is considering whether or not to reinstate torture as a means to protect America from enemies. At the same time, he knows that God is our Protector. This inherent contradiction has been part of Church policy for many centuries, and it is time that Christians understand that if God is indeed our Protector, we must follow His laws of war. This requires faith that those laws will actually work. Torture is not part of the law of God, because God is love, and inflicting pain for the sake of intelligence gathering is unlawful.

In centuries past, when the Church did its own waterboarding to force heretics to recant their beliefs and submit to the men of the Church, they justified their actions by claiming it was for the good of the heretics and for the Church. They did not acknowledge their own failures as a cause for “heresy.” They presumed that the Church Councils had established truth, even though nearly all of them were filled with carnality, bribery, threats, and even murder. In establishing truth by means of the carnal mind and carnal tactics, they succeeded only in establishing the traditions of men, and so they cast down the law of God by their traditions. Their use of torture proves this.

So please pray for the president that he will receive the revelation of God about righteous government. And also we must pray for a genuine outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the people in general, for only this will make righteous government sustainable in the long run. If the majority of the people demand the right to sin, the Kingdom of God is yet far away. If the Christian leaders continue to demand the right to veto whatever law of God they disagree with, righteous government will elude us.

Explanation of the Two Locations

The location for our Passover conference (May 12-14) had to be changed, because the DoubleTree hotel in Joplin is being renovated, and construction problems came up. The sales manager called at the end of February, telling me (Dr. Jones) that they wouldn’t be able to open for business in time for our conference.

This was an inconvenience for all of us, of course. I apologize for the change. The sales manager tried to find another place locally where we might meet, but she was unable to find anything.

But then, unexpectedly, the sales manager at the local DoubleTree hotel here in Minneapolis called to see if she might arrange a future conference for us. I asked her if May 12-14 was open, and she said that it was. So we have now confirmed the hotel meeting room to hold our conference at the same hotel where we have met a few times before.

The theme will remain the same: Cleansing the Heart of America

It appears that God first led us to Joplin to draw our attention to this theme. It was the same last year when the theme was The Open Door. We thought that we would hold the conference in Duluth, MN, but that did not work out, although the theme was set by the name Duluth (dalet, or daleth in Hebrew is an open door).
