Year of FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE'S Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary.




Editor's Note: This information about the Fiftieth Year--the Jubilee Year--is presented to the readers of Enlightenment so as to enlighten them with respect to the special magnitude of the present year 1996--and with respect to the unmistakable connection the Fiftieth Anniversary of FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE'S Wedding in 1946 has to the Jubilee Year.

FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE were married in the year of 1946. In the year of 1996, they will have been married Fifty Years! What a fantastic fifty years--when all the incredible events of those years are considered!

A Fiftieth Anniversary is known as the Golden Anniversary, and is suggestive of the richness and splendor of gold, and suggestive of a time of Peace and Calm and Spiritual Blossoming. It signals the completion of a long evolutionary process--the halfway milestone in the march toward achieving a Century of evolution and progress, tinged with the illumination of the Golden Glow of Fulfillment!

It is remarkable that the Fiftieth Year of FATHER DIVINE'S Marriage to His Spotless Bride--the year which we are currently enjoying--has somewhat of a counterpart in Israelite history. In Leviticus 25:8, GOD continues to impart to Moses what to tell his people:

'And thou shalt number seven Sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years: and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.

Verse 12: For it is the jubilee: it shall be holy unto you.

Verse 18: Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety. "






In Leviticus, according to Scofield--a noted Biblical scholar--is laid the foundation for the cleansing and the worship of a redeemed people, and it gives details of how this people walks and serves the LORD. GOD speaks out of the tabernacle in the midst of the people, in which HE dwells, to tell them what befits His Holiness in their communion with HIM, because a Holy GOD must have a people that is cleansed. The word "Holiness" is the key word of Leviticus; it is found 87 times in the 27 chapters of Leviticus.

"Holiness" is also a key word with respect to the Marriage of FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE. FATHER DIVINE declared that the purpose of His Marriage is to propagate--not physical offspring--but to propagate and spread throughout the land--Virtue, Holiness, Honesty, Competence, Truth and Brotherhood--by people being loving and being kind to their brothers and sisters, by being honest in their every day dealings and by being truthful in their deeds and expressions. It is plain to see that the`followers of FATHER DIVINE are a cleansed people, and they are redeemed from the degeneracy of present day worldly living.

After the seven Sabbaths of years--seven times seven equals forty nine--comes the Fiftieth Year. The Forty Ninth Anniversary of the Marriage was celebrated in April of last year Therefore, we are now in the Fiftieth Year which, according to Leviticus, shall be hallowed.

It is entirely appropriate that immediately following the decree that the fiftieth year shall be hallowed, GOD said "--and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof"--which of course, is the inscription embossed on the cap of the Liberty Bell, the Nation's most sacred symbol. GOD'S people must be free, and that is the purpose for which FATHER DIVINE came--to give people their liberty from lack and limitation, from vice and crime, and from the mental and spiritual slavery of worn out traditions and hereditations. In Israel likewise, during the fiftieth year, slaves were set free.

A jubilee is a special, joyful Anniversary Celebration, set aside for the purpose of rejoicing--and glorifying GOD. Therefore, the followers of FATHER DIVINE are buoyant during the Fiftieth Golden Jubilee Year, because of their emancipation from man's law--and their entering into a New Dispensation under GOD'S Law.

On April 29, 1996, there will be an extremely jubilant Marriage Anniversary Celebration in Peace Missions all over the world where followers of FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE are found. All the followers, from this moment on, will turn their eyes and minds to that date in this year of 1996. They will continue to cleanse themselves more diligently, and get their Wedding Garments of Salvation in readiness, so that when that day comes, they will be clothed with the Righteousness of Saints, worthy to partake of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb

All followers and friends of the Peace Mission Movement are cordially invited to make the Pilgrimage to Philadelphia, the Country Seat of the World, to be with the Lamb and the Bride Personally for this most Auspicious Occasion. As the song proclaims,

"We're going to have a Hallelujah Time on the Twenty Ninth!
