CONVICTED BY THE WORD or Grace or Dishonor?

1 Kings_18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if YaHVaH be Sovereign, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.
And the people answered him not a word.

Micah 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth YaHVaH require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy Sovereign?

Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Jer_6:15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith YaHVaH.
TREES, TREES, TREES
IsaiYaH 44:14 He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengthens for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it.
15 Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread; yea, he maketh a god, and worships it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto.
16 He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, “Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire”:
:17 And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worships it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god. (Axiom, ‘If it acts like a ‘duck’ and looks like a duck, it’s a duck’. Call a ‘spade a spade’ and do not mince words.)
:18 They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.

EATING AND DRINKING
COLOSSIANS 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances (certificate of indebtness) that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. (Messiah triumphed over animal temple sacrifices).
Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat (brosis “eating”), or in drink (posis drinking) or in respect of an feast day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
Col 2:17 Which ARE a shadow of things to come; but the body (is~ an added word) of Messiah. (Note: “IS” doesn’t belong there and the sentence would make no sense.)
Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of Sovereign is not (G 1035) “brosis” eating and drinking (For Example: Christ-mass, New Year, Saturnalia, Easter etc) Greek 4213 “posis “drinking” but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Pure Spirit/Ruach ha Kadosh.
Galatians 4:8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not YaHVaH (Gentile, Stranger, nations) you did service unto them which by nature are no gods.

:10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.

Mat 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
2 Corinthians_11:2 For I am jealous over you with exceeding jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to The Messiah. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. (Know the enemy of YaHVaH)
Least of Commandments? Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Mat 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Two Greatest Sins Ezekiyl 20:11 And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them.
Eze 20:12 Moreover also I gave them my Sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am YaHVaH that sanctify them.
Eze 20:13 But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness: they walked not in my statutes, and they despised my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; and my Sabbaths they greatly polluted: then I said, I would pour out my fury upon them in the wilderness, to consume them.
Eze 20:15 Yet also I lifted up my hand unto them in the wilderness, that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands;
Eze 20:16 Because they despised my judgments, and walked not in my statutes, but polluted my Sabbaths: for their heart went after their idols.
Eze 20:18 But I said unto their children in the wilderness, Walk ye not in the statutes of your fathers, neither observe their judgments, nor defile yourselves with their idols:
Eze 20:19 I am YaHVaH your Elohim; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them;
Eze 20:20 And set-apart my Sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am YaHVaH your Elohim.

:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of YaHVaH, which ye shall proclaim to be pure convocations, even these are my feasts.

YeremiYah 31:31; Hebrews 8:10/10:16
Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith YaHVaH, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Elohim, and they shall be my people.
2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of Elohim standeth sure, having this seal, The Father YaHVaH knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Messiah depart from iniquity. 20But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
Since the Sabbaths are no small matter as some assume, we ought to soberly evaluate the ministry of Seventh Day Sabbath desecration [Sunday promotion].
Some of us received holy communion and Mass with the best of intentions, but as babes, we participated in the Roman rites not realizing the danger. We are concerned with abiding in Spiritual truth, faith, belief and the love of YaHVaH.
Honor the annual Passover Supper on the 14th of Aviv, to correct the error of monthly communion. His Name YaHVaH should be spelled thus, His Feasts, His Laws or Torah, His Resurrection on Aviv 17, and further, the popular but poor Eternal Security “once saved, always saved, no matter what”. It is high time to come out of spiritual dormancy. Speak the truth. Other substitutions need to be restored to the original Words, intents, purposes and in the Spirit.
Put away pride and unscholarly assumptions. Put on the Word of YaHVaH.
Mark 2:27 And he said unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath..
Know your Enemy

Hebrews_1:13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
10:13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
Revelation_11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
YaH's Wrath on Unrighteousness
Rom 1:18 " For the wrath of YaH is revealed from heaven against all unYaHVaH-likness and unrighteousness of men. In unrighteousness they suppress the truth, because what can be known about YaH is plain to them—for YaH has shown it to them.
:20 His invisible attributes—His eternal power and His divine nature—have been clearly seen ever since the creation of the world, being understood through the things that have been made. So people are without excuse—
:21 for even though they knew YaH, they did not glorify Him as YaH or give Him thanks. Instead, their thinking became futile, and their senseless hearts were made dark.
:22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools.
:23 They exchanged the glory of the immortal YaH for an image in the form of mortal man and birds and four-footed beasts and creeping things."
Be convinced, convicted and converted to YaHOSHA Messiah by the Spirit.
