"IT IS HIGH TIME TO OBEY YAHVAH UNLAWFUL TEACHINGS CORRECTED"
1Kings_11:28 And the man Jeroboam was a mighty man of valour: and Solomon seeing the young man that he was industrious, he made him ruler over all the charge of the house of Joseph.
:33 After this thing Jeroboam returned not from his evil way, but made again of the lowest of the people priests of the high places: whosoever would, he consecrated him, and he became one of the priests of the high places.
13:34 And this thing became sin unto the house of Jeroboam, even to cut it off, and to destroy it from off the face of the earth.
Lev_23:39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the YAHVAH seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath. Feast of Tabernacles
1Ki_12:32 And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made.
Palm Sunday or Aviv 9?
John12:1 Then Messiah six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
John 12:12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that YaHOSHA was coming to Jerusalem,
John 12:13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of YaHVaH.
Joh 12:14 And YaHOSHA, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
John 12:15 Fear not, daughter of Tsion/Zion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.
This day would have been Aviv 8 (6 days before Aviv 14 Passover) and in that year on the Fourth day of Week (commonly 'Wednesday') Messiah made this entry into Bethany.
When the common calendar was changed to the Gregorian calendar, time jumped-ahead exactly two weeks. The order of the 'days of the week' were not lost as it picked right up with the next day. Therefore time has not been lost and can still accurately be accounted for.
If you look-up the year 321 A.D. possibly this Aviv 8 fell on a First day of the week. Constantine taking advantage of the opportunity to bring everyone together may have used that to help bring about the concept of a Palm 'Sunday'.
Many will celebrate "Palm Sunday" . Much preparation and fine ceremonies will take place. They were ushering in what they thought was the King Who would bring political freedom. Yahosha Messiah’s first coming was to bring spiritual liberty and sight to the blind.
It is the proclivity of men and of Israyl to change YaHVaH’s Set-Feasts and Sabbaths. Or in this case, to create a tradition of Palm Sunday and lay the foundation. Messiah rode the colt 6 days before (either Passover night, or Passover Feast 4/15) However, Messiah was resurrected on Aviv 17 (at the end of Sabbath of that year. This day of week varies each year, but Aviv 17 is always the seventeenth of Aviv.) Palm false Sunday was created possibly for the negating of YaHVaH's Sabbath and paving the way to the NEW LORD'S DAY. Not every teacher had the agenda of breaking the Torah.
Please try to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves in sharing the Aviv 9 concept with traditionalists. If YaHVaH opens the door for you to gently share, then proceed with ‘kid’s gloves’ (but do not be too sheepish).
Mark 11:7 and Matthew 21:8 "...they brought the colt to Messiah and cast their garments on Him, and He sat upon it. And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees and strawed them in the way.."
Scripture shows, yes they laid palm leaves and garments for YaHOSHA, but does not say this event was on Sunday. Study MattitYahu 21:2> and Yochanon/John 12. Proof it was 6 days before Passover of Aviv 14; Palm Aviv (either 8 9). So, the not-so-long-haired Messiah (He did not take a Nazarite vow) rode into Bethany on a colt NOT to proclaim that the Sabbath is no longer legitimate, and that Sunday is the new false Sabbath, but to fulfill prophecy ZechariYah 9:9.
YaHOSHA Messiah did not come to nullify the Torah but to bring us to repentance. “He will magnify the Torah and make it honorable.” IsaiYah 42:21 and Matthew 5:17, 18. Taking into account the unlawful changes were made hundreds of years ago and that people generally try to keep the Commandment in Truth and in Spirit. Tradition dies hard. There is no Palm SUNDAY.
So let us learn the Truth about the order of things, regarding Passover of YaHOSHA Messiah and His Memorial supper. Search the Word.
The Scriptures define "Discernment" in Malachi 3:18
Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth YaHVaH and him that serveth Him not.
Lev 20:26 (KJV) And ye shall be qodesh/holy/separate unto me: for I YaHVaH am separate, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine. "I have separated you from the peoples to be Mine" (Source: HalleluYaHVaH Scriptures)
1. The first purpose of the Torah is to show YaHVaH’s righteousness. He is in charge; and, we submit to Him, and die to self.
The next purpose of the Torah is to convince us of sin and our need to repent. Believers are saved unto good works (Eph. 2:10),; Torah is the Standard which is the way unto life (Psalm 1). The Torah is a blessing, and to all who keep His Word with a pure heart.
In the New Testament there are 1,050 commands. But some say, "We only have to “love” the Father and neighbor”. So is the Torah only there to condemn us?
Is it not YaHVaH's standard? Is it not proof of our love?
2. The second purpose of the Torah is that it is our compass.
And the term, "Messianic" by definition indicates that all those who ARE Messianic should believe in Messiah and be grafted into that Good Olive Tree. Romans 11
The Sabbath and Feasts are listed over thirty times from Acts to The Revelation. Hebrews 4 is the revealed Word of YaHVaH. It states that "The Seventh Day is that specific Sabbath day of rest". From the opponents of that eternal law of love, there is only silence. If YaHVaH were silent, then it would be justifiable to be silent. YaHVaH has spoken loudly and clearly in the prophets for His Seventh day (Saturday) Sabbath.
Incidentally, according to Matthew 12:40 Messiah died on the daytime portion of Aviv 14 before dusk, and rose from the grave exactly three nights and days later on Aviv 17, before Dusk. Berry's Greek Interlinear states in Matthew 28:1 "In the end of the Sabbath, As it began to grow-dusk before the First day of the week.” (Not Sunday.)
False teachings that Messiah died on Friday and rose on the First Day, cancelling His law of worship, fail to pass the Scriptural test. Messiah died on Aviv 14 and arose Aviv 17, not Friday to Sunday. See Matthew 12:38, 28:1. Aviv 14 evening is Passover, where Messiah supped and washed the emissaries’ feet. The daytime of Aviv 14 Passover Day, He was impaled and buried in the tomb before dusk. At the end of Aviv 17 He arose from the tomb as it “Began to grow dusk toward the First day of the Week”. Mary Magdelon came to the tomb the daytime of Aviv 18 and “He was not there”. He has risen. Do the math.
What is LOVE? “By this (test) we know that we love the children of YaHVaH when we love YaHVaH and keep His commandments. For THIS is the LOVE of YaHVaH that we keep His Commandments (Greek 1785 "precepts, the Law") and His Commandments are not grievous (G 926 burdensome). 1 John 5:2-3. More later about YaHVaH’s Feast days, below.
In the End: Rev 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and YaHVaH shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
Rev_21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Rev_22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of YaHVaH and of the Lamb.
Rev_22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
Joel 3:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of YaHVaH Almighty, and shall water the valley of Shittim/Acacia.
Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Annointed One also loved the assembly, and gave Himself for it;
Eph 5:26 That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27 That He might present it to himself a glorious assembly, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be Pure and without blemish.
YaHOSHA our Messiah said:
John 3:5 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of YaHVaH.
Joh_4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Feast of Last Great Day John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Heb_10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
Act_10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Pure Spirit as well as we?
Psa 65:9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of YaHVaH, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
Isa 41:17 When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I YaHVaH Almighty will hear them, I YaHVaH of Israel will not forsake them.
Isa 41:18 I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
Isa 44:3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:
Isa 44:4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.
Isa 49:8 Thus saith YaHVaH Almighty, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
Isa 49:9 That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.
Isa 49:10 They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
Isa 58:11 And YaHVaH Almighty shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
The Scriptural Feasts are a blessing; man's holidays of Halloween, New Year, Easter are a curse! JeremiYaH 10, Galatians 4 and more describe the idolatrous abominations and resultant curses.
YaHVaH’s Feasts are forever. Forever means forever.
Those who will reject the invitation(s) to the Feast are like uninvited guests. No one will force their arm and drag them to be as they say “Under the law, inheriting the curse, keeping Jewish Feasts”. But only that we compel them to be filled with the Spirit and then come together to YaHVaH’s appointments for a real convocation.
If we learn to keep Father's Torah of love we shall even know more than many teachers, Psalm 119:99-100 "..I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Thy precepts."
Where is the true Sabbath? In Genesis 1. Also Hebrews 4 reaffirms "Therefore, there remaineth a REST to the people of YaHVaH." "He specified a certain day...that Seventh Day; He spoke not of another day." Romans 8:7 Those who reject Messiah are in rebellion “..Not subject to the Law of YaHVaH, neither indeed can be." Psalm 19 (all): "The Law of YaHVaH is perfect converting the soul." Psalm 119 "Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not Thy statutes..for all Thy commandments are righteousness..Every one of Thy righteous judgments, His Commandments, Statutes and Judgments endureth for ever." Discernment comes from studying, believing, knowing and living the Word.
Yahvah does not ask us to do some "UN-reasonable service"
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of YaHVaH, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, Pure, acceptable unto YaHVaH, which is your reasonable service.
Some call themselves prophets and say, "A prophet can only be corrected by someone who has equal or greater status." Thus they are completely uncorrectable by most believers.
Perhaps they will accuse the true teacher of having a "religious spirit" and "the accuser of the brethren". The religious spirit is generally applied to anyone who attempts to ask questions. You become painted as someone who is stuck in the 'old wineskins'. Their lack of understanding of Torah and all of Scripture is apparent.
Why is Torah written in Scriptures and why is it falsely called “Old Jewish bondage?" If we are the tribe of Ephraim and reject Messiah and His Law. then we deserve the curses, wars and internment camps.
As we read the precious Word, the Mountain of Spices and learn that YaHVaH’s Feasts are right, rejoicing the heart (Psalm 19) and kept in the millennium (IsaiYah 66:22-23) there is no need to wait for feelings to convict us, nor if someone else is taking the lead to follow the trend. Feelings FOLLOW not LEAD us in hearing and obeying the Word.
There is nothing about "tarry until we feel convicted". We have bleached-out our conscience for many years. But we should obey when we are told in The Word. The Hebrews did not need to tarry. They simply said, "Yes, we will obey" Exodus 24:7.
Messiah did not say in Matthew on the Mount, "Wait until you are convicted or until you FEEL that it is true" but with no delayed obedience we turn our hearts toward home, in pure love. I will admit it took plenty of Pure Spirit conviction to give-up that pagan tree, that pork chop, bacon and ham. Paul wished that "We all be of the same faith, and speak the SAME word." Ignorance is not bliss. "Men and brethren, I have lived in good conscience before you to this day" Acts 20:20. James says "Be not only hearers, but doers." But they said, "We shall be hearers but not doers". Paul says in Romans 12 it is not our unreasonable service, but reasonable service.
Should I be unconvicted and disobedient? Or should we be convicted and obedient? But I might have 'felt' "I do not FEEL convicted of not wearing TziTzis (and hat for priests)" Or "I'm not convicted of wrong lust". The concept leads us to believe that we are not obligated to obey unless we “feel” conviction.
YaHVaH is not the author of confusion in the worship service but of a pure and righteous Spirit. The True Spirit is effective in converting heart and mind .
In response to some neo-Protestant teaching that “If you keep the law, you cannot be saved; you cannot do good works and be saved” we believe this: Eph 2:8 Salvation not by works of righteousness but by unmerited favor (common word: grace) and by His mercy He saved us through His Son YaHOSHA. Only by that bloody offering on the Tree at Calvary can we be saved. Anyone who seeks to climb-up to the sheepfold is both a thief and a robber. “He that entereth not by THE DOOR into the sheepfold, but climbeth-up SOME OTHER WAY, the same is a thief and a robber. John 10:1-2
BE READY, HUNGER AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS
We must be in a Love Covenant relationship with the TRUE Messiah Hebrews 8:10. But obeying the Torah (laws) will not and did not save anyone, not even Abraham. The Scripture speaks of the people of YaHVaH as the espoused Bride. Our love must be true and faithful and not shared with other “lovers” the idolatrous religions of the world.
If you are saved, you love YaHVaH and obey His Torah. “If you love Me, keep My Commandments” Messiah said in John 14:15; 15:10.
1 Samuel_15:22 And Samuel said, Hath YaHVaH as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of YaHVaH? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
Matthew 5:48 “Become PERFECT as your heavenly Father is PERFECT”.
Deuteronomy_30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Josh_24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve YaHVaH, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve YaHVaH.
1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if YaHVaH be Elohim, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
Ki 18:37 Hear me, O YaHVaH, hear me, that this people may know that thou art YaHVaH Elohim, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
Exodus 32:26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on YaHVaH'S side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.
:34 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.
:35 And YaHVaH plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.
Act 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey Elohim rather than men.
The Elohim of our fathers raised up YaHOSHA, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
Him hath Elohim exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Pure Spirit/Holy Ghost, whom Elohim hath given to them that obey him.
Exodus 23:20 Behold, I send an Messenger before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
Exo 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in Him.
Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord/Master/YaHVaH, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Build Your House on the Rock
Mat 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
IT DOES MATTER!
YeshaYahu (IsaiYah) 64:7 'And there is none that calleth upon Thy Name, that stirreth-up himself to take hold of Thee..'
Previously, the prophet stated in 63:16 “Doubtless Thou art our Father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Yisraeyl acknowledge us not: Thou, O YaHVaH (not l-o-r-d) art our Father, our Redeemer; Thy Name is from everlasting".
Just “Just accepting Ieasus” is not Scriptural. "Not religion, just a relationship" is a shallow concept that ignores that we must press into the Kingdom of YaHVaH with all our heart and spirit. Where is the Covenantal relationship?
Where is our espousal contract that the Bride must be betrothed to YaHOSHA Messiah? Hebrews 8:10; 10:16
We must be in a Love Covenant relationship with the TRUE Messiah Hebrews 8:10. But again, obeying the Torah (laws) will not and did not save anyone, not even Abraham. The Scripture speaks of the people of YaHVaH as the espoused Bride. Our love must be true and faithful and not shared with other “lovers” the idolatrous religions of the world.
If you are saved, you love YaHVaH and obey His Torah. “If you love Me, keep My Commandments” Messiah said in John 14:15; 15:10. Let us move up to Higher Ground to love YaHVaH with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: FEAR YaHVaH and keep His commandments: for this is the whole of man. For YHVH shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
Rev_21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
PSALM_139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
Rom_9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Malachi 1:1-5 Esau have I hated.
Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Exo 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I YaHVaH thy Elohim am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Exo 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Exo 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of YaHVaH thy Elohim in vain; for YaHVaH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it pure.
Exo 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
Exo 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of YaHVaH thy Elohim: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
Exo 20:11 For in six days YaHVaH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore YaHVaH blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.
A Common Saying: “My parents made me go to Church-now I don’t have to.’
Compare with: “My parents made me go to Ballgames, so now I don’t go. There’s too many hypocrites there. I don’t like the music . I don’t like the way the pitcher combs his hair and how he talks. HYPOCRITE!
In answer to the statement “You must believe in the Trinity to become saved” we do believe in the Spirit of YaHVaH called Ruach ha Kadosh and also in the Gifts of the Spirit. We believe in the Word of YaHVaH, the Son, The Word made flesh. It is not written that we must believe in the Roman teaching of the Trinity. We do NOT believe in three separate gods of the pantheon. Scripture says “Believe on Messiah, confess, repent and you will be saved.”
It is truly a matter of taking YaHVaH and His Son’s Word. If we would all hope and trust in the Scriptures as first and last authority, we would be rooted, grounded and settled forever in the faith that is true.
As the Scriptures are totally sufficient as they claim,
believe that He gives us the time for Sabbath to worship, beginning Sundown after Sixth of the week (begins 7th day) until Sundown of the First of the week.
Without repenting of breaking the Torah, we cannot receive Messiah and salvation. Acts 2:38; 5:29-33
We believe that Isaiah 8:19-20 is true for all today, “To the Law and to the Testimony, if they speak not according to this (His) Word, there is NO light in them”. Further, if they speak only scholarly research and there is no operation of the Pure Spirit then we (they/some) do not have “SPIRIT and Truth”. One cannot have the Spirit without the Truth. Acts 5:29 above.
Regarding "YaHVaH” versus “YaHVeH" the vowel “e” is not specified whether there is an "a or an "e".
We are coming out of Babylon. It is high "TIME TO OBEY" not to tarry.
