A, The Sabbath day is still the seventh day, why should I care?

Sabbath

Front cover

This is a controversial issue and

If you decide to keep the challenge you will be stand out like a sore thumb” says Mark Woodman.

Dr. Martin Luther King once wrote:

Cowardice asks the question: Is it safe? Expediency asks the question is it politics. Vanity asks the question is it popular? But conscience asks the question: Is it right?

And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.”

What is Faith in God. What does it mean to have faith in God? The word ‘Faith’ comes from the root-word “fid” which means trust. Trust in the operation of the Law of God.

(Revelation 18:4-6) (KJV) Starting at verse 4

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. (Revelation 18:4-6, KJV)

Recently I dreamed.

Every word spoken shall be judged.

I am speaking here as an ambassador for God, and as such, I have a charge, an obligation, a duty, to speak His Words.

:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. (Matthew 12:36-37, KJV)

(Revelation 22:18 KJV+)

:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (Revelation 22:18-19, KJV)

Forward

Upon reading this booklet you will no longer be ignorant of the law of the 4th Commandment. I am going to make an integrated effort demonstrate the sovereignty of the authority of the command to Sabbath that is, to Rest, each and every 7th day. The three-fold objective of this writing is 1. to show the authority and the Sovereignty of the commandment regarding the Sabbath; 2. the correct day and 3. the Scriptural way to observe it because His people, a “peculiar people”, will be obeying his law now and in the next life. I am going to attempt to show that the law is not done away with by the Word of God. There will not be reasoning from my logic, only the Word to show God has already spoken.

An introductory summary:

The weekly Sabbath is the set apart time once a week that the man of God is duty bound to keep holy and set apart from all work activities.

The Sabbath was initiated by the Creator in the book of Genesis and is mentioned throughout the Scripture. The word itself appears 147 times in the KJV. This issue is critical to God.

He calls it a Covenant between his people and himself. A Covenant is another way of saying it is a contract. His people are “a peculiar treasure” who obey his laws and his commandments including the fourth commandment. There are still 10 commandments

.

This Sabbath day issue is not a side issue to be pushed to the side.

In proving this law, I will be showing the foundation that must exist which is the authority of the Scripture. If it can be shown that the Creator of the Universe is actually the Messiah, ( Jesus Christ), then the argument that he would have nullified his own speech would be shown to be preposterous. He spoke the universe into existence. He spoke the Scripture to the Prophets. He spoke the Word to Moses. He is not going to nulify his own speech, is He? I doubt it.

The “reasoning” I have heard that the Sabbath day is no longer to be observed is weak on its face. The prima facie case that the Sabbath is still to be observed occurs through out the Scripture from Genesis to Revelation.

Acts 17:30 KJV+

:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30, KJV)

This booklet is primarily directed to people who sincerely want delve into the Scripture and the Word of God contained therein.

It is for your use in learning and understanding the topic. I have spent my energy, time and effort on this. I certainly hope that this work will be useful to you in increasing your blessing from Sabbath observation. I have discovered that if God moves you to begin keeping the Sabbath during your studies, you may find confirmation of the truth of this law in your own life and experience, as have I.

Instruction is: The function or the information, thus, would that not be the application of the law; or, in other words, the teaching others how to live by the Word/ Law as spoken by God?

So people teaching others how to live by God’s law would be the laborer in the Word. Or as the scripture speaks: The Ox treading out the corn, figuratively speaking.

The harvest is great but workers are few.

I am working for YHWH and YHWH is the one that is paying me for my labor.

So I don’t need any thing from you, Dear Reader, except your time and your effort to read this writing. Your time to read this pays me. We are settled then. Prayer offerings may be made in property such as, corn, wheat, honey, beans, oil, gold, silver.

:4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn. (Deuteronomy 25:4, KJV)

1Co 9:7-14   :7 Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? 8 Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also? 9 For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? 10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope. 11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things? 12 If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ. 13Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? 14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel. (1 Corinthians 9:7-14, KJV)

:17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. 18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward. (1 Timothy 5:17-18, KJV)

The first issue to mention is that the:

Word of God is of NO private interpretation.

(2 Peter 1:19 -21 KJV)

}

:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2 Peter 1:19-21, KJV)

Has the Sabbath Day Law been done away with because Jesus nailed it to the Cross? There is no supporting evidence in the Scripture to sustain such an allegation. But the evidence to the contrary is abundant!

Straight out of the Messiah’s own mouth come the following words:

(Matthew 5:17-20 KJV)

:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 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. 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. 20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17-20, KJV)

This law must be pretty important because the Son of God continues his speech and confirms the law in that those teaching and doing the “least commandment…” shall be called “great in the kingdom of heaven” as Matthew 5:19 confirms:

(Matthew 5:19 KJV+)

WhosoeverG3739 G1437 thereforeG3767 shall breakG3089 oneG3391 of theseG5130 leastG1646 commandments,G1785 andG2532 shall teachG1321 menG444 so,G3779 he shall be calledG2564 the leastG1646 inG1722 theG3588 kingdomG932 of heaven:G3772 butG1161 whosoeverG3739 G302 shall doG4160 andG2532 teachG1321 them, the sameG3778 shall be calledG2564 greatG3173 inG1722 theG3588 kingdomG932 of heaven.G3772

So in order to “do away with the law and nail it to the cross” Matthew 5:17 and Matthew 5:19 have to be stricken from the Word of God.

Also, John 15:10 records this:

John 15:10-12 KJV

:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. (John 15:9-12, KJV)

So, how does the Christian decide what ‘word’ to keep in the Scripture?

I hear some devout Christians say that only the “commandments of Jesus” are to be kept and that the rest of the law has been done away with and nailed to the cross and put out of the way. My first reply to this statement is a question to you, dear reader: Are not all aspects of our lives are all governed by law? The question then is, Is God’s law the highest?

Where does the buck stop? Is Acts 5:29 the highest commandment? Ought we to obey God first and foremost?

We are commanded to study to show our selves approved rightly dividing the Word of Truth. We are commanded to study this Word “line upon line”, “precept upon precept”.

(Isaiah 28:9-13) (KJV) Starting at verse 9

Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: 11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. 12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. 13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. (Isaiah 28:9-13, KJV)

It appears to me that every word out of HIS mouth is in full force and effect:

(Luke 21:33 KJV+) , (Mark 13:31 KJV+), (Matthew 24:35 KJV+) (Luke 21:32 KJV+)

(Matthew 5:18 KJV+) ForG1063 verilyG281 I sayG3004 unto you,G5213 TillG2193 heavenG3772 andG2532 earthG1093 pass,G3928 oneG1520 jotG2503 orG2228 oneG3391 tittleG2762 shall in no wiseG3364 passG3928 fromG575 theG3588 law,G3551 tillG2193 allG3956 be fulfilled.G1096

So the question arises: Has ‘IT all been fulfilled’, as Matthew states?

HAS THIS HAPPENED YET?

(2 Peter 3:10 KJV)

:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? (2 Peter 3:10-12, KJV)

My reason, logic and common sense say: No, this event has not happened, yet.. True?

He tells us, My thoughts are not your thoughts.

(Isaiah 55:8-13) (KJV) Starting at verse 8

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off. (Isaiah 55:8-13, KJV)

In furtherance of the purpose of this booklet the Scriptural observance of the Sabbath day is crucial. I have discovered that most of these laws require obedience before understanding is given.

The result will be an increase in blessing that Almighty God (Yah) can give. The individual can receive blessing for correct observance of God’s Holy day.

(Isaiah 32:15-20) (KJV) Starting at verse 15

Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest. 16 Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.

17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. 18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places; 19 When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place. 20 Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass. (Isaiah 32:15-20, KJV)

I want to mention this, but I don’t want to make it a sticking point because righteousness is more important than all.

I may be using a term for the name of God on occasion that may sound a bit unusual, yet from my studies it appears to me to me closer to the truth than many other names that are used.

Hebrew is read right to left. Yod Hay, Uwa, Hay, And the word HallellueYah although spelled with a “J” is always pronounced with the “Y” sound as, “YAH”, and not with the “J” sound as “JAH”. . ( Note: the Hebrew is read from right to left)

HWHY

The Hebrew word H3068יהוה yehôvâh yeh-ho-vaw’

From H1961; (the) selfExistent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: – Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.

Yet you will notice that the name is spelled HWHY

The letter “J” was not actually in the scripture until 1611 the “Yod” changed to a “J”.

There is no “J” in the name: HWHY.

And ;in the KJV+ there is the instance here:

(Psalms 68:4 KJV+) SingH7891 unto God,H430 sing praisesH2167 to his name:H8034 extolH5549 him that ridethH7392 upon the heavensH6160 by his nameH8034 JAH,H3050 and rejoiceH5937 beforeH6440 him.

H3050 יהּ yâhh yaw

Contracted for H3068, and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name: – Jah, the Lord, most vehement. Cp. names in “-iah,” “-jah.”

Why is the Scripture so difficult to understand?

Why are there as many interpretations as there are people? God himself designed it that way. No flesh can stand before God because every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Yahushua is LORD Of all. Nobody can understand everything, and all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and finally, Every Knee shall bow and every tongue confess the Jesus Christ ( Yahushua-shua) is Lord. Each individual must study the Word and must ask God himself for the Holy Ghost to instruct him.

(Mark 4:12 KJV+)

Scripture defines itself.

There is no need to go out side the Scripture to determine the meaning of the Scripture. God has made certain that we have received the Scripture over the last 5000 plus years and it is sufficient for our needs in understanding.

Introduction

By Whose Authority is the Scripture?

The question as to who wrote the Scripture must be answered, first and foremost, to establish the authority to establish the authorship. This is known as ‘laying the foundation’. For instance, if a handful of men from different ages and eras conspired with the others after reading the writing of the others of their own volition and compiled it, then the authority of the Scripture is made weak and of no authority. Thus, we must find real, competent evidence to lay the foundation of the authority of the Scripture before any discussion can begin; this initial question must be answered: By Whose Authority is the Scripture? If proved that Almighty God is the authority and the author of the Scripture then we had better begin paying attention. So, let us begin finding some real evidence. What does the Scripture say of itself?

A first principle to have firmly in mind throughout this study is stated here in 2nd Peter and 2nd Thessalonians:

(KJV+) 2Pe 1:21 ForG1063 the prophecyG4394 cameG5342 notG3756 in old timeG4218 by the willG2307 of man:G444 butG235 holyG40 menG444 of GodG2316 spakeG2980as they were movedG5342 byG5259 the HolyG40 Ghost.G4151

1Th 2:13 For this causeG1223 G5124 alsoG2532 thankG2168 weG2249 GodG2316 without ceasing,G89 because,G3754 when ye receivedG3880 the wordG3056 of GodG2316 which ye heardG189 ofG3844 us,G2257 ye receivedG1209it notG3756as the wordG3056 of men,G444 butG235 asG2531 it isG2076 in truth,G230 the wordG3056 of God,G2316 whichG3739 effectually workethG1754 alsoG2532 inG1722 youG5213 that believe.G4100

Second issue is that;

2. 2Ti 3:16 AllG3956 scriptureG1124is given by inspiration of God,G2315 andG2532is profitableG5624 forG4314 doctrine,G1319 forG4314 reproof,G1650 forG4314 correction,G1882 forG4314 instructionG3809 inG1722 righteousness:G1343

The Holy Ghost is the Author, and “All Scripture is God-breathed” . So we have 3 Scriptures that claim that the Scripture is from God, the Creator. The sovereignty of the authority thus established.

The authority is God.

The Scripture tells us that it is not “as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God”.

If we are settled then, Dear Reader, that the foundation of the authorship of the Scripture is God, then we can move forward to the second issue.

The principles for understanding the Scripture.

There are a number of principles that need to be understood in order to understand the Scripture. The following Scriptures each have a piece of the puzzle. Taken together they paint a picture and tell a story.

Summary of the Principles for understanding Scripture.

These principles from Scripture identify and lay the foundation and provide us with the evidence necessary to observe and heed every word contained therein.

1. The identity of the author;

2. The Sovereignty of the Author,

3. The objective of the Author.

4. The goal of the writing

5. The intent of the Scriptures.

  1. Identifies Truth.

Pilate may have asked : What is truth? But we who know our God already know what truth is.

And we are to use the Scripture to define the Scripture not privately deciding what it means:

2Pe 1:20 KnowingG1097 thisG5124 first,G4412 thatG3754 noG3956 G3756 prophecyG4394 of the scriptureG1124 isG1096 of any privateG2398 interpretation.G1955

We can’t decide for ourselves what the Scripture means. The Scripture must define itself. And it can be used to test itself. The Scripture has a built-in test for itself, a built in litmus test, so to speak. Every word must be in line with every other word in the Scripture. The Scripture is not going to state a contradiction. So every interpretation must be fully in compliance with the law:

Isaiah 8:20 To the lawH8451 and to the testimony:H8584 ifH518 they speakH559 notH3808 according to thisH2088 word,H1697it is becauseH834there is noH369 lightH7837 in them.

Question to ask: Would God Almighty, Creator of the Universe, and the Author of the Scripture, the author of every breath, and every syllable of the Scripture, the “Word made flesh” nullify his own word?

Let us go to the Scripture once again. The book of John records this: (from the literal translation)

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:2 He was in the beginning with God. John 1:3 All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being. John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. And we beheld His glory, glory as of an only begotten from the Father, full of grace and of truth.

This ‘Word’, of which we speak, became a man and lived on the earth He created. The incarnate Word.

Perhaps a better question to ask is, “Who is the Word of God?” Correct?

The Messiah? The Logos? The Word made Flesh? The Law? Yahushua(Jesus) is the Word made flesh.

This Universe was created by the Word which he spoke, and this Word, this Logos, this God chose to incarnate and to live among his creation.

Pro 8:30 Then I wasH1961 byH681 him, as one brought upH525with him: and I wasH1961 dailyH3117 H3117his delight,H8191 rejoicingH7832 alwaysH3605 H6256 beforeH6440 him;

Pro 8:31 RejoicingH7832 in the habitable partH8398 of his earth;H776 and my delightsH8191 were withH854 the sonsH1121 of men.H120

(Delights with the Sons of men! He loves us. He loves our concerns. He loves our minds and our creativity. He desires our love and our worship).

The question arises: Who was “with Him”? Who was with The Father during the Creation of the Universe?

The Word; the Logos, was with Him.

This Logos, this God, came to the earth He created. He humbled himself and became a man.

(Isaiah 57:15 KJV+) ForH3588 thusH3541 saithH559 the highH7311 and lofty OneH5375 that inhabitethH7931 eternity,H5703 whose nameH8034 is Holy;H6918 I dwellH7931 in the highH4791 and holyH6918 place, withH854 him also that is of a contriteH1793 and humbleH8217 spirit,H7307 to reviveH2421 the spiritH7307 of the humble,H8217 and to reviveH2421 the heartH3820 of the contrite ones.H1792

What is God’s will? God’s will is that his creation obeys his will, his law, his order so that his creation will be happy, healthy and live in his light.

(Deuteronomy 17:19 KJV+) , (Deuteronomy 18:9 KJV+)

(Deuteronomy 31:12 KJV+) Gather the people together,H6950 (H853) H5971 men,H376 and women,H802 and children,H2945 and thy strangerH1616 thatH834is within thy gates,H8179 thatH4616 they may hear,H8085 and thatH4616 they may learn,H3925 and fearH3372 (H853) the LORDH3068 your God,H430 and observeH8104 to doH6213 (H853) allH3605 the wordsH1697 of thisH2063 law:H8451

(Isaiah 1:17 KJV+) LearnH3925 to do well;H3190 seekH1875 judgment,H4941 relieveH833 the oppressed,H2541 judgeH8199 the fatherless,H3490 pleadH7378 for the widow.H490

Learn to do right.

How do we know what ‘right’ is? If there is a right, there must be a wrong. One can not experience light without darkness, good without evil, the sensation of heat without the absence of heat as a contrast. There would be no distinguishing with out the opposite.

Right comes from Righteous/ righteousness and how does the Scripture define “righteousness”?

(Psalms 19:7 KJV+) The lawH8451 of the LORDH3068is perfect,H8549 convertingH7725 the soul:H5315 the testimonyH5715 of the LORDH3068is sure,H539 making wiseH2449 the simple.H6612(Psalms 19:8 KJV+) The statutesH6490 of the LORDH3068are right,H3477 rejoicingH8055 the heart:H3820 the commandmentH4687 of the LORDH3068is pure,H1249 enlighteningH215 the eyes.H5869(Psalms 19:9 KJV+) The fearH3374 of the LORDH3068is clean,H2889 enduringH5975 for ever:H5703 the judgmentsH4941 of the LORDH3068are trueH571and righteousH6663 altogether.H3162(Psalms 19:10 KJV+) More to be desiredH2530are they than gold,H4480 H2091 yea, than muchH7227 fine gold:H4480 H6337 sweeterH4966 also than honeyH4480 H1706 and the honeycomb.H5317 H6688(Psalms 19:11 KJV+) MoreoverH1571 by them is thy servantH5650 warned:H2094and in keepingH8104 of them there is greatH7227 reward.H6118(Psalms 19:12 KJV+) WhoH4310 can understandH995his errors?H7691 cleanseH5352 thou me from secretH4480 H5641faults.(Psalms 19:13 KJV+) Keep backH2820 thy servantH5650 alsoH1571 from presumptuousH4480 H2086sins; let them notH408 have dominionH4910 over me: thenH227 shall I be upright,H8552 and I shall be innocentH5352 from the greatH7227 transgression.H4480 H6588(Psalms 19:14 KJV+) Let the wordsH561 of my mouth,H6310 and the meditationH1902 of my heart,H3820 beH1961 acceptableH7522 in thy sight,H6440 O LORD,H3068 my strength,H6697 and my redeemer.H1350

What is truth?

Truth is the Word of God.

3Scriptures: to prove the identity of what is Truth?

John 17:17; and 1st Kings 17:24.

John 17:17 SanctifyG37 themG846 throughG1722 thyG4675 truth:G225 thyG4674 wordG3056 isG2076 truth.G225

And confirmation, the second witness:

1Ki 17:24 And the womanH802 saidH559 toH413 Elijah,H452 NowH6258 by thisH2088 I knowH3045 thatH3588 thouH859art a manH376 of God,H430and that the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 in thy mouthH6310is truth.H571

And finally the third witness as required for every matter as per:

2 Corinthians 13:1 KJV+(1) ThisG5124is the third timeG5154 I am comingG2064 toG4314 you.G5209 InG1909 the mouthG4750 of twoG1417 orG2532 threeG5140 witnessesG3144 shall everyG3956 wordG4487 be established.G2476

Psalms 119:142 KJV+ Thy righteousnessH6666is an everlastingH5769is the truth.H571

Where is the Sovereignty mentioned that’s necessary to establish the Authority of the Sabbath day law?

That would be Genesis 1:1. He is the creator. The creator of the universe has spoken.

Next the Scripture says that the author does not change.

God set up the plan and spoke it into existence and promises that he will not change:

Malachi 3:6

Mal 3:6 ForH3588 IH589am the LORD,H3068 I changeH8138 not;H3808 therefore yeH859 sonsH1121 of JacobH3290 are notH3808 consumed.H3615

The Scripture can not be broken.

John 10:35 IfG1487 he calledG2036 themG1565 gods,G2316 untoG4314 whomG3739 theG3588 wordG3056 of GodG2316 came,G1096 andG2532 theG3588 scriptureG1124 cannotG1410 G3756 be broken;G3089

And He is not going to teach just anybody. The individual has to be ready to learn:

(2Ti 2:15)

StudyG4704 to shewG3936 thyselfG4572 approvedG1384 unto God,G2316 a workmanG2040 that needeth not to be ashamed,G422 rightly dividingG3718 theG3588 wordG3056 of truth.G225

Isaiah 28:9 (H853) WhomH4310 shall he teachH3384 knowledge?H1844 and whomH4310 shall he make to understandH995 doctrine?H8052them that are weanedH1580 from the milk,H4480 H2461and drawnH6267 from the breasts.H4480 H7699 Isaiah 28:10 ForH3588 preceptH6673must be upon precept,H6673 preceptH6673 upon precept;H6673 lineH6957 upon line,H6957 lineH6957 upon line;H6957 hereH8033 a little,H2191and thereH8033 a little:H2191 Isaiah 28:11 ForH3588 with stammeringH3934 lipsH8193 and anotherH312 tongueH3956 will he speakH1696 toH413 thisH2088 people.H5971 Isaiah 28:12 ToH413 whomH834 he said,H559 ThisH2063is the restH4496wherewith ye may cause the wearyH5889 to rest;H5117 and thisH2063is the refreshing:H4774 yet they wouldH14 notH3808 hear.H8085 Isaiah 28:13 But the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 wasH1961 unto them preceptH6673 upon precept,H6673 preceptH6673 upon precept;H6673 lineH6957 upon line,H6957 lineH6957 upon line;H6957 hereH8033 a little,H2191and thereH8033 a little;H2191 thatH4616 they might go,H1980 and fallH3782 backward,H268 and be broken,H7665 and snared,H3369 and taken.H3920

(Heb 4:12) ForG1063 theG3588 wordG3056 of GodG2316is quick,G2198 andG2532 powerful,G1756 andG2532 sharperG5114 thanG5228 anyG3956 twoedgedG1366 sword,G3162 piercingG1338 evenG2532 toG891 the dividing asunderG3311 of(G5037) soulG5590 andG2532 spirit,G4151 andG5037 of the jointsG719 andG2532 marrow,G3452 andG2532is a discernerG2924 of the thoughtsG1761 andG2532 intentsG1771 of the heart.G2588

The law on the Sabbath.

He gives his Name, his Title, and his Jurisdiction as the evidence of the authority of the command to keep the Sabbath day holy as per these following Scriptures: His name: YHWH. His Title: Creator. His jurisdiction: The Heaven and the Earth.

(Exodus 20:8 KJV+) RememberH2142 the(H853) sabbathH7676 day,H3117 to keep it holy.H6942 (Exodus 20:9 KJV+) SixH8337 daysH3117 shalt thou labour,H5647 and doH6213 allH3605 thy work:H439 (Exodus 20:10 KJV+) But the seventhH7637 dayH3117is the sabbathH7676 of the LORDH3068 thy God:H430in it thou shalt notH3808 doH6213 anyH3605 work,H4399 thou,H859 nor thy son,H1121 nor thy daughter,H1323 thy manservant,H5650 nor thy maidservant,H519 nor thy cattle,H929 nor thy strangerH1616 thatH834is within thy gates:H8179 (Exodus 20:11 KJV+) ForH3588in sixH8337 daysH3117 the LORDH3068 madeH6213 (H853) heavenH8064 and earth,H776 (H853) the sea,H3220 and allH3605 thatH834 in them is, and restedH5117 the seventhH7637 day:H3117 whereforeH5921 H3651 the LORDH3068 blessedH1288 the(H853) sabbathH7676 day,H3117 and hallowedH6942 it.

Exodus 31:12-17 KJV+ And the LORDH3068 spakeH559 untoH413 Moses,H4872 saying,H559 (13) SpeakH1696 thouH859 also untoH413 the childrenH1121 of Israel,H3478 saying,H559 VerilyH389 (H853) my sabbathsH7676 ye shall keep:H8104 forH3588 itH1931 is a signH226 betweenH996 me and you throughout your generations;H1755 that ye may knowH3045 thatH3588 IH589 am the LORDH3068 that doth sanctifyH6942 you. (14) Ye shall keepH8104 (H853) the sabbathH7676 therefore; forH3588 itH1931 is holyH6944 unto you: every one that defilethH2490 it shall surely be put to death:H4191 H4191 forH3588 whosoeverH3605 doethH6213 any workH4399 therein, thatH1931 soulH5315 shall be cut offH3772 from amongH4480 H7130 his people.H5971 (15) SixH8337 daysH3117 may workH4399 be done;H6213 but in the seventhH7637 is the sabbathH7676 of rest,H7677 holyH6944 to the LORD:H3068 whosoeverH3605 doethH6213 any workH4399 in the sabbathH7676 day,H3117 he shall surely be put to death.H4191 H4191 (16) Wherefore the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 shall keepH8104 (H853) the sabbath,H7676 to observeH6213 (H853) the sabbathH7676 throughout their generations,H1755 for a perpetualH5769 covenant.H1285 (17) ItH1931 is a signH226 betweenH996 me and the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 for ever:H5769 forH3588 in sixH8337 daysH3117 the LORDH3068 madeH6213 (H853) heavenH8064 and earth,H776 and on the seventhH7637 dayH3117 he rested,H7673 and was refreshed.H5314

Exodus 35:2-3 KJV+ SixH8337 daysH3117 shall workH4399 be done,H6213 but on the seventhH7637 dayH3117 there shall beH1961 to you an holyH6944 day, a sabbathH7676 of restH7677 to the LORD:H3068 whosoeverH3605 doethH6213 workH4399 therein shall be put to death.H4191(3) Ye shall kindleH1197 noH3808 fireH784 throughoutH3605 your habitationsH4186 upon the sabbathH7676 day.H3117

Leviticus 23:3 KJV+ SixH8337 daysH3117 shall workH4399 be done:H6213 but the seventhH7637 dayH3117is the sabbathH7676 of rest,H7677 an holyH6944 convocation;H4744 ye shall doH6213 noH3808 H3605 workH4399therein: itH1931is the sabbathH7676 of the LORDH3068 in allH3605 your dwellings.H4186

A weekly return Home

The bottom line is that we have a command here to “rest” once a week on the 7th day. In returning and rest shall be your strength as Isaiah says:

(Isaiah 30:15 KJV+) ForH3588 thusH3541 saithH559 the LordH136 GOD,H3069 the Holy OneH6918 of Israel;H3478 In returningH7729 and restH5183 shall ye be saved;H3467 in quietnessH8252 and in confidenceH985 shall beH1961 your strength:H1369 and ye wouldH14 not.H3808

There are several words for ‘rest” in Scripture but the one I want to look at right now comes from the Greek word ‘katapausis’ and it seems to imply the meaning of the word ‘home’, ‘an abode’, where you live.**From E-Sword Strong’s Concordance Created by Rick Myers**

G2663 κατάπαυσις katapausis kat-ap’-ow-sis

From G2664; reposingdown, that is, (by Hebraism) abode: – rest.

A search on “This is the rest” from E-Sword:

(Exodus 16:23 KJV+) And he saidH559 untoH413 them, ThisH1931is that whichH834 the LORDH3068 hath said,H1696 To morrowH4279is the restH7677 of the holyH6944 sabbathH7676 unto the LORD:H3068 bakeH644that(H853) whichH834 ye will bakeH644to day, and seetheH1310 thatH834 ye will seethe;H1310 and that whichH3605 remaineth overH5736 lay upH5117 for you to be keptH4931 untilH5704 the morning.H1242

(Isaiah 28:12 KJV+) ToH413 whomH834 he said,H559 ThisH2063is the restH4496wherewith ye may cause the wearyH5889 to rest;H5117 and thisH2063is the refreshing:H4774 yet they wouldH14 notH3808 hear.H8085

Perhaps this ‘rest’ is a manner of going home. The individual is to come home once a week to visit and to hear. As sojourners whether as an ambassador, or as a citizen of God’s kingdom on this earth, we are far away from our home, and have no sure place to lay our head as neither did our Messiah on his sojourn here.

So once a week we are to take our rest in the manner God has provided us on our life long journey. This is our training ground. Will we obey him, or no?

(Deuteronomy 8:2 KJV+) And thou shalt rememberH2142 (H853) allH3605 the wayH1870 whichH834 the LORDH3068 thy GodH430 ledH1980 thee theseH2088 fortyH705 yearsH8141 in the wilderness,H4057 toH4616 humbleH6031 thee, and to proveH5254 thee, to knowH3045 (H853) whatH834was in thine heart,H3824 whether thou wouldest keepH8104 his commandments,H4687 orH518 no.H3808

So we return ‘home’ to our Creator once a week. This is the foundation of Worship, which is obedience to the laws of the Sovereign.

It is a command. Every man must be free once every 7 years on the Jubilee year, which is the year of release of all debt, thus every man must be free once every 7 days on the day of release, the Sabbath day.

God Almighty set up this weekly repose for us to keep communication with Him. We go back to home base and refresh, refill our supplies, renew our commitment to Him: He is our base, our foundation, our Rock.

The little ‘petros’ the little pebble must come again and rest on the ‘Petra” the massive rock, the mountain of our God. So we roll around doing our work and then return to the foundation.

We can not last long in the land if do not return and refresh.

(Isaiah 28:12 KJV+) ToH413 whomH834 he said,H559 ThisH2063is the restH4496wherewith ye may cause the wearyH5889 to rest;H5117 and thisH2063is the refreshing:H4774 yet they wouldH14 notH3808 hear.H8085

If we refuse to obey this commandment, how long can we last? I would suggest to you that we will not last long. We must return to the well to refill our water. The well is the Messiah and his Word, his Logos, his command set up from the beginning of the universe at Creation. He has mentioned this Sabbath issue 147 times in the Scripture (KJV+).

HE said:

Rest.”

Rest!”

Rest!”

Rest!”

(Matthew 11:28 KJV+) ComeG1205 untoG4314 me,G3165 allG3956ye that labourG2872 andG2532 are heavy laden,G5412 and IG2504 will give you rest.G373 G5209

This yoke is not burdensome:

(Matthew 11:29 KJV+) TakeG142 myG3450 yokeG2218 uponG1909 you,G5209 andG2532 learnG3129 ofG575 me;G1700 forG3754 I amG1510 meekG4235 andG2532 lowlyG5011 in heart:G2588 andG2532 ye shall findG2147 restG372 unto yourG5216 souls.G5590

(Matthew 11:30 KJV+) ForG1063 myG3450 yokeG2218is easy,G5543 andG2532 myG3450 burdenG5413 isG2076 light.G1645

(1 John 5:3 KJV+) ForG1063 thisG3778 isG2076 theG3588 loveG26 of God,G2316 thatG2443 we keepG5083 hisG848 commandments:G1785 andG2532 hisG848 commandmentsG1785 areG1526 notG3756 grievous.G926

Do this law, and then see for yourselves.

Do the command and God will let you know if it is his will.

This law must be obeyed first before the instruction on why will become clear to you.

(Acts 7:49 KJV+) HeavenG3772is myG3427 throne,G2362 andG1161 earthG1093is myG3450 footstool:G5286 G4228 whatG4169 houseG3624 will ye buildG3618 me?G3427 saithG3004 the Lord:G2962 orG2228 whatG5101is the placeG5117 of myG3450 rest?G2663

(Hebrews 3:11 KJV+) SoG5613 I swareG3660 inG1722 myG3450 wrath,G3709 They(G1487) shall not enterG1525 intoG1519 myG3450 rest.)G2663

(Hebrews 3:18 KJV+) AndG1161 to whomG5101 swareG3660 he that they should notG3361 enterG1525 intoG1519 hisG848 rest,G2663 butG1508 to them that believed not?G544

(Hebrews 4:1 KJV+) Let us thereforeG3767 fear,G5399 lest,G3379 a promiseG1860 being leftG2641us of enteringG1525 intoG1519 hisG846 rest,G2663 anyG5100 ofG1537 youG5216 should seemG1380 to come shortG5302 of it.

Hebrews 4:3-11 KJV+ ForG1063 we which have believedG4100 do enterG1525 intoG1519 rest,G2663 asG2531 he said,G2046 AsG5613 I have swornG3660 inG1722 myG3450 wrath,G3709 ifG1487 they shall enterG1525 intoG1519 myG3450 rest:G2663 althoughG2543 theG3588 worksG2041 were finishedG1096 fromG575 the foundationG2602 of the world.G2889 (4) ForG1063 he spakeG2046 in a certain placeG4225 ofG4012 theG3588 seventhG1442 day on this wise,G3779 AndG2532 GodG2316 did restG2664 theG3588 seventhG1442 dayG2250 fromG575 allG3956 hisG848 works.G2041 (5) AndG2532 inG1722 thisG5129 place again,G3825 IfG1487 they shall enterG1525 intoG1519 myG3450 rest.G2663 (6) SeeingG1893 thereforeG3767 it remainethG620 that someG5100 must enterG1525 therein,G1519 G846 andG2532 they to whom it was first preachedG2097 G4386 entered not inG1525 G3756 becauseG1223 of unbelief:G543 (7) Again,G3825 he limitethG3724 a certainG5100 day,G2250 sayingG3004 inG1722 David,G1138 To day,G4594 afterG3326 so longG5118 a time;G5550 asG2531 it is said,G2046 To dayG4594 ifG1437 ye will hearG191 hisG846 voice,G5456 hardenG4645 notG3361 yourG5216 hearts.G2588 (8) ForG1063 ifG1487 JesusG2424 had given them rest,G2664 G846 then would he notG3756(G302) afterwardG3326 G5023 have spokenG2980 ofG4012 anotherG243 day.G2250 (9) There remainethG620 thereforeG686 a restG4520 to theG3588 peopleG2992 of God.G2316 (10) ForG1063 he that is enteredG1525 intoG1519 hisG846 rest,G2663 heG846 alsoG2532 hath ceasedG2664 fromG575 his ownG848 works,G2041 asG5618 GodG2316 did fromG575 his.G2398 (11) Let us labourG4704 thereforeG3767 to enterG1525 intoG1519 thatG1565 rest,G2663 lestG3363 any manG5100 fallG4098 afterG1722 theG3588 sameG846 exampleG5262 of unbelief.G543

(Hebrews 4:5 KJV+) AndG2532 inG1722 thisG5129place again,G3825 IfG1487 they shall enterG1525 intoG1519 myG3450 rest.G2663

(Hebrews 4:10 KJV+) ForG1063 he that is enteredG1525 intoG1519 hisG846 rest,G2663 heG846 alsoG2532 hath ceasedG2664 fromG575 his ownG848 works,G2041 asG5618 GodG2316did fromG575 his.G2398

(Hebrews 4:11 KJV+) Let us labourG4704 thereforeG3767 to enterG1525 intoG1519 thatG1565 rest,G2663 lestG3363 any manG5100 fallG4098 afterG1722 theG3588 sameG846 exampleG5262 of unbelief.G543

I don’t see how this issue of Sabbath rest can be any clearer. It is plain as day light to me that we are supposed to be resting once a week as per the Law of the Sabbath.

Part II

The proper observation of the Sabbath.

The question arises now. How do we keep the Sabbath. Let us return once again to the Foundational Scriptures starting with Isaiah,

(Isaiah 56:2 KJV+) BlessedH835 is the manH582 that doethH6213 this,H2063 and the sonH1121 of manH120 that layeth holdH2388 on it; that keepethH8104 the sabbathH7676 from pollutingH4480 H2490 it, and keepethH8104 his handH3027 from doingH4480 H6213 anyH3605 evil.H7451

(Isaiah 56:6 KJV+) Also the sonsH1121 of the stranger,H5236 that join themselvesH3867 toH5921 the LORD,H3068 to serveH8334 him, and to loveH157 (H853) the nameH8034 of the LORD,H3068 to beH1961 his servants,H5650 every oneH3605 that keepethH8104 the sabbathH7676 from pollutingH4480 H2490 it, and taketh holdH2388 of my covenant;H1285

(Isaiah 58:13 KJV+) IfH518 thou turn awayH7725 thy footH7272 from the sabbath,H4480 H7676 from doingH6213 thy pleasureH2656 on my holyH6944 day;H3117 and callH7121 the sabbathH7676 a delight,H6027 the holyH6918 of the LORD,H3068 honourable;H3513 and shalt honourH3513 him, not doingH4480 H6213 thine own ways,H1870 nor findingH4480 H4672 thine own pleasure,H2656 nor speakingH1696 thine own words:H1697

(Isaiah 66:23 KJV+) And it shall come to pass,H1961 that fromH4480 H1767 one new moonH2320 to another,H2320 and fromH4480 H1767 one sabbathH7676 to another,H7676 shall allH3605 fleshH1320 comeH935 to worshipH7812 beforeH6440 me, saithH559 the LORD.H3068

It appears that we are to be doing something other than what we do on the other six(6) days of the week. It appears that the Sabbath day is to be set apart from the other days of the week.

Sin is Transgression of the Law.

God wants to bless each of us and he wants to bless us abundantly but we have to be in line with His Commands.

God can not view sin, and sin is the transgression of the law. So by failure to keep his fourth (4th) command we are in effect breaking his law and thus we are in sin.

Many people have this strange idea that the law is no longer to be observed. But is that what Yahushua said? It would be a strange interpretation of the following words:

Mat 5:17 ThinkG3543 notG3361 thatG3754 I am comeG2064 to destroyG2647 theG3588 law,G3551 orG2228 theG3588 prophets:G4396 I am notG3756 comeG2064 to destroy,G2647 butG235 to fulfil.G4137

Mat 5:18 ForG1063 verilyG281 I sayG3004 unto you,G5213 TillG2193 heavenG3772 andG2532 earthG1093 pass,G3928 oneG1520 jotG2503 orG2228 oneG3391 tittleG2762 shall in no wiseG3364 passG3928 fromG575 theG3588 law,G3551 tillG2193 allG3956 be fulfilled.G1096

Mat 5:19 WhosoeverG3739 G1437 thereforeG3767 shall breakG3089 oneG3391 of theseG5130 leastG1646 commandments,G1785 andG2532 shall teachG1321 menG444 so,G3779 he shall be calledG2564 the leastG1646 inG1722 theG3588 kingdomG932 of heaven:G3772 butG1161 whosoeverG3739 G302 shall doG4160 andG2532 teachG1321 them, the sameG3778 shall be calledG2564 greatG3173 inG1722 theG3588 kingdomG932 of heaven.G3772

Did Yahushua (Jesus Christ) come to the earth he created to do away with the principles he spoke into existence?

Is the law not in force because Jesus Christ ( Yahushua) did not mention it again when he walked the planet?

Are the traffic laws not in force because the traffic cop did not read every one of them to me when he stopped me for rolling though a stop sign?

Of course they are. Yeah, and I paid for it.

It is my responsibility to know every one of the two thousand laws concerning the license which I used carried in my pocket, correct?

A commentary on this from the Jamison Fausset and Brown Commentary states this quoted from the E-Sword program created by Rick Meyers:

Mat 5:17

Mat_5:17-48. Identity of these principles with those of the ancient economy; in contrast with the reigning traditional teaching.

Exposition of Principles (Mat_5:17-20).

Think not that I am come — that I came.

to destroy the law, or the prophets — that is, “the authority and principles of the Old Testament.” (On the phrase, see Mat_7:12; Mat_22:40; Luk_16:16; Act_13:15). This general way of taking the phrase is much better than understanding “the law” and “the prophets” separately, and inquiring, as many good critics do, in what sense our Lord could be supposed to meditate the subversion of each. To the various classes of His hearers, who might view such supposed abrogation of the law and the prophets with very different feelings, our Lord’s announcement would, in effect, be such as this – “Ye who tremble at the word of the Lord, fear not that I am going to sweep the foundation from under your feet: Ye restless and revolutionary spirits, hope not that I am going to head any revolutionary movement: And ye who hypocritically affect great reverence for the law and the prophets, pretend not to find anything in My teaching derogatory to God’s living oracles.”

I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil — Not to subvert, abrogate, or annul, but to establish the law and the prophets – to unfold them, to embody them in living form, and to enshrine them in the reverence, affection, and character of men, am I come.

So it appears that the law/word/logos that proceeded out of the mouth of God is still in full force and effect:

(Mat 4:4) ButG1161 heG3588 answeredG611 and said,G2036 It is written,G1125 ManG444 shall notG3756 liveG2198 byG1909 breadG740 alone,G3441 butG235 byG1909 everyG3956 wordG4487 that proceedethG1607 out ofG1223 the mouthG4750 of God.G2316

(Luke 4:4) AndG2532 JesusG2424 answeredG611 (G4314) him,G846 saying,G3004 It is written,G1125 ThatG3754 manG444 shall notG3756 liveG2198 byG1909 breadG740 alone,G3441 butG235 byG1909 everyG3956 wordG4487 of God.G2316

But the question arises, who spoke these words “that man shall not live by bread alone” in the book of Deuteronomy? The answer: The Word, The Logos. The word was with God and the Word Was God From John 1:1.

Deuteronomy 8:3 And he humbledH6031 thee, and suffered thee to hunger,H7456 and fedH398 thee withH854 manna,H4478 whichH834 thou knewestH3045 not,H3808 neitherH3808 did thy fathersH1 know;H3045 thatH4616 he might make thee knowH3045 thatH3588 manH120 doth notH3808 liveH2421 byH5921 breadH3899 only,H905 butH3588 byH5921 everyH3605 word that proceedeth outH4161 of the mouthH6310 of the LORDH3068 doth manH120 live.H2421

Is it provable that the Sabbath day is the 7th Day

I am not going to go into detail into the external proofs of this evidence but I will mention that even today the calendar is the same. Day one is the first day and day 7 is the Sabbath Day. Nothing has changed. When the Gregorian Calendar was started the days moved forward from the 4 to the 14th but the day of the week was not changed.

Even the Pope in 364 AD was convinced that the Sabbath day is the seventh day or Saturday because in his Papal Bull he transferred the solemnity of the Sabbath from Saturday to the venerable day of the sun, the first day of the week.( See National Sunday Law by Jan Marcusen).   http://www.seventh-day.org/Read_NSL.htm

Isaiah 55:11 SoH3651 shall my wordH1697 beH1961 thatH834 goeth forthH3318 out of my mouth:H4480 H6310 it shall notH3808 returnH7725 untoH413 me void,H7387 butH3588 H518 it shall accomplishH6213 (H853) that whichH834 I please,H2654 and it shall prosperH6743in the thing wheretoH834 I sentH7971 it.

How to determine which day is holy to Almighty Loving God (YAH)?

God showed the Children of Israel in the desert which day was the Sabbath before he spoke to them on Mount Sinai which day is the Sabbath by his actions. He commanded them to collect manna on 6 days and that on the 6th day he would give a double portion to be laid up for the Sabbath day. Every other day any manna that was stored “bred worms and stank”.

So they were able to store manna over night on only one night a week. God made sure they knew which day was set apart.

Nor were they supposed to cook it on the Sabbath day: Everything was to be prepared before the Sabbath day.

Exodus 16:20 Notwithstanding they hearkenedH8085 notH3808 untoH413 Moses;H4872 but someH376 of them leftH3498 ofH4480 it untilH5704 the morning,H1242 and it bredH7311 worms,H8438 and stank:H887 and MosesH4872 was wrothH7107 withH5921 them.

Exodus 16:22 And it came to pass,H1961that on the sixthH8345 dayH3117 they gatheredH3950 twice as muchH4932 bread,H3899 twoH8147 omersH6016 for oneH259man: and allH3605 the rulersH5387 of the congregationH5712 cameH935 and toldH5046 Moses.H4872

Exodus 16:23 And he saidH559 untoH413 them, ThisH1931is that whichH834 the LORDH3068 hath said,H1696 To morrowH4279is the restH7677 of the holyH6944 sabbathH7676 unto the LORD:H3068 bakeH644that(H853) whichH834 ye will bakeH644to day, and seetheH1310 thatH834 ye will seethe;H1310 and that whichH3605 remaineth overH5736 lay upH5117 for you to be keptH4931 untilH5704 the morning.H1242

Exodus 16:24 And they laid it upH5117 (H853) tillH5704 the morning,H1242 asH834 MosesH4872 bade:H6680 and it did notH3808 stink,H887 neitherH3808 wasH1961 there any wormH7415 therein.

Notice that one day a week the manna did not stink when held over from the sixth day to the seventh day—the Sabbath!

Even the manna was only given by God on the 6 work days because God himself rested from giving the manna.

And he proved the 7th day Holy by keeping the manna fresh over night that was gathered on the 6th day. Every other day of the week the manna rotted if it was kept over night.

Exodus 16:25 And MosesH4872 said,H559 EatH398 that to day;H3117 forH3588 to dayH3117is a sabbathH7676 unto the LORD:H3068 to dayH3117 ye shall notH3808 findH4672 it in the field.H7704

Exodus 16:26 SixH8337 daysH3117 ye shall gatherH3950 it; but on the seventhH7637 day,H3117which is the sabbath,H7676 in it there shall beH1961 none.H3808

When was the Sabbath day created?

The Sabbath was Created and commanded in the beginning well before the Children of Israel received the Law from the mouth of God:

Gen 2:1 Thus the heavensH8064 and the earthH776 were finished,H3615 and allH3605 the hostH6635 of them.

Gen 2:2 And on the seventhH7637 dayH3117 GodH430 endedH3615 his workH4399 whichH834 he had made;H6213 and he restedH7673 on the seventhH7637 dayH3117 from allH4480 H3605 his workH4399 whichH834 he had made.H6213

Gen 2:3 And GodH430 blessedH1288 (H853) the seventhH7637 day,H3117 andsanctifiedH6942 it: becauseH3588 that in it he had restedH7673 from allH4480 H3605 his workH4399 whichH834 GodH430 createdH1254 and made.H6213

Even God stopped working on the 7th day. No Work to be done on the Sabbath day:

So we are commanded to cease working on this one day a week: As the master, YHWH, rests, so the servant rests.

(Matthew 10:24-25) (KJV) Starting at verse 24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. 25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? (Matthew 10:24-25, KJV)

(Deuteronomy 5:14) NeitherH3808 carry forthH3318 a burdenH4853 out of your housesH4480 H1004 on the sabbathH7676 day,H3117 neitherH3808 doH6213 ye anyH3605 work,H4399 but hallowH6942 ye(H853) the sabbathH7676 day,H3117 asH834 I commandedH6680 your fathers.H1

(Jeremiah 17:22) And it shall come to pass,H1961 ifH518 ye diligently hearkenH8085 H8085 untoH413 me, saithH5002 the LORD,H3068 to bring inH935 noH1115 burdenH4853 through the gatesH8179 of thisH2063 cityH5892 on the sabbathH7676 day,H3117 but hallowH6942 (H853) the sabbathH7676 day,H3117 to doH6213 noH1115 H3605 workH4399 therein;

Note: Healing work and emergency work is permitted as per.

(Luke 13:14) AndG1161 theG3588 ruler of the synagogueG752 answeredG611 with indignation,G23 becauseG3754 that JesusG2424 had healedG2323 on theG3588 sabbath day,G4521 and saidG3004 unto theG3588 people,G3793 There areG1526 sixG1803 daysG2250 inG1722 whichG3739 men oughtG1163 to work:G2038 inG1722 themG5025 thereforeG3767 comeG2064 andG2532 be healed,G2323 andG2532 notG3361 on theG3588 sabbathG4521 day.G2250(Luke 13:15 KJV+) TheG3588 LordG2962 thenG3767 answeredG611 him,G846 andG2532 said,G2036 Thou hypocrite,G5273 doth notG3756 each oneG1538 of youG5216 on theG3588 sabbathG4521 looseG3089 hisG848 oxG1016 orG2228 his assG3688 fromG575 theG3588 stall,G5336 andG2532 lead him awayG520 to watering?G4222

And Luke 14:5 confirms:

(Luke 14:5 KJV+) AndG2532 answeredG611 them,G846 saying,G2036 WhichG5101 of youG5216 shall have an assG3688 orG2228 an oxG1016 fallenG1706 intoG1519 a pit,G5421 andG2532 will notG3756 straightwayG2112 pull him outG385 G846 onG1722 theG3588 sabbathG4521 day?G2250

The “Word” is the Logos from Strong’s Concordance:

G3056

λόγος

logos

log’-os

From G3004; something said (including the thought); by implication a topic (subject of discourse), also reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive; by extension a computation; specifically (with the article in John) the Divine Expression (that is, Christ): – account, cause, communication, X concerning, doctrine, fame, X have to do, intent, matter, mouth, preaching, question, reason, + reckon, remove, say (-ing), shew, X speaker, speech, talk, thing, + none of these things move me, tidings, treatise, utterance, word, work.

The Logos made the Sabbath.

The Logos is the Word. The two are the same.

Notice that the Greek word for “word” is “logos”. If the Logos made the Sabbath and it was started at the creation of the Universe and every word in the Scripture is from the “Logos” and the Logos is the Creator of the Universe then by whose authority is the Sabbath created?

Would it not be the “The Word”, “the Logos”, The Messiah, the Son of God, the Creator, all one and the same?

(John 1:14) AndG2532 theG3588 WordG3056 was madeG1096 flesh,G4561 andG2532 dweltG4637 amongG1722 us,G2254 (andG2532 we beheldG2300 hisG846 glory,G1391 the gloryG1391 asG5613 of the only begottenG3439 ofG3844 the Father,)G3962 fullG4134 of graceG5485 andG2532 truth.G225

(Rom 1:3) ConcerningG4012 hisG848 SonG5207 JesusG2424 ChristG5547 ourG2257 Lord,G2962 whichG3588 was madeG1096 ofG1537 the seedG4690 of DavidG1138 accordingG2596 to the flesh;G4561

What was the first Word that the Logos spoke?

(Genesis 1:3 KJV+) And GodH430 said,H559 Let there beH1961 light:H216 and there wasH1961 light.H216

So did every other Word in the Scripture proceed out of the same mouth?

Shall man live by bread alone, or by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God?

Why was the Sabbath made?

(Mar 2:27) AndG2532 he saidG3004 unto them,G846 TheG3588 sabbathG4521 was madeG1096 forG1223 man,G444 and notG3756 manG444 forG1223 theG3588 sabbath:G4521

Let us read that verse using different words, for instance:

The ‘Rest’ was made for man, and not man for ‘rest’.

This Sabbath was the day God Almighty sanctified for rest.

Man needs rest.

Who is the supreme authority over the Sabbath?

Who is “Lord of the Sabbath? What did Jesus Christ (Yasha Yahushua) say about the Sabbath?

(Mat 12:8) ForG1063 theG3588 SonG5207 of manG444 isG2076 LordG2962 evenG2532 of theG3588 sabbath day.G4521

(Mar 2:28) ThereforeG5620 theG3588 SonG5207 of manG444 isG2076 LordG2962 alsoG2532 of theG3588 sabbath.G4521

(Luke 6:5) AndG2532 he saidG3004 unto them,G846 ThatG3754 theG3588 SonG5207 of manG444 isG2076 LordG2962 alsoG2532 of theG3588 sabbath.G4521

(Luke 13:15) TheG3588 LordG2962 thenG3767 answeredG611 him,G846 andG2532 said,G2036Thou hypocrite,G5273 doth notG3756 each oneG1538 of youG5216 on theG3588 sabbathG4521 looseG3089 hisG848 oxG1016 orG2228his assG3688 fromG575 theG3588 stall,G5336 andG2532 lead him awayG520 to watering?G4222

A quick note on this Luke 13:15 is that permissible activity on the Sabbath would include feeding and watering animals that are caged or stalled.

God created the Sabbath by resting from all his works.

So God, the “Logos”, spoke everything into existence and we have this “Logos” recorded in the Scripture.

He is the Logos:

What is the “Logos” or the “Word”? John 1:1 ff.

Col 1:16 ForG3754 byG1722 himG846 were all thingsG3956 created,G2936 thatG3588 are inG1722 heaven,G3772 andG2532 thatG3588 are inG1909 earth,G1093 visibleG3707 andG2532 invisible,G517 whetherG1535they be thrones,G2362 orG1535 dominions,G2963 orG1535 principalities,G746 orG1535 powers:G1849 all thingsG3956 were createdG2936 byG1223 him,G846 andG2532 forG1519 him:G846

The Scripture tells us that Yahushua is the Creator of all that is:

Col 1:17 AndG2532 heG846 isG2076 beforeG4253 all things,G3956 andG2532 byG1722 himG846 all thingsG3956

(1Co 8:6) ButG235 to usG2254there is but oneG1520 God,G2316 theG3588 Father,G3962 ofG1537 whomG3739are all things,G3956 andG2532 weG2249 inG1519 him;G846 andG2532 oneG1520 LordG2962 JesusG2424 Christ,G5547 byG1223 whomG3739are all things,G3956 andG2532 weG2249 byG1223 him.G846

(Col 1:16) ForG3754 byG1722 himG846 were all thingsG3956 created,G2936 thatG3588 are inG1722 heaven,G3772 andG2532 thatG3588 are inG1909 earth,G1093 visibleG3707 andG2532 invisible,G517 whetherG1535they be thrones,G2362 orG1535 dominions,G2963 orG1535 principalities,G746 orG1535 powers:G1849 all thingsG3956 were createdG2936 byG1223 him,G846 andG2532 forG1519 him:G846

(Col 1:20) And,G2532 having made peaceG1517 throughG1223 theG3588 bloodG129 of hisG846 cross,G4716 byG1223 himG846 to reconcileG604 all thingsG3956 untoG1519 himself;G848 byG1223 him,G846I say, whetherG1535they be thingsG3588 inG1909 earth,G1093 orG1535 thingsG3588 inG1722 heaven.G3772

(Heb 2:10) ForG1063 it becameG4241 him,G846 forG1223 whomG3739are all things,G3956 andG2532 byG1223 whomG3739are all things,G3956 in bringingG71 manyG4183 sonsG5207 untoG1519 glory,G1391 to make the captain of their salvation perfectG5048 G3588 G747 G846 G4991 throughG1223 sufferings.G3804

So it is through Him that all is in existence. By Him, For Him and In Him.

He spoke and it was created and continues to be.

So by the same Authority/Sovereign Power/God/Law-maker/Creator the Universe came into existence and this same authority gave the laws associated with the Universe (such as the law of gravity and the weak nuclear force and the force that keeps the planets in their orbits) as well as the Moral Law.

Almighty God created the law that he spoke to Moses in the presence of all the people:

God does not change: He gave the law and made the commandments and has not repealed them.

Mal 3:6 ForH3588 IH589am the LORD,H3068 I changeH8138 not;H3808 therefore yeH859 sonsH1121 of JacobH3290 are notH3808 consumed.H3615

His word proceeds from his mouth and will not return to him void as it says in Isaiah:

Isaiah 55:11 SoH3651 shall my wordH1697 beH1961 thatH834 goeth forthH3318 out of my mouth:H4480 H6310 it shall notH3808 returnH7725 untoH413 me void,H7387 butH3588 H518 it shall accomplishH6213 (H853) that whichH834 I please,H2654 and it shall prosperH6743in the thing wheretoH834 I sentH7971 it.

God’s Word is truth and we are to be Holy people.

(1Ki 17:24) And the womanH802 saidH559 toH413 Elijah,H452 NowH6258 by thisH2088 I knowH3045 thatH3588 thouH859art a manH376 of God,H430and that the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 in thy mouthH6310is truth.H571

(John 17:17) SanctifyG37 themG846 throughG1722 thyG4675 truth:G225 thyG4674 wordG3056 isG2076 truth.G225

We are to be a “peculiar” people who obey Him and keep his commandments.

(Exodus 19:5) NowH6258 therefore, ifH518 ye will obey my voice indeed,H8085 H8085 H6963 and keepH8104 (H853) my covenant,H1285 then ye shall beH1961 a peculiar treasureH5459 unto me above allH4480 H3605 people:H5971 forH3588 allH3605 the earthH776is mine:

(Tit 2:14) WhoG3739 gaveG1325 himselfG1438 forG5228 us,G2257 thatG2443 he might redeemG3084 usG2248 fromG575 allG3956 iniquity,G458 andG2532 purifyG2511 unto himselfG1438 a peculiarG4041 people,G2992 zealousG2207 of goodG2570 works.G2041

(1Pe 2:9) ButG1161 yeG5210are a chosenG1588 generation,G1085 a royalG934 priesthood,G2406 an holyG40 nation,G1484 a peculiarG1519 G4047 people;G2992 thatG3704 ye should shew forthG1804 theG3588 praisesG703 of himG3588 who hath calledG2564 youG5209 out ofG1537 darknessG4655 intoG1519 hisG846 marvellousG2298 light:G5457

The people of the covenant are going to appear strange to the world. They will be weird because they will be obeying His Word.

People died for this right to obey God and keep his commandments. In the end times there will be another great persecution. Many will fall away.

The initiation of the Law:

When did the law start?

Day 7 of the Creation of the Universe.

  1. The Law was in full force and affect well before God gave it to Moses and the people.

a. He taught it to Adam in the garden when he said:

Gen 2:16 And the LORDH3068 GodH430 commandedH6680 H5921 the man,H120 saying,H559 Of everyH4480 H3605 treeH6086 of the gardenH1588 thou mayest freely eat:H398 H398

Gen 2:17 But of the treeH4480 H6086 of the knowledgeH1847 of goodH2896 and evil,H7451 thou shalt notH3808 eatH398 ofH4480 it: forH3588 in the dayH3117 that thou eatestH398 thereofH4480 thou shalt surely die.H4191 H4191

    1. Abraham received his blessing because he kept the commands

Gen 26:4 And I will make(H853) thy seedH2233 to multiplyH7235 as the starsH3556 of heaven,H8064 and will giveH5414 unto thy seedH2233 (H853) allH3605 theseH411 countries;H776 and in thy seedH2233 shall allH3605 the nationsH1471 of the earthH776 be blessed;H1288

Gen 26:5 BecauseH6118 thatH834 AbrahamH85 obeyedH8085 my voice,H6963 and keptH8104 my charge,H4931 my commandments,H4687 my statutes,H2708 and my laws.H8451

And the Hebrew word for “Law” is

H8451

תּרה תּורה

tôrâh tôrâh

to-raw’,to-raw’

From H3384; a precept or statute, especially the Decalogue or Pentateuch: – law.

Gen 15:5 And he brought him forthH3318 (H853) abroad,H2351 and said,H559 LookH5027 nowH4994 toward heaven,H8064 and tellH5608 the stars,H3556 ifH518 thou be ableH3201 to numberH5608 them: and he saidH559 unto him, SoH3541 shall thy seedH2233 be.H1961

Gen 15:6 And he believedH539 in the LORD;H3068 and he countedH2803 it to him for righteousness.H6666

Rom 4:13 ForG1063 theG3588 promise,G1860 that heG846 should beG1511 theG3588 heirG2818 of theG3588 world,G2889was notG3756 to Abraham,G11 orG2228 to hisG848 seed,G4690 throughG1223 the law,G3551 butG235 throughG1223 the righteousnessG1343 of faith.G4102

And notice that the righteousness of faith is interpreted as keeping of the commandments. So Faith in God has to do with keeping the commandments.

    1. And the Just shall live by faith. Abraham walked by faith.

(Ezekiel 18:9) Hath walkedH1980 in my statutes,H2708 and hath keptH8104 my judgments,H4941 to dealH6213 truly;H571 heH1931is just,H6662 he shall surely live,H2421 H2421 saithH5002 the LordH136 GOD.H3069

(Habakkuk 2:4) Behold,H2009 his soulH5315which is lifted upH6075 is not uprightH3474 H3808 in him: but the justH6662 shall liveH2421 by his faith.H530

(Rom 1:17) ForG1063 thereinG1722 G846 is the righteousnessG1343 of GodG2316 revealedG601 fromG1537 faithG4102 toG1519 faith:G4102 asG2531 it is written,G1125 (G1161) TheG3588 justG1342 shall liveG2198 byG1537 faith.G4102

(Gal 3:11) ButG1161 thatG3754 no manG3762 is justifiedG1344 byG1722 the lawG3551 in the sightG3844 of God,G2316it is evident:G1212 for,G3754 TheG3588 justG1342 shall liveG2198 byG1537 faith.G4102

(Heb 10:38) NowG1161 theG3588 justG1342 shall liveG2198 byG1537 faith:G4102 butG2532 ifG1437any man draw back,G5288 myG3450 soulG5590 shall have no pleasureG2106 G3756 inG1722 him.G846

    1. Even Noah had the law. And by his keeping of God’s law he was saved in the ark. 8 people were spared:

1Pe 3:20 Which sometimeG4218 were disobedient,G544 whenG3753 onceG530 theG3588 longsufferingG3115 of GodG2316 waitedG1551 inG1722 the daysG2250 of Noah,G3575 while the arkG2787 was a preparing,G2680 whereinG1519 G3739 few,G3641 that is,G5123 eightG3638 soulsG5590 were savedG1295 byG1223 water.G5204

    1. Noah was a preacher of Righteousness.

2Pe 2:5 AndG2532 sparedG5339 notG3756 the oldG744 world,G2889 butG235 savedG5442 NoahG3575 the eighthG3590person, a preacherG2783 of righteousness,G1343 bringing inG1863 the floodG2627 upon the worldG2889 of the ungodly;G765

    1. His Word is Righteousness. The word for Righteousness comes from the word for commandments. Psalm 119: 172; Righteousness is Commandments

Psalms 119:172 My tongueH3956 shall speakH6030 of thy word:H565 forH3588 allH3605 thy commandmentsH4687are righteousness.H6664

    1. The Law of God is Righteous. The Law of God is Commandments.

Psalms 19:9 The fearH3374 of the LORDH3068is clean,H2889 enduringH5975 for ever:H5703 the judgmentsH4941 of the LORDH3068are trueH571and righteousH6663 altogether.H3162

(Deuteronomy 6:25 KJV+) And it shall beH1961 our righteousness,H6666 ifH3588 we observeH8104 to doH6213 (H853) allH3605 theseH2063 commandmentsH4687 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068 our God,H430 asH834 he hath commandedH6680 us.

    1. The Word of God is for teaching Righteousness

2Ti 3:16 AllG3956 scriptureG1124is given by inspiration of God,G2315 andG2532is profitableG5624 forG4314 doctrine,G1319 forG4314 reproof,G1650 forG4314 correction,G1882 forG4314 instructionG3809 inG1722 righteousness:G1343

(Deuteronomy 6:20 KJV+) And whenH3588 thy sonH1121 askethH7592 thee in time to come,H4279 saying,H559 WhatH4100mean the testimonies,H5713 and the statutes,H2706 and the judgments,H4941 whichH834 the LORDH3068 our GodH430 hath commandedH6680 you?

(Deuteronomy 6:21 KJV+) Then thou shalt sayH559 unto thy son,H1121 We wereH1961 Pharaoh’sH6547 bondmenH5650 in Egypt;H4714 and the LORDH3068 brought us outH3318 of EgyptH4480 H4714 with a mightyH2389 hand:H3027

(Deuteronomy 6:22 KJV+) And the LORDH3068 shewedH5414 signsH226 and wonders,H4159 greatH1419 and sore,H7451 upon Egypt,H4714 upon Pharaoh,H6547 and upon allH3605 his household,H1004 before our eyes:H5869

(Deuteronomy 6:23 KJV+) And he brought us outH3318 (H853) from thence,H4480 H8033 thatH4616 he might bring us in,H935 (H853) to giveH5414 us(H853) the landH776 whichH834 he swareH7650 unto our fathers.H1

(Deuteronomy 6:24 KJV+) And the LORDH3068 commandedH6680 us to doH6213 (H853) allH3605 theseH428 statutes,H2706 to fearH3372 the(H853) LORDH3068 our God,H430 for our goodH2896 always,H3605 H3117 that he might preserve us alive,H2421 as it is at thisH2088 day.H3117

(Deuteronomy 6:25 KJV+) And it shall beH1961 our righteousness,H6666 ifH3588 we observeH8104 to doH6213 (H853) allH3605 theseH2063 commandmentsH4687 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068 our God,H430 asH834 he hath commandedH6680 us.

    1. And again, Unrighteousness is sin and the breaking of the Commandments is sin.

1Jn 5:17 AllG3956 unrighteousnessG93 isG2076 sin:G266 andG2532 there isG2076 a sinG266 notG3756 untoG4314 death.G2288

1Jn 3:4 WhosoeverG3956 committethG4160 sinG266 transgresseth also the law:G4160 G2532 G458 forG2532 sinG266 isG2076 theG3588 transgression of the law.G458

    1. Even before God gave the law to the people at Mount Sinai, Even before the Exodus from bondage the law was in effect because Pharaoh was complaining to Moses concerning it as per Exodus:

(Exodus 5:5 KJV+) And PharaohH6547 said,H559 Behold,H2005 the peopleH5971 of the landH776 nowH6258 are many,H7227 and ye make them restH7673 (H853) from their burdens.H4480 H5450

Defining necessary words.

  1. And the word for lawlessness is “Anomia”.

  2. The word for “law” in the Greek is “Nomos”

  3. And the Greek word for “name” is “Onomah”.

Transgression of the Law” and the word “iniquity” is from the Greek word “anomia”. The “a” before the “nomos” negates the word. So it means No law, and perhaps “no name” as the word seems to imply.

G458

ἀνομία

anomia

an-om-ee’-ah

From G459; illegality, that is, violationoflaw or (generally) wickedness: – iniquity, X transgress (-ion of) the law, unrighteousness.

The use of the word “Anomia” in the New Testament are:

Quick reference of the use of the word:

Mat_7:23; Mat_13:41; Mat_23:28; Mat_24:12; Rom_4:7; Rom_6:19; 2Co_6:14; 2Th_2:7; Tit_2:14; Heb_1:9; Heb_8:12; Heb_10:17; 1Jn_3:4;

(Mat 7:23) AndG2532 thenG5119 will I professG3670 unto them,G846 I neverG3763 knewG1097 you:G5209 departG672 fromG575 me,G1700 ye that workG2038 iniquity.G458

(Mat 13:41) TheG3588 SonG5207 of manG444 shall send forthG649 hisG846 angels,G32 andG2532 they shall gatherG4816 out ofG1537 hisG848 kingdomG932 all thingsG3956 that offend,G4625 andG2532 them which doG4160 iniquity;G458

(1Jn 3:4) WhosoeverG3956 committethG4160 sinG266 transgresseth also the law:G4160 G2532 G458 forG2532 sinG266 isG2076 theG3588 transgression of the law.G458

And does that word remind you of any English word?

Perhaps the word Anonymous?

So we are anonymous to God when we commit sin.

We are nameless, anonymous, lost.

  1. Nomos = Law

(Mat 5:17) ThinkG3543 notG3361 thatG3754 I am comeG2064 to destroyG2647 theG3588 law,G3551 orG2228 theG3588 prophets:G4396 I am notG3756 comeG2064 to destroy,G2647 butG235 to fulfil.G4137

  1. Onomah” means ‘Name’: He knows his stars by name (the stars obey his laws) and he knows the Righteous by Name! They don’t break His Law.

Strong’s word:

G3686

ὄνομα

onoma

on’-om-ah

From a presumed derivative of the base of G1097 (compare G3685); a “name” (literally or figuratively), (authority, character): – called, (+ sur-) name (-d).

(Exodus 33:17)

And the LORDH3068 saidH559 untoH413 Moses,H4872 I will doH6213 (H853) thisH2088 thingH1697 alsoH1571 thatH834 thou hast spoken:H1696 forH3588 thou hast foundH4672 graceH2580 in my sight,H5869 and I knowH3045 thee by name.H8034

Which word explains the words of Jesus (Yahushua) where he says:

Depart from me you that work iniquity, I Never Knew you.

He did not say I don’t know you, but that I NEVER knew you.

Because if we break his “Logos”, his Word, then it is because we are not paying attention to what He has said.

What has he said?

He has spoken the entire universe into existence.

He spoke the physical laws into place and he spoke the Law for his people into place and he has spoken the Word that we are reading here today.

It is the same Word that Jesus (Yahushua) spoke about while he walked around on the planet and He referred to it about every time he spoke to the people.

Mat 7:23 AndG2532 thenG5119 will I professG3670 unto them,G846 I neverG3763 knewG1097 you:G5209 departG672 fromG575 me,G1700 ye that workG2038 iniquity.G458

The Law of Yah is Perfect

Psalms 19:7 The lawH8451 of the LORDH3068is perfect,H8549 convertingH7725 the soul:H5315 the testimonyH5715 of the LORDH3068is sure,H539 making wiseH2449 the simple.H6612

Psalms 19:8 The statutesH6490 of the LORDH3068are right,H3477 rejoicingH8055 the heart:H3820 the commandmentH4687 of the LORDH3068is pure,H1249 enlighteningH215 the eyes.H5869

Summing up:

The Foundation of the Sabbath is the Creator, the Creator is Yahushua, and was from the beginning as recorded in Genesis.

The Sabbath is mentioned 147 times in both testaments.

The Sabbath is commanded, not suggested. It is in the Ten Commandments, the fourth commandment, to be precise.


And Commands are to be obeyed. And his commandments are for our benefit.

God has been with me all this time protecting me and keeping me safe. HalleluYAH!!!!!!!

Heb 13:8 JesusG2424 ChristG5547 theG3588 sameG846 yesterday,G5504 andG2532 to day,G4594 andG2532 for ever.G1519 G165

Yahushua, the Messiah, (Jesus Christ) Warned us:

Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men…. [Y]e reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition” (Mark 7:7-9).

We are warned again that there will come time when the preachers will be teaching corrupt doctrine:

1Ti 4:1 NowG1161 theG3588 SpiritG4151 speakethG3004 expressly,G4490 thatG3754 inG1722 the latterG5306 timesG2540 someG5100 shall departG868 from theG3588 faith,G4102 giving heedG4337 to seducingG4108 spirits,G4151 andG2532 doctrinesG1319 of devils;G1140

Isaiah 56:9-12 KJV+ AllH3605 ye beastsH2416 of the field,H7704 comeH857 to devour,H398 yea, allH3605 ye beastsH2416 in the forest.H3293 (10) His watchmenH6822 are blind:H5787 they are allH3605 ignorant,H3808 H3045 they are allH3605 dumbH483 dogs,H3611 they cannotH3201 H3808 bark;H5024 sleeping,H1957 lying down,H7901 lovingH157 to slumber.H5123 (11) Yea, they are greedyH5794 H5315 dogsH3611 which can neverH3808 haveH3045 enough,H7654 and theyH1992 are shepherdsH7462 that cannotH3045 H3808 understand:H995 they allH3605 lookH6437 to their own way,H1870 every oneH376 for his gain,H1215 from his quarter.H4480 H7097 (12) ComeH857 ye, say they, I will fetchH3947 wine,H3196 and we will fillH5433 ourselves with strong drink;H7941 and to morrowH4279 shall beH1961 as thisH2088 day,H3117 and muchH3966 more abundant.H3499 H1419

And as a result God’s people will perish for a lack of knowledge:

(Hosea 4:6 KJV+) My peopleH5971 are destroyedH1820 for lackH4480 H1097 of knowledge: H1847 becauseH3588 thouH859 hast rejectedH3988 knowledge, H1847 I will also rejectH3988 thee, that thou shalt be no priestH4480 H3547 to me: seeing thou hast forgottenH7911 the lawH8451 of thy God, H430 IH589 will alsoH1571 forgetH7911 thy children.H1121

Don’t be part of the Great Falling Away because of refusal to hear His Word.

Isaiah 66:22-24 KJV+

(22) ForH3588 asH834 the newH2319 heavensH8064 and the newH2319 earth,H776 whichH834 IH589 will make,H6213 shall remainH5975 beforeH6440 me, saithH5002 the LORD,H3068 soH3651 shall your seedH2233 and your nameH8034 remain.H5975

(23) And it shall come to pass,H1961that fromH4480 H1767 one new moonH2320 to another,H2320 and fromH4480 H1767 one sabbathH7676 to another,H7676 shall allH3605 fleshH1320 comeH935 to worshipH7812 beforeH6440 me, saithH559 the LORD.H3068

(24) And they shall go forth,H3318 and lookH7200 upon the carcasesH6297 of the menH376 that have transgressedH6586 against me: forH3588 their wormH8438 shall notH3808 die,H4191 neitherH3808 shall their fireH784 be quenched;H3518 and they shall beH1961 an abhorringH1860 unto allH3605 flesh.H1320

Appendix

The word for Law is Nomos as used in this verse and other verses:

It appears 172 times:

Nomos = Law

(Mat 5:17) ThinkG3543 notG3361 thatG3754 I am comeG2064 to destroyG2647 theG3588 law,G3551 orG2228 theG3588 prophets:G4396 I am notG3756 comeG2064 to destroy,G2647 butG235 to fulfil.G4137

Anomos=Lawless

And the word Anomos, or lawlessness appears:

1Ti_1:9;

Transgression of the law is also translated from G458 Anomia:

1Jn 3:4 WhosoeverG3956 committethG4160 sinG266 transgresseth also the law:G4160 G2532 G458 forG2532 sinG266 isG2076 theG3588 transgression of the law.G458


Appendix 2:

(Collected from E-Sword created by Rick Meyers).

Appendix

What did Jesus Christ Abolish? Did He abolish the law?

2Ti 1:10 ButG1161 is nowG3568 made manifestG5319 byG1223 theG3588 appearingG2015 of ourG2257 SaviourG4990 JesusG2424 Christ,G5547 who hath abolishedG2673(G3303) death,G2288 andG1161 hath brought life and immortality to lightG5461 G2222 G2532 G861 throughG1223 theG3588 gospel:G2098

What did Yahushua actually abolish? Did he do away with the Moral Law? Or did he do away with only the Sacrifice law for sin because he was himself the Sacrifice for sin?

Hebrews 10:8-10 KJV+

(8) AboveG511 when he said,G3004 SacrificeG2378 andG2532 offeringG4374 andG2532 burnt offeringsG3646 andG2532offering forG4012 sinG266 thou wouldestG2309 not,G3756 neitherG3761 hadst pleasureG2106therein; whichG3748 are offeredG4376 byG2596 theG3588 law;G3551

(9) ThenG5119 saidG2046 he, Lo,G2400 I comeG2240 to doG4160 thyG4675 will,G2307 O God.G2316 He taketh awayG337 theG3588 first,G4413 thatG2443 he may establishG2476 theG3588 second.G1208

(10) ByG1722 the whichG3739 willG2307 we areG2070 sanctifiedG37 throughG1223 theG3588 offeringG4376 of theG3588 bodyG4983 of JesusG2424 ChristG5547 onceG2178for all.

(Ephesians 2:15)

Having abolishedG2673 inG1722 hisG848 fleshG4561 theG3588 enmity,G2189even theG3588 lawG3551 of commandmentsG1785contained inG1722 ordinances;G1378 for toG2443 makeG2936 inG1722 himselfG1438 of twainG1417 (G1519) oneG1520 newG2537 man,G444so makingG4160 peace;G1515

(Colossians 2:14)

Blotting outG1813 theG3588 handwritingG5498 of ordinancesG1378 that was againstG2596 us,G2257 whichG3739 wasG2258 contraryG5227 to us,G2254 andG2532 tookG142 itG846 out ofG1537 theG3588 way,G3319 nailingG4338 itG846 to his cross;G4716

G1378 δόγμα dogma dog’-mah

From the base of G1380; a law (civil, ceremonial or ecclesiastical): – decree, ordinance.

G1379 δογματίζω dogmatizōdog-mat-id’-zo

From G1378; to prescribe by statute, that is, (reflexively) to submitto ceremonial rule: – be subject to ordinances.

(Colossians 2:20)

WhereforeG3767 ifG1487 ye be deadG599 withG4862 ChristG5547 fromG575 theG3588 rudimentsG4747 of theG3588 world,G2889 why,G5101 as thoughG5613 livingG2198 inG1722 the world,G2889 are ye subject to ordinances,G1379

(Hebrews 9:1)

ThenG3767 verilyG3303 theG3588 firstG4413covenant hadG2192 alsoG2532 ordinancesG1345 of divine service,G2999 andG5037 a worldlyG2886 sanctuary.G39

The law done away with appears to be more likely the ceremonial law associated with the sacrifice for sin.

(Hebrews 9:10)

Which stood onlyG3440 inG1909 meatsG1033 andG2532 drinks,G4188 andG2532 diversG1313 washings,G909 andG2532 carnalG4561 ordinances,G1345 imposedG1945on them untilG3360 the timeG2540 of reformation.G1357

The word used here “ordinances” is from the Greek word: G1345 δικαίωμα dikaiōma dik-ah’-yo-mah

From G1344; an equitabledeed; by implication a statute or decision: – judgment, justification, ordinance, righteousness.

Would Yahushua (Jesus) have done away with the 10 commandments after having spoken the word and ensured that 2000 years later we had a copy of it?

Luke 10:7 AndG1161 inG1722 theG3588 sameG846 houseG3614 remain,G3306 eatingG2068 andG2532 drinkingG4095 such things as they give:G3588 G3844 G846 forG1063 theG3588 labourerG2040 isG2076 worthyG514 of hisG848 hire.G3408 GoG3327 notG3361 fromG1537 houseG3614 toG1519 house.G3614

Luke 10:8 AndG2532 intoG1519(G1161) whatsoeverG3739 G302 cityG4172 ye enter,G1525 andG2532 they receiveG1209 you,G5209 eatG2068 such things as are set beforeG3908 you:G5213

Appreciations for this work: this work would not have come into existence without much assistance:

I want to thank first God Almighty, Creator, for the opportunity to serve Him by faith, not having seen him yet; but knowing of His Sovereignty in my mind and heart. I see Him by the evidence presented to my mind by the operation of His Laws.

(2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV+) (ForG1063 we walkG4043 byG1223 faith,G4102 notG3756 byG1223 sight:)G1491

(Hebrews 11:1 KJV+) NowG1161 faithG4102 isG2076 the substanceG5287 of things hoped for,G1679 the evidenceG1650 of thingsG4229 notG3756 seen.G991

Also, I am indebted to Mark Woodman who died a few years ago but his work on teaching the Scripture has been valuable to me in my journey of understanding the Sabbath. (Markwoodman.com; Markwoodman.blogspot.com).

Warning on these other books: The Ivan Panin New Testament appears to be based upon the translation that is missing many Scriptures as compared to the King James Version. The Word of YAH, although it restores the name of God seems to play too lightly with the Word in opening meaning. I have my reservations about these books and leave you, dear Reader, with two witnesses.

1. (Deuteronomy 12:32 KJV+)(H853) What thing soeverH3605 H1697 H834 IH595 commandH6680 you, observeH8104 to doH6213 it: thou shalt notH3808 addH3254 thereto,H5921 norH3808 diminishH1639 fromH4480 it.

2. (Revelation 22:18 KJV+) ForG1063 I testifyG4828 unto every manG3956 that hearethG191 theG3588 wordsG3056 of theG3588 prophecyG4394 of thisG5127 book,G975 IfG1437 any manG5100 shall addG2007 untoG4314 these things,G5023 GodG2316 shall addG2007 untoG1909 himG846 theG3588 plaguesG4127 that are writtenG1125 inG1722 thisG5129 book:G975

(Revelation 22:19 KJV+) AndG2532 ifG1437 any manG5100 shall take awayG851 fromG575 theG3588 wordsG3056 of the bookG976 of thisG5026 prophecy,G4394 GodG2316 shall take awayG851 hisG846 partG3313 out ofG575 the bookG976 of life,G2222 andG2532 out ofG1537 theG3588 holyG40 city,G4172 andG2532from the things which are writtenG1125 inG1722 thisG5129 book.G975

Post Script

Sabbath day

6/8/13

This came to my mind today:

God warned me in dreams before I went up to (Private)Mo to meet the (private name)’s.

I got the “Word is Corrupted dream” In this dream I come upon a pile of debris upon which I find a book. I pick up the book and open it up and it is the Scripture, but inside the Scripture are missing words and it is full of black nasty looking hairy worms that are eating the words in the book and removing many of them.

Purple oil dream: Look what he did, the child yells out after the purple oil container was ripped and the purple oil spilled out. He looked at me with huge opened eyes. Then the next scene of the dream I am in a room that has flooded.

Then I am running through the wilderness and I realize I have already left safety and was on the way. ( I wish I had heeded this dream and stopped and thought before going to Missouri).

The I got the “deal in the wilderness” dream where I was running and George put his hand around my shoulders and decided to make a deal ( find the audio of it)

After: I got the “Perfect forms in Sand” dream tolerances in sand.

The man in the dream said, “I’m a pastor” as he polished the sand formations he had made.
