Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s.

 

Today is April 29, 2017 – in the 21 Century

 

April -- Aphrodite's month

Old English April(is)
Latin Aprilis
Etruscan Apru
Greek Aphro, short for Aphrodite.

Aprilis had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 30 days long.

 

Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love and beauty. She is identified with the Roman goddess Venus.

--------------

 

Yehovah God has His own calendar, which is deleted from the world

 

We are now in the 2nd month of God called Ziv / Zif, second day

You can start your own scriptural calendar.

 

1 Kgs. 6 [1] And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of Yehovah.

זִו - ziv - brightness, (figuratively) the month of flowers

***Make sure you change your Judaism calendars – The 2nd month is not Iyyar as Judaism and some Messianics state.

 

A few days in April / May

----------------

 

This is the second Sabbath of the 7 Sabbaths we were told to count

Lev.23[15] And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be complete: [16] Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto Yehovah.

[21] And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

 

 

Spring Feast - Feasts of Weeks / Harvest / Pentecost – Sunday June 4th, 2017 – a Sabbath

 

50 days from First Fruits:

 

Judaism and some Messianics are counting the “omer”. They still cannot follow the scriptures correctly.

 

Remember we will be counting "weeks", Sabbaths not omers

An "omer" is a "sheaf" of barley

 

עמר  omer  - A dry measure of 1/10 ephah (about 2 liters)

Feast of Weeks, Hag Sh'vu-ot - חַג שָׁבֻעֹת  

Feast of Harvest Hag ha katseer - חַג הַקָּצִיר

Pentecost = 50 days

(A Sabbath) Sunday, (there are 2 Sabbaths in a row)

 

“Offering time”

Exod.23 [14] Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto Me in the year.


[15] Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month ha Aviv / Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)

 

[16] And the feast of harvest, Weeks, Pentecost, the first fruits (wheat) of thy labors, which thou hast sown in the field:

 

and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field. [17] Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before Lord Yehovah.

 

Also:

Deut.16 [16] Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before Yehovah thy God in the place which he shall choose;

 

in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles:

 and they shall not appear before Yehovah empty:


[17] Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of Yehovah thy God which he hath given thee.

------------------------------------------------------

Lev. 23

[1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,


[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.

[3] Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.

[4] These are the feasts of Yehovah, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

[44] And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of Yehovah.

-------------------------------

 

I will explain how to keep the Sabbath if needed

 

This is how simple it is:

 

Question: So why are we here today?

 

Answer: We were told to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy.

 

Sabbath is the “4th Commandment” 0f the 10 Commandments

 

Today is the rest of the holy Sabbath unto Yehovah

 

I will explain the Sabbath day from Scripture, the 7th day.

 

The Sabbath is not a service for an hour and a half, but a 24 hour period on the seventh day.

 

Not any day you pick.

---------------

Gen.2 [1] Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

[2] And on the seventh day God ended his work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made.

[3] And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made.

-------------

 

Lev. 23 [32] … from even (sunset) unto even (sunset), shall ye celebrate your Sabbath.

 

The Sabbath is the 4th Commandment of the covenant given to us at Mount Sinai in the 3rd month, Sivan

 

The 10 commandments are in Exod. 20 and Deut. 5 - if you just know this, you will know more than most ministers.

 

זכר Remember

zâkar - zaw-kar' - A primitive root; properly to mark (so as to be recognized), that is, to remember; by implication to mention; make mention of, be mindful, recount, record (-er), remember, make to be remembered, bring (call, come, keep, put) to (in) remembrance, be still, think on, well.

 

Ex. 20 [8] Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

[9] Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

[10] But the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yehovah thy God:

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:

[11] For in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yehovah blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

--------

 

Isa. 58 [13] If thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of Yehovah, honorable; and shalt honor him,

 

1 - not doing thine (your) own ways

 

2 - nor finding thine (your) own pleasure

 

3 - nor speaking thine (your) own words:

 

[14] Then shalt thou delight thyself in Yehovah; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of Yehovah hath spoken it.

 

------------

 

Lev. 23 [3] Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, an "holy convocation"; ye shall do no work therein: it is the Sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.

 

Dwelling:מושׁב  môshâv - seat, assembly, dwelling-place, dwelling, your situation, location, (at) time of dwelling.

 

All Sabbaths are "holy convocations, a miqra kodesh"

Lev.23

[1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are My feasts.


[3] Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the Sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.


[4] These are the feasts of Yehovah, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

 

מקרא miqra: convocation, convoking, reading, a calling  together, sacred assembly, something called out, that is, a public meeting (the act, the persons, or the place); also a rehearsal

 

קדשׁ kodesh: a sacred place or thing; consecrated, dedicated, hallowed, holiness, saint, sanctuary, apartness, sacredness, separateness, apartness, sacredness, holiness: All to the God of Israel.

------------

Buying and selling is evil on the Sabbath.

Neh. 13 [16] There dwelt men of Tyre also therein, which brought fish, and all manner of ware, and sold on the sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem.

[17] Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said unto them, what evil thing is this that ye do, and profane the Sabbath day?

 

---------------------------

The "7 week" journey to meet God - again

How will you behave yourselves these 50 days? (Physically and Spiritually)

Remember:  you are the "Temple of the Living God" and the "Light of the World"?

--------------------------

From slaves in Egypt to the people of God

A "7 week" journey to consider again,

To receive the giving of the Torah / Law (and the 10 commandments) and the Holy Spirit

We just got the leaven out (sin)

Right after triumphing gloriously, murmuring started, last week’s study

------------------------------------

 

Today’s topic:

2nd Sabbath is recorded

Our testimony, the record of our short lives

What have you done so far in your life?

Some testimonies are good, some bad.

Life is one big journey, beware of sin!

 

Is the God of Israel with you? Do you hear His voice?

Are you meeting God on His appointed times, His congregations, assemblies, seasons, feasts, solemnities, with His people?

Most of the world is all doing the wrong feasts, going to the wrong assemblies, meeting with the wrong people and gods.

------

All the testimonies from scripture are for our admonition.

Saul tells us:

1Cor.10 [11] Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition…

Testimony

Something evidential, proof, open declaration or profession (generally) evidence given - to be testified, testimony, witness or record.

עֵדוּת

êdûth - ay-dooth'

Feminine noun - testimony: - testimony, witness.

עֵד

êd - ayd

concretely a witness; abstractly testimony; specifically a recorder, that is, prince: - witness.

עוּד

ûd - ood

A primitive root; to duplicate or repeat; by implication to protest, testify (as by reiteration); restore (as a sort of reduplication): - to record, give warning, witness

---------------------------

Records were always kept and maintained

20 matches in TaNaKh

23 matches in Gospels / letters

Here are a few terms:

Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder  מַזְכִּיר

Joah the son of Asaph the recorder

Certain of the Levites to minister before the ark of Yehovah, and to record, and to thank and praise Yehovah God of Israel:

Neh.12 [22] The Levites in the days of Eliashib, Joiada, and Johanan, and Jaddua, were recorded  כְּתוּבִים  chief of the fathers: also the priests, to the reign of Darius the Persian

Ezra. 4 [15] That search may be made in the book of the records of thy fathers: so shalt thou find in the book of the records, and know that this city is a rebellious city, and hurtful unto kings and provinces, and that they have moved sedition within the same of old time: for which cause was this city destroyed.

A record was written

Bring the book of records of the chronicles

Isa.8 [1] Moreover Yehovah said unto me, Take thee a great roll, and write in it with a man's pen concerning Maher-shalal-hash-baz.
[2] And I took unto me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.

John 1[19] And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?

[32] And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

[34] And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

-------------------------------

The light of the world

Matt. 5 [14] You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid, neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

---

Luke. 8 [16] No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. 

---

Luke 11 [33] No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.

The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

---

Phil. 2 [14] Do all things without murmurings and disputings:[15] That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

---

What is your testimony? It is being recorded

2 Thes. 1 [10] When Yeshua shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day

2 Tim. 1[8] Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord Yeshua, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

Heb. 3[5] And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;

 Heb. 11[5] By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

---

Rev. 6[9] And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

Rev. 11 - the 2 Witnesses

[7] And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

Rev. 12[11] And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

----------------

We don’t want to do any deeds or give great occasion to the enemies of the Yehovah to blaspheme

נָאַץ  nâ'ats

A primitive root; to scorn; abhor, (give occasion to) blaspheme, contemn, despise, flourish, provoke.

Σκανδαλον  skandalon skan'-dal-on

A scandal; a snare (figuratively cause of displeasure or sin): - occasion to fall (of stumbling), offence, thing that offends, stumbling-block.

Neither do we want to give any offense to the house of God

Rom.14 [13] Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.

-----------------

Saul tells the Corinthians and us:

1Cor.9 [19] For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

[20] And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;


[21] To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Messiah,) that I might gain them that are without law.

[22] To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men that I might by all means save some. [23] And this I do for the gospel's sake…

---

1Cor.10 [32] Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God: [33] Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

--------------------

Our testimony lives on after we die and is told many years after the fact, possibly many times - consider these verses below which are many years apart:

Num. 3 [2] And these are the names of the sons of Aaron; Nadab the firstborn, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

[4] And Nadab and Abihu died before Yehovah, when they offered strange fire before Yehovah, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children: and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the sight of Aaron their father.

Num. 26 [60] And unto Aaron was born Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. [61] And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before Yehovah.

1Chr. 24 [1] Now these are the divisions of the sons of Aaron. The sons of Aaron; Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

[2] But Nadab and Abihu died before their father, and had no children: therefore Elezar and Ithamar executed the priest's office.

---------------

Other rebels in the camp (also among the leaders)

Korah, Dathan and Abiram, and On - took men: two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown.

Let’s read:

Num. 16

[1] Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men:


[2] And
they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown:


[3] And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and Yehovah is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of Yehovah?

[4] And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:
[5] And he
spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow Yehovah will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him.

[6] This do; Take you censers, Korah, and all his company;
[7] And put fire therein, and put incense in them before
Yehovah to morrow: and it shall be that the man whom Yehovah doth choose, he shall be holy: ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.
[8] And Moses said unto
Korah, Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi:
[9]
Seemeth it but a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself to do the service of the tabernacle of Yehovah, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them?
[10] And he hath brought thee near to
him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the priesthood also?
[11] For which cause both thou and all thy company are gathered together against
Yehovah: and what is Aaron, that ye murmur against him?
[12] And Moses sent to call
Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab: which said, We will not come up:
[13] Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land that
floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except thou make thyself altogether a prince over us?
[14] Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land that
floweth with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up.

[15] And Moses was very wroth, and said unto Yehovah, Respect not thou their offering: I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them.
[16] And Moses said unto
Korah, Be thou and all thy company before Yehovah, thou, and they, and Aaron, to morrow:
[17] And take every man his censer, and put incense in them, and bring ye before
Yehovah every man his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; thou also, and Aaron, each of you his censer.
[18] And they took every man his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon, and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the congregation with Moses and Aaron.
[19] And
Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of Yehovah appeared unto all the congregation.

[20] And Yehovah spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
[21] Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.

[22] And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation?

[23] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,
[24] Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of
Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.
[25] And Moses rose up and went unto
Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him.
[26] And he
spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.

[27] So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children.

[28] And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that Yehovah hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind.

[29] If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then Yehovah hath not sent me.
[30] But if
Yehovah make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked Yehovah.

[31] And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:
[32] And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto
Korah, and all their goods.
[33] They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.

[34] And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.
[35] And there came out a fire from
Yehovah, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.

[36] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,
[37] Speak unto
Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for they are hallowed.
[38] The censers of these sinners against their own
souls, let them make them broad plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before Yehovah, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign unto the children of Israel.

[39] And Eleazar the priest took the brasen censers, wherewith they that were burnt had offered; and they were made broad plates for a covering of the altar:

[40] To be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before Yehovah; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as Yehovah said to him by the hand of Moses.

[41] But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, Ye have killed the people of Yehovah.

[42] And it came to pass, when the congregation was gathered against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the tabernacle of the congregation: and, behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of Yehovah appeared.

[43] And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congregation.

[44] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,
[45]
Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them as in a moment.

And they fell upon their faces.

[46] And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from Yehovah; the plague is begun.
[47] And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation; and, behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on incense, and made
an atonement for the people.
[48] And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.
[49] Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of
Korah.
[50] And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the plague was stayed.

-----------

Our testimony lives on after we die and is told many years after the fact, possibly many times – consider these verses many years after the fact:

Num. 26 [9] And the sons of Eliab; Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. This is that Dathan and Abiram, which were famous in the congregation, who strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korah, when they strove against Yehovah:

[10] And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up together with Korah, when that company died, what time the fire devoured two hundred and fifty men: and they became a sign.

[11] Notwithstanding the children of Korah died not.

Deut. 11 [6] And what he did unto Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, the son of Reuben: how the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households, and their tents, and all the substance that was in their possession, in the midst of all Israel:

Psa. 106 [17] The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.

Jude 1 [11] Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. (Korah)

-----------

Our testimonies live on after we die and are told.

Just think of:

The angels that sinned

Cain

Time of Noah, the flood

Sodom and Gomorrah

Time of Lot

Balaam the son of Bosor

---

The testimony of evil, fallen angels

Rev. 12 [7] And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

[8] And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
[9] And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which
deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Peter, in his letter, brings to remembrance all these testimonies from the past

2 Pet. 2

[1] But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying Yehovah that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
[2] And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of
whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
[3] And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time
lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Starts here:

[4] For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

[5] And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

[6] And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

[7] And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
[8] (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

[9] Yehovah knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

[10] But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities

[11] Whereas angels, which. are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before Yehovah.
[12] But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption
;
[13] And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own
deceivings while they feast with you;
[14] Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

[15] Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
[16] But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

[17] These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
[18] For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
[19] While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption:
for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
[20] For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of  Lord and
Saviour Yeshua the Messiah,  they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
[21] For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness,
than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
[22] But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb,
The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

 

Jude, in his letter, brings to remembrance all these testimonies from the past

Jude

[1] Jude, the servant of Yeshua the Messiah, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Yeshua the Messiah  and called:
[2] Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
[3] Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
[4] For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord
Yeshua the Messiah

[5] I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that Yehovah, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

[6] And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

[7] Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
[8] Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak
evil of dignities.
[9] Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said,
Yehovah rebuke thee.
[10] But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

[11] Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. (Korah)

[12] These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
[13] Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness
for ever.

[14] And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, Yehovah cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
[15] To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
[16] These are
murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.
[17] But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord
Yeshua the Messiah ;
[18] How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
[19] These
be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
[20] But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
[21] Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord
Yeshua the Messiah unto eternal life.
[22] And of some have compassion, making a difference
:
[23] And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
[24] Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

[25] To the only wise God our Saviour, (the Word made flesh - Yeshua the Messiah) be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Other rebels in the camp found out

Other writers, in their letters, also brings to remembrance testimonies from the past, consider these verses below:

Ananias, with Sapphira

Acts.5

[1] But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,
[2] And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
[3] But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled
thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
[4] Whiles it remained, was it not
thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
[5] And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
[6] And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.

[7] And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
[8] And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said,
Yea, for so much.
[9] Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of Yehovah?
behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.
[10] Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her
dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.
[11] And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.

------------

****What more can I say about “Judas”, he betrayed Yeshua, his testimony will live on until the end of the time!

Luke.22 [48] But Yeshua said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? – watch out for false kisses………

------------

These are just a few of the rebels that thought they were hiding in the camp and forgot about their testimonies while they lived – their testimonies also lived on in time.

They forgot God sees all.

God waits and sees if they will repent, if not, it seems like God lets sin ripen, then He executes judgment.

Even Solomon’s evil deeds lived on:

1Kgs.11

[1] But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;
[2] Of the nations concerning which
Yehovah said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.

[3] And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.

[4] For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods:

 and his heart was not perfect with Yehovah his God, as was the heart of David his father.


[
5] For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.

[6] And Solomon did evil in the sight of Yehovah, and went not fully after Yehovah, as did David his father.

[7] Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.
[
8] And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.

Years later told:

Neh.13 [26] Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin.

------------------------

 Your testimony

I hear some people say, I don’t care what people think of me.

These are not the words of a true believer in the God of Israel

Our testimonies will live on after us

 -------------

 

You are the "Temple of the Living God"

and the "Light of the World"

**Dress code**  - People ask me all the time what should I  wear, as far as a dress code, all you have to do is remember that you are the "Temple of the Living God" and the "Light of the World".

This should tell you how to dress. God says be "HOLY" not sexy.

 

1Cor.3 [16] Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?[17] If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

1Cor.6 [18] Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that commiteth fornication sinneth against his own body.

[19] What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
[20] For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's

1 Pet.1 [13] Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Yeshua the Messiah; [14] As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

[15] But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; [16] Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

------------------------

Lev. 20 [7] Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am Yehovah your God.

Heb. 12 [14] Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see Yehovah:

------------------------

Saul says:

1 Tim. 2 [9]… that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; but (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works

Shamefacedness: Modesty or (towards God) awe - reverence

Sobriety: Soundness of mind, that is, (literally) sanity or (figuratively) self control: - soberness, sobriety, moderate as to opinion or passion) - discreet

------------------------

Don’t separate yourself from the flock, the wolf is out there

Acts.20 [28] Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

[29] For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

[30] Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

---------------------

1 John 5[10] He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

[11] And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

---------------------------

In closing:

As we make our "7 week" journey to meet God again, ask yourselves these 2 questions:

How are you behaving these 50 days? (Physically and Spiritually)

Are you truly born again of the Spirit?

"Let us “Tarry” ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high" 

***Are you tarrying or are you leaving?

------------------------

It is good to always examine ourselves and prove all things

 2 Cor. 13 [5] Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Yeshua the Messiah is in you, except ye be reprobates?

 1 Thes. 5 [21] Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

 ----------------------------
