Lets Pray

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

My ministry is to bring up topics in the Bible that have never been discussed, mentioned or deleted in your life that God wants you to know.

------------- 

Today we use the Gregorian calendar (Pope Gregory, 1500's)

August 28, 2010

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

 We restore the calendar of God

 

We are now in the 17th day of the 6th month of God

 

Change your Judaism calendars; Judaism is wrong again by calling the 6th month Elul, no scripture to back that up.

I explain the Sabbath, the 7th day, each week

This is how simple it is:

Exod. 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.

 ------------

Same in Deut. 5

[12] Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as Yehovah thy God hath commanded thee.
[13] Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:
[14] 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, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.

[15] And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that Yehovah thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore Yehovah thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.
------------

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.

--------

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, honourable; and shalt honour him,

1 - not doing thine own ways,

2 - nor finding thine own pleasure,

3 - nor speaking thine 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.

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

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 first day is mentioned only 2 times when they met for a certain event in Acts and the letter to the Corinthians

It never says the 1st day replaced the 7th day as Sabbath

It never says the 1st day is a Commandment or a rest

Acts 20:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

1Corinthians 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

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

We read from law and the prophets every Sabbath like they did in the Book of Acts.

60 times in the Gospels and letters it uses the word Sabbath!

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

 

Today's Topic

Lets talk about the Feasts of Yehovah and the 7 extra Sabbaths

My Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign

Exod. 31

[13] Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am Yehovah that doth sanctify you.

[ 14] Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

[15] Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to Yehovah: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

[16] Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

[17 ] It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

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

Let's look at a few vocabulary words for better understanding:

Servile work- melakat avodah

 avodah - work of any kind: act, bondservant, labor, service. Tillage, work, etc

  melakat - occupation, work, business public business

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

All Sabbaths are Holy Convocations

Holy convocation

kodesh: a sacred place or thing; consecrated, dedicated, hallowed, holiness, saint, sanctuary, apartness, sacredness, separateness, apartness, sacredness, holiness

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

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.

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

The feasts and holydays of Yehovah are all about the Messiahs 1st and 2nd coming

Shadows of things" to come


http://oneinmessiah.net/col216b.asf


Colossians 2:16:

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17: Which are a shadow of "things to come";(future tense)

but the body is of Messiah / Christ.

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

The reason I give you these words in their original language so you can get more exact meaning!

Judge - κρινω krino: to try to condemn, to separate, put asunder, to pick out, to be of opinion, judge, to pronounce an opinion concerning right and wrong, to contend, to dispute

--------

Holyday - εορτη heorte -heh-or-tay' - a festival: - feast, holyday

--------

New moon - νουμηνία - noumēnia - noo-may-nee'-ah - the festival of the new moon

--------

Sabbath days - σάββατον - sabbaton sab'-bat-on Of Hebrew origin - the Sabbath (that is, Shabbath), 7th day of week repose from secular avocations (also the observance or institution itself); Also there are 7 extra sabbaths in the feasts of Yehovah.

--------

Shadow - σκια skia : shadow, an image cast by an object and representing the form of that object, a sketch, outline

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

Passover mentioned 28 times

Messiah our Passover

 

Matt 26[2] Ye know that after two days is the feast of the Passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

[17] Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Yeshua, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?

[18] And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.

[19] And the disciples did as Yeshua had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.

 

Mark 14[1] After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.

[12] And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?

[14] And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

[16] And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

 

Luke 2 [41] Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.

 

 

Luke 22 [1] Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the passover.

[11] And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

[13] And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

[15] And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

 

John 2 [13] And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Yeshua went up to Jerusalem,

[23] Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.

 

John 6 [4] And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.

John 12 [1] Then Yeshua six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.

 

John 13 [1] Now before the feast of the passover, when Yeshua knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

 

John 18 [28] Then led they Yeshua from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.

[39] But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?

John 19 [14] And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

 

1 Cor. 5 [7] Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah / Messiah our passover is sacrificed for us:

Feasts of Tabernacles mentioned in the Gospel of John

John 7

[2] Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.

[8] Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.
[9] When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
[10] But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
[11] Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?

[14] Now about the midst of the feast Yeshua went up into the temple, and taught.

[37] In the last day, that great day of the feast, Yeshua stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
[38] He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
[39] (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Yeshua was not yet glorified.)

In closing, I hope you got a better understanding of the Feasts of Yehovah and the extra 7 sabbaths
