Shabbat Shalom

 Today we use the Gregorian calendar

(From Pope Gregory, from the 1500's) March 6th, 2010

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

  However, God has His own calendar

12th month called Adar, 19th day

Esth. 3 [7] In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar.

----------

Question:

Why are we here today?

Answer:

We were told to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy

----------

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

 

We read from law and the prophets every Sabbath.

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

 

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

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, still, think on, well.

-----

Back to Ex. 20

[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.

 

Rev.1 [10] I was in the Spirit on Yehovah's Day - (The Sabbath)

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

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.

 

The Sabbath is a "holy convocation"

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

 

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

Some news

Remember: Keep an eye on Iran

Iranian Spiritual Leader: Nukes are a Religious Obligation

March 3, 2010

(Israelnationalnews.com) Ayatollah Masbah Yazdi, the spiritual teacher of Irans dictator Mahmoud Ahmedinajad, says that the acquisition of nuclear weapons is a religious obligation. So reports the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center (ITIC), headquartered in Ramat HaSharon.

Yazdi, considered one of the leading religious thinkers in Iran, authored a book in which he wrote that attaining the ability to independently produce special combat means of a specific type is not only a military obligation for Iran, but also a religious one.

Just ten days ago, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the opposite. Speaking to army commanders at the launch of a new Iranian naval destroyer, Khamenei said, Our religious beliefs are against the use of [nuclear] weapons. We in no way believe in an atomic weapon and do not seek one."

Yazdi wrote that the countrys leaders need not fear the financial costs of producing atomic weapons, as these would be more than compensated for by the Divine and Messianic aid that would result.

ITIC acknowledges that the prevalent approach in official Iran is as Khamenei said, namely, that Islam forbids the development of nuclear weapons. However, no official ruling to this effect is known, nor is it reasonable to assume that this would prevent the regime from developing such weapons, ITIC says.

We must manufacture, here at home, the most advanced weapons, Yazdi wrote, even if it doesnt please our enemies. There is no reason that they should have the right to manufacture [such] weapons, while other countries are denied this right.

We must not break in the face of temporary difficulties, Yazdi further writes, and the Muslims must be patient and not be deterred by a material and economic lack - for if so, this is liable to lead to a separation from the religion.

What Are Your Kids Learning? Glenn Beck - watch video on his site

Glenn should have used these scriptures:

Ecc. [16] Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child!

Isa. 3 [4] And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

1.      [12] As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

1Tim. 3 [4] One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

 

March 5, 2010 - 19:38 ET

Years ago, there was an announcement before the local newscasts: "Parents, it's 10 o'clock. Do you know where you children are?" In fact, there's a station in New York that still does it.

That question or maybe a somewhat-modified version is even more relevant today: "Parents, it's 2010. Do you know what your children are learning?"

You should. There is a concerted effort to indoctrinate your children with progressive propaganda, going on right now. It's everywhere: the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, with the global warming agenda. And many of our nation's schools are hitting our kids with the full progressive assault.

Thursday, the "The National Day of Action to Defend Education" took place. It sounds innocent enough. The rally Web site says the event was to protest against the current assault on public education: tuition hikes, budget cuts, furlough days, intentional reduction in enrollment.

So if it's really just about education and protecting the kids, why did virtually every socialist and communist organization in existence support this event? Groups like Students for a Democratic Society, the Socialist Party USA, several progressive student alliances and something called Fight Imperialism Stand Together among many more. For a school function?

A faction of La Raza a Latino civil rights organization is jumping onboard and they are apparently trying to turn this into an "education is a right" message and use this platform for allowing illegal aliens to use in-state tuition as their protest message. M.E.Ch.A is also involved they're a radical group who wants to reclaim the Southwestern U.S. for Mexico.

What's going on? Well, there's a battle for the hearts and minds of your children. While you're busy trying to make a living and navigate through the daily madness piling up all around you, progressives are working on indoctrinating America's youth, your kids. Everything is about planet worship, social justice and supporting Barack Obama. Just look what's happening in our schools:

UNIDENTIFIED CHILDREN: Yes, we can, can, can!
Yes, we can, can, can!
Yes, we, can, can, can!

Progressives and Obama are getting considerable help from teachers in our public schools:

Mmm, mmm, mmm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again

Mmm, mmm, mmm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay

Mmm, mmm, mmm!
Barack Hussein Obama

It's not enough to simply indoctrinate them with the progressive agenda, they're also being told that they know more than you, their parents. We've shown you that progressives like Al Gore have pitted children against their parents. This is Gore telling thousands of teens and preteens at an inaugural youth conference in Washington last year not to listen to their parents:

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE: There are some things about our world that you know, that older people don't know.

I'm sure those parents appreciated Al telling their impressionable kids that they know more about life than they do. Maybe they appreciate Meghan McCain saying this:

MEGHAN MCCAIN: I consider myself a progressive Republican.

Maybe Meghan attended some of those child-empowerment camps. She seems to think that her wisdom at 24 exceeds the knowledge and wisdom of the feeble old coots, who like... at like... 40 or 50are so, like stupid:

MCCAIN: And I have taken heat, but in fairness to me, I am a different generation than the people that are giving me heat. I'm 24 years old. I'm not in my 40s, I'm not in my 50s and older.

And Obama's own Web site, during the campaign, featured a video called "The Talk," in which kids had "the talk" about Obama and political issues with their parents:

UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: It almost feels like a parent-child conversation, except I'm the parent and they're the child.

Encouraging kids some on that video couldn't have been any more than 14 to presume that they have more knowledge, wisdom, experience and political savvy than their parents do is absolutely despicable. I mean, think back to what you thought you knew at 14 or even 24 and what you now know. Even if you had an IQ of 500 when you were a teen, the maturity, reason and logic that comes with age and experiencing life just isn't there.

And Obama knows that. If he can convince them, before they have the chance to develop their senses, he has a chance to "change" the mindset of this nation. And that's exactly what he and his allies are trying to do.

An Obama supporter let's call him Eric has written a book let's call it "Eric's Book." Now, keep in mind, it's a book that sold about eight copies, but the point is this is part of an overall agenda. The book and video are propaganda pieces that would make Joseph Goebbels proud. The video is dedicated to twisting the youth of America into progressive zombies:

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: A new generation.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: A new generation...

UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: Is coming to power.

This is his "Generation We," born between 1978 and 2000. He is aggressively trying to mold those 95 million young people into a massive, collective, progressive voting block that would fundamentally transform, America:

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We are more globally oriented.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We're more ethnically diverse.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We're more technologically adept.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Better educated.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Less politically partisan.

UNIDENTIFIED BOY: And we're the first generation in American history...

UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: To inherit a nation...

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: In decline.

Wow. More globally oriented? Right, stop with your patriotic nonsense, we're building global citizens there's no need for U.S. sovereignty. That's for like... old people who are maybe, like... forty? Remember this guy's a clown and is having minimal impact. But it's a pattern. This message is found throughout the progressive movement that your children are "better educated," they're smarter than you. You can't begin to understand the things they do. You're not capable.

I was also moved by the "less politically partisan" line there, when absolutely every line in this abomination is partisan, leftist, progressive propaganda. But, let's find out why they're the only generation to inherit a nation in decline:

UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: Some of us are losing our homes.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Our dependence on fossil fuels...

UNIDENTIFIED BOY: Has polluted our environment.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Our water is contaminated...

UNIDENTIFIED BOY: And our health is in danger.

First of all, I hate to see anyone "lose their home," but could there be a reason for it? Maybe your uneducated, dad just isn't smart enough to hold down a job? I mean, he's probably older than twenty-five.

Then, there's the environmental hogwash. I don't know about you, but I can't get enough of this discredited hoax. "Our water is contaminated"? Really?

It's a shame that "Generation We" is too young to remember Lake Erie on fire. Now that's contamination water so polluted, it bursts into flame. And, before you start sending out your Tweets, I know, it was technically the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland that spontaneously combusted so sue me.

The point is our lakes, rivers, streams and virtually all waterways are much cleaner now than they were 20, 30 or 40 years ago. Our standards are higher, as is awareness, so companies can't just dump waste into water supplies anymore... unless you're doing business in China. We do nearly everything cleaner now than ever.

As a parent, it's really shocking the way this uses our children, some of these kids are 10 years old. But it's important to know about this attempt at brainwashing your children.

Here is something you don't hear often:

Officer says God shielded him from Pentagon gunman

The Associated Press
Friday, March 5, 2010; 11:07 AM

WASHINGTON -- One of the two police officers shot by a gunman outside the Pentagon says he is doing fine and credits God for shielding him.

Pentagon police Officer Jeffery Amos declined to answer questions about the shooting when reached by telephone by The Associated Press.

Officials said Amos and Officer Marvin Carraway were wounded when a gunman identified as John Patrick Bedell opened fire at the entrance to the Pentagon Thursday night. Bedell was mortally wounded by return fire.

Amos and Carraway were treated for superficial wounds. They have been released from the hospital.

Amos told the AP: "I just thank the Lord that he shielded me when all of this took place."

Vatican hit by gay sex scandal

Vatican chorister sacked for allegedly procuring male prostitutes for papal gentleman-in-waiting

The Vatican was today rocked by a sex scandal reaching into Pope Benedict's household after a chorister was sacked for allegedly procuring male prostitutes for a papal gentleman-in-waiting.

Angelo Balducci, a Gentleman of His Holiness, was caught by police on a wiretap allegedly negotiating with Thomas Chinedu Ehiem, a 29-year-old Vatican chorister, over the specific physical details of men he wanted brought to him. Transcripts in the possession of the Guardian suggest that numerous men may have been procured for Balducci, at least one of whom was studying for the priesthood.

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

Exod. 22

[26] If thou at all take thy neighbour's raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:

[27] For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.
--------------

Deut. 24

[6] No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge: for he taketh a man's life to pledge.

[10] When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go into his house to fetch his pledge.

[11] Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee.

[12] And if the man be poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:

[13] In any case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless thee: and it shall be righteousness unto thee before Yehovah thy God.

[17] Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge:

[18] But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and Yehovah thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command thee to do this thing.

Ezek. 18

[4] Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

[5] But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,
[6] And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman,
[7] And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment;

(Hath restored to the debtor his pledge defined: which was pawned; not embezzling it, or keeping it beyond the time fixed by the law of God)

back to Ezek. 18

[8] He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man,
[9] Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith Lord Yehovah.

[10] If he beget a son that is a robber, a shedder of blood, and that doeth the like to any one of these things,
[11] And that doeth not any of those duties, but even hath eaten upon the mountains, and defiled his neighbour's wife,
[12] Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence, hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination,
[13] Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.

[14] Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father's sins which he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like,
[15] That hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, hath not defiled his neighbour's wife,
[16] Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge, neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment,
[17] That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live.

[18] As for his father, because he cruelly oppressed, spoiled his brother by violence, and did that which is not good among his people, lo, even he shall die in his iniquity.

[19] Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father?

When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live.

[20] The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

[21] But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
[22] All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

[23] Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith Lord Yehovah: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

[24] But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.


[25] Yet ye say, The way of Yehovah is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?

[26] When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die.
[27] Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.
[28] Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.


[29] Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of Yehovah is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?
[30] Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith Yehovah GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.
[31] Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

[32] For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith Yehovah GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

We are debtors unto this world

1 Cor. 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 Christ,) 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, that I might be partaker thereof with you.
[24] Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
[25] And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
[26] I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
[27] But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway

 

Rom. 1 [13] Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.

[14] I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.

[15] So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
[16] For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
---------

Rom. 8 [12] Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

[13] For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
[14] For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
---------

Rom. 15 [25] But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints.
[26] For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem.

[27] It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things.

[28] When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain.

Rom. 5 [1] Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah: [2] By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

A parable about debt and payback - forgiveness

Matt. 18

[21] Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
[22] Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.


[23] Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
[24] And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
[25] But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
[26] The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
[27] Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.


[28] But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
[29] And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
[30] And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
[31] So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.
[32] Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:
[33] Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
[34] And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.

[35] So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
-------------


Let's apply the Torah verses above to understand what Yeshua told us in praying to the Father below:

 

Access by one Spirit unto the Father, after you get forgiveness

 

Yeshua said:

Matt. 6

[5] And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

[6] But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

[7] But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

[8] Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

[9] After this manner therefore pray ye:

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
[10] Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
[11] Give us this day our daily bread.
[12] And forgive us our
debts, as we forgive our debtors.
[13] And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

[14] For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

[15] But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

--------

Luke 11

[1] And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

[2] And he said unto them, When ye pray, say,

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.
[3] Give us day by day our daily bread.
[4] And forgive us our
sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us.

And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

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

Let's now compare these two Gospels

 

Matt. 6 - Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Praying toward Jerusalem

 1 Kgs. 8 [29] That thine eyes may be open toward this house night and day, even toward the place of which thou hast said, My name shall be there: that thou mayest hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall make toward this place.

[30] And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: and hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive.

[35] When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them:

[36] Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, that thou teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and give rain upon thy land, which thou hast given to thy people for an inheritance.

---------

2 Chr. 6 [20] That thine eyes may be open upon this house day and night, upon the place whereof thou hast said that thou wouldest put thy name there; to hearken unto the prayer which thy servant prayeth toward this place.

[21] Hearken therefore unto the supplications of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, which they shall make toward this place: hear thou from thy dwelling place, even from heaven; and when thou hearest, forgive.

[26] When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them;

[27] Then hear thou from heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, when thou hast taught them the good way, wherein they should walk; and send rain upon thy land, which thou hast given unto thy people for an inheritance.

1 Thes. 5

[12] And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
[13] And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
[14] Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.
[15] See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
[16] Rejoice evermore.
[17] Pray without ceasing.
[18] In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Messiah Yeshua concerning you.
[19] Quench not the Spirit.
[20] Despise not prophesyings.
[21] Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
[22] Abstain from all appearance of evil.
[23] And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
[24] Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
[25] Brethren, pray for us.
[26] Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.
[27] I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.


[28] The grace of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah be with you. Amen.
