Lets pray

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

 

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

Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, sins, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

Amen

  God has His own calendar

 

We are now in the 2nd Adar, 27th day

Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory, from the 1500s

April 2, 2011

 

April - the fourth month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar, and one of four months with a length of 30 days.

April was originally the second month of the Roman calendar, before January and February were added by King Numa Pompilius about 700 BC.

It became the fourth month of the calendar year (the year when twelve months are displayed in order) during the time of the decemvirs (Latin = 10 men) about 450 BC, when it also was given 29 days.

The derivation of the name (Latin Aprilis) is uncertain. The traditional etymology is from the Latin aperire, "to open," in allusion to its being the season when trees and flowers begin to "open," which is supported by comparison with the modern Greek use of νοιξις (opening) for spring.

Since some of the Roman months were named in honor of divinities, and as April was sacred to Venus, the Festum Veneris et Fortunae Virilis being held on the first day, it has been suggested that Aprilis was originally her month Aphrilis, from her Greek name Aphrodite (Aphros), or from the Etruscan name Apru.

Jacob Grimm suggests the name of a hypothetical god or hero, Aper or Aprus.

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

 

Before we start, first a short review of the dates of Spring Feasts and Holy Days again:

 

It seems I can never review these days early enough for you, this is the 6th time.

Here are some approximate 2011 dates for these days, this is the best can do at this time.

 

 **Remember, all 2011 dates I give you start in the *evening before*

 

Looks like these might be the dates, if dates change we will inform you:

 

 Gods New Year ha Aviv will be April 5th Tuesday

Passover will be on Monday April 18th, then the First day of Unleavened Bread will be Tuesday, April 19th (a Sabbath),

Monday, the 25th of April, will be the last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a Sabbath

 

The Feast of Weeks (Sabbath) will be Sunday June 12th

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

*** Last 3 weeks Topics were:

March 12th, 2011 - Counting the Cost again

March 19th, 2011 False People among us

March 26, 2011, HEAR the parable of the sower AGAIN!

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

Passover is coming again and I always ask these questions lest we have false brothers and sisters among us and the Passover is polluted with sin.

 

Amazingly, we lost people since I gave these 3 last teachings

 

Here are some of my questions for the 3rd time:

 

Have you been "joined" to the Yehovah yet?

 

Did you take hold of the Yehovahs Covenant yet?

 

Are you sojourning among the people of the God of Israel truly?

 

Yehovahs covenant is like His marriage contract binding!

 

Todays Topic:

 

Do you really know what born again means?

Do you really know what being converted is?

 

This may seem like a simple study however it is the most important study.

Without being born again, converted, you will not see the kingdom of God.

If people don't see you as a "new, converted" creature, you probably are not a new creature but the old man or woman that you always were.

Some people, just in the last 2 weeks were getting drunk, smoking pot and lying. (and who knows what else)

They are not born again!

 

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

Let's review a few words first:

Converted

G4762 στρέφω - strephō - stref'-o

Strengthened from the base of G5157; to twist, that is, turn quite around or reverse (literally or figuratively): - convert, turn (again, back again (to a child), self, self about). To turn, turn around, to turn ones self , metaphorically to turn ones self from ones course of conduct, i.e. to change ones mind

G5157 - τροπή- tropē - trop-ay' - From an apparently primary word τρέπω trepō (to turn); a turn (trope), that is, revolution - turning.

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

David says:

Pss. 51 [10] Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

[13] Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

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

Yeshua says:

Matt. 18 [3] And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

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

You should be able to make a conscience list of the things you are doing in your new life.

Here is a short list:

How do you honor God?

How do you speak to others?

How do you treat people?

How do you treat your brothers and sisters?

How do you dress?

Where do you like to go?

What do you like to do?

What type of people do you like to be around?

What do you eat, drink or smoke?

 

Yeshua broke down the 10 Commandments like this:

 

The first 4 commandments tell you how to treat God and the other 6 tell you how to treat your neighbor.

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

Yeshua tells a Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler to be born again, born from above

John 3

[1] There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
[2] The same came to Yeshua by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

[3] Yeshua answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

[4] Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

[5] Yeshua answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

[6] That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

[7] Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

[8] The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
[9] Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
[10] Yeshua answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
[11] Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
[12] If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
------------------------

Peter says:

1 Pet. 1 [22] Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

[23] Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
------------------------

Are you a new creature, new man / woman?

2 Cor. 5 [17] Therefore if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

----

Eph. 4 [24] And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

 ----

Col. 3 [10] And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

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

Here are a few new, converted people

Ruth, Rahab, Hittite and Peter

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

Ruth

Ruth 1 [16] And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:

[17] Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: Yehovah do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

[18] When she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her.

 Ruth 4 [13] So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, Yehovah gave her conception, and she bare a son.
[14] And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be Yehovah, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.
[15] And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him.
[16] And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it.
[17] And the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying, There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David.
[18] Now these are the generations of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron,
[19] And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminadab,
[20] And Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon,
[21] And Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed,
[22] And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David.

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

Davids army - Mighty men, honorable - Uriah the Hittite

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

Rahab

Josh. 2 [1] And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men to spy secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went, and came into an harlot's house, named Rahab, and lodged there.

[3] And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, Bring forth the men that are come to thee, which are entered into thine house: for they be come to search out all the country.

 

Josh.6[17] And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the Yehovah: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.

[23] And the young men that were spies went in, and brought Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that she had; and they brought out all her kindred, and left them without the camp of Israel.

[25] And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.

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

Yeshua tells Simon Peter:

Luke. 22 [31] And Yehovah said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

[32] But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

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

Simon Peter is now converted

He says:

Acts 3 [19] Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of Yehovah;

[20] And He (the Father) shall send Yeshua the Messiah, which before was preached unto you:

[21] Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
------------

Paul writes to the Colossians

Col. 3

[1] If ye then be risen with Messiah, seek those things which are above, where Messiah sitteth on the right hand of God.
[2] Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
[3] For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Messiah in God.
[4] When Messiah, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.


[5] Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

[6] For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
[7] In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

[8] But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

[9] Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
[10] And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

[11] Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Messiah is all, and in all.


[12] Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
[13] Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Messiah forgave you, so also do ye.

[14] And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
[15] And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.


[16] Let the word of Messiah dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to Yehovah.

[17] And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Yeshua, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

 

[18] Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.


[19] Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.


[20] Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto Lord.


[21] Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
[22] Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:


[23] And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;


[24] Knowing that of Yehovah ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord, Messiah.


[25] But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

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

All things are New

New flesh, body

Job 19 [25] For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:[26] And though after my skin worms destroy this body (earthly body) , yet in my flesh (new body) shall I see God:

-----------

1 Cor. 15 35] But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
[36] Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
[37] And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
[38] But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
[39] All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
[40] There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
[41] There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
[42] So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
[43] It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
[44] It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

[45] And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
[46] Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
[47] The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
[48] As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
[49] And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

[50] Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

[51] Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
[52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

[53] For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
[54] So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

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

Yeshua's new body

Luke 24 [39] Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

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

New heavens and a new earth

Isa. 65 [17] For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

New - - adjective masculine plural absolute

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

Isa. 66 [22] For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Yehovah, so shall your seed and your name remain.

[23] And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another , shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Yehovah.

[24] And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

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

Yeshua quotes Isa. 66:24

Mark 9 [43] And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

[44] Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

[45] And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

[46 ] Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

[47] And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

[48] Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

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

Peter quotes Isa. 66:22

2 Pet. 3 [13] Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

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

New Jerusalem

Rev. 3 [12] Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

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

Rev. 21 [1] And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. [ 2] And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven , prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

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

Just for the record, Renew is not New

The word renew is a verb and the word new is an adjective.

In Hebrew, the vowels agree with the noun: Example: new covenant -

covenant is a feminine noun and needs a feminine adjective, new

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

 

"He wants to dwell among us and in us"

Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried

 

Ezra. 6 [20] For the priests and the Levites were purified together, all of them were pure, and killed the passover for all the children of the captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves.

 

Neh. 12 [30] And the priests and the Levites purified themselves, and purified the people, and the gates, and the wall.

 

Dan. 12 [10] Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

 

1 Pet. 1 [22] Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: [23] Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.[24] For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth way:[25] But the word of Yehovah endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

 

Rev. 7 [14] And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

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

"He will dwell among us, in us"

- Glory of Yehovah

 

"Tabernacle, temple and sanctuary"

 

On the New Year, the tabernacle of the tent was set up

 

Let us start this New Year setting up a place in our hearts and lives for Yehovah

 

Exod. 40 [1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

[2] On the first day of the first month - , shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

[3] And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail.
[4] And thou
shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it; and thou shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.
[5] And thou
shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.
[6] And thou
shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
[7] And thou
shalt set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and shalt put water therein.
[8] And thou
shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.
[9] And thou
shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.
[10] And thou
shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.
[11] And thou
shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.
[12] And thou
shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.
[13] And thou
shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.
[14] And thou
shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:
[15] And thou
shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.
[16] Thus did Moses: according to all that
Yehovah commanded him, so did he.

[17] And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.

[18] And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared up his pillars.
[19] And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as
Yehovah commanded Moses.
[20] And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:
[21] And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the
vail of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as Yehovah commanded Moses.
[22] And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the
vail.
[23] And he set the bread in order upon it before
Yehovah; as Yehovah had commanded Moses.
[24] And he put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.
[25] And he lighted the lamps before
Yehovah; as Yehovah commanded Moses.
[26] And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the
vail:
[27] And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as
Yehovah commanded Moses.
[28] And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.
[29] And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the meat offering; as
Yehovah commanded Moses.
[30] And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash withal.
[31] And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat
:
[32] When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as
Yehovah commanded Moses.
[33] And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.

[34] Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of Yehovah filled the tabernacle.

[35] And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of Yehovah

filled the tabernacle.

[36] And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:
[37] But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
[38] For the cloud of
Yehovah was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
--------------------------------------

Num. 35 [34] Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I Yehovah dwell among the children of Israel.

 

 1 Kgs. 6 [13] And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake my people Israel.

 

Pss. 68 [17] The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: Yehovah is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.

[18] Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that Yehovah God might dwell among them.

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

Rev. 7 [13] And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

[14] And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

[15] Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

 [16] They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

[17] For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

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

Rev. 21 [3] And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

Zech. 13 [9] And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Yehovah is my God.

Mal. 3 [2] But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: [3] And he shall sit as a refiner and purifer of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Yehovah an offering in righteousness.

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

He (God) shall be for a sanctuary for us

 

Exod. 25 [8] And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.

 Pss

. 68

[24] They have seen thy goings, O God; even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.

 Pss. 77 [13] Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?

 Pss. 78 [54] And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.

 [69] And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath established for ever.

 Pss. 96 [6] Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

 Pss. 102 [19] For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did Yehovah behold the earth;

 Isa. 8 [14] And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Some People pollute Gods sanctuary

 Ezek. 44

[7] ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers, uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations.

[8] And ye have not kept the charge of mine holy things: but ye have set keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for yourselves.

[9] Thus saith Yehovah Yehovah; No stranger, uncircumcised in heart, nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of any stranger that is among the children of Israel.

 ---------------

Exod. 29 [45] And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God. [46] And they shall know that I am Yehovah their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt that I may dwell among them: I am Yehovah their God.

The body is known as the tabernacle

2 Pet. 1 [13] Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; [14] Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Yeshua the Messiah hath shewed me.

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

We are the temple of God

 

I will dwell in them, and walk in them

Some people pollute Gods temple with drugs, alcohol and other things

 

 1 Cor. 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.

2 Cor. 6 [14] Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
[15] And what concord hath Messiah with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

[16] And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?

for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

[17] Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith Yehovah, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
[18] And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith Yehovah Almighty.
Rev. 21 [22] And I saw no temple therein: for Yehovah God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

In closing:

Passover / Feast of Unleavened Bread, Feast of Weeks are coming again,

-------

Are you really born again?

 

Are you really converted?

 

Without being born again, converted, you will not see the kingdom of God.

 

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.
