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

 

March 31, 2012

Sad to say The name of March comes from ancient Rome, when March was the first month of the year and named Martius after Mars, the Roman god of war.

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

Before we start, first I will do a short review of the Spring Feasts and Holy Days again. It seems I can never review these days early enough for you, this is the 7th time.

 

Here are some approximate 2012 dates for these holy days, this is the best can do at this time.

 --------------

 **Remember, all 2012 dates I give you start in the evening before

Passover is coming again and I always amazed how Yehovah reveals false brothers and sisters among us so our Passover is not polluted with sin.

Amazingly, we lost a few people since I gave these last few teachings already.

We lost and will lose many people in this war

Rev. 12 [17] And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make WAR with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Yeshua the Messiah.

Todays Topic

Counting the Cost again

 

Do you want to serve God all the way?

 

Joel 3 [14] Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Yehovah is near in the valley of decision.

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

Many People "Making excuses" (to serve God all the way)

 

Luke 14 [16] Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:

[17] And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.

 

[18] And they all with one consent began to make excuse.

 

The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.

 

[19] And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.

[20] And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.


[21] So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.


[22] And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.


[23] And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

[24] For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.


[25] And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,

[26] If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

[27] And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

----------------
[28] For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

[29] Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,

[30] Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.

[31] Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?


[32] Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.


[33] So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not

"All that he hath", he cannot be my disciple.


[34] Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?

[35] It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out.

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

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

Some people are great out of the gate, and then lose their way

Matt. 24 [13] But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

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

 

The 3 Gospel accounts are all a little different

 

"A sower went forth to sow"

Matt. 13

[1] The same day went Yeshua out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
[2] And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

[3] And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

[4] And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:

[5] Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
[6] And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.

[7] And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

[8] But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

[9] Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

------

Some seeds fell by the way side

Some fell upon stony places

Some fell among thorns

Other fell into good ground

-----------

[18] Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

[19] When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

[20] But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
[21] Yet hath he not root in himself, but
dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

[22] He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

[23] But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

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

Luke 8

[4] And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable:

[5] A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.

[6] And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.

[7] And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.

[8] And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

-------

Some fell by the way side

Some fell upon a rock

Some fell among thorns

Other fell on good ground

--------

[11] Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

[12] Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.

[13] They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.

[14] And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.

[15] But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

 ----------

Mark 4

[1] And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.
[2] And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,

[3] Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

[4] And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

[5] And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:
[6] But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.

[7] And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.


[8] And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.
[9] And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

----------

The way side

Stony ground

Among thorns

Good ground

----------

[14] The sower soweth the word.

[15] And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

[16] And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
[17] And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution
ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.

[18] And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
[19] And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it
becometh unfruitful.

[20] And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.
----------

Which one are you?

Lets read about the covenant that you joined

The words of the covenant were given to God's people Israel, no heathen

Deut.29

[1] These are the words of the covenant, which Yehovah commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.


[2] And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that Yehovah did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;
[3] The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles:
[4] Yet Yehovah hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.
[5] And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot.
[6] Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am Yehovah your God.
[7] And when ye came unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto battle, and we smote them:
[8] And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance unto the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh.

[9] Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.

[10] Ye stand this day all of you before Yehovah your God; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, with all the men of Israel,[11] Your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that is in thy camp, from the hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water:

[12] That thou shouldest enter into covenant with Yehovah thy God, and into his oath, which Yehovah thy God maketh with thee this day:
[13] That he may establish thee to day for a people unto himself, and that he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said unto thee, and as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

[14] Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;
[15] But with him that standeth here with us this day before Yehovah our God, and also with him that is not here with us this day: (us)

[16] (For ye know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how we came through the nations which ye passed by;
[17] And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:)
[18] Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from Yehovah our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood;
[19] And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst:
[20] Yehovah will not spare him, but then the anger of Yehovah and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and Yehovah shall blot out his name from under heaven.
[21] And Yehovah shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:
[22] So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which Yehovah hath laid upon it;
[23] And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which Yehovah overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:
[24] Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath Yehovah done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?

[25] Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of Yehovah God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt:
[26] For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them:
[27] And the anger of Yehovah was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:
[28] And Yehovah rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.
[29] The secret things belong unto Yehovah our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

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

The New Covenant was also given to all Israel, Jacobs children

The words of the new covenant were also given to God's people Israel, no heathen

Jer.31 [31] Behold, the days come, saith Yehovah, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

[33] But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel

Here is the New Covenant

After those days, saith Yehovah, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Saul quotes Jer.31

Heb.8 [8] For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith Yehovah, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: [10] For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, ;

Here is the New Covenant

I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

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

Dont return back

Dont let your heart look behind you

 

"Remember Lot's wife"

Luke 17

[30] Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

[31] In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

[32] Remember Lot's wife.

[33] Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

----------

Let us "Remember Lot's wife" now

Read the whole chapter yourselves - Gen. 19

Sodom, Lot, his wife, and two daughters

Destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim

[13] For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Yehovah; and the Yehovah hath se nt us to destroy it.

 

[17] And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

[24] Then the Yehovah rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Yehovah out of heaven;
[25] And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
[26] But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.


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

Peter says:

2 Pet. 2

[20] For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the 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.
----------------

Prov. 26

[11] As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.

----------

Sad, some say 'It is vain to serve God"

Mal. 3[14] Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Yehovah of hosts?

----------

Consider this:

Ecc. 7 [8] Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.

[9] Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.

[10] Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this.

----------

The backslider

Prov. 14[14] The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways
----------

Heb. 10

[35] Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

[36] For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

[37] For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

[38] Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

----------

Hab. 2 [4] Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.)

[39] But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
