Part of the Congregation of Israel -

 Shabbat Shalom

Today is the 13th day of the 7th month,

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

The Gregorian calendar (Pope Gregory, 1500's) Oct. 3rd, 2009

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

Question: Should we call the 7th month Tishrei?

Answer: NO! The word Tishri is not mentioned even once in TaNaK.

Scripture says ha Ethanim - 1 Kings 8:2

1 Kgs. 8 [2] And all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month ha Ethanim, which is the seventh month.

 ---------------

Always remember:

Deut. 4 [2] Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

 

 Deut. 12 [32] What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

 

Prov. 30 [6] Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

 

Jeremiah 26: 2 Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD's house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD's house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word:

**Remember:

When I give you a date, it starts "the evening before".

Leviticus 23:32 ...from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.

Feast of Tabernacles 15th through the 22nd of the 7th month October 5 12 of which both Mondays are Sabbaths

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

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

 

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 the LORD 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 the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

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

 

We have found the book of the law, as did Hilkiah, Shaphan and King Josiah of Jerusalem

2 Kgs. 22

[8] And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.

2 Kgs. 23

[2] And the king went up into the house of the LORD, and all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem with him, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the people, both small and great: and he read in their ears all the words of the book of the covenant which was found in the house of the LORD.

[24] Moreover the workers with familiar spirits, and the wizards, and the images, and the idols, and all the abominations that were spied in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, did Josiah put away, that he might perform the words of the law which were written in the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the LORD.

The feast of the LORD, in the 7th month

The feast of Tabernacles

Lev. 23

[1] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, 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 the LORD in all your dwellings.

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

[33] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
[34] Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD.

[35] On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

[36] Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.


[39] Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.

[40] And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.

[41] And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

[42] Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths:

[43] That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

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

[37] These are the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day:
[38] Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the LORD.

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

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

Nehemiah and Ezra

Neh. 8

[1] And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel.
[2] And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month.
[3] And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law.
[4] And Ezra the scribe stood upon a pulpit of wood, which they had made for the purpose; and beside him stood Mattithiah, and Shema, and Anaiah, and Urijah, and Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedaiah, and Mishael, and Malchiah, and Hashum, and Hashbadana, Zechariah, and Meshullam.
[5] And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened it, all the people stood up:
[6] And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the LORD with their faces to the ground.
[7] Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law: and the people stood in their place.

[8] So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.
[9] And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the LORD your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law.
[10] Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
[11] So the Levites stilled all the people, saying, Hold your peace, for the day is holy; neither be ye grieved.
[12] And all the people went their way to eat, and to drink, and to send portions, and to make great mirth, because they had understood the words that were declared unto them.
[13] And on the second day were gathered together the chief of the fathers of all the people, the priests, and the Levites, unto Ezra the scribe, even to understand the words of the law.

[14] And they found written in the law which the LORD had commanded by Moses, that the children of Israel should dwell in booths in the feast of the seventh month:

[15] And that they should publish and proclaim in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, Go forth unto the mount, and fetch olive branches, and pine branches, and myrtle branches, and palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written.

[16] So the people went forth, and brought them,

and made themselves booths,

every one upon the roof of his house,

and in their courts,

and in the courts of the house of God,

and in the street of the water gate, and in the street of the gate of Ephraim.

[17] And all the congregation of them that were come again out of the captivity made booths, and sat under the booths:

for since the days of Jeshua the son of Nun unto that day had not the children of Israel done so.

And there was very great gladness.

[18] Also day by day, from the first day unto the last day, he read in the book of the law of God.

And they kept the feast seven days; and on the eighth day was a solemn assembly, according unto the manner.

 My ministry, at this time, is to "bring back", out of the book of the Lord which we have found many forgotten Words of God

 Here are a few that are forgotten

 

The forgotten law

Tanakh : Hebrew Bible (Torah - Law/Teaching, Nevi'im/Prophets and Ketivim / Writings). Approx. 77% lost

 

The forgotten calendar of God - God's Calendar - replaced by Pope Gregory's Calendar (1500's) (we use today)

 

The forgotten 7th day Sabbath, a sign - which is the 4th commandment and part of the covenant of God

 

The forgotten feasts of the Lord

 

The forgotten 7 Sabbaths in the feasts and holy days of the Lord

 

The forgotten 10 Commandments

 

The forgotten food laws

 

The forgotten land of God

 

The forgotten topic of clean and unclean

 

The forgotten topic of being Holy and separate

(in all manner of conversation and dress)

The world says be sexy, God says be holy. (Leviticus 19:2 ...Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.)

 

The forgotten topic of being perfect (in God)

The world says, no one's perfect.

God says, be perfect as My Father which is in heaven is perfect.

(Matthew 5:48)

 

The forgotten topic of sin - Don't sin willfully

The world says, everyone sins, Yeshua / Jesus says, "Go and sin no more". (John 8:11: ... go, and sin no more).

 

As they say, the list goes on and on...

There are many other forgotten words from the scriptures

 

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

Today's Topic:

Are you - zealous - jealous - for God's sake?

Is God first in your life or are your (grand) father, (grand) mother, husband, wife, (grand) children, relatives, friends, animals, stuff, and things in your like first?

 

You need to forsake all that you have that is before the Lord

 

Exod. 20 [3]

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

 

Whatever or whomever you put before God is your god.

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

 

Is the Lord First and Last in your life?

 

Rev. 22 [13] I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

 

I am the Alef and the Tav

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

 

A man's (or womans) foes, enemies are the people of their own house

 

Matt. 10 [34] Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

[35] For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

[36] And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

--

Mic. 7 [6] For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house.

--

back to Matt. 10

[37] He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

[38] And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

[39] He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.


Luke.14 [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.

[33] So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

 

Again, You need to forsake all that you have that is before the Lord

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

Are you jealous for the YHVH your God?

Elijah -

1 Kgs. 19 [10] And he said, I have been very jealous for the YHVH God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

[14] And he said, I have been very jealous for the YHVH God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

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

Does your zeal provoke many, in a good way, to make a stand for God and server the Lord?

 

2 Cor. 9 [2] For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked very many.

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

Gal. 4 [18] But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.

 

Acts 21 [20] And when they heard it, they glorified the Lord, and said unto him, Thou seest, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are which believe; and they are all zealous of the law:

 

Acts 22 [3] I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.

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

Be zealous of good works

 

Tit. 2 [11] For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
[12] Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
[13] Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Yeshua the Messiah;
[14] Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works
.

[15] These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

 ----------------------------

"Be zealous, repent and do the works of our God"

Rev. 3

[15] I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

[16] So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

[17] Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing;

and

knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

[18] I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

[19] As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten:

Be zealous therefore, and repent.

[20] Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
[21] To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
[22] He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

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

Be zealous of spiritual gifts but seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.

1 Cor. 14 [12] Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.

**Remember:

When I give you a date, it starts "the evening before".

Leviticus 23:32 ...from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.
