  God has His own calendar

 

We are now in the 2nd Adar, 20th day

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

March 26, 2011

 

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. Sad to say

I see the Sabbath is knocking everyone out of serving Yehovah

 

Almost no one keeps the 10 Commandments

 

Anyway, I will explain the Sabbath again

 

This is how simple it is:

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

 

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

 

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

Remember

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.

 

[9] Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

 

[10] But the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yehovah thy God:

-----

Rev.1 [10] I was in the Spirit on Yehovah's Day - (The Sabbath Exod. 20:10)

-----

Back to verse 10

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.

 --------

Isa. 58 [13] If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of Yehovah, honourable; and shalt honour him,

1 - not doing thine own ways,

2 - nor finding thine own pleasure,

3 - nor speaking thine own words:

 

[14] Then shalt thou delight thyself in Yehovah; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of Yehovah hath spoken it.

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

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.

Dwelling

môshâv - seat, assembly, dwelling-place, dwelling, your situation, location, (at) time of dwelling

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

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

 ------------

Buying and selling is evil on the Sabbath

Neh. 13 [16] There dwelt men of Tyre also therein, which brought fish, and all manner of ware, and sold on the sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem.

[17] Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said unto them, What evil thing is this that ye do, and profane the Sabbath day?

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

 

Before we start, first 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 5th 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

 

 

Gods New Year Ha Aviv will be either April 5th Tuesday or April 6th a Wednesday

If New Years is on April 5th, then Passover is on Monday April 18th, then the First day of Unleavened Bread will be Tuesday, April 19th (a Sabbath),

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

OR

 

If New Years is on April 6th, then Passover is on Tuesday April 19th, the First day of Unleavened Bread will be Wednesday, April 20th (a Sabbath),

Tuesday, the 26th of April, would be the last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a Sabbath

 

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

 

Also, please be reminded the New Moon starts Sunday night; it will be the Adar 2 - Gods New Year Exod. 12:2

 

***Gods New Year is found in Exodus when all becomes new again

Exod. 12 [2] This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

, :

,

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

Exod. 13 [4] This day came ye out in the month (ha) Abib - ha Aviv.

, ,

 

Esth. 3 [7] In the first month, that is, the month Nisan

,

 

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

*** Last 2 weeks Topics were:

 

March 12th, 2011 - Counting the Cost again

 

March 19th, 2011 False People

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

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

 

Here are my questions for the 2nd time:

 

Did you take hold of the Yehovahs Covenant yet?

Have you been "joined" to the Yehovah yet?

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

 

The Yehovahs covenant is like His marriage contract binding!

 

*** Today's Topic:

HEAR the parable of the sower AGAIN!

 

Again we see people counting the cost this last week

 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.

----------

I see the need to read these scriptures again this week:

 

Many People "Making excuses" (NOT 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

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

We see and hear people say each week, how they say they Love The Lord and He is first in their lives.

And then,

Satan comes immediately and takes the Word right out of their hearts

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

Matt. 16 [26] For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

-----------

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.
[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.

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

John 12 [25] He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal

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

 

HEAR the parable of the sower!

 

Which one of the four scenarios presented below do you fall into?

The way side

Stony places

Among thorns

Good ground

 

Matt. 13

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

[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

[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.
----------

Are you born again?

Are you converted?

This may seem very simple; however it is one of the most important questions.

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.

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

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 do in your new life

Here is a short list:

Do you keep the God of Israels Commandments, Sabbath, Feasts and Holy Days?

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 or drink?

Do you make excuses to take drugs and get drunk?

 

Here is a breakdown of the 10 Commandments:

The first 4 commandments tell you how to treat the God of Israel 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, a new man, a new 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:

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

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.

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

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

Some good correction and reproof

What will keep you from inheriting the kingdom of God?

 

1 Cor. 6 [9] Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived:

neither fornicators,

nor idolaters,

nor adulterers,

nor effeminate,

nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

[10] Nor thieves,

nor covetous,

nor drunkards,

nor revilers,

nor extortioners,

shall inherit the kingdom of God.

-----------

 

Gal.5 [19] Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;

Adultery,

fornication,

uncleanness,

lasciviousness,

[20] Idolatry,

witchcraft,

hatred,

variance,

emulations,

wrath,

strife,

seditions,

heresies,

[21] Envyings,

murders,

drunkenness,

revellings,

and such like:

of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that

They which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

----------

Satan has the same tricks he plays on all people and he wants to separate the sheep.

 

I have heard this for many years, they say, I need to study by myself, I need to be alone this is very bad

 

Scripture says:

 

Prov.11 [14] where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety.

 

Prov.15 [22] without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellers they are established.

Lets read John 10

John.10

[1] Verily, verily, I say unto you,

 

He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

 

[2] But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
[3] To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
[4] And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
[5] And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.


[6] This parable spake Yeshua unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.


[7] Then said Yeshua unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
[8] All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.


[9] I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
[10] The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
[11] I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.


[12] But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.


[13] The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.


[14] I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.


[15] As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.


[16] And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.


[17] Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.


[18] No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.


[24] Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Messiah, tell us plainly.


[25] Yeshua answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.


[26] But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
[27] My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:


[28] And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.


[29] My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.


[30] I and my Father are one.


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

In closing:

 

Ask yourself,

 

Which one of the four scenarios presented below do you fall into?

The way side

Stony places

Among thorns

Good ground

--------

Are you born again?

Are you 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.

 

Dont separate yourself from the flock, the real people of God

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

 

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

Shabbat Shalom
