Lets Pray

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

My ministry is to bring up topics in the Bible that have never been discussed, mentioned or deleted in your life that God wants you to know.

------------- 

Today w use the Gregorian calendar (Pope Gregory, 1500's) August 7, 2010

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

 We restore the calendar of God

 

We are now in 5th month of God, 25th day, which has no name

 

Change your Judaism calendars; Judaism is wrong again by calling the 5th month Av, which is totally made up.

 

No name Av in scripture for the 5th month.

 

***Reminder

Next Wednesday evening is the New Moon Rosh Chodesh, the 6th month of God, we will be online to read scripture

I explain the Sabbath, the 7th day, each week

This is how simple it is:

Exod. 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 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.

 ------------

Deut. 5

[12] Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as Yehovah thy God hath commanded thee.
[13] Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:
[14] 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, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.

[15] And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that Yehovah thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore Yehovah thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.
------------

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.

--------

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.

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

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?

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

We read from law and the prophets every Sabbath like they did in the Book of Acts

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

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

Let's see what Yeshua, Paul and the Apostles did on the Sabbath:

Acts 13 [13] Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.  [14] But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and sat down.  [15] And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.

----

Acts 15 [21] For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath day.
----

Luke 4 [16] And he, Yeshua came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom (prescribed by God's law) was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.  [17] And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias.

----

Acts 13: [27] For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.

----

Acts 13 [42] And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.

 [44] And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.

----

First day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread

Luke. 23 [56] And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.

----

"Sabbath in the future"

Yeshua said:

Matt. 24 [20] But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day

-------

 Isa. 66 - A Sabbath, even after the new heavens and the new earth are created

[22] For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith 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 (new body) flesh come to worship before me, saith 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.

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

Pauls tells us: in Colossians 2:16,

http://oneinmessiah.net/col216b.asf


Col. 2:16: Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

17: Which are a shadow of "things to come"; (future tense) but the body is of Messiah.

 

Lets go over a few words:

--

judge - κρινω krino: to try to condemn, to separate, put asunder, to pick out, to be of opinion, judge, to pronounce an opinion concerning right and wrong, to contend, to dispute

--------

Holyday - εορτη heorte -heh-or-tay' - a festival: - feast, holyday

--------

new moon - νουμηνία - noumēnia - noo-may-nee'-ah - the festival of new moon: - new moon.

--------

sabbath days - σάββατον - sabbaton sab'-bat-on Of Hebrew origin - the Sabbath (that is, Shabbath), 7th day of week repose from secular avocations (also the observance or institution itself); Also there are sabbaths in the feasts of Yehovah.

--------

Shadow - σκια skia : shadow, an image cast by an object and representing the form of that object, a sketch, outline

Mockers of the God of Israel

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

Yeshua the Messiah said:

John 15 [20] Remember the word that I said unto you,

The servant is not greater than his lord.

If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you;

if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

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

 

The words below are from the Book of Lamentations chapters 1 to 5 - They can be applied exactly to our days in 2010

 

Lam. 1  [3] ... captivity

and because of great servitude: she dwelleth among the heathen, she findeth no rest:

[4] The ways of Zion do mourn, because none come to the solemn feasts:

[5] Her adversaries are the chief, her enemies prosper; for Yehovah hath afflicted her for the multitude of her transgressions:

her children are gone into captivity before the enemy.

[7] Jerusalem remembered in the days of her affliction and of her miseries all her pleasant things that she had in the days of old, when her people fell into the hand of the enemy, and none did help her:

the adversaries saw her, and did mock at her sabbaths.

H4868 mishbâth - mish-bawth' - From H7673; cessation - Sabbath

[10] The adversary hath spread out his hand upon all her pleasant things: for she hath seen that the heathen entered into her sanctuary, whom thou didst command that they should not enter into thy congregation.

[18] Yehovah is righteous;

for I have rebelled against his commandment:

hear, I pray you, all people, and behold my sorrow: my virgins

and my young men are gone into captivity.

Lam. 2

[6] And he hath violently taken away his tabernacle

[7] Yehovah hath cast off his altar, he hath abhorred his sanctuary, he hath given up into the hand of the enemy the walls of her palaces; they have made a noise in the house of Yehovah, as in the day of a solemn feast.

[9] Her gates are sunk into the ground; he hath destroyed and broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles:

the law (torah) is no more;

her prophets also find no vision from Yehovah.

[14] Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.
 

Lam. 4

[12] The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy should have entered into the gates of Jerusalem.

[13] For the sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests, that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her,

[14] They have wandered as blind men in the streets, they have polluted themselves with blood, so that men could not touch their garments.

[15] They cried unto them, Depart ye; it is unclean ; depart, depart, touch not: when they fled away and wandered, they said among the heathen, They shall no more sojourn there.

Lam. 5

[7] Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.

[16] ... woe unto us, that we have sinned!

[19] Thou, YEHOVAH, remainest for ever; thy throne from generation to generation.
[20] Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?
[21] Turn thou us unto thee, YEHOVAH, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old
.

[22] But thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.

Jer. 15 [17] I sat not in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of thy hand: for thou hast filled me with indignation.

 

Jer. 20 [7] YEHOVAH, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived: thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me.

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

Consider, these words sound like today

  

We are in captivity

We dwell among the heathen (nations)

None come to the solemn feasts

The Sabbaths are mocked

The heathen entered into her sanctuary, whom thou didst command that they should not enter into thy congregation.

All have transgressed and rebelled against His commandment

He hath violently taken away his tabernacle (His Presence is gone)

The law (Torah) is no more

Prophets find no vision from Yehovah

The prophets have seen vain and foolish things

For the sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests, that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her

They (we) have polluted themselves with blood

Depart ye; it is unclean; depart, depart, touch not

Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities

Woe unto us that we have sinned!

Thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.

 ---------------------

 No written law for a long time

(There is approximately 338 years from King Asa to King Josiah)

2 Chr.12 [1] And it came to pass, when Rehoboam had established the kingdom, and had strengthened himself, he forsook the law of Yehovah, and all Israel with him.

2 Chr.15 [1] And the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded:
[2] And he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin;

Yehovah is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.

[3] Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.

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

Mockers of God

Matt. 27

 

[11] And Yeshua stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Yeshua said unto him, Thou sayest.
[12] And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
[13] Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?
[14] And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.
[15] Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
[16] And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
[17] Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Yeshua which is called Messiah?
[18] For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
[19] When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.
[20] But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Yeshua.
[21] The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
[22] Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Yeshua which is called Messiah? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
[23] And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
[24] When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
[25] Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
[26] Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Yeshua, he delivered him to be crucified.
[27] Then the soldiers of the governor took Yeshua into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
[28] And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
[29] And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
[30] And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
[31] And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.

[32] And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
[33] And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
[34] They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
[35] And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
[36] And sitting down they watched him there;
[37] And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS Yeshua THE KING OF THE JEWS.
[38] Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
[39] And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
[40] And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
[41] Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
[42] He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
[43] He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
[44] The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.

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

Luke 18 [31] Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.
[32] For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:[33] And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again.

Luke 23 [11] And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.

[36] And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,[37] And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.

Acts 2 During Feast of Weeks - Pentecost -[13] Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

 

Jude 1 [18] How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

[19] These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
[20] But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
[21] Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah unto eternal life.


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

2 Chr. 36

[9] Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of Yehovah.
[10] And when the year was expired, king Nebuchadnezzar sent, and brought him to Babylon, with the goodly vessels of the house of Yehovah, and made Zedekiah his brother king over Judah and Jerusalem.
[11] Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem.
[12] And he did that which was evil in the sight of Yehovah his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of Yehovah.
[13] And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto Yehovah God of Israel.
[14] Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of Yehovah which he had hallowed in Jerusalem.
[15] And Yehovah God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place:

[16] But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of Yehovah arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

[17] Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees, who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old man, or him that stooped for age: he gave them all into his hand.
[18] And all the vessels of the house of God, great and small, and the treasures of the house of Yehovah, and the treasures of the king, and of his princes; all these he brought to Babylon.
[19] And they burnt the house of God, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof.
[20] And them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia:
[21] To fulfil the word of Yehovah by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfil threescore and ten years.
[22] Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of Yehovah spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, Yehovah stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,
[23] Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath Yehovah God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? Yehovah his God be with him, and let him go up.
----------------------------------

 

Neh. 4 [1] But it came to pass, that when Sanballat heard that we builded the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews.

[2] And he spake before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, What do these feeble Jews? will they fortify themselves? will they sacrifice? will they make an end in a day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned?
[3] Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Even that which they build, if a fox go up, he shall even break down their stone wall.
[4] Hear, O our God; for we are despised: and turn their reproach upon their own head, and give them for a prey in the land of captivity:
[5] And cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before thee: for they have provoked thee to anger before the builders.

[6] So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.
[7] But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth,
[8] And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it.
[9] Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.
[10] And Judah said, The strength of the bearers of burdens is decayed, and there is much rubbish; so that we are not able to build the wall.
[11] And our adversaries said, They shall not know, neither see, till we come in the midst among them, and slay them, and cause the work to cease.
[12] And it came to pass, that when the Jews which dwelt by them came, they said unto us ten times, From all places whence ye shall return unto us they will be upon you.
[13] Therefore set I in the lower places behind the wall, and on the higher places, I even set the people after their families with their swords, their spears, and their bows.
[14] And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember Yehovah, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses.
[15] And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that it was known unto us, and God had brought their counsel to nought, that we returned all of us to the wall, every one unto his work.
[16] And it came to pass from that time forth, that the half of my servants wrought in the work, and the other half of them held both the spears, the shields, and the bows, and the habergeons; and the rulers were behind all the house of Judah.
[17] They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon.
[18] For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded. And he that sounded the trumpet was by me.
[19] And I said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, The work is great and large, and we are separated upon the wall, one far from another.
[20] In what place therefore ye hear the sound of the trumpet, resort ye thither unto us: our God shall fight for us.
[21] So we laboured in the work: and half of them held the spears from the rising of the morning till the stars appeared.
[22] Likewise at the same time said I unto the people, Let every one with his servant lodge within Jerusalem, that in the night they may be a guard to us, and labour on the day.
[23] So neither I, nor my brethren, nor my servants, nor the men of the guard which followed me, none of us put off our clothes, saving that every one put them off for washing.

Job 12 [4] I am as one mocked of his neighbour, who calleth upon God, and he answereth him: the just upright man is laughed to scorn.

 

Job 17 [2] Are there not mockers with me? and doth not mine eye continue in their provocation?

 

Job 21 [3] Suffer me that I may speak; and after that I have spoken, mock on.

 

Prov. 14 [9] Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.

 

Prov.17 [5] Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.

Heb. 11

Here are some short histories of your brothers and sisters lives from the past

--

[4] By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

[5] By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
[6] But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

[7] By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

[8] By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
[9] By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
[10] For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
[11] Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

[12] Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
[13] These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
[14] For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
[15] And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
[16] But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

[17] By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
[18] Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called

[19] Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure

[20] By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.

[21] By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.
[22] By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.
[23] By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.

[24] By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
[25] Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
[26] Esteeming the reproach of Messiah greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
[27] By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
[28] Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
[29] By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

[30] By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.
[31] By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

[32] And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:

[33] Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
[34] Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
[35] Women
received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
[36] And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
[37] They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
[38] (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

God is not mocked

 

Gal. 6 [7] Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

[8] For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
[9] And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

 

Prov. 1

[24] Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
[25] But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

[26] I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
[27] When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
[28] Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
[29] For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of Yehovah:
[30] They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
[31] Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
[32] For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

[33] But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

In every generation, I believe, there are always a few chosen people of God that try to restore God's laws, commandments and feasts before He comes back.

Gal. 6 [9] And let us not be weary in well doing:

for in due season we shall reap,

if we faint not.

Shabbat Shalom
