----------

Gods calendar

We are now in the 9th month, 10th day of God called Kislev in Hebrew

Zech. 7 [1] And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month, even in Chisleu,

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

Question:

Why are we here today?

---------

Answer:

We were told to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy

---------

The 4th Commandment, the Sabbath, is a part of the covenant given to us at mount Sinai

 

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 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.

Topic: "Tis the season to be pagan", Beware!

---------

Beware of the:

False image of Love

False feelings and emotions

These pagan feasts bring on loneliness, depression, suicide and oh yes, debt.

---------

Jer.4 [22] For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.

--------

Isa. 59 [14] And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.

--------

Jer. 7 [28] But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of the LORD their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.

---------

Amos 8 [11] Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.

[12] And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
[13] In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
[14] They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beer-sheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again.

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

Isa. 5 [20] Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

[21] Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
[22] Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: [23] Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

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

Many people are selling dead trees for pagan Christmas already in Nov. to the gentiles

I know this is about idols, but...

Jer. 10 [1] Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
[2] Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
[3] For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
[4] They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
[5] They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

I digress

A short recap of false love, feelings and emotions - Beware!

 

Halloween - Also called All Hallows Eve, All Saints' Eve, Samhain, Hallowed End

Halloween started 2,000 years ago in Celtic Ireland, which is now Great Britain , France , and Ireland . The Celtic New Year was celebrated on November 1 st . New Years Eve, or All Hallows Eve, was called Samhain.

All Hallows Eve is the name from which Halloween originated. Samhain was the most important holiday of the year. On this day summer officially ended, and it was believed that spirits of people who had died that year came back to the world of the living looking for a body to possess for the following year.

On Samhain all of the people who lived in Celtic Ireland would put out their hearth fires in order to frighten the spirits. The town would also have a noisy parade and ghoulish costumes would be worn to scare away the spirits from possessing someone's body

Thanksgiving

George Washington proclaimed a National Day of Thanksgiving in 1789

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

Kwanzaa - Ron Karenga (aka Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga) invented the seven-day feast, Dec. 26-Jan. 1, in 1966, branding it a black alternative to Christmas.

The idea was to celebrate the end of what he considered the Christmas-season exploitation of African Americans.

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

Christmas - Once Upon A Time, Christmas Was Banned in 1659 in America

The following is a quote from the Encyclopedia Britannica, Volume 11; page 390.

"During the later periods of Roman history, sun worship gained in importance and ultimately led to what has been called a 'solar monotheism.'

Nearly all the gods of the period were possessed of Solar qualities, and both Christ and Mithra acquired the traits of solar deities.

The feast of Sol and Victus (open unconquered Sun) on December 25th was celebrated with great joy, and eventually this date was taken over by the Christians as Christmas, the birthday of Christ.

The Christians were trying to get more converts so they adapted a pagan holiday to their worship to appease the pagans in 336 AD.

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

The Encyclopedia Britannica reports that "The traditional customs connected with Christmas have developed from several sources as a result of the coincidence of the celebration of the birth of Christ with the pagan agricultural and solar observations at midwinter.

In the Roman world the Saturnalia (December 17) was a time of merrymaking and exchange of gifts.

December 25 was also regarded as the birth date of the Iranian mystery god Mithra, the Sun of Righteousness."

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

Colliers Encyclopedia agrees. Quote: "After the triumph of Constantine, the church at Rome assigned December 25 as the date for the celebration of the feast, possibly about A.D. 320 or 353.

By the end of the fourth century the whole Christian world was celebrating Christmas on that day, with the exception of the Eastern churches, where it was celebrated on January 6.

The choice of December 25 was probably influenced by the fact that on this day the Romans celebrated the Mithraic feast of the Sun-god (natalis solis invicti), and that the Saturnalia also came at this time."

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

Both encyclopedias plainly reveal that the source of the celebration of December 25 is the birthday of Mithra, the pagan sun god.

Sun worshippers since the time of Babel recognized this time of year in honor of their pagan gods.

1st century believers, taught personally by Christ, did not celebrate His birthday.

2nd century theologians condemned the thought.

Only after severe persecution, destruction and inaccessibility of biblical scripture and the blending of pagan doctrine with the worship of God was the Mithraic celebration of December 25th proclaimed to be "Christian" in nature.

These facts are well documented. They can be found in any encyclopedia.

There is no way to "Christianize" the birthday of the sun god.

Anyone with access to a computer or encyclopedia can know better than those with so-called theological degrees.

Black Friday Brings Local Shopping Madness

One Woman Injured While Shopping In Clarksville

Thursday night, shoppers went to Lebanon's Prime Outlet in their pajamas.

The first 500 people who arrived received a free gift bag. One store offered 6 percent off some items.

In Clarksville, one woman fractured her knee while shopping at Toys R Us. Police spokesman Jim Knoll said that Amy Serna was trampled. She was taken to the hospital.

Serna told the Leaf Chronicle shoppers got unruly after the store delayed the midnight opening because it wanted police to get there before it let people inside.

Oh well... all I can say is:

2 Thes. 3 [13] But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

 

Prov. 23 [17] Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long. [18] For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.

 

2 Cor. 4 [1] Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

[2] But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
[3] But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
[4] In whom the god of this world (Satan) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Messiah, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
[5] For we preach not ourselves, but Messiah Yeshua the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

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

Gal. 6 [9] And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

 

 

Sad look at people from the past forsaking the Lord

"They forsook the LORD God of their fathers"


Judg. 2
[12 ] And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD to anger. [ 13] And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.

 

Judg. 10 [6 ] And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the LORD, and served not him.

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

"No king"


*** No king means no copy of this (Torah) law
which "shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life that his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel. ( Deut. 17:19, 20 above )

Judges, chapter 17:

"1": And there was a man of mount Ephraim, whose name was Micah.

"2": And he said unto his mother, The eleven hundred shekels of silver that were taken from thee, about which thou cursedst, and spakest of also in mine ears, behold, the silver is with me; I took it. And his mother said, Blessed be thou of the LORD, my son.

"3": And when he had restored the eleven hundred shekels of silver to his mother, his mother said, I had wholly dedicated the silver unto the LORD from my hand for my son, to make a graven image and a molten image: now therefore I will restore it unto thee.

"4": Yet he restored the money unto his mother; and his mother took two hundred shekels of silver, and gave them to the founder, who made thereof a graven image and a molten image: and they were in the house of Micah.

"5": And the man Micah had an house of gods, and made an ephod, and teraphim, and consecrated one of his sons, who became his priest.

6: In those days there was "no king" in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

Judges, chapter 21:

25: In those days there was "no king" in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

Proverbs, chapter 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

"They forsook the LORD their God"

David - year of 2884

Solomon - year of 2924

1Kgs.9 [9 ] And they shall answer, Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.

1Kgs.12 [8 ] But he forsook the counsel of the old men, which they had given him, and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him, and which stood before him:

[13] And the king answered the people roughly, and forsook the old men's counsel that they gave him;

2Kgs.21 [22 ] And he forsook the LORD God of his fathers , and walked not in the way of the LORD.

---------------------
2 Chronicles 15: Asa, good, 912-872 BC approx.

"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; The LORD 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. (Torah)

,

"4": But when they in their trouble did turn unto the LORD God of Israel, and sought him, he was found of them.

*** Approx. 273 years apart - Asa and Josiah

I have found the book of the law (Torah) in the house of the LORD"


2 Kgs. 22 - Josiah,
good, 639-608 BC

[1] Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty and one years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jedidah, the daughter of Adaiah of Boscath.
[2] And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD , and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left.
[3] And it came to pass in the eighteenth year of king Josiah , that the king sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, the son of Meshullam, the scribe, to the house of the LORD, saying,
[4] Go up to Hilkiah the high priest, that he may sum the silver which is brought into the house of the LORD, which the keepers of the door have gathered of the people:
[5] And let them deliver it into the hand of the doers of the work, that have the oversight of the house of the LORD: and let them give it to the doers of the work which is in the house of the LORD, to repair the breaches of the house,
[6] Unto carpenters, and builders, and masons, and to buy timber and hewn stone to repair the house.
[7] Howbeit there was no reckoning made with them of the money that was delivered into their hand, because they dealt faithfully.

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

[9] And Shaphan the scribe came to the king, and brought the king word again, and said, Thy servants have gathered the money that was found in the house, and have delivered it into the hand of them that do the work, that have the oversight of the house of the LORD.
[10] And Shaphan the scribe shewed the king, saying, Hilkiah the priest hath delivered me a book. And Shaphan read it before the king.
[11] And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of the book of the law, that he rent his clothes.
[12] And the king commanded Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Achbor the son of Michaiah, and Shaphan the scribe, and Asahiah a servant of the king's, saying,
[13] Go ye, inquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.
[14] So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;) and they communed with her.
[15] And she said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you to me,
[16] Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah hath read:
[17] Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.
[18] But to the king of Judah which sent you to inquire of the LORD, thus shall ye say to him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, As touching the words which thou hast heard;
[19] Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the LORD, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard thee, saith the LORD.
[20] Behold therefore, I will gather thee unto thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace; and thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place. And they brought the king word again.

same story in:

2 Chr. 34 [15 ] And Hilkiah answered and said to Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law ( Torah ) in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah delivered the book to Shaphan
