----------

Gods calendar

We are now in the 9th month, 3rd 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,

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

Today's Topic:

Many masters, teachers, books, CD's, DVD's, etc...

2 Tim. 3

[1] This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

[2] For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
[3] Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
[4] Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

[5] Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

[6] For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

[7] "Ever learning", and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

[8] Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
[9] But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.


2 Tim. 4

[1] I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;[2]

Preach the word

be instant in season

out of season

reprove

rebuke

exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine

[3] For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

[4] And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Yeshua taught:

Matt.24

[32] Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

[33] So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
[34] Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
[35] Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
[36] But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
[37] But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
[39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[40] Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
[41] Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
[42] Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
[43] But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
[44] Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
[45] Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
[46] Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
[47] Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
[48] But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
[49] And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
[50] The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
[51] And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mark 13

[28] Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:

[29] So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.
[30] Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
[31] Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
[32] But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
[33] Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
[34] For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
[35] Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
[36] Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
[37] And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Here is some wisdom:

People tell me all the time, all churches and synagogues say they are the only true right Church to attend.

Who should I believe?

Where should I attend?

-----------

Again - Prove all things with the Word

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

I have comprised a "short checklist" of scriptural credentials you need to "check off" as you carefully choose what congregation you attend and who you choose to listen too.

I have received some opposition with some of these topics, which is to be expected.

However, I say again, Prove all things with the Word

 

Lets go over this checklist the 3rd time J

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

Please, before you read this checklist, just remember:

Jer. 16 [19] O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.

 

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

Go down this short checklist pertaining to the church or synagogue you may want to attend and ask yourself these questions: Be careful!

 

This checklist is in no certain order.

1 -Does the church / synagogue believe Yeshua is the Messiah, the Word of YHVH made flesh, Savior of the world?

(Make sure they don't believe Yeshua is just some man or just a prophet)

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

2 - A - Does the church / synagogue keep the 10 commandments?

Especially look for the 4th commandment, the Sabbath, which is on Friday sundown until Saturday sundown - no work, no buying and selling.

B -What is the main day your church or synagogue meets, Saturday or Sunday? (Should be Saturday) Sunday is the first day of the week to work.

C -Does the church / synagogue say it is a commandment to light candles on the Sabbath? (Very false no such commandment in scripture)

D - Does the church / synagogue welcome in the Sabbath Queen on the Sabbath? (Very false)

Judaism has many other false traditions, beware!

Don't be tricked and brought into a "messianic" group that follows Judaism - (hundreds of flavors).

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

3 -Does the church / synagogue know and observe the "Feasts of the Lord" (not from Judaism) or do they do pagan holidays?

Some pagan holidays and observances not to observe:

Christmas

Chanukah (same time as Christmas) on the 25th of Kislev are the days of Chanukah, which are eight... these were appointed a Festival with Hillel [prayers of praise] and thanksgiving. - Shabbat 21b, Babylonian Talmud (we don't follow)

Don't buy a 8 or 9 candlestick Menorah, unscriptural, no 8 days of oil in the Maccabee stories made up

Easter

Valentines Day

Saint Patrick Day

Thanksgiving

Halloween

Fat Tuesday

Lent

Conformation

Ash Wednesday - too many Catholic feasts to list

Kwanzaa

Judaism's Rosh Hashanah, New Year and Passovers are wrong (don't follow Jewish calendars, they have made-up names)

Bar or Bat - Mitzvahs

Tu B' Shevat - too many feasts in Judaism to list

Tisha B'Av

(Just anything you can't verify by the scriptures)

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

4 -Does the church / synagogue know about the "7 Sabbaths" in the feasts of YHVH?

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

5 -What version of scripture is used at the church / synagogue? (any version other then the KJV in English is erroneous. This will show if the leader there did his or her homework on bible versions in English) There hundreds of versions to deceive you.

You better do your home work on Bible versions.

 

Don't be tricked and brought into a debate with someone you can tell did not do his or her due diligence in this matter.

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

 

6 -Does the church / synagogue add or diminish from the Word of YHVH?

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

7 -What is the title of the leader of the church / synagogue? (Make sure it is not rabbi or messianic rabbi or Father)

1 - Don't be tricked and brought into a Two House Doctrine of today (hundreds of flavors today 2009).

We do believe in the Two Houses Of Jacob, Israel, in scripture that will be brought back together and innumerable amount of nations, gentiles will the Body.

2 - Also don't be tricked into believing you "might be" Yosef or Ephraim. (You never can prove that anyway, the name Ephraim shows up "only once" in the Gospels and letters only as a city)

Read:

Rev. 7 [4] And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. (Ephraim is not named there)


[9] After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

[10] And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

Jas. 3 [1] My brethren, be not "many masters", knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

 

Try to master the Word of God

 

Ecc. 12 [12] And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

 

[13] Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.


[14] For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Remember: read, study, learn, receive, and do "The Word of God"

 

Choose wisely where you go and who you listen to for the Word of God
