10th month - Teveth -

12th day

Esth.2 [16] So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.

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

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.

A few days ago (many 1000's of years ago)

 

tenth month, in the "tenth day" of the month

Jer. 39 [1] In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they beseiged it.

Jer. 52 [4] And it came to pass in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came, he and all his army, against Jerusalem, and pitched against it, and built forts against it round about.

Why was the Temple (house) of God destroyed?

1 Kgs. 9

[1] And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the house of the LORD, and the king's house, and all Solomon's desire which he was pleased to do,
[2] That the LORD appeared to Solomon the second time, as he had appeared unto him at Gibeon.
[3] And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
[4] And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments:
[5] Then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel.

[6] But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them:

[7] Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:

[8] And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and to this house?

[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.

2 Chr. 7

[1] Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house.
[2] And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD's house.
[3] And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
[4] Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the LORD.
[5] And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and an hundred and twenty thousand sheep: so the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
[6] And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of musick of the LORD, which David the king had made to praise the LORD, because his mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.
[7] Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of the LORD: for there he offered burnt offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the brasen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, and the meat offerings, and the fat.
[8] Also at the same time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt.
[9] And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.
[10] And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that the LORD had shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
[11] Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD, and the king's house: and all that came into Solomon's heart to make in the house of the LORD, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.
[12] And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.
[13] If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
[14] If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
[15] Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
[16] For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
[17] And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statues and my judgments;
[18] Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.

[19] But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;

[20] Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.

[21] And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and unto this house?

[22] And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.

The spirit of Antichrist

The spirit of Error

The god of this world (Satan)

---

The changing of times and laws (of God)

The spirit of antichrist is already in the world

(since John's time)

The "man of sin" - son of perdition

 

1 John 2 [18] Little children, it is the last time: and "as ye have heard that antichrist shall come", even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

[19] They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

1 John 4 [1] Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
[2] Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Yeshua the Messiah is come in the flesh (of Israel) is of God:

[3] And every spirit that confesseth not that Yeshua the Messiah is come in the flesh (of Israel) is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

[4] Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he (Satan) that is in the world.

2 Cor. 4 [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 Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Back to 1 John 4

[5] They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

[6] We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

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

The "man of sin", as of Jan. 10th, 2009 has not showed up yet.

***** The "man of sin" exalteth himself

***** The "man of sin" exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped

2 Thes. 2

[1] Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and by our gathering together unto him,

[2] That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

[3] Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

[4] Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

***** The "man of sin" will exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god

Dan. 11 [36] And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

[37] Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

back to:

2 Thes. 2

[5] Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

[6] And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

[7] For the mystery of iniquity doth already work : only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

[8] And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

[9] Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

[10] And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

[11] And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

[12] That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

--

[13] But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

[14] Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.

[15] Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

[16] Now our Lord Yeshua the Messiah himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,

[17] Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
-----------------

These terms below have been coming up in conversations lately:

2 Cor. 4 [3] But if our gospel be hid,

it is hid to them that are lost...

 

Another Yeshua / Jesus - Another Gospel - Another Spirit

2 Cor. 11 [4] For if he that cometh preacheth another Yeshua / Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted,

ye might well bear with him. (Why would you do this?)

Gal. 1 [6] I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Messiah / Christ unto another gospel:

[7] Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Messiah / Christ.


[8] But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.


[9] As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

[10] For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Messiah / Christ.


[11] But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.


[12] For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Yeshua the Messiah.

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

The spirit of Antichrist

The spirit of Error

Dan. 7 [25] And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

---

The spirit of antichrist is already in the world

(since John's time)

The changing of times and laws (of God)

2 Cor. 4 [3] But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:


Just to name a few changes:

 

-----

God's days are called Holydays, Feasts of the Lord - the world uses the word Holidays and no feasts of the Lord

Lev. 23

[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.

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

[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:

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

-----

The Truth (the Word) has been replaced by philosophy, vain deceit, and traditions of men, Jewish fables and commandments of men.

-----

New moon is not talked about any more except in Wiccan pagan circles. The full moon is talked about.

Always read out of context:

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; but the body is of Messiah.

-----

God's 7th day Sabbath has been replaced by Sunday, 1st day or made-up lunar sabbath doctrine

Gen. 2 [2] And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. [3] And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

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

Exod. 20 [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.

-----

God's elections in Deut. 17 has been replaced by world election and voting systems.

Deut. 17 [14] When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me; [15] Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.
-----

The Messiah (Yeshua) has been replaced by false messiahs

-----

Names of the days of the week and names of the months are all replaced by pagan names.

-----

God's New Year (Exod. 12 - during Spring) has been replaced by Pope Gregory's Jan. 1 (during Winter).

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

Passover

-----

In Judaism and with Karaites - Blood sacrifices for sin (on the Day of Atonement) have been replaced by good deeds and fasting.

Exod. 30 [10] And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it is most holy unto the LORD.

-----

The One Body (of Messiah) has been replaced by the 1000's of churches and Synagogues - many bodies

Rom. 12 [4] For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: [5] So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

1 Cor. 6 [16] What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

1 Cor. 10 [17] For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

1 Cor. 12 [12] For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. [13] For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

[20] But now are they many members, yet but one body.

Eph. 2 [16] And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Eph. 4 [4] There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

Col. 3 [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.

-----

One Law for all

Exod. 12 [49] One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.

Num. 15 [16] One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.

[29] Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.

Jas. 4 [12] There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

------

In Col. 2:16, the "shadows of things to come" from Messiah's body are obscured and forgotten by most people on the earth.

Always read out of context:

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; but the body is of Messiah.

-----

Modest apparel has been replaced by the attire of a harlot. (Nakedness)

Prov. 7 [10] And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.

1Tim. 2 [9] In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

[10] But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

1 Timothy 5:2: The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.

------

Topic of clean and unclean are never discussed (foods, animals, etc.)

Lev.11 [46] This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth: [47] To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.

------

Eating blood and fat are common place today

Lev. 3 [17] It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood.

-------

Be perfect - replaced by just try

Deut. 18 [13] Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.

Matt. 5 [48] Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

So what can we do?

 

2 Tim. 4 [2] Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

2 Tim.2 [15] Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

1Thes. 5 [21] Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

Isa. 34 [16] Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read ...

-------

Please try with all your heart, in your generation to be a restorer of the changed times and laws (of God).

Isa. 58 [12] be a builder of the old waste places:

Raise up the foundations of many generations;

A repairer of the breach,

A restorer of paths to dwell in
