All Welcome

 Lets pray

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

 

Sad to say, it was said, that the month June was named after the Roman goddess Juno, wife of Jupiter and equivalent to the Greek goddess Hera, sick.

-------------------- 

Today is June 4, 2011

----

God has His own calendar

 

Happy Rosh Chodesh / New Moon - we are now in the 3rd month called Sivan

Esth.8 [9] Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan...

the month Sivan,

-

(seev) bright, splendid

Here are the dates for 2011 again:

 

**Remember, all 2011 dates I give you start in the *evening before*

 

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

 

**Remember: There is one extra Sabbath left, besides the 7th day Sabbath each week

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

**Remember: This is the 6th Sabbath of the 7 Sabbaths we were told to count.

We are counting the "Sabbaths" not omers

 An "omer" is a "sheaf" of barley -

omer - A dry measure of 1/10 ephah (about 2 liters)

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

Lev.23 [15] And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be complete:

[16] Even unto the morrow after the seventh Sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto Yehovah.

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

Paul observing Pentecost / Feast of Weeks after the resurrection of Messiah

Acts 2 [1] And when the day of Pentecost / Feast of Weeks was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

 Acts 20 [16] For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost / Feast of Weeks.

 1 Cor. 16 [8] But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost / Feast of Weeks.

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

 

Today's topic:

Time to approach unto God, or did you look back?

 

Again, today is the 6th week of the "7 week" journey to meet God

How are you behaving these 50 days? (Physically and Spiritually)

From slaves in Egypt to the people of God

 -------------

Don't look back

 

Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Amos 3 [1] Hear this word that the YEHOVAH hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying,

[2]You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.

[3] Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

----------

Spring Holydays are almost gone again.

Summer is almost here again.

Attendance is low again.

Some people have left the congregation again.

Some people will not be with us for Feast of weeks after all my 7 weeks of preaching again.

How sad it is

This is the same message year after year

 

----------

So you want peace, forget it!

 

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.

----------

Luke 14 [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.

Simply put, whatever you put before God is your God. It is fine to prosper, be successful or be educated. Just make sure God is FIRST in everything.

 

3 John 1 [2] Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

----------

Don't look back

 

Some Christians (Messiah followers) say, this life is hard, it is vain to serve God and start to look back

 

Mal. 3 [14] Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the YEHOVAH of hosts?

----------

Exod. 14 [11] And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt , hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt? [12] Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

Ecc. 7 [10] Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this.

----------

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.

666

John 6 :66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

 -------------

Jude 1 [19] These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

----------

Jer. 7 [24] But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

----------
2 Pet. 2 [20] For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the
Yehovah and Saviour Yeshua the Messiah, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
[21] For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness,
than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
[22] But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

Prov. 26 [11] As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.

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

Luke 17 [26] And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
[27] They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that
Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

[28] Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
[29] But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
[30] Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
[31] In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

[32] Remember Lot's wife.

 

Gen.19 [26] But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

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

Backslider

sûg - soog - A primitive root; to go back, literally (to retreat) or figuratively (to apostatize): - backslider, drive, go back, turn (away, back). to move, go, turn back, move away, backslide, to backslide, prove recreant to, to turn oneself away, turn back, to be turned or driven back, be repulsed

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

Backsliding

- shûb, shoob - A primitive root; to turn back (hence, away)

Prov. 14 [14] The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.

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

We should all be in:

"ONE FAMILY"

"ONE MIND"

We are from One Blood

Rom. 15 [5] Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Messiah Yeshua:

[6] That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.

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

2 Cor. 13 [11] Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

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

Phil. 1 [27] Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Messiah: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;

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

Phil. 2 [2] Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

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

1Pet.3[8] Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

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

"ONE FAMILY"

 

Amos 3:2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth...

One family saved in Noah's time and Joshua's time at Jericho

---------

"We are all from One Blood"

Acts 17:

[23] For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD ( like most churches and synagogues) . Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. (The God of Israel)

[24] God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Yehovah of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

[25] Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

[26] And hath made of "one blood all nations of men" for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

[27] That they should seek Yehovah, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

[28] For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

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

Who or what shall separate us from the love of Messiah?

Heb. 3 [12] Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

[13] But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

[14] For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

[15] While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

[16] For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

[17] But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

[18] And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

[19] So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

-----------

Rom. 8 [35] Who shall separate us from the love of Messiah?

 

shall tribulation,

or distress,

or persecution,

or famine,

or nakedness,

or peril,

or sword?

 

[36] As it is written (Pss. 44:22), For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Pss. 44 [22] Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

 

[37] Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

[38] For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

[39] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Messiah Yeshua our Lord.

-----------

Heb. 10 [38] Now the just shall live by faith:

but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

[39] But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition;

but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

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

A few verses pertaining to the heart, the eyes and the will

Watch that heart

 

Walking after imagination of your own evil heart

Jer. 3 [17] At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of Yehovah; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of Yehovah, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.

Jer. 7 [24] But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

Jer. 11 [8] Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do; but they did them not.

Jer. 16 [12] And ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me:

Jer. 18 [12] And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.

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

A few verses pertaining to the heart

Prov. 10 [20] The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth.

Prov. 12 [20] Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellers of peace is joy.

[23] A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.

Prov. 18 [12] Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.

Prov. 22 [15] Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

Ecc. 7 [3] Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.

[4] The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.

Ecc. 8 [11] Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil

Ecc. 9 [3] This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.

Jer. 17 [9] The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Hos. 4 [11] Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.

Matt. 12 [34] O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

[35] A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Matt. 15 [18] But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

[19] For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

[20] These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

 

 Mark 7 [21] For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

[22] Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
[23] All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

Luke 6 [45] A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

 ----------------

Devised of his own heart

1 Kgs. 12 [27] If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of Yehovah at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of this people turn again unto their lord, even unto Rehoboam king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of Judah.
[28] Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
[29] And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan.
[30] And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan.
[31] And he made
an house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi.

[32] And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made.

[33] So he offered upon the altar which he had made in Bethel the fifteenth day of the eighth month, even in the month which he had devised of his own heart; and ordained a feast unto the children of Israel: and he offered upon the altar, and burnt incense.

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

Seek not after your own eyes

Num. 15 [38] Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:

[39] And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of Yehovah, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:

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

Deut. 12 [8] Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.

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

Judg. 17 [6] In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

-----------

Judg. 21 [25] In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

-----------

Pss. 36 [1] The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
[2] For he
flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
[3] The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do
good.
[4] He
deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.

-----------

Prov. 3 [7] Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear Yehovah, and depart from evil.

-----------

Prov. 12 [15] The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

-----------

Prov. 16 [2] All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but Yehovah weigheth the spirits.

-----------

Prov. 21 [2] Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but Yehovah pondereth the hearts.

-----------

Prov. 30 [12] There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.

[13] There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.
[14] There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.
-----------

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!

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

Power over your own will

Lev. 19 [5] And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto Yehovah, ye shall offer it at your own will.

Lev. 22 [19] Ye shall offer at your own will a male without blemish, of the beeves, of the sheep, or of the goats.

[29] And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto Yehovah, offer it at your own will.

 1 Cor. 7 [37] ... hath power over his own will

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

Yeshua said: I seek not mine own will

John 5 [30] I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

MAKE A STAND FOR GOD ONCE AND FOR ALL!

Feast of Weeks is coming next week!

2 Sabbaths in a row

Shabbat Shalom

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

Misc: You thought I forgot, didnt you?

For you benefit, I explain the Sabbath each week

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.

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

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.

 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.

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?

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

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

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

 

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

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 is a Sabbath Luke 23:56

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

----

"In the future"

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

Again, Shabbat Shalom
