 Today we use the Gregorian calendar

(From Pope Gregory, from the 1500's) Feb. 13th, 2010

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

 

We read from law and the prophets every Sabbath.

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

Back to Ex. 20

[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.

 

Rev.1 [10] I was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day - (The Sabbath)

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

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 the LORD in all your dwellings.

U.S. distrusts Iran nuclear breakthrough bragging - Friday, February 12, 2010

http://washingtontimes.com/news/2010/feb/12/us-doubts-iran-nuke-breakthrough/

The White House on Thursday dismissed Iran's boasts of a nuclear breakthrough, as pro- and anti-regime demonstrators massed on the streets of Tehran during the 31st anniversary of Iran's revolution.

Responding to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's announcement that Iranian scientists had succeeded in enriching uranium to the 20 percent level needed for medical isotopes, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said he did not believe it.

"He says many things, and many of them turn out to be untrue," Mr. Gibbs said. "We do not believe they have the capability to enrich to the degree to which they now say they are enriching."

Oh well, we see...

MISC: one reminder

When "Persia" became "Iran"

The Nazis connection

http://www.iranchamber.com/geography/articles/persia_became_iran.php


This article is a part of "Persia or Iran" by Professor Ehsan Yarshater, published in Iranian Studies, Vol. XXII, No.1, 1989.

In 1935 the Iranian government requested those countries which it had diplomatic relations with, to call Persia "Iran," which is the name of the country in Persian.

The suggestion for the change is said to have come from the Iranian ambassador to Germany, who came under the influence of the Nazis.

At the time Germany was in the grip of racial fever and cultivated good relations with nations of "Aryan" blood. It is said that some German friends of the ambassador persuaded him that, as with the advent of Reza Shah, Persia had turned a new leaf in its history and had freed itself from the pernicious influences of Britain and Russia, whose interventions in Persian affairs had practically crippled the country under the Qajars, it was only fitting that the country be called by its own name, "Iran."

This would not only signal a new beginning and bring home to the world the new era in Iranian history, but would also signify the Aryan race of its population, as "Iran" is a cognate of "Aryan" and derived from it.

The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent out a circular to all foreign embassies in Tehran, requesting that the country thenceforth be called "Iran." Diplomatic courtesy obliged, and by and by the name "Iran" began to appear in official correspondence and news items.

At first "Iran" sounded alien (for non-Iranians), and many failed to recognize its connection with Persia. Some (Westerners) thought that it was perhaps one of the new countries like Iraq and Jordan carved out of the ruins of the Ottoman Empire, or a country in Africa or Southeast Asia that had just been granted independence; and not a few confused it with Iraq, itself a recent entity.

As time passed and as a number of events, like the Allied invasion of Iran in 1941 and the nationalization of the oil industry under Prime Minster Dr Mohammad Mosaddeq, put the country in the headlines, the name "Iran" became generally accepted, and "Persia" fell into comparative disuse, though more slowly in Britain than in the United States.

This weeks Topic:

Lets cut to the chase, the bottom line

Before we start, I just want to say, I am always amazed at people that say they don't believe in God, devils or angels.

I perceive they are deceived by Satan!

----------

Question: Who is your main enemy?

Answer: the great dragon, the old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan

Read all about Satan in Isaiah 14:12-20 and Ezekiel 28:1-19

----------

In the Gospels and letters, there are 113 matches for the words devil and devils

Here are some:

Rev. 12 [7] And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
[
8] And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

[9] And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

[12] Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

----------

1Pet. 5 [8 ] Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil , as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

----------

In the Gospels and letters, there are 37 matches for the word Satan

Here are some verses:

Satan is around to stop, possess, deceive, tempt, provoke, tare, vex, bind, resist, hinder, throw you down, fill your heart (to lie) and talk to you!

2 Cor. 11 [13] For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Messiah.

 

[14] And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.


[15] Therefore it is no great thing if his, (Satan) ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

----------

1 Chr. 21 [1] And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.

----------

Job 1 [6] Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before Yehovah,, and Satan came also among them.

[7] And Yehovah, said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered Yehovah, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

[8] And Yehovah, said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

[9] Then Satan answered Yehovah, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?

[10] Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
[11] But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

[12] And Yehovah, said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of Yehovah.
----------

Job 2 [1] Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before Yehovah, and Satan came also among them to present himself before Yehovah.

[2] And Yehovah, said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered Yehovah, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

[3] And Yehovah, said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

[4] And Satan answered Yehovah,, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.

[6] And Yehovah, said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.

[7] So went Satan forth from the presence of Yehovah, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.

----------

Zech. 3 [1] And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of Yehovah, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.

----------

Mark 1 [13] And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

----------

Mark 4 [15] And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

----------

Luke 13 [16] And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?

----------

Luke 22 [31] And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: [32] But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren

----------

Acts 5 [3] But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

----------

1 Cor. 7 [5] Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency

----------

2 Cor. 2[11] Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

----------

1 Thes. 2 [18] Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.

----------

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 Messiah 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.
[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.

----------

Rev. 2 [9] I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

[13] I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

[24] But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden

----------

The devil is around to stop, possess, deceive, tempt, provoke, tare, vex, bind, resist, hinder, throw you down, fill your heart (to lie) and talk to you!

There are many verses in Scripture pertaining to casting out devils, Satan, and unclean spirits from where life is, people and animals, no objests, etc.

Also these devils can speak!

 

Gen. 3

[1] Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Yehovah God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

[2] And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
[3] But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
[4] And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
[5] For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

[14] Stand therefore , having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

[15] And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

[16] Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

[18] Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

[19] And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

[20] For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

----------
