Shabbat Shalom

 

The Gregorian calendar (Pope Gregory, 1500's) June 13, 2009

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

 

We restore the calendar of God

 

 We are now in the 3rd month of God called Sivan, 19th day

 

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

 

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

 

  We restore the Sabbath

 

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.

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

 

We restore the land of God back to Israel

 

 Lev. 25 1] And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying, [23] The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

 

"Remember"

Scripture never calls the Arabs, Palestinians.

There is no language known as Palestinian.

There is no distinct Palestinian culture.

There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians.

There is no provision in the scriptures for a two state solution

(No made up Palestinian state in Israel)

Judaea and Samaria are never called the "west bank" in scripture

Judaea and Samaria are part of Israel

---------

Beware of Propaganda

Term - occupied territory-by Jews - (God gave the land to Israel and their seed)

Don't say - Gaza is for Palestinians (Gaza is part of the inheritance of the tribe of Judah)

Don't say - Agree to give away God's land for false peace

Don't say - Agree to disagree that Israel is the home 3 religions: Catholic, Protestant and Islam

Don't say - Be politically correct by calling Israel, Palestine

New for me - A U.S. president, Obama, quoting the Koran (calling it holy)

----------

Scripture says:

Exod. 23 [32]Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.

[33] They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.

Some News:

Anti-Semitism

Guard dies after Holocaust museum shooting - Authorities say they're investigating a white supremacist as the suspect: A security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum who was fatally shot was described as a warm man with a wonderful smile who acted courageously when the gunman opened fire in the building.

The gunman exchanged fire Wednesday with guards, including 39-year-old Stephen T. Johns, who died at a Washington hospital from his injuries, police said.

Authorities have said 88-year-old James W. von Brunn, a white supremacist, was under investigation in the shooting.

 Rev. Jeremiah Wright says "Jews" are keeping him from President Obama

 

Just for the record, before it gets by; Talk about pandering to the crowd, Obama says that ' Islam had always been part of America's story'

"As a student of history, I also know civilization debt to Islam.

It was Islam at places like Al-Azhar University that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europes Renaissance and Enlightenment. It was innovation in Muslim communities that developed the order of algebra; our magnetic compass and tools of navigation; our mastery of pens and printing; our understanding of how disease spreads and how it can be healed. Islamic culture has given us majestic arches and soaring spires; timeless poetry and cherished music; elegant calligraphy and places of peaceful contemplation. And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality."

Obama is very wrong and in not a student of history if he believes the above statement.

All advancements in history he attributes to the Muslims were due to someone else. Look it up. The truth is out there.

Topic:

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

Spring Holydays are gone. Summer is here. Attendance is low. Some people have left the congregation - how sad.

 

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.

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.

-----------

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.

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

 

Are you on "stony places"?

Matt. 13 [[20] But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; [21] Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

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

Some good correction and reproof

What will keep you from inheriting the kingdom of God?

 

1 Cor. 6 [9] Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

Be not deceived:

neither fornicators,

nor idolaters,

nor adulterers,

nor effeminate,

nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

[10] Nor thieves,

nor covetous,

nor drunkards,

nor revilers,

nor extortioners,

shall inherit the kingdom of God.

-----------

 

Gal.5 [19] Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;

Adultery,

fornication,

uncleanness,

lasciviousness,

[20] Idolatry,

witchcraft,

hatred,

variance,

emulations,

wrath,

strife,

seditions,

heresies,

[21] Envyings,

murders,

drunkenness,

revellings,

and such like:

of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that

they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

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

Matt. 16 [26] For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

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.

[27] And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

[33] So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

 

John 12 [25] He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.



------ "Have Faith" -----

 

Heb. 11

[1] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

[2] For by it the elders obtained a good report.

[3] Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

------------
[4] By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

------------
[5] By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

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

[6] But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

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

[7] By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

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

[8] By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. [9] By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: [10] For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

------------
[11] Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

------------
[12] Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

[13] These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
[14] For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
[15] And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
[16] But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

------------
[17] By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
[18] Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
[19] Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

------------
[20] By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.

------------
[21] By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

------------
[22] By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

------------
[23] By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.

------------
[24] By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
[25] Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
[26] Esteeming the reproach of Messiah greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

------------
[27] By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
[28] Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

------------
[29] By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

------------
[30] By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

------------
[31] By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

------------
[32] And what shall I more say?

for the time would fail me to tell of:

Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:


[33] Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
[34] Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
[35] Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
[36] And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
[37] They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
[38] (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
[39] And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
[40] God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

own heart

1 Kgs. 12 [27] If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of the LORD 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.

own eyes

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

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

Yeshua said:

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.

 

Seek the will of the Father - have "faith" to endure unto the end
