Shabbat Shalom

 Today we use the Gregorian calendar

(From Pope Gregory, from the 1500's) Jan. 23th, 2010

 

God has His own calendar

Today is the 7th day of the 11th month, Shevat

Zech. 1 [7] Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat, Shevat or Shvat - in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying

----------

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

 

Ex. 20 [8] Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

zâkar - zaw-kar' - A primitive root; properly to mark (so as to be recognized), that is, to remember; by implication to mention; make mention of, be mindful, recount, record (-er), remember, make to be remembered, bring (call, come, keep, put) to (in) remembrance, still, think on, well.

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.

 

The Sabbath is a "holy convocation"

miqra: convocation, convoking, reading, a calling together, sacred assembly, something called out, that is, a public meeting (the act, the persons, or the place); also a rehearsal

 

kodesh: a sacred place or thing; consecrated, dedicated, hallowed, holiness, saint, sanctuary, apartness, sacredness, separateness, apartness, sacredness, holiness

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

Today's Topic: Time, life is short

 

Some people think they have all the TIME in the world to repent and make peace with God - they dont!

Life is short and uncertain.

 

Yeshua said:

Luke 12 [16] And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

 

[17] And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

 

[18] And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

 

[19] And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

 

[20] But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

 

[21] So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

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

James say:

Jas. 4 [13] Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:

[14] Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

[15] For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

[16] But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.

[17] Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

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

Pss. 103 [15] As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

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

Jas. 1 [10] But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.

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

Job 7 [1] Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?

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

Job 14 [1] Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.

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

Pss. 144 [4] Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

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

1 Chr. 29 [15] For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.

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

Job 8:9 (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)

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

Pss. 102 [11] My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.

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

Pss. 144[4] Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

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

Ecc. 6 [12] For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?

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

Ecc. 8 [13] But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.

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

A day

Prov. 27 [1] Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

 

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

Are you keeping TIME? - There shall be "Time No Longer" - one day

 

Do you know what "DAY" it is? - There will be a "Last Day" - one day

 

Do you know there will be the day of Yehovah / the day of the Lord Yeshua?

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

Let's start:

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

 

A day of blowing the trumpets

 

Num. 29 [1] And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you.

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

A day of atonement

Lev. 23 [27] Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire

unto Yehovah.

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

Purim - a day of feasting and gladness

Esth. 9 [17] On the thirteenth day of the month Adar; and on the fourteenth day of the same rested they, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.

[18] But the Jews that were at Shushan assembled together on the thirteenth day thereof; and on the fourteenth thereof; and on the fifteenth day of the same they rested, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.

[19] Therefore the Jews of the villages, that dwelt in the unwalled towns, made the fourteenth day of the month Adar a day of gladness and feasting, and a good day, and of sending portions one to another.

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

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

 This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy

 

2 Kgs. 19 [1] And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of Yehovah.

[2] And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

[3] And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

[4] It may be Yehovah thy God will hear all the words of Rab-shakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which Yehovah thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.

[11] And Yehovah shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of Yehovah is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

[10] And it shall come to pass in that day, saith Yehovah , that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills.

[14] The great day of Yehovah is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of Yehovah: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

[15] That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

[16] A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

[17] And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Yehovah: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

[18] Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of Yehovah's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

[4] And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.


[5] For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:


[6] Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:


[7] But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

[9] That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.

 

Isa. 58 [5] Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Yehovah?

There should be time no longer

[2] And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,


[3] And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.


[4] And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.


[5] And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,


[6] And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

 

[7] But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

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

 

In conclusion:

To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts

Pss. 95 [7] For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,[8] Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
[9] When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
[10] Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:
[11] Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.

Heb. 3 [7] Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,

[8] Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
[9] When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
[10] Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
[11] So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
[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.

Heb. 4 [7] Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

 

2 Cor. 6 [2] For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted,

and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold,

Now is the accepted time;

behold, now is the day of salvation.

Dont wait for tomorrow, tomorrow may never come
