The Gregorian calendar (Pope Gregory, 1500's) July 11, 2009

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

 

We restore the calendar of God

 

We are now in the 4th month of God, no name in scripture 18th day

 

Should we call the 4th month Tammuz? No!

Tammuz - (pagan deity) - a Sumerian deity of food or vegetation, a Phoenician deity

Ezek.8 [14] Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz -

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

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.

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

 

My ministry, at this time, is to "bring back" the forgotten Word of God

 

Here are a few that are forgotten

 

The forgotten law

Tanakh : Hebrew Bible (Torah - Law/Teaching, Nevi'im/Prophets and Ketivim/Writings). Approx. 77% lost

 

The forgotten calendar of God - God's Calendar - replaced by Pope Gregory's Calendar (1500's) (we use today)

 

The forgotten 7th day Sabbath, a sign - which is the 4th commandment and part of the covenant of God

 

The forgotten feasts of the Lord

 

The forgotten 7 Sabbaths in the feasts and holy days of the Lord

 

The forgotten 10 Commandments

 

The forgotten food laws

 

The forgotten land of God

 

The forgotten topic of clean and unclean

 

The forgotten topic of being Holy and separate

(in all manner of conversation and dress)

The world says be sexy, God says be holy. (Leviticus 19:2 ...Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.)

 

The forgotten topic of being perfect (in God)

The world says, no one's perfect.

God says, be perfect as My Father which is in heaven is perfect.

(Matthew 5:48)

 

The forgotten topic of sin - Don't sin willfully

The world says, everyone sins, Yeshua / Jesus says, "Go and sin no more". (John 8:11: ... go, and sin no more).

 

As they say, the list goes on and on...

There are many other forgotten words from the scriptures

 

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

Today's Topic:

Are you - zealous - jealous - for God's sake?

Is God first in your life or are your (grand) father, (grand) mother, husband, wife, (grand) children, relatives, friends, animals, stuff, and things in your like first?

 

You need to forsake all that you have that is before the Lord

 

Exod. 20 [3] Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

 

Whatever or whomever you put before God is your god.

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

 

Is the Lord First and Last in your life?

 

Rev. 22 [13] I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

 

I am the Alef and the Tav

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

A man's foes, enemies

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.

--

Mic. 7 [6] For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house.

--

back to Matt. 10

[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.

 

Again, You need to forsake all that you have that is before the Lord

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

Are you jealous for the YHVH your God?

Elijah -

1 Kgs. 19 [10] And he said, I have been very jealous for the YHVH God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

[14] And he said, I have been very jealous for the YHVH God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

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

Does your zeal provoke many, in a good way, to make a stand for God and server the Lord?

 

2 Cor. 9 [2] For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked very many.

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

Gal. 4 [18] But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.

 

Acts 21 [20] And when they heard it, they glorified the Lord, and said unto him, Thou seest, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are which believe; and they are all zealous of the law:

 

Acts 22 [3] I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.

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

Let's read about Phinehas - (sounds like Peen-chas)

"He was zealous for My sake"

Num. 25

[1] And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.

[2] And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.

[3] And Israel joined himself unto Baal-peor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.

[4] And the LORD said unto Moses,

Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel.

[5] And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baal-peor.

----------

[6] And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.


[7] And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand;

[8] And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.

[9] And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand.

----

[10] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

[11] Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy.

[12] Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:

[13] And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.

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

[14] Now the name of the Israelite that was slain, even that was slain with the Midianitish woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu, a prince of a chief house among the Simeonites.

[15] And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain was Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he was head over a people, and of a chief house in Midian.

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

[16] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

[17] Vex the Midianites, and smite them:
[18] For they vex you with their wiles, wherewith they have beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of a prince of Midian, their sister, which was slain in the day of the plague for Peor's sake.


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

The LORD is jealous

Exod. 20 [5] Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

 

Exod. 34 [14] For thou shalt worship no other god: for YHVH, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

 

Deut. 4 [24] For the YHVH thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

 

Deut. 5 [9] Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the YHVH thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

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

YHVH was jealous for:

Joel. 2 [18] Then will YHVH be jealous for his land, and pity his people.

 

Zech. 1 [14] So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.

 

Zech. 8 [2] Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.

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

"The zeal of YHVH of hosts"

Messiah

Isa. 9

[1] Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.
[2] The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
[3] Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
[4] For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.
[5] For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.

[6] For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

[7] Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of YHVH of hosts will perform this.

--------

2 Kgs. 19 [31] For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of YHVH of hosts shall do this.

 

Yeshua's Zeal

John 2 [12] After this he (Yeshua) went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.

[13] And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Yeshua went up to Jerusalem,

[14] And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:

[15] And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;

[16] And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

[17] And his disciples remembered that it was written, (Pss. 69:9) The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

 

Pss. 69 [9] For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.

[13] Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Yeshua the Messiah;
[14] Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works
.

[15] These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
