What Happens To Us After Death?

November 4th, 2012

One question that is often asked. What happens to us after death?

 

The Christian teachings are far too many in their differences.. I am not an expert on Christian teachings. I will not rehearse the teachings that I have been exposed to. I am not really interested in researching Christian teachings beyond what I presently understand. At lest, not at this time. Personal experiences have taught me that caution should be exercised before embracing an alleged truth. Remember, Satan has many snares set in our path. Avoid being deceived by knowing Yahweh’s (God’s) word, the whole bible. Demand that all forms of communications should harmonizes with Yahweh’s word, even if you should have a communication from an Angel. So, I have tried to limit or support my arguments with scripture, Yahweh’s word.

Yahweh is the source of all power and has endowed many of us with agency. Surely, there are a number of us that are spared the ability of being able to understand right from wrong. Therefore, are assured Yahweh’s charity regarding the mortal experience. I set aside my past anxiousness for my progeny and fellow travelers and rest in Yahweh’s excellent loving kindness. Are we not all spirit children from the same Heavenly Father, Yahweh. Each of us agreed to participating in this mortal experience? Surely, you must know that Yahweh does not require or subject us to a vain thing. HalleluYah!

Do we go immediately to heaven or hell?

No and yes!

Yes, most of the human family will go immediately to that dimension referred to as hell.

Hell, a place where spirit bodies which have been separated from their mortal bodies reside until the resurrection they qualify for.

No, if you think of heaven as a place where Yahweh and Yahushua (Jesus) resides. Righteous spirits rest while awaiting the first resurrection. This place may be referred to as, “Abraham’s bosom” or as some choose to call paradise.

 

Luke 23:42-43 (KJV)

42 And he said unto Yahushua (Jesus ), Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

43 And Yahushua (Jesus) said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.

The inhabitants of these two places will be able to see our Messiah, Yahushua at his return to this planet. He will bear his Father’s name Yahweh. HalleluYah!

1 Corinthians 15:44 (KJV)

44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

 

Please understand that the spirit body existed before the mortal and that the immortal body shall be our final reward. Truly, our spirit body has been clothed with these marvelous bodies of flesh and blood. There is more to understand but this is all I chose to describe at this time.

 

 James 2:26 (KJV)

For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

 

Luke 24 (KJV) Yahushua (Jesus) is talking after his resurrection.

39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

47And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name Yahushua ( Jesus) among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

There never was a man with the name, “Jesus”. It is important to realize this fact. I challenge you to research this claim. Is it not obvious to you why Satan has been busy hiding Yahweh’s name and his messiah, “Yahushua”?

 

There is a great deal of blindness regarding the biblical truth about this subject. Many have sight but can not see, ears that hear but fail to understand. The lust of the world deceives too many. Humble your spirit as you seek to understand the things that are of eternal value to you.

 

A number of scriptures have been collected and presented for your benefit. May your spirit be comforted.

Luke 16:19-31 (KJV)

19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:

28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

1 Peter 4:6 (KJV)

6 For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to Elohim (God) in the spirit.

1 Peter 3:18-22 (KJV)

18 For Messiah (Christ) also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to

Elohim (God), being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of Elohim (God) waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward Elohim (God),) by the resurrection of Yahushua the Messiah (Jesus Christ):

22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of Elohim (God); angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

Hebrews 11:35

35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

Acts 2:31

31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

Revelation 20:6

6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Acts 23:8

8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both.

I fear that I am somewhat lazy or I would contend with more detail but surely the Holy Spirit will bless the truth seeker who humbles themselves. I seldom check the comment section of my blog since I have been spammed so very much.

 

HalleluYah!

Womb

September 5th, 2011

 Vital Health Science Breakthrough of Our Life Time!

This word is used seventy-one times in the King James Bible. The word womb is used metaphorically a number of times. This word, “womb” is used to describe the portal/doorway between the spirit world and the one time mortal experience. Read the verse below thoughtfully. Job has just lost all his wealth and his much loved children.

 Job 1:21

And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: Yahweh gave, and Yahweh hath taken away; blessed be the name of Yahweh. 

I find myself in awe at the humble, submissive and trusting reverence with which Job declares his love for Yahweh, his Elohim (God). This verse speaks so admirably about Job’s sterling character. Shouldn’t each of us be delighted in having been exposed to the lessons taught in the book of Job? Job is truly a wonderful Old Testament book and if you haven’t carefully studied it, please do. The New Testament of the bible declares that Job was indeed a real historic person. Consider the following for a moment. 

Job 42:10-13

10  And Yahweh turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also Yahweh gave Job twice as much as he had before.  

11  Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that Yahweh had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold. 

12  So Yahweh blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. 

Verse 12 indicates that Job had gained double of all that was mention of his possessions pryer to the start of his calamity as stated in verse 10. However take notice of the numbers regarding his children. 

13 He had also seven sons and three daughters. 

We are confident that Yahweh our Elohim would not lie. Therefore, there is something wonderful to understand about this discrepancy. What is it? Well, consider this. If the ten children that were killed, will be in company with Job in the after life, then this fulfills Yahweh’s gift of twice as much. HalleluYah! Isn’t our Elohim (God) wonderful beyond words? 

Back to the subject of the WOMB of the spirit world. I am personally confident that all life has a spiritual component. Surely, all life comes from life. Are you able to grasp the implication of that thought. 

Most of us are aware that we are separated from our mother’s womb in an unclothed state, otherwise known as naked. But, who among us, have ever heard of someone returning, re-entering there mother’s womb, naked or otherwise? 

Verse Job 1:21 strongly indicates Job’s understanding of where he and his children came from. His understanding must surely have provided comfort in knowing where we are all destined to return too. Job is able to bless the name of Yahweh, our creator. Yes indeed, Job knows we all enter mortality from the womb of the spiritual dimension unto the mortal womb of our mortal mothers. We are clothed in our mortal mother’s womb with flesh, bone and all the other elements that equips us for this brief pilgrimage. After we all profit from this earthly experience, we must return to the spiritual realm, naked. Yes, after having been stripped of all earthly clothes, flesh,bone etc.,nothing save knowledge may accompany us on our return trip to the spirit world. In the spirit realm we shall wait to be called forth once again to be clothed with incorruptible clothes, in other words, an incorruptible body. 

Allow me to add one more thought before closing. 

Job 19:25-27 

25  For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: 

26  And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:  

27  Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

My dear brothers and sisters, I also bare witness, that I know that our redeemer lives. May his grace be upon us for the remainder of our mortality. May we be welcomed into the Kingdom of Yahweh our Elohim. HalleluYah!

Men And Women In Yahweh

July 10th, 2011

 Vital Health Science Breakthrough of Our Life Time!

I listened to a man speaking at a demonstration that was being held in favor of conventional marriage and covered by some television station. The individual said something like, “Tell the truth, how did you get here”? Undoubtedly, his remark made clear that conventional marriage was the way the human family was propagated. Obviously, this is not of much interest to segments of our population. 

Happiness is something that is desired by all of us. However, without obedience to Yahweh’s Laws there can be no happiness, no peace and nothing but a vain life. Personally, I seek to follow the admonishment found in Psalm 1. 

Psalm 1:1

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly (lawless ones), nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. ( enjoy the rest of this Psalm) 

 

1 Corinthians 11:11

Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord (Yahweh).

 

The previous verse says in a clear way what is needful to please Yahweh your Creator. Those who do not believe in a Creator are beyond the reach of any argument I might construct. No one will escape the absolute truth regarding Yahweh your Elohim and your Messiah. For your benefit, the question is, when will you repent? I promise, no rest, no peace, even though your body lay still in the grave or dust until you become reconciled with Yahweh. The sooner the better.

 There are some very painful comments in the Bible about same sex relationships that I am not willing to find at this time.

Yahweh loves all his children, even those that depart from his plan for our mortal and eternal happiness. May Yahweh keep safe and bless each of you in your journey.

Scriptures Lie!

June 24th, 2011

Vital Health Science Breakthrough of Our Life Time!

My Brothers and Sisters, you are the sons and daughters of the most high, creator of the heavens and earth and everything that is in them. Rejoice and be pleased to know that this state of weakness, this mortal estate is for your eternal well being and is but a short season. We must learn humility. We need to repent from our rebellion. Our whole duty is to be obedient to the Torah Law. The Ten Commandments are a good beginning. May Yahweh bless each of us. Shalom and HalleluYah! 

Isaiah 1:2 (KJV) Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD (Yahweh) hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.  

Brothers and Sisters, surely you are seekers after the truth. Truth, all truth, comes from your Creator, your Eternal Heavenly Father, Yahweh. 

Jeremiah 8:8 (KJV) How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD (Yahweh) is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain. 

The G-d, the usurper, father of all LIES, Satan the Devil has caused scripture to be altered. Yes, the seeds of contention, confusion and error have been successfully planted by the wicked scribes. The name of our Eternal Father, Yahweh has been remove from most English translations. Removed 6823 time from the Old Testament of some versions. I am not sure of the number, but Yahweh’s name has also been removed many times from the New Testament as well. If only, this was the extent of the corruption of our scriptures. Unfortunately, I can not tell you to what extent as of yet that our scriptures have been altered. The Trinity, Communion, Eternal Punishment, Tithe, Jesus, LORD, GOD and names in general are all suspect. The declaration that Yahweh (G-D) is not a respecter of persons is certainly not clearly demonstrated by any coherent arguments. 

Hosea 4:6(KJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God (Elohim), I will also forget thy children. 

We are commanded to broadcast Yahweh’s name and share his message of truth which has the power to establish happiness among the peoples of this world. Don’t be alarmed or angry, rather, rejoice that you now know what his name is. I have lived nearly all my life without the knowledge of our Creator’s name. Yahweh is the creator of our flesh and father of our spirit. GOD and LORD is not the Creator’s name. This is a LIE and a lie is not from Yahweh, not ever. 

Joel 2: 32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD (Yahweh) shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD (Yahweh) hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD (Yahweh) shall call. 

How can we call upon his name when it is hide from us. Did you know that Enos, the grandson of Adam, the first man, called upon Yahweh by name? Well, he did and so should we. 

Malachi 1:11(KJV) For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name (Yahweh) shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name (Yahweh) shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD (Yahweh) of hosts. 

HalleluYah! Let us cause it to happen.

You and I are left with a serious problem. How are we to know the truth? If our scriptures are suspect, where can we turn? I am working on the problem. I know we need the gift of the Spirit of Yahweh to be upon us in order to be enlightened and successfully obedient. I know this influence happily is in the world for our benefit. Why are not all men drawn by Yahweh to a knowledge of truth while yet mortal? Is this not a mystery that too few people ponder? Unless, you have a understanding of pre-existence and prejudgment, you are left to console yourself with the thought that G-D’s ways are not for us to understand. The Messiah’s work is not diminished by keeping the LAW nor removes the necessity of it. 

I have arrived at an age that causes one not to plan too far ahead. I know, no one, young or old, should live his life like there is always tomorrow. I would that, I was able to tell you just exactly what to expect when passing from mortal life. The many ways that Yahweh has intervened among men in the past, according to the Bible, even at this time and age, are still being manifested. Yahweh has not changed, his purpose will not fail. His work is to bring about immortal and eternal life for all his children. Let us be determined to return into his loving presence. HalleluYah!

Do Creatures Receive Incorruptible Bodies?

April 9th, 2011

Vital Health Science Breakthrough of Our Life Time!

 

Yes, that is what the bible teaches.

Romans 8:21
Because the
creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God (Elohim).

This makes me happy. Many of us have had the pleasure of sharing our lives with a pet. Our pets are often very close. It is a great joy to realize that the other species of this world will have glorious bodies in the eternity. 

My wife and I have been enjoying the friendship and companionship of five dogs. They are much like living with children. They are needy like children. They require a lot of maintenance and constant show of affection. Each of them have individual personalities. When you encourage them, they freely communicate their needs and affection in many clever ways.

We recently lost our Molly, a black Lhasa Apso to death because of cancer of the thyroid. She was twelve and half, very sweet, assertive, courageous and will be sorely missed. Her separation was surprisingly painful for both my wife and myself. We nursed her along for the better part of a year. No matter how carefully we prepared her favored foods she became skin and bones. We gave her vitamins and minerals which seem to stimulate her appetite but nothing could overcome the damage caused by the cancerous thyroid. She became very weak and had difficulty in controlling her urine, though she tried. I couldn’t take her life from her. She became hard of hearing, lost sight in her left eye but never complained. She died in the early morning before anyone had gotten up while laying on a comfortable double blanket in front of the television in the living room. She had not allowed herself to eat anything that day. I remember her laying on the sidewalk just beyond the first step to our front door. I remember thinking,”It’s good that she is enjoying the warmth of the evening sun light, and was seeming to enjoy looking at the world aroung her.” I know all creatures have a built-in joy for life and will hang-on to it fearsly.

I am moved to tears when I think of her because of our loss and I wish I could have been of more comfort. Romans 8:21 gives me hope of knowing her again in the after life. I sought to influence Yahweh to allow her to stay longer but his will be done. I am grateful for his world and all of the wonderful creatures in it. All life is precious and should be reverenced in our hearts. HalleluYah!

Spirit / Holy Ghost — All Bible Verses Examined.

April 3rd, 2011

 Vital Health Science Breakthrough of Our Life Time!

 

 The following are comments made after each verse containing the word Spirit or Holy Ghost. The term Holy Ghost is only used in the New Testament. Out of twenty three versions of the bible that I examined, only three used the term Holy Ghost.

Malachi 2:10

Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?

First, the reference of one father (Yahweh) and secondly one creator God (Elohim, Yahweh’s family) is tied to our being. The one father could be Adam, while one God (Elohim) could be Yahushua (Jesus). No matter which entity brings about the will of Yahweh the Almighty Heavenly Father, it should be understood that the source of all power and light of understanding always comes from Yahweh. We might also understand that the one Father (Yahweh) and God (Elohim) to be Yahweh our almighty heavenly Father full of glory is the source of all the power sustaining our world. Life is the light of man. Man is a fleshy vehicle by which his immortal spirit learns the lessons appointed by Yahweh to be necessary for each of us. Necessary to be learned for the good of the Universe. Yahushua (Jesus) brought into being the life of each of us, man.

Matthew 23:9 (Which sheds clarifying light.)

And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Hebrews 12:9 

Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

How are we to understand these expressions? Yahweh (the LORD) is your Father, who is found in heaven. More commonly than not, we each know who the male parent of our flesh is. An off-spring never has more than one male participant contributing to his physical composition. Hebrews12:9 strongly supports the conviction that the spiritual component of mankind’s mortal nature has been fathered by none other than Yahweh (the LORD) our Heavenly Father. Keep this in mind as you go through the verses below. I am aware that the term father can be applied in the place of originator, creator, founder or author. Pointing out this connection between Yahweh and man is shocking to some and even heretical to others. May Yahweh open your mind. HalleluYah!

John 17:3

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God (Elohim – Yahweh and the members of his family), and Jesus Christ (Yahushua the Messiah), whom thou hast sent.

So we should understand that it is possible and indeed necessary for each of us to come to a knowledge of Yahweh the Almighty Heavenly Father and his only mortal off-spring, Yahushua (Jesus), the messiah who was the personage that led the Israelites out of land of Egypt. The mystery of Yahweh’s plan for mankind’s salvation seems to be recorded in the history of the Israelites. I hope to explore this subject at another time for my own edification.

.

Genesis 1:2
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God (Elohim, Yahweh’s family) moved upon the face of the waters.

I interpret this to say that there is the planet Earth which is covered with water. No land has yet surfaced from under the water which is global. Darkness abounds all around the planet. No sun, no moon, no stars, no light from any source. Human science is hard pressed to accept such a claim or imagine such a beginning.

Genesis 6:3
And the LORD (Yahweh) said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

Yahweh says that man is also flesh, accepting or referring to man having a spirit like unto himself, Yahweh the Almighty Father. Yahweh’s spirit can strive with man which means that he is able to seek to influence, not compel men. It is suggested that the flesh has a large or strong influence over mankind. We surely know this to be true. Herein, lays the fertile ground for developing or experiencing trials which teach. The Sons of Yahweh must demonstrate unto themselves their willingness to be obedient in all things.

Genesis 41:8
And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.

There are religious teachers who demand you accept the definition of the word spirit to be simply, “ breath”. I challenge anyone or everyone to replace spirit with breath throughout the bible, should you like to see how silly that claim really is. The word, “spirit” per my understanding can be an allegory. I do believe in spiritual bodies which are a subject in and of its self. I want to do a writing about this at a later time. Suffice to say, we have the potential to be like Yahushua, who is like Yahweh. This statement is a biblical teaching. Therefore we will retain our spiritual component, can anyone seriously argue that Pharaoh’s trouble spirit was simple some difficulty with his breath. No, our spirit is our source of understanding or comprehension of the true reality which is beyond the distracted consciousness of the fleshy self. We should train ourselves to listen and trust our spiritual selves. If we allow the Spirit of Yahweh influence our choices, how much happier we would be. Our destination or potential is to be a joint heir with Yahushua (Jesus) in the Kingdom of Yahweh. We look forward to serving according to the will of Yahweh the Father and Yahushua the messiah. It’s discouraging sometime when I am made aware of my own pettiness and failed priorities. HalleluYah for his tender lovingkindness.

Genesis 41:38
And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?

Pharaoh had an understanding or acceptance of an individual being able to have in residence the Spirit of God (Elohim}within themselves. The ancients in this way enjoyed greater understanding than many who live in this age of scientific advances. Many deny even the existence of the spirit component of man’s composite makeup. What a sad state of affairs this is!

Genesis 45:27
And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived:

Was his breath revived? Of course not, but that unique component of each of Yahweh’s children, the spirit. The spirit has never been breath and cannot rightly be described as such. I am pleased that there are a good number of us who fail to embrace deceptive heresy. Remember it is very important to understand our natures and the nature of Yahweh to the degree possible while in these clay vehicles or tabernacles of flesh and bones. We must be patient and confident that Yahweh will enlighten us as we become sufficiently humble and able to receive great truth.

Exodus 6:9
And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.

The spirit can be troubled, have anguish and perceive cruel bondage. Wow, so the spirit is self aware. The spirit seems to play a major role in makeup of human nature. What returns to Yahweh (God) who gave it to the mortal nature of all men? The spirit! Exactly, because it only returns to the presences of Yahweh (God). That does not in any way mean that we go to heaven to reside at the hour of our death. It does not mean our spirit will not be present on earth at the second coming of the messiah. An explanation of these mysteries will be sought after at another time.  

Exodus 28:3
And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.

No matter which authorized entity or entities are in the service of Yahweh our Holy Father, it is as if he, our Heavenly Father accomplished the very deed. Our Heavenly Father uses many entities to accomplish his purposes. The bible identifies Yahushua the messiah as the major personage in regards to directing, commanding, counseling or intervening in the affairs of not only Israel but all mankind. In the case of Yahushua, Yahweh’s name was place within him. Yahweh and Yahushua are separate entities but share a oneness of purpose. A unity that leads the world to believe they are apart of a trinity which is admittedly incomprehensible. I resist the temptation to discuss this subject until another time. My hope or goal is to clarify what a spirit is, as it pertains to man’s being . More precisely, demonstrate that the bible leaves little question as to the importance, value and common nature of the spirit of man and its link to eternity. 

Exodus 31:3
And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

In the New Testament of the bible we may be referring to what is termed the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit. It appears to me that this spirit of Yahweh is a quantity of Yahweh’s personal influence. There is a worthiness associate with the distribution of Yahweh’s (God’s} spirit. Without his Spirit of influence there would not be any progress or light of understanding among men.

Exodus 35:21
And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the LORD’s offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy garments.

Here the spirit is being mentioned as an integrated part of an individuals whole. How their willingness of spirit brought about action. Does breath enjoy consciousness or any degree of willingness? Please, give me a break! How I hate the doctrine of the sleeping soul.

Exodus 35:31
And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;

The last four verses illustrate to me that Yahweh(God) influences men, which motivates, touches their minds and emotions in such away as to causes the positive and desired results, which serve Yahweh’s purposes. Yahweh draws us to him or allows us to flounder in deprived conditions. Does this not shout out loudly about some cause for these happenings. Remember, Yahweh (God) is declared to be fair, righteous and above unjustness. Preexistence, prejudgment of choices, made in our past before this earthly estate began. This reasoning alone, to date, satisfies my observance of the affairs of men. Not fully, but a better start than most who accept there blessed estate or circumstance, as they perceive it, above their fellows without question or concern. Truth seekers hunger with an appetite that is not easily satisfied. Such an appetite certainly should stave off boredom that too many complain of having.

Leviticus 20:27
A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.

Having a familiar breath, bad breath, shall be put to death. No, or course not! More than one spirit can occupy the human body. Satan and his angels are non-in-bodied spirits. Remember the legion of demons that were removed from one individual and put in a herd of swine. Yahweh places a stiff penalty on a person who allows evil spirits to take up residence in our bodies. Our bodies are to be a temple where Yahweh and Yahushua can visit and reside in a way that is not understood. I don’t imagine a spirit entity can be in more than one place at a time. The spirit, evil or righteous have powers not understood but are made manifest at the pleasure of Yahweh. Remember, the body without the spirit is dead. I can testify to the fact that the spirit can experience what seems to be external experiences as if it were separated from the body. It is unclear how this can take place. Yahweh and Yahushua are able to reside with unlimited host of individuals. We would be pleased to understand fully but let us rejoice in whatever Yahweh is pleased to share. Surely we will have much more understanding after having journing through the temptations of this sphere of existence. All mankind has been purchased with the blood of Yahushua the messiah. HalleluYah!

Numbers 5:14
And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:

Here we speak of a spirit in the terms of a emotion which is but a component of a sentient being.

An abstract reference pertaining to feeling and not the spiritual component but about it’s behavior.

Numbers 5:30
Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law.

Same as above.

Numbers 11:17
And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone.

Here we have a quantity of influence that was placed upon Moses by Yahweh. This puts me in mind of the sun and it’s warming rays. The rays touch many at the same time. The Holy Spirit selectively does the same thing. Is this quanty of Yahweh’s influence an operational power of the personal being of Yahweh? Is it possible, that when Yahweh touches you with this influence, you become accountable with less defence for wrong choices.

Numbers 11:25
And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.

Once again, the spiritual influence was shared. Many suggest that the spirit or Holy Spirit is a separate member or entity of the Godhead. This is not clear to me but we see that Yahweh or his son Yahushua with his name in him is able to share the spirit that was present with Moses. This spirit or power can be divided and shared. I find this interesting but am unable to draw a conclusion about this as of yet. But, I am leaning toward the intimate influence and intervention of the Holy Father, Yahweh. Is this perhaps why there is such serioness affence associated with denying the Holy Ghost. Some say that it is difficult to deny the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit. Perhaps it is, then wouldn’t it mean that receiving the influence or power from Yahweh is equally difficult?

Numbers 11:26
But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp.

Here again, spirit seems to be a quantity of a powerful influence. This influence appears to link those who have it rest upon them to be in harmony with Yahweh’s will. This spirit can come and go in an individuals life. I am particularly thinking of the first king of Israel, King Saul.

Numbers 11:29
And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD’S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!

Here we have Moses saying that he would be pleased if all Yahweh’s people should have Yahweh’s

Spirit placed upon them. In each case of the Spirit ( Yahweh’s influence) being place upon someone, the Spirit is pointing to have come from him, not some other individual or entity.

Numbers 14:24
But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

The spirit of obedience, instead of the spirit of lawlessness. Failing to love Yahweh appropriately is a continued afflection among the children of men.

Numbers 24:2
And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the spirit of God came upon him.

Yahweh chooses to share the light of his influence (spirit) so Balaam would understanding.. This Prophet did not always have the spirit or it would not have been necessary to come upon him. We may not always have Yahweh’s spirit as well. Worthiness and Yahweh’s purpose are elements that come into play.

Numbers 27:18
And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;

Here Yahweh {actually Yahushua} says to appoint Joshua because he has the spirit which is Yahweh the Eternal Heavenly Father’s personal influence. Let me mention here that I have reason to understand that the name given to Moses’ general was the name that the Messiah was

to be known by as he walk among men. Names are important and unfortunately have been changed for no good purpose by the influence of the adversary. Considerable effort is now required to re-establish the correct names. I am encouraged in believing that this will take place and is taking place even now. It is written that anyone who calls upon the name of Yahweh, will be saved. Remember, Yahweh wants you to call upon him and share his name and his works among men.

Exodus 35:21
And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the LORD’s offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy garments.

Here the spirit is being mentioned as an integrated part of an individuals whole. How their willingness of spirit brought about action. Does breath enjoy consciousness or any degree of willingness? Please, give me a break! How I hate the doctrine of the sleeping soul.

Exodus 35:31
And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;

The last four verses illustrate to me that Yahweh(God) influences men, which motivates, touches their minds and emotions in such away as to causes the positive and desired results, which serve Yahweh’s purposes. Yahweh draws us to him or allows us to flounder in deprived conditions. Does this not shout out loudly about some cause for these happenings. Remember, Yahweh (God) is declared to be fair, righteous and above unjustness. Preexistence, prejudgment of choices, made in our past before this earthly estate began. This reasoning alone, to date, satisfies my observance of the affairs of men. Not fully, but a better start than most who accept there blessed estate or circumstance, as they perceive it, above their fellows without question or concern. Truth seekers hunger with an appetite that is not easily satisfied. Such an appetite certainly should stave off boredom that too many complain of having.

Leviticus 20:27
A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.

Having a familiar breath, bad breath, shall be put to death. No, or course not! More than one spirit can occupy the human body. Satan and his angels are non-in-bodied spirits. Remember the legion of demons that were removed from one individual and put in a herd of swine. Yahweh places a stiff penalty on a person who allows evil spirits to take up residence in our bodies. Our bodies are to be a temple where Yahweh and Yahushua can visit and reside in a way that is not understood. I don’t imagine a spirit entity can be in more than one place at a time. The spirit, evil or righteous have powers not understood but are made manifest at the pleasure of Yahweh. Remember, the body without the spirit is dead. I can testify to the fact that the spirit can experience what seems to be external experiences as if it were separated from the body. It is unclear how this can take place. Yahweh and Yahushua are able to reside with unlimited host of individuals. We would be pleased to understand fully but let us rejoice in whatever Yahweh is pleased to share. Surely we will have much more understanding after having journing through the temptations of this sphere of existence. All mankind has been purchased with the blood of Yahushua the messiah. HalleluYah!

Numbers 5:14
And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:

Here we speak of a spirit in the terms of a emotion which is but a component of a sentient being.

An abstract reference pertaining to feeling and not the spiritual component but about it’s behavior.

Numbers 5:30
Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law.

Same as above.

Numbers 11:17
And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone.

Here we have a quantity of influence that was placed upon Moses by Yahweh. This puts me in mind of the sun and it’s warming rays. The rays touch many at the same time. The Holy Spirit selectively does the same thing. Is this quanty of Yahweh’s influence an operational power of the personal being of Yahweh? Is it possible, that when Yahweh touches you with this influence, you become accountable with less defence for wrong choices.

Numbers 11:25
And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.

Deuteronomy 2:30
But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day.

How did Yahweh our Elohim cause the spirit of King Sihon to harden? Yahweh would not control someone like a puppet. He would not force or violate his agency. Influencing the right combination of circumstances that would cause the heart hardening would be one way. Recall the way in which Yahweh brought about having Joseph placed in Egypt. So as, to be able to benefit Jacob his father and his family. I have witnessed Yahweh’s marvelous influence in lives of today. Yahweh has not changed. Yahweh knows your name and mine, even all of mankind. Yahweh sinfluences things far in advance of one’s needs and it appears at just the right moment. One can only marvel at how busy he is, even with the much help he employs.

Deuteronomy 34:9
And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses.

Moses influenced the resting of the spirit by the laying on of hands and prayer. Yahweh heard and complied for the benefit of Israel and his divine purposes. Nothing in my opinion takes place on this orb without divine consent, and fulfilling Yahweh’s purposes.

Joshua 5:1
And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, which were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites, which were by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were passed over, that their heart melted, neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the children of Israel.

Here again the spirit spoken of has to do with feeling or emotion of the people mentioned. They were in a state of fear, hopelessness, dread because they had heard of the supernatural occurrences that was following the children of Israel because of the power of their Elohim (God).

Who can stand before such a mighty Elohim (God)?

Judges 3:10
And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD delivered Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed against Chushanrishathaim.

We learned earlier that when men walked with Yahweh’s spirit and continued in such a walk, they were know as the sons of God(Yahweh). Who can succeed against the sons of Yahweh? Are not all things possible for Yahweh’s obedient ones?

Judges 6:34
But the Spirit of the LORD came upon Gideon, and he blew a trumpet; and Abiezer was gathered after him.

Judges 9:23
Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech:

We are talking about emotions or feelings. Yahweh is intimately involve with his children. It is said that Elohim is a participant in the affairs of men.

Judges 11:29
Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah, and he passed over Gilead, and Manasseh, and passed over Mizpeh of Gilead, and from Mizpeh of Gilead he passed over unto the children of Ammon.

The Spirit of Yahweh is an advantage and benefactor for those who receive it. Of course, Yahweh brings about purposes while spreading his spirit according to his pleasure. He is able influence without being a respector of persons or impair one’s agency. HalleluYah!

Judges 13:25
And the Spirit of the LORD began to move him at times in the camp of Dan between Zorah and Eshtaol.

The Spirit of Yahweh move Samson at times. I haven’t yet discovered a separate entity referred to as the Spirit of Yahweh (God). I am thinking that such an additional personage should be mentioned also in the Tanakh (Old Testament). No mention of the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit so far among the Tankh scriptures. I am wanting to see a common thread of truth running from the old to the new in regards to the spirit of Yahweh and the way it operates among men.

Judges 14:6
And the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done.

Yahweh’s influence was a source of great strength. Samson overcame a young lion with his bare hands. 

Judges 14:19
And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he went down to Ashkelon, and slew thirty men of them, and took their spoil, and gave change of garments unto them which expounded the riddle. And his anger was kindled, and he went up to his father’s house.

I ash myself, did Samson understand that the Spirit of Yahweh was operating upon his person? 

Judges 15:14
And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him: and the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands loosed from off his hands.

It is obvious that the Spirit of Yahweh was not continually present with Samson. Samson was favored by Yahweh from time to time.  

Judges 15:19
But God clave an hollow place that was in the jaw, and there came water thereout; and when he had drunk, his spirit came again, and he revived: wherefore he called the name thereof Enhakkore, which is in Lehi unto this day. 

This indicates to me that the spirit of a person is affected by the natural strength of the body, the mortal flesh. When the body is weak, the spirit likewise is weak. Destroy the body, the spirit leaves its host.

1 Samuel 1:15
And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD. 

1 Samuel 10:6
And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man. 

Here we are told that the when the spirit of Yahweh is upon or with someone, that person becomes a different person in so far as they behave differently. A change may take place but does not necessarily make a permanent change. 

1 Samuel 10:10
And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God (Elohim) came upon him, and he prophesied among them.

Such is the operation of the Holy Spirit of Elohim. In the Old Testiment we find that the Spirit of God (Elohim) is mentioned instead of the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost. It is obvious to me that these expressions refer to the same intervening and personality altering influencing power immanating from Elohim.  

1 Samuel 11:6
And the Spirit of God came upon Saul when he heard those tidings, and his anger was kindled greatly.

The expression,”came upon” says to me that the Spirit of God was an intermittent influence for some. Knowing the story of Saul and David, we sadly acknowledge the ability to fall, even after having received the Holy Spirit or Spritit of God (Elohim).We are also pleased to realize that David received the forgiveness of Yahweh. When Yahweh forgives, he forgets but men more commonly never forget. HalleluYah!  

1 Samuel 16:13
Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.

The verse said that the Spirit of Yahweh came upon David FROM THAT DAY FORWARD.I don’t believe we are justified is saying that David had the Spirit of Yahweh continously but enjoyed the influencing frequently during his life. 

1 Samuel 16:14
But the Spirit of the LORD (Yahweh) departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD (Yahweh) troubled him.

This verse shows us that a man can lose the prescious guideance of the Spirit of Yahweh. Also, let us notice that Yahweh is given acknowledgment in regards to being in total control, even those things referred to as evil. Satan cannot do anything without Yahweh’s permission. Yes, not anything at all. 

1 Samuel 16:15
And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.

An evil spirit is an expression for a state of unhappiness. This is a state that people get into when they are doing things outside of Yahweh’s commandments. Yahweh gives to us according to our thoughts and deeds. We are not able to discern by our powers of observation Yahweh’s justice. As an example, recall the story of Job. Being victorous over trials of body and mind leads to greater joy in the after life. Imagine the crippling, painfully diseased body and an emotionally tormented existanced without perceived love. Then, restored to a incorruptable, perfect state of being with loving beings all around you. Yahweh seeks to bring about the immortality of all mankind and eternal life of many. HalleluYah! 

1 Samuel 16:16
Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well. 

This verse could be describing a troubled conscience or indeed, a evil spirit which is an assistant of Satan. All things are calculated for man’s benefit and also the universe as a whole.

1 Samuel 16:23
And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him. 

Yahweh is given credit for all things, the problem and the solution. Let us never try to reason in such a way about Yahweh’s doings that we should become angry at Yahweh. People some times are so tormented about disappointments and looses in this mortal sphere of existance that they rebell and shake their fists toward the heavens. Repent, always love and praise Yahweh. We are suppose to be happy for all those who have moved from this mortal sphere of existance to the next plane. This existance is for correction. Let us be respectful sons and daughters of the most high Elohim, Yahweh our Heavenly Father. HalleluYah!

1 Samuel 18:10
And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul’s hand.

If this is a physical condition that Saul is suffering from and not a demon, it is all the same because it is sent of Yahweh. Yahweh cannot be accused of committing evil against man without cause. 

I have heard military men discuss the subject of,”the end justifies the means.” I found myself alarmed by such arguments. To think that someone would commit evil acts in order to accomplish an end goal that was good, simple failed to be appropriate in my mind. I am convinced tha Yahweh does not even operate in this manner. Do you have some thoughts you would like to share on this issue? 

1 Samuel 19:9
And the evil spirit from the LORD was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.

We are confident that the evil spirit from Yahweh does not bear good fruit for the person who has the evil spirit, save it be to cause or bring about repentance. The evil spirit from Yahweh is punishment and who wants such a thing. 

1 Samuel 19:20
And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.

When I read of this kind of manifestation, I marvel and desire that we should enjoy such happenings in our present time.
1 Samuel 19:23
And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he came to Naioth in Ramah.

This verse tells us about the revisiting of the Spirit of Elohim to King Saul. As you know, Saul had been troubled often by an evil spirit from Yahweh. Isn’t interesting how Yahweh continually strives to help each of us with the patience of his inormace love for us. 

1 Samuel 28:7
Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor.

Sorcerers or necormancers, who professed to call up the dead to answer questions, were said to have a “familiar spirit” (Deut. 18:11; 2 Kings 21:6; 2 Chr. 33:6; Lev. 19:31; 20:6; Isa. 8:19; 29:4).

Such a person was called by the Hebrews an ‘ob, which properly means a bottle; for sorcerers were regarded as vessels containing the inspiring demon. This Hebrew word was equivalent to the pytho of the Greeks, and was used to denote both the person and the spirit which possessed him (Lev. 20:27; 1 Sam. 28:8; compare Acts 16:16).

The word “familiar” is from the Latin familiaris, meaning a “household servant,” and was intended to express the idea that sorcerers had spirits as their servants ready to obey their commands.

1 Samuel 28:8
And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee.

Normally the dead do not communicate with the living. Usually, demons pretend to be the dead.Yahweh can of course make exceptions. 

1 Samuel 30:12
And they gave him a piece of a cake of figs, and two clusters of raisins: and when he had eaten, his spirit came again to him: for he had eaten no bread, nor drunk any water, three days and three nights.

Not unlike what is expressed in 23rdPsalems, “he restoreth my soul.” Our soul or spirit is considered the primary part of our composite makeup or being. 

2 Samuel 23:2
The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.

David had a clear understanding of the operation of the Spirit of Yahweh. HalleluYah! 

I have more to add in order to complete the effort.

What Might We Become?

March 12th, 2011

 

Vital Health Science Breakthrough of Our Life Time!

 

It’s March the 12th 2011 and a bit windy but the Sun is shining and the temperature is comfortable, like early spring. I praise Yahweh, joy abounds in my heart as I consider his creation and his loving kindness. April 2 will be my 72nd birthday and I praise Yahweh for being so patient with me. Having some small appreciation as to the complexity of energy, matter, gravity and time. Can you begin to imagine an existence without time. I confess, I really can’t. Even without this little bit of knowledge, I would find creation ever so awesome. I hope you enjoy the same pleasure.

It’s wonderful to have escaped from the clutches of the traditions of our more recent parents and culture. I would have, that I should have, been more worthy of greater light, earlier. Yet, I know that Yahweh’s wisdom for me is above my understanding. I rest with faith in his purpose for my life. I feel that I haven’t been a very good steward of my time among the mortals. I try not to pass judgment. We are understood, even known by name, HalleluYah. We are known and there has been a judgment passed and an execution of that judgment. We function under this judgment and achieve what we will. Yahweh is fair, not a respecter of persons. Then, why is ther such diverse and large differences between each of our circumstances? Herein, lays a mystery for many of us. Yahweh does not need to discover where we should be placed, how we will behave, or if we can be trusted in exercising the work of expanding the Universe. We are of such importance to him that he affords us this experience between mortal life and the resurrection. All of this is allowed so we would have no doubt in regards to Yahushua’s (J-sus’) judgment of us. It would appear to me that we, mankind or spirits, Yahweh’s children, needed to be taught by being humbled, weaken and put in a position or sphere of existence which would bring home our total dependance on Yahweh and the need for a oneness of unity through obedience. Establish our willingness, yes our determination to be obedient in safe guarding the order of the universe. After all, we are his spirit children. Do we not all have the same Father, the Father of all spirits? So, it is written.

Men have labored under the influence of Satan ever since the garden of Eden, seeking to destroy Yahweh’s (G-d’s) creation. Man’s potential is such that the Universe, and it’s many members long for the accomplishment of that great purpose. Each of us will realize the purpose for which this sphere of existence has been provide. Depending on your perspective, it is unfortunate or fortunate, in so far, as there will be different rewards for having put on this tabernacle of flesh. It is written that the resurrection of mankind will receive glory which is likened to the glory of the Sun for some, the glory of the Moon for others and the glory of the Stars for a host of us. The sons of perdition and their reward is not yet made clear to me. All mankind will be resurrected with incorruptible bodies. This is of some comfort to me. It is written that every tongue will confess and ever knee will bend before Yahushua. This suggests to me that we will all arrive at a state of reconciliation with Yahweh.

Yahweh is a self existent one. This is what Yahweh’s name means. Have you ever known a Father without there haven been a Mother? A subject for another time

If you are a reader of scripture from the bible, then you may remember, Yahushua (J-sus) said that he was going to his Father, and our Father, his Elohim (G-d) and our Elohim. It is written that Yahweh is the Father of all spirits. Yahushua also said that Yahweh his Father was greater than himself and that he performed only Yahweh’s will, not his own. Yahushua claims that he received or inherited everything that was the Father’s. So, it is understood by some, that Yahushua has become like his Father. Having taken on the Father’s name, nature, his attributes, his purpose, yes, even a oneness of complete unity. Paul, the apostle said that whenYahushua returns, the believers will be like him. But, he acknowledges, we do not know what we shall be. If Yahushua is one with Yahweh and we are like Yahushua’s and also one in unity with him and therefore, one with Yahweh, what more could anyone hope for? Now this may seem to be heresy but this is according to scripture. In times past, heresy was punish by the pains of death. Can you believe the reason they killed Yahushua (J-sus) our Messiah. Yahweh vocalized his Father, Yahweh’s name which was considered blasphemous and worthy of death. Such has been the religious tyranny of the theocracys.

Honestly, ever single thing in our lives is provided by Yahweh our Eternal Heavenly Father.. Yahweh sustains each and every breath, he gives us that which will serve our greatest good. When you look around and observe the lives of our fellow beings, you may find it difficult, even impossible to imagine that all the imagined misfortune that you see could possibly serve any good purpose. Such observations surely provokes questions. It is also written that, “Anyone who lacks wisdom, let him ask of Yahweh who gives liberally and punishes not for asking.” His messenger or angel may come in the form of a supernatural entity, friend, preacher or a stranger. Then again, your bible may provide the answer when prayerfully read. Stay alert, be open and anticipating receiving your prayerful request.

It has been written that Yahweh’s purpose is to bring about the immortality and eternal life of mankind. I certainly believe this without any reservation. The meaning and therefore description of immortal life and eternal life needs to be explained and understood. I am not moved to get into this particular subject at this time, perhaps another time, should it be Yahweh’s will.

Yahweh is in control and there has never been a time when he was not in control. The fall of man through Adam and Eve was not a failure for Yahweh, heaven forbid, all thing are pre-ordained and known. Don’t be angry with Adam and Eve, they fulfilled Yahweh’s purpose. Their agency was not impaired in bring about Yahweh’s purpose. Yes, no surprises for Yahweh. Satan is an enthusiastic participant in the Father’s plan for bring about human kinds potential. You don’t think for a minute that he wasn’t a known and necessary part of man’s needed experience in this sphere of existence?

I hope this has been interesting. I realize that my ability with the written word is weak and labored.

Prayerfully I leave this in the name of Yahushua and in the service of Yahweh. Salvation is not of the Law, but it is not done away with, nor can it be as long as the earth stands without it’s change. Salvation comes by the gift of Yahweh’s only mortal Son, Yahushua. I testify that he lives and works even now for our good, HalleluYah.

Sons of Yahweh (God)

February 5th, 2011

 Vital Health Science Breakthrough of Our Life Time!

 

John 17:3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God (Elohim), and Jesus Christ (Yahushua the Messiah), whom thou hast sent.

Who are the sons of God(Elohim) that is mention below eleven time in the Bible? In what sense are they the sons of God(Elohim)? Let us examine each verse carefully together. I believe the Bible will interpret its self.

Genesis 6:2
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

These sons of God( Elohim ) could have relationship with woman. Because the daughters of men are mentioned, in no way, declares that the sons of God(Elohim) are other than men.

     

Genesis 6:4
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

The sons of God(Elohim) off-spring are declared to be men. I do not believe it would be correct to read that their off-spring where giants. They where wise with correct knowledge or superior understanding compared to the norm of that time.

Job 1:6
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD (Yahweh), and Satan came also among them.

My take on this verse is the following. On the Sabbath the followers of Yahweh(God) gathered to

worship and fellowship together. This gathering took place on the earth. I draw that conclusion because of the question that Yahweh(God) put to Satan. Then Satan answered the LORD(Yahweh), and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. This may be a leap, but, that’s the way I see it.

Job 2:1
Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD(Yahweh), and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD(Yahweh).

Nothing new here. We are made aware that this gathering of the sons of God(Yahweh) takes place frequently. It strongly suggests the Sabbath gathering.

Job 38:7
When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

This is an interesting chapter and verse. We are being directed to a time during creation. We are still talking about the sons of Yahweh(God). This verse speak clearly to me of the preexistence of

a component of humankind. Morning Stars sang is another way of say the earlier sons of Yahweh(God), a group begotten before the host of other sons. The Father, Son relationship, in type, is unclear here but it is establish without question.

John 1:12
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the
sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

The Bible identifies the sons of Yahweh(God). The Bible remove private interpretation. Halleluyah! I strongly suspect that we shall discovery additional senses by which we are the sons of Yahweh(God). I take notice of the phrase, “gave he power to become”. This tells me that there is a process by which men may become like Yahweh and therefore Sons. Do not sons and daugthers have the potential to become like their parents? Belief is part of the process, as well as knowing and believing on his name. What is his name? Yahweh is his name! This truth has been mostly removed from the sacred scriptures, particularly the Bible.

Romans 8:14
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the
sons of God.

Why are some led by the Spirit of Yahweh(God) and there are many that are not? I should seek to let the Bible answer this question. However, once again we are told who the sons of Yahweh(God) are. By the way, I hope no one would substitute breath for spirit, especially here. When someone is deceived by Satan, he doesn’t know it unless Yahweh reveals it to them. I am confident that many are being buffeted because of choices made prior to becoming mortal. I am unhappy about so many of us being unaware or even concerned about the evidence of this fact. Does anyone have a better explanation for the unequal circumstances we observe in the mortal existence of our fellow humankind?

Romans 8:19
For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

The sons of Yahweh(God) have a mighty work and the living universe awaits their maturity. This seems to me to promise a eternal adventure beyond our comprehension. This promise should excite the natures of the sons of Yahweh with the expectation of joy beyond measure because of the opportunity to be of such universal service.

Philippians 2:15
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

The sons of Yahweh(God) are in the world among men. As we learned earlier, they were during the foundation of this world also. It is a sure challenge to be blameless and harmless, let alone, a shining light among men. Let us take courage and continually strive to meet the challenge.

1 John 3:1
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

What are we to understand about men being called sons of God? And, men who are referred to as being of the world and not knowing Yahweh(God)? These are mysteries that surely the scriptures will make clear to the sons of Yahweh. From what I have observed, light may not shine for the men of the world during mortality. This surely has to do with teaching the lessons deemed necessary for the good of the entire universe and all the creation of Yahweh.

1 John 3:2
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

The believing members of the body of Yahushua(Jesus) are the sons of Yahweh(God). We look forward to being like Yahushua(Jesus) in all ways even as he is like the Father(Yahweh). We should all be one. The natural man or flesh constantly impede the progress we desire. Let us be on constant guard that we may overcome such evil.

In conclusion, I would suggest that the sons of Yahweh(God) are mortal men and they existed before the foundation of the planet earth in another state of being.. Created as entities of unknown composition and had both self awareness and awareness of their appointed future sphere of continued existence. Let us desire the eventual reconciliation for all of humankind. It is true that I as of yet lack a comprehensive understanding of the lake of fire. This is of interest, yet it must wait to be fully explored at another time.

 

I personally rest in the thought that Yahweh will do the very best in our behalf and we will agree with his  judgment through the person of Yahushua, the messiah.

Yahshua (Jesus), is Yahweh (the LORD) of the Old Testament ?

August 22nd, 2010

Vital Health Science Breakthrough of Our Life Time!

 

In my heart, I pray our Heavenly Father will influence all who read this article to benefit from it’s content. As a brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and child of the living Elohim (G-D), grace and peace be to each of you. I attempt to argue for truth by leaning directly upon the Holy Scriptures. I subscribe to the following.

2 Thessalonians 2:13
But we are bound to give thanks alway to Elohim (G-D) for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because Elohim (G-D) hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

John 5:37 (KJV)

And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

What an interesting statement for us to contemplate when considering this information in the light of our reading of the Old Testament. We read that people did hear Yahweh’s (God’s) voice and had seen his shape! We can be sure that Yahshua (Jesus) was not mistaken because he spoke with certainty. As a matter of fact, I can’t recall of a single instance when Yahshua (Jesus) spoke in an uncertain manner. Let us consider a plausible explanation for Yahshua (Jesus) very clear statement.

But first, lets examine some of the places in the Old Testament where Yahweh (the Lord) was being heard, observed and engaged in a person to person communication.

The incidents of close contact with the Elohim ( God ) of ancient Israel was spoken of often. Broadcasting abroad these many unusual happenings caused great fear to come upon the peoples of the other nations. I’m sure there was also a interest in knowing more about this particular Elohim (God ) of Israel, Yahweh, which was so active in the lives of the Israelite people.

It is very easy to digress. I have assembled a number of Old Testament verses to support the claim that Elohim (God) of Israel was heard and also seen by many.

Genesis 32:30 (KJV)

So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, “It is because I saw (Elohim)God face to face, and yet my life was spared.”

Genesis 33:11 (KJV)

And (Yahweh) the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.

Exodus 24:11 (KJV)

But (Elohim)God did not raise his hand against these leaders of the Israelites; they saw (Elohim) God, and they ate and drank.

Numbers 11:24 (KJV)

And (Yahweh) the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him (Moses), and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.

John 1:18 (KJV)

No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

All translation are of value in my opinion when studying and striving to realize what our Heavenly Father may desire to reveal to us through his Holy Spirit. I am going to present a number of other bible versions for your examination. I would that we were all worthy of intimate revelation such that was experienced by our ancient fathers. Let us be obedient to Yahweh’s commandments in order to manifest our love for him.

John 1:18 (NIV)

No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.

I want to emphasize what seem of particular interest to me in this verse. God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side. This says to me that Yahshua ( Jesus ) is the only God that men have had to do with. All power, judgment and responsible has been placed with him regarding this creation which of course includes us humans. Yahshua (Jesus) has told us that his God is our God and his Father is our Father. I believe this.

John 20:17 (KJV)
Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

We should explore or want to understand in what way his Father is our Father and his God is our God. Let us continue with more translations of John 1:18 and see just what may be discovered.

John 1:18 (NAS)

No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.

This version clearly declares Jesus’ divinity without question. Yet, he is separate from God the Father though he be ever so close to the Father. Being in the bosom suggests a intimate relationship to me.

John 1:18 (The Message)

No one has ever seen God, not so much as a glimpse. This one-of-a-kind God-Expression, who exists at the very heart of the Father, has made him plain as day.

John 1:18 (Amplified Bible)

No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

I like this version because it explains in more detail and therefore in more comprehensible terms. I do hope you will not be impatient at a few more versions.

John 1:18 (Contemporary English Version)

No one has ever seen God. The only Son, who is truly God and is closest to the Father, has shown us what God is like.

John 1:18 (Darby Translation)

No one has seen God at any time; the only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, *he* hath declared [him].

John 1:18 (New International Reader’s Version)

18 No one has ever seen God. But God, the one and only Son, is at the Father’s side. He has shown us what God is like.

John 1:18 (Today’s New International Version)

No one has ever seen God, but the one and only [Son], who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

There are yet quite a number of other English translations to reference but the one’s available to me at this time contribute little differences. I hope you have found these worth your time. There has been in relatively resent times the claim of having seen and heard both the Heavenly Father and his only-begotten Son at the same time. After having read John 1:18 from these many bible versions, what would most Christians believe about this claim? False, of course! No wonder such a person would reap the wrath of Yahweh (the LORD, GOD). Consider this verse.

Deuteronomy 18:20 (KJV)

But the prophet, which shall presume to speaka word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

A person guilty of this wickedness has no love, belief or fear of Elohim (GOD). The motive for such behavior is self interest. Penalty for such a person or persons is certain.

Numbers 14:14 (KJV)

And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land: for they have heard that thou (Yahweh) LORD art among this people, that thou (Yahweh) LORD art seen face to face, and that thy cloud standeth over them, and that thou goest before them, by day time in a pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night.

Deuteronomy 4:9-10 (KJV)

9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons;

10 Specially the day that thou stoodest before (Yahweh) the LORD thy God in Horeb, when (Yahweh) the LORD said unto me (Moses), Gather me (Yahweh) the people together, and I (Yahweh) will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me (Yahweh) all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.

Deuteronomy 4:12 (KJV)

And (Yahweh) the LORD spake unto you (the people) out of the midst of the fire: ye (the people) heard the voice of the words (of Yahweh), but saw no similitude (no shape or form); only ye heard a voice.

Deuteronomy 4:33 (KJV)

Did ever people hear the voice of (Yahweh) God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?

Deuteronomy 5:24-26 (KJV)

24 And ye said, Behold, (Yahweh)the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard (Yahweh)his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that (Elohim) God doth talk with man, and he (Yahweh) liveth.

25 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of (Yahweh)the LORD our God any more, then we shall die.

26 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of (Yahweh)the living (Elohim) God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?

Deuteronomy 18:16 (KJV)

According to all that thou (the people) desiredst of (Yahweh) the LORD thy (Elohim) God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me (the people) not hear again the voice of (Yahweh) the LORD my (our) (Elohim) God, neither let me (the people) see this great fire any more, that I (we) die not.

Deuteronomy 23:14

For (Yahweh) the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee.

Most Christians are Commandment Breakers

January 26th, 2010

Vital Health Science Breakthrough of Our Life Time!

 

The vast majority of Christians world wide, are guilty of being commandment breakers!

You believe in God. You have the desire to do what is right. You accept Jesus Christ as your savior, your King, and head of your church. God is the head of your family through Jesus, his holy lamb. You do well. So, is it possible for you, to tolerate anyone telling you, that you are a commandment breaker? If, it were possible, would you want to know?

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.  James 2:10

And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:  Mark 13:5

You are in charge of your gift of agency. Your Heavenly Father has preserved that gift. So that, you might act wisely, exercising correct judgment in behalf of your eternal soul. You know that it is written in the Bible, that when you break one commandment, you are as guilt as if you broke them all. Therefore, the accountability to God for breaking anyone of his commandments is to fall into a state of condemnation.

If ye love me, keep my commandments.  John 14:15

What commandments am I speaking about? I use to say the same thing. What commandments? Hasn’t God spoken a lot? Remember what Jesus replied to Satan when he tempted Jesus about turning a rock into bread.

And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.  Luke 4:3

And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.  Luke 4:4 

I repeat, I have asked that same question, over and over again. What commandments? I inquired a number of times, of my religious leaders. I cannot recall having ever received an answer. It’s surely true? One would be a foolish person indeed, not to accept each and every word that comes from God. It is also true, that we have the responsibility to live our lives in a worthy manner. Permitting the needed consulting with the Holy Ghost for discernment. The power of discernment is so important. Especially in a world where so many are anxious to share God’s word. The messages on the same subject are often times so very different, causing confusing and frustration. It’s too easy to be deceived. I know first hand, it’s not a pleasant experience.

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.   Revelation 12:9 

Can you see why no one, would venture to answer my question? Are you familiar with the correct answer? Of course you are, because we just read it together. We must live by every word that comes from God. Such an answer seems to put us into a impossible position. Who can know all the words of God? Don’t be sad or frustrated but be happy in knowing that God only hold us accountable for what we are conscious of. We are not accused or condemned when we labor in ignorance. We will all arrive at enlightenment before the final judgment.

We often trust our religious leaders to our own eternal hurt. They have been deceived by the dragon, even as you may have been. Who can cause us to escape such wicked deception? You and I must seek God’s mercy and grace and walk daily in his light. The Preacher raises his voice in behalf of your souls happiness. Repent and escape God’s wrath. Do it now! Say in your mind and heart, Father help me, help me be all you want me to be, in the name of Jesus, I ask. If a few tears swell-up and roll down your cheeks, know that God is drawing you to himself. Amen. 

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him  John 14:21 

And I will write on the tables the words that were in the first tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in the ark. Deuteronomy 10:2 

The Ten Commandments were placed inside an enclosure. The enclosure is know as an Ark and was made of wood and embellished with precious metal and artwork. Metal rings were fixed to opposite sides. Long polls were threaded through the rings to allow the specially chosen Priests to carry it. The two stone tables on which, “The Ten Commandments,” were engraved and place inside the Ark were treated with great care and reverence. I realize at this very moment, that I want to study more closely everything associate with the Ark. This Ark had a powerful influence on the Israelite’s history. The Ark has been lost but it is believed to still exist.

The word, “commandment,” is used 167 time in the King James Bible. What does this have to do with the subject? Well, I just want to share how I understand the meaning of the word, “Commandment,” it is an authoritative order, a decree from a source of authority and power that does not often permit negotiation. Pharaoh, a King, a Government, God, Jesus, a Prophet, anyone directed by the Holy Ghost, these would be in the category of authority by which commandments are issued. This is my own personal definition.

The Ten Commandments, which God personally wrote with his own finger, on two stone tables, are the commandments that have become the most generally thought of when mentioning commandments. The commandments are valuable beyond measure.

They are perfect. If you and I would keep these commandments, we also, should find perfection. We would have a better world if our churches taught the importance and worth of knowing and obeying these commandments. You and I can’t lay the responsibility at the doors of our churches only, because the shaping of character in our children rest with the parents of the family. Placing the seeds of the commandments and examples before the eyes of our young ones would spare them so much unnecessary pain.

We simply cannot begin too early to expose our children to the correct moral code of conduct.

I can hear you say, “ We do believe in the Ten Commands.” They are included here so you may refresh you memory. Be honest with yourself. Do you keep each of these commandments? “Yes, I have kept them from early childhood,” you say. That is good. Read them thoughtfully to see if you are honestly able to answer in the affirmative once again.

Exodus 20:3-17 

3Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

5Thou 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;

6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

7Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

8Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

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

10But 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:

11For 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.

12Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

13Thou shalt not kill (murder).

 14Thou shalt not commit adultery.

 15Thou shalt not steal.

 16Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

17Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

Do you still have the same answer? Yes! Good, the Preacher is happy for you and thanks the Almighty, God of your fathers for his kindness to you.

If you however believe that the Sabbath is Sunday. Or, that it doesn’t matter which day you acknowledge as the Sabbath. Well, the Preacher will boldly tell you that you are breaking a commandment. The fourth commandment, you are breaking the fourth commandment every single week. You have a lot of company but that doesn’t, nor can it, make it right. I personally know what a shock it is to become convicted of this undeniable truth. Your Bible plainly teaches Saturday is the seventh day Sabbath. Let us reason together, and consider just what a gift, God has given to us, when he created the Sabbath for man. Be aware that the Sabbath was being observed before the Ten Commandments were given to Moses on Mt. Sinai.

And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:  Mark 2:27      

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. Genesis 2:3 

Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.  Exodus 31:13 


Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.  Exodus 31:16 


And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.  Ezekiel 20:20 

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:  Colossians 2:16   ( Did you notice the use of Sabbaths and then Sabbath days.) 

Verse Col. 2:16 above is use to argue that Christians no longer need to observe the seventh day Sabbath. Other than the weekly Sabbath, which was instituted at creation (Gen 2:3 above), there were a number of other Sabbath days. Visit you Bible and learn what I am talking about. I mention Mat 5:18-19 to refute this argument. The truth is, that no-where in the Bible, can anyone find where the seventh day, Saturday Sabbath was changed to Sunday Sabbath. I recall reading about a individual who had a standing reward of $1000 dollars offered for anyone that was able to name the chapter and verse that showed the Sabbath day being changed. The Roman Catholic Church has admitted, that it was through their authority that brought forth this change. Some time when I am more ambitious, I should like to collect information on the history behind the change. There is a verse I will pause to hunt, I imagine you will find interesting. I found the verse, I was a little surprised by at the speed you can look things up with the digital Bible using key words. The links I have placed in the article take you to www.biblegate.com ,which are a wonderful convenience and help. They have a large number of different Bible translations that greatly enhances you comprehension.

 

 

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.  Daniel 7:25

The verse above deserves greater comment than I am willing to make at this time. Weigh it carefully. 

Matthew 5:18-19 

18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Are you convinced that the Sabbath is Saturday? That day has never been lost. Read about the Israelites wander in the desert for forty years and being feed by manna dropped down from heaven. Take notice of how the Israelites were require by God to gather enough manna so they would have something to eat on the Sabbath. God would not provide the manna on the Sabbath. The word Sabbath means rest in the Hebrew language.

The Sabbath can be honored, kept holy by remembering your creator and his creation, reframing from secular labor and enjoying the family. The Sabbath is a very special day that God made and blessed for our spiritual growth and for increasing the closeness of our relationship with our Heavenly Father. No other day can or should be a substitute.

Don’t be a Sabbath day breaker and therefore a commandment breaker. There is no reason you can’t attend Sunday services with other Christians. Keep the Sabbath and teach others to do the same out of love for them. The traditions of our fathers, having been in error doesn’t compel us to continue in that error. God bless each of you and may the promise of the Holy Sabbath be ever yours.

I want to take a minute to share another few scriptures. I was lying in bed the other night while reading. I was read the works of a first-century historian by the name of Flavius Josephus. I recommend this work as being worthy of your precious time. The translator make narrative comments from time to time. He mentioned a few bible verses that delighted me. I am learning all the time and hope to until my last breath and beyond.

Here they are, those verses.

Romans 8:19-22 

19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

20For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

22For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

These verses were offered in support of the claim that all of creation and its inhabitance suffered a negative change when Adam and Eve fell by disobedience. I have enjoyed many of God’s other living creations. I’ve observer, dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, crows, chickens and discovered that they all have the ability to be our friends. They have a light of understanding, a love for life, especially their own, much like our selves. These creatures are problem solvers, communicators and are often times good companion. What I am trying to say, I am fond of them and desire the best for them. The living sustain the living and it is not always perceptible to our senses or common knowledge. These verses please me because they promise that all our worldly companions will receive an incorruptible glory. Remember, the Serpent, a beast of the field, that was in the Garden of Eden, it was attractive and able to speak and it didn’t slither along. It will receive an incorruptible and glorious restoration. Isn’t that happy news?

I am going to mention something to you that you may not know. It will be the subject of another writing. It took a long while before I was given this information. The God that led the Israelites out of the land of Egypt, and the house of bondage, was none other than Jesus, the Messiah, and the only begotten of the Father in regards to the flesh. This can and will be demonstrated by chapter and verse at a later date. I’ll be covering ground that is not as of yet as clear as I hope it may become.
