"IT IS HIGH TIME TO OBEY YAHVAH UNLAWFUL TEACHINGS CORRECTED"
1Ki_11:28 And the man Jeroboam was a mighty man of valour: and Solomon seeing the young man that he was industrious, he made him ruler over all the charge of the house of Joseph.
1Ki_13:33 After this thing Jeroboam returned not from his evil way, but made again of the lowest of the people priests of the high places: whosoever would, he consecrated him, and he became one of the priests of the high places.
1Ki_13:34 And this thing became sin unto the house of Jeroboam, even to cut it off, and to destroy it from off the face of the earth.
Lev_23:39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the YAHVAH seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath. Feast of Tabernacles
1Ki_12:32 And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made.
Palm Sunday or Aviv 9?
John12:1 Then Messiah six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
John 12:12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that YaHOSHA was coming to Jerusalem,
John 12:13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of YaHVaH.
Joh 12:14 And YaHOSHA, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
John 12:15 Fear not, daughter of Tsion/Zion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.
This day would have been Aviv 8 (6 days before Aviv 14 Passover) and in that year on the Fourth day of Week (commonly 'Wednesday') Messiah made this entry into Bethany.
When the common calendar was changed to the Gregorian calendar, time jumped-ahead exactly two weeks. The order of the 'days of the week' were not lost as it picked right up with the next day. Therefore time has not been lost and can still accurately be accounted for.
If you look-up the year 321 A.D. possibly this Aviv 8 fell on a First day of the week. Constantine taking advantage of the opportunity to bring everyone together may have used that to help bring about the concept of a Palm 'Sunday'.
Many will celebrate "Palm Sunday" . Much preparation and fine ceremonies will take place. They were ushering in what they thought was the King Who would bring political freedom. Yahosha Messiah’s first coming was to bring spiritual liberty and sight to the blind.
It is the proclivity of men and of Israyl to change YaHVaH’s Set-Feasts and Sabbaths. Or in this case, to create a tradition of Palm Sunday and lay the foundation. Messiah rode the colt 6 days before (either Passover night, or Passover Feast 4/15) However, Messiah was resurrected on Aviv 17 (at the end of Sabbath of that year. This day of week varies each year, but Aviv 17 is always the seventeenth of Aviv.) Palm false Sunday was created possibly for the negating of YaHVaH's Sabbath and paving the way to the NEW LORD'S DAY. Not every teacher had the agenda of breaking the Torah.
Please try to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves in sharing the Aviv 9 concept with traditionalists. If YaHVaH opens the door for you to gently share, then proceed with ‘kid’s gloves’ (but do not be too sheepish).
Mark 11:7 and Matthew 21:8 "...they brought the colt to Messiah and cast their garments on Him, and He sat upon it. And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees and strawed them in the way.."
Scripture shows, yes they laid palm leaves and garments for YaHOSHA, but does not say this event was on Sunday. Study MattitYahu 21:2> and Yochanon/John 12. Proof it was 6 days before Passover of Aviv 14; Palm Aviv (either 8 9). So, the not-so-long-haired Messiah (He did not take a Nazarite vow) rode into Bethany on a colt NOT to proclaim that the Sabbath is no longer legitimate, and that Sunday is the new false Sabbath, but to fulfill prophecy ZechariYah 9:9.
YaHOSHA Messiah did not come to nullify the Torah but to bring us to repentance. “He will magnify the Torah and make it honorable.” IsaiYah 42:21 and Matthew 5:17, 18. Taking into account the unlawful changes were made hundreds of years ago and that people generally try to keep the Commandment in Truth and in Spirit. Tradition dies hard. There is no Palm SUNDAY.
So let us learn the Truth about the order of things, regarding Passover of YaHOSHA Messiah and His Memorial supper. Search the Word.
The Scriptures define "Discernment" in Malachi 3:18
Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth YaHVaH and him that serveth Him not.
Lev 20:26 (KJV) And ye shall be qodesh/holy/separate unto me: for I YaHVaH am separate, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine. "I have separated you from the peoples to be Mine" (Source: HalleluYaHVaH Scriptures)
1.The purpose of the Torah is to convince us of sin and our need to repent. Believers are saved unto good works (Eph. 2:10),; Torah is the Standard which is the way unto life (Psalm 1). The Torah is a blessing, and to all who keep His Word with a pure heart.
In the New Testament there are 1,050 commands. But some say, "We only have to “love” the Father and neighbor”. So is the Torah only there to condemn us?
Is it not YaHVaH's standard? Is it not proof of our love?
2. The second purpose of the Torah is that it is our compass.
And the term, "Messianic" by definition indicates that all those who ARE Messianic should believe in Messiah and be grafted into that Good Olive Tree. Romans 11
The Sabbath and Feasts are listed over thirty times from Acts to The Revelation. Hebrews 4 is the revealed Word of YaHVaH. It states that "The Seventh Day is that specific Sabbath day of rest". From the opponents of that eternal law of love, there is only silence. If YaHVaH were silent, then it would be justifiable to be silent. YaHVaH has spoken loudly and clearly in the prophets for His Seventh day (Saturday) Sabbath.
Incidentally, according to Matthew 12:40 Messiah died on the daytime portion of Aviv 14 before dusk, and rose from the grave exactly three nights and days later on Aviv 17, before Dusk. Berry's Greek Interlinear states in Matthew 28:1 "In the end of the Sabbath, As it began to grow-dusk before the First day of the week.” (Not Sunday.)
False teachings that Messiah died on Friday and rose on the First Day, cancelling His law of worship, fail to pass the Scriptural test. Messiah died on Aviv 14 and arose Aviv 17, not Friday to Sunday. See Matthew 12:38, 28:1. Aviv 14 evening is Passover, where Messiah supped and washed the emissaries’ feet. The daytime of Aviv 14 Passover Day, He was impaled and buried in the tomb before dusk. At the end of Aviv 17 He arose from the tomb as it “Began to grow dusk toward the First day of the Week”. Mary Magdelon came to the tomb the daytime of Aviv 18 and “He was not there”. He has risen. Do the math.
What is LOVE? “By this (test) we know that we love the children of YaHVaH when we love YaHVaH and keep His commandments. For THIS is the LOVE of YaHVaH that we keep His Commandments (Greek 1785 "precepts, the Law") and His Commandments are not grievous (G 926 burdensome). 1 John 5:2-3. More later about YaHVaH’s Feast days, below.
In the End: Rev 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and YaHVaH shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
Rev_21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Rev_22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of YaHVaH and of the Lamb.
Rev_22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
Joel 3:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of YaHVaH Almighty, and shall water the valley of Shittim/Acacia.
Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Annointed One also loved the assembly, and gave Himself for it;
Eph 5:26 That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27 That He might present it to himself a glorious assembly, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be Pure and without blemish.
YaHOSHA our Messiah said:
John 3:5 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of YaHVaH.
Joh_4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Feast of Last Great Day John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Heb_10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
Act_10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Pure Spirit as well as we?
Psa 65:9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of YaHVaH, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
Isa 41:17 When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I YaHVaH Almighty will hear them, I YaHVaH of Israel will not forsake them.
Isa 41:18 I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
Isa 44:3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:
Isa 44:4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.
Isa 49:8 Thus saith YaHVaH Almighty, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
Isa 49:9 That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.
Isa 49:10 They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
Isa 58:11 And YaHVaH Almighty shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
The Scriptural Feasts are a blessing; man's holidays of Halloween, New Year, Easter are a curse! JeremiYaH 10, Galatians 4 and more describe the idolatrous abominations and resultant curses.
YaHVaH’s Feasts are forever. Forever means forever.
Those who will reject the invitation(s) to the Feast are like uninvited guests. No one will force their arm and drag them to be as they say “Under the law, inheriting the curse, keeping Jewish Feasts”. But only that we compel them to be filled with the Spirit and then come together to YaHVaH’s appointments for a real convocation.
If we learn to keep Father's Torah of love we shall even know more than many teachers, Psalm 119:99-100 "..I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Thy precepts."
Where is the true Sabbath? In Genesis 1. Also Hebrews 4 reaffirms "Therefore, there remaineth a REST to the people of YaHVaH." "He specified a certain day...that Seventh Day; He spoke not of another day." Romans 8:7 Those who reject Messiah are in rebellion “..Not subject to the Law of YaHVaH, neither indeed can be." Psalm 19 (all): "The Law of YaHVaH is perfect converting the soul." Psalm 119 "Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not Thy statutes..for all Thy commandments are righteousness..Every one of Thy righteous judgments, His Commandments, Statutes and Judgments endureth for ever." Discernment comes from studying, believing, knowing and living the Word.
Yahvah does not ask us to do some "UN-reasonable service"
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of YaHVaH, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, Pure, acceptable unto YaHVaH, which is your reasonable service.
Some call themselves prophets and say, "A prophet can only be corrected by someone who has equal or greater status." Thus they are completely uncorrectable by most believers.
Perhaps they will accuse the true teacher of having a "religious spirit" and "the accuser of the brethren". The religious spirit is generally applied to anyone who attempts to ask questions. You become painted as someone who is stuck in the 'old wineskins'. Their lack of understanding of Torah and all of Scripture is apparent.
Why is Torah written in Scriptures and why is it falsely called “Old Jewish bondage?" If we are the tribe of Ephraim and reject Messiah and His Law. then we deserve the curses, wars and internment camps.
As we read the precious Word, the Mountain of Spices and learn that YaHVaH’s Feasts are right, rejoicing the heart (Psalm 19) and kept in the millennium (IsaiYah 66:22-23) there is no need to wait for feelings to convict us, nor if someone else is taking the lead to follow the trend. Feelings FOLLOW not LEAD us in hearing and obeying the Word.
There is nothing about "tarry until we feel convicted". We have bleached-out our conscience for many years. But we should obey when we are told in The Word. The Hebrews did not need to tarry. They simply said, "Yes, we will obey" Exodus 24:7.
Messiah did not say in Matthew on the Mount, "Wait until you are convicted or until you FEEL that it is true" but with no delayed obedience we turn our hearts toward home, in pure love. I will admit it took plenty of Pure Spirit conviction to give-up that pagan tree, that pork chop, bacon and ham. Paul wished that "We all be of the same faith, and speak the SAME word." Ignorance is not bliss. "Men and brethren, I have lived in good conscience before you to this day" Acts 20:20. James says "Be not only hearers, but doers." But they said, "We shall be hearers but not doers". Paul says in Romans 12 it is not our unreasonable service, but reasonable service.
Should I be unconvicted and disobedient? Or should we be convicted and obedient? But I might have 'felt' "I do not FEEL convicted of not wearing TziTzis (and hat for priests)" Or "I'm not convicted of wrong lust". The concept leads us to believe that we are not obligated to obey unless we “feel” conviction.
YaHVaH is not the author of confusion in the worship service but of a pure and righteous Spirit. The True Spirit is effective in converting heart and mind .
In response to some neo-Protestant teaching that “If you keep the law, you cannot be saved; you cannot do good works and be saved” we believe this: Eph 2:8 Salvation not by works of righteousness but by unmerited favor (common word: grace) and by His mercy He saved us through His Son YaHOSHA. Only by that bloody offering on the Tree at Calvary can we be saved. Anyone who seeks to climb-up to the sheepfold is both a thief and a robber. “He that entereth not by THE DOOR into the sheepfold, but climbeth-up SOME OTHER WAY, the same is a thief and a robber. John 10:1-2
The superficial concept of just “Just accepting Ieasus” is not Scriptural. The worn-out cliche "Not religion, just a relationship" is a shallow concept that ignores that we must press into the Kingdom of YaHVaH with all our heart and spirit. Where is the Covenantal relationship?
Where is our espousal contract that the Bride must be betrothed to YaHOSHA Messiah? Hebrews 8:10; 10:16
We must be in a Love Covenant relationship with the TRUE Messiah Hebrews 8:10. But again, obeying the Torah (laws) will not and did not save anyone, not even Abraham. The Scripture speaks of the people of YaHVaH as the espoused Bride. Our love must be true and faithful and not shared with other “lovers” the idolatrous religions of the world.
If you are saved, you love YaHVaH and obey His Torah. “If you love Me, keep My Commandments” Messiah said in John 14:15; 15:10. Let us move up to Higher Ground to love YaHVaH with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.
In answer to the statement “You must believe in the Trinity to become saved” we do believe in the Spirit of YaHVaH called Ruach ha Kadosh and also in the Gifts of the Spirit. We believe in the Word of YaHVaH, the Son, The Word made flesh. It is not written that we must believe in the Roman teaching of the Trinity. We do NOT believe in three separate gods of the pantheon. Scripture says “Believe on Messiah, confess, repent and you will be saved.”
It is truly a matter of taking YaHVaH and His Son’s Word. If we would all hope and trust in the Scriptures as first and last authority, we would be rooted, grounded and settled forever in the faith that is true.
Are the Scriptures totally sufficient as they claim? If so, believe that they give us the time for Sabbath invitation to worship, beginning Sundown after Sixth of the week (begins 7th day) until Sundown of the First of the week.
Without repenting of our having broken The Torah, we cannot receive Messiah and salvation. Acts 2:38; 5:29-33
We believe that Isaiah 8:19-20 is true for all today, “To the Law and to the Testimony, if they speak not according to this (His) Word, there is NO light in them”. Further, if they speak only scholarly research and there is no operation of the Pure Spirit then we (they/some) do not have “SPIRIT and Truth”. One cannot have the Spirit without the Truth. Acts 5:29 above.
Regarding "YaHVaH” versus “YaHVeH" the vowel “e” is not specified.
We are coming out of Babylon. It is high "TIME TO OBEY" not to tarry.
