Shalom. Our teaching will continue from The Law of Moses, The Word of GOD, from Numbers 15.32-36.
AND THE TITLE OF OUR TEACHING IS, GOD COMMANDS ALL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE TO KEEP HIS SABBATH ON SATURDAY, THE SEVENTH DAY OF THE WEEK.
And with that said, let’s read Numbers 15.32-36.
ISRAEL IS THE ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD THAT OBEYS THE GOD OF THE WHOLE EARTH BY KEEPING HIS SABBATH ON SATURDAY, THE SEVENTH DAY OF THE WEEK, FROM SUNDOWN ON FRIDAY TO SUNDOWN ON SATURDAY.
NO OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD KEEPS GOD’S SABBATH BUT ISRAEL.
GOD The Creator Who spoke the universe into existence in six days, rested from all His work on the seventh day. And GOD blessed the seventh day Saturday, and Sanctified it making Saturday Holy, The Sabbath of The LORD. LEVITICUS 23.3
ISRAEL’S OBSERVANCE OF GOD’S SABBATH ON SATURDAY IS EVIDENCE OF JEWISH LOVE FOR THE GOD OF ISRAEL, AND A TESTIMONY THAT GOD RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY SATURDAY FROM ALL HIS WORK THAT HE CREATED AND MADE. GENESIS 2.1-3
Christianity on the other hand, refers to GOD’S Sabbath on Saturday, the seventh day of the week as a Jewish day of rest and worship. When in fact, Saturday is The Sabbath of The LORD for all mankind. And a day of rest, and a day to worship THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, THE GOD OF THE WHOLE EARTH. LEVITICUS 23.3
EXODUS 31.12-17 Living in a Christian Nation that does not observe GOD’S Sabbath, nor does it obey GOD’S Laws that are written in the Law of Moses might make if difficult for many because your job and your employer require you to work on Saturday The Sabbath of The LORD.
I believe, and this is my opinion, that GOD will not hold those responsible for working on Saturday because of false theologians who foolishly changed GOD’S Sabbath to Sunday, or another day. However, if you are fortunate to have Saturday off, treat GOD’S Sabbath as GOD commands you. Cease from all types of work, and worship The LORD YOUR GOD on Saturday in a good place of worship.
On the other hand, GOD requires all Jewish People and all non-Jewish people to keep His Saturday Sabbath, and hold fast to His Covenant. GOD’S Covenant is His Word written in The Bible, and His Laws that are written in The Law of Moses that must be obeyed. And of course having Atonement in The Messiah Yeshua. And The LORD your GOD will bless you mightily with eternal life in Heaven. ISAIAH 56.1-7, PSALM 105.8-10, ISAIAH 53.10, JEREMIAH 31.31-34, HEBREWS 8.8-12, HEBREWS 10.16-17
(ISAIAH 56.6-7) GOD’S formula for Salvation is this. Keep the Sabbath on Saturday. Take hold of GOD’S Covenant, His Word and His Laws that are written in The Law of Moses. Then the sacrificial death of Messiah Yeshua for your atonement will be accepted by the LORD YOUR GOD.
That is the path to eternal life in Heaven.
(ISAIAH 58.13-14) By honoring GOD, keeping His Saturday Sabbath, The Holy of The LORD, you will delight yourself in The LORD because The LORD will delight Himself in you. And you will inherit everything GOD has given to Jacob whom He named Israel. GENESIS 32.28
One of the reasons Christianity has departed from GOD and His Sabbath on Saturday, and making Sunday their Sabbath, is because The Bible reads, “And on the first day of the week, Sunday, the Disciples and Apostles came together to break bread. And Paul preached to them”.
That is one of the silly reasons the church has made Sunday their Sabbath, abolishing GOD’S Sabbath on Saturday. A huge act of disobedience and indifference to GOD. ACTS 20.7
ALTHOUGH GOD’S SABBATH ON SATURDAY, THE SEVENTH DAY OF THE WEEK IS EASILY SEEN, WRITTEN IN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, THE CHURCH CONTINUES TO DISOBEY GOD AND OBSERVE SUNDAY FOR THEIR SABBATH RATHER THAN OBEY THE GOD OF CREATION, THE GOD OF THE WHOLE EARTH, WHO HAPPENS TO BE THE MESSIAH YESHUA, JESUS CHRIST WHOM THE CHURCH IS SUPPOSEDLY BUILT UPON. EXODUS 20.8-11, DEUTERONOMY 5.12-15, ISAIAH 9.6, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, JOHN 12.45,49, JOHN 14.9
Let’s look at some restrictions that GOD commands for The Sabbath Day on Saturday.
No fire of any kind may be lit on The Sabbath from Friday at sundown to Saturday at sundown. GOD does not want your wife or yourself cooking on the Sabbath. He wants you to rest, and worship Him on that Day. EXODUS 35.3
No business of any kind is to be done on The Sabbath Day. EXODUS 35.1-2
Gathering wood, or doing any kind of work on The Sabbath Day is forbidden by THE LORD. NUMBERS 15.32-36
Carrying anything on The Sabbath is considered work and is forbidden. GOD wants us to rest on The Sabbath Day, and worship Him at a Service of the gathering of the People. JEREMIAH 17.21, LEVITICUS 23.3
However, the preparation of the Service on The Sabbath Day, and performing the Service which is work is allowed by The LORD GOD. MATTHEW 12.5
WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT THE SON OF MAN, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, IS LORD, EVEN OF THE SABBATH DAY? MATTHEW 12.8
YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. HE IS THE GOD OF THE WHOLE EARTH WHO MADE THE SABBATH A DAY OF REST ON SATURDAY FOR ALL MANKIND. GENESIS 2.1-3, LEVITICUS 23.3, ISAIAH 9.6, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, JOHN 12.45, 49, JOHN 14.9
YESHUA THE MESSIAH ALWAYS KEPT THE SABBATH ON SATURDAY. MARK 1.21, LUKE 4. 16-21, MARK 16.9.
(MARK 16.9) RATHER THEN VIOLATE THE SABBATH, MESSIAH ROSE FROM THE DEAD ON SUNDAY.
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary kept The Sabbath on Saturday. MATTHEW 28.1
The Disciples and the Apostles kept The Sabbath of GOD on Saturday. ACTS 13.13-14
Keeping GOD’s Sabbath on Saturday pleases The LORD your GOD. 1 THESSALONIANS 4.1, 1 JOHN 3.22, ROMANS 3.31
AND GOD RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AND MADE SATURDAY FROM SUNDOWN FRIDAY TO SUNDOWN SATURDAY THE WEEKLY SABBATH, THE DAY OF REST FOR ALL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE.
AND TAKE NOTE THAT WHEN GOD ESTABLISHED THE SEVENTH DAY SATURDAY SABBATH OF REST, THERE WERE NO RELIGIONS ON EARTH BUT TWO PEOPLE. ADAM AND EVE. AND ADAM AND EVE WERE NOT JEWISH. GOD’S SABBATH OF REST ON SATURDAY IS FOR EVERYONE. GENESIS 2.1-3
But sadly, the church has foolishly replaced The Sabbath of The LORD on Saturday to Sunday. And in so doing, Christianity has abolished GOD’S Sabbath for most all Christians. Big mistake. A very big mistake.
Here’s Christian doctrine concerning The Sabbath of The LORD on Saturday from the Wycliffe Bible Dictionary. And I quote.
In relevance today. Two views are held today concerning The Sabbath. (1) That it has been done away with completely.
And that man needs one day of rest in seven.
It, (The Saturday Sabbath of The LORD) and all the Mosaic Law (The Law of Moses) and the Decalogue (The Ten Commandments) in particular are no longer binding. (2 Corinthians 3.6-11)
Many reformed theologians believe however, Wycliffe continues, that it is not possible to maintain that The Ten Commandments are no longer valid. They point out that Christ kept them in our stead for our justification-that they are done away with only as far as justification is concerned. And The New Testament writers quote them as applicable for our sanctification.
Christ uses them (The Ten Commandments) in The Sermon on The Mount. (Matthew 5.21, 27, Paul in Romans 13.8-10, and James in James 2.10-12).
Wycliffe continues, that since The Son of Man is LORD of The Sabbath, He had the right to change the day of its keeping for His church from the last day of the week to the first day. And did so in order that it might become a commemoration of His rising from the dead.
This appears to many to be the only explanation, Wycliffe writes, that fits all the facts. Since The Sabbath was made for man, Christ changed its celebration to bless man.
MY RESPONSE? NUTS. HOW DO YOU SPELL CONFUSION AND FOOLISHNESS?
GOD’S SABBATH ON SATURDAY HAS NEVER BEEN DONE AWAY WITH OR CHANGED BY CHRIST OR ANYONE… CHECK THE SCRIPTURES.
GOD’S SABBATH REMAINS FOREVER. ISAIAH 66.22-24
ANOTHER LIE THAT THE CHURCH TEACHES IS THAT THE MOSAIC LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE, AND THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN PARTICULAR ARE NO LONGER BINDING.
WHAT god DO THEY SERVE?
CERTAINLY NOT THE MESSIAH JESUS, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL. THE GOD OF THE WHOLE EARTH.
ANOTHER LIE OF THE CHURCH IS THAT CHRIST KEPT THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN OUR STEAD. DON’T THEY READ THE BIBLE? GOD COMMANDS ALL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE TO REPENT LEST THEY PERISH.
REPENT MEANS TO TURN FROM YOUR SINS, 1 JOHN 3.4, OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES, TO OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES THAT INCLUDES THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.
AND YOU WILL SURELY LIVE, THE LORD SAYS, AND NOT DIE. ACTS 17.30, EZEKIEL 18.21, 2 KINGS 17.13-14, LUKE 13.3,5
IN EZEKIEL 18.21 AND 2 KINGS 17.13, THE WORD TURN IN HEBREW IS SHOOV MEANING TO REPENT.
CHRIST NEVER CHANGED THE SATURDAY SABBATH OF GOD TO SUNDAY. THE CHURCH DID.
AND CHANGING GOD’S SABBATHS, OR LAWS, OR COVENANTS, OR ANYTHING GOD SPOKE DOES NOT BRING BLESSINGS, BUT CURSES.
NO MAN CAN CHANGE ANYTHING OF GOD. HIS SABBATHS, HIS WORD, HIS LAWS, OR HIS COVENANTS. BECAUSE THE WORD OF GOD STAND FOREVER.
GOD HIMSELF CAN NOT CHANGE HIS SABBATH, OR HIS WORD, OR HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, OR ANYTHING THAT HE HAS SPOKEN IN THE BIBLE.
SO IF YOU HEAR, OR THINK YOU ARE READING THAT PAUL, OR PETER, OR JAMES, OR CHRIST, OR ANYONE HAS CHANGED ANYTHING THAT GOD HAS SPOKEN IN THE BIBLE, DON’T BELIEVE IT. BECAUSE NOBODY, NOT EVEN GOD HIMSELF CAN CHANGE WHAT HE HAS DECREED.
ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH THE WORD IMMUTABLE? IMMUTABLE MEANS UNCHANGEABLE. GOD DOES NOT CHANGE. HE DOES NOT CHANGE HIS MIND NOR DOES HE CHANGE HIS WORD.
THE PROPHET MALACHI TELLS US WHAT GOD SAID TO HIM. I AM THE LORD. I DO NOT CHANGE. MALACHI 3.6, NUMBERS 23.19, PSALM 33.11, PSALM 102.27, I SAMUEL 15.29, ROMANS 11.29, HEBREWS 1.12, HEBREWS 6.17, HEBREWS 13.8, JAMES 1.17
THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE, IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE ENTIRE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.
BECAUSE THE WORD OF GOD STANDS ON THAT FOUNDATION, THE LAW OF MOSES. AND THAT FOUNDATION NEVER CHANGES.
SO IF YOU HEAR OR READ SOMETHING THAT DOES NOT AGREE WITH THE LAW OF MOSES, WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD OR READ IS WRONG. BECAUSE THE WORD OF GOD STANDS FOREVER. IT NEVER CHANGES, NOR DOES IT EVER END. ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25, PSALM 1.1-3, MATTHEW 7.24-27
(MATTHEW 7.24-27) MESSIAH’S SAYINGS COME FROM THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THE PROPHETS, AND THE WRITINGS IN TNAKH, THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES.
THE WISE MAN WHO BUILT HIS LIFE UPON GOD, AND HIS WORD THAT INCLUDES GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, BUILT HIS LIFE UPON A ROCK. THAT ROCK IS GOD. AND GREAT TROUBLES CAME INTO HIS LIFE, AND BEAT UPON HIM. BUT HE DID NOT FALL BECAUSE HIS LIFE WAS BUILT UPON GOD AND HIS WORD AND HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.
BUT THOSE WHO BUILD THEIR LIFE UPON SAND, NOT OBEYING GOD, NOT OBEYING HIS SABBATH, NOT OBEYING GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, THAT PERSON WILL FALL, AND GREAT WILL BE HIS FALL, MESSIAH SAYS, WHEN GREAT TROUBLES COME INTO HIS LIFE.
THE CHURCH MUST GET BACK TO THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THE BIBLE, AND DUMP THE FALSE THEOLOGIANS .
THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THE BIBLE ARE WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES, ALONG WITH YOUR FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA WHO GIVES YOU ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS.
MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE NEW COVENANT THAT FORGIVES YOU YOUR SINS, PROMISED BY GOD TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN JEREMIAH 31.31-34.
THOSE LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES ARE NOT MOSES’ LAWS, BUT GOD’S LAWS THAT GOD GAVE TO MOSES FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE. ISAIAH 43.10
GOD ALMIGHTY HAS GIVEN THE MESSIAH YESHUA TO ALL THE WORLD FOR YOUR ATONEMENT BECAUSE GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD.
AND FOR ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO SERVE THE LORD BY KEEPING HIS SATURDAY SABBATH FROM POLLUTING IT, AND TAKING HOLD OF HIS COVENANT, HIS WORD AND HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, THEN, AND ONLY THEN WILL THE ATONING SACRIFICIAL DEATH OF MESSIAH YESHUA BE ACCEPTED BY THE LORD YOUR GOD FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS. I JOHN 3.4
