'Vicarius Filii Dei' is Latin. And means, 'Vicar of the Son of God.' If you did not know the Pope wears a mitre (fish hat) and that is written on it.
According to the 'Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop.' "The Pope has power to change times, to abrogate (change) laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ."
'A doctrinal Catechism' by Stephen Keenan, pg. 174 tells us that the Universal Church authorities was asked, "Have you any other way of proving that the church (RC) has power to institute festivals of precept?" They responded with, "Had she not such power, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday, the seventh day, a change for which there is no scriptural authority."
'The Convert's catechism of Catholic Doctrine' pg. 50, third edition tells us more of where the Sunday Sabbath came from. 'We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea (A.D. 364), transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.'
Who changed the day, Elohim or man? We find this answer declared by Cardinal Gibbons , 'The Catholic church by virtue of her divine mission changed the day from Saturday to Sunday.'
What do they say about their leader, the Pope? According to, 'History of the Councils,' Vol. XIV, col.109, "For thou art the shepherd, thou art the physician, thou art the director, thou art the husbandman, finally thou art another God on earth.'
If that does not have you sitting on the edge of your seat wait until you read the following about the same leader, 'On the Authority of Councils.' book 2, Chapter 17, "All the names which are attributed to Christ in Scripture, implying His supremacy over the church, are also attributed to the Pope."
There we have it! The church (RCC) and state (Constantine) united and thought to change Elohim's laws and feast days.
That the Muslims keep Thursday (sunset) to Friday (sunset) as their Sabbath. Most Christians keep Sunday as the Sabbath. Niether one of these is the true Sabbath of Elohim.
Have you ever been lied to? Do you remember the feelings you felt? Maybe, at first you were angry, displeased, shocked and overwhelmed with sorrow. Then a sudden feeling of peace over-came you, realizing the truth had set you free.
Sadly, we all have been lied to and inevitably we will be lied to again. Some lies may seem small, not amounting to anything, but every lie that is told is sin. Revelation 21:7-8, 'He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his Elohim, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable; and murders, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all LIARS, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.' (1) Every time we sin, we separate ourselves from Elohim. Elohim is Set Apart (holy) and can not be in the presence of sin. He loves us so much, that He made a way for us to be able to fellowship with Him. That way happens to be through his Son, Yahushua HaMashiach. He is our High Priest that has entered once into the Set Apart Place making atonement for our sins. In Scriptures Yahushua called one the 'Father of Lies' (John 8:44). Whether we like it or not this one does have children! Scriptures refer to them as 'wolves in sheep's clothing.'
In one form or another, we we all have grown accustomed in accepting man-made traditions. Uncovering the truth, at first, can seem very painful, resulting in a wave of mixed emotions; but knowing the truth will set us free. Ask yourself, beloved friend, do You want to be set free? Or do you want to stay in your comfort zone taking part in the evil web that has been spinning since the beginning of time? Most lies do not stand up and say, "hey look at me, I'm a lie!" On the contrary, they are hidden behind layers of secrets!
Yahushua is talking to ones that work iniquity. What is iniquity? It is the violation of law, moral evil. We know the Ten Commandments teach us the moral law, therefore iniquity is lawlessness, which is breaking the Ten Commandments, the moral law. These ones work lawlessness. We are told the following in, Matthew 24:12, "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall be wax cold." Without a doubt, many heart's are cold. Let us now see what day Eloah did sanctify, Genesis 2:3, "And Elohim blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it; because that in it he had rested from all his work, which Elohim created and made." According to the, "Strong's Complete Dictionary of Bible Words", the word sanctified means: to be, make clean, to purify, (to observe as), (be, keep, kept) holy." (2) This 'seventh day' is to be set apart different than the other six days.
SUN-Day meaning dies Solis, the Day-of-the-Sun. The following is a list of some of the pagan deities (please take note that these different names are from the different cultures throughout time but this is the same deity being worshipped): Baal (Lord), Moloch, Ahura-Mazda, Dagon, Sol, Marduk, Mithra, Krisna, Amon-Ra, Woden (odin), Zues, Deus and even Nimrod.
The second day of the week is named, MON-Day meaning the Day-of-the-Moon, lunae dies.We get the word month from the word mona. The moon was identified with Artemis or Diana.
The third day of the week is named, TUES-Day meaning Tyr's Day, day of Tiu, a Teutonic Druid-Celtic idol. Tyr or Tiu, was the Norse deity of war, considered the son of Odin (Woden).
The forth day of the week is named, WEDNES-Day meaning Woden Odin a Celtic deity. Was considered highly skilled in magic (majik). And was the Teutonic Pagan husband of Frigga. This day was also honored as Mercuril dies (Mercury Day).
The fifth day is named, THURS-Day named the Celtic Thor's Day: deity of thunder and son of Woden and Frigga. Romans honored Jupiter on this day, was originally IU-Pitar, meaning Jovis-father. Jovis /Jove corresponds to Zeus. Thors emblem is the hammer and it was secretly interpreted as the letter 'T', going back to Tammuz (a Jewish month after the exile, our June/July), son of Nimrod and Semiramis.
The sixth day is named, FRI-Day meaning Frey Day or Frigga Day. Frigga was the wife of Woden. This day was the Egyptian's day of Isis. The Greeks honored Aphrodite on this day, the fertility deity.
The seventh day is named, SATUR-Day meaning the day of Saturn. This deity was for agriculture and corresponds with the Greek deity Cronus.
Sabean worship consists of worshipping the whole celestial body of heaven. As the planets circumbulate the sun, the people would mimic this motion as they circumbulate a physical or an imaginary (visualized) object. This type of worship has crept into the calendar. Clearly, the days of the week are named after the Sabean worship.
We learn in Acts 7:42 the following: "Then Elohim turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?" Time and time again, we learn that the children of Israel would partake in Sabean worship. (2 Kings 17:16; 21:3,5; 2 Chronicles 33:5; Jeremiah 19:13; Zephaniah 1:5). Truly, many have gone and worshipped the creation other than the Creator. Yep, friends, this calendar of our's comes straight from pagan Rome, full of false deity worship. Not to mention going against what Elohim has said, "learn not the ways of the pagans" (Jeremiah 10:2). The Scriptures is the 'cause' and the 'effects' are the manifestations found throughout history.
The Calendar that many of us have grown accustomed to comes from the solar, unlike lunisolar. The Gregorian calendar named after Pope Gregory XIII is also known as the Christian Calendar.
This calendar was made to fix the confusion over scheduling when the holiday known as Easter (Ishtar/Asherim) would be held. Of course this Easter takes place during the vernal equinox when it is believed mother earth is impregnated. She goes through a nine month gestation period ending at the winter solistic (Dec.25).
In 321 C.E. Constantine set the following days:
1. Dies Solis-Sun day
2. Dies Lunae-Moon day
3. Dies Martis-Mar's day
4. Dies Mercoril-Mercury's day
5. Dies Iovis-Jupiter's day
6. Dies Vemeros- Venus's day
7. Dies Saturni-Saturn's Day.
Today we have Sunday (sun), Monday (moon), Tuesday (Tyr old Norse deity), Wednesday (Woden an old English deity), Thursday (Thor an old Norse deity), Friday (Frigg Norse female deity) and Saturday (Saturn a Roman deity).
Yahushua Mashiach spoke about many that would be persecuted for their faith in Him. John 15:20, "Remember the word that I said unto you, the servant is not greater than his (master). If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; If they have kept my sayings, they will keep yours also." The adversary (Satan, devil) has killed thousands of followers for their faith in Yahushua Messiah. The Romans killed these faithful ones for their faith.
They were tortured, burned alive, fed to lions and hung on stakes. Many believe that Nero was indeed the anti-Messiah. I believe that Nero, along with many others carried the anti-Messiah spirit within him. We must rememeber that the term anti-Messiah can be many people. They have the same spirit. Anti-Messiah not only opposes everything the Messiah stands for, but also it comes in place of the real one.
That is why the Messiah spoke about 'wolves in sheep's clothing' (Matthew 7:15). Astonishingly, the horrific torture these faithful ones witnessed did not stop them from practicing their faith. They had an unwillingness to submit to the demands of the Romans by compromising their faith. When the Church and State united, they new it was easier to eliminate 1% than to kill the 99%. These faithful servants were not even called 'Christians' they were called, 'Nazarenes'. They were also called, Natsarim meaning sect of Nazarenes, watchmen, branches. And who is the vine? Yahushua of course is the vine. We are the branches. They were not called Christian. Yahushua Messiah is their high-priest. They called on his real name (not the more popular Hellenized version). They also kept the Ten Commandments of Elohim, which included the Seventh-Day Sabbath. Let us ponder on why would Yahushua tell us that the Sabbath was made for man, then change what day is the Sabbath? There was only one weekly Sabbath and when He said Sabbath He meant the weekly day of rest for the children of Elohim. This is an everlasting sign between Elohim and His children. He tells us the following: Mathew 24-20, "But pray your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day." This chapter talks about the end times, the Great Tribulation/Great Distress. Yahushua Messiah is telling His followers, pray that your flight be not in the winter nor on a Sabbath day. He was referring to the Seventh Day Sabbath. He knew that many of His Followers would remember this day and keep it 'set apart'. The Sabbath day, is an everlasting sign between Elohim and his children. (Exodus 31: 16,17).
Luke 16:13, "No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other, You cannot serve Elohim and mammon."
Knowing that we can only serve one Elohim and make that one Master of our lives, the adversary doesn't want us to serve or even know the one true Elohim. This adversary, has spread his lethal weapon of eternal destruction within the church. Slowly, he begins to move his queen in the front, removing one pawn at a time. Taking out the castle, moving down the line picking one off at a time. Until all that seems left is confusion and hopelessness with our KING still standing. HalleluYah, Praise be to Yah! For He is the living Elohim. We shall know the truth and the truth shall free us! (John 8:32).
For unity in the Empire, Constantine sees an image (the cross) in the sky and he declares Christianity to be the official state religion. He continued to worship the sun, moon and all the host of heaven, while declaring that everyone would give honor to the 'Sol Dies' or 'Sol Invictus,' the unconquered sun. Of course, this degree was under penalty of death. Many true followers fled for their lives, while others submitted to the degree.
In the great book of Daniel we are told that the following would happen: Daniel 7:25, "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." Praise be to Yah! See how the truth will set us free? Man has thought to change times and laws. The times that man has thought to change is Elohim's feast days and His law, the Torah. Through-out Scripture we know that Elohim has and will keep a remnant. These remnants have always remained pure. They would not worship false deities. Mark 7:7, "Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching the doctrines the commandments of men." After Constantine declared the state religion to be Christianity, 'compromise' and the 'negotiations' began. Leaving us truth with error. Can a little error hurt anyone? Galations 5:9, "A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump." We can not mix light with darkness! We can not mix error with truth. A divided house will fall.
Someone once told me that the adversary, Satan does not know the scriptures that is why he is so confused. I whole heartily disagree. The adversary does know the scriptures how else could he deceive the whole world even if it were possible the elect? He must know scriptures in order to twist it giving us a Religious Malt of Babylon.' This malt is based on confusion.
He takes the commandment of: "remember to keep holy [set apart] the Sabbath", which he then puffs up to appear that Sun-day is the true Sabbath. He claimed the Messiah rose on the 'first day' of the week [discussed in depth later in this booklet], making billions believe that the seventh day Sabbath, is just for the Jews. Actually these believers are Yahudim [followers of Yah], not Jews, so yet another misleading lie.
The Seventh-Day Sabbath is not the Jew's Sabbath, it is the Sabbath of YHWH. Paul tells us that there is neither Jew nor Greek, male nor female (Galatians 3:28). We also know that this seventh day Sabbath was not just for Jew's but was sanctified at the time of creation (Genesis 2:3). Then become an everlasting sign between YHWH and the Israelistes (Exodus 31:13). We are grafted into the vine, the vine is Yahushua Messiah. We become adoptee's (Romans 11:17). Are you starting to see how this light with darkness has crept into our man-made traditions? Sadly, this audience happens to be continually growing to the point scriptures tells us that the whole world is deceived. Let us go a little further. Not only does the adversary through the power of man give the illusion that the Sabbath is the first day of the week, but he goes to the extreme and changes another commandment. Let's first review, YHWH's Ten Commandments:
1.Thou shalt have no other elohims before Me.
2.Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them, for I YHWH Elohim am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments.
3.Thou shalt not take the name of YHWH, thy Elohim in vain; for YHWH will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.
4.Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thy labor, an do all thy work: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of YHWH thy Elohim; 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: for in six days, YHWH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore YHWH blessed the Sabbath day, and set apart it.
5.Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which YHWH thy Elohim giveth thee.
6.Thou shalt not murder
7.Thou shalt not commit adultery
8.Thou shalt not steal.
9.Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor's
10.Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors' house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbors' wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is thy neighbor.
Now let us look at the Ten Commandments changed by man. Taken from Catholic's Catechism (5). Pay close attention to the second Commandment. Catholic means Universal!
1. I am the Lord thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods before me.
2. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
3. Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day.
4. Honor thy father and thy mother.
5. Thou shalt not kill.
6. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
7. Thou shalt not steal.
8. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
9. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife
10.Thou not covet thy neighbor's goods.
Interesting huh? Hello, where is the second commandment? You know the one that says you shall not make any graven images (idols) and you shall not bow down yourself to them nor serve them? This is amazing, how man thinks to change times and laws!
What has the adversary accomplished by doing this? He has made the pagans happy because they get to worship their sun deity (there is only one being, called the accuser, adversary, but yet this one has many names). The children of YHWH are now breaking the "keep holy (set apart) the Sabbath" every week. Turning to Deuteronomy 17:3, "And has gone and served other elohims, worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded." If anyone served the sun, moon, or any of the host of heaven, male or female, they would be stoned to death. We know from scriptures that we do not stone anyone to death anymore. The reason being, is because vengeance belongs to Elohim. However, back in those days they did.
Oh, my friend, it doesn't stop there! We just read how the second commandment has vanished. Therefore, leading many pagan idols to get a face-lift. For instance, the Roman deity Jupitor is renamed 'St. Peter'. To this day, millions have bowed down and kissed this idol's foot. This golden idol can still be found at the Vatican. It's big toe hangs over the step.
Next, we find pictures of dead saints covering the church walls. These people are dead! This is the same old pagan worship just puffed up with a new spin, 'All Saints Day', 'All Souls Day', 'All Hallows' Eve (Halloween). Again, a direct breaking of the second commandment. Many excuses not to obey have slipped into this 'religious malt'. Like he knows my heart and in my heart I worship him. Titus 1:16, "They profess that they know Elohim; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate." Wow, this audience has now been tricked! Many think they are serving the true Elohim but in works they are not keeping His commandments. 1 John 2:4, "He that saith, I know him and keepeth not his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him." Tell me, how can someone repent (turn back) if they do not know they are breaking a commandment? They can't possible repent, if they do not know the moral law, the Ten Commandments! My beloved friend, the adversary, is the root being hidden deep under the ground. The Roman Universal Church is the trunk. Some 2,000 branches are the different denominations within Christianity, with branches forming each season. Having some truth to them but are being fed from under the ground. There is the mother harlot with daughters. Ask yourself, just who is this mother harlot and her daughters? Yahushua said, Matthew 15:14, "Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."
Please, do not follow blind guides, by accepting man-made traditions, and commandments of men. Instead take time to pray for wisdom, truth and understanding. Then the root will be exposed. All that do shall be freed from the twisted web that has been spinning since the garden. As individuals we need to read the scriptures for ourselves. Test the spirits and to discern between truth and error. Ephesian. 6:12, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
It never stop's amazing me, all the excuses some will come up with in being disobedient. Raising children, you think you've heard it all but there is always that one excuse that will just throw you for a loop. For instance, you tell your child, since you are the parent, not to eat any cookies because dinner is almost done. Your child, keeps using the famous, 'but' word. You tell him, for dinner you can have a cookie for desert. Thinking you solved the issue at hand, you go in the other room only to come back, finding your five year old, up on a chair, leaning half-way onto the kitchen counter-top with his hand in the cookie jar! One wrong move, down he goes along with the cookie jar. Your mouth drops to the floor while for a moment, you are in a state of, "Now I know I'm not seeing my child deliberately do something I just told him not to do."
"But Mommy, I...I...was just getting the cookie to eat after dinner!" He says with a mouth full of chocolate chips! Truly, we can relate to this mother and the frustration she must be feeling. We all are children. Some of us have one Father. The love this Father has towards us, brings a whole new meaning to the word 'patience'. And we show our love towards him, by being obedient to his Word (Torah).
Then there are the rebellious ones, like the child in the above story. 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12, "For the mystery of iniquity (lawlessness, breaking the moral law/Torah), doth already work; only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then the Wicked (lawless one) be revealed. whom the Master shall consume with the spirit of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs of lying wonders. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause Elohim shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
One excuse is, He knows my heart and I worship Him in my heart. According to the American Heritage Illustrated Encyclopedia Dictionary, we find the following under, Humanism: 'A philosophy or attitude that addresses itself exclusively to human as opposed to divine or supernatural concerns, often coupled with the belief that man is capable of reaching self-fulfillment without divine aid. A cultural and intellectual movement of a secular character that occurred during the Renaissance following the rediscovery of the literature, art, and civilization of ancient Greece and Rome.'
Humanism is when one starts reasoning that evil is not really evil. They decide what is and is not acceptable. In so doing they grow further and further away from our guide, the Scriptures. Sure they may read the scriptures but will say things like: 1. That is Old Testament stuff. 2. We live in the New Testatment now. 3. I don't think it means that. 4. He knows my heart. 5. Elohim changes. In the great book of Isaiah 5:20, we find, 'Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter." For an example, say you started studying the scriptures to find out what Elohim has to say about witchcraft. We are told to, 'Study to shew thyself approved unto Elohim, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.' (2 Timothy 2:15) In the process you come across the following verses: 1 Samuel 15:23; 2 Chronicles 33:6; Galatians 5:20; Micah 5:12; and Nahum 3:4 to name a few.
After finding out how Elohim feels about witchcraft you eagerly share this new founded news with others! As the conversation continues, your excitement turns to sorrow because the other person simple says, "Oh, that don't mean that. No he is not saying that at all!" Do you see how humanism works? Ok, let us proceed back to the Sabbath! More Sababth excuses, "The Sabbath hasn't even begun yet." Here is another one, "It doesn't matter which day as long as you set a day and pray." Really? Scriptures tells us we are to be obedient to His 'WORD' and we must worship Him in truth and in spirit. His Sabbath is an everlasting sign (seal) between Him and His children (Exodus 31:13).
When we heard the call to come out of Babylon, we were attending a Christian Denomination. We quit attending and a few months went by, I started finding tracts on the front porch. When we pass out tracts we go to every door on any given street. My neighbor did not get any tracts on her porch, just ours. It was then, when I realized I was going to have to tell them why we no longer attend. Surprisingly, the Preacher admitted to me, that Saturday was the Sabbath for Jews. He went on to tell me that this Sabbath was a sign between Elohim and the Israelites. According to, Genesis 2:3, "And Elohim blessed the seventh day and sanctified it; because that in it he had rested from all his work which Elohim created and made." From the beginning, this seventh day was sanctified by Elohim. "But...but we are not Jews!"
Here again that is the humanism philosophy. Galatians 3:28, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Yahushua Messiah." We also find in Romans 11:17;24 that we must be grafted into the olive branch. Scriptures also tells us that there is to be one law (Torah) for the the stranger and the home born alike (Exodus 12:49; Leviticus 24:22; Numbers 15:16).
The Preacher, then went on to ask me, "What G-d do you serve, being Saturday is named after Saturn?" Can you believe this? Here we were members of this church, helped out anyway we could but yet after all this time he asked what G-d do I serve? Doesn't he know that Elohim numbered the day's not named them, especially after pagan deities. Since, Elohim can't lie why would he tell us not to mention the names of pagan deities then turn around and name the days of the week after them?Men lie. 1 John 4:1, "Beloved, believe not every spirit but try the Spirits whether they are of Elohim: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." Let's take an in-depth look at the last two excuses some have for being disobedient to the law.
This excuse, sadly is one of the biggest error within the Christian family. Many people claim the reason why Sunday is now the Christian Sabbath is because Yahushua Messiah rose on that day. Up till this part of this booklet, we have uncovered that it was Constantine in 321 C.E. that declared Sunday the day of rest under a death penalty in honor of 'Sol Invintus'. Now let us look at what day did Yahushua Messiah rise on, was it Sunday or could it have possibly been another day?
Matthew 12:39-40, "But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly, so shall the Son of Man be THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS in the heart of the earth." You know that is pretty clear but yet the adversary is the author of confusion. "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:" (John 10:10) Please do not let the adversary steal the simplicity of our Father's words. Let us turn to John 19:14, "And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!" This is not the weekly preparation of the seventh day Sabbath. We find this was a much anticipated High Sabbath. John 19:31, 'The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross/stake on the Sabbath day, (FOR THAT SABBATH DAY WAS AN HIGH DAY,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken down.' Now we know this was a special high yearly Sabbath. He gave up His spirit about the ninth hour which is about 3:00 in the afternoon. Mark 15: 33,34,37, "And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Yahushua cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? Which is, being interpreted, My Elohim, My Elohim, why hast thou forsaken me? And Yahushua cried with a loud voice and gave up the spirit."
Let us now begin the seventy-two hour count. Wednesday about the ninth hour (3:00 in the afternoon) He gave up His Spirit. Wednesday to Thursday the ninth hour is one day (24 hours). Thursday to Friday at the ninth hour is two days (48 hours). Friday at the ninth hour to Saturday at the ninth hour is three days (72 hours). Three full days and three full nights. Notice the following three full nights.
Sadly, many have heard the Truth but because of harden hearts, pridefulness, stubbornness, being lukewarm, having itching ears many have adopted the humanism philosophy. So many have grown accustom to man-made traditions, including the commandments of men, that it is to hard to repent (turn back around to Him).
Interesting, seems we all fall into this category. I've even been told I'm going to hell and I serve a different deity than most. The very ones, that will do this to you, are the people you care about and love. Like family members, friends, preachers, ministers, neighbors, co-workers, etc. We are no longer invited to family functions, no phone calls, told we are not welcome until we change our ways back to what feels and sounds good to them! Can you believe this? Sadly, many do not want to hear the, 'call to come out of Babylon.' Too many people are happy getting their ears tickled. Going to this church or that church picking what sounds and feels good to them. One must ask, are they being obedient to the word? Yahushua said, Matthew 10:34, "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I come not to send peace, but a sword." What exactly is this sword? Scriptures tell us, "for the Word of Yahuwah is quick and powerful, sharper than any two edge double sword" (Hebrew 4:12)! What is Yahuwah's word? The Word is the Torah, and became flesh and dwelt among men. He also tells us in Luke 12:52, "For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three."
We love our family members and friends; I cannot help but to wonder why many no longer like us, since we have changed our beliefs over the Sabbath! We have not judged them, they can do as they like. Truly, the words spoken by Yahushua will never pass away.
Even though we have been shunned, we still have our lives unlike the ones that have been killed for their Sabbath beliefs. There was a 'National Sunday Law' and in some places of Canada there still remains 'blue laws'. One cannot cut their grass on Sunday; fill their gas tanks up, etc. I have never heard and we will never hear of any 'blue laws' for keeping the seventh day Sabbath. Have you ever heard of a National Seventh Day Sabbath law under penalty of death by mans government? Eloah will NOT force His laws on anyone! Interesting huh?
The Challenge to you is, do you hear the call? Do you have ears to hear? Eyes to see? Can you swim up-stream, against the current, having the written 'word' of Eloah to direct and lead you? Do you have the Torah written on your heart?
We are told in the great book of Revelation, there are seven churches, do you know out of the seven churches (congregations) five are told to repent or else He will spew them out of His mouth, remove their candlestick and the sword will pierce them! There just goes the 'once saved always saved' (OSAS) doctrine. He also tells us, those who remain until the end will be saved.
During a magic show, the magician tricks his/her audience by having the audience's attention on the right hand while it is the left hand that pulls off the trick, leaving the audience to wonder in Awe!
Sometimes we focus on other things and I believe that is why Yahushua told us to 'stay awake'. Revelation 13:11, "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon." This beast appears to be righteous but is a dragon. Daniel 7:25, "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." Let us also turn to, Revelation 13:16, "And that no man might buy or sell save he that had the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name."
The Scriptures tell us that if one has the 'mark of the beast' they can buy and they can sell. But their names will not be written in the Lamb's Book Of Life. Eloah is not about confusion and He speaks simplicity to those that are His. The adversary, through men, may have programmed many of us into thinking about this or that getting our attention on others things, while we over-look the left hand?
Do scriptures tell us that there is one day out of the week where one cannot buy and sell? The great book of Nehemiah tells, 1:7, "We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandest thy servant Moses." In Nehemiah 13:15-22, we find that there is day! When one would keep the Seventh Day Sabbath a 'set apart' day, they could not bring any burden in, could not buy nor sell! So there we have it, if one would keep the Seventh Day Sabbath then they could not buy nor sell on the Seventh Day. This is very interesting.
