The first 4 Commandments tell us how to love Yahweh our God. The rest of the 10 Commandments tell us how to love other people. If the 10 Commandments are not written in our hearts with a branding iron, we must ask ourselves: Do I really have the Holy Spirit ?? Do I listen and obey the Holy Spirit ?? Does my church teach from the Bible ?? Do I read my Bible enough ?? Today`s Christians have totally forsaken nearly all of the 10 Commandments.
Yahweh our God`s part in Salvation: 1. Yahweh our God sent His Son Yeshua (Jesus). 2. Yeshua (Jesus) shed His Blood. 3. Yeshua (Jesus) died for our sins. 4. Yeshua (Jesus) rose again on the 3rd day. Human beings` part in Salvation: 1. Hear the Gospel. 2. Believe the Gospel. 3. Repent of sin and turn back to Yahweh our God. 4. Reach up to water baptism into Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ). 5. Get a gift of the Holy Spirit. 6. Confess faith openly. 7. Remain faithful and obey Yeshua (Jesus).
We can without fail call our earthly father as father. It is expected of us, by the 5th Command, to honour our parents everyday alike, irrespective of the circumstance. Yeshua (Jesus) harshly attacked a custom of the Jews, for they called the rabbis as fathers. He attacked similarly against all religious present-day Christian leaders too. We all have just One Heavenly Father and He is in heaven.
The Holy Convocations of Yahweh: When Yahweh says we are to celebrate His Feasts, He uses a Hebrew word that means appointed times or appointments. They are the Holy Convocations or Sacred Assemblies of Yahweh. There are 7 festivals that Yahweh prescribed in the Bible- 4 in the spring and 3 in the fall and the Shabbaths all year around. We can find them in the Leviticus 23.
We shall not throw the Julian/ Gregorian calendar away. But we need to learn God’s Calendar and use His days and ways to worship, honor and draw close to Him. It is the same Calendar which Yeshua (Jesus) used. The lack of knowledge of His calendar has led to so many misunderstandings and mistakes in our walk with Him.
There was a time in my life when I did not read the Bible very much. I was seeking Yeshua (Jesus) but in all the wrong places. I only visited different Christian religious events. They were very entertaining to spend my time- but the Bible were in bit part. Preaching and teaching was lousy, very lousy. On the other hand, collecting money was very intensive. After all, there I realized that if I want to know the truth in the Bible, I have to read it. Regularly, often and much. I started with Yeshua`s (Jesus`) words in the 4 gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.
The Palestine does not exist- never was or never shall be. The word Palestine is derived from the Hebrew word "peleshet". Roughly translated to mean "rolling" or "migratory" or "wandering". The term was used to describe the inhabitants of the land to the northeast of Egypt - the Philistines. The Philistines were enemies of God`s chosen people Israelites- for example Goliath.
“The Sabbath was made for man.” (Mark 2:27) Yeshua/ Jesus said this. It was “made” in the Garden of Eden before it was “written” down on Mount Sinai. The Sabbath was “made” for “man,” not just for Jews.
Thou shalt not Lent !! Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, Moundy Thursday or Lent are not mentioned in the Bible- not even once. Yeshua/ Jesus did not observe them. None of the apostles observed them.
Only a few people know that Valentine’s Day is originally a Catholic celebration. But there are even fewer individuals who know its earlier pagan roots.
Why is the beginning of our new year placed in the middle of a dead winter ?? How did the celebration of New Year’s Eve begin ?? And where did the many customs surrounding it originate ?? And also; why is the Rosh Hashana celebrated as the Jewish New Year worldwide in the fall (September- October) ?? Are they in the Bible in the “Feasts of the Lord” ??
We should live a holy life and follow the directions, instructions or teachings of the Bible because we are already saved- NOT to be saved !!
