“Wheat Fields Already being Harvested”
As all of you know this year of 2016 began in great controversy over the barley being aviv. Yet on March 27, the wave sheaf day, we had Nehemiah Gordon in his video (go to this link and look under March 27, 2016) confirm that the Barley was indeed aviv and already reseeding itself. It was based on this report that I was confident that the month of March was when Passover should be kept. Nehemiah and I disagree when the barley must be ready. He says by the end of the 12th month and I say by the wave sheaf day. This year that was March 27.
So then, if indeed the Barley was aviv March 27, 2016 and Shavuot then is May 15, 2016, the question people have been asking me is, will the wheat be ready for Shavuot on May 15?
You all have to decide for yourselves. So here are to videos of the wheat fields in Israel. the first one is in Spanish and is videoed on May 10, 2016, near Cana of Galilee on RT 77. The second video was taken on May 22, 2016 near Bet Shemesh. It appears to me that the wheat fields are ready and are being harvested.
Now let me ask you a question.
If you are in a fancy restaurant and you order lamb chops, what would you do if they then brought you pork chops instead? What if you did not notice until you had taken a bite? Would you just eat it so as not to cause a scene and disturb the other guests or the waiter? Would you admit the mistake has been made and then have it corrected? Would you make the big scene or would you do it discretely?
Brethren the Barley was controversial this year. We advised you to keep two Passovers just in case until we saw the results of Wave Sheaf day March 27. Now we have the wheat being harvested at the time we believed Shavuot would be on May 15. I believe Yehovah is showing us when the year began by the crops in Israel. I am listening as best I can to Yehovah. Are You?
The fall Feasts will be as follows:
Friday Sept 2, 2016 to Saturday Sept 3, 2016 will be the Feast of Trumpets if the moon is sighted. If not then the next day Sunday will be the Feast of Trumpets.
Assuming the moon is sighted then Atonement will be Sunset Sept 11 to sunset Sept 12.
The Feast of Sukkot will begin on Friday evening Sept 16 and Saturday Sept 17.
The 8th Day will be Friday Sunset Sept 23, to sunset Saturday Sept 24, 2016
“The Shemitah Year 2016-2017”
In the emails about the Sabbatical year I was often sent the concerns that people felt they would die if they did not or could not eat fresh vegetables every day. Others wrote about how they were forced to take this or that prescription medication or else they too would die and they also had to have fresh veggies or else the end would come. Most of these concerns come from those who have never obeyed Yehovah and kept the Sabbatical year and stocked up on food the year before.
Recently I was shown the following article on eating greens and found the one on spruce tips very interesting. This was something my mother told me about that her father used to do while walking in the woods.
As to your own medications, I am not a Doctor nor pretend to be one. But each and everyone one of must get off our meds as soon as possible. You all know the end time prophecies we have been sharing with you. You will not be able to get medications when you are fleeing or in a prison camp. And they will become ever more increasingly hard to come by if you are in a place that is safe. SO begin to take health action now and pray to Yehovah for guidance and help.
Again I am going to share with you the commandments for the Sabbatical year, maybe each week until you have it memorized. The Sabbatical year began with the sighting of the moon on the evening of March 10, 2016.
1) Do not plant
2) Do not harvest
Lev 25:3 You shall sow your field six years, and you shall prune your vineyard six years, and gather in the fruit of it. 4 But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest to the land, a sabbath for Jehovah. You shall neither sow your field, nor prune your vineyard. 5 You shall not reap that which grows of its own accord of your harvest, neither gather the grapes of your undressed vine. It is a year of rest to the land.
3) You can eat what grows on it’s own.
Lev 25:6 And the sabbath of the land shall be food for you, for you and for your servant, and for your slave woman and for your hired servant, and for your stranger who stays with you, 7 and for your cattle, and for the beast that is in your land, shall all the increase of it be for food.
4) Stock up on food in the 6th year.
Lev 25:20 And if you shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? Behold, we shall not sow nor gather in our increase! 21 Then I will command My blessing on you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.
5) Forgive any debts people owed to you by Sukkot.
Deu 15:1 At the end of every seven years you shall make a release. 2 And this is the manner of the release. Every man who has a loan to his neighbor shall release it. He shall not exact it from his neighbor, or from his brother, because it is called Jehovah’s release. 3 You may exact it from a foreigner, but your hand shall release that which is yours with your brother,
6) Read the Torah out loud at Sukkot so all can hear it being read.
Deu 31:10 And Moses commanded them, saying: At the end of seven years, at the set time of the year of release, in the Feast of Tabernacles, 11 when all Israel has come to appear before Jehovah your God in the place which He shall choose, you shall read this Law before all Israel in their hearing. 12 Gather the people, men and women and the little ones, and your stranger who is within your gates, so that they may hear and that they may learn and fear Jehovah your God, and be careful to do all the words of this Law, 13 and that their sons who have not known may hear and learn to fear Jehovah your God, as long as you live in the land where you go over Jordan to possess it.
And by now you should also have completed all your obligations to the widows, orphan, and Levites from your tithes for the 6th year that is now past.
Deu 14:28 At the end of three years you shall bring forth all the tithe of your increase the same year, and shall lay it up inside your gates. 29 And the Levite, because he has no part nor inheritance with you, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, who are inside your gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied, so that Jehovah your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.
Ask Yehovah to bless you for having completed this task and then ask Him to bless your efforts as you keep the Sabbatical year and keep your food safe from decay or flood or hydro blackouts and from scavengers like rodents. Ask Him to protect it and to bless you for keeping His commandments.
Deu 26:12 When you have made an end of tithing all the tithes of your increase the third year, the year of tithing, and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow (that they may eat inside your gates and be filled), 13 then you shall say before Jehovah your God, I have brought away the holy things out of my house, and also have given them to the Levite, and to the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all Your commandments which You have commanded me. I have not broken Your commandments, neither have I forgotten. 14 I have not eaten of it in my mourning, neither have I putany of it away for unclean use, nor have I given of it for the dead. I have listened to the voice of Jehovah my God, and have done according to all that You have commanded me. 15 Look down from Your holy dwelling, from Heaven, and bless Your people Israel and the land which You have given us, as You swore to our fathers, a land that flows with milk and honey. 16 Today Jehovah your God has commanded you to do these statutes and judgments. You therefore shall keep and do them with all your heart and with all your soul. 17 You have today said that Jehovah is your God, and that you would walk in His ways, and keep His statutes and His commandments and His judgments, and listen to His voice. 18 And Jehovah has taken you today to be His peculiar people, as He has promised you, and to keep all His commandments, 19 and to make you high above all nations which He has made, in praise and in name and in honor, and that you may be a holy people to Jehovah your God, even as He has spoken.
May Yehovah bless each and every one of you for keeping the Sabbatical year commandment and breaking the curses that are upon our nations because we have not kept them in the past.
Do you wear the wedding ring or engagement ring Yehovah gave you or have you traded it in for another gods ring that is easier to wear and fits your lifestyle?
An interesting question. Have you ever thought of it? What is that wedding ring and when were you given it?
Last Sabbath I was reading about a lady who had lost her job for keeping the Sabbath. The company wanted her to work Friday nights and Saturdays. She refused because she wanted to keep the Sabbath holy unto Yehovah. Others began to chime in and one person said that they were done with “Yahwhism and “obsessive compulsive disorder” about preparing for the Sabbath every Friday. He then went on to say the Jews had perverted the Sabbath and that Yehshua was okay with them keeping any two days off per week.
Really? Is that what Yehshua said and is Yehovah truly pleased with any day WE CHOOSE?
Another person suggested that the Sabbath really wasn’t the true Sabbath.
And I thought of Eve in the garden of Eden when Satan caused doubt in her mind the same way these persons was also causing doubt.
Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which Jehovah God had made. And he said to the woman, Is it so that God has said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden. 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.4 And the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die, 5 for God knows that in the day you eat of it, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as God, knowing good and evil.
Many people get hoodwinked by those who come across as brethren using the name of Yehovah suggesting the Saturday Sabbath is on any other day other than on Saturday. Just like Satan suggesting to Eve she would not die if she ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. So which day is the Sabbath on? More importantly how can you prove which day it is on, so that the next time some Satanic spirit comes up to you suggesting it is done away or is on another day or that the Jews changed it or some other lame thing they will say, YOU will be able to show them where they have erred. But more importantly Satan will not be able to plant a seed in your mind with the thought or suggestion to cause you to fall away from the truth because you can’t prove it.
It is, after all, a heart condition.
Num 14:24 But My servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and has followed Me fully, I will bring him into the land into which he went. And his seed shall possess it.
Caleb had a different spirit than the other 10 spies. That spirit Caleb had was of Yehovah. If Caleb had a spirit of Yehovah, then what spirit did those other 10 spies have and yet they too were Hebrew? Caleb chose to eat from the tree of Life and the others chose to eat from the tree of Knowledge of good and evil. The spirit of Satan. It was in truth the other spies who had the OTHER Spirit, not Caleb or Joshua.
Caleb did not have the same spirit as the rest of the spies. Those suggesting the Sabbath is on another day or any other day other than Saturday are people with another Acharim spirit.
Even today we have people who call themselves brethren or followers of Yehovah that try to get you to keep another Sabbath. Any other Sabbath other than the one Yehovah told us to keep. Many today are no different than the Israelite’s that came out of Egypt or those who dwelt in the land of Israel.
Eze 20:5 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up mine hand unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and made myself known unto them in the land of Egypt, when I lifted up mine hand unto them, saying, I am the LORD your God; 6 In the day that I lifted up mine hand unto them, to bring them forth of the land of Egypt into a land that I had espied for them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands:
Eze 20:11 And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them. 12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them. 13 But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness: they walked not in my statutes, and they despised my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; and my sabbaths they greatly polluted: then I said, I would pour out my fury upon them in the wilderness, to consume them.
Eze 20:14 But I worked for My name’s sake, so that it should not be profaned before the nations in whose sight I brought them out. 15 And also I lifted up My hand to them in the wilderness, that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, flowing with milk and honey; it is the glory of all lands; 16 because they despised My judgments and walked not in My sabbaths; and they profaned My sabbaths; for their heart went after their idols. 17 But My eye spared them from destroying them, nor did I make an end of them in the wilderness. 18 But I said to their sons in the wilderness, Do not walk in the statutes of your fathers, nor observe their judgments, nor defile yourselves with their idols. 19 I am Jehovah your God. Walk in My statutes, and keep My judgments, and do them, 20 and keep My sabbaths holy; and they shall be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am Jehovah your God. 21 But the sons rebelled against Me. They did not walk in My statutes, nor kept My judgments to do them; the judgments which, if a man do, he shall even live in them; they profaned My sabbaths and I said I would pour out My fury on them, to fulfill My anger against them in the wilderness.
Eze 20:22 But I withdrew My hand and worked for My name’s sake, that it should not be profaned in the eyes of the nations, from whom I brought them out in their eyes. 23 I also lifted up My hand to them in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the nations and scatter them through the lands, 24 because they had not done My judgments, but had despised My sabbaths and had profaned My sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers’ idols.
Are these verses describing you? Are you smarter than the rest of mankind and have you figured out that the Sabbath was changed by those Jews? Have you figured out that the Sabbath is okay to keep on Sunday now that you follow Jesus or Yehshua? Have you figured out that the Sabbath is not on Saturday because it is called after some other god? Maybe you’re the really smart ones and have figure out that the Sabbath is in direct relationship to the lunar cycles and comes on the 7, 14, 21, and 28th day of the month. Or maybe you’re even smarter than those fools and you know the Sabbath comes not on the 7th but on the 8th, 15, 22, and 29th days of each lunar month. Not smart, because none of those are true.
Isa 56:1 So says Jehovah, Keep judgment and do justice; for My salvation is near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed. 2 Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it; keeping the sabbath, from defiling it; and keeping his hand from doing any evil. 3 And do not let the son of the stranger, who has joined himself to Jehovah, speak, saying, Jehovah has utterly separated me from His people. And do not let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. 4 For so says Jehovah to the eunuchs who keep My Sabbath, and choose things that please Me, and take hold of My covenant; 5 even to them will I give within My house and within My walls a hand and a name better than of sons and of daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that shall not be cut off. 6 Also the sons of the stranger, who join themselves to Jehovah to serve Him, and to love the name of Jehovah, to be His servants, everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and takes hold of My covenant; 7 even them I will bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted on My altar; for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples, 8 says the Lord Jehovah who gathers the outcasts of Israel, Yet I will gather beside him his gathered ones.
Isa 58:13 If you turn your foot because of the Sabbath, from doing what you please on My holy days, and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of Jehovah, honorable; and shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words, 14 then you shall delight yourself in Jehovah; and I will cause you to ride on the high places of the earth, and feed yourself with the inheritance of Jacob your father. For the mouth of Jehovah has spoken.
While many people will call themselves your friends and your brethren, they operate under another spirit. One that is not from Yehovah. They are the ones planting false information in your head and they do this in order to lead you away from the truth.
It is like being just a few degrees off when you fly your plane from Los Angeles to Hawaii. If you are off by a little bit, by the time you get that far out you will miss the island and run out of gas in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Satan does not care what Sabbath you keep so long as it is not the one Yehovah said to keep.
Yehovah has said He will not change ever.
Mal 3:6 For I am Jehovah, I change not. Because of this you sons of Jacob are not destroyed.
Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and forever.
So if Yehovah does not change then who did? If might just be you.
Let’s address some of these things Satan and his demonic spirits, yes even those who call themselves brethren, are trying to teach you.
Satan says: The Sabbath cannot be Saturday because it is the name of another god Saturn.
Which day of the week is the biblical Sabbath? Many are confused over the issue, but such confusion is unnecessary. Not only is the answer plain from history and the Bible, it is also clear from the names for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, in many languages.
For example, the Spanish word for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, is sabado— the same word for “Sabbath.” In fact, in more than 100 ancient and modern languages the seventh day of the week was named “Sabbath” or its equivalent. Following is a list of names for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, in 24 languages in which the root word Sabbath is still easily recognizable.
Such widespread use of forms of the word Sabbath for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, is clear evidence that speakers of these languages understood which day is the Sabbath.
Likewise, the fact that in no language do we see “Sabbath” similarly linked with Sunday, the first day of the week, is an obvious confirmation that this day was never considered the biblical Sabbath until later religious leaders tried to substitute Sunday for the true Sabbath day.
Portuguese: S ábado
We have shown you in our teaching on the Sabbatical years video that the Babylonians named the days of the week after the planets in the sky. The first day they named after the supreme object the Sun, hence Sunday. The next brightest object is the Moon and so we have MoonDay, Monday and in French it is Lundi from lunar.
Tuesday comes from Tiu, or Tiw, the Anglo-Saxon name for Tyr, the Norse god of war. Tyr was one of the sons of Odin, or Woden, the supreme deity after whom Wednesday is named. Similarly, Thursday originates from Thor, the god of thunder. Friday is derived from Frigga, the wife of Odin, representing love and beauty.
Tuesday in French is Mardi and is the planet Mars which is also found in the name of the month of March. The name Wednesday derives from two mighty but distinct gods. The Old English word for Wednesday indicates that the day was named for the Germanic god Woden. In Romance languages, the name is derived from the Roman god Mercury (for example, Wednesday is mercredi in French, miercuri in Romanian and miércoles in Spanish).
Thursday in French is Jeudi and comes from the meaning of the word Jupiter.
Friday is Vendredi in French and means the day of Venus.
Each and every day of the week was named after a planet or object in the sky. The bible calls each day the 1st day or the 2nd up to and including the 7th day of the week. But the 7th Day the bible calls the Sabbath.
The Babylonians named each day after the planets and then the Romans copied them, then our German and Norse people changed them to what we have now. Oh, what about Saturday?
The Babylonians noticed that the planet Saturn hardly moved in the sky. It seemed to them to always be in the same position and always was at rest. Venus on the other hand was always in motion, as was Mars. This is why you can see Venus just before sunrise sometimes and then other times it is the first star you see at sunset.
So they named the the 7th day, the day of rest and called it Saturnday after the planet that always seemed to be at rest Saturn. We know Saturday is the Sabbath day just from the history of the days of the week.
2nd satanic Spirit they try to poison you with.
The Jews changed the Sabbath
Mark of the beast and the keeping of the Sabbath. Which day is it.
If the Jews did change the Sabbath then there would be a record of it in history. After all, it would have been a great controversy and we would have had many groups keeping one system and others keeping the other or changed Sabbath laws. Can we find such a case in history? Yes, indeed we can but it was not the Jews who were the ones doing the changing.
Sunday actually made very little headway as a Christian day of rest until the time of Constantine in the fourth century. Constantine was emperor of Rome from AD 306 to 337. He was a sun worshiper during the first years of his reign. Later, he professed conversion to Christianity, but at heart remained a devotee of the sun. Edward Gibbon says, “The Sun was universally celebrated as the invincible guide and protector of Constantine.”
Constantine created the earliest Sunday law known to history in AD 321. It says this:
On the venerable Day of the sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country, however, persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits: because it often happens that another Day is not so suitable for grain sowing or for vine planting: lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost.ii
Chamber’s Encyclopedia says this:
Unquestionably the first law, either ecclesiastical or civil, by which the Sabbatical observance of that Day is known to have been ordained, is the edict of Constantine, 321 A.D.iii
Following this initial legislation, both emperors and Popes in succeeding centuries added other laws to strengthen Sunday observance. What began as a pagan ordinance ended as a Christian regulation. Close on the heels of the Edict of Constantine followed the Catholic Church Council of Laodicea (circa 364 AD):
Christians shall not Judaize and be idle on Saturday (Sabbath), but shall work on that Day: but the Lord’s Day, they shall especially honour; and as being Christians, shall, if possible, do no work on that day. If however, they are found Judaizing, they shall be shut out from Christ.
Today we have some who are deceiving some of you reading this News Letter. You have fallen for the lies they have told you in their misleading creation calendar. This lunar sabbath false teaching was only started in 1991 and has since then been spread by false teachers who say the Jews came back from Babylon and changed the Sabbath. They have no proof but they insist it is true, and just because they repeat it many times does not make it any truer. They have reached into the pig slime and raised this lie that stinks to high heaven. And because they say it is the right way, some of you have fallen for this pigpen of lies from Satan. Yes, it is from Satan and it is to lead you from the truth.
Satan tried to lead Yehshua away as well as the apostles. Do you not even consider that he could deceive you?
Luk 4:5 And the Devil, leading Him up into a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the Devil said to Him, All this power I will give you, and the glory of them; for it has been delivered to me. And I give it to whomever I will. 7 Therefore if you will worship me, all shall be yours. 8 And Jesus answered and said to him, Get behind me, Satan! For it is written, “You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve.”
I am saying that those who teach you to keep the Lunar Sabbath or the Creation Calendar are of another spirit that is not of Yehovah.
2Co 11:13 For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light? 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works.
Yehshua even called Peter Satan. At that time Peter was working under the spirit of Satan. Is it not possible that those who say they keep the Holy Days and Sabbath and claim to be brethren are sent to deceive you to pollute the true Sabbath of the bible and pervert it to something never heard of in history? Something only started among the Hebrew Roots people so they could be different from those Jews. Yet those Jews have keep the Sabbath continuously since the time Moses was given it at Mount Sinai.
Mat 16:22 Then Peter took Him and began to rebuke Him, saying, God be gracious to You, Lord! This shall never be to You. 23 But He turned and said to Peter, Go, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you do not savor the things that are of God, but those that are of men.
Each of us gets to choose if we will do the will of Yehovah or of Satan. Peter repented and became the lead apostle. Will some of you repent or will you remain stubborn?
Joh 6:69 And we have believed and have known that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. 70 Jesus answered them, Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? And one of you is a devil?
Joh 13:2 And when supper had ended, the Devil now having put into the heart of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon to betray Him,
Proving the Lunar Sabbath false
To prove the Lunar Sabbath false is very easy. Convincing someone they are wrong is another story.
Years ago one false teacher Bro. Arnold Bowen made an offer of $10,000 reward for anyone who could prove him wrong about the Lunar Sabbath. We did on multiple occasions and Bro. Bowen, who is not a brother, then showed us he was also a liar and never paid up and yet the claim remains online to this day. Moshe Joseph Koniuchowsky then held a meeting of their elders to answer those things we had shown them. The meeting was never published as they could not address our rebuttals. Many Satan inspired emails were sent to me by many of those elders.
It would only be years later that one of them finally woke up and saw the light of day. He wrote me to apologize and to admit the Sabbath was and only could be on Saturday. Sadly though, others were misled and then they too began to lead still more astray under this false spirit of Satan. Today this group is called Your Arms to Israel Global.
Koniuchowsky himself came on Facebook this week to warn his followers to have nothing to do with me or the things I teach. None of them will be in the Kingdom of Yehovah unless they repent of the Satanic false teachings they profess.
So let us quickly show you the easy way to show these people and their teachings false.
Yehshua was to be in the grave 3 days and 3 nights. He died on a Wednesday and was buried before sunset that same day. This was the 14th day of the first month. The day the Passover Lamb was killed. Wednesday night and Thursday day is the then the 15th day of the month. According to these Lunar Liars the Sabbath is either on the 14th or the 15th, depending on which school you belong to. So then according to them the 16 day would be Thursday Sunset and Friday day. This again according to them would be the first day of the week.
Friday Sunset and Saturday day is the 3rd night and the 3rd day Yehshua was in the grave. This day is the 17th day of the month of Nisan. Then we read in John
Joh 20:1 On the first day of the week, early in the morning and while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and noticed that the stone had been removed from the tomb.
Mat 28:1 After the Sabbaths, around dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to take a look at the burial site.
Luk 24:1 But at early dawn on the first day of the week, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.
Mar 16:1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices to go and anoint Jesus. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had just come up, they were going to the tomb.
Here you have all four gospel accounts. All four first hand witnesses to the event of that time. And all four agree that the women came to the tomb on the FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK. The first day of the week comes after the 7th day of the week. The first day of the week was the 18th day of the month of Nisan. So it is absolutely impossible for the Sabbath to be on the 14th or the 15th because we have just shown you from your own gospels that the Sabbath when Yehshua came out of the grave was the 17th day of the month of Nisan.
In response to this evidence Moshe has come out with this brilliant peace of conjecture.
The year Yahushua died all Israel rested on The Shabbat at the same time as described in the gospels. That shows that the 18th of Aviv was universally recognized as a Shabbat and there was no need to change or fix anything. The only way to get Aviv 18 as a Shabbat on all calendars lunar or solar is for the people to consider day 4 week one as Aviv 1 with the Shabbats being, 4, 11,18 and 25 of Aviv..selah!
So now you do not need to keep the 7, 14, 21, 28 days lunar or the 8, 15, 22, 29 either. Now we are going to keep the 4, 11, 18, and 25 just for the year Yehshua died and now revert back to the other two. We have a saying at work. Bull Crap baffles brains. The more you confound the truth, the more people will believe the lie.
We are told in Lev 23 to count 50 days from the Morrow after the Sabbath. We are told to count 7 Sabbaths and then the morrow after the 7th Sabbath is the 50th day.
Lev 23:15 And you shall count to you from the next day after the sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete. 16 To the next day after the seventh sabbath you shall number fifty days. And you shall offer a new food offering to Jehovah.
When you count from the wave sheaf day, the Sunday after the Sabbath during the Days of Unleavened Bread, we arrive at Shavuot 50 days later. We have all done this and know it works. But the lunar Sabbath confounders tell us that the 1st day is a non day and the 29 day is a non day. If the month is 30 days then the 30th day is also a non day. A non day means according to them a day that is not counted. It does not exist. Huh?
So when they count from the Wave Sheaf day, the end of the first month come and you get a 29th day and maybe even a 30th day. Then you have the second month with the 1st day not being counted and also the 29th and maybe again the 30th day all not being counted. Next is the 3rd month when Shavuot is to be, but the 1st day of this month is a non day. When you add this all up then you have the regular 50 days of counting plus possibly two days for the 1st month. Plus 3 possible days for the 2nd month. And one more day for the 3rd month for a total of 56 days at the most and 54 days if each month was in fact 29 days in length.
No matter how you do the math it is either 54 or 56 day and never 50 as Yehovah commands.
The response to this was to make the counting of 50 days begin after Shavuot. I forget how they reason this and frankly, I just do not care.
If you want to read the rest of the information we have on Lunar Sabbath Lie then go to 4 articles on it. Again it never began until 1991. Before that time there is no other groups in history having ever kept it.
We have well documented evidence of when Constantine changed the Saturday Sabbath to Sunday. And it was from this time on that Jewish converts stopped. Before that time they were believing in a Messiah that kept the Saturday Sabbath the same as they did. Now that this was change they stop believing those keeping Sunday. We have no evidence from history about any Jewish Lunar Sabbatarians. The reason we have no such facts is because it was only invented in 1991.
What difference does it make?
It makes the world of difference.
We quoted Ezekiel 20 where Yehovah was bemoaning the fact that Israel had profaned His Sabbaths, including the Holy Days of Lev 23.
The mark of Yehovah is the Sabbath, the Holy Days of Lev 23 and the Sabbatical years. The way you keep these is the identity by which you are SEALED by Yehovah. It is the mark on your hand, the way you earn a living by resting on the Sabbath and Holy Days. And it is the mark in your forehead, the way you study on the Sabbath and stop doing your own business and think and meditate on Yehovah’s word.
The mark of the Beast or the mark of Satan is any other holiday that is not found in Lev 23. The very first Holy Day in Lev 23 is the weekly Sabbath. Satan’s mark would be Sunday, or keeping the Sabbath according to the lunar cycle, changing times and laws of Yehovah. Keeping the Sabbath at the wrong time or keeping the Holy Days at the wrong time or keeping the Sabbatical year at the wrong time is not the mark of Yehovah, but they are the mark of Satan. Again Satan does not care what day you keep as long as it is not the one Yehovah said to keep.
If you have bitten into the pork chop thinking it was a lamb chop but now know better, then it is time now to repent and begin to obey Yehovah and keep the times He has set aside to meet us on.
Ascension Sunday is in truth the day Yehshua ascended up to heaven. It was wave sheaf day and can be found in Lev 23. Pentecost Sunday is the day the Holy Spirit was given to the Apostles and it too can be found in Lev 23 as Shavuot. If you as a Christian keep these two days of Lev 23 but not the rest of Lev 23 then I ask you why not.
If you say that Jesus nailed them all to the tree, then I ask you why you keep those two? I also will ask you to read the following verses.
Joh 14:15 If you love Me, keep My commandments.
Joh 14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me. And he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will reveal Myself to him.
1Jn 2:3 And by this we know that we have known Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, I have known Him, and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps His Word, truly in this one the love of God is perfected. By this we know that we are in Him. 6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk even as He walked.
1Jn 3:22 And whatever we ask, we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. 23 And this is His commandment, that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He gave us commandment. 24 And he who keeps His commandment dwells in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit which He gave to us.
1Jn 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, whenever we love God and keep His commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments, and His commandments are not burdensome.
Does this sound like the commandments are nailed to the tree? I don’t think so. It is time now to repent and return to the Creator of the Universe. Keep the Sabbath and Holy Days and Sabbatical years at the proper time and be blessed.
By Keeping the Sabbath, we are showing Yehovah our wedding ring with Him each week and each Holy Day and each Sabbatical year. Those who choose not to wear His ring, who choose to keep another holiday are wearing the ring of Satan who does not love anyone. Choose life and choose carefully.
