Remember the Sabbath & Keep it holy
February 15, 2007 - From YahuShua HaMashiach, Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior – Wisdom Given to Timothy Regarding The Sabbath, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
If such an one, beloved of The Lord and in whom He dwells, dedicates any other day which The Lord did not command, because he is ignorant of the truth or because of false teaching, then to The Lord that day is indeed dedicated… This is acceptable and well pleasing to The Lord. And to this same one shall it be accounted as righteousness according to their heart, though they remain in error according to the fourth Commandment, having been led astray by others who were also led astray by their forefathers before them.
Yet if another, whose knowledge is true according to the fourth Commandment, who has not been led astray by the churches of men, comes forward and says, “I also dedicate this certain day to The Lord”, and it is the correct day, the seventh (Saturday), according to God’s fourth Commandment, proclaiming his own righteousness before men, also judging those he perceives as less worthy because of their error, to this man shall it be accounted as shame, though he has knowledge of the truth and retains no error according to the Commandment. For though he has kept the Sabbath outwardly, also testifying by his mouth, he did not keep it inwardly in his heart, nor to God was it truly dedicated… A mere outward display to gain honor for himself, in an effort to elevate himself above others, having not kept the Sabbath at all. This man shall surely be abased in the Day of Reckoning.
Yet the man who remains humble, with a sincere heart, Shall surely be exalted though he is in error…
And from this place shall he in time come into true knowledge, In keeping the seventh day holy, as it is written… For he had already kept it in his heart.
So then, because the intent of his heart was to please The Lord, so also shall his faith come into completion in the keeping of the fourth Commandment of The Father, as it is written. For it is far easier to move a man whose heart is in the right place to a new day, than to move a man with a wrong heart to a place that is right, if he feels he already abides there.
Yet remember this… All who come into true knowledge, having received the love of the truth, must walk in its ways and no longer in their own, nor in the false doctrines of men in the churches.
Thus says The Lord Jesus, YahuShua HaMashiach… Walk uprightly in Me, in My footsteps, abiding in My doctrine, according to the faith and knowledge you have received in the truth. Progress toward perfection, seeking on by trust, not according to the traditions or commandments of men.
Seek and you shall surely find… For all you need is written for your edification in the Scriptures of Truth… And behold, even by these many Letters, Written in the Volumes of Truth, Have I set all these crooked paths straight.
