Facing eternity with the Pope!

Exodus 31:12And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 
13“Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. 
14You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people. 
15Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 
16Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. 
17It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’”

Here is why I am always coming to you with an exhortation regarding the keeping of God’s Sabbath, rather than Sunday, because it is according to the Word of God.

“Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you.” (Vs 13)

He is the one who sanctifies us, and sets us aside, making us holy. And here is what we don’t seem to grasp, that we are dependents! We exist because of Him, not in spite of Him, and because of that we are in a life or death situation here.

 “You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people. 
Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.” (Vs 14, 15)

We cannot violate His Sabbath and live or remain as a part of the body of Messiah. But the problem here is that we don’t follow the Word of God, instead in our vast wisdom we prefer to follow the words of mortal men.

A Sunday Sabbath is fictitious, YHWH would never change His Sabbath day.  “For I am the Lord, I do not change; (Malachi 3:6) Think about it, are we willing to die over a Pagan Sabbath? That what it is, it was changed by the Roman Catholic Church in 321 AD. 

So, we will die because we prefer to follow the edict of a Pagan Pope? That just does not make good sense!

Therefore, the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’”

Ever since the Creation, God established His Sabbath. It is holy to Him, a set apart time when He comes together with His Children. And the entire assembly of traditional Christian churches show up a day late and expect to fellowship with Him?

What happens when we show up for an appointment with anyone a day late. Your doctor might give us another appointment. Or that job interview might just hire someone else who is more responsible. But God just waits until the day of judgment.

Had you repented and changed, then there would be no problem, for Yahshua is merciful and will forgive us. But when have we ever repented of violating This commandment?

 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 
9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 
10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 
11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.” (Exodus 20:8-11)

So, in this case we would be well advised to distance ourselves from those false teachers who are insisting that we keep some other Sabbath, than the one that God ordained. It is as much a suicide as putting a gun to our head.

Violating God’s Sabbath is as much a sin as murder or adultery.

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

Shalom my friends,
