become a part of Israel ("the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven”), as Paul writes in Romans 11: 17 “and thou, being a wild olive tree, wast grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree.” Galatians 3:29 " For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith ; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: ...""And if ye be Messiah's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."
Yahshua said in Mathew 7:13-14"Enter ye in at the strait [closely defined] gate : for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many [Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven ; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.... Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them , I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity".] there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it".
In Acts 2:38 “then Peter said unto them, ‘ Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Yahshua Messiah for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Spirit. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as our God shall call’.”
“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come
to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth
pass, one jot or one tittle shall
in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break
one of these least commandments, and shall
teach men so, shall be called the least
kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall
do and teach them , the same shall be
called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
5 : 17-19.“
the scripture can not be broken”
"The LAW of is perfect, converting the soul..."
19:7. "The mercy of YHWH is
from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness
unto children's children; to such as keep his covenant, and to those that
remember his commandments to do them."
The SABBATH is mentioned as important when "the abomination of desolation [ happens] pray that your flight be not in winter, neither on the SABBATH day". -- Matthew 24: 15,20
question that needs to be answered, is why
would the Messiah so close to his death
still be telling his disciples how important to him, and his FATHER ,the
commandments were, and that of keeping; them, if they were being done away
with in a few hours at his death , as dispensationalist's teach?
Luke 23:54-56 "And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on. And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid. And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment." The Saviour was dead; yet the Sabbath is observed. The Sabbath is here kept after Messiah's death. Nowhere in scripture is there a passage where the Messiah had ever told these people not to keep the Sabbath "according to the commandment." That's our cue, that the importance of the fourth commandment didn't change.
Yahshua was the sacrificial
Passover lamb that shed his blood once and for all for sin; only did
away with the sacrificial process in the Law, which had been necessary to
that point in time.
Also “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them , the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5 : 17-19.
“It is lawful to do well
on the SABBATH days” Matthew12:12.
not accept what God “has
made for man”Mark2:27,the
seventh day Sabbath ; instead of substituting the counterfeit pagan day of
the 'sun' ;(which scripture doesn’t even once sanction) and “making
the word of God of none effect through your traditions.” Mark7:13
|In Matthew 28: 1-6
we find that “in the end of the
SABBATH before the dawn of the first day” (“yet dark” John
20:1 ) an
earth quake had occurred ; the stone had been rolled away ; and Yahshua had
risen .This day was given the pagan name of Easter.
In Mark16:7 "A young man" [told the women], "he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him as he said unto you”. “As they went, ... Jesus met them” and said “go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me”.
The disciples (even Peter) did
not obey Yahshua’s instructions, and so in John20:19 “the
same day at evening, being the first day of the sabbath week [a
day they could have been traveling] ...the
disciples were assembled
for fear of
the Jews, came Jesus as they sat at meat and he upbraided them with
their unbelief and hardness of heart”
In John 20:26 “after eight days” [not on the eighth day (‘sun’ day) as taught by many false teachers, but after; Jesus appeared to the disciples including Thomas, who are still in Jerusalem instead of Gallilee. (This is confirmed by John's previous pattern writing John 4:40 "he [Jesus] abode there two days." and in verse 43 "after two days" which would be the third day, "he departed") No ‘sun’ day worship service here!
|Shavuot (day of Pentecost) arrives 50 days after the passover in Acts 2:1. The disciples were waiting as directed in Luke 24:49 ; they were baptized with the holy spirit ; Peter preached ; and over 3000 souls were added to the church . “and they continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread” Acts2:46.||
We read in Exodus 32 of Moses return from the mount with the Torah (Shavuot commemorates the anniversary of that day). He threw down the tablets of stone; did some inquiring to see what was happening and why; destroyed the golden calf. Then he said: "Who is on the Lord's side?" The Levites were commanded to seek out the traitors, and three thousand souls perished that day. In Acts 2, Peter preached to the devout Jews who were in Jerusalem for Shavuot (Pentecost) and three thousand souls were saved.
