Just Some Words................

Hey it is 2 Kislev...yep...another month. The days are truly going by very quickly. When I was young I would always hear the older people saying..."the older you get the faster your life goes." I now believe they were right! BUT....there is also an increase in the movement of time by our Elohim. How else will all things come to pass? I believe He slowed things down at one time and now He has speeded them up.

I found this very interesting and it goes along with the thoughts I have in my head......

Observatories on 5 continents to scan skies for extraterrestrial life

A global search for extraterrestrial intelligence
It's the 50th anniversary of Project Ozma, a pioneering search for extraterrestrial Intelligence experiment to search for signs of life in distant solar systems through interstellar radio waves.

The scientific search for extraterrestrial intelligence went global this weekend as observatories in 13 nations on five continents trained their telescopes on several promising star systems.

While they don't expect their one-day joint effort will find the kind of intentionally produced signal from afar that enthusiasts have been seeking for decades, participants say the undertaking illustrates just how far the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI, has come.

Frank Drake made the world's first such observations at the Green Bank radio telescope in West Virginia 50 years ago, listening on a single-channel receiver that took in radio waves one frequency at a time. Today's technology allows scientists to receive radio signals at millions of different frequencies per minute, in addition to searching for laser-like bursts of light communication using optical telescopes.
The international star-viewing extravaganza, the first of its kind, comes at a time of fast-paced discovery in the science of exoplanets, bodies that orbit suns beyond our solar system.

Last month alone brought the announcement of the first Earth-sized planet found that appeared to be potentially habitable, as well as a study from top scientists in the field which concluded that the number of Earth-sized planets in the Milky Way alone could be counted in the tens of billions.

Suddenly, the prospects for finding planets that might have complex life and environments to support it appear to have brightened. Scientists well in the future may still conclude Earth is the only planet that harbors life, but discoveries in the last few years seem to increase the odds that we are not alone after all.
"This is a real coming of age for exoplanets and for SETI," said Drake, who remains active in the field and whose founding of the science of SETI five decades ago was being commemorated as well over the weekend.

"It shows SETI has gone truly international, and it's happening when our knowledge about planets beyond Earth is just exploding," he said. "We made predictions based on weak evidence 50 years ago and now a lot of that is, very satisfyingly, getting hard scientific support."

Practical matter
Doug Vakoch, a SETI Institute scientist who helped organize the effort, said the coordinated observing is probably most important for its practical side.
"What this weekend really does is begin the process of making it possible to track a possible SETI signal around the globe," he said. "If a signal is detected, it has to be confirmed and followed, and now we're setting up a network to do that."
The participating observatories are in Italy, India, Argentina, Australia, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, South Korea, Sweden, the Netherlands, and several in the United States and Japan. Officials at the largest radio telescope in the world, Arecibo, will also participate.

The idea for the unprecedented global observation was initiated by Shin-ya Narusawa, director of Nishi-Harima Astronomical Observatory in western Japan - one of the largest observatories in that country. Narusawa organized a many-centered SETI observation in Japan last fall, and was invited to present his results at the biannual NASA-sponsored astrobiology conference held this spring.

There, Narusawa met SETI Institute President Jill Tarter, he proposed a bilateral and then international observation, and before long 19 observatories and research centers in 13 nations had joined in.

The telescopes will be trained in a coordinated way on a number of star systems, including Tau Ceti and Epsilon Eridani - the nearest systems in the Northern Hemisphere and the two that Drake observed 50 years ago in what he called Project Ozma, a reference to the princess in "The Wizard of Oz.'' (Keeping with the theme, the weekend's effort is called Project Dorothy for the heroine of the book.)
"These two stars were the best SETI targets a half-century ago," Narusawa said. "They remain the symbol of the project Ozma and so are two of the target stars for Project Dorothy."

But with more than 500 exoplanets identified in the past 15 years and 700 more awaiting confirmation, he said, the observation can be far more directed and ambitious. Some will include stellar systems that have planets which appear to be located the right distance from their suns to support life, he said.
'Earth is tiny'

While Narusawa is a scientist, he said he had another, non-scientific reason for organizing the global event. "When we do this worldwide observation," he said in an e-mail from Japan, "citizens remember the Earth is tiny and we are the same earthlings."

The SETI enterprise has, from the start, had many skeptics - scientists who say it involves looking for a needle in a haystack, and at times legislators who have been outraged that for a short time the effort received federal funding. That came to a quick end in 1993 and SETI has relied on private funding since, although the institute was allowed to compete again for federal grants late in the Bush administration.

Its biggest coup has been to win almost $30 million from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen to build a large array of radio telescopes in the mountains of northern California. The Hat Creek array and its 42 radio telescopes are jointly run by the SETI Institute and the University of California at Berkeley, and are used for SETI observing and more traditional radio astronomy. The facility was one of the 19 to participate in Project Dorothy.

With new scientific discoveries announced regularly that support key assumptions that Drake and SETI made decades ago, and now with a global network of astronomers who agree that SETI constitutes solid and important science, Drake said he has never been more optimistic about ultimately finding intelligent life beyond Earth. Although 50 years of SETI observing has yet to come up with a signal, he said, the percentage of stars actually studied is minuscule.

He also said it's time for people to consider an initially unsettling understanding that flows from the work being done by exoplanet hunters and by SETI - that distant planets are as much a part of nature as Earth is.

"Who knows what kind of life we'll ultimately find out there?" Drake said. "It won't be like our life because it will have evolved in response to different kinds of forces. But there's no doubt about it - the underlying chemistry will be the same and that means it will be basically an extension of what we have here."

Jeremiah 31:31-37 (New International Version)

31 “The days are coming,” declares the LORD,
“when I will make a new covenant
with the people of Israel
... and with the people of Judah.
32 It will not be like the covenant
I made with their ancestors
when I took them by the hand
to lead them out of Egypt,
because they broke my covenant,
though I was a husband to them,”
declares the LORD.
33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel
after that time,” declares the LORD.
“I will put my law in their minds
and write it on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
34 No longer will they teach their neighbor,
or say to one another, ‘Know the LORD,’
because they will all know me,
from the least of them to the greatest,”
declares the LORD.
“For I will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more.”

35 This is what the LORD says,
he who appoints the sun
to shine by day,
who decrees the moon and stars
to shine by night,
who stirs up the sea
so that its waves roar—
the LORD Almighty is his name:
36 “Only if these decrees vanish from my sight,”
declares the LORD,
“will Israel ever cease
being a nation before me.”

37 This is what the LORD says:

“Only if the heavens above can be measured
and the foundations of the earth below be searched out
will I reject all the descendants of Israel
because of all they have done,”
declares the LORD.


Man has always had the brain power and the ability to reason so he could have had all of the technology that we have today a long long time ago. And there is some thought and even proof that man did make a few discoveries into advanced machinery...such as rudimentary computers and electricity. He went from being land bound to discovering how to make small boats so he could travel on the rivers and lakes around him then ships so he could sail the earth's oceans and seas and he discovered new lands and peoples.

Man is crafty....he thinks and reasons...but he does not always strive to do as our Elohim would have him do but does what he purposes in his own heart. Man is also stubborn by nature to desire to be in control of his own destiny.

It has been said that the voyage of Christopher Columbus to find new lands can be compared to man's space travel and if not for the Dark Ages Christopher Columbus would have been traveling to the moon instead of discovering America.

Some research found that a scientist had discovered steam power* in those long ago times...imagine the industrial revolution happening in the 600's!

We are seeing more and more news stories about UFO's not as it used to be reported but as if they ARE TRULY REAL ALIENS FROM ANOTHER PLANET! And it is becoming politically correct to call them Astronauts! Why? To get mankind used to the idea that these ET's are really from another world who maybe even came here in ancient times.

UN to appoint Earth contact for aliens

THE United Nations was set today to appoint an obscure Malaysian astrophysicist to act as Earth?s first contact for any aliens that may come visiting.

Mazlan Othman, the head of the UN’s little-known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), is to describe her potential new role next week at a scientific conference at the Royal Society’s Kavli conference centre in Buckinghamshire.

She is scheduled to tell delegates that the recent discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars has made the detection of extraterrestrial life more likely than ever before – and that means the UN must be ready to coordinate humanity’s response to any “first contact”.

From the Vatican....
One of the pope’s astronomers would happily baptize an alien if asked -- “no matter how many tentacles it has.”

Guy Consolmagno, a trained astronomer and planetary scientist at the Vatican’s observatory, discussed a slew of topics at the British Science Festival in Birmingham last weekend, noting that the Vatican was more up to date with the latest scientific developments than most realized.

“You’d be surprised,” he told the Guardian. An avid science-fiction reader, Consolmagno reproached the historical treatment of Galileo, the man who discovered that the Earth indeed travels around the sun.

He even complimented Stephen Hawking -- despite Hawking’s recent comments asserting that physics effectively replaced the need for God. Consolmagno called Hawking a “brilliant physicist.”

Intelligent design, he also noted, was a useless compromise that’s another form of “the God of the gaps,” calling it pseudoscience and “bad theology.”

Though he concedes the odds of finding and communicating with other intelligent life is essentially zero, Consolmagno would welcome the event. “Any entity -- no matter how many tentacles it has -- has a soul,” he said. Asked whether or not he’d baptize an alien, Consolmagno replied: “Only if they asked.”

Cosolmagno spoke at the science festival while the Pope was making his own visit to discuss science, which he called a complete coincidence.

Our Elohim gave us freedom of choice and some took it to the extreme...worshipping graven images of pagan gods and goddesses who are directly from Hasatan. He is the author of ALL lies and he desires all to bow to him. Hasatan knows what he is doing.."Let us give man a whisper in his ear to measure the heavens and search the depths of the oceans. He will break the promises all by himself."

So man in his own image wants to become as god and look to the heavens to measure it and go to the depths of the oceans and search them out because he can. This is the way of Hasatan. He desired to be as our Elohim. He was jealous when YHWH made man in His image. What better way to do away with this nuisance than to trick him into doing the things that are in direct violation to the Instructions of YHWH?

So our Elohim in His infinite wisdom slowed time down and man did not advance as he could have. Now, because man has achieved so much in just the past few hundred years time had been speeded up and we are in the last days...our Elohim has made a way and man has not accomplished what the evil one intended nor will he. Our Elohim will guide and protect us!

Cheshvan 23..or on the Pagan calender...October 31st...HELLOWEEN!

Hello my friends..and maybe family? To those who have left comments I have read them..thank you so much and I know I keep saying, with each blog, that I am going to be more diligent in writing and it always ends up that I do not keep my word. Forgive me and I say to you I am going to TRY and write about relevent things and maybe even about the goings on in my life!

Now..on with the blog............
Yes..we are in the beginnings of the pagan holidays....their Helloween is today. What do I think? Well, I am disgusted by it but as a former pagan Christian who enjoyed...NO....LOVED...this holiday..I can only speak from experience and from the truth I now know.

My life no longer runs by the Roman Gregorian calender so today is 23 Cheshvan according to our Elohim's calender. If you desire to look at one, scope it out to see what it is all about, you can find His calenders at Chabad.org or Aish.com.

I must say this though, while my house and my life runs by this calender, I do keep track of the world's calender. In fact, any of the Jewish calenders you find will also have the Gregorian along with its own dates. I keep track it because of work and school and because not everyone in my family is walking in the Way of Elohim.

As I saiD, we are now in the beginning of the pagan holidays....Halloween, Christmas, New Years, Velentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter. And of course there are others but these are the main ones.

I will address Thanksgiving briefly, though. I have always felt it alright to celebrate because it is NOT a Catholic pagan holiday. It was and is a day of thanksgiving to G-d and was patterned after the our Elohim's Sukkot or Feast of Tabernacles. Some feel that because it is Christian that it should not be celebrated but as long as there are no connotations of paganism I and my family will continue to have a Thanksgiving meal together (I will, however be looking into it.)

Now onto the holiday at hand....Halloween or as I prefer....HELL-O-WEEN!

The following was taken from the PENSACOLA NEWS JOURNAL on October 24, 1994 in the children's section called "Chalk Talk":

Vocabulary - Costume (Kas toom): The style of dress, including accessories, of a certain country, period or profession.

Druid (droo id): A member of a Celtic religious order in ancient Britain, Ireland and France.

Halloween (Halo ween): The evening of Oct. 31, which is followed by All Saints' Day.

Samhain (Sa man): The demonic god of death worshipped by the Druids.

Q. When and where did the customs that eventually evolved into Halloween begin?

A. Three hundred years before JESUS was born; among a group of people called the Celtics who lived throughout the British Isles, Scandinavia and western Europe.

Q. Who started it?

A. A secret society of priests and pagans called the Druids, who served the demonic god of death -- Samhain.

Q. How did the custom begin?

A. Each year on Oct. 31, the Druids celebrated the eve of the Celtic new year with the Festival of Samhain.

Q. What did the Druid priests do during the festival?

A. They would go from house to house demanding all sorts of foods to offer to Samhain. If the village people would not give them the foods, they would speak a curse over the home. History claims then that someone in the family would die within a year. This was the origin of "trick or treat."

Q. Where did the Jack-O-Lantern come from?

A. When the Druids were going house to house seeking food for Samhain, they would carry a large turnip that had been hollowed out. A face was usually carved on one side and a candle was placed inside to provide light as they walked from house to house. The Druids believed a SPIRIT inhabited the turnips and helped the Druids carry out their spells. The name of the SPIRIT eventually became JOCK.

Q. How did pumpkins come to be used and where did the name Jack-O-Lantern come from?

A. When the practice came to America in the 18th and 19th centuries, turnips weren't that prominent, so the pumpkin was substituted. JOCK became Jack, who lives in the lantern or Jack-O-Lantern.

Q. Where did the name Halloween come from?

A. During the ninth century, the pope declared Nov. 1 be called All Saints' Day and would be set aside to honor all the martyred saints of the Catholic church. Oct. 31 became the eve of All Saints' Day. The Mass said on All Saints' Day was the Allhallowmas. Over the years, the evening before All Saints' Day became known as All Hallow's Eve, All Hallowed Eve, All Hallow E'en and finally Halloween.

Q. Where did the tradition of dressing in costumes come from?

A. In Ireland, during the festival of Samhain, children would dress like IMPS and fairies to lead the ghosts and goblins out of town after the Feast of Samhain. In England, after All Saints' Day was created, children would dress in each other's clothes and go door-to-door begging for soul cakes.

No matter what you think of halloween, know that it is the very highest satanic holy day. As a Christian, you should not be observing it in any way, especially IN your church. The catholic church is responsible for this day to be placed in the church.

Halloween has never been a Christian holiday, and it has no place in the life of a born again Believer in JESUS CHRIST. In fact, it is an abomination to God, and we should take our stand firmly against it. As we look at its history, we find that its roots go deep into heathenism, paganism, satanism and the occult; and its modern expression is no better.

Celtic New Year
October 31 is the most important day in the satanic year. [It is known as the devil's birthday.] It marks the Celtic new year. It was the end of the growing season. It became a festival of death. On this day, the god of the Celtics was to have called up the spirits of the wicked dead who had died during the past year. At the same time, other evil spirits arose and went about the countryside harassing the people. On October 31, the Celtics expected to be harassed by ghosts, evil spirits and demons; and it was no fun and games to them. They would light bonfires to guide the spirits to their own town and to ward off evil spirits.

The Celtics had priests called druids. On October 31, the druids went from house to house demanding certain foods, and all those who refused were cursed. The people were tormented by means of magic. As they went, the druids carried large turnips which they had hollowed out and on which they had carved demon faces as charms. Each one was believed to contain the demon spirit that personally led or guided that priest: his little god.

Those who practiced fortune telling and divination found that this was the night that they had the most success. They called upon satan to bless their efforts. One form of divination was to put apples in a tub and bob for them. The one who first successfully came up with one without putting them in his teeth was to have good luck throughout the year. They would then peel the apples and throw the peeling over their shoulders and then quickly look around. They expected to see a vision or an apparition of the one they were to marry.

These things happened several centuries before CHRIST. Sacrifices were made to the gods, especially the god of death - Samhain (pronounced Sah win). Sacrifices all the way from vegetable to human were offered. This went on and on, and, in some parts of the world, still goes on today.

In the 8th century, the Pope, in an effort to get the people to quit the festival of Sam hain, invented All Saints Day (Nov. 1). This was an attempt to get the people to turn away from the horrible observance of Sam hain. All Saints Day was intended to honor the martyrs of the Roman persecutions. It did not work! It never works to Christianize a pagan holiday. The holy and the profane do not mix.

In the Middle Ages, there was a great revival of satanic practices and witchcraft and magic - like there is today. During this time the belief developed that witches traveled on broomsticks to the black Sabbaths to worship satan on October 31. They were guided by spirits in the form of black cats. The Druids worshiped cats believing them to be reincarnated evil people.

This festival of death has survived all the efforts of the church to stamp it out. The church is joining the opposition by celebrating this festival.

All Saints Day became All Hallows Day. Hallow means holy or sacred. October 31 is the evening before All Hallows Day and came to be called in the western world all hallows evening and then all hallows een. Een is an abbreviation for evening. Finally, the word was reduced to the way we have it today, Halloween. That's where the name came from, and even if it is called all hallows evening, it has nothing to do with Christian faith, and it never did.

Now let's look at the present day celebration of Halloween. Isn't the whole theme one of darkness, death, fear, threats, destruction and evil? There are witches, broomsticks, bats, owls, ghosts, skeletons, death, and monsters. You dress up your children as demons and witches and ghouls and monsters and werewolves and send them out into the street in the darkness to reenact the Druids' practice of demanding food from people under threat of tricks (or curses) if they don't comply.

You take, not a turnip, but a pumpkin and carve demon faces in it and decorate with it.

At Halloween there will be apple bobbing, divination, fortune telling, haunted houses, candles lit and spirits called up. There will be seances and ouija boards in the name of fun and excitement. There will be sacrifices of dogs, cats, rats, chickens, goats and even humans!

You say, "Well, we don't take it seriously." But the devil does and so does G-d.*

Here is some more about this evil day.............
History traces Halloween back to the ancient religion of the Celtics.

The Celtic people were very conscious of the spiritual world and

had their own ideas of how they could gain access to it – such

as by helping their over 300 gods to defeat their enemies in

battle, or by imitating the gods in showing cleverness and


Their two main feasts were Beltane at the beginning of summer (May 1),

and Samhain at the end of summer (Nov. 1). They believed Samhain

was a time when the division between the two worlds became very

thin, when hostile supernatural forces were active and ghosts

and spirits were free to wander as they wished.

The Celtic priests who carried out the rituals in the open air were

called Druids, members of pagan orders in Britain, Ireland and

Gaul, who generally performed their rituals by offering

sacrifices, usually of animals, but sometimes of humans, in

order to placate the gods; ensuring that the sun would return

after the winter; and frightening away evil spirits. To the

Celtics, the bonfire represented the sun and was used to aid the

Druid in his fight with dark powers. The term bonfire comes from

the words “bone fire,” literally meaning the bones of sacrificed

animals, sometimes human, were piled in a field with timber and

set ablaze. All fires except those of the Druids were

extinguished on Samhain and householders were levied a fee to

relight their holy fire which burned at their altars. During the

Festival of Samhain, fires would be lit which would burn all

through the winter and sacrifices would be offered to the gods

on the fires. This practice of burning humans was stopped around

1600, and an effigy was sometimes burned instead.

Samhain was the supreme night of demonic jubilation. Spirits of the dead

would rise out of their graves and wander the countryside,

trying to return to the homes where they formerly lived.

Frightened villagers tried to appease these wandering spirits by offering

them gifts of fruit and nuts. This is the origin of our present

day “trick-or-treat.” They began the tradition of placing plates

of the finest food and bits of treats that the household had to

offer on their doorsteps, as gifts, to appease the hunger of the

ghostly wanderers. If not placated, villagers feared that the

spirits would kill their flocks or destroy their property.

The problem was… if the souls of dead loved ones could return that

night, so could anything else, human or not, nice or

not-so-nice. The only thing the superstitious people knew to do

to protect themselves on such an occasion was to masquerade as

one of the demonic hoard, and hopefully blend in unnoticed among

them. Wearing masks and other disguises and blackening the face

with soot were originally ways of hiding oneself from the

spirits of the dead who might be roaming around. This is the

origin of Halloween masquerading as devils, imps, ogres, and

other demonic creatures.

Trick or Treat has been thought to have come from a European custom

called “souling”. Beggars would go from village to village

begging for “soul cakes” made out of square pieces of bread with

currants. The more soul cakes the beggars would receive, the

more prayers they would promise to say on behalf of the dead

relatives of the donors. At the time, it was believed that the

dead remained in limbo for a time after death, and that prayer,

even by strangers could guarantee a soul’s passage to heaven.

In many parts of Britain and Ireland this night used to be known as

‘Mischief Night’, which meant that people were free to go around

the village playing pranks and getting up to any kind of

mischief without fear of being punished. Many of the different

customs were taken to the United States by Irish and Scottish

immigrants in the nineteenth century, and they developed into

‘trick or treat’.

When Christianity spread to parts of Europe, instead of trying to

abolish these pagan customs, people tried to introduce ideas

which reflected a more Christian world-view. Halloween has since

become a confusing mixture of traditions and practices from

pagan cultures and Christian tradition. The Romans observed the

holiday of Feralia, intended to give rest and peace to the

departed. Participants made sacrifices in honor of the dead,

offered up prayers for them, and made oblations to them. The

festival was celebrated on February 21, the end of the Roman

year. In the 7th century, Pope Boniface IV introduced All

Saints’ Day to replace the pagan festival of the dead. It was

observed on May 13. In 834, Gregory III moved All Saint’s Day

from May 13 to Nov. 1 and for Christians, this became an

opportunity for remembering before God all the saints who had

died and all the dead in the Christian community. Oct. 31 thus

became All Hallows’ Eve (‘hallow’ means ’saint’). Sadly, though,

many of the customs survived and were blended in with


Numerous folk customs connected with the pagan observances for the dead

have survived to the present. The various activities traditional

to Halloween are mostly associated with the idea of obtaining

good fortune and foretelling the future. The idea behind

ducking, dooking or bobbing for apples seems to have been that

snatching a bite from the apple enables the person to grasp good

fortune. Samhain is a time for getting rid of weakness, as

pagans once slaughtered weak animals which were unlikely to

survive the winter. A common ritual calls for writing down

weaknesses on a piece of paper or parchment, and tossing it into

the fire. There used to be a custom of placing a stone in the

hot ashes of the bonfire. If in the morning a person found that

the stone had been removed or had cracked, it was a sign of bad

fortune. Nuts have been used for divination: whether they burned

quietly or exploded indicated good or bad luck. Peeling an apple

and throwing the peel over one’s shoulder was supposed to reveal

the initial of one’s future spouse. One way of looking for omens

of death was for peope to visit churchyards, because the spirits

of those who were going to die during the coming year were

thought to walk around the churchyard during this night.

The Jack-o-lantern is the festival light for Halloween and is the

ancient symbol of a damned soul. Originally the Irish would

carve out turnips or beets as lanterns as representations of the

souls of the dead or goblins freed from the dead. When the Irish

emigrated to America they could not find many turnips to carve

into Jack O’Lanterns but they did find an abundance of pumpkins.

Pumpkins seemed to be a suitable substitute for the turnips and

pumpkins have been an essential part of Halloween celebrations

ever since. Pumpkins were cut with faces representing demons and

was originally intended to frighten away evil spirits. It was

said that if a demon or such were to encounter something as

fiendish looking as themselves that they’d run away in

terror,thus sparing the houses dwellers from the ravages of dark

entities. They would have been carried around the village

boundaries or left outside the home to burn through the night.

Bats, owls and other nocturanal animals, also popular symbols of

Halloween, were originally feared because people believed that

these creatures could communicate with the spirits of the dead.

Black cats has religious origins as well. During the Middle Ages

it was believed that witches could turn themselves into black

cats. Thus when such a cat was seen, it was considered to be a

witch in disguise.

Witches and witchcraft are dominant themes of the holiday. Witches

generally believe themselves to be followers of an ancient

religion, which goes back far beyond Christianity, and which is

properly called ‘wicca’. Witches are really just one side of a

modern revival of paganism - the following of pre-Christian nature religions, the attempt to return to worshipping ancient Norse, Greek or Celtic gods and

goddesses. The apostle Paul said Witchcraft is one of the acts

of the sinful nature and those who practice it will not inherit

the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:16-21; see also Revelation

22:15). Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter

in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets

omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a

medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who

does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of

these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out

those nations before you. You must be blameless before the

LORD your God. The nations you will dispossess listen to

those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you,

the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so.

[Deuteronomy 18:10-14]

Should Christians adopt such practices?

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be

transformed by the renewing of your mind.” [Romans 12:2]

Can we borrow the pagan customs and superstitions of ancient

peoples and “Christianize” them?

“Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil. [1

Thesalonians 5:21-22] Who can deny that virtually all of the symbols of Halloween are evil? Witches, monsters, ogres, vampires, ghosts, ghouls, goblins,

devils and demons all portray evil.

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather

reprove them.” [Ephesians 5:11]

The sort of practices celebrated on Halloween are what defiled the ancient nations

[see Leviticus 18:24-30]. The Israelites were warned against such practices when they entered the Promised Land,

“When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou

shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.”

[Deuteronomy 18:9]

Is Halloween just another innocent holiday that doesn’t harm

anyone? Is it really just childish fun? Should the church be

compromised by accommodating itself to the culture? Vandalism

and wanton disregard for the property of others is common on

Halloween night. Even normally well-behaved children are driven

by unseen forces to destructive behavior. Police officials

everywhere report a great increase in such activities on

Halloween. Worse yet are the horrifying accounts of poisoned

candy and fruits booby-trapped with razor blades and needles.

Such threats are so real that many hospitals offer free X-rays

of Halloween treats in order to prevent children from being

harmed. Who but Satan could inspire such monstrous actions?

As an alternative to the celebration of evil and death, Christians

should rather do what Christians are supposed to do every day

and that is shine the light of Jesus Christ. We should emphasize

the Christian influences and strive to make Hallow’s Eve a

celebration of the acts of God through his people the saints. We

should make it a day when acts of charity instead of vandalism

and hatred abound. A day that emphasizes the light of Christ

instead of the darkness of evil. A day when people meditate on

the acts of Godly people instead of ghosts and goblins.

When America and the world celebrates the Festival of Samhain and the

powers of darkness by masquerading as evil creatures or

decorating our homes, schools, businesses and churches with

occult symbols, Satanic power is glorified. While you may have

participated “all in fun,” be assured, Halloween is serious

business for Satanists and witches. Those who oppose Christ are

known to organize on Halloween to observe satanic rituals, to

cast spells, to oppose churches and families, to perform

sacrilegious acts, and to even offer blood sacrifices to Satan.

As evil prevails, Americans have embraced an evil day of Satan,

with the pranks of ‘would be’ hoodlums, combined with ‘demon

faces’ on pumpkins, clothing of ‘death’ being worn, and calling

it fun. When Christians participate in Halloween, it sends a

message to children that witchcraft, demonism, Satanism, and the

occult are something fun, entertaining and harmless.

Many years ago, C.S. Lewis wrote that one of Satan’s most deceptive

tactics is to convince people that he doesn’t exist. Apparently

he has done a good job in his deception. Sadly, many people

think of the devil as no more than a symbol of evil: like Santa

Claus, he is just a fictional symbol. Many people today also do

not think of witches as real people who practice magic, but

simply as imaginary figures who represent the supernatural world

and everything that is ’spooky.’ Recognizing this pagan holiday

gives the false impression that what is actually lethal is


Some children develop a fascination with the supernatural which leads

them later into more sinister occult practices. It’s the

spiritual equivalent of painting a loaded gun to look like a toy

and giving it to child to play with.

It is the kind of celebration that encourages kids like the

16-year-old in Pearl, Mississippi who stabbed his mother to

death in her sleep and then opened fire at his high school,

killing two students and wounding seven. Authorities found this

student along with at least six others involved in a small,

avowedly satanic clique that calls itself “Kroth.”

How some people can defend this kind of activity as just another

innocent holiday that doesn’t harm anyone is beyond me.

Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of

light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil

hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear

that his deeds will be exposed. (John 3:19-20)

Central to Satan’s goals is the widespread acceptance of the

supernatural, including the occult, on the part of North

Americans, accompanied by a great revival of spiritism all over

the world. Over the last 30 years, the occult has moved into the

mainstream of America – in television, movies, magazines,

business, and various aspects of daily life. Movies, books,

magazines and encyclopedias of the supernatural have abounded.

Turn on your TV and hear from the ever-present “Psychic Friends”

hotline, or see lead characters in TV shows meet their “spirit

guide.” Entire bookstores devoted to the occult have become

common. Universities regularly offer courses on witchcraft and

magic – usually the so-called “white” variety. Myriads of

mystical Eastern religions, bizarre and often demonic, have

invaded North America and found in most cases an amazing


Increasingly the curriculum in many public schools is becoming a primer in

occultism. Impressions, a curriculum used in many school

districts instructs teachers and students in how to cast spells.

One teacher’s manual reads, “Tell the children that a magician

has cast a spell on some children. Have them work in pairs to

write the magic spell the magician used. Have each pair write

another spell to reverse the first spell. Have them chant their

spells.” About 16,000 school districts use the Pumsey the Dragon

curriculum, by Jill Anderson. Many of the relaxation techniques

used are identical to those used in hypnosis. Another curriculum

called Duso the Dolphin employs relaxation techniques and sends

hypnotized youngsters off on guided fantasies to a place called


Recently, a California skateboard manufacturer used a package enclosure

similar in appearance to a gospel tract to encourage purchasers

to sell their souls to the devil. The brochure titled, “Let’s

Make a Deal” has a smiley-faced devil who explains to Flame Boy

what happened in heaven after he was banished: “First off, they

set up a bunch of dumb rules, and then they imposed a really

strict dress code. I’l wager that people must be quite bored up

there, but hey, that’s what they get for being good.” He

contrasts this with, “Flame Boy, even a dimwit like you can see

that hell is by far the best place to retire. Just look at all

the fun to be had.” Children are asked to sign and return a

contract, by which they give possession of their souls to the

devil for eternity.

Satanism has become a phenomena that crosses the city limit into the

rural areas of our nation. It is reported there are some 6000

witches, and approximately 10 million people are involved in the

occult. However, it is very difficult to establish how many

actually participate. These individuals are involved in a wide

variety of activities from simply casting spells to human

sacrifice. The news wires carry story after story about young

children being kidnapped, only to be found later as victims of

some bizarre ritualistic crime.

As satantic involvement among our youth increases, we begin to see

the primary goal of such activity. According to Scripture (2

Cor. 4:4; Rev. 12:9), Satan’s goal is to deceive man by blinding

him to the truth of the gospel and to receive worship for

himself (Matt. 4:9; Isa. 14:12-14). It has become clear that the

primary goal is to alter an individual’s values and turn him

against himself, his beliefs, family, God and society.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a

roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” 1

Peter 5:8

Young satanists believe the strong will rule with Satan. Once an

individual becomes involved, they often make a pact with Satan.

They commit themselves to a future date when they will take

their own lives by suicide. They believe if they submit

themselves to Satan in death, they will come back in another

life as a stronger being and rule with him forever. According to

recent statistics, fourteen young people a day take their own


What’s wrong with Halloween? It does not have even one single redeeming

virtue. It is custom born out of pagan superstition. It is a

demon-inspired, devil-glorifying, occult festival. It is an

evening holy unto evil, death, and divination. The Scriptures

tells us to

“Abstain from all appearance of evil.” [1Thess. 5:22]

Wake up Christian! This is the night of evil and those who love

the Lord Jesus Christ should have nothing to do with it.

We are all accountable for our choices and decisions. Ignorance is

no excuse. The choice is up to you. Have you been involved in

this satanic holiday? Do you struggle with giving it up because

“it’s just fun” and an innocent opportunity for children to

dress up and collect candy? Don’t take my word for it. Let God

show you what He would have you do.**


I love yoou and would not take the time to put this all in this blog if I did not care about you. Please pray and seek our Elohim about this pagan holiday and the others. We will discuss them in later blogs, LORD willing.

With love to all in and theu Yeshua HaMashiach, our Savior and soon coming King...His Ama gloria

Tishrei 2, 5771

We are in the second day of Yom Teruah or Rosh HaShanah as it is most commenly known. L'Shana Tovah to anyone who reads this. May this new year bring blessings of health, prosperity, happiness and peace to your house.

So much going on in my head.....knowing these are the days to deal with the things that are keeping me bound. I feel much remorse that I have not blogged more but it is one of those things I have to pray and seek our Elohim about. I have to be in a place of seeking Him to show me what He would have me say. I also have to get my mind situated on things that are truly inportant instead of the things off the world.

The last time I wrote we were just entering into the Forty Days of Teshuvah..now we are in the Ten Days of Awe. I have prayed so much....cried so much about making changes in my life. In these days it feels as though a weight is upon my back....I wonder if that is what people feel when they say a monkey in on their back?

Wow, I just looked it up....I truly do feel it......
"Monkeys" are worries, regrets, anger and guilt that never keep quiet and refuse to sit still. They are born from the more than 50,000 thoughts each of us think each day, largely about things we cannot control, do not wish to see happen, won’t have time to experience or can’t let go. When it comes to mind and spirit self-improvement, monkeys are what hold us back from thinking clearly, reaching our goals and feeling more peaceful.

Yep....I got a monkey on my back..only mine feels more like a gorilla! It is regrets, worries and guilt. And anger! Anger at myself because I have not been doing the things I should have and it had caused a whole domino effect in my life and the lives of those around me. This is the time to get it out...to seek Him...to LET GO AND LET GOD!

The Ten Days of Awe are also broken down into Jacob's Trouble. This is the seven days between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur and it represents the seven years of Tribulation that will come upon the earth....soon.

If you do not observe our Elohim's Feasts but feel such a tugging inside...maybe even what seems to be depresion...it probably is HIm tugging at you. I used to...for years I would get depressed around this time of year but did not put it all together until I came into the Jewish Roots of my faith. And then I realized I was being brought into a place of repentance..of crying out..even for the world around me because this is His Times and Seasons...it is for the whole world..not just the Jewish people. Yes, the WHOLE WORLD is being judged..not just 'religious' people. I pray you will seek Him....pray about the things that are bothering you...that are on your mind....even on your back. Repent....make amends with those around you if you feel it is necessary but most of all seek forgiveness from our Elohim. YHVH is ready to forgive.

One thing that I truly believe is a monkey on a lot of backs is not observing His Sabbath and keeping it holy...set apart. If you are among the throngs who say Sun day is your Sabbath you would do well to pray and seek guidence about this. Our Elohim commanded us to keep His Sabbath..the Seventh Day..and He has NEVER changed His mind.

The following is something that will give you knowledge..it is truth and I pray you have eyes to see and ears to hear. In other words...do not be blind to truth...seek understanding.

This evening at sunset is the Sabbath of our Elohim...it is Shabbat. So I say to you....Shabbat Shalom!

Modern and Historic Statements about the Sabbath

American Congregationalist
"The current notion that Christ and His apostles authoritatively substituted the first day for the seventh, is absolutely without any authority in the New Testament." Dr. Layman Abbot, Christian Union, June 26, 1890

"And where are we told in the Scriptures that we are to keep the first day at all? We are commanded to keep the seventh; but we are nowhere commanded to keep the first day... The reason why we keep the first day of the week holy instead of the seventh is for the same reason that we observe many other things, not because the Bible, but because the Church, has enjoined it." Isaac Williams, Plain Sermons on the Catechism, pp. 334, 336

"There was and is a command to keep holy the Sabbath day, but that Sabbath day was not Sunday. It will however be readily said, and with some show of triumph, that the Sabbath was transferred from the seventh to the first day of the week, with all its duties, privileges and sanctions. Earnestly desiring information on this subject, which I have studied for many years, I ask, where can the record of such a transaction be found: Not in the New Testament — absolutely not. There is no scriptural evidence of the change of the Sabbath institution from the seventh to the first day of the week." Dr. E. T. Hiscox, Baptist Manual

"To me it seems unaccountable that Jesus, during three years [of] discussion with His disciples, often conversing with them upon the Sabbath question, discussing it in some of its various aspects, freeing it from its false [Jewish traditional] glosses, never alluded to any transference of the day; also, that during the forty days of His resurrection life, no such thing was intimated. Nor, so far as we know, did the Spirit, which was given to bring to their remembrance all things whatsoever that He had said unto them, deal with this question. Nor yet did the inspired apostles, in preaching the gospel, founding churches, counseling and instructing those founded, discuss or approach the subject.
Of course I quite well know that Sunday did come into use in early Christian history as a religious day as we learn from the Christian Fathers and other sources. But what a pity that it comes branded with the mark of Paganism, and christened with the name of the sun-god, then adopted and sanctified by the Papal apostasy, and bequeathed as a sacred legacy to Protestantism." Dr. E. T. Hiscox, report of his sermon at the Baptist Minister's Convention, New York Examiner, November 16, 1893

"The Scriptures nowhere call the first day of the week the Sabbath. . .There is no Scriptural authority for so doing, nor of course, any Scriptural obligation." The Watchman

"There was never any formal or authoritative change from the Jewish seventh-day Sabbath to the Christian first-day observance." William Owen Carver, The Lord's Day in Our Day, p. 49

"There is nothing in Scripture that requires us to keep Sunday rather than Saturday as a holy day." Harold Lindsell, Christianity Today, November 5, 1976

"With the views of the law and the Sabbath we once held ... and which are still held by perhaps the great majority of the most earnest Christians, we confess that we could not answer Adventists. What is more, neither before nor since have I heard or read what would conclusively answer an Adventist in his Scriptural contention that the Seventh day is the Sabbath. It is not 'one day in seven' as some put it, but 'the seventh day according to the commandment.'" Words of Truth and Grace, p. 281

"It is well to remind the Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists, and all other Christians, that the Bible does not support them anywhere in their observance of Sunday. Sunday is an institution of the Roman Catholic Church, and those who observe the day observe a commandment of the Catholic Church." Priest Brady, in an address reported in the Elizabeth, NJ News on March 18, 1903

"Protestants ... accept Sunday rather than Saturday as the day for public worship after the Catholic Church made the change... But the Protestant mind does not seem to realize that ... in observing Sunday, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the Church, the pope." Our Sunday Visitor, February 5, 1950

"Of course these two old quotations are exactly correct. The Catholic Church designated Sunday as the day for corporate worship and gets full credit — or blame — for the change." This Rock, The Magazine of Catholic Apologetics and Evangelization, p. 8, June 1997

Which is the Sabbath day? Saturday is the Sabbath day. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday? We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday." Rev. Peter Geiermann C.S.S.R., The Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, p. 50

"Must not a sensible Protestant doubt seriously, when he finds that even the Bible is not followed as a rule by his co-religionists? Surely, when he sees them baptize infants, abrogate the Jewish Sabbath, and observe Sunday for which there is no Scriptural authority; when he finds them neglect to wash one another's feet, which is expressly commanded, and eat blood and things strangled, which are expressly prohibited in Scripture. He must doubt, if he think at all. ... Should not the Protestant doubt when he finds that he himself holds tradition as a guide? Yes, if he would but reflect that he has nothing but Catholic tradition for keeping the Sunday holy." Controversial Catechism, Stephen Keenan, New Edition, revised by Rev. George Cormack, published in London by Burns & Oates, Limited - New York, Cincinnati, Chicago: Benzinger Brothers, 1896, pp. 6-7

"The Church, on the other hand, after changing the day of rest from the Jewish Sabbath, or seventh day of the week, to the first, made the Third [sic] Commandment refer to Sunday as the day to be kept holy as the Lord's Day. The Council of Trent condemns those who deny that the Ten Commandments are binding on Christians." The Catholic Encyclopedia, "Commandments of God", Volume IV, 1908, Robert Appleton Company

"The [Roman Catholic] Church changed the observance of the Sabbath to Sunday by right of the divine, infallible authority given to her by her founder, Jesus Christ. The Protestant, claiming the Bible to be the only guide of faith, has no warrant for observing Sunday. In this matter the Seventh-day Adventist is the only consistent Protestant." The Catholic Universe Bulletin, August 14, 1942, p. 4

"All of us believe many things in regard to religion that we do not find in the Bible. For example, nowhere in the Bible do we find that Christ or the Apostles ordered that the Sabbath be changed from Saturday to Sunday. We have the commandment of God given to Moses to keep holy the Sabbath Day that is the seventh day of the week, Saturday. Today most Christians keep Sunday because it has been revealed to us by the Church outside the Bible." The Catholic Virginian, "To Tell You The Truth," Vol. 22, No. 49 (Oct. 3, 1947)

"... you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify." The Faith of Our Fathers, James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore, 88th edition, p. 89. Originally published in 1876

"Deny the authority of the Church and you have no adequate or reasonable explanation or justification for the substitution of Sunday for Saturday in the Third - Protestant Fourth - Commandment of God... The Church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact." Catholic Record, September 1, 1923

"Perhaps the boldest thing, the most revolutionary change the Church ever did, happened in the first century. The holy day, the Sabbath, was changed from Saturday to Sunday. 'The Day of the Lord' was chosen, not from any directions noted in the Scriptures, but from the Church's sense of its own power. The day of resurrection, the day of Pentecost, fifty days later, came on the first day of the week. So this would be the new Sabbath. People who think that the Scriptures should be the sole authority, should logically become Seventh Day Adventists, and keep Saturday holy." Sentinel, Saint Catherine Catholic Church, Algonac, Michigan, May 21, 1995

"If Protestants would follow the Bible, they would worship God on the Sabbath Day. In keeping the Sunday they are following a law of the Catholic Church." Albert Smith, Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, replying for the Cardinal, in a letter dated February 10, 1920

"The observance of Sunday by the Protestants is homage they pay, in spite of themselves, to the authority of the [Catholic] Church." Monsignor Louis Segur, Plain Talk about the Protestantism of Today, p. 213

"I have repeatedly offered $1,000 to anyone who can prove to me from the Bible alone that I am bound to keep Sunday holy. There is no such law in the Bible. It is a law of the holy Catholic Church alone. The Bible says 'Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.' The Catholic Church says, 'No. By my divine power I abolish the Sabbath day and command you to keep holy the first day of the week.' And lo! The entire civilized world bows down in reverent obedience to the command of the Holy Catholic Church." Priest Thomas Enright, C.S.S.R., February 18, 1884, The American Sentinel, a New York Roman Catholic journal in June 1893, p. 173

"Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change was her act. And the act is a mark of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters." C. F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons, in answer to a letter regarding the change of the Sabbath, November 11, 1895

"Tradition, not Scripture, is the rock on which the church of Jesus Christ is built." Adrien Nampon, Catholic Doctrine, the Council of Trent, p. 157

"The Pope is of so great authority and power that he can modify, explain, or interpret even divine law. The pope can modify divine law, since his power is not of man, but of God, and he acts a vicegerent of God upon earth." Lucius Ferraris, "Prompta Bibliotheca", Papa, II, Vol. VI, p. 29

"The Sun was a foremost god with heathendom. There is, in truth, something royal, kingly about the sun, making it a fit emblem of Jesus, the Sun of Justice. Hence the church in these countries would seem to have said, to 'Keep that old pagan name [Sunday]. It shall remain consecrated, sanctified.' And thus the pagan Sunday, dedicated to Balder, became the Christian Sunday, sacred to Jesus." William Gildea, Doctor of Divinity, The Catholic World, March, 1894, p. 809

"The retention of the old pagan name of Dies Solis, for Sunday is, in a great measure, owing to the union of pagan and Christian sentiment with which the first day of the week was recommended by Constantine to his subjects - pagan and Christian alike - as the 'venerable' day of the sun."" Arthur P. Stanley, History of the Eastern Church, p. 184

"Question: How prove you that the Church hath power to command feasts and holydays? Answer: By the very act of changing the Sabbath into Sunday, which Protestants allow of; and therefore they fondly contradict themselves, by keeping Sunday strictly, and breaking most other feasts commanded by the same Church." Henry Tuberville, An Abridgment of the Christian Doctrine (1833 approbation), p.58 (Also Manual of Christian Doctrine, ed. by Daniel Ferris [1916 ed.], p.67)

"Sunday is a Catholic institution, and... can be defended only on Catholic principles.... From beginning to end of Scripture there is not a single passage that warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last day of the week to the first." Catholic Press, August 25, 1900

"The Sabbath was Saturday, not Sunday. The Church altered the observance of the Sabbath to the observance of Sunday. Protestants must be rather puzzled by the keeping of Sunday when God distinctly said, 'Keep holy the Sabbath Day.' The word Sunday does not come anywhere in the Bible, so, without knowing it they are obeying the authority of the Catholic Church." Canon Cafferata, The Catechism Explained, p. 89

"Reason and sense demand the acceptance of one or the other of these alternatives: either Protestantism and the keeping holy of Saturday, or Catholicity and the keeping holy of Sunday. Compromise is impossible." John Cardinal Gibbons, The Catholic Mirror, December 23, 1893

Church Of Christ
"But we do not find any direct command from God, or instruction from the risen Christ, or admonition from the early apostles, that the first day is to be substituted for the seventh day Sabbath. Let us be clear on this point. Though to the Christian that day, the first day of the week is the most memorable of all days ... there is no command or warrant in the New Testament for observing it as a holy day. The Roman Church selected the first day of the week in honor of the resurrection of Christ. ..." Bible Standard, May, 1916, Auckland, New Zealand

"If the fourth command is binding upon us Gentiles by all means keep it. But let those who demand a strict observance of the Sabbath remember that the seventh day is the only Sabbath day commanded, and God never repealed that command. If you would keep the Sabbath, keep it; but Sunday is not the Sabbath. The argument of the 'Seventh Day Adventists' is on one point unassailable. It is the Seventh day not the first day that the command refers to." G. Alridge, Editor, The Bible Standard, April, 1916
"There is no direct Scriptural authority for designating the first day the Lord's day."-DR. D. H. Lucas, Christian Oracle, Jan. 23, 1890

"The first day of the week is commonly called the Sabbath. This is a mistake. The Sabbath of the Bible was the day just preceding the first day of the week. The first day of the week is never called the Sabbath anywhere in the entire Scriptures. It is also an error to talk about the change of the Sabbath. There never was any change of the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday. There is not in any place in the Bible any intimation of such a change." First-Day Observance, pp 17,19

"It is clearly proved that the pastors of the churches have struck out one of God's ten words, which, not only in the Old Testament, but in all revelation, are the most emphatically regarded as the synopsis of all religion and morality." Alexander Campbell, Debate With Purcell, page 214

"I do not believe that the Lord's day came in the room of the Jewish Sabbath, or that the Sabbath was changed from the seventh to the first day, for this plain reason, where there is no testimony, there can be no faith. Now there is no testimony in all the oracles of heaven that the Sabbath was changed, or that the Lord's day came in the room of it." Alexander Campbell, Washington Reporter, October 8, 1821

Church of England
"Many people think that Sunday is the Sabbath. But neither in the New Testament nor in the early church is there anything to suggest that we have any right to transfer the observance of the seventh day of the week to the first. The Sabbath was and is Saturday and not Sunday, and if it were binding on us then we should observe it on that day, and on no other." Rev. Lionel Beere, All-Saints Church, Ponsonby, N.Z. Church and People, September 1, 1947

"Nowhere in the Bible is it laid down that worship should be done on Sunday. Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. That is Saturday." P. Carrington, Archbishop of Quebec, Oct. 27, 1949

"The observance of the first instead of the seventh day rests on the testimony of the church, and the church alone." Hobart Church News

"Where are we told in Scripture that we are to keep the first day at all? We are commanded to keep the seventh; but we are nowhere commanded to keep the first day. The reason why we keep the first day holy instead of the seventh is for the same reason that we observe many things, not because the Bible, but because the Church, has enjoined them." Rev. Isaac Williams, Sermon on Catechism, p. 334

"The seventh day, the commandment says, is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God. No kind of arithmetic, no kind of almanac, can make seven equal one, or the seventh mean the first, or Saturday mean Sunday. ... The fact is that we are all Sabbath breakers, every one of us." Rev. Geo. Hodges

"Not any ecclesiastical writer of the first three centuries attributed the origin of Sunday observance either to Christ or to His apostles." Sir William Domville, Examination of the Six Texts, pp. 6,7 (Supplement)

"There is no word, no hint, in the New Testament about ab­staining from work on Sunday. The observance of Ash Wednesday or Lent stands exactly on the same footing as the observance of Sunday." Canon Eyton, The Ten Commandments, pp. 52,63,65

"The Lord's day did not succeed in the place of the Sabbath.... The Lord's day was merely an ecclesiastical institution. It was not introduced by virtue of the fourth commandment, because for almost three hundred years together they kept that day which was in that commandment.... The primitive Christians did all manner of works upon the Lord's day, even in times of persecution, when they are the strictest observers of all the divine commandments; but in this they knew there was none." Bishop Jeremy Taylor, Ductor Dubitantium, Part I, Book II, Chap. 2, Rule 6. Sec. 51,59

"Merely to denounce the tendency to secularize Sunday is as futile as it is easy. What we want is to find some principle, to which as Christians we can appeal, and on which we can base both our conduct and our advice. We turn to the New Testament, and we look in vain for any authoritative rule. There is no recorded word of Christ, there is no word of any of the apostles, which tells how we should keep Sunday, or indeed that we should keep it at all. It is disappointing, for it would make our task much easier if we could point to a definite rule, which left us no option but simple obedience or disobedience.... There is no rule for Sunday observance, either in Scripture or history." Dr. Stephen, Bishop of Newcastle, N.S.W., in an address reported in the Newcastle Morning Herald, May 14, 1924

"The Christian Sabbath' [Sunday] is not in the Scripture, and was not by the primitive [early Christian] church called the Sabbath." Timothy Dwight, Theology, sermon 107, 1818 ed., Vol. IV, p49 (Dwight was president of Yale University from 1795-1817)

"It must be confessed that there is no law in the New Testament concerning the first day." Buck's Theological Dictionary p. 403

"The current notion that Christ and His apostles authoritatively substituted the first day for the seventh, is absolutely without any authority in the New Testament." Dr. Lyman Abbott, Christian Union, Jan. 18, 1882

"We have made the change from the seventh day to the first day, from Saturday to Sunday, on the authority of the one holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church of Christ." Bishop Symour, Why We keep Sunday
"The Bible commandment says on the seventh-day thou shalt rest. That is Saturday. Nowhere in the Bible is it laid down that worship should be done on Sunday." Phillip Carrington, quoted in Toronto Daily Star, October 26, 1949

"The observance of the Lord's Day (Sunday) is founded not on any command of God, but on the authority of the Church." Augsburg Confession of Faith

"They [the Catholics] allege the Sabbath changed into Sunday, the Lord's day, contrary to the Decalogue, as it appears, neither is there any example more boasted of than the changing of the Sabbath day. Great, say they, is the power and authority of the church, since it dispensed with one of the Ten Commandments." Augsburg Confession of Faith, Art. 28, par. 9

"For up to this day mankind has absolutely trifled with the original and most special revelation of the Holy God, the ten words written upon the tables of the Law from Sinai." Crown Theological Library, p. 178

"The Christians in the ancient church very soon distinguished the first day of the week, Sunday; however, not as a Sabbath, but as an assembly day of the church, to study the Word of God together, and to celebrate the ordinances one with another: without a shadow of doubt, this took place as early as the first part of the second century." Bishop Grimelund, History of the Sabbath, p. 60

"The festival of Sunday, like all other festivals, was always only a human ordinance." Augustus Neander, History of the Christian Religion and Church, Vol. 1, p. 186

"But they err in teaching that Sunday has taken the place of the Old Testament Sabbath and therefore must be kept as the seventh day had to be kept by the children of Israel .... These churches err in their teaching, for scripture has in no way ordained the first day of the week in place of the Sabbath. There is simply no law in the New Testament to that effect" John Theodore Mueller, Sabbath or Sunday, pp. 15,16

"No Christian whatsoever is free from the obedience of the commandments which are called moral." Methodist Church Discipline, (1904), p. 23

"It is true that there is no positive command for infant baptism. Nor is there any for the keeping of the first day of the week. Many believe that Christ changed the Sabbath. But, from His own words, we see that He came for no such purpose. Those who believe that Jesus changed the Sabbath base it only on a supposition." Amos Binney, Theological Compendium, p. 180-181

"The Sabbath instituted in the beginning, and confirmed again and again by Moses and the prophets, has never been abrogated. A part of the moral law, not a jot or a tittle of its sanctity has been taken away." Bishops Pastoral

Moody Bible Institute
"The Sabbath was binding in Eden, and it has been in force ever since. This fourth commandment begins with the word 'remember,' showing that the Sabbath already existed when God wrote the law on the tables of stone at Sinai. How can men claim that this one commandment has been done away with when they will admit that the other nine are still binding?" D.L. Moody, Weighed and Wanting, p. 47

"I honestly believe that this commandment [the fourth, or Sabbath commandment] is just as binding today as it ever was. I have talked with men who have said that it has been abrogated, but they have never been able to point to any place in the Bible where God repealed it. When Christ was on earth, He did nothing to set it aside; He freed it from the traces under which the scribes and Pharisees had put it, and gave it its true place. 'The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.' It is just as practicable and as necessary for men today as it ever was-in fact, more than ever, because we live in such an intense age.' Id., p. 46

"The Christian Sabbath (Sunday) is not in the Scriptures, and was not by the primitive church called the Sabbath." Dwight's Theology, Vol. 14, p. 401

"A further argument for the perpetuity of the Sabbath we have in Matthew 24:20.... Yet it is plainly implied in these words of the Lord that even then Christians were bound to strict observation of the Sabbath." Works of Jonathon Edwards, Vol. 4, p. 621.

"We must not imagine that the coming of Christ has freed us from the authority of the law; for it is the eternal rule of a devout and holy life, and must therefore be as unchangeable as the justice of God, which it embraced, is constant and uniform." John Calvin, Commentary on a Harmony of the Gospels, Vol. 1, page 277

"God instituted the Sabbath at the creation of man, setting apart the seventh day for the purpose, and imposed its observance as a universal and perpetual moral obligation upon the race." American Presbyterian Board of Publication, Tract No. 175

"The observance of the seventh-day Sabbath did not cease till it was abolished after the [Roman] empire became Christian," American Presbyterian Board of Publication, Tract No. 118

"The moral law doth for ever bind all, as well justified persons as others, to the obedience thereof; and that not only in regard to the matter contained in it, but also in respect of the authority of God the Creator who gave it. Neither doth Christ in the gospel in any way dissolve, but much strengthen this obligation." Westminster Confession of Faith, Chap. 19, Art. 5

"The Sabbath is a part of the Decalogue-the Ten Commandments. This alone for ever settles the question as to the perpetuity of the institution ... Until, therefore, it can be shown that the whole moral law has been repealed, the Sabbath will stand ... The teaching of Christ confirms the perpetuity of the Sabbath." T.C. Blake, D.D., Theology Condensed, pp. 474,475

Southern Baptist
"The sacred name of the seventh day is Sabbath. This fact is too clear to require argument. Not once did the disciples apply the Sabbath law to the first day of the week, — that folly was left for a later age, nor did they pretend that the first day supplanted the seventh." Joseph Hudson Taylor, The Sabbatic Question, pp. 14-17,41

"The first four commandments set forth man's obligations directly toward God.... But when we keep the first four commandments, we are likely to keep the other six. . . . The fourth commandment sets forth God's claim on man's time and thought.... The six days of labor and the rest on the Sabbath are to be maintained as a witness to God's toil and rest in the creation.... No one of the ten words is of merely racial significance.... The Sabbath was established originally (long before Moses) in no special connection with the Hebrews, but as an institution for all mankind, in commemoration of God's rest after the six days of creation. It was designed for all the descendants of Adam." Adult Quarterly, Southern Baptist Convention series, August 15, 1937.

Elul 2...Teshuvah

It was a trying first day...I feel such a weight upon myself but I know this is just the beginning and anything we want to change about ourselves takes time. We cannot expect to do it overnight. Forty Days....forty days.

These are the days that our Elohim has set up so that mankind could be forgiven. These days are NOT just for the Israelite...but for ALL MANKIND. So no matter if you believe in Elohim as the true Elohim....or don't believe in any god at all...YOU ARE BEING JUDGED NOW!

We who are under the blood of Yeshua are forgiven BUT as we all know none of us is without sin and without the desire in our hearts for repentance we cannot be forgiven of our daily sins. And we know our Father disciplines us because He loves us.

We MUST search our hearts and allow the Holy Spirit to do the work in us to convict us of the things we need to change. We are asked to TESHUVAH or RETURN.

We return to the Path Elohim has set us upon, the path that our souls know as "homewardbound", the path of goodness and of becoming a better person.

YHVH, our Father doesn't want us weighed down by negative thoughts and putting ourselves down when we make mistakes. When we make wrong choices in life they should be seen as opportunities for growth, not chains and shackles to weigh us down forever.

The Steps For Teshuvah

1. STOP....Stop whatever it is you are engaged in that is not what our Elohim appeoves of or is causing you much distress.

2. REGRET....You should feel regret for what you are doing and you should be sorry for it.

3. VERBALIZE....Explain your regret out loud to Elohim. Talk to Him. He already knows but we need to speak out and hear it.

If your actions caused harm to others....then make amends.

When we speak to Elohim and ask forgivness this is forgiven....this atones only for the sins between man and Elohim. If it is brought to our hearts that we have sinned against someone we must make it right if at all possible.

4. MAKE A PLAN....LET GO AND LET GOD as the saying goes. Our Elohim will help you to stop your sinning. He will, through the blood of Yeshua, wipe it away....out of sight........

Michah 7:7..But for me, I watch in hope for ADONAI, I watch for Elohim my Savior, my Elohim will hear me.


Michah 7:18..Who is a Elohim like You, Who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of His inheritance? You do not stay angry but delight to show mercy.

(This was among my notes and teachings for the season of Teshuvah. It was done long ago so I have no idea where I did my research from. So thank you to ever helped me do this and to come to understanding about it all.)



HaMelech Ba' Sade...."The King is in the fields".

The Forty Days of Teshuvah begin on Elul 1. The root word 'shoov' means 'return'. It combines both aspects of forgivness- turning from evil and turning to good.

We are to make restitution to those we have offended but REPENTANCE applies only to our transgressions committed to Elohim.

Psalm 27 is read each day......."The Lord is my light" refers to the Festval of Rosh HaShanah. "And my salvation" refers to Yom Kippur and vs.5.."He will hide me in tent" refers to the Feast of Sukkot-Tabernacles.

The seven days between Rosh HaShannah and Yom Kipper represent the seven years of Tribulation to come on earth. This is called "the Days of Awe" or "Time of Jacob's Trouble".

It is important to repent and return to YHVH BEFORE the time of Jacob's Trouble, so that we may be hidden in that day...Psalm 27:5.

It is said that within us we have Yetzer Tov ..the inclination to do good and Yetzer Rah..the inclination to do evil. I thought about this and it made me think about the Cherokee Tale about the two wolves...........

A Cherokee Legend...The Wolves Within

An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, "Let me tell you a story.

I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do.

But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times." He continued, "It is as if there are two wolves inside me. One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him, and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way. He is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

But the other wolf, ah! He is full of anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger,for his anger will change nothing.

Sometimes, it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit."

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather's eyes and asked, "Which one wins, Grandfather?"

The Grandfather smiled and quietly said, "The one I feed."

Which one have you been feeding lately? It seems that for me my evil wolf....my Yatzer Rah....has been gorging..been a glutton..because I have chosen to allow it to happen but when we know that our choices are bad, that they are not beneficial to us, we have the ability to change...to seek a better way.

That feeling is from our Elohim..He is calling............
Do you feel Him calling you into a deeper place? It is our choice as to how we respond to Him. But in this season He is calling....Return....Teshuvah!

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Hello from my little part of the world! Today is Av 23, 5770...this month is passing as quickly as all the others have! On the world calendar it is August 3 and school will be starting back up. I remember that I used to get very excited about school starting but I don't see this excitement around here....I guess they are too smart for it!

I have so many thoughts going thru my head....keep thinking about all the Christian preachers and evangelists, some good some bad....but for me, I keep thinking.."If they know Him as they say they do, then why are they not living in truth? Why are they still preaching only half of the Gospel?"

These men and women preach and teach yet do not live by the Word of Elohim. They do not follow His Commands. They do not keep His Sabbath or any of His Feasts. Ok, yes I have seen some who are instituting His Feasts into their programs but it just seems to me they are doing this to attract new money. They are showing their followers about the blessings in keeping these Feasts and then asking for money so they can receive their blessings.

The last two Parshas....the weekly readings from Torah....are all about His instructions and what He expects from US...NOT JUST THOSE WHO WERE IN THE DESERT WILDERNESS....because we are in a wilderness...each one of us has our own....and the only sure way to live and live in accordance to our Elohim's Way is to follow His instructions.


Deut.3....23 "Then I pleaded with ADONAI, 24 'Adonai ELOHIM, you have begun to reveal your greatness to your servant, and your strong hand - for what other god is there in heaven or on earth that can do the works and mighty deeds that you do? 25 Please! Let me go across and see the good land on the other side of the Yarden, that wonderful hill-country and the L'vanon!' 26 But ADONAI was angry with me on account of you, and he didn't listen to me. ADONAI said to me, 'Enough from you! Don't say another word to me about this matter! 27 Climb up to the top of Pisgah and look out to the west, north, south and east. Look with your eyes - but you will not go across this Yarden. 28 However, commission Y'hoshua, encourage him and strengthen him; for he will lead this people across and enable them to inherit the land that you will see.' 29 So we stayed in the valley across from Beit-P'or.

Deut. 4.... 1 "Now, Isra'el, listen to the laws and rulings I am teaching you, in order to follow them, so that you will live; then you will go in and take possession of the land that ADONAI, the God of your fathers, is giving you. 2 In order to obey the mitzvot of ADONAI your God which I am giving you, do not add to what I am saying, and do not subtract from it. 3 You saw with your own eyes what ADONAI did at Ba'al-P'or, that ADONAI destroyed from among you all the men who followed Ba'al-P'or; 4 but you who stuck with ADONAI your God are still alive today, every one of you. 5 Look, I have taught you laws and rulings, just as ADONAI my God ordered me, so that you can behave accordingly in the land where you are going in order to take possession of it. 6 Therefore, observe them; and follow them; for then all peoples will see you as having wisdom and understanding. When they hear of all these laws, they will say, 'This great nation is surely a wise and understanding people.' 7 For what great nation is there that has God as close to them as ADONAI our God is, whenever we call on him? 8 What great nation is there that has laws and rulings as just as this entire Torah which I am setting before you today? 9 Only be careful, and watch yourselves diligently as long as you live, so that you won't forget what you saw with your own eyes, so that these things won't vanish from your hearts. Rather, make them known to your children and grandchildren - 10 the day you stood before ADONAI your God at Horev, when ADONAI said to me, 'Gather the people to me, and I will make them hear my very words, so that they will learn to hold me in awe as long as they live on earth, and so that they will teach their children.' 11 You approached and stood at the foot of the mountain; and the mountain blazed with fire to the heart of heaven, with darkness, clouds and thick mist. 12 Then ADONAI spoke to you out of the fire! You heard the sound of words but saw no shape, there was only a voice. 13 He proclaimed his covenant to you, which he ordered you to obey, the Ten Words; and he wrote them on two stone tablets. 14 At that time ADONAI ordered me to teach you laws and rulings, so that you would live by them in the land you are entering in order to take possession of it. 15 "Therefore, watch out for yourselves! Since you did not see a shape of any kind on the day ADONAI spoke to you in Horev from the fire, 16 do not become corrupt and make yourselves a carved image having the shape of any figure - not a representation of a human being, male or female, 17 or a representation of any animal on earth, or a representation of any bird that flies in the air, 18 or a representation of anything that creeps along on the ground, or a representation of any fish in the water below the shoreline. 19 For the same reason, do not look up at the sky, at the sun, moon, stars and everything in the sky, and be drawn away to worship and serve them; ADONAI your God has allotted these to all the peoples under the entire sky. 20 No, you ADONAI has taken and brought out of the smelting furnace, out of Egypt, to be a people of inheritance for him, as you are today. 21 "But ADONAI was angry with me on account of you and swore that I would not cross the Yarden and go into that good land, which ADONAI your God is giving you to inherit. 22 Rather, I must die in this land and not cross the Yarden; but you are to cross and take possession of that good land. 23 Watch out for yourselves, so that you won't forget the covenant of ADONAI your God, which he made with you, and make yourself a carved image, a representation of anything forbidden to you by ADONAI your God. 24 For ADONAI your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God. 25 "When you have had children and grandchildren, lived a long time in the land, become corrupt and made a carved image, a representation of something, and thus done what is evil in the sight of ADONAI your God and provoked him; 26 I call on the sky and the earth to witness against you today that you will quickly disappear from the land that you are crossing the Yarden to possess. You will not prolong your days there but will be completely destroyed. 27 ADONAI will scatter you among the peoples; and among the nations to which ADONAI will lead you away, you will be left few in number. 28 There you will serve gods which are the product of human hands, made of wood and stone, which can't see, hear, eat or smell. 29 However, from there you will seek ADONAI your God; and you will find him if you search after him with all your heart and being. 30 In your distress, when all these things have come upon you, in the acharit-hayamim, you will return to ADONAI your God and listen to what he says; 31 for ADONAI your God is a merciful God. He will not fail you, destroy you, or forget the covenant with your ancestors which he swore to them. 32 "Indeed, inquire about the past, before you were born: since the day God created human beings on the earth, from one end of heaven to the other, has there ever been anything as wonderful as this? Has anyone heard anything like it? 33 Did any other people ever hear the voice of God speaking out of a fire, as you have heard, and stay alive? 34 Or has God ever tried to go and take for himself a nation from the very bowels of another nation, by means of ordeals, signs, wonders, war, a mighty hand, an outstretched arm and great terrors -like all that ADONAI your God did for you in Egypt before your very eyes? 35 This was shown to you, so that you would know that ADONAI is God, and there is no other beside him. 36 From heaven he caused you to hear his voice, in order to instruct you; and on earth he caused you to see his great fire; and you heard his very words coming out from the fire. 37 Because he loved your ancestors, chose their descendants after them and brought you out of Egypt with his presence and great power, 38 in order to drive out ahead of you nations greater and stronger than you, so that he could bring you in and give you their land as an inheritance, as is the case today; 39 know today, and establish it in your heart, that ADONAI is God in heaven above and on earth below - there is no other. 40 Therefore, you are to keep his laws and mitzvot which I am giving you today, so that it will go well with you and with your children after you, and so that you will prolong your days in the land ADONAI your God is giving you forever." 41 Then Moshe separated three cities on the east side of the Yarden, toward the sunrise, 42 to which a killer might flee, that is, someone who kills by mistake a person whom he did not previously hate, and upon fleeing to one of these cities might live there. 43 The cities were Betzer in the desert, in the flatland, for the Re'uveni; Ramot in Gil'ad for the Gadi; and Golan in Bashan for the M'nashi. 44 This is the Torah which Moshe placed before the people of Isra'el - 45 these are the instructions, laws and rulings which Moshe presented to the people of Isra'el after they had come out of Egypt - 46 beyond the Yarden River, in the valley across from Beit-P'or, in the land of Sichon king of the Emori, who lived at Heshbon, whom Moshe and the people of Isra'el defeated when they came out of Egypt; 47 and they took possession of his land and the land of 'Og king of Bashan, the two kings of the Emori, who were beyond the Yarden toward the sunrise; 48 from 'Aro'er on the edge of the Arnon Valley to Mount Si'on," that is, Mount Hermon, 49 "with all the 'Aravah beyond the Yarden eastward, all the way to the Dead Sea at the foot of the slopes of Pisgah.

Deut. 5....
1 Then Moshe called to all Isra'el and said to them, "Listen, Isra'el, to the laws and rulings which I am announcing in your hearing today, so that you will learn them and take care to obey them. 2 ADONAI our God made a covenant with us at Horev. 3 ADONAI did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us -with us, who are all of us here alive today. 4 ADONAI spoke with you face to face from the fire on the mountain. 5 At that time I stood between ADONAI and you in order to tell you what ADONAI was saying; because, on account of the fire, you were afraid and wouldn't go up onto the mountain. He said, t 6 "'I am ADONAI your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, where you lived as slaves. c 7 "'You are to have no other gods before me. 8 You are not to make for yourselves a carved image or any kind of representation of anything in heaven above, on the earth beneath or in the water below the shoreline - 9 you are not to bow down to them or serve them; for I, ADONAI your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sins of the parents, also the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 10 but displaying grace to the thousandth generation of those who love me and obey my mitzvot. 11 "'You are not to misuse the name of ADONAI your God, because ADONAI will not leave unpunished someone who misuses his name. 12 "'Observe the day of Shabbat, to set it apart as holy, as ADONAI your God ordered you to do. 13 You have six days to labor and do all your work, 14 but the seventh day is a Shabbat for ADONAI your God. On it you are not to do any kind of work - not you, your son or your daughter, not your male or female slave, not your ox, your donkey or any of your other livestock, and not the foreigner staying with you inside the gates to your property - so that your male and female servants can rest just as you do. 15 You are to remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and ADONAI your God brought you out from there with a strong hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore ADONAI your God has ordered you to keep the day of Shabbat. 16 "'Honor your father and mother, as ADONAI your God ordered you to do, so that you will live long and have things go well with you in the land ADONAI your God is giving you. 17 "'Do not murder. 18 "'Do not commit adultery. 19 "'Do not steal. 20 "'Do not give false evidence against your neighbor. 21 "'Do not covet your neighbor's wife; do not covet your neighbor's house, his field, his male or female slave, his ox, his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.' 22 "These words ADONAI spoke to your entire gathering at the mountain from fire, cloud and thick mist, in a loud voice; then it ceased. But he wrote them on two stone tablets, which he gave to me. 23 When you heard the voice coming out of the darkness, as the mountain blazed with fire, you came to me, all the heads of your tribes and your leaders, 24 and said, 'Here, ADONAI our God has shown us his glory and his greatness! We have heard his voice coming from the fire, and we have seen today that God does speak with human beings, and they stay alive. 25 But why should we keep risking death? This great fire will consume us! If we hear the voice of ADONAI our God any more, we will die! 26 For who is there of all humanity that has heard the voice of the living God speaking from the fire, as we have, and stayed alive? 27 You, go near; and hear everything ADONAI our God says. Then you will tell us everything ADONAI our God says to you; and we will listen to it and do it.' 28 "ADONAI heard what you were saying when you spoke to me, and ADONAI said to me, 'I have heard what this people has said when speaking to you, and everything they have said is good. 29 Oh, how I wish their hearts would stay like this always, that they would fear me and obey all my mitzvot; so that it would go well with them and their children forever. 30 Go, tell them to return to their tents. 31 But you, stand here by me; and I will tell you all the mitzvot, laws and rulings which you are to teach them, so that they can obey them in the land I am giving them as their possession.' 32 "Therefore you are to be careful to do as ADONAI your God has ordered you; you are not to deviate either to the right or the left. 33 You are to follow the entire way which ADONAI your God has ordered you; so that you will live, things will go well with you, and you will live long in the land you are about to possess.

Deut.6.....1 "Now this is the mitzvah, the laws and rulings which ADONAI your God ordered me to teach you for you to obey in the land you are crossing over to possess, 2 so that you will fear ADONAI your God and observe all his regulations and mitzvot that I am giving you - you, your child and your grandchild - as long as you live, and so that you will have long life. 3 Therefore listen, Isra'el, and take care to obey, so that things will go well with you, and so that you will increase greatly, as ADONAI, the God of your ancestors, promised you by giving you a land flowing with milk and honey. 4 "Sh'ma, Yisra'el! ADONAI Eloheinu, ADONAI echad [Hear, Isra'el! ADONAI our God, ADONAI is one]; 5 and you are to love ADONAI your God with all your heart, all your being and all your resources. 6 These words, which I am ordering you today, are to be on your heart; 7 and you are to teach them carefully to your children. You are to talk about them when you sit at home, when you are traveling on the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them on your hand as a sign, put them at the front of a headband around your forehead, 9 and write them on the door-frames of your house and on your gates. 10 "When ADONAI your God has brought you into the land he swore to your ancestors Avraham, Yitz'chak and Ya'akov that he would give you - cities great and prosperous, which you didn't build; 11 houses full of all sorts of good things, which you didn't fill; water cisterns dug out, which you didn't dig; vineyards and olive trees, which you didn't plant - and you have eaten your fill; 12 then be careful not to forget ADONAI, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, where you lived as slaves. 13 You are to fear ADONAI your God, serve him and swear by his name. 14 You are not to follow other gods, chosen from the gods of the peoples around you; 15 because ADONAI, your God, who is here with you, is a jealous God. If you do, the anger of ADONAI your God will flare up against you and he will destroy you from the face of the earth. 16 Do not put ADONAI your God to the test, as you tested him at Massah [testing]. 17 Observe diligently the mitzvot of ADONAI your God, and his instructions and laws which he has given you. 18 You are to do what is right and good in the sight of ADONAI, so that things will go well with you, and you will enter and possess the good land ADONAI swore to your ancestors, 19 expelling all your enemies ahead of you, as ADONAI said. 20 "Some day your child will ask you, 'What is the meaning of the instructions, laws and rulings which ADONAI our God has laid down for you?' 21 Then you will tell your child, 'We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt, and ADONAI brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand. 22 ADONAI worked great and terrible signs and wonders against Egypt, Pharaoh and all his household, before our very eyes. 23 He brought us out from there in order to bring us to the land he had sworn to our ancestors that he would give us. 24 ADONAI ordered us to observe all these laws, to fear ADONAI our God, always for our own good, so that he might keep us alive, as we are today. 25 It will be righteousness for us if we are careful to obey all these mitzvot before ADONAI our God, just as he ordered us to do.'"

Deut. 7.....1 "ADONAI your God is going to bring you into the land you will enter in order to take possession of it, and he will expel many nations ahead of you -the Hitti, Girgashi, Emori, Kena'ani, P'rizi, Hivi and Y'vusi, seven nations bigger and stronger than you. 2 When he does this, when ADONAI your God hands them over ahead of you, and you defeat them, you are to destroy them completely! Do not make any covenant with them. Show them no mercy. 3 Don't intermarry with them -don't give your daughter to his son, and don't take his daughter for your son. 4 For he will turn your children away from following me in order to serve other gods. If this happens, the anger of ADONAI will flare up against you, and he will quickly destroy you. 5 No, treat them this way: break down their altars, smash their standing-stones to pieces, cut down their sacred poles and burn up their carved images completely. 6 For you are a people set apart as holy for ADONAI your God. ADONAI your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his own unique treasure. 7 ADONAI didn't set his heart on you or choose you because you numbered more than any other people - on the contrary, you were the fewest of all peoples. 8 Rather, it was because ADONAI loved you, and because he wanted to keep the oath which he had sworn to your ancestors, that ADONAI brought you out with a strong hand and redeemed you from a life of slavery under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. 9 From this you can know that ADONAI your God is indeed God, the faithful God, who keeps his covenant and extends grace to those who love him and observe his mitzvot, to a thousand generations. 10 But he repays those who hate him to their face and destroys them. He will not be slow to deal with someone who hates him; he will repay him to his face. 11 Therefore, you are to keep the mitzvot, laws and rulings which I am giving you today, and obey them.


Deut.7....12 "Because you are listening to these rulings, keeping and obeying them, ADONAI your God will keep with you the covenant and mercy that he swore to your ancestors. 13 He will love you, bless you and increase your numbers; he will also bless the fruit of your body and the fruit of your ground - your grain, wine, olive oil and the young of your cattle and sheep - in the land he swore to your ancestors that he would give you. 14 You will be blessed more than all other peoples; there will not be a sterile male or female among you, and the same with your livestock. 15 ADONAI will remove all illness from you - he will not afflict you with any of Egypt's dreadful diseases, which you have known; instead, he will lay them on those who hate you. 16 You are to devour all the peoples that ADONAI your God hands over to you - show them no pity, and do not serve their gods, because that will become a trap for you. 17 If you think to yourselves, 'These nations outnumber us; how can we dispossess them?' 18 nevertheless, you are not to be afraid of them; you are to remember well what ADONAI your God did to Pharaoh and all of Egypt - 19 the great ordeals which you yourself saw, and the signs, wonders, strong hand and outstretched arm by which ADONAI your God brought you out. ADONAI will do the same to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. 20 Moreover, ADONAI your God will send the hornet among them until those who are left and those who hide themselves perish ahead of you. 21 You are not to be frightened of them, because ADONAI your God is there with you, a God great and fearsome. 22 ADONAI your God will expel those nations ahead of you little by little; you can't put an end to them all at once, or the wild animals will become too numerous for you. 23 Nevertheless, ADONAI your God will give them over to you, sending one disaster after another upon them until they have been destroyed. 24 He will hand their kings over to you, and you will wipe out their name from under heaven; none of them will be able to stand against you until you have destroyed them. 25 You are to burn up completely the carved statues of their gods. Don't be greedy for the silver or gold on them; don't take it with you, or you will be trapped by it; for it is abhorrent to ADONAI your God. 26 Don't bring something abhorrent into your house, or you will share in the curse that is on it; instead, you are to detest it completely, loathe it utterly; for it is set apart for destruction.

Deut,8....1 "All the mitzvot I am giving you today you are to take care to obey, so that you will live, increase your numbers, enter and take possession of the land ADONAI swore about to your ancestors. 2 You are to remember everything of the way in which ADONAI led you these forty years in the desert, humbling and testing you in order to know what was in your heart - whether you would obey his mitzvot or not. 3 He humbled you, allowing you to become hungry, and then fed you with man, which neither you nor your ancestors had ever known, to make you understand that a person does not live on food alone but on everything that comes from the mouth of ADONAI. 4 During these forty years the clothing you were wearing didn't grow old, and your feet didn't swell up. 5 Think deeply about it: ADONAI was disciplining you, just as a man disciplines his child. 6 So obey the mitzvot of ADONAI your God, living as he directs and fearing him. 7 For ADONAI your God is bringing you into a good land, a land with streams, springs and water welling up from the depths in valleys and on hillsides. 8 It is a land of wheat and barley, grapevines, fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey; 9 a land where you will eat food in abundance and lack nothing in it; a land where the stones contain iron and the hills can be mined for copper. 10 So you will eat and be satisfied, and you will bless ADONAI your God for the good land he has given you. 11 "Be careful not to forget ADONAI your God by not obeying his mitzvot, rulings and regulations that I am giving you today. 12 Otherwise, after you have eaten and are satisfied, built fine houses and lived in them, 13 and increased your herds, flocks, silver, gold and everything else you own, 14 you will become proud-hearted. Forgetting ADONAI your God - who brought you out of the land of Egypt, where you lived as slaves; 15 who led you through the vast and fearsome desert, with its poisonous snakes, scorpions and waterless, thirsty ground; who brought water out of flint rock for you; 16 who fed you in the desert with man, unknown to your ancestors; all the while humbling and testing you in order to do you good in the end - 17 you will think to yourself, 'My own power and the strength of my own hand have gotten me this wealth.' 18 No, you are to remember ADONAI your God, because it is he who is giving you the power to get wealth, in order to confirm his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as is happening even today. 19 If you forget ADONAI your God, follow other gods and serve and worship them, I am warning you in advance today that you will certainly perish. 20 You will perish just like the nations that ADONAI is causing to perish ahead of you, because you will not have heeded the voice of ADONAI your God."

Deut.9....1 "Listen, Isra'el! You are to cross the Yarden today, to go in and dispossess nations greater and stronger than you, great cities fortified up to the sky; 2 a people great and tall, the 'Anakim, whom you know about and of whom you have heard it said, 'Who can stand before the descendants of 'Anak?' 3 Therefore understand today that ADONAI your God will himself cross ahead of you as a devouring fire; he will destroy them and bring them down before you. Thus will you drive them out and cause them to perish quickly, as ADONAI has said to you. 4 "Don't think to yourself, after your God has pushed them out ahead of you, 'It is to reward my righteousness that ADONAI has brought me in to take possession of this land.' No, it is because these nations have been so wicked that ADONAI is driving them out ahead of you. 5 It is not because of your righteousness, or because your heart is so upright, that you go in to take possession of their land; but to punish the wickedness of these nations that ADONAI your God is driving them out ahead of you, and also to confirm the word which ADONAI swore to your ancestors, Avraham, Yitz'chak and Ya'akov. 6 Therefore, understand that it is not for your righteousness that ADONAI your God is giving you this good land to possess. "For you are a stiffnecked people! 7 Remember, don't forget, how you made ADONAI your God angry in the desert. From the day you left the land of Egypt till you arrived at this place, you have been rebelling against ADONAI. 8 Also in Horev you made ADONAI angry -ADONAI was angry enough with you to destroy you! 9 I had gone up the mountain to receive the stone tablets, the tablets on which was written the covenant ADONAI had made with you. I stayed on the mountain forty days and nights without eating food or drinking water. 10 Then ADONAI gave me the two stone tablets inscribed by the finger of God; and on them was written every word ADONAI had said to you from the fire on the mountain the day of the assembly. 11 Yes, after forty days and nights ADONAI gave me the two stone tablets, the tablets of the covenant. 12 Then ADONAI said to me, 'Get up, and hurry down from here, because your people, whom you led out of Egypt, have become corrupt. So quickly have they turned aside from the way I ordered them to follow! They have made themselves a metal image!' 13 Moreover, ADONAI said to me, 'I have seen this people, and what a stiffnecked people they are! 14 Let me alone, so that I can put an end to them and blot out their name from under heaven! I will make out of you a nation bigger and stronger than they.' 15 I came down from the mountain. The mountain was blazing fire, and the two tablets of the covenant were in my two hands. 16 I looked, and there, you had sinned against ADONAI your God! You had made yourselves a metal calf, you had turned aside quickly from the way ADONAI had ordered you to follow. 17 I seized the two tablets, threw them out of my two hands and broke them before your eyes. 18 Then I fell down before ADONAI, as I had the first time, for forty days and nights, during which time I neither ate food nor drank water, all because of the sin you committed by doing what was evil in the sight of ADONAI and thus provoking him. 19 I was terrified that because of how angry ADONAI was at you, of how heatedly displeased he was, that he would destroy you. But ADONAI listened to me that time too. 20 In addition, ADONAI was very angry with Aharon and would have destroyed him; but I prayed for Aharon also at the same time. 21 I took your sin, the calf you had made, and burned it up in the fire, beat it to pieces, and ground it up still smaller, until it was as fine as dust; then I threw its dust into the stream coming down from the mountain. 22 "Again at Tav'erah, Massah and Kivrot-HaTa'avah you made ADONAI angry; 23 and when ADONAI sent you off from Kadesh-Barnea by saying, 'Go up and take possession of the land I have given you,' you rebelled against the order of ADONAI your God - you neither trusted him nor heeded what he said. 24 You have been rebelling against ADONAI from the day I first knew you! 25 "So I fell down before ADONAI for those forty days and nights; and I lay there; because ADONAI had said he would destroy you. 26 I prayed to ADONAI ; I said, 'Adonai ELOHIM! Don't destroy your people, your inheritance! You redeemed them through your greatness, you brought them out of Egypt with a strong hand! 27 Remember your servants Avraham, Yitz'chak and Ya'akov! Don't focus on the stubbornness of this people, or on their wickedness or on their sin. 28 Otherwise, the land you brought us out of will say, "It is because ADONAI wasn't able to bring them into the land he promised them and because he hated them that he has brought them out to kill them in the desert." 29 But in fact they are your people, your inheritance, whom you brought out by your great power and your outstretched arm.'

Deut. 10....1 "At that time ADONAI said to me, 'Cut yourself two stone tablets like the first ones, come up to me on the mountain, and make yourself an ark of wood. 2 I will inscribe on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke; and you are to put them in the ark.' 3 So I made an ark of acacia-wood and cut two stone tablets like the first, then climbed the mountain with the two tablets in my hand. 4 He inscribed the tablets with the same inscription as before, the Ten Words which ADONAI proclaimed to you from the fire on the mountain the day of the assembly; and ADONAI gave them to me. 5 I turned, came down the mountain and put the tablets in the ark I had made; and there they remain; as ADONAI ordered me. 6 "The people of Isra'el traveled from the wells of B'nei-Ya'akan to Moserah, where Aharon died and was buried; and El'azar his son took his place, serving in the office of cohen. 7 From there they traveled to Gudgod, and from Gudgod to Yotvatah, a region with running streams. 8 At that time ADONAI set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark for the covenant of ADONAI and to stand before ADONAI to serve him and to bless in his name, as they still do today. 9 This is why Levi has no share or inheritance with his brothers; ADONAI is his inheritance, as ADONAI your God had said to him. 10 "I stayed on the mountain forty days and nights, as previously; and ADONAI listened to me that time too -ADONAI would not destroy you. 11 Then ADONAI said to me, 'Get up, and go on your way at the head of the people, so that they can enter and take possession of the land I swore to their ancestors that I would give them.' 12 "So now, Isra'el, all that ADONAI your God asks from you is to fear ADONAI your God, follow all his ways, love him and serve ADONAI your God with all your heart and all your being; 13 to obey, for your own good, the mitzvot and regulations of ADONAI which I am giving you today. 14 See, the sky, the heaven beyond the sky, the earth and everything on it all belong to ADONAI your God. 15 Only ADONAI took enough pleasure in your ancestors to love them and choose their descendants after them -yourselves -above all peoples, as he still does today. 16 Therefore, circumcise the foreskin of your heart; and don't be stiffnecked any longer! 17 For ADONAI your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, mighty and awesome God, who has no favorites and accepts no bribes. 18 He secures justice for the orphan and the widow; he loves the foreigner, giving him food and clothing. 19 Therefore you are to love the foreigner, since you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. 20 You are to fear ADONAI your God, serve him, cling to him and swear by his name. 21 He is your praise, and he is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things, which you have seen with your own eyes. 22 Your ancestors went down into Egypt with only seventy people, but now ADONAI your God has made your numbers as many as the stars in the sky!

Deut. 11....1 "Therefore, you are to love ADONAI your God and always obey his commission, regulations, rulings and mitzvot. 2 Today it is you I am addressing -not your children, who haven't known or experienced the discipline of ADONAI your God, his greatness, his strong hand, his outstretched arm, 3 his signs and his actions which he did in Egypt to Pharaoh the king of Egypt and to his entire country. 4 They didn't experience what he did to Egypt's army, horses and chariots -how ADONAI overwhelmed them with the water of the Sea of Suf as they were pursuing you, so that they remain destroyed to this day. 5 They didn't experience what he kept doing for you in the desert until you arrived at this place; 6 or what he did to Datan and Aviram, the sons of Eli'av the descendant of Re'uven -how the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, along with their households, tents and every living thing in their company, there in front of all Isra'el. 7 But you have seen with your own eyes all these great deeds of ADONAI. 8 Therefore, you are to keep every mitzvah I am giving you today; so that you will be strong enough to go in and take possession of the land you are crossing over to conquer; 9 and so that you will live long in the land ADONAI swore to give to your ancestors and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey. 10 "For the land you are entering in order to take possession of it isn't like the land of Egypt. There you would sow your seed and had to use your feet to operate its irrigation system, as in a vegetable garden. 11 But the land you are crossing over to take possession of is a land of hills and valleys, which soaks up water when rain falls from the sky. 12 It is a land ADONAI your God cares for. The eyes of ADONAI your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. 13 "So if you listen carefully to my mitzvot which I am giving you today, to love ADONAI your God and serve him with all your heart and all your being; 14 then, [says ADONAI,] 'I will give your land its rain at the right seasons, including the early fall rains and the late spring rains; so that you can gather in your wheat, new wine and olive oil; 15 and I will give your fields grass for your livestock; with the result that you will eat and be satisfied.' 16 But be careful not to let yourselves be seduced, so that you turn aside, serving other gods and worshipping them. 17 If you do, the anger of ADONAI will blaze up against you. He will shut up the sky, so that there will be no rain. The ground will not yield its produce, and you will quickly pass away from the good land ADONAI is giving you. 18 Therefore, you are to store up these words of mine in your heart and in all your being; tie them on your hand as a sign; put them at the front of a headband around your forehead; 19 teach them carefully to your children, talking about them when you sit at home, when you are traveling on the road, when you lie down and when you get up; 20 and write them on the door-frames of your house and on your gates - 21 so that you and your children will live long on the land ADONAI swore to your ancestors that he would give them for as long as there is sky above the earth. (vii & Maftir) 22 "For if you will take care to obey all these mitzvot I am giving you, to do them, to love ADONAI your God, to follow all his ways and to cling to him, 23 then ADONAI will expel all these nations ahead of you; and you will dispossess nations bigger and stronger than you are. 24 Wherever the sole of your foot steps will be yours; your territory will extend from the desert to the L'vanon and from the River, the Euphrates River, to the Western Sea. 25 No one will be able to withstand you; ADONAI your God will place the fear and dread of you on all the land you step on, as he told you.

I SAY TO YOU TODAY.....do your best to present yourself to our Elohim as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. Because as it is written....for the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

The money grabbers are out there...wolves in sheep's clothing....preying on YOU AND ME...desirous for us to listen to their words. They do not lie completely....their words are full of flatteries and praises and they recite our Elohim's words eloquently but do they believe? Some believe what they want to believe...some believe what they have been taught but if they have been taught false doctrine...where does that leave you and I if we listen to them, follow them....hang on every word that proceeds out of their mouths?


We must be careful....we must be alert. Trust in no man but put your trust in our Elohim because He will guide you. He will show you His Way. He is faithful to be with you and for you. Seek Him and He will be there for you.

Our Messiah Yeshua taught Torah. The early church was Torah observant. This IS the Way of Elohim.

Read your Bible...get to know it. Study it. Study Torah!

And please, take into your hearts.....your spirit...His Instructions that are the same today, yesterday and forever!

With love to you in and through our Messiah and soon coming King Yeshua..His Ama gloria
