Sabbath Day (Gen.2: 1 -3 & Ex.20: 8 – 11) By r. a. Saturday, Mar.14, 2020
In Messiah’s name: “For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous”. (1Jn.5: 3)
There are millions of “Christians” who say they believe in Jesus and love God. They express loving adoration for Jesus and “believe on his name” and even worship him. Many are led to believe– by deceived pastors — that Jesus is the “Creator-God in the flesh”. These same “Christians” will get baptized, have hands laid on them and claim they received the Holy Spirit. They will, and do many “good works” in the name of Jesus.
Question: Are the above expressions proof that a person is a true follower of Messiah. Does it prove they love the Creator-God, the great I AM?
Answer: according to the word of the Creator-God, the great I AM, and his son, Messiah, absolutely not!
To begin with, here’s a very brief off-topic-sidebar. Neither the apostles nor Paul knew anyone with the name “Jesus”. The letter “J” didn’t exist until about 500 yrs ago. The name “Jesus” is meaningless. That is, when you check the meaning of the name “Jesus” in Strong’s Greek concordance #2424, it refers one to the Hebrew name “Yehoshua” #3091 which means “God Saves”. Yet, when Messiah returns, he will have a NEW NAME.(Rev.3: 12)
Four Proof Texts: Believing In/On The Name Of Jesus Does Not Save
BTW, you will never hear a sermon preached on number one in the Catholic or Protestant churches.
(1) Matt.15: 7 – 9 “You hypocrites, well did Isaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draws near unto me with their mouth, and honours me (Creator-God) with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men”.
(2) Matt.7: 21 -23 “Not every one that says to me, Lord, Lord, (teacher/master) shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven”.
“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?”
“And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity (sin/lawlessness)”. (Matt.7: 21- 23)
(3) Matt.19: 16 -17) “And, behold, one (a young man) came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? Messiah answered … if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments”. (Matt.19: 16 -17)
(4) Ex.31: 13 -14) “Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my Sabbaths (plural) ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; … every one that defileth (to lower in status, value, esteem, quality, to corrupt ) it (the Sabbaths) shall surely be put to death:” (Ex.31: 13 -14)
The 7th day Sabbath and the Father’s holy day Sabbaths (Festival days) are a “sign/mark” which identifies the people of God and the true followers of Christ. Please notice that those who defile or work on these Sabbaths will be put to eternal death.
Every week millions of “believe in/on Jesus” Christians” break the fourth commandment – the Creator-God’s holy day Sabbath. Instead they worship on the “day of the sun”- -Sunday, the first day of the week.
In addition, they reject the Creator’s Holy Sabbath Day Festivals and observe pagan festivals which the great I AM condemns. They may be sincere in what they believe to be the truth, but they have accepted the smooth things and lies preached to them by their deceived Pastors/Priests.
Finally, Messiah magnified the law (Isa.42: 21), he did not destroy/abolish it (Matt5: 17). Those who are wise and fear the Creator will flee from the Babylonian Church, the Mother of Harlots (Rev.17: 5) and do the commandments, holy days and judgments ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God. Thus, they will inherit eternal life and rule a thousand years with Christ, on this earth, in the coming “Kingdom of God”.
All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth – God’s Word (Jn.17: 17 & Ps.119: 142)
