Sabbath Day (Gen. 2: 1 -3 & Ex.20: 8 – 11) By r. a. Saturday, July 11, 2020
In Messiah’s name: “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth… they resist the truth: men of corrupt (dishonest, lawless) minds”. (2 Tim 3: 7 – 8)
Because of the recent and ongoing violence and cultural destruction within the USA, and is now trickling into Canada, I thought I’d post a few excerpts of a recent letter (June 3/20) that was sent to president Trump. It was written by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò a former Vatican ambassador to the US. Some have described the letter as “powerful”.
I have also included within this Sabbath post three major causes for the wrath/anger/indignation of the Creator-God upon humankind.
Here’s a few excerpts from the Archbishop’s letter to Pres.Trump. The words/terms in italics within the excerpts are my inserts.
By the Archbishop — In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority.
These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent. (this is a reference to Gen.3: 14 – 15)
On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven.
On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money.
For them the fallacious (false/deceptive) illusion of temporal well-being will one day — if they do not repent — yield to the terrible fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation (eternal death).

Three Major Causes For The Wrath/Anger Of God Upon Humankind
(1) Profaning The Sabbath: “What evil thing is this that you do, and profane (violate, dis-repect/debase) the sabbath day? Did not your fathers thus (do this), and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet you bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath”. (Nehemiah 13: 17 – 18)
Just think of the many thousands of Christian/Catholic churches profaning the Sabbath every week by observing an ancient pagan day of worship – SUN-day, the first day of the week. For the love of God, the Messiah kept the Sabbath ((Lk.4: 16)
The Sabbath is the 4th command of the 10 and there is a death penalty for transgressing it! This is NOT a minor or insignificant commandment or issue. It is NOT JEWISH. Wake up! The Creator-God is angry and woe to those who toss his warnings to the ditch of disobedience!
(2) Unfaithfulness/Idolatry: “Son of man, when the land sins against me by trespassing grievously (relentlessly,committing idolatry), then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it”. (Ezekiel 14: 13)
(3) Unbelief In God: Notwithstanding they (Israel) would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the Lord their God… they rejected his statutes, and his covenant…they left all the commandments of the Lord their God…therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight (2 Kings 17: 14 – 18)
Understand this basic and fundamental scripture: As Isaiah testified and bore witness: “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.“ (Isaiah 8: 20)
That is the plumb-line, the measuring rod, in which one is able to discern the truth from the lie.
In conclusion,Christians blaspheme the great I AM, the Creator-God through their disobedience of the law as “Isaiah prophesied… in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men… Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition. (Mk.7: 7, 9,13)
No wonder the Christians and their churches are being targeted around the world. God’s hand is surely behind it. Do the truth and reject the lies!
All glory, praise and honour to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name.
Peace, blessings and protection to those who seek and love the truth — God’s word (Jn.17: 17 & Ps. 119: 142)
