Sabbath Day (Gen.2: 1- 3 & Ex.20: 8 – 11) ——— By r. a. ———–Saturday, May 01/21
In Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name: : .. ” the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed”. (Ex.31: 16 – 17)
What does it mean to “trust” someone or some thing? Here’s the definition of “trust”. It’s defined as “reliance on the character, ability, strength and truth of someone or something. It’s characterized by “certainty”- a guaranteed promise!
In this present age, the Creator-God does not come to the minds of many as a source of trust. The majority of humans have placed their trust in governments, politicians, armies, police, scientists, ungodly scholars, guns, vaccines, masks, self-deceived pastors and false church doctrines.
In fact, much of the collective don’t even believe there is a Creator-God because they have been brainwashed and indoctrinated by servants of the serpent. I’ll just leave it at that.
The following 17 verses below picture, on “trust in God alone”, were taken from my Jerusalem Bible. It was the first and only bible I bought. I have a King James bible (not the 1611 version) which was given to me.
The verses reveal some of the ordeals, circumstances and situations one may be confronted and faced with throughout one’s life.
As a side note intro, I like to quote Proverbs 3: 5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding”.
From the Book Of Ecclesiasticus Chpt.11 verses 11 – 28
11 Some people work very hard at top speed, only to find themselves falling further behind.
12 Or there is the slow kind of person, needing help, poor in possessions and rich in poverty; and the Lord turns a favourable eye on him, lifts him out of his wretched condition,
13 and enables him to hold his head high, thus causing general astonishment.
14 Good and bad, life and death, poverty and wealth, all come from the Lord.
17 To the devout the Lord’s gift remains constant, and his favour will be there to lead them for ever.
18 Others grow rich by pinching and scraping, and here is the reward they receive for it:
19 although they say, ‘Now I can sit back and enjoy the benefit of what I have got,’ they do not know how long this will last; they will have to leave their goods to others and die.
20 Stick to your job, work hard at it and grow old at your work.
21 Do not admire the achievements of sinners, trust the Lord and mind your own business; since it is a trifle in the eyes of the Lord, in a moment, suddenly to make the poor rich.
22 The blessings of the Lord is the reward of the devout, in a moment God brings his blessing to flower.
23 Do not say, ‘What are my needs, how much shall I have in the future?’
24 And do not say, ‘I am self-sufficient, what disaster can affect me now?’
25 In prosperous times, disasters are forgotten and in times of disaster, no one remembers prosperity.
26 Yet it is a trifle for the Lord on the day someone dies to repay him as his conduct deserves.
27 A moment’s adversity, and pleasures are forgotten; in a person’s last hour his deeds will stand revealed.
28 Call no one fortunate before his death; it is by his end that someone will be known.
All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Yahshua’s name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth – God’s Word (Jn.17: 17 & Ps.119: 142)
