Double-Deception Handed Down -- Are You Propagating It?

Addendum To How To Build Stable Data

Answer:

Chances are, that you are; for these came down to the world in "apples of gold in settings of silver" and you can not tell the difference between truths and untruths.

When you become aware that you are, would you stop?


http://kelleyhighway.blogspot.com/2014/06/apples-of-gold-in-picture-of-silver.html

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
(Pro 25:11 KJV)

A word spoken at the right time Is like apples of gold in settings of silver.
(Pro 25:11 The Scriptures 1998+)

By looking at the above picture, I made an assumption that it is generally pleasant to the eyes to behold, and is readily acceptable to many. Maybe, only a few may not like it, if there are any.

This proverb is a neutral principle handed down to us by King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, who understood this principle very well. We will try to "rightly divide these words" in a moment, but hold this thought for now.

Neutral -- meaning -- the principle can be used both ways, for good or bad purposes.

I have been moved to answer several contentions of the truths about the true Sabbaths, and a few other truths also that I have already cleared, personally, firsthand, of the Scriptures that were brought to my attention.

But rather than pointing out why the contentions were untruths, my attention was brought, specially, to the kind of deception which today can be said as a double deception and the victim (the majority of peoples) is twice or many times over, deceived.

Many of the contenders are Saturday Sabbatarians -- The SDAs or Adventists, some Messianics, and a few Jewish contenders.

I have been a Saturday Sabbatarian for most of my life, backslided, became an atheist, but eventually got back because of my friends -- two Muslims, one Hindu, one into Tao, one Shintu from Japan, and some practicing Hare Krishna. These friends of mine were either trying to convert me to their faith or were just curious as to what happened to me.

One of my Muslim friends have caused the sparked of interest in me to searching the truths. In short, I choose the Bible though, because it has been said it can correct its errors, by proving itself (Isa 8:20,28:10,13), provided one knows How To Build Stable Data.

To the Torah and to the Testimony! If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because there is no light to them!
(Isa 8:20 HRB)

For precept must be on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little.
(Isa 28:10 HRB)

But the Word of יהוה was to them, “Command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little,” so that they go and shall stumble backward, and be broken and snared and taken captive.
(Isa 28:13 The Scriptures 1998+)

Please see: How The Bible Became My Stable Data

A word of warning: Most people are taught, the way we are taught, to build dogmas and doctrines. Except science, but with concealment, so we cannot apply the same scientific methods to other areas and aspects of our lives. We were not taught How To Build Stable Data. I am stating it, to bring it to one's attention. And not to disrespect.

So, I have great respect to all Saturday Sabbatarians, they are some of the best and brightest people on our planet. And also some of the most steadfast people on the planet. This is why they are most dogmatic about their beliefs. And most of these beliefs are handed down spoon-fed on "silver" spoon through tradition.

Our adversary is cunning, and uses this principle in Proverbs 25:11 to deceive many. The intent of this essay and short study is to bring to light, to one's awareness, the "settings or pictures of silver" that this proverb is making a comparison to.

Again, let me state that again:

The intent of this essay and short study is to bring to light, to one's awareness, the "pictures or settings of silver" that this proverb is making a comparison to.

To bring to one's attention what this "pictures or settings of silver" meant. Because it sits at the border of our awareness.

R.D. Laing's "knots":

The range of what we think and do
is limited by what we fail to notice.
And because we fail to notice
that we fail to notice
there is little we can do
to change
until we notice
how failing to notice
shapes our thoughts and deeds
Vital Lies, Simple Truths: The Psychology of Self Deception, p.24 By Daniel Goleman

Hoping the reader will begin to notice the "pictures or settings of silver" in everything around us, thereby be empowered to do due diligence on these as well, Or to ignore them by building yet hardened dogmas to cover the "pictures of silver" with another of the same.

When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth he will either quit being mistaken or cease being honest.
Attorney Richard Humpal

Now, let us dissect this verse with Strong's Hebrew Dictionary:

A word-H1697 fitly-H5921 H655 spoken-H1696 is like apples-H8598 of gold-H2091 in pictures-H4906 of silver.H3701 (Pro 25:11 KJV+)

A quick emphasis: (mine, feel free to check the Strong's reference that follows immediately)

A matter of thing, fitly presented, is like apples shimmering in imaginations of money.
(Pro 25:11 HLVersion)

Is that a little bit clearer?

I actually like the KJV and The Scriptures 1998+ rendering of it as: "apples of gold in pictures or settings of silver", because of its variableness in application. My version (HLVersion) above is just one variation of the many. Please see the Strong's reference that follows immediately below.

Let us break this analogy for our purposes in this study.

"apples of gold"

this is the main subject, theme; the focal point;

can mean any fruit that is healthy, full of life giving essentials,

Of gold -- which means shimmering -- it catches our attention and ignites our desire to want to have it, and our awareness is focused on this.

"in pictures or settings of silver"

in the above picture, this is the background and the border frame in silver,

this is the background information, the "behind-the-scenes", the frame, the context;

this is the border of our awareness, taken lightly almost always automatically with assumed information,

Here we see examples of this "pictures or settings of silver" being used in good and bad situations:

tip

tip is short for "To Insure Prompt" service.

a sum of money given to someone as a reward for their services. synonyms: gratuity, baksheesh; present, gift, reward

bribe

verb
1. persuade (someone) to act in one's favor, typically illegally or dishonestly, by a gift of money or other inducement. "an undercover agent bribed the judge into giving a lenient sentence"
synonyms: buy off, pay off, suborn; informal grease someone's palm, fix, square

noun
noun: bribe; plural noun: bribes
1. a sum of money or other inducement offered or given in this way.
synonyms: inducement, incentive, payola; informal payoff, kickback, boodle, sweetener

In today's context: imagine being presented with a job position ("apples of gold") that already pays a high salary, and not yet counting the perks and fringe benefits that comes with it ("pictures or settings of silver").

King Solomon is saying: "A matter of thing fitly presented" is like that. Now, hold that thought. This is just a simple one level operation: the individual level.

But, double deception is not as simple as that though, there is more to it than meets the eye, which the rest of this essay hopes to convey.

Definitions:

Deception
- Deception, beguilement, deceit, bluff, mystification and subterfuge are acts to propagate beliefs of things that are not true, or not the whole truth (as in half-truths or omission). Deception can involve dissimulation, propaganda, and sleight of hand, as well as distraction, camouflage, or concealment. There is also self-deception, as in bad faith.
-- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deception

Bad Faith
- Bad faith (Latin: mala fides) is double mindedness or double heartedness in duplicity, fraud, or deception.[1] It may involve intentional deceit of others, or self-deception.
- The expression “bad faith” is associated with “double heartedness”,[1] which is also translated as “double mindedness”.[2][3][4] A bad faith belief may be formed through self-deception, being double minded, or "of two minds", which is associated with faith, belief, attitude, and loyalty.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bad_faith

Double Deception
- An embedded deception where a research participant thinks he is in the debriefing episode but it is not.
-- Psychology Dictionary: What is DUAL CONSCIOUSNESS, DOUBLE DECEPTION? definition of DUAL CONSCIOUSNESS, DOUBLE DECEPTION (Psychology Dictionary)

Therefore: Double Deception - (borrowing from the definition above quoted from Wikipedia)

Double Deception
is to propagate a dual beliefs of things that are not true, or not the whole truth (as in half-truths or omission). And at the heart of this Dual Consciousness is self-deception.

Therefore: Dual Deception is Self Deception at the core. Please take note of this.

Self-deception operates both at the level of the individual, and in the collective awareness of the group. To belong to a group of any sort, the tacit price of membership is to agree not to notice one's own feelings of uneasiness and misgiving, and certainly not to question anything that challenges the group's way of doing things.
Vital Lies, Simple Truths: The Psychology of Self Deception, p.13 By Daniel Goleman

Note: Self-deception operates on both the individual level and the collective awareness of the group. So now, let us take into account the first simple example above which operates on the level of the individual.

Note: a group, is composed of two or more persons, e.g.: a couple, a family unit, circles of friends, team mates, small groups, a class, a church, a workgroup, and the like.

And also please take note of this: that the "collective awareness of the group" has an influence on the individual.

The "tacit price of membership to a group" is the "pictures or settings of silver", or the border of our awareness which most people are taking into account almost always automatically with assumed information.

Did you catch that?

Again: The "tacit price of membership to a group" is the "pictures or settings of silver", or the border of our awareness which most people are taking into account almost always automatically with assumed information.

And a person deceived by this is twice or many times over, deceived, depending on how many layers of deceit (pictures of silver) that was built there from. And time, usually, is the ally. This is why history accounts are usually employed in this.

Example is found in this site about the change of the Sabbath from "Saturday" to Sunday:

How The Sabbath Was Changed | Sabbath Truth
http://www.sabbathtruth.com/sabbath-history/how-the-sabbath-was-changed

Let us find out which information we can find to be assumed information:

It is assumed that Saturday is the seventh day of the week.

It is assumed that Sunday is the first day of the week.

It is assumed that the word Sabbath in the Bible refers to Saturday.

Here is the clincher that concludes the assumed seventh day to be Saturday: The Catholic Church Admits to have changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday.

Wow! Did you catch that? Or Shall I point it out?

At this point, one is either already confused or have become even more dogmatic about it.

If confused, it is a good thing for now you have become aware that there are things that you need to get on solid ground on by getting rid of the assumptions. The question is how. The simple answer is "to the Torah and to the Testimony".

If dogmatic, then this essay and short study hopes to point out where to look to be able to see and hear.

By quoting history, specially of an authority -- the Catholic Church -- it employs a tacit group agreements, in this case these are:

collective agreements on all assumptions

collective agreements on the opposing beliefs and doctrines and teachings -- the Catholic Church

recognition by an authority -- the Catholic Church -- clinches all assumptions as truths, automatically and unconsciously.

Omission is also a tool of deception

In the example site, one will not be able to find what information was omitted. Because the writer did not even know what was omitted.

The sources of the historical accounts are the Catholic Church, and they are responsible for the information omitted.

The information omitted was the order of the days of the week.

Remember the accounts ONLY assumed the first day is Sunday, and the Seventh day is Saturday.

The names of the days are in some cases derived from Teutonic deities or, such as in Romance languages, from Roman deities. The early Romans, around the first century, used Saturday as the first day of the week. As the worshipping of the Sun increased, the Sun's day (Sunday) advanced from position of the second day to the first day of the week (and saturday became the seventh day).
"Origin of the names of the days." Encyclopedia Mythica from Encyclopedia Mythica Online.
http://www.pantheon.org/miscellaneous/origin_days.html
[Nov 10, 2014].

Another information that was omitted is the Gregorian Calendar that hangs on a wall. And in this, it sits on the background.

Because it is omitted, no one can question it vocally, except at the back of one's mind, and since no one can answer the questions lingering on one's mind readily, this takes a life of its own and becomes an assumed truth.

This operates automatically, unconsciously. Meaning, one is not aware of this taking shape on its own in one's mind.

One will even try to find data to support it, and one will find the same kind of information, and thus create a dogma.

Unless one, consciously begin to investigate the facts one received on a "subject" ("the apples of gold");

And unless one, consciously puts attention to the background information also, and discovers some omitted information, ("the pictures or settings of silver") and investigate them also in the same manner, one will not be able to find assumed truths.

I would not be surprised that even though this essay pointed out the assumed truths through omission, some will still not be able to see it. Because of the "tacit agreement one has to the collective awareness of the group one belongs to" one has denied oneself the revelation of the assumed truths, thereby deceiving oneself.

This is "self deception" induced by the "tacit agreement of one to the collective awareness of the group one belongs to".

Therefore, no one can really helped it, unless the Ruach HaQodesh moves their hearts and minds and give them the understanding.

There are many things that we unconsciously choose to attached ourselves to a group.

  • Things such as job and retirement benefits, family, friendship, fellowship in church, projects, even the giving of tithes and offerings,

  • activities and extra activities, personal preferences and the like,

  • "background" beliefs and teachings and doctrines, the collective tacit agreement of opposing beliefs and doctrines and teachings, rewards and recognition, and the like;

  • Things such as honor, authority, position, a feeling of belonging, a sense of pride, a joy of the heart, obsession, and the like.

This is why the message to get out of Babylon (Rev 18:4) is a personal message, to get out of a group membership, to free yourself from the grip of the group, "the tacit price of membership".

And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.1
Footnote: 1 Jer. 51:6 & 45.
(Rev 18:4 The Scriptures 1998+)

To work out your salvation with fear and trembling (Php 2:12). That is a personal message as well.

So that, my beloved, as you always obeyed – not only in my presence, but now much rather in my absence – work out your own deliverance with fear and trembling,
(Php 2:12 The Scriptures 1998+)

The wolves in sheep's clothing have already laid the "matter of things properly placed to shape ones imagination that later form the assumed beliefs in tacit agreement to a group membership." (Pro 25:11).

And handed it down to Our teachers who in turn were just as happy to propagate the same, aware or unaware of the untruths, where some even added another layer of "pictures or settings of silver" (target imagination outcome conveying conviction, or whatever frame of mind they want their target to assume, in "tacit agreement to membership of the group they consider they belong to").

An example of this is

replacing the word "Sabbath" in the Scriptures with the word "Saturday" in their teachings to clinched the beliefs of assumed truths (untruths) as truths,

there is also a video teaching in Youtube -- Time: Our Creator's Calendar Series - The Lunar Sabbath Uncovered - 119 Ministries --
http://youtu.be/v9JGifqTb48

this video teaching is refuting the Lunar Sabbath -- the true Sabbath of the Scriptures by inserting the word "ALL" in the Scripture (Psa 104:19), that is not there, and insinuates that the teachers of the Lunar Sabbaths inserted it there,

He made the moon for "ALL" appointed times; The sun knows its going down. (Psa 104:19 119 Ministries version for insinuation)

One will do well, by just reading the passage:
He made the moon for appointed times; The sun knows its going down. (Psa 104:19 The Scriptures 1998+)

And Lev 23 lists the "moedim"H4150 (the fixed appointed times of YaHuWaH) that the moon points to. And the weekly Sabbath is listed, even as the first of them.

the video would have you believe that the weekly Sabbath is not part of the "moedim" listed here in Lev 23, (self deception) even though it is listed here, by giving you reasons to believe it is not part of the list here (double deception). And interpreting scriptures to mean otherwise, which we shall point out one and how it was done,

like twisting the context such as:

"IF: Yahweh 'appointed the moon for ALL [moedim] and ALL [moedim] must involve use the moon."

"THEN (by the same logic): Yahweh has also made [the high hills for ALL wild goats and ALL wild goats must use high hills]"

The chapter is a statement of the blessedness of YaHuWaH, which proclaims different aspects of His blessedness, and the moedim is just one of them.

The context is contained in one verse alone, verse 19, which is about moedim. And it is not about inserting the word "ALL" as the teacher would want his students to assume and then believed. Verse 18 is not speaking about moedim.

The first part of it, spoke of the moon. Which Lev 23 listed the moedim that the moon points to.

And the second part of it spoke about the moedim we should know by observing the sun, which is the morning and the evening moedim such as found in Num 28:2-4.

If the sun should point to the weekly Sabbath, as the teacher of this video teaches: "counting to the Sabbath", then we should be able to tell when the Sabbath shall be by observing the sun, because counting is not really reliable, it will be pointed to in a moment.

But we can not know when the Sabbath is, just observing the sun without the knowledge of a Papal calendar hanging on a wall.

But of course, we will know when the morning and evening moedim will be by observing the sun, won't we?

So the sun was also appointed to point to moedim, but the moedim it points to, is not listed in Lev 23.

Also the sun rules the day, therefore, the Sabbath Day keeping, means keeping the daylight portion only and not including the night time.

What is listed to in Lev 23 are the moedim pointed to by the moon.

Only by looking at the moon, can one may know when Sabbath will be.

So the Sabbath of the Bible is a Lunar Sabbath, it is the first moedim listed in Lev 23, and not a Solar Sabbath as the teaching in the video would have us believed.

The video teaching continues to add dogma by saying "anyone can pull a Scripture out of context here and there."

But truth be told, the teacher in the video was actually the one inserting the word "ALL" to form an imagined out-of-context basis.

Please get me right, I respect the 119 Ministries, they too are teaching some of the truths and were just victims of the false frame ("pictures or settings of silver") that was already there.

I have observed, this people, in 119 Ministries, personally, to have changed their positions over time as they come to understanding. As they recently did with the Biblical Calendar, but except the reckoning of the Sabbath. This is not to say I am better than they are. I am not. I am learning from other teachers as well, as well as them, and I do my own due diligence also, albeit slowly advancing.

There are still teachings or commands that I need to clear, that right now, I am holding on. And they might be proven wrong when I clear them. The Sabbath, however, I have already cleared, and it is the Lunar Sabbath that is the truth. But that is not to say that you can take my word for it. You have to clear it yourself personally, firsthand so that it too, will become stable data for you.

Now, because of the "tacit agreement they have with the collective awareness of their group and the greater group they belonged to" unconsciously they are led to refute the truths. Hopefully for just a time being.

And I am just pointing out an example to drive a point in this essay, across.

Unaware that by doing so they are actually proliferating a lie, by self-deception, unawares; and hence mislead many with conviction.

And thus, passing on the same tradition to the students who become teachers and the cycle continues.

Consider the etymology of the word "nice" for example:

nice
nīs
adjective

1. pleasant; agreeable; satisfactory.

2. fine or subtle.

Origin
Middle English (in the sense ‘stupid’): from Old French, from Latin nescius ‘ignorant,’ from nescire ‘not know.’ Other early senses included ‘coy, reserved,’ giving rise to ‘fastidious, scrupulous’: this led both to the sense ‘fine, subtle’ (regarded by some as the “correct” sense), and to the main current senses.

Now consider the word "wicked" which today:

wicked

means "evil or morally wrong".

To those of you who have watched "Harry Potter" the character Ron Weasley uses this word as an expression of wonderment.

The word "wicked" is the "apples of gold"; and "fitly spoken" is the "pictures or settings of silver" which is "Harry Potter the movie", in this case.

This is just one example of a "word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver", being used to influence an evolution of a word.

In a few years from now, we would not be surprise that the word "wicked" from being "evil or morally wrong" shall become an expression of wonderment.

While at the same time, during the transitionary period, it delivers the subliminal message of being "evil or morally wrong" is now publicly acceptable, surreptitiously, to the populace whose majority have watched this movie. Before it dies down and assumes the new meaning.

Is it any wonder then, how exactly our young ones are becoming wicked? But not just the young ones, eh! Well, wonder no more.

For IF it was not for the "pictures of silver" would anyone even take a look at it? I guess not.

The apostle John in Rev 13:15 clearly states that the "spirit"-- this entity that we cannot see, the powers-that-be, is responsible in this deception because No One would strongly worship the image of the beast if they knew it was the image of the beast.

And there was given to him to give spirit to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause to be killed as many as would not worship the image of the beast.
(Rev 13:15 The Scriptures 1998+)

Again, already cleared:

"And there was given to him (America) to give *life or spirit OF America* to the *Image* of Papal Rome, that the *Image* of Papal Rome should both *deliver subliminal messages* and *lure* to *put an end to eternal life or be killed the final death* *a large number of people who do not strongly intend to* worship the *Image* of Papal Rome".

Please see: The Pyramid Is The Image Of The Beast

America

America is the world power today, and it gave "life or spirit" to the "image" of "Papal Rome",

Life or Spirit

means the power that rules the world today, the powers-that-be, it's not America, they are behind America, behind the UN, behind every Central Banks of all nations, behind every tax collection agencies of all nations, behind the IMF, the World Bank, the Bank of International Settlements, behind some of the largest corporations in the world today, ...

image

an icon, what is an icon of Papal Rome? Control. The powers-that-be wants to control everyone and to limit or strip away freedom. And to disguise this as democracy and freedom.

Papal Rome

represents Satanist Paganism practices, only now disguised meaning in "pictures of silver"

the pagan festivals and holidays, such as Easter, Valentines, Birthdays, Halloween, Christmas, and the like, to "lure" or "seduce" the masses, to participate with their Satanic rituals.

Just like the word "nice", from being "stupid" to today it is "pleasant". It's old meaning was buried in time.

The same can be said with truths, in the absence of "Stable Data", they could be buried in time and can never be reckoned properly by future generations.

And the method employed is "self deception" which today we call "dual deception".

Because oneself believes on the same untruths of which the collective awareness of the group believes in as well.

And, because of the "tacit agreement of one to the collective awareness of the group" one is now unable to see the truths Even through "to the Torah and to The Testimony".

And one is said to have eyes, but cannot see. Have ears, but cannot hear, the truths which the Scriptures revealed through its prescribed standard -- "to The Torah and to The Testimony".

Deception embedded in the "apples of gold" and embedded twice or many times over in the "pictures or settings of silver" also.

Only a close examination, against the "Standard" the Scriptures prescribed -- "To The Torah and to The Testimony" -- will the untruths be revealed.

But because of self-deception, the person, and including the teacher in this case, is unable to see the plain truths "through" The Torah and The Testimony. Hence, the teacher is deceived unawares.

This method is the double-edged sword of deception, double deception, employed by our real enemy in the powers of the darkness.

For it feeds on the beliefs (the pictures of silver) of those who rejects the truths (apples of gold) on the false premise (in pictures of silver) and builds on another false premise: insinuates assumptive facts to the students.

Even though the false premise can be proven wrong Scientifically and Mathematically, Naturally, even Biblically. It is not considered false. It is considered truthful.

This is because of the "tacit agreement of one belonging to the collective awareness of the group" -- this is the "pictures or settings of silver" most of our beloved Sabbatarians are entrapped in, and may or may not be aware, that they cannot see the false premise as false.

An example false premise is:

The weekly cycle is perpetual and unbroken ever since creation.

There is no record of the 7-day week cycle ever having been broken. Calendar changes and reform have never interrupted the 7-day cycles. It very likely that the week cycles have run uninterrupted at least since the days of Moses (c. 1400 B.C.E.), possibly even longer.
http://www.webexhibits.org/calendars/week.html

NOTE: There are other false premises, that I have spotted such as the following:

The teachings about the "ceremonial law", the "moral law", the "sign of Jonah" -- "three days and three nights", ... these must all be taken into consideration in verifying with the Standard of the Scripture which is "the Torah and the Testimony" with "two or three witnesses shall it be established".

But we will focused on the perpetual unbroken cycle just to drive a point in this essay, and hopefully you will be able to spot other false premises also, for these are the "pictures or settings of silver" that framed the teachings it carries, and could kept one from advancing.

Scientifically and Mathematically proven wrong:

Naturally proven wrong

Can anyone determine which day it is just by looking at the sun? Without looking at a Calendar hanging on a wall.

Naturally, no one can.

the Julian calendar, actually implemented by Augustus, was replaced by the Gregorian calendar in 1582. The Council of Trent authorized Pope Gregory XIII to order that Thursday, October 4, 1582 be followed by Friday, October 15, 1582. Also, the International Date Line as we know it today was finally set at 180 degrees longitude during the International Meridian Conference in 1884.

There were 10 days taken from October 4 to October 15. Can 10 days fit within the 7 day week? No.

The "tacit agreement to the collective awareness of the group" kicks in which primed the minds of the targets with suggestion that Thursday, October 4 was followed by Friday, October 15 so the cycle is not interrupted at all.

What happened to the 10 days which would not fit on the 7 day week cycle? It was omitted, and no one questions about it.

What other information was omitted? October 15, should have been on a Monday. And Saturday should have been on the 20th instead of on the 16th.

If one cannot yet see the double standard in this case, one has become truly blinded by self-deception.

One last question to ponder: How many times has man made changes to the calendar? Many times already, not just this one. Go figure.

The 7 Day Continuous Cycle From Creation "Myth"
http://www.yhrim.com/The_7_Day_Continuous_Cycle_from_Creations_Myth.pdf

There are three fixed appointed times that makes The Almighty's Calendar, and the Lunar Sabbath, Tamper-Proof, Fail-safe, Fail-proof, that provide Corrective Measures or act as check and balance for such a time as ours today:

The Scriptures proves the Calendar of Yah and His weekly Sabbath, is pointed to by the moon.
http://www.creationcalendar.com/ProvingCalendar/Proof07.html

Fixed dates: Abib 10, Abib 14, and Abib 16

Abib 10 is the day to set aside the Passover Lamb, it is a work day.

There is a reason why Yahuwah gave this instruction, and that is to make His fixed appointed times fail-safe.

Yahushua rode on a donkey, people cut palm branches, there was buying and selling of Paschal lambs, making it a work day. Lk 19:35-45, Mt 21:2-15

Yahushua healed a man and was not accused of breaking the Sabbath. Mt 21:14

Therefore: Abib 10 can not fall on a Sabbath

Abib 10 floats on a Solar Calendar, and can fall on Saturday of the Roman Calendar -- the Solar Sabbath

The 14th day of Abib is always the preparation day for the feast of unleavened bread, all leavened must be taken out of the house, and most specially for the first day of unleavened bread it is a high day -- a festival that falls on a weekly Sabbath, they have to prepare their meals before hand. Mt 27:62, Mk 15:42, Lk 23:54-24:1, Jn 19:14,31,42-20:1

Abib 10, 14, and 16 are "commanded" work days. The barley could be harvested on the 16th only after the Wave Sheaf had been offered and accepted, Lev 23:9-14.

If the continuous 7-day cycle were truly observed from creation, and Saturday was indeed the Sabbath of creation, then these dates should not fall on a Saturday.

Every few years either the 10th, 14th or 16th of Abib will fall on a Saturday.

Abib 10 fell on a Saturday in 2003. The 14th fell on Saturday in 2004, 2008, and 2011. Abib 16 fell on a Saturday in 2002, 2006, 2009.

NOTE: These work dates are fixed. There is no legislation provided, in the Scriptures, to do these tasks a day early or a day late in case these days "just happen" to fall on the Sabbath.

Because these dates are the fail-proof dates of the Almighty's fixed appointed times.

These dates are the three witnesses, that testifies to us which is the true fixed appointed times of the Almighty.

These are not fixed on the Papal Calendar that hangs on a wall.

But fixed on Yah's Calendar by three witnesses in the skies by the sun (days), moon (dates, weeks and months), and the stars (years). And no man can tamper them.

This is not just about the Sabbaths, it is true about other teachings as well.

While the teacher CAN be innocent or unaware of being deceived. Oblivious of the warning signs that are there through "The Torah and The Testimony".

Because of the "tacit agreement of one belonging to a collective awareness of a group" one though with eyes and ears wide open is unable to see and unable to hear.

Could this be one of a working of delusions the Almighty sends to them who did not have the love of the truths?

And for this reason Elohim sends them a working of delusion, for them to believe the falsehood,1
Footnote: 1 Eze. 20:25, John 9:39, John 12:40, Acts 7:42, Rom. 1:24-28.
(2Th 2:11 The Scriptures 1998+)

in order that all should be judged who did not believe the truth, but have delighted in the unrighteousness.
(2Th 2:12 The Scriptures 1998+)

I do believe that those teachers' intent is to teach the truths, only many of them do not know the truths are already packaged "in pictures of silver" with untruths, hence, their teachings got mixed up with their assumptions, presuppositions and surmisings for lack of Scriptural grounding.

Which was actually borne out of the "pictures of silver" which happen to be untruths, automatically assumed as truths.

Which was fed on all other teachers before them, handed down from the wolves in sheep's clothing, centuries ago and was buried in time. And I believe most of them are not even aware of this. Some maybe are in the twilight of awareness, half-sleep.

This essay hopes to:

  • to point out the "pictures of silver" (the target frame of mind -- the imagination, that becomes automatically assumed truths, which later form the beliefs, which is actually almost always ignored, so it plays its role quietly, surreptitiously) that the "apples of gold" (the subject or the message) are framed with to convey the intent -- the whole message.

  • to point out to apply the Standard of the Scripture against (1)"the message" (the "apples of gold") and also against (2)"the frame of mind" (the "pictures of silver") with which the message is package to deliver its true intent.

  • to challenge the truth seekers' to do their due diligence in building their "stable data".

  • to point out to the truth seekers that facts, may not be the truths, therefore cannot be absolute truths -- "stable data", until cleared positively, personally, firsthand.

  • and to point out to the seekers that facts always come framed or packaged -- "the pictures of silver". And By overlooking this, as almost always is the case, is the culprit to one being deceived. Therefore, One must clear this first against stable data.

Please see: "How To Build Stable Data".

Please note my mention of "stable data". Yes. It is by default, that we, as human beings, when we have facts, or accepted truths that we have not cleared (verified, checked, and experienced personally, firsthand). And words and phrases that we do not intend to use, we use by default, because our own conviction--based on accepted truths though were not cleared--takes over.

Why?

Because somewhere in time we were asking the same questions to ourselves, and we got stucked to a wall with no answers in sight, then comes a fact quietly on a background (the "pictures of silver") that logically fits in.

So that we can moved on, and in absence of any other options, we automatically take what is given as truths, unconsciously, and unaware. This would have been okay until one becomes dogmatic about it, then untruth is buried and it becomes truth just like that.

An example of this will borne such reasons as:

  • "the Jews are doing it, why can't I",

  • "my pastor says so; it must be ok", and the like.

Or a much more deeply rooted conviction such as:

  • "I'm doing this in honor of __________",

  • "the Catholic Church admits the change of the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday"

  • "the Spanish Bible even have the word Sabado1 in it. (1. referring to both the word Sabbath and Saturday also, in English)"

Unchallenged, unverified facts. At this point, one could just as easily disregard it as untruths when it is challenge once again, IF one did not build a doctrine out of it.

BUT, when a doctrine ("pictures of silver") is built upon facts, it has a potential to make one dogmatic about it.

Usually, one would say "let's consider the facts". That phrase should now turn on warning signs that the facts thereon to be presented, may not be the truths. Keep that in mind.

Even though the teacher is trustworthy, if the facts presented cannot readily be verified, and relies on dogmas, presuppositions and surmising ("pictures of silver"). Then the teacher is also a victim of deception.

When one got a hold of "How To Build Stable Data", one can readily recognized dogmas, presuppositions and surmisings and the like ("pictures of silver"). Because one is anchored on Stable Data.

More often, a deception is made by inserting a "fact" which is automatically an "assumed truth". (Credits goes to our educational system worldwide.) Please see "How To Build Stable Data".

Remember "facts" does not always mean it is the truth. This is the very reason why I have started this blog to share "How To Build Stable Data".

An example of a fact is history, we can not consider it as an absolute truth, because we can never experienced it, firsthand.

We can take it as a probable truth until it is challenged by another record of history. And when it is challenged, it would still remain as a fact, but now its probability of truth drops significantly, but ONLY to the one that discovers it.

The one that discovers it, or hears about it, (e.g. this essay) is now on a crossroad and might have been a little bit shaken unconsciously.

And depending on ones resolved -- whether one is consciously seeking the truths and testing the teachings. Or one was just passing through and found the information which I believe, in this case, one is being called out. One, at this point in one's life has to make a decision.

And the "tacit agreement of one to the collective awareness of the group one belongs or one does not belong to" shall have an impact on one's choices, automatically and one is not even aware of this taking place and influencing one's choices.

If one creates a doctrine out of a fact, one becomes dogmatic about it, and unknowingly one becomes blinded to the truth of the matter when it does present itself.

For this reason history is notorious in deceiving many because time is its ally.

For this reason we should never build or create a doctrine out of quoted history. Even if it comes from the "Bible", much more the "New Testament", of facts that cannot be proven by the "Scriptures".

This is not to say we cannot use history. We can use historical sources only that agrees with "The Torah and The Testimony" and not the other way around. And these must come as the fourth or so witnesses only after the two to three "testimonies" from the Scriptures.

The Bible
the "tanakh"--"The Old Testament" and the "The New Testament"
The Scriptures
"The Old Testament" or the "tanakh"
NOTE: The Scriptures in todays congregation is also used to refer to The Whole Bible. But the people in the new testament times when they refer to the Scriptures, it means the tanakh--the old testament. And considering their example, we must also do likewise.

We can also learn from an example of our forefathers of how they created the first English Bible to The King James Bible Version (KJV). From what is known as the "textus receptus" or in English "received texts".

Why?

Because there were found many copies from many different sources.

This is far from perfect, but they had limited choices -- one written by the Vatican in Latin, known as the "Latin Vulgate", which many modern versions are now based on; and the "textus receptus" which the KJV was based from.

Our forefathers opted to use the "textus receptus" because they can cross reference from many different copies and from many different sources.. To arrive at the nearest truths.

Not to say they did not make any errors as we have found several already today. But, it is the better option for we are talking of thousands of different sources, that they can cross referenced with. Think about it and please make note of it.

And may I remind, the KJV still have some mistranslations and errors in it which one will encounter if one will be faithful in ones studies.

We use the KJV though, because it is the better translation, because it was faithfully crossed referenced from many different sources. Because the translators made it clear which words are added to it. (Just pointing out a couple important reasons.) This is vital in understanding why the body of Yahshua use the KJV.

When one begins the journey of seeking the truths found in its pages through "rightly dividing the word", against the Standard prescribed -- "to the Torah and to the Testimony" -- one will soon discover some mistranslations which have slipped through the careful and faithful scholars of the Bible who have carefully translated it.

And I take these newly understood words in their true meaning is unsealed for our time today. Now, if one is "dogmatic" about the KJV as the only error-free translation, one will missed the new lights its pages have released for our time today.

That is because the KJV was packaged ("pictures of silver") that the Almighty will preserved His Word.

That is true, but the "apples of gold" here is not the KJV Bible, but "the Torah and the Testimony", in its original manuscript, faithfully preserved by the faithful Jews.

One example is:

Torah
-is mistranslated as "Law" in most Bibles.
-means "Instructions" or "Teachings".
-technically, Torah, is the instructions spoken by Elohim to the children of Israel in Mt. Sinai; these are found in the five books of Moses -- Genesis to Deuteronomy.

If a modern translation comes in the same spirit as with the KJV, then we can consider it in the same spirit as well. There are several Bibles now, today, that come in the same spirit as the KJV. Which I used in this sight in quotes and tagged referenced with the KJV online, for the benefit to the reader.

We CAN NOT yet consider them as perfect but they have brought significant light to many passages.

Sadly though, some teachers in the body of Yahshua have created a doctrine out of the KJV translation as the absolute perfect translation and the rest should not be used at all in a study. Thereby effectively blocking some lights.

Moving on.

What is "Stable Data"?

"Stable Data" is "fact" which one has verified personally, firsthand, to be absolutely true. And anyone CAN readily do the same. And what is "Stable Data" to me or another comes to you, the reader, as "facts" which can become "Stable Data" to you only when you have faithfully verified the "facts" personally AND experienced them firsthand.

With history, can anyone personally, verify the fact, firsthand? No one. One reason, why history is one of the favorites in presenting facts. Anyone, unaware of building stable data can easily become dogmatic about it.

What does the Scriptures teach about how to established a fact, a matter to be considered?

Why even consider the Scriptures, and The Bible?

Please see:

Yahshua said I did not come to destroy the "teachings spoken by Elohim to the children of Israel in mount Sinai, written by Moses in Genesis to Deuteronomy" (law) but "to follow them personally to show as an example how it is done, and to teach it more fully." (fulfill).

“Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.1 I did not come to destroy but to complete.

Footnote: 1 The Law and the Prophets is a term used for the pre-Messianic Scriptures.

(Mat 5:17 The Scriptures 1998+)

And the Testimony says:

To the Torah and to the Testimony! If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because there is no light to them!
(Isa 8:20 HRB)

This is the third time I am coming to you. “By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.”1
Footnote: 1 Deut. 19:15, Mat 18:16, Heb 10:28 Deut 17:6.
(2Co 13:1 The Scriptures 1998+)


Yah Bless you!
