Why Do We Keep The Wrong Sabbaths?

The Sabbaths of the Creator, the Most High, are important to all believers who wished to follow and obey Him at His Word.

Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a "sign"H226 between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am YHWH that doth "sanctify"H6942 you.
-- (Exo 31:13 RNKJV)

H226
אות
'ôth
oth
Probably from H225 (in the sense of appearing); a signal (literally or figuratively), as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.: - mark, miracle, (en-) sign, token.
-- (Strong's - H226)

H6942
קדשׁ
qâdash
kaw-dash'
A primitive root; to be (causatively make, pronounce or observe as) clean (ceremonially or morally): - appoint, bid, consecrate, dedicate, defile, hallow, (be, keep) holy (-er, place), keep, prepare, proclaim, purify, sanctify (-ied one, self), X wholly.
-- (Strong's - H6942)

bold emphasis mine

“And you, speak to the children of Yisra’?l, saying, ‘My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all means, for it is a sign1 between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, יהוה, am setting you apart.

Footnote: 1The only sign of יהוה setting us apart, the only sign of the everlasting covenant, is His Sabbaths, one of them being the seventh day Sabbath. This is repeated in Ezek. 20:12 & 20.
-- (Exo 31:13 The Scriptures 1998+)

The prophet Isaiah wrote about our adversary:

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of El: I will sit also upon the mount of the "congregation"H4150, in the sides of the north:
(Isa 14:13 RNKJV)

מועדה מעד מועד
mô‛êd mô‛êd mô‛âdâh
mo-ade', mo-ade', mo-aw-daw'
From H3259; properly an appointment, that is, a fixed time or season; specifically a festival; conventionally a year; by implication, an assembly (as convened for a definite purpose); technically the congregation; by extension, the place of meeting; also a signal (as appointed beforehand): - appointed (sign, time), (place of, solemn) assembly, congregation, (set, solemn) feast, (appointed, due) season, solemn (-ity), synagogue, (set) time (appointed).
Strong's - H4150

Mount in prophetic terms means a ruling kingdom. (Dan 2:35 "...and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth....")

Isaiah talks about a ruling kingdom that "will exalt the throne of [Lucifer -- the king of Babylon (Isa 14:4)] above the stars of El: (The Almighty)" and "will sit also upon the mount (authority) of 'appointments or festivals'H4150".

The stars in the heavens tells us when is spring, spring is when the Almighty's year starts. And His people also must start their year in the spring, according to the Torah.

Today the whole world starts the year at the dead of winter. And ALL the "appointed times"H4150 of Yah have already been replaced with Easter, Halloween, Christmas and the like (to name just a few).

Frankly, our world today is already being ruled by the spirit of this entity that Isaiah talks about. We are just kept under an illusion of freedom. But no matter what we choose it is to worship the adversary, the beast and the dragon that the book of Revelation talks about.

Except for those few who have come out of all known religions, christian churches and denominations AND Have Found the true instructions of the Almighty and are keeping and guarding them.

If we keep the "appointments"H4150 of Yah, the Almighty, but unknowingly outside of His "fixed time"H4150 our worship had been usurped by the adversary, the beast, and are in vain.

Do not think for a second this is not important, that the Almighty would understand. Read again the first verse in this essay, scroll back up and read it again. Sabbaths are His signs. Sabbaths are His fixed appointments, so are His festivals. Are we keeping them in His fixed times? Are we guarding them?

Chances are we are keeping the adversary's "fixed times and festivals"H4150 on his solar calendar -- Sunday, Friday, Saturday, Easter, Halloween, Christmas and the like.

Unless, one holds on, and keep and guard the Torah -- "instructions of Yah, the Alimighty" (bless His Name), ones worship could be directed to this beast and dragon and its image, and would be in vain.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
(Rev 13:15 RNKJV)

And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he led astray those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image. The two were thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulphur.
(Rev 19:20 The Scriptures 1998+)

Please see: The Mark Of The Beast

The Word of Yah, the Almighty, the Mighty One, is also called the Torah which actually means instructions or teachings. Bless His name.

Torah is mistranslated as "Law" in most Bibles and also mistranslated as "The Ten Commandments" by most teachers who cherry-picked what-is-and-what-is-not-to-be-followed.

By which, with a deeper study "rightly dividing the word"(2Ti 2:15) the word (Torah), one will find sooner that this is a very subtle and clever moved indeed by the powers of the darkness, to mislead the very people of today to dismissed a number of instructions or teachings that gives life and meaning and blessing. Please pause and think about it for a sec.

Please get me right, I do not mean to disrespect the faithful scholars who faithfully translated the available manuscripts at their disposals at their time. And gave us the trusted KJV.

And no disrespect to all other teachers out there who dogmatically defend their position about their teachings.

For "everything works together for good" (Rom 8:28); and Daniel was also told the "words are sealed until the time of the end", and we have already entered the "time of the end".

And we know that all matters work together for good to those who love Elohim, to those who are called according to His purpose.
(Rom 8:28 The Scriptures 1998+)

And He said, Go, Daniel! For the words are closed up and sealed until the end time.
(Dan 12:9 HRB)

Certainly, I believed, that the matters of restoration of all true teachings (the torah of the Almighty given to Moses and to Yahushua) are meant to be included in this context.

Keep this in mind as well, that Most Teachers of the Bible (if not all), are faithful, sincere, honest, individuals, according to the light and understanding they have, they teach, although unaware of any mistranslations from Hebrew to English or whatever language they use to teach. And unless they stopped "rightly dividing the word" (2Ti 2:15), they will not see anymore light coming through.

Study to shew thyself approved unto YHWH, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
(2Ti 2:15 RNKJV)

But the Mighty One will wink (Acts 17:30) at our ignorance. Until we are nudged -- when we find a new teaching, we are nudged. When we are nudged, we are being called out. Then we must take responsibility to verify it, to check the spirit that nudged us, whether it is indeed taught by Moses (Heb 10:28) and Yahushua (Deut 18:15,18,19).

And the times of this ignorance YHWH winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
(Acts 17:30 RNKJV)

Anyone who has disregarded the Torah of Mosheh dies without compassion on the witness of two or three witnesses.
(Heb 10:28 The Scriptures 1998+)

“יהוה your Elohim shall raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brothers. Listen to Him,
(Deu 18:15 The Scriptures 1998+)

‘I shall raise up for them a Prophet like you out of the midst of their brothers. And I shall put My Words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him.
(Deu 18:18 The Scriptures 1998+)

‘And it shall be, the man who does not listen to My Words which He speaks in My Name, I require it of him.
(Deu 18:19 The Scriptures 1998+)

Please see: The Biblical Principles Of Verification

So bear in mind that when we faithfully, rightly divide a word of study in the Scripture, we shall find some words mistranslated. And these words we shall find are for our times today -- the last days. To correct and restore all the truths.

And most of these teachers are unaware that they are guarding the false doctrines mixed into the truths. And in turn, misled a great many peoples. And that my friend, include the "appointed times" of the Most High. And the true Sabbath is one of them.

And if you are a Sabbath keeper, chances are you may be keeping the wrong Sabbath (appointed time), hence you missed the sign the Most High will recognize.

And if you are not a Sabbath Keeper, you might want to find out why it is absolutely important to you and to the Almighty. And better do it quickly while there is still time.

I was a victim of these deceptions as well until I decided to "rightly divide" studiously, etymologically, personally, to find out if what they are teaching is indeed the Word of Yah -- the Torah.

Please see: Learning How To Learn

No single person today is immune from deception, (Rev 12:9) that includes myself. Because the adversary had already laid the ground work long before this last generation was born. And they used time as its ally. With every generation some truths are buried with time.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
(Rev 12:9 RNKJV)

Please see: How To Build Stable Data

But the Ruach Ha'Qodesh is still working with all of us who teaches, though what we teach might have mixed with untruths unaware.

Because if we keep the command of Yahshua to "love one another" (John 13:34,35) we would not be dogmatic about what we teach if another teaching from another teacher points out that what we keep and teach is wrong, though it comes from some teachers who we might found some untruths in their teachings.

This is why building stable data is very, very important, to wade through the tentacles, the mesh, the net of deceptions. And the Bible must become a stable data, first. Because one can only build stable data ON stable data.

Dogmas and Stable Data are two different things and are worlds apart. One might wanna mixed up the two but it cannot be done -- such as beliefs and dogmas, conclusions, judgements, and decisions. The whole world is trapped in these.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does them, shall be like a wise man who built his house on the rock,
-- (Mat 7:24 The Scriptures 1998+)

and the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
-- (Mat 7:25 The Scriptures 1998+)

“And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not do them,1 shall be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand,
Footnote: 1John 3:36.
-- (Mat 7:26 The Scriptures 1998+)

and the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell, and great was its fall.”
-- (Mat 7:27 The Scriptures 1998+)

For the Bible to become Stable Data, one must first choose to obey some "instructions or teachings that comes with a promise" and live by it, in faith.

When one experiences the power of Yah working in those "instructions or teachings", personally, firsthand, then those "instructions or teachings becomes "Stable Data". And one can then build on another and repeat the same process.

Until one is fully aware that the Bible is indeed true, because one has experienced its testimony, personally, firsthand. Without this one can still be carried away; even if one proclaims at the top of one's voice one's belief of the Bible if it falls short of being Stable Data; one is still grounded on the sand.

And we are running out of time, our adversary is busy working day and night getting the whole world drank with his wine -- sex and violence and the cares of life in every turn and corner. Even in the very churches who proclaim the messages of truths.

While at the same time teaching from the Bible sounding like truths, but are not the instructions of the Almighty given to Moses and given to Yahushua; the Torah. You do not want to be caught in the darkness, under the adversary's spell, and be killed (losing eternal life).

The day of trial is approaching, when it comes and you have disregarded and dismissed the teachings that came your way. Even the Almighty will deliver to you strong delusions so that you will not be saved. (2Th 2:11)

If you ever THINK that a certain teaching that showed up in your radar is false, such as this one, without you verifying it, personally, firsthand. Your life my friend is in danger. You have been warned!

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+)

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+)

for it is Elohim who is working in you both to desire and to work for His good pleasure.
(Php 2:13 The Scriptures 1998+)

This is also why Yahshua said, time will be shortened, because if not, no one will be saved. (Mat 24:22, Mar 13:20)

Why?

Because all the truths we can still find today will be buried with the last generations (the babyboomers -- 1944/5 to 1964/5) as well. The youngest of this last generation was born in 1964/1965, most of them are now in their late forties.

They are called babyboomers because they set the trends. They set the trends because they are more than 1 billion babies born after the war And they have become wealthy and they have the money to command.

Successful businesses in history had become successful by predicting what these generations want, and simply give them what they want. Imagine just a billion people buying your product. Imagine how many babies want diapers.

While at the same time, our adversary is busy dumbing down the population, wiping out true freedom, stealing the wealth, eradicating the middle-class and giving us false freedom.

Today only 25% of the world experiences true freedom. In the near future, the whole world will just be like any other third world country, having false freedom. They want it that way because "beggars can't be choosers".

Just observe the coming generations, the x and y, it is not hard to see that when the babyboomers (the last generations) are gone, the true teachings of the Bible shall become a thing of the ancient past never to be reckoned with correctly.

And that is just one area of the life of the next generations. Economically and financially we can already predict what kind of hardships they are going to have to go through. Today we see many peoples killing themselves because they lost all hopes of living. These are the results of not following the "instructions or teachings" of the Most High.

Our educational systems, the media and most publications have all been muddled already. Truths are being erased from history accounts, encyclopedias, dictionaries and whatever educational references that would lend to the truths are already been doctored.

I discovered firsthand how the dictionaries were used to influence a doctrine. Please see: The Evolution Of The "GodHead".

And considering the newer versions of our Bibles today have departed from the tradition the KJV was translated. Though the KJV is far from perfect, the "textus receptus" must still be considered with new archaeological finds with the same spirit as when the KJV was translated.

Because the Sabbaths is the sign our Creator created for us, that we shall know He purifies us. How can we be purified if we missed the appointed time of the Sabbath, by keeping the wrong day? And by missing to keep a few other instructions as well? How can we keep the true and valid instructions if our understanding of doctrines are not what were originally meant?

The Torah is His instructions or teachings. He spoke the Torah to Moses. And Yah told the children of Israel that He would send a prophet to them like Moses. That He would put His Words to His mouth.

‘I shall raise up for them a Prophet like you out of the midst of their brothers. And I shall put My Words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him.
-- (Deu 18:18 The Scriptures 1998+)

‘And it shall be, the man who does not listen to My Words which He speaks in My Name, I require it of him.
-- (Deu 18:19 The Scriptures 1998+)

And since then no prophet has arisen in Yisra’?l like Mosheh, whom יהוה knew face to face,
-- (Deu 34:10 The Scriptures 1998+)

Concerning Yahshua:

“I have come in My Father’s Name and you do not receive Me, if another comes in his own name, him you would receive.1
- Footnote: 1“Another,” another one, was indeed a prophecy by יהושע of another one, probably the same one we read of in 2 Thess. 2:4. See Anti-Messiah in Explanatory Notes.
-- (Joh 5:43 The Scriptures 1998+)

“How are you able to believe, when you are receiving esteem from one another, and the esteem that is from the only Elohim you do not seek?
-- (Joh 5:44 The Scriptures 1998+)

“Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Mosheh, in whom you have set your expectation.
-- (Joh 5:45 The Scriptures 1998+)

“For if you believed Mosheh, you would have believed Me, since he wrote about Me.
-- (Joh 5:46 The Scriptures 1998+)

“But if you do not believe his writings,1 how shall you believe My words?”
- Footnote: 1 Lk. 9:33, Lk. 16:31, Mal. 4:4-5.
-- (Joh 5:47 The Scriptures 1998+)

Now, may I remind that every single time we hear a teacher of the Bible mentions "Law", from the Hebrew word "Torah", the correct translation is "instructions" or "teaching" specifically, the instructions given by the Almighty, the Most High, the Mighty One of Yisrael to Moshe (Moses). This is also what is meant by the phrase "The Word" with a capital "W".

And notice that by using the wrong translated word "Law" or "Ten Commandments", these teachers, usually, only points to the ten commandments by the Most High written in stone.

The rest of the instructions are subtly dismissed. But notice, the Hebrew mindset, when they used the word "Law" today, they still mean "all" the instructions of the Most High, including the ten commandments (or the "ten words" -- the correct translation from Hebrew) written in stone. Pause and think about it.

But what about the x and y generations of the Jews? When all the babyboomers are gone, including the Jews, of course. Considering today, the Jews are no longer keeping the correct weekly Sabbath day.

Oh! By the way, the Jews we know today are NOT the real Jews. Are they conspiring against us by keeping the wrong Sabbath so we could use them as proof of our disobedience? Pause and think about it.

The real Jews, the remnant of the Most High are yet hidden. Although some of them have come to Israel already. And most of the Israelites (including the Jews) do not even know who they really are. Who knows you and I might even have more Israelite blood in our veins than the Jews we know today. Now, let's get back.

For according to their record, the weekly Sabbath day is still appointed to by the new moon. Will the truth still survive? Yahshua said, no one will be save if time is not shortened.

"1. Sabbath and New Moon (Rosh Hodesh) both periodically recurring in the course of the year. The New Moon is still, and the Sabbath originally was, dependent upon the lunar cycle.

-- The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. 5, Edited by Isaac Landman, The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, Inc. New York, 1941, article "Holidays," p.410

Please note: This record in a few short years will be gone too, along with the keeper of this, the babyboomers.

The Most High "spoke" the "Torah", instructions to Moses, and spoke and gave the "ten words" written in stone to the children of Israel. These are found in the first five books of Moses. And according to Jewish tradition, these are placed in the "Ark of the Covenant". Hence the first five books of Moses is called the "Torah" -- the Word of the Most High, or simply the Word in English..

Technically, the whole Bible is not the Word, only the Torah is the Word, although we refer to the whole Bible as the Word because it is inspired by the Ruach HaQodesh from the Most High. The Torah is the Word, and the rest of the Bible are the testimony to the Word, that testifies to the Torah -- the Word. Pause and think about it.

But we are at the Most High's timeline of restoration of all truths before the end of all things.

So the three angels' (messengers') messages (Rev 14:6-10) are sounding off right now to all the world. And if their message reaches us. We must not hastily judge it as crap, or dismiss it immediately without examining it, but receive it and apply the "biblical principles of verification whether it is a true teachings, instructions, right-ruling, statutes, and command written by Moses, and taught fully by Yahushua or whether it is just a presupposition, dogma, surmising, vain reasoning and philosophies of men twisting The Word of the Almighty.

And I saw another messenger flying in mid-heaven, holding the everlasting Good News to announce to those dwelling on the earth, even to every nation and tribe and tongue and people,
(Rev 14:6 The Scriptures 1998+)

saying with a loud voice, “Fear Elohim and give esteem to Him, because the hour of His judgment has come. And worship Him who made the heaven and the earth, and sea, and fountains of water.”
(Rev 14:7 The Scriptures 1998+)

And another messenger followed, saying, “Bab?el is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her whoring.”
(Rev 14:8 The Scriptures 1998+)

And a third messenger followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark upon his forehead or upon his hand,
(Rev 14:9 The Scriptures 1998+)

he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of Elohim, which is poured out undiluted into the cup of His wrath. And he shall be tortured with fire and sulphur before the set-apart messengers and before the Lamb.
(Rev 14:10 The Scriptures 1998+)

The next post -- The True Sabbaths Of The Scriptures To Keep -- will present the "instructions or teachings" of the true Sabbath/s, from the Scriptures that we are commanded to keep. Please, you need to verify these with Your Scriptures, and apply the Biblical Principles of Verification. Shalom

Please! Read this First before going on And then apply it as you go on: The Biblical Principles of Verification

Might we missed the appointed times of the Most High? Answer is most certainly, yes, if we misunderstood the "instructions".

So, if a teaching comes into your radar screen, it means, you are being called out. You are given the opportunity to verify what came to your radar screen, so you will have firsthand knowledge whether it is from the enemy or from the Almighty given to Moses for the whole world, and taught fully by Yahushua. (Mat 5:17,18)

If you ask a pastor or teacher and they say dismiss it, instead of teaching you how to verify with the scripture, you better not listen to them. You better listen to the still small voice prompting you to Check and Verify the Information, personally, firsthand. Or risk, being one of those who call "master, master" but the master will not recognize you. For He calls you NOW and you did not give an ear.

“But why do you call Me ‘Master, Master,’ and do not do what I say?1
Footnote: 1 see Lk6:47-49, Mt. 7:24-28, Lk. 8:21, John 3:36, Jas. 2:17-24.
(Luk 6:46 The Scriptures 1998+)

Shalom!

Post note: After reading all these (above links to articles), you might be tempted to think the Almighty is not in control. My friend, He is in control. The "four craftsmen" below are they that rules the world today. They are sufficiently hidden. Revelation 13:15 identifies them as "the spirit to the image of the beast". They are not seen, as spirit cannot be seen, as ruling the world, but we can feel their presence, if we try to look closer, we will perceive them.

And יהוה showed me four craftsmen.
(Zec 1:20 The Scriptures 1998+)

And I said, “What are these coming to do?” And he spoke saying, “These are the horns that scattered Yehuḏah, so that no one lifted up his head. But these come to trouble them, to throw down the horns of the gentiles that lifted up their horn against the land of Yehuḏah to scatter it.”
(Zec 1:21 The Scriptures 1998+)

Remember the Jews in the land of Judah (Israel today) are not the real Jews. The Jews are scattered among the gentiles (the nations of the world today). But they are there for Yah's purposes, to defend the land of Judah.

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+)

Here is hope:

Because יהוה has compassion on Yaʽaqob, and shall again choose Yisra’ĕl1, and give them rest in their own land. And the strangers shall join them, and they shall cling to the house of Yaʽaqoḇ2.
Footnotes: 1 See Isa 45:17, Jer. 30:11, Jer. 46:28, Dan. 2:44, Amos 9:8, Zech. 1:16-17, Zech. 2:10-12, Joel 3:16. 2 See Isa 56:6-8 & 60:3, Amos 9:12, Zech. 2:11, Zech. 8:23, Rom. 11:17-24, Rev. 21:24.
(Isa 14:1 The Scriptures 1998+)

Selected from footnotes:

“Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to יהוה, to serve Him, and to love the Name of יהוה, to be His servants, all who guard the Sabbath, and not profane it, and hold fast to My covenant –
(Isa 56:6 The Scriptures 1998+)

them I shall bring to My set-apart mountain, and let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their slaughterings are accepted on My altar, for My house is called a house of prayer for all the peoples.”
(Isa 56:7 The Scriptures 1998+)

The Master יהוה, who gathers the outcasts of Yisra’ĕl, declares, “I gather still others to him besides those who are gathered to him.”
(Isa 56:8 The Scriptures 1998+)
