We have already discussed the lunar calendar and it’s origin in a number of articles. However, we have not yet addressed the topic of the solar calendar – also known as the Enoch calendar. Some groups are promoting the Enoch calendar as the “original” calendar of YHVH. This teaching has a lot of impact on our beliefs. We need to investigate this teaching to understand all the ripple effects that it causes. Let us do a detailed study of the Enoch calendar and the calendar of the Essenes. The more we know about this calendar the better we can decide how Scriptural this really is.
Many people are, mainly because of the influence of anti-missionaries, convinced that the Apostolic writings are not inspired Scripture. In other words, they do not believe it is the Word of YHVH.
Think about this logically. What does it imply when you make the statement that the New Testament or Apostolic writings are not inspired? It basically invalidates this part of the Bible and reduces it to the level of commentary, stripping it of all authority. This is a problem because if the Apostolic writings are not inspired writings, why do we need it or why do we even read it?
We, however, believe that the Apostolic Writings is the inspired Word of YHVH and will show you why.
In this study, we will investigate what we know, in our time, as an assembly and how this compares with what was done in Biblical times. We shall also study how and when this originated. We shall look at the purpose of the tabernacle and the Temple and if this was indeed the forerunners of what we know today as church or synagogue. We shall also investigate how the words “ekklesia” and “synagogue” were translated and why. Prepare to be challenged…
In the previous post, we have seen how poor scholarship can lead to deceptions and misconceptions. In this post, we shall look at the name of YHVH and Y’shua. The purpose is not to create contention, on the contrary; it is to bring peace. We want to show you, firstly, that we are living in a time of restoration, and that we are to embrace that. However, secondly, that we are in this to be loving and patient toward one another for we do not have all truth revealed to us yet.
