The Fourth Commandment – Part 1 – Who Changed It?

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Sabbath

Our Father is a loving Father, and it is His desire to bless us. He is good, and His Word is good. He created the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested. He blessed this day and sanctified it. He made the seventh day; a day set apart from the other, a day of rest and refreshment.

He blessed us by giving us this gift of the Sabbath, a day to spend in His presence, a day to renew our strength physically and spiritually. The sad thing is, His gift was exchanged for another. His instructions were exchanged for man’s. He never commanded the first day of the week as a rest day! There is not a single reference in Scripture to support this change.

I want to urge you to consider this. The Sabbath is not just any day of the week; it is a very special day, a day set apart by the Creator of heaven and earth Himself. Man does not have the authority to change this, and yet he has. However, you are not a follower of man; you would not be studying this topic, if you were. He wants you to know the truth; His truth. Do not delay in learning this, it is very important.

What is Righteousness? Let us count the ways

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Training in righteousness

We are counting the Omer, a very significant time of the year. We just relived the exodus out of Egypt, when we celebrated Pesach and the Feast of Unleavened bread. We remembered the death and resurrection of our Saviour Y’shua, the Messiah with the feast of First Fruit! This is a time of spiritual preparation for the next feast, Shavuot. It is a new season, a fresh beginning. Let us consider what righteousness is and purpose ourselves to live in righteous obedience to His Word.

That said, do we know what righteousness is? Do we know how to live righteously?

How to identify strange doctrine?

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in False teachings

We are living in the age of confusion! There is so much information available, an ocean of knowledge, you can easily drown in. Most everyone has easy access to the internet and books. This abundance of knowledge sometimes makes it difficult to discern truth from error. We also find people returning to their Hebrew roots. Here again we find an abundance of information, teachings and teachers. The question is: how do you know the truth from error? Error will lead to deception and losing the true way. What does the Scripture say about strange doctrine and how to identify it?

You never know you’ve been asleep till you wake up

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Sabbatical Year

We believe that we are living in a time of restoration. Many things are being revealed to us and restored to us. The seventh day Sabbath has been restored to us. The Biblical feasts have been restored to us. More and more, we are being taught to keep Abba YHVH’s commandments. We, being in the Diaspora cannot keep any of the commandments perfectly. We keep Sabbath, but we can’t do the commanded offers; we celebrate the feasts and there also we lack. We believe that we should be observing all the Sabbaths: the weekly, the annual and the seventh year Sabbath as well. This will, likewise, be difficult to keep in the Diaspora, but nonetheless, not impossible. There is more to the Sabbatical year than just the commandments regarding the land. We also have to release every debt. It remains part of YHVH’s divine reckoning of time. We won’t be able to do it perfectly. It is about keeping YHVH’s way to the best of our ability and with a willing heart.
