    • The Lord’s Day Sabbath Before I go to certain scriptures, I want to mention certain things. Rev 1:10 (10)  I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,   Here John was in the Spirit on a day, in his day called “the Lord’s day “.  And he just happened to be in the Spirit on that day. John does not mention this day for no reason, for nothing is mentioned for no reason in the bible. It is something he obviously took heed to. And notice that it is called “the” Lord’s day, a definite article. Now how do we associate this day with the first day of the week? Well I will get to scriptures that connect this, both from the old and the new. And in church history, which has been mentioned by Ezra, there were people like Justin Martyr that confirmed the Lord’s Day to be on the first day of the week, but he was not an isolated case, for you can fine many that did. People were observing the Lord’s Day, as the first day of the week, way before Constantine ever lived. So it is a false claim that people say that Constantine instituted the Lord’s Day, to be on Sunday. All Constantine did is merge paganism with Christianity and formed Roman Catholicism, which is pagan. He pretended to be a Christian, and at that time many let their guards down as a result, because he promised them a false religious freedom. I personally do not like to call the first day of the week Sunday, because it was named that way, in the Roman calendar, in honor of the sun god. I like calling the first day of the week the Lord’s Day. So with that said, let us go unto scriptures. We will cover scriptures here a bit at a time. Heb 4:1-4 (1)  Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. (2)  For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. (3)  For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. (4)  For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.   Now the word rest in these scriptures, in the Greek, is this: (Strong’s concordance, word rest) (G2663 κατάπαυσις katapausis kat-ap'-ow-sis From G2664; reposing down, that is, (by Hebraism) abode: - rest. Total KJV occurrences: 9)   Now the people in Moses time, especially the ones that did not cross over Jordan did not enter into the then rest of God because of unbelief, and in the same manner people do not enter into Christ’s spiritual rest under the new covenant, if they are in unbelief. Now was there a type of rest in Joshua’s time? Yes. Jos 23:1 (1)  And it came to pass a long time after that the LORD had given rest unto Israel from all their enemies round about, that Joshua waxed old and stricken in age.   God always went before them, and in times of faith, they conquered the enemy. Then it was a physical warfare, though there was a spiritual element to it as well, but under the new covenant Christ conquered spiritually, and we fight the good fight of faith, solely through spiritual warfare, as we put our faith in the finished work of Christ. In the time of Joshua, they had gotten rest from their enemies, as they put their faith in God, thus it would have allowed them to also more enjoy their Sabbaths as well, for it is in faith that you learn to properly obey God’s word, and not in unbelief. So now let us continue on in our verses. Heb 4:4-5 (4)  For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. (5)  And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.   Now it speaks here of God resting the seventh day from all his works and then it says in this place again, if they shall enter into his rest. What place? Well in like manner as God rested on the seventh day from all his works, we should rest from our works, but what works? Well yes there is a spiritual aspect to this scripture, to where we rest in the salvation of God, ceasing from all our works, which cannot save us, but is there a physical aspect to this as well? Because the works that God ceased from here, was his creation work, of creating the world or the six day creation, well then is there a physical aspect to this as well? I believe yes, and it would be for us to have a day of rest, to where we ceased from work week activity. Is the rest that we have in Christ a partial rest? Or is it a complete rest? Is it a body, soul and spirit rest? Or just a soulish and spiritual rest? We’ll let us go on.   Heb 4:6-7 (6)  Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: (7)  Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.   So  I will skip these verses and move unto our next scriptures. Heb 4:8-10 (8)  For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. (9)  There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. (10)  For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.   The word rest in verse 8, is a little different than the words rest, in the rest of Hebrews chapter 4, which is the word kat-ap-ow'-o, but also the word rest in verse 9 is also different, which I will deal with the word rest in verse 9. (Strong’s concordance, word rest) (G4520 σαββατισμός sabbatismos sab-bat-is-mos' From a derivative of G4521; a “sabbatism”, that is, (figuratively) the repose of Christianity (as a type of heaven): - rest. Total KJV occurrences: 1)   Now this word sabbatismos is a derivative of G4521.   What is this this word that corresponds to G4521?   (Strong’s concordance) (G4521 σάββατον sabbaton sab'-bat-on Of Hebrew origin [H7676]; the Sabbath (that is, Shabbath), or day of weekly repose from secular avocations (also the observance or institution itself); by extension a se'nnight, that is, the interval between two Sabbaths; likewise the plural in all the above applications: - sabbath (day), week. Total KJV occurrences: 68)   So now let us back to our verses. Heb 4:8-10 (8)  For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. (9)  There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. (10)  For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.   Now I am very aware of how people say that, verse 8, which is speaking of Jesus, that they say that it is really referring to Joshua, and I know that the words Jesus and Joshua are very alike, if not the same. But I truly believe that it is actually talking about Jesus Christ here. And at the beginning Of Hebrews chapter 4, it talked of the people in the wilderness who did not obtain the promise, and did not enter into the then rest, and then later it progresses in talking about David, and I believe it progresses again in talking about Jesus Christ. Now it says:” For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day”. Did Jesus speak of another day, wherein rest would be given? Absolutely yes. Now when Jesus was with the disciples they had a certain rest, for Christ was with them, but it was not a permanent rest, for Christ had to go from them and die on the cross, and be resurrected. So what day did Jesus speak of, wherein they would have rest? Joh 16:7 (7)  Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.   Well Jesus spoke of a day wherein the comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, would be sent unto them. What day was that?   Act 2:1-4 (1)  And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. (2)  And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. (3)  And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. (4)  And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.   Now we all know that the day of Pentecost was on the first day of the week, but is there a verse that shows that there was a certain type of rest on this day? Yes there is.   Isa 28:11-12 (11)  For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. (12)  To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.   Now this happened on the day of Pentecost, and it mentions this other tongue, which is gotten through the baptism of the Holy Ghost, as a rest. It is a rest and a refreshing. I believe that on the day of Pentecost that is when the Holy Ghost was sent, to make men born again and to also fill them with the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Our rest is in Christ, and there is also rest gotten in the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Of course our rest is never apart from Christ and his finished work, whether it is original salvation or the baptism of the Holy Ghost. So now we go back to our verses. Heb 4:8-10 (8)  For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. (9)  There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. (10)  For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Jesus did speak of another day wherein rest would be provided, and then verse 9 mentions that there remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.   Therefore means, because of, and it is because of this other day that Jesus mentioned that there remaineth a rest to the people of God. In order for something to remain, there must have been something in the past that was already, in order for something to remain. And in the past there was the rest from the enemies that they had through Joshua, and the seventh day of the week Sabbath rest. They had other Sabbaths mind you, but the main rest was the Sabbath rest. Well under the new covenant, we have rest in Christ Jesus, which he is our salvation, and because of this other day, which is the first day of the week, I believe that we also have a new Sabbath rest. We have a complete sabbatism, that we enter into, which is a body, soul and spirit rest, which includes a day of rest or a sabbaton. It is complete, and not a partial rest. Now I know that some will say that this verse only includes a spiritual rest, but is that true? Well is there an Old Testament scripture that shows that there remaineth a Sabbath under the new covenant? Absolutely yes. Infact there is an old testament verse that would go along with the verse that says:”there remaineth a rest to the people of God” , but also it seems that there is an old testament verse that would go along with Revelation 1:10 , which talks about the Lord’s day. And in my next study I will show these verses and what has been done away with under the new, and show forth stuff, that concerns the fourth commandment. And it will bring things together. Love ya in the Lord.
    • Ancient papyrus offers first non-biblical mention of Jerusalem
      Michele Chabin, Religion News Service 5:19 p.m. EDT October 26, 2016

      JERUSALEM — Israeli archaeologists have unveiled the earliest known non-biblical, Hebrew-language reference to Jerusalem, dating back to the time of the First Temple in the seventh century B.C.
    • Hi n2thelight, Israel is Israel destined for an earthly purpose & the Body of Christ is well...the Body of Christ, destined for a heavenly purpose. To know the difference brings God`s word & eschatology into clearer focus. We need to realise that God is setting more than just this earth in order. The other realms He made have also to be restored. Thus God is calling out different groups for different callings in His great kingdom.   Marilyn.

      Psalm 40 (KJV)
      40 I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
      2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
      3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.
      4 Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
      5 Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
      6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
      7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
      8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
      9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O Lord, thou knowest.
      10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
      11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Lord: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
      12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.
      13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me: O Lord, make haste to help me.
      14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
      15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
      16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The Lord be magnified.
      17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

      Hi, I'm back. I Read Ezra's answer to someone in the RCC. Ezra s right on point regarding baptism. This is going to be very interesting conversing with rccs on biblical topics. I left the RCC, was baptized in the Jordan River on my first 2011 trip to Israel after Mike died....and my dad says... Why? Once wasnt  good enough for ya? I laughed, dad, you could have lied about my infant baptism, i was to young and don't remember and being baptized as an adult is on outward sign to show others I'm a follower and believer in Christ. My dad's 86, in poor health and I've given him the gospel message many different ways and times, he's still lost but I still pray! He has until his last breathe to repent and trust Jesus, amen! I know heavy topic, no reply needed.😃
