JEHOVAH/YAHWEH GOD’S SABBATH DAY

The Forgotten 4th Commandment

♥ ♥ ♥

JESUS/YAHSHUA is “Lord of the Sabbath.”

(Matthew 12:8)

♥ ♥ ♥

“Keeping the sabbath day to hold it sacred, just as Jehovah your

God commanded you, you are to render service and you must

do all your work six days. But the seventh day is a sabbath to

Jehovah your God. You must not do any work, you nor your

son nor your daughter nor your slave man nor your slave girl

nor your bull nor your ass nor any domestic animal of yours

nor your alien resident who is inside your gates, in order that

your slave man and your slave girl may rest the same as you.”

(Deuteronomy : 5:12-14)

New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures

As important as any of our works or commitments are, even for the Lord,

resting on Sabbath takes precedence.

Even the work of God was not permitted to be elevated above the command

to rest on the Sabbath.

It is to be observed as a perpetual covenant, throughout time and generations.

Why is keeping Sabbath so important?  

Because it’s a special sign between God and His people.  

“Between me and the sons of Israel it is a sign to time indefinite,

because in six days Jehovah made the heavens and the earth

and on the seventh day he rested and proceeded to refresh himself.”

(Exodus 31:17)



BUSY: Being Under Satan’s Yoke?


The Devil’s Convention ….


Satan called a worldwide convention of demons.

In his opening address he said, “We can’t keep Christians from going to church.”

“We can’t keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth.”

“We can’t even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their savior.”

“Once they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them is broken.”

“So let them go to their churches; let them have their covered dish dinners,

BUT steal their time, so they don’t have time to develop a relationship with

Almighty God Jehovah and Jesus Christ, His Son.”


“This is what I want you to do,” said the devil: “Distract them from gaining

hold of their Savior and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!

” “How shall we do this?” his demons shouted. “Keep them busy in the non-essentials

of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds,” he answered.

“Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow.”

“Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work

6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty lifestyles.”

“Keep them from spending time with their children.”

“As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the

pressures of work!” “Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear

that still, small voice.”

“Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive.”

“To keep the TV, VCR, DVD, CDs and their PCs, going constantly in their

home and see to it that every store and restaurant in the world plays

non-biblical music constantly.”

“This will jam their minds and break that union with Christ.”

“Fill the coffee tables with magazines and newspapers.”

“Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day.”

“Invade their driving moments with billboards.”

“Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogs, sweepstakes,

and every kind of newsletter and promotional offering free products,

services and false hopes.”

“Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their husbands

will believe that outward beauty is what’s important, and they’ll become

dissatisfied with their wives.”

“Keep the wives too tired to love their husbands at night.”

” Give them headaches too! “If they don’t give their husbands the love they

need, they will begin to look elsewhere; thus committing adultery!”

“That will fragment their families quickly!”

“Even in their recreation, let them be excessive.”

“Have them return from their recreation exhausted.”

“Keep them too busy to go out in nature and reflect on God’s creation.

Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts, and movies instead.

“Keep them busy, busy, busy!”

“And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk

so that they leave with troubled consciences.”

“Crowd their lives with so many good earthly causes they have no time to seek

power from Jehovah God and His Son, Jesus Christ.”

“Let them be involved in soul-winning, but crowd their lives with so many causes

that they have no time to seek power from God and Christ. Soon they will be

working in their own strength, sacrificing their health and family for the good

of the cause.”

“It will work!” “It will work!”

It was quite a devilish clever plan!

The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere

to get busier and more rushed, going here and there and everywhere.

Having little time for their God or their families.

Having no time to tell others about the power of Jesus to change lives.

I guess the question is, has the devil been successful in his schemes?

You be the judge!!!!!

 

Does “BUSY” mean: Being Under Satan’s Yoke?


Satan’s goal is to take our minds away from Jehovah God and Jesus Christ

and steer us towards the cares of the world. God wants us to enjoy life,

but He must be our first priority in our lives.If we are too busy for the

One True God Jehovah and His Son, Jesus Christ, then we are too

busy being earthly busy. The Day of Wrath of Jehovah and Jesus Christ

Second Coming is upon the whole world; Wake Up and Pray Up and

not be lead away by Satan’s schemes and temptations or else we’ll have

to face the consequences with regrets and be written out of the

Book of LIFE and God’s Kingdom.


The HOUR is at HAND.


The Hour is at Hand



 

“Papa, look!” Someone had just given a six-year-old a string

of plastic pearls, and she was bubbling over

with excitement as she ran to show them to her father.

“These are beautiful,” her father said.

For a long, thoughtful moment he turned themover in his hand and

watched them shine in the light from the lamp next to his easy chair.

Then he asked, “Will you do something for me?

Will you give me these beads in exchange for

something I will give you tomorrow?”

“Have I ever asked you to do anything that wasn’t for your good?”

“What’s that?” asked the little girl.

“You’ll see tomorrow,” her father replied.

The little girl’s eyes betrayed her inward struggle.

“It’s up to you,” the father said. “You don’t have to make the trade just

because I am asking you to, but have I ever asked you

to do anything that wasn’t for your good?

Can you trust that I know best?”

It wasn’t easy, but the little girl handed the beads to her father.

He slipped them into his pocket, and gave her a big hug that said,

“I’m proud of you.”

The next day, the father gave the little girl a gift that was far

more beautiful and valuable

—a delicate gold chain with a genuine pearl pendant.

The little girl forgot all about the string of plastic pearls.

“I did this to teach you to trust the Father in Heaven,”

her father explained.

“Many times in your life,

He will ask you to give up something you want,

or to avoid something that to you looks good, and often

you won’t understand why.

But if you trust your heavenly Father as you have trusted me,

you will find that He always knows best.

When He asks you to give up some things,

it’s because He wants to give you much better things.”

In one of the parables that Jesus told,

He likened the Kingdom of Heaven to a pearl so rare,

so beautiful, and so costly that one man sold everything

he owned in order to buy that one pearl

(Matthew 13:45-46).

We can have a little bit of Heaven here and now,

but the gifts and treasures of the spirit come at a price.

To experience and enjoy the things of eternal value,

we have to make room for them;

we have to be willing to give up some of our “trinkets,”

the trivialities and fleeting pleasures of this life.

Jehovah God satisfies the hungry hearts with good things,

but the rich—those who are too busy or satisfied with other things

—He sends away empty

(Psalm 107:9; Luke 1:53).

Will you “sell” the things of this world in order to gain the true riches?

The Hand that Rocks the Cradle Rules the World

by David Brandt Berg

 
 

What an important job a mother has!

The mothers of the next generation are the ones who are molding the future.

Motherhood is just about the greatest calling in the world.

Of course, taking care of a baby may not always seem very important,

but don’t ever minimize it.

β

Who knows what an impact that child may have on the lives of many others one day?

Motherhood takes

the strength of Samson,

the wisdom of Solomon,

the patience of Job,

the faith of Abraham,

the insight of Daniel,

and the courage and administrative ability of David.

It also takes the love of God,

that’s for sure!

What a job!

The thing that makes a mother so wonderful is her

self-sacrificial spirit that is willing to sacrifice

her time and strength and even her own health,

if necessary, for the sake of that child.

Any woman can have a baby,

but it takes a real mother to learn how to

train up a child in the way he should go”

(Proverbs 22:6)



PARABLE OF THE PENCIL

*author : Unknown*

Ω

The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box.

There are 5 things you need to know, he told the pencil,

before I send you out into the world.

Always remember them and never forget,

and you will become the best pencil you can be.

One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone’s hand.

Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.

Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.

Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.

And Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark.

No matter what the condition, you must continue to write.

The pencil understood and promised to remember,

and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

ζ

Now change places with the pencil.
Always remember them and never forget,
and you will become the best person you can be.
