I heard a someone else say this today. It was a remark which I am not sure they realise how much truth is hidden within.
They said ” As a child we learn what our parents and teachers teach us. We accept what they tell us as the truth. If we were to teach a person from when they were a child until they went to school, that what we know is a square, is called a circle or what we know as 1 + 1 = 2 actually equals three, the young child would accept it.
Then as they grow older they would be presented with information which is different to what they have been taught. Without question the person would initially reject the new light presented to them, arguing fighting and telling others that there is not light in the truth presented to them.
Now imagine this has happened on a much larger scale. With a whole nation for example. They have been told that YHWH name is G_D. They have been told that the Jews know all there is to know about G_D. And they have been told that the calendar He uses has a repeating seven day cycle.
The truth is very likely to be rejected. But in the few who are seeking the truth, the light will be accepted. Initially it will be but a small part. Then more and more, until YHWH’s word starts to shine as it should.
Its funny. I spoke to a Jew the other day. He told me that they had to change the Sabbath day due to the persecution from Rome. But others don’t seem to know this fact….
Friends. Family. Loved ones. I came across this quote tonight. It is worth while reading.
Satan is an ever vigilant foe. With every ray of revealed light, he has sought to bring in confusion, error, pride of belief and even forgetfulness. Many important truths have been lost and hidden over millennia of accepted errors, assumptions and traditions. Truth itself, however, cannot be destroyed. There are many, many gems of truth sacred amongst the rubbish of error. The seeker for truth must be both humble and diligent in his search from these scattered jewels.
When a person has been raised believing error, the search for truth can be very confusing. Truth, no matter how pure, can feel wrong emotionally, when it contradicts a person’s core beliefs. Yahuwah has left none to struggle alone. He has provided in His Word a standard by which anyone can discern what is truth and what is error. This rule is to use the combined weight of evidence.
Isaiah 28 contains a lengthy warning against false doctrines stubbornly clung to by those who do not use the weight of evidence as their rule in interpreting Scripture.
“Woe to the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim, and to the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, to those who are overcome with wine!”
Spiritual pride is one of the most insidious of sins. It is extremely difficult to get anyone who is spiritually proud to study with an open mind. In scripture, intoxicating wine is repeatedly used as a symbol of false doctrine. Thus, this passage is a warning to all who would cling to error, taking pride in their wrong beliefs.
And these too have gone astray through wine, and through strong drink wandered about. Kohen (The priest) and nabi (the prophet) have gone astray through strong drink, they are swallowed up by wine, they wander about through strong drink, they go astray in vision, they stumble in right ruling.
8 For all tables shall be covered in vomit, no place without filth.
9 Whom shall He teach the knowledge? And whom would He make understand the message? Those weaned from mik, those taken from the breasts!
10 For it is command upon command, line upon line, here a little, there a little.
11 For with a jabbering lip and a foreign tongue He speaks to this people. 12 to who,e He said ” This is the rest to the weary” and ” This is the refreshing” BUT THHEY WOULD NOT HEAR.
“In the mouths of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.” This was the standard established by Yahuwah Himself in matters of civil dispute:
One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established. (Deuteronomy 19:15)
At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death. (Deuteronomy 17:6)
Whosoever killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses; but one witness shall not testify against any person to cause him to die. (Numbers 35:30)
Have you ever seen one line of scripture which says Saturday is the Sabbath?
Have you ever seen one line of scripture which says the weeks are continuous?
Have you ever seen New Moon day in scripture and wondered how it fits into His calendar (not mans).
The evidence is there. If just three witnesses are not enough for you, I present to you twelve.
May YHWH bless you as you walk with Him with an open mind and a hear ready to receive and question the items presented here:
