5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. 6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. 7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. 8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.
16 “Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover to the Lord your God, for in the month of Abib the Lord your God brought you out of Egypt by night.
The word Observe comes from the word Shammar – which mean to guard, to keep, to observe. It also means to watch or watchmen. A watchman is not worth having if he does not alert people before the event. The watchmen looks for something to occur before the event to sound the alarm.
Here are some verses which uses it in terms of watchmen.
Except YHWH build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except YHWH keep H8104 the city, the watchman H8104 waketh but in vain.
The watchman H8104 said, The morning cometh, and also the night: if ye will enquire, enquire ye: return, come.
I have set watchmen H8104 upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of YHWH, keep not silence.
So Gideon, and the hundred men that were with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: H8104 and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that were in their hands.
2 Kings 11:5-7
5 And he commanded them, saying, This is the thing that ye shall do; A third part of you that enter in on the sabbath shall even be keepers H8104 of the watch of the king’s house;
6 And a third part shall be at the gate of Sur; and a third part at the gate behind the guard: so shall ye keep H8104 the watch of the house, that it be not broken down
7 And two parts of all you that go forth on the sabbath, even they shall keep H8104 the watch of the house of the LORD about the king
My soul waiteth for YHWH more than they that watch H8104 for the morning: I say, more than they that watch H8104 for the morning.
I love the next one as it talks of Babylon and we know what that is.
Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, H8104 prepare the ambushes: for YHWH hath both devised and done that which he spake against the inhabitants of Babylon.
Then Yahushua told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going.
When Yahushua spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
1 John 1:5-7
This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that YHWH is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Yahushua his Son cleanses us from all sin.
But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”
Psa_18:28 For You Yourself light my lamp; יהוה my Elohim makes my darkness light.
Psa 139:11 If I say, “Darkness shall cover me,” Then night would be light to me;
Psa 139:12 Even darkness is not dark for You, But night shines as the day – As is darkness, so is light.
Psa_112:4 Light has risen in the darkness to the straight ones, Those showing favour, The compassionate, And the righteous.
