THE LAW KEEPERS



ARE WE OBSERVING GODís HOLY SABBATH

ACCORDING TO HIS WORD?!

October 16, 2000 (Revised 9/18/01)

"And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made."

Genesis 2:3

The Sabbath of the Most High GOD of Israel is something we must regard with utmost awe and respect, as the Law of the Sabbath Day entails a "Sign" between YIHOVAH and HIS Chosen People, as wells as "death" if we do not observe this Day of Rest exactly as GOD has ordained! Therefore, it is incumbent upon those of us who fear YIHOVAH and know and understand HIS Law of the Holy Sabbath to closely study the "keeping of GODís Day of Rest" in order to disseminate the true facts about this Ordinance so that we can all act accordingly and in the Name of the Most High GOD of Israel. It must be this way or we are in jeopardy of not only sinning against Our GOD but of losing our lives. YIHOVAH makes no exceptions regarding the details of keeping HIS Holy Day of Rest. You either keep it correctly or you donít. If you know you are not keeping GODís Sabbath appropriately, then resign yourselves to accept GODís Judgment against you. How did YIHOVAH put it? "Öshew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins" (Isaiah 58:1).

We should not have a problem giving one day out of the week to Our GOD. After all, the Sabbath Day is not just because YIHOVAH blessed, sanctified, and rested on this day. It is also a day for us to rejuvenate ourselves so that we can start a new week refreshed, and more than that, it is a sign between the Nation of Israel and Our GOD.

In that I am a staunch believer in the Most High GOD of Israel and fear HIM greatly, I feel the need to call attention to the way we observe Our GODís Holy Day of Rest. I donít want us to become blasé about this most important aspect of our lives but rather to become as ONE PEOPLE in keeping of GODís Holy Sabbath. And yes, I know I am opening up a can of worms, but those who also fear YIHOVAH will support HIS Word and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.

"And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

"Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you.

"Ye shall keep the Sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

"Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

"Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

"It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed."

Exodus 31:12 - 17

In addition to the above Law on the keeping of GODís Holy Sabbath, it is very important to note Isaiah 58:13,14:

"If thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

"Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it."

Often I get E-mail regarding the Shabbat and GODís Feast Days enquiring how these days should be kept. Unfortunately, if every Hebrew Israelite group would provide input on exactly how GODís Holy Sabbath is to be kept, we might have more than ten different opinions. And when you think about it, this is absolutely ridiculous, as there is but ONE WAY to keep GODís Holy Day of Rest Ė ONE WAY and thatís HIS WAY! And if we plan to be numbered among the Righteous Remnant, we had better be diligent in seeking YIHOVAHís Truth in order to observe the Sabbath according to HIS Word and not our own understanding.

Many of us seem to believe that "holy convocation" has everything to do with GODís Sabbath. Well, it does, but it does not mean to "gather or assemble" on GODís Sabbath. Every leader of a "meeting place" that I know of wants his congregation attending services on GODís Holy Day of Rest, irrespective of the fact that they would have to either walk, drive, and even pay for train or bus fair to reach their destinations. And these leaders and members support their purpose with saying that we are supposed to have a "holy convocation" on the Sabbath. They believe that "holy convocation" means a calling to assemble or to gather or something of that nature. Well, consider this: above is posted GODís Law on exactly how we should observe HIS Sabbath, and there is no mention of gathering for an assembly on GODís Sabbath. Yet, these verses plainly clarify how the Holy Sabbath Day is to be kept. In any case, "holy convocation" will also be addressed herewith.

Just from reading Exodus 31st and Isaiah 58th Chapters, we get a more than clear understanding that we should not do any manner of work on GODís Sabbath day and that includes gathering or assembling on this Holy Day of Rest. We should realize that we have more than enough references in Scripture, ALL PRAISES DUE TO THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, that explain to us exactly how we should observe GODís Holy Day of Rest.

Please take note:

In Exodus 16th Chapter we are advised to prepare our Sabbath meals on the Sixth Day. We are also advised that we are not to go out of our places on the Seventh Day.

In Numbers 15th Chapter we are warned of the consequences of breaking this Sabbath Law when we read about a man who was put to death for gathering sticks on the Sabbath Day.

Exodus 20th Chapter reminds us to keep the Sabbath Day Holy, six days we shall labour and do all our work, but the Seventh Day is the Sabbath of the Lord Our GOD. "in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is with thy gates:"

Deuteronomy 5th Chapter is even clear on the use of the car on the Sabbath Day. "Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass [asspower, horsepower, or carpower], nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou." Brackets are mine.

Nehemiah, in the 13th Chapter, reminds the Nobles of Judah, "did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? Yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath."

Do we need Our GOD to bring upon us more evil than we already endure? Are we not supposed to be trying to get on Our GODís good side or fall deeper into this horrendous punishment? The only other Judgment for not keeping GODís Law of the Sabbath is death. We have got to realize just how important this Day of Rest is to Our GOD and exactly what it means to HIM and to us. Arenít we supposed to be seeking Our GODís Old Paths Ė HIS Paths of Righteousness (Jeremiah 6:16)? Then, why are we not keeping the "Sign" between YIHOVAH and us alive exactly as HE has ordained? Why arenít we striving to do all that we can to cause our GOD to hear our many prayers for help and deliverance?

OBEDIENCE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS ARE KEY IN SEEKING THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL!

I have said it before, and Iíll say it again: Sunday is a most opportune day to set aside for bringing the congregations together and at all costs, as Our GOD will not change HIS Law of the Sabbath to meet our concerns. Travel to "UNITY SHABBATS" and "Sabbath Worship and Studies at the Ďtempleí or meeting place" (on the Holy Sabbath) sound and seem great, but if these occasions are not in line with GODís Word, then they cannot be acceptable in GODís Eyes. And we can never expect to prosper and succeed if we do not observe GODís Holy Sabbath exactly as HE has advised us. Nothing is more important than keeping GODís Law precisely as it is written. And please understood that those who continue to travel on GODís Holy Day, should accept their fate. This is a hellish World and the sooner we return to Our GOD and HIS Law, the sooner we will be saved out of this evil and wickedness. I realize that our leaders seek to keep their congregations together, and this is indeed commendable. However, our chief concerns, as true "Servants of YIHOVAH," should be OBEDIENCE and RIGHTEOUSNESS! And without both these aspirations, we defeat our purpose.

There is nothing greater than coming together with serious Brothers and Sisters to Exalt and Praise and sing songs Glorifying the Holy ONE of Israel. And the Holy ONE of Israel would be too delighted if itís done in Righteousness according to HIS Word. And we all have six days on which to do this, but NOT the Seventh Day Sabbath of Rest. "Rest" means just what it implies: REST! And this was GODís intention from the very beginning when HE first set forth this Commandment to keep this Day of Rest "Holy."

Perhaps you can understand the consequences of disobedience from reading about Saul, the first king of Israel.

There is a "correct" time and manner to serve and worship YIHOVAH, and HE explained all this to us when our forefathers were in the Wilderness. Itís Our GOD that decides this manner and time and what it takes to make us a Holy People. Saul lost the Kingdom all because he thought it would be all right for him to do a good deed to offer a burnt offering in making supplication to the Holy ONE of Israel. Think about this: what could be greater than to give Thanks and Praise to the GOD of Israel for HIS Mercy and Help in a time of need? Isnít this what Saul did when he offered his sacrifice? But notice what Samuel told Saul:

"ÖHath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

"For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king."

I Samuel 15:22,23

Just because Saul broke the Law for making offerings and sacrifices, the Kingdom was taken from him. There is much to be learned from this Book of I Samuel, 15th Chapter.

The Holy ONE of Israel established a "Perpetual Covenant" in regard to HIS Commandment to keep HIS Holy Day of Rest. And in this process, HE also said that HIS Sabbath Day of Rest is a sign between HIM and the Nation of Israel. Therefore, I cannot believe that GOD would change a "Perpetual Covenant." That would not be consistent with HIS Law and HIS Word to HIS Prophets.

Letís not ever forget that we are in captivity for NOT doing GODís Law. Yes, of course we all know this, but then how can we justify condoning any changes whatsoever in the Law of the Sabbath or in any one of GODís Laws? Some Laws we cannot keep, but the Shabbat is the easiest of all to observe, and for this Holy Day, there should be no excuses. When we want to serve YIHOVAH, HE helps us. But HE also proves us to know whether we will be obedient to HIS Word or not. HE tried us in the Wilderness, and HE is trying us now.

"And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.

"And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDETH OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOTH MAN LIVE." Deuteronomy 8:2,3 (Caps. are mine.)

"ÖGod is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not." Deuteronomy 20:20

With this in mind, how can we expect Our GOD to hear our prayers and cries for Deliverance if we alter HIS Laws? If YIHOVAH said NOT to add to or diminish from HIS Law, then we must obey. And that means travel on GODís Holy Day of Rest is indeed profaning HIS Holy Day of Rest.

If we take it upon ourselves to change GODís Law of the Sabbath, what next will we change? Will we eventually go through all GODís Ordinances (as the White Jews have done) to amend them to suit our concerns, purposes, and modern times? My People, we have a lot at stake, and of most importance, we have our lives on the line and our Redemption to consider. Hence, we must come to an understanding to observe, keep, and do the Sabbath of the Creator and All-Mighty GOD of Abraham without making any changes whatsoever. In other words, WE MUST KEEP GODíS LAW, INCLUDING THE LAW OF THE SABBATH DAY OF REST, EXACTLY AS IT IS WRITTEN IN GODís BOOK OF THE LAW THAT HE GAVE TO THE PROPHET MOSES TO TEACH TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.

"And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them." Exodus 24:12

"If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;

"Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sickness, and of long continuance.

"Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto the." Deuteronomy 28:58 - 60

If whatever we do on the Seventh Day Sabbath is not written in GODís Law, i.e., "according" to GODís Book of the Law, then we err! Therefore, be very careful of what we undertake on this Holy Day of Rest.

Even long after the days in the Wilderness, King David warned and charged his son Solomon to keep GODís Ways, Statutes, Commandments, Judgments, and Testimonies "AS IT IS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES" (I Kings 2:3). The Judahites of Nehemiahís day also sought to keep GODís Way as it is written in the Law (Ezra 3:2; Nehemiah 8:13,14). And because of HIS Merciful Kindness, YIHOVAH left for us a final reminder in Malachi 4:4: "Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments."

See also II Kings 21:8; II Kings 23:25; Joshua 8:34; Joshua 23:6; II Chronicles 23:18; II Chronicles 24:6; II Chronicles 30:16; II Chronicles 33:8.

ISRAELITES DID NOT "TRAVEL" TO THE TEMPLE ON GODís HOLY SABBATH DAY!

Many leaders, as well as individuals falsely believe that AFTER THE TEMPLE was built that then the Children of Israel were permitted to change the Commandment of Exodus 16:29 (to "abide ye every man in his placeÖon the seventh day") to worshipping in the Temple instead on GODís "Perpetual Covenant" Day of Rest (Exodus 31:16). Todayís leaders couldnít be more wrong! If we are Commanded to keep the Seventh Day Sabbath as it is written in the Law of Moses, then we cannot leave our places on this Sabbath Day. And I cannot stress this point enough!

Even the Prophet Joshua stressed that the Israelites keep the Law of Moses.

"Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." Joshua 1:7,8

Consider Ezra and Nehemiah, the last of the leaders in Israel, as they, too, followed the Law of Moses, GODís Prophet. If when Moses received GODís Law of the Sabbath there was no Temple, how then can we fabricate a scenario of worshipping in one on the Seventh Day Sabbath? Just know that to do so would be to add to the Laws, Statutes, Judgments, and Ordinances that Our GOD gave to the Prophet Moses for our Way of Life.

"Go, inquire of the LORD for me, and for them that are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is poured out upon us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the LORD, to do after ALL THAT IS WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK." II Chronicles 34:21

"Also Jehoiada appointed the offices of the house of the LORD by the hand of the priests the Levites, whom David had distributed in the house of the LORD, to offer the burnt offerings of the LORD, as it is written in the law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, as it was ordained by David." II Chronicles 23:18

If King David kept GODís Ways as it is written in GODís Law according to what the Prophet Moses taught the Nation of Israel (I Kings 2:1 - 4) while they were in the Wilderness, then you can be sure that this great King who was a man after GODís own heart and a Judge in Israel DID NOT permit the Children of Israel to travel to the Temple on GODís Holy Sabbath Day of Rest. You can be sure that King David and Josiah insisted that everyone keep the Seventh Day of Rest according to GODís Charge "by the hand of Moses" (II Chronicles 35:6,12) Therefore, everyone abided in their places on this Holy Day:

"See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day." Exodus 16:29

If the Holy Sabbath Day of Rest is for us to "REFRESH" ourselves, then how can our leaders justify telling their congregations to travel to their temples and meeting places by automobile, busmobile, footmobile, horse and buggymobile, ass, or even donkey? Just think about this: There was only one Temple, and it was in Jerusalem. Can you really perceive that the Children of Israel traveled from their dwellings from northern and southern Israel to Jerusalem? If they did, they wouldíve had to use their asses, and what did GOD say about that?

"Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD THY God hath commanded thee.

"Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:

"But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, NOR THINE ASS, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou." Deuteronomy 5:12 - 14

The Holy ONE of Israel in HIS infinite Wisdom knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that if HE did not tell us to stay in our places on HIS Holy Sabbath Day that we would leave our dwellings and profane it by doing all manner of things on HIS Holy Day of Rest.

"Thus saith the LORD; Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem;

"Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do ye any work, but hallow ye the sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers." Jeremiah 17:21,22

I also appeal to everyone to take heed and consider GODís Commandments for the Sabbath Day and REST exactly as it is written in the Laws GOD gave to the Prophet Moses.

HOLY CONVOCATION: YE SHALL DO NO WORK THEREINÖ

"Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the Sabbath of the Lord in all your dwellings." Leviticus 23:3

Regarding "holy convocation," that people seem to believe means a "call to assembly," please know that I have done quite a bit of research in the Hebrew Scriptures on these two words. And one is hard pressed to find where it means to gather or to assemble. I firmly believe "holy convocation" followed by "no manner of work shall be done" is interpreted, "call this a holy day on which no manner of work is to be done" IN ALL YOUR DWELLINGS. In other words, wherever we "dwell" we are to abide there and "Rest" on GODís Holy Sabbath Day of "Rest." We do not dwell in GODís Holy Temple. We (will) only visit this Holy Place on occasion to serve and worship Our GOD.

According to the "Hebrew" Scriptures, "holy convocation" is written meekrah kodesh (not to be confused with chodesh/month). Meekrah: reading matter; Bible; recitation; and convocation, as well as "call" and "called." Kodesh: holiness, sanctify; holy place according to Ehud Ben-Yehuda / David Weinsteinís Pocket English-Hebrew / Hebrew-English Dictionary.

Clearly Ė CLEARLY there are differences in the usage of these verbs: to call (meek-rah) and to gather/assemble (ah-sahf, kah-batz, and ah-tzah-rah). All you need do is sit with someone with knowledge of Hebrew and go through the Law and the other Scriptures of the "Old Testament" and see the differences in the meanings of the verb "to call" ("to give a name to" or "to make a request or demand") and the verb "to gather together" and/or "to assemble" the people.

I have taken the Hebrew Text and searched through the Law and some of the "OT" for the words "call" and "called." The word "call" means "to summon" or "to look for" or "to seek out:" as in the following examples taken from Scripture:

"to see what he would Ďcallí them"

"then began men to Ďcallí upon the name of the Lord"

"ícallí his name Ishmael"

"thou shalt Ďcallí her name Sarai"

"We will Ďcallí the damsel"

"she Ďcalledí his name Moses"

"GOD Ďcalledí unto him out of the midst of the bush"

"Pharaoh Ďcalledí for Moses and for Aaron"

"Moses Ďcalledí for all the elders in Israel"

"which was Ďcalledí the land of giants"

(In some cases you will see "called" in English and "ah-marr" in Hebrew. Please see Isaiah 4:3)

Leviticus 23:3 also uses the same verb (mem,koof, resh, aleph) to "call" as it is used above. Therefore, "Holy Convocation" can only mean "CALL THIS A HOLY DAY AND DO NO WORK THEREIN!"

I have checked dozens of passages in the "Hebrew" Scriptures where the words: to come together, gather, gathered, and assemble are mentioned. And the only one that I found that comes close to a "calling to assemble" using the root word karah (koof, resh, aleph) is in Jeremiah 4:5, and this Scripture has nothing whatsoever to do with GODís Holy Sabbath. Nor does it make a reference to a "holy convocation." You might find it interesting to research "solemn assembly" (auhtzeret), as this is most definitely talking about a "gathering," or "assembly" but no where will you find the Holy Sabbath mentioned in reference to coming together for a meeting. By all means, please check the Hebrew, and again, you will see the verb "auhtzeret" for "assembly" - NOT "Holy Convocation" as commonly believed.

There are many passages that make mention of "Solemn Assembly," and I beg of you to read them in Hebrew for a better understanding of knowing the differences in what Our GOD meant by "Holy Convocation" and what HE meant by calling a "Solemn Assembly." Please read the following Scripture: Leviticus 23:36; Numbers 29:35; Deuteronomy 16:8; II Kings 10:20; II Chronicles 7:9; Nehemiah 8:18; Joel 1:14; and Joel 2:15.

In this same regard, please consider Joel 2:15 that is most definitely speaking about a "call" to assemble, but yet differs from the "holy convocation" in Leviticus 23:3 that people seem to believe is a Commandment to assemble on GODís Holy Sabbath Day of Rest.

"Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:" Joel 2:15

If the above verse had been written along with Leviticus 23:3, there would be no question that Our GOD wants us to "assemble" on the Seventh Day Sabbath. But it isnít there! Hence, we must call this day "Holy," do absolutely no work, and permit our bodies to "REST" and be refreshed on every Seventh Day.

I urge everyone with knowledge of Hebrew to delve deeply into GODís Word so that we can all come to an agreement about GODís Holy Day of Rest. Itís our duty, as Hebrew Israelites to strive to follow GODís Paths of Righteousness Ė not my conviction, but to follow Our GOD, YIHOVAH and yes, as best we can!

It would indeed appear and even make sense that the Sabbath is for coming together to worship YIHOVAH, but thatís not what GOD HIMSELF has ordained. HE said to stay in our place and rest on this Holy Day. Hence, we are to keep this day Holy and do no manner of work and refresh ourselves as Our GOD tells us to do. Therefore, getting dressed and traveling to a meeting place on GODís Holy Sabbath is not only a real hassle but is without a doubt breaking HIS Law. The wise will not permit ANYONE to entice them to err. Know GODís Law for yourselves, and make sure that you fully understand exactly what we must do accordingly and as it is written in GODís Book of the Law.

If we are to be a light to the World to Exalt the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, FROM JERUSALEM then we must exemplify GODís Word as it is written in HIS Book of the Law. YIHOVAH wonít have it any other way! And if we are to represent the Most High GOD of Abraham, we have no choice but to keep, proclaim, teach, live, and do GODís Laws, again, as best we can.

SUGGESTIONS AS TO HOW TO OBSERVE GODís HOLY SEVENTH DAY SABBATH

In addition to Exodus 31st and Isaiah 58th Chapters, the following is a succinct routine as to how to observe GODís Holy Seventh Day Sabbath:

- Prepare the meals for the Sabbath on "Friday" before sundown.

- At "Friday" sundown, begin to pray, rest, eat, sleep, meditate, or read. But do no cooking, and donít use the microwave.

- Copy the "Torah Readings" on The LawKeepersí Hebrew Calendar from the following WebSite that provides weekly readings of GODís Law, as well as other Scripture to be read on the Shabbat, New Moons, and other Holy Days: www.thelawkeepers.org (This is just a suggestion.)

(TV, radio, entertainment, sex, cooking, games, children playing outside and taking walks, all pleasures, use of the computer, and "teaching" classes on GODís Holy Day of Rest are ALL FORBIDDEN. Rule of thumb: Let us rest, read, repose, refresh, and replenish our souls.)

Some suggestions for Sabbath foods:

Sandwiches, potato salad, macaroni salad, vegie salad, cheese Ďní crackers, fruit salad, potato chips, nuts, seeds, boiled eggs, pop corn, cookies, cake, pie, your favorite fried meats, and the list goes onÖ

JUST REMEMBER TO PREPARE YOUR MEALS BEFORE SUNDOWN "FRIDAY" and to keep this Sabbath Day Holy! Oh yes, the winter season is upon us, and when you get home from work on "Friday" there is hardly time to prepare much of anything. Therefore, you will have to start getting up very early on "Friday" morning before work to cook, or do so on "Thursday" night. I generally have everything in the house on Thursday that I will prepare for the Shabbat. It doesnít hurt to think days ahead - actually, itís very helpful to do so.

I pray that Our GOD will be with all of us who seek to live according to HIS Book of the Law (given to us by Moses the Prophet) and that HE will hurriedly cause those of us who fear HIM and search for HIM with our whole heart in Truth and in Righteousness during these troublous times to find safety under HIS protection and guidance.

"Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the Lord your God; and the Lord will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you."

Jeremiah 26:13

Please consider this Message and scrutinize it for GODís Truth. My hope is that we will soon see "Eye to Eye" on the Seventh Day Sabbath and ALL GODís Feast Days and "dates" and serve and worship Our GOD HIS Way in Righteousness in the land of our fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

LET YIHOVAH BE EXALTED AND PRAISED BEFORE THE WORLD IN TRUTH AND IN RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR EVERMORE!

Tziona Yisrael,

Servant of the Most High GOD of Israel

For HIS Holy Nameís Sake

"To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." Isaiah 8:20
