and God said "Let there be Lights in the Firmament"
I am a beautiful reflection
Of the Sun’s affection
Loved by the Sun
Kissed by the Moon
The apple of my Daddy’s eye
A twinkle in the evening sky
Sometimes the first; sometimes the last
I am the future; I am the past
Although I sometimes don’t appear
Be assured, I’m always here
“Proclaim Liberty thro’ all the Land to all the Inhabitants thereof…”
This proclamation is etched on what is known as the “symbol of American Independence” – the Liberty Bell housed in Philadelphia, the City of “Brotherly Love.” But where does this saying come from?
It is a quote from Biblical Scripture, Leviticus 25:10 pertaining to the Jubilee called for by God after He brought the House of Israel out of their oppression in Egypt…
Exodus from Egypt
“For the LORD our God, it is He that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:” Josh 24:17
Jesus said we should pray in this manner: My Father who is in heaven; Holy is Your Name, Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven…”
If you’ve seen our presentation on The Firmament, you know there are numbers and signs contained in the two greatest bodies we see in the heavens, the Sun and the Moon, relating to their diameters in relation to the two great structures in God’s Word, Noah’s Ark and the Ark of the Covenant. These contain measures only the Creator could have known from the very foundation of creation. These two heavenly bodies will be the stars of a great show coming soon!
“Gather My Holy Ones/Elect together to Me; those that will make a Covenant with Me by an offering. And the heavens shall declare His righteousness: for God Himself is Judge. Hear, O My people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify before you: I am God, even your God. Offer to God thanksgiving; and pay your vows to the most High: And call upon Me in the Day of Tribulation: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” Psalm 50
As of 2005 54% (3.6 billion people) of the world’s population considered themselves adherents of an “Abrahamic religion.” Christianity being the largest at 33%, Islam second at 21% and Judaism at 0.02%. All “Abrahamic religions” claim a direct lineage to the Biblical Patriarch, Abraham.
Jesus said, If you are the children of Abraham, you would do the works of Abraham. So let’s see how well connected these “religions” really are to Abraham!
“Let us therefore be in awe/reverence, lest a promise being left us of entering into His Rest, any of you should come short of it… There remains, therefore, a keeping of a Sabbath to the people of God.” Hebrews 4
Many argue that the day of rest called for by God is Saturday (the seventh day of the week) or Sunday (the first day of the week). God called for His people to keep the weekly Sabbath, the seventh day, as a token to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy unto Him. But the true Sabbath is much bigger than that. It is written, “Don’t be ignorant of the one thing: One day to the LORD is as a thousand years” (2 Peter 3:8), and “in six days, that is six thousand years all things will be accomplished” (Barnabus 13:4-5). Genesis 2 tells us that God finished His work on the sixth day and on the seventh day He rested and sanctified that day to be kept to Him.
“Mene, Mene, Tikel Upharsin.” These were the Hebrew words written on the wall in the Biblical Book of Daniel. The only one who could interpret them for Belshazzar, King of Babylon, was Daniel, a Jewish man who had been taken into captivity from Judea by Nebuchadnezzar. Before interpreting the words, Daniel reprimanded Belshazzar for not humbling himself before the God of Heaven. He had in fact exalted himself against God, stolen the vessels from the Temple in Judea and was using them in his own temple to drink wine and party with his friends. Belshazzar worshiped gods/idols of gold and silver which “neither see, nor hear, nor know” anything. Therefore, God sent a hand to write on the wall before the king: “Mene. Mene, tekel, upharsin.” When the king’s “wise” men, magicians, and priests couldn’t tell him what it meant, he finally called Daniel.
“According to some millenarian teaching, it is the “transport” of (a “believer”) from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.” Said to be based on the Revelation 21:1-6, they actually think “the chosen” will be lifted up bodily into the sky, leaving nothing but a pile of clothes behind. Millenarianism itself is actually based in Zoroastrianism which is an ancient pagan, Persian religion.
What does Easter have to do with Passover? In a word: nothing! Both “holy days” are celebrated in the Spring and both are described as “abomination” in God’s Word. These designations are all they have in common. Easter originated in ancient Babylon as the worship of the “god” Tammuz and his mother, Ishtar/Ashtoreth and while they say Passover originates in the Torah, when looked at closely there is little resemblance to what they do and what is contained in the Book of Exodus and all the Law. Hebrews 10:1, says “the Law is a shadow of good things to come and not the very image of the thing.”
According to Wikipedia, “Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick, is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland.” This doesn’t really give much information! The truth is the whole tradition of Patrick is nothing but a deception designed to make the Irish people forget their heritage and follow Roman Catholicism.

While the ‘Lord’s Prayer’ continues to be mindlessly recited in congregations who gather in their ‘houses of worship,” not many know the origin or the meaning of the prayer. Y’hoshua’s preliminary instruction on how to pray to the Father in heaven is this:
“When you pray, youshall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray… that they may be seen of men… And don’t use vain repetition as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Don’t be like them, for your Father knows the things you have need of, before you ask Him. Therefore you should pray in this manner: Continue reading “Deliver Us from Evil”
