That is exactly how we too felt when the Abomination of Desolation, the Great Apostasy, the Mystery of Lawlessness, and Mystery Babylon were unveiled to us! Whoever therefore breaks one of these Commandments the least, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches [them], he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” This word “fill” in v.17 (Greek like others, suggests: complete, confirm, meeting the full requirements, corroborate, establish, totalise or even: fully preach (the best rendering for Col. Others have suggested: execute, or live up to, or comply with, as the best rendering, especially in Matt. In Luke Yahushua confirms the permanent validity of the Law: “And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tittle of the Law to fail.” Dare we appeal to any other human authority in an attempt to evade Commandment-keeping, including the Fourth – the Sabbath? He is the only Head (authority) of His Body, the congregation or assembly. What about the many allegations made through the centuries that Yahushua annulled the Sabbath?
I am helpless, my strength is gone and I can hardly breathe,” NIV. For verily I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the Law till all come to pass [or be accomplished]. , the correct rendering of “breaking one of these Commandments the least” (see any Interlinear or the Rotherham Version), clarifies the difficulty created by the ordinary translations and brings it into harmony with all Scripture. What about the Pharisees’ accusations that our Messiah was breaking the Sabbath?

In the 4th century, when the fusion of Sun-worship with the Messianic Faith took place, Macrobius wrote, “All gods are only different powers of the Sun” (quoted by James Bonwick, This book will greatly help the seeker of Truth to return to the True Faith. “Just as HE CHOSE us in Him [Messiah] before the foundation of the world, THAT WE SHOULD BE SEPARATE (HOLY) AND WITHOUT BLAME before Him in love ” Eph. Take heed: without Separation no one will see Him—Heb. Only those who accept His only-begotten Son as Saviour, and then as his only Teacher (Matt. Elohim has given these to all other peoples for them to worship.” The New English Bible also relates this verse this way. This ended the long-standing persecution of the Christians, giving them the freedom to observe their own form of worship, unrestricted.The Gift of “discerning of spirits” must be prayed for, in order to discern between the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error (1 John 4:6), to discern between the Spirit of Yahúweh’ and “the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience” (Eph. Not many will accept the revelations coming forth in this book, “for many are called, but few are chosen,” Matt. “For the gate is small, and the Way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it,” Matt. “Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left,” Isa. 23:8 and 10), and only Leader, Shepherd and Overseer (1 Pet. They are those who truly come into the binding relationship with Yahúweh, the New Covenant, of which the Law of Yahúweh is still the contents—Heb. Only they will escape the end-time plagues and final destruction that is to come upon Mystery Babylon. In an attempt to justify this assimilation of Sun-worship with the New Testament Faith, much appeal was made, especially in the early centuries, to Malachi 4:2, the prophetic promise (interpreted by many to mean the Messiah) of the “sun of righteousness”. We do not want to justify this rather free translation, but in the light of Acts , 39 and 42, as well as Jer. This promoted a thankful attitude and an affinity towards Constantine, and likewise, he too was beginning to show some partiality towards the Christians.Another important point needs to be mentioned: The Sun-deity had, and still has, many names. Many are called, but few respond to His requirement, His demand for Separation (holiness). as “called, chosen and faithful.” How can I know that I am being chosen? Firstly, in the year 313, Constantine, together with Licinius, held a conference at Milan where they concluded a friendly alliance and adopted a policy of universal religious freedom.This fact soon becomes very obvious to anyone who starts reading on the subject. Simply by responding to His call “to be Separate” from the sins of the world. 12 Some have called these documents the “Edict of Milan”.)Josh Hutcherson After some alleged nudes of Josh Hutcherson came out in late July, we got tongue-tied But the pics never really, er, caught fire -- because, well, look at his jaw.

This book is meant for those who, out of thankfulness for the Great Redemptive Love shown on Golgotha, can but only respond by loving our Elohim with all their hearts, all their minds and all their souls. It appeals to those who have come to know their Saviour personally those who, like us, “serve Yahúweh with gladness”, who “rejoice in Yahúweh always”. He is the One Who motivates us to do the Will of His Father, to bring us to the place where we can truly say, “I delight to do Your Will, O my Elohim, and Your Law is within my heart,” Ps. This book is a call to worship the Father not only in Spirit, but in Truth also—John -24. Notice especially in 2 Kings and 41 how True Worship was mixed with idol worship. However, this figure of speech cannot justify the adoption of Sun-worship, just as the figurative reference to the Messiah as “the Lion of the tribe of Judah” (Rev. For primitive man, ignorant of the True Worship and the True Mighty One, it is only natural to start venerating or paying homage to the sun, moon and stars (the host of heaven), of which the sun is the most important, giving warmth to man and animal, and life-giving growth to plants. The ‘host of heaven’ was the dominant influence in Babylonian religion. 10:2, it prompts us to carefully heed His warning to remain in His Covenant, His Law, lest we become as the heathen who worship the host of heaven. Subsequently he extended further rights and concessions towards them.
They are those who strive to read and obey every Scriptural command, for they delight in doing so. They are those who no longer read and obey the Word in a “pick as you please” way, no longer in an a la carte fashion. When we have accepted Yahushúa as our Saviour, He lives in us, in our hearts, He and His Father (John ), working in us “both to will and to work on behalf of His good pleasure,” Philip. He is the One Who reconciles us with His Father (Rom. “Trust and obey, for there is no other Way”, should be the song sung from our lips, but also from our hearts. Note also, that even the high priest Aaron was persuaded by his people to lead them into a mixed worship, Exod. The Almighty’s wrath was kindled and He wanted to destroy everybody except Moses. That is the reason why, when Yahúweh commanded His people to keep the Ten Commandment Covenant, He warned them against the corruption of worshipping and serving the sun, and the moon, and the stars – the host of heaven – things which Yahúweh has divided unto all nations (Deut. comments, “The heavenly luminaries exercised a great fascination upon early man . The Egyptians also reverenced the sun, the moon, and the stars as symbols of deities. [Elohim] had the heathens to worship the sun, moon and stars ….” Because of similar comments by others, the Good News Bible took the liberty of rendering Deut. In Acts -42 we read of the Spirit-filled Stephen reprimanding his fellow Jews for not keeping the Law (Acts ), just like their forefathers who received the “Living Words” (verse 38 Green’s Interlinear and NIV), but the forefathers did not obey the Living Words. Acts reads, “Then Elohim turned and gave them up to worship the host of heaven ….” In Jer. The next great step further, the decisive breakthrough for Sun-worship, was the famous Edict of Constantine in the year 321.

Further, Hislop tells us in p.122, that “The Pagans were in the habit of worshiping the same god under different names.” And, even worse, with the syncretism that prevailed since the time of Alexander the Great, the deities of the various nations became identified with one another. Also, Ignatius, Justin, Chrysostom and Barnabas all had a major share in promoting anti-Judaism, which made the rejection of the “Jewish Sabbath” an almost natural consequence.
