  1. I have a question, please. Why do people feel the need to look for reasons to try and justify not keeping The Sabbath day, on the Day God said we should keep it? What could possibly be so horrible to people, about keeping The Sabbath day as day of rest (without all the nonsense written in the Talmud obviously - which was what Jesus went up against the Jews about, as we find written in the Gospels) and doing so, on the day that God said to do it, and on which Jesus and the Apostles all therefore also kept it? Why not keep The Sabbath on the Sabbath and be glad about it? Why are people against it?
  2. Agreed, and what a shame it is. It seems, that most people are stuck tending to look for differences in opinion and understanding, much more often than trying to look for and find similarities that could be agreed and then built upon, and being willing to for the meantime overlook differences with others in order to be able to strive for unity instead of just being divided. Sadly though, it mostly seems to go the way of division. This is probably due to the humans' tendency to fear all that is unknown an unfamiliar to it (because it sees new information as a potential threat to its established ways and comfort zone). It seems to do this in order to be able to more easily find a way to justify rejecting any new information out of hand, rather than having to search for the similarities and then also being willing to make the needed changes, as more and more truth is being discovered. The latter requires continual work, which is probably another reason why this is avoided by most (like the plague). The first time I was fortunate enough to have read the entire Bible and then followed it up with reading the corrected version of The Koran, I was absolutely astounded to see the complete harmony that is present thoughout all of it, when reading the correctly translated and interpreted version. The message is truly the exact same Message from Beginning to End. As far as language studies go, I believe one can certainly spend a lifetime to try and put enough of the pieces together. Best I can do, is recommend reading all of the Bible and then also The Koran in the new King of kings' Bible translation (which you can check against the KJV, if desired, as it is in complete harmony, only it is better and more accurate than KJV) after reading TWHOFTF (and having digested its contents). In doing so, one comes to the realisation that there is more than enough repetition of ALL of the important things throughout Scripture, for there to be absolutely NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER about what God expects from us. God has kept His Word and has not allowed The Scriptures to be corrupted, but has fully preserved His Message to all of mankind. Doing that therefore, would also therefore be my sincere recommendation, to any others. JAH's book TWHOFTF explains what it all means and then reading of Scripture (with spiritual eyes now open) confirms all of it. Seeking harmony and striving for unity, I agree is surely preferred over war, and there exists perfect harmony in His Word for all of us to learn from, if we wish it. Peace!
  3. Matthew 6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt NOT be as the hypocrites [ARE]: for they love to pray standing in the churches and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Sura 4:138. To the Hypocrites give the glad tidings that there is for them (only) a grievous Penalty;- 4:139. Yea, to those who take for friends Unbelievers rather than Believers: is it honour they seek among them? Nay,- all honour is with God. 4:140. Already has He sent you Word in the Book (Bible), that when ye hear the Signs of God held in defiance and ridicule, ye are not to sit with them unless they turn to a different theme: if ye did, ye would be like them. For God will collect the Hypocrites and those who defy Faith - all in Hell-Fire;- 4:141. (These are) the ones who wait and watch about you: if ye do gain a victory from God, they say: "Were we not with you?"- but if the Unbelievers gain a success, they say (to them): "Did we not gain an advantage over you, and did we not guard you from the Believers?" But God will judge betwixt you on the Day of Judgment. And never will God grant to the Unbelievers a way (to triumph) over the Believers. 4:142. The Hypocrites - they think they are over-reaching God, but He will over-reach them: when they stand up to prayer, they stand without earnestness, to be seen by men, only little do they hold God in remembrance; 4:143. (They are) distracted in mind even in the midst of it,- being (sincerely) for neither one group nor for another. Whom God leaves straying,- never wilt thou find for him The Way. 4:144. O ye who believe! Take not for friends Unbelievers rather than Believers: do ye wish to offer God an open proof against yourselves? 4:145. The Hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire: no helper wilt thou find for them;- 4:146. Except for those who repent, mend (their lives), hold fast to God, and purify their religion as in God's sight: if so they will be (numbered) with the Believers. And soon will God grant to the Believers a reward of immense value.
  4. Sura 4:47. O ye People of the Book! Believe in what We have (now) revealed, confirming what was (already) with you, before We change the face and fame of some (of you) beyond all recognition, and turn them hindwards, or curse them as We cursed the Sabbath-breakers, for the decision of God MUST be carried out. 4:154. And for their Covenant We raised over them (the towering height) of Mount (Sinai); and (on another occasion) We said: "Enter the gate with humility"; and (once again) We commanded them: "Transgress not in the matter of the Sabbath." And we took from them a solemn Covenant. 4:155. (They have incurred divine displeasure): in that they broke their Covenant; that they rejected the Signs of God; that they slew the Messengers in defiance of right; that they said, "Our hearts are the wrappings (which preserve God's Word; we need no more)";- nay, God hath set the seal on their hearts for their blasphemy, and little it is that they believe;- 4:156. That they rejected Faith; that they uttered against Mary a grave false charge; 4:157. That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ the son of Mary, the Messenger of God";- but they killed Christ not, nor crucified Christ, but so it was made to appear to them (as they crucified the human body called Jesus, that Christ the spirit-being used - Psalm 22; Isaiah 52:13 to 54:1; Zechariah 11:10-13; Matthew 27), and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) Knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed Christ not:- 4:158. Nay, God raised him up unto Himself and God is Exalted in Power, and in Wisdom;- 4:159. And, of the People of the Book, they all must believe him (Christ) before their death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them (and you) (Surah 43:61);- 4:160. For the iniquity of the Jews We made unlawful for them certain (foods) good and wholesome which had been lawful for them;- because they hindered many from God's Way;- 4:161. In that they took usury, though they were forbidden; and that they devoured men's substance wrongfully;- We have prepared for those among them who reject Faith a grievous punishment.
  5. Well, you may not know it (?) but people don't generally do that without them having a reason. Perhaps you were never made aware of this: Sura 4 (The Women) 4:54. Or do they envy mankind for what God hath given them of His Bounty? But We had already given the people of Abraham the Book (Torah) and Wisdom, and conferred upon them a great kingdom. 4:55. Some of them believed, and some of them averted their faces from him: and enough is Hell for a burning fire. 4:56. Those who reject Our Signs, We shall soon cast into the Fire: as often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for fresh skins, that they may taste the Penalty: for God is Exalted in Power, and in Wisdom. 4:57. But those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, We shall soon admit to Gardens, with rivers flowing beneath,- their Eternal Home: therein shall they have companions pure and holy: We shall admit them to shades, cool and ever deepening. Of course, you can just choose to disbelieve these words of warning to you as well. But how anyone in their right mind could think of and consider that potential outcome, and then still decide its worth to take a gamble on it I find to be nearly beyond belief and also to be deeply disturbing. Entire Sura
  6. Christ also told His followers not to go to church like the hypocrites do. Matthew 6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt NOT be as the hypocrites [ARE]: for they love to pray standing in the churches and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and WHEN THOU HAST SHUT THY DOOR, pray to thy Father in private (Enoch 56:5; Sura 7:55); and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. Once the veil is taken away then it suddenly becomes clear why He said that too. God's Laws are all about ensuring Freedom for one and ALL, and not allowing selfish evil men to dominate over you, or over your neighbour. But as long as you are blinded by the veil (still looking at it from a purely human and therefore totally selfish point of view and only thinking about what it is that you want, instead of putting your neighbours before your "self", as we are told to do in the Commandments) then you won't ever be able to see it, or enter into it (The Kingdom). But once the veil is removed and you now can "see" with your spiritual eyes (and are therefore seeing clearly and able to look at things unselfishly and therefore, putting others before "self") then you are suddenly able to see just how wonderful and beautiful it is! One People. One Law. All ONLY under God (Pure Love). Freedom for ALL Cancellation of all DEBT... NO MORE politicians, NO MORE banksters, no more poverty, no more crime... All of that is contained in God's Law! Which is why TPTB (including Elizabeth II and the Popes) don't want people to read it and have gotten all the churches to tell everyone that it has all been "done away with". "Paradise on Earth" "World without end"... etc.
  7. @archangel The Jews were never able to see the beauty and the Wisdom of The Law and they had made up the Talmud (oral traditions of the fathers) and were using it to bind heavy burdens onto the people, instead of keeping God's Law, to their own and everyone else's benefit. They did this to gain power over the people (instead of actually keeping The Law themselves, which if they did, would have made them unselfish) and everybody who did not follow their Talmud rules was considered a "sinner". They were also the lawyers (scribes) and politicians (pharisees). Jesus condemned them for having done this, along with their Talmud (man-made rules and regulations - which we today know as legislation) in Matthew 23: 23:1 Then spoke Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 23:2 Saying, The lawyers and the politicians sit in Moses' Law seat: 23:3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe of God's Law, [that] observe and do; but do not ye after their example: for they say, and do not (and make up their own laws against God's Orders - Deut. 4:2). 23:4 For they bind heavy burdens (the Talmud) and grievous to be borne, and lay [them] on men's shoulders; but they [themselves] will not lift one of their fingers to remove them. (and it goes on) They never did see the beauty and the Wisdom of The Law (God's Law) and how fair, wonderful and perfect it is for everyone to be able to live together in peace, harmony, safety and freedom (which is why is it called The Perfect Royal Laws of Liberty, in The Bible) because they were only looking at it from a totally human and selfish point of view and thinking what they could gain over others and were therefore blinded by their own arrogance, ignorance and selfishness. And so, they made up their "Talmud" in order to oppress and enslave everyone. THAT is what Christ was against, and also came to abolish too (along with them - the priesthood) so that people could return to keeping God's Law instead and everyone could as a result be set free from their evil clutches. See: http://jahtruth.net/rabbis That is why they hated and then murdered Jesus. When the veil is taken away, we suddenly become able to "see" it all with spiritual eyes, instead of with your human eyes. Then at that point, it suddenly all makes perfect sense, and you see the Beauty and the Wisdom of The Law, and how wonderful and fair and good it is for everybody and that it is the only way to live together in peace and harmony. John chapter 3 tells what needs to happen for the veil to be taken away, before we can then "see" with our spiritual eyes and see The Kingdom. The best explanation you will find anywhere out there about this, is the one at the link that was shared a few posts back and was highlighted in blue (that also tells us exactly what was abolished and what was not (the Moral and National Law) and why). God's Law is a Blessing to all those who keep it, and it was given to us to protect us from evil and keep us free, and keep us safe from selfish and evil people (like the ones known today as "TPTB" or "THEM") who want to rule over and enslave others, like THEY have been able to do to us, exactly because we did not keep ONLY God's Law. Under God's Law, you only have to work and be a slave for someone else (be an employee) for 6 years, IF you even have to work for someone else (be a slave) in the first place. Everyone that has to work for someone else, is a slave. The word "employee" is just the modern word for SLAVE, if you think about it! THEY - The Hierarchy Enslaving You. THEM - The Hierarchy Enslaving Men.
  8. By misunderstanding Paul you will get into serious trouble, as Peter warned: 2 Peter 3:15 And account [that] the longsuffering of our Lord [is] salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the Wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 3:16 As also in all [his] epistles (letters), speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as [they do] also the other Scriptures, unto their OWN destruction. 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know [these things] before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. 3:18 But grow in grace, and [in] the Knowledge of our Lord and Christ the Saviour. To him [be] glory both now and for ever. Amen. Humans don't want to keep The Law, because it makes no sense to a human. But The Law does make sense to spirit-Beings (the real you is a spirit-Being) that is temporarily incarnated inside of the human body you are wearing. Paul wrote about the natural/carnal man (the human-animal) and that it is at emnity (opposed) to God's Law: Romans 8:4 That the Righteousness of The Law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not following the flesh, but following the Spirit. 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 8:6 For to be carnally minded [is] death; but to be spiritually minded [is] life and peace. 8:7 Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: for it is not subject to The Law of God, neither indeed can it be. 8:8 So then they that are in the ways of flesh cannot please God. 8:9 But ye are not of the flesh, but of the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is not his. 8:10 And if Christ [be] in you, the body [is] dead because of sin; but the Spirit [is] life because of righteousness. 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also revitalize your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you. 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body (crucify the "Self"), ye shall live. Please do a search online, for "The Way home or face The Fire - By JAH" and download it (its a free pdf). It will explain everything to you, if you are truly and sincerely seeking to know. Peace to you and God Bless.
  9. To say that The Law (in its entirety) and The Prophets (who ALL championed God's Laws and prophesied of the setting up of The Kingdom, here on Earth) have been abolished, would be to contradict Christ. The Moral and National Law remains. Only the parts of The Old Covenant that relate to the priesthood, churches and the animal sacrifices for redemption from sin have been abolished and are therefore now obsolete. For a complete explanation of what has been abolished and what has not been abolished and why, check out this link. Please also note the following: Matthew 5:16 Let your Light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy The Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from The Law, till all be fulfilled. 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least COMMANDments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of heaven. 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall EXCEED [the righteousness] of the lawyers and politicians, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of heaven. Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though One rose from the dead. 24:25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe ALL that the Prophets have spoken: 24:26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? 24:27 And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, he expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. Revelation 15:3 And they sing the "Song of Moses" (Old Covenant - Deut. 31) the servant of God, AND the "Song of the Lamb" (New Covenant), saying, Great and marvellous [are] Thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true [are] Thy Ways, Thou King of the holy people. Please see the link provided above. Only the parts of The Old Covenant that relate to the priesthood, churches and the animal sacrifices, for redemption from sin have been abolished. It does not affect the national and moral Law, in any way. To think that Paul meant the entire Law of God has been "done away with" is making a BIG mistake.
  10. I quoted the entire chapter for the sake of providing context. Not according to Christ.
  11. 2 Corinthians 3:1 Do we begin again to commend ourselves? Or need we, as some [others], letters of commendation to you, or [letters] of commendation from you? 3:2 Ye are our letter written in our hearts, known and read of all men: 3:3 [Forasmuch as ye are] manifestly declared to be the letter of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the Living God; not in tablets of stone, but in fleshy tablets of the heart. 3:4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency [is] from God; 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the New Covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. 3:7 But if the ministration of death, written [and] engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which [glory] was to be done away: 3:8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be more glorious? 3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation [be] glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. 3:10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. 3:11 For if that which is done away [was] glorious, much more that which remaineth [is] glorious. 3:12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: 3:13 And not as Moses, [which] put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the Old Covenant (Testament); which [veil] (the veil not The Covenant - Rev. 15:3) is done away in Christ. 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses (the Torah) is read, the veil is upon their heart. 3:16 Nevertheless when it (the Torah) shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away. 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord [is], there [is] liberty. 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Lord Who is Spirit. 5:4 For we that are in [this] tabernacle (human body) do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up by Life. 5:5 Now He that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing [is] God, Who also hath given unto us the zeal of the Spirit. 5:6 Therefore [we are] always confident, knowing that, whilst we [the Being] feel at home IN the body, we are absent from the Lord: 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 5:8 We are confident, [I say], and willing rather to be OUT OF the body, and to be present with the Lord. 5:9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether in [the body] or out [of the body], we may be accepted by Him. 5:10 For we must all appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ; that every one may receive the (recompense for) things [done whilst] IN [his] body, according to that he hath DONE, whether [it be] good or bad. 11:21 I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. Howbeit whereinsoever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also. 11:22 Are they Hebrews? So [am] I. Are they Israelites? So [am] I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So [am] I. 11:23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I [am] more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of ONE mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you. <[The second [epistle] to the Corinthians was written from Philippi, [a city] of Macedonia, by Titus and Lucas.]>
  12. Acts 13:14 But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and sat down. 13:15 And after the reading of The Law and the Prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, [Ye] men [and] brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on. 13:16 Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with [his] hand said, Men of Israel, and ye that fear God, give audience. 13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the Prophets which are read every Sabbath day, they have fulfilled [them] in condemning [him]. 13:42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath. 13:43 Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious converts followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God. 13:44 And the next Sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the Word of God. 15:13 And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men [and] brethren, hearken unto me: 15:14 Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for His name. 15:15 And to this agree the words of the Prophets; as it is written, 15:16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: 15:17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom My name is called, saith the Lord, Who doeth all these things. 15:18 Known unto God are all His works from the Beginning of the world. 15:19 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God: 15:20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and [from] fornication, and [from] things strangled, and [from] blood. 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath day. 15:23 And they wrote [letters] by them after this manner; The Apostles and elders and brethren [send] greeting unto the brethren which are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia: 15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, [Ye must] be circumcised, and keep The Law: to whom we gave no [such] commandment: 15:25 It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, 15:26 Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15:27 We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who shall also tell [you] the same things by mouth. 15:28 For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; 15:29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well. 16:13 And on the Sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spoke unto the women which resorted [there]. 16:14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard [us]: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken by Paul. 17:2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three Sabbath days reasoned with them out of the Scriptures, 17:3 Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom, said he, I preach unto you, is Christ. 18:4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.
  13. Exodus 20:8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. [It is NOT wrong to do GOOD deeds on the Sabbath. The Sabbath was made for man. Man was not made for the Sabbath.] 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 20:10 But the seventh day [is] the Sabbath of the "I AM" thy 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] within thy gates: 20:11 For [in] six days the "I AM" made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore the "I AM" blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it. 31:13 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 "I AM" that doth sanctify you. Leviticus 19:3 Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep My Sabbaths: I [am] the "I AM" your God. Deuteronomy 5:12 Keep the Sabbath day to sanctify it, as the "I AM" thy God hath commanded thee. [It is NOT wrong to do GOOD deeds on the Sabbath. The Sabbath was made for man. Man was not made for the Sabbath (Mark 2:27 to 3:5).] 5:13 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work: 5:14 But the seventh day (Saturday) [is] the Sabbath of the "I AM" 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. 5:15 And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and [that] the "I AM" thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the "I AM" thy God commanded thee to keep the Sabbath day.
  14. Matthew 12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath days. Matthew 24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the Winter, neither on the Sabbath day: Matthew 28:1 After the (two) Sabbaths, as it began to dawn toward the first [day] of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. Mark 2:24 And the politicians said unto him, Behold, why do they on the Sabbath day that which is not lawful? 2:25 And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him? 2:27 And he said unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath: 2:28 Therefore the Son of Man is Lord also of the Sabbath. 3:4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace. 6:2 And when the Sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the church: and many hearing [him] were astonished, saying, From whence hath this [man] these things? and what wisdom [is] this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? Luke 4:16 And he came to Gennesaret, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the church on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read. 4:31 And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the Sabbath days. 6:8 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth. 6:9 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the Sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy [it]? 6:10 And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other. 6:11 And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus. 13:10 And he was teaching in one of the churches on the Sabbath. 13:14 And the ruler of the church answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the Sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day. 13:15 The Lord then answered him, and said, [Thou] hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or [his] ass from the stall, and lead [him] away to watering? 13:16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom SATAN hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day? 14:1 And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief politicians to eat bread on the Sabbath day, that they watched him. 14:2 And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy. 14:3 And Jesus answering spoke unto the lawyers and politicians, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath day? 14:4 And they held their peace. And he took [him], and healed him, and let him go; 14:5 And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the Sabbath day? 14:6 And they could not answer him again to these things. 23:54 And that day was the preparation, and the Sabbath drew on. 23:55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid. 23:56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Sabbath day according to the Commandment. John 5:9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the Sabbath. 5:10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the Sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry [thy] bed. 5:16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the Sabbath day. 5:17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. 5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the Sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. 7:22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the Sabbath day circumcise a man. 7:23 If a man on the Sabbath day receive circumcision, that the Law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the Sabbath day? 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. 9:14 And it was the Sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. 9:15 Then again the politicians also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see. 9:16 Therefore said some of the politicians, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the Sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. 19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath day, (for that Sabbath day was an high day [The Passover - Wednesday 21/4/34],) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and [that] they might be taken away.

  15. Have mentioned this before and will mention it again. I don't have a problem with another person having a different opinion (as long as it is not against The Law, obviously). Here is where I have a problem: When people make statements like "The Bible teaches a flat earth, so if you don't believe in a flat earth, then you don't believe the Bible." Not only are such statements completely untrue, but they are also extremely divisive. Like Rob Skiba is doing, and by doing so he is also getting lots of others to follow after his example and do likewise. After his example. People who then follow him in doing that and also start doing and saying the things that he does, are thereby, knowingly or unknowingly, making themselves into disciples of Rob Skiba. Not of Christ. That is not what Christ taught. Christ did not spend His time talking about the shape of the Earth. Rob Skiba is not just someone having a personal opinion. He is publicly stating his opinion as fact along with issuing a challenge by saying that anyone who does not agree with him therefore is not a true believer of The Bible. So what he is doing, is quite serious and it is being divisive, in the extreme. It is also totally and completely absurd. It is just like every other organised religion out there, that has done the same thing by claiming that only their way is the correct way and yet, there are thousands of them. Matt. 12:30
