YaHWeH's system and Other Systems.

1Co 10:20  But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. 1Co 10:21  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.  2Co 6:15  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

There are systems of many things in the world as well as organisations and it is possible to be in more than one at the same time.  However, I hope to show you with Yahweh’s spiritual system one can only belong to it solely and exclusively.  So any other system is "sacrifice to devils"!!  This mean it is not like a meal where you can have a bit of this and a bit of that to make up a system to your liking or participate in more than His system.  If your present denomination has got a bit of it's system wrong, it may be "sacrificing to devils".  Second point is God only has one system with specific ways of which Moses and Yahshua were the two main teachers.  That system was for both believing Jews and Gentiles.  For prove of the latter point see previous studies on Jew and Gentile scriptures.

Supporting scriptures are:

Eph 4:5  One Lord, one faith, one baptism.  I hope those three components do not need clarification.  Together they are only found in one system, that of Yahweh God.

1Co 10:17  For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

1Co 10:20  But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. 1Co 10:21  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.  2Co 6:15  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

The above verses clearly says all other systems except that as given to Israel by God is of the devil and anything one sacrifices outside Yahweh’s system is to devils.  Not the thing itself as singing, or tithing, but to whom and by whom it is received.  Neither can one have duel fellowship.  Just like one cannot serve God and mammon which is really what people try to do when they drink from more than one system. 

Rom 11:17  And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree..;  One olive tree of which both Jew and Gentile believers become one. 

Eph 3:6  That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:  I hope we are all aware of the promise of God as found in the Old Testament.  That He would save and protect His people, send them a Messiah and grant them eternal life.  Scriptures like Israel would be a light to the gentiles, to the Jew first and then the gentiles, etc

Eph 5:1  Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; Eph 5:5  For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Eph 5:6  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Eph 5:7  Be not ye therefore partakers with them. Eph 5:8  For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: Eph 5:9  (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Eph 5:10  Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. Eph 5:11  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Eph 5:15  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Eph 5:17  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Verse 7 says not to be partakers with those who disobey God, meaning His commandments and other instructions.  In those instructions we find ones stating we stay as far away as possible from other systems.  To have no knowledge of their ways, not even to be curious of them as curiosity not only kills the cat.  Deu 12:30  Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.

Remember how Moses utterly destroyed the golden calf by grinding it to powder.  How God instructed things of value i.e. gold, associated with other systems to be utterly destroyed? 

2Jn 1:9  Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 2Jn 1:10  If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 2Jn 1:11  For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

In short, the doctrine of Christ the Messiah, was to bring believers back to God by teaching them to keep His Father’s commandments.  Paul’s teachings were to the same end Rom 15:18  For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,  and he said there is no other gospel; even if an angel comes and tells us there is Gal 1:8  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.  The problem is when people do not understand the context of Galatians and “grace” that they think there is another “grace” way.   Grace is simply the mercy or favour of ~god which he bestows on those keeping His commandments.  There remains one way for all humans; Jew and non Jew. 

Now let us look at some of the other systems mentioned in scripture. Remember all are of the devil.

Firstly let us hear how serious God takes false God worship. 

Exo 20:3  Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Meaning gods of any type.

Exo 20:4  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:  These type of gods are specifically idols and idolatry. 

Exo 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I Yahweh thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; Exo 20:6  And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. 

God says to go after such gods is iniquity and is to hate Him.   The punishment  falling on some of ones future generations.  The opposite of not hating Him is to love Him.  This is shown by keeping His commandments.  It is repeated many times in Deuteronomy, Joshua, etc.  The same thing Yahshua said in Mark 12:30, John 15:10 and    1John 5:3   Joh 15:10  If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.   1Jn 5:3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 

Note there are two types of false gods.  Ones of which no idol is made such as the sun, moon and planets called the host of heaven in scriptures as Deu 4:19  And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.    and others represented by idols as that of Laban in Gen 31:19 or the molten calf made by Aaron in Ex 32:4.  I would say the worship of either type comes under the classification of fornication with the latter specifically under idolatry. 

We are not told the origin of Laban’s idolatry system; but we are told God had a system from the beginning which Cain, Abel, Noah and Abraham followed.

Gen 4:3  And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. Gen 4:4  And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: Gen 4:5  But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect... 

Gen 6:12  And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.  Gen 7:2  Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.  Gen 8:20  And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.  

Gen 13:4  Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the LORD. Gen 14:18  And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. Gen 14:19  And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:    Gen 22:7  And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? 

Abraham’s son and grandson Isaac and Jacob knew of Abraham’s God and His ways; but after their descendants were in Egypt for 430 years they had forgotten both and adopted the gods and ways of the Egyptians.  The time had now come, as prophesied, to take them out of Egypt and teach them His name and ways.  It is at this point we get to clearer see some of the worship systems of the devil as practiced and believed by the Egyptians.  

Their systems was based around many types of gods.  Fertility gods, creature gods and host of heaven gods.  Even the god of the river Nile hence why pharaoh’s daughter probably rescued baby Moses thinking he was a gift from the river god.  If you have ever been to the pyramids of Egypt, studied their gods or via other sources you may know something about their worship systems and beliefs inclusive of those pertaining to the afterlife.  They embalmed Pharaohs and buried them with possessions and servants for their after life.  They built earthly monuments in mirrored positions to those of the planets.  You may have seen pharaohs holding an “Ank” in their palms.  This is like a crucifix cross; but with the top horizontal bar making a circle instead.  This represented the two folks of the river Nile which brought fertility to the crops of the land.  You may also have seen sun disc on their heads or on a held pole.  Yahweh’s ten plagues were specifically chosen to show the Egyptians their god’s had no power.  That it was the God of Moses and the Israelites that was in control. 

Some things we know about the Egyptian system is they had moral laws as stealing and adultery.  We know this from Abraham and Pharaoh in Gen 12:18 and Joseph being put in prison for suspected adultery.   Egyptians did not mix with the Hebrews, it being abomination to them or their gods Gen 43:32.  At least some of their gods were represented by idols i.e. the molten calf of Exo 32:4  And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. Exo 32:8  They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 

A last example being they worshipped with dance, loudness and naked. 

Exo 32:16  And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables.

Exo 32:17  And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp. Exo 32:18  And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear. Exo 32:19  And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.  Exo 32:25  And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:). 

We then get a detailed narrative of Yahweh’s system as He passes it onto the Israelites via Moses.  They include commandments, statutes and laws.  Some to God and others to fellow man.  It is the same system as practiced by Abel, Noah and Abraham.  We see the same practices as not to have mixed marriages to prevent being snared to worship other gods as happened to Solomon.  Through other laws of God we see His thinking regarding separation and keeping things holy as Lev 19:19 mixing garments, Ex 20:25 stones for altars,  Lev 21:14 who a priest can marry.

For other examples see other articles; but one scripture is Gen 15:10 and Lev 1:17.   I would say most, if not all, religious systems have the same or similar moral laws.  Even non religious systems and countries have such laws and justice regulations.  So it is the laws or holy times and days pertaining solely to their gods that separate them.  In Yahweh’s case it is times for what He calls “Holy Convocations” (i.e. see Lev 23).  

So please make sure you get this point.  In my present knowledge, the only thing that separates an atheist or heathen from Yahweh God, assuming they are both keeping the moral laws via religion or countries legislation, is their keeping of His holy periods solely without mixing with holy periods of other god’s or religions.  Many systems have common policies as political ones; but each party has policies exclusive to them as an identification and separation.  Similarities does not mean the same system.

EXPOUND ON IMPORTANCE OF SABBATHS WEEKLY  and annual see Ex 20:8; 23:10-22; Lev 23. 

Methods of worshipping these gods same or similar to that of to Yahweh. Fasting (see 1King 21:9 Jezebel and Naboth’s field, Dan 6:18; Zec 7:5), eating food offered to gods (Lev 17:7; Deut 32:17, 1Cor 10:25,28); weeping Eze 8:13  He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do. Eze 8:14  Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. Eze 8:15  Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. Eze 8:16  And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD'S house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.,  

I will not go through all the ways as I am sure you know of at least some of them as dancing and singing, cutting oneself, rounding ones beard, marking of the body.  They had priests, sacrifices, prophets or magicians and soothsayers as they were called, holy days etc.  See Joseph marrying Egyptian priest daughter (Gen 41:45, Act 14:13, Rom 14:5). 

The idol may not necessarily be a carving or such; but a standing image representing, say a fertility part of reproductive system of humans.  An example being the pine tree or Christmas tree, pine cone or even a triangle pointing up for one genital and down for another.  Lev 26:1  Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God. 

The origins of a lot of Christian religious practices have been covered up over the centuries so that today seekers are deceived of their pagan significance and hateful view of God they portray.  But what happened to the Egyptian worship and religious systems?  Well you may know from the statue of Daniel chapter 2 and history that the Babylonian empire conquered Egypt, they in turn were conquered by the Medes and Persians, then came Alexander the Great with the Greek empire, followed by the Roman empire which took the bible history to the time of the Messiah.  Each succeeding empire embracing and incorporated the religious system of the former empire which already had similarities with their own.  So by the time we get to the New Testament epistles we read of Paul saying 1Co 8:5  For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,).  A similar state of affairs to that of Elijah at Mount Carmel  1Ki 18:25  And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods,....

Those various gods were called lords.  Hence the reason why the name of Yahweh God was taken out and replaced with the word Lord.  We see further evidence of these pagan or gentile worship systems in Act 17:16  Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.  Act 17:22  Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. Act 17:23  For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. Act 17:24  God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;  Act 14:12  And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker. Act 14:13  Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people.  Act 19:35  And when the town clerk had appeased the people, he said, Ye men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Jupiter? 

You may know of other examples as Simon the sorcerer in Acts 8:9. My last point for the bible period is just like with Joseph being separated from the Egyptians, the succeeding Roman empire also had it unlawful for the system and teachings of Yahweh to be mixed with that of theirs Act 16:20  And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, Act 16:21  And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.  We are to also remember, that Yahweh had the directive to Israel until the time Peter was instructed to baptise Cornelius.  Act 10:28  And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.   

If we trace today’s religious systems back to their origins we come back to one for Yahweh God and all others of the deceiver and counterfeiter.  This includes the denominations through which most of us came.  We all have to start somewhere and one good thing about these counterfeits is they have similarities to God’s to get our interest.  The problem comes if we get addicted to the counterfeit.   Remember Deut 12:30? He did not want you to know as a little leaven corrupts the whole loaf, body and system.  He did not even want an apparent  valuable part of a pagan system being used in His i.e. the gold of their idols. 

Now to the crucial part of the relevance of all this knowledge for us today.  It appears every time God formulates a plan for His created, the devil comes up with a counter plan.  In the garden of Eden God had good plans for Adam and Eve.  The devil stole their joy by making them make the wrong choice between God’s way and his way.  Remember he wants to be god or at least your god 2Th 2:4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

He can achieve this if you follow the teachings of his ministers of apparent light into a counterfeit system with some theology copies from God’s; but a little arsenic or poison of his own.  2Co 11:13  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 2Co 11:14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2Co 11:15  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 

After the bad choice of Adam and Eve God had another plan to save His created; but all the time the devil comes up with lies and deceits to deceive us.  Persuading our forefathers to kill His prophets, trying to kill baby Yahshua, tempting Him in the wilderness, shifting Peter like wheat, martyring the apostles and trying to persecute believers to extinction.  When that failed to eradicate all, his apparent ministers of righteousness took over the church just when God had set a time for the world to be reconciled to Him through a true knowledge of His ways and faith in the redemptive blood of Yahshua.  Spirit and TRUTH.  There is only one absolute truth under which all God’s believers can be saved.  Not a shade of or part truth.  I have tried to show you the system of God from earth’s creation.  

Yahshua said if you break one commandment of His Father you break all.  Because they come as a set

Today it is essential we are able to discern the system of God in it’s entirety.  To distinguish it from a counterfeit which may have many similarities and honey to attract us.  Flavoured honey that we personally like.  Choir, songs, music, friends, building and lastly an apparent bible based church.  I have heard that so many times from people about their church yet it is biblically obvious it is not such a church.  They may have some forms of godliness; but they deny the full distinguish factors of Yahweh’s church.  His holy appointed times and days. Without those days, it is limited to being a nice, moral, love teaching church whose memorial days are that of an ancient pagan god.  God has not put His name there.  He clearly set the environment and place where He puts His name and resides.  It has to be holy which means keeping or at least teaching His ways and days.

The bishop of the pagan church of Rome was made head of the apostles church.  It would take too long to go into the history.  Some of it is covered in the “Have I Got It Right God” book.  In brief, the communion service of today and worship on the day itself is derived from offerings to the sun god via an open roof pagan church and altar.   The holy days of Easter, Xmas, mothers and father’s day are of pagan god’s or times.  Most of you have heard it and know it.  All Christian denominations of today are either Catholic based or Protestants who broke away from the Catholics yet retained most of the inherited teachings.  The majority starting less than 200 years ago.  Protestants are i.e.  Pentecostal, Baptist, Methodist, church of England etc etc.  When I did a study a few years ago there were over 2,000 denominations.  This week I heard there are over 4,000 and rising.  God’s plan is to unite, the devils to divide.  None of these denominations have followed the bible and taken the narrated Jewish religion as their light; but instead the Catholic’s.   This is what scripture says should or would happen   Mic 4:1  But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. Mic 4:2  And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.  Zec 8:23  Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you. 

God is only where He puts His name and it is not in a similar system; but one that keeps His holy periods exclusively and solely.  A paramount element of that system is Lev 23:1  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Lev 23:2  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts. Lev 23:3  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. Lev 23:4  These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons

It is commonly taught  “Sabbath” means “rest”.  It does not otherwise our sleeping periods would be called Sabbath!  It is the name given to a specific period of time between sunset the 6th evening and the 7th.  Other periods were given numbers 1-6.  What we do with the periods is not what it means.  No one calls Saturday football or shopping according to what they do on it!  Because of this false meaning, probably of the deceiver, some people think they can expend their energy Monday to Friday and stay at home on the Sabbaths to rejuvenate due to tiredness, or because of the distance to travel to the holy gathering or other similar reason and fulfil the command.   What does Lev 23 say?  It is a holy convocation which means a gathering of the community in His temple.  It was a time at a place where the whole nation of twelve tribes and strangers of Israel met before God.  They came to learn about Him, praise and thank Him as a big mass.  To bring a sweet savour to Him.  Then when they were scattered they formed local meeting places as synagogues.  In today’s circumstances with public transport or cars there should be no reason we cannot gather together.  One does not have to travel  100 miles or for four hours.  In any case we have all day to give it to God. Isa 58:13  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:  Staying home is the easy option, even if one reads their bible.  Paul travel by ship to get to the appointed place of worship.  Others in Acts 2 came from other nations like the eunuch in Acts 8.   People travel miles on the wrong day to go to the wrong  system, yet hesitate or do not do the same for God’s place and system.  Do not let your function, position or joy in that wrong system be what keeps you out the kingdom.   

Mat 10:37  He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.   

I would say resting or staying home to receive visitors falls into our own pleasure unless there is no communal place to meet as in the first year out of Egypt before the tabernacle was made.  The day is not ours; but God’s and He should get the benefit in His prescribed way regardless of our tiredness.  It was not given to us to work upto the Sabbath then use it as our rest; nor to rest in preparation for going out that night, the next day to church or other.  Our resting is of no benefit to God only us so we can go back into the world and do our own business, pleasure or worst give our praises to a false god system the next day.

Old Testament prophets of Yahweh, Yahshua Himself and the apostles kept the holy convocation command, unless their lives were in danger.   Even then the apostles kept it.  The lady with the sick son looking for Elisha was asked by her husband 2Ki 4:23  And he said, Wherefore wilt thou go to him today? it is neither new moon, nor sabbath. And she said, It shall be well.  Speaking of Yahshua  Luk 4:16  And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.  Speaking of Paul Act 17:2  And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,. 

I won’t go through all scriptures; but just to jog your memory with a couple more Act 5:25  Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.... Act 5:29  Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.   Act 21:11  And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles. Act 21:12  And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem. Act 21:13  Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Yahshua.

Paul did not think of breaking the convocation command because he was teaching the word of God Act 18:21  But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.  See also Acts 20:16, 24:11.  The only time they were not at a gathering in a synagogue was when they were in a city that had no synagogue Act 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 spake unto the women which resorted thither. 

So brethren, my point is, too many of us are staying home for no legitimate biblical reason.  Stay home and rest on Sundays, Xmas or Easter; but not on Yahweh’s Sabbaths.   Avoid keeping the Sabbath convocation demand at a denomination simply because they may keep the seventh day Sabbath; yet deny and do not keep the annual ones.  They are not of Yahweh’s system only have a form of it.  

Lastly, we should not stay away from a congregation of THE system because we disagree with some of the leader’s teachings.  That may be simply seeking our own edification, recognition and importance.   Prophets of the Old Testament, Yahshua and the apostles did not fully agree with the leaders.  There were for example difference in beliefs between Pharisees and Sadducees yet they met in the synagogue.   Paul disagreed with Peter once yet held him as the head of the church and sought the council’s guidance.  He also fell out with Barnabus; yet worked together and later reunited.   In short, the apostles continued  attending the synagogues at the set times and were not deterred.  They did not replace such times with house meetings as some Christians are taught.  Those were additional not replacement times just like we today may have a bible study during the week yet attend church on  the weekly and annual times. 

Brethren, I do not have to teach you the basic principalities and foundation of Christ as love, repentance, faith toward God, doctrine of baptisms, resurrection of the dead and of eternal judgment.  Some of you may know that better than I and even the false system preachers sometimes speak highly of the same.  The devil can use teachings of God like a counterfeiter can use technology of the originator or pattern holder.  That does not make it the real McCoy.  What I can teach you what I belief and think some of you are missing.  That not keeping these correct appointed times of Yahweh God, the things that separate Him from other gods, may prevent you inheriting the eternal promise and it would be a shame to have you miss out on that promise for something so easy to do.   

I hope in the limited time I had to present this topic I have shown Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the Messiah and the apostles had a specific worship system and places of worship different to any other although there were similarities between some.  We are called to join that system and that system only.   Having no fellowship with others.  That does not mean having no fellowship with other congregations of the same system.  Our worship in any other system is not directed to Him; but the one who set up that comparable and counterfeit systems even if they use the same bible for their teachings.  It is not in the what you use; but how you use and understand it.  The holy convocation days are not for our personal physical benefit as a day of rest; but rest from our work for the purpose of holding the convocation and praising our creator.  Obviously we cannot do both at the same time.  Except for illness, there should not be any reason to keep us from gathering.  Infact, if possible, in illness come to the gathering for prayers. 

Biblically there is not a time when Yahweh’s system did not include His specific and identifiable appointed times.  Old Testament, New or the new heaven and earth.   Isa 66:23  And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD. Isa 66:24  And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.  Zec 14:16  And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. Zec 14:17  And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. Zec 14:18  And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.   Zec 14:19  This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 

Life is short.  People die every day at all ages for various reasons.  I am sure you know of many such cases.  Trying to stay out of danger, going about their daily business or on holiday and suddenly death comes.  Recently the young MP got killed.  By tomorrow may be too late as it is not promised to anyone and there is nothing you can do about it when you have that unexpected death.  Delayed obedience is disobedience and makes us a child of the devil.  If God did not spare the angels or Israel, there is no basis to presume he would spare us.  Let us all today purpose in our hearts to be a better obedient child of God living fully by His commandments, statutes and laws and having the faith of the redemptive blood of Yahshua His son.  Do not be deceived.  Remember the opening points.  God does not mix with the unholy nor does His system have any association with others.  We cannot take things of God’s and add to another and think it is now acceptable to Him.  We should not think we can change one of the deceiver’s counterfeit systems from the inside.  We have to change systems to one that keeps His weekly and annual Sabbaths.  Ofcourse in addition to all the other things He directs.  A moment of time is one thing that cannot be duplicated or there is more than one of it.  Hence why God probably chose it as a definitive distinction similar to today’s use of one’s date of birth as an identification.  As His system is holy and unpolluted, He calls on us to be holy and unpolluted.  If we desire to keep the commands of God, we make them of non effect when we add traditions onto them (Matt 7:13).  We are instructed not to add to or take away from.  Not to divert to the left nor right.   If we do any of these we have polluted His system.  Basically making it another system. 

Now believer and seeker, what doth Yahweh thy God require of thee, but to fear Yahweh thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul.  To keep the commandments of Yahweh and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good(Deut 10:2).  Do not think nor let the deceiver’s ministers tell you all does not mean all. 

I have tried to tackle this difficult topic with the same love for you as God has for you.  At times I have not been too direct as I know many would take offence: but let me end speaking plainly as many  requested of Yahshua.  If you keep both the weekly seventh day Sabbath but still attend Sunday services, you have added to the system.  If you keep the weekly; but not the annual  ones you have taken away from the system.   If you keep all God’s Sabbaths; but have added a false doctrine as 1843/44 you have added and taken away from the system.  There are many additions and omissions that others do as Easter, Xmas, Mother and Fathers days the result being to make what could be a system of God into one of the deceiver.  You know his name as given in 1 Cor 10:20 above.  Anything foreign to God is not of Him and anything He did not prescribe is foreign to Him!

True servants of Yahweh God may be seen to be the odd one out, the ugly duckling who does not follow the normal Christian practices and beliefs.  That is because we are not ducks; but swans.  We may have similarities as web feet, way we swim, feathers etc; but we are peculiar people.  Yahweh’s holy days are peculiarity.  If you are a swan stop following the ducks.  Birds of a feather flock together and that is why I started this fellowship for those who want to find other swans.  By our example hopefully others will also want to be peculiar for God.  Thereby in a small way achieving  God’s plan, being a light to others to find the one way to Yahweh.  They join His system not swans join theirs.  It is not about segregation; but honesty and truth.  Spirit and truth.  Having the light and not having it darkened or risk it being put out by false practices, traditions and theology. 

2Co 6:16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 2Co 6:17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 2Co 6:18  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Rev 18:4  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
