I really do rightfully get upset with any and all of the Bible distorters, legalists, Judaizers, Seventh day Adventists who try to mislead God’s Christians and others. They clearly and falsely use the flesh, pride to try to attain their spiritual things, their accomplishment while Jesus clearly had said (John 15:5 KJV) I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
Messianic Jews and the Seventh day Adventists, Judaizers still do falsely teach that we must all abide by all the necessary “laws” of the Holy Bible whilst also keeping all the scriptures and all of Jesus commandments . Firstly the use of the word “laws” in the Old Testament Bible, specifically does mean the Mosaic “laws”, or the “laws” of the Torah, or only all the “laws” of the first 5 books of the Bible. These the old covenant “laws” themselves were only valid AND SOLELY FOR THE JEWS until the coming of Christ firstly. True Christians do not mix the Old and New Covenants “laws”, laws as defined by the New testament, nor do they rightfully now support any of the Judaizers and their “laws”, or any or all those persons who want to keep the Torah “laws” and just add Jesus to it. Today the entire Old Covenant “laws” was to be casted out by the Christian but we must all still follow His new teachings that are valid in the New Covenant as per (Galatians 4:21-31).
The New Covenant teachings of Jesus ALSO did not include Sabbath-keeping “laws”and many other “laws”of the now obsolete Torah. True Christians believe that the “laws” has been completely abrogated and replaced with the Law of Christ.; Messianic Jews and the Seventh day Adventists, Judaizers do still try to uphold invalid laws, part of the Bible falsely do draw people away from the truth of Christ. I rightfully do have very little respect for the people who come even here now and even do demand that we follow after their teachings, that obey the law as they define it too, and they mostly quote the old testament and omit or distort many of the new testament verses.. but they still do want to teach others, cause the devil is pushing them to do so , to lie mostly now too.. for when I can see they are totally ignorant to me they are just still ignorant fool. Now are they really listening to the voice of God or to the voice of the devil now? why do they listen to the devils voice over God is it due to their false, selfish pride, the need to do one’s own thing? it sure seems so.. It falsely still appeals to one’s flesh one being able to earn one’s salvation or to add to it.
Most people are lazy, this firstly they really do not know God, they do not study, read the Bible even 5 minutes a day, so they now got, get their doctrines, understanding, theology by listening to others AS TO WHAT THEY say as to what they Bible said. and thus still ignorant fools hat now do come to us under false pretense…claiming to be educated, sincere, honest now too.. Now when you hear something, even from your mother, or someone else, or read something, you often can see it still as a distortion, a partial truth only, not the full actual or real context.. God says his sheep know his voice, they do hear it and they now do not follow merely the voice of the others. So Cursed be he that follows after any man. Since God now for many years talks to me directly, I prefer to get the whole truth, his daily will directly from Him and not mere people. THESE PERSONS WHO PREACH PARTIALS TRUTHS AND NEW TESTAMENT BIBLICAL DISTORTIONS ARE NOT THE REAL CHRISTIANS WHO WILL GO TO HEAVEN TOO , BUT ARE THE NON CHRISTIANS WHO WILL GO TO HELL EVEN WITH ALL OF THE UNSAVED JEWS WHO REJECTED JESUS CHRIST
The only main portion of the Bible that you really need to read, to follow is the New Testament because we are no longer under Old Testament covenant, law – essentially the the New Testament replaces the basic requirements of the Law and the Prophets of the Old Testament. Believers should still embrace the whole Word of God but now they do not follow the non applicable old testament laws, rituals. The Old Testament has been superseded by the New Testament. We are not under the old testament laws but under those laws solely in the new testament… the law of the spirit..(Rom 8:2 KJV) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
The majority of true Christians have often accepted the fact that Jesus of Nazareth–the founder of their religion, their Messiah, as being the promised original Jewish Messiah too, and also as the second part of the Trinitarian God–was God himself and thus he Jesus not only was a Christian but indisputably a Jew but anyone being a Jew does not mean you make it to Heaven without accepting Jesus death on the Cross.. John 13:8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. :9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
JESUS ALSO RELIED FULLY ON GOD’S HELP, LEADING. (John 5:19 KJV) Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.(John 5:30 KJV) I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
If you supposedly have studied the Bible do know it well then confirm to me where in the new testament the keeping of the LAST DAY OF THE WEEK, the traditional Saturday Sabbath is mentioned? and where also in the new testament did Jesus and the apostles mention the promised return of the Jews to Israel after their foretold expulsion?
THE CHRISTIANS THEY MERELY NOT JUST REST FROM THEIR WORK ON SUNDAY BUT THEY ALSO RATHER REST IN GOD’S FINISHED WORK “And upon the first day of the week, [SUNDAY] when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight,” Acts 20:7. BUT THE FACT THAT CHRISTIANS REST ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK AND NOT THE LAST DAY OF A WEEK SPECIALLY SHOULD CLEARLY INDICATE EVEN TO US ALL THAT THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE JEWISH SABBATICAL REST AND THE CHRISTIAN SUNDAY DAY OF REST. IS THIS NOT SO? AND NOW WHAT ARE THE SERIOUS DIFFERENCES TOO? HOW MANY CHRISTIANS HAVE ENTERED ACTUALLY INTO THAT REST TOO? INTO GOD’S REAL, PROMISED REST?
HEBREWS 3:7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, 8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: :9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. 11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) 12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; 15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. 6 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief. 4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. 3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. 6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: 7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. 12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
THE BEST PLACE TO FIND THE ACTUAL ANSWERS IS TO KNOW AND READ THE BIBLE ITSELF WITH THE DIRECT HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT FIRSTLY! NOT MERELY LISTENING AS TO WHAT ANY MERE MAN SAYS.. (2 Cor 13:8 KJV) For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. Pray first and let the the Holy Ghost bring you the true meaning of the scriptures, for the Holy Ghost is always firstly involved in the understanding of all of the scripture. Humbly ask the Holy spirit to guide you, and not mere man.. Hebrews 4 and Isaiah 28 above have very similar messages. Hebrews confirms it and directs us to enter into God’s rest. if we are not already laboring to enter into God’s rest. Isaiah 28 heeds a similar warning. It says that the people that will not hear of, follow after God’s rest they next they will only understand the world of the LORD with stammering lips and that they will be snared and taken, upset by it.
We do begin to understand how to enter into God’s rest when we first learn to cease from our own works, our own will and understandings. The word, two edged, describing the word of God in Hebrews 4 above means “double mouthed” (from Strong’s concordance). This means that the word of God is double mouthed and has two meanings. One is understood in truth with the help of the Holy Ghost, the other is understood by others as being untruth, as a mind that has not yet entered into the leading of God and his rest would rather understand. One approach will bring spiritual life; the other way will bring one still spiritual death. If we use the Holy Ghost to read the scriptures, the life of God, He will help us to see the difference between using our own mind, soul and our spirit, for if we use our own mind, soul and spirit when reading the word, our soul will be cut off from the life giving spirit, from God and his truth.
LET US LOOK AT WHAT THE WHOLE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT THIS REST, APPLICABLE LAWS AND NOT THE TOO OFTEN ISOLATED, DISTORTED, OUT OF CONTEXT REFERENCES.

(Acts 2:26 KJV) Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
(Acts 9:31 KJV) Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.
(2 Cor 12:9 KJV) And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
(2 Th 1:7 KJV) And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
(Heb 3:11 KJV) So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
(Heb 3:18 KJV) And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
(Heb 4:1 KJV) Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
(Heb 4:3 KJV) For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
(Heb 4:4 KJV) For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.

(Heb 4:8 KJV) For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.

So it should be clear to any honest persons who had read and studied the Bible the Christian Sabbath, rest is now basically different from the Jewish one? the rest that many Jews themselves also have missed and have not entered in..
HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED THE REFRESHING REST BY THE EMPOWERMENT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?
(Heb 10:38 KJV) Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
(Heb 10:39 KJV) But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
(Heb 11:1 KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
(Heb 11:2 KJV) For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Why should anybody want to practice ONLY ONE DAY OF REST per week, when you can receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, as the Early Church did on the Day of Pentecost, according to Act 2, and have REST SEVEN DAYS A WEEK!
I also do really believe, practised that praying in tongues help us, expedites us into entering into God’s rest for us. One sure way we build up our spirit man is by praying in tongues. …Enter into the Master’s rest!Likewise the Spirit helps our infirmities. For we know not what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Rom.8:26).
“For with stammering lips and another tongue shall He speak unto this people. To whom He said, `THIS IS THE REST wherewith ye may cause the weary to REST, and this is the refreshing’, yet they would not hear.”Isaiah 28:11-12
Reader, let’s get real with God and accept the truth of the gospel. Only those who repent, confess their sins, accept Jesus Christ as lord and FULLY receive the holy Ghost, with the evidence of speaking in tongues, next have found a REST, THE EMPOWERMENT, THE VICTORY, DEFEAT OF THE ENEMY which God promised to His people. I know this is a hard saying for many, and I would not say it unless I knew it to be true.
The original purpose of the tradditional Sabbath was ABSOLUTE, PHYSICAL REST. Everyone who receives the gift of the Holy Spirit, speaking in unknown tongues, enters into God’s rest. There is no record that the Early Church in the Book of Acts preached or practiced the observation of the Sabbath by Old Testament guidelines.
“The LAW made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did, by the which we draw nigh unto God,” Hebrews 7:19.
People who today teach that you must observe the Sabbath DO NOT observe it FULLY OR correctly. If they really observed the Sabbath, they would keep all the rules that the Jews did. I do not know of ANY Christian group that accurately observes the Sabbath, including the Seventh Day Adventists. If you do not observe the Sabbath according to ALL the Old Testament rules, then you are breaking it.
