IF PROBLEMS ARE EXPERIENCED IN OPENING THE CONTENTS OF THIS POST, PLEASE INFORM ME!

Under the Mosaic Law the Sabbath was holy, but Jesus fulfilled that Law. There is much speculation about the Sabbath, as this was one of the main accusations that Jesus was charged with and that was used as an excuse to murder him.

There are Scriptures in the Bible that stipulate that certain duties be carried out on Sabbath days. It is my opinion that the stipulated duties were given just as a reminder that our Heavenly Father IS WITH US ALL THE TIME AND WANTS TO BE WITH US ALL THE TIME AND WE MUST ALWAYS BE AWARE OF HIS PRESENCE.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL POSTS WILL BE PRECEDED BY THE IMPORTANT WORDS BELOW!

NOT ONLY WILL THE TRULY “WICKED” PEOPLE BE ETERNALLY DESTROYED BUT ALSO ALL THAT ARE UNACCEPTABLE TO OUR CREATOR JEHOVAH GOD! THE ONUS IS ON EACH AND EVERY PERSON TO ENSURE THAT THEY AND THEIR MINOR CHILDREN ARE ALL ACCEPTABLE! MILLIONS OF “NICE” PEOPLE WERE ALSO ALL DESTROYED IN THE FLOOD OF NOAH’S DAY! REMEMBER . . . JUST GOING TO CHURCH DOES NOT MAKE ONE A CHRISTIAN ANY MORE THAN SITTING IN A GARAGE MAKES ONE A MOTORCAR, AND LIFE WITHOUT PERSEVERING IN DOING JEHOVAH GOD’S EXPLICIT WILL TO THE BEST OF ONE’S ABILITY IS LIKE AN UNSHARPENED PENCIL . . . IT HAS NO POINT!

2 CORINTHIANS 13:5 & 6

5 KEEP TESTING WHETHER YOU ARE IN THE FAITH, KEEP PROVING WHAT YOU YOURSELVES ARE. OR DO YOU NOT RECOGNISE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS IN UNION WITH YOU? UNLESS YOU ARE DISAPPROVED! 6 I TRULY HOPE THAT YOU WILL COME TO KNOW WE ARE NOT DISAPPROVED. (The onus is on each and every person to frequently ensure that they are endeavouring to persevere in doing Jehovah God’s EXPLICIT will to the best of their ability! They must ENSURE that they are in Jehovah God’s ONE and ONLY TRUE FAITH!)

SABBATH

 If we had parents and even grandparents that were of the most loving persons in our lives, and they were just as important to us as our children, it would be considered wonderful to have them over for lunch every Sunday.

During the week we would in discussions with our friends speak about how we look forward to their presence and the pleasurable time and lunch that we share with them. That would then be an indication that they were in our thoughts, not only on the Sundays, but throughout the week as well. Sundays would be the highlight of the week!

The arrangements and purchasing of the food and other necessities, and possibly much of the preparation, would also occur in the week. What then only would appear to be a get together to enjoy a meal on Sunday is actually much more than that! The intermittent times during the week would also have to be taken into account.

I am sure that this is how our Heavenly Father would like to have us feel about Him. His people in the past also had to ensure that all the preparations were in place by Sunday. They most probably realised that Jehovah God was there with them while they enjoyed the meal, peace and tranquillity of the Sunday.

Jehovah God, as the Creator of humans, knows how people think and react.

The expression: “Out of sight, out of mind” is a very bad failing of the human race. I have a sister that is ten years older than I am, and at her age of eighty I estimate that I have seen and spoken to her for less than half of a percentage of our lives.

If she had to die, would I really miss her? I hardly mention or think of my brother that was three years younger than me, and I THINK that he died about five years ago. When we were still children we were very close! Through the years we went our separate ways.

THIS IS WHAT I THINK HAS HAPPENED BETWEEN JEHOVAH GOD AND MOST OF MANKIND: MANKIND HAVE GONE THEIR SEPARATE WAY!

If I, my wife and children, and my sisters and brothers, and their families and all my in-laws had spent every Sunday having the most pleasurable times around a meal that was so enjoyable as to be considered a feast, would we have been so distant and separated and also fairly callous in accepting their demise so easily if any of them had died?

Would we not have been more loving and aware of each other’s desires and feelings, and what they were doing and where they were going?

With the Sundays enjoyed as Jehovah God has planned for us:

Would drugs, alcohol abuse and other maladies have so easily taken over the lives of any of us or our loved ones? Would single parenting almost be the norm? Would child rapes, murders, abductions and slaying for “muti” or stealing of body parts, etc. been possible if mothers always knew who and where their children were? Would prostitution been so rife? Etc.

I can carry on and on, but I think that I am ensuring that what we humans consider to be irrelevant or not-so-important was not put there by Jehovah God “simply for nothing”!

I think I have conveyed the desire that we should cultivate to WANT to make our Creator and Heavenly Father a VERY REAL part of our lives.

It is known today that people are questioning if the Flood of Noah’s Day had really occurred. The same is being brought into question about Jonah in the fish for three days. I can assume that there are many more similar horrific ideas, statements, questionings and theories that are being introduced by wily and scheming methods to undermine the accurate knowledge of the Bible.

I will quickly just mention a few more horrific accusations against Jehovah God and lies about Him that is being taught as gospel:

The EVOLUTION THEORY: Jehovah God did not create the world. The world exists due to some or other “BIG BANG”!

The HELLFIRE: The Bible states that Jehovah God is going to destroy Satan the Devil so it must be then by His authority and command that someone must keep the HELLFIRES burning so that persons suffer the worst kind of pain into eternity.

The FATALISM DOCTRINE: It is by Jehovah God’s will that everything happens! He has our future planned out exactly for all of us even before we are born. Satan the Devil must simply “LOVE” this doctrine! What he does gets blamed on Jehovah God!

Most of the above totally unacceptable accusations and lies are TOTALLY accepted by billions of people so why would what I write below not be just as easily accepted?

NOW, HYPOTHETICALLY speaking:

If an extremely convincing person informed billions of people that it has been proven that Jehovah God had died about a century ago, I personally think that the majority would accept the information and then just consider the following to be necessary: “WELL WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT, LIFE MUST GO ON!” People are saying it about their loved ones that have died, so why would they not say so if they heard and believed that their Heavenly Father, whom they very seldom think about, had died?

Could or would the above so easily be accepted or even be believed if all those persons had found out the truth about Jehovah God from accurate Bible knowledge? Would they not have realised that the Bible was the epitomising of LOGIC and PRACTICABILITY that gave a TRUE GOAL, PURPOSE and MEANING to our lives? If our Heavenly Father was the Guest of Honour in our homes every Sunday then the “convincing person” would have been asked to immediately leave.

From all the above I have derived that Jehovah God wants us to enjoy His company and that of our loved ones in an extremely relaxed and harmonious way where all our love and attention can be mutually shared among us with Him as the main Guest.

Getting back to the main “false” charges laid against Jesus: Firstly that he had the audacity to call himself the Son of God and secondly that he performed work on Sundays!

Firstly: How is it that Religious Leaders teach that Jesus is Jehovah God Himself when the Jews did not even consider him as being worthy of being Jehovah God’s Son?

AND

Remuneration is paid to the Religious Leaders in the forms of finance, housing, travel, etc. Are their main and normally ONLY “preaching” working days not actually then the Sabbath days?

I think it must be accepted that Jehovah God introduced the Sabbath as a day that should be spent appreciating Him and His loving and undeserved kindness, while simultaneously seeking the best for us as humans in ensuring that we have the time to love and appreciate each other.

Remember:

JEHOVAH GOD DOES NOT NEED US – WE NEED HIM!

Let us have a look at a few Scriptures from the Bible:

Numbers 28:9 & 10

9 “‘However, on the Sabbath day there will be two sound year-old male lambs and two tenth measures of fine flour as a grain offering moistened with oil, together with its drink offering, 10 as a Sabbath burnt offering on its Sabbath, along with the constant burnt offering and its drink offering

Chronicles 9:32

And some of the sons of the Ko′hath•ites, their brothers, were in charge of the layer bread, to prepare it Sabbath by Sabbath.

Matthew 12:5

Or have YOU not read in the Law that on the Sabbaths the priests in the temple treat the Sabbath as not sacred and continue guiltless?

Mark 2:27

So he went on to say to them: “The Sabbath came into existence for the sake of man, and not man for the sake of the Sabbath; (When I was young, and in the earlier years of my marriage, Sundays were days for families to REALLY get together. As Jehovah God is a REAL FAMILY PERSON I think that it was His intention for us humans to get together and enjoy and appreciate each one the other AND His undeserved kindness and also what He should mean to us. Just imagine an earthly person stipulating how we should live. I imagine that with the callous attitude of the average human and his greed, we would have to toil eighteen hours a day for 365 days a year and 366 days every leap year.)

Mark 3:5

And after looking around upon them with indignation, being thoroughly grieved at the insensibility of their hearts, he said to the man: “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored. (The healing was performed on a Sabbath.)

Luke 13:16

Was it not due, then, for this woman who is a daughter of Abraham, and whom Satan held bound, look! eighteen years, to be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?”

John 5:16

So on this account the Jews went persecuting Jesus, because he was doing these things during Sabbath.

John 9:16

Therefore some of the Pharisees began to say: “This is not a man from God, because he does not observe the Sabbath.” Others began to say: “How can a man that is a sinner perform signs of that sort?” So there was a division among them. (Where false religion is concerned there will always be divisions among the members. There can only be harmony when members are harmoniously involved in ONE GOD, JEHOVAH, ONE TRUTH, ONE FAITH AND ONE HOPE!)
