When we understand that the plan of Salvation of YaHoVaH began way back in the beginning of Creation we will get a higher revelation of our Savior, Y’shua, (Jesus). What do I mean by this? What is it that I am saying?
Well, the very beginning of beginnings is that the Father, YaH, before the foundations of time, killed a lamb which was slain to provide for broken relationship before the relationship physically existed. Then HE spoke to create the Heavens and the Earth and all that is within them…Right? So that is where this teaching starts. I want to show you great things here.
Genesis 1:1-5 (KJV)
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
So, God, (YaH) said, “Let there be Light”. There are so many meanings to the word light that we can really make this a long teaching, and I will someday, but for now let’s just get some basics across here.
John 1:1-5 (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
We see from this description that Jesus was the Word of YaH and was God, he also made all things and nothing that was made got that way without HIM! He did it all. How did that work?
Well, when the Father spoke the words Let there be Light, it is the SALVATION of man…Yeshua. That Hebrew word means salvation and light and life and creation power and resurrection power and, and, and, on it goes! ENLIGHTENMENT. Y’shua came forth at the Father’s word.
There is this one very important thing we must understand, going back to our original premise: The plan of salvation goes back to Creation. (By the way, it only makes sense since Y’shua is the essence of every one of the appointed times and living oracles of YaH, both written and orally communicated).
Let’s keep reading about light in John…John 1:6-14 (KJV)
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That (Y’shua) was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
We see that Light is full of grace and truth (and wisdom). Jesus said he is the truth. Also, He told Martha that He is the Resurrection and the Life. He is the WAY and there is no way to the Father except through HIM.
Genesis 2:1-3 (KJV)
1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Y’shua is always found in the Synagogue on the Shabbat and heals very often on the Shabbat because He is showing that people who honor YaHoVaH have the healing power toward them from their obedience. (He had the fullness of the Godhead bodily but what I am saying is that it is by their obedience to the command to honor the Shabbat that brought forth their healing. He sees they have a need because they are spending time with Him, the Creator on the day that commemorates the days of Creation with keeping the day sanctified unto Him and so the person gets healed to show His pleasure of the communication and their dedication; their obedience.
AND since Y’shua is the Creator He is LORD of the Shabbat! He clearly showed this when he made clay/mud from the dirt of the ground and using his own spittle then applied it to a man’s eye sockets who was born blind and had no eyeballs. They were c r e a t e d by Y’shua the same way he formed man from the dust of the ground…
The Shabbat was given to commemorate the Creator and allow the created being, man, fellowship with Him.
Y’shua is Creator, John 1:1-3, Ephesians 3:9, Colossians 1:15,
The creator came into his creation and became incarnate as the created…colossal! Magnificent! Awesome! He is the fullness of the Godhead, bodily…what a salvation plan! I already shared about John chapter one, let’s move onto the next verses:
Ephesians 3:6-13 (KJV)
6 That the Gentiles should be fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.
8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
The Word of God speaks for itself and yet please take note of verse 9 BECAUSE IT SUMS UP EVERYTHING SO NICELY!!! Verse 6 says that the Nations of the Earth should be fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel…IT IS THE SAME GOOD NEWS AS IT WAS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT! Jesus, (Y’shua) came preaching the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM.
When the people of God in the Old Testament honored the Shabbat, and the Appointed Times they were appropriating the salvation of YaH!
Appropriating the Sabbath and the Appointed Times to remain in Covenant with God were actually IN MESSIAH–because He is the ESSENCE, PROVISION FOR REDEMPTION AND RECONCILIATION AND RETURN TO RIGHTEOUSNESS (His, not our own which is attained by being in Him.)–HE is the fulfillment and completion of them all and they are all about HIM!!!
When we understand the provisions of each Appointed Time and Sabbath, we get a better understanding of how to appropriate the completed works of our Savior!
Now, onto the next verse which further makes the case here: Colossians 1:12-29 (KJV)
12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:
25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;
26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
WOW!!! This is such a huge connecting concept to bring us to our wonderful conclusions, the main one being that, The creator came into his creation and became incarnate as the created. AND that as the Creator, He has commanded us to keep the 7th day Sanctified unto Him in order to differentiate Him from all the other little g gods out there!!!!
One thing you will be seeing more and more in the Sunday worship churches and leaders is that they will lose their focus on Jesus Christ. (Y’shua HaMaschiach) and their focus will be on money, provision, power and position over people, and other things we have seen warnings against in the Word. Additionally, a lack of holiness will prevail and with that the manifestation of acceptance of ungodly lifestyles and the sins associated with compromise.
The reason for this is that disobedience brings forth a spirit of error which has soul ties. It also leads to delusion or believing a lie. If you are coming out of Sunday worship and have discovered the beauty of Shabbat, well you would do well to break off all ungodly soul ties that came from your time in the “Sunday-only” worship churches.
If you are reading this and you are not sure, just lay hands on yourself and ask God to forgive you if you have believed a lie. Ask Him to lead you into all truth. Ask Him to show you the way.
There are going to be great divisions among the people coming up here real soon. (Yes of course there are already many divisions but the main thing will be that Saturday Shabbat Keeping Believers will be persecuted by Sunday Worship Only Followers.
We are going to see clear lines of demarcation. Those who keep the Commandments of God and who bear fruits of repentance, walking in light and truth, and are those who study the Word and live the Gospel. LOVE WILL BE THEIR BANNER.
The Followers will be those who sit and feed endlessly from other’s teachings and do not study the Bible on their own. They will have the fruit of disobedience such as: gossip, fornication, blasphemy, greed, gluttony, and sloth. COMPROMISE WILL BE THEIR BANNER. They will have lying signs and wonders and their ways would, if possible fool the very elect, (those who have the Holy Spirit). (This is the great falling away we read about.)
The spirit of religion will be the main spirit. (and that is the spirit of anti-Christ or “in place of Christ”). This is the separation of the sheep and the goats. Also, the second Fig tree that will not bear fruit…selah.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 (KJV)
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
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.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
PLEASE– PLEASE, PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY HIS NAME…HONOR THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD! THEY ARE NOW WRITTEN IN YOUR HEART!
Revelation 3:19-20 (KJV)
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
This is a letter to the Church! NOT to the lost! If you say we are not under the Law and throw it out…YOU ARE THROWING OUT THE SAVIOR WHO IS THE WORD! (LAW)
