Instructions for Life
by D. J. Love, Minister, TSN, SBC
Our ETERNAL FATHER loves us so very much, that He not only gave us Instructions (Commandments and examples) on how to Love Him, and each other, but He, also, gave us instructions in Abundant Living. He told us which meats are the most healthy (clean), and which are least healthy (unclean) to eat (Leviticus 11), and No One knows better than The Creator of the animals that we eat?
Now "Clean" does not mean without sin, and "unclean" does not mean with sin. However, to ignore Yahweh's warnings is sin. Why? Because Yahweh equates Obedience with Love and Faith. When a human being thinks that they know better than Yahweh as to what is or isn't good for themselves, then they become self-centered (self-reliant), and "Self" is Sin! It shows a complete lack of Faith in The Creator as your Guide, and a reliance upon your own wisdom. For those of you who look for loopholes in Yahweh's Laws, Health Ordinances, Commandments, so that you can Justify in your own mind your lack of Obedience, I must tell you that your legalistic attitude is not pleasing to Yahweh! And those who live by "The Letter of The Law" will die by "The Letter of The Law;" and Loopholes are for LEGALISTS.
"Isaiah 66" is a prophecy for the Sabbath Millennial Period when Yahweh, and His Kingdom shall dwell on The Earth. Therefore, I say to you, " If the Sabbaths, New Moons, etc ... don't mean anything to Yahweh anymore ... then Why Will Yahweh want them reestablished with the general populations?
Most people make the common mistake of thinking that the Bible was written as a guide for everybody. Well, . . . . the Bible, The Tanakh, The Apostolic Writings, etc... were not written for everybody. They were only written as Instructions for True Believers. Yahweh's Instructions were not given to Egyptians or Romans, etc .... Yahweh's Instructions on forgiveness of sin, cleanliness, how to love, etc ... were given to His Assembly (A.K.A. Chosen People or True Believers) as a Guide. A Guide born of Love, and for the protection and prosperity of His Chosen Bride (Assembly of Children).
Many uninspired people point to verses like Colossians 2:14-17 , (verses that were written only to Yahweh's obedient "Chosen" people) who were already observing these things. These words were not being spoken to pork eaters, X-mas keepers, Sunrise Service followers, and SUNday worshipers, etc. . . . The following verses are Words of Encouragement to Weekly Sabbath Keeping, New Moon Observing, Annual Sabbath Keeping, and Clean Meat eating Disciples of Messiah Yashua.
What is the BODY of Messiah Yahshua? It is His True Church (His Bride To Be)! The BODY being ONE made up of MANY parts (believers) that are held together by ONE SPIRIT (Holy Pneuma).
* I am NOT telling you to observe these things so that you may obtain salvation. Salvation is through faith in Messiah Yahshua's righteous example. But if you already have The Conditional Promise Of Salvation through "Righteous Faith" in YHWH and His Messiah, then I am saying, "Trust Him To Know What Is Good For You!" "Do Not place your Faith in Yourself or in Earthly Priests, scientist or doctors whose Religion is Science!" For your own sake, do Not be Liberal Minded about this matter.... If In doubt, Don't Do It !
