The blessing for the children of Yisre'el
Is it necessary to keep the Sabbath when this is part of the law, which Colossians 2:14 appears to say has been removed, having been nailed to the stake?
It was Yahushua the Messiah, who was nailed to the stake, not the law! Yahushua gave His life to atone for sin, and when a person accepts Yahushua, and repents of breaking Elohim’s Law, it is their sin that is removed. The Law, known as the Torah, remains in place to distinguish between right and wrong.
Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to complete. For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done. Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. Mattithyahu 5:17 – 19.
We were taught that Sunday is the Sabbath. Is this correct?
The answer is found in Debarim/Dueteronomy 5:12–15. This instructs us to work for six days, and to rest on the Sabbath which is the seventh day of the week. Sun–day is the first day of the week, and this rejection of the fourth commandment was agreed by the Roman Catholic Church at the council of Laodicea in 336 C.E. Hence the warning:
“Come out of her My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4.
Which copy of the scriptures should we use?
Please visit www.messianic.co.za from where copies of “The Scriptures” are available. These differ from most other translations by restoring the Names of the Father (Yahuwah) and the Son (Yahushua). Many other versions substitute their Names, with names and titles belonging to gentile (pagan) idols, a violation of the third commandment.
You do not bring the Name of Yahuwah your Elohim to naught, for Yahuwah does not leave him unpunished who brings His Name to naught. (Debarim/Dueteronomy 5:11).
