The Naming of the Days

The Greeks named the days week after the sun, the moon and the five known planets, which were in turn named after the gods Ares, Hermes, Zeus, Aphrodite, and Cronus. The Greeks called the days of the week the Theon hemerai “days of the Gods”. The Romans substituted their equivalent gods for the Greek gods, Mars, Mercury, Jove (Jupiter), Venus, and Saturn. (The two pantheons are very similar.) The Germanic peoples generally substituted roughly similar gods for the Roman gods, Tiu (Twia), Woden, Thor, Freya (Fria), but did not substitute Saturn.

Sunday — Sun’s day

Middle English sone(n)day or sun(nen)day
Old English sunnandæg “day of the sun”

Latin dies lunae “day of the moon”
Ancient Greek hemera selenes “day of the moon”

Tuesday — Tiu’s day

Middle English tiwesday or tewesday

Mercury is the Roman god of commerce, travel, theivery, eloquence and science. He is the messenger of the other gods.

Hermes is the Greek god of commerce, invention, cunning, and theft. He is the messenger and herald of the other gods. He serves as patron of travelers and rogues, and as the conductor of the dead to Hades.

Freo is identical with freo, meaning free. It is from the Germanic frijaz meaning “beloved, belonging to the loved ones, not in bondage, free”.

Freya (Fria) is the Teutonic goddess of love, beauty, and fecundity (prolific procreation). She is identified with the Norse god Freya. She is leader of the Valkyries and one of the Vanir. She is confused in Germany with Frigg.

Did you know that you are at a Crossroads right now? What should you do?

“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls…” (YirmiYahu/Jeremiah 6:16)

crossroads

There are times in one’s life
When light seems like darkness
You tread upon it
Thinking you’re in the dark

There are times in one’s life
When darkness seems like light
You tread upon it
Thinking you’re in the light

There are times in one ‘s life
When light seems like darkness
And darkness seems like light

Then you need to think twice
Because you are at a crossroad
And the decision you take
Might make or mar your life

Adesewa Oyinkansola

Did you know that you are in a time of decision?  Right now, there is space to repent, however, one day there will be no more time to turn.

“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Yahuah is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.”  Joel 3:14-15

 One of the plagues of Egypt was a darkness over the land. It was a “darkness that could be felt.”  I imagine that the day of Yahuah will be like that…all of the light will be withdrawn from the heavenly bodies. At that time, there will only be impending judgment, and no space to repent.

be-born-again
John 3:3 “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

If you are at the “Valley of Decision” right now, what decisions should you be making? One decision, of course, is to enter into the contract offered by Yahuah (God), the New Covenant in the Blood of Yahshuah (Jesus; Yahshuah means “Savior” in Hebrew and is “Jesus'” real name).  We have been offered the opportunity to exchange our life of sin, curse, disease, etc. for Yahshuah’s LIFE, which is eternal life, both in quality of life and length of duration. This life is a free gift, by simply asking for it right now:

Father in Heaven, I receive your gift of eternal life through the blood of your Son when He died on the stake for me, and I give you the reigns of my life to make me what you have purposed me to be before the foundation of the world. Have your way in my life, on your terms, and I dedicate it to your service. Lead me in the path of everlasting life; show me through your Set-Apart Spirit what I am to do from now until I am safe in your arms, in your Kingdom. Amein. 

BORN-AGAIN

He promises to write his law upon your heart, and to remember your sin no more!  You are born again, as John Chapter 3 of the Scriptures speaks about!

GummyBears
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'” Mathew 4:4; Deuteronomy 8:3

However, there are many believers who are already born-again and sitting in churches around the world who are also at a Crossroads. They are content to listen to the “Pulpiteers” week after week preach the same old stale messages.  It is like accepting regurgitated food that someone else has chewed, or feeding upon a constant diet of Gummy Bears! That is certainly not a very healthy diet to sustain life. But most sermons in churches are watered down, because most people will not dress up, come to church, and give their money if they were actually confronted with TRUTH!

The pastors of the Christian Corporations need money to perpetuate and propagate their Ministries (capital “M”, because their Ministry is their idol). They need greater salaries, more staff, larger buildings, and greater “outreach”. christian_mega_churchTruth is counter to their agenda, unless it is soft-peddled truth.  Pastors of the Christian Corporations know that their members would stiffen their necks if they were not careful with their sermons and their words. Instead of leading the sheep, the sheep herd the pastor where they want him to go.

Most believers in the “Christian denominations” are content to live by church programs, projects, and a constant feasting upon Televangelist Superstar conferences to tell them what God is doing in the world. If the pastor says that something is true or untrue, they blindly follow. They do not regularly search the scriptures to confirm whether it is so.  As Yahshua said in Mark 7:8, “For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men…”

BE A BEREAN: "And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
BE A BEREAN: “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

Instead of following after the traditions of men,  we have been given the deposit of the Set-Apart Spirit of Elohim (God) to lead us into all truth and be our Teacher. It is His Spirit that takes the written word of the Scriptures and lifts it off the page, making it come alive in us, being mixed with faith.

The Apostle John said, “But the anointing which you have received of him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, you shall abide in him.” 2 John 2:27

The anointing of His Set Apart Spirit is likened unto oil in the Word, and we are to be as wise virgins who are waiting for their bridegroom with lamp pots full of oil. virgins-oilAny unwise virgin–who must go and seek oil at the last minute– risks missing the Bridegroom (Yahshua) when he comes. In other words, you cannot quickly catch up if you have been walking your own path and have not been following the Set Apart Spirit by hearing and obeying over a period of time. This precious oil does not come via instantaneous, effortless “download”. The only way to have oil in your lamp is to spend time reading the scriptures for yourself, seek truth, knock on the doors, ask and keep asking the Set-Apart Spirit to show you what is on the Father’s heart. You have to have RELATIONSHIP, and truly have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying. Then, you need to obey what He says to do. Hear, Obey. Hear, Obey.

ancient_pathStand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls…” (YirmiYahu/Jeremiah 6:16)

 So, what are you to do?  Dissect the scripture above, and you will see action verbs which tell you what you must do:

Stand. Look. Ask. Ask again. Walk. Find.

Have you asked for the ancient paths?  Have you asked Him where the good way is?  OR, are you just waiting for the latest tingle of goose bumps and affirmation from your denomination’s premier teacher or prophet? Have you done the work required to “hear” from God all by yourself?

The ancient paths are already established, so you need to look back and study history. You need to study the “Old Testament” (Tanach) as well as the “New”. The book of Genesis, for example, is a valuable template. You won’t understand anything in scripture without understanding Genesis.

You need to set aside all your own doctrines that you have collected from men, and look and see what the Scriptures really say. If you have to have a denominational label around your neck to feel affirmed in what you believe, you will never make it in the wilderness journey. If you only feel comfortable in the collective or within the range of the societal norm, you will not make it on the Narrow Path that Leads Unto Life. (Remember, it is the broad road that leads to destruction… many travel upon it.) 

search-scriptures

You will have to learn to READ all over again.  That’s what I said. You will have to learn to READ all over again. You would be surprised at how much scripture you actually “jump over” because you’ve been trained to ignore it. You will need to READ what is there and work with it at face value. That means, sometimes, you will need to ASK Father what it means and then put it on a shelf until you get an answer. He is faithful. After all, He is leading you and you are not leading yourself!

Father is calling out a remnant from among the people. Father always preserves a tenth or tithe for himself. These are devoted things, vessels that are chosen and not common, and are fit for the Master’s use. Reading this now makes you accountable. You are at a Crossroads!   It is dangerous for you to hear what is required and turn back to your old ways and the traditions of men. 

The remnant believers follow the Lamb wherever He goes. They have ears to hear what the Spirit says. They are Repairers of the Breach… the restorers of ancient paths to dwell on:

Repairer-of-The-Breach

Isaiah 58

And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of Yahuah, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

Then shalt thou delight thyself in Yahuah; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of Yahuah hath spoken it.  [Selah.]

You might be wondering, if you are asking me to leave my normal church experience behind, and to follow what is true Truth, what does that look like?  What is it that is true? I can’t understand what I’ll be doing differently if you don’t give me a glimpse of what you say is the proper path.

I will give you a hint what some of the restoration is about, from the book of Daniel when he speaks of this time in history:

“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.”  Daniel 7:25-27

The repairers of the Breach will restore God’s LAW and His CALENDAR.  The Calendar and Law you follow reveals THE DEITY you worship. The final struggle depicted in Daniel 7 is about WORSHIP. There will be great pressure and persecution in the end times to conform to the Romish, Luciferian counterfeit worship, calendar and civil law which is at odds with the Creator’s law and calendar.

As part of the process of returning us to the land from the four corners of the earth where he has scattered us, He will purge the rebels from our midst, and will cull a tithe from the people. He will cause us to be a Sovereign people who are no longer chattel of the Beast System, and no longer follow “Romish law” or a “Romish calendar”. We will follow His calendar which is in the heavenlies, and by which we can calculate the feast days from any place on the earth.

SitOnFence

If your “church” is not working on restoration of the luni-solar calendar which is Father’s calendar in the heavenlies, restoration of scriptural law, the purging of all the pagan feast days, and restoration of Yahuah’s feasts and appointments, then your church is part of the problem and is stagnant and idolatrous.  You cannot serve two masters… and straddle two worlds. You will love one and hate the other.

Please do not sit on the fence!

No Flesh Shall Glory

1996 began the last Jubilee period of 50 years and was also the timing of the release of the House of Israel from judgment for her backsliding.  I had no idea of what was going to take place in the next decades after this when I received this Word, and no knowledge of using Father’s or Messiah’s Hebrew names. I was still in the denominations of the “Church”… which is NOT the same as the ecclesia” summoned or called out assembly.” This word was given to me in 1997:

NO FLESH SHALL GLORY

“Hear the word of the Lord: People of God, this is the hour that I have waited for–the hour when I will perfect that which I have carefully planned and built. Take heed, therefore, not to build in this hour upon a false foundation. It shall fall as it is going up. Yes, I will not delay or hesitate in this hour to cut down the filthy and rotting religious places in your midst which raise themselves up against Me in defiance. They are nothing but decay. They shall crumble instantly before Me, says the Lord. They are nothing.

But before I destroy the great harlot, I will root out unfaithfulness in my people. No longer will my chosen ones stumble–I will heal their backsliding. They shall be mighty in the land and will execute everything I tell them, says the Spirit. I have put them high upon a Rock, they will stand and will bear fruit for Me in this hour. Hear what the Spirit says. Have an ear to hear.” Given October 5,1997. 11:20 a.m.
