“Remember the Sabbath day to keep it Holy.

 

Six days shall you labor, and do all your work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yahweh your Elohim: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is with your gates:…” (Ex. 20:8-10)

FEAST OF SHOUTINGS (TRUMPETS): 7th NEW MOON
(Sept. 20, 2017)
(Annual Holy Day)

 

“Blow at New Moon a Shofar…” (Psa. 81:3)

 

“In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets [shofars], an Holy Convocation. You shall do no servile work…” (Lev. 23:24-25)

 

“Let no man therefore judge you …in respect of an Holy Day, or of the New Moon…which are [not “were”] a shadow of things to come…” (Col. 2:16-17)

 

“As many as have sinned in the Law shall be judged by the Law…For not the hearers of the Law are just before Yahweh, but the doers of the Law shall be justified.” (Rom. 2:12)

 

“And the seventh angel sounded [a shofar: Rev. 8:2]; and there were great voices in heaven, saying,

 

The kingdoms of this world are become the Kingdoms of Yahweh and His Messiah, and He shall reign forever and forever.” (Rev. 11:15; Yahweh: “Lord”; Messiah: “Christ”; KJV)

SABBATH THOUGHTS: WHAT WILL HAPPEN SEPTEMBER 23, 2017?

 

Do the following verses from Matt. 24 apply to that date….or does that date foretell another event of great significance?

 

“For just as the lightening comes from the east, and flashes even to the west, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be.”

 

“…and the powers of the heavens will be shaken, and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky…” (Matt. 24:27, 29-30)

 

Across the internet multiple YouTube videos are predicting the second coming of the Messiah or some ominous events will take place on September 23, 2017.

 

They are basing their predictions on the following:

 

“And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” (Rev. 12:1)

 

Their interpretation of this verse goes something like this:

 

(1). The woman represents the constellation Virgo- one of the twelve signs of the Zodiac used in astrology to predict personal traits and the future for persons born with this sign (August 23 to September 22).

 

(2). “…clothed with the sun..” is the sun entering Virgo Sept. 23, 2017.

 

(3). “…the moon under her feet…” is the New Moon crescent at the feet of Virgo Sept. 23, 2017.

 

(4). “…a crown of twelve stars…” is 9 stars of the constellation Leo which lies above Virgo’s head…PLUS the planets Mercury, Mars, and Venus which align just above Virgo’s head on Sept. 23, 2017.

 

(5). Also, the planet Jupiter enters Virgo Sept. 23, 2017, and stays 9 months (reference to Rev. 12:5’s record of the birth of a male baby.)

 

(6). September 23, 2017 is the Feast of Trumpets.

 

Those proclaiming this date as significant always leave themselves an out…saying something MAY or MAY NOT happen then.

 

WE ARE SAYING ALL THESE ARE PRIVATE INTERPRETATIONS OF REV. 12.1,5, and have no Scriptural grounds whatever! Therefore, we do NOT expect this date to have any special significance! The second coming of Yahshua, the Messiah, will not occur on September 23, 2017.

 

AND the Feast of (Shoutings) Trumpets is not September 23, 2017, but September 20 in some locations and September 21 in Jerusalem….

 

The apostle Peter said, “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation.” (2 Pet. 1:20). We, ICY, believe Peter’s statement.

 

WATCH FOR THE NEXT ISSUE OF “INSIGHT” MAGAZINE (www.icyahweh.org) which contains specific information on REV. 12:1,5 identifying the woman and the stars in her crown…FROM THE BIBLE…not a private interpretation! (This information was presented in a power point at the 2015 Feast of Tabernacles.)

SABBATH THOUGHTS

 

“And Yahweh spoke…saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an
holy convocation.

 

You shall do no servile work…” (Lev. 23:24-25)

 

“And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing
the trumpets…” (Num 29:1)

 

“I am Yahweh your Elohim; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them;

 

And hallow my Sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that you may know that I am Yahweh your Elohim.” (Ezk. 20:19-20)

SABBATHS THOUGHTS: HELPING….AND HURTING…AND HOPING

 

“For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope…” (Eccl. 9:4)

 

“Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to have pity…” (Psa. 69:20)

 

“For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come
nigh unto thee.” (Psa. 32:6)

SABBATH THOUGHTS: BABYLON IS RISING!

 

“The Second Coming of Babylon”: Read this book first published 27 years ago!

 

A World Capital, a great city-called a “woman” in prophecy, is about to make a meteoric rise to prominence and dominance on the world scene!

 

What is the name of this awakening giant, this center of opulence and world power? Where is it located?

 

This book reveals the clear, definite Biblical answers to these questions. No guessing. No speculation.

 

Too, this “woman” rides a 10-horned beast. Who are these “ten horns” of prophecy (Rev. 17:12, 14, 16)?

 

Read the actual NAMES of the ten-horns of prophecy unveiled right from your Bible.

 

Learn when-month and year-the woman will likely be destroyed.

 

“The Second Coming of Babylon,” is an urgent, stunning message for this end-time generation about, “…things which must shortly come to pass…” (Rev. 1:2).

 

Watch: “The Iraqi Dinar and Modern Babylon” on YouTube to see evidence of the prophecies in this book coming alive!

SIXTH NEW MOON OF THE YEAR: A SPECIAL ONE THIS TIME

 

Yesterday, August 21, 2017, the US had its most dramatic eclipse-covering the most states-since 1918 as a total eclipse swept across the face of America from coast-to-coast!

 

From our location, Pocahontas, AR, I made several photos as the eclipse progressed (see attachments). We were not in the path where a total eclipse could be seen, but our location experienced 95.7% maximum coverage.

 

The Biblical first day of the month for the US, however, is today, August 22, 2017 as the day moves around the globe.

 

Following on the cusp of a dramatic TOTAL ECLIPSE sets this sixth month apart from most!

 

The New Moons are important sentients in the heavens throughout the year, and are definitely shadows of things to come (Col. 2:16-17).

 

A reference in Matt. 24:29-30 strongly hints Yahshua will return following closely after what apparently is the description of a total solar eclipse. Read this remarkable account!

 

This sixth New Moon also tells us the Feast of Tabernacles is a month and a half away; just six weeks. I hope everyone has finalized or is finalizing plans to attend this important festival.

 

As chaos, “a therapy culture” of this generation, and rebellion against authority accelerate, so are end time prophecies coming to light as never before!

 

With this it becomes increasingly important that we maintain our focus in staying the course in keeping Yahweh’s planned Holy Days.

 

The New Moons are also one of those important times we must not overlook or devalue!

SABBATH THOUGHTS: TITHING…..ON MONEY? SURPRISING FACT!
THE BIBLE NOWHERE TEACHES TITHING ON MONEY….not once.
HERE ARE THE LAWS OF TITHING:

 

“And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree is holy unto Yahweh.” (Lev. 27:30)

 

“And the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even whatsoever passes under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto Yahweh.” (Lev. 27:32)

 

These verses do not say these tithes on produce and animals can be exchanged for money and then ten percent of the money given. That would be adding to the Law (Deut. 12:32).

 

Now. Sometimes the word translated “increase” in the King James version is used to mean anything beyond produce or animals such as your paycheck, or monetary profit, by quoting:

 

“Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of your seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.” (Deut. 14:22)

 

“…thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year…” (Deut. 14:28)

 

Or perhaps: “”When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase….” (Deut. 26:12)

 

The word “increase” in the KJV should be translated “produce, crop” (New World translation); “yield, produce, fruit” (Revised Standard Version); “produce, crop” (Moffatt translation)

 

Usually a favorite verse used to try to support tithing on money is:

 

“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse,…and prove me now herewith,….if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” (Mal. 3:10)

 

Money is mentioned numerous times in Scripture, but not once is any command given to tithe on it.

 

READ OUR BOOK: “BIBLICAL TITHING IS NOT ON MONEY” and YOU BE THE JUDGE. What does the Bible really say about tithing?

SABBATH THOUGHTS:  THEY ADMIT THE SABBATH IS STILL BINDING.
WHY DO THEY NOT OBSERVE IT?

 

“The Sabbath instituted in the beginning, and confirmed by Moses and the prophets, has never been abrogated…”  [“Bishop’s Pastoral” (Methodist Episcopal)]

 

NEW TESTAMENT:

 

“…and, as his custom was, he [Yahshua] went into the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up for to read.” (Lk. 4:16).

 

“…and…on the Sabbath day he [Yahshua] entered into the synagogue, and taught.”  (Mk. 1:21)

 

“And he [Yahshua] was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.”  (Lk. 13:10)

 

“And he [Paul] reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.”  (Acts 18:4)

SABBATH THOUGHTS:   TIME AND PURPOSE

 

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

 

“….a time to heal;…time to break down, and time to build up;

“A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance…” (Eccl. 3:1, 3-4)

 

“A merry heart does good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” (Prv. 17:22)

 

“Keep your heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” (Prov. 4:23)

 

“The Name of Yahweh is a strong tower: the righteous run into it and is safe.” (Prv. 18:10)

SABBATH THOUGHTS: BELIEVE

 

“And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.” (Matt. 21:22)

 

“…and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says.

 

Therefore I say to you, What things soever you desire, when you pray believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.” (Mark 11:23-24)

 

“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.” (Shakespeare)
