Are The Laws Done Away With?
What About The Sabbath?


One can in truth speak of sabbaths in the plural only as one can speak of many elohims {gods}. "There is no Elohim but one. For though there be that are called Elohim {gods}, whether in heaven or on earth; as there are elohim {gods} many, and masters {lords} many; yet to us there is one Elohim the Father, of whom are all things, and we unto Him; and one Master, Yahshua Moshiach, through whom are all things, and we through Him." 1 Cor. 8: 4-6. So, though there be various "sabbaths," so called, there is but one true Sabbath, the Sabbath of the Master YAH's Sabbath.

The word, "Sabbath" means rest. It is a Hebrew word transferred into the English language. When the Hebrews used the word "Sabbath," it conveyed the same idea to them that the word "rest" does to us. The fourth commandment therefore really says to us: "Remember the rest day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work; but the seventh day is the rest day of the Master [YAHWEH] thy Elohim; in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy man servant, nor thy maid servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; for in six days the Master made heaven and earth, the sea and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day; wherefore the Master [YAH] blessed the rest day and hallowed it."

We must not make the mistake of judging the Master's rest from what men are accustomed to call rest. Elohim is not a man. We should rather learn from Elohim's rest what rest really is. Elohim's rest is not mere physical rest from weariness. This we know from two facts: First, "Elohim is Spirit." John 4:24. Not "a spirit," as though He were one of many; but He is Spirit, as it is rendered in the margin of the Revised Version. Second, "The everlasting Elohim, the Master, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary." Isa. 40: 28. The Master therefore did not rest because He was tired, and His rest is not physical, but spiritual, since He is Spirit. "They that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth." Elohim rested, not because He was weary, but because His work was finished. When work is finished, and is well done, nothing but rest remains. In six days Elohim finished His work, and as He surveyed it, He pronounced it "very good." There was no flaw in it. It was without fault before Him. Therefore since Elohim's work was done and well done at the close of the sixth day, "He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made." He had no sad reflexions, no regrets. His rest was not marred, as what man calls rest so often is, by any such thought as, "tomorrow I must go to work again; nor, "I wish I had done this portion a little differently;" nor, "If I could do that over again, I could make an improvement;" nor, "That last day's work is so bad that I cannot bear to look at it; I was so tired when I got to it that I couldn't half do it." Nothing of the kind. Every portion of the work, even man, was as perfect as it was possible for it to be, and Elohim took pure delight in contemplating the work from which He was resting, because it was complete and perfect. This is the rest which He offers to us. It is not something He imposes on us, but which He in everlasting love and kindness gives to us. Rest is not a task that is laid on one. It is not a burden. They who look upon the Sabbath as a burden, have no idea of what the Sabbath of the Master is. It is rest, perfect, unalloyed rest. Yahshua Moshiach is the One by whom the worlds were made, "for in Him were all things created, in the heavens, and upon the earth," therefore He is the One who offers us this rest. To every soul He cries, "Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matt. 11:28. The rest is found in Him, because in Him the works of Elohim are completed. In Him is the new creation, and if any man be in Him, he is a new creature. On the stake/cross Yahshua cried, "It is finished," thus showing that in His stake/cross we find that perfect rest that comes alone from the finished work of the Master.

This rest is gained by faith. "We which believe do enter into rest." How so?-- Because by faith we have the finished, perfect work of the Master as our own. "This is the work of Elohim, that ye believe on Him whom He hath sent." John 6:29. Believing on Him means receiving Him; and since in Him the works of Elohim are complete, it follows that by believing on Him we find the rest. The rest that Yahshua gives is rest from sin. The heavy laden whom He calls to Him are those who are burdened with the weight of their sins. All men are thus burdened, "for all have sinned." Our best works are utterly worthless. Yahshua will have a people who are "zealous of good works" (Titus 2:14,15); but the good works must be those which Elohim Himself has wrought for us in Yahshua. Only His work is enduring. "His work is honorable and glorious; and His righteousness endureth forever." Ps. 111:3. Therefore, "by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of Elohim; not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Yahshua Moshiach unto good works, which Elohim hath before prepared that we should walk in them." Eph. 2:8-10. It is "not by works done in righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit/Ghost, which He poured out upon us richly, through Yahshua Moshiach our Saviour." Titus 3:5,6. It is by the works of Elohim, therefore, that we are saved, and not by our own. Good works there are in abundance, and they are for us too, but through no work of our own, solely through the perfect work of Elohim in Yahshua Moshiach. If the works were our own, then the rest would be our own; but Elohim gives us His rest, not ours, because only His works can yield perfect rest. "He hath made His wonderful works to be remembered." (Ps. 111:4), or, literally, "He hath made a memorial for His wondrous works." That memorial is the seventh day, the day on which He has rested from all His works. That day He has blessed and sanctified, made holy. Its holiness has never departed from it, for "whatsoever Elohim doeth, it shall be forever." No matter what man does, nor how man regards the day, its holiness remains. "There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of Elohim;" and the seventh day, which Elohim forever declares to be His rest, is that by which He makes known to us the perfection of His rest, because it calls us to contemplate a finished and perfect new creation. It reveals to us the everlasting Elohim, the unwearied, almighty Creator, who has wrought and laid up great goodness for them that trust in Him before the sons of men. Ps. 31:19. It reminds us that we are "complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power." It tells us that, although we have sinned, and brought the curse on Elohim's perfect creation, the Stake/cross of Moshiach, which bears the curse, restores and perpetuates the perfect work of Elohim, so that through it we may stand without fault before the throne of Elohim, just as when man was first made. "Thanks be unto Elohim for His unspeakable gift."

THE JEWISH SABBATH There is such a thing as "the Jewish sabbath," or the sabbath of the Jews, but it is so far a different thing from the Sabbath of the Lord. Many people imagine that if one observes the seventh day, he is keeping the Jewish sabbath; but that does not at all follow. No one keeps the Jewish sabbath if he keeps the Sabbath "according to the commandment." There is the same difference between the Jewish sabbath and the Sabbath of the Master that there is between a man and Master. Let us explain: "The seventh day is the Sabbath of the Master [YAHWEH];" but we have seen that the Master's rest is spiritual rest, which the seventh day commemorates. A man may cease from physical toil on the seventh day of the week, and not keep the Sabbath of the Master. If a man stops work on Friday evening at sunset, and abstains from all labor until the next day at sunset, merely as a form of worship, and in order that he may be physically better able to go at his work again, or with the thought that he is thereby discharging a duty, and gaining the favor of Elohim, that is not keeping the Sabbath of the Master. To keep the Sabbath of the Master is to delight in the Master. Those who do not delight themselves in the Master, do not keep His Sabbath, no matter when they abstain from labor. It is absolutely impossible for one who is not a Christian to keep the Master's Sabbath; for, as we have seen, Elohim's rest comes only from His perfect work, which is found only in Yahshua. "We which believe do enter into rest." Therefore no Jew, so called, as distinguished from a believer in the Moshiach, keeps the Sabbath of the Master, even though he apparently rests on the seventh day of the week. His rest is his own rest, and not the rest of the Master. Do you see the difference? The Jewish sabbath falls on the same day of the week as the Sabbath of the Masters, but it is not by any means the same thing. It represents only the man himself, and his own work. Instead of being the sign of justification by faith in the work of the Master, it is the sign of self-righteousness, as indicated by the question which the Jews asked of Yahshua, "What shall we do, that we might work the works of Elohim?" They counted their own works equal to Elohim's works. Their obedience was not the obedience of faith, but only of form. From such a Sabbath may the Master deliver us. It is far from it that we are delivered in the Sabbath of the Master, for we are saved from our own works, and given the perfect works of the Master. "The seventh day is the Sabbath of the Master," but let us beware of making it a mere caricature of rest. Let us take it for what it is: the rest of the Master.

THE PAPAL SABBATH This is something entirely different from the sabbath of the Jews, and infinitely different from the Sabbath of the Master. The Sabbath of the Master is the acceptance of Elohim's own works, and rest in them alone, allowing Him to work both to will and do of His good pleasure; the Jewish sabbath represents the vain attempt of zealous and self-confident men to do the works which Elohim Himself does, and which Elohim alone can do; but the pope's sabbath signifies the substitution of man's work for Elohim's work, as being not only as good, but even better. It dispenses with even the form of the commandment of the Master. Let us see how this is. The Master's Sabbath has been sufficiently dwelt on for the present. We know what it is. We have seen that the Jews' sabbath is the observing of the form of the Master's Sabbath, without the substance, which can come only by faith. It falls on the same day, but it is man's sabbath, not the Master's. The papal sabbath has nothing in common with the Sabbath of the Master, not even in form, but utterly repudiates it. Thus a Roman Catholic book, entitled "A Sure Way to Find Out the True Religion." says, "The keeping holy Sunday is a thing abso-lutely necessary to salvation; and yet this is nowhere put down in the Bible; on the contrary, the Bible says, 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy' (Ex. 20:8), which is Saturday, and not Sunday; therefore the Bible does not contain all things necessary to salvation." This is only one out of many similar citations that might be given, but is sufficient to show that in the observance of Sunday the Catholic Church deliber-ately repudiates the Word of the Elohim, and sets itself above it. It has placed its sabbath on an entirely different day from the Sabbath of the Master [YAHWEH],-- a day which even Elohim Himself could not possibly have made His Sabbath, since on it He began His work,-- in order to emphasize its claims to be above God. It would teach men to obey the church rather than Elohim. Notice that the citation speaks about the necessity of "keeping holy the Sunday." But Elohiim has not made the Sunday holy. In fact, the Bible knows nothing about such a day. It does know the first day of the week, which it calls a working day, but the Sunday, a day composed of parts of two days, was made in Rome. The only day that Elohim has ever spoken of as holy is the seventh day of the week. That day He Himself has made holy, and all He asks of us is to keep it holy. But since Elohim has not made the Sunday holy, it follows that if man is to keep it holy, a man himself must make it holy. All the sacredness in the world that Sunday has is that which man gives to it. The Sunday sabbath, therefore, stands as the sign of man's pretended power to make things holy. For if man can make one thing holy, it is evident that he can make anything holy. If man can make and keep a day holy, then he can make and keep himself holy. The papal sabbath is thus the sign of the pope's claims to take the place of the Master [YAHWEH] as the sanctifier of sinners. While the seventh day is the sign of Elohim's power to save by His own works, the Sunday is the sign of man's assumed power to save himself by his own works, entirely apart from and in spite of the Master. It repudiates the Master in repudiating His Word. Take notice that this is said of the Papal Sunday, and not of all those who regard it as a holy day. There are thousands who are keeping the papal day, honestly supposing it to be the Sabbath of the Master. Such, of course, believe in justification by faith, although they unwittingly observe the sign of justification by works. It is for the benefit of such that this article is written, that they may be wholly consistent in their profession of faith. We are dealing with facts, regardless of how men may stand related to them; and the facts are that the Master's Sabbath is justification by faith; the papal sabbath means justification by works, and that man's own works. On which side will you stand?

Rome’s Challenge

Paul went back to Jerusalem and privately told the leaders of the church that he had been preaching to the Gentiles. He then begins to tell us that Titus, a Greek, was with him and that the leaders had no problem with him being uncircumcised, but others whom he called false brethern, wanted to bring him into bondage, they wanted Titus to be circumcised.Paul goes on to say that they wanted Titus to be circumcised. Paul goes on to say that they did not yield to these false brethern. Then he tell us of when Peter came to Antioch, Peter and some of the others, withdrew to themselves and away from the Gentiles, He says that Peter was afraid of the circumcision and that Barnabas also withdrew from the uncircumcised. Paul confronted Peter and asked him why he compelled the Gentiles to Judaize and goes on to say that man is not justified through the law, but through faith, in Yahusha. At this point Paul begins to confront the situation in Galatia: O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth before whose eyes Yahusha Messiah hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith? {verse 3 says are you so foolish? Having begun in the spirit, do you now perfect yourself in the flesh?.. Gal.3:1-3 The beginning of his letter he indicates the reason for writing the letter, the churches in Galatia were advocating circumcision as a beginning for salvation. Inheritance cannot be earned by keeping the law, Inheritance is through faith in the Messiah who redeemed us from the curse of the law{death}. The law, along with the death penalty for disobedience, applied to the Gentile Galatians, Messiah did not redeem them from the law, but from the curse{the death penalty required for disobedience.}

Through His shed blood, He is now the advocate of believers before the Father. If believers repent and confess their sin.{Transgression of the law},He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us form all unrighteousness. Repentant believers are redeemed from the curse of the law{death},and instead, are given everlasting life.

Paul says the following in Galatians 4:8, Howbeit then when ye knew not Elohim, *ye did service unto them which by nature are No elohim*, "They worshiped false elohim, but now after that ye have known Elohim or rather are known of Elohim, how turn ye again to weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye disire again to be in bondage? Ye observe days, months, and times, and years, I am afraid of you, least I have bestowed upon you labor in vain.

Remember history reveals that false worship systems dating back to Babylon held celebrations in honor of various gods and goddesses, there was a festival of the winter solstice {Christmas}, the birthday of the sun god and solemn fast of forty days in honor of the sun{lent},-celebration of Astarte{Easter},and many others to numerous to name. Paul refers to false worship, then he talks about the Galatians turning again to bondage, and then he speaks of observances, He said he was afraid of them why? because they wanted to keep the Sabbath! We know from the book of Acts that when Paul was in Jerusalem he was among Jewish believers and that they were all zealous of the law, Was he afraid of them? In ch.5, Paul is still talking about circumcision:"Behold, I Paul say unto you that if ye be circumcised, Messiah shall profit you nothing, :Again, at the end of the letter he refers to circumcision, "As many as desire to make a fair show in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised: only least they should suffer persecution for the cross/stake of Messiah, for neither they themselves who are circumcised keepest the law, but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh, but Elohim forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Master Yahshua Messiah, for whom the world crucified unto me, and I unto the world, For in Yahshua Messiah neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. Paul talks of circumcision all through out his letter, from the first , the middle, to the last. The main topic of the letter to the Galatians is circumcision, which has absolutely nothing to do with the moral Law of Elohim, {The 10 Commandments}.

Paul told the Galatians that salvation is not through the perfection of the flesh, {circumcision}, but by faith in the Messiah, A careful examination of the scripture reveals that there is no contradiction between what Paul said and when, Yahusha said: "Till heaven and earth pass, not one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law.."The 10 Commandments:" and this includes the 4th Commandment, and the weekly Sabbath and the Annual Sabbaths. Which this world and it's preachers hates. 

What is it that defines Sin? What are we to repent of? 

If the 10 Commandment's are done away with, {which you hear preached from behind the pulpit and we are told they were nailed to the cross} then there is no sin!
The Ten Commandments and the Ceremonial law "with Chart provided" Notice the difference between the two

If there is no sin, what are we to repent of?

There only remains {1} answer!

Sense the 10 Commandments are done away with, then it is man's tradition that defines sin, THUS, no need for Elohim for man has declared himself above His Creator.

People do not even know what they are to repent from!

They have no Idea what defines sin!

These people are not going to repent, they are listening to the lying preachers in the pulpits every Sunday morning, saying Yahuah's Commandments are nailed to the cross, they are done away with, NO they are NOT, It is the death penalty for breaking Yahuah's Commandments is what is nailed to the cross!

How does the Bible define Sin? 1 John 3:4 says that, Whoever sins is guilty of breaking Yahuah's law, because sin is a breaking of the law.
So what defines Sin? Yahuah's Royal Law {His 10 Commandments} tells us what defines sin.
It does not matter how much we do not want to see this Sabbath truth because truth is still truth and fact is fact

There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men. Ecclesiastes 6:1

Elohim has revealed to man by His word, as well as His condemnation of those who would tamper with it.

Yahuah has informed us of His view of His word by giving us three grave warnings to those who would corrupt the Scriptures. Yahuah warned against adding to His Word:

"Every word of Yahweh is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." (Proverbs 30:5-6)

He also warned that they were not to subtract from His word. "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of Yahuah your Elohim which I command you." (Deuteronomy 4:2)

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, Elohim shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, Yahuah shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." (Rev. 22:18-19)

Yahuah promised to severely punish anyone who adds to His word. Worse, He promised to expunge those who would take away from His words, from the book of life! In this light, should we not highly value the Holy word of the living Elohim your Yahuah?

Not only does the following apply to the disobedience to Yahuah, it also shows they followed after a lie, even a false doctrine, which promoted the idea of the immortality of the soul since Satan lied to Eve and told her that she would "not surely die". and not only does it deal with a physical, it deals with the Spiritual, Since the GREAT LIE was 1st told to Adam and Eve, the cornerstone of Satan's Lie is that "all human beings are born with immortal souls."
Genesis 3:1-13
3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which YHWH Elohim had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath Elohim said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
3:5 For Elohim doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be like Elohim, knowing good and evil.
3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
3:8 And they heard the voice of YHWH Elohim walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of YHWH Elohim amongst the trees of the garden. 3:9 And YHWH Elohim called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
3:11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
3:12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
3:13 And YHWH Elohim said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

What is the meaning of the "spirit of the Law," vs. the "letter of the Law"?

In Matthew 5:20-44, Messiah showed that obeying the letter of the Law is a matter of physical action, whereas obeying the spirit of the Law requires more than just outward actions"it also involves an attitude of the mind"referred to by the Apostle Paul as circumcision of the heart (Rom. 2:28-29).

For example, Messiah showed that to merely refrain from adultery is obedience to the letter of the Law, but to obey both the spirit and letter of the Law, one must also exercise self-control (temperance"Gal. 5:23), and not even lust after someone (committing adultery in his heart).

Another example (not mentioned by Messiah in Matt. 5) is in the keeping of the Sabbath Day. To merely remember the Sabbath, to keep it holy (Ex. 20:8), not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together (Heb. 10:25), is in obedience to the letter of the Law. But to also rejoice in the Sabbath and call it a delight (Isa. 58:13) is keeping the spirit of the Law, as Yahuah intends. This principle applies to all of Yahuah's laws.

The religious world has promoted the idea of the immortality of the soul since Satan lied to Eve and told her that she would "not surely die". From that point forward, the false religion of the world, including modern-day Christianity have brought into this colossal lie since Satan told Eve in Genesis 3:4 that she would not die. This was done, in spite of the fact that Elohim had already warned Adam and Eve that, if they ate of the tree of knowledge, they would surely die.{Gen.2:17},"The preachers and teachers of the world's religions constantly "Preach to their followers, that at birth, we are given an "immortal soul" and at death, that soul either goes to heaven where it lives eternally with God or to hell where it is tortured eternally by Satan. The concept of human beings possessing an immortal soul is "NOWHERE" to be found in the Bible, in fact the Bible teaches just the opposite, as we read in Ezekiel 18:4,..the soul that sinneth, it shall die. Memorize this verse, How did this lie creep into Christianity when the Bible teaches the opposite?

Tortured Forever : Do you know the Christian concept of hell came straight out of Milton's "Paradise Lost," satire on religion. The idea of the souls of human beings being tortured and living forever in an ever burning hell, believe it or not, DOES NOT COME FROM THE BIBLE!! It finds it's origins in Milton's Paradise Lost and Dante's Inferno.

"Yea, hath YHWH said. . ." became the very first bad seed (lie) that began the deception of mankind and has continued since the garden of Eden.
