HOLINESS TO THE LORD
HOLINESS TO HIS COVENANT PEOPLE
HOLINESS TO HIS EARTH
“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found,
call ye upon him while he is near:
“For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven,
and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth,
and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower,
and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:
it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please,
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
“For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD,
and hath perceived and heard his word?
who hath marked his word, and heard it?”
“I will not give my glory unto another.
Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called;
I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.”
ONLY to the CREATOR, OUR MAKER, belongs
the GLORY, the PRAISE, and the MAJESTY!
HE will not give HIS GLORY to another!
Surely we know that GOD’s WALK of Life and HIS Ordained Holy Days
trump all man-made religions and all their imagined holidays!
In that the CREATOR GOD founded the Heavens and the Earth, and “It was GOOD”, we have to determine that it was not only “GOOD” but “Holy” as is the CREATOR that made them. It is ludicrous to believe that in the BEGINNING the GOD of this Universe Created an Earth with imperfections. In that the CREATOR is a Righteous and GOOD GOD, HE of course wants the people HE Created to also be of Righteousness.
“LET THEM PRAISE THE NAME OF THE LORD: FOR HE COMMANDED, AND THEY WERE CREATED.
“Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth: Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children: Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.” Psalm 148:5,11 - 13
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And GOD BLESSED THEM, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth…” Genesis 1:26 - 28
When the CREATOR said that HE “Created man in HIS Own IMAGE”, there can only be one interpretation for HIS WORDS. GOD Created mankind in HIS “IMAGE of Righteousness”. It certainly cannot mean that HE Created mankind to be Gods like HIMSELF. There is no man capable of fulfilling the ACTS of the CREATOR GOD, therefore; perish the thought that any man can be compared to the ALMIGHTY GOD. And it is imperative that we know and understand what OUR GOD means by “Righteousness” for this is what precludes wickedness and enables us to walk with OUR GOD, the GOD of Israel.
“Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath STATUTES AND JUDGMENTS SO RIGHTEOUS AS ALL THIS LAW, which I set before you this day? Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;” Deuteronomy 4:5 – 9
“Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.” Deuteronomy 5:32,33
“It shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.” Deuteronomy 6:25
“THE STATUTES, AND THE ORDINANCES, AND THE LAW, AND THE COMMANDMENT, WHICH HE WROTE FOR YOU, YE SHALL OBSERVE TO DO FOR EVERMORE; and ye shall not fear other gods. And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods. But the LORD your God ye shall fear; and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies.” II Kings 17:37 – 39
Do remember that when GOD of Israel exiled our forefathers from the Land of Israel, HE gave HIS Earth over to the heathens (Lev. 26:33). Then HE returned to HIS Place in the Heavens (Hosea 5:15), for HE will not be joined with the wicked and will have no respect their congregations. The CREATOR’s WORD has always been to obey HIS WAYS of Righteousness.
GOD’s WEEKLY, MONTHLY, AND SEASONAL HOLY DAYS ARE GIVEN TO US TO SUSTAIN KNOWLEDGE OF HIM IN OUR HEARTS AND THROUGHOUT HIS EARTH
The Children of Israel would be nomads or surfs if it weren’t for the CREATOR GOD of Israel. HE Chose us and made an Everlasting Covenant with us, gave us the Land of Milk and Honey, made us the wealthiest POWER in the Middle East, and protected us and kept us out of harm’s way. HE ALONE has proven to be the ONE True and Living GOD that deserves ALL our honor and accolades forever. Thanksgiving is due to HIM for all HIS BLESSINGS that HE ALONE bestowed upon us when we inhabited our own Land. We should be stoked to worship HIM as HE has required of us and to observe the Holy Days that HE designated for us to keep throughout the year. The CREATOR GOD kept all HIS PROMISES. We are the ones who failed HIM and who rejected HIS WAYS that HE Commanded of us to live and do “forever” and “for as long as we live on HIS Earth”.
Only when we follow the WAYS of GOD will we attain HIS Righteousness and please HIM in the process. Nevertheless, that still is not all we must do as GOD’s Covenant People. We must also EXALT HIM and OBSERVE HIS Ordained Holy Days that MEMORIALIZE HIM, keep HIS Book of the Law, and speak of ALL HIS WONDROUS WORKS. For all these reasons HE alone is GOD, and there is NONE ELSE.
“Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people. Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works. GLORY YE IN HIS HOLY NAME: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. Seek the LORD and his strength, SEEK HIS FACE CONTINUALLY. Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; O YE SEED OF ISRAEL HIS SERVANT, YE CHILDREN OF JACOB, HIS CHOSEN ONES. HE IS THE LORD OUR GOD; his judgments are in all the earth. BE YE MINDFUL ALWAYS OF HIS COVENANT; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac; And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,” I Chronicles 16:8 – 17
THE FEASTS OF THE LORD ARE ALL LISTED IN LEVITICUS 23RD CHAPTER
GOD’S WEEKLY SEVENTH DAY SABBATH IS THE ANNIVERSARY OF CREATION:
“The LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts. Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.” Leviticus 23:1 - 4
“The LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.” Exodus 31:12 – 17
THE MONTHLY NEW MOON CRESCENT OBSERVANCES INDICATE EACH NEW MONTH
“Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God.” Numbers 10:10
“Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob. Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery. Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day. For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.
“Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
“There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god. I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.” Psalm 81:1 – 4,8 - 10
THE CREATOR GOD ALSO COMMANDS OTHER HOLY DAYS FOR US TO OBSERVE IN THANKSGIVING TO HIM AND WORSHIP OF HIM EVEN DURING THE FALL SEASON OF EACH YEAR
THE MEMORIAL OF BLOWING OF TRUMPETS:
“Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, IN THE SEVENTH MONTH, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, A MEMORIAL OF BLOWING OF TRUMPETS, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.” Leviticus 23:24,25
“In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is A DAY OF BLOWING THE TRUMPETS UNTO YOU.” Numbers 29:1
THE DAY OF ATONEMENT:
The Day of Atonement is a Most Holy Day that GOD of Israel gave us to Atone for Our Sins. On this day we must fast for 24 hours and not eat any food or drink any water. Without saying, we should all be grateful to OUR GOD of Israel for this opportunity to Atone for all the wrongs we committed against HIM this past year.
“The LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.” Leviticus 23:26 - 32
THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES:
“The feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.” Exodus 23:16
“The LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD. On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.” Leviticus 26:33 – 36
“ALSO IN THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE SEVENTH MONTH, WHEN YE HAVE GATHERED IN THE FRUIT OF THE LAND, YE SHALL KEEP A FEAST UNTO THE LORD SEVEN DAYS: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath. And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days. And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month. Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths: That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God. And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the LORD.” Leviticus 23:39 – 44
[There are other observances of GOD of Israel, but they are for the Spring and for the first harvest season of the year that ensues at a later time. They are The MEMORIAL of PASSOVER and The Feast of Weeks – both give PRAISE and GLORY to the CREATOR GOD of Israel.]
OPEN THY MOUTH WIDE AND I WILL FILL IT
“Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah. Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me; There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god. I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.” Psalm 81:7 - 10
Our GOD of Israel will again choose the Seed of King David to reign over HIS Kingdom of Israel, and he will again establish GOD’s Holy NAME and HIS Righteousness in the Earth.
“There shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.” Isaiah 11:1 - 5
“They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for THE EARTH SHALL BE FULL OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD, as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.” Isaiah 11:9,10
“The word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season; Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers. As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me.” Jeremiah 33:19 – 22
THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WILL SHOW FORTH THE PRAISES OF THE CREATOR GOD AND WILL EXALT ONLY HIM FOR EVERMORE
“Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof.” Zechariah 8:3 - 5
“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the LORD of hosts. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built.” Zechariah 8:6 – 9
Few people know that the GOD of Israel is bound to the Children of Israel, and it is HE that made them bound to HIM by HIS Covenant (Genesis 15:1). And HE specifically chose Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and his Twelve Sons, the Nation of Israel, for HIS Covenant People to show forth HIS PRAISE.
“LET THEM PRAISE THE NAME OF THE LORD: FOR HIS NAME ALONE IS EXCELLENT; HIS GLORY IS ABOVE THE EARTH AND HEAVEN. HE ALSO EXALTETH THE HORN OF HIS PEOPLE, THE PRAISE OF ALL HIS SAINTS; EVEN OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, A PEOPLE NEAR UNTO HIM. PRAISE YE THE LORD.” Psalm 148:13,14
“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise. But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.” Isaiah 43:21,22
“I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. PUT ME IN REMEMBRANCE: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.” Isaiah 43:25,26
When we put the CREATOR in remembrance, there is much to consider about HIM, and above all, it should be obedience to ALL HIS Commandments, Laws, Statutes, and Judgments. HE is OUR CREATOR that promises to be with us if we will only make HIM OUR GOD and make HIS Righteousness OUR WAY of Life. And HE will indeed be with us if we comply with HIS COMMANDMENTS all because HE wants HIS Earth, HIS Holy City Jerusalem, HIS Holy Land, and HIS Covenant People, Israel, as well as all Peoples to EXALT HIM, observe HIS Holy Days, and bring HIS Righteous World Order to the fore.
We are indeed Blessed, for of a Truth, it is our RETURN to the GOD of Israel that will bring an end to this wicked White Supremacist World Order and that will ultimately usher in GOD’s Holy Kingdom for the “MEEK” with HIS Servant David at the helm. The Land of Israel has sat patiently awaiting the “Dry Bones” to awake for far too long. Now, Israel, it is our time to act Righteously and watch OUR GOD of Israel ACT in our behalf to Deliver us and re-establish us in our own heritage.
GOD left the Land of Israel as Witness to HIS Everlasting Covenant with the Children of Israel. We must forever be cognizant of the fact that both the Land and the SEED of Jacob bear the name of Israel. Thus, there will be Holiness to the LORD GOD of Israel, Holiness to HIS Covenant People, Israel, and Holiness to HIS Earth. For all Peoples, Nations, and tongues who survive “the Day of the LORD” will give GLORY to the CREATOR GOD, Worship ONLY HIM in HIS Holy Temple, and bow in PRAISE of HIM. And do I ever desire to be numbered among the Righteous Remnant of Israel that will bring the WORD of GOD and HIS TRUTH to fruition throughout HIS Earth.
During this Season of GOD’s Holy Observances, let us beseech HIM to fulfill ALL HIS WORD concerning our return to our heritage in order that the World will come to know that the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob yet lives and will replenish HIS Earth for HIS GOODNESS’ Sake.
“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth:
for I am God, and there is none else.
I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth
in righteousness, and shall not return,
That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength:
even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him
shall be ashamed. In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel
be justified, and shall glory.”
Isaiah 45:22 – 25
“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found,
call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts:
and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him;
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”
