Proof Of Weekly Sunday Worship? Today Is A High Holy Day Sabbath – Pentecost, The Feast of Weeks

By r. a.    Sun., May 20, 2018           Feast of Weeks (Pentecost)

In Messiah’s name: for those with eyes to see and ears to hear.

In the Catholic and Protestant churches, this day is referred to as Pentecost, a Greek term meaning “fiftieth” (50th). It refers to the festival celebrated on the fiftieth day after Passover (Days of Unleavened Bread) and this 50th day is known as the “Feast of Weeks”. It’s also referred to as the “feast of first fruits”. (See Lev. 23: 10 – 11)

It is one of seven yearly (annual) high holy day Sabbaths celebrated on the day AFTER seven weekly Sabbaths (49 days) and it falls on a Sunday (first day of the week) which is the 50th day.

Please note and understand:: because this annual high holy day Sabbath falls on a Sunday – a once a year Sabbath festival, this is NOT evidence for keeping Sunday as a new and changed Catholic/Christian weekly Sabbath.

The great I AM, the Creator-God does not change or alter his laws, statutes and commandments (Malachi 3: 6) – deceived popes, pastors, priests and other religious leaders, DO!

Here’s the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) scripts — Lev. Chpt. 23 verses 16, 21 & Acts 2: 1 – 4

Lev. Chpt. 23: 16, 21

(16) Even unto the morrow after the seventh Sabbath (Sunday) shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the Lord.
(21) And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day (Sunday), that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

Acts Chpt.2, verses 1 – 4, 6 (PROOF the Messiah and apostles kept the great I AM’s high holy day Sabbaths as recorded in the book of Leviticus)

(1) And when the day of Pentecost (Feast of Weeks) was fully come, they (apostles and others) were all (together) with one accord in one place. (This was after the resurrection and ascension of Messiah)
(2) And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
(3) And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
(4) And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues (languages), as the Spirit gave them utterance
(6) Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

Side note: Speaking gibberish (nonsense, unintelligible utterances) is NOT evidence that one possesses the Holy Spirit as many Christian pastors claim. These leaders are deceived.

The Jews who were listening to the apostles speak, were from many nations and they all heard/understood them in their own language as indicated in verse 6 above.

In conclusion, all those who obey and keep the Creator-God’s weekly and yearly high holy day Sabbath festivals, I’d like to wish you all a Happy Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) Sabbath.

All honor, praise and glory to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who love the truth and hate the lies and deceptions.

Sabbath Day(May 19/18) A Curse And A Fruitless Fig Tree – Israel’s 70’th Anniversary

Sabbath Day (Ex.20: 8 – 11)     Posted By r. a.          Sat., May 19, 2018

The following are excerpts from the blog titled “Freedom From Delusion”. The source link is at the bottom of the article. (r. a. note)

By Freedom From Delusion

We have been fighting for Israel and supporting them for almost 100 years, but instead of blessing, we have had nothing but curses in the United States of America.

We have lost our Christian culture, we have lost our Christian leadership, we have lost our means of production and industry, we have been drawn into war after war, our schools have kids killing kids, abortion is at epidemic levels, Hollywood injects filth and perversions in society, the LGBT agenda has destroyed the sanctity of marriage, the military industrial complex rules the Pentagon, etc., etc.

Christian Zionists who have idolized Israel always misquote Genesis 12:3, they say if we don’t support Israel then God Himself will curse us.

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 12:3)

Anything and everything we do on behalf of Israel has turned into a curse on our country, proving that those quoting the above verse have no concept of what is right before God.

It has nothing to do with a sliver of land in the Middle East, but everything to do with keeping His commandments. Something the U.S. and Israel can’t seem to do, but instead does the opposite marching the world into the curse of perpetual war the world over.

70 years of Israel has been a curse on the world, nothing more. As of this week the Rothshchild’s have a new dynasty heir, who will execute, in ruthless fashion, just like all the others before him.

“Alexandre de Rothschild, 37, was picked to replace his 75-year-old father, David de Rothschild, as the bank’s top executive. The successor will become the seventh generation of the dynasty to take charge of the Franco-British investment bank, which was founded in 1838.” (RT news)

They plan on celebrating their 70 anniversary by launching another world war, and American Christian Zionists will cheer it on. That is the truth of the matter!

Israel is a pariah state that will just end up making the world a more hostile place for everyone. Christians especially need to wake up to this fact, because it just may be too late to avoid another World War.

In Matthew 21:19, Jesus cursed the fruitless fig tree (Israel): And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.

Jews, Edomites, and fake-Jew Khazarians are once again in the land and bearing many leaves, but there is absolutely NO FRUIT.

US Congress Plans To Recognize Isreal’s Sovereignty Over Syria’s Golan Heights

Behold Israel News        Fri., May 18, 2018

The United States Congress will consider a resolution recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

A draft resolution was submitted by the House Foreign Affairs Committee by Ron DeSantis on Thursday, the resolution calling for full recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, citing security given the threat of Iran and Syria’s ongoing civil war.

According to reports released on Thursday, the draft resolution states “It is the sense of the Congress that the Golan Heights represent an integral part of the State of Israel and are crucial to the ability of Israel to safeguard its borders and maintain its existence.”

On security in the region, it states “Given the civil war in Syria and the expansion of Iranian influence in Syria, the United States should recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.”

If the resolution passes, the United States would be the first state to recognize the Golan Heights as part of Israel.

Israel secured the Golan Heights following the Six Day War in 1967. In 1981, it annexed the territory, despite global condemnation and refusal to accept the territory as part of Israel. Since then, Israel has been subject to consistent political and legal efforts to delegitimize the Jewish state’s claims on the land.

The United Nations has passed countless resolutions claiming that Israel has “failed to comply” to Resolution 497 which claims that Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights captured in Six Day War of 1967 as “null and void”.

Trump Admin To Build International “Coalition” Against Iran

The Duran.com    By  Frank Sellers        Fri., May 18, 2018

In addition to withdrawing from the 2015 UNSC Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran’s nuclear development program, brokered under the Obama administration, much to the dismay of each of the other signatories, the Trump admin is now looking to create an international ‘coalition’ against Iran, modeled after the 75 member coalition to defeat ISIS.

Washington repeats its accusations against Iran, which were both spurious and manifold, using them as the basis for seeking this new multinational opposition to Iran.

France 24 reports:  WASHINGTON (AFP)
Washington wants to build a global “coalition” against the Tehran regime and its “destabilizing activities,” the State Department said on Thursday, after pulling out from the Iran nuclear accord to the anger of US allies.

The plan is to be detailed on Monday by the top United States diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in his first major foreign policy address since taking office in April.

“The US will be working hard to put together a coalition,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters.

The aim is to “bring together a lot of countries from around the world with the specific goal of looking at the Iranian regime through a more realistic lens” which would include “all of its destabilizing activities that aren’t just a threat to the region but are a threat to the broader world,” she said.

Nauert added that the coalition will not be “anti-Iran” because the US stands “firmly behind” the country’s people, in contrast to the regime and its “bad actions.”

She evoked a comparison with the US-led international coalition against the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq.

Begun in 2014, that coalition now counts as members 75 countries or institutions and intervened militarily against the jihadists, although only a minority of coalition members have conducted most of that military action, which has left the extremists nearly defeated on that battlefield.

Nauert did not say whether the proposed coalition against Iran’s regime would have a military component.

With many of Washington’s European allies in a bad form with Washington over Iran, due to Trump’s withdrawal from the JCPOA and re-imposition of economic sanctions, they can still count on the support of the Gulf States and Israel, which would welcome conflict with Iran, and who have already initiated military hostilities against it.

This further cements Washington’s bold push to continue with its anti-Tehran foreign policy, in spite of international condemnation thereof…  Washington is moving forward, whether the EU, Russia, and China, like it or not, and whether it makes good sense, or not.

Gideon Levy: “How Absurd”! The Victim Must Apologize To The Killers

Middle East Monitor    By Helmi Al-Asmar         Fri., May 18, 2018

Gideon Levy (pic above) has written in Haaretz about the “absurd” situation whereby, in his words: “The leader of the Palestinian people is forced to apologise to the Jewish people” for saying something “anti-Semitic” about the Holocaust.

According to Levy, “The one who was robbed apologises to the robbers, the victim apologises to the rapist, the dead to the killer.” His article was headed, “Dear Occupiers, sorry if we hurt your feelings” and he pointed out that, “You don’t have to be an admirer of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to understand the depths of the absurd. You don’t have to be an Israel hater to understand the extent of the chutzpah.”

His country, Israel, has never apologised for the Nakba, he noted, “not for the ethnic cleansing, not for the destruction of hundreds of villages and the exiling of hundreds of thousands of people from their land.”

In fact, as this courageous journalist explained, “A nation that hasn’t stopped occupying, destroying and killing, and has never considered apologising for anything – anything – gets its victims to apologise for one measly sentence by their leader.” Predictably, he said, the apology was not accepted. “After all, the occupiers are so sensitive – and their feelings, and only theirs, must be taken into account.”

Israel didn’t apologise for the crimes of the occupation of 1967, added Levy, “or for the stealing of land and the construction of the settlements, or for the false arrests, the mass killing and the destruction of a nation’s life. Not one Israeli statesman today intends to do this as a necessary step toward a different future. But Abbas has to apologise, or [Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor] Lieberman and The New York Times will demand his head. In fact, they’ll demand it even after he apologises.”

On the same day that Levy wrote his article, Haaretz published an editorial that demonstrates the extent of the humiliation of the Palestinians as well as the chutzpah — arrogance — that Levy mentioned. It told readers about Dareen Tatour, 36, who was arrested two and a half years ago after publishing a poem under the title “Resist my people, resist them”.

Her indictment accused her of “publishing on various publications a call for violent acts or terrorism” on Facebook and YouTube, and “praising and identifying with acts of violence or terrorism.” This included, amongst other things, a short film showing masked individuals throwing rocks at the Israeli occupation forces, with the poem being recited in the background.

Tatour’s arrest is another type of state terrorism, as a result of which she has spent most of the past couple of years in prison and under house arrest.

As the writer of the Haaretz editorial puts it, “The Arabs in Israel are used to hearing cries of ‘death to the Arabs’, and a chance perusal of social media or the Knesset corridors is enough to see and hear the incitement – but no one is taken to court for that.”

There is little difference between the condemnation of Abbas and Tatour, as both of them are in cages. He is in Ramallah and she is in the village of Reina, near Nazareth. Both are victims, but they must apologise to their persecutors, or else.

Israel: “A Symbol of War, Racism and Apartheid”

Global Research.ca      By Joyce Chediac     Thurs., May 17, 2018

Israel: It is a pariah state and international outlaw; a dog of war armed and unleashed by the Pentagon; a symbol of war, of racism and apartheid, and of reaction. It is a danger to all people of the region, including Israelis.

Israel claims to be a democracy and a Jewish homeland. This “democracy” published in  January a list of 20 human rights organizations whose members would be banned from the country. This included Jewish groups like Jewish Voice for Peace that support some form of Palestinian rights.

A state that claims to be a refuge from anti-Semitism has twisted the definition of the term to include those who oppose the policies of the Netanyahu regime, many of them war crimes. It has launched an international campaign to get other governments to accept this patently false definition and make it legally binding.

This is aimed at the movement to Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel, which calls for an end to the occupation of Palestine, equal rights for Palestinian citizens of Israel, and the right of return for all Palestinian refugees to their homes.

In the U.S., both Democratic and Republican legislatures have happily complied. Such a bill is currently pending before the U.S. Congress, and 23 states have passed laws outlawing BDS as “anti-Semitic.”

There are other indications of the cynicism and opportunism of the Israeli government. Of all the segments within the U.S. elite, the Netanyahu regime is most closely aligned with the religious ultra-right and the neo-cons, known for their virulent racism and anti-Semitism.

It is also aligned with the most reactionary, repressive and anti-democratic forces in the Arab world—the Saudi Arabian regime and the Gulf states.

After the expulsion of 800,000 Palestinians in 1948, Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben Gurion, said, “The old will die and the young will forget.”
This was an illusion.

Seventy years after the indigenous population was driven from Palestinian and Israel proclaimed in its place, the Palestinian struggle for human and national rights has been passed down for three generations. It is viable, vibrant and growing.

The justice of the Palestinian cause is clearer than ever on the international arena. The steadfastness of the Palestinian people, seen now in the “Great March of Return” on the Gaza border, inspires the whole world.

The Syrian people, too, after seven years of war, remain determined to defend their country and way of life. After the U.S. bombed Syria on April 13, hundreds of thousands took to the streets in defiance.

The U.S. and Israel may be planning more attacks, but that does not mean they will have the final say. The determination and resilience of the oppressed make their struggle an objective force. And it will not be defeated by missiles, snipers or bombs.

Leaked Video: Shows A Young Boy Being Executed By Egyptian Officer (30 sec vid at link)

Middle East Monitor           Thurs., May 17, 2018

A leaked video appears to show a child being executed at close range in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula by an army officer.

In the 30 second video the young boy is lying on a hill partially covered in white material. Moments before his death he asks for his mother.

“Don’t worry,” replies the army officer. “We’ll call your father to pick you up. We’ll cover you,” he adds, before shooting him in the head.

The incident took place in 2015 though the video was leaked today after being sent to Egyptian activist Haitham Ghoneim by a soldier who was serving in Sinai.

Ghoneim drew attention to a statement posted on Twitter in March this year which shows a picture of what looks like the same young boy with bomb-making equipment placed next to his body. The army spokesman vows to destroy terrorist dens and hotbeds and declares success in eliminating a terrorist cell and arresting 345 individuals.

Although the video cannot be independently verified, if it is true this young boy is another victim of the heavy-handed war on terror Egyptian security forces are waging in Sinai which purports to be against the local Daesh affiliate, Sinai Province. Under this counterterror operation authorities have forcibly disappeared hundreds of civilians. Several have been extrajudicially executed and then presented to the public as terrorists.

US State Passes Law Defining Any Criticism Of Israel As “Anti-Semitic”, Just As They Killed 60 Palestinians

What is so dam outrageous is the fact that modern Israel are not a Semitic people. These counterfeits and imposters are slaughtering Palestinians —  a true Semitic people! The real deal “anti-Semites” are the pretenders – the Israelis.(r. a. note)

By Rachel Blevins @ Free Thought Project      Wed., May 16, 2018

South Carolina will become the first state to legally define criticism of Israel as “anti-Semitism” when a new measure goes into effect on July 1, targeting public schools and universities. While politicians have tried to pass the measure as a standalone law for two years, they finally succeeded temporarily by passing it as a “proviso” that was slipped into the 2018-2019 budget.

According to the text of the measure, the definition of “anti-Semitism” will now include:

(1) a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. –Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities;
(2) calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews; making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as a collective; accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, the state of Israel, or even for acts committed by non-Jews;
(3) accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust;
(4) accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interest of their own nations;
(5) using the symbols and images associated with classic anti-Semitism to characterize Israel or Israelis;
(6) drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis;
(7) blaming Israel for all inter-religious or political tensions;
(8) applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation;
(9) multilateral organizations focusing on Israel only for peace or human rights investigations;
(10) denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, and denying Israel the right to exist, provided, however, that criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as anti-Semitic.

As can be determined by the long list of ways in which South Carolina will now define “anti-Semitism,” individuals will be forced to tiptoe around a legitimate subject, and expressing an opinion that is no longer considered politically correct can now be legally used against them.

Caroline Nagel, a professor at the University of South Carolina, told The State that she is concerned the law will discourage discussions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and will hinder pro-Palestine student groups.

..when Israel shoots and kills 60 civilians and injures around 1,700 in just one day, the U.S. responds to the bloodshed by blocking the United Nations Security Council’s attempt to push for an independent investigation into Israel’s actions.

The new measure in South Carolina may focus on public universities right now, but it is setting a blueprint for other states to follow, and in addition to chipping away at the First Amendment, it is serving as a clear reminder that the United States only seems to care about oppressive governments who commit human rights violations when those governments are not considered “close allies.”

EU Plans To Ditch The Dollar For Oil Purchases From Iran

PRESS TV         Wed., May 16, 2018

The European Union plans to switch to the euro for oil purchases from Iran, eliminating the US dollar as the two sides work to protect bilateral trade against possible American sanctions, a Russian report says.

“I’m privy to the information that the EU is going to shift from dollar to euro to pay for crude from Iran,” the website of Russian news channel RT said on Wednesday, citing a diplomatic source who spoke to Sputnik news agency.

Iran exports about 450,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil to Europe and around 1.8 million bpd to Asia. The country has boosted its oil production nearly 1 million bpd since the nuclear deal lifted Western sanctions in January 2016.

US Treasury Department has instructed countries to make significant cuts to their imports over the next six months to be considered for potential sanctions relief. The US government has said the sanctions on Iran will go back into force from November 5.

Iran’s main oil clients in Europe are Italy, France, Greece, Spain, Poland and Turkey. Turkey is the biggest importer with 250,000 bpd, followed by Greece at 120,000 bpd and France between 70,000-100,000 bpd.

Western analysts think an estimated 500,000 bpd of Iranian exports will be disrupted by November this year, but Iran’s veteran Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh has said shipments will not be affected.

“Trump’s decision will not have any impact on our oil export … that era is history now,” Zanganeh said recently.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met with his British, French and German counterparts in Brussels on Tuesday to discuss mechanisms for keeping bilateral trade on track after US withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal.

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said EU experts were aiming to come up with concrete proposals in the coming weeks on nine key issues including ensuring Iran could sell its oil and gas products and have access to international finance.

Mogherini acknowledged the enormous challenge of finding a way around US sanctions punishing businesses trading with Iran. “We know it’s a difficult task but we are determined to do it and we have started to work to put in place measures that help ensure this happens,” she told reporters.

EU experts have already started work on measures to get round US sanctions on Iran, Mogherini said.

President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out the US from the nuclear deal and re-impose sanctions has also added fresh momentum to efforts to start trading oil in yuan following China’s launch of crude oil futures.

China is the world’s biggest importer of crude oil and also the biggest buyer of Iranian oil, with the recent boost in Shanghai futures partially attributed to the sanctions decision.

Iranian officials have already reiterated that they prefer the country’s future transactions to be carried out in the currencies other than the dollar.
