   The Elohim of Joshua 22:1-34
 
              A moment before reading the Bible this past August or September of 2005, prayer was made for help to find a passage of Scripture that would be quite obvious that the real translation of Elohim should really be just simply superiors or Superiors or superior one or Superior Ones. After the prayer, this scribe just happened to start reading and studying  the above mentioned passage from the Concordant Version. It is quite literal and more consistent at using the same word to represent any given word in the ancient Scriptures. With regards to God, it uses Yahweh, El, Eloah, or Elohim, which are closer to the spellings of the actual Hebrew and Aramaic Scriptures than most versions.

   According to the study done by Don C. Hewey at his web site of http://www.1john57.com/literalerror.htm, there are a number of contradictions or inconsistencies in their translations and in understanding about God and his word. This is his opinion of course. One would have to study his comments and that of others.It can still be of great value though, as it helped this author get a proper understanding on the daily resurrection of the saints as they happen to die and on some other parts of doctrine.

            Note though that JĒH-wah is the best transliteration of God the Father’s name, NOT Yahweh. This was revealed by divine revelation recently. This happened when this writer asked God in Jesus’ name for the proper pronunciation of God the Father’s personal name. He asked God to give it to a new Christian friend that he had, who claimed he would hear God talking to him in an audible way. This was probably God’s Holy Spirit answering his friend’s prayer requests, often for the help in understanding God and his Holy Bible. He would sometimes be given the actual references in the Bible for the answers.

         A day or two after this writer prayed for this answer, his new Christian friend, a retired gentleman and a former Roman Catholic phoned him. He was then told that a special prayer was made for God to give him, Remi Labossiere of St. Boniface, Manitoba, an answer to this writer’s prayer but he did not want Remi to know what the prayer was about, so he would not guess at the answer. Remi understood this and the two of them closed off their phone conversation.

        Suddenly, out of the lips and mouth of this writer came the utterance JĒH-wah, with the emphasis on the first syllable and the pronunciation of the e as in the word bee. The a in wah was pronounced like the a in father. There was also a complete break of no sound before the ending of the word.

           In the Hebrew text that the Authorized Version or King James Version of the Old God is called יה or Jeh or Jeh. This is commonly said to be Jah or Yah though but as found out from the above supernatural utterance it should really be Jeh. This word is in forty-five places in the Hebrew text. Note the samples below:

 

Psalm 68:4, Sing unto [the Superiors], sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name [JEH], and rejoice before him. or Ps 68:4 Sing <shiyr> unto God <'elohiym>, sing praises <zamar> to his name <shem>: extol <calal> him that rideth <rakab> upon the heavens <`arabah> by his name <shem> JAH <Yahh>, and rejoice <`alaz> before <paniym> him. Ex 15:2 The LORD <Yahh> is my strength <`oz> and song <zimrath>, and he is become my salvation <y@shuw`ah>: he <zeh> is my God <'el>, and I will prepare him an habitation <navah>; my father's <'ab> God <'elohiym>, and I will exalt <ruwm> him. Ps 105:45 That they might observe <shamar> his statutes <choq>, and keep <natsar> his laws <towrah>. Praise <halal> ye the LORD <Yahh>. {Praise...: Heb. Hallelujah} (Interlinear version in the Power Bible CD1

             Here are the passages which include the words for God plus passages which give a good clue as to their proper meanings in Joshua 22:

             1) . . . Moses the servant of [JEH-wah/Be-er[1]] enjoined on you . . . . 3) . . . the instruction of [JEH-wah of your superior ones (the patriarchs, priests, and the chiefs of the tribes)]. 4) Now [JEH-wah of your superiors] has given rest to your brothers, just as He promised them. . . . Moses the servant of [JEH-wah] . . . . 5) . . . Moses the servant of [JEH-wah] enjoined on you: to love [JEH-wah of your superiors] and to walk in all His ways, to observe His instructions, to cling to Him and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul.

            9) So the sons of Reuben, the sons of Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh turned about and departed from the other sons of Israel, from Shiloh in the land of Canaan, to go to the land of Gilead, to the land of their holding which they held at the bidding of [JEH-wah] by means of Moses.

            10) When they came to Geliloth of the Jordan in the land of Canaan, the sons of Reuben, the sons of Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh built an altar there by the Jordan, an altar towering in appearance. 11) Then the other sons of Israel heard the report: Behold, the sons of Reuben, the sons of Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh have built an altar at the forefront of the land of Canaan at Geliloth of the Jordan, on the side of the sons of Israel. 12) When the sons of Israel heard of it, the whole congregation of the sons of Israel assembled at Shiloh to march up against them with the militia host.

            13) But first the sons of Israel sent Phinehas son of Eleazar the priest to the sons of Reuben, to the sons of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh in the land of Gilead; 14) and with him were ten princes, one prince from each patriarchal house of all the stocks of Israel; each of them was the head of their fathers’ house among the thousands of Israel. 15) When they came to the sons of Reuben, to the sons of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh in the land of Gilead, they spoke to them saying:

            16) Thus said the whole congregation of [JEH-wah]: What is this offense with which you have offended the [superiors] of Israel [their patriarchs and the chiefs of their family units or tribes], by turning back today from following [JEH-wah], in that you have built for yourselves an altar and you revolt today against [JEH-wah]! 17) Was the depravity of Peor too little for us, from which we have not cleansed ourselves until this day, even though a stroke came on the congregation of [JEH-wah]? 18) And are you today turning back from following [JEH-wah]? It will be so that you are revolting today against [JEH-wah]; then tomorrow He shall be wrathful against the whole congregation of Israel. 19) If however the land of your holding be unclean, pass over for yourselves to the land of [JEH-wah’s] holding, where the Tabernacle of [JEH-wah] tabernacles, and have holding among us. But do not revolt against [JEH-wah], and do not revolt against us in that you build an altar for yourselves apart from the altar of [JEH-wah of] our [superiors]. 20) Did not Achar son of Zerah offend with an offense regarding the doomed goods, so that wrath came upon the whole congregation of Israel? And he was not the only one who deceased for his depravity.

            21) Then the sons of Reuben, the sons of Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh responded and spoke to the heads of the thousands of Israel: 22) Superior one [(Phinehas, the son of Eleazar the high priest)], superior ones [(the chiefs of the tribes of Israel)], JEH-wah, Superior one [your honour], superior ones [gentlemen], [JEH-wah], He knows, and let Israel itself know: If we acted in revolt or in offense against [JEH-wah], do not save us this day! 24) Yet assuredly we did this from anxiety for this reason, saying, Tomorrow your sons might speak to our sons, saying, What have you to do with [JEH-wah of the superiors] of Israel?

             29) Far be it from us that we should revolt against [JEH-wah] to turn back today from follow-ing [JEH-wah] to build an altar for ascent offerings, for approach presents and for sacrifices aside from the altar of [JEH-wah of our superiors] that is before His Tabernacle.

            33) and the word was good in the eyes of the sons of Israel. The sons of Israel blessed [the superiors] and spoke no longer of marching up against them with the militia host to ruin the land in which the sons of Reuben and the sons of Gad were dwelling. 34 Then the sons of Reuben and the sons of Gad called the altar as follows: It is the testimony between us that [JEH-wah] is the One, [Superior].

2  Be-er is the essential meaning of the name Jeh-wah. This Jeh-wah is the Superior one who makes things come into existence or come to be. See Ex 3:14 (KJV) “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.” The words I AM are part of the verb to be.

        

Prophecy Club Radio Program of May 3rd and 4th, 2012 on Isaiah 24 Prophecy, the Two Witnesses, and the Rapture

A. Isaiah 24 Prophecy

 
    I have been listening to the above radio program over 9860 KHz at 9 p. m. Central Time during the last two days about the above prophecies. Did you folks of the Prophecy Club not hear of the visions of Evangelist David Terrell of Dallas Texas and of Mother Shipton? They both had similar visions as seen or described by Isaiah in his chapter 24.
   David Terrell saw a comet breaking up into several pieces and one piece was one hundred by fifty miles wide. This piece apparently will land into the Atlantic Ocean, while the front piece will land somewhere in Canada, maybe in the northern area, another piece will land in the Gulf of Mexico. He then saw the Earth turned upside down.
   Mother Shipton of about four or five hundred years ago saw what she described as a dragon circling the Earth seven times in six days (or the reverse). It apparently crashes and then it turns the world upside down.
   It appears that what has been called "Planet X" is really that coming comet which is only about one hundred miles in diameter, but big enough to turn the world upside down.
   A creation science article of many years ago pointed out that the markings on the ground about the sun dial poles of Egypt and many other places in the world show that our world was at a little different slant before the Deluge of Noah than it is now. It shifted about seven degrees. Another scientist in the seventeen hundreds found a manuscript in Europe that said that while Noah's family was preparing the Ark for their family and the animals, a comet was seen in their sky for thirty days[before the rain started to pour down]. This most likely crashed into the Earth and gave the reason for the wobble in the orbit of our planet Earth now.

B. The Two Witnesses/the Two Prophets
 
    You mentioned something about what the two witnesses are about. At the moment, I can not afford your book or DVD on the topic. So I will just give you my idea about who or what they are. I believe they are going to be a man and woman married couple trying to reveal the truth about the faith that was once given to the saints of old. Through their testimony and witnessing in person and through a website or two plus through radio or television broadcasting or announcements they will try to show light on the real meanings of disputed or misunderstood Bible words and topics that have been dividing the Church too much. Then one day, one of them or both of them will be in a meeting of the above mentioned David Terrell who will announce that one or more of the witnesses is present in the meeting. Shortly after this, the two prophets (Rev. 11:10) will travel to Jerusalem where there will be a terrorist attack and they then get killed. After lying dead on the street for 3 1/2 days during the terrorist attack God suddenly raises them from the dead.
    Why? Perhaps to prove the veracity of the Holy Bible and to verify there is a Hell and a Heaven to all the unbelievers.
    I had two dreams about the above information many years ago. One about David Terrell and the other about a terrorist attack. Whether this was of God, I do not know. We will very likely find out shortly.
    Hopefully this event will happen this year but it may not happen for two or more months, that is, if it will happen this year.
 
C. The Rapture
 
    One more thing, about the so-called rapture. In Matthew 13, Jesus said that the evil ones go first and in Mt. 5 that the meek will inherit the Earth, not the evil ones. In other words the common rapture story is a lie from Hell to get the Church to not be concerned about winning the lost for Jesus and about the growing bad conditions of the world.

Respectfully yours,

Christian Living:
Traits of the Self Life
by anonymous
 
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my thoughts and see if there be any wicked way in me.” (Psalm 139:23-24)
The following are some of the features and manifestations of the self-life. The Spirit alone can interpret and apply this to your individual case. As you read, examine yourself as if in the immediate presence of God.
Are you ever conscious of: A secret spirit of pride – an exalted feeling, in view of your success or position; because of your good training and appearance; because of your natural gifts and abilities. An important independent spirit. Stiffness and preciseness?
Love of human praise; a secret fondness to be noticed; love of supremacy, drawing attention to self in conversation; a swelling out of self when you have had a free time in speaking or praying?
The stirrings of anger or impatience, which, worst of all, you call nervousness or holy indignation; a touchy, sensitive spirit; a disposition to resent and retaliate when disapproved of or contradicted; a desire to throw sharp, heated flings at another?
Self-will; a stubborn, unteachable spirit; an arguing, talkative spirit; harsh, sarcastic expressions; an unyielding, headstrong disposition; a driving, commanding spirit; a disposition to critici[z]e and pick flaws when set aside and unnoticed; a peevish, fretful spirit; a disposition that loves to be coaxed and humored?
Carnal fear; a man-fearing spirit; a shrinking from reproach and duty; reasoning around your cross; a shrinking from doing your whole duty by those of wealth or position; a fearfulness that someone will offend and drive some prominent person away; a compromising spirit?
A jealous disposition, a secret spirit of envy shut up in your heart; an unpleasant sensation in view of the great prosperity and success of another; a disposition to speak of the faults and failings, rather than the gifts and virtues, of those more talented and appreciated than yourself?
A dishonest, deceitful disposition; the evading and covering of the truth; the covering up of your real faults; the leaving of  a better impression of yourself than is strictly true; false humility; exaggeration; straining the truth?
Unbelief; a spirit of discouragement in times of pressure and opposition; lack of quietness and confidence in God; lack of faith and trust in God; a disposition to worry and complain in the midst of pain, poverty, or at the dispensations of Divine Providence; an over-anxious feeling whether everything will come out all right?
Formality and deadness; lack of concern for lost souls; dryness and indifference; lack of power with God?
Selfishness; love of ease; love of money?
These are some of the traits which generally indicate a carnal heart. By prayer, hold your heart open to the searchlight of God, until you see the groundwork thereof. The Holy Ghost will enable you, by confession and faith, to bring your “self-life” to the death. Do not patch over, but go to the bottom. It will pay.
 
Oh, to be saved from myself, dear Lord,
Oh, to be lost in Thee:
Oh, that it might be no more I,
But Christ that lives in me.
 
“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me” (Psalm 51:10).
[Then someone else added the following:]
Here is how you may deliver yourself - Fast and Pray[, repent of all your sins and forgive everyone and everything that may have wronged you,] commanding the devil to get out of your body [in Jesus’ name and by the Blood of the Lamb] in a loud voice, every 30 minutes till you are free, and get filled with the Holy Spirit, so the[ filthy spirits] cannot come back. [Then do your best with God’s help, to obey God’s Holy Spirit, to read God’s Holy Bible which is a mirror to the soul, to worship with other believers, and to pray without ceasing, practising the presence of God.]

The Said Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses
by Clifford Besson

This book in previous editions “has become quite influential in American folk-magic, and has been extensively used by the Pennsylvania Dutch hexmeisters, Hoodoo practitioners, and African-American root workers. I hope that this corrected edition will be of interest to those who have suffered with the problems of prior editions, and I welcome all suggestions.” (Web site:
http://www.esotericarchives.com/moses/67moses.htm

Here is another website: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sixth_and_Seventh_Books_of_Moses

The above suggests the books are not really of the Superior One  at all, but just works of man to try to explain the tremendous miracles that the Superior One  performed at the requests of his prophets. The Superior One  performed these happenings through the working of his secret agents, his angels. Most often they are invisible and when invisible they are the Superior One’s Holy Spirit (see Hebrews 1:7; Isaiah 63:9-10; Exodus 33:14). The word spirit or Spirit means invisible or Invisible One but it could also mean a team of Invisibles Ones as a Holy Team of angels of the Superior One.

Consider this miracle that the Superior One  did for Elijah which was definitely not magic because it came right after a short prayer to the Superior Almighty,  to the Supreme One of the Universe.

 1Ki 18:36 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, [Jehwah] [Superior One]  of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art [Superior One]  in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. (Ex 3:6; Nu 16:28; 1Ki 8:43; 2Ki 19:19; Ps 83:18)  37 Hear me, O [Jehwah], hear me, that this people may know that thou art the [Jehwah] [Superior One] , and that thou hast turned their heart back again. 38 Then the fire of the [Jehwah] fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. (Le 9:24; Jg 6:21; 1Ch 21:26; 2Ch 7:1; 1Co 16:24; 2Co 7:1)  39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, [Jehwah], he is [of the Superior Ones]; [Jehwah], he is of the Superior Ones]. Authorized Version with theological comments in the [ ] to make the Scriptures more understandable. (1Ki 18:21,24) (These Scriptures are from the Power BibleCD).
 
 The Real Date and Year of the Birth of the Messiah/Christ Jesus Now Revealed
by Clifford Besson

    A number of years ago it was revealed that Christ Jesus was born on the Festival of Purim (this means lots in Hebrew and see The Book of Esther, chapter 9, verses 20-30). This festival is a celebration of deliverance and of salvation from being exterminated by their enemies in the Persian Empire of a certain year under King Xerxes I (485-465 B. C. E.). This insight was revealed to Clifford Besson on 22 November 1970 after he prayed that God would reveal this event to him, as no one seemed to really know when Jesus was born.
    He got off his knees and went to his book shelf and took out a book on Religions of America. He immediately opened it up and it opened to the Festival of Purim, a two day festival. At first, it was of going door to door sharing booty with their neighbours after getting victory over their enemies. After that it was a time of festivals, of partying, of sharing, and of sending gifts of joy to their friends and the poor.
    No wonder there was no room in the inn in Bethlehem (Luke 2:7), it was because of so many people from the country side coming to visit their friends in the villages and towns to celebrate their Festival of Purim.
    At first Clifford did not know the year, so after some years trying to figure it out, he prayed again and within forty-eight hours or so, God revealed the year of 5 B. C.
    This was through an article in the Winnipeg Free Press in the January 8, 1976 issue (Vol. 83, No. 87, on page 21). The article was entitled "Yule star called a comet." This was the viewpoint of astrophysicist Paul Feldman from studying Chinese records of seeing a "broom star" [comet] which traveled for about thirty-five (35) days.
   This gave the magi on camels enough time to go to Jerusalem and Bethlehem to see the Christ child in the time of the year when shepherds would be watching their flocks at night (Luke 2:8), because of the new lambs being born.They arrived though when Jesus and his parents were lodging in a house (Matthew 3:9-11).
    The Festival of Purim occurred on February 23 of that year, which is during the winter time. As Jesus was of the Judeans and of the Hebrews, we should be remembering his birthday according to the Hebrew or Jewish calendar and their festival times. The Festival of Purim occurs one month before Passover.
    During the time of the birth of Jesus the Messiah, or Anointed One, the sun was crossing the area in the sky with the constellation Pisces (Fishes) from February 19 to March 20. Later on the Christians in the catacombs of ancient Rome used the drawing of a fish to indicate they were of the great fisher of men, Jesus.
   The spelling for the word fish in Greek is ichthys. An acronym for Iesous Christos Theou Hysios Soter, meaning Jesus Christ, of God the son Saviour.
   This sign of the constellation Pisces in the Zodiac in those days was to the Chaldeans the sign of the West and of the Mediterranean countries but to the Hebrews though, it was their sign of Israel and of their Messiah. This constellation stood at the end of the course of the sun and at the beginning of its new course through the Zodiac and of the heavens. They also saw it as the end of the old age and as the beginning of a new one. (Werner Keller, trans. William Neil, rev. Joachim Rehork and B. H. Rasmussen, The Bible As History, (New York: Bantam Books, rev. ed. 1982) p. 364). .
 
 

Is There Really a Mandela Effect in the Bible?

C. Besson

A number of years ago I heard a prophecy that the heroes of our nations would be denigrated. This might even be in the book Nineteen Eighty-four 1984 by George Orwell

With Regards to the Bible Here are Some Passages that have been said to have been Altered but is it true though?

Consider Isaiah 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

Isa 65:25; Eze 34:25; Ho 2:18

In other translations from the Hebrew of about A. D. 1000:

The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, says the LORD.


2Wolf, ravenous, Gen. 49:27 [Benjamin is a plundering wolf . . ..] . . . FIGURATIVE: Of the enemies of the righteous, Matt 7:15; 10:16; John 10:12; Acts 20:29. Of the reconciling power of the gospel. Isa. 11:6. (Nave's Topical Bible p. 1412)


“Lion, King of beasts, Mic. 5:8 . . .FIGURATIVE: Of a ruler's wrath, Prov. 19:12; . . . of Satan, 1 Pet. 5:8; . . .SYMBOLICAL: Gen. 49:9; [Judah is a lion's welp; . . . .” (Nave's, p. 799)


From the above, it appears that the conception of the Bible supposedly saying that a lion and a child or lamb would be sitting down together was probably from someone's painting. It would be easier for a painter to paint a lion lying down next to a lamb or child than of having them standing up or walking about with the same.

Lu 17:31 in that day, he who shall be on the house top, and his vessels in the house, let him not come down to take them away; and he in the field, in like manner, let him not turn backward; (YLT) [both of the above are from the Greek translation scriptures from the Aramaic]

Lu 17:31 In that day, he who is on the roof with his possessions in the house, let him not come down to take them, and he who is in the field, let him not turn back. (The Hebraic-Roots Version Scriptures [from the Aramaic])

Lu 19:23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury? {money: Gr. silver} (KJV)

23 and wherefore didst thou not give my money to the bank, and I, having come, with interest might have received it? (YLT)

23 Why did you not put my money into the broker's hands, that when I returned. I might have demand it back with interest? (The Aramaic Gospels and Acts Text and Translation by Joseph Pashka, 2003) The Hebraic-Roots has exchange.


Lu 19:27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me. (KJV)

27 but those my enemies, who did not wish me to reign over them, bring hither and slay before me.' (YLT)

27 But as for those my enemies, who would not have me rule over them, bring them and kill them in front of me. (The Aramaic Gospels . . .)


Mt 25:27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. (KJV)

27 it behoved thee then to put my money to the money-lenders, and having come I had received mine own with increase. (YLT) 3

27 therefore, you should have given my wealth to my money-changers so that at my coming I would have received what is mine with profit. (Hebrew Gospel of Matthew [manuscripts from about A. D. 1400 and translation into English] by George Howard, 2002)

27 you should have put my money on deposit and that I might have come back and recovered my property with interest. (The Aramaic Gospels . . . )


Mr 2:22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles. {bottles: or, sacks of skin} (KJV)

22 and no one doth put new wine into old skins, and if not--the new wine doth burst the skins, and the wine is poured out, and the skins will be destroyed; but new wine into new skins is to be put.' (YLT)

22 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, lest the wine ruptures the wineskins, and the wineskins be ruined, and the wine spilled; so they put new wine into new wineskins. (The Aramaic G. . .) (Glenn David Bauscher's translation from the Aramaic also uses wineskins.)


Mt 9:17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved. {bottles: or, sacks of skin, or, leather} (KJV)

17 `Nor do they put new wine into old skins, and if not--the skins burst, and the wine doth run out, and the skins are destroyed, but they put new wine into new skins, and both are preserved together.' (YLT)

38 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved. (KJV)

38 but new wine into new skins is to be put, and both are preserved together; (YLT)

(The Aramaic Gospels . . . has wineskins)

This section on the bottles, skins, vessels, or wineskins mean essentially the same thing except the word bottle tends to make people of our era think or picture glass bottles but when the old King James translation was prepared in 1611 and the present edition of 1769 vessels that could carry liquids were called bottles, whether they were made of clay or of skins.

BOT'TLE, n.

1. A hollow vessel of glass, wood, leather or other material, with a narrow mouth, for holding and carrying liquors. The oriental nations use skins or leather for the conveyance of liquors; and of this kind are the bottles mentioned in scripture. "Put new wine into bottles." In Europe and America, glass is used for liquors of all kinds; and farmers use small cags or hollow vessels of wood. The small kinds of glass bottles are called vials or phials.


2. The contents of a bottle; as much as a bottle contains; but from the size of bottles used for wine, porter and cyder, a bottle is nearly a quart; as a bottle of wine or a porter.

(from Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of American English)

 
  

Immaculate Conception:

A Revelation that Makes Real Sense

by C. Besson

Yes, the Mother of Jesus was born with “immaculate conception” but so were you.

Psalm 8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. Matthew 21:16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

In other words, an infant can not be sinful. Now consider this: a child is one who is between infancy and youth, while a youth is one who is in the time of life between childhood and maturity.

Genesis 8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. Psalm 25:7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD. Matthew 19:13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

As seen above, small children or infants are sinless.

The above insight and revelation was given to Brother Remi Labossiere after simply asking God about whether the birth of Mary, the mother of Jesus was by “Immaculate Conception.”

The Book of Jubilees and the Sabbath

Here is an enlightening quotation from The Book of Jubilees on the Sabbath, from http://wesley.nnu.edu/sermons-essays-books/noncanonical-literature/noncanonical-literature-ot-pseudepigrapha/the-book-of-jubilees/

An Introduction

By Clifford Besson

The so-called experts on ancient literature and the Bible claim that the original Book of Jubilees was written within two hundred years before Jesus was born but they do not realize that the history of writing started during the life time of Cainan, son of Enosh, son of Seth, son of Adam (when Adam was about (not a hundred and) thirty years out of the Garden of Eden, according to the 2nd Book of Adam and Eve, chapter one).

The Book of Jasher (the English translation from the Hebrew that was published in 1840 by M. M. Noah and A. S. Gould in New York) says in Chapter II:13 “And in those days [when he was forty years of age, in the 265th year of Adam and Eve] Cainan wrote upon tablets of stone, what was to take place in time to come, and he put them in his treasures.”

So when the Book of Jubilees said that God told Moses through an angel to write the information found in this book, while he was up in the mountain with God for forty days and nights, why would this not be right or correct. Moses was an educated man, being brought up in a palace in Egypt, he must have been able to read and write. He could have also have read the Books of Adam and Eve, the preliminary first sixty-five chapters of the Book of Jasher, and the Books of Enoch which were probably in the libraries of Egypt. From my study of a chronology of the Bible times from Adam and Eve, the information in the Book of Jubilees of the seven years (chapter III:12) and three months and one day into the fourth month (chapter III:28), when they were put out of the Garden of Eden were critical or very necessary in my early work on a chronology from Adam and Eve on to the divided kingdom. I found with God’s help and the Thompson Chain Reference Bible that Adam and Eve were created in 3,888 B. C. and put out of the Garden of Eden on about the first of February, 3,880 B. C.

Chapter II: verse 15 him dominion. And these four kinds He created on the sixth day. And there were altogether 16 two and twenty kinds. And He finished all his work on the sixth day -all that is in the heavens and on the earth, and in the seas and in the abysses, and in the light and in the darkness, and in 17 everything. And He gave us a great sign, the Sabbath day, that we should work six days, but 18 keep Sabbath on the seventh day from all work. And all the angels of the presence, and all the angels of sanctification, these two great classes -He hath bidden us to keep the Sabbath with Him 19 in heaven and on earth. And He said unto us: 'Behold, I will separate unto Myself a people from among all the peoples, and these shall keep the Sabbath day, and I will sanctify them unto Myself as My people, and will bless them; as I have sanctified the Sabbath day and do sanctify (it) unto 20 Myself, even so will I bless them, and they shall be My people and I will be their God. And I have chosen the seed of Jacob from amongst all that I have seen, and have written him down as My first-born son, and have sanctified him unto Myself for ever and ever; and I will teach them the 21 Sabbath day, that they may keep Sabbath thereon from all work.' And thus He created therein a sign in accordance with which they should keep Sabbath with us on the seventh day, to eat and to drink, and to bless Him who has created all things as He has blessed and sanctified unto Himself 22 a peculiar people above all peoples, and that they should keep Sabbath together with us. And He caused His commands to ascend as a sweet savour acceptable before Him all the days . . . 23 There (were) two and twenty heads of mankind from Adam to Jacob, and two and twenty kinds of work were made until the seventh day; this is blessed and holy; and the former also is blessed and 24 holy; and this one serves with that one for sanctification and blessing. And to this (Jacob and his seed) it was granted that they should always be the blessed and holy ones of the first testimony 25 and law, even as He had sanctified and blessed the Sabbath day on the seventh day. He created heaven and earth and everything that He created in six days, and God made the seventh day holy, for all His works; therefore, He commanded on its behalf that, whoever does any work thereon 26 shall die, and that he who defiles it shall surely die. Wherefore do thou command the children of Israel to observe this day that they may keep it holy and not do thereon any work, and not to 27 defile it, as it is holier than all other days. And whoever profanes it shall surely die, and whoever does thereon any work shall surely die eternally, that the children of Israel may observe this day throughout their generations, and not be rooted out of the land; for it is a holy day and a blessed 28 day. And every one who observes it and keeps Sabbath thereon from all his work, will be holy and 29 blessed throughout all days like unto us [angels]. Declare and say to the children of Israel the law of this day both that they should keep Sabbath thereon, and that they should not forsake it in the error of their hearts; (and) that it is not lawful to do any work thereon which is unseemly, to do thereon their own pleasure, and that they should not prepare thereon anything to be eaten or drunk, and (that it is not lawful) to draw water, or bring in or take out thereon through their gates any burden, 30 which they had not prepared for themselves on the sixth day in their dwellings. And they shall not bring in nor take out from house to house on that day; for that day is more holy and blessed than any jubilee day of the jubilees; on this we kept Sabbath in the heavens before it was made 31 known to any flesh to keep Sabbath thereon on the earth. And the Creator of all things blessed it, but he did not sanctify all peoples and nations to keep Sabbath thereon, but Israel alone: them 32 alone he permitted to eat and drink and to keep Sabbath thereon on the earth. And the Creator of all things blessed this day which He had created for blessing and holiness and glory above all 33 days. This law and testimony was given to the children of Israel as a law for ever unto their generations.

[We as Christians, while being in Christ, have been grafted into the line of Abraham as spiritual Israel, one who will rule as a mighty one with God. See Jeremiah 31:31-34, Romans 9:24-26; 10:19, 20, Galatians 3:26-29, 6:16, Ephesians 2:11, 12, We are the called ones or elected ones (Romans 11:7, 11-30, Ephesians 3:6. We should therefore be obeying God’s fourth commandment rather than the Roman Catholic precept instituted in A. D. 321.

In A.D. 325, Pope Sylvester officially named Sunday “the Lord’s Day,” and in A.D. 338, Eusebius, the court bishop of Constantine, wrote, “All things whatsoever that it was the duty to do on the Sabbath (the seventh day of the week) we (Constantine, Eusebius, and other bishops) have transferred to the Lord’s Day (the first day of the week) as more appropriately belonging to it.”

Instead of the humble lives of persecution and self-sacrifice led by the apostles, church leaders now exalted themselves to the place of God. “This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world” (1 John 4:3).

In the Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, we read:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea, (AD 336) transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday….
Q. Why did the Catholic Church substitute Sunday for Saturday?
A. The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday, because Christ rose from the dead on a Sunday, and the Holy Ghost descended upon the Apostles on a Sunday.
Q. By what authority did the Church substitute Sunday for Saturday?
A. The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday by the plenitude of that divine power which Jesus Christ bestowed upon her!

During the last many years I heard one or more preachers saying that because the Sun starts going down a moment after noon time then that must be when evening starts and therefore a new day begins for in

Genesis 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. Gen 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. Gen 1:13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. Etc.

Not knowing whether this was true or not, I sought and sought for Scripture that would make it clear as to when a new day or when a Sabbath day began or ended. On my search one day during the last few months I came across the following verse as one evidence and a major evidence as to when a day ends and a new one begins. I also found the next verse about evening till evening.

Nehemiah 13:19 And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath: and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath day.

Leviticus 23:32 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.

The word above called even is simply an archaic word for evening or eve and what does it mean:

e·ven2 (vÃn), n. Archaic.

evening; eve.

[bef. 950; ME; OE %fen; akin to G Abend, OFris "vend. See EVENING]

eve·ning ("vÆning), n.

1. the latter part of the day and early part of the night.

2. the period from sunset to bedtime: He spent the evenings reading.

3. Chiefly Midland and Southern U.S. the time between noon and sunset, including the afternoon and twilight.

4. any concluding or declining period: the evening of life.

5. an evening's reception or entertainment: Their evenings at home were attended by the socially prominent.

adj.

6. of or pertaining to evening: The evening sky shone with stars.

7. occurring or seen in the evening: the evening mist.

[bef. 1000; ME; OE %fnung, equiv. to %fn(ian) draw toward evening + -ung n. suffix]

Syn.1. eventide, dusk, twilight, gloaming, nightfall.

(Random House Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary)

Though the third definition mentions noon and sunset, including the afternoon and twilight, that is just a local meaning for that part of the world but the Authorized Version was prepared hundreds of years ago in the United Kingdom for the whole English speaking world so the other meanings must apply. Furthermore, Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary says that the Hebrew word translated even or evening here is #06153, bre eh’-reb from 6150, dusk: dusk--+day, even(ing, tide), night. 06150. which is bre `arab, aw-rab' a primitive root (identical with 6148 through the idea of covering with a texture); to grow dusky at sundown:--be darkened, (toward) evening.

So one can see therefore that a day ends when it starts getting very noticeably dark and not after noon time or at sunset.
