  1. What makes you doubt that Twinky has a brain previously Perhaps you should check yours for doubting others just because they hold a different view
  2. I will be pretty soon gone from gsc- if people want to communicate with me - they can pm me The public forum is a waste of my time- just invites people to nit pick and poke comments against me You cannot be a part of the covenant relationship with God under the new covenant if you do not keep all of God's commandments. People who ignore the 7th day sabbath miss out on the new covenant relationship with God in Christ But for the last time Rocky, i will tell you whether it means anything to you or not if you refuse to keep any of God's commndments not just the love commandments - any of God's commandment including the 7th day sabbath, you do not have a relationship with God 1 John 2:3 He that saith, I know him (false relationship), and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. The sabbath keeping commandment is especially important in regards to a relationship with God Whether you understand or not - I am going to let you know the importance of "keeping all the commandments" including the 2 greatest commandments - the 10 commandments (including te 7th day sabbath keeping commandment) A covenant law is such that in return from the promise of God,we on our part accept to keep all his commandments I am thankful that when and if i do fall into sin upon sincere repentance, Galatians 3:29 King James Version (KJV) 29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. God first made a covenant with Abraham- Jesus Christ was the promised seed- God also showed Abraham the stars in the heaven (spiritual seed -spiritual descendents of faithful Abraham and like Abraham, we keep all the commandments of God under the new covenant relationship in Christ (christians) Since we who are in Christ are the spiritual seed of Abraham A covenant law is irrevocable since it is by promise- the condition in which the promise is activated is we keep our part of the deal by keeping the commandments of God We cannot add to it- (by keeping sunday as the sabbath) or subtract from it by ignoring the 7th day sabbath. Christians miss out on the relationship with God when they willfiully or ignorantly do not keep any of God's commandments. In this case the 7th day sabbath keeping commandment week in week out
  3. God's story- The truth of God's word is more important. My story is simply this I read the book called "God's plan for salvation: - I meditated on the bible verses which i either never understood before or never seen before and it hit me like a ton of rocks spiritually I repented because i could clearly see what God's word is showing me This is my story- what more can I tell you
  4. I feel that we are not getting anywhere twinky- if you want to find reasons why sabbath is insignificant, you will find them and we will be debating on this till the cows come home. I have done all i can but it seems some of the things I have said just goes over your head. If i say this, you will say that, if i say that, you will say some thing else- it continues without examining the point i am making and researching- it like's the ostrich that buried it's head in the sand- I dont see it (no offence- but it's not getti ng through to you) As i said earlier in light of bible verses in Exodus 20:8-11 and 1 John 3:4 and Matt 7:22, you will have to look on why sabbath is important and significant not the other way around- which is what you are doing where you constantly look for ways to argue your way out of the sabbath. If that's the way you want it, then go ahead, believe it you seem to belittle the 4th commandment- by saying the two greatest commandments are love your God and love your neighbour I am showing you that God is saying in 1 John 5:3 what the love of God is- i.e we keep His commandments (I dont how many times i have higlighted this for your attention) it doesnt seem to be having any effect at all) instead of focussing on this 1 John 5:3 to see why sabbath is significantly important, you start debating about architecture and statutory law I am not as good as you Twinky in finding out "legal loopholes- but the day will come when in front of Jesus where you will not have any loopholes Try arguing with Jesus like all the other christians who thought sabbath was insignificant Matt 7:22 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (lawlessness) What is inquity? Iniquity is sin and What is sin? Good question - see verse below 1 John 3:4 4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the trangression of the law (includes the 7th day sabbath) I may not be able to debate on you statutory law and what not but did you know Jesus Christ- the cornerstone is also called "The Lord of the sabbath" Shouldnt that indicate to the importance of the Lord of the Sabbath You completely ignored and side stepped again my comment on what Jesus said, "Sabbath was made for man" Why would God create the sabbath for man if it was going to be unimportant and insignificant" Just because the 2 greatest comandments are love God with all your heart and love your neighbour but does that necessarily mean that you can ignore the sabbath (4th commndment of God). How about stealing- thoult shalt not steal, why dont you count that as insignificant post crucifixion as well? So according to your argument that sabbath is a minor or "insignificant law" dependent on Loving God with all your heart Does that mean that sabbath has become insignificant???? No! You keep the sabbath because you love God. Keepingthe sabbath including the rest of the 9 commandments wih honesty and love is proof that you love and honour God (1 John 5:3). You asked for proof that the apostles and Jesus disciples place the same importance on sabbath post crucificion Well! try and argue your way around this one where it clearly shows the disciples placing the same importance in observing the sabbath. I wouldnt be surprised if you did a side step on this one Mark 15 42 And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, ( notice sabbath was approaching and in honouring sabbath-- a rest day they wanted to take down his body for burial 43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus. 43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus. 44 And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead. 45 And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph. 46 And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre. 47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.( so they could be back as soon as sabbath was over) Mark 16 1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. (The disciples of Jesus Christ delayed the embalming of their precious Lord Jesus Christ with sweet spices just because they wanted to honour the 7th day sabbath commandment How about that- does that not tell you the importance of sabbath keeping commandment post crucifixion) Could you please answer these questions below so I can see that you are not being evasive pay special attention to words in bold Question 1: Tell me something, why do you continually against 7th day sabbath keeping when the above verses show the importance of sabbath keeping and you have no biblical proof of the sabbath's insignificance. I have already explained your land sabbath contention and "within your towns/cities" argument of Ex 20:10 If you are going to argue against the 7th day sabbath commandment in the 10 commandments Do you mean to say, it is also not insignificant and unimportant if we continue to lie, steal and covet neighbours goods Why single out only the sabbath commandment as being unimportant post crucificixion?
  5. Why dont you keep going and read further - the next verse Matt 22: 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Does verse 40 say- just do the 2 greatest commandments and forget about the rest????. - I dont think so- that's not wwhat verse 40 is saying- it's saying that all the laws and commandments hang on the foundation which is love God with all your heart and love your neighbour. Come on- if went to live in a house- would you lop off the house from the foundation upwwards- no roof nothing -just only the foundation is there- sleep on the floor under open skies Of course- you need the whole house- and Jesus gives the whole picrture in vs 40 - On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Let me show howin what ways God is clewarly indicating a christian keeps the sabbth and also now that we have got the whole picture Twinky - let's delve what God says proves that you love God biblically 1 John 5:3 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments (includes 7th day sabbath): and his commandments are not grievous He is even telling us further His commandments are grievious- would you consider loving God, grievious- no! we love God but some of his commadments like sabbath is for some people burdensome so God is saying his commandments are not grievious If your father gave you a car- does he have to tell you, Twinky drive it- before you will drive it No! of course not- it is understood- you will thank you- take the keys and drive it Jesus clearly said- "the sabbath was made man" Why would God go to all the trouble of creating the sabbath for man if it is unnecessary It is for man to keep the sabbath and enjoy the sabbath as God intented it - freedom from the world, devoted to God a special day that He has commanded for our own benefit
  6. my friend - the words in red refers to pagan religious feasts not christian at all when i said "religious activity" i meant pagan religious activity- nothing to do with sabbath- pagans at that time had nothing to with sabbath context is christian converts who were former pagans- the issue was about food One last shot go to this link https://rcg.org/questions/p085.a.html and give it some thought: I don't belong to this church but I do believe they give a good explanation of the context "One man esteemeth one day" has got nothing to with sabbath or pagan holidays- it has got to do with the pagan practise of eating particular food on certain days- whether vegetarian or meat If you still cannot see what I am saying and what is being said and come to the conclusion: that it is referring to sabbth so be it- believe what you want to believe Let's just be friends- let's not go on about sabbath anymore- as i told you- no one can convince you of sabbath 7th day sabbath keeping is a spiritual decision and can only come from spiritual discernment> Let's just stop here- I am pretty sure that even if you went to the link above- it will make no difference and you will still maintain that Paul was talking about the sabbath. | You are welcome to belive want you want to believe, just dont talk to me on the 7th day sabbath keeping cmmandment any more Sayonara- if you have any "puny" jokes by all means. I am pretty sure I will be winding down on gsc bible discussions Regards Waxit
  7. Let's see who is evasive You have asked to explain Land sabbath- Iand how it's not practical to keep the land fallow and rested in the 7th year- I have explained it you have asked to explain Exodus 20:10- how's it's impractical for someone to be responsible for sabbath keeping in the whole "town"- (most versions say it's gate and the greek translation is "within the gates" - I have explained it I have asked you to explain: 1 John 5:3 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments(includes 7th day sabbayh): and his commandments are not grievous. You have not explained it (So who is being evasive???) I have asked you to explain: John 14: 21 He that hath my commandments,(includes 7th day sabbayh) and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. You have not explained it (So who is being evasive???)
  8. Actually you will have to prove why sabbath is insigficant in light of what God is clearly saying in the bible Just to set the record straight in regards to your comment above - you are right there are many verses that "appear" to present something different. The operative word being "appear" but every one of them has been proven to be either out of context/ not atually related to sabbath keeping or translation error when compared to the original greek. In light of the clear commandments from God (The ultimate authority)in Exodus 20:8-11, you should look for reasons why 7th day sabbath is important God clearly says in: 1John 2::3-4 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.(includes 7th day sabbath keeping) 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments (includes 7th day sabbath keeping) , is a liar, and the truth is not in him. I dont think you will be able to answer the above scriptures if you keep sunday (man made traditions) God's 4th commandment in the 10 commandments is very specific- the 7th day God never commanded sunday keeping. There was a special day, he sancified and created for mankind for man to devote time with Him (God) in rest, worship and fellowship and that is the 7th day sabbath (saturday-7th day of the week)
  9. I am answering your questions Twinky- I am not nit picking- I am answering your quesions- after i have answered your questions remember it's your turn to answer my questions- to be fair
  10. Look vpw- had a vey cunning way of getting people to believe him by hiding behind the word of God in a deceitful way I dont do that so dont compare me with vpw- he talks about integrity but himself is full of bs wwhat vpw says go here and see for yourself but when it comes to stuff that he doesnt want people to know or ignorant of for instance sabbath- he just takes it at face value or out of context- for instance one man esteemeth one day above another but when he wants someone to change their opinion on a generally accepted principle- he goes into detail - like reading it in context and all that- he's a very sly sewer rat I know that the calendar didnt exist in day #1 from the beginning of creation when the calendar system started with the earliest babylonian civilization- they simply adopted what God had set up day 1 to day 7 - it just continued that way. I suggest you google and do research on it- i am not the authority on calendars the days were given names and the months wwere given names once the roman calendar system started after the babylonian calendar systen- this is mu understanding the romans started giving names so day 1- came o be called sunday- day of the sun in the english version- the day the pagans nominated as the day for sunworship day 7 the sabbath day commanded by God came to be called saturday in the english version- agian this is my understanding If you are going to be rude with me again- i will simply ignore your posts ok- i am trying to be helpful and patient as i can- i cannot assume that people will know everything- if you look at how i worded the sentence "you know about the book of daniel right? I dont mean to put you down I am just confirming that you know the book of daniel right and you are aware of the fact that he enquired with God right and for you to consider the fact that christians who have the indwelling Holy Spirit can talk to God If you are going to pick a fight with me for every little thing - then i will just say goodbye
  11. I am looking in bible hub now It looks like most versions are saying; it's gates rather than towns- These are just the first few versions that came up - whether it's towns or gates- it's important to get it translated of what it means in original greek- The greek language is pretty accurate while the english translators sometimes just monkey around and that's why we cannot tell the difference until we check in the greek interlinear or lexicon etc New International Version but the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. King James Bible But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: Darby Bible Translation but the seventh day is the sabbath of Jehovah thy God: thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy bondman, nor thy handmaid, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates. World English Bible but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahweh your God. You shall not do any work in it, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your livestock, nor your stranger who is within your gates; Young's Literal Translation and the seventh day is a Sabbath to Jehovah thy God; thou dost not do any work, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man-servant, and thy handmaid, and thy cattle, and thy sojourner who is within thy gates, -- I wouldnt be surprised if the word "towns" might be translated into gates in the original greek It would be really difficult to enforce the sawbbath in a place where you dont have a control as in an individual household. However sabbath in those days in the israeli township is if i am not mistaken a religious and civil law much like friday mosque prayers are for the islamic middle east. So if that's the case- yes 7th day sabbath keeping can be a rule of law When i go to strongs lexicon- this is what i get? within אֲשֶׁ֥֣ר (’ă·šer) Pronoun - relative Strong's Hebrew 834: 1) (relative part.) 1a) which, who 1b) that which 2) (conj) 2a) that (in obj clause) 2b) when 2c) since 2d) as 2e) conditional if your gates. בִּשְׁעָרֶֽ֔יךָ‪‬ (biš·‘ā·re·ḵā) Preposition-b | Noun - masculine plural construct | second person masculine singular Strong's Hebrew 8179: 1) gate 1a) gate (of entrance) 1b) gate (of space inside gate, i.e. marketplace, public meeting place) 1b1) city, town 1c) gate (of palace, royal castle, temple, court of tabernacle) 1d) heaven To me within your gates- i.e space inside, implies somehting that is within your control God would never expect you to command sabbath keeping over an area that you do not have control of. only within your gates where you have control I will get back to you on the land sabbath- that's a tricky one Regards Waxit
  12. I am not judging them. i am just saying they dont keep the biblical sabbath that's all If the God of the bible says turn up on saturday, if you are going to honour him, will you turn up on sunday? So they are pefrectly entitled to keep their sunday sabbath but it's not what the God of the bible wanted- right heart but wrong day appointment was made
  13. God still loves you no matter - He even tells us to love our enemies (You are not an enemy to me-please don't take it the wrong way) but God is also a God of Justice
  14. which version are you using- the kjv simply says gates. I would assume these are people within one's household
  15. I shall get back to you on this twinky- i need to do some research so give me some time - I can tell you one thing though that one of the reasons is you maybe sticking to the strict interpretations of the judaism (religion og the pharisees- man made traditions) but you have quoted bible verses that i need to examine- srange i dont know if you are responsible for the whole town- where did you get that from- anyway, let me look into it after i give you an explanation for this, will you then explain your understanding of the 2 bible verses i quoted that i asked for you to explain
