Sabbath Message by Jean- Guy Dionne

Sabbath 26/13/28/120

Dear Friends,

It is important for us all to examine our positions as we are heading for the New Year, especially the month of sanctification, which is the month of Nisan. “Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to your faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you? — Unless indeed you fail to meet the test!” (2Cor.13: 5 RSV)

You all know the procedure full well for those mature in the faith and for those in association with the Church. We who are committed to the work have an obligation to it, meaning to the work, the Church and the world. We constantly need to remind each other and ourselves of the keeping of God’s Law and to provoke one another unto love and good works (Heb. 10:24), and let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works (see also Eph. 2:10).

The blue ribbon that Israel of old was commanded to wear at the corners of their inner garments (not the visible garment like some today profess it to be) was specifically for the purpose of not doing their (or our) own thing but the will of Eloah.

In Numbers 15:37- 41 we read:
The LORD said to Moses, 38 "Speak to the people of Israel, and bid them to make tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put upon the tassel of each corner a cord of blue; 39 and it shall be to you a tassel to look upon and remember all the commandments of the LORD, to do them, not to follow after your own heart and your own eyes, which you are inclined to go after wantonly. 40 So you shall remember and do all my commandments, and be holy to your God. 41 I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God."

Please let us all pay close attention to this command.

We all know that the commandments of Eloah are holy, good and righteousness (Romans 7:12). And we all know what the scriptures say in (Luke 21:19): “In your patience possessed ye your souls”. (KJV)

Possessed; 2932 ktaomai ktaomai ktah’-om-ahee

a primary verb; v

AV-possess 3, purchase 2, provide 1, obtain 1; 7

1) to acquire, get, or procure a thing for one’s self, to possess
1a) to marry a wife

Note that 2Corinthians 6:4 states the ministers of God are to have patience in afflictions, in necessities and in distress, and in Proverbs 11:14 where it says, “Where no counsel is the people fall but in the multitude of counselors there is safety”, and also Proverbs 24:6: “For by counsel shall make thy war and in multitude of counselors there is safety”.

In closing the Sabbath message I would like to say to all the brethren from the least to the greatest, “What does it profit you to have all knowledge and to understand all mysteries and though you have all faith that you can remove mountain and have no love you are nothing”.

Take the time to read 1Corinthians 13, and as you are reading it bring out the measuring stick and compare yourself to it and the Law. May the peace and comfort of ELOAH be with you all through Jesus the Christ.

May you have a good 2nd month of Adar.
