Zec 14:20In that day shall there be upon
the bells of the horses, HOLINESS
UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in
the LORD'S house shall be like the
bowls before the altar.

Finally, the advent of Christ in the
New Millenium restores the sanctity
of the Holy City.

"Qadesh L'Y@hovah": HOLINESS UNTO
THE LORD

The Jews by tradition will not utter
the ineffable NAME of God, even
transcribing the word, "God" (G-d).
Yet, these weak gestures do not
compare to the true works of worship
and holiness. The NAME of the LORD
is to be PRAISED! By eliminating it,
or being afraid to even write it out,
it is a pretense, in my opinion.
It is not the outwards appearance,
the washing of the pots and vessels,
and the works that are to be seen
outwardly, but, what state of
holiness exists in truth and in
true devotion.

That's why the pots in the LORD'S
House are used in metaphor in
this verse. We are the containers
of God's essence and Holy Spirit.
We have lived existences of wearing
outwards religion, without having
the clean pure worship of God in
the LAW. We cannot dismiss the
LAW or throw it away. The
LAW is our covenant with God,
and just like man's laws, we
are under obligation to observe
them.

If someone is stopped by a cop
and tests .81 on a breathylizer
for alcohol, they can't get away
with saying that they're big
enough to sustain that amount
of liquor without being drunk,
just because they think the
law is over-reaching or wrong.
If our justice is measured by
the greatest good, how much
more are we to respect God's
LAW?

We may think we do that, but,
the Saturday Sabbaths, the
three main festival feasts, etc.,
are in the law. Many wiseguys
will point out how slaves and
other anachronistic concepts
are in the old Law, and therefore
the LAW refers to a time past.
Oh really? The LAW may
address situations of timely
concern, but, the LAW is
immutable.

We all have missed the mark, and
yet, we call ourselves people of God.
When confronted with the error
of Christmas, Ishtar/Easter and
other pagan harlotry in the church,
they boldly assert their liberty,
citing the New Testament and
Paul's encouragement to not
let anyone take away your liberty
in regards to Sabbaths and
other observances. What a crock.
Paul was encouraging people to
not let others influence how they
continue to worship the God of
the Sabbath by conducting
services, not in worshipping
pagan deities by Christ's holy
name.

Every sin is framed by an outrageous
distortion of Scripture, and then
propagated to the ignorant and
vulnerable generations of sheep.
Just as forbidding Jews to utter
the Name of God eliminates their
praise to Him, changing the days
and sabbaths are another trick
to weaken the worship of man
towards their Savior God.

I'm not saying that I know how
another loves God, or feels inside,
but, their works suggest a blindness
towards even considering that
Jesus of Nazareth changed the world,
fulfilled the promises of Torah, and
in all ways accomplished the mission
of God in victory, as prophesied by
His prophets in the Old Testament,
the Tanakh.

As I've ranted about, Christians have
not fared better, turning the holiness
of Christ's birth into an occasion to
continue their party season. Instead
of putting away the traditions of
paganism, they combined the religions,
even going so far as to rename idols
and "christen" Mary as the new
Diana.

It is ironic that after the resurrection,
by historians, Mary went with the
Gospel and Revelator John (I believe
her youngest son) to Ephesus to live.
This is where Diana's main temple stood.
Mary was an obvious contrast to the
milli-breasted fertility statue that
represented ignorance and opposition
to Judaism.

The holiness of Mary and John withstood
the pagan mythologies, and I guarantee
that no contemporary Ephesian believed
Mary was the living Diana. Even though
the profitable craftsmen who cranked
out Diana statues were suddenly without
trade, for at least the First Century,
there was a new paradigm of holiness
that was established, overthrowing
the deities that competed with YHWH.

But, how quickly the old religion was
resurrected in combining Mary and
Diana, Jesus and the pagan deity,
the Apostles into the pantheon of
lesser gods, etc. It's not just Rome
who was guilty of corrupting
Christianity. Even after the
so-called "Reformation" began,
there was no attempt to restore
the LAW , or adhere to the commandments
expressed to Moses and commanded
to be observed, like the true Sabbath,
and the true days of worship, especially
the three sacred times: Passover, Weeks,
and Tabernacles.

In Zech 14, after plainly spelling out
world judgment, the new order is
initiated with a decree to partake
in Tabernacles, considered the most
sacred feast of the ancient Hebrew
religion. Now, there is a true LAW
and obedience to Torah, not just
gestures and lip service, or sweeping
generalities from the Church that
Christ fulfilled the LAW, so we
don't need to abide by it.

It's ridiculous really. Christ celebrated
Passover, a feast that was commanded
for all generations. Christ participated
in Tabernacles. I concentrate on these
2 because they both consist of primarily
one week apiece of strict observance,
not unpleasant in the least. The festival
of Weeks or Pentecost are paired with
the Spring observance of Passover,
the way the holiest day of the year,
Yom Kippur, The Atonement, is followed
in the Fall by the holiest week of
observation, Tabernacles, where
every 7 years, the LAW was read
aloud, and God was honored.

God is not honored by wearing a
phylactery of minute writing on
our heads and arms. He meant for
those words of the LAW to be in
our hearts and heads, and for them
to mean something, not an amulet
to wear. God is not forbidden to
approach, or for us to speak his
NAME in worship. His NAME/S
appears all over the Scripture
to be praised and seen.

The Jews were given the LAW and
commandments, yet they had limited
value, according to the historical
accounts of what they chose to do
instead, which was to constantly
prefer the pagan gods and/ or
combine their ceremonies and
customs into Judaism. Solomon
did this on a national scale, despite
all his wisdom and light.

We have plenty of liberty in Christ
and as worshippers of God, but, we
fail to understand that the only
unpardonable sin is spiritual
adultery, yet, most of us have
slipped into that region by merely
going to church. Sunday Sabbath
is a sin of monumental proportion,
not for worshipping on Sunday,
because that's okay, but, in calling
another day the "SABBATH" when
only God can ordain a Sabbath,
and HE ordained it to be on
Saturday.

Only God can be followed, and
he gave man a handful, even less,
THREE observances a year to
make an effort to adhere to, but,
not observing them is far less of
a sin than replacing them with
pagan traditional days of material
excess and indulgence. It's pouring
salt on that wound.

Any fundamentalist Christian will
chirp that this or that is not in the
Bible and therefore not tolerable.
They will swallow a camel and
strain at a gnat. They have also
thrown out Tabernacles, probably
the most important and only
eternally commemorated commanded
feast, and replaced it with Nimrod's
birthday at the winter solstice.
Sin upon sin upon sin. They cut
down trees, deck them in gold
and silver and put the star of
molech, the pagan deity on top.
They may say these are now
Christian symbols, but, are they?

Where did Jesus give the Apostles
gifts for believing, other than
the gifts of compassion, healing
the sick, preaching the Word of
God, and speaking the language
of the nation they needed to
communicate with? When did
Jesus encourage excessive partying
and mad over-eating of sweets,
fats and drink?

By contrast, Tabernacles was a festival
of FRUITS, where the symbolic citrine
was waved in appreciation for its'
miraculous properties of health and
nutrition.

When the Kingdom is restored to the
way it was intended to be, there will
be holiness. We will observe this
symbolic festival of Tabernacles, which
replaces the times of jealousy and sin
in the pagan mainstays of Christianity.
Ironically, as I've written, I believe
Christ probably was born on Yom
Kippur, the Day of Atonement, and
five days later, the Tabernacles celebrates
his birth as the firstfruit of God.

Here what Jeremiah wrote about
this:

Jeremiah 10

1Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh
unto you, O house of Israel:

2Thus saith the LORD,Learn not the way of
the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs
of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

3For the customs of the people are vain: for one
cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the
hands of the workman, with the axe.

4They deck it with silver and with gold; they
fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it
move not.

5They are upright as the palm tree, but speak
not: they must needs be borne, because they
cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot
do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

6Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD;
thou art great, and thy name is great in might.

7Who would not fear thee, O King of nations?
for to thee doth it appertain: forasmuch as among
all the wise men of the nations, and in all their
kingdoms, there is none like unto thee.

8But they are altogether brutish and foolish:
the stock is a doctrine of vanities.

9Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish,
and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman,
and of the hands of the founder: blue and purple
is their clothing: they are all the work of cunning
men.

10But the LORD is the true God, he is the living
God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the
earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not
be able to abide his indignation.

11Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that
have not made the heavens and the earth, even
they shall perish from the earth, and from under
these heavens.

12He hath made the earth by his power, he hath
established the world by his wisdom, and hath
stretched out the heavens by his discretion.

13When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude
of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the
vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth;
he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth
forth the wind out of his treasures.

14Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every
founder is confounded by the graven image: for
his molten image is falsehood, and there is no
breath in them.

15They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the
time of their visitation they shall perish.

16The portion of Jacob is not like them: for he
is the former of all things; and Israel is the rod
of his inheritance: The LORD of hosts is his
name.

17Gather up thy wares out of the land, O
inhabitant of the fortress.

18For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will sling
out the inhabitants of the land at this once, and
will distress them, that they may find it so.

19Woe is me for my hurt! my wound is grievous;
but I said, Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it.

20My tabernacle is spoiled, and all my cords are
broken: my children are gone forth of me, and
they are not: there is none to stretch forth my
tent any more, and to set up my curtains.

21For the pastors are become brutish, and have
not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not
prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered.

22Behold, the noise of the bruit is come, and
a great commotion out of the north country,
to make the cities of Judah desolate, and a
den of dragons.

23O LORD, I know that the way of man is not
in himself: it is not in man that walketh to
direct his steps.

24O LORD, correct me, but with judgment;
not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing.

25Pour out thy fury upon the heathen that
know thee not, and upon the families that
call not on thy name: for they have eaten up
Jacob, and devoured him, and consumed him,
and have made his habitation desolate.
