I refer to him as Jesus because that us what is in my bible and I grew up learning, but after looking into the name, I will not discredit his actual name ( Yahushah/Yeshua) when he walked this earth either.


You get it.

The Father has your attention.

You're close SAAN. Yahu(part of God's name)+ shua(saves)=God saves.

Hebrew can be translated or transliterated. In this case transliterated.
Hebrew>>>>>>>>> Greek>>>>>>Latin>>>>>>English
Yahushua>>>>'ee-ay-soos Ἰησοῦς>>Iesus>>>>Iesus, later Jesus with Tyndale printing.

The difficulty was the Hebrew to Greek transliteration since there are no Greek letters to make those sounds. They did the best they could.

Hope this helps.

You are instructed to be UNLIKE the pagan, not to learn the ways of the pagan.

It is that simple.



Jeremiah 10


Read it.

Go read the 4th Commandment.


It is a day of rest, not a day of worship.

And you are commanded to observe.



Exodus 20:8



8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 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. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

I wonder what joy Isaac had one he thought he was about to be murdered by his father? On the orders of God. I wonder what joy the residence of Egypt had, when God gave them all those plagues little things like killing first born children.

You're talking about that God right?

Sure, Sunday is a day of obligation. But, there is a daily mass.

My point is that God is merciful and will not penalize people for trivial stuff. In fact I can go to mass Saturday evening and it will count for Sunday.

Saturday evening is the beging of sunday.

The day begins in the evening, at sundown.
