The quality of the Sabbath is often determined by the amount of preparation that goes into it.
In the scripture, the day before the onset of Shabbat is called "Preparation Day" (Mark 15:42; Luke 23:54; John 19:31). To be able to keep the Sabbath properly, adequate preparation is necessary which means planning ahead. Preparation to avoid working on the day and have it free from work-related activities, needs to be done on the Day before every Sabbath.
All provisions to last you until Sabbath ends at dusk (sunset), which is the next time available to purchase them. As business activities are prohibited, foresight may be needed to care for events or payments due on the day to avoid such transactions that involve handling money.
The concern of our loving Heavenly Father embraced both the male and female in their respective need of rest when He ordained the Sabbath, instructing that not only should there be no 'work' but also no lighting of fires which was the means of cooking and heating for the home in those days. He thus encompassed both male and female roles in the household.
The necessary preparation involves preparing special meals in advance, organizing, cleaning, and most of all, arranging our schedules for prayer and time together or alone if you are observing by yourself. Friends and relatives may need to be advised of your intention to keep the Sabbath.
The Sabbath keeper should not work on the seventh day by being kindly communicative with employers about their wishes and/or looking for an alternative vocation depending on the situation. Self employment is encouraged. If a person cannot avoid regular work on Shabbat, they definitely should be praying and seeking for Yahuwah to provide an alternative income. Setting time aside on the Preparation Day to get your things in order and ready for the Sabbath needs to be a priority. Shalom.
My dad read this book to us as a family when I was a kid. I wanted to cut my ears off I hated sitting through the “torture” of it so much! 😆 Now, I’m thankful for the seed that was sown into my life. I asked if he could send it to me to read, he did one better and sent me my own copy. Looking forward to reading it myself and getting some deep wisdom for my little family and for our church family at @therivercma //

Samhain - A Morte do Deus
31 de outubro no hemisfério Norte
1º de maio no hemisfério Sul
Samhain (pronuncia-se Sou-ein), festejado em 31 de outubro no hemisfério Norte e em 1º de maio no hemisfério Sul, é o Ano-Novo dos Bruxos. Esse dia sagrado é conhecido por inúmeros nomes. Para muitos, talvez, o mais conhecido seja Halloween. Para nós, Bruxos, é a festa na qual honramos nossos ancestrais e aqueles que já tenham partido para o País de Verão.
Essa é a noite em que o véu que separa o mundo material do mundo espiritual encontra-se mais fino e o contato com nossos ancestrais torna-se mais fácil. É também o momento tradicional para celebrar a última das colheitas e se preparar para o Verão.
O poder de magia pode ser sentido no ar, nessa noite. O Outro Mundo se coaduna com o nosso conforme a luz do Sol baixa e o crepúsculo chega. Os espíritos daqueles que já partiram para o outro plano são mais acessíveis durante a noite de Samhain.
Samhain ocorre no pico do Outono. É o tempo do ano em que o frio cresce e a morte vaga pela Terra. O Sol está enfraquecendo cada vez mais rapidamente, a sombra cresce e as folhas das árvores estão caindo, numa preparação ao Inverno que chegará. Essa é a última colheita, o tempo em que os antigos povos da Europa sacrificavam seus gados e preservavam sua carne para o Inverno, pois esses animais não podiam sobreviver em grande escala nesse período do ano devido ao frio vindouro. Só uma pequena parte, os mais viris e fortes, era mantida para o ano seguinte.
Samhain é a noite em que o Velho Rei morre e a Deusa Anciã lamenta sua ausência nas próximas seis semanas. O Sol está em seu ponto mais baixo no horizonte, de acordo com as medições feitas através das antigas pedras da Britânia e da Irlanda, razão pela qual os Celtas escolheram esse Sabbat, em vez de Yule, para representar o Ano-Novo. Para os Antigos Celtas, esse dia sagrado dividida o ano em duas estações, Inverno e Verão. Samhain era o dia no qual começavam o Ano-Novo celta e o Inverno, por isso era um tempo ideal para términos e começos.

“Busy is a drug that a lot of people are addicted to”. ~ Rob Bell
This place I call home, this man that I love; they’ve both taught me what it looks like to
My constant “to-do list” falls by the wayside when I take in these moments to breathe in what I have been so generously blessed with.
It’s not lazy to stop. It’s a command.
To honor the sabbath we have been given.
To sit in gratitude for the One who sits on high and looks down low.
Peace, be still.
We'd buzzed Jeff's door and walked away when nobody answered, then got talking with the neighbour who was sweeping gumnuts.
After a while Jeff emerged.
"Did you ring my bell?" he asked. "What've you got?"
Ella kept speaking to his neighbour while I told him about Eastward Missions and showed the group shots in the back of the cookbook.
"These guys are a cult," Jeff exclaimed to his neighbour.
I laughed it off and kept explaining what we do.
Ella came over after she'd said goodbye to his neighbour.
"Sorry, I realised that you guys aren't a cult," Jeff told us.
He was a born again Christian. We were talking about UFOs, Nephilim, fallen angels - all that kind of thing. Really interesting.
"Come inside," he invited us.
Jeff talked with us for ages. He was an intelligent, switched on guy; kinda intense. We reviewed the law and the Sabbath, and some prophecy too. Everything was a Sabbath rest now, according to Jeff, so we didn't need the day itself.
But when we went over the difference between the ceremonial and moral law - he totally understood.
"Yeah, you're right," Jeff said. "The Sabbath's in the Bible and Saturday's the right day if you want to keep it!"
In the end he took a copy of The Great Controversy. That was the best part! It took some persuading though...
Before we left, I showed Jeff the No Night There music video (from this year's Music Camp). Then he showed us some of his singing - he had quite a nice voice. - Emmanuel and Ella in Brighton, 17/09/18
Mark of the Beast
Revelation 16:2 and 19:20 cite the "mark of the beast" as a sign that identifies those who worship the beast out of the sea ( Rev 13:1 ). This beast is usually identified as the antichrist. This mark is first mentioned in 13:16-17, where it is imposed on humanity by the beast out of the earth ( 13:11 ). This second beast is the false prophet ( 19:20 ), who forces the worship of the antichrist and brands those who do so with the mark. This mark is equivalent to the beast's name or number ( 13:17 ; cf. 14:11 ). This enigmatic number is announced in 13:18 as 666.
Thousands Of Swedes Are Inserting Microchips Under Their Skin
The news say, “ Technology continues to get closer and closer to our bodies, from the phones in our pockets to the smartwatches on our wrists. Now, for some people, it's getting under their skin.
In Sweden, a country rich with technological advancement, thousands have had microchips inserted into their hands.
The chips are designed to speed up users' daily routines and make their lives more convenient accessing their homes, offices and gyms is as easy as swiping their hands against digital readers.
They also can be used to store emergency contact details, social media profiles or e-tickets for events and rail journeys within Sweden.” How long until this is actually enforced by authorities?
I believe this to be a disguise of the truth mark which I believe it to be the Sunday worship and not keeping the true Sabbath. But can there be perhaps a connection to these two?

(Express) Japan has been struck by an earthquake with a 5.0 magnitude off the east coast of the country, close to Fukushima. The earthquake had a depth of 46.6km and hit at 10:47 am universal time (11.47am BST). There has been an increase in seismic activity in the last 24 hours along the Ring of Fire – the Pacific
plate which sees the most earthquakes and most active volcanoes. An earthquake also struck Japan’s north island last night at a depth of 67km and a magnitude of 4.4. Japan lies in the Ring of Fire, which is a major area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where earthquakes and volcanoes are common. ——

After a fun but crazy day yesterday, it's so good to be home. Autumn sunshine, fresh flowers, rest...these are a few of my favorite things.
