G-d's calendar: 24th day, 4th month, year 5771

Ezekiel 18:20
The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

Romans 2:5,6
But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of G-d; Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

Anyone who believes they are sick or poor because of the sin of Adam and Eve is mistaken. According to Scripture, because of Adam and Eve's choice, sin entered the world, but also according to Scripture, humanity continues to choose to sin, and the consequences for sin fall to the one that makes the choice to sin.

G-d's calendar: 17th day, 4th month, year 5771

Judges 21:25
In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

Colossians 2:8
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Messiah.

We are clinging to a great deal of tradition in our beliefs. Not only are we clinging to age old traditions, but we are incorporating more human philosophy into spiritual beliefs and calling ti doctrine. That is wrong! We justify, we rationalize, and we are moving farther away from G-d's Word and His truth. We claim G-d uses a myriad of our human traditions . . . and don't even get me started on Christian Psychology. It is time for us all to recognize and separate G-d's truth from man's tradition.

G-d's calendar: 11th day, 4th month, year 5771

Genesis 3:22, 23
And YHWH G-d said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore YHWH G-d sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

Revelation 21:27
And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Redemption has been purchased by G-d's own Son, the perfect Lamb. G-d has provided our redemption, He is our Redeemer and those that have been redeemed, our names are recorded in the Lamb's book of life. With redemption; has come the invitation, back to the Garden.

G-d's calendar: 10th day, 4th month, year 5771

Psalm 119:11
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee.

James 4:17
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

This reference in James paints the portion of the Psalms with a pretty broad brush. It's become quite popular in religious circles to discuss and preach about the sins of the world and just how unG-dly unbelievers are. From early in Genesis, we find that unbelievers have always been unG-dly and disobedient to HIM. What we need to do, those that call ourselves believers, is to look in the mirror and realize we aren't doing all we know to be doing and that also is sin. Just as real a sin as those committed by those who don't have G-d's Word in their heart.

G-d's calendar: 7th day, 4th month, year 5771

Leviticus 13:9
When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought unto the priest;

James 5:14, 15
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of Y'hshuwah: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and YHWH shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Our beliefs and opinions should be based upon facts, rather than maintain the "opinion" that our beliefs define the facts. Both of these passages were written by the brothers of High Priests. Moses, the brother of Aaron, G-d's first earthly High Priest and James, brother of Y'hshuwah, our everlasting High Priest. Both passages clearly indicate illness is a matter to be taken to G-d, HE is our healer.

G-d's calendar: 6th day, 4th month, year 5771

Psalm 90:4
For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

II Peter 3:8
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with YHWH as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Now that the "scopes trial" has been resurrected from the opposite perspective, let's take a moment to consider . . . Some are introducing the theory that "Intelligent Design" may include these Scriptural references indicating a "belief" that a day in Genesis was more than 24 hours long. I would like to introduce the fact that these Scriptures indicate G-d is an eternal being that is Supreme. He created a seven day week. Perhaps if those claiming to believe HE is the Creator observed HIS seventh day for what it was created to be, the rest of the theories would simply fall away.
