I would like to introduce a new and different doctrine. I call it Comprehensive Scriptural Investigation – Doctrine of Definitions or CSI – DOD. The only thing this doctrine teaches is a method of studying the Word of God. You will need to acquire the King James Version of the Bible, The Strong’s Concordance of the Bible, and a Standard English Dictionary (international edition) as your weapons of mass learning. [Do not worry about the DOE, FBI, ATF, and/or the state police. They shouldn’t invade your study, burn you down, or take your children if someone from the Vatican calls Homeland Security on you, and the CIA has little or no interest in truth.] Look up the Greek and Hebrew definitions of key verbs and nouns as you study. Dissect entire passages with definitions if they seem confusing. Study all the passages related to words such as soul, spirit, body, salvation, grace, Sabbath, and any other word as a subject of interest. With sincere study and prayer, God will reveal his mystery. (Rev. 10:7)
Coming out of Babylon will be the most difficult thing that God’s children will ever have to do. If we truly love the Lord, we will do as he tells us and keep his commandments. (Jn. 14:15, 15:10, Ex. 20) We know the fourth commandment is to remember and keep the Sabbath. If the commandments were nailed to the cross, as some do teach, can we commit murder, adultery, theft, or covet? People say, “It doesn’t make any difference which day we keep.” That isn’t what Jesus said! Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath. (Mk. 2:27-28) Who made the first day of the week (Sunday) a worship day? Not being sure, which day would you bet on? How difficult would it be to just switch days? (1 Jn. 5:3) People say, “Thank God it’s Friday!” Why? Saturday is indeed the Sabbath Day of rest. Are they ready to rest? Maybe, but I am reasonably sure that most are only ready to just party – party – party. At least they’re too hung-over to sun worship!
Most Christian doctrines teach that if you don’t get saved in this life, you will die and spend eternal life in everlasting hell fire. The Bible does not teach that! It makes God out to be a tyrant, and God has more mercy than that. Others teach a heaven and hell with a purgatory halfway house with some method of working through purgatory to get out of hell, then into heaven. It is all crap! Every human being that has ever lived and died is dead (sleeping – REST IN PEACE) but will be resurrected. The first resurrection is of the elect to eternal life because the second death has no power, but the second resurrection is to judgment, and the second death will have power. (Rev. 20) If you are not found written in its book of life, you will surely die the second death. It will not be painless! There will be the gnashing of teeth. (Matt. 13:37-43) Eternal life should be the most important thing for man to consider, and not just something easily tossed to the wind
[2020/2021 Revision Addition]
Just in case you may be interested in the day when Jesus Christ was born in the flesh in 5 BC, you will have to trust in some things the Lord said in John 7:21-23 and elsewhere in the Bible. This is the only place in the Gospels that circumcision was used in defense of some of the things He did on the sabbath day He was Lord of. The Religious Right of today are not any different from those of yesteryears. Jesus rebuked them for their hypocrisy, doctrines, and traditions on many things throughout the Gospels; however, in this case I believe He used a very personal experience of Biblical proportions.
Jesus was born in the mid to late spring of the year. Jesus said that He was Lord, even of the sabbath day. (Mark 2:28) Wouldn’t it be logical that He would be born on the same day of the week as His Ascension Day? He picked up His life again (resurrected) on a weekly sabbath day. It was his custom to preach on the sabbath days. (Luke 4:16,31, 6:1-10) If John the Baptist’s custom was to preach and baptize on the sabbath days also, then Jesus would have been baptized on a sabbath day too! It was also the custom of the Apostles to preach the good news on the sabbath days as well. (Acts 13:14,27,42,44, 16:13, 17:2, 18:4)
According to the Biblical Circumcision Law (Leviticus 12:1-4), Jesus would have been born seven days prior to His circumcision. The sabbath can be either the weekly or one of the annual seven. If Jesus would have returned to the Father on the same sabbath dayas He was born, the only Sabbath that His circumcision could consistently be on from year to year is Pentecost, the third annual sabbath of the year and always on the first day of the week – Sunday. Weekly and the seven annual sabbaths were all normally called sabbaths, even the High Day – first annual sabbath of the new sacred calendar year which began in the spring.
Jesus’ birthday would be the weekly Sabbath Day seven days prior to His circumcision. He ascended back to His Father seven days prior to Pentecost. Therefore, His birthday would consistently be seven days prior to Pentecost from year to year. This year, Pentecost is May 31, 2020. Carefully read Lev. 23:5-6 and 15-16. This year Jesus’ birthday would be May 23rd and it will fall on the sixth weekly sabbath day after Passover which is seven days before Pentecost (the one and only annual Sabbath always on a Sunday) every year for all eternity. Read Lev. 12:1-4, Luke 2:21-24 and Acts 1:1-5 and do the Math! [7 + 33 = 40] Forty is a significate number in scripture! I hear Christians say that Christmas should be every day! I think and believe we should keep the Lord’s birthday every week! It is His weekly sabbath and commandment! Just something else to think about. If you truly love the Lord, prove it! (John 14:15,21, 15:10; Matt 5:19, 19:17; Rev. 12:17, 14:12, 22:14; 1John 5:2-3; 2John 6)
In 2020, Jesus’ earthly birthday in the flesh was sabbath day May 23rd. In 2021, it was May 15th. In 2022, it will be the sixth weekly sabbath after Passover. NOT EASTER!
