In Spirit, and In Truth!

Posted By on September 22, 2012

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Elohim is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:23,24)

In many Bibles, these words appear in red, because they were spoken directly by our Messiah.

Most of us never question the things our pastors say, but the truth is easy to verify.

“Christmas” was instituted hundreds of years before Messiah was born, to commemorate the birth of the sungod at the winter solstice… December 25th when our Roman calendars were established. Messiah never told us to celebrate His birthday, and doing so on the date of a pagan god is simply wrong.

“Easter” comes from the German name (Eostra) of the fertility goddess Asherah, wife of the sungod, and the most notorious false goddess found in scripture. The date for celebrating “Easter” is calculated so that it never coincides with Passover – the day Messiah actually died, and the feast scripture commands us to keep “forever, throughout your generations, no matter where you live”.

Sunday worship was mandated by Roman Emperor Constantine, about 300 years after Messiah walked the earth. Messiah, his Apostles, and the early church observed the 7th day sabbath, as commanded by scripture, instead. Constantine, who had “committed to the invincible sun” printed on his coins, made no mention of the Messiah or His resurrection in the edict that made Sabbath-keeping a crime.

Pastors teach that we no longer need to follow our creator’s instructions, because “the Law” was done away with. This is exactly the opposite of what Messiah said: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17-20)

Heaven and earth have not yet passed away!

“But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” (Matthew 15:9, also in red…)
