   (Genesis 1:1) In the beginning; before the creation of the universe and the earth. The Heavenly Father and Son created angelic beings; patterned to reflect the character of the Eternal Son.
(Job 38:4–6; 7-9) The Angels rejoiced when the universe burst into existence. All Wisdom and knowledge is a gift from the Creator. The angels increased their talents as they worked with the physical creation. Lucifer was spiritually powerful, exerting influence and leadership. He desired to replace the Son and motivated a third of the angels to rebel against the heavenly government of the  Father and Son. This great rebellion brought destruction upon the creation.

(Genesis 1:2)   The earth became chaotic and lifeless; darkness covered surface and the Spirit of the Eternal hovered over the waters. In six days the Heavenly Father renewed the face of the earth. 
(Psalms 104:30)
   The climax on the six day is the creation of mankind; completely formed and gifted with knowledge of the laws of creation and their creator. When the first man and woman opened their eyes they were greeted by Logos; the Eternal Son of the Heavenly Father. Logos performed the marriage of Adam and Eve in a garden paradise. Logos pronounced a blessing upon the first husband and wife; saying “be fruitful and multiply” and “Carefully govern  the earth”.    
(Genesis 1:28) 
  The seventh day of renewing creation The Heavenly Father rested from all his work. There is a mystery hidden behind the obvious pleasure expressed from within the Father's heart by His establishment of everything as very good. The Hebrew word; very denotes the quality of greatness and the action of exceeding an earlier event. The word; good conceives a moral character that nurtures life in a spiritually protected environment. The spiritual danger that threatened the renewed creation is portrayed by the metaphor of the “Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil”. 
  
  Logos walked in the garden paradise with Adam and Eve. Logos spoke the words of Truth and there was Peace and  Love in their Fellowship. The Spirit of the Heavenly Father surrounded them. Adam and Eve realized the spiritual nurturing that held their hearts in unity.  Like the fruit from the Tree of Life. The first husband and wife tasted of eternity in a relationship with their Heavenly Father. The Tree of Life symbolizes the spiritual food that nourishes agreement with the Father's commandments and fills the hunger for unity, oneness and True Love.

The Wave Sheaf represents the Eternal meeting Israel and begins a counting sequence of 7 Sabbath's that culminate at the Feast of Pentecost. The Wave Sheaf also portrays the Messiah leading people out of Sin. Yeshua the Messiah is the perfect example of Oneness with the Heavenly Father; which is True Holiness!!! The symbolism of the wave sheaf ; pictures baptism and the putting to death of the sinful nature in people.  (1Cor 10:1-2; 3-4; Ro 6:3-4; 5; 6-7)
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Le23.15  (Le 23: 15; 16)
The High Sabbath of Pentecost is also called the Feast of First Fruits. This Feast celebrates the harvest of people that Truly receive in their hearts; the Law of the Eternal.

The Festival of  Tabernacles is a High Sabbath representing the restoring of the Kingdom of Eloheyem the Father on earth; and will begin the promised fulfillment of Eternal Rest; from the struggle against Sin.

APOSTLES & SABBATH


logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac1.12  (Ac 1:12)
Yeshua walked with his disciples from Jerusalem to the Mount of Olives on the Sabbath.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac13.13  (Ac 13:13; 14; 15)
The apostle Paul entered the synagogues on the Sabbath Day and taught from the law and the prophets.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac13.26  (Ac 13:26; 27; 28-29; 30-31; 32-33)
The prophets predicted the suffering of the Messiah; and that the people would reject him.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac13.41-42  (Ac 13:42; 43)
Paul reasoned with the people on the Sabbath; and many believed the message of True Salvation that comes from the Messiah.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac13.44  (Ac 13:44; 45)
Paul taught many people on the Sabbath.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac16.13  (Ac 16:13)
Paul even walked outside the city to meet people and pray on the Sabbath. 
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac17.2  (Ac 17:2; 3)
Paul continued to keep the Sabbath Day Holy and teach the message of True Salvation.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac18.3  (Ac 18:3; 4)
During the other six days of the week; Paul was a tent maker. On the Sabbath Day; Paul served people by proclaiming the Good News of the Kingdom of the Eternal and Salvation in Yeshua.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac15.1  (Ac 15:1; 2)
Some Jews tried to teach that the Gentiles must be circumcised to receive salvation. Paul disagreed by quoting scriptures that prove; True circumcision is of the heart (Dt 10:16; Dt 30:6). When people repent of their sins and are baptized; they will receive the Holy Spirit for the renewing of their hearts and minds. (Ro 12:2)
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac15.5  (Ac 15:5; 6-7)
The apostles discussed the question; is circumcision required for salvation. By examining scripture and the teaching of Yeshua the Messiah it becomes apparent that  obedience to the law of the Eternal is Required (Matt 5:17; 5:18; 5:19; 5:20); but circumcision is only a symbolic practice of obedience. The Heavenly Father requires True circumcision of the heart which will bring the whole mind into obedience to His commandments. Another example of a change in the law is the symbolic act of animal sacrifices as a sign of repentance. The animal sacrifices are replaced by making our body a living sacrifice of obedience (Psa 40:6; 7-8; Ro 12:1; Heb 10:8; 9; 10).True Salvation; occurs when the Holy Spirit Tabernacles in our mind and helps us bring our whole body into obedience to his will. The apostles agree that the law given to Moses will continue to be taught throughout the nations(Acts 15:21; Mal 4:4). They also emphasize abstinence from the widespread sexual immorality and the common habit of eating unclean food by the pagans (Acts 15:20). The clean and unclean animal; food laws cannot change because the Creator did not change the design or purpose for the animals and he did not change the laws of nature.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac15.8  (Ac 15:8; 9)
The Heavenly Father examines the heart of a truly repentant person; and gives His Holy Spirit to help us become like His Son.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Dt10.16  (Dt 10:16)
True circumcision is of the heart.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Dt11.13  (Dt 11:13)
True obedience to the Commandments comes from a heart of Love.
Love the Eternal with all your heart, mind, strength and body.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac15.19  (Ac 15:19; 20)
Do not be sexually immoral or eat unclean and polluted foods.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ac15.21  (Ac 15:21)
The law given to Moses is taught to all nations even to this day.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Mk7.13  (Mk 7:13; 14-16; 17-18; 19
Yeshua said that the religious teachers tried to do away with  the law by substituting it with their own traditions. Yeshua also; revealed that spiritual uncleanness comes from the heart of a person and flows out of the mouth. The religious teachers wrongly judged and condemned others. Earlier in (Mark 7:2) the teachers said the disciples were unclean because they ate food without washing their hands. The example discussed in Mark has nothing to do with eating unclean animals! Yeshua focused on the traditions of ceremonial washing; that could not cleanse the heart. Yeshua explained that if a person might accidentally eat some dirt it will go into the stomach and eventually pass out in the excrement. Yeshua did NOT declare all foods clean; He did not change the laws of nature; He did not make unclean animals–clean for food. Yeshua and Isaiah ( also said (Mk 7:6; 7-8)  that the religious teachers try to do away with the commandments 
(Mk 7:10) by teaching their traditions. (Mk 7:11; 12; Mt 15:3)
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Mk7.19  (Mk 7:19)
The statement; Jesus declared all foods  “clean”. Was added by a translator and does not belong in the original letter from Mark.
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Le11.1  (Le 11:1-8; 9-12; 13-19; 20-21; 22-30;31-38; 39-43; 44-45; 46-47)
Moses and the Levites taught the people to respect the laws governing nature. The Eternal has created some animals to be clean for food. There are other practical health instructions in the law; for the benefit of responsible society
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ro14.6  (Ro 14:6)
The apostles encountered some people that were vegetarians; and they did not eat any meat. But others considered their faith to be stronger because they knew the law for clean animals that was declared by the word of the Eternal. Faith is based upon hearing the instructions of the Eternal and obeying Him 
(Rom 10:17; 3:31). And the Eternal does NOT teach anyone to eat unclean animals. Some people try to say that all meat is forbidden . Paul taught that certain animals were created for food. The instructions of the Creator are Trust-worthy and True . Believers may eat clean animals and give thanks in prayer. 
(1Ti 4:3)
The apostles did NOT attempt to change the 4th commandment; keep Holy the Sabbath day. True followers of Yeshua serve the Heavenly Father and Son every day; but the Sabbath is extra special because it looks forward to the promised kingdom and the restoration of all things. The True Sabbath rest will be complete when the Heavenly Father creates a New Heaven and a New Earth; where only righteousness will dwell. 
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Ga4.8  (Ga 4:8; 9; 10; 11)
Formally; before the Gentiles came to know True Salvation in Yeshua; the pagans followed deceptive customs and worshiped demonic idols, and celebrated celestial cycles as they were influenced by their societal mythologies. Paul is NOT instructing newly converted Gentiles to reject the  Eternal's Holy Sabbaths or High Festivals.
Paul does NOT teach anyone to violate the Holy Sabbaths. He reminds every believer that True Salvation comes from the gift of the Holy Spirit; and with the Heavenly Father's help we will enter the eternal Sabbath Rest. The earthly observances look forward to the promised Heavenly Tabernacle with the Father and Son. Paul and the disciples continued to keep the Sabbath and High Holy Sabbath Feast 
(Cor 5:8; 5:7; 1Cor 16:8; Acts 20:16; 27:9)
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Heb4.9  Heb 4:9; 10; 11; 12; 13)
There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of the Eloheyem Family ;  for anyone who enters the Heavenly Father's rest also rests from his own work, just as the Father did from his.  Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fail by following their example of disobedience. 
For the word of the Eternal is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.  Nothing in all creation is hidden from theFather’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.  
logosres:niv;ref=BibleNIV.Mt5.17  (Mt 5:17; 18; 19; 20)
Yeshua said He did NOT do away with the law or the prophets; but he glorified (Isa 42:21) them and gave us an example to follow 
(Ro 6:16) (Mt 19:16-17; 18-19). 
When we pursue righteousness we have hope of entering the Kingdom of the Heavenly Father and receiving Eternal Life. 
(1John 3:2; 3-5; 6-7; Matt 5:48)
Yeshua clearly states that the love of riches or possessions will prevent us from loving the Heavenly Father. 
(1Ti 6:10; Lk 16:13; Mt 19:23; Mk 10:25; Lk 18:26-27)
