The 91st Day, also called the Soldier Shabbath, are intercalary days within the Solar Calendar of Enoch.
The Hebrew New Year starts the day following the Spring Equinox. The first month is Abib. Each month has 30 days. At the end of three months, the following day is a 91st day. After the next three months, another 91st day. Four times. Four seasons. Four Soldier Shabbaths.
These are not commanded feast days or observances, but they are memorials of Yahweh's protection over us.
Charge given to Enoch: the four Intercalary Days: the Stars which lead the Seasons and the Months.
Enoch 82:1 And now, my son Methuselah, all these things I am recounting to you and writing down for you! and I have revealed to you everything, and given you books concerning all these: so preserve, my son Methuselah, the books from your father's hand, and (see) that you deliver them to the generations of the world.
2 I have given Wisdom to you and to your children,
[And your children that shall be to you],
That they may give it to their children for generations,
This wisdom (namely) that passeth their thought.
3 And those who understand it shall not sleep,
But shall listen with the ear that they may learn this wisdom,
And it shall please those that eat thereof better than good food.
4 Blessed are all the righteous, blessed are all those who walk In the way of righteousness and sin not as the sinners, in the reckoning of all their days in which the sun traverses the heaven, entering into and departing from the portals for thirty days with the heads of thousands of the order of the stars, together with the four which are intercalated which divide the four portions of the year, which
5 lead them and enter with them four days. Owing to them men shall be at fault and not reckon them in the whole reckoning of the year: yea, men shall be at fault, and not recognize them
These are the four 91st days of the Solar calendar. Soldier Sabbaths.
The first 91st day of the Hebrew year is June 18th.
John the Baptist was born on (or near) the fourth 91st day, which is at the end of the Hebrew year, before the Spring Equinox, March 20-21. Six months later, as recorded in the Bible, Christ is born, on (or near) the second 91st day, which is September 17th. The third 91st day is the third intercalary day and is on December 17th.
So we have the four 91st Days. June 18th, September 17th, December 17th, and March 18, 2018.
It was Adam, Enoch and Job that were the original astrologers and instituted the calendar.
I personally believe that the spring and fall 91st days are the birthdays of John the Baptist and Yahshua Christ.
This year, 2017, June 18th at sundown, is a 91st Day. The Soldier Shabbath. The first quarter of the Hebrew year ends. Praise Yahweh for preserving and protecting His faithful remnant. Let's take these Soldier Shabbath days to remember our God, His laws, His mercies and compassion, and remember our kinsmen who are with us in this mortal test called life, and call upon Yahshua, our Soldier of Shabbath.
War for Christ, Win with Christ, Have Eternal Rest with Christ.

The Christian Soldiers Psalm
(True safety comes only through the mercies of YAHWEH God!)
A Close look at Psalm 91 - the Soldiers Psalm
Deliverance Through the Soldiers Psalm
During World War I, the 91st Infantry Brigade of the U.S. Expeditionary Army was preparing to enter combat in Europe. Most of the men were "green soldiers who had never seen combat. Its commander, a devout Christian called an assembly of his men, where he gave each a little card on which was printed the 91st Psalm. They agreed to recite the Soldiers Psalm daily.
The 91st Brigade was engaged in three of the bloodiest battles of WWI; Chateau Thierry, Belle Wood, and the Argonne. While other American units similarly engaged had up to 90% casualties, the 91st Brigade DID NOT SUFFER A SINGLE COMBAT RELATED CASUALTY!
This Psalm shows the "safeguard, the haven of rest," for the true Christian soldier. I want to discuss it in detail in this pamphlet. We will look closely at this marvelous Psalm in an effort, under the guidance of Gods Holy Spirit, to understand its true meaning and significance.
In a world in which the majority of Christians have been led astray by false Jewish doctrines, such as that of the Rapture, which has emasculated Christian soldiers and made them useless on the battlefield; in a day when Christians are being "brainwashed" by alien fairy stories and are "departing from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils," (1st Timothy 4:1), it behooves each of us who dares to name the name of YAHSHUA the Christ and claim Him as our King, to look to the only source which can offer us true refuge from the destruction which is wasting the Christian world in these the most trying and critical times to ever hit old Mother Earth.
Some who read this will be war veterans who have been tried and tested in the fiery crucible of war. You will better understand the "gut wrenching" fear which comes when a man is under fire and cannot defend himself. To the civilian who has never experienced this, I speak to you through personal experience gained in two of our Zionist imposed wars (World War II and Korea). In both these wars, I served as a front line infantryman, both in enlisted and officer grades. I have four Purple Hearts and numerous other decorations to show for this. In Korea, I was the first American wounded and the first to be decorated, winning a Silver Star during the opening hours of that "no win" war. I do not say this to brag, but to let you know I have been there and know whereof I speak.
When the War began in Korea on June 25, 1950, I was working as an Advisor with a South Korean Regiment, at the little town of Pochon, on the 38th Parallel, north of Seoul. I was what you might call a "nominal Christian," or as I like to put it, an "Alka Seltzer Christian", one who goes to church and "fizzes for an hour on Sunday morning, when it is convenient, then lives for the devil most of the rest of the week. I had seen a miracle take place in 1948, eighteen months before the Korean War began, when during a Communist attempted military coup against the South Korean government, most of the Infantry Regiment I was advising (19th Infantry) had joined the rebel forces, taking over the Province of Chollo-Namdo, the cities of Yosu and Sunchon and murdering over 3800 civilians in an effort to control this territory. After being mistreated and facing a Communist Peoples Court, God had miraculously saved me from a Red firing squad. (See my testimony in COMMUNIST TERROR IN PEACEFUL HEAVEN,)
Four times during that abortive war, I went through the terrifying experience of being millimeters from death or serious injury and four times a miracle had occurred. I had seen Korean soldiers falling like flies all around me, but it had not come nigh me. Just as the Psalm states. I could not understand at that time, why YAHWEH GOD would spare an old reprobate like me, who had deliberately "spit in His face" so many times. How can God take a man like this and turn Him into a "watchman on the walls of Israel America?" To me, this was also a miracle.
One day, during the early days of the Korean War, as I casually looked through my Bible, which wasnt too often, Im afraid to confess, I came across the 91st Psalm. It was written especially for Jack Mohr. While I was not able to understand much of the symbolism of the book of Daniel, or Revelation, here was something I could understand and apply to my life, for I was seeing it take place every day. Just the day before, I had stood in the school yard of a little town, as the enemy shelled us with heavy mortar fire. I saw a mortar round drop less then ten yards away, the explosion knocking me to the ground and deafening me for a week. I did not get a scratch, yet several Korean soldiers, over 75 yards away, were killed or wounded. Why? Then when I read this Psalm, I understood why it was written for me, and for any other Christian who has been in, is, or will be in a position of danger. It is a promise from YAHWEH, the Almighty God, as well as eternal hope to those who love Him and seek to serve Him. I start every day by reading It.
So lets take some time to dissect this marvelous piece of literature, most probably written by David, when he was living as a fugitive in the mountains of Judea (see 1 Samuel 23:19-26; 24). We will take it apart verse by verse, using the King James Version of the Bible, and see what it really says to the Christian soldier.
Verse 1 - He that dwelleth (Heb. "yashab" - 3427 meaning: "to dwell; settle down; habitation; house") in the secret place (Heb. - "cithrah" - 5643 meaning: "covered; covert; protection of") of the most High (YAHWEH GOD) shall abide (Heb.- "liyn" - 3885 meaning: "to stay permanently; continue in; dwell in; remain in) under (Heb. - "tachath" - 8478 meaning: "the bottom; beneath; underneath") the shadow (Heb. "tsel" - 6738 meaning: "literal defense of.") of the Almighty. (Yahweh God).
Then in Psalm 30:20 as a backup to this, we read: "Thou shalt hide them (those who trust in God) in the secret of thy presence from the pride of men: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion. (Heb.- "chukkah" - 5521 meaning: "lair; cottage; covert") from the strife of tongues."
Verse 2 - I will say of the Lord (Heb. - "YAHOVAH" - 3068 meaning: "the self-existent or Eternal God and let me say here it does not mean Baal, as some preachers will try and tell you. Whenever it is capitalized it refers to YAHWEH.) He is my refuge (Heb. - "machceh" - 4268 meaning: "shelter; hope; place of refuge.") and my fortress (Heb. - "mtusdah" - 4686 meaning: "a castle; a fort; a defended place."); my God, in Him will I trust. (Heb. - "batach" - 982 -meaning: "to trust; to show confidence in; to hope; be secure in.")
Then in Psalm 142:5 we hear the heartfelt cry of David, as he was hiding in a cave from King Saul: "I cried unto the Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living." Verse 7 - deliver me from my persecution: for they are stronger than I." Oh how we need to think on this verse as we come against an enemy whose strength seems to be overwhelming.
Verse 3 - Surely He shall deliver (Heb. - "natsal" - 5337 meaning: "to snatch away; to defend; to rescue; save") thee from the snare (Heb. - "pach" - 6341 meaning: "a spring net; a snare.") of the fowler (Heb. -"yaguwsh" - 3353 meaning: "one who snares; one who catches fowls in a net".) and from the noisesome (Heb. - "havvah" - 1942 meaning: "One who eagerly covets; desire; calamity; perverse thing; very wicked.") pestilence (Heb. - "deber" - 1698 meaning: "pestilence; plague; a destroyer.")
This idea of being "ensnared" by an evil enemy is seen in Psalm 124:7 - "Our soul is escaped like a bird out of the snare (trap) of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we are escaped."
Verse 4 - He (God) shall cover (Heb. - "sokak" - 5526 meaning: "to fence in; to cover; to defend.") thee with His feathers (Heb. - "ebrah" - 84 meaning: "feathers; or wings." Giving the impression of a mother bird sheltering her brood under her wings. See Matthew 23:37) and under His (Gods wings shalt thou trust: Heb. - "chocoh" - 2620 meaning: "to flee for protection; make a refuge.") Note that the word "trust" as used here has a different meaning than the same English word used in Verse 2.) His truth Heb. - "emeth" - 571 meaning: "stability; certainty; trustworthiness") shall be thy shield (Heb. - "tsinnah" - 6793 meaning "a lage shield which covers the entire body" and buckler. (Heb. "cocherah" - 5507 meaning: "something surrounding a person for protection; a shield.")
In Job 5:19 we read: "He (YAHWEH GOD) shall deliver thee in six troubles; yea, in seven there shall no evil befall thee."
Psalm 112:7 - "He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: for his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord (the Eternal God)."
Proverbs 3:23 - "Then (when you have wisdom from God) shalt thou walk in thy ways safely, and thy foot shall not stumble."
Isaiah 43:2 - "When thou passeth through the waters, I (God) will be with thee: and through the rivers, they shall not overflow (Heb. - "shataph" - 7857 meaning: "by implication to inundate; to conquer; to drown; wash away") thee: when thou walketh through the fire (Heb. - "esh" - 784 meaning: "burning; fierce; fiery; flaming hot") thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." (Here we need to read Daniel 3:24-27). It is the story of the three Hebrew boys in the fiery furnace of King Nebuchadnezzar: "Did we not cast three men bound in the midst of the fire? "...Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Vs.ot h- "And the princes, governors, and captains, and the kings counselors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed upon them." HALLELUYAH!
I want you to remember that our God, YAHWEH THE ALL-POWERFUL, the God we worship today, is the same God we see in Daniel, with the same power today He had then.
In Isaiah 59:1 we read: "Behold the Lords hand is not shortened (Heb. - "gatsar" - 7114 meaning: "wax short; vexed") that it cannot save: neither is His ear heavy (Heb. - "kabed" - 3513 meaning "greviously afflicted") that He cannot hear."
Verse 5 - Thou shalt not be afraid (Heb. - "tare" - 3372 meaning: "frightened; dreadful; fearful") for the terror (Heb. - "pachad" - 6343 meaning: "an object to be feared, a dreadful thing; great fear) by night (during the night session); nor for the arrow (Heb. - "chets" - 2671 meaning "thunderbolt of God; dart) that flieth by day. (Could this refer to a guided nuclear missile? I believe it could!)
Verse 6 - Nor for the pestilence (same as in Vs. 3 - plague) that wasteth (Heb. - "shuwd" - 7736 meaning: "to devastate; waste) at noonday.
Verse 7 - A thousand shall fall (Heb. - "naphal" - 5307 meaning "to fall; be cast down; die; perish) at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh (Heb. - "nagash" - 5066 meaning: "come near for any purpose; as an enemy to attack; approach; come near) thee.
Verse 8 - Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold (be conscious of) and see the reward (Heb. "shillumah" - 8011 meaning: "retribution; reward) of the wicked. (Heb. - "rasha" meaning: "Bad person; ungodly; wicked man.")
In Malachi 1:5 we see a further explanation of this idea as the prophet foretells the fate of Esau-Edom (the Jews) who have attempted to usurp Israel in Palestine: in verse 4 we read: "...They (Esau-Edom) shall build up, but I (YAHWEH GOD) will throw down; and they (Israel) shall call them (the Jews-Esau-Edom). The borders of wickedness, and, the people against who the Lord hath indignation (hatred; anger) forever." Then in verse 5, spoken to true Israel: "And your eyes shall see, and ye shall say, the Lord shall be magnified from the border of Israel."
The reason "true Israel" will be able to see the destruction of Gods enemies without being hurt is found in verse 9 of the 91st Psalm.
Verse 9 - Because thou (Israel) hath made the Lord which is my refuge (shelter, the same as in Vs. 2) even the Most High thy habitation (Heb. - "maoun" - 4582 meaning: "abode; Tabernacle; dwelling place. Refer back to verses 1 and 2.)
Verse 10 - There shall no evil (Heb. - "raad" - 7461 meaning: "fear; trembling") befall (Heb. - "anah" - 579 meaning: "approach; happen to) thee, neither shall any plague (Heb. - "nega" - 5061 meaning: "affliction; plague") come nigh thy dwelling. (Heb. - "Ohel" - 168 meaning: "home; dwelling place.")
Proverbs 12:21 furthers this idea of Gods protection on His own: "There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief." (Heb.ra" - 7451 meaning: "distress; adversity; affliction; grief; sorrow; wretchedness.)
Verse 11 - For He (God) shall give His angels (Heb. - "malak" - 4397 meaning: "to dispatch as a deputy; a messenger from God; an ambassador) charge (Heb. - "tsavah" - 6680 meaning: "command of; give charge of; send with) over thee, to keep (Heb. - "shamar" - 8104 meaning: "to hedge about; to attend to; to preserve; save) thee in all thy ways (Heb. - "derek" - 1870 meaning: "course of life; journey; pathway.") Psalm 34:7 - (Heb. "chanah" - for a seige; dwells) and delivereth them."
Psalm 71:3 - "Be thou (YAHWEH GOD) my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort; thou hast given commandment (orders) to save me: thou are my rock and fortress."
(See also Matthew 4:6 and Luke 4:10, where Satan quotes this same Scripture of Jesus as He is tempted in the wilderness.)
Hebrews 1:14, speaking of Gods angels says: "are they not ministering spirits, sent to minister (Gk - "dikonia" - 1248 meaning: "in attendance on; servants; serve") for them who shall be the heirs of salvation." In other words: The angels are "ministering servants" to those who are CALLED ACCORDING TO GODS PURPOSE, (Romans 8:28).
Verse 12 - They (the angels) shall bear thee up in their hands (Heb. - "kaph" - 3709 meaning: "the hollow of the hand) lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Job 5:19-23 - Speaking of those who love and obey God: "He (God) shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword (nuclear destruction?) Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue (false accusations of the enemy): neither shall thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh. At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth. (Could this possibly refer to people other than the Adamic race?) For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field; and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee."
Psalm 37:24 - "Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholdeth him with His hand."
IF THESE SCRIPTURES DO NOT WANT TO MAKE YOU SHOUT WITH JOY, ITS BECAUSE YOU ARE SPIRITUALLY DEAD!
Verse 13 - Thou shalt tread (Heb. "darak" - 1869 meaning: "tread down; walk on) the lion and adder (poisonous snake); the young lion and the dragon (serpent) shalt thou trample under feet.
Verse 14 - Because He (God) hath set His love upon me (His "born from above" child) therefore will I (God) deliver him: I will set him on high. (Heb. "sogah" - 7682 meaning: "in an inaccessible place; safe place) because he hath known (Heb. - "yada" - 3045 meaning: "acknowledged; recognized; had respect for" my name.
Some preachers say this verse refers to Gods love for His Son, Jesus. But it goes much deeper than this and extends to those who know Him personally and who love and obey His laws.
Psalm 9:10 - "And they that know (respect) Thy name will put their trust in Thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek Thee."
Verse 15 - He (the one who knows God as Savior) shall call on Me, and I (God) will answer him: I will be with him in trouble (Heb. "tsarah" - 6869 meaning: "adversity; affliction: distress; tribulation; trouin H), I will deliver (Heb. - "palat" - 6403 meaning: "cause to escape; cause to deliver; carry away safe) him and honour (Heb. - "kabed" - 3513 meaning: "make rich; make honourable; be held in honour; promote to honour) him.
Psalm 50:15 - "and call upon Me (God) in the day of trouble, and I (God) will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me." (See also Isaiah 43:2).
1st Samuel 2:30 - "for them that honour Me (God) I will honour, and they that despise Me shall be lightly esteemed."
Proverbs 3:1, 2 - "My son, forget not My law; but let thine heart keep my commandments. For length of days, and long life, and peace shall they add to thee."
Verse 16 - With long life will I (God) satisfy (Heb. - "sabea" - 7646 meaning: "fill to satisfaction; have enough to fill; plenty of) him, and show him my salvation. (Heb. - "yshuwah" - 3444 meaning: "deliverance; victory; salvation.")
Now lets take these Hebrew translations and put them together in an attempt to see what this Psalm says in its original Hebrew form:
Verse 1 - He that settles down in the protected place of the most High (Yahweh God), shall dwell permanently beneath the defense of the Almighty.
Verse 2 - I will say to the Eternal God, He is my place of refuge and my defended place; my God, in Him will I be secure.
Verse 3 - Surely He (God) will rescue me from the trap of those who seek to entangle me and from the very wicked destroyer.
Verse 4 - He (God) shall defend me under His feathered wings, and under His overspreading wings shalt you flee for protection. His trustworthiness shall be your shield and He will surround you with a fence for your protection.
Verse 5 - You shalt not be fearful for the dreadful thing which comes at night; nor for the thunderbolt of God that flies by day.
Verse 6 - Nor for the plague that devastates at noonday.
Verse 7 - A thousand shall die at your side and ten thousand at your right side; but it shall not come near to attack you.
Verse 8 - Only with your eyes will you be conscious of the retribution of the wicked.
Verse 9 - Because you have made the Eternal One which is my shelter, even the Self-Existent One your dwelling place.
Verse 10 - There shall no fear approach you, neither shall any affliction come close to your house.
Verse 11 - For God shall send His special messengers to be with you, to hedge you about and attend to you in all your journey.
Verse 12 - They (the angel messengers) shall bear you in the hollow of their hands so that you shall not stumble or hurt your foot against a stone.
Verse 13 - You shall walk on the lion and the poisonous snake; the young lion and the sea serpent you will tramp under your feet.
Verse 14 - Because God has set His love upon me, (His "born from above child") therefore will He deliver me.
Verse 15 - I will call upon God, and God will answer me. God will be with me in tribulation. God will cause me to escape and will promote me to honour.
Verse 16 - With long life will God fill me with satisfaction, and He will show me His deliverance and victory.
There is one reservation which needs to be noted in both verses 15 and 16. It is found in Isaiah 59:1,2. Many Israelite Christians seem to feel that they can call on God at any time and He is bound to hear and answer them. Verse 1 tells us that Gods power has not diminished over the centuries. He is still the same God of power that opened the Red Sea for our ancestors in 1491 B.C. He is still the same God that stood beside the shepherd boy David and guided the stone from his sling as it sunk into the head of the giant Goliath. He still has the power to save His people.
But verse 2 clearly tells us there are times when God will not even listen to our prayers. This is when we have sinned, broken Gods law, and this sin has corroded the contact points between us and the power supply which is now found in the Holy Spirit.
We should never allow a day to end, in which we do not take a "self-inventory" and then use the marvelous "safety valve" God has provided for us in I John 1:9 - "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." With all due love and respect for our Israelite friends of the Catholic faith, this means that you do not have to go to God through a priest. You can approach the Father directly through Jesus Christ, who is now the Advocate before the Father.
There is one very important thing each of us MUST understand. This special "Father-son" relationship does not come because we are "white", or because we have the blood of Abraham flowing in our veins.
One day, Jesus told a very fine Israelite named Nicodemus, that if He ever wanted to see the Kingdom, he would have to have a change of heart. (John 3:3.) This verse should have been more accurately translated: "Born from above."
God created us to have eternal fellowship with Him. It was the waywardness of our first parents, Adam and Eve, the father and mother of the white race, that caused us to be born with a "sin nature."
So before we can claim this wonderful "Father-son" relationship, we must have the spiritual experience of accepting the King, Jesus, as our Commander-in-Chief. Some people call this being "saved," which again is in error. They try and change this into something mystical which is not necessary. It was never intended to be something we cannot understand. In fact, we cannot come to God unless we are led by His Spirit. Romans 8:14 tells us: "for as many as are LED by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."
You may ask: "Does every Israelite need to go through this process?" and we find the answer in Romans 3:10 where we are told: "...There is none righteous, no not one." Verse 12: "...there is none that doeth good, no, not one." Verse 23: "For ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
You may ask: "What is sin? And we find the answer in 1 John 3:4 - "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law; for sin is transgression of the law." So if you break Gods law, either deliberately or through ignorance, you are a sinner. Have you ever known any man or woman who has not in some way broken the basis of Gods law as found in the Ten Commandments? The Bible says that any who says they have not sinned are liars (1 John 1:8).
In Romans 6:23, we learn that the "wages of sin is death" and that eternal life comes through Jesus Christ our Lord. This goes back to the Natural Law of Genesis 2:17, given centuries before the codified law was given at Sinai.
Then we might ask: "But isnt there some way in which a person can save themselves?"
And again we resort to Gods Word in Ephesians 2:8, 9 where we read: "For by grace (Gods unmerited favor) are ye saved, through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast." So we see where we do not become Christians by merely being kind to our family, not beating our dog, and being honest with our fellow men. it goes much deeper than this. in 1st Timothy 1:9 we read; "Who (referring to Jesus Christ) has saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before the world began."
When we read so much in the Bible and hear so much about evil men being punished in "hell" with Satan and His angels, we might wonder if God wants to save those who are lost and away from Him. John 3:16, one of the key verses of the Bible, tells us that God so loved the "world". Some of you Identity people may resent this, but the word "world" as used here, comes from the Greek word "kosmos" (2889) which means: "by implication the world and its inhabitants." In 2 Peter 3:9 we read: "The Lord (God the Eternal One) is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to usward, not willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL should come to repentance." The Greek word for "any" is "tis" (5100) meaning: "any person; any man; every man; whosoever." The word ALL in Greek is "pas" (3956) which means: "all; every; all manner of; anyone; everyone." Now I hardly think that those of you who want to throw Paul out of the New Testament, -would want to do the same to the Apostle Peter. Yet they agree on this teaching that "anyone whom God calls can come to repentance." If you dont like that teaching, please dont waste my time by trying to argue with me; take your beef to God, Hes the one who had it written.
Some might say, "But isnt there some other way beside coming through Jesus. What about the Jew who follows his religion, or the Mohammedan, or the Hindu? Wont they be saved. Its not what you believe that counts, its whether you are sincere about it or not." Well let me tell you something, brother, sister, you can be very sincere about something and be sincerely wrong. Sincerity has nothing to do with the truth.
So if we are going to accept the Bible, Gods WORD as our guide, we will need to accept Acts 4:12, where Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, told the Israelites gathered in Jerusalem: "Neither is there salvation in any other (than Jesus): for their is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we MUST be saved." (1st Timothy 5:6 - "For there is ONE God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." This means again, that a priest cant do it for us.
In John 14:6, Jesus, the Son of God tells us Himself: "...I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; NO MAN cometh unto the Father, but by me." So when Bailey Smith of the Southern Baptist Convention said a few years ago that God did not hear the prayers of Jews, he was absolutely correct. He listens only to those who come to Him through His Son.
So what must a man or woman do to come into this Father-son-daughter relationship with God, through Jesus Christ? Jesus speaking in John 4:24 said: "...He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death into life." (By the way, this is much more than just a head knowledge that you believe there is a God.)
The Baptists dont like this verse, but when the people who heard Peter preach on the day of Pentecost, were stricken in their hearts and asked what they should do, the apostle said (Acts 2:38 - "...Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus for the remission (cancellation) of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." So the "repentance" is necessary and the "baptism" is necessary. Then in Romans 10:9 and 10, we listen as Paul explains: "That if you confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart, that God raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Then in I John 5:12, 13, the Apostle John tells us: "he that hath the Son hath life: and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that YE MAY KNOW THAT YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
Im going to get personal now and ask you Israelites who read these words whether you have ever had this personal relationship with the Commander-in-Chief? Answer this to yourself, I dont need to know, but you do! Its essential that you know the Commander in a personal way, if you are going to be successful as a Christian soldier in the war which we are now in. Do you want to claim the wonderful provisions of the 91st Psalm? Then why dont you come to grips with yourself and your God and get in on the winning side.
Soon the war will be over. Soon Jesus Christ will rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Will He be able to recognize you as one of His true followers, or will He have to say to you: "Depart from me, I never knew you?" (Luke 13:27).
BEHOLD TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION!
