“And when they said, There is in heaven a living YA’OH – 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Yahuah, and mighty, who commanded the seventh day to be kept:” MAKKABIYM SHENIY (2 MACCABEES) 15:4 את CEPHER Publishing Group.
Some may think they are above the Law of YA’OH and can dictate when you can keep the Day of Rest according to their schedule. Let’s examine how that issue was dealt with in the past and why we must give Abba YA’OH Exclusive Devotion!
“BUT Nicanor, hearing that Yahudah and his company were in the strong places about Shomeron, resolved without any danger to set upon them on the Shabbath. Nevertheless the Yahudiym that were compelled to go with him said, O destroy not so cruelly and barbarously, but give honor to that day, which he, that sees all things, has honored with holiness above all other days. Then the most ungracious wretch demanded, if there were a mighty One in heaven, that had commanded the Shabbath to be kept. And when they said, There is in heaven a living YA’OH – יהוה 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Yahuah, and mighty, who commanded the seventh day to be kept:” MAKKABIYM SHENIY (2 MACCABEES) 15:1-4 את CEPHER Publishing Group.
“Then said the other, And I also am mighty upon earth, and I command to take arms, and to do the king’s business. Yet he obtained not to have his wicked will done. So Nicanor in exceeding pride and haughtiness determined to set up a public monument of his victory over Ya’ohdah | Yahudah and them that were with him. But Yahudah Makkabiy had ever sure confidence that YA’OH יהןה – 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 | Yahuah would help him: Wherefore he exhorted his people not to fear the coming of the heathen against them, but to remember the help which in former times they had received from heaven, and now to expect the victory and aid, which should come unto them from El Shaddai | The Almighty AL. And so comforting them out of the Thorah | Torah and the prophets, and withal putting them in mind of the battles that they won afore, he made them more cheerful. And when he had stirred up their minds, he gave them their charge, showing them therewithal the falsehood of the heathen, and the breach of oaths.” MAKKABIYM SHENIY (2 MACCABEES) 15:5-10 את CEPHER Publishing Group.
“Thus he armed everyone of them, not so much with defence of shields and spears, as with comfortable and good words: and beside that, he told them a dream worthy to be believed, as if it had been so indeed, which did not a little rejoice them. And this was his vision: That Onyahu, who had been high priest, a virtuous and a good man, reverend in conversation, gentle in condition, well spoken also, and exercised from a child in all points of virtue, holding up his hands prayed for the whole body of the Yahudiym. This done, in like manner there appeared a man with gray hairs, and exceeding glorious, who was of a wonderful and excellent majesty. Then Onyahu answered, saying, This is a lover of the brethren, who prays much for the people, and for the holy city, to wit, Yirmeyahu the prophet of ALA’AYM | Elohiym. Whereupon Yirmeyahu holding forth his right hand gave to Yahudah a sword of gold, and in giving it spoke thus, Take this holy sword, a gift from ALA’AYM | Elohiym, with the which you shall wound the adversaries.” MAKKABIYM SHENIY (2 MACCABEES) 15:11-16 את CEPHER Publishing Group.
“Thus being well comforted by the words of Yahudah, which were very good, and able to stir them up to valor, and to encourage the hearts of the young men, they determined not to pitch camp, but courageously to set upon them, and manfully to try the matter by conflict, because the city and the sanctuary and the Temple were in danger. For the care that they took for their women, and their children, their brethren, and folks, was in least account with them: but the greatest and principal fear was for the holy Temple. Also they that were in the city took not the least care, being troubled for the conflict abroad. And now, when as all looked what should be the trial, and the enemies were already come near, and the army was set in array, and the beasts conveniently placed, and the horsemen set in wings, Yahudah Makkabiy seeing the coming of the multitude, and the diverse preparations of armor, and the fierceness of the beasts, stretched out his hands toward heaven, and called upon YA’OH יהןה – 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 | Yahuah that works wonders, knowing that victory comes not by arms, but even as it seems good to him, he gives it to such as are worthy: Therefore in his prayer he said after this manner; O YA’OH יהןה – 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Yahuah, you did send your angel in the time of Yechizqiyahu king of Ya’ohdah | Yahudah, and did slay in the host of Cancheriyv a hundred fourscore and five thousand:” MAKKABIYM SHENIY (2 MACCABEES) 15:17-22 את CEPHER Publishing Group.
“Wherefore now also, O YA’OH – יהןה | 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Yahuah of heaven, send a good angel before us for a fear and dread unto them; And through the might of your arm let those be stricken with terror, that come against your holy people to blaspheme. And he ended thus. Then Nicanor and they that were with him came forward with shofars and songs. But Yahudah and his company encountered the enemies with invocation and prayer. So that fighting with their hands, and praying unto ALA’AYM | Elohiym with their hearts, they slew no less than thirty and five thousand men: for through the appearance of ALA’AYM | Elohiym they were greatly cheered. Now when the battle was done, returning again with joy, they knew that Nicanor lay dead in his harness.” MAKKABIYM SHENIY (2 MACCABEES) 15:23-28 את CEPHER Publishing Group.
“Then they made a great shout and a noise, praising El Shaddai | The Almighty AL in their own language. And Ya’ohdah | Yahudah, who was ever the chief defender of the citizens both in body and mind, and who continued his love toward his countrymen all his life, commanded to strike off Nicanor’s head, and his hand with his shoulder, and bring them to Yerushalayim. So when he was there, and called them of his nation together, and set the priests before the altar, he sent for them that were of the tower, And showed them vile Nicanor’s head, and the hand of that blasphemer, which with proud brags he had stretched out against the holy Temple of The Almighty AL | El Shaddai. And when he had cut out the tongue of that wicked Nicanor, he commanded that they should give it by pieces unto the fowls, and hang up the reward of his madness before the Temple. So every man praised toward the heaven the glorious YA’OH יהןה | 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 | Yahuah, saying, Blessed be he that has kept his own place undefiled.” MAKKABIYM SHENIY (2 MACCABEES) 15:29-34 את CEPHER Publishing Group.
“He hanged also Nicanor’s head upon the tower, an evident and manifest sign unto all of the help of YA’OH יהןה – 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 | Yahuah. And they ordained all with a common decree in no case to let that day pass without solemnity. But to celebrate the thirtieth day of the twelfth month, which in the Aramiyth tongue is called Adar, the day before Mordekai’s day. Thus went it with Nicanor: and from that time forth the Ivriym had the city in their power. And here will I make an end. And if I have done well, and as is fitting the story, it is that which I desired: but if slenderly and meanly, it is that which I could attain unto. For as it is hurtful to drink wine or water alone; and as wine mingled with water is pleasant, and delights the taste: even so speech finely framed delights the ears of them that read the story. And here shall be an end.” MAKKABIYM SHENIY (2 MACCABEES) 15:35-40 את CEPHER Publishing Group.
