A Dwelling for His Name


 

Deuteronomy 16

Passover

Observe the month of Abib and celebrate the Passover of the Lord your God, because in the of Abib He brought you out of Egypt by night. 2Sacrifice as the Passover to the Lord your God an animal from your flock or herd at the place the Lord will choose as a Dwelling for His Name. 3Do not eat it with bread made with yeast, but for seven days eat unleavened bread, the bread of affliction, because you left Egypt in haste-so that all the days of your life you may remember the time of your departure from Egypt. 4Let no yeast be found in your possession in all your land for seven days. Do not let any of the meat you sacrifice on the evening of the first day remain until morning.

5You must not sacrifice the Passover in any town the Lord your God gives you except in the place He will choose as a Dwelling for His Name. There you must sacrifice the Passover in the evening, when the sun goes down, on the anniversary of your departure from Egypt. 7Roast it and eat it the the place the Lord your God will  choose. Then in the morning return to your tents. 8For six days eat unleavened bread and on the seventh day hold an assembly to the Lord God and do no work.

 

Feast of Weeks

13Celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days after you have gathered the produce of you threshing floor and your winepress. 14Be joyful at your Feast-you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants, and the Levites, the aliens, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns. 15For seven days celebrate the Feast to the Lord your God at the place the Lord will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Tabernacles. No man should appear before the Lord empty-handed: 17Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way the your God has blessed you.

 

Judges

18Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the Lord your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly. 19Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the word of the righteous. 20Follow justice and justice alone (Jesus) so that you may live and possess the land the Lord your God is giving you.

 

Worshiping Other gods

21Do not set up any wooden Asherah pole beside the altar you build to the Lord your God, 22 and do not erect a sacred stone, for these the Lord your God hates.

To those who think to worship the Queen of Heaven take heed to the warning of the Lord, for He will not share His Glory with NO ONE! (Jeremiah 44).

Matthew 24:26  "So if anyone tells you. "There He is, out in the dessert, " do not go out; or, "Here He is in the inner rooms," do not believe it. 27For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28Wherever there is a carcass, the vultures will gather.

Matthew 23:  Do not withhold the most important of all: Justice, mercy and faithfulness. Without these your sacrifices are as filthy rags.
