  • Lawvawn Yisrael on James 1:22
    Why is it necessary to hide God's holy name? I've read the scriptures and I find nothing that support this action. Also, who gave man the authority to hide it?
  • Chris - in Reply on James 1:22
    It is not necessary to "hide God's Holy Name" for it has been revealed many times over throughout Scripture & there is no Scripture to forbid us doing it. God has revealed Himself in multiple forms of His Name & this was so that we might know Him & love Him more for Who He is.

    However, for the Jew, they are forbidden to speak God's Name, lest they mistakenly break the third Commandment, "Thou shall not take the Name of the LORD thy God in vain". Yet we are to praise His Name as we often see in the Psalter: e.g. Psalms 69:29,30; Psalms 96. I think that 'authority to hide God's Name' is from man's zeal & inclinations & not from God or His Holy Word.

    Is it necessary to strictly keep the Sabbath Day ?
  • Hugo Zyl - in Reply on James 1:22
    God bless you brother Nigel

    Yes, definitely. But what is the Sabbath? The Sabbath is Jesus Christ. He is our rest. Every day of our lives we should strictly live a life of devotion towards our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is our all in all, and the true Sabbath. The true rest.

    Matthew 11:28

    "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

    Love in Christ
