Come to the House of Yahweh “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the House of Yahweh. (Psalm 122:1)

Come to the House of Yahweh
“I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the House of Yahweh. (Psalm 122:1)”
“You shall not forsake our assemblies like that which is the custom of some but each of you shine all
the more as you see the Day come near. (Hebrews 10:25)”
“Have we not all one Father? Did not one Elohim create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our
fathers by breaking faith with one another? (Malachi 2:10)”
The Greek word for ” not forsake our assemblies” is Strong’s Greek #1997 “episunagoge,” {epee-soon-ag-o-gay} a verb meaning “to go to synagogue,” we break it down as – epi- on, upon, at, by, near,
over, on top of, go to, toward, against, among; sunagoge – synagogue, to draw together, to join together, to
bring with oneself,” a gathering together in one place; the (religious) assembly (of Believers). We as priests
need the regular exposure to the special quality of awe that only comes from being in the presence of
Yahweh with fellow Believers. Going to synagogue is like making a miniature aliyah or pilgrimage to
Jerusalem. “The holy city is named “Yerushalayim,” for she contains both yir’ah (awe) and shalom
(peace). (“The Language of Truth,” page 196)”
“If you love Me, keepMy commandments. (John 14:15)”
What commandment is specifically involved in Hebrews 10:25? When Yahweh commanded His
people to “Keep the Sabbath Day Holy (Exodus 20:8),” He commanded them to assemble together on
the Sabbath day! “Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, an holy
convocation (meaning we are “called together” to worship Him in an assembly) (Leviticus 23:3).” The
reason the writer to the Hebrews mentions this is that certain people, weak people, were separating
themselves from the people of Yahweh, staying home, doing their own thing; they were not assembling in a
Holy Convocation where Yahweh was assembling with His people on the Sabbath day. We need to be
attending Sabbath services, especially since the end is coming soon!
Recently, I heard a Christian make this statement: “I believe we are free from all law and rules
which include Sabbath laws (misapplication of Acts 13:39 Rom 6:14). It does not increase or decrease ones
righteousness to show up at a building the first day of the week every week to listen to one sermon and hear
some praise music. Personally I listen to at least a sermon a day not one a week and I listen to praise and
worship music on my own. Paul said “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together as some do”
which is misapplied to require Sunday church attendance. This does not mean I am required to go to church
on Sunday or must submit to the authority of a local church. First off, Sunday is not the Sabbath but we are
not under a Sabbath rule anyway. Secondly, what church would I go to? I know of no local church that
does not teach blatant error. Third on a personal note I work 10-12 hrs every sat night keeping small
children from dying as a nurse so I am sleeping when mainstream Christianity shows up for their church so
I would be excused from mainstream church attendance even if it were required. Fourthly I fellowship
constantly online with fellow like minded believers and am encouraged and learn more from them then I
ever did from any church. All I have seen in formal churches is horrible legalistic bondage and guilt
manipulation and error. The church is the body of Christ wherever it may be. Paul went house to house and
met in private homes. In short.. formal church attendance is not required to get or keep salvation
