Sins by accidental, by naivety or by omission, and their Spiritual Consequence

If you don’t do what you know is right, you have sinned. James 4:17

How grave can sins be by error, by naivety, or even by omission; and how much can they affect the development of the spiritual life of a believer?

Spiritually, ignoring is not an excuse, nor does it avoid judgment or punishment. Unfortunately, however, it becomes a legal right for darkness to operate against the faith of one who seeks to act according to the Will of the Lord.

Even earthly laws based on principles not necessarily spiritual have recognized that ignorance of the law does not exempt its fulfillment, and therefore does not serve as an excuse to evade its punishment.

A biblical case that confirms and helps us understand this situation is the case of the three years of famine that the country suffered during the reign of David; a famine that apparently had no reason to be, it turned out to be provoked by an action of King Saul, David’s predecessor, against the Gibeonites.

And there was a famine in the days of David three years, year after year; and David inquired of Jehovah. And Jehovah said, It is for Saul, and for [his] house of blood, because he slew the Gibeonites 2 Samuel 21:1

David and his people were unaware of the existence of such a situation, however it affected them as much as if they themselves had provoked.

Sins by mistake, by naïveté, or by omission, proper or familiar, can be as disastrous as those caused under the knowledge of the laws that forbid them.

One might think that the subject is an academic subject, proper only to scholars, to exegetes, or to teachers of the theological faculties.

But no, it is not. It is a simple theme that applies to the most neophytes in the Word. I proceed to explain it to you.

One day reading the text of Matthew 12 I was confronted with the following text,

He that is not with me is against me, and he that gathers not with me scatters. Matthew 12:30

And the times I had read it, I had seen in the, He who is not with me, an enemy openly declared against God. That day I was confronted with the fact that such a text refers to sins by accident, by ignorance and/or by omission.

It is not that they are aware that they are against God, it is that they made mistakes in ignorance or by omission, and they do not know it.

Looking again at the text of Matthew 12 we will realize that it lists the consequences of being against Him and scattering.

31For this reason I say unto you, Every sin and injurious speaking shall be forgiven to men, but speaking injuriously of the Spirit shall not be forgiven to men. 32And whosoever shall have spoken a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever shall speak against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this age nor in the coming [one]36But I say unto you, that every idle word which men shall say, they shall render an account of it in judgment-day: 37for by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

The text refers to at least four situations in which the person may incur and not realize that he has fallen into such a sin.

  • To blaspheme against the Holy Spirit; that is, to attribute the activity to the Holy Spirit when in reality it is a demonic activity, or on the contrary, to identify demonic participation when in reality it is the work of the Holy Spirit.
  • To speak against the Holy Spirit, that is, to oppose an argument contrary to what is prophetically established.
  • To speak idly, that is, to speak without meaning, without purpose, and
  • To be condemned for what one speaks. One makes judgments about oneself.

I confess that this frightened me, because I immediately asked myself, “How many times have I been, or still am, against Him, and I have not known?

What does the Word tell us about how to work these situations?

Returning again to the text of Matthew 12,

33Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt. For from the fruit the tree is known. 34Offspring of vipers! how can ye speak good things, being wicked? For of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35The good man out of the good treasure brings forth good things; and the wicked man out of the wicked treasure brings forth wicked things.

The remedy is, first of all, make the tree good,

Either make the tree good, for from the fruit the tree is known.

How can a bad tree turn into a good tree? Simple, because of the soil where it is planted. The tree is the result of the ground. We read it in the Scriptures,

21And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith Jehovah, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth; 22and the earth shall hear the corn, and the new wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jizreel. Hosea 2:21, 22

Notice the order, the soil responds to what has been sown, to what has been sown by man.

A bad production is not the result of a bad seed, not even of an inadequate sower, it is the product of a poor land; for that reason, we now understand God’s regulation to let the land rest,

34Then shall the land enjoy its sabbaths all the days of the desolation, when ye are in your enemies’ land; then shall the land rest, and enjoy its sabbaths. Leviticus 26:34

Make the tree good, it means changing the earth that is feeding the tree. Where are we spiritually feeding from?

And, in the second place,

Transforming the nature of the heart, let’s look at the rest of the text from Matthew 12,

O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Let us review the question,

How can you speak well, being evil?

Let’s check the establishment for truth,

The bad man from the bad treasure brings out bad things.

Being in good soil is not a guarantee of change, it is necessary to make additional adjustments.

This leads us to review the provisions in Moses’ Law about sins out of ignorance,

The Lord told Moses 2to say to the community of Israel: Offer a sacrifice to ask forgiveness when you sin by accidentally doing something I have told you not to do. Leviticus 4:1, 2

Let us review the question,

How can you speak well, being evil?

Let’s check the establishment for truth,

The bad man from the bad treasure brings out bad things.

Being in good soil is not a guarantee of change, it is necessary to make additional adjustments.

This leads us to review the provisions in Moses’ Law about sins out of ignorance,

The Lord told Moses 2to say to the community of Israel:  Offer a sacrifice to ask forgiveness when you sin by accidentally doing something I have told you not to do. Leviticus 4:1, 2

The entire chapter 4 deals with the matter, treating the situation according to the dignity of the one who has erred, but in all of them it stands out,

And he shall take away all the fat and burn it upon the altar…

What does it mean to burn the fat?

It means to burn the bad man, this of course so that he does not continue to draw evil things out of the evil treasure.

The instructions of the Law were not simply ritual, they had as their background the purpose that every time such a sacrifice was presented, the bowels of the evil man, of whose abundance the mouth speaks, was being burned, and a good man was emerging in his place.

It also stands out in the reading of Leviticus 4,

After the sin on which they offended has been understood,…

This means that it is a personal, individual and non-transferable decision of one’s own.

Here the remedy for sin is completed by error, ignorance, or omission.

What if we are against Him and are scattering?

It is necessary to review all decisions made, actions taken, activities, plans, projects, arguments, words, thoughts, everything, without exception.

In the review we will discover details of things that we incur, naively, without double-mindedness, without hypocrisy, but that placed us against Him, and worse still, scattering. That is the time to burn the fat upon the altar.

A knowledge we must derive from all this, spiritual growth and development according to faith does not depend on good intentions, nor even on purity of heart; it depends on not transgressing the spiritual principles upon which the Kingdom of God is built.

The Importance of the date of Journey of Donald Trump: May 19th, 2017

There is a spiritual assignment on Donald Trump, similar to that which was prophesied by the prophet Isaiah around King Cyrus (כוֹרֶשׁ). Recently Rabbi Hamekubal Rab Kuk showed after having said that Trump would win the elections that the numerical value of the name of Donald Trump is similar to that of Mashiaj Ben David. In his teaching he acknowledges that by his intervention will be established in Israel the beginning of the redemption of the nation:

Of course this message does not mean that Trump is Mashiaj Ben David, but he will fulfill in the role of Mashiaj Ben David, for good or ill, but it will be a fundamental card in the Redemption and the coming of Mashiach.[1]

All of Donald Trump’s actions around Israel point to the fulfillment of a restoration prophecy that he will be activating precisely in our time, mainly in this year 2017. On this occasion I want to present the case of the trip through the Middle East and Its relationship with the dates of the year shemitah, Passover, Shavuot (Pentecost), and the establishment of Jerusalem as the head of nations.

The first presidential trip of Donald Trump, president of the United States of America, on May 19, 2017, has a prophetic value and marks an important signal for the restoration of biblical times, according to the revelation under which Church of the Lord operated in the first centuries.[2]

The day was not chosen at random, not even by Donald Trump himself. It is a date that responds to a prophetic agenda established since the time of the prophet Isaiah, to restore in our day the order established by Jehovah God in terms of how to measure the passage of time, according to the protocol that was established To Israel on the way out of Egypt.

This is the day on which according to the Law of Moses an omer is presented for the first fruit of the first fruits of your harvest,[3] on which day the countdown begins of the seven weeks for the second great solemn feast, the Feast of Shavuot.

The data, of course, belongs to our calculation. The present Jewish people mark for the Pesach celebration a date different from ours; this year 2017 coincided with the pagan Christian date of Passover. According to the current account, the omer began to be counted on April 11 and will end on May 30. As of May 19, the omer account corresponded to the day 39, that is, five weeks and four days.

However, this date of celebration is very early If taken into account that the feast is of first fruits, and the demand to present an omer for scoop could not be fulfilled since for the latitude 31oN in which it is Israel, the sun has not yet matured the sown fruits, and in many cases, they have not yet been born. For the 22nd or 23rd of March, when the beginning of spring is considered astronomically, and the date on which the Passover and Pesach[4] celebration design is based, the sun is still very south of the region.

It is necessary to recalculate the date of celebration of Pesach but taking into account the movement of the earth that determines the precession of the equinoxes. As the sun travels from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere, the date of the arrival of spring (first fruits) for the region of Israel must be greater than that of March 22 or 23, As we said, is the date on which the sun is on the equator.

We are not interested in the date of the astronomical, scientific beginning of spring; but the date when the fruits begin to glean For the region where Israel is located, that is, when the sun has risen high enough on the northern hemisphere. In order to calculate this date, we assist the next full moon, that is, the full moon of the month of April.

The full April moon marks the start of the regional spring for Israel. The northern hemisphere has come entirely from the low temperatures that still persist from the winter that has just passed, and allows the gleaning of the fruits, as read in the account of the plague of hail that fell on Egypt in The time that this form of biblical calendar was established:

31 And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled. 32 But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were not grown up. Exodus 9:31

So, then, the new year begins with the next new moon, after having seen the full moon of April. It was this moon that caused Moses by the ordinance of Jehovah God to establish the beginning of the year:

2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Exodus 12:2

The biblical Pesach actually begins with the first full moon of the new year. That is, the next full moon after that marks the beginning of the regional spring of Israel. In light of these data, we will have the dates corrected for the Pesaj celebration, and for the seven week count for the celebration of Shavuot.

The full moon of April for this year 2017 fell on April 11, that day began the regional spring for Israel. The astronomical new moon was scheduled for April 26, therefore, the biblical year and the first month of the year began on April 27. The date corrected for Pesach is May 10, and from 11 to 17 of the same month the true date of bitter herbs, corresponding to the days 14 to 21 of the first month, as we read in the detail that Moses offered for observation Annual celebration:

17 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance forever. 18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. Exodus 12:17,18

The first day of omer by recalculating date was this year on May 19, the day of first fruits, the date when Donald Trump began his presidential trip. This leads us to another prophetic establishment. If your journey was on the first day of the count of the seven weeks, after which according to the law of Moses you will offer a new present to Jehovah,[5] we have to wait that the fiftieth day of this account is Say, at the solemn feast of Shavuot, we have a new intervention by Donald Trump in the Middle East.

To calculate the date of the solemn feast of shavuot ‑Pentecost, in the Christian environment‑ we count forty-nine days from May 19, which brings us to the date of July 7.

This date is prophetic, as was the delivery of the Torah to the people on Mount Sinai, it is the date of establishment of Sion by head of mountains, prophesied by the prophet Micah:

1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. Micah 4:1

Prophesied also by the prophet Isaiah:

For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. Isaias 62:1

Based on the fact that this year marks the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and since one of Donald Trump’s campaign promises was to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem, we hope For Shavuot Day, July 7, 2017, be the day the United States moves its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, thus completing the prophecy of Isaiah around Israel about the arrival of the man of my council.[6]
