My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting-place.
To whom He said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
And He hath violently taken away His tabernacle, as if it were a garden: He hath destroyed His places of the assembly: Yahovah hath caused the solemn feasts and sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion, and hath despised in the indignation of His anger the king and the priest.
Lamentations 2:9 ...: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: without the law: her prophets also find no vision from Yahovah.
Psalms 81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast-day.
Isaiah 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new-moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before Me, saith Yahoweh.
Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before Yahoweh in the sabbaths and in the new-moons.
Thus saith Yah-Yahoweh The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east, shall be shut the six working days; but on the sabbath is shall be opened, and in the day of the new-moon it shall be opened.
The land also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. [The fourth command begins with "Mark the day of the New Moon, to consecrate It"] - Zawkare eth yom ha kodesh la-quodesh-oo, they changed "The New Moon" to "The Sabbath"

I heard those clothed with the armor speak forth
the truth with great power. It had effect. Many
had been bound; some wives by their husbands, and
some children by their parents. The honest who had
been prevented from hearing the truth now eagerly
laid hold upon it. All fear of their relatives was gone,
and the truth alone was exalted to them. They had
been hungering and thirsting for truth; it was dearer
and more precious than life. I asked what had made
this great change. An angel answered, "It is the latter
rain, the refreshing from the presence of Yahovah, the
loud cry of the third angel."

And I saw that if Elohim had changed the Sabbath, from the seventh
to the first day, He would have changed the writing of the Sabbath commandment, written on
the tables of stone, which are now in the ark, in the Most Holy Place of the Temple in
heaven; and it would read thus: The first day is the Sabbath of the Yah thy Elohim. But I
saw that it read the same as when written on the tables of stone by the finger of Yah, and
delivered to Moses in Sinai, "But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Yah thy
Elohim." I saw that the holy Sabbath is, and will be, the separating wall between the
true Israel of Yah and unbelievers; and that the Sabbath is the great question, to unite
the hearts of Elohim's dear waiting saints. And if one believed, and kept the Sabbath, and
received the blessing attending it, and then gave it up, and broke the holy commandment,
they would shut the gates of the Holy City against themselves, as sure as there was an
Elohim that rules in heaven above. I saw that Yah had children, who do not see and keep
the Sabbath. They had not rejected the light on it. And at the commencement of the time of
trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth, and proclaimed
the Sabbath more fully. This enraged the church, and nominal Adventists, as
they could not refute the Sabbath truth. And at this time, Elohim's chosen all saw clearly
that we had the truth, and they came out and endured the persecution with us. And I saw
the sword, famine, pestilence, and great confusion in the land. The wicked thought that we
had brought the judgments down on them. They rose up and took counsel to rid the earth of
us, thinking that then the evil would be stayed.

(Elohim) is true. He reigns, and will reign, notwithstanding that the church
and the world have entered into a confederacy to abolish His law. Age after
age Satan has been blinding men by his wiles. He has co-operated with human
agencies in an effort to make falsehood truth. He has worked with intensity
to defy the (Elohim) of heaven by making His law of none effect. But he has not
done this; for in the ark of (Elohim) in heaven are the tables of stone upon which
are written the precepts that are the foundation of His government. And the
Sabbath, which (Elohim) declares to be the sign of the loyalty of His people, is
placed in the bosom of the Decalogue. Its sanctity reaches into eternity; for
(Elohim) declares that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to
another, His subjects shall come up to worship before Him in the earth made
