A new committee to save the world

David Zervos: There Is A New Committee To Save The World, And Markets Are Going To Surge Like Crazy

A repeat of the Greenspan,Summers, Rubin committee that worked to prevent an asian economic meltdown..

So who’s in this new C.T.S.T.W.?

Ben Bernanke, Mario Draghi, and a player to be named later.

Who exactly is this player to be named later? We’ll have to wait and see- but if its the distinguished European gentlemen without and office right now that everyone seems to admire – I’m buying all the canned beans I can get my hands on.

  1. This is a bit off topic, but I respect several of you based on what is posted here.

    Who truly keeps the Sabbath on here? If you do keep the Sabbath, what day do you consider the Sabbath? What do you do to make it Holy?

    Thank you for your indulgence.

  2. Whatever the comments are they need to keep this in mind:

    One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God. For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.
    (Romans 14:5-9 ESV)

  3. Do you agree that scripture cannot contradict itself? Is what you posted really saying what you think it is? I am not trying to come in here to prove any points-being passive aggressive. This is truly a seeking question. Something that is really weighing on me.

    Since most here watch for the Lord’s return we are told in Matthew 24:20 – But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath. Why would Jesus say this if we weren’t supposed to keep the Sabbath?

    Other verses:
    Mark 2:27 – And he said to them, “the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath”
    Hebrews 4:9 – So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.

    I know we have all read this…
    Matthew 5:17-19 – “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    Exodus 20:10 – but the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you.

    As you all know there are other verses as well. I know Colossians 2:16 is quoted out of context in this discussion. One must read all of chapter 2 to get the full context of the verse.

  4. I agree with you the Sabbath is still the law, but the passages from Romans and Colossians are illustrative – I think the questions really are:
    What is the Sabbath?
    What does it mean to keep it?
    Why do we have the liberty assigned in Romans to keep it properly in a way that is different from Exodus 20:10?

    I don’t really have time to think on them and answer now, but I wanted to put that question out there.

  5. -Sabbath is Friday sundown to Saturday sundown. No where in the Bible was it moved to Sunday that I know of.
    -to me it is a Holy day, a day to keep separate, a day to spend with the Lord
    -Do we have the liberty? This is what I am trying to determine. I am stilling looking into Romans 14, but Colossians tells me that some people were keeping the Sabbath and celebrating the Feasts as taught in the Torah. Others were giving these people a hard time. Thus Pauls comment of don’t allow others to question you following the Torah…be your own judge.

  6. Also for our study of the sabbath we have to include Matthew 12 1-5, Mark 2:23-28, Luke 6 1-11.

    If Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath – what does it mean for those that claim him as Lord and Messiah?

    You are correct that the scriptures do not move the Sabbath to Sunday – it is based on a tradition of celebrating the resurrection on the first day of each week. I’m not saying it is required, but doesn’t it then make sense for those who are keeping a day holy to the Lord to do it on the day that commemorates his victory over death, and his victory over the burden of all of our sin?

  7. To answer one of your questions, it does matter what makes sense to man. God is God and He set the Sabbath.

    Just finishing reading Romans 14 and it has nothing to do with the Sabbath. The whole chapter is about eating certain types of foods and whether you can eat them on certain days or not.

    Based on my research this week on the Sabbath, I believe I have greatly sinned against the Lord and led my family to the same sins. Does anyone have anything from Scripture showing that the Sabbath is not required?

    I will look at the other verses provided…

  8. You may want to start at James chapter 2 and heed the warning in Gal 2:21 — I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

    I love verse 10 🙂

    Jam 2:10 — For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

    I for one chose not to get into this “Sabbath keeping “debate as it not only defrauds me but find it eerily close to the bondage I once was in before Christ SET me free.

    Jhn 8:36 — If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

  9. I don’t think you will find any scripture that says the Sabbath is not required. The Lord didn’t abolish the law – he fulfilled it. He is our example of how the law is kept perfectly. The nature of the Sabbath is really the question. Romans 14 is relevant –

    Can you explain how you believe you’ve sinned against the Lord as it relates to the Sabbath?

    I think the text in Romans 14 and Colossians 2 are warning us of the danger of creating seperations between jew and gentile among how we observe the law. Christ fulfilled the requirements of the law (Matthew 5:17) – whatever we do then is done in him and through him to honor him. Because of this shouldn’t our desire to set aside a time that is holy be in light of him and what he has done? I’m not quibbling – I believe you are keep the Sabbath on any day you are convinced in your heart brings the greatest honor the Lord who set you free. I won’t argue – except against requiring that everyone keep the Sabbath in the same way according to some church rule or formula.

  10. I met a minister once who started a new church and due to a very different set of circumstances they met on Friday nights. Now that was odd to me but it worked great for them. Justasheep answered this perfectly with the response from Romans 14.

  11. Again Romans 14 has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with the Lord’s Sabbath. Read the entire chapter. It is about food and eating certain things on certain days or eating food that was a sacrifice to an Idol/foreign god.

    Galations 2:21 – Obeying the Sabbath has nothing to do with justification or righteousness. The Law/Torah did not either. The Torah’s goal or end was the Messiah. This verse has nothing to do with the question at hand…obedience to God’s commands.

    With James 2 are you saying we do not need to obey God’s commands? Not sure what you mean here. Any sin makes one under condemnation of God. We have separated ourselves from God (I am not saying one is not saved anymore).

    Matthew 5:17 is Jesus saying he came to fulfill the law, but yet also states that he is/was getting rid of the law. Later in verse 19 he states “Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

    So if you believe any day can be set aside, how do you come up with this? Is it Biblical? The only rules I see for the Sabbath is Exodus 20:10 – but the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you.

    I think I have my answer. I cannot find anywhere in the Bible that the Sabbath was done away with, that it was moved to a different day, or that the way to keep it holy has changed.

    Thank you for sending verses for me to research and pray about!

  12. Oh you are so welcome about the verses…but I got a sneaky feeling these verses were known already 🙂

    Rom 14:5 — One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike.

    Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
