8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of Yahuah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days Yahuah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yahuah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
On this day today from Friday at sunset till, Saturday at sunset is the Sabbath! At least for some of us it is. None of us are certain as to when this day actually begins! There a lot of disagreement on when the Sabbath actually begins, because the Bible does not specify to when it begins. Myself personally i’ve prayed to Yahuah to help me by sending the Holy Spirit to guide me on this matter. I feel that Friday at sunset seems right to start this Holy day! So for me today is the Sabbath! Until tonight at sunset.
I know your wondering why i’m writing this on the Sabbath and i’ll tell you. Yahusha never stopped His ministry even on the Sabbath! He even told this ruler of the synagogue this! Here in:
And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. And when Yahusha saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified Yahuah. And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Yahusha had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day. Yahusha then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.
Luke 13:10-17 | KJV |
So doing the work of Yahuah is not a sin on the Sabbath! Matter of fact it brings honor to Yahuah and anytime is the right time to preach the gospel! We have to eat, so also preparing food was ok or gathering it to was allowed. Here in:
And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn. And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him? How he went into the house of Yahuah in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him? And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Master also of the sabbath.
Mark 2:23-28 | KJV |
Man makes up rules that have nothing to do with the keeping of the Sabbath and as i tell you over and over to pray for the Holy Spirit to be your guide in all matters pertaining to the laws of Yahuah! Trust no man! I’ll post this scripture once more, so it might get thru to you once and for all:
Jeremiah 17:5 – Thus saith the Yahuah; Cursed [be] the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from Yahuah.
It says here you are cursed for putting your trust in man. So men are not to be trusted read the Bible! Pray For the Holy Spirit to guide you in all Spiritual matters. He doesn’t say listen to these preachers or fathers, who are not in anyway holy whatsoever. Most of you would rather believe your teachers over the Holy Spirit, but like it says in the scripture you are cursed for doing so.
So keeping the Sabbath day holy does not mean you can’t do anything at all! It just means not to go to work and above all spend time with your families and use this day to play with your kids, spend time with you wifes and families! All of you together should make time to praise the Father any way you can. Do this by praising Him in all things you do.
Play Bible trivia! Teach your children the ways of Yahusha! Teach them how to pray. The model prayer is just that a model for praying! Not to be repeated over and over to the Father! Teach them to pray from their hearts, not from repetition but from love for Yahuah. Get them ready to be ministers for Yahusha! Read this parents:
6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of Yahuah.
The Sabbath is the perfect opportunity to teach the whole family the ways and laws of Yahuah. So sit down together. Pray first for the Holy Spirit to be upon you, then get out your Bibles, one for each member of the family! So they can follow along with you. Read it and let the Holy spirit explain all that you study to you families. Remember the man is the head of the family, unless there is not one present then the woman will take his place. Remember you women, when taking the head of the family to cover your heads out of respect for the Father!:
1 Corinthians 11:5 – But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with [her] head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
You children obey your parents! It says here in:
6 Children, obey your parents in Yahuah: for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.”
Bless you and your families on this special day of Yahuah!
