As I’m beginning to put this together, it is Friday, the day before the Lord’s weekly Holy Sabbath day! I’ve decided to take a short break from the “Counterfeit Christianity” series, allow for a deep breath, (that is a lot of information to digest), and present the law of The Lord, specifically;
JESUS’ HOLY SABBATH!
“TO THE UNKNOWN GOD, WHOM THEREFORE YE IGNORANTLY WORSHIP, HIM I DECLARE UNTO YOU!” Acts 17: 23
Brothers and sisters let me first state, and it must be understood, Israelite teachers (Priests of God), past and present, teach the word of God (Old and New Testament), and will present the history related to it!
We do not add to the word and quite frankly oftentimes as a two edge sword the word cuts those who teach it and everyone that hears it.
Ecclesiastes 7: 20 There is (no man) that sins not!
NOT WILLFUL SIN!
WHO AND WHAT IS AN HEBREW ISRAELITE?
God’s business is (Man)!
Thus says the Lord God of ISRAEL;
2 Timothy 4: 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
Hebrews 4: 12 For the word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two edge sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
THE WORD OF GOD (SWORD) EDIFIES, MOVES US, CUTS, CORRECTS, EVEN ENCOURAGES US!
(It) Romans 10: 8, INSTRUCTS US IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD! HIS MIND!
YA GOTTA GET GOD’S SPIRITUAL MIND, BEFORE YOU CAN GET GOD’S SPIRITUAL BODY!
TO BE BORN AGAIN!
Let us always remember, although Jesus’ death was prophesied throughout the scriptures, even in Genesis, not only did Israel insist that the Romans kill the Lord Jesus, (because of his doctrine), the Israelite prophets were incarcerated, beaten and the (apostles) all Israelites, were also murdered, beaten, and chased all over creation for preaching that same doctrine that Jesus the Christ taught!
As you read your Bible KJV, you will find none of what is in it, is being taught throughout the world today!
(see chart below)
And before the Lord’s return, many that hold that same doctrine of Christ (which we preach), if we do not make it to the Lord’s place of safety, at the time appointed, we will suffer the same evil retribution for the exact same reasons;
THE DOCTRINE OF JESUS CHRIST!
NOTICE VERSE 7?
“SAINTS” OF GOD!”
ISN’T THAT WHAT EVERY CHRISTIAN IS CLAIMING TO BE?
My hope and prayer is that many more people will begin to believe in the true and living God, and come to realize how critically important it is to honor the Lord’s COMMANDMENTS, STATUTES and ORDINANCES, and seek him out!
Deuteronomy 11: 13 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, that I will give you the rain in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
Isaiah 56: 6 Also the son of the stranger, that join themselves to the lord, to serve him and to love the name of the lord, to be his servants, everyone that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant.
7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine alter; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer FOR ALL PEOPLE.
Brothers and sisters, that includes every man, woman and child.
The Laws of God are for (EVERYONE!)
But considering the current state of the world, and where we are in prophecy, I believe many are beginning to seriously search for the true and living God, the “GREAT I AM!”
Yes, many more I hope and believe would honor the Lord’s holy sabbath as well, if they only knew how.
And for those who question knowledge, knowing how to honor the Lord’s holy Sabbath and serve Jesus (God of Israel) is the topic of today!
So together, let’s take a look at how the “Biblical” Jesus, the “Word,” God of Israel says we are to keep (His) Holy Sabbath Day(s)?
We’ve shown through significant, substantial, verified, documented, biblical and additional historical facts, man’s monumental conspiracy against God (since Israel’s final dispersion into captivity), and how that conspiracy is orchastrated by satan the devil, utilizing religion to deceive the world!
But now that the Lord’s Priests are at last awakening from their designated sleep, and discovering their true Identity, moving forward, it is imperative that Israel indeed the world realize, its is not enough to simply scream and shout “I’m Israel,” “I’m Israel,” whether (physically or spiritually,) and think that will be sufficient towards receiving Eternal Life!
After all, there were physical Israelites that kept Sabbath, when Israel was thrown out of the land, and removed into captivity by JESUS himself!
Many in God’s Priest nation were also Sabbath keepers when the Lord made the statement;
“I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be…….”
The God of Israel had James to write:
James 2: 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all!
As I’ve stated before, as followers of Christ, the (Captain of our Salvation), we are either all in, or all out!
THE OLD ADAGE:
“You serve the Lord your way, I’ll serve him my way!”
THE LORD DOES NOT OPERATE THAT WAY!
JAMES WROTE; IF YOU BREAK THE SABBATH, YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE A LIAR, MURDERER, THIEF, SODOMITE, ADULTERER, …..
Revelation 3: 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art luke warm and neither cold nor hot I will spue thee out of my mouth.
And for those Israelites who think it ok to attempt to hoard the word of God to themselves thinking only the Priest nation of God can receive salvation, (some Hebrews thought the same thing in Paul’s day, that is nothing new)!
Or those who sit back and complain or blame everyone else for what has befallen the nation of Israel (at the hands of our ancestors and continued even this day), or those who would soley focus on what someone is or isn’t!
ISRAEL, IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP, (AND) TO LEARN ABOUT THE (BIBLICAL) JESUS AND TEACH THE NATIONS ABOUT HIM! AND HOW THEY TOO MIGHT RECEIVE SALVATION!
TIME IS SHORT!
Jesus told Israel his Priest;
“For this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations!”
Israel’s job commissioned by Jesus, the Lord of Host is to teach the rest of the sons and daughters of Adam how (they) too can receive the Adoption into the family of God, just the way Jacob and his seed did!
THE ELOHIEM. WHAT IS THE GODHEAD
Honoring the Lord’s Holy Sabbath day is crucial towards that goal.
Remember what Paul wrote?
Romans 3: 1. What advantage then hath the Jew? Or what profit is there of circumcision?
2. Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.
b: an authoritative or wise expression or answer.
To That End,
BROTHERS AND SISTERS, CONCERNING SALVATION, HERE IS AN ORACLE OF GOD!
THE LORD’S SABBATH!
Keeping the Lord’s Holy Sabbath(s) is perhaps one of the most important aspects of Bible Christianity.
The Sabbath(s) are not only a COMMANDMENT to keep, all of the Lords SABBATH DAY(S) point to much bigger prophetic events in the future!
Leviticus 23: 1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feast of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations even these are my feast.
4 These are the feast of the Lord, even holy convocation, which ye shall proclaim
in their seasons.
- HOLY CONVOCATION:
Definition of convocation
1. a: an assembly of persons called together to a meeting.
A holy convocation means a holy gathering / meeting!
WITH THE KING JAMES BIBLE!
THE LORD TOLD US HE’D HAVE HIS WORD PUBLISHED OFTEN!
BUT DO YOU KNOW WHY?
WHAT IS THE LANGUAGE OF GOD https://godheadexpansion.com/2020/02/23/what-is-the-language-of-god/
For example, my family and I go to Bible class on the Sabbath day and have a holy convocation with other brothers and sisters of (various nationalities) who are seeking the salvation (reward) that is available to all men.
The salvation that JESUS said he would be bringing with him when he returns, even the first resurrection!
But on the weekly Sabbath days when my family and I are unable to make it to class, through the advent of technology, (we) connect via internet or phone and keep Sabbath along with many others throughout the world!
We’ll read about it a little later!
Take a look at what the Lord says;
Ironically in the process of putting this together I ran across a current post on the internet, belonging to the Bible class I attend. It happens to fit exactly into the topic we are discussing today! So I’ve decided to add it in this blog!
In addition to the Lord’s weekly Sabbath, the God of Israel (Jesus) has several annual Sabbaths that he commands mankind to keep, and each one can be found listed in Leviticus 23, as well as several other places in the word of God, OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT!
And although since Jesus death and resurrection (ultimate sacrifice) we no longer kill the animal sacrifice (all of the Lords annual High days are required even today)!
How important are the Lord’s Sabbath(s)?
The God of Israel’s plan for man’s salvation is indicated through all of his Sabbath day(s)!
Weekly Sabbath too!
THE PLAN OF GOD
JESUS’ PROPHETIC WEEK https://godheadexpansion.com/2020/04/02/jesus-prophetic-week/
FEAST OF THE LORD 2019
The Passover represents the passing over of your sins, and the only way your sins will be passed over is if you bring yourself under the blood of (Jesus), the Sacrificial Lamb of God
FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD!
On the 15th day of the (1st) month Abib (typically March or April, depending on the New Moon), the Lord brought Israel out of Egypt.
The Feast of Unleavened Bread represents Israel’s deliverance. This is also a spiritual deliverance.
This is the year the Lord will return and also the first resurrection.
MEMORIAL OF THE BLOWING OF TRUMPETS:
It is to remind us what will take place prior to the Lord’s return, and also what He will do when He arrives.
DAY OF ATONEMENT:
This day represents the Lord making atonement for our sins and also the day He will stand on the earth.
FEAST OF TABERNACLES (Ingathering):
This represents the day the Lord will start to gather Israel and all the people that brought themselves under the banner of Israel, Israelites!
THE 8TH DAY:
THAT GREAT DAY!
This represents the day when there are no more flesh and blood people. Everyone who made the first and/or second resurrection is now a spirit being with the Father and Jesus in New Jerusalem.
ALL ANNUAL FEAST DAYS, ARE A COMMANDMENT TO BE KEPT;
IN THEIR SEASON!
New moon for the seventh month appears in Jerusalem at 7:30 a.m. (Jerusalem Time) on Wednesday, September 20, 2017
I won’t ask, do you know what day of the week is the Lord’s Sabbath? Oops! Most everyone understands its on the (7th) day of the week! And no, Monday is not the (1st day of the week)!
That Would Be SUNDAY!
HAPPY WRONG YEAR!
The Lord’s Priests – Israel’s responsibility is, to inform other nations of what thus says the Lord, the penilties for not doing thus and worshiping pagan Gods!
Not to convince anyone of what is written. What individuals do with that information is up to them!
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS!
The Lord tells us “Choose Life and Live”!
Our Individual Salvation Is In Our Individual Hands!
Isaiah 55: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Malachi 3: 6 For I am the LORD, I change not;
Like all the other days of the week, month and year, when the Lord created and set apart the Seventh Day, man had not been created! But did you know the seventh day is so important, that the seventh day was the only day of the week the (Lord) gave a name?
Not just a number?
Exodus 20: 11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the SABBATH DAY AND HALLOWED it.
After the God of Israel told us how to approach him in Exodus 20: 1-7, the very next thing our creator told mankind was what day (he) sanctified (set apart) for us to honor to worship him.
The Lord’s Sabbath is just (that important!)
You might hear some less informed individuals say “I serve and worship Jesus any and everyday!”
Well that is fine.
The “Biblical Jesus” has an order, a “protocol” to everything he does. Remember, “God is a God of order and knowledge!”
We’re going to show how to honor and keep the weekly Sabbath!
Please, stay with me!
Exodus 20: 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 the LORD 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:
That covers just about Everybody and Everything of relevance! In other scriptures, the Lord tells man how even the land is to keep her Sabbath! A year of rest for the land!
This is Information relevant to growing food, feeding ourselves and taking care of the Earth! Do you realize there’d be no need for fertilizers, pesticides or any chemicals!
Check this out!
Leviticus 25: 1 And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD.
3 Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof; 4 But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.
Even during this, Israel’s captivity!
Leviticus 26: 34.
How important is the Sabbath day? God gave man a command to keep it! Not a request! Then he told us the consequences or rewards!
1 John 5: 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
Keeping God’s Sabbath is just as important as;
- Not Lying!
- Not Stealing!
- Not Committing Adultery!
- Not Killing!
The LORD’S HOLY SABBATH, Is LAW!
And as it is with the COMMANDMENTS and DIETARY LAW, there is a GREAT PRICE TO PAY for those who deliberately defile it.
Proverbs 28: 9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
(That’s Right! God will NOT hear you if you deliberately break his laws! SABBATHS too!)
Proverbs 21: 27 The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?
John in Revelation is telling us our prayers are our sacrifice!
Revelation 5: 8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
Exodus 31: 14 Ye shall keep the Sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
Before the Lord removed judgement from the hand of man, the God of Israel had men stoned for defiling his Holy Sabbath!
Matthew 13: 24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
In other scriptures;
Ecclesiastes 8: 11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
As is the case with all the Lord’s Commandments!
But we’re also going to read about the Ultimate blessing for those who keep the Laws, Statutes And Ordinances of God.
THE LORD’S HOLY
SABBATH DAY PROTOCOL!
Brothers and Sisters the Lord told us;
Isaiah 1: 18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD:
19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Obedient to what?
20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
Refuse and rebel against what?
It is an error to think none of this matters, and to base our decisions on misinformation or lack of research!
We can not pick which laws we chose to keep and which one we chose not to keep! God knows what we have need of!
The God of Israel (Jesus), knows we have jobs! He tells us we have need of work!
When Adam and Eve sinned against God, that set in motion the punishment of mankind for disobedience to God’s laws, and introduced God’s Command that we must work to live and feed ourselved and our families, and man’s DEATH!
Genesis 3: 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
1 Timothy 5: 8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
God knows we may even have the sick to look after, or there maybe circumstances beyond our control that may periodically cause us to not be able to keep his Holy Sabbaths!
God made provisions for those circumstances. And not just for his weekly Sabbath but his (7) seven annual Sabbaths as well!
Those circumstances are what God considers unwillful sin! And we’re not held accountable. But, when it is within our power to keep Sabbath(s) as servants of the most high God;
WE KEEP THEM!
Luke 14: 3And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day? 4And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go;
5 And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day? 6And they could not answer him again to these things.
Matthew 12: 11And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? 12How much then is a man better than a sheep Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
Mark 2: 23And 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. 24And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?
25And 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? 26How he went into the house of God 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? 27And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: 28Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
(The Lord’s Sabbath(s) are not only about REST. They’re also about OBEDIENCE! The God of Israel tells us how to prepare for all of his Holy Sabbaths!
BROTHERS AND SISTERS, ACCORDING TO WORD OF GOD, THE DAY BEGINS AT SUNDOWN – EVEN – EVENING!
EVE MEANS BEGINNING! WHEN THE SKY IS DARK FROM EAST TO WEST, ACCORDING TO GOD’S WORD, WE ARE INTO A NEW DAY!
The Lord’s Sabbath(s) point to a much Greater event in man’s future!
God’s Commandments, laws, statutes and ordinances are (Not) given for only Israel to keep! They were given so that (All) men can receive God’s gift of Eternal Life!
Romans 6: 20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 21What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
22But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
TO ALL MANKIND!
So that (ALL) can obtain SALVATION from the wages of sin (the second death), brought upon (ALL) men through the disobedience of Adam and Eve!
Biblical definition of sin; “is the transgression of the law!”
Some will say “you can’t keep them old laws. There are too many”!
They go on to say “man it’s 613 commandments. You can’t keep them all”!
Brothers and sisters to be clear, the entire word of God is a commandment! The mind of God!
REMEMBER WHAT WE READ THAT JAMES WROTE?
This is (Not) a quest for democracy!
It’s the Lord’s dictatorship!
ARE YOU NAKED?
And to say the stakes are high is an:
WHAT WOULD YOU NOT DO TO BECOME GOD, A MEMBER OF THE GODHEAD?
JUST DO IT!
I’ll leave it here, look;
John 5: 8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 9And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath. 10The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
16And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. 17But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
18Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
(If we are Christians, we are followers of Christ right? We do what Christ did! Do we not call ourselves “children of God?” Is God not our Father?)
As is the case with Jesus, we will receive the SAME REWARD!
Thats why Jesus is call the “Captain of our salvation”!
1 Corinthians 15: 20But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the (FIRSTFRUITS) of them that slept. 21For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam (ALL) die, even so in Christ shall (ALL) be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: Christ the FIRSTFRUITS; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
(Eternal Life) is one side of the high stakes reward! The other side of those high stakes rewards is Eternal Death. And when you really understand Eternal Death you realize it is another form of Eternal Life as well!
If you end up Burning in the Lake of Fire with flesh worms eating on you, (1) BILLION YEARS later, you will still be there!
Take a guess who will receive that reward?)
DON’T BE THE LAWLESS
Psalms 111: 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do is COMMANDMENTS: his praise endureth for ever.
HOW DO WE HONOR THE LORD’S SABBATH?
Jesus tells us:
Leviticus 24: 22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God.
Then he told Moses;
Exodus 31: 13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.
Leviticus 23: 1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even THESE ARE MY FEAST!
(GOD’S FEAST, SABBATH DAYS INCLUDED)!
Verse :3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an HOLY CONVOCATION; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.
(THAT’S THE HOLY GATHERING WE MENTIONED EARLIER!)
Matthew 18: 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
(OPEN THE BIBLE [KJV] AND READ STUDY! TO DEVELOP THE MIND OF THE LORD! NOT SITTING IN FRONT OF SOMEONE PRESENTING THEIR OWN THOUGHTS AND IDEAS!)
Exodus 35: 1 And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them, These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them.
(NO KINDLING A FIRE!)
Except on the cooking feast days!
2 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death. 3Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.
Exodus 16: 1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.
4 Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no. 5And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.
22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses. 23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
24 And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein. 25 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the LORD: to day ye shall not find it in the field. 26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.
27 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none. 28 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws? 29 See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day. 30 So the people rested on the seventh day.
(Simply stated, prepare enough on the (6) day to also eat on the (7) day!)
(DO NOT WORK!)
Exodus 20: 10But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD 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:
(Thats anyone that Serves the God of Israel – the STRANGER TOO!)
Deuteronomy 5: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.
BEAR NO BURDEN ON THE LORD’S
HOLY SABBATH DAY!
(DO NOT SALE NOR PURCHASE!)
Nehemiah 10: 31 And if the people of the land bring ware or any victuals on the sabbath day to sell, that we would not buy it of them on the sabbath, or on the holy day: and that we would leave the seventh year, and the exaction of every debt.
(The Lord said to remember his Sabbath day! It is PROPHETIC! It points to the Lord’s day of rest.)
Hebrews 4: 4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. 6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
If you are a Christian and you wish not to keep the Lord’s Holy Sabbaths, the (7th) day, thats totally up to you! But don’t attempt to rationalize the scriptures to fit your lifestyle.
Like Kora and Dathan. The Word says they fought against God too!
So how serious is this commandment?
Isaiah 58: 13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
14 Then thou shall delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father; for the moith of the Lord hath spoken it.
But we are (ALL) free to chose!
Deuteronomy 30: 15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; 16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; 18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it. 19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Brothers and sisters that includes worshipping that other Jesus Apostle Paul warned us about!
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS!
Once again, the Lord’s Sabbath day is also Prophetic. Pointing to a much Greater time in the future!!
Look at this! Remember we read;
John 5: 17 17But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
Check this out!
Genesis 2: 1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Notice man was not on the scene yet?
But Jesus said he and the father were still working right?
Didn’t we read that?
Vs. 4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, 5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
God did rest! After he created the heavens and the earth in (6) six thousand years! God rested in mans 1st thousand year!
Man’s first thousand year of existance, was the universe’s (7) seventh thousand Year.
Remember what the Lord told Adam?
Genesis 2: 16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for IN THE DAY THAT THOU EATEST THEREOF THOU SHALT SURELY DIE.
Brothers and sisters Adam live to be (930 years old). Thats NINE HUNDRED and THIRTY YEARS!
In Genesis 5:27 Methuselah only lived 969 years. No man has ever lived a day! A thousand years!
Why is that?
2 Peter 3: But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Adam sinned before a 1,000 years and in that day he sinned, he died!
Let’s Take A Look At This!
(Lords Day Of Rest!)
Day Of The Lord!
Remember Gen 2: 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
And he did, but;
Hebrews 4: 3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
(Thats because the Lord created the world in Six Thousand years! Then rested. Man (Adam and Eve) sinned, God went back to work to save his creation!
Remember death was not a part of God’s creation. Man introduced death into it when Eve sinned and Adam went along with it!
By the time of Jesus returns mankind will have been on the earth for 6,000 years!
Heb 4: 1Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 2For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. 6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Jonh saw it!…………..
Rev 1: 9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was in the Spirit on the LORD’S DAY, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet.
PSALMS 90: 4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
2 Peter 3:8 A Day To The Lord Is A Thousand Years And A Thousand Years As One Day!
Rev 20: 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had receivedhis mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This isthe first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
(Brothers and sisters this is that Day Of The Lord, 1st Resurrection, Lord’s Day Of Rest!)
Also the Lord’s Holy Day of Atonement!
Did you know there are two resurrections? One of which is just ahead of us! The 1,000 years of peace!
Luke 1: 26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
28And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. 29And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
(Davids Throne was in Hebron and Jerusalem! On the Earth!)
Matthew 6: 10 ;Thy kingdom come thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.
Zechariah 14: 1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
But the Lord’s Feast Days Will Be Enforced In Jesus’ Kingdom!
(1,000 years of peace)!
Revelation 20: 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
But guess who else kept the Lord’s Sabbath(s)? Even after Jesus’ death and resurrection!
FEAST OF PENTECOST!
Acts 2: 1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem JEWS, DEVOUT MEN, OUT OF EVERY NATION UNDER HEAVEN.
Acts 18: 1After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth; 4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.
Acts 13: 42 42And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.
Verse :44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.
WHO ARE THE GENTILES?
Jesus told his disciples! They knew about the Day Of The Lord!
Matthew 19: 28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
(Even before the Father’s Kingdom New Jerusalem!)
Revelation 21: 1And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
The Father’s Kingdom, the 8th Day! There Will Be No More Flesh And Blood!

And the Lord’s Feast Days Will Be Enforced In The Father’s Kingdom Too!
