Exodus 20:8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates.
11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
Behold the 4th Commandments as it was handed down to the people of God at Sinai. Here YHWH God tells the redeemed that they must keep the Sabbath Day Holy, for he has made it Holy.
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” (Vs 8)
And then He says, “For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.” (Vs 11)
How is it that we think that because someone decided to remain in fellowship beyond sunset on the Sabbath that we can transfer God’s Sabbath to another day? Do we not understand How diabolical that is? To take What is Holy and make it common?
“Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them.” (Ezekiel 22:26)
God knows what evil we have done, and it will not go unrewarded.
“And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.” (Revelation 22:12)
Needless to say, this goes for those who have done good works according to His Commandments, but it will also include rewards for those who have profaned His Sabbaths. We will all be judged according to His Commandments!
The same Commandments that he kept for the whole world to witness as an example that thy must follow.
1st John 2:3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.
4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.
6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
Our failure to keep them is an indication that we have not known Yahshua Christ / Jesus. And therefore, are not acquainted with the truth. Keeping his Word is key to having possession of the Holy Spirit. (The Spirit of truth) Therefore if we follow Christ Yahshua, by keeping his Word, it will show in How we live our lives.
We who follow Him, do no work on the Sabbath. We won’t cause anyone else to work either, or allow it in our household. He has set aside the 7th day from the very beginning at the completion of creation. Here is where it was made Holy, ever since day 7.
“If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.
He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.” (John 14:23, 24)
God knows that those who turn from the Word of God, neither love Him, or Follow Him. But they are just trying to use Him to get into heaven. Let me tell you now that if you intend to go to Heaven / The Kingdom, unless you’re abiding in Christ, it can’t happen.
John 10:1 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
There are no shortcuts, we must enter by the Gate. And Yahshua Christ is the gate.
“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” (John 10:9)
Pay attention to what he has said, and obey. This is how his sheep roll. We don’t get to make it up as we go! Our Salvation has been written in the scriptures, if we’re not going to follow what has been written, then perhaps, we should just accept who it is that has become our master.
2nd Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only £He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,
12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Shalom my friends,
