Remember the 👉Sabbath day👈, to keep it holy.
When did the most High ordained this law that we must keep. Is it from the time of Moses or from the beginning of the creation of the world?
This is a day he set aside from all other days and BLESS and SANCTIFY from every other day’s of the week .This means it is a must that we sanctify it as he has commanded us to do because he also santify it and rested
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.
There is an instruction of how to keep the Sabbath, by making sure you cook or baked what you can eat without having to cook or heat anything on Friday after sundown (evening) because we are not allow to cook or kindle any form of fire including using micro wave, boiling kettle etc
We are not also not allowed to do any work which means all type of work must be done before sundown on Friday
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:
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.
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.
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.
3 Ye shall👉 kindle no fire👈 throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.
5 And 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.
23 And he said unto them, this is that which the LORD hath said; tomorrow is the rest of the holy Sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will 👉 bake today,👈 and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
Sabbath day is day the lord commanded that we all come together as Nation of people for holy convocation to eat drink and merry
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.
25 Not 👉forsaking the assembling of ourselves together👈, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
26 For if we👉 sin willfully👈 after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
22 Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart.
What is the consequence of breaking this 4th commandment?
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.
15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be 👉put to death.👈
16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to 👉observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.👈
8 For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the 👉search of their fathers:👈
The bible instructs us to learn and enquire from the doings of our forefathers, which can only be achieved through constant study of the bible. Let’s see how our forefathers deals with this laws
14 And madest known unto them thy holy Sabbath, and commanded them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant:
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.
15 In those days saw I in Judah some treading wine presses on the Sabbath, and bringing in sheaves, and lading asses; as also wine, grapes, and figs, and all manner of burdens, which they brought into Jerusalem on the Sabbath day: and I testified against them in the day wherein they sold victuals.
16 There dwelt men of Tyre also therein, which brought fish, and all manner of ware, and sold on the Sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem.
17 Then I contended with the👉 nobles 👈of Judah, and said unto them, what evil thing is this that ye do, and profane the Sabbath day?
18 Did not your father’s thus, and did not our God bring all this 👉evil upon us👈, and upon this city? Yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the Sabbath.
19 And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the Sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the Sabbath: and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the Sabbath day.
21 Then I testified against them, and said unto them, why lodge ye about the wall? if ye do so again,👉 I will lay hands on you.👈 From that time forth came they no more on the Sabbath.
What was going on here in the book Nehemiah is no different from what is going on today among our people that claim they love God so much with their lips service but will never do anything the lord commanded we do.
Nehemiah cried to the nobles of the people of Israel, which means the people of statute like all the head pastors and reverend in all churches today will be refer as the nobles among our people, Reminding them how the lord brought evil upon Israel for profaning the Sabbath day and they are yet this days breaking the law of the Sabbath.
Which is still happening today among all Christians; there is nothing new under the earth.
2 👉Blessed is the man👈 that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that 👉keepeth the Sabbath from polluting it👈, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
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:
This is a future prophecy of us keeping the Sabbath in the new kingdom that will be set up on this earth
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 the LORD.
Did Christ and the disciples keep this law? Keeping of the Sabbath was described as Jesus Christ custom
16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as 👉his custom👈 was, he went into the synagogue on the 👉Sabbath day,👈 and stood up for to read.
54 And that day was the 👉preparation👈, and the Sabbath drew on.
56 And they returned, and👉 prepared 👈spices and ointments; and 👉rested the Sabbath day👈 according to the commandment.
2 And Paul, as 👉his manner was,👈 went in unto them, and three Sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
2 And when the Sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, from whence hath this man these things? And what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
If Christ in the New Testament and his disciples were keeping this commandment and it is evident that we will continue to keep it in the kingdom to come.
Why are we not keeping the law today according to God that he blessed this 7th day and sanctify it from every other day?
Why do men choose the first day of the week (Sunday) as against the seventh day of the week which is ordained and commanded by God to keep?
25 Who 👉changed the truth of God into a lie,👈 and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
14 Every 👉man is brutish in his knowledge:👈 every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.
15 They are 👉vanity👈, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish.
24 No man can serve👉 two masters:👈 for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve👉 God and mammon👈.
20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. 👉This is the true God,👈 and eternal life.
25 This is thy lot, the portion of thy measures from me, saith the LORD; because thou hast forgotten me, and 👉trusted in falsehood.👈
4 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have 👉despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments👈, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked:
1 John 2:
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. 👉If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.👈
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
This is why Christ was warning us about the last days and the types of shocking judgment he will mete out to our people who love this world more than what the bible teaches and refuse to change and keep the laws and commandments of God before it is too late
21 Not everyone that saith unto me, 👉Lord, Lord👈, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that 👉do the will 👈of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, 👉I never knew you👈: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
What is the will of God Christ was emphasizing as the only way he will acknowledge us to his presence
Psalms 40: 8 I delight to do 👉thy will,👈 O my God: yea, 👉thy law👈 is within my heart.”
24 He that hath small understanding, and feareth God, is better than one that hath much wisdom, and 👉transgresseth the law of the most High.👈
12 👉Blessed is the man👈 whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;
31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
All we need to concentrate on at this stage is how to keep all these laws that you have heard and always make sure you apply it in your daily life.
Never worry about the things which you cannot comprehend but this laws you have heard, hold strong on it till Christ returns.
21 Seek not out things that are 👉too hard for thee👈, neither search the things that are above thy strength.
25 But that which ye have already 👉hold fast till I come.👈
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
28 And I will give him the morning star.
29 He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Happy Holy Sabbath of the Lord
