A brand new BEKY Book by Jane Diffenderfer!
In today’s frenetic world, Shabbat is the sacred time where mankind has the opportunity to commune with the Creator and listen to His instruction. Observing the Sabbath and keeping it holy are positive commands; one’s attitude should reflect delight in the day. It is a command all mankind is invited to keep. Believers keep Shabbat not because they have to, but because of Messiah Yeshua, believers want to.
The motivation for honoring the Sabbath should be that of love, for the Father in heaven, His Messiah, and His children. There are bright promises for those who choose to honor the Sabbath as recorded by the prophet Isaiah:
How blessed is the man who does this, And the son of man who takes hold of it; who keeps from profaning the Sabbath, and keeps his hand from doing any evil. (Is. 56:2 NASB)
Also the foreigners, who join themselves to the LORD, To minister to Him, and to love the name of the LORD, To be His servants, everyone, who keeps from profaning the Sabbath, And holds fast My covenant; Even those I will bring to My holy mountain, And make them joyful in My house of prayer. (Is. 56:6-7 NASB)
If because of the Sabbath, you turn your foot from doing your own pleasure on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy day of the LORD honorable, and shall honor it, desisting from your own ways, from seeking your own pleasure, And speaking your own word, then you will take delight in the LORD, And I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; And I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, For the mouth of the LORD has spoken. (Is. 58:13-14 NASB)
Notice the above Scriptures say, “the” Sabbath. Sabbath is not about picking a day and choosing “a” Sabbath, but aligning ourselves with God’s calendar and His weekly day of rest. The Sabbath was made for all mankind, Jew and non-Jew, male and female, to find the joy that only the LORD, Yahweh, can provide. The blessing and vision one receives in following His Divine instruction is life changing. The individual who takes the opportunity to observe the Sabbath enters into a slice of heaven on earth and finds the Sabbath rest in Messiah Yeshua.
