AG-02 The Lord’s Sabbath – A Sign Between God And The Jews

Click onto the link to see the videos and typed text on the blog.

At this time of day most of the people who receive my posts, and reside in various nations around the world, are being blessed by the presence of the Lord’s Sabbath. The Sabbath is a special time of each week. The Sabbath begins each Friday at Sundown, and continues until the following Saturday at Sundown. The seventh day of the week is the Sabbath Day. No other day of the week can be substituted for the Sabbath Day. In essence, no one can contract a large excavator, dig up the seventh day of the week and move it to any other day of the week. So, we can clearly state that “the Sabbath Day is the Seventh Day, and can only be the Seventh Day.” We may want to make another day of the week a day of rest but no other day of the week can become “The Lord’s Sabbath.” The scriptures that follow clearly show that the seventh day of the week is special,and was made holy by God, to all of His creation. However, The Sabbath was given by God, only to the Jews to keep; and was given as a sign between God and Israel, forever! Please consider the words of the accompanying videos of worship and praise. Allow yourself to enter into a time of intimate worship of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.

Genesis 1:31-2:3 New King James Version (NKJV)

The following verses show that God made the seventh day holy. Therefore, the seventh day is holy to all of His creation.

31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

1 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

Exodus 16:6-26 New King James Version (NKJV)

The time frame from God’s making the seventh day holy until the time of its being called the Sabbath Day was 2513 years. There was no mention of the Sabbath until the time of this writing.

6 Then Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, “At evening you shall know that the Lord has brought you out of the land of Egypt. 7 And in the morning you shall see the glory of the Lord; for He hears your complaints against the Lord. But what are we, that you complain against us?” 8 Also Moses said, “This shall be seen when the Lord gives you meat to eat in the evening, and in the morning bread to the full; for the Lord hears your complaints which you make against Him. And what are we? Your complaints are not against us but against the Lord.”

9 Then Moses spoke to Aaron, “Say to all the congregation of the children of Israel, ‘Come near before the Lord, for He has heard your complaints.’” 10 Now it came to pass, as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud.

11 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 12 “I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, ‘At twilight you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread. And you shall know that I am the Lord your God.’”

13 So it was that quails came up at evening and covered the camp, and in the morning the dew lay all around the camp. 14 And when the layer of dew lifted, there, on the surface of the wilderness, was a small round substance, as fine as frost on the ground.15 So when the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, “What is it?” For they did not know what it was.

And Moses said to them, “This is the bread which the Lord has given you to eat. 16 This is the thing which the Lord has commanded: ‘Let every man gather it according to each one’s need, one omer for each person, according to the number of persons; let every man take for those who are in his tent.’”

17 Then the children of Israel did so and gathered, some more, some less. 18 So when they measured it by omers, he who gathered much had nothing left over, and he who gathered little had no lack. Every man had gathered according to each one’s need. 19 And Moses said, “Let no one leave any of it till morning.” 20 Notwithstanding they did not heed Moses. But some of them left part of it until morning, and it bred worms and stank. And Moses was angry with them. 21 So they gathered it every morning, every man according to his need. And when the sun became hot, it melted.

22 And so it was, on the sixth day, that they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one. And all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses. 23 Then he said to them, “This is what the Lord has said: ‘Tomorrow is a Sabbath rest, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Bake what you will bake today, and boil what you will boil; and lay up for yourselves all that remains, to be kept until morning.’” 24 So they laid it up till morning, as Moses commanded; and it did not stink, nor were there any worms in it.25 Then Moses said, “Eat that today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field. 26 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, the Sabbath, there will be none.”

Exodus 31:12-18 New King James Version (NKJV)

As anyone can see from the scriptures, the only people who were present when God established the Sabbath, and the Law, were the children of Israel. No other group, or groups, of people were present. No other group, or groups of people, were privileged to know these communications that God had with Moses, Aaron and the children of Israel. No other people, other than the children of Israel, were bound by the conditions of the Sabbath and the Law, but all of God’s created beings should honor that which God has made, ordained, sanctified, set apart, made holy.

The Sabbath Law

12 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 13 “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. 14 You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people. 15 Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’”

18 And when He had made an end of speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Moses two tablets of the Testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.

Consider how you can honor the Sabbath Day, “the Lord’s Sabbath.”

  1. It is early in the morning here a bit of trouble sleeping. I have caught a couple of your posts. I also went to the link on your last post. Amazing. I am liking the fact that I understand the Old testament a bit more.
