Genesis 2:2-3 – And on the seventh day Elohim completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. And Elohim blessed the seventh day and set it apart, because on it He rested from all His work which Elohim in creating had made.
The Sabbath is not an Israelite, or Jewish institution. It was given 2,300 years before the birth of Judah, who is the father of the Jews. It was given nearly 6000 years ago using the genealogies available in the bible.
Many Christians are still falling into the devil’s trap of denying God’s sovereignty over the earth. That trap is the ages-long effort to twist and destroy the observance of the seventh-day Sabbath.
Through Satan’s false information and man’s trust in traditions over the sure Word of Scripture, millions of Christians have been led to discount or even reject the importance of observing the Sabbath. “Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart. Six days you labour, and shall do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of יהוה your Elohim. You do not do any 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. For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore יהוה blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart.” (Exodus 20:8-11). No one disagrees with the clear meaning of this text, yet millions are finding ways not to follow it. Here it is again in Deuteronomy;
Deuteronomy 5:14 – ‘Six days you labour, and shall do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of יהוה your Elohim. You do not do any work – you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates, so that your male servant and your female servant rest as you do.
יהוה established a mark that denoted His absolute right to rule as Lord. He chose to memorialize His display of creative power by setting aside the seventh day of the Creation week as a holy day of rest and remembering.
It is a “sign” of the One and Only True God, by which we are to know Him from false gods.
Ezekiel 20:19-20 -“I am יהוה your Elohim. Walk in My laws, and guard My right-rulings, and do them. And set apart My Sabbaths, and they shall be a sign between Me and you, to know that I am יהוה your Elohim.”
Did you notice that יהוה never called it their Sabbaths, or the Sabbaths, but “MY Sabbaths”?
יהוה destroyed many of the Israelites in the wilderness, because they profaned HIS Sabbath Day. (Ezekiel 20:12-13 / Ezekiel 20:19-21)
יהוה promised blessings to the Israelites (thats including those grafted in) if they would faithfully keep His Sabbaths holy in Isaiah 56:1-3 Thus said יהוה, “Guard right-ruling, and do righteousness, for near is My deliverance to come, and My righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it, guarding the Sabbath lest he profane it, and guarding his hand from doing any evil. And let not the son of the foreigner who has joined himself to יהוה speak, saying, ‘יהוה has certainly separated me from His people,’ nor let the eunuch say, ‘Look I am a dry tree.’ ”
Oh silly man, who are you to change the everlasting statute of יהוה who does not change? If you believe that you can or believe those that attempt to, set-apart any other day to be holy unto The Lord, then you are following the deceiver to the pit. Stop twisting scripture to justify your desire to continue in sin according to the Word!
Remember there is a mark of the beast and Fathers mark. Which mark will you have on That Day?
Blessings in Yeshua’s name!
