Sabbath Day to Keep Holy

Once again Kit Pharo, Pharo Cattle Company, boldly expounds the holiness of God (YHWH) in his Sabbath Day Devotions.

Sabbath Day Devotion

The First Memorial Day Celebration –

Last week, we discussed the Memorial Day celebration that takes place in America to honor those who died fighting in one of America’s wars.   As I pondered this, it dawned on me that God, the creator of the universe, established a weekly memorial day of his creative power and ability.   Unfortunately, most of mankind pretty much ignores this memorial day.

 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so, on the seventh day he rested from all his work.   And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.   (Genesis 2:2-3)

 Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.   Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God.   On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates.   For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day.   Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.   (Exodus 20:8-11)

The Sabbath (seventh day) was given to mankind at the close of creation by God himself as a memorial of his creative power.   God blessed it and made it holy.   Later, God reestablished the importance of the Sabbath when he gave us his Ten Commandments.   The Fourth Commandment (above) is the only one of the ten that begins with the word “remember” – and yet it is the only one of the ten that has all but been forgotten and ignored by most of today’s so-called Christians.   If God did not intend for us to remember the Sabbath day and to keep it holy, why did he give us the Fourth Commandment?

 Many of today’s so-called Christians teach that we now only have Nine Commandments.   In doing so, I believe they are gravely in error.   You may or may not agree… but I am convinced, now more than ever, that God’s Ten Commandments represent HIS standard of holiness – they always have and they always will, at least until heaven and earth disappear (Matthew 5:17-18).

 I have no trouble acknowledging the fact that I can only be saved by God’s grace through my faith in Jesus (Ephesians 2:8-9).    It is impossible for me to be good enough to deserve God’s gift of salvation.   It is impossible for me to earn God’s gift of salvation.   I cannot be saved by obeying the Ten Commandments, because it is impossible for me to perfectly obey them.   From God’s perspective (when he looks at my heart and my mind), I have broken all of his Ten Commandments.

 Even though I cannot be saved by obeying God’s Ten Commandments, I firmly believe I should do my best to obey them – all of them.   Why?   Because they represent God’s standard of holiness.   Disobeying them would be wrong.   If I love God and if I love Jesus, I will obey their commandments (John 14:15, I John 2:3-4 and I John 5:1-3).

Now… don’t get all bent out of shape about what day you GO to church.   I don’t care what day you GO to church – and I don’t think God cares what day you GO to church.   Instead of just GOING to church, I encourage you to start BEING the church.   I realize that BEING the church is a new concept to most of today’s so-called Christians – but that is exactly what God had in mind when he created the church.

 Don’t just GO to church; BE the Church

‘Sunday’ is never mentioned in Scripture. Not one time. And, for those who want to challenge, previously on this blog, I offered a $10,000 reward to anyone who could provide a reference where God changed the day from the seventh to some other day. Still no takers….

Bondage or Blessing?

Is the Law of Yahweh bondage? or blessing?

The Mountain of the Lord

4″ It shall come to pass in the latter days
    that the mountain of the house of the Lord
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
    and it shall be lifted up above the hills;
and peoples shall flow to it,
    and many nations shall come, and say:
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
    to the house of the God of Jacob,
that he may teach us his ways
    and that we may walk in his paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,[a]
    and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
He shall judge between many peoples,
    and shall decide for strong nations far away;
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
    and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
    neither shall they learn war anymore;
but they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree,
    and no one shall make them afraid,
    for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken.
For all the peoples walk
    each in the name of its god,
but we will walk in the name of the Lord our God
    forever and ever.”

Shabbat Shalom!
