The True Sabbath 1/7

Source: THE BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY OF LIFE.

The subject of God's 7th Day Sabbath is one of the most misunderstood subject of modern religion and Churches. Yet, God says that His Sabbath is a SIGN between Him and the true Christians and Jews. This means that any Christian, Jew, or Church that does not observe God's 7th Day Sabbath is automatically identified as a false Christian, a false Church, and a non-Jew! The 7th Day Sabbath also represents the completion and stability of all of God's creation.

In addition to the weekly 7th Day Sabbath, God also has several annual Sabbaths that the world is totally unaware of! Without these Sabbaths, the world is full of troubles, conflicts, wars, corruption, immorality, poverty, and the worsening Climate Change disasters!

By: LOPE COLUMNA, MESSIANIC-KABBALIST PASTOR GENERAL, The BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY OF LIFE

The Jewish Sages said: "The world was lacking Sabbath..."

The last creation of God on the 6th Day was Man (Adam). And God knows that with the physical Earth, the whole Universe, and Man alone, they are unstable and cannot exist for so long. They need a very important something that will assure their eternal existence.

What is this very important "SOMETHING" that will guarantee the abundant life and peaceful existence of Man and the Universe?

And how did God create it?

GOD SHABATH ON THE 7TH DAY

"... HE RESTED (SHABATH) on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. (Gen 2:2 KJV)

"And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had RESTED (SHABATH) from all his work which God created and made. (Gen 2:3 KJV)

The Jewish Sages asked: What was created after God rested (Heb. SHABATH)? Answer: "Tranquility, Satisfaction, Serenity and Calm."

The " Tranquility, Satisfaction, Serenity, and Calm" are the abilities to:

  1. sense the spiritual behind the material.
  2. see an entity beyond its physical appearance, to appreciate its spiritual content.
  3. appreciate the inner truth.
  4. look at a person or an event and sense the Godly message that he, she, or the event communicates.

This is what God endowed Man with on the Sabbath, the ability to appreciate the spiritual content of each entity, the truth that lies at its core. This is what distinguishes the Sabbath Day from the other 6 days of the week. Sabbath is the Special Day of physical rest, but of more importance, it is the Day that is refreshing to the Soul.

REMEMBER: THE TRUE SABBATH IS GOD-MADE, NOT YOUR CHURCH'S MAN-MADE SABBATH!

"But the seventh day is THE SABBATH OF THE LORD thy God... (Exo 20:10 KJV)

"... Verily MY SABBATHS ye shall keep... that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. (Exo 31:13 KJV)

"Ye shall keep MY SABBATHS, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD. (Lev 19:30 KJV)

See also Genesis 2:2-3.

SABBATH REST IS NOT ONLY THE STOPPAGE OF WORK. SABBATH REST IS MORE OF THE "RECHARGING" OF THE SOUL RATHER THAN THE BODY!

During the other 6 days of the week, we focus more on our body needs and efforts, with the tendency to neglect the needs of our souls. When Sabbath comes, it is a God-designed time and opportunity to focus on the needs of our souls. As we focus on our souls, our bodies also benefit.

Thus, Sabbath Rest is not merely the stoppage of work, or relaxation, doing nothing. Rest is more of the soul rather than the body. Something happens within the soul during the Sabbath, a shift of perception that enlivens us. We begin to see the reality of the world around us. We gain understanding, and that understanding lifts up and connects our souls to God.

SABBATH IS A UNITING INTERFACE BETWEEN THE PHYSICAL AND THE SPIRITUAL, BETWEEN MAN AND GOD
