The Shabbat is truly a blessing that YAHUAH has given us. I have been keeping Shabbat for 14 years now and I love it more with each passing week. When I was a teenager, I began reading the scriptures cover to cover every year. I remember reading about the Shabbat and wondering why we were resting on the first day, I never saw that it was changing in the scriptures. In my mid-twenties, I worked up the courage to ask the church leadership that I was under at the time about the seventh day Shabbat and they pretty much just said that keeping the seventh day Shabbat was a law that we weren’t bound to anymore. On the surface I accepted their answer but on the inside I believed that they were wrong. If the fourth commandment wasn’t valid anymore, what about the other nine commandments?
Around the time that I started asking questions, I went to one of the office supply stores for a new planner and what did I find????? Planners that started on Monday making Sunday the 7th day of the week!!! What!!!!!
A few months before I turned 26, I met my husband who had grown up a Shabbat keeper. Though we had a few debates early on about the Shabbat, I knew that he was right and I was glad he showed me the historical facts revealing the whole truth.
We’ve been married a little over 14 years and the Shabbat is a permanent foundation in our home. I love it. I look forward to it. As we have continued to grow together, we have learned even more.
Here are some key verses regarding the Shabbat:
Shabbat is keep in heaven and keep by two classes of angels Yovheliym (Jubliees) 2:18-19 – this was spoken to Mosheh by the angel of presence when he was on the mountain 40 days and nights (see Yovheliym 2:1 and 50:13)
