MORNINGTIME 2346
 
REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO KEEP IT HOLY. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: IN IT THOU SHALT NOT DO ANY WORK, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: Exodus 20:8-10. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord : whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, HE SHALL SURELY BE PUT TO DEATH. Exodus 31:15. And he said unto them, THE SABBATH WAS MADE FOR MAN, and not man for the Sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath. Mark 2:27-28. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. (That rest is Christ). For he that is entered into His rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Hebrews 4:9-10. The Sabbath of the Old Testament was a legal Word from the Lord telling His people to take one day a week and do no work, but to think on the things of the Lord. The seriousness of this requirement was so important that if you actually did any kind of work, you were to be killed. So how would that work in today's society??? That was Old Testament. Today is the New Testament with a Christ full of Mercy and Grace, no one dies today for mowing the grass on Sunday! "Everyone works because there's no consequence for working on Sunday". What they don't understand is that judgment for working on the Sabbath has gone from the physical realm, (Just kill‘em all) to the Spiritual Realm, (they will die in their sins). The Christians are to follow Christ, obey Christ, Worship Christ, AND REST IN CHRIST all week long. Rest in Christ and strengthen yourself as you Live in Christ and He in you, all 7 days of the week. Take a day and don't forsake the gathering of the Believers. Christ has done all the work it will take to get you into Heaven, so Follow Him, Rest in Him, and, Be Blessed.
