Shabbat
(Sabbath)

In addition to honoring all of God’s commanded Feasts, we keep the biblical weekly Sabbath (Friday sunset to Saturday sunset) (Genesis 1:5, 8, 13, 19, 23, 31). This is a time of rest [from our labors] and spiritual reflection. It points back to creation and to Passover (symbolic of our deliverance from sin (Egypt)). It also points forward to the second coming of Messiah (Millennium rule of the Messiah) (2 Peter 3:8; Revelation 20:4-5)). Six days men are to do their own work and the seventh is the Lord’s (Deuteronomy 5:12-15).

For six thousand years man and Satan do their own work and the seven thousandth year is the Lord’s Day (Millennium) – the rule of Messiah (Hebrews 4:1-11; Revelation 20:4, 2 Peter 3:8).

The Sabbath is also seen in the history of the early church many years after Messiah returned  to His Father in heaven (Acts 1:12; 13:14, 27, 42, 44 LB; 14:1 Amp; 15:21 Amp; 16:13 Amp; 17:2 LB; 18:4, 11 Amp; 24:14 Amp; 25:8 Amp; 28:17; Luke 23:55-56). Isaiah prophesied by the Spirit of God that the Sabbath will be in the millennium rule of Messiah and the new heaven and new earth (Isaiah 66:22-23).
