THE SABBATH DAY
2/24/05 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For Timothy, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Thus says The Lord to His servant: Timothy, concerning the Sabbath, the seventh day of each week, Saturday is the day you shall remember and keep holy; yes, you shall keep it holy and rest. You shall do no work on this day, neither shall your wife or children, nor any guest in your house, save that which is needful for your household. You may also do those things which are good and fruitful in My eyes, according to that which I command you. Yet from doing your own pleasure depart and from your own works rest, on the Sabbath day... Walk not in your own way, Timothy, but walk with Me in Mine; rest in Me, and remember. For in this you
12/16/05 From God The Father - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear - Regarding the modern holidays of men
"Have I not given you Holy Days, in which you were to honor My Son? Yet you forget them all, even the seventh day of each week, which you were to remember and keep holy. For I, The Lord, do not change..."
7/16/06 From God The Father - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear"Churches of men, know you not, the seventh day of the week is the day you shall remember and keep holy, and do no works therein except that which is good and upholds the cause of the fatherless, the widow and the needy?!... SUNDAY IS NOT THE SABBATH! Saturday you shall keep! The Lord does not change, neither have I commanded any other day, neither has the thought entered My mind! OBEY GOD! SERVE ME, NOT MAMMON!"
11/12/06 From Our Lord and Savior, Jesus The Christ - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Beloved, I do not change! I am the same yesterday, today and all tomorrows to come! Therefore what I have written, let no man change. Rather follow Me as I have said, and not as you would have Me say. Beloved, keep The Commandments of The Father, as He had written them in stone by His own finger; in number, ten. Keep them all, remember them all, and do them all according to how they are written, and not as man has rewritten them, and it shall be credited to you as righteousness. For I have indeed freed you from the curse of The Law, yet I have not freed you from obedience to The Law. Rather I have given you the means, by My own Spirit, to keep The Law.
Oh My beloved, why do you not understand My speech? Why do you not love Me? Why have you lost the desire to follow Me? My love has not changed, yet you have changed, removing your hearts far from Me, walking always in a way that is not good to your own hurt! You have all become lords unto yourselves! Beloved, delight in what The Father has given you! Stop desecrating His Sabbaths! Keep what The Father has commanded you, for The Law stands forever; even as all contained therein stands also!... Behold, even from Sabbath to Sabbath, in the Kingdom, shall the nations come up to Jerusalem and worship Me."
8/19/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Therefore, thus says The Lord: I call to My beloved, to all who have ears to hear, I call you to depart from this world in thought and in action; to reveal your love for Me by all you say and do, to put your love on open display; to rest in Me on the Sabbath day, and receive of My blessing; to honor My Holy Days, and remember, that you may also understand; to hold fast to the Holy Covenant and no longer depart from the word of My commandment.Yet among you, I see some who turn not their foot away from doing their own pleasure on the Sabbath Day, the day which I made for you and called you to remember and keep holy...Beloved ones, did I not sanctify the seventh day from the beginning?! Did I not write The Commandment by My own finger, and make it a perpetual covenant?! Yet the churches forsake My Commandments, and do not honor My statutes. Even among this little flock are some whose faith has begun to wane, who depart from My ways and continue to work on the Sabbath, who do their own will on My Holy Days... Thus those who forsake My Sabbaths have revealed who is first; let them depart. Even with many tears I command them to depart My table, says The Lord, that they may go their own way."
8/20/07 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear - Regarding Timothy’s wife’s dream of great sorrow, where Jesus entered the house holding a large stone, while people were profaning the Sabbath
"And of these who do continually profane My Sabbaths, even they too shall come to see, for they shall be shown, for the Sabbath is the Seventh Day. And the rest I shall bring is of the same, even as one day in The Lord. And this, My children, is why you shall remember the Sabbath and keep it holy, even as I am holy. For your Father in Heaven had blessed and sanctified the seventh day, as the day of rest, from the beginning. Therefore, you shall bless it also, and rest in The Lord on the seventh day of each week, to sanctify it, even as The Lord your God shall bless you, sanctifying all who keep the Sabbath according to His Commandment... Of which I am coming quickly to fulfill and manifest, so you may also enter into His rest."
"Behold the new day, the seventh,
Even one thousand years!...A holy convocation...
The Image Toppled and Destroyed, All Is Uprooted, the Sanctuary Cleansed...
Behold the Seventh Day, One Thousand Years, a Holy Convocation, The Sabbath
1/29/05 From God The Father - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"For His kingdom is a garden without thorns,
A city free from every contemptuous way,
A place of rest set apart from the many schemes of the evil one...
A Sabbath... A Kingdom which shall never pass away,Where no one lies down in death,Nor shall any fall asleep or be made to slumber...
Behold, My people shall never be covered over again,
For all these things have passed away! Says The Lord."
And The Lion Shall Lie Down
with the Lambs
4/18/05 From God The Father - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord: As it is written, a day in The Lord is as a thousand years; and behold, the seventh day is nearly upon you.
Therefore, Timothy, write My words and have understanding: The Lord God created the heavens and the earth, and all therein, in six days, and rested on the seventh; and behold, the day of rest is at the door. For the sixth day is ending, yet not as the sun sets upon the horizon, but as a woman suffering to bring forth. For she is in great travail, her contractions are close together and shall soon be constant, and she shall have no rest until the birth is accomplished...
The bride’s Husband shall embrace her and hold her close,
He shall heal her and wipe away all her tears,
And she shall be comforted as He holds the babe in His right hand...
The pain of birth all but forgotten, of which she shall never suffer again,
For the old order of things has passed away...
Behold The New Day!...
A day of rest from all hurts,
A day set apart from every kind of evil...
A day in The Lord lasting one thousand years...
Amen, and amen.
The Seventh Day
The Kingdom of God is a garden...Set apart from the many schemes of the adversary,A place of rest, free of briars and thorns...A Sabbath...A holy place which shall never pass away;Where no one lies down in death,Nor shall any be made to slumber...My people shall never be covered over again,For the old order of things has passed away!Behold, all things have become new!...Says The Lord.
4/19/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Here is wisdom: Six days, creation; the seventh, rest, holy. Six days since Adam; the seventh, rest, holy. Six days in the week; the seventh, rest, holy. Six days shall you feast; the seventh, rest, holy... Drink and eat in remembrance of Me! Be filled with the glory of The Lord, for I am risen!"
10/20/07 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Beloved little ones, you are Mine and I have given you to My Son; for all I have is His, and all He has is Mine. And so that which I have created must now return to Me. For I call you back, and I will receive you to Myself once again. Therefore, come to Me; return to My love, abide in My mercy, and know Me... Live in My Son! And I, even I, shall be your God and you shall be My people... Six days ending, the seventh at the door, wherein you shall find rest; behold, even I shall rest with you, for one day in The Lord.
Therefore come now and share in My joy, abide in My love, enter into My rest."
A Day of Thick Clouds and Darkness, Bitter Sorrows...
The Day of Deliverance and Judgment, The Day of The Lord
3/30/06 From The Lord God - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Behold, the new day shall come in, the seventh, even one thousand years! And thus as it is written, so shall it be, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of God and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” Therefore, let every knee bow! Let all the inhabitants of the earth fall down and worship Him, yes He, YahuShua HaMashiach, The King of Glory!... Your Shepherd, your Father, your Savior, The Risen One!... The One who delivered you from the penalty of sin, and is coming quickly to make an end of all wickedness!"
honor Me, and shall surely be blessed. Therefore, this is what I command you: You shall be prepared for the Sabbath by sunset on the sixth day, ceasing from all your works, as I have commanded you. You shall remember and honor the Sabbath; from sunset to sunset, you shall rest and be at peace. For the time is coming when none shall have peace, when no one will be able to work, yet you, Timothy, shall work. In the midst of deep darkness you shall serve, and in you shall I shine bright, for I have set you up as a lampstand for My people. And in the day I send you, you shall become a beacon, bright and shining.
Therefore, Timothy, cherish the Sabbath. Pray and give worship, offer up thanksgiving in My name. Be refreshed and washed in The Word, renewed in the presence of God... My son, speak of Me on the Sabbath, declare My name and My glory! And when others draw near, speak to them also; yea, testify of My Passion on the Sabbath day! Share My Word and My love, and blow this trumpet! For My Kingdom comes!
Yes, even on the Sabbath, and in the Day of The Lord, shall you walk in the office for which you are called. For I am also The Lord of the Sabbath; behold, I am Lord over all the earth! Then shall the New Day come; and if you are willing to receive it, it is the seventh, The Sabbath of The Lord, when the whole world shall rest from its evil-doings. Indeed, many things shall be put to rest in The Lord’s Day, even death and the grave; destruction shall have no place, and evil shall be far removed. For as it is written, “They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of The Lord as the waters cover the sea”... Therefore, pray always that you are counted worthy to enter His rest, to abide in the presence of The Lord forever.
Thus those who remember the Sabbath honor Me,
And those who rest on the Sabbath rest in Me,
As they look to the Day...
For I had set the seventh day apart,
And sanctified it, from the beginning...
Thus it has been a sign between Me and My people,
Even to this day, and so shall it remain forever.
For as I spoke to the children of Israel, saying, “Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am The Lord who sanctifies you”, so also do I speak to you, even to all who are grafted in. For those who obey My Commandments remain in My love, and those who remember My Sabbaths keep My company, for The Holy One of Israel dwells in the midst of them. For I long for My children to be with Me where I am, I am eager to return them to the Garden, that we may once again walk together in the cool of the morning... Our joy fulfilled.
Therefore remember the Sabbath, and I shall remember you. Bless the Sabbath, and I shall bless you. Love one another, even as I have loved you. Put away your works, look not to the cares of this world, and let go of your worries on the Sabbath day. Spare yourselves the weight of all these troubles, put down the burdens of this world, and be set apart for just one day. Let all your thoughts dwell upon your God and Savior, and consider; yea, let your mind be filled with wonder and awe over the works of My hands. For even The Lord your God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, rested on the seventh day.
So then bear your cross six days, and let The Lord carry it on the seventh... Rejoice and be merry, for this is My will for you. Then when evening comes, and the sun dips below the horizon, you may again return to that which you choose to take up, whether it be the plow or the shears. But see that you do not take up your hand in sin, and be wary of those who do. Be separate, and stand apart from those who forsake the Sabbath and push out the hand against My Holy Days. For My Sabbaths are holy, a blessing, a time to reflect on those things I have prepared for those who love Me... Why, O churches of men, do you forsake My Sabbaths and cast away My Holy Days, as though the devil had laid them upon your doorstep?! For My people honor Me and take pleasure in My Sabbaths; they offer up thanksgiving, and in all things give Me glory.
And behold, the Day is coming quickly when The Rightful King shall rule!
And His Kingdom shall be a Sabbath, even one thousand years!
His reign, forever and ever!...
For The Lord has spoken, and so shall it be...
On Earth as in Heaven."
1/24/13 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - A Letter Given to Jayse and Timothy, For a Brother in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"On the Sabbath do those things which are pleasing in My sight, that we may be glad together. Come to Me and receive peace, for in Me shall you find rest, says The Lord YahuShua. My son, give ear to My speech, and let your heart leap for joy in My presence. For I made the Sabbath for man, and not man for the Sabbath. Yet very few understand its true purpose, nor can any comprehend the full scope of its meaning until the day they enter in. Therefore be blessed in the Sabbath, for it is indeed a blessing.
My son, as I rested on the seventh day so shall you rest also, That I may bless you and sanctify you, Even as I had blessed and sanctified the seventh day from the beginning... A day set apart and holy...Even as those in whom I dwell are set apart and holy.
Remember the Sabbath therefore, and consider with eager expectation, see with greater eyes; for a day in The Lord is as a thousand years!... My son, follow Me, walk in My footsteps, and you shall be blessed indeed! For the servant who walks in My ways shall know Me, and the disciple who rests in Me on the Sabbath Day shall have peace. For the Sabbath is more than rest, and the Commandment more than peace. Thus the faith of those who obey The Commandments is revealed, and shall soon come to completion, for union is near!My son, rest is good for the body and for the mind, yet even more blessed are those who rest in The Lord, for theirs is rest for the soul. For peace is in the knowing, that I AM WHO I AM. And upon this foundation shall My servants find rest, even healing which flows like a river. For the truth of who I am heals the broken-hearted and revives the soul. For those who lay their burdens at My feet shall be nourished in My love, and those who trust in Me without reservation shall be satisfied, for I am enough... Behold, I am The Living Bread which came down from Heaven, The Fountain of Living Waters!
Therefore come to Me on the Sabbath Day, and eat! Abide in My presence, and drink!Seek My face, beloved, and be set free!... Let worship fill your hearts, as your lips burst forth with praise! Let thanksgiving fill your mind, as you bow down to pray!Beloved, reveal your love and withhold not!...My son, come and dwell in the joy of The Lord,For I am with you, says The Lord your Redeemer."
2/18/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Lord’s Word Spoken to Jayse and Timothy, For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
This question was asked: I have a question if it’s alright; it’s about preparing food on the Sabbath. Is this allowed? Exodus 35:3 - “You shall kindle no fire throughout your dwellings on the Sabbath day.” We need fire to heat up food. Or is this an ordinance?
Thus says The Lord: That which is needful, do. For the Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. Therefore, prepare your meals as desired, in accordance with the needs of your household. In doing so, you have kindled no fire within your dwelling, nor have you gone out to gather in wood.
Yet that which you are able to do on the sixth day, do in preparation and in anticipation of rest on the seventh. For I desire that My people rest from all their troubles on The Lord’s day, being filled with peace in the knowing that I AM WHO I AM... Received through the Spirit of grace which I shall pour out in the seventh day, even on the seventh of each week, upon all who remember.
Blessed are those who take pleasure in My Sabbaths,
Who delight in doing what is right and good on My holy days...
For they shall be renewed in the presence of The Lord...
Says The Lord Your Righteousness...
He who kindles the flame of the heart,
That His beloved may burn brightly in His name, in love.
Kindle the Flame of Your Hearts on The Sabbath Day
11/26/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - A Letter Given To Jayse, For The Lord’s Little Flock, And For All Those Who Have Ears to HearLet tonight be a night of rest for My people... Not only from physical work, but also from those burdens which weigh heavily upon the hearts and minds of My sheep. And because of all these burdens, which My beloved carry within their heart and mind, and because of those deep within their spirit, My beloved sheep keep themselves from Me; neither have they truly come to Me, that they may know Me as I am... For they have yet to realize, that I am He, who shall open their hearts and give them rest, says The Lord of Peace... Your Righteousness.
Therefore, I now command you...
To lay down every yoke, and every burden...
That you may come to truly rest in Me, On this Sabbath day, says The Lord.
Rest in The Beloved
9/24/08 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Behold, the earth is once again made still, all things restored...
A new day, the seventh, a Sabbath day
In The Lord lasting one thousand years;
Rest, peace, all tears wiped away...
The Kingdom of The Son, which shall endure forever.
Amen, and amen."
Judgment and Harvest
2/15/07 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior - Wisdom Given to Timothy Regarding The Sabbath, For All Those Who Have Ears to HearIf such an one, beloved of The Lord and in whom He dwells, dedicates any other day which The Lord did not command, because he is ignorant of the truth or because of false teaching, then to The Lord that day is indeed dedicated... This is acceptable and well pleasing to The Lord. And to this same one shall it be accounted as righteousness according to their heart, though they remain in error according to the fourth Commandment, having been led astray by others who were also led astray by their forefathers before them. Yet if another, whose knowledge is true according to the fourth Commandment, who has not been led astray by the churches of men, comes forward and says, “I also dedicate this certain day to The Lord”, and it is the correct day, the seventh (Saturday), according to God’s fourth Commandment, proclaiming his own righteousness before men, also judging those he perceives as less worthy because of their error, to this man shall it be accounted as shame, though he has knowledge of the truth and retains no error according to the Commandment. For though he has kept the Sabbath outwardly, also testifying by his mouth, he did not keep it inwardly in his heart, nor to God was it truly dedicated... A mere outward display to gain honor for himself, in an effort to elevate himself above others, having not kept the Sabbath at all. This man shall surely be abased in the Day of Reckoning.
Yet the man who remains humble, with a sincere heart, Shall surely be exalted though he is in error...
And from this place shall he in time come into true knowledge, In keeping the seventh day holy, as it is written...
For he had already kept it in his heart.
So then, because the intent of his heart was to please The Lord, so also shall his faith come into completion in the keeping of the fourth Commandment of The Father, as it is written. For it is far easier to move a man whose heart is in the right place to a new day, than to move a man with a wrong heart to a place that is right, if he feels he already abides there. Yet remember this: All who come into true knowledge, having received the love of the truth, must walk in its ways and no longer in their own, nor in the false doctrines of men in the churches.Thus says The Lord Jesus, YahuShua HaMashiach: Walk uprightly in Me, in My footsteps, abiding in My doctrine, according to the faith and knowledge you have received in the truth. Progress toward perfection, seeking on by trust, not according to the traditions or commandments of men.
Seek and you shall surely find...For all you need is written for your edification in the Scriptures of Truth...And behold, even by these many Letters, Written in the Volumes of Truth, Have I set all these crooked paths straight.
From the Letter:
Treat Every Day as The Sabbath
Why do you depart from the Sabbth at sundown,
And return to the ways of the world, welcoming in again
That which you shut the door to on the Sabbath?...
Rather, treat everyday as the Sabbath
And you will do well, says The Lord.
12/18/09 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - For the Inhabitants of The Earth Who Have Forsaken Their God, and For the Churches of Men, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Teachers of My word, all you modern pharisees, have you not failed in teaching yourselves?... You who preach that a man should not steal, have you not robbed your God and stolen from My children? And you who say, “Do not commit adultery,” have you not committed adultery with the pagans and the heathen, by your traditions and holidays? You who abhor idols, have you not formed for yourselves many, even recreating ME in your own image? And you who boast of your own righteousness, have you not forgotten My Sabbaths and abandoned The Moral Law, even teaching men so?... I tell you the truth, you have dishonored Me, for you profane My Law without ceasing! "
A Great Forsaking
3/29/06 From God The Father - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"Thus says The Lord your God: You shall not desecrate My Sabbaths, nor the seventh day of the week, which I have commanded you to remember!
Thus says The Lord...
As I had spoken it to Moses, so shall it be done...
As I had spoken it before the congregation, so shall it be done...
Yea, with the blowing of the great trumpet,
With lightnings and thunderings, had I spoken it upon Mount Sinai...
In the presence of the tribes of Israel,
And before the holy angels, did I trumpet My Law.
The Lord your God had written it, with His own hand...
Yea, by My own finger was it engravened and given to My people...
Behold I, even I, have written it upon the hearts of the penitent,
By the power of My own Spirit.
For The Son of Man came to redeem you from your sins, from your transgression of that burned into the stone of the Everlasting Covenant, by which man shall live... Of which none have kept... By which they shall surely die.
Lo, a New Covenant have I sent to you, in Christ Jesus, to save you from the penalty of that which you have forsaken. Has then your Christ died, whereby The Law has also died?...Not so!... Shall you crucify your Savior, again and again, putting Him to an open shame?!... NO!... You shall live because of Him, and by that which He upholds and has magnified in Himself!... Being the only One who is without sin, having kept every tittle of The Law.
For it is written, as The Lord Christ had spoken it,
“It is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than for one tittle of The Law to fail”...
For the spirit of The Law is shown in His vesture...
He, being the same One who taught you The Law anew,
By His example and by His every word and deed...
For The Law is fulfilled in Christ, The Messiah...
Indeed, He is the goal at which the Torah (Law) aims.
He is The Lord of The Law, also being The Lord of the Sabbath.
So then, if He is The Lord of the Sabbath, having obeyed every command of The Father, why do you not follow Him? You say you follow Him and honor Me... Verily, I say unto you, you shall all be found liars in the Day of Reckoning. For every word spoken by God, and His Son, stands forever... Without any variableness or shadow of turning."
"Stop desecrating My Sabbaths, cease from your heresies, hold your tongue from your blasphemies!... And repent!... And I may yet have mercy upon you. Saturday is the seventh day and the Shabbat (Sabbath), which I have ordained from the beginning!"
On the Sabbath,
Let no unclean thing come from your mouth;
Let only praise and beauty come forth...
Let My grace be your covering;
Let gentleness and humility be your companion...
And soon you will wear a crown of glory
Atop your head, says The Lord YahuShua.
11/20/09 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"For I have declared the day; a day which has remained unchanged throughout the generations, which you were to remember and keep holy; a blessing and a foretaste of things to come, a sign between Me and you, that you may know I am The Lord who sanctifies you. Yet you refused to be set apart for My glory, having cast your lot with the deceiver and those being deceived, seeking glory for yourselves, pleasers of men. Therefore, I have indeed set you apart... Behold, I have divided you from My flock, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats, leaving you to refinement in the Day of The Lord."
My Hand Is Outstretched, the World Is Given Up...
10/7/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
"They know not which master they serve, yet I tell you they serve satan; and by their rebellion have they declared their allegiance! For they have hated Me and My Sabbaths! And of My Book, they see it only as a lever by which they may move the people to conform to their will, perverting My Word in Scripture!
For the love of money they seek always to expand their churches, increasing their storehouses of wealth and building up their riches, by authority IN MY NAME! Shall I not repay?! Shall I not set all these crooked paths straight?! For the heart of this people is corrupt; they remain lost in their own deceptions! THUS THEY HAVE INDEED PROVOKED ME TO ANGER!"
"Thus says The Lord: Behold, the heart of this people is waxed gross! For they say, “The Lord is our God”, yet they forsake My Sabbaths and take no pleasure in My Commandments, choosing rather to walk in their own way... I AM NOT THEIR GOD! For they desire a god without authority, a god who does not see, lest I look upon them and judge them too harshly!"
