Review of Sabbath

Ok, I am going to review several of my posts here all pertaining to the Sabbath and why we should be concerned if we are not keeping the 7th day Sabbath that Yahweh Elohim established.  He desires that we keep His word.  He desires our worship in the ways in which He has prescribed.  If we guard to do/keep His commands then He in return guards/keeps us.
Deu 6:2 so that you fear יהוה your Elohim, to guard all His laws and His commands which I command you, you and your son and your grandson, all the days of your life, and that your days be prolonged. Deu 6:3 "And you shall hear, O Yisra’ĕl, and shall guard to do, that it might be well with you, and that you increase greatly as יהוה Elohim of your fathers has spoken to you, in a land flowing with milk and honey.
Deu 4:6 "And you shall guard and do them, for this is your wisdom and your understanding before the eyes of the peoples who hear all these laws, and they shall say, ‘Only a wise and understanding people is this great nation!’

Do we fear Elohim enough to be obedient?  Are we being diligent to keep that which He has told us to do?
Fearing Elohim is the beginning of wisdom.
So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. 11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience.”
(Hebrews 4:9-11)

Wow … I thought we could disregard God’s Old Testament Laws, now? I thought all we had to do was “love” God and our neighbors however we think that looks. No … Aaron’s two sons THOUGHT they could worship YHVH another way (wrong)! YHVH is not looking for those who come up with new and “better” ways to worship Him. He is not looking for innovative gimmicks that can “add fun” to church and bring in the multitudes … nope … YHVH is coming for those who obey His commands (by practicing them … He is not looking for perfection- that will come in the new Kingdom). He is looking for hearts bent on doing what He says and commands and it is THOSE that He hears (Proverbs 28:9).
Paul encourages us to search and see if what he says is true according to the Scriptures.
Act 17:11 Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, who received the word with great eagerness, and searched the Scriptures daily, if these words were so.
It is important to remember the Scriptures being compared to what Paul was saying was the OT http://myksheartsathome.blogspot.com/2013/12/be-berean.html
Our we willing to admit we were wrong enough to begin to see the Sabbath in the same way Elhim does?
The only command we are specifically told to remember is this one.  I wonder why?  This is the one and only command we have forgotten.  We put our own spin on it and call it good.
Isa 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

The signet and the shadow.  We are willing to destroy the type that Yahweh established if we choose a different day.  We are willing to put our own seal on our lives rather than His seal.  What does this tell you about our heart condition?  What does this tell you about our fear of Him?

This day was specifically set apart for a certain period of time.
Exo 31:16 ‘And the children of Yisra’ĕl shall guard the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant.
Exo 31:17 ‘Between Me and the children of Yisra’ĕl it is a sign forever. For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’ "
So, who then is Israel?

We will continue from here throughout this week.
