Be Still and Rest on Shabath.


BROTHERS & SISTERS !!

WE ARE COMING TO ANOTHER SHABATH WHICH IS ALL ABOUT RESTING OUR BODIES, WHICH MEANS NO ACTIVITIES.


RELIGION HAS TAKEN THE SHABATH AND FILLED IT WITH TRADITIONS.


MIND YOU, SOME OF THESE TRADITIONS ARE VERY PLEASING TO THE FLESH, BUT MAKE A SHAM OF THE REST DAY. ONCE WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE TRUE SHABATH IS A DAY OF REST AND NOT ACTIVITY, THERE IS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF A RELIGIOUS SHABATH.


When we do the true Shabath, we stay in our homes and rest. If there is an emergency we handle it, then go back to our rest. Truly understanding rest, means no work, no lighting of fires, no cooking (breakfast and lunch are designed the day before so that there are no activities). As for trying to stop the world from delivering their mail and their numerous activities on the Shabath, well that is totally ridiculous. It sounds like one of those Christians who desperately try to use anything from Scripture to forcibly witness to unbelievers, using it as a guilt trip.


If you are going to do Shabath, we do it in love, it is our worship and it is done voluntarily. True believers do not force the gospel (Besorah) onto others as Christians do, our behaviour should shine forth His presence and this is what others see and are attracted to. Gentleness, kindness and loving-tenderness takes a bit of time to perfect into our behaviour and can only be manifest through the inward dwelling of the Ruach ha'Qodesh. This is the true witness, not mocking Scripture like an uncouth ignoramous or wild animal. I wish that people would "come out of her" completely and drop the Christian behaviour.


WE NEED THE SENSITIVITY OF OCCASION, THROUGH THE JOY OF OUR OBEDIENCE AND OUR PATIENT WAITING ON MESSIAH TO BRING FORTH HIS HARVEST. IT IS NOT ABOUT US SAVING THE LOST, BUT LEARNING THE STEALTHFUL PATIENCE OF WATCHING THE MASTER ORCHESTRATING HIS DELIVERANCE OF A BEING FROM DEATH TO LIFE.


This is a wonderment and a privilege to behold - imagine the gracelessness of some oaf, thundering into this delicate operation of love and trying to claim Messiah's workmanship, after the fact. It would be like a bull in a china shop, completely unawares of the delicacy of the operations of Yahusha's loving kindness. For sure this is not the type of behaviour we need to accomplish, but is the way of the world and religious.


LEARNING TO REST AND STAY IN OUR HOMES ON SHABATH TEACHES US TO BE STILL AND HEAR THE VOICE OF MESSIAH. ONCE WE LEARN TO REST IN HIM, AND TO TRUST IN HIM, WE ARE ALLOWED TO BE INVOLVED IN THE WONDERMENT OF HIS WORKINGS, BECAUSE AT THIS STAGE WE ARE WANTING TO SEE HIM AND NOT OURSELVES TRYING TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.


Your postman thinks he owns the land where your letterbox is planted and legally has the right to go there and deliver your mail no matter what you think, Ha Ha Ha. Stay indoors, honor Messiah and let the world pass by. If we are not resting we are not being obedient. If we have religious activities (traditions) we haven't grasped what REST really is.


WE ARE ABOUT TO EMBARK UPON ANOTHER SHABATH AND AS WE SAID PREVIOUSLY, SHABATH IS NOT FULL OF TRADITIONS AS THE RELIGIOUS MAKE OUT. IT TAKES ABOUT 5 MINUTES TO TEACH PEOPLE TO STAY HOME AND REST. SHABATH IS DONE IN THE HOME WITH THE FAMILY WHERE WE LOOK AT THE RELATIONSHIP MESSIAH WANTS WITH US.


ENJOY YOUR SHABATH !!!
