Resting Shabath Behaviour


Now that we have taken the correct steps to enter Yahusha's Bride Co. (through the doorway of repentance and Immersion) it is very important that we enter the race on the pathway of deliverance, which is an ongoing process of overcoming evil until Yahusha returns.

Obviously the first change we make to please Yahusha after our Immersion is to OBEY THE 10 COMMANDMENTS. Some changes can be made immediately and others are a process of growing. In conjunction with the 10 Commandments, we see in Acts 15 that the new immersed believers were told to "abstain from the defilements of idols, and from whoring, and from what is strangled, and from blood".


There are worldly habits from our former lives that need to be stopped immediately and then there are incorrect, immature behaviours that Yahusha will reveal, burn up and iron out over time as we listen and obey.


RESTING ON THE SHABATH

There is NO LITURGY regarding the Shabath - ONLY REST !!!

This the outward sign (just like the rainbow, or circumcision in shadow-times) of the Everlasting Marriage Covenant that we have entered into - and the instruction is simple: STAY WITHIN YOUR GATES & REST - DO NOT DO ANY WORK - DO NOT BUY OR SELL . . . This is the instruction given in Turah, yet you will see many deceived believers doing the exact opposite to this instruction - going out, travelling, assembling, buying food and having a good ol' time - because they've been taught this is acceptable behaviour - BUT IT IS NOT!


REMEMBER OUR ONLY SOURCE OF TRUTH IS HIS WORD - NOT MEN'S TEACHINGS.

The Shabath is to be observed every 7th Day from Sunset Fri - Sunset Sat . . . it is NOT determined by the phases of the moon and it has NOTHING TO DO WITH SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES. Yahuah's people in the wilderness were given the examples of the manna to retrain them into this 7-DAY CYCLE OF BEHAVIOUR once again . . .


COMMON SENSE IS TO BE USED ON THE SHABATH - BIG MESSES AND NEGLECT ARE NOT NECESSARY - YOU CAN STILL MAINTAIN A CERTAIN LEVEL OF TIDINESS & CLEANLINESS (especially if you have young children) - THE POINT OF THE INSTRUCTION IS FOR US TO REST OUR MINDS AND OUR BODIES IN PREPARATION FOR THE WEEK AHEAD. SO READ, PRAY, LISTEN TO MUSIC, WATCH SOME TV, ENGAGE IN SOME UPLIFTING CONVERSATION . . . IF YOU FEEL YAHUSHA TELLING YOU THAT "THIS OR THAT IS NOT TO BE DONE TODAY" THEN STOP IT . . .


THIS DAY WAS GIVEN TO US A DELIGHT, NOT A BURDEN . . .



DO WE SAY - SABBATH, SHABBAT or SHABATH ?

When the 3 Hebrew symbols SHIN-BETH-TAU are pronounced phonetically accurate, Shabath ("shab-ath") is the sound you should hear.


SHIN = is the "SH" sound just like in YahuSHa's Name yod-hay-uau-SHIN-ayin ("SH" not "S")

BETH = is not doubled so there is no need for a double "B"


TAU = is the "TH" sound ( "TH" not "T" )


​This may seem like a MOO-POINT (silly or unimportant) but the BYNV Scriptures (the most accurate, ruach-inspired translation to date) has rendered Shabath this way and generally speaking we see a certain behaviour surrounding those who say "SABBATH" (religious christianized behaviour) and "SHABBAT" (religious jewish-ized behaviour) . . . Yahusha's Bride is striving to be as accurate as she can, not just in speech but behaviour also, not out of fear but because she loves Yahusha and wants to please her Bridegroom . . . do you feel like this ??


THE SEVENTH DAY SHABATH HAS BEEN COINED "THE HEARTBEAT OF CREATION", BECAUSE THIS 7-DAY CYCLE HAS BEEN TICKING AWAY SINCE THE BEGINNING, BEARING WITNESS TO THE EXISTENCE OF A CREATOR YAHUAH THROUGH EVERYTHING WE SEE AROUND US. BY RESTING ON THE SHABATH WE ARE NOT ONLY DEVELOPING OBEDIENT BEHAVIOUR, WE ARE ALSO ACKNOWLEDGING THAT YAHUAH IS THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS (shamayim) AND THE EARTH (erets) AND THAT JUST AS HE RESTED AFTER EVERYTHING HE ACCOMPLISHED IN THAT MAJESTIC WEEK - WE FOLLOW HIS EXAMPLE AND REST TOO BECAUSE WE LOVE HIM SO MUCH . . .


RESTING IS THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE FORM OF WORSHIP ON THIS DAY.
