Remember Shabath.

WE ARE TOLD IN THE NEWER TRANSLATIONS TO DO THE SHABATH WHICH IS THE 4TH COMMANDMENT----------- "REMEMBER THE SHABATH TO KEEP IT QODESH." EXODUS 20:8-11 Also says "remember the yom Shabath,to set it apart. Six yomim you labour, and shall do all your work, but the 7th yom is a Shabath of Yahuah your Alahim. You do not do any work - you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in 6 Yomim Yahuah made the shamayim and the areas, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the 7th yom. Therefore Yahuah blessed the yom Shabath and set it apart." THE WHOLE UNDERSTANDING OF THE SHABATH IS TO REST, CAN YOU IMAGINE A COMMANDMENT FOR US TO DO NOTHING BUT REST, HOW WONDERFUL IS YAHUSHA. There are many studies available on "the Shabath," which are very interesting, but once you understand Yahusha just wants us to rest in our homes without doing any work, no spending or buying, your Shabath day will be so wonderful. Look at this meaning of "REST" especially number 1.

REST: verb 1. cease work or movement in order to relax, sleep, or recover strength. "he needed to rest after the feverish activity" synonyms: relax, take a rest, ease up/off, let up, slow down, pause, have/take a break, unbend, repose, laze, idle, loaf, do nothing, take time off, slack off, unwind, recharge one's batteries, be at leisure, take it easy, sit back, sit down, stand down, lounge, luxuriate, loll, slump, flop, put one's feet up, lie down, go to bed, have/take a nap, nap, catnap, doze, have/take a siesta, drowse, sleep; informalde-stress, take five, have/take a breather, veg out, snooze, snatch forty winks, get some shut-eye; informal kip, have a kip, get some kip; informal chill out, kick back, catch some Zs; literary slumber - "he needed to rest and think" IF WE BREAK THIS COMMAND (DON'T DO IT), THIS THEN IS A SIN AND WE WILL BE DESTROYED TURAH SAYS. DOING THE SHABATH PUTS THE SEAL OF YAHUAH ON OUR FOREHEAD AND SETS US APART. This evening at sunset is the beginning of our Shabath on the start of the 7th day, I am already so excited to go home and loaf and lounge about, have some great food and enjoy the family. Sunset on the 7th day is the end of our Shabath where we resume our normal duties,S habath is a special day where those who do it will be blessed. We have no argument with doing the real worship unto Yahusha which is OBEDIENCE.
