Beginning at sunset on Friday and ending at sunset on Saturday, Yehovah’s (the LORD’s) SABBATH IS A SIGN FOREVER between Him and His people, Israel’s seed (perversely known as “the children of Israel”)! The Sabbath is a sign between Me and Israel’s seed forever; for in six days Yehovah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.” (Exo 31:17)
While I am not a fan of Jim Staley, Passion for Truth Ministries or any “Christian” ministries for that matter, there are some good things in this video that people need to hear. Ha, there are many thing that I wish Jim didn’t say and and other things that I would say differently; but it is all about learning the truth concerning what Yehovah says through Moses and His other prophets. For the average “Christian” who is just starting to learn Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging ways this is a good starting place.
Jim covers many topics related to the Sabbath including: Does God care about this day? Who was it given to? How long is it to be kept? Was it changed? How is it kept? And much more.
Please keep in mind, that while the Sabbath is A sign, it is not THE sign. His Ezrach men, and those who follow them, are the people who keep this set-apart day, but keeping it DOES NOT make anyone His people. We have much to learn about how a Gentile become one of Yehovah’s called-out people.
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days thou [2nd person, masculine, singular – the Ezrach man] shall labor and do all thy work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yehovah, thy Elohim. In it thou shall do no work: thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy male servant, nor thy female servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger who is within thy gates. For in six days Yehovah made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore Yehovah blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. (Exo 20:8-11)
Speak thou [Moses] also unto Israel’s seed, saying, Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep: for the Sabbath is A sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am Yehovah, therefore it is holy unto you. Every one that defiles it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to Yehovah: whosoever does any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. (Exo 31:13-15)
