Secrets of the Sabbath, Part One

Men have fought and died over which day is the Sabbath day and how to keep it holy. They died not knowing the spiritual secrets of the sabbath.

Most denominations say it is Sunday. Several claim that it is on Saturday, most notably of which are the Jews. Saturday is the 7th day of the week, after all. But their angst is misdirected; sadly, they are all missing the boat.

Most Christians will tell you that the Sabbath day is important, for God gave the 4th Commandment to men: “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8). Christians endeavor to keep all Ten Commandments the best they can. But they fail, and by their own volition declare that after their conversion to Christ, they still sin, which is breaking the Ten Commandment law (I John 3:4). God, of course, knew that natural man could not keep the law; He made him that way. And yet, spiraling down through the centuries, sincere men and women have tried unsuccessfully to keep the law in their own strength.

The Law Is for Lawbreakers

Nevertheless, despite all their ruminations, there is a curious passage of Scripture that the followers of Christ have not discovered nor understood: “The law is not made for a righteous man” (I Tim. 1:8-9). The Ten Commandment Law was given by God to man, to reveal the sin in his heart, to show man his sin. “The law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners…” It is just like the law against murder in the natural sense; it is for murderers, not you and me. The Sabbath is for sinners–to show them, along with the other nine commandments, of their sins and their need for the Savior.

The Law, the Ten Commandments, is a good thing, if it is used lawfully and properly (v. 8). The way that we use the 4th Commandment lawfully and properly is to know that it was instituted for sinners. The Sabbath commandment is not a hoop that we are to jump through to prove that we are righteous before God. Nor is it a way for us to become righteous in God’s eyes. Believing Him is the only way. Believing His word that says our old sinful nature has died with Christ and that now we have a new heart that beats in concert with the rhythm of the Spirit of truth now residing in us (Romans 6:1-12).

Ironically, every denomination says that they believe every word of God. But do they believe the previous paragraph. But “without faith (belief) it is impossible to please Him.” Us working keep the sabbath law in order to please God is a bondage wrapped in a cloak of well-meaning. And it is work, not rest.

Being Made Free from Sin

Understanding the secrets of the sabbath weaves together three threads: the Ten Commandments which includes the sabbath commandment; sin, and the cross of Christ. One who has died with Christ on the cross, been buried with Him, and have risen with Him by believing in His resurrection—is “freed from sin” (Rom. 6:7). We are resurrected with Him. We believe His promises that by faith His Spirit now lives within us, and our faith in Him is counted for being right with Him.

“Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness” (Romans 4:3). Yahweh imputed, reckoned to Abraham the ability to live in an upright manner, keeping Yahweh’s laws and not sinning, by just believing His word! God accounted righteousness to Abraham because of his belief–before he was righteous. This is how our old nature is put to death on the cross. We must “reckon also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin but alive unto God” (Romans 6: 11). [See pp. 154-159 in my book Yah Is Savior: The Road to Immortality available free with free shipping. See details at the end of this article.]

We have seen what the sabbath commandment is not, and how it is impossible to keep through man’s own strength. In Part Two we will see scripturally just what the sabbath is and how to enter God’s sabbath rest. It is a beautiful secret that will make the chains of worldly wisdom drop to the stone floor of the Sure Foundation.

  1. Reblogged this on ChristianBlessings and commented:

    Those who really want to grow spiritually need this truth.

  2. I have always loved what Jesus stated as Mark recorded it, Man was not made for the Sabbath, but the Sabbath was made for man. The Sabbath is the shadow of the REST (like you stated) that is to come as one of the promises of abiding IN Christ Jesus. That is the ONLY place that true rest can come from and Jesus Himself made that very clear in several Scriptures. I love that you are sharing this as it is sooooo needed in the True Church, the Body of Christ, today!! God bless!

  3. This writing is so needful about what the true sabbath is! The sabbath rest to the people of God is a true gift. I am looking forward to Part 2. Gods grace and love in your walk with Him. ( Mark 2:27,28) And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

    • Thank you for your comment; I agree wholeheartedly. The Son is Lord of the sabbath. Since we are His body, then He sees us as Lord of the sabbath, too. In Him we were before the sabbath.

      • I believe what you say to be so true. You say: “ In Him we were before the sabbath.” With that said I hope I can write my thought so you understand. By being in Him before the sabbath I think this explains why there are times we have knowledge of things which seem so ancient, but the eternal spirit of God which dwells within us causes us to be able to know such things. (John 17:24) Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
        Many Blessings.

      • Thank you so much, Julia. So very true. It is like when He reveals a portion of truth and a lightbulb goes on, and it seems that the new revelation is something old that had been in our hearts but we could not verbalize it. Christ said that when the Spirit of truth comes into our heart, that the Spirit will lead and “guide us into all truth” (John 16:13). If we are not discovering more and more truth (which always purges the falsehoods about God), then the Spirit of truth is not guiding us. There is so much more that the Father wants to share with us. Like John said that the world could not contain all the books reporting on the things Christ has done (John 21:25). I think of His kingdom that shall never be destroyed. And we shall rule and reign with Him. That is His promise to the overcomers. Wayneman

      • YES! You have hit the nail on the head… the world could not contain all the books of what Christ has done! But His spirit of truth reveals and guides us. God Bless You.
