The Sabbath

Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

This article started partly in relation to someone quoting Isaiah 24 which has nothing to do with the planet being uninhabitable.

Isaiah 24 and More

There are many levels to the meaning of the Sabbath.

Taking a Sabbath, a day of rest, can be very beneficial. Wives cook on Friday.... And take a Sabbath with their family. Some read the Bible, listen to music, fall asleep with a book on their chest, just take a rest. This can be physically important especially for those who live working lives. A Sabbath allows the body to catch up on its cleansing efforts of the flesh and likely the Spirit....

"And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:" Mark 2:27

But the Sabbath is much more. The ritual of the day will not get you into the Kingdom.

First a Hebrew lesson.

Hebrew is very unique in that each letter has a meaning and each root word [3 letters] can be changed by adding another letter. It is a little like Chinese but not superimposed although some letters are actually composed of others. Even the order of the letters adds to the meaning. In Ezekiel the Mark of God in the foreheads was the tav [ t].

"And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof." Ezekiel 9:4

The taw or tav which during some of the history of the language looked similar to a small n. It has several meaning on several levels as all the letters of the Hebrew alef-beit. It means faith, it stands for the Sabbath, as a day, and has a value of 400. If you put the tav in combination with other letters you get different meanings. Alef mem tav or "emet" [tma] means truth. I am the TRUTH.

The taw is also the last letter of the alef beit and alef is the first. If Jesus were to say I am the alef and the taw... the first and the last this could have extensive meaning beyond the Greek.

Alef [ a ] is composed of two letters of Hebrew and looks like a fancy N. It is two yods one above and one below [reversed] divided by a vav [w]. This has to do with man created in the image of God. Mem is the letter for water which also means fountain and water has to do with spirit and or with the flow of something. The Hebrew word Emet is telling you how this connection is fulfilled. This is the meaning of the word TRUTH.

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

On one level truth is about not lying, but on another it is far more meaningful. Most lies are the result of leaving out a part of the truth rather than stating something that is directly incorrect..

Also Hebrew is read from right to left so depending on where you are at the tav comes first.

I wont go into mem here more than to repeat that it has to do with water, flow, life, gift, and Baptism in a spiritual sense.

FAITH marks the spot.

"And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one." 1 John 5:8

This is not pie in the sky good feeling religious mumbo jumbo but a real power that moves in a life. Plutonium doesn't look like much in a small amount but put enough together and in an instant something happen. Pentecost was kind of a spiritual critical mass.

"Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." John 3:5

The point is that faith is the key, it is the Sabbath, it is what brings us to rest. All my life there was a splinter in my brain that kept saying that something wasn't right. Most people think the problem is the splinter, but the splinter is what is left of the truth. The rest is the delusion of the world, the Matrix of our own deception. Let go of the delusion and trust in God and things will start to unfold answers will come and the rest or peace of the LORD allows us to walk on the raging seas of this world without being tossed to and fro.

Faith is the door we must pass through. The cross is an ancient tav according to Roman literature. It was some times also written as an X. In the Sanskrit this was also true, but Sanskrit comes from the Asuras who were the merchants or traffickers of the Indus Valley from whom Abram fled when he went to Ur.

The Canaanites are of the same ilk, for that word also means merchants, traffickers [e.g. commerce]. The tav was a door to Abraham but the Asuras blocked the way of faith with their Sanskrit X just as the traveling merchants of men's souls do today. X marks the spot where you sign. And their unholy priest block the door of your minds with a "cross", delivering you into bondage.

"But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in [yourselves], neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." Matthew 23:13

The Merchants of Men, Canaan

Faith and the tav [ t ] which is its symbol is to be a door, a way. Faith is the rock upon which He shall build the house of the called out, the "oikidomes ekklesia" [oikidomes ekklesia]. It might be interesting to know that some of the New Testament was originally written in a form of Hebrew and there are copies still in existence. At least some of them are still hidden from the public down in the "graves"...? The same is true of an Ark of the Covenant. There is one Ark that has been hidden in the Grave of the ancients. But that is another story.

In Hebrew Truth is emet ...aleph mem tav [tma] , union with God [walk with him], flowing in spirit, faith.

Sabbath in Hebrew is tav beit shinn. ... faith, purpose or household, revelation.

Exodus 20:9 " Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:"

The ways of Babylon were and are to take your rest and then owe thy work, your labor... this is opposed to the Sabbath which is to do the work, do the will of the household and rest therein. You can take every Saturday off and be far from this. You can limit your steps on the Sabbath and never keep it holy. You could count your moons and months and days and never rest in the faith of the Lord or in his way.

"The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute." Proverbs 12:24

A Babylonian is often a workaholic who thinks that by his own will or effort he will succeed according to his own purpose.

"And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that [are] with thee [are] too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me." Judges 7:2

If we are going to be one with God we must have His purpose and we must have it with humility and service. God is not a rebel and we must conform to His character. It is His will and not our own. It is His will done in His way... we must love that way.

"Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done." Luke 22:42

The Sabbath includes the idea of faith, which is the mark of God, when it is real faith we live by and not our own knowledge, strength and proud hand then we may have faith in God. Most men have faith in their government or their 401K or their stuff or their pension... These are all works of our own hands. But who has faith in God?

"And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof." Ezekiel 9:4

That word mark is the tav [faith] with a vav as a "connection to a realm". Upi make your day holy more by working the 6 in faith than you do by merely taking the day off.

Do not make days magical in your mind nor think words, incantations and chants will keep you from the wicked or the wicked from you. Seek the Spirit of God ... seek His realm... His Jerusalem [Double Peace]. Let us dwell in the place where God prevails [Israel].

There are two houses in this world, two kingdoms.

It is not about days or mountains or temples of stone, altars of dirt nor is it about holy names or words and the keeping of special days. It is about the precepts and virtue of the creator who is a Father to us when we are sons and daughters according to His Character, His Name.

It is about the Spirit of God living in you and working and being in the world but of the Spirit of the Father in Heaven. We are to manifest that spirit and in truth, edifying His kingdom, His realm in this world and not create more religions that bind men to days and words, jurisdictions and rituals.

These things should follow men as men follow God. If men follow those things they will divide themselves from each other and from God in that pursuit of pride. Do not worship the ritual and the ceremony and forget the weightier things like love and mercy, law and justice.

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier [matters] of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone." Matthew 23:23

Seek first the kingdom of Heaven which is at hand and the righteousness of God which he teaches us in our hearts and in our minds the the revolution of His presence by His Holy Spirit.

The Sabbath day stands for faith, but it is not faith. Faith is the Sabbath realized. If you just keep the day, but don't live your faith then all you have is a day off and you may be far off from God. Faith is the mark of God, placed in your mind by your conformity to His Spirit, but faith alone does not lead you to the alef, a relationship with God. God comes to you by His grace as you turn around and return to serve His purposes. Faith alone maybe in false gods created by false teachers and that will change you in the image of those man created gods. Faith in the God will change you according to His Character. Faith like love, and charity is not something you have and keep. It is an utility. It is in motion like electricity.

"But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?" James 2:20
"For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." James 2:26

One must take his faith to the next level or step e.g. Mem..[m]. water... The flow of the spirit into the world... The word made flesh in you and therefore in the world.... The manifestation of Christ... The anointing of the Holy Spirit..

In History we have come to the time of the tav mem aleph. Again on another level. This is marked in the Heaven as the age of Aquarius, the water bearer. In the Bible they talk of the latter rain. Even Pentecost was a shadow of things to come.

Many things are coming for us all. What we call good or bad depends on us and our true relationship with God. Those are words easy to say but not always easy to understand their depth.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; in so much that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24

This is done already.

Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Distress in this quote is from sunoche which means to hold together, as in uniting.

Upon earth a union of nations more complete than the Pax Romana.

Seas are people and the people of the world are headed for some rough times and they will need faith to get through and they will need to share their faith with those who do not have as much. In the charity of that sharing more will be provided.

The Sabbath is your day of faith. It is not faith in a day.

Peace be on your house
