God Speaks About The Sabbath

I Do Not Change!

3/29/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Thus says The Lord God: You shall not desecrate the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week, which I have commanded you to remember and keep holy. For as I had spoken it to My servant Moses, so it is and shall be, even to this day. And as I had spoken it before the congregation, so shall it be done. Yea, with the blowing of the great trumpet, with lightnings and thunderings, did I declare My Law; before the tribes of Israel, and in the presence of angels, did I put My power on open display. Behold, by My own finger was it engravened upon tablets of stone, and by the power of My spirit is it established within the hearts of the penitent.

Yet the churches of men forsake The Law, and the peoples of this world seek to tear down My Commandments! Thus they shall surely die! For transgression of The Law is sin, and the penalty of sin is death. Yet a New Covenant I have sent to you in YahuShua The Messiah, to save you from the penalty of that which you have forsaken. Therefore, you shall live because of Him and set your steps aright, according to that which He upholds and has magnified in Himself, He being the only One who is without sin, having kept every tittle of The Law - blameless.
For it is written: It is easier for the heavens and the earth to pass away, than for one tittle of The Law to fail. For the spirit of The Law is shown in The Messiah’s vesture, He being the same One who taught you The Law anew, by His example and by His every word and deed. For The Law is fulfilled in The Messiah; indeed, He is the goal at which the Torah aims. Thus He is The Lord of The Law and of the Sabbath.

So then give answer, O churches of men:

If He is The Lord of the Sabbath,
Having obeyed My every command,
Why do you not follow Him?...

You say you follow Him and honor Me,
Yet most assuredly, I say to you, you shall
All be found liars in the Day of Reckoning!...

Says The Lord."


"Stop desecrating My Sabbaths! The seventh day is the Sabbath, which I had ordained from the beginning! Cease from your heresies, hold your tongue from your blasphemies, turn back from this wicked way you have chosen, AND REPENT, and I may yet have mercy upon you! For I am The Lord, and I DO NOT CHANGE!"

Excerpts from: You Shall Not Desecrate the Sabbath

7/16/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Churches of men, know you not, the seventh day of the week is the day you shall remember and keep holy, and do no works therein except that which is good and upholds the cause of the fatherless, the widow and the needy?!... SUNDAY IS NOT THE SABBATH! SATURDAY YOU SHALL KEEP, FOR I DO NOT CHANGE! Neither have I commanded any other day, neither has the thought entered My mind! Serve Me, not mammon!"

7/16/09 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Therefore, let it be stated and set forth this day in the hearing of the people, whether they will hear or whether they will forbear, for it shall be done and come to pass as I have spoken it, even as I proclaim it now: No man in authority, whether a self-appointed apostle, prophet, teacher, pastor, preacher, minister or priest, as they are called among men, who also forsake The Moral Law in the name of The Messiah, to make Him the author of sin, shall escape the Day of The Lord! For the saints of The Most High are those who keep My Commandments and remember My Sabbaths, and carry The Messiah within them, even unto pure testimony in His name, in word and by deed.[1]
Again, I tell you, no leader amongst the churches of men who forsakes the Sabbath, of which I Myself had sanctified from the beginning,[2] which is and has always been and shall always be the seventh day,[3] shall escape the Day of The Lord!"

And to All Their Self-Appointed Apostles, Prophets and Preachers

10/7/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"They know not which master they serve, yet I tell you, they serve satan, and by their rebellion have they declared their allegiance! For they have hated Me and My Sabbaths! And of My Book, they see it only as a lever by which they may move the people to conform to their will, perverting My Word in Scripture! For the love of money they seek always to expand their churches, increasing their storehouses of wealth and building up their riches, by authority IN MY NAME! Shall I not repay?! Shall I not set all these crooked paths straight?! For the heart of this people is corrupt; they remain lost in their own deceptions! THUS THEY HAVE INDEED PROVOKED ME TO ANGER!"


"Thus says The Lord: Behold, the heart of this people is waxed gross! For they say, “The Lord is our God!” Yet they forsake My Sabbaths and take no pleasure in My Commandments, choosing rather to walk in their own way!... I AM NOT THEIR GOD!
For they desire a god without authority, a god who does not see, lest I look upon them and judge them too harshly."

Excerpts from:

Keep The Commandments

12/11/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Call of Themselves Christian, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Repent, I say! Repent, in spirit and in truth, and now take up your cross and follow Me! Yet if you repent, and then return to those things of which you have repented, endeavoring not to change, has not your repentance become unrepentance? My children, if you come before Me repenting of your transgressions, in where you have not kept The Moral Law of The Father, and then continue in your transgression, forsaking The Law, have you not committed an even greater evil? For you have made Me the author of sin, saying, “We are in Christ. We are free from The Law”... Desecration!
Little children, hear Me: You are free from the curse of The Law, for you are indeed saved by grace and now live because of Me. Behold, even by My own spirit shall you keep The Law. And though you are now free from the curse of The Law, which is death, you are by no means free to break The Law. Have I not said, “You are forgiven; now go and sin no more”? Therefore if you continue to transgress, and seek not to change your ways, you remain in unforgiveness, having lied to The Father in My name. Neither are you born again of The Spirit, for all those who truly repent receive of My spirit, and strive also to walk in My ways... This, beloved, is true repentance.
I walked in perfect obedience with The Father, I kept The Commandments, every one, and by My example were they fulfilled. Therefore, I ask you, if one forsakes The Law, how then shall he fulfill it? And if one forgets the Sabbath, how then shall he remember it, to keep it holy? Or have you forgotten My words, when I said, “Do not think that I came to destroy The Law or the prophets; I did not come to destroy, but to fulfill”? I do not say then that you shall walk perfectly, for I know you are but flesh. Rather you shall sincerely strive to walk in uprightness, a completion of your faith through obedience, having received of the free gift, even this new heart I have given you... And by this shall you be judged, for I search the hearts and minds, and I know if you have been fully converted in your heart, even unto your innermost parts - one who seeks to please The Father by all their doings, one who truly loves Me."


"My children, I shall speak plainly so you may be saved:

Love one another;
Feed the poor in spirit and in body,
Give drink to the thirsty and clothe the naked;
Render aid to the stranger in need,
Visit the widows in their affliction,
Uphold the fatherless, and speak to those in prison;
Help the sick...

Forsake all these holidays of men, which I hate;
Embrace The Holy Days and gain wisdom,
 And remember the Sabbath Day,
Yes, the seventh day, to keep it holy...
Obey all The Commandments of God, for they are holy, just and good. 

Beloved, by My own spirit shall you keep them, thereby revealing that you have truly received."

Excerpts from: Refinement and The Day of The Lord

11/12/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Therefore what I have written, let no man change. Rather follow Me as I have said, and not as you would have Me say. Beloved, keep The Commandments of The Father, as He had written them in stone by His own finger; in number, ten. Keep them all, remember them all, and do them all, according to how they are written and not as man has rewritten them, and it shall be credited to you as righteousness. For I have indeed freed you from the curse of The Law, yet I have not freed you from obedience to The Law. Rather I have given you the means, by My own spirit, to keep The Law... Oh My beloved, why do you not understand My speech? Why do you not love Me?! Why have you lost the desire to follow Me?! My love has not changed, yet you have changed, removing your hearts far from Me, walking always in a way that is not good to your own hurt. You have all become lords unto yourselves! Beloved, delight in what The Father has given you; stop desecrating His Sabbaths! Keep what The Father has commanded you, for The Law stands forever, even as all contained therein stands also. Behold, even from Sabbath to Sabbath, in the Kingdom, shall the nations come up to Jerusalem and worship Me."

Words To Live By

The Word of Truth

"My Word is truth! And that which requires understanding shall be given to those of a contrite heart and a humble spirit. For those who love Me obey My Commandments, and those who remember My Sabbaths honor Me and shall know Wisdom. Therefore consider these things carefully."

Excerpt from: The Word of Truth

Treat Everyday as The Sabbath

Why do you depart from the Sabbath at sundown
And return to the ways of the world,
Welcoming in again that which you shut
The door to on the Sabbath?...

Rather treat everyday as the Sabbath,
And you will do well...

Says The Lord YahuShua.

Treat Everyday as The Sabbath

Sabbath Peace

On the Sabbath,
Let no unclean thing come from your mouth;
Let only praise and beauty come forth...

Let My grace be your covering,
Let gentleness and humility
Be your companion...

And soon you will wear a crown of glory
Atop your head, says The Lord YahuShua.

Sabbath Peace

And What Do I Require?

8/13/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For a Sister in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"And what do I require of a daughter?
What is most pleasing in My sight?...

A daughter who loves Me more than these...

A servant who remembers My Commandments
And delights in doing them...

One who rests in Me on the Sabbath day,
Of which I had sanctified from the beginning...

I am The Lord."

Build Trust in The Beloved

2/24/05 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For Timothy, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

Thus says The Lord to His servant: Timothy, concerning the Sabbath, the seventh day of each week, Saturday is the day you shall remember and keep holy. Yes, you shall keep it holy and rest. You shall do no work on this day, neither shall your wife or children, nor any guest in your house,[4] save that which is needful for your household. You may also do those things which are good and fruitful in My eyes, according to that which I command you. Yet from doing your own pleasure depart and from your own works rest, on the Sabbath day; walk not in your own way, Timothy, but walk with Me in Mine. Rest in Me, and remember. For in this you honor Me and shall surely be blessed.[5]
Therefore, this is what I command you: You shall be prepared for the Sabbath by sunset on the sixth day, ceasing from all your works as I have commanded you. You shall remember and honor the Sabbath;[6] from sunset to sunset, you shall rest and be at peace. For the time is coming when none shall have peace, when no one will be able to work.[7] Yet you, Timothy, shall work. In the midst of deep darkness you shall serve, and in you shall I shine bright, for I have set you up as a lampstand for My people. And in the day I send you, you shall become a beacon.
Therefore, Timothy, cherish the Sabbath. Pray and give worship, offer up thanksgiving in My name. Be refreshed and washed in The Word, renewed in the presence of God. And when others draw near, speak to them also; yea, testify of My Passion on the Sabbath day. Share My Word and My love and blow this Trumpet, for My Kingdom comes. Yes even on the Sabbath, and in the Day of The Lord, shall you walk in the office for which you are called. For I am also The Lord of the Sabbath;[8] behold, I am Lord over all the earth![9] Then shall the New Day come, and if you are able to receive it, it is the seventh, The Sabbath of The Lord, wherein the whole world shall rest from its evil ways.

Indeed, many things shall be put to rest
In The Lord’s Day, even death and the grave;
Destruction shall have no place,
And evil shall be far removed...

For as it is written:
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all
My Holy Mountain, for the earth shall be
Full of the knowledge of The Lord
As the waters cover the sea[10]...

Therefore, beloved ones, pray always
That you are counted worthy[11] to
Enter My rest,[12] that you may abide
In the presence of The Lord, forever.

Thus those who remember the Sabbath honor Me, and those who rest on the Sabbath rest in Me, as they look to the Day. For I had set the seventh day apart, and sanctified it, from the beginning.[13] Thus it has been a sign between Me and My people, even to this day, and so shall it remain forever. For as I spoke to the children of Israel, saying, “Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am The Lord who sanctifies you,”[14] so also do I speak to you, even to all who are grafted in. For those who obey My Commandments remain in My love,[15] and those who remember My Sabbaths keep My company, for The Holy One of Israel dwells in the midst of them. For I long for My children to be with Me where I am, I am eager to return them to the Garden, that we may once again walk together in the cool of the day.[16]
Therefore remember the Sabbath, and I shall remember you. Bless the Sabbath, and I shall bless you. Love one another, as I have loved you. Put away your works, look not to the cares of this world, and let go of your worries on the Sabbath day; spare yourselves the weight of all these troubles for just one day. Let all your thoughts dwell upon your God and Savior, and consider; yea, let your mind be filled with wonder and awe over the works of My hands. For even The Lord your God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, rested on the seventh day.[17]
So then bear your cross six days, and let The Lord carry it on the seventh. Rejoice and be merry, for this is My will for you. Then when evening comes, and the sun dips below the horizon, you may once again return to that which you choose to take up, whether it be the plow or the shears. But see that you do not take up your hand in sin, and be wary of those who do. Be separate, and stand apart from those who forsake the Sabbath and push out the hand against My Holy Days. For My Sabbaths are holy, a blessing, a time to reflect on those things I have prepared for those who love Me.

Why, O churches of men, do you forsake My Sabbaths and cast away My Holy Days, as though the devil had laid them upon your doorstep?! For My people are those who keep My Commandments[18] and take pleasure in My Sabbaths. They abide in My love[19] and have The Testimony, and do not cease from doing those things which are pleasing in My sight.[20]

And behold, the Day is coming quickly
When The Rightful King shall rule...

And His Kingdom shall be a Sabbath,
Even one thousand years;
His reign, forever and ever!...

For The Lord has spoken, and so shall it be:

On Earth as in Heaven.[21]

Remember The Sabbath and Your God,
And He Shall Remember You

1/24/13 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy and Jayse, For a Brother in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

On the Sabbath do those things which are pleasing in My sight, that we may be glad together. Come to Me and receive peace, for in Me shall you find rest, says The Lord YahuShua.

Therefore, My son, give ear to My speech, and let your heart leap with joy in My presence. For I made the Sabbath for man, and not man for the Sabbath. Yet very few understand its true purpose, nor can any comprehend the full scope of its meaning, until the day they enter in... My son, as I rested on the seventh day, so shall you do also. For I had blessed and sanctified the seventh day from the beginning, a day set apart and holy; even as those in whom I dwell are set apart and holy. Remember the Sabbath therefore and consider, see with greater eyes, for a day in The Lord is as a thousand years!
My son, follow Me, walk in My footsteps, and you shall be blessed indeed. For the servant who walks in My ways shall know Me, and the disciple who rests in Me on the Sabbath Day shall have peace. Yet the Sabbath is more than rest, and the Commandment more than peace. For rest is indeed good for the body and for the mind, yet even more blessed are those who rest in The Lord, for theirs is rest for the soul. For peace is in the knowing, I AM WHO I AM, and upon this foundation shall My servants find rest, even healing which flows like a river.

Thus the truth of who I am heals the broken-hearted and revives the soul;
And those who lay their burdens at My feet shall be nourished in My love;
And those who trust in Me without reservation shall be satisfied, for I am enough...

Behold, I am The Living Bread which came
Down from Heaven, The Fountain of Living Waters!...

Therefore, let all those who have ears to hear
Come to Me on the Sabbath Day and eat!
Let them abide in My presence and drink!...

Says The Lord, your Redeemer.

The Sabbath Was Made for Man,
And Not Man for The Sabbath

8/19/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Therefore, thus says The Lord to all those who have ears to hear: Beloved, stand apart from this world in word and by deed. Take your every thought captive that you may be fully set apart. Reveal your love for Me by all you say and do; put your love on open display. Rest in Me on the Sabbath Day and receive My blessing; honor My Holy Days and remember, that you may also understand; hold fast to the Holy Covenant, and no longer depart from the Word of My Commandment.
Yet among you, I see some who do not turn their foot away from doing their own pleasure on the Sabbath, the day which I made for you, the day I commanded you to remember and keep holy. Beloved ones, did I not sanctify the seventh day from the beginning? Did I not write The Commandment by My own finger? Is it not a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am The Lord who sanctifies you? Yet the churches of men forsake My Commandments, and do not honor My Holy Days. Thus those who forsake My Sabbaths have revealed who is first; let them walk through the valley! Says The Lord."

"Therefore, Timothy, Do not your own pleasure on The Holy Days or on the Sabbath. Rather do that which pleases The Lord your God."

2/15/07 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For the United Church of God, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Therefore continue in The Way I have shown you, resting firmly in The Messiah, being an immovable stone for His name. Be turned neither to the right hand nor to the left, but continue straight forward, according to the Scriptures and that which I speak to you this day. For in your doings I am well pleased... For you have kept My Commandments and remembered My Holy Days, and have not departed from My Sabbaths, even the seventh day of each week which I had commanded you to remember and keep holy, even as I had also sanctified the seventh day from the beginning."

Excerpt from: Under God

Here Is Wisdom

2/15/07 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior - Wisdom Given to Timothy Regarding the Sabbath, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

If one who loves The Lord dedicates a certain day to The Lord, yet is ignorant regarding the Fourth Commandment, or has been led astray by false teaching in the churches of men, then to The Lord the day is indeed dedicated. For this is acceptable and well-pleasing to The Lord, because of the intent of his heart; to him it will be accounted as righteousness.   
Yet if another who is not ignorant of the truth, and was not led astray by the churches of men, comes forward and says, “I also dedicate this certain day to The Lord”, and it is the correct day, the seventh (Saturday), according to the Fourth Commandment, but does so as a mere outward display to gain honor for himself, elevating himself above others, judging those he perceives as less worthy because of their error, to him it shall be accounted as shame. For though he kept the Sabbath outwardly, he did not keep it inwardly, nor to The Lord was it truly dedicated, having not kept the Sabbath at all.
Yet the one who remains humble and sincere, though he be in error, will in time come into true knowledge in keeping the Seventh Day holy, as it is written. For he had already kept it in his heart. For it is far easier to move someone whose heart is in the right place to the correct day, than to move someone with a wrong heart to a place that is right, if they feel they already abide there... Yet remember this: All who have been awakened to the Truth must now walk in its ways, and no longer in their own, nor in the false doctrines of men in the churches.

Thus says The Lord YahuShua: Beloved, walk uprightly in Me, in My very footsteps. Abide in My doctrine, according to the faith and knowledge you have received in Me. Progress toward perfection, with all trust. Keep The Commandments, as you testify to The Truth by your example. Yet no more walk in the ways of this world, or in the doctrines and traditions of the churches, for they are corrupt... Obey not the commandments of men.

Beloved, seek and you shall surely find,
For all you need is written for your
Edification in the Scriptures of Truth...

And behold, even by these many Letters,
Which are of the same, have I set
All these crooked paths straight...

Says The Lord.

Remember The Sabbath Day,
To Keep It Holy

4/19/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
(Regarding the Feast of Unleavened Bread)

"So then, My children, even all who gather together in My name, have understanding of the Plan of the Ages. In the sixth day, the leaven of sin entered the Garden; and on the seventh, God rested, and blessed the seventh day and sanctified it. Thus here is wisdom: Six days, creation; the seventh, rest, holy. Six days since Adam; the seventh, rest, holy. Six days in the week; the seventh, rest, holy. Six days shall you feast; the seventh, rest, holy."

Excerpt from: Unleavened

A Day in The Lord

4/18/05 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

Thus says The Lord: As it is written, a day in The Lord is as a thousand years.[22] And behold, the seventh day is upon you. For The Lord God created the heavens and the earth, and all therein, in six days, and rested on the seventh.[23] And behold, My rest is at the door.
For the sixth day is ending, yet not as the sun sets upon the horizon, but as a woman suffering to bring forth. For she is in great travail, her contractions close together, increasing by measure until the birth is accomplished.... Behold, the bride’s Husband shall embrace her and hold her close, and wipe away all her tears. And she shall be comforted as He holds the babe in His right hand; the pain of birth all but forgotten, of which she shall never suffer again, for the old order of things has passed away.[24]

Behold The New Day!...

A day of rest from pain and sorrow, from sin and death,
A day set apart from every kind of evil[25]


The Sabbath...
A day in The Lord lasting one thousand years...
