Rethinking the Sabbath: Part II

Man Reading the bible
Posted by Eld. Nathaniel B. Bullock on Friday, February 17, 2012

Picking up from last time, I said Yah set the Sabbath aside for holy use, even for when he returns to set up his Kingdom on the earth, and yet we say or think Yahshua changed it. If Yahshua changed the Sabbath, someone please tell me why it is that we find him on so many occasions keeping the Sabbath. Was he confused? Did he forget that he changed it? Or maybe he got his days mixed up. Let it not be said that we were wrong. This is what we will do. Let’s go to the bible and allow the scripture to make this thing clear.

Get your bibles and let us go first to Isaiah 28:9-10. “Whom shall he teach Knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine”? …. “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little”. The bible tells us how it should be studied.

Now look at Matthew 12:1-8 Yahshua is challenged by some Pharisees who saw his disciples pluck corn as they walked through a field on the Sabbath. The law stated no work be done on the Sabbath, and here they are picking corn, which was work. They were not going against the Sabbath but taking care of a need which was their hunger. After first showing the Pharisees that they too took care of like needs, Yahshua declared himself Adonay (Lord) of the Sabbath. Matthew 12:9-13 has Yahshua in the synagogue where he heals a man but he is keeping the Sabbath. Let’s look at Luke 4:30-31 where we see Yahshua in Capernaum where he taught the people on the Sabbath days, (more than one, Sabbath Days).

This means he could have been there a few weeks. Luke 6:6 has him in another Synagogue teaching on the Sabbath. Luke 13:10 “And he was teaching in one of the Synagogues on the Sabbath. Now let’s look at the apostles. There are some who say that the apostles changed it, yet the scriptures say otherwise. Acts 13:14 says they came to Antioch and went to the Synagogue on the Sabbath and sat down, and after the reading of the law and the prophets they were invited to teach. This sounds to me like they were keeping the Sabbath.

How can anyone say that this command was done away with? And how can anyone say that it was changed? “Let every man be a liar and let Yah be true”. Ps. 119:126 says “It is time for thee, Adonay, to work: for they have made void thy law”. How did they make the law void? They (Constantine and the Vatican) substituted Sunday for the Sabbath. Not only that, but they tried to shift the blame on Peter by misinterpreting what Yahshua said in Matthew 16:19 where we read “And I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven”.

Keys: Are a symbol of authority. Here they mean authority and power to do the works of Yahshua and carry on as his representatives. This has nothing to do with changing the laws that were set in place by the Most High. We as a people need to learn how to study the scriptures, praying for understanding. Let’s stop being like the nations around us, which is what got us in the fix were in today. Let’s stop following the doctrine of men and demons and start obeying The Most High. This is the only way we are going to have the curse (Deut.28) lifted from off our heads. Use Isaiah 28:10 and think for yourself.

Binding and Loosing: means more than changing laws or declaring something lawful or unlawful. It means to confirm the truth by power as Yahshua did. Read Matthew 18:15-19, and you will see that he was giving them authority to deal with the church in resolving disputes and guiding the church in spiritual matters. Yahshua never gave Peter nor any other person, Himself included, the power to change laws and times set forth by His father.

Now let’s talk about the Doctrines of Devils and False Teachers. Read Acts 20:29-30, “For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock”. 1 Timothy 4:1 “Now the spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons”. Paul was warning the believers that after he was gone, there would be some who would change the way they worshiped. They would turn away from Yah’s commands and set up their own way of doing things, even having people think that all they need to do to be saved is confess Christ and get dunked in some water. This is only true if there is real repentance. That is admitting the sins of the forefathers (turning their backs on the commands of Yah) and start keeping the commandments, all of them. Yah did not give us the option of picking which of His commands we wanted to keep. If we break one, we are guilty of all. We cannot be saved and be law breakers at the same time.  It just does not work like that.

2 Peter 2:1-2 tells us “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privately shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that brought them, and being upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious Way’s…..”. They will be saying Yahshua rose on Sunday, which is not true, and also that Sunday is the day of rest and worship. This was done in the privacy of the council of Laodicea where they substituted Sunday for the Sabbath, and this was done, may I add, by force. Yahshua said we are to keep the commandments, but they tell us we will not keep them. Will you risk eternal damnation following the doctrines of man, or will you obey the commandments of Yah and be saved? So called Christians all over the world now are keeping Sunday as the day of worship and rest, instead of the Sabbath. And they speak against keeping the Sabbath Commandments which should be kept. Think about Romans 6:16 which says “Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey”. We must stop obeying man and start obeying Yah. Acts 5:29 tells us to obey Yah rather than man. There is going to be some retribution for this and you don’t want to be with those who will pay dearly for turning their backs on Yah’s commandments.
