Were Made as Memorial of Creation
Did you know YAHUAH, our Creator sanctified the Sabbath, marriage and the world HE had created us before the sin came to destroy it? Did you know YahuSha, the MessiYah is our Passover lamb who sacrificed for us from eternal death according to first Corinthians 5:7 and HE is the Master of the Shabbat according to Matthew12:8? If we answer all these question, did HE made a memorial of all these for us to remember it?
Ark of the Covenant
Since we know that in the beginning He made a perfect will of creation plan and made it sanctification (1Thes 4: 3). Yes, YAHUAH created this true memorial day on the 7th day which HE called it the Shabbat accord to what Genesis 2:1-3 and Exodus 31:13-17 teaches. A time to rest from the 6 day labor just as the Father did during the creation of the world in 6 day. Than HE rest on the 7th day and made this a sanctification memorial day as well. Our heavenly Father made this Sabbatical appointed time of the law for us NOT and do not want us to forget but to remember it forever.
Did you know he even made this Shabbat appointed day a lasting covenant and a sign between YAH and HIS follow believers (Gen 17:9, Ex 31:12-17 & Eze 20:12-20)? He did this so that we know HE is YAHUAH, the almighty Creator of us who sets them apart. But the house of Yisra’ĕl (which also mean the people) had rebelled
against HIM. He knows that we did not walk in by HIS commandments / teaching (Turah/Laws) for so long that made many of us forget. We've rejected HIS right-rulings, which HE also know how people would of end up profaned HIS Sabbaths LAW as well. That is why HE wrote on the table stone the first word “REMEMBER” in the 4th commandments. Why do you think HE have place these two table stones inside the ark?
Before we continue on here, we must first understand what dose the word sanctify mean? Sanctify in Greek word is hagiazo and the original Hebrew root word is קָדַשׁ. Translated this into letter is qadash.
SANCTIFY: 1. Set apart for sacred use made holy and pure, CONSECRATED. 2. Made holy; pure a saint. 3. Sanctioned as with an Oath or vow. 4. To grant moral sanction to. 5. Made useful by holiness and purity. 6. Devout, virtuous, morally complete. 7. CONSECRATED WHOLLY! Completely dedicated with the whole mind / soul (mind. will and emotions).
Sanctification and justification are received by faith, as is any thing from the kingdom of YAHUAH, and NOT by the works, but by FAITH! More than likely, we were taught, by someone (not yet sanctified by faith) that sanctification was done by a "process," and this is because our "un-sanctified" teachers were themselves, still in a process of getting washed from all inbred sin, by "themselves," and not by faith! All the while, the SACRIFICE of YAHUSHA is the cleansing ONE, the sanctifying being of the spirit. We should understand and believe that it WAS only HIS OFFERING that purified who sanctification for us, NOT MAN.
The nation of YAH's people who believe in Him are expect to follow, keep and guard the whole Law. By simply not breaking one command, end up violated the whole Law and made a person guilty (Gal 5:3-4; James 2:10). Since the law (Exodus 20:1-17) was written down on the two table stones so that we won't forget again.
“Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would fear Me and always keep all My commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!” - Deuteronomy 5:29
Later time during the Old Testament day, people were still heavily remind about these whole commandments law according to first Chronicles chapter 16, verses 12-17, because there were people still rebellion against YAH. Even during the Messiah's day on earth according to Matthew 22:37-40, when HE taught people about the two great commandments; LOVE YAH with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind and the second is to love our neighbour as ourselves is hangeth on the whole Law and the Prophets. These whole law are still kept guard forever since the beginning according to Psalm 119:7-11 and 44, this is what YahuSha also expect HIS follow people obey and honor it.
The book of Hebrew chapter 4 very clear point out how the Shabbat day appointed time still stand. How YAHUAH also want us to enter that rest. Look at the world today, the world of man are overwhelming with their way of life and death where they can't seem to enter the rest they need.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” - Matthew 11:28-30
Thus says the YAH: "Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the Sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem; nor carry a burden out of your houses on the Sabbath day, nor do any work, but hallow the Sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers". - Jeremiah 17:21-22
Yahuah wanted us to listen to HIS WORD of HIS grace, which is able to build you up and give to you an inheritance among all that are sanctified, to set aside holy according to Acts 20:32. Overall, YahuSha is the Shabbat rest who give us the sanctify rest.
"If only you would have known what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice,’ you wouldn’t have condemned those who are without blame. For the Son of man is Master, even of the Sabbath." - Matthew 12:7-8
Many people do NOT realized the appointed Shabbat day law still stand forever. Even after the last day when there is a new heavens and earth as Revelation chapter 21 tell us about, people will continue worship YAH on the Shabbat day as explain in Isaiah 66:22-24.
"...it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith your Almighty ONE"
