With another Shabbat in our "rearview mirror," I want to make a quick comment about "Shabbat", which is the Fourth Commandment (of the Aseret HaDibrot - Ten Words/Commandments) that YHWH spoke to Israel.
The fourth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is DALET, the Door - and it just so happens that the Shabbat is a "door" into the Kingdom of Elohim (Matthew 16:19, Isaiah 66:2, Ezekiel 44:24, Zechariah 14:16, etc.).
Interestingly, Y’shua, the Word of the Living Elohim, is ALSO the "Door" or the "Gate" (John 10:9-16). NOBODY comes to the Father except through THAT Door! (John 14:6)
Please remember that Shabbat is "eternal" and not for "the Jews only,” but for ALL Believers (see scriptures such as Numbers 15:13-16). All true disciples of Y’shua are able to enter into YHWH’s Shabbat as the “Bride” of Mashiyach (Messiah) from Friday at sunset to Saturday at sunset, according to Revelation 21:9; Hosea 2; Jeremiah 17; Isaiah 56; 58; 62; 66; Ezekiel 46; Psalm 92, etc.
Thank you for this beautiful, much needed reminder. This world does everything in it's power to tug and pull us away from Shabbat knowing that is where the blessings and true relationship with Jehovah begins.ReplyDelete
