I have personally experienced two incredible Sabbath Secrets I’d like to share with you! The first is the amazing double portion blessing for those who honor the Lord’s Sabbath. In Isaiah 58, we are promised the heritage of Jacob when we obey the Sabbath command. Jacob received the double portion inheritance, which came with the designation of the first born child, even though he was not the first born!
Through the honoring and observance of the Lord’s Sabbath (sunset Friday through sunset Saturday) we also receive the double portion blessing of Jacob’s inheritance. Abundant natural and spiritual blessings that “cause us to ride on the high places of the earth!” Jesus and his disciples honored the Lord’s Sabbath and the Lord tells us we will continue to honor it in the new millennium! When He created the Sabbath He created it as an eternal covenant!
So beginning with this magnificent double portion blessing, here are 14 great reasons, for you to begin to honor the Lord’s Sabbath, which includes another powerful Sabbath Secret! Sabbath Song is a beautiful way to start, so join us!
1- DOUBLE PORTION BLESSINGS!
When Jacob received the blessing of the first born, the double portion inheritance instead of Issac, the Lord made a promise to all of us who keep the Sabbath that He would bless us with that double portion inheritance!
” If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the Lord’s holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in the Lord, and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” -Isaiah58:13-14
2- GOD COMMANDED MAN AT CREATION TO HONOR THE SABBATH, BEFORE THE LAW WAS GIVEN!
When God created man He created the Sabbath! Adam, Eve, all their children, Enoch, Noah all honored the Sabbath, the 7th day of rest.
“And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made.”– Genesis 2:3
3- IN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS THE LORD REMINDED US TO KEEP THE SABBATH!
When Moses received the 10 commandments from the mouth and finger of God, the Lord REMINDED the people to honor the Sabbath but did not institute the Sabbath then.
” Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”– Exodus 20: 8-11
4- THE SABBATH IS AN ETERNAL COVENANT!
“Therefore the people of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, observing the Sabbath through out their generations as a covenant forever.”– Exodus 31:16
5- WORK DONE ON THE SABBATH IS NOT BLESSED BUT REST IS!!!
Even though they were commanded not to collect additional manna in the wilderness, only what they needed for the day, some dis-obeyed and collected extra only to find it was a waste of time.
“And Moses said to them, “Let no one leave any of it over till morning.” But they did not listen to Moses. Some left part of it till the morning, and it bred worms and stank.”– Exodus 16: 19-20
6- JESUS KEPT THE SABBATH!
“Then Jesus came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. As was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath.”– Luke 4:16
7- THE DISCIPLES KEPT THE SABBATH!
“As was his custom, Paul went into the synagogue and on three Sabbaths he reasoned with them from the scriptures explaining and proving that the Christ had to suffer and rise from the dead.“- Acts 17:2
8- GOD MADE THE SABBATH FOR US FOR OUR JOY AND BLESSING!
Jesus emphasized in the gospels, the Sabbath was created for us!
” The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.”– Mark 2:27 “…then you will find your joy in the Lord and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land”– Isaiah 58:14
9- AN ANTI-CHRIST SPIRIT SEEKS TO CHANGE THE TIMES AND SEASONS APPOINTED BY GOD!
” He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times and half a time.”– Daniel 7:25
10-THE SABBATH IS INTENDED TO BE A BLESSING FOR THE CREATION, THE POOR, THE FOREIGNERS, EMPLOYEES AND ANIMALS!
“Six days you shall do your work but on the 7th day you shall rest that your ox and your donkey may have rest and the son of your servant woman and the foreigner may all be refreshed. For six years you shall sow your land and gather its yield, but the 7th year you shall let it rest and lie fallow-that the poor of your people may eat and what they leave the best of the field may eat- likewise with your vineyard and your olive orchard. The land shall rest.” – Exodus 23:10
11- THE SABBATH WAS SO IMPORTANT TO THE LORD, HE COMMANDED DEATH UNDER THE LAW TO THOSE WHO BROKE IT!
“Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, Holy to the Lord. Who ever does any work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death.”– Exodus 31:15
12- WE RECEIVE AN INCREASE OF BLESSING AND PROSPERITY ON EVERYTHING WE DO IF WE OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS!
” You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the field. Your offspring will be blessed and the produce of your ground and the offspring of your livestock,m the increase of your herd and the flocks of your sheep. Your basket and your kneading bowl will be blessed. You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The Lord will cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. The Lord will command the blessing on you in your barns and in all that you set your hand to do, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He swore to you, if you will keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways. All people of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord and they shall be afraid of you. The Lord will make you overflow in prosperity, in the offspring of your body, in the offspring of your livestock and in the produce of your ground, in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. The Lord will open up to you His good treasure the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand. You will lend to many nations but you will not borrow. The Lord will make you the head and not the tail, you will only be above and you will not be beneath, if you listen to the commandments of the Lord your God…” – Deuteronomy 28: 3-13
13- THE SABBATH WILL BE CELEBRATED IN THE NEW HEAVENS AND NEW EARTH!
“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain. And 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 the Lord.”- Isaiah 66: 22-23
14- AN AUDIENCE WITH THE KING, MY PERSONAL TESTIMONY!
What makes something holy, sacred, hallowed? Divine Visitation! When God visited Moses in the burning bush He told him, “…remove your sandals from off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” Exodus 3: 5
The Lord spoke those same words to Joshua when the Captain of the Lord of Hosts appeared before him. ( Joshua 5: 13- 15). There is NOTHING that compares to DIVINE VISITATION and in my experience the Lord himself has marked the Sabbath and made it Holy through His divine visitation! It is your appointment with the King and He is waiting to meet you on His Holy Sabbath!
Don’t miss this sacred opportunity.
Join us at Sabbath Song for a profound presence of the Lord, release of the miraculous and wondrous visitation of His Holy Spirit.
Begin celebrating the Sabbath in your personal life today and start inheriting the double portion of Jacob and our precious Lord Jesus himself, the first born of many brethren!
