    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalms 32:8 NIVRecently when the Lord was ready to start something new in our life, He started closing out the old. Of course we panicked, tried giving more, praying more, fasting more, serving ...

    Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEBHot, ti...

    Give thanks to Yahweh with the lyre. Sing praises to him with the harp of ten strings.

I Did It My Way

  • And on the seventh day God finished his work that He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work that He had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all His work that He had done in creation. Genesis 2:2 ESV

    After coming home from church, I went straight to work on the new mail server. I kept hearing about not working on the sabbath day on my audio Bible and when I flipped the Bible open, that is where it would land. You would think I could take a hint, but I managed to brush it off week after week. After all, this was God's work and God does not want me to be lazy.

    Today though, the work was like swimming in mud. What should have been a simple job, turned into a horrible ordeal. The machine seemed possessed. At the end of the day, I would have been ahead if I would have just stayed in bed. For a long time we would work on Sunday, but take off Monday or another day. This seemed fine. When I started working seven days a week, He cracked the whip.

    I repented, said I was sorry, and the next day fixed the server in thirty minutes. Since then, I don't work seven days a week anymore and God has really blessed the other six.

    When you feel the Lord speaking to you about something, listen. Don't be hardheaded like me. Can you have it your way? Absolutely. You will be much better off though, to go His way.

    Prayer: Father, please bless the work of my hands and allow me to rest peacefully when I lay down. Help me get my work done in six days so I will not have to work seven, in the name of Jesus.

The passage "I Did It My Way", very good passage. I want to go to the cemetery today to put flowers on the grave for my parents & grandparents for Palm Sunday & for Easter. I will have to do some cleaning around the headstones. Is that considered working on the Sabbath?

Amen Pastor!!! The Lord made the Sabbath for us, not for Himself, He knew that we needed to rest, but also set a day aside to especially worship Him and worship with fellow believers, brothers and sisters in the Lord!!!

May HE use me as He see fit and where He wants me to be, and may His Spirit be my guide, in Jesus name I pray, Amen!

I seldom comment, however I am convicted to challenge you on this message. 

The Fourth Commandment to remember the Sabbath Day concludes the section of the Ten Commandments that specifically helps define a proper relationship with God and how we are to love, worship and relate to Him. It explains why and when we need to take special time to draw closer to our Creator.

The Bible tells us in Daniel that a persecuting power would change God’s laws, which it did – the Seventh Day Sabbath became the first day sabbath without God’s approval. The book of Daniel also refers to this change of God’s law by the antichrist power as reaching to the host of heaven and trampling the heavenly sanctuary under foot. We find the same expression used in Hebrews chapter ten in reference to wilful sin.

Hebrews 10:26-29 “For if we sin WILFULLY after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins, … He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose you, shall he be thought worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and has done despite unto the Spirit of grace?”

This passage warns us that there remains no sacrifice to cover wilful sin and to continue in wilful sin is to trample the Son of God under foot and to treat Christ's work on the cross as an unholy thing despite being under grace. This is a warning we should take very seriously.

The change to the Sabbath day came about over hundreds of years and by the death of millions of Christians. This is another fact that most Christians are unaware of. 

Most people understand that it is morally wrong to lie, steal, murder and to worship idols or take the Lord's name in vain etc, but the reason Satan is so successful in keeping so many from the Sabbath truth is because it is easy for him to convince the multitudes it is not important. Sadly, most do not see the Sabbath as important as on the surface breaking the Sabbath does not appear to be morally wrong. The question is; does God see the Sabbath day as being important? If it is important to God then it has to be important to us. Since God made His Sabbath part of the Ten Commandments, it becomes sin to break the Sabbath as sin is breaking any of the Ten Commandments. Sin is the reason Jesus died on the cross for us and it does not get more serious than that.

Pastor Todd, I remembered reading this verse in referring to the sabbath days when I was reading the comments. I am new here but wondered what you thought about this verse. 

Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
