Shabbat shalom Sisters.
We would like to share our journey of keeping The Sabbath day.
Before that, let us see what “Shabbat shalom means.
This Greeting or departing line (hello or goodbye) “Shabbat shalom – Sabbath peace” is used on or during the few days leading up to Shabbat. Literally “peaceful Sabbath.”, but this greeting means far more than “have a peaceful and restful day.”
What we are really saying is: May you be restored to wholeness on the blessed Sabbath! Praise God for unity the children of Israel with an eternal shalom. Amen.
What we will be sharing in this post.
- Our journey keeping the Sabbath day.
- How God designed this day and what he expected of us.
Our journey keeping the Sabbath day.
Well, it is important to mention that we did not grow up keeping the Sabbath day, the reality is we grew up with the understanding that “The law” is done with.
Today I can see how this wrong understanding deviates the people of God to walk in full fulfillment of his will but Praise to our Father to awaken us to his true word and will.
When my family started keeping the Shabbat, we started to rest on Sundays, Why? Honestly, because we were doing the Christians traditional of “Sunday Church’s, but Praise to our Father for inlight us to understand that Sabbath = Saturday, well this is not so hard to understand but it’s hard to change.
Is hard when the peoples around you are not walking with the same understanding, amen and amen for God strength, we choose to obey God’s Holy day on the right day, I believe this was the first big change in this journey, first, we started to do something new as keep the sabbath and also we kept on the right day, been against what the brothers of the church follow.
Ok, rest means, rest doing everything that we would like to do for our own rest, so, in the beginning, we used the sabbath to go to different places like, beach, eat out, meet friends, and hang out, cook nice meals at home, etc.
But God gave us specific instructions about how and what to do on this day, so after continuing learning how to keep this day as God designed we realize that we were not fulfilling exactly what he wants for us, his people, the children of Israel. ❤️
I hope this message can encourage you in your own journey.
