All About The Sabbath Day (Shabbat)

  1. 1. All About The Sabbath Day (Shabbat)
  2. 2. From the creation account in the first two chapters of Genesis, to the Ten Commandments given to the children of Israel through Moses, to the living examples set for us by Yeshua and His disciples and Rav Shaul (the Apostle Paul), we find instructions and clarity in God's word about His Holy Day, Shabbat, the seventh day of rest called the Sabbath day.
  3. 3. What day is the seventh day? •Saturday? •Sunday?
  4. 4. The seventh day on the Gregorian Calendar is Saturday. Sunday is the first day of the week and cannot be the seventh day. The biblical Sabbath day then coincides with Saturday on the calendar. We find in the New Testament that both Yeshua, his disciples and Paul kept the seventh day Sabbath rest (called Shabbat in Hebrew) and were in the synagogues on Shabbat. (Luke 4:16, Acts 18:3,4,11, Acts 17:1,2)
  5. 5. Who changed Shabbat from Saturday to Sunday?
  6. 6. This change was made by the Roman Catholic Church. "The Catholic Church says that by its divine power it abolishes the Sabbath day and commands we 'keep holy the first day of the week'. And lo! The entire civilized world bows down in reverent obedience to the command of the Holy Catholic Church,”wrote Father Thomas Enrich, in the Roman Catholic journal The American Sentinel.
  7. 7. When does the REAL Sabbath Day begin and end?
  8. 8. In the modern day culture we live in, we are taught that a new day begins and ends at midnight. This belief is contrary to what we find in Scripture and is not how a Biblical day is measured. It would have been impossible in Biblical times to know when midnight comes without mechanical clocks.
  9. 9. Yahweh our God created days and nights and He shows us how He regards the starting and ending of a day in Genesis Chapter 1. Sunset in the evening marks the time when a day has ended and a new day begins. "And there was evening and there was morning, day one"... or some versions might read "the first day".
  10. 10. We see that "day one" in the first day of creation had two parts to it: A time period of no light - from sunset to dawn A time period of light -from daylight to sunset Therefore sunset was the start of the night portion of the first day and sunrise was the start of the daylight portion of the first day.
  11. 11. In Bible Study we must remember that a day starts in the evening and ends at sunset the next evening. Therefore Shabbat, is and always has been from sunset in the evening of our Fridays to sunset of Saturday evening.
  12. 12. Top 3 Reasons WHY To Keep Shabbat
  13. 13. Reason #1 Honoring any other day as the Sabbath is a direct violation of one of the Ten Commandments. Yeshua said, "But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." (Matthew 15:9)
  14. 14. Reason #2 2) Observing Shabbat and all the appointed times (Feasts of Yahweh) equips us to understand prophetic timing of both the First Coming and the Second Coming of Yeshua our Messiah.
  15. 15. Reason #3 3) It is the sign of the covenant between Yahweh and His people to set them apart as His own, even throughout the Book of Revelation.
  16. 16. Where Is Shabbat mentioned in the Old and New Testament?
