Devil has precipitated an unsuspecting church to undertake his days and names of false gods to maintain them from coming to know the true God intimately by studying His covenant names and their meanings (Learn extra about this within the upcoming e-book, Bible Code Damaged! — The Reality concerning the Christian Sabbath, quickly obtainable at Mill Metropolis Press, Minneapolis). God’s covenants and His names are intently associated. The Sabbath opens the door to understanding His covenant names and to intimacy with Him.
Moses is an efficient instance of a person of God with a literal mountaintop expertise of intimacy with God. The circumstances of His calling on the burning bush display a precept that explains why the Sabbath permits us to know God intimately via His names. We are able to learn the story in Exodus 3.
Like many who haven’t but walked on holy floor, Moses was in a fleshly perspective when he noticed the well-known bush. He didn’t understand at first that this miracle was from God (Ex. 3:3).
Then Jesus spoke to him from the bush and informed him to take away his sandals for the reason that space across the bush was holy floor. God’s presence permeated that floor, simply as His presence fills the Sabbath day. The sandals represented strolling the best way of the world. Taking them off meant disposing of the skin world to come back into the presence of a holy God.
The Christian world has not but been blessed to grasp that the Sabbath is holy like that floor wherein God’s presence dwelt. We have now been strolling just like the world and trampling down God’s holy Sabbath (Isa. 58:13).
When Moses took his soiled sandals off his toes, he started to concentrate on God’s presence and holiness and to be in awe of this holy God (Ex. 3:6). One thing great occurred that may also happen after we stop treating the Sabbath as an abnormal day. God is looking us to holy floor, because it had been, to share a holy time with Him so He can reveal Himself to us. As we stand in awe of Him on that holy floor, we’ll open the door to the form of superior revelation Moses obtained.
What was that revelation? It’s the similar described in Exodus 31:13. The Sabbath was to be a perpetual covenant, the primary one revealed to Adam, and an indication between God and the believers that “chances are you’ll know that I’m [the Eternal, the I AM] who sanctifies you [makes you holy].”
God’s phrases to Moses when he took his sneakers off holy floor had been fairly related. He informed Moses: “I AM WHO I AM…” (Ex. 3:14). He revealed many different of His names to Moses, however YHVH or Yahweh or Yehovah was His “memorial-name” that confirmed He was the Everlasting One who dwelt outdoors of time and will do something we required of Him in line with His covenants.
The information of God’s ten covenants and His many names has eluded a church who has damaged His Ten Commandments by profaning the fourth one (James 2:10). The church will solely achieve the intimacy and energy it needs when it begins to acknowledge what God calls holy floor or holy time.
Makkadesh (“the [Eternal] who sanctifies you”) just isn’t the one title God reveals in His Sabbaths. It is just consultant of all His names that join us to a holy God on His holy day. The Sabbath connects us to all God’s covenants and all His names that we will name on to make us extra like Him — the purpose of our existence and the explanation for the Sabbath.
Within the therapeutic e-book we mentioned a number of the redemptive names of God. His covenant names are an unlimited topic on which we’ll solely contact briefly right here. We found many of those names by retaining the Day of Trumpets, an annual Sabbath that we are going to cowl within the subsequent e-book. Whereas these names have larger energy when used with the rod of Jesus launched on that day, we will nonetheless declare these names in claiming our covenant rights in prayer.
Names of Intimacy and Energy
The phrases written in most of the verses of Exodus Three to Exodus 14 reveal names of God that we will use to name on His assist in time of want. The mix of calling on God to recollect His covenants with us and claiming the suitable title of God for our state of affairs is a robust means of invoking God’s assist. These claims should not have close to as a lot energy when disconnected with the Sabbath covenant, the primary covenant with man that opens the facility of all of the others. The names intensify that energy.
We should first perceive that in Genesis God reveals Himself as a Household referred to as Elohim, a Household of Creator Gods into which He calls us (Gen. 1:26-27). That’s the household title and the church title, the church of God. The private names of God, nevertheless, are extra highly effective, intimate and anointed.
The three members of the Triune Godhead have three distinct personalities and are separate Beings. The phrase echad (“one” — Deut. 6:4) denotes unity, not one Being. All three, the Father Agape (Love), Jesus the Phrase who turned the Son and the Holy Spirit are all everlasting and thus all will be referred to as Yehovah or the Everlasting One, the I AM. Utilizing their private names, nevertheless, permits us nice intimacy and anointing.
Our Father calls us all by title, and even has a particular new title ready for every of us (Rev. 2:17). He expects us to name Him by title, which the title “Lord” or “the Lord” doesn’t permit us to do. Whereas we’re to honor Jesus as Adonai or Kurios or as Divine Grasp and Supreme Commander, he desires us to be intimate with Him by calling Him by His title, Jesus. Calling Him by His Hebrew title at occasions opens up all of the conceptual meanings of that title, Yeshua — way more than merely the idea of salvation or Savior.
Whereas we might hear at occasions the Father’s voice or the voice of Jesus in our spirits, our precept instructor is the Holy Spirit. Whereas He’s referred to as Yahweh or the Everlasting, He’s not our Divine Grasp in the best way Jesus is. At present many use the generic title “Lord” to check with all three members of the Trinity. They confuse Yahweh, the Everlasting, with Adonai, each incorrectly translated “LORD” or “Lord” respectively in most translations of the Bible.
In our songs of reward and in our prayers, the three members of the Godhead love to listen to their names. Through the use of their private names, we present our want to be intimate with them. These names have particular significance within the context of the day of intimacy, the Sabbath.
The Names Revealed in Exodus
A loving, intimate God reveals His redemptive love and energy within the Sabbath, which photos Him rescuing us out of our “Egypt” or time of sin (Deut. 5:15). It’s no coincidence due to this fact that He reveals His names, together with His redemptive ones, in Exodus. In Exodus 13 and 14 seven names of God emerge: the Everlasting God my Shalom, my Shabbat or Relaxation, Yeshua, Savior, Salvation, Accomplisher, Defender, Vengeance.
Starting in Exodus 3, extra names are revealed to explain Yehovah, or the Everlasting One: my Holy God (Ex. 3:5); my Creator Father and my Covenant (3:6); my Prosperity and my Adjudication, which implies God will personally defend us in His righteous judgments within the courtroom of heaven (3:7); my Deliverer, Energy and Answerer (3:8); my Reduction (3:9); my Supreme Commander (3:10); my Sustainer, True Signal (3:12); my Fullness, Reply to all my wants, Provider (3:14 paraphrased — “I’m no matter or whoever you want Me to be”); my God of Endlessly, Information (3:15); my God of Inheritance (3:17); my Anointer (3:18, giving us the phrases to say and the facility to say them); my Hand of Correction, Tower (3:20); my Enricher (3:21); my Plunderer of Enemies (3:22).
Exodus Four provides extra: my Perception, my One who comes, my “Empowerer” (4:5); my Chooser, Seer (4:22-23).
Chapter 5 provides the title, my Celebration (5:1), however how can we name Him that if we don’t have a good time with Him at His occasions of celebration?
“I may also redeem you with an outstretched arm and with nice judgments,” God says in Exodus 6:6. We are able to thus name Him “my Redeemer and my Administrator of judgments.” As we’ll see extra powerfully within the sequel, Jesus is our Burden-lifter (6:7). He’s additionally our Rewarder (6:8).
Exodus 7 continues the revelation: my Everlasting God of hosts (7:4); my Revealer of Reality (7:7); my Commander of Serpents (together with snaky Devil) and King of kings (7:9-12); the Everlasting God of the Hebrews (7:16); the Water of Life, Giver of Life, Commander of Dying (7:17).
In chapter 8, we see the God of serving, enhance, restraining and binding (8:1-2); My God of boundaries (setting limits and limiting Devil, 8:22); God of the partitions (8:23).
One other side of God’s character is highlighted in Exodus 9. He’s the God of distinction, wanting His individuals to be the identical (standing out above the others, increased, set aside, honored, majestic, the God of gods and Excessive Priest of clergymen, 9:4); My God of well being and therapeutic, Controller of pestilence and consuming plagues, (9:9; 15:26; Yehovah Rapha, Healer); Controller of climate (9:18); God of punishment (9:19).
God then reveals Himself because the Breaker of delight, stubbornness and selfishness (10:3) and the Controller of the motion of plagues and ailments (10:4-20); God of sunshine and darkness (Definer of fine and evil, 10:21); God of heights and depths (10:21).
Our God is the Everlasting God of restoration, promotion and compensation (Ex. 11:2); God of the firstborn (11:5).
In chapter 12 we see the God of the Passover and the God of redemption (Yehovah Gaal; 12:3); the God of mercy (12:8); God of cleaning and purifying (12:9); God of completeness (12:10); God of holy convocations and feast days (12:11); God of destroying the facility of sin (12:15); God of commencing and ending (12:16); God of everlasting ordinances (12:17); God of issuing forth holiness (12:18-22); God of the circumcision (12:48).
God has declared the Sabbath to be holy, and He units apart different issues as holy. He’s the God of sanctifications (13:2); God of the overlaying shade and the flaming pillar of fireside (13:21).
Extra Names to Declare
The above are only some of the names of God we will declare within the various circumstances and challenges of our lives. The facility these names have when related to the Sabbath covenant is exponential in its scope. After we join the problem we face with the correct covenant and the suitable title of God, claiming the identical in prayer, the outcomes of this mixed declare of covenant guarantees and God’s particular names are highly effective. Our downside melts away like home made peach ice cream within the solar on a smothering, 97-degree South Carolina day.
In communion for launch from trauma, we give different names for Jesus that we will use in several circumstances. We repeat collectively, addressing Jesus with each title, “Jesus, You’re my ……God, Excessive Tower, Savior, Help, Rock, Deliverer, Avenger, Gentle, Path, Love, Bridegroom, Hope, Everlasting Life, Substitute, Peace, Fullness, Delight, Thankfulness, Anointing, Sustainer, Associate, Buddy, Energy, Energy, Authority, Sabbath, Wholeness, Vindication, Helper, Declare, Redeemer, Blessing, Promise, Instructor of abilities, Jealousy, Contender, Jerusalem (King of Peace for all my affairs), Excessive Priest without end, Priestly King.”
Within the e-book on therapeutic, we gave a few of Jesus’ redemptive names, preceded by His title Yehovah, the Everlasting, Self-existent One. After we take aside the person letters and combos of letters in a Hebrew phrase, we add to the conceptual which means of the time period. Within the case of YHVH, we see the phrase havah within the final three letters, actually that which comes from the nail (that secures or establishes) or exists. The primary letter means “hand,” so the Everlasting is the One whose hand introduced all issues into existence.
YHVH additionally suggests “to turn out to be identified.” This reveals a God who frequently reveals Himself. He revealed Himself to Moses when Moses revered the holy floor. He reveals Himself to His individuals once they honor His holy Sabbath.
Whereas many declare to be gods or elohim, and God even calls His little kids elohim on the earth (Psalm 82:6; John 10:34), Yehovah is the triune Godhead that introduced all issues into existence. Because the Creator Household, They do name themselves Elohim, but when Jesus shaped Adam, He referred to as Himself Yehovah. It’s a extra intimate title and it signifies His particular relationship with His individuals. Apparently, no different commandment however the Sabbath commandment identifies the true God, the one who made all issues. In a psalm typically thought of to be a Sabbath psalm and quoted within the Sabbath relaxation dialogue in Hebrews, God refers to Himself as Yehovah Osenu, the Everlasting our Maker (Ps. 95:6).
God’s Names Discover Their Fullest Which means within the Sabbath
Can we start to see how related God’s names are to His Sabbath? None of His names tackle their full which means until we’re retaining the day that identifies the actual Jesus and those that are set aside as holy by Him.
God is the El or one true God above all others who aspire to Godship. The primary letter aleph, actually which means “ox,” with the thought of strongest and first, combines with the second letter lamed, actually “cattle goad” or “rod of authority,” and might imply “management, authority, or tongue.” God is certainly the firstly authority of the universe, the Creator of all issues. Jesus is the One whose tongue speaks the authoritative legislation and Phrase of God. It was Jesus, as we will see, that spoke the Sabbath commandment on Sinai.
Jesus is El Shaddai. In historical occasions for a king to take a metropolis he needed to destroy the door that led into the walled fortress. Shaddai actually means “destroy the door.” Jesus is a King who takes each different kingdom by pressure, destroying each door, together with the door to Devil’s kingdom. If we wish to see Devil below our toes, we should hold the day of the Kingdom, the Sabbath. Shaddai additionally has the which means of “many-breasted one,” a picturesque means of seeing God as each all-sufficient and self-sufficient.
The phrase shem is the phrase “title,” and when used for the title of God, it actually means “destroy chaos.” The phrase shalom, exemplified within the peace of the Sabbath day, actually means “destroy the authority (Devil) that causes chaos.” And Shabbat means “repent or return to the covenant or cross of Jesus (who defeated Devil by His blood).”
Whereas some do not like the thought of retaining the legislation, we should perceive that Jesus is the Regulation or Torah, which within the phrase image in Hebrew means, “what comes out of the person who was nailed to the cross.” That is Jesus. He gave the legislation and He’s the Regulation, which is love.
Jesus is our Sabbath or Relaxation. Shabbat means we relaxation by returning to the covenant, the primary one God made with man. Returning or repenting means selecting God’s Kingdom over Devil’s. Devil has established Sunday as his day, whereas Jesus made it clear that His Sabbath photos and explains the names and methods of the true King and His Kingdom. We can not relaxation in Jesus, our Sabbath, if we don’t relaxation on Kingdom day.
Jesus can also be Yehovah Shalom. We can not destroy the authority that causes chaos in our lives if we select to “relaxation” with Devil on his day. What number of Sunday keepers expertise a real relaxation? Jesus says, “Come unto Me and you can see Shabbat shalom, for I’m Your Shabbat and Your Shalom.”
He’s Yehovah Shammah, the God who’s at all times there for us or current with us. But Jesus says He made the Sabbath holy, so He’s current in a particular means with us on His day. His covenant promise says He won’t ever depart us or forsake us. A covenant works each methods, nevertheless. After we discover out about His Sabbath, He would not need us to forsake the assembling of ourselves along with Him on His day. We should not forsake Him.
Jesus is our Raah or Shepherd, and He makes His sheep lie down in inexperienced pastures with Him on His day of relaxation. Devil desires us to maintain his Sunday so we will be unable to be nonetheless and know that God is God and that He’s Love. We are able to solely know the true Creator after we relaxation on the actual time He did, being nonetheless on His Sabbath, attending to know Him.
Raah is actually the “man of the attention (letter ayin),” the one who watches out for the sheep. An identical idea is present in Yehovah Yireh (Jehovah Jireh). God sees forward and is aware of our each want, already having devised His plan of provision for us. As you will note on this e-book, God’s excellent will of provision for us is unimaginable with out retaining the day of provision, the Sabbath of “mannafold blessings.”
In Jesus’ ministry extra dramatic healings occurred on the Sabbath than at some other time. Therapeutic ministries are discovering inadvertently the Sabbath therapeutic anointing. It’s to be anticipated. In any case, Yeshua Rapha, Jesus our Healer, has poured Himself and His therapeutic energy into His day.
Our Mighty, Jealous Warrior
Jesus is Yehovah Nissi, the Banner we rally round and search refuge in in order that He’ll lead us to victory. The phrase nes (midday samech) has an image which means of “life assist,” but its true which means is an ensign, commonplace of figuring out flag of the warrior that we observe and who protects us. The identical phrase is used for Jesus because the serpent of sin that was lifted up for us and thus later turned our commonplace of righteousness. Since He’s our Sabbath, and the Sabbath was an indication between Jesus and us that He’s our God and we’re His individuals (Ex. 31:13), He’s our Ensign, Our Figuring out Banner of Identification and Victory. We take refuge in Him each Sabbath, being strengthened in Him, the Captain of our Salvation, our Mighty Warrior and Champion (Isa. 19:20; Jer. 20:11).
Jesus is the “Mighty One among Jacob…the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel…” (Gen. 49:24). He’s our “refuge and power, A really current assist in hassle” (Ps. 46:1). If we dwell intimately with Him on His Sabbath, even an atomic bomb on floor zero is not going to contact us.
Jesus is our Protector. He’s the Captain of the “host of the [Eternal]” (Josh. 5:14) and the “[Eternal] OF SABAOTH [or Tseva’ot, Hosts or armies of heaven]” (Rom. 9:29; Isa. 1:9). Whereas technically we’re not the military, we’re officers and commanders of the armies of heaven. After we converse out the Phrase of God, angelic armies are launched (Ps. 103:20). We are able to even name on Jesus Himself to combat for us. We officers meet for instruction from the Supreme Commander and Divine Grasp on His Sabbath. How can we profit from the fullest safety if we don’t dwell in God’s secret place of intimacy (Ps. 91:1) on the Sabbath and get our marching or commanding orders from our Righteous Captain on His day?
It’s unimaginable to totally perceive and be established within the righteousness of God with out retaining the day that Yehovah Tsidkenu inhabits. The Divine Grasp of the Sabbath is Jesus our Righteousness.
Jesus is the “Holy One [Kadosh] of Israel [the believers]” (Ps. 71:22). He expects His saints or holy ones to satisfy with the Holy One, El Elyon (the Most Excessive God), on His holy day. As we will see, Makkadesh (or Mekaddishkhem, the Everlasting our Sanctifier) units us aside to be particularly holy as we hold His signal between Him and His individuals (Ex. 31:13). The one different place the place this title is used refers to God sanctifying us as we hold His statutes (Lev. 20:8). Within the sequel we will see that the annual Sabbaths and the laying down of long run burdens to Jesus on the brand new moons characterize statutes of the fourth commandment (II Chron. 2:4).
One other of God’s names that applies to the Sabbath is Kannah, Jealous. Because the church has unwittingly performed as we speak, Israel had made covenant with Baal as an alternative of “the [Eternal], whose title is Jealous…” (Ex. 34:14). Revered prophets of God have come in opposition to the trendy marriage of the church to Baal. They don’t but, nevertheless, perceive that church as a who has been retaining the feasts of Baal with out realizing it. Halloween is just one instance. The others defined within the sequel might shock you.
Jesus is a devoted Bridegroom who’s jealous over His bride. He desires her to worship solely Him on His day. He would not like being stood up on His weekly date with His beloved. By means of this e-book we imagine He’s starting to woo His bride, weaning her from the day of Baal again to Him in Sabbath intimacy with the Bridegroom (Hos. 2:14-20).
Whereas Baal is known as El-berith, the god of the covenant (Judges 9:46), that could be a title that ought to apply to Jesus. After we hold a day apart from the day He instructions, we’re in ignorance for probably the most half making a covenant with one other god. We’re in all sincerity breaking the very first covenant God made with man and thus sabotaging all of the others. Whereas not going in opposition to our free will, Jesus is jealous over us.
Jesus fights for us. He’s referred to as Ish Milchamah (Man of Struggle; Ex. 15:3) and El Gibbor, the Mighty God, the Victorious or Mighty Warrior (Isa. 9:5-6; 10:21; Zeph. 3:17).
However will Jesus give His all for individuals who don’t see Him as their Safety (Deut. 32:38, Sithrah) and Hiding Place (Sether, Ps. 32:7) in whom they relaxation on the Sabbath? In an ideal chapter to search for names of God, Moses spoke prophetic phrases even for the church as we speak (Deut. 32:36-39). Jesus will certainly have compassion on His individuals when He sees their power is gone attempting to relaxation within the day He didn’t bless. Lastly they are going to search Jesus as their “hiding place.”
Jesus desires us by His aspect, studying from Him on His day. In any case, He’s King of Kings and Excessive Priest. He desires to coach us as kings and clergymen below Him on the day of the Kingdom. As Shepherd of the Sheep, He desires the sheep to point out up when He calls them to assemble. Because the Bishop and Guardian of our souls, He desires to resume our souls on the Sabbath, the day of refreshing. As Daystar and Gentle of the World, He desires to shine the sunshine of His fact on us each Sabbath.
How can Jesus be the Chief Cornerstone of the constructing that’s the church if the church doesn’t current themselves as energetic stones on the Sabbath day to be constructed up spiritually? Because the Firstborn and as our Elder Brother, would He not count on fellowship with His brothers and sisters when He calls them to satisfy with Him? He’s Head of the Physique. He should ask typically, “The place is My physique?”
Restorer of Physique and Soul
He’s the Nice Doctor and the Sabbath is His therapeutic day par excellence. He desires His individuals to come back to Him for therapeutic of soul and physique on His day of therapeutic. He’s our Rock of Protection and Stability within the storms of life, and we’d like the power and assist He provides us to face the tempest of one other week.
As Writer and Finisher of our Religion, He desires to construct up our religion via the Sabbath manna of His Phrase. Because the Lamb of God slain earlier than the muse of the world for us, He desires us to recollect the Sabbath within the redemptive sense: His blood introduced us out of our non secular “Egypt” of sin (Deut. 5:15). As Emmanuel, God with us, He desires to be with us and us with Him on His day.
As our Burden-bearer, He desires us to put on Him at first of every Sabbath our weekly load of cares and issues so we will come and rejoice with Him. His pleasure is our power. That phrase was written within the context of an annual Sabbath celebration (Neh. 8:10). Our Sabbath songs of pleasure and our fellowship with God and our non secular siblings renew our pleasure and power in Jesus for the approaching week.
Let’s Get Private
God’s private names carry nice energy and anointing and produce intimacy. Whereas elder Brother Jesus typically performs the function of Father, our Father Love, Agape, Abba, known as the Father of glory and of lights, Father of the fatherless, Father of mercies and the God of all consolation. He’s the Historical of Days, and His Fatherhood supercedes the fatherly side of Jesus: “Just isn’t He your Father who has purchased (kanah or qanah) you? He has made you and established (kuhn) you (Deut. 32:6).”
The conceptual meanings of kanah as used on this verse are manifold: procure, purchase again; been jealous for you; recovered you from a nugatory holder (demise and Devil); made a plan to your life; given you a future; appointed you a time to exist in a sure place; deliberate for you; gave you authority; precipitated course corrections in your life so you possibly can come to Him; assigned a program for you; enabled you to stroll with Him; hindered your destroyer; given His Son’s life as surety for yours.
This similar Hebrew phrase, additionally the phrase for jealous, is used when Jesus as Melchizedek refers back to the Father as “God Most Excessive, Possessor [Kanah] of heaven and earth” (Gen. 14:19). The conceptual which means on this context is: create a contract for possession; take away from one not certified (Devil); obtain from a nugatory proprietor; redeem for a rightful proprietor; redeem in fact.
Melchizedek was one in all Jesus’ names. It means King of Righteousness. Jesus in that human type was King of town of Salem, peace, wholeness or perfection. Jerusalem was thus prophesied to be town of the proper King of Peace. Abraham added to the title Salem by declaring Mount Moriah to be referred to as Yehovah Yireh, thus the Yeru or Jeru of Jerusalem. Yireh means “see” or “imaginative and prescient.” So town and Jesus Himself are known as our Jerusalem, our imaginative and prescient of peace and perfection. The world will solely know Shabbat shalom when Jesus returns to rule the world in peace from Jerusalem. He’s the King of shalom for all our affairs and our Imaginative and prescient and Hope of Peace for the longer term.
“Your Father who purchased you” can also be “your Father who established you” (Deut. 32:6). The phrase is kuhn and consists of: abide in you; provides you readability of thoughts; continues with you thru all trials; lifts you up; pitches a tent round you; raises His arm to defend you; turns into stirred up over you; causes you to succeed and upholds your righteousness; strengthens you.
Whereas one description within the following verse applies extra particularly to Jesus, reward to all members of the Godhead is obvious: “For the [Eternal] your God is the God of gods and the [Divine Master over all masters], the good, the mighty, and the superior God…” (Deut. 10:17).
The standard Holy Spirit, who impressed the Phrase of God, didn’t give us lots of His private names. He likes to shine the highlight on Jesus and the Father. He nonetheless does give us a couple of of His names: Counselor; Comforter; Baptizer; Advocate; Strengthener; Sanctifier; Paraclete or Encourager; Instructor; Information; Spirit of Reality, of Grace, of Mercy, of God, of Life.
Books could possibly be written concerning the names of God. If you happen to “google” the phrase “names of God,” you’ll uncover a number of the many names of our God.
God’s Names Come Alive within the Sabbath
When Jesus poured Himself into the Sabbath day, He needed to embody all of who He’s — represented by His names. With out the understanding of these names as they relate to the Sabbath, we can not actually know the actual Jesus.
We’re granted larger understanding and energy to make use of God’s names as we hold the Sabbath. His names inevitably tie in with the which means of the Sabbath. The shalom and sanctification we discover within the Sabbath allow us to see Jesus as He actually is (Heb. 12:14). As Hagar defined it and as God recorded it, “You’re a God who sees [El Roi].” She named the properly the place she encountered Jesus as Beer-lahai-roi, properly of the Residing One who sees me. The implication is that God opens our eyes to see Him in His fullness and know His Phrase, which might solely happen fully within the context of assembly with Jesus on His day (Col. 2:3).
As our Sabbath and as Divine Grasp of that day, Jesus has turn out to be a Stumbling Block to many, particularly the believers. The excellent news is: you do not have to stumble anymore.
The encouraging fact is that God just isn’t a harsh, merciless God who loves to seek out us at fault so He can crush us. He’s Love (I John 4:8). And He’s, as I do know properly personally, Eloah Selichot, the God of Forgiveness (Neh. 9:17). He forgives us for being deceived about His day. The Good Shepherd welcomes us into the inexperienced pastures of Sabbath relaxation.
