    Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation and every city or House divided against itself shall not stand:

    Jesus Christ is our rest. Amen

    God reminded us even we are busy to our daily life we must spend and dedicate our time to God and meditate God's words everyday then all the desire of thine heart will be added if we put God first into our life. God will take care of everything for his burden is light and thy yoke is easy. Only thru Jesus we can get Freedom abd Favor we just need to Praise him and trust his Will Amen

    The Sabbath was the 7th day or last day in the week in which God created all things and rested on that day. It started before any Law was given or any commandment was given to Gods people. It was not a Ceremonial or moral Law, but a sanctified day of the Lord from the very beginning of the worlds existence. Taking rest in Jesus or resting in Jesus has nothing to do with the Sabbath day's rest.
  • Felicia
    Yes the Sabbath is part of the 10 com'ds but the problem is that ever since Adam no man has been able to keep God's Law. Jesus is the only perfect man who could keep the Law of God and so when we receive Jesus the law is fulfilled in us. We must take God's promise and believe that Jesus is our rest. We can be in the presence of God at any time anywhere individually or collectively Jesus has made..

    The Sabbath is within the 10 Commandments. Its a package deal. Its not a shadowy thing...does not foretell something is coming / going to happen.Not ceremonial. Written by God's own fingers and given through Moses to the children of Israel. Instituted before sin came to this world b4 Jews. The ordinaces /sacrificial system was ceremonial...given by God and written by Moses. Given after sin came.
