Is Sunday the Sabbath?
By Michael Rood
Sometimes people who are just coming out of the fog of churchianity ask me where to start from there. They have realized they inherited lies, but aren’t sure how they can find their way and get down to the truth.
This is exactly why I wrote The Chronological Gospels. It is the Word of the Almighty stripped of the centuries of compromise, tradition, and twisted interpretation that we inherited in our churches. It shows the real Messiah, in the proper culture and context and with the correct timeframe. The Chronological Gospels is for the beginner as well as the advanced student of the Word because it can be read as deeply as one’s current understanding.
But that’s not what I really want to talk about. When people ask me where to start, they are often asking about what materials to study and what videos to watch. But there is one place I always recommend they start within their own lives. It’s the Sabbath. The Sabbath is a gift given to us by the Father. It is time set aside each week to be still, to listen, to study the Word, to recover from the hard work of the week, and to refocus for the week to come.
Keeping the Sabbath is a blessing and brings more blessings with it. If you haven’t been keeping the Sabbath, you are in for a treat. There is not one single, exact way to keep the Sabbath. But if you make sure you set aside that seventh day every week from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown in order to connect with the Creator, you will surely notice a positive change in your life. No matter how much work there is to do, there is always time for Shabbat.
So I encourage you to make a commitment today to have at least one particular way you plan to be still with the Almighty this Sabbath…and may you feel His Shalom when you do it.
