*KEEP MY SHABBAT AND MY COVENANT*byTovia*
Yeshua's Daily Bread ByTovia
We read in the Brit haChadash 'New (renewed) Testament' that Yeshua turns over the tables and runs everyone away from buying and selling at His Father’s house (Mark 11:15-17). He then quotes from the book of Isaiah something often misunderstood , “Have you not read, My house will be called a house of prayer for ALL NATIONS?” Let’s look deeper into why He refers to this verse and get a better picture what HE MEANT!
The verse is found in Isaiah 56. This chapter is simply described as FOREIGNERS (other nations) asking The Father that now that they KNOW Him in faith should they be separated from His People (Israel)? What is Adonai’s answer? “KEEP MY SHABBAT AND MY COVENANT!”
Why out of all the commandments would He choose to talk about Shabbat in reference to being recognized as one of His people?
ANSWER: Because as people from many nations come to learn of Messiach Yeshua the Shabbat is the one is the most broken! Elohim is teaching that when that Foreigners comes from another NATIONS they are to BECOME part of HIS PEOPLE, by Keeping Shabbat and Holding to Torah! Then in Isaiah 56:7, we read what Yeshua said! Yeshua can be understood as saying these people in the Temple buying and selling are not my people, but rather those (from ANY NATION) that come and keep TORAH (all of it!) in grace!
So what is my point?......Look around on Facebook. I see other brothers and sisters from MANY NATIONS that have come to KNOW Yeshua and His Shabbat and Torah through the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). They do not profane His Word with broken grace concepts. They SHOW HIM THEY LOVE HIM BY WHAT:
EXODUS 20:6, He will bless those that LOVE HIM and KEEP HIS TORAH
John 14:15 LOVE ME and OBEY MY COMMANDMENTS
AMN! SHABBAT SHALOM AND ENJOY THE GRACE IN LOVE AND OBEDIENCE TO YESHUA HAMESSIACH!
