January 18, 2019 Brethren Letter
God created the Sabbath so that on it we may rest and have personal constructive CONTACT with the One who is creating us to be His spirit-born Sons. For God’s very PRESENCE is among those who keep His Sabbath — those who SUBMIT to Him as their Creator and Ruler. (Ambassador College Bible Correspondence Course – Lesson 28)
After a busy week, it’s wonderful to know that God’s Sabbath is a time to rest and draw even closer to Him in prayer and Bible Study. Just think of it, the time is coming when ALL of humanity will begin to understand the SEVENTH DAY Sabbath and will learn to love and respect GOD’S DAY of rest.
Isaiah 58:13-14 13 “If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, From doing your pleasure on My holy day, And call the Sabbath a delight, The holy day of the LORD honorable, And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, Nor finding your own pleasure, Nor speaking your own words, 14 Then you shall delight yourself in the LORD; And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father. The mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
Brethren, I hope we will all continue to take the Sabbath day to build a stronger bond (through prayer and Bible Study), with God the Father and Jesus the Christ! There’s a REAL FUTURE for us, in doing that! We see in the book of Hebrews…
Hebrews 2:6-10 6 But one testified in a certain place, saying: “What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him? 7 You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, And set him over the works of Your hands.
8 You have put all things in subjection under his feet.” For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is
not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone. 10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
That’s GOD’S VISION, we’re reading about!
Have a wonderful Sabbath everyone!
Your Brother in Christ,
