Being Aware of the Time and Preparing Ourselves


But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. Mark 13:32-33

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3

It’s very easy to get caught up in our every day lives and be distracted by all the different things that are happening in the world. But our Lord and savior Jesus Christ told us to watch and take heed. Meaning, we’re watching the things that we’re doing whether or not they’re in line with God’s commandments and repenting from our sins.

With all the different ways to get distracted, many of us fall hook line and sinker for them. Whether it be getting all fired up over the latest political agenda that’s being pushed in the media, to being addicted to our smart phones or being bewitched by the many foolishness that’s on Facebook and other social media outlets.

Many of us let it slip that we are living in the last days and Jesus Christ can return at any minute, catching us unprepared.

Luke 21:34-35  And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

We should endeavor to live a righteous life and stop from doing things like – being a drunkard or a fornicator.

Romans 13:11-14 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

When Jesus Christ came on the earth, his sole mission was to die as a sacrifice for us and to teach us repentance to prepare us for the kingdom of heaven.

Mark 1:14-15 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Unfortunately, a lot of us don’t think about these things until a major disaster strikes, such as a tsunami or the world trade center bombings.

Isaiah 55:6-7
Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

The scriptures tell us that we must seek the Lord while he may be found and repent while there is still opportunity as opposed to waiting for the next catastrophe.

Revelation 1:1, 3 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

New York Abortion Law Change

A new law was recently passed and signed by New York state governor Andrew Cuomo to protect women’s access to abortion. The new law addresses late term abortion and now gives the right to a woman to have an abortion up to nine months. The new law also protects doctors and medical professionals from criminal prosecution as it removes abortion from the state’s criminal code. The law also now allows medical professionals who are not doctors to perform abortion in New York.

This new law is extremely evil and most diabolically wicked.

First, let’s address what the root cause of this evil is.

1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

The love of money is involved in all these evil things that takes place. People are getting kickbacks from special interest groups and money is being provided to politicians to put certain laws into place.

Having an abortion at any stage of pregnancy is murder and the scriptures tell us not to kill.

Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.

Matthew 19:16-18 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder…

Life also starts from inside the womb and the scriptures also show us that.

Luke 1:36, 39-41 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

39And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;

40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

This is the story of Mary the mother of Jesus who went to see Elisabeth the mother of John the Baptist who was pregnant with him at the time, and the baby knew that it was the mother of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ who saluted his mother, so he leaped in her womb because he knew the savior was about to be born.

We know that this is a highly satanic world that we live in because they have devices that can detect a baby inside a woman from a very early stage and yet some people argue that abortion should only be legal up to a certain timeframe.

From the moment when two people have sex, the Lord decides whether or not a child will come forth and what IMMEDIATELY forms, is life. He told the prophet Jeremiah that he had a purpose for him in the earth even before he formed him in his mother’s belly.

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Here’s also an example of the Lord creating a child in a woman’s womb right after sex.

1 Samuel 1:19-20 And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the Lord, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife [meaning they had sex]; and the Lord remembered her [because Hannah prayed to God for a son, so God created a child in her].

20 Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the Lord.

This shows you that the Lord formed the son in her belly when they had sex, so it was a living thing from that time forth.

Man’s laws does not supersede God’s laws, so if you’re thinking about having an abortion now that the state of New York has made it easier, don’t do it.

It is the sin of murder that you’ll be committing and no murderer will enter into heaven.

Revelation 22:14-15 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Also, abortion is higher amongst blacks and Latinos, so for further edification we encourage you to watch the following video below.

Charm City Documentary Trailer Profiles Epidemic of Violence in Inner City Baltimore

Many people try to resolve crime in our communities the wrong way. Most people look to men for the solution. Some establish after school programs, basketball camps, or gun buyback programs all of which have failed to stop the rampant violence in our community. The only way to stop the violence is for us to read the Bible, follow the instructions of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, do the commandments that are written therein, and teach others to do likewise.

Ezekiel 7:23 “Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence.”

Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.”

Matthew 5:21-22 “Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment:”

Andries-Tatane-math-teacher-newsppr-pub’r-murdered-by-police-batons-rubber-bullets-protesting-for-jobs-housing-041311The earth was filled with violence then as it is now but the Bible tells us that peace comes to those who are doing the laws of God. The understanding of Christ helps guide us so that we don’t resort to acts like murder, brawling, mugging and other violent acts.

Proverbs 3:1-2 “My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: 2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.”



Many of our young men and women don’t live to see a long life because of the path they choose. Some choose to join gangs, sell drugs, and turn to prostitution or to stealing. The only way for us to remedy this problem is through the word of God.

Psalm 119:9 “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.”

I Timothy 1:8-10 “But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; 9 Knowing this,
that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly
and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for
manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers,
for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine”

Astrology & Witchcraft the Religion of Choice Among Millennials

What is Astrology: – astrology is a form of divination which is a sin according to the word of God!

Divination: the practice of attempting to foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge by occult or supernatural means.

Deu 18:10 There shall not be found among you [any one] that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, [or] that useth divination, [or] an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things [are] an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. 13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. 14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so [to do].


The scriptures warn us that as the servants of Christ, we were forbidden to follow after the customs and beliefs of the nations surrounding us. This was the cause of our destruction as a nation in the past and our continual suffering till this very day. The Heavenly Father gives further warning through the prophet Isaiah that if we refuse to hearken to his commandments that he would abandon us in our time of need, leaving us at the mercy of the very same sorcerers and astrologers who cannot benefit us.



ISA 47:12 Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. 13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from [these things] that shall come upon thee.

We counsel those who are currently enthralled by the sins of witchcraft and astrology to follow the example in the book of Acts chapter 19 of thos who repented of their sins and burned their books of “Curious Arts”.

Act 19:19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all [men]: and they counted the price of them, and found [it] fifty thousand [pieces] of silver.

The Love of Money and Coveting

When you look at the world today people loose their minds over the love that they have for money and through desire to have the things that others have (coveting), they commit all kinds of ungodly acts. Many times not even realizing the wickedness that they’re doing in the eyes of God.

God gave us warning from the very beginning not to do this and it’s one of the ten commandments that people are very familiar with.

Exodus 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

You see people killing someone else because of the car they drive, the jewelry they have on or the iphone that they have. These are all examples of coveting and most people are aware that doing these things are wrong.

But let’s talk about the more subtle things that people might not be aware of that they do, which is the act of coveting and having a love of money, which is sinful in the eyes of God.

Let’s take as an example, going to the mechanic shop. It is a well accepted fact that if you go to most of them to get your car checked out, they will tell you things that are not wrong with your car to get it fixed or over charge you for something that’s simple to fix and don’t require a lot of manual labor.

Doing this is wrong in the eyes of God and is an example of having a lust (love) for money. On top of it all, these things usually involves telling a lie(s) which is also another sin in the eyes of God, which the scriptures tells us not to do.

And by the way, lying is almost always associated with coveting.

Colossians 3:9 Lie not one to another…

Ephesians 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

People that are liars will not make it into heaven either.

Revelation 22:14 – 15 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. This is what a lot of people do when they’re coveting, they love to make a lie that will bring them more money.

There’s nothing wrong with having money but when we have a lust for it where it drives us to break God’s commandments, that’s where the problem comes in.

1 Timothy 6:10 – 11 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

This is a scripture that is widely misquoted-the first part. It did not say “money is the root of all evil” like people tend to quote, it says “the love of” and there’s a big difference. When people have a love for money they do any and everything to get it. So this could be, stabbing everybody in the back to climb the corporate ladder-which leads to you earning more money, to having sex with influential people in your organization to reach a certain financial level . Other examples could be, you’re using and abusing someone just to get their money. The preacher that’s telling lies every Sunday just to bring more money into the church for himself. Companies that price gouge-You typically see this when a natural disaster hits an area, the price of basic necessities such as water or gas goes through the roof.

These things are all done because of the “love of money” that a person has. The scriptures tells us that if we’re a follower of God, we are to flee these things.

There are so many examples of coveting and having a love of money that’s in the world that should we attempt to discuss all of them, this article would turn into a novel.

But people should get the general idea, which is to deal in an upright and honest way and seeing if our ways conforms to the scriptures.

Sometimes people do these things without even realizing that they’re being wicked in the eyes of God and that’s where God’s mercy comes in where he tells us that once we realize that we’re sinning, we should stop and DO IT NO MORE and not saying things like “the blood of Jesus got me covered.” It actually doesn’t.

Acts 17:30-31 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

When we’re satisfied with having just enough to sustain our lives, it’s to our benefit.

Proverbs 30:8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:

Kids Cross-Dressing in School

It’s becoming quite common place now where children are going to school and are being engaged in activities that lets them cross-dress. Activities such as different plays or even “Cross-Dressing day” for kids that some schools promote. There was even a recent Yahoo article where the mother of a boy who took part in wearing a dress got upset at the teacher and decided to confront the teacher about it.

The bible instructs us that a male should not wear female clothes and a female should not wear male clothes.

Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.

Pants, shorts belongs to males and dresses, skirts, etc belongs to females. For years this has been the case but nowadays with the highly Satanic influence that’s in the world it has become more widely acceptable for cross-dressing.

As a parent or custodian who is a follower of God and his laws you have to make sure that you’re being diligent with your children and the activities that’s going on in their school and make sure that they do not partake in any form of cross-dressing, even if it’s for a play.

cross-dressing boy

Teach your children that doing these things are abominable in the eyes of God and to report these things to you before they partake in them.

Deuteronomy 6:5-7 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

These are not old commandments that Christ came and did away with and there is no such thing as “women or girl pants”-this is what you would call madness!

Matthew 5:17-19 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. [He came and fulfilled the things that were written about him such as, him dying on the cross and doing all the different miracles]

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

The whole thing of cross-dressing, transgender and the tolerance of it is getting crazier by the day and we encourage you to watch the following video for further edification.

Sexual Sins and Immorality

The world that we live in today is so far removed from how God intended us to live, that most people cannot even see that their actions are very despicable in the eyes of God.

When you explain to most people that God made Adam and Eve at the beginning of the world to be one and that any kind of sexual activity should only take place between a married couple, they’re puzzled or dismiss it as being old and primitive.

However, Jesus Christ came and reiterated the same thing in the New Testament.

Mark 10:6-7 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

Hebrews 13:4  Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

These two scriptures are showing us that a man and a woman should only have one partner and any kind of sexual act should only be done between the two of them.

But what do you see today?

You see things like, open marriage, kids as early as middle school performing sexual acts on one another, people having sex first then deciding later if they wanna be with the person, men randomly masturbating in front of women, group sex clubs and the list could go on and on.

These are very lewd acts and the Lord calls people that do these things, fornicators, adulterers and whoremongers and unless they repent, he will judge them. Judge them in the form of them getting a sexually transmitted disease, death or severe calamities. And the ultimate judgment, being cast into the lake of fire when Christ returns.

He wants us to repent from these lifestyles so that these things doesn’t happen to us.

Ezekiel 18:30 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.

The world that we live in now is very much similar to the world that the apostles of the bible lived in, except it has gotten more wickeder and debase,

and the letters that they wrote to the churches back then was telling them to avoid all the sexual immorality that were being taken place all around them.

1 Thessalonians 4:3-4 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:

4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel [our bodies] in sanctification and honour;

1 Peter 4:3,7  For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness [lewdness], lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

Despite the fact that it seems as if the whole world has given into this sexual deviant spirit, God does not look at numbers when he’s getting ready to destroy a place for all the wicked acts that they’re doing.

Remember the flood in Noah’s time?

Only eight people were saved and the earth was populated. Also Sodom and Gomorrah, they were doing a lot of the same sexual deviant things that you see today and the whole entire cities got destroyed and the aforementioned scriptures in 1 Peter 4:7 tells us that the end of all things is at hand.

It is our responsibility to live holy in the eyes of God and to teach our children to do the same.

Leviticus 20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Lying and Bearing False Witness

Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

It is one of the 10 commandments that we see all the time. It’s on plaques in public buildings all around the nation.

Yet in our society this is happening all the time with very dire consequences.

There are a lot of innocent people in jail because of this. Some people have gotten put to death because of this and a lot of people have gotten their life totally ruined because of this.

What brought about this topic is all the recent sexual allegations that have been coming out. Some of which have been proven to be true while others were just straight up lies.

When the scriptures says not to bear false witness – it means that you’re falsely saying that you witnessed (or testifying to) something that happened which did not. In other words, you’re lying. And the neighbour that it’s talking about is each other and not necessarily the person that lives next door to you.

Keep in mind that this is one of the six things that the Lord hates.

Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

You have to really put this into perspective-Of all the things that are done in the world, the Lord God pick out six and a false witness that speaks lies is one of them that he hates-that’s saying a lot.

So when we go and tell lies on each other, especially with what’s been happening a lot recently-rape allegations and sexual misconduct. It is not a light thing to do in the eyes of the Lord.

Think about the consequences of your action. In the case of rape, think about some of the true victims of this horrendous act and them coming forth with it. It makes it difficult for the true victims to come forward and to present their stories.

Rape is a serious thing and should not be taken lightly. So to falsely accuse someone of doing that carries a lot of weight and turmoil.

The scriptures also lets us know that liars will not make it into heaven.

Revelation 22:14-15 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life [tree of life means eternal life], and may enter in through the gates into the city [the city is referring to the kingdom of heaven].

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Proverbs 19:9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.

People don’t stop to think how their actions are seriously affecting other people either, when they lie and bear false witness. There are people sitting on death row right now because of lies and false witness[es]. People spending years in prison-having their livelyhood taken away, because of lies and people bearing false witness.

It’s things like these that Jesus Christ came preaching and teaching us to repent from.

Acts 3:19  Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.

To repent in this case means that we no longer lie and bear false witness against people but live an honest life according to the scriptures going forward.

Distractions from what really matters


Distraction: A thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else or extreme agitation of the mind or emotions.

In the world that we live in today, there are many distractions to get caught up in and it’s very easy to get all fired up about any and every issue that’s pushed through the media or gets circulated on social media.

mass destruction

Take for example, the Colin Kaepernick issue with some people now burning Nike sneakers because of the commercial that he did.

nike burning

Or another example is the midterm election that’s coming up, how people are getting fired up over the different political parties and their specific issues.


People get emotionally charged when discussing these and other issues and spend their entire energy and time debating or getting emotionally charged up about them.

Should we be that way?

The answer unequivocally is no!

What should we spend all our time and energy on and getting emotionally charged up about?

Combating the wicked minds that we ALL have [read Genesis 6:5], repenting from our sins, always looking to see how we can serve the Lord better and preparing ourselves for the day of judgement.

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

It’s easy to get caught up in the affairs of this life but Christ warned us not to.

Luke 21:34-36 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Let’s look at the definition of the word distraction again.

A thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else or extreme agitation of the mind or emotions.

Let’s look at some events that took place when Christ was on the earth, as the people that came to Christ in these scenarios fall into the above definition.

Luke 13:1-5 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. [So innocent people were killed by this Roman ruler]

2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?

3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?

5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

These are easy distractions to get fired up about and to spend all your focus on the events and you see that Christ did not even go there. He instead focused on what really matters; us repenting from our sins and living more godly.

So today with all the foolishness that’s out there in the world,


like the Colin Kaepernick issue, the really foolish elections that are coming up or any other issues that people get fired up about, do they really matter in the grand scheme of things?

1 John 2:16-17 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

The Sabbath Was Made for Man

"contemplating man in silhouette on beach at sunset, panoramic frame (XL)"


Mark 2:27-28 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: (28) Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

Misunderstood and underappreciated are the words that come to mind after reading Mark 2:27-28 while reflecting upon the beauty of the Sabbath Day. Do people really understand the blessing of the seventh day Sabbath? We labor Monday through Friday for 8 hours a day or more and then sit in traffic. Work, work travel and the work week routine takes a toll on our bodies but the Lord gave us something so we would be refreshed; the Sabbath.

Exodus 23:12 Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.

Exodus 20:8-11 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. (9) Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: (10) But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: (11) For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

When we understand that the purpose of the Sabbath is to rest and be refreshed, then we understand how the other laws that pertain to the Sabbath help us in obtaining that respite. The Sabbath Day affords us the opportunity to rest from working, cooking, buying and selling. If the laws statutes and commandments were not in place, many people would work without ceasing and not take advantage of the rest that comes through keeping the commandments in Christ.

Exodus 35:3 Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.

This commandment shows that we are to rest from cooking on the Sabbath. Prepare your food before the Sabbath and take a break on the Sabbath Day.

Nehemiah 10:31 And if the people of the land bring ware or any victuals on the sabbath day to sell, that we would not buy it of them on the sabbath, or on the holy day…

As commanded, we also take a break from buying and selling on the Sabbath Day so we can relax and take joy in the day. The Sabbath is also a day to ease our minds and focus on the Lord by gathering together and learning the scriptures. Christ taught in the synagogues on the Sabbath Day. We are to continue in learning about Christ every day and certainly on the Sabbath day as it is a commandment through the Heavenly Father even in these last days.

Leviticus 23:2-3 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts. (3) Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.

Luke 4:14-16 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. (15) And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. (16) And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: (25) Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Isaiah 28:12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

The Sabbath is the 7th day of the week. It begins Friday at dark to Saturday at dark. It was created for man so we can rest, relax and be refreshed. Don’t be like our forefathers that rejected the commandments and refused to keep the Sabbath. Learn the scriptures and partake of the delightful day that the Heavenly Father has created for his children!
