Remember to Keep the Sabbath Holy

We are just a few weeks into 2018, and I have jumped into learning the basics of the Lord.  Most of us most certainly do’t murder, steal, lie, or even commit adultery. Yet most, if not all break commandments every week, and/or even day. So sad……………….   It has been in my spirit to learn How does one keep the Sabbath Holy? May I get on the internet, may I cook food, how about may I sell my photography and books? I am still learning, but I no longer go out and attend craft fairs to sell products.  I no longer make items either on the sabbath day.                                                                                                     Well as it is used in Exodus 16:23 ~~ Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy. Holy               I have a Strongs Concordance and i looked up the word holy.  AND This is the hebrew root of this simple word. {make, pronounce, or observe clean, ceremonially clean} ~~~~~~~~~        Very interesting. Now that I am grasping what, and how to keep the sabbath holy, and I observe Saturday as the Sabbath. It would be wonderful to bless ourselves, by taking a day off, to go out for a hike, maybe do some art, maybe something you love, and blesses OUR GOD & KING!                                                                                      We all need to work out our own  salvation with fear and trembling. {Philippians 2:12}   I strongly suggest to read the 10 commandments. See which ones you most certainly may need to sharpen and do a better job at keeping.  Yes we need to love our LORD & GOD with ALL our hearts.  So here I share Those 10 Commandments (not suggestions)                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~                             The Ten Commandments

20 And God spoke all these words:       “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

“You shall have no other gods before[a] me.

“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lordwill not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

13 “You shall not murder.      14 “You shall not commit adultery.        15 “You shall not steal.

16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

This settles it.  We certainly need to keep the 10 basic commandments and not suggestions of Our God and Creator!    Shalom to all who read this.

This year will be a Wonderful Year of Total Victories, Complete Healings, and Increased Clients for many.  Just wanted to stop in, make a post and declare 2018 WILL BE AWESOME & WONDERFUL in More ways than we imagine.  SHALOM TOO~

PSALM 108 
1 My heart is steadfast, O God!
    I will sing and make melody with all my being![a]
Awake, O harp and lyre!
    I will awake the dawn!
I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
    I will sing praises to you among the nations.
For your steadfast love is great above the heavens;
    your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
    Let your glory be over all the earth!
That your beloved ones may be delivered,
    give salvation by your right hand and answer me!
God has promised in his holiness:[b]
    “With exultation I will divide up Shechem
    and portion out the Valley of Succoth.
Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
    Ephraim is my helmet,
    Judah my scepter.
Moab is my washbasin;
    upon Edom I cast my shoe;
    over Philistia I shout in triumph.”
10 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
    Who will lead me to Edom?
11 Have you not rejected us, O God?
    You do not go out, O God, with our armies.
12 Oh grant us help against the foe,
    for vain is the salvation of man!
13 With God we shall do valiantly;
    it is he who will tread down our foe.
