What is Sabbath? Sabbath respresents something important in relation to the Millenial reign of Yeshua. The 1000 year reign is understood to be a day of “Sabbath” which is why, in the Gospel’s , Yeshua says “I am Master of the Sabbath.”
For thousands of years the Sabbath has functioned as a weekly dress rehersal of this promised Kingdom. Part of the rehersal is drinking wine and breaking bread to celebrate the time of redemption. As Yeshua said during the last supper that when He returns He will drink the 4th cup of redemption with us.
The rehersal is a meal representing the marriage supper of the lamb, and during the meal there is an expectation that the Messiah will come and knock at the door, making the words of Yeshua in Revelation 3:20 so special, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.”
Another part of the celebration is the song of Proverbs 31. The men at the table sing to the women in praise that they have chosen to walk in the fear of the Lord and host the Presence of God in the home.
This day of rest has so much spiritual significance. Ultimately, it is to help us stop and remember who we are in our Messiah, and to remember to be ready for His coming. And as we wait, we can learn to cease being busy for a moment and to sit and dine with Him; to break bread and drink the wine of joyfulness!
One day a week is what our Father requested for us to “keep holy.” In other words, to stop, take a breath, and remember the promise of the time to come when Yeshua is going to rule as King on earth. Let us never forget to be ready for His coming. What a feast that will be!!!
