Happy Sabbath! / What day is the Sabbath?

    Hi , everyone! I hope all of you have had a wonderful week! Today, Saturday, is the day appointed by God to be our day of rest. We are to spend the 7th day of the week to in worship and praise of our creator, GOD! 
     Exodus 20:11 says : " For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth,the sea,  and all that is in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it." 

       It is important to keep the true Sabbath because..... Exodus 31:13 says : " Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you." 

      Sunday, the first day is also mentioned in the Bible . Matthew 28:1 says : " In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn towards the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene , and the other Mary to see the sepulchre ."   The dictionary definition of Sunday is as follows:  " the first day of the week, observed as the sabbath by most Christian sects." ( taken from Dictionary).

     Jesus even kept the Sabbath in His death. He died on Friday, rested on Saturday, and rose on Sunday. 

     If the day was changed , wouldn't Jesus tell us in the BIBLE? Hebrews 4:8 says : " For if Jesus had given them rest, then would He not afterward have spoken of another day?" If Jesus told us in the Bible that the Sabbath is the seventh day, Saturday, if it was changed , wouldn't He tell us? He wouldn't want us to be deceived.

            Don't take my word for it, study it out! Study the Bible for yourself and let the Holy Spirit guide you!

               Happy Sabbath, friends!

         Hello! Good Morning! Sorry about the long space between blog posts! I have been comtemplating this very post for a while, but today's the day! I have done a post similar HERE, but I feel it's time to do it again! 

        What does it mean to be beautiful? Your looks? Your heart ? Or both? The world looks at the outside, the LORD looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 says : "........for man looketh on the outward appearance , but the Lord looketh on the heart." 

        Psalms 139: 13 says : " I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."  Do you KNOW that you are BEAUTIFUL? God made YOU and me , and if He created us , we can be assured that we are BEAUTIFUL! 

       But do you know what came make us even more beautiful? Glorifying God with our heart and our bodies. Having a pure heart is what really should matter most to us! 

       I hope you all have a wonderful day , and remember: YOU are BEAUTIFUL because JESUS made YOU!

Brotherly Love

   Hi there! Hope you all have a had a great week! All this week I have been thinking about JOY , Jesus first, Others second, You last. It really is a very important concept. So, that's where I got the idea for this post. here it goes!
            The title of this post is " Brotherly Love" . What does it mean to truly love your brother? Let's look at Roman's 12:10 " Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another." Preferring one another .......... That means putting others first! Like in the JOY acronym! We are not to                         be selfish , always putting ourselves first. We are called to be unselfish, "preferring" one another! We are to put JESUS first ultimately, then others. Brotherly Love also means giving of yourself, always looking to help others. Let's love our "brothers" today and always!
These girls love their brother! ( Petey, second from left)
