Overview - The Name above all names - The sabbath -

The Sabbath
...that you may know that I am Yahweh
who sanctifies you... (Ex 31:13)

Did you know that Yahweh loves you so much, longing for an personal relationship with you, that he even set a whole day aside to spend with you? That he provides for all your needs, so you don't need to work on that day and instead may be strengthend in him?
The Sabbath is one of the greatest blessings in our weekly life! - A holy appointment once a week, a whole day that we may spend with our heavenly father, the creator of heaven and earth to be strengthend and refreshed in him - an everlasting covenant between him and us, his children.
Let us read what His word says about it!
And on the seventh day Elohim completed His work which He had made. And He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. And Elohim blessed the seventh day and sanctified it... (Gen 2:1-3)
And he set it to be a sign between him and the children of Israel for ever (Ezek 20:20):
It is a sign forever between Me and the sons of Israel; for in six days Yahweh made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed. (ex 31:17)
Therefore (Mark 2:27) he also wants us to rest on the seventh day: that also we may be refreshed (Ex 23:12) and draw near to him (Eze 46:3, Isa 66:23).

And so the Sabbath is full of blessings and promises:
So says Yahweh: Keep justice and do righteousness, for my Y’shua (Salvation) is coming soon, and My righteousness will be revealed. Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it; keeping the Sabbath, from defiling it; and keeping his hand from doing every evil. ...For so says Yahweh to the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths and choose things I am pleased with, and take hold of My covenant:
I, even I will give to them in My house and in My walls a hand and a name better than sons and than daughters; I will give them an everlasting name which shall not be cut off. And the sons of the foreigner, who join themselves to Yahweh to serve Him, and to love the name of Yahweh, to be His servants, everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and takes hold of My covenant: even them I will bring to My holy mount and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted on My altar, for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the peoples, states Adonai Yahweh, who gathers the outcasts of Israel; I will yet gather others beside him to his gathered ones. (Isa 56:1-2;4-8)
If you turn your foot away because of the Sabbath, from doing what you please on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, to the holiness of Yahweh, glorified; and shall glorify Him, to the holiness of not doing your own ways, from finding your own pleasure or speaking your own words; then you shall delight yourself in Yahweh. And I will cause you to ride on the heights of the earth, and make you eat with the inheritance of your father Jacob. For the mouth of Yahweh has spoken. (Isa 58:13-14)
The Sabbath, which was created at beginning of time for all mankind, will be there even til the end of it.
And it will be, from new moon to its new moon, and from Sabbath to its Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before Me, says Yahweh. (Is 66:23) ...shall worship at the door of that gate on the Sabbaths, and on the new moons, before Yahweh. (Eze 46:3)
Experience his blessings! Follow His invitation and spend this day with Him! Seek Him this Shabbat!
