DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR AUGUST 10, 2019
Ezekiel 20:11-14 (ASV)
11 And I gave them my statutes, and showed them mine ordinances, which if a man does, he shall live in them. 12 Moreover also I gave them my Sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am Yahweh that sanctified them. 13 But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness: they walked not in my statutes, and they rejected my ordinances, which if a man keeps, he shall live in them; and my Sabbaths they greatly profaned. Then I said I would pour out my wrath upon them in the wilderness, to consume them. 14 But I wrought for my name’s sake, that it should not be profaned in the sight of the nations, in whose sight I brought them out.
Almighty Yahweh has given us the Sabbaths for a sign that we are His people if we keep them. We sanctify His Holy and righteous name by being faithful to the covenant which He has given us through the blood of Yahshua our Messiah. The term Sabbath is plural in this passage because this includes the 7 high Sabbaths of Lev. 23 as well as the weekly Sabbath mentioned as a feast day there. Read Lev. 23 in its entirety and see that all the Sabbaths are feast of Yahweh. Our attitude should be changed as we look at the Sabbath day as a feast day of Yahweh. Yahweh bless you as you keep His Holy Sabbath day.
