SIGN OF THE SABBATH
Was the book of Hebrews written for Sabbath-keepers? Christ in you is the sign of the Son of Man. Christ come in your flesh, in the flesh of the church and manifest as the Body of Christ is the sign of Kingdom veracity. It is the sign that here is the Kingdom of Heaven manifest as Jesus multiplied in His people.
What is the Sabbath and Sabbath-keeping a sign of?
It’s a sign of a dismissive attitude to the accomplishments of the cross. It’s a sign that reads, ‘We have no understanding of what Holy Spirit, Father and Jesus have wrought for us through the cross and resurrection of Jesus.
‘.. And who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace’ Hebrews 6.6 NIV.
It’s a sign that says, ‘God did something for us but we missed it completely, turned back the clock, undid life in the Spirit and negated Christ come in our flesh. Sabbath and the Sabbath-keeping icon is a sign that says, ‘Christ has not come in our flesh. We will not have the Son of Man to live in us. We’ll settle for the law come in our flesh.’ Sabbath is a sign that says. ‘Who wants the gospel of the Kingdom and the teaching of Christ and the apostles? Nah ..we’ve got our own gospel and we’ll stick with that.
“The Sabbath” is the sign that we are not led by the Spirit of Christ, have not entered the Kingdom of God and Christ has not come in our flesh.
For many The Sabbath is a false grace and a false christ. But you have a real Christ and a real life in Jesus. The reality is Christ. He is your ‘divine rest for human restlessness.’ In Jesus you have rest and life. Infinite and eternal life is yours in Jesus, welling up in new creation power.
‘This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world’ 1 John 4.2, 3 NIV.
