It is written:
“Therefore you are to keep my Shabbat, because it is set apart for you…” (Exodus 31:14 Complete Jewish Bible )
Our union with the “Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua” does not change in anything the observance of the Torah.
Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, our Friend and Master, never told us to move Shabbat to Sunday.
Yeshua the Messiah, our Master, did not come to abolish the Torah; He came to give it Life, so we may live the Torah in ALL its fullness: “Don’t think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete” (Matthew 5:17).
Yeshua gave us access to the “Spiritual Isra’el”, the Kingdom of YAHWEH, his Elohim and Father, but this access, this freedom of life that He has conquered for us by His death and His resurrection must not be a pretext to live without the Torah or under our own rules and regulations.
Yeshua and His talmidim (disciples) first, then Paul and his contemporaries as well as the early non-Jewish Believers celebrated the Holy Shabbat.
Nothing has changed on this Holy Day of Shabbat of our Elohim; Yeshua the Messiah was and is the Living Torah !
What has changed, for the “Born Again Believers”, Jews or non-Jews, filled with the Ruach HaKodesh (The Spirit of YAHWEH) is the way to live it, a Day of Celebration, a Day of Joy, a Day of Happiness, a Day of Special Communion with our Elohim and our Saviour (away from the yoke of the tradition of men).
As it is written SHABBAT will ALWAYS be kept and Celebrated by ALL, as mentioned by the Prophet Isaiah (66: 22-23): “For just as the new heavens and the new earth that I am making will continue in my presence,” says ADONAI, “so will your descendants and your name continue. “Every month on Rosh-Hodesh and every week on SHABBAT, everyone living will come to worship in my presence,” says ADONAI.”
Yeshua the Messiah has neither exterminated the Torah to propose a new one, nor rejected Judaism to found Christianity. As Believers in the “Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Friend and Master, we are ALL, Jews and non-Jews, forming a single entity called “The Isra’el of YAHWEH”.
For this COMMUNITY of Believers in the “Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, there will be the same Torah for ALL OF US, Jews and non-Jews; this is a PERMANENT regulation through ALL generations; We are ALL, Jews and non-Jews, to be treated the same way before YAHWEH, the Elohim of Isra’el, the KING of the Universe, our Elohim and AVINU SHE-BA-SHAMAYIM (Heb. אָבִינוּ שָׁבַּשָׁמַיִם; “Our Father in Heaven”). The same Torah and standard of judgment will apply to both Jews and non-Jews, living TOGETHER. (Numbers 15:15-16)
In the New Yerushalayim, the Holy City, coming down out of Heaven from YAHWEH, the City will have a great high wall with twelve gates; and inscribed on the gates will be the names of the twelve tribes of Isra’el (Revelation 21:10,12). There will not be a Gate with the name “Church” sprung from the nations.
“SHABBAT SHALOM !” to ALL the Isra’el Family, consisting of those who have been set apart, Jews and non-Jews, by Yeshua the Messiah and called to be YAHWEH’s holy people.
Let us set our hearts on being OBEDIENT, taking our place in the “Spiritual Isra’el”, fulfilling our Destiny, reflecting the beauty and glory of YAHWEH’s Spirit (The Ruach HaKodesh) as we Serve Him, declaring the Good News of YAHWEH’s Love and Kindness.
