The Sabbath is a day of rest. It is a remembrance of God creating the heaven, and the earth in the form of matter , and energy in what scientists call the beginning of the universe, or the Big Bang. I once heard from a rabbi that science is catching up to God. The great God came preceded the scientists who first formulated the big bang theory. Ever since the start of the universe Adonai/The Lord, has revealed Himself through the minds,hearts, and souls of men, and women through the accounts of scripture, and scientific breakthroughs of the last century. The Sabbath is in fact two days rolled into one, for the night is one day, and during the day is day. But, the Roman calendar we have dates time in a seven day week, and the Sabbath that has been practiced by the Jewish people have always fallen on Friday night, and Saturday day. According to a website called Bible Gateway the New International Bible, in Exodus Chapter 20 verse 8-11: “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath day of the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you nor your sons, and daughters, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day.Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy”. I believe that the Sabbath should be at least observed by not buying, selling, or defiling the seventh day. For the merchants in the streets and in governed public buildings are not doing themselves a favor by taking a day off from their markets and businesses. Man needs a day of rest, for without it the stress will build up and man cannot function the way God intended. To believe in God is a basic belief that many of the Jewish physicists, and philosophers had Maimonides is one Jewish philosopher. Neils Bohr is another Jewish physicists. Not, only those who were raised into a Jewish education of Hebrew studies, and scriptures, but those who believed in the God of Israel. Believing in the Commandments, and Yeshua who is the Commandments is beneficial to the mind, soul, and spirit. Without them, we are lost in the darkest abyss. Studying them has influenced a lot of people when they were young, and discovered new knowledge when they were older.
