"Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy."(Exodus 20:8)
What is a Sabbath Day
The seventh day of the week. It is the day when God ended His works and got rested. In man and other faith believer, the sabbath day is Sunday.
The above descriptions are the basic meaning of Sabbath Day. Remember that we are not going to discuss here what you have learn from religious doctrine which is the basic doctrines but we are going to post what is the spiritual meaning of Sabbath Day.
A Rest Day
The day described by the Bible which is the Sabbath Day. People believe that in Sabbath day, man must rest and don't do anything. But our Lord Jesus Christ taught his disciple what is Sabbath Day spiritually.
"And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him."(Matthew 12:10)
In Matthew 12:10, people are referring sabbath as a literal days. What is the answer of our Lord?
"And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days."(Matthew 12:11-12)
Our Redeemer told the people that sabbath is a day to do good things.
Our Lord is a Lord of good deeds, and doing good things is a sabbath.
"For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day. "(Matthew 12:8)
Sabbath according to Biblical quotes, is a rest day of man soul where you can find the Lord Jesus, who was also the Lord of Sabbath.
"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls."(Matthew 11:29)
Hey GetSickCure, you have said that sabbath is a rest day? How can it be that is a working day?
A very short answer on this is, "Sabbath Day is a day of working God's will but it is a rest day on doing wickedness."
A sabbath day is a rest day on doing your own ways and a rest of doing earthly pleasure.
"If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:"(Isaiah 58:13)
Now that you know what is the spiritual sabbath day, it is now a sabbath day everyday (not just Sunday) to those who are doing good deeds and Godliness work.
