If you want to know the three most important keys to keeping the sabbath day Holy that were told in detail direct from the mouth of the almighty, all powerful, all knowing, all seeing, all present God, and the high riding blessings that come along with it, then listen to this.
First off, in today's working society you might not ever get the chance to have saturdays and sundays off from work, so that would make it virtually impossible for you to go to church and worship God, read the Bible and pray all day on the sabbath day, right?
Well, I'm going to introduce a suggestion to you that might sound a little bit controversial.
So listen up.
Let's say you work wednesday through sunday and have mondays and tuesdays off.
This would make tuesday your seventh day.
So, what if you could turn this day into your day of rest to honor the lord?
Couldn't you at least use this day to practice until God blesses you with saturdays and sundays off?
Not only do I think you can do this, but I also think you should.
Because listen, even if you work all day on sunday and go to the night service at your local church you still worked that day therefore it wasn't really a day of rest now was it.
That's why, in the next few minutes I'm going to explain exactly how you can practice sabbath keeping even if you can't make it to church on sundays.
Plus, I'll show you how you'll still be able to honor God and receive the blessing of "riding upon high places" just like the Bible says.
So let's begin then.
How To Keep The Sabbath Day Holy - Step #1 - Stop Finding Your Own Pleasure
With so many riduculous entertainment choices in today's society, it's no wonder why people feloniously claim they're to busy to read, study or meditate on the Bible.
But the truth is, it's just not pleasurable and entertaining enough for people to commit to.
Besides, the social presures are outrageous.
But, with all that aside, can you answer this one question?
Are you too busy to set one day aside for the lord?
Think about it, if you get two days off from work you got a day to get your house in order, or entertain yourself and a day to spend time with the lord.
How To Keep The Sabbath Day Holy - Step #2 - Call The Sabbath A Delight
If by some strange chance you actually are too busy to spend time with God and entertainment has nothing to do with it, then that's O.K.
But, you still need to set a day aside where you can really get into the word of God, pray, and do what He wants you to do.
After all, keeping the sabbath day holy is the fourth commandment out of the ten commandments that God gave to Moses.
You can be as busy as a bee for six days but on the seventh day you need to relax and spend Some time with the lord your God.
So what you need to do is keep saying it so you can commit to it.
Say "the sabbath is the lord's day and I need to keep it holy so I can honor God and keep His commandments and receive His blessings".
Then all you need to do is get the word of God so you can do this last and final most God pleasing and self beneficial step.
How To Keep The Sabbath Day Holy - Step #3 - Call The Lord Honorable
Yes, you need to be praising the lord and calling the lord honorable.
Because He is.
And because that's what you were created for.
But how are you going to do it if you don't experience His word?
You need to get the word so you'll know why you should be praising Him.
There's a boatload of reasons to praise God in the Bible and pretty soon if you keep praising Him He'll do some of those things for you and you'll really know how to praise Him then.
The best praises will always come from your own personal miraculous experiences, but until you get some you can praise Him for somebody else's.
David beating Goliath, Daniel and the Lions, Joseph and His brothers are some of the most popular ones.
But there are many other less popular ones that are just as great and might relate more to your situation.
Try Hannah and her barren womb, or how Job lost everything, or how Isaiah made it rain for forty days and nights.
There's so many blessings tied into praising God that you'll probably be amazed.
And one day I'll probably write an article about them.
But one point I'd like to make right now is this.
Praising God is the most powerful form of prayer there is, period.
If you don't do nothing else for the kingdom of God, I would suggest that you at least learn how to praise the lord.
Therefore, the three things you need to do in order to keep the sabbath day holy is, stop finding your own pleasure, call the sabbath a delight, and call the lord honorable.
Then you'll please God and He will Cause you to ride upon high places just like He promised.
Now, how simple is that?
And noooo, riding upon high places does not mean doing drugs while driving and ducking from the police.
He's talking about living a fun and exciting life full of adventure and health with Him for the kingdom of God.
Here, read it for yourself.
Isaiah 54:13-14 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: Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
