Sabbath -- When Is It?

                                                                  Ernie L. Hoch

“Stop bringing futile offerings, incense, it is an abomination to Me.
                                               New Moons, Sabbaths, the calling of meetings –
                                              I am unable to bear unrighteousness and assembly.
                                       My being hates
your New Moons and your appointed times,
                                           they are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them.”

YeshaYahu  (Isaiah) 1:13-14 ISR Version

“Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart. ”
                                                             Shemoth (Exodus) 20:8

        Many will ask this question after reading the title, “is this just another article that proscribes Saturday as the Sabbath over Sunday, or Sunday as the Sabbath over Saturday?”  The answer to this is a resounding “No.”  You might be surprised if I should flip a clue and say that an argument could be made that both are right about the same amount of time.  To the person who remains “boxed” into their current set of beliefs, red flags are probably flying high right about now. If you have even so much as a sliver of an open mind, hang in there; read on and allow the Ruach haKodesh  (the set apart Spirit) to take these seeds and do with them as the Spirit intends. 
        If the two bolded words in the above passage of Scripture mean anything, then I’m sure that whatever belief you are currently of, (Saturday Sabbath or Sunday Sabbath) you are telling yourself that the “your” must mean “the other guy’s beliefs”. We’ve all been taught, trained and thoroughly convinced that we are doing it right, right?
        Let me say right now, that I do believe that there are some of Yahweh’s chosen who are, in fact, keeping Sabbath as Yahweh intended.  Are the others wrong in what they are doing?  Who am I to judge if Yahweh has not yet chosen others to open their eyes to His truth and His ways?  For I will certainly not deliberately judge another. This writing is to present what historical documentation has been currently uncovered along with new revelations in Scripture.  Once your eyes are opened to the subject matter of this article, you might be surprised at how the Ruach will reveal much more in the Scriptures than we had never considered before.
