“‘And it will be that from New Moon to New Moon, from Shabbat to Shabbat, all of humanity will worship before Me,’ says The Eternal.”
Welcome to Your Sabbath Invitation: Partnership in God’s Ultimate Celebration, and welcome to a Sabbath journey. Perhaps you are here to inquire about the “Invitation” and to satisfy your curiosities concerning a partnership with God. Perhaps you hoped to widen your understanding of the Sabbath. In either case, your presence is no accident. Your Sabbath Invitation is a unique request based on Isaiah 66:23, where Isaiah prophesies that all of humanity will celebrate the Sabbath at the end of time. Did you know that Sabbath observance is not a list of “do’s” and “do not’s”? Rather, the Sabbath (Shabbat) is a gift from God that offers you an opportunity to soak in the Amplified Presence of God. So, Your Sabbath Invitation prepares you to enter into a Sabbath state of mind—to be enveloped in a sanctified period, freed from worry and anxiety related to your personal needs.
One goal of the book is to inspire you to become a “Sabbath Participator” and a “Sabbath Anticipator.” Abraham was the first Sabbath Anticipator, and developing a Sabbath lifestyle is a process. Therefore, Your Sabbath Invitation expounds on the “why’s” and “how’s” of the Sabbath. The book will teach you how to decode specific passages concerning Shabbat and how to decipher numerous Scriptures in a Hebraic way.
If you desire a deeper relationship with God, please join me to excavate revelational nuggets in Genesis, Exodus, Isaiah, the Psalms, and Ruth. You will discover that the Sabbath has always existed: God created Sabbath “At the beginning.”
