  • ROBERT MORRIS: Do you realizethat God could have
  • 00:00:02.818 --> 00:00:03.252
  • had a six day week?
  • 00:00:03.352 --> 00:00:04.853
  • When we think about that,where'd the seven day week
  • 00:00:04.953 --> 00:00:06.221
  • come from?
  • 00:00:06.321 --> 00:00:07.222
  • It came from God.
  • 00:00:07.322 --> 00:00:08.557
  • He could have worked six daysand started it all over again.
  • 00:00:08.657 --> 00:00:11.326
  • He's the one that came upwith a seven day week,
  • 00:00:11.427 --> 00:00:13.929
  • and one of them asa day of rest.
  • 00:00:14.029 --> 00:00:15.497
  • ♪ ♪
  • 00:00:15.597 --> 00:00:30.546
  • ROBERT: So we're in this series,talking about "God's Top Ten
  • 00:00:30.646 --> 00:00:33.615
  • List", the Ten Commandments,but I want to remind you that
  • 00:00:33.715 --> 00:00:37.419
  • I think there's a principlebehind each commandment
  • 00:00:37.519 --> 00:00:41.657
  • that will enhance ourrelationship with God
  • 00:00:41.757 --> 00:00:43.826
  • and others.
  • 00:00:43.926 --> 00:00:45.060
  • So this week, I believe it'sthe principle of rest,
  • 00:00:45.160 --> 00:00:48.964
  • and we're talking about thefourth commandment.
  • 00:00:49.064 --> 00:00:52.334
  • Exodus 20:8, "Remember theSabbath day, to keep it holy",
  • 00:00:52.434 --> 00:00:59.208
  • or to keep it set apart, to keepit separate from the other
  • 00:00:59.308 --> 00:01:01.844
  • six days.
  • 00:01:01.944 --> 00:01:03.078
  • "Six days you shall laborand do all" your e-mails.
  • 00:01:03.178 --> 00:01:12.054
  • Just bringing it up tomodern day language here.
  • 00:01:12.154 --> 00:01:16.792
  • "All your work", notice theword all, "but the seventh day
  • 00:01:16.892 --> 00:01:21.830
  • is the Sabbathof the Lord your God.
  • 00:01:21.930 --> 00:01:25.267
  • In it you shall do no work, you,nor your son, nor your daughter,
  • 00:01:25.367 --> 00:01:33.108
  • nor your male servant, nor yourfemale servant,
  • 00:01:33.208 --> 00:01:35.444
  • nor your cattle,nor your stranger
  • 00:01:35.544 --> 00:01:38.180
  • who is within your gates.
  • 00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:39.915
  • For", in other words, thisis the reason, "in six days
  • 00:01:40.015 --> 00:01:44.386
  • the Lord made the heavensand the earth, the sea,
  • 00:01:44.486 --> 00:01:47.589
  • and all that is in them, andrested the seventh day.
  • 00:01:47.689 --> 00:01:52.127
  • Therefore the Lord blessedthe Sabbath day and hallowed
  • 00:01:52.227 --> 00:01:56.331
  • it", or called it holy,called it set apart.
  • 00:01:56.431 --> 00:01:59.801
  • Okay?
  • 00:01:59.902 --> 00:02:00.936
  • So, we don't keep the TenCommandments to be saved.
  • 00:02:01.036 --> 00:02:03.805
  • We're saved bygrace through Jesus.
  • 00:02:03.906 --> 00:02:06.175
  • But there are blessingsif we keep the Ten Commandments,
  • 00:02:06.275 --> 00:02:09.278
  • and there areconsequences if we don't.
  • 00:02:09.378 --> 00:02:11.747
  • But, here's what's amazing to meabout this commandment,
  • 00:02:11.847 --> 00:02:13.849
  • the fourth commandment.
  • 00:02:13.949 --> 00:02:15.951
  • It seems like that believerstoday believe that we should
  • 00:02:16.051 --> 00:02:21.690
  • keep nine of the TenCommandments,
  • 00:02:21.790 --> 00:02:27.563
  • but we don't need to keep thisone.
  • 00:02:27.663 --> 00:02:29.598
  • I want you tothink about it.
  • 00:02:29.698 --> 00:02:31.300
  • We believe we should nothave any other gods before Him.
  • 00:02:31.400 --> 00:02:35.070
  • We believe we shouldnot have idols.
  • 00:02:35.170 --> 00:02:37.873
  • We believe we should nottake His name in vain.
  • 00:02:37.973 --> 00:02:40.709
  • Let's skip the fourth one.
  • 00:02:40.809 --> 00:02:42.144
  • We believe we should honorour mother and father.
  • 00:02:42.244 --> 00:02:44.680
  • We believe we should notlie, we should not steal,
  • 00:02:44.780 --> 00:02:46.882
  • we should not murder, we shouldnot commit adultery,
  • 00:02:46.982 --> 00:02:49.351
  • and we should not covet.
  • 00:02:49.451 --> 00:02:51.486
  • Everyone agree with that?
  • 00:02:51.587 --> 00:02:53.855
  • So, why do we think weshouldn't keep this one?
  • 00:02:53.956 --> 00:02:58.126
  • I think we should, and I'mgoing to give you some reasons
  • 00:02:58.227 --> 00:03:01.296
  • why this is a principle thatwill help us to rest.
  • 00:03:01.396 --> 00:03:04.566
  • It's a principleof rest, all right?
  • 00:03:04.666 --> 00:03:06.068
  • So, here's number one.
  • 00:03:06.168 --> 00:03:07.769
  • There are reasonsGod said to rest.
  • 00:03:07.869 --> 00:03:11.473
  • There are reasons, and I'mgoing to have two sub-points
  • 00:03:11.573 --> 00:03:13.408
  • under point one, and thenI'll have point two
  • 00:03:13.508 --> 00:03:15.077
  • and point three, all right?
  • 00:03:15.177 --> 00:03:16.078
  • There are reasonsGod said to rest.
  • 00:03:16.178 --> 00:03:17.546
  • Here's the first reason.
  • 00:03:17.646 --> 00:03:19.047
  • It gives God the opportunity toprovide for us supernaturally.
  • 00:03:19.147 --> 00:03:24.519
  • It gives God theopportunity,
  • 00:03:24.620 --> 00:03:26.989
  • when we don't work seven days aweek, to provide
  • 00:03:27.089 --> 00:03:29.891
  • for us supernaturally.
  • 00:03:29.992 --> 00:03:32.227
  • If you want to flip back,you can, just a few chapters,
  • 00:03:32.327 --> 00:03:34.529
  • Chapter 16.
  • 00:03:34.630 --> 00:03:35.764
  • This is when He provided themanna in the wilderness.
  • 00:03:35.864 --> 00:03:39.167
  • Exodus 16:23, "Then he saidto them, "This is what the Lord
  • 00:03:39.268 --> 00:03:43.372
  • has said", so thisis Moses, talking to the people.
  • 00:03:43.472 --> 00:03:45.874
  • "Tomorrow is a Sabbath rest,a holy Sabbath to the Lord.
  • 00:03:45.974 --> 00:03:51.213
  • Bake what you will bake today,and boil what you will boil,
  • 00:03:51.313 --> 00:03:54.082
  • and lay up foryourselves all that remains,
  • 00:03:54.182 --> 00:03:56.652
  • to be kept until morning."
  • 00:03:56.752 --> 00:03:58.654
  • So they laid it up untilmorning, as Moses commanded,
  • 00:03:58.754 --> 00:04:01.657
  • and it did not stink, norwere there any worms in it."
  • 00:04:01.757 --> 00:04:04.760
  • Stop just for a momentand let me say this.
  • 00:04:04.860 --> 00:04:06.662
  • If you remember, when theystarted doing the manna,
  • 00:04:06.762 --> 00:04:08.297
  • he said only gather whatyou need for one day.
  • 00:04:08.397 --> 00:04:11.733
  • But the people didn'tbelieve that it would be
  • 00:04:11.833 --> 00:04:13.802
  • there the next day, so theykept more, but what they kept
  • 00:04:13.902 --> 00:04:17.639
  • more than they needed, thinkabout this.
  • 00:04:17.739 --> 00:04:20.742
  • When they kept more thanthey needed, it began to stink
  • 00:04:20.842 --> 00:04:26.048
  • the next day,and it had worms in it.
  • 00:04:26.148 --> 00:04:28.984
  • See, they weren't trustingGod still for provision.
  • 00:04:29.084 --> 00:04:31.353
  • So then he said, on thesixth day, you gather it in,
  • 00:04:31.453 --> 00:04:34.656
  • enough for two days, and thenext day it didn't stink,
  • 00:04:34.756 --> 00:04:37.826
  • didn't have any worms.
  • 00:04:37.926 --> 00:04:39.161
  • God did something, asupernatural provision.
  • 00:04:39.261 --> 00:04:41.630
  • Look at Verse 25 now.
  • 00:04:41.730 --> 00:04:43.665
  • "Then Moses said, "Eatthat today, for today
  • 00:04:43.765 --> 00:04:45.367
  • is a Sabbath to the Lord.
  • 00:04:45.467 --> 00:04:47.202
  • Today", watch this, "youwill not find it in the field."
  • 00:04:47.302 --> 00:04:52.708
  • Six days you shall gatherit, but on the seventh day,
  • 00:04:52.808 --> 00:04:56.411
  • the Sabbath", watch this,"there will be none.
  • 00:04:56.511 --> 00:05:00.949
  • Now it happened that some ofthe people went out
  • 00:05:01.049 --> 00:05:02.584
  • on the seventh day" to sende-mails, "to gather,
  • 00:05:02.684 --> 00:05:08.957
  • but they found no provision fromGod for working on that day.
  • 00:05:09.057 --> 00:05:15.397
  • And the Lord said to Moses,"How long do you refuse
  • 00:05:15.497 --> 00:05:18.800
  • to keep my commandmentsand my laws?
  • 00:05:18.900 --> 00:05:21.069
  • See!
  • 00:05:21.169 --> 00:05:22.270
  • For the Lord has given you"this is a gift from God
  • 00:05:22.371 --> 00:05:25.006
  • to get a day off, "the Sabbath,therefore He gives you
  • 00:05:25.107 --> 00:05:29.544
  • on the sixth daybread for two days.
  • 00:05:29.644 --> 00:05:31.747
  • Let every manremain in his place.
  • 00:05:31.847 --> 00:05:33.482
  • Let no man go out of hisplace on the seventh day."
  • 00:05:33.582 --> 00:05:36.118
  • So the people restedon the seventh day."
  • 00:05:36.218 --> 00:05:39.654
  • No provision.
  • 00:05:39.755 --> 00:05:40.889
  • Now, this is Exodus 20.
  • 00:05:40.989 --> 00:05:42.924
  • We read it, but rememberI told you the Ten Commandments
  • 00:05:43.024 --> 00:05:45.961
  • are alsoin Deuteronomy 5.
  • 00:05:46.061 --> 00:05:48.130
  • Exodus 20 uses the wordremember, Deuteronomy 5
  • 00:05:48.230 --> 00:05:50.999
  • uses the word observe.
  • 00:05:51.099 --> 00:05:53.135
  • Jewish people remember andobserve the Sabbath day.
  • 00:05:53.235 --> 00:05:56.338
  • But in Deuteronomy5, He adds something.
  • 00:05:56.438 --> 00:05:58.673
  • He says you don't need towork on this day
  • 00:05:58.774 --> 00:06:00.776
  • because you used to be slaves,and I redeemed you.
  • 00:06:00.876 --> 00:06:05.914
  • So, let me explainsomething to us.
  • 00:06:06.014 --> 00:06:07.282
  • Slaves don't get a day off.
  • 00:06:07.382 --> 00:06:10.719
  • Only the wealthy, the elite,or royalty got days off.
  • 00:06:10.819 --> 00:06:17.893
  • We are children of the King!
  • 00:06:17.993 --> 00:06:22.063
  • He's saying to Israel, youdidn't get a day off
  • 00:06:22.164 --> 00:06:24.766
  • when you were in bondage.
  • 00:06:24.866 --> 00:06:25.734
  • Think about this!
  • 00:06:25.834 --> 00:06:26.902
  • During the week, we'reslaves, slaves to schedule,
  • 00:06:27.002 --> 00:06:32.140
  • slaves to commitments,slaves to appointments,
  • 00:06:32.240 --> 00:06:35.210
  • slaves to provision,slaves to work.
  • 00:06:35.310 --> 00:06:38.613
  • But He says, one daya week, you're free.
  • 00:06:38.713 --> 00:06:41.950
  • You don't have to work.
  • 00:06:42.050 --> 00:06:43.185
  • I'll provide for you.
  • 00:06:43.285 --> 00:06:44.252
  • I'll take care of you.
  • 00:06:44.352 --> 00:06:45.887
  • I mean, it's all throughScripture, what God's saying
  • 00:06:45.987 --> 00:06:47.756
  • I'm trying togive you a day off.
  • 00:06:47.856 --> 00:06:50.358
  • This is like tithing to me.
  • 00:06:50.459 --> 00:06:52.727
  • God can do more with 90%than you can do with 100%.
  • 00:06:52.828 --> 00:06:57.699
  • Okay, listen to me.
  • 00:06:57.799 --> 00:06:58.900
  • God can do more in six daysthan you can in seven.
  • 00:06:59.000 --> 00:07:04.072
  • If you want to know how muchHe can do in six days,
  • 00:07:04.172 --> 00:07:06.441
  • look around you.
  • 00:07:06.541 --> 00:07:09.611
  • He can create the galaxy,the universe, in six days.
  • 00:07:09.711 --> 00:07:13.915
  • He can do it.
  • 00:07:14.015 --> 00:07:14.950
  • So, it gives God anopportunity to provide
  • 00:07:15.050 --> 00:07:17.118
  • for us supernaturally.
  • 00:07:17.219 --> 00:07:18.253
  • Here's the second reasonwhy, under point one here,
  • 00:07:18.353 --> 00:07:21.256
  • a sub-point.
  • 00:07:21.356 --> 00:07:22.457
  • It gives us the opportunityto rest and be refreshed.
  • 00:07:22.557 --> 00:07:26.061
  • It gives us an opportunityto rest and be refreshed.
  • 00:07:26.161 --> 00:07:30.131
  • Exodus 31:14-17, "You shallkeep the Sabbath, therefore,
  • 00:07:30.232 --> 00:07:34.903
  • for it is holy to you.
  • 00:07:35.003 --> 00:07:37.005
  • Everyone who profanes itshall surely be put to death,
  • 00:07:37.105 --> 00:07:42.344
  • for whoever does any work on it,that person shall be cut off
  • 00:07:42.444 --> 00:07:46.147
  • from among his people.
  • 00:07:46.248 --> 00:07:47.549
  • Work shall be done for sixdays, but the seventh
  • 00:07:47.649 --> 00:07:50.352
  • is the Sabbath of rest,holy to the Lord.
  • 00:07:50.452 --> 00:07:54.489
  • Whoever does any work on theSabbath day,
  • 00:07:54.589 --> 00:07:57.158
  • he shall surely be put to death.
  • 00:07:57.259 --> 00:07:59.561
  • Therefore the children of Israelshall keep the Sabbath"
  • 00:07:59.661 --> 00:08:02.163
  • remember, we've been draftedinto the nation of Israel,
  • 00:08:02.264 --> 00:08:04.633
  • "to observe the Sabbaththroughout their generations",
  • 00:08:04.733 --> 00:08:07.769
  • watch, "as a perpetualcovenant."
  • 00:08:07.869 --> 00:08:11.540
  • How long is perpetual?
  • 00:08:11.640 --> 00:08:13.508
  • Forever, thank you.
  • 00:08:13.608 --> 00:08:14.843
  • "It is a sign between Me and thechildren of Israel forever",
  • 00:08:14.943 --> 00:08:18.880
  • there it is, "for in six daysthe Lord made the heavens
  • 00:08:18.980 --> 00:08:21.316
  • and the earth,and on the seventh day
  • 00:08:21.416 --> 00:08:24.219
  • He rested and was refreshed."
  • 00:08:24.319 --> 00:08:26.988
  • You've got to understandtoo, that the Sabbath
  • 00:08:27.088 --> 00:08:29.591
  • was the greatest signto the world.
  • 00:08:29.691 --> 00:08:33.795
  • He said it's a sign, so itwas the greatest sign to
  • 00:08:33.895 --> 00:08:37.265
  • the world for thousands ofyears, because no other nation
  • 00:08:37.365 --> 00:08:40.969
  • before Israelrested one day a week.
  • 00:08:41.069 --> 00:08:43.505
  • So what they would do back thenis they would be doing business
  • 00:08:43.605 --> 00:08:46.975
  • with Israel, and to bring it upto modern terms,
  • 00:08:47.075 --> 00:08:50.145
  • they would e-mail them andsay, listen, I'm going
  • 00:08:50.245 --> 00:08:52.314
  • to be in town on Saturday,the seventh day,
  • 00:08:52.414 --> 00:08:55.150
  • and so we'll finish up thiscontract.
  • 00:08:55.250 --> 00:08:57.519
  • They would e-mail back,Israel would e-mail back.
  • 00:08:57.619 --> 00:08:59.588
  • We don't work onthe seventh day.
  • 00:08:59.688 --> 00:09:01.890
  • They would e-mail back.
  • 00:09:01.990 --> 00:09:02.991
  • Why don't you workon the seventh day?
  • 00:09:03.091 --> 00:09:05.060
  • And they'd say, well,because it's the day
  • 00:09:05.160 --> 00:09:06.361
  • that the Lord rested aftercreating the world in six days.
  • 00:09:06.461 --> 00:09:09.564
  • They'd e-mailback, the Lord who?
  • 00:09:09.664 --> 00:09:13.468
  • Are you all following me?
  • 00:09:13.568 --> 00:09:14.936
  • And it was a way to witness!
  • 00:09:15.036 --> 00:09:17.772
  • It was a way toshare their faith!
  • 00:09:17.872 --> 00:09:20.408
  • Hey, we don't do -- you mean,and they e-mail back,
  • 00:09:20.508 --> 00:09:22.510
  • you mean, we weren'tcreated by a big bang?
  • 00:09:22.611 --> 00:09:26.548
  • No, God created us in six days,and rested on the seventh day.
  • 00:09:26.648 --> 00:09:35.190
  • It's a sign that we, asbelievers, don't have to work
  • 00:09:35.290 --> 00:09:38.526
  • seven days a week.
  • 00:09:38.627 --> 00:09:40.295
  • It's a sign about what God did,so it's all through Scripture
  • 00:09:40.395 --> 00:09:44.532
  • that it's a sign.
  • 00:09:44.633 --> 00:09:45.934
  • Now, there's a word herethat I have to explain.
  • 00:09:46.034 --> 00:09:49.337
  • It says "God rested"
  • 00:09:49.437 --> 00:09:52.707
  • God rested andwas refreshed".
  • 00:09:52.807 --> 00:10:00.415
  • Now, that is tough for atheologian to read that.
  • 00:10:00.515 --> 00:10:05.387
  • How could an omnipotent,all-powerful God be refreshed?
  • 00:10:05.487 --> 00:10:12.293
  • And I want you tothink about it.
  • 00:10:12.394 --> 00:10:13.294
  • A God who never getstired, never sleeps.
  • 00:10:13.395 --> 00:10:15.330
  • He says, I never gettired, never sleep.
  • 00:10:15.430 --> 00:10:17.232
  • How could God be refreshed?
  • 00:10:17.332 --> 00:10:21.202
  • Well, obviously you always tryto go to the original language.
  • 00:10:21.302 --> 00:10:23.605
  • In the Hebrew, this word,refreshed, means took breath,
  • 00:10:23.705 --> 00:10:29.377
  • and God breathed in.
  • 00:10:29.477 --> 00:10:33.882
  • What had He beendoing for six days?
  • 00:10:33.982 --> 00:10:37.085
  • He'd been creating, buthow does God create?
  • 00:10:37.185 --> 00:10:39.087
  • He speaks.
  • 00:10:39.187 --> 00:10:40.355
  • What do you dowhen you speak?
  • 00:10:40.455 --> 00:10:42.424
  • You breathe out.
  • 00:10:42.524 --> 00:10:45.527
  • "Let there be light."
  • 00:10:45.627 --> 00:10:56.671
  • "And He breathed into man,and man became a living soul."
  • 00:10:56.771 --> 00:11:01.743
  • Do you remember this?
  • 00:11:01.843 --> 00:11:02.811
  • So, for six days He'dbeen breathing out.
  • 00:11:02.911 --> 00:11:05.814
  • On the seventh day, He breathedin, and He was refreshed.
  • 00:11:05.914 --> 00:11:12.887
  • I have a real simplequestion for you.
  • 00:11:12.987 --> 00:11:14.622
  • If God refreshesHimself, why don't you?
  • 00:11:14.723 --> 00:11:21.529
  • I read this from a Jewishperson about an average
  • 00:11:21.629 --> 00:11:25.700
  • Shabbat, Sabbath.
  • 00:11:25.800 --> 00:11:27.635
  • So, there are other things thatcould have been a lot longer,
  • 00:11:27.736 --> 00:11:29.871
  • so I condensed itto the gist of it, okay?
  • 00:11:29.971 --> 00:11:32.006
  • Because there are prayers thatare spoken and things like that,
  • 00:11:32.107 --> 00:11:35.110
  • but let mejust read this to you.
  • 00:11:35.210 --> 00:11:36.978
  • Shabbat begins at sunset becauseof the story of creation,
  • 00:11:37.078 --> 00:11:40.815
  • it says, "And there was eveningand there was morning, one day".
  • 00:11:40.915 --> 00:11:44.886
  • Shabbat candles are lit anda blessing is recited
  • 00:11:44.986 --> 00:11:48.089
  • no later than 18 minutesbefore sunset.
  • 00:11:48.189 --> 00:11:51.926
  • Two candles are lit,representing
  • 00:11:52.026 --> 00:11:53.728
  • the two commandments.
  • 00:11:53.828 --> 00:11:55.029
  • In other words, the fourthcommandment recorded
  • 00:11:55.130 --> 00:11:56.531
  • in both places.
  • 00:11:56.631 --> 00:11:57.832
  • Exodus 20 says to remember,Deuteronomy 5 says to observe.
  • 00:11:57.932 --> 00:12:02.337
  • The family then attendsa brief evening service.
  • 00:12:02.437 --> 00:12:05.273
  • After services, the familycomes home for a festive,
  • 00:12:05.373 --> 00:12:08.543
  • leisurely dinner.
  • 00:12:08.643 --> 00:12:10.512
  • By the time all of this iscompleted, it may be 9:00 p.m.
  • 00:12:10.612 --> 00:12:13.014
  • or later.
  • 00:12:13.114 --> 00:12:14.149
  • The family has an hour ortwo to talk, study Torah,
  • 00:12:14.249 --> 00:12:16.684
  • and then go to sleep.
  • 00:12:16.785 --> 00:12:18.319
  • The next morning, Shabbatservices begin around 9:00
  • 00:12:18.419 --> 00:12:20.789
  • and continueuntil about noon.
  • 00:12:20.889 --> 00:12:23.124
  • After services, by the way,our services
  • 00:12:23.224 --> 00:12:25.493
  • are shorter than that,so you can thank God.
  • 00:12:25.593 --> 00:12:29.097
  • All right, so.
  • 00:12:29.197 --> 00:12:31.533
  • After services, the familyhas another leisurely,
  • 00:12:31.633 --> 00:12:34.869
  • festive meal, then thefamily studies Torah
  • 00:12:34.969 --> 00:12:38.173
  • for a while, talks, takes anafternoon walk,
  • 00:12:38.273 --> 00:12:41.376
  • plays some checkers, or engagesin other leisure activities.
  • 00:12:41.476 --> 00:12:46.414
  • A short afternoonnap is not uncommon.
  • 00:12:46.514 --> 00:12:50.018
  • It is traditional to have athird meal
  • 00:12:50.118 --> 00:12:52.287
  • before Shabbat is over.
  • 00:12:52.387 --> 00:12:54.155
  • Shabbat ends at nightfall whenthere are three stars visible,
  • 00:12:54.255 --> 00:12:57.659
  • approximately40 minutes after sunset.
  • 00:12:57.759 --> 00:12:59.994
  • At the conclusion ofShabbat, a blessing is recited
  • 00:13:00.094 --> 00:13:02.597
  • regarding the division betweenthe sacred and the secular,
  • 00:13:02.697 --> 00:13:07.168
  • between Shabbat and the workingdays.
  • 00:13:07.268 --> 00:13:10.505
  • As you can see, Shabbat is afull day when it is properly
  • 00:13:10.605 --> 00:13:13.208
  • observed, and very relaxing.
  • 00:13:13.308 --> 00:13:16.044
  • You really don't miss beingunable to turn on the TV,
  • 00:13:16.144 --> 00:13:18.246
  • drive a car, or go shopping.
  • 00:13:18.346 --> 00:13:21.616
  • It sounds like a relaxingday, doesn't it?
  • 00:13:21.716 --> 00:13:24.719
  • I mean, it sounds like justsitting around and eating a lot.
  • 00:13:24.819 --> 00:13:28.990
  • It sounds like Thanksgivingto me, once a week.
  • 00:13:29.090 --> 00:13:36.464
  • What's wrong with that?
  • 00:13:36.564 --> 00:13:38.499
  • What is wrong withresting one day a week?
  • 00:13:38.600 --> 00:13:41.502
  • So, number one, there arereasons God said to rest.
  • 00:13:41.603 --> 00:13:45.206
  • Here's number two.
  • 00:13:45.306 --> 00:13:46.241
  • There are consequenceswhen we don't rest.
  • 00:13:46.341 --> 00:13:49.344
  • There are consequenceswhen we don't rest.
  • 00:13:49.444 --> 00:13:51.646
  • Numbers 15:32, "Now whilethe children of Israel
  • 00:13:51.746 --> 00:13:54.916
  • were in the wilderness, theyfound a man",
  • 00:13:55.016 --> 00:13:57.151
  • now watch what they found himdo, "gathering sticks
  • 00:13:57.252 --> 00:14:01.823
  • on the Sabbath day".
  • 00:14:01.923 --> 00:14:03.691
  • They found a man gatheringsticks, not murdering someone,
  • 00:14:03.791 --> 00:14:07.462
  • gathering sticks.
  • 00:14:07.562 --> 00:14:09.831
  • "And those who found himgathering sticks brought
  • 00:14:09.931 --> 00:14:11.699
  • him to Moses and Aaron, andto all the congregation."
  • 00:14:11.799 --> 00:14:13.735
  • Now, this is kindof funny to me.
  • 00:14:13.835 --> 00:14:15.270
  • "They put him under guard."
  • 00:14:15.370 --> 00:14:18.406
  • Well, of course!
  • 00:14:18.506 --> 00:14:19.173
  • He was a stick gatherer!
  • 00:14:19.274 --> 00:14:23.444
  • Better hold a gun on him so hedoesn't gather any more sticks.
  • 00:14:23.544 --> 00:14:28.983
  • "Because it had not beenexplained what should be
  • 00:14:29.083 --> 00:14:30.685
  • done to him.
  • 00:14:30.785 --> 00:14:31.819
  • Then the Lord said to Moses,"The man must surely
  • 00:14:31.920 --> 00:14:36.891
  • be put to death, and all thecongregation shall stone
  • 00:14:36.991 --> 00:14:41.262
  • him with stonesoutside the camp".
  • 00:14:41.362 --> 00:14:44.933
  • So as the Lord commandedMoses, all the congregation
  • 00:14:45.033 --> 00:14:47.468
  • brought him outside the campand stoned him with stones,
  • 00:14:47.568 --> 00:14:49.938
  • and he died."
  • 00:14:50.038 --> 00:14:51.439
  • That's pretty severe forgathering sticks,
  • 00:14:51.539 --> 00:14:53.675
  • and the Lord said it.
  • 00:14:53.775 --> 00:14:54.909
  • Four, and I've heard fiveaccording to ceremonial things,
  • 00:14:55.009 --> 00:14:59.180
  • but four main thingsrequired death,
  • 00:14:59.280 --> 00:15:03.318
  • caused the death penalty in theOld Testament.
  • 00:15:03.418 --> 00:15:05.987
  • Murder, not keeping the Sabbath,adultery, and here's one,
  • 00:15:06.087 --> 00:15:17.832
  • rebellious children.
  • 00:15:17.932 --> 00:15:22.170
  • I'm telling you, the nexttime, you just tell them.
  • 00:15:22.270 --> 00:15:25.039
  • Listen, you'd be dead, pal, ifwe were in the Old Testament.
  • 00:15:25.139 --> 00:15:32.113
  • Murder, adultery, notkeeping the Sabbath,
  • 00:15:32.213 --> 00:15:34.816
  • and rebellious children.
  • 00:15:34.916 --> 00:15:36.150
  • Okay, but why would notkeeping the Sabbath be up there
  • 00:15:36.250 --> 00:15:38.353
  • with murder and adultery, andcontinued rebellion?
  • 00:15:38.453 --> 00:15:44.325
  • Okay, remember there'sa principle behind
  • 00:15:44.425 --> 00:15:46.027
  • each commandment, so let mejust ask you something.
  • 00:15:46.127 --> 00:15:50.631
  • Are you putting yourself todeath by not resting one
  • 00:15:50.732 --> 00:15:56.204
  • day a week?
  • 00:15:56.304 --> 00:15:58.906
  • Are you killing yourself?
  • 00:15:59.007 --> 00:16:03.644
  • There are consequences,remember?
  • 00:16:03.745 --> 00:16:05.313
  • 2 Chronicles 36:20, this iswhen they were taken
  • 00:16:05.413 --> 00:16:07.849
  • out of the land for 70 years.
  • 00:16:07.949 --> 00:16:10.451
  • "And those who escaped fromthe sword he carried away
  • 00:16:10.551 --> 00:16:12.487
  • to Babylon, where they becameservants to him and his sons
  • 00:16:12.587 --> 00:16:16.057
  • until the rule of thekingdom of Persia,
  • 00:16:16.157 --> 00:16:18.226
  • to fulfill the word of the Lordby the mouth of Jeremiah",
  • 00:16:18.326 --> 00:16:21.295
  • watch this, it's strange,"until the land had enjoyed
  • 00:16:21.396 --> 00:16:27.869
  • her Sabbaths."
  • 00:16:27.969 --> 00:16:30.338
  • "Until the land hadenjoyed", I didn't even know
  • 00:16:30.438 --> 00:16:33.775
  • a land could enjoy,"her Sabbaths.
  • 00:16:33.875 --> 00:16:36.711
  • As long as she lay desolate,she kept Sabbath,
  • 00:16:36.811 --> 00:16:39.147
  • to fulfill 70 years."
  • 00:16:39.247 --> 00:16:40.548
  • So, what happened here?
  • 00:16:40.648 --> 00:16:42.150
  • Every seventh year they weresupposed to let the land rest,
  • 00:16:42.250 --> 00:16:45.219
  • but theystopped doing it.
  • 00:16:45.319 --> 00:16:46.287
  • Israel stopped doing it.
  • 00:16:46.387 --> 00:16:47.588
  • And so, seven years went byand they still plowed the land
  • 00:16:47.688 --> 00:16:51.626
  • and planted the land.
  • 00:16:51.726 --> 00:16:52.960
  • In heaven, apparently Godhas a big chalkboard,
  • 00:16:53.061 --> 00:16:58.032
  • and He made a mark, and whenseven years went by, He put one.
  • 00:16:58.132 --> 00:17:02.403
  • Fourteen years, two.
  • 00:17:02.503 --> 00:17:04.205
  • Twenty-one, three.
  • 00:17:04.305 --> 00:17:05.540
  • Twenty-eight, four.
  • 00:17:05.640 --> 00:17:06.507
  • Thirty-five, five.
  • 00:17:06.607 --> 00:17:08.342
  • Okay, so for 70 years, 70Sabbaths, they do this,
  • 00:17:08.443 --> 00:17:12.113
  • but they did it more than 70years, because it was every
  • 00:17:12.213 --> 00:17:14.082
  • 7 years, so if you'remathematical you will get this.
  • 00:17:14.182 --> 00:17:17.285
  • They went 490 years notletting the land rest.
  • 00:17:17.385 --> 00:17:26.561
  • If you did something for 490years, would you begin
  • 00:17:26.661 --> 00:17:32.300
  • to think that you weregetting away with it?
  • 00:17:32.400 --> 00:17:38.206
  • You don't get away with it.
  • 00:17:38.306 --> 00:17:41.275
  • God took His children out of theland, and they were slaves
  • 00:17:41.375 --> 00:17:47.048
  • for 70 years, so that the landcould enjoy its Sabbaths.
  • 00:17:47.148 --> 00:18:00.361
  • If God is concerned aboutland, how much more
  • 00:18:00.461 --> 00:18:04.732
  • is He concerned about you?
  • 00:18:04.832 --> 00:18:07.068
  • There are consequences.
  • 00:18:07.168 --> 00:18:08.336
  • I'm telling you, some of youmay be dying quicker than you
  • 00:18:08.436 --> 00:18:10.371
  • want to, because you just won'treceive a gift!
  • 00:18:10.471 --> 00:18:15.276
  • God gives you agift, a day off.
  • 00:18:15.376 --> 00:18:18.045
  • This is not a bad gift!
  • 00:18:18.146 --> 00:18:20.348
  • It's a good gift.
  • 00:18:20.448 --> 00:18:21.816
  • And here's the third thing Iwant to tell you about
  • 00:18:21.916 --> 00:18:24.285
  • the principle of rest, there areblessings when you rest.
  • 00:18:24.385 --> 00:18:27.655
  • There are blessings!
  • 00:18:27.755 --> 00:18:29.023
  • Now, I want to show you aprinciple here, Mark 2:23.
  • 00:18:29.123 --> 00:18:32.660
  • "It happened that He",Jesus, "went through
  • 00:18:32.760 --> 00:18:34.428
  • the grainfields on the Sabbath,and as they went,
  • 00:18:34.529 --> 00:18:37.498
  • His disciples began to pluckthe heads of grain.
  • 00:18:37.598 --> 00:18:40.601
  • And the Pharisees said toHim, "Look, why do they
  • 00:18:40.701 --> 00:18:42.803
  • do what is not lawfulon the Sabbath"?
  • 00:18:42.904 --> 00:18:45.239
  • But He said to them, "Haveyou never read what David
  • 00:18:45.339 --> 00:18:47.008
  • did when he was in need andhungry, he and those with him,
  • 00:18:47.108 --> 00:18:49.844
  • how he went into thehouse of God in the days
  • 00:18:49.944 --> 00:18:51.946
  • of Abiathar, the high priest,and ate the showbread,
  • 00:18:52.046 --> 00:18:54.682
  • which is not lawful to eatexcept for the priests,
  • 00:18:54.782 --> 00:18:57.151
  • and also gave some to thosewho were with him?"
  • 00:18:57.251 --> 00:18:59.587
  • And He", Jesus, "said to them,"The Sabbath was made for man,
  • 00:18:59.687 --> 00:19:05.092
  • and notman for the Sabbath.
  • 00:19:05.193 --> 00:19:07.328
  • Therefore, the Son of Man isalso the Lord of the Sabbath."
  • 00:19:07.428 --> 00:19:09.397
  • Okay, so why did Iread that to you?
  • 00:19:09.497 --> 00:19:12.066
  • Because I'm trying to tell youthis isn't legalistic with God.
  • 00:19:12.166 --> 00:19:15.603
  • There's Jesus, andhere's what He's saying.
  • 00:19:15.703 --> 00:19:18.272
  • He's saying, listen, wedidn't make man for the Sabbath.
  • 00:19:18.372 --> 00:19:22.076
  • We didn't make youto serve the Sabbath.
  • 00:19:22.176 --> 00:19:24.879
  • We made the Sabbathto serve you.
  • 00:19:24.979 --> 00:19:27.615
  • Do you realize that Godcould have had a six day week?
  • 00:19:27.715 --> 00:19:31.319
  • He's the one that came upwith a seven day week,
  • 00:19:31.419 --> 00:19:34.222
  • and one of them asa day of rest.
  • 00:19:34.322 --> 00:19:36.924
  • So, the Sabbathis a gift to you.
  • 00:19:37.024 --> 00:19:39.860
  • Okay, here's an oldJewish saying I love.
  • 00:19:39.961 --> 00:19:41.829
  • More than Israel has keptShabbat,
  • 00:19:41.929 --> 00:19:45.299
  • Shabbat has kept Israel.
  • 00:19:45.399 --> 00:19:48.970
  • Just resting one day a week.
  • 00:19:49.070 --> 00:19:50.137
  • Now for me, Sabbath is on aSaturday, and again,
  • 00:19:50.238 --> 00:19:55.476
  • I think it's a principle, so itmay not be the same day
  • 00:19:55.576 --> 00:19:58.813
  • for you which is the endof your week.
  • 00:19:58.913 --> 00:20:00.815
  • For me, you may not notice,I work on Saturdays.
  • 00:20:00.915 --> 00:20:08.823
  • Praise God!
  • 00:20:08.923 --> 00:20:09.790
  • So, there's anotherday that I rest.
  • 00:20:09.890 --> 00:20:13.494
  • Now, here's the number onequestion that I get asked
  • 00:20:13.594 --> 00:20:15.930
  • when I teach people onSabbath, and I teach pastors
  • 00:20:16.030 --> 00:20:18.165
  • at pastors' conferencesall the time.
  • 00:20:18.266 --> 00:20:20.167
  • Number one question, what doyou do on your day off,
  • 00:20:20.268 --> 00:20:23.738
  • or what do you doon your Sabbath?
  • 00:20:23.838 --> 00:20:25.873
  • And this is what I say.
  • 00:20:25.973 --> 00:20:27.074
  • That's the wrong question.
  • 00:20:27.174 --> 00:20:30.044
  • The question is not what doI do, the question
  • 00:20:30.144 --> 00:20:34.815
  • is what do I not do.
  • 00:20:34.915 --> 00:20:38.352
  • I don't do anythingassociated with work.
  • 00:20:38.452 --> 00:20:42.490
  • I don't write messages.
  • 00:20:42.590 --> 00:20:44.558
  • I don't write books.
  • 00:20:44.659 --> 00:20:46.394
  • I don't answer e-mails.
  • 00:20:46.494 --> 00:20:48.529
  • So, I learned atthis the hard way.
  • 00:20:48.629 --> 00:20:50.698
  • Years ago, I wasgoing real strongly.
  • 00:20:50.798 --> 00:20:53.334
  • I wasn't understandingthis principle.
  • 00:20:53.434 --> 00:20:56.003
  • I had just gotten back froma trip for Life Outreach,
  • 00:20:56.103 --> 00:20:59.407
  • where I'm visiting childrenthat are starving to death.
  • 00:20:59.507 --> 00:21:01.809
  • I'm looking into a camera,communicating, so that people
  • 00:21:01.909 --> 00:21:03.911
  • will help feed them,and drill water wells,
  • 00:21:04.011 --> 00:21:06.147
  • and things like that.
  • 00:21:06.247 --> 00:21:07.615
  • I got back, I wasabsolutely exhausted.
  • 00:21:07.715 --> 00:21:09.450
  • I'd had about a month of that,things like, just very busy.
  • 00:21:09.550 --> 00:21:13.321
  • And, I took a shower.
  • 00:21:13.421 --> 00:21:15.189
  • I was going to get dressedto go to the office.
  • 00:21:15.289 --> 00:21:16.857
  • I walked in and I'll justtell you what happened.
  • 00:21:16.957 --> 00:21:19.694
  • I opened myunderwear drawer.
  • 00:21:19.794 --> 00:21:21.696
  • There was one pair ofunderwear left, and I thought,
  • 00:21:21.796 --> 00:21:30.504
  • what am Igoing to wear tomorrow?
  • 00:21:30.604 --> 00:21:42.717
  • I'm not going to haveany underwear tomorrow.
  • 00:21:42.817 --> 00:21:47.088
  • Pastors shouldwear underwear!
  • 00:21:47.188 --> 00:21:52.026
  • And I could notthink, I can wash.
  • 00:21:52.126 --> 00:21:55.796
  • My mind was so tired!
  • 00:21:55.896 --> 00:21:57.498
  • I can go to Walmart andget 14 pair for $1.97.
  • 00:21:57.598 --> 00:22:04.772
  • I could not think.
  • 00:22:04.872 --> 00:22:06.707
  • I was so tired, Iwas so exhausted!
  • 00:22:06.807 --> 00:22:08.943
  • Anybody ever been there?
  • 00:22:09.043 --> 00:22:10.378
  • I was just exhausted!
  • 00:22:10.478 --> 00:22:12.646
  • Put the underwear on, openedthe sock drawer, had no socks.
  • 00:22:12.747 --> 00:22:17.118
  • I sat down on the floor inmy underwear and started crying.
  • 00:22:17.218 --> 00:22:23.924
  • And now, while I wascrying, I had this thought.
  • 00:22:24.024 --> 00:22:26.727
  • You're losing it!
  • 00:22:26.827 --> 00:22:29.029
  • You're losing your mind!
  • 00:22:29.130 --> 00:22:30.398
  • You're crying over socks!
  • 00:22:30.498 --> 00:22:33.367
  • So, I went to lunch that daywith Pastor Tom Lane,
  • 00:22:33.467 --> 00:22:35.603
  • and I told him, Pastor Tom,I'm losing my mind.
  • 00:22:35.703 --> 00:22:39.140
  • So, I told himwhat happened.
  • 00:22:39.240 --> 00:22:40.374
  • He said, you're not losingyour mind, you're exhausted.
  • 00:22:40.474 --> 00:22:43.677
  • Anyone would feel this wayif they kept your schedule.
  • 00:22:43.778 --> 00:22:47.882
  • So, I started talking tothe elders and praying.
  • 00:22:47.982 --> 00:22:49.583
  • We started getting veryrigid about my time off,
  • 00:22:49.683 --> 00:22:53.387
  • scheduling time off, andthat's when we came up with
  • 00:22:53.487 --> 00:22:55.356
  • our sabbatical policy, whereall of our pastors
  • 00:22:55.456 --> 00:22:58.325
  • get a sabbatical everyfive to seven years.
  • 00:22:58.426 --> 00:23:00.694
  • So, that was my fifth year.
  • 00:23:00.795 --> 00:23:02.696
  • So, Debbie and Iwent on sabbatical.
  • 00:23:02.797 --> 00:23:04.231
  • The elders gave us eightweeks sabbatical,
  • 00:23:04.331 --> 00:23:07.701
  • because it's just not yourbody that needs rest.
  • 00:23:07.802 --> 00:23:09.503
  • When you're creating contentthat goes in books and things,
  • 00:23:09.603 --> 00:23:12.706
  • your mind has to rest.
  • 00:23:12.807 --> 00:23:14.275
  • All of us have to rest.
  • 00:23:14.375 --> 00:23:15.876
  • So, I took this time.
  • 00:23:15.976 --> 00:23:17.478
  • Now, 8 times 7 is 56 days.
  • 00:23:17.578 --> 00:23:19.780
  • I'm telling you thatbecause something happened.
  • 00:23:19.880 --> 00:23:21.348
  • On the 53rd day, I wassitting there thinking
  • 00:23:21.449 --> 00:23:26.954
  • I woke up feelingnormal again.
  • 00:23:27.054 --> 00:23:31.125
  • I felt normal.
  • 00:23:31.225 --> 00:23:32.326
  • And I said, Lord, Ifeel normal again!
  • 00:23:32.426 --> 00:23:36.997
  • I haven't felt normal infive years,
  • 00:23:37.097 --> 00:23:38.566
  • since I started the church, andthat was our five year time.
  • 00:23:38.666 --> 00:23:42.169
  • I said, I haven'tfelt normal.
  • 00:23:42.269 --> 00:23:43.170
  • I feel normal!
  • 00:23:43.270 --> 00:23:44.939
  • And the Lord said tome, what day is it?
  • 00:23:45.039 --> 00:23:47.942
  • And because I like numbers,I said it's the 53rd day
  • 00:23:48.042 --> 00:23:51.212
  • out of 56.
  • 00:23:51.312 --> 00:23:52.279
  • I knew I only had a fewdays left, you know?
  • 00:23:52.379 --> 00:23:54.281
  • I said, it's the 53rd day.
  • 00:23:54.381 --> 00:23:57.351
  • And just like that, He saidto me,
  • 00:23:57.451 --> 00:23:58.819
  • you owed one year of Sabbaths.
  • 00:23:58.919 --> 00:24:04.124
  • You owed 52 days.
  • 00:24:04.225 --> 00:24:07.161
  • And I said, Lord, youmean I owed you 52 days?
  • 00:24:07.261 --> 00:24:11.098
  • And the Lord said,no, no, no, no, no.
  • 00:24:11.198 --> 00:24:12.633
  • You didn't owe Me 52 days,you owe you 52 days.
  • 00:24:12.733 --> 00:24:21.008
  • And He said, don't ever goin debt again with your time
  • 00:24:21.108 --> 00:24:26.247
  • and with your energy.
  • 00:24:26.347 --> 00:24:28.816
  • Listen, God givesyou a day off!
  • 00:24:28.916 --> 00:24:32.820
  • If you don't take it, theroot is because you
  • 00:24:32.920 --> 00:24:37.391
  • don't trust Him.
  • 00:24:37.491 --> 00:24:39.493
  • That's the root.
  • 00:24:39.593 --> 00:24:40.794
  • It's the only reason youwould work seven days a week.
  • 00:24:40.895 --> 00:24:44.465
  • Isn't this agreat principle?
  • 00:24:45.766 --> 00:24:47.868
  • It's a principle through"God's Top Ten",
  • 00:24:47.968 --> 00:24:51.005
  • but it's also a blessing.
  • 00:24:51.105 --> 00:24:53.407
  • It's a gift from God to getto rest one day a week.
  • 00:24:53.507 --> 00:24:57.912
  • Now if you're like I am,probably if you've heard
  • 00:24:58.012 --> 00:25:00.748
  • this today for the firsttime, you got convicted about
  • 00:25:00.848 --> 00:25:04.518
  • working seven days a week, notletting your mind rest.
  • 00:25:04.618 --> 00:25:08.055
  • I'm asking you, dosomething about it.
  • 00:25:08.155 --> 00:25:10.190
  • Start this week.
  • 00:25:10.291 --> 00:25:11.926
  • Take a day off.
  • 00:25:12.026 --> 00:25:14.562

  • God really loves you and wantsto have a closer relationship
  • 00:25:28.275 --> 00:25:30.911
  • with you, however, when we thinkof the ten commandments,
  • 00:25:31.011 --> 00:25:33.914
  • many of us think of a list ofrules telling us what not to do.
  • 00:25:34.014 --> 00:25:37.351
  • But the truth is, God designedthe ten commandments as a way
  • 00:25:37.451 --> 00:25:40.721
  • for us to have a relationshipwith Him.
  • 00:25:40.821 --> 00:25:43.557

  • a principle that draws us into adeeper relationship with Him.
