What happens on the Sabbath??

Ok - so now you know the 4th Commandment and that is must be still obeyed as per Jesus.
When is the Sabbath day according to Scripture:
Well there is many areas of the book that I found this, one that sticks to mind is Lev 23:32 It shall be to you a sabbath of rest, and you shall humble your souls. In the ninth of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall keep your sabbath.
This was specific to a old celebration which fell on a Sabbath (Saturday). So Sundown Friday to Sundown Sabbath(saturday) is classed as a Sabbath day.
What Can you / Cant you do:
Well there are a few things..... you shall not work, or inflict work upon anyone else...
Exo 20:8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Exo 20:9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work.
Exo 20:10 But the seventh day is the Sabbath of Jehovah your God. You shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger within your gates.
Exo 20:11 For in six days Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore Jehovah blessed the Sabbath day, and sanctified it.

This is a day of rest / a day of family / a day of worship / a day to walk with the lord and glorify him for all the works he has done. (Day 1 - 6) and here and now.... You may go to church, you may go to the beach and look at the surroundings.... you just must not work / cook / clean etc... Rest and enjoy your blessed day!

After Sundown on Sabbath - you may carry on doing your day to day chores like the rest of the week....

Some people may have many reasons to get confused with regards to Sundown to Sundown....what if i live when the sun shines 90% of the day or it is night all day for 6months etc.... then it goes without saying that it up to you and your time keeping that you can judge 24hours from an average sundown time.... lets say in South Africa it is sundown at roughly 18:00pm now .... so i would say 24 hours from there..... that would be a full Sabbath Day.....
To be 100% accurate is not the objective is what comes from the heart and to be obedient to the lord and worship him for his glory, mercy and undying Love.!! Enjoy the Sabbath - God Gave it to you!.
