So it’s the last day of school, and I have to confess, I am not getting any younger.
This is because April 21st is a Sunday, also known as a “holic-day.” This is a day we are encouraged to “re-connect” with our church communities and focus on our own personal spiritual growth. It is also the day we celebrate the end of the school year.
It’s not just a day off. It is a day when we reflect on what we have learned and how we want to grow. The end of the school year is celebrated in many ways, but one of the most important is the end of the Sabbath.
In a Christian church there are six “wedding feasts”, which are celebrations of faith and the life of Christ. Each wedding feast culminates in the end of the day when Jesus comes to anoint the new bride and groom. There are many feasts in the church calendar, but we celebrate April 21st. April 21st is the church’s birthday.
April 21st is the birthday of Jesus Christ and hence commemorates the end of his life. That’s probably a coincidence, but we also celebrate the beginning of the Sabbath on that same date. It’s a day of rest and reflection, and we believe the Sabbath reflects Jesus’ life on earth. And in this case, Jesus was born on the same day as the Sabbath was set. In the beginning of creation when God created the heavens and the earth, he also set the Sabbath.
So, we might as well go ahead and celebrate Jesus birth on the same day as the Sabbath was set. Because Jesus was born on the same day as Sabbath, it makes sense that Jesus would be the Sabbath’s first born. Jesus was born on Saturday, the day the Sabbath was set. The Sabbath was broken on Saturday, the day Jesus was born.
The Sabbath was set on Saturday, the day Jesus was born. We’ve all been there. The Sabbath? That’s like saying, “If you could just get in your car and go to work on Monday, you’d get paid for it.
Of course Jesus was born on Saturday, the day Sabbath was set. The Sabbath was broken on Sunday, the day Jesus was born. The Sabbath was set on Friday, the day Jesus was born. The Sabbath was set on Saturday, the day Jesus was born. The Sabbath Was broken on Friday, the day Jesus was born. The Sabbath Was set on Friday, the day Jesus was born. The Sabbath Was set on Friday, the day Jesus Was born.
The end of the night was a mystery, but a lot of the night was a mystery. Most night was a mystery. The mystery was that the Lord had chosen to come to save us and to make us all come to Him in Him and to redeem us from all the evil and sickness of the world.
The Sabbath was a day set aside specifically for the worship of God. It was a day when it was illegal to work, eat, drink, give away, or make any other kind of payment. It was also a day when God’s presence was most certainly not just a day thing. God always gave up on the day of the week. The Sabbath was a day to rest and relax.
