After creating the heavens 🌌 the earth 🌏 and everything in it in 6 days, God rested on the 7th day.
In the Bible, we understand that this day is dedicated to God, in memory of creation.
In our calendar, we generally recognize that there are exactly 7 days in 1 week.
Sunday is officially the first day. Saturday is always the 7th day.
Saturday is the holy day of the God of the Bible.
It is a day considered out of time and it is also out of daily work for the Jews. But for us who believe in Jesus Christ, it is like "The Day of the Lord".
Jews perceive it as the memorial of Creation (the seventh day of Genesis), and as a sacred day of rest (Shabbat).
It is observed between sunset on Friday and that of Saturday according to the biblical method of counting the days. The Sabbath is also observed by some Christians: Messianic Jewish Christians, the Adventist Church, the Church of God, etc...
In the Bible, this day (Sabbath) is a term repeated in the Old Testament, and in some passages of the New Testament. Actually, it is the 4th of the Ten Commandments given by God to Moses in the 🌵 desert. For the culture of Israel and according to the law, it is also a day of rest.
This goes directly to creation. The Bible condemns the disregard of the Sabbath. It is a representation of the reign of Christ promised for the righteous at the first resurrection.
It's a day of rest, hope, and peace. Every Christians shall know this and they shall keep in mind that it is also a day to glorify the Real God forever.
