Overwhelmed? Need a day off... a break? Maybe it's time to learn the truth about the Sabbath.
Everyone, it seems, lives his or her life at a breakneck pace, constantly rushing here and there to get everything done. Technological advances that once promised more leisure time now seem only to push us further behind, making it ever more difficult to catch up.
So we frantically scramble. We feel out of touch—out of touch with our spouse, out of touch with our families, out of touch with the world around us and, perhaps most of all, out of touch with God. Is there a way to get back in touch?
In the Bible, God gives us a solution written within the Ten Commandments. It's a commandment that gives us time for a welcome, refreshing rest from our weekly labors, a time during which we must no longer be absorbed in our ordinary daily cares and concerns—a time for spiritual rejuvenation.
Inside the ebook, "Sunset to Sunset: God's Sabbath Rest", you will read why God commanded a day of rest and the purpose for it. You will discover the answers to which day is the Sabbath, why the Sabbath is relevant for all of us today and why this day of rest makes sense in today's world. Join us for a journey through the Bible to discover the importance of God's Sabbath rest.

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:
"God, Creator of the Sabbath, determines when the day begins and ends, and it was observed from sunset to sunset throughout the Bible. His Sabbath begins Friday evening at sunset and ends Saturday evening at sunset."
"Jesus Himself clearly denied that He intended to change or abolish the Sabbath or any part of God’s law. “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets,” He said. “I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17)."
"Many who argue that the Sabbath was abolished in the New Testament point to the apostle Paul’s writings to justify their view. But is this opinion correct? They commonly cite three passages to support that claim—Romans 14:5-6, Colossians 2:16-17 and Galatians 4:9-10."
"Here we see God’s true intent for the Sabbath: It is part of a proper, loving relationship with Him. It is a matter of honoring God."
God's Sabbath Rest is an eye opening book that brings the Sabbath out of the shadows and into the light. What a blessing it is to have such information available for those who would like to learn more about the Sabbath in history and in the future.
Since I was a small child, I was taught to rest on the sabbath and keep holy yet did not fully understand what this really meant. If felt more like a command and an obligation rather than a happy choice. Still it did make sense to me SOME and I did my best to do this over the years. Then came this superb book because not only is it like you are taking a great mini course, it is like the teachers/pastors are guiding you in how to keep the Sabbath holy, why would you WANT to do this, how to do this and best of all, scriptures in the Old Testament and in the New Testament teaching about the Sabbath day as a day of rest.
Love the part in the book where Hebrews 4:3-11 is mentioned because this explains how resting on the very importance of this. This was so meaningful to me that I went to biblegateway.com and found those scriptures and saved them in a bookmark in my computer! When I need to rest spiritually and physically, this is so encouraging!
