Do you see how the Hebrew words for “seven” & “Sabbath” are almost exactly the same? When Hebrew words share two of three of the same root letters, they are understood to be sister words. Many times the words have similar meanings, or in this case, compliment each other. As the Sabbath is the seventh day, for instance. Take a look at the root word in Strong’s entry for “seven”:
So when we set apart our Father’s day, as He also set it apart, we are swearing allegiance to Him! We are confirming our oath to Him and His Son, who also kept His oath perfectly!
Here is the Strong’s entry for Sabbath:
On the seventh day we cease working, as Yeshua did, putting down our projects. We allow ourselves and even others to rest by not buying or selling. It is our sacred time with our Father and Yeshua. 🙏
If you would like to go even deeper, tying these concepts even tighter, take the two letters that differ in each word. We have an ayin (ע) and a tav (ת). If you put those two letters together it spells the Hebrew word for “time”. Here is the Strong’s entry for עת:
Do you notice in the above screenshot where it says “Root Word (Etymology) from עד (H5703)? If we take a look at עד, where עת comes from, we get this entry:
Hebrew is mind-boggling and it is no wonder that it is the holy, pure language that created the world!
May you be found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. 💗 And a Shabbat full of shalom to you! (Mental note: Next post should explain “shalom” for those who are craving it, not even knowing you are!) 😘
