A Law of Blessings

I was a Texas bank lender some years ago,

an enjoyed and prosperous forte;

but, when Holy Spirit convinced me of God’s Truth,

to Him “No” wasn’t what I would say.

 

He’d taught me ev’ry word about the fourth Precept,

showing Sabbath as the seventh day.

“It is Sunday,” man has taught; yet it’s Saturday,

and of no other day did Christ say.

 

What shall I do, I mused, for I work Saturdays,

I thought in self-commiseration.

Still, Holy Spirit was firm that it be obeyed;

so, six weeks was my resignation.

 

I didn’t know then why God would put me in law,

where fair’s not a consideration;

but, that was my next two valued arrangements

and teaching the next resignation;

 

For then I moved to Washington where jobs came, too;

each one allowing Sabbath for me.

Why? Because I told them my pref’rence before hired:

“not ashamed” of God’s whole Word in me.

 

Soon, I learned that Sabbath is a Law of blessings:

though not yet job hunting, jobs found me!

“Cursed are those who don’t obey; blessed are they who do.”

Each day, see blessings fall upon me.

Did not Paul say, “Do not fall short of Christ’s promise

by not obeying God’s Sabbath rest?”

Christ’s gospel was preached to both the Jews and Gentiles,

but some lacked faith and failed our Lord’s test.

 

“Those of us who believe do obey God’s fourth Law,

who first spoke it in Genesis Two,

making holy the seventh day for all to rest;

then, Psalm Ninety-Five speaks His wrath true.

 

“Those who do not obey will reap God’s deadly ire;

judged as unbelievers, they will pay.

Father set a specific time of rest for all,

and His Son spoke of no other day.

 

“Hence, the seventh one is for a righteous people:

a break from their work, just as God rests,

not one setting an example of unbelief.

So, desire to pass these easy tests.

 

“God discerns thoughts and hearts and judges compliance.

Let your faith witness be true and strong,

that you may come boldly before the throne of grace

to obtain mercy for all past wrongs.

 

“God is quick to command, His Word as powerful,

like a two-edged sword but much sharper.

Know that He can slay both your body and spirit:

trust, obey, and be not a carper.”

*Note: in other Bible versions v.8 names a prophet instead of Jesus,and in some the word ‘seventh’ has been twice deleted in v.4— such changes and deletions distort God’s  truth. See also: Exodus 20:8-11; Ezekiel 20:12,19-20; Luke 4:14-16; Acts 13:42,44; 17:2; Romans 3:23-25
