With the world in chaos, I thought the following statement from a book titled, "The Sabbath" would be worth sharing.
The meaning of the Sabbath is to celebrate time rather than space. Six days a week we live under the tyranny of things of space; on the Sabbath we try to become attuned to holiness in time. It is a day on which we are called upon to share in what is eternal in time, to turn from the results of creation to the mystery of creation; from the world of creation to the creation of the world.

Luke 16:22 - 25 #kjv
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in HELL he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
"I know the blasphemy of them which say (((they))) are Jews [Judah's bloodline], & are not, but are the synagogue of Satan." (Rev 2:9) "Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children [genetically from Jacob/Israel tribes], ye would do the works of Abraham. Ye are of your father the devil [Canaanite hybrids, through Esau at best], & the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, & abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, & the father of it." (John 8:39 & 8:44) "Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated." (Rom 9:13) "Esau [who is Edom according to Genesis 36] was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite [Canaan bloodline; fallen angel hybrids through Ham], & Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite: Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac & to Rebekah." (Gen 26:34-35; cross-referenced with Genesis 36:2) "The Hittites, & the Amorites, & the Perizzites, & the Hivites, & the Jebusites, were not of Israel [not Jacob's bloodline]." (2 Chr 8:7) "Thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, & the Amorites, the Canaanites, & the Perizzites, the Hivites, & the Jebusites; as the LORD [YHWH / Yahweh; not Lord / Adonai / Ba'al) thy God hath commanded thee: That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the LORD your God." (Deu 20:17-18) "The people of Israel, & the priests, & the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, & the Amorites. For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, & for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes & rulers hath been chief in this trespass." (Ezra 9:1-2)
