SHABATH - Are We to Go Anywhere?
The point, principle, or objective of “yom Shabath” (Sabbath day) is to rest.
The word “Shabath” means to stop, cease, or be at rest.
“Worship” is obedience (Hebrew ABAD), not at all what most think it is.
Many are programmed to think worship is showing up in an assembly once a
and participating in a “liturgy” - a program or arrangement invented by men.
Exodus / Shemoth 16:29 “See, because Yahuah has given you the Shabath,
therefore He is giving you bread for two days on the sixth day. Let each one stay
in his place,
do not let anyone go out of his place on the seventh day.”
Act 1:12 "Then they went back to Yerushalayim from the Mount of Olives, which is
near Yerushalayim, a Shabath day’s journey."
It's not the 1st day of the week, it’s the 7th day - see Hebrews 4.
The general answer to this question is "no" - because we are never ordered to go
anywhere on yom Shabath. However, for those wanting to go further along in a
knowledge of Torah, the books of Mosheh were read in the assemblies every
Shabath (Acts 15:21), but attendance was never compulsory. This was especially
beneficial for gentiles turning to Yahuah, and the reading schedule we see today
enables someone to hear what Yahuah expects of them. Today we can read from
our own copy of Scripture, but in early times a scroll of Scripture was a rare item
to find. Such attendance would not have required a person to venture beyond a
"Shabath distance", nor would there be any collecting of mammon, or conducting
business. The offerings of food, animals, or other commodities would be collected
on the first day of the week, and used for the support of the poor, widows,

fatherless, and the priesthood. The dragon and false prophet promote a change in
Torah (see Danial 7:25), and have led most to think “Sun-day” is the correct day.
Yahuah blessed the 7th day, and He does not change. Traditions change, and the
dragon (serpent) only needs to give an excuse and everyone follows him, rather
than obey the Word of Yahuah. There's ample evidence that Yahusha's custom
was to go to the assemblies on Shabath, in fact most other days as well you would
find Him meeting to teach those who were hungry. When He was in Yerushalayim,
He would stand in the chambers of the Mishkan and teach openly. I've never
heard of anyone that wanted isolation, in fact the majority of those we speak with
are crying out to find out where other believers are in their area. The only point
being addressed here is that there is not a compulsory meeting on yom Shabath parents could cease work, and rest, and take time to spend more time with their
children. The parents were (and are) to teach their children Torah, and the day-off
from work makes this possible. Here is the directive to teach our children: Dt /
Debarim 6:7-9: ". . . and you shall impress them upon your children, and shall
speak of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and
when you lie down, and when you rise up, and shall bind them as a sign on your
hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them
on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." BYNV
