In 2003 Manoj Bhargava's company, Living Essentials LLC, launched a product called "5-Hour Energy". By 2012, retail sales had grown to an estimated $1 billion dollares anually. Why did this little bottle of $2.99 pick-me-up become some popular? It promised to give you energy when you are physically exhausted. We may question the truth claims of their advertisements but the reality is we are more tired than ever, more overworked, more stressed out than at any time in recent American history. God has provided something better than five hour enegery, He has provied a 24 hour rest that fuels the other 144 hours of your week. Despite the amazing claims the Bible makes about the Shabbat rest some people still don't think it is for them today. In this message, we will see how the Shabbas rest is as much for us today as it was for Yeshua an d his disciples back then.

Notes & Transcripts | Handout
Some people really struggled with the message because they wanted me to tow a hard line either for a Sunday Shabbat or Saturday Shabbat. I heard that chatter that I am terribly inconsistent. I am not upset with that chatter, really it is quiet flattering.
Why is it flattering. Two reasons. First, I like to think that I am about as consistent as Yeshua who refuses a rich young ruler entrance into the kingdom of God who basically has kept God's law but yet allows a convicted criminal dying on a Roman excecution stake entrance into the kingdom. So, yes, about the same level of consistency and unpredictability as Yeshua. Secondly, Jewish hermeuntics influence my interpretation and applicaiton of the Scritpures.
