The number 7 appears throughout the Bible – 735 times to be exact and over 50 times just in the book of Revelation.But what significance does this number have and what should Christians take away from its use in the Bible?
To maintain this discipline, Hahn encouraged people to start slowly, gradually drawing themselves into this rhythm of work and rest.Hahn explained that the day serves as a "block of time during the week to steer yourself toward God." "The point of Sabbath is not restriction, but rather refreshment," the pastor said."Good work and good rest lead to a good walk with God." This does not necessarily mean that Christians need to sit around all day doing nothing, but rather they can find activities that allow them to look inward and contemplate their relationship with God, such as gardening.In all of scripture, the seventh day of the week, the Sabbath, is the only day which has been declared by God Himself to be blessed, sanctified (set aside for a holy purpose), in memorial to His creation.We are again reminded to observe the seventh day Sabbath in the commandments given at Sinai: Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
