Syndicated, I was feeling the same as what you've shared here. I think we're all guilty from time to time of segregating ourselves from one another due to the boundaries our minds draw in the sand as to who we accept and who we don't. I've stated this before, but Truth needs no defense. It doesn't come back void, it has purpose and plan. We see it, we receive it, we release it into others. It's not to be filtered or dissected or defended. It's actually a trigger that releases us from the bondages of our religious selves.
There was a question as to how did our ancestors ever survive with their traditional understanding of life. For me, it all has to do with what "day" they/we are walking in. There are 7 total, the first 6 or days of labor, it is the 7th that is so different from the previous 6. The church has been walking through a 6-day mentality for hundreds and even thousands (6 to be exact) of years. But the days of labor are over and now, the Sabbath is revealing the truth that the days of labor could not see.
The church is still walking in that "labor" mentality and that is the veil that keeps them from seeing the true nature and power of Christ. The good news is, they will see it eventually. There is no end to the Sabbath. There is no evening and morning to confine it to any limited timeline. Did you notice that in Genesis? The previous 6 days all had dividing lines between them. "It was evening, it was morning . . .but when it came to the Sabbath, God rested from ALL his labor and there was no more evening and morning. God's rest is eternal and this world with all it's religious inhabitants are being exposed to this day as we speak . . .they'll come around eventually.
For the time being, they are still needed due to the fact that these things come by way of progression. I can't enter into the holy of holies until I first experience the outer court and holy place. It's all through spiritual order and maturity that we walk in the finished works of the cross.
