Does God Still Expect the Sabbath Day to Be Remembered? 🤔
This master class will cover the Sabbath Day as found in the fourth commandment. It will trace its history all the way from creation through the history of Israel into New Testament times. It will also look at the benefits for Christians today.

ABOUT CAMI OETMAN
Ten years ago, Cami Oetman had a real encounter with God that would change her life forever. She was a successful entrepreneur at the time, and the transition wasn’t easy. However, the truth Cami will share in this series was so compelling that she knew every human being in the world should experience the love of Jesus as she had.

Humans are the only created beings that can discern right from wrong, and the part of our brain that makes those choices is our prefrontal cortex, which sits behind our foreheads. When we choose to “remember the Sabbath day” as it states in the fourth of the 10 Commandments, we are choosing to be « sealed » by God. The Sabbath exists to remind us of who God is. He is the Creator of heaven and earth.
God said through the prophet Ezekiel: “I gave them my Sabbaths as a sign between us, so they would know that I the Lord made them holy” (Ezekiel 20:12). God wants us to remember that He is our Creator and Redeemer.
God created humans on the sixth day of creation, Friday. The very next day—Sabbath—He rested, b
