Is the Sabbath
12 hours only or the whole circuit ("24-hour" day)?
This is from a whole circuit persuasion, morning to
It was said,
"Yahuah has no communion with darkness
except when He commanded which is Passover."
In a spiritual sense, yes, but
how many times has Yahuah visited in the night?
You have examined my heart; You have
visited me in the night; You have tried me – You find
I have not schemed; My mouth would not transgress.
“I was looking in the night visions
and saw One like the Son of Enosh, coming with the
clouds of the heavens! And He came to the Ancient of
Days, and they brought Him near before Him.
And the Master spoke to Sha’ul in the
night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and
do not be silent,
because I am with you, and no one

Was it dark?
Evil works are likened to
darkness and night but we must be true to context.
And we must take into context that the darkness that
is referred to as night is not evil as the previous
There is scripture that suggest
that the Sabbath also includes the night...
And Elohim SAW ALL that He had made,
and see, it was VERY GOOD. And there came to be
evening and there came to be morning, the sixth day.
- Was darkness/night part
of what Elohim saw?
- Was it very good?
- Did the 6th day end at
- Did it end at the 7th day
- Did evening come after He
ended His work?
- Is this not the natural
occurence of a work day?
Ecc 11:6 Sow your seed in the morning, and
until evening do not let your hand rest; since you do
not know which prosper, this or that, or whether both
alike are good.
Psa 104:23 Man goes out to his work, And to his
labour, till evening.
Jdg 19:16 But see, an old
man came in from his work in the field at evening,
Even the parable of the eleventh
Mat 20:1 “For the reign of the heavens is like
a man, a householder who went out early in the morning
to hire workers for his vineyard.
Mat 20:6 “And about the eleventh hour, having
gone out, he found others standing idle, and said to
them, ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?’
Mat 20:7 “They said to him, ‘Because no one
hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You too go into the
vineyard, and whatever is right you shall receive.’
Mat 20:8 “And when evening came, the master of
the vineyard said to his manager, ‘Call the workers
and pay them their wages, beginning with the last to

Mat 20:12 saying, ‘These last have worked only
one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne
the burden and the heat of the day.’
Very important to consider here.
Is it mandatory that our work must cease at evening?
Joh 11:9 Yahusha answered, “Are there not
twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day,
he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this
Again, we have
to go back to context. Yahusha is speaking of
the twelve hours of the day that are measured by the
sun in the sky. But the word 'day' is not limited to
only twelve hours..
From an unused root meaning to be
hot; a day (as the warm hours), whether literally
(from sunrise to sunset, OR>>> from one
sunset to the next), or figuratively (A SPACE OF
TIME DEFINED BY AN ASSOCIATED TERM), (often used
adverbially): - age, + always, + chronicles,
continually (-ance), daily, ([birth-], each, to)

In our understanding- (from sunrise to

Gen 1:3 And Elohim said, “Let
light come to be,” and light came to be.
Gen 1:4 And Elohim saw the light, that it was
good. And Elohim separated the light from the
Gen 1:5 And Elohim called the light ‘day’ and
the darkness He called ‘night.’ And there came to be
evening and there came to be morning, THE FIRST DAY.
So we can see
that all the way up to "there came to be morning"
was considered the first day.
Exo 20:9 “Six days you labour, and shall
do all your work,
This is very
important to consider if our reasoning is that the
Sabbath is only the 12 hours. In other words,
if we make firm the Sabbath is only to be observed
for 12 hours, than that should also apply to the
work day as well.
Num 19:11 ‘He who touches the
dead of any human being is unclean for seven days.
definition of the word 'day' is found in Gen 1:5
- "And Elohim called the light ‘day’"
But the context
of the word 'days' in Num 19:11 includes the
nights. Otherwise, one would have to claim
they are only unclean during the day light
hours. Is that proper context?
Therefore, when Yahusha said:
Joh 11:9 Yahusha answered, “Are there not twelve hours
in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not
stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
Joh 11:10 “But if anyone walks in the night,
he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”
We need to look
at the associated terms: "hours", "walks in
the day" and "walks in the night" then clearly
we can see the context shows us the strictest
definition of the word day = light.
( - "And
Elohim called the light ‘day’" - "are there
not 12 hours in the day" )
When someone says, “Yahusha
said,” we need to remember context because
if we only apply the strictest definition to the
word 'day' (12 hours only) we will run into
problems which we will discuss later.
Continuing on to the Seventh
Thus the heavens and
the earth were completed, and all their array.
And on the seventh day Elohim completed
His work which He had done, and He rested on the
seventh day from all His work which He had made.
And Elohim blessed the seventh day and
set it apart, because on it He rested from all His
work which Elohim in creating had made.
Notice it does not say,
“He rested on the seventh day from all His work
which He had made then came evening"? Why not?
Why do we see the 6 work days followed by "then came
evening then came morning" but "then came evening"
is not mentioned on the Sabbath?
Notice it does not say
“And Elohim blessed the seventh day and set it
apart, because on it He rested from all His work
which Elohim in creating had made, then came
Remember the 6 work days were
followed by "then came evening" because man “goes
out to his work, And to his labor, till evening.”
Elohim set this example with

Did the seventh day end?
Of course it did.
When? At the beginning of
the first day --> obviously.
When does the first day
begin? In the morning.
How can the Sabbath end at
What would the time period
between the evening and the first day morning be
Does it belong to the first
day? That would make the first day one and a
half days long...
Or the seventh day?
If it belongs to the seventh
day I would be reminded that the Sabbath is the
seventh day and would end as the first day begins as
we shall see shortly.
So maybe Elohim's Rest DID NOT
end at evening like all His work work did Otherwise
it would read,
>>AND THERE CAME TO BE
EVENING AND THERE CAME TO BE MORNING, THE SEVENTH
Think of it this way, how can
work commence when the evening of the 7th day comes?
The 1st day does not begin until the next morning,
so the evening and night belong to the 7th day...

seventh day there is none. Is that talking
about the day light portion only? Or the
whole circuit of the day reaching to the morning
of the 1st day when the manna would fall again?
Exo 16:27 And it came to be that
some of the people went out on the seventh day to
gather, but they found none.
16:28 And Yahuah said
to Mosheh, “How long shall you refuse to guard My
commands and My Torot?
16:29 “See, because Yahuah has given you the Sabbath, therefore He
is giving you >>bread for two days<< on

Mat 28:1 In the end of the
sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of
the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to
see the sepulchre.
Let's break it down:
Mat 28:1 In the end (G3796)

Seems very clear to me that the
"Sabbath" ended as the 1st day of the week
Luk 23:56 And having returned, they prepared
spices and perfumes. And they rested on the Sabbath
according to the command.
It would seem they understood
the command to mean the Sabbath would end as the
first day began. If the Sabbath ended at
evening you have to wonder why they would wait until
morning. But all the accounts show they waited
until morning to go to the tomb.

(By the way,
i'm not applying Psa 1:1 to those who only
observe Sabbath for the 12 hours of the day.)
I know that
there are some who claim that the sabbath is only
12-hours because israel came out of Mitsrayim at
specifically say that they left Rameses on
the 15th day. Now, if someone is using the
strict definition of "day" then we have to take that
at face value and believe they came out of Rameses
during the day - are there not 12 hours to a day?
But yet, the
Scriptures say they came out of Mitsrayim at night.
thoughts are diametrically opposed - how could they
leave during the day, which means light, and come
out at night - which means darkness.
might lie in the fact that leaving Mitsrayim took
place in two parts. The first part is when they left
Rameses during the 15th day, the book of Jasher
specifically says that Pharaoh went to them at night
requesting them to leave and they told him that they
would not leave like thieves in the night.
They left on the next day, which was the 15th
>>day<< of the month.
Yashar Chapter 80
58 And Pharaoh ordered the
children of Israel to be sent away, and all the
Egyptians strengthened themselves to send them, for
they said, We are all perishing.
59 And all the Egyptians sent the Israelites
forth, with great riches, sheep and oxen and precious
things, according to the oath of Yahuah between him
and our Father Abraham.
60 AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL DELAYED GOING
FORTH AT NIGHT, and when the Egyptians came to them to
bring them out, they said to them, ARE WE THIEVES,
THAT WE SHOULD GO FORTH AT NIGHT?
61 And the children of Israel asked of the
Egyptians, vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and
garments, and the children of Israel stripped the
62 And Moses hastened and rose up and went to
the river of Egypt, and brought up from thence the
coffin of Joseph and took it with him.
63 The children of Israel also brought up, each
man his father's coffin with him, and each man the
coffins of his tribe.
1 And the children of Israel
journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred
thousand men on foot, besides the little ones and
2 Also a mixed multitude went up with them, and
flocks and herds, even much cattle.
3 And the sojourning of the children of
Israel, who dwelt in the land of Egypt in hard labor,
was two hundred and ten years.
4 And at the end of two hundred and ten years,
Yahuah brought forth the children of Israel from Egypt
with a strong hand.
5 And the children of Israel TRAVELED FROM
EGYPT AND FROM GOSHEN AND FROM RAMESES, AND ENCAMPED
IN SUCCOTH ON THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE FIRST MONTH.
Exo 12:11 ‘And this is how
you eat it: your loins girded, your sandals on your
feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall EAT
IT IN HASTE. It is the Passover of Yahuah.
Exo 12:22 “And you shall take
a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in
the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts
with the blood that is in the basin, and you, NONE OF
YOU SHALL GO OUT OF THE DOOR OF HIS HOUSE UNTIL
Clearly we can
see that the children of Yasharel did not leave the
night of the 14th. And 'eat in haste' would
suggest that their departure would be soon after
they went out the doors of their houses.
Scripture says they departed Ramses ON the 15th. The
15th would have been the 7th day.
Exo 12:33 And the Mitsrites urged the people,
to >hasten to send them away< out of the land.
For they said, “We are all dying!”
Exo 12:34 And the people took their dough
before it was leavened, having their kneading bowls
bound up in their garments on their shoulders.
Exo 12:35 And the children of Yisra’ĕl had done
according to the word of Mosheh, and they had asked
from the Mitsrites objects of silver, and objects of
gold, and garments.
Exo 12:36 And Yahuah gave
the people favour in the eyes of the Mitsrites, so
that they gave them what they asked, and they
plundered the Mitsrites.
Exo 12:37 And the children of Yisra’ĕl
set out from Raʽmeses to Sukkoth,
about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides the
Exo 12:38 And a mixed multitude went up with
them too, also flocks and herds, very much
Exo 12:39 And they baked unleavened cakes of
the dough which they had brought out of Mitsrayim,
for it was not leavened, since >>they were
driven out of Mitsrayim, and had not been able to
delay,<< nor had they prepared food for
“Not able to delay” yet they waited
until evening??? And what happens at evening? The
light starts to go away?
Exo 12:51 And it came to be
on that >>same day<< that Yahuah brought the children of Yisra’ĕl out of
the land of Mitsrayim according to their divisions.
If they came
out at night then that night had to belong to the

them travelling on the Sabbath, but is this true?
Luk 13:15 Then the Master
answered him and said, “Hypocrite! Does not each one
of you on the Sabbath loosen his ox or his donkey from
the stall, and lead it away to water it?
There are many,
many Scriptures that refer to Israel as being under
the yoke and under the burden, much like an ox.
Israel was released from their burdens and delivered
on the 15th - that's why it is referred to as a high
Sabbath. That is why it is still commemorated as a
rest day but yet they travelled on that day. Is it
right to do good on the Sabbath day? Of course it
is. If anyone of us found animals or humans who were
unjustly being detained on the Sabbath day we would
surely release them from their bondage and lead them
Which is the
whole spirit behind leaving Mitsrayim on the 15th.
This directly corresponds with what Yahusha said in
Luke 13:15. Did they reach the water on the same
day? No, but it is quite possible that they were at
the waters edge on the 22nd day of the month; which
would be the second part, when they left the
physical land of Mitsrayim. When we read the
Exo 14:21 And Mosheh stretched
out his hand over the sea. And Yahuah caused
the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that
night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters
Exo 14:22 And the children of Yisra’ĕl went
into the midst of the sea on dry ground, and the
waters were a wall to them on their right and on their
Exo 14:23 And the Mitsrites pursued and went
after them into the midst of the sea, all the horses
of Pharaoh, his chariots, and his horsemen.
Exo 14:24 And it came to be, in the morning
watch, that Yahuah looked down upon the
army of the Mitsrites through the column of fire and
cloud, and He brought the army of the Mitsrites into
I would contend
that this is what Deut 16:1 is speaking of when it
says they were delivered by night. This account
tells us they went through the sea that night - that
is when they left the land of Mitsrayim because
Mitsrayim boarders on the sea. They were delivered
that night and in the morning they no longer saw
Pharaoh pursuing them.
Deu 16:1 “Guard the month of
Aḇiḇ, and perform the Passover to Yahuah your
Elohim, for in the month of Abib Yahuah your
Elohim brought you out of Mitsrayim by night.
See how it says
"guard the MONTH of Abib"? This is not just speaking
of the Passover, or the 15th - we are to guard the
whole month because of all the activities that take
place; starting with "this is the beginning of
months for you" - that is the first thing we are to
guard. Then on the 10th we are to choose a lamb, the
14th is the Passover, the 15th is ULB, and we guard
the whole week of ULB and we even guard the
understanding of the children of Israel being
delivered from the hand of Pharaoh. This whole
monthly feast cycle brings about the plan of
Again, we can
see using the Scriptures that they left Rameses on
the 15th day, day equals light. Did they leave
Mitsrayim? Yes and no.
Exo 12:37 And the children of Yisra’ĕl set out
from Raʽmeses to Sukkoth,
Was Sukkoth in
the land of Mitsrayim? Yes...
Num 33:5 Then the
children of Yisra’ĕl departed from Raʽmeses and
camped at Sukkoth.
Num 33:6 And they departed from
Sukkoth and camped at Ětham, which is on the edge
of the wilderness.
We can see they
left the land of Mitsrayim during the night. Also to
say that Yahuah wouldn't allow the children of
Israel to travel on the sabbath day, meaning they
waited until night, is not Scriptural. It is
perfectly lawful to do good on the Sabbath day;
whether it would be leading your ox to water,
pulling him out of a ditch, or delivering the
children of Israel from bondage.
Num 33:3 So they departed
from Raʽmeses in the first month, on the fifteenth day
of the first month, on the morrow of the Passover the
children of Yisra’ĕl went out with boldness before the
eyes of all the Mitsrites,
They went out with boldness before the eyes of the
Mitsrites. Does that not suggest that it was day?
And if they wouldn't leave like thieves in the night
on the 14th than why would they do so on the 15th?
Num 33:4 and the Mitsrites were burying all
their first-born, whom Yahuah had
smitten among them. Also on their mighty ones Yahuah
had executed judgments.
And why would
they wait till night to bury their dead? Maybe the
Exodos was in 2 parts. Just like the spiritual
exodus when we are delivered from pharaoh/satan upon
Yahusha's return and he is put in the pit. But
what happens at the end of the 1000 years? Satan is
let loose where he,
Rev 20:7 And when the
thousand years have ended, Satan shall be released
from his prison,
Rev 20:8 and he shall go out to lead the
nations astray which are in the four corners of the
earth, Goḡ and Maḡoḡ, to gather them together for
battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.
Rev 20:9 And they came up over the breadth of
the earth and surrounded the camp of the set-apart
ones and the beloved city. And fire came down from
Elohim out of the heaven and consumed them.
play out much like the first exodus, 2 part
But even if one
rejects that line of understanding there is
absolutely no reason to assume that if the children
of Yasharel waited until night to leave Ramses that
it means the Sabbath is concluded at evening.
- At that time they had not
been given the command of the Sabbath.
Rom 4:15 for the Torah works out wrath, for
where there is no Torah there is no transgression.
- This is exactly why the
15th is a “high” Sabbath...
Exo 12:17 ‘And you shall guard the Festival of
Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I brought your
divisions out of the land of Mitsrayim. And you shall
guard this day throughout your generations, an
- He delivered them from the
bondage of the yoke on that day.
Then the Master answered him and
said, “Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the
Sabbath loosen his ox or his donkey from the stall,
and lead it away to water it?
An ox is a beast of burden?
Mat 12:11 And He said to them,
“What man is there among you who has one sheep, and if
it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, shall not take
hold of it and lift it out?
Mat 12:12 “How much more worth is a man than a
sheep! So it is right to do good on the Sabbath.”
How can we be
so dogmatic about the “LAW” and not understand the
Sabbath is about release? Look at all
the healings Yahusha performed on the Sabbath, and
who had a problem with that? If one would
maintain Elohim would not deliver His people on a
Sabbath than you might want to consider when He will
return... ON the 7th day millenium?
Hos 6:1 ‘Come, and let us turn back to Yahuah. For He has torn but He does heal us,
He has stricken but He binds us up.
Hos 6:2 ‘After two days He shall revive us,
on the third day He shall raise us up, so that we
live before Him.
Hos 6:3 ‘So let us know, let us pursue to
His going forth is as certain as the morning. And He
comes to us like the rain, like the latter rain
watering the earth.’
millennial days is the beginning of the THIRD day
which is equivelent to the 7th millennial day. HIS
going forth is as certain as the MORNING... Morning
of the 7th day... Just like the Impalement, ON the
third day He rose and went forth in the morning...
And speaking of
the 7th millennium that i'm sure we considder as THE
REST we have all been looking forward to - If a 1000
years is as a day, does that not suggest that the
day is speaking of a day comprised of both night and
day? 7000 years = 7 days and nights? If that be the
case, how long will the millennial sabbath last? 500
And what about
the 7th year land rest?
In comparison the land rest is almost identical to
the rest given to man...
Lev 25:2 “Speak to the children of Yisra’el,
and say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I
give you, then the land shall observe a Sabbath to
Lev 25:3 ‘Six years you sow your field, and
six years you prune your vineyard, and gather in its
Remember what we talked
about earlier? If we claim the Sabbath is only the
daylight hours than we should also apply that
reasoning to the work days? What about the year?
Summer and winter is the equivalent to day and
night? So the question comes - Do we only sow
and reap the fields for the first half of the year?
but in the seventh year the land is to have a
Sabbath of rest, a Sabbath to Yahuah. Do not sow your field and do not
prune your vineyard.
about the 7th year? Do we only let it rest for the
summer/day? If we start to sow or reap in the 7th
year are we not violating the command:
Lev 25:3 ‘Six years you sow
your field, and six years you prune your vineyard, and
gather in its fruit,
???? So what is the difference?
Exo 20:9 “Six days you labor, and shall do all
A year is one complete circuit
from 'morning to morning' as is the month or the
Lev 25:8 ‘And you shall count seven Sabbaths
of years for yourself, seven times seven years. And
the time of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be to
you forty-nine years.
Lev 25:9 ‘You shall then sound a ram’s horn
to pass through on the tenth day of the seventh
month, on the Day of Atonement cause a ram’s horn to
pass through all your land.
Lev 25:10 ‘And you shall set the fiftieth
year apart, and proclaim release throughout all the
land to all its inhabitants, it is a Jubilee for
you. And each of you shall return to his possession,
and each of you return to his clan.

you. Do not sow, nor reap what grows of its own, nor
gather from its unpruned vine.

each one of you return to his possession.
Let me ask -

the whole year much the same as the Sabbath year “ Do not sow, nor reap what grows of
I have heard it
said that Elohim only SET APART the daylight hours
of the sabbath, yet I have not seen one scripture to
suggest that this is the case.
Rather it says:
Gen 2:3 And Elohim blessed the
seventh day and set it apart, because on it He rested
from all His work which Elohim in creating had made.
He SET APART
the 7th day
Exo 19:10 And Yahuah said to Mosheh, “Go to the people and
set them apart today and tomorrow. And they shall
wash their garments,

day. For on the third day Yahuah shall come down upon Mount Sinai before
the eyes of all the people.
Are we to
assume that the days they were to be SET APART was
only the day light hours? Of course not... But yet:
Exo 20:8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to set it
Exo 20:9 “Six days you labour, and shall do all
Exo 20:10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath of
Yahuah your Elohim. You do not do any work –
you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male
servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle,
nor your stranger who is within your gates.
Exo 20:11 “For in six
days Yahuah made
the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is
in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore
the Sabbath day and set it apart.
SETTING APART the 7th day is only the day light
No Sabbath Night
I have also
heard it said “Scripture never mentions Sabbath
night” This is true, but common sense and
logic dictates there is. Just as common sense
and logic dictates that the days they were SET APART
included the night without saying “night”...
Gen 1:5 And Elohim called the light ‘day’ and
the darkness He called ‘night.’ And there came to be
evening and there came to be morning, the first day.
No mention of
night yet we know night is going to be part of the
complete circuit of the day.
I know that the Day of Atonements is a special day
and the Sabbath begins on the 9th day in the
evening, yet there is no doubt that this particular
Sabbath includes the night. So there is such
thing as "Sabbath night" without night being
Lev 23:27 “On the tenth day of this seventh
month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be a set-apart
gathering for you. And you shall afflict your beings,
and shall bring an offering made by fire to Yahuah.
Lev 23:28 “And you do no work on that same
day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make
atonement for you before Yahuah your Elohim.
Lev 23:29 “For any being who is not afflicted
on that same day, he shall be cut off from his
Lev 23:30 “And any being who does any work on
that same day, that being I shall destroy from the
midst of his people.
Lev 23:31 “You do no work – a law forever
throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
Lev 23:32 ‘It is a Sabbath of rest to you,
and you shall afflict your beings. On the ninth day
of the month at evening, from evening to evening,
you observe your Sabbath.”
Does the year
have a day and night? Does the land rest the whole
year or just the first half?
This is shared from a morning to morning
persuasion. And if these reasons didn't exist
we would probably agree with the 12 hour Sabbath
