Shalom, To have a beautiful blessed Restful Shabbat I found I need to PREPARE for rest. We all have different task we need to accomplish to make this happen. My point is that we look at Friday as a day of preparation. Wake up with a since of urgency Friday morning, because we all have an appointment with Yah. Matthew 27:62 ❤
The next day, that is, AFTER THE DAY OF PREPARATION, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate
Mark 15:42 ❤

And when evening had come, since it WAS THE DAY OF PREPARATION,
that is, the day before the Sabbath,
Luke 23:54 ❤
IT WAS THE DAY OF PREPARATION,
and THE SABBATH WAS BEGINNING.[a]
John 19:31 ❤
SINCE IT WAS THE DAY OF PREPARATION, and so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away.
Colossians 2:16-17 ❤
Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. 17 These are a shadow of the things to come, BUT THE SUBSTANCE BELONGS TO CHRIST.
Matthew 12:8 ❤
For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”
