A "seal" is arguably the most important part of a legal document.  Without the seal, the words on the paper would be, well, just words on paper.  They would have no power.  With a seal attached, however, the words become law.  The seal carries the full weight of authority and power which belongs to the monarch or person which owns the seal.

All seals contain three elements.  Without these, a seal could not function; it would not represent the monarch it is supposed to symbolize.  These three key elements are:

Queen Elizabeth II Seal

When Queen Elizabeth II granted permission for her grandson, Prince William, to marry Catherine Middleton, she signed a Notice of Approval.  At the bottom of the document, attached by gold braiding, is a large, red wax Great Seal of the Realm.

  1. The name of the law giver;
  2. The title of the law giver;
  3. The authority of the law giver; the dominion over which he rules.

A seal is typically cast at the beginning of a sovereign's reign.  If the seal becomes too worn through use, a new one is made and the old seal is defaced so that it can no longer be used to seal legal decrees.  Great care is taken to protect the official seal.  Without it, nothing (including a signature) is official.  But with it, a mere piece of paper becomes a powerful decree, carrying the full weight of the king.

The Monarch of the Universe also has a seal.  This seal, like the seals of earthly monarchs, is found in His law.  In fact, it is part of His law.  The divine law that is to govern all intelligent beings in the universe is the Ten Commandment Law.  The first four commandments cover man's responsibility to his Maker; the last six govern man's actions toward his fellow man.

Of all the commandments, only the fourth commandment contains the name, title and authority of the great Lawgiver. 

Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.  Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yahuwah thy Elohim: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days Yahuwah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yahuwah blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.  (See Exodus 20:8-11.)

Thus, the fourth commandment is itself the seal of Yahuwah because it contains the three elements necessary for all seals - plus one - it also has a DATE!

  • NAME: Yahuwah
  • TITLE: Elohim
  • AUTHORITY & DOMINION: Heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is
  • DATE: Day 7 - that was the date on Earth - right after Creation.
     

The fact that the Sabbath itself is the seal of Yahuwah is very significant.  Of all the commandments, the fourth commandment is the most unpopular.  Satan knows that it contains the seal of the Most High.  Using various reasoning, he has done his utmost to lead people to break or otherwise ignore this important commandment.  Two of the most common reasons why people break the fourth commandment are:

  • "Jesus was resurrected on Sunday, so we should worship on that day in honor of the resurrection."  (This reason ignores the fact that all the apostles and all early Christians kept the seventh-day Sabbath for centuries after the resurrection and ascension of the Saviour.)
  • "The Sabbath was 'nailed to the cross' and is no longer binding."  (This logic is inconsistent by admitting that all the other nine commandments are still binding.)

The fact is, the fourth commandment is, as it has always been, the seal of the Creator.  Yahuwah does not change.  He says of Himself: "I am Yahuwah, I change not."  (See Malachi 3:6.)  It would be far more consistent for earthly monarchs to change their own laws then for the Changeless One to set aside His own perfect law.

Some who worship on Saturday, reject the lunar Sabbath because: "All God requires is that you worship on the seventh day of whatever calendar society is using."  This reasoning is also inconsistent because if it is important to worship on a specific day (the seventh) than it is important that the calendar one uses to count to the seventh day is the Biblical calendar.

As Yahuwah's official seal, the Sabbath has three functions: 1) It protects; 2) It strengthens; 3) It is a sign of loyalty.

A Seal Protects

When something is sealed, it protects that which has been sealed.  A woman who cans food has protected the food in the jar, when she processes the jars in boiling water so that the lids sealcanned fruits and vegetables tightly.  When Herod sealed Yahushua's tomb, it was supposedly for the purpose of protecting the body of the Saviour so that His disciples could not come, steal His body and claim He had been resurrected.  Anything that is under a seal is thus protected.

Those who honor their Creator by worshipping Him on His holy Sabbath are also under His protection.  This divine protection is very real.  It is extended to all who keep the Sabbath day holy. 

Satan is very aware that all who worship on the true Sabbath are under the protection of this divine seal.  He hates this fact!  When he was accusing Job of serving Yahuwah for selfish purposes, Satan complained, "Doth Job fear . . . [Elohim] for not?  Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side?"  (Job 1:9, 10, KJV)

The holy law provides a hedge, a wall of protection around all who obey that law.  Those who live in obedience are under the seal of Yahuwah and are thus under His direct protection.

A Seal Strengthens

A seal is made from wax.  Wax is melted and the metal mold is pressed into the malleable wax.  As the wax receives the impress of the seal, it hardens.  wax sealThe hardened wax seal is a perfect mirror-reflection of the metal seal that formed it.

All who receive the seal of Yahuwah in their minds, like the wax, receive the divine impress.  This is what is prophesied in Jeremiah 31:33:

This shall be the covenant [promise] that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith Yahuwah, I will put My law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Elohim, and they shall be My people.  And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know Yahuwah: for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith Yahuwah: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.  (See Jeremiah 31:33, 34.)

When Yahuwah's seal is applied to the mind and soul of the repentant sinner, a new creature is formed.  The mind becomes renewed; it becomes one with the divine mind.  The thoughts, emotions, motives and desires now reflect the lovely image of the Creator.  Because Yahuwah's law is a perfect transcript of His character, all who are sealed by Yahuwah are gifted with His loveliness of character.  The weak, vacillating man becomes strong through faith in His redeemer.  The angry, spiteful woman becomes meek and gentle through the transformation of her mind as she claims by faith the righteousness of Yahushua. 

Now He who establishes us with you in Yahushua and has anointed us is Yahuwah, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a deposit.  (See 2 Corinthians 1:21-22, emphasis supplied.)

The power of Yahuwah seals (keeps, preserves, safeguards) all who have entrusted themselves into His care and keeping.

The sealing is a pledge from . . . [Yahuwah] of perfect security to His chosen ones.  Sealing indicates you are . . . [Yahuwah’s] chosen.  He has appropriated you to Himself. As the sealed of . . . [Yahuwah] we are . . . [Yahushua's] purchased possession, and no one shall pluck us out of His hands.1

Sign of Loyalty

The Sabbath, which contains the seal of Yahuwah, is ultimately a sign of loyalty.  It differentiates between those who serve Yahuwah and those who do not.

Rebellion and disobedience to the divine law has always been the mark of Satan's kingdom.  On the other hand, loyalty to the divine law is a sign that distinguishes the subjects of Heaven.man with hand over his heart  Yahushua clearly explained that real proof of love for Yahuwah was found in the heart-response to His law: "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments."  (John 14:15)

Yahuwah's people, as subjects of Heaven, love the Law Giver.  Thus, they obey the great Law of Love.  Worship on the true Sabbath is their pledge of allegiance to their Creator.  Scripture even states that the Sabbath was given to be a sign between Yahuwah and His people.

Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am . . . [Yahuwah] who sanctifies you."  (Exodus 31:13) 

All who are saved in the end, will have been sealed with the seal of the living Elohim.  Revelation foretells:

After these things I saw four angels standing upon the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.  Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living . . . [Elohim].  And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our . . . [Elohim] on their foreheads."  (Revelation 7:1-3, NKJV)

This is one of the last things accomplished before the very end.  It has its counterpart in the Old Testament prophecy of Ezekiel:

Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, "Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand."  And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate . . . each with his battle-ax in his hand.  One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer's inkhorn at his side. 

. . . And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer's inkhorn at his side; and . . . [Yahuwah] said to him, "Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it." 

To the others He said in my hearing, "Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity.  Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary." 

So they began with the elders who were before the temple.  (Ezekiel 9:1-6, NKJV)

woman looking into the distanceThe seven last plagues fall upon all who have not received the seal of Yahuwah.  The divine seal covers all who have repented and returned to the worship of the Creator on His holy Sabbath day.  They have received His seal in their foreheads through obedience to His law.  Thus, they are preserved and kept safe through the seven last plagues.

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty . . . A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.  Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked.

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.  He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.  (Psalm 91:1, 7-8, 14, 15)

Join with the loyal in heaven and on earth.  Show your loyalty to your Maker.  Worship on the true seventh-day Sabbath and receive the seal of Yahuwah.
