Sabbath More Fully


The Sabbath was Made PRIOR TO the Fall of Adam

"8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 11 For [in] six days YHWH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore YHWH blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it." Exodus 20:8, 11.


The Sabbath is the First of YHWH's Feasts.

"1. And YHWH spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, [Concerning] the feasts [Strong's H4150, mo'ed] of YHWH, which ye shall proclaim [to be] holy convocations, [even] these [are] My feasts [Strong's H4150, mo'ed].
3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day [is] the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work [therein]: it [is] the Sabbath of YHWH in all your dwellings.
4. These [are] the feasts [Strong's H4150, mo'ed] of YHWH, [even] holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons [Strong's H4150, mo'ed]." Leviticus 23:1-4.


The Sun and Moon Were Created to Demarcate The Already Existing Mo'edim (Feasts) PRIOR TO the Fall of Adam.

“14. And Elohim said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons [Strong’s H4150, mo’ed], and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And Elohim made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: [he made] the stars also.” Genesis 1:14-16.

“19. He appointed the moon for seasons [Strong’s H4150, mo’ed]: ...” Psalm 104:19f.

The Present and Future "Sabbath" Rest

“3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as He said, As I have sworn in My wrath, if they shall enter into My rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
4 For He spake in a certain place of the seventh [day] on this wise, And Elohim did rest the seventh day from all His works.
5 And in this [place] again, If they shall enter into My rest.
6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
7 Again, He limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts.
8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then would He not afterward have spoken of another day.
9 So that there is still a Sabbath-keeping for the people of Elohim.
10 For he that is entered into His rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as Elohim [did] from His.
11. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” Hebrews 4:3-11.


"I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They have not rejected the light upon it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, [little time of trouble, see page 85] we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully. This enraged the churches and nominal Adventists, as they could not refute the Sabbath truth. And at this time God's chosen all saw clearly that we had the truth, and they came out and endured persecution with us." Ellen G.White, Early Writings, page 33.



A Sabbath (week) of days = the Seventh-day Sabbath.
A Sabbath (week) of weeks = the Feast of Weeks, Pentecost.
A Sabbath (week) of months = the seventh new moon, the Feast of Trumpets.
A Sabbath (week) of years = the Sabbatical year.
A Sabbath (week) of weeks of years = the Jubilee.


There are seven feasts having seven festival sabbaths:

  1. The Seventh-day Sabbath,
  2. Passover
  3. The Feast of Unleavened Bread, (2 festival sabbaths)
  4. Pentecost, (1 festival sabbath)
  5. Feast of Trumpets, (1 festival sabbath)
  6. Day of Atonement, (1 festival sabbath)
  7. Feast of Tabernacles. (2 festival sabbaths)

Total (7 festival sabbaths)




Welcome to the website.

While this site contains theological studies on many topics, the primary purpose of this website is to “Proclaim the Sabbath More Fully.” That is to call attention to all of YHWH’s “sabbaths”: The seventh-day Sabbath, the festival sabbaths, and the land sabbaths. Further, this site is dedicated to proclaiming the Mo’edim (Feasts) of the New Covenant, especially as they relate to YHWH’s Feast, the Seventh-day Sabbath.

In order to show New Covenant support for these “sabbaths” of YHWH and for YHWH’s mo’edim (feasts), this site is also dedicated to showing the continuing role of the Torah (often called, the Law of Moses), under the New Covenant.

In light of this dedication to lifting up the Torah (first five books of the Hebrew Scriptures), this site, and its owner, Stephen W. Kraner, joins the swelling movement of Messianic, Hebrew Roots, Sacred Name, Torah observant, teachers and believers who are the endtime “restorers of paths to dwell in,” (Isaiah 58:12), the “paths [cycles] of righteousness” of Psalms 23:3. Restoring Torah to its proper place within the New Covenant requires addressing several misunderstood texts in the Christian New Testament writings. This site includes studies that address these common texts that are used to teach that the Law of Moses, in whole or in part, including the “feast days, new moons and sabbaths” of the “Old Covenant,” were “done away,” “fulfilled,” upon the death of Yahushua ha’Messhiach, when He was hanged in the tree.

Besides “restoring” the Biblical Sabbath (More Fully); beside restoring YHWH’s Mo’edim; besides restoring the Torah to its proper role within the New Covenant; this site is also dedicated to “restoring” the truth about the doctrine of the “G-dhead.” This site is also dedicated to restoring the Sacred Name(s), with their annunciation, to the remnant believers in YHWH’s covenants of promise.

And, in time, this site shall also address the restoration of the knowledge of the true character of YHWH, that the remnant not be deceived by the false representations of the Divine character.

The theme of “restoration” extends to issues of the restoration of Divine worship, including the Messianic Synagogue worship service, issues regarding sacred music, issues regarding Davidic dance: its role, time and place within Messianic Worship.

The theme of “restoration” extends to the restoration of the Hebrew tongue. But, since I am hardly a beginner in the study of Hebrew, links to other websites that address the topic of learning Hebrew are provided.

The theme of “restoration” on this site, extends to addressing and exposing misconceptions and ignorance regarding issues pertaining to the canon of Scripture, including the Book of Enoch and certain books belonging to what is called, The Apocrypha. Studies in this website shall show New Testament quotations and allusions to the apocrypha books of The Wisdom of Solomon and Second Esdras.
