Shabbat food!

Shabbat food? Why does Saba call it the main honor of Shabbat?

We sing at kiddush that “because in six days Gd created the heavens and the earth and on the seventh day, he rested”.
Is this really the case? When you know that word #4 and word #5 following “in the beginning””created””The Lords”...the heavens (4) and the earth (5).

Fair to state that the heaven and earth witnessed what was to come next, so “the Lords” were no longer alone. No day one and no man created yet, no sixth day!! Two witnesses already present.

The food of the seventh
Day being the main honor of Shabbat and not the resting...

Rabbi Nachman underlines for us that the fasting he did 18 weeks in a row from Shabbat to Shabbat was a mistake because happiness is a better way to praise Gd...he says the food (feast) of Shabbat has the value of a six day fast.  This is one activity that weakened him
Physically...but we did gain an invaluable lesson.

The statements remain a mystery until we realize the difference between the people of Ninve and those of Shushan both doing a similar  3 day fast.   The people of Ninve obeyed their King who ordered a 40 day fast (since Moses would certainly be respected) Gd abolished his threat on the third day of miraculous fasting.  The people of Mordecai (according to Haman) did a miraculous three day fast to assist Esther showing a degree of solidarity that we aspire to.  In Jewish law a triple repetition establishes a permanent change.  The lust for food was domesticated by both civilizations.  Three plus three (3+3) make six, like the six days to create the sky and the earth.  This answers the question above.  Man also is created with heaven and earth since the breath of Gd is given to a lump of earth.  Esav and Jacob are also hands and a voice..(“hands of Esav, voice of Jacob”).

Lords places himself second to creating but third after in the beginning which can only be considered a word! We can already identify Jacob and Esav the twin sons of “Isaac”(scream/Israel). Similarity the sky comes before earth even if the clump of clay was formed before the breath of life was blown into it.

Have you noticed that people that fast have a very limited conversation?  The Cabalists say that you need to eat the letters to speak them.

The LAST word in the last book of Moses is “Israel”, Israel being read BEFORE “in the beginning”.  There are those that feast for Gd on the seventh day be it, Friday or Sunday! For three generations you will not accept Ishmael (because he was a good host) or Esav (because he is your brother).  Makes perfect nonsense! Until you realize that if they have respected the 7th day for three generations they already ARE Israel on condition that they keep the Brit (circumcision).  If this 8th day event is similar to the eight candle WITH the seventh candle being called THE Shabbat candle.  Then keeping the promise from above “Pakod Pakodeti” is not less significant than the Brit from below known as the circumbcision.  In other words, keeping a spoken oath is not less significant than the materialistic removal of the forskin.

Since the holy faculty of speech is only possible due to eating, by eating on the seventh day we elevate ourselves to the status of Israel and receive words that can create.  This is the will of the Lords.  Until the arrival of Abraham who unlike Melkitzedek (of Jerusalem),  annihilates all the Lords and establishes One single Gd for all.

Shabbat is the day of THE LORD and his abode is Jerusalem.  If you live in Israel you cannot work in public places on the seventh day, this is hateful to the Lord.  No matter where you are and what seventh day you choose to eat in honor of The day celebrating Creation, this will empower your speech and/or the work of your hands will benefit from it.
