What you implied was foolish.
So, you are saying, that, we can worship other gods, bow down to graven images, take His name in vain, profane His holy day, dishonour our parents, murder, commit adultery, steal, bear false witness, covet and walk in His Spirit?How foolish!

It is not for us to interpret, but, to obey:"Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor and DO ALL THY WORK: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God..." Ex 20:8-11.Again, we are to "walk as He walked." How did Jesus keep the Sabbath?Worshipping, fellowshipping, resting, casting out demons, healing the sick. In this way, the Sabbath was "made for man.""Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition." Matt 15:6.
Worshipping, fellowshipping, resting, casting out demons, healing the sick. In this way, the Sabbath was "made for man."
You can rationalize all you want. He commanded us to keep the seventh day Sabbath:"If thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day: and call the Sabbath, a delight, the holy of the Lord, honurable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it." Isa 58:13,14.This is quite a promise!I have given you the information. What you do with it is between you and the Lord.
Brother, Christ is our Sabbath! Even as God cesed from His own works on the seventh day, let us cease from ours and do His. The Israelites were commanded to do this once a week. We having entered into the Rest find it to be our life.Rest in Him brother
The Sabbath was made for man, not, only, the Jews. Why is it, that, Christians claim to keep the Ten Commandments, until, it comes to the 4th? The, only, one, that He told us to "remember," is the one that we have forgotten. Shall we spiritualize the other nine commandments and be consistent?It is a day, when we rest from our labors, focus on Him, and minister to others. We shut out all distractions and worship Him, alone.Over 400 churches from different denominations have returned to the Biblical Sabbath: Baptists, Methodists, Nazarenes, SDA, Church of God, Pentecostals...and more all the time.For more information on the Sabbath, please visit www.sabbathtruth.comJesus, our Creator - the "Lord of the Sabbath!" Mark 2:28.
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! You know the truth brother!Here, let me post up some SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT FOR THE SABBATH.........1. After working the first six days of the week in creating thisearth, God rested on the seventh day. Genesis 2:1-3.2.This stamped that day as God's rest day, or Sabbath day, asSabbath day means rest day. To illustrate: When a person is bornon a certain day, that day thus becomes his birthday. So when Godrested upon the seventh day, that day became His rest, or Sabbath,day.3.Therefore the seventh day must always be God's Sabbath day.Can you change your birthday from the day on which you wereborn to one on which you were not born? No. Neither can youchange God's rest day to a day on which He did not rest. Hencethe seventh day is still God's Sabbath day.4. The Creator blessed the seventh day. Genesis 2:3.5. He sanctified the seventh day. Exodus 20:11.6. He made it the Sabbath day in the Garden of Eden. Genesis 2:1-3.8. Jesus says it was made for man, that is, for the race, as the wordman is here unlimited; hence, for the Gentile as well as for theJew. Mark 2:27.9. Not only is the Sabbath made for man, but Jesus said that Hewas Lord of the Sabbath. Mark 2:28.10. It is a memorial of creation. Exodus 20:11; 31:17. Every timewe rest upon the seventh day, as God did at creation, wecommemorate that grand event.11. It was given to Adam, the head of the human race. Mark 2:27;Genesis 2:1-3.12. It is not a Jewish institution, for it was made 2,300 yearsbefore ever there was a Jew.13. The Bible never calls it the Jewish Sabbath, but always "theSabbath of the Lord thy God." Men should be cautious how theystigmatize God's holy rest day.14. Evident reference is made to the Sabbath and the seven-dayweek all through the patriarchal age. Genesis 2:1-3; 8:10,12;29:27,28, etc.15. It was a part of God's law before Sinai. Exodus 16:4,23-29.16. Then God placed it in the heart of His moral law. Exodus20:1-17. Why did He place it there if it was not like the other nineprecepts, which all admit to be immutable?17. The seventh-day Sabbath was commanded by the voice of theliving God. Deuteronomy 4:12,13.18. Then He wrote the commandment with His own finger.Exodus 31:18.19. He engraved it in the enduring stone, indicating itsimperishable nature. Deuteronomy 5:22.20. It was sacredly preserved in the ark in the holy of holies.Deuteronomy 10:1-5.21. God forbade work upon the Sabbath, even in the mosthurrying times. Exodus 34:21.22. God destroyed the Israelites in the wilderness because theyprofaned the Sabbath. Ezekiel 20:12,13.23. It is the sign of the true God, by which we are to know Himfrom the false gods. Ezekiel 20:20.24. God promised that Jerusalem should stand forever if the Jewswould keep the Sabbath. Jeremiah 17:24,25.25. He sent them into the Babylonish captivity for breaking it.Nehemiah 13:18.26. He destroyed Jerusalem for its violation. Jeremiah 17:27.27. God has pronounced a special blessing on all the Gentiles whowill keep it. Isaiah 56:6,7.28. This is in the prophecy which refers wholly to the Christiandispensation. See Isaiah 56.29. God has promised to bless all who keep the Sabbath. Isaiah56:2.30. The Lord requires us to call it "honourable." Isaiah 58:13Beware, you who take delight in calling it the "old JewishSabbath," "a yoke of bondage," etc.31. After the holy Sabbath has been trodden down "manygenerations," it is to be restored in the last days. Isaiah 58:12,13.32. All the holy prophets kept the seventh day.33. When the Son of God came, He kept the seventh day all Hislife. Luke 4:16; John 15:10. Thus He followed His Father'sexample at creation. Shall we not be safe in following the exampleof both the Father and the Son?34. The seventh day is the Lord's day. See Revelation 1:10; Mark2:28; Isaiah 58:13; Exodus 20:10.35. Jesus was Lord of the Sabbath (Mark 2:28), that is, to love andprotect it, as the husband is the lord of the wife, to love andcherish her. 1 Peter 3:6.36. He vindicated the Sabbath as a merciful institution designedfor man's good. Mark 2:23-28.37. Instead of abolishing the Sabbath, He carefully taught how itshould be observed. Matthew 12:1-13.38. He taught His disciples that they should do nothing upon theSabbath day but what was "lawful." Matthew 12:12.39. He instructed His apostles that the Sabbath should beprayerfully regarded forty years after His resurrection. Matthew24:20.40. The pious women who had been with Jesus carefully kept theseventh day after His death. Luke 23:56.41. Thirty years after Christ's resurrection, the Holy Spiritexpressly calls it "the sabbath day." Acts 13:14.42. Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, called it the "sabbath day" inA.D. 45. Acts 13:27. Did not Paul know? Or shall we believemodern teachers, who affirm that it ceased to be the Sabbath at theresurrection of Christ?43. Luke, the inspired Christian historian, writing as late as A.D.62, calls it the "sabbath day." Acts 13:44.44. The Gentile converts called it the Sabbath. Acts 13:42.45. In the great Christian council, A.D. 49, in the presence of theapostles and thousands of disciples, James calls it the "sabbathday." Acts 15:21.46. It was customary to hold prayer meetings upon that day. Acts16:13.47. Paul read the Scriptures in public meetings on that day. Acts17:2,3.48. It was his custom to preach upon that day. Acts 17:2,3.49. The Book of Acts alone gives a record of his holding eightyfourmeetings upon that day. See Acts 13:14,44; 16:13; 17:2;18:4,11.50. There was never any dispute between the Christians and theJews about the Sabbath day. This is proof that the Christians stillobserved the same day that the Jews did.51. In all their accusations against Paul, they never charged himwith disregarding the Sabbath day. Why did they not, if he did notkeep it?52. But Paul himself expressly declared that he had kept the law."Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple,nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all." Acts25:8. How could this be true if he had not kept the Sabbath?53. The Sabbath is mentioned in the New Testament fifty-ninetimes, and always with respect, bearing the same title it had in theOld Testament, "the sabbath day."54. Not a word is said anywhere in the New Testament about theSabbath's being abolished, done away, changed, or anything of thekind.55. God has never given permission to any man to work upon it.Reader, by what authority do you use the seventh day for commonlabor?56. No Christian of the New Testament, either before or after theresurrection, ever did ordinary work upon the seventh day. Findone case of the kind, and we will yield the question. Why shouldmodern Christians do differently from Bible Christians?57. There is no record that God has ever removed His blessing orsanctification from the seventh day?58. As the Sabbath was kept in Eden before the fall, so it will beobserved eternally in the new earth after the restitution. Isaiah66:22,23.59. The seventh-day Sabbath was an important part of the law ofGod, as it came from His own mouth, and was written by His ownfinger upon stone at Sinai. See Exodus 20. When Jesus began Hiswork, He expressly declared that He had not come to destroy thelaw. "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or theprophets." Matthew 5:17.60. Jesus severely condemned the Pharisees as hypocrites forpretending to love God, while at the same time they made voidone of the Ten Commandments by their tradition. The keeping ofSunday is only a tradition of men.
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! You know the truth brother!
Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. (Col. 2:16, 17) One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. (Romans 14:5) Christ is the end of the Law to everyone who believes. This is not to say we are 'lawless' but it is certain that we will get no closer to the glory of God by merely re-establishing Shabbat as the formal day of Christian worship. First century Christians observed Shabbat on Saturday and continued on in fellowship with believers on the first day of the week. This practice ended when the [i]Perushim[/i] (Pharisees) established the "Birkat Ha Minim" (Curse of the Christian Heretics) Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. (I Cor. 16:2)This is clearly Sunday. Sabbath began at the first star appearing on Friday night and ended when the first star appeared on Saturday. It is the Jews who believe that Messiah would return if every Jew on earth would observe Sabbath at one time. This is a tradition. This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? (Gal. 3:3)This is the question above all others. The people in Galatia had to endure the teaching of folk who came in believing they could improve the spiritual climate of the church by bringing the people back under certain aspects of the Mosiac law. Circumcision was one of them. Tithe is one that is often preached also. Sabbath is another. But it is impossible to find a deeper spirituality in coming under the Law again. Revival will not come because the people start observing Shabbat- it would actually be a step backwards.The Ark represented the throne of God. As you entered the Tabernacle the sense was of ascending into heaven. Imagine the horizontal structure standing vertically. The veil prevented man from entering the throne room. It was 4 inches thick woven of one seam. Who could enter? Some say that God's glory drew the High Priest through the veil with the blood in the container in his hands. Yet, it was a clear barrier. This was true for the vast majority of departed souls as well as coming into the throne room of grace in prayer. There is a liberty that we have now that did not exist before. Beside of this the key to the New Covenant is the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven.Having begun in the Spirit will we now improve upon our Spiritual state by coming under certain aspects of the Law? Certainly not. The key to revival is a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit that causes us to live out the personality of God contained within the Law. Christ is our Sabbath rest. We have ceased from our own works as God did from His. If a person wants to observe Sabbath that is their own perogative. But to preach it as essential to spiritual blessing is to incur the wrath of Galatians 1. Paul said he wished that they were even cut-off that 'trouble' you. If I want to observe Sabbath I can. But I must not suggest that you 'must' or that somehow I am the more 'spiritual' or pleasing to God in the doing. It is a matter of conscience.
