This passage in Colossians refers to the ceremonial law: meat, drink, sabbath feast days,circumcision, unclean meats, which pointed to the sacrifice of Jesus. The ceremonial law was fulfilled. That is why, we, no longer, sacrifice animals.This has nothing to do with God's Covenant with man - the Ten Commandments.

Would like to add a little bit more of what the scripture says about those who God made the covenant of the Law with if I may...[b][color=000000]For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?[/color][/b] -Deuteronomy 4: 7-8Is asked here "What nation?" [b][color=000000]For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.[/color][/b] -Deuteronomy 7:6They are identified as :A special people, above all people that were upon the earth.[b][color=000000]Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.[/color][/b] -Deuteronomy 7:11As to what was given them..There is here mentioned...commandmentsstatutesand judgements.And the Apostolic testimony is[b][color=000000]For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises[/color][/b] -Romans 9:3-4Paul's brethren, according the flesh, who were Israelites.Chris
Christinyou wrote:Colossians 2:13-17 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. 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.Jesus Christ Himself is our Sabbath. We are to now remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy. We are His body the Church and every day is a Sabbath unto Him, every moment is a Sabbath to Him. We are Holy because He is Holy. Do what in remembrance of Him? Take in His body and blood, this is now our Sabbath and our worship.Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service.Remember His day and Keep it Holy. That is 24-7. He is our Sabbath and all in all.In Christ our Sabbath: Phillip
