In the first creation that God made for Adam, “YES” we have to rest on the seven day. But in the second creation that God made for Jesus the Christ “NO”. He. 4: 8-11. For if Joshua had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remain therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. We see in those scriptures that the bible spoke of two “rest” day, one in the old Covenant and one in the new Covenant. Let us see what God said about the old Covenant Sabbath. Hosea 2: 11; Isaiah 1: 13-14. I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her Sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts. Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and “sabbaths”, the calling of assemblies, I will do away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hate: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
The old Sabbath was a shadow to the real rest that was to come by Jesus Christ our Lord, we now rested in the blood sacrifice that Jesus made to God, as a Lamb to cleanse us from all of our sins. 2Cor. 5: 21.
Now let us see what God said about the rest day of the new covenant. Col. 2: 14-18. 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 holiday, or of the new moon, or of the “Sabbath days:” Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he had not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind.
The Holy Spirit Had the disciples to gather on the first day of the week because He wanted to remove the old Sabbath day from they mind. In revelation 1: 10. He said this is His day, the first day the day of the “resurrection”. In Acts 20: 7-8 the disciples gathered on the first day of the week for “communion” and continue in 1Cor 16: 2 meeting on the day of the Lord till this very day.
Let us examine the religions that keep the old Testament Sabbath day of rest till today. First, we have the Hasidic Jews who keep the Sabbath day of rest religiously, and worship “Yahweh” as they god. But hate the name “Yahshua” the son of the living God. Second, we have the Muslim religion beliefs who also keep the Sabbath day of rest, and worship “Allah” as they god. And teaches that “Yahshua” is not the son of the living God. Thirdly, we have the Adventist religion beliefs who also keep the Sabbath day of rest, who also worship “Jehovah” as they god, but see “Jesus” as Michael the Archangel before becoming Jesus in the flesh.
We that are in Jesus Christ we glorify the name of “JESUS” because He is our Lord and God Jh 14: 6-17 Jh 20: 24-29. And His name is above all other names, and that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that “Yahshua” or the name “JESUS” is Lord, to the glory of God the Father Philippians 2: 9-11.
Jh. 5: 16-18. Therefore the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to kill him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath day. But Jesus answered them, my Father work until now, and I work. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because He not only had “BROKEN” the sabbath, but said also that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God. Ignorant people seek they own righteousness Rom 10: 1-5. My self I rest in the work of Jesus Christ on the cross for my Salvation, and “rested in His Resurrection” that gives me joy over death 1Cor 15: 55-57. May the good Lord Jesus Christ richly bless you and sanctify you by His blood till He comes. It’s in Jesus Christ Almighty name, the only name that God the Father gave under Heaven I pray Amen Acts 4: 10-12. Alleluia the highest praise to “YAHSHUA” NAME. Shalom in Jesus Jh 14: 27.
