Concerning the Sabbath edict and Christianity…all SDA and Jewish Root-legalists, please read?
The 4th-Commandment is a civil-ceremonial edict and NOT a moral law. Its violation or absence of observance does NOT affect one’s relationship with God if that civil-edict was not an agreed upon requirement of Covenant as the one established specifically between God, Moses, the children of Jacob, in Exodus 16 and codified in stone in Exodus 20. The New Covenant established in Messiah Jesus’ blood (Matthew 26:28) is completely absent a Sabbath mandate but only requires that one believe in Jesus as Lord who died to pay their sin-debt and thereby receive the Holy Spirit, enter the re-birth (be born again by the Spirit) and enter covenant relationship with the Father, forever, in peace and joy and love!God has NEVER entered into a Sabbath Covenant with the Gentiles, not once, unless that Gentile was seeking inclusion into the Israelite Nation and its religious mandates relevant to Judaism.
Jesus, who is God having manifest in flesh to destroy the works of the Devil (1 John 3:8b), NEVER burdened the Gentiles with a Sabbath edict but stated that HE, HIMSELF, is the Sabbath as HE IS THE LORD OF THE SABBATH and Jesus has proclaimed to be our REST our PEACE in the New Covenant (Matthew 12:8; Matthew 11:28-30). The Israeli-Jewish Sabbath pointed the children of Israel to their Messiah and Jesus is the fulfillment of that foreshadowing (Romans 14: Colossians 2:16; Hebrews 4).
It is only the spiritually deceived, the Christian cults AKA the Seventh Day Adventist Church and Christian legalism and Jewish Roots-deceived by righteousness through Law-keeping, that are obsessed and demonically engrossed with a Day while Jesus is NOT concerned about a DAY but Jesus is focused upon a Covenant RELATIONSHIP with God the Father established only by grace (unmerited favor we cannot earn) through faith (trusting-believing) in Jesus as our Lord who died to pay our sin-debt. I do wish you legalistic cults would fade away into the pit and leave the true Christian ALONE!
Unless you have placed yourself under the Covenant of Law and strictly practice Judaism as a religion, the Sabbath edict is IRRELEVANT…go live you life in freedom and peace in the love of Jesus Christ and the beauty and assurance of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Enjoy and rest and worship on any day or everyday you are led by the Spirit to worship (Romans 14). YOU ARE FREE IN JESUS…celebrate it with thankfulness! Rest in Jesus as your Lord.
