Was Adam or any other Gentile commanded to observe a Sabbath?

Elohim rested on the Sabbath. Was the Sabbath, as an edict, mandated for Adam or any Gentile subsequent to the Sixth-Day? Was Elohim required to codify the Sabbath or forbid the worship of other gods for Adam to have known God’s will?

Christian response,

Again, ad nauseam, Adam stood in the presence of God and the moral law was instilled in Adam at his creation…Adam knew God personally…there were no other Gods or Icons to worship in Adam’s world but himself, Eve and Satan…I don’t see the concept of paganism arising among the human population until the Adamic generation flowed into the Noahic generation and the corruption of the human genome and the sin-nature began a catalyst push toward apostasy (Genesis 6).

Nearly half of all human history is reflected in the Genesis narrative and not once does Elohim command Sabbath observance. To suggest that He did is conjecture and adding to the Scriptures on your part…if the Sabbath edict was truly as important to Elohim as your obsessions with it suggest, there would have been a clear and defining edict for all of humankind to follow yet it’s absent until Exodus 16 as God established the Sabbath Day as a Covenant between Himself and Israel’s children. We know this because God was required to provide Moses EXACTING instructions relevant to how the Sabbath was to be honored; this, because NO prior PRECEDENT existed.

12 Then the Lord said to Moses, 13 “Say to the Israelites, ‘You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the Lord, who makes you holy. Exodus 31
