Jesus is a Jew, kept the Sabbath and the Law, you must do likewise! Really?

Law Keeper says: “Jesus was a Jew and kept the Sabbath and the Law; therefore, we must do likewise.” Is this theologically accurate?

My life as a Christian is NOT consumed by what “I must do” today to please God because God the Father is pleased that I am HIS by faith in His Son, that His Spirit resides within me with intimacy…this is rest…NOT a “day” or a “law” or a “tradition” or doctrine of men who are presently awaiting judgment for their apostasy.
Jesus is God – Elohim who entered Time through the Tribe of Judah under the Law to redeem those under the Law (Galatians 4:4) and to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8b) through selfless love, but those under the Law rejected Him, blasphemed Him, falsely accused Him, murdered Him and demanded that His blood be upon them and their children (Matthew 27:25); obviously, seeking righteousness through Law was a complete failure and Jacob’s children made this truism abundantly clear; we see by example that the Law does not provide peace, rest or relationship with God the Father (Galatians 2:16).

Jesus provided both the moral law of conscience (Romans 2:14-15) and a reiteration of that law etched in stone for Israel’s children known as the Law Covenant including 613-laws with ceremonial, civil, dietary, mandates specifically for Israel’s children. Jesus kept the moral laws in perfection, something mankind could never do, and shed His innocent blood at Golgotha to fulfill the sacrificial atoning mandates of Leviticus 17:11 so that by faith in His sacrifice for me, I could receive the imputation of HIS righteousness into and over my life, forever, and receive the beautiful Holy Spirit who walks me in Sabbath Peace and Rest through faith in Jesus every single day of my life (2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:13-14; Romans 5:1; Hebrews 4).

Jesus is the fulfillment of all the Sabbath edict foreshadowed (Colossians 2:16; Romans 14; Hebrews 4) and in Jesus and ONLY in Jesus through the Holy Spirit is there “peace” and “rest” with God the Father (John 14:23). As a Christian, I don’t worship or serve rules etched in stone or days or festivals or traditions…I worship and serve the Living God, Jesus Christ, by faith and through His Spirit; the indwelling Holy Spirit is my Law Giver (Galatians 5:16) and Sanctification and in this there is intimacy with God that no day or rule could ever provide. You don’t understand this because you don’t belong to God but you belong to a false god of self-righteousness through a facade of obedience to a Law that only condemns you but provides you no rest, no peace, no joy, no hope (Galatians 3:10; James 2:10; Romans 8; 3:20). You worship yourself in pride and arrogance in self-righteousness and point an accusatory finger at those who don’t comply with your legalism.

Concerning your Sabbath Day,

The Sabbath edict was given exclusively to Israel as a sign between God and Israel beginning in Exodus 16 and at NO TIME, from Adam forward, has God commanded a Sabbath as observance for a Gentile lest same sought inclusion into Israel’s society under Covenant of Law. I belong to Jesus through the Holy Spirit and God the Father is mine by faith in Jesus as my Redeemer, My Lord; therefore, take your Sabbath legalistic nonsense and go away…I am NOT under your Law and your legalistic futility. Sabbatarianism is a spiritual illness of Jewish Roots, SDA Cult members, a works doctrine of self-righteousness and if you’re going to demand that others keep a Sabbath or any Law of the Covenant, first keep them yourself by example and demonstrate the “peace” and “rest” and “love” you’ve received through self-righteousness.
