Dd-42. Is the FOURTH COMMANDMENT ETERNAL?


This study is actually part five of the study Dd-69. Is PAUL a TRUE APOSTLE of JESUS? Part 1 “Part 2”, and part four that study is called Dd-72. Is the APOSTLE PAUL a FALSE TEACHER? This particular section five of that series of studies I moved up because most seventh day of the week Sabbath-keeping Christians do NOT believe the Paul is a false Apostle or a false teacher. But rather, they “INTERPRET” the teachings of Paul to FIT their preconceived belief that Christians must keep the TEN Commandments and the Law of Moses to the OLDNESS of the LETTER as opposed to the NEWNESS of the SPIRIT, according to Romans 7:6. I wrote that series of studies to show how DECEIVED some Sabbath DAY keeping Christ have become. I do not believe that any of the Jesus words only Sabbath DAY keeping Christians started out as haters of the Apostle Paul. It was only when they could no longer refute the teachings of Paul that they went DEEPER in the deception of Satan to become Paul haters. 

Now, in part five of this series of studies I will focus on whether or not Christians must keep the weekly Sabbath day by observing a DAY of the WEEK. Some Christians believe that we must keep SATURDAY, the SEVENTH day of the week holy as commanded by the fourth commandment under the Old Covenant. Other Christians believe that we should REST on Sunday, the first day of the week. Other Christians believe that we should REST at least one day of the week but it does not matter which day of the week. And yet other Christians believe that we are NOT commanded to REST or to observe and keep ANY day of the week.

Now the REASON that there is division in the body of Christ is that some Christians wrongly believe that the keeping of the SEVENTH DAY was instituted by Almighty God Yahweh in the creation week and that the SEVENTH DAY of the week was commanded by God to be kept from Adam to ETERNITY.

To say this another way, some Christians, who I will call Sabbath-keeping Christians, believe that Christians must keep the SEVENTH DAY of the WEEK like the Jews under the OLD covenant. While on the other side of the controversy all other Christians believe that God gave the keeping of the seventh day of the week to CEASE from their OWN works was given by God to the children of Israel as the SIGN of the OLD covenant between them and Yahweh. And the SIGN of the seventh DAY of rest points to Jesus as the SIGN of the NEW Covenant where Jesus becomes our TRUE SABBATH to CEASE from the WORKS of the law CONTAINED in ORDINANCES that Jesus abolished on the cross, according to Ephesians 2:8-15 and Colossians 2-3-22.

But because seventh DAY Sabbath-keeping Christians sincerely believe with all their hearts, that God instituted the keeping of the SEVENTH DAY of the WEEK as a day of REST, based solely upon the fact that God Himself “RESTED” on the SEVENTH day of the creation week that he had done up to that point in time. Thus, based solely upon their INTERPRETATION that since God rested on the seventh day, then according to them, that means God must have commanded Adam to rest on the seventh day. In other words, the seventh day of the week Sabbath-keeping Christians believe that the keeping of the SEVENTH DAY of the WEEK as an ETERNAL commandment of Almighty God. Therefore, to THEM, or in THEIR eyes other Christians are SINNING by NOT keeping the SEVENTH DAY of the WEEK by resting from all work on the SEVENTH DAY of the week. The word “perpetual” translated as eternal in other translations means to them from ADAM to eternity future. But the fail to realize the the Hebrew word that is TRANSLATED as perpetual in the KJV and as eternal in other Bibles ALSO means for an AGE, from and age to another age, and for a long time.

The Bible ITSELF clearly teaches us in simplicity that God gave the weekly Sabbath to the children of ISRAEL for THEM to keep throughout THEIR generation as a SIGN for a PERPETUAL covenant FOREVER. Please read Exodus 31:15-17.


Exodus 31:14-17.


YOU shall keep the Sabbath, therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defiles it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever (Of YOU, speaking of the children of Israel after God led them out of bondage in the land of Egypt who) does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

15.  Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever (Of YOU, speaking of the children of Israel after God led them out of bondage in the land of Egypt who) does any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

16.  Wherefore, the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. (And NOT for an eternal commandment. WHY? Why is the FOURTH commandment NOT an eternal commandment for the children of Israel?) 

17.  It is a SIGN between me and the children of Israel forever: (Again, the Hebrew word TRANSLATED as forever also means for an AGE. And that AGE is this present world that began at the cross and END at the coming of Jesus to rule as the Lord of the TRUE SABBATH during the Seventh 1000 year long day of Yahweh rest during the world to come) for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.” 


Both the word perpetual and the word forever are translated from the Hebrew word “OLAM”. And in some Bible translations, this Hebrew word “OLAM” is translated as ETERNAL. This Hebrew word “OLAM” has many meanings, so it does NOT ALWAYS mean eternal. But rather, the Hebrew word “OLAM” means an AGE or AGES. And in some verses, it is translated as a long time. Here is how the concordance defines this Hebrew word “OLAM”.


‛ôlâm    ‛ôlâm

o-lawm', o-lawm'

From H5956; properly concealed, that is, the vanishing point; generally time out of mind (past or future), that is, (practically) eternity; frequentative adverbially (especially with prepositional prefix) always: - always (-s), ancient (time), any more, continuance, eternal, (for, [n-]) ever (-lasting, -more, of old), lasting, long (time), (of) old (time), perpetual, at any time, (beginning of the) world (+ without end). Compare H5331, H5703.


And an AGE can be a long time or any length of time such as 1000 years. Or from an age to an age like the suffering of the wicked being burned live in the lake of fire is NOT for all eternity future as some Chirstians CLAIM but for an age to and age. That means from the end of the AGE of the 1000 year reign of Jesus to the AGE of the new heaven and the new earth. I mean the Bible teaches us that the wicked will be CONSUMED and turned to ASHED which will not take all eternity future as some INTERPRET the Scriptures to mean based solely on the TRANSLATION of the Greek word “aionios”  In the New Testament the Greek word translated as eternal and forever also means and AGE. So the phrase “for ever and ever” literally means for or from an AGE to an AGE in many places. I already cover the verses where this Hebrew word “OLAM” does not always mean for eternity in the studies called Dd-15. THE WEEKLY SABBATH REST is a SIGN!  and Dd-13. Is JESUS OUR TRUE SABBATH REST? So you can read those studies if you are not convinced that the weekly Sabbath was NOT given to be kept for all eternity. But for now, let me take a moment here and explain the CORRECT meaning of the Hebrew word “OLAM”, which is translated as “perpetual” here in the King James Version, and as “eternal” is some other modern translations of the Bible. According to the CONTEXT where we see the word “GENERATIONS”, the Hebrew word “OLAM” does NOT mean eternal, because the generations of Israel will come to an end. Human flesh is NOT eternal. Now, if God INTEND His words to mean for all eternity the He word and inspired Moses, the writer of Exodus to use the Hebrew word “quedem” as God Moses to use in Deuteronomy 33:27. But God inspired Moses to use the Hebrew word “Olam” in Exodus, which again also means for a LONG TIME ,and at any time. And it is translated as a LONG TIME in Isaiah 42:14.


Here is Isaiah 42:14.


“I have LONG TIME (OLAM) held my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.”


This is speaking of the wrath of God, which shall be poured out upon the GENERATION of the CHILDREN of ISRAEL, who did NOT perceive that the SIGN of the Sabbath REST was pointing to their DELIVERER, their MESSIAH, the CHRIST. And thus, only a REMNANT of the children of Israel will be sealed and kept alive in their mortal bodies to go into the 1000 year long day of REST to be taught of the Lord. ONLY the children of Israel and those left alive of the nations after the wrath of God will have MORTAL bodies and live from GENERATION to GENERATION during the Millennium. We, as faithful Christians, will already have ETERNAL BODIES and we will NOT be given in marriage to produce more GENERATIONS.

You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, it is ONLY those of us who are RESTING in the KNOWLEDGE of the TRUTH that Jesus, the Christ, the anointed of Yahweh, as our DELIVERER from the BONDAGE or SLAVERY to SIN who will be given eternal life AT the coming of Jesus. This is WHY we, as Christians, do not keep the physical day of REST because we know and understand why this SIGN of the Sabbath REST was given to the children of Israel for THEM to keep throughout THEIR generations for a LONG TIME.

If you compare H5331 you will see that it means a GOAL. The weekly Sabbath DAY of rest was given to ONLY the children of Israel for them to keep throughout their generations as a SIGN for a perpetual COVENANT where God has a GOAL in his mind for them to SEE and understand. And the end goal is for the children of Israel to see and understand that God created Jesus to be their Messiah who would DELIVER them from sin. And thus, the GOAL is for them to see that Yahweh is their DELIVER and that he has sent them a Savior to save them from their sins. The Sabbath was given as a SIGN pointing to Jesus as our TRUE Sabbath REST. That is why the Bible calls the Law of Moses a SCHOOLMASTER. The law contained in ordinances was given ONLY to the children of Israel UNTIL Christ came.

So then, the question in this study becomes, did Almighty God institute the Sabbath REST in Genesis 2:1-3 for all His creation to keep the SEVENTH DAY of the WEEK as a day of REST from Adam to all eternity?

Let us see what the Bible ITSELF teaches us when we interpret the Scriptures in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of God.


Genesis 2:1-3.


“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 

2. And on the seventh day, God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 

3. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”


Now most translations of Genesis 2:1-3 have the same translation as the King James Bible. But there are a few translations that come really close to the LITERAL word for word translation, which we will cover in a moment. 

But first I would like you to read Genesis 2:2 from God's Word Translation.


Genesis 2:2 from God’s Word Translation.


“BY the seventh day God had finished the work he HAD been doing. On the seventh day, he STOPPED the work he HAD been doing.”


Now when we read this translation we can see that God is NOT YET FINISHED will ALL of His creation. We KNOW this to be TRUE because of what the Bible teaches us in the Book of Revelation chapter 21 Almighty God Yahweh Himself shall create a NEW heaven and a NEW earth for His NEW creation of righteous people to dwell in for all eternity or for an AGE. For you see, the Bible says AGES to come for those who love him. And it may very well be that we will be doing different things in each of those AGES yet to come. But that is another study for another time. For now, let us look at oen AGE after the AGE of the 1000 year reign of Jesus.


Please read Revelation 21:1-5.


“And I saw a NEW heaven and a NEW earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 

2. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. (Now Jesus will dwell with us on the OLD earth during the DAY of the Lord when Jesus will rule and reign FOR Yahweh for a 1000 years. But after that AGE of the 1000 year long DAY of the Lord has ended, this OLD earth and heaven or solar system will pass away and melt with fervent heat as prophesied. And then Yahweh, after finishing His SEVENTH DAY of rest during that 1000 year reign of Jesus in the world yet to come, Yahweh will continue His work of CREATION and CREATE a NEW heaven and a NEW earth for His NEW creation to dwell in WITH Him and His Son Jesus for all eternity in the AGES yet to come. In other words, AFTER the next age to come, which is the SEVENTH 1000 year long DAY of the Lord in which Jesus will rule FOR Yahweh while Yahweh RESTS IN that SEVENTH day there will be no less than one more AGE)

4. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 

5. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make ALL things NEW. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are TRUE and faithful.


The TRUTH of the matter is that Yahweh is NOT finished WORKING on YOU yet. Yahweh has NEVER taken a day off and He will NOT REST UNTIL HIS SEVENTH 1000 year long DAY of rest while His Son Jesus rules and reigns FOR him.

So then, some Christians have been misled to wrongly believe that God has ALREADY rested ON the seventh day of a LITERAL creation WEEK having seven 24 hour days. If that inter[retation were true, then would have God not rested on EVERY seventh DAY of the WEEK? and would not we SEE examples of people resting on the seventh DAY of the week from Adam to Moses? The Bible itself says the DEATH reign from Adam to Moses. And that is why God ADDED the Law of Moses as a SCHOOLMASTER to lead the children of Israel UNTIL faith in Jesus Christ came. 

Let us now read a LITERAL word for word translation of Genesis 2:1-3 where we can clearly see that God's creation IS BEING FINISHED. And that is a PROPHESY of God when He IS CEASING from his work IN the SEVENTH day, and NOT that God has ALREADY RESTED ON the seventh day of creation. Think this through for yourself. What kind of an example for us would it be for God to just rest ONE day of the WEEK and then command us to rest EVERY Saturday for all eternity? The TRUTH of the matter is that HIS seventh day of rest is YET in the FUTURE and God has NOT YET RESTED on any day of the week. God simply ceased from the work that He HAD been doing.

Genesis 2:1-3 from a LITERAL translation.


“And they ARE BEING finished the heaven and the earth and all the host of them.

2. And Elohim He IS FINISHING IN the day the SEVENTH the work of him which he did and He IS CEASING IN day the SEVENTH from all the work of him which He did.

3. And he is blessing Elohim day of SEVENTH and he IS MAKING holy HIM that IN HIM (This IN HIM is a PROPHECY speaking of His SON Jesus being made Lord and Christ after the cross and resurrection, according to Acts 2:36, John 4:34, John 19:20, and Hebrews 12:2 ) has CEASED from all work of HIM which HE (Yahweh) created (HIM, His SON Jesus) to do of .


In other words, Almighty God CREATED His human Son, Jesus to do hs God and Father’s Will, even to die on the cross. And as his reward God set a joy before his to receive for his obedience of do all of his God and Father’s Will. So Yahweh’s TRUE REST is Yahweh resting is His Son, to FINISH the work of his God and Father Yahweh. Jesus could do NOTHING of himself DURING the days of his FLESH and it was God DWELLING in the Son of MAN. Jesus, who actually did the WORK of healing all who were oppressed of Satan, the Devil. And ever during the 1000 year reign of Jesus, Yahweh will still be WORKING putting all His enemies under the feet of Jesus. So God RESTING on the seventh DAY must mean resting with CONFIDENCE in the WORK that God had been doing.

Genesis 2:1-3 is actually a PROPHECY of Jesus accomplishing the task of OBEYING all the WILL of his God and Father even to suffer and die on the cross for our sins. The Sabbath DAY of the WEEK rest was given to the children of Israel to keep for them to keep throughout THEIR generations as a SIGN pointing to the TRUE Sabbath which is Jesus the Messiah.

WE are Yahweh's WORK of His NEW CREATION that His Son Jesus WILL be FINISHING IN the SEVENTH 1000 year long DAY of the Lord while Yahweh RESTS IN HIS SEVENTH day. For you see, God GAVE Jesus the authority to raise the dead in Jesus and give us eternal life to rule and reign WITH him for 1000 years in the world to come.

God is NOT finished with us YET. We have NOT actually received our NEW immortal glorified bodies of flesh and bone like Jesus has now. God is STILL YET MAKING us HOLY who are IN HIM, his SON Jesus the Christ, whom Yahweh CREATED to accomplish the task of redeeming mankind. We are yet still being conformed into the image of God's Son Jesus. Yahweh the Father is STILL YET working.

So then, God has NOT YET RESTED IN or during his SEVENTH day. If you read Genesis chapter 1 verses 1-31 you will see that the first SIX days of creation are DESCRIBED as a literal 24 hour day. We know this by God saying, “and the evening and the morning were the FIRST day”. And God continued saying that phrase for the second day, the third day, the fourth day, the fifth day and the sixth day. But in describing the SEVENTH day, God does NOT say the phrase, “and in the even and the morning of the seventh day”.

That is because the SEVENTH DAY is NOT a LITERAL 24 hour day. God inspired the men of old to write it this way so that we would see that Genesis 2:1-3 is a PROPHECY of His SON Jesus. Genesis 2:1-3 PROPHESIES how God will sanctify HIM, speaking of his creation of mankind, IN or DURING the SEVENTH 1000 year long DAY of the Lord who are IN HIM, speaking of being saved in His SON Jesus.

You see dear children of God, IN the seventh day of the Lord, WE who are already IN Jesus Christ NOW, during this present world or age, will be COMPLETED IN the world to come, which IS the SEVENTH 1000 year long DAY of Yahweh’s rest. But there will ALSO be the remnant of Israel and those left alive of the nations, who will be, being sanctified or made holy IN or DURING the SEVENTH 1000 year long day, LEARNING about Jesus and the Father. 

ONLY those who are RESTING IN Jesus NOW, in this present world, will be given eternal life in the world to come. The remnant of Jews and those who are left of the nations will go into the SEVENTH day in their MORTAL bodies to be TAUGHT of the Lord. In other words, they will learn what WE have already learned that the SCRIPTURES spoke of Jesus and the weekly Sabbath was a SIGN, pointing to Jesus the TRUE Sabbath, to CEASE from their OWN WORKS of self-righteousness done in our own strength.

So the SEVENTH day prophesied in Genesis has NOT YET come. God CEASED from the work he DID during the first six days of creation. But in truth, we are still IN the SIXTH day, speaking of the 1000 year long sixth day.

A day with the Lord is as 1000 years and 1000 years is as a day. So the six DAYS of creation is also a PROPHECY of the days of mankind and we are IN the SIXTH day where the SEVENTH 1000 year long day is quickly approaching.

The very days of creation themselves are TYPES, SHADOWS, and FIGURES of the true yet to come.

For example, God DIVIDED the LIGHT from the DARKNESS on the FIRST day of the week or the FIRST 1000 years. And that was both literal and a PROPHECY the would be fulfilled during the first 1000 year long day.

And during that FIRST 1000 year day, Adam ate from the tree of knowledge, his eyes were opened to DISCERN between GOOD and EVIL or LIGHT from DARKNESS. All through the Bible LIGHT is a figure of GOOD and DARKNESS is the shadow of EVIL.

 Then God divided the waters with a firmament on the SECOND day. It did not rain during the first 1000 year day. And God changed the way that the ground was watered during the second 1000 year long day. I was then that God made it rain for the first time. And it rained for forty days and forty nights at the flood of Noah during the SECOND 1000 year day.

God divided the waters and made the dry ground appear on the THIRD day. During the THIRD 1000 year day God divided the Red Sea and made the DRY ground appear.

God made two great lights on the FOURTH day, a greater light by day and a lesser light by night. During the FOURTH 1000 year day God sent two great lights out into the world. The greater light was Jesus and the lesser light was John the Baptist.

God created life in the waters on the FIFTH day. During the FIFTH 1000 year day the Holy Spirit represented by LIVING water was given to all who believe in Jesus.

God created man on the SIXTH day. At the end of the SIXTH 1000 year day, God's NEW creation of IMMORTAL RIGHTEOUS men and women will occur. We are IN the SIXTH day of creation presently.

God RESTED from all his works IN the SEVENTH day. 

During the SEVENTH 1000 year day WE, who believe on Jesus NOW, in this present world BEFORE the second coming of Jesus, will REST with Almighty God the Father from all our labors. The second death will have NO power over US, who are RESTING in Jesus now in this present world CEASING from our OWN WORKS of righteousness to become God's WORKMANSHIP.

The example of Adam himself was used to make a comparison between the NATURAL and the SPIRITUAL showing us that one day, yet in the future, the natural bodies of the saved will take upon that divine spiritual nature of immortality.

So do NOT let any weekly Sabbath DAY keeping Church denominations DECEIVE you dear children of God. Do not believe them when they say the Sabbath day is NOT a type or shadow of our future 1000 year day of  Yahweh’s REST. Do NOT believe them when they say that the REST we NOW have in Jesus is only speaking of CEASING from our OWN WORKS of righteousness done in our own strength. Do NOT believe them when they say God has give us His Holy Spirit to EMPOWER us to be able to KEEP all of the Law of Moses. Do NOT believe them when they say without the work of the LAW out faith is DEAD. They TWIST the Scriptures to their OWN DESTRUCTION.

Now those of you who are hardcore Saturday Sabbath DAY of the WEEK keeping Christians may not accept this truth right away that God has NOT YET rested, because the SEVENTH DAY is yet in the FUTURE. But I believe some of you are indeed seeing this truth that Genesis 2:1-3 is a PROPHECY of the TRUE Seventh 1000 year long day of Yahweh’s Sabbath rest during the Millennial reign of Jesus

But again, some may still yet argue that God commanded Adam to KEEP the seventh day of each and every week as a day of REST. And thus, the hardcore teachers of Sabbath DAY keep will dogmatically demand that all Christians must keep the seventh day of the week by resting. For you see, they INTERPRET Genesis 2:1-3 to dogmatically mean that God Himself RESTED on the SEVENTH DAY of the creation week And thus, they wrongly conclude that God MUST have given the FOURTH commandment to Adam. 

So then, my question to YOU is WHERE are the Scriptures to PROVE your THEORY?

I have shown to you the literal meaning of Genesis 2:1-3 of the original text. I have given you Scriptures that prove that God is still yet NOT finished with His NEW creation that He is PRESENTLY STILL yet working on right now during HIS sixth 1000 year long day of His creation. So now you show me the Scriptures where God SPECIFICALLY commanded Adam to REST on the seventh day of the week as God SPECIFICALLY commanded the children of Israel to keep the Sabbath throughout THEIR generations? 

Now if so be that there is such a Scripture, then ALL Saturday Sabbath-keeping Christians would be showing it to ALL other Christians as 100 % proof that ALL of God's people RESTED on the seventh day of the week, each and every week, beginning with Adam.

But since there is NO such Scripture, then your teaching that Christians must observe the SEVENTH day of the week is nothing but a THEORY that is NOT proven by SOUND Biblical teaching. 

And this I WILL prove to all, who are truly seeking the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of God and not just man's OPINION based ONLY on verses taken OUT of CONTEXT to TRY and prove that God instituted the Sabbath day in Genesis 2:1-3.

But as you have already seen dear children of God, that NOWHERE in Genesis 2:1-3 or anywhere else in the book of Genesis does Almighty God give Adam or anyone else a commandment to REST on the SEVENTH DAY of the week. And we see NO examples of anyone RESTING on the seventh day of the week UNTIL the children of Israel are TAUGHT HOW to rest on the seventh day in Exodus 16:4-33 and Deuteronomy 5:1-3.

There were only four things or four requirements that were given to Adam and Eve by God. And keeping the seventh day of the week was NOT one of those four things.


#1. --- Genesis 1:28.


“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.”

#2. --- Genesis 2:15.

“And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.”

#3. --- Genesis 2:16,17.


“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: 

17. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.”


#4. --- Genesis 2:19,20.

“And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. 

20. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam, there was not found a help meet for him.”


There is NO Biblical evidence of anyone keeping the seventh day of the week in all of Genesis and Exodus UNTIL Exodus chapter 16 where the children of Israel ONLY are TAUGHT for the very first time on HOW to REST on the seventh day of the week. We will cover this passage of Scripture in a moment.

Then in Nehemiah 9:13-15 we see further sound Biblical evidence that the commandment of keeping the Sabbath day was NOT given to anyone except the ONE nation of Israel AT Mount Sinai.


Nehemiah 9:13-15.


“You came down also upon mount Sinai, and spoke with them from heaven, and gave them right judgments, and true laws, good statutes, and commandments: 

14. And made KNOWN unto them YOUR holy Sabbath, and commanded them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses your servant: 

15. And gave them bread from heaven for their hunger, and brought forth water for them out of the rock for their thirst, and promised THEM that THEY should go in to possess the land which you had sworn to give THEM.”

And again, we see even more sound Biblical evidence that the weekly Sabbath was NOT given until AFTER God brought his people out of bondage in the land of Egypt.

Please read Ezekiel 20:9-12.


“But I wrought for my name's sake, that it should not be polluted before the heathen, among whom they were, in whose sight I made myself known unto them, in bringing them forth out of the land of Egypt.

10. Wherefore I caused them to go forth out of the land of Egypt and brought them into the wilderness. 

11. And I gave them my statutes and showed them my judgments, which if a man does, he shall even live in them. 

12. Moreover, ALSO I gave them my Sabbaths, to be a SIGN between me and THEM, that (Or SO THAT or IN ORDER THAT) they might KNOW that I am the LORD that SANCTIFY THEM.”


This agrees with Genesis 2:1-3 being a PROPHECY of Jesus where God is prophesying that he is sanctifying or making holy HIM that IN HIM. The first HIM are those who are IN HIM, Jesus Christ, who are being sanctified. Jesus is the SIGN of the NEW covenant and the words of the NEW covenant are written in the NEW Testament that WE may KNOW that it is Yahweh the Father who is sanctifying us IN HIM, IN his Son Jesus. 

But Jesus had not yet come to the children of Israel. God made the Old Covenant with the children of Israel for them to keep UNTIL their Messiah CAME. The Scriptures PROPHESIED of Jesus being the Messiah. Jesus said to the Jews, you seek eternal life and the SCRIPTURES speak of ME. But the Jews did not BELIEVE the words of their Messiah and were compelling the Gentile Christians that they MUST be circumcised and keep ALL the Law of Moses to be saved.

Genesis 2:1-3 from a LITERAL translation.


“And they ARE BEING finished the heaven and the earth and all the host of them.

2. And Elohim he IS FINISHING IN the day the SEVENTH the work of him which he did and he IS CEASING IN day the SEVENTH from all the work of him which he did.

3. And he is blessing Elohim day of SEVENTH and he IS MAKING holy HIM that IN HIM (The IN HIM is a PROPHECY speaking of His now glorified SON Jesus after the cross and resurrection) has CEASED from all work of HIM which HE (Yahweh) created (HIM speaking of His highly exacted human SON Jesus) to do of .”

In other words, God CEASED from the work He had been doing when He DWELT in His human Son with a MEASURE or the EARNEST of His Holy Spirit by GIVING the Son of MAN, Jesus the FULLNESS of His divine nature AFTER the cross and resurrection for the work that His ANOINTED human Son OBEYED to do. Yahweh gave His Son the task to accomplish on the cross with a JOY set before. And that joy was to be MADE the Lord of the Sabbath to rule FOR Yahweh for 1000 years in the world to come. And Yahweh CEASED for all His work that He had been doing when God made the first human being in His completed IMAGE. So Yahweh is longer working on HIM, speaking of His Son Jesus. For you see, the Son of man, Jesus, has already been made the FIRSTFRUITS of God. Jesus has already been made PERFECT. Jesus has already been GIVEN eternal life. But God is still working on us conforming us into the image of His Son Jesus. And IN the seventh day Yahweh WILL rest while Jesus rules and reigns FOR Yahweh to finish his NEW creation. Jesus is the VISIBLE IMAGE of the invisible one true God. And Jesus will show Israel and those left alive of the nations that the invisible Almighty God, the Father, is the one TRUE God by his executing the WRATH of Almighty God upon them.

One of the best Scriptural evidence found in the Old Testament is Yahweh's PROPHECY of His promise of making His NEW COVENANT with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, which is found in Jeremiah 31:31-33.


Jeremiah 31:31-33.

Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will make a NEW COVENANT with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah

32. NOT ACCORDING TO the covenant that I made with their fathers IN the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was a husband unto them, says the LORD: 

33. But this SHALL BE the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”


It does not get any clearer than that. How can you not see that the New Covenant is NOT the same as the Old Covenant? The Scripture plainly says, 


NOT ACCORDING TO the covenant that I made with their fathers IN the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake”


But yet Sabbath DAY of the WEEK keepers claim that the New Covenant IS according to the Old Covenant because they teach their followers to KEEP the Old Covenant. 

Sabbath keeping Christians also use Genesis 26:5 to try and prove that since Abraham kept the COMMANDMENTS of God. Then they wrongly conclude that Abraham keeping “COMMANDMENTS” that God gave to Abraham must mean the TEN Commandments. And to THEM their INTERPRETATION of Genesis 25:5 proves that the Ten Commandments, INCLUDING the seventh day Sabbath, were given BEFORE Mount Sinai because Abraham was BEFORE the law and Abraham kept the COMMANDMENTS of God.

Let us read Genesis 26:5 ALONE and OUT of CONTEXT first and then we will read it being LEFT IN its CONTEXT.

Genesis 26:5.


“Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”

Now on the surface, this one lone verse appears to be saying that Abraham himself kept God's charge, God's commandments, God's statues, and God's laws.

But when we keep this verse in the CONTEXT of where it is found we can see that it was the SEED of Abraham, who KEPT God's charge, God's commandments, God's statutes, and God's law.

Genesis 26:1-5.


“And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. 

2. And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell you of: 

3. Sojourn in this land and I will be with you, and will bless you; for unto you, and unto your seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I swore unto Abraham your father; (And in verse 4, we see the oath that God promised to Abraham to perform)

4. And I will make your SEED to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto your SEED all these countries, and in your SEED shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; (WHY? Why will God perform his oath to Abraham's SEED?)

5. BECAUSE that Abraham obeyed MY VOICE, (To offer up HIS only begotten son to ME) and (His SEED speaking of Jesus) kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”


Now let us read Genesis 26:5 from a LITERAL translation.


“In as much as Abraham he listened to voice of me, AND he (Abraham's SEED speaking of Jesus) IS KEEPING charge of me, (IS KEEPING) instructions of me (Also translated as commandments of me in other Bibles. The word commandments does NOT ALLOW meaning the TEN Commandments. And, it is the SEED of Abraham that IS KEEPING) statutes of me, and (IS KEEPING) laws of me.”


All nations shall be blessed NOT because Abraham or Isaac kept the commandments of God, but rather BECAUSE the SEED of Abraham, speaking of Jesus, kept ALL that Yahweh instructed him to do. Jesus obeyed ALL the will of God even to suffer and die on the cross for the sins of the world. The Scriptures speak of Jesus.

But the best of the best sound Scriptural evidence found in the Old Testament is Deuteronomy.

Deuteronomy 5:1-22.

“And Moses called all ISRAEL, (WHO did Moses CALL? Just read the words written. Moses called all of ISRAEL and NOT that Moses called ALL of MANKIND, but rather the word of TRUTH plainly states that Moses called all of ISRAEL) and said unto THEM, Hear, O ISRAEL, the statutes and judgments which I speak in YOUR ears THIS day, that you may LEARN them, and keep, and do them. (Here we clearly see that there was a time when NONE of Israel were ever commanded, instructed, taught or even suggested to keep the Sabbath day, the seventh day of the week. This is the very FIRST time that the TEN Commandments were given to anyone. The children of Israel had to LEARN them. We see from this passage of Scripture that the keeping of the Sabbath day was given only to the children of ISRAEL upon a certain day in time, at a certain place called mount Horeb or Mount Sinai.

Also, we know and understand from the New Testament that the law of God was ADDED, because of transgression. And that the law was ADDED only for a TIME until the PROMISE of the SEED came. We will go deeper into God's word further on in this study showing you those Scriptures. But for now, I just want to point out some very basic FACTS plainly stated in God's word of TRUTH in the OLD Testament that does NOT need to be INTERPRETED to know and understand what they mean.

In other words, the word of TRUTH states as FACT with NO interpretation needed that God gave the Sabbath day to the CHILDREN of ISRAEL for THEM   to keep throughout THEIR generations. And the REASON for the DAY of rest is that God gave it as a SIGN that THEY were in COVENANT relationship, which God made with THEM   for the very FIRST time, which God had NOT made with ANY of their FATHER'S of the children of Israel before this time on mount Horeb. To say this another way, I want you to see for yourself directly from God's word of TRUTH that God made NOT THIS covenant with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob or ANY of mankind BEFORE this time, when God made THIS covenant with the children of ISRAEL for THEM to keep throughout THEIR generations)

2. The LORD our God made a covenant with US in Horeb.

3. The LORD made NOT THIS COVENANT with our fathers, BUT with US, even US, who are all of US here ALIVE THIS day. (How can it get any clearer than this, dear children of God? God is specifically stating as fact with absolutely NO interpretation needed for anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear that THIS COVENANT, of observing the Sabbath as a SIGN of keeping THIS COVENANT, was made between God and the children of ISRAEL. The Scripture says that they were ALIVE THIS DAY and HEARD the voice of God in Mount Sinai or Mount Horeb from out of the midst of the fire. And the Scripture says that the Sabbath of resting on the SEVENTH day of the WEEK was NOT made with ANY of the FATHERS of Israel, whom we know to be Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

So this one verse alone should prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that God did NOT command, instruct, teach, or even suggest to Adam or any other human being to REST on the SEVENTH day of the week BEFORE this TIME, when God made this COVENANT with the children of ISRAEL ALONE in the TIME of MOSES)

4. The LORD talked with YOU face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire.

5. (I stood between the LORD and you at that TIME, to show you the word of the LORD: for you were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying,

6. I am the LORD your God, which brought you OUT of the land of Egypt, from the house of BONDAGE. (The very reason of WHY God gave the children of ISRAEL the Sabbath day was for them to REST or CEASE from their OWN WORKS and for them to know WHY they were GIVEN this REST of CEASING from their OWN WORKS from God. Yahweh wanted them to KNOW that the Sabbath was a SIGN of the COVENANT, between the children of Israel and God and for them to REMEMBER that it was HE who gave them REST. Yahweh wanted them to KNOW that he ALONE is the ONE TRUE God, who DELIVERED them from the BONDAGE of SLAVERY in the land of Egypt. God says REMEMBER the Sabbath or REMEMBER the REST that I GIVE to you. Remember that it was I the Lord your God, who delivered you out of the bondage of slavery and gave you REST.

Yes, the SEVENTH day has SIGNIFICANCE, but the main purpose of the Sabbath REST was for a SIGN to ISRAEL for them to REMEMBER back when they were once in BONDAGE of SLAVERY to WORK and how God SET them FREE and gave them REST.

This FREEDOM from BONDAGE of slavery to REST was a SIGN or a SHADOW pointing to Jesus their TRUE REST, who would deliver them and set them free from the BONDAGE of SIN. THEY had the physical SIGN of RESTING in or under the OLD COVENANT pointing to the TRUE spiritual SIGN of RESTING IN Jesus under the NEW COVENANT making it possible to be in a covenant relationship with God. Under the OLD Covenant Israel was given physical REST pointing to the TRUE SPIRITUAL REST we have in Jesus. So then, the OLDNESS of the LETTER of the law contained in ORDINANCES are a SHADOW of the SPIRIT of the law which we keep by FAITH in Jesus who FULFILLED the law contained in ORDINANCES)

7. You shall have none other gods before me.

8. You shall not make you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:

9. You shall not bow down yourself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

10. And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. (Now verse 10 here in the LITERAL translation is one of the KEYS to understanding that the OBSERVING of the Sabbath was a SHADOW pointing to Jesus, the SON OF the living God, Yahweh. Here is the LITERAL translation of verse 10. “and doing kindness to THOUSANDS to ones LOVING me and ones observing INSTRUCTIONS of HIM instructions of ME. Here we see TWO persons or TWO beings where the one is obeying the instructions, teachings or commandments of HIM, who is obeying the instructions, the teachings or the commandments of the WILL of ME, speaking of Yahweh, the one true God. The HIM is a hidden prophecy of the first coming of JESUS, the bread of heaven, or the TEACHINGS of God come down from heaven.

The teachings, the doctrine, the instructions, the commandments, the words of HIM, speaking of God's SON, Jesus, are the very self-same INSTRUCTIONS of Yahweh, the God, and the Father OF Jesus. So when God's chosen people ISRAEL took the Lord's NAME in VAIN by REJECTING the teachings of HIM, speaking of the teachings of Jesus, they were in fact rejecting the teachings and the WILL of Yahweh himself. For you see, it was Yahweh who APPOINTED or COMMISSIONED His human SON Jesus to become the salvation OF Yahweh to save the people from their BONDAGE of this world's system of SIN.

Thus, Yahweh did not CHANGE anything.  But rather, Yahweh merely DID what he said he would do. Yahweh PERFORMED what He prophesied in His word that He would do. So then, when Israel rejected Yahweh's so great a salvation, God then turned to THOUSANDS of Gentiles. For you see, God prophesied that the Gentiles would NOT take his NAME in VAIN by NOT rejecting the instructions of HIM. God gave commandments to His SON Jesus to give to his disciple, who gave these same words of Jesus to us. Some Jews and many Gentiles heard God's word being mixed with FAITH to BELIEVE that Jesus was a CLEAN sinless man. They believed that Jesus was a man APPOINTED by God to DELIVER all who believe and obey the INSTRUCTIONS or the teachings of HIM that believed that Jesus was the Messiah. They believed that the Scriptures spoke of Jesus as being the one PROPHESIED to come.

And that is why that we, as Christians, believe that Jesus IS our SIGN of KEEPING the NEW COVENANT and not a sign pointing to the future. But rather, our FAITH in Jesus is the MARK showing God that we believe and TRUST in His New Covenant. But the weekly Sabbath DAY was given to the children of Israel for THEM to keep throughout THEIR generations as a SIGN. Not as a MARK that they were keeping the Old Covenant. But rather a SIGN that was pointing to something in the future that God wants the children of Israel to SEE Jesus as their PERPETUAL COVENANT. God gave the weekly Sabbath REST as a SIGN pointing to Jesus for them to rest from all their works of the law contained in ORDINANCES. For you see, Jesus FULFILLED and thus ABOLISHED all of those ORDINANCES contained in the commandments, according to Ephesians 3:8-15 and Colossians 2:3-22.

So then, for Christians, Jesus has become our Sabbath REST where we REST in Jesus as our Savior. For you see, God commissioned His human Son, the Son of MAN, Jesus, to do all His will even to die on the cross for the sins of the world. God gave us LEAST commandments by His Son giving us just TWO commandments to keep under the New Covenant written in the New Testament. And God EMPOWERED us to keep those TWO commandment by CEASING from our OWN WORKS of righteousness to become Yahweh's WORKMANSHIP to conform us to the IMAGE of His Son Jesus)

11. You shall not take the NAME of the LORD your God in VAIN (Or take the NAME of the Lord in futility having no effectiveness, or not producing what the NAME of Yahweh was intended to bring about. ONLY those of us, who BELIEVE on the NAME of the Lord, the ONLY NAME given among men whereby we MUST be saved, shall be saved and NOT perish): for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that takes his NAME in VAIN(Taking God's NAME in VAIN means NOT BELIEVING on the NAME of the Lord. WHO is it that was GIVEN the NAME of the Lord? The NAME Jesus means Yahweh saves or the salvation OF Yahweh. Blessed is HE who comes in the NAME OF Yahweh. And many of Israel took the ONLY NAME given among men whereby we MUST be saved in VAIN by NOT BELIEVING on the NAME of Yahweh, which was GIVEN to his SON Jesus. The Sabbath was a SIGN pointing to the MESSIAH and most of the Jews took his NAME in VAIN by NOT believing that Jesus was their Messiah and CONTINUED in their OWN WORKS to try and establish their OWN righteousness. Either we do things Yahweh's way or we take his NAME in VAIN. Trying to keep BOTH the Old covenant and the New covenant at the same time is taking the Lord's NAME in VAIN!)

12. Keep (Or OBSERVE) the Sabbath day to sanctify it (Or sanctify HIM), as the LORD your God has commanded (Or has instructed) YOU. (God is speaking to the CHILDREN of ISRAEL. The LITERAL translation reads to OBSERVE the Sabbath day to HALLOW HIM as Yahweh your Elohim has INSTRUCTED you.” Again, the HIM here, in the literal translation, is a hidden prophecy of Jesus whom Israel was being shown to HALLOW or see as God's HOLY ONE when he came. And to HEAR the words of HIM, the teachings of God's SON Jesus under the NEW covenant. The Sabbath was a SIGN pointing to Jesus, God's Holy One. See Psalm 89:19.  “Then you (Yahweh) speak in vision to your holy one, and say, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.”  Now please keep in mind that this one passage of Scripture is not ALL the teachings or the instructions that Yahweh is giving to his people Israel. So we only see part of the hidden prophecy here in these verses PROPHESYING of HIM, referring to Jesus, being the TRUE REST, which is being foretold here to come, who Israel was to be WATCHING for or OBSERVING for to come by observing the Sabbath REST so that they would remember their DELIVERER who delivered them from bondage.

The word, keep or observe means to watch closely, to guard, to protect, to watch circumspectly. God hides things in his word for us to OBSERVE or to WATCH for in order to understand their PROPHESIED meaning of the TRUE which was to come.

In verse 15, God restates this instruction of observing the Sabbath REST as to REMEMBER the Sabbath REST and to REMEMBER WHY God instructed them to REST and CEASE from their OWN WORKS on the seventh day. So then, the thing that God wants the children of Israel to OBSERVE is that HE gave them REST from the BONDAGE they were under in the land of Egypt to give them REST. And again, the PHYSICAL DAY of rest was a SIGN pointing to their TRUE REST, their MESSIAH being the new PERPETUAL COVENANT, according to Isaiah 42:6.

Now, this does not mean that the seventh day is not significant. This PATTERN of SIX, then comes the SEVENTH is repeated in the book of Revelation pointing to the DAY of the Lord, which is the SEVENTH 1000 year long DAY of the Lord, in which the ARM of Yahweh will rule and reign FOR Yahweh for 1000 years or during the SEVENTH day, WHILE Yahweh RESTS IN the SEVENTH 1000 year long DAY of the Lord, HIS Sabbath.

But the main point is that God wanted ISRAEL to REMEMBER their BONDAGE in Egypt and how HE ALONE SET them FREE from the BONDAGE of WORK for them to REST physically.  God gave the weekly Sabbath REST as a SIGN so that they would be perceiving or OBSERVING their true spiritual REST in HIM who was prophesied to come as their DELIVERER or Messiah to given them SPIRITUAL REST to their SOULS.

The very word Sabbath means REST. Jesus is our DELIVERER from the BONDAGE of SIN and we REST in Jesus as our DELIVERER. Can you not see these parallels between WHY the Sabbath was given to ISRAEL to REMEMBER their DELIVERANCE pointing to Jesus being our DELIVERER in whom we REST IN as our SAVIOR?

Now if so be that God himself intended for man to place all the focus of the Sabbath, which means REST, to be placed on the SEVENTH day as opposed to RESTING and having their eyes on Yahweh as their DELIVERER from BONDAGE, then God would have named this day of the week accordingly by calling it the “shebiyi” day, which means the SEVENTH day. This Hebrew word for seventh comes from the root word “shebit”, which means CAPTIVITY. So I agree that there is significance with the seventh day, but the significance of the Sabbath of WHY God gave the children of Israel the Sabbath was a SIGN to CEASE from their OWN WORKS of the LAW contained in ORDINANCES to point to the NEW Covenant of CEASING from their OWN WORKS of RIGHTEOUSNESS in their own strength, that were FILTHY RAGS in the eyes of God due to BOSATING.

But once the Jews, who received Jesus as their Lord and Savior came to UNDERSTAND that Jesus was their Passover LAMB, then they CEASED to keep the Passover feast. For you see, they now understood that it was a SHADOW pointing to the TRUE Passover LAMB being FULFILLED in Jesus. 

And when the Jews, who received Jesus, UNDERSTOOD that the physical circumcision in the flesh was a SHADOW pointing to Jesus being our TRUE SPIRITUAL circumcision, then they no longer COMPELLED the Gentile Christians to be circumcised in the flesh. 

And in the same way, when the Jews, who became Christians, UNDERSTOOD that the PHYSICAL keeping of a WEEKLY day of REST was a SHADOW pointing to their TRUE REST, then they no longer kept the SEVENTH DAY of the WEEKLY Sabbath day of REST. They understood that it was a SIGN pointing to Jesus being the NEW SIGN of the NEW Covenant IN whom they were to REST.

The word “Sabbath” means REST. And the physical rest on a DAY of the week was a SIGN, or the SHADOW pointing to our TRUE SPIRITUAL REST which we have in Jesus where we are RESTING in the TRUTH that Jesus has DELIVERED us from the BONDAGE of SIN.

Under the LAW of the OLD Covenant, no one can ever KNOW and have PEACE and TRUE REST that they ARE SAVED. 

But under the law of FAITH and the law of GRACE we can REST ASSURED that we ARE SAVED. And we can REST knowing that God is yet working in us through His Holy Spirit. We can REST know that we are HIS workmanship and NOT our OWN workmanship, where we have NO TRUE REST and NO assurance of peace that we are being good ENOUGH to please God to be saved. Let us continue with Deuteronomy 5:1-22)

13. Six days YOU shall labor (Or SERVE. The Hebrew word here literally means to be kept in bondage for six days. God is telling us how many days MANKIND will be in bondage to WORK. When Adam sinned he was cast out of the garden of God to WORK by the sweat of his brow. AFTER six days or 6000 years of work, then ONLY those OF mankind, who are RESTING IN Jesus, will be given REST IN the SEVENTH 1000 year long DAY of the Lord. But those NOT IN Jesus Christ will NOT receive eternal life to rest. The second death will have no power on ONLY those who are IN Jesus in the SIX days. So the six days are also a figure or a type) and do all your work: (Now keep in mind that these verses are prophecies referring to the children of ISRAEL and all, who do NOT accept and KEEP the SIGN of God's SPIRITUAL TRUE REST under God's NEW COVENANT, which can ONLY be received or ENTERED INTO by FAITH in His SON Jesus. UNBELIEVING ISRAEL will NOT enter into their rest AFTER the SIXTH day has been completed. But they will enter into the SEVENTH 1000 year long day of the Lord to WORK and the only feast day that will be kept from year to year during the millennium is the feast of tabernacles. And the feast of Tabernacles will ONLY be kept BY the children of Israel and those that will be left alive of the nations after the wrath of God.

But WE, as Christians, who ENTER through the DOOR of our REST the moment we BELIEVE on God's SON Jesus will be granted to eat of the tree of eternal life at the very moment Jesus returns to execute the wrath of God. So, we will be ruling WITH Jesus during the Millennium. Jesus will rule and reign as the ARM of the Lord FOR Yahweh during the SEVENTH 1000 year day of the Lord. And ONLY we Christians who are RESTING in Jesus now in this present world as our Lord and Savior shall rule and reign WITH Jesus over the remnant of Israel and those who will be left alive of the nations after the wrath of God. For you see, those who call upon the NAME of the Lord to be saved AT the coming of Jesus will be saved alive in their MORTAL bodies. In other words, those who will be saved AT the coming of Jesus will be AFTER the rapture of the church. And that is why they will NOT receive ETERNAL LIFE to rule and reign with Jesus. They will miss the boat so to speak. And thus, they will receive eternal life at the END of the Millennium if they endure unto the end to be saved.

A REMNANT of Israel will be saved alive in their mortal bodies that will be bodies to WORK during the seventh day of Yahweh's rest and time of refreshing. We will work also, but we ONLY or we alone shall be given our COMPLETED spiritual rest of ETERNAL LIFE resting assured that the second death will have NO power over US who REMAIN resting in Jesus unto death or unto that great and notable day of our Lord come. We still have REST now in this present world, but we still bear a LIGHT burden. The REST in Jesus is EASY, but it is also called a LIGHT burden, which means we are free from all the ceremonial laws, but we must still yet obey all the MORAL laws of God. And ALL the MORAL laws are written in the NEW Testament under the NEW covenant. 

Do you think even for a minute that God LEFT OUT something as vital as receiving eternal life from his NEW covenant? The WORDS of the NEW covenant are the words written in the NEW Testament of the Bible. So if you follow the teachings of the NEW Testament to obey THEM, then you have Yahweh's PROMISE that you will receive eternal life in the world to come. You do not have to FEAR that the Holy Spirit may have MISSED something forgetting to have the apostles and disciples of Jesus to write down a record of what Jesus taught them to teach to us)

14. But the SEVENTH day is the Sabbath OF the LORD your God: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your ox, nor your ass, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates; that your manservant and your maidservant may REST as well as you.

15. And REMEMBER that you WERE a servant in the land of Egypt (Or REMEMBER that you were ONCE a bond SLAVE in the land of Egypt)AND (REMEMBER ALSO) that the LORD your God brought you OUT thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out ARM: THEREFORE (Or for this very reason is WHY) the LORD your God commanded you to KEEP the Sabbath day. (If you do not understand the REASON of WHY God commanded the children of ISRAEL to KEEP the Sabbath day as a day of REST throughout THEIR generations, then you will not understand that the Sabbath day was a SHADOW pointing TO the ARM of the Lord. The ARM of the Lord is a FIGURE of God’s Messiah like the Wisdom in God’s MIND is a FIGURE of God Messiah  who was PROPHESIED to be raised up from among the people to DELIVER God's people ISRAEL from the BONDAGE and slavery of SIN.

Again, we will expound on this deeper further on in this study of God's word, but for now please know and understand that the PROPHECY of Jesus is hidden in this verse and many other verses throughout the Old Testament. In Isaiah 40:10 we learn that the ARM of Yahweh is a prophecy of Jesus DELIVERING mankind from their sin and the LITERAL meaning of “brought out” of the bondage of Egypt is in the PRESENT tense reading that God IS BRINGING his people ISRAEL out of bondage.

Isaiah 40:10.

“Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.”


When Jesus comes again his REWARD will be with him to give to every man ACCORDING to his of her WORKS.


Please read Revelation 22:11-15.


“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
            12.  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his WORK shall be.
            13.  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
          14.  Blessed are they that DO HIS COMMANDMENTS that they may have RIGHT to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
           15.  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whore mongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves AND makes a lie.”


Please read the study called Dd-25. What does REVELATION 22:14 TRULY Mean? 

Do you think for one minute that Almighty God Yahweh would have given His Son Jesus something to teach his Apostles and disciples that was of Satan the Devil?

Absolutely not! Jesus ONLY taught what he was told or shown by Yahweh Himself to teach us, his CHURCH. Jesus said that his doctrine or teaching was NOT his OWN doctrine. Yahweh prophesied that He would raise up a prophet among the people of Israel, which we KNOW is Jesus. And Yahweh commanded in those prophecies for the children of Israel to hear HIS WORDS, the words of Jesus. Why would God make a NEW Covenant if He intended us to keep the OLD Covenant?

Now if so be that the early church kept the OLD Covenant as the Jew, then why did the Jews persecute the Jewish Christians? God DELIVERED His people Israel out of bondage in the land of Egypt to given them the TEN Commandments engraved in STONE for the FIRST time. The two tablets of STONE are also FIGURES. The FIRST set of stone tablets was thrown down and BROKEN by Moses who is a FIGURE of Jesus throwing down and breaking the OLD Covenant to take it out of the way. The second set of STONE tablet represent the NEW PERPETUAL COVENANT and the STONE that the builders would REJECT. Jesus is the chief corner STONE and the only TRUE FOUNDATION that saves.

Many Bible scholars agree that “EGYPT” is a type or figure for the world and more precisely speaking of Satan, the god of this present world system. God is NOT FINISHED WORKING with his people ISRAEL. God is NOT   RESTING for it is NOT the SEVENTH day of the Lord, which is yet to come.

Below are the six MORAL laws of God, which are ALL being kept in the NEW Covenant by our OBEDIENCE to walk in LOVE toward one another as God's SON Jesus had COMMANDED us to do.

So by RESTING in the words of Jesus, his teachings, INSTRUCTIONS or COMMANDMENTS of Jesus to OBEY HIS commandments under the NEW covenant, then we ARE indeed keeping ALL the law of God. Jesus is the SIGN of the NEW covenant. Jesus did NOT abolish any of the six following MORAL laws of God.)

16. Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you; that your days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with you, in the land which the LORD your God gives you.

17. You shall not kill.

18. Neither shall you commit adultery.

19. Neither shall you steal.

20. Neither shall you bear false witness against your neighbor.

21. Neither shall you desire your neighbor's wife, neither shall you covet your neighbor's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is your neighbors.

22. These words the LORD spoke unto all YOUR assembly IN the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.”


So again, WHO does the Bible ITSELF clearly state that God gave THIS COVENANT, the FIRST Covenant or the OLD Covenant to? The Bible ITSELF teaches us that God gave the TEN Commandments to the children of Israel on two stone tablets at the same time that He gave them the Law of Moses. So again, WHY was the Law of Moses given for THEM to keep throughout THEIR generation, and which was NOT given to their FATHERS Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob before them?

If your answer is the children of ISRAEL, then you are reading the Scriptures with your spiritual eyes OPEN. And if your answer to the second question is that the children of Israel would OBSERVE or DISCERN that Yahweh is their DELIVERER as to WHY He commanded them to REST on the seventh DAY of the WEEK, then God has opened your eyes to the TRUTH of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ.

But if your answer is ALL of mankind, then you are reading the Scriptures with the eyes of your church DENOMINATION, and you are NOT trusting in the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you into all TRUTH.

Let us continue. Also as you may have noticed I emphasized the word COVENANT in the verses of Scripture that I have quoted above. I did this so that you will see from God's word for yourself that the KEEPING of the Sabbath was a SIGN that the children of ISRAEL would OBSERVE or DISCERN WHY God commanded them to rest on the seventh DAY of the WEEK.Or more precisely, the children of Israel being IN or UNDER the first or Old COVENANT that God gave to them to keep throughout their generations was a SIGN to THEM to be looking for their Messiah.

In other words, the ONE instruction to REST on the SEVENTH day was a SIGN, which God wanted the children of Israel to SEE or understand that this REST was given to them to REMEMBER that it was Yahweh who DELIVERED them. So to REMEMBER the Sabbath is a hidden prophecy to remember to look for their Messiah. They were instructed to brought remember that is was Yahwhe who brought them OUT of the BONDAGE of slavery and that it was HE who gave them REST.

To say this another way. the REASON of WHY this OLD COVENANT was given to the children of Israel was for the children of ISRAEL to see and understand its TRUE meaning, which was to POINT Israel TO the NEW COVENANT made or established by the shed blood of God's SON Jesus, the MESSIAH. The Scriptures spoke of JESUS for all who want to receive eternal life in the world to come.

In the Words of Jesus ONLY, Jesus himself said to the JEWS that they searched the Scriptures, the TORAH, the entire OLD Testament for ETERNAL LIFE and Jesus said that the Scriptures spoke of HIM. ALL of the OLD Testament points to the NEW COVENANT established in the shed blood of Jesus the Christ, the Son of the living God.


John 5:39.


Search the Scriptures; for in them you THINK you have eternal life: and they are they which testify of ME.


So then, you can see dear child of God that the TRUTH will stand with or without the teachings of Paul. In other words, using only the OLD Testament it is clearly seen by anyone with eyes to see that the keeping of the seventh day of the week was a SIGN for a PERPETUAL Covenant. Yahweh made the Old Covenant with the children of Israel for THEM to keep throughout THEIR generations for THEM to see, know, and understand that the Sabbath was a SHADOW pointing to Jesus as their TRUE rest and SIGN of the NEW PERPETUAL COVENANT between them and God as well as OUR sign referring to Gentile Christians between us and God. Again, WHY would God promise the children of Israel and NEW COVENANT that is NOT like the Old Covenant IF the Old Covenant was a ETERNAL Covenant? You are being DECEIVED Satan’s doctrines of devils, according to 1 Timothy 4:1-6. 

Now I had intended to include another section in this study cover all the arguments used by some seventh day of the week Saturday Sabbath keeping Christians to try and support their teaching that Paul is a false TEACHER because Paul's teachings supposedly CONTRADICT the teachings of Jesus. But due to the length of this study already and to the length of all the arguments and the Biblical evidence that refutes those arguments, I decided to make it a separate study called Dd-73. Do the Teachings of PAUL Contradict Jesus? 

Mostly, it is only SOME seventh DAY of the WEEK Sabbath-keeping Christians that call themselves Jesus words ONLY Christians. And they teach that all Christians should keep all the Law of Moses, arguing the the Apostle Paul is a FALSE teacher. At first they tried to INTEPRET the words of Paul o FIT their own preconceived belief that God would never give TEN Commandments and then ABOLISH only the FOURTH commandment without telling us first. But when they found that they could not REFUTE the teachings of Paul they fell into a DEEPER deception of Satan to HATE the Apostle Paul. And the Jesus words ONLY Christians are the ones that are teaching that Paul's teachings contradict Jesus. And some of them, but not all of them, hate Paul with a passion even calling Paul, Satan, or that it was Satan, who appeared to Paul and not Jesus, who appeared to Paul. And they say that Paul was the one BLASPHEMING God? Sounds to me like THEY are the ones speaking blasphemy by saying that it was NOT Jesus, who appeared to Paul on the road to Damascus and that it was Satan himself, who appeared to Paul. And, according to Mark they are in DANGER of hell fire unless they REPENT and come back to the TRUTH of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ and STOP keeping the law of commandments CONTAINED in ORDINANCES.

I implore ALL seventh DAY of the WEEK and even the FIRST day of the week Sabbath-keeping Christians to read the study called Dd-5. What Does Contained in ORDINANCES Mean?

Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you continue to read ALL the studies that I gave links to throughout this study concerning this subject on Sabbath TRUTH.

My heartfelt prayer is that all Christians RETURN to the TRUE FOUNDATION of the church that is taught by the very Apostles of Jesus in the first century. So let us all come into the UNITY of the faith and return to what Jesus and his Apostles taught us in SIMPLICITY in the New Testament.

Some Sabbath-keeping Christians CLAIM that the early church kept the Sabbath as the Jews, but I assure you that the early first-century church was accustomed to gathering together BEFORE the light of daybreak on the FIRST day of the week that THEY called the Lord's day.

Please read all the studies linked within this study and all the studies linked below. This study was just the TIP of the iceberg of exposing the ERRORS of interpretation made by the Saturday seventh day of the week Sabbath-keeping churches, and the Sunday first day of the week Sabbath-keeping Christians. All of the studies listed under the subject heading >>>Dd-0. What is the TRUE Sabbath?<<< And also read Dd-20. Did The Early Church KEEP the Sabbath day to learn the truth of what the early church believed.

Thanks again for reading and may God bless you richly as you continue to seek the truth of the whole word of Almighty God.

 

Your Brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.
