(Before It's News)

Ex 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

Should Christians keep the Sabbath < link

At the cross, Christ abolished in his flesh the Old Testament law of commandments contained in ordinances. Christ also made it possible for all of mankind to become the new house of Israel (Math 15:21-28, Eph 2:15).

Christians keep the Sabbath

Eph 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

The law of commandments contained in ordinances, does not pertain to the New Covenant Sons of God. Christians keep the Sabbath, or attempt to keep it, only because of a misunderstanding of God’s Word. (1 John 3:1-2).

2 Cor 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth…

The new law of Christ is not of a carnal commandment, but He is the means unto eternal life (Heb 7:16).

Eph 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

All who are in Christ Jesus are the True Israel of God (Gal 6:15-16).

Should Christians keep the Sabbath, even though Jesus never commanded anyone to keep it?

Christ criticized the scribes and pharisees for all of their vain rules regarding what could be done on the Sabbath.

If Christ said the Sabbath was made for all men, then it would be lawful that Christians keep the Sabbath. The truth is that the Sabbath was made for a certain group of people, and for a set period of time (Mark 2:27).

Christians keep the Sabbath

How can Christians keep the Sabbath when they are under the New Law of Christ.

Col 2:14 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;

Is it possible that Christians keep the Sabbath purely out of ignorance?

Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

When so-called Christian denominations follow after the teachers of fables, they are involved in a system of religious beliefs and rituals. This is the identification of a Christian Cult (2 Tim 4:3-4).

Must Christians keep the Sabbath? The answer is absolutely not.

  • I disagree. I think it important to keep the Sabbath for its one of the 10 commandments from the Most High. they were etched in stone thereby never changing. The Most High never changes is the same from beginning to end. Yeshua did not come to change the law. He stated that himself and He kept the Sabbath. So are we not to be like him.

  • Ignorance is not reading the entire bible . God told Moses the Sabbath was forever ( Exodus 31:15-17 ) . Isaiah 66:22-24 as the new Kingdom is set up on earth when all men shall worship before the Lord as the come from one new moon to another and from one Sabbath to another Sabbath . Then in Ezekiel chapters 44 and 46 it tells of the Prince of the covenant meaning the Covenant that GOD said would be a sign for those that truly loved HIM would be honoring HIS Sabbath . The Prince walks into the eastern gate which has been closed since Ezekiel and bring forth His sacrifice to GOD on the Sabbath . And NO Jesus did not die on the Sabbath . According to John Jesus was God . Ezekiel and Revelations tells that GOD is the King . Jesus was not a son of man , but a son of woman spoken about in Genesis . Jesus not being of Joseph linage was of Mary’s linage . Mary was not of the tribe of Judea . But was of the tribe of Levite . Elisabeth her cousin was married to the High Preist . In order for her to marry him she had to be a Levite . Cousin means you have the same grand parents . The parents were either of brothers or sisters to each other . The grand parents had to be Levites in order for Elisabeth to be a Levite . Mary was a Levite ! Jesus was a Levite ! This is why He is called our High Preist . The son of man Jesus spoke about in Matthew 24 is the same person called up by GOD and anointed a Daniel and Revelations talks about . Then He is crowned and sent back to earth . Also take note GOD called Ezekiel in many of his chapter son of man ( meaning son of Adam ) . Enoch states that the son of man ( not Ezekiel ) would be born in the last days . The Catholics removed the book of Enoch from the bible for many reasons . The greatest being it points them out as the anti Christ . Many believe the signs of the time show that the gentile rule is almost over . That being said the person born of a man making him the son of that man will already be alive and waiting for GODs call up ! In Matthew Jesus said and He ( not I ) will come with His ( not my ) angels to call His ( not my ) elect from the 4 corners of the earth . Matthew 24:5 and Luke 21:8 Jesus says that He is not the Christ ( an anointed man ) spoken of by Enoch and the other prophets . Ezekiel points out that the son of man or the prince will bring the world back into subjection to GOD the King . And then GOD the King will then rule over HIS people . Revelation also brings this out that GOD does not come down to reside with man until after the thousand year reign by this son of man ! Then HE ( GOD ) brings down HIS New Jerusalem . But I stated all this to say the Prince will restore the Sabbath and the sacrifice again . Seems He is the only one sacrificing , maybe to remind Him that He too is human , but anointed with GODs power ! Another statement you made was Jesus fulfilled and did away with the law . Jesus said I have not come to do away with the law —————– but to fulfill it . Meaning to show that it could be followed perfectly which mankind could not do . Then once proving HIS perfection HE then could become the sacrifice that GOD stated in the old testament that HE would become and would buy Israel and pay for their sins . And for anyone else that would put HIM first and follow HIS laws . So has the Sabbath been done away with ? NO ! The new testament said the disciples gathered on the first day of the week . For what ? It said to count the money ! Gathered when ? The day before . And when was that ? The Sabbath after their worship day ! They believed that counting money was working , so they put it off till the next day , which was Sunday . The Catholics changed your Sabbath day of worship back in 325 AD . These are the ones the bible stated would change times , laws and seasons . Another Example , when was Jesus really born ? It was not on the summer soloist , the day of the sun god bail worship which the Catholics worship ( December 25 ) . It is said between late March and earlyApril was His birth date . And GOD also said HIS commandments was also everlasting .Funny thing if the law was done away with , why do you still demand Christians to follow them after being saved . You say because it’s pleasing to GOD . What a funny way of saying keep the commandments !

  • destine2Bcondemned

    You just refuse to understand – WOW.

    The Sabbath Day was put in place on the 7th and last day of creation week — and God clearly stated all was PERFECT, all things were very good.

    God does not create trash to be pitched in the can.

    But “you” in your brilliants, brilliants gained by speaking in satanic noise, —- are calling God a liar !!!!

    Do you really believe God will allow you to continue calling HIM a LIAR ?

  • Should Christians keep the Sabbath, even though Jesus never commanded anyone to keep it?

    Christians keep the Sabbath

    How can Christians keep the Sabbath when they are under the New Law of Christ.

    Col 2:14 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;

    Is it possible that Christians keep the Sabbath purely out of ignorance?

    Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    • “…even though Jesus never commanded anyone to keep it?”

      I guess you never read the Old Testament.

      Or do you think that was someone OTHER than Jesus speaking as GOD in the first three-fourths of the Word of God?

      Honest question, friend…

      • Luke 8:17-18 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

        Sadly, many who base their understanding and faith on the doctrines of men, will have their false sense of security stripped away. Faith and hope that is based on self righteousness and deceit is a deadly belief system unto damnation.

        Matt 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity.

        Blessed are those who are persecuted for the Gospel of Christ, for they will inherit the kingdom of heaven (Matt 5:10). This is not a popular verse for those that subscribe to the teaching of the masters of deception regarding the pre tribulation rapture.

        Matt 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

        As little children we depend on our father. Jesus declared that He and the Father were one. The Law and the Prophets were until Jesus, who is the only way, and is the only truth.

        It is only through Christ that we can have eternal life (John 3:15).

        Matt 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom (through Christ) shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

      • We are not under the old testament law of bondage

        We are not under the old testament law of bondage, but the law of liberty which is in Jesus Christ our Messiah. The covenant of Christ was established upon better promises (Heb 8:6).

        James 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well.

        When we bear one another’s burdens, we fulfill the law of Christ (Gal 6:2).

        Six of the commandments under the old law were unto doing no harm to others. The commandment of Loving others is much greater than these.

        The second commandment of the new the law of Christ is fulfilled in this; thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself (Gal 5:14). This was not realized by most under the Old Testament law, as it was spiritually discerned.

        Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

        We are not under the Old Testament law, but the law of Christ’s grace. To claim to be under the Old Testament law when we have access to the new law of Christ, is self righteousness unto death.

        Gal 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

        Those of the religions of judaism and christianity, who claim to be under the Old Testament law do not have a personal relationship with the creator Christ the King.

        To claim righteousness by attempting to follow the works of the law without faith was and still is dead works.

        Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

        We need to be led by the spirit of truth, which declares that we are not under the Old Testament law of bondage, but the law of Christ wherein we can have liberty.

        Gal 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

        Again it is not at all about religious persuasions or doctrines of men, but a new life in Christ. This can only be understood by those who are taught of the Holy Spirit, which is given to the faithful who come to Jesus as little children.

        Gal 6:16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

        The Israel of God represents all believers who are in Christ.

        • destined

          “Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.”

          Destined those that continue offering animal sacrifices make the sacrifice of Jesus Christ of no effect, no animal sacrifice justifies anyone – none – only that one sacrifice by Christ pays the penalty of death for our sins.

          Gal 5: 18 But if ye be lead of the Spirit ye are not under (the penalty of death imposed by the law).

          If you are not lead of the Spirit then you are still condemned to death by the Law, you are still “under” the sentence of death.

          If you have not the Spirit then the sacrifice of Christ does not apply to you.

      • Destined

        Moses, Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu plus 70 elders of Israel “SAW” the GOD of Israel.

        So since Christ stated no man has seen the Father just WHO was it that the 74 saw??

        Jesus Christ IS the God of the Old Testament, it was HIS finger that wrote the 10 Commandments is stone — they are HIS LAWS, and the Sabbath was made by Christ which is why HE IS LORD (Master) of the Sabbath.

        Jesus Christ is that ROCK that followed the children for 40 years.

        9Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: 10And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. 11And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also — they saw God,—-and did eat and drink.

        44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

        46 —-Not that any man hath seen the Father, —save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

  • Destined,

    Lets take a hard look at what you are putting forth as “truth” and see if it will stand up to logic and scripture.

    Let’s look at 3 of your points:

    Was the Sabbath done away?

    What is Col 2: 16 actually stating

    And IS the Old Testament Law a harsh “bondage”?

    The Sabbath was made on the 7th day of creation week as a day of rest for MAN — there were no Jews or any of the 12 tribes of Jacob present on the 7th day — only one man Adam. Thus the Sabbath is NOT a Jewish day – it is not a “tradition of man” it is a day made HOLY by GOD FOR MAN –from day 7 and was included in the Commandments as a blessing not a burden.

    The Sabbath is a day of rest from the labor of working to feed and care for our families, God gave us a “day off” – WITH PAY –. Remember on the 6th day He gave them food for 2 days.

    By promoting the false doctrine that Christ took away the Day of Rest YOU are stating that Christ now demands we work for 7 full days just to get by.

    Thanks but no thanks –

    Also the Sabbath is a sign of just WHO God’s people are, only the chosen of God keep the Sabbath. “It is a sign between you and ME through out your generations.”

    Christ and the Apostles kept the Sabbath —- I follow Christ.

    Colossians 2: 16

    Let’s use the entire statement not just a piece.

    16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

    Paul is stating the Sabbath and Holy Days are shadows of event to come, they are the major events in God’s Plan of Salvation beginning with Passover which is our debt of death being paid for ‘some’ by Jesus Christ shed blood.
    And if you will notice the word IS was added thus Paul is stating let no man judge you BUT only the Body of Christ,

    18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

    Paul is not at all talking about the Torah, he is talking about man’s religions.

    19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

    20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,

    Why are you subject to “rudiments of the world” i.e. worldly ordinances, we are only subject to GOD’s Law. Why are you living as though you must obey worldly ordinances?

    I am accounted as “dead” , my debt for transgressing God’s Holy Law was paid BY Christ shed blood – I died with Christ when I was baptized. I am dead in Christ and I will be resurrected to eternal life with Christ.

    21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;

    22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?

    After what? The commandments and doctrines of MEN — NOT GOD!

    23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

    In effect what Paul is saying; do not let gentiles or others condemn you in how you eat or drink or how you keep the Sabbath or Holy Days – but – let only the Body of Christ.

    In Isaiah 28 it states the Word is written to cause folks to fall backwards and be taken!

    Now how can a HOLY LAW that is Holy, Just and Good be a burden??

    How is the probation of murder, fornication and theft a burden? It is a burden only to a fornicating liar that commits murders as it condemns them to death.

    What is the purpose of God’s Law?

    To allow God to bless HIS PEOPLE! God does not prosper law breakers!

    1Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up [any] image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I [am] the LORD your God. 2Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I [am] the LORD. 3If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; 4Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. 5And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. 6And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make [you] afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. 7And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. 8And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. 9For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant with you. 10And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because of the new. 11And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you. 12And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people. 13I [am] the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.

    And what is the result of not obeying the voice and commands of GOD?

    14But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments; 15And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, [but] that ye break my covenant: 16I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you. 18And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. 19And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass: 20And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.

    The burden of not obeying God is explained in verses 14 – 20 and if not obeying continues then those that refuse to obey are condemned to death.

    The “burden” of the Law, of transgressing God’s Holy Law — is DEATH — and Christ by shedding His blood paid that certain penalty for those that repent of transgressing that HOLY LAW.

    The Law is not a burden but death is!

    The Law is not SIN — it is HOLY JUST AND GOOD.

    7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? —– God forbid. —–Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.

    8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead.

    9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

    10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.

    The commandment to life — I found cause me to die.

    11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.

    I was deceived into sinning and those sins slew me thus I am under the condemnation of the law.

    12 Wherefore the law (Torah) is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

    At the time Paul wrote this there was no New Testament writings!!!! There was no New commandments of Christ’ i.e. the ones from the Torah which you claim are new???

    The two are the foundation of the 10 and the entire Word of GOD.

    I realize you must not accept the above as it destroys your house of cards.

    • destine

      Have you even noticed? Paul is talking about one of the 10, “thy shall not covet”.

      I guess he did not get the message that the 10 have been replaced by the 2. Destined you are working over time doing your best to trash the Torah i.e. the Law which Paul states is Holy Just and good.
      It is you that are deceived not Paul, Paul knows full well the 10 Commandments are eternal.

      Destine is the Sabbath the Commandment you hate the most? Is that why you have concocted your false doctrine?

  • destined

    Is it possible for you to address even one single point disproving your doctrine using sound clear scripture and logic?

    No !! and you will never even attempt to do so.

    You will continue to use fragments of scriptures and twisted scriptures because that is all you have.

    Your hatred of even the thought of having to obey GOD is the source of your false doctrine.

    When you cast away the LAW you are in effect rejecting the authority of GOD over you — just like Satan has done.

    God will never allow a single person to be born into HIS HOUSE, HIS Family that refuses to willingly allow the Father to rule over them.

    That is a fact found through out the entire WORD !

  • If Christ said the Sabbath was made for all men, then it would be lawful that Christians keep the Sabbath. The truth is that the Sabbath was made for a certain group of people, and for a set period of time (Mark 2:27).

    Christians keep the Sabbath

    How can Christians keep the Sabbath when they are under the New Law of Christ.

    Col 2:14 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;

    Is it possible that Christians keep the Sabbath purely out of ignorance?

    Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    • Hello, christiantruthproject, you said…

      “The truth is that the Sabbath was made for a certain group of people, and for a set period of time”

      … got any proof of that or should we just take your word for it?

      Also what makes you think that Col 2:14 speaks of the Mosaic Law especially considering the 10 commandments have nothing to do with food and drink yet that is exactly what Paul goes on to expound upon (Col 2:16) elsewhere in Colossians? Why do you ignore where Paul makes it clear that “the commandments and doctrines of men” (Col 2:22) is what he meant?

      I put it to you that what was blotted out was the Pharisaical interpretation of the law.
