“NO SABBATH NO PASSOVER FEAST”
MANY CHRISTIANS are somewhat CONFUSED about why we don't worship on SATURDAY anymore. These CHRISTIANS are not so much CONFUSED as those questioning Sunday worship, as they are seeking the biblical AUTHORIZATION for having the day of rest (Sabbath) CHANGED to Sunday. They simply want to know, "why is there a New Testament Sabbath?"
There are TWO things to consider. NUMBER ONE: The Sabbath was given to ISRAEL as the 'SIGN' of an everlasting COVENANT between GOD and HIS people in REMEMBRANCE that it was God who SANCTIFIED them (Exodus 31:13-16), and because they should REMEMBER God's work in bringing them OUT of the BONDAGE of EGYPT (Deuteronomy 5:13-15)(old Jewish ceremonial law). NUMBER TWO: it was instituted as a DAY of REST from their labors (Exodus 31:17), commemorating GOD'S rest from HIS. It was to be observed on the SEVENTH day (Saturday), and was to be a HOLY DAY wherein their WORK would CEASE.
There is NO new testament SABBATH any more than there is a new testament PASSOVER feast (both old Jewish ceremonials). The PASSOVER FEAST continues in the OBSERVANCE of the LORD'S SUPPER, and likewise the SABBATH continues in the LORD'S DAY (Sunday). (all the OLD Jewish CEREMONIALS were CANCELLED with Christs death on the cross) We were given a NEW covenant and our REST is found IN Christ at ALL times, therefore EVERY day is our Sabbath CONTINUALLY, amen.
Mathew 12 11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the SABBATH day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift [it] out? ( to accomplish that which is good such as working to feed ones family) 12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is LAWFUL to do well on the Sabbath DAYS. (every day belongs to the Lord)
16 ¶ let NO man therefore JUDGE you in regard to MEAT or DRINK, or in RESPECT to a HOLY DAY or the NEW MOON or the SABBATH days, 17 which are a SHADOW of THINGS to COME, but the BODY is of CHRIST. (Colossians 2:16-17) But the BODY now is of CHRIST who CAME to FULFILL these LAWS!!! This was ONLY a SHADOW of THINGS to COME that CHRIST would DO AWAY WITH by FULFILLING them. CHRIST FULFILLED these LAWS of (meat, drink, holy days, new moons, the Sabbath) that’s why the scripture say's "LET NO MAN THEREFORE JUDGE YOU IN REGARDS TO THEM." We are FREE from the LAWS of CONDEMNATION nor is ANYONE to JUDGE us on THEM because CHRIST FULFILLED them for us. Amen!
WELCOME IN JESUS' NAME!!!
