< Introduction >
The low of the Old Testament was fulfilled by Jesus. The Sabbath of Moses was also accomplished through the Sabbath of Jesus. Let's study how people keep the Sabbath of Moses and the Sabbath of Christ. Today, we will see the difference between the two.

Matt 5:17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them(the low)."
Heb 7:12 For when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also.

As Jesus said, the low of Moses was fulfilled and changed into the low of Christ.
< Main Subject >
First, let's study how the Sabbath of Moses was kept. Then we will study how it was fulfilled and changed by Jesus.

In the time of Moses, people must not do any work on the Sabbath day. They were put to death when they work on the Sabbath day.

Exodus 31:15 For six days work is to be done, but the seventh day is a day of sabbath rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death.

Numbers 15:32 While the Israelites were in the wilderness, a man was found gathering wood on the Sabbath day. 33 Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and the whole assembly.

The man gathering wood on the Sabbath day was put to death.

On the contrary, priests did work on the Sabbath day by sacrificing animals to God. They were not put to death. This is the prominent difference between people and priests in keeping the Sabbath day.

Numbers 28:9 On the Sabbath day, make an offering of two lambs.
Leviticus 24:5~8 Take fine flour and bake loaves of bread.....Set them in two rows.

There were two different ways they celebrated the Sabbath of Moses. Ordinary people were not allowed to do any work on the Sabbath day while priests must work to worship God on the Sabbath.
2000 years ago, the Sabbath of Moses was fulfilled and changed into the Sabbath of Christ. Let's find out how the Sabbath of Christ was celebrated.

1 Peter 2:9 You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood.

In the time of Jesus, once people were baptized into Jesus, they were blessed and became the priests of the gospel. They kept the Sabbath, in the newly different way.

John 4:23~24 The true worshipers worship God in spirit and in truth.

Let's find out how Jesus celebrated the Sabbath day.

Luke 4:16 On the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. And he stood up to read.
< Conclusion >
Jesus came and showed us an example that we should keep the Sabbath in spirit and truth. We should follow His example until the end.
Today, Satan is deceiving God's people into believing that the Sabbath is insignificant and merely a part of the law of Moses. We should be careful not to fall into his trap. Jesus showed us an example of keeping the Sabbath of Christ. Therefore, we must celebrate the Sabbath day and also lead God's people to keep it.

    Age of the father and age of the son, the Sabbath is same law of God.
    Son of God came to the earth to give us salvation because we can not receive salvation the way of Moses's law.
    Because of our lacking.

    We must also keep the Sabbath as the law of Christ. in this last age. To receive salvation, let's follow God's teaching and keep the Sabbath.

  • 2021-03-10 13:42

    According to the Bible, the Sabbath of Moses was fulfilled and changed into the Sabbath of Christ 2000 years ago. It means that there is "law of God" that we should keep even in this age. God said, Sabbath is the day of God. Let's remeber and keep it, following the words of God.! 🙂

    Never changed from the Sabbath day to Sunday service.
    The Sabbath is the law of God that we must keep to the end of the world. Jesus just changed the way to keep the Sabbath and made the Sabbath perfect.

    The Church of God not keeping the Sabbath of the old covenant, but the Sabbath of the new covenant according to the example of Christ.

    God's will is to keep the Sabbath.
    Unless we keep the Sabbath, we can never enter the
    kingdom of heaven.
    Let's all keep the Sabbath and enter the kingdom of heaven.
