break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called
the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same
shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your
righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no
case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
When does Heaven and Earth pass away? The Day of Final Judgment. Not
one letter passes from the law until at least that point. This is what Messiah said
and any church opposing Him is not following Him. Anyone teaching men to
break even the least of His commandments will be the least in His kingdom. He
is saying right there the Law including the Sabbath matters to Him then, now and
to the end. His commandments never change as in the Sermon on the Mount,
he reinforces the 10 commandments of Moses and He better because they were
written by the very finger of Yahuah not by Moses (Dt. 9:10, Ex. 24:12, 31:18,
32:16, Jub. 50:6). He just copied them. It is the only part of scripture, Yahuah
physically wrote Himself and we are taught it passed away? These remain the
same as even Messiah’s 2 commandments that some declare as new both originate
directly from the Law of Moses. They were referring to the Law of Moses and He
answered from the Law of Moses not with new law. Even the Book of Hebrews,
tells us after Messiah ascended to Heaven, that breaking the Sabbath is a sign of
unbelief. How did that get into the New Testament? Well, the Apostles kept the
Sabbath in Acts alone over 50 times.
Hebrews 4:9-11 KJV
There remaineth therefore a rest [Sabbath] to the people of God. For he that is entered
into his rest [Sabbath], he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest [Sabbath], lest any man fall after the
same example of unbelief.
Sabbath is a sign between us and Yahuah (Ez. 20:19-20, Jub. 2:17). He who keeps
it is blessed (Is. 56:2, Jub. 2:28). It is a delight and not a burden (Is. 58:13-14, Jub.
2:28). We are to rest one day a week in His presence (Ex. 20:8-10, Jub. 2:17). No
work on the Sabbath (Ex. 20:8-10, Jub. 2:17). No pleasure for our own gain on
the Sabbath (Jub. 2:29, Is. 58:13). No cooking on Sabbath but prepare our food
the day before (Ex. 16:13, 35:3, Jub. 2:29).
If the Sabbath were insignificant, why is it mentioned 137 times in the Bible?
Jubilees mentions it 66 times. If Messiah had done away with it, why is it observed
by the disciples after His ascension? (Acts 2:1-4, 13:14-16,13:42-44,18:4, 1 Cor.
7:19, 11:1, etc.) Why did the early church keep it as well? If it was temporary, why
