showbread of the Temple in hunger which He judged permissible, He judges
the disciples the same. He then reminded them that the Temple Priests also work
on the Sabbath but in His service, it is not considered work and always has and
always will be permissible. He called them many names and said “Ye do err, not
knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God” (Mt. 22:29). Pharisees know their
interpretations, their Talmud. They do not know Torah nor the Bible and we
should stop treating them as if they do.
Even in the Sermon on the Mount (Mt. 5) which we are told issued new law,
Messiah did no such. He restored the Law of Moses regarding anger (Ex. 20:13,
Lv. 19:18), lust (Ex. 20:14), divorce (Dt. 24:1-2 even setting forth the same loophole
for adultery which was not new) and love (Prov. 25:21, Lv. 19:18), further defined
oaths (Nm. 30:2-3, Lv. 19:12) and revenge, He added to in a sense, but revenge
was never permissible under the Law of Moses either (Lv. 19:18) and the true
intent likely the same. Thus, he abolished none of it but reasserted the Law of
Moses including four of the ten commandments in this one sermon. How exactly
can anyone say He abolished a Law He said He would not and does not.
Then, there is Paul who is found teaching the Sabbath and keeping it (Acts 17:2,
13:13, 13:14, 13:16, 13:27, 13:42-44, 15:21, 16:13, 18:3-4, etc.). The Apostles
kept the Sabbath after Messiah’s ascension so why don’t we?
The End Times Sabbath
If the Sabbath passed away, then there should be no more mention after Messiah’s
ascension yet the Apostles kept it still. This would either make them disobedient,
following vain practices or holy. The Apostles were holy and the other two do
not apply. Messiah takes this to the next level when he tells us believers are still
keeping the Sabbath in the very end times.
Matthew 24:3-5 KJV
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying,
Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and
of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no
man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall
Matthew 24:20-21 KJV
But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then
shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this
time, no, nor ever shall be.
