Your Sabbath Questions Answered

Doesn’t Hebrews 4 mean Jesus is our Sabbath rest?

Some teach that Hebrews 4 defines the seventh-day Sabbath commandment in the Decalogue as a shadow-type law pointing forward to a spiritual rest in Christ. They view the Sabbath in the same way the Old Testament sacrifices pointed forward to Christ's atoning death on the cross. They teach that once we have found "spiritual rest" in Christ, we no longer need to observe the Sabbath day, and that keeping the seventh day is a form of bondage and an act of personal works.

It is true that the primary message of Hebrews 4 is to emphasize the believer's rest of grace. The main point in Hebrews 3:7-4:11 ...

The idea of separate rest and worship days has recently started to catch on in some circles.

For instance, singer/songwriter Michael Card and singer Steven Green have said they rest on Sabbath but worship with local congregations on Sunday. However, this was not the practice of either Jesus or the apostle Paul. They didn't rest on the Sabbath and worship on Sunday (Luke 4:16; Acts 17:1, 2). We certainly applaud these men for recognizing the biblical truth of the seventh-day Sabbath rest, but, if we are going to worship the Creator (Revelation 14:7), why not do so on the day that He himself picked out? (Genesis 2:1).

When we get someone a gift, we often pick out something that we ourselves would ...

CHRISTIAN CHURCH
It has reversed the fourth commandment by doing away with the Sabbath of God's Word, and instituting Sunday as a holiday.
