If you keep the seventh-day Sabbath, you should also keep the seventh year and the year of jubilee.

If you keep the seventh-day Sabbath, you should also keep the seventh year and the year of jubilee.
The seventh year and the year of jubilee are not mentioned in the Ten Commandments. They were to be kept only “in the land” of Israel and were not once kept in the wilderness before the Israelites entered Canaan. They are parts of that “law of commandments contained in ordinances” (Ephesians 2:15) that ended at the cross.

Arguments Refuted - In Exodus 31:14 we read that Sabbath violators were to be stoned to death. Do you believe the same penalty should be enforced today? If you say that the penalty feature of the Sabbath law is done away, then you have really declared the Sabbath abolished, for a law has no force if there is no penalty provided for its violation. Again, in Exodus 35:3 we read that no fires were to be kindled on the Sabbath. If you believe the Sabbath law is still in force, why do you kindle fires on that day?
