Does Jesus still care that the whole willing creation keep His Sabbath Day?


But it is easier that the heaven and the earth should pass away than that one tittle of the law should fail.  Luke 16:17 Darby


Luke 16:17 answers the question for all of those who can understand the Scriptures. Jesus has made all of us one in is Faith. Making us believers one in Him means that we join the Israelites to adopt their belief system of Judaism as it was given to Moses and enforced by the Prophets. Jesus reinforces Moses and the Prophets as sole immutable guidance in Luke Chapter 16. In the chapter, we learn that to avoid going to hell we must comply with Moses and the Prophets and that no resurrected dead person from hell transformed into a prophet has the power to make the disobedient obey. It is Moses and the Prophets. Period. No special revelation because of special relationship with Jesus is mentioned in the chapter. Those who outright reject Moses and the Prophets or because of the writings of Paul must stop fooling themselves to avoid being damned because of unbelief (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 in KJV).

Nevertheless, it is important to analyze and expose, for the edification of the weak in the Faith of Jesus (Revelation 14:12), the erroneous reasoning of those who err by twisting the writings of Apostle Paul and, thus, cannot understand the Scriptures no matter how clear it is. For example, Revelation 21:1 teaches that these heavens and this earth will burn out to be replaced by a brand-newly created ones. However, that religion teaches that this earth will not go anywhere but will be renewed. That is an example of the antichrist: he speaks against God (Jesus). When Jesus says 'do' the Antichrist says 'don't do', and vice versa.  

Moved by the spirit of the Antichrist, disguised Theologians brandish Colossians 2:16-17 (and other twisted verses), as one of the weapons to attempt to assault the Sabbath to oblivion. Is that verse the right weapon against the Sabbath of Genesis? There is no weapon against what is written in the Law of Moses.

Of course, the Law cannot save anybody. If the Law of Moses could save, those who reject Jesus can just bypass Jesus. As the only Savior by whom all men can be saved, no one can do anything else besides what Jesus says to be saved. And what does Jesus say? That it is easier that our world disappear than for one character of the letters of the Law of Moses to be changed (Luke 16:17). Plainly, Jesus is saying that His Sabbath Day is here to stay forever.

The Jewish Bible contains the same message as Luke 16:17: do not go around the writings of Moses and do not add or substract from them.

Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.  Deuteronomy 5:32 KJV

Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.  Joshua 1:7 KJV

Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left;  Joshua 23:6 KJV

Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.  Deuteronomy 4:2 KJV

What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.  Deuteronomy 12:32 KJV

From the vantage point of the quoted verses, does anyone think that someone may substract the Sabbath day from the writings of Moses? Neither Moses nor the Prophets nor the Apostles have the authority to change or adjust anything that God (Jesus) on Sinai.

James writes that  failing to comply with even one of the laws (the seventh day sabbath, for example) of Moses renders us guilty of all of them (James 2:10).

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.  James 2:10 KJV

There is nothing, according to Jesus Himself, that Jesus did on earth, even dying, which can affect or effect or loosen or abolish the Law of Moses. If it is so written in Matthew 5:17-18, how can anyone go for the false teachings to drop the Sabbath Day from the Canon of the Faith of Jesus in favor of a man-chosen day among the 6 days that Jesus gifts mankind? 

Matthew 5:17-18 ASV

(17)  Think not that I came to destroy the law or the prophets: I came not to destroy, but to fulfil.

(18)  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law, till all things be accomplished.

Well, note that Eve fell to temptation not because she did not know that she was not allowed to eat the fruit of knowledge. She recited verbatim with addition the forbiddance to the Serpent.

Genesis 3:1-3 ASV

(1)  Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which Jehovah God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of any tree of the garden?

(2)  And the woman said unto the serpent, Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat:

(3)  but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.


Can you see anything wrong in the rendering of the same verse in the LEB & LITV versions? Sabbath appears in singular in one version and as a plural in the other version. Which one is it?  Is 'the Sabbath day' of Genesis mentioned in the New Testament as 'an indefinite Sabbath' or as plural 'Sabbaths'? As Jesus weighed every single word and logic in a verse to bring out the true teaching in the verse (Matthew 22:41-46) and expose the errors of the wicked so we must also do to discern the truth in mistranslation and misinterpretation or disinformation in the New Testament.

The Greek manuscript for the verse mentioned plural sabbaths and not singular sabbaths. Yes, there is a difference because the 7th Day has been a standalone doctrine, from the Creation.

Compare one indefinite: a sabbath

Therefore do not let anyone judge you with reference to eating or drinking or participation in a feast or a new moon or a Sabbath,

Colossians 2:16 LEB 

With more than one: of sabbaths

Then do not let anyone judge you in eating, or in drinking, or in part of a feast, or of a new moon, or of sabbaths,

Colossians 2:16 LITV 

Has the Sabbath of YHWH God ever been only for the Israelites?

From Isaiah 56:1-8, NEVER!  Assuming you have been activated for understanding (Luke 24:45).

The Sabbath day has been mandatory for the Jews. There is no question about it because we find it is incorporated in the 10 commandments section of the Law. God has been very serious with the Israelites when it comes to keeping the Sabbath under the threat of death. Has God ever cared that pagans should also keep the Sabbath?
YHWH had always let the pagans be. YHWH never sent the Israelites crusading to impose Judaism on anybody. Nevertheless, YHWH got involved when things went out of hand, like in Nineveh. Furthermore, YHWH always has welcomed anyone who is willing, any pagan, to join the Jews in keeping the rest, as it is written in Isaiah 56. We read in Isaiah 56 that YHWH promised better treats or perks for the pagan who would join the chosen people to keep the Sabbath and do other things that please YHWH God.
As such, we understand that YHWH God did not exempt any alien who was willing to join Judaism in the past to partake His Sabbath Day. There is nothing in the Bible that suggests that the will of God for the one who converts to Judaism has changed or adjusted before Jesus came to the scene, has changed or adjusted for today or will change or will get adjusted in the future. Per the seal of Christianism read in Matthew 5:17-18, Christianism is full-fledged Judaism minus the fulfilled portion.
Hence, keeping the Sabbath was a no brainer for an alien and it is still mandatory for every convert who believes in Jesus, YHWH God (Matthew 5:17-18). In other words, there has never been one convert who was exempt from keeping the Sabbath (Numbers 15:16, 29). So, If you believe you are exempt from keeping the Sabbath by any reasoning and, yet, still claim to believe in God, know that Isaiah 56 and Numbers 15:16, 29 show that you do not really believe in Jesus, YHWH God, but in the Adversary who told Eve 'thou shall not die'.

Isaiah 56:1-8 LITV
(1) So says Jehovah: Keep justice and do righteousness, for My salvation is near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed. 
(2) Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it; keeping sabbath, from defiling it; and keeping his hand from doing every evil.  
(3) And do not let the son of the foreigner speak, he who joins himself to Jehovah, saying, Separating Jehovah separates me from His people; and not do let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dried tree.
(4) For so says Jehovah to the eunuchs who keep My sabbaths and choose things I am pleased with, and take hold of My covenant:
(5) I, even I will give to them in My house and in My walls a hand and a name better than sons and than daughters; I will give them an everlasting name which shall not be cut off.
(6) And the sons of the alien who join themselves on Jehovah to serve Him, and to love the name of Jehovah, to be His servants, everyone who keeps from defiling the sabbath, and takes hold of My covenant:  
(7) even them I will bring to My holy mount and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted on My altar, for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the peoples,
(8) states the Lord Jehovah, who gathers the outcasts of Israel; I will yet gather beside him his gathered ones. 

Why can't we believe in ALL the Scriptures?

(25) Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father's name bear witness about me,  (26)  but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep.  (27)  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:25-27 ESV

Who does the Sabbath belong to again? Man or YHWH God?

Matthew 12:8 LEB
For the Son of Man is lord [or Owner, Master] of the Sabbath."
