Creation of the earth and man #6 Of the Sabbath day #4 Mosaic codes, Sabbaths and Sunday

As I have shown, the observance of the seventh clay was obligatory only upon the Israelites so long as the Mosaic code was in force, being “a sign” between God and them. The sabbaths belong to the land and people of Israel, and can be only kept according to the law while they reside in the country. This will appear from the fact that the law requires that “two lambs of the first year without spot” should be offered with other things “as the burnt-offering of every sabbath”; an offering which, like all the offerings, etc., must be offered in a temple in Jerusalem where the Lord has placed His name, and not in the dwelling places of Jacob. Israel must therefore be restored to their own country before even they can keep the sabbath. Then, when

“the throne is established in mercy; and he (the Lord Jesus) shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness”, (Isaiah 16:5)

then, I say

“shall the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord God: and they shall hallow my sabbaths.” (Ezechiël 44:15, 24.)

But these sabbaths will be no longer celebrated on the seventh day. They will be changed from the seventh to the eighth, or first day of the week, which are the same. The “dispensation of the fulness of times”, (Ephesians 1:10) popularly styled the Millennium, will be the antitype, or substance, of the Mosaic feast of tabernacles which was “a shadow of things to come”.

Eph 1:3-14 The Scriptures 1998+  (3)  Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Master יהושע  {Jeshua} Messiah, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Messiah,  (4)  even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be set-apart and blameless before Him in love,1 Footnote: 12 Thess. 2:13.  (5)  having previously ordained us to adoption as sons through יהושע  {Jeshua} Messiah to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His desire,  (6)  to the praise of the esteem of His favour with which He favoured us in the Beloved,  (7)  in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of trespasses, according to the riches of His favour,  (8)  which He has lavished on us in all wisdom and insight,  (9)  having made known to us the secret of His desire, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Him,  (10)  to administer at the completion of time, to gather together in one all in Messiah, both which are in the heavens and which are on earth, in Him,  (11)  in whom also we did obtain an inheritance, being previously ordained according to the purpose of Him working all matters according to the counsel of His desire,  (12)  for us to be the praise of His esteem – those having first trusted in Messiah,  (13)  in whom you also, having heard the word of the truth, the Good News of your deliverance, in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Set-apart Spirit of promise,  (14)  who is the pledge of our inheritance, until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His esteem.

In this type, or pattern, Israel were to rejoice before the Lord for seven days, beginning

“on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when they had gathered the fruit of the land”. In relation to the first day of the seven, the law says, “

it shall be a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein”. This was what we call Sunday. The statute then continues, “on the eighth day”, also Sunday,

“shall be a holy convocation unto you, and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein”.

Again,

“on the first day shall be a sabbath and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath” ( Levites 23:34–43)

 

Lev 23:34-43 The Scriptures 1998+  (34)  “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl saying, ‘On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Booths for seven days to יהוה {Jehovah}.  (35)  ‘On the first day is a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work.  (36)  ‘For seven days you bring an offering made by fire to יהוה {Jehovah}. On the eighth day there shall be a set-apart gathering for you, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה {Jehovah}. It is a closing festival, you do no servile work.  (37)  ‘These are the appointed times of יהוה {Jehovah} which you proclaim as set-apart gatherings, to bring an offering made by fire to יהוה {Jehovah}, a burnt offering and a grain offering, a slaughtering and drink offerings, as commanded for every day –  (38)  besides the Sabbaths of יהוה {Jehovah}, and besides your gifts, and besides all your vows, and besides all your voluntary offerings which you give to יהוה {Jehovah}.  (39)  ‘On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the fruit of the land, observe the festival of יהוה {Jehovah} for seven days. On the first day is a rest, and on the eighth day a rest.  (40)  ‘And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of good trees, branches of palm trees, twigs of leafy trees, and willows of the stream, and shall rejoice before יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim for seven days.  (41)  ‘And you shall observe it as a festival to יהוה {Jehovah} for seven days in the year – a law forever in your generations. Observe it in the seventh month.  (42)  ‘Dwell in booths for seven days; all who are native Yisra’ĕlites dwell in booths,  (43)  so that your generations know that I made the children of Yisra’ĕl dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Mitsrayim. I am יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim.’ ”

Thus, in this “pattern of things in the heavens”, the first and eighth days are constituted holy days in which no work was to be done. It also represents the palm-bearing or victorious ingathering of the twelve tribes of Israel from their present dispersion to the land of their fathers, “when the Lord shall set his hand a second time to recover the remnant of his people”

Isa 11:11 The Scriptures 1998+  (11)  And it shall be in that day that יהוה {Jehovah} sets His hand again a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, from Ashshur and from Mitsrayim, from Pathros and from Kush, from Ěylam and from Shinʽar, from Ḥamath and from the islands of the sea.

Three times in four verses does Zechariah style the yearly going up of the Gentiles to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of Hosts, there, the keeping of the feast of tabernacles; (Zechariah 14:16–19) an event which is consequent upon the destruction of the dominion represented by Nebuchadnezzar’s image, and the re-establishment of the kingdom and throne of David.

Zec 14:16-19 The Scriptures 1998+  (16)  And it shall be that all who are left from all the gentiles which came up against Yerushalayim, shall go up from year to year to bow themselves to the Sovereign, יהוה {Jehovah} of hosts, and to observe the Festival of Booths.  (17)  And it shall be, that if anyone of the clans of the earth does not come up to Yerushalayim to bow himself to the Sovereign, יהוה {Jehovah} of hosts, on them there is to be no rain.  (18)  And if the clan of Mitsrayim does not come up and enter in, then there is no rain. On them is the plague with which יהוה {Jehovah} plagues the gentiles who do not come up to observe the Festival of Booths.  (19)  This is the punishment of Mitsrayim and the punishment of all the gentiles that do not come up to observe the Festival of Booths.

This national confluence of the Gentiles to Jerusalem is characteristic of Messiah’s times; and of the true or real festival tabernacles, when he will “confess to God among the Gentiles, and sing unto his name”, and “they shall rejoice with his people”, Israel.

Rom 15:9-10 The Scriptures 1998+  (9)  and for the gentiles to praise Elohim for His compassion, as it has been written, “Because of this I shall confess to You among the gentiles, and I shall sing to Your Name.”  (10)  And again it says, “Rejoice, O gentiles, with His people!”

Referring to this time, the Lord says,

“the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name shall the House of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.… They have even defiled my holy name by their abominations that they have committed: wherefore I have consumed them in mine anger. Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of their kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever”. (Ezechiël 43:7–9)

This is clearly a prophecy of what shall be hereafter, because the House of Israel still continues to defile God’s holy name by their abominations; but when this comes to pass they shall defile it “no more”.

After the declaration of these things, Ezekiel is commanded to show them the description of the temple which is destined to be “the house of prayer for all nations”, with the ordinances, forms, and laws thereof. The Lord God then declares,

“the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it”,

and when the Levites of the seed of Zadok shall approach unto Him. The “cleansing of the altar”, and the consecration of the priests, is then effected by the offerings of seven days.

“And when these days are expired, it shall be that upon the eighth day, and So Forward, the priests shall make your burnt offerings upon the altar, and your peace offerings; and I will accept you (O Israel), saith the Lord,” (Ezechiël 43:27 27)

Thus, the day of the Lord’s resurrection from his seventh-day incarceration in the tomb, becomes the sabbath day of the future age which shall be hallowed by the priests of Israel, and be observed by all nations as a day of holy convocation in which they shall rejoice, and do no manner of servile work at all.

Note:

The phrase “They will be changed from the seventh to the eighth, or first day of the week, which are the same” could give the impression we believe the Sunday came in the place of the Sabbath, which is not.

elpis_israelWe want to remind our readers that “Elpis Israel – An Exposition of the Kingdom of God” (commonly called “Elpis Israel” (English transliteration of Greek for “the hope of Israel”, taken from Acts 28:20)) is a theological book written by John Thomas, founder of the Christadelphians, in 1848-1849 and published in 1849. It predated the coining of the name “Christadelphian” by a decade and a half, but sets out in a logical manner the distinctive and fundamental beliefs that the Brotherhood, all these years afterwards, still upholds.

The original manuscript was essentially the substance of a lecture series delivered by Brother Thomas during a visit to the United Kingdom from the USA in 1848. After being encouraged by many who heard these lectures to put them into a more permanent form, Brother Thomas stayed for a time in London, and in a feverish period of activity centred mainly on six weeks when – to use his own description – he oscillated like a pendulum between his desk and his bed, he produced this important work.

Before the author’s death in 1871, the work went through four editions, the last of these incorporating some changes, mostly in the third and last part. As he explained in the Preface to that edition, he was agreeably surprised that so few changes were necessary: less than a dozen altogether in the first two parts of the book. Those in the last section were occasioned mainly by developing international events, but also by a more detailed consideration of the subject of resurrection.
In the light of changing times and modern discoveries, especially in the field of textual knowledge, several visions got changed. Where there is some doubt regarding the scriptural support for any point, this has generally been covered by a footnote in the later editions, and not by amending the text.

At first you could receive the impression Dr. John Thomas is for the replacement of the Sabbath with the Sunday, but as you will see later and in texts of his works he first stated what he got to see in his time, wanting to observe a Judaized Lord’s day (p. 23).  For him it was a voluntarily inflicted case and restriction upon themselves, bringing on them selfinflicted limitations or pains and penalties to which they may be entitled for its “profanation”. Later the vision on Sunday as observance day became much more clear and the new light or insight on the Sabbaths made it clear that we do not have to have Sunday as the specific day of worship for God. Any day of the week can be used. The same for work and rest, each person can work on any day or night and take some rest on whatever day of the week, as long as he provides enough rest for himself to recuperate from his duties.

You may find more about the Sabbath and Sunday in later writings on this site (a.o. when we shall discuss Jesus’ saying on this subject.) or in previous writings on our other sites. Please do find also our article: Sabbath according to the Scriptures.

God-breathed prophetic words written torah and the mitzvot to teach us

Here you can find the bible verses by the previous article:

Necessary to be known all over the earth

 

 

“23  but the words, “it was credited to his account…, ”were not written for him only. 24 they were written also for us, who will certainly have our account credited too, because we have trusted in him who raised Yeshua our lord from the dead-” (Romans 4:23-24 CJB)

“for everything written in the past was written to teach us, so that with the encouragement of the Tanakh we might patiently hold on to our hope.” (Romans 15:4 CJB)

“16 all Scripture is god-breathed and is valuable for teaching the truth, convicting of sin, correcting faults and training in right living; 17 thus anyone who belongs to god may be fully equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17 CJB)

“19  yes, we have the prophetic word made very certain. you will do well to pay attention to it as to a light shining in a dark, murky place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 first of all, understand this: no prophecy of Scripture is to be interpreted by an individual on his own; 21 for never has a prophecy come as a result of human willing – on the contrary, people moved by the  Ruach haKodesh spoke a message from god.” (2 Peter 1:19-21 CJB)

“he has to remain in heaven until the time comes for restoring everything, as god said long ago, when he spoke through the holy prophets.” (Acts 3:21 CJB)

“{A: v, S: iv} “these words ADONAI spoke to your entire gathering at the mountain from fire, cloud and thick mist, in a loud voice; then it ceased. but he wrote them on two stone tablets, which he gave to me.” (Deuteronomy 5:22 CJB)

“8 you are to write on the stones all the words of this torah very clearly.” 9 next Moshe and the cohanim, who are L’vi’im, spoke to all Isra’el. they said, “be quiet; and listen, Isra’el! today you have become the people of ADONAI your god. 10 therefore you are to listen to what ADONAI your god says and obey his mitzvot and laws, which I am giving you today.”” (Deuteronomy 27:8-10 CJB)

“2 “the spirit of ADONAI spoke through me, his word was on my tongue. 3 the god of Isra’el spoke; the rock of Isra’el said to me, ‘A ruler over people must be upright, ruling in the fear of god; 4 like the morning light at sunrise on a cloudless day that makes the grass on the earth sparkle after a rain.’” (2 Samuel 23:2-4 CJB)

““isn’t my word like fire,” asks ADONAI, “like a hammer shattering rocks?” (Jeremiah 23:29 CJB)

“then he answered me, “this is the word of ADONAI to Z’rubavel: ‘not by force, and not by power, but by my spirit,’ says ADONAI-Tzva’ot.” (Zechariah 4:6 CJB)

“yes, they made their hearts as hard as a diamond, so that they wouldn’t hear the torah and the messages that ADONAI-Tzva’ot had sent by his spirit through the earlier prophets. this is why great anger came from ADONAI-Tzva’ot;” (Zechariah 7:12 CJB)

“David himself, inspired by the Ruach haKodesh, said, ‘ADONAI said to my lord, “sit here at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.’” {#Ps 110:1}” (Mark 12:36 CJB)

““brothers, the Ruach haKodesh spoke in advance through David about Y’hudah, and these words of the Tanakh had to be fulfilled. he was guide for those who arrested Yeshua—” (Acts 1:16 CJB)

“but this is how god fulfilled what he had announced in advance, when he spoke through all the prophets, namely, that his Messiah was to die.” (Acts 3:18 CJB)

“(12:14) by a prophet ADONAI brought Isra’el up from Egypt, and by a prophet he was protected.” (Hosea 12:13 CJB)

“in my distress my comfort is this: that your promise gives me life.” (Psalms 119:50 CJB)

“for the mitzvah is a lamp, torah is light, and reproofs that discipline are the way to life.” (Proverbs 6:23 CJB)

“but displaying grace to the thousandth generation of those who love me and obey my mitzvot.” (Exodus 20:6 CJB)

“ADONAI said to Moshe, “come up to me on the mountain, and stay there. I will give you the stone tablets with the torah and the mitzvot I have written on them, so that you can teach them.” (Exodus 24:12 CJB)

“observe the charge of ADONAI your god to go in his ways and keep his regulations, mitzvot, rulings and instructions in accordance with what is written in the torah of Moshe; so that you will succeed in all you do and wherever you go.” (1 Kings 2:3 CJB)

“so be wholehearted with ADONAI our god, living by his laws and observing his mitzvot, as you are doing today.”” (1 Kings 8:61 CJB)

“all the more does he say this for our sakes. yes, it was written for us, meaning that he who plows and he who threshes should work expecting to get a share of the crop.” (1 Corinthians 9:10 CJB)

“these things happened to them as prefigurative historical events, and they were written down as a warning to us who are living in the acharit-hayamim.” (1 Corinthians 10:11 CJB)

“for ADONAI corrects those he loves like a father who delights in his son.” (Proverbs 3:12 CJB)

“he must hold firmly to the trustworthy message that agrees with the doctrine; so that by his sound teaching he will be able to exhort and encourage, and also to refute those who speak against it.” (Titus 1:9 CJB)

“the sexually immoral – both heterosexual and homosexual – slave dealers, liars, perjurers, and anyone who acts contrary to the sound teaching” (1 Timothy 1:10 CJB)

“if anyone teaches differently and does not agree to the sound precepts of our lord Yeshua the Messiah and to the doctrine that is in keeping with godliness,” (1 Timothy 6:3 CJB)

“follow the pattern of the sound teachings you have heard from me, with trust and the love which is yours in the Messiah Yeshua.” (2 Timothy 1:13 CJB)

“and it’s true! for this reason, you must be severe when you rebuke those who have followed this false teaching, so that they will come to be sound in their trust” (Titus 1:13 CJB)

“also you have forgotten the counsel which speaks with you as sons: “my son, don’t despise the discipline of ADONAI or become despondent when he corrects you.” (Hebrews 12:5 CJB)

“(his talmidim later recalled that the Tanakh says, “zeal for your house will devour me.”) {#Ps 69:9}” (John 2:17 CJB)

“it is the spirit who gives life, the flesh is no help. the words I have spoken to you are spirit and life,” (John 6:63 CJB)

“23 Yeshua answered him, “if someone loves me, he will keep my word; and my father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 someone who doesn’t love me doesn’t keep my words—and the word you are hearing is not my own but that of the father who sent me. 25  “I have told you these things while I am still with you. 26 but the counselor, the Ruach haKodesh, whom the father will send in my name, will teach you everything; that is, he will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 “what I am leaving with you is shalom —I am giving you my shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened. 28  you heard me tell you, ‘I am leaving, and I will come back to you.’ if you loved me, you would have been glad that I am going to the father; because the father is greater than I. 29 “also, I have said it to you now, before it happens; so that when it does happen, you will trust. 30 “I won’t be talking with you much longer, because the ruler of this world is coming. he has no claim on me; 31 rather, this is happening so that the world may know that I love the father, and that I do as the father has commanded me. “get up! let’s get going!” (John 14:23-31 CJB)

“so Yeshua gave them an answer: “my teaching is not my own, it comes from the one who sent me.” (John 7:16 CJB)

“for I have not spoken on my own initiative, but the father who sent me has given me a command, namely, what to say and how to say it.” (John 12:49 CJB)

“10 don’t you believe that I am united with the father, and the father united with me? what I am telling you, I am not saying on my own initiative; the father living in me is doing his own works. 11 trust me, that I am united with the father, and the father united with me. but if you can’t, then trust because of the works themselves. 12  yes, indeed! I tell you that whoever trusts in me will also do the works I do! indeed, he will do greater ones, because I am going to the father. 13 in fact, whatever you ask for in my name, I will do; so that the father may be glorified in the son. 14 if you ask me for something in my name, I will do it. 15  “if you love me, you will keep my commands; 16 and I will ask the father, and he will give you another comforting counselor like me, the spirit of truth, to be with you forever. 17 the world cannot receive him, because it neither sees nor knows him. you know him, because he is staying with you and will be united with you. 18  I will not leave you orphans—I am coming to you.” (John 14:10-18 CJB)

“while others refused to believe. so they left, disagreeing among themselves, after sha’ul had made one final statement: “the Ruach haKodesh spoke well in saying to your fathers through Yesha‘yahu the prophet,” (Acts 28:25 CJB)

“10  finally, grow powerful in union with the lord, in union with his mighty strength! 11 use all the armor and weaponry that god provides, so that you will be able to stand against the deceptive tactics of the adversary. 12 for we are not struggling against human beings, but against the rulers, authorities and cosmic powers governing this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm. 13 so take up every piece of war equipment god provides; so that when the evil day comes, you will be able to resist; and when the battle is won, you will still be standing. 14 therefore, stand! have the belt of truth buckled around your waist, {#Isa 11:5} put on righteousness for a breastplate, {#Isa 59:17} 15 and wear on your feet the readiness that comes from the good news of shalom. {#Isa 52:7} 16 always carry the shield of trust, with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 and take the helmet of deliverance; {#Isa 59:17} along with the sword given by the spirit, that is, the word of god;” (Ephesians 6:10-17 CJB)

“but since we belong to the day, let us stay sober, putting on trust and love as a breastplate and the hope of being delivered as a helmet. {#Isa 59:17}” (1 Thessalonians 5:8 CJB)

“it is the spirit who gives life, the flesh is no help. the words I have spoken to you are spirit and life,” (John 6:63 CJB)

“see, the word of god is alive! it is at work and is sharper than any doubleedged sword – it cuts right through to where soul meets spirit and joints meet marrow, and it is quick to judge the inner reflections and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12 CJB)

“then he is rid of his duty to honor his father or mother.’ thus by your tradition you make null and void the word of god!” (Matthew 15:6 CJB)

“thus, with your tradition which you had handed down to you, you nullify the word of god! and you do other things like this.”” (Mark 7:13 CJB)

“you have been born again not from some seed that will decay, but from one that cannot decay, through the living word of god that lasts forever.” (1 Peter 1:23 CJB)

“the emissaries and the brothers throughout Y’hudah heard that the Goyim had received the word of god;” (Acts 11:1 CJB)

“another reason we regularly thank god is that when you heard the word of god from us, you received it not merely as a human word, but as it truly is, god’s word, which is at work in you believers.” (1 Thessalonians 2:13 CJB)

“when we say this, we base it on the lord’s own word: we who remain alive when the lord comes will certainly not take precedence over those who have died.” (1 Thessalonians 4:15 CJB)

“having made his decision, he gave birth to us through a word that can be relied upon, in order that we should be a kind of firstfruits of all that he created.” (James 1:18 CJB)
