    (Exodus 31:16-17) 16 Wherefore the children of israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between me and the children of israel for ever: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. [Now before we begin for the naysayers that say the sabbath isn't for them and only for jews read (Galatians 3:29); (Romans 11:17).You've been grafted in and you are Abraham's seed if Christ's Spirit indeed dwells in you. Now that means same God of the children of israel, same laws of the God of the children of israel, and the same promises of the God of the children of israel. Oh and haven't you heard there is no jew or gentile. Now that we've established we serve the same God let's get to the falsehood and root it out. Now the deceived and incognizant will tell you (Colossians 2:16) says the sabbath day that God sanctified [not man] has been abolished and blotted out but that is not a veracious interpretation, it is the false exegesis of satan. Now let's heedfully examine the context of this verse and see what is the actuality of what is being apprised here. Now notice the grammar of (Colossians 2:14) handwriting of ordinances that was against us. Do we have to guess or assume what these ordinances are?, or should we let man fabricated doctrine tell us what they are?, or should we let the set-apart Spirit, God's word, and context tell us? Let's go with the latter, now notice the similitude as we read further in context (Colossians 2:20-22), do you see the connection. This tells us exactly what these ordinances are, these are the commandments of men not God most high. It's telling us not to follow man's contrary ways but to follow Christ. You see how context conveys contexture. Now if you still believe torah was never given to the gentiles and gentiles were never mentioned observing the sabbath that's a falsehood, notice (Isaiah 56:6); (Acts 15:19-21) not only were they mentioned in the old hebrew scriptures [tanakh], but they're also shown given torah commandments [what is sin: transgression of torah] to keep in the new testament. Now you might ask why they were only given those commandments, because they didn't want to lay to heavy of a burden [all torah at once equals heavy burden] on these new believer gentile converts to Christ and they knew that's what the pagans were known to be mostly involved in that transgressed torah. If you read in context (Acts 15:21) they not only new these new believer gentiles would be observing the sabbath but they knew they would also be learning torah. Also one last thing, as you read at the beginning of this post, God rested and was refreshed which is what he wants for you. Jesus said ( Mark 2:27-28) that the sabbath was made for man [not against man] and the Son of man is Lord of the sabbath. Do you really think a day of rest is against you? It's time you take back what satan has stolen from you and delight in the law of God most high. God bless you.

    Same o same o. None of your proof texts tell gentiles we have to observe a day.

    It's your choice if you want to follow the commandments of men. I can't force you to enter God's rest, you have to believe.

    Yep, you get rest once a week, the rest I get is today, every day. New covenant rest never ends just as there was no end to the day after creation. New covenant rest remains for the people of God. The writer of Hebrews to the Jewish Christians, who were still keeping the Sabbath every week, told them that they had never entered the Rest that God had for them. The Rest I have is believing God's Grace will keep me everyday throughout my life. Matt11:29-30

    A day of rest is not against me. Mandating what that day should be is against me.

    Indeed it isn't, the Sabbath is forever, kept by all Christians, and will kept by all creation.

    I don't get the wording of "was the sabbath commandment against you?". But considering the OP's posts, I figured he's asking to vote yes or no on if gentile Christians have to observe the 7th day sabbath.

    That's how I understood it. I don't care how people word things, I'm not about to be put back under the Law from which I've been set free.

    Jesus Himself is now the Sabbath. Take rest in Jesus.


    Hebrews 4:9
    So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God,

    Matthew 11:28
    Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

    Man doesn't decide what righteous living is God most high does.

    Another veracious interpretation with no context. Your man fabricated doctrine has nothing to stand on against the truth of God's word. God bless you.

    I do not allow you to pass judgment on me.
    Nyah nyaaah Boo Boo.

    Colossians 2:16
    Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath.

    There was some verity to your quote, yes you can find rest in Jesus, whosoever's soul is heavy burdened. Now I hope you don't mind I took the privilege of adding to your quote above making the erroneous part verity. God bless you.

    Your man fabricated doctrine has nothing to stand on against the truth of God's word. There isn't one iota of scripture that states Jesus Christ abolished the sabbath commandment and is now taken the place of the sabbath day [that he said if you love me keep]. That is your fallacious interpretation which is the provenance of satan. God bless you.
