“It cost God nothing, as far as we know, to create nice things:

but to convert rebellious wills cost Him the crucifixion.”

It’s highly significant: Sabbath not mentioned in these NT references of 10 Commandments. Don’t go back to Judaism.

Mar 10.19 Thou knowest the commandments, #7 Do not commit adultery, #6 Do not kill, #8 Do not steal, #9 Do not bear false witness, #10 Defraud not, #5 Honour thy father and mother. = #5, #6, #7, #8, #9, #10 (no #4)

Luk 18.20 Thou knowest the commandments, #7 Do not commit adultery, #6 Do not kill, #8 Do not steal, #9 Do not bear false witness, #5 Honour thy father and thy mother. = #5, #6, #7, #8, #9 (no #4)

Rom 13.9 For this, #7 Thou shalt not commit adultery, #6 Thou shalt not kill, #8 Thou shalt not steal, #9 Thou shalt not bear false witness, #10 Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, #5 (?) Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. #6, #7, #8, #9, #10 (no #4)

He chose a life-style rotten to the core,

He got his life-style, plus a little more,

He got sickness and loss of breath,

He got illness and eventual death,

Watch choices – they may multiply by four.

Sabbath (Sabbaths) was FOR Israel – Christians are not Israel.

* Don’t   allow   yourself   to   be   drawn   backward   to   Jewishness. *

Exo 31.13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbathS ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Exo 31.16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. Lev 23.24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Lev 24.8 Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant. Lev 25.2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD. Num 15.32 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day. 2Ch 2.4 Behold, I build an house to the name of the LORD my God, to dedicate it to him, and to burn before him sweet incense, and for the continual shewbread, and for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on the sabbathS, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts of the LORD our God. This is an ordinance for ever to Israel. Neh 10.33 For the shewbread, and for the continual meat offering, and for the continual burnt offering, of the sabbathS, of the new moons, for the set feasts, and for the holy things, and for the sin offerings to make an atonement for Israel, and for all the work of the house of our God. Neh 13.18 Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath. Eze 20.13 But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness: they walked not in my statutes, and they despised my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; and my sabbathS they greatly polluted: then I said, I would pour out my fury upon them in the wilderness, to consume them. Eze 45.17 And it shall be the prince’s part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the new moons, and in the sabbathS, in all solemnities of the house of Israel: he shall prepare the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.
