This is the day the LORD has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24.
The Sabbath is a sign of my relationship with Jesus! It indicates that I am giving Jesus permission to save me!!

12 Moreover I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, that they might know that I am the LORD who sanctifies them.
20 hallow My Sabbaths, and they will be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am the LORD your God.’ Ezekiel 20:12,20.
The Sabbath is made just for Us! How wonderful is that?
And He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. Mark 2:27.
The Sabbath is a delight!
12 Those from among you
Shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
13 “ If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath,
From doing your pleasure on My holy day,
And call the Sabbath a delight,
The holy day of the LORD honorable,
And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways,
Nor finding your own pleasure,
Nor speaking your own words,
14 Then you shall delight yourself in the LORD;
And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth,
And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father.
The mouth of the LORD has spoken.” Isaiah 58:12-14.
And Jesus is Lord of The Sabbath Too!!
And He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. 28 Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath.” Mark 2:27-28.
Now if Jesus is Lord of The Sabbath, which He is, Then the Lord’s Day mentioned in,Revelation 1:10,is The Bible Sabbath!
The Sabbath is not legalism any more than not stealing from my neighbor is legalistic!
The Apostle Paul addresses the issue in Hebrews 4:3-4,10-11. Paul is simply saying I can stop trying to save myself —– Jesus will save me. The Sabbath is a symbol that Jesus in fact saves me!! And it’s His creative Power that does just that! Praise God that I can cease from any attempt to save myself! Romans 1:16-17,19-20.
I repeat, I can’t save myself but Jesus can!! Makes me want to jump for joy when I realize that Jesus would have died just to save me!! John 3:16-17,36.
We will celebrate God’s Sabbath in the Earth Made New!
22 “ For as the new heavens and the new earth
Which I will make shall remain before Me,” says the LORD,
“ So shall your descendants and your name remain.
23 And it shall come to pass
That from one New Moon to another,
And from one Sabbath to another,
All flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says the LORD. Isaiah 66: 22-23.
Let me say it again,It makes me want to jump for joy when I realize that Jesus would have died to save just me!!
