“Fear God and keep His
commandments : for this is the WHOLE duty
The SABBATH will be kept
in the future and will be a day of worship.
“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall
remain before me, saith , ... it shall come to pass, that from
one new moon to another, and from one SABBATH, [H7676

Intensive from H7673; intermission, that is, (specifically)
the Sabbath: - (+ every) sabbath.] to
another [ actual word is Sabbath in the Hebrew not another ,
it actually reads Sabbath to Sabbath] shall ALL
flesh come to worship before me,
saith ” Isaiah 66:22-23.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God : not of works lest any man should boast”. -- Ephesians2:8-9
"Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Messiah Yahshua: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law" Romans 3:24-31.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:8-10
"If ye keep my
commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's
commandments, and abide in his love."
“And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments, he that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him . He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also to walk, even as he walked” -- 1 John 2:3-6.

fourth commandment has reference to the sacred seventh day, that it may
be passed in a sacred and holy manner. Now some states keep the holy
festival only once in the month, counting from the new moon, as a day
sacred to God; but the nation of the Jews keep every seventh day
regularly, after each interval of six days; (97) and there is an account
of events recorded in the history of the creation of the world,
comprising a sufficient relation of the cause of this ordinance; for the
sacred historian says, that the world was created in six days, and that
on the seventh day God desisted from his works, and began to contemplate
what he had so beautifully created; (98) therefore, he commanded the
beings also who were destined to live in this state, to imitate God in
this particular also, as well as in all others, applying themselves to
their works for six days, but desisting from them and philosophizing on
the seventh day, and devoting their leisure to the contemplation of the
things of nature, and considering whether in the preceding six days they
have done anything which has not been holy, bringing their conduct
before the judgment-seat of the soul, and subjecting it to a scrutiny,
and making themselves give an account of all the things which they have
said or done; the laws sitting by as assessors and joint inquirers, in
order to the correcting of such errors as have been committed through
carelessness, and to the guarding against any similar offences being
hereafter repeated. (99) But God, on one occasion, employed the six days
for the completion of the world, though he had no need of any length of
time for such a purpose; but each man, as partaking of a mortal nature,
and as being in need of ten thousand things for the unavoidable
necessities of life, ought not to hesitate, even to the end of his life,
to provide himself with all requisites, always allowing himself an
interval of rest on the sacred seventh day. (100) Is it not a most
beautiful recommendation, and one most admirably adapted to the
perfecting of, and leading man to, every virtue, and above all to piety?
The commandment, in effect says: Always imitate God; let that one period
of seven days in which God created the world, be to you a complete
example of the way in which you are to obey the law, and an
all-sufficient model for your actions. Moreover, the seventh day is also
an example from which you may learn the propriety of studying
philosophy; as on that day, it is said, God beheld the works which he
had made; so that you also may yourself contemplate the works of nature,
and all the separate circumstances which contribute towards happiness.
(101) Let us not pass by such a model of the most excellent ways of
life, the practical and the contemplative; but let us always keep our
eyes fixed upon it, and stamp a visible image and representation of it
on our own minds, making our mortal nature resemble, as far as possible,
his immortal one, in respect of saying and doing what is proper. And in
what sense it is said that the world was made by God in six days, who
never wants time at all to make anything, has been already explained in
other passages where we have treated of allegories."
The keeping of the first day as the
Sabbath by Christians can be traced to Constantine, a sun-worshipping
emperor of Rome, who gave an edict that changed the Sabbath to
[The] calendar that we follow, including Seventh-day Adventists, is not only a calendar that was devised by the Catholic Church, but also it is a calendar that‟s based upon the solar year, not the lunar year. And the Jewish calendar that was observed in the time of Christ . . . follows a lunar calendar, which is several days short of the solar year. So the great irony is that even the Seventh-day Adventists themselves are not worshipping on exactly the same Sabbath day as the Jews of the time of Christ.- Catholic scholar and apologist Patrick Madrid on “Open Line,” EWTN, Global Catholic Radio Network, January 5, 2006.
