The Sabbath of the New Covenant

What each country views as valuable is different. In Bolivia, sugar is precious and is considered valuable, but not in Korea. In South Korea, tropical fruits are considered precious but in Bolivia, they are everywhere so even if the fruits are right beside someone, they pay no attention it and just pass it by.

It is the same with the Sabbath Day. Even though many people in the world consider it worthless, angels in heaven envy and even long to look into this truth of salvation (1Peter 1:7-12). Since it has great value in the spiritual world, Satan hindered the Sabbath day so it would not be made known and changed the truth of salvation from the Sabbath Day to Sunday (Daniel 7:24-25). The Spanish Bible clearly shows that the Sabbath Day is Saturday (sabado), however people worship on Sunday because they don’t know its value.

“He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the Synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read,” (Luke 4:16).

Jesus, who is the Creator God, showed us an example of keeping the Sabbath of the new covenant and did not offer up a sacrifice of a sheep or goat of the first covenant. The apostles also kept the Sabbath of the new covenant just as Jesus set them an example.

“As was his custom, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures,” (Acts 17:2).

The Sabbath day is a precious ordinance of God that cannot be replaced with any treasure of the world.
