Szuch77:

Let me ask you. Are you circumsized? Is this a requirement? Have you strayed further than a 1/4 mile from your home on any Saturday? Did you so much as wash your child or even your dog on a Saturday? Did you use electricity on a Saturday--which was cause for making someone else work on a Saturday? If you answer yes, then the penalty for your sin is death. That's the old Law. Animal sacrifice was part of the old Law also. Not only is the penalty for sin death. But you are still waiting for your Messiah, who has already come and taken those sins from you. If you will only believe.

It never erased the Law. The Old Testament Law was simply for Jews. Christians are under the New Covenant. I get quite upset of people in their ignorance trying to return Christians to the "bondage" of a Law that nobody could actually ever fully live up to. So, Jesus set us free from it. We are saved by our faith, trust and belief in Jesus, and by His grace only. No adherence to a Law that was given to or for the Jews (who also could never fully live up to it) will ever save a Christian.

MANDATORY SHABBAT (SABBATH) OBSERVANCE WAS LAID ON THE JEWS ONLY....

The Word of God makes it quite clear that Sabbath observance was a special sign between God and Israel: "And Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, "Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel: 'You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to Myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine'" (Exodus 19:35).

Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed (Exodus 31:1617). Note: It says; "the children of Israel).

In Deuteronomy 5, Moses restates the ten commandments to the next generation of Israelites. Here, after commanding Sabbath observance in verses 1214, Moses gives the reason the Sabbath was given to the nation Israel: "And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the Lord your God commanded you (Israelites) to keep the Sabbath day" (Deuteronomy 5:15). (Note: Moses tells us, the Sabbath was given to the nation of Israel).

Notice the word therefore AND "you" (Israel). God's intent for giving the Sabbath to Israel was not that they would remember creation, but that they would remember their Egyptian slavery and the Lord's deliverance. Note the requirements for Sabbath-keeping: A person placed under that Sabbath law could not leave his home on the Sabbath (Exodus 16:29), he could not build a fire (Exodus 35:3), and he could not cause anyone else to work (Deuteronomy 5:14). A person breaking the Sabbath law was to be put to death (Exodus 31:15; Numbers 15:3235).
