What about Isaiah 66:23 indicating the Sabbath Day will be kept again in the Kingdom of God on earth?

The word 'Sabbath' here can mean 'sabbath', 'sabbath year', 'day of atonement', 'week', 'produce'.

The verse is an expression of a passing of time by rest. In the Kingdom of God, also called Kingdom of Heaven, a kingdom of spirits of those who have moved in their minds from the hard life produced by living at the low consciousness ego level, to the spiritual rest in the higher consciousness level. They are always at rest:.Hebrews 4:3 "For we which have believed do enter into rest..."; 4:9,10 "There remains therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works..." Isaiah 30:15 "...In returning and rest shall you be saved...".Are you doing daily meditation?

Both the phrases "from one new moon to another" and "from one sabbath to another" refer to the passing of time, here meaning eventually more and more people will come to worship God.

If the sabbath part supposedly refers to its being kept, so would the other part about the moon:.Deuteronomy 4:19; 17:3; Jeremiah 8:2. The first part of this verse refers obviously to a period of time.("from one new moon to another").and so does the last part; that meaning "from one sabbath to another", being also a period of time and an allegorical saying, talking of a state of existence when people will be aware of and give attention to God....

The Mosaic Law's Sabbath Day was part of the Mosaic Law with its over 600 rules and regulations, sacrifices, etc.

Christ's sacrifice will be recognized as having replaced those of this old covenant. In principle there are many good things we can learn from the Old Testament law.

All things culminate in Him, including the purpose of the old covenant:.Hebrews 2:8; Colossians 1:20. God has His ways of relation with man at different times as he sees fitting and proper....

This age for us now is a special age, the pressure cooker of our lives. The pressure cooker which the body, being a tool for your life, can use both to learn and grow spiritually.

Personal spiritual development does not stop with death as it always continues at all times. However, the presence of the physical body enhances spiritual growth of one's soul. That's why we have a physical body. It's speedier and overall, easier on us:.Matthew 11:28-30. The pressure cooker of this life is but for a short time. With God time is unimportant as it's different for God than for us. God could have kept human lives long as they were at the beginning of mankind. But why prolong the agonies that come along in life if the same result can be achieved in a shorter time for humans? That's a loving God for you! It's easier on them. I mean, knowing what we now know, would you want to live a human life for around a few hundred to a thousand years as these people did at mankind's beginning?

Our 'sabbath' or rest, in this age is in Him, not necessarily on some particular day of the week:.Hebrews 4:3

In other ages Christians had much physical persecution to deal with:.2Timothy 3:12. In this age we have the opportunity to deal with ourselves.(*).as few in past ages could afford time to and/or had the mind to.

Those under grace in any age who accept Christ are promised a great reward. Relating to God through physical obedience is not accepting His grace into your heart.

In Old Testament times it was physical blessings for physical obedience. The spiritual sonship opportunity was not open to them. Their hearts could not accept it. It was not God's time for that to be available for them.(Deuteronomy 5:29; Revelation 21:1-6).enabling them to attain eternal life as a spiritual being, being a member of the God family

Comprised with Easton's Bible Dictionary:."Hebrew verb 'shabbath', meaning "to rest from labor", the day of rest. It is first mentioned as having been instituted, in.Genesis 2:2. Mark 2:27 "The sabbath was made for man...", made as a day of rest and refreshment for the body and of blessing to the soul.

"It is next referred to in connection with the gift of manna to the children of Israel in the wilderness.(Exodus 16:23).and afterwards, when the law was given from Sinai.(Genesis 20:11), the people were solemnly charged to."remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy." Thus it is spoken of as an institution already existing.

"In the Mosaic law strict regulations were laid down regarding its observance:.Exodus 35:2,3; Leviticus 23:3; 26:34. These were peculiar to that dispensation

"In the subsequent history of the Jews, frequent references are made to the sanctity of the Sabbath:.Isaiah 56:2,4,6,7; 58:13,14; Jeremiah 17:20-22; Nehemiah 13:19. In later times they perverted the Sabbath by their traditions. Our Lord rescued it from their perversions and recalled to them its true nature and intent.(Matthew 12:10-13; Mark 2:27; Luke 13:10-17).

"Originally at creation the seventh day of the week was set apart and consecrated as the Sabbath.....We know for a fact that the first day of the week.(Sunday).has been observed from apostolic times.....After His resurrection, which took place on the first day of the week.(Matthew 28:1; Mark 16:2; Luke 24:1; John 20:1), we never find Christ meeting with his disciples on the seventh day..... manifesting himself to them on four separate occasions:.Matthew 28:9; Luke 24:18-34; John 20:19-23. Again, on the next first day of the week, Emmanuel appeared to his disciples:.John 20:26.

"Some have calculated that Christ's ascension took place on the first day of the week."
