It has been said that our Messiah did not reaffirm the fourth commandment in the Messianic Writings (NT) making the Sabbath no longer valid.
If that is true then He did not reaffirm the first three commandments either, leaving only six commands? Hmm.
Does Messiah really not reaffirm the first four commands?
Matthew 5:17-18: “Do NOT think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets…till heaven and earth pass away, one yod or one title SHALL BY NO MEANS PASS FROM THE TORAH (the Torah includes the ten commands) till all be done.”
Matthew 12:7-9: “…For the Son of Adam is Master of the Sabbath…”
Also Mark 2:27-28: “And He said to them, the Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Adam is also Master of the Sabbath.” (See Genesis 2:2-3. This day was blessed and set-apart by Elohim at creation. Later it was instituted as the sign/seal of the everlasting covenant between Elohim and His people).
“Shabbat” comes from the root word Shin-Beit-Tav, meaning to cease, to end or to rest.
Matthew 22:36-40: “…You shall love Yahuah your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with and with all your mind” (Deuteronomy 6:5).
This is the first and great command. (The first four commands have to do with our relationship with Yahuah Elohim). And the second is like it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself (Leviticus 19:18). (The last six commands have to do with our relationship with our fellow human beings).
On these two commands, hang all the TORAH and the PROPHETS.
