God “hallowed” or “blessed” the Sabbath

Posted by mrloudcry on March 20, 2011 in The Sabbath |


Sabbatarians falsely teach that the Sabbath is eternal because God “hallowed” or “blessed” it.

But the Levitical priesthood: 2 Chron 35:3; Tabernacle: Ex 29:30-31; Ark of Covenant: 2 Chro 35:3; Passover: Ex 12:14-17; Day of atonement: Lev 23:27-32 were also “hallowed”, yet Adventists agree they are abolished.

Actual Sabbatarian argument: “God blessed, hallowed and made holy the Sabbath day therefore we must still keep it!” and “Once God blesses something, it will be blessed forever”

Sabbatarian argument refuted:

A. If the Sabbath day must be kept because God blessed, hallowed and made it holy then we must keep these things too:

  1. vessels: Ex 40:9; Num 31:6; 1 Ki 8:4
  2. Water: Num 5:17
  3. Solomon’s temple: Ps 65:4; 1 Ki 9:3
  4. The Aaronic high priestly order: Ex 29:21
  5. The Levitical priesthood: 2 Chron 35:3
  6. The firstborn: Num 3:13
  7. The most holy place of the tabernacle: Ex 29:30-31
  8. the ark: 2 Chro 35:3
  9. mountain: Isa 11:9
  10. ground: Ex 3:5
  11. garments: Ex 28:2
  12. crown: Ex 29:6
  13. flesh of the ram: Ex 29:31-33
  14. ointment: Ex 30:25
  15. Fruit: Lev 19:23
  16. tithes: Lev 27:30
  17. Jerusalem: Neh 11:1
  18. Sabbath day: Ex 20:11

B. The sabbath is not the only holy day in the Old Covenant:

  1. 1st day of the 7th month: Lev 23:23-25; Neh 8:1,9,11
  2. 14th & 21st day of the 1st month: Ex 12:1,6,16
  3. Passover: Ex 12:14-17; Lev 23:16,23
  4. Sabbath day: Ex 20:11
  5. Day of atonement: Lev 23:27-32
  6. 15th day of the 7th month: Lev 23:34-38

C. The holiest things were not the Sabbath!

  1. The most holy place: Ex 26:33
  2. Most holy Altar: Ex 29:37
  3. most holy atonement: Ex 30:10
  4. most holy articles: Ex 30:26-29
  5. most holy mixture: Ex 30:34-36
  6. most holy remnant of meat offering: Lev 2:3
  7. most holy offerings: Lev 7:17
  8. most holy house: 2 Chron 3:8,10
