You have told a spiritual lie! Jesus is NOT the SABBATH!! MY JESUS makes it CRYSTAL CLEAR he is NOT the SABBATH day in Matt 24: 20!! Do you secretly reject what Jesus said in Matt 24: 20 ?
Do you want to apologise to the readers for leading them in wrong path? Do you want to repent for your insulting views on Jesus and telling spiritual lies?? I'm not sure your EGO would allow you? Satan is well pleased!
Dan
That text proves nothing except to say that Jesus was talking to His disciples (who were Jewish) and He knew their rules would not permit them to carry anything more than a handkerchief on Sabbath, making it difficult to flee on that day (couldn't carry any of your belongings).

I may be delusional about you, thinking that you are Shubee-do-duh-whole-long-day, but that is immeasurably better than your delusion.

Oh, of course not....to me the sabbath is the worst burden in my life.
The only way I can keep it is to take a dozen sleeping pills and set my alarm clock for 24 hours later...wear my depends so I can defecate in it and not soil the sheets.
Are you wasted by living so close to the SDA ghetto>>>Loma Linda?

Jesus can be our Sabbath rest in part because He is “Lord of the Sabbath”(Matthew 12:8). As God incarnate, He decides the true meaning of the Sabbath because He created it, and He is our Sabbath rest in the flesh. When the Pharisees criticized Him for healing on the Sabbath, Jesus reminded them that even they, sinful as they were, would not hesitate to pull a sheep out of a pit on the Sabbath. Because He came to seek and save His sheep who would hear His voice (John 10:3,27) and enter into the Sabbath rest He provided by paying for their sins, He could break the Sabbath rules. He told the Pharisees that people are more important than sheep and the salvation He provided was more important than rules. By saying,“The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath”(Mark 2:27), Jesus was restating the principle that the Sabbath rest was instituted to relieve man of his labors, just as He came to relieve us of our attempting to achieve salvation by our works. We no longer rest for only one day, but forever cease our laboring to attain God’s favor. Jesus is our rest from works now, just as He is the door to heaven, where we will rest in Him forever.

Hebrews 4 is the definitive passage regarding Jesus as our Sabbath rest. The writer to the Hebrews exhorts his readers to “enter in” to the Sabbath rest provided by Christ. After three chapters of telling them that Jesus is superior to the angels and that He is our Apostle and High Priest, he pleads with them to not harden their hearts against Him, as their fathers hardened their hearts against Jehovah in the wilderness. Because of their unbelief, God denied that generation access to the holy land, saying,“They shall not enter into My rest”(Hebrews 3:11). In the same way, the writer to the Hebrews begs them—and us—not to make the same mistake by rejecting God’s Sabbath rest in Jesus Christ.“There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience”(Hebrews 4:9-11).

There is no other Sabbath rest besides Jesus. He alone satisfies the requirements of the Law, and He alone provides the sacrifice that atones for sin. He is God’s plan for us to cease from the labor of our own works. We dare not reject this one-and-only Way of salvation (John 14:6). God’s reaction to those who choose to reject His plan is seen in Numbers 15. A man was found gathering sticks on the Sabbath day, in spite of God’s plain commandment to cease from all labor on the Sabbath. This transgression was a known and willful sin, done with unblushing boldness in broad daylight, in open defiance of the divine authority.“And Jehovah said to Moses,‘The man shall surely be put to death’”(v. 35). So it will be to all who reject God’s provision for our Sabbath rest in Christ.“How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?”(Hebrews 2:3).

How do U react when an SDA says "happy sabbath" to you when U get to church? Is this a cheap way so one doesn't have to greet you by name or say..good morning..how are you doing..or great day isn't it?
Ever see how pastors try to get people to know one another by putting on name tags?
But I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak face to face. Peace be to thee. Our friends salute thee. Greet the friends by name.
3 JN 1:14
What about making the sabbath an idol by .."happy sabbath"
Can one say good morning yoyo instead of the institutional cliche .....happy sabbbbbbbattthhhhh???.
How about happy Lord's day since sabbath is the real Lord's day...IS 58:13???
Happy sabbath, happy sabbath, happy sabbath....
HEY, GET A LIFE U fanatic cult freaks
OM goodness, you people are finally running out of things to moan and groan about and to hate.

Get a life. We, in the church I attend, know each others' names.

You haters are really sad.

Have an unhappy Sabbath. That is for you and all the haters in here.

"SDA "Happy Sabbath " greeting"

The Sabbath is indeed a happy time, because it's a day that is Holy and blessed by God (Exo. 20:11). God made it a day of rest and to show that we are His people. The Sabbath is both a commandment and a “perpetual covenant”.(Exo. 31:12-18).

“If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, From doing your pleasure on My holy day, And call the Sabbath a delight, The holy day of the Lord honorable, And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, Nor finding your own pleasure, Nor speaking your own words, Then you shall delight yourself in the Lord; And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father. The mouth of the Lord has spoken.” Isaiah 58:13-14

When Jesus died, the Sabbath died. Those who still insist upon observing any shadow pointing to the Cross are actually denying the majesty, glory, and reality of Jesus Christ.

Resting in Him,

yup, enter in but you didn't give the verse!
Hebrews 4:9 in its PROPER translation says:
"There remaineth therefore a keeping of a sabbath to the people of God."
...a keeping of...
meaning God's chosen people (Christians) are still Not supposed to work on it
meaning those claiming that only 9 of the Ten Cs are reiterated in the New Covenant are WRONG!
Collossians 2:14-17 does Not do away with the Sabbath, it refers only to the sabbaths which were a 'shadow of things to come' and Not to the 7th day Sabbath
In honor of His resurrection, Jesus instituted Baptism, Not Sunday keeping.
The Lord's Day is Sabbath
Follow Jesus' example and keep it every week

I think you are all nuts. It is Jesus who is the Sabbath
Why doin't you say " Peace in Jesus"..If you put so much to do on a day than Jesus being the day then right It would be an Idol.,..But sence your identy is in a day
nothing you say will make any difference.
I think you're nuts; Jesus isn't the Fourth Commandment and He isn't the seventh day of the week...

Jesus is our spiritual rest. Sabbath is the day of our physical rest.

We say "Happy Sabbath" for the same reason someone says "Happy Birthday" or "Merry Christmas."

Nobody "keeps" Sunday. Attending church for a couple of hours is NOT "keeping" a day. And you are misled and confused! The [weekly] sabbath WAS indeed a shadow of things to come - Namely, our 24/7 continual and blessed rest in Jesus, the True Sabbath Rest!!!
