Sabbath commandment? How about the Love commandment? Works religion vs. Grace

Jesus violated the rules and regulations set down in the laws of Moses over and over again, and the Pharisees used the Sabbath over and over to condemn even his good works, and picking corn on the Sabbath to eat. Gleaning corn on the Sabbath so you can eat another day –which you did because you broke the Sabbath laws that told you to pick your Sabbath corn the day before– is comparable to taking a job where you have to work on the Sabbath to get your paycheck.

If the Sabbath is or was at an end, there is no good reason to believe that not one of the disciples or even Paul had the guts to come right out and say that the Sabbath day God created was at an end. None of them ever did or taught this and all of them were murdered save John.
Why don’t we see in Revelation woe unto those who keep the false seventh day Sabbath instead of the right one the catholic church made?
 Instead we see the opposite in Rev 22:14 Blessed [are] they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.


It’s amazing how works religions push for the commandments they can handle. But the most important commandments given both in the tablets handed to Moses and from the mouth of Jesus Christ, are the ones nobody talks about when they talk about how you have to keep the law:

Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Matthew 22:35 Then one of them, [which was] a lawyer, asked [him a question], tempting him, and saying,

36 Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

IF you don’t keep those two commandments, which are MUCH more important than the Sabbath, then you deserve hell fire and brimstone as much as any Sabbath-violator or Sunday observer, for violating God’s commandments.

That’s why when the rich man came to him in Matthew 10 asking what he should do to have eternal life. It was a lesson to us. Jesus’ response was to list the easier commandments and ask if he had kept them: no “adultery, Do not kill, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and thy mother”.

Check. Check. Check. Check. Check. He kept those all his life. Maybe Jesus left out the Sabbath because he knew something about this young man.

So Jesus pointed to the one commandment he could not keep, to love the Lord thy God with all thy might, and thy neighbor as thyself.

What good is the Sabbath if you break the two greatest commandments every day all day? We all break those two commandments constantly.

Which brings us to Jesus Christ for the redemption of sins.
