Weekly Sabbath .. How Far Back?

Obviously, the above more than makes the point that the Sababth has "always" been in effect, it was never canceled by God, the Catholics just ignored it and reinstated something else on a different day.

Now some may say that "there was no weekly Sabbath between the time that God sanctified the Sevth Day at creation till the time of Moses."

Yes, the first mention in the Bible of God expecting his chosen people to rest on the seventh day was when they received the manna in the desert on their way to the promised land, and then came the Mount Sinai experience where it was "put in writing" So some may think that there was no weekly Sabbath till around 1400 B.C.

But: Does that mean that the Knowledge of God having blessed the Seventh day was "non-existant?"

Luke 3:23-38 lists the genealogy of Jesus all the way back to Adam, and it's fair to assume that every one of those righteous godle men passed on what they had seen and known. And there's no doubt that God informed Adam that the Seveth Day was Holy. Accordingly, every ancestor of Jesus knew the Seveth Day Was Holy.

A point to keep inmind is that Writing was a rare and unknown "art" to men up until Moses' day -- this was the first chance man had, really, to put God's story into wrinting. And the fourth commandment begins with "remember" .. REMEMBER the Seventh Day... See, during the two hundred-year Egyptian captivity there would have been little chance to practice actually keeping the Sabbath: they were enslaved in Egypt.

So, were they told to remember something that they had never known? The truth is that they were being told to remember what they once knew... Proof: In Genesis 26:5 it says that "Abraham obeyed my vocie, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statues, and my laws." Abraham kept the Lord's Sabbath.
