THE SERIOUSNESS OF KEEPING THE SABBATH
“If you value your lives, don’t do any work on the Sabbath….” (Jer 17:21 CEV).
“Take heed to yourselves; the Hebrew is, Take heed to your souls, intimating to us that the sanctification of the Sabbath is a great thing, where in the welfare of our souls is concerned” Matthew Poole (ref#112, p550, [Jer 17:21]).
“This message has life-or death consequences. The Sabbath is a day of ceasing from work, thus a time for physical and spiritual renewal and a gift to mankind” ESV Study Bible (ref#125, p1406-1407, [Jer 17:21]).
“Earth, spoiled of Sabbaths is a rapid road to hell” Henry Law (ref#214).
