How Binding Is It To Keep The Holy Sabbath of God?

Oh how many would like to forget His Royal Law when one would have to throw away the Bible to put it away out of his sight but that is all he could do. -

Why is it Holy? Because Yahweh Hallowed it and so it is Holy. Read, -

Ex 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Ex 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Most defile it by doing all they want to do and not dedicating the time fully to be with our Lord as it is the day he comes to tabernacle with us and all the Holy Heavenly Host.

Ho 4:6 ¶ My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Ps 111:7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.Ps 111:8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
Ps 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

"A good understanding have all they that do His commandments" It does take a good understanding to do them all without doubt.
He didn't destroy the law and man cannot no matter how hard he tries, Satan has made that attempt and failed.

Mt 5:17 ¶ Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Mt 5:18
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Mt 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

That law has only been changed to those who do not have a good understanding, refer to verse Ps 111:10 above. It wasn't God who changed the Sabbath to Sunday. It was changed but not to all you see. You must see if God didn't change it, it actually has not been changed. Will you be disobedient for the law of men over the law of God?

Do you really Love Him? He says, - Joh 14:15If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Then think about this verse. -

Joh 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Isa 58:13 ¶ If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD,, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
Isa 58:14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

It may be good to realize the promise of the following verse.

Ex 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

A few thoughts of the importance of keeping the Holy Sabbath.
