I had a thought this morning. Popular teachings claim that Elohim created the world in 6 days and then rested on the 7th, but actually, wasn't the world created in 7 days? I mean, the 7th day is included in the creation account. It is a special day created for man (remember, "the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath"-- Mark 2:27), so instead of learning of it as some archaic law under an old covenant, why aren't we taught that it is a day created, like all the others, but sanctified specifically for rest? It has a special place from the very beginning of the world and still does now.
Yet, another reason why I'm pleased to observe it.
