Evolution of Sabbath Pt 2.8

Paul commands people to not to let others keep them from obeying commands of Yahweh. All that Yeshua has done is so powerful and generous and profound that we shouldnt let anyone affect our decision to follow Yahwehs commands. These practices find their whole substance in Yeshua.

Col 2:8 NASB – See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.
Col 2:9 NASB – For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form,
Col 2:10 NASB – and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority;
Col 2:11 NASB – and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ;
Col 2:12 NASB – having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
Col 2:13 NASB – When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions,
Col 2:14 NASB – having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
Col 2:15 NASB – When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him.
Col 2:16 NASB – Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day–
Col 2:17 NASB – things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ.

The last mention of Sabbath directly now puts Sabbath in context of salvation, and not jsut the initial salvation of being born again, but the eschatological reign of Messiah, and perhaps even the new Jerusalem and the new heavens and new earth after the millennial reign of Messiah.

Hbr 4:9 NASB – So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.
Hbr 4:10 NASB – For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.
Hbr 4:11 NASB – Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience.
