as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before
me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come
to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another,
shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord. Isa. 66:22, 23
In the beginning the Father and the Son
had rested upon the Sabbath after their work of creation. When "the
heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them," the
Creator and all heavenly beings rejoiced in contemplation of the glorious
scene. "The morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted
for joy." . . .
When there shall be a "restitution
of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets
since the world began," the creation Sabbath, the day on which Jesus lay
at rest in Joseph's tomb, will still be a day of rest and rejoicing. Heaven and
earth will unite in praise, as "from one sabbath to another" the nations
of the saved shall bow in joyful worship to God and the Lamb.
The nations of the saved will know no
other law than the law of heaven. All will be a happy, united family, clothed
with the garments of praise and thanksgiving. Over the scene the morning stars
will sing together, and the sons of God will shout for joy. . . .
"And it shall come to pass, that
from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh
come to worship before Me, saith the Lord." "The glory of the Lord
shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together." "The Lord
God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the
nations." "In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of
glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue His people."
So long as the heavens and the earth
endure, the Sabbath will continue as a sign of the Creator's power. And when
Eden shall bloom on earth again, God's holy rest day will be honored by all
beneath the sun.
