Sabbath: Rest or Worship

The Sabbath day is a day of rest, not worship. God never told Israel to worship him on the Sabbath day. The word Sabbath and Worship was never spoken by God together. Read (Genesis 22:5) where Abraham told his servants to abide because he and his son were

going to go up to worship in the land of Moriah. The Sabbath day was not mentioned. When God presented himself to Moses on the mountian in (Exodus 34: 8), Moses made haste and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped. The word Sabbath is also not mentioned
here. Under the old covenant the spirit of God only dwelt in one place, the temple in Jerusalem. (2 Chronicles 5:13-14). Therefore people had to come to Jerusalem to worship and be in the presence of God. (Acts 8:27)
