The Sabbath in the New Earth Site 31

Narrative for Site 31 on the Sabbath Trail

by Pastor Merlin Knowles

God invites us to cease trying to earn salvation through our own "good works" and simply choose to believe in Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour. It is our privilege to know, not just the theory of the gospel, but the power of "His Christ". No wonder the book of Hebrews tells us to be eager to enter that rest that humanity craves and needs so desperately. Jesus Himself is our Sabbath rest and it is fitting that worshipping God on the Sabbath day will be continued by God's children even when the earth is re-created after sin and sinners are no more.



The Sabbath in the New Earth

"Let us be eager to know this rest for ourselves..." And "we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness dwells." "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." Heb. 4:11, 2 Pet. 3:13, Is. 66:23



El Sábado en la Nueva Tierra

"Procuremos, pues, entrar en aquel reposo... y "esperamos cielos nuevos y tierra nueva, según sus promesas, en los cuales moran la justicia." "Y será que de mes en mes, y de sábado en sábado, vendrá toda carne a adorar delante de mí, dijo Jehová." Hebreos 4:11, 2 Pedro 3:13; Isaías 66:23


O Sábado na Nova Terra

“Estejamos ansiosos por conhecer este lugar de descanso…” e “nós, segundo a Sua promessa, busquemos novos céus e uma nova terra, onde habita a justiça.” “E será que desde uma lua nova até `a outra, e desde um Sábado até ao outro, virá toda carne a adorar perante Mim, diz o SENHOR.” Hebreus 4:11; II Pedro 3:13 e Isaías 66:23
