JL: Yes the ceremonial law was nailed to the cross. Saturday worship is, ceremonial law, not a NATUAL MORAL LAW. The natural moral law is written on our hearts not on stone.
[Rms2:13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but **the doers of the law shall be justified. 14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another; ) ]
Gentiles, who had not the law, yet kept the NATURAL LAW, did not nor could not, by NATURE and conscience, have KNOWN about a ceremonial day of worship. Saturday is NOT a NATURAL MORAL LAW but a ceremonial law.
The following scriptures show sabbaths listed among the ceremonial law. Which was nailed to the cross. Hosea tells us God will cause to CEASE Israel’s sabbaths, new moons and all her solemn feasts.
Is1:11 11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. 12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? 13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; THE NEW MOONS AND SABBATHS, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. 14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
Hos2:10 And now will I discover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of mine hand. 11 ** I WILL ALSO CAUSE ALL HER MIRTH TO CEASE**, her feast days, her new moons, AND HER SABBATHS, and all her solemn feasts.
Hos2:23 And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God.
[Col2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. 16 **LET NO MAN THEREFORE JUDGE YOU IN MEAT, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, OR OF THE NEW MOON, OR OF THE SABBATH DAYS: 17 WHICH ARE A SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME; but the body is of Christ.]
Saturday worship was only a shadow or type of the NEW DAY, (creation) to come, the FIRST DAY, SUNDAY. Just as circumcision was instituted for all time. [Gn17:13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and **my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. 14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.]
Circumcision of the flesh was only a shadow or type. Pointing to a new and better circumcision. Christ’s circumcision of the heart, thru baptism, literally cleansing of all sin regenerating a dead soul by the indwelling Holy Spirit. On the FIRST DAY, Sunday, we literally eat the Lamb of God. Not a shadow or type represented by animals.
JL: I would say our debt was nailed to the cross. But we can only appropriate that, GIFT payment, by GRACE. When we believe, repent, baptized for remission of sins and receive the GIFT of the Holy Spirit, Acts2:38.
