Please take this only as from a lover of the Commandment, not as any condemnation or personal criticism, bearing in mind, "He who answers before listening ~ it is to his folly and shame" (Pr. 18:13). I was once in denial and rebellion against Gentiles needing to follow the 4th Commandment, but I listened to all of what Scripture says, not men, or Constantine's establishment of "Sunday" as the new Christian day of rest. Hebrews 4 has been "allegorized" to mean our "rest" in Mashiach, but really the whole section deals with the disobedient, and mentions the "Gospel". The message of repentance is of no value to the lost, and it says "He has spoken about the seventh day in these words: 'And on the seventh day Elohim rested from all His work'." At v.9: "There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of Elohim; for anyone who enters Elohim's rest also rests from his own work, JUST AS ELOHIM DID FROM HIS. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of DISOBEDIENCE. For the Word of Elohim (Torah) is living, and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart..." With the New Covenant, we receive the Torah written on our hearts, and His "Word" is the Torah. If the Sabbath is for only Hebrews, not Gentiles, then why would Gentiles be punished for not observing the Feast of Tabernacles after Yahushua's return, cited at Zech. 14? Also, there is no difference now between a Hebrew and a Gentile, as a follower of Mashiach. The Replacement Theology has lulled us into thinking Gentiles (or the "Church") are now "Israel", but it is rather these wild olive tree branches grafted into the original olive tree, Israel (Rom. 11). This is far more than a "Pharisaical" issue. There is no "Covenant" in Scripture with "Christians", only Yisrael!
