Does the rest of God’s creation keep the Sabbath?

God’s Creation and the Sabbath

“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” (Isaiah 66:23). This verse says “all flesh.” So, does all flesh mean earthlings or does it mean all of God’s creation? The Bible is not clear. The fact remains that all will observe the Sabbath in eternal recognition of Christ as the Creator of the world. And He will be recognized as the re-Creator of the new heavens and the new earth.

A Spectacle to the Universe

The Bible also reveals, “for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men” (1 Corinthians 4:9). God’s children and their lives have been of interest for the inhabitants of heaven (Hebrews 10:32, 33; 12:1). This whole world of ours is a stage on which the conflict between sin and righteousness, truth and error, is being carried on before an intensely interested audience composed of the inhabitants of the universe. This interest may lead them to join in the celebrations that will take place during the Sabbath.

God’s Infinite Plans

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9). No one can really comprehend what God has planned for His children which includes: fellowship with the Creator, fellowship with other creations, and enjoying the inexpressible wonder, peace and beauty of God’s kingdom of glory, the eternal home of the saved. All such knowledge is far beyond anything that men may now know apart from the good news of the gospel.
