No, and we have Bible proof that the sabbath day was instituted and being observed BEFORE the ten commandments were given. Not only, as we explained on the home page, does the 4th commandment say that the seventh day of creation was the sabbath day, but look also at the following Bible verses from Exodus:
Exodus 16:23,26 ….’And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning ….. Six days ye shall gather it, but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.’
Do you see what God is saying here? The seventh day IS THE SABBATH DAY. It is a holy day and no one is to work on that day, and this is BEFORE the ten commandments. So we can clearly see that the seventh day sabbath was instituted and being observed before the ten commandments were given. It was being observed from creation week.
And think about this. How did Joseph know that getting involved with Potiphar’s wife would be a sin? We don’t have any written command given before this time in the Bible to say that adultery would be sin. Also, how did Cain commit a sin when there was no recorded written command to say that murder is wrong? You see, many people have a problem, saying that the 7th day Sabbath isn’t specifically written down in the Bible as a command before Sinai, even thought we have proved that wrong above. And yet they have no problem with other commands not being written down like adultery, murder etc.
