Did the Apostle Paul observe the Sabbath? YES! Acts 13:14-15 show that the Apostle Paul was teaching in the synagogue on the Sabbath many years after Christ died. In verse 42, after Paul’s Sabbath sermon, many of the Jews who heard him became offended and left. But notice, “the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.” The Gentiles, those who had no prior knowledge of Sabbath observance, asked if Paul could come back the next Sabbath.
Notice what happened: “And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God” (verse 44). Why didn’t the Gentiles ask him to come back on the following Sunday? Because Paul, like Christ, kept the Sabbath.
Notice Acts 17:2: “And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures.” This is now 20 years after Christ died, and we see that it was still Paul’s custom to keep the Sabbath, just as it was Christ’s custom (Luke 4:16).
Over 10 years later, Paul wrote the epistle to the Hebrews. In the first few verses of chapter 4, after discussing the spiritual “rest” this world will enjoy after Jesus Christ returns, Paul then explains how our weekly Sabbath observance pictures that millennial rest. “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God,” Paul wrote (verse 9). The Greek word for rest is sabbatismos, which simply means “keeping of the Sabbath.” Most Bible margins even point this out.
Had the seventh-day Sabbath been changed to Sunday, wouldn’t Paul have explained this to, of all people, the Hebrews in Judea? Instead, Paul reminded them that their weekly Sabbath observance was a very type of the millennial rest to come upon the entire world (Flurry, 2010).

Do we have to keep the Sabbath Day Nowadays? The Lord Commanded that We Keep the Sabbath Day Holy: Deut 5:12-15
The Lord did not request that we observe the Sabbath, He Commanded it! If we do not keep His Sabbath we are being disobedient to Him.
Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the Lord your God commanded you. Deut 5:12
Six days you shall labor and do all your work, Deut. 5:13
but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter or your male servant or your female servant, or your ox or your donkey or any of your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates, that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you. Deut. 5:14
You shall remember that you were a slave3 in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day. Deut. 5:15

Keeping the Sabbath Day Holy means doing no work on the Sabbath Day. It is important to keep in mind that God instructed us to keep the Sabbath day forever and in so doing we need to know how to do this. To keep the Sabbath day Holy you must do all your work in six days and on the seventh day you should not do any work, not you, your children, not people who work for you, not your working livestock, or those who visit you. In other words, it is a complete day of rest. We do this out of respect and in remembrance that the Lord created heaven and earth, the sea and everything in it in six days and rested on the seventh and because the Lord blessed the seventh day and made it Holy.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Exo. 20:8
Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, Exo. 20:9
but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. Exo. 20:10
For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. Exo. 20:11
