Why did God command Israel to hallow the Sabbath?


"And hallow My Sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am the
Lord your God." Eze. 20: 20.
NOTE - As the Sabbath was given that man might keep God in mind as Creator,' it can readily be
seen that a power endeavoring to exalt itself above God would first try to cover up or remove that which
calls man's special attention to his Creator. This could be done in no other way so effectively as by setting
aside God's memorial-the seventh-day Sabbath. To this work of the Papacy Daniel had reference when he
said, "And he shall . . . think to change times and laws." Dan. 7: 25.
