God rested on the seventh day - not every seventh day!

He rested permanently - He didn't start working again on the first day of the following week. The work of creation was finished!

God's rest is permanent, not once a week.

There is no record in Scripture that godly men observed a weekly sabbath, prior to the giving of the Law by Moses.

The weekly sabbath was given to Israel, as a weekly reminder that they needed God to be their sanctifier and to make them holy. Just like God gave them seasonal feasts with annual sacrifices, as annual reminders of divine principles.

Even after they entered the promised land of rest, it was still said that "a rest remains for the people of God". Joshua didn't give them the true rest.

But Jesus brought it. We who have entered into God's rest, cease from our own works, as God also ceased (permanently) from His.

Gone are the weekly, seasonal and annual reminders. Jesus is the real thing!

"Who of God is made unto us wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption."
