Does Hosea 2:11 Say God Would Cancel the Sabbath?

11 months ago

And I will put an end to all her mirth, her feasts, her new moons, her Sabbaths, and all her appointed feasts.
Hosea 2:11

This verse sounds an awful lot like God was saying he was going to cancel the Sabbath, but that's not what it says at all. Remember to understand the full context of a Bible passage before you try to understand a single verse in it.

Hosea is actually saying that Israel was abusing all the good things that God had given them, so he was going to take them away temporarily until they repented. Then he would restore them again.
