Truth Be Told S8.4 - Attack On The Twins PT.1
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man . And Adam said, This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh : she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
The Twin - When the Pharisees afterward questioned Him concerning the lawfulness of divorce, Jesus pointed His hearers back to the marriage institution as ordained at creation. "Because of the hardness of your hearts," He said, Moses "suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so." He referred them to the blessed days of Eden when God pronounced all things "very good." Then marriage and the Sabbath had their origin, twin institutions for the glory of God in the benefit of humanity. AH Chp 56, 340 p3.

Institution of The Sabbath
In The Beginning - God's Ideal.
Genesis 2: 1-3.
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it : because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
The 7th Day - Is the Sabbath Before Sinai
Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day , [which is] the sabbath , in it there shall be none. And it came to pass, [that] there went out [some] of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none. And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws? See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day. So the people rested on the seventh day.
Before Sinai - Before they came to Sinai , they understood the Sabbath to be obligatory upon them . After the giving of the manna, the people, of their own accord, gathered a double quantity on the sixth day in preparation for the Sabbath.
A threefold miracle was wrought in honor of the Sabbath, even before the law was given on Sinai . A double quantity of manna fell on the sixth day, none upon the Sabbath , and the portion needed for the Sabbath was preserved sweet and pure, when if any were kept over at any other time, it became unfit for food.
Here is conclusive evidence that the Sabbath was instituted at creation, when the foundations of the earth were laid, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy.
And its sacredness remains unchanged, and will so remain even to the close of time . From the creation, every precept of the divine law has been obligatory on man, and has been observed by those who fear the Lord. The doctrine that God's law has been abolished is one of Satan's devices to compass the ruin of the race. ST, February 28, 1884 par. 4
As the Marriage institution is Holy so is the Sabbath, They both originated in a Holy, sinless atmosphere by The Holy Righteous God. Man cannot make either side of the twin unholy.
Not To Be Lightly Regarded
When God created the earth and placed man upon it, he divided time into seven periods. Six he gave to man for his own use, to employ in secular business; one he reserved for himself . Having rested on the seventh day, he blessed and sanctified it. Henceforth, the seventh day was to be regarded as the Lord's rest day, and to be sacredly observed as the memorial of his creative work . It was not the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, or sixth day that was sanctified, or set apart to a holy use, neither was it a seventh part of time and no day in particular; but it was the seventh day, the day upon which God had rested . We are every day to think of God and live as in his sight ; but when the six day's work is done, we are to "remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy," to cease from labor and devote the day exclusively to meditation and worship. worship.
Signs of the Times, February 28, 1884 par. 1.
When the law was given at Sinai, the Sabbath was placed in the midst of moral precepts, in the very bosom of the decalogue. But the Sabbath institution was not then made known for the first time. The fourth commandment places its origin at creation. The Creator's rest day was hallowed by Adam in holy Eden, and by men of God throughout the patriarchal ages. During Israel's long bondage in Egypt, under taskmasters that knew not God , they could not keep the Sabbath; therefore the Lord brought where they could remember His holy day.
Signs of the Times, February 28, 1884 par. 2.
Exodus 20: 8-11.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day [is] the sabbath of the LORD thy God : [in it] thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that [is] within thy gates: For [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day : wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day , and hallowed.
- Marriage and The Sabbath were Instituted and Constituted by God At Creation

- There was an order before the fall and after the fall. The later order did not change the orientation of the marriage institution however there were and are consequences for disobedience.
- There is a fundamental difference between a wedding and a marriage
- The Sabbath is a literal 24hr period
- Just as Christ is The Glory of God so the wife is the glory of her husband
- The Marriage institution is just as sacred as the Sabbath institution and to disregard either side of the twin is to dishonour God
