Time is the first thing that God explicitly sanctified. God’s primary sanctuary wasn’t matter (an idol), space (a temple), but time. Matter, space, and time conceptually correspond with body, soul, and spirit. Scripture attests to the difficulty of differentiating between soul and spirit. Time and space are equally intertwined, which is why physicists often refer to them as the space-time continuum. The introduction of time into our universe and spirit into Adam follow a similar pattern.
The Day of Atonement was a Sabbath of Sabbaths. As our Jubilee trumpeter, the Lord bids us to rest in Him. When God’s work was done at the close of the sixth day, He rested from all His work. When Christ’s work of redemption was done, He sat at the right hand of God. He rested in His accomplished work.
