Was the Sabbath Abolished?

Hi everyone... Something interesting happened to me this week.
I rceived a message from one of my friends to whom i talked to about the sabbath, and he said that the Sabbath was abolishd through the death of Jesus in the cross. I found it viewpoint kind of interesting because if sabbath was abolished, then where does it say we have to keep sunday worship? even though Jesus resurrected on a sunday He never said: from now on you shall keep the sunday holy. For those who know a little bit of history, you can be sure of the fact that sunday worship was established by the first pope Constantine (a Roman Emperor) in ad 321, which was the day that he originally worship his god "the sun" (sunday=day of the sun) according to the history book: "History of Christianity".
Even though there is no prove in the bible concerning sunday worship, there are many proves concerning the Sabbath day, a day that shall be kept by the generations to come, according to God's own words.
Chek this out, and think about it seriously:
as believers of Christ we must do what He did for us as an example.

Luke 6:5 5Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."

He never came to abolish the old testament concerning the commandments:

Mathew 5:17
The Fulfillment of the Law
17"Do not think that I (Jesus) have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen; will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

So He fulfilled it:

Luke 4:14Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. 15He taught in their synagogues, and everyone praised him 16He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. And he stood up to read..

And his disciples and apostles too:

Acts 17:2As his custom was, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures

Jesus Himself kept the Sabbath according to the fulfillment of the law of the old testament. And so did apostle Paul after Jesus Christ had resurrected and gone up to heaven. Even the budist to everything Buda says, Indus to everything their gods say, and the Muslims what Mohamed said. What about us? As Christians we have to also do what Jesus Christ said. We can’t add or take anything away

Revelations 22: 18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. 19And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

Leviticus 23:1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'These are my appointed feasts, the appointed feasts of the LORD, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies. 3 " 'There are six days when you may work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, a day of sacred assembly. You are not to do any work; wherever you live, it is a Sabbath to the LORD.

This is the truth that God brought back since for about 1700 hundred years wasn't known or remembered. God came a second time with a new name: Ahnsahnghong, in the same way he came 2000 years ago with the name of Jesus.

Do you want to know more about Christ Ahnsahnghong? then keep post.
