Sabbath from Creation?

A-Stunning-Creation-god-the-creator-11439510-1024-768    ‘Yes – but!’    Wasn’t the Sabbath instituted at creation?

Sabbatarians will often argue that the Sabbath did not begin at the Exodus but at creation, and, therefore, cannot be a shadow of Christ, since the Sabbath came before sin. However, in the second giving of the Ten Commandments, the reason for keeping the Sabbath was to “Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore, the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.”4 Certainly God’s deliverance of Israel from slavery foreshadows Christ’s deliverance of believers from their slavery to sin.  [Wesley Ringer]
