The Holy Sabbath is actually the worship of the planet Saturn. If you "keep the Sabbath," then you are carrying on the ancient worship of this pagan god. That is why he is worshipped on Saturn's Day -- which today we call "Saturday." http://www.jordanmaxwell.com/Religion.html

A very successful and well-known rock group called "Black Sabbath." The name is appropriate, because the Sabbath is the celebration of Saturn, whose symbolic color in the ancient world was always black. http://www.jordanmaxwell.com/Religion.html
Hebrew Name: Shabbatai
Hebrew Meaning: The "Sabbatic" from the Hebrew meaning "to cease."
Hebrew Theme: Cease, rest.
Saturn, with its huge rings, seven of them, was known in Talmudic Hebrew literature as a representation of the Shabbat (Sabbath). It earned this reputation because of its prolonged orbit around the Sun.
The planetary body Saturn, in the Hebrew language called Shabbatai—y)tb#$—comes from the three-letter Hebrew word Shabbat—tb#$. Shabbat, of course, refers to the seventh day of the week in Jewish reckoning, Shabbatai was the seventh planetary body known to the ancient Jews. Seven is a special number of rest and is addressed in Jewish numerology.
In the Tanakh (Bible), the heavenly body Saturn is referred to by the prophet Amos (5:26). Apparently the Babylonians named a god after Saturn and called it Chiun. Because this Babylonian god of stone was embraced by some of the Jews of the day, the One true G-d of their Fathers visited His anger upon them.
In Jewish commentaries, the legendary name given to the antichrist is Armilus.This Armilus will deceive the whole world into believing he is God and will reign over the whole world. He will come with ten kings and together they will fight over Jerusalem...Armilus will banish Israel 'to the wilderness' and it will be a time of unprecedented distress for Israel; there will be increasing famine, and the Gentiles will expel the Jews from their lands, and they will hide in caves and towers...God will war against the host of Armilus...and there will be a great deliverance for Israel and the kingdom of Heaven will spread over all the earth." (Encyclopedia Judaica)"Other references further describe Armilus as arising from the Roman empire, having miraculous powers, and being born to a stone statue of a virgin (which is why he is called "the son of stone"). It is also interesting that he makes this statue "the chief of all idolatry" with the result that "all the Gentiles will bow down to her, burn incense and pour out libations to her."

Later, some rabbis in the middle ages interpreted the position and movement of both planetary bodies Shabbatai and Tzedeq (Jupiter) as a sign of imminent Messianic redemption.
