The Non-Preterist Historicalism of John Calvin and the Westminster Standards

After the end of the sixth day, God rested and blessed His seventh day. For "on it He had rested from all His work which God created, in order to make it" — la'a:soth B through mankind! Genesis 2:3. God's sabbathing in mankind, is thus co-extensive with the whole of world history — from the past appearance of the first Adam, to the future reappearance of the Second Adam.

Comments Calvin:2 "First, therefore, God rested. Then He blessed this rest, that in all ages it might be held sacred among men…. This is to be the common employment not of one age or people only, but of the whole human race…. The Sabbath…was commanded to men from the beginning, that they might employ themselves in the worship of God. It is right that it should continue — till the end of the world."
