“And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”
King James Version (KJV)

I am in the middle of looking for sources, but the term rest - in this verse means that he reigned from that moment on. He didn't go and take a nap. It meant that his kingdom was established. So he sat on his throne and reigned. That's why they kept sabbath because it was a reminder to the Jew's that on the days they did little to nothing, God is in control; nothing stops moving and God doesn't stop working.

Why does God say what God has created instead of what I or He has created ?

So God needed rest after working for 6 days. Thus the cycle of 7 days week started.

It is a glorious day to recall the glory of God's creations,especially the celestial system (ps.19:1).It is worth remembering the God of Glory on this day by resting from our worldly p***ions.

Yes, the calendar has had several changes, but always in dates(numbers), never in days. The 7th day is the same as it always has been and God santified the 7th day (set it apart for Holy use) He kept the 7th day Sabbath and gave it to man long before the 10 commandments were given.

God changes not nor alter the thing that came out of His mouth.

SEVENTH DAY - THEIR HAS BEEN SEVERAL CALENDARS - SINCE THE TIME OF CHRIST - PEOPLE USE SUNDAY AS THEIR DAY OF REST - SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST HAS THEIR BELIEFS, BUT GOD WANTED EVERYDAY TO BE A HOLY DAY UNTO THE LORD. - THATS WHY GOD SAYS "mens wisdom is foolishness to HIM" - The seventh day was a message - "Since you do not know what day I SANCTIFIED - SO THAT YOU WON'T BE WRONGE, EVERYDAY SHOULD BE A HOLY DAY. - THAT WAY YOU WON'T BE WRONGE.

Men need rest. But why does GOD NEED REST?
