Egel maasseikha & shemitta

If God is once again to risk allowing His Presence to manifest among the Children of Israel in a pre-mishkanic fashion, then He must first be sure the Children of Israel will not provoke His wrath as they did with the ma’assei ha’egel
He therefore tells them to refrain from making what amounts to an analogue to the egel maasseikha while at the same time exhorting them during the six active years to guard the shabbat and fear the miqdash when they build the sub-structure for the year of shemitta
