Sabbath Answers

What day should we go to church?
Jesus’ Example

1Pe 2:21  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
Joh 13:15  For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

Mar_6:2  And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
Luk_4:16  And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
Luk_4:31  And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days.
33.5 years * 360 days = 12060
12060/7 = 1722.857
If actions speak louder than words. By Jesus’ action he kept the Seventh day over 1700 times.
Shall we not be safe in following the example of both the Father and the Son?
His Followers
Luk_23:56  And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
Paul’s Example
Act_16:13  And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.
Act_17:2  And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
Act_18:4  And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.
Paul said..
Act 25:8  While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all.
How could this be true if he had not kept the Sabbath?

John Kept the Sabbath
Rev_1:10  I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

Only for the Jews?
Gen_2:3  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.
Mar_2:27  And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man(anthrōpos=makind), and not man for the sabbath:
Note: the word “made” points you to creation.
It was “made” in the Garden of Eden before it was “written” down on Mount Sinai.
Act_13:42  And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.
Gentiles were worshiping on the Sabbath along with Jews.
Act_13:44  And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.
Luke, the inspired Christian historian, writing as late as A.D. 62, calls it the “sabbath day.” The next Sabbath in a Gentile city almost the whole city fellowshiped on the Sabbath. This speaks nothing about the whole city being in a synagogue.

The other nine commandments are not “just for Jews.” God wrote “Ten Commandments” on stone, not just nine
Deu_4:12  And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.
Deu_4:13  And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.
Does “Do not commit adultery,” “Do not murder,” “Do not steal,” and “Do not bear false witness” apply only to Jews?
Jas_2:10  For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
Exo_20:10  But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
“Strangers” are non-Jews, or Gentiles. Thus the Sabbath applies to them too.
Isa 58:12  And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
Isa_58:13  If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words[Psa_19:14]:
The Sabbath is mentioned in the New Testament fifty-nine times, and always with respect, bearing the same title it had in the Old Testament, “the sabbath day.”
Isa_56:6  Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;
Isa_56:7  Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
The chapter of Isaiah 56 is speaking entirely to the Christian dispensation
Isa 56:1  Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. ( Rom_1:16-17 Act_4:12)
All people are blessed if they keep the Sabbath not just the Jews.
Isa 56:2  Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
Luke was a Gentile who kept the Sabbath. Luke was the only Gentile who wrote any New Testament books (he wrote The Gospel According to St. Luke and The Acts of the Apostles). Luke traveled with Paul and wrote
Act_16:13  And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.
It was the seventh-day Sabbath, the memorial of the creation (Exo_20:10). Both Luke and Paul knew it.

The same Gentile writer of the New Testament, often refers to things that were particularly Jewish. He writes of the “nation of the Jews,”(Act_10:22) “the people of the Jews,”(Act_12:11) “the land of the Jews,”(Act_10:39) and the “synagogue of the Jews” (Act_14:1). But he never refers to the “sabbath of the Jews,” although he mentions the Sabbath repeatedly.

“All” mankind will keep the Sabbath in the New Earth.
Isa_66:22  For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
Isa_66:23  And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.
If this is the case – and it is – shouldn’t we start now?

It is not a Jewish institution, for it was made 2,300 years before ever there was a Jew.

The Bible never calls it the Jewish Sabbath, but always “the Sabbath of the Lord thy God.” Men should be cautious how they stigmatize God’s holy rest day.

Isn’t Sunday the Lord’s day?
Gen 2:3  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.
Exo 20:11  For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Lev 23:3  Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.
Mar_2:28  Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
Because Jesus did all of the work of creation.
Joh_1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
it was He that blessed the seventh day and rested with Adam on that first Sabbath in Eden.
Isa_58:13  If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
Exo_20:10  But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
Rev_1:10  I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
John kept the Sabbath

 

 

 

 

Can the true sabbath be located?

 

Luk 23:46  And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

Luk 23:52  This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
Luk 23:53  And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
Luk_23:54  And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
Luk_23:55  And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
Luk_23:56  And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
The commandment says “the seventh day is the sabbath”
Luk_24:1  Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
Luk_24:2  And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

Good Friday
Mar 15:38  And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
Mar 15:39  And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
Mar 15:40  There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
Mar 15:41  (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.
Mar 15:42  And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,

Mar 16:1  And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.

Mar 16:9  Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

1. He died Friday, the preparation day, commonly called Good Friday.
2. He rested in the tomb on the seventh day, Sabbath, “according to the commandment.” That was Saturday.
3. Then on Sunday, the first day of the week, Easter Sunday to many, Jesus arose from the grave.

 

  • Pope Gregory XII – 1582
  • Julius Ceasar – 46 BC
  • a year = 365 & 1/4 days – actually 11 minutes less
  • 46 BC to AD 1582  the 11 mins accumulated – 10 days out of sync of the solar system
  • Thursday October 4 1582 – Friday October 15 1582
  • When we keep the 7th day Saturday we keep the Same day Jesus rested every week according to the commandment Luk 4:16

 

The same Hebrew calendar is used today as was used by Jesus Christ.
The Jews haven’t changed their calender since then.

 

Jewish nation – millions of people – since time of Abraham
Only way lost a day – entire nation slept over 24 hours and no one ever told them afterwards.
There has been no change/loss since God made it in creation.

Orgin of week is found in creation story.
No scientific or astronomical reason for easuring time in cycles of seven days.
it has been miraculoously preserved 1 reason – HSD points to creative power of only true God.
It’s a sign of His sovereignty over the world over human life a sign of creation and redemption.

I worship God everyday
Mat_15:9  But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Mar_7:7  Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Joh_4:22  Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
Joh_4:23  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
Joh_4:24  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Why keep the sabbath?
The Seventh-day Sabbath Establishes God’s Sovereignty
Gen 2:1  Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
Gen 2:2  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
Gen 2:3  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.
God certainly anticipated the controversy over the Genesis account of Creation. He knew that after the fall of man, there would be doubts about His claims of manufacturing all the staggering mass of matter by merely commanding it to exist.

To safeguard His sovereignty, He established a mark that denoted His absolute right to rule as Lord. He chose to memorialize His display of creative power by setting aside the seventh day of the Creation week as a holy day of rest and remembering.
Exo 20:8  Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Why did God say remember? Because to forget the true Sabbath is to forget the true Creator.
Exo 20:9  Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
Exo 20:10  But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
Exo 20:11  For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can’t I just pick any seventh day to rest?

Every word of God’s Ten Commandments was written by His own hand in stone. Every word is serious and meaningful.

Satan wants the world to accept Sunday as the day he has chosen for worship, but any day will do for him so long as it means we’re breaking God’s command.

Gen 2:1  Thus the heavens and the earth we    jre finished, and all the host of them.
Gen 2:2  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
Gen 2:3  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.

Which day did God bless and sanctify? The seventh day.

How was it to be kept holy? By resting.

Could any of the other six be kept holy? No.

Why? Because God commanded not to rest those days but to work.

Does God’s blessing make a difference? Of course. Parents pray for God to bless their children because they believe it makes a difference. The seventh day is different from all the other days because it has God’s blessing.
1Ch 17:27  Now therefore let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may be before thee for ever: for thou blessest, O LORD, and it shall be blessed for ever.
Has God ever given man the privilege of choosing his own day of rest? No. In fact, God confirms in the Bible that the Sabbath is a matter settled and sealed by His own divine power.
Read Exo_16:1-35. For 40 years, God worked three miracles every week to show  Israel which day was holy:
(1) No manna fell on the seventh day;
(2) they could not keep manna overnight without spoilage;
(3) but when they kept manna over the Sabbath, it remained sweet and fresh!

But some Israelites had the same idea as many Christians have today. They felt that any day in seven would be okay to keep holy:
Exo 16:27  And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.
What happened?
Exo 16:28  And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?
God met them and accused them of breaking His law by going forth to work on the seventh day.
Would God say the same thing to those who break the Sabbath today? Yes.
Heb 13:8  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

The Sabbath is like a birthday.
Just as God instituted that day as a day of rest, or Sabbath Day.
The definition of Sabbath means rest.
When a person is born on a certain day that becomes his birth day.
So when so when God rested upon the Seventh day, that day became His rest, or Sabbath day.
Can you change your birthday from the day on which you were born to one on which you were not born?
No. Neither can you change God’s rest day to a day on which He did not rest.
Hence the seventh day is still God’s Sabbath day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus never commanded us to keep Sabbath?
Nowhere did He command that a different day should be kept or seek to cancel even the smallest of the commandments

Heb 1:1  God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Heb 1:2  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

Col 1:13  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Col 1:14  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Col 1:15  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Col 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Col 1:17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Eph 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

Gen 1:26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2  The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:14  And the Word(Rev_19:13) was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,(Joh_3:16) full of grace and truth.

 

 

this is a prophecy of the Messiah
Isa 42:21  The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.

Act 1:1  The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,
Luke the author of the book of Acts says that he wrote ALL of Jesus’ teachings. But he never wrote anything about Sunday-keeping or a change of the Sabbath.

Mat 5:17  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Mat 5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Mat 5:19  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Mat 24:20  But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
Christ expected His children to be keeping the Sabbath in 70 AD. That’s 40 years after His resurrection.
Jesus never mentioned Sunday in any way, never took its name upon His lips, so far as the record shows.

it goes further then 70 AD
Mat 24:1  And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
Mat 24:2  And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
Mat 24:3  And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

Mat 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
What day will Christ followers be going to church on durring the tribulation at the end of the world?
Mat 24:20  But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

Mat 12:12  How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
He taught His disciples that they should do nothing upon the Sabbath day but what was “lawful.”

Mat 12:8  For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

Who gave Moses the ten commandmets?
Exo 3:13  And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
Exo 3:14  And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
Note: “I AM” gave Moses the 10 commandments

Joh 8:58  Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
Joh 8:59  Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
Note: The Jews were about to stone Jesus because they know from the scriptures it was “I AM” who spoke to Moses on Mount Sina and gave the Ten Commantments. They were thinking that was blasphemy but little did they know it was Jesus who commanded His people to keep the sabbath that day. The Ten commandments belong to The Great “I AM THAT I AM”.

*9Jas 4:12  There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

Did you know it was Jesus who gave Moses the 10 commandments?
Joh 6:48  I am that bread of life.
Joh 8:12  I am the light of the world
Joh 10:14  I am the good shepherd
Joh 10:7  I am the door of the sheep.
Joh 11:25  I am the resurrection, and the life
Joh 14:6  I am the way, the truth, and the life
Joh 15:1  I am the true vine.
Rev 1:8  I am Alpha and Omega
Rev 1:17  I am the first and the last:
Joh 8:24  if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

 

Mat 5:17  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Eze 20:12  Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.
Note: The Sabbath is a sign or a seal (Rom_4:11) that makes a distinction between the world and God’s people. The Sabbath was given “that they might know that I AM”. It was given for us to know and have a personal relationship with our Savior.

If we love Jesus what will we be found doing?
Joh 14:15  If ye love me, keep my commandments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paul collected offerings on Sunday
1Co 16:1  Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
1Co_16:2  Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
1Co 16:3  And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
Paul instructs the Corinthians to set funds aside at home on the first day so that no offerings need to be taken during corporate worship on the Sabbath.
When this was written Rome was severely persecuting Jews and Christians. This was penned 10 years before 70 AD

It was customary among Jews to use a portion of their ithe to help those in financial need.
Deu 26:12  When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled;

It was customary among the Jews to convert the tithe of theirr herds, flocks, and harvest into money.
Money was much easier to carry to distant places like Jerusalem.
Deu 14:23  And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.
Deu 14:24  And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee:
Deu 14:25  Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose:
Deu 14:26  And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,
Money was not a commonmedium of exchange like it is today.
The exchange of goods and services was done with barter.
Since Paul would notbe able to travel to Jerusalem with a menagerie of sheep, goats, pottery, and other things of value, he asked the Corinthians to convert their gifts into cash, the first thing after the Sabbath has passed.

Paul did not suggest doing this on Sabbath because it would have been innappropriate.
Neh 13:15  In those days saw I in Judah some treading wine presses on the sabbath, and bringing in sheaves, and lading asses; as also wine, grapes, and figs, and all manner of burdens, which they brought into Jerusalem on the sabbath day: and I testified against them in the day wherein they sold victuals.

 

 

God forbade work upon the Sabbath, even in the most hurrying times.
Exo 34:21  Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.

 

It was made before the fall; hence it is not a type; for types were not introduced till after the fall.

The Sabbath is a memorial of creation.
Exo 20:11  For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Exo_31:13  Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.
Exo 31:14  Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
Exo 31:15  Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
Exo 31:16  Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
Exo 31:17  It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
Note: Every time we rest upon the seventh day, as God did at creation, we commemorate that grand event.
Exo 31:18  And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

Eze 20:20  And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.

Exo 19:5  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Deu 4:13  And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.

 

 It was a part of God’s law before Sinai.
Exo 16:4  Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.
Exo 16:27  And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.
Exo 16:28  And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?
Exo 16:29  See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.

Exo_5:5  And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many, and ye make them rest from their burdens.

Psa 111:7  The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.
Psa 111:8  They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth (Psa_119:141 Psa 119:) and uprightness.

Rom 5:13  (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

Eve Coveted the fruit and then stole it

Gen 2:17  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Gen 3:1  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Gen 3:2  And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
Gen 3:3  But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
Gen 3:4  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
Gen 3:5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Gen 3:6  And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Gen 3:7  And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Gen 4:7  If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Gen 13:13  But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
Note: The Sodomites were sinners before the Lord

Note: In the time of Abraham God spake the 10 commandments.

Gen 39:7  And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.
Gen 39:8  But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;
Gen 39:9  There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?
Gen 39:10  And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.
Note: Sin to break the 7th commandment

God consumed the Israelites in the wilderness because they profaned the Sabbath.
Eze 20:12  Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.
Eze 20:13  But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness: they walked not in my statutes, and they despised my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; and my sabbaths they greatly polluted: then I said, I would pour out my fury upon them in the wilderness, to consume them.

 

God promised that Jerusalem should stand forever if the Jews would keep the Sabbath.
Jer 17:24  And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently hearken unto me, saith the LORD, to bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the sabbath day, but hallow the sabbath day, to do no work therein;
Jer 17:25  Then shall there enter into the gates of this city kings and princes sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their princes, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: and this city shall remain for ever.

God sent his people into the Babylonish captivity for breaking the Sabbath.
Neh 13:18  Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath.

God destroyed Jerusalem for Sabbath violation
Jer 17:27  But if ye will not hearken unto me to hallow the sabbath day, and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first Day of the Week
Gen 1:5  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Note: God worked on the first day of the week.

Mat 28:1  In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
Note: The 1st day of the week comes after the sabbath.

Mar 16:1  And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
Mar 16:2  And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

Mar 16:9  Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

Luk 23:53  And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
Luk 23:54  And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
Luk 23:55  And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
Luk 23:56  And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
Luk 24:1  Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

Joh 20:1  The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

Joh 20:19  Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They broke bread on Sunday
This even took place about 30 years after Jesus ascended.
Within the 30 years not one text shows how Sunday has become the day of worship or that the disciples worshiped on Sunday.
Verily if Jesus’ death on the cross had made such a profound change concerning the day of worship this would have been a very controversial issue.
All of the disciples, including Paul with the exception of Luke were Jews and also Sabbath keepers.
Pauls writings leave no doubt that the question of what was nailed to cross was a matter of intense discussion for early believers.
Nothing is written in Acts or the New Testament about the sudden sacredness of Sunday or the sudden voidness of the Ten Commandments.

Act_20:7  And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
Act_20:8  And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together.
Act_20:9  And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.
Act_20:10  And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.
Act_20:11  When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.
Act_20:12  And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.
Note: I’ve listened to sermons on other days than Saturday. That doesn’t mean I was keeping it holy. What if he started on Sunday and preached until midnight. Still midnight would be the 2nd day. Which shows he was preaching on another day of the week besides sunday. That doesn’t mean he was keeping holy the sunday or monday.

 

Act_2:42  And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Act_2:46  And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
History records that Christians didn’t generally observe Sunday as a day of rest or worship until almost 300 years after Christ.

The Book of Acts alone gives a record of holding eighty-four meetings on Sabbath.
Act_13:14  But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down.
1 Sabbath
Act 13:44  And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.
Next Sabbath
Act 16:13  And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.
1 Sabbath
Act_17:2  And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
3 Sabbaths
Act_18:4  And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.
1 Sabbath
Act 18:11  And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
360 days + 180 days = 540 days
540 days / 7  days = 77  Sabbath meetings

1Co 16:1  Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
Note: Churches plural. Not just a just service. He is giving this collection to multiple churches.
1Co 16:2  Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
Note: He didn’t want anyone while he was there to gather up all the collections. He wanted them to just put it together on Sunday before he gets there.

 

 

 

Baptism is a Symbol of Ressurection
Rom 6:3  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Rom 6:4  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Rom 6:5  For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

Col 2:10  And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
Col 2:11  In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
Col 2:12  Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

Mat 24:20  But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
Christ expected His children to be keeping the Sabbath in 70 AD. That’s 40 years after His resurrection.

 

Thirty years after Christ’s resurrection, the Holy Spirit expressly calls it “the sabbath day.”
Act 13:14  But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down.

Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, called it the “sabbath day” in A.D. 45.
Act 13:27  For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.
Did not Paul know? Or shall we believe modern teachers, who affirm that it ceased to be the Sabbath at the resurrection of Christ?

 

In the great Christian council, A.D. 49, in the presence of the apostles and thousands of disciples, James calls it the “sabbath day.”
Act 15:21  For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

Psa 37:25  I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

Pro 19:1  Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.

 

 

But the infidel supposition, that the events of the first week required seven vast, indefinite periods for their accomplishment, strikes directly at the foundation of the Sabbath of the fourth commandment. It makes indefinite and obscure that which God has made very plain. It is the worst kind of infidelity; for with many who profess to believe the record of creation, it is infidelity in disguise. It charges God with commanding men to observe the week of seven literal days in commemoration of seven indefinite periods, which is unlike his dealings with mortals, and is an impeachment of his wisdom.  {ST, March 20, 1879 par. 3}
Infidel geologists claim that the world is very much older than the Bible record makes it. They reject the testimony of God’s word because of those things which are to them evidences from the earth itself that it has existed tens of thousands of years. And many who profess to believe the Bible are at a loss to account for wonderful things which are found in the earth, with the view that creation week was only seven literal days, and that the world is now only about six thousand years old. These, to free themselves from difficulties thrown in their way by infidel geologists, adopt the view that the six days of creation were six vast, indefinite periods, and the day of God’s rest was another indefinite period; making senseless the fourth commandment of God’s holy law. Some eagerly receive this position; for it destroys the force of the fourth commandment, and they feel a freedom from its claims upon them.  {ST, March 20, 1879 par. 4}
Note: Psalms breath heavens framed & heb 4 & is it the watch tower

 

___________________________________________________________

 

1. The very first thing recorded in the
Bible is work done on Sunday, the first day
of the week. (Genesis 1:1-5.) This was
done by the Creator Himself. If God made
the earth on Sunday, can it be wicked for us
to work on Sunday?

6. God Himself calls it a “working” day.
(Ezekiel 46:1.)

30. The first day of the week is
mentioned only eight times in all the New
Testament. (Matthew 28:1; Mark 16:2, 9;
Luke 24:1; John 20:1, 19; Acts 20:7;
1 Corinthians 16:2)
31. Six of these texts refer to the same
first day of the week.
32. Paul directed the saints to look over
their secular affairs on that day.
(1 Corinthians 16:2.)

 

 

Eze 22:26  Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.
Eze 22:31  Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

 

It is the sign of the true God, by which we are to know Him from false gods
Eze_20:20  And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.

 Sabbath has a sanctifying power
Eze_20:12  Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.
Note: Only the truth has sanctifying power.
Joh 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

 

Exo_31:12  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Exo_31:13  Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.
Exo_31:14  Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
Exo_31:15  Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
Exo_31:16  Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
Exo_31:17  It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
Exo_31:18  And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

Mat_12:11  And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
Mat_12:12  How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
Mat_12:13  Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

 

Rom 14:5  One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
Rom 14:6  He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

Rom 3:31  Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

Mat 5:17  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Mat 5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Mat 5:19  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Joh 15:10  If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
1Jn 2:6  He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

Col 2:14  Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
Col 2:15  And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Col 2:16  Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
Col 2:17  Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Lev 23:38  Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the LORD.

 

Exo 3:2  And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
Exo 3:3  And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.
Exo 3:4  And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
Exo 3:5  And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

When a king or a president is being inaguarated he calls all the counselors, statesmen, the magicians, astrologers, caldeans and all his people come and the king calls a gatheriing.

Now what would happened if ALL of the people come and are gathered together for the inaugaration and the king does not show up. What would be the point? It would mean nothing. the king needs to be present to make the decree official.

Likewise Jesus the king of kings. Why would he set up the Sabbath and have all of his people come to worship him on Sabbath and he himself does not show up? On the Sabbath Jesus WILL be there so much more seeing as he commanded us to be here.
