What Day Is the Sabbath
Welcome to my Bible Study about What Day Is the Sabbath post. For over 4,300 years, man kept God’s Sabbath as it is described in the Holy Bible. Sabbath was established at the end of Creation Week and was the first thing Adam experienced. Read Genesis 1 and 2.
Jesus kept the Sabbath. HE kept it even on the Cross when HE died for my sins. HE rested in the tomb on the Sabbath and was resurrected on the first day of the week. I have never found a single verse in the Bible that says we should keep Sunday holy because of HIS Resurrection.
When Jesus gave the New Covenant to His Disciples in the Upper Room on Thursday night, it was sealed when HE died on Good Friday.
If you have ever had party to a will, no one can change the will once the testator is deceased. So in order for Sunday to be the new Holy Day, Jesus would have said something to His Disciples.
Do a thorough study of the Book of Acts and you will come across many references to Paul being asked to return to the Synagogue on the Next Sabbath to preach to the Gentiles.
There has never been a problem with God’s Word the way it reads. Man has taken scriptures and formed tens of thousands of different faith organizations from one Bible. Several people over the years have made a comment to me about is it important What Day is the Sabbath. I chose to follow Jesus’s example myself.
If you come up with teachings that better reflect what the Bible says than the 28 fundamental Bible teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist church, I am open to a conversation with you.
And He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. 28 Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath.”
Pagan sun worship crept into the church during the reign of Constantine from 306 to 337, Sunday worship began and Christianity was decriminalized. A decree in the Catechism of the Catholic church acknowledges that Saturday, the seventh-day is the Sabbath day. The Catholic church says it has the power to change God’s Holy Day from the seventh-day Sabbath of Creation to the first day of the week which is Sunday.
In the Bible, Isaiah 66:21-23 says:
I will also take some of them for priests and Levites,” says the Lord.
“For as the new heavens and the new earth
Which I will make shall remain before Me,” says the Lord,
“So shall your descendants and your name remain.
And it shall come to pass
That from one New Moon to another,
And from one Sabbath to another,
All flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says the Lord.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
When Jesus comes to take the Righteous Living & Righteous Dead to heaven with Him ( see 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 ) man will once again keep God’s Sabbath Day.
I do not think following Jesus’s example in the Bible is Legalism. I think it is more about Loyalty.
There are eight first-day ( Sunday ) texts in the Bible but none of them say a word about worship on Sunday. Contact me via personal message for those scriptures.
