The Sabbath Day

"Oh I don't need to keep the Sabbath day, I just need to keep the greatest commandment, 'love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength'." ... Well, God gave us a special gift and set aside a specific day for us to rest and keep holy. SO DO YOU REALLY LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD?

The Sabbath day is a controversial subject in the Christian world today. But this is nothing new, as the Sabbath controversy has been raging for thousands of years. The 'Great Controversy' between Christ and Satan has been a long battle, and what has this battle been over? Worship! Satan wants the worship and adoration that only belongs to God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son. And while he is happy that the majority of the world is entertained by sin, he hates seeing Christians worshiping God alone and keeping the law of His universal government.

Just think about this for a moment: The fact that the Son of God had to come and die, due to man's transgression, gives unmistakable proof that the moral law of God cannot be changed. And those who seek to use the sacrifice of Christ as a means to sin and do away with God's holy law, or to change one of it's sacred precepts, will be held accountable by God, more than if Christ had never come!

What day is the Sabbath? Should we keep the Sabbath? These questions have dominated debates for years. So it is our hope and prayer that we can clearly answer these questions for you and come to a solid Biblical truth concerning the Sabbath day, throughout this website.

What is a relationship built upon? It is built upon love and spending time with each other right? And what did God give us in order to spend special time with Him each week? The seventh day Sabbath. Now Satan wants to destroy our relationship with God the Father and Jesus Christ His Son. So what could he do to achieve this? Destroy the very time that God set aside for us to spend in special communion with Him.

You see, God has set an 'appointed time' to meet with us each week. An appointed time wherein He is wanting to bestow a rich blessing upon us. And if we miss this special appointed time, then we miss out on the rich blessing. And what is that appointed time? It is the 7th day Sabbath. The only day of the week that God specifically set aside for holy use (Genesis 2:3; Exodus 20:8-11). And what did Jesus confirm concerning the 7th day Sabbath? It was 'made FOR man' (Mark 2:27). Which means we are to gain a blessing from it. But not from any day of the week. From the sepcific day that God 'blessed', to be a blessing for us - the 7th day of the week (our Saturday today).

No, we are not seeking to be like the Pharisees. We are seeking to be like Jesus.

Genesis 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.'

Exodus 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.'

Revelation 14:6-7 ...'And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.'

The final call is going out to the world, to turn back to the one true God and to worship Him who made heaven and earth. The one who set aside and blessed a specific day for us to keep holy, the 7th day (our Saturday). But Satan wants to keep the world bound up in the 'traditions of men' (Matthew 15:3), and ultimately cause the world to worship him, instead of Jehovah. This is a vital issue friend, and I pray that you will allow the Lord to teach you His truth as you search through this website. Do not be influenced by man, or even us. But compare what you read with scripture and let the Spirit of God show the way. May you be richly blessed as you allow God to lead you in the truth.
