The Sabbath is a day of physical rest and of spiritual
rejuvenation. It is not a day set aside for our own personal pleasures. It is
a day for the gathering together of God's people where available. And as shown
in scripture, prior to the destruction of the temple and the elimination of the
earthly priesthood, it was a time of gathering in joy and excitement, not one of
drudgery and subdued gatherings which occurred when men took over the reigns
using their own thinking.
The Sabbath (Saturday) was sanctified, making it a HOLY in Genesis 2:2-3
"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. 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."
Nowhere in the entire Bible can one find any scripture that
- That says to keep the first day of the week holy or to worship or rest on the first day of the week.
That shows any of the apostles keeping the first day of the week in lieu
of the Sabbath.
- Declares that the seventh day is no longer God's day.
That calls the seventh day the “Jewish” Sabbath or one calling the first day the “Christian”
That says the Sabbath has been done away.
That says to keep the first day in honor of the resurrection of the Christ.
