The True Day Of Worship.... You Be The Judge


The Sabbath, and the Lord’s Day are today the two main days Christians and the Jewish people worship God. On the Christian side, many argue that we should all worship on the original Sabbath day (Saturday), while others state, that since such day of worship was changed sometime in the first century A.D. to the Lord’s Day that we should in fact follow, and worship in it. There are many disagreements on who initiated such a drastic change. Many claim it was the Pope himself, while others say it was the church body itself and that the first Pope was not instated until almost 500 years after it began. Either way the fact is that it was indeed changed. Now the question is, what is the correct day of worship, or does it matter?

Let us start with Exodus 31-12:13: 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. And then in verse 16 it reads wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. Please note here that it reads “perpetual” meaning forever. Many hold to the claim that this was a covenant all in itself, outside of the Ten Commandments. It is said that the true children of Israel are in fact those who will honor this holy day and keep it .For as it states in the above scripture: “it is a sign between me and you”. Sabbath keepers claim that we are to still follow this Holy day due to its forever covenant and that it was God himself that declared it. Jesus himself followed the Sabbath as we see in Luke 4: 16. It reads He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. Many other Churches today however make the claim that since the resurrection of Christ we are no longer bound by any laws formerly given in the Old Testament, and that it is not required of us to follow such day anymore.

A majority of Christian churches today have accepted and worship on Sunday, the first day of the week. Many Christians hold to scriptures such as Romans 14:5-6 one man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. He, who regards one day as special, does so to the Lord. He, who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. The claim is made that this scripture tells us that it depends on the spiritual maturity of the individual to whether or not it is right or wrong. That because we live by the spirit and not the law, to have to follow this covenant is not relative to the Christian walk today. Basically meaning if a person believes it to be a sin, then it is. Whether this scripture truly relates to our day of worship, or special holidays, or even the clean or unclean foods that we eat is question to think upon. Today let each man or woman contemplate on if this topic has merit. Should we in fact follow the Biblical Sabbath, or is our normal Sunday worship satisfactory with the father? Did man have the right to change this day? You be the judge.

The true sabbath is on Saturday, and we who are Christians, should follow it as the Sabbath day.
Many Christians today feel that Sunday is the Sabbath day because they wanted to be different
from the Jews, but what they don't understand is that, they are not different.

This is how I look at it, I was not born a Jew, but by the Blood of Jesus, I am adopted into the family of God, so therefore that make me a Jew by the Blood of Jesus, therefore I am to follow the true sabbath day.
God's word and laws stand true to today just as the did from the beginning of time.

From sundown Friday or 6 p m to sundown or 6 p m Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Jesus followed the true Sabbath day, and so should all Christians and Jews, God made the Sabbath day Law
and God's Laws do not change.

Rev. Kent, I still can't see what you are posting. Since I am one of the administrators on this site, chances are no one else is able to see your postings. The reason you may be able to see your own postings is because you changed the formate of your profile page which includes the colors. I recommend you change the text color to white since we have a black background. There may be other things you can do to ensure your blogs are readable but I am somewhat of a novice with ning. God bless.
