Remember the Sabbath Day, to Keep it Holy

Wednesday, October 12, 2016 18:16
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(Before It's News)

I am now aware that all Jews and Christians are to “Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it Holy”.

Adam and Eve both sinned, so it didn’t really matter who sinned first. Adam received more blame because he was to be the spiritual leader and protect his wife. Protestants and Catholics throughout history have both been deceived by Satan and the Anti-Christ. They are in the same boat, christened CARNALITY, and sailing in the sea of deception, extolling the virtues of spiritually sailing in the wrong direction; and someday will wreck their ship against the Rock of Our Salvation, the Word of God and His commandments.

Most of humanity has a belief in a creator God, and we all want to perceive we have been taught the truth about our tenants of faith. We live in a fallen world where truth and error are seeking to grow in our fertile field of belief systems.

And what I will be sharing with you is in no way am I trying to attack or destroy your strong or weak faith. If you are a child of God, you are aware that Satan will deceive many people throughout the history of mankind. Everyone from Adam and Eve down to us has been and will continue to struggle with “WHAT IS TRUTH”

I have empathy for and a little anxiety with any professor who teaches history for 30 plus years and then finds out that historians were either lied to or were misinformed about what “Really” happened in the past.

To unknowingly believe a lie is forgivable, and understandable. To embrace and propagate a belief error simple because tradition is a safer place to hide when the truth of God reveals our spiritual nakedness and we hope our clothes of human tradition will cover us; take away our shame and give us a peace of mind, that we are believing and doing the will of God in our thoughts and actions.

Satin is sometimes perceived as an angel of light when we view his actions lived out in the lives of humans. The anti-Christ will be a political and religious person INSIDE THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH, who will appear righteous and hide his real identity and purpose. He will point back to Nero and say he was the anti-Christ, or he will point to the future and say in a future time the Anti-Christ will start a future tribulation and kill billions.

Later on I will tell you who was initially responsible for breaking the 4th Commandment and teaching others to do the same!!!

THESE IRREFUTABLE FACTS CONCERNING THE SABBATH DAY OF THE LORD

1. All Jews and gentile Christians are to honor the Sabbath Day, and keep it Holy.

2. Jesus never taught or suggested Christians should worship on the first day of the week.

3. Jesus told His disciples he would be betrayed, killed but later resurrected, but never hinted to them that they should drop Sabbath worship for Sunday worship.

4. Jesus was on earth for 50 days after the resurrection and was seen by over 500 people but never hinted He wanted anyone to abolish the 4th Commandment.

5. No apostle of Christ after the resurrection wrote anything in scripture stating a special need to honor Jesus Christ on Resurrection Sunday.

6. The Lord’s Supper and the ordinance of Baptism are what we do to honor the Lord Jesus Christ. You can do that “In remembrance of Him” 365 days a year, if you want to.

7. God’s Sabbath Day of rest predates the Jewish Nation, the 10 Commandments, Adam and Eve’s sin in the garden; and has its origin, being the following day after the last day of creation.

8. The Sabbath belongs to God and is not a Jewish tradition that they started.

9. Jesus kept the Sabbath. He is the Lord of The Sabbath and he expects everyone else to do the same.

10. Jesus never mentioned “The first day of the week”, before the crucifixion or after the resurrection; nor did any of His disciples instruct anyone to worship on Sunday.

11. No one in the scriptures authorized anyone to change the Bible Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday. And if you honor the Sabbath Day, but tell others they don’t have to honor The Sabbath Day; you still are breaking the Sabbath by your “False witness”.

12. The Seventh Day is the Lord’s Day (Saturday). God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it.

13. You can’t say the Jews have 10 Commandments and the Christian Gentiles only have 9 Commandments to live by.

14. The Sabbath Day points to the Creator of the world.

15. The Sabbath remains after the Cross. The Disciples of Christ were told to rest on the Sabbath.

16. Jesus died for our sins—-one of which is Sabbath breaking (not honoring the Saturday of worship and rest!!!

17. The Sabbath will continue into eternity.

18. Jesus kept over 1000 Sabbath Days; from 12 years of age to age 33 (52×21 years=1092 Sabbath Days.

19. Jesus said “If you love me, keep my Commandments”, He meant all 10 Commandments.

20. Sunday did not become sacred because it is Resurrection Day.

21. Luke wrote his book about 28 years after the resurrection telling us the Christians rested on the Sabbath Luke 23:56. But didn’t indicate that the Sabbath is now, a day that Christians can reject, ignore, change or abolish.

22. All the Christian Apostles and Disciples keep the Sabbath all their lives.

23. The Apostles could only teach what Jesus commanded them to say. Jesus never mentioned Sunday, so neither would they talk about Sunday nor think of it as a special day.

24. Many times the Bible says the disciples traveled on the first day of the week—–but they never did travel on Saturday the Sabbath (at least not very far!!!

25. “Sunday can not be part of the New Covenant because it began after the blood was shed”.

26. Isaiah said gentiles should keep the Sabbath. Isaiah 56:6,7 In Acts 13:42,43 gentiles wanted the word preached to them on the next Sabbath.

27. “The whole law is for the entire world not just for the Jews”

28. In the New Testament there was a controversy over, can I eat meat offered to idols. The Christians never asked, “Can I worship on Sunday and rename and designate Sunday as a Christian Sabbath.

29. “The seventh day Sabbath points back to the creation of the world and remains in the New Testament”

30. We should worship God every day of the week, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord.

31. “Baptism and the Lords’ Supper are how we remember and honor the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. To justify breaking a Commandment of God in order to honor Jesus Christ is being naïve or spiritually blind at best and is Demonic in the worst case scenario.

32. Christians going to Church on Sunday isn’t proof that God is pleased with their Sunday worship. Only 8 people got in Noah’s Ark; outside the Ark the majority ruled in their wrong decision and the majority drowned in their act of rebellion. Sunday worship is a sin when a person presumes Sunday worship has equal importance to God, for His 4th Commandment can not be honored on any of the other six days of the week; Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday!!! BUT ONLY ON SATURDAY IS HIS COMMANDMENT FULFILLED, COMPLETED AND HONORED.

33. The Romans worshiped the sun god on Sunday and when some Christians moved their day of worship to Sunday they experienced much less persecution because that action put distance between them and the Sabbath keeping Jews and Christians; who were persecuted and killed for their Jewish connection.

34. Jesus never instructed Christians to abandon the Sabbath Day of worship and rest.

35. You extol the virtues of Sunday worship and completely ignore and break God’s commandment, SHAME ON YOU, REPENT!!!

36. Satan and the anti-Christ want you to break all of the Commandments. The easiest and most subtle way to break the 4th Commandment is to pretend that God doesn’t “really” care which day you choose.

37. Satan and the anti-Christ will say “If you really love Jesus” you need to have a different day of the week to honor, worship and praise the Lord Jesus Christ” apart from the Sabbath Day.

38. Jesus will say, you can’t honor me if you dishonor God and His word and willfully break the Law and command or encourage others to do the same.

39. Spiritual Israel, are all Jews and gentiles who are descendents of Isaac (the child of God’s promise) and have a relationship with Jesus the Christ.

40. Modern Israel are children of Ishmael who are separated from God.

41. It is true that the early Church had meetings house to house, most days of the week. Bur on the Sabbath they (Jew and gentile Christians all went to their local Synagogue.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DESTROYING GOD’S SABBATH DAY OF WORSHIP AND REST?

“The Catholic Church over 1000 years before the existence of a protestant changed the day of worship at their meeting of the Counsel of Laodicea in 338 A.D. and moved their day of worship from Saturday to Sunday”. The Protestants Kept the tradition of the Catholics and also denied God’s 4thCommandment; to “Remember the SabbathDay and keep it Holy”. All of the Apostles and early church fathers are dead so the Anti-Christ was able to get the Pope to destroy the Sabbath Day of our heavenly Father, and institute our present non-Biblical traditions handed down to us.

The Bible says “Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it Holy” “The Catholic Church says NO.”

“By my divine power I abolish the Sabbath Day and command you to keep the first day of the week.” “And lo! The entire civilized world bows down in reverent obedience to the command the Holy Roman Catholic Church”

The Bible also says “All the world wondered after the beast Revelation 13.3″

The sincere Catholic parishioners (and the Protestants) have blindly obeyed traditions of men and have become pawns of Satan, the anti-Christ and the false prophet, and unknownly help to destroy the Sabbath Day of worship and rest.

Martin Luther, John Calvin and many others knew that the anti-Christ is the Church of Rome’s leader (not just one man), it is the OFFICE OF THE PAPACY.

Alert, alert, alert, spiritual danger ahead; honor the Sabbath day and keep it Holy in Jesus name I pray!!!

You don’t have to join a SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH in order to be in fellowship with God and His Word; but you do have to repent, acknowledge you dis-honor God’s Sabbath Day.  Have your church leaders and the congregation of Believers where you WORSHIP, return to Saturday Worship and seek to now obey the 4th Commandment. 

Believing in only 9 Commandments is a very serious sin against God and His Word; it is worse than murder, adultery and child molestation, simply because your sin is against God Himself and not just an act against humanity!!!  Let me know you now believe in 10 Commandments, I will rejoice with you in you “Keeping the Faith”, and being part of the faithful “Remnant” few, that believed the truth  about Sabbath Day Worship. 

If you don’t have a way to get to a church that meets on Saturday, I pray that God will bless you with a car so that you can truly honor God on HIS DAY.  If you have to work on the Sabbath, then acknowledging the 4th Commandment means you love God and reject Satan’s control on your life.  If your church won’t repent, then change churches, if you ”Truly Love Jesus” and God will bless you. 

I give a special thanks to Mr Steve Wohlbergfor his books, especially “End Time Delusions” that opened my eyes to the truth about The Sabbath Day of rest.

    “Adam received more blame because he was to be the spiritual leader and protect his wife.”

    The bigger issue is that Adam obeyed Eve instead of God. That is an inversion of righteousness – and that is why Adam received the most direct rebuke and punishment from God.

    “To unknowingly believe a lie is forgivable, and understandable.”

    What is understandable about believing a lie when we have inherited the written Word of God? It is our job to learn what is true and what is not. It is incumbent upon every man who ever lived to involve himself in the search for truth. A life not engaged in the pursuit of truth is a life wasted and one which will result in a trip to the land of the dead.

    “The anti-Christ will be a political and religious person INSIDE THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH…”

    Have you any biblical basis for this claim?

    Per your list of numbers 1 through 41:

    1 through 11 — I would agree with everything written.

    12 – Though the Seventh Day is indeed the Sabbath, the Seventh Day is absolutely not Saturday. The Most High has His own means for keeping time and it involves neither the pagan Gregorian calendar nor pagan-named days. (It is also most certainly NOT the rabbi’s lunar calendar, nor any form of lunar calendar whatsoever.) God’s system for keeping time is outlined in Scripture for the studious seeker and it is confirmed for us in the Qumran Library.

    13 through 19 I agree with.

    20 – Sunday is not resurrection day. The resurrection took place on the Eighth Day – which is also the First Day but the eighth is most prophetically important; vis the eighth day (the great day) of the feast and the eighth millennium.

    “To justify breaking a Commandment of God in order to honor Jesus Christ is being naïve or spiritually blind at best and is Demonic in the worst case scenario.”

    Truth. Just ask Aaron and Jeroboam.

    21 through 38 I would agree with, except wherein you use the pagan day terms which have no meaningful connection with the Faces of YHWH – (as in the Lechem HaPaniym – the Bread of Faces, or the showbread, on the table in the temple which exemplifies His system for time-keeping) which are to instruct us in times and seasons and days and years.

    “Spiritual Israel, are all Jews and gentiles who are (descendants) of Isaac (the child of God’s promise) and have a relationship with Jesus the Christ.”

    That’s not Spiritual Israel – that’s REAL Israel; both in the spirit AND in the flesh.

    “Modern Israel are children of Ishmael who are separated from God.”

    Really? On what scriptural or prophetic evidence do you base this claim? (The truth of modern Israel’s identity is actually far more stunning.)

    “WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DESTROYING GOD’S SABBATH DAY OF WORSHIP AND REST?”

    He’s pleased to meet you. Hope you guess his name.

    “…the anti-Christ is the Church of Rome’s leader (not just one man), it is the OFFICE OF THE PAPACY.”

    Something else you should probably withhold judgment about. There is no way ὁ ἄνθρωπος τῆς ἀνομίας (the Man of Lawlessness) will be a mere mortal man. The pope of Rome will almost certainly baptize the Man of Lawlessness and it will be a big deal because the pope will be baptizing a new creation. The Man of Lawlessness will be the ‘god’ (false idol) created by mankind. Follow the progress of technology and quantum computing. Follow the progress of bio-mechanical interface. Project these trajectories into the (near) future and imagine the culmination of it all. That’s our ὁ ἄνθρωπος τῆς ἀνομίας – because there is NO WAY this world will line up to worship a white man, or a man of ANY mere mortal color for that matter. It has to be something new, different and spectacular. And it will be. Just consider how many times we read in Scripture NEVER to worship a god made with men’s hands. The fulfilment of those warnings, and the most important example of their subject, is what this world is laboring to produce.

    “…return to Saturday Worship…”

    We can do that. But we must be aware of the FACT that if we do so we will still not have arrived at the correct day. Saturday is the Seventh Day all year long, but for only one year in seven. Which year? At present we are prevented from obtaining that knowledge. As much was prophesied. Not knowing the actual Seventh Day is part of our punishment for disobedience. All things will be restored in time, but we do well not to become arrogant about ‘Saturday’ which has nothing to do with the biblical Seventh Day.

    Personally, I rest on Saturday because right now Saturday is the only seventh day I can find with any certainty. But I know that Saturday is not His Sabbath. We do what we can with what we have where we are, and if we are faithful, He will be faithful to restore us to our former state.

    Good article, Arthur.

    • TCB, I am glad you are bold as a lion, and I am still licking my wounds from our past encounter L.O.L. Thanks for the compliment you shared.

      Adam and Eve blamed each other and the snake. There is no longer any superiority in being a male or female. Bulling, patriarchal and domineering males run all religions, and societies that I know of. Margaret Thatcher could stand her ground and be a formidable foe against any man, but most women are usually subservient to males and don’t get the lions share of power, fame or fortune.

      Males are on the average stronger than females; therefore they are responsible to protect them. If females were 30 or 40 percent stronger than men I would cry out to a woman to come to my rescue. Cynthia Eller wrote a book stating that the matriarchal society is a myth of matriarchal prehistory (“an invented past won’t give women a future”.

      I am aware that the days of the week are pagan titles: Monday – goddess of the moon, Tuesday – Germanic god Tiu, Thursday – Norse god of thunder and Saturday – Roman god of wealth, plenty and time. Christians and Jews will say the Sabbath is a day of rest (I think the Muslims also). But I don’t know the non-pagan names for the 7 days of the week (tell me if you know).

      Isaac was the Child of Promise and Ishmael was the child of lust or passion. A book called “End Time Delusions” said that Martin Luther believe the Pope is the Anti-Christ (saying things against Christ makes him or anyone and everyone an anti-Christ (in a sense).
      ¬¬¬
      Steve Wohlberg, a writer, wrote a book titled End Time Delusions, The Rapture, the Antichrist, Israel, and the End of the World. In the book he said a Jesuit priest was commissioned to put forth the idea that the Anti-Christ was Nero, in the past; another Jesuit priest was commissioned to put forth that the Anti-Christ was a person in the future, in order to hide the fact from Christians that the Anti-Christ was in fact someone inside the church. I don’t have the brainpower to understand and determine these Theological views and know what is “Truth”.

      There is a Bible verse that says, “We see in a mirror dimly”. Which means, most humans disagree with all other humans (even in the same denomination). I think what I mostly want to do in life is to better understand “Myself” and others better. Learn how to express myself, listen and learn from TCB and others; and try to love God, self and others more completely. In the next life, we will be on the “Same page” with the billions of humans who are made in the Image of God and we will someday believe everything that others tell us !!!

      I don’t understand why our pagan named Saturday would change. I know farmers will let the land go fallow for 7 years (which will change) but I think the Sabbath is a specific day of the week (1 our of 7 days to rest on, even when is has a pagan origin).

        “…still licking my wounds from our past encounter…”

        Did you go to work and leave your armor at home? Paul the apostle will have stern words for you.

        “Adam and Eve blamed each other and the snake.”

        That they did. And we know how The Boss views excuses, don’t we. My bet is they did too.

        “There is no longer any superiority in being a male or female.”

        It isn’t an issue of superiority – it’s one of difference and of simple order. Men and women are different. The man is the covering of the woman and Christ is the covering of the man. That’s the commandment for as long as we abide in this world. But in Christ there is neither Greek nor Jew, neither bond nor free, neither male nor female.

        “Bulling, patriarchal and domineering males run all religions, and societies that I know of.”

        You’re watching that reverse itself. Soon women will be running a great many things they shouldn’t be – contrary to the instructions of God. The god of this world is actually a goddess.

        “Males are on the average stronger than females; therefore they are responsible to protect them.”

        That destroys any notion of equality between men and women. Men and women are not equal physically, spiritually, mentally or emotionally. (Something else we witness presently is the feminization of men. Satan intends to turn all of creation on its head. Satan’s M.O. is erasing all boundaries and mingling all seed.)

        “But I don’t know the non-pagan names for the 7 days of the week (tell me if you know).”

        Neither the days nor the months have names in God’s system. They have only numbers. You will no doubt have noticed pagan month names used in the Old Testament, but those pagan month names were always in reference to the Babylonian calendar (or some variant of it) being used by the Israelites at that time and were never in reference to God’s system. Some say God called His first month Aviv. But a careful examination of the appropriate Scriptures reveals that He said the month OF THE aviv – which is to say, the first month of His system is the month that barley in the land becomes ripe. Modern day rabbinists dispatch inspectors to check the barley and base the first month of their own calendar upon what the creation does. That is an inversion. The creation is only a witness to God’s system – God’s system is not governed by the creation.

        “Martin Luther believe the Pope is the Anti-Christ…”

        Many of the ‘reformers’ believed the same. The Church of Rome and its pope play an unarguable role in prophecy – but no mere man was or will be THE anti-Christ. THE anti-Christ will be singularly personified in a very specific fulfillment of the many prophecies which make it clear that THE anti-Christ is yet to come. But there have been many anti-Christs.

        “I don’t have the brainpower to understand and determine these Theological views and know what is “Truth”.”

        Yes you do. Anything you lack you lack because you have not asked. And remember the command to SEEK.

        “We see in a mirror dimly…”

        Thus the Apostle Paul warned us to withhold judgment until the time. We cannot know anything to an immortal certainty – all we can do is believe. Our imperfect knowledge will begin to yield to perfect knowledge at the time of His return when all things are revealed.

        “I think what I mostly want to do in life is to better understand “Myself” and others better.”

        ΓΝΩΘΙ ΣΕΑΥΤΟΝ

        You probably know what that is. That’s the inscription found at the Oracle at Delphi. That’s the Clarion Call of this world, Arthur. It is: KNOW THYSELF. And do you know what else? That’s the enemy speaking right there. That’s an inversion of God’s Instructions to us. What were His Instructions to us?

        KNOW YOUR GOD.

        The only way we can ever rightly know ourselves is to obey His commands to us. He says we should know Him. So perhaps that is what you should mostly want to do in this life, rather than to follow after Apollo.

        “…try to love God…”

        Come to know Him and see whether you can stop yourself loving Him. Always do what He said to do first – and in the order in which He says to do it. That’s how to make everything work, Arthur. It’s how to get everything we could ever want and even much we never knew to want. If that sounded selfish, it is a little bit. But even selfishness has its correct place in the hierarchy of His created order – it just isn’t at the top.

        “I don’t understand why our pagan named Saturday would change.”

        Joshua tampered with the clockwork of the Heavens and he never cleaned up his mess. As a result, there is a 1.24+ day discrepancy between our modern sidereal year and the Faces of YHWH. When Messiah walked in the land, certain Israelites knew how to properly account for that discrepancy and how to calculate their way through it so as not to upset the feast schedule or the Sabbaths. We lost that knowledge and now we abide in darkness, substituting profane days for holy days. As I say, this is all a part of our punishment for disobedience. But it is not an excuse to stop searching. The answers are coming. Many of them have come already and have been made accessible to us.

        “I know farmers will let the land go fallow for 7 years…”

        The command is to let the land rest every seventh year. There are still farmers who do that.

        “I think the Sabbath is a specific day of the week (1 our of 7 days to rest on, even when is has a pagan origin).”

        Your opinion has no bearing on what is real, Arthur. The answers all exist outside of ourselves and we don’t have to come to the table wondering or guessing at any of it. If it’s important, He’s made the answers available to us and the Sabbath is important. You do as your spirit convicts you to do. But don’t ever rest on worthless things like feelings (the heart is desperately wicked) or opinions (the vain imaginations of men) when He’s given us viable foundational evidence upon which to rest our conclusions. When we build on His foundations, our work will abide. But when the world has what sounds like a bullet-proof argument (like a calendar with weeks of seven days), beware or suffer loss.

    • …TCB…Yo my brother…Here’s an excerpt from your post above…

      ” Follow the progress of bio-mechanical interface. Project these trajectories into the (near) future and imagine the culmination of it all.

      …I follow your reasoning, and it is compelling, but I’ve deduced another credible explanation, “extraterrestrial” intervention. See if you can follow my elementary analysis…
      …before we continue, an understanding of two pieces of hidden info, is necessary…first, that the Naphal assumed physical form, and we are being introduced to them as “spacemen”…and secondly…this earth IS the Naphals’ assigned habitation, since the katabole, and nuclear warfare would screw up their home, for thousands of years…
      …Ceding these two prerequisites, we can see that it is important for these supernaturals to ‘preserve’ this planet, in as pristine a condition as possible.

      …The end game this go-round is a false flag…running imminent, nuclear holocaust, up the pole…scaring the holy crap out of the earth’s population…and then:
      …a supernatural being (from outer space)…miraculously appears, and “creates” peace…where only mortal fear existed. I think all our signs are pointing directly at this…but then…we all know, I’m extremely insane.
      …F’sure, we’ll know more about this in no time at all….

  • Colossians 2:16-17 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat or in drink, or in respect of a festival day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbaths, Which are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Christ.”

    The Sabbath is no more. Christians honor and celebrate the day Christ rose from the dead. He also started the Church on a Sunday(Pentecost.)

    • Hello C Trent:

      The Sabbath Day belongs to God and not humans. On the 1st Sabbath Days rest, Adam and Eve are the only humans on planet earth, for there were no Jews in order to call it a Jewish tradition of rest.

      We express our love for Jesus The Christ in 2 ways: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (for Jesus has no inclination or desire to steal the Sabbath from the Father. The Sabbath Day of Rest that Adam and Eve participated in was the “Last day of the week”. God worked the 1st 6 days and then rested on the 7th day, the last day of the week. Christians do just the “Opposite” to God’s workweek, FOR THEY REST on the “First day of the week” and work the next 6 days. Our ways should be God’s ways and not counterintuitive to what God would expect or do.

      Our work and rest should coincide with pleasing God, and not our legalistic frantic endeavor to force our “Freedom in Christ” against the know wishes of our Father God. About a 1,000 years before the Protestant Reformation the Catholic Church in 338 A.D. passed a decree mandating that all Christians worship on Sunday. Mainly because Christians couldn’t go to Jewish Temples or Synagogues on the Sabbath Day and say Jesus is Lord, Jesus is Risen, or Jesus is the Messiah, plus it was very dangerous to travel on the Sabbath Day for you might be killed for your Jewish heritage or being presumed Jewish. Therefore Christians started there own day of worship tradition and “Spiritualized” the reason (let’s give Jesus his own special day to honor him and it’s ok to ignore the day that the Father chose to rest on.

      If a person has to work on the Sabbath Day of Rest then we are not bound to a Sabbath Day, they are free in Christ to worship on any of the other 6 days. But if you are free to worship on the Sabbath Day and you don’t then you are not pleasing God. If you worship on the Sabbath Day of Rest but you encourage Christian to ignore the Sabbath Day of Rest, then you displease God for not telling others the TRUTH about Sabbath Day rest.

      Sincerely,
      ArthurTrafford.com

      P.S. Jesus didn’t raise himself, God did; therefore the Resurrection Sunday does not trump the Sabbath Day of rest. Plus Christians deify the body of Jesus is one reason they choose Sunday. And Satan is totally pleased that the 4th Commandment is “No more” part of the 10 COMMANDMENTS, for most Christians can only say they believe in 9 Commandments L.O.L.

      • plus it was very dangerous to travel on the Sabbath Day for you might be killed for your Jewish heritage or being presumed Jewish.

        They don’t use men as the measuring stick of God. That is what unitarians do though traditionally they do not admit that they reject Christ in favor of regressing to being demonic God Fearers (You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that–and shudder).

        The Ten Commandments were not given to Christians. Their salvation is not bound to them and mere shudderers at God will never be able to fulfill a law that was not given to them (this is the imbecilic ‘Legalism’ of unitarians).

      • And you are still trying to push the Murican post-Zionist God Fearing worship of a human Jesus.

        “JESUS AS GOD OUT, JEWS AS GODS IN!” :neutral: :roll: :roll: :roll:

      • ArthurTrafford

        “We express our love for Jesus The Christ in 2 ways: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (for Jesus has no inclination or desire to steal the Sabbath from the Father.”

        Arthur I have absolutely no problems with GOD’s Sabbath, I love it – but if you want to make statements as above first make sure they are sound according to the Word of GOD.

        John 14

        5 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

        this is how we show love towards Christ, by obeying HIM.

        Luke 6

        46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

        If a person “loves” Jesus Christ they will be “doing” what Christ commanded !

        Trent, you are on the right path, keep moving forward on that path – it is a long journey.

        The “spiritual Passover”, the wine and the unleavened bread, which has been called “The Lord’s Supper” is taken once a year on the night of the 14th of Nisan. Christ was slain in the evening of the 14th of Nisan at the 9th hour — our 3 PM. The evening is from 12 noon until sundown, thus the 9th hour is mid afternoon.

        Christ was placed in the tomb moments before sundown ended the 14th.

        Christ IS our Passover.

        When we partake of His blood and flesh we are renewing our commitment to the covenant and the wine i.e. the blood of Jesus Christ is taken into our bodies to cleanse us from sin from the inside where sin comes from.

        His flesh (unleavened bread) is eaten to symbolizes eternal life coming from Christ into to those the Father gives to Christ.

        None can come to Christ unless the Father first draws them. It is not up to man to seek salvation on his own, it is the gift of God and HE alone determines what that time occurs.

        • …And don’t forget, truthseeker KNOWS all things about YHVH and every nuance of just how to worship…Nobody else has a clue…in his viewpoint. He refuses to see how he has elevated himself. In his mind, only he, and he alone is even partly aware of any of the higher knowledge….all the rest may as well go and make reservations for the flight to hell…as far as his OPINION goes.

          • Maxwell

            At least what I – do – “know” can be backed up by numerous scriptures.

            You and many others like destined2Blost must cherry pick and avoid the clear ones.

            Maxwell – there is no “hell” and this is not the only day of salvation.

            If what you believe were true — the vast majority of humanity are then destined for that hell you think is real.

            The Creator of man has no interest in seeing even one person lose out on the gift of eternal life or be punished for all eternity — but His plan of salvation predetermines when each one of us will be called and given our one chance for eternal life.

            The “few”, during the 6000 years are called — these are the First Fruits and after the 1000 years of the rule of Christ the many ( maybe 100 billion) will get their one opportunity.

          • Still waiting on your scriptural explanation for your FIVE Gods Troothytits.

            If the Godhead El Elyon, YHWH, Jesus, the Holy Ghost and Troothytits Mosesied up into a bar …. who would the white wine spritzer be for? :lol:

          • …And ‘judgmental’ too…
            As far as i am concerned your opinions, are just that. I think you are self elevated in your thinking, believing you know…what the scriptures even mean..in most cases. Your viewpoints are actually earthly viewpoints…I don’t even think you know what SPIRITUALITY, is…first hand…You’re still thinking its all tied to your own particular biases. Its not. We aren’t required to EARN our salvation, like you think you need to.
            … There’s a whole universe out there that you have failed to ask YHVH
            about…Every man has Christ as Savior and shield, FOR THE ASKING…Despite how YOU WANT it to be. If your limitations were to become everybody’s tenets of belief…Nobody would make the cut…I think that is your goal. nasty business.
            …Everyone YOU don’t agree with is doomed…huh? Go to hell, devil…On the way, don’t forget about bowing to YOUR earthly traditions. Maybe your infernal master will appreciate that.
            …Worldly traditions can’t help you, now. But you can’t be led any farther into delusion than you have been already…
            …You and Lucifer, HOLIER than THOU…till the end.

            …Satan tempted Christ with scripture…Seeker.

  • Well i’m fairly gobsmacked, Arthur, and had written you off as irredeemable only to find you’re not so set in your ways as i had thought. To go from hardly agreeing with you to mostly agreeing is a first, for me, here in the Bins. Well done and i’m impressed that you’ve stuck around given i’d expected you to have deleted your account and fled by now.

    Regarding The Antichrist i think you’d benefit from reviewing Paul’s explanation (2 Thess), to those who believed that The Antichrist had already come, that the prophecy would be fulfilled in the future. Yes there have been and are many who are against Christ but there is still one to come whom i understand to be The Beast out of the Sea (Rev 13:1-4) especially considering the description parallels the prophets of old particularly Moses (Ex 15:11) and Isaiah (Isa 46:5).

    Regarding the names of the days of the week. They were not named (Gen 1&2) only numbered.

    Regarding the sabbath. It was made for man not man for it (Mark 2:27) and i also set aside Saturday even though i know it’s correct only 1 year out of 7.

    Regarding leaving the land to lie fallow. This is done 1 year out of 7 (Ex 23:11) and not for 7 years as you stated.

    Regarding certain sins being worse than others consider what God hates, or finds abominable (Prov 6:16-19), which seems to be the opposite of your argument. I wonder if we will be punished for not knowing which day to keep (ignorance) or for the disobedience that caused our not knowing.

  • Arthur Trafford

    Christ was NOT resurrected on the first day of the week or the 8th day!

    Why would God the Father do this most important event on a day HE HAD NEVER EVER MADE HOLY?

    Christ was resurrected on the THIRD DAY, after 3 days and 3 nights in the grave and that 3rd day was the day Christ IS LORD OF! Which is the ONLY sign given that He IS the Savior.

    Moments before sundown on the 7th day Sabbath Christ rose for death to eternal life.

    Christ was “cut off” at mid week; Christ was slain on the 4th day of the week (mid week) and exactly at mid week of His 7 years of confirming the Covenant: at exactly 3 1/2 years.

    He began His ministry on His 30th birthday and He was born on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles.

    To work in the Temple a priest must be 30 years of age and Christ begin to teach in the Temple during a Feast of Tabernacles.

    From Passover, the 15th day of the first month until the 15 day of the 7th month is exactly 1/2 of a year.

    Christ returned to the Father on the 40th day after He was resurrected not the 50th, the 50th day was Pentecost, the day our Father poured out from heaven HIS Spirit upon the 120 disciples.

    And yes the SABBATH is GOD’s HOLY DAY of REST and is to be kept,

    I began keeping God’s Sabbath in 1969 and the 7 Holy Feasts as well.

    • “I began keeping God’s Sabbath in 1969″ No You didn’t,you are keeping mans Sabbath on the 7th day of the week instead of the 7th.15th,22nd,29th day of the month ! The Bible links new moon observance with seventh day sabbath observance in agrarian communities. New moons are sabbaths (rest days) and work should
      cease, as in any seventh day sabbath. Amos 8:5,

      • Truthy1

        1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

        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.

        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 set aside every 7th Day. Sanctified it and blessed it, as a day of rest for man.
        The 7th Day is the reminder of just WHO is the Creator.

        Forget the number of months in a year or names of days, or how many days are in a month or lost years etc. from that first Sabbath count 6 days and the next day is the Sabbath. Men can change the calendars but counting 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 they can not change.

        Resting on the Sabbath is the 4th Commandment, if mankind is allowed by God to “lose” tract of the 7th Day then God can not hold us accountable — that can never happen!

        If the Sabbath is not the end of a 7 day week then why is Europe and the Catholic church bothering to change the calendar and end the week on Sunday?

        Does the prophecy about “change times” come to mind?

        Truthy1 –”the christian world”???? just because someone claims to be “christian” does not make them a Christian only God the Father can call a person into the Body of Christ.

        And which one of the 4000 flavors of so called christianity is THE right one?? if you say ALL then God is the author of confusion as none agree on doctrine and some times war one against the other.

        • Thanks for defending and promoting the Sabbath

          • Troothytits

            The first day o f the month is New Moon Day.

            Then the seven day week begins, and the 8th day of the month is the Sabbath

            The 15th day (the next Sabbath) is the full moon.

            The 22nd is another Sabbath.

            The last Sabbath of the month is on the 29th.

            The next month begins with the next new moon, and the count of days begins again.

            =================

            The Julian Calendar

            The modern calendar began in 46/45 BC, when Julius Caesar, in consultation with the astronomer Sosigenes of Alexandria, developed the Julian Calendar of 365.25 days. The big innovation was to separate the week from the lunar cycle and to make it a continuous cycle. It used an eight-day market week, with the days simply named “A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H”. Certain types of events were allowed on certain days, called fasti.

            By the time of the First Century AD, the seven-day week named after “gods” and “goddesses” of the solar-system was being used in Rome, and was starting to replace the eight-day week.

            But the 7-day solar system week was:

            1. Saturn’s day (obvious in English)

            2. Sun’s day (obvious in English)

            3. Moon’s day (obvious in English)

            4. Mars’ day  (Spanish: Martes, French: Mardi)

            5. Mercury’s day  (Spanish: Miércoles, French: Mercredi)

            6. Jupiter’s day  (Spanish: Jueves, French: Jeudi)

            7. Venus’ day  (Spanish: Viernes, French: Vendredi)

            So Saturn’s day was the first day of the week. However, the Jews and Christians were not using that calendar until the time of Constantine.

        • But … Christians DO rest (get drunk in Europe) on Saturday. They worship God (Oh GODDDD!) on Sunday (unless paralytically hungover obviously).

          The usual working week is Monday to Friday.

          You will have noticed, of course, that the guy worshiping Jesus as a human is who you are agreeing with.

  • Silly Christians !! You are propagating the deception with your false beliefs ! The Sabbath is determined by sighting the moon. Not the calendar which is a doctrine of man ! !http://www.viewzone.com/calendarx.html Jesus was not resurrected on Sunday. https://rcg.org/books/crwnos.html Christians observe Pagan holidays instead of the feasts of the Scriptures. http://www.nazarite.net/evil-holidays.html The mark of the Beast is/will be Sunday worship. The Papacy claims that it changed the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday and that Sunday or Sunday-keeping is its mark of authority and power. God’s mark or sign of power, is Sabbath and Sabbath-keeping and the beast’s sign or mark of power, is Sunday and Sunday-keeping.

    8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

      “The Sabbath is determined by sighting the moon.”

      No it is not. And there is nothing found in Scripture which says otherwise. Lunar sabbath theory, in any of its iterations, is untenable.

      Sabbath observance has nothing to do with the phases of the moon.

      • Pre-history is usually untenable.

      • You seem reluctant to EXPOUND on why you think you know it has nothing to do with the phases of the moon. One would think that would be KIND OF IMPORTANT in a tenably really real agricultural society.

        I admit I have almost zero interest in what day people think the sabbath is on (more interest than what I have in Torah code etc but that’s not really saying much).

        • …All biblical prophecies that deal with time spans, that have to do with Satan are counted in months…All the prophecies that deal with Christ are counted in days. The moon is counted as a dark sign.

          So why on earth would I bother expounding anything to you?

          Should Mr. Truthy ask me for an explanation along those lines, I will of course oblige.

          However, if you’re interested you may find the answer in the flood narrative of Genesis. Based on this evidence alone calculations, we can determine unequivocally the duration of biblical months. And based on this evidence alone, we can rule out ANY form of either lunar-based Sabbath or lunar-based calendar. But, as it happens, there is a significantly greater volume of evidence found throughout Scripture which roundly eliminates any claim to any legitimate lunar calendar or Sabbath.

  • I wouldn’t be surprised if most or all of the individuals who reply to my essays are senior citizens (and it is always the same individuals). They are very opinionated in these twilight years. They seem to not have jobs, so they have all the time in the world to pretty much post “Only” negative comments (and never anything positive). They apparently have never written any essays for others to read, and they only have time to criticize others.

    Since God has never established a Christian denomination (Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, Mormon etc.) they still feel they need to verbally harass anyone who doesn’t agree with their Christian dogma.

    I am curious what are the names of their organized denominational churches that THEY say represents a righteous true church denomination?

    They can’t reveal what church’s they go to, because they want to promote their “Traditions of men” IN SECRET, and hide revealing the source of their beliefs. For all their judgmental behaviors or attitudes revealing their carnal mental departure from what a normal, loving, and caring human being would look like from God’s point of view.
