HONOR THE SABBATH DAY
TO KEEP IT HOLY !
NOT THE POPES DAY,
( EXODUS CH.20 V.8-11 )
In the year 365 , the Catholic synod of Leodicea ruled against Christians that chose to worship on the Sabbath . Many thousands were killed for this Christian tradition all through the so called "dark ages" or the ages of Catholic control over Godís people . Few people believe in the true Sabbath as opposed to the Popeís day invented for sun worshipers on Sunday .
Years ago I was witnessing in Spanish , to a Spanish speaking Christian about Godís plan shown in Bible prophecy . Suddenly Godís power came down upon me in a very powerful way . When this happened, God revealed to me "by His Spirit" that God had never changed the day to Sunday from Godís day of Saturday or as the Bible calls it the Sabbath .
So I went home and tried to find this change of days in the Bible and could not find any change . The only thing I could find was that Paul the Apostle said to collect Godís money , the offering and on the first day of the week or Sunday ( I Corinthians Ch.16 V.2 ).
I personally believe the early Church thought of the Sabbath as such a holy day they would not even collect money on this day . My earthly father told me that when he pastured a free (Methodist) church , that they would not even cook a meal on their holy day . The only problem was , they thought Sunday was Godís holy day , due to the Devilís influence over christians , and the christian church Ė thatís all that have believed in the Lord Jesus ( John Ch.3 V.16 ).
Some people think it should be Sunday (Godís most holy day) because of the tomb being empty on Sunday morning , but that is because he died on Wednesday and was dead three days and three nights . I believe as Jesus said , he would be in the heart of the earth "three days and three nights" (Mathew Ch.12 V.40) , even as Jonah was in the belly of a great fish praying to God for deliverance for three days and three nights to get delivered from himself (Jonah Ch.2 V.2).
Thatís why Jesus arose from the dead sometime Saturday evening after the Sabbath had ended . So it would be exactly three days as Jesus had prophecied . So Jesus didnít rise from the dead on Sunday but Paul the Apostle said let everyone be persuaded in their own mind as to the right day .
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND BE WITH YOU .
My prayer is that God will direct you and be with you in these eventful days leading up to the coming of Christ and the establishing of his kingdom rule for 1,000 years on Earth .
