The sabbath day is the seventh day of the week. I did not decide this, but our Father in Heaven did. No matter how long I live, I will still be embarrassed with myself that I agreed with man and allowed a person to tell me God changed the sabbath day.
It is the only day He actually named.
It is the only commandment that tells us to remember. Seems like God knew what man would do.
It is one of the few things that those that protested the Catholic Church and her teaching kept even though the Catholic Church acknowledges that the day was changed by her and NOT God.
Below are a few clip art images I have about the Sabbath. I am in no measure trying to upset anyone or make anyone think I know better. I am posting these because I believe that the Bible is a complete book that will guide us in Truth. Man on the other hand works hard to change the truth and one example is of the sabbath. It is crazy especially when you see the Ten Commandments all around and Protestant faiths defending the right for them to be everywhere, yet, these very same groups put Sunday up as the new day of rest. I confess I did so as well, until I tossed out my Bible with notes and bought a Strong's Concordance and studied for myself. When a word study is done about the Sabbath you will be amazed. I mean if Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath BUT Christian churches have taken the sabbath away and replaced it, then has Christ been replaced as well?
Now I realize we are to find our rest in the Lord, but the actual sabbath still exist and we are to work six days and rest on the sabbath, just as Jesus did. We are to walk as he walked
He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. 1 John 2:6
Jesus kept the sabbath. Not as the Jews kept it(such as the Pharisees and Sadducee's) but as our Father instructed us to keep it.
On to the images.
Now if you are Catholic, this may not concern you, but it should.
Continue on as to why it should concern you.
In the New Testament we learn that Paul kept the sabbath.
Malachi 3:6 reveals that God does not change.
The sabbath was changed by Constantine. It will only
take you a few clicks to research this for yourself.
Over the years Catholic leaders have shared the power and ability that
they have on how the sabbath was changed.
Tradition has been established and to suggest anything other to most
professing Christians always results in me being told that I am bordering on
or actually am a legalist.
I am going to say that I am a Bible believer. I am not Jewish yet I am grafted into Israel based on Romans 11, and of course Matthew 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
The Messiah came for the lost sheep of the house of Israel, and once we call upon his name we become his and belong to the house of Israel. We are not what I was taught as a new believer, grafted in to the body of believers. He tells us in Matthew 15:24 who we are, and because of the grafting explained in Romans 11 as in several other places are of the house of Israel.
This is a powerful amazing thing and I am thankful.
Now to those that are Catholics or any others that may disagree with me, please let me know using the Bible. Where are we told to disregard the sabbath for the first day? Where are we told in the Bible that some things can be changed by man and that will be okay as we can find a spiritual rest in our Saviour? I ask these things in sincerity as the Old Testament is filled with the Chosen people (the children of the 12 tribes and the stranger among them-you know Jacob's children oh and Jacob's name was changed to Israel), that disobeyed and were punished by God.
The Blood of the Lamb is not to allow us to sin.
The Blood of the Lamb is to cover us so we can tabernacle with Him in spite of our nature.
As a parent I expect my children to respect my rules and I certainly did not allow for them to break the rules because I was the adult. I punished the children so that they would understand and learn.
We are needing to get back in His word and study to show ourselves approved.
Just a thought to close the post.
Happy Sabbath to you all and may you rest and strengthen yourself for the following week.
