you need to be keeping GOD's Sabbath day holy and why you ought to join
The Lord JESUS loves you and me
Jesus in the New Testament
proclaims Himself as the Lord of the Sabbath day. Why?
Because He made heaven and earth
and is therefore our Creator GOD and re-creates us into "Born again"
Christians: "In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with GOD, and the Word was GOD. The same was in the
beginning with GOD. All things were made by Him: and without Him was not
anything made that was made." [John 1:1-3 KJV].
"Thus the heaven and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
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." [Genesis 2:1-3
"Remember the seventh day to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour,
and do all thy work. But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy
GOD: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy
daughter, thy man servant, nor thy maid servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy
stranger that is within thy gates.
For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in
them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the
Sabbath day, and hallowed it." [Exodus 20:8-12 KJV].
Note: The Sabbath [Saturday] is the fourth of the Ten
Commandments in the Bible. In Catechisms, however, you'll find it as the
third command. This is because papal Rome removed the second which for
bids idolatry so they could import images of humans and adore, kiss and
worship them instead of GOD.
All of the Ten Commandments point out sin to us [see Romans 7:7-14;
1.Jn.3:4 KJV]. On judgment day the ark of the new covenant containing
the Ten Commandments will be visibly defending us for having obeyed
them, or declaring us guilty of death. [Revelation 11:18,19].
Papal Rome makes the following boast:"Question: Why do we observe Sunday
instead of Saturday? Answer: We observe Sunday instead of Saturday,
because the Catholic Church, in the council of Laodecea (A.D.336),
transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.---Peter Geiermann,
The Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, sec.ed. ,1910, p.50
Note, solemnity alright, but none of Sunday is being actually
observed as a Sabbath day even though some of the Reformers did so
The importance of the true LORD's day (Revelation 1:10) can be seen that
our Lord JESUS even kept His day holy in His deathbed from Friday sunset
to til Saturday night (Luke
23:54-56) when His closest followers waited with the embalming of His
"And they rested according to the Sabbath commandment." [verse 56
last part]. His closest followers knew nothing of a supposedly Sunday
sacredness. Forty years after the resurrection, John was in the Holy
Spirit on the Lord's day [Rev.1:10] of which JESUS is Lord [Mark 2:28;
Neither did the New Testament
church long after the resurrection when the Gentiles came to Paul asking
him to come and preach to them. Not the next day, but the next Sabbath
day [Acts 13:42,44].
Another most important fact for Saturday Sabbath keeping as mentioned
above, the Ten Commandments including the Seventh day Sabbath is up in
heaven under the throne of GOD called the mercy seat where our sins are
Sabbath keeping does not save us,
but we cannot be saved without it by continuing breaking it and sinning
Under the new covenant, the law of
the Decalogue is being written into our hearts and mind by GOD Himself.
[See Hebrews 8]
With the heart we love and with
the mind we can see why GOD is asking obedience from us.
