To my Pentecostal, Catholic, Anglican, Methodist brothers and sisters. Have you ever search the Scripture to know what is TRUTH?
“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20
Moses also wrote:
“at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.” Deut 19:15
Jesus Christ repeated the same words:
“in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.” Matt 18:26
WHAT IS THE LORD’S DAY?
Apostle John said, “I was in the Spirit on the LORD’s DAY, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet” Rev 1:10
WHO ARE THE WITNESSES TO THESE FACT?
Witness 1: MARK
Mark said Jesus is the Lord of the sabbath (Seventh day) and not first day (sunday) or any other day.
“And he (Jesus) said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: 28 Therefore the Son of man (JESUS) is LORD also of the sabbath.” Mark 2:27, 28
Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath (Seventh day) and not the Lord of Sunday.
Witness 2: MATTHEW
Matthew also witness to what mark wrote that Jesus is the LORD of the sabbath day. Matthew said sabbath day, showing that the sabbath is a DAY that means one can’t decide to chose any other day apart from the DAY Jesus is LORD of.
“For the Son of man (JESUS) is LORD even of the SABBATH DAY.” Matthew 12:8
Witness 3: ISAIAH
Isaiah is another witness who identified the authority of God on the Sabbath by calling it “MY HOLY DAY.” No where in the Bible has GOD called the First day of the week (SUNDAY) my holy day.
“If thou turn away thy foot from the SABBATH, from doing thy pleasure on MY HOLY DAY; and call the sabbath a delight, the HOLY OF THE LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words” Isaiah 58:13
Witness 4: MOSES
The Sabbath is the seventh day, and the seventhday is Saturday and not Sunday. SUNDAY was never appointed as a holy day by God.
“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.” Gen 2:2, 3
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 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 manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 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 20:8-11
Witness 5. LUKE
Luke a gentile convert to christianity, wrote that the disciples of Jesus went back home to keep the sabbath according to the commandment given to them by God. They would rather obey God’s commandment than anoiting Christ’s body.
“And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on. 55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid. 56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.” Luke 23:54-56
I pray the Lord will teach us his word better.
