Is The Sabbath Saturday Or Sunday?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

This has been a topic debated for at least the last 1600 years; and more so now that sectors such as the Seventh Day Adventist have come on the scene. I like to share knowledge and teach on subjects that affect salvation and the Sabbath Day is certainly a subject that salvation can be given or taken on. Why is this a topic of discussion in the first place? It is common knowledge that God worked six days and rested on the Sabbath and thus sanctified the Sabbath; the seventh day of the week (Genesis 2 v1-3). The reason why it is a topic of debate is because of two people; Paul the Apostle and Constantine the Emperor of Rome. Also because of a misunderstanding of the scripture as pertaining to when Jesus Christ rose from the grave.

It is universal knowledge the Sabbath day is the 7th day of the week; God said in His commandments, which is His covenant, that six days man is to labor, but on 7th day he is to rest for God rested on the Sabbath from all His work (Exodus 20 v8-11). So what the average Christian should do is go to their calendar or daily planner and check which day is the seventh day of the week on the calendar. That should be the Sabbath, but it’s not that simple is it? That was for the children of Israel. I would not say that so quickly because the Bible states one law for all (Exodus 12 v49). Everything God gave the children of Israel; they were and are to give to the children of Adam (all mankind).

Then there is the argument that Jesus rose on the 1st day of the week (acknowledging that Sunday is the first day of the week); therefore the Sabbath was changed from the seventh day to the first day. Well that statement is erroneous because Jesus rose on the 7th day of the week. He actually had no choice but to rise up on the seventh day of the week.

One thing, God has given man 7 days; after the seventh day man will not be man anymore but will be spirit like God (who is the Father of Spirits). Second thing, the seventh day represents the thousand years of peace Jesus will bring to the earth. A day to God is a thousand years (2nd Peter 3 v8); and for one thousand years, or one day the Sabbath Day, God will bring peace to the earth before the final judgment (Revelation 20 v4-5).

It is written that man would one day finally think he has the authority to change God’s time and God’s laws (Daniel 7 v25) and this day has come. God’s law or commandment stated the Sabbath Day is the seventh day of the week; so where did the change come from? Emperor Constantine had the Sabbath day changed from the seventh day of the week to the first day of the week. His smoke screen to get it past people was he converted to Christianity and in order to have more people convert he would change the day of require worship to allow more people in.

Pagan worshipers had for years worshiped the sun; so to keep them worshiping their sun; he changed the day from the 7th day to the 1st day of the week. Everyone is happy right? Not God, He is in Heaven laughing at the foolishness of man and will speak to man in wrath if he does not stop the disobedience (Psalm 2).

The Sabbath day is a sign between God and His people; so is the Sabbath Saturday or Sunday (Exodus 31 v17)? You have to make the decision if Jesus is your God because it is He that is Lord of the Sabbath (Mark 2 v28). The Sabbath Day is still the 7th day of the week, which is Saturday on calendars around the world. Grace and peace be upon you and your household in Jesus name… Amen.

Hello I am an adventist,I think you did a great job grasping the idea that saturday is the sabbath.I wish the whole world could get that idea but I don't see that happening, because most people don't want to know the Bible truths . Keep studying the bible all the truths are in there. Thank you Donna Mae

Very good points all around Koko! It never ceases to amaze me how the world has "wondered after the beast" and follows the false Sabbath that the Devil has persuaded man to establish. The Devil is laughing hard at how he has convinced the world that it is to commemorate the rising from the dead of the Son of God whom he killed. What a ruse he has pulled off, and there will come a day when this issue will be the very center of the battle between the "so called followers of God" and the true followers of God who love Him and "keep His Commandments"! (Not just 9 of them, but all 10) Great Job, my Brother in Christ Jesus!
