JESUS LORD OF THE SABBATH
 WELCOMES YOU

 JESUS and His angels returning to ruleWhy you need to be keeping GOD's Sabbath day holy and why you ought to join us!!!
The Lord JESUS loves you and me

     Jesus in the New Testament proclaims Himself as the Lord of the Sabbath day. Therefore He cannot be the Sabbath day Himself. Why?

The sanctity of the Sabbath day is a memorial of freeing us from the bondage and slavery of sin.        Jesus was not a legalist for keeping His own Lord's day holy. He was not in bondage, but kept the Sabbath of the fourth commandment which is called the law of liberty[James 2:10-12] even in His deathbed holy.

That is why the churches of Christendom do not speak of overcoming sin & following Jesus Christ in the narrow way.

When you ask, which is the Lord's day? Then you must also specify which day of the Lord you want, the false counterfeit day or the real and genuine biblical Lord's day? Moslems use to keep the Sabbath on Saturday, but then changed to Friday. Christians use to keep the Sabbath, but then changed to Sunday.

The Sunday-Sabbath makes you to transgress the Ten Commandments and is a counterfeit Sabbath which bonds you to a world that is in enmity with God and therefore makes us a candidate to receive the mark of the beast 666. We cannot keep Sunday holy as the Sabbath of Christ and the 10 Commandments because God did not bless that day nor sanctified that false sabbath of heathen sun worship still bearing that same title today. [
SUN-DAY].

Because He made heaven and earth and is therefore our Creator GOD and re-creates us into "Born again" Christians offering us a new heart and the Holy Spirit: "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 KJV].

"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].

God's will in the New Testament according to Revelation 14:7 is to worship Him who made heaven, earth, the sea and the fountains of water. Only the New Testament reveals to us that Jesus Christ is worthy of our worship because He made those things for us, namely heaven and earth and the springs of water. It is worded so in the Sabbath commandment itself [Exodus 20:8-12].

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.

Jesus is the "Great Iam" the self-existing one [compare John 5:18; 8:58; Exodus 3:13-15; 1.Corinthians 10:4].

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]. All Ten will be there James 2:10-12.

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 strictly.

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 un
til Saturday night (Luke 23:54-56) when His closest followers waited with the embalming of His body.

"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; Matthew 12:8].


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 forgiven.

Sabbath keeping does not save us, but we cannot be saved without it by continuing breaking it and sinning without repentance.

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.

The very name "Sabbath" is God's mark or sign of authority. The Hebrew word is "Shabbath". Sha means eternal One. Ab is the root word for Abba and means Father. Bath or Beth means house of or sign of = Sign of the eternal Father.

Jesus did not break His own Sabbath as opponents usually claim. The Jews under Hellenistic occupation and therefore under the influence of evil angels, had made the Sabbath day so stringent by adding some 40 extra rules, so that no one was able or inclined to keep the day holy. Jesus came to remove and undo these. He performed most of His miracles on the Sabbath day to appease and challenge the Pharisees. Therefore Jesus ask confidently 'Who can accuse me of sin? Jesus did not break the Sabbath as originally given by Him at Creation. So only the Jews claimed He had broken His own Sabbath when He did not or else He would have sinned and could not be our Savior from sin.

The FAQ [frequently Ask Question] Page answers objections.

"Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all"----James 2:10
We do not keep the whole law of Moses or the sacrificial ceremonial law. James repeats Jesus [Matthew 5:17-19] here and refers to the law of morals which define sin, namely, the 10 Commandment law.
Jesus says that His Seventh-day Sabbath [Saturday] is 'for' us [Mark 2:27], while Colossians 2:14-16 says that the Sabbath of ordinances are 'against' us.

"If a person works on the seventh day of the week, he has broken the fourth commandment outright, has he not?"

"I suppose he has, if you believe the Bible,".

"But the commandment says, 'The seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God.' It is His; it is not ours, or any man's. Now, when a person takes for himself what belongs to another, what is he doing?" "We call that stealing."

"Yes, sir. Then has he not, in breaking the fourth broken the eighth also?"

"But, "Before he steals, he always has an intense and illegitimate desire for the thing he steals, and in such desire, what commandment has he broken?"

"It may be that you would call it coveting."

"Yes. Then he has broken the tenth commandment also, three of them broken in transgressing, 'just one'."

"When a man puts himself so entirely first, so fully before God, as to covet what is His and to steal from Him, what other commandment does he break?"

The first one?"

"Yes, 'Thou shalt have no other gods before Me'."

"But man is not a god; why suggesting so absurd a thing?"

"Well, he has put himself first; he has considered his own interests more to him than his relations to his Maker. Not only can a man become a god to himself, but I read of some who think so much of their appetites that it is said of them 'Whose god is their belly' [Philippians 3:19]; just as we say of others, their god is the dollar."

"There is another commandment so closely related to this that I must ask right here: If a man thinks so much of himself and his own desires as thus to place himself before God, does he not make an idol of himself? What commandment forbids idolatry?"

"I don't know, unless you mean the second, the one against making images. But I do not see how he has broken that one; he has not made a graven image of anything."

"This is true that he has not made a literal, tangible image; but all image worship is nothing more nor less than a certain conception of the worshiper's own mind and heart embodied in a visible image and worshiped--really worshipping himself, or making a god or an idol of himself. What difference does it make whether one worships one's self in a stone image or in one's own person? It is idolatry just the same. Two more commandments broken in breaking the Sabbath commandment--five already!

"But this is not all. God's name is in the fourth commandment. It tells us that He is Maker of heaven and earth, the great Creator. That distinguishes Him from all other gods. It is the only place in the Decalogue where He has affixed His name to the wonderful document--at the close of the first table of the law, those commandments which tell of our relations and obligations to Him. Now, when we treat His precepts in such a reckless, vain way, are we not using His name in vain? What does the third commandment say?"

"Oh, well, that commandment pretends, or tries to prohibit swearing; but what you say is not swearing, or profanity--if there is such a thing."

"But this commandment forbids more than outspoken oaths. Any vain use of God's name--whatever would tend to break down our own or another's sense of reverence for God and cause us to forget Him and His word--is also forbidden.

"That is not all. Many persons say: 'It makes no difference which day you keep, so long as you keep it holy.' But God says in the commandment where His name is signed, that the seventh day is His Sabbath; in it we are not to do any work. Then is it true that it makes no difference which day you keep? Is it not a vain use of that commandment, and of God's name in it, to take such a position--really a violation of the third commandment?"

"Again, if the individual has not told the truth about it, what other commandment has he transgressed?"

" That commandment says: 'Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.' What has that to do with the being you call God?"

"It is true that that is the letter of the law, but you must remember that we read that God's law is spiritual. To lie is to lie, whether to one or to another; and it is far worse to lie to God than to man.

"Now, in regard to this saying that it makes no difference which day one keeps, I want to suggest one or two more thoughts on that point: If we want to keep God's rest day, we must rest on the same day He did; and He rested on the seventh day of the week only. His resting and blessing made that day the Sabbath, for 'Sabbath' you know, means 'rest'. Man's rest counts for nothing in making a day holy. If all the people on earth should rest on another day, that would not make that other day God's rest day. Man's rest day could never be God's rest day unless he should rest on the same day that God rested on at creation.

"In Genesis 2:3 I read: 'God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in  it He had rested from all His work which God created and made.' He put His presence into that day in a separate sense from that in which it is in other days, even as that sacred presence is in some individuals and not in others. His presence in the burning bush made the ground about it holy, as it did also the place where the Captain of the Lord's host met with Joshua. Exodus 3:5; Joshua 5:13-15. Although we may not outwardly discern any difference between the seventh and the first day of the week, the fact that God's presence is in the seventh day makes all the difference in the world. His presence may and should be with us and in us every day of the week; but, quite aside and separate from this, it is in His holy day. When that sacred presence in the day and in the individual meets, there is in that heart a sense of holiness and sacredness that is felt and known only by those who know this truth and have this experience.

"I wish that all might see that there was but one day that God blessed and sanctified, on which He rested, and into which He put His presence, and that therefore it does make a difference which day we keep, and that it is not the truth to say that it makes no difference which day we observe."

"Let us go another step. God claims, by virtue of creation and redemption, that He is our Father. In thus openly dishonouring Him, what other commandment has been broken?"

" God calls us His children. He made us. Especially does He promise those who will separate from sin and turn to Him for forgiveness and salvation: 'I will receive you, and will be a father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters.' 2 Corinthians 6:17, 18. Will He allow us to show Him less respect and honour than we show our earthly parents? If the letter of the law is broken by a child's disobedience to its earthly parent, is not the spirit of it broken by our disobedience to our heavenly Parent? This makes eight commandments broken in transgressing 'only one'."

"We have not finished; there are two other commandments. But I wish first to refer to three or four other texts. 'The wages of sin is death.' Romans 6:23. 'The soul that sinneth, it shall die.' Ezekiel 18:4. 'Sin is the transgression of the law.' 1 John 3:4. this law of Ten Commandment is the law that points out sin, and without which we could not tell what sin is. Romans 7:7. In this wholesale transgression of God's law, what is the sinner bringing upon himself? What is he doing to himself?"

"Does that mean that he taking his own life?"

"I do. Is not his course leading him to certain death--unless he repents and turns to God and secures the forgiveness of his sins? Of what commandment is killing, even if it be self destruction, a violation?"

 We read in Isaiah 54:5: 'Thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is His name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; the God of the whole earth shall He be called.' He is the husband of all whom He has made. Israel backslid from God, uniting with the nations around her. Of her God said: 'Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with Me, O house of Israel. Saith the Lord;' also that she had 'played the harlot,' 'and committed adultery.' Jeremiah 3:20, 8, 9. In James 4:4 I read: 'Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?' This spiritual adultery is forbidden by the seventh commandment as truly as it is the carnal. As a spiritual law it detects the sin in the thoughts and in the heart. Matthew 5:27, 28. Therefore, in transgression of the fourth commandment, the seventh is broken as well as are the other nine."


"I wish to ask a few questions now. First, to sum up all in a nutshell, I want to ask a question on each of the commandments; then on the law as a whole.

"How can a man take God's Sabbath [fourth commandment] for his own selfish use, ruthlessly breaking it, without stealing also [eighth commandment]? How can he steal a thing without first coveting it {tenth commandment]? How can he thus put himself first, even before God, without having another god before the Lord [first commandment?] How can he make such an idol of himself without breaking the second commandment? How can he so heedlessly and vainly use the commandment in which God has placed His name, without taking the name in vain [third commandment?] How can he show such disrespect to his heavenly Father without breaking the fifth commandment? How can he commit such sins, when God has said that the sure result of sin is death, without being guilty of knowingly and deliberately taking his own life [sixth commandment? How can a person do all this, and by his actions and his words of self-justification say that his course is all right, and be telling the truth [ninth commandment]? And lastly: How can he go so completely away from his spiritual spouse as to join the sinful world, living with the world as a beloved, congenial companion, without being guilty of adultery [seventh commandment], as God said ancient Israel was in doing the same thing?

"Can you now think that the fourth commandment is of no consequence, and that it makes no difference which day we keep? Really, is it not the very heart of the law of God, the greatest of all the commandments--if it is possible that one can be greater than another? Does it not matter if we do keep another day, concerning the observance of which God has said nothing in His word, when the discarding and disregarding of His day involves the violation of every commandment in the Decalogue? Does not the substitution of another day in its place, without His direction so to do, add greatly to the guilt of the transgressor? How would you like it if someone should steal your fine horse boldly before you very eyes and give you instead an old broken-down steed and say it was fully as good?"

Without realizing what he had done, the infidel has stood, moved his chair nervously, and had seated himself again where the light from the window, falling on his face, revealed evidence of deep conviction.

"Now for some questions on the law as a whole: In all candor," I asked, "did you ever see any other law so brief, yet so comprehensive? While each section, or commandment, is so distinct and complete in itself, the whole is so entirely one, each so related to every other, that it is impossible to transgress one without transgressing every other one in the same act. I would like to ask you: Where did Moses get that law? Do you think any human mind devised it?"

"This is not my wisdom,". "The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.' Psalm 10:7, 8.

What does it mean to keep the Sabbath day holy? Since there is no biblical authority for the change of the Sabbath, we quote the Lord's original intent: "If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath. From doing your pleasure on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, The holy day of the Lord honorable, And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, Nor finding your own pleasure, Nor speaking your own words, Then you shall delight yourself in the Lord....the mouth of the Lord has spoken it."--Isaiah 58:13,14.

The Lord is saying here, if you stop trampling on My Sabbath day and pursuing your own interests and start honoring Me by honoring My Sabbath day, then you will find the joy that comes from serving the Lord.
