Investigating The Sabbath

  • Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
  • Exo 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
  • Exo 20:10 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:
  • Exo 20:11 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.

What Does The Evidence Reveal?


All your life you've woken up early Sunday morning and headed off to church and never questioned "Why?" All I'm asking, is that you ask questions to:1. God (that's who showed me, when I was 11)2. Parents (or whoever took you to church at a young age if they are around)3. Your Clergy: "Pastor (or their appropriate title), why do we observe Sunday, since there is no Biblical injunction for it?"----------------------------------------------------------------

BTW if you are a Sabbath-keeper, whose doing Sabbath "because that's how I grew up" you need to know why you do (by/for works sake) Sabbath-keeping is as criminal as observing a day that Satan brought in to counterfeit God's TRUE Holy Day (Isaiah 58:13; Rev.1:10).


Let me just debunk a myth and address the 1600lb elephant/gorilla in the room and I'll send you to your labs to investigate these things. Oh, PLEASE be a faithful Berean and go back and see if these things are so. Its 2024 people, the technology is literally at your fingertips...take advantage of it and study the history of how Sunday came into the Christian church.... I PROMISE YOU THAT YOU WON'T FIND one THUS SAITH THE LORD to do so. But God commands Sabbath observance (Isa, 58:12-14; 56:1-8).

THE SABBATH WAS OLD COVENANT AND IS ABOLISHED: Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Col 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; QUESTION: Does The 10 Commandments (Exodus 20:8-11; Deuteronomy 5: 12-15), lay out The Seventh-day Sabbath as a shadow of things to come, or a remembrance of things in the past (The Creation (Rev.14:6-7), and their deliverance from Egypt (you do realize that the Jewish leaders told Jesus they were NEVER in bondage, they forgot, because they were dishonoring the Sabbath and The Lord Of The Sabbath (John 8:33; Mark 2:27-28; Luke 6:11)All the things mentioned in Colossians were instituted to point people to the sacrifice of Jesus (the feast days, which included annual sabbath days..... 

NOTICE that God makes a distinction between these "ceremonial" sabbath days and His Holy day: See Leviticus 23...notice: Lev 23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. Compare: Lev 23:26 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Lev 23:27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. Lev 23:28 And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. Lev 23:29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. Lev 23:30 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. Lev 23:31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. Lev 23:32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath. <--- notice the language difference? "Sabbath of THE LORD" vs "your sabbath"

Lastly: The covenants are NOT dispensations of time, but conditions of the heart (See Galatians 4:21-31). A covenant is God's promise to the people. The old covenant (as embodied by Hagar in Galatians four) represents works of the flesh to fulfill God's promise). 

God's dealing with people is ALWAYS NEW COVENANT (He promises, He fulfills). Abraham operated under BOTH covenants. As we see again in Galatians, Hagar and "her son" had to be cast out. So too, old covenant thinking has to be cast out. God didn't bind the people to their old-covenant mentality, they did. just acknowledge it by ratifying it in blood. But here in "His own words" is what He hoped for the people: Deu 5:27 Go thou near, and hear all that the LORD our God shall say: and speak thou unto us all that the LORD our God shall speak unto thee; and we will hear it, and do it. Deu 5:28 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken. Deu 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Eze 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. Eze 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. Eze 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. <--- This is The New Covenant experience, it's clear: God's covenant is His promises "I will"....therefore old-covenant is the promises of the people to do and be obedient. 

To say that this is the system that God set up, then abolished, requires much questioning, but one last verse and I move on: Heb 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. Heb 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. Heb 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Heb 8:9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: Heb 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. Heb 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away. <--note that the New covenant is "better promises" Did God make defaulted promises before? NO, the people did. They didn't know their heart (Deut. 5:29). The 7th day Sabbath is part of God's New covenant promise (See Isa.56:1-8).-------------------------------If you have questions or need further clarification, please feel free to Contact Me

another argument: JESUS HEALED ON THE SABBATH (meaning that He broke the Sabbath observance...what does Jesus say though?: See Luke 6:6-10)

This Promise Is For You: Isa 58:13 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: Isa 58:14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. (Jacob is your father too, dear friend, you reading are children of Abraham...and therefore beneficiaries of his blessings)
