Exposing Lies


 QUESTION: "I don’t feel it matters what day you have your church services. There have been so many calendars, who’s to say what day is truly the Sabbath? We should worship God every day not just one." 

 Regarding the Sabbath, the only calendar that matters is the Hebrew Calendar which God gave to Israel. This Calendar is almost 5800 years old and is still in use. It has been updated from time to time to ensure the seasons fall correctly, ( a 13th month is added 7 times in each 19 year cycle) but the 1st day of each month is always the slight crescent, the 15th is always a full moon, and the weekdays have never been altered. The Hebrew Calendar of today is the same unchanged one that Jesus and the Apostles used. God is not a God of confusion, and if He commanded people to keep the Seventh day holy He would never allow its identity to be hidden. The Bible says that God never asks us to do something we cannot do. The Calendar was one of the sacred "oracles" which God has entrusted to the Jews. (Romans 3:2) Jesus kept the Sabbath. (Luke 4:16) One need not attempt to return to creation week to find the correct day, Jesus declared Himself "Lord of the Sabbath" (Matt.12:8) -He knew which day the Sabbath was and it is the same day the Jews keep today - Saturday.

    Because a person keeps the Sabbath day doesn’t mean he does not worship God everyday. That line of reasoning would mean people who attend Sunday services only worship day one day a week too. But the Bible clearly says that God sanctified ("set apart") and made holy the Seventh day. God made that distinction not me, I simply obey His Commandment to honor it and keep it holy. God also Commanded that His servants work the first six days of the week. Jesus warned that those who attempt to worship God according to the traditions of man rather than the Commandments of God worship in vain. (Matt. 15:9) Jesus also said that God must be worshiped in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24) It is on the Sabbath alone that God commands a holy assembly. Would it be wrong to have assemblies on other days? No, but it is wrong to exclude the Sabbath in the process. You may have your own philosophy Jared regarding whether the Sabbath matters or not, but God has not asked for it, nor will He be impressed with it. God is looking for those who will obey Him.

Jesus made a distinction between the weekdays when he instructed end-time believers to pray that their flight from Anti-Christ would not fall in the winter or on the SABBATH. (Matt.24:20) Obviously, any other day would be fine because they are not holy. Did you know that all mankind will keep the Sabbath when Jesus establishes the Kingdom of God upon the earth? "And it shall be from new moon to new moon and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all mankind will come to bow down before Me, says the Lord." (Isaiah 66:23)
