Ever wonder if the Sabbath is really suppose to be Sunday for Christians? When people argue and state that it is I tend to hear that it’s because Jesus was resurrected on Sunday. But if you think about it, no where in the New Testament does it say that because of this did God’s Day Of Rest change. I’ve read the Bible several times and have yet to find a verse to support the day change.
Over the past couple years I have begun to learn that if Christians want to truly follow God’s 10 Commandments then we need to go back to worshipping and resting on Saturdays.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
Exodus 20:8-11 NKJV
Also when you read the Gospels you read that Jesus celebrated all the Jewish celebrations and He even said:
Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.
Matthew 5:17-18 NKJV
I will go more into Jesus and the Jewish Celebrations in another entry, but I don’t believe that Jesus intended for the Sabbath day to change after He rose from the grave. I have learned much more over the past few years about Jesus and Jewish Traditions, but this article from Sabbath truth.com is a very well done summary of the Sabbath parts I’ve learned.
