I just wanna say that "follow what is in the bible." The standard is the bible.
Today we will study through the Bible why we should keep the Sabbath day.
Rev 22:18 If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
We should celebrate the Sabbath day because it is testified in the Bible. We will never go to the kingdom of heaven when we add or take away anything from the Bible.
What day of the week must we keep to receive blessing and holiness from God?
Ge 2:3 God blessed the seventh day and made it holy.
God blessed the seventh day in the Creation. Later in the time of Moses He commanded His people to "remember" the Sabbath by keeping it holy.
Ex 20:8-10 Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy … the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God.
We can easily understand Saturday is the Sabbath through a dictionary. It says Saturday is the seventh and the last day of the week. What about Sunday? It says Sunday is the first day of the week.
Do you know what 'weekend' means? It is the end of the week. What day of the week is at the very end? (Saturday) Therefore the Sabbath day is Saturday, not Sunday ("The Faith of Our Fathers," pp. 72-73).
Now let's find out why the Sabbath day is so important to us?
Ex 31:13 You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come.
Sabbath day is a sign between God and His people forever. Therefore, Jesus, our God, set us an example of keeping the Sabbath day that we must follow.
Lk 4:16 On the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom.
It was Jesus' custom to keep the Sabbath day. It was also the custom of the apostles.
Ac 17:2 As his custom was, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures.
Jesus' apostles kept the Sabbath as Jesus did. It must be our custom, too. We must not take it away from the Bible.
(custom: the way a person always behaves; a habit or practice)
Why, then, do you think Jesus and His apostles kept the Sabbath? It's because the Sabbath is God's truth that leads us to the kingdom of heaven. Let's find out.
Mt 7:21 Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
Who can enter the kingdom of heaven? (Only those who do the will of God) It is God's will for us to keep His words without adding or taking away from the Bible. We must keep the Sabbath day in the Bible. What will happen to the people who dare take away the Sabbath day and add Sunday to the Bible at the last day? They will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
We believe in God in order to go to the kingdom of heaven. Let's keep the Sabbath in the Bible and enter the kingdom of heaven. God bless you.
