Sabbath Day (Gen 2: 1- 3 & Ex.20: 8 -11) By r. a. Saturday, Aug.08, 2020
In Messiah’s name: “for all thy commandments are righteousness…and thy law is my delight”.(Ps.119: 172, 174)
This past Thursday (Aug06/20) I received, in the mail, a two page leaflet from a local, nameless evangelical distributor. It contained mostly New Testament scripts supposedly showing “The Things God Wants You To Know” and how to get “saved”. The scripts presented in that tract were the ones based upon the man-made theology of Sunday-keeping Christians.
Not one script, of the many presented, made any reference to keeping the commandments or Holy Days of the Creator-God. Some texts were taken out of context which is a method, by some leaders, to support a false doctrine or narrative.
Be that as it may, but I gotta state this and it may offend some and/or inform some. Sunday-keeping Christians are a deceived lot! There, I said it, and I’m going to state it again. Sunday-keeping Christians are a deceived lot! They do not serve the Creator-God. Rather, they honor and serve the “god of this world” (2 Cor.4: 4).
When the “blind lead the blind” (Matt.15: 14) the fruit is error, deception and the ditch.
Sunday, the first day of the week, is NOT a day set apart (sanctified, made holy) by the Creator-God, the great I AM.
It is the seventh day of the week as outlined in the 4th commandment of the 10, which is THE DAY of rest and worship.
Those who claim they “rest in jesus” are self-deceived and/or liars. (See Heb.4: 8 -9) So-called “resting in jesus” is not a Sabbath rest — period!
The Sabbath day ordained by the Creator-God, the great I AM, means one is to cease and desist from work including buying and selling.
There is a death penalty for profaning, dishonoring and violating the Sabbath. By keeping Sunday, the Christian is committing Idolatry – the worship of humans and their traditions.
Hear, understand and take to heart the Creator-God’s word. (Ex.31: 14 – 18)
14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defiles it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord: whosoever does any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
Notice in verse 17 above. The Sabbath is an outward sign which identifies the true Israel of God and those gentiles who are grafted in.
So the question: Are Christians saved by transgressing,, defiling and profaning the 4th Command, the Sabbath day?
Answer: No, Christians are not saved for transgressing, on a weekly basis, the 4th commandment. They continue to live in sin which is a violation of the Creator’s commandments. If they don’t repent, they will face a second death. (Rev.21: 8)
All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth – God’s Word (Jn.10: 10 & Ps. 119: 142
