    Hi, Everyone! I hope you all are having a good week so far! Did you all have a good Easter? I did! Jesus is risen! Hallelujah!!!!

     Now, to today's post! Today I am going to talk about the Sabbath. We are going to look at some different Bible verses, and figure out which day is the true Sabbath! So, Let's get started!

  Let's start with Exodus 20: 8-11

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

     Which day does this scripture passage tell us is the Sabbath? The 7th day of the week.  Saturday. 

     When Jesus died on the cross, He died on Friday, and was buried that day. He rose on Sunday, the first day of the week. ( John 20.) So, He rested on Saturday, which is the seventh day! Jesus kept the true Sabbath, even in His death! 
      But, why do most Christians go to church on Sunday? Some people believe that the Sabbath was changed from Saturday to Sunday. But , the Bible tells us that God's Word is true, it is unchangeable! God would not declare one day to be His Sabbath, and then change it!

     Look at Hebrews 4: 8. " For if Jesus ad given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day."

          I want to keep Jesus' true Sabbath! What about you?


  1. Sorry this post's font varies! It kept changing! The first verse was copied and pasted from "Bible Gateway".

  2. I always enjoy reading your posts Sarah. It all has to do with the book of Acts and the beginning of the Christ Church and...with what calendar you follow since no actual, physical calender was printed as we have now. It was a way of putting everyone on the same "track" so to speak.
    Actually it would be Friday night at sunset to Saturday night at sunset by the Jewish calendar. I believe what is important is that we EACH and everyone set aside that one day of every seven for a day of reverence and rest spiritually as well as physically and devote that 24 hour period to worshiping Christ and restarting ourselves in a spiritual manner with full devotion to Him and absolutely nothing else distracting us.
    I wonder how most Christians call "Sunday" a day of rest, not because of the day of the calendar but the turmoil, you know? Waiting on that alarm to go off, the hustle and bustle of preparing, the confusion of parking, sitting and listening sometimes miserably (LOL), home again or grandmas house, cooking a large Sunday dinner, blah! blah! blah! it goes on and on - not an appropriate day of rest (worship) to me. But it is also important that we gather and commune. I guess maybe it comes down to where you feel Him the most and the deepest. For many that is Sunday morning Church.
    Love your post, Miawa

  3. Thanks for reminding me about Sabbath being from Fri. night to Saturday night. I totally forgot to put that in my post!
