Happy Sabbath! / What day is the Sabbath?

    Hi , everyone! I hope all of you have had a wonderful week! Today, Saturday, is the day appointed by God to be our day of rest. We are to spend the 7th day of the week to in worship and praise of our creator, GOD! 
     Exodus 20:11 says : " For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth,the sea,  and all that is in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it." 

       It is important to keep the true Sabbath because..... Exodus 31:13 says : " Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you." 

      Sunday, the first day is also mentioned in the Bible . Matthew 28:1 says : " In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn towards the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene , and the other Mary to see the sepulchre ."   The dictionary definition of Sunday is as follows:  " the first day of the week, observed as the sabbath by most Christian sects." ( taken from Dictionary).

     Jesus even kept the Sabbath in His death. He died on Friday, rested on Saturday, and rose on Sunday. 

     If the day was changed , wouldn't Jesus tell us in the BIBLE? Hebrews 4:8 says : " For if Jesus had given them rest, then would He not afterward have spoken of another day?" If Jesus told us in the Bible that the Sabbath is the seventh day, Saturday, if it was changed , wouldn't He tell us? He wouldn't want us to be deceived.

            Don't take my word for it, study it out! Study the Bible for yourself and let the Holy Spirit guide you!

               Happy Sabbath, friends!
