Do We Really Know What Day
Is YEHOVAH God's Sabbath?
Which day is the seventh day? Saturday or Sunday? Or even some other day?
YEHOVAH God "blessed" and "sanctified" only "the seventh day" (Gen. 2:3).
If a person is just one day off in observing the Sabbath, it doesn't count.
For instance, if a person is just one day off in observing the Passover, Yeshua
said, "ye have no life in you" (John 6:53). If a bridegroom invited guests
to his wedding, and they were a day late, they would miss the wedding (cp.
Matt. 25:10-12). Let us therefore be like the men of Issachar "who had understanding
of the times" (I Chron. 12:32; see also Esther 1:13). The modern Roman calendar
is NOT YEHOVAH God's calemdar. The Romans rejected YEHOVAH's ways (Romans
Professor Eviatar Zerubavel, in his ground-breaking work
Day Circle, proclaims "the dissociation of the seven-day week from
nature has been one of the most significant contributions of Judaism to civilization."
What did he mean by this? Could it be that the Jews divorced themselves from
YEHOVAH's true Sabbath and weekly cycle?
I also ask you -- WHY would YEHOVAH God complicate the Israelites' lives
by having them keep TWO calendars or reckonings, one for the weekly Sabbath
and one for the annual holy days?
The Fourth Commandment is a pivotal one, the keeping of which is a sign between
YEHOVAH God and His people. The sign is so YEHOVAH can recognize who His people
are by when and how they keep it. If there is a particular day, we need to
know when it is. Just because people have traditionally kept a certain day
for a period of time does not mean it is correct. We need to search the Scriptures
diligently to see if these things are so. -- JDK
