Sabbath Truth Introduction
After years of attending Church and believing Sunday was the Sabbath, I was astounded to find out I had the wrong day and that it was God’s desire for me to keep the Sabbath and on the day He blessed and sanctified. This grieved me greatly. Not only that, but as I researched this further I found it had a major link with Bible prophecy and the first Beast and the Little Horn power described in Daniel 7 and Revelation 13. I was both astonished and angry to find how and who changed the Sabbath to Sunday and that the Bible even tells us that this antichrist power would change God’s laws and spread false prophecy. Like many, I had also been taught it was acceptable to keep any day and anything else was legalism or we are under grace now not law. I never could understand the reasoning of those who taught or thought that. I considered the Commandments and contemplated whether God would really be pleased with me worshiping idols or having other gods before Him. I could only conclude that it made no sense. Surely God would not allow lying, stealing, murder or blasphemy. I know Jesus once summed up the last six Commandments as to love your neighbour as yourself, but I am certain he could not have meant love your neighbour as in adultery.
As I searched for truth, I asked why it was legalism to keep God’s Commandments. Some said, “It’s not legalism to keep the other nine, its just legalism to keep the fourth Commandment.” This never made any sense to me either. I thought about the many scriptures where Jesus points out that if we love Him we will keep His Commandments. These are just some of the scriptures I considered; 1 John 2:4 “He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” John 15:10 “If ye keep my Commandments, ye shall abide in my love even as I have kept my Father’s Commandments, and abide in his love.” 1 John 5:3 “For this is the love of God, that we keep his Commandments: and his Commandments are not grievous.” John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my Commandments.” No matter how hard I searched, I could never find a legitimate reason for excluding the fourth. Something was screaming out inside me that something was very wrong but I thought, “How could so many Churches have it wrong?” There must be something I am missing. Bewildered, I continued to keep Sunday with no clear answers to what the truth really was.
One scripture I found and did not understand was Revelation 12:17 which says, “And the dragon (Satan) was wroth with the woman (The Church), and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the Commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” I found through studying Bible prophecy, that this refers to a Church God would raise up after the dark ages to restore His Church as found in the book of Acts, and the Sabbath before Satan slowly changed it by the death and torture of millions over the centuries. For reasons now obvious, Satan would hate and make war with this Church and try to keep people from it. This now left me with the question of which Church keeps all God’s Commandments? I was surprised to find more than five hundred Sabbath keeping Churches of different denominations but none that we attended. How sad I now felt. God loves me so much that He sent His only son to die for me and with His love being totally unconditional there was no way in the world I was going to look for excuses not to spend this time with God because it might cause some inconvenience to my lifestyle. We should desire to return the same unconditional love and not grieve God by calling spending a day with Him legalism. If we truly love God how could we possibly do that? Besides the next page that shows how the seventh day Sabbath has been kept from creation to eternity, the pages that follow are the result of research on every excuse we have heard regarding the Sabbath. The real eye opener was how it got changed to Sunday. I encourage you to read on and find out the truth about what many call History’s Greatest Hoax.
