"to Neapolis and from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia"
Paul arrived at Neapolis when he first began preaching the Gospel in Europe, as directed by Christ.
"Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia, After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not. And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.
Paul arrived at Neapolis which served as the port for Philippi, "which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia."
"Therefore loosing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the next day to Neapolis; And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days." (Acts 16:11-12 KJV)
Although many well-meaning people have blindly accepted the Satanic lie that Paul taught and observed the pagan Roman "Sun Day" (see Sun Worship) in place of God's only true and holy day of worship as commanded in The Fourth Commandment, Paul was a genuine Christian who observed the only genuine weekly Christian day of worship, the seventh day, the only day that The Creator "blessed and sanctified" (Genesis 2:3 KJV). Sunday worship is a blatant violation of the Fourth Commandment; replacing the Sabbath with Sunday is blasphemous and Satanic.
"And on the Sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither. And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul. And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us." (Acts 16:13-15 KJV)
