The Christian Work Days, The Christian Sabbath
"For 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"
The "LORD God" did the work of creation i.e. "the LORD God made the earth and the heavens."
"2:4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens" (Genesis 2:4 KJV)
The LORD God is also known as "the Word of God" (see The Kingdom Of The LORD God and What Does Word of God Mean To You?). As stated above, "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made."
"1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:1-3 KJV)
The Holy Scriptures plainly identify "the LORD God" and "the Word of God" as Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Who was later born as a man i.e. "the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father."
"1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." (John 1:14 KJV)
In accordance with the Will of God the Father, it was by the LORD God / the Word of God / Jesus Christ that all things were created, so that, when all is done, in Jesus Christ all things will be reconciled to the Father (see The Church: Mission Accomplished).
"1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
"For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth ... And He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead"
As plainly stated in the Holy Scriptures quoted above, the work of Creation was done by Jesus Christ. He created physical work with His Creation of the physical world.
"1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The Fourth of the Christian Ten Commandments (see Israel In History and Prophecy: Law Of The LORD) is actually a two-part statement of Creation - two Commandments in one. The first part:
"20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work" (Exodus 20:9 KJV)
The second part:
"20:10 But 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: 20:11 For 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." (Exodus 20:10-11 KJV)
Jesus Christ created the "work week," from the first to the sixth day - not from the second to the seventh. Jesus Christ then created the seventh-day Sabbath, as stated in the Commandment itself - "For 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." While humans did then exist, they had just been created, late on the sixth day - they had yet to do any work. As with everything else, Jesus Christ was the first to observe His true Sabbath Day because He was the first to work (see also The First Act Of Faith).
"2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. 2:4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens." (Genesis 2:1-4 KJV)
Fact Finder: Man-made "Christianity" (see Will Jesus Christ Obey Your Christian Religion?) claims that Christ's true Sabbath was replaced by "sun day" because, they incorrectly say, Christ's resurrection occurred on the day that the Babylonian and Roman pagans worshiped their sun god. How does the Word of God prove that Jesus Christ was actually resurrected on His true Sabbath Day?
