Creation Day 7: The Week And The Christian Sabbath
"He rested on the seventh day from all His Work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it"
The six work days of Creation were complete (see Creation Day 1: Let There Be Light and Creation Day 2: The Heaven Above, The Waters Below and Creation Day 3: Continents And Oceans and Creation Day 4: The Calendar and Creation Day 5: Creatures Of The Sea And Air and Creation Day 6: Animals And Mankind).
But there was yet more creating to do. On the seventh day, the LORD God created the week. Unlike all other measures of time (day, month, seasons and years), the week is not itself observable by any natural movement. The LORD specifically created the seven-day "week." If the LORD did not exist, there would be no week.
With the week in place, the LORD then created His true Christian Sabbath (see A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The LORD God Of Creation). The Seventh Day has always been Christian because it was Jesus Christ Who created it as His rest day. He "blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made" (see the Fact Finder question below).
"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." (Genesis 2:2-3 KJV)
Jesus Christ never sinned. The Messiah obeyed The Fourth Commandment by observing the one and only true Christian Sabbath Day. He never observed the Roman / Babylonian "Sun Day" that had even then already long-existed.
"12:8 For the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath Day." (Matthew 12:8 KJV)
After the Messiah's resurrection, "the New Testament Church" ("Jews and gentiles" and "men and women") never stopped observing the true Christian Sabbath. They never observed the Roman pagan "sun day," nor would they ever have blasphemously called "sun day" the Sabbath (see the Fact Finder question below).
"13:42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath. 13:43 Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God. 13:44 And the next Sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God." (Acts 13:42-44 KJV)
There will be no Roman / Babylonian "sun day" worship in the Kingdom of God (see The Return Of The Messiah: The Prophet's View Of The World Tomorrow).
"66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
Fact Finder: (a) Why did the LORD command humanity to "remember" His true Christian Sabbath Day? (b) How did much of the Christian-profession world incorrectly justify replacing the true Christian Sabbath with Rome's "Sun Day"?
