Sabbath
Why was it changed, who changed it and why did they change the day of the sabbath?
 

This page is not an endorsement for the Seventh Day Adventists! I am simply writing what I was shown.

I do not agree with very many of the Adventist beliefs except for the seventh day being the true sabbath. It is for you to decide if there is any importance in honoring any one day as "The Sabbath." Every day that I worship Jesus is a "Sabbath" for me but it does not matter how I feel when people seek truth on the subject. (that is between you and God) The original law is easy enough to observe so I have no reason to oppose it or come against the original law. However, I do have an argument against Sunday being honored as "The Sabbath" when it (probably) is based on the worship of the sun god of the Egyptians and ultimately the Sumerians. Both civilizations and their religions preceded the 10 Commandments which were given to Moses centuries after the established religions and gods of those two ancient civilizations. Remember, Moses was raised to be Egyptian and Abraham was raised as a Sumerian.

Why was the sabbath changed from the seventh day to the first day?

That's a good question!

I will explain it the way it was revealed to me and is according to my belief and understanding.

The reason God established one day a week, the seventh day, so that landlords, slave drivers, men in power all honored God's command and there was nothing to prevent HIS followers from worshipping on the same day and there was no argument... no choice... no discussion... it was the law of God. There was an accepted law of order and it was to benefit mankind. All workers were ordered and expected to give that day to all men to worship and worship together as families and neighbors. Expressing God's love and teachings. TRUE ORDER!

Then Constantine and his early church tampered with God's commandment and weakened the law of order. They used (twisted?) Paul's letters to do it... or that is the way it appears.

Jesus clearly told us to keep HIS father's laws. God told us to remember the sabbath and to keep it holy. He did not say to have two days. As far as I can see the sabbath was changed to weaken the rule of order that the Lord, God established. Pure and simple. This helped to further divide the Jews from the Gentiles, thus weakening God's followers. Then certain Christians split away and chose to honor God's commandment, another split... ever hear the old truth; Divided we fall? We fell.

Modern day Graduates of seminaries that are taught that Constantine was the wonderful savior for the early Christian church will argue this point. They argue because men in authority tell them to do so! Any person who is led by the Holy Spirit can see through this fault and lie. Forget the credentials of man given those graduates, go with the spoken truth of God and HIS son Jesus. God said to remember the sabbath and keep it holy and Jesus always reminded us to keep HIS father's laws. That's good enough for me. The modern church teaches many things that are not scriptural.

Constantine and his council at Nicea, 325 AD...

Constantine and his early church leaders told the church to change it. Constantine also allowed the pagans to bring their holy days and practices into one faith, the Christian faith. Constantine may have appeared to be the founder and saviour of the Christian church but his fruit doesn't show it.

Look around. Do you see how the differences in doctrines, all made possible by Constantine and his early church founders, have weakened God's people and caused dissension. Is that good fruit? Jesus tells us to determine the tree by the fruit it bears. The Christians are weak and led astray by decisions made in those early days and they have grown more evil with each generation. Each doctrine attacking the others.

PHEW ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ something stinks here! As for me? Gimme that old time religion! Before those devils tampered with the word of God and HIS commandments. I don't know of any one doctrine that is pure in the word and laws of God. They have all been tampered with and weakened! (You can see why Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to lead us and teach us)

Now we are all pitted against each other. Two different days of the sabbath and no power. Most folks don't (really) keep either sabbath holy. It is a day of fried chicken, football and golf... or which ever hobby you honor over God.

You can see the results! Evil abounds and the people are following like blind sheep. God and HIS son, Jesus are not happy with you! What part do you not understand? It's all there in the commandments. Those beautiful rules are there to protect and keep each one of us! Not to entrap you. Think about it. God thought it was important enough to engrave it in stone. I think I will honor HIS "suggestion." Even though Paul said otherwise, in his letter to the Colossians. About Paul; I am afraid to trust Paul and Constantine's decision more than Jesus, where my eternity is concerned. Jesus did remind us many times to keep HIS Father's commands. I am a little concerned that Paul's letter or Constantine's motives may be less than good for my eternal relationship with the Creator. There is no promise from God or HIS Son that covers you if you compromise HIS ways or instructions for "the way to the Kingdom."

Paul's letter to the Collosians 2:16, among other scriptures, pretty well did away with instructions from God to keep the sabbath. It is logical that if you change (or abandon) one of HIS 10 commandments, it is just a matter of time until all of them are weak and unenforceable. Now murder is allowed... it comes in many forms... abortion for one, and different degrees of murder such as "murder in the 2nd degree," etc. If you think about it; all of the "10" have been done away with and rendered useless. Is there any question as to why the world is in such terrible shape? Evil abounds and the breaking of God's laws have allowed it! All sanctioned by the "church."

While Paul may have been writing about laws other than "the 10," it had the effect of lessening the importance of keeping the sabbath. Did Paul mean for it to be used in this manner? I don't know.

By the way... Constantine and his group also elevated the letters of Paul to be equal with the teachings of Jesus. That was a major weakening of God's word. Paul was a dedicated and beautiful apostle but he was a student of Jesus' teachings. Yet doctrine elevates his writings to the same level of those of Jesus. Yes, Paul was under the influence of the Holy Spirit of Jesus, as many of us are to a lesser degree... but do not elevate any person's teaching to that of Jesus! Get the point?

Ask yourself why most of the New Testament is dedicated to Paul's letters? I read that over 2/3 of the New Covenant of Jesus (NT) consists of Paul's letters! I must admit that it makes me wonder about "why" Constantine based the new church (325 ad) on Paul's letters. Read Romans 1:10 "Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law." Is there any wonder where the New Age movement gets it's authority? PHEW! I have heard it from many devils... I have heard the little devils from many different doctrine/denominations begin their arguments with;"a loving God would not do such-and-such." They get a lot of "free run" from "love."

Constantine was the Roman Emperor and governing his people was one of his goals. Remember; Paul was a Roman citizen and he wrote in his letter to the Romans, chapter 13... Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2 So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. 4 The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. 5 So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience. 6 Pay your taxes, too, for these same reasons. For government workers need to be paid. They are serving God in what they do. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: Pay your taxes and government fees to those who collect them, and give respect and honor to those who are in authority.

WOW! From the writings above, I can see why Constantine loved Paul's letters!

I suppose Hitler's followers quoted the same verse? I can mention many other demonic leaders but I won't.

I say remember the sabbath and keep it holy as God told us. HIS Son reminds us repeatedly to Keep HIS Father's commands. Peter warned us that people would twist Paul's letters. Ask yourself; How much twisting and who did the twisting? (2 Peter 3:16)

Christians did not keep HIS commandments and you see what has happened to the world. A world where Christians allowed it all. Can you see why Jesus said, "the road is narrow and few will find the way?" (paraphrased)

Now you know what I think. More importantly; what do you think? Tell me.. john@john33.com
