And God spoke all these words, saying: 2 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 “You shall have no other gods before Me. 4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thou-sands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. 7 “You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain. 8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. 12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you. 13 “You shall not murder. 14 “You shall not commit adultery. 15 “You shall not steal. 16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. 17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”
17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these command-ments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
2 Cor. 11:12-15
12 But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast. 13 For such are false apos-tles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
Acts 13:42-45, 16:11-13
42 So when the Jews went out of the synagogue, the Gentiles begged that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath. 43 Now when the congregation had broken up, many of the Jews and devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, persuaded them to contin-ue in the grace of God. 44 On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the word of God. 45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy; and contradicting and blaspheming, they op-posed the things spoken by Paul. … 11 Therefore, sailing from Troas, we ran a straight course to Samothrace, and the next day came to Neapolis, 12 and from there to Philippi, which is the foremost city of that part of Macedonia, a colony. And we were staying in that city for some days. 13 And on the Sabbath day we went out of the city to the riverside, where prayer was customarily made; and we sat down and spoke to the women who met there.
9 “Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mer-cy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; 10 and He re-pays those who hate Him to their face, to destroy them. He will not be slack with him who hates Him; He will repay him to his face. 11 Therefore you shall keep the commandment, the statutes, and the judgments which I command you today, to observe them.
11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” 12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
12 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 13 “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you. 14 You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people. 15 Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’ ”
1 Jn. 3:22-24
22 And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. 23 And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment. 24 Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.

But he is he is always good and it’s good to be in his presence is good to be in his house it’s good to walk with Him and love him in the serve him it’s good to have His Holy Spirit to guide his and directness isn’t it good that he sent his spirit to give us peace to give us that assurance that we need and today I’m going to continue with the Ten Commandments series Remember the Sabbath that is the reason we’re here gathered today on what we feel we know to be God Sabbath the Sabbath day the seventh day that’s why we are here so before I begin. I have Conover I’ll call it maybe a disclaimer before I get into that. I want to read from Romans Chapter three. But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed being witnessed by the law when the prophets even the righteousness of God through faith the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ to all in one all who believe for there is no difference. I feel the need to say before I begin today’s message we know we believe with all of our heart that we are saved by none other than Jesus Christ we are saved by the work of the cross of Jesus it is HIS righteousness friends are right just misses us filthy rags not to God but it’s whenever we are covered with his righteousness he took our sins upon himself we know that that’s how we are saved we are not saved by keeping the commandments of God. That’s not going to save us it’s only Jesus but we keep the commandments of God because we Love Him We Keep A because of what he did. First John will tell you here’s the test of whether you know him whether you truly believe in him but you keep the commandments. We. No that is by grace we are saved through faith not of works lest any man should boast so I say that as we dig into this Sabbath subject we’re here because we love him because we choose to be because we want to obey Him because we want to walk in His ways. We’re not saved by it but we keep it because we are say because we love him because of what he has done for each of us Amen I remember the Sabbath Exodus twenty and I again I’m going to read verses one through seventeen will have the whole ten commandments memorized by Tom we’re done right. OK And it’s important I believe that we do continue because it begins with And God spoke all these words saying I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt out of the house of bondage you shall have no other gods before me you shall not make for yourself a carved image any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or that is in the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth you may not bow down to them nor serve them for I the LORD your God am a jealous God visiting the iniquities of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me. But showing mercy to thousands. See this has New Testaments written all over it showing mercy to thousands to those who love me and keep my commandments God is merciful even in the Old Testament is merciful today he has always been merciful you shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy six days you shall labor and do all your work but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God in it you shall do no work you nor your son nor your daughter knew your male servant nor your. Female servant nor your cattle and your stranger who is within your gates for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth the sea and all that is in them and rested the seventh day therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and how did honor your father and mother that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you you shall not murder you shall not commit adultery you shall not steal you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor you shall not covet your neighbor’s house you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife nor his male servant nor his female servant nor is Ochsner is don’t ignore anything that is your neighbor’s May God out is blessings to the here in the reading of His Holy Word let us pray Heavenly Father we praise you and magnify you we thank you that you are merciful we thank you Father for your grace we acknowledge that you are the creator the heavens and the earth and all that is in them Father we thank you for your Son Jesus Christ by whom we are made righteous that our sins are washed away when we believe in him when we repent of our sins we thank you for your spear did wells within a single US and leads us in or May that spirit lead us today may it lead us into righteousness may lead us as we should walk in our lives or does we serve you may it lead us in a life of faithfulness and or God may lead us into the truth may your truth be proclaimed today may your name be lifted high May you be glorified in Jesus’ name amen. You know of all the Ten Commandments. In one way it seems like the Fourth Commandment the commandment to remember the Sabbath is one that stirs up a lot of the bait stirs up a lot of conflict over the years I have heard many explanations as to why the Christian church should keep Sunday the first day of the week instead of the seventh day Saturday a number of years ago I. Listening to a pastor on the radio and he was teaching on the Ten Commandments wasn’t an extremely in depth because he covered most of them and in one message as he addressed the fourth commandment to keep the Sabbath here is what he said he said we are not held to keep the New Testament Church rather is not held to keep the seventh day sabbath because that was nailed to the cross that’s his explanation that’s why we he says we keep Sunday because that was nailed to the cross think about that claim Well what about the other nine commandments are they not also now to the cross I mean if they nailed one to the cross did he not know all of them to the cross so does that mean that it’s OK to go out and murder now. Because Christ died on the cross is it OK to go murder. Why I think all of Christian then will agree that it is not OK to go out and murder correct is it OK to commit adultery now I mean Jesus died so I mean it should be OK that I go out in adultery right. Obviously not caring what I get a look up here. Or how about Is it OK to steal I mean Christ on the cross right I mean if the commandments was nailed to the cross Well it’s OK to steal it’s kind of have no discussion about that now Service morning what if I was a bank robber is it OK if I say OK I’ll believe in Jesus now it’s but I’m still going to go ahead and continue to be a bank robber. The kids the even the children says no that’s not OK. It is not OK. Now of course this pastor didn’t have any scripture at all to back up that claim that the fourth command was nailed to the cross why because there is none. There is not one scripture to back up that the commandments were nailed to the cross and we’re to ignore them and it’s OK to do those things. So now before I get to the point of who changed. The commandment or to keep the Sabbath from the seventh day to the first in how again let’s look at the true authority what is your true authority folks. The Word of God. And how did. Scripture this morning begin God spoke these words is God our authority Let’s reread four simple verses that I know already read it remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy six days you shall labor and do all your work but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God in it you shall do no work you nor your son nor your daughter nor your male servant nor your female servant nor your cattle nor your stranger who is within your gates for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth the sea and all that is in them and rested the seventh day therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and how loaded it there are a ton more scriptures concerning the Sabbath and I’m going to get to some more those. But in this one brief passage I think we have sufficient evidence to settle any debate about which day is the Sabbath day. Which days or right day to keep First God said remember. Remember this that a connoisseur is the main like God had an inkling that many were going to forget it did he say remember not to murder. No Did he say remember not to covet your neighbor’s things no he said Remember the Sabbath none of the other commandments begin with remember I think he knew why no he knew. That I say that properly I know that he knew that because he knows all things right he knew that they were going to for good so he says Remember the Sabbath day Secondly and I’m going to tag this the most important issue in this entire debate about which days the proper day first ten said but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. And of the bait it that verse clearly identifies a seven day not the first day of the week as the Sabbath day it is a sabbath of the Lord your God I’m going to get back to that another reason or excuse for keeping the first day that you hear from many. Is that the Sabbath was made for the Jews the Sabbath is only for the Jews to keep not for the. Christian church but only for the Jews so this I ask. How could they possibly make that claim with the Scripture that I just read those four verses how could they possibly make that claim my friends. The God that spoke to Moses up on that mountain on Mount Sinai. Is he the same God that we claim that we worship today. Please nod your head or something yes Amen or something OK The same God that spoke to Moses on that mountain gave him the ten commandments is the same God we worship today right in two thousand and eighteen same God OK. So how could the Sabbath only be for the Jews how could the seventh day sabbath only be for the Jews it is not God and not of then if I the Sabbath that the Sabbath of the Jews. He didn’t say the seventh day obsolescent is a sabbath of the Jewish people it is the Sabbath of the Lord your God the same God who created the heavens and the earth the same God that spoke to Moses on that mountain gave him the commandments is the same God that we worship today the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit so how could there be a separation there is not he blessed the seventh day he holloed the seventh day which is to make it holy. No word of Scripture to god bless him how low another day of the week. You will not find it anywhere in Scripture Old Testament or New Testament so if God did not make the change in which day should be kept as a holy day I ask who did man did. Since you didn’t answer man did but lead by Satan I’m going to say that because I know it’s true man made the change. Keeping the first day of the week actually made very little headway as a Christian day of rest until I’m of Constantine most probably know that. In the four century cottage Constantine was the emperor of room from eighty three zero six to three thirty seven and he was a son and you in not as he was a sun worshipper during the years of his reign. They say that he later professed to be a Christian but at heart he remained a devote to Sun worship. He was a sun worshipper through and through. If he truly became a Christian. Why did he not convince the pagan worshippers of the pagan signboard shippers to worship on the true Sabbath instead of the first day of the week so in heart he was still a sun worshipper Constantine created the early is Sunday law known to history in three twenty one A.D. this is what was said on the venerable day of the sun that the magistrates and people residing in the cities rest and let all workshops be closed in the country however persons in gauge and agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits because it often happens that another day is not suitable for grain so he or for Vine right by and planting less be neglecting the proper moment for sets operations the bounty of heaven should be lost so I say OK well if you’re a farmer it’s OK but all others should cease all work on the first day of the week on or that day instead of the seventh. This is from Constantine. Chambers encyclopedia says this unquestionably the first law either ecclesiastical or civil by which the sabbatical observance of that day is known to have been aware Dane is the edict of Constantine three twenty one following this legislation both emperors and popes in succeeding centuries added other laws to strengthen Sunday observance What began as a pagan ordinance ended as a Christian regulation close on the heels of the edict of Constantine followed the Catholic Church Council of Laodicea in three hundred sixty four A.D.. And here is what the church council Laodicea says Christians shall not Judy eyes and be idle. On Saturday Sabbath but shall work on that day. But the Lord’s Day which is what their claim the first day of the week they’re calling the Lord’s day they shall especially honor as being Christians shall if possible do no work on that day If however they are found Judaizing they shall be cut out from Christ. Now that is the Catholic Church Council let me make sure you understand that the Catholic Church Council was saying that if anyone is found Judaizing who are talking about the days are there saying that any want to stay on keeping the Sabbath that they are going to be cut out shut out from Christ what a statement What a bold statement there are so bold to say that if you are keeping the Sabbath the God blessed you’re going to be cut out from Christ imagine such a bold statement we’re brothers and sisters Jesus himself states very clearly that he did not come to change the law that The Father gave Matthew five seventeen through nineteen says Jude Jesus speaking do not think that I came to destroy the law or the Prophets I did not come to destroy but to fulfill for surely I say to you till heaven and earth pass away one jot or one tittle will by a no means pass from the law until all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven but whoever teaches then does them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven my friends we’re obligated to teach the truth I am obligated to teach the truth not that I want to be called great making them have been but I have to answer to God the Lord warned man that he shall not change the teachings that he gave. Again and Revelations twenty two eighteen and nineteen for aught testified to everyone who hears the word of the prophecy of this book if anyone adds to these things God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book and if anyone takes away from the words of this book the book of this prophecy God will take away his part from the Book of Life from the holy city and from the things which are written in this book. Tell me what is a counterfeit. They made them look like another thing right. Something devised to have the appearance of the original or something devised to have the appearance of the true thing right that’s what a counterfeit is. Example money. Can you see what that is. What it is what size bill is it it’s a fifty dollar bill right about that. That’s a five. You know a lot of people make counterfeit bills do you know how they train people to identify. True money actual money do they study counterfeit. Now. They study the true bills go study the true hundred dollar bills or fifty dollar bills or twenty dollars they’ll study him in depth they’ll examine him and examine him over and over and over and over again so that they see the true one they recognize every marking on the true one so when there is a counterfeit they’ll pick it right out they’ll be able to identify it they don’t study the fake they study the true the counterfeit is not true the counterfeit is a lie. Jesus reveals from whom all lies come from in John eight forty four speaking to the religious leaders of his day he says you are of your father the devil and the desire of your father you want to do he is a murderer from the beginning and does not stand for the truth because there is no truth in him when he speaks a law he speaks from his own resources for he is the law is a liar and the father of it Satan is a liar and he is the father of all lies so in order to stew under recognized the truth we must study the truth so that we will recognize the fake Satan is the father of lives he has created an entire counterfeit Christianity. If you don’t believe it Google counterfeit Christianity and look at everything that comes up you’ll be amazed you’ll be shocked you won’t like some of. He has cleverly guided vain religious leaders to introduce completely pagan ideas concepts and practices into Christianity the church has fallen for the idea if it’s tagged a Christian thing it must be OK. Remember who is the father of lies saying. Just because it looks like a Christian not the only outside we must see what’s on the inside Second Corinthians eleven twelve to fifteen says but what I do I will also continue to do that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded jest as we are in the things of which we boast first sets all our false prophets the seed for workers transforming themselves into apostles of Christ and no wonder per se himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness whose then will be according to their works Satan transformed himself into a minister of light he is the father of lies and there is all kinds of counterfeit ideas even within the church the church goes along with many ideas that have pagan roots simply because we’ve always done this these things nearly two thousand years we’ve been doing these things this tradition so must be right. To which I say we as believers each one of us individually have the responsibility to make sure we are walking in truth and not following a law or a counterfeit form of Christianity. If you go into the store. And if you hand somebody a five dollar bill at the register to pay for something. Don’t just take a slot in the door you hand them a fifty dollar bill or a hundred dollar bill what are they going to do. They’re going to grab that marker and are going to cross that yep OK it’s fake or it’s real right so you know my thinking you could have a whole truckload of these five or ten dollar bills and get away with counterfeit ten dollar bills or get away with it. Something in a way right but you could almost because I don’t expect them my friends we need to get our marker out and we need to check everything that we’re gone with the Word of God and make sure it’s lined up make sure it’s not fake make sure it’s not a counterfeit first US loaning five thousand nine hundred twenty two says Do not quench the spear do not despise prophet his prophecies tast all things. Test all things hold fast what is good so hold fast what is true but do away with that is counterfeit do away with that is a lie abstain from every form of evil verse twenty two says. If we are his we should abstain from every form of evil these kids are watch and see where money flies right. And Brown to the depth and complexity of the counterfeit church goes much deeper than the Sabbath some of that information will have to wait for later message because today we are focusing on Sabbath. If we are to recognize the truth in that study the true let’s look at how the early church kept the Sabbath the early church the unadulterated church I wanted hadn’t been affected by the lies yet let’s see how they kept the Sabbath Acts thirteen forty two through forty five so when the Jews went out of the synagogue the Gentiles begged that these words might be preached to them the next satis so there goes that idea that the Sabbath was only for the Jews that just threw that out the window didn’t. It through that right out the window because the Gentiles begged that these words might be to preach them when. The next Sabbath exactly now when the congregation had broken up many of the Jews and devout proselyte followed poem Barnabas who speaking to them persuaded them to continue in the grace of God and on the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the Word of God But when the Jews saw the multitude they were filled with envy and contradicting and blaspheming they oppose these things spoken by Paul. In Acts sixteen eleven through thirteen therefore sailing from trow us we ran a straight course to some some other OSs and the next day came to knock him in the office and from there to fill a pie which is the foremost city of that part of Macedonia a colony and we were staying in that city for some days and on the Sabbath day we went out from the city to the riverside where prayer was customarily made and we sat down and spoke to the women who met there and acts eighteen verse for any reason in the synagogue every Sabbath and persuading both Jews and Greeks. The Sabbath was meant for all who believe in God All who say that he is my God we are to keep his Sabbath listen to the testimony of some of these preachers and leaders about the Sabbath. Now some may be bragging about not keeping the Sabbath and Isaac weigh him in plain sermons on the catechism Volume one pages three thirty four and three thirty six I give you that information so if you want to look for and where are we told in the scripture that we are to keep the first day at all we are commanded to keep the seventh but we are nowhere commanded to keep the first day the reason why we keep the first day that we call the instead the seventh is for the same reason that we observe many other things not because the Bible but because the Catholic Church hasn’t joined it ordered it. Yes I heard that’s true it’s not in the Bible but the Catholic Church Constantine in a Catholic church has been joined this from a Baptist pastor Dr Edward T. his cock and this was a sermon that he gave at the Baptist ministers convention in Saratoga New York on August twentieth eight hundred ninety three there was an is a commandment to keep the holy Sabbath day but the Sabbath day was not Sunday it will however be readily said and was some show of triumph that the Sabbath was transferred from the seventh day to the first day of the week with all which duties privileges and sanctions where can the record of sets transaction transaction be found not in the New Testament Absolutely not he says there is no scriptural evidence of the change of the Sabbath institution from the seventh to the first day of the week what a pity that it Sunday the first day that week comes branded with the mark of paganism and Christian with Kristen with the name of the Son God then adopted and sanctified by the papa will pasta see and bequeath as a sacred legacy to Protestantism. A Lutheran pastor. Augustus neander and Henry road Henry John Rose the history of the Christian religion in church they said this in eight hundred forty eight the festival of Sunday like all other festivals festivals was always only a human ordinance and it was far from the intention of the Apostles the early apostles to establish a divine command in this respect far from them and from the early apostle a church to transform the law of the Sabbath to Sunday. Another one. KEVIN MORGAN called the Sunday problem in one nine hundred twenty three we have seen how gradually the. Impression of the Jewish not exclusively Jewish but given to all God’s people Sabbath faded from the mind of the Christian church and how completely the newer thought underlying observance of the first day took possession of the church we have seen that the Christians of the first three centuries never confused one with the other. The Apostles observe the Sabbath that God commanded that we should keep the seventh day the one he blessed and hollowed in Deuteronomy seven persons nine through eleven. Therefore know that the Lord your God He is God the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love him and keep His commandments they say that a generation is considered forty years and I correct so the time it is given he says for a thousand generations so that not forty thousand years we’re still there we’re still within that window aren’t we. He keeps coming and mercy for a thousand generations with those who who love him and what keep his commandments. Interactive here today and he repays those who hate Him to their face to destroy them he will not be slack with him who hates him he were pay him to his face therefore you shall keep the commandment the statutes and the judgments which I command you today to observe them in Revelations fourteen I let the scripture do the talking right revelations fourteen eleven and twelve and the smoker their torment ascended forever and ever and they have no rest day or night who worship the beast and his image and whoever receives the mark of his name here is the most versatile one of the point to sell here is the patience of the Saints Here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus Christ. Receive that. Here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus Christ that is the scripture the backs up what I said that if we love Him we will keep His commandments if we were see this son if we allow a spirit to guide us we will keep His commandments who here believes it is Holy Spirit’s going to guide you to disobey one of His commandments. Good no hands one up because his Holy Spirit will not guide you to disobey any of His commandments Yes we’re focusing on the fourth but I assure you that His Holy Spirit is not going to guide you to go out and steal his Holy Spirit is not going to guide you to bow down to a false god. But his Holy Spirit is going to guide you to follow him to walk in His ways to imitate him to follow all of his ordinances in Exodus thirty one. Twelve to seventeen in the Lord spoke to Moses saying Speak also the two the children of Israel say surely my sabots you still keep it for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you you shall keep the Sabbath therefore for it is holy to you every one Hooper faint it shall be put to death for whoever does any work on it that person shall be cut off from his among his people now the church the Catholic Church might want to claim if you keep the Sabbath you’re cut off from Christ but God says otherwise for whoever does any work on it that person so be cut off from among his people there’s only one is going to tell us who’s going to be cut off and that’s not me it’s got. A man he’s of authority. Work so be done for six days but the seventh day is a sabbath of rest holy to the Lord. HOLY to him whoever does any work on the Sabbath day he sell surely be put to death therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. God has not changed friends and he made a covenant it’s a perpetual Covenant to be observed even today in the New Testament church it is a sign between me and the children of Israel forever for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed again I say do you think God made two separate days. If you think so I would like you to show me that in Scripture because he did not. He blessed the seventh day and how did and said Remember it to keep it holy. If we want to do what that which is pleasing to God. We each one of us has a responsibility to search out the scripture and follow the truth. Follow the truth that we find in his word don’t follow the what man proclaims but follow the truth that we find right here in God’s fair problem focus from find the truth that we find right here in these words. And nowhere in these words will you find were God said to observe any other day as a holy day rest other than the Sabbath day the seventh day. And we church would want to identify with him. If he told the Israelites that by keeping the Sabbath that it then a five that we are worshipping the One True God. Then what’s the other day resemble who gave the other day was a god. We already established that it was man guided by the liar so then we are keeping his image if we are keeping that day were following that image again first John three and whatever we ask we receive from him because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in his sight that is what gets to mom or to do those things which are pleasing in his sight. And this is his commandment that we should believe in the name of the Son Jesus Christ and love one another as He gave us commandment he who keeps his commandments abides in him and he in him and by this we know that he abides in us by the spear whom he has given us and I said there are a ton of scriptures on the Sabbath and one more that I didn’t share didn’t get in here that I want to share from Isaiah Chapter fifty eight beginning with Verse thirteen. If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath from doing your pleasure on my holy day as God’s word he’s calling it mildly day and call the Sabbath of the light the holy day of the Lord honorable and shall honor him not doing your own ways nor finding your own pleasure nor speaking your own words then you shall delight yourself in the Lord and I will cause you to ride on the high heels of the earth and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father the mouth of the Lord has spoken my friends the mouth of the Lord has spoken we are not to do our own thing when his day it is his day and if we follow Him If we walk in His ways if we worship him on the day that he set aside the day that he made holy if we found our delight in that he will bless us. We do it because we want to do that as that which is pleasing unto him. Because his word is true we must walk in the truth. So we have to determine under That’s why we’re all here. But we have to reveal the truth to others to. His word is true many men have lied to deceive. Being led by the deceiver. But we are the Sabbath we hold it dear to our hearts and again I’ll go back to well begin with we’re not saved by it but we keep it because we want to do that which pleases the Lord that we worship the God who created the heavens and the earth the God spoke to Moses there’s not two gods there’s one. There’s not one god of the Jews and one god of the Gentiles there is one God Father Abraham Isaac and Jacob that we love. Do we respect him. Do we walk in His ways do we allow His Spirit to guide us in truth that’s the question today Are we willing to go against the flow are we willing to go against tradition to make sure. That it’s not counterfeit that is the true thing true Christianity sorts out some of those things look at counterfeit Christianity and see what you find some of it shocking. But believe me he does he’s thrown all kinds of counterfeit bills in there counterfeit things in there I’m said bills but he’s Satan started all kind of counterfeit things out there he’s thinking well the church is going to ignore that little five. You know that Clark ignores that little five throws a Reagan a jor but you’re going to look at them others Yeah well the church might look at those big things but ignore many little things that are counterfeit. We must make sure. That we sort of serves to make sure that we test all things to make sure it’s the truth and not the counterfeit Amen amen.
