The Sabbath Day; The Lord's Day; or a holiday?

We can surf the net; consult encyclopedias; read almost all learned books, and ask individuals and corporate bodies for "proof" of the day of the week upon which the Biblical Sabbath should be celebrated. All without success. Some sources mention "tradition".

Various thoughts outlined below come to mind when considering this time dis-honoured dilema -- or opportunity?

  • Adamnan in his "Life of Columba" of the Isle of Iona in Scotland (see The Bride) quotes Columba late on the eve (Friday) of his death on the Saturday, as stating that "the morrow is the Sabbath" . Upon what basis did he hold the Sabbath on Saturday? Why did Adamnan (?) change the day?
  • Historically a dialogue took place between the eastern orothodox Christian Church and Rome which finally resulted in the Roman doctrine being adopted up to this day. What was the rationale of each church at the time, and upon what Scriptural authority was the opinion of Rome (1) set forth; and (2) adopted?
  • Why and by whom are ALL the days of the week given pagan names? Not least Sunday. Sun worship is worship of Tanis the sun goddess. The Viking gods Woden and Thor are worshipped in the names Wednesday and Thursday respectively. By Whom, why where and when were thes names chosen? The Normans are the progeny of the Vikings.
  • Genesis tells us that God rested upon the seventh day of Creation. Sunday, our day of rest and worship is traditionally (origin?) regarded as the first day of the week. Is this contradiction temporal or Spiritual or both?
  • Why do our kin folk in the Jewish community hold the Sabbath to be Saturday?
  • What is the meaning and Spiritual usage of "The Lord's Day?"
  • What is the Spiritual inheritance both for the individual and nation of worship on the correct day as The Sabbath? Consequently what is the dis-inheritance of denial of the correct Sabbath Day, individually and collectively?
  • Finally (?) does it matter? - - To Whom?

The Sabbath and the Words of Jesus Upon The Cross “It is Finished”

In short if the Crucifixion took place on what we call Friday then Jesus "day of rest" in the tomb, that is to say the Sabbeth day is Saturday. This is therefore the day which our Bible commands us to keep Holy. Thus our Sunday, the first day of the week is "The Lord's Day" -- of Resurrection!  Formal worship on this day is thus in denial of the tomb and thus also of the Crucifixion. It is the outworking of arch deceit by powers and principalities!

Jesus words printed above are both the pivotal issue, and resolution of the question asked in the title of the previous section. This is so as the work of Jesus Christ, The Lord Most High upon Calvary and its conclusion was and continues to be, part of the description of the work of Creation given to us in Genesis. The focus is the syncretism (a blend of Truth and flasehood between a temporal day and a day of Creation; and which, or is it Who is the first and the last in each case.

We seek resolution of this matter in the Bible where we find no secular name for the day upon which the Crucifixion, Sabbath or Resurrection occurred. All we are told is that the Resurrection took place on the first day of the week and that the Sabbath was and therefore always has been the day following The day of Crucifixion.

Jesus words from the Cross quoted above not only confirm the conclusion of His earthly ministry (work), but also the name of the sixth; and also the last day of His work of / as Creation. This is so as the work of Calvary was / is a synchronicity of Creation as Kairos. Thus we have the Sabbath as the seventh day, that is the day of Rest .The Lord’s Day is not the Sabbath, it is the day of Resurrection on the first day of the week as the Gospels confirm. To reverse the order of these two days is to accept knowingly or otherwise, the spirit of deception therein.

This reversal places the resurrection on the first day of the week before the Crucifixion and death on the evening of the sixth day. The latter recognised by worship on the Sabbath, the seventh day. This is not only an error in the temporal but a deceit of many, both individual and corporate body. Whether this is deliberate or otherwise; in ignorance or otherwise; it leads to the ultimate denial of both events by the present church temporal . This is also to deny Jesus Mission as an Incarnation of The Christ which in turn is to deny The Christ. Why so? -- Because, by definition, a death must occur before a re-birth!

We choose Friday as the day of Jesus death. Therefore this marks the end of his flesh ministry. Thus Saturday is His day of rest in the grave after the six days of work as in the Genesis account of Creation. Therefore Saturday is the Sabbeth Day of rest upon Scotland and all of Christendom should worship and give thanks. This is then followed by the first day of the new Creation. This is The Lord's Day upon which His work of the second Eden  and therefore the Third Adam commences.

We are concerned with Christ’s “Three Days Journey”, spanning three days but lasting about one and a half days. Presently the church temporal causes the Nation of Scotia to worship on Sunday. From the discussion above, what is the Scriptural basis and therefore Blessing of the Nation in this regard?

The people are the Nation of whom the church temporal is servant not the other way around. Through worship in the church temporal do the people understand the difference between the Sabbath and The Lord’s Day? Which is the adjective in the phrase “Sabbath Day”? Here is the cause and explanation of the error, confusion, quandary, deceit? By whom? Sabbath (no article) as Spirit is not a day at all. Neither therefore is “it” an it. Sabbath as Spirit, is death (not mortal) in life; and Life in death. Amen. -- Amen meaning The Lord’s Will Be.

Christ gave His LIfe for His Church; who (not which) are His People. Therefore each individual must also die for Him. Death, like Love does not deny its own truth. This is why and how the church temporal must die before resurrection as The Church Spiritual upon earth. Only giving unto death is to Love. Who, or is it what does the church temporal take from the people?

Some regard the use of a particular day as Sabbath to be unimportant. This “grave” error is to deny the manifestation of Kairos Who not which, without exception always IS at a precise temporal moment. Thus to deny recognition of this moment either in its significance or earthly timing is to deny the Crucifixion and thus the Resurrection. If Sunday is Sabbath, as a Nation we should be enabled to worship in Jesus Name -- being the Will of God. Do we? Enabled here does not refer to being free to do so, nor is the word used in the nominal sense. It is the matter of fact which is highlighted.

As we all know the phenomenon of light and darkness every twenty four hours is a Spiritual happening manifesting in the temporal because of the earth's rotation. The tilt of the earth's axis causes the variation in daylight duration. It is therefore useful to consider humanity as a Creation of The Cosmic Christ. We are then caused to enquire into the origin of the names of each day of the week. This is to ask ourselves who was the author of these names; when and why; upon what basis and to what purpose, if any? Saturday is seen to relate to Saturn; Sunday is readily identified as relating to the planet of that name, and Monday relates to our moon. What of the remaining days? Genesis tells us of the seven days of Creation. The intellect despite the change of context of the word "day" is likely to retain a time perspective be it twenty four hours or several million years for each "day" of Creation. Thus the finite intellect would seek to understand Infinity. These considerations should cause us to ponder our relationship with the planets and thus whether humanity is part of Nature or simply has dominion over it. Is Nature an "it"? Better by far that we adopt the Wisdom of The Child in asking the question "twinkle, twinkle little star how I wonder what you are ...?" Biblical Wisdom as Sophia does not ask the stars what they are, but Who we are? This same Wisdom cannot deny its Self an answer.

The word worship in this Witness is defined as:- “acknowledging the supremacy of”. The Name of Jesus is “I AM -- The Way, The Truth, and The Light”. I AM is The Will of God , Who is within -- the Name Jesus. It is not therefore an intellectual search for the correct day of the week within Whom to worship The Lord Jesus as Cosmic Christ. The word correct used in the previous sentence is temporal. It is not a material search at all! When Sabbath is revealed to the church temporal it will in part see the gravity of it’s error. Amen.

The significance of the discussion thus far is reflected also in the church temporal’s basis for the determination of the date of Easter Day. This arose historically from the intellectual conclusion of one man. Do both of these related topics offer a dilemma; situation; irrelevancy; frustration (ie impasse), or opportunity? An initial consideration of which of these words is found to be most productive will prove useful. Amen.
