on how the day was changed, then these proponents can only be doing one thing. If they admit the Sabbathwas changed by persecution and force then they have to admit that they are worshipping on the wrong day.However, this group does not want to do that so they search the scriptures for some verse that they canmake an assumption on to try and say that the Sabbath was changed to Sunday in the Bible. Of course youalso get the other groups that will tell you the fourth Commandment was abolished using one of hundreds of different reasons. Then there is another group that found that they could not prove from the Bible that thefourth Commandment was abolished and so they attempt to prove that ALL Ten Commandments wereabolished. When you have the inconsistency of Christians teaching that it is either Ten, Nine or ZeroCommandments or the day was changed, you know something is definitely very wrong and God's law is underattack. Daniel 7:25 also tells us that the little horn would change God's law and persecute the Christiansaints, and of course they did both just as we are told. This also seems to be conveniently ignored ormisunderstood. Watch a true story on the death of a Sabbath keeper.
Sunday cannot be the SabbathBefore covering the real truth on the Sabbath to Sunday change, let's look further at the Bible weekly daynames. In Biblical times, the days of the week were basically called 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th or Preparationand Sabbath. The numbering of the days actually revolved around the Sabbath as shown in the above table.The verses translated “first day of the week” are actually saying first day after the Sabbath. This in itself says that these days were NOT the Seventh day Sabbath! The phrase “first day of the week” in the KingJames Version uses the Greek words “mia” (first) “ho he to” (of the) “sabbaton” (Sabbath). The word day isan added word and does not exist in the Greek. So the phrase more correctly reads “first [day] of thesabbath” which for clarity could be translated as first day after the Sabbath or first day of the week. JohnGill's Exposition of the Entire Bible (1690-1771) commenting on Matthew 28:1 on the phrase first day of theweek says: “towards the first day of the week, or “sabbaths”; so the Jews used to call the days of the week,the first day of the sabbath, the second day of the sabbath, &c. take an instance or two (z).” There would notbe many people today who would understand the meaning of the phrase first of the Sabbath or second of theSabbath etc, and so it is typically translated as first day of the week. Thus Luke in this case is saying thatthis day is the first day AFTER the Sabbath and hence is also saying that this day is NOT the Sabbath. It is infact NOT possible to say that the Sabbath is Sunday due to the very names of the days of the week since theyare actually named around the Sabbath and so the first day of the week can NEVER be the Sabbath. Thisblows both “first day of the week” arguments right out of the water before we even start.
Satan's typical perpetuated excuse for the above facts is, “Yes, the Sabbath is still Saturday but we worshipon Sunday now!” Were does the foolishness end? To begin with, the Sabbath cannot be so called when whatmakes it the Sabbath is done on another day now can it? While those taking this path may feel comfortablewith this foolish reasoning, don't they realize that God will not accept such nonsense?
