The 7th Day Sabbath - Relevant for Christians Today?

Written by Johnnie W. Cusaac Jr.

Important Note - Please feel free to follow along with the noted scripture references, being like the Bereian's (Acts 17:11) who studied to show themselves approved by testing (1Joh 4:1) all things and rightly dividing for yourself the word (2Tim 2:15) - In other words, don't believe the author or anyone else, but search the scripture and ask God, the Holy Spirit (and no other - John 14:26), to reveal the truth to you.

PRELUDE

Ever since the genesis of the church of Christ there has been a question as to "the law", and whether it applies to the Gentiles. When I talk about the "the Law" in this report, it will primarily be referring to the Law of Moses, the "Old" law, or the Pentateuch.

 

There has also been the question as to whether a part of that law, the Sabbath, is still relevant for us Gentiles. In other words, should Christians be concerned with or keep the 7th day (Saturday) as a worship observance. Most Catholics have been resigned to accept the Vatican position and tradition, but that has not been so with Protestants. There has been a lot of confusion in many Protestant denominations as to the law question, causing much division and conflict among the body.

 

Sabbatarian and Law keeping organizations primary claim is that Sabbath observances were originally changed by Clement, Constantine, then by the entire Roman Catholic church in the Counsel of Laodicia in 364AD, and reaffirmed in 1563 by the Counsel of Trent (these all being true documented and historical facts.)

They also consider the Catholic church as "The Beast" of Revelations - Rev 7:8-13 (e.g. - from the seven mountains of Rome.) They'll note that it was in Daniel 7:25 that this "Beast" will change times and seasons; ergo, the changing from Saturday to Sunday.

Because of this, many prominent leaders of Sabbatarian organizations, such as the Late Herbert W. Armstrong, and the self proclaimed Prophetess Ellen G.White have even gone so far in their writings as to condemn Sunday keepers for their practice of not keeping the law. The latter personage has even gone further to suggest in her book, "The Great Controversy" (and other writings), that the keeping of Sunday is actually a "mark" of the Beast (Rev 13:17).

If this were true then Sunday keepers should be wary and concerned because this would mean a certain forfeiture of Salvation (Rev 14:9/Heb 10:26), and guaranteed damnation in the lake of fire (Rev 14:10,11;19:20) - (once you received "the truth" of the Sabbath [as they would say].)

 

If it (the "mark") is not true then these organizations would be guilty of alarmism and outright lies, which would indicate a certain judgment on their part (Heb 10:27/James 3:1/Rom 2:12.) with the Father of lies (John 8:44).

 

With that in mind, this would necessitate serious consideration and examination of all the facts as to reveal the truth of the matter (considering that your very salvation may be at stake - either side.) And if you are revealed the truth then you would have the immediate responsibility to reject the lie and accept the truth. Otherwise you would have no excuse, extenuation or escape before the throne of God on judgment day (your lie would be your "mark" - Rev 21:8).

 

We will carefully explore and investigate the facts for the truth of this issue, much like a scientist or detective would do. The "truth" in this report will be taken and researched entirely by and from the scriptures (2Tim 2:15), because, as I will show, there are countless references that clarify this issue (much too many to ignore or deny.) There are surly many extra Biblical sources that can be cited to prove a doctrinal bias. But if we are Christians then we will accept the Bible as the "Supreme Court", and final source of arbitration. If the Bible is the true Word of God (and God is 100% correct), then we will not need any other source or thing anyway.

 

So let us begin our journey and investigation of the true facts in this matter, and may God give us all wisdom (James 1:5), illumination (Pro 6:23), and insight (Isa 59:21) by the Holy Spirit in order to rightly divide the word for our ultimate benefit. Amen.
