Your Sabbath Questions Answered



Why did God make the Sabbath; why should we keep it?

The Bible says: “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. … For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it” (Exodus 20:8, 11).

“Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them” (Ezekiel 20:12).

“Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all” (James 2:10).

“Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps” (1 Peter 2:21).


God gave the Sabbath as a twofold sign:

(1) It is a sign that He created the world in six literal 24-hour days, and
(2) it is a sign of His mighty power to redeem and sanctify men.

Surely every Christian will love the Sabbath as God’s precious sign of Creation and redemption. In Isaiah 58:13, 14, God says all who would be blessed must first get their feet off His Sabbath. In fact, it is a matter of life and death. The deliberate breaking of any one of the 10 Commandments is a sin. Christians will gladly follow Christ’s example of Sabbath keeping. Jesus’ custom was to worship on Sabbath, as was His apostles’ custom.

“And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read” (Luke 4:16).

The first time a number is mentioned three times in Scripture is in Genesis 2:1–3, when God blessed the seventh day as a sign of those who worship Him. In Revelation 13:18, the number 666 is an identifying sign of the beast.
