How To Keep The Sabbath

How To Keep The Sabbath




Your Sabbath Questions Answered

Is it necessary to go to church on the Sabbath?

It's true that when God first instituted the Sabbath in Eden, He made no mention of going to church on that day; He just set it aside for a holy purpose, which He would expand upon at a later time. (See Genesis 2:1-3.) And in Exodus, He did indeed give us more details about the specifics of that holy day in the Ten Commandments. Still, the Ten Commandments give no instruction that we are to gather together for worship on that day. They just give guidelines on what it means to keep it holy. (See Exodus 20:8–11.)

But as we move forward in Scripture, we come across an enlightening verse in Leviticus: “Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation. ...

Is it possible to obey the law?

The vast majority of Christians have been taught that since the “law is spiritual” and we are carnal, no human will ever be able to meet the requirements of the perfect law in his or her lifetime. Is this true?

Has God really given us a law that is a great idealistic but impossible goal toward which converted souls should struggle to meet but never expect to attain? Is there some hidden reservation or secret meaning in the many commands to obey the law God wrote on stone? Or did God mean what He said and say what He meant?

Many teach that only Christ could have obeyed that law and only because He had special powers that have not been made available to anyone else. Certainly it ...

What day is the Sabbath day?

“Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made” (Genesis 2:1–3).

According to this Scripture—

1. The time when God made the Sabbath was at the end of Creation week.

2. The way in which God made the Sabbath was by taking a day—the seventh day—and resting on it, blessing ...

Shouldn't we keep Sunday in honor of the resurrection?

While many wonderful events in the Bible occurred on certain days of the week, there is no direct command from God to keep them holy.

For instance, Jesus died for our sins on a Friday. That is arguably the most significant event in all of history, marking the moment our death sentence was commuted and our opportunity for salvation assured. But not even one Bible text hints that we should observe this day of such great significance.

However, there is indeed a memorial of the resurrection commanded in the Bible, but it is not keeping Sunday holy. Instead, the apostle Paul wrote, “We were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory ...

Hasn't the calendar been changed?

Actually, we can be positive that our seventh day is the same day Jesus observed when He was here on Earth—the day He kept every week as the Sabbath. (See Luke 4:16.) The days of the week have never been confused. Here’s why some people ask this question …

Before 1582, the world went by the Julian calendar, named for the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar, who implemented it in 46 BC. The Julian calendar had calculated that it takes the earth 365-¼ days to orbit the sun. However, it actually takes about eleven minutes less than that. Those eleven minutes accumulated each year until, by 1582, the calendar was 10 days out of harmony with the solar system.

Are we still under the law?

This question—Are we still under the law?—is often asked in an effort to diminish the law of God in the life of the Christian. It is said, “Since we are not under law but under grace, we do not need to keep the Ten Commandments any longer.”

But is this a valid point?

The Bible certainly does say that we are not under law, but does that imply that we are free from the obligation to obey it? The passage is found in Romans 6:14, 15: “Sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”

How easily we could prevent confusion if we accepted exactly what the Bible says. Paul ...

Doesn't 1 Corinthians 16 prove the Sabbath was changed?

In 1 Corinthians 16:1–3, the apostle Paul writes,

“Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also: On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come. And when I come, whomever you approve by your letters I will send to bear your gift to Jerusalem.”

In this passage, the apostle was writing a special appeal to the churches in Asia Minor. Famine conditions were not unusual in areas of the Middle East (see Acts 11:28–30), and at the time, many of ...
