What day is the Sabbath? the Sabbath is the 7th day, which is Saturday. Sunday being the 1st day of the week Saturday the 7th. Not only for the Jews, the Sabbath provided for man at creation in Genesis before the Jews were a chosen people. The Sabbath is for all Commandment keepers of God. also read Revelation, Christ is coming back for those who Keep the Commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ

I truly think that it has a deeper meaning for the respect of authority, as a person is part of godliness and honesty, all authority through father God. And parents are our first instance of authority on the earth which the Lord has given us.

Can you be more specific? Of course we all want to make a point to underline our own belief. The question is: Does that match what the Bible teaches?

Exodus 20:26, “Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon”. You say, “I believe this verse speaks about the building of pyramid shaped temples which were very common at the time, not only in Egypt. Usually the place of worship (altar/temple) was at the top of the structure”. An altar was considered a sacred place, on which an innocent life of an animal was offered to God, symbolizing the ultimate sacrifice of that of “the Lamb of God”, or Jesus, who would take away the sin of the world. The reason for a “step-less” altar is to avoid exposing the nakedness of the person bringing the sacrifice, not necessarily the priests only. However, the Levite Priests had to wear special attire. “And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach. And they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his sons, when they come in unto the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they come near unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not iniquity, and die...”, Exodus 28:42, 43. A typical size altar made of stone would be 36”H X 48” X 48”. The portable altar for the tabernacle was approx. 54”H X 90” X 90”. “And thou shalt make an altar of shittim wood, five cubits long, and five cubits broad; the altar shall be foursquare: and the height thereof shall be three cubits”, Exodus 27:1. The pyramids on the other hand, were huge and built to serve as abode to the Pharaoh in the “afterlife”. So, I don’t quite understand what do pyramids have to do with the altars?

What day is the Sabbath? Exodus 20:8. The Sabbath is literally the 7th day of the week. It was the the last day of God's creational work, It is commandment that crowns the Creator's goodness towards mankind. A day that was sat apart from the other six (6) days in creation which were somewhat pair off, but the Seventh day (Sabbath) was somewhat alone, so the Most High God saw fit to pair the Sabbath off with mankind. Now the Sabbath means the day of Rest, in that man was to labor and achieve in all of his mental, physical endeavors in six (6) days, but this day is set apart for man's good that he could reframe from all of his work and commune with his Creator. Rest in his thinking and body and in his spirit, to be refreshed in whole. It is a day of worship and celebration with family and friends and giving of praise towards his Creator for the good pleasures in his life, and to understand the will of God through observing creation and reading and teaching his holy word. Contrary to some opinions, the Sabbath is a Commandment, not simple a precept or statute or law. This was God's own word handed down to be observed from generation to generation, until heaven is ushered in for eternity. This day has so many prophetic messages, it simply could be understood as a foreshadow of things to come, God is so loving that he sends the Sabbath to man through space and into to our present time, week after week. The Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath. Praise be unto the Most High God.

Did you know that JESUS is the Lord God who brought the Israelites from Egypt the house of bondage and gave them the ten commandments on Mount Sinai? The one who appeared in a burning bush to Moses?
