Wesley's Notes for Numbers 28:2


28:2 Command the children of Israel - God here repeats some of the former laws about sacrifices, not without great reason, partly because they had been generally discontinued for thirty eight years together; partly because the generation to which the former laws had been given about these things was wholly dead, and it was fit the new generation should be instructed about them, as their parents were; partly to renew their testimonies of God's grace and mercy, notwithstanding their frequent forfeitures thereof by their rebellion: and principally because they were now ready to enter into that land, in which they were obliged to put these things in practice.

    Lots of questions about the Sabbath in these forums. Sabbath is on Saturday. The Jews was to rest on this day. do no work Most Christians worship on Sunday. Jesus rose from the dead on a Sunday is why we choose this day to come together to worship. Even thou we should worship Him everyday.

    Yes the Catholic church changed the Julian calendar to the Gregorian. Constantine was a SUN worshipper so are the Jesuits look up their symbol. But where not COMMANDED TO SET ASIDE A DAY FOR THE LORD. You can pick any day or none. I do like David says SEVEN TIMES A DAY DO I PRAISE THEE!
