    WHY DO PEOPLE NOT REST ON THE SABBATH DAY / SEVENTH DAY?

    And God RESTED on the SEVENTH DAY.

    And God BLESSED the SEVENTH DAY and SANCTIFIED the SEVENTH DAY.

    Many have changed the day of rest from the SEVENTH DAY to the first day.

    There are TWO Biblical reasons people believe this.

    1) The first day of the week is the day that Matthew 28:1, Mark and Luke 23:55, 24:2 relate that the sepulchre was opened and Jesus was not found there.

    2) During the 40 days that Jesus was on earth before He rose into heaven He appeared to His disciples seven times. Five of the seven times Jesus met with them on the FIRST DAY of the week. The other two times, the day is not mentioned. Look at Mark 16:9-13, Mark 16:14-18, Luke 24:13-33, Luke 24:34, Luke 24:36-44, John 20:11-23, John 20:26-29.

    None of the examples given above concerning the FIRST DAY of the week allow any authority for us to change the SEVENTH DAY to the FIRST DAY.

    Jesus NEVER GAVE AUTHORITY TO DO THIS.

    (Mark 2:27-28) "And he said unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath."

    If we believe in the Father and His only begotten Son, then we have Christ in us every day, not just one day per week.

    This new understanding is an enhancement of the 7th day, not the abolishing of it. It was made to last FOREVER. This is a day that God BLESSED and SANCTIFIED!

    Christ ALWAYS honored the Sabbath.

    The Apostles kept the Sabbath AFTER CHRIST DIED; look at Acts 13:14, 27, 42, 44, Acts 16:13, etc.

    Pentecost is a holy SABBATH day; i.e. a day of rest.

    In Acts 17:2 and Acts 18:4, Paul is continually feeding the people Scripture on the SABBATH. Christ never abolished the Sabbath; neither did Paul. God never said anything concerning that fact, and if He wanted that day changed He would have made it abundantly clear.

    Further study concerning the importance of the Seventh Day can be found throughout ALL Scripture; as well as in the Book of Enoch.

    Flossy my prayers are with you. I also suffer from anxiety and depression, and am on meds, we were going through trials and I couldn't stop crying, everything kept hitting us from every side, so I started looking up scripture on depression and anxiety and trails and watching every video from Charles Stanley on what I was going through I kept reading and reading and reading some more and pray pray pray and pray some more keep your eyes and mind on God. He has delivered me, I'm still on my meds but He has given me a peace that surpasses all understanding. Ask God to search your heart for anything that could be hindering your walk with Him. Make sure there is sin you have forgotten to repent for and you have truly forgiven anyone who has hurt you or you have anything against. This all can hinder your prayers, your walk with Him and it can also hinder your prayers. Surrender your life completely to Him seek Him with ALL your heart mind and soul. God puts us through trails for many reasons, either because of something we have done, sin in our lives, to get us to put our trust completely in Him or to get us ready for the next season of our lives. God has promised to never leave us or forsake us. It may seem like He like He's not there but He is. Keep your eyes, your mind and your heart on God and seek Him with ALL your heart and soul. God bless you and I pray for strength to get you through this season of your life.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 6:16
    Yes you are a candidate for salvation. You must repent of all sins and come to Jesus for forgiveness. You need to start reading your Bible too. Open it to the Book of

    John 3. Psalms 51

    If you will go back to the opening of this website there is a section to learn the steps to salvation. You'll see a prayer you can pray. It's very complete and you'll be born again; and you'll go to heaven when you die. The good news is that your child's soul went to heaven; and is waiting for you.

    You can start by reading these few scriptures: And then to the salvation page.

    Isaiah 1:18

    Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

    1 Peter 2:24

    Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

    1 John 1:9

    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    Isaiah 1:18

    Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

    Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

    1 John 1:9

    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    1 John 2:2

    John 20:23

    Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

    John 3.16 states that God loves all and provision has been made for all , what is scary is people do not believe this .
  • Bob on John 16:28
    We can read the bible for ourselves with the guidance of the Spirit of truth . Some things in the bible are hard to understand, but generally with or without the guidance of the Holy Spirit our understanding is determined. The key is to have an ear for the truth and if we listen God will give us more truth . If we turn away from the truth we lose from getting more light . Never quit ! Go on seek the Lord and live ...
  • Depression - in Reply on Matthew 24:9
    Go on YouTube and type in:

    Spiritual warfare depression

    Listen to Derek Prince and some of the others. There are lots.

    Depression is demonic. How it got in is usually from what we confess over ourselves. You need to fill yourself up on more Bible. Read it out loud and make that demon listen to it too.

    I'm in agreement with you in the name of Jesus that you have the mind of Christ, and infirmity and depression have NO dominion over you! You must leave her and go into dry places and stay there! In Jesus Name!
  • Adam, is there a bible verse that will back that up
  • Third Eye is an ABOMINATION - in Reply on James 1
    It's not our job to spoon feed the Bible to you. Every Walmart in America sells Bibles.

    Goodwill stores have them.

    If reading is hard, there are numerous videos on YouTube that you can listen to: church sermons, Bible, everything.

    You get yourself born again according to John 3 (click on this link) and God, the Holy Spirit will be your personal Teacher.

    FIRST you are going to have to Repent of this Third Eye hogwash. You cannot give yourself to Jesus till you give all the demonic stuff back to the devil, in his face!

    He is the Destroyer, NOT GOD. Blame the right person. This Pandemic is Satan's and it is engineered to kill 1/3 of Earths population. It started in China. It is what it is. The only way to survive is to have Jesus as your Savior.

    Come in through the front door ok? You don't kick the door down and expect people to run like deer to get you what you want.

    Come in just like we did. Needing some truth. Seeking some answers. Willing to listen.

  • Adam - in Reply on Proverbs 6:16
    Yes, God knows your heart. He knows when people are genuinely sorry and repentant of their sins. We all sin and God chose plenty of highly imperfect people for His special work. The man who wrote more books of the Bible than anyone else used to murder Christians. God can forgive anyone thanks to Jesus paying our debt. But we need to actively follow Him and genuinely repent of our sins in my opinion. Some people use grace as an excuse to sin and enjoy living in the world, but that's not following Jesus. If we don't follow Jesus we will go to hell.

    Ok, I've checked out the dollar bill & picked up on the various things to note on it. But that nasty spider remains elusive! I also read up on the original reasons for this design (with its pyramid, eye, etc.) & it appears to have been so printed for more honourable reasons. I looked at a website (& others) called Biblewheel & then to the 'Great Seal' to get a fuller understanding of this. But I do take your point, that this design does smack of a Masonic/New Age appearance; I wonder whether we as Christians should be unduly perturbed by this: after all it is still legal tender & doesn't deter from our using it & its acceptability. However, thank you for that insight: I never knew this before.
  • I am on James 1
    "I am" can only communicate with you through Means. What are these Means? The WORD, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper, are the only way to hear, learn, keep, and know who "I am" is. Listen to "I am". Read the WORD for in it you have eternal life. No man can come to "I am" but by JESUS the "I am". By HIS undeserved LOVE, HE gave you the "Gift" of Faith and not you saying I have faith because I "chose to accept "I am". Be far from it. "I am" the way the Truth and the LIfe. No man can come to the Father, but by JESUS the "I am" in the eternal "not made" Triune GOD. The Jews as my children misbehaved so much and killed all those who I sent to them including my only begotton Son to save them that needed a physician to be healed but "they would not". So I turned to the Gentiles as it is written in the Word "I am" gave them, but they turned to fables, made false gods, killed the young children and babies by fire, wanted a king instead of me to lead them, killed the prophets, wanted the world more than Me, chose to live without "I am", and so reaped what they sowed. But as I have loved them I sent my Son "I AM" to be a sacrifice for the entire world that through HIM JESUS THE "I AM" was crucified and was resurrected and now all those who believe it have hope, peace, and love for one another to meet them in the clouds when I come back on that great and final Day. Faith in the Christ "I am" is all I ask of you, because I AM LOVE. The "I AM" Holy Spirit will guide you through this life to to know and learn of Me and my LOVE for you through the Word, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved"

    Agape to you.

    I come quickly!

    Thanks Tiffan for that information - I will read up on Franz's writings & also Jewish Voice. I'm not from the U.S. but have your currency notes which I will examine. Though, I guess, what the government inscribes on it has little bearing on Christians; it would be different if the govt. wholly followed the Lord & His Word.
  • John L - in Reply on Mark 16:15
    Bob Hilt,

    You may have misunderstood what I said.

    And to answer your question; No, I do not believe Jesus the king of the Jews or Paul the writer of most of the NT to be an anti-Semite.

    I said YOU had hostility toward the JEWS; not Jesus or Paul.

    Are the Jews THAT BELIEVE IN GOD cursed or blinded?

    Will God save His people Jacob or will He back out on all of His promises?

    And I said that YOU were mistaken concerning Jesus speaking Greek and not Hebrew, the oldest language in the world. Any comment on that?

    In addition, I stated that YOU were mistaken concerning the Greeks spreading the Gospel and not Jews, as Christ came for the lost sheep of the house of Israel; and it was spread from there.

    And I said that you were mistaken concerning the understanding of the word Jews.

    Do you really believe that all God fearing Jews are condemned to death? Again, what of the promises of God to the Jews? Not the non-believers, but the believers.

    Those that CLAIM (that means that they are not Jews) to be JEWS BUT ARE NOT..

    Why are they NOT Jews?

    Because they are of the synagogue of Satan. That makes them NOT followers of God anymore.

    The people that conspired to kill Jesus were children of the synagogue of Satan CALLING THEMSELVES JEWS.

    Just because the Jewish High priest may have been of Jewish descent (he was appointed by the Roman Governor) it did not automatically make him a follower of God. He was a murderer.
  • Chris - in Reply on Mark 16:15
    Bob, I fully agree that Israel, both then & now are in a terrible spiritual state, even those of them that have 'a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge'. They have indeed proven themselves unworthy to partake of the Grace of God & are entirely reprobate.

    Yet, how do we account for the many Scriptures from both the OT & NT, that show that even in spite of their spiritual condition, they will still figure very prominently in the last days & even at the appearing of the One Whom they pierced. Zechariah chapters 12 to 14 clearly show a coming time when Israel will not only be protected but will be restored back to their position according to election.

    So, is there "another plan of salvation for unbelieving Jews?" I see that those Jews living at the time of Christ's coming, as also the remnant of the Gentiles, will have the opportunity to partake in Jesus' Millennial reign. Many I know will refuse, but for the Jews who knew the Scriptures & see the Messiah of God come in fulfilment of those Scriptures will have their eyes opened & experience that glorious light that will pierce those long deceived & clouded hearts.

    What does this healing & restoration then do to the preaching of the Gospel before that time? Why do we bother now if there exists a further opportunity for the remnant on the Earth to be saved? I understand that the Gospel is preached now so people everywhere, at their death, can enter into eternity with God as their Father rather than be estranged from Him forever in Hell. The Great Tribulation will decimate the world's population, as no virus can, but those who survive that, including Israel, will still live on: some to live with Christ in His Kingdom on Earth, & others rejecting Christ, outside those walls & destined to the Lake of Fire at their death. To wipe out Israel altogether from prophecy about her, would be very difficult & dangerous for me to do.
  • Can you still go to heaven after having an abortion
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Mark 16:15
    John L so the words of Jesus are "serious hostility" towards the Jews?

    That is what the Jews write in their commentaries about Jesus and how evil he was for condemning their religious practices.

    Paul writes in 1 Thessalonians 2:14 thru 16 - For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, EVEN AS THEY HAVE OF THE JEWS: WHO BOTH KILLED THE LORD JESUS, and their OWN PROPHETS, and have persecuted us; and THEY PLEASE NOT GOD, and are contrary to all men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: FOR THE WRATH IS COME UPON THEM TO THE UTTERMOST.

    I suppose Paul is an evil antisemite also along with Jesus

    John 19:12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release (Jesus) him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.

    Rome did not conspire to kill Jesus, guess who did?
