    Hi Allen.

    To the Jews the sabbath was a day of rest. It was on the seventh day of the week,

    Deuteronomy 5:15. And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.

    They couldn't even gather sticks to burn to keep warm. Numbers 15:32-36.

    Today some are confused when they see people gather on Sunday and thinking Sunday is being made a Holy Day or replacing the Jewish Sabbath day which is ( Set apart/Holy for a day of rest )

    Ezekiel 20:19-20. I am the LORD your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them;

    And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.

    Being that the Sabbath is a day of rest and one would want to keep the sabbath he should understand what that rest represents.

    Do a study on Hebrews Ch 3 and 4 and see is keeping the sabbath and giving it merit enters you into his rest.

    Infact a good study in all of Hebrews would broaden our understanding.

    God bless.

    It's always been Saturday.

    Side note: the word Saturday in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, etc (Sabado) literally means Sabbath.

    Precious friend, Allen, for the "weekly" sabbath, see: Exodus 23:12; Exodus 31:15; Exodus 34:21; Exodus 35:2; and, Leviticus 23:3, TO the nation of ISRAEL, but not to us Gentiles.

    For the "yearly" sabbath, a "sabbath expert" will have to tell you; I do not know.

    GRACE and Peace, Precious friend.

    Hi Brother Allen,

    Since the beginning of creation, God rested on the seventh day, and he also gave man this day to also rest our minds and bodies. Since God created us in his image, he understood (like him) that we also needed to resthence the gift from God of the Sabbath Day to us (Man).

    Mark 2:27

    "And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:"

    The 1st day of the week is Sunday, and the last day of the week is Saturday. The weekly Sabbath Day has always been Saturday and is still to this day!

    With all this said, you can still perform additional research to satisfy yourself regarding the Sabbath as the info is readily available on the web.

    Hope this helps!

    God Bless.
