    There is no scripture for Sunday sabboth as it is the beginning of the week. Saturday, the seventh day will always be the sabboth and it is for rest. Mark 2:27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: God rested on the 7th day as are we to.We can worship and work on Sunday. That being said a man can worship any and everyday if he wishes. Colossians 2:16

    To Irene 123: Hi Irene, Good to meet you again. Worshiping God every day of the week is not only OK, it is desirable. But missing your special appointment with God on Saturday Sabbath, My holy day, as He calls it, is not OK. Isa. 58:13. I can tell you for sure; God never changed His Sabbath, from the Creation: But, people did, and that’s not right. Jesus observed His Sabbath: Let's follow Him!

    There are only a few cases in the Bible when God writes with His own finger messages , to communicate with man i.e. To us: The Ten Commandments, to Belshazzar, Dan. 5:25, and to the people that brought the woman caught in adultery Jn. 8. In every instance the addressee s was terrified and listened. Today, we dare mock God when He says If you love me keep my commandments Jn. 14:15 What shame!

    O sing unto the LORD a new song for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
