An Inconvenient Truth about the Lord’s Day – Is the Lord’s Day Sunday?
We see many people going to church on Sundays, saying “We keep the Lord’s Day.” Um…the Lord’s Day? In the past, I thought the Lord’s Day was Sunday like many people. However, now I realized an inconvenient truth about the Lord’s Day.
Christians insist that Sunday was kept since the Apostolic Age and present the following verse as evidence:
I, John… On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit… (Revelation 1:9-10)
The Apostle John said he was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day. Christians claim that the Lord’s Day is Sunday. However, you will not find any verse which confirms their insistence. In other words, there isn’t any single verse which authorizes that the Lord’s Day is Sunday.
Then, what does the Bible say about this Day? Let’s find out which day of the week is the Lord’s Day through the Bible.
In the age of the Old Testament, the Lord was Jehovah. Then, what is the day of Jehovah?
Then the LORD [Jehovah] said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the LORD, who makes you holy… (Exodus 31:12-13)
The Lord said, “You must observe MY SABBATHS.” From this verse, we can easily understand that the day of the Lord or Jehovah is the Sabbath day. The Sabbath day is the seventh day of the week and it’s Saturday in our calendar system (see this YouTube video.)
In the age of the New Testament, the Lord is Jesus. Even in the age of the New Testament, the Lord’s Day is the Sabbath not Sunday.
For the Son of Man [Jesus] is Lord of the Sabbath. (Matthew 12:8)
Since Jesus said, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath,” it’s obvious that the Lord’s Day is the Sabbath. Some claim that the Sabbath was abolished because it’s a feast of the Old Covenant. Unfortunately, they misunderstand the Bible. Jesus came to the earth to fulfill the Law.
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law of the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them (Matthew 5:17)
That is to say, Jesus changed the Old Covenant to the New Covenant to fulfill the Law. For this reason, He set an example by keeping the Sabbath day in the manner of the New Covenant not of the Old Covenant:
He [Jesus] went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. And he stood up to read. The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him… (Luke 4:16-17)
He showed us how to give service to God on the Sabbath day. The disciples and apostles also kept the Sabbath day by following the example set by Jesus (Acts 17:2-3; Acts 18:4.) Then, why do most Christians not observe the Sabbath day although Jesus and His disciples kept this day? This fact is also written in the Bible.
He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws… (Daniel 7:25)
Who will be against the Most High, that is, God? It’s Satan. It’s prophesied that Satan would try to change the set times and the laws. The NLT version, of this verse says, “He will try to change their sacred festivals and laws.” According to this prophecy, the New Covenant including the Sabbath day had been destroyed (see this post.)
Then, who can bring us the lost Sabbath day again for our salvation? Who is the Lord of the Sabbath day? God (Christ) is the Lord of the Sabbath day. Therefore, only God (Christ) is able to bring us the Sabbath day again because this day belongs to Him.
In this age, the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) keeps the New Covenant including the Sabbath day. What does this mean? The Lord of the Sabbath day has already come and you can meet Him in the Church of God. Christ Ahnsahnghong has brought us the Sabbath day and the Passover to restore the ruined New Covenant according to the prophecy of the Bible.
Christians think the Lord’s Day is important. However unfortunately, many of them keep the wrong day instead of the true Lord’s Day. Will God be pleased if we keep the wrong day instead of the true Lord’s Day? God has come to restore the destroyed New Covenant and to lead us to the kingdom of heaven. Please keep the true Lord’s Day, that is the Sabbath day in the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG).
The Sabbath day is the Seventh day chosen by God to commemorate the power of Creator since He rested from His work of creation on the Seventh day. God blesses His ppl and makes them holy on the Sabbath. The Sabbath is one of the commandments of God, and it was kept not only in the Old Testament times, but in the New testament times. What about now ? Do all Christians keep the Sabbath day in the present time? No. Only the members of the WMSCOG keep it according to the word of God.
Yes. Keeping the New covenant Sabbath day is the expression of our love to God.
Is Sunday Lord’s day? you won’t find record concerning this in the Bible. According to the Bible, Lord’s Day is the Sabbath that is the Seventh Day of a week. Sunday is the first day of a week. Weekend, the seventh day, refers to Saturday. In order to be saved, we should keep the will of God. Keeping the Sabbath is the will of God. Only those who keep the will of God can be saved.
Why is the Lord’s day, Sabbath inconvenient Truth ? Cause we did wrong. To make the Sabbath convenient, we must follow the God’s law
Let’s keep the Sabbath, Lord’s day.
Lord’s day is Saturday not Sunday. God said definitely it is Sabbathday. We can be blessed by keeping Sabbathday. Forsaking our thoughts, let us obey God’s teachings.
God called the Sabbath day my Sabbath. If we believe in God and want to go to heaven, we must keep the Sabbath, God’s commandment.
Who made Lord’s day. God is Lord of lords. So who can make Lord’s day. God only. What day God made as Lord’s day? Sunday or Sabbath(Saturday )?
If you keep the commandments of men, we will be destroyed.
God said the Sabbath is the Lord’s day in mot only the old testament time but also the new testament time. God never say people of God should keep the Sunday worship instead of the Sabbath. We must keep the Sabbath to the end of the world.
If you do not obey the Gospel with those who do not know God, you cannot be saved. Let’s keep the new covenant and be saved.
“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy”
Every word in the Bible contains the will of God who wants us to enter the kingdom of heaven our eternal home and adapt well to life in heaven. The Bible tells us not to add to or take away from God’s word and it also says obey is better than sacrifice.
Ex 20:8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.”
In order to keep the Sabbath day holy as God commanded us, first we should “Remember” the 7th day as the Sabbath day !
The Bible testifies that the Lord’s Day is only Sabbath day is the day of Jesus too
But, Sunday Service is just the day of people for rest not for our Creator. Though the difference of only one day,God surely separate the day for God !!
Keep the Sabbath day by it holy in WMSCOG
I see…. According to Bible Lord’s Day is definitely sabbath.
Satan had changed all the sacred festivals and laws of God. Now I am 100% sure and understood what’s God’s will. This is so clear. Thx for your article.
Since Christ is the Lord of the Sabbath day, only Christ can bring us the Sabbath day. Today, only the World Mission Society Church of God observes the Sabbath day according to the Bible. (Even the SDA church does not keep the Sabbath day in an appropriate way (Please refer to http://crc.ac/half-a-sabbath/).
Amen. Father Jehovah was the Lord of the Sabbath and Jesus was the lord of the Sabbath. Now, our Father Ahnsahnghong is the Lord of the Sabbath who blesses us with holiness.
The Bible clearly says those who remember and keep Sabbath, God’s Day, become his people and will be saved.
“This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.” Rev 14:12
Yes… Let’s keep it Holy and then we will become his people and can go back to the kingdom of heaven, our hometown.
God wishes his people to remember his special day and keep it holy, so that the keeper may be blessed. However people do not regard it as the special day of God do not feel God’s mind. That day is for us ,and not burden.
God knows us and makes us holy when we keep the Sabbath. How can I miss this blessing?
we should get these blessing 😀
