What is the Sabbath Day? And Is It Still Important Today?

2020-11-07 07:45
Many people think the Sabbath is abolished in the age of the New Testament and we don't need to keep it.

However, God commanded us to remember and keep it holy. And Jesus and His desciples also kept the Sabbath. We also must observe this day by remembering it.

"Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God... Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy." (Exodus 20:8-12)

The Sabbath day is the fourth commandment of the Ten Commandaments.

Jesus set an example for us to follow by keeping it.

"He [Jeuss] went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he wnet into the synagogue, as was his custom..." (Luke 4:16)

Jesus' disciples and apostles also kept it by following Jesus' example.

"As his custom was, Paul went into the synagogue, and on theree Sabbath days he reasoned with them form the Scriptures, explaining and proving that the Christ had to suffer and rise from the dead..." (Acts 17:3)

Then, why is the Sabbath day so important?

It's important because it's a sign between God and His people.

"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 31:13)

By keeping the Sabbath day, we can be acknowleged as God's people. Also we can know the true God through the Sabbath day.

The Sabbath is the seven day or Saturday based on today's calendar system. Today, only the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) observes the Sabbath day by following God's command.

    As someone insists he is God's people he is attending the church so that he'd like to worship God and be approved by God as His people. It is very important to go to church on A special day because God designates it as His Day as A memorial Day for Him. It is Sabbath and still important to His people. Sabbath was designated as A holy and resting day that God created heaven and earth for six days and rested from His work. It is undeniable truth and already proved so far!

    Not all believers will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only those who indeed keep God's commandments. The Sabbath is one of God's commandments we should obey. As people admit, only God's people will have the right to enter the kingdom of heaven. So, whoever wants to be saved and live in heavenly kingdom should prove that he belongs to God. This is one of the reason we have to keep the Sabbath. Without keeping the Sabbath, it's impossible to long for heaven's kingdom. What is more, Christ Jesus, our Savior, has set us an example of keeping the Sabbath regularly. According to the Bible, those who do not keep the Sabbath are profaning God. We should not do this wicked thing at all!

      Most Christians keep the Sunday service. But it's not based on the Bible and is just a man-made rule.
