“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.” [Exodus20:8]



God commanded us to keep the Sabbath day. And the bible testifies that the Sabbath is Saturday.[Mark16:9] Our savior Jesus kept the Sabbath on Saturday as his custom.[Luke4:16] And all apostles who followed Jesus kept the Sabbath on Saturday according to Jesus’ example.[Act17:2] It means that we must keep the Sabbath holy, following the examples of Christ and the apostles.

However, numerous churches in the world today worship God every Sunday. Are there any Bible verses that say we must worship on Sunday? No, nowhere in the Bible dose God tell us to keep Sunday.

Then, when did Sunday worship begin? And where did it come from? It was the Roman Emperor Constantine’s Sunday Law that exerted the greatest influence on the change in the day of worship. Among the Romans who suppressed Christianity, Mithraism—the worship of the sun-god Mithra—was prevalent, and Sunday was a sacred day for Mithraism.

[The Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible, Volume 3, Merrill C. Tenney]
One of the numerous oriental religions that became popular in the Roman Empire at the beginning of the Christian era, especially among the Roman soldiers, was Mithraism, a religion that was imported from Persia. Mithra was the god of the sun. Consequently, Mithraism regarded Sunday as a sacred day.

Many Romans, who were affected by Mithraism at that time, regarded Sunday as sacred. In Early 2nd Century, members of the church of Rome did not fully understand the Sabbath of the new covenant. They forsook the Sabbath and began to worship on Sunday to reduce persecution. They rationalized Sunday worship by referring to the fact that Jesus was resurrected on Sunday. Sunday worship became a universal custom among many Western churches led by Rome.

In the meantime, Roman Emperor Constantine stopped persecution of Christians and legalized Christianity in A.D. 313. And he made Sunday, which had been observed as a day of worship by the Western churches, the official day of rest in A.D. 321.

Why did he do that? He intended to politically unify the entire Roman Empire through Christianity. As Christianity had a great influence on the empire, he used Christianity as a way to unify the existing pagan religions as well. It means that Constantine did not have a pure belief in Christianity, but just pretended to believe in God.

As this decree was issued, Sunday worship spread to all the churches. Sabbath worship disappeared completely, and Sunday worship was established.

So far, we have learned the origin of Sunday worship. Sunday worship began not from God but from man. And Sunday worship is certainly established by the worship of the sun god.

Nevertheless, numerous churches in the world keep Sunday. They forsake God’s Sabbath and keep Sunday—the sacred day of the sun god.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’” [Matthew 7:21-23 ]

“Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.” [Matthew 24:20–21]

According to the Bible, those who do the will of God can enter the kingdim of Heaven. Which is God's will, Sunday, which is not in the Bible and originated from the worship of the sun god, or the Sabbath on Saturday? To keep the Sabbath on Saturday is the will of God.

Even in Matthew 24, Jesus clearly said that The Sabbath day must be kept until the end of the age. Therefore we must keep the Sabbath on Saturday until the end of the age. Let's remember the Sabbath and keep it holy. And let's enter the kingdom of Heaven together.

    Whatever excuse people make, God's people listen to God's voice. So to obey God's command , "Remember the Sabbath day by keep it holy", what should we do? We should first "remember" "the day of the Sabbath." because God chose the seventh day which is Saturday to give us blessing and make us holy. Only the WMSCOG observes the Sabbath day of the New Covenant.

    A worship day that is a sign and communication day between God and God's people. Here is the important meaning of the Sabbath.Satan has tried to separate God's people from God. The most obvious and simplest of his methods is the change of the day of service to worship God.
    The work begins from the time of Constantine in Rome with a Sunday holiday.
    After that, by the Roman Catholic Church, the fourth commandment of the Ten Commandments, called the Sabbath, was subtly changed to Sunday.
    It is the beginning of Satan's tactic to make the word of the Sabbath disappear from people's memories.Then, gradually making the Sunday perceived as the Sabbath, as if it were the same day
    The two days have the difference between one day, but one is God's promised day and the other is the day to worship Satan.

    Around us , still there are many false Christ and Prophets trying to deceive God's people,Us so that we could not enter the Kingdom of heaven.
    Only Those who participate in Christ's body n blood will understand and receive God's words n teachings.
    let us deliver Good News, Sabbath, Passover, Seven feasts of three times of New Covenant to the world.

    Let us remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy! The way to go back to heaven is following the word of God.

    The Sabbath is the truth that God promised to those who keep the Sabbath can get God's blessings. To enter the kingdom of heaven, we should need the sabbath containing God's promise.

    Those who keep the words of God can enter the kingdom of Heaven. It’s the lesson of God. (Mt 7:21)
    Now, we all know that keeping the Sabbath day on Saturday is the commandment of God. And the Sunday Worship is not the lesson of God, but the custom from other religion.
    Who can go to Heaven? Only those who keep the Sabbath day can go there!!

    God wants us to keep the Sabbath on Saturday until the end of the world. As God's people, we must keep the Sabbath, not Sunday service.

    It is not easy for everyone to attend something holy and sublime every week. There must be a good reason why God has made us do that not easy. It may be because we can realize that we are sinners who can be forgiven by God only by keeping the Sabbath weekly without forgetting to be holy. In addition, what a joyful day is that you will learn the character of living together with God in heaven.

    God Elohim commanded us to keep the Sabbaths every week. If we didn't remember the Sabbaths, how would we keep it? Since we remember the will of God to designate the Sabbaths and then we can keep it. By keeping the Sabbaths, we can remember the Day of Creation appointed by the Creators.
