Appendix 10

ONLY  8  BIBLE TEXTS TALK ABOUT SUNDAY ...

HERE ARE THE "FIRST DAY" BIBLE TEXTS
 

Millions of conscientious Christians attend church every Sunday, the first day of the week.  They do so believing that somewhere, somehow, someone changed the day of worship.  Either that, or they aren't aware that God set aside the seventh day, not the first day of the week as His holy day.

It is true, a change has been made.

But by whom? We've discovered that God made the Sabbath during the first week of earth's history.  He set it aside as a weekly appointment between man and Himself - as a blessing, a refreshment, a date between two lovers so to speak (God and man.)

If God changed His mind about His special appointment day with us, wouldn't He have recorded so momentous an adjustment in the Bible?

We've already seen that the beast power claims to have made the change, but what does the Bible say about it?

There are eight texts in the New Testament that mention the first day of the week.  Look at them carefully.

             Matthew 28:1
             Mark 16:1,2
             Mark 16:9
             Luke 24:1
             John 20:1
             John 20:19
             Acts 20:7,8
             1. Corinthians 16:1,2

The first five texts simply state that the women came to the sepulchre early on the resurrection morning, and that Jesus rose from the dead.

Now look up John 20:19 in your Bible.  It tells us that Jesus appeared to the disciples later on the resurrection day.  It says that the reason they were assembled was "for fear of the Jews."

They were scared.  No telling when the Jews might grab them and treat them to the same fate as their Master.  They were hiding.

They had seen their beloved Master die on Friday.  They returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment." Luke 23:56.  And now they're hiding with the doors shut " for fear of the Jews." John 20:19.

There's no mention of a change.

The seventh text is Acts 20:7,8.  It says "and upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.  And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together."

This was a night meeting - the dark part of the first day of the week.  In Bible reckoning, the dark part of the day comes before the light part.  Genesis 1:5 - "and God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night.  And the evening and the -morning were the first day," The dark part comes first.

The Bible reckons a day from sunset to sunset.

The seventh day begins on sunset Friday evening.  The first day of the week begins sunset Saturday evening.

Paul is together with his friends on the dark part of the first day of the week - Saturday night.  This is a farewell get-together. He preached until mid-night, when poor Eutychus falls out the window. (Acts 20:9).

You can imagine how relieved they were when it was found that God spared his life.  Verse eleven says that they talked till the break of day and then Paul departed.  Verse thirteen shows that Paul spent that Sunday morning traveling to Assos.

There's nothing here either concerning a change of the Sabbath.

The New English Bible translates this text like this: "On the Saturday night, in our assembly for the breaking of bread, Paul, who was to leave the next day, addressed them, and went on speaking until midnight," Acts 20:7.

The last text mentions the first day of the week in I Corinthians 16:1,2.

It says - "Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.  Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come." Verse three tells that he will bring the offering to Jerusalem.

As he had done in Galatia, so Paul also requests of those in Corinth to have a collection all ready when he would come to take it to the poor saints in Jerusalem.  There's nothing in the text about a church service, but each person is to "lay by him in store." The first of the week was the best time for the people to set some money aside because later in the week it would be spent. That's true today as well. Paul requested this so that "there be no gatherings when I come." I Corinthians 16:2.

At this time the Christians are suffering hardship in Jerusalem and Paul is making his rounds to the churches taking up a collection for them. (We should be that thoughtful today.)

There's nothing in this text either about a change of God's Sabbath to Sunday.

Concerning worship, what was Paul's custom?

Here it is,

"And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three Sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures." Acts 17.2.

Jesus, as our example also had the custom of attending church on Saturday, the seventh day. (Luke 4:.16).

We don't know what is going on in this world because we have no clue as to who the Illuminati are and what they have in mind for you and me -  Lucifer Rising global power elite - You can't defeat the enemy if you don't know who it is. We simply cannot see the adversary because our senses have been blinded. In other words, most of us are programmed to pull the strings for those who enslave us. Solution - read if you have time, because at school they don't teach how to guard our freedom, neither do they teach who our enemy is. Read, read Lucifer Rising  by Philip Jones  you owe it  to your family and children. Stay close to God who made this nation great, not to the Angel of Light (Lucifer) who has lately gained the ascendancy, who claims to bring peace and love and all sorts of new technologies. The adherents of this movement believe that peace & love are constantly increasing but in reality we are getting deeper into wars and hatred every day. False hope abounds, it keeps us pacified, that's what the enemy wants. Rumors, lies and disinformation are being used to completely subdue us. We are being told that the cabal of tyrants presently dominating the world is losing on all fronts, and that soon they will be overcome and arrested, with the good guys (white dragon society, and other hidden, but powerful groups) taking over and making the world a better place. Not only that, but a perfect world is envisioned, where everybody has work to make a decent living, where everybody is happy. Again, these are lies and disinformation giving us false hope to keep us pacified and peaceful while the cabal of tyrants is busy putting on the finishing touches to make their oppressive one world government become reality, at which point most everybody will finally wake up, to realize that the dreaded New World Order has arrived.
