The Seventh Day is the Sabbath day of Rest

7th Day


Do you think God got sweaty and tired from a weeklong work of Creation? I don’t think so. Then what did He mean when He said:

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. Genesis 2:2

The Lord is our advocate and Satan is our adversary. As such I believe that the Lord was making an official statement like a lawyer makes in a court. “I rest my case.” Creation is His first case. Redemption is His second case. On the cross He said; “it is finished.”

Every human that has ever lived or is alive now or who will ever live is to judge. You decide first did Jesus create everything and everybody or did it just happen by random chance? If you say random chance where did the particles of matter come from? If you believe that Jesus did it then you owe allegiance to Him.

Romans chapter one from 18-32 is the digression of the person that continues to reject the truth of the creator. When you read the passage you see how the person continues on a path downward.

The concept of a 7 day week does not appear anywhere except in scripture. Governments have tried to lengthen it to a 10 day week to increase productivity but accomplished just the opposite. Man needs one day of rest a week.

God designed that one day for us to spend the day with Him. It should be used to:

  • Fellowship with believers
  • Spend a special time in prayer
  • Do a personal Bible study
  • Keep it holy

“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:” Colossians 2:16

Because of the resurrection on Sunday the day of meeting together changed to Sunday. The above verse is the only reference after the book of Acts. Some want to argue that the Sabbath has never been changed. I agree. Saturday is the last day of the week, the seventh day.

“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.” I Corinthians 16:2

If your church meets on Saturday then you should make another trip on Sunday to give your tithes and offerings.

Many believe that God created but miss out on what is most important; that is that God’s Son is the saviour.

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

We know from Genesis 1:26 that all of the God head had a part in creating mankind but now we come to Jesus to obtain eternal life.

Have you concluded that creation requires a designer/creator? Have you received Jesus as saviour?
