Rethinking The Sabbath

Rethinking The Sabbath

I have been studying the laws of God, and I have been considering what I as well as other followers of Yahweh (GOD) have been taught all my life. What I have found is both shocking and disturbing. It also has some far reaching implications.

This has been right in front of my, nose so to speak, and hidden from me in plain sight. Yet, it amazes me how so many of our seminary trained pastors are not teaching there congregations the truth instead of promoting this fraud. Could it be that they know the truth, but are so full of pride that they ca not bring themselves to admit they have been teaching lies? Could they be afraid of loosing members along with their tithe? Maybe they have been told this lie so often that it has become reality. Whatever the case, somebody needs to take a stand and tell the truth. That someone may as well be me.

I expect some flak from this, but it only means the truth has upset someone. I invite you to send this page to your friends and family and help stop this fraud, this great deception.

 “You shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish out from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Most High which I command you” (Deut 4:2). Remember this scripture as we proceed. 

Why did I use “Rethinking The Sabbath” as the title for this article? It is because the church and indeed the world has been bamboozled. Someone pulled the wool over our eyes - shot us a curve and we as a nation have not taken the time to question what we have been taught. We have not searched the torah (first five books of the bible) for the truth. We have become satisfied and content with what we have been told. But its time to break out now. It is time to wake up, the day is far spent, “wake up my people” say’s Yah.

Now if you will bear with me, I will attempt to show you how we have been led on a snip hunt. First thing first, the word Sabbath means rest. The Sabbath Day or day of rest was established by The Most High after he had finished the creation of the heavens and the earth, which he completed in six days and on the seventh day he rested from all his work.

Gen. 2:3 “and The Most High blessed the seventh day and sanctified it (made it holy).

Ex.20:8 The Most High commanded all Israel saying, “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy”, read also verse nine through eleven.

According to The Most High, the Sabbath is observed on the seventh day of the week. Remember also that The Most High does not count time the way we do. A day is counted from evening till evening or sundown to sundown instead of midnight to midnight.

Now, the only day of the week that was named by Yah was the Sabbath. The other days he called them by number. Sunday through Saturday are named after pagan gods which Yah has nothing to do with. Most people today ignorantly think the Sabbath was changed by Yahshua (Jesus) to the first day of the week (Sunday). Therein lies our problem.

Yah set the Sabbath aside for holy use, even for when he returns to set up his kingdom on earth and yet we say Yahshua changed it. But wait, there is another side to this change. It is this. Our pastors are also teaching that the reason we should worship on the first day of the week is because Yahshua came out of the tomb on this day. Deception, deception,  deception! Lets explore some facts and decide if we have been bushwhacked.

By the way, in order for you to fully grasp my argument, you will have to see my next article, coming soon on CentricMag.com. I pray that the spirit of Yah will guide you to except the truth.

The apostles did not make any change from the Sabbath to the first day. It was instituted after the death of the apostles, a commandment of men and not Yah.

Fact 1: “unquestionably the first law, ether ecclesiastical or civil, by which the sabbatical observance of Sunday is known to have been ordained is the sabbatical edict of Constantine, A.D. 321. “Chambers” Encyclopedia, Article “Sunday.” 

Here is the first Sunday Law in history enacted by Constantine who reigned from 306-331.

Constantine was a sun worshiper and this law was never meant to favor followers of Yahshua.

 “ On the Venerable Day of the Sun (sacred day of the Sun) let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country, however, persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits; because it often happens that another day is not so suitable for grain-sowing or for vine-planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost--- Given the 7th day of March, (AD 321), Crispus and Constantine being consuls each of them for the second time.”

The First Sunday Law Of Constantine 1,  Phillip Schoff “History of the Christian Church, “Vol.3, p.380. Here is the first Sunday Law decree of a Christian council Given 16 years later.

“Christians shall not Judaize and be idle on Saturday, (the Sabbath) but shall work on that day; (Yah said “you shall do no work”. ) but the Lord’s day they shall especially honor, and as being Christians, shall if possible, do no work on that day. If, however, they are found Judaizing, they shall be shut out (excommunicated) from Christ.” Council of Laodicea, AD 337, Canon 29, “ A History of the Councils of the Church, Vol. 2, p. 316.

This has been my first installment of as many as it may take to bring to light this great deception. I pray you will take the time to follow this article and do your own research.

Are you truly following Yahshua, or are you following the doctrine of man?
