A Sabbath of rest is one of God's greatest gift to mankind. Most Christians agree that the observance of the Sabbath is essential part of the worship of God. Much was involved in the making of the Sabbath.

WHO MADE THE SABBATH?
It was Jesus Christ, Read John 1:1-3, 10, 14; "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."

It is evident according to Hebrews 1:1, 2 that God created the world through Christ. Since Christ was the active agent. he made the SABBATH.

I endorse and applaud your comments Ilaisane Ami Petero.

For me, the Sabbath brings me a special spirit of oneness with Jesus Christ as I remember Him and His great and infinite atoning sacrifice that mankind may live in peace and joy with Him after our mortal experience.

As members of my family and I renew our dedication to Jesus Christ each Sabbath day, we find renewed peace, joy, more enthusiasm to serve Him anyway we can, and become better people.

Thank you for posting this topic ENDEAVOUR.
Thank you Dan to God be the Glory....Praise His authority and let us honor His will.

When was the Sabbath made?

At the time of creation. Read Genesis 2:1-3; "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2 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.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made."


This day was really special as we can see what God did to it was completely different from the other 6 days...God ended his work and He rested, He Blessed and He Sanctified the 7th day....

Exodus 20:8-11; "8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it."


The only commandment we are reminded to remember.
When did the days of creation week begin and end?

Genesis 1: 5, 8, 13; "And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day."

Each day of the creation week began at sunset, with the dark part since darkness was here first, and ended with the following sunset. Therefore the seventh-day Sabbath is to be observed form sunset to sunset.
Evidently all days were reckoned from sunset to sunset.
How was the SABBATH made?

Genesis 2:1-3; "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2 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.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made."

The SABBATH day was there from creation time, so it is not for the Jews, it is there for mankind to experience the Lords rest as we know he RESTED on the day, receive the LORDS blessings as we know he BLESSED the day and most of all be under His SANCTIFICATION as we know he SANCTIFIED the day.
Of what was the SABBATH made?

Genesis 2:2,3; "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.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made."
HEBREWS-CHAPTER 4,VERSES1-13......

A SABBATH-REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD
.
HEB,4,1.THEREFORE ,SINCE THE PROMISE OF ENTERING HIS REST STILL STANDS,LET US BE CAREFUL THAT NONE OF YOU BE FOUND TO HAVE FALLEN SHORT OF IT.2,FOR WE ALSO HAVE
HAD THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO US,JUST AS THEY DID;BUT THE MESSAGE THEY HEARD WAS OF NO VALUE TO THEM,BECAUSE THOSE WHO HEARD DID NOT COMBINE IT WITH FAITH.3,NOW WE WHO HAVE BELIEVED ENTER THAT REST,JUST AS GOD HAS SAID,

''SO I DECLARE ON OATH IN MY ANGER,'THEY SHALL NEVER ENTER MY REST.' ''

AND YET HIS WORK HAS BEEN FINISHED SINCE THE CREATION OF THE WORLD.4,FOR SOME
WHERE HE HAS SPOKEN ABOUT THE SEVENTH DAY IN THESE WORDS:''AND ON THE SEVENTH DAY GOD RESTED FROM ALL HIS WORK''.5,AND AGAIN IN THE PASSAGE ABOVE HE SAYS,''THEY SHALL NEVER ENTER MY REST.''6,IT STILL REMAINS THAT SOME WILL ENTER THAT REST,AND THOSE WHO FORMERLY HAD THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM DID NOT GO IN BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE.7,THEREFORE GOD AGAIN SET A CERTAIN DAY,CALLING
IT TODAY,WHEN A LONG TIME LATER HE SPOKE THROUGH DAVID,AS WAS SAID BEFORE:

''TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE,DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS,''

8,FOR IF JOSHUA HAD GIVEN THEM REST,GOD WOULD NOT HAVESPOKEN LATER ABOUT ANOTHER DAY.9,THERE REMAINS THEN,A SABBATH -REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD; 10,FOR ANYONE WHO ENTERS GOD'S REST ALSO RESTS FROM HIS OWN WORK,JUST AS GOD DID FROM HIS.11,LET US,THEREFORE ,MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO ENTER THAT REST,SO THAT NO ONE WILL FALL BY FOLLOWING THEIR EXAMPLE OF DISOBEDIENCE,

12.FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS LIVING AND ACTIVE.SHARPER THAN ANY DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD,IT PENETRATES EVEN TO DIVIDING SOUL AND SPIRIT,JOINTS AND MARROW;IT JUDGES THE THOUGHTS AND ATTITUDES OF THE HEART.

Sabbath Truth Introduction

After years of attending Church and believing Sunday was the Sabbath, I was astounded to find out I had the wrong day and that it was God’s desire for me to keep the Sabbath and on the day He blessed and sanctified. This grieved me greatly. Not only that but as I researched this further I found it had a link with Bible prophecy and the Beast that the Little Horn power arose from described in Daniel 7 and Revelation 13. I was both astonished and angry to find out how the Sabbath got changed to Sunday and that the Bible even tells us that this antichrist power would change God’s laws and spread false prophecy. Like many, I had also been taught it was acceptable to keep any day and anything else was legalism or we are under grace now not law. I never could understand the reasoning of those who taught or thought that. I considered the Commandments and contemplated whether God would really be pleased with me worshiping idols or having other God’s before Him. I could only conclude that it made no sense. Surely God would not allow lying, stealing, murder or blasphemy. I know Jesus once summed up the last six Commandments as to love your neighbour as yourself, but I am certain he could not have meant love your neighbour as in adultery.

As I searched for truth, I asked why it was legalism to keep God’s Commandments some said, “It’s not legalism to keep the other nine, its just legalism to keep the fourth Commandment.” This never made any sense to me either. I thought about the many scriptures where Jesus points out that if we love Him we will keep His Commandments. These are just some of the scriptures I considered; 1 John 2:4 “He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” John 15:10 “If ye keep my Commandments, ye shall abide in my love even as I have kept my Father’s Commandments, and abide in his love.” 1 John 5:3 “For this is the love of God, that we keep his Commandments: and his Commandments are not grievous.” John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my Commandments.” No matter how hard I searched, I could never find a legitimate exception excluding the fourth. Something was screaming out inside me that something was very wrong but I thought, “How could so many Churches have it wrong?” There must be something I am missing. Bewildered, I continued to keep Sunday with no clear answers to what the truth really was.

One scripture I found and did not understand was Revelation 12:17 which says, “And the dragon (Satan) was wroth with the woman (The Church), and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the Commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” I found through studying Bible prophecy, this refers to a Church God would raise up after the dark ages to restore His Church and Sabbath as it was in the book of Acts before Satan slowly changed it by the death and torture of millions over the centuries. For reasons now obvious, Satan would hate and make war with this Church and try to keep people from it. This now left me with the question of which Church keeps all God’s Commandments? I was surprised to find more than 500 denominations but none that we attended. How sad I now felt. God loves me so much that He sent His only son to die for me and with His love being totally unconditional there was no way in the world I was going to look for excuses not to spend this time with God because it might cause some inconvenience to my lifestyle. We should desire to return the same unconditional love and not grieve God by calling spending a day with Him legalism. If we truly love God how could we possibly do that? Besides the next page that shows how the seventh day Sabbath has been kept from creation to eternity, the pages that follow are the result of research on every excuse we have heard regarding the Sabbath. The real eye opener was how it got changed to Sunday. I encourage you to read on and find out the truth about what many call Histories Greatest Hoax.

If you have a reasonably fast internet connection and would like to watch an online Prophecy Seminar to find out who the little horn of Daniel 7 and the Beast of Revelation 13 is that changed the Sabbath to Sunday, you will find Revelation Reveals the Antichrist very enlightening. You may want to start about 17.5 minutes in to bypass singing items etc. You can also watch Histories Greatest Hoax on the truth about the Sabbath and ideally should be watched first. To watch more from this and other Prophecy Seminars you will find the menus here. Be prepared to discover many mind blowing lost Bible truths of which most used to be known by ALL the early Churches. How did the truth about Antichrist become lost by most?
