For"Scripture Sunday":

Catholic Church Admits They Changed The Sabbath.

"I have repeatedly offered 1000 dollars to anyone who can proved to me from the bible alone that I am bound to keep Sunday Holy, there is NO SUCH LAW in the Bible."

Why is the Sabbath Commandment Not Repeated in the New Testament?

"Jesus Christ and the apostles lived and taught in a Sabbath-keeping society.

Some people believe that, since the Sabbath commandment isn't explicitly repeated in the New Testament, it is no longer binding. But is this true?

The Sabbath commandment did not have to be repeated in the New Testament, simply because the people to whom Jesus Christ and the apostles preached would never have imagined that it needed to be repeated!

The Scriptures that would later be called the Old Testament were their Bible, their guide for living (Romans:15:4). Paul described them as being "given by inspiration of God, and . . . profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy:3:16-17).

The Holy Scriptures clearly commanded them to keep the Sabbath, and the common people accepted that as God's inspired instruction.

Jesus Christ and the apostles lived and taught in a Sabbath-keeping society. Jesus' confrontations with the Pharisees were over how to observe the Sabbath, never over whether to observe it.

When the apostles took their message beyond the confines of Judea, Sabbath observance was well known in other parts of the Roman Empire. Notice, for example, what the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus, writing during the New Testament period, said: "The multitude of mankind itself have had a great inclination for a long time to follow our religious observances; for there is not any city of the Grecians, nor any of the barbarians, nor any nation whatsoever, whither our custom of resting on the seventh day hath not come . . . As God himself pervades all the world, so hath our law passed through all the world also" (Against Apion, Book 2, chap. 40).

The examples of Jesus and the apostles confirm that they believed in and obeyed all of the Ten Commandments. Throughout the book of Acts—written by Luke, a gentile —the Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths described in Leviticus 23 are mentioned quite routinely (Acts:13:14, 42, 44; 16:13; 17:2; 18:4, 21; 20:6, 16; 27:9). Whether to observe them simply wasn't a question."  From:


Names for Saturday in Many Languages Prove Which Day Is the True Sabbath

"Which day of the week is the biblical Sabbath? It is clear from the names for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, in many languages.

Many are confused over the issue, but such confusion is unnecessary. Not only is the answer plain from history and the Bible, it is also clear from the names for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, in many languages.

For example, the Spanish word for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, is sabado—the same word for "Sabbath." In fact, in more than 100 ancient and modern languages the seventh day of the week was named "Sabbath" or its equivalent. Following is a list of names for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, in 24 languages in which the root word Sabbath is still easily recognizable.

Such widespread use of forms of the word Sabbath for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, is clear evidence that speakers of these languages understood which day is the Sabbath.

Likewise, the fact that in no language do we see "Sabbath" similarly linked with Sunday, the first day of the week, is an obvious confirmation that this day never was considered the biblical Sabbath until later religious leaders tried to substitute Sunday for the true Sabbath day.

Some occurrences around here have rather knocked the stuffing out of me, and I am still not up to par.  Sometimes, I have to force myself to look at this computer.  One was the death of my ex-daughter-in-law, Becky from cancer.  Also, it is really getting me down that they still have not arrested the burglars who robbed my house while I was in the hospital.  They were picked up on another charge, and bonded out!  How slowly moves the long arm of the law. 

Jay has started on a wall in the old carport which is in front of the storeroom, where the Puddle Jumper used to be parked.  This will keep the driving rain out and give more storage or even a greenhouse, on that lot.

After I got wet and cold when shopping for building materials, I came down with a fever and my chest hurt.  It takes 2 weeks to get an appointment at the clinic, so I could have gone there and sat around for hours waiting to be seen, but I just didn't feel well enough.  I thought I had cracked a rib, but it was much better after some Aleve and bed rest.  So I have switched doctors.  This one says that if you call by 8.15 am, that you will be seen that day.  I hope so!

The dog that I rescued had her second trip to the vet to look at her infected ears, and Nala my foster cat went to have her rabies shot and microchip.  SPCA asked if I would pick up one of the cats from the Cat Habitat at Petco and take it to the vet too, as it wasn't feeling well.  The vet told me not to take it back to the habitat as it had something that could be contagious. I couldn't get hold of anyone to ask them where to take it, so I had to isolate it in my grooming room.  Kenya picked it up that night, and another foster mom helped me sanitize the grooming room the next day.   My other foster cat, Siamese Purrcy, went to the sanitized habitat to take it's place.  Now I have Giovanni, a beautiful, gentle, gray male older kitten to keep Nala company.  He is so sweet, and likes to hug your neck, ever so gently.  He is the litter brother of our favorite kitten, Silver Belle, who was here when I was in the hospital.

One Sabbath Jay went with me, and last Sabbath Ray went with me.  The Bible readings were: Psalms 104 and 111, Numbers 13-15, and the sermon was about The Word, and how it has been given to us as a message from God.  We had a good potluck and an enjoyable day.
