10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, 11 saying, “Write on a scroll what you see, and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.
The apostle John was Jewish, and it is not sure if he called himself a Christian, but he called himself bondservant by the Lord like so many others in the Holy Bible. As a Jew, he would have kept up with days of the week to remember which day was the Lord’s Day, and the Holy Bible declares that day is the seventh day. So why would not the Lord appear to John and tell him to write a message to the church? John was already dwelling with God as the holy word commanded him to do.
Leviticus 23:3 ‘For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a Sabbath of complete rest, a holy convocation. You shall not do any work; it is a Sabbath to the Lord in all your dwellings.
The seventh day’s Sabbath was still the Lord’s Day to John, and it should also be for you and I. Carnal minded people read the book of Revelation and can see 666 as the mark of the beast but miss that the seventh-day Sabbath is a sign between God and His people. Many people see that scripture that says a person cannot buy or sell without the beast’s mark, but it is also about worship. A child of God does not mind surrendering a day off from labor to give to the Lord and worship Him. Many Christians will allow their employer to decide when they will work. For example, my stepfather Richie loves the Lord, but he will skip church and go to work on Sunday if he is scheduled to work on Sunday. He will even work seven days a week if he is scheduled to do so, but he wears himself out doing so. In a conversation I had with Ritchie, he said Jesus is the Sabbath; therefore, a Christian is at rest every day. The Sabbath is more than resting than dwelling with the Lord and in His creation. A holy convocation is the same as a church congregation. Ask yourself, brothers and sisters, is your place of employment a holy church? If every day is the sabbath day of rest, there are many Christian relationships with the Lord, experiencing social distances. It is because they worship how they see fit in their own eyes. The Lord never changes the Sabbath day, nor does the holy scriptures say He did. The seventh day’s Sabbath wasn’t made holy only for the Jews; when it was made holy in Genesis 2:2, the Hebrew nation did not exist, only Adam and Eve. If there is a new day to remember creation in the New Testament, it is not written, nor was it abolished. Brothers and sisters, if the holy Sabbath was moved to another day or if it was abolished, why do scripture prophetic words say it will be remembered in the new heaven and new earth? Ask your God when you go to His Holy Word and in prayer. God bless you all; the Lord of the Sabbath loves you, and so do I. His bondservant, Samuel Jerry Head.
Isaiah 66:22 “For just as the new heavens and the new earth, Which I make, will endure before Me,” declares the Lord, “So will your descendants and your name endure. 23 And it shall be from new moon to new moon And from Sabbath to Sabbath, all mankind will come to bow down before Me,” says the Lord.
Hebrews 4:9 Consequently, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. 11 Therefore let’s make every effort to enter that rest so that no one will fall by following the same example of disobedience.
