Sabbath is Saturday. The seventh day of the week. It is a day we shouldn't do any work but only those that please God. It was instituted from the beginning of time after creation. It is the only day that God blessed and hallowed. Jesus went to the synagogue every Sabbath while he was here. Jesus also said he didn't come to destroy the law but to fulfil it. If Christ went to the synagogue every Sabbath and we are Christians who should follow his footsteps, why do we all go to church on a Sunday? God doesn't change neither does any of his laws. He is the same today, tomorrow and forever more. Let us awake and start keeping the true Sabbath - Saturday.

My understanding of it, is that "true Sabbath" = eternal rest. That is to say spending your eternity with God is your real Sabbath Day. God rested on the "7th day" but the 7th day is actually not a "day", it is eternity
Where did you get this understanding from? This isn't true. The Sabbath is the literal seventh day one. Don't confuse it with eternity.

Happy Sunday to all Nairalanders.

Congratulations to us all. By God's special grace, we're seeing the last Sunday in July despite all the evil happenings all over. To God be the glory!

Sabbath is biblical and observed by Jews from sun down on Friday till sundown on Saturday.

It was ordained by God as the day in which He rested after creating the heaven and earth in six days.

Sabbath was really made by God for mankind because God

- Does not sleep or slumber He doesn't get tired like we do. He's a Spiritual supernatural being. We are flesh and we get tired, hence we do need rest.
- God wants a day to have us to Himself without the distractions that trading or other activities bring into worship.
- Every living thing God made needs to rest to avoid breaking down.
- There is a place of rest in God spiritually that we need to enter for our own peace of mind. It is possible to lay down and try to sleep but if your spirit/ mind is not at rest ( busy or worried) you won't sleep!

Do you observe Sabbath?
Which day do you observe yours? (Friday Saturday or Sunday)
Why do you worship or rest on that particular day of the week?
Have churches been opened in your State?

Do have a wonderful Sunday! grin
Well, that's your old testament definition of Sabbath. Jesus Christ has already redefined Sabbath

Re: What Is Your Understanding Of Sabbath? by Clakyvip: 9:35am On Jul 26
Saturday is the sabbath day, Saturday is the 7th day of the week as confirmed by our calendars.
Gen 2:1-3
Exodus 20:11
The Apostles never rested on Sunday but on Saturday. God himself called the Sunday a working day, Ezekiel 46:1
God bless and hallowed the sabbath which is Saturday but never blessed Sunday.
This sabbath was changed to Sunday by a Roman Emperor to worship the Sun. Sunday is never the sabbath day.

How did Jesus redefined the Sabbath ?
Lk6:1-5

6 And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.

2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?

3 And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;

4 How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?

5 And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath


Everyday is Sabbath


Matthew 12:10-13
And behold, there was a man who had a withered hand. And they asked Him, saying, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?"—that they might accuse Him. Then He said to them, "What man is there among you who has one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not lay hold of it and lift it out? Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath." Then He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And he stretched it out, and it was restored as whole as the other.

Sabbath Day is Evidence of your Authority and Right for a Day off of the 7 Days in a Week TO REST AND COMMUNE WITH YOURSELF.

Some select Sundays. Some select Friday. Like a Cult The Seven Day Adventists select Saturday. If you like you can select Wednesday or no day at all and collapse like Atheists.

Which Roman Emperor. Read your bible very well. Jesus Christ fulfilled the law of sabbath. Acts 20:7, that's the first reference to worship on a Sunday

After working throughout the week, you rest on Sabbath Day
Re: What Is Your Understanding Of Sabbath? by FrLukas(m): 9:46am On Jul 26
It's just a way to help people rest after a work-filled week.

I liken it to the Yorubas who attach "omens" to some actions but in actual fact are just trying to pass off a message of right living to people.

Surely we don't think that God needed to rest after creating stuff for 6days, do we?

Re: What Is Your Understanding Of Sabbath? by emmnprince(m): 9:50am On Jul 26
Sabbath day was a resting period. We define our resting periods by ourselves by not engaging in certain tasks/works, . . . Some don't go to their workplace, rest at home, visit family members or friends, or go to recreational centres to relax the body! It depend on the individual.

No law today, as that of the Sabbath, compelled us to follow a strict code.
