1LD Rev. 1:10. Those who say that there is no particular day for Christians to keep are wrong, because the Lord has a certain day for His people to keep holy. The first day of the week, Sunday, is not and cannot be the Lord's day, because the Lord Jesus Christ has never blessed, sanctified, nor appointed the first day of the week to be kept as a holy day.

2LD Matt. 12:8. The Lord's day must of necessity be the day of which Jesus Christ is Lord. As Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath day, the Sabbath day is bound to be the Lord's day.

3LD Ex. 20:10. As the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord, the seventh day, Saturday, is the Lord's holy day for us to keep. Since Sunday is the first day of the week, it cannot be the Sabbath or Lord's day because God says that the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord, His holy day.

4LD Ex. 20:11. The seventh day is the Lord's holy day for man to keep because of four facts: 1. The Lord made the world in six days. 2. On the seventh day, or last day of the week, He rested. 3. The Lord blessed the seventh day for man. 4. He sanctified, or set apart, the seventh day for man.

5LD Eph. 3:9. The Lord who did these four things was the Lord Christ, God the Son. Since Jesus Christ is the One who rested on the seventh day, and blessed and sanctified that day for man, the seventh day is Christ's day, the Lord's day, the Sabbath of Christ. Full acceptance of Christ includes the keeping of the Sabbath of Christ, this seventh day which He blessed and hallowed for man. Since Christ blessed and sanctified the seventh day for us, we cannot refuse to keep the seventh day, if we obey Christ our Saviour.

6LD Luke 4:16. When Christ lived here on earth, He kept the seventh day, Saturday, as God's holy day. If we follow Christ in the matter of the day we keep, then we will keep the seventh day.

7LD Heb. 13:8. Christ is the same today. So if He were here on earth now as we are, He would keep this same seventh day which He kept when He was here 1900 years ago.

8LD Gen. 2:1-3. Christ the Creator blessed and set apart the seventh day as a holy day at the very beginning, when He made the world for man. Hence the keeping holy of the seventh day is not some ordinance that was instituted by Moses and later abolished by Christ.

9LD Mark 2;27. The Sabbath was not intended for the Jews only, but for all, just the same as the other nine precepts of the Ten Commandments.

10LD Mark 16:1,2. The Sabbath was past when the women came to the tomb early in the morning on the first day of the week, on the morning that Christ arose.

11LD Mark 15:42-44. Jesus was crucified the day before the Sabbath.

12LD Luke 23:54-56; 24:1. The Sabbath according to God's commandment came in between the crucifixion on Friday and the resurrection on Sunday. So the fourth commandment of the Ten Commandments requires us to keep the seventh day, or Saturday, which comes in between Friday and Sunday. The seventh-day Sabbath of the fourth commandment was not abolished at the cross, because in Luke 23:56 this seventh-day Sabbath commandment is spoken of as being binding on the day after Jesus was crucified.

13LD Eze. 20:12. The Sabbath was given to be a twofold sign of Jesus Christ as Creator and Redeemer. The Sabbath is a sign that Christ made this world in six days (Ex. 31:16,17), and by keeping it, we show by our works that we accept Christ as the Creator of this world in six days. The Sabbath is also a sign of the power of Christ to save us from sin, and sanctify us. Eze. 20:12.

14LD Isa. 66:22,23. The seventh-day Sabbath will be kept forever in the new earth. The seventh day, God's sanctified day, reaches all the way from Eden lost to Eden restored, and hence there is no room nor need for any different rest day.
