Who is responsible for all of the confusion regarding the Sabbath?

The Conversion of Constantine


Constantine By the time Constantine was established as the emperor of Rome in the early fourth century, there was a decided division in the church as a result of all these factors.

I think most of you know that Constantine was the first so-called Christian emperor of the Roman Empire. The story of his conversion has become very well known to students of ancient history. He was marching forth to fight the battle of Milvian Bridge when he had some kind of vision, and saw a flaming cross in the sky. Underneath the cross were the Latin words meaning “In this sign conquer.”

Constantine took this as an omen that he should be a Christian, and his army as well. He declared all his pagan soldiers to be Christians, and became very zealous to build up the power and prestige of the church.

Through his influence great blocks of pagans were taken into the Christian ranks. But, friends, they were still pagan at heart, and they brought in much of the paraphernalia of sun-worship to which they continued to be devoted. We mentioned in a previous broadcast about the adoption of Christmas and Easter into the church. At the same time, many other customs were Christianized and appropriated into the practice of the church as well.

Sun Worship
You see, at that time the cult of Mithraism or sun-worship was the official religion of the Roman Empire. It stood as the greatest competitor to the new Christian religion. It had its own organization, temples, priesthood, robes—everything. It also had an official worship day on which special homage was given to the sun.

That day was called “The Venerable Day of the Sun.” It was the first day of the week, and from it we get our name Sunday. When Constantine pressed his pagan hordes into the church they were observing the day of the sun for their adoration of the sun god. It was their special holy day. In order to make it more convenient for them to make the change to the new religion, Constantine accepted their day of worship, Sunday, instead of the Christian Sabbath which had been observed by Jesus and His disciples.

Remember that the way had been prepared for this already by the increasing anti-Jewish feelings against those who were accused of putting Jesus to death. Those feelings would naturally condition many Christians to swing away from something which was held religiously by the Jews. It is therefore easier to understand how the change was imposed on Christianity through a strong civil law issued by Constantine as the Emperor of Rome. The very wording of that law, by the way, can be found in any reliable encyclopedia. Those early Christians, feeling that the Jews should not be followed any more than necessary, were ready to swing away from the Sabbath which was kept by the Jews.

Who is responsible for all of the confusion regarding the Sabbath? 

In the Bible's prophetic book of Daniel, God lists many identifying characteristics of the little horn who would 'think to change' God's law. The Bible's identifying points clearly implicate the Roman Catholic church as this organization. Infact, you can even find the answer to this question by looking at the many statements made by the church and its leadership.

“The Catholic Church designated Sunday as the day for corporate worship and gets full credit – or blame – for the change.” This Rock, The Magazine of Catholic Apologetics and Evangelization, p.8, June 1997


         [Jesus He knew there would be those who would claim the power to change God’s will]

The Way Of Life These Days:

Our busy life can keep us from doing the will of our mighty God. Many daily task get in the way and keeping us more interested in making ends meet by working two or three jobs or going out to parties and events on Friday Sundown.

Today world revolve around everything open  24/7 and never closed time for our family and really no time for ourselves and mainly Yah.

But Yha, want us to set apart these daily task for 24 hours and put him in the picture and give him some our time like we do our working force.

Yha.... Just ask for one day while you can had six days to work and do as you please.

 Always Remember The Son Of Man Is Lord Of The Sabbath

The Son of Man is Lord also of the Sabbath Luke 6:5....Luke 6:5

Now Daniel he warned of just such a man. Describing a “little horn power” Daniel 7:8, Daniel says, “He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws” Daniel 7:25.

Paul also made something similar to Daniel “Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God, or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4, 7).

Paul warned that this blasphemy was already at work, and that it would come not from an outside influence, but from within the church (2 Thessalonians 2:7, Acts 20:28-30). Sure enough, not long after Paul’s day, apostasy appeared in the church.

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:
- Exodus 20:10

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.
- Exodus 20:11

Yah,Blessed the sabbath day and he hallowed it for the seven day of each week to be remember by his people.(for Yah he rested).We will give him honor and glory by doing the same as he done on his blessed sabbath day.

Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

-Exodus 31:16

Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.

What Make us better than "Yah" Not to his Law ...?

If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath,from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord,honourable; and shalf honour him,not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleseure,nor speaking thine own words:

Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

-Isaiah 58:13,14

And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

-Isaiah:66:23

Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.

- Isaiah 56:2

A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day. It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:

-Psalms 92:1

"When you do The Sabbath you start the sabbath sundown Friday until Saturday Sundown.you go into your sabbath with praises and happyness and lots of joy and great thanksgiving.

Freeing your mind for all outside matters like bills,jobs stress and tough family matters should be lay down for a while.

Adding your family into this blessing sabbath day by praying together,singing,outing and dinning.

No work around the house and outside do not matter at this point you should act like brand new,without a care in the world.

-Deuteronmy 5:14

And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

-Exodus 16:23

-Exodus 16:25

- Nehemiah 13:18

And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath: and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath day.

-Nehemiah 13:19

Then I testified against them, and said unto them, Why lodge ye about the wall? if ye do so again, I will lay hands on you. From that time forth came they no more on the sabbath.
-Nehemiah 13:21
