70 Facts about the SABBATH

Scriptural proof that theh Holy Day of the Lord remains today and forever!



2. After working the first six days of the, the great God rested on the seventh day. (Genesis 2:1.3.)

3. This MARKED the day as THE LORDS day of rest, or Sabbath day, as Sabbath refers to the day to rest. Example: When someone is born on a certain day, that day then becomes his birthday. So when God rested upon the seventh day, that day became His rest or Sabbath day where creation of the earth’s birth was established; thus we are to REMEMBER HIS works. Take Note: The resurrection of Christ has nothing to do with the day of rest, the Sabbath day and the creation of earth. The Seventh day Sabbath is the day we are to rest, not on the day of His resurrection, which the world has been taught to remove the Sabbath and obey the antichrist pope’s day of rest which they say is Sunday. Therefore the seventh day must always be God's Sabbath day. Can you change your birthday from the day on which you were born to one on which you were not born? No. Neither can you change God's rest day to a day on which He did not rest. Hence the seventh day is still God's Sabbath day.

12. It was not just made for the Jewish people, for it was made 2,300 years before ever there was ever a Jew.
