The Seventh Day

The Sabbath (the seventh day) was given at creation. There was not one Jew then; so it is not only for the Jews. There was only Adam and Eve—a man and a woman. Together, they represented all of humanity.

Of all the seven days of creation week, God only blessed and sanctified (set aside for holy use) the seventh day. The Sabbath, therefore, is a memorial of creation. Jesus said that He is Lord of the Sabbath. For this reason, it is also called the Lord’s day.

And it bears the signature of God—the seal of the King.

The Sabbath is the seal of God by which we who are His are authenticated. Those who truly honor the Sabbath are identified as His sanctified and sealed ones through the power of the Holy Spirit. (Read Ezekiel 20:12, 20; Ephesians 1:13; and 4:30.) The Sabbath is Who God is—love. The Sabbath is the love of God that bears His character in all the Commandments of God. God wants to perfect His character in us.

Obedience equals God’s Love. For it was God Himself, who said that if you love Him, you would keep His commandments.

Remember, therefore, the Sabbath day to keep it holy.
