Right Day V

What is the right day (con’t) 2. Continues in Acts:

Act 20.7 …upon the first day of the week when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them…

  1. Accelerates (if anything) in Paul’s letter to Corinth

1Co 16.2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him…

Sounds like Paul knew the Corinthians believers would be assembled on that day.

  1. The transition is complete.

Rev 1.10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet (emphasis mine)

Right Day IV

What is the right day (con’t) This starts in the Gospels:

Mat 28.1 In the end of the sabbath as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and…

Mar 16.9 Now when Jesus was risen early first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene…

Luk 24.1 Now upon first day of the week very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulcher…

Joh 20.1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher…

Joh 20.19 …being first day of the week when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews…   (emphasis mine)

Right Day III

What is the right day (con’t)

  1. Christians are not Jews but followers of Jesus Christ. A new day of worship is here – commemorating our Lord’s resurrection. God could easily have had the Son come Alive again on the old sabbath day – He did not. The sabbath is past – the Lord’s Day is come!

Right Day II

What is the right day (con’t)

  1. The Jews without question, were to keep the Sabbath – it was THEIR special day;

Exo 31.16…the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. (emphasis mine)

Eze 20.12…I gave them [Israel] my sabbaths to be a sign between me & them that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them. (emphasis mine)

Right Day

What’s the right day for Bible believers worship?

As Christians face the closing of the age there’ll be winds blowing in who-knows-how-many directions. Now is the time (before they kick up too much) to settle as many questions as you, your family, and church possibly can.

 

Word

“With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful;

with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;

“With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and

with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.”

Psa 18.25-26

Bonhoeffer Quote

“To believe the promise of Jesus that His followers shall possess the earth, and

at the same time to face our enemies unarmed and defenseless, preferring to incur

injustice rather than to do wrong ourselves, is indeed the narrow way.”

– Dietrich Bonhoeffer, from his classic Cost of Discipleship
