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

“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

How Sad

It would be sad if God loved you and didn’t love me.

In a sense it would more sad if He loved me but didn’t love you.

If He didn’t love you I shouldn’t tell you about Him –

it would just make your life more miserable.

ALONE

The ship is crowded by the crowd,

The airplane to the last seat,

The bus is loaded down,

The train’s capacity is beat,

The car is jammed with people,

The cab can hold no more,

The wagon has no room,

And bikes aren’t made for four.

Be you one of many souls

On whatever conveyance

On a vehicle’s travel zone

In final, full reality

You / I travel life’s trail Alone.

Alone we were born to our fair mom

Alone we’re born to dad

Alone we’ll always feel

When happenings are so sad.

Alone we learn to ride the bike

Alone we learn to swim

Alone we clamber up the hill

And roll down its side, on a whim.

Alone we pass the last hard class

Alone we run the race

Alone we jump the creek’s broad span

Successful (or on our face).

Alone we apply for that job

Alone we learn to drive

Alone we gather living skills

By which we hope to thrive.

Alone we feel when we fail

Alone and taking the blame

Alone when even at the top;

Loneliness is part of fame.

Alone we get the news from home

Alone we read the letter

Alone we also read the Good Book

To guide us, make us better.

Alone we answer the call

Alone we serve our stay

Alone we leave in truck or plane

And feel alone as we pull away.

From what I see, we’ll die alone,

Alone I say – but let me quickly share

Through the above we were not alone.

God loves us; He was always there!

Moon Light

#ScriptureOrScience – #YOUchoose

Scripture – Mat 24.29 “…The sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light…” Words of Christ Himself!

Modern science emphasizes the sun – the moon, to them, is merely a reflector of sunlight and does not have a light of her own.

Which will YOU believe? Your belief may spell your eternal destiny!
