The Sabbath - Everything You Ever Wanted To Know
Sixty Bible Facts Concerning the Seventh Day
WHY keep the Sabbath day? What is the object of the Sabbath? Who made it? When was it made, and for whom? Which day is the true Sabbath? Many keep the first day of the week, or Sunday. What Bible authority have they for this? Some keep the seventh day, or Saturday. What Scripture have they for that? Here are the facts about both days, as plainly stated in the Word of God:
After working the first six days of the week in creating this earth,
the great God rested on the seventh day. (Genesis 2:1-3.)
Forty Bible Facts Concerning the First Day of the Week
The very first thing recorded in the Bible is work done on Sunday,
the first day of the week. (Genesis 1:1-5.) This was done by the
Creator Himself. If God made the earth on Sunday, can it be wicked
for us to work on Sunday?
Here are one hundred plain Bible facts upon this question, showing conclusively that the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord in both the Old and New Testament. *
