Written By : N Draumasei USA . I would like to answer Lawrence Narayan’s bible queries about the Sabbath directed to Apenisa Naigulevu (FS 16/6).
When and by whom was the Sabbath made? It’s in the Bible (Genesis 2:1-2). What is the reason for keeping the Sabbath day holy? It is the memorial of creation. It’s in the Bible (Exodus 20:11). For whom did Christ say the Sabbath was made? It’s in the Bible (Mark 2:27).
What does the fourth commandment require? It’s in the Bible (Exodus 20:8-10) What has God designated as a sign between Himself and His people? It’s in the Bible (Ezekiel 2:20)
The Sabbath is also a sign of sanctification. It’s in the Bible (Ezekiel 20:12). In the new heaven and earth, how often will the redeemed worship the Lord? It’s in the Bible (Isaiah 66:22-23).
While Christ was on earth, did He keep the Sabbath? It’s in the Bible (Luke 4:16). What day immediately precedes the first day of the week? It’s in the Bible (Matthew 28:1). After the crucifixion, what day was kept by the women who followed Jesus? It’s in the Bible (Luke 23:56). What day of the week is the Sabbath “according to the commandment”? It’s in the Bible (Exodus 20:10). What was Paul’s custom concerning the Sabbath? It’s in the Bible (Acts 17:2). What did Christ say about the law of God of which the Sabbath commandment is a part? It’s in the Bible (Matthew 5:17-19).
What kind of worship does the Savior call that which is not according to God’s commandments? It’s in the Bible (Matthew 15:9). What are the characteristics of God’s people at the end of time? It’s in the Bible (Revelation 14:12.) I hope that Narayan’s Sabbath queries have been answered now and forever and ever.
