ATTACK ON THE SABBATH


 

Is there an attack on the Sabbath?

The unending attacks on the calendar have a sinister foreboding about them. There is a much deeper attack, than what most people seem to realise. It should be obvious, what is happening.

 

Satan has always attacked Godís Sabbaths; and he always will. The mainstream churches all keep Sunday in letter, if not in deed. Some church leaders took a big percentage of Worldwide Church of God members back to the ways of this world, by getting rid of the Sabbath, or downgrading the Sabbath, to where itís just an idea, and not a requirement of God.

 

Those of us, who refused to do away with the Sabbath; are now facing a sinister underhanded plot to get rid of it; by questioning the calendar. It all looks perfectly innocent, as the scholars come up with one idea after another, to refute the calendar we use.

 

Donít be deceived: this is a massive ploy to change Godís Sabbaths [including the holy days]. This is another attack by Satan, to get rid of Godís Sabbaths. The scholars who are doing this may well be extremely academic; but they are not people of God.

 

Consider well the following statements.

 

Would the great God expect His people to remember the Sabbath days; if He was not able to remember them?

 

Would the great God, who put the sun and moon in the sky, for times and seasons: not be able to remember the Sabbath day?

 

Gen 1:14 Then God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;

 

Obedience to Godís laws, which include the Sabbaths, is a requirement of eternal life. God will not have His Sabbaths, impossible to find. Godís Sabbaths are a sign between God and His chosen people.

 

Eze 20:12 Moreover I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, that they might know that I am the LORD who sanctifies them.

 

Letís look into the future.

 

Dan 7:25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

 

A vile person will deceive members of Godís church into replacing Godís days with Easter keeping, which includes sun and idol worship. The words Ďdaily sacrificeí is better translated Ďcontinuity.í

 

Dan 8:11 He even exalted himself as high as the Prince of the host; and by him the daily sacrifices were taken away, and the place of His sanctuary was cast down.

 

Dan 11:30 For ships from Cyprus shall come against him; therefore he shall be grieved, and return in rage against the holy covenant, and do damage. "So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant.

 

The abominations of idol worship and weeping for Tammuz [lent] etc. are set up in the temple of God by the little horn and people who forsake the Holy Covenant. Ezekiel chapter 8 describes the abominations, which are set up in Godís temple. These people are church members, who forsake Godís Sabbaths, including the holy days.

 

Satan has always and will always attack the days that God gave His people. By getting rid of Godís Sabbaths Satan gets rid of the sign, God gave us; and also Godís overall plan of salvation for all mankind.

 

Godís people need to be aware of the wiles of our arch enemy. We must stay close to God, so Satan canít deceive us.
