Most churches keep the Sunday service, but WMSCOG keeps the Sabbath on Saturday. Why does WMSCOG keep the Sabbath on Saturday? Let’s find out through the Bible. The Sabbath is God’s commandment established for us to give us eternal blessings.

Gen 2:1-3 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

Genesis 1 begins with God’s creation work. For six days, God created the heavens and the earth and all things. And God rested on the seventh day. So we call the seventh day the Sabbath. The word Sabbath means rest. The name stems from the fact that God rested on the seventh day after finishing the creation work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy as well. It means that we are blessed and made holy by keeping the Sabbath. We must keep the Sabbath on the seventh day as God’s people.

So God commanded us to keep the Sabbath.

Ex 20:8-11 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Have you ever heard about the Ten Commandments? The fourth commandment of them is to remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Just as God rested on the seventh day after finishing God’s creation work for six days, we must keep the Sabbath on the seventh day as God’s people. We don’t remember 365 days a year, but we remember special days every year. Likewise, we have to remember the Sabbath every week by keeping it holy.

Then what day of the week is the Sabbath, the seventh day? First, let’s think with the common sense. What day of the week is the first day on a calendar? It’s Sunday. What about the seventh day of the week? It’s Saturday. We can understand that the seventh day of the week is Saturday through a calendar. Let’s find out through the dictionary. When you find Sunday in the dictionary, it says that it’s the first day of the week. And the dictionary defines Saturday as the seventh day of the week. The dictionary tells us that the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week is Saturday either.

Let’s think with the Bible.

Mk 16:9 When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons.

To understand the Sabbath day through the Bible, we have to find out Jesus’ resurrection day first. What day of the week Jesus was resurrected? Jesus was resurrected on Sunday. That’s why TEV Bible says that Jesus rose from death early on Sunday. NIV Bible says that Jesus rose on the first day of the week. What does it mean? It means that the first day of the week is Sunday. Then what day of the week is the Sabbath? The fact that the Bible says the first day of the week is Sunday means that the seventh day of the week is Saturday. Every evidence tells us that the blessed and holy Sabbath is Saturday. What day of the week must we worship God? We must keep the Sabbath on Saturday, the seventh day. That’s why WMSCOG keeps the Sabbath on Saturday whereas most churches keep the Sunday service.

Even though the Bible tells us that we must keep the Sabbath on Saturday, why do most churches keep the Sunday service? Let’s think with the teaching of Jesus through the Bible.

Jn 8:47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”

Jesus said those who belong to God listen to what God says. And the reason people don’t listen is that they do not belong to God. As those who belong to God, what day of the week must we keep the Sabbath? We must keep the Sabbath on Saturday. Keeping the Sabbath on Saturday is evidence that we belong to God.

Mt 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

Jesus said only those who do the will of God will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. What is the will of God then? God rested on the seventh day of the week from the beginning, and He blessed and made it holy. God commanded us to remember the Sabbath by keeping it holy. It’s God’s absolute will. Let’s keep the Sabbath on Saturday, the seventh day of the week, in WMSCOG and enter the Kingdom of heaven.

    Let's be honest.
    Worshiping on Sunday is not true.


    • 2022-09-15 00:22

      Right! Where is the verse of Sunday Worship in the Bible? We cannot find any. Because there is no verse about Sunday Worship. Let's be honest and have a brave and pure mindset in front of God. God know everything. We can never change God's Laws and Commands for us. We need to just follow God'
      s order. That's the only way to eternal kingdom of heaven. God will tell you, when you obey and follow them well, 'YOU DID A GOOD JOB!'
