1 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

I  Sabbath Gifted

Exodus 20:8–11 (NKJV)

8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

The documentary evidence goes back to AD 74 and it is unanimous.  During the worst persecutions, people suspected of being Christian were asked ‘Dominicum servasti?” (Do you keep the Lord’s day?)  True believers answered”  “I am a Christian; I cannot omit it.”  What would believers answer today? —  Stuart Olyott
