Come Join Us In Remembering What The World Has Forgotten.....  The Seventh Day Sabbath!

From SON to Sun
From Three “3” Days to ONE “1”???

When changes come, they’re not always progressive.  In our study now we look at the change from the Sabbath of the Old Testament “OT” Scriptures including the Ten “10” Commandments, to the day of His Resurrection as brought forward in its formative years by the Catholic Church.

Catholic, with a small ‘c’ means “broadminded, as in belief or tastes, liberal, Universal.  With a capital ‘C,’ it becomes ‘broad-minded, Universal.

Note: [PLEASE CHECK ALL Scriptures given!]

In the first 3 centuries, beginning with the death of Christ, came overwhelming persecution of professing Christians, both Jews and Gentiles!  And that by both Jews and Rome, as also, of the Jews by the Romans, simply because of their race.  

Let’s take a look.  A primary key to the change from Saturday Sabbath to Sunday as the NEW day of worship, is the time of Christ’s Resurrection, declared by both 
Catholic and Protestant, to be early Sunday Morning.  Thus voiding Christ’s own statement concerning the time He would be in the Grave. 

To begin our study we quote from Christ Himself, with verifying Scriptures to uphold it!

There are Seven References in St. Matthew: Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.  But he answered and said unto them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall be no sign given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas (Jonah),” For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the Heart of the earth, St. Matthew 12:38-40.

Read also; St. Matthew 16:21; 17:22-23; 20:17-19; 26:60-61; 27:40; 27:62-63.

There are five references in St. Mark: And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again, St. Mark 8:31. 

Read also, Mark 9:31; 10:33-34; 14:57-58; 15:28-30.

There are five References in St. Luke: The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and the chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day, St. Luke 9:22. 

Read also; Luke 18:31-33; 24:7; 24:21; 24:45-46

There are two References in St. John: Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up, St. John 2:19.

Also read: St. John 2:20-21

There is one reference in Acts: And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they slew and hanged on a tree: Him hath God raised up the third day, and showed him openly, Acts 10:39-40.

There is one Reference in 1st Corinthians: For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, 1st Corinthians 15:3-4.

And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.

Seven times in Matthew alone this ‘three days and three nights” truth is verified, for a total of 21 times in the New Testament!  Yet over 95% of ALL Pastors and Evangelists Deny it, cutting it back to “A DAY AND A HALF IN THE TOMB; WHY? To “Justify” their teachings of a Friday afternoon DEATH and BURIAL, and an EASTER Sunday morning Resurrection! How? By claiming that the Jews counted ANY Part of a day as equaling a Complete one! 

Thus, in their minds VOIDING Christ’s own words!

What about Jesus’ words in St. John 17:17 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” “Again; He that loveth me not, keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s who sent me, John 14:24.

In George M. Lamsa’s ‘HOLY BIBLE FROM THE ANCIENT EASTERN TEXT,’ he even labels the day prior to that ANNUAL “High Day Sabbath” (THE 15TH, REGARDLESS OF WHICH DAY OF THE WEEK IT FELL ON) as recorded in St. John 19:30-31.  HE CALLS IT Friday; we read; verse 30, and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. Verse 31, Now since it was Friday the Jews said, Let not these bodies remain on their crosses because the Sabbath is dawning; for that Sabbath was a Great Sabbath. So they besought Pilate to have the legs of those who were crucified broken, and to have the bodies lowered down, St. John 19:30-31.

Let’s reread St. Matthew 28:1-2, from the King James Version.   In the end of the Sabbath as it began to dawn toward “draw near” the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.  And behold, there was or “had been” a great earthquake; for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat upon it. 

His words to the two Mary’s were; “Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.  He is not here; for he is risen, as he said,” verses 5 through 7. “Come see the place where he lay,” go quickly and tell his disciples that He is risen from the dead.”

SO Late Sabbath afternoon they saw an empty tomb! But wait, let’s jump to verse 9; And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them.

IF laid in the tomb LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON, (as commonly taught) and HIS RESURRECTION IS Indeed; “In the end of the Sabbath” (before sundown), in ACCORDANCE WITH THE TIME GIVEN IN St. Matthew 28:1-2, (the KJV, the ASV and some other translations) then, Christ was entombed just 24 hours or slightly less!  If resurrected Sunday Morning then, just 36 hours!

Let’s let Jesus himself say how important His words are, OK?

“He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in that last day.  For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, He gave me a commandment, what I should speak.  And I know that His Commandment is Life Everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak, St. John 12:48-50.

Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou hast sent me, St. John 17:7-8.

Dare we say that Both Father and Son were mistaken, or lying? For the words given in St. Matthew 12:39-40 were Given by FATHER, to be spoken by His SON; according to the above quoted scriptures!!

MUDDY WATERS!  Did Mary Magdalene make a single trip to the sepulcher or TRIPS--PLURAL?  Check the number, position and location of the angels as recorded in the each of the four “4” gospels.

St. Matthew 28:2, one angel, sitting Outside on the stone that had sealed the tomb.  He sends both Mary’s to tell of Christ’s resurrection!  Verses 8-10, Both of them meet Jesus on their trip into town.

St. Mark 16:1-7, Early Sunday morn, one angel, BUT, inside the Sepulcher, sitting on the right side, His message to Mary is the same; “GO AND TELL!”  Verse 9, is a problem child but, move the coma from behind the word “WEEK” to just behind the word “RISEN” and it CLEARS the waters considerably!  It also coincides then with St. Matthew’s record.

In St. Luke 24:3-4, there are two angels standing by them.

In St. John 20:1-2, Mary makes another trip to the sepulcher, stone removed (same as previous trips) runs, gets Peter and John and returns.  Peter and John leave Mary weeping stays. 

Verses 11-12, standing outside the sepulcher, she stooped down, looked in and sees two angels sitting, one at the head, the other at the foot.

HENCE FOUR TRIPS BY A FEMALE ‘DOUBTING THOMAS!  Yet beloved of Christ, as were those “doubting apostles”!  Can we blame just her?


How did the venerable day of the Sun enter IF CHRIST ROSE LATE SABBATH AFTERNOON?  Eight times in the New Testament we read of the “first day of the week, Sunday”. Six Scriptures are found in the Gospels; St. Matthew 28:1, St. Mark 16:2 & 9; St. Luke 24:1; and St. John 20:1 & 19.  

Some, “translations” re-do St. Matthew 28:1-2, to “adjust” it to a SUNDAY resurrection, such as the NIV Bible, the Living Bible, the RSV Bible and others.  

We have 2 other Sunday scriptures: Acts 20:7, when taken in context; the Apostle Paul the Evangelist, is traveling 
Through and eats a meal with the Disciples (Strong’s # 3101-a learners, i.e. a pupils) reads, “‘ready to depart on the morrow, he preached till Midnight!” 

Evangelists preached seven days a week.  Does this “‘Sanctify” the First Day or Sunday?  NO!  No more than the Sabbath in Revival Time diminishes from its importance.

In 1st Corinthians 16:2, we find instructions by Paul for the gathering of foods and etc. for the aid of brethren in Jerusalem, “That there be no gatherings when I come”.  Does this make it a ‘Holy Gathering Day?  NO!

In History Constantine 1 and Martin Luther

Most Professing Christians who know of Constantine the Great, and the fact that in the midst of VERY severe persecution / slaughter of both the Church and the Jews, he declared an amnesty for the Church!  Most know of his “vision,” in which he saw a huge cross and was told, “By this sign thou shall conquer.”  Thus came “conversion” and the stoppage of slaughtering of Christians.  What they don’t seem to be aware of is the fact that a “cross” was to many Pagan religions a SIGN of their Sun God in his various environs. 

Fact: Constantine led the Gauls at that time and the cross to them was a symbol of their Sun god!

According to Acts 2:41, 3000 souls were added to the Church in one day!  Verses 41-47, with more added daily. Thus a considerable host fled from persecution in Jerusalem “and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.” 

They that were scattered abroad went everywhere preaching the word, Acts 8:4. 

Conversion of both Gentiles and Jews began!  We’re told that Sunday observance was brought into the church in the latter part of the 2nd century of the Christian era by “professed” Christians bringing heathen worship, rites and festivals with them.

Despite persecution from both Jews and Rome.  Christianity grew like wildfire!  Satan also was hard at work.  From Funk and Wagnall’s Encyclopedia, book 19, Page 266-267, we find that St. Peter became the first Catholic Pope, from 42 to 67 A.D. “according to them.”

Rome’s actions, first against the Jews, later against the Christians, led to early antagonism between professing Christians and the Jews. 
In 49 A.D. Emperor Claudius expelled all Jews from Rome.

July 64 A.D., two thirds of Rome burned, Nero then cruelly persecuted Christians, blaming them for the fire.  Meanwhile Jewish influence had found new favor with the Emperor, thus making Gentile Christians distance themselves from them.

After Nero’s death, Jews were again objects of Roman anger and contempt.  Under Vespasian “A.D. 69-79” the Sanhedrin and high priest’s offices were abolished, worship at the Jews Barren Temple site strictly forbidden!

Testimony from 2nd Century professing Christian church fathers including Ignatius, Barnabas, and Justin Martyr, wrote against Sabbath keeping, “A.D. 98-160.”  Emperor Hadrian “117-138” outlawed the Jewish religion, including the Sabbath, levied heavy taxes specifically on Jews. 

The Sabbath was made a mandatory “Fast Day,” Roman rulers being at the fountainhead of these offences.


In 312, Constantine the Great had his “vision” of the CROSS-, referred to above.  Worship of the cross predates Christianity by centuries!  To the natives in Central America, the cross symbolized their “god of Rain”.  To the Gauls, the Sun god, the giver of life and Constantine headed up the Gauls at that time.

With his ‘conversion’ came a total change in attitude toward Christianity.  Gone were the edicts, In 313 he decreed Christianity the “lawful religion” thru-out the Western portion of the Empire. Sunday was, to a limited extent brought in, In the 2nd century but Constantine paved the way for the OFFICIAL change of the Sabbath. 

To your writer, it was simply a matter of, “IF you can’t beat them, join them—and USE THEM!” 

His “official edict” in favor of it in 321 A.D. follows;

“Let all the judges and town people; and the occupation of all trades, rest on the venerable day of the sun; but let those who are situated in the country, freely and at full liberty attend to the business of agriculture because it often happens that no other day is so fit for sowing corn and planting vines; lest the critical moment being let slip, men should lose the commodities granted by heaven.” 

In the 9th century that exemption was repealed.  While accepting the “Jewish Messiah,” Constantine still hated the Jews.  May 30, 325 A.D., he said “Let us have nothing in common with the Jews, who are our adversaries” thus, concluding the question of Jewish Festivals and the Sabbath, therefore this irregularity must be corrected in order that we may no more have anything in common with the parricides and murderers of our Lord.”  It was made official by the Council of Laodicea A.D. 363. 

Earlier he had decreed,” Odious Jews may not celebrate Passover on the same week as the Christian Easter.”  Moving his HQ to Constantinople, he brought along a statue of a goddess from Rome.  He was baptized on his deathbed, and his last words were; “now we shall know.”

MOVING ON With the ‘catholic’ (universal/broadminded) church now under the protection of and mostly in accord with Rome’s rules of “Worship” excluding Judaism in any form, the exception being Christ, but He was a GOD, not a man, with the “venerable day of the Sun” as the “official” day of worship, the Catholic “Universal” Church was well on its way to making history!  

Jews and ALL keepers of the accursed Jewish Sabbath were persecuted for centuries to come!  But after a fashion Christianity was “free” to worship God according to the dictates of-----------?

In 11/9/1304, Dominican Leader Geordano da Revalto stated, “the Jews are evil at heart and hate the Church with evil hatred.  They are hated throughout the world because they are evil toward Christ.”  

He charges “Jews steal The Eucharistic Host to blaspheme it.”  The Jews were also accused of drinking innocent Christian blood at Passover Seders and using the same to make Passover Matzos.

Enter Martin Luther, and Protestant Reformation:

Every story has to have a “hero” and this one does too, though with feet of Clay.  Martin Luther, our hero “1483-1546” ordained a Catholic priest in 1507, he became a lecturer at the University of Wittenberg and after a visit to Rome.  He was made a Doctor of Theology and professor of Biblical Literature in 1512. 

Problem; he became keenly aware of the deep gulf between God’s required righteousness and his own shortcomings in that field. Gradually he came to the firm conviction that man’s sins are freely forgiven by God, but only because of the merits of Christ, not of any man’s merit in man’s works. That salvation is a gift of God rather than an achievement of man, and the result of faith. 

In his studies, the book of James came under fire as not being in line with his theology, for, as we know, James strongly taught that Faith without works is dead.  With Luther the requirement of “works” had nothing to do with it.  

Selective Application of Scripture: Luther‘s tendency was to separate justification from Sanctification and tended to see the LAW as merely a tool thru which people could see their inability to do God’s will.  Therefore the sinner throws him / herself on the mercies of God after which not even the Ten Commandments are needed.

The Christian does good works out of spontaneous love and in obedience to God.  Thus, he declared; “Moses is no concern of ours.”  Luther rejected the books of James as; “a right strawy epistle.”  The Book of Revelation also came under fire; “There is too much lacking in this book to call it Apostolic or Prophetic.

In 1517 a Dominican monk, came to Wittenberg area selling indulgences to raise money for reconstruction of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. They, under certain conditions promised a remission of temporal punishment for individual’s sins, with documents confirming the same.

Luther fought back, with his “95 theses” On October 31, 1517.  He nailed his theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg.  This act was considered the “Beginning of the Reformation.”  A papal legate was sent to interview Luther in Augsburg.  The papal rep. demanded a complete retraction, which was refused; unless, they could 
Biblically prove him wrong.

Luther appealed to the Pope.  A Truce was declared on both sides, broken by a challenge to Luther for a debate.  The Debate was inconclusive, but it reopened the discussion. 

In 1520 Luther writes three “3” treatises on reform, attacking abuses in the church.  He attacked the sacramental system.

In another book, Luther restated his fundamental teaching concerning faith toward God and love toward one’s fellow man.  Pope Leo issued a bull condemning his doctrines. Luther publicly burned the bull and a copy of cannon law. Placed under ban of the Empire, his friends kidnap him for his safety and he stayed put for a year

In 1522 he goes to mediate a dispute between his followers (which were many) and the political authorities.  Two years later peasants revolted against their feudal masters, justifying their demands via Luther’s teachings!  We’re told that at first Luther sympathized with the Peasants, urged both sides toward compromise.  The Peasants ignored his advice, continued armed rebellion a against the authorities, Luther issued a tract urging the ‘revolt’ be crushed, it was done so brutally, that that suppression cost Luther the support of a great many of the common people of Germany.


During all this time Luther and his fast growing following proclaimed as their motto; “The Bible and the Bible only.”

The Bible as interpreted by the Church and according to the unanimous consent of the Fathers was and is the position of the Catholic Church. 

Meanwhile, we find a little known Sabbatarian; Andreas B Carlstadt, a personal friend and co-worker with Luther but strongly opposed him on the Sabbath issue.  Luther freely acknowledged Carlstadt’s Biblical knowledge far surpassed his; nevertheless, Luther totally opposed the Sabbath, calling it “Legalistic.”  He did however acknowledge that Sunday was not the Biblical Sabbath, Saturday was.


Around 1543, Luther wrote 3 books.  I managed to get a copy of “On the Jews and Their Lies,” Reprinted by the Fortress Press & Augsburg Fortress; it is from Luther’s works Volume 47.  

Almost from the start I find an almost unbelievable “to me” hatred of, and focused toward Jews!  Without going into it in depth, I will give a partial of his 8 point plan for dealing with them.  Anyone who can call this a Christian approach, needs to seriously review their Final Destination!  

In part XI, page 69 we find this: Martin Luther’s 8 Point Plan First, set fire to their Synagogues or schools and to bury and to burn, to cover with dirt whatever will not burn, so that no man will ever again see a stone or cinder of them.

Second, I advise that their houses also be razed and destroyed. 

Third, I advise that all their prayer books and Talmudic writings, in which idolatry, lies, cursing and blasphemy are taught, be taken from them.”

Fourth, I advise that their Rabbis be forbidden to teach henceforth on the pain of loss of life and limb.

Fifth, I advise that safe-conduct on the highway be abolished completely for the Jews.

Sixth, I advise that usury be prohibited to them, that all cash and treasure of silver and gold be taken from them….such money should be used in…. the following way… Whenever a Jew is sincerely converted, he should be handed a certain amount?

Seventh, I commend putting a flail, an axe, a hoe, a spade, a distaff, or a spindle into the hands of young strong Jews and Jewesses and letting them earn their bread in the sweat of their brow….For it is not fitting that they should let us accursed Goyim toil in the sweat of our faces while they, the holy people, idle away their time behind the stove, feasting and farting, and on top of it all, boasting blasphemously of their lordship over the Christians by means of our sweat. No, one should toss out these lazy rogues by the seat of their pants.”

Eighth, If we wish to wash our hands of the Jews Blasphemy and not share in their guilt, we have to part company with them, They must be driven from our country” and we must drive them out like mad dogs.

Thus we have a thumbnail sketch of the hatred, or at least the abject prejudice of the Pillar of a FAILED Reformation!

Why bring in Luther’s’ friend Carlstadt?  The point around which Luther’s’ “Sola Scripture,” “SCRIPTURE ONLY” banner, and hence the prime movement AGAINST Catholic Doctrines ran aground was the fourth Commandment!  The SABBATH!

The eminent Doctor Dowling in his history of Romanism, Book two, chapter one, says: “The Bible and the Bible only, is the religion of the Protestants:  He who receives a single doctrine from the mere authority of tradition, by so doing steps down from the Protestant Rock, passes over the line that separates Protestantism from Popery and give no reason why he should not receive all the earlier doctrines and ceremonies of Romanism.

Again, the Italian historian Gavassi says, “A pagan flood flowing into the Church carried with it its customs, practices and idols.”  (Gavazzi’s Lectures, Page 290).

Another authority, Dr. White Bishop of Ely: “The observance of the Seventh Day was being revived in Luther’s time by Carlstadt” (Treatise of the Sabbath, page 8) And from Sears’ Life of Luther, Page 402: “Carlstadt held to the Divine Authority of the Sabbath from the Old Testament.”

Indeed Luther says (in his book Against the Celestial Prophets) “Indeed, if Carlstadt were to write further about the Sabbath, Sunday would have to give way, and the Sabbath, that is to say, Saturday, must be kept Holy.”

Carlstadt said: “In regard to the ceremonies of the Church, all are to be rejected which have no warrant in the Bible.”

Luther asserted on the contrary, “whatever is not against the scripture is for it.”  “Not so,” said Carlstadt.  “We are bound to the Bible, and no one may decide after the thoughts of his own heart” (Sears’ Life of Luther, p. 401-402)

“It cannot be denied that in many respects Carlstadt was in advance of Luther, and doubtless the Reformation owes him much food for which he has not the credit” (McClintok and Strong’s Cyclopedia, volume 2, page 123).  

References in the following paragraph are taken from History of the Sabbath by Andrews.  See third edition, 1887: “From the Catholic “Roman” teaching of justification by works of penance, etc., Luther went to the opposite extreme of justification without works.  This idea caused him to deny the epistle of James was inspired, because James said, “Faith, if it hath not works, is dead being alone,” This attitude made Luther spurn the true Christian Sabbath.”

Protestant Victory Almost Won, BUT LOST, WHY?

G. E. Fifield, DD, in his tract, “Origin of Sunday as a Christian Festival” (Published by American Sabbath Tract Society, Seventh Day Baptist Church). “At the Council of Trent, called by the Roman Church to deal with questions arising out of the Reformation, it was an apparent possibility that the Council would declare in favor of the reformed doctrines instead of against them, so profound was the impression made thus far by the teachings of Luther and other reformers.” 

The question was debated day by day, until it was fairly brought to a standstill.  Finally the Archbishop of Reggio turned the Council against the Reformation by the following argument: “The Protestants claim to stand upon the written word only; they profess to hold the Scriptures alone as the standard of faith.  They justify their revolt by a plea that the Church has apostatized from the written word and follows tradition.  Now the Protestants claim that they stand on the written word alone is not true.”

Why Lutheran Claim Was Not True:

“Their profession of holding the Scriptures alone as the standard of faith is false.  Proof: The written word explicitly enjoins the observance of the Seventh Day as the Sabbath. They do not observe the Seventh Day, but reject it.  If they truly hold the Scriptures alone as the standard, they would be observing the seventh day as it is enjoined in the Scripture throughout.  Yet they not only reject the observance of the Sabbath as enjoined in the written word, but they have adopted, and do practice, the observance of Sunday, for which they have only the tradition of the (Catholic) Church.”

Consequently, the claim of Scripture alone as the standard fails and the doctrine of “Scripture and tradition as essential” is fully established, the Protestants themselves being judges.”  See ‘The proceedings of the council of Trent, Augsburg confession and Encyclopedia Britannica, article ‘Trent, Council of.  “At this argument, the party that had stood for ‘Scripture alone’ surrendered, and the Council at once unanimously condemned Protestantism, and the whole Reformation.  It at once proceeded to enact stringent decrees to arrest its progress.


Let’s hear what Myers says: “The results of the revolt, very broadly stated, was the separation from the Roman Catholic Church of the Northern or Teutonic nations, that is to say, of Northern Germany, parts of Switzerland and the Netherlands, and Denmark, Norway, Sweden, England and Scotland.  The Romance, namely Italy, France and Spain, together with Celtic Ireland, adhered to the old Nations Church.”  Of the spiritual results of the revolt the same writer says: “In a spiritual or a religious point of view, this severance of the Northern nations of the bonds that formerly united them to the ecclesiastic empire of Rome meant a transfer of their allegiance.”  And he finally sums up. “Thus half of Western Christendom was lost to the Roman Church.”

From this we see that the Roman Church, attacked by the Reformers, had at one time faced utter defeat.  But she recovered!  The reformers had dealt a death blow to the Papacy.  

Unfortunately, the reformers themselves bound up the wound by clinging to Sunday, Rome’s day, and to other Papal traditions.  They rejected the Sabbath of the Scriptures.

And thru it all there were Sabbath keepers, both Jew and Gentile during this whole time period.  Just as God had to inform Elijah that he was indeed NOT the only one left, even if it starts to seem that way, for, said God, “I have yet 7,000 men that have not bowed the knee to Baal, 1st Kings 19:18.

Conclusion; “Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour.  Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot; they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness, Jeremiah, 12:9-10.

Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.  But they said, “We will not walk therein.”  Also I set watchmen over you, saying, hearken to the sound of the trumpet, But they said, we will not hearken, Jeremiah 6:16-17.

“Come out of her my people…” {Revelation 18:4-8}

We know, with Elder Frank Walker and other writers quoted here, that the Protestant Reformation, was led by a man that had apparently a very Un-godly outlook on those ‘Christ killing Jews-- and Judaism.  Plus anyone else who didn’t walk the same walk, talk the same talk. 

In our study here we find a very strong contingent that teach and believe that the writings of Martin Luther were used very strongly by Adolf Hitler in inciting Germany to a killing hatred of those, to him, “accursed Jews!”  In his book, ‘On the Jews and Their Lies’, the Contempt, and outright hatred of and for the Jews, Makes it an open question how did he get to where he did.  Yet, we know that God raised up King Cyrus, calling him His servant, at the same time stating that Cyrus had not known him, yet he Cyrus, would do God’s will! “See Isaiah 45:4-6.” 

The same is said of Nebuchadnezzar, 1st Chronicles 6:15, Ezra 5:12, Jeremiah 25:9 and Jeremiah 27:6.  God is giving a last solemn warning today to come out of those same traditions that most early Protestant leaders carried over from the Roman Catholic Church.  The attempted change of the Sabbath command, Exodus 20:8-11, is only part of the long list.  Tradition is vain worship, St. Matthew 15:2-6, St. Mark 7:3 & 5-13 and Colossians 2:8.

Our eternal destiny is at stake in our decisions, friends.

We have an excellent small tract entitled “Catholic Confessions About Sunday” Written by Elder Frank M Walker that is available upon request.  Just ask for it.
