Genesis 2:3 

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.


       Exodus 20:11 

For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

  Exodus 31:13 

Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.

      Ezekiel 20:12 

Moreover also I gave them my Sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.


At the creation of this world God worked for six days speaking this world into being.  It was a marvelous sight of perfection and most glorious beauty.  On the seventh day He rested and set aside this seventh day as very special for His communion with His creatures he had just made and for them to worship Him.  The Sabbath was to be a continual reminder to the human race that God was the One who made them and expected their worship to Him.  It was not just another day to do as you please. But to recognize God’s authority and in order to fulfill their happiness they would out of love for Him obey His commands.  Every person has this choice to obey or not. 

      It is clear the devil has done everything he could to have things go his way and is still deceiving the majority of people.

  At Sinai God refreshed the minds of

the people with the fact that there is a

Sabbath to keep holy.

  The Sabbath is embedded in the center of the unchangeable Law with the name of our Creator and where he rules, the Lord of heaven and earth. The Sabbath is in the center of the Law written with the finger of God as if on a diamond engraved in solid stone.  It is perpetually eternal and will never be forgotten.

  Sometimes man seems to express the idea that God does not know how to keep strict and accurate account of time.  But it so happens that God knows everything that has happened every second of time by every person ever living since the time of creation of this planet.  All through history God has had His faithful people keeping track of time.

  Here are some examples of the records-


      Ezekiel 40:1 

In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me thither.


      Exodus 12:40,41 

Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who Dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.

    And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.


      Esther 2:16 

So Esther was taken unto king

Ahasuerus into his house royal

in the tenth month, which is the

month Tebeth, in the seventh year

of his reign.


 Esther 3:7 

In the first month, that is, the month

Nisan, in the twelfth year of king

Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is,

the lot, before Haman from day to

day, and from month to month,

to the twelfth month, that is, the

month Adar.


     1 Chronicles 9:1 

So all Israel were reckoned by

genealogies; and, behold, they

were written in the book of the

kings of Israel and Judah, who

were carried away to Babylon for

their transgression.


1 Chronicles 29:29

 Now the acts of David the king,

first and last, behold, they are

written in the book of Samuel

the seer, and in the book of Nathan

the prophet, and in the book of Gad

the seer,


Daniel 2:1 

And in the second year of the reign

of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar

dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit

was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.


 Daniel  9:2 

In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood By books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

  Jesus told Daniel when the Investigative judgment would start.  Daniel 7:9&10 says Jesus went from the Holy Place into the Most Holy Place in Heaven.  It would not be very wise for God to tell Daniel these things would happen in October 22, 1844 if He was not keeping accurate time and if man would add or take away days.


     These truths were revealed to

William Miller.  God would not

let this great event pass by without

the world knowing something

was happening.  The Lord even

gave Hiram Edson a vision in

the corn field to make it plain

to the faithful people what Jesus

was doing for us in the Heavenly



Daniel 7:9 

I beheld till the thrones were cast

down, and the Ancient of days did

sit, whose garment was white as

snow, and the hair of his head like

the pure wool: his throne was like

the fiery flame, and his wheels as

burning fire.


Daniel 7:10 

A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

  Man can make a hundred calendars or more the way he wants. But he can not add time and he can not take away time.  And for sure he will never change the seven day week that began at the creation of this world.  The seventh day Sabbath will always be the special day God blessed and Sanctified and made Holy. When Jesus was on earth he went to the temple and synagogue on the Sabbath day.  He did not say now we follow the moon cycle to keep the Sabbath.


What He did say in Isaiah-


      Isaiah 66:23 

And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.


If the saint will keep the New Moon in Heaven then we certainly should remember it now. 


The Lord had Moses make trumpets to blow for the New Moon at the beginning of each month.


The New Moon is a type of the

Feast of Trumpets and also for-

shadows the second coming of

Jesus in the clouds of glory when

Jesus will blow the trumpet loud

and give a shout and then the graves

will give up the righteous dead.



      Psalms 81:3 

Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.

  The Seventh day Sabbath is to be the final test for God’s people at the close of probation.  Those who do not obey the Sunday law will not be able to buy or sell.  So our trust is in the Creator who told us to keep the seventh day Sabbath.  He would not tell us to do something we are not able to do in His wisdom and power.  The devil does not care if we keep a day that Jesus has not made holy.  We are to be settled into the truth so we cannot be moved.  I pray the people of God will be solid on the Rock of truth for all have to meet this test in one way or another.


Man and the Devil can give the days

all the pagan names they would like. 

That does not change our hold on Christ. 

For He said render to Caesar the thing

that are Caesars and to God the things

that are God’s.  The Lord made the

sun and the moon and we worship the

Lord not the sun and moon.  Just because

Satan uses God’s creation the wrong

way do we stop showing God we appreciate

His blessings.  Jesus bids us to live in

this world but not be a part of it.  So

the evil is all around us but we do not

let it separate us from Jesus.


 The Lord is the only One who can

alter time as with Joshua and Hezekiah.


      Joshua 10:12 

Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the

day when the LORD delivered up the

Amorites before the children of Israel,

and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun,

stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou,

Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.



      Isaiah 38:8 

     Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.




ARSH April 27, 1911


     "These principles are made known by the third angel's message, which declares that the Creator has always required and always will require obedience to his royal law. But this law has been disregarded and transgressed, and is now being ignored by the churches. Human enactments are placed where God's law should be. Sunday, a child of the Papacy, has taken the place of God's holy Sabbath. As Nebuchadnezzar made a golden image, and set it up to be worshiped by all, so Sunday is placed before the people to be regarded as sacred. This day bears not a vestige of sanctity, yet it is held up to be honored by all.




        ARSH April 15,1890


     He cannot do this, because God's holy law is as unchangeable as his throne, and is from everlasting to everlasting. Christ has said, "Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." But the question of Sabbath and Sunday observance is to be agitated everywhere, and  the deceptions of Satan will flood the world.  The man of sin has instituted a spurious sabbath, and the Protestant world has taken this child of the papacy and cradled and nurtured it. Satan means to make all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of the fornication of Babylon. Men are binding themselves together in bonds of union to show their disloyalty to the God of heaven.

          Evangelism  PG  233

 Called to Expose Man of Sin.  In the very time in which we live the Lord has called His people and has given them a message to bear. He has called them to expose the wickedness of the man of sin who has made the Sunday law a distinctive power, who has thought to change times and laws, and to oppress the people of God who stand firmly to honor Him by keeping the only true Sabbath, the Sabbath of creation, as holy unto the Lord.    




  ST March 12, 1896

  God's Law Immutable

       In the book of Revelation the prophet describes the scenes of the Gospel age, and he sees in heaven the ark of the testimony. There the holy law of God shines in holy dignity, just as when God wrote it with his own finger on tables of stone. John describes the work that will be done in the last days, when the Protestant churches form a confederacy with the Catholic power, and work against the law of God and against those who keep his commandments. John says, "The dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and

have the testimony of Jesus Christ." The Protestant world have cherished an institution of

the Papacy,--they have observed Sunday in preference to the Sabbath of the Lord their God,-- and in compelling men to keep Sunday, under penalty of law, they are exalting the first day of the week, a spurious sabbath, and casting dishonor upon the Sabbath of the fourth commandment. But the Lord says: "Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep; for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you." "For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God; the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
