The Sabbath – An Everlasting Sign (Mark) and Covenant of God

[ Main Page: The 7th Day Sabbath MARK of God ]

Deuteronomy 4:12-13“And the LORD י ה ו ה spoke unto you out of the midst of the fire: you heard the voice of the words, but saw no form; only you heard a voice.  And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.”

From the 10 Commandments:

Exodus 20:8-11:  (1) And God spoke all these words, saying, …  (8)  Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.”

In Exodus 31:13-15 (ESV) God states:  “‘Above all you shall keep my Sabbaths, for this is a sign[H226]between me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I, the LORD י ה ו ה, makes you holy.  You must keep the Sabbath, because it is holy for you. …”

Strong’s Ref. #H226 in Hebrew means: a signal, flag, beacon, monument, evidence, mark, sign.

Isaiah 66:22-23 describes THE SABBATH IN ETERNITY:   “For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, says the LORD י ה ו ה, so shall your seed and your name remain.  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, says the LORD י ה ו ה.”

Jesus (Y’shua) reveals that SABBATH IS KEPT IN THE LAST DAYS in Matthew 24:20-21:   “But pray that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day:  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.”

In Revelation 14:12, John talks about the End Times Church saying:  “Here is the perseverance of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”

The 7th Day Sabbath is God’s MARK
a sign between him and his people FOREVER.

In Exodus 31:16-17, God states:  “Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.  It is a sign[H226] between me and the children of Israel forever…”

Ezekiel 20:12“… I gave them my Sabbaths, to be a sign[H226] between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD י ה ו ה that makes them holy.”

Ezekiel 20:19-20 (ESV):  “I am the LORD י ה ו ה your God; walk in my statutes, and be careful to obey my rules, and keep my Sabbaths holy that they may be a sign[H226] between me and you, that you may know that I am the LORD י ה ו ה your God.”

Sunday is also a MARK

Sunday is also a MARK but of those who are obedient to the Roman Catholic Church.

“Sunday is our MARK of authority … the (Roman Catholic) church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact.”   –  The Catholic Record.  London, Ontario, Canada, Sept 1, 1923

“Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (from Saturday to Sunday) was her act…And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters.”  – Letter from C.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons of Baltimore, October 28, 1895

“It is well to remind the Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists, and all other Christians, that the Bible does not support them anywhere in their observance of Sunday. Sunday is an institution of the Roman Catholic Church, and those who observe the day observe a commandment of the Catholic Church.”  – Catholic Priest Brady, in an address, reported in the Elizabeth, NJ ‘News’ on March 18, 1903
