Which Day Is The Sabbath Day?

Gen1:1 make us understand that in the beginning God created Heaven and Earth. In six literal days He created the earth. As recorded in Gen2:1,2 , God rested on the seventh day of the week and set it as aside. While in the garden of Eden, Adam and Eve observed the 7th day as a holy day. From generation to generation the Sabbath was observed. No wonder God while writing the Ten Commandments with His own finger (Exodus 20) included the Sabbath. God said Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. The word remember makes it so significant that sabbath has been in existence since. Among the 10, only the 4th is elaborate occupying more than three verses. Jesus Christ the son of God,  also observed the Sabbath. He pronounced Himself as the Lord of the Sabbath.  He emphasized that He is not here to abolish the law but to fulfill them. 

Jesus also kept the Sabbath while in the grave He would have resurrected  the next day but decided to follow the principle of His father by keeping the Sabbath. He resurrected on the first day of the week. 

My people, the standard of judgment is the 10 commandments James 2 make us understand if you are guilty in 1 you are guilty of all.. 

Think about this...

  • According to the Bible the seventh day is the Sabbath day and also according to the days of the week Sunday is the first day of the week, this means that Saturday Is the Sabbath day.

  • You have a point but in the old times the Sabbath day was Saturday which is the seventh day but we must understand that as christians, everyday of our lives should be dedicated to God because we are His temple. Therefore no day should be exalted more than the other when it comes to consecration to God. We must be faithful everyday of our lives as we always are on Sundays. God bless you

  • The Sabatth day was initially Saturday and was later shifted to Sunday because of the Romans. Since Sunday was when they worshipped their sun god

  • Jesus is the Sabbath you said it there in your article, as such you living totally in for Jesus Christ and his ways you are observing the Sabbath. The Sabbath is not a one day thing ,but an everyday commitment . The Sabbath itself is of the  old covenant and Christ dying on the Cross has made such things less important,the bible clearly state that we take pride in the less important and despise  the most important.

  • The sabbath day is the day set aside by God for us to rest and also worship him. 

    Whichever day of the week it falls on, either Saturday or sunday, observe it and keep it holy. 

    Honour God

  • Sabbath day is a day recommended by God to the children of Israel. And He order them make a day to meet with him. It is an order that they must observed it by working for 6 days and take  rest on the seventh day. By doing this then, they must not do any work, even flame of cooking must not be seeing.

  • The Sabbath day is formally Saturday but the early Disciples of Jesus change it to Sunday because Jesus rise up on Sunday. 

    - Isah Philip - 2019-08-21 15:19:27 Quote

  • I concede to the believe that the sabbath day is a day you personally set aside for your holy worship, let's make reference to the Bible, on the seventh day God rested, hence The Bible did not stipulate the particular day God started creation,  if it was on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday,  or Sunday, we can't tell.

    Who knows, the true sabbath day might even fall on one of the week days 

    - Samuel Ejii - 2019-08-21 21:05:37 Quote

  • According to the Scriptures, the Sabbath day is the 7th day which falls on Saturday however, Christians now celebrate the day of the Lord on Sunday because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ which gave meaning to our Faith and life.

  • Personally, everyday can be a sabbath day to the individaul. The bible did not mention a specific day as a sabbath day. We cannot keep other days unholy and keep one holy because it is a sabbath day. We can keep all days holy if we can and have our sabbath days.

    - Awajima Ubulom - 2019-08-22 15:10:05 Quote

  • Many people know about keeping the Sabbath day holy but actually confused of which is the Sabbath day is it Saturday or Sunday left for me I will say Saturday because In the Bible God started creation on the first and we all know Sunday is the first day of the week and he rested on the last there by making Saturday the last

  • For some churches the sabbath day is Saturday while to other churches the sabbath day is Sunday. So we dont really knw the day for sabbath

  • Mark 2:27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

    If the Sabbath was made for man, meaning anyday can be your sabbath day. If you want to force someone to choose a day cos you feel you are right and the person is wrong, you are becoming like the Pharisees.

  • Sabbath day in the sense is Sunday, a holy day of obligation as a Christian.So we are meant to keep it holy.

  • The sabbath is Sunday which is the seventh day of the week,  and it should be kept holy, it is written in the bible. Exodus 20 vs 8, remember the sabbath day and make it holy

    - Taiwo Adebayo - 2019-08-24 01:12:46 Quote

  • According to the scriptural teachings, Saturday is the Sabbath Day. I think as christians, we should duly observe this as commanded (I and so many christians are guilty of this though). Things have changed and took a dive towards earthly orders and settings which I for one deem wrong. 

    - Bolarinwa Bodunde - 2019-08-24 03:01:38 Quote

  • Sabbath day is simply a day to be kept holy and everyone can choose his or her Sabbath day ,can be a dedicated day set aside for yourself and God outside the general one we already know as Sunday for some churches and Saturday for some other churches

    - Eseosasere Aiwanfo - 2019-08-24 06:41:46 Quote

  • Saturday is the sabbath because it is the seventh, God rested, blessed and hallow the sabbath day that is why it is a special to worship. And out of all the ten commandments, it  is the only commandment that start with remember because God knows that people will forget. So you cannot pick another day of worship aside from that day because God rested, blessed and hallow the sabbath day.

  • The Bible says; whatever two or more agree here on earth is agreed in heaven. So of my local assembly agrees to worship on Saturday heaven is in agreement. But I am of the opinion that Saturday is the sabath day.

    - Stephen Danladi - 2019-08-24 17:07:11 Quote

  • This is very interesting fact to discuss about, people prefer working on Saturday then go to church on Sunday and others go to church on Saturday then go to work on Sunday, so in this case the Bible said that God rested on the Sabbath day, so we can know this by searching for the first day of the week which is Sunday, so the correct answer is Saturday

  • I am not a Christian though,but from what I know,it's like a holy day where at least you must stay away from sins

  • Shaa but let us chack the meaning of Sabbath and they say that Sabbath means a day of worship so if Sabbath means a day of worship it means that any day you choose to be your Sabbath day should be your holy day for God.......

  • As we all know in the Bible it what stated to be Saturday the day God rested but in other way round it is a new era of worship for me sabart is a day set aside were u communion with your God an made holy so I use Sunday as mine

  • Many people thought the sabbath Day is Sunday but it is Saturday it's a little bit controversial, when you read your Bible closely you will see it's SATURDAY.

  • I actually did a research about this topic

    The original sabbath day which is still in place in isreal starts from Friday evening to Saturday evening and not actually Sunday which is now widely used in this part of the world.

  • Nobody on this earth really can say either Saturday or Sunday. The bible say what two or thress has  agreed on earth so shall it established in heaven. Believe your spiritual fathers and agree on their taught when it is Godly, because some of them no better that we do

  • Each and every day, God created and on the seventh day he rested. The days of the week starts from Sunday. That is to say that the first day if the week is Sunday while the last day which is the seventh day is Saturday. So the sabbath day is Saturday.

    - Albert Emmanuel - 2019-08-28 13:37:40 Quote

  • If God rested on the seventh day and the first day is Sunday, then the Sabbath day is Saturday. That's why the 7th day Adventists worship on the Sabbath day.

    Or the first day the Bible refers to is Monday, that makes Sunday the seventh day, which is the Sabbath.

  • Well, i actually expected you to spell out precisely to us what day the Sabbath is. But since our world today has believe it to be Sunday. Let's observe it will all diligence in honour to God.

  • Sabbath day is Saturday, which was meant to be a day of rest but sadly we humans are misinterpreting it in our own way...A lot of people think sabbath day is Sunday which is absolutely wrong

  • I believe it's Sunday because it's reminds us of Christ's resurrection and I think whichever day one chooses, Saturday or Sunday, should be respected.
