Remember the Sabbath to Keep it Holy –

7th day 2The Sabbath: How Do We Know Which Day It Is ?

article originally published in Signs of the Times,
September 22, 2015
written by: Ed Dickerson

I took a tour of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, USA, a while back, and my guide said that “the Declaration of Independence was signed in this room on July 4, 1776.” But he went on to explain that only one part of that statement was true. I love history, so standing merely a metre from where Thomas Jefferson had been seated in Independence Hall filled me with awe, and I thought perhaps I had misunderstood the man’s words. “It was not signed that day,” the guide said. “There was a war going on; they had more important things to deal with.”

On July 2 (and not the fourth), Congress unanimously approved the Declaration of Independence. But the vote was for a much altered document, with multiple passages crossed out, some words added and numerous corrections. It was definitely not suitable for framing or public display. The final draft was presented to Congress on July 4, which they then ratified as correct. On July 19, Congress ordered final “engrossed” copy, that is, one written in a large, clear hand. That’s the one on display at the National Archives, but this final copy wasn’t actually signed until August 2. 

Discovering that the signing of the Declaration of Independence didn’t take place on July 4, 1776, got me thinking about dates, days and, being a pastor, the Sabbath.

Lucifer – the fall from Heaven ?

satan cast out 5The Controversy Begins –

     “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying . . . Lord (Sovereign, King), even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name. And Jesus said unto them . . . I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven (why are you surprised? for it was I Who cast him out) !
     Behold, I give unto you power* to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you . . . !”     Luke 10:17-19

     “The history of the great conflict between good and evil, from the time it first began in heaven to the final overthrow of rebellion and the total eradication of sin, is also a demonstration of God’s unchanging love. 

     The Sovereign of the universe was not alone in His work of beneficence. He had an Associate –a Co-Worker who could appreciate His purposes, and could share His joy in giving happiness to created beings. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (Deity, Divine) . . . The same was in the beginning with God.” John 1:1- 2. Continue reading

The Law of God – Fulfilled or destroyed ?

Bible_101     The question which is now being asked by many of God’s children is . . . . If Christ came to “fulfill” the law, then what part did He destroy ?

     This is a vital Truth for each of God’s children to know. The LORD did not come to change His Law (instructions in righteousness) . . . “For He shall magnify the Law and make it honourable” (Isaiah 42:21) . . . . but rather He has given us the promise that He will change our carnal hearts of stone !

Verily, verily, I say unto you . . . Ye must be begotten again !”
John 3:1-7, James 1:18 & I Peter 1:22-25

The Two Covenants –

What was done away at the Cross ?

“For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the Second. And finding fault with them, He saith, Behold, the days come, saith the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), when I shall make a New Covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah . . .”
Hebrews 8:7-8

Witten not with ink, but with the Spirit of the Living God; not in tables of stone, but in the fleshly tables of the heart . . . !”   II Corinthians 3:3 Continue reading
