“In Christendom today there are a lot of controversies over which day is the Lord’s day, that is, the day our Lord and Savior must be worshiped for salvation. But, it is hidden from many salvation seekers that the all-wise God at creation gave man a particular day on which He should be worshiped as a memorial of His creation. As a result of this, God Himself plainly said in Isaiah 58:13 that the seventh-day Sabbath is His own day; thus, the phrases “My Holy Day” and “The Holy Day of the Lord” were used in that context.

Why the seventh-day became the day of God can be seen from Genesis 2:3: “Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”

This text shows that before God gave man the authority to worship Him on the seventh-day of the week, He Himself rested on that day as an example to all mankind….”
