The Bible Sabbath, Which Day Is It?

Bible Studies

 

 Editor's Note: Because of the wide-spread misunderstanding about the seventh-day sabbath being Sunday, the first day of the week, I thought it would be important for us to consider what the bible says about this subject. The bible evidence is very clear! No where in the bible do we find any hint of the sabbath being the first day of the week, sunday. In fact, over and over in the old and new testament the bible refers to the seventh-day (saturday) as the sabbath. Because of the length of this bible study we will brake it up into several parts.

The Faith of Jesus

Bible Studies

      

     "For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement." Rom 5:10, 11

 

“The faith of Jesus has been overlooked and treated in an indifferent, careless manner. It has not occupied the prominent position in which it was revealed to John. Faith in Christ as the sinner's only hope has been largely left out, not only of the discourses given but of the religious experience of very many who claim to believe the third angel's message.” {3SM 168.2}

   1.       How are we made enemies to God?

  • ·         Thoughts Rom. 8:7,8
  • ·         Actions/Deeds/Sins Isa. 59:1,2

   2.       What does it mean to be “reconciled”?

  • ·         Pardon Isa. 55:7

·         Reconciliation 2 Cor. 5:18-21

3.       What does “reconciliation” bring back to man’s Christian experience?

·         Peace Col. 1:20, 21

·         Righteousness 2 Cor. 5:21

·         All Things (Physical, Mental, Spiritual) Rom. 8:32

“Through Christ, restoration as well as reconciliation is provided for man. The gulf that was made by sin has been spanned by the cross of Calvary. A full, complete ransom has been paid by Jesus, by virtue of which the sinner is pardoned, and the justice of the law is maintained. All who believe that Christ is the atoning sacrifice may come and receive pardon for their sins; for through the merit of Christ, communication has been opened between God and man. God can accept me as His child, and I can claim Him and rejoice in Him as my loving Father. We must center our hopes of heaven upon Christ alone, because He is our substitute and surety.”  {1SM 363.2} 

4.       What is required for reconciliation?

·         (Unconditional) Love Rom. 5:8

·         Blood Rom. 5:10, Lev. 6:30

5.       How do we experience “reconciliation”?

·         Communication Isa. 1:18

·         Repentance Acts 20:20, 21

·         Faith Acts 20:20, 21

“Repentance is no less the gift of God than are pardon and justification, and it cannot be experienced except as it is given to the soul by Christ. If we are drawn to Christ, it is through His power and virtue. The grace of contrition comes through Him, and from Him comes justification.  {FLB 110.3} 

     “Who is desirous of becoming truly repentant? What must he do? He must come to Jesus, just as he is, without delay. He must believe that the word of Christ is true, and, believing the promise, ask, that he may receive. When sincere desire prompts men to pray, they will not pray in vain. The Lord will fulfill His word, and will give the Holy Spirit to lead to repentance. . . . With prayer he [the repentant sinner] will mingle faith, and not only believe in but obey the precepts of the law. . . . He will renounce all habits and associations

Beholding Jesus With The Eye of Faith

Bible Studies

Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57.

By faith look upon the crowns laid up for those who shall overcome; listen to the exultant song of the redeemed, Worthy, worthy is the Lamb that was slain and hast redeemed us to God! Endeavor to regard these scenes as real. {RC 99.2} Stephen, the first Christian martyr, in his terrible conflict with principalities and powers and spiritual wickedness in high places exclaimed, "Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God" (Acts 7:56). The Saviour of the world was revealed to him as looking down from heaven upon him with the deepest interest, and the glorious light of Christ's countenance shone upon Stephen with such brightness that even his enemies saw his face shine like the face of an angel. {RC 99.3} If we would permit our minds to dwell more upon Christ and the heavenly world, we should find a powerful stimulus and support in fighting the battles of the Lord. Pride and love of the world will lose their power as we contemplate the glories of that better land so soon to be our home. Beside the loveliness of Christ, all earthly attractions will seem of little worth. {RC 99.4} Let none imagine that without earnest effort on their part they can obtain the assurance of God's love. When the mind has been long permitted to dwell only on earthly things, it is a difficult matter to change the habits of thought. That which the eye sees and the ear hears too often attracts the attention and absorbs the interest. But if we would enter the city of God, and look upon Jesus and His glory, we must become accustomed to beholding Him with the eye of faith here. The words and the character of Christ should be often the subject of our thoughts and of our conversation, and each day some time should be especially devoted to prayerful meditation upon these sacred themes. {RC 99.5} Sanctification is a daily work. Let none deceive themselves with the belief that God will pardon and bless them while they are trampling upon one of His requirements. The willful commission of a known sin silences the witnessing voice of the Spirit and separates the soul from God. {RC 99.6} Whatever may be the ecstasies of religious feeling, Jesus cannot abide in the heart that disregards the divine law. God will honor those only who honor Him. . . . Here is where Christ's help is needed. Human weakness becomes united to divine strength, and faith exclaims, "Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 15:57)!--The Sanctified Life, pp. 91-93.
