  1. The New Testament Church The Lord’s Day

  2. Introduction • In its worship, as in all other matters the church must be governed by divine authority. • We must worship according to truth if we would worship acceptably. • Must have a “thus saith the Lord” for every practice. “Test all things; hold fast what is good.” {1 Thessalonians 5:21}

  3. Introduction • The observance of the Lord’s Day as a day of worship and service to the Lord is of New Testament origin. • Under Old Testament days the people of God observed the Sabbath Day. • The Lord’s Day is NOT the Christian’s Sabbath—two different laws—two different days.

  4. The Sabbath • Why was it Observed: • Because of Israel’s deliverance from bondage. • “And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the LORD your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the LORD your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.” {Deuteronomy 5:15}

  5. The Sabbath • Why was it Observed: • Given after Jehovah’s deliverance of Israel. • Only during Mosaic Dispensation not during Patriarchy. • “The LORD did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, those who are here today, all of us who are alive.” {Deuteronomy 5:3}

  6. The Sabbath • By whom Observed: • It was a sign between God and Israel. • “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: 'Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you. You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.” {Exodus 31:13,14}

  7. The Sabbath • By whom Observed: • It was a sign between God and Israel. • “Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.” {Exodus 31:15,16}

  8. The Sabbath • By whom Observed: • Not a sign between God and all nations, special sign for the God and Jews. • “It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.” {Exodus 31:17}

  9. The Sabbath • The Sabbath ended: • Some contend a “perpetual covenant.” No more than animal sacrifice and burning of incense. • “And when Aaron lights the lamps at twilight, he shall burn incense on it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your generations.” {Exodus 30:8}

  10. The Sabbath • The Sabbath ended: • Some contend a “perpetual covenant.” No more than animal sacrifice and burning of incense. • “Command the children of Israel, and say to them, 'My offering, My food for My offerings made by fire as a sweet aroma to Me, you shall be careful to offer to Me at their appointed time.” {Numbers 28:2}

And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.” {Colossians 2:13,14}

  15. The Sabbath • The Sabbath ended: • The end of the Sabbath prophesied. • Fulfillment… • “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
