According to the Scriptures, the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. I am not against the Spiritual Law of God as you two are. I believe the 4th Commandment should be kept and you two do not.

Now, the Sabbath and the Holy Days will be kept when Christ returns (Isa 66 and Zech 14) whether you approve or not.

You can't try to justify SUN-day with any support from the scriptures. Is it just not there. Catholic writers have chided Protestants on the fact that to keep Sunday admits they are subjecting themselves to the authority of the church at Rome and not the Word of God as Protestants like to claim.


Statements by Catholics:

"Sunday is a Catholic institution, and its claim to observance can be defended only on Catholic principles . . From beginning to end of Scripture there is not a single passage that warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last day of the week to the first."—Catholic Press, Sydney, Australia, August, 1900.

http://www.seventh-day.org/historians.htm

"We Catholics, then, have precisely the same authority for keeping Sunday holy instead of Saturday as we have for every other article of our creed, namely, the authority of the Church . . whereas you who are Protestants have really no authority for it whatever; for there is no authority for it [Sunday sacredness] in the Bible, and you will not allow that there can be authority for it anywhere else."—The Brotherhood of St. Paul, "The Clifton tracts," Volume 4, tract 4, p. 15.

Historians tell us how sunday sacredness began....


Confession of a Baptist:

"There was and is a command to keep holy the Sabbath day, but that Sabbath day was not Sunday. It will however be readily said, and with some show of triumph, that the Sabbath was transferred from the seventh to the first day of the week, with all its duties, privileges and sanctions. Earnestly desiring information on this subject, which I have studied for many years, I ask, where can the record of such a transaction be found? Not in the New Testament—absolutely not. There is no scriptural evidence of the change of the Sabbath institution from the seventh to the first day of the week."—Dr. E. T. Hiscox, author of the Baptist Manual.

Historians tell us how sunday sacredness began....

Carnal minds? Where does the authority of God's Word come in to this subject? I have not shuned God's Word, have you?

Exodus 20:
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Now, that is a Commandment of/from God! Not the Pope. Not Billy Graham. But from God and there is no other commandment to replace it with any other day of the week.

It's time you get your eyes opened to the Truth from God's Word the Holy Bible.

Wake UP!!!

GAL 3:23-25 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.


GAL 4:8-12 Howbeit then, when you knew not God, you did service unto them which by nature are no gods. But now, after that you have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn you again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto you desire again to be in bondage? You observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain. Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as you are: you have not injured me.

"These converts to whom Paul is now writing WERE NOT JEWS! They were Gentiles by birth. These GENTILE converts in times past did not know God, were cut off from Him (see Eph. 2:12)...False teachers were coming among them, perverting the true gospel, beguiling them to TURN AGAIN TO THEIR FORMER WAYS. Paul was alarmed. They were departing from the gospel and RETURNING to WHAT? 'Days, and months, and times and years.'...They couldn't be returning to God's festivals. They never kept them before Paul preached about them."

Paul was talking to Peter a Jew while the Gentles listened. Why else would Paul be talking about the differance between law and grave. The Gentles knew very little of the law but they obviously knew about the Jews days, months and years from Peter because Paul derided Peter for teaching that these things were important.

GAL 2:14-19 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If you, being a Jew, live after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why do you compell the Gentiles to live as do the Jews? We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God."

Being in Christ does not make one lawless as you seem to think we teach. Christ is the power of spiritual life, not the law.

"Beginning with verse 6, PAUL CEASES TO SPEAK TO THE JEWS. Now he is speaking to the Gentile converts. He does not say 'we,' but 'you.' Notice it! 'Howbeit, then, WHEN YE KNEW NOT GOD' -- remember, THE JEWS KNEW GOD, but the Gentiles had not known God before the preaching of the gospel! Jesus said to the Gentile Samaritan woman: 'YE' the Gentiles -- 'worship ye know not what: 'WE' -- the Jews -- 'know what we worship for salvation is of the JEWS' (John 4:22)."

No. Romans 8:7 says a carnal mind cannot be subject to the law of God.

Romans 8:
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

I have shown you that there is command to keep a day holy in the week. I have yet to have you show me that there is a command to keep SUN-day. Yet you will still not be subject to God's Spiritual Law and repent. That's proof right there. It's God's way or Satan's way. I choose the true God and the true Christ. God's commandment is written in the Holy Word of God. You have the commandments and traditions of men that come out of the church at Rome, the church of the Beast (Roman Empire).

Seventh-day Sabbath (God's way) = YES.
First day of week SUN-day (man's way) = NO.

Of course Paul spoke to those Gentles as he spoke to Peter in order to undo the damage that Peter had done by compelling them to observe days, months and years of the Jews law.

GAL 2:14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the Gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If you, being a Jew, live after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why do you compell the Gentiles to live as do the Jews? Not only that, Peter was living like a Gentle but being a hypocrite in teaching the Gentles to live like Jews.

You are as confused as Peter was [eventually he learned] because you do not understand the differance between Law and Grace.

JN 1:17 For the Law was given by Moses, but Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ. Only in Christ is the law fullfilled. Attempts to keep the letter of the law is futile in trying to please God. If you understood this then you would understand what Sabbath means.

Galatians 4 is not Galatians 2.

There is no mention of Peter in Galatians 4, which I am referring to.

Your grace is actually lawlessness -- to disobey God and do just as you please. Jude 4.

Jude
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jude [ERV]
4 Some people have secretly entered your group. These people have already been judged guilty for what they are doing. Long ago the prophets wrote about them. They are against God. They have used the grace of our God in the wrong way--to do sinful things. They refuse to follow Jesus Christ, our only Master and Lord.
God's grace is forgiveness of past sins and being reconciled to God (Romans 5) which means you will quit sinning from that point on and obey God via God's Holy Spirit and Christ living His sinless life in you (Galatians 2:20).

Paul kept the Commandments, the Spiritual Law of God but in Galatians he is speaking against the ritualistic Law of carnal ordinances of animal sacrifices and meat and drink offerings and rituals that pictured God's Holy Spirit.

I Corinthians 7:
19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.

You are throwing out the things that define righteousness (all of God's Commands are righteousness, Psalms 119:172) along with the things that picture and are a reminder of sin and were added later, and thus, you are preaching lawlessness.

Psalms 119:
172 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

If you are sinning willfully (breaking the God's Fourth Commandment -- the Sabbath), if your mind is not subject to the law of God (does not want to have anything to do with keeping God's 4th Commandment), then you probably were never converted to start with.

Just remember that when Christ returns, you are not going to be ruling with Him if you continue your ungodly position because Christ and the Saints are going to rule with a rod of iron and enforce the keeping of God's Commandments and Sabbaths and Holy Days.

Psalms 2:
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

Isaiah 2:
2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

Revelation 2:
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

Revelation 12:
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

Revelation 19:
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Isaiah 66:
22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.
24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.


Zechariah 14:
16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.


Those who are keeping the Spiritual Law of God (not the ritualistic, works of the law, carnal ordinances) are preparing to rule with Christ when He returns and enforces the keeping of God's Spiritual Law that will go forth from Zion.

Those of you who have done away with God's Spiritual Law (which includes the 4th Commandment, to keep the Sabbath holy) and have turned grace into license to disobey are actually following the false christ that is the archenemy of the real God and the real Christ -- Satan the Devil. He tricked Eve into disobeying God and he gone on and has deceived this entire world (except those who have been called out of this world) into disobeying God.

Revelation 12:
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

All I can do is warn you to wake up.

So, Wake Up!!!

I really dont get folks that cling to the Sabbath and ignore the rest of the law. All you do is mention the 10 commandments, when the 10 are part of 613 commands. All the feast days you listed from Leviticus 23 and Numbers 28 are part of the 613 commands. You cant pick and choose how you are to observe the law and condemn others that dont observe it the was you seem fit. Jesus didnt come to fulfill part of the law and the prophets, he fulfilled the entire law, because if he didnt he wouldn't be the messiah. If you claim Jesus only followed the 10 commandments, then you are referring to him as eating all the unclean foods and all the other things the law spoke against.

Do you wear a blue tassle on your garments???

Numbers 15:38-40


38 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘Throughout the generations to come you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel. 39 You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the Lord, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by chasing after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes. 40 Then you will remember to obey all my commands and will be consecrated to your God.


That is not a ceremonial command, that is a command to all Israel, which brings me to my point, why aren't you doing this since you cling to the Sabbath as your justification, observe the rest of the law as well like the bible commands you.

I have repeatedly said im not against people who keep a Saturday Sabbath even though you keep claiming I say that. I just say there is nothing wrong with Sunday worship and i have shown many times that the 1rst century church fathers were worshiping on Sunday long before the Roman Empire or Catholic church could do anything to the bible. The fact that you always have to point out COG articles, shows you are making an idol out of H. Armstrong, since his teaching are so valuable to you and many have proven alot of them to be false teaching.


Isaiah 66:20-25

New International Version (NIV)

20 And they will bring all your people, from all the nations, to my holy mountain in Jerusalem as an offering to the Lord—on horses, in chariots and wagons, and on mules and camels,” says the Lord. “They will bring them, as the Israelites bring their grain offerings, to the temple of the Lord in ceremonially clean vessels. 21 And I will select some of them also to be priests and Levites,” says the Lord.
22 “As the new heavens and the new earth that I make will endure before me,” declares the Lord, “so will your name and descendants endure. 23 From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,” says the Lord. 24 “And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.”



If your going to use Isaiah 66 as a reference, include the verses 20-21 as well so we can see the full content that he is speaking to folks of the Old Covenant, still under the law. Verse 20 makes is clear this is still ceremonial stuff the are doing and 21 talks about levitical priesthoods, which were done away with with Jesus ( Heb 7:12). Revelation 14:12 is referring to the people that are in the tribulation and it has already been explained before that Matt 19:17 is referring to not being materialistic and focusing on storing treasures in heaven than worry about what you can get on earth. So you can keep finding a verse here and there to make your point, much once it is read in context with the verses before and after them, its clear what there true meanings are.

Galations 4 is just a continuation of Galation 2 which 99.9999% of readers would agree with. If you can't understand that much, then there is no use in talking to you. Not once did I threated you with the fear of judgement and I won't now. It is a dirty way to try and get peoples respect for what your trying to teach if all you do is use scripture to condemn. Your misunderstanding of Galations forces me to post the following lengthy amount of scripture for the benifit of those who are not aware how you have twisted the truth.

GAL 2:14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?
GAL 2:15 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,
GAL 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
GAL 2:17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.
GAL 2:18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.
GAL 2:19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.
GAL 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
GAL 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
GAL 3:1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
GAL 3:2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
GAL 3:3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
GAL 3:4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.
GAL 3:5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
GAL 3:6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
GAL 3:7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
GAL 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
GAL 3:9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
GAL 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
GAL 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
GAL 3:12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.
GAL 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
GAL 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
GAL 3:15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
GAL 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
GAL 3:17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
GAL 3:18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
GAL 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
GAL 3:20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.
GAL 3:21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
GAL 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
GAL 3:23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
GAL 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
GAL 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
GAL 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
GAL 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
GAL 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
GAL 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
GAL 4:1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
GAL 4:2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
GAL 4:3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:
GAL 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
GAL 4:5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
GAL 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
GAL 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
GAL 4:8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.
GAL 4:9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?
GAL 4:10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.
GAL 4:11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.
GAL 4:12 Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all.
GAL 4:13 Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.
GAL 4:14 And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.
GAL 4:15 Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me.
GAL 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
GAL 4:17 They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.
GAL 4:18 But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.
GAL 4:19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,
GAL 4:20 I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you.
GAL 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
GAL 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
GAL 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.
GAL 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
GAL 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
GAL 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
GAL 4:27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
GAL 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
GAL 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
GAL 4:30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
GAL 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

Just as a precaustionary caveate to be careful with the non clarified "7th day" as the 7th day means a different cycle
to different religions. Pope Sylvester for example mandated Monday as the 1st day of the weeks rather than the Jewish
Sunday,thereby making sabbath Sunday instead of the traditional Saturday. It was like the papacy colarborated with
the spirit of Constantine who damed and defiled ALL Jewish roots once an intergral part of the original christians the
Essenes. This is one of the major perversions of "religion" bringing a volley of Gods wrath on the church if not curses?
