The devil has two modes of attack against the church of God: as a serpent, he is a deceiver, and as a dragon, he is a persecutor. His first method of attack is almost invariably deception, because if he can deceive a man into teaching lies, he can get him condemned:
(Jeremiah 48:10) "Cursed is he who does the work of the LORD deceitfully,"
Concerning the observance of the Sabbath day, the devil has been very subtle, and deceived many into believing a very serious error, that the Sabbath day no longer needs to be kept in the New Testament, but Sunday is now the day of worship and rest for the Church. Jesus taught, "If you will enter into life, keep the commandments." (Matthew 19:17), and we know that he was referring to the Ten Commandments because he quoted some of them (Matthew 19:18-19). If Jesus made a condition of entering into eternal life, that we keep the Ten Commandments, then how can we enter into it without keeping them? A true believer will obey Jesus. These words, along with others that Jesus taught (Matthew 5:17-19; 23:1-3), are our basis for observing the Sabbath day in the New Testament. He said:
(Matthew 24:35) "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."
Therefore, the purpose of this study is to show from the scripture that the fourth commandment, concerning the Sabbath day, was
never scrapped by God as a day for his people to gather together for study and worship. Neither God, nor the apostles of Jesus, ever instituted Sunday as a
substitute for the Sabbath day, and the idea that Sunday is a memorial of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is false, because he did not rise on Sunday.
