The True Day of Worship

Chinese – English

We got this question from a site reader:

Which is the true day of worship?

Paul’s reply:

Hi Magati,

The true day of worship is today, for all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ:

“For He says, ‘In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you.’ Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2 ESV).

Hebrews 3:12-15 ESV
(12) Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.
(13) But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
(14) For we share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.
(15) As it is said, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

“For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness” (1 Thessalonians 5:5 ESV).

1 Thessalonians 5:8-10 ESV
(8) But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.
(9) For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
(10) Who died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we might live with Him.

So if we believe in the Lord and live with Him, we’re worshipping Him all the time.

“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Do not quench the Spirit” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-19 MKJV).

But if you’re asking what day is the Sabbath, the day of rest, that is Saturday, and more specifically, by God’s definition, from Friday evening to Saturday evening.

You can read more about this in our Sabbath section.

Interestingly enough, the Sabbath is never called the day of worship in the Scriptures, only the day of rest. That’s because the worship of God isn’t about a time or day of the week, but a new creature and state of being that comes by faith.

“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to worship Him” (John 4:23 MKJV).

Diabolical Doctrine: Sunday Is the Sabbath

If you follow the Fourth Commandment of God, you have life. What and whose commandment are you following by keeping Sunday? Shall you have life following the law of a pagan ruler threatening death if you don't obey him?

Response to "Jews Who Hate Trump and Do Not Know Why"

Source: an amazing article! Superficially, it explains the mystery, contradiction, and quandary of Leftist Jews. It is SPOT ON!What is occurring in the world with Jews in the flesh is a parable of what happens in the born again Christian's spiritual odyssey into the Kingdom of God. The Jews have been their own worst enemy. I have been my own worst enemy. The effective instrument or substance of that internal enemy is none other than, as recorded and described in the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, as UNBELIEF, a fervent, substantive denial of the One and Only True God.Only fire can purge perfectly. We must all go through the fires of purification. This is accomplished by a purposed, ordained clash of good and evil. The God of Israel and of the Universe reigns supreme. He is in charge of both good and evil as He forms man in His Image to a perfect end. In the fullness of ages, we will all be brought to perfection in God's Image. We will know that Right is might and not the other way around. Wickedness, that is lawlessness, that is ignorance and contempt for God's Laws, as outlined in the Ten Commandments, will be utterly destroyed to be no more.Mankind will know the Goodness of our Maker, Who is, ironically, none other than the One most hated by Jews - Yeshua HaMashiach a.k.a. Jesus Christ.Victor Hafichuk

Is Physical Sabbath Keeping Necessary?

From: Brian Sent: July 3, 2021 11:39 PM To: Victor Hafichuk Subject: Physical Sabbath keeping, Law, Grace Hi Victor, I have to say something with regards to Sabbath keeping of which I believe The Lord gave me understanding. On 03/07/21 in the morning hours I was finishing reading about tithes and offerings from and the highlight for me was that The Lord loves a cheerful giver , one who gives not because he has to but because he wants to. I asked The Lord to give me a heart that gives willingly and cheerfully. Not that I was not willing but that I would always be a willing one, a cheerful one.Then as I relaxed on the bed, I was contemplating my attitude on Sabbath keeping. This 03/07/21 was a Saturday and I was keeping Sabbath as per your teaching. After pondering I came to the conclusion that I was keeping Sabbath not because I wanted to, or desired for that matter but because I had to. I was concerned. I remembered Paul the apostle had addressed the subject of law and faith and read through Romans10 and Galatians, especially from 2:11-...continuing. Then it became clear to me that keeping the Sabbath from Friday evening to Saturday evening is keeping the Law by works. I contemplated it and realised the physical keeping had nothing to do with faith but is a work. You have written on one of the articles on Sabbath from thepathoftruth, A section of it ...
