Resurrection did not occur on Sunday,occurred sunset Saturday
(Spirit Lake, Idaho USA)
The problem with calling Sunday the "Lord's Day" is that the resurrection did not occur on Sunday, nowhere in the Bible does it say that it occurred on Sunday. Jesus himself said in Matthew 12:39 & 40 that the only sign that would be given to an "evil and adulterous generation" is that he would be in the tomb for three days and three nights. You can't get three nights out of a Friday crucifixion/Sunday resurrection, the most you can get is two nights.
Daniel 9:27 says the crucifixion would happen in the "midst of the week". The original scripture of Mark 16:1 is "after the SabbathS WERE past", but they thought it was a mistake so they translated it as a singular "Sabbath". So, there were two Sabbaths between the crucifixion and resurrection, the yearly Sabbath of the Feast of Unleaven Bread, which occurred on Thursday of that week, and the weekly Sabbath of Saturday. So, the crucifixion happened on Wednesday, fulfilling the Daniel 9:27 prophecy of the "midst of the week", and he was in the tomb Wednesday night, Thursday night, and Friday night (three nights), all day Thursday, all day Friday, and all day Saturday (three days), and the resurrection occurred a few minutes before sunset on Saturday, EXACTLY 72 hours after he had been put in the tomb. The SPECIFIC reason Jesus spoke the prophecy of "three days and three nights", was to give people NO REASON to observe Sunday as a special day. The Bible only says that they found the tomb empty Sunday morning, but when they found it empty he had already been gone by 9 or 10 hours. The false churches ASSUME things that are not true, and when you ASSUME, and I believe the assumption, you make an ASS out of U and ME.
If the apostles stopped resting on the 7th day, they were sinning. And if a person says they "sanctify EVERY day", that means they never get any work done and are a lazy person. No, the apostles rested on the 7th day their entire lives. It was not until Constantine changed the day to Sunday to appease the Sun worshippers, and combined paganism with Christianity and became the first Pope, and started the Catholic church, that Sunday became a common observance among people who CLAIM to be Christian, but are not. Just like Revelation 2:9 says, "....who say they are Jews (Christians), but are the synogogue of Satan". So, if a person calls Sunday the "Lord's Day", their "Lord" is not Jesus, but Satan. God's Commandments NEVER change, and the whole UNIVERSE observes the Ten Commandments, including the 7th day Sabbath. So, in multiples of 7 from the Creation week, whenever the Earth spins through the 7th day, the other Beings of God are resting also. Satan has deceived the world into thinking that God's Commandments are not necessary.
By the way, the reason Jesus said an "evil and adulterous generation" in Matthew 12:39 & 40 is because "evil" is to do as Eve did, to use human reasoning to disobey God (under Satan's influence). So, man uses his own reason to give God the finger about the Sabbath COMMANDMENT and say, "NO, I will call a different day a special day", and use false and faulty reasoning to condone it. If God would have wanted us to change the day, or to consider Sunday as a "special" day, he would have given us a Commandment to do so, but you will find it nowhere in the Bible, which even the Catholic church admits. Even the Catholic church (which goes largely by tradition), says, "If a person goes ONLY by the scriptures of the Bible they would LOGICALLY become a Seventh Day Adventist, as there is no command to observe the first day of the week, which is an institution of the Catholic church". They also say that if a person considers Sunday as a special day the are obeying the Pope (so they are a "Popian" not a "Christian"). Resting on the 7th day IDENTIFIES the creator of the universe as your "God". It aligns you with the creator, and shows you are on "His side". It's as simple as that.
