The Lord's Day?

John in Revelation 1 talks of how he was in the spirit on the Lords Day. Now since Sunday Christians speak of the Lord's day as their sabbath day what is John talking about, because he was a true follower of God and adhered to the true Sabbath.

I am Seventh Day Adventist and trying to figure this one out.

  • In Mexico and parts of Europe the week begins on Monday and Sunday would be the 7th day of the week.

    Remember calendars are man made. I have a home made calendar with Tuesday being the first of the week because that is when my husband starts the work week.

  • and the 7th day of the week in many places is Sunday, so why does America have to be right? Why aren't the other calendars right?

  • why does it matter which day? i tend to think God knows your heart and is more concerned with that, rather than which day you attend worship.

  • Early Christians (including John) were honoring the “Lords Day” which they believed was the day which Christ rose i.e. Sunday. See acording to the Jewish Midrash, (The Midrash is a Jewish commentary on Biblical Texts written by Jews.) Gentiles were NEVER expected or desired to keep the Sabbath unless they were circumcised and converted to Judaism. This explains why Gentiles never kept the Sabbath, and why the Jewish Christians didn’t expect them to keep it. So, when Peter and the early church council ruled that Gentiles did not have to be circumcised, they effectually ruled that gentiles are under no obligation to keep the Sabbath. This is one of the reasons that Catholics and other Christians no longer observe the Jewish Sabbath.

  • I don't think God cares which day or what you call it he is more interested in you taking a day and devoting it to him. You could make Thursday your Sabbath if that's what works for you. (IMO)

    so obviously you're not asking this question to understand more about those who worship or go to church on Sunday otherwise you wouldn't have made that statement. My church has services on Saturday and Sundays. If it was only on Sundays the devil has nothing to do with that. As a matter of fact, as long as people are coming together to worship and serve God is what's important, not the day of the week. Move on from this type of question you ask it constantly.... first u say ur confused then u say u want more info or understanding then u say it's the devils work.... make up ur mind. u are one very confused person and u need to seek God for truth. Read ur Word... read the letters in red "Jesus". Praying 4 u.
