I had been to church on Sundays with my friend. One day she said she came to know the Sabbath day in the Bible wasn’t Sunday but Saturday so decided to attend the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) which observes the Sabbath day on Saturdays. I told her it is a law of the Old Testament and Jewish and it has been changed to Sunday from the New Testament. However she was sure what she heard and checked.
I asked her to show me what she was saying. At that time both of us didn’t have the Bible and she showed me a website (http://wmscog.com) with her cell phone. There I saw the Sabbath day in the Bible is the seventh day that is Saturday. I was surprised at the fact that Jesus and early church also kept it in the New Testament. Furthermore what made me really shocked was the history that Roman Emperor, Constantine decreed Sunday as the legal day of worship in AD 321 and made worship on Saturday illegal.
Actually I didn’t show her my feeling and pretended not to be interested in it. But I said to myself “Have I diligently held fast man-made rule instead of Jesus’ commandment every week? Why haven’t I ever tried to know why I have to go to church on Sundays?” I visited the website again at home and read it carefully by checking with my Bible. After that, prophecy in Isaiah 56:6-7 kept running through my head.
Isaiah 56:6-7 (CEV) Foreigners will follow me. They will love me and worship in my name; they will respect the Sabbath and keep our agreement. I will bring them to my holy mountain, where they will celebrate in my house of worship.
I thought a lot about God’s commandments for a while. Finally I visited the WMSCOG with my friend and confirmed the true worship day is Saturday, not Sunday through the Bible and how it was changed to Sunday by man through history. It was truly the clear and perfect truth! Since then I also have been celebrating the true Sabbath day with joy in WMSCOG. I’m so happy to find the resting place of my soul.
