Seventh-Day Adventism


       The Seventh-day Adventist denomination arose from the aftermath of the adventist movement of the mid-1800s. “Seventh-day” refers to the focus on sabbath worship. “Adventist” refers to their belief that they are the fulfillment of prophecies pertaining to the latter days remnant and the coming of Christ. The name Seventh-day Adventist was officially adopted in 1860. The writings of Ellen G. White (1827-1915) are exalted as prophecy in the Adventist movement. There are 5.3 million members worldwide in 27,700 SDA churches. There are more than 700,000 Adventists in the U.S. and Canada. They claim to be working in 610 languages and dialects. The SDA has a large investment in publishing and education. They operate 56 publishing houses, and support 518 medical units, 51 nurses’ schools, 767 colleges and secondary schools, and 4,500 elementary schools. There are more than 4,600 weekly radio and television broadcasts in 80 languages. More than 6 million students are enrolled in Bible correspondence courses (Handbook).

       Seventh-day Adventism originated with the disappointed adventist movement of the 1800’s. William Miller, a Baptist layman, came to the conclusion in 1818 that Christ would return to earth in the fall of 1844. This belief was based largely on an interpretation of Daniel chapters nine and twelve using the erroneous day/year prophetic equation (one prophetic day equals one historical year). A large number of people followed Miller’s conclusions, and many diverse, unscriptural adventist (advent refers to Christ’s coming) groups sprang up within this excited atmosphere.

       Until the end of 1844 Miller held resolutely to his conviction that Christ would return to the earth to “cleanse the sanctuary,” which he interpreted to mean the earth. After the set dates were come and gone, Miller wisely left off with date setting and no longer participated in the Adventist movement. He did not become a Seventh-day Adventist



       Ellen White’s father, Robert Harmon, was a follower of William Miller. As a result of their acceptance of adventist theories, the Harmons, Ellen included, were disciplined dropped a the Methodist church in Portland, Maine, in 1843 (D.A. Delafield, Ellen G. White and the S.D.A., p. 87). Ellen had made a personal commitment to Adventism during a sermon by Miller, and at age 17 she began receiving visions concerning this movement. This began soon after October 1844, the last date which had been set by Miller and his followers, and in these visions many Adventists saw the leading hand of God in answer to their bewilderment and desperation. The teenage girl was commanded by the revealing “angel” to proclaim the visions to others, and as she did so a following of Adventists rallied around her as a prophetess of God.

       Seventh-day Adventism was guided both in its doctrine and practice by this female voice, believed to possess the gift of prophecy and to be an inspired commentator of Scripture. Note the following quotation from a SDA publication:

“Mrs. White’s pre-eminent mission was to help build the dynamics of a Biblical faith into a Christian movement. The Seventh-day Adventist Church is indebted to her as a spiritual leader and a pioneer builder and guide. In most of the soul-winning activities of the church, from its very beginnings, the leaders received guidance from what they believed were the prophetic insights of this servant of God” (Ellen G. White and the SDA Church, pp. 10-11).

       Ellen Harmon married James White on August 30, 1846, and became a Sabbath-keeper soon after. The Whites had four children–all boys–and they worked together to establish the Adventist movement until James’ death in October 1881. Often James and Ellen would speak at the same meetings. Ellen lived and labored for thirty-four years following James’ death. Eleven of those years were spent in Europe and Australia, helping establish the SDA movement in those


       The SDA hold her writings as a source of truth equal to the Bible. Ellen White is the author of several books in which she claims to have been given revelations from God. However, many have read and researched her writings and have found that nearly all of them have been plagiarized, or taken from someone else’s earlier writings, which she had claimed to be original and that God gave her the words to write. On one occasion an entire book was copied from another author and she was charged with infringing on their copyrights, but eluded conviction of the charge.

The SDA have even their own version of the Bible, “The Clear Word Bible”, in which Ellen Whites writings and insights are integrated throughout it. For example, in the book of Daniel alone there are over 300 words added to it. Daniel was a prophet of God himself and he did not need the help of a woman to interpret what God meant him to say, what an atrocity. 




       NO! She is not. If she were she would proclaim the true Gospel as it was once delivered, (Jude 3), she would be silent in the Church, she would not be tampering with God’s Word, and she would be able to pass the test of a true prophet in Deuteronomy 18:18-22. Since her prophecies are proven to be failures, NO, she is not a prophet of God. Also all of her writings would be consistent and complementary with the Bible instead of contradictory. (A list of all of her prophecies are available upon request at the address at the end of this article.)

Indeed she is found to be a false prophet, and even proclaiming similar doctrines contrary to Biblical Christianity, such as Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and Christian Science, the world’s leading religious cults.



       YES! They are. SDA hold the some of the same beliefs as Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons, such as, 1) Christ’s atonement incomplete or insufficient.  2) That Jesus is Michael the Archangel. 3) No literal Hell, among other things, such as soul sleep.

       It is no big surprise seeing that they have common roots, Charles T. Russell (JW’s founder) co-authored a book with SDA author N. H. Barbour.  Two early  SDA  pioneers  James White  and  Uriah  Smith   both denied the deity of Jesus Christ. SDA and Jehovah’s Witnesses both have their own altered version of the Bible to reflect their strange doctrines. Both have set dates of Christ’s return, and have predicted (many) events that never came to pass.  Both have made up things to cover up errors, and have been guilty of plagiarizing other’s writings. All of the above have built their religion on their founder, not Jesus Christ, and each organization was formed within 100 yrs. of each other.

SDA Rules On The 5 Marks Of A Cult Or False Religion Include:

  • Cults and false religions usually have a single, powerful, human leader who in some cases becomes their messiah. (Ellen G. White)
  • Their teachings become absolute truth overshadowing the teachings of the Bible.(Ellen G. White’s writings and teachings)
  • Each cult has pressure tactics to coerce its members into submission. (they practice shunning of those who reject E.G. Whites teachings)
  • Each cult denies the central truth of the Gospel that Jesus is the Divine Son of God without beginning or ending. They deny that His death has provided salvation for the entire human race, as a result, salvation is earned by the adhering to the teachings of the cult rather than accepting Christ and following Him. (originally they deny the deity of Jesus, today they believe that Christ is eternal but to go back and mark the change would make them have to acknowledge that Ellen White made a mistake)
  • Cults often urge their converts to leave their families. (this is the only point that does not apply to the SDA)




What about Sabbath Keeping? Is it for today? Does it have anything to do with Worship?  We know God threatened it in the Old Testament:

I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.      Hosea 2:11


Examine why Christians meet on Sunday to Worship –

Partial outline from the book “THE SABBATH & SUNDAY” 

 by Pastor J. Mark Martin


WHEN THE COUNSEL OF ACTS 15 CONVENED to determine what Gentile Christians must observe, SABBATH KEEPING IS CONSPICUOUSLY ABSENT. Peter exhorts the leadership of the Church not to place the Gentiles under the Law:

Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.      Acts 15:10-11


The final judgment of the Jerusalem Council contains no reference to Sabbath keeping. Circumcision was discussed and deemed unnecessary (vss. 5-6; 19-20). If Sabbath keeping were to be an essential part of the New Covenant relationship with God it would have been mentioned in the discussion because it would have been an unfamiliar practice to the Gentiles. Sabbath keeping was not even discussed because it is not a requirement for New Covenant believers:

For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.    Acts 15:28-29


       The 7 post-resurrection appearances of Christ show that Jesus purposefully chose the first day of the week to meet with His disciples to encourage and exhort them. The evidence shows that five of these appearances occurred on a Sunday, the first day of the week. We do no have a record of what the actual day on which the other appearances (John 21 and Acts 1:6-10) occurred to His disciples. What we can say with accuracy is this, after Jesus’ resurrection whenever He met with His disciples and the day is identified, it is NOT the Sabbath, it is the first day of the week!

1). To Mary, On the morning of the resurrection – Matthew 28:8-10; Mark 16:9; John 20:11-18

2). To two disciples going to Emmaus – Luke 24:13-33; Mark 16:12-13

3). To Simon (Peter) – Luke 24:31-35.

4). To the eleven disciples on the evening of Resurrection Sunday – Mark 16:14-18; Luke 24:36-44; John 20:19-23

5). To the Eleven disciples “Eight days later” – John 20:26-29


 Pentecost happened on the first day of the week! The Church was born on the first day of the week! That doesn’t make Sunday the Sabbath, it just tells you that after the resurrection of Jesus, the Sabbath is not emphasized.

       When a day is mentioned in connection with the appearances of the risen Lord Jesus, it is always the first day of the week. Look at the extremely important events that occurred in the life of the first followers of Christ on the first day of the week.

1). Jesus startled them by appearing to them on the first day (John 20:19).

2). Jesus received worship from Thomas (John 20:27-28).

3). Sunday evening Jesus took bread and blessed it and broke it and gave it to His disciples evidently like He had in instituting the communion meal (Luke 22:19) and their “eyes were opened and they recognized Him” (Luke 24:31).

4). Sunday evening Jesus blessed His disciples twice saying “Peace be with you” (John 20:20; 26).

5). That same Sunday evening Jesus “…breathed on them and said, ‘receive the Holy Spirit'” John 20:22.

6). On Sunday evening Jesus gave His disciples the ecclesiastical authority to proclaim forgiveness to those who believe in Him through the Gospel (John 20:23).


NOTE: Why did the Disciples meet on Sunday?

1). Because it now carried a special symbolic/anti-typical significance for them

2). Even if it didn’t and was by chance, –Jesus still chose to reveal Himself to them only on Sunday, when we know what day it is. That must also hold some kind of Divine significance.

3). Jesus could have chosen to meet with His disciple on the Sabbath. This would have clearly set a New Covenant precedent. He did not choose to do this. The Sabbath was the sign of a fulfilled covenant (see Exodus 31:17 & Hebrews 8:13).


1). To worship the Lord God only (1st commandment): no less than 50 times
2). Idolatry (2nd commandment): condemned 12 times
3). Profanity (3rd commandment): condemned 4 times
4). Honoring parents (5th commandment) is taught 6 times
5). Murder (6th commandment) condemned 6 times
6). Adultery (7th commandment) condemned 12 times
7). Theft (8th commandment) condemned 4 times
8). False Witness (9th commandment) condemned 4 times
9). Covetousness (10th commandment) condemned 9 times

       Why is it that the duty to keep the Seventh day as Sabbath is not mentioned ONCE in the New Testament?


In Mark 7:21-22 13 sins are listed. Jesus did not mention breaking the Sabbath.  In Romans 1:29-32 20 sins are listed and not one of them is Sabbath breaking. In Galatians 5:19-21 a list of 15 sins are given,  In 2 Timothy 3:1-4 there’s a list of 18 sins, but not once is Sabbath breaking mentioned!


-Why is it that nowhere in the New Testament is failure to keep the Sabbath day condemned as sin?

-Why is the fourth commandment itself not repeated even ONCE in the New Testament?

-If the Sabbath keeping is so important for a disciple of Christ, why was it not mentioned in His sermon on the Mount or in ANY of His teachings?

-Why didn’t Jesus command Sabbath keeping?

-Why didn’t any of the Apostles command Sabbath keeping?

-Why didn’t the Jerusalem counsel command Sabbath keeping or condemn Sabbath breaking? (Acts 15)

       Some answer that the Jews already knew about the Sabbath so it was taken for granted that they would continue to keep it, but then why were the other nine commandments reiterated? Would they not be taken for granted as well? It would also seem that with so many Gentiles coming into the Church, that if keeping the Sabbath was so important there would be instruction in the New Testament Epistles somewhere concerning it. There are instructions for them concerning morality, ethics, worship, Church order and family lifestyle. Why would something as important as Sabbath keeping be ignored? Circumcision, which predates the Law and the Sabbath commandment was an issue in the New Testament Church and is addressed repeatedly in the New Testament Epistles and by the Jerusalem Counsel.

       Sabbath keepers argue that it is the example of Jesus that gives us the reason for keeping the Sabbath. “He kept the Sabbath, so I must keep the Sabbath. Jesus is my example,” they say. Well this kind of reasoning is flawed because it only chooses Jesus’ Sabbath keeping and rejects the rest of His Jewish lifestyle. Jesus also kept Kosher laws. He kept the Passover, Sukkot, Hanukkah, and worshipped in the temple. Are we to follow everything He did?

Galatians 4:4-5 says that Jesus lived under the Law to redeem us from the Law.

But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.      Galatians 4:4-5

JESUS WAS ALSO ACCUSED OF SABBATH BREAKING. Why, if He wanted to be our “example” in Sabbath keeping didn’t He make it clear that He was not breaking the Sabbath? Instead He clearly admits to it. He also admits that His disciples were breaking the Sabbath and He defends them.                                                                                                              

Read Matthew 12:1- 14 carefully. Jesus is clearly saying that His disciples are like the priests who may work in the temple every Sabbath and be innocent of breaking the Sabbath. When Jesus says that He is “Lord of the Sabbath” He is declaring that He is above the Sabbath. He may do what He wishes on the Sabbath and therefore His disciples may do whatever they wish as well.

Apparently Jesus did break the Sabbath:

Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. John 9:16

       If Jesus did not want us to understand that He was breaking the Sabbath why did He not speak against these accusations. It’s because Jesus had the right and the authority to break the Sabbath because He is Lord of the Sabbath. The Sabbath does not bind Him. Think about this, if it does not bind Him, are we not “in Christ”? Why would it be any more binding upon us. (Again Read Matthew 12:1-14 carefully).

       One of the issues that needs to be honestly faced is the fact that Jesus never commanded anyone to keep the Sabbath and none of His apostles ever commanded anyone to keep it either. Not once in the New Testament are we told to keep the Sabbath. Those commands to the Church are conspicuously absent from the teachings of the New Testament.

       EVERY MENTION OF THE SABBATH IN THE BOOK OF ACTS without a single exception is in connection with Jewish worship on that day and not Christian celebration. Paul’s evangelistic strategy was to go to the Jews first in a community and share the Gospel with them. Sabbath is the day when he knew he would find the most Jews gathering for worship. He knew he would have his best opportunity of sharing the good news of the Messiah to the Jews on Sabbath. It was not because he was meeting with a group of believing Christians. He was meeting with non-Christian Jews.


And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:      Mark 2:27.    Sabbatarians often use this verse to say that the Sabbath was made for all mankind, but the text doesn’t say that. It doesn’t say, “The Sabbath was made for “mankind”, it says, “the Sabbath was made for man”. When the Scripture is meant to be inclusive of all mankind it is clear. See Matthew 28:19; John 3:16; Acts 2:17; I Timothy 2:4; Titus 2:11. These verses clearly indicate that when God offers something to all mankind He clearly offers it to all.                                                                                                       

The Sabbath was not offered to all the nations. It was given only to the nation of Israel. Look at Deuteronomy 5:1-15 which gives the commandments to Israel. It is clearly stated that God did not give the Sabbath or other commandments to the fathers before (see verses 2-3).


NO “BURGER KING” SABBATHS – You can’t “Have It Your Way” with the Sabbath. God specifies how it was to be kept.

-It was to be kept from sunset to sunset (Lev. 23:32)
-No burden was to be carried (Jer. 17:21)
-No fire kindled (Ex. 35:3)
-No Cooking done (Ex. 16:23)
-The penalty for doing any of these things during the Sabbath was DEATH (Numbers 15).

THE ASSERTION BY SABBATARIANS THAT AT THE COUNCIL OF LAODICEA THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH changed the Sabbath from the Seventh day to the First day is not true. The Sabbath was not changed at that Council.

       What did take place at that Council was an anti-semetic move to make it illegal for a Christian to worship on Saturday. But one needs to note that there were thousands of Christians already worshipping on Sunday, the first day of the week. Many in the early Church worshipped on Sunday:

       “Anti-Judaism played its part in second-century Christian polemic against Jewish Sabbath observance, but it does not follow that it motivated the introduction of Christian Sunday worship. For we have already argued that Sunday worship dates back to the first century, while few second-century writers compare and contrast the Jewish Sabbath and the Christian Sunday. Derogatory discussions of the Jewish Sabbath do not usually refer to the Christian Sunday. If Sunday were a recent substitute for the Jewish Sabbath, we should expect far more discussion of the superiority of Sunday to the Sabbath.” R. J. Bauckham, From Sabbath to Lord’s Day, p. 271, edited by D.A. Carson.


THE EPISTLE OF BARNABAS about A.D. 100 – “Wherefore, also we keep the eighth day with joyfulness, the day also on which Jesus rose again from the dead.”

THE EPISTLE OF IGNATIUS – A.D. 107 – “Be not deceived with strange doctrines, nor  with  old fables, which are unprofitable.  For if  we still  live

according  to the  Jewish  Law,  we acknowledge that we have not received grace….If, therefore, those who were brought up in the ancient order of things have come to the possession of a new hope, no longer observing the Sabbath, but living in the observance of the Lord’s Day, on which also our life has sprung up again by Him and By His death.”

THE WRITINGS OF JUSTIN MARTYR: A.D. 145-150 – “And on the day called Sunday all who live in cities or in the country gather together in one place, and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read….But Sunday is the day on which we all hold a common assembly, because it is the first day of the week on which God…made the world; and Jesus Christ our Savior on the same day rose from the dead.”

APOSTOLIC CONSTITUTIONS: Church life in the 2nd Century: – “On the day of the resurrection of the Lord–that is, the Lord’s Day–assemble yourself together without fail, giving thanks to God and praising Him for those mercies God has bestowed upon you through Christ.”

IRENEAEUS: A.D. 155-202 – “The Mystery of the Lord’s Resurrection may not be celebrated on any other day than the Lord’s Day, and on this alone should we observe the breaking off of the Paschal Feast.”


“Often the question is asked, “Isn’t it paying homage to the Roman Catholic church to worship on Sunday because didn’t Constantine change the day of worship?”

It is claimed that Constantine’s edict of March 7, 321 changed the day. Constantine’s edict reads:

“On the venerable Day of The Sun [venerablili dei Solis] let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country, however, persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits Codex Justinianus, book 3, title 12,3, trans. in Schaff, History of the Christian Church 5th ed. (New York: Charles Scribner, 1902), vol. 3, p. 380, note 1.


Pliny was governor of Bithynia, in Asia Minor, from AD 106-108. He wrote in AD 107 to Trajan, the emperor, concerning the Christians. This is what he said:

       They were wont to meet  together,  on a stated day  before  it  was  light, and sing among themselves alternately a hymn to Christ as God….When these things were performed, it was their custom to separate and then to come together again to a meal which they ate in common without any disorder.”

       We know the day the early church broke bread on was Sunday. “Upon the first day of the week when the disciples came together to break bread” Acts 20:7.

IN AD 120 THE EPISTLE OF BARNABAS says in chapter 2:…”Incense is a vain abomination unto me, and your new moons and Sabbaths I cannot endure. He has, therefore, abolished these things.

When he speaks of the first day of the week, Barnabas says: “Wherefore, also, we keep the eighth day with joyfulness, the day, also, on which Jesus rose again from the dead” Chapter 25.

JUSTIN MARTYR (140 AD)……..Justin’s ‘Apology’ was written at Rome about the year 140, only 44 years after the apostle John received the vision of The Revelation at Patmos.

The Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge says this about Justin’s works:

“In these works Justin professes to present the system of doctrine held by all Christians and seeks to be orthodox on all points. The only difference he knows of as existing between Christians concerned the millennium. Thus Justin is an incontrovertible witness for the unity of the faith in the Church of his day, and the fact that the Gentile type of Christianity prevailed.” Quoted by Canright in The Compete Testimony of the Early Fathers, Fleming H. Revell, 1916, pp. 24-25.

NOTE: At this early date, AD 140, the only major difference among Christians was concerning the millennium. At that time they had no disagreement in keeping Sunday, and as you will see, Justin says that was the day on which all Christians worshipped.

In chapter 67 of his first Apology, entitled, “Weekly Worship of the Christians,” writing to the pagan emperor, Justin states:

“…we bless the Maker of all through His Son Jesus Christ, and through the Holy Ghost. And on the day called Sunday, all who live in cities or in the country gather together to one place, and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read, as long as time permits; then, when the reader  has ceased,  the president verbally instructs, and  exhorts to  the

imitation of these good things. Then we all rise together and pray, and, as we before said, when our prayer is ended, bread and wine and water are brought…But Sunday is the day on which we all hold our common assembly, because it is the first day on which God, having wrought the change in the darkness and matter, made the world; and Jesus Christ our Savior on the same day rose from the dead.” The Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol. 1, pp. 185-186 (emphasis added).


Dionysius was Bishop of Corinth, the Church which Paul raised up and to which he gave the command about Sunday collections, in I Corinthians 16:1-2. He says:

We passed this holy Lord’s Day, in which we read your letter, from the constant reading of which we shall be able to draw admonition.” Eusebius, Ecclesiastical History, Bk. 4,  Chapt. 23 (emphasis added).

TERTULLIAN of Africa wrote around AD 200:

In his Apology, Chapter 16, Tertullian says:

“We solemnize the day after Saturday in contradistinction to those who call this day their Sabbath, and devote it to ease and eating, deviating from the old Jewish customs, which they are now very ignorant of.”

“Others, with greater regard to good manners, it must be confessed, suppose that the sun is the god of the Christian, because it is a well- known fact that we pray towards the east, or because we make Sunday a day of festivity  The Ante-Nicene Fathers, vol. 3, p. 123 (emphasis added).

NOTE: The early church explained why they prayed toward the east. It was because, “as the lightning which lighteneth from the east and is seen even to the west, so shall the coming of the Son of man be:” that by this we might know and understand that He will appear from the east suddenly” Ancient Syriac Documents, The Ante- Nicene Fathers, vol. 8, p. 668.


An unbiased reading of Colossians 2:16 will show that this is talking about not just “ceremonial Sabbaths.” The words “ton sabbaton” or “sabbath days”; are the same words translated “Sabbath day” in Exodus 20:8 in the Septuagint (the Jewish translation of the Old Testament into Greek).Look at Paul’s reasoning, “Let no one judge you regarding a,

  • festival – yearly Sabbaths,
    • a new moon – monthly Sabbaths,
  • or a Sabbath day – weekly Sabbaths (or if you wish Sabbath days)”
    CHRIST, he goes on to say is the “Substance”, these things were shadows.

       When this passage is compared with Galatians 4:9 an obvious connection in Paul’s teaching is revealed:

   But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.

Verse 10 flatly states, “you observe…”,

  • days (weekly Sabbaths, corresponding to “Sabbath days in Colossians 2)
    • months (new moons, corresponding to “a new moon” in Colossians 2)
    • times (the 7 feasts, corresponding to “festivals” in Colossians 2)
    • and years (the sabbatical year and the 50th year of Jubilee)

       Obviously Paul is clearing speaking about the observances of all Jewish holy day, including the Sabbath.


LEVITICUS 23:5-11 – Look at verse 11:

And he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.

       –The day after the Sabbath is Sunday.

Read on specifically looking at Leviticus 23:15 – 16;

And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:  Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the Lord.

   This is the Feast of Pentecost. It was one of the compulsory feasts of Israel.

Note on the day of Pentecost, a Sunday God’s people were commanded to worship. God says,

And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.    Leviticus 23:21

If you think this is only applying to “ceremonial” days, Leviticus 23 starts out talking about the weekly Sabbath (see Lev. 23:1-4). It is called an appointed time and a holy convocation, along with all the other feast days of Israel. No distinction is made by God between these holy days and the weekly Sabbath. He includes them as being equally holy. This would mean that under the Old Covenant the First Fruits Sunday and the Pentecost Sunday were as holy and sanctified as Saturday.

       If you think this only applies to Israel, that’s our point. The Ten Commandment Covenant, –the Old Covenant was made with Israel, and NOT with the Gentiles.
