Sabbath isn’t linked to first day of week

Written by  Staff Writer

To the editor,
If someone were to read Revelation 1:10 in The New American Standard Bible, Reference Edition, Foundation Press publication, The Lockman Foundation, they would read, “I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet.”

Taking notice to reference marks, they would notice “the Lord’s day” is marked with a reference mark “b.” And if that someone knew the reason for those reference marks, that someone might turn to Acts 20:7, where that someone would find it written, “And on the first day of the week ... ” Now “the Lord’s day” of Revelation 1:10 probably has as much to do with the first day of the week as does Dec. 25 have to do with the birth of the Savior. Not a darn thing!

The reference mark “b” should have directed the read to Isaiah 2:11, where they would read, “The proud look of man will be abased. And the loftiness of man will be humbled. And (Yahweh) alone will be exalted in that day.” The teaching that the “Lord’s day” and the first day of the week are of one and the same Sabbath day is no more than an attempt to mislead and persuade.
The first day of the week is not sanctified by any specific command or by any inevitable inference. In all the New Testament there is no hint or suggestion of a change being made in Yahweh’s Law concerning his appointed Sabbath Day.
