Paul gave the order for every church that on the first day of the week; Sunday, at church service, they were to take the portion from the bounty collected to set that aside so that there will be no special collection when a missionary or Paul comes in providing for those in outward ministry.Prologue:
AV Re 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
A theocracy coming to the whole earth soon.
A government promoting Sunday worship, is it a theocracy then ???
A government condemning Sabbath worship found in Jesus' righteousness, is it a theocracy then ???
From a prophetic point of view reasoning with you:
Is Jesus greater than first / sun day rest, in the righteousness defined by men, in the laws of men ???
Because you can defend that with GOD's Words, for the coming Sunday Death Decree(A counterfeit to sabbath death penalty in the OT.) to men, who will not submit to the authority of men over the authority of GOD, Right ???
Yours in Christ, Michael
1 Corinthians 16:1Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
Does that mean it is wrong to honor Him on the sabbath? No, because Paul had written this.
Romans 14:4 Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. 5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. 6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. 7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. 8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
We are the Lord's. It is wrong for you to judge a brother for worshiping on Sunday and it is wrong for any brother to judge you for worshiping on a Saturday. When you judge another brother for honoring Him on a Sunday or any other day of the week than Saturday, you are denying that brother as the Lord's and thereby denying Him as his Savior for coming to & believing in Jesus Christ.
We can honor Him any day of the week because we are the Lord's. He is in us and with us always so we are to walk in the light in fellowship with the Father & the Son. Until you see how He has saved you for why you are guiltless under the New Covenant, you are lacking joy in your salvation.
