Read Ezekiel 20:10-26! & Jude 5!
---Marc on 10/15/12


//AKA, there are enough sabbath blogs on CN.//

Agreed. so, there won't any more blog questions about obeying God's commandment which is usually a lead into that?

//There are also enough blogs on Michael the Arch angel on CN.//

agreed. there is never enough discussion on Jesus the Christ especially on those who might be lead to the idea that Michael is the Christ.

I observe Holy Sabbath from Friday-sundown to Saturday-sundown. But, I'm not Seventh-Day Adventist. I'm a Messianic Gentile Christian.
---Gordon on 9/23/12


AKA, there are enough sabbath blogs on CN. For those who do not wish to study sabbath from the bible, let me recommend a few booklets:

Feast Days and Sabbaths
By Joe Crew

Is Sunday Really Sacred?
By Joe Crews

Why God Said Remember
By Joe Crews

There are also enough blogs on Michael the Arch angel on CN. For those who want to discuss this from a biblical perspective,let me recommend:

Who Is Michael The Archangel?
by Doug Batchelor
---francis on 9/23/12


if you want to equate michael as the same jesus, then we are talking about two different saviors.
---aka on 9/21/12

Would you equate " the angel of God/ the Lord" which spoke to Moses in the burning bush, which lead Israel out of Egypt as the same as Jesus?

If the angel of God and Jesus are the same are we talk two different saviours?

We have been through all this before, AKA what exactly are you in search of here?

First a sabbath question, then a Michael question
---francis on 9/22/12




francis, i tried earlier to post at what sda site that i was reading, but the mods would not post it.

i do owe you a sincere apology. it is difficult to figure out what you are saying on this blog. but, i did find out what you believe and i learned why you seem so confusing. the use of scripture and the logic were indeed very dizzying.

but, if you want to equate michael as the same jesus, then we are talking about two different saviors. so, i recant. you will never say jesus is the christ without believing that michael is the christ and they are one in the same. (caveat: again, i may be confused because the site was nebulous also.)

So on friday night we are preparing for sabbath school in the morning, reviewing the weeks lesson

Couldn't that be classified as work?
---StrongAxe on 9/21/12

I see my wording error on the sunset post, and stand corrected.

Is reviewing the lesson work?

When the bible speaks about not working on the sabbath, it is talking about "servile work"

Matthew 12:5 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?

A variety of " work" is allowed on sabbath, mainly for the spiritual and physical good of humanity.

Absultely no work for profit can be done, but work by prophet can be done
---francis on 9/21/12


francis:

I was not questioning your chronology, merely your wording:

The day begins at sunset. So sunset on the 7th day is the end of the 6th day and the start of 7th day
Sunset on the 7th day is the end of the7th day and the start of the 1st day


The way you worded it, sunset on the 7th day (i.e. Saturday evening) was the transition BOTH from day 6 to day 7, AND from day 7 to day 1, which is absurd. I had assumed that it was a typo - that the first one should have said sunset on the 6th day.

KarenD: My apology blog was a sincere attempt at making amends overall, because I had no clue where the posts were that offended people. Therefore, I could not make direct amends to the people I had offended, which is my primary goal in apologizing.

As for my health issues, I do rejoice for a lot of things related to my health. However, we are also to bear one anothers' burdens, and sometimes I need specific prayer. I have a lot of gratitude where my health issues are concerned. I only have two life threatening health issues, the rest are painful nuisances which forced me to retire on Disability.

In spite of that, I still do volunteer work, ministering to others in and out of my church.
---Trish on 9/21/12


thanks, james. it's good to be your Blood brother.

//aka...posted this question to provoke an argument//

for months, i posed a straightaway question to sabbatarians regarding that they would not post. it was to make to a legitimate point. i have my suspicions why but i stay away from accusation unlike you.

//comments to numerous people on these blogs over the years//

too numerous for me to list, so i used one recent example. i only have 125.

//are you really Trish using the "aka"// and

and you call her post silly?//searching for an apology?//

i wasn't searching. i have finally got it through my head to stop fishing where there is only pollution.
---aka on 9/20/12




aka....Sorry about thinking you might be Trish.

Trish...I did not post on your self-serving apology blog because that is what it was. As far as your health issues, I believe we are to "rejoice in the Lord always" and not dwell on our fleshly problems. Why always complain? Why not rejoice!!!!!
---KarenD on 9/20/12


\\are you really Trish using the "aka" and searching for an apology?\\
---KarenD on 9/20/12


I hope I'm not speaking out of turn, but if aka is a girl, I've been duped.

aka and I share a commonality - both of us are single dads, and I consider him a friend.

Great brother in Christ, and I have valued his opinions and scriptural prowess ever since I met him.

He's not a girl. You have barked up the wrong tree, Karen.
---James_L on 9/20/12


Karen: Are you trying to provoke something with me. I am not aka. I do not post questions to stir up strife. I am too busy for that.

I'm sorry you thought my apology blog was silly. I posted that because I had been e-mailing a Moderator who pointed out to me that a few of my posts were inappropriate. Because I did not know what threads they were on, I had to apologize overall.

I believe in admitting I am wrong, and apologizing when I make mistakes and offend people. You have repeatedly offended me with your negative comments about my health, yet feel justified in making them none the less.
---Trish on 9/20/12


aka...You are the one who posted this question to provoke an argument. I find it strange that you would mention comments I have made to Trish since I have made comments to numerous people on these blogs over the years. And since Trish posted the silly apology blog which I did not post on, are you really Trish using the "aka" and searching for an apology?
---KarenD on 9/20/12


yet, over and over, i have proclaimed that jesus is the christ and no SDA would ever do that.

The prophet Daniel foretold the exact year that Jesus began His ministry and the exact year of His death. Daniel called Him the Messiah.

---francis on 9/20/12


, over and over, i have proclaimed that jesus is the christ and no SDA would ever do that.
---aka on 9/19/12

Where did you hear that?
You will have to say, "my bad..so sorry"

Because every SDA will proclaim that Jesus is themessiah. Where did you hear differently?

karenD, i never claimed to know you well. you were the one who was sure that i was spouting my SDA doctrine again. yet, over and over, i have proclaimed that jesus is the christ and no SDA would ever do that.

i know that you are married, attend a protestant-type judeo-christian church, and profess jesus christ. and, you like to fight with trish, but that has subsided.

Can't anybody just say, "my bad..so sorry" around here? is it that hard? even barb does that and she is much more rough than you are.
---aka on 9/19/12


KarenD,

i am not SDA. I am trying to point out to Sabbatarians, like SDA, that Sabbath is not just for a few hours on saturday.

you have been blogging for a few years, and i would think you would know by now. but, you like karend too much to see anyone else.

Since you know me so well, how old am I, where do I live and what denomination am I?

francis:

You said:
The day begins at sunset. So sunset on the 7th day is the end of the 6th day and the start of 7th day
Sunset on the 7th day is the end of the7th day and the start of the 1st day


As written, this means sunset on the 7th day begins BOTH the 7th and 1st days.
Did you mean to say:
So sunset on the 6th day is the end of the 6th day and the start of 7th day?

As the days are getting darker, and the end is drawing near, christians should be holding fellowship daily as commanded in the bible.

Yes, I do. Everyday and wherever two or more are gathered in Jesus' name. I leave the house at five fifteen in the morning and usually don't get home until eight thirty in the evening. Do an online KJV bible search of the words "one another", "each other", "comfort", and "encourag".

but, shouldn't you already be prepared for all of sabbath and not just the saturday part of sabbath?
---aka on 9/17/12

Your question asked about friday night, which is sabbath already.
So on friday night we are preparing for sabbath school in the morning, reviewing the weeks lesson.

We start preparing for next sabbath as soon as the sabbath is over.
1 Cor 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store...,
Exodus 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

we use thursday ( friday daytime) as preparation day for sabbath specifically, Iron clothes, cook meals, and so on
Luke 23:54 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.

Hi, aka (c: What's up, Friday night? On any usual evening, I talk with a phone friend and we have prayer and the Bible. And I write on the Net, about Jesus and the Bible, and when I'm done writing I cook and eat while watching some "tv" on the Internet. And get to bed maybe about midnight.

When my kids were all younger, we'd have family game nights, or movie nights. Make some old fashioned homemade popcorn on top of the stove, which is cheaper and better tasting than microwave popcorn, and get the board games out. Back then, we rented VHS videos and always got a family flick to watch together. We couldn't afford the movie theaters then. While watching the movie, we'd discuss the story line, and see if the kids could anticipate what would happen next. Another suggestion we sometimes did was build your own pizzas. We'd get Boboli pizza crusts and jar sauce and cheese, pepperoni and vegetables, and make personal pizzas.
