Reasons for Sunday are not Biblical #6

by Bill Wong

 

 

 

In the previous part, Reason #5, we discussed the Bible truth that the Lord Jesus was not even raised on Sunday.  To make this error worse, the Roman Catholic Church also uses the Day of Pentecost to try to rationalize why it "thought it well to transfer" God's gift to us --- the Sabbath, which He made for man, to Sunday:

 

 

Reason #6 – Acts 2:1-4 (“the Feast of Weeks/Harvest (Pentecost) as evidence”)

 

As for God’s holy spirit falling upon the apostles in Acts 2:1-4, this happened on the Day of Pentecost:

 

1   When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2   And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.

3   Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.

4   And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

     And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.

   (NKJV)

 

 

The Day of Pentecost is an annual holy day/Sabbath which God gave to all mankind in Leviticus 23:15-21 and is called the Feast of Weeks or the Feast of Harvest. It requires counting 50 days (hence the name; Pentecost is “fiftieth”in Greek) starting on the day after the weekly Sabbath which falls during the Feast of Unleavened Bread and so will always land on Sunday. However, Pentecost comes only once a year and the date will always change.

The Roman Catholic Church is using an annual holy feast day of God as proof for its creating a “Lord’s day” for worship, when it is this same Roman Catholic Church that dismisses all of God’s holy days, including the Feast of Weeks/Harvest (Pentecost) and His Sabbath day, as “Jewish festivals and holy days” and worthless! Do we see the irony, hypocrisy, and deceit in all this?

 

Indeed, since God poured out His spirit on the Day of Pentecost, doesn’t this really mean that this annual Sabbath is not “Jewish” and worthless at all, but is holy unto God and for all His people – Jew and Christian, which is what God intended? And if it is not “Jewish” and is to be observed, then why is the 7th day Sabbath being made void since it is the very first and the greatest of all the holy days – sanctified above all days not just yearly, but every week (in Leviticus 23 it is given as first of the holy days of God)? If Pentecost is cited as a “legitimate” Jewish festival and holy day when God poured forth His spirit, then why is the Roman Catholic Church not observing all of God’s annual festivals and holy days?

 

Why is the Roman Catholic Church using Pentecost which is an annual Sabbath of God that comes only one Sunday a year as evidence for a new Sunday day of worship, but yet arbitrarily throws out the Sabbath day as ceremonial and Jewish, when it is the Sabbath day which is the only day God has sanctified since creation week and the beginning of time, and is the only day of which Jesus Christ is the Lord? (Matthew 12:8; Mark 2:28; Luke 6:5)?

 

Is this strange and illogical? Yes, but it is more than that. It is self-serving.

 

It is quite clear that the Roman Catholic Church will do and say anything, however contradictory and false it may be, to push Sunday observance upon everyone. But we have seen it has already boasted it is the creator of its own “law” of worshipping on Sunday, so we have lies and contradictions piled high atop of more lies and contradictions.
