Where Does Sunday Worship Come From?I was raised as a Baptist. As I got older certain things began to not add up. Even though I read that we were to remember the Sabbath day I had no idea what that even meant. As an adult I began to research it. Where does this come from? There is no scriptural basis for it. So I ask myself why are we worshiping on Sunday. It would be years later before I had the answer. This information I am about to share with you can be found at your local library or on the internet.
BackgroundTo find the answers we must go back in history. Way back. The bible records Noah’s great great grandson Nimrod became a great and mighty one upon the earth. Gen 10:8 And Cush begot Nimrod he began to be a mighty one in the earth. Cush was the son of Ham who was one of Noah’s sons. The bible does not speak of him very much as Nimrod. He was the king of Babylon and it was he that instructed the tower of Babel. He soon reached god status by man and was worshiped as the chief deity in the Babylonian society. Shem Noah’s righteous son killed nimrod and strew his body all over the land as a warning to end worship of him. His wife then gathered his body parts but cold not retrieve his penis. She said without it he could not come back to life. She told the kingdom that he had then became the sun and was the sun god. After his Death Nimrods wife became pregnant “by the rays of the sun:” so she says and gave birth to Tammuz. His birthday is December 25th. She then became known as the mother of god and he then was the son of god. She and the baby began to be worshiped as deities and mother child worship begins. These “gods” have many names. When the language was confused at Babel the gods remain the same but the names were changed due to the language confusion. Nimrod or Baal was also called Bel, Baalat, Molech, Merodach, Mars and Jupiter, and was frequently represented as a bull. Nimrods wife Ishtar was also called Aphrodite, Astarte, Ashtoreth, Cybele or Sybil, Diana, Europa, Isis, Eostra. Semiramis and Venus. The two main elements in the worship of Baal were fire and human sacrifice, usually children.
ConstantineNow we know where the worship of the sun comes from, but in where does this Sunday worship come from? We owe that to a man named Constantine. The first “Christian” emperor. He was not a Christian but he was a worshiper of Mythra which is the Roman version of Nimrod. While claiming to be a Christian maintained the title "Pontifus Maximus" the high priest of paganism. His coins were inscribed: "SOL INVICTO COMITI" (COMMITTED TO THE INVINCIBLE SUN). Constantine, on March 7, 321 A.D. commanded that all judges and city people and the craftsman shall rest upon the venerable day of the sun. (Canon 29) Christians must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath but must work on that day, rather honoring the Lords Day; and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ. (Wait a minute, wasn't Jesus a Torah observant Jew?)
Now we have a date for when the “church” began to worship on Sunday. It was not at the prayer meeting held by Paul. It was not after Pentecost. Up until Constantine changed and decreed it to be Sunday all Christians worshiped on Sabbath just as God had instructed at the beginning of creation.
We Must Keep God's CommandmentsJesus came to this world as the word made flesh. He was the Torah made flesh. He lived the Torah and taught himself through using the Torah.
1Jn 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
1Jn 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
1Jn 2:5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
1Jn 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
1Jn 2:7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
Joh 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Joh 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
It's Just Not ThereThere is no commandment to keep the first day of the week holy. There was no "great proclamation" that changed Sabbath to Sunday by God or his son. We are children of God, Sons of Israel, and Abraham’s seed. We are to walk righteously before our creator having his commandments written on our hearts and following them out of our love for him. Think about it and research it for yourself. Sunday has never been a day sat aside for Gods people. Satan is the father of all lies and he has a great plan to separate God's people by getting them to abandon our creators Sabbath.
Jeremiah 16:19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit
