All throughout scripture the sabbath of the Lord is confirmed as being on the SEVENTH DAY. 'Six days shalt thou labour, but the seventh day is the sabbath
of the Lord. In it you shall do no work.' This is repeated time and time again all throughout the Old Testament, and yet those who hold to the lunar theory
DO NOT keep the sabbath day every seven days. Every month one of their 'sabbaths' occurs on the 8th or 9th day! This alone shows it to be a false teaching.
Let us look at the creation account and see when the moon and the weekly sabbath day was created.
Genesis 1:16-19 ...'And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the
stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the
light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.'
Genesis 2:2-3 ...'And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had
made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.'
So when did God make the moon? He made it on the FOURTH DAY of creation. And what about the sabbath day? He instituted it on the SEVENTH DAY of creation. Now we
know that Adam and Eve were created on the sixth day. So what was the first full day that Adam and Eve spent together? It was the seventh day sabbath. And was
this sabbath day that Adam and Eve spent together determined by the moon? No, because the moon was only created 3 days prior. Ok, so what about the NEXT sabbath
day that Adam and Eve observed? That was SEVEN DAYS later right? Was that one determined by the moon? Clearly not. What about the NEXT sabbath day? Determined
by the moon? No!
Do you see the clear Biblical truth here friends? The institution of the weekly sabbath had no bearing on the moon and the moon had no bearing on the weekly
sabbath. The moon was created on day four and there is no mention whatsoever that it would have any bearing on when the sabbath day would be. Instead, God simply
setup a weekly seven day cycle from creation that continued. And it is this that determined the seventh day sabbath, not the cycle of the moon.
Now take a look at the following important truth concerning the sabbath day contained in the 4th commandment.
Exodus 20:8-11 ...'Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day
is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant,
nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and
rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.'
Do you see what event God is pointing to in His 4th commandment? He is pointing to creation week. And He is confirming that it is this creation event
from where we get the seventh day sabbath, as the weekly sabbath is a memorial of God's creation and a day that shows our allegiance to our Creator God, the
one true God. And as we have already shown above, the seventh day sabbath of creation was NOT determined by the moon.
Do a search of Genesis and Exodus and you will only find one mention of the moon, and that was concerning Joseph's dream
of the sun, moon and stars bowing down to him. Nothing to do with the sabbath day.
What about the account of the Israelites in the wilderness after leaving Egypt? Didn't God tell them to collect the manna for six days and then rest
on the seventh day? Was there any mention of the moon? No, the moon isn't mentioned AT ALL in the book of Exodus. So what sabbath day would God be
telling them to observe? The weekly sabbath that He instituted during creation week of course, which had nothing to do with the moon.
