Days of our Week

Did you know that the days of the week that we use, are actually named after other/foreign gods?

Monday – Moon Day

Tuesday – Tiu Day

Wednesday – Woden Day

Thursday –  Thor Day

Friday – Freya Day

Saturday – Saturn Day

Sunday – Sun Day

In biblical times, the Lord’s people named the days after numbers ( 1st day, 2nd day, 3rd day, etc. )

Do you think we should return to that or will people get mixed up, as some count Sunday as the first day of the week, and other, like the French, count Monday as the first?

Although it may be challenging to change something we’ve been taught as a child, it doesn’t mean we should let it be.  The Portguese have already begun the change back to numbers. Shall we?

    First, let us define a day according to the bible. In Genesis the 1st chapter, a day is defined as an evening and a morning. An evening is defined In deuteronomy 16:6 as “at the going down of the sun>” Therefore a day is from the going down of the sun to the going down of the sun. In other words, the beginning of a day is when the sun is going down (before it is actually down, the evening) and second portion of the day is the light portion of the day, before the light begins to go down again (morning). In exodus the 20th chapter, the bible defines the sabbath as the seventh day. This day would begin at the going down of the sun on the previous day. To know and keep the sabbath holy and on the correct day is a sign between God and his people Yisra’el (israel in English) forever according to Exodus 31:13- . Digest this idea first.

      Yes! You are correct biblically about the definition and order of the day…yet how would we handle restoring God’s purpose and naming of the days in modern times? And why do some worship God on Sunday, after Christ’s Resurrection and not Saturday like before?

Sinner’s Prayer:

Dear Lord & Father, You are the Creator of all things and I know you created me. But I recognize I am a sinner through Adam's Fall and you sent your only Son, Jesus Christ to live, die and be raised from the dead for me. I repent of my sins and renounce all evil works and serving of other, lower, and lesser gods before thee. Come into me life and cleanse me by your Blood. Make me whole and well by your Holy Spirit. I now desire to live for you. Let your Holy Spirit guide me in all things. In the Name of Jesus Christ, AMEN!

Scripture of the Month-March

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Things to consider:

Jesus never charged for His Sermons, Preaching, Healing, etc...why should we put His Anointing on books, tapes, and cds, and charge people for it? I recall How angry Jesus was when the leaders of the Church of His time altered the purpose of the temple and made it a business. Shouldn't we too, be afraid to do the same? UPDATE: a minister pointed out, He didn't have to because His own people were financing Him. They were wealthy...
