Dare to Believe
Today we understand that heavenly bodies tell us how we measure time. For example, a YEAR is measured by a complete rotation of the earth around the sun. A MONTH is measured by a full rotation of the moon around the earth. A DAY is measured by a full rotation of the earth on it's axis. However, what heavenly body helps us measure a full WEEK? Well, there is none.
The only way we can measure the weekly cycle is by going to the biblical account of creation in the Book of Genesis chapters 1 and 2. This is the only way we can know what constitutes a full week. It's importance is drawn from the fact that God created the world in six literal (24 hour) days and rested on the seventh day. This day of rest is called "Sabbath".
The truth of the seventh day Sabbath stands firm and valid today as it is observed and kept by millions around the world in honour of God as Creator of the heavens and the earth. Jesus, the Creator Himself said: "...'The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath." Mark 2:27, 28 (NKJV). This verse tells us clearly who holds lordship over this day.
Watch "The Creation: The Earth is a Witness," a day-by-day account of the biblical creation week, beginning with darkness before God intoduces light and ending with Moses, the author of the Genesis account of creation, and his son, worshipping God on the seventh-day Sabbath.
