The Sabbath is changed to Dies Solis
by Rav Sha'ul


"If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath Day, that is Saturday. In keeping Sunday they are following a law of the Catholic Church."

Albert Smith, chancellor of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, replying for the cardinal in a letter of Feb. 10, 1920.

What the Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Baltimore is saying to his “Cardinal” is simple… Sunday is not in The Bible and contradicts The Commanded Sabbath of YHVH. Albert Smith is admitting is that “Protestants” are simply protesting Catholics but still Catholic non-the-less in fundamental doctrine.  The entire body of “Christianity” is in fact the false religion based word for word in doctrine on the the Mystery Religion of Babylon

When addressing the issue of the Sabbath vs. Sunday, we must always keep in the forefront of our minds that the Roman Empire’s religion before, during and even after the Roman Emperor Constantine was Sol Invictus (the worship of the invincible sun which began in Babylon).  Constantine founded Christianity on a purely political bases to stabilize his empire and unit pagan religions not because he became a follower of Yahusha and child of YHVH.  Constantine never changed his religion; he just forced his sun worship upon the entire world.

"Had she (Christianity) not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday, the Seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority"  Stephen Keenan, A Doctrinal Catechism 3rd ed. p. 174

The Christian Church,... “by virtue of her (Christianity’s) divine mission”, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday. The Catholic Mirror, official organ of Cardinal Gibbons, Sept. 23, 1893.

The admission above is true, it was Satan’s “divine mission” to change the Sabbath to Sunday.  Why?  Because The Sabbath is the “sign” that you are truly a child of YHVH.  Keeping The Sabbath is how you demonstrate you know YHVH:

Exodus 31

12 YHVH said to Moshe, 13  Tell the people of Isra’el, ‘You are to observe my Shabbats; for this is a sign between me and you through all your generations; so that you will know that I am YHVH, who sets you apart for me. 17  It is a sign between me and the people of Isra’el forever; for in six days ADONAI made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day he stopped working and rested.’


The Sabbath… Key to Salvation

Hebrews 4 even in the NT or New Covenant the Sabbath is key to salvation.  Below it clearly says you cannot be saved if you violate the Sabbath and The Sabbath is the 4th Commandment of YHVH.  Remember, all the men of God in the Bible and the true church kept the Sabbath for 300 years after the Messiah’s death until Constantine changed it by threat of death:

Hebrews 4

A Sabbath-Rest for the People of God

1 Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it (by failing to Keep the Sabbath). 2 For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith (Keep the Sabbath in light of the Messiah). 3 Now we who have believed enter that rest (Keep the Sabbath in light of faith in the Passover Lamb of YHVH, whose name is Yahusha), just as YHVH has said,

"So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.' "And yet his work has been finished since the creation of the world (YHVH Himself kept the Sabbath in Genesis 1 and commanded we do to, the 4th Commandment). 4 For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day (Saturday, not Sunday) in these words: "And on the seventh day YHVH rested from all his work." 5 And again in the passage above he says, "They shall never enter my rest." (referring to those disobedient to His Sabbath command)

6 It still remains that some (the remnant sons of YHVH) will enter that rest, and those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in, because of their disobedience (to the Sabbath). 7 Therefore YHVH, again, set a certain day, calling it Today, when a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before:

"Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts. (against His Sabbath)" 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day (the Sabbath Rest is yet to come). 9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of YHVH; 10 for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as YHVH did from His (You must keep the Sabbath just as YHVH did). 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest (by being obedient to The Sabbath), so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience (set by the Christian Church).

The Sabbath is defined as The Sign between YHVH and His sons.  The “sign” of the Christian Church between Satan and his chosen is and has always been Sunday.

"You may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify." James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (1917 ed.), pp. 72,73.

In fact, The Sabbath is the weekly worship day for all eternity by all mankind because as Hebrew 4 states only Sabbath keepers enter the Kingdom of God.  We see below that those Sabbath keepers literally step over the bodies of those destroyed for NOT KEEPING THE SABBATH! 

Isaiah 66:22-24

22  “For just as the new heavens and the new earth that I am making will continue in my presence,” says YHVH, “so will your descendants and your name continue. 23  “Every month on Rosh-Hodesh and every week on Shabbat, everyone living will come to worship in my presence,” says YHVH. 24  “As they leave, they will look on the corpses of the people who rebelled against me for their worm will never die, and their fire will never be quenched; but they will be abhorrent to all humanity.”


Were did Sunday Worship come from if not The Bible?

Where did the Christian Church get Sunday worship?  Not from The Bible it is nowhere to be found.  Sunday worship cam from Sol Invictus ("Invincible Sun"); the official sun god of the later Roman Empire. In 274 the Roman emperor Aurelian made it an official cult alongside the traditional Roman cults. Sol Invictus was the favored god by emperors after Aurelian and appeared on their coins until Constantine. The last inscription referring to Sol Invictus dates to 387 AD.

Keep in mind, Constanine’s “conversion” was supposedly to have taken place much earlier than that.  The Council of Nicaea and “birth” of Christianity took place in 325 AD some 50 years earlier than the last inscription on Constantine’s coins.  His strictly legendary “conversion” supposedly took place earlier than the Council of Nicaea. What “conversion’ actually took place 3 years prior to the Council of Nicaea and birth of the Christian religion?  Constantine was converted to The Cult of Sol Invictus.  The “new” convert Constantine actually remained deeply committed to his sun god and was one of the few which incorporated the epithet invictus, such as the legend SOLI INVICTO COMITI, claiming the Unconquered Sun as a companion to the Emperor.  This “commitment to the sun god” was used particular frequency by Constantine. Statuettes of Sol Invictus, carried by the standard-bearers, appear in three places in reliefs on the Arch of Constantine. Constantine's official coinage continues to bear images of Sol until 325/6.  A solidus of Constantine as well as a gold medallion from his reign depict the Emperor's bust in profile twinned ("jugate") with Sol Invictus, with the legend INVICTUS CONSTANTINUS.  It should be noted here, that his new god too was INVICTUS JESUS as are his followers to this day.

Constantine decreed (March 7, 321) dies Solis—day of the sun, "Sunday"—as the Roman day of rest just prior to the Council of Nicaea:

 “On the venerable day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country however persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits because it often happens that another day is not suitable for grain-sowing or vine planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost.”

Constantine's triumphal arch was carefully positioned to align with the colossal statue of Sol by the Colosseum, so that Sol formed the dominant backdrop when seen from the direction of the main approach towards the arch.

Following the Council of Nicaea, the newly formed “Christian Church” held yet another “council” of paganism known as The Council of Leodicea to uphold the abomination of Sun god worship.  In this council they literally declared the obedient followers of YHVH an “anathema of Christ” or rather “accursed by Chrestos” which may be true of their god “Jesus” but not the true Messiah Yahusha.  Yahusha kept Sabbath, commanded we keep it, and was raised by YHVH on The Sabbath.  In effect, they declared the True Messiah, a Jewish Rabbi and follower of The Torah, accursed as he was truly a Jewish Rabbi and Sabbath keeper:

Christians must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, rather honouring the Lord's Day; and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ.  (Canon 29 [A.D. 360]).  (The Church Council of Laodicea circa 364 CE)

Well, Yahusha the Messiah was by their definition “a judaizer” and there for accursed by their god Jesus.  It was the role of the new “priests of Sol” (formerly the priests of Mithra called “Fathers”) and the priestesses of Brigit called “Nuns” in the newly formed “Christian Church” to teach the masses now that Sungod Day was the “New Sabbath”.  This was accomplished by teaching that the disciples of “Jesus” met together on the first day of the week.  In their pagan calendars and reckoning of time, Sunday was the first day of the week and the day began at midnight.  The ignorant masses were easily led astray. 

The days in the Bible at the time of the Messiah began at sunset.  So early “the first day” of the week Biblically was what we call Saturday night.  The disciples were at home keeping The Sabbath, as commanded by YHVH and obediently kept by Yahusha, from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday.  They would then get together Saturday night to fellowship together once the sun set on The Sabbath and a new day began at dusk.  When the sun rose on Sunday the first day of the week they were all at work it was a work day.  They didn’t have “weekends” like we do today!  Any truth seeking individual thinker and obedient son of YHVH would know this simple historical fast.  Sunday “sunrise” morning worship is PAGAN dating back to Babylon.

Then the pagan priests in this “new” religion called Christianity would teach Good Friday as the day their “Christ” was crucified on the cross of Tammuz.  When in reality the Messiah was impaled on a stake.  They would then teach their “Christ” was resurrected on Ishtar Sungod Day what we now call Easter.  This was their “justification” for literally abolishing the only Holy Day kept by God (YHVH) Himself, the Sabbath Day.  These pagan priests used lies by changing the “times” of YHVH in how you calculate a “day”, lies to justify a “cross” and lies to justify Good-Friday/Easter.  The Catholic (Mother of Christianity) Church then literally re-wrote the 10 Commandments eliminating the 4th Commandment to keep the Sabbath Day Holy.

In the 5th century, Socrates Scholasticus Church History book 5 states the fact that until Constantine imposed Dies Solis (Sungod Day) on humanity, most assemblies and believers across the world at that time still kept The Sabbath even as late as 5 centuries later after Yahusha!  He clearly knew that this “Sunday” worship was based in Rome on “the account of some ancient tradition”!

 "Nor is there less variation in regard to religious assemblies. For although almost all churches throughout the world celebrate the sacred mysteries on the sabbath of every week, yet the Christians of Alexandria and at Rome, on account of some ancient tradition, have ceased to do this."  

The reader of this book should now know exactly what “ancient tradition” he was referring to; sun god worship originating in ancient Babylon.  Evidence of this blasphemous move by a pagan Roman Church called “Christianity” is plentiful in history if we simply love YHVH enough to question it.

Westminster Confession of Faith, Chapter 21, "Of Religious Worship, and the Sabbath Day". Section 7-8 reads: As it is the law of nature, that, in general, a due proportion of time be set apart for the worship of God; so, in his Word, by a positive, moral, and perpetual commandment binding all men in all ages, he hath particularly appointed one day in seven, for a Sabbath, to be kept holy unto him: which, from the beginning of the world to the resurrection of Christ, was the last day of the week; and, from the resurrection of Christ, was changed into the first day of the week, which, in Scripture, is called the Lord’s day, and is to be continued to the end of the world, as the Christian Sabbath.  

No. YHVH did not set aside “one day in Seven” he set aside THE 7th Day!  The above is an unscriptural pagan lie.  This trickery and slight of hand and wordsmithing is notorious in the Christian Church.  “Christian Sabbath” is a man-made term not found in Scripture or taught by anyone until 5th century.  Only by circular reasoning can this statement be made – (i.e. the Lord’s Day must mean Sunday since that is the day Jesus rose from the grave.) – which in fact Yahusha was not raisedon Sunday at all!  He was raised 3 days and 3 nights after the Passover when he was killed.  That resurrection day is The Sabbath!

The first “lie” is that Yahusha rose on Sunday when in fact he was risen on The Sabbath!  Yahusha rose on the 7th Day.  This “Lord’s Day” or more accurately “Day of the Lord” in scripture actually says “Day of YHVH” and refers to the END OF DAYS – NOT SUNDAY - See Amos 5:18, Joel 2:31, 1Thes. 5:2.  The Apostle John in Revelation uses this term.  His entire letter is describing the end of days, end time events.  He wasn’t saying, “let’s see, I think it was on Sunday that I had this vision”.  No, he was saying, “I have been a witness of future events on the Day of YHVH” – referring to judgment.   Change the name YHVH to “the LORD”, give that same title to the Messiah, call him “Jesus” then twist the reckoning of time and scriptures, and only then can you arrive at Sunday being “The Lord’s Day’.  Oh how easily we are misled and how very easily we put up with it!  We have literally been given another Gospel (Trinity/Sunday/Easter/Jesus) not in scripture (which is YHVH/Yahusha/Sabbath/Passover) and another “Spirit” that “Jesus is God not man” when YHVH alone is God and we bought into it and to this day put up with it:

2 Corinthians 11:4

4 For if someone comes to you and preaches a Messiah other than the Messiah we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.

YHVH raised Yahusha from the grave on The Sabbath

The Messiah was impaled on a stake on The Passover, a Wednesday, and rose from the grave on The Sabbath exactly 3 days/nights later.  This false Messiah named “Jesus” is proven false by the very fact that Friday night (supposed time of Jesus crucifixion) to Sunday morning (supposed time of his resurrection) is only a day and a half!  Jesus is therefore a FALSE PROPHET because he specifically stated he would be in the grave 3 days AND 3 nights.  There is no logic known to man that can get 3 days and 3 nights from Friday evening to Sunday morning.  Are we so ignorant and uneducated that we cannot even count to 3? Or have we “willingly” become so?  This one fact alone disqualifies the Roman demi-god “Jesus H. Christ” from being the true Messiah of Israel.  The Catholic Church (Christianity) even admits this abomination.  Calling the Sabbath of YHVH a “Jewish Sabbath”, the very sign between YHVH and His chosen Elect and the 4th Commandment of God, they admit literally changing The Law of God on the authority of the False Christian Church alone.  Basically “we keep Sunday because we keep Sunday we don’t care what the Bible says or YHVH Commanded or what day Yahusha taught in The Temple or what day he was resurrected”.  This is our only defense and reason for keeping Sunday because no justification for Sunday worship is true.  History clearly shows the Sabbath was changed by a sun worshiping pagan emperor then forced on an uneducated realm by law then by death:

"The Church, on the other hand, after changing the day of rest from the Jewish Sabbath, or seventh day of the week, to the first, made the Third (fourth) Commandment refer to Sunday as the day to be kept holy as the Lord's Day." The Catholic Encyclopedia Topic: Ten Commandments, 2nd paragraph

"We have made the change from the seventh day to the first day, from Saturday to Sunday, on the authority of the one holy, catholic, apostolic church of Christ."--Episcopalian Bishop Seymour said in "Why We Keep Sunday."

Never did YHVH give mankind such authority to rewrite His Law.  The Messiah Yahusha never assumed such authority.  The pagan Popes of Rome even go so far as to claim YHVH’s most Holy Sabbath as an “execration” or “curse”!

Sylvester I (314-337 A.D.) was the pope during the reign of Constantine. Here is what he thought of the Bible Sabbath: "If every Sunday is to be observed joyfully by the Christians on account of the resurrection, then every Sabbath on account of the burial is to be execration [loathing or cursing] of the Jews."--quoted by S. R. E. Humbert, Adversus Graecorum calumnias 6, in Patrologie Cursus Completus, Series Latina, ed. J.P. Migne, 1844, p. 143.

Yahusha was neither buried on Friday nor was he resurrected on Sunday.  He was buried on Passover a Wednesday and raised on The Sabbath.  Again it is openly admitted that the 7th Day Sabbath is the ONLY Holy Day in scripture and was changed to accommodate the pagan sun worshippers of their day:

At this time in early church history it was necessary for the church to either adopt the Gentiles' day or else have the Gentiles change their day. To change the Gentiles' day would have been an offense and a stumbling block to them. The church could naturally reach them better by keeping their day."--William Frederick, Three Prophetic Days, pp. 169-170.

That’s right; to assimilate pagans into this new false religion the decision was made to “keep THEIR pagan day”.  Even the Pope admits as much, if you follow YHVH you will keep The Sabbath, if you follow him you will keep Dies Solis (the day of the Sun god) as it is his “divine right” given him by the Sun deity to change the ordinances of YHVH:

"The Pope has the power to change times, to abrogate (abolish) laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ." "The Pope has the authority and often exercised it, to dispense with the command of Christ." -Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. Cap. (The Pope can modify divine law.) Ferraris' Ecclesiastical Dictionary.

Make no mistake if you are Christian and do not keep the Sabbath IT IS BY PAPAL DECREE! The false Church of Rome known today as Christianity (even its Protestants off-shoots are guilty) imposed this “false” Church upon humanity at the cost of literally murdering over 100,000,000 (100 Million) people or as the Bible says “dripping with the blood of the Saints”:

"That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind, will be questioned by no Protestant who has a competent knowledge of history . . . It is impossible to form a complete conception of the multitude of her victims, and it is quite certain that no powers of imagination can adequately realize their sufferings."--W. E. H. Lecky, History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of Rationalism in Europe, vol. 2, p. 32, 1910 edition.  (An excellent though lengthy article describing in detail the right of the Roman Catholic Church to do this, will be found in The Catholic Encyclopedia, vol. 12, p. 266.)

"For professing faith contrary to the teachings of the Church of Rome, history records the martyrdom of more then one hundred million people. A million Waldenses and Albigenses [Swiss and French Protestants] perished during a crusade proclaimed by Pope Innocent III in 1208. Beginning from the establishment of the Jesuits in 1540 to 1580, nine hundred thousand were destroyed. One hundred and fifty thousand perished by the Inquisition in thirty years. Within the space of thirty-eight years after the edict of Charles V against the Protestants, fifty thousand persons were hanged, beheaded, or burned alive for heresy. Eighteen thousand more perished during the administration of the Duke of Alva in five and a half years."--Brief Bible Readings, p. 16.

On August 24, 1572, Roman Catholics in France, by pre-arranged plan, under Jesuit influence, murdered 70,000 Protestants within the space of two months. The pope rejoiced when he heard the news of the successful outcome. (Read Great Controversy, chapter 15 for the details.). . . We have heard ring out many times the very bells that called the Catholics together on that fatal night. They always sounded sweetly in our ears"--Western Watchman, Nov. 21, 1912 [Roman Catholic].

It is little wonder “why” we march to our Trinity/Jesus/Sunday/Easter/Christmas pagan establishments each and every Dies Solis.  “The Whore of Babylon” literally is drenched in the blood of the saints of YHVH who would not bow to this paganism.  Humanity has been conditioned by threat of death from the Inquisitions on through 2,000 years of murder and bloodshed to blindly obey.  That includes YOU!  Try questioning Sunday worship some day to your family, friends, preacher, etc. and ask them why we all are disobedient to the ONLY Holy Day kept by God Himself and the Messiah and every man in the Bible and the real church for 500 years after Yahusha came… The Sabbath.
