Key Text: Revelation 1:10


  1. Revelation 1:10. The Lord has a day that belongs to Him, that is His day-the Lord’s day. This text doesn’t tell us what that day is, but obviously, the Lord’s day is not just any day. The Lord has a special day.


  1. Matthew 12:8. Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath day. Therefore, the Lord’s day is the Sabbath day. However, this text still doesn’t tell us which day is the Sabbath day.


  1. Exodus 20:8-11. The seventh day of the week is the Sabbath-the Lord’s day. It is the weekly birthday of our world!


  1. Genesis 2:1-3. God made the Sabbath at the creation of our world, long before there was Jew or Gentile. Therefore, the Sabbath belongs to all humanity, not to any one race of people. God did three things to make the Sabbath His special day: He rested on it; He blessed it; and He sanctified it-set it apart for a holy use.


  1. Colossians 1:14-17. Jesus is the Creator of Genesis. He made our world and everything in it. Jesus is the One who made the Sabbath in the beginning.

  1. Revelation 22:14. God is leading earnest Christians back to all of His commandments. A rebellious people were separated from the tree of life in the Garden of Eden when sin came. An obedient people will be given access to the tree of life in Paradise when sin is done away with forever.
