Creation and Redemption

Creation and Redemption

People who wish to excuse themselves from obeying the Fourth Commandment as it reads, will often say that Sunday commemorates the work of redemption, because Christ rose on the first day of the week, while the seventh day commemorates creation, and since redemption is greater than creation, it is better to observe the first day than the seventh. 

A Message to the Mockers in Leadership

Warning Against Despising God’s Message

I would speak in warning to those who have stood for years resisting light and cherishing the spirit of opposition. How long will you hate and despise the messengers1 of God’s righteousness?

God declares His righteousness upon the one who believes. To declare is to speak.
