But there is error in the belief that Sunday is "The Lord's Day". The phrase "The Lord's Day" is only used once in the entire Bible and that is in Revelations and there is no indication that it is referring to Sunday. The "Day of the Lord" is used many times and refers to the day of His return and judgement on the world.

The biblical day is from evening to evening. And Yahshua was in the tomb for three days and three nights. He was entombed on the evening that started the High Day Sabbath beginning the Days of Unleavening which at that time was the beginning of the fourth day or what we would call Wednesday evening. John 19:31 He was not entombed on Friday as most people think.

Three nights and three days later brings us to Saturday evening. Wednesday night, Thursday, Thursday night, Friday, Friday night, Saturday = three days and three nights. Scripture says that the first day was when they found that Messiah had already risen but He rose at the end of the Sixth Day, Saturday. Yahshua did not rise on Sunday that is just when they found that He had already risen.

So Sunday is nothing but the first day of the week. The only time the first day of the week has any significance is the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) which always falls on the first day. Lev 23 Nowhere in Scripture does it say anything at all about Sunday being a weekly day of observance or worship in any way.

Also Yahshua never negated His weekly Seventh day Sabbath nor the High Day Sabbaths. The Apostles kept the Sabbath and the Gentiles who believed also worshiped on the Sabbath. The apostles also continued to keep the High Day Sabbaths. If they hadn't then they would not have received the Holy Spirit on the Feast of Weeks. The only thing negated was the animal sacrifice and the Levitical priesthood and of course the traditions imposed by the Pharisees and Saducees like the washing of hands which was not Scriptural.

All of your references that you say negate the Sabbath are taken completely out of context. What you need to look at are absolute Scriptures that need no explanation like Matthew 24:20 "And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath." Or Isaiah 66:23 "And it shall come to pass that from one new moon to another and from one Sabbath to another All flesh shall come and worship before Me says Yahweh." Get out your concordance and look up the word Sabbath and read all the passages that pertain to it and you will begin to see that it is not negated at all.

"For THIS is the love of GOD, that we keep His Commandments and His Commandments are not burdensome." 1John 5:2,3
