Hi Daniel

To truthfully answer this question the Sabbath day is Saturday and has been since creation.  To fully understand were the change to Sunday can from you should read a very interesting article called Rome's Challenge.

The bible does not indicate that Paul is having Sunday service.

As i read and understand the scriptures it is indicating to me that there is a reunion for paul's farewell giving the disciples

a last set of instructions. Lets not forget that Paul was already there for seven days , they could have gathered numerous times.In reference to the book of Revelations 1-10 were Paul says he was in the spirit on the lords day read Isaiah 58-13,14 that clearly indicates what day Paul is talking about.Daniel all i am saying is how can this world forget the only commandment that starts with the words remember, and also written with God's own finger. I hope this can help you find the path you are seeking.

The Sabbath is not just one day in seven it is a specific day set aside by GOD. The ten commandments state Gods law for man and in it he specified which day and how to keep it. Also note that it is the only command that has the word REMEMBER as he knew man would forget and make his own day. Just remember the devil has a counterfeit for evtrutherything pertaining to truth. Make it a matter of prayer and listen God will our path search the Bible  for truth and he will reveal his plan.

This answer is flawed. Please check your bible again the Lord's day is not Sunday. it is Sabbath. see Genesis to Revelation ( Genesis

nowhere dos it say the it was Sunday when John is in vision in Revelation 1. stop spreading a lie

Your answer also contradicts itself you start by stating the the early Christians met everyday yet in the latter part you said they met to worship on Sundays, false it says they "gathered to break bread" did he Paul not break bread the next day also (Acts 20 1- 12)

You also stated that the celebrated the resurrection of Jesus when they did not even believe or know he was risen. consider this were not the disciples (including the apostles) in hiding for fear of the Sanhedrin and the Romans and met together to console and pray for each other.

by your words "For those Christians who lived in New Testament days, Sunday worship was a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus which took place on the first day of the week" How is it now that Sunday is now accepted as the Sabbath or the preferred day of worship.

and finally You state that the 4th commandment is not referred to in the new testament as binding, however the passage you quoted does not support your claim. in fact in Revelation it is written that we who are saved will worship him from Sabbath to Sabbath

Mathew 11 28-30 NIV

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

How will Jesus give us rest if we do not observe the commandment of rest

Very well sir, you have explained it very well but there is something you have missed. let me point out that for you first of all Sunday is no where mentioned in the bible as Lords day,I agree that some of the disciples of Christ worshipped on Sunday but they never said that we should also worship on Sunday in fact they taught people to follow the example of Christ not their examples. it is people's perception that they have bee teaching people Sunday as lord's day. no where in the bible God sanctified and blessed the Sunday but Saturday. if you have dictionary with you i request you to open it and find Saturday and let's see what answer you get. i hope you got your answer right.

Now let me quote something from the bible regarding Sabbath, now as you know Isaiah was a major prophet of bible and in the book of of Genesis Chapter 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. no where in the bible God sanctified sunday and command us to keep it but only seventh day which is Saturday and not sunday. let me also quote something from revelation chapter 14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that MADE HEAVEN, and EARTH, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. now as you now revelation is a prophecies given by Christ himself he also said the same  thing worship him who made heaven and earth. now if you check you bible basic studies Genesis chapter 2 verse 3 you will find who made heaven and the earth. Sabbath was a sign given by God between him and  his people so that the habitant of the earth may remember that God himself is our creator and Sustainer. that's why 4th commandment says REMEMBER THE SEVENTH DAY AND KEEP IT HOLY.

Isaiah chapter 66, 22 verse onward. Here Isaiah is has prophesied and talking about New Heaven And New earth. and there also he is mentioning that after every thing is restored the people from one planet to another  they will come before the lord and worship  him on Sabbath. so if we are not keep it on earth, how we will understand its importance in heaven. Jesus will no plead before the father for murderer and for the people who never kept his commandments.

This is a serious question. i am not debating with you on the word of God neither i want to because word of God is Holy it is to be follow as it is written but i am telling you so that you know you. i can quote many other scripture but i guess its suffice. even Jesus his self kept the Sabbath (And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.Mark 1:21) Thank you !! and i hope God change your heart to do what is right
