God Chose a Day of Rest

I am scheduled to teach the Adult Bible Class at The Sanctuary UPC, located in Hazelwood, Missouri, this next Sunday, September 18, 2022. Mitchell Bland is our pastor. The class will begin at 10 A.M. and continue until 10:45 A.M. Throughout all classes, we follow the curriculum God’s Word for Life, published by the Pentecostal Publishing House.

Next Sunday’s lesson is included in Series 1: The God of Deliverance, and its focus is on the Ten Commandments.

We will not, of course, be able to discuss all ten commandments thoroughly during our forty-five minutes, and that is why I have posted the article below. I wrote this article, “God Chose a Day of Rest: The Principle of the Sabbath,” and it was published in the January 2018 issue of “Pentecostal Life.” All of the ten commandments are important, but I plan to focus on the prophetic significance of the fourth commandment.

How did the fourth commandment anticipate the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ? The answer to that question is the essence of this article.
