Mundy's Quote for the Day

Mundy's Quote for the Day
Have you ever wondered why the Jews keep the Sabbath (Saturday), and the Christian's celebrate The Lord's Day on Sunday (the first day of the week)? Then, wonder no more. I am providing you with the answers in a very simple manner to both questions. If you really want to know the biblical truth, research the Bible books, chapters and verses provided. Enjoy your Bible study and be greatly rewarded and blessed in your research for wisdom of the why's of two different days of worship. - Reverend Lynwood F. Mundy
Lord’s Day, the
As well as keeping the Sabbath, the first Christians assembled together on the first day of the week to commemorate Jesus Christ’s resurrection through the Lord’s Supper. The Lord’s Day quickly became the focal point of the Christian week, eventually assuming the characteristics of the Jewish Sabbath, namely worship and rest.

DEVOTIONAL READING: Psalm 1
BACKGROUND SCRIPTURE: Ezekiel 47:1–12

EZEKIEL 47:1–12
1 Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.

International Sunday School Lesson

Lesson for November 16, 2014Water from the Sanctuary Gives Life Ezekiel 47:1-12This treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. It is published in the November 9 issue of The Lookout magazine, and is also available online at www.lookoutmag.com. ______ By Sam E. Stone  Last week’s study ended with Ezekiel 43:21. After that Ezekiel was given further instruction about those who would serve in the temple, the allotment of land, and priestly duties for various occasions. Now the prophet is back at the entrance to the temple. Worship in the kingdom of God is the future promised to all of the Lord’s people. One Bible teacher summarized these blessings as “health, happiness, and holiness.” Today’s lesson text leads us into another part of the prophet’s impressive vision.
