Sabbath vs. Sun Day

Beloved,
There has been only one change in the calendar since Jesus was on earth. This change did in no way affect the day of the week, only the day of the month. God would never have said “REMEMBER THE SABBATH” and then allowed time to have been lost. Six days creation, then the seventh day, Blessed and Sanctified for man by God. Mark 2:27.

Six thousand years, then the Millenium (one thousand year reign of Christ with the Saints). There will be no eight thousand years of time, nor will there be a thousand year reign after the Millenium for the first day people.

At the close of the Millenium, the angel swears by Him that liveth forever and ever that there should be time no longer. Rev. 10:6; 20:6; II Peter 3:8.
