Gerald Flurry has a new article up on his web site about the sabbath. His byline starts off with this:
If we properly keep the Sabbath, we would never look to hopeless men.The proper translation to that should be: "If we followed Jesus, we would never look to hopeless men like Gerald Flurry. "
He starts by quoting Jeremiah 17:19-25 and then says this:
The Laodiceans can stop the curse. They must start with keeping God’s Sabbath day. The Sabbath is a sign that we are God’s royal Family.
“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the : whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed” (Exodus 31:13-17).
Today we must look at these verses spiritually. It is far more serious now than it was anciently. We get to know the true God through proper Sabbath-keeping. Only the firstfruits are called to that honor today. If they turn away, they won’t just die physically as ancient Israel did. These saints entered into a covenant with God. Now their eternal lives are at stake!No ones salvation is contingent upon Sabbath keeping or law keeping, regardless of what the apostate COG leaders claim.
