Open the doors to the Sanctuary on Saturday

Make no mistake about it, I am not advocating for the body of Christ to attain salvation by works.  I am not advocating for the saints to be “under the law” or the give heed to rituals and traditions.  I am not asking the Church to observe the Sabbath as one who has not accepted Christ as savior.  On the contrary, I propose an entirely different way of observing the Sabbath.  I am asking that Pastors open up the doors to the Sanctuary on Saturday and allow the saints to worship God, worship Jesus Christ who is the Lord of the Sabbath.  Open the doors of the Sanctuary on the Sabbath so that the body of Christ can worship in spirit and in truth.  If someone has to work on that day it’s okay, “therefore now there is no condemnation to the them which are in Christ Jesus”, Romans 8:1; and “therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day”, Col 2:16.
 
Observing the Sabbath in the Israel of God is not about condemnation or being under the law, it is about acknowledging the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who created the heavens and the earth in six days and saw that it was all good.  Then on the seventh day he ceased from creating, for the work of his hands was all completed after he made Man.  And Jesus said that man was not made for the Sabbath but rather that the Sabbath was made for man - it is a divine entitlement!  The Sabbath is a day of worship not rituals, rules and regulations.  It is a day of healing and blessing, a day of joy and rest, a Holy day because God said it was so.  I am asking the Pastors of the body of Christ to please open the doors of the Sanctuary on the Sabbath so that the people of God may come in as they please and worship the almighty God and his son Jesus Christ. 
 
Pastors open the doors of the Sanctuary on Jesus’ Sabbath and let’s worship God as he commanded.
