Why WMSCOG Resurrection day is Sunday?
When I asked Christians, why keep worship on Sunday? They answered they keep worship on Sunday. Because the day of Jesus’ resurrection was on Sunday. If it is right, for example, if Jesus resurrected on Monday, the day of worship should be on Monday. If he resurrected on Thursday, the day of worship should be on Thursday, shouldn’t it?
Why Jesus resurrected on Sunday?
He resurrected on Sunday cause he already knew Sunday had became holiday in 321?
When you want to know why he resurrected on Sunday, you try to look for the Bible.
To understand the day of Jesus’ resurrection, first you have to understand the feasts of Old testament and New testament. Let’s find one of the feasts of Old testament, the Day of First fruits.
The day of Firstfruits(WMSCOG Resurrection day)
The date of Firstfruits
Leviticus 23 : 9~14The LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land I am going to give you and you reap its harvest, bring to the priest a sheaf of the first grain you harvest. He is to wave the sheaf before the LORD so it will be accepted on your behalf; the priest is to wave it on the day after the Sabbath. On the day you wave the sheaf, you must sacrifice as a burnt offering to the LORD a lamb a year old without defect, together with its grain offering of two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil-an offering made to the LORD by fire, a pleasing aroma-and its drink offering of a quarter of a hin of wine. You must not eat any bread, or roasted or new grain, until the very day you bring this offering to your God. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.
The day of Firstfruits is the day after the Sabbath after the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Sabbath is the seventh day, Saturday. So next day is Sunday. The day of Firstfruits has no date and it just come on Sunday after the day of Unleavened Bread.
The ceremony of Firstfruits
Leviticus 23 : 9~10 The LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land I am going to give you and you reap its harvest, bring to the priest a sheaf of the first grain you harvest.
The way to keep Firstfruits is serving God with a sheaf of the first grain, first fruit. Now let’s find the feast of New testament.
The Day of Resurrection(WMSCOG Resurrection day)
The date of Resurrection
Mark 16 : 9 When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons.
Jesus resurrected first Sunday after crucified on the cross. That means he resurrected first Sunday, the first day after Sabbath after Unleavened Bread, the suffering day.
The Ceremony of Resurrection
Luke 24 : 25-30 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow of hear to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus acted as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them. When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them.
Acts 20 : 6-7 But we sailed from Philippi after the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and five days later joined the others at Troas, where we stayed seven days. On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight.
On that day, Jesus resurrected, he gave bread after giving thanks to his two disciples and then their spiritual eyes were opened and they recognized Him. After then his disciples kept the Day of Resurrection to eat bread year by year.
Then Let’s try to look for the relationship between the Day of Firstfruits in the Old testament and the Day of Resurrection in the New Testament.
The relationship of the Day of Firstfruits and the Day of Resurrection.
The prophecy and fulfillment
His resurrected day, the first day after Sabbath is the fulfillment of the prophecy of the Day of Firstfruits (the first day after Sabbath after Unleavened bread).
As giving first fruit to God on the Day of Firstfruits, Jesus also was given to God as first fruit.
1 Corinthians 15 : 20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
John 20 : 17 Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.”
The reason ‘not hold on to me’ is that first he has to be given to God as first fruit. Jesus’ resurrected day is Sunday like this. So today all churches, any parts of churches keep the Day of Resurrection on Sunday.
But it is wrong to keep Sunday worship cause he resurrected on Sunday. Weekly feast is Sabbath, Saturday not Sunday. He resurrected on Sunday, so keep the Day of Resurrection just on Sunday.
Then, let me think!!! Is it right the Christian keep Easter? Let’s see.
The Easter of Christian and The WMSCOG Resurrection day in Bible
The Date of Resurrection
The Bible says that The date of Resurrection is the first Sunday (the first day after Sabbath) after Unleavened Bread. But the Christian says it is the first Sunday after the first Full Moon after the March equinox.
It is made not by God by men in Nicaea Council in 325.
