This calendar shows the days
of creation, ending with the seventh
day being blessed and sanctified. This
evidence supports that the seventh day
is the Sabbath of the Lord.
created "time" for our world
1:14 14 And God said, Let there be lights
in the firmament of the heaven to divide
the day from the night; and let them
be for signs, and for seasons, and for
days, and years:"
creation God made the earth to circle
the sun every year. The moon went around
the earth giving us a time period of
about a month (29.5 Days). The earth
turned every 24 hours which gives us
the day. So why do we have a week?
supplies the only explaination for the
1:31-2:3 "And God saw every thing
that he had made, and, behold, it was

were the sixth day. Thus the heavens
and the earth were finished, and all
the host of them. And on the seventh
day God ended his work which he had
made; and he rested on the seventh day
from all his work which he had made."
when do you think the week began? This
creation story sure looks like a week
of seven days.
The first place in the bible that week
is mentioned is in Genesis 29:27-28.
"Fulfil her week, and we will give
thee this also for the service which
thou shalt serve with me yet seven other
years. And Jacob did so, and fulfilled
her week: and he gave him Rachel his
daughter to wife also."
history of Jacob was written about 4,000
years ago. The week was part of his
life and the people of that day. Examine
the evidence that exists for the seven
day week and let me know if there is
some place or time other than creation
for the origin of the week.
seventh day was blessed and sanctified
2:3 "And God blessed the seventh
day, and sanctified it: because that
in it he had rested from all his work
which God created and made."

we will study additional evidence that
the Sabbath commandment existed before
the Jewish nation was established.
