Welcome to Light on the Rock

So glad to have you all come and visit our FREE website, where we have over 125 sermons and lots of short articles or blogs (see LOTR Blogs).   Brothers and sisters from 70 countries come to this site.  Welcome to all of you.  Many of you visit us from China, Russia, the Philippines, the UK, Italy, France, Canada, Australia and of course, the USA and dozens of other countries.  Don’t keep us a secret. Tell your friends.  We worship our dear Father (whom I often call Abba), God Most High and His Son – Yeshua the Messiah, more commonly known as Jesus Christ.  We keep the sabbath and live by faith in His grace, as He transforms our lives in the Messiah through the Holy Spirit.

Let’s look ahead at our great and high calling. We don’t want to look back.  Let’s come together and each do our part in the body of Christ. Feel free to contact me. 

--Your brother in our Savior,  Philip.

Series: Sabbath
Duration: 1 hr 9 mins 57 secs
Though originally posted in 2008, the material in this sermon series is timeless. Whether you keep the 7th day Sabbath or not, I urge you to hear this 3-part series. I promise, it will be worth your time. Most Christians believe the 7th Day Sabbath was changed to Sunday in the New Testament to honor the resurrection of Jesus. This 2 or 3 part series will address the major issues: Has the Sabbath been fulfilled and therefore no longer required? Was the Sabbath in force before Mt. Sinai? Is the Sabbath a more important commandment than others? Was the Sabbath just for Israel and not Gentiles? How can we even be sure which day now - since Creation - is the 7th day? This first sermon will challenge long held notions, no matter from which camp you come!

Recorded originally in 2008, you’ll find this 3-part Sabbath series helpful information. Do you worship God out of tradition – or according to God's word? This message will encourage you to freshly examine the Sabbath of God. Did Jesus really break the Sabbath? Did He and the apostles change the 7th Day Sabbath to Sunday worship to honor the resurrection? Or, is there now no Sabbath required in the New covenant, because Jesus is our rest? Did the New Testament Gentiles keep the Sabbath? Will the Sabbath be kept forever and ever? These and more will be addressed in this message.

Recorded originally in 2008, you’ll find this 3-part Sabbath series helpful information. We explore and explain various scriptures some use to tout their teaching that God's Sabbath commandment has either been annulled or fulfilled in Christ. Jesus warned us not to minimize God's commands by our traditions (Mark 7:7-13). We end with a brief summary of how the 4th century "Christian" practices regarding Sabbath/Sunday worship had become quite different from Sabbath practices observed by the earliest believers, which we studied in sermon #2. We pray this message will help dedicate you to obeying God's 4th commandment instead of popular custom.
