Welcome to Light on the Rock

We’re starting a new Roman year and so the way I see it, we’re one year closer to us being caught up by holy angels to transport the Bride, the Body of Christ, to be with our King at his return.  God speed that day! Let’s commit this year to more time in deep daily study of God’s holy word, daily prayer on our knees as well as frequent contacts with our dear Father and Savior throughout the day.  Let’s be growing in love for every human being and our God. Let’s focus on overcoming and growing in the Spirit, as never before.

Be sure to check out our blogs.  Also scroll through the sermon titles over the years and you’ll find dozens of topics that will fascinate you here at your website.  You’ll also see more contributors and writers to our website blogs.  Thank you to the few of you who send periodic contributions that fund this website and allow our outreach programs to continue.  There are children alive and being fed and schooled today – because of you.  May our dear Father bless and watch over you all as we worship Him in Yeshua’s mighty name.  – 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.
