If John, therefore, referred to a day of the week, on what day must he have been in the Spirit?


The seventh day.
NOTE - No other day of the week in all the Bible is claimed by God as His day. During the
second, third, and fourth centuries of the Christian era, when apostasy came in like a flood, men, without
any warrant or command of Scripture, thinking to do honor to Christ and despite to the Jews who crucified
Christ, began to neglect the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and to honor the day of the week on
which Christ rose from the dead, the first day, as "the Lord's day," until finally the Sabbath was almost
wholly lost sight of, and the Sunday quite generally took its place. But there was no more warrant for this
change in the divine and unchangeable law of God than there was for other errors and changes which crept
into the professed Christian church during this same time, such as abstaining from meat on Friday in honor
of the crucifixion; Mariolatry, or the worship of the Virgin Mary; the mass; purgatory; indulgences; prayers
for the dead; saint-worship; and the human vicarship of Christ. There was no more divine authority for one
than for the others. All came in through apostasy. The Bible knows but one true and living God, one
Lawgiver, one Mediator between God and man, one Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, one body, one Spirit,
one hope, one faith, one baptism, and one Sabbath. See Jer. 10:10-12; Rev. 14: 6,7; 1 Tim. 2:5; Eph. 4:4-6;
Ex. 20:8-11.
