Which commandment alone of the Decalogue reveals the true God and Author of the law?
"Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shall thou labor, and do all thy work: but the seventh
day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shall not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy
daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: for
in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day:
wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it." Verses 8-11.
NOTE-The fourth commandment alone reveals the name, authority, and dominion of the Author
of this law. In six days, (i) the Lord (name) ; (2) made (office, Creator) ; (3) heaven and earth (dominion).
This commandment alone, therefore, contains "the seal of the living God." By what is revealed in this
commandment is shown what God is referred to in the other commandments. By the great truth revealed
here all other gods are shown to be false gods. The Sabbath commandment, therefore, contains the seal of
God; and the Sabbath itself, the observance of which is enjoined by the commandment, is inseparably
connected with this seal; it is to be kept in memory of the fact that God is the Creator of all things; and it is
itself called a "Sign" of the knowledge of this great truth. Ex. 31: 17; Eze. 20: 20.
