FATHER’S DAY

The day known as Father’s Day was first organized in 1910 by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, WA. It was not until 1966 that president Lyndon Johnson proclaimed it a national holiday to honor fathers. Celebration is often with alcoholic spirits.
The day known as the Lord’s Day was first mentioned by the apostle John as recorded in Revelation 1:10 in these words: “On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit.” “The Lord’s day” only appears here in all the Bible, and Bible scholars say that beyond all doubt it refers to the first day of each week. It is similar in construction to the words “the Lord’s supper” in I Corinthians 11:20, meaning belonging to the Lord. It did not refer to the Jewish sabbath, Saturday, the 7th day of the week. That day had no significance to Christians. That old Jewish system had been abolished, canceled when Jesus was nailed to the cross (Lk 23:54; Col 2:14-18; Heb 8:6-14; 2 Cor 3:6-14). Sunday, the first day of the week, is the day Christ arose from the dead. He appeared to His disciples later on this day. The Holy Spirit came on this day. It has always been the Christians’ regular meeting day (Acts 20:7; I Cor 16:1-2; Heb 10:25). Let nothing remove the Lord from His day, whether sleep, family, sports, travel, etc.
