Frequently Asked Questions

Why What kind of name is that?

Exodus 20:11. "For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth and the sea and all that is in them, and He rested on the seventh day, therefore He blessed the sabbath day and made it Holy." So, 4in6 is just shorthand for "for in six." It points to the Creator and His provision for creation. Yes, God made the heavens and the earth and the sea and all that is in six days no less, just as He said. Then He rested, setting up a pattern for mankind, ultimately pointing to His son, Jesus Christ, who offers complete rest to those who repent and place their faith in Him. The fourth commandment requires rest on the Sabbath. But it is this commandment, along with the others, that reveal our sinful condition. Paul said, "I had not known sin but by the law!" Nobody can keep the Sabbbath as prescribed. Just try it (in spirit and in truth of course)! The violation was death. And it still is apart from Him in whom we find rest. The commandment is not nullified in the new testament, on this side of the cross. It is fulfilled! Certainly not by gathering on Sunday as is the practice of the Church. That is a fine and fitting practice but it doesn't matter when you gather, rather, that you do not forsake gathering. We rest in the finished work of the Messiah, the Holy One of God, Jesus the Christ, who's work on the cross paid the penalty for our sin. You can't work your way to God. Now, go read what Jesus said in Matthew 11:25-12:8. Then read Hebrews 4! I tell you, "the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath!"

Are you sabbartarians or Seventh Day Adventists?

Nope, none of the above. In fact, quite the opposite. You might also want to check out the first FAQ concerning the name 4in6, but, essentially, the Lord Jesus Christ fulfilled the law, including the fourth commandment, but did not do away with it or any of the others (Matthew 5:17). For example, concerning the seventh commandment, Jesus said, "You have heard it said, 'Do not commit adultery.' But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman lustfully has committed adultery with her in his heart." That's from Matthew 5:27-28. Jesus is essentially laying forth the conditions of worship in spirit and in truth. Later in Matthew's gospel, Jesus declares that He is Lord of the Sabbath. He also beckons all who are weary to come to Him to find rest. All who have repented and placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior have entered into His rest. They have ceased from their works based righteousness and are resting in His atoning work on the cross. His perfect righteousness (e.g., He didn't lust, not once) is credited to us by faith in God's promise given through Him to us. Quite literally, death was the penalty for violating the Sabbath rest and it still is! If you do not cease from your labor to find peace with God and rest only in His, eternal death awaits. I recommend you go and read Hebrews chapter 4 right now. Then read Romans 5.
