- When was the Sabbath changed from Saturday to Sunday?
Daniel 7:25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and he shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time. (The personal pronoun “He” is referring to the papacy in the Roman Catholic Church. The only law in the Ten Commandments which is related to time is the Sabbath). A time, times and half a time is referring to prophetical time, which is the same as 1,260 years in prophecy. This time is referring to the Dark Middle Ages from 538 A.D. to 1798 A.D.
There is a quote in the Roman Catholic Catechism stating that the Roman Catholic Church is responsible for changing the Sabbath day from Saturday to Sunday. Enclosed is the following quote:
