My work associate kept telling me that I needed to send for the booklet What is the Mark of the Beast? Well, I finally did write for the booklet. It showed me the clear scriptures that Saturday was the Sabbath and a part of God’s law. The scriptures were:
“Therefore you shall lay up these my words in your heart…and bind them for a sign upon your hand” (Deuteronomy 11:18).
“Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you” (Exodus 31:13).
I was so excited to learn of God’s Sabbath as “Saturday” and started refusing to work on Saturday. Ironically, I had gone to work on that earlier Saturday. It was as if God said, “No, you are going to begin to learn on this Sabbath at your workplace not to work on Saturday!” I contacted Worldwide Church of God and began studying every booklet I could get. Soon I was visited by a minister and invited to attend church. (In those days one must be invited to attend the now disintegrated Worldwide Church of God.) So, for two years I rejoiced in the Sabbath and meeting brethren and devouring literature of God’s truth. Oh, and the sign I had prayed for, I forgot all about looking for it. Then about two years later, I was again going over the above scriptures and suddenly realized “SIGN! Wow, God sent me His sign in a couple weeks after my prayer request! It took me two years to realize He had answered my prayer for a sign within a couple weeks!!!
