Days of Week
In God's calendar the names for the days of the week are given in Genesis chapter 1.
There are 7 days in a week. The names for the days of the week are the first day, second day, third day, fourth day, fifth day, sixth day and seventh day.
In the Bible and God's calendar, there are no Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays etc. Try as I might, they were never listed in the Bible. I encourage you to search for "Sunday" etc in the whole Bible. It simply isn't listed.
The days of the week in the Bible according to how many working days have elapsed. For example: In God's calendar, the first day of the month is a new moon and a holy day, a day of rest. The next day is a work day, and it is called the "first day". The next day is the "second day" - the second day of work, and so on until you reach the "seventh day" on which you rest.
God's calendar has the months based on the moon. Each month may have 29 or 30 days in it depending on when the new moon occurs. A year is made of 12 months and a third of a month.
God's month consists of the new moon day (the first new moon and God's day of worship) and 4 weeks. The four weeks consist of 6 working days and 1 day of rest (the seventh day sabbath - a day of reset). The 7th day sabbaths are always on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th days of each month. Since the month begins with each new moon, the seventh day sabbaths have no correspondance with pagan days of the week like Sunday, Monday, Tuesday etc. which belong to the later Julian and Gregorian calendars.
To match lunar cycles with the year, there are 7 months added every 19 years.
Old Calendars - Understanding History
The pagan Roman calendar during Jesus's time consisted of 8 days. This is what the Romans used to determine their feasts and holidays. The week days were identified with the letters: A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H, making for 8 week days.
The Julian calendar was based on the Roman calendar and originally had 8 days per week.
Later, the Julian calendar system was changed to 7 days, named after pagan gods.
Julian and Gregorian calendars which have an unnatural (does not coincide with moon) 30 or 31 days in each month. In fact, as a kid I learned the rhyme: "30 days have September, April, June and November. All the rest have 31, except February which has 28 and 29 on a leap year."
Amazingly, the "seventh day" and seventh day sabbath is never called Saturday nor Sunday because the seventh day (after 6 consecutive days of working) does not land consistently from month to month on any of the Gregorian and Julian calendar days of the week.
I have never found the prophets, Jesus Christ, apostles or disciples ever teaching to worship on Saturdays or Sundays or Thursdays etc. They gathered on fellowship days in the temple and rested on seventh day sabbaths. Please note that I say "seventh day" sabbaths and not "seventh day of the gregorian or julian calendar days. The days are numbered after the day of rest.
Many people teach to worship on 7th day of the week. But they are referencing from the pagan calendar system of Sunday, Monday etc of which the Bible does not teach. And while they teach the pagan 7th day of week worship or 1st day of the week worship, the Bible does not teach this. Also the Bible teaches worship on first day of month (God's month of new moon), but these false teachers do not practice what Bible teaches.
Very importantly, the Bible teaches to work 6 days. Following this 6 days of working before resting is also a teaching of God, but not of common Saturday and Sunday worshiping people. They focus so hard on worshiping on Saturday or Sunday (which Bible doesn't teach) but neglect 6 days of working before day of rest.
Gregorian and Julian Calendar Days of Week
In the Gregorian and Julian calendar systems, they have endless days of the week that are named after the gods that pagans believed were predominately reigning during that day.
In the Gregorian and Julian Calendars, you have Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday etc in an endless loop. You will never have two Sundays in a Row. Mondays always follow Sundays. You will never go from Sunday to Tuesday. The calendar year has an endless rotation of the 7 days of the week that are named after pagan gods.
