“For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings...” - (Mal.4:1,2).
“And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week...” - (Mk.16:2,9).
On Sunday at sunrise the Son of God rose from the dead. A new day dawned for the human race. Man could conquer death and have eternal life through the Lord Jesus Christ. The Sun of righteousness arose with the greatest healing ever, He rose from the dead and gave hope beyond the grave for the sons of men. Truly Sunday is Sonday, the Son of God day and no wonder He is worshipped worldwide on this day. We are God’s true Sonworshipers - amen. Truly Christ is the light of this world giving life to all that repent of their sins and believe on Him in their hearts by faith.
Absolutely nothing can live on planet earth without sunlight. And absolutely no human can achieve immortality without Christ, the Sun of righteousness. The Lord Jesus Christ is God is human flesh - “Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto...” - (I Tim.6:16). God created the sun to give outward physical light and Christ gives us inward spiritual light when He saves us and baptizes us with His Holy Spirit.
Sunday is the day of Christian worship of the Son of God in honor of the first Sunday when He rose from the dead. Sunday is the weekly celebration of His resurrection. Yes, Sunday is truly Sonday.
Christ came to bring light to a world of darkness and sin and death. “In him was life; and the life was the light of men. That was the true light, when lighteth every man that cometh into the world” - (Jn.1:4,9). But only a remnant will come to the light of Christ with a humble and contrite heart and believe on Christ in their heart and be saved. “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light...” - (Jn.3:19-21).
Our personal Sonday is the day we’re born again and receive the light of God inwardly. Jesus said - “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” - (Jn.8:12). Jesus said that the born again children of God are children of light. “While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light” - (Jn.12:36). Again - “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness” - (Jn.12:46). It’s Sonday everytime somebody is born again, no matter what day of the week it is.
When New Jerusalem comes down from heaven after the Millennium, Jesus Christ will be the light of it - “And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof” - (Rev.21:23). What a glorious Sonday that shall be.
Our “Sun of righteousness” is coming back again. He shall arise “with healing in his wings.” At the end of the world, at Armageddon, when all the wicked, proud, unsaved shall burn up as the chaff of God’s human harvest, our Sun of righteousness shall return in glory. He’s described with wings because He will return with His army of saints, all dressed in white riding flying white horses - (Rev.19:11-19). We shall rule and reign on this earth as kings and priests beneath our great King of Kings and High Priest in His kingdom of righteousness. This is part of our “inheritance of the saints in light” - (Col.1:12).
Are you a child of light? Have you been saved and born again in Christ? If not, do not continue on in the darkness of your sins. Repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith and you will be saved from hell and become a new born again creature in the light of Christ. “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins...” - (Acts 26:18). If you do not get saved and receive the light of Christ, then you will go to hell, a place of total darkness - “And cast him into enter darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” - (Mt.22:13). O do not spurn the love and grace of God in His beloved Son on the cross or the wrath of God abides upon you. Be saved today and have your own personal Sonday and be born again and walk in newness of life in Christ.
