    1. Why is it that the majority of "sola scriptura" Christians observe Sunday as sabbath while the 4th of God's Ten Commandments specifically states that the "Sabbath is the 7th Day."

    (Recall that the close of the book of Revelation describes "the saved" as those who "keep the Commandments of God" and "have the faith of Jesus.")

    2. It seems that the most reasonable method of prophetic interpretation is the "historical" one. It is this method that leaves NO gaps in the flow of prophetic events.

    (The concocted methods of preterism and futurism leave the individual in limbo.)

    Dear George,

    I don't believe most Christians think they are observing Sabbath on Sunday. I think very few minority would think Sunday is the Sabbath. A day of worship is not the same as the Sabbath day.

    Christians likely meet on Sunday, because:

    (1) The example is they met on first day of the week

    (2) Christians can worship any day, and many choose Sunday.

    Maybe your question is why do most Christians not celebrate the Sabbath on Saturday:

    (1) Colossians 2:16, 17

    (2) Jesus healed others on the Sabbath

    (3) Jesus challenged the Pharisees in how they observed the Sabbath and redefined it for them: Mark 3:4, Mark 2:27

    (4) Matthew 5:17-18 (fulfilled but not abolished). Many will say the 10 commandments still apply, like it's still just as wrong to kill someone, but a % may say the 4th commandment (keep Sabbath) may not still apply.

    That is to help answer your first question, but I didn't understand your second one.
