WHAT'S TRENDING

Sunday Agitation Everywhere Forecasts the Enforcement of the Mark of the Beast

In this extremely secularized age, when atheism is at an all-time high, it would seem impossible that there is a strong and growing movement favoring the resurrection of Sunday laws.  But to the contrary, it is the lack of morality and the degeneration of spirituality that is prompting the call from “conscientious” men and women all over, from the grassroots even to leaders in the Christian community. As crime increases and morality declines even further, the deplorable state of society is being attributed to men’s departure from God and his laws, which to the Christian world, excepting a very few, the observance of Sunday is an integral part of bringing the nation to God’s favor.  Sunday is not God’s Sabbath that he instituted blessed and sanctified; Sunday sacredness is a devising of the Papacy under the direction of Satan himself.  God enjoins the observance of the Seventh-day Sabbath; but even so, He does not force men’s conscience, neither does he sanction men to enforce it as law.  One thing is certain however, those who choose to dishonor God’s seventh-day Sabbath (or any of his other commandments), after having received knowledge of the truth, will be punished by God.  It is now that the people of God, to whom have been committed the grand truths of the everlasting gospel, should be boldly presenting the third angel’s message. 

 

“Heretofore those who presented the truths of the third angel's message have often been regarded as mere alarmists. Their predictions that religious intolerance would gain control in the United States, that church and state would unite to persecute those who keep the commandments of God, have been pronounced groundless and absurd. It has been confidently declared that this land could never become other than what it has been--the defender of religious freedom. But as the question of enforcing Sunday observance is widely agitated, the event so long doubted and disbelieved is seen to be approaching, and the third message will produce an effect which it could not have had before.”[1]

 

The movement for government-enforced Sunday observance is becoming more frequent and widespread.  In one article, written under the headline, “Remember the Sabbath [Sunday] day, to keep it holy,” the following statement is made: “How I long for the days when we had “blue laws” and no stores or restaurants were open. If Christians would obey the Fourth Commandment and stay out of stores and restaurants, then perhaps they would close on Sunday, due to lack of business, and all those forced to work on Sunday, for unnecessary services, would have a day to rest and worship.”[2]  The Juneau Empire published a piece in which the assertion is made that in order for the America to move forward is through the observance of the Sabbath, again, which they recognize as Sunday. “Let’s just say it; it’s been a rollercoaster of a week here in America. There have been people with opposing viewpoints, heated conversations, flat out arguments, deeply held beliefs mocked and swirls of speeches. Now many have serious and founded concerns about how will we move forward as a country? What can we do? As I have pondered this I have thought about the Sabbath Day. How can it help us? In April 2015, leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints began instructing members to observe the Sabbath with greater purpose…Observing a day of rest can be a blessing to our marriages, families and communities as well as for our very souls.”[3]

 

The cry for Sunday is not only being sounded in the United State, but also in Europe and other places around the world. The European Sunday Alliance, on November 15 put out a press release stating the following: “In addition, further individualization of working hours reduces synchronized free time such as a workfree weekend and Sundays in particular, which is of paramount importance for citizens, their families and their participation and engagement in society. By signing this resolution, I, as a Member of the European Parliament, a representative of civil society, trade unions, employer organizations, Churches and others, therefore commit myself to…Promote synchronized free time and a common weekly day of rest for all EU citizens, which shall be in principle a Sunday, in order to enjoy full participation… religious life, to seek cultural enrichment and spiritual well being, to engage in volunteer work and association activities and to strengthen social cohesion.”[4]

 

If individuals have any doubt as to whether or not the national Sunday Law will become a reality in the very near future, such persons are either in denial or choose to be willfully blind and ignorant of the prophecies of Revelation 13, the history of Roman Catholicism and its establishment of the first Sunday law and are naïve to the movements now afoot to restore Sunday sacredness.  Let not one of us be found among this group of scoffers.
