Sunday Law

In a previous blog, I wrote about Sabbath, I want to get into it a bit more in depth. The Sabbath is the first institution that the Lord set up. The Bible repeats over and over how important it is and how we should keep it holy, do not forget the day, and not do our own pleasures on that day.

Satan, of course, was not pleased that people were worshipping God on this Holy day so he had to make a counterfeit. The Devil is clever and he knew if he made Sunday worship a certain way people would want to celebrate on that day. Satan first made the day a celebration day, basically a party day. It was so different from what people were doing on Sabbath, where they had very strict guidelines on what could and couldn’t be done on the Sabbath. Soon a lot of people didn’t want to worship on Sabbath at all and just worshipped on Sunday.

There has always been a group of people who kept God’s holy day, throughout all of history; the apostles continued to do it after Jesus went back to heaven and other small groups of people kept that day faithful no matter what was happening or the consequences it brought when they kept that day.

We are told in the Bible that in the end days, right before the close of this wicked world that Satan and his followers are going to get a mark called the mark of the beast. God’s children will also receive the Seal of the living God to show that they follow His commandments. How do we know what these seals are?

If we go through scriptures it shows what a seal is and how we can know for sure what it is talking about. First off what does it take to make up a seal?

The Sabbath commandment contains elements not contained in any of the other commandments. It states the name of the Lawgiver (LORD), His territory (heaven and Earth), and His title (Creator). These three components comprise what is known as a seal, and lend authority to the law. The Ten Commandments gain their validity only from the royal seal of the Creator God embodied in the Sabbath commandment.

In ancient times, kings were required to ratify decrees or commands with the royal seal (1 Kings 21:8). Without a royal seal, no law would be valid. Moreover, even with a royal seal, a law is only valid in the area of the king’s jurisdiction. For example, Canadian law is not applicable in Switzerland. So in a sense, it can be said that without a seal, no law would be valid anywhere. The law of the Ten Commandments is no different.

Exodus 20: 8-11 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

So with the Sabbath being the seal of God, Satan needed a mark as well, he doesn’t get a seal because he doesn’t rule over anything, the Lord has dominion over the whole world. Satan has the Mark of the Beast, and you can tell what it is by the Bible as well.

Daniel 7:25 – And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: …

he-shall-speak-words-against-the-most-high-and-shall-wear-out-the-saints-of-kjv-38506

What power has tried to change times and laws? When you look through history there is only one power that fits this description, and that is the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church was the one to change Sabbath as the day of worship to Sunday, with no Biblical support, they say so themselves in their books. My next question is if the Catholic is the beast, what is the mark the Bible is talking about?

Revelation 13:16,17 – And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

The powers of this earth will unite with the powers from beneath to oppress God’s people. In the Revelation, John writes: “I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by the sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads; and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” {ST, November 7, 1900 par. 9}
When Satanic agencies shall unite with the professed Christian world in opposing God, these words of the prophet will be fulfilled. In blind zeal “the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child; and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for My name’s sake; but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.” {ST, November 7, 1900 par. 10}

A time is coming when the law of God is, in a special sense, to be made void in our land. The rulers of our nation will, by legislative enactments, enforce the Sunday law, and thus God’s people be brought into great peril. When our nation, in its legislative councils, shall enact laws to bind the consciences of men in regard to their religious privileges, enforcing Sunday observance, and bringing oppressive power to bear against those who keep the seventh-day Sabbath, the law of God will, to all intents and purposes, be made void in our land; and national apostasy will be followed by national ruin. We see that those who are now keeping the commandments of God need to bestir themselves, that they may obtain the special help which God alone can give them. They should work more earnestly to delay as long as possible the threatened calamity. If, in our land of boasted freedom, a Protestant government should sacrifice every principle which enters into its Constitution, and propagate papal falsehood and delusion, well may we plead, “It is time for thee, Lord, to work, for they have made void thy law.” Some may think that because it has been revealed in prophecy that our nation shall restrict the consciences of men, it must surely come; and that if we make an effort to preserve our liberty, we shall be acting the part of unfaithful servants, and thus come under the condemnation of God. {RH, December 18, 1888 par. 6}

“The decree enforcing the worship of this day is to go forth to all the world. IN A LIMITED DEGREE, IT HAS ALREADY GONE FORTH. In several places the civil power is speaking with the voice of a dragon, just as the heathen king spoke to the Hebrew captives.” (ST, May 6, 1897 par. 15) 1897

“As America, the land of religious liberty, shall unite with the papacy in forcing the conscience and compelling men to honor the false sabbath, the people of every country on the globe will be led to follow her example.” –6T 18 {LDE 135.1}

Those quotes are very clear that the mark of the beast is a Sunday law that is going to go into effect and at first it will be light, but then as worse and worse calamities fall on the earth, the law will become more strict until the world will want to kill everyone who follows the Sabbath day. There will be people who will die for the truth just like in the Dark Ages. There will be people who survive to the very end. Some will be tortured and put in prison, but whatever happens to God’s people we can know that it will be worth it and that Jesus is coming to take us to Heaven where there will be no more pain or suffering.

We can not go to heaven if we do not keep God’s Sabbath. We will be celebrating Sabbath in the New Earth, and it is also our duty to share the Sabbath truth with everyone so that they know the truth. Even those people who know the Sabbath have forgotten how to keep it.

People are laughing and talking about all sorts of worldliness on the Sabbath, they are playing games, joking, fooling around. Listening to and watching whatever, they are also going out to eat and doing whatever they want on the Sabbath. That is a mockery to God and is in no way keeping the Sabbath holy.

We have a duty to keep our minds and hearts on Jesus, the day is to be spent in prayer, Bible study, walking in nature, passing out literature, & singing hymns. All worldly conversation needs to stop, and for 24 hours our minds need to be lifted wholly on Jesus. Would you have the same conversations if you knew that Jesus was standing right beside you? Let me tell you that He knows, hears and is in that room whether you see Him or not.

The Sabbath is holy and we need to remember, and we need to help others remember as well. If the subject somehow begins to wander off topic then we need to help remind one another that it is the Sabbath and to bring the topic back onto spiritual things.

This is of the utmost importance, this isn’t a joke, this is very serious. The Sunday Law is already on the books, they almost passed it once before. In some countries they have passed mini Sunday laws, such as Germany, you can Google and see how many other countries have done it as well.

America is preparing to pass a mini Sunday law, it is hidden under the Climate change law, they call it a family day, to ease people into the idea. We don’t have any time to be playing games. We don’t have time to disregard the Sabbath, we need not only to tell the world about what is to come but we need to remind our brothers and sisters in the faith and ourselves that time is going fast, and the end is here.

Yes, bad things are coming but the Lord will see us through, no matter what may become of us, whether we live or die the one sure thing is that we need to make our hearts and lives right with the Lord.

The time of trouble is soon to break upon us, and the decree will go forth that everyone who will not keep the first day of the week shall be put to death. Those who have not regarded the Sabbath as they should, who have exalted their business above God’s commandment, will trample upon the Sabbath and keep the first day of the week, because they have consulted their own convenience before the honor of God. They did not learn to bring themselves into harmony with the Sabbath, but sought to bring the Sabbath to meet their own convenience. With the preparation they have made, they are no more fitted to stand in the day of judgment than the greatest sinner. Their ideas are confused; they have tried to serve God and mammon; they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Those who love God with all the heart, and their neighbor as themselves, will be the only ones who will stand the test of the decree. When Satan brings his power to bear upon half-hearted professors, he will sweep them over to his side, he will claim his right to do with them as he pleases. But of those who honor God, the Lord says, “They shall be mine, . . . in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.” {ST, June 2, 1890 par. 5}

With all that being said, I pray that you will consider and pray about what you just read, this is a very important matter, and I highly recommend that you read more about it in the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy. There are so many quotes about what is to come, let us watch and be ready. We need to let the Lord take over every part of our lives and get ready for what is about to come. Please pray for me as I pray for all of you.
