SUNDAY LAWS AND ECUMENISMA FAST SPREADING TREND

Written by Dionne Sabbay Thompson March 17, 2011 (Revised) Revelation 13:3, 12 speaks of a deadly wound healing. Since 1798, with the occurrence of Frances godless ideology, the earths inhabitants have been under the influence of rising godless ideology please see Spirit of Prophecy volume 4 p. 191. Americas freedom of religion remains fairly new, relative to Papal Romes kingdom and its 1260 year reign. The time period of 1260 is mentioned seven times in the bible and seven is the number of completion, emphasizing the completeness of the scriptures in prophecy, highlighting the delay of Gods work and its closure Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 11:2,3; 12:6,14; 13:5.1 In no land had the spirit of enmity against Christ and the truth been more strikingly displayed than in giddy and godless France.2 The two Witnesses referenced by John the Revelator are the Old and New Testament mentioned in Rev. 11:3.

A Theocracy, per the Oxford Dictionary (American edition) is a form of government by god directly or through a priestly order. A Theocracy implements religious laws within its political governing system, requiring compliance from all its citizens. There are many who seek to erase the Decalogue, Gods character Transcript: however, attention must be called to this serious matter, as no human can erase what God writes with His finger Exo. 31:18. Gods Ten Commandments mentioned in Exo. 20 are the original Immutable, Divine Moral laws, but what is its counterfeit? History reveals that in 321 AD Emperor Constantine enforced (by law) a counterfeit Sunday-Sabbath, which consequently caused seventh-day Sabbath keepers to be martyred for non-compliance.

Conversely, the Waldenses or the Vaudois, were known for their compliance to the seventh-day Sabbath, and they were the first of Europe to receive a translated copy of the Holy Scriptures, possessing it hundreds of years before the Reformation see Great Controversy pg. 65. The Great Controversy pg 68 reveals that these individuals were known to congregate beneath the shadow of mountains, in the Alpine valleys of Europe: The Vaudois churches, in their purity and simplicity, resembled the church of apostolic times. Rejecting the supremacy of pope and prelate, they held the Bible as the only supreme, infallible authority. Their pastors, unlike the lordly priests of Rome, followed the example of their Master, who came not to be ministered unto, but to minister. They fed the flock of God, leading them to the green pastures and living fountains of his holy Word.3 The persecutory, murderous acts that emerged following the Enforcement of Sunday laws caused torture and death for many Waldensians who were labeled heretics.

Today, Catechism of the Catholic Church misinterprets Gods holy-finger written Ten Commandments. The third commandment is completely revised and the Lords Day or Sun-day, the day of the Sun, is inserted please see p. 524.4 Gods fourth commandment regarding His non-negotiable, sanctified Sabbath day of rest is replaced with a directive for children to honor their parents Ibid. see p. 530-31.5 This is problematic as the authentic, genuine Sabbath was instituted by God, our self-sustaining Creator: and, it is immutable or unchangeable Gen. 2:3, Exo. 20:11. Mans tradition should never seek to supersede Gods Decalogue, as such a ordinance will remain in effect for eternity: and, it is housed in the holy of holies, the second apartment of the heavenly sanctuary Gen. 2:3, Exo 20:8-11, Psa. 111:7-10, Heb. 9:4, Rev. 22:18-19. The above mentioned literature upholds self-focused directives regarding Sunday as a day of: rest, meditation, relaxation, cultivation of mind and body. These self-oriented principles undermine Gods sanctified Sabbath day of rest.

Papal Romes historical edicts and encyclical documents have never met Jehovahs nonnegotiable standards. Historically, after Christs ascension to heaven in 31AD Christianity apostatized, gradually conforming to paganism and its heathen practices Great Controversy p. 384.6 This caused the emergence of the infamous Dark Ages, under the earthly jurisdiction of the kingdom of Papal Rome. Such an issue of apostasy is evident today, under the guise of Ecumenism: and, its ground-work will lead to a far worse persecutory-time than the Middle ages of times past. Contrary to Gods loudcry message, Ecumenism seeks to include all in its universal, Babylonian worldwide congregation Rev. 18:1-5. Ecumenisms totalitarian, all-inclusive strategies point to a dangerous, unsanctified trend: and, its ultimate goal will evidence a change of times and laws; an action prophesied by Daniel within Dan. 7:25. Deceptively, this will lead to the Mark of the Beast, Enforced Sunday law; a day that will appear lamb-like in its focus on family values and lawful order Rev. 13:11-18. Mimicking the proceedings of the past, Papal Romish systems (beginning in the United States of America) will seek to use force by instituting a death decree while withdrawing protection from citizens who honor the divine, genuine, biblically-supported laws of God Exo. 20. Its enforcement

and penalties will be an indication to Gods remnant church that Christ is on the verge of completing His Priestly, intercessory duties: and, He will shortly thereafter be returning to reap His righteous Remnant Lev. 23:33-44, Dan. 12:1, Matt. 22:1-36, Mark 4:29, Eph. 5:21-33, Rev. 3:7-13, 14:14-16.
