FAST APPROACHING - SUNDAY LAW BY POPULAR DEMAND:
The financial state of the United States and other nations is very bleak. The numbers are horrifying. Economic conditions promise to become catastrophic, and under such circumstances, the masses will be desperate for solutions, solutions that the papacy and Religious Right are already urging. Satan is working to bring about a state of things so cataclysmic that people will demand passage of a national Sunday law.
"It will be declared that men are offending God by the violation of the Sunday sabbath; that this sin has brought calamities which will not cease until Sunday observance shall be strictly enforced; and that those who present the claims of the fourth commandment, thus destroying reverence for Sunday, are troublers of the people, preventing their restoration to divine favor and temporal prosperity." GC 590.
It will also be claimed that "the enforcement of Sunday observance would greatly improve the morals of society." GC 588. This is occurring as we speak.
Pastor Hal Mayer recently commented:
"Remember that eventually the people, under great fear and pressure of dramatically changed circumstances, will demand a Sunday worship law, and the supreme court will go along with them to defend it." - KTF Ministry.org.
"The whole world was converted and in harmony with the Sunday law." - 3SM 428 (1884).
"Political corruption is destroying love of justice and regard for truth; and even in free America, rulers and legislators, in order to secure public favor, will yield to the popular demand for a law enforcing Sunday observance." - GC 592.
"As the Sabbath has become the special point of controversy throughout Christendom, and religious and secular authorities have combined to enforce the observance of the Sunday, the persistent refusal of a small minority to yield to the popular demand will make them objects of universal execration. It will be urged that the few who stand in opposition to an institution of the church and a law of the state ought not to be tolerated; that it is better for them to suffer than for whole nations to be thrown into confusion and lawlessness." - GC 616.
