Video: The SDA People are BLIND to Sunday Laws

On my main website I have discussed in many Newsletters, blog entries, videos, sermons and radio broadcasts the fact that Sunday Laws are in fact being discussed and promoted all over the world. In fact, back in 2009 when I noticed an uptick in such articles I decided to create a page on my website just for these articles. And keep in mind, I don't go looking for these articles. I scan the news sites globally 6 days a week to find prophetic events happening in the news on many topics and quite often I come across articles about Sunday laws and so I share them when they come up if in fact they're not a repeat of a similar article because redundancy makes for a boring compilation.

Now I am not going to post all the article headlines I have on that page because it would make this blog entry way too big. But I did scroll some of my favorites on the screen in the video I made yesterday. But they're just a small fraction of what I have on that page, not to mention the thousands of other articles all over my website before I created the growing compilation page.

The reason I am posting this blog and made the video is to point out how blind the SDA people have grown to become when it comes to prophesied events. And it doesn't help any when their Church president says things like he did on camera.
 
There are actually OVER 1.3 BILLION articles about Sunday Laws all over the Internet and I have many of them linked out on my Sabbath attack page and even more linked out within the articles themselves because there really is that much information regarding Sunday Laws and their soon arrival.
As I intimated earlier I also have some old and current blog entries as well as some old Newsletters that I have posted over the years both on and offline regarding the global plans of the Popes and their political cohorts in every nation regarding his mark and how people all over the planet are talking about his desire for Sunday laws in the last 9 years alone. And who can forget John Paul II's statement within his globally published Dios Domini that says; " Christians will naturally strive to ensure that civil legislation respects their duty to keep Sunday holy."

That all being said, the list of articles that are scrolling in the video I linked out above are only a fraction of the headlines I have touched on over the last few years and a much smaller fraction of what's actually on the Internet as we speak. And again there are just too many to post in a video because even with a high end computer system the software I use to make my videos simply can't handle such a load and will slow to a crawl if I made this as large as it needs to be to show all the headlines I have compiled on just one page online.

And so, for those of you still in the SDA church I reach out to you in as much love as I can muster from deep within, as you see these articles scroll by in that video, think about what's actually happening out there and then as you contemplate all this; remember what your Church president Ted Wilson said just one year ago in that video.

Also notice what one of your main church pioneers said not too long ago…

  • "The voice from Battle Creek, which has been regarded as authority in counseling how the work should be done, is no longer the voice of God." -Manuscript Releases 17:185 (1896)
  • "It has been some years since I have considered the General Conference as the voice of God." -Manuscript Releases 17:216 (1898). 
  • "That these men should stand in a sacred place, to be as the voice of God to the people, as we once believed the General Conference to be–that is past". -Last Day Events 50.4
"The church that holds to the word of God is irreconcilably separated from Rome… It is a backsliding church that lessens the distance between itself and the Papacy." ST February 19, 1894, par. 4

#15 A new world order will be established
Almost seven years ago, I did a Newsletter on the way so many events were coming together recently regarding a one world government or as both Hitler and the present Pope like to call it, a new world order. Lately however the move towards globalization has been moving at a quickened pace especially in the Western Hemisphere. Seeing how the European Union is now reality, this union that mimics the eventual global standard, they have been testing all sorts of strange laws and control methods so as to bring about the papal desire across the globe. As some of you may be aware, I cover much of this on my NWO page (
http://remnantofgod.org/Rev17.12.htm) on the website. Still, for the sake of tying this series together regarding the nearness we are in according to the end when our King comes to take us home, a quick recap of the most important aspect of that page is in order, especially since new developments have come to light over the years right here in America, Canada and Mexico that proves this to be their agenda.

As we saw back when Ratzinger was placed as pope, immediately the One World Government scenario seemed to be on his A-List and then on every leading politician's list as well. And rightly so, seeing how Satan controls this man's every move, including his recent resignation. Prophecy does declare a one world government is needed so as to ensure the enforcement of the mark of the beast comes off without a hitch for all those in power. In prophecy we find rather plainly the following facts…

  • Revelation 17:12, "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast."

Notice how the following document actually uses the same terminology of Revelation…

Adaptive Model of the Global World System
 "The Club [of Rome] had its beginnings in April of 1968, when leaders from ten different countries gathered in Rome... The organization claims to have the solutions for world peace and prosperity...The Club of Rome has been charged with the task of overseeing the regionalizaton and unification of the entire world... "The Club's findings and recommendations are published from time to time in special, highly confidential reports, which are sent to the  power-elite to be implemented. On 17 September 1973 the Club released one such report, entitled Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the  Global World System... The document reveals that the Club has divided the world into ten political/ economic regions, which it refers to as 'kingdoms.'"

Those ten kingdoms have already been identified quite recently…

The Ten Kingdoms of the New World Government

Kingdom 1: Canada and the United States of America
Kingdom 2: European Union - Western Europe
Kingdom 3: Japan
Kingdom 4: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Israel and Pacific Islands
Kingdom 5: Eastern Europe
Kingdom 6: Latin America - Mexico, Central and South America
Kingdom 7: North Africa and the Middle East (Moslems)
Kingdom 8: Central Africa
Kingdom 9: South and Southeast Asia
Kingdom 10: Central Asia

Question: A friend told me I have to sell all I have and give to the poor or I won’t be right with God. He also said that the tithing system was abolished when Jesus came to earth.

ANSWER:
Your friend is mistaken. The reason the Lord told the rich man to sell all he had and give to the poor is because that man had a problem with riches. Truth is, to gain such riches back then, like today, usually meant they got them while breaking God's law. Also like many today, he was idolizing his wealth. So like plucking out the eye, or cutting off the hand for those that sin with the eye or hand, Jesus was merely telling the man to put away his riches if he is ever to gain Heaven. In today's world there are some that idolize video games, porn, music, etc. If you had many video games that pulled you away from Christ as did the riches of the rich man, then you would have to get rid of your video games.

The Word says…
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10.  {UL 29.1} 

SOP says…
     Both large sums and small sums are to be looked upon by you as God's entrusted treasure. When you are thinking of expending means, pray over the matter, in order that you may use the Lord's goods in a way that shall please Him. The Lord would have all who claim to be His followers imitate His example. We are a spectacle to the world, to angels, and to men. Unbelievers are watching those who profess to be the children of God to see if they are in reality that which they profess to be. Is it consistent for us to talk of Christ's self-denial, of His self-sacrifice, and yet walk and work contrary to His example? The treasures of the world are the Lord's. They are all His both by creation and by redemption.  {UL 29.2} 

     Why is it that riches are called "unrighteous mammon"? It is because through riches men are made subject to temptation, to deal unjustly, to use them as they shall please in gratifying their desires, and in fulfilling that which their imagination calls for. Those who are in possession of money are in danger of putting the Lord's goods to a wrong use, and by this means they are led to forget God. . . . The rich young ruler thought that he loved God until Jesus revealed his idol to him, and showed him that he was making a god of his possessions. He had come to Christ asking, "What lack I yet?" The answer was, "Sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me" (Luke 18:22). . . .  {UL 29.3} 

     Those who have the Lord's talents of means are placed under a heavy responsibility. They are not to invest money merely for the gratification of selfish desires, for whatever is spent in this way is just that much kept from the Lord's treasury. Through the sovereign goodness of God, the Holy Spirit works through the human agent, and causes him to make smaller or larger investments in the cause of God, to make them redound to the glory of God.  {UL 29.4} 

    

Whenever you think of using the Lord's money for your own selfish gratification, remember that there are many who are in deep poverty who cannot purchase either food or clothing, and [that] they are God's heritage. We are to do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. If those who have abundant means are God's agents in dealing in truth, they will use their treasures wisely, so that none of the household of faith need to go hungry or naked.--Letter 90, Jan. 15, 1895, to a Seventh-day Adventist woman of considerable means.  {UL 29.5}

Matthew 18:15-17 clearly says, "Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.  But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.  And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican."

Continuing from last month...

The Gideon band is hated because we WILL speak the truth no matter how many feathers are ruffled.

Truth is, those of us that are bold know a blessing will be ours for doing so. Not only does Ezekiel declare "thou hast delivered thy soul" and James 5:20 says our obedient actions "shall hide a multitude of sins" we also know as 1Peter 2:20 says, “For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.”

If it makes our Father smile, then all can rest assured that those bold enough to be obedient will be those that will do exactly as He has written we shall do in His Word.

  • Proverbs 27:5-6, "Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful."
  • Proverbs 27:17, "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."
  • Ephesians 5:11, "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."


Christ’s Methods in Church Discipline
In dealing with erring church members, God's people are carefully to follow the instruction given by the Saviour in the eighteenth chapter of Matthew. {CCh 255.6} .

Human beings are Christ's property, purchased by Him at an infinite price, bound to Him by the love that He and His Father have manifested for them. How careful, then, we should be in our dealing with one another! Men have no right to surmise evil in regard to their fellow men. Church members have no right to follow their own impulses and inclinations in dealing with fellow members who have erred. They should not even express their prejudices regarding the erring, for thus they place in other minds the leaven of evil. Reports unfavorable to a brother or sister in the church are communicated from one to another of the church members. Mistakes are made and injustice is done because of an unwillingness on the part of someone to follow the directions given by the Lord Jesus. {CCh 256.1}

"If thy brother shall trespass against thee," Christ declared, "go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone." Matthew 18:15. Do not tell others of the wrong. One person is told, then another, and still another; and continually the report grows, and the evil increases, till the whole church is made to suffer. Settle the matter "between thee and him alone." This is God's plan. "Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbor hath put thee to shame. Debate thy cause with thy neighbor himself; and discover not a secret to another." Proverbs 25:8, 9. Do not suffer sin upon your brother; but do not expose him, and thus increase the difficulty, making the reproof seem like a revenge. Correct him in the way outlined in the Word of God. {CCh 256.2}

Do not suffer resentment to ripen into malice. Do not allow the wound to fester and break out in poisoned words, which taint the minds of those who hear. Do not allow bitter thoughts to continue to fill your mind and his. Go to your brother, and in humility and sincerity talk with him about the matter. {CCh 256.3}

Whatever the character of the offense, this does not change the plan that God has made for the settlement of misunderstandings and personal injuries. Speaking alone and in the spirit of Christ to the one who is in fault will often remove the difficulty. Go to the erring one, with a heart filled with Christ's love and sympathy, and seek to adjust the matter. Reason with him calmly and quietly. Let no angry words escape your lips. Speak in a way that will appeal to his better judgment. Remember the words: "He which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins." James 5:20. {CCh 256.4}

Take to your brother the remedy that will cure the disease of disaffection. Do your part to help him. For the sake of the peace and unity of the church, feel it a privilege as well as a duty to do this. If he will hear you, you have gained him as a friend. {CCh 256.5}

All heaven is interested in the interview between the one who has been injured and the one who is in error. As the erring one accepts the reproof offered in the love of Christ, and acknowledges his wrong, asking forgiveness from God and from his brother, the sunshine of heaven fills his heart. The controversy is ended; friendship and confidence are restored. The oil of love removes the soreness caused by the wrong. The Spirit of God binds heart to heart, and there is music in heaven over the union brought about. {CCh 256.6}

As those thus united in Christian fellowship offer prayer to God and pledge themselves to deal justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God, great blessing comes to them. If they have wronged others they continue the work of repentance, confession, and restitution, fully set to do good to one another. This is the fulfilling of the law of Christ. {CCh 257.1}

"But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established." Matthew 18:16. Take with you those who are spiritually minded, and talk with the one in error in regard to the wrong. He may yield to the united appeals of his brethren. As he sees their agreement in the matter, his mind may be enlightened. {CCh 257.2}
