A Sign and a Seal of the Righteousness of Faith ?

mountain sky1The 7th Day Sabbath –

     “Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I Am God, and there is none else.”
This is the message written in nature, which the Sabbath is appointed to keep in memory . . . . No other institution which was committed to the Jews (Israel – the children of Abraham, ref: Galatians 3:6-7) tended so fully to distinguish them from surrounding nations as did the Sabbath.

God designed that its observance should designate them as His worshipers . . .in Spirit and in Truth !”      ref: John 4:24

When the Lord bade Israel hallow His Sabbaths, He said, “They shall be a sign between Me and you, that ye may know that I Am Jehovah (Yehuwah) your God (Elohim – Mighty One) !”      Isaiah 40:18-29; 41:10; 45:22; Ezekiel 20:20 and Exodus 31:12-17

2016 – Pope calls for a “One World Religion !”

     “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship (obey, yield homage to) him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world. If any man has an ear, let him hear . . . !”
     Revelation 13:8

     “When the leading churches of the United States, uniting upon such points of doctrine as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and to sustain their institutions, then Protestant America will have formed an image (likeness) of the Roman hierarchy, and the infliction of civil penalties upon dissenters will inevitably result. . . .

     The enforcement of Sunday-keeping on the part of Protestant churches is an enforcement of the worship of the papacy. . . .

     In the very act of enforcing a religious duty by secular power, the churches would themselves form an image to the beast (Revelation 13:1-18); hence the enforcement of Sunday-keeping in the United States would be an enforcement of the worship (service, homage) of the beast and his image.” –

Great Controversy, p.445-449 (1911 edition)

     “When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism (Eastern mysticism), when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions . . .  Then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near !”

Satan’s Masterpiece of Deception ?

In a previous article addressing the Sunday law and its chain reactions, we focused on the sequence of final events. In this article we will be focusing on how the final scenes will come about and how Sabbath keepers will be brought onto the world stage. But before we look at this final study, there are some questions that need answers.

HOW COULD HINDUS, BUDDHISTS, HUMANISTS OR ATHEISTS SUPPORT ENFORCED SUNDAY OBSERVANCE?

     If the USA would enact a national Sunday law today, how many countries around the world would follow her lead? For example, how could Hindus or Buddhists, humanists or atheists support Sunday observance? And how supportive would the secular society in America and Europe be if they were deprived of Sunday shopping or sporting events? John prophesied that in the end time, “all the world wondered after the beast ” (KJV, Revelation 13:3).

     We read that “foreign nations will follow the example of the United States [the second beast of Revelation 13]. Though she leads out, yet the same crisis will come upon our people in all parts of the world” (White, Testimonies Vol 6, 395). 

But how will these things happen?

In our world today, it hardly seems possible that one day secular people, who don’t believe the Bible and who believe that we arrived here as a result of a cosmic big bang, could ever support Sunday observance. Perhaps we can find our answer from inspiration. The Bible says Satan “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 a sword, and did live” (KJV, Revelation 13:14). This tells us that the whole world will be deceived by the miracles that will be wrought.
“Satan has long been preparing for his final effort to deceive the world . . . Little by little he has prepared the way for his masterpiece of deception in the development of spiritualism. He has not yet reached the full accomplishment of his designs; but it will be reached in the last remnant of time” (White, Great Controversy, 561). 

DECEIVED BY COUNTERFEIT MIRACLES TO SUPPORT A COUNTERFEIT SABBATH

To summarize, it will be the great miracles performed through the full development of spiritualism that will deceive the whole world, and if possible, even the very elect. And Satan’s final personation of Christ will be his ‘trump’ card by which he will deceive the world into making void the law of God. Note the following: “Fallen angels upon earth form confederations with evil men. In this age antichrist will appear as the true Christ, and then the law of God will be fully made void in the nations of our world. Rebellion against God’s holy law will be fully ripe. But the true leader of all this rebellion is Satan clothed as an angel of light. Men will be deceived and will exalt him to the place of God, and deify him” (Testimonies to Ministers, 62).

Here is depicted the vast confederacy of Satan, his evil angels and evil men. And Satan himself will personally supervise his crowning act of deception to enforce the counterfeit Sabbath. In fact, the whole world will see Satan, transformed into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14) walking among them, performing miracles and duplicating the works and teachings of Christ.

SATAN’S CROWNING ACT OF DECEPTION

“As the crowning act in the great drama of deception, Satan himself will personate Christ. The church has long professed to look to the Saviour’s advent as the consummation of her hopes. Now the great deceiver will make it appear that Christ has come. In different parts of the earth, Satan will manifest himself among men as a majestic being of dazzling brightness, resembling the description of the Son of God given by John in the Revelation” (Great Controversy, 624). We are told that this will be a strong, almost overmastering delusion. (Note: this passage appears in the chapter of Great Controversy entitled “The Time of Trouble.” However, in reading the context beginning on p. 623, it becomes obvious that these pages are describing events before probation closes.) 

The following passage further elaborates Satan’s act of deception:  

Disguised as an angel of light, he will walk the earth as a wonder-worker. In beautiful language he will present lofty sentiments. Good words will be spoken by him, and good deeds performed. Christ will be personified, but on one point there will be a marked distinction. Satan will turn the people from the law of God. Notwithstanding this, so well will he counterfeit righteousness, that if it were possible, he would deceive the very elect. Crowned heads, presidents, rulers in high places, will bow to his false theories. (Fundamentals of Christian Education, 471, 472).

We are warned that Satan will also have his angels personate the apostles of Christ to counter the Sabbath truth. Note the following: “The apostles, as personated by these lying spirits, are made to contradict what they wrote at the dictation of the Holy Spirit when on earth” (Great Controversy, 557). 

This new and apparently more exalted religion presented by Satan and his agents will become common ground to unite both deceived Christians and the secular minded:

Papists, Protestants, and worldlings will alike accept the form of godliness without the power, and they will see in this union a grand movement for the conversion of the world, and the ushering in of the long-expected millennium (Great Controversy, 588,589).  

This will be hailed as the path to world peace. But what about those who worship Buddha, Confucius, or other deities? How can they be deceived? And what about atheists who support Communism or Marxist philosophies? What will persuade these people to join the grand movement to usher in the long expected millennium when they have not believed in or anticipated such an event? 

SATAN’S PLAN FOR DECEIVING NON-CHRISTIANS

It seems from the following statement that Satan’s angels will also personate the deities of these non-Christian religions. “As we near the close of time, there will be greater and still greater external parade of heathen power; heathen deities will manifest their signal power, and will exhibit themselves before the cities of the world” (Testimonies to Ministers, 117-118).

If Buddha, Karl Marx or John Lenin suddenly appeared to the masses in China, to impoverished and repressed populations, or to idealistic individuals, and advocated a union with the new ideology, souls would be readily deceived. Without a knowledge or faith in the Scriptures, they would have no safeguard against the strong delusions of Satan and his angels. Revelation 16:13-14 depicts three unclean spirits going forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world to unite them into one confederacy of evil. The power of spiritualism will overwhelm the world.

SATAN DESIGNS A PLAN SPECIFICALLY FOR SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS

The next pressing question should be how will Satan’s delusions and miracles affect professed Seventh-day Adventists? Ellen White was shown that Satan has softened the minds of Seventh-day Adventists so they will succumb to his masterpiece of deceptions. She saw that Satan had “so concealed himself from view” that many hardly believed he exists. “And when he makes another advance move, they will not consider him as their enemy . . . but they will consider him a friend, one who is doing a good work” (Testimonies Vol 5, 294).

She also wrote, “ I have been shown that evil angels in the form of believers will work in our ranks to bring in a strong spirit of unbelief . . . These powers of evil will assemble in our meetings, not to receive a blessing, but to counterwork the influences of the Spirit of God . . .  In this time evil angels in the form of men will talk with those who know the truth. They will misinterpret and misconstrue the statements of the messengers of God” (Selected Messages Vol 3, 410, 411).  

This will be a time of great peril to God’s church. We are warned that when the son of deceit and false witness is entertained by a church that has had great light “that church will discard the message the Lord has sent, and receive the most unreasonable assertions and false suppositions and false theories. Satan laughs at their folly, for he knows what truth is. Many will stand in our pulpits with the torch of false prophecy in their hands, kindled from the hellish torch of Satan” (Testimonies to Ministers, 409).

How will the majority of church members react to these deceptions that have come into the church? “In the crisis, they would see force in specious reasoning that has had an influence on their minds . . . When the law of God is made void the church will be sifted by fiery trials, and a larger proportion than we now anticipate, will give heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils” (Selected Messages Vol 2, 368). 

Probably most Seventh-day Adventists feel secure against Satan’s personation of Christ, his masterpiece of deception, because they know that Satan will not be able to duplicate Christ’s coming in power and glory. However, suppose that Satan would declare that he, as Christ, hasn’t come in power and glory to resurrect the dead and take everyone to heaven with him, but rather to help enlighten the world with a revelation of his love and goodness in an effort to prepare the world for his second coming by teaching the masses of non-Christian faiths we’ve failed to evangelize? How would professed believers respond when their senses strongly indicate Jesus is indeed here? 

Like us today, Adam and Eve were warned about Satan’s plan to deceive them. Perhaps Eve would have fled temptation had she seen Satan appear as a fallen angel lingering around the tree. However, she was caught off guard and entered into conversation with him, and as a result she was beguiled and captivated by Satan’s sophistry. 
 
Satan’s masterful delusion will take place before the image to the beast is enforced. Who can stand in these last days? The answer is, “His truth shall be thy shield and AD Vindicatebuckler” (Psalm 91:4).

The Truth About Christmas ?

     “I charge you therefore before God, and the Lord (our Sovereign King) Jesus Christ . . . Who shall judge the quick (living) and the dead at His soon appearing . . . Preach the Word; be instant in season, and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine . . .

     For the time will come when they (the church) will not endure sound doctrine (teaching, instruction from God’s Word) . . . . But after their own lusts (carnal, worldly desires) shall they heap to themselves teachers, which have itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the Truth (God’s Word – John 17:17), and shall be turned unto fables . . . !”     II Timothy 4:1-4

We encourage every son and daughter of the LORD God,Almighty to seek Light from the Word of Truth, and search the Scriptures for themselves. Let us examine all that we do, and all that we call Christian in the Light of God’s Word, lest we be found futilely attempting to justify pagan practices in the name of Christ Jesus.

I have shared a few good resource sites below, and also encourage each of us to stand for Truth, regardless of what others choose to do . . .

Our Wilderness Like Eden . . . !

     “For the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) shall comfort Zion . . . Yea, He will comfort all her waste places. He will make her (your) wilderness like Eden, and her deserts (your dry and barren grounds) like the garden of the LORD . . . . Joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody !”     Isaiah 51:1-3

     “Then the heathen (unbelievers) that are left round about you ________ (your name) shall know . . . that I the LORD build the ruined places, and I plant that which was desolate . . .   For I the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) have spoken it, and I will do it !”
Ezekiel 36:36

     It is our Saviour’s great desire that each of us, as His sons and daughters, will take hold of these precious promises for ourselves, that through faith in Christ, our families, our marriages, our homes, and congregations may testify to the mighty power of the God we love and serve !

     Please contact Eric or Sarah Wilson to schedule a speaking engagement or presentation, or if you would like for us to send you more of these wonderful promises from the Word of the Living God.

The Open Door – Our Atonement at Calvary ?

resurrection2     “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He first loved us . . . and sent His Son to be the propitiation* (atonement) for our sins . . . !”
I John 4:9-10 and 4:19


The Mercy Seat is Opened to All

Christ was nailed to the cross between the third and sixth hour, that is, between nine and twelve o’clock. In the afternoon He died. This was the hour of the evening sacrifice. Then the veil of the temple, that which hid God’s glory (ref: Exodus 33 and 34) from the view of the congregation of Israel, was rent in twain from top to bottom. 

     Through Christ the hidden glory of the holy of holies was to stand revealed. He had suffered death for every man, and by this offering (II Corinthians 4:4-6 & Hebrews 10:10-20) the sons of men were to become the sons of God . . . Continue reading

Christian Tai-chi . . . Is this possible ?

     “This then is the message (Glad Tidings, Promise) which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you . . . . that God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all !”
I John 1:5

Each of us shall have to face this last great deception, which is said will take the world as “an overwhelming surprise.” And even now we are witnessing the subtle delusions being brought in among God’s children, through the teachings of these Eastern mystical teachings, and Spiritual Formation.

    We encourage every Christian to examine closely the foundation of their faith. Compare all that you hear with the Word of the Living God. For the Devil has come in like a flood, through not only practices like Tai-chi, Qigong and Yoga, but now through the Eastern philosophies which are being taught to our children from grade school through college.

Please share these clips with all that you are able. And pray in faith that the eyes of all may be opened to see the Light and glorious Truth of the Word of the Living God !

Our Lord (Sovereign King) and Saviour Jesus Christ is coming very soon. Let us all be ready to meet Him !

The Righteousness Of Faith !

     “For the Promise, that He should be the heir of the world . . . was not to Abraham, or to his Seed* through the law, but through the righteousness of faith !”
Romans 4:13-21 and ref: Galatians 3:16 and 3:27-29

     “Several have written to me, inquiring if the message of Justification* by faith is the third angel’s message, and I have answered . . . It is the third angel’s message in verity !

The prophet declares, “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.” Brightness, glory, and power are to be connected with the third angel’s message (Revelation 14), and conviction will follow wherever it is preached in demonstration of the Spirit.

     How will any of our brethren know when this Light shall come to the people of God? As yet, we certainly have not seen the Light that answers to this description. God has Light for His people, and all who will accept it will see the sinfulness of remaining in a lukewarm condition . . . !”
– Review & Herald, April 1, 1890

     “What is Justification* (to declare, to render innocent, holy and righteous) by faith? It is the work of God in laying the glory of man in the dust, and doing for man that which it is not in his power to do for himself.

Our Freedom – Signed in Blood !
