Remember the Sabbath to Keep it Holy –

7th day 2The Sabbath: How Do We Know Which Day It Is ?

I took a tour of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, USA, a while back, and my guide said that “the Declaration of Independence was signed in this room on July 4, 1776.” But he went on to explain that only one part of that statement was true. I love history, so standing merely a metre from where Thomas Jefferson had been seated in Independence Hall filled me with awe, and I thought perhaps I had misunderstood the man’s words. “It was not signed that day,” the guide said. “There was a war going on; they had more important things to deal with.”

On July 2 (and not the fourth), Congress unanimously approved the Declaration of Independence. But the vote was for a much altered document, with multiple passages crossed out, some words added and numerous corrections. It was definitely not suitable for framing or public display. The final draft was presented to Congress on July 4, which they then ratified as correct. On July 19, Congress ordered final “engrossed” copy, that is, one written in a large, clear hand. That’s the one on display at the National Archives, but this final copy wasn’t actually signed until August 2. 

Discovering that the signing of the Declaration of Independence didn’t take place on July 4, 1776, got me thinking about dates, days and, being a pastor, the Sabbath.

The Belly of the Beast . . . !

     “God has His workmen in every age. The call of the hour is answered by the coming of the man. Thus when the Divine Voice cries, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” the response will come, “Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8.

Let all who labor effectually in the canvassing field feel in their hearts that they are doing the work of the Lord in ministering to souls who know not the Truth for this time. They are sounding the note of warning in the highways and byways to prepare a people for the great day of the Lord, which is so soon to break upon the world.

We have no time to lose. We must encourage this work. Who will go forth now with our publications? The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) imparts a fitness for the work to every man and woman who will co-operate with divine power. All the requisite talent, courage, perseverance, faith, and tact will come as they put the armor on. A great work is to be done in our world, and human agencies will surely respond to the demand. The world must hear the warning. When the call comes, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” send back the answer clear and distinct, “Here am I; send me.”

– Testimonies, Vol. 6, pages 329-333. {CEv 26.2} 

What is the Mark of the Beast ?


And this gospel (Glad Tidings) of the Kingdom (Sovereign Reign) shall be proclaimed in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come . .

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet (Daniel 11:28-45 & 12:1-13), stand in the holy place . . . who so readeth let him understand. Then let them which be in Judaea flee to the mountains . . . !”
Matthew 24:14-21 & Luke 21:8-28

     “God has revealed what is to take place in the last days, that His people may be prepared to stand against the tempest of opposition and wrath . . . . Those who have been warned of the events before them are not to sit in calm expectation of the coming storm, comforting themselves that the Lord will shelter His faithful ones in the day of trouble. We are to be as men waiting for their Lord, not in idle expectancy, but in earnest work, with unwavering faith.
It is no time now to allow our minds to be engrossed with things of minor importance. While men are sleeping, Satan is actively arranging matters so that the Lord’s people may not have mercy or justice.

The Sunday movement is now making its way in darkness. The leaders are concealing the true issue, and many who unite in the movement do not themselves see whither the undercurrent is tending. Its professions are mild and apparently Christian, but when it shall speak it will reveal the spirit of the dragon. It is our duty to do all in our power to avert the threatened danger. We should endeavor to disarm prejudice by placing ourselves in a proper light before the people. We should bring before them the real question at issue, thus interposing the most effectual protest against measures to restrict liberty of conscience. We should search the Scriptures and be able to give the reason for our faith. Says the prophet: “The wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.”  – 5 Testimonies, p.452

The mark, the number and the name ?

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (the day of the Lord Jesus Christ) shall not come, except there come a falling away (apostasy) first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition (destruction, destroyer) . . .

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God (deity), or that is worshipped (served or obeyed); so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God ! . . . Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, i told you these things ?”
