Pope pushing for Sunday Laws
By Nicholas
May 28, 2008



Last Sabbath (May 24, 2008) a long time friend of the ministry shared some research he had done regarding the Vatican's recent push towards Sunday laws in a sermon he shared with us in our online interactive home church services. I would like to share some of his findings in this Truth Provided "weekly" Newsletter along with some facts I uncovered over the years that further confirm his findings. If you would like the complete list of Vatican quotes regarding their push for Sunday Laws, click here to see that growing list of quotes on my "Words of a Beast" page.

Many have stated our prophetic definition of the "mark of the beast" as we Sabbath keeping Christians describe it to be, is bogus. For those that are unaware of what I am talking about; we declare, and can prove, using both Scripture and historic records that the Roman Catholic Sunday sabbath admitted to have been invented by the Vatican to be in fact the mark of the prophecied beast in Rome. I will not go into a long description of that information here because there are links all over this site about that prophecy. Truth is, the Vatican actually admits Sunday to be their mark in many books and booklets they have printed over the years so as to flex their ecclesiastical muscles before those that don't read or trust bibles, in the hopes of pulling them into apostasy with them. In fact, they recently declared in writing the following...

"Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act... And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things." H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons.

"Sunday is our MARK of authority. . .the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact" Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1,1923

This is all part of their long sought after ecumenical movement. Many believe that movement started a few decades ago. Nothing can be further from the truth. Long ago the prophet Daniel spoke of a beast that would seek to change the Law of God, and in so doing gather all the world to "wonder after" him. (Revelation 13:3,4)

For this Newsletter we will concentrate on the Law because this is the final major prophecy against the people of the world. It is being played out before the eyes of billions, but because they don't open bibles and read as the Prophet Amos predicted in Amos 8:11 to be a Christian fruit today, they are completely unaware of the danger they are facing head on.

  • Daniel 7:25, "And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time."

This happens to be the most graphic prophetic characteristic of Antichrist to date. It has been playing out since 321AD when the infant Roman church changed the Sabbath from the 7th day to the 1st day of the week so as to appeal to the Pagan populace.

"Confiding then in the power of Christianity to resist the infection of evil, and to transmute the instruments and appendages of demon worship to an evangelical use... the rulers of the church from early times were prepared should occasion arise, to adopt, or imitate, or sanction the existing rites and customs of the (Pagan) populace." -Development of Christian Doctrine, Cardinal Newman. p. 372

"In order to attach to Christianity great attraction in the eyes of the nobility, the priests adopted the outer garments and adornments which were used in pagan cults." -Life of Constantine, Eusabius, cited in Altai-Nimalaya, p. 94

Thanks to John Paul II's influence in the United Nations (U.N.) a few years ago. An influence that not only gained him global respect, but a permanent voice in the U.N. as well, that can by the way fashion global law. Keep in mind, the Roman Church is the only "religion" represented in the U.N. So whatever their plans are, the U.N. will naturally go along with them. When the U.N. leaders speak on a "spiritual" level they are speaking of Roman Catholicism because that church is the only religious entity on their books! To speak of any other religion would be voted down because it is now unanimously agreed by all nations that the Vatican has been given that "religious" position in the U.N. Whenever the "spiritual" or "religious" topic comes to the table, it is the Vatican that is sought out for "moral" advice. Now do you see why it had to be a woman (church) on a beast? (nation)

 "The time has come to obtain peace on this planet...the United Nations Charter has to be supplemented by a charter of spiritual laws....      "I think that what is wrong...[is that] we have forgotten...we have a cosmic evolution and [spiritual] destiny." Robert Muller, quoted in The Seduction of Christianity, p 53-54, by Dave Hunt.

Now that Rome has the throat of the U.N. in her talons, it has become child's play for her to gather all nations into her camp. This become obvious when we saw how quickly all nations clamored to John Paul II after he was "blessed" by the U.N. with a permanent observer seat. From just under 80 nations in agreement with Rome to 174 in just a few short years, we see why they needed to go for the jugular so quickly in global politics. This landslide of approval worldwide was expected by this ministry as well as many others after that U.N. announcement. Their plans for global unity have already succeeded. Some will think that "complete" unity has not yet been achieved. This is true. But with the overwhelming majority already in her camp, nothing can stop her now. The prophecy is sure. It will happen!

"Once complete unity has been achieved, Christ--who will be the Omega Point--will appear; man will then be more than man, will be what Teilhard called Ultra-Human; the cosmos will be transformed; and the glory of it all will be established." The Jesuits: The Society of Jesus and the Betrayal of the Roman Catholic Church, p 288, by Malachi Martin.

Keep in mind. When a Jesuit speaks of Christ appearing he is not speaking of Jesus Christ. Luciferians, Wiccans, Pagans, Masons, New Agers and even Satanists call Satan "the christ." This "complete unity" is what they seek so as to bring about their evil messiah. Once he gets here, he will demand 100% unity, and those of us that refuse to follow after the Vatican sabbath will become targets of their wrath. The present pope himself has already declared us "the" problem for that long sought after agenda. Notice the list of quotes below. Notice especially the last quote listed to get an idea of the urgency of the matter.

Sunday “is the identity of the Christian community and the center of his life and mission”, that “we cannot live without joining together on Sunday”, that only those Christians “who lived in accordance with Sunday” have “attained new hope”, and that “the Christians of today will rediscover the crucial importance of the Sunday Celebration”. (Pastoral Visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Bari for the Closing of the 24th Italian National Eucharistic Congress, Homily of Pope Benedict XVI, Esplanade of Marisabella, Sunday, May 29, 2005.)

Saturday is “no longer” the worship day of God, only on Sunday can we become part of the body of Christ in the world, only by worshiping on Sunday can we avoid “egoistic isolation” and instead be united “in a great community...a universal community” becoming “related to everyone in the world.” (Meeting with Diocesan Clergy of Aosta, Address of Pope Benedict XVI, Parish Church at Introd (Aosta Valley), Monday, July 25, 2005.)

Social disorder, war, injustice and violence” can only be countered “by renewed appreciation and respect for the universal moral law [Sunday observance]...” (Address of Pope Benedict XVI to H.E. Mr Francis Rooney, New Ambassador of the United States of America to the Holy See, Saturday, November 12, 2005.)

Sunday is an “obligation for all the faithful” which brings “authentic freedom enabling them to live each day”, that it is the Lord’s day, that it is “a day to be sanctified”, and those who do not keep it suffer “the loss of an authentic sense of Christian freedom” and the loss of being “the children of God”, that Sunday is the “primordial holy day” and “is meant to be kept holy”, “a day of rest from work”, which hopefully “will also be recognized by civil society” by law. (Sacramentum Caritatis: Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation on the Eucharist as the Source and Summit of the Church's Life and Mission, Given by Pope Benedict XVI in Rome, at Saint Peter's, February 22, 2007, the Feast of the Chair of Peter.)

(the pope)
Encouraged America to exercise “its leadership within the international community” based on “the common moral law [Sunday holiness].” (Address of Pope Benedict XVI  to H.E. Mrs. Mary Ann Glendon, New Ambassador of the United States of America to the Holy See, Friday, February 29, 2008.)

The RCC “makes its contribution (in the ethical and moral sphere) according to the dispositions of international law, helps to define that law, and makes appeal to it”, that we live in a time when little groups of independent people threaten the unity of the world, and that the only way to combat this problem is by establishing law and then ordering all of society according to this law, thus promoting “peace and good will throughout the earth.” (Apostolic Journey to the United States of America and Visit to the United Nations Organization Headquarters, Meeting with the Members of the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization, Address of Pope Benedict XVI, New York, Friday, April 18, 2008.)

 for complete list

Notice the pope is declaring "little groups of independent people threaten the unity of the world." Who do you suppose he is speaking of here? We know it will be people that do not embrace his Roman sabbath of Sunday, because this has been their agenda for 1687 years. So, is it Muslims he is speaking of here? Reason I ask is because they do not worship on Sundays. No, it can't be the nations of Islam because there are 1.1 billion Muslims on earth right now. This is not a "little group" by any stretch of the imagination. If it's not the Muslim, is it the Hindu church he's speaking of that doesn't have any weekly worship day at all? Again, this isn't possible as they have upwards of 800 million in number. What about the Jewish faith that worships on the 7th day Sabbath? No, they too appear to be somewhat large in numbers. They have around 15 million at present, and they are by no means "independent" in nature as they have been joining with Rome on many things. Besides, they have already agreed to keep Sunday as a "day of rest" back in May of 2005. So they too are no threat to Rome. So, if it's not the Muslim, the Hindu or the Jew. Is the pope speaking of Sikhism with 19 million that also have no weekly worship day? No again. In fact all other non-Christian religions are no threat as they are not offering any resistance whatsoever to Rome's plans as is apparent by their actions.

The only other recourse is to look into the Christian denominations to find the "little groups." The only ones that stand out that don't worship on Sunday that could be a problem for Rome would have to be Seventh day Adventists (SDA) and offshoots of same. But the SDA church alone has just over 15 million members in over 200 countries. So, no the pope can't be talking about them either. Besides, the SDA church has already started to embrace Sunday as sabbath for quite a few years now. They have dozens of churches around the world that also worship on Sunday. So no, they aren't a "threat" to the Vatican and their agenda just as prophecy predicted. In fact, they are helping the Vatican in many ways now. Strange thing is, most of the offshoots of this church have embraced Roman doctrine as well, and even attacked those that have completely separated from the SDA church, who by the way have become independent solely upon Christ as their leader. It is those small independent churches, like the Seventh day Remnant (SDR) churches that the pope considers a threat. Just as prophecy predicted, the dragon (Satan) is no longer angry at the SDA church. (woman) He is now making war with the Remnant of her seed (SDR church) because we are the only ones standing firm in Christ.

  • Revelation 12:17, "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."

We don't embrace Roman dogma in any way as does all the other churches. We don't even carry the government 501C3 that gags the pulpits of the other churches. So we can speak freely on our pulpits and that is why the dragon is making war with us. We expose the Vatican quite boldly as you see by this website, and many others like it. So, when the pope speaks of "little groups" he is speaking directly to you and me, the Sabbath keeping Christian that stands with Christ alone.

As prophecied we will be tagged "the problem" that threatens global unity. The pope looks upon this as such a problem, that like John Paul II who called for civil laws to be passed to ensure Sunday is kept holy, this pope said in the above quotes that his demands, "will also be recognized by civil society” by law." So if you think he's kidding.. think again! This is why he has "Encouraged America to exercise “its leadership within the international community” based on “the common moral law." The "common moral law" of Rome is Sunday sabbath! Just as prophecy predicted, Sunday Laws will start in the USA. In fact they have been tested here since the 1960's with the "blue laws" Roman Catholic John F. Kennedy put into law.

By the way, We will also be tagged "the problem" when the natural and "not so" natural disasters start to get worse and worse. There will be an increase of all sorts of disasters all around the world. The Vatican will declare it is because we the "little groups" of Christians refuse to worship on Sundays that these disasters are happening. In fact, if you recall, as I reported back in my February of 2005 Truth Provided Newsletter, they have already tested the waters on this method of suggestion.

A Christian minister claims the tsunami of Sunday, Dec. 26, killing at least 160,000 people, was direct result of "pleasure seekers" breaking God's (Sunday) Sabbath.  ...no event since Noah's flood has caused such loss of life by drowning as the recent Asian tsunami. That so many of our fellow creatures should have perished in so short a time, and in so awful a fashion, was a divine visitation that ought to make men tremble the world over." ...It has to be noted that the wave arrived on the Lord's day (Sunday), the day God set apart to be observed the world over as a holy resting from all employments and recreations that are lawful on other days." -Posted: February 13, 2005

Rather amazing how bluntly accurate Christian prophecy is isn't it? To further set nails to this prophecied coffin of fulfilments, when George Bush Sr. was elected, his first act in office was to declare Sunday a "national day of prayer."

"In his first act as president Friday [January 20, 1989], Bush signed a proclamation making Sunday a National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving..." The Star News (Pasadena, California), January 21, 1989, p A-4.

     "I, George Bush (Sr), President of the United States of America, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 22, 1989 [Sunday], a National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving and call upon the citizens of our great Nation to gather together on this day in homes and places of worship to pray...Let all Americans kneel humbly before our Heavenly Father..." Copy of Proclamation: By the President of the United States of America, signed on January 20, 1989, by President George Bush, Sr.

Besides this being a violation of the separation of church and state, this president is demanding all Christians to sin against their God by following after the beast in Rome. Now yes, many reading may not look upon breaking the fourth commandment that has to do with Sabbath keeping as sin. But your own bibles define, "...sin is the transgression of the law." (1 John 3:4) You wouldn't murder, lie, steal or worship a false God, right? No, but for some reason Christians that keep nine of the ten commandments see no wrong in breaking the Sabbath commandment. The only commandment with a prophetic statement in it by the way! It's no mistake that commandment located in Exodus 20:8-11 starts with the word "REMEMBER." The Lord God knew we would be taught to forget it! How's that for a long term prophetic fulfillment!?

One more thing before closing this Newsletter. Notice this quote wherein the pope declares last month that Sunday sabbath is a "Law of God."

The world has greater need of hope for peace, justice and freedom, which “can never be delivered without obedience to the law of God [Sunday holiness]”. (Video-Message of the Pope Benedict XVI  to Catholics and People of the United States of America on the Occasion of the Upcoming Apostolic Journey,  April 15-21, 2008.)

This pope, and every pope before him knows full well that Sunday was never sanctified or blessed by God. In fact, I have numerous quotes on and offline wherein the popes ADMIT they are the ones that changed the Sabbath from day 7 to day 1. They use their own admission of changing it to lure Protestants back into their arms because ALL Protestant churches embrace Sunday as sabbath even though their own Bibles say otherwise. When the Protestant "realizes" they are doing as mother Rome, and not Scripture demand, they will re-join with her as they did before the Great Reformation. That is why so many jumped on board on June 26, 2000 when the One World Church began with the pope as leader!

I have a list of all Protestant denominations admitting the Lord never changed the Sabbath. This is why Rome feels they are "above the bible" as the second quote I shared at the start of this Newsletter declares. They believe this because the Protestant follows the popes over the Word of God. They truly do "wonder after the beast!" This is also why the present pope declared just last month that Sunday sabbath is a "law of God." He can now boast his changed was that of a god! That too was prophecied by the way.

Let me clarify.. He (the pope) knows God did not create or sanctify Sunday as sabbath. To prove he knows this, see what his predecessors have penned regarding this change...

"Is not every Christian obliged to sanctify Sunday and to abstain on that day from unnecessary servile work? Is not the observance of this law among the most prominent of our sacred duties? But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify." -James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (1917 ed.), pp. 72, 73

"The authority of the church could therefore not be bound to the authority of the Scriptures, because the Church had changed...the Sabbath into Sunday, not by command of Christ, but by its own authority." Canon and Tradition, p. 263

"The Catholic church," declared Cardinal Gibbons, "by virtue of her divine mission changed the day from Saturday to Sunday." Catholic Mirror Sept. 23 1983. (Official organ of Cardinal Gibbons)

For a pamphlet written by Rome on this spurious doctrine wherein they admit to the change.

So, the real truth here is, Sunday sabbath is not of the "Law of God" as the present pope declares. It is in the "Law of the church" we find this spurious doctrine. With that said, the pope did in fact BOLDLY declare Sunday sabbath as a law of "GOD." I ask... does not Christian prophecy state the popes will claim to be "God on earth?" Is this not what John prophecied as their lot in prophetic history?

  • Revelation 13:1, "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy."

And how is blasphemy defined?

  • John 10:33, "The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God."

The pope declares "his" Sunday laws to be the "Law of God." Is this a fruit of Ratzinger the man alone? Or is this the demon that posses all popes speaking?

"It seems that Pope John Paul II now presides over the universal Church from his place upon Christ's cross," said Bishop Dunn, who traveled with seven other prelates to Rome. Taken from an article entitled, "Auckland Bishop Says Pope Presides From the Cross" AUCKLAND, New Zealand, SEPT. 20, 2004 -Zenit.org (Article # ZE04092001) (Also note the term "Universal Church" is now being used!)

"The Pope is of so great dignity, and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God. and the vicar of God." -Ferraris Ecclesiastical dictionary

"All names which in the Scriptures are applied to Christ, by virtue of which it is established that He is over the church, all the same names are applied to the Pope." - On the Authority of the Councils, book 2, chapter 17

"The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth." Pope Pius V, quoted in Barclay, Chapter XXVII, p. 218, "Cities Petrus Bertanous".

 "...the Pope is as it were God on earth, sole sovereign of the faithful of Christ, chief of kings, having plenitude of power." Lucius Ferraris, in "Prompta Bibliotheca Canonica, Juridica, Moralis, Theologica, Ascetica, Polemica, Rubristica, Historica", Volume V, article on "Papa, Article II", titled "Concerning the extent of Papal dignity, authority, or dominion and infallibility", #1, 5, 13-15, 18, published in Petit-Montrouge (Paris) by J. P. Migne, 1858 edition.

 Many more quotes on this

  • Prophecy said they would seek to change God's Law worldwide. Now, all Christians churches, except the Remnant Church, keep Sunday as sabbath. And all non-Christian churches have already agreed to do the same.
  • Prophecy said they would seek global laws to enforce this change. Back in January of 2002 talk of a "World Sabbath" began, and now, just a few short years later we see Sunday laws are already being "tested" in dozens of nations.
  • Prophecy said the  men controlled by the beast would claim to be God on earth. We now have scores of quotes from the popes claiming to be "God on earth." These very same men are the ones that have admitted to these changes and laws.
  • Prophecy also said they would join the church with the State to enforce religious laws. Just recently during the Katrina crisis we found all churches being forced by the Government to demand pastors help them enforce laws by twisting Scripture out of context on the public during disasters.

All the methods to enforce Sunday laws have been tried and tested in literally thousands of scenarios worldwide for the past few decades so as to have all the kinks ironed out for when they finally decide to drop the other shoe. It has gotten so obvious now that some that have ignored warnings years ago are emailing today asking what's up?

So.. I ask.. those that declare we are false prophets because we declare the mark of the beast to be Sunday Laws. Why are they doing exactly as Christian prophecy said they would?
