On July 7th 1998 The Vatican released the following
statement to all the churches of the world.
"Christians will naturally strive to ensure
that "civil legislation" respects their duty to keep Sunday
holy." -Section 67, "Dies Domini", July 7, 1998 - emphasis added.
For those of you of the Protestant
and non-Christian faiths, this statement doesn't seem to have much authority
behind it simply because you simply don't look upon the pope as your leader.
However, on June 26, 2000 the United
Religions Initiative was signed into what government leaders refer to as a
global law. Truth is, this is actually one of many global laws popping up lately.
At the signing of that document it became an all-inclusive international
reality that any pope sitting in the Vatican after that date is now considered
the universal moral authority over all churches with membership in the World
Wide Council of churches, which essentially rules over your locally known
National Council of Churches. This includes non-Christian churches that have
joined as well.
Thousands of years ago
the Christian bible predicted the Antichrist would seek to enforce unjust laws
so as to enforce its mark upon the people of this world. This ministry as well
as many others, have been preaching this day was coming for many years. Sadly,
even more ministries have been preaching that our message is a bogus
translation of the prophecies in Daniel and Revelation. Prayerfully, by the end
of this page you will have a clearer understanding of what the Truth is.
In the letter entitled
"Dies Domini" which is Latin for "The Lord's Day," we see
the pope demanding all Christians worldwide to respect and honor Sunday the
FIRST DAY of the week, instead of Saturday the SEVENTH DAY of the week, in direct
opposition to the Law of God. In other words, the pope is seeking religious
Laws that will be literally designed to force all people around the world to BREAK
the Laws of God and accept MAN'S TRADITIONS in its place. Scripture is plain
that we must "Beware lest any man spoil you through
philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of
the world, and not after Christ." -Colossians 2:8
Jesus said that we
should NOT, "...reject the commandment of God, that ye
may keep your own tradition." inMark 7:9 As bible believing Christians, we must never transgress
the Law of God. For it is written in 1 John 3:4 that, ".sin is the transgression of the law."
The pope is seeking to force us by using the law of the land to break Commandment
I am completely aware
that many preachers teach we are no longer under the law, but they do so
without Scriptural understanding of what that inspired term actually means.
It is a well known fact for
the last few decades that the majority of bible colleges the world over teach a
watered down version of the Truth so as not to offend mother Rome. To offend
Rome is to lose certain
benefits they simply cannot afford to lose. They stand to forfeit everything
from large Government subsidies to certain political advantages to say the
least. So, rather then do as their Creator God commands them when teaching the
students left in their care, they do as their idol tempts them to do. That idol
of course, being money. Doing so, they have forfeited the blessings outlined in
1 Peter 5:1-4, "The elders which are among
you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of
Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:Feed
the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof,
not by constraint, but willingly; not
for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;Neither as being lords over God's
heritage, but being ensamples to
the flock.And when the
chief Shepherd shall appear, ye
shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away."
So. what is Paul talking
about when he says were no longer UNDER the Law in Romans chapter six? What
does under the law mean? FIRST we need to define sin because this is the reason
for the issue of the Law being discussed.
The definition of sin= 1 John 3:4, ".sin is
the transgression of the law."
The penalty of sin = Romans 6:23, ".the wages of sin is
The cost of sin = 2 Corinthians 5:21, "For he hath made him
(Jesus) to be sin for us." And 1 Corinthians 6:20 says, "..ye are bought
with a price:"
Now that we know that
sin is breaking the commandment of God. Does the Word of God expound on the
"curse" of being "under the Law?"
Daniel 9:11, "Yea, all Israel have
transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy
voice; therefore the curse
is poured upon us. because we
have sinned against him."
Daniel is rather clear
here. To transgress the law means the CURSE is poured upon us. We are then
under the curse of the law when we break it!
Galatians 3:10, "For as many as are of
the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed
is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in
the book of the law to do them."
Galatians 3:13, "Christ hath redeemed
us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every
one that hangeth on a tree:"
Here it's made quite
clear to be a Christian we are REDEEMED from that curse. Jesus was "made a
curse for us" when He hung upon that cross. He did this so that we don't have
to DIE as the Law demands for anyone that transgresses it. And yes, you have
sinned, I have sinned, everyone has sinned, for ".it is written, There is none righteous, no, not
one:" (Romans 3:10)
My favorite passage on
explaining this biblical fact is.
Deuteronomy 11:26-28, "Behold, I set before
you this day a blessing and a curse; A blessing, if ye obey
the commandments of the LORD your God, .And a curse, if ye
will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, ."
So.. according to
Deuteronomy, there is..
A Blessing if you keep the Law
A Curse is you break it
The Old Testament
theology was never changed by Christ. In fact, Christ plainly stated in Matthew
5:17, "Think not that I am come to
destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to
fulfil." And how did He fulfill that law? We just read in Romans 6:23 that
the law stated the wages of sin is death, right? Galatians 3:13 just informed us that Jesus came to be that curse for us. He
fulfilled the requirements of the law for us by dying for us 2000 years
ago. It's that simple. Sin demanded a death as payment for sin, Christ paid
that price for us.
The curse is still there
for everyone that chooses to sin, and the blessing is still there for everyone that
chooses to obey. This is a LAW of God. How can such a thing change when this
very God stated clearly in Malachi 3:6, "For I am the LORD, I change not."
The God of Creation is
not like man where He makes mistakes and has to "change" things He couldn't predict
as a possible end result of His actions. Our God is a God that sees the end
from the beginning. (See Isaiah 46:10) The law of this God was NEVER done away
with. In fact, Luke 16:17 says, ".it is
easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail." Which
Law is this? The Law instituted long ago. ".This is the commandment, That,
as ye have heard from the beginning,
ye should walk in it."- 2 John 1:6
If you sin, you are then
under the curse simply because the Law can never be done away with. Jesus
Himself said, "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one
jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from
the law, till all be fulfilled." - Matthew 5:18. Common sense
affords us the reality that Heaven and Earth have not yet passed away. You are
standing on solid ground are you not? And the Heavens are still above your head
as well. So, according to Jesus Christ Himself, the Law is still valid.
If we transgress that law, we sin. If we sin, there must be a death for that
sin. This is the beauty of what He did on that cross. Romans 5:8 says,
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us."
2 Corinthians 5:14 says, ".if one died for all, then were all dead:" 1
Thessalonians 5:9-10 says, "For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to
obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,Who died for us, that,
whether we wake or sleep, we should
live together with him."
Now, some teach that
since Jesus already died, we no longer have to keep the Law. However, Romans 3:31 says, "Do we then make void the law through faith? God
forbid: yea,we establish the law."
The fact Jesus died, and we acknowledge that death, and gain forgiveness for
our sins, establishes the very Law they claim is null and void. How can they
say the Law is no longer valid when they themselves claim Jesus as their
SAVIOUR? If the Law was invalid, WHAT DID HE SAVE THEM FROM!? You cannot claim
Him as Saviour and at the same time claim the Law cannot exact payment for your
sins. If Jesus didn't die for you, then YOU must die for your sins instead. This
is why we must confess our sins. We will sin, and because of that sin we
deserve death. No getting around that. That is what's required for
transgressors of the Law. However, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful
and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness." -1 John 1:9 The fact that John is saying we STILL need
to confess our sins proves the law is still valid today.
The bible clearly
proclaims that the only way someone can end up UNDER THE LAW is when they BREAK
IT. What you do then is deny God's GRACE offered freely to you. How can you
still be UNDER GRACE, when sinning without a desire to repent and confess?
You're either under His grace after repentance
Or under the Law for refusal of same
are no gray areas here. Truth is truth.
Romans 2:12&13 "For as many as have
sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have
sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;(For not the hearers of the law
are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be
John 5:14, "Afterward Jesus findeth
him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin
no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee."
This verse amply proves that,
IF WE CHOOSE TO SIN after becoming followers of Christ, then a worse thing will
come unto us! This proves again the Law is still valid. The ULTIMATE verse for
this has to be the following...
Romans 1:5, "By whom we
have received grace and apostleship, for obedienceto
the faith among all nations, for his name:"
Yes, it's true we have
been blessed with grace in the age of the church. But according to the Word of
God, that grace is what helps us to
be OBEDIENT to the faith! "So speak ye, and so do, as they that
shall be judged by the law of
liberty." (James 2:12)
Look at Adam and Eve for
example. They are what man was meant to be before the fall. But WHAT was the
fall? They were disobedient. Many believe all they have to do is believe in
Jesus Christ to gain Heaven. They fail to realize that Adam and Eve SAW JESUS
face to face! They actually saw ".the LORD God walking in the garden in the
cool of the day:." (Genesis 3:8) That's why they hid from Him.
The fact is, they had no
problem whatsoever believing in Him because they had first hand evidence He
exists. It was disobedience that caused Adam and Eve's fall. If you feel just
believing in Jesus is sufficient to gain Heaven, then you are stating Satan
will be in Heaven as well. For it is common biblical knowledge that the
"devils believe and tremble,"- James 2:19.
Basic Christianity 101
tells us that we know Satan and his angels will not be in Heaven, yet they
believe in Jesus as the Son of God for they plainly stated so in Mark 1:24,
"Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of
Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I
know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God." So, again, just
"believing" He is Lord is not sufficient to gain Heaven. Anyone can believe..
Satan and his angels proved that.
Listen to the words of one
who is known as the end time prophet. He spoke much of our day thousands of
Ezekiel 33:13, "When I
shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his
own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall
not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall
die for it."
Iniquity is "KNOWN SIN."
If we are no longer under the law but under grace, and can continue in SIN as
many assume is ok to do, why does Ezekiel say they die for their KNOWN SINS? It
CAN'T be talking about sinners here because they simply DON'T know what sin is
UNTIL they find Christ and His perfect Law. For it is plainly written.
Romans 3:20, ".for by the law is the knowledge of sin."
Romans 7:7, ".I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said,
Thou shalt not covet."
It's no mistake Ezekiel
is speaking of the Ten Commandments here as well because he quotes from the
Commandments when he speaks of coveting. Ezekiel is talking about people
claiming to be God's people. Sinners that have no clue of what the law is simply
can't commit KNOWN SIN! Only believers can do that. Nonbelievers don't
know what sin is. Need I remind you of what Jesus said concerning some that
claimed to know Him?
Matthew 7:21-23, "Not every one that saith
unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that
doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me
in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy
name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me,
ye that work iniquity."
They called Him
"Lord" in this passage did they not? However, at the same time Jesus
called them workers of iniquity. Had they been simple sinners unaware of Christ
or His Law, they never would have called out, "Lord, Lord" either
would they? Being "Under Grace" means simply that. We are under the
good graces of our God not to sin.
For example... Picture
being pulled over by a cop for speeding. You are not "under" the law
until you SPEED. You broke the law and now the "curse" of the law is
your just desert, which in this case is the ticket. However, if you ask the cop
for mercy, and he gives it... are you allowed to speed now? No, of course not!
You are under his good GRACES right? So you are then extra careful NOT to break
the law. After thanking him for sparing you the ticket you don't pull away
spraying gravel all over the cop because you don't want to insult his MERCY
towards you. It's THAT simple.
Jesus taught us to
follow HIS example NOT mans! It is antichristian teaching to do as the pope
suggests. This is deadly to your eternal soul and mine if we transgress and ignore
the Law of God. Again, ".this is
love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye
have heard from the beginning,
ye should walk in it." [2 John 1:6]
By the way. "From the beginning" can't be said much
plainer. The Ten Commandments were there at the "beginning" were they not?
Abraham himself, many years before the Jews were given the Law in writing is
recorded as one who kept the Ten Commandments in Genesis 26:5
Genesis 26:5, "Because that Abraham obeyed
my voice, and kept my charge, my
commandments, my statutes,
Many claim that the Ten Commandments
are strictly a law for the Jewish people. Yet we just saw in Genesis biblical
evidence that many years before the first Jew was ever born, man kept the Ten
Commandments. Plus, the 4th Commandment concerning the Sabbath itself was
instituted in the Garden of Eden at least 2500 YEARS before the first Jew was
ever born. In the week of creation the Lord blessed and hallowed the Seventh
Day as a day to be kept holy to remember what He did that week as Creator. Adam
and Eve were created on day six. The very next day Adam and Eve kept Sabbath!
The Ten Commandments were already there thousands of years before the Jewish
nation came into existence.
Many also claim that the
Law was done away with at the cross of Christ. Yet if you were taking notes,
you would have noticed I quoted over a dozen verses so far that were written
many years after the cross of Christ that spoke of the Ten Commandments
as valid for the New Testament Christian. And no, we do not keep the Law of God
to get saved. We keep it because we are saved. In other words, keeping the Law
is the fruit Jesus said you will know us by.
I ask. Why do you
suppose the Devil would make such an open and apparent attack on the Ten Commandments?
Do you suppose there's something about the Law of God that is so important that
the enemy would try to hide it from us?
Galatians 3:24, "Wherefore the law
was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified
WE LEARNED THUS FAR.
The "schoolmaster" taught us
what sin is.
We are sinners unable to stop.
This knowledge revealed we
need a Saviour.
Do you recall back in
Romans chapter two it stated "..the doers of the law
shall be justified"? The Law of God tells us
to seek out Jesus to help us because we cannot do it without Him. Think about
the simplicity of that fact. Have you ever lied? Then you are guilty of breaking commandment number 9.
Have you ever stolen something? This includes change out of your mother's purse,
or a candy bar from your little brother. Then you have broken commandment # 8.
How about adultery? Now keep in mind, Jesus said in Matthew 5:28, "But I say unto you, That
whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her
already in his heart." That means if you just look at a woman or a man
lustfully you are breaking commandment # 7. This is why the devil uses sex to
sell everything from cars to candy bars. He gets millions to sin on a daily
basis! If you watch TV a lot, you may be sinning every hour on the hour. Sadly,
this goes double for those that cause others to sin. Not only are they sinning,
they cause others to sin by their provocative clothing, mannerisms, actions,
Proverbs 28:10, "Whoso causeth
the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: ."
Matthew 18:7, "Woe unto the
world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence
Can the Law save you? No
Look at it this way. Go
outside, roll in a mud puddle. Now walk back into the house and stand in front
of a mirror. The mirror does its job by showing you all the mud on your body.
Now, ask the mirror to clean all the mud off of your body. Can it do that? No, of
course not. All the mirror can do is show you that you have mud on you. Its
only purpose is to let you know you need to be cleansed.
In James chapter one we
see the Word depicts the Law of God as a looking glass where man can peer into
to discover his true condition. Like the mirror, the Law cannot make anyone
clean. Its sole purpose is to let us know where we need to be cleansed. It lets
us know we are filthy with sin. Mankind cannot clean this sin off. So the man
looking in the mirror of God realizes he is in need of one that can clean
him of this sin. He desperately wants to be clean because he knows sin clearly leads
to death. This is where Jesus comes in. The Law of God cannot remove our
defilement. It can only reveal we are defiled. And contrary to popular belief,
we cannot clean ourselves as some religions teach. Take the Roman Catholic
church for example. They declare we can gain Heaven by our good works. Yet it
says in Ephesians 2:9 that it is, "Not of works, lest any man should boast."
If we could do all this on our own, why did Jesus have to die such a horrible
death on that cross?
This strange demand of
the pope to seek laws to force us to openly break God's law is exactly the same
type of command that was being forced upon the children of God in Daniel
chapter three long ago. Three believers were put to the test in the very same
way we see the pope attempting to do to all believers today. They were commanded
by "government authority" to BREAK the commandment of God so
as to keep the laws put forth by mankind. In this case, the enemy of souls
tried to force them to break Commandment number 2 by putting forth laws forcing
the people to worship a golden idol built by King Nebuchadnezzar. We see
Daniel's three friends, "Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego" choosing
rather to face a fiery death in a furnace than break the Law of God
it be [so], our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning
fiery furnace, and he will deliver [us] out of thine hand, O king. But if
not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image
which thou hast set up." Daniel 3:17
As we know, the Creator God
did indeed deliver them from the fire of this furnace in a very graphic way for
all to see! In fact the king was so amazed at what was happening that he ran
towards the furnace to see what the Lord had done. He couldn't believe his
eyes. He actually saw the men walking around in the fire unharmed. Plus, Daniel
records that the king also saw the Son of God walking with the three believers.
Daniel 3:25, "He answered and said, Lo, I
see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no
hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God."
Later on, Daniel himself
was placed in peril in chapter six of that same book. Daniel chose to be thrown
into the lions den to be eaten alive rather than follow the unjust laws of the
land seeking to force him to break the first commandment of God. AGAIN, we see
the Almighty and ever living God of all creation delivering His trusting child
from the literal jaws of death! The Lord sent an Angel to actually SHUT the mouths
of all those hungry lions. Daniel was not harmed in the least that day.
Daniel 6:22, "My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt
me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before
thee, O king, have I done no hurt."
The book of Esther
records yet another law of mankind that was put into effect to exterminate all
of the Lord's people that would not forsake the Law of God to keep man's law.
Mordecai would not break the commandment of the Lord and bow down to worship
Haman as the laws of the land demanded.
Esther 3:2, "And all the
king's servants, that were in the king's gate, bowed, and reverenced
Haman: for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence."
And yes, again, we see
the Lord God prevented the death of His people once again. In fact, we see that
Haman himself was exterminated instead of the children of God! He wanted to
hang Mordecai upon the gallows he built. Instead, it was Haman himself who hung
on those gallows.
Esther 7:10, "So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he
had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified."
The devil keeps using
the same method of attack against God's people time after time throughout the
history of mankind for two simple reasons.
He hates the Law of God because
it proves we need a Saviour.
Secondly, his forceful methods
work well on the masses.
Every governing official
from day one will attest to the fact that it's far easier to get a large group
of people to follow your lead then it is to get one individual to do as you
suggest. In the past everyone but a few believers bowed to Satan's force with
ease. I ask, Is the Law of God about to be placed on the political chopping
block once again so as to force the children of the Lord into making a choice
between the Law of God and the laws of man?
The Word of God states
the Beast in Rome,."...shall
speak great words against the most High, ...and think to change times and
7:25 Besides the "Dios Domini" of
John Paul II seeking to echo such a blunt fulfillment of this prophecy. Is
there any other documented historic proof that the popes of Rome seek to do as the agents
of Satan have done so often in the past? Are they once again seeking to fashion
laws in direct opposition to the Law of God? Is the Roman Church seeking to
take over governments so as to ensure her agenda is met? Is the Roman church
speaking out against the Heavenly government of the Creator as well?

Under the influence of Germanic customs and concepts,
torture was little used from the 9th to the 12th centuries, but
with the revival of Roman law the practice was reestablished in the 12th
century... In 1252 (Pope) Innocent IV sanctioned the infliction of
torture by the civil authorities upon heretics, and torture came to have a
recognized place in the procedure of the inquisitional courts. -New
Catholic Encyclopedia, arts. "Inquisition", "Auto-da-Fe',"
and "Massacre of St Bartholomew's Day."
By the way, the word
torture was first heard and used in the Vatican. It's no mistake we see
the mention of torture being used in today's government as well. It's also no
mistake that John Paul II reinstated the office of Inquisition not too long
Pope John Paul II Revives Inquisition The thought of a
revived Holy Office of the
Inquisitionwould pacify some and offend others.
Nevertheless, the "Holy Office" still exists. Only it's name has been
changed. Pope John Paul II has been
instrumental in its revival. One may argue that this Ratzinger run agency is merely an
attempt by the Catholic Church to root out communism or backslidden priests and
their practices. However, with John
Paul II's objective to implement "God's mandate" by creating a global
church-state which will administer from traditional Roman Catholic theology,
is enough cause for alarm. Malachi Martin has already stated in his book,
"The Keys of this Blood," that
the pope will not tolerate any belief systems that oppose his, not on a
civil or church level. In John Paul II the
world will behold a tyrant who will coldly execute direct orders against those
whom he deems are heretics or immoral. Moreover, like his papal
predecessors, John Paul II will carry out his "Godly mandate" in the
name of Christ, or perhaps Mary. May God help us all. -By Kathleen R. Hayes Feb
1991, NRI Trumpet Page 3
And yes, the man named "Ratzinger" that was put in place by John Paul II to
run this office is none other then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who was later elected
as Pope Benedict XVI after John Paul II died.
As of today I placed the words "remove ten commandments" in
Google and found 48,000 articles and websites discussing the topic. Placing just
the words "ten commandments" in the search engine popped up 5,030,000 articles
and websites. Need I remind you of all the news reports concerning the Ten
Commandments and the US Congress these last few years? Yes, the Law of God is a
topic on many lips these days, and most of those lips are lawmakers.
Now that we understand
that we should, ".keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of
man." (Ecclesiastes 12:13) You may be wondering why it's so important that
we keep the Sabbath of the Lord? Besides the fact that breaking it is sin, biblical
fact is the importance of the Sabbath has to deal with who we will choose to
obey. The Lord commands that we worship Him on the seventh day which is of
course the Sabbath. The Devil under the authority of the men ruling the Roman
Catholic church says we should worship on Sunday.
"The Bible says, Remember
that thou keep holy the Sabbath day. The Catholic church says,No!By my divine power I abolish the Sabbath
and command you to keep the first day of the week. And lo, the entire civilized
world bows down in reverent obedience to the command of the holy Catholic
church!" Father Enright, C.S.S.R. of the RedemptoralCollege, Kansas City, History of the
Sabbath, p. 802
"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.
Again, I ask, Why is the
devil attacking the Sabbath? Why is the devil using
the men in the Roman Catholic church to make such a bold and obvious stance
against the Sabbath of the Lord thy God? Why are they making it such an issue
in the sermons, books, articles, tracts, websites, audios, and
videos? And why do you suppose they're doing it with so much more enthusiasm,
The Bible speaks of a
mark that will be enforced directly before the second coming of Jesus Christ.
The word "MARK" as it is expounded upon in the "American
Heritage Electronic Thesaurus" comes with numerous variations to the
word. For example, the words, "evidence,
sign, witness, symbol, indicator, stamp, token, signification, label, seal,
brand, and imprint" can all be used alternatively just as easy.
says, "And he
causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to
receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And
that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of
the beast, or the number of his name."
Why is this mark so important and what are the actual
features of a mark?
Have you ever signed a
document to validate or confirm that it is authentic? Have you ever given your
"seal of approval" on something? Have you ever "marked" an
item of yours as proof of ownership? In government, this is an undeniable fact
of life. As we know, signing a document actually authenticates that document.
Government declarations must always bear a mark, or an official seal of
approval on it for validity. But what are the actual features of an official
mark or seal made by governing bodies?
An official seal or signature must always have three
distinct features to be considered valid:
The name of the official
The title of the
The territory of the
When the President of
the United States signs a bill into law,
he must sign it, 1.Name "George Washington" 2.Title "President" 3.Territory "of the United States of
America" Collectively his signature would read.
Washington, President, of the United States"
Absolutely everydocument must be signed or sealed in this manner
for it to become an official legal document. Without it, it's a useless piece
Looking to the Creator we realize that He does in fact have a HeavenlyKingdom. And a Kingdom always
has a governing body. In this case, God Himself. The Almighty also has a legal
document containing His Law for that Kingdom. The Lord's legal document is His
Law. THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. Looking directly into the
midst of these Ten Commandments you' will find the Seal of the living God! Within
the fourth Commandment we find the words.
"For in six days the LORDmadeheaven and earth...." -Exodus 20:11
In that passage we see
all the necessary features of an official seal. Without these three features
the Law would be nothing more then words etched on stone. Again.
An official seal or signature must always have three
distinct features to be considered valid:
HIS NAME = THE LORD ("I am the Lord: that is my name"
HIS TITLE = CREATOR (Notice, "the LORD made" in
HIS TERRITORY = HEAVEN AND EARTH (Notice, "Heaven and
earth" in above verse)
Creator, of Heaven and Earth"
One can easily see that
the "seal" of the Creator God is actually found in the "Sabbath
commandment" of the Creator God. It is an acknowledgement of His authority
as the Creator as well as the Author of that Law written in stone. When we keep
His Sabbath we are expressing that we recognize, "remember" and
worship Him as our Creator. Psalm 77:11 says, "I will
remember the works of the
LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old." How should we remember
fourth commandment plainly says, "Remember
the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
And WHY do we remember Him on this
[in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and
all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD
blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it." Exodus 20:8,11
Even if you were unable
to step into a church on Sabbath you can keep that day holy. That alone makes a
clear statement of your aspiration to worship the Creator God without ever
having to speak a word. The act of worship alone can be seen far and wide. You
could literally be deaf, blind, and paralyzed from head to toe and still have
the ability to proclaim Christ Lord by keeping that day holy to the best of
your ability. When you do this, the Lord proclaims unto you that, ".it is
a sign between me and you
throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you." (Exodus 31:13) With
that said, it's easy to see why the devil would try to attack the Sabbath day. It's
the ultimate threat to his agenda and his dominion. The devil wants to be
worshipped and recognized as well as pronounced a god by as many as he can
tempt. When you do his will, you make him your god.
Romans 6:16, "Know ye not,
that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin
unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?"
When you obey, you give
worship. Is this not the age old controversy between Satan and Jesus? Is this
not the plot of this Holy War we find ourselves engaged in? Who you choose to
worship makes all the difference in this battle between Truth and lies. Satan
seeks your worship out of sheer arrogance. Did he not already say in his heart
that he wants to be like the most High?
The prophet Isaiah clearly
stated, "...O Lucifer...For thou hast
said in thine heart... I will be like the most High." -Isaiah 14:12,13,14
Seeing how God has
already SEALED the true Sabbath as His Sign, or "mark". The devil's
only recourse is to counterfeit his own sabbath as a sign and or mark of
dominion as a god. As we discovered earlier, the Lord declares unto all
creation that if you truly love Him you WILL keep His commandments. Keeping the
Sabbath day is proof unto all that you worship the Creator God.
Again, we see in Exodus
31:13 the Lord God telling us that, "Verily my
Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout
your generations."This verse allows us to
realize why the devil's been working so hard for so long at hiding the truth
about the Sabbath. It's God's sign! It's God's seal
of approval! It's God's mark of ownership! Some will say that this
is only for the Jews since it was only the Jews being spoken to in Exodus
31:13. Yet Old Testament prophecy and New Testament fulfillment reinforce that
if you claim Christ Lord you are Israel...
Genesis 49:10, "The
sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between
his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people
Hosea 2:23 And I will sow her unto me
in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained
mercy; and I will say to them
which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall
say, Thou art my God.
PROPHETIC STATEMENT REPEATED BY
speaking to Jews here)
Matthew 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation
bringing forth the fruits thereof.
Acts 13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed
bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have
been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves
unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we
turn to the Gentiles.
Romans 2:28,29 For he is not
a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is
outward in the flesh: But he
is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the
heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men,
but of God.
Romans 9:6-8 Not as though
the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they
are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy
seed be called. That is, They
which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God:
but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and
heirs according to the promise.
In short, if you are a follower
of Christ Jesus the Lord, YOU are now considered biblical Israel! The reason Satan has
twisted the truth on this is to get millions to believe in false prophecies
about the Jewish nation, a third temple, and a host of other strange prophetic
lies. Biblical fact remains, how can they be "God's people" when most of them openly
denied God's Son for the last 2000 years? The Scriptures are plain here. You
must embrace Jesus as Lord to be considered God's people. Praise the Lord, some
have done so and become Christians over the years.
So.. how does the beast
plan to get this mark in the forehead or in the hand of his followers? First of
all let's look at how the Lord seals His children so that we can better see
I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of
the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to
whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the
earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the
servants of our God in their foreheads." Revelation 7:2,3
Did you notice that it
says, the Almighty seals them in their foreheads? This is why Christians
never remember being stamped, sealed, or marked by God when they become
truly saved and begin to walk as He has written they will walk. When God
sealed us "in" the forehead it was not a mark ON the forehead like a tattoo,
and it certainly isn't a computer chip under the skin either because I don't
recall God doing that to me years ago. In fact, I was saved by the Lord over 20
years ago before the "computer age" was so plainly upon us. Simple truth is,
the forehead represents the mind here.
Isaiah 8:16, "Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my
2 Timothy 2:19,
"Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord
knoweth them that are his."
Hebrews 10:16 says, "This is the
covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I
will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;"
Scientific discovery has
recently revealed that the frontal lobe of the cerebrum, which in laymen's
terms is called the forehead, is where functions like decisions, judgments, and
free will are made. We are sealed by God when we make the free will decision
to accept Jesus as our Savior and His Word as Truth. This then causes our
lives to be affected by His doctrine, teachings, and most importantly, His
COMMANDMENTS. [Also see 2Cor 3:3 & Heb 8:10 & Heb 10:16]
Now let's look at how
the beast administers his mark.
he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to
receive a mark in their right
hand, or in their foreheads." Revelation 13:16
In this verse we now see
the mark of the beast is not only being received in the forehead, it's in the
hand as well. We already found the forehead represents the mind in prophecy. So
this means the people with the mark of the beast in the forehead have made a
free will decision thinking it was perfectly acceptable to replace God's Law
with man's traditions. But, what of those that receive it in the hand? Truth
is, much of mankind is not likely to "freely" go along with the beast's
plans. So, he has to rely on the use force instead. This is where the hand
comes into play.
Jeremiah 38:23, "... thou shalt not escape
out of their hand, but shalt betaken by the hand of the
king of Babylon: and thou shalt cause this
city to be burned with fire."
Ecclesiastes 9:10, "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do
it with thy might; for there is
no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave,
whither thou goest."
In prophecy the hand
represents being forced against our will as well as our ability to buy and
sell, or "work" as Ecclesiastes 9:10 put it. As we all know, Jesus will never
force Himself on us. He prefers we choose to worship Him of our own free will.
(decision made in the MIND) In the revolt of Heaven, two thirds of Heaven made
the right choice. However, one third made the sinful choice and fell along with
Satan. (see Revelation 12:4) Even our first Parents had to deal with choice.
Just as the forbidden fruit in Eden was a choice for them, the
forbidden mark of the beast is a choice for us. BOTH choices have a "life
or death" consequence, and both choices declare who we choose to obey.
Daniel and the three worthies had this choice as did Mordecai and Esther. This
is always the devil's main mode of attack. Why would he choose a different
method when all his past efforts worked so well? In fact, Satan used the Law
again when he used the Vatican to kill over 500
million Christians between 538ad and 1798ad. They
refused to break commandment #1 by bowing before the Eucharist set up by the Catholic church
as a "god" on earth worthy of worship.
The choice will soon be
placed before all living souls on earth. The beast will
seek to use force against those
that won't make the decision to worship him right off. This is why the hand is
mentioned here. Satan will use force against God's people by removing their
ability to work, as well as coerce them by other methods. In other words, let's
say you do refuse to go along and loose your job or business. It's not over
yet. Satan will then seek to force you to buy things in ways you might not
expect. One example could be, if your faith is weak in trusting Christ to feed
you during this time as He promised to do in Isaiah 33:16, Satan will dangle
food you have to purchase. He will place this before your eyes as "your only
way" when you're hungry. But in order to purchase the food you must go along
with the Roman mandate, thereby receiving the mark in the hand by doing so.
Luke 17:33, "Whosoever shall seek to save
his life shall lose it;
and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it."
Since we understand
making the decision to accept Jesus as Saviour, as well as accepting His
teachings which includes His Law, is the same as being sealed or marked in the
forehead by Jesus as one who is saved and or marked with a seal of approval by
the Creator. We must also understand, that accepting the doctrines, teachings,
or traditions of the Roman Catholic church that is directed by men who in turn
are directed by Satan, would mean we accepted the mark of the beast in the
Also understand there
will be those that aren't Catholic or even Christian. But they will do as the
beast commands for fear of death, or loss of their livelihood from not being
able to buy or sell anything unless he or she had the mark. Those that fear
loosing their ability to "buy & sell" will be bluntly making the decision
to accept the demands of the beast over and above the Commandments of the Lord.
These will be those who receive the mark in the right hand because they were
forced against their will. Their "forehead" wasn't marked because they did not
"decide" to agree of their own free will. They don't want to loose their
lively-hood in which the "buy and sell" global boycott will cause.
That will eventually force many to go along with the laws of the beast,
ESPECIALLY the rich who have never learned to trust the Lord in the first place.
(See Luke 18:25,26)
This is why society is
based on debt today. It allows for greater control and temptation on the
people. When the people are threatened with loosing their ability to keep up
their bills and loose their mortgages, cars, and other creature comforts bought
with credit, they will easily be forced to go along with Rome's mandate if they never
learned to trust Christ as Lord. The true Catholic or any other Christian that
accepts these unbiblical "doctrines of men" created in Rome will have received the
mark in the forehead because they already made the free will decision that
their church is correct in replacing Scriptures for "traditions
Summing it up... If you
receive the "mark" by choice, this means you've made the free will
decision that the "Traditions of man" are acceptable over Scripture.
Therefore you will be marked in the forehead. If you're forced to
receive the mark by not being able to buy or sell, or any other means of force
that go against your free will, it will be that you're one that is marked "in the right hand."
When it comes to the
mark of the beast; without realizing, the Catholic Church makes both a
prophetic and blasphemous boast as well as an undeniable LINK by the following documented
"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.
The reason they claim
they are "above the Bible" is because they look upon the Protestant churches
that claim to follow the Bible "only," yet they are keeping Sunday as sabbath
which is actually a law written only in Catholic dogma. The Sunday sabbath is
not found anywhere in the bible of the Protestant. Hence, the Catholic Church
naturally believes they are above the Bible because all churches do as she commands
over and above what their own bibles command.
"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
"It was the
Catholic church by the authority of Jesus Christ, which has transferred this
rest to Sunday in remembrance of the resurrection of our Lord. Therefore
the observance of Sunday by the
Protestants isan homage they pay, in spite of themselves, to
the authority of the Catholic church." - Mgr, Segur Plain Talk
about Protestantism of today page 213
Which is the Sabbath day? Answer -Saturday is the
Sabbath day. Question - Why do we observe Sunday
instead of Saturday? Answer - We observe Sunday instead of Saturday
because the Catholic Church, in
the Council of Laodicea (A.D. 364), transferred the solemnity from Saturday
to Sunday." The Convert's Catechism of Catholic
Doctrine, p. 50, 3rd ed.
Numbers 23:20 states, "Behold, I have
received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it."
Did you notice how this
verse easily proves that NO ONE can change or transfer anything the Almighty
makes holy. It is sheer demonic arrogance of mankind to think they can actually
make anything holy! Let alone REMOVE holiness from that which the Creator has
blessed. Still.. Rome continues to boast.
"Sunday is a Catholic institution and
its claim to observance can be defended only on Catholic principles .... From
beginning to end of Scripture there is not a single passage that
warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last day of the week to
the first." (Catholic Press, Sydney, Australia, August, 1900.)
Almighty says in the Old Testament...
Exodus 20:8-11, "Remember
the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all
thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it
thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy
manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is
within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea,
and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the
LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it."
also says in the New Testament...
Hebrews 4:4,8,9 "For he
spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God
did rest the seventh day from all his works. For if Jesus had given
them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God."
the word "REST" that is used here in verse 9...
1) a keeping sabbath
2) the blessed rest from toils and troubles looked for in the age to come by
the true worshippers of God and true Christians
Both the Old and New Testament
affirm that the Seventh Day Sabbath is still valid today for those that claim
the Lord is their Saviour. So, if the prophecy is correct in saying that Sunday
keeping is acceptance of the authoritative MARK OF THE BEAST. And the
Scriptures verify that God says... "my Sabbaths ye
shall keep: for it is a sign
between me and you throughout your
generations" [Exodus 31:18] I challenge everyone to keep their eyes open
and watch as God's final prophecies come to be! The Creator God is no dime
store psychic! It's going
We now have ample Scriptural
facts the Sabbath is God's sign, seal, and mark. And Sunday is the "sign,
seal, or mark of the beast. So, what's next you ask?
The devil will need to
get people to worship as he stipulates so he can enforce his mark of authority.
Do you suppose the beast, under the camouflage of the Roman Catholic church
will be able to make good on his plans? Do you suppose the church is busy
making sure it's views are made into law. Was the statement of John Paul II in
1998 a fluke concerning civil legislation to make Sunday keeping into law? Or
has this been the prophecied agenda of Rome all along?
"This organization proposes in every
possible way to aid in preserving Sunday as a civil
institution. Our national security requires the active support of all good
citizens in the maintenance of our American Sabbath. Sunday
laws must be enforced." Quoted-
"principles contained in the Constitution" (then called the American
Sabbath Union), The Lord's Day Alliance, Twenty fifth Report
"In the fourth and fifth centuries, Sunday shows and Sunday theaters, it
was complained, hindered the "devotion of the faithful," because many
of the members attended them in preference to the church services. The church,
therefore, demanded that the state interfere, and promoteSunday observance by law. "In this way, " Says Neander
"the church received help from the state for the furtherance of her
ends." This union of church and state served to establish the Papacy in
power. A similar course pursued now will produce the same results."
-AUGUSTUS NEANDER, General History of the Christian Religion and the Church,
Torey translation (3rd American ed.), vol. 2, pp. 300,301
The Catholic church has
been attempting to persuade the U.S. Government for many years to make into law
the observance of the first day of the week as their Sabbath. Still, is this really
something that can become Law of the Land? Strange truth is, many Americans are
unaware of this but, religious Sunday Laws, or "blue laws" as they are called,
have been in effect for quite some time now.
In the U.S., Sunday is not only a
religious holiday but is also the only common-law holiday -"Holiday," Microsoft (R) Encarta. Copyright (c) 1994 Funk &

In 1962 the United States of
America did just that under the administration of its FIRST
Roman Catholic President, John F. Kennedy. They made strict observation of Sunday
into LAW! All government agencies are officially CLOSED on
Sundays. Many secular business's followed suit soon after as a show of devoted compliance.
This also happens to be the year Roman Catholic President John F. Kennedy
outlawed prayer in schools. The leaders of the Catholic church under the
direction of the devil have played their part to a "T". The frustrating
thing is, the devil has had one advantage over us mortal beings. He has had the
advantage of ancient history on his side. Simple fact is, the beast has been
able to make his inventions in the Catholic church look sacred simply because
they were enacted long before any of us were born. And as is always the case,
many feel that the older the tradition the more accepted they must be as holy.
Rather cunning lie isn't it? This is why it is so important to stay in the
Bible daily. Lies like these are transparent to the child of God.
Back in the 60's when
John F Kennedy quickened the "Blue Laws" that enacted certain
stipulations regarding the activities allowed on SUNDAYS in the USA, something else was
afoot that many are unaware of.
"Some have suffered torturebecause they
would not rest when others kept Sunday, for they declared it to be the
holiday and law of Antichrist."
- Sebastian Frank, AD 1536.
since 1888, there has been a
continual push (in the USA) for Sunday to be the official day of rest.

They allowed this
"Sunday Law" to be upheld because they surprisingly figured since most
Christian religions are already embracing "Sunday" as their Sabbath,
it would not be favoring any one particular faith if passed. The loophole here
was the majority vote. They boldly ignored the first amendment by appealing to
the "duty" of the Christian to do the right thing. They were hoodwinked by
Satan like a blind man on the edge of a ditch. So, it was allowed. Now you see why
the prophecy declared that all the world will wonder after the beast in
Revelation 13:3? Without the ecumenical charge of Rome, this Sunday law would
never have been upheld back then! The Antichrist had to get everyone in
agreement regarding Sunday even back then so that when this was lobbied in Washington, it would be considered
trivial as well as "universally accepted," thereby making it a shoe
in the door for Rome. They knew they had no
plans to "enforce" it on the people back then. But they knew they would need it
in the future.
Revelation 13:14-15, "And 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. And he had power to give life unto the image
of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the
image of the beast should be killed."
SPEAK = LEGISLATION and CAUSE = ENFORCEMENT
The passing of the
Sunday Law in 1962 is a herald unto all the World that the lamb horned beast of
Revelation (USA) is indeed capable of
doing exactly as prophecy declared it could do. Keep in mind, the law was
passed in 1962, but has it ever been enforced on man? With the exception of
government workers, no it hasn't. It has merely been a preamble of things to
come. Or the proverbial, "ace up their sleeve," when that day comes. Big
government always likes to plan way in advance so as to prevent problems when
they tighten the noose. It will make the final blow that much easier when the
Is the Vatican now asking for SUNDAY
LAWS from our Government TO BE ENFORCED? Is the pope looking to
SPEAK laws into place so that it can ENFORCE that which is passed? Is the Roman
Catholic Vatican looking to make the United States of
America a carbon copy of itself? Is the lamb horned
beast of Revelation, the USA about to enforce
religious observance? Is the USA going to become an
IMAGE OF THE BEAST and become a church and state conglomerate just like the Vatican? Will the United States government follow Rome's lead and create a
church and state mixture of government?
Truth is, on March 7th 2006 the Bush
administration put into law a brand new executive order (# 13397)
that REMOVES the separation of church and state and forces all churches (with
501C3 status) to become government agencies. Thing is,
ALL church denominations, with the exception of a few small "wise" churches,
have already agreed to the 501C3 status and have officially become an exact
image of the Beast in Rome. For those that are unaware. In order to get that
501C3 status, you must incorporate your church with the state. After
doing so, like the Roman Catholic church and Vatican state
entity, you too become a church and state organization. Or an "image" of the
Roman church. The prophecy is literally fulfilled by your church! Strangely
enough, this came almost exactly one year after Pope John Paul II made the
As we learned earlier, Pope
John Paul II stated that "Christians will naturally strive to ensure that "civil
legislation" respects their duty to keep
Sunday holy." (-Section 67, "Dies Domini", July 7, 1998)
The Ten Commandments are
the actual laws of the Creator God that declares in 1 John 2:4, "He that
saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him." That is in
essence saying, How can you claim to be A CHRISTIAN if you don't keep the Law
of a Christian God? How? That's exactly what that passage says! You are a liar
if you say to the World that you are a Christian, and then bow down in front of
a statue to pray a rosary. You are a liar if you say to the World that you are
a Christian, and then break the Seventh Day Sabbath of the Lord Jesus Christ
who is in fact LORD OF THE SABBATH according to Matthew 12:8. As we already
discovered, the basic fact is, the Law of God POINTS OUT SIN to you. That's why
the Devil does not want you to keep it. If he can keep you from the Law of God,
he can sufficiently prevent you from finding out that you are in sin. In other
words, the devil knows that in order to get the mark of the beast upon you, he
has to convince you NOT to keep God's Law. Would you like to see a rather
amazing connection between the Law of God and the Mark of the Beast in the book
of Revelation? In order to see it, you need to answer four simple questions...

occurred? It is illustrating in verses 9, 10, & 11 the just deserts of
those that receive the mark of the beast. Then in verse 12 it describes the
general makeup of saints in the last days when the Mark of the Beast is being
enforced. It declares them as those that KEEP THE TEN COMMANDMENTS AND HAVE THE
FAITH OF JESUS. Do you hear what that's saying? It's saying, if you keep the
Ten Commandments, and have the faith of Jesus, in the last days that are most
assuredly "after the cross of Christ," then you will NOT receive the mark of
the Beast. It's that simple. In other words.
CHRISTIANS THAT KEEP THE
LAW OF GOD WILL NOT RECEIVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST!
Let me explain further
on this simple fact...
The ministry website at RemnantofGod.org is literally drenched
with many articles, Catholic doctrines, Vatican announcements, and historic
events that prove beyond all doubt the Roman Catholic church has declared war
on the Ten Commandments as well as the faith in Jesus. They even used the US
Government to attack the Ten Commandments as we saw just a few short years ago.
Fact is, Revelation 14:12 is supplying two major conditions for not
receiving the Mark of the Beast isn't it? It is speaking of those that keep His
commandments and have faith in Jesus as SAINTS?
Also notice this
Revelation 22:14, "Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of
life, and may enter in through the gates into the city."
That city is New
Jerusalem! HEAVEN. If the Ten Commandments were invalid, then why is it only
those that keep the Ten Commandments are those that are entering the city? Why
is it only those that keep the Law AND have faith in Jesus are not receiving
the mark of the beast? How can this be an abolished Law? How can this be a distinctly
Jewish Law? The ones entering the city are the ones with faith in Jesus.
If the Law is outdated, why are Christians entering Heaven on that day? If it's
only Jewish, why does it say those that have faith in Jesus and keep the Law aren't
receiving the mark of the beast?
Ok.. we now know the
mark of the beast is. So, how will they be able to enforce it? It has to do
with the National ID Cards that are slated to start arriving in some U.S.
States as early as May of 2008. The Bush administration has placed a January
2010 deadline on all states to be up and "interconnected" by that date. Judging
by the opposition, and the Governments desire to do it anyway at all costs,
that date may change as well. (Click here For more information
on this ID Card) Am I setting a date for the end of the World? No, I am not.
Who knows how long the governments will play with this card once it becomes
mandatory. Months? Years? Decades? No one knows for sure except the Father in
Heaven. Why are the ID cards needed? The ID cards will contain everything about
you as an individual within them. Your home address, resume, educational
background, health history, past and present employment, your travel plans,
passport info, SS#, DL#, birthdates and criminal record. It will eventually
replace all your credit cards as well as the use of cash. They will use the public
relations sales pitch of "convenience" to get the masses to comply of course.
Some believe this card is the mark itself. Truth is, it is not, however it will
be used to enforce the mark.
One day, you will walk
into a local market to buy groceries, step into a doctor's office for a
checkup, or attempt to use your ID card to pay a bill online. The Roman mandate
will have been passed and all people around the world will be asked the
question, "Do you keep Sunday holy as mandated by Rome?" If you "agree" (which
entails receiving the mark in the forehead) you will be allowed to make your
purchase without delay. If you disagree, the clerk will immediately check the
box "NO" on the screen. Instantly across the globe YOU will be broadcast as a troubler
seeking to defy the law of the land. In today's world if the government wants
to freeze your bank accounts and credit cards it can take up to 72 hours to
shut you down. With the global ID card it will be done instantly from
any location worldwide. PLUS, the moment you are placed in the system as a
person rejecting the Roman mandate, computers in all the police cars within
your present area will ring out a tone to alert them where you are standing at
that exact moment. You are now considered an enemy of the state and worthy of
immediate imprisonment. If they do imprison you they will proceed to "convince"
you that it's the wise thing to do. They will use your friends, relatives, and
fellow church members to try and convince you as well. How will they be able to
do all that? ALL your personal info was in that card! They know all they need
to know to work their "magic" upon you. Without Christ, you will be a sitting
duck! It is then you will understand clearly the words found in Matthew chapter
Matthew 10:34-37, "Think not that I am come
to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.For I am come to set a man at variance
against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter
in law against her mother in law.And a man's foes shall be
they of his own household.He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me:
and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me."
We have the technology
now to allow the powers that be to do such a thing with the ease unimaginable.
But before they can hope to get it to be enforced on a global basis they need
to generate a majority of agreement among all nations. That way, when they
decide to "drop the other shoe" they have been building up to and enact
enforcement, the other nations will be forced to comply out of sheer numbers
against them. Is there a push in the global media to get the nations to go
along with such laws?

This act would allow employers to pay the normal rate of pay to employees who
work on Sundaysas part of their normal forty

Please understand that this House
Bill has been re-written so many times and the "number" changed so
often that it has become necessary to investigate this further. It
is obvious they seek to keep this in "hiding" for as long
as possible. So they shuffle the location of the bill as well as
change its wording and number often. Below are a series of URL's
that did in fact contain the newly formed data on Bill 98H8949 as

Now it is recorded on http://www.rifda.com/legislative.html
that BILL # S. 0490-An Act Relating to Holidays and Days of Special Observance-Work

allow employers to pay the normal rate of pay to employees who work on Sundays
as part of their usual 40-hour work week.It was also confirmed thatChapter 409, became effective July 21. It eliminates the requirement for
any business to obtain work permits on Sundays and holidays in order to operate.
(This new law cannot override any collective bargaining agreement currently in
effect.) However, as I stated earlier, if you read the newly worded Bill you
will find the same agenda which included penalties and fines still

A BILL to be introduced
in the Morobe Tutumang soon to enforce Sunday as a day of worship for all in
the province. The proposed Bill expected to draw debate because it seeks to ban
all activities - social and economin on Sunday. The law will carry penalty
provisions for operators and agencies caught voilating it. Mr Wenge said
yesterday the move was radical one but one that was based on Christian
principals and values. The Bill is being drafted for tabling in the provincial
assembly in its first session next year [Post Courier NewsPaper Oct. 6, 1998

THEY WILL BE DEPRIVED OF THE RIGHT TO BUY OR SELL
The following article is a quote from a Nazarene magazine
called Newswatch. In its 1994 November/December issue, 4-5, it read, "The
French magazine, Foy et Rai, reported from the United Nations Organization in
Geneva, Switzerland, that plans are worked out to dissolve the UNO to make way
for a World Tribunal. . . . This project and this plan provides for a total unification
of church and state, and also provides for a single form of worship. The appointed
day for all people will be Sunday. The number received by the people
will promise the right to buy or sell.
"At the end of this statement, a Christian rose and asked the speaker,
'What happens to the minorities who will not accept this plan?' The Christian
was told, 'Their number will be canceled with a black line and they will be
deprived of the right to buy or sell and will thus be forced to destruction.'

these last days in regards to the Truth shared here.
IT'S HAPPENING PEOPLE!!! RIGHT
NOW! When this law goes
into effect nationwide, you will understand what Revelation 13:15 speaks
of. The Image of the Beast will have been given the prophetic life it needs to
be enforced! The United States of America will become a duplicate image of the
Vatican in Rome! It will be a Church and State conglomerate, just like the
Vatican is the Government of Rome as well as the Roman Catholic church. It will
have the Authority of the Law of the Land it requires to be quickened, and it
will then be implemented as once before in the year 1610 upon all citizens. All
that is needed now is the prophetic "disaster" whether it be
"Financial, Natural, or Social" makes no difference. All that the
Beast needs is this disaster to occur. He awaits this so that he can proclaim
that "We all need to get right with God to prevent further disasters,
we MUST keep His "Sunday" Sabbath or die!" Then we will see
what they saw in the year 1610 once again! You will see what Daniel and his
friends saw. Will you choose to live? Or will you die?
"Every man and woman shall repair in the morning to the divine service and
sermons preached upon the Sabbath (Sunday), and in the
afternoon to divine service, and catechizing, upon pain for the first

third to suffer death.!" -Laws, and Orders, Divine, Politique, & Martial For

they preach is Truth! All those that will hear and believe WILL, and then the
plagues of Revelation will fall, Jesus Christ will return for all those that
decided to "Obey God rather than man", [Acts 5:29] And the great and
dreadful day of the Lord will become reality! "So speak ye, and so do,
as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty."

EVIDENCE FOR THOSE THAT HAVE EYES TO SEE IT...
Thus he said, The
fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse
from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down,
and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom [are] ten kings [that]
shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the
first, and he shall subdue three kings. 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." Daniel 7:23-25
When Pagan Rome fell it resulted in the formation of TEN KINGDOMS. Three of
these ten kingdoms rejected the "Catholic faith" and the idea of a
church and state conglomerate and they were therefore annihilated for it.
1. Heruli (493AD) was
annihilated. 2. Vandals (534AD) were annihilated. 3. Ostrogoths
(538AD) were the final of the THREE KINGS THAT WOULD BE SUBDUED as Daniel put
it. With the fall of the Ostrogoths in the year 538AD the Roman Catholic
institution saw there "official" beginning as the FOURTH BEAST
mentioned in the prophecy of Daniel and verified in Revelation 17:3 as a woman
(church) and beast (nation) combined.
Catholic emperors of the eastern empire found ways to
help the pope by eliminating three of the Arian tribes. (These
"Arian type" nations would not agree with the popes plans) The
Catholic emperor Zeno (474-491) arranged a treaty with the Ostrogoths in 487
which resulted in the eradication of the kingdom of the Arian Heruls in 492.
And the catholic emperor Justinian (527-565) exterminated the Arian Vandals in
534 and signifcally broke the power of the Arian Ostrogoths in 538. Thus
were Daniels three horns - The Heruls, the Vandals, and the Ostrogoths -
"plucked up by the roots." -C. Mervyn Maxwell, God Cares Vol.
1, p. 129
AD 538, the year when the Ostrogoths collapsed. It was out of the smoking ruins
of the western Roman Empire and after the overthrow of the three Arian kingdoms
that the pope of Rome emerged as the most important single individual in the
West, the head of a closely organized church with a carefully defined creed and
with vast potential for political influence. Dozens of writers have pointed out
that the real survivor of the ancient Roman Empire was the Church of Rome.

the military protection of Belisarius." History of the Christian
Church, Vol. 3, p. 327
Who is Vigilius you
As the ten kingdoms of Rome were falling apart, there was an emperor Justinian
who was worried about his crumbling empire. He has a General Bellsarius under
his thumb who he devises a plan with during the wars that resulted in the
unrest of Rome's fall. They decided that if they can get into the city of Rome
they will banish the bishop of Rome so as to allow for a takeover that would
allow the new system of "ROMAN Catholicism" to be set up. They needed
this system because they felt they had no more political power to control the
people. So they devised a plan that would give them Religious as well as
political strength. One fateful day while Bellsarius is fighting, the bishop of
Rome proclaims that he will not allow any fighting within his city. This Bishop
loves his people and proceeds to close the gates and refuses to have anything
to do with the war just outside the city. The fighting on this day is
particularly strenuous however. The Goths had pushed back Bellsarius and his
fighters all the way to the walls of what was left of the city of Rome. It
looked hopeless, it looked as if Bellsarius was going to be wiped out
completely. So, Bellsarius scurried off a note to his superior Justinian,
saying, "save us!" Justinian's wife is a Christian who happens to be
a friend of the bishop of Rome. Justinian pleads with his wife to ask the
bishop of Rome to open the gates of the city so that Bellsarius and his men can
enter inside so as not to be wiped out by the Goth's. Out of respect for her
bishop, Salverius of Rome opens the gates of the city to allow Bellsarius and
his army into the city to spare their lives. Justinian and Bellsarius however
had already agreed that once inside the city they would banish the bishop of
Rome. So once inside they did indeed follow through on their plans. They
banished the bishop and put their own man Vigilius who was not a Christian
on the seat of bishop and proclaimed him Pope that very day. And there you have
it, just as this prophecy of Revelation 13:4 predicted. In the year 538 AD the
official beginning of the Roman Catholic church and state conglomeration
prophetically began. -(Generalized Information taken from Hope Beyond 2000

government in the destruction of many churches, and the
liquidation of more than 1,000 documented cases -- some
of whom were shot, drowned, or emasculated. He says there is

BEAST WILL ATTACK FOR... "a time and times and the dividing of time"
Revelation 13:5 speaks of
this time as forty two months. "...and power was given unto him to
continue forty and two months" Forty
two months and a "time, and time and dividing a time" equal the same
thing. 42 months = "3 1/2 years" A "time (one year)
and times (+ two years) and the dividing of time, (+ half a year ) = three and
a half years, or forty two months (12+24 + 6 = 42 months)
To understand the forty and two months that the beast will reign, we must first
find the method of time the Bible declares for prophecy. God says in Ezekiel
4:6 "I have appointed thee each day for a year"
And we also find the Bible acknowledges a month to be 30 days long.
Because in, Genesis 7:11 we see the rain started on the 17 day of the
2nd month and in Genesis 8:3,4 we find the water receded at the end of
150 days, then it says the ark rested on the 17th day of the 7th month.
That's exactly 5 months. If we divide the 150 days by the 5
months you get 30 days per month. So 42 months multiplied by 30 equals 1260.
According to Ezekiel 4:6, that's 1260 years that Papal Rome would reign.
The papacy began its reign in 538AD upon Emperor Justinian's decree and under
the military protection of Belisarius. And the Bible says the beast
will rule for 1260 years. If you add 538 to 1260 you will arrive in
the year 1798AD According to the Bible we are told the reign will last till the
year 1798 . So, did it end in 1798, and how? "He that leadeth into captivity shall go into
captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be
killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the
saints." Revelation 13:10.
Here we see that the beast would be destroyed with the sword (sword = military)
at the end of its reign. Did this happen to Papal Rome in 1798...? Is it
possible the Bible can be so accurate as to actually give us the exat YEAR this
even will occur? YES IT IS! On February 10th Napoleon
Bonaparte in that EXACT year A.D. 1798 sent his General Louis
Alexandre Berthier, with his army into Rome, Italy.
Encyclopedia Britannica 1941 edition states: "In 1798 General
Berthier made his entrance into Rome, abolished
the papal government, and established a secular one."
Exactly 42 prophetic months, or 1260 years after the
Papacy began its powerful reign, the Pope "shall go into
captivity" by the military! Shortly after his captivity the
Pope died, in exile.
"The letters inscribed in the Pope's miter are these 'VICARIUS
FILII DEI'. which is the Latin for 'VICAR OF THE SON OF GOD.' Catholics
hold that the church, which is a visible society, must have a visible head....,
as head of the church, was given the title, 'VICAR OF CHRIST'."
Our Sunday Visitor, (Catholic Weekly) "Bureau of
information," Huntington, Ind., April 18, 1915. (See actual facsimilie
of this quote here... CLICK HERE )
Since this evidence came forth regarding the
title, "Vicarius Filii Dei" and it's obvious connection to the
666 calculation of Revelation. The Roman Church has opted to "teach"
it's followers to declare this title "bogus." They have gone to great
lengths seeking to do just that so as to remove the overwhelming evidence
against them. However, this ministry as well as many others have found
additional documented facts regarding this title.
Vicarius Filii Dei,
is cited by the rector of Berlin, Andreas Helwig [or Helwich] (1572-1643) in
his Antichristus Romanus. PLUS, if you would like many more documented facts as
well as copies of Roman Catholic publications with "Vicarius Filii
Dei" displayed within them, see this page... http://www.aloha.net/~mikesch/666.htm
You also might want to take
a look at the actual facsimilie of the NOV 15, 1914 edition of OUR SUNDAY

as well as state THE NAME IS INSCRIBED ON THE POPES MITRE! you can view it
I also placed it on my server for safe keeping as well here.(click here) Not only does that publication
show the title, "Vicarius Filii Dei, it also explains that it IS
considered a valid title as they do not refute that. Instead they attempt to
epxlain why it's a trivial matter that it equals 666.
here to view page 343 of an actual Vatican document (in Latin) "Deusdedit cardinalis ... collectio canonum, ed. a P. Martinucci"
where they use the term VICARIUS FILII DEI! For decades they
have lied about this title after the truth about 666 came out!

One more note of interest!
Why is it I ask, when you go to the archives of "Our Sunday

difficult to get a copy of page THREE of the Nov 15, 1914 "Our Sunday
It's obvious as you will

used this for their alphabet and their number system)
"I have recently received
what seems to be reliable information that a photo may exist of a papal funeral
in St. Peter's Basilica near the beginning of the 20th century, in which the
tiara inscribed with Vicarius Filii Dei can be seen. Combined with the above
claims of Our Sunday Visitor, this would indicate that it was the funeral of
either Leo XIII (1878-1903), or Pius X (1903-1914), and that previous popes
probably wore the tiara in question. If anyone can turn up this photo and make
it available to me, I will post it in this article."
Eyewitness testimony claims
that Pope Gregory XVI (1831-1846) wore the inscribed tiara during the Easter
Mass of 1845, and that the word Vicarius was on the top crown, Filii
on the middle, and Dei on the lower crown, the words spelled out with
jewels. See... The Number of his Name.
Another note of interest is, "Vicarius
Filii Dei" is NOT the only title of the Popes that = 666.

Then also Lateinos has the number six hundred and sixty-six; and it is a very

"The number of his
name... count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man... and his number is 666." Revelation 13:17,18
Absolutely every single
great and small prophecy that has ever been uttered regarding ANTICHRIST has
been fulfilled in complete accuracy by all the Popes of the
ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH over the course of it's VERY documented history! Not only
did this church fulfill each and every one of these prophecies, it also did so
IN THE EXACT YEARS the Bible declared for fulfillment! And then we have seen
this beast attack the Bible and it's readers so as to hide the TRUTH that is
revealed within the prophetic and 100% accurate Word of God.
Keep in mind people, the
Bible also states that the wound administered to this beast in the exact
prophetic year of 1798ad by Napoleon's General, WILL be HEALED in the very last
days! (see Revelation 13:12)
Revelation 13:12, "And
he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the
earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly
wound was healed."
THIS IS EASILY SEEN AS
TODAY PEOPLE! The Roman Catholic Church is back in power just as before! HEED
THE WARNING WHILE YOU STILL CAN! "...Come out of her, my people, that
ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."
states one more undeniable fact here...
Revelation 13:3, "And
I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was
healed: and all the world wondered after the beast."
Prophecy tell us that not
long after the Beast is wounded and then healed, prophecy declares that, "all
the world wondered after the beast."
Pope Becomes Ruler Of A State Again
Rome, June 7.--From 11 o' clock this morning there was
another sovereign independent State in the world. At that time Premier
Mussolini, as Italian Foreign Minister representing King Victor Emmanuel--the
first Italian Premier ever to cross the threshold of the Vatican--exchanged
with Cardinal Gasparri, Papal Secretary of State, representing Pope Pius XI,
ratifications of the treaties signed at the Lateran Palace on Feb. 11.By that simple act the sovereign
independent State of Vatican City came into existence. -New York Times July 7,
and Gaspari(Cardinal) Sign Historic Pact.....Healing Wound of Many Years."-The San Francisco Chronicle 7-7-1929
A few more undeniable facts
are, that many theologians of the Catholic persuasion have tried to thwart this
Biblical fact. They have attempted to do so by stating that Nero was Antichrist
because his name added up to 666. However, in order to make his name = 666 they
had to spell his name "NERON" in Hebrew. Fact is, that is simply not
the man's name. Plus, they seem to disregard the fact that Nero was neither a
Hebrew, nor did he speak their language. So, they are exposed as one seeking to
hide the Truth with a lie. Plus, the Catholic church has also started a recent
attack on Ellen White, who is a major leader in a church that has the gift of
prophecy and is VERY effective in exposing the Catholic church's true Prophetic
agenda. They attempt to de-fame her by declaring that her name = 666 as well.
And again, they had to alter the spelling of her name to make this so lie work.
How? They spell her name, Ellen Gould VV hite. Notice the "W" there
in her name? It is not a "W" at all. It is 2 capital letter
"V's." They placed two V's side by side to make a "W" so as
to add "10" to the value of her name, thus causing her name to = 666.
Truth is, whenever true Christians find a letter that has NO VALUE in a name we
believe to be a name pointing to Antichrist, we actually place a "0"
as that value. We need not lie to make a point. Truth is amply sufficient in
exposing the devil. Besides, if in fact NERON, or Ellen Gould VV hite as the
Catholic church calls them did = 666, wouldn't they also have to fulfill the
other prophecies of Antichrist? Is the Catholic church declaring our God to be
a God of disorder? Would our Heavenly Father preach that "some" of
the prophecies of Antichrist will be fulfilled in this church, or this man or
this woman, and then some will be fulfilled in another, and then more will be
fulfilled yet another? Or is our Heavenly Father speaking of ONE Antichristian
organization that will do ALL, 100% that He says Antichrist would do? To say
that "NOT ALL" prophecies will be fulfilled by Antichrist in
ONE entity, is to call the Creator God a liar as well as a God of CoNfUsIoN.
And that is NOT Biblical. For it is written in 1 Corinthians 14:33,
"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all
churches of the saints." The Almighty has blessed us in His Word
with numerous clues and identifying features of Antichrist. The Catholic church
is merely trying to CoNfUsE the Truth with lies so as to pull the onus away
from her. That's all they can do because Truth cannot be refuted. When Truth is
spoken, it will only result in two actions by those that hear it.
1. They will accept it
and be blessed. And go forth proclaiming it.
2. They will reject it
and be cursed. And go forth denying it.
In other words, if
someone's name = 666. Before one goes shouting ANTICHRIST, they better make
sure ALL the prophecies line up. False prophets are actually THAT EASY to
One more thing...
"Six is legitimate when it leads to seven; it
represents man on the first evening of his existence entering into the
celebration of God's creative power. The glory of the creature is right if it
leads to the glory of God. Six hundred sixty-six, however, represents the
refusal of man to proceed to seven, to give glory to God as Creator and
Redeemer. It represents man's fixation with himself, man seeking glory in
himself and his own creations. It speaks of the fullness of creation and all
creative powers without God- the practice of the absence of God. It
demonstrates that unregenerate man is persistently evil. The beasts of Rev 13
represent man exercising his sovereignty apart from God, man conformed to the
image of the beast rather than to the image of God. Man apart from god becomes
bestial, demonic. The mark of the beast, then, is a rejection of the
sovereignty of God- the Sabbath principle which is designed to encourage man to
seek his dignity not in himself or in nature, but in communion with God and par-
ticipation in God's rest. It is the Sabbath which distinguishes between the
creature and the Creator, which reveals who deserves worship and who does not.
It is the Sabbath which demonstrates God's sovereignty and man's dependence.
Six hundred sixty-six by contrast is the symbol of the worship of the creature
rather than the Creator." -Neall, Character in the Apocalpse, pp.
C. Mervyn Mawell's comments on the above quotation in his book, "God Cares
Vol. 1 p 415-416 are as follows.
"Viewed in the light of interpretation, coercive
Sunday observance, defiantly linked with a determination to worship God in
our own way in spite of Christ's end-time ministry on our behalf in the
heavenly sanctuary and of the Ten Commandments which are located beside Him, constitutes
the mark of the beast." -Emphasis his own
already have documented evidence that the Vatican is planning on rewriting the
Bible as is stated in the following document. I also need proof that these "16
Laws" designed to ENFORCE THE MARK OF THE BEAST are authentic.

ARGUS-IS plane has real-time 1.8 gigapixel resolution I
posted this video from a different source a year or
so back. But I feel it bears repeating in that it shows
how easily the powers that be can track each and every
human on the face of the earth at any given time. Worse
yet, they can even track you hours, days, weeks, months
or even years AFTER you left the area! Still think the
mark of the beast cannot be enforced in our day?
