Back in 1981 the Pope was noticed and exposed for attacking our constitution when the media wasn’t so tightly controlled by Rome. It was stated in Time magazine back in June of 1981 that,
“John Paul was criticized by liberal and moderate politicians and newspapers for transgressing the boundary between church and state.” TIME June 1, 1981 article “Not Yet Hale, but Hearty” By George Russell
Did that slow this pope down? Not at all! 10 years later it was reported in that same magazine that,
“In sermons based on the Ten Commandments, John Paul denounced excessive materialism, divorce, contraception and the separation of church and state, TIME June 17, 1991 “The Gift Of Life” p. 47 Sermons from A Native Son
What most missed was, the month before that, the Pope insisted the new constitution be ratified in the European Union (EU) must allow for Vatican control over all religious entities so as to prevent further unrest. It’s amazing how soon mankind forgets all the unrest Catholicism actually fostered when they killed hundreds of millions of Christians. – In regards to his comments about the EU constitution, Time magazine said…
“Recent statements by the Polish Episcopate have fueled apprehension. In late April the bishops urged that the new constitution exclude any provision for the separation of church and state. Instead, they suggested, “exceptional emphasis should be laid on the need for cooperation between the state and the Catholic Church.” TIME May 20, 1991 “Five Who Could Be Vice President” Pg 40 “Power to The Pulpit”
Then directly after John Paul II died, Joseph Ratzinger, under the alias of Benedict 16 stated,
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.)
“Social disorder, war, injustice and violence” can only be countered “ by renewed appreciation and respect for the universal moral law [Sunday observance], that only byrecognizing that law can the world have “dignity, life and freedom” with “conditions of justice and peace” in all the communities of the world, and that the promotion and defense of this law is what “must govern relations between nations and peoples in the pursuit of the common good of the human family…within the international community.”(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.)
Now keep in mind, research has proven that all the wars are the direct result of people refusing to bow in worship to the Popes. Yet this pope uses those very same wars his predecessors started to demand Sunday Sabbath as a way to stop them.
Now… one thing that is very obvious is that the pope knows, we the remnant people exist. He also knows we cannot, and will not bow to his false god even on pain of death. Will he use that against us? Yes, prophecy confirms this as we all know. But does he actually make statements today that reflect that prophetic fact? Can fulfillment be that easy to see at times? Yes it is. In 2008 at a United Nations meeting he said…
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.)
We, brothers and sisters, are the “little groups of independent people that threaten the unity of the world” according to this Pope. Is it not written that Satan used this exact same mindset against our Lord in John 11:50-51 when he moved one of his cohorts to declare, “…it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;”
The pope declared we THREATEN global unity, did he not? In other words, all the wars that he is inflicting upon the peoples of the world are being blamed on us. But then, that’s how they operate. In fact, when the calamities that are already upon us increase in nature globally, that too is prophesied to be blamed on us. So be it! It just declares we are that much closer to Home! This is why the Vatican organization “Lord’s day alliance” put it in writing back in 1913 that Sunday Laws must be enforced so as to assure national security.
“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 as “principles contained in the Constitution” of the original orginization (then called the American Sabbath Union), cited in The Lord’s Day Alliance, Twenty fifth Report (1913), p6.
Still, with all this boasting and political flexing, some scoffers still see this as an impossibility. Rome would never be able to convince the governments that Sunday Laws are to be enforced upon all peoples. Thing is, that’s exactly what they plan to do. The fact of the matter is, Rome already has 175 of the 192 nations already in her camp as we speak. It’s only a matter of changing the constitutions of those nations that will cause the peoples to bow to her demands. We saw this happen in the EU in February of 2009. Rome demanded religious powers in that constitution as far back as 1991. But it wasn’t until it was ratified in 2009 that they got their prize. Then less than 24 hours after that Constitution was ratified, Rome demanded new laws, and because she had her political teeth nicely sharpened, got a Law passed in Germany outlawing Shopping in Stores on Sunday! (See this articlehttp://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,,4953600,00.html ) No, it’s not the mark of the beast yet, but it is the brickwork that will come to that end.
For those of us living in the USA, we have had to sit back and watch the daily assault upon the Constitution in the media as well as from pulpits across the land for a few years now. But over and over again Rome was loosing ground. Lawsuit after lawsuit was being drafted and they kept getting knock down a rung on their ladder of success. We know they have to change the Constitution if this is going to work for them. And we know they know it, because they have stated as such in writing all along. Pope Leo the 13th stated long ago in his encyclical, that,
“They [Catholics] must penetrate wherever possible in the administration of civil affairs… all Catholics should do all in their power to cause the constitution of states, and legislation to be modeled on the principles of the true Church.” -Encyclical of Leo XIII.
And then Cardinal Hayes said,
“But Constitutions can be changed, and non-Catholic sects may decline to such a point that the political proscription [ban] of them may become feasible and expedient. What protection would they have against a Catholic state?” -The State and the Church, pp.38,39, by Miller and Ryan, imprimatur of Cardinal Hayes.
Then in May of 2009 the United States Supreme Court officially became Roman Catholic by majority with the election of Roman Catholic Judge Sonia Sotomayor. Then just 8 short months later we see this headline hit the Newsstands all over the United States, and the World…
U.S. Supreme Court Issues Landmark Decision: Constitution is Void
“The U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark decision that serves to allow judges tovoid the Constitution in their courtrooms. The decision was issued on January 18, 2011, and the Court did not even explain the decision (Docket No. 10-632, 10-633, and 10-690)” Jan 21 11, 03:01:25
Sister White said…”By the decree of enforcing the institution of the Papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with Spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and Republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan, and that the end is near.” –Testimonies, vol. 5, p. 451
I don’t know about you, but I love hearing that because as I see what the leaders of the world are doing right now, it makes my heart fill with joy knowing that soon they will pass those Sunday Laws and we will be extremely close to leaving this sin filled orb to reside in Heaven for all eternity!
As we know, and as Rome admitted, the Vatican needs to get the Constitution off the table in the courts so as to assure a complete and utter removal later when their new constitution is ratified in this region of the World. Which by the way will be a Canadian, American, and Mexican union similar to that of the EU if they don’t flip flop again. This is why we saw the article from Zenit released on January 27 of this year.
THE POLITICAL PROBLEM OF RELIGIOUS PLURALISM
“…a “confessional” state, that is, one in which Catholicism is the official religion, is necessary to provide a proper foundation for human flourishing.
This is the same political posturing Rome played in the EU for years til they got the new constitution ratified with religious powers embedded deeply within it. With this new found power realized, we have seen dozens of political movements in just the last year alone on this prophesied desire of Rome that I would be hard pressed to share them all today. But for those listening that may be new to this Present Truth message regarding the mark of the beast, and Rome’s slow but steady course towards enforcing it, I would like to share with you some of the more potent developments in the last 12 months. I already shared earlier that they weakened the constitution in all American courts last month. We already know they are demanding a confessional State wherein the Pope controls all church functions, so keep those in mind as I share the following articles.
First off in early March of 2010 there was an article titled
Supermarkets in court over Sunday shopping. As we get close to the end we will see more and more courtrooms filled with Sunday closings of shops as Rome keeps manipulating the process of law. In Holland for example, there were five supermarkets that were being taken to court for ‘illegally’ opening their doors on Sundays. The article states “Shops may only open on every Sunday if they are considered to be in tourist areas. But the law is routinely flouted and there are a number of other loopholes. Government plans to tighten up the regulationshave been delayed because of the economic crisis.” Keep in mind, they are the ones that control the economies of all nations. This “delay” is a political ploy allowing the door to remain open regarding stricter regulations. And what are those stricter regulations going to be eventually? Sunday Laws!
Also notice that, one can see these so called Sabbaths are nothing more than a method for control. If they were true Sabbaths, no shops would be open at all, not even for tourists! What amazes me here is, the people never noticed this. Why is it tourists are somehow free from sin but locals aren’t? It simply makes no sense, but then one key feature of Babylon is confusion. The fact they do this makes our job that much easier. Someone that trusts the Bible will be able to see clearly what’s up here. So I do praise the Lord for their weak form of Sabbath observance as it makes it very apparent it is not God’s Sabbath to those we are trying to reach. Watch over the coming months, and possibly years, how Rome will test and re-test the political landscape all around the world in a bevy of different communities so as to perfect their legal arsenal for when that day finally comes that was prophesied thousands of years ago. They literally have Jesuits in every political office big and small to guarantee success.
Now, here’s something interesting… Due to complaints by many citizens, Rome learned how difficult it was to push their agenda forward on closing all shops on Sunday while allowing tourists to break Sabbath. So they came up with another plan that was actually brought forth at the EU Parliament meetings on March 24 of that year. It was called Protection of a work free Sunday. Not much came out publicly from that meeting, but one can rest assured they did in fact move some laws around like pieces on a chess board because of what happened later. Of which I will get into later. Still, their “protection for a work free Sunday” agenda still didn’t have the teeth they needed so as to pull on the heart strings of those people they hoped to lure into national apostasy with them. So, they launched a brand new government website at http://www.free-sunday.eu/en/content/objective with the main page pushing Sunday as a family day! They actually have a young couple, with two beautiful children on the main page with a title that appears to have been written on school paper by a child that says “Mum and Dad belong to us on Sunday!”
Then in April we saw World Net Daily post an article titled “Prophets wanted.” What’s actually happening here is they are attempting to push the buttons of the pastors and preachers out there that will take on the job as “prophet” to make the leaders in D.C. more accountable to a higher power. I would hope it would be the Christian God of course, but most in D.C. don’t worship Him. Those of us that study Christian prophecy know this was prophesied to occur long ago as well. As I have reported many times over the last 15 or so years, the powers that be will have to become extra evil (as they are now) so as to force the pastors and preachers to step up demanding godliness in politics. I believe all this WND article shows is Antichrist’s impatience. Satan knows when it gets real bad, (like now) eventually some of the preachers will react and do his bidding since they are in his camp already. He does this because he knows we are on the move as well. When the loud cry starts to roar, the Antichrist can prod his so called “prophets” to demand Sunday laws in D.C. as a way to slow or soften the loud cry’s effectiveness. As they did with the 2004 Tsunami, they will say the calamities are happening because the people, especially politicians, aren’t right with God and they need to go to church on Sunday to make it all go away. So Sunday Laws will be forcefully enacted. Of course, they won’t say the Sunday Laws are designed to force the weak Christians into ignoring the loud cry; No, they will focus on the disasters Satan is performing instead. Sadly, most Christians don’t read Bibles, and those that do, never study prophecy because most pastors are telling them Revelation is for those left behind during the Roman Catholic contrived 7 year trib. So they will miss this and burn for it. Luke warm Christians are more apt to react to the smokescreens Satan billows before their eyes rather than anything else. Then, almost like clock work, we saw Glenn Beck, a Mormon no less, stands up proclaiming himself the unofficial leader of the tea party and proclaims a need for godly men in office. And now we see that which we understood and preached as their obvious method of mixing religion with politics so as to bring about Sunday Laws, is exactly as the Lord revealed to us the remnant people of God. They are doing everything just as prophecy said they would.
Then a week or so later the up and coming Jewish Author Judith Shulevitz who wrote “The Sabbath World,” starts getting all sorts of prime time spots on CNN, the Colbert report, and other News Networks speaking about how the Sabbath is a must for all communities now. On the CNN report She even went so far as to say on camera that the Sabbath was a radical idea when it was first etched on Stone. Yet, if she was a Bible believing Jew as she portrays herself to be, she would know Sabbath was recorded in the Word as kept by God’s people long before it was ever etched in stone. As for her claims of it being radical, that’s just plain silly. Then on the Colbert Report this author admits in the interview that she is not only Jewish, but believes, and I quote “we should probably go back to protecting Sunday” as the Sabbath. Do you realize what this means? There is a movement within the Jewish community right now that is visible enough wherein a Jewish author can come forth declaring it is acceptable to switch their biblical Saturday Sabbath that the Jews have kept for thousands of years to the Roman Catholic Pagan day of Sunday! Actually, this was already known by those of us that do research daily as coming soon anyway. In November of 2008The Religious Action Center of Reformed Judaism actually announced their desire for a Global Sunday Sabbath as a way to stop poverty and disease. Jews have keep the 7th day Sabbath for thousands of years! But now it appears Antichrist ha been able to work his way in here as well. This is one obstacle many of us that watch Antichrist’s movements around the world knew would be a major hurdle for Rome to clear. The Jews now have their very first spokesperson declaring the Jewish people should keep Sunday instead of Saturday holy! This is HUGE! If they can get the Jewish nation to go along with this, then the Muslims and all the others religions will easily follow suit. Especially since we see all of them have Roman Catholic dogma running within their religions in the first place. Everything from rosaries in the hand of the Buddhist, to Muslims uplifting Mary. I have to say, if anyone listening never thought the prophecy regarding Sunday laws was true, this has got to be one prophetic development you can no longer deny!
Then in June Gov. Perry declares Sunday a day of prayer The article stated,
“Gov. Rick Perry has declared Sunday a day of prayer in Texas over lives lost and the environmental disaster of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.”
Amazing isn’t it? A Governor, not a preacher, has the power to “declare” a certain day of the week worthy for “prayer” when it comes to the Gulf disaster. This happening in a nation that supposedly separated the Church & State image of Rome in the laws of the land. This governor proves the Constitution has already been changed in a big way. On top of him doing that, is it not prophecied they will use disasters (real, or man made) to generate a need for Sunday Laws? Did not that Presbyterian minister do that in 2004 with the Tsunami? He literally claimed that Tsunami came because no was in church on Sunday! This is just one more nail in their coffin of deception that conditions the multitudes into looking upon Sunday as a “holy” day.”
Still, more strange acts are in order if they’re going to pull this off. So we can expect more pastors coming forward to show acceptance of Sunday laws. After all, when they joined the Vatican’s WCC they no longer have a choice but to respond. They have to follow orders. In September of 2010 one such Pastor decided to echo Rome’s desire for a church and State when he stated,
“America has gone “from one nation under God to a nation at war with God,” said Rick Scarborough, president of Vision America, at WND’s “Taking America Back Conference.” And who’s to blame? According to a pair of speakers at the Miami confab, one of most significant answers is also one the most uncomfortable for Christians. Scarborough, himself a former Southern Baptist minister, told the audience his story of recognizing the need for pastors to snap out of political complacency and get involved in the cultural war for the soul of the nation.”
This is exactly what the Lord has been warning His people through prophecy all along. Like I’ve been saying for at least 15 years now, if you get enough evil presidents in a row doing all sorts of anti-Christian acts, you will get the so called pastors to come forward asking for godly changes in D.C. They have no idea prophecy says they will mix religion and State together because they don’t study prophecy. In fact, they missed that prophetic fact when they got their 501C3 tax ID numbers . Now yes, I do understand this was going to happen anyway because our Lord said it would. But to see how easily Rome has the ability to play the pastors like puppets amazes me still. It’s no mistake this pastor is leading the pack after saying on CNN not too long ago, “I’m not a Democrat, I’m not a Republican. I’m a Christocrat.”
It’s one thing to expose the politicians, and quite another to join with them! But then, that’s all part of Rome’s plan as well. The 501C3 pastors already have the legal power to lobby law as of 2006, all they need now is solid D.C. connections to make it happen. That being said, it’s no mistake the Constitution is now made void in all State courtrooms. And it’s no mistake the Pope is seeking a global religious governing force that allows all faiths to practice freely as long as they follow Vatican guidelines. Prophecy said this day was coming, and now we see we are that much closer to the enforcement of the mark of the beast than ever before. That being said, this article just came down Tuesday of this week.
State plan to control job market 02-08-11 (Tuesday) “If the government has its way, private companies will no longer be able to hire employees without first considering people listed on a government database of unemployed South Africans. Failure to do so could result in heavy fines for companies.” Why do this you ask? What’s the big deal? Common sense actually. When they get all the companies to comply to their method of controlling the job market, within a short period of time, absolutely every able bodied worker in the African Union will be on the government’s list. As we know the African Union was just formed recently with a devout Roman Catholic dictator at the head. He was just installed a week or so back in fact. When the mark of the beast is enforced, every worker on that list that denies the Roman mandate of Sunday laws in that nation will be immediately unemployed as prophesied. This type of control is a must if they are to enforce that mark. Some may think this is a new thing. And for Africa it is. But for those of us in America that wonder if they are in such a list here in the states. Yes you are. It’s called Social Security.
“Brethren and sisters, would that I might say something to awaken you to the importance of this time, the significance of the events that are now taking place. I point you to the aggressive movements now being made for the restriction of religious liberty. God’s sanctified memorial has been torn down, and in its place a false sabbath, bearing no sanctity, stands before the world. And while the powers of darkness are stirring up the elements from beneath, the Lord God of heaven is sending power from above to meet the emergency by arousing His living agencies to exalt the law of heaven. Now, just now, is our time to work in foreign countries. As America, the land of religious liberty, shall unite with the papacy in forcing the conscience and compelling men to honor the false sabbath, the people of every country on the globe will be led to follow her example. Our people are not half awake to do all in their power, with the facilities within their reach, to extend the message of warning. -Testimonies vol. 6 page 18
