We know, without a doubt, endtime events will go as follows: the man of sin, called the “antichrist”, also called the pope will cause the Catholic Church to rise to the same power it had during the Dark Ages. We also know the Protestant Church, especially in the United States will join hands with the Roman Catholic Church to create a One World Church which then will enforce their beliefs upon the people as they did during those years of the Dark Ages. One of the laws which will bring persecution upon God’s people will be to enact legislation to prosecute anyone not keeping Sunday as the day of worship to allegedly appease a god who seems to be angry with the world because of the catastrophes brought about by natural and man-made causes and when it is at its worse, Christ will come to save His people. This we know. Have you ever wondered what those who don’t believe in this believe?
Think about it for a moment.
If the issue, for them, is not about God’s Law being trampled upon, then what do they have, or doing, which causes them to be persecuted? I mean, if they’re God’s people, then what do they have to fear? What is it they’re doing that would cause them to fear the Tribulation? No doubt, many of them want to believe in the lie of the “Secret Rapture”, because the “secret” is what is the reason why you feel you need to be out of here when things are getting rough? What are you doing which will cause men to hate you and want to see you dead? When all you’re doing is in line with what the antichrist is already proposing and through civil powers enforcing? Why would you fear anything when you’re already in the majority of people who don’t keep God’s Law, believing it nailed to the cross? What distinguishing mark, pun intended, separates you from those who are going to be concerned about persecution? It cannot be your beliefs and if it is, which one?
The Bible says,
“It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law. Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.” Psalms 119:126-127 (KJV)
David gives us the reason. Who has voided God’s Law? What law is being discussed? The next verse provides the answer, “Thy commandments”. David only knew of one Law, “God’s Commandments”, which were God’s. Now, David was more than aware of what is called the, “Mosaic Law”, but they were not held highly as God’s Law, the Ten Commandments, because God wrote those ten with His own finger, on tablets of stone. Moses’ law would eventually come to an end, but God’s Law would be held forever.
John later would give us the clue to this whole world endtime events by stating,
“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” Rev 14:12 (KJV)
There can be no confusion in this matter. There are no “commandments of Jesus” which is mentioned nor can supersede the Commandments of God, those Ten Commandments. Why would the saints need “patience”? Patience to go through what? Could it be the awful time known as the “Tribulation”? Well, for that answer read, on your own, verse 9. John wrote this in 95 AD, over 60 years after Christ left this earth, signifying the “Commandments of God” are to be kept. Surely, this must be truth!
Are you keeping the Commandments of God? Each one of them? Especially that fourth one which tells you to, “Remember the Sabbath day (Saturday) to keep it holy?” Are you? Because this is what will separate God’s true people from those calling themselves God’s people who will have to worry because THIS is the only distinguishing characteristic which literally brings to light what is different between both groups. Do Catholics keep the seventh day Sabbath? No. Do you keep the seventh day Sabbath presently? No. Then you have nothing to fear! Except God Himself.
