"Jesus cut through all the red tape of entangling human traditions, and kept the Sabbath day as God intended (Mark 7:7). Yet it was prophesied that some would tamper with how and when we're to observe God's Sabbath day, and forcibly attempt to replace it with their own (Dan. 7:25; Rev. 17:5).It appears the bloody issue of Sunday over Sabbath has raised its ugly head again, as Europe's new empire prepares to enforce SUNday! A cleverly coordinated campaign is underway to make Sunday a legal day of rest, under the pretense of promoting better health and family life ("Mum and dad belong to us on Sunday"). "Hundreds of Euro-MPs have signed an appeal to the European Commission to consider "work-free" Sundays" (Brits will be banned from working on Sundays if Brussels gets its way). Precious voices of dissent condemn such interference, as Stephen Booth of Open Europe decries: "There is absolutely no need for the EU to be deciding what days people can work." Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Certainly Emperor Constantine would be impressed with how the Roman wolves cloak themselves in sheep's clothing!
This Sabbath question is destined to become a bloody issue again (Rev. 13:17; 14:13)." - Remember the Sabbath
"On the venerable day of the Sun let the Magistrates and the people residing in the cities rest, and let all workshops be closed." - Edict of Constantine A.D. 321Which day is the Christian Sabbath? The same seventh day Sabbath it has always been and always will be, as honest Roman Catholic and Protestants confess! Yet Protestant prostitutes are shamefully bowing before papal authority and collaborating with Catholic politicians to promote the big lie of Sunday, empowering the Vatican's vice grip on Europe that will again apply undue pressure on all to submit to this folly and other imminent measures or suffer the consequences.
What seductive offers has Rome offered these pawns to consolidate Catholic control of the Continent? Which European royals will join the chorus and fall in line with the danse macabre led by German-Jesuit choreographers? Will any stand strong and resist being swept away by the bewitching sorcerer-pope as he misleads the masses?
“In his first weekly papal audience, on April 27, Ratzinger used the occasion ‘to express what may become a central theme of his papacy: the Christian roots of Europe’ (International Herald Tribune, April 28, 2005).
The bitter roots of Catholic Europe will strangle freedom! Initially covert Catholic decrees imposing Sunday and such will all seem so harmless, but the thumbscrews will continue as suggestions become demands as history testifies:
Ban On Buying and Selling
Not only did Constantine enforce SUNday observance in the Roman empire, Pope Alexander III decreed at the Council of Tours in A.D. 1163: "Whereas a damnable heresy [Sabbath-keeping] has for some time lifted its head...and spread infection...concealing itself like a serpent in its folds; as soon as its followers shall have been discovered, let no man afford them refuge on his estates; neither let there be any communications with them in buying and selling..." (Rev. 13:17). People were forbidden to engage in commerce with those branded as a heretic or Judaizer!
The Roman Catholic Storm is about to strike! Can't you hear the rumbling thunder? The final revival of the "Holy Roman Empire" prepares to make its mark on mankind! First folks are encouraged to rest on Sunday, later they're threatened to rest on Sunday and those who expose and resist such deathblows to political and religious freedom will be ostracized and their lives endangered! Think it can't happen again? That Europe is too secular and advanced today? Think again. That's what folks were disarmed to believe about Germany prior to WWII. The plain truth is European secular and religious leaders, for their own reasons, have joined dark forces to forge Germany's Fourth Reich - just like Herbert W. Armstrong warned!
