A Line in The Sand
Do we still need to keep the Ten Commandments?
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
- John 14:15 (KJV)
In fact, Jesus makes it very clear:
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 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. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
- Matthew 5:17-20 (KJV)
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
- James 2:10 (KJV)
The Sabbath day is a special commandment. On that day, God wants us to rest with Him, study the Word of God, and draw close.
Satan can only get you to worship him, if he destroys your relationship with God first.
Satan is a deceiver. Remember Adam and Eve, where he got them to break God's Commandment "not to eat from the tree". Once they sinned, satan could get them to worship them. Same thing with the Ten Commandments.
Satan's attempts to change God's Laws (including the Sabbath day) are recorded in the book of Daniel.
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 7:25 (KJV)
Check out the changes to times and law that were made by the antichrist (Roman Catholic Church):
|Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
|Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
|Removed. The Roman Catholic Church wants to worship statues of Mary, etc
|Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
|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.
|Change of Sabbath (Saturday) to Holy Day (Sunday)
|Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
|Thou shalt not kill.
|Thou shalt not commit adultery.
|Thou shalt not steal.
|Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
|Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.
|Split in two to compensate for removing the second commandment
The Roman Catholic Church, referred to in the Bible as "woman on the beast", are quite happy with the changes they made.
Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change [from Sabbath to Sunday] was her act. And the act is the mark of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters.
- Faith of Our Fathers, p. 14 C.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons
The Roman Catholic Church thinks its above the law, and says that the change is her mark of authority.
And that's the Mark of the beast. It's not a chip.
By infiltrating the other churches the Roman Catholic Church has successfully changed the Sabbath to Sunday. There is no verse whatsoever in the Bible that justifies moving Sabbath to Sunday. None!!
On that note, it's interesting that God also has a "mark", called a Seal. There are three elements to a Seal, e.g. a Name, a Title, and a Domain. For example: Barack Obama (Name), President (Title), and the USA (Domain). If you apply that concept to the fourth commandment you get: Lord (Name), Creator (Title), and heaven and earth (Domain).
So now we have the Seal of God, and the Mark of the beast.
We have a very clear line drawn in the sand. Who do you worship? Jesus (Sabbath) or satan (Sunday)?
And this will be the end times issue. Should we keep the commandments? How about Sabbath? Whose Laws do we obey?
It's just a day right?!?
But then why is the antichrist working so hard to enforce the Sunday Law as part of their One World Religion, which they want you to join.
Right now, if you're in a Sunday church, defending eternal hell, and are waiting for a secret rapture, you've almost got a mark of the beast on your forehead already.
The mark of the beast = knowingly keeping Sunday instead of Sabbath.
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
- Hebrews 10:26-27 (KJV)
Sabbaths are a delight, don't miss out.
Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for 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 (KJV)
