Lesson 14. Revelation' s HELL-.FIRE and DEATH.

                     WHAT, really happens when we die?  [ OR where are the dead?]

   Do YOU, remember the city wide strike by city workers, on the city garbage pick-up? This was way back in 1981, when unhappy workers stopped collecting the garbage for several days.
      As you can imagine this was a real smelly health problem as well. Nearly 100,000 TONS of rotting garbage piled up on the sidewalks, becoming a feast for the city' s many, many rats. Public Health authorities, warning of the dangers to general health for typhoid and other ills, proclaimed a general health emergency, the first since the 1931 Polio epidemic.
     New York, people, never at a loss, began putting their garbage into plastic bags, and into cardboard boxes, and wrapped them up as if they contained a present, and left them in their unlocked cars, ans sure enough many a thief, got the Presents"!
      While deceiving a thief may be a good idea, there are deceptions within Christianity that are extremely dangerous. This lesson will cover the very first LIE, the devil used, that was recorded in the Bible. And much of Christianity teaches this Satanic Lie, as Bible fact! As not ONE person has come back from the dead in 2,000 years, Satan keeps pushing this lie, "Man' s soul is immortal", when the Bible clearly states: 
1 Timothy 6:15-16. "Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen."

      However men teach: Genesis 3:3-4  "But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:"
      So they end this teaching with "Die, and soul goes straight to heaven while the body's buried!"

None of this in Biblically correct!

1. But. . .what hope do we have of overcoming death? Is there life after death?
     Revelation 1:18-19   "I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;"    {The "I" is Jesus Christ}

NOTE: This clearly tells all who reads, that Jesus is the one who has come back from the dead, and HE does have the "Keys" [power over] hell [Hades, sheol, the common grave of mankind] and death!]

     1 Thessalonians 4:13-15  "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep."
Note: Is it not clear, that our Father in Heaven wants all to know about death, and what happens during that state?  Remember the word death is used 300 times in His Word! The Bible has a clear answer.

3. WHAT did JESUS call death?
     John 11:11  "These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep."
Note: When Lazarus died, Jesus said our friend sleeps.  Any friend of Jesus who dies, sleeps in Christ, and, dying, know they shall awake again, someday at His Advent-- HIS return.

    Genesis 1:27  "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
     Genesis 2:7  . "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

NOTE: "...and man BECAME a living soul."   A dead person is but a body, a living person IS a soul! Life is possible ONLY with God's "Breath of Life", as only HE is the source of all life! A soul IS NOT any ADDED feature to any human being, contrary to what most teach!

     Ecclesiastes 12:6-7  "Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it."

NOTE: "...SPIRIT..." this is God's breath of life,  in the Hebrew -- "RUWACH". This is the Bible's description of death which is REVERSE of our Creation! When we die we return to this earth eventually as dust! Any person with NO BREATH,  is what?  DEAD!

6. Are there any thoughts or actions among the dead?
    Ecclesiastes 9:5 " For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten."
    Psalms 115:17  "The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence."
    Job 7:5-10  "My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and become loathsome. My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope. O remember that my life is wind: mine eye shall no more see good.  The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more: thine eyes are upon me, and I am not.  As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more. He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more. "
     Psalms 6:5  "For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?"

Note: Death is as a sleep. You are not aware of your surroundings while sleeping, and the next thing you know you wake up! Those who sleep in Christ, shall also wake up, when He calls at His return! This is the First resurrection, the Just shall live evermore. the unjust shall remain for another 1,000 years, during the Millennium.

       Acts 2:29  "Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us unto this day."

NOTE: Please this verse with care. IF. . .if God's saints go to heaven at death, then King David, who was a "Man after God's own heart," would or should be there right? Yet the Bible tells us, via God's inspiration in the New Testament, 1,000 years plus latter that David is still buried and has NOT YET gone to Heaven!
Ditto for Mary, there is NOT a single verse that even hints that she has been resurrected  no matter what the Roman church system tells you! 

More texts that tells what happens when we die.
Isaiah 28:18. Man dies, and where is he> Man lies down, and rises not till the heavens be no more...
                        [2 Peter 3:13 new heavens and a new earth]
               : 19. The living, the living, he shall praise thee.
Psalm 146:4. He returns to the earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
Genesis 3:19  "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18  "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
    1 Corinthians 15:21-23  "For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the first-fruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming."
     John 11:24-25  "Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:"
     Acts 2:29  "Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us unto this day."
    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18  "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words."

NOTE: The day of the Second Advent, the Return of Christ, IS that last day of flesh on earth for 1,000 years. All in Christ living or not shall be living with the same glorious body that Christ has from His resurrection moment fore wards! Those NOT in Christ, the unjust, shall perish at His return, and resurrected, just exactly as they were with all their ills and pains, at the end of the 1,000 years, to join Satan and CO., in the Lake of Fire's one and only time of use! This counters another "Tradition" of men. a burning hell then now and evermore! All this is from the mind of Satan!
        [(j.b.) Please think here is man A sentenced as thief because he stole a loaf of bread for his hungry child, some 6,000 years ago, but at the same time man B murdered 100's yet both suffer, in hell, the same amount of time? Where is there Righteousness and Justice in this human idea?]

9. Who began this idea that the dead do NOT really die?
     Genesis 3:3-4  "But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.4. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:"
Note: Men have swallowed that lie, "hook,line and sinker", ever since! This contradicts the Bible in: Ezekiel 18:4  "Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die." [Romans 6:23]
Note 2: For some years now it's been a 'rage' in Hollywood's ideas, about life after death, and all those shows that appear that we can speak to the dead.... Read Chapter 28 of ! Samuel and learn what the Bible says of mediums, and speaking to the dead.Know when one does this they speak to Satan and crew.

10: How has the devil, Satan, continued this lie, and why?
     2 Corinthians 11:13-15. "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."

Note: If the devil can appear to look like an angel of light, he can also appear as one's dead Aunt come back to "life"! The Bible illiterates, say they speak to the dead, and they fully believe they are speaking to their loved ones, but the fact is, Satan knows all about us and things we know none should or can know. He and his angelic demons, are not visible to us, and they are near all who Satan thinks they can be made open to his side! This "speaking to the dead," in but one method he uses. His present HEADQUARTERS, HOLLYWOOD, is only too happy to feed this garbage to you!


      Luke 23:42-43  "And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise."
NOTE:  All the Words in the Holy Bible's 66 books are inspired by God, BUT the punctuation, verse numbering, and, chapters are NOT! By the translators, who put a "COMMA" before the word "TODAY" fully changed the meaning of Christ's statement. the comma should have been placed After the word today, thus reading : "I say to you today, you will be with me in Paradise" 
   But how can we know this fact?
   Jesus DID NOT go to Heaven that day, He was placed into the tomb, and rose on the Sunday the First day, just at daybreak. He ascended 50 days latter! He told Mary... as they met that morning.. John 20:17 " Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."
Paradise is another word for heaven[Revelation 2:7]   Plus look at Acts 19:11-12' s comma at the "sick handkerchiefs in the K.Bible. 

11. What happens to the WICKED when they die?
     2 Peter 2:9 "The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:"
     John 5:28-29 " Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation."
    NOTE: Contrary to much human teaching, the wicked are NOT sent into punishments by fire, but they are Reserved, or held until punishment. ,[In the Lake of Fire' s one time use] The Bible says, all that are in the graves shall come out in one of TWO resurrection. The wicked will come out into the SECOND RESURRECTION. to receive their punishments at that time!. [Rev. 20}

12. How will the WICKED be punished?
     2 Peter 2:6-7 "And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample [example]that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:"
Note: Read Genesis 6 first few verses 1-7, and know the reason for the world-wide flood!  Yet know this also.... John 3:15-17 "That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."

NOTE 2: Sodom and Gomorrah were burned to the ground, by fire. The Bible says this was for an example of what shall happen to to ALL the wicked, who accept NOT, Christ! BUT ARE THEY STILL BURNING TODAY?  NO! Otherwise they would have found this location centuries ago rather only a few tens of years.
     Jesus told us that we all have two choices: PERISH, OR EVERLASTING LIFE,  NOTICE, He did NOT say everlasting burning! [However the results ARE forever!]

      Revelation 20:9-10 " And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."

Matthew 25:41 "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:"

NOTE: How can he "Be in charge" when HE himself shall be its victim? Satan shall be the first top be cast into the Lake of Fire, right here on this earth, in full view of the Saints, who have overcome sin, and are in the New Jerusalem the Holy city, where they have resided in Heaven for the past 1,000 years, but as Revelation 21:2 clearly shows, all come to rest on this earth.
(j.b.) Rev.21, tells us that this city is in our measure, 350 mile square and the height is the same. Thus it's base is about the same size as the State of Oregon. Now do some research and find the size of land God promised Abraham, from the sea, {Mediterranean] to the great river (Euphrates),; is today near 350 miles!

14. BUT. . .but   does everlasting fire mean the wicked burn forever?
      Jude 1:7-8 "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.  Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities."
Note In Revelation 21's no more pain  sorrows or death, shows this forever punishings will last ONLY LONG ENOUGH TO DO THE JOB GOD SET FORTH!  Satan's the one who has painted GOD as Lives to punish God.Satan and all his! [ the results are eternal] Look at this....
Jonah 2:6 " I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God."
Note: To Jonah all this must have seemed to last for ever, but it did not, right?

15. Where will the Lake of Fire be?
       Revelation 20:9-10 " And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."
     Revelation 21:1-2  "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."
    Revelation 21:5 "And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful."

Note: The Lake of Fire will burn up all the wicked, and it takes place on this earth's surface. This same fire will also purify, and remove ALL traces of present human efforts and works, as well as ALL pollution, over the entire earth, then The Garden of Eden shall be recreated, over all earth!

16. Will sin ever rise its head again?
      Malachi 4:1 " For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch."
     Nahum 1:9  "What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time."

Note: The fires that shall burn up all the wicked, they shall be reduced to ashes, thus they will not ever have any existence anymore forever. The Bible says, affliction, sin, shall not rise up a second time, When the fires go out, due to lack of fuel, it's ALL over and never worry about sin ever again!

Revelation 20:14 " And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."

Note: There shall be those who shall die three times......

Revelation 1:7 " Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen."

Life's enemy, both yours and mine, is DEATH, agree? But guess who has the keys to both death and Hell, meaning the graves?
    Revelation 1:18  "I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death."

Would YOU, dear reader, like to accept Jesus as the only one who has the keys to life and death?

Then Visit your local Seventh day Adventist Church any Saturday/Sabbath @ 9:15 AM. You just may be very glad at your welcome, after all we all know we are God's child.

                                  DO. . . .ALL CHURCHES. . . LEAD. . . YOU. . .TO HEAVEN?

       SUSPECTED OF FAKING HIS "MIRACLES" ,  "Faith Healer", Peter Popoff was under secret investigation.
      Undercover agents were able to intercept and record secret radio transmissions that came from Peter's wife, to a miracle ear which he wore during his meetings. Peter's wife would casually interview guests to get their names, addresses and any ailment they might have. Then she would secretly broadcast the information to Peter's miracle ear piece.. When Peter would then call out the person's name the person would be impressed that the preacher actually knew their name and address, and ailment, they would immediately think IT WAS GOD giving him this information.
     Now a person when called out, as this, convinced that God was going to heal them, and since they went there filled with hope of healing, they actually experienced feeling of euphoria and even some relief from their illness, but that would be only very temporary.
     So the undercover investigators hired "actors", to come to his meetings acting out some illness. Sure enough, the wife would interview them, getting their name, address and illness. Sure enough, they'd be called up by Peter who would recite just what they told his wife. When confronted with evidence, Peter denied that he faked his healing and insisted he was a true prophet sent from God!

       Is there a way to tell if something is from God or not?
     Yes there is a "Deception Detector" that can tell the difference! The Bible is a flawless deception detector, and YOU are going to learn how to use it as such, to find out IF GOD has indeed a true church on His earth!

1. Does God have only ONE true "Last Day" Church?
     Revelation 12:7  "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,"
    Ephesians 4:4-5  "There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism,"

Note: As shown in Bible Symbols list, a Woman represents a church [Jeremiah 6:2 + 2 Corinthians 11:2 + Ephesians 5:23-27] In Rev.12:7 the dragon [devil] is angry at the woman [the pure church] thus proving this woman being symbolic of a good church, in God's eyes. The Bible tells us there shall be a  (1)Remnant,  or last remaining part, of God' s true church. The Bible also says there is only  (2) one true church body.
(1) Remnant- Romans 9:27; 11:15. Revelation. 11:13..
(2) One Body - 1 Corinthians 12:13.

2  So. . . why area there so many "Christian'' denominations? 
        Isaiah 4:1. "And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach."
Note: Yes these women wanted to apart of this man, for their own personal  reasons, earn their way, do "their own thing" but called by his name to take away our reproach.  {public shame} With this Jesus predicted [remember he IS the Word,  John 1:1-3,14] that many would take his name ['Christians'], but they'd live under their own rules, not His! "Shopping" for a church is like shopping for BREAKFAST CEREALS"  so many to chose from! Which one is right one in GOD's eyes? Christianity is now by far the most popular religion, but with 34,000 "denominations" how can they all fit within the Ephesians 4:4-5 guidelines in question 1? Yet do not all make the claim that they. . . .are THE true Church?
    Can you admit, to self, that Satan is a master at hiding God's truth in a maze of differing faiths?   SO....

3. Does it really matter what a church believes?
     Matthew 7:17-24  "Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 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. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:"
NOTE: What's the "Bottom Line " here? Jesus is searching for all those who DO the will of His [and yours} Father , and is not a self- called. . .  'Christian' . . .in name only!

4. So how can anyone really find God' s True Church, as per the Bible's guidelines? [ 5 Major Points]
     (A)  It will be a all 10 Commandment keeping church. 
           Revelation 14:12  "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. "
Note: God's saints will keep, the whole law all Ten, yet knowing we are prone to forgetting, He began His Sabbath commandment with 'Remember'. The Bible also tells us that IF, we break one, be break them all!
        James 2:10 " For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." Please know that James, this James, was Christ's 1/2 brother by blood, both came from Mary.

     (B) It will be a worldwide church preaching God's end time messages. Rev 14: 6-11.
           Matthew 24:14  "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."
           Mark 16:15-16  "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned."

Note: God's true church will be preaching [ witnessing] the gospel in all the world, not a part of it but all. Jesus said to preach the gospel to the entire world, to every creature [ every human]

         What are GOD' s End Time messages to the world?
1.   These are the Three angels Messages found in Revelation 14.
2.   Give glory to God by worshiping Him, as Creator of the Heavens, earth the sea, and everything that in them is. [Language taken straight from the Sabbath commandment Exodus 20:7-11]
3.    Babylon is fallen, therefore come out of her confusions/false doctrines/worships.[ Rev.18:4]
4. Warning all the world,not to receive the Mark of the Beast [Rev.13;7;14:11; 15:2;16:2; 19:20 and 20:4. Now who thinks that this IS NOT important for God to give so many warnings?

(C) It will have all the Spiritual Gifts, including prophecy!
       1 Corinthians 1:6-8 " Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:  Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ."
       Revelation 12:17  "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."
       Revelation 19:9-10  "And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."

Note: God' s true church will be lacking NO Spiritual Gifts. The Bible says that the remnant will have the Testimony of Jesus. which is the Spirit of Prophecy. If you're looking for God's true church it MUST have all Spiritual Gifts including the gift of prophecy, would you you agree, so far?  Please note Rev. 12:17 above ""The dragon went to make war..." now I ask you does it make sense to you, that he'll make war, with those he has already totally deceived?

          Does a true Prophet have to be a man, or can a woman also be a prophet?

     Acts 2:17  "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:"

A Partial list of Woman Prophets in God's Word.
Exodus 15:20. Miriam, sister of Moses, was a prophetess.
Judges 4:4. Deborah, "Judged Israel" she helped inspire Barak in conquering the Canaanites
Isaiah 8:3 Isaiah' s wife was a prophetess.
2 Kings 22:14 + 2 Chronicles 34:22. Huldah aided Hilkiah the priest in the reforms of Josiah.
Luke 2:36-38. Anna, the prophetess greeted her infant Lord Jesus.
Acts 21: 9 . Philip's four daughters were all prophets.

      Are there Biblical tests for a true prophet, test we can use to determine if they speak for God?
(1)  They will agree 100% with the law and the prophets [Isaiah 8:20}
(2) All their predictions will come to pass. [Deuteronomy 18:22]
(3) They will all bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit, Love, Joy, peace etc. [ Matthew 7:16]
(4) Every message will be centered in Christ Jesus [ 1 John 4:1-3]

NOTE: If any prophet fails in any of these tests, he or she is NOT a true prophet from God!

IS there a Commandment keeping, world-wide church, which has the gift of prophecy?

    YES, there is but one church, [yes it teaches that GOD has faithful saints in many other folds [churches] ] on this earth that fills all these Bible characteristics, the Seventh day Adventist Church.  It is a Commandment keeping, worldwide church, that has the gift of prophecy. Though relatively small in number, they are operating thousands of churches, schools and hospitals in just about every nation on earth. The S.D.A. Church has more missionaries going into every inhabited country on earth, including the North Pole, than any other Protestant group. In fact, 1 out of every 5 missionaries worldwide is a Seventh day Adventist.

Does this church have a Prophet?
    Ellen G. White, one of the founders of the S.D.A. Church, passes all the Biblical tests for a true Prophet. Although she never claimed the title of "Prophet" for herself. {She called her self but a messenger} She counseled the church for 70 years, while writing 15 million words, long hand, in producing over 50 books, more than any American woman to date. She received over 2,000 visions, and wrote them and taught them, yet she received but a 3rd grade education, while her command of the English was beyond reproach. She was Quoted quite frequently by news commentator Paul Harvey. Her writing still today, drives this Church ever closer to the Bible and to Jesus, whom she never failed to lift up.
Her Quote of many "You may have all the possessions of this world; but I must have Jesus." E.G. White, Testimonies to the Church vol 2. p. 592.  {no her books were NOT pamphlets!]

(C) It will be good stewards of the resources God has given them.
      2 Corinthians 9:7  "Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver."
Note: It is considered a privilege for a Christian to give. Every resource is a gift from God, thus we are only returning to Him that which is all His, yet only 1/10th for Tithe.  Give cheerfully, or not all!

Are there then some offerings required?
     Malachi 3:8-10  "Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."

Note: A tithe, or 10% of one's increase, wage or profit, is required from God's people to support the work of the gospel in His worldwide church. Tithing differs from free-will offerings, and is to be given in addition to these. God invites us to test Him in  this, to see if He will indeed pour out abundant blessing in our lives.
[(j.b.) To this fact I can personally attest to. Stuff we own, seldom needs repair, beyond normal maintenance, tires last much longer than ads claim, and gas mileage, is better for us than others with same vehicle, but newer. Clothing and shoes lasts much longer for us than neighbors, thanks be to GOD]

(E)  It will follow all Biblical guidelines.
      Does the Bible give guidelines on clothing and such?
       1 Peter 3:3-4  "Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price."

Note: The Bible guides us not to show off our wealth, by the owning or wearing gold or jewels, to dress modestly, not to be proud, and become as a peacock. Jesus was humble both insides and out, He wants us to be the same way. Satan became the devil because of self pride, remember?

  What does the Bible say about jewels and wearing them?
    Isaiah 3:16-21 " Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:  Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts.  In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, [ interwoven gold strands in hair, or even a gold hair-net]  and their round tires like the moon,  The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,  The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,  The rings, and nose jewels,"

Note: Some far East peoples wear all the families wealth on their person.

Exodus 33:5-6  "For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of Israel, Ye are a stiff necked people: I will come up into the midst of thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee. And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb."
Note: Due to the dangers of pride, remember that was Satan 's demise, God asks us to take off anything that was decorating our bodies. Read Exodus 33:4-6 how this saved lives.

5. Does God expect me to be different that the world?
    2 Corinthians 6:15-18  "And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."

Note: God has asks us to be separate from the world and the worldly. No to be eccentric but Jesus was different form others, yet be fully credible.

6. Will there be Sunday keepers in haven? if so, why change?
     Acts 17:30  "And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:"

Note: God holds us accountable for the truth that we know, and for the truth we have the opportunity to know. He wants us us to know His truth so He can bring happiness to your lives. Once we know the truth, He asks us to repent of our previous wrongs.

7. Should I, or anyone, leave a church that doesn't follow the entire Bible?
     Revelation 18:4  "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."

Note: What is your intellect, no not feelings, but intellect, telling you about the above verse? Stay where you are and receive what? "Her Plaques" but what are they?  Read of the seven plagues in Revelation 15 and 16 chapters, and stay "With her" and join Stan and all them, in the Lake of Fire!
   Is this harsh? OH yes it is, but then to, so is Eternal death compared to eternal life agree?
But. God gave each of us the gift of a free-will, so the matter and the choice is up to YOU! Chose life or death, both shall be forever!

Next:  "Revelation' s Hell Fire and Death"

     ON NOVEMBER 8, 2008 Jim O'Neil, age 65, was flying alone in his Cessna airplane at 15,000 over North Yorkshire, England, when he suffered a stroke.
     The stroke left Jim totally blind. He immediately radioed for help. His distress call was answered by Paul Gerrard who was flying nearby in a military training airplane. He flew his trainer to within 300 feet of Jim's plane and established radio contact. Then, using a series of very carefully chosen words,, he tried to guide Jim into maneuvering his plane down to the airport. Using words like, "Turn left.. a little right... reduce power... 10% flaps", he skillfully guided Jim down to and onto the runway.

    What was it that had saved Jim's life? Jim was saved by following word for word instructions, right? He followed exactly the instructions that he heard and he survived what should, or could, have been, a fatal crash landing.
     Life for us here on earth is much like that flight. The end of the world is like this landing. There may be a lot of hazards along the journey but the most dangerous part of our journey is the LANDING". What can we each, do that we know we are saved and thus ensure our "Safe Landing?"  Well, basically, its the same thing that saved Jim O'Neil, can also save us: that is, following word for word instructions given to us by our Creator, in His Word, the Holy Bible.
      You see, while He was on this earth, for a short 33 years, He spoke of a parable about ten virgins .[ Sorry but this means only that they have not chased after "Strange religions", or human doctrines] In that parable, He mentioned on thing that we absolutely need in order to have a safe landing at the time of the end. It is most important for the Christians living at that time. { Please know that none knows when their last breath shall be, so  the very best time to get ready is NOW!]


1. Why did Jesus tell of the parable of the Ten Virgins?
    Matthew 25:1  "Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom."
NOTE: Within His directive, He gave us three things that we must have, for eternal life.
(1) Virgin Someone who professes a pure faith, has knowledge of the truth, and is expecting the 2nd Coming of Jesus. Jeremiah 6:2 " I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman."
 2 Corinthians 11:2  "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ."
Ephesians 5:23-27  "For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish."    {(j.b.) if all did these things with a marriage, there'd be no divorce agree?]
(2) Lamps: Psalms 119:105  "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.}
(3) Bridegroom: {Jesus]Matthew 25:10-12  "And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not."

Note: In this parable, Christ is illustrating the experience of the church that shall live just before His coming.

2. What was it that dived the ten into two different groups?
      Matthew 25:2-4  "And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps."
Note: Five were wise and five were foolish. The determining factor was whether they had their lamps filled with oil or not. Lamps without oil, can't give light, right? The oil was for the lamps to burn for light. Please remember in Bible Symbols list that oil represent the Holy Bible and the Knowledge of it. [PS. 119:105]

3.. What does the oil represent in this parable?
     1 Samuel 16:13  "Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah."
NOTE: The oil represents the Holy Spirit. When David's  head was anointed with oil, then the Holy Spirit entered into David.   Please read Zechariah 4th chapter, here we are told about the oil that was used to make the 7 candles burn in the Temple. Speaking of that oil it says, "Not by might, nor by power, but by MY Spirit says the Lord."
Note 2: 1 Corinthians 3:17  "If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are." [God created YOU, and is willing His Spirit to be within YOU, to change you, over time so YOU can have the Character of Christ, thus ready for eternal life! All each must to is be b e willing to allow this to happen!]

4. Because the Bridegroom was was late, what happened to all the Virgins?
         Matthew 25:6-7. "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps."
NOTE: Because the Bridegroom [Jesus] didn't come when THEY expected Him to, all 10 fell asleep, even the wise  five. However, even falling asleep did NOT disqualify the wise 5 from going home with our Bridegroom, when latter HE did come! [Yes this IS yet future]

5. What did the Virgins do when the Bridegroom finally did return?
      Matthew 25:6-7  "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps."

NOTE:  What was the FIRST thing they did?
       They TRIMMED their lamps, right? They put all their attention to their lamps, Now if the Lamps represents the Bible, what would TRIMMING their lamps mean? Well trimming the lamps means you are getting ready to light it, to get it burning.
      Remember the Bible is TRUTH ! So, would trimming one's lamp not mean searching for Bible truths?  Psalms 119:105  "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."

6. But, why did they trim their lamps rather than rush after the Bridegroom?
     Matthew 24:5  "For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many."

NOTE: In this chapter Christ said two times "Let no man deceive you" , or its equal, and then spoke of deceptions and false teachings, in VS. 11,23, and 26, that would deceive many! They Trimmed their lamps because they need to see clearly that this was in fact the real and true Bridegroom, and not just another impostor, counterfeiting the truth of GOD!
     Ephesians 4:5  "One Lord, one faith, one baptism,"
     1 Timothy 2:5  "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
WHY is this so?  Many say this is arrogance of our part, to exclude all other human belief systems! Well sorry, but is it arrogant for one to say "This sweet Lady is my wife"? If you agree, then all truth is arrogant by YOUR standards, right?  Besides there in NO prophecy in the writings of any other so-called holy men nor their books, only the The Holy Bible has it and fully 1/3 of is prophecy, much of which, but not yet all, has come to pass, as written, and on time, if a time element is given!

7. What terrible discovery did the foolish Virgins make?   Please read this story of Matthew 25.
     Matthew 25:8  "And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out."
     Matthew 25:2-3  "And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:"

Note: The foolish ones found their lamps were OUT of oil, thus no light! Now a burning lamp. represents an Active Bible Study life, that is powered and fueled by the Holy Spirit. Therefore a wise person, not only is active in Bible Studies, but also puts into daily practice the Bible's Principles, in their daily lives! Sadly we have few wise but many that are foolish, believing the doctrines of man, such as evolution, covered on other blogs in this site.
   WHY can this be said?
    John 16:13  "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come."   [+ John 14:17:15:26:16:13. Eph. 1:13; 5:9. 2Thes. 2:13. 1 John 4:6.]
Note: Through the Holt Spirit, God's word is a light as it becomes a transforming power in the life of the receivers!

8. What is the Holy Spirit and what is His purpose?
          John 16:13-14  "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you."
Note: If one wants to begin any argument, just ask "What IS truth"?  John 17:17  "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. "

Note: The Holy Spirit's job is ti help us understand, and gives us the power to put into practice the things we find in God' s Word. Jesus said "He will guide us into all truth. Did you notice that the "OIL"  [ Holy Spirit] goes into the LAMP [ the Holy Bible}  and not into the Virgin. In turn, the lamp gives light [truth] to the person with the Lamp!
     Please know, the Holy Spirit, is NOT a "tool", we can tap into, or to do things for our own purposes. The Bible tells us that we don't use Him, He uses us, by transforming us into the Christ's character,
1 Corinthians 12:11  "But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will."

                             IS THE HOLY SPIRIT A A DIVINE BEING OR A FORCE?

JESUS said HE is!
John 16:13. "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come."
Note:  Please take notice of the seven PERSONAL PRONOUNS. . .  HE. . .  in this verse.

     John 16:14-15  "He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you."

     What's the purpose of using a personal pronoun HE? Well rather than a given name, we can use he or she right? It is much easier than to write a  a mane with 26 letters in.But look at this next verse......
     Ephesians 4:30  "And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption."
Note: If, as some believe, that the Holy Spirit, is force, or a power, how can we greave, [ hurt His feelings ] a force, that has feelings?  THINK!Acts 8:29-30  "Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, [Isaiah] and said, Understand thou what thou readest?
Note: Can a force, speak?

8. Can the Virgins, OR YOU, get oil at midnight?
     Matthew 25:9  "But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves."
Note: Dear reader, I hope and pray, that none of YOU, will be too late, for all this is a life or death situation question, and both shall be eternal!   Please know this simple fact: " we all. . . .chose where we go, either to the Heaven with Christ, or to the Lake of Fire with Satan. NONE shall be be lost, unless they so chose it by disobedience and rebellion against Christ!  WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
    No person can "borrow"   "OIL" from an other, No person can believe for another, no person can receive the Holy Spirit for or from an other, period. Noe can one "BUY" their share from any source, as Heaven is NOT for sale, with any of men' s currencies. Pure love is never bought nor sold, but freely given!. 

10 How important is the "OIL", the Holy Spirit?
      Matthew 25:11-12  "Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not."

Note: Did the foolish Virgins find oil to buy at midnight? The parable doesn't say, but think of the message given here! How can one learn the enough from the Bible, to get ready for Christ's return, when He's ALREADY  on His way? The time to buy auto insurance is before an accident, not after, right? Well think of your Bible studies, as "Heaven' s Insurance". For the reason, to all to repent and ask for forgiveness, before we die, as none can so do, while in the grave, agree?  NOW. . .right now is the time to ask for the Holy n Spirit's help in your learning, as none knows the time of one's last breath!

11. What does Jesus mean by the phrase Lord, Lord?
     Matthew 7:21  "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."

Note: Jesus used this phrase "LORD, LORD" only 5 times and only HE uses it. EACH time He used it, He was speaking of people who say they know Him, or say they are His followers, or claim to be "Christians" when they do NOT, obey nor do His will, as do all those who shall meet Him in the air! { Please re-read Lessons 7,11 again}

Here's  the other 4 times.

(!1 Matthew 7:22-23  "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."
(2) Matthew 25:11-12  "Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not."
(3) Luke 6:46  "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?"
(4) Luke 13:25  "When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:"

12. How do we get the oil, of the Holy Spirit?
     Luke 11:13  "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?"
     Acts 5:32  "And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him."

Note: Please do NOT let the "ye, being evil", throw you off, especially when we are compared to GOD, we are all fallen far short of HIS character.

     2 Peter 3:9  "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."

Note GOD our Father in Heaven, is eager to give you the ultimate gifts of "Peace of Mind" and Eternal life, and all we need to do is to turn to Him and ask for His help in learning His ways! This comes to us in the form of the Holy Spirit, who with our willing hearts, prepares us for life eternal by having take on Christ' s character, and His "Robe of righteousness", as we have none of our won!

     All YOU need to do is to find within the Holy Bible of common use, a verse, a phrase telling mankind that God changed His Holy Day from the 7th day to the first day of the week Contact, and tell them what and where you found this, in God's Word, and they will get their sponsors to give you your money!
    WHY, do this?

    Many people actually believe it's in the Bible; a scripture that tells us why most Christians keep Sunday as God' s Special  Day of rest. While, without actually seeing the text for themselves! They are still confident that it's in there, somewhere, because it's being so taught as Bible doctrine by most Christian Churches, today and for centuries past.
      In point of fact, there are numerous statements people believe are from the Bible, but are not! For example, "God helps those, who help themselves." Many believe they can find this well known saying in the Bible, but none can. It's from the Poor Richard's Almanac by Benjamin Franklin.
    Here's another, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness." Until, they actually try to find it for themselves, people are just as sure it IS in the Word of God. . . .somewhere!

    In this lesson, we're going to take on the challenge. We are going to search our Bibles, just for one text that tells us that Sunday, the First day of the week IS God's special day for all mankind to observe. If we can find it it would be worth a great deal of money, from rewards of $100.00 all the way up to $ 1 million, and nobody has yet to collect one thin cent, as of today 10/2013.

     So what we'll do in this lesson 11th, is too look at every text in the Bible that mentions Sunday the First Day of the week, as God's Special day the New Sabbath Day, or ANYTHING that tells us to meet or to observe it or that God changed His Holy Day to it.
    Fair enough? As there are only 9 (nine) total verses, that mention the First day of the week, Sunday!

1. IF. . .if God changed the Sabbath day, wouldn't it be in His Word?
     Amos 3:7. "Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."
Note: How many of YOU, think that IF God changed something so important as His Ten Commandments,, He would surely tell us about it, because, He tells us in His Word, that He does nothing unless He reveals it to His people. So IF. . . i f  a change did occur we should be able to find it in the Word of God, agree?

2. Where is the first text, speaking to the First day? Is Sunday, as a day ever written of?
    Genesis 1:5. "And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day."
Note: God set the days as beginning at sunset to sunset, but Rome changed it to midnight to midnight as we have it today, right?
Note 2: The old Mithra religion from Nimrod's days [ Genesis 10:8-9; 1 Chronicles 1:10; Micah 5:6} and the Tower of Babel, to Babylon' s Empire, and then the Persians named the days of the week after the planets. Zoroaster popularized Mithra in Persia, about 630 B.C. Since Mithra was pictured as a god of great courage, [ a marble statue of him killing a bull exists today] the Roman soldiers became worshipers of it. They also took their names of the days, but latter, the Teutonic-German tribes of Europe changed then to their gods.
Sun-god-  =  Sunday                           Woden -a Viking god = Wednesday
Moon- goddess = Monday                   Thor  -Viking god of war = Thursday
Frigg   German god? = Friday             Seturn- Saturday  [Saturn the planet AKA as Satan's world.]          
Tiu -god = Tuesday
    HOWEVER:  The Bible has named only three days of the week
(1) Preparation Day..  to do all meal preps and clean the house and yard for the Day of Rest-Sabbath.
(2), The seventh day The Sabbath Day, after the 6th day Friday sunset to sunset, remember?
(3) The First Day, of the week, being named after the Sun god! This day was chosen by Satan, as HIS counterfeit Sabbath Day, so when we get right down to it, who is worshiped on Sunday? NOT GOD!

     Genesis 2:1-3. "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made."

NOTICE:  At this point of time, {Gen.2:1-3] there was only two people on earth, Adam and Eve [Gen 1:26-27} , 2,000 years before the Bible speaks about Jews! The Sabbath was made for man...
Mark 2:27-28. "And he said unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath."  [Son of Man = Jesus Christ.]
    The Sabbath was established BEFORE sin entered in to the world. Therefore it was a perfect institution and not just something that God made as a remedy for sinful Jews!  SELAH = Think!

3. OK, where is the 2nd text that mentions the first day/Sunday?
       Matthew 28:1 "In the end of the Sabbath  as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher."
Note: What day had just ended?  Plus to which day's dawn was near?      {(j.B.) please take notice of this fact, in most cases Bible speaks to the FIRST DAY of the week, it is followed by the the Word Sabbath, for GOD knew men would THINK to change it {Daniel 7:25} ]

4 SO, where is the 3RD and 4th mentions of the First day of the week-Sun- day?
    Mark 16:2."And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulcher at the rising of the sun."
    Mark 16:9. "  Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils."
Note: These texts in Mark speaks to the same thing that Matthew wrote. They came to the Sepulcher on SUNDAY morning, but Jesus has already RISEN earlier that Sunday morning. Now they came there to do what?
     They did NOT have time Friday, the preparation day, to bet the spices, ointments and burial cloth, because the Sabbath's sunset was near, and they HAD to be home! Thus they were there Sunday to finish His burial, right? A Task they would not, nor could not do on the Sabbath, right? Thus they went early Sunday morning the first day of the week, yes or no?
     So IF. . . i f  this was to be the NEW SABBATH, this would have been the perfect place so speak to us about it, agree?  WAS IT?

5. Where is the 5th mention of "Sunday" in the Bible?
     Luke 23:54-56."And that day was the preparation, and the Sabbath drew on. And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulcher  and how his body was laid. And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment.   Luke 24:1-2  Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulcher  bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher. "
Note: These verses are clear, right? They tell us that Jesus died on the Cross that Friday, the Preparation Day, and then "RESTED" on the Sabbath in the tomb, and rose up early on the FIRST DAY, Sun-day, when the woman tried to finalize His burial!

6. Now where is the 6th mention?
     John 20:1  "The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulcher."
Note: This tells us simply that Mary Magdalene the tomb early Sunday morning and found it empty! In VS. 16 Jesus revealed Himself to her, letting her know that He had risen. Nothing in this text suggests that Sunday, the first day of the week is now the new Sabbath now is there?

7. Where is the 7th mention?
    John 20:19 "Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you."
Note: Many many people, even the ones behind the Pulpits, use this verse to show, "They had Church here!" Thus this shows the Bible's agreements with Sunday worship services. BUT DOES IT?  Jesus did indeed rise on  the First day of the week, but as His custom was... Luke 4:16 "And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read."
    Were they gathered to celebrate Christ' s resurrection? N O! They were in hiding from the Jews and their Priests, they feared they were to be next on the Crosses!

    Romans 6:4 "Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life."
note: It is OK, for YOU to ask, why,  "WHY did the Church of Rome change the worship days to Sundays from the Sabbath? PLUS why do they no longer baptize by submersion but by the SPRINKLING a few drops of water on the heads, of even new born babe's who have not a clue? When all must know the full meaning of a Baptism, before they hit the water, which is an action in honor of His life, death and Resurrection! So that we also can walk in the newness of life, the sinful old us, having "died" in the watery grave!

8. Then what about the 8th mention?
    Acts 20:7 "And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight"
NOTE: YES, there was a meeting, and YES Paul did indeed preach, and they broke bread.
       Please take notice of the time of day, and remember when a day began and ends Biblically! The day begins at sunset and ends at sunset the next day, so this was already Sunday morning when they gathered! [ Leviticus 23:32-Mark 1:32 even to even (evening) . In our language we'd call this meeting began Saturday evening and Paul was still going to day=break Sunday morning.

The Good News Translation: "On Saturday evening we gathered for the fellowship meal"
The New English Bible: "On the Saturday night in our assembly"

    The Bible, KJB, goes on to tell about Paul's custom to meet on the Sabbath Day [Acts 17:2] They then came together that evening for a farewell meal. Paul was going to leave the next day so he spoke until midnight. That's when a boy named Eutychus fell asleep and fell from the 3rd floor to his death. Paul prayed for Eutychus and God raised him from the dead., to life. Paul then continued on to daybreak Sunday and then said his good byes. Now is in fact the First day Sunday was T H E Sabbath, why on earth would the devout Paul begin a 20 mile walk on the Day of rest?
   I hope that you see nothing here, in your Bible, to make you think that the Sabbath are now on Sundays!
   BUT. . .but, do not the words "Breaking Bread" mean this was a Communion Service?
    Luke 22:19 "And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me." {This was a Thursday evening !}
    Acts 2:46 " And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,"
Note: Obviously they did not hold communion nor held any service,going house to house agree?

9. So, where is the last text found in the Bible speaking to Sunday?
    1 Corinthians 16:2 "Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come."
Note; Many try to show this to be an "Offering collection" during worship on Sunday, but is it?
   If you read the text, { not by what YOU believe or that which you may have been taught] but read what is there. You'll find that Paul was writing to the Corinthian Church members asking them to set aside a little money at the beginning of the week, so that he could take it to their brethren in Jerusalem which was in a famine time. They were to "Store up at home" so it would be ready for him, when he got there.

New King James: "lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper"
New American Standard " put aside and save"

                         SORRY, but that's all from the King James Bible.

Harold Lindsell [Editor] Christian Today Nov.5. 1976. " There is nothing in Scripture that requires us to keep Sunday rather than Saturday as a holy day."

Dr. E. T. Hiscox, author of the "Baptist Manual ."There is no scriptural evidence of the change of the Sabbath institution from the seventh to the first day day of the week." 

10. So WHY? Why do most observe Sunday in place of Saturday's Sabbaths?
    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."
Note: Just as the Bible, via John, revealed this fact over 2,000 years ago, it is still factual today, agree?

The Roman Church leaders, are not at least bashful about declaring they made this change, in fact one of their own even placed a $1,000.00 of his own money on this premise: " I have repeatedly offered $1,000 to anyone who can prove to me from the Bible alone, that I am bound to keep Sunday holy. There is no such law in the Bible. It is law of the Holy Catholic Church alone... and LO! The entire civilized world bows down in reverent obedience to the command of the Holy Roman Catholic Church!"
Priest Thomas Enright, C.SS.R. American Sentinel Journal June 1893 ,p. 173.[read Rev.13:3]

11. If, however you are looking for a reason to the why? Look at Daniel.
      Daniel 7:24-26  "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. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end."

Note: IF you, are looking for a reason for the why, the above verse is as good as it gets in His word, but for one other location:

2 Thessalonians 2:2-5  "That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? "  
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 " Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

       When was the first such law, and what did it say?
    The first RECORDED law for Sun day worship was by the Roman Emperor Constantine in March 7th 321 A.D. after he had his "Supposed conversion to Christianity. [(j.b) he was also the High Priest of Mithra, a sun-worshiping Pagan Religion, his coins showed both the Cross his face and the sun god on the obverse side]
HIS LAW: "Let all the judges ad towns people and the occupation of all trades rest on the venerable day of the sun." {in Latin Dies Solis}   Please know when this man moved to his new capital Constantinople [Istanbul Turkey] in 331 A.D. he gave his throne, and symbols of office and power to the then Bishop of the the church in Rome, It's leaders, the Popes, have held total power from that point to 1798 when Napoleon wanted to crown himself Emperor he had to remove the Pope which he did via General Berteir. This was.....

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."  [{j.b) this healing was not until 1929's Lateran Treaty]

12. What should humans do when men's laws conflicts with God's ?
      Acts 5:29. " Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men."
Note: The easy answer to this question is with another question: "Who is able to save YOU for eternal life, man or God?"

L.10 "Supplement" ROME'S CHALLENGE.

                                       "SUNDAY OBSERVANCE."

    OR: "WHY do you Protestants keep SUNDAY"?

The Catholic Record, London, Ontario, Sept. 1, 1923. 
      "Sunday is our mark of authority..... The church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact."

Priest Brady, in an address reported in the Elizabeth, N.J. NEWS on March 18, 1903.
     "It is well to remind the Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists, and all other Christians, that the Bible does not support them anywhere in their observance of Sunday. Sunday is an institution of the Roman Catholic Church, and those who observe the day observe a commandment of the Catholic Church."

Our Sunday Visitor, Feb. 5. 1950.
    "Protestants... accept Sunday rather than Saturday as the day of Public Worship after the Catholic Church made the change....But the Protestant mind does not seem to realize observing Sunday, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the Church, the Pope."

This Rock, The Magazine of Catholic Apologetic s and Evangelization, p. 8, June 1997.
     "Of course these two old quotes are exactly correct. The Catholic Church designated Sunday as the day of corporate worship and gets the full credit---- or blame---for the change."

Rev. Peter Geiermann C.SS.R., The Coverts Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, p. 50.
    Which is the Sabbath day? Saturday is the Sabbath day. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday? We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday."

Controversial Catechisms  Steven Keenan, New Addition, Revised by Rev. George Cormack, Published in London by BURNS and OATS, Limited--New York, Cincinnati, Chicago: Benzinger Brothers, 1896, pp. 6-7.
   "Must not a sensible Protestant doubt seriously, when he or she finds that even the Bible is not followed by their coreligionists? Surely, when they see them baptize infants, and abrogate the Sabbath, and observe Sunday for which there is no Scriptural authority: when they find them neglecting to wash one an other's feet, which  is expressly commanded, and eat blood and things strangles, which are expressly prohibited in Scripture. They must doubt, if they think at all... Should not the Protestant doubt when they find that they themselves holds traditions as a guide?
     Yes, if they would but reflect that they have nothing but Catholic Traditions for keeping Sunday holy."

The Catholic Encyclopedia. "Commandments of God". Vol. IV. 1908. Robert Appleton Company.
      "The Church, on the other hand, after changing the day of rest from the Jewish Sabbath (j.b. Adam and Eve were NOT Jews, this name did not appear until the Book of Ester, nearly 2,000 after Creation, thus it was only a human justification attempt!) or the seventh day of the week, to be made the Third [sic] Commandment refer to Sunday as the day to be kept holy as the Lord's day. The Council of Trent condemns those who deny that the Ten Commandments  are binding on Christians. .{(j.b.) Read Genesis 2:1-3 where God created the Sabbath for mankind, Sabbath means REST!]

NOTE (j.b.) God's Royal LAWS are binding as  this says, so why did they change them? They dropped the 2nd law, about images, carvings, cut more than 1/2 of all the words from the the TEN, and then split # 10 into two parts to still have 10!  Compare your Catechism Commandments to Exodus 20:1-17 IF YOU DARE!  Then read Revelation 18:4 and THINK!  [God gives 10 gives his laws in volumes of books?]

The Catholic Universe Bulletin,  , Aug. 14. 1942. 
     "The [Roman Catholic]  Church changed   to Sunday by right of the divine, infallible authority given to her by her founder, Jesus Christ. The Protestant claiming the Bible to be the only guide of faith has no warrant for observing Sunday. In this matter the Seventh day Adventist is the only consistent Protestant." 

NOTE: Please know that this Church did not exist as a Christian Church until after Constantine relinquished his power over Western Roman Empire in 331 A.D. Our Lord and Savior had already ascended to Heaven, nearly 200 years before they became, so-called,"Christian."

"The Catholic Virginian." "To Tell You The Truth," Vol. 22, #49. (Oct. 3, 1947).
     "All of us believe many things in regard to religion that we do not find in the Bible. For example, nowhere in the Bible do we find that Christ or the Apostles ordered the Sabbath to be changed from Saturday to Sunday. We have the commandment of God given to Moses to keep holy the Sabbath Day, that is the seventh day of the week, Saturday. Today most Christians keep Sunday because it has been revealed to us by the Church outside the Bible."....{ (j.b.) Wow!, God gave all humanity just 10 Laws, but this system needs 22 volumes or more for their laws?]

The Faith of Our Fathers. James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore, 88th edition, p.89 Originally published in 1876.
     " may read from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance pf Saturday, a day which we never sanctify."

The Catholic Record. September, 1, 1923.
     "Deny the authority of the Church and you have no adequate or reasonable explanation or justification for the substitution of Sunday for Saturday in the Third--Protestant Fourth- Commandment of God...[ (j.b.) in the Books of Catechism the 2nd Commandment has been removed and the 10th split into 2 parts]  The Church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact. { (j.b.) since when do two wrongs make one right?]

"Sentinel." Saint Catherine Catholic Church, Algonac Michigan, May 12, 1995.
    "Perhaps the boldest thing, the most revolutionary change the Church ever did, happened in the first century. The holy day, the Sabbath, was changed from Saturday to Sunday, 'The Day of the Lord', not from any directions noted in Scriptures, but from the Church's sense of its own power.
     The day of resurrection, the day of the Pentecost, fifty days later, came the first day of the week. So this would be the new Sabbath. People who think that the Scriptures should be the sole authority, should logically become Seventh day Adventists,; and keep Sabbath holy."

There are many more, but you get the picture,I hope?

     SORRY, IT IS N O T  a micro-chip nor a tattoo!

     The first mention of a "Mark" is right near the beginning of God's Word! Most know the story of Cain and Able, who was the older twin, were asked to provide a sacrifice, as an act of worship. They were told what kind of sacrifice and just how to offer it. They were both to bring a lamb and offer it as a burnt sacrifice upon an alter.
    Well Able, the younger brother, did as God wanted, but Cain, being the farmer, decided to bring to bring that which he had grown and produced himself.
    Abel must have tried to explain to him that God word was very specific, requiring a lamb and not produce. Cain seemingly did not want to heat this, and becoming very angry took up a stone and killed him.
     The Bible tells us in Genesis 4th chapter, that Cain was then curses and that God placed a "Mark" on him. We are NOT told what kind of mark he received, but it was a "sign" to others 'Lest any finding him should kill him, VS15. ."  In VS12, shows that Cain will no longer be able to grow anything  for his food.
    This story will show YOU, dear reader, that any worship one gives unto God, must be as HE shown us in His Word, or it and us are rejected agree?   Look at this verse.... and YOU judge!
       Matthew 23:35 . "That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar
This story about Cain and Able.story is ALL about Worship, and worship in the manner God has set before us, would YOU dear reader, agree with this assessment? "
    The Book of Revelation tells us that at the time of the end, there will be another mark given to ALL those who choose to obey the Commandments of men, rather than those of God's! It speaks that those who obey God' s laws, will be persecuted by those people who obey the laws of men, because they remain loyal to God! At first they will be urged to accept this mark of the Beast system, the M.O.B. and latter if refused will be faced with the MOB. of those who have the Mark of the Beast, and are loyal to the man made Commandment!
   So exactly what is this MARK?   Let's see what the Word tells all, OK?

1. Where else in the Bible is The Beast of Revelation 13 mentioned? Is he called by another name?
    Daniel 7:3. "And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. "
    Daniel 7:8. "I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things."

Note: I(n Revelation, there is a Beast, coming up from the sea, having ten horns, world-wide influence, and led by a man. In Daniel 7, there are four beasts coming from the sea. The 4th Beast has 10 horns and devours the whole earth. From among his horns comes a little horn [a earthly power] with eyes of a man. The Beast is Revelation and the Little Horn of Daniel have the same description so far!

2. What other qualities do The Beast and The Little Horn share?
    Daniel 7:25. "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."
Note:The Beast and the Little Horn are one of the same system, as both are guilty of Blasphemy, as noted in Lesson 9.(*) Both rule the same 42 months- (*), both wears out [persecutes God's saints] they share the qualities!

                         BIBLICAL MEANING OF "A TIME".
    A time equals a year. A times equals two years, and the dividing of time equals half a year. See Daniel 4:16,23,32,: 7:25, based on Ezekiel 4:16 and Numbers 14:34 one day  = one year. Therefore, a time, times, and half time means 3.5 years, or 1260 day/years. as the Bible's months are 12 x 30 days being one year of 3260 days.

3. Where do we see The Little Horn enforcing a mark?
    Daniel 7:25. "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."
    Revelation 13:15-16. "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.  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:"

NOTE: What is this IMAGE?   IT'S the man-made Commandments, the FIRST DAY WORSHIP, that most Christains, although "UN LEARNED" follow this systems laws. This is THEIR IMAGE, THEIR MARK if you will. Rememeber God' s Word said "Think to change times and laws? Well if you look at any Covert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, you'll find that God's 2 law [Exodus 20-1-17} has been removed, the 4th [their 3rd] has been greatly reduced, as has ll 10] and as all know about the 10 Laws, they SPLIT the 10th into two parts!

    In Rev. Peter Gelermann C.SS.R. "The Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, P.50 we read:
"Question: 'Which day is the Sabbath?' "
"Answer: ' Saturday is the Sabbath day.' "
"Question: ' We do we observe Sunday instead of the Saturday?' "
"Answer: ' We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday. ' "

NOTE: This system, this Little horn claims that she has the power to change the sabbath from The Sabbath day to Sunday, the first day of the week! Yet for man/men to assume the role and power of God is Blasphemy against GOD! 
  John 10:33.. "The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. "

NOTE: (J.B.) How can it be more plain, that Sunday worship is of man only. thus PAGAN SUN worship holdover?  Yet is this not what Satan is so very good at, deceiving mankind, to move away from the Christ Jesus his enemy?  SELAH...{.chew in this for a while and think!}  ARE YOU. . . .beginning to see, that near the end, there shall be but two camps of people? (1) Those that obey GOD and (2) the rest that obey men? 
QUESTION "Who is able to save YOU for the eternity? God or men? All must choose, even those who have not made their choice, have chosen to obey men and thus Satan!

5. Why do Protestants observe Sunday in place of the Saturday the 7th Day Sabbath of the Bible?
    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." [emphasis mine].
Note: All the world wonders, read ---follows after the Catholic Church in observing Sunday. Even the Atheistic Communists take Sunday of, thus a day of rest. By the way the Greek word for Sabbath Sabtismo actually means rest, as it does in the Hebrew!
    It is for this very reason they claim they are in the right, because All Christians follow their law, thus paying tribute to the Romish Church!   The Catechism continues....

     From the Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, p.50.

"Q: 'Have you any other way of proving that the Church has the power to institute festivals of precept?
"A; 'Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her-- she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the seventh day; for which there is no Scripture authority.

Note (J.B.) I personally thank them for their open honesty, but to me it shows an arrogance that is matched only by Satan himself!  How say YOU?

6. What should we do when man's laws conflict with God' s laws?
     Acts 5:29. "Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.?
    Mark 7:7. "Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. "
Note: Even under force, we must obey GOD.  Please know, that Christ has the power over death, it is HE who will resurrect the just and latter the unjust! But one who seeks to save their life, by obeying men, shall be "Blotted Out" [as if never even existed] by being cast into the Lake of Fire at the 2nd Resurrection!  see.....

Mark 8:35. "For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it."


BAPTISTS: [not 7th Day Baptists] "..the Sabbath...was not Sunday  There is no Scriptural evidence for the change of the Sabbath institution from the seventh to the first day if the week " Dr. E. T. Hiscox author of the "Baptist Manual".

AMERICAN CONGREGATIONALIST: "The current notion that Christ and His apostles substituted the first day for the seventh day is absolutely without any authority in the New Testament."  Dr. Lyman Abbot.

METHODIST; "It is true there is no positive command for infant baptism. Nor is there any for keeping the first day of the week,. Many believe that Christ changed the Sabbath. But from His own words we see that He came for no such purpose. Those who believe that Jesus changed the Sabbath base it only on a supposition." Amos Binney

PRESBYTERIAN: There is... no hint in the New Testament about abstaining from work on Sunday. Canon Eyton.

THE WATCHMAN BAPTIST: " The Scriptures nowhere call the first day of the week the Sabbath. 

7. Is the Mark of the Beast a literal mark or a branding?
    Deuteronomy 6:6-8. "And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.  And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes."

Frontlets--- Hewbrew- Towphaphah-- to-faw-faw. to bind; a filler for the forehead, your frontal lobe of one brain. in other "Knowledge".
Note: Revelation 13 says that mark of the Beast would be in the right hand or in the forehead. The right hand is symbolic of actions or deeds in support of {Ecclesiastes 9:10, Isaiah 59:6]. The forehead represents the thoughts, the minds, the heart, or the desires one a person. The Bible says God' s Words will be in the hearts.... From the heart, there will be a sing [of work for and or in support of] via actions and as frontlets between the eyes [your minds]. Between the eyes is one mind/forehead, where our minds are [Exodus 13:16 and Deuteronomy 11:18]

8. What does the Papacy claim as "Their Mark of Authority"?
    Revelation 13:15. "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."

Note: We MUST know and accept, that from about A.D.100, Roman pagan governors, used force in attempt to have all Christians and Jews, at that time forwards, to worship the Caesars! When in 331 A.D, as Constantine gave the Roman Church Bishop his seat of power and office, this continued but with a twist of "Worship as I say,or die!" Please KNOW their doctrine holds that the Papacy is and has the ultimate say of what is heresy, and who is a heretic, and that they claim to hold the power to kill all heretics! {To prevent the spread of this disease?}
    Therefor,  also in the latter days, the ISSUE IS WORSHIP,  forced worship on pain of prison or death. Note at what they say:

     "Sunday [worship] is OUR MARK of authority... The Church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact." THE CATHOLIC RECORD, LONDON ONTARIO CANADA. SEPTEMBER 1, 1923.

"Perhaps the boldest thing... the Church ever did, happened in the first [actually officially in 3rd] century. The Holy day, the Sabbath, was changed from Saturday to Sunday. "The Day of the Lord" was chosen, not from any directions noted in the Scriptures, but from the church's sense of its own power.              {OUR MARK OF AUTHORITY]... People who think that he Scriptures should be the sole authority, should logically become Seventh day Adventist, and keep Saturday holy." 
Sentinel, Saint Catherine Catholic Church, Algonac, Michigan, May 21, 1995.

(j.b.) I'll say it again, I give them my thanks for their honesty!

9. Does the Beast, or the Papacy, receive help to enforce his Mark?
     Revelation 13:1. " And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."
      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."

NOTE: This new Beast, comes out of the earth. If the sea [as in a sea of faces] represents a populated region Revelation 17:15. "And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues."--- then the earth represents an unpopulated region. He also has a lamb like, or Christian like features,. He arises just after the deadly wound for the first beast is inflicted in 1798 {see V.10] . What powerful nation arose after 1798, from a thinly populated nation, and that had Christian principles from its start? Yes, the U.S.of A.. But this beast changes from being as a lamb, to speaking like the dragon. He eventually causes, or forces by Federal Law, the earth to worship the first Beast, "Sunday Worship Laws,". This will force many, to keep from prison or death, to give up the principles of Religious Freedom and support the Papacy in forcing their religious laws, upon all and force Sunday Worship, the worship of the Sun god!
(j.b.) Satan gives not one whit, about which day YOU and   I worship God as long as it's not on GOD' s Holy Day the Seventh day Sabbath!

   (j.b.)  WHY?  
Well, ANYONE can claim to worship ANYTHING, on ANY DAY but note this matter of the 4th Commandment!
     Exodus 20:11. "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."

BY human worship on the SEVENTH DAY, GOD' s HOLY SABBATH, we actually acknowledge that GOD is the Creator, thus worship is relegated to GOD only! Worship ANY OTHER DAY, and whom do YOU worship. . . . .? {Men have in past made and called gods  many things.} Who but Satan, AND his human allies, does man worship on any day other than the ONE GOD selected?  THINK ------SELAH!

10. What does the 2nd Beast (USA) do to help the 1st Beast?
    Revelation 13:15-16. "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.  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:"
Note: The 2nd Beast causes the earth to worship by saying they should make an image  to the first beast [Papacy]. The image in Daniel was a likeness of the king they were forced, under a penalty of being burned alive in a fiery furnace, in violation of God's law. Likewise, this forced worship of the Beast's image will also violate God's laws regrading the 7th day Sabbath's worship.    THIS SHALL BE THE M.OB. THE MARK OF THE BEST!

11. How will the 2nd Beast help enforce the this Mark?
     Revelation 13:15. "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."
     Revelation 13:16. "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:"

NOTE: A,nation, any nation speaks to the people by the Laws it enacts ts and enforces agree? Thus  a nation causes by enforcing those laws. The Bible speaks saying "he causes all to receive a mark. What does the Universal-Catholic Church claim as its MARK?  [Sunday worship]   (j.b.)That's what Revelation 13 to 18 is ALL about, WORSHIP either GOD's way or the ways of man!

Office of Cardinal Gibbons, through Chancellor C.F. Thomas, Nov 11. 1895.  "Of course the 
Catholic Church claims the change was her act... and the mark of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters."

12. Does anyone or anybody have this mark. . .NOW?
      Revelation 13:17. "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."
NOTE: NO! This Sunday?Sabbath issue will divide the whole of earth peoples into two camps.: Those who follow and keep the Commandments of God, and whop keep the law of man!
      John 14:15. "If ye love me, keep my commandments." [(j.b.) these are the words of Christ!]
No, none will have the mark of the beast until it is ENFORCED by law or economic sanctions. The Bible is plain, one MUST have this Mark of the Beast to be able to buy or sell anything!
   Therefore each must choose: God's True Sabbath, or Satan's counterfeit one on Sunday? For the latter is man's substitute for the Sabbath, which they call the  Biblically  wrong,  the Lord's  Day

Here are just a few verses that have the Lord's day within them, and it never touches any day but the Seventh day Sabbath! Gen2:4. Exo 20:10. 31:15,17,35:2; Lev, 23:3 Deut 5:14,10:4,18:16. Jos 4:14
Matthew 12:8  "For the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day."
Revelation 1:10  "I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,"  (j.b) many teach this was Sunday the first day of the week but what does it actually say? In the Lord's Day, now read Matt above again, and know this IS the Bible's Sabbath the 7th day day Friday sunset to Saturday' s sunset! How can man think he can change that which is written in stone, by GOD Himself? What size of an ego does this require?

13. What are the consequences of choosing this Mark? Or what's the cost?
    Revelation 14:9-10. "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:"

Note: Ones who have chosen to accept the mark, to be able to buy and sell, will have chosen to live without God. Thus, as HE is the very source of all life, they shall be cast into the Lake of Fire's one time use, and be turned to ashes.....Revelation 20:14-15. "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
Malachi 4:3. "And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts."

Note: OUR SUNDAY VISITOR, CATHOLIC WEEKLY FEB. 5. 1950. "THE Protestant mind doesn't realize that in ...observing Sunday... they are accepting the authority of the Pope." 

14. What will God's saints do in this situation?
      Revelation 14:12. "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus."

There shall be a small group, who will trust in Christ, to feed to water to protect them and remain loyal in the last days even unto death because....  Luke 9:24  "For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it."

So dear reader, where do YOU place your trust, in our Creator GOD, who has the might and the will to save you, or trust man, who can't even save self?
