As Seventh-day Adventists, we understand that a National Sunday Law is coming. How will it be implemented? What should we expect? In this presentation, we will see that there are four phases or stages to the Sunday Law culminating with the death decree for God's people who are faithful and coinciding with the close of human probation.

Greetings again and welcome to par 3 in our oneness day events explained series here on our viewers My name is Norman McNulty and I'm so glad that you have chosen to join me for this study and I hope that you have been blessed and challenged as we've been going through these topics part one we talked about the trigger for in time events and we saw that the national son in law last week we looked at the abomination of desolation. How that develops through Scripture culminating with a national The son in law of the end of time today we're going to look at the 4 stages of a Sunday loss and I'm looking forward to going through that before we do that though we are going to answer a few questions and we've had some more good question come in this week and just as a reminder here on the screen you can see that you can send and questions through the e-mail on the screen which is contact audio verse or g. So I encourage you to keep sending the questions in and we had some more good questions come in and so I'm going to address some of them now this question is from Terri and her question is will the shaken take place after the Sunday law is a place and what I would say to that is that. Bible the Bible makes it very clear that everything that can be shaken will be shaken and clearly from the Sunday law is passed that will be the final shaking about him to them but there is a shaking taking place even in the church as people to debate things such as creation and evolution whether in our own way it has authoritative validity in the church all of those things are shaking out that we in the tears even now and then the final harvest will come together once the sun the law comes together so that's an excellent question Terry also mentions that there is a statement of great controversy page $589.00 talks about how Satan will appear as a great physician who can heal all of our maladies but he will bring disease and disaster until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation and she was wondering if hoovered 19 is phase one of the diseases he will bring to per se to persuade men we are displeasing to happen and I think that's a good fobbing clearly covert 19 this whole pandemic is a sign of the coming of Jesus and if it doesn't get better and if more unrest takes place that can certainly be a fulfillment if things continue to escalate it would be something that could lead to a Sunday a lot of time will tell an excellent question. I got another question from Kylie and she. Asked the question can you please address Satan's counterfeit appearing of Jesus in terms of what how when and where and why we are going to address that in this presentation and then. The question of us could you please come to this one white quote that appears to be a dual prophecy attributing Satan and the beast power the 1st piece of Revelation 13 ruling for 40 humans in the future and before I read the statement I will mention the this is a favorite quote of those who like to make a dual applications and in time prophecy last week we talked about the troll 903035 even the 1260 and how some try to make a deal application for those the statement is found in manuscript 153-1902 you can also find it in manuscript releases volume 19. Page $280.00 and the statement says in the last days Satan will appear as an angel of light was great power and heavenly glory it claimed to be the Lord of the whole earth he will declare the Sabbath has been changed from the 7th to the 1st day of the week and as Lord of the 1st day that week he will present this freeze with as its us to him or as a test of loyalty to him then will take the final 4th then will take place the final fulfillment other revelators prophecy now. Ellen White says once Satan appears you're going to see the final fulfillment of the prophecy of Revelation 13 and then. Element quotes verses for $300.00 letters basically verses 4 through the end of the chapter known mentioned. Leave as you sure this what you just quoted verses 4 and 5. And you did mention that the whole chapter is quote a bit it's not just the verses $4.00 and $5.00 the only courts are that's the entire chapter and verse for talks about how the dragon is worshiped as well as the be so Satan will be worshiped that he's personating Christ an element of then so is that the final fulfillment of this prophecy will take place but here is what we can say if you want to say that there is a fire in a fulfillment. Of this prophecy what will be fulfilled with the final fulfillment is that which has not yet been fulfilled in the chapter in that would be. The death the tree and the whole fulfillment of Revelation 13 but what we're going to see in our study this week is that there is as surely 4 stages choose a Sunday law that's what this purpose of the study is and that Satan personating Christ happens in the last stage of the Sunday law so in fact. The image of the beast has already been formed when same person it's Christ it's not as if he comes on to the scene and nationally to start a sinner like he comes on at the very end and so much of Revelation 13 will have already been fulfilled and so I want to as the final fulfillment of Revelation 13 takes place once a person it's Christ but by then you will have already seen the image to the beast formula already seen the restriction of not being able to buy and sell and so this is leading up to the death to create one and save impersonates Christ so is there a 42 month literal Refel film and. At that point no there is not relevant to and we. Read the statement from last week this is life events page 36 our position has been one of waiting and watching with no time proclamation to intervene between the close of the prophetic periods in 844 and the time of the Lord's coming so there's not 42 months of literal time between the time the same person it's Christ chewed the 2nd coming that would be a time prophecy in elem why it is clear on that Furthermore again. By the time Satan comes impersonates Christ the Son The law has already been in gear and now we're just waiting for the death decree which lays the close of probation and we'll get into that so don't be confused by some of these fanciful interpretations that are out there. Another question was you mention such and she in response to one of the questions that in your understanding the judgment of the living begins when the Sunday law is passed by implication then would you disagree with the belief by some of the churches that probation closes for 7th day out and is on the Sunday laws introduced Yes I do not believe that probation closes for 7th Day Adventists when the Sunday law passes there is one cause of probation and that's when Michael stands up and it's up to 12 years one and Revelation 22 verse 11 where we see he that is I'm just let him be and just that and so forth however the opportunity for preparation ends when the sun the law passes there's the wiser engines there's the full the surgeons of those are ready to go forth to meet the bridegroom but only after they go forth to me and wide awake as a people only in a few verses later does the bridegroom appear and they that are ready to go with him into the marriage and the door shut so there's a period of time between when the Sunday law 1st starts at the midnight cry to when the door of probation close and I don't believe the probation closes at the Sunday law now I do want to mention there was a question that came in from an individual who wanted to know how to convince a family member to move to the country that came in a couple of weeks ago I will get to that and when we get to the little time of trouble in country living and things of that nature so I'm not ignoring that question but will address the point. So I'm at this point I'm going to just mention one other thing I want to remind you if you haven't gotten a copy of my book already I would encourage you to check out my book on Daniel that you can get from around the publications again this is a great time to be studying Bible prophecy This makes prophecy practical but it goes through all of the theory so if you have a chance check that out as well. And how we're going to see and how we're going to get to our study for today someone asked the Lord to be with us as we go through this presentation so that things will be clear so let's just pray Lord I pray that as we go through this presentation on the 4 stages of the sun a lot of the things will be clear to us that we would understand and I pray that we would be found and ready when you come and. Give us clarity and understanding and pray in Jesus name so the title for this presentation is 4 stages of the Sunday law you see the picture there of the president of the United States shaking the hand of the pope I'm not picking on this particular president I've shared slides of the previous presidents and similar pictures in the similar presentations in the past as just happens to be our current president and I believe that any United States president could be the president that could be the one to process some of the law but I'm not singling out one president particularly I'm not here to shoot be political but this is just the fact that the United States of America will work closely with the papacy to bring about a Sunday law so we're going to look at the 4 stages of the Sunday law and just as an overview of where we're headed we're going to see that in the 1st stage it's going to be a refrain from working on Sunday and then as it progresses it will be honoring Sunday but it is still unable to worship on the Sabbath then it progresses to you cannot worship on Sabbath only on Sunday find that imprisonment or impose You can't buy or so finally the Stage 4 is the death penalty those who worship Sabbath in this regard Sunday this is certainly worth a further discussion and to see how it all plays out and. Sometimes I find that out of this kind of have this idea that when the sun they walk comes and bang everything is over in the streets of it within a few weeks the whole world comes to an end it's not going to be a few weeks but there's not a set time that we can ascribe to it that it's going to take a little bit of time for everything to play out now we saw on our 1st presentation that yes the final movements will be rapid one so it's not going to take forever either. But it's going to be more than a few days or a few weeks so there are some stages to the Sunday law so let's look at that. Kind of or see Page 6 o 3 and Ellen why is making reference to Revelation 18 and a lot of crime this is from the chapters final warning she says I saw another and she's quoting revelation 18 I thought of angels come down from heaven having great power in the earth was lighted with His glory and he cried mightily with a strong voice saying Babylon the Great is fallen as follows become the habitation of devils and the whole of every file spirit and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird and I heard another voice from heaven saying come out of her my people that you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues the call goes on to say this Scripture points for to a time when the announcement of the follow Babylon is made by the 2nd angel of Revelation 14 Rizzi it is to be repeated with the additional mention of the corruptions which have been entering the various organizations that constitute Babylon since the message was 1st given in the summer of 1844 a terrible condition of the religious world is here described in defiance of the warnings which God has given they will continue to trample upon one of the precepts of the death Deca log until they are led to persecute those who hold that sacred So here we see that part of this lot of private message is. Pointing out one of the precepts of the duct the law has been trampled on of the 4th Commandment that is the Sabbath and this will lead to persecution of those who hold that sacred. Now we've read this statement already in a previous presentation sign of the Times June 12893 where Ellen want to again of course revelation 18 No I'm not going to read this whole screen here because we just read basically the same thing. Where this time she brings in the verse and verse 5 was she says her sins are reached into heaven and God hath remembered her inequities and in the statement as we've read before I don't want to as wonder her sins region to heaven when the law of God is finally made void by legislation then the extremity of God's people as is his opportunity to show who is the governor of heaven and earth so babble on sins reach heaven at the Sunday law. And there's going to be some stages to that son in law but this is the prophetic catalyst that wakes up asleep in the church and we talked about an hour for his presentation now when the sleeping church wakes up at the midnight Chris we talked about in the 1st presentation the wise virgins receive the outpouring of the Latter Rain to give a loud cry message and notice the statement from elementary conversely page 6 o 5 here 2 for part of this of those who for isn't it the truth is the 3rd angel's message have often been regarded as mere alarmists there are predictions that religious intolerance will gain control in the United States that church and state would unite to persecute those who keep the commandments of God have been pronounced groundless and absurd it has been confidently declared that this land could never become other than what it has been the defender of religious freedom but as the question of enforcing Sunday observance is widely agitated the event so long doubted and disbelieved is seen to be approaching and the 3rd message will produce an effect which it could not have had before now I have to say this is a 7th Avenue and I can't tell you how many times I've heard other admin us scoff at the idea of a summit law and when I was in my medical training and residency I was sitting on call when evening with a group of fellow residents who were laughing at the idea that a Sunday law would happen someday and so this Sunday a law will empower the church to give a loud cry message because it's been so long doubt and disbelieve there's many SCAF ORs in the church even today who question whether this will really ever take place but it will happen and when it does it will produce an effect of the 3rd in his message that we have not yet seen. Now let's look at stage one of the Sunday law so as the sun they will begins to be agitated widely it's going to start off with an encouragement to refrain from working on Sunday a day of rest will be a sugar edged and this will be an opportunity for us as God's people to engage in missionary labor now I'm going to talk about this next week in our presentation on the New World Order about the grains project I'm just going to give you a bit of a preview here on their Web site if you go to Green Sabath project God and that. They say one day every week do nothing take a weekly day of rest make it a real Sabbath for you Firth don't drive don't shop don't be built now again I'm not saying this is a fulfillment of stage one of the sun it was not I'm just saying that these sentiments are starting to gather steam in certain corners of the earth on a way that we have not seen before so pay attention Jesus coming and the things we have always said a sudden tablets are going to happen and these are even secularists these are environmentalist these aren't even evangelical Christians in the us a surly that are agitating this idea. So notice well and why it says about this stage one where we will be encouraged to take a day of rest for our own good and to refrain from working this is testimony as well and I'm page 280 she says there brother I will try to answer your question as to what you should do in the case of Sunday was being enforced the light given me by the Lord at a time when we were expecting just such a crisis as you seem to be approaching was that when the people were moved by the power from beneath you and for Sunday observance 7th atmosphere to show otherwise the my refraining from their ordinary work on that day devoting it to missionary after another words don't make a big think about stopping from doing your business word. She goes on to say to defy the Sunday laws will but strengthen in their persecution the religious zealots who are seeking to enforce them given no occasion to call you a law breaker is a failure left to reign upon men who fear and neither God nor man the running up will soon lose its novelty for them and they will see that it is not consistent nor convenient for them to be strict in regard to the observance of Sunday keep right on with your missionary work with your Bibles in your hands in the enemy will see that he is worse that his own cause one does not receive the mark of the beast because he shows that he realizes the wisdom of keeping the peace by refraining from work that gives offense during at the same time a work of the highest importance and that of us and refraining from war is not receiving the mark of the beast what will cost the teeth the mark of the beast is actually worshipping on the day prescribe but refraining from work is actually an opportunity for us to go out and do missionary work to do door to work door work as I want so servants of God with their faces lighted up will hasten from place to place to give the message that there will be a time to give the message of refraining from labor isn't receiving the mark of the beast receiving the mark of the beast will be worshipping on that day so. There is. Another statement here that from testimonies on the volume on page $232.00 when we devote Sunday to missionary work the whip will be taken out of the hands of the arbitraries all its who would be well pleased to humiliate some of the add in us when they see that we employ ourselves on Sunday of visiting the people and opening the Scriptures to them they will know that a disease useless for them to try to hinder our work by making Sunday last and then she says make it on the next page make no demonstration on Sunday in defiance of the law and now you know there are some things happening right now in this in this world where there are some just causes that are big crossed has that for them again as I said before we are not advocating for writing or leading But Ellen wise as on the Sunday welcomes that's not a time to make a demonstration in defiance of the law go out and preach the 3rd Age as a message and so she goes on to say we can use Sunday as a day in which to carry forward work that would tell on the side of Christ we are to do our best working with all meek as in lowliness. Now I'm not going to take the time to read all of these statements and counsels the parents teachers and students page $551.00 about is mit I refer you to that quote and she is talking teachers employ Sunday and doing missionary work for a job so again during phase one when we are told to refrain from work this is a time where we can refrain from working but to do missionary labors to warn the world of what is seen to come because it's going to us to lay very quickly I don't think it will stay in that's stage for a very long I don't know for how long but it won't be for too long will get to stay she pretty quickly stage 2 of the son who was going to say you can still observe your Sabbath and I put observant quotes because now a law is put in place this you must honor and worship. On Sunday you must honor that day by worshipping on that day you can still be your servant they worship you and in addition to just refraining from work. You need to honor and worship on that day if you want to worship on your 7th day you can do that but Sunday is the day so now social pressure will increase and once there is a wall that actually enforces the worship of Sunday this is the beginning of a little time of trouble this is the beginning of the mark of the beast crisis where if you worship on that day you are receiving the mark of the beast the either in your forehead or in your hand and at this point many 7th Day Adventists will compromise even though it hasn't reached the point that we're going to see in 6 phases 3 and 4 where there's fines and imprisonment you can't buy or sell and finally a death agree many some of the adults are in line to compromise even with this pressure and this next they meant is rather sad from great conversely 6 o 8 which I think many of us are familiar with where elements as the storm approaches a large class who have professed faith in the 3rd angels message but have not been sanctified through beatings to the truth abandon the robber that abandon their position and join the ranks of the opposition by uniting with the world and partaking of its spirit they have come to view matters in nearly the same light and when that test is a bra they are prepared to choose the easy popular side and that's a warning for us even now if you're not being sanctified through obedience to the truth if the sweet spirit of Jesus and the fruits of the Spirit are not developing in your heart on a daily basis you're preparing to receive the mark of the beast if you're learning to unite with the spirit of the world and to choose the easy popular side whenever there is a crisis you are prepared to receive the mark of the beast and so when that 1st. Phase of the Sunday law comes that enforces Sunday worship many civilians will cave in immediately so there is phase one that says refrain from work and we say fine we'll be missionary later on that they don't want to face to comes which is the 1st part of and forced to worship. That's a time where we cannot compromise in any way it's not Ok to just go on and say well I go to church on Sunday I don't know to church on Sabbath so I'm back to that conversation I had with fellow administering evidence way about 15 years ago that's what one of them it said exactly said if they pass in front of the law I'll just go to church on Saturday and I'll go to church on Sunday and that's Mark of the beast thinking unfortunately. That quote goes on to say amount of talent blazing address who wants rejoice in the truth employ their power their power to deceive and mislead souls they become the most bitter enemies of their former brother in one Sabbath keepers are brought before the courts the answer for their faith these apostates are the most efficient agents of Satan to misrepresent and accuse them and by false reports and insinuations this theater of the Real is against them so I pray that none of you watching us will ever join the easy popular side and turn against God's people but unfortunately that is going to happen now we're going to go to stage 3. Stage 3 escalates things further this law as the escalates prohibits worship on Sabbath and you can only worship on Sunday and connected to that are fines and imprisonment and you cannot buy or sell now. Daniel 11 shows a nice development of this in Daniel in verse 43 where he has chosen or over us part of the treasury of Egypt and so that's where the papacy is the king of the North gains financial monetary control of the entire world. Before the final escalation in verses 44 and 45 with the death of the tree and Revelation 13 verse 7 he makes it very clear that if you don't have the mark of the beast you cannot buy or sell all and if you're used to compromising to take care of your family you're going to receive the mark of the beast because your mentality is such that God understands and he wouldn't want my family to go hungry and I need to pay my bills and so if you're compromising such as taking a job once. Or whatever else it may be so that you can pay the bills or if you're cheating God on top of that you can pay the bills whatever it is that's preparing yourself to receive the mark of the beast because soft preservation is a natural human mechanism but soft privacy preservation goes against faith and when God asks us to follow him when it doesn't make sense at all at all times from a human standpoint we this is where we are going to exercise faith now by not working on south by paying tithe even if we don't know where the money is going to come from and those kinds of faith experiences prepare us choose to receive the seal of God and avoid receiving the mark of the beast because we've learned that God is faithful Now let's look at some statements this is great controversy 6 o 7 which describes the escalation of the Sunday law crisis. As the controversy extends in any field in the minds of the people are called to God the downtrodden lost Satan as a steer the power tending the message will only Madden those who oppose It's of a lot of pride messages going with great power Madden's those who oppose of the clergy will put forth almost superhuman efforts to shut away the light less that should shine upon their flocks by every means at their command they will endeavor to suppress the discussion of these vital questions the church appeals to the strong arm of civil power and in this work papers and Protestants unite as the middle of meant for Sunday enforcement becomes more bold and decided the law will be in that up against commandment keepers so notice this work will become more bold and decided now notice that us they say that's because people will be threatened with fines and imprisonment and some will be offered positions of influence and other rewards and advantages as inducements to renounce their faith so don't fall for that you'll be offered money position fame power if you just fill along with the Sunday movement but then the the catch is if you don't go along with it we're going to find you will take all your money away we're going to imprison you and notice the faithful and there's the fattest answer they say Show us from the Word of God or air the same play that was made by Luther under similar circumstances those who were arraigned before the courts make a strong of indication of the truth and some who hear them are led to take their stand to keep all the commandments of God on the sly will be brought before thousands who otherwise would know nothing of these trees now just as an aside I've heard people say there's nothing we can do to vindicate God Well it's true that in our own strength we cannot vindicate God been through the power of God when we are faithful that's a vindication of the truth and that's a vindication of Jesus who is the truth so don't buy into the argument that nothing can be done by God's people to indicate God it's through the power of God That God then decades himself. His people but he is vindicated through their favorable notes. Then we get to stage 4 So stage one refrain from work or we engage a messenger missionary labor stage few you can honor Sabbath but you must worship on Sunday and that's when the mark of the beast crisis begins and that's when the little time of trouble begins and the Stage 3 escalates to where you can't worship on sight of you only worship on Sunday and find that in prison are imposed and you cannot by yourself finally we reach the point where there is a death in the creed and this that the Crees very very clearly mentioned in Revelation 13 versus 15 through 17 and it's worth reading here because the Bible is very clear that Sunday those who refused to receive the mark of the beast will be given the death of the tree. In verse 15 as he apparently give life into the image of the beast that the image of the beasts should both speak and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the bees should be killed and so. Daniel 114445 talks about how tidings out of the east the mouth of the North troubled the king of the North therefore he will go forth with great fury to destroy and utterly to make away money about the death of Crete and then he plants the tyrant of those policies between the season the glorious Holy Mountain and I mentioned on last week's presentation that the sea represents the Mediterranean Sea in the Dead Sea I felt the mention that symbolic of course and that the sea represents the people of the world who are on the side of the papacy who is pushing this final abomination of desolation which is the crease of the whole world as against this little room now in the stage for the sun their mothers This is the tree sane person it's Christ probation closes and the time of Jacob's trouble be ends. Now I want to just read of a few statements this is great controversy 6 o 4 fearful is the issue to which the world is to be brought the powers of the earth uniting to war against the commandments of God Well the tree of all those small and great rich and poor free and bond shall conform to the customs of the church by the observance of the fall of all if you refuse compliance will be visited with civil penalties and it will finally be declared that they are deserving of death so there is the tree and you can see the escalation or starts with civil penalties and then eventually the tree on the other hand the law of God and join in the Creator's rest they demands obedience and threatens wrath against all who transfer as its precepts with this was the issue thus clearly brought before him. Whoever shall trample upon God's law to obey a human in that event receives the mark of the beast he excepts the sign of allegiance to the power which he chooses to obey is that of God And here's the thing people will be receiving the mark of the beast at various stages of the mark of the beast crisis especially from Stage 2 on one Sunday worship is in force that might just come from social pressure it might come when you're faced with fines and in prison and not being able to buy and sell and some will eventually receive it when they face death unfortunately some will compromise of various stages so the mark of the beast doesn't just come at the death of a tree from coming any point along that line that goes on to say the warning from heaven as if any man worship the beast in his image receive his mark on his forehead or in his and the same will drink of the wine of the wrath of God which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation Now this is going to be part of the loud cry of message that we have some of the atmosphere given during the summer a lot of crisis we're going to be telling the world don't fall for this false religious law that is going to cause you to receive the mark of the beast because if you receive the mark of the beast you will receive the wrath of God which is the 7 last plagues stand on God's side even though it seems like the whole world may be against you was God on your side he will be rather through this crisis that's going to be the final giving of the 3rd angels and. Now. Satan does person in a crisis during this last great act of the drama and this provides an impetus for the tree we see this the Koreas well in Revelation 1217 Daniel I'm 44 and 45 as I've already mentioned. Great conversely 624 points as the crowning act in the great drama of deception Satan himself will personate Christ the church as long professed to look to the Savior is adamant as the consummation of her hopes now the great deceiver will make it appear that Christ has come in different parts of the earth Satan will manifest himself among men as a majestic being of desolate. Right and it's brightness resembling the description of the Son of God given by John the revelation so he's going to look like Jesus and then he goes on the glory that surrounds him as unsurpassed by anything that moralize of yet behold the shot of trying friends out upon the earth Christ has come Christ has come the people prostrate themselves and how to ration reform while he lifts up his hands and pronounce the pronounce as a blessing upon them as Christ and blessed that the cycles when he was upon the earth His voice was soft and subdued yet full of knowledge in and out of this in gentle compassionate tones he presents some of the same gracious heavenly truths which the Savior added He healed the diseases of the people and then I thought in his assumed character of Christ he claims to have changed the Sabbath the Sunday and commands all the how of the day which he has blessed he declares that those who persist in keeping holy the 7th they are blaspheming his name by refusing to listen to his angels sent to them with light injuries this is the strong almost overmastering delusion like this Americans who were deceived by Simon maggots the multitudes from the least of the greatest give heed to the sorcery saying this is the great power of God and so many who have been teetering on the fence will be swept away of all of this last year a deception by Satan which will be very unfortunate but notice for the people of God to lobby must love the teachings of this false Christ or not in accordance with the Scriptures his blessing is permanent pronounced upon the worshippers of the beast and his image of the very class upon him the Bible declares that God's mangled Round shall be poured out. So we're not going to be deceived even when Satan comes a person it's Christ because anyone who says that the Sabbath has been changed to Sunday we know is a false Christ or a false prophet and so these are the stages of the Sunday law. And then Ellen White also says in great controversy 635 this is going to summarize some of these points that. There is going to be the withdrawal of the protection of human laws and there's going to be a time appointed when the dust the tree will be enacted and we're going to talk about this and later presentation and God's people throughout the earth will be crying out for deliverance in the hour of their of the 6 Trinity and. Just so when it seems that God's people will be destroyed and you see shots of During triumph imprecation from the evil men the dense blackness falls upon the wicked as they come to attempt to destroy God's people and we will see that God's people will be delivered and what will deal with that in a later presentation so as we progress through a close I just want to give you a few things to think about in this preparation for the coming crisis there is a season of a distress that is before us and how are you preparing I mean now that this pandemic has and the civil unrest is happening around the world around us you know it would be ashamed if your character today was the same as it was 3 months ago or 6 months ago I would hope and pray that this crisis has brought you closer to the Lord and I want to read a couple of statements the as we bring this to a close this is a great controversy $621.00 the season of distress and anguish before us will require a faith that can endure weariness and delight and hunger a faith that will not faint though severely tried the period of probation is granted to all to prepare for that time Jacob prevail because he was perseverance and determined his victory is an evidence of the power of him for tonight prayer all who will lay hold of God's promises as he did and be as earnest and perseverance as he was will succeed as he succeeded us and friends I pray that right now that if you were laying hold on God's promises that you are allowing God to strengthen and develop your faith because. This is the time of opportunity and preparation to be ready for the Final Crisis. Now I want to read another thing this is great conversely 623 now will I rate high priest as making the Atonement force we should seek to become perfect in Christ not even by a thought but our Savior be brought to yield of the power of temptation to say and find that human heart some point where he can gain a foothold some sinful desires cherished by means of which is temptations assert their power but Christ the clarity of himself the prince of this world come with and how from nothing in me Satan could find nothing in the Son of God that would enable him to gain the victory he had kept his Father's Commandments and there was no sin in him that Satan could use to his advantage this is the condition in which is those must be found who shall stand in the time of trouble you know there's a lot of false Fiala g. even in the administration today that basically says you can be covered by the righteousness of Christ while centers in your life and the Ellen White very clearly here from an aeration says Well Christ is making the attempt for us we should seek to become perfect in Christ not even by the thought that our Savior be brought to yield to the power of temptation in other words that's going to be our condition we won't be yielding even in our thoughts of the power of temptation Satan couldn't find anything in Christ and as the mystery of God is finished in our lives Christ in you the hope of glory as we receive the seal of the Living God in the time of trouble Satan will find nothing in us that will be the condition that we will stand through the time of trouble so be careful about theology that says sanctify sanctification won't be complete until Jesus comes after probation closes at the death the tree and we're standing through the time of trouble if you're still found with him and you're alive you won't be found ready for Jesus to come and so these 4 stages of the Sunday law tell us how things are going to play out and. We want to be found a ready we want to be ready for those 4 stages we want to be the wiser virgins with the extra while in our vessels with their lamps having the fruits of the Spirit and Christ is more than willing to aid each one of us in our preparation for that time so as we bring a suit of clothes I'm just going to ask for the Lord's blossom to be with each one of us so let's pray Father we've considered a number of things this presentation about the 4 stages of the National Sunday law. And I pray a lot of that we would be ready for what's going to come upon this world as an overwhelming surprise for us help us to be ready for your coming help us to be preparing in our hearts for what a sinner. And I pray that we would be helping others to be ready as well may we have a spirit now of being faithful wanted to not compromise no matter what so that as the pressure escalates through us through social pressure and then with fine then president not being able to virus on Finally with the death of her e even with delusions all around us I pray that we would be found faithful and that we would give the loud cry message fearlessly under the power of God So thank you for this time that we've had to study and be with us until next we factor in Jesus name and again I want to invite you to be in our study next week when we look at this concept of the New World Order What does that mean and how will how we should be aware of all of us and think you know we'll see you next week.
