Blue laws (national Sunday laws) are already on the law books across America and around the world, they just need to be ENFORCED. And as we know from Revelation 13, it is America (the earth beast) that causes the world to worship the sea beast (bow to the "authority" of the Vatican) and to take her mark.

Daniel 6:5 ...'Then said these men, we shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of His God.'

"In the fourth and fifth centuries, Sunday shows and Sunday theaters, it was complained, hindered the "devotion of the faithful," because many of the members attended them in preference to the church services. The church, therefore, demanded that the state interfere, and promote Sunday observance by law. "In this way," Says Neander "the church received help from the state for the furtherence of her ends." This union of church and state served to establish the Papacy in power. A similar course pursued now will produce the same results." (AUGUSTUS NEANDER, General History of the Christian Religion and the Church, Torey translation (3rd American ed.), vol. 2, pp. 300,301)

! Warning to Sabbath Keepers ! Please do not become complacent in your faith, merely waiting for the Sunday law to be enforced. We NEED to have a DAILY relationship with Jesus Christ in order to get through the time of trouble that is coming. Are you living for Christ everyday?

Revelation 12:11 ...'And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.' ... These are powerful words and they describe the TRUE people of God. Who are they? They are the ones who trust in the blood of Jesus, and by the word of their testimony, SHOW that their lives were totally devoted to God. And as Revelation 14:12 says, they (the saints) are the ones who keep the faith OF Jesus. They don't just have faith 'IN' Jesus, they keep the faith OF Christ. In other words, the faith, character and life of Jesus is actively being LIVED OUT in their lives. Does this describe you? Are you covered by CHRIST AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS?

Are you worshiping the TRUE living God of the Bible and our church pioneers? Please see the TRUTH about THE TRINITY DOCTRINE.

"Get ready, get ready, get ready. Ye will have to die a greater death to the world than ye have ever yet died ... Get ready, get ready, get ready. Ye must have a greater preparation than ye now have, for the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate and to destroy the sinners thereof out of it. Sacrifice all to God. Lay all upon His altar." (Early Writings, P64-67)

Pope Francis pushing the 'importance of Sunday rest' and speaks against being a 'slave to work' (August 2015)

"A day of rest and prayer each week are sacred Pope Francis has said in his weekly meeting at the Vatican noting that Sunday is a day the family can enjoy one another and not be slaves to work ... Moments of rest, especially on Sunday, are sacred because in them we find God, said the Pope, noting that the Sunday Eucharist brings to celebrations Jesus' grace."

And so the push for Sunday observance continues. You will notice that some countries like the UK are trying to push for EXTENDED working hours on Sundays. If this happens, and it is a big IF. Don't be surprised to see Satan causing worse things to happen in these countries to make it appear as if working on Sundays is the cause of the trouble. Then the pope will be able to say 'I told you so', and persuade the governments to enforce a Sunday law ... 'for the better of families and society'.

Pope Francis says No-Work Sundays are Good for all People, not just Christians (July 2014)
