America and the Papacy in Prophecy and in the News Today

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

   “The spirit of liberty went with the Bible. Wherever the gospel was received, the minds of the people were awakened. They began to cast off the shackles that held them bond-slaves of ignorance, vice, and superstition.  They began to think and act as men.”- E. G. White, “The Bible and the French Revolution,” Great Controversy (1911 ed.), p. 277.

Lest the remnant people of the last days, clearly identified in Revelation 12: 17 and Rev. 14: 12 become caught–up, side-tracked, or misled by deft deflections in all the crush of head-line –grabbing news,— Read more

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

God never forces the will or the conscience; but Satan’s constant resort—to gain control of those he cannot otherwise seduce—is compulsion by cruelty.”

– E. G. White, Great Controversy, p. 591, par 3.

Mr. Evolutionist, lend an ear. Humanity is sobbing non-stop, pleading, expecting, and hoping that this brand and Read more

Unbroken Apostolic Succession of the Papacy?

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER SEVEN – Part 21
 
Unbroken Apostolic Succession of the Papacy?  

According to Webster’s Student Edition Dictionary (1976), papacy includes four things: “1. the position or authority of the pope 2. the period during which the pope rules  3. the line of succession of popes 4. the government of the Roman Catholic Church, headed by the pope.” It is important to remember these 4-point definition whenever referring to the papacy. Moreover, it is essential to remember that not one single or any particular pope is the papacy or the beast, even the president is the presidency or a senator the senate itself, etc. This would expose many false interpretations. For instance, while he was still alive, it was claimed that Pope John Paul (the first Polish pope) was the “last pope,” who was allegedly going to usher in the “New World Order” for the Church of Rome, with Gorbachev for Russia, and George Bush Sr. for America!  Read more

The Dragon, Beast, and His Image

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE- Part XLI

 The Dragon, Beast, and His Image

The true ground of divine worship, not of the seventh day merely, but of all worship, is found in the distinction between the Creator and His creatures.

This great fact can never become obsolete, and must never be forgotten.

 J. N. Andrews, “History of the Sabbath,” ch. 27.

 

Obedience is the highest form of worship. Mankind’s final test and war will be over the issue of religious liberty and worship not over oil or water. I strongly encourage everyone to study and/or review The Great Controversy by Ellen G. White and her other books of the Conflict of the Ages series by quoting extensively from chapter 25, “God’s Law Immutable” below. It exposes that fears of Shariah law, Muslim takeover of the world, Russia, China, North Korea, and a nuclear “Third World war,” etc. are misplaced. Read more

Internal Peace in a World at War and the Calm before the Storm

We address important, late-breaking developments showing how the Third angel’s message is “swelling into the loud cry of Revelation 18,” also referred to as the “fourth angel,” and “the events connected with the close of probation.”

See http://news.yahoo.com/pope-francis-opens-st-peters-holy-door-launch-102813909.html. Fast-tracking pope Francis (he speeded up the canonization process of John Paul II and John XIII, April 27, 2015, breaching the standard 5-year waiting period and waiving the Vatican’s two-miracle requirement. See Bloomberg.com/new/articles),  launched Tuesday, December 8, the “extraordinary Catholic Jubilee Year ofmercy by opening a “holy Door” in the walls of St. Peter’s, saying, “This is the door of the Lord. Open to me thegates of justice.” Read more

The Threefold Union in the Battle of Armageddon (Continued)  

The 15-paged pamphlet,ARMAGEDDON–The Time of Spiritual Israel’s Deliverance, with listed mailing address (no printing date or copyright then), as: Louis F. Were, Box 363F, G.P.O., Melbourne, Victoria, Modern Printing Co., Ltd. Chancery Lane, Adelaide, Australia, will be quoted in full, progressively, with notes and additional observations as indicated.

For the scope and profound nature of the subjects, this pamphlet is concise and comprehensive.  It quickly answers questions which have puzzled many Bible students into either giving up further study or taking up Futurism which discards God’s system of enlargement, i.e., type-antitype,  “comparing scripture with scripture,” studying it “line upon line, here a little there a little” (Isa. 28: 9-13). The Bible, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit is its own expositor, not church teachings based on man’s philosophies and traditions. This pamphlet lays down both groundwork and springboard for expansion as we continue studying the topics in the light of the “law and testimony” (Isa. 8: 20) and pertinent historic as well as current events.

WHO WERE THE WALDENSES?

 

Late-breaking news, REUTERS, 06/28/2015 by Philip Pullella. Headline:

     Pope Francis Asks Forgiveness for Catholic Church’s Persecution of the Waldenses.

“Pope Francis asked forgiveness on Monday for the Roman Catholic Church’s ‘non-Christian and inhumane’ treatment in the past of the Waldensians, a tiny Protestant movement the Vatican tried to exterminate in the 15th century. Francis made his plea during the first ever visit by a pope to a Waldensian temple on the second day of a trip to Italy’s northern Piedmont region, the centre of the Waldensian Church, which has only 30, 000 followers worldwide.

     “While the movement is miniscule compared to the 1.2 billion Roman Catholic Church, the gesture is part of Francis’ drive to promote Christian unity and it has taken on added significance ahead of the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation in 2017.  ‘On behalf of the Catholic Church, I ask forgiveness for the un-Christian and even inhumane positions and actions taken against you historically, he said. ‘In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, forgive us!’ Read more

 THE THREE PERSONS OF THE GODHEAD (Continued)

 

The third angel’s message of Revelation 14 calls attention to the Ten Commandments, the true Sabbath; directs minds to the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary where Christ our High Priest is closing up His work of mediation and pre-advent judgment, and is “justification by faith in verity.” It also includes this assignment:  “In the very time which we live, the Lord has called His people and has given them a message to bear. He has called them to expose the wickedness of the man of sin who has made the Sunday law a distinctive power, who has thought to change times and laws, and to oppress the people of God who stand firmly to honor Him by keeping the only true Sabbath, the Sabbath of creation, as holy unto the Lord.” –E.G. White, Testimonies to Ministers, p. 118.   

April 11, 2015: Pope Frances issued a Misercordiae Vultus—BULL OF INDICTION OF THE EXTRAORDINARY JUBILEE OF MERCY (Multimedia) which declares to the Roman Catholic Church’s votaries worldwide that their Holy Year called the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, will open on December 2015, eight months from today.  Read more
