Noble Bereans? Part 56: “Ellen White’s Views On The Two Beasts of Revelation 13” CONTINUED

In yesterday’s devotional (click here), it was pointed out how the Passover and Unleavened Bread feast was to be kept throughout time, but in a spiritual manner, not physically nor literally.

.

So too, the 7th Day Sabbath is to be kept spiritually. Listen to Jesus…“Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

.

Here we see that Jesus offers a “rest unto your souls”

SALVATION ON OUR OWN TERMS

.

Now, having said all this, listen to this very revealing statement from Ellen White, regarding the progenitors of the Sunday Sabbath, the Roman Catholic Church…“A prayerful study of the Bible would show Protestants the real character of the papacy and would cause them to abhor and to shun it; but many are so wise in their own conceit that they feel no need of humbly seeking God that they may be led into the truth. …The papacy is well adapted to meet the wants of all these. It is prepared for two classes of mankind, embracing nearly the whole world–those who would be saved by their merits, and those who would be saved in their sins. Here is the secret of its power.” Great Controversy p. 573

.

Here she speaks of the secret of the power of the papacy: “those who would be saved by their merits, and those who would be saved in their sins.”

.

.

.

.

.

“NO REST, DAY NOR NIGHT”

.

Well, if this is the secret of the power of the papacy, then what is missing in the lives of her followers?

.

They have no rest unto their souls! They are still under the yoke of bondage to their unbelief and sin!

.

They want to be saved, but only under their own conditions.

NOT A MERE 24-HOUR/WEEK REST

.

Now listen to Revelation 14 as it describes those who have received the Beast’s mark…“they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Revelation 14:11

.

Now it clearly teaches here that there is no rest, day nor night for those who receive the Beast’s mark. In other words these recipients of the Beast’s Mark have no rest 24/7/365. This is not merely a 24 hour rest on Friday to Saturday night! And so, it cannot be speaking according to the letter of the law, but to a spiritual rest which they do not have…“But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.” Isaiah 57:20

.

So here is the Mark of the Beast spoken of way back in Isaiah’s day! The wicked “cannot rest”, and “there is no peace” in their souls.

Well, it looks as though this complex subject will have to continue into tomorrow’s devotional (CLICK HERE).

.

Yes, these are indeed, very complex issues.

.

And this website has many articles which will clarify all these things.

.

And the Noble Berean is highly encouraged to continue reading tomorrow’s devotional to complete this discussion.

7 STARS IMITATE THE CROSS OF ORION

.

 

.

 This phenomenon begins in late October, in the pre-dawn hours. It then begins a little earlier each night, and lasts for several months, until they both appear to lie down once again.

The Cross of Orion Constellation star-chart.

This Wikipedia star-chart to the left, has this Orion Constellation sketched in. You must locate Orion, when it is mid-sky, between east and west. You’ll be facing southward most likely, unless you are far south. Try to imagine it as a Cross on a steep hill. The 3-star belt of Orion becomes the crest of the hill. The 3 very faint stars that make up Orion’s head become the very top of the Cross.

.

Next, locate the 7 Stars Constellation. This 7 Stars Constellation is seen by facing northward. It stands upright a little later in the night. Eventually, Orion will lay down and no longer be seen as an uplifted Cross! Beginning in November, the 7 Stars (AKA Big Dipper) can be seen as a Cross a little bit later in evening.

.

When you are comfortable in locating Orion & The 7 Stars Constellations, then show a friend. This can be a great witnessing tool!
