Pope Benedict Pushing Sunday Again (October 2010) Quote ... "it is necessary to promote reflection and efforts at reconciling the demands and the periods of work with those of the family and to recover the true meaning of the feast, especially on Sunday, the weekly Easter, the day of the Lord and the day of man, the day of the family, of the community and of solidarity."
This is how they are pushing Sunday now, as a "family day". Maybe this is the way they will be able to reach even those outside the faith and cause the world to take the mark.
European Union of Churches Push for "Protection" of Sunday (Aug 2010) Representatives from these church groups in a meeting with a representative of the French Presidency of the EU expressed their concerns about Christians in Iraq and also discussed the current financial global crisis and made known their wish to see Sunday "protected" as a rest day WITHIN NATIONAL LEGILSATIONS, for the "better of society".
We are seeing more and more of this kind of talk now and it won't be long before a Sunday law is written into the law books of the worlds nations. It's already on the law books across America!
Clause in New Lisbon Treaty Could Help Sunday Legislation (July 2010) According to Martin Kastler, there should be a law right across Europe banning shops from opening on Sundays and making it a family day. And there is a clause in the new treaty which could help bring about this legislation.
But what interests me in the news article is that the European Union could let the PEOPLE decide on this. Now what does it say in Revelation 13:14, about America? That it tells the PEOPLE to make an image of the beast. The decision of the Sunday law will be with the people.
We Should Bring Back "Rules" to Decide What Can and Can't be Done One Day a Week (May 2010) A Jewish woman called Judith Shulevitz is interviewed on CNN about her new book, "the sabbath world". A couple of things you will notice about the interview. First, she never mentions God. For her, keeping the "sabbath" is just about us and family. Second, you will notice at the end of the video clip she says, "we should bring back rules to decide what can and can't be done one day a week." (Most probably Sunday).
Yep! That's called the Sunday Law! It's coming!
Churchgoers Force Local Authority in Belfast to not Hold the Marathon on Sunday (May 2010) Of course the "sabbath" they are talking about is Sunday, the man-made "sabbath", not God's truth Sabbath day (Saturday). The local authority was going to switch the marathon to a Sunday, but churchgoers hit out, saying that it should not be held on the "sabbath". Just think, this was a relatively small amount of people who forced the local governing authority to keep Sunday as the "sabbath" and not have the marathon on that day. Now just imagine people all over the world getting together and crying out for a Sunday law.
Keep watching for this kind of thing to gain momentum
Marshall Islands Considering Passing Sunday Law (Feb - March 2010) Bill no. 66 is being considered, which would be known as "the Sunday observance act 2010"
Sunday Should be "Family Day" (March 2010) Notice this quote:
"Imagine one day, monthly or weekly, when we focus on the important things: when no one works, when no shopping errands have to/can be run, a day where people focus on time with the family."
The Sunday law will really start to be pushed for soon. Is your relationship strong with Jesus? It needs to be my friend. Are you preparing yourself for the time of trouble that is to come, by fully submitting to the LORD? Are you fleeing from sin? Today is the day to get ready!
The "Sabbath" Profaned by Voting on Sunday (March 2010) Republican Michele Bachmann vented her disgust that the pro-abortion vote was done on a Sunday (the Sabbath according to her). This kind of comment will be heard more and more to try and get into people's minds that Sunday is the Sabbath, and should be treated as such, before they enforce the Sunday law.
European Parliament Conference on Sunday Law (March 2010) This is a conference that is being held on 24th March at the European Parliament, to discuss a "work free" Sunday. In other words to bring about a Sunday Law.
Another Organization pushing for Sunday laws in Europe (March 2010) "We need a work-free Sunday in all of Europe" is the phrase quoted on this website. Of course they give good reasons for having a rest day. But, the problem is, as we know, they are choosing the day that man set aside for rest, not the day God set aside. God commanded us to rest on the seventh day, man will SOON command us to rest on the first day!
Supermarkets Taken to Court over Sunday Shopping (March 2010) Five supermarkets in the Netherlands are being taken to court because they have been opening for business "illegally" on Sundays. This is what will happen to God's people during the last days when the mark is issued and we refuse to honor Sunday as the Sabbath.
