Romans 13:1, Sunday Laws, & Economy
By Nicholas
November 24, 2008



Back in early October I shared an article on the site titled, "Catholic Origins of the European Union." In the article it was boldly admitted by the Roman Catholic author that Pope Leo XIII who was in power from 1878 to 1903 was in fact the forefather that caused certain political movements whose end result was the European Union (EU) of today. Thing is, it was actually Pope Pius VI that desired such a thing, but the Lord used Napoleon to stop him dead in his tracts in 1798. It was even admitted by Rome that due to Napoleon, the efforts by Pius VI were short lived. Pope Pius XII (Hitler's Pope) actually blamed the people's lack of desire to unify globally as the reason for Hitler's rampage. Strange thing is, today we look back and now have documented proof that Pius XII was in fact flexing his muscles so as to help escalate what Pius VI started and Leo XIII reactivated. Is it any wonder Pope Benedict XVI seeks to make Pius XII a saint!? Their agenda is so matched that he can't help but to praise his political mentor. This is also why Pius XII took the name of "Pius." He was in agreement with all that which Pius VI did before God stopped him in 1798.

Now that Rome has stated quite boldly they admit to being the ones that started the ball rolling on the One World Government. A prophetic fact by the way only Antichrist could fulfill. But they are now setting the stage for the final prophetic event. The mark of the Roman Vatican Beast, Sunday Laws, is finally on the table in the EU. Strange as it may seem, they are using the obviously pre-planned economic disasters as a way to schmooze the lethargic powers that be into jumping on the bandwagon regarding a global Sabbath. On November 14, the Vatican's Commission of the Bishops' Conferences of the European Community (COMECE) published an article wherein they discussed the following agenda during their annual Autumn meeting...

The financial crisis has exposed a deeper spiritual crisis and a misguided set of values. ...The financial crisis also offers the opportunity to question more incisively the lifestyle of western society. 
It is up to Christians to make their fellow-citizens aware that moderation can be synonymous with quality of life and with happiness, because it helps to distinguish the essential from the superfluous. ...In the same spirit, the Bishops called for respect for Sunday rest as one of the foundations of the European social model and as a way of balancing work and family life. In recent years, Sunday as a weekly rest day has been threatened by legislation in many Member States thanks to liberal and consumerist-driven political concepts. In the context of the present economic crisis, the COMECE Bishops call on the Members of the European Parliament to assume their responsibilities and include the protection of Sunday in the Working Time Directive that will be submitted to the European Parliament’s vote by the middle of December.

Seeing how everyone knows, thanks to the Vatican's recent admission, that the so called successful restructuring in EU is their baby, it's only natural all those leaders out there that seek political benefits with the one and only political father on Earth, the Pope, will quickly scramble to listen to any and all suggestions from him. As I said time and time again, if you want to bolster your political career it's best you bow to Rome in every way possible. Ignoring her evil desires will not only place you in a bread line, it will also make you their next target for military conflict. No, the Vatican does not sport a military force worth much of anything. But just as prophecy predicted, she does control the military of the United States like a schoolyard bully with a slingshot. As it was during the Inquisition on a personal basis, her "Shock and Awe" techniques on a global basis always make the weak ones bow or her or die if they refuse.

The Vatican desperately needs to enforce Sunday Laws because in so doing this places them above every nation on earth as the moral authority. With the One World Government, or New World Order (NWO) as most call it, looming on the near horizon, Rome's position on the earthly throne of moral leadership is an absolute must if they are to have the global power that is unmatched by none. Without it, religious laws would be impossible. There isn't a single nation out there that can match the Vatican controlled U.S. military and they know it. This is why Revelation 13:4 stated clearly that they will say in our day, "...who is able to make war with him?"

National leaders easily bow when they see how stealth bombers, cruise missiles, Satellite and seismic weapons can easily annihilate them long before they known they are in danger. But what of the population in general? Leaders are easy to control because they usually worship money and or power. But the common man is not so easy. Unless of course you get them in churches controlled by Rome. This is why they pushed the ecumenical charge so hard the last few decades. As we will get into a little later, it is here you will find they plan to use the Christian Bible as a way to convince the people it's best to follow their leaders in any law they deem necessary to enforce because they have Rome's ok on it, and they "supposedly" have Scripture to back it up.

If we've learned anything from September 11th, it's that the powers that be will use fear to force the people into begging for laws they want on the books in the first place. Rome did it eons ago, they had Hitler do it in his day, and the last few presidents help to seal the deal in our day. And yes, even an economic collapse is fearful for those that have no faith in God to supply their needs. But such a thing is needed if they are going to be able to bring in the Amero dollar. At present, the USA net worth per person on average is just over 4 times that of Mexico. So bringing the Amero in without the recession they are building now would be a great shock to everyone's livelihood. But if you slowly lower our per capita net worth to match that of Mexico, it will be an easier transition for the One World Currency to come in.

All the pieces are falling in place a little tighter. All they need for this present agenda is a way to convince the people it's a good idea to keep the Roman Sunday holy. Sure, the first Roman Catholic president, John F. Kennedy passed Sunday Laws in his day that forced all government agencies to close on Sundays (blue laws). And yes, some businesses did follow suit just as they had hoped shortly thereafter. It was here first, in the so called land of the free where we saw Sunday Laws being passed. Yes, it's only forced on government agencies at present, but those that work for big government are humans headed for Heaven or Hell just like the rest of us. Still, it's not as ensconced as they need it to be and as prophecy said it will be. With that said, I would like to share with you what was recently discovered on the "Obama Biden" BLOG website back in June of this year. I'm sure many didn't see this as much of a threat back then since Obama was just running for office at the time. Being just a candidate won't cause many red flags to pop up for most people. And I will be the first to admit I never like to report on political "possibilities" even in regards to prophetic fulfilments UNTIL they gain office or do something rather intense beforehand like Ron Paul did. They have no power while campaigning for the job, unless of course they are the incumbent candidate. Conjecture doesn't do much more then fan the flames of confusion. So I usually wait until the day after the election to investigate. Obama was nothing to worry about until he actually won the election. But now that he is about to stand as president, thoughts like this being discussed on his blog could become the norm in his administration due to the fact he is an extremely popular Vatican puppet. And yes he is working for Rome. He has a Roman Catholic V.P. keeping an eye on him. To be honest, I have no doubt he was forced by Rome to have that man there so as to make sure he does as Rome demands. In other words, I can see the carrot dangling before Obama's face some months back that says, "you want to be president? Then our man must be there to guide you to make sure we don't have a repeat of the 1960's." On his blog it was stated the following. Before reading, notice how attractive the blogger tries to make the idea for Sunday laws to appear to all those reading. (As usual, I do not correct grammar of spelling mistakes in articles or blogs posted to this site)

Originally, the sunday laws were instituted to make sure that people wouldn't have to choose between work and church.  Often, the nobility would use financial enticements toward the religious heads of households in order to coherce them to work in order to increase his own financial gain. This was unfair to those who needed money, feared losing their means of supporting themselves, and without such a law banning people from working (though I don't believe it applied to you working for your own business), people would be further burdened.

I have to wonder if there weren't more benefits to this.  First, without businesses being open, your kids would have nowhere to go for entertainment.  Parents would have at least 1 day they could spend with family & friends without having to align work schedules.  Decrease in gas use across the board.  Less crime (since parents are home on Sundays, there is no reason why you can't keep an eye on them.)  Fewer homeless people begging in the street (Since there are no people to beg from).  Less Police would be necessary (if any at all... They could go on an "On Call As Needed" basis so they might be able to spend time with family.  Neighbors would have time to get to know each other.  How well do you know your neighbors now?  Have you had any barbecues?  Right now, I would guess that most people who may have barbecues, are only hanging out with people who are white collar regardless of the neighborhood you live in.  Our work schedules can determine what class you relate to and hardens those lines even more.

So perhaps we should consider enacting a Sunday Law.  Not to restrict people from working, but to give liberty to those who can't choose.  And imagine the tax dollars that would be saved?

The author is nothing more then a blogger of course, and it's hard to tell if he is somewhat respected in the Journalistic community or not. But I don't think that matters much a this point. Thing is, the thoughts he brings up proves he is allowing Satan more control over his mind than most. He comes up with a believable and quite inviting scenario that will no doubt become very attractive to those seeking to push Sunday Laws in the days ahead. What's worse, his permanent comments are on the most visited blog on the planet. Especially for politicians since Obama won. All political up and comers are guaranteed to study Obama's blog for future methods they can use to gain office in their day. This always happens when a politician is successful. All the underlings come out of the woodwork looking to find out how he did it. So they will study this man and every bit of info he has to offer both on and offline to emulate his actions towards success.

With all this in mind, it's no wonder the children of God are asking questions regarding their next move for the Remnant church. In the COMECE article I shared previously, they were never able to vote on the Sunday Law issue at the October meeting. But they do plan another meeting in December wherein the Bishops will most likely bring it up. Will they pass it? No clue. If they do, I don't see it being a "forced" issue right off as it wasn't forced on the people when Kennedy did it in 1960. But then he only passed it on Government agencies back then. That fact alone happens to bring up a red flag for those of us that understand what happened on March 7, 2006. The Sunday keeping preachers have far more power to get their agenda met now because today ALL Sunday keeping pastors with a 501C3 are in fact considered Government agents when George W. Bush signed them up and made it law on March 7, 2006. Will the government demand they keep Sunday holy by law since all government agencies have been doing since 1960? And since the SDA church is also a 501C3 church helping to create the Image of the Roman Beast, they must comply as well to keep Sunday holy since they are "by law" a government agency. Will they do it? Truth is, the SDA church has been keeping Sunday holy for many years in dozens of churches already. So it won't be a problem at all.

The powers that be can easily drop the other shoe and start an enforced Sunday Law here or anywhere now that they have most of their ducks in a row. And no I am not predicting that to occur in the coming months like some unbridled preachers have been found doing. I know for a fact the Loud Cry must go forth first. The fact we know they are planning such things will no doubt cause the Loud Cry to swell up immediately as many Christians will be moved by the Lord to speak out.

They have been talking about Sunday Laws for eons, yes. In fact, ever since the first one on March 7, 321AD we have seen it on and off in most places. What we see today is an actual structured talk on Sunday Laws within the walls of a Parliament meeting that represents all the nations in the EU. Yes, this can take months or even years because some of the nations may balk at it as we have seen in the past when they try to pass unjust laws. Still, the fact of the matter is, they have started the talks. As we know, when such a thing starts most politicians never give up until the agenda is either voted on and passed, or struck down. As students of prophecy we know that this is going to happen eventually. That fact alone will get many of the sleeping virgins up and out of bed I'm sure. Truth is, the Loud Cry has already begun to swell up in many hearts around the world. Some of you reading right now know exactly what I'm talking about. Soon our combined and well blessed efforts will cause the Babylonian church pews to empty. That of course will anger the 501C3 pastors to the point of demanding Sunday Laws to shut us up. They are preachers of filthy lucre just as Jesus said they would be, and their monetary god is threatened when the souls that hear the truth we preach accept it, and stop warming their pews and filling their coffers. Now that they are legally considered "government agents" they will have the legal authority to demand an ear in their legislative halls, and we will see Sunday Laws. But, how you ask will they be able to convince the people it's good idea to have Sunday enforced by Law? I touched on this earlier. They will use the Bible in a way that only those that refuse to read it won't catch. Some of us already saw them use this technique in late 2005. In fact, Ellen White predicted they would do this very thing long ago.

The National Reform movement, exercising the power of religious legislation, will, when fully developed, manifest the same intolerance and oppression that have prevailed in past ages. Human councils then assumed the prerogatives of Deity, crushing under their despotic power liberty of conscience; and imprisonment, exile, and death followed for those who opposed their dictates. ...There is a prospect before us of a continued struggle, at the risk of imprisonment, loss of property, and even of life itself, to defend the law of God, which is made void by the laws of men. In this situation worldly policy will urge an outward compliance with the laws of the land, for the sake of peace and harmony. And there are some who will even urge such a course from the Scripture: "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. . . . The powers that be are ordained of God." - Testimonies Vol. 5 p 712

That's right, she prophesied long ago they will use Romans 13:1 out of context to force people to bow to the governing powers that be. In 2005 they actually tested this method out during the Katrina disaster wherein the Government sent pastors door to door to convince the people to give up their guns by using Romans 13:1. So, let's read this passage, in context and see what it says...

  • Romans 13:1-7, "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.  Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.  For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:  For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.  Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.  For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.  Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour."

Right off we see that Paul is stating "the powers that be are ordained of God" to be standing in their respective position of power. This is true, for it is also written that our God sets up these rulers to stand in their ruling position...

  • Daniel 2:37, "Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory."

In Romans 13, Paul is speaking of leaders that are "the minister of God to thee for good" as a basic rule of thumb. What most miss is that many are not walking with God and therefore seeking unjust laws. For example, Nebuchadnezzar was not walking with the Lord when he was given the dream Daniel translates for him. Yet, Daniel declares he is king due to the simple fact God would have it to be so. So, it's not always the godly that stand in office that are placed there. Still some are placed there that are godly and their "...heart is in the hand of the Lord" (Proverbs 21:1) as they rule.

The powers that be are ordained yes, but as we have seen by the past as it is outlined in God's Word, many of the kings in Jerusalem and Judah of old did not follow after the Father's will. They are given a great test to pass and most fail miserably. Today we live in the last days wherein most have hearts like those in Noah's day just as Jesus prophesied with 100% accuracy in Matthew 24:37. How were their hearts in Noah's day?

  • Genesis 6:5, "And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."

That being said, we all know that the majority of those that stand in Washington D.C. or any other nation on earth are quite evil. So, are we to obey them? My simple answer to that question is YES. However, what if they ask us to do things that we know is sin? Do we obey them then? What did Peter say when the "powers that be" in His day demanded he stop doing as God called him to do when he was preaching Christ to all those that had ears to hear?

  • Acts 5:29, "...We ought to obey God rather than men."

Some may say that the Jews were not the "powers that be" in Peter's day. However, if you look back you will find that God did in fact ordain those men to stand in their respective office. If the Jews didn't see themselves as a power to be reckoned with, why is the high priest "commanding" Peter and the others to shut up regarding Christ? You cannot command without the power to do so. Keep in mind, the Romans were only used by the Jews when certain sinful acts were impossible for the Jews to commit. We learned this quite clearly in the illegal trial of Jesus Christ our Lord. Yes the Romans ruled, but the Jews did as well. They even had their temple tax that was paid by all. The fact of the matter here is, after the high priest got in Peter's face about breaking their unbiblical interpretation of the law they were ordained to enforce, Peter clearly stated "We ought to obey God rather than men."

So, let me ask a question or two of all those that feel they must obey government on every turn irregardless of the wickedness the laws legalize. Government has declared some years ago that it's perfectly legal for woman to murder their children in what they term as abortion. Do you as a Christian believe this is ok? Or do you know in your heart that to do such an act is evil? What about alcohol? That has been legal for decades, but I have yet to meet a Christian that is of this number that has ever felt at ease or free to indulge in such things that poison and defile the body. Some States declare it is legal for two men or two women to marry and live as a married couple. Does this make the powers that be on Earth more powerful then God? Does their power make their laws somehow sanctioned by God? No, not at all. It just proves they were ordained to be rulers by God because they have the ability to pass such laws. But it also proves they are now failing the tests they were blessed with to pass by the same God they ignore. Pray for them, for they will be held accountable for what they do. It doesn't matter how rich or powerful these men and women get. They are still to be judged like the rest of us. In fact, their judgment is much more intense, for it is written...

  • Luke 12:48, "...For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required."

Some may feel this only applies to those ordained to stand in the sacred desk as preachers or pastors. But did not Paul declare those set up by the Lord to stand in government were ordained as well?

As we all know, Sunday Laws are about to be placed on the books. How soon? I have no clue as I am not going to play the role of a prophet when certain information has been purposely kept from God's people. Those that set dates are doing so simply to gain notoriety of self, while at the same time doing so in a way where our God can openly prove them false prophets. Their desire for fame and fortune far outweighs their desire to keep their tongues bridled. Being men and women of God, one would think they know that Jesus said in Matthew 24:36, "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." But they want to be placed on a pedestal if and when their so called prophetic utterance comes to be. Sadly, they have all failed. Sadder still is the fact many still follow after such false prophets even after they fail.

It's not just the time of the second coming we as men and women of God are to be kept from understanding at present time. It's any prophetic event. (See Revelation 10) Look at how the church messed up when they did know the exact dates. That prophesied great disappointment was indeed bitter in the belly as John prophesied it would be in Revelation 10:10. Think about it.. If we knew the exact dates of each prophecy after the 2300 year prophecy of Daniel chapter 8 ended in October of 1844, some of us may confuse the masses, and even more of us would relax and wait until the last minute to share our faith knowing we have a specified period of time left to work. Not knowing the day or the hour keeps us busy all the day long. Praise the Lord for knowing His children so well. He truly does know what's best for us.

The men and women of God that predict certain dates, and then of course fail, actually bless us with that much more fodder to evangelize to those seeking the real Truth regarding how close we really are. Jesus said in Matthew 24:11 that, "...many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." Looking around we see quite a few in all churches including the fallen SDA church holding the banner of a false prophet.

So... is there any evidence in Scripture that the people of God refused to obey Government when certain laws were passed they knew went against their God? Is there also evidence that if they disobeyed, would they be in sin due to the fact Paul's inspired words were to demand obedience?

  • Need I mention how Mordecai refused to break Commandment #2 by bowing to Haman, and was then blessed by God for refusing to keep such a man made law?
  • Need I mention how Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego also refused to break Commandment #2 when asked to bow to the king's golden idol and how they were spared the furnace of fire while actually inside the fire?
  • Need I mention how Daniel refused to break commandment #1 when asked not to pray to the Creator, and later was not eaten by the lions thanks to the angels the Lord sent that shut the lions mouth?

In all these cases and more, the Lord protected His faithful from certain death. Yes, many will die a martyrs death in the coming days. In fact many are finding this day has already arrived. But they will never lose their eternal life when they choose to please the Creator rather than His creation.

One last thing.. for those pastors out there that use Romans 13:1 to get people to obey the governing powers. Are you aware that Paul wrote that letter to the Romans WHILE HE WAS IN PRISON for disobeying Government? A lot of people are unaware of that fact. They assume because the pastors says something and then uses Scriptures to back it up that it's God will to keep Sunday holy, drink a beer, or murder their child. The pastors purposely don't tell the people that Paul also refused to follow the government whenever it went against the Government of Heaven. When the powers that be back in Jesus' day tried to manipulate the Truth regarding bowing to Rome over God by asking Jesus if He paid taxes to Rome, Jesus said...

  • Matthew 22:21, "...Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's."

Yes we have leaders ordained to rule and govern us. But we also have a God in heaven that supersedes any law they will make. If the law they write goes against the Law of God, we have God's Word on it that we must obey Him rather then man. If you keep that basic rule of thumb in mind, you will do well as a good and faithful servant.
