4 Even now he [Satan] is at work. In accidents and calamities by sea and by land, in great CONFLAGRATIONS, in fierce TORNADOES and terrific HAILSTORMS, in TEMPESTS, FLOODS, CYCLONES, TIDAL WAVES, and EARTHQUAKES, in every place and in a thousand forms, Satan is exercising his power. He sweeps away the ripening harvest, and famine and distress follow. He imparts to the air a deadly taint, and thousands perish by the pestilence. These visitations are to become MORE AND MORE FREQUENT AND DISASTEROUS. GC Even now he [Satan] is at work.

These visitations are to become MORE AND MORE FREQUENT AND DISASTEROUS. GC Disasters lead to Sunday Laws

5 And then the great deceiver will persuade men that those who serve God are causing these evils…It will be declared that men are offending God by the violation of the SUNDAY sabbath; that this sin has brought calamities which will not cease until SUNDAY observance shall be strictly enforced… GC 590

7 Where is the Sunday Law in the Bible? And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had THE MARK, or the name OF THE BEAST, or the number of his name. Rev 13:17 The Beast is Roman Catholicism That system claims that its mark is the CHANGE of the Sabbath to Sunday

8 How would one receive the Mark of the Beast? If the light of truth has been presented to you, revealing the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and showing that there is no foundation in the Word of God for Sunday observance, and yet you still CLING TO THE FALSE SABBATH, REFUSING to keep holy the Sabbath which God calls "My holy day, you receive THE MARK OF THE BEAST. 7BC, p980 If the light of truth has been presented to you, revealing the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and showing that there is no foundation in the Word of God for Sunday observance, and yet you still CLING TO THE FALSE SABBATH, REFUSING to keep holy the Sabbath which God calls "My holy day, you receive THE MARK OF THE BEAST. 7BC, p980

9 What is the Mark of the Beast? The Mark of the Beast is observing the Sunday sabbath IN PLACE OF the seventh day Sabbath

10 What shall we do when Sunday rest is enforced? Dear Brother: I will try to answer your question as to what you should do in the case of SUNDAY LAWS being enforced. The light given me by the Lord at a time when we were expecting just such a crisis as you seem to be approaching, was that when the people were moved by a power from beneath to enforce Sunday observance, Seventh-day Adventists were to show their wisdom by REFRAINING FROM THEIR ORDINARY WORK on that day, devoting it to missionary effort. 9T 232

11 What shall we do when Sunday rest is enforced? One does NOT receive the MARK OF THE BEAST because he shows that he realizes the wisdom of keeping the peace by REFRAINING FROM WORK that gives offense, doing at the same time a work of the highest importance. 9T 232 One does NOT receive the MARK OF THE BEAST because he shows that he realizes the wisdom of keeping the peace by REFRAINING FROM WORK that gives offense, doing at the same time a work of the highest importance. 9T 232

12 What shall we do when Sunday rest is enforced? From the light that I have received, I see that if we would get the truth before the Southern people, we MUST NOT encourage the colored people to WORK ON SUNDAY…We are NOT TO make efforts to teach the Southern people to WORK ON SUNDAY. That which some of our brethren have written upon this point is not based upon right principles... SpM, p20-21 From the light that I have received, I see that if we would get the truth before the Southern people, we MUST NOT encourage the colored people to WORK ON SUNDAY…We are NOT TO make efforts to teach the Southern people to WORK ON SUNDAY. That which some of our brethren have written upon this point is not based upon right principles... SpM, p20-21

13 What should we do when Sunday rest is enforced?...some who are impulsive will take the opportunity to defy the Sunday laws, and by a presumptuous defiance of their oppressors they will bring to themselves much sorrow…You NEED NOT cut short your work by yourself LABORING ON SUNDAY. It would be better to take that day to instruct others in regard to the love of Jesus and true conversion. SpM, p some who are impulsive will take the opportunity to defy the Sunday laws, and by a presumptuous defiance of their oppressors they will bring to themselves much sorrow…You NEED NOT cut short your work by yourself LABORING ON SUNDAY. It would be better to take that day to instruct others in regard to the love of Jesus and true conversion. SpM, p20-21

14 What should we do when the Sunday Laws are passed? …the assumption of power on the part of our nation in the DECREE enforcing the papal sabbath will be a warning to us. It will then be time to LEAVE THE LARGE CITIES, PREPARATORY to leaving the smaller ones for retired homes in secluded places among the mountains. 4T …the assumption of power on the part of our nation in the DECREE enforcing the papal sabbath will be a warning to us.

15 What will happen to many during the Sunday Laws? MANY WILL BE MARTYRS for Christ's sake in standing in defense of the truth... You will not be tempted above what you are able to bear. Jesus bore all this and far more… 3SM MANY WILL BE MARTYRS for Christ's sake in standing in defense of the truth... You will not be tempted above what you are able to bear.

16 What will happen to many during the Sunday Laws? Those who are true to God will be menaced, denounced, proscribed. They WILL be BETRAYED both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends, even UNTO DEATH. [Luke 21:16.] PK 588 The scenes of the BETRAYAL, the rejection, and the crucifixion of Christ have been re-enacted, and WILL AGAIN be re-enacted on an IMMENSE scale. RH Jan

18 How will the Sunday Laws escalate? In the last great conflict of the controversy with Satan those who are loyal to God will see every earthly support cut off. Because they refuse to break His law in obedience to earthly powers, they will be FORBIDDEN TO BUY OR SELL. It will FINALLY be decreed that they shall be put to DEATH. See Rev. 13: DA See GC In the last great conflict of the controversy with Satan those who are loyal to God will see every earthly support cut off.

19 How will the Sunday Laws escalate? … religious and secular authorities have combined to ENFORCE THE OBSERVANCE OF SUNDAY, the persistent refusal of a small minority to yield to the popular demand will make them objects of universal execration…[John 11:50]. This argument will appear conclusive; and a DECREE will FINALLY be issued against those who hallow the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, denouncing them as deserving of the severest punishment and give the people liberty, after a certain time, to put them to DEATH.

26 What do the plagues lead to? I saw that the four angels would hold the four winds until Jesus' work was DONE in the sanctuary, and THEN will come the SEVEN LAST PLAGUES. These plagues enraged the wicked against the righteous; they thought that we had brought the judgments of God upon them, and that if they could rid the earth of us, the plagues would then be stayed.

A DECREE went forth to SLAY THE SAINTS, which caused them to cry day and night for deliverance. Early Writings 36-37

27 What is the Death Decree? The powers of earth, uniting to war against the commandments of God, will decree that no man may buy or sell, save he that has the mark of the beast, and, FINALLY, that whoever refuses to receive the mark SHALL BE PUT TO DEATH. [Rev 13:15, 17].

[Rev 13:15, 17]. The Spirit of Prophecy Volume Four, p422

28 When is the Death Decree Passed? When Jesus LEAVES THE MOST HOLY, His restraining Spirit is withdrawn from rulers and people. They are left to the control of evil angels. THEN such LAWS will be made by the counsel and direction of Satan, that unless time should be very short, NO FLESH COULD BE SAVED.

35 What is Jacobs Trouble? Jacob and Esau represent two classes. Jacob, the righteous; and Esau, the wicked. Jacob's night of wrestling and anguish represents the time of trouble through which the people of God must pass just prior to the second coming of Christ.

Jacob's night of wrestling and anguish represents the time of trouble through which the people of God must pass just prior to the second coming of Christ. Signs of the Times, Nov 27, 1879

37 Jacobs Trouble is the Time of Trouble such as never was Alas! for that day is great so that none is like it: it is even THE TIME OF JACOBS TROUBLE; but he shall be saved out of it." Daniel, in prophetic vision looking down to this point, says: "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people; and there shall be a TIME OF TROUBLE SUCH AS NEVER WAS since there was a nation even to that same time; and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

38 Jacobs Trouble is the Time of Trouble such as never was About four months since I had a vision of events all in the future. I saw the TIME OF TROUBLE, SUCH AS NEVER WAS. Jesus told me it was the TIME OF JACOBS TROUBLE, and that we should be delivered out of it by the voice of God.

Alas! for that day is great so that none is like it: it is even the TIME OF JACOBS TROUBLE; but HE SHALL BE SAVED out of it. [Jer 30:7] Daniel, in prophetic vision looking down to this point, says: "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people; and there shall be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time; and at that time thy people shall be DELIVERED, EVERY ONE that shall be found written in the book. [Dan 12:1] ST 27 Nov. 1879

42 What do the saints do in the Time of Trouble? IN THE TIME OF TROUBLE WE ALL FLED from the cities and villages, but were pursued by the wicked, who entered the houses of the saints with a sword. They raised the sword to kill us, but it broke, and fell as powerless as a straw. Then we all cried day and night for deliverance, and the cry came up before God. EW 34

43 Where will the saints flee to? As the DECREE issued by the various rulers of Christendom against commandment keepers shall withdraw the protection of government and abandon them to those who desire their destruction, the people of God will FLEE from the cities and villages and associate together in companies, dwelling in the most desolate and solitary places. Many will find refuge in the strongholds of the MOUNTAINS. GC 626

44 When do we flee to the mountains? And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the END COME. When ye therefore shall SEE THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea FLEE INTO THE MOUNTAINS: Matthew 24:14-16 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the END COME. When ye therefore shall SEE THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea FLEE INTO THE MOUNTAINS: Matthew 24:14-16

45 At the Death Decree the saints flee Though a general DECREE has fixed the time when commandment keepers may be put to DEATH, their enemies will in some cases anticipate the decree, and before the time specified, will endeavor to take their lives. But none can pass the mighty guardians stationed about every faithful soul. Some are assailed in their FLIGHT from the cities and villages; but the swords raised against them break and fall powerless as a straw. Others are defended by angels in the form of men of war. Great Controversy, p631 Though a general DECREE has fixed the time when commandment keepers may be put to DEATH, their enemies will in some cases anticipate the decree, and before the time specified, will endeavor to take their lives.

55 Time of Trouble after Probations close 5T 212 "there shallbe a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, everyone that shall be found written in the book." When this time of trouble comes, every case is decided; there is no longer probation, no longer mercy for the impenitent. The seal of the living God is upon His people. This small remnant, unable to defend themselves in the deadly conflict with the powers of earth that are marshaled by the dragon host, make God their defense. The decree has been passed by the highest earthly authority that they shall worship the beast and receive his mark under pain of persecution and death. May God help His people now, for what can they then do in such a fearful conflict without His assistance!

56 When during the plagues is the death decree passed? "There fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast… The sea "became as the blood of a dead man…the rivers and fountains of waters... became blood." Terrible as these inflictions are, God's justice stands fully vindicated. The angel of God declares: "Thou art righteous, O Lord,…because Thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and Thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy." Revelation 16:2- 6. By CONDEMNING the people of God to DEATH, they have as truly incurred the guilt of their blood as if it had been shed by their hands. Great Controversy, p627

57 Isnt the Abomination of Desolation the Sunday Law? As the siege of Jerusalem by the Roman armies was the signal for flight to the Judean Christians, so the assumption of power on the part of our nation [U.S.A.] in the DECREE enforcing the papal sabbath will be a warning to us. It will then be time to leave the large cities, preparatory to leaving the smaller ones for retired homes in secluded places among the mountains. GC

68 Surrounding the Church The DECREE will go forth that they must disregard the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and honor the first day, or LOSE THEIR LIVES; but they will not yield, and trample under their feet the Sabbath of the Lord, and honor an institution of papacy. Satan's host and wicked men will SURROUND them, and exult over them, because there will seem to be no way of escape for them. Maranatha, p269

He claims to be THE PRINCE who is the rightful owner of the world and whose inheritance has been unlawfully wrested from him. He represents himself to his deluded subjects as a REDEEMER, assuring them that his power has brought them forth from their graves and that he is about to rescue them from the most cruel tyranny.

He proposes to lead them against the camp of the saints and to take possession of the City of God…At last the order to advance is given, and the countless host moves on--AN ARMY SUCH AS NEVER WAS summoned by earthly conquerors, such as the combined forces of all ages since war began on earth could never equal. Satan, the mightiest of warriors, leads the van…By command of Jesus, the gates of the New Jerusalem are closed, and the armies of Satan SURROUND THE CITY and make ready for the onset. GC

77 Surrounding the Church As JACOB was threatened with death by his angry brother, so the people of God will be in peril from the wicked who are seeking to destroy them. And as the patriarch wrestled all night for deliverance from the hand of Esau, so the righteous will cry to God day and night for deliverance from the enemies that SURROUND them. Patriarchs & Prophets, p201

78 The Church Flees at the Death Decree 16 Then let them which be in Judaea FLEE INTO THE MOUNTAINS… As the DECREE issued by the various rulers of Christendom against commandment keepers shall withdraw the protection of government and abandon them to those who desire their DESTRUCTION, the people of God will FLEE from the cities and villages and associate together in companies, dwelling in the most desolate and solitary places. Many will find refuge in the strongholds of the MOUNTAINS. GC 626

79 Christs Concern for His People. Let them which be in Judea flee… 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in winter, neither on the sabbath day: Let them which be in Judea flee… 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in winter, neither on the sabbath day: START PRAYING!

80 How we will Flee if Surrounded? Let them which be in Judea fleeFLEE… Though a general DECREE has fixed the time when commandment keepers may be put to DEATH, their enemies will in some cases anticipate the decree, and before the time specified, will endeavor to take their lives. But none can pass the mighty guardians stationed about every faithful soul. Some are assailed in their FLIGHT from the cities and villages; but the swords raised against them break and fall powerless as a straw. Others are DEFENDED BY ANGELS in the form of men of war. GC 631

81 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!. 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!. Immediate Flight The flight is to be IMMEDIATE. Terrible destruction will occur any moment The flight is to be IMMEDIATE. Terrible destruction will occur any moment

82 The Tribulation is Jacobs Trouble About four months since, I had a vision of events, all in the future. And I saw the time of trouble, such as never was, - Jesus told me it was THE TIME OF JACOBS TROUBLE, and that we should all be delivered out of it by the VOICE OF GOD.

The Day-Star, Mar 14, For THEN shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 21 For THEN shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

83 The Tribulation - Jacobs Trouble These are they which came out of GREAT TRIBULATION; they have passed through the time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation; they have endured the anguish of THE TIME OF JACOBS TROUBLE; they have stood without an intercessor through the final outpouring of God's judgments. But they have been delivered...

In DIFFERENT PARTS of the earth, Satan will manifest himself among men as a majestic being of dazzling brightness, resembling the description of the Son of God given by John in the Revelation. (Rev 1:13-15). The glory that surrounds him is unsurpassed by anything that mortal eyes have yet beheld. The shout of triumph rings out upon the air: "Christ has come! Christ has come!"

87 23 THEN if any man shall say unto you, LO HERE IS CHRIST, or there; believe it not. In Various Places SATAN HIMSELF will personate Christ, declaring that he is the Son of God. One will say, Christ is HERE; another, He is THERE; and still another that He is SOMEWHERE ELSE. 8MR 346

88 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great SIGNS and WONDERS; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great SIGNS and WONDERS; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. Satan... will come personating Jesus Christ, working mighty MIRACLES; and men will fall down and worship him as Jesus Christ. We shall be commanded to worship this being, whom the world will glorify as Christ. What shall we do? Tell them that Christ has warned us against just such a foe, who is man's worst enemy….

IF it Were Possible The form of the sentence in Greek implies that it is actually impossible for Satan to deceive them. Just as soon as the people of God are sealed in their foreheads--it is not any seal or mark that can be seen, but a settling into the truth, both intellectually and spiritually, so THEY CANNOT BE MOVED.

90 Satan sees that he is about to lose his case. He cannot sweep in the whole world. He makes one LAST DESERATE effort to overcome the faithful by deception. He does this in personating Christ... One effort more, and then Satan's LAST DEVICE is employed. He hears the unceasing cry for Christ to come, for Christ to deliver them. This LAST STRATEGY is to personate Christ, and make them think their prayers are answered. BUT THIS ANSWERS TO THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION STANDING IN THE HOLY PLACE.

91 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is IN THE DESERT; go not forth: behold, he is IN THE SECRET CHAMBERS; believe it not. Here and There …the great deceiver will make it appear that Christ has come. In DIFFERENT PARTS of the earth, Satan will manifest himself among men as a majestic being of dazzling brightness, resembling the description of the Son of God given by John in the Revelation.

93 The Mysterious Dark Day 29 IMMEDIATELLY AFTER THE TRIBULATION of those days shall the SUN be darkened, and the MOON shall not give her light, and the STARS shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:...I saw the TIME OF TROUBLE, such as never was, - Jesus told me it was the time of JACOBS TROUBLE, and that we should all be delivered out of it by the VOICE OF GOD. The Day-Star, Mar 14, 1846

94 Signs in the Future December 16, 1848, the Lord gave me a view of the shaking of the powers of the heavens. I saw that when the Lord said heaven, in giving the signs recorded by Matthew, Mark, and Luke, He meant heaven, and when He said earth He meant earth. The powers of heaven are the sun, moon, and stars. They rule in the heavens. The powers of earth are those that rule on the earth. The powers of heaven WILL BE shaken at the voice of God. Then the sun, moon, and stars WILL BE moved out of their places. They WILL not pass away, but be shaken by the VOICE OF GOD. EW 41

95 Future Signs War, and rumors of war, sword, famine, and pestilence are first to shake the powers of earth, then the voice of God WILL shake the sun, moon, and stars, and this earth also. EW 41

96 Will be… Now, there are many signs that WILL take place before the coming of the Son of man, but when the white cloud is seen, this will be the sign of the coming of the Son of man. There WILL BE signs in the sun, moon, and stars, and the nations in perplexity. 1SAt 50

97 The Coming of Christ The VOICE OF GOD is heard from heaven, declaring the day and hour of Jesus' coming, and delivering the everlasting covenant to His people. Like peals of loudest thunder His words roll through the earth. The ISRAEL of God stand listening, with their eyes fixed upward. Their countenances are lighted up with His glory, and shine as did the face of Moses when he came down from Sinai. The wicked cannot look upon them. And when the blessing is pronounced on those who have honored God by keeping His Sabbath holy, there is a mighty shout of victory. GC

98 The Coming of Christ Soon there appears in the east a small black cloud, about half the size of a man's hand. It is the cloud which surrounds the Saviour and which seems in the distance to be shrouded in darkness. The people of God know this to be THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN. In solemn silence they gaze upon it as it draws nearer the earth, becoming lighter and more glorious, until it is a great white cloud, its base a glory like consuming fire, and above it the rainbow of the covenant. Jesus rides forth as a mighty conqueror. Not now a "Man of Sorrows," to drink the bitter cup of shame and woe, He comes, victor in heaven and earth, to judge the living and the dead. GC

99 The Sign of the Son of Man 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
