This book subscribes to the historicist view of prophecy and Revelation.
The author does an excellent job documenting the origin of Sunday worship.The Catholic church in it's own literature admits to changing the Sabbath to the veneral day of the Sun.This is explained in detail in this booklet.There is no scriptural basis for changing the Sabbath! On this point the book is correct.Dan.7:25 contains that prophecy.
The book re-hashes some dubious history of the Catholic church;the Waldenses,strict penalties for owning a Bible,the Inquisition,etc...
The definition and identification of the "Seal of God" and "Mark of the Beast" are interesting.The theory that the "Seal" is linked to the Sabbath makes sense when reading the Scriptures.
The identification of the mother of harlots is not new,the identification of the "image of the beast" is a new one for me.
Some of the points in this book are debatable however.Sacrificial law was indeed fulfilled by Yahusha's sacrifice. But that doesn't neccessarily translate into the seven Biblical festivals "no longer being required of us now". Zech.14:16 is an interesting passage regarding the Festival of Booths.
The 666 math with the pope is highly questionable also.
This book has a lot of Scriptural references and heavy quotations from Catholic literature. It is sure to upset many christians,Catholic and Protestant alike. There is a lot of truth in the pages,but some speculation also. The material on the Sabbath alone make this a book worth reading for anyone seeking the truth.
The book focusses on the identification of the beast descibed in Rev. 13; you know the one who prevents buying or selling by everyone who is not marked by the number 666. It identifies the beast as none other than the pope (actually all popes), based on a numerical calculation of "Vicarius Filii Dei" which it claims is a papal title. It goes on to say that the Catholic Church changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday (it in fact did) and re-numbered the 10 commandments.
The entire aim of the book is to convince the reader that world leaders will conspire with the pope to pass a "National Sunday Law" that requires all to worship on Sunday and therefore submit to the beast. Then the Second Coming?
The book is chock full of Bible verses, footnotes, diagrams, and calculations. I really was about to become scared -- but then something struck me from high school Latin; "Vicarius Filii Dei" didn't look right. It is supposed to mean "Vicar of the Son of God," but wouldn't that be "Vicarius de Filium Dei?" Heck, that's 1169 not 666. Suspecting a rat, I checked a list of papal titles, and the only title resembling the one sited is "Vicarius Christi" (Vicar of Christ -- adds to 208 if your counting).
Needless to say, I didn't buy the author's other arguments either.
I recommend reading this book to gain an insight into the beliefs of the Seventh Day Adventists, and to understand why they dislike the Catholic Church, most other Protestant denominations, and especially the papacy.
Save yourself the 4 bucks though, the Adventists hand these out like candy in major airports!
The author declares that it is evident that the first beast in Revelation is Rome, and by extension, the Roman Catholic church. The second beast is the United States of America, which has a great Constitution and Declaration of Independence, but will soon bring forth the apocalypse.
The author then goes through a particularly slanted view of history in which the Roman Catholic church unilaterally changes the day of assembling from Saturday to Sunday and begins killing everyone who disagrees with them. OK, so the church did kill those who disagreed with them, but there's second century testimony to Christians assembling on the first day.
Regardless, the author then returns to Revelation, declaring that the mark of God is the Sabbath observance, and therefore the mark of the beast is to worship on Sunday. He is convinced that forces exist in America to establish a national Sunday Law which will lead to the persecution of anyone who does not worship on Sunday.
The author maintains Evangelical positions on faith only and salvation but is hyper-Sabbatarian in outlook. He attempts in an appendix to dismiss the many examples of Christians assembling on the first day of the week and insists that Paul's custom of evangelizing in the synagogues among the Jews is evidence of Christians observing the Sabbath. No mention or comment is made regarding Hebrews 4:1-11 and its relevance to understanding the Sabbath. The author also promotes the suggestion that the Law of Moses can be divided into "moral" and "ceremonial" aspects, despite the fact that (a) the Bible never makes such a delineation of the Law, (b) the Law explicitly says that it's all or nothing (e.g.Read more ›
