Jeremiah 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
Proverbs 2:19 None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.
Friends let’s have some small but important study here: What is hypocrisy?
Hypocrisy according to my dictionary I’m using(Which yours too will give similar meaning).
- An expression of agreement that is not supported by real conviction
= lip service
- Insincerity by virtue of pretending to have qualities or beliefs that you do not really have
Now that’s what drama really means; pretending to be someone you’re not. Jesus rebuked the Pharisees of their hypocrisy. They appear before men as holy and law abiding but in reality they do not abide in God’s love they teach.
The reason majority of people are deceived is they DO NOT STUDY GOD’S WORD to know the truth for themselves.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Who would ever thought Protestants and Popery would come together???
The very existence of Protestantism was to be in PROTEST against the erroneous dogmas of the Papal Roman Catholic Church. Sunday Sacredness, Immortality of the Soul, Infant Baptism, Original Sin, Purgatory, Indulgences, Eucharist, and so many other false doctrines. And there can be true unity ONLY if all these erroneous doctrines are discarded by the Papacy but does the Papacy still holds Sunday as their mark of authority? Yes. Does the Papacy still bapstize infants? Yes. Does the Papacy still uphold the dogmas of purgatory, Indulgences? Yes. Then how can Protestants unite with Papacy??
The pioneers of Protestantism who defended God’s word with their blood and life( John Huss, Luther, Wycliffe, Jerome, William Tyndale, and others)would turn in their graves if they were to have knowledge of Protestantism clasping hands with papacy!
As we found the meaning of hypocrisy, The Papal Church is pretending to be what she’s not. The Papal Church can never truly be in harmony with Protestantism. Papacy only appear to accept Protestantism if only her goals can be achieved.
As foretold in Bible prophecy The first beast( the Papal Church ) will make a hypocritical agreement with the Second beast( United States of America which is the birthplace of Protestantism ) to command all to worship on Sunday which is the mark of the beast(Papal Church).
Accepting this mark will place you in a position where you will receive the seven last plagues and perdition. Sunday worship is not yet the mark of the beast so everyone has the chance to come out of it now before it’s too late.
God loves you, we love you and your salvation is the most precious thing you should ever think about.
Don’t join this ongoing concert between the Man of Sin(Popery) and Apostate Protestants but be a true Soldier under the banner of Prince Emmanuel.
Answer God’s call before it’s too late:
“Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”Revelation 18:4-5
2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Your Salvation is your OWN CHOICE dear friend. Make A Wise Choice!!!
Protestantism and Catholicism Act in Concert
Protestantism shall give the hand of fellowship to the Roman power.Then there will be a law against the Sabbath of God’s creation, and then it is that God will do His “strange work” in the earth.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:910 (1886). LDE 130.1
How the Roman church can clear herself from the charge of idolatry we cannot see…. And this is the religion which Protestants are beginning to look upon with so much favor, and which will eventually be united with Protestantism. This union will not, however, be effected by a change in Catholicism, for Rome never changes. She claims infallibility. It is Protestantism that will change. The adoption of liberal ideas on its part will bring it where it can clasp the hand of Catholicism.—The Review and Herald, June 1, 1886.LDE 130.2
The professed Protestant world will form a confederacy with the man of sin, and the church and the world will be in corrupt harmony.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:975(1891). LDE 130.3
Romanism in the Old World, and apostate Protestantism in the New, will pursue a similar course toward those who honor all the divine precepts.—The Great Controversy, 616 (1911). LDE 130.4
Sunday Laws Honor Rome
When the leading churches of the United States, uniting upon such points of doctrine as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and to sustain their institutions, then Protestant America will have formed an image of the Roman hierarchy, and the infliction of civil penalties upon dissenters will inevitably result…. LDE 131.1
The enforcement of Sundaykeeping on the part of Protestant churches is an enforcement of the worship of the papacy…. LDE 131.2
In the very act of enforcing a religious duty by secular power, the churches would themselves form an image to the beast; hence the enforcement of Sundaykeeping in the United States would be an enforcement of the worship of the beast and his image.—The Great Controversy, 445, 448, 449 (1911). LDE 131.3
When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near.—Testimonies for the Church 5:451(1885). LDE 131.4
Rome Will Regain Her Lost Supremacy
As we approach the last crisis it is of vital moment that harmony and unity exist among the Lord’s instrumentalities. The world is filled with storm and war and variance. Yet under one head—the papal power—the people will unite to oppose God in the person of His witnesses. This union is cemented by the great apostate.—Testimonies for the Church 7:182 (1902). LDE 131.5
Laws enforcing the observance of Sunday as the Sabbath will bring about a national apostasy from the principles of republicanism upon which the government has been founded. The religion of the papacy will be accepted by the rulers, and the law of God will be made void.—Manuscript Releases 7:192 (1906). LDE 132.1
A day of great intellectual darkness has been shown to be favorable to the success of popery. It will yet be demonstrated that a day of great intellectual light is equally favorable for its success.—The Spirit of Prophecy 4:390 (1884). LDE 132.2
In the movements now in progress in the United States to secure for the institutions and usages of the church the support of the state, Protestants are following in the steps of papists.Nay, more, they are opening the door for the papacy to regain in Protestant America the supremacy which she has lost in the Old World.—The Great Controversy, 573 (1911). LDE 132.3
A National Sunday Law Means National Apostasy
To secure popularity and patronage, legislators will yield to the demand for a Sunday law By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness…. LDE 132.4
As the approach of the Roman armies was a sign to the disciples of the impending destruction of Jerusalem, so may this apostasy be a sign to us that the limit of God’s forbearance is reached.—Testimonies for the Church 5:451 (1885). LDE 133.1
We must take a firm stand that we will not reverence the first day of the week as the Sabbath, for it is not the day that was blessed and sanctified by Jehovah, and in reverencing Sunday we should place ourselves on the side of the great deceiver LDE 133.2
When the law of God has been made void and apostasy becomes a national sin, the Lord will work in behalf of His people.—Selected Messages 3:388 (1889). LDE 133.3
The people of the United States have been a favored people, but when they restrict religious liberty, surrender Protestantism, and give countenance to popery, the measure of their guilt will be full, and “national apostasy” will be registered in the books of heaven.—The Review and Herald, May 2, 1893. LDE 133.4
