Supreme  Court  Decides - SUNDAY  LAW  IS  CONSTITUTIONAL!  quotes

1)    The following States have Sunday (Blue) Laws: Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and West Virginia!  These restrictive Sunday laws were challenged by 4 lawsuits within 3 of these States as being unconstitutional.
     In 1961, the Supreme Court decided and Roman Catholic Chief Justice Earl Warren declared in all 4 of these cases that the law making Sunday a uniform day of rest from secular activities did not violate the Constitution, even though it favored a rest day considered holy by a majority of religions.

                 Case #1: - Margaret M. McGowan vs State of Maryland, 366 U.S. 420, docket #: 8 (May 29,1961), at http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?navby=CASE&court=US&vol=366&page=420, accessed 4-4-19.

                 Case #3: - Two Guys from Harrison Allentown (Pennsyvania), Inc. vs McGinley, 366 U.S. 582, docket #: 36 (May 29, 1961), at http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=US&vol=366&invol=582, accessed 4-4-19.

                 Case #4: - Braunfeld vs Brown, 366 U.S. 599, docket #: 67 (May 29, 1961), at http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?navby=CASE&court=US&vol=366&page=599, accessed 4-4-19.

2)     The Court's reasoning behind declaring these Sunday laws to be constitutional was:
     “(c)...In the light of the evolution of our Sunday Closing Laws through the centuries, and of their more or less recent emphasis upon secular considerations, it is concluded that, as presently written and administered, most of them, at least, are of a secular rather than of a religious character, and that presently they bear no relationship to establishment of religion, as those words are used in the Constitution of the United States. Pp. 431-444.
     “(d) The present purpose and effect of most of our Sunday Closing Laws is to provide a uniform day of rest for all citizens; and the fact that this day is Sunday, a day of particular significance for the dominant Christian sects, does not bar the State from achieving its secular goals. Pp. 444-445.
     “(e) After engaging in the close scrutiny demanded of it when First Amendment liberties are at issue, this Court accepts the determination of the State Supreme Court that the present purpose and effect of the statute here involved is not to aid religion but to set aside a day of rest and recreation. Pp. 445-449.” Margaret M. McGowan vs State of Maryland, 366 U.S. 420, docket #: 8 (May 29,1961), at http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?navby=CASE&court=US&vol=366&page=420, accessed 4-4-19).

     Since the Constitution has jurisdiction over all the United States, then this Supreme Court decision applies to every State in this Union!  This decision means 3 startling things:

1) - Current Sunday Laws in various States can be immediately enforced today without any valid legal opposition.  This means that the Sunday (Blue) Laws in 20 different States - over 1/3 of America - can be immediately enforced!

2) - Sunday Laws can be enacted and enforced without any valid legal opposition throughout every other State and Territory of the United States today!  In fact, the US Territory of Puerto Rico has already passed and is enforcing a Sunday Law!

3) - A national Sunday Law can also be enacted and enforced without any valid legal opposition throughout the United States of America and all Territories it governs!

3)     Bible prophecy predicts that the United States of America will not only force Americans, but the whole world to receive this Mark of the Beast.

     “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.  And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.  And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 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.” Revelation 13:11-17.

4)    It is not just the United States who will be behind this mass bloodshed, but so will the New Age Movement of Lucifer in establishing his Plan of a One World Religion and a One World Order.

     Christopher Hyatt, who is the head of the spiritualistic secret society called Order of the Golden Dawn, states:
     "I perceive, on a mass scale, that the New Age is not going to come into being as so many people believe and wish to believe. I see it as requiring a...lot of blood, disruption, chaos and pain for a mass change to occur." Magical Blend, Issue #16, 1987, p 22.

     The Maitreya, or a false christ of the New Age Movement, states:
     "Man must change or die; there is no other course." Reappearance of the Christ, p 246, by Benjamin Creme.

     All who refuse to obey the command of the United States with the backing of the One World Church and One World Government to worship on Sunday will be considered antagonistic to this New World Order and will be targeted for removal out of it!
     "Those who fall back to old-time religions are trying to hide in the past...Such timidity is unacceptable. We have to face the world as it is, doing what is necessary to save it....A growing number of people...are sponsoring a backlash against the wave of religious fundamental fanaticism...The right course to take is that which will lead to a new world of unity and world law." Solar Man, p 244-247, by Thomas Ehrenzeller.

     Just how many people are estimated as needing to be killed in order to bring about this Plan of Lucifer?

     New Age advocate, Barbara Marx Hubbard states:
     "No worldly peace can prevail until the self-centered members of the planetary body [Christians] either change or die. That is the choice....Destruction...[to] those who refuse to be born into God-centered, universal life....Only the God-centered will survive to inherit the powers of a universal species....
     "It must be done for the sake of the future of the whole. So be it; be prepared for the selection process which is now beginning....
     "We will use whatever means we must to make this act of destruction as quick and painless as possible to the one half of the world who are capable of evolving." Barbara Marx Hubbard in Prophecy in the News, April, 1990; quoted in Globalism, p 2-4, by Raymond Blanton.

     Since only "one half" of the world's population are estimated as being capable of evolving into this One World Order, then the other half must be targeted for destruction!  As the population of the world is estimated today at close to 8 billion, then this means that nearly 4 billion people are targeted to be murdered in order to establish Lucifer’s New World Order!

5)    How could people be led to participate in the mass murder of such a staggering amount of their fellow human beings?  It is because they believe in the false doctrine of the immortality of the soul - that when someone dies, they do not really cease to exist, but they just have another chance to accept the Plan and thus be accepted back into the physical world. This belief allows them to accept that this plan for mass murder is really not something to fear as being evil, but is instead something desirable in order to more quickly bring about their Plan.

     The Bible states that death is just like sleep (see John 11:11-14; 1 Corinthians 11:30, 15:20); that the dead know not anything (Ecclesiastes 9:5-6); that all the dead will be resurrected to either eternal life because their actions were judged to be good and founded in the Lord Jesus (see John 5:28-29; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Luke 14:14), or they will be resurrected to suffer the lake of fire and eternal death because their actions were judged to be evil and founded in the devil (see John 5:28-29; 2 Peter 2:9; Revelation 20:11-15).  This truth reveals that mankind only has one life to live, not many lives, and therefore there is only one chance to gain eternal life, not many chances.
     “...it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”. Hebrews 9:27.

     “...behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:2.  

6)    Because of the belief in the immortality of the soul, the murder of any who refuse to keep Sunday holy and receive the Mark, and who oppose the Plan for a One World Order, is justified as being something good.
     "Death is not a disaster to be feared; the work of the Destroyer is not cruel or undesirable...therefore, there is much destruction permitted by the Custodians of The Plan and much evil turned into good." Alice Bailey, quoted in Whole Life Times, Winter, 1986-1987, p 57, 71-72.

     This means that persecution and "a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation" (see 2 Timothy 3:12; Daniel 12:1) is soon to occur! This planned murder of nearly 4 billion people today will more than rival the persecution of the Christians during any time in the history of this world.  It will be greater than the millions of Early Christians which suffered and died by the hand of the Romans; greater than the 50 million Protestants which suffered and died by the hand of the Papacy during the Dark Ages (see The Other End of the World, p 127, 191, by Roger Rusk); greater than the 1-3 million French people which suffered and died during the French Revolution (see The French Revolution, p 419, by Nesta Webster).

     Those who choose to follow Lucifer's Plan will be blinded to think that their long hoped for Millennial New Age of peace and tranquility will not become a reality until all the people of the world compromise and change their beliefs, or are eliminated.
     Benjamin Creme readily admits that
     "Man must share [in our belief] or die....
     "Those who remain adamant will eventually find themselves in the minority and will have to live with it or withdraw from this life....
     "They will find it impossible, however, to halt the momentum of change, and eventually will have to adapt to the new conditions...the alternative is annihilation." Maitreya's Mission, p 109, 128, by Benjamin Creme.

7)    The issue on which day we choose to worship God will be one of the main deciding factors on whether we will receive the seal or mark or sign of God (Ezekiel 20:12, 20) and thus receive eternal life, or whether we will receive the seal or mark or sign of the Beast and thus receive the plagues and eternal death!

     God clearly and unmistakably warns all:
     "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name" Revelation 14:9-11.

     In contrast to those who are lost because they worship on Lucifer’s day of the sun and receive the Beast’s Mark, Revelation pictures those who are saved as saints:
     "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus". Revelation 14:12.

     The day we choose for worship God on reflects our choice of sides in the final battle between Christ and Satan. Choosing to worship on Saturday – the Bible Sabbath (Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 20:8-11), shows that we are following God and desire to be part of His Heavenly Kingdom, and that we refuse to be a follower of Lucifer, or be part of his New World Order.  But choosing to worship on Sunday – Lucifer's sabbath, shows that we are following Satan and desire to be part of his New World Order, and that we refuse to be a follower of God, or be part of His Heavenly Kingdom!

8)    Every single person of the earth will be brought to decide for Lucifer and his spurious Sunday sabbath, or for the God of Heaven and His true Saturday Sabbath, and compromise will be impossible!  This is an either/or decision!  And the apostate Roman Catholic Church clearly understands this fact of truth!
     "The arguments...are firmly grounded on the word of God, and having been closely studied with the Bible in hand, leave no escape for the conscientious Protestant except the abandonment of Sunday worship and the return to Saturday, commanded by their teacher, the Bible, or, unwilling to abandon the tradition of the Catholic Church, which enjoins the keeping of Sunday, and which they have accepted in direct opposition to their teacher, the Bible, consistently accept her (the Catholic Church) in all her teachings. Reason and common sense demand the acceptance of one or the other of these alternatives: either Protestantism and the keeping holy of Saturday, or Catholicism and the keeping holy of Sunday. Compromise is impossible." James Cardinal Gibbons, in Catholic Mirror, December 23, 1893.

9)    As this is true, what should God's people be doing NOW just before probation closes for the world, and the plagues of God are poured out in order to prepare themselves for this time of fiery trial and tests (see 1 Peter 1:3-9, 4:12; Malachi 3:3; Titus 2:13-14; Daniel 12:10)?  We should now be asking forgiveness and overcoming every sin registered against our names in the record books of heaven (see Philippians 2:12-16; Ecclesiastes 12:13-14; Daniel 7:10; Revelation 3:5, 20:12-15)!   We should now be learning all the precious truth of God's word, riveting it in our memory by practicing these truths; putting away all  differences between us, evil-surmising, rumors and every wicked thing keeping us from loving one another!
     We should now be unitedly spreading the last message of mercy of the loud cry found in Revelation 14 and 18 and calling people away from being united with Lucifer and from belonging to any of his fallen Babylonish churches and organizations, so that they can become one with God through Christ's righteousness and have eternal life (2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Revelation 18:1-5)!

     How many people will give in and follow the great Sunday-rest lie of Lucifer and go along with his Plan of One World?  Nearly the whole human race!  Only a small remnant will not succumb to the extreme pressures to give up God and His Bible Sabbath truth (see Revelation 12:17; 1 Peter 4:18; Matthew 7:13-14; Revelation 22:11-14). Only a few will refuse to accept Lucifer’s great lie because they hold on to God's truth to the end; but what a glorious future these faithful few remnant will receive for their faithfulness!
     These faithful few 144,000, along with those faithful redeemed raised from their graves (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17), will be able to spend eternity with God and His Son Jesus in Heaven and then on the earth made new without sin and its curse ever rising again, and what a glorious reward it will be (see Revelation 15:2-3, 21:1-27, 22:1-5)!

     Those who already know these truths must begin now to spread these truths of God truth to every nation, kindred, tongue and people, because it will be nearly impossible to do so when all the forces of darkness break loose! Proclaiming God's truth is our God-given duty to our fellow man, and we cannot shift our duty to another. And if we should choose not to give this glorious truth to those who sit in darkness without knowing these things (see Isaiah 60:2), then some will be left in that darkness and possibly lost through our neglect!
