WORLD CRISIS FORETOLD –CIVIL AND DIVINE LAWS ENDANGERED-part 25-

SATAN COMMANDEERS THE WORLD

THROUGH Spiritualism, Satan appears as a benefactor of the race, healing the diseases of the people, and professing to present a new and more exalted system of religious faith; but at the same time he works as a destroyer.  His temptations are leading multitudes to ruin. Intemperance dethrones reason; sensual indulgence, strife, and bloodshed follow.  Satan delights in war, for it excites the worst passions of the soul and then sweeps into eternity its victims steeped in vice and blood.  It is his object to incite the nations to war against one another, for he can thus divert the minds of the people from the work of preparation to stand in the day of God. Satan works through the elements also to garner his harvest of unprepared souls.

He has studied the secrets of the laboratories of nature, and he uses all his power to control the elements as far as God allows. When he was suffered to afflict Job, how quickly flocks and herds, servants, houses, children, were swept away, one trouble succeeding another as in a moment. It is God that shields His creatures and hedges them in from the power of the destroyer.  But the Christian world have shown contempt for the Law of Jehovah; and the Lord will do just what He has declared that He would- He will withdraw His blessings from the earth and remove His protecting care from those who are rebelling against His Law and teaching and forcing others to do the same.  Satan has control of all whom God does not especially guard.  He will favor and prosper some in order to further his own designs, and he will bring trouble upon others and lead men to believe that it is God who is afflicting them.

While appearing to the children of men as a great physician who can heal all their maladies, he will bring disease and disaster, until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation.

TROUBLERS IDENTIFIED

AND then the great deceiver will persuade men that those who serve God are causing these evils.  The class that has provoked the displeasure of Heaven will charge all their troubles upon those whose obedience to God’s commandments is a perpetual reproof to transgressors. 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; and that those who present the claims of the fourth commandment, thus destroying reverence for Sunday, are troublers of the people, preventing their restoration to divine favor and temporal prosperity. 

The miracle-working power manifested through Spiritualism will exert its influence against those who choose to obey God rather than men.  Communications from the spirits will declare that God has sent them to convince the rejecters of Sunday of their error, affirming that the laws of the land should be obeyed as the law of God. They will lament the great wickedness in the world and second the testimony of religious teachers that the degraded state of morals is caused by the desecration of Sunday.  Great will be the indignation excited against all who refuse to accept their testimony.

Sunday is our mark of authority. The church is above the Bible, and this transference of sabbath observance is proof of that fact” (The Catholic Record, London, Ontario, September 1, 1923)
