The G7, the Pope, and the Climate Club
By Pastor Hal Mayer
Welcome to Keep the Faith Ministry once again. Thank you for joining me today as we explore how a global government is being developed to push for a Sunday law. It’s not directly advocating a Sunday law at the moment. But when you think of how Bible prophecy places the Sunday law in such a prominent position, you can begin to see that everything the pope does is with the intention to affect a Sunday law.
Let us pray. Our Father in heaven, we are living at the apex of history. Prophecy is unfolding at a rapid pace. Men are seeking to consolidate their power and create an empire that is global in nature. We are nothing to them. But to you we are precious. Please protect us and give us light and power. And send us your presence through your Holy Spirit as we study today. In Jesus name, amen.
Turn with me in your Bibles to Revelation 13:11 and 15-17.
“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 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.”
This prophecy is about the United States and its hegemony and its ability to dictate the last area of independence of the human being. And it’s about the loss of religious freedom and the enforcement of Sunday worship. How do I know? The Papacy has a history of imposing strict Sunday laws upon its subjects for centuries. During the Middle Ages she demanded and implemented Sunday laws that were imposed by the kings and rulers of the world. She has much experience with this. She wants to get all the world to worship her at least symbolically. And she will use national leaders to persecute those who refuse. And she works closely with the United States. She has been working behind the scenes, and is stealthily, secretly, without getting her fingerprints on the process, developing her credibility and her power. Here is the statement you may have read many times before from Great Controversy, page 581.
“God’s word has given warning of the impending danger; let this be unheeded, and the Protestant world will learn what the purposes of Rome really are, only when it is too late to escape the snare. She is silently growing into power. Her doctrines are exerting their influence in legislative halls, in the churches, and in the hearts of men. She is piling up her lofty and massive structures in the secret recesses of which her former persecutions will be repeated. Stealthily and unsuspectedly she is strengthening her forces to further her own ends when the time shall come for her to strike. All that she desires is vantage ground, and this is already being given her. We shall soon see and shall feel what the purpose of the Roman element is. Whoever shall believe and obey the word of God will thereby incur reproach and persecution.”
The Protestant world will applaud Rome’s efforts to impose a Sunday law on everyone, because they will be so tired of the secular attitude and aggression. They will also applaud the pope for advocating a Sunday law because they are in harmony with him through the ecumenical movement, and through what the Bible calls fornication (illicit relationship) with the kings of the earth. They have been seeking this harmony for many years. They will flatter themselves that they are in unity and that the pope respects them. So, they will not object, or condemn the Sunday law. Here is a statement from Great Controversy, page 444 that tells us the realities that we face today.
“The wide diversity of belief in the Protestant churches is regarded by many as decisive proof that no effort to secure a forced uniformity can ever be made. But there has been for years, in churches of the Protestant faith, a strong and growing sentiment in favor of a union based upon common points of doctrine. To secure such a union, the discussion of subjects upon which all were not agreed—however important they might be from a Bible standpoint—must necessarily be waived.”
Unity with Rome is something that the Catholic and Protestant churches have been working on for a long time. And in recent years they have made significant public progress in cementing together a way forward in unity that will result, eventually, in a Sunday law. They are fulfilling prophecy right now by forming the image to the beast described in Revelation 13:15.
“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.”
That image to the beast has not received life yet because it hasn’t made laws restricting religion, particularly Sunday laws. But it very soon will rise to become a living beast that speaks as the dragon and persecutes those who dissent. This dragon is the enemy of all mankind made in the image of God. It represents the devil and does his bidding and will have teeth to persecute.
America is the only nation (beast) that started out like a lamb providing religious liberty and inalienable liberties of all kinds given by God, but will become like a dragon, removing these liberties. America is going to become aggressive against Sabbath keepers. Make no mistake about it. Here it is from Testimonies for the church, Vol. 5, page 451.
“By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. 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.”
Here it is from Great Controversy, page 445. “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.”
The Protestants and Catholics will work together to take away the liberties that are guaranteed in the Constitution of the United States. But Rome is under a disguise. She has not changed at the core. She is the same as she was in past centuries. Again, from Great Controversy page 571 we read.
“The Roman Church now presents a fair front to the world, covering with apologies her record of horrible cruelties. She has clothed herself in Christlike garments; but she is unchanged. Every principle of the papacy that existed in past ages exists today. The doctrines devised in the darkest ages are still held. Let none deceive themselves. The papacy that Protestants are now so ready to honor is the same that ruled the world in the days of the Reformation, when men of God stood up, at the peril of their lives, to expose her iniquity. She possesses the same pride and arrogant assumption that lorded it over kings and princes, and claimed the prerogatives of God. Her spirit is no less cruel and despotic now than when she crushed out human liberty and slew the saints of the Most High.”
Rome works with an unseen hand and is very patient. She works through national government leaders. She works through institutions that are doing works of charity. So, when she speaks people listen. And when she talks about climate change and the need to fix it, global leaders take their cues, because her goals align with theirs. You may wonder how on earth she’ll get everybody in unity. Well, it’s because she offers them what they want, money and power. And the greatest of these is power. They’ve taken some time to work out how they can do it, but they now have the formula to make it work. They have been working on ways to take more power over the planet. Gradually, they have done so. The pandemic showed them how to do it more pointedly than ever. But rest assured, when they achieve what they want to achieve, they will give Rome what she wants.
Revelation 18 says that the kings of the earth and the merchants of the earth who control the power and money (the globalist elite) have a cozy relationship with Rome. It is implied in those verses. But both of them will do something when she is punished that is surprising, Revelation 18:10 and 15-19.
“Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come… The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls. For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.”
There’s something about their relationship that they have been feeding on that has, for a time, made them a lot of money, which they love. And since “the love of money is the root of all evil,” they have oppressed the poor, started and encouraged wars, created a lot of misery, enslaved men and women, were cruel to children and infants, assassinated and murdered, pillaged, and destroyed the lives of millions, just to get more money and with it more power.
Rome is responsible for this. But people don’t see it because of the Christlike garments by which she disguises herself. Rome is the same in the dark ages as well as when there is great light.
Now, the G7 which is a conglomeration of the world’s most advanced economies including Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Canada, and the United States, plus a representative from the European Union (EU), have recently met and proposed and adopted a climate club. The purpose of the climate club they say, is because the current climate agreements aren’t working. Of course, when an agreement doesn’t work, their answer is to force it upon the nations, or coerce them to comply. This is an attempt to create an international system of coercion. And as usual, Satan is behind it. He is behind any consolidation in government or politics, because it takes away freedom. And this climate club will work to take away the freedoms you have, guaranteed.
In this climate club, which is planned to be formed by the end of this year, 2022, will have benefits and advantages for member nations and penalize those who refuse to join. Those who join the club will be exempted by the other members from climate related trade restrictions that are required of the nations that refuse to join.
The climate club will implement or impose rules and regulations on nations and industries that are deemed polluters. But the bigger issue is that it is a form of world government, although labeled global collaboration, because these would be global rules and regulations not just national policies. This will certainly lead to other areas of control over the nations by a world body as they yield various elements of their sovereignty one by one. In other words, instead of imposing a global government from the top down, the global internationalists are doing it piece meal in sectors where they can get cooperation. Eventually, as cooperation grows, the few holdouts will be pressured by disadvantages to coerce them to cooperate.
Notice what Yale economist and Nobel Prize winner William Nordhaus said. “…The voluntary nature of existing climate agreements hasn’t resulted in sufficient progress.”
Why Germany is pushing for a ‘climate club’
Think about that for a minute. The voluntary nature of the existing climate agreements hasn’t resulted in sufficient progress. That clearly suggests that something involuntary is needed, something coerced or forced. He is speaking to the minds of the G7 leaders who want more power, as well as others. So, they will impose rules and regulations on all nations. They have one standard for club members and another standard for non-club members.
First, they will try to persuade nations to join the club. Then, for those who refuse or are dilatory, they will try to coerce with benefits and disadvantages, the carrot and stick, for either compliance or non-compliance. Then, my guess is, that they will more strongly coerce them by restricting money from the World Bank or other sources of development funds, making it essentially difficult for them to buy or sell. And this will all be spun as for the common good. It reminds me of something that will happen to God’s people at the very end of time. It’s found in Great Controversy, page 607.
“As the controversy extends into new fields and the minds of the people are called to God’s downtrodden law, Satan is astir. The power attending the message will only madden those who oppose it. The clergy will put forth almost superhuman efforts to shut away the light lest it should shine upon their flocks. By every means at their command they will endeavor to suppress the discussion of these vital questions. The church appeals to the strong arm of civil power, and, in this work, papists and Protestants unite. As the movement for Sunday enforcement becomes more bold and decided, the law will be invoked against commandment keepers. They will be threatened with fines and imprisonment, and some will be offered positions of influence, and other rewards and advantages, as inducements to renounce their faith. But their steadfast answer is: “Show us from the word of God our error”—the same plea that was made by Luther under similar circumstances. Those who are arraigned before the courts make a strong vindication of the truth, and some who hear them are led to take their stand to keep all the commandments of God. Thus light will be brought before thousands who otherwise would know nothing of these truths.”
First, they will try to persuade and convince Those who are obedient to the word of God, namely seventh day Sabbath keepers, to change their convictions through arguments and discussion of the key points of disagreement with them. Second, they will cancel the present truth and those who proclaim it by shutting them out of social media, the web, and every other place if possible. Thirdly, they will offer them inducements to renounce their faith, or they will threaten them with fines and imprisonment; the carrot or the stick. Fourthly, they will use economic restrictions coerce compliance. And lastly, they will be denounced as worthy of death for the good of society, or the common good.
That’s how these global elites will work with various nations of the world. They will be much more effective with them than with a few obstinate and determined Sabbath keepers. They will all line up, eventually. Nations can be worthy of death, like the Ukraine, because Ukraine wants to remain independent of the Russian Orthodox Patriarchate. It’s interesting that the pope has not gotten involved very much in the issue because he does not want to appear publicly as provoking the Russian Orthodox Church. But he is. Rome is gradually eliminating its opposition from enemies. But it’s doing it very quietly, behind the scenes, where the public cannot see it, at least not yet.
The time for public reckoning will come, and Rome will stand as if naked before the world. Notice this statement from Great Controversy, page 606.
“The sins of Babylon will be laid open. The fearful results of enforcing the observances of the church by civil authority, the inroads of spiritualism, the stealthy but rapid progress of the papal power—all will be unmasked.”
I’d like to say something about the common good. This is a papal concept that makes everyone responsible for everybody else. And if you don’t line up with what everybody else is doing or thinking, you are a pariah in society, worthy of exclusion or cancellation, in other words persecution. Protestant churches are promoting the common good too. Even the remnant church is arguing that the common good is essential. They say in so many words; if you don’t get vaccinated you aren’t concerned about others, even are killing people. In other words, they have aligned themselves with the Papacy in the spirit of persecution.
The climate club is interested in accelerating climate action. They are working to consolidate the superstructure to enforce it on the world. If they can’t force it, they will certainly coerce it. The climate club will produce a set of rules and regulations with which all nations can comply. So, they will not be so stringent at first with developing countries whose carbon footprint is larger than developed countries. Of course, that implies that the developing countries will be cooperative.
In any political manner you have to follow the money. And this is no exception. The money comes from taxes. The G7 climate club is planning to implement taxes on the trade of products and services that require excessive carbon emissions to produce. Those who are members of the climate club will exempt each other from climate related trade tariffs that non-members would be subject to. So, the incentive will be very strong for countries to join the club, and also there will be a strong disincentive not to join. It is a carrot and a stick approach. It’s also taxation without representation. Individual citizens will have no say on this tax, yet they have to pay for it. Everything is passed on to the consumer. It is built into the retail pricing of those goods and services on which it is imposed.
Remember that the climate change agenda is being pushed by the pope in Rome. So, there must be a connection between Rome and the climate club and these kings of the earth. Pope Frances published an encyclical on climate change called Laudato Si. When the pope speaks, the nations listen. Laudato Si is part of a global plan that the papacy has enacted to bring the world under her control and get the nations to worship her. Let’s read Revelation 13:3 and 4.
“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?”
So the goal is to get all nations and people to worship Rome and the pope. Rome is bending every effort for this to happen. And she is now nearly sitting on top of the world, as it were, with her climate change agenda. Revelation 18 makes this very clear in verse 7. Speaking of her future punishment the infallible Bible says; “How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.”
Verse 9 says; “And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning…”
Presidents, prime ministers, monarchs, dictators, are all in with the pope in one way or another. The pope has long advocated “carbon pricing” to stem global climate change. This comes in the form of a tax on carbon emissions through tariffs on international trade. By making it more expensive to use fossil fuels, for example, is the easiest way to reduce its use.
Pope backs carbon pricing to stem global warming and appeals to deniers
This tax is a form of control, which is the enemy’s goal. The nations that refuse to join this club or are stubborn regarding their climate emissions will feel the economic pressure to join the club. This will eventually affect individuals. But right now, they’re starting with the nations. And what they do at the national level and at the global level will affect every man, woman and child on the planet. Their message is to give up your individual rights and liberties in favor of the common good. According to Catholic social teaching, the common good is more important than individual rights.
Even the Jesuits are promoting a carbon tax to stem climate change. It’s part of their social teaching too. Breitbart wrote; “The Jesuit Post is urging the imposition of a U.S. carbon tax to ‘disincentivize’ the use of fossil fuels and ‘generate revenue’ to address the negative effects of climate change.”
Woke Jesuits Dump Fossil Fuel Stocks to Combat ‘Climate Crisis’
It is the perfect ruse. Satan is planning to use climate to cause a lot of destruction on the planet. When God’s protection will be withdrawn from the planet because of persistence in its rebellion, there will be such a scene of destruction that no pen can describe. Listen to this from Testimonies for the Church, Vol 6, page 408.
“The restraining Spirit of God is even now being withdrawn from the world. Hurricanes, storms, tempests, fire and flood, disasters by sea and land, follow each other in quick succession. Science seeks to explain all these. The signs thickening around us, telling of the near approach of the Son of God, are attributed to any other than the true cause. Men cannot discern the sentinel angels restraining the four winds that they shall not blow until the servants of God are sealed; but when God shall bid His angels loose the winds, there shall be such a scene of strife as no pen can picture.”
Notice that all the disasters and catastrophes listed are climate related. And they always have been. Think of Noah and the flood. Think of Sodom. Think of Ahab and the drought. God’s judgments and Satan’s malice are all related to climate. So, it should be no surprise that today Satan seeks to control nature. And God uses it to punish the wicked for their sins. So, as the protecting and restraining spirit of God is withdrawn from the world, Satan is then permitted to wreak havoc through climate catastrophes. That is in process and is developing right now. Here is an interesting statement from Great Controversy, page 589.
“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.”
Satan always actively deceives men wherever he can. And it’s all with the purpose to get them to worship him and reject God. And he is doing this on a global scale. I’ll read on; “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. Even now he 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 disastrous. Destruction will be upon both man and beast. “The earth mourneth and fadeth away,” “the haughty people … do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.” Isaiah 24:4, 5.”
Did you notice why these things happen? It is because they have changed the ordinance and have broken the everlasting covenant. What does that mean that they have changed the ordinance? That’s talking about the Sabbath as well as other principles contained in the 10 Commandments. Man has left God, even in nations that are professedly Christian.
And also, did you notice that science tries to explain the catastrophes. That removes the moral implications. It’s a scientific problem that we have to solve. That’s all. It’s not related to sin.
But God’s word says otherwise as we have seen. Man has an enormous capacity to excuse himself from any responsibility for sin. He minimizes and understates his accountability. He makes excuses for his disobedience. So, Satan has a lot of room to work with humanity.
The pope has been working for hundreds of years, since the dawn of the Reformation, to counteract its work, and reestablish Sunday laws. Rest assured, he is bending every effort to do so, including getting the world to align with him and his agenda through climate issues. And Laudato Si is no exception. The popes have brought Sunday worship into the encyclicals at every chance they get. Here it is.
“237. On Sunday, our participation in the Eucharist has special importance. Sunday, like the Jewish Sabbath, is meant to be a day which heals our relationships with God, with ourselves, with others and with the world.”
Notice that he says that relationships need to be healed with the world. This is both referring to climate and to our social responsibility on a global scale. Most people don’t think about this. So, the pope is reminding them. He wants the nations to protect creation, but not the worship of the God of creation. For the God of creation commanded that all humanity observe or keep the 7th day of the week. But the pope and the church have set aside Sabbath observance and replaced it with Sunday observance. Again, reading from Laudato Si; “Sunday is the day of the Resurrection, the “first day” of the new creation, whose first fruits are the Lord’s risen humanity, the pledge of the final transfiguration of all created reality.”
There it is. Created reality will be transfigured, meaning that it will be finally restored.
“It also proclaims ‘man’s eternal rest in God.’ In this way, Christian spirituality incorporates the value of relaxation and festivity. We tend to demean contemplative rest as something unproductive and unnecessary, but this is to do away with the very thing which is most important about work: its meaning… The law of weekly rest forbade work on the seventh day, ‘so that your ox and your donkey may have rest, and the son of your maidservant, and the stranger, may be refreshed’ (Ex 23:12). Rest opens our eyes to the larger picture and gives us renewed sensitivity to the rights of others. And so the day of rest, centered on the Eucharist, sheds its light on the whole week, and motivates us to greater concern for nature and the poor.”
This is nature worship, which is what all pagan religions have done for centuries, for millennia. And notice that the pope included the Eucharist without any biblical support. The Eucharist and the mass are the central element of Rome’s pagan worship. Romans 1:25; “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
Anyone who is working for Satan will change the truth of God into a lie and will serve and worship the creature more than the creator. So again, it should be no surprise that Rome is pushing nature worship. This will support Sunday observance, because Sunday observance is a memorial to nature and creation as well as the resurrection to the Catholic world.
Sunday worship will eventually be enforced as the law of the land. Here it is from Great Controversy, page 578.
“It has been shown that the United States is the power represented by the beast with lamblike horns, and that this prophecy will be fulfilled when the United States shall enforce Sunday observance, which Rome claims as the special acknowledgment of her supremacy. But in this homage to the papacy the United States will not be alone. The influence of Rome in the countries that once acknowledged her dominion is still far from being destroyed. And prophecy foretells a restoration of her power. ‘I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.’”
So the United States is going to lead out in climate issues. Rest assured you are not going to see the end of this. It’s only just the beginning. And the result will be a national Sunday law leading to a universal Sunday law. Listen to this from Testimonies to the Church, Vol. 7, page 141.
“The substitution of the laws of men for the law of God, the exaltation, by merely human authority, of Sunday in place of the Bible Sabbath, is the last act in the drama. When this substitution becomes universal God will reveal Himself. He will arise in His majesty to shake terribly the earth.”
And notice this statement from Testimonies for the Church, Vol 6, page 395.
“Foreign nations will follow the example of the United States. Though she leads out, yet the same crisis will come upon our people in all parts of the world.”
Rome is a global church with a global Sunday law agenda, and she will not stop until she achieves it. And right now, it’s all going her way. And how will they impose this Sunday law in modern society? They will use many tools, but one of the foremost will be through your smartphone. They are already implementing trackers for your smartphone that track your vaccination status. They will develop carbon footprint trackers so that they can track the individual’s carbon footprint. The carbon footprint is what you spend your money on that is environmentally unsustainable.
This will eventually lead to a Sunday tracker. I don’t know the exact details of how it will be implemented. But I can see that it can easily be done. They have been developing these tools in other areas so that one day they can implement them in this area. Even though those who are developing those tools may not be aware of the ultimate goal, but with the eye of prophecy we can look into the future and see that technology will be used extensively in the enforcement of climate laws, which includes Sunday laws.
At Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the president of the Alibaba group announced that they will roll out an individual carbon footprint tracker along with a business carbon footprint tracker.
“Speaking at the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos on Tuesday, Alibaba Group president J. Michael Evans announced that the Chinese multinational e-commerce platform would soon be launching carbon footprint trackers in an attempt to change people’s shopping and travel behaviors.
“We’re developing, through technology, an ability for consumers to measure their own carbon footprint […] That’s where they’re traveling, how they are traveling, what are they eating, what are they consuming on the platform.”
‘Individual carbon footprint tracker, stay tuned’: Alibaba president at WEF 2022
Of course, you can expect it to become more than a voluntary system. It will be mandated and used as a social credit system. It will be similar to the authoritarian Chinese model of social credit. Those who make the “right decisions” will be rewarded. Those who make the “wrong decisions” will be penalized. In China they’re not allowed to travel, go to restaurants, or even have the ability to rent an apartment, or buy insurance if they have poor social credit by making too many unacceptable decisions. Even medical services can be restricted to those who have a good social credit score. But the most impact will be made when you can’t buy or sell unless you have and acceptable social credit score. Eventually, Sabbath keepers will automatically fall into that group with an unacceptable credit score.
Not only will Sabbath keepers be eliminated from the social system of interaction and trade, but their trackers will keep track of their whereabouts at all times. God will surely have to sustain them independent of the system. And by the way, you won’t be able to use technology. You won’t be able to use your bank account. You won’t be able to use anything that ties you to this world. You better think how you are going to live. Listen to this from Great Controversy, page 615.
“As the Sabbath has become the special point of controversy throughout Christendom, and religious and secular authorities have combined to enforce the observance of the Sunday, the persistent refusal of a small minority to yield to the popular demand will make them objects of universal execration. It will be urged that the few who stand in opposition to an institution of the church and a law of the state ought not to be tolerated; that it is better for them to suffer than for whole nations to be thrown into confusion and lawlessness. The same argument many centuries ago was brought against Christ by the “rulers of the people.” “It is expedient for us,” said the wily Caiaphas, “that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.” 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 giving the people liberty, after a certain time, to put them to death. Romanism in the Old World and apostate Protestantism in the New will pursue a similar course toward those who honor all the divine precepts.”
And a social credit system is already being implemented in some countries. Listen to this; “Italy is all set to become the first European country to implement a social credit system that is government-sponsored. A rewards-based program will be rolled out as well. It is meant to have an impact on people’s reactions to climate change. The residents will be assessed based on their level of compliance. The program will roll out in Bologna in the Autumn of 2022. Citizens who do the needful will be given rewards in the form of cryptocurrency, and they will also get rebates from local retailers. Rewards are there for using public transportation and recycling things in the right way.”
First Social Credit System in Europe: Rewards for Exemplary Citizens?
Friends, it’s already starting. Prepare for more nations to join the process. The G7 and the climate club will facilitate the transition smoothly. And when this is accomplished, they can establish universal laws on nations all over the world at once, including a universal Sunday law.
Friends, the world leaders are creating a Babylonian empire once again. Babylon is back. They are doing it for the sake of Rome and Rome is using it to implement her religious policies. And it will happen rapidly because the final movements will be rapid ones. From Testimonies to the Church, Vol. 9, page 11.
“The agencies of evil are combining their forces and consolidating. They are strengthening for the last great crisis. Great changes are soon to take place in our world, and the final movements will be rapid ones.”
Are these nations consolidating and strengthening themselves? Why? Because they are preparing themselves for the last great conflict in the universal controversy. They are determined to resist God and His law. They are trying to implement an order that will oppose God’s order. They are attempting to realign everything according to man’s idea of control. And it will follow Satan’s agenda to restrict freedom.
Are great changes taking place in the world? Many people may wonder what it’s all about, and why all these changes are taking place so rapidly. The only way that they can understand them is through Bible prophecy. Please don’t delay preparation of your soul for the last great crisis as well.
Let us pray. Our Father in heaven, the world is in turmoil and change. It is being organized to fight You to the death. And there will be a death decree against all who are loyal to heaven. I pray that Your people will be prepared for the crisis in the conflict of the last days. As the world comes to its close, we look forward to Jesus coming again in the clouds of heaven. But there is an awful time ahead for Your people. We need backbones like steel. We need the courage of our convictions. Please send Your Holy Spirit to help us and give us the grace we need to go through this time ahead. Please make the Bible a book of real strength to us. In Jesus name, amen.
