...about the division's position that Sunday is the Sabbath in Samoa.

I did receive a response to an e-mail I had sent about this issue and it was stated in that e-mail about the complex problem with having the Sabbath changed.

I was greatly disappointed and I firmly believe the General Conference must step in if the divisions can't work this out properly.

I can't decide right now if I should post any of the e-mail as it was short and it mostly referred me to someone else. But, it did mention Sunday as being the Sabbath.

Brother Alexander,

Thank you for posting your comment.

We would do well to remember "the test" that the professed Children of God will face.

One of the pillars of the Seventh day Adventist Church is under gross attack from within, keeping the Seventh day Sabbath (Saturday) is indeed one of the identifying characteristics of His End Time Church, yet I wonder whether this has really hit home to us as a people.

For those of our brethren actually facing the day of worship controversy right now
.... it is in their face. Our time is coming, may the Lord help us!

Enforcement of Sunday Observance Is the Test

None are condemned until they have had the light and have seen the obligation of the fourth commandment. But when the decree shall go forth enforcing the counterfeit sabbath, and the loud cry of the third angel shall warn men against the worship of the beast and his image, the line will be clearly drawn between the false and the true. Then those who still continue in transgression will receive the mark of the beast.—Evangelism, 234, 235 (1899). {LDE 225.4}

When Sunday observance shall be enforced by law, and the world shall be enlightened concerning the obligation of the true Sabbath, then whoever shall transgress the command of God to obey a precept which has no higher authority than that of Rome, will thereby honor popery above God. He is paying homage to Rome, and to the power which enforces the institution ordained by Rome. He is worshiping the beast and his image.
{LDE 226.1}

As men then reject the institution which God has declared to be the sign of His authority, and honor in its stead that which Rome has chosen as the token of her supremacy, they will thereby accept the sign of allegiance to Rome—“the mark of the beast.” And it is not until the issue is thus plainly set before the people, and they are brought to choose between the commandments of God and the commandments of men, that those who continue in transgression will receive “the mark of the beast.”—
The Great Controversy, 449 (1911). {LDE 226.2}

This is the
test that the people of God must have before they are sealed. All who proved their loyalty to God by observing His law, and refusing to accept a spurious sabbath, will rank under the banner of the Lord God Jehovah, and will receive the seal of the living God. Those who yield the truth of heavenly origin and accept the Sunday sabbath, will receive the mark of the beast (Letter 11, 1890). {7BC 976.3}


May God grant you wisdom to know what to do with the information that you now have.


Many thanks
