This post came to me this afternoon. I am not verifying that it is true, however, it stands a very good chance of being so. You judge for yourself.
The Catholic Church is taking SDA General Conference to court over the worldwide circulation of the book 'Great Controversy'.The church has launched this project-to circulate around the world, with some pictures added about the work of the papacy, pagan worship, etc. The Catholic's are not happy with it.
6 out of the 9 supreme court judges in the US are Catholics. We need to PRAY. Prophecy is being fulfilled. We are living in very interesting times! GOD Save His people!
God has many wonderful godly people still in the Catholic church that we will be spending eternity with, 'come out of her my people' is His message to them. How we treat them is how we treat Jesus.....Inasmuch..."
With all else that is happening, i.e. WOPE, homosexuality, charismatic pressure, etc., this would fit right into the the trends today.

NO OFFENSE TO THE MESSENGER
This was one of those times where I did not have the time to verify it, which is why I placed the disclaimer at the beginning. I most certainly hope it is not true and if someone has indeed checked it out, I appreciate it. The source that it came to me through has been quite accurate and careful, so I trusted their reporting. Sorry if I jumped the gun on this.
What was the source?
BORED....No life....Wanting their 5 minutes of fame....same thing that starts every other rumour. It has been all over Facebook and private e-mails.
Unfortunately, there are "some professed SDA's" who want to see a showdown with the Catholic Church....Misery loves company.
Thank you for the official confirmation. =)
Testimonies for the Church vol. 8, pages 116-118:
The Message for this Time
I have been instructed to trace words of warning for our brethren and sisters who are in danger of losing sight of the special work for this time. The Lord has made us depositaries of sacred truth. We are to arise and shine. In every land we are to herald the second coming of Christ, in the language of the revelator proclaiming: "Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him." Revelation 1:7.
What are we doing? Are we giving the message of the third angel? The third angel followed them [the first and second angels], 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. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." Revelation 14:9-12.
The commandments of God and the testimony of Jesus are united. They are to be clearly presented to the world.
The Opposition of the Enemy
In God's word we are shown the consequences of proclaiming the third angel's message. "The dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." Revelation 12:17. A refusal to obey the commandments of God, and a determination to cherish hatred against those who proclaim these commandments, leads to the most determined war on the part of the dragon, whose whole energies are brought to bear against the commandment-keeping people of God. "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 13:16, 17.
The sign, or seal, of God is revealed in the observance of the seventh-day Sabbath, the Lord's memorial of creation. "The Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily My Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you." Exodus 31:12, 13. Here the Sabbath is clearly designated as a sign between God and His people.
The mark of the beast is the opposite of this--the observance of the first day of the week. This mark distinguishes those who acknowledge the supremacy of the papal authority from those who acknowledge the authority of God.
The Loud Cry
As foretold in the eighteenth of Revelation, the third angel's message is to be proclaimed with great power by those who give the final warning against the beast and his image: "I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, 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. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double." Revelation 18:1-6.
This is the message given by God to be sounded forth in the loud cry of the third angel.
Those whose faith and zeal are proportionate to their knowledge of the truth will reveal their loyalty to God by communicating the truth, in all its saving, sanctifying power, to those with whom they associate. Their lives of holiness and unselfish service will be in conformity with the vital principles of the kingdom of heaven.
I REALLY appreciate this posting.. :) ( by ACNF63 )
As for the lawsuit, it seems to be a rumor only, and Ray is also right to keep your ear to the ground and see if maybe it doesnt end up being true.. Eventually..
And Sunday worship law MAY be what we look for as THE thing to hurry us through the doors, but I think these verses from Rev tell us that this IS a gradual thing and it becomes set like cement until we dont even CARE when the law does come in to play because we have compromised and now we desire our little secretive sins stay with us.. We have NOT come out of her, OUR OWN SELVES... HOW can we call others from it? We have to ransack our souls on this day of attonement, and ACCEPT the COMPLETED MESSAGE of Righteousness by Faith in Christ in the attempt TO ransack our sins and THROW them OUT.. It is NOT our power IN ANY WAY that will EVER accomplish this.. ONLY as we can understand and implement Righteousness by Faith in Christ ONLY as our way out, will we ever be able to assist others out of Babylon of the mind and soul..
I heard the same thing from a sister at church, but I have not been able to find any evidence that it is true. I did Google searches and checked Adventist News Network. I tend to believe that it is a conspiracy until I see proof.
so many lies in the camp
That is my position too. Until I have more conclusive proof, I am just holding it as a rumor.
I believe the Roman Catholic Church has plenty of other controversies to worry about than to go to Court over the Great Controversy.This is just another untrue internet rumor!
