SPIRITUALISM IS COMING SOON!
Through the two great errors, the immortality of the soul and Sunday sacredness, Satan will bring the people under his deceptions. While the former lays the foundation of spiritualism, the latter creates a bond of sympathy with Rome" (GC 588).
The pope is on the move as we look at his schedule for September 2015. "Francis arrives Sept. 22 at Andrews Air Force Base in Washington, D.C., and the next day will be welcomed on the South Lawn of the White House by President Barack Obama, the Vatican said. He will become the first pope to address the U.S. Congress on Sept. 24, and will meet with homeless people later in the day at a local parish, St. Patrick's. He'll give America a new saint by canonizing the 18th-century Spanish missionary Junipero Serra at the National Shrine.
"On Sept. 25, Francis will deliver a speech on sustainable development at the United Nations, where he'll have another opportunity to voice his concerns about the environment ahead of make-or-break climate negotiations in Paris later this year. "He'll host an interfaith gathering at Ground Zero in New York and meet with children and immigrant families on the other end of Manhattan, in Harlem. "While St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI celebrated Mass in Yankee Stadium during their New York visits, Francis will celebrate Mass for a slightly smaller crowd in Madison Square Garden, and preside over a vespers service at the newly spruced-up St. Patrick's Cathedral. "On Sept. 26, he heads to Philadelphia where he will join the church's World Meeting of Families. He will host a 'meeting for religious liberty' at Independence Mall with immigrants and the Hispanic community, the Vatican itinerary said.
"Francis will visit prisoners at the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility in Philadelphia before celebrating the final Mass of the family meeting on Sept. 27. He returns to the Vatican on September 28" (WCPO Cincinnati, June 30, 2015). President Obama "hinted at what he expects to speak with Pope Francis about when they meet in September at the White House, including poverty, climate change, and conflict in the Middle East" (The Washington Post, April 2015).
In the Pope's recent encyclical, Laudato Si' , the first ever Jesuit pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church gives in lengthy detail his solution to save "Mother Earth" and help the poor. Cleverly, Pope Francis intertwines Sunday rest and climate control in his master plan to deceive the world. He builds his case by pointing, first, to the Jewish Sabbath (Exodus 20:8-11); second, to the Shmita, or sabbatical year, and God's requirement for the land to rest every seven years (Lev. 25:1-7); and, third, to the Jubilee--a year of emancipation and restoration provided by ancient Hebrew law to be kept every 50 years by the emancipation of Hebrew slaves, restoration of alienated lands to their former owners, and omission of all cultivation of the land" (Lev. 25:8-17).
Under the facade of a climate control agenda and a humanitarian effort to bless the poor, this "man of sin" (2 Thess. 2:3) is laying the snare to deceive the world into keeping Sunday holy in place of the true 7th-day Sabbath, which is Saturday. A bold move to usurp God's holy day (see Isaiah 58:13) and rightful position as Creator and Maker of heaven and earth and institute in its place the "venerable day of the sun". Sunday in the Bible is a common working day, and, per the calendar, not the seventh, but the first day of the week. God has never commanded anyone to keep Sunday holy in the Bible. There is not one scripture proving Sunday is holy.
Read a portion of the encyclical for yourself: "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. 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. 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. We are called to include in our work a dimension of receptivity and gratuity, which is quite different from mere inactivity. Rather, it is another way of working, which forms part of our very essence. It protects human action from becoming empty activism; it also prevents that unfettered greed and sense of isolation which make us seek personal gain to the detriment of all else. 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 it light on the whole week, and motivates us to greater concern for nature and the poor."
The fourth commandment is not centered on the Eucharist, but on creation week and the Creator. God rested from His works and "blessed the seventh day and sanctified it" (see Gen. 2:2,3). The Bible says: "Remember the Sabbath day [Saturday], to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath [Saturday] of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORDmade heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day [Saturday]: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day[Saturday], and hallowed it" (Exodus 20:8-11). Sunday is not sacred. No mere mortal has the power or right to change what God wrote with His own finger on stone and in the hearts' of people who choose Him through the enabling power of the Holy Spirit.
Can you smell Sunday laws coming, beloved? This Jesuit imposter, this agent of Satan, is masquerading as "God" on earth claiming to have power over the angels of heaven and power to modify divine law. No man can change or modify God's law, for it is "as sacred as Himself" (PP 40). Rome admits they changed the solemnity of Saturday to Sunday, and most Protestant churches follow her traditions not only in Sunday sacredness, but also in the belief of immortality of the soul.
From the White House on June 18, 2015, President Obama released his statement on Pope Francis's encyclical as follows: "I welcome His Holiness Pope Francis's encyclical, and deeply admire the Pope's decision to make the case - clearly, powerfully, and with the full moral authority of his position - for action on global climate change.
"As Pope Francis so eloquently stated this morning, we have a profound responsibility to protect our children, and our children's children, from the damaging impacts of climate change. I believe the United States must be a leader in this effort, which is why I am committed to taking bold actions at home and abroad to cut carbon pollution, to increase clean energy and energy efficiency, to build resilience in vulnerable communities, and to encourage responsible stewardship of our natural resources. We must also protect the world's poor, who have done the least to contribute to this looming crisis and stand to lose the most if we fail to avert it.
"I look forward to discussing these issues with Pope Francis when he visits the White House in September. And as we prepare for global climate negotiations in Paris this December, it is my hope that all world leaders--and all God's children--will reflect on Pope Francis's call to come together to care for our common home."
"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 inlegislative 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" (GC88 581).
In July, 2015 many of Modern Manna's donors helped us reprint 30,000 copies of "Is the Virgin Mary Dead or Alive?" in English and Spanish. We were nearly out of stock of the English version and only a hundred remained in Spanish. We do have a good supply of Portuguese and French books left for anyone interested. But praise God that Modern Manna's supporters were willing to help us get this very timely book reprinted, for spiritualism is soon to break upon the world with signs and wonders of a supernatural order.
Three million copies of "Is the Virgin Mary Dead or Alive?" have been distributed in seven languages all over the world. The book tells my story
of being raised in a Roman Catholic, Italian family and my attendance in Catholic Schools for twelve years venerating the Virgin Mary. It exposes paganism in the Catholic Church, the mystery of the sacraments, the hellish doctrine of immortality of the soul, and Rome's change of God's Holy Day--the 7th Day Sabbath--from Saturday to Sunday. You will read about the time I asked a Catholic priest in my parish, who was holding a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other: "Why do we keep Sunday holy?" The inebriated "holy man" answered, "The pope changed the day of rest from Saturday to Sunday." Pure blasphemy!
Daniel the prophet warned that the "little horn" or "antichrist" would "speak [great] words against the most High and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time" (Daniel 7:25). And what laws do you think the antichrist would think to change? Of course it would be God's Ten Commandments. And Rome did exactly that. "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH ... drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus" (Revelation 17:5,6), removed the second commandment which forbids the worship of idols, moved the other nine so the fourth commandment (the Saturday-Sabbath) is the third and so on, and divided the tenth commandment into two commandments so there are still ten. Unbelievably bold! I own a Catholic catechism and can prove it is true! And let us not forget the millions of Christians who were slain and martyred at the hands of the Roman Catholic Church and the "Vicar of Christ" (one of many blasphemous titles of the pope) over the centuries past.
"Is the Virgin Mary Dead or Alive?" also exposes the other "great error" of Rome--spiritualism--and how demons will impersonate dead loved one, religious leaders, both past and present, who will be advocating Sunday laws, the false "Virgin Mary", and Satan's crowning act in the drama of deception: "As the crowning act in the great drama of deception, Satan himself will personate Christ. The church has long professed to look to the Saviour's advent as the consummation of her hopes. Now the great deceiver will make it appear that Christ has come. In different parts of the earth, Satan will manifest himself among men as a majestic being of dazzling brightness, resembling the description of the Son of God given by John in the Revelation. [Revelation 1:13-15.] The glory that surrounds him is unsurpassed by anything that mortal eyes have yet beheld. The shout of triumph rings out upon the air, "Christ has come! Christ has come!" The people prostrate themselves in adoration before him, while he lifts up his hands, and pronounces a blessing upon them, as Christ blessed his disciples when he was upon the earth. His voice is soft and subdued, yet full of melody. In gentle, compassionate tones he presents some of the same gracious, heavenly truths which the Saviour uttered; he heals the diseases of the people, and then, in his assumed character of Christ, he claims to have changed the Sabbath to Sunday, and commands all to hallow the day which he has blessed. He declares that those who persist in keeping holy the seventh day are blaspheming his name by refusing to listen to his angels sent to them with light and truth. This is the strong, almost overmastering delusion. Like the Samaritans who were deceived by Simon Magus, the multitudes, from the least to the greatest, give heed to these sorceries, saying, This is "the great power of God [Acts 8:10.]. But the people of God will not be misled. The teachings of this false christ are not in accordance with the Scriptures His blessing is pronounced upon the worshipers of the beast and his image,--the very class upon whom the Bible declares that God's unmingled wrath shall be poured out" (GC88 624).
The stage is fast being set for the final crisis that is soon to break upon God's people. There is little time left to make preparations both physically and spiritually for our families.
