And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
Whoso KEEPETH THE LAW IS A WISE SON: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.
Garments of Christ
Hear thou, MY SON, and BE WISE, and GUIDE thine heart in the way. Be not among WINEBIBBERS; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the DRUNKARD and the GLUTTON shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall CLOTHE A MAN WITH RAGS. BUY THE TRUTH, and SELL IT NOT; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
With my whole heart have I sought thee: O LET ME NOT WANDER FROM THY COMMANDMENTS.Psalm:119:10
POPE’S SABBATH VERSE GOD’S SABBATH
And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, BECAUSE SHE MADE ALL NATIONS DRINK OF the WINE OF THE WRATH of her FORNICATION. Here is the patience of the SAINTS: here are they that KEEP the COMMANDMENTS of God, and the FAITH of Jesus.
ISRAEL is My Son
For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.Proverbs:4:2
Roman Catholic principles will be taken under the care and protection of the state. This national apostasy will speedily be followed by national ruin.—The Review and Herald, June 15, 1897.
When Protestant churches shall unite with the secular power to sustain a false religion, for opposing which their ancestors endured the fiercest persecution, then will the papal sabbath be enforced by the combined authority of church and state. There will be a national apostasy, which will end only in national ruin.—Evangelism, 235 (1899).
When the state shall use its power to enforce the decrees and sustain the institutions of the church—then will Protestant America have formed an image to the papacy, and there will be a national apostasy which will end only in national ruin.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:976 (1910). LDE 134.2 – LDE 134.4
