The current days of rest for the Muslim State of Johor in Malaysia are Friday and Saturday. However, recent polls indicate that 95.7% of people support switching from Friday and Saturday to Saturday and Sunday for their weekends. Additionally, the majority of the 44,290 teachers in Johor fully support the proposal for Sunday rest. Government officials were looking to review their days of rest and the feedback from this major Muslim community has voiced its support for changing the state weekend to include Sunday.
Resting on Sundays is becoming more and more popular with each passing day. The movement to reclaim Sunday as a day of rest is gaining popularity all over the world. The prophetic picture painted in the book of Revelation is coming to fruition. The new movement in Muslim countries to implement Sunday rest is modeled after Western Christianity, particularly the Roman Sunday laws. You must look to the place from which it originated—Rome—in order to comprehend the true nature of Sunday rest by law.
“The enforcement of Sundaykeeping on the part of Protestant churches is an enforcement of the worship of the papacy—of the beast. Those who, understanding the claims of the fourth commandment, choose to observe the false instead of the true Sabbath are thereby paying homage to that power by which alone it is commanded. But in the very act of enforcing a religious duty by secular power, the churches would themselves form an image to the beast; hence the enforcement of Sundaykeeping in the United States would be an enforcement of the worship of the beast and his image” (Great Controversy, p. 448). #sda #adventist #adventista
