Fortunately I have a good grasp of Bible scriptures since I began reading/studying the Bible after asking the Lord Jesus to be my Savior at age 12. I am now 66. As soon as "keeping the Sabbath Day" was introduced as linked with the Mark of the Beast, I knew the theology was totally off. In my early 30's I met a woman from an Adventist church and read a book she offered to me. The book made a convincing argument, thus I engaged in more research on the topic of "not keeping the Sabbath." I am a sincere believer and if I had been taught error, I wanted to know. The Lord led me to this verse in Colossians where the Apostle Paul is speaking to one of the new churches after the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus: "16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. (Col. 2:16-17) That statement is clear. I showed this scripture to my friend. She had no answer but said she would ask her pastor. I heard nothing more after that.
The Law given to Moses and successive generations of Jews was the Old Covenant - a type or shadow of what was to come in the fulfillment of Christ, the final and perfect sacrifice for the sins of mankind. In Luke 22:20 during the Passover Supper, known to us gentile believers as communion, Jesus said, "20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you." Jesus told His disciples that His sacrifice was a New Covenant - a new promise from God - that fulfilled the Mosaic Covenant and offered salvation to those who believed. Believe what? To the church in Corinth, Paul spelled out the Gospel, the "good news" of our faith and hope in Christ alone - "Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. 6 After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. 7 After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. 8 Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time. 1 Cor. 15:1-2"
Finally, when Gentiles began believing in this good news, the Jewish leaders of the new church - all believers in the Gospel, not a building - held a council to determine what laws these new gentile believers should follow. "And certain men came down from Judea and taught the brethren, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.” 2 Therefore, when Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and dispute with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas and certain others of them should go up to Jerusalem, to the apostles and elders, about this question." (Acts 15:1-2) Peter made an interesting statement: "And when there had been much dispute, Peter rose up and said to them: “Men and brethren, you know that a good while ago God chose among us, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe. 8 So God, who knows the heart, acknowledged them by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as He did to us, 9 and made no distinction between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith. 10 Now therefore, why do you test God by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? 11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved in the same manner as they.” (Acts 15:7-11) Peter says that no one is able to keep the law perfectly; no man ever has. The determination was agreed upon that the new Gentile believers did not have to be circumsised, nor try to keep the law which Peter described as a "yoke." The decision was made: "19 Therefore I judge that we should not trouble those from among the Gentiles who are turning to God, 20 but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from things strangled, and from blood." (Acts 15 19-20)
Beware of "another gospel" being taught. ("But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed." Galatians 1:8 The world is quickly descending into the lawlessness that is described in the Books of Daniel and Revelation, the one world government is being readied (called The New World Order by current government leaders), technology is available to keep track of all humans as would be necessary for the Anti-Christ's totalitarian government. This movie does a good job detailing those aspects of where we currently are in history ie. in the last seconds of the world as we know it; however, the blatant preaching of "another gospel" is dangerous. God bless those who read this.
