The Battle Over God’ Law

The works of his hands are verity and
judgment; all his commandments are
sure. They stand fast for ever and
ever, and are done in truth and
uprightness. Psalm 111:7, 8.
Satan is at work from beneath to stir
up the hellish powers of his
confederacy of evil against the just. He
imbues human agencies with his own
attributes. Evil angels united with evil
men will put forth efforts to harass,
persecute, and destroy. But the Lord
God of Israel will not forsake those
who trust in Him. Amid the
strengthening of infidelity and
apostasy, amid the pretended
illumination which is the blindest
presumption and delusion, there will
be a light from the sanctuary above
shining upon God’s people. The truth
of God will triumph.
The commandments of God will be
trampled underfoot, as they were
trampled upon by Satan in heaven.
Unless God pours His converting power
and grace upon the soul, there will be
no attempt to oppose Satan, but men
will be under his control, his willing
captives. The enmity against Satan is
put in man by God Himself. God calls
upon His people to occupy a distinct,
decided position. The righteous fervor
with which Christ denounced every
abomination in our world, the
unsullied purity, which made manifest
the corruption of those that deceived
the people by an appearance of
sanctity, excited bitter hostility against
Him.
Today the same attitude on the part of
His people will call forth similar
treatment. Every person will be
arrayed under one of the two banners.
The chosen and loyal will stand under
the bloodstained banner of Prince
Emmanuel, and all others under
Satan’s standard. All who are on
Satan’s side will unite with him in
honoring the spurious Sabbath, thus
paying homage to the man of sin, who
has exalted himself above all that is
called God and [who] has thought to
change times and laws. They trample
upon the laws of Jehovah and frame
laws to compel all to worship the false
Sabbath, the idol they have exalted.
But the day of deliverance to God’s
people is not far distant.
I wish that all could appreciate the
wonderful working of God in behalf of
man. For fallen angels there has been
no atonement; but for fallen man a full
and ample offering has been made to
save to the uttermost all who shall
come unto God by Him. He will not
turn away one repentant seeker. “For
verily he took not on him the nature of
angels; but he took on him the seed of
Abraham [that humanity might reach
humanity, and divinity lay hold upon
divinity]” (Hebrews 2:16).
