Anti-terrorism laws

Anti-terrorism laws

In Russia Jehovah’s witness have been called an extremist group. While terrorism is a threat to and an assault on the West in backlash from dirty dealings in Afghanistan and Iraq, anti- terrorism laws are a threat to civil liberties worldwide and particularly in the U.S. 

“‘Delivering the verdict on Thursday, Judge Yury Ivanenko ruled that all 395 branches of the religious group (Jehovah’s witnesses) on Russian territory are subject to disbandment and the property is to be forfeited to the state.'” While I do not support Jehovah witness teachings this does not subtract from the important illustration and warning of coming events.

In the past we could say well that’s just Russia and the restrictions of Communism but the world has changed dramatically with legislated Christianity working its will in the USA today since the new administration in 2017. We are on the edge of monumental prophetic events.

And what does the future look like?  There is a prospect before us of a continued struggle at the risk of imprisonment, loss of property, and even of life itself, to defend the law of God, which is made void by the laws of men.–Testimonies, vol. 5, p. 712.  {ChS 157.3}   Men will be required to render obedience to human edicts in violation of the divine law. Those who are true to God will be menaced, denounced, proscribed. They will be “betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends,” even unto death.–PK 588 (c. 1914).  {LDE 150.3} As the defenders of truth refuse to honor the Sunday-sabbath, some of them will be thrust into prison, some will be exiled, some will be treated as slaves. To human wisdom, all this now seems impossible; but as the restraining Spirit of God shall be withdrawn from men, and they shall be under the control of Satan, who hates the divine precepts, there will be strange developments. The heart can be very cruel when God’s fear and love are removed.  {GC88 607.2} Note the dates of the above quotes 1888-1914.
