April 28, 2017 – “LIBERTY OF CONSCIENCE THREATENED! NATURAL DISASTERS ARE COMING WHICH WILL RESULT IN A NATIONAL SUNDAY (WORSHIP) LAW WILL BE THE MARK OF THE BEAST! A $1000.00 REWARD FOR MISSING BIBLE TEXT.” These shocking statements have startled millions of readers that picked up the USA Today on April 14th, or the Washington Times on April 12th and 14th, 2017. The ad offers a thousand dollars for a missing Bible text that will prove the sacredness of the 7th–day Sabbath was transferred to Sunday, the first day of the week, either by Jesus or one of His apostles.
The Eternal Gospel Church in West Palm Beach, FL is responsible for the ads. Their toll-free phone number is 1-866-7TH-DAY-2
Their website www.eternalgospel.com describes this ministry as founded in 1992 by Seventh-day Adventist believers who are preparing for Christ’s Second Coming.
Their senior pastor, Raphael Perez, has often been asked why the church puts ads in newspapers across the nation for the past 25 years.
He responded, “The world is in great crisis. Sin is increasing. There is no more respect for God’s law in the land. We see the tradition of Sunday keeping being placed over the sacredness of the seventh-day Sabbath of the fourth commandment. The present pope in his addresses and encyclicals has been calling for Sunday keeping under the pretext of the good of the family and the environment. We see how church and state has been getting closer and closer contrary to the U.S. Constitution. The United States is the first country in the history of the world to separate church and state and that has made America great. We believe the Bible, not tradition, has the answer—that God will bless this country through the heart conversion of individuals, not through force. And God’s blessing will rest on every individual, family, church, and nation that chooses to live in harmony with all ten immutable commandments including keeping the true seventh-day Sabbath holy. Sunday keeping is what the Bible predicts—it will be enforced and become the Mark of the Beast and that is going to bring this nation to ruin.”
The Eternal Gospel Ministry has also been involved in world-wide work using TV, Radio, newspapers, and billboards, with the goal of giving the everlasting gospel and warnings for the end times. Go to EternalGospel.com to see more of their work.
