The Seventh-day Adventist Position on ‘The Mark Of The Beast’ From 1900 – 1915

The Seventh-day Adventist Position on
‘The Mark Of The Beast’ From 1900 – 1915

In 1999-2002 I led campaigns with small groups going door to door giving away truck loads of National Sunday Law “little preachers” as Jan Marcussen called them. My team literally covered almost every town in Oregon! We also passed out truck loads of Great Controversy, Steps to Christ, and many others. We covered the Universities for nearly a year; all the cars parked at the Mall just before Christmas, and once I actually passed out approximately 500 books inside the lobby of a First-Baptist church as the people were leaving!

The General Conference Bulletin April 14, 1903

“And NEVER MUST WE SAY TO THEM, “YOU MUST WORK ON SUNDAY.” . . . . Give Sunday to the Lord as a day for doing missionary work. Take the students out to HOLD MEETINGS IN DIFFERENT PLACES, and to do medical missionary work. . . . . This way of spending Sunday is always acceptable to the Lord.” – Ellen G. White

 One does not receive the mark of the beast because he shows that he realizes the wisdom of keeping the peace by refraining from work that gives offense. . . . Sunday can be used for carrying forward various lines of work that will accomplish much for the Lord. On this day open-air meetings and cottage meetings can be held. House-to-house work can be done. Those who write can devote this day to writing their articles. Whenever it is possible, let religious services be held on Sunday. Make these meetings intensely interesting. Sing genuine revival hymns, and speak with power and assurance of the Saviour’s love.– Testimonies to the Church volume 9 p. 232, 233.

WHAT A CONTRAST COMPARED TO WHAT SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST TAUGHT ABOUT THE MARK OF THE BEAST FROM 1850-1899!

Ellen White Review and Herald, July 13, 1897 wrote: “WHEN YOU OBEY THE DECREE THAT COMMANDS YOU TO CEASE FROM LABOR ON SUNDAY AND WORSHIP GOD, . . . YOU CONSENT TO RECEIVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST.

E. J. Waggoner – Signs of the Times April 8, 1889. wrote: “If Sunday observance is enforced by law, it will result in the oppression of Jews, Sabbatarian Christians, and others WHO DEEM IT NECESSARY TO LABOR ON THAT DAY.”

A. T. Jones – The American Sentinel Articles February 19, 1891. wrote: “By this it is evident that were his will in Sunday-law matters performed, he would compel those people “to loaf” every Sunday, AND THEREBY PROHIBIT THEIR OBEYING THE COMMANDMENT, “SIX DAYS SHALT THOU LABOR.
