The following article is published at a time when there is already some relaxation of Sunday observance laws in the United Kingdom, and it relates to plans to expand business hours on Sunday. However, the sentiments expressed by the Member of Parliament, and the rationale offered for Sunday laws cannot be ignored. It is a harbinger of the future in the sense that it is a manifestation of worldwide interest in Sunday observance:-

Sunday Should Remain Special Day of Rest and Time with Family, Says MP

Sunday should remain a sacred day of rest and time spent with family, says U.K. Labour MP Tristram Hunt. The Christian Institute reports that Hunt, the MP for Stoke-on-Trent Central, said that if the plans to expand business hours on Sunday were passed, the culture of the U.K. would be drastically changed in a negative way. “If passed by Parliament, large shops and supermarkets will be able to treat Sunday the same as any other working day,” said Hunt. And, he continued, even if businesses did “put a few extra pence in the national coffers, is that really worth watering down such a distinctive aspect of our national culture?” . . .

In a letter to The Sunday Telegraph, the Church of England stated, “Keeping Sunday special is essential to the fabric of our society. Longer Sunday opening will have a dramatic effect on family life for no economic gain.”

It will be noted that Sunday legislation is in force in the United Kingdom, as also in other European nations. This contrasts with the relaxed environment and general business and sports activities in the USA. A National Sunday Law is not visible on the horizon; but Roman Catholic laws are being enacted on both Federal and State levels; (Cf. The Threat From Within: Dominionists Taking Over America; How the Roman Catholic Social Doctrine is Advancing in America.) Theocracy is more glaringly evident than a National Sunday law. The next two hyperlinked articles are somewhat intemperate (the authors appear to hold religion in contempt;) but they are factual:

They really want a theocracy: The GOP candidates who want to make you bow to their lord

A new PPP survey reveals that Republicans are afflicted most, with 44 percent now favoring installing Christianity as the United States’ official religion. (Lest we forget, the GOP’s roster of potential 2016 candidates is stocked with rabid believers, and even faith-faker Donald Trump is courting evangelicals.) A shocking 28 percent of Democrats are also theocratically inclined. Only 53 percent of Republican and Democratic voters combined oppose declaring Jesus jabberwocky our national faith.

The upshot: almost three out of four adult Americans would, in effect, junk the First Amendment, and with it, our gloriously godless system of governance. has long identified Ted Cruz as a dangerous Christian zealot. The next article reveals facts that are downright frightening considering his successes in the Republican presidential primary election (next to Donald Trump) as of the beginning of March, 2016:

Beware: How the Quiet Rise of Christian Dominionism Threatens America (Part 1)

To understand the threat of religion to our secular government all one has to do is to look at the current slate of Republican presidential candidates. God touting devil dodgers like Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and others openly admit their allegiance to ancient mythical beliefs while eschewing the constitutional guarantee of the separation of church and state.


This behavior among the nation’s politicians, both local and national, is becoming more widespread and to deny the implied threat to America can have frightening consequences.

Can you, after all, imagine a President Ted Cruz or a President Mike Huckabee? Both make a President Trump look like a patient, rational thinking, always diplomatic Rhodes Scholar. . .

When the theocratic movement reaches critical mass in America a Sunday law is sure to follow, with worldwide reverberations (Cf. Ex-Bishop of Durham calls for Christian “theocracy.”) Bible Christians educated in the prophetic timeline need to be wide-awake and watchful, not only of developments in America, but also in Palestine (Dan. 11:45.) It should be noted that the fulfillment of Dan. 11:45 is the last major signal that probation is about to close for all humanity (Dan. 12:1.) The final movements will be rapid ones, and probably begin before the fulfillment of Dan. 11:45. For those deluded by the rejection of Truth (2 Thess. 2:8-12,) there will be no hope of redemption. For those simply halting between two opinions it will be too late to receive the Word (John 1:1, 14,) Who is "the Bridegroom" (Matt. 25:10-12.) There will be a famine in the earth for the Word (Amos 8:11-12; cf. Hosea 4:6, Isa. 55:6, Hosea 5:6.)

It does appear that the United States is the major stage of prophetic events ushering in the final rapid movements of history (Rev. 13:14-17.) It is not as yet clear when they will begin. It is probable that dramatic end-time events will happen suddenly. Therefore current events in America demand intense observation and interpretation in the light of Bible prophecy.
