The Question Before Us Now. --The Sabbath question is to be the issue in the great final conflict, in which all the world will act a part. Men have honored Satan's principles above the principles that rule in the heavens. They have accepted the spurious sabbath, which Satan has exalted as the sign of his authority. But Elohim has set His seal upon His royal requirement. Each Sabbath institution, both true and false, bears the name of its author, an ineffaceable mark that shows the authority of each.
What principles that rule in the heavens? His moon which he appointed for moedim, or for appointments. Marking when time begins, each month refreshing the weekly cycle, so that the 2nd day of the moon is the first of the six working days.
