What do rock bands, music festivals, and the long tradition of Sunday rest have in common? Apparently, more than we think.
On February 4th, the Scottish Sun said that “BRITAIN’S most remote music festival will end on a Saturday night — so God-fearing islanders can stick to their tradition of doing nothing on a Sunday.”
The Scottish Sun went on to say: “Primal Scream, founded by Scots rocker Bobby Gillespie, 61, are to headline the first Midnight Sun Weekender on picturesque castle grounds in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis.”
“They will be joined by The Pretenders and legendary Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty, 77, who’ll close the other nights of the three-day bash.”
“The fest runs from Thursday, May 25 to Saturday, May 27, in order to respect the residents’ custom of keeping the Sabbath clear — as shops shut, buses don’t run and it’s even frowned upon to hang out a washing.”
“Co-founder Charlie Clark, 43, who grew up locally, says its important to recognize tradition.”
“He told The Scottish Sun on Sunday: “We’ve carefully chosen the days for exactly that reason.”
“It’s something I always loved when I was wee.“
“There’s a lot to be said about taking the time to do nothing.“
“There was always a unique atmosphere and energy on a Sunday — it’s restorative.”
“It will be the biggest event of its kind in the Western Isles.
First off, I want to point out how the actual article title from the Scottish Sun has “DAY OF REST” boldly stated within it, referring to Sunday! Yikes! This should give us a chilly reminder, that all of the world will be deceived when it comes to the final test of allegiance between man’s word and traditions, and God’s Word and His true commandments.
Each week there are articles coming out about Sunday being the day of rest. These media outlets and events are not even Christian, nor associated with a church, and they still call Sunday the “day of rest.”
Literally, our entire societal structure is being set up to receive the Mark of the Beast with open arms, and yes, even rock and roll festivals.
There may be some wondering, or thinking; “but why is this such an important issue?”, “why are you speaking on this?” or “What’s the big deal, I believe in Jesus?”
The “big deal” is this; souls!
You can shout “I believe in Jesus! I believe in Jesus!” until you are blue in the face, but that won’t save you from the controversy that will soon come upon our land! Think of all who will accept the Mark of the Beast and yet they “believe” in Jesus. You must walk out the actions to back that belief. You must align yourself to God’s holy precepts. You must walk in obedience to His word. When that inevitable decree comes, that commands all to receive the Mark in their forehead (in your mind, by decision) or their right hand (by forced compliance), what are you going to do?
Those who receive the Mark of the Beast will receive the 7 final plagues of Revelation, will come short of eternal life, and in the end, will perish!
But, I thank God, that He has warned us of these things beforehand. The final events will be rapid and are coming to pass before our very eyes!
John 14:29 “And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.“
