“The national Sunday law will be called for by the people as an attempt to return to temporal prosperity. ‘It will be declared that men are offending God by violation of the Sunday Sabbath; that this sin has brought calamities which will not cease until Sunday observance shall be strictly enforced; and that those who present the claims of the 4th commandment, thus destroying reverence for Sunday, are troublers of the people, preventing their restoration to divine faver and temporal prosperity’. Great controversy, 590 Emphasis added.

The tragedy of natural calamities will eventually require funds we do not have. People’s losses will not be covered by the insurance upon which they depend. Hurricane Andrew swept through South Florida at a cost of billions of dollars. Just a year later, the Northridge earthquake required $20 billion for rebuilding. If these natural disasters occur more frequent and disastrous, it will cost our government more and more money until there is none left. People will lose their homes and possessions and there will be no money to rebuild. This could lead to a severe depression. Then the nation will become spiritually concerned and think to please an offended God, however, it is not God but the devil who brings these miseries to us.

The world will be tempted to think that God's people are preventing them from gaining divine favor and economic prosperity. For this reason, we must be urgent in our preparation. ‘The Protestant world have set up an idol Sabbath in the place where God Sabbath should be, and they are treading in the footsteps of the Papacy. For this reason I see the necessity of the people of God moving out of the cities into retired country places, where they may cultivate the land and raise their own produce. Thus they may bring their children up with simple healthful habits. I see the necessity of making haste to get all things ready for the crisis. Country Living, 21” (Jere Franklin, You Can Survive, 2002, p.124-125)
