The “TEMPORAL MILLENNIUM" and the United Nations 'Millennium Development Goals'.

"The wicked ... declared that they had the truth, that miracles were among them, that angels from heaven talked with them and walked with them, that great power and signs and wonders were performed among them, and that this was the TEMPORAL MILLENNIUM that they had been expecting so long. The whole world was converted and in harmony with the Sunday law (the mark of the beast).—Selected Messages 3:427, 428 (1884). {LDE 136.1}

Within days of being elected Pope, one of the first meetings of Francis with any world dignitary was with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in a private meeting at the Vatican April 9th 2013. They made plans to "advance social justice and accelerate work to meet the Millennium Development Goals", Ki-Moon said.

The Millennium Development Goals were agreed by world leaders in 2000 and set the challenge to the international community of achieving their goals by 2015. "I was especially privileged to meet Pope Francis as we mark 1,000 days to the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals," said Mr Ban.

The history of the Millennium Development goals goes back to Pope John Paul II and Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs who is Special Adviser to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on the Millennium Development Goals (MDG). Professor Sachs earned the respect of Pope John Paul II when in 1989 he advised Poland’s anti-communist Solidarity movement. The Government of Poland awarded Sachs with one of its highest honors in 1999, the Commanders Cross of the Order of Merit. Professor Sachs also advised Pope John Paul II on the encyclical Centesimus Annus.

This encyclical Centesimus Annus, was written on the 100th anniversary of the 'Rerum Novarum', an encyclical issued by Pope Leo XIII in 1891. Written in 1991 during the last days of the Cold War, Centesimus Annus specifically examines contemporaneous political and economic issues. The encyclical is partially a refutation of Marxist/communist ideology and a condemnation of the dictatorial regimes that practiced it. In partial fulfillment of Daniel's 11th chapter prophecy of the 'king of the North' (Papacy) overrunning the king of the south (atheism/ communism) (See; The Great Controversy Pg 269) Pope JPII compares socialism to consumerism, identifying atheism as the source of their common denial. The encyclical includes a defense of LABOR UNIONS.

The Lord's servant Mrs. Ellen White was shown "The trades unions will be one of the agencies that will bring upon this earth a time of trouble such as has not been since the world began." —Letter 200, 1903. {CL 10.2}

On July 7th 2009 Pope Benedict XVI called for a reform of the United Nations and financial bodies, giving them the "real teeth" needed to tackle economic and social injustice saying "There is urgent need of a true world political authority".

So here we are one and one half years away from when the United Nations and the Vatican have set a goal to accomplish the "Temporal Millennium", and in this the popes have been calling for the United Nations to help establish a true world wide political authority with real teeth. They have been calling for trade unions to organize labor etc, and all of these things have been given to us as warnings from God on what to look for just before the Mark of the beast is enforced.

If you look at the above quote from Selected Messages 3, 427, 428 (1884), you will notice that the wicked will also claim the 'signs and wonders' performed by evil angels as their support. The very first thing this pope did after being elected was offer flowers to the deceased mother of Jesus Mary because he believes she was behind his election. He completely supports the visions of Mary world wide.

We are going to see the coming of the Lord in this generation. We are in the time of the eighth king of Revelation 17 and soon the apparitions and satanic miracles will unite the nominal Christian world in opposition to God’s commandments.

Search me oh God and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts, see if there is any offensive way in me and lead me to the way everlasting. Amen

Notice here that the teaching of the "Temporal Millennium" is one of the false doctrines, along with Spiritualism and Sunday Sacredness, that the apostate churches adhere to, taught by Catholicism.

"The term Babylon, derived from Babel, and signifying confusion, is applied in Scripture to the various forms of false or apostate religion. But the message announcing the fall of Babylon (Revelation 14's second angels message) must apply to some religious body that was once pure, and has become corrupt. It cannot be the Romish Church which is here meant; for that church has been in a fallen condition for many centuries. But how appropriate the figure as applied to the Protestant churches, all professing to derive their doctrines from the Bible, yet divided into almost innumerable sects. The unity for which Christ prayed does not exist. Instead of one Lord, one faith, one baptism, there are numberless conflicting creeds and theories. Religious faith appears so confused and discordant that the world know not what to believe as truth. God is not in all this; it is the work of man,—the work of Satan. {4SP 232.2}
In Revelation 17, Babylon is represented as a woman, a figure which is used in the Scriptures as the symbol of a church. A virtuous woman represents a pure church, a vile woman an apostate church. Babylon is said to be a harlot; and the prophet beheld her drunken with the blood of saints and martyrs. The Babylon thus described represents Rome, that apostate church which has so cruelly persecuted the followers of Christ. But Babylon the harlot is the mother of daughters who follow her example of corruption. Thus are represented those churches that cling to the doctrines and traditions of Rome and follow her worldly practices, and whose fall is announced in the second angel’s message. {4SP 233.1}
The close relation of the church to Christ is represented under the figure of marriage. The Lord had joined his people to himself by a solemn covenant, he promising to be their God, and they pledging themselves to be his, and his alone. Said Paul, addressing the church, “I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” [2 Corinthians 11:2.] But when her confidence and affection were turned away from him, and she sought after vanity, and allowed the love of worldly things to separate her from God, she forfeited the privileges included in this peculiar and sacred relation. By the apostle James those who assimilate to the world are addressed as “adulterers and adulteresses.” [James 4:4.] {4SP 233.2}
The great sin charged against Babylon is, that she “made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” This cup of intoxication which she presents to the world, represents the false doctrines which she has accepted as the result of her unlawful connection with the great ones of the earth. Friendship with the world corrupts her faith, and in her turn she exerts a corrupting influence upon the world by teaching doctrines which are opposed to the plainest statements of the word of God. {4SP 234.2}
Prominent among these false doctrines is that of the temporal millennium,—a thousand years of spiritual peace and prosperity, in which the world is to be converted, before the coming of Christ. This siren song has lulled thousands of souls to sleep over the abyss of eternal ruin. {4SP 235.1}
The doctrine of the natural immortality of the soul has opened the way for the artful working of Satan through modern Spiritualism; and besides the Romish errors, purgatory, prayers for the dead, invocation of saints, etc., which have sprung from this source, it has led many Protestants to deny the resurrection and the Judgment, and has given rise to the revolting heresy of eternal torment, and the dangerous delusion of Universalism. {4SP 235.2}
And even more dangerous and more widely held than these are the assumptions that the law of God was abolished at the cross, and that the first day of the week is now a holy day, instead of the Sabbath of the fourth commandment. {4SP 235.3}
When faithful teachers expound the word of God, there arise men of learning, ministers professing to understand the Scriptures, who denounce sound doctrine as heresy, and thus turn away inquirers after truth. Were it not that the world is hopelessly intoxicated with the wine of Babylon, multitudes would be convicted and converted by the plain, cutting truths of the word of God. The sin of the world’s impenitence lies at the door of the church. {4SP 235.4}
God sent his professed people a message that would have corrected the evils which separated them from his favor. A state of union, faith, and love had been produced among those who from every denomination in Christendom received the Advent doctrine; and had the churches in general accepted the same truth, the same blessed results would have followed. But Babylon scornfully rejected the last means which Heaven had in reserve for her restoration, and then, with greater eagerness, she turned to seek the friendship of the world. {4SP 236.1}

Not yet, however, can it be said that ... “she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” She has not yet made all nations do this.... Not until this condition shall be reached, and the union of the church with the world shall be fully accomplished throughout Christendom, will the fall of Babylon be complete. The change is a progressive one, and the perfect fulfillment of Revelation 14:8 is yet future.—The Great Controversy, 389, 390 (1911). {LDE 198.4}
When do "her sins reach unto heaven"? [Revelation 18:2-5] When the law of God is finally made void by legislation.—The Signs of the Times, June 12, 1893. {LDE 198.5}

[Revelation 18:1, 2, 4, quoted.] This scripture points forward to a time when the announcement of the fall of Babylon, as made by the second angel of Revelation 14 (verse 8), is to be repeated, with the additional mention of the corruptions which have been entering the various organizations that constitute Babylon, since that message was first given, in the summer of 1844.... These announcements, uniting with the third angel’s message, constitute the final warning to be given to the inhabitants of the earth.... {LDE 199.2}
The sins of Babylon will be laid open. The fearful results of enforcing the observances of the church by civil authority, the inroads of spiritualism, the stealthy but rapid progress of the papal power—all will be unmasked. By these solemn warnings the people will be stirred. Thousands upon thousands will listen who have never heard words like these.—The Great Controversy, 603, 604, 606 (1911). {LDE 199.3}

This warning against the Temporal Millennium teaching is part of the third angels message that God has just recently taught me to illustrate along with the other elements or spiritualism and Sunday observance warnings.

Search me oh God and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts, see if there is any offensive way in me and lead me to the way everlasting. Amen

"Under the guidance of pope and priest, multitudes were taught to trust to their good works to save them. They were ever looking to themselves, their minds dwelling upon their sinful condition, afflicting soul and body, yet finding no relief. Thousands spent their lives in convent cells. By oft-repeated fasts and scourgings, by midnight vigils, by prostration upon cold, damp stones, by long pilgrimages—haunted with the fear of God’s avenging wrath—many suffered on, until exhausted nature gave way. Without one ray of hope they sank into the tomb." {HF 47.3}

Search me oh God and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts, see if there is any offensive way in me and lead me to the way everlasting. Amen

By a recent decretal an indulgence had been promised by the pope to all who should ascend upon their knees “Pilate’s staircase,” said to have been descended by our Saviour on leaving the Roman judgment hall and to have been miraculously conveyed from Jerusalem to Rome. Luther was one day devoutly climbing these steps, when suddenly a voice like thunder seemed to say to him: “The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17. He (Martin Luther) sprang to his feet and hastened from the place in shame and horror. That text never lost its power upon his soul. From that time he saw more clearly than ever before the fallacy of trusting to human works for salvation, and the necessity of constant faith in the merits of Christ. His eyes had been opened, and were never again to be closed, to the delusions of the papacy. When he turned his face from Rome he had turned away also in heart, and from that time the separation grew wider, until he severed all connection with the papal church. {GC 125.1}

Search me oh God and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts, see if there is any offensive way in me and lead me to the way everlasting. Amen
