we are told that the world will unite behind the "mark of the beast". We know that mark to be the universal Sunday keeping law. How close are we to that?
1. In order for the Sunday law to be world wide, every country must agree to it. How close are we to that? Most of Europe all ready has mandatory Sunday laws.
2. In order for the Sunday law to be world wide, every Sabbath keeping entity must agree to it. That means that the government of Israel and all Jews must agree with it. All Sabbath keeping religions will accept it: Seventh-day Adventist, Seventh-day Baptists, Seventh-day Lutheran's, Church of God - 7th day, Seventh-day Pentecostals, etc., etc.
