Sunday Laws

Sunday Laws | What are they and when will they be enforced?

Did you know that Sunday Laws will play a major role in the final events of this Earth’s history? 

Revelation 13 tells us about a coalition of the dragon (Satan) and two beasts’ powers that will enforce a religious law for everyone on this Earth. 

Those who do not obey this coalition will be forbidden to buy and sell, and ultimately a death decree will be given for them.

On the other side, Revelation 14 also warns us about the wrath of God which will be poured out on those who go along with this unbiblical union. 

Let’s explore together the details and what we need to know for the final events on this Earth, and hopefully make the right decision.

What are Sunday Laws also known as the Blue Laws?

Sunday laws also known as blue laws are laws that restrict and ban certain activities such as work or shopping on the first day of the week, Sunday.

These laws are already enforced in certain places in the United States, Canada, and some European countries. 

Sunday laws usually restrict the buying and selling of alcohol and other goods and forbid certain types of work and entertainment. 

The first Sunday law was enacted in 321 AD by the Roman Emperor – Constantine when he declared that all people should cease work on that day except for those involved in agriculture. (History of the Christian Church, 1902 ed., vol. 3, p. 380)

Which Countries Enforce Blue Laws today?

In certain parts of the United States, and Canada these laws are in place today.

In Europe, we find them in Austria, Germany, Norway and Poland where most stores are closed on Sundays. 

History of Sunday Laws

Dating back to A.D. 321, the history of Sunday laws traces its origins to the first known law prohibiting Sunday labor. These laws have deep religious origins, aiming to promote worship and provide a day of rest.

Beyond religious reasons, Sunday laws also have societal impacts, regulating activities to enhance labor productivity. However, they face legal challenges due to criticisms of being arbitrary and outdated.

Cultural attitudes towards these laws have shifted over time, reflecting changes in society’s views on religion and leisure. 

Understanding the historical context of Sunday laws provides insights into their continued relevance and impact on both businesses and personal freedoms.

Laws by Jurisdiction

When examining laws by jurisdiction related to Sunday regulations, it’s important to take into account the unique approaches taken by various countries.

Germany, Denmark, England and Wales, the Netherlands, and Northern Ireland each have distinct laws governing Sunday activities.

Understanding the differences in how these nations regulate Sunday practices sheds light on the diverse cultural and legal perspectives surrounding this issue.


Germany enforces shop closing laws on Sundays, which have been in place since 1956. These laws have had a significant cultural impact, reflecting Germany’s strong Christian traditions and valuing Sunday as a day of rest and worship.

Note: Important to know that the Bible does not endorse Sunday worship! The day God has blessed and sanctified is Saturday, the seventh day of the week! (Genesis 2:2-3)

Sunday worship is not biblical!

While aimed at promoting religious observance, they also influence labor productivity by providing workers with designated time off. However, legal challenges have arisen regarding the restrictions on commercial activities and individual freedoms.

Enforcement of these laws faces occasional issues, with debates surrounding the balance between religious practices and economic interests. Despite criticisms, the Sunday shop closing laws in Germany continue to be upheld, showcasing the intersection of religious values, societal norms, and legal regulations.

Sunday Law and Environmental Issues

In the last years, we have also seen more and more organizations such as Climate Sunday fight for Sunday rest. 

It is not any day of the week but Sunday! This organization is formed of various Churches and Church Groups throughout Britain and Ireland. 

What do they all have in common? Sunday worship. 

If we analyze in more detail, we see churches getting involved in an environmental issue. 

What if one day, the State and Church unite and due to different factors such as environmental issues, and excess work for employees, demand everyone to take Sunday off?

What if a National Sunday Law will be enforced for everyone, for the common good?

What if they go to the next step, and demand everyone to worship on this day? Like the upcoming controversial Project 2025 in the USA.  

What will happen to those who want to follow God and His commandments like the Biblical Sabbath on the seventh day of the week, Saturday?

The Bible tells us that they will be persecuted. Revelation 13 unfolds the great final battle between truth and error, between the commandments of God and the commandments of man.

Satan is very cunning. He is always coming as an angel of light, disguised as someone who wants the good of everyone.

Once he gets the power, then he starts to persecute those who follow God and obey Him only. 


Sunday laws also known as blue laws are laws that restrict and ban certain activities such as work or shopping on the first day of the week, Sunday.

This day of rest is getting exalted more and more. Environmental issues are being invoked, rest for workers, and many more arguments. 

The Bible warns us in Revelation 13 that two beasts will unite (the Papacy and the United States of America) to “causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. “ (Revelation 13:16-17)

This mark of the beast is none other than Sunday worship by law. Once it will be enforced by law, it will become the mark of the beast. 

The Papal Power openly claims that Sunday is their mark of authority:

“Sunday is our MARK of authority…the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact.”

Catholic Record of London, Ontario, September 1, 1923

God warns us to not receive the mark of the beast, in other words, to not go along with this false religious system. 

Those who choose to do so, will suffer His wrath in the form of the seven last plagues, and also lose their eternal salvation. (Revelation 14:9-11; Revelation 16)

But there will be a group of people who will not go along with this final deception of the enemy of souls. And the apostle John saw them in vision as conquerors (Revelation 20:4)

What will your choice be? Are you willing to stand for God and His truth?
