The Civil War Did Not End Slavery

The heart can be very cruel when Gods fear and love are removed. - E.G. White, The Great Controversy, p. 608.




In her signature book The Great Controversy Ellen White speaks of a last day revival of slavery. The events that she speaks of are, of course, still future. However, many often ask how it can be possible that slavery could be revived especially in a civilized country like the United States. The proposal appears to many as an outlandish prediction. Perhaps the End It Movement can settle those questions. As the video above shows, the End It Movement is a social movement with the mission to raise awareness of, and bring an end to, modern slavery. Not only is slavery still alive around the world, but even here in America it is growing by leaps and bounds. According to their website, "there are roughly 200,000 slaves working in America. And 17,000 more will be trafficked in the next year." Perhaps Ellen White was not so outlandish after-all.
 
The Apostle John also states in the book of Revelation that when Jesus returns, "the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains" (Revelation 6:15, emphasis added). Evidently for John, slavery will still be around at the time of Jesus' return. So the question is, What are we willing to do to help bring an end to slavery? While prophecy tells us that the return of Jesus will be the only event cataclysmic enough to deal an eternal death blow to slavery, we can still do a lot to bring freedom. And not only physical freedom, but spiritual freedom as well. I invite you today to join the fight to end slavery in whatever small way you can,
Slavery is Wrong.You know it. We know it. As a country, we've officially known it since 1863. But here's something you might not know -- Slavery still exists. We want every man, woman and child to know that there are 27 million men, women and children, just like them, living in the shadows. In brothels. In factories. In Quarries. Working as slaves. In 161 countries. Including our own. We are here to shine a light on slavery. No more bondage. No more sex trafficking. No more child laborers. No more, starting now. - enditmovement.com

  1. All from greed! Slave owners should be arrested and punished to the full extent the law allows, but what of the moral law broken? Do we have to wait for that justice?

    What of a corrupt banking system? Are they not also slave owners? Shouldn't they also be held accountable?

    And the same to politicians who spend the money of future generations? Or even allowed the USA Federal Reserve to be set up in the first place!
