The last Saturday and Sunday in the month are set aside for various Festivals, and
"the Royal Seer" hears a voice which resounds all over the earth, saying:--
"Remember and observe to keep the Sabbath Day and the Lord's Day Holy"
(page 48). This is called the "The Hatov Sabbath."
"Lastly, set apart a room for an Hatov Sanctuary, and an Assembly Place. Hang up
the tablet of the Hatov Mystery on the East Wall and cover it with a veil with seven rings.
The veil should have an inscription on it `The Hidden One'."
Anyone who has access to Two Babylons" (by Hislop) can discover that Saturn was
"The Hidden One", and Saturn has many names. He is Apis, the calf worshipped by
Israel before Sinai. He is Pluto, god of the underworld. He is Satan Himself, and
Saturday is a survival of his worship, being of course Saturn's day.
There is much more that might have been quoted, but all is in the same direction. It
looks to man to accomplish what Christ alone can do. It places man where Scripture
places Christ, and without being uncharitable we have no option but to repudiate the
"Royal Religion" with the words of inspired truth.
"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that
which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed" (Gal. 1: 8).
On page 24 the Royal Seer tells us that he "rubbed his eyes and was astounded".
What he really needs is that the Lord should open his blind eyes to see his sinnership, and
need of the Saviour, His cross and His resurrection, for in spite of the repeated emphasis
throughout the book of "The Name" (Hatov), it still stands written:--
"There is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be
saved" (Acts 4: 12).
