The Mark of the Beast - 666 - is a "mindset" (Spiritual Armageddon) that adopts some or all the doctrines of the papacy (Catholicism means Universalism = one world religion = EcuMENTALism) and takes form in thoughts, words, actions become habits that determine your character which determines your destiny = receiving the 7 last plagues - The counterfeit of the teachings of Jesus Christ "Let this MIND be IN YOU that was ALSO IN Christ Jesus" Philippians 2:5 KJV.

Jesus Christ who, if his teachings were followed (a sermon in shoes), could also grant eternal life. What is the MARK OF THE BEAST? Watch this short video here to find out:

The Mark Of The Beast Is NOT A Microchip! by an amazing boy: 


"What is the seal of the living God, which is placed in the foreheads of His people? It is a mark (thoughts and actions=believing and doing ACTS 24:14! Asking Jesus to impute HIS RISEN LIFE to you every morning first thing - "Take me Oh Lord as Wholly Thine. I lay ALL my plans at thy feet. Use me today in thy service. Abide with me and let all my work be wrought in Thee") which angels, but not human eyes, can read; for the destroying angel must see this mark of redemption" (Letter 126, 1898).

Say: “Lord, take my heart; for I cannot give it. It is Thy property. Keep it pure, for I cannot keep it for Thee. Save me in spite of myself, my weak, unchristlike self. Mold me, fashion me, raise me into a pure and holy atmosphere, where the rich current of Thy love can flow through my soul" Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 159.3.

Say: “Lord, help me to do my best. Teach me how to do better work. Give me energy and cheerfulness. Help me to bring into my service the loving ministry of the Saviour” The Ministry of Healing, p. 474.

Say: “Take me, O Lord, as wholly Thine. I lay all my plans at Thy feet. Use me today in Thy service. Abide with me, and let all my work be wrought in Thee” Steps to Christ, p. 70.1.

“Say, I come to present myself to God in the name of him who has died for me. I give my heart to Jesus, and I desire his blessing and his Spirit;" and the power (character=thoughts and feelings) of God will come upon you” ST FEB. 22, 1892.

"Say, I have done as Thou hast said. I present Thy Promise, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you"  Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 147.2.

“The third angel's message was, and still is, a WARNING to the saints to "hold fast," and not go back, and "receive" the marks which the virgin band got rid of, during the second angel's cry.” A Word to the "Little Flock" JAMES WHITE, Topsham, Maine April 21, 1847.


Ellen White agreed with her husband as well: She said the SDA church movement had already become laodicean by 1852  “The words addressed to the Laodicean Church, describe their present condition perfectly.” {Ellen G. White, RH June 10, 1852, par. 2}.] 

"As foretold in the eighteenth of Revelation, the third angel's message is to be proclaimed with great power by those who give the final warning against the beast and his image." 8T 118 (1904).

"The power which stirred the people so mightily in the 1844 movement will again be revealed. The third angel's message will go forth, not in whispered tones, but with a loud voice."5T 252 (1885).

"I saw that this message will close with power and strength far exceeding the midnight cry."EW 278 (1858).

Do 501c3 SDA's ALREADY have the MARK of the BEAST unless they repent and turn from worshiping the God of the Papacy? 

Be careful of not wanting to investigate truth, saying in this attitude: "I'm good" or "I'm ready". 

"The sanctified (practicing/doing truth) soul will not be content to remain in ignorance, but will desire to walk in the light and to seek for greater lightSelected Messages Book 1, p. 317.2.

  • "No greater delusion can deceive the human mind than that which leads men to indulge a self-confident spirit, to believe that they are right and in the light, when they are drawing away from God's people, and their cherished light is darkness" Testimony Treasures Volume 1, p. 109.

    "The work of sanctification is the work of a lifetime; it must go on continually; but 
    this work cannot go on in the heart while the light on any part of the truth is rejected or neglected. The sanctified soul will not be content to remain in ignorance, but will desire to walk in the light and to seek for greater light. As a miner digs for gold and silver, so the follower of Christ will seek for truth as for hidden treasures, and will press from light to a greater light, ever increasing in knowledge. He will continually grow in grace and in the knowledge of the truth. Self must be overcome. Every defect of character must be discerned in God’s great mirror. We may discover whether or not we are condemned by God’s standard of character."  Selected Messages Book 1, p. 317.2

  • "The words of John in (1 John 1:8) came forcibly to my mind, "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." I was shown that those who triumphantly claim to be sinless, show by their very boasting that they are far from being without taint of sin. The more clearly fallen man comprehends the character of Christ, the more distrustful will he be of himself, and the more imperfect will his works appear to him, in contrast with those which marked the life of the spotless Redeemer. But those who are far from Jesus, those whose spiritual perceptions are so clouded by error that they cannot comprehend the character of the great Exemplar, conceive of Him as altogether such a one as themselves, and dare to talk of their own perfection of holiness. But they are far from God; they know little of themselves, and less of Christ." {LS 84.3}

The Seal & The Mark (TN) - Nader Mansour

 “Shall we wait until God’s judgments fall upon the transgressor before we tell him how to avoid them? Where is our faith in the word of God?” Testimonies for the Church, Vol 9, pg 20


Adversity builds emotional/spiritual muscle, creates relatable leaders, and prepares us for greatness. Don’t faint in the day of adversity. Remember your ABCs—Adversity Builds Character. The Lord draws near to us in tough times and helps us trust Him in days of difficulty. Hardship is sometimes a help to holiness, and roadblocks are signposts directing us in a better way. Lean on the Lord in adversity, learn from Him, and let Him lead you through it.

Stay with God always.: "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith1 John 5:4.

God leads His people on, step by step. He brings them up to different points calculated to manifest what is in the heart. Some endure at one point, but fall off at the next. At every advanced point the heart is tested and tried a little closer. If the professed people of God find their hearts opposed to this straight work, it should convince them that they have a work to do to overcome, if they would not be spewed out of the mouth of the Lord. Said the angel: “God will bring His work closer and closer to test and prove every one of His people.” Some are willing to receive one point; but when God brings them to another testing point, they shrink from it and stand back, because they find that it strikes directly at some cherished idol. Here they have opportunity to see what is in their hearts that shuts out Jesus. They prize something higher than the truth, and their hearts are not prepared to receive Jesus. Individuals are tested and proved a length of time to see if they will sacrifice their idols and heed the counsel of the True Witness.... Those who come up to every point, and stand every test, and overcome, be the price what it may, have heeded the counsel of the True Witness, and they will receive the latter rain (perfecting testing messages), and thus be fitted for translation.

God proves His people in this world. This is the fitting-up place to appear in His presence. Here, in this world, in these last days, persons will show what power affects their hearts and controls their actions. If it is the power of divine truth, it will lead to good works. It will elevate the receiver, and make him noblehearted and generous, like His divine Lord. But if evil angels control the heart, it will be seen in various ways. The fruit will be selfishness, covetousness, pride, and evil passions" Lift Him Up, p. 375.2.

But beware of that which the old writers called the world’s trinity—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. {Lt43-1898 (May 19, 1898) par. 25}

"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world" 1 John 2:16.

Problems patiently endured will work for our spiritual perfecting.

Satan's intellectual concepts through Nimrod and the Papacy and now the third babylon, the SDA 501c3 church denomination in America has the SAME MIND/ideas/beliefs of Satan himself (Rev 3:9; 2:9 = synagogue of Satan): who, if his teachings were followed, would mean eternal death.

"God alone has the power to forgive sins. If we do not deliver this message to the unconverted, our neglect may prove their ruin" NYI June 12, 1907, par. 2.

"Christ died to save sinners, not in their sins, but from their sins. The warning given in Revelation shows us the terrible consequence of transgression. By lips that will not lie, God’s law is declared to be holy, just, and good. Our duty to obey this law is to be the burden of the last message (Rev 14:6-12/Rev 18:4/Matt 25:6) of mercy." 19MR 182.7

'To stand in defense of truth and righteousness when the majority forsake us, to fight the battles of the Lord when champions are few - this will be our test'" (Review and Herald, Jan.11, 1887).

Do you possess imperishable riches?

When God gave His Son to our world, He endowed human beings with imperishable riches—riches compared with which the treasured wealth of men since the world began is nothingness. Christ came to the earth and stood before the children of men with the hoarded love of eternity, and this is the treasure that, through our connection with Him, we are to receive, to reveal, and to impart. {Ministry of Healing 37.1}

"The image of the beast (MINDSET = mental/intellectual concept, same ideas, same mind, same beliefs as Papacy in the 501c3 church denominations in America) WILL be formed before probation closes; for it is to be the great test for the people of God, by which their eternal destiny will be decided" Maranatha p.165.

"This is the test that the people of God must have before they are sealed. All who prove their loyalty to God by observing His law, and refusing to accept a spurious sabbath, will rank under the banner of the Lord God Jehovah, and will receive the seal of the living God. Those who yield the truth of heavenly origin, and accept the Sunday sabbath, will receive the mark of the beast..." Maranatha p.165.

As the storm approaches, a large class who have professed faith in the third message, but have not been sanctified (practice it in their daily choices/habits) through it, abandon their position, and take refuge under the banner of the powers of darkness. By uniting with the world and partaking of its spirit, they come to view matters in nearly the same light; and when the test is brought, they are prepared to choose the easy, popular side. Men of talent and pleasing address, who once rejoiced in the truth, employ their powers to deceive and mislead souls. They become the most bitter enemies of their former brethren. When Sabbath-keepers are brought before the courts to answer for their faith, these apostates are the most efficient agents of Satan to misrepresent and accuse them, and by false reports and insinuations to stir up the rulers against them”(4SP427).

"I saw those who were in darkness (501c3 foolish virgin laodicean Adventist tare stony ground hearers only) thrusting them (the 5 wise virgins, the remnant who came out of the 501c3 Adventist churches/bundles)with side and with shoulder. Then many who cherished the sacred light, broke the cords which confined them and stood out separated from those companies (tare bundles=501c3 SDA churches). As they were doing this, men belonging to the different companies and revered by them passed through, some with pleasing words, and others with wrathful looks and threatening gestures, and fastened the cords which were weakening. These men (501c3 Adventist preachers/leaders/teachers) were constantly saying, “God is with us. We stand in the light. We have the truth.” I inquired who these men were, and was told that they were (501c3 SDA) ministers and leading men who had rejected the light themselves, and were unwilling that others should receive it." EARLY WRITINGS, PAGE 241

"A glorious light then rested down upon these companies, to enlighten all who would receive it. Some of those who were in darkness received the light and rejoiced. Others (501c3 Adventists) resisted the light from heaven, saying that it was sent to lead them astray. The light passed away from them, and they were left in darkness.Those who had received the light from Jesus joyfully cherished the increase of precious light which was shed upon them. Their faces beamed with holy joy, while their gaze was directed upward to Jesus with intense interest, and their voices were heard in harmony with the voice of the angel, “Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come.” As they raised this cry, I saw those who were in darkness thrusting them with side and with shoulder. Then many who cherished the sacred light, broke the cords which confined them and stood out separated from those companies. As they were doing this, men belonging to the different companies (501c3 Adventist preachers/leaders) and revered by them passed through, some with pleasing words, and others with wrathful looks and threatening gestures, and fastened the cords which were weakening. These men (501c3 Adventist preachers/leaders/teachers) were constantly saying, “God is with us.

same as the very first vision of Ellen White: 

"The light behind them went out, leaving their feet in perfect darkness." Early Writings, p. 14.1Spiritual Gifts, vol. 2, p. 30.2

"Others rashly denied the light behind (truths given in 1841, '42, '43 and 1844 (15MR Ltr 75 1905)) them, and said it was not God (changed God's to trinity (specifically: "Tritheism") of gods =  is the god of the dead (eternal death) if you follow this teaching of Isiris aka "God the Son" of the triad of gods aka Trinity of gods) that had led them out so far. The light behind them went out, leaving their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and lost sight of the mark and of Jesus, and fell off the path down into the dark and wicked world below."Testimonies for the Church, vol. 1, p. 58.4

What is the seal of the living God, which is placed in the foreheads of His people? It is a mark which angels, but not human eyes, can read; for the destroying angel must see this mark of redemption (Letter 126, 1898).

There's more to the Seal of God than just the Sabbath....and more to the Mark of the Beast too. … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUQgLKkaVVM 

A picture is worth a thousand words: 



THE THIRD ANGEL’S MESSAGE:

“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship

the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus” Revelation 14:9-12.

THE LAST MESSAGE OF MERCY TO A PERISHING WORLD

"The third angel’s message has been sent forth to the world, warning men against receiving the mark of the beast or of his image in their foreheads or in their hands. To
receive this mark means to come to the SAME DECISION as the beast has done, and to advocate the SAME IDEAS, in direct opposition to the Word of God
RH April 27, 1911, Art. B, par. 25. [SAME IDEAS LIKE SUN-DAY SACREDNESS, BELIEF IN A TRINITY, ETC]

"Babylon will make all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication (errors). Every nation will be involved. Of this time John the Revelator declares: [Revelation 18:3-7; 17:13, 14, quoted]. "These have one mind." There will be a universal bond of union, one great harmony, a confederacy of Satan's forces. "And shall give their power and strength unto the beast." Thus is manifested the same arbitrary, oppressive power against religious liberty--freedom to worship God according to the dictates of conscience--as was manifested by the papacy, when in the past it persecuted those who dared to refuse to conform with the religious rites and ceremonies of Romanism."--3SM 392 (1891) {LDE 136.4}

J. H. Merle D’Aubigne (download his book here "History of the Reformation"in his history of Protestantism says this:
Popery is the perversion of church authority into mental tyranny.”  When I read that some years ago my heart nearly stopped for we had seen popery in Adventism Big time!

"Many claim that a position of trust in the church gives them authority to dictate what other men shall believe and what they shall do. This claim God does not sanction" The Desire of Ages, p. 414.3.


A great crisis awaits the people of God. A great crisis awaits the world. The most momentous struggle of all the ages is before us. Events which for more than half a century we have, upon the authority of the prophetic Word, declared to be impending, are now taking place before our eyes. An amendment to the Constitution restricting liberty of conscience, has long been urged upon the legislators of the nation; and the question of enforcing Sunday observance has become one of national importance. Are we ready for the issue involved in the Sunday movement?

Many who are working for Sunday enforcement have never understood the claims of the Bible Sabbath, and the false foundation on which the Sunday institution rests. And they are blinded to the results of Sunday legislation. They do not see that it would be a blow against religious liberty. But any movement in favor of religious legislation is really an act of concession to the Papacy, which for so many ages has steadily warred against liberty of conscience. Sunday owes its existence as a so-called Christian institution to the “mystery of iniquity;” and its enforcement will be a virtual recognition of the principles which are the very corner-stone of Romanism. When our nation shall so abjure the principles of its government as to enact a Sunday law, Protestantism will in this act join hands with the Papacy; it will be giving life to the tyranny which has long been eagerly watching its opportunity to spring again into active despotism.

As this struggle progresses, it may appear to human sight that Satan is triumphant and that truth is overborne with falsehood and error. In the country which has been an asylum for the conscience-oppressed servants of God and defenders of His truth, religious freedom may be placed in jeopardy, and the people over whom God has spread His shield, may meet suffering and trial. But God would have us recall His dealings with His people in the past, to save them from their enemies, and trust in Him. He has always chosen extremities, when there seemed no possible hope for deliverance from Satan’s workings, for the display of His power. Man’s necessity is God’s opportunity.

While the Protestant world is making concessions to Rome, and danger is increasing on every hand, let us arouse to comprehend the situation, and to see the contest before us in its true bearings. Let the watchmen lift up the voice, and give with clearness the message which is present truth for this time. “For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?” Let us show the people where we are in prophetic history, and seek to arouse the spirit of true Protestantism, awaking the world to a sense of the value of the religious liberty they have so long enjoyed" ST November 28, 1900, par. 2.

What are some of the coming to the SAME MIND, the SAME IDEAS or teaching of the BEAST that has been adopted by ALL the 501c3 churches that USED to protest some or all of these false doctrines that are going to cause most of the world to be lost?


DO NOT MISS ANY OF THESE AMAZING AND CHARACTER BUILDING SERMONS:


Examples of the false doctrines ("characteristics of the beast itself--the papacy" (GC443); 501c3 non-profit/tax-exempt church denominations (second beast ("another beast") per Rev 13:11 = The image to the beast represents ANOTHER religious body clothed with similar powers." 4SP277.2) have adopted one or more of the ideas/concepts/beliefs of the papacy (first beast's doctrines or SAME MIND/SAME IDEAS THAT REPRESENT THE MARK OF THE BEAST FOUND IN THE THIRD ANGEL'S WARNING IN REVELATION 14:9-12):

The doctrine of the trinity which the Papacy admits to be her central pillar doctrine (which is accepted by most of Christendom), Sunday sacredness, immortality of the soul, eternal hell, worshiping Mary and the saints, transubstantiation, sprinkling, sacrament of confession, infallibility of the pope, etc...

From the trinity of gods doctrine springs ALL the other false doctrines:

A pure and noble life, a life of victory over appetite and lust, is possible to everyone who will unite his weak, wavering human will to the omnipotent, unwavering will (daily choices/habits) of God. MH 176.

"When the heart is cleansed from sin, Christ is placed on the throne (our mind) that self-indulgence and love of earthly treasure once occupiedThe image of Christ is seen in the expression of the countenance. The work of sanctification is carried forward in the soul. Self-righteousness is banished. There is seen the putting on of the new man, which after Christ is created in righteousness and true holiness."—The Review and Herald, September 11, 1900.Counsels on Stewardship, p. 27

"The remnant that purify their souls by obeying the truth gather strength from the trying process, exhibiting the beauty of holiness amid the surrounding apostasy."Selected Messages Book 2, p. 380.3

"There are many precious truths contained in the Word of God, but it is 'PRESENT TRUTH' that the flock needs now." Early Writings, p 63.

Jesus Accepts Our Intentions “When it is in the heart to obey God, when efforts are put forth to this end, Jesus accepts this disposition and effort as man’s best service, and HE MAKES UP FOR THE DEFICIENCY WITH HIS OWN DIVINE MERIT. But He will not accept those who claim to have faith in Him, and yet are disloyal to His Father’s commandment. We hear a great deal about faith, but we need to hear a great deal more about works. Many are deceiving their own souls by living an easygoing, accommodating, crossless religion. But Jesus says, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”—The Signs of the Times, June 16, 1890.

"There is before the church (individual people who love God and keep His comandments) the dawn of a bright, glorious day, if she will put on the robe of Christ’s righteousness, withdrawing from all allegiance to the world. God calls upon His faithful ones, who believe in Him, to talk courage to those who are unbelieving and hopeless. Turn to the Lord, ye prisoners of hope. Seek strength from God, the living God. Show an unwavering, humble faith in His power and His willingness to save. When in faith we take hold of His strength, He will change, wonderfully change, the most hopeless, discouraging outlook. He will do this for the glory of His name." PROPHETS AND KINGS, PAGE 260 

"I turn my face to the Sun of Righteousness, and dwell with pleasure upon the Saviour’s willingness to pardon my sins and sanctify my soul. It is by beholding that we may reflect Christs image. The transforming power of grace can make me a partaker of the divine nature. On Christ the glory of God has shone, and by looking upon Christ, contemplating His self-sacrifice, remembering that in Him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily, the believer is drawn closer and closer to the Source of power. His love in our hearts leads us to seek for lost sheep. By working to win souls to Christ, believers give evidence of their love for Him. The path that He trod is the one in which His children will choose to follow." MANUSCRIPT RELEASES VOLUME NINETEEN [NOS. 1360-1419], PAGE 295.

“Everyone who has a realizing sense of what it means to be a Christian, will purify himself from everything that weakens and defiles. All the habits of his life will be brought into harmony with the requirements of the Word of truth, and he will not only believe, but will work out his own salvation with fear and trembling, while submitting to the molding of the Holy Spirit (Jesus IS that Spirit 2 Cor 3:17).”—The Review and Herald, March 6, 1888.

"Let not the days pass by and precious opportunities be lost of seeking the Lord with all the heart and mind and soul. If we accept not the truth in the love of it, we may be among the number who will see the miracles wrought by Satan in these last days, and believe them.—Letter 136, April 27, 1906, to Brethren Butler, Daniells, and Irwin. (Ellen White, 1906, This Day with God, page 126)



In our study we have come to learn that a church can fall and become fallen Babylon by meeting one of the three following conditions:“In amazement they hear the testimony that Babylon is the church, fallen because of her errors and sins, because of her rejection of the truth sent to her from heaven.” GC 606.

"The message of the fall of Babylon, as given by the second angel, is repeated, with the additional
 mention of the corruption's which have been entering the churches  since 1844. The work of this angel comes in at the right time to join in the last great work of the third angel's message as it swells to loud cry" EW277.1.

"The message of the fall of Babylon, as given by the second angel, IS AGAIN GIVEN, with the addition of the corruptions which have been entering the [501c3 SDA] churches since 1844. The work of this angel comes in at the right time, and joins in the last great work of the third angel’s message, as it swells into a loud cry. And the people of God are fitted up every where to stand in the hour of temptation which they are soon to meet. I saw a great light resting upon them, and they united in the message, and fearlessly proclaimed with great power the third angel’s message" Spiritual Gifts, vol. 1, p. 193.2.

"Angels (Faithful men and women symbolize angels) were sent to aid the mighty angel from heaven, and I heard voices which seemed to sound everywhere, “Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” This message seemed to be an addition to the third message, joining it as the midnight cry joined the second angel’s message in 1844Early Writings, p. 277.2.

"Those who think that the church militant is the church triumphant make a GREAT MISTAKEThe Upward Look, p. 152.3.

"Because thou sayest, I am rich (“The church will appear as about to fall, BUT SHE WILL NOT FALL!” ), and increased with goods (God is with us. We stand in the light. We have the truth.), and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked" Revelation 3:17.

"So, because you are lukewarm--neither hot nor cold--I am about to spit you out of my mouth" Revelation 3:16.

How can there be such confident assurances today, as we clearly hear the denominational leaders trumpet from the pulpits of the land, “She is the ship of God, perhaps listing badly, yet we are assured that she is sailing steadfastly into the heavenly port…. STAY WITH THE SHIP!” “She is the ‘apple of God’s eye,’ ‘the remnant church.’ DON’T GIVE UP, NOW!” “Defective and feeble though she be, -- indeed, she is not perfect, -- but God will purify His church. THE APOSTATES WILL LEAVE! DON’T BE FOUND OUTSIDE WITH THEM.” “The church will appear as about to fall, BUT SHE WILL NOT FALL!” 

Does this sound familiar?!!! The messenger of the Lord warned us of this very thing happening a very long time ago. "These men were constantly saying, “God is with us. We stand in the light. We have the truth.” I inquired who these men were, and was told that they were ministers and leading men who had rejected the light themselves, and were unwilling that others should receive it." EARLY WRITINGS, PAGE 241

"They (God's remnant people) resisted the efforts which were made to fasten the cords tighter and REFUSED TO HEED the repeated assertions: “God is with us.” “We have the truth with us.” Early Writings, p. 240.2

Dear fellow believers,

Yesterday I composed a list of more than a dozen theological errors
that have gradually crept into the Seventh-day Adventist church,
especially after the Evangelical discussions with a few GC leaders
in 1955 and 1956. As you know, the SDA church surrendered most
of it pillar beliefs. A skeleton remains...

Keep in mind this is only a short and abbreviated list of theological
issues and irregularities of the SDA church. You can think of more
errors, I am sure. I do not think I want to write a big book on these
issues, for then no one would read it.

After looking at this long list, I cannot see how a true Seventh-day
Adventist can worship in the nominal SDA church today with so
many false beliefs beginning with its false trinitarian baptismal
formula added by the Catholic church as history indicates. Acts
2:38 states that we should baptize in Jesus' name. Many other
similar verses can be quoted.

If you wish a DVD or hard copy of Trends in Adventism I and II,
please contact Malcolm McCrillis or me for a hard copy if you
are interested.

May the Lord of heaven bless you and protect you where you
are. Sara and I hope to see you again soon.

Looking forward to the blessed hope of the Lord's return,

Sara and Bill Van Grit williamvangrit @ gmail.com

We believe that as we near the end of this earth's history "one subject will swallow up every other -- Christ our righteousness."  Righteousness of Christ is the TRUTH about the incarnation of the Son of God enabling the adopted children of God to be doers of His Word.

"Of Babylon at this time it is declared, “Her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” [Revelation 18:5.] She has filled up the measure of her guilt, and destruction is about to fall upon her. But God still has a people in Babylon; and before the visitation of his judgments, these faithful ones must be called out, that they “partake not of her sins, and receive not of her plagues.” Hence the movement symbolized by the angel coming down from Heaven, lightening the earth with his glory, and crying mightily with a strong voice, announcing the sins of Babylon. In connection with his message the call is heard, “Come out of her, my people.” As these warnings join the third angel’s message, it swells to a loud cry" The Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 4, p. 422.1 .

Examples of the MARK OF THE BEAST'S (666)- SAME MIND - SAME IDEAS - SAME BELIEFS THAT HAVE BEEN ADOPTED BY ALL NON-PROFIT/TAX EXEMPT 501c3 DENOMINATIONS WHICH IS "ANOTHER BEAST" PER REV 13:11 AND WILL FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF HER MOTHER WHEN SHE PERSECUTED THE SAINTS DURING THE DARK AGES 538AD to 1798 AD TO BE REPEATED FROM MARCH 19, 2013 TO SEPT 19, 2016 to be cut short 25 days to AUG 5, 2016 - this is when I believe the 7 last 
plagues start and probation closes for the whole world - probation closes for the "HOUSE OF GOD" compares to when Esther entered the "HOUSE ROYAL" per Esther 2:16. NOT MUCH TIME TO LEARN AND UNLEARN - WE MUST STEP FAST SAID THE ANGEL TO GET RID OF THE SAME MIND, SAME BELIEFS, SAME IDEAS AS THE FIRST AND SECOND BEAST HAVE BEEN TEACHING US FOR DECADES - SINCE BABYHOOD.


"At the transfiguration, Jesus was glorified by His Father. We hear Him say: “Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in Him.” John 13:31. Thus before His betrayal and crucifixion He was strengthened for His last dreadful sufferings. As the members of the body of Christ approach the period of their last conflict, “the time of Jacob’s trouble,” (Aug 5, 2016 - see this page for more info about this here) they will grow up into Christ, and will partake largely of His spirit. As the third message swells to a loud cry, and as great power and glory attend the closing work, the faithful people of God will partake of that glory. It is the latter rain (testing perfecting messages like the vegan diet, dress reform, keep the 7th day Sabbath Holy from sundown Friday night to Sundown Saturday, worship God only and not the trinity of gods, come OUT of all 501c3 denominational government churches who CANNOT preach the truth today by law, etc) which revives and strengthens them to pass through the time of trouble. Their faces will shine with the glory (character=thoughts and feelings = truth assimilated into our daily choices that become habits) of that light which attends the third angel.
I saw that God will in a wonderful manner preserve His people through the time of trouble. As Jesus poured out His soul in agony in the garden, they will earnestly cry and agonize day and night for deliverance. The decree will go forth that they must disregard the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and honor the first day, or lose their lives; but they will not yield, and trample under their feet the Sabbath of the Lord, and honor an institution of papacy. Satan’s host and wicked men will surround them, and exult over them, because there will seem to be no way of escape for them. But in the midst of their revelry and triumph, there is heard peal upon peal of the loudest thunder. The heavens have gathered blackness, and are only illuminated by the blazing light and terrible glory from heaven, as God utters His voice from His holy habitation" Testimony Treasures, vol. 1, p. 131.1:

    Mar 29, 2015: Arizona Senator Sylvia Allen is already calling for a SUNDAY LAW - who probably does not realize the ramifications of what she is doing: ("many who unite in the movement do not themselves see whither the undercurrent is tending" 5T452 . )


    Arizona Senator Wants Mandatory Church Attendance

    Mar 29, 2015 - Arizonans should put on their Sunday best and head to a 501c3 non-profit tax-exempt church -- at least if Arizona Sen. Sylvia Allen has her way. Church attendance should be mandatory, the senator said during a debate about permitting concealed guns in public buildings. 


    Sen. Sylvia Allen: 
    "I believe what's happening to our country is that there's a moral erosion of the soul of America," she said. "It's the soul that is corrupt. How we get back to a moral rebirth I don't know. Since we are slowly eroding religion at every opportunity we have. Probably we should be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice ON SUNDAY to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth."

    "...when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions..." 5T451.1

    A great crisis awaits the people of God. A crisis awaits the world. The most momentous struggle of all the ages is just before us. Events which for more than forty years we have upon the authority of the prophetic word declared to be impending are now taking place before our eyes. Already the question of an amendment to the Constitution restricting liberty of conscience has been urged upon the legislators of the nation. The question of enforcing Sunday observance has become one of national interest and importance. We well know what the result of this movement will be. But are we ready for the issue? Have we faithfully discharged the duty which God has committed to us of giving the people warning of the danger before them?  {5T 711.3}   Read more

  3. MEAT DIET VS VEGAN DIET: = "We are without excuse if we do not cherish the light, and become intelligent in regard to these things, which it is our highest earthly interest to under­stand."—Counsels on Health, p. 40. 

    THE PLEDGE
          “I solemnly promise, before God, to abstain from tobacco, spirituous liquors, snuff, tea, coffee, flesh-meats, butter, spices, rich cake, mince pies, a large amount of salt, and animal fat of all kinds, baking powder, soda or saleratus in any form, and cheese, and from all exciting articles of food, and to abstain from eating between meals, and to do all I can to induce others to do likewise.”

    "Grains, fruits, nuts, and vegetables constitute the diet chosen for us by our Creator. These foods, prepared in as simple and natural a manner as possible,  are the most healthful and nourishing. They impart a strength, a power of endurance, and a vigor of intellect, that are not afforded by a more complex and stimulating diet. [The Ministry of Healing, p. 296.1 (1905)]

    "In grains, fruits, vegetables, and nuts are to be found ALL the food elements that we need." Counsels on Diet and Foods, p. 92.2

    For Superior Brainpower Eat: (Like Daniel and His three friends did!)

    The food which God gave Adam in his sinless state is the best for man’s use as he seeks to regain that sinless state!

    "Let the diet reform be progressive. Let the people be taught how to prepare food without the use of milk or butter. Tell them that the time will soon come (written in 1902) when there will be no safety in using eggs, milk, cream, or butter, because disease in animals is increasing in proportion to the increase of wickedness among men. The time is near when,because of the iniquity of the fallen race, the whole animal creation will groan under the diseases that curse our earth.

    God will give His people ability and tact to prepare wholesome food without these thingsLet our people discard all unwholesome recipesLet them learn how to live healthfully, teaching to others what they have learned. Let them impart this knowledge as they would Bible instruction. Let them teach the people to preserve the health and increase the strength by avoiding the large amount ofcooking that has filled the world with chronic invalids. By precept and example make it plain that the food which God gave Adam in his sinless state is the best for man’s use as he seeks to regain that sinless state." Testimonies for the Church Volume 7, p. 135.2 (1902)

    "You should be teaching your children. You should be instructing them how to shun the vices and corruptions of this age. Instead of this, many are studying how to get something good to eat. You place upon your tables butter, eggs, and meat, and your children partake of them. They are fed with the very things that will excite their animal passions, and then you come to meeting and ask God to bless and save your children. How high do your prayers go? You have a work to do first. When you have done all for your children which God has left for you to do, then you can with confidence claim the special help that God has promised to give you."—Testimonies for the Church 2:362, 1870

    "Every needless transgression of the laws which God has established in our being, is virtually a violation of the law of God, and is as great a sin in the sight of Heaven as to break the Ten Commandments. Ignorance up­on this important subject, is sin; the light is now beaming upon us, and we are without excuse if we do not cherish the light, and become intelligent in regard to these things, which it is our highest earthly interest to under­stand."—Counsels on Health, p. 40.

  4. DRESS REFORM: 

    Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God.
    Commenting on this subject under the American Costume that came about in EG White's day (a forerunner to the pant suits of the 70's and what women wear today:
    Some who believe the truth may think that it would be more healthful for the sisters to adopt the American costume, yet if that mode of dress would cripple our influence among unbelievers so that we could not so readily gain access to them, we should by no means adopt it, though we suffered much in consequence. But some are deceived in thinking there is so much benefit to be received from this costume. While it may prove a benefit to some, it is an injury to others.
    I saw that God's order has been reversed, and His special directions disregarded, by those who adopt the American costume. I was referred to Deuteronomy 22:5: "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God." God would not have His people adopt the so-called reform dress. It is immodest apparel, wholly unfitted for the modest, humble followers of Christ. {1T 421.2} 
    There is an increasing tendency to have women in their dress and appearance as near like the other sex as possible, and to fashion their dress very much like that of men, but God pronounces it abomination. "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety." 1 Timothy 2:9.
     {1T 421.3} 
    Those who feel called out to join the movement in favor of woman's rights and the so-called dress reform (the American Costume...pants for womenmight as well sever all connection with the third angel's message. The spirit which attends the one cannot be in harmony with the other. The Scriptures are plain upon the relations and rights of men and women. Spiritualists have, to quite an extent, adopted this singular mode of dress. Seventh-day Adventists, who believe in the restoration of the gifts, are often branded as spiritualists. Let them adopt this costume, and their influence is dead. The people would place them on a level with spiritualists and would refuse to listen to them.  {1T 421.4}

    A disposition in you to dress according to the fashion, and to wear lace and gold and artificials for display, will not recommend to others your religion or the truth that you profess.... Simple, plain, unpretending dress will be a recommendation to my youthful sisters. In no better way can you let your light shine to others than in your simplicity of dress and deportment. You may show to all that, in comparison with eternal things, you place a proper estimate upon the things of this life.

    Now is your golden opportunity to form pure and holy characters for heaven. You cannot afford to devote these precious moments to ... beautifying the external to the neglect of the inward adorning....

    God, who created everything lovely and beautiful that the eye rests upon, is a lover of the beautiful. He shows you how He estimates true beauty. The ornament of a meek and quiet spirit is in His sight of great price. Shall we not seek earnestly to gain that which God estimates as more valuable than costly dress or pearls or gold? The inward adorning, the grace of meekness, a spirit in harmony with the heavenly angels, will not lessen true dignity of character or make us less lovely here in this world.

    Religion, pure and undefiled, ennobles its possessor. You will ever find with the true Christian a marked cheerfulness, a holy, happy confidence in God, a submission to His providences, that is refreshing to the soul. By the Christian, God’s love and benevolence can be seen in every bounty he receives. The beauties in nature are a theme for contemplation. In studying the natural loveliness surrounding us, the mind is carried up through nature to the Author of all that is lovely. All the works of God are speaking to our senses, magnifying His power, exalting His wisdom. Every created thing has in it charms which interest the child of God and mold his taste to regard these precious evidences of God’s love above the work of human skill (Testimonies for the Church 3:375-377).


  5. Revelation 12:17. “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” The woman is a symbol of the church, and the remnant of the church represents the Christians of the last generation of men, living just prior to the second advent. The dragon makes war on these for keeping the commandments of God, Sabbath and all, and having the testimony of Jesus Christ, which, according to the inspired definition of chapter 19:10, “is the spirit of prophecy.” Here, then, are the causes of the dragon's warfare upon the remnant. They teach the observance of the Ten Commandments, and the revival of the gifts, and acknowledge the gift of prophecy among them. When the devil got one foot upon the fourth commandment, and the other upon the gifts planted in the Christian church by Jesus Christ, then his satanic majesty was filled with revengeful delight. But when the remnant, whom God designs to fit for translation to heaven without seeing death, “ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein,” then the dragon is wroth, and makes war on them. The true spirit of the dragonic host, which is already being somewhat developed, is vividly described in Isaiah 30:8-13, as being manifested just prior to the sudden destruction of those who hate the pure testimony, and love smooth and deceitful things" Spiritual Gifts, vol. 3, p. 26.2.



Sunday Sacredness:





"The fallen [501c3-non-profit/tax-exempt] denominational churches are Babylon. Babylon has been fostering poisonous doctrines, the wine of error. This wine of error is made up of false doctrines, such as the natural immortality of the soul, the eternal torment of the wicked, the denial of the preexistence of Christ prior to His birth in Bethlehem (TRINITY DOCTRINE TEACHES THIS - that Christ was not the firstborn of Heaven (first born of the Spirit) sent down to earth to be born of the flesh - second born of the flesh), and advocating and exalting the first day of the week above God’s holy, sanctified day" Ellen G. White: The Australian Years: 1891-1900 (vol. 4), p. 81.4.

“As the end approaches, the testimonies of God's servants will become more decided and more powerful.”—3SM 407 (1892).

Immortality of the Soul: Our soul is our "character" which is our thoughts and our feelings, which is expressed in our "words" and "actions" = our ATTITUDE. Our "words" that we speak to others determines our destiny. See James 3:2, 2 Peter 1:4 and claim Luke 21:15:

"The great original lie which he told to Eve in Eden, "Ye shall not surely die," was the first sermon ever preached on the immortality of the soul. That sermon was crowned with success, and terrible results followed. He has brought minds to receive that sermon as truth, and ministers preach it, sing it, and pray it." {1T 342.3}

When Jesus had opened before his disciples the fact that he must go to Jerusalem to suffer and die at the hands of the chief priests and scribes, Peter had presumptuously contradicted his Master, saying, “Be it far from thee, Lord; this shall not be unto thee.” He could not conceive it possible that the Son of God should be put to death. Satan suggested to his mind (Peter's mind) that if Jesus was the Son of God he could not die. (Ellen White, Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 3, page 231) 

"It is often asserted that this exalted one came to earth and inhabited a human body, which he left in the hour of its deathBut the Scriptures teach that this exalted one was the identical person that died on the cross; and in this consists the immense sacrifice made for man—the wondrous love of God and condescension of his only Son. John says, “The Word of life,” “that which was from the beginning,” “which was with the Father,” that exalted, pre-existent One “which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled.” 1 John 1:1, 2. (J. H. Waggoner, 1884, The Atonement In The Light Of Nature And Revelation, pages 152-154) 

"It is often asserted that this exalted one came to earth and inhabited a human body, which he left in the hour of its death. But the Scriptures teach that this exalted one was the identical person that died on the cross; and in this consists the immense sacrifice made for man - the wondrous love of God and condescension of his only Son." (J. H. Waggoner, 1884, The Atonement In The Light Of Nature And Revelation, pages 152-154)

Just like it's OUR "human (carnal) nature" that has to die, through the death of Christ's sacrifice for us. We claim as our very own, Christ's death/sacrifice for us. It's the atonement for our "carnal" nature. Our "CHARACTER" our thoughts and feelings are our WORDS and actions that create our habits which decides our eternal destiny - either eternal life or eternal death. It is character alone that God values. Our character is the only thing we get to take to Heaven with us.

"Pointing to the palms of His hands, pierced by the fury and prejudice of wicked men, He says of us, "I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands" [Isaiah 49:16]. The Father bows in recognition of the price paid for humanity, and the angels approach the cross of Calvary with reverence." -- Manuscript 21, 1895.

Satan suggested to his mind (Peter's mind) that if Jesus was the Son of God he could not die. (Ellen White, Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 3, page 231) 

I do not want "Satan" suggesting to our minds today - that Jesus as the Son of God could not die completely for us.

"he left in the hour of its deathThis is spiritualism - a soul winging it's way to Heaven or hanging around somewhere - in purgatory, for example. This is another prime example why believing in three gods trinity or tritheistic flavors or versions of God IS so wrong and fatal (upon understanding) to eternal life.

Psalm 77:13(KJV) 13 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?

[Our first parents] were to enjoy communion with God and with holy angels; but ... their loyalty must be tested....Obedience, perfect and perpetual, was the condition of eternal happiness. On this condition he [man] was to have access to the tree of life.—Patriarchs and Prophets, 48, 49.

In order to possess an endless existence, man must continue to partake of the tree of life. Deprived of this, his vitality would gradually diminish until life should become extinct.... He [Satan] hoped that they would eat of the tree of life.... But after man’s fall, holy angels were immediately commissioned to guard the tree of life.... None of the family of Adam were permitted to pass that barrier to partake of the life-giving fruit; hence there is not an immortal sinner.—Patriarchs and Prophets, 60You can read more about the tree of life here.


By the faith of Jesus we partake of this tree of life in the center of the garden by grabbing hold of the flaming double edged sword which guarded the East entrance into the Garden of Eden and “turned every way”.  The angel holds that sword at the East gate and guards the entrance to the City of God (Eden restored)- this represents the Bible promises (Hebrews 4:12) that we grab hold of by faith and claim to spiritually ENTER in through one of the 12 gates into the City of God.


Psalms 100:4 


Psalm 149:6
May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,


Isaiah 49:2
He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver.


Ephesians 5:26
to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,

Ephesians 6:17
Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit (WORD=Christ John 6:63), which is the word of God.


1 Thessalonians 2:13
And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.

1 Thessalonians 5:23
May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.


John 17:17 (KJV) 17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.


Hebrews 6:5
who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers (character=thoughts and feelings=Kingdom of God=City of God the image of Christ reflected by His people) of the coming age

1 Peter 1:23
For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.

Revelation 1:16
In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.


144,000: "God’s ministers are symbolized by the seven stars, which He who is the first and the last has under His special care and protection." Ellen White, Gospel Workers 1915, p. 13.3


 This City of God is the image of Christ, that we enter into SPIRITUALLY now at the farther end of the narrow path - we enter into the image of Christ or the Holy City aka City of God by claiming Bible verse promises per 2 Peter 1:4 and James 3:2 - we don't want to be hung by our tongues! We must learn the language of Heaven and speak His words and NOT our carnal nature words.








The word of the Lord, spoken through His servants, is received by many with questionings and fears. And many will defer their obedience to the warning and reproofs given, waiting till every shadow of uncertainty is removedfrom their minds. The unbelief that demands perfect knowledge will never yield to the evidence that God is pleased to giveHe requires of His people faith that rests upon the weight of evidence, not upon perfect knowledge. Those followers of Christ who accept the light that God sends them must obey the voice of God speaking to them when there are many other voices crying out against it. It requires discernment to distinguish the voice of God.

Those who will not act when the Lord calls upon them, but who wait for more certain evidence and more favorable opportunities, will walk in darkness, for the light will be withdrawn. The evidence given one day, if rejected, may never be repeated." Testimonies for the Church Volume 3, p. 258.2

Then the Lord manifests Himself to Elijah (AND TO JAMES WHITE), showing him that quiet trust and firm reliance upon God will ever find Him a present help in time of need. Those who stand in the front of the conflict, and who are reined up by the Spirit of God to do a special work for Him, will frequently feel a reaction when the pressure is removed, and despondency may sometimes press them hard. To wait patiently and trust in God when everything looks dark is the lesson that my husband must learn more fully. God will not fail him in his integrity.


Modern SDA church now says

  • "God is glad for us to go to church BOTH days [Saturday and Sunday]. He wants us to worship Him BOTH days." (ST, 3/1990, p. 22-23).  
  • And the trinity of gods doctrine “is not found expressly stated in the scriptures.” (AR 8/20/93 P-8) 
  • “Only by faith can we accept the existence of the Trinity." AR, Vol. 158, No. 31, p. 4. 

"And to take the place of the word of God he [Satan] holds our spiritual manifestations. Here is a channel wholly under his control; by this means he can make the world believe what he will." Great Controversy, p. 557

“In this age of the world there is no safety in departing from a plain "Thus saith the Lord," however wise and correct the human assumption may appear. Tradition in names and books is nothing. God's word is everything. The wisdom of the wisest man that lives is foolishness if it swerves one jot or tittle from the word of the living God. God lives, God reigns, and He declares, "Them that honor me I will honor." Of those who place their sophistry above a plain "Thus saith the Lord," God says, "I will make their wisdom foolishness." {BTS, May 1, 1913 par. 3}

The great movement that Wycliffe inaugurated, which was to liberate the conscience and the intellect, and set free the nations so long bound to the triumphal car of Rome, had its spring in the Bible. Here was the source of that stream of blessing, which, like the water of life, has flowed down the ages since the fourteenth century. Wycliffe accepted the Holy Scriptures with implicit faith as the inspired revelation of God's will, a sufficient rule of faith and practice. He had been educated to regard the Church of Rome as the divine, infallible authority, and to accept with unquestioning reverence the established teachings and customs of a thousand years; but he turned away from all these to listen to God's holy word. This was the authority which he urged the people to acknowledge. Instead of the church speaking through the pope, he declared the only true authority to be the voice of God speaking through His word. And he taught not only that the Bible is a perfect revelation of God's will, but that the Holy Spirit is its only interpreter, and that every man is, by the study of its teachings, to learn his duty for himself. Thus he turned the minds of men from the pope and the Church of Rome to the word of God. Great Controversy, p. 93

So the "man" who stands at the head of "ANOTHER RELIGIOUS BODY" would be the 666. 

Although the SDA denomination is Protestant, it has ironically developed a Roman Catholic style hierarchical system.

But not only did the leadership admit that the SDA church structure is definitely hierarchical, but they also finally admitted that it resembles Roman Catholicism!

"ANOTHER" Religious Body" 

     Douglas Devnich, president of the SDA Canadian Union, stated:
     "The Seventh-day Adventist Church follows a model of organizational order in the church which is modified from the orders of Roman Catholicism, but it retains the same notions of clerical order which separates the members of the Church into two classes--clergy and laity." Messenger, December, 1993, p 2.

 Sister Ellen White warned that the General Conference leadership were "pursuing a similar course to that of the Roman Catholics" (Manuscript Releases, vol 9, p 179--Letter 53, 1894); that they were trying to make the General Conference "like Rome, the great head of the work" (Manuscript Release #133, p 27--Letter 71, April 8, 1894); and that they were already "following in the track of Romanism" (Testimonies to Ministers, p 362).
     Not only was Sister White sounding the warning, but so did other faithful brethren--such as Percy T. Magan.  During the General Conference Session of 1903, before the new constitution was officially adopted, brother Magan obtained the floor and warned:
     "The proposed new constitution reverses the reformatory steps that were taken...in the constitution of 1901....but I want to say to you that any man who has ever read Neander's History of the Christian Church, Mosheim's, or any other of the great church historians...can come to no other conclusion but that the principles which are to be brought in through this proposed constitution, and in the way in which they are brought in, are the same principles, and introduced in precisely the same way, as they were hundreds of years ago when the papacy was made." 1903 General Conference Bulletin, p 150.

     For those who find this a little hard to believe, Sister White clearly wrote that "Our religion would be changed....A new organization would be established" (Selected Messages, book 1, p 204-05).  She also issued a warning to every SDA about the great changes that would take place in the SDA church.
     "I am charged to tell our people, that do not realize, that the devil has device after device, and he carries them out in ways that they do not expect.  Satan's agencies will invent ways to make sinners out of saints.
     "I tell you now, that when I am laid to rest, great changes will take place.
     "I do not know when I shall be taken; and I desire to warn all against the devices of the devil.
     "I want the people to know that I warned them fully before my death." Manuscript 1, February 24, 1915.

The Shocking "ANOTHER" Religious Body" Fulfillment:

And in the Adventist Review of March 5, 1981, on page 3, Neal C. Wilson, General Conference President of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, states: 

"...there is 
ANOTHER universal and TRULY CATHOLIC ORGANIZATION, the SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH."

"The image to the beast represents ANOTHER religious body clothed with similar powers."

"Let not the days pass by and precious opportunities be lost of seeking the Lord with all the heart and mind and soul. If we accept not the truth in the love of it, we may be among the number who will see the miracles wrought by Satan in these last days, and believe them.—Letter 136, April 27, 1906, to Brethren Butler, Daniells, and Irwin. (Ellen White, 1906, This Day with God, page 126)

“I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.” With God outward show weighs nothing. The outward forms of religion, without the love of God in the soul, are utterly worthless. S.D.A. Bible Commentary Vol. 7, Page 958

"At the local conference level the Seventh-day Adventist church has a representative form of government, above that level the polity of the Seventh-day Adventist is hierarchical: authority flows downward and members in local congregations have virtually no voice.... the Seventh-day Adventist church is a closed, self-operating, and self-perpetuating system, similar to the Roman Catholic church, in which those in authority are not responsible to lower echelons. Above the local conference level, those in authority are not elected by, representative of, or administratively accountable to, local congregations or the membership at large." (Raymond F. Cottrell, former Associate Editor of the Adventist Review and the Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary, in Spectrum (Journal of Association of Adventist Forums), vol 14, #4, March, 1984, p 42).

"...There is another universal and truly catholic organization, the Seventh-day Adventist Church." (Neal C. Wilson, General Conference President of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, in Adventist Review, March 5, 1981, p 3).

"I saw that the two-horned beast had a dragon's mouth, and that his power was in his head, and that the decree would go out of his mouth. Then I saw the Mother of Harlots; that the mother (Papacy) was not the daughters, but separate and distinct from them. She (the Papacy) has had her day, and it is past, and her daughters, the Protestant sects, were the next to come on the stage and act out the same mind that the mother (Papacy) had when she persecuted the saints. I saw that as the mother has been declining in power the daughters had been growing and soon they will exercise the power once exercised by the mother." E.G. White, Spalding-Meagan Collection, "Copy of Three Visitors."

"I saw that as the mother has been declining in power the daughters had been growing and soon they will exercise the power once exercised by the mother." Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 1.4

Obviously the Enemy wants us to focus in one direction while he attacks from another. While we trace the Papacy's every move, the real danger lurks behind us, waiting to snag our unwary souls into his honed craws.

ANOTHER religious body:

Biblically this "man" who stands at the head of "another" "religious body" could not be the Pope! Yes, the Bible does state that the USA born "image to the beast" will pay homage to the Leopard-like Beast, but, we have already seen that the Leopard-like Beast is not the Papacy alone, but in fact, represents the Western world model or system. Again, the Bible did not say that the USA will tell the world to worship the "head" but the "beast"-the system!

"When the churches of our land, uniting upon such points of faith as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and sustain their institutions, then will protestant America have formed an image of the Roman hierarchy." Spirit of Prophecy, vol 4, p 278.


"This earth has almost reached the place where God will permit the destroyer to work his will upon it. The substitution of the laws of men for the law of God, the exaltation, by merely human authority, of Sunday in place of the Bible Sabbath, is the last act in the drama. When this substitution becomes universalGod will reveal Himself. He will arise in His majesty to shake terribly the earth. He will come out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the world for their iniquity, and the earth shall disclose her blood and shall no more cover her slain." Testimonies for the Church Volume 7, p. 141.1

We are galloping toward a one-world melding of religions, and the ramifications are staggering. Pope Francis has now sent a video message to Word of Faith father Kenneth Copeland, urging a reconciliation between Catholics and Charismatics.

"The Catholic and Charismatic Renewal is the hope of the Church," exclaims Anglican Episcopal Bishop Tony Palmer, before a group of cheering followers at the Kenneth Copeland Ministries. Palmer said those words are from the Vatican. Before playing the video message from Pope Francis to Kenneth Copeland, Palmer told the crowd, "When my wife saw that she could be Catholic, and Charismatic, and Evangelical, and Pentecostal, and it was absolutely accepted in the Catholic Church, she said that she would like to reconnect her roots with the Catholic culture. So she did."

The crowd cheered, as he continued, "Brothers and sisters, Luther's protest is over. Is yours?"

Even Kenneth Copeland finds this development incredible: Said Copeland, "Heaven is thrilled over this...You know what is so thrilling to me? When we went into the ministry 47 years ago, this was impossible."....

 "The Lord has shown me clearly that the image of the beast will be formed before probation closes; for it is to be the great test for the people of God, by which their eternal destiny will be decided....Rev 13:11-17....This is the test that the people of God must have before they are sealed." SDA Bible Commentary, vol 7, p 976 col 1.


"...the harvest is the end of probationary time.  {COL 71.3} 

"Probation is ended a short time before the appearing of the Lord in the clouds of heaven. Christ in the Revelation, looking forward to that time, declares: “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still; and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still; and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still; and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” [Revelation 22:11, 12.] The Great Controversy 1888, p. 491.1


Let not the days pass by and precious opportunities be lost of seeking the Lord with all the heart and mind and soul. If we accept not the truth in the love of it, we may be among the number who will see the miracles wrought by Satan in these last days, and believe them.—Letter 136, April 27, 1906, to Brethren Butler, Daniells, and Irwin. (Ellen White, 1906, This Day with God, page 126)

 "Apostasy has come in to our ranks as it came in to Heaven, and all who unite with Satan in this kind of work will act on the same principles Satan has worked." Manuscript Releases, vol 7, p 178 (Letter 156, 1897).

     "Never before have I carried so sad a heart as since I have seen the apostasy of men and women who have had great light (1844-1894 SDA Doctrines)...but I have no power to change the seductive working of the enemy." Manuscript Releases, vol 7, p 193 (Letter 266, August 5, 1906).



The truth is that the Papacy will never again rule like she did in the Middle Ages. That's right! Never! Her time for dominance is over. Yes, she will be influential. Yes she will probably gloat over the homage paid her through a Sunday law, however, she will never again sit atop the world. We know. About now you're probably saying that old ideas die hard. Well, that may be true, but don't keep them alive.

"All who will not bow to the decree of the national councils and obey the national laws to exalt the Sabbath instituted by the man of sin, to the disregard to god's holy day, will feel, not the oppressive power of popery alone, but of the Protestant world, the Image of the Beast." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Book Two, p. 380.

Still skeptical? Consider the following inspired references: "This power is the last that treads down the true church of God and as the true church is still trodden down, and cast out by all Christendom, it follows that the last oppressive power has not 'come to his end;' and Michael has not stood up. This last power (SDA corp?) that treads down the saints is brought to view in Rev. 13:11 -18. His number is 666. . .James White, A Word to the Little Flock, pp. 8,9.

In our study we have come to learn that a church can fall and become fallen Babylon by meeting one of the three following conditions:“In amazement they hear the testimony that Babylon is the church, fallen because of her errors and sins, because of her rejection of the truth sent to her from heaven.” GC 606.

We firmly believe that the Seventh-day Adventist Church today has joined fallen Babylon, and is no longer corporately part of God’s remnant. We believe that there is overwhelming evidence in support of this conclusion. In such a life and death matter, we believe that God is providing ample evidence, to enable His true and faithful people to see the situation of the Church as He sees it, and to respond to His call by coming out of her.

The process, by which we were led to this inescapable conclusion about the Church’s status, “required much study and anxious care to search it out link after link.” 1T 79. We were greatly blessed in our study, by adhering to the weight of evidence principle, recommended by God’s servant, Ellen G. White: Those who desire to doubt will have plenty of room. God does not propose to remove all occasion for unbelief. He gives evidence, which must be carefully investigated with a humble mind and a teachable spirit, and all should decide from the weight of evidence.” 3T 255.

And since our study involved diligent search of the Spirit of Prophecy writings, we found the following inspired counsel to be most useful to remember: “Regarding the testimonies, nothing is ignored; nothing is cast aside; but time and place must be considered.1SM 57.

The underlying premise of our study is the fact that God did not immune the Seventh-day Adventist Church from falling.“In this day He has instituted no new plan to preserve the purity of His people.” 4T 165. In fact, He never immunizes any person or church from falling:“The Lord Jesus will always have a chosen people to serve Him. When the Jewish people rejected Christ, the Prince of life, He took from them the kingdom of God and gave it unto the Gentiles. God will continue to work on this principle with every branch of His workWhen a church proves unfaithful to the word of the Lord, whatever their position may be, however high and sacred their calling, the Lord can no longer work with themOthers are then chosen to bear important responsibilities.” 14Ms 102, UL 131.

How can there be such confident assurances today, as we clearly hear the denominational leaders trumpet from the pulpits of the land, “She is the ship of God, perhaps listing badly, yet we are assured that she is sailing steadfastly into the heavenly port…. STAY WITH THE SHIP!” “She is the ‘apple of God’s eye,’ ‘the remnant church.’ DON’T GIVE UP, NOW!” “Defective and feeble though she be, -- indeed, she is not perfect, -- but God will purify His church. THE APOSTATES WILL LEAVE! DON’T BE FOUND OUTSIDE WITH THEM.” “The church will appear as about to fall, BUT SHE WILL NOT FALL!Those who call the infallible Ladociean SDA corporate church Babylon are in apostasy - not us!” 

Does this sound familiar?!!!  

The messenger of the Lord warned us of this very thing happening a very long time ago: 

"
These men were constantly saying, “God is with us. We stand in the light. We have the truth.” I inquired who these men were, and was told that they were ministers and leading men who had rejected the light themselves, and were unwilling that others should receive it." EARLY WRITINGS, PAGE 241

"They (the 144,000 remnant) resisted the efforts which were made to fasten the cords tighter and refused to heed the repeated assertions: “God is with us.” “We have the truth with us.” Early Writings, p. 240.2

The REMNANT that cause the shaking is the Third Angel, or the 144,000. She is the first-fruits  firstborn Zion of Hebrews 12:22-23, and Rev. 14:1-4.

"I then saw the THIRD ANGEL. Said my accompanying angel, 'Fearful is his work. Awful is his mission. He is the angel that is to select the wheat from the tares, and seal, or bind, the wheat for the heavenly garner." E.G. White, Early Writings, 118.

"The angel represented in prophecy as delivering this message, symbolizes a class of faithful men, who obedient to the promptings of God's Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message WAS NOT to be committed to the religious leaders of the people." E.. White, The Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 4, 199, 200.

"The third angel's message will not be comprehended, the light which will lighten the earth with its glory will be called a false light, by those who refuse to walk in its advancing glory." E.G. White, Review and Herald, 5-27-1890, p. 321.

This Third Angel is the bride who awakens the ten virgins. She is the firstborn, or firstfruits, called out directly by God. Then she and God awaken the ten-virgin guests, Christ's Object Lessons, 405-406.

"Characteristics of True Reformers.--Here [Isa. 8:11-14] are given the characteristics of those who shall be reformers, who will bear the banner of the third angel's message, these who avow themselves God's commandment-keeping people, and who honor God, and are earnestly engaged, in the sight of all the universe, in building up the old waste places. Who is it that calls them, The repairer of the breach, The restorers of paths to dwell in? It is God. Their names are registered [written--Heb. 12:22, 23] in heaven as reformers, restorers, as raising the foundations of many generations." E. G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 4, 1151.


12 And he (ANOTHER religious body) exerciseth all the power of the first beast (Papacy) before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast (Papacy=baptized paganism), whose deadly wound was healed.

"The General Conference, then is the Seventh-day Adventist church....the embodiment of the remnant church as a Christian denomination, in a unified worldwide organization, to which all baptized Seventh-day Adventists owe spiritual allegiance." EEOC vs PPPA, Civil Case #74-2025 CBR, p 17.

We can clearly see that the president of the General Conference is indeed another pope--the pope over all the members of the Seventh-day Adventist church!

"The people were wholly deceived. They were taught that the popes and priests were Christ's representatives, when in fact they were the representatives of Satan, and those who bowed to them worshipped Satan." Early Writings, p 214.

And this popery will continue on with whomever becomes the General Conference president. This fact is clearly revealed by South Pacific Division president Walter Scragg in the following 1990 article:

"Many church members would say that the power in the Seventh-day Adventist Church resides with the president...He has authority to decide and act....he does have considerable power....

"He's the spiritual leader of the community of faith....He's shepherd, guardian, guide and captain." Record, June 23, 1990, p 4.

13 And he (ANOTHER religious body=SDA Corp church?) doeth great wonders, so that he (ANOTHER religious body) maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And (ANOTHER religious body clothed with similar hierarchical/doctrines/powers as Papacy) deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he (ANOTHER religious body)  had power to do in the sight of the beast (Papacy); saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast (copy of the Papacies baptized paganism doctrines), which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

"Let not the days pass by and precious opportunities be lost of seeking the Lord with all the heart and mind and soul. If we accept not the truth in the love of it, we may be among the number who will see the miracles wrought by Satan in these last days, and believe them.—Letter 136, April 27, 1906, to Brethren Butler, Daniells, and Irwin. (Ellen White, 1906, This Day with God, page 126)

1. A great Tribulation occurs such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, nor ever shall be! It is to be shortened for the elect’s sake. This is a distinct period of time. See verses 21 & 22.

2. Then, or at that time of great tribulation, false Christs and false prophets will arise showing great signs and wonders, to deceive if it were possible the very elect. See verses 23 & 24.

 The false christs and false prophets are directing their deceptions toward the “very elect”, during the end time. Jesus warns us, that this time of tribulation is so unlike any other period of time that the world has ever seen, that except that the days shall be shortened, no flesh will be saved! And so it is purposely shortened for the elect’s sake.

Jesus confirms that His followers are the ones who will be confronted by this Great Tribulation, and who will be exposed to the deceptions of the false christs by the way He addresses them in verse 26.

 Matthew 24:26: - “Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth: behold, He is in the secret chambers; believe it not.”

 “When the religion of Christ is most held in contempt, when His law is most despised, then should our zeal be the warmest and our courage and firmness the most unflinching. To stand in defense of truth and righteousness when the majority forsake us, to fight the battles of the Lord when champions are few--this will be our testAt this time we must gather warmth from the coldness of others,courage from their cowardice, and loyalty from their treason.”--5T 136 (1882).  {LDE 180.4}

"The people of God, symbolized by a holy woman (zion/144,000/Bride of Christ) and her children (5 wise virgins/guests of the Bride and Groom's wedding supper), were represented as greatly in the minority. In the last days only a remnant still existed. Of these John speaks as they 'which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." E. G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 7, 972.

The TRUE "church" are those who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus (Spirit of Prophecy Rev 19:10 "And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." ).

Satan's Last Day Deceptions

Under the Garb of Christianity

We are approaching the end of this earth's history, and Satan is working as never before. He is striving to act as director of the Christian world. With an intensity that is marvellous he is working with his lying wonders. Satan is represented as walking about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. He desires to embrace the whole world in his confederacy. Hiding his deformity under the garb of Christianity, he assumes the attributes of a Christian, and claims to be Christ Himself.--8MR 346 (1901).

The Word of God declares that when it suits the enemy's purpose, he will through his agencies manifest so great a power under a pretence of Christianity that, "if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect" [Matt. 24:24].--Ms 125, 1901.

As the spirits will profess faith in the Bible and manifest respect for the institutions of the church,

156

their work will be accepted as a manifestation of divine power.--GC 588 (1911).  

The strongest bulwark of vice in our world is not the iniquitous life of the abandoned sinner or the degraded outcast; it is that life which otherwise appears virtuous, honourable, and noble, but in which one sin is fostered, one vice indulged. . . . Genius, talent, sympathy, even generous and kindly deeds, may thus become decoys of Satan to entice souls over the precipice of ruin.--Ed 150 (1903).

Even in the Adventist Church

We have far more to fear from within than from without. The hindrances to strength and success are far greater from the church itself than from the world. Unbelievers have a right to expect that those who profess to be keeping the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus, will do more than any other class to promote and honour, by their consistent lives, by their godly example and their active influence, the cause which they represent. But how often have the professed advocates of the truth proved the greatest obstacle to its advancement! The unbelief indulged, the doubts expressed, the darkness cherished, encourage the presence of evil angels, and open the way for the accomplishment of Satan's devices.--1SM 122 (1887).

Lying Spirits Contradict the Scriptures

The saints must get a thorough understanding of present truth, which they will be obliged to maintain

157

from the Scriptures. They must understand the state of the dead, for the spirits of devils will yet appear to them, professing to be beloved friends and relatives, who will declare to them that the Sabbath has been changed, also other unscriptural doctrines.--EW 87 (1854).

The apostles, as personated by these lying spirits, are made to contradict what they wrote at the dictation of the Holy Spirit when on earth. They deny the divine origin of the Bible.--GC 557 (1911).  

Through the two great errors, the immortality of the soul and Sunday sacredness, Satan will bring the people under his deceptions. While the former lays the foundation of spiritualism, the latter creates a bond of sympathy with Rome.--GC 588 (1911).

Persons will arise pretending to be Christ Himself, and claiming the title and worship which belong to the world's Redeemer. They will perform wonderful miracles of healing, and will profess to have revelations from heaven contradicting the testimony of the Scriptures. . . .

But the people of God will not be misled. The teachings of this false christ are not in accordance with the Scriptures. His blessing is pronounced upon the worshipers of the beast and his image, the very class upon whom the Bible declares that God's unmingled wrath shall be poured out.--GC 624, 625 (1911).

158

False Revivals

I saw that God has honest children among the nominal Adventists and the fallen churches, and before the plagues shall be poured out, ministers and people will be called out from these churches and will gladly receive the truth. Satan knows this; and before the loud cry of the third angel is given, he raises an excitement in these religious bodies, that those who have rejected the truth may think that God is with them.--EW 261 (1858).

Before the final visitation of God's judgements upon the earth there will be among the people of the Lord such a revival of primitive godliness as has not been witnessed since apostolic times. . . . The enemy of souls desires to hinder this work, and before the time for such a movement shall come, he will endeavour to prevent it by introducing a counterfeit. In those churches which he can bring under his deceptive power, he will make it appear that God's special blessing is poured out; there will be manifest what is thought to be great religious interest. . . .

There is an emotional excitement, a mingling of the true with the false, that is well adapted to mislead. Yet none need be deceived. In the light of God's Word it is not difficult to determine the nature of these movements. Wherever men neglect the testimony of the Bible, turning away from those plain, soul-testing truths which require self-denial and renunciation of the world, there we may be sure that God's blessing is not bestowed.--GC 464 (1911).

159

Music Is Made a Snare

The things you have described as taking place in Indiana,[1. THESE COMMENTS WERE MADE IN CONNECTION WITH THE "HOLY FLESH" MOVEMENT AT THE INDIANA CAMP MEETING OF 1890. FOR FURTHER DETAILS, SEE SELECTED MESSAGES, BOOK 2, PP. 31-39.] the Lord has shown me would take place just before the close of probation. Every uncouth thing will be demonstrated. There will be shouting, with drums, music, and dancing. The senses of rational beings will become so confused that they cannot be trusted to make right decisions. . . .

A bedlam of noise shocks the senses and perverts that which if conducted aright might be a blessing. The powers of satanic agencies blend with the din and noise to have a carnival, and this is termed the Holy Spirit's working. . . . Those things which have been in the past will be in the future. Satan will make music a snare by the way in which it is conducted.--2SM 36, 38 (1900).

Let us give no place to strange exercisings, which really take the mind away from the deep movings of the Holy Spirit. God's work is ever characterised by calmness and dignity.--2SM 42 (1908).  

False Speaking in Tongues

Fanaticism, false excitement, false talking in tongues, and noisy exercises have been considered gifts which God has placed in the church. Some have been deceived here. The fruits of all this have not been good. "Ye shall know them by their fruits." Fanaticism

160

and noise have been considered special evidences of faith. Some are not satisfied with a meeting unless they have a powerful and happy time. They work for this and get up an excitement of feeling. But the influence of such meetings is not beneficial. When the happy flight of feeling is gone they sink lower than before the meeting because their happiness did not come from the right source.

The most profitable meetings for spiritual advancement are those which are characterised with solemnity and deep searching of heart, each seeking to know himself and, earnestly and in deep humility, seeking to learn of Christ.--1T 412 (1864).

Evil Angels Appear as Human Beings

Satan will use every opportunity to seduce men from their allegiance to God. He and the angels who fell with him will appear on the earth as men, seeking to deceive. God's angels also will appear as men, and will use every means in their power to defeat the purposes of the enemy.--8MR 399 (1903).

Evil angels in the form of men will talk with those who know the truth. They will misinterpret and misconstrue the statements of the messengers of God. . . .

Have Seventh-day Adventists forgotten the warning given in the sixth chapter of Ephesians? We are engaged in a warfare against the hosts of darkness. Unless we follow our Leader closely, Satan will obtain the victory over us.--3SM 411 (1903).

161

Evil angels in the form of believers will work in our ranks to bring in a strong spirit of unbelief. Let not even this discourage you, but bring a true heart to the help of the Lord against the powers of satanic agencies. These powers of evil will assemble in our meetings, not to receive a blessing, but to counterwork the influences of the Spirit of God.--2MCP 504, 505 (1909).

Personation of the Dead

It is not difficult for the evil angels to represent both saints and sinners who have died, and make these representations visible to human eyes. These manifestations will be more frequent, and developments of a more startling character will appear as we near the close of time.--Ev 604 (1875).

It is Satan's most successful and fascinating delusion--one calculated to take hold of the sympathies of those who have laid their loved ones in the grave. Evil angels come in the form of those loved ones and relate incidents connected with their lives, and perform acts which they performed while living. In this way they lead persons to believe that their dead friends are angels, hovering over them and communicating with them. These evil angels, who assume to be the deceased friends, are regarded with a certain idolatry, and with many their word has greater weight than the Word of God.--ST Aug. 26, 1889.

He [Satan] has power to bring before men the appearance of their departed friends. The counterfeit

162

is perfect; the familiar look, the words, the tone, are reproduced with marvellous distinctness. . . . Many will be confronted by the spirits of devils personating beloved relatives or friends and declaring the most dangerous heresies. These visitants will appeal to our tenderest sympathies and will work miracles to sustain their pretensions.--GC 552, 560 (1911).

Satan Personates Christ

The enemy is preparing to deceive the whole world by his miracle-working power. He will assume to personate the angels of light, to personate Jesus Christ.--2SM 96 (1894).

If men are so easily misled now, how will they stand when Satan shall personate Christ, and work miracles? Who will be unmoved by his misrepresentations then--professing to be Christ when it is only Satan assuming the person of Christ, and apparently working the works of Christ?--2SM 394 (1897).

Satan will take the field and personate Christ. He will misrepresent, misapply, and pervert everything he possibly can.--TM 411 (1898).

A power from beneath is working to bring about the last great scenes in the drama--Satan coming as Christ, and working with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in those who are binding themselves together in secret societies.--8T 28 (1904).

163

Satan Resembles Christ in Every Particular

There is a limit beyond which Satan cannot go, and here he calls deception to his aid and counterfeits the work which he has not power actually to perform. In the last days he will appear in such a manner as to make men believe him to be Christ come the second time into the world. He will indeed transform himself into an angel of light. But while he will bear the appearance of Christ in every particular, so far as mere appearance goes, it will deceive none but those who, like Pharaoh, are seeking to resist the truth.--5T 698 (1889).

As the crowning act in the great drama of deception, Satan himself will personate Christ. The church has long professed to look to the Saviour's advent as the consummation of her hopes. Now the great deceiver will make it appear that Christ has come. In different parts of the earth, Satan will manifest himself among men as a majestic being of dazzling brightness, resembling the description of the Son of God given by John in the Revelation. (Rev. 1:13-15). The glory that surrounds him is unsurpassed by anything that mortal eyes have yet beheld. The shout of triumph rings out upon the air: "Christ has come! Christ has come!"  

The people prostrate themselves in adoration before him, while he lifts up his hands and pronounces a blessing upon them, as Christ blessed His disciples when He was upon the earth. His voice is soft and subdued, yet full of melody. In gentle, compassionate tones he presents some of the same gracious, heavenly

164

truths which the Saviour uttered; he heals the diseases of the people, and then, in his assumed character of Christ, he claims to have changed the Sabbath to Sunday, and commands all to hallow the day which he has blessed.--GC 624 (1911).

Satan Pretends to Answer the Saints' Prayers

Satan sees that he is about to lose his case. He cannot sweep in the whole world. He makes one last desperate effort to overcome the faithful by deception. He does this in personating Christ. He clothes himself with the garments of royalty which have been accurately described in the vision of John. He has power to do this. He will appear to his deluded followers, the Christian world who received not the love of the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness (transgression of the law), as Christ coming the second time.

He proclaims himself Christ, and he is believed to be Christ, a beautiful, majestic being clothed with majesty and, with soft voice and pleasant words, with glory unsurpassed by anything their mortal eyes had yet beheld. Then his deceived, deluded followers set up a shout of victory, "Christ has come the second time! Christ has come! He has lifted up His hands just as He did when He was upon the earth, and blessed us.". . .  

The saints look on with amazement. Will they also be deceived? Will they worship Satan? Angels of God are about them. A clear, firm, musical voice is heard, "Look up."  

There was one object before the praying ones--the final and eternal salvation of their souls. This object

165

was before them constantly--that immortal life was promised to those who endure unto the end. Oh, how earnest and fervent had been their desires. The judgement and eternity were in view. Their eyes by faith were fixed on the blazing throne, before which the white-robed ones were to stand. This restrained them from the indulgence of sin. . . .

One effort more, and then Satan's last device is employed. He hears the unceasing cry for Christ to come, for Christ to deliver them. This last strategy is to personate Christ, and make them think their prayers are answered.--Ms 16, 1884.

How the Counterfeit Differs From the Genuine

Satan is not permitted to counterfeit the manner of Christ's advent.--GC 625 (1911).

Satan . . . will come personating Jesus Christ, working mighty miracles; and men will fall down and worship him as Jesus Christ. We shall be commanded to worship this being, whom the world will glorify as Christ. What shall we do? Tell them that Christ has warned us against just such a foe, who is man's worst enemy, yet who claims to be God, and that when Christ shall make His appearance it will be with power and great glory, accompanied by ten thousand times ten thousand angels and thousands of thousands, and that when He shall come we shall know His voice.--6BC 1106 (1888).

166

Satan is striving to gain every advantage. . . .Disguised as an angel of light, he will walk the earth as a wonder-worker. In beautiful language he will present lofty sentiments; good words will be spoken by him and good deeds performed. Christ will be personified. But on one point there will be a marked distinction--Satan will turn the people from the law of God. Notwithstanding this, so well will he counterfeit righteousness that, if it were possible, he would deceive the very elect. Crowned heads, presidents, rulers in high places, will bow to his false theories.--FE 471, 472 (1897). 

Miracles Will Be Performed

The sick will be healed before us. Miracles will be performed in our sight. Are we prepared for the trial which awaits us when the lying wonders of Satan shall be more fully exhibited?--1T 302 (1862).

Men under the influence of evil spirits will work miracles. They will make people sick by casting their spell upon them, and will then remove the spell, leading others to say that those who were sick have been miraculously healed. This Satan has done again and again.--2SM 53 (1903).

Wonderful scenes, with which Satan will be closely connected, will soon take place. God's Word declares that Satan will work miracles. He will make people sick, and then will suddenly remove from them his satanic power. They will then be regarded as healed.

167

These works of apparent healing will bring Seventh-day Adventists to the test.--2SM 53 (1904).

Satan can, through a species of deceptions, perform wonders that will appear to be genuine miracles. It was this he hoped to make a test question with the Israelites at the time of their deliverance from Egypt.--2SM 52 (1907). 

Fire From Heaven

We must not trust the claims of men. They may, as Christ represents, profess to work miracles in healing the sick. Is this marvellous, when just behind them stands the great deceiver, the miracle worker who will yet bring down fire from heaven in the sight of men?--2SM 49 (1887).

It is the lying wonders of the devil that will take the world captive, and he will cause fire to come down from heaven in the sight of men. He is to work miracles, and this wonderful, miracle-working power is to sweep in the whole world.--2SM 51 (1890).

Satan will come in to deceive if possible the very elect. He claims to be Christ, and he is coming in, pretending to be the great medical missionary. He will cause fire to come down from heaven in the sight of men to prove that he is God.--MM 87, 88 (1903).

It is stated in the Word that the enemy will work through his agents who have departed from the faith,

168

and they will seemingly work miracles, even to the bringing down of fire out of heaven in the sight of men.--2SM 54 (1907).

"He doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do" (Rev. 13:13, 14). No mere impostures are here foretold. Men are deceived by the miracles which Satan's agents have power to do, not which they pretend to do.--GC 553 (1911).

Satan Will Be Deified

In this age antichrist will appear as the true Christ, and then the law of God will be fully made void in the nations of our world. Rebellion against God's holy law will be fully ripe. But the true leader of all this rebellion is Satan clothed as an angel of light. Men will be deceived and will exalt him to the place of God, and deify him. But Omnipotence will interpose, and to the apostate churches that unite in the exaltation of Satan, the sentence will go forth, "Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and  mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her" [Rev. 18:8].--TM 62 (1893).

As the second appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ draws near, satanic agencies are moved from beneath. Satan will not only appear as a human being, but he will personate Jesus Christ, and the world that

169

has rejected the truth will receive him as the Lord of lords and King of kings.--5BC 1105, 1106 (1900).

Miracles Prove Nothing

Go to God for yourselves, pray for divine enlightenment, that you may know that you do know what is truth, that when the wonderful miracle-working power shall be displayed, and the enemy shall come as an angel of light, you may distinguish between the genuine work of God and the imitative work of the powers of darkness.--3SM 389 (1888).

The way in which Christ worked was to preach the Word, and to relieve suffering by miraculous works of healing. But I am instructed that we cannot now work in this way,[2. MIRACLES WILL ACCOMPANY THE MINISTRY OF GOD'S PEOPLE UNDER THE LOUD CRY (SEE CHAPTER 14), BUT THEY WILL NOT HAVE THE SIGNIFICANCE THEY DID IN CHRIST'S DAY. THE PERFORMING OF MIRACLES WILL NO LONGER BE A PROOF OF DIVINE ENDORSEMENT.] for Satan will exercise his power by working miracles. God's servants today could not work by means of miracles, because spurious works of healing, claiming to be divine, will be wrought.--2SM 54 (1904).

God's people will not find their safety in working miracles, for Satan will counterfeit the miracles that will be wrought.--9T 16 (1909).

Miracles Cannot Supersede the Bible

If those through whom cures are performed are disposed, on account of these manifestations, to excuse

170

their neglect of the law of God and continue in disobedience, though they have power to any and every extent, it does not follow that they have the great power of God. On the contrary, it is the miracle-working power of the great deceiver.--2SM 50, 51 (1885).

The Bible will never be superseded by miraculous manifestations. The truth must be studied, it must be searched for as hidden treasure. Wonderful illuminations will not be given aside from the Word or to take the place of it. Cling to the Word, receive the engrafted Word which will make men wise unto salvation.--2SM 48 (1894).

The last great delusion is soon to open before us. Antichrist is to perform his marvellous works in our sight. So closely will the counterfeit resemble the true that it will be impossible to distinguish between them except by the Holy Scriptures. By their testimony every statement and every miracle must be tested.--GC 593 (1911).

The Deception Is Almost Universal

There is now need of earnest, working men and women who will seek for the salvation of souls, for Satan as a powerful general has taken the field, and in this last remnant of time he is working through all conceivable methods to close the door against light that God would have come to His people. He is sweeping the whole world into his ranks, and the few who are faithful to God's requirements are the only ones

171

who can ever withstand him, and even these he is trying to overcome.--3SM 389 (1889).  

The forms of the dead will appear, through the cunning device of Satan, and many will link up with the one who loveth and maketh a lie. I warn our people that right among us some will turn away from the faith and give heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, and by them the truth will be evil spoken of.  

A marvellous work shall take place. Ministers, lawyers, doctors, who have permitted these falsehoods to overmaster their spirit of discernment, will be themselves deceivers, united with the deceived. A spiritual drunkenness will take possession of them.--UL 317 (1905).
