"Others rashly denied the light behind them, and said it was not God 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."

"WE WANT THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST.” {Lt66-1894 (April 10, 1894) par. 18} - EGW *(see full quote below)

"“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.” “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him because we keep his commandments and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children keep yourselves from idols.” The Lord is soon to come. We want that complete and perfect understanding which the Lord alone can give. It is not safe to catch the spirit from another. WE WANT THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST. If we commune with God, we shall have strength and grace and efficiency.” {Lt66-1894 (April 10, 1894) par. 18} - EGW

"While He extends to all the world His invitation to come to Him and be saved, He commissions His angels to render divine help to every soul that cometh to Him in repentance and contrition, and He comes personally by His Holy Spirit into the midst of His church.” {Lt2d-1892 (December 23, 1892) par. 7} - EGW

"JEHOVAH, OUR FATHER, AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST ARE ALONE TO BE EXALTED. The knowledge of God is eternal life to those who receive it. His holy banner is to stand elevated above all the greatness of the greatest men, above all the honor and glory of the world.” {Ms11-1898 (June 29, 1898) par. 11} - EGW

"In giving His commission to His followers, Christ did not tell them they would be left alone. He assured them that He would be near them. He spoke of His Omnipresence in a special way. Go to all nations, He said. Go, to the farthest portion of the habitable globe, but know that My presence will be there. Labor in faith and confidence, for the time will never come when I shall forsake you." (Manuscript 138, 1897) - EGW

"We shall learn the value of the human soul when we learn to value the love of God for us. A divine Saviour died for all, that all might find in Him their divine Source. In Christ Jesus we are one, lifted to the same rank, members of the royal family, children of the heavenly King, by the utterance of one name, “Our Father,” through Jesus Christ who loved us and gave His life a ransom for us. This places an equal value upon all. To the poor and oppressed and downtrodden of earth, Christ says, “If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, even the Spirit of truth, (which is Christ formed within the hope of glory,) whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not: but ye know him, for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless.”" {Ms24-1898 (February 22, 1898) par. 21} - EGW *comment in parenthesis was in original statement.

"Jesus said He would give us the Comforter. What is the Comforter? It is the Holy Spirit of God. What is the Holy Spirit? It is the representative of Jesus Christ, it is our advocate that stands by our side and places our petitions before the Father all fragrant with His merits. There He accepts the petition of the humblest saint. He doesn’t ask you how much money you have, or how heavy you are loaded with property, but [He accepts] the very humblest saint that brings his petition to God, and [his] thank offering is made fragrant with the riches of His grace, and the Father accepts it as your offering, and the blessing comes to you, grace for grace. As you pour out your thank offering, God is glorified, and He gives you more. As you pour out thanksgiving He gives you more joy. We learn to praise God from whom all blessings flow. Shall we not begin right here to turn over the page and forget our murmurings and complainings and faultfinding, and educate the tongue to courteous words, and loving words, and sympathetic words, and tender kindness for one another of His children? Let us show Christ formed within, the hope of glory, by the fruit that we bear, and thus we can evidence to the world a living Saviour. He is not in Joseph’s new tomb. No, He is risen. He has risen a live, not a dead, Christ. We have a living Christ. He arose. He broke the fetters of the tomb. In triumph He rejoices over the rent sepulchre of Joseph. “I am the resurrection and the life.” Glory to God! I praise Him, the resurrection and the life! You have got a living Saviour. Then hang your helpless souls on Jesus Christ. Abide in the vine, and bear fruit to His glory, and His joy shall be in you, and your joy shall be full. May the blessing of God rest upon these hearers. May the Holy Spirit of God impress the heart, and may the character reveal the loveliness of Jesus Christ, because you are His representatives, is my prayer." {Ms43-1894 (October 27, 1894) par. 31} - EGW

"Earthly comforters may do their best, they speak to the ear, but there is no comfort like Christ’s, so tender and so true. He is touched with the feelings of our infirmities. His Spirit speaks to the heart. Circumstances may separate friends; the wide, broad sea may roll its restless waters between us and them. Their words and sincere wishes may still exist, and yet they be unable to demonstrate them, and do for us that which would be pleasantly and gratefully received, but no distance, no circumstances can separate us from “the Comforter.” Wherever we are, wherever we may go, He is there, always a presence, a person connected with heaven, One given us in Christ’s place, to act in His stead. He is always at our right hand, to speak to us soothing, gentle words, to support, sustain, uphold, and cheer.” {Lt89b-1897 (March 22, 1897) par. 5} - EGW

"Keep cheerful. Do not forget that you have a Comforter, the Holy Spirit, which Christ has appointed. You are never alone. If you will listen to the voice that now speaks to you, if you will respond without delay to the knocking at the door of your heart, “Come in, Lord Jesus, that I may sup with thee and thee with me,” the heavenly Guest will enter. When this element, which is all divine, abides with you, there is peace and rest. It is the kingdom of heaven come nigh unto you.” {Lt124-1897 (March 7, 1897) par. 4} - EGW

"Before He left them, Christ gave His followers a positive promise that after His ascension He would send them the Holy Spirit. “Go, ye therefore,” He said, “and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father (a personal God) and of the Son (a personal Prince and Saviour), and of the Holy Ghost (sent from heaven to represent Christ); teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” {Ms41-1897 (April 29, 1897) par. 34} - EGW *inserted comments in original.

"Christ comes as a Comforter to all who believe. He invites your confidence. He says, “Abide in me.” Surely we may trust in our loving Saviour. You can say, “Yes, my Saviour; in thee I can and will trust. I will abide in thee.” Then how trustfully you can work in His presence. Your works will be but the fruit of Christ working in you. You may rest in what Christ can do for you. And the energies of your soul will be awakened to co-operate [with] Him. He will work in you to do His good pleasure.” {Lt103-1898 (November 21, 1898) par. 14} - EGW

The Shocking "
Most StartlingOmega Fulfillment: 

“Adventist beliefs have changed over the years under the impact of "present truth."Most startling  is the teaching regarding Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord. Many of the pioneers, including James White, J. N. Andrews, Uriah Smith, and J. H. Waggoner, held to an Arian or semi-Arian view—that is, the Son at some point in time before the Creation of our world was generated by the Father….Likewise, the Trinitarian understanding of God, now part of our fundamental beliefs, was not generally held by the early Adventists. Even today a few do not subscribe to it”. (Adventist Review, January 6, 1994, pp. 10, 11)

“Some will tend to resist this doctrine (the trinity) because it is NOT FOUND expressly

stated in the scriptures.” Adventist Review Aug 20 1993 P-8

"ONLY by FAITH can we accept the existence of the Trinity." Adventist Review,
Vol. 158, No. 31, p. 4.

What happened to a "Thus Saith the Lord" and a "It is written"??? Being people of the "book" (the Bible)???

Had Laodicea studied Daniel and Revelation they would notice the error as defined in EW p74. 

Had Laodicea studied Daniel and Revelation they would not have listened to th eministerial assoication of Laodiceans and obliged the laity to adorn their 27 FBs which factored in FB #2 with the immediate recourse of imbibing in the central doctrine of the Little Horn.

One of the most significant statements by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in recent times regarding advancement in light (???) is that of William G. Johnsson, Editor of the Adventist Review:

"Adventist beliefs have changed over the years under the impact of ‘present truth’. Most startling is the teaching regarding Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord. . . . the Trinitarian understanding of God, now part of our fundamental beliefs, was not generally held by the early Adventists" - Adventist Review, Jan 6, 1994. p.10.

Of such significance is this change that George Knight, Andrews University Seminary professor made the following statement in Ministry, the official Seventh-day Adventist journal for ministers:

"Most of the founders of Seventh-day Adventism would not be able to join the church today if they had to subscribe to the denomination’s Fundamental Beliefs. More specifically, most would not be able to agree to belief number 2, which deals with the doctrine of the trinity" - Ministry, October 1993, p. 10.

The God of heaven saw it fit to establish the Advent movement on a solid foundation of truth. This foundation included a correct understanding of who He is.

“Ahaziah fell down through a lattice in his upper chamber that was in Samaria, and was sick: and he sent messengers, and said unto them, Go, inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron whether I shall recover of this disease. But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say unto them, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that ye go to inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron? Now therefore thus saith the Lord, Thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.” 2 Kings 1:2-4.

The history of King Ahaziah’s sin and punishment has a lesson of warning which none can disregard with impunity. Though we do not pay homage to heathen gods, yet thousands are worshiping at Satan’s shrine as verily as did the king of Israel. The very spirit of heathen idolatry is rife today, though under the influence of science and education it has assumed a more refined and attractive form. Every day adds sorrowful evidence that faith in the sure word of prophecy is fast decreasing, and that in its stead superstition and satanic witchery are captivating the minds of men. All who do not earnestly search the Scriptures and submit every desire and purpose of life to that unerring test, all who do not seek God in prayer for a knowledge of His will, will surely wander from the right path and fall under the deception of Satan.

The Hebrews were the only nation favored with a knowledge of the true God. When the king of Israel sent to inquire of a pagan oracle, he proclaimed to the heathen that he had more confidence in their idols than in the God of his people, the Creator of the heavens and the earth. In the same manner do those who profess to have a knowledge of God’s word dishonor Him when they turn from the Source of strength and wisdom to ask help or counsel from the powers of darkness. If God’s wrath was kindled by such a course on the part of a wicked, idolatrous king, how can He regard a similar course pursued by those who profess to be His servants?576 Testimonies for the Church 5:191, 192, 196



"The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-day Adventists, and that this reformation would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. Were this reformation to take place, what would result? The principles of truth that God in His wisdom has given to the remnant church, would be discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last fifty years would be accounted as error. A new organization would be established. Books of a new order would be written. A system of intellectual philosophy (trinity) would be introduced. The founders of this system would go into the cities, and do a wonderful work. The Sabbath of course, would be lightly regarded, as also the God who created it. Nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the new (501c3) movement (started 1845 and waxing stronger - 79 years ago, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists mingles churchcraft with statecraft and adopts the blasphemous Eucharistic doctrine by applying for and being approved for a Federal IRS tax status on February 20, 1936 and again on January 6, 1950 under which ruling all under its auspices still operates). The leaders would teach that virtue is better than vice, but God being removed, they would place their dependence on human power, which, without God, is worthless. Their foundation would be built on the sand, and storm and tempest would sweep away the structure. {1SM 204.2}" Ellen G White, 1 Selected Messages 204.2.

Church becomes Laodicean 1852 (June 10) "Many who profess to be looking for the speedy coming of Christ, are becoming conformed to this world, and seek more earnestly the applause of those around them, than the approbation of God. They are cold and formal, like the nominal church, that they but a short time since separated from. The words addressed to the Laodicean Church, describe their present condition perfectly....And unless they heed the counsel of the 'faithful and True Witness,' and zealously repent, and obtain 'gold tried in the fire,' 'white raiment,' and 'eye-salve,' he will spue them out of his mouth." E.G. White, Review and Herald, June 10, 1852, Vol. 1, p. 18, col. 2.

GC.458.001 "It was not the will of God that Israel should wander forty years in the wilderness; He desired to lead them directly to the land of Canaan and establish them there, a holy, happy people. But "they could not enter in because of unbelief." Hebrews 3:19. Because of their backsliding and apostasy they perished in the desert, and others were raised up to enter the Promised Land. In like manner, it was not the will of God that the coming of Christ should be so long delayed and His people should remain so many years in this world of sin and sorrow. But unbelief separated them from God. As they refused to do the work which He had appointed them, others (144,000 and 5 wise virgins/guests/Sons and Daughters of God) were raised up to proclaim the message. In mercy to the world, Jesus delays His coming, that sinners may have an opportunity to hear the warning and find in Him a shelter before the wrath of God shall be poured out."

"But there were so many to jest and ridicule that they partook of the same spirit, resisted the invitations of mercy, refused to reform, and were soon among the boldest and most defiant scoffers; for none are so reckless, and go to such lengths in sin, as those who have once had light, but have resisted the convicting Spirit of God. Thus while God was working to draw man to himself, man, in his rebellion, was drawing away from God, and continually resisting the pleadings of infinite love." ST April 1, 1886, par. 3

"I saw those who have been baptized as a door into the (501c3) churches, would have to be baptized again as a door into the faith (Acts 2:38). Those who have not been baptized since 1844 will have to be before Jesus comes. And some I saw would not make progress till the duty was performed." Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 3.8
 

Like King Ahaziah, 501c3 non-profit, tax-exempt the Seventh-day Adventist Conference as a body collectively have gotten up a 28 doctrine creed like the heathen churches around them and claim to worship the strange trinity gods that originally were setup by Nimrod, Semiramis and Tammuz - the names have been changed over the centuries to now sound like Biblical sounding names called "God the Father", "God the Son" and "God the Holy Spirit". Since the modern Seventh-day Adventist organization (theological tare bundle Matthew 13:30 "Let both grow together until the harvest (October 22, 1844 until probation closes for the World and dark day occurs like the dark day in the plagues of Egypt): and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers (144,000 being chosen and numbered since October 22, 1844 until the Sunday law legislation), Gather ye together first the tares (501c3 SDA churches), and bind them in bundles (theological fences/501c3 organizations) to burn them: 


2 Samuel 23:7 "Whoever touches thorns uses a tool of iron or the shaft of a spear; they are burned up where they lie."

Isaiah 17:5 "It will be as when reapers harvest the standing grain, gathering the grain in their arms-- as when someone gleans heads of grain in the Valley of Rephaim" (valley of Giants). Giants in the truth...144,000 living the truth perfectly. In perfect agreement with God. Holy. Perfect.

Matthew 3:12 "His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

Matthew 13:25 "But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away."

Matthew 13:29 "'No,' he answered, 'because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them."

but gather the wheat (144,000 and 5 wise virgins/guests/Sons and Daughters of God) into my barn.") agreed to the Eucharistic doctrine officially on Feb 20, 1936:


As Ellen White predicted in 1SM204.2, a new 501c3 organization has been established: 

79 years ago, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists mingles churchcraft with statecraft and adopts the blasphemous Eucharistic doctrine by applying for and being approved for a Federal IRS tax status on February 20, 1936 and again on January 6, 1950 under which ruling all under its auspices still operates

Ellen G. White, has warned that "Satan has taken full possession of the churches as a body."  Spiritual Gifts. Volume 1, p. 189.1 and  Early Writings, p. 273.2 

The warning has come: Nothing is to be allowed to come in that will disturb the foundation of the faith upon which we have been building ever since the message came in1842, 1843, and 1844. I was in this message, and ever since I have been standing before the world, true to the light that God has given us. We do not propose to take our feet off the platform on which they were placed as day by day we sought the Lord with earnest prayer, seeking for light. Do you think that I could give up the light that God has given me? It is to be as the Rock of Ages. (GCB April 6th1903)

       We have, as had John, a message to bear of the things which we have seen and heard. God is not giving us a new message. We are to proclaim the message that in 1843 and 1844 brought us out of the other churches. We need the Holy Spirit to kindle in our hearts the zeal and earnestness that were then seen among God's people. I thank the Lord that there are still living a few who can remember those days, and who know whereof they speak.(RH Jan 19th 1905)

       The truths that we received in 1841, '42, '43, and '44 are now to be studied and proclaimedThe messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit.(15MR Ltr 75 1905)

        All the messages given from 1840-1844 are to be made forcible NOWfor there are many people who have lost their bearingsThe messages are to go to all the (SDA and other) churches.  {21MR 437.1}(LTR 54 1906)

       God bids us give our time and strength to the work of preaching to the people the messages that stirred men and women in 1843 and 1844.  {MR760 30.1}(July 4th 1907)

What God does 501c3 non-profit/tax-exempt Adventism membership worship today (tritheism) if it was NOT GOD who led the pioneers of Adventism out of the other churches? Here is a interesting video about who all 501c3 churches worship today:

FIRST ANGELS MESSAGE: "Many who had been trained to worship their church and their minister, here learned to "fear God" alone, and "give glory to him." This message weaned us from this world, and led us to the feet of Jesus, to seek forgiveness of all our sins, and a free and full salvation through the blood of Christ." James White "from heaven," Amen.  p. 3, Para. 2

While visiting the Vatican earlier today, Mr Peres asked Pope Francis to head a parallel United Nations called the “United Religions to counter religious extremism in the world today.

Peres said the United Nations and its peacekeepers “do not have the force or the effectiveness of any one of the Pope’s homilies, which can draw half a million people just in St Peter’s Square alone.”

“So given that the United Nations has run its course, what we need is an organisation of United Religions,” Mr Peres said, as “the best way to counteract these terrorists who kill in the name of their faith.”

“What we need is an unquestionable moral authority who says out loud, ‘No. God doesn’t want this and doesn’t allow it,’” he stated.


 Revelation 13:5-6 (KJV) "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months." 

"This entire chapter (Revelation 13) is a revelation of what WILL [future tense] surely take place." 19MR 182.6 Manuscript Releases Volume Nineteen [Nos. 1360-1419], p. 182.6S.D.A. Bible Commentary Vol. 7, p. 979.10

INTERESTING STUDY: Rev 13:5 says Pope Francis, first black Jesuit Roman King "the man" (Rev 14:16, 2 Thessalonians 2:3,) reigns for 42 months, which equals 3.5 years or 1260 days. Jesuit Pope Francis started his reign on March 19, 2013 to Sept 19, 2016. At this time - Michael stands up - PROBATION for the WORLD is closed, the preaching or ministry of the gospel is ENDED: "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." Daniel 12:1, Revelation 22:11, Jeremiah 30:7, Joel 2:2, Matthew 24:21, Daniel 12:10.

During the literal day for day prophecy occurring right now - from March 19, 2013 until September 19, 2016 is the time the church of the firstborn goes into the wilderness or becomes "OBSCURE". 
Wilderness means "obscure" - little known to the Catholics. "The saints then will be an obscure people little KNOWN to the Catholics." Ellen White Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 1.5. Those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus will be persecuted by their former brethren. Members of your own family and household will become your worst enemies. Don't be afraid of those that can kill your body - but rather those who can kill your soul. Many will be beheaded for Christ's sake. 

Consider this prophecy:

The religion of Jesus is endangered. It is being mingled with worldliness. Worldly policy is taking the place of the true piety and wisdom that comes from above, and God will remove His prospering hand from the conference. Shall the Ark of the Covenant be removed from this people? Shall idols be smuggled in? Shall false principles and false precepts be brought into the sanctuary? Shall antichrist be respected? Shall the true doctrines and principles given us by God, which have made us what we are, be ignored? Shall God's instrumentality, the publishing house, become a mere political, worldly institution? This is directly where the enemy, through blinded, unconsecrated men, is leading us. —21MR 448.3.

Ultimately, how will this situation resolve itself?

The work which the church has failed to do in a time of peace and prosperity she will have to do in a terrible crisis under most discouraging, forbidding circumstances. The warnings that worldly conformity has silenced or withheld must be given under the fiercest opposition from enemies of the faith. And at that time the superficial, conservative class, whose influence has steadily retarded the progress of the work, will renounce the faith and take their stand with its avowed enemies, toward whom their sympathies have long been tending. These apostates will then manifest the most bitter enmity, doing all in their power to oppress and malign their former brethren and to excite indignation against them. This day is just before us. The members of the church will individually be tested and proved. They will be placed in circumstances where they will be forced to bear witness for the truth. Many will be called to speak before councils and in courts of justice, perhaps separately and alone. The experience which would have helped them in this emergency they have neglected to obtain, and their souls are burdened with remorse for wasted opportunities and neglected privileges.  —Testimonies For the Church, Vol. 5, 463.


Revelation 12:6 says "And the woman (God's church) fled into the wilderness (obscurity - little known to the Catholics or Catholic Adventists), where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed (be nourished with pure truth) her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (1260 days/42 months/3.5 years)". Revelation 11:3 "And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." 

Jesus is trying to stir up his people, wake them up, make them wise virgins, so that they can soar as a eagle - Deuteronomy 32:11 "As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:" Christ is trying to teach us to fly in truth and righteousness - Christ's truth = the truth about Christ - the twice born only Son of the living God - so we can STAND in the sight of a HOLY GOD without His mediation. Let the just be just...Revelation 12:14 "The woman (God's church those who obey all ten commandments and have the faith of Jesus) was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness (obscure - little known to the Catholics), where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent's (devils) reach."

Exodus 19:4 "You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself." Isaiah 31:5 "Like birds hovering overhead, the LORD Almighty will shield Jerusalem (historical SDA doctrine today - the doctrine of Christ 2 John 1:9); he will shield it and deliver it, he will 'pass over' it and will rescue it."

"What are the chambers in which they are to hide?—They are the protection of Christ and holy angels. The people of God are not at this time all in one place. They are in different companies, and in all parts of the earth; and they will be tried singly, not in groups. Every one must stand the test forhimself." (The Review and Herald, November 19, 1908).S.D.A. Bible Commentary 

"There was a coming out, a decided separation from the wicked, an escape for life. So it was in the days of Noah; so with Lot; so with the disciples prior to the destruction of Jerusalem; and SO IT WILL BE IN THE LAST DAYSAgain the voice of God is heard in a message of warning, bidding His people separate themselves from the prevailing iniquity." Patriarchs and Prophets, p 166.


Large Numbers Accept the Truth—The time of God’s destructive judgments is the time of mercy for those who have no opportunity to learn what is truth. Tenderly will the Lord look upon them. His heart of mercy is touched; His hand is still stretched out to save, while the door is closed to those who would not enter. Large numbers will be admitted who in these last days hear the truth for the first time. (The Review and Herald, July 5, 1906).

In fact, in 1867 Ellen White foresaw the SDA church becoming Catholic! (see Testimonies, vol 1, p 578, January 29, 1867):
Prophecy:
“That night I dreamed that I was in Battle Creek looking out from the side glass at the door and saw a company marching up to the house, two and two. They looked stern and determined. I knew them well and turned to open the parlor door to receive them, but thought I would look again. The scene was changed. The company now presented the appearance of a Catholic procession. One bore in his hand a cross, another a reed. And as they approached, the one carrying a reed made a circle around the house, saying three times: "This house is proscribed. The goods must be confiscated. They have spoken against our holy order." Terror seized me, and I ran through the house, out of the north door, and found myself in the midst of a company, some of whom I knew, but I dared not speak a word to them for fear of being betrayed. I tried to seek a retired spot where I might weep and pray without meeting eager, inquisitive eyes wherever I turned. I repeated frequently: "If I could only understand this! If they will tell me what I have said or what I have done!" Testimonies for The Church Vol. 1 p. 578, January 29, 1867

Lucifer Worshipers Exposed!!! Here is a picture - of the image in Dan 2 - showing more about where we are in this earth's history: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B2neZhb9OpYNMHZuTTJVLWljQ28/edit?hl=en&forcehl=1

I saw the nominal church and nominal Adventists, like Judas, would betray us to the Catholics to obtain their influence to come against the truth. The saints then will be an obscure people, little known to the Catholics; but the churches and nominal Adventists who know of our faith and customs (for they hated us on account of the Sabbath, for they could not refute it) will betray the saints and report them to the Catholics as those who disregard the institutions of the people; that is, that they keep the Sabbath and disregard Sunday. —Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 1.

It is clear from this second passage that the "nominal church" can only be the superficially genuine but apostate protestant church and that "nominal Adventists" are the superficial, conservative Adventists that will unite with mainstream Christianity. 

When will this separation take place? In Ellen White's eschatology, all these events transpire during the time of the great shaking of the church [2], just before the end of the world. One revelation that Ellen White specified very clearly is that we are already in the time for "the removal of those things that are being shaken so that the things which cannot be shaken may remain" (Hebrews 12:25-27). 


The God of heaven saw it fit to establish the Advent movement on a solid foundation of truth. This foundation included a correct understanding of who He is. Some have had the idea that Ms. White changed her belief about God about the time of 1895 when she wrote the book Desire of Ages.  This would be an impossibility considering that when she wrote to Kellogg about a false belief about who or what God was, she referred him to the foundation that was established in 1844 by pioneers such as her husband James White, elder Joseph Bates and Hiram Edson.  Let’s look at a couple of these statements.  Here is what she said to Kellogg:

“Many of our people do not realize how firmly the foundation of our faith has been laid. My husbandElder Bates, Father pierce, Elder [Hiram] Edson, and others who were keen, noble, and true, were among those who, after the passing of the time in 1844, searched for the truth as for hidden treasure. I met with them, and we studied and prayed earnestly…. light was given that helped us to understand the scriptures in regard to Christ, His mission, and His priesthood. A line of truth extending from that time to the time when we shall enter the city of God, was made plain to me, and I gave to others the instruction that the Lord had given me. . . What influence is it that would lead men at this stage of our history to work in an underhand, powerful way to tear down the foundation of our faith–the foundation that was laid at the beginning of our work by prayerful study of the Word and revelation? Upon this foundation we have been building for the past fifty years.” (Selected Messages bk.1, p. 206-7 1904 Ellen White)

“The evidence given in our early experience has the same force that it had then. The truth is the same as it ever has been, and not a pin or a pillar can be moved from the structure of truth. That which was sought for out of the Word in 1844, 1845, and 1846 remains the truth in every particular.” Letter 38, 1906 Ellen White

Fundamental Principle #1-The foundation of our faith which included a correct understanding of God

I.That there is one God, a personal spiritual being, the creator of all things, omnipotent, omniscient, and eternal, infinite in wisdom, holiness, justice, goodness, truth, and mercy; unchangeable, and everywhere present by his representative, the Holy Spirit. Ps. 139:7.(from 1872, 1889 fundamental principles of Seventh Day Adventists)

Quoting from 1 Corinthians 8:6 which tells us there is “One God the father”.  This is a much different statement than the new belief accepted by General Conference Adventists that there is One God, an “impersonal office of three persons”. 

Only those who obey Rev 18:4 and Matthew 25:6 will be a part of the 144,000. Those who make up the 144,000 started in 1844. To those who GO OUT TO MEET THE BRIDEGROOM will the loud cry message of Isaiah 60:1 be given.

Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 420: - “"Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee." Isa. 60:1. To those who go out to meet the Bridegroom is this message given.” {COL 420.3}

Moses was instructed that we are not to follow a multitude to do evil.

Exodus 23:2: - “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to [do] evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest [judgment].” New International Version: "Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd,

The wise man instructed us not to be enticed to do evil by our associates.

Proverbs 1:10: - “My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.”

“Man may become a partaker of the divine nature; not a soul lives who may not summon the aid of Heaven in temptation and trial. Christ came to reveal the SOURCE of his power, that man might never rely on his unaided human capabilities.” (Ellen G. White, Review & Herald 18th February 1890, ‘How to meet a controverted point of doctrine’)


The 42 months or 1,260 days is also known as the 3.5 years of the “LITTLE TIME OF TROUBLE” when in the WILDERNESS (obscure) the 144,000 (Bride of Christ/Mt. Zion/New Jerusalem/Zechariah 8:2) and their spiritual children (5 wise virgins) being FED truth so they will be able to STAND during the time of JACOBS trouble without a mediator (those who are martyred today for Christ who live and give the 3 angels messages will be raised back to life about 15 days before Christ returns the 2nd time). The Dark Ages WILL BE REPEATED, only in 1,260 LITERAL DAYS instead of the day for a year which occurred 538 AD to 1798 AD. The little time of trouble started March 19, 2013 when Jesuit Pope Francis the eighth and final King of the Papacy was coronated and he started his reign according to Rev 13:5. His reign lasts for 42 months or 1,260 literal days, or 3.5 years which would make it come to September 19, 2016 which is cut short by 25 days. Then the time of Jacobs trouble starts and should last for the space of 1/2 hour or 15 days, then Jesus will return at the END of the 7th plague. Jesus comes AFTER the GREAT TIME of TROUBLE, THE 7 LAST PLAGUES. FOLKS I AM STUDYING HERE. SO PLEASE DON'T LOSE YOUR FAITH IF THIS DOES NOT OCCUR EXACTLY AS I'VE THOUGHT BASED ON MY STUDIES.

Urgent PROPHECY Warning for Our SDA before SUNDAY LAW
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AsWiYrwWF0

The eighth Roman Ceaser king started his reign of terror on March 13, 2013 and reigns for 42 months, 3.5 years or 1260 days until Sept 19, 2016. Probation closes for the world and the plagues begin for 1 year that are cut short in righteousness. Sept 30, 2016 is the Jubilee year day of atonement? The year God rescues His people from slavery and the year the 1000 year land rests from sin?  Bible suppressed = two witnesses wearing sackcloth - Read page 688 of the following book:

Book "History of the Advent Believers" < 

"The Jews kept but six Sabbaths, if they had kept the seventh they would have been made perfect"!

"Seventh Day Adventist church facing a legal and financial collapse.organization's tax-exempt status could be revoked soon? Just a matter of time.

"The plain straight testimony must live in the church, or the curse of God will rest upon His people as surely as it did upon ancient Israel because of their sins. God holds His people, as a body [corporately], responsible for the sins existing in individuals among them." Testimonies for the Church Volume 3, p. 269.2

"The Catholic Church has long recognized the validity of Protestant baptisms in which the person was baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." 

“By virtue of their valid baptism, and their belief in Christ’s divinity and in the doctrine of the Trinity, Seventh-Day Adventists are both ontologically and theologically Christians. But Christians, once separated from the Church our Lord founded, are susceptible to being "tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine" (Eph. 4:14).” Catholic Answers on Seventh-Day Adventists, (current as of 2011). http://www.catholic.com/library/Seventh_Day_Adventism.asp

“The history of the early experiences in the message will be a power to withstand the masterly ingenuity of Satan's deceptions.” EGW, Letter 99, 1905.

"The God of heaven saw it fit to establish the Advent movement on a solid foundation of truth. This foundation included a correct understanding of who He is. The Advent band was not left to wander through the multiplied delusions of the spiritualizers. From the earliest visions God assured His children of the reality of His being. “I have often seen the lovely Jesus, that He is a person. I asked Him if His Father was a person and had a form like Himself. Said Jesus, “I am in the express image of My Father’s person.” I have often seen that the spiritual view took away all the glory of heaven […]” {E.G. White, Early Writings, p. 77}

WE are to be in the express IMAGE/copy of Jesus's person... His Life, His Soul, In US!

“Unless (people) keep this Faith whole and undefiled, without doubt (they) shall perish everlastingly. And the Catholic faith is this: we worship one God in Trinity. The mystery of the trinity is the central doctrine of Catholic faith. Upon it are based all the other teachings of the church.” Handbook for Today’s Catholic, p.16. 
 
“The Church studied this mystery with great care and, after four centuries of clarification, decided to state the doctrine in this way: in the unity of the Godhead there are three Persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit - truly distinct one from another. Thus in the words of the Athanasian Creed" The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are not three gods but one God.” 1991 Handbook for Today's Catholic, page 11-12. 
 
“Q. Do you observe other necessary truths as taught by the Church, not clearly laid down in Scripture?” 
 
“A. The doctrine of the Trinity, a doctrine the knowledge of which is certainly necessary to salvation, is not explicitly and evidently laid down in Scripture, in the Protestant sense of private interpretation.”— Advent Review and Sabbath Herald, August 22, 1854 -Quoted from “Doctrinal Catechism” of the Catholic Church. 
 
“Our opponents sometimes claim that no belief should be held dogmatically which is not explicitly stated in Scripture . . . But the Protestant churches have themselves accepted such dogmas as the Trinity, for which there is no such precise authority in the Gospels.”— Assumption of Mary, Graham Greene, Life magazine, October 30, 1950

 

WE ARE NOT TO PUT OUR TRUST IN THE ARM OF FLESH: -

 

There is a curse pronounced by the Lord upon those who place their trust in man and rely upon the arm of flesh for their strength. This leads their hearts to depart from following the Lord. On the other hand, there is a blessing pronounced upon those who put their trust in the Lord and not in the arm of flesh.

Jeremiah 17:5 - 8: - “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed [be] the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, [in] a salt land and not inhabited. Blessed [is] the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and [that] spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.”

 

The Testimony of Jesus has plainly counseled us that we are not to accept the opinions of commentators, but we should study the Bible for ourselves, making the Scripture its own expositor.

Gospel Workers, 1892 Edition, p. 126: - “We are not to accept the opinion of commentators as the voice of God; they were erring mortals like ourselves. God has given reasoning powers to us as well as to them. We should make the Bible its own expositor.”  {GW92 126.2} 

 

The practice of looking to pastors or professors of theology as our spiritual guides, instead of searching the Scriptures for ourselves, is the ploy and snare of Satan!

1884 Great Controversy, pp. 413 & 414: - “Satan is constantly endeavoring to attract attention to man in the place of God. He leads the people to look to bishops, to pastors, to professors of theology, as their guides, instead of searching the Scriptures to learn their duty for themselves. Then by controlling the minds of these leaders he can influence the multitudes according to his will.”  {4SP 413.3}

 

THE 1888 MESSAGE OF JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH IN JESUS AND NOT LOOKING TO MAN: -

 

Most Sabbath-keeping Adventists, do not realize that one of the practical results of the 1888 message of Justification by Faith in Jesus, was God’s attempt to get our eyes off constantly looking to spiritual leaders and ministers for help and guidance, and rather, to focus our attention and faith on Christ alone as our Saviour. The reason that this was a desperately needed, was because Sabbath-keeping Adventists HAD FOR YEARS been guilty of looking towards man and expecting to receive spiritual help from man, instead of expecting to receive spiritual help from going directly to our Saviour Jesus. This truth is plainly revealed in the following well known statement from the pen of the Testimony of Jesus.  

Testimonies to Ministers, pp. 91 – 94: - “The Lord in His great mercy sent a most precious message to His people through Elders Waggoner and Jones. This message was to bring more prominently before the world the uplifted Saviour, the sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. It presented justification through faith in the Surety; it invited the people to receive the righteousness of Christ, which is made manifest in obedience to all the commandments of God. Many had lost sight of Jesus. They needed to have their eyes directed to His divine person, His merits, and His changeless love for the human family. All power is given into His hands, that He may dispense rich gifts unto men, imparting the priceless gift of His own righteousness to the helpless human agent. This is the message that God commanded to be given to the world. It is the third angel's message, which is to be proclaimed with a loud voice, and attended with the outpouring of His Spirit in a large measure.    The message of the gospel of His grace was to be given to the church in clear and distinct lines, that the world should no longer say that Seventh-day Adventists talk the law, the law, but do not teach or believe Christ.     Now, it has been Satan's determined purpose to eclipse the view of Jesus and lead men to look to man, and trust to man, and be educated to expect help from man. For years the church has been looking to man and expecting much from man, but not looking to Jesus, in whom our hopes of eternal life are centered. Therefore God gave to His servants a testimony that presented the truth as it is in Jesus, which is the third angel's message, in clear, distinct lines.  This is the testimony that must go throughout the length and breadth of the world. It presents the law and the gospel, binding up the two in a perfect whole.”

NOTE: - This statement in a nutshell, gives us a summary of what the 1888 message involved, as far as the SDA church structure is concerned: -

  1. Justification by faith in Jesus – which leads to obedience to the Law of God.

  2. This message was to uplift Jesus before the people, because many SDA’s had lost sight of him for years, by looking to and trusting in man.

  3. This message was to be preached to the world, and was in fact the Loud Cry of the third angel, which is to be accompanied by the power of the Holy Spirit – the Latter Rain.

    "As the time comes for the loud cry to be given, the Lord will work through humble instruments, leading the minds of those who consecrate themselves to His service. The laborers will be qualified rather by the unction of His Spirit than by the training of literary institutions. Men of faith and prayer will be constrained to go forth with holy zeal (Holy Spirit, fervent zeal symbolized by tongues of flames on head), declaring the words which God gives them. The sins of Babylon ["poisonous doctrines, the wine of error." RH September 12, 1893, par. 20] will be laid open. The fearful results of a union of Church and State [AS OF MARCH 7, 2006, ALL -SDA included- 501c3 non-profit, tax-exempt status CHURCHES and independent organizations HAVE BECOME "OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES"], the inroads of Spiritualism ["There is ANOTHER universal and TRULY CATHOLIC ORGANIZATION, the SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH ." Neal Wilson. Adventist Review, 3/5/1981.], the stealthy but rapid progress of the papal power ,--all will be unmasked. By these solemn warnings the people will be stirred. Thousands upon thousands have never listened to words like these. In amazement they hear the testimony that Babylon is the (modern SDA's drink of the wine of error) church, fallen because of her errors and sins, because of her rejection of the truth sent to her from Heaven." Spirit of Prophecy, vol 4, p 424.
  4. Said the angel: “If light come, and that light is set aside or rejected, then comes condemnation and the frown of God; but before the light comes, there is no sin, for there is no light for them to reject.” Testimonies for the Church Volume 1, p. 116.1

  5. “Protestantism is a religious movement that encompasses forms of Christian faith and practice that originated with doctrines and religious, political, and ecclesiological impulses of the Protestant Reformation. The Reformation was a movement against what Protestants considered to be the errors of the Roman Catholic Church.[1] It is one of the largest divisions of Christianity”

    “I saw that the quick work that God was doing on earth would soon be cut short in righteousness (truth, right doing), Angeland that the swift messengers must speed on their way to search out the scattered flock. An angel said, "Are all messengers? No, no, God's messengers have A MESSAGE." The Present Truth, April 1, 1850, (Vol. 1, #9) The fire that fell on the disciples in the upper room symbolizes the FERVENT ZEAL that God’s people will work for his CHARACTER and primitive Godliness to be perfectly reproduced in their lives and others.

  6. “It is our individual duty to walk humbly with God. We are not to seek any strange, new message. We are not to think that the chosen ones of God who are trying to walk in the light, compose Babylon. The fallen denominational (501c3, non-profit, tax-exempt status) 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 pre-existence of Christ prior to his birth in Bethlehem, and advocating and exalting the first day of the week above God’s holy, sanctified day. These and kindred errors are presented to the world by the various, churches, and thus the Scriptures are fulfilled that say, ‘For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.’ It is a wrath which is created by false doctrines, and when kings and presidents drink this wine of the wrath of her fornication, they are stirred with anger against those who will not come into harmony with the false and Satanic heresies which exalt the false Sabbath, and lead men to trample under foot God’s memorial." RH September 12, 1893, par. 20)

     The Descent of the Holy Spirit

    “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” The Holy Ghost, assuming the form of tongues of fire divided at the tips, and resting upon those assembled, was an emblem of the gift which was bestowed upon them of speaking with fluency several different languages, with which they had formerly been unacquainted. And the appearance of fire signified the fervent zeal with which they would labor and the power (Christ) which would attend their words. Under this heavenly illumination the scriptures which Christ had explained to them stood forth in their minds with the vivid luster and loveliness of clear and powerful truth. The veil which had prevented them from seeing the end of that which was abolished was now removed, and the object of Christ’s mission and the nature of His kingdom were comprehended with perfect clearness."


    Satan has  succeeded in keeping Jesus from the view of many of God’s professed people. How? By getting man to look to man, and to expect help from man, instead of going to Jesus for themselves. Just listen to a few of the following inspired gems from the Testimony of Jesus, during the 1880’s and 1890’s, which clearly reveal this problem among Sabbath-keeping Adventists.

    R. & H., Book 2, pp. 311 & 312: - “Since my return from Europe [that was in August, 1887 – compiler], I have been pained to notice how men ask counsel of men, instead of seeking wisdom of God. We should make God our support. Those who bear responsibilities in our different institutions should go to him for wisdom. …  From the light that God has given me, I know that there might have been twenty-fold more accomplished than has been accomplished, if the workers had sought God for strength and support instead of depending so much upon man.” {RH, June 18, 1889 par. 7 & 9.} 


    R. & H., Book 2, p. 545: - “The sacredness has been lost from our labors, and we do not appreciate divine realities as we should,because we have lost sight of Jesus, and fastened our eyes upon humanity.” {RH, February 23, 1892 par. 8}

     

    R. & H., Book 2, p. 560: - “All truth is found in Christ. "Ye are complete in him." Satan is continually seeking to turn minds away from Christ. Through his devices, man has been exalted, and has received confidence and honor that belong only to God. The people have looked to men for wisdom, instead of looking to God. And in order to save man from ruin, God has been compelled to let him see his own weakness by withdrawing, in a great measure, the Holy Spirit from him.”  {RH, April 12, 1892 par. 26}

     

    HOW DO WE INDIVIDUALLY OBTAIN THE NECESSARY FAITH AND LOVE?


    The Testimony of Jesus has made it clear, that we MUST have a practical,INDIVIDUAL experience in trusting in God for ourselves, so that we can obtain the necessary faith and love, that Laodicea is counseled to obtain by the True Witness.

    Revelation 3:18: - “I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.” 

     

    Gospel Workers, 1892 Edition, p. 238: - “Every one needs a practical experience in trusting God for himself. Let no man become your confessor; open the heart to God; tell him every secret of the soul. Bring to him your difficulties, small and great, and he will show you a way out of them all. He alone can know how to give the very help you need. And when, after a trying season, help comes to you, when the Spirit of God is manifestly at work for you, what a precious experience you have gained. You are obtaining faith and love, the gold that the True Witness counsels you to buy of him. You are learning to go to God in all your troubles; and as you learn these precious lessons of faith, you will teach the same to others.” {GW92 238.1}

    "Many who went forth to meet the Bridegroom under the messages of the first and second angels, refused the third, the last testing message to be given to the world, and a similar position will be taken when the last call is made."  {RH, October 31, 1899 par. 12} 

     

    THE LORD IS TO BE OUR KING: -


    The Lord is to be the King over his people.

    Isaiah 33:22: - “For the LORD [is] our judge, the LORD [is] our lawgiver, the LORD [is] our king; he will save us.”

  7. What Prophetic Event Occurs March 13, 2013 to Sept. 13, 2016? The reign of the anti-Christ is forty-two months long. I believe Scripture tells us that the forty-two month reign of the anti-Christ will begin on March 13, 2013 and end forty-two months later, when Christ stands up and says "It if finished", when the plagues start to fall, then the 7th plague/7th trumpet at the Second Coming of the Lord during the Fall Feasts of the Lord? Day of Atonement on a Jubilee year: Sept 30, 2017, which will be cut short in righteousness. I am not predicting an exact date or time, just studying to know that Christ's coming is near, even at the door. The age of grace is about to come to an end.

    "My accompanying angel said, 'Time is almost finished. Get ready, get ready, get ready.' . . . now time is almost finished. . . and what we have been years learning, they will have to learn in a few months." (Early Writings, p. 67.2).

    Some are looking too far off for the coming of the Lord. Time has continued a few years longer than they expected; therefore they think it may continue a few years more, ….TIME CAN LAST BUT A VERY LITTLE LONGER”. Early Writings, p. 58.1

    "Had the purpose of God been carried out by His people in giving to the world the message of mercy, Christ would, ere this, have come to the earth, and the saints would have received their welcome into the city of God." Selected Messages Book 1, p. 82.4

    GC.458.001 It was not the will of God that Israel should wander forty years in the wilderness; He desired to lead them directly to the land of Canaan and establish them there, a holy, happy people. But "they could not enter in because of unbelief." Hebrews 3:19. Because of their backsliding and apostasy they perished in the desert, and others were raised up to enter the Promised Land. In like manner, it was not the will of God that the coming of Christ should be so long delayed and His people should remain so many years in this world of sin and sorrow. But unbelief separated them from God. As they refused to do the work which He had appointed them, others were raised up to proclaim the message. In mercy to the world, Jesus delays His coming, that sinners may have an opportunity to hear the warning and find in Him a shelter before the wrath of God shall be poured out.

    "But there were so many to jest and ridicule that they partook of the same spirit, resisted the invitations of mercy, refused to reform, and were soon among the boldest and most defiant scoffers; for none are so reckless, and go to such lengths in sin, as those who have once had light, but have resisted the convicting Spirit of God. Thus while God was working to draw man to himself, man, in his rebellion, was drawing away from God, and continually resisting the pleadings of infinite love." ST April 1, 1886, par. 3

    "I saw those who have been baptized as a door into the churches, would have to be baptized again as a door into the faith. Those who have not been baptized since 1844 will have to be before Jesus comes. And some I saw would not make progress till the duty was performed." Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 3.8

    "The angel said, some tried too hard to believe. Faith is so simple they look above it. Satan has deceived some, and got them to looking at their own unworthiness. I saw they must look away from self to the worthiness of Jesus, and throw themselves just as they are, needy, dependent upon His mercy, and draw by faith strength and nourishment from Him." --Ellen G. White Ms. 16, 1850, p. 2. (July 20, 1850.)

    "I saw Satan would work more powerfully now than ever he has before. He knows that his time is short and that the sealing of the saints will place them beyond his power and he will now work in every way that he can, and will try his every insinuation to get the saints off their guard and get them asleep on the present truth or doubting it so as to prevent their being sealed with the seal of the living God."--Ellen G. White Ms. 7, 1850, pp. 2-3 (August 24, 1850). Identical, in part, to Ms. 13, 1850.

    "And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine." Leviticus 20:26.

    Description:  cid:2.2324908801@web184301.mail.ne1.yahoo.com"Let all remember that God is holy and that none but holy beings can ever dwell in His presence...We are today to watch that we offend not in word or deed.... We must today seek God and be determined that we will not rest satisfied without His presence. We should watch and work and pray as though this were the last day that would be granted us. How intensely earnest, then, would be our life. How closely would we follow Jesus in all our words and deeds.." Maranatha, p. 41.3

    "Moses had been disappointed and grieved by the continual rebellion of Israel. Notwithstanding all his prayers and labors during their forty years’ journeying, only two of all the adults in the vast army that left Egypt, were found so faithful that they could see the promised land. As Moses reviewed the result of his labor, his life of trial and sacrifice seemed to have been almost in vain." ST March 31, 1881, par. 2

    “How many I saw coming up to the falling of the plagues without a shelter. Receive ye the Holy Ghost.” These are the words I sang. I sang them over and over again. They could hear it all over the campground, and they came together; but before that, the Lord showed me how they would wring their hands as the plagues were falling. The Lord can show anything in just a moment, better than he could tell it to us. And so he showed me how they would wring their hands, and that put on me a greater burden than ever. Well, that is when they arrested us...." Selected Messages Book 3, p. 366.4 

    "You are getting the coming of the Lord too far off. I saw the latter rain was coming as [suddenly as] the midnight cry, and with ten times the power." Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 2.1

    "Christian character is not achieved in an instant, but day after day we are to add to our faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge, and to knowledge temperance, and to temperance patience, and to patience brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness charity. It is in this way that we are to be made ready for the coming of Christ." RH April 21, 1891, par. 7

  8. INTERESTING STUDY: Rev 13:5 says Pope Francis, first black (black because he is a Jesuit - look this up on Wikipedia) Jesuit Roman King "the man" (Rev 14:16, 2 Thessalonians 2:3,) reigns for 42 months, which equals 3.5 years or 1260 days. I think Jesuit Pope Francis started his reign on March 13, 2013 and will be given authority until Sept 13, 2016. This would be a literal application of the 42 months. Now, if that IS true, 1 year is gone already, and that leaves 2.5 years left. Jesuit Pope Francis is soon to speak unprecedentedly  to our legislators, tentatively Sept 2015 or sooner"the final movements will be rapid ones." Last Day Events, p. 11.2

    About Pope Francis:  "Those who see you will stare at you. They will wonder about you: 'Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who made kingdoms quake," Isaiah 14:16

    Rev 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

    Ezekiel 28:9

    King James Version (KJV)

    Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.

  9. "We can know just where we are in this world’s history." Sermons and Talks Volume Two, p. 48.5

    I think this is where we are in the history of this world, in a raised field (Most Holy Place - secret place of the Most High) (EW 243.1), being fed truth while in the wilderness (Revelation 12:14) which represents seclusion and obscurity (GC p. 55) so we really are an obscure people to the Catholics....which Ellen White predicted...

    "Saints then will be an obscure peoplelittle known to the Catholics." Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 1.5

    "The free company, who appeared to be in an open field raised above the earth." Early Writings, p. 243.1Spiritual Gifts. Volume 1, p. 146.2

    Revelation 12:14 "And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place (seclusion and obscurity), where she is nourished (latter rain =fed truth that is watered with obedience=faith) for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent."

    Revelation 12:6
    The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

    Revelation 17:3
    Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit (those obeying Jesus) into a wilderness (seclusion and obscurity GC55). There I saw a woman (Pope Francis) sitting on a scarlet beast (ALL Protestant 501c3 non-profit/tax exempt churches (SDA included) in America legislating for what Pope Francis wants) that was covered with blasphemous names (Holy Father, Matthew 23:9, many more) and had seven heads (Vatican's 7 Hills) and ten horns (10 Kings).

    Deuteronomy 32:11
    "like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them aloft." to "an open field raised above the earth." Early Writings, p. 243.1Spiritual Gifts. Volume 1, p. 146.2

    Exodus 19:4
    You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself.

    Isaiah 40:31
    but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

    I think this wilderness (seclusion and obscurity) or little time of trouble started March 13, 2013...and lasts until Sept 13, 2016, which then gets worse, and turns into Jacobs time of trouble, when the Vatican is destroyed by a nuclear bomb??? just guessing there... but the ten kings and the pope are given power to rule the world for 1 hour or 15 days... still studying about this...

    "The church of Christ found refuge in seclusion and obscurity." The Great Controversy, p. 54.2


     "obscure people" —Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 1. 

    The home churches and small groups are the JETS of LIGHT that Ellen White said would occur in the end of time, like in raised fields filled with gems of truth. The story of Esther, the preparing to hear the Ten Commandments on Mt Sinai, David and Jonathon in the raised field all relate to Hosea 6:2 another end time prophecy as well, is what I believe. This little verse, Hosea 6:2 is simply amazing. I keep seeing things that parallel to it and Jesus second coming when the earth will be 6,000 years old. That is another reason I believe the end is near...if you just take the weekly Sabbath, that is another reason to study the end is near...it really helps me to study this, because I find so many gems of truth that fit into the whole puzzle, which stands on the foundation of the truth about God and His Son. IF I did not understand this, the other would not be plain for me to see. ALL of the things I am learning point to the 2016/2017 time frame for probation closing for the world and soon thereafter Christ's second return.

     I do not claim to have all the answers, I am just studying and this is what I am learning. If you feel I am wrong, please, by all means, show me where and how. I do not want to share wrong ideas or wrong information. We need to work together and help each other.
  10. Revelation 17:3  "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."

    My brethren, the value of the evidences of truth that we have received during the past half century, is above estimate. These evidences are as treasure hidden in a field. Search for them. Study the Bible truths that for fifty years have been calling us out from the world. Present this evidence in clear, plain lines. Those who have been long in the truth and those who have recently received the truth must now dig for the buried heavenly treasure. Let every man work to the point. Study the word of God. Revive the evidences given in the past.  “Search the Scriptures,” Christ said; “for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of Me.”

    Those who stand before the people as teachers of truth are to grapple with great themes. They are not to occupy precious time in talking of trivial subjects. Let them study the Word, and preach the Word. Let the Word be in their hands as a sharp, two-edged sword. Let it testify topast truths and show what is to be in the future are to shape our lives and that by us are to be proclaimed to the world. We are to keep abreast of the times, bearing a clear, intelligent testimony, guided by the unction of the Holy Spirit.—Manuscript 31, 1906. pp. 5, 6. (“Be Vigilant,” April 2, 1906.)

    Matthew 25:7
    "Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps.

    "The free company, who appeared to be in an open field raised above the earth." Early Writings, p. 243.1Spiritual Gifts. Volume 1, p. 146.2

 

The Psalmist and the gospel prophet Isaiah, have exhorted us, NOT to look to puny, mortal man for help.

Psalm 146:3: - “Put not your trust in princes, [nor] in the son of man, in whom [there is] no help.” 

 

Isaiah 2:22: - “Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?”

 

 Do we realize that the sin, and it is indeed a sin, of constantly looking to humanity for spiritual help and guidance, before we go directly to the Lord for guidance, is a violation of the inspired statements that I have shared with you in this study Now for us on this Conference call line, we may not run to the Conference ministers or Church Elders for spiritual help and guidance, when different spiritual problems or issues arise in our Christian walks. Well, I certainly hope we are not going to them for spiritual help and guidance! We may even not go to the different independent ministries for spiritual help and guidance, when problems or issues arise. But, too many of us  look to others for guidance or for their opinions on all kinds of issues and questions that they have, rather than going directly to God for help and guidance.

 

We should rather follow the example of the apostle Paul, who after his conversion, went into Arabia, to deepen his Christian experience, and to be alone with Jesus, rather than to confer with flesh and blood.

Galatians 1:11 & 12, 15 – 17: - “But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught [it], but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.  … But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called [me] by his grace, to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.” 

 

 

The following statement from the Spirit of Prophecy, sums up this issue very clearly for us. And please notice, that by our looking to humanity for guidance and wisdom, we are placing a separating veil between God and ourselves. In our individual experience, we are to be taught of God.

Testimonies to Ministers, pp. 483 & 484: - “"Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils," the Lord commands. By turning the minds of men to lean on human wisdom, we place a veil between God and man, so that there is not a seeing of Him who is invisible. In our individual experience we are to be taught of God.When we seek Him with a sincere heart, we will confess to Him our defects of character; and He has promised to receive all who come to Him in humble dependence. The one who yields to the claims of God will have the abiding presence of Christ, and this companionship will be to him a very precious thing. Taking hold of divine wisdom, he will escape the corruptions that are in the world through lust. Day by day he will learn more fully how to carry his infirmities to the One who has promised to be a very present help in every time of need. This message is spoken to our churches in every place. In the false experience that has been coming in, a decided influence is at work to exalt human agencies, and to lead some to depend on human judgment, and to follow the control of human minds. This influence is diverting the mind from God. God forbid that any such experience should deepen and grow in our ranks as Seventh-day Adventists. Our petitions are to reach higher than erring man -- to God. God does not confine Himself to one place or person. He looks down from heaven upon the children of men; He sees their perplexities, and is acquainted with the circumstances of every experience of life. He understands His own work upon the human heart, and needs not that any man should direct the workings of His Spirit.” 

 

 

One of the promises in the New Covenant, is that no longer will every one teach his neighbor and brother about the Lord, because all those who truly have entered into the New Covenant relationship, will know the Lord for themselves, as the Holy Spirit will be their teacher.

Hebrews 8:10 – 12: - “For this [is] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”

 

John 16:13: - “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.”

 

1st John 2:20 & 27: - “But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.    But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.”    

 

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS: -


We are to ask God for wisdom, and not puny man. But we must ask in faith; otherwise, we shal not receive the wisdom that we are asking the Lord for.

James 1:5 – 7: - “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.” 

Jesus is our WISDOM. Let us ask him for guidance and wisdom in our spiritual walk, instead of our constantly looking to man for wisdom and expecting puny, fallible man do our spiritual thinking for us.

1st Corinthians 1:30: - “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.”  

 

I think the following inspired counsel from the Testimony of Jesus, is a very good place to conclude this study on. It reveals three ways that the Lord makes known his will for us.

5th Testimony, p. 512: - “There are three ways in which the Lord reveals His will to us, to guide us, and to fit us to guide others. How may we know His voice from that of a stranger? How shall we distinguish it from the voice of a false shepherd? God reveals His will to us in His word, the Holy Scriptures. His voice is also revealed in His providential workings; and it will be recognized if we do not separate our souls from Him by walking in our own ways, doing according to our own wills, and following the promptings of an unsanctified heart, until the senses have become so confused that eternal things are not discerned, and the voice of Satan is so disguised that it is accepted as the voice of God. Another way in which God's voice is heard is through the appeals of His Holy Spirit, making impressions upon the heart, which will be wrought out in the character. If you are in doubt upon any subject you must first consult the Scriptures.

 

 How many of us actually follow this inspired counsel, and if in doubt on any subject, we first consult the Scriptures? Very few of us do this. Rather, we take the easy way out, and contact someone we have confidence in, and ask them for their opinion or for their understanding on the issue in question, instead of going directly to God through his Word, and prayerfully searching the inspired writings to find a godly answer to our questions.

 

We must be justified by faith in Jesus, and trust in him alone, and not keep looking to humanity or a 501c3 non-profit, tax exempt church or independent organization for spiritual help; otherwise, we will be lost!


"One who sees beneath the surface, who reads the hearts of all men, says of those who have had great light: ‘They are not afflicted and astonished because of their moral and spiritual condition.’ ‘Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before Mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.’ ‘God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie,’ ‘because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved,’ ‘but had pleasure in unrighteousness.’ Isaiah 66:3,4; 2 Thessalonians 2:11,10,12.

"The heavenly Teacher inquired: ‘What stronger delusion can beguile the mind than the pretense that you are building on the right foundation and that God accepts your works, when in reality you are working out many things according to worldly policy and are sinning against Jehovah?’...

"Who can truthfully say: ‘Our gold is tried in the fire; our garments are unspotted by the world’? I saw our Instructor pointing to the garments of so-called righteousness. Stripping them off, He laid bare the defilement beneath. Then He said to me: ‘Can you not see how they have pretentiously covered up their defilement and rottenness of character? ‘How is the faithful city become an harlot’ [Isa 1:21]! My Father's house is made a house of merchandise, a place whence the divine presence and glory have departed!’Testimonies, vol 8, p 249-250.

Does this sound like any ministers you know? 

"The ministers preach smooth things to suit carnal professors. This is just as Satan would have it. They dare not preach Jesus and the cutting truths of the Bible; for if they should, these carnal professors would not hear them. Many of them are wealthy, and must be retained in the church, although they are no more fit to be there than Satan and his angels. The religion of Jesus is made to appear popular and honorable in the eyes of the world. The people are told that those who profess religion will be more honored by the world. Very widely do such teachings differ from the teachings of Christ. His doctrine and the world could not be at peace. Those who followed him had to renounce the world. These smooth things originated with Satan and his angels. They formed the plan, and nominal professors have carried it out. Hypocrites and sinners unite with the church. Pleasing fables are taught, and readily received. But if the truth should be preached in its purity, it would soon shut out hypocrites and sinners. But there is no difference between the professed followers of Christ and the world. I saw that if the false covering could be torn off from the members of the churches, there would be revealed such iniquity, vileness and corruption, that the most diffident child of God would have no hesitancy in calling them by their right name, children of their father, the Devil; for his works they do. Jesus and all the heavenly host looked with disgust upon the scene; yet God had a message for the church that was sacred and important. If received, it would make a thorough reformation in the church, revive the living testimony that would purge out hypocrites and sinners, and bring the church again into favor with God." 1 Spiritual Gifts, pp. 127,128.

"...A high salary is paid for a talented minister to entertain and attract the people. His sermons must not touch popular sins, but be made smooth and pleasing for fashionable ears. Thus fashionable sinners are enrolled on the church-records, and fashionable sins are concealed under a pretense of godliness. God looks down upon these apostate bodies, and declares them daughters of a harlot. To secure the favor and support of the great men of earth, they have broken their solemn vows of allegiance and fidelity to the King of Heaven.  {4SP 234.1}  
     The great sin charged against Babylon is, that she "made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication." This cup of intoxication which she presents to the world, represents the false doctrines which she has accepted as the result of her unlawful connection with the great ones of the earth. Friendship with the world corrupts her faith, and in her turn she exerts a corrupting influence upon the world by teaching doctrines which are opposed to the plainest statements of the word of God.  {4SP 234.2}


AS OF MARCH 7, 2006 ALL 501c3 (non-profit or tax-exempt) CHURCHES HAVE BECOME "OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES" 

Were you aware that Constantine made the first Sunday Law March 7, 321AD. 
The Council of Nicea 325 AD = the formation of the trinity doctrine was instigated and adopted by Constantine as well. They took pagan heathen religions around them and simply gave pagan worship Biblical sounding names.

The Nicean Creed - 325 AD
One of the most important things accomplished at the Council of Nicea was the adoption of a creedal form that would guide the Church regarding theology, Christology, and the trinity. As has been mentioned, there was great debate about the use of the termhomoousias. The creed did not have 100% approval even when it was drafted. Within a short amount of time the creed came under attack, and eventually was rewritten at the Council of Constantinople in 381 AD. [Thanks to roo.bookaroo for pointing out that I had Chalcedon here...yikes!] This is the text of the original version of the creed: 

The Original Creed of 325 AD
We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of all things visible and invisible. 

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, begotten of the Father [the only-begotten; that is, of the essence of the Father, God of God], Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; 

By whom all things were made [both in heaven and on earth]; 

Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down and was incarnate and was made man; 

He suffered, and the third day he rose again, ascended into heaven; 

From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. 

And in the Holy Ghost. 

[But those who say: 'There was a time when he was not;' and 'He was not before he was made;' and 'He was made out of nothing,' or 'He is of another substance' or 'essence,' or 'The Son of God is created,' or 'changeable,' or 'alterable'—they are condemned by the holy catholic and apostolic Church.] 

At the end of the original creed was added the text above - obviously aimed at Arius. 




    
"...Babylon is said to be a harlot; and the prophet beheld her drunken with the blood of saints and martyrs. The Babylon thus described represents Rome, that apostate church which has so cruelly persecuted the followers of Christ. But Babylon the harlot is the mother of daughters who follow her example of corruption. Thus are represented those churches that cling to the doctrines and traditions of Rome and follow her worldly practices, and whose fall is announced in the second angel's message."  {4SP 233.1} 

"...The truth as it is in Jesus will have altogether a different influence upon the minds of unbelievers, from that which it has had when presented as a theory or as a controversial subject. If we do our very best to present the truth in its stirring character, crossing the opinions and ideas of others, it will be misinterpreted, misapplied, and misstated, to those who are entertaining error, in order to make it appear in an objectionable light. There are few to whom you bring the truth, who have not been drinking of the wine of Babylon. It is hard for them to comprehend the truth, therefore the necessity of teaching it as it is in Jesus..."  RH, June 3, 1890, par. 10

The whole SDA church and organization, is dead in apostasy. The SDA General Conference leadership have:

– Discarded the true principles of our historic SDA faith, changed our SDA religion, and accounted as error the fundamental principles of our faith by giving up the three angels' messages (see SDA Apostasy in Doctrine).

– They have re-organized the church into an image of a Catholic hierarchy (see SDA Apostasy in Organization).

– Introduced a system of intellectual philosophy, are using techniques of hypnotism to keep people in the church or to bring them back to church, and have brought in spiritualism and doctrines of devils to seduce our people (see SDA Apostasy in Education).

– Threatened and persecuted those who tried to stand in the way of this satanic reformation (see SDA Threats and Persecution).

– Removed God and His Holy Spirit from the church (see Battle Creek Letters, p 55-56).

– Placed their dependence upon man and united with the NCC, WCC, the ecumenical movement, and various state governments (see SDA Apostasy in Ecumenism).

– Lightly regarded the seventh-day Sabbath, and are setting aside God's Sabbath to worship the sun, and are leading our SDA people to do the same (see SDA Apostasy Regarding the Sabbath).

Thus probation has closed forever upon the corporate SDA church. She has become Babylon fallen. The foundation of the entire worldwide SDA church is not built on Christ or truth, but is built completely on error and it cannot stand. The SDA church will fall and be destroyed with a sore destruction!

"Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken them unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a Rock. And everyone that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it." Matthew 7:24-27.

The SDA church is not going through to heaven, but is destined to go down to hell! And our merciful God has even warned His people of this fact!

"Of those who boast of their light, and yet fail to walk in it, Christ says, ‘But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.And thou, Capernaum [Seventh-day Adventists, who have had great light], which art exalted unto heaven [in point of privilege], shall be brought down to hell’...‘therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by My name, wherein ye trust, and unto this place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh. And I will cast you out of My sight...’" Review and Herald, August 1, 1893 (brackets by Sister White).

So the SDA corporate ship is not going through to the port of heaven, but will be destroyed before she reaches that harbor! Thus all on board the SDA ship, who refuse to separate from her, will go down into the black depths of death. Yet many SDA's have been brainwashed to believe otherwise, and some may even now be saying, "The ship will go through."

But our gracious God has sent abundant warnings to His SDA people, so that they would not be brainwashed into believing this fatal deception.

"A very small leak will sink a ship." Testimonies, vol 8, p 158.

"...one poor timber will sink a ship..." Testimonies, vol 4, p 606.

There is not just one leak, or one poor timber in the SDA church today. There are so many leaks and so many poor timbers that it is impossible to count them. In fact, God had already told His people that if men take the control of the church away from Christ, then their SDA ship would surely sink!

"Those who are destitute of heavenly wisdom, destitute of living power with God, are not competent to steer the gospel ship amid icebergs and tempests. The church is passing through severe conflicts, but in her peril many would trust her to hands that will surely wreck her." Testimonies, vol 5, p 104-105.

The SDA church leadership have definitely cast Christ out of the church (see Notebook Leaflets, p 99; Testimonies, vol 8, p 250), and they have also shut, locked, bolted, and barred the door so that the Holy Spirit can not enter either (see Battle Creek Letters, p 55-56). Thus this Christ-less man-powered SDA corporate ship is destined to go down to destruction, and all who refuse to separate from this deceptive and spurious ship will go down with her. And God even sent warnings of this possibility!


"Are we hoping to see the whole church revived? That time will NEVER come. There are persons in the church who are not converted, and who will not unite in earnest, prevailing prayer. We must enter upon the work individuallyWe must pray more, and talk less."- Last Day Events, p. 195.2  (1887).

"True value is shown far more by works than by assertions, or by tearing one another down to build self up. The knowledge, the skill, the fidelity will be exerting its influence, and will speak louder than words possibly can. Merit and moral worth cannot be hidden. They will appear, and the less one seeks to make them appear in words, the better it will be for him. If a man extols his knowledge in order to stand in the highest place when that knowledge is tested, if it is not all that he represented it to be, he will be left in a lower place than if he had kept silent and let his works praise him." THE REVIEW AND HERALD, June 28, 1887

Like the dwellers in the vale of Sodom  the people are dreaming of prosperity and peace. "Escape for thy life," is the warning from the angels of God; but other voices are heard saying, "Be not excited; there is no cause for alarm." The multitudes cry, "Peace and safety," while Heaven declares that swift destruction is about to come upon the transgressor. On the night prior to their destruction, the cities of the plain rioted in pleasure and derided the fears and warnings of the messenger of God; but those scoffers perished in the flames; that very night the door of mercy was forever closed to the wicked, careless inhabitants of Sodom. God will not always be mocked; He will not long be trifled with. "Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it." Isaiah 13:9. The great mass of the world will reject God's mercy, and will be overwhelmed in swift and irretrievable ruin. But those who heed the warning shall dwell "in the secret place of the Most High," and "abide under the shadow of the Almighty." His truth shall be their shield and buckler. For them is the promise, "With long life will I satisfy him, and show him My salvation." Psalm 91:1, 4, 16.  -Patriarchs and Prophets p 167.1 & 2

"A multitude of voices were heard crying: “Let us depart hence.” The Great Controversy, p. 29.3

"Souls that were scattered all through the religious bodies answered to the call, and the precious were hurried out of the doomed churches, as Lot was hurried out of Sodom before her destruction. God's people were strengthened by the excellent glory which rested upon them in rich abundance and prepared them to endure the hour of temptation. I heard everywhere a multitude of voices saying, 'Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.' "Early Writings, pp. 277-279. 

Only those who are living up to the light they have will receive greater light. Unless we are daily advancing in the exemplification of the active Christian virtues, we shall not recognise the manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain. It may be falling on hearts all around us, but we shall not discern or receive it.--TM 507 (1897).

"Those who make no decided effort, but simply wait for the Holy Spirit to compel them to action, will perish in darkness. You are not to sit still and do nothing in the work of God." -ChS 228 (1903).

"The Lord does not leave the ship one moment to be steered by ignorant pilots. We may receive our orders from the Captain of our salvation."-- Review and Herald, March 25, 1890.

"To the end of time the presence of the Spirit is to abide with the true church."--AA 54, 55 (1911).

"The two classes of watchers represent the two classes who profess to be waiting for their Lord. They are called virgins because they profess a pure faith." {COL 406.3} 

"The plain straight testimony must live in the church, or the curse of God will rest upon His people as surely as it did upon ancient Israel because of their sins. God holds His people, as a body [corporately], responsible for the sins existing in individuals among them." Testimonies, Vol. 3, p. 269.

"The names of those who sin and refuse to repent should not be retained on the church books, lest the saints be held accountable for their evil deeds. Those who pursue a course of transgression should be visited and labored with, and if they then refuse to repent, they should be separated from church fellowship, in accordance with the rules laid down in the Word of God." {11MR 208.3}

"The Sabbath...is the sign of the power of Christ." Desire of Ages, p. 283.4

"As the Jews departed from God, and failed to make the righteousness of Christ their own by faith, the Sabbath lost its significance to them. Satan was seeking to exalt himself and to draw men away from Christ, and he worked to pervert the Sabbath, because it is the sign of the power of Christ. The Jewish leaders accomplished the will of Satan by surrounding God's rest day with burdensome requirements. In the days of Christ the Sabbath had become so perverted that its observance reflected the character of selfish and arbitrary men rather than the character of the loving heavenly Father. The rabbis virtually represented God as giving laws which it was impossible for men to obey. They led the people to look upon God as a tyrant, and to think that the observance of the Sabbath, as He required it, made men hard-hearted and cruel. It was the work of Christ to clear away these misconceptions. Although the rabbis followed Him with merciless hostility, He did not even appear to conform to their requirements, but went straight forward, keeping the Sabbath according to the law of God." The Desire of Ages, p. 283.4

Change Leaders: "There is manifested on the part of men in responsible positions an unwillingness to confess where they have been in the wrong and their neglect is working disaster, not only to themselves, but to the churches....You will be left to make mistakes of a similar character, you will continue to lack wisdom, and will call sin righteousness and righteousness sin. The multitude of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will change leaders, and not know that you have done so." E.G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 2, 448.

Change Leaders: "Men in positions of responsibility are in danger of changing leaders. This I know, for it has been plainly revealed to me." E.G. White, Series B, #2, p. 48.

Change Leaders: "Men who might have stood in clear light, doing valiant service as ministers of the gospel and medical missionaries, have been accepting false theories and sophistries which originated with the father of lies, and yet they do not realize that they have changed." E.G. White, Special Testimonies, Series B, #7, p. 13-16, November 20, 1905.

Change Leaders: "Satan will set up his hellish banner right in your homes, and you will be so blinded to the real nature of his deceptions that you reverence it as the banner of Christ." E.G. White, The 1888 Materials, p. 505.

Change Leaders: "They will not recognize him [Satan] as their enemy, that old serpent, but they will consider him a FRIEND, one who is doing a good work."Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 294.

Change Leaders: Satan has laid his plans to undermine our faith in the history of the cause and work of God. I am deeply in earnest as I write this. Satan is working with men in prominent positions to sweep away the foundation of our faith. Shall we allow this to be done, brethren?" E.G. White, Review and Herald, Nov. 19, 1903.

Change Leaders if Mistakes are not Admitted and Changed: "If when the Lord reveals your errors you do not repent or make confession, his providence will bring you over the ground again and again. You will be left to make mistakes of a similar character, you will continue to lack wisdom, and will call sin righteousness, and righteousness sin. The multitude of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will CHANGE LEADERS, AND NOT KNOW THAT YOU HAVE DONE SO." E.G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 2, p. 449.

Change Leaders: "Satan has COME IN with his specious temptations, and has led the professed followers of Christ away from the [PILOT] Leader (Christ), classing them with the foolish virgins." Testimonies to Ministers, p. 130.

Change Leaders: "Refusing to follow in the path of obedience, they transferred their allegiance to Satan. The enemy rejoiced in his success in effacing the divine image from the minds of the people that God had chosen as His representatives. Through [ECUMENICAL] intermarriage with idolaters and CONSTANT ASSOCIATION WITH THEM [Isa. 8:9-20], Satan brought about that for which he had long been working,--a national apostasy." Fundamentals to Christian Education,p. 449.


Ellen White has over 100 statements paralleling us to the Jews.

Ezekiel 9. Ellen White said that it would be literally fulfilled beginning at His Sanctuary, the people who had been privileged with much light: "Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel. These words will be literally fulfilled yet the time is passing, and the people are asleep. They refuse to humble their souls and to be converted. Not a great while longer will the Lord bear with the people who have such great and important truths revealed to them, but who refuse to bring these truths into their individual experience. The time is short. God is calling will YOU hear? Will YOU receive His message? Will YOU be converted before it is too late? Soon, very soon, every case will be decided for eternity. Letter 106, 1909, pp. 2, 3, 5, 7. (To "The churches in Oakland and Berkeley, September 26, 1909.)" E. G. White Manuscript Releases Volume One, p. 260.

“The history of the early experiences in the message will be a power to withstand the masterly ingenuity of Satan's deceptions.” EGW, Letter 99, 1905.

As God has shown me in holy vision the travels of the Advent people to the Holy City, and the rich reward to be given thosewho wait the return of their Lord from the wedding, it may be my duty to give you a short sketch of what God has revealed to me. The dear saints have got many trials to pass through. But our light afflictions which are but for a moment worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we look not at the things which are seen, for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. I have tried to bring back a good report, & a few grapes from the heavenly Canaan, for which many would stone me, as the congregation bade stone Caleb and Joshua for their report, (Numbers 14:10.) But I declare to you, my brother in the Lord, it is a goodly land, and we are well able to go up and possess it.

Ship Drifting at Sea Without Chart or Compass (2SM 128)

Ship Drifting at Sea Without Chart or Compass: "The facts concerning the real condition of the professed people of God, speak more loudly than their profession, and make it evident that some power has cut the cable that anchored them to the Eternal Rock, and that they are drifting away to sea, without chart or compass." E.G. White, Selected Messages, vol. 2, p. 128, (Review and Herald, Vol. 2, p. 231). (Also see Fundamentals of Christian Education, p. 348).

"It is through obedience to the truth that we are to be sanctified" and unified. "It should be our constant aim to reach this state of unity;  but to do this we are not to sacrifice one principle of truth." Ellen G. White, The Signs of the Times, May 12, 1881. (emphasis supplied).

Ps. 83:5 and Rev. 17:14 and the quotes from Ellen White that maybe you have read lately from Vol 8 of the Testimonies page 42. "This is the scene that is presented to me. But the church must and will fight against seen and unseen foes. Satan's agencies in human form are on the ground. Men have confederated to oppose the Lord of hosts. These confederacies will continue until Christ shall leave His place of intercession before the mercy seat and shall put on the garments of vengeance. Satanic agencies are in every city, busily organizing into parties those opposed to the law of God. Professed saints and avowed unbelievers take their stand with these parties. This is no time for the people of God to be weaklings. We cannot afford to be off our guard for one moment" {8T 42.2}

"Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:" Revelation 3:17

"I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews (professed Adventists), and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan." Revelation 2:9

"I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door (door curtain is Jesus Christ that we enter into), and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, (also known as Capernaum by EGW) which say they are Jews (Adventists), and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee." Revelation 3:8-9 (See also  Revelation 2:9-10, 3:9)

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?  Matthew 23:27-33.

Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.   John 8:39-47.

What "church" in particular does “the Synagogue of Satan” refer to here? What church would even "admit" they were the Synagogue of Satan?

"You think, that those who worship before the saint’s feet, (Revelation 3:9), will at last be saved. Here I must differ with you; for God shew me that this class were professed Adventists, who had fallen away, and “crucified to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” And in the “hour of temptation,” which is yet to come, to show out every one’s true character, they will know that they are forever lost; and overwhelmed with anguish of spirit, they will bow at the saint’s feet."  A Word to the Little Flock, p. 12.2,  {WLF 12.2}  

Who does Ellen White say the Synagogue of Satan is? God showed Ellen White that this class of people were “professed Adventists, who had fallen away, and “crucified to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” (A Word to the Little Flock, p. 12.2). The Laodicean church is described in the church of Philadelphia as the "synagogue of Satan".  The professed Adventist church.  Now, those who have kept the Sabbath, but given it up, worship at the feet of the Saints, in fulfillment of the letter to the church of Philadelphia. 
"they will bow at the saint’s feet." A Word to the Little Flock, p. 12.2
"They are Satan's faithful servants, notwithstanding they have assumed another name." Early Writings, 273-274.
"Then it was that the synagoge of Satan ...worshipped at our feet." Early Writings p. 15

Galatians 4:16 "Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?"

“Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. He said to them, ‘Listen to this dream I had: We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.’ His brothers said to him, ‘Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?’ And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.” Genesis 37:5-8 NIV
 God's Spirit filled historic Adventist doctrine believers/obeying people are the straight sheaf represented in Joseph's dream; those who believe exactly as did our early SDA pioneers from 1844-1894. The professed Adventists in name only are the ones who represent the bowing sheaf's in Joseph's dream, that God makes "to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee." Revelation 3:9 

“The mighty shaking has commenced (written in 1847) and will go on, and all will be shaken out who are not willing to take a bold and unyielding stand for the truth, and to sacrifice for God and His cause.” (Ellen White A Word to the Little Flock, p. 31,- 1847)


“I asked the meaning of the shaking I had seen. I was shown that it would be caused by the straight testimony called forth by the counsel of the true Witness to the Laodiceans..” (Spiritual Gifts, vol. 1, pp. 184, 185)

Who are the Laodiceans?

“The message to the Laodiceans is applicable to SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS who have great light and have not walked in the light.” (2 Selected Messages p. 66)

Laodicea does not represent the true Adventists, it represents Adventists who have not walked in the light, nominal Adventists, or professed Adventists. Joseph Bates once wrote this plainly…

“First part, SARDIS, the nominal church or Babylon. Second part, Laodicea, the nominal Adventist. Third part, Philadelphia, the only true church of God on earth, for they ask to be translated to the city of God. Rev.iii,12; Heb.xii,22–24. In the name of Jesus, I exhort you again to flee from the Laodiceans, as from Sodom and Gomorrah. Their teachings are false and delusive; and lead to utter destruction. Death! DEATH!! eternal DEATH!!! is on their track. Remember Lot’s wife.” JOSEPH BATES. Fairhaven, Mass., Nov. 10, 1850. (The Adventist Review and Sabbath Herald, November 1850)

We are told straightly Laodicea represents nominal Adventists, or professed Adventists. They say they are Adventists and are not. Having a name on your organization makes them Adventist as much as calling yourself a Jew means you are a real Jew, or saying you are Abraham’s seed, but your real father is the devil. The true Adventist is not one which has a baptismal certificate which says he is a Seventh-day Adventist, but rather the true Adventist is one which is one inwardly, in the heart, in the spirit, whose praise is not of men, but of God. (See Rom 2:28, 29).  

It is in this period that the wicked will bow at the saints' feet will take place (Rev. 3:9). Ellen White referred to this group when she wrote, "...In the "hour of temptation," which is yet to come, to show out every one's true character, they will know that they are forever lost; and overwhelmed with anguish of spirit, they will bow at the saints' feet." [Word to the Little Flock, 12.2] 

"Then it was that the synagogue of Satan knew that God had loved us who could wash one another’s feet, and salute the holy brethren with a holy kiss, and they worshipped at our feet. Soon our eyes were drawn to the East, for a small black cloud had appeared about half as large as a man’s hand, which we all knew was the Sign of the Son of Man." DS January 24, 1846, par. 1

"No language can express the longing which the disobedient and disloyal feel for that which they have lost forever—eternal life. Men whom the world has worshiped for their talents and eloquence now see these things in their true light. They realize what they have forfeited by transgression, and they fall at the feet of those whose fidelity they have despised and derided, and confess that God has loved them." The Great Controversy, p. 655.3

"The 144,000 were all sealed and perfectly united. On their foreheads were the words God, New Jerusalem, and a glorious star containing Jesus’ new name. At our happy, holy state the wicked were enraged, and would rush violently up to lay hands on us to thrust us into prison, when we would stretch forth the hand in the name of the Lord, and they would fall helpless to the ground. Then it was that the synagogue of Satan knew that God had loved us, who could wash one another’s feet, and salute the brethren with a holy kiss, and they worshiped at our feet." Testimonies for the Church Volume 1, p. 59.2


Isaiah 1 

King James Version (KJV)

1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the Lord hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.

4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

5 Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.

7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

9
 Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as 
Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

10 Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.


"I saw that since the second angel proclaimed the fall of the churches, they have been growing more and more corrupt. They bear the name of being Christ’s followers (General Conference of Seventh Day Adventists); yet it is impossible to distinguish them from the world. Ministers take their texts from the Word of God, but preach smooth things. To this the natural heart feels no objection. It is only the spirit and power of the truth and the salvation of Christ that are hateful to the carnal heart. There is nothing in the popular ministry that stirs the wrath of Satan, makes the sinner tremble, or applies to the heart and conscience the fearful realities of a judgment soon to come. Wicked men are generally pleased with a form of piety without true godliness, and they will aid and support such a religion." EARLY WRITINGS, PAGE 273

"The sayings and doings of men are dwelt upon instead of the plain, cutting truths of the Word of God. The spirit and friendship of the world are at enmity with God. When the truth in its simplicity and strength, as it is in Jesus, is brought to bear against the spirit of the world, it at once awakens the spirit of persecution. Very many who profess to be Christians have not known God. The natural heart has not been changed, and the carnal mind remains at enmity with God. They are Satan’s faithful servants, notwithstanding they have assumed another name.”

I saw that since Jesus left the holy place of the heavenly sanctuary and entered within the second veil, the churches have been filling up with every unclean and hateful bird. I saw great iniquity and vileness in the churches; yet their members profess to be Christians. Their profession, their prayers, and their exhortations are an abomination in the sight of God. Said the angel, “God will not dwell in their assemblies. Selfishness, fraud, and deceit are practiced by them without the reprovings of conscience. And over all these evil traits they throw the cloak of religion.” I was shown the pride of the nominal churches. God is not in their thoughts; their carnal minds dwell upon themselves; they decorate their poor mortal bodies, and then look upon themselves with satisfaction and pleasure. Jesus and the angels look upon them in anger. Said the angel, “Their sins and pride have reached unto heaven. Their portion is prepared. Justice and judgment have slumbered long, but will soon awake. Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.” The fearful threatenings of the third angel are to be realized, and all the wicked are to drink of the wrath of God. An innumerable host of evil angels are spreading over the whole land and crowding the churches. These agents of Satan look upon the religious bodies with exultation, for the cloak of religion covers the greatest crime and iniquity.

All heaven beholds with indignation human beings, the workmanship of God, reduced by their fellow men to the lowest depths of degradation and placed on a level with the brute creation. Professed followers of that dear Saviour whose compassion was ever moved at the sight of human woe, heartily engage in this enormous and grievous sin, and deal in slaves and souls of men. Human agony is carried from place to place and bought and sold. Angels have recorded it all; it is written in the book. The tears of the pious bondmen and bondwomen, of fathers, mothers, and children, brothers and sisters, are all bottled up in heaven. God will restrain His anger but little longer. His wrath burns against this nation and especially against the religious bodies that have sanctioned this terrible traffic and have themselves engaged in it. Such injustice, such oppression, such sufferings, are looked upon with heartless indifference by many professed followers of the meek and lowly Jesus. And many of them can themselves inflict, with hateful satisfaction, all this indescribable agony; and yet they dare to worship God. It is solemn mockery; Satan exults over it and reproaches Jesus and His angels with such inconsistency, saying, with hellish triumph, “Such are Christ’s followers!”

These professed Christians read of the sufferings of the martyrs, and tears course down their cheeks. They wonder that men could ever become so hardened as to practice such cruelty toward their fellow men. Yet those who think and speak thus are at the same time holding human beings in slavery. And this is not all; they sever the ties of nature and cruelly oppress their fellow men. They can inflict most inhuman torture with the same relentless cruelty manifested by papists and heathen toward Christ’s followers. Said the angel, “It will be more tolerable for the heathen and for papists in the day of the execution of God’s judgment than for such men.” The cries of the oppressed have reached unto heaven, and angels stand amazed at the untold, agonizing sufferings which man, formed in the image of his Maker, causes his fellow man. Said the angel, “The names of the oppressors are written in blood, crossed with stripes, and flooded with agonizing, burning tears of suffering. God’s anger will not cease until He has caused this land of light to drink the dregs of the cup of His fury, until He has rewarded unto Babylon double. Reward her even as she rewarded you, double unto her double according to her works; in the cup which she hath filled, fill to her double.”

I saw that the slave master [see appendix.] will have to answer for the soul of his slave whom he has kept in ignorance; and the sins of the slave will be visited upon the master. God cannot take to heaven the slave who has been kept in ignorance and degradation, knowing nothing of God or the Bible, fearing nothing but his master’s lash, and holding a lower position than the brutes. But He does the best thing for him that a compassionate God can do. He permits him to be as if he had not been, while the master must endure the seven last plagues and then come up in the second resurrection and suffer the second, most awful death. Then the justice of God will be satisfied." EARLY WRITINGS, PAGE 274-276


Daniel was also a good example of instant obedience, another great spiritual lesson we can learn from this great prophet. It is by sinful indulgence that men give Satan access to their minds, and they go from one stage of wickedness to another. The rejection of light darkens the mind and hardens the heart, so that it is easier for them to take the next step in sin and to reject still clearer light, until at last their habits of wrongdoing become fixed. Sin ceases to appear sinful to them. He who faithfully preaches God's word, thereby condemning their sins, too often incurs their hatred. Unwilling to endure the pain and sacrifice necessary to reform, they turn upon the Lord's servant and denounce his reproofs as uncalled for and severe. Like Korah, they declare that the people are not at fault; it is the reprover that causes all the trouble. And soothing their consciences with this deception, the jealous and disaffected combine to sow discord in the church and weaken the hands of those who would build it up.

Every advance made by those whom God has called to lead in His work has excited suspicion; every act has been misrepresented by the jealous and faultfinding. Thus it was in the time of Luther, of the Wesleys and other reformers. Thus it is today. — Patriarchs and Prophets, pp. 403-404.

The facts relative to Korah and his company, who rebelled against Moses and Aaron, and against Jehovah, are recorded for a warning to God's people, especially those who live upon the earth near the close of time. Satan has led persons to imitate the example of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, in raising insurrection among the people of God.  —The Spirit of Prophecy, Vol. 1, pp. 306-307. 

Isaiah 60:14 The sons also of them that afflicted you shall come bending low unto you; and all they that despised you shall bow themselves down at the soles of your feet; and they shall call you, The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

Isaiah 45:14 This is what the LORD says: "The products of Egypt and the merchandise of Cush, and those tall Sabeans--they will come over to you and will be yours; they will trudge behind you, coming over to you in chains. They will bow down before you and plead with you, saying, 'Surely God is with you, and there is no other; there is no other god.'"

Genesis 42:6 Now Joseph was the governor of the land, the one who sold grain to all its people. So when Joseph's brothers arrived, they bowed down to him with their faces to the ground.

Genesis 27:29 May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may the sons of your mother bow down to you. May those who curse you be cursed and those who bless you be blessed."

Isaiah 14:1 The LORD will have compassion on Jacob; once again he will choose Israel and will settle them in their own land. Aliens will join them and unite with the house of Jacob.

Isaiah 1:26 I will restore your judges as in days of old, your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward YOU will be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City."

Hebrews 12:22 But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly,

Psalm 46:4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.

1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

Acts 20:28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.Acts 20:29 I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. 

God's Spirit filled people the "little band", "little flock", "humble minority", "obscure people" or the "few" will be "sold/betrayed" to "traders" or traitors - by by their "former brethren" who are "professed" "in name only" who "say" they are GC SDA's to the image of the beast, the United States government power. (this is soon to come) The lamblike beast that speaks as a dragon, the United States of America, persecutes/kills/beheads those who are 7th day Sabbath-keepers and true God worshipers (all except the 144,000 who are elite special taskforce leaders for God's cause)...historic doctrine Bible believing Adventists. They will be betrayed by their former brethren. 

"And thou, Capernaum [Seventh-day Adventists, who have had great light], which art exalted unto heaven [in point of privilege], shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee." E. G. White, Review and Herald Articles, vol. 3, p. 69, col. 3.

We DID NOT add the bracketed portions of the above statement. It is quoted just as it was written by Ellen White. Please not that Ellen White compares the SDA church to a corporate city Capernaum. By this designation she can only mean the entire corporate church and not "individuals" in that church. Ezekiel 5:1-4, agrees with Ellen White's prognosis, wherein three-thirds, or the entire church is destroyed after a remnant escapes. Add to this the fact that Ellen White says that another literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 will begin at His Sanctuary-- the people who had great light, Testimonies, vol. 5, 211, and you have a serious situation. You have a modern-day counterpart to the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., and indeed, Ellen White said that catastrophe was a prefigure type of another to come, The Great Controversy, 1911 edition, p. 25.

God's People are Identified as Encircled with a Rainbow of God's favor like Joseph's coat of many colors showed the favor of Jacob his Father:

  • "obscure people" —Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 1. 
  •  “humble minority” —Testimony Treasures Volume 2, Page 150
  • "the little band of believers" —Life Sketches Of James White And Ellen G. White 1888, Page 181
    "little companies" ....Satan himself, appearing as an Angel of Light, will declare that the little companies standing in defiance of the
  • Sunday law are causing the terrible judgments to continue, and therefore, ought not to be tolerated.
“When the test comes, it will be clearly shown what the mark of the beast is. It is the keeping of Sunday.” {7BC 980}
     
  • "little flock" —Christian Experience And Teachings Of Ellen G. White, Page 54 and "Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom."  —Luke 12:32
  • "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it." —Matthew 7:14
Notice it says there are "FEW" and that it's a "LITTLE FLOCK" of followers that actually get to go to Heaven and inherit the Kingdom of GOD.




God’s people, the Remnant who are striving to be overcomers are surrounded by God’s glory, like a coat of many colors. Encircled by a rainbow of blended mercy and justice, God’s people are given a coat of many colors and divine influences as a sign of God’s favor. 


"It will be urged that the few who stand in opposition to an institution of the church and a law of the state, ought not to be tolerated; that it is better for them to suffer than for whole nations to be thrown into confusion and lawlessness. The same argument eighteen hundred years ago was brought against Christ by the "rulers of the people." . . . This argument will appear conclusive."--GC 615 (1911).  {LDE 257.1} 

Joseph was given a coat of many colors as a sign of his Father’s favor. God’s GLORY looks like a rainbow and is given to His remnant people today as a sign of God’s favor and a shield. Psalm 3:3


 “All around him was a glowing halo, like a rainbow shining in the clouds on a rainy day. THIS IS WHAT THE GLORY OF THE LORD LOOKED LIKE to me. When I saw it, I fell face down on the ground, and I heard someone's voice speaking to me.” (NLT) Ezekiel 1:28  “And I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the East. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory.” Ezekiel 43:2 “But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.” Numbers 14:21

The rainbow of promised glory encircling the remnant who are striving to overcome sin is an everlasting testimony that "God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3: 16). It testifies to the universe that God will never forsake His people in their struggle with evil. It is an assurance to us of strength and protection as long as the throne itself shall endure. The rainbow of promise is an assurance to every humble, contrite, believing soul, that his life is one with Christ, and that Christ is one with God. The wrath of God will not fall upon one soul that seeks refuge in Him. God Himself has declared, "When I see the blood, I will pass over you." "The bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant" (Ex. 12: 13; Gen. 9: 16).

Genesis 49:22-26 (KJV) "Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:) Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb: The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren."

In the early days of Adventism, when the expectation was that the end of time was very near, Ellen White had this revelation: 

I saw the nominal (nominal=in name only who "say" they are "Adventists" but lie and are not) church and nominal Adventists, like Judas, would betray us to the Catholics to obtain their influence to come against the truth. The saints then will be an obscure people, little known to the Catholics; but the churches and nominal Adventists who know of our faith and customs (for they hated us on account of the Sabbath, for they could not refute it) will betray the saints and report them to the Catholics as those who disregard the institutions of the people; that is, that they keep the Sabbath and disregard Sunday.  —Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 1.

“When the test comes, it will be clearly shown what the mark of the beast is. It is the keeping of Sunday.” {7BC 980}

Think about it for a minute - How could a church that is second only to the Catholic church in size worldwide be an "obscure people" and "little known" people" today in the end of time? Not happening. People must follow Rev 18:4 to be saved out of the Modern GC-SDA church. 

It is clear from this passage found in the "Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 1"  that the "nominal church" can only be the superficially genuine but apostate protestant church and that "nominal Adventists" are the superficial, conservative Adventists that will unite with mainstream Christianity. 

When will this separation take place? In Ellen White's eschatology, all these events transpire during the time of the great shaking of the church (the shaking from straight testimony started in 1844), and goes on until just before the end of the world. One revelation that Ellen White specified very clearly is that we are already in the time for "the removal of those things that are being shaken so that the things which cannot be shaken may remain" (Hebrews 12:25-27).


Who has had more light and has fallen away by rejecting the truth about God that was setup by God in the beginning of the Advent movement by the historical SDA’s? Who has changed their religion by changing God’s? Sadly, modern Seventh-Day Adventist’s.

Every power that is antagonistic to truth is strengthening.—The Southern Watchman, October 31, 1905.

The work which the church has failed to do in a time of peace and prosperity, she will have to do in a terrible crisis, under most discouraging, forbidding, circumstances. The warnings that worldly conformity has silenced or withheld, must be given under the fiercest opposition from enemies of the faith. And at that time the superficial, conservative class, whose influence has steadily retarded the progress of the work, will renounce the faith, and take their stand with its avowed enemies, toward whom their sympathies have long been tending. These apostates will then manifest the most bitter enmity, doing all in their power to oppress and malign their former brethren, and to excite indignation against them. This day is just before us. The members of the church will individually be tested and proved. They will be placed in circumstances where they will be forced to bear witness for the truth. Many will be called to speak before councils and in courts of justice, perhaps separately and alone. The experience which would have helped them in this emergency they have neglected to obtain, and their souls are burdened with remorse for wasted opportunities and neglected privileges.—Testimonies for the Church 5:463.

The Protestant world today see in the little company keeping the Sabbath a Mordecai in the gate. His character and conduct, expressing reverence for the law of God, are a constant rebuke to those who have cast off the fear of the Lord, and are trampling upon His Sabbath; the unwelcome intruder must by some means be put out of the way.—Testimonies for the Church 5:450.

Satan will excite indignation against the humble minority who conscientiously refuse to accept popular customs and traditions. Men of position and reputation will join with the lawless and the vile to take counsel against the people of God. Wealth, genius, education, will combine to cover them with contempt. Persecuting rulers, ministers, and church members will conspire against them. With voice and pen, by boasts, threats, and ridicule, they will seek to overthrow their faith. By false representations and angry appeals, they will stir up the passions of the people. Not having a “Thus saith the Scriptures” to bring against the advocates of the Bible Sabbath, they will resort to oppressive enactments to supply the lack. To secure popularity and patronage, legislators will yield to the demand for a Sunday law.... On this battlefield comes the last great conflict of the controversy between truth and error.—Testimonies for the Church 5:450, 451.

Persecution Essential

When they were scattered by persecution, they went forth filled with missionary zeal. They realized the responsibility of their mission. They knew that they held in their hands the bread of life for a famishing world; and they were constrained by the love of Christ to break this bread to all who were in need.—The Acts of the Apostles, 106.

God means that testing truth shall be brought to the front, and become a subject of examination and discussion, even if it is through the contempt placed upon it. The minds of the people must be agitated. Every controversy, every reproach, every slander, will be God’s means of provoking inquiry, and awakening minds that otherwise would slumber.—Testimonies for the Church 5:453.

Why Persecution Slumbers

The apostle Paul declares that “all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” Why is it, then, that persecution seems in a great degree to slumber? The only reason is, that the church has conformed to the world’s standard, and therefore awakens no opposition. The religion which is current in our day is not of the pure and holy character that marked the Christian faith in the days of Christ and His apostles. It is only because of the spirit of compromise with sin, because the great truths of the Word of God are so indifferently regarded, because there is so little vital godliness in the church, that Christianity is apparently so popular with the world. Let there be a revival of faith and power of the early church, and the spirit of persecution will be revived, and the fires of persecution will be rekindled.—The Great Controversy, 48.

Threefold Persecuting Union

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. The Protestants of the United States will be foremost in stretching their hands across the gulf to grasp the hand of Spiritualism; they will reach over the abyss to clasp hands with the Roman power; and under the influence of this threefold union, this country will follow in the steps of Rome in trampling on the rights of conscience.—The Great Controversy, 588.

The Last Act in the Drama

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 universal, God 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 7:141.

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 popery; it will be nothing else than giving life to the tyranny which has long been eagerly watching its opportunity to spring again into active despotism.—Testimonies for the Church 5:712.

By the decree of enforcing the institution of the Papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with Spiritualism, 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, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan, and that the end is near.—Testimonies for the Church 5:451.

The time is not far distant, when, like the early disciples, we shall be forced to seek a refuge in desolate and solitary places. As the siege of Jerusalem by the Roman armies was the signal for flight to the Judean Christians, so the assumption of power on the part of our nation, in the decree enforcing the papal sabbath, will be a warning to us. It will then be time to leave the large cities, preparatory to leaving the smaller ones for retired homes in secluded places among the mountains.—Testimonies for the Church 5:464, 465.

Many With Blinded Eyes

There are many, even of those engaged in this movement for Sunday enforcement, who are blinded to the results which will follow this action. They do not see that they are striking directly against religious liberty. There are many who have never understood the claims of the Bible Sabbath, and the false foundation upon which the Sunday institution rests.—Testimonies for the Church 5:711.

Responsibilities and Duties of God’s People

The banner of truth and religious liberty held aloft by the founders of the gospel church and by God’s witnesses during the centuries that have passed since then, has, in this last conflict, been committed to our hands. The responsibility for this great gift rests with those whom God has blessed with a knowledge of His Word. We are to receive this Word as a supreme authority. We are to recognize human government as an ordinance of divine appointment, and teach obedience to it as a sacred duty, within its legitimate sphere. But when its claims conflict with the claims of God, we must obey God rather than men. God’s word must be recognized as above all human legislation. A “Thus saith the Lord” is not to be set aside for a “Thus saith the church” or a “Thus saith the state.” The crown of Christ is to be lifted above the diadems of earthly potentates.—The Acts of the Apostles, 68, 69.

We as a people have not accomplished the work which God has committed to us. We are not ready for the issue to which the enforcement of the Sunday law will bring us. It is our duty, as we see the signs of approaching peril, to arouse to action. Let none sit in calm expectation of the evil, comforting themselves with the belief that this work must go on because prophecy has foretold it, and that the Lord will shelter his people. We are not doing the will of God if we sit in quietude, doing nothing to preserve liberty of conscience. Fervent, effectual prayer should be ascending to heaven that this calamity may be deferred until we can accomplish the work which has so long been neglected. Let there be more earnest prayer; and then let us work in harmony with our prayers.—Testimonies for the Church 5:713, 714.

It is our duty to do all in our power to avert the threatened danger. We should endeavor to disarm prejudice by placing ourselves in a proper light before the people. We should bring before them the real question at issue, thus interposing the most effectual protest against measures to restrict liberty of conscience.—Testimonies for the Church 5:452.

When God has given us light showing the dangers before us, how can we stand clear in His sight if we neglect to put forth every effort in our power to bring it before the people? Can we be content to leave them to meet this momentous issue unwarned?—Testimonies for the Church 5:712.


"Jesus gathered the little band close about Him, and kneeling in the midst of them and laying His hands on their heads, offered a prayer dedicating them to His sacred work."  From Heaven With Love, p. 196.3 

“The men whom God raised up [1844 era] were diligent searchers of the Scriptures. And those who today claim to have light, and who contradict the teaching of God’s ordained messengers, who were working under the Holy Spirit’s guidance, those who get up new theories, which remove the pillars of our faith, are not doing the will of God, but are bringing in fallacies of their own invention, which, if received, will cut the church away from the anchorage of truth, and set them drifting, drifting, to where they will receive any sophistries that may arise.”—MS 75, 1905 Ellen White.

“The Lord shows that there is something better for his people than mere outward worship. He
demands of them a pure and undefiled religion. The gold he bids them buy (buy=to zealously repent) of him is the gold of character. The eyesalve is obtained by earnest seeking of the Lord. We are to come to God
confessing our sins and humbling our hearts before him. If ever there was a people who needed to
pray most earnestly to God, if ever there was a people who needed to strip themselves of everything
that is offensive to him, it is this people who profess to keep the commandments of God and to have
the faith of Jesus." GCB June 6, 1909, par. 4

Who today rashly denies the light behind them and says that it was NOT God that had led them out so
far? (“Others denied the light behind them, and said that it was NOT God that had led them out so far.”)

The bright light set up BEHIND them, is the foundational doctrines of historical Adventism, setup in
the beginning of the SDA people of God. This is the bright light that shines all along the path until we
reach the city of GOD in Heaven, included the correct doctrinal truth about God and His Son:

“They had a bright light set up BEHIND them at the beginning of the path, which an angel told
me was the “midnight cry.” This light shone all along the path, and gave light for their feet, so
that they might not stumble.” LIFE SKETCHES OF ELLEN G. WHITE, PAGE 64

How you can help bring our Advent Movement back to a knowledge of, and obedience to,
the historic beliefs and standards given us by the God of heaven. Here is how it can be done!

See this "Bringing it back" by Vance Ferrell. Bro. Ferrell does not believe in the single being "God" of our early pioneers (Vance believes in 3 trinity gods like the modern SDA church or similar to it) or coming out from apostasy, but he does have a lot of other things right that need to be corrected in our lives. Worth reading in PDF here.

Satan "knew that if he could only lead Israel to forget God, and to ‘walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them,’ they would ‘surely perish.’ Deuteronomy 8:19.”—Prophets and Kings, 296. Modern Adventism has forsaken the only God of historic Adventism and has now adopted the trinity of gods like the other churches around them. Sound familiar to the Israelites? Forsaking the God of their Fathers? Modern Adventism has forsaken the God of historic Adventism also. What has been will be again. Ellen White's pen warns us today, "The GREAT APOSTASY, which is DEVELOPING and INCREASING and waxing stronger, and WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout." (E.G. White, Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, p. 57).

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

This is the class that in time of peril are found crying, Peace and safety. They lull their hearts into security, and dream not of danger. When startled from their lethargy, they discern their destitution, and entreat others to supply their lack; but in spiritual things no man can make up another’s deficiency. The grace of God has been freely offered to every soul. The message of the gospel has been heralded, “Let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17. But character is not transferable. No man can believe for another. No man can receive the Spirit for another. No man can impart to another the character which is the fruit of the Spirit’s working. “Though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it [the land], as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.” Ezekiel 14:20.

The class represented by the foolish virgins are not hypocritesThey have a regard for the truth, they have advocated the truth, they are attracted to those who believe the truth; but they have not yielded themselves to the Holy Spirit’s workingThey have not fallen upon the Rock, Christ Jesus, and permitted their old nature to be broken up. This class are represented also by the stony-ground hearers. They receive the word with readiness, but they fail of assimilating its principles. Its influence is not abiding. The Spirit works upon man’s heart, according to his desire and consent implanting in him a new nature; but the class represented by the foolish virgins have been content with a superficial work. They do not know God. They have not studied His character; they have not held communion with Him; therefore they do not know how to trust, how to look and live. Their service to God degenerates into a form. “They come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as My people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.” Ezekiel 33:31. The apostle Paul points out that this will be the special characteristic of those who live just before Christ’s second coming. He says, “In the last days perilous times shall come: for men shall be lovers of their own selves; ... lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

Matthew 23:13 "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to."

Luke 11:52
"Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering."

Matthew 23:23
"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices--mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law--justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.


"The plain straight testimony must live in the church, or the curse of God will rest upon His people as surely as it did upon ancient Israel because of their sins. God holds His people, as a body [corporately], responsible for the sins existing in individuals among them." Testimonies for the Church Volume 3, p. 269.2

“Those ministers who are men pleasers, who cry, Peace, peace, when God has not spoken peace, might well humble their hearts before God, asking pardon for their insincerity and their lack of moral courage. It is not from love for their neighbors that they smooth down the message entrusted to them, but because they are self-indulgent and ease-loving. True love seeks first the honor of God and the salvation of souls. Those who have this love will not evade the truth to save themselves from the unpleasant results of plain speaking. When souls are in peril, God's ministers will not consider self, but will speak the word given them to speak, refusing to excuse or palliate evil.” RH, Mar. 25, 1890.

He who consents cannot object.

In short, until consent is withdrawn, no remedy is possible. After consent is withdrawn, no remedy is necessary.


SCENE D: Claims infallibility – or whatever the Church does or teaches is correct and needs no repentance.

Book, Medallion Presented to Pope (By SDA Church)
REVIEW -AUGUST 11. 1977 (847) 23

In connection with a recent consultative meeting of secretaries of World Confessional Families held in Rome, B. B. Beach, secretary of the Northern Europe-West Africa Division, one of the 15 partic­ipants and the only Adventist in the group, presented a book and a medallion to Pope Paul VI on May 18.

The book presented was the Adventist missionary book Faith in Action, and the me­dallion was a gold-covered symbol of the Seventh Adventist Church. The me­dallion is an engraved witness to the Adventist faith in Christ as Creator, Redeemer, and soon-coming Lord, in the cross and Bible, and in the lasting validity of the Ten Commandments. While the other commandments are represented simply as Roman numerals. the words of the fourth- 'Remember the sab­bath day, to keep it holy" ­are written out.

The Conference of World Confessional Families usually meets once a year. It is not an organization, but an informal, unstructured forum for con­sultation and the exchange of useful information.  W. D. EVA

 Does Sister White say the GC SDA can become Babylon?  

"If the church of God becomes lukewarm, it does not stand in favour with God any more than do the churches that are represented as having fallen and become the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird." Letter 35, 1898, p. 6-7

"We are in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted, and filled with every foul spirit, and cage of every unclean and hateful bird." Letter 51, 9/6/1886

"The world must not be introduced into the church. And married to the church, forming a bond of unity Through this means the church will become indeed CORRUPT AND AS STATED IN Revelation, a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. TM 265

"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." -Spirit of Prophecy, vol 4, p 424 or Great Controversy, p 606-607

The Word says..
Revelation 18:2, "And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird." 

 Sister White said of these people that lead the GC SDA...

"That these men should stand in a sacred place, to be as the voice of God to the people, as we once believedthe General Conference to be--that is past".--GCB April 3, 1901, p. 25.  {Last Day Events 50.4}

“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. He hopes to deceive the honest and lead them to think that God is still working for the churches. But the light will shine, and all who are honest will leave the fallen churches, and take their stand with the remnant”  -Early Writings: page 261. 

"I saw the nominal church and nominal Adventists, like Judaswould betray us to the Catholics to obtain their influence to come against the truth. The saints then will be an obscure people, little known to the Catholics; but the churches and nominal Adventists who know of our faith and customs (for they hated us on account of the Sabbath, for they could not refute it) will betray the saints and report them to the Catholics as those who disregard the institutions of the people; that is, that they keep the Sabbath and disregard Sunday." E.G. White, Spalding--Magan Unpublished Testimonies, p. 1.

 Sister White said of these people that stay in such a church...

It is impossible for any one to become a true follower of Jesus Christ, without distinguishing himself from the worldly mass of unbelievers. If the world would accept of Jesus, then there would be no sword of dissension; for all would be disciples of Christ and in fellowship one with another, and their unity would be unbroken. But this is not the case. Here and there an individual member of a family is true to the convictions of his conscience, and is compelled to stand alone in his family or in the church to which he belongs, and is finally compelled, because of the course of those with whom he associates, to separate himself from their companionship. The line of demarkation is made distinct. One stands upon the word of God, the others upon the traditions and sayings of men. -Review & Herald, July 24, 1894, para. 3


John 12:42 "Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they would not confess their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue [church];"

Nebuchadnezzar's advisers did not believe in the one true God. Now, Daniel and his three friends were not part of the advisers called in by the King. Nebuchadnezzar told his magicians and astrologers that they first had to tell him what he dreamed, and then explain the dream to him. The magicians and astrologers had spent their whole lives following after idols and false gods. Their “gods” were worthless - they could not speak, much less interpret a dream. Only the one true God is living and powerful and able to rescue His people. Are you following after something that is worthless? If you trust in anything other than the one true God, you are wasting your time and you are in danger. 

DEUTERONOMY 6:4 — Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”

1 Kings 18:39 "When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The Lord—he is God! The Lord—he is God!”

"They (preachers and leaders of all 501c3 churches today) have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace." Jeremiah 6:14... warning from the angels of God; but other voices are heard saying ... no cause for alarm.” The multitudes cry, “Peace and safety,” Maranatha, p. 260.4 

“Escape for thy life,” is the warning from the angels of God; but other voices are heard saying, “Be not excited; there is no cause for alarm.” The multitudes cry, “Peace and safety,” while Heaven declares that swift destruction is about to come upon the transgressor." Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 167.2

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 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


“I saw that God has honest children among the nominal (in name only=laodicean=foolish virgin=tare in the 501c3 theological bundle) Adventists and the fallen churches, and before the plagues shall be poured out, ministers and people will be called out from these churches (501c3 Adventist and all other 501c3 denominations/bundles) and will gladly receive the truth. Satan knows this and before the loud cry (prior to the Sunday law enforcement - after the Sunday law is passed by legislation it will be TOO LATE, like it was TOO LATE for the 5 foolish virgins - Christ will say, "Depart from me for I know you not".) 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. He hopes to deceive the honest and lead them to think that God is still working for the churches. But the light will shine, and all who are honest will leave the fallen (501c3 theological bundles of) churches, and take their stand with the remnant”  -Early Writings: page 261.

Or "The church will appear as about to fall, BUT SHE WILL NOT FALL!"

“Those ministers who are men pleasers, who cry, Peace, peace, when God has not spoken peace, might well humble their hearts before God, asking pardon for their insincerity and their lack of moral courage. It is not from love for their neighbors that they smooth down the message entrusted to them, but because they are self-indulgent and ease-loving. True love seeks first the honor of God and the salvation of souls. Those who have this love will not evade the truth to save themselves from the unpleasant results of plain speaking. When souls are in peril, God's ministers will not consider self, but will speak the word given them to speak, refusing to excuse or palliate evil.” RH, Mar. 25, 1890.

Like the dwellers in the vale of Siddim, the people are dreaming of prosperity and peace. "Escape for thy life," is the warning from the angels of God; but other voices are heard saying, "Be not excited; there is no cause for alarm." The multitudes cry, "Peace and safety," while Heaven declares that swift destruction is about to come upon the transgressor. On the night prior to their destruction, the cities of the plain rioted in pleasure and derided the fears and warnings of the messenger of God; but those scoffers perished in the flames; that very night the door of mercy was forever closed to the wicked, careless inhabitants of Sodom. God will not always be mocked; He will not long be trifled with. "Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it." Isaiah 13:9. The great mass of the world will reject God's mercy, and will be overwhelmed in swift and irretrievable ruin. But those who heed the warning shall dwell "in the secret place of the Most High," and "abide under the shadow of the Almighty." His truth shall be their shield and buckler. For them is the promise, "With long life will I satisfy him, and show him My salvation." Psalm 91:1, 4, 16.  -Patriarchs and Prophets p 167.1 & 2

"Others resisted the light from heaven, saying that it was sent to lead them astray." Early Writings, p. 240.2 

"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 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 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

"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 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 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 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.

I saw those who cherished the light looking upward with ardent desire, expecting Jesus to come and take them to Himself. Soon a cloud passed over them, and their faces were sorrowful. I inquired the cause of this cloud and was shown that it was their disappointment. The time when they expected their Saviour had passed, and Jesus had not come. As discouragement settled upon the waiting ones, the ministers and leading men whom I had before noticed, rejoiced, and all those who had rejected the light triumphed greatly, while Satan and his evil angels also exulted.
Then I heard the voice of another angel saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen!” A light shone upon those desponding ones, and with ardent desires for His appearing, they again fixed their eyes upon Jesus. I saw a number of angels conversing with the one who had cried, “Babylon is fallen,” and these united with him in the cry, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him.” The musical voices of these angels seemed to reach everywhere. An exceedingly bright and glorious light shone around those who had cherished the light which had been imparted to them. Their faces shone with excellent glory, and they united with the angels in the cry, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh.” As they harmoniously raised the cry among the different companies, those who rejected the light pushed them and with angry looks scorned and derided them. But angels of God wafted their wings over the persecuted ones, while Satan and his angels were seeking to press their darkness around them, to lead them to reject the light from heaven.

Then I heard a voice saying to those who had been pushed and derided, “Come out from among them, and touch not the unclean.” In obedience to this voice, a large number broke the cords which bound them, and leaving the companies that were in darkness, joined those who had previously gained their freedom, and joyfully united their voices with them. I heard the voice of earnest, agonizing prayer from a few who still remained with the companies that were in darkness. The ministers and leading men were passing around in these different companies, fastening the cords more firmly; but still I heard this voice of earnest prayer. Then I saw those who had been praying reach out their hands for help toward the united company who were free, rejoicing in God. The answer from them, as they earnestly looked to heaven, and pointed upward, was, “Come out from among them, and be separate.” I saw individuals struggling for freedom, and at last they broke the cords that bound them. They 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.” Persons were continually leaving the companies that were in darkness and joining the free company, who appeared to be in an open field raised above the earth. Their gaze was directed upward, the glory of God rested upon them, and they joyfully shouted His praise. They were closely united and seemed to be wrapped in the light of heaven. Around this company were some who came under the influence of the light, but who were not particularly united to the company. All who cherished the light shed upon them were gazing upward with intense interest, and Jesus looked upon them with sweet approbation. They expected Him to come and longed for His appearing. They did not cast one lingering look to earth. But again a cloud settled upon the waiting ones, and I saw them turn their weary eyes downward. I inquired the cause of this change. Said my accompanying angel, “They are again disappointed in their expectations. Jesus cannot yet come to earth. They must endure greater trials for His sake. They must give up errors and traditions received from men and turn wholly to God and His Word. They must be purified, made white, and tried. Those who endure that bitter trial will obtain an eternal victory.” Early Writings, p. 240.2



1 Kings 18
Elijah on Mount Carmel

16 So Obadiah went to meet Ahab and told him, and Ahab went to meet Elijah. 17 When he saw Elijah, he said to him, “Is that you, you troubler of Israel?”

18 “I have not made trouble for Israel,” Elijah replied. “But you and your father’s family have. You have abandoned the Lord’s commands and have followed the Baals. 19 Now summon the people from all over Israel to meet me on Mount Carmel. And bring the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”

20 So Ahab sent word throughout all Israel and assembled the prophets on Mount Carmel.21 Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”

But the people said nothing.

22 Then Elijah said to them, “I am the only one of the Lord’s prophets left, but Baal has four hundred and fifty prophets. 23 Get two bulls for us. Let Baal’s prophets choose one for themselves, and let them cut it into pieces and put it on the wood but not set fire to it. I will prepare the other bull and put it on the wood but not set fire to it. 24 Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the Lord. The god who answers by fire—he is God.”

Then all the people said, “What you say is good.”

25 Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one of the bulls and prepare it first, since there are so many of you. Call on the name of your god, but do not light the fire.” 26 So they took the bull given them and prepared it.

Then they called on the name of Baal from morning till noon. “Baal, answer us!” they shouted. But there was no response; no one answered. And they danced around the altar they had made.

27 At noon Elijah began to taunt them. “Shout louder!” he said. “Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened.”28 So they shouted louder and slashed themselves with swords and spears, as was their custom, until their blood flowed. 

29 Midday passed, and they continued their frantic prophesying until the time for the evening sacrifice. But there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention.

30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come here to me.” They came to him, and he repaired the altar of the Lord, which had been torn down. 31 Elijah took twelve stones, one for each of the tribes descended from Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord had come, saying, “Your name shall be Israel.” 32 With the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord, and he dug a trench around it large enough to hold two seahs[a] of seed. 33 He arranged the wood, cut the bull into pieces and laid it on the wood. Then he said to them, “Fill four large jars with water and pour it on the offering and on the wood.”

34 “Do it again,” he said, and they did it again.

“Do it a third time,” he ordered, and they did it the third time. 

35 The water ran down around the altar and even filled the trench.

36 At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. 

37 Answer me, Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”

38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.

39 When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The Lord—he is God! The Lord—he is God!”

40 Then Elijah commanded them, “Seize the prophets of Baal. Don’t let anyone get away!” They seized them, and Elijah had them brought down to the Kishon Valley and slaughteredthere.

41 And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.” 42 So Ahab went off to eat and drink, but Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees.

43 “Go and look toward the sea,” he told his servant. And he went up and looked.

“There is nothing there,” he said.

Seven times Elijah said, “Go back.”

44 The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.”

So Elijah said, “Go and tell Ahab, ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.’”

45 Meanwhile, the sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose, a heavy rain started falling and Ahab rode off to Jezreel. 46 The power of the Lord came on Elijah and, tucking his cloak into his belt, he ran ahead of Ahab all the way to Jezreel.

Our Religious Freedom is quickly leaving! Wake UP!

Apostate Protestantism is now doing the work of Papal Rome! 

"Come OUT of all churches MY PEOPLE!" --Jesus Christ (Rev 18:4 and Mat 25:6)
Come OUT and JOIN the procession that is proclaiming this message of Revelation 18 and Matthew 25:6!

This is the procession that enters the Bridegroom's house while the foolish virgins are gone to buy oil for their lamps!

"Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Rev 18:4 

"And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him." Matthew 25:6

"A multitude of voices were heard crying: “Let us depart hence.” The Great Controversy, p. 29.3

"HER" "The woman is a symbol of the church (His People who obey & follow Jesus wheresoever He goeth), and the remnant of the church represents the Christians of the last generation of men, living just prior to the second advent."  Spiritual Gifts, Volume 3, p. 26.2

• Woman, Pure = True Church Jeremiah 6:2; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 5:23-27
• Woman, Corrupt = Apostate church Ezk. 16:15-58; 23:2-21; Hos. 2:5; 3:1; Rev. 14:4
• Harlot = Apostate church/religion Isaiah 1:21-27; Jeremiah 3:1-3; 6-9

Revelation 3:4; "which have not defiled their garments (characters/minds/choices). .... virgins-spiritually (Mt 25:1); in contrast to the apostate Church, Babylon=false doctrines (Re 14:8), spiritually "a harlot" .

Galatians 4:16 "Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?"

"The two classes of watchers represent the two classes who profess to be waiting for their Lord. They are called virgins because they profess a pure faith." {COL 406.3} 

The light that was shed upon the waiting ones penetrated every where, and those who had any light in the churcheswho had not heard and rejected the three messages, answered to the call, and LEFT the fallen (modern SDA and ALL OTHER denominational) churches. Many had come to years of accountability since these messages had been given, and the light shone upon them, and they were privileged to choose life or death. Some chose life, and took their stand with those looking for their Lord, and keeping all his commandments. The third message was to do its work; all were to be tested upon it, and the precious ones were to be CALLED OUT from the RELIGIOUS BODIES. A compelling power moves the honest, while the manifestation of the power of God holds in fear and restraint relatives and friends, and they dare not, neither have they power to, hinder those who feel the work of the Spirit of God upon them. The last call is carried even to the poor slaves, and the pious among them, with humble expressions, pour forth their songs of extravagant joy at the prospect of their happy deliverance,and their masters cannot check them; for a fear and astonishment keep them silent. Mighty miracles are wrought, the sick are healed, and signs and wonders follow the believers. God is in the work, and every saint, fearless of consequences, follows the convictions of his own conscience, and unites with those who are keeping all the commandments of God; and they sound abroad the third message with power. I saw that the third message would close with power and strength far exceeding the midnight cry." Spiritual Gifts. Volume 1, p. 193-196


Something to Ponder
The Catholic Definition: “The Truth is where the Church is.”
The Protestant Definition: “The Church is where the Truth is.”

"Revelation 18 points to the time when, as the result of rejecting the threefold warning of Revelation 14:6-12, the church will have fully reached the condition foretold by the second angel, and the people of God still in Babylon (false doctrines mixed with truth=like the tree of knowledge of good and evil) will be called upon to separate from her communionTHIS message is the LAST that will ever be given to the world.-- The Great Controversy 1888, p. 390.2 (1911).

 Since these are the final messages that will be heard by everyone in this world, they can be likened to a shut door.  If either the message of the Righteousness of Christ, or the messageof Revelation 18, is decidedly rejected, there are no other messages which can bring you back to God.  In decidedly rejecting either one, the door of your probation closes!
     “We know that now everything is at stake.  The third angel’s message is to be at this time regarded as of the highest importance.  It is a life and death question.” Last Day Events from the Letters and Manuscripts of E.G. White, p 76 (Letter 28, February 17, 1900).

"Some chose life, and took their stand with those looking for their Lord, and keeping all his commandments. The third message was to do its work; all were to be tested upon it, and the precious ones were to be CALLED OUT from the RELIGIOUS BODIES. A compelling power moves the honest, (remember how a compelling power moved all of the animals INTO Noah's ark to be saved? This SAME compelling power calls His People OUT of all churches into the ark of TRUTH and God's covering that is being drawn over His People) while the manifestation of the power of God holds in fear and restraint relatives and friends, and they dare not, neither have they power to, hinder those who feel the work of the Spirit of God upon them.... Mighty miracles are wrought, the sick are healed, and signs and wonders follow the believers. God is in the work, and every saint, fearless of consequences, follows the convictions of his own conscience, and unites (joins) with those who are keeping all the commandments of God; and they sound abroad the third message with power. I saw that the third message would close with power and strength far exceeding the midnight cry."

"Servants of God, with their faces lighted up and shining with holy consecration, will hasten from place to place to proclaim the message from heaven. By thousands of voices, all over the earth, the warning will be given. Miracles will be wrought, the sick will be healed, and signs and wonders will follow the believers .... Thus the inhabitants of the earth will be brought to take their stand." (GC 612)

"Souls that were scattered all through the religious bodies answered to the call, and the precious were hurried out of the doomed churches, as Lot was hurried out of Sodom before her destruction. God's people were strengthened by the excellent glory (character) which rested upon them in rich abundance and prepared them to endure the hour of temptation. I heard everywhere a multitude of voices saying, 'Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.'

"As the Lord bade faithful Noah before the flood, Come thou, and all thy house, into the ark, he will, previous to the time of trouble, say to his faithful saints, who have been preparing for translation, “Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee. Hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

(Isaiah 49:16). How to Prepare for Future Protection—When tempted to sin, let us remember that Jesus is pleading for us in the heavenly sanctuary. When we put away our sins and come to Him in faith, He takes our names on His lips, and presents them to His Father, saying, “I have graven them upon the palms of my hands; I know them by name.” And the command goes forth to the angels to protect them. Then in the day of fierce trial He will say, “Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.” What are the chambers in which they are to hide?—They are the protection of Christ and holy angels. The people of God are not at this time all in one place. They are in different companies, and in all parts of the earth; and they will be tried singly, not in groups. Every one must stand the test for himself (The Review and Herald, November 19, 1908).

"Satan is now using every device in this sealing time to keep the minds of God's people from the present truth, and to cause them to waver. I saw a COVERING that God was drawing over His people to protect them in the time of trouble; and every soul that was decided on the truth, and was pure in heart, was to be covered with the covering of the Almighty. Satan knew this, and he was at work in mighty power to keep the minds of as many people as he possibly could wavering and unsettled on the truth.... I saw that Satan was at work ... to distract, deceive, and draw away God's people, just now in this sealing time. I saw some who were not standing stiffly for present truth. Their knees were trembling, and their feet sliding because they were not firmly planted on the truth...."  Sons and Daughters of God, p. 342.2


"Satan was trying his every art to hold them where they were, until the sealing was past, until the covering was drawn over God's people, and they left without a shelter from the burning wrath of God, in the seven last plagues."1Early Writings, 43, 44. --{Sons and Daughters of God, p. 342.2}

It is TRUE that we should stay with the SHIP, but a church is not the ship, Jesus is the SHIP.

“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 honor, 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). {LDE 156.2}

1 Samuel 15:23 "For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry."

Just cooperate with Jesus so you don't frustrate His grace thru a preverse will. Pray to God, "LORD, take me 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". Surrender your soul to Jesus keeping and your life to his ordering, and you will be SAFE in the arms of Jesus.

Dictionary meaning of Preverse: Showing a deliberate and obstinate desire to behave in a way that is unreasonable or unacceptable, often in spite of the consequences.

Ellen White warned that it would be IMPOSSIBLE to reform the new movement and that it would permit nothing to stand in its way. She prophesied that the omega of apostasy of the new movement would wax stronger

UNTIL Jesus comes:

Wax stronger-- "One thing it is certain is soon to be realized, the GREAT APOSTASY, which is DEVELOPING and INCREASING and waxing STRONGER, and WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO UNTIL THE LORD SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WITH A SHOUT. We are to hold fast the FIRST principles of our denominated faith, and go forward from strength to increased faith. Ever we are to keep the faith that has been substantiated by the Holy Spirit of God from the earlier events of our experience until the present time. We need now larger breadth, and deeper, more earnest, unwavering faith in the LEADINGS of the Holy Spirit. If we needed the manifest proof of the Holy Spirit's power to confirm truth in the beginning, after the passing of the time, we need to-day all the evidence in the confirmation of the truth, when souls are departing from the faith and giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. There must not be any languishing of soul now." (E.G. White, Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, p. 57).

Does "the GREAT APOSTASY, which is DEVELOPING and INCREASING and waxing stronger, and WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout.", sound as if the SDA church is going to REFORM? No, Ladocia is spued out, and becomes the Synagogue of Satan. The modern SDA church will never reform, (some people inside it will come out and be saved) but this church will be brought down to hell.

“Of those who boast of their light, and yet fail to walk in it, Christ says, "But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum [Seventh-day Adventists, who have had great light], which art exalted unto heaven [in point of privilege], shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee." The brackets are Mrs. White’s.


CHANGING LEADERS





Has the Seventh-day Adventist Church changed leaders? Ellen White told us that the SDA Church would change Gods at the time of the end. The following quotes will demonstrate this.

"Multitudes of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will CHANGE LEADERS and not know that you have done so." Review & Herald, Dec. 16, 1890. "They will not recognize him (Satan) as their enemy, that old serpent, but they will consider him a friend, one who is doing a good work." 5 T 394

"Let none suppose that because they have been used as the Lord's instrumentalities, they are all-sufficient. The Lord uses men and honors them by giving them His wisdom, as long as they are true to Him, and do not gather glory to themselves. Those who take themselves out of the Lord's hands, and think themselves capable of managing the work, are not led by His Spirit, but by 'another spirit.' SATAN steps in, and they CHANGE LEADERS. Then comes the crookedness and subtlety of the serpent's guile." Upward Look 135

"Men in positions of responsibility are in danger of CHANGING LEADERS. This I know, for it has been plainly revealed to me. . ." Testimonies, Series B, No. 2, 48. The evidence that the SDA Church has changed leaders can be seen in the lack of the presence of the Holy Spirit. Also in the signs and symbols of Babylon that are showing up on many of their documents. Ezekiel 8 and 9 was written for the endtime Laodicean Church. They would turn their backs toward the true God, and face the east and worship the sun-god Lucifer. With all the sun signs showing up hidden in many documents, including the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, North American Division letterhead. This is hard evidence that they no longer worship the true God of Jacob, our Creator and the Sun of Righteousness (Malachi 4:2) Jesus Christ. 

TVol. 8, page 294, “The hypnotic influence of Satan will rest upon those who turn from the plain word of God to pleasing fables. It is those who have had the most light that Satan most assiduously seeks to ensnare. The enemy is trying to divert minds from preparing to stand in these last days."

"The days are fast approaching when there will be great perplexity and confusion. Satan, clothed in angel robes, will deceive, if possible, the very elect. There will be gods manyand lords many. Every wind of doctrine will be blowing. Those who have rendered supreme homage to "science falsely so called" will not be the leaders then. Those who have trusted to intellect, genius, or talent will not then stand at the head of rank and file. They did not keep pace with the light. Those who have proved themselves unfaithful will not then be entrusted with the flock. In the last solemn work few great men will be engaged. They are self-sufficient, independent of God, and He cannot use them. The Lord has faithful servants, who in the shaking, testing time will be disclosed to view. There are precious ones now hidden who have not bowed the knee to Baal. They have not had the light which has been shining in a concentrated blaze upon you. But it may be under a rough and uninviting exterior the pure brightness of a genuine Christian character will be revealed. In the day time we look toward heaven but do not see the stars. They are there, fixed in the firmament, but the eye cannot distinguish them. In the night we behold their genuine lustre." 5T 080

"YES!" "I thought the SDA church would be following TRUTH to END of TIME!?"

"There is another and more important question that should engage the attention of the churches of today. The apostle Paul declares that "all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." only reason is, that the church has conformed to the world's standard, and therefore awakens no opposition. [SDA church is today a conformed member of the WCC] The religion which is current in our day is not [2 TIM. 3:12.] Why is it, then, that persecution seems in a great degree to slumber?--The of the pure and holy character that marked the Christian faith in the days of Christ and his apostles. It is only because of the spirit of compromise with sin, because the great truths of the Word of God are so indifferently regarded, because there is so little vital godliness in the church, that Christianity is apparently so popular with the world. Let there be a revival of the faith and power of the early church, and the spirit of persecution will be revived, and the fires of persecution will be rekindled." {GC88 48.2}

"Well would it be for the church and the world if the principles that actuated those steadfast souls were revived in the hearts of God's professed people. There is an alarming indifference in regard to the doctrines which are the pillars of the Christian faith. The opinion is gaining ground, that, after all, these are not of vital importance. This degeneracy is strengthening the hands of the agents of Satan, so that false theories and fatal delusions which the faithful in ages past imperiled their lives to resist and expose, are now regarded with favor by thousands who claim to be followers of Christ." {GC88 45.3}

I am instructed that the Lord, by His infinite power, has preserved the right hand of His messenger for more than half a century, in order that the truth may be written out as He bids me write it for publication, in periodicals and books, Why?-- Because if it were not thus written out, when the pioneers in the faith shall die, there would be many, new in the faith, who would sometimes accept as messages of truth teachings that contain erroneous sentiments and dangerous fallacies. Sometimes that which men teach as "special light" is in reality specious error, which, as tares sown among the wheat, will spring up and produce a baleful harvest. And errors of this sort will be entertained by some until the close of this earth's history. {TDG 126.1}

     There are some, who upon accepting erroneous theories, strive to establish them by collecting from my writings statements of truth, which they use, separated from their proper connection and perverted by association with error. Thus seeds of heresy, springing up and growing rapidly into strong plants, are surrounded by many precious plants of truth, and in this way a mighty effort is made to vindicate the genuineness of the spurious plants. {TDG 126.2}

     There are many who interpret that which I write in the light of their own preconceived opinions. You know what this means. A division in understanding and diverse opinions is the sure result. {3SM 79.3}

     If the preconceived opinions or particular ideas of some are crossed in being reproved by testimonies, they have a burden at once to make plain their position to discriminate between the testimoniesdefining what is Sister White's human judgment, and what is the word of the Lord. Everything that sustains their cherished ideas is divine, and the testimonies to correct their errors are human--Sister White's opinions. They make of none effect the counsel of God by their tradition.--Manuscript 16, 1889. {3SM 68.2}

     Some who are supposed to be heart and soul devoted to God are acting contrary to Him and to His work. Others have placed confidence in them, but deception covers them as with a garment. Their minds are controlled by a restless, irrepressible energy, an eagerness to disclose their sentiments. Thus seeds are sown everywhere. By a partially expressed sentiment they cast doubt and unbelief of the truth. There are those who are not in harmony with the testimonies because men in high positions of trust have expressed themselves as not in harmony with them; for the testimonies do not coincide with their opinions, but rebuke every vestige of selfishness. {TM 291.1}

     Satan has laid every measure possible that nothing shall come among us as a people to reprove and rebuke us, and exhort us to put away our errors. But there is a people who will bear the ark of God. Some will go out from among us (modern SDA church has departed from the doctrines of the pioneers of Adventism) who will bear the ark no longer. But these cannot make walls to obstruct the truth; for it will go onward and upward to the end. In the past God has raised up men, and He still has men of opportunity waiting, prepared to do His bidding--men who will go through restrictions which are only as walls daubed with untempered mortar. When God puts His Spirit upon men, they will work. They will proclaim the word of the Lord; they will lift up their voice like a trumpet. The truth will not be diminished or lose its power in their hands. They will show the people their transgressions, and the house of Jacob their sins.  {TM 411.1}

The Shaking and the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

Ellen White the shaking laodicea philadelphia the general confernence seventh day adventists

“The mighty shaking has commenced and will go on, and all will be shaken out who are not willing to take a bold and unyielding stand for the truth, and to sacrifice for God and His cause.” (Ellen White A Word to the Little Flock, p. 31, 1847)

There are many misunderstandings about the shaking.  Many people today teach that the shaking involves being shaken out of the General Conference organization of Seventh-day Adventists.

See logo below how modern 501c3 Adventism tries to cut out the early history of Adventism? This is the date of the THIRD chart. The first and second angels message chart was made in 1843 and the 2nd chart was about the 3rd angels message made in 1850. 

The two charts 1843 and 1850 prophecy charts shown below are the two WINGS (2 charts of the 1st, 2nd & 3rd angels messages) that were given to the Ten Virgins/Adventists to nourish and feed God's people while they were wandering in the wilderness (for 171 years now) from October 22, 1844, going into the promised land, the Heavenly Canaan, into the Sanctuary, into the bridal chamber (Most Holy Place - our MINDS settled in the truth-studying the Bible/SOP with an intensity before unknown) and the gospel feast of the Bread of Life, by claiming the Bible verse promises, the victory of Christ as their own into the protection of Christ and His angels...by claiming the precious Bible promises as our very own! 

God’s word sets forth the principle that a thing is established upon the testimony of two witnesses (Deut 19:15, 2Cor 13:1). Therefore the 1843 and 1850 charts constitute two (of many) witnesses to the truthfulness of the messages on the charts – including the 2520.

The quote above was written in 1847, the General Conference was formed in 1863, sixteen years after this quote.  If the shaking had commenced in 1847 as is written, then how is it that this shaking involved being shaken out of the General Conference organization?  Clearly the shaking was happening before the General Conference was even formed.

1863 image link here: http://www.quazoo.com/q/Seventh-day_Adventist_Church The SDA church had already become laodicean by 1852  "The words addressed to the Laodicean Church, describe their present condition perfectly." {RH June 10, 1852, par. 2}.

Why Christ spews the lukewarm Laodicean out of His mouth

"To those who are indifferent at this time Christ's warning is: 'Because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of My mouth.' Revelation 3:16. The figure of spewing out of His mouth means that He cannot offer up your prayers or your expressions of love to God. he cannot endorse your teaching of His word or your spiritual work in anywise. He cannot present your religious exercises with the request that grace be given you." 6 Testimonies, p. 408


"As soon as the views of these people were crossed, they manifested a stubborn, self-righteous spirit that rejected all instruction. Though professing great humility, they were boastful in their sophistry of sanctification, and resisted all appeals to reason. We felt that all our efforts to convince them of their error were useless, as they took the position that they were not learners but teachers.” (LS88 p. 209)

“Today we hesitate to claim we’re the remnant; but as for Laodicea, that’s us! Us alone!...No other Christian group vies with us for the dubious privilege of being identified with it....claiming exclusive rights to Laodicea is not politically incorrect. So, unchallenged, we've become anchored in the view that Seventh-day Adventists are the sole group envisioned in the apocalyptic concept of that term.” Adventist Review, August 28, 2008, p 5.

"If the church of God becomes lukewarm [LAODICEAN], it does not stand in favour with God any more than do the churches that are represented as having fallen and become the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird." Letter 35, 1898, p. 6-7

"So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." Revelation 3:16

Revelation 3:15
I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!

Revelation 3:17
You say, 'I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.' But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.

"The sins of Babylon will be laid open. The fearful results of enforcing the observances of the church by civil authority, the inroads of Spiritualism, the stealthy but rapid progress of the papal power,--all will be unmasked."

The Great Controversy 1888, p. 606.2


“The history of the early experiences (1841-1850) in the message will be a power to withstand the masterly ingenuity of Satan's deceptions.” EGW, Letter 99, 1905.

The warning has come: Nothing is to be allowed to come in that will disturb the foundation of the faith upon which we have been building ever since the message came in1842, 1843, and 1844. I was in this message, and ever since I have been standing before the world, true to the light that God has given us. We do not propose to take our feet off the platform on which they were placed as day by day we sought the Lord with earnest prayer, seeking for light. Do you think that I could give up the light that God has given me? It is to be as the Rock of Ages. (GCB April 6th1903)

       We have, as had John, a message to bear of the things which we have seen and heard. God is not giving us a new message. We are to proclaim the message that in 1843 and 1844 brought us out of the other churches. We need the Holy Spirit to kindle in our hearts the zeal and earnestness that were then seen among God's people. I thank the Lord that there are still living a few who can remember those days, and who know whereof they speak.(RH Jan 19th 1905)

       The truths that we received in 1841, '42, '43, and '44 are now to be studied and proclaimedThe messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit.(15MR Ltr 75 1905)

        All the messages given from 1840-1844 are to be made forcible NOWfor there are many people who have lost their bearingsThe messages are to go to all the churches.  {21MR 437.1}(LTR 54 1906)

       God bids us give our time and strength to the work of preaching to the people the messages that stirred men and women in 1843 and 1844.  {MR760 30.1}(July 4th 1907)

So true, Elder Storrs. "No church can be organized by man's invention but that it becomes Babylon the moment it is organized." One man, Elder Storrs once wrote, "The minute you organize you have become part of Rome."The SDA church was only pure for about 8 years!!! ...It became LAODICEAN in 1852 according to Sister White!

"Many who profess to be looking for the speedy coming of Christ, are becoming conformed to this world, and seek more earnestly the applause of those around them, than the approbation of God. They are cold and formal, like the nominal church, that they but a short time since separated from. The words addressed to the Laodicean Church, describe their present condition perfectly. See Revelation 3:14-20. They are "neither cold nor hot," but "lukewarm." And unless they heed the counsel of the "faithful and True Witness," and zealously repent, and obtain "gold tried in the fire," "white raiment," and "eye-salve," he will spue them out of his mouth." {RH June 10, 1852, par. 2}; in EW this was titled "Hope of the Church" and in Supplement to the Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White, p. 26.3

"Many professing faith in the message are in the Laodicean church, and want more of the power of godliness to live their faith before the world." [implies believers in third angel's message are Laodicean]; does James White also allude to this in {October 14, 1852 JWe, ARSH 96.6}? {J. H. Waggoner, Letter to Review, October 14, 1852 JWe, ARSH 93.26}

"The truths that we received in 1841, '42, '43, and '44 are now to be studied and proclaimed. The messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future [now] be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit." {15MR 317.1}

So we find that by 1852, Sister White had a vision- "Dear brothers and sisters, the Lord has shown me in vision some things concerning the church in its present, lukewarm condition." As near as I can find out it was 1852. By 1852 friends, the Seventh-day Adventist church and that is only how many years after it was founded? Eight years after it was founded, she was shown in vision that it was lukewarm. What does that mean? Laodicean! Rich and increased with goods, in need of nothing but in reality they were wretched, poor, naked, blind and all the rest. But they thought that they were rich and increased with goods and in need of nothing.

When the church gets in that condition you've got some problems that develop. The first problem is friends, when people are self satisfied and lukewarm they usually aren't doing too much. They're lazy. And the leadership of the Adventist church by 1852 hadn't realized it because they'd slipped into Laodicea too so God now sends a message and He says Look, I'm the Physician here and I'm diagnosing the condition of the patient. You are lukewarm… read the rest of the chapter friends, it's entitled, 'Be zealous therefore and repent'. And incidentally, the only solution for lukewarmness is repentance. There is no other. You cannot buy the white raiment until you have repented.

In another place Sister White says, "The coin with which you purchase the white raiment and the eyesalve is repentance." So Laodicea is hopeless until it repents. So the message of repentance was sent to the church, it's a fascinating article; it is full of pertinent information, which you need now, if you are a Laodicean Seventh-day Adventist.

Now the brethren had on their hands here a group of people who were Laodicean so they hobbled alone and hobbled along and things weren't going good and so pretty soon the hue and cry began to arise in the Adventist church we must organize! Now Ellen G. White saw the movement for organization but she did not instigate it- you cannot find in the Testimonies a place where sister White says, "I was shown in vision that we should organize" and then the brethren said that- No. The brethren had a problem, they had a Laodicean church on their hands and it was going to sleep and it was contented and satisfied and wasn't doing what it was supposed to do.

So they said now we've got to organize. One of the men who led out in this was James White. Another man that led out in it was J.N. Andrews; and these men fought tremendous opposition because these Adventists felt a little bit like I do, and that is, if you organize you're opening the door for the devil to take over the organization. One man, Elder Storrs once wrote, "The minute you organize you have become part of Rome." So they couldn't get very far with organization.

Such teaching that we will be shaken out of the General Conference Church is erroneous and could be very deceiving if the opposite were truth.   The shaking does not mean to be shaken out of the General Conference organization, but to be shaken out of the truth.   In 1858, still five years before the formation of the General Conference, Ellen wrote:

“I asked the meaning of the shaking I had seen. I was shown that it would be caused by the straight testimony called forth by the counsel of the true Witness to the Laodiceans. It will have its effect upon the heart of the receiver of the testimony, and it will lead him to exalt the standard and pour forth the straight truth. This straight testimony some will not bear. They will rise up against it, and this will cause a shaking among God’s people.” (Spiritual Gifts, vol. 1, pp. 184, 185, 1858)

So to be shaken out, was not to be shaken out of the General Conference organization, but was to be shaken out of truth.  This is especially true if the shaking had commenced before the formation of the General Conference.

“The numbers of this company [the faithful] had lessened. Some had been shaken out, and left by the way. The careless and indifferent who did not join with those who prized victory and salvation enough to agonize, persevere, and plead for it, did not obtain it, and they were left behind in darkness, and their numbers were immediately made up by others taking hold of the truth, and coming into the ranks. Still the evil angels pressed around them, but they could have no power over them.” (Spiritual Gifts, vol. 1, p. 186; written in 1858)

If in 1858 the shaking had commenced and some had already been shaken out, then it could not be referring to the General Conference, since the General Conference had not yet been formed.

Those who are shaken out include those who are shaken out of the truth, those who did not prize the victory, and salvation, who were not willing to agonize for it, or persevere and plead for it.

The Shaking a Counsel to Laodicea

“I asked the meaning of the shaking I had seen. I was shown that it would be caused by the straight testimony called forth by the counsel of the true Witness to the Laodiceans..” (Spiritual Gifts, vol. 1, pp. 184, 185)

Who are the Laodiceans?

“The message to the Laodiceans is applicable to SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS who have great light and have not walked in the light.” (2 Selected Messages p. 66)

Laodicea does not represent the true Adventists, it represents Adventists who have not walked in the light, nominal Adventists, or professed Adventists.  Joseph Bates once wrote this plainly…

Joseph Bates sardis Philadelphia Laodicea nominal adventists“First part, SARDIS, the nominal church or Babylon. Second part, Laodicea, the nominal Adventist. Third part, Philadelphia, the only true church of God on earth, for they ask to be translated to the city of God. Rev.iii,12; Heb.xii,22–24. In the name of Jesus, I exhort you again to flee from the Laodiceans, as from Sodom and Gomorrah. Their teachings are false and delusive; and lead to utter destruction. Death! DEATH!! eternal DEATH!!! is on their track. Remember Lot’s wife.” JOSEPH BATES. Fairhaven, Mass.,  Nov. 10, 1850. (The Adventist Review and Sabbath Herald, November 1850)

We are told straightly Laodicea represents nominal Adventists, or professed Adventists.  They say they are Adventists and are not.  Having a name on your organization makes them Adventist as much as calling yourself a Jew means you are a real Jew, or saying you are Abraham’s seed, but your real father is the devil.  The true Adventist is not one which has a baptismal certificate which says he is a Seventh-day Adventist, but rather the true Adventist is one which is one inwardly, in the heart, in the spirit, whose praise is not of men, but of God.(See Rom 2:28, 29).

The bible tells the Philadelphians that there would be those who profess they are Jews and are not right before the second coming.  The bible tells us they are not God’s church, but are the “synagogue of Satan”.

Rev 3:9  Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

That was written to the church of Philadelphia, which is God’s last true church.   Ellen White identified these professed Jews in the above verse as “professed Adventists”.

“You think, that those who worship before the saint’s feet, (Rev 3:9), will at last be saved. Here I must differ with you; for God shewed me that this class were professed Adventists, who had fallen away, and “crucified to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame.” And in the “hour of temptation,” which is yet to come, to show out every one’s true character, they will know that they are forever lost; and overwhelmed with anguish of spirit, they will bow at the saint’s feet.” (EGW A Word to the Little Flock, page 12)

In this passage we are shown that the “synagogue of Satan” in Revelation 3:9 is a church and says that they are Adventist, but are not.  As Joseph Bates put it “First part, SARDIS, the nominal church or Babylon. Second part, Laodicea, the nominal Adventist. Third part, Philadelphia, the only true church of God on earth…”(The Adventist Review and Sabbath Herald, November 1850)

Philadelphia is “the only true church of God on earth” in this time.  It has been since 1844 and will be until Jesus comes and we are warned to flee out of the midst of this Laodicean church by God himself and not to look back.

Notice in the following quote that those described as the Church of Philadelphia in Revelation 3:7-13 are the 144,000, the sealed.  To be outside of this church in the time of the end, and in Laodicea will ensure that you receive the mark of the beast.

“The 144,000 were all sealed and perfectly united. On their foreheads was written, God, New Jerusalem, and a glorious star containing Jesus’ new name…Then it was that the synagogue of Satan knew that God had love us who could wash one another’s feet and salute the brethren with a holy kiss, and they worshiped at our feet.” (EGW Early Writings page 15)

Who is Laodicea?  We have learned already that Laodicea represents Adventists who have had great light and not walked in it, also, professed Adventists, or nominal Adventists.   Most who have some background on Seventh-day Adventism already understand who it is that I am talking about.  Many times we quote the papacy and allow them to speak for themselves, to expose the truth about Babylon, the little horn, as well as the first beast of Revelation.  Today there is another group who know very well who they are, but don’t understand the consequences of who they are.  It is the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, an organization that says they are Adventist and are not, an organization of “professed Adventists”.   From an article in the Adventist Review from August 2008 we read:

“Today we hesitate to claim we’re the remnant; but as for Laodicea, that’s us! Us alone!…No other Christian group vies with us for the dubious privilege of being identified with it….claiming exclusive rights to Laodicea is not politically incorrect. So, unchallenged, we’ve become anchored in the view that Seventh-day Adventists are the sole group envisioned in the apocalyptic concept of that term.” (Adventist Review, August 28, 2008, p 5.)

He is correct, just as Joseph Bates was that they are not the remnant, but they are Laodicea, and regarding this nominal Adventist organization, we have a call to give them:

Call out of the Nominal (Professed) Adventist Churches

“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. He hopes to deceive the honest and lead them to think that God is still working for the churches. But the light will shine, and all who are honest will leave the fallen churches, and take their stand with the remnant.” (Ellen White Early Writings 261).

If this is to happen just before the loud cry and the plagues being poured out, then it would be a great deception to teach that the shaking shakes people out of the General Conference.  When in fact the call will be the opposite which is “come out of those churches” before the plagues fall.

The promise is that the honest will come out of the nominal Adventist churches just before the plagues are poured out and will take their stand with the true Adventists, the Adventist Church of 1844, the one that was in existence more than nineteen years before the General Conference.

Summary:

  1. The Shaking commenced before the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists did.
  2. The Seventh-day Adventist Church existed before the General Conference did.
  3. The shaking is a message to Laodicea
  4. Laodicea represents Adventists who have not walked in the light
  5. Laodicea represents professed Adventists who are not Adventists at all.
  6. Laodicea is called “the synagogue of Satan” and not “the church of God”
  7. We are to flee out of the midst of Laodicea and the nominal Adventists and not look back or we would suffer destruction and death.
  8. Philadelphia is the true Seventh-day Adventist church of the last days.

Can you explain why the Adventist changed the 3 angels message sign to the flickering flame? Changing even their signs from the 3 Angels to "another Spirit" sign.  Egyptian symbol with the cross and a sphere, and the all seeing eye. I believe they are correct. This is full proof of the wrong people taking over the offices since Christ has left her. We must mark well the fact that this current church is based on "human power", and "nothing would be allowed to stand in the way" of all of it. Pray and remain faithful ourselves. Call it out to those requiring a thus saith the Lord. 

Apparently, just before the church officially changed their logo, there were many SDA publications showing up with three wavy lines. In the occult a serpent equates to the number six and the three wavy lines had made their appearance on such publications as, Zondervan's NIV Bible, the book: Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry (BEM), and other World Council of Churches publications. Isn't it a curious matter that the SDA Church would give heed to the number 666 in their church periodicals? 






Compare carefully the similarities between these two symbols. The Alchemical Cryptogram also involves the triangle or (Pyramid), the circle or (Disk) and the cross under the circle.

What is Alchemy?

“Alchemy is an influential philosophical tradition whose early practitioners’ claims to profound powers were known from antiquity. The defining objectives of alchemy are varied; these include the creation of the fabled philosopher’s stone possessing powers including the capability of turning base metals into the noble metals gold or silver- as well as an elixir of life conferring youth and immortality.” (See Wikipedia article on Alchemy)

Esoteric Meaning of Alchemy:

“In the eyes of a variety of esoteric and Hermetic practitioners, the heart of alchemy is spiritual. Transmutation of lead into gold is presented as an analogy for personal transmutation, purification, and perfection.”

(Antoine Faivre, Wouter J. Hanegraaff, Western esotericism and the science of religion, p. 96, 1995)

Manly P. Hall says the enigma of the Alchemical Cryptogram ”is a reminder that those studying works on Hermeticism, Rosicrucianism, alchemy, and Freemasonry should always be on the lookout for concealed meanings hidden either in parables and allegories or in cryptic arrangements of numbers, letters, and words. (Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, p. 563, 2003 original text published on 1928)

Grillot de Givry describes alchemy:

“There was one doctrine, alchemy, which claim to penetrate the mystery of life and of the formation of inanimate substances.” (Witchcraft, Magic & Alchemy by Grillot de Givry, p. 347, 1971)

“One of the first precised notions gleaned from reading authors who have treated of alchemy is that this science is based on a secret reserved for only a few privileged adepts possessing the intellectual and moral qualities requisite for obtaining it.” (Witchcraft, Magic & Alchemy by Grillot de Givry, p. 347, 1971)

Why did the SDA church end up choosing a symbol similar to the Alchemical Cryptogram? That is a question that any smart member of the SDA religious organization should be asking around.

 THE MAGICAL TRIANGLE OF SOLOMON

As we can see in the illustration above, the Seventh Day Adventists logo can also be compared to me magical triangle of Solomon. Let us review the  Qabbalistic masonic concepts involved into this symbol.  The SDA logo has concealed in it the pyramid, the disk and the three flames representing the “Trinity of the Sephiroth”, which is the triad of the Qabbalists. (Look at the Qabbalist symbol שׁ or “Letter Shin” on the upper right)

According to Freemasonry books there is an occult meaning involved in the Qabbalistic symbol called “Letter Shin” (Next symbol). In the book (The Secret Teachings off all Ages) Manly P. Hall says:

The Qabbalists used the letter שׁShin, to signify the trinity of the first three Sephiroth. The central circle slightly above the other two is the first Sephira–Kether, the White Head, the Crown. The other two circles represent Chochmah, the Father, and Binah, the Mother. From the union of the Divine Father and the Divine Mother are produced the worlds and the generations of living things. The three flame-like points of the letter ש have long been used to conceal this Creative Triad of the Qabbalists.” (Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, page 372) (bolds and colors in the quote added by this website).

The Magical Triangle of Art is also known as the Solomonic Triangle or Triangle of Evocations.

The triangle of art represents the protected space outside the magic circle, into which spirits are compelled to appear in Solomonic ritual magic. Typically, the central circle is inscribed with the sigil (seal) of the spirit to be invoked. The usual form is of a triangle, circumscribed with various words of power, containing an inner, blackened circle. The purpose of the triangle is to contain the manifested entity. In some cases, the triangle is created as a physical object; sometimes, the central circle is replaced with a black scrying mirror.”

THE MAGICAL JEWISH TETRAGRAMMATON

The Tetragrammaton is usually represented as a triangular shape with a circle inside. According to Lenormant and his book “Chaldean Magic”, the letters of the Tetragrammaton originated in Chaldea:

The Pythagorean idea of the creative powers of numbers and letters, upon which the ‘Sefer Yetzirah’ is founded, and which was known in tannaitic times…is here proved to be an old cabalistic conception. In fact, the belief in the magic power of the letters of the Tetragrammaton and other names of the Deity…seems to have originated in Chaldea (see Lenormant, ‘Chaldean Magic,’ pp. 29, 43). Bolds added

The Jewish Encyclopedia defines the Tetragrammaton as: “The quadriliteral name of God, , which is thus referred to in Josephus, in the Church Fathers, in the magic papyri, and in the Palestinian Talmud (Yoma 40a, below), whence it has passed into the modern languages. (see Jewish Encyclopedia article on Tetragramaton)

The Tetragrammaton is a Qabbalistic symbol used for magical rituals and spirit invocations. According to the Jewish mystic religion, the tetragrammaton refers to the name of “the God of Israel” YHWH, but there is one big problem; the God of Israel is not the God of Christianity anymore. When the pharisees (Jewish leaders) confronted Jesus claiming that they were legitimate descendants of Abraham, they said; “The only Father we have is God himself.” (John 8:41) But Jesus replied to them:

  • “…If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.” (John 8:42-46  NIV 1984)
  • “Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.” (John 5:22-23 NIV 1984)

The apostle Paul warned us against following false Jewish teachings:

For there are many rebellious people, mere talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision group. They must be silenced, because they are ruining whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach and that for the sake of dishonest gain. Even one of their own prophets has said, “Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons.” This testimony is true. Therefore, rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith and will pay no attention to Jewish myths or to the commands of those who reject the truth. To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted. They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.” (Titus 1:10-16 NIV 1984)

In the book “Clinical and experimental hypnosis in medicine, dentistry, and psychology” the effects of the magical tetragrammaton are defined:

In Major Trends in Jewish Mysticism, which gives me the impression of a Judaized treatise on Yoga, G.G. Scholem describes how Abulafia, a cabbalistic philosopher and mystic, developed a method of concentration up on the magical and mystical properties of the Hebrew letters, arranging and rearranging them, starting with the tetragrammaton and developing 99 further names of God. Bowers and Glasner were impressed with the autohypnotic nature of Abulafia’s experiences; the various letter combinations produced hypnotic fantasies which accounted for the new truths and insight achieved. (William S. Kroger, M.D., Michael D. Yapko, Ph. D., Clinical and experimental hypnosis in medicine, dentistry, and psychology, p 125, 1963, 1977, 2008) Bolds added

It is scientifically proven that triangles have been used in magic and hypnotism for many different purposes.

By staring for some minutes at the middle of the triangles young people easily fall asleep and enter the somnambulistic state.” (Fredrik Johan Björnström M.D., Hypnotism, p. 5, 1889)

Qabbalistic symbolism does not comes from God, but from rabbinical Judaism which is nothing else than a mix of all the occult practices and mysticism they had borrowed from the Babylonians, Egyptians, Chaldeans, Canaanites, etc.. Therefore, whoever follows the Jews, their traditions and their occult practices is following their father (the Devil) and carrying out his desire.  (John 8:42-46)

GIANT TETRAGRAMATON INSIDE FOREST LAKE SDA CHURCH FLORIDA

The Gnostic origin of the Tetragrammaton according to the Jewish Encyclopedia

“The “mystic quadriliteral name (Clement, “Stromata,” ed. Dindorf, iii. 25, 27) was well known to the Gnostics, as is shown by the fact that the third of the eight eons of one of their systems of creation was called “the unpronounced,” the fourth “the invisible,” and the seventh “the unnamed,” terms which are merely designations of the Tetragrammaton (Blau,l.c.p. 127). Even the Palestinian Jews had inscribed the letters of the Name on amulets (Shab. 115b; Blau,l.c.pp. 93-96); and, in view of the frequency with which the appellations of foreign deities were employed in magic, it was but natural that heathen magicians should show a especial preference for this ”great and holy name,” knowing its pronunciation as they knew the names of their own deities.” (See the Jewish Encyclopedia article on Tetragrammaton.Bold was added by this blog.

THE KYBALION

The Hermetic Philosophy of the Kybalíon comes from Hermes Trismegistus. According to the Secret Doctrine, Hermes Trismegistus was known by the Ancient Egyptians as “The Great Great” and “Master of Masters”. (The Kybalíon, A study of the Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt and Greece by Three Iniciates, The Yogi Publication Society, Masonic Temple Chicago iII, 1908)

Hermes “the god of speech” is mentioned in the Bible:

“In Lystra there sat a man crippled in his feet, who was lame from birth and had never walked.  He listened to Paul as he was speaking. Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed and called out, “Stand up on your feet!” At that, the man jumped up and began to walk.  When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, The gods have come down to us in human form!” Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker. The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city, brought bulls and wreaths to the city gates because he and the crowd wanted to offer sacrifices to them.” (Acts 14:8-13 NIV 1984)

 The Goetia Circle of Evocation

The SDA triangular symbol can also be compared to the Goetia Circle of evocation, composed by a circle within a triangle and used by magicians to evocate the 72 spirits. This symbol also known as the Tetragrammaton  or “Triangle of Salomon” (the Lesser key of Salomon), as is used by Qabbalists.  In the ritual, the magician would stand within the circle and the spirit was believed to appear within the triangle. This triangular symbol was use by the occultist and Freemason Aliester Crowley during magical rituals and spiritual ceremonies. Alister Crowley was the leader of the Secret Society “Ordo Templi Orientis”.

We may wonder why always triangular or pyramidal shapes?

The triangle is one of the most used occultic symbols. A triangle with its point downward represents the deity and is called the Deity’s Triangle, or the Water Triangle. With one point up, it is called the Earthly TrianglePyramidTriangle, or the Fire Triangle. These two definitions of the triangle are standard occult beliefs and they can be found in Masonic books like: (Shirley Plessner, Symbolism of the Eastern Star, Cleveland, Ohio, Gilbert Publishing Co., 1956, p. 18.), (Robert Macoy, Adoptive Rite Ritual, Virginia: Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply co., 1897, p. 237)

The Triange According to Mackey’s Encyclopedia of Freemasonry:

There is no symbol more important in its significance, more various in its application, or more generally diffused throughout the whole system of Freemasonry, than the triangle. An examination of it, therefore, cannot fail to be interesting to the Masonic student. 

The equilateral triangle appears to have been adopted by nearly all the nations of antiquity as a symbol of the Deity, in some of his forms or emanations, and hence, probably, the prevailing influence of this symbol was carried into the Jewish system, where the Yod within the triangle was made to represent the Tetragrammaton, or sacred name of God.” (Source: Mackey’s Encyclopedia of Freemasonry. Articles on the Triangle atMasonicdictionary.com), (Freemasons Magazine iv, page 294)

If you do a little bit of research on books of occultism like (The Secret Teachings of All Ages), you will see that these triangular shape symbols were commonly used in magical rituals for incantations and spells over groups of people and places to accomplish goals. Revelations 18:23 (NIV) tells us that ”Babylon the Harlot” would use magical spells to somehow control the nations and lead them astray.

In the book of Galatians 3:1-3, Paul also talks about the believers being bewitched by someone to make them turn away to a different gospel than the one already preached.  In the book of Isaiah 47:12 the prophet also talks about the fall of Babylon just as John in Revelations 18:23 and he describes how Babylon used spells and sorceries.  Let’s review the verses:

  • Revelations 18:23 (NIV): “The light of a lamp will never shine in you again.  The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again.  Your merchants were the world’s great men.  By your magic spell all the nations were led astray”.
  • Galatians 3:1-3 (NIV): “You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified.  I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard?  Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?”
  • Isaiah 47:12 (NIV): “Keep on, then, with your magic spells and with your many sorceries, which you have labored at since childhood.

Possible reasons why so many triangles and pyramids

According to Freemasonry in the book “The Secret Teachings of all Ages”, the pyramid will be the emblem that will unify the world.

“The Dying God shall rise again! The secret room in the House of the Hidden Places shall be rediscovered. The Pyramid again shall stand as the ideal emblem of solidarity, inspiration, aspiration, resurrection, and regeneration.  As the passing sands of time fury civilization upon civilization beneath their weight, the Pyramid shall remain as the visible covenant between Eternal Wisdom and the worldThe time may yet come when the chants of the Illumined shall be heard once more in its ancient passageways and the Master of the Hidden House shall await in the Silent Place for the coming of that man who, casting aside the fallacies of dogma and tenet, seeks simply Truth and will be satisfied with neither substitute nor counterfeit.” (Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, p.120, 2003 version, original text published in 1928) Bolds and underlines added by this website.

With that quote in mind, lets take a look at the next SDA Ministry Magazine Issue with the pyramid as an emblem of “Resurrection For a Fallen Brother.”

SDA MINISTRY MAGAZINE (MAY 2004)

Observe in the following illustration how Jacob Boehme a sixteenth century cabalist represents “God” in the shape of a Pyramid or Divine Triangle sitting on his throne.  The pyramid or triangle is an esoteric representation of “God” according to the teachings of the Cabala and commonly used in Gnosticism.

Jakob Böhme or “Jacob Boehme” (1575-1624), an Occultist, Theosophist and “Christian” mystic was able to attract through his Gnostic illustrations many diciples to the Masonic lodges of his era.

Albert Pike (1809-1891), Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry says about the Divine Triangle in the book “Morals and Dogma”:

Behold the great and Supreme Triangle of the Kabalists! Fatality, Will, and Power! Such is the magical ternary which, in human things, corresponds with the Divine Triangle.” (Albert Pike, Morals And Dogma, p. 738) bolds added

Later on in his book Morals and Dogma, Albert Pike elaborates more about the triangle as the chief masonic symbol representing the masonic deity.

The peculiar and principal symbol of this degree is the Tetracty of Pythagoras, suspended in the east, were ordinarily the sacred word of letters glitters, and, like them, representing the Deity. Its nine external points from the triangle, the chief symbol in masonry, with many of the meanings of which you are familiar. 

To us, the three sides represents the three principals attributes of the Deity, which created, and now, as ever, support, uphold, and guide the Universe and its eternal movement; the three supports the Masonic Temple, itself and emblem of the Universe: Wisdom, of the Infinity Divine Intelligence; Strength, or Power, the Infinite Divine Will; and Beauty, or the Infinity Divine Harmony…” (Albert Pike, Morals And Dogma, p. 826) bolds added

Henry Makow, author of the book ”Illuminati, The Cult That Hijacked the World”, says that all these masonic symbols are the basic components of a satanic conspiracy. A conspiracy that is attacking us with full evil force.

This satanic conspiracy, succeeds only because people cannot believe something so colossal and monstrous actually exists.” 

(Henry Makow, Lucifer is the Secret God of Secular Society - Occult Agents Control Humanity, internet, savethemales.ca, October 13, 2003)

Conclusion

It doesn’t really matter what explanation the SDA leadership can come up with, all the evidence presented proves that some how this religious institution has been borrowing concepts from occultism, Cabala, Freemasonry, Magic, mysticism, Hermeticism, Gnosticism, Alchemy, etc… In summary, all these are clear signs of spiritual prostitution going on at high levels. The question is; Is anybody even watching?

Unfortunately people refuse to believe the darkness involved in all this. They have totally underestimated the power of Satan.  They have discarded Jesus’ teachings through Paul and the rest of the apostles.  Paul warned us against this type of spiritual captivity non only in Galatians 3:1-3 but also in Colossians 2:8 saying:

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ”.  (Colossians 2:8 NIV 1984)

Since the Pioneers of Adventism, there has not been many really faithful leaders.
 
Ellen White said in her day:
 

 
The patience of God has an object, but you are defeating it. He is allowing a state of things to come that you would fain see counteracted by and by, but it will be too late. God commanded Elijah to anoint the cruel and deceitful Hazael king over Syria, that he might be a scourge to idolatrous Israel. Who knows whether God will not give you up to the deceptions you love? Who knows but that the preachers who are faithful, firm, and true may be the last who shall offer the gospel of peace to our unthankful churches? It may be that the destroyers are already training under the hand of Satan and only wait the departure of a few more standard-bearers to take their places, and with the voice of the false prophet cry, "Peace, peace," when the Lord hath not spoken peace. I seldom weep, but now I find my eyes blinded with tears; they are falling upon my paper as I write. It may be that erelong all prophesyings among us will be at an end, and the voice which has stirred the people may no longer disturb their carnal slumbers. {5T 77.1}
 

We believe the authors listed here, were faithful men.  We have been greatly blessed by their works and  that hope you too, will be blessed. 


The Enemy made Laodiceans believe they have no need of more Truth, that they have all Truth that is necessary to get them through Heaven's portals, although God has declared that they are in need of everything, and to be "spued out" (Rev. 3:16) and become the Synagogue of Satan.

In the last days Jesus will take the reins in His own hands 
"When light goes forth to lighten the earth, instead of coming up to the help of the Lord, they will want to bind about his work to meet their narrow ideas. Let me tell you that the Lord will work in this last work in a manner very much out of the common order of things, and in a way that will be contrary to any human planning. There will be those among us who will always want to control the work of God, to dictate even what movements shall be made when the work goes forward under the direction of the angel who joins the third angel in the message to be given to the world. God will use ways and means by which it will be seen that he is taking the reins in his own hands.. The workers will be surprised by the simple means that he will use to bring about and perfect his work of righteousness. Those who are accounted good workers will need to draw nigh to God, they will need the divine touch. They will need to drink more deeply and continuously at the fountain of living water, in order that they may discern God’s work at every point. Workers may make mistakes, but you should give them an opportunity to learn caution by leaving the work in their hands." "--{The Paulson Collection of Ellen G. White Letters, p. 381.1}

Salvation Through The Modern Seventh-Day Adventist Church?

 If you check God’s Word on this subject, you will not find a single verse requiring one to go through a church to be saved. In fact, the opposite is taught:

             “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

 When Jesus died on the cross, He paid the full price for the sins of mankind. According to God’s Word, anyone can go directly to Him for salvation. Jesus Himself announced that:

             “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not             see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 3:36

 Jesus preached:

            “He that hearth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life…” John 5:24

             “He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” John 6:47

Jesus repeats this message in John 3:16, 3:18, and 6:40. If the Seventh-Day Adventist church or any church/denomination is really necessary for salvation, then Jesus Christ is a liar.

 The Apostle Paul gives step by step instructions on how to be saved:
 

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. {KJV} Romans 10:9-10

 Notice, no church is required. So if modern Adventism is right, then the Apostle Paul is also a liar. And Since he wrote under inspiration of the “Holy” Spirit, the “Holy” Spirit of Jesus {Jesus Eze 36:27} is a liar as well.

 The Apostle John teaches:
 

"But as many as received {trusted in} him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:"{KJV} John 1:12

 John says you become God’s child by believing in Jesus Christ. If this modern {1888 and forward} Adventism is true, then John’s name must be added to the list of liars.

 But John is not a liar. Jesus never requires a church for salvation:

             "To him {Jesus} give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins." {KJV} Acts 10:43

 The key is belief in Christ, not a church:

             "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;…." {KJV} Romans 1:16

 According to Paul, Timothy needed faith in Christ to be saved, not a church:

             "And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus." 2 Timothy 3:15

 When the Philippian prison guard asked Paul, “What must I do to be saved?” did Paul answer, “You must become a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist church?” No, he responded:

             “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…” Acts 16:31

 Remember when Jesus was hanging on the cross? The thief on the cross next to Him cried out:

             “…Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.” Luke 23:42

 When that dying sinner uttered those words of faith, Jesus responded by saying:
 

"And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee today,...thou be with me in paradise." {KJV} Luke 23:43

Salvation is in Christ…not in a church. God’s Word says it is obtained through Jesus Christ:

 

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." {KJV} Romans 6:23

 

"In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him." {KJV} 1 John 4:9 

Only Christ can offer us salvation because He alone shed His blood for us:
 

"Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him." {KJV} Romans 5:9 

No church can offer salvation. Only Jesus can: 

            "Neither is there salvation in any other {except Jesus}: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." {KJV} Acts 4:12
 

"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." {KJV} Acts 2:38
 

"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him." {KJV} Colossians 3:17


"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." {KJV} John 17:3

 Conclusion: Since the Bible and modern Adventism clearly disagree, here are some questions you must answer:

 ·         If the modern Adventist church is necessary to escape eternal death and reach Heaven, would not God have clearly stated it in His Word…at least once?

·         Why would Jesus repeatedly lie by saying that salvation is available through faith in Him?

·         Are you willing to call Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul and the Apostle John all liars? For your religion to be right you must.

·         For centuries, Bible believing Christians have contended that this unbiblical doctrine was created to keep members in bondage. Was it?

·         Lastly, you must answer the question, “Which will I obey and serve, the traditions of men, or the Word of God?” You cannot say “both” because each says the other is wrong.

 Someday you will stand face to face with Jesus Christ. You will look Him right in the eyes. You might want to start thinking about how you are going to tell the Lord that you rejected His teachings and obeyed the tradition of sinful men because you assumed He was lying.

             “For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men… Mark 7:8

Jesus promises us, if we invite Him into our mind: "And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them" {Eze 36:27}.


The Church Issue

 

              Who and What is “The Church”?

 

1.                 “I was shown that those who are trying to obey God and purifying their souls through obedience to the truth are God’s chosen people, His modern Israel”. 2T-109.

2.                 “There is no other church than the assembly of those who have the word of God, and who are purified by it. Adventists, seeing that the churches rejected the testimony of God’s word, could no longer regard them as constituting the church of Christ.” 4 SP-237.

3.     “God has a church. It is not the great cathedrals, neither is it the national establishment, neither is it the various denominationsit is the people who love God and keep His commandments. ‘Where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them’. Matthew 18:20. Where Christ is even among the humble few, this is Christ’s church, for the presence of the High and Holy One who inhabiteth eternity can alone constitute a church.” 
Upward Look, 315.
 

Who and What is The Church?
 The Church is, those who are trying to obey God and purifying their souls through obedience to the truth”, “those who have the word of God, and who are purified by it”, “the people who love God and keep His commandments.” With this as our definition of Who and What The Church is, we can then decide who is NOT The Church. We will look at that later in this study.


Once “The Church”, Always “The Church”?

1. “The Jewish people cherished the idea that they were the favorites of heaven, and that they were always to be exalted as the church of God. They were the children of Abraham, they declared, and so firm did the foundation of their prosperity seem to them that they defied earth and heaven to dispose them of their rights. But by lives of unfaithfulness they were preparing for the condemnation of heaven and for separation from God....

Solemnly and regretfully Christ asked, “Did ye never read in the Scriptures, “The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner; this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, the
 kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.”

As a people the Jews had failed of fulfilling God’s purpose, and the vineyard was taken from them. The privileges they had abused, the work they had slighted, was entrusted to others.

                                    THE CHURCH OF TODAY


The parable of the vineyard applies not alone to the Jewish nation. It has a lesson for us.  The church in this generation has been endowed by God with Great privileges and blessings, and He expects corresponding returns...

Shall the warnings from God be passed by unheeded? Shall the opportunities for service be unimproved? Shall the world’s scorn, the pride of reason, conformity to human customs and traditions, hold the professed followers of Christ from service to Him? Will they reject God’s word as the Jewish leaders rejected Christ? The result of Israel’s sin is before us. Will the church of today take warning?
 

If some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; boast not...Because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear; for if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest He also spare not thee.” Romans 11:17-21.” 
Christ Object Lessons, pg. 294-306.

2. “The sins and iniquities of rebellious Israel are recorded and the picture presented before us as a warning that if we imitate their example of transgression and depart from God we shall fall as surely as did they.” 1T-608, 609

3. 
Satan’s snares are laid for us as verily as they were laid for the children of Israel just prior to their entrance into the land of Canaan. We are repeating the history of that people. Lightness, vanity, love of ease and pleasure, selfishness, and impurity are increasing among us. There is need now of men who are firm and fearless in declaring the whole counsel of God; men who will not sleep as do others, but watch and be sober.” 5T-160.

4. 
“...The world must not be introduced into the church, and married to the church, forming a bond of unity. Through this means the church will become indeed corrupt, and as stated in Revelation, ‘A cage of every unclean and hateful bird.’” Testimonies to Ministers-265.

. “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 work.  When a church proves unfaithful to the Lord, whatever their position may be, however high and sacred their calling, the Lord can no longer work with them. Others are then chosen to bear important responsibilities. But, if these in turn do not purify their lives from every wrong action, if they do not establish pure and holy principles in all their borders, then the Lord will grievously afflict and humble them and, unless they repent, will remove them from their place and make them a reproach....” 
Manuscript 33, April 27, 1903.

. “The Jews had misinterpreted God’s promise of eternal favor to Israel: “Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is His name: If those ordinances depart from before Me, saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord.” Jer. 31:35-37. The Jews regarded their natural descent from Abraham as giving them a claim to this promise. But they overlooked the conditions which God had specified. Before giving the promise, He had said, “I will put My law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be My people...For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” Jer. 31:33,34.

To a people in whose hearts His law is written, the favor of God is assured. They are one with Him. But the Jews had separated themselves from GodBecause of their sins they were suffering under His judgments. This was the cause of their bondage to a heathen nation. Their minds were darkened by transgression, and because in times past the Lord had shown them so great favor, they excused their sins. They flattered themselves that they were better than other men, and entitled to His blessings.

These things “are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” 1 Cor. 10:11. How often we misinterpret God’s blessings, and flatter ourselves that we are favored on account of some goodness in us! God cannot do for us that which He longs to do. His gifts are used to increase our self-satisfaction, and to harden our hearts in unbelief and sin.” DA-106.

7. Yet in their blind and blasphemous presumption the instigators of this hellish work publicly declared that they had no fear that Jerusalem would be destroyed, for it was God’s own city. To establish their power more firmly, they bribed false prophets to proclaim, even while Roman legions were besieging the temple, that the people were to wait for deliverance from God. To the last, multitudes held fast to the belief that the Most High would interpose for the defeat of their adversaries. But Israel had spurned the divine protection, and now she had no defense.” GC-29.   

8. “The Lord is testing and proving you. He has counseled, admonished, and entreated. All these solemn admonitions will either make the church better or decidedly worse. The oftener the Lord speaks to correct or counsel, and you disregard His voice, the more disposed will you be to reject it again and again, till God says: "Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out My hand, and no man regarded; but ye have set at nought all My counsel, and would none of My reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; when your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon Me, but I will not answer; they shall seek Me early, but they shall not find me; for that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: they would none of My counsel: they despised all My reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices." 5T 72.

9. “I have been shown that the spirit of the world is fast leavening the church. You are following the same path as did ancient Israel. There is the same falling away from your holy calling as God's peculiar people. You are having fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Your concord with unbelievers has provoked the Lord's displeasure. You know not the things that belong to your peace, and they are fast being hid from your eyes. Your neglect to follow the light will place you in a more unfavorable position than the Jews upon whom Christ pronounced a woe.  5T-75.

10.       I have been shown that unbelief in the testimonies has been steadily increasing as the people backslide from God. It is all through our ranks, all over the field. But few know what our churches are to experience. I saw that at present we are under divine forbearance, but no one can say how long this will continue. No one knows how great the mercy that has been exercised toward us. But few are heartily devoted to God. There are only a few who, like the stars in a tempestuous night, shine here and there among the clouds. 5T 76. 

11.    “When God shall work His strange work on the earth, when holy hands bear the ark no longer, woe will be upon the people. Oh, that thou hadst known, even thou, in this thy day, the things that belong unto thy peace! Oh, that our people may, as did Nineveh, repent with all their might and believe with all their heart, that God may turn away His fierce anger from them.” 5T 77.
 
12.    “Our only safety is to stand as God's peculiar people. We must not yield one inch to the customs and fashions of this degenerate age, but stand in moral independence, making no compromise with its corrupt and idolatrous practices.” 5T 78.

13.   “The light has been shining clear and definite upon her pathway, and the light of 1882 calls her to an account. If her talents are unimproved, if her fruit is not perfect before God, if her light has become darkness, she is indeed found wanting. The knowledge of our state as God views it, seems to be hidden from us. We see, but perceive not; we hear, but do not understand; and we rest as unconcerned as if the pillar of cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night, rested upon our sanctuary. We profess to know God, and to believe the truth, but in works deny HimOur deeds are directly adverse to the principles of truth and righteousness, by which we profess to be governed.” 5T 83.

14.    “Are you not halting between two opinions? Are you not neglecting to heed the light which God has given you? Take heed lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God. You know not the time of your visitation. The great sin of the Jews was that of neglecting and rejecting present opportunities. As Jesus views the state of His professed followers today, He sees base ingratitude, hollow formalism, hypocritical insincerity, pharisaical pride and apostasy.” 5T 72. 

15.    “For years the Lord has been presenting the situation of the church before you. Again and again reproofs and warnings have been given. October 23, 1879, the Lord gave me a most impressive testimony in regard to the church in Battle Creek. During the last months I was with you I carried a heavy burden for the church, while those who should have felt to the very depths of their souls were comparatively easy and unconcerned. I knew not what to do or what to say. I had no confidence in the course which many were pursuing, for they were doing the very things which the Lord had warned them not to do.”  5T 63. 

16.   “How is the faithful city become a harlot. My father’s house is made a house of merchandise, a place whence the divine presence and glory have departed ....unless the church which is now being leavened with her own backsliding shall repent and be converted she will eat of the fruit of her own doing until she abhor herself.” April 21, 1903. 8T-250.   See Series B, pg. 48 & 49, 1904.

17.   “As I was made to understand something of the management of the work in this great center, it was all that I could bear. My spirit was pained within me, for I had lost confidence in that which I had ever presented before the people as the voice of God to His children. It has not been the voice of God. There has been a lording power exercised over God's heritage in decisions which were not dictated by the Spirit of God. Unconsecrated men who were brought in connection with the work have exercised their own wisdom, and have woven into the work their own unconverted peculiarities. Their own principles have been counterworking the principles of truth and righteousness. We cannot therefore present before the people that the voice of the General Conference in its decisions must move and control them; for its propositions and decisions cannot be accepted. They are not in the right line of progress. God is cropped out of their counsels.

.  Those who have questioned the policy of the lines pursued have been in the way of these supposed wise counselors' accomplishing all that they desired, and some have been instructed that their talents were needed in some other place. They have been recommended to secure a healthful and better climate. 17MR 222.

 

18. For years the Lord has given light which is unheeded. Men may fast and pray and have every appearance of sanctity, but it will disappear as frost before the sun if they continue to dishonor God as Eli dishonored Him in sanctioning wrong influences and accepting wrong principles, and turning from the light that God has given. 17MR 230.

 

19.   The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-day Adventists, and that this reformation would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. Were this reformation to take place, what would result? The principles of truth that God in His wisdom has given to the remnant church, would be discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last fifty years would be accounted as error. A new organization would be established. Books of a new order would be written. A system of intellectual philosophy would be introduced. The founders of this system would go into the cities, and do a wonderful work. The Sabbath of course, would be lightly regarded, as also the God who created it. Nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the new movement. The leaders would teach that virtue is better than vice, but God being removed, they would place their dependence on human power, which, without God, is worthless. Their foundation would be built on the sand, and storm and tempest would sweep away the structure.   1 Selected Messages, pg.204,205.

20.  The voice from Battle Creek, which has been regarded as authority in counseling how the work should be done, is no longer the voice of God.--17MR 185 (1896). LDE 50.

21.  It has been some years since I have considered the General Conference as the voice of God.--17MR 216 (1898). LDE 50.

22.  That these men should stand in a sacred place, to be as the voice of God to the people, as we once believed the General Conference to be--that is past.--GCB April 3, 1901, p. 25. LDE 50. 

23. The watchmen upon the walls of Zion should have been the first to catch the tidings of the Saviour's advent, the first to lift their voices to proclaim Him near, the first to warn the people to prepare for His coming. But they were at ease, dreaming of peace and safety, while the people were asleep in their sins. Jesus saw His church, like the barren fig tree, covered with pretentious leaves, yet destitute of precious fruit. There was a boastful observance of the forms of religion, while the spirit of true humility, penitence, and faith--which alone could render the service acceptable to God--was lacking. Instead of the graces of the Spirit there were manifested pride, formalism, vainglory, selfishness, oppression. A backsliding church closed their eyes to the signs of the times. God did not forsake them, or suffer His faithfulness to fail; but they departed from Him, and separated themselves from His love. As they refused to comply with the conditions, His promises were not fulfilled to them.

Such is the sure result of neglect to appreciate and improve the light and privileges which God bestows. Unless the church will follow on in His opening providence, accepting every ray of light, performing every duty which may be revealed, religion will inevitably degenerate into the observance of forms, and the spirit of vital godliness will disappear. This truth has been repeatedly illustrated in the history of the church. God requires of His people works of faith and obedience corresponding to the blessings and privileges bestowed. Obedience requires a sacrifice and involves a cross; and this is why so many of the professed followers of Christ refused to receive the light from heaven, and, like the Jews of old, knew not the time of their visitation. Luke 19:44Because of their pride and unbelief the Lord passed them by and revealed His truth to those who, like the shepherds of Bethlehem and the Eastern Magi, had given heed to all the light they had received
GC 316. 

24. God designs that the plan of redemption shall come to His people as the latter rain, for they are fast losing their connection with God. ...Angels have desired to look into the truths which are revealed to the people who are searching God's Word and with contrite hearts praying for wisdom, for greater lengths and breadths and heights of that knowledge which God alone can give.--Ms 75, 1899, p. 4. (Untitled, May 11, 1899.)

25. The more and increased light God has given makes the receiver more responsible. It does not place the receiver in any safer position unless the privileges are wisely improved, prized, and used to advance God's glory. Christ said, "Woe unto thee, Chorazin! Woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes" Matthew 11:21.

When Jerusalem was divorced from God it was because of her sins. She fell from an exalted height that Tyre and Sidon had never reached. And when an angel falls he becomes a fiend. The depth of our ruin is measured by the exalted light to which God has raised us in His great goodness and unspeakable mercy. Oh, what privileges are granted to us as a people! And if God spared not His people that He loved, because they refused to walk in the light, how can He spare the people whom He has blessed with the light of heaven in having opened to them the most exalted truth ever entrusted to mortal man to give to the world? 12MR 319. } 

26. In this step there has been a change of responsibility, but the wrong principles remain unchanged. The same work that has been done in the past will be carried forward under the guise of the General Conference Association. The sacred character of this Association is fast disappearing. What will then be respected as pure, holy, and undefiled? Will there be any voice that God's people can regard as a voice they can respect? There certainly is nothing now that bears the divine credentials. Sacred things are mixed and mingled with earthly business that has no connection with God. Spalding & Magan Collection, pg. 35.
 

27.     Many of our people are lukewarm. They occupy the position of Meroz, neither for nor against, neither cold nor hot. They hear the words of Christ, but do them not. If they remain in this state, He will reject them with abhorrence. Many of those who have had great light, great opportunities, and every spiritual advantage praise Christ and the world with the same breath. They bow themselves before God and mammon. They make merry with the children of the world, and yet claim to be blessed with the children of God. They wish to have Christ as their Savior, but will not bear the cross and wear His yoke. May the Lord have mercy upon you; for if you go on in this way, nothing but evil can be prophesied concerning you. 5T 76.

 

28. The patience of God has an object, but you are defeating it. He is allowing a state of things to come that you would fain see counteracted by and by, but it will be too late. God commanded Elijah to anoint the cruel and deceitful Hazael king over Syria, that he might be a scourge to idolatrous Israel. Who knows whether God will not give you up to the deceptions you love? Who knows but that the preachers who are faithful, firm, and true may be the last who shall offer the gospel of peace to our unthankful churches? It may be that the destroyers are already training under the hand of Satan and only wait the departure of a few more standard-bearers to take their places, and with the voice of the false prophet cry, "Peace, peace," when the Lord hath not spoken peace. I seldom weep, but now I find my eyes blinded with tears; they are falling upon my paper as I write. It may be that erelong all prophesyings among us will be at an end, and the voice which has stirred the people may no longer disturb their carnal slumbers5T 77.

 


Separation

1. “The Sanhedrin had rejected Christ’s message and was bent upon His death; therefore Jesus departed from Jerusalem, from the priests, the temple, the religious leaders, the people who had been instructed in the law, and turned to another class to proclaim His message, and to gather out those who should carry the gospel to all nations.

     “As the light and life of men was rejected by the ecclesiastical authorities in the days of Christ, so it has been rejected in every succeeding generation. Again and again the history of Christ’s withdrawal from Judea has been repeated. When the Reformers preached the word of God, they had no thought of separating themselves from the established church; but the religious leaders would not tolerate the light, and those that bore it were forced to seek another class, who were longing for the truth. In our day few of the professed followers of the Reformers are actuated by their spirit. Few are listening for the voice of God, and ready to accept truth in whatever guise it may be presented. Often those who follow in the steps of the Reformers are forced to turn away from the churches they love, in order to declare the plain teaching of the word of God. And many times those who are seeking for light are by the same teaching obliged to leave the church of their fathers, that they may render obedience.” DA-232.

“If the church becomes lukewarm it does not stand in favor with God anymore, than do the churches that are represented as having “fallen and become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” Rev. 18:2Letter 35.

3. “To parents He sends the warning cry: Gather your children into our own houses; gather them away from those who are disregarding the commandments of God, who are teaching and practicing evil.” 6T-195.

4. “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof; from such turn away.” 2Tim. 3:5

5. “As the men of Israel witnessed the corrupt course of the priests, they thought it safer for their families not to come up to the appointed place of worship. Many went from Shiloh with peace disturbed, their indignation aroused, until they at last determined to offer their sacrifices themselves, concluding that this would be fully as acceptable to God, as to sanction in any manner the abominations practiced in the sanctuary.” 2BC-1010.

6. “So many have brought into the church their own unsubdued spirit, unrefined; their spiritual taste is perverted by their own immoral, debasing, corruptions, symbolizing the world in spirit, in heart, in purpose, confirming themselves in lustful practices and are full of deception through and through in their professed Christian lie. Living as sinners, claiming to be Christians. Those who claim to be Christians and will confess Christ should come out from among them and touch not the unclean thing, and be separate...” ChS-41.

7. “But there is no union between the Prince of light and the prince of darkness, and there can be no union between their followers. When Christians consented to unite with those who were but half converted from paganism, they entered upon a path which led further and further from the truth. Satan exulted that he had succeeded in deceiving so large a umber of the followers of Christ. He then brought his power to bear more fully upon these, and inspired them to persecute those who remained true to God. None understood so well how to oppose the true Christian faith as did those who had once been its defenders; and these apostate Christians, uniting with their half-pagan companions, directed their warfare against the most essential features of the doctrines of Christ.
     “It required a desperate struggle for those who would be faithful to stand firm against the deceptions and abominations which were disguised in sacerdotal garments and introduced into the church. The Bible was not accepted as the standard of faith. The doctrine of religious freedom was termed heresy, and its upholders were hated and proscribed. 
    “After a long and severe conflict, the faithful few decided to dissolve all union with the apostate church if she still refused to free herself from falsehood and idolatry. They saw that separation was an absolute necessity if they would obey the word of God. They dared not tolerate errors fatal to their own souls, and set an example which would imperil the faith of their children and children’s children. To secure peace and unity they were ready to make any concession consistent with fidelity to God; but they felt that even peace would be too dearly purchased at the sacrifice of principle. If unity could be secured only by the compromise of truth and righteousness, then let there be difference, and even war.” GC-45.

8. “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 truthSatan 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. He hopes to deceive the honest and lead them to think that God is still working for the churches. But the light will shine, and all who are honest will leave the fallen churches, and take their stand with the remnant.” EW-261.

9. “It is impossible for anyone to become a true follower of Jesus Christ, without distinguishing himself from the worldly mass of unbelievers. If the world would accept of Jesus, then there would be no sword of dissension; for all would be disciples of Christ and in fellowship one with another, and their unity would be unbroken. But this is not the case. Here and there an individual member of a family is true to the convictions of his conscience, and is compelled to stand alone in his family or in the church to which he belongs, and is finally compelled, because of the course of those with whom he associates, to separate himself from their companionship. The line of demarcation is made distinct. One stand upon the word of God, the others upon the traditions and sayings of men.” 
3 R&H, 169. July 24, 1894.


10. “It is a solemn statement that I make to the church, that not one in twenty whose names are registered upon the church books are prepared to close their earthly history, and would be as verily without God and without hope in the world as the common sinner. They are professedly serving God, but they are more earnestly serving mammon. This half-and-half work is a constant denying of Christ, rather than a confessing of Christ. So many have brought into the church their own unsubdued spirit, unrefined; their spiritual taste is perverted by their own immoral, debasing corruptions, symbolizing the world in spirit, in heart, in purpose, confirming themselves in lustful practices, and are full of deception through and through in their professed Christian life. Living as sinners, claiming to be Christians! Those who claim to be Christians and will confess Christ should come out from among them and touch not the unclean thing, and be separate .

     I lay down my pen and lift up my soul in prayer, that the Lord would breathe upon His backslidden people, who are as dry bones, that they may live. The end is near, stealing upon us so stealthily, so imperceptibly, so noiselessly, like the muffled tread of the thief in the night, to surprise the sleepers off guard and unready. May the Lord grant to bring His Holy Spirit upon hearts that are now at ease, that they may no longer sleep as do others, but watch and be sober.--General Conference Bulletin, 1893, pp. 132, 133. ChS 41. 

11.   “Now, those who have had years in this same experience, know not God nor Jesus Christ whom He has sent, and should such go forth as representatives of Jesus Christ? These men will never give the right mold to other minds; they have not grown up to the full stature of men and women in Christ. They simply have the name of Christians but are not fitted for the work of God, and never will be until they are born again, and learn the A.B.C. in true religion of Jesus Christ. There is a little hope in one direction: Take the young men and women, and place them where they will come as little in contact with our churches as possible, that the low grade of piety which is current in this day shall not leaven their ideas of what it means to be a Christian.” Manuscript Releases, Vol 12. pg. 333.

12.   “I was confirmed in all I had stated in Minneapolis, that a reformation must go through the churches. Reforms must be made, for spiritual weakness and blindness were upon the people who had been blessed with great light and precious opportunities and privileges. As reformers they had come out of the denominational churches, but they now act a part similar to that which the churches acted. We hoped that there would not be the necessity for another coming out. While we will endeavor to keep the "unity of the Spirit" in the bonds of peace, we will not with pen or voice cease to protest against bigotry.”   Ellen G White 1888 Materials, pg. 356.

15.   “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof; from such turn away.” 2 Timothy 3:5.

6.   The state of the Church represented by the foolish virgins is also spoken of as the Laodiceans state. The True Witness declares, "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would that thou wert cold or hot.So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked; I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye-salve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten; be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in the throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne." Review & Herald, August 19, 1890.

17. The mighty shaking has commenced and will go on, and all will be shaken out who are not willing to take a bold and unyielding stand for the truth and to sacrifice for God and His cause. The angel said, "Think ye that any will be compelled to sacrifice? No, no. It must be a freewill offering. It will take all to buy the field." I cried to God to spare His people, some of whom were fainting and dying. Then I saw that the judgments of the Almighty were speedily coming, and I begged of the angel to speak in his language to the people. Said he, "All the thunders and lightnings of Mount Sinai would not move those who will not be moved by the plain truths of the Word of God, neither would an angel's message awake them." {EW 50.3}

 


Quotes That Appear to Teach that the 
Organized Church is Going Through


1. “Satan will work his miracles to deceive; he will set up his power as supreme. The church may appear as about to fall, but it does not fall. It remains, while the sinners in Zion will be sifted out--the chaff separated from the precious wheat. This is a terrible ordeal, but nevertheless it must take place. None but those who have been overcoming by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony will be found with the loyal and true, without spot or stain of sin, without guile in their mouths. We must be divested of our self-righteousness and arrayed in the righteousness of Christ.”    2 Selected Messages, pg. 380. 

Comments: The Organized Church doesn’t even teach “overcoming” any more... Obviously, it is not the Organized SDA Church that she is referring to –

2There is no need to doubt, to be fearful that the work will not succeed. God is at the head of the work, and He will set everything in order. If matters need adjusting at the head of the work God will attend to that, and work to right every wrong. Let us have faith that God is going to carry the noble ship which bears the people of God safely into port”. --2SM 390 (1892).

Comments:  We must remember that “the people of God” are those who are striving to overcome sin, those who are walking in the light...those who are not compromising and becoming more like the world. Therefore, this quote does not apply, cannot apply, to the organized Church.

3.   “Has God no living church? He has a church, but it is the church militant, not the church triumphant. We are sorry that there are defective members, that there are tares amid the wheat. . . . Although there are evils existing in the church, and will be until the end of the world, the church in these last days is to be the light of the world that is polluted and demoralized by sin. The church, enfeebled and defective, needing to be reproved, warned, and counseled, is the only object upon earth upon which Christ bestows His supreme regard.”--TM 45, 49 (1893).

Comments: Tares are not those who are living in “open sin”. Tares are people who look like, act like and talk like Christians – like Judas. The disciples thought he was one of them, but Jesus read his heart. The church today is full of “open sinners”... Jesus taught that those living in open sin must be separated from the church if they refused to repent. But tares, those were to remain until the harvest.

4.   “Again I say, The Lord hath not spoken by any messenger who calls the church that keeps the commandments of God, Babylon. True, there are tares with the wheat; but Christ said He would send His angels to first gather the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into the garner. I know that the Lord loves His church. It is not to be disorganized or broken up into independent atoms. There is not the least consistency in this; there is not the least evidence that such a thing will be. Those who shall heed this false message and try to leaven others will be deceived and prepared to receive advanced delusions, and they will come to naught.” 2 Selected Messages, pg. 68.

Comments: The church that should not be called Babylon is clearly set forth – as “the church that keeps the commandments of God”. (And that doesn’t just mean that they come together at church on Sabbath.)



 'I know thy works, thou art neither cold nor hot; I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:' {Rev. 3:15-17}

 Revelation 2:9, "I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, {but thou art rich} and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews [professed Adventists], and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan."

 Revelation 3:17, "Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:"

 Revelation 3:9, "Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews [professed Adventists], and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee."

 Revelation 3:16, "So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."

 The fault of this church was that it had become lukewarm. It had lost its warmth and zeal for God. This happened for three reasons:

 {1} Self-satisfaction or complacency, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.

 {2} Rich in truth having great light, but rashly (foolishly) denying the power of the bright light that had brought us out of false doctrines, "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." 2 Timothy 3:5. The Jews denied Jesus and crucified Him, the corpus modern SDA church rejected Jesus in 1888 and waxed stronger in apostasy from the alpha to the omega in rejecting the truth about God, the sanctuary, rejecting that we can be sin free, doctrines held by the early SDA pioneers.

 {3} Lack of understanding regarding their own state. 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!” These ideas are promoted more heavily in officialdom than I can ever recall. One must wonder, are they having a problem?

“Those ministers who are men pleasers, who cry, Peace, peace, when God has not spoken peace, might well humble their hearts before God, asking pardon for their insincerity and their lack of moral courage. It is not from love for their neighbors that they smooth down the message entrusted to them, but because they are self-indulgent and ease-loving. True love seeks first the honor of God and the salvation of souls. Those who have this love will not evade the truth to save themselves from the unpleasant results of plain speaking. When souls are in peril, God's ministers will not consider self, but will speak the word given them to speak, refusing to excuse or palliate evil.” RH, Mar. 25, 1890.

 "An apprehensive female traveler approaching the gangway of an enormous new passenger liner gazes up in amazement at its looming hulk.  "Is this ship really unsinkable?" she nervously inquires of a nearby deck hand. "Yes, lady," the deck hand answers. "God himself could not sink this ship." This scene is a familiar tableau from the Titanic saga, a simple and effective invocation of our familiar image of a ship everyone was so sure was unsinkable that it carried only enough lifeboats to seat a third of its complement.  But the Titanic was obviously not unsinkable.  In fact, it wasn't as unsinkable as the engineering of the era allowed, and it was less "unsinkable" than a ship constructed over half a century earlier." Titanic History http://www.snopes.com/history/titanic/unsinkable.asp

 Is there any "ring of truth" to "'it was less "unsinkable than a ship constructed over a half a century earlier.'"? Without a doubt, the ship our pioneers constructed, over half a century earlier; as "unsinkable" Bible built foundation of doctrine, with the living God's help; was less sinkable than today's new modern changed "sinkable or shipwreck of faith" foundational doctrines.


“The assertion, "I am saved, I am saved," does not prove that the soul (or church) is saved or sanctified. Many who are greatly excited are told that they are sanctified, when they have no intelligent idea of what the term means; for they know not the Scriptures nor the power of God. They flatter themselves that they are in conformity to the will of God, because they feel happy; but when they are tested, when the word of God is brought to bear upon their experience, they stop their ears from hearing the truth, saying, "I am sanctified," and that puts an end to the controversy. They will have nothing to do with searching the Scriptures to know what is truth, and prove that they are fearfully self-deceived.” –{RH, March 25, 1902 par. 8} 

 The spiritual state of the Laodicean church was 'neither cold nor hot...wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked' Therefore Jesus says, ‘I will spue thee out of my mouth' {Rev. 3:15-17}. This shows that the church this represents will cease to be in the Body of Christ or Christ Himself. 

 Not only is Laodicea spewed out, but it has become the synagogue of Satan; therefore, God does not recognize Laodicea as a professed Christian church when Jesus comes. "And thou, Capernaum [Seventh-day Adventists, who have had great light], which art exalted unto heaven [in point of privilege], SHALL BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL…”  --{Review and Herald, vol 3, p 69-70, August 1, 1893, [Brackets by Ellen White]} In these words of denunciation a solemn warning is given TO THE CHURCHES OF TODAYHow is the faithful city (SDA church) become an harlot.” How have those who have had every opportunity to know the truth become defiled with the corruptions of the ungodly.” –{RH August 1, 1899, Art. A, par. 6}

“My people have been lost sheep: their shepherds {church leaders} have caused them to go astray...they have forgotten their resting place {in God alone}....Remove out of the midst of Babylon...Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity....My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord.” –{Jeremiah 50:6, 8, 51:6, 45.}

 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." Ephesians 5:11.

 "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.

 "Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord." Isaiah 52:11

 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." –{Ellen G. White, in Spirit of Prophecy, vol 4, p 424 or Great Controversy, p 606-607}.

1902 -- "What a wonderful work could have been done for the vast company gathered in Battle Creek at the general conference of 1901, if the leaders of our work had taken themselves in hand.  But the work that all heaven was waiting to do as soon as men prepared the way was not done; for the leaders closed and bolted the door against the Spirit's entrance....The doors were barred against the Heavenly Current that would have swept away all evil...They built themselves up in wrong doing, and said to the Spirit of God, 'Go thy way for this time; when I have a more convenient season, I will call for thee.'"  Battle Creek Letters, p 55-56 {Letter 123, August 23, 1902}. Notice the leaders closed and bolted the door against JESUS, the Son of God! Are we  doing the same thing today?

 1893 -- [Seventh-day Adventists, who have had great light], which art exalted unto heaven [in point of privilege], SHALL BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL…” {ST, May 8, 1893 par. 1}  That statement is found on the first page of the first chapter of The Great Controversy. Then on page 25 of that same chapter, we find that she called the destruction of Jerusalem a prefigure of one to come involving the destruction of the world but beginning at His Church, His Sanctuary, Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 211.  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 has remembered her iniquities." Revelation 14:9-11, 18:1-5.

 Then we found that Ellen White said that Ezekiel 9 would have another literal fulfillment: 

 "Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel. These words will be literally fulfilled yet the time is passing, and the people are asleep. They refuse to humble their souls and to be converted. Not a great while longer will the Lord bear with the people who have such great and important truths revealed to them, but who refuse to bring these truths into their individual experience. The time is short. God is calling will YOU hear? Will YOU receive His message? Will YOU be converted before it is too late? Soon, very soon, every case will be decided for eternity.” Letter 106, 1909, pp. 2, 3, 5, 7. {To "The churches in Oakland and Berkeley, September 26, 1909.}" E. G. White Manuscript Releases Volume One, p. 260.


These two sins -- trust in man, and desire to exalt self -- are still the leading sin elements now here on earth . . . .

The religious leaders, the Pharisees, well understood that Christ was a “teacher come from God” bringing the truth. They still called Him a blasphemer, drunkard, heretic, seditionist, bastard, ignorant, demon-possessed, false prophet and more—and crucified Him!

Many people see the plain truth of the Bible, yet choose to ignore it in order to hold to their own traditions (Mark 7:7) and ideas!


Seventh-day Adventists: Yoked with the United Nations

The Seventh-day Adventist Church hierarchy is yoked with the United Nations and their interests are represented there:

Liaison Office to the United Nations is based at the Church's world headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA. It serves to both communicate and represent the Church at the UN and also to inform the Church of UN activities of importance and interest. (1)

(Jan 6, 2004 – Geneva: New Intern Office to Serve United Nations Commission on Human Rights ... of Andrews University, will serve in Geneva for the next seven to 10 months as U.N. liaison officer. ... Silver Spring Maryland, ANN Staff) The church's membership with the UN, which is the "one-world government" of the Beast power that the church USED TO preach against! 

Seventh-day Adventist leaders partner with the United Nations in many UN-sponsored activities:


The Church benefits from such representation and recommendations, and seeks to partner where appropriate in UN-sponsored activities such a literacy development, humanitarian aid, human rights education, anti-narcotic drug programs, and conventions and declarations of mutual interest such as trafficking in people, children's issues, preventive health, AIDS programs, pollution control, combating intolerance etc. (2)


Indeed, the SDA Church and the United Nations globalists have common goals:


Much of the work of the Church is appreciated and endorsed since it parallels the aims and objectives of the UN as outlined in the UN Charter. (3)


The Seventh Day Adventist high-ranking officials believe that much can be accomplished via their association with the United Nations and consider their work with the UN an essential part of their witness to the world:

  • The UN Liaison work is considered an essential part of the Church's witness to the wider world, and also provides the Church with updated and relevant information on programs and plans of the international community. (4)
  • What kind of witness is the SDA Church accomplishing via their yoke with the United Nations? The United Nations was founded for the purpose of implementing the New Age/World Order. It is revealing that a religious organization that claims to be "the Remnant Church" considers their work with high-level globalists an essential part of their witness to the world.
  • Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  2nd Corinthians 6:14
  • The Seventh-day Adventist Church falsely presents the United Nations as a benign organization when in fact it is a major vehicle for the one world government of the Beast.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20


When in 1980 the mystery of the trinity was officially voted in as a Fundamental Belief of the Seventh-Day Adventist church, to my knowledge no one in any official capacity with the church ever told the full membership what that doctrine means for our faith or how it was to be applied practically in our lives.  Now it simply just exists and those that support the doctrine have basically had to fend for themselves in how to apply it.

In almost every way the doctrine shows up in Adventist theology or application it has been borrowed from other faith traditions because they have had the concept for centuries. This is why Ryan Bell, pastor of the Hollywood California Seventh-Day Adventist church could exclaim, “Adventism is not known for it's strong Trinitarian roots. I have learned Trinitarian spirituality from my Christian sisters and brothers of other faiths, not least Orthodox Christians.”

To tap into this “Trinitarian spirituality” a growing number in the church and even whole congregations have started following the liturgical calendar which includes what they call “Trinity Sabbath.” This special “Sabbath” is modeled after the liturgical feast day Trinity Sunday, which Pope Gregory IX instituted in 828 CE. This day is notable for being the only major Christian festival that celebrates a doctrine of the church rather than an event in its sacred history. It is dedicated to the Christian belief in the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and falls on the Sunday following Pentecost each year. The belief of one God in three elements is a distinctive of the Christian faith but the early church was plagued by contrary views. Trinity Sunday spread throughout the western church around the 14th century.

"There is no need to doubt, to be fearful that the work will not succeed. God is at the head of the work, and He will set everything in order. If matters need adjusting at the head of the work, God will attend to that, and work to right every wrong. Let us have faith that God is going to carry the noble ship which bears the people of God safely into port." 2SM 390

God never gave any church UNCONDITIONAL PROMISES guaranteeing their salvation.
