Who are the 144,000

“I saw that the four angels would hold the four winds until Jesus’ work was done in the sanctuary (our MINDS=most Holy Place-the secret dwelling place of the Most High God and His Son), and then will come the seven last plagues. These plagues enraged the wicked against the righteous; they thought that we had brought the judgments of God upon them, and that if they could rid the earth of us, the plagues would then be stayed. A decree went forth to slay the saints, which caused them to cry day and night for deliverance. This was the time of Jacob’s troubleThen all the saints cried out with anguish of spirit, and were delivered by the voice of God. The 144,000 triumphed. Their faces were lighted up with the glory of God.” {EW 36.2}

"I saw that the holy Sabbath is, and will be, the separating wall between the true Israel of God and unbelievers; and that the Sabbath is the great question, to unite the hearts of God’s dear waiting saints. And if one believed, and kept the Sabbath, and received the blessing attending it, and then gave it up, and broke the holy commandment, they would shut the gates of the Holy City against themselves, as sure as there was a God that rules in heaven above. I saw that God had children, who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They had not rejected the light on it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth [Hosea 6:2, 3.] and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully. This enraged the church, and nominal Adventists, as they could not refute the Sabbath truth. And at this time, God’s chosen, all saw clearly that we had the truth, and they came out and endured the persecution with us. And I saw the sword, famine, pestilence, and great confusion in the land. [Ezekiel 7:10-19. 2 Esdras 15:5-27] The wicked thought that we had brought the judgments down on them. They rose up and took counsel to rid the earth of us, thinking that then the evil would be stayed. [2 Esdras 16:68-74.]
I saw all that “would not receive the mark of the Beast, and of his Image, in their foreheads or in their hands,” could not buy or sell. [Revelation 13:15-17.] I saw that the number (666) of the Image Beast was made up; [Revelation 13:18.] and that it was the Beast that changed the Sabbath, and the Image Beast had followed on after, and kept the Pope’s, and not God’s Sabbath. And all we were required to do, was to give up God’s Sabbath, and keep the Pope’s, and then we should have the mark of the Beast, and of his image.
In the time of trouble, we all fled from the cities and villages, [Ezekiel 7:15, 16. Luke 17:30-36. See Campbell’s translation.] but were pursued by the wicked, who entered the houses of the saints with the sword. They raised the sword to kill us, but it broke, and fell, as powerless as a straw. Then we all cried day and night for deliverance, and the cry came up before God. [Luke 18:7, 8.] The sun came up, and the moon stood still. [Habakkuk 3:11.] The streams ceased to flow. [2 Esdras 6:24.] Dark heavy clouds came up, and clashed against each other. [2 Esdras 15:34,35.] But there was one clear place of settled glory, from whence came the voice of God like many waters, which shook the heavens, and the earth. [Joel 3:16. Hebrews 12:25-27.] The sky opened and shut, and was in commotion. [Revelation 6:14. Matthew 24:29.] The mountains shook like a reed in the wind, and cast out ragged rocks all around. The sea boiled like a pot, and cast out stones upon the land. [Habakkuk 3:8-10. Isaiah 2:19-21.] And as God spoke the day and hour of Jesus’ coming, [Ezekiel 12:25. Mark 13:32.] and delivered the everlasting covenant to His people, [Ezekiel 20:37. Hebrews 12:22-25.] He spoke one sentence, and then paused, while the words were rolling through the earth! [Jeremiah 25:30, 31.] The Israel of God stood with their eyes fixed upwards, listening to the words as they came from the mouth of Jehovah, and rolled through the earth like peals of loudest thunder! It was awfully solemn. At the end of every sentence, the saints shouted, Glory! Hallelujah! Their countenances were lighted up with the glory of God; and they shone with the glory as Moses’ face did when he came down from Sinai. The wicked could not look on them, for the glory. [Song of Solomon 5:1-5.] And when the never ending blessing was pronounced on those who had honored God, in keeping His Sabbath holy, there was a mighty shout of victory over the Beast, and over his Image.

Then commenced the jubilee, when the land should rest. I saw the pious slave rise in triumph and victory, and shake off the chains that bound him, while his wicked master was in confusion, and knew not what to do; for the wicked could not understand the words of the voice of God. [Daniel 12:10.] Soon appeared the great white cloud. [Revelation 14:14.] It looked more lovely than ever before. On it sat the Son of Man. [Luke 21:27.] At first we did not see Jesus on the cloud, but as it drew near the earth, we could behold his lovely person. This cloud when it first appeared was the Sign of the Son of Man in heaven. [Matthew 24:30.] The voice of the Son of God called forth the sleeping saints, [John 5:25-28.] clothed with a glorious immortality. The living saints were changed in a moment, and caught up with them in the cloudy chariot. [1 Thessalonians 4:17.] It looked all over glorious as it rolled upwards. On either side of the chariot were wings, and beneath it wheels. And as the chariot rolled upwards, the wheels cried Holy, and the wings as they moved, cried Holy, and the retinue of Holy Angels around the cloud cried Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty. And the saints in the cloud cried Glory, Hallelujah. And the cloudy chariot rolled upwards to the Holy City. Jesus threw open the gates of the Golden City, and led us in. [Isaiah 26:2.] Here we were made welcome, for we had kept the “Commandments of God,” and had a “right to the tree of life.” [Revelation 22:14.]

From your sister in the blessed hope, E. G. White. 


“Then Jesus’ silver trumpet sounded, as He descended on the cloud, wrapped in flames of fire. He gazed on the graves of the sleeping saints, then raised His eyes and hands to heaven, and cried, “Awake! awake! awake! ye that sleep in the dust, and arise.” Then there was a mighty earthquake. The graves opened, and the dead came up clothed with immortality. The 144,000 shouted, “Alleluia!” as they recognized their friends who had been torn from them by death, and in the same moment we were changed and caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air.” {EW 16.1}

 

15 days (1/2 hour/space of 1/2 hour heaven is empty while 7 last plagues are falling upon the earth) prior to Christ's coming, the 144,000 who have died of old age, been martyred etc, are raised to life by the sound of God's voice - to the wicked it sounds like thunder - Christ's worst enemies are also raised back to life so they will be alive to see Christ coming in all His glory as prophesied.


“These, having been translated from the earth, from among the living are counted as ‘the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb'” Great Controversy p. 649.

Stephen Haskell:
So those who have fallen asleep, having the seal of God, will have a special resurrection, and will be called forth to hear the covenant of peace, and to behold their Lord as He comes in the clouds of heaven. {1905 SNH, SSP 252.1}

"Then we heard the voice of God which shook the heavens and the earth, and gave the 144,000 the day and hour of Jesus coming." Portland, April 6, 1846. BROADSIDE APR.06, 1846:


"The graves were opened, and those who had died in faith under the third angel's message, keeping the Sabbath, came forth from their dusty beds, glorified, to hear the covenant of peace that God was to make with those who had kept His law.Early Writings, p. 285.1


And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.





Christ Himself came to earth, and claimed the body of Moses. He did not wait until all came from their graves.

Quran was written by the Papacy: 

Important Information: Many do not know about the connection between Roman Catholicism and Islam. Why do they both venerate Mary over Jesus? Why are there many places in the world where Catholics and Muslims share devotion of Mary? (source). Why are MILLIONS of Muslims seeing 'apparitions' of Mary? (source). Why does the Catholic Catechism state that Muslims worship the same God as Catholics? (see Catechism number 841). And yet according to 'Papal infallibility', TRUE Bible believing Christians OUTSIDE of the Roman Catholic Church are going to burn in hell??

It’s widely reported that the ISIS is funding their terror state by oil sales. But, there are now reports that ISIS is also profiting from human organ sales.

The caliphate is trafficking human organs from kidnapped captives.

It is because the Roman Catholic Church CREATED the religion of Islam.SEE THIS VIDEO.

Uniting with apostasy in a fractured and troubled world, is still apostasy! COME OUT MY PEOPLE

 144,000 are Spirit-begotten Son's of Abraham descendants of Isaac. The 144,000 are priests of the spiritual sacrifices that are offered as the calves of our lips. 



The Ark of the Covenant represents everything about the 144,000. The contents of the Ark are the contents of the 144,000. The Box overlaid with pure gold, represents our body, tried in the fire by trials, proving the 144,000 and their spiritual children (great multitude) that they will not cave and become apostates of the one and only true God and His Son.

 Both are thrones for their God.

ISIS are Spirit-begotten Sons of Abraham descendants of Ishmael.

ISIS unites the Papacy and Protestants (The wicked thought that we had brought the judgments down on them. They rose up and took counsel to rid the earth of us, thinking that then the evil would be stayed.) in an attempt to stay the judgements of God against them by getting rid of the 144,000, and her Spiritual children (5 wise virgins/guests/Sons and Daughters of God/great multitude) who are the Remnant Saints who obey the commandments of their God.

Radical Islam does not exist btw. It’s really Fundamentalist Islam vs Non-Islam. Basically if you are muslim, you do believe in  killing "infidels" because its in your filthy Hadith! Another one of Satan’s Religions many over 200 "religions"! There is only ONE WAY into Heaven and that is Jesus Christ - any other way is like a thief and a robber trying to climb into heaven by a window or another entrance.

Being a “moderate Muslim” is like being “kind of pregnant.”

Being a "moderate Adventist" is like being "kind of pregnant."

You either ARE or you ARENT!

This applies to SDA's as well. Both groups Islam and 144,000 Adventists would 

‘We Will Defend Our Religion With Our Blood’

The original fundamental doctrines of the SDA 144,000 are the exact oposite of Islam. 




The 144,000 are also called the firstfruits - Throne of God and His Son. ISIS is the Throne of Satan. 

The name Isis means "Throne". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isis

The worship of Isis eventually spread throughout the Greco-Roman world, continuing until the suppression of paganism in the Christian era.[5] The popular motif of Isis suckling her son Horus, however, lived on in a Christianized (baptized paganism) context as the popular image of Mary suckling her infant son Jesus from the fifth century onward.[6]


ISIS 

Symbolthe throne, the sun disk with cow's horns, sparrow, cobra, vulture, sycamore tree http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isis
 "And to the woman (144,000=God's special force of agents, and her Spiritual children (5 wise virgins/guests/Sons and Daughters of God) were given two wings (2 charts = 1843 and 1850 chart) of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a timefrom the face of the serpent (Cobra=ISIS=Satan's special Satanic force of agents)." Revelation 12:14


The name ISIS means Throne...these are Muslims who are practicing their religion. Other Muslims who are not considered "Radical" or "Extreme" are "laodicean" Muslims or in name only, just saying they are Muslims. Just like Adventists who just "SAY" they are Adventists and don't "DO" their beliefs...laodiceans. Foolish virgins. In name only "Adventists", professing to be "Adventists" means "nominal" Adventists.


The practicing Adventists are the 144,000 and their Spiritual children ("guests" of the wedding feast aka "5 wise virgins"). The 144,000 are the Throne of the one and only true God and His Son. This is the Most Holy Place - the secret place of the most High, the MINDS of the 144,000 who live out their beliefs in their own body. They put into practice the historical doctrines of the SDA pioneers given in '41, '42, '43 and '44.

Compare ISIS and the 144,000. ISIS embodies Satan's character, thoughts and feelings=actions; the 144,000 are the exact opposite - embodying Christ's character (constrained by the 10 Commandment law), thoughts and feelings=actions:  

Matthew 11:29 ""Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS."

"When the decree GOES FORTH and the stamp is impressed, their character will remain pure and spotless for eternity. Now is the time to prepare." T5, 216.

If the believers in the truth are not sustained by their faith in these comparatively peaceful days, what will uphold them when the grand test comes and the decree goes forth against all those who will not worship the image of the beast and receive his mark in their foreheads or in their hands? —Testimonies for the Church 4:251 (1876). {LDE 223.3}

"When do her sins reach unto heaven? [Rev. 18:2-5] When the law of God is finally made void by legislation."--ST June 12, 1893.

'The Lord's Day Alliance' in America is Pushing for People to Lobby for a Sunday Rest Law (September 2014)

"Second, we can lobby for and practice in our lives and even corporate life the maintenance of a Lord’s Day asking, what would Jesus do on this day? As the LDA finds its voice in a society that is hungry for its message it can best do this in alliance with others ... Such could lead to work with the United Nations Advisory Committee on Environmental Sabbath/World Day of Rest. And, there are almost endless possibilities of engagement with the Labor Sabbath movement and Marketplace Ministries ... In other words, if we look around we might find many who would rally to an alliance of the Lord’s Day and its integration of spirituality with social justice, as we find our voice and our place in challenging times."

Authority on Earth. For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. (Mark 13: 34)

"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)
 
“They that forsake the law praise the wicked.” Proverbs 28:4. When those who are uniting with the world, yet claiming great purity, plead for union with those who have ever been the opposers of the cause of truth, we should fear and shun them as decidedly as did Nehemiah. Such counsel is prompted by the enemy of all good. It is the speech of timeservers, and should be resisted as resolutely today as then. Whatever influence would tend to unsettle the faith of God’s people in His guiding power, should be steadfastly withstood.

In Nehemiah’s firm devotion to the work of God, and his equally firm reliance on God, lay the reason of the failure of his enemies to draw him into their power. 

The soul that is indolent falls an easy prey to temptation; but in the life that has a noble aim, an absorbing purpose, evil finds little foothold. The faith of him who is constantly advancing does not weaken; for above, beneath, beyond, he recognizes Infinite Love, working out all things to accomplish His good purpose. God’s true servants work with a determination that will not fail because the throne of grace is their constant dependence.

God has provided divine assistance for all the emergencies to which our human resources are unequal. He gives the Holy Spirit to help in every strait, to strengthen our hope and assurance, to illuminate our minds and purify our hearts. He provides opportunities and opens channels of working. If His people are watching the indications of His providence, and are ready to co-operate with Him, they will see mighty results." --{Prophets and Kings, Page 660}
 
Ecclesiastes 12:13 "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."

“I saw that the four angels would hold the four winds until Jesus’ work was done in the sanctuary, and then will come the seven last plagues. These plagues enraged the wicked against the righteous; they thought that we had brought the judgments of God upon them, and that if they could rid the earth of us, the plagues would then be stayed. A decree went forth to slay the saints, which caused them to cry day and night for deliverance. This was the time of Jacob’s troubleThen all the saints cried out with anguish of spirit, and were delivered by the voice of God. The 144,000 triumphed. Their faces were lighted up with the glory of God.” {EW 36.2}

 

“Then Jesus’ silver trumpet sounded, as He descended on the cloud, wrapped in flames of fire. He gazed on the graves of the sleeping saints, then raised His eyes and hands to heaven, and cried, “Awake! awake! awake! ye that sleep in the dust, and arise.” Then there was a mighty earthquake. The graves opened, and the dead came up clothed with immortality. The 144,000 shouted, “Alleluia!” as they recognized their friends who had been torn from them by death, and in the same moment we were changed and caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air.” {EW 16.1}


   

Great Controversy, p. 635, shows how the 144,000 are surrounded by the enemy and are delivered by Christ’s coming. This SECOND DEATH DECREE is Satan’s final attempt to kill the 144,000 in ONE NIGHT.

 

"The woman is a symbol of the church, and the remnant of the church represents the Christians of the last generation of men, living just prior to the second advent. The dragon makes war on these for keeping the commandments of God, Sabbath and all, and having the testimony of Jesus Christ, which, according to the inspired definition of chap. xix, 10, 'is the spirit of prophecy.' Here, then, are the causes of the dragon's warfare upon the remnant. They teach the observance of the ten commandments, and the revival of the gifts, and acknowledge the gift of prophecy among them. When the Devil got one foot upon the fourth commandment, and the other upon the gifts planted in the Christian church by Jesus Christ, then his satanic majesty was filled with revengeful delight. But when the remnant, whom God designs to fit for translation to Heaven without seeing (second) death, 'ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein,' then the dragon is wroth, and makes war on them.

The true spirit of the dragonic host, which is already being somewhat developed, is vividly described in Isa. xxx, 8-13, as being manifested just prior to the sudden destruction of those who hate the pure testimony, and love smooth and deceitful things." E. G. White, Spiritual Gifts, Vol. III, 26, 27.


"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 truthMany 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.

(Psalm 68:24 “Your PROCESSION, God, has come into view, the procession of my God and Kinginto the sanctuary.”

Psalm 77:13 KJV “Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?” Jeremiah 2:2 "Go and proclaim in the hearing of Jerusalem: "This is what the LORD says: "'I remember the devotion of your youth, how as a bride you loved me and followed me through the wildernessthrough a land not sown.) already on its way to the gospel feast, (this “procession” or “movement” is already in the wilderness (little time of trouble 3/19/13 to 9/19/16 = see Rev 13:5 Pope Francis being 8th King that reigns for 42 mo/1,260 days/3.5 years)  means: obscure, veiled, covered, in a “raised field” the CITY OF GOD, YOUR MIND, settled in the truth, being prepared to soon stand in the sight of a Holy God without our intercessor, Christ. Being prepared to stand in the sight of a Holy God when He holds out to us His golden scepter, Jesus Christ. Compare to Queen Esther fasting and praying for 2 days and going in on the third day with her Royal Robes on (character of Christ) before the King to see if He would hold out his golden scepter to her so she would live in his sight.

Song of Solomon 6:10 “Who is this that appears like the dawn, fair as the moon (Mother=144,000), bright as the sun, majestic as the stars in procession?” THE 144,000!


"I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They have not rejected the light upon it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath MORE FULLY.  This enraged the churches and nominal (in name only/laodicean/foolish virgin/501c3) Adventists, as they could not refute the Sabbath truth. And at this time God’s chosen all saw clearly that WE (those who had come out of the 501c3 SDA church organization) had the truth, and they came out and endured the persecution with us." Early Writings, p. 33.2

“The great plan of redemption, as revealed in the closing work of these last days, should receive close examination. The scenes connected with the sanctuary above should make such an impression upon the minds and hearts of all that they may be able to impress others. All need to become more intelligent in regard to the work of the atonement, which is going on in the sanctuary above. When this grand truth is seen and understood, those who hold it will work in harmony with Christ to prepare a people to stand in the great day of God, and their efforts will be successful. By study, contemplation, and prayer God’s people will be elevated above common, earthly thoughts and feelings, and will be brought into harmony with Christ and His great work of cleansing the sanctuary above from the sins of the people.Their faith will go with Him into the sanctuary, and the worshipers on earth will be carefully reviewing their lives and comparing their characters with the great standard of righteousness (10 Commandments=Christ the law in our minds, the mind of Christ in us, His character, His merits and attributes are written for us to mold our lives after in the Ten Commandments with His help)They will see their own defects; they will also see that they must have the aid of the Spirit of God if they would become qualified for the great and solemn work for this time which is laid upon God’s ambassadors.” 5T 575

Gates of Heaven are pearls - the KEY in the hand of Faith is the Bible Promises that open the gates of the City of God: "The promises of God looked to me like so many precious pearls that were to be received by only asking for them." RH July 21, 1851, Art. B, par. 3

"As the result of the threefold message it is announced, 'Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.'" GC 453, 454.

"​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.​"​ {7Red 6.1}​​

 “WITH A FAITH AND ASSURANCE THAT THEY HAD NEVER BEFORE KNOWN, THEY ACCEPTED THE TEACHINGS OF THE SACRED WORD. No longer was it a matter of FAITH with them that Christ was the Son of God. They KNEW that, although clothed with humanity, He was indeed the Messiah, and they told their experience to the world with a confidence which carried with it the conviction that God was with them.” –{The Acts of the Apostles, p. 45.3}.


"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 (character/influence) which would attend their words." {7Red 5.2​}​

The Ark of the Covenant symbolizes the 144,000 (Melchizedek/Elijah), the Bride of Christ, priests of the new Covenant, the investigative judgement, the new living Way, Christ our Bridegroom, our Righteousness, our Character, our thoughts and our feelings become transformed into Christ's Character (law), thoughts and feelings. 

Christ's Spirit/words/Character/Comforter/law (John 6:63), is also known as His WORDS, which become our WORDS/language/character when we feed/eat upon or partake of the Character/law of Christ. The Character/law of Christ, His WORDS (John 12:49/John 7:16/John 8:28/John 5:19) are found in the precious Bible verse promises that we memorize, pray, sing and repeat - in this way, Christ's WORDS or SPIRIT/law or Character/law becomes OUR character/law, our words/law, our thoughts/law and our feelings/law. This is the language of Heaven and how we learn the language/law of Heaven is to study it, memorize it, repeat it as a "Thus Saith the Lord" and a "It is Written".

Christ's mind/law and WORDS are the unchangeable perfect, Holy Law of God, the Truth of God in our mind. Let this MIND that was ALSO in Christ Jesus be in YOU. Christ is the Law in us, constraining our daily choices to be in constant agreement with His daily choices. These 144,000 leaders proclaim "The Kingdom/law of Heaven is at Hand" which is the character/law of Christ, the law in us and "The Bridegroom/law cometh, Go ye OUT to meet Him/law". Which means to go out of partaking of the unholy feast, into the holy feast/law. The holy feast is an intense study of the Word of God, Jesus Christ/law, found in the love letter to His people in the precious Bible promises. Find specific Bible verses that apply to your situation and claim them over yourself, family, friends and enemies. 

“Arise, shine; for thy light (living reality experiencing Jesus helping you in your life trials) is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.” Isaiah 60:1. TO THOSE WHO GO OUT TO MEET THE BRIDEGROOM IS THIS MESSAGE GIVEN."  Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 420.3

The 144,000 are chosen by God Himself as a Bride for His Son from among His people, the Seventh-day Adventist church to bring the special messages entrusted to them in the early years of Adventism; "The truths that we (Adventists) received in 1841, '42, '43, and '44 [that] are now [2015-2016] to be studied and proclaimed. The messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future [now=2015-2016] be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit." {15MR 317.1}

The 144,000 are historical Adventist doctrine leaders who live and give the 3 angels messages from Oct 22, 1844 until probation closes for the world - the dark day signals the close of the world's probation to God's people. These 144,000  of the great historical truths that were revealed in 1841, 1842, 1843 and 1844 to the pioneers of Adventism.  

The Ark of the Covenant contents (10 Commandments inside the Ark=Our Mind, Bowl of Manna, Aaron's Rod that budded and bore fruit overnight, Moses law outside the Ark) and how it was made symbolizes the 144,000 and what they are to have inside and outside of their bodies. Their bodies/minds are the Temple of God, the Throne of God, mobile Chariots of God,

"I saw a throne, and on it sat the Father and the Son. . . . Before the throne I saw the Advent people--the church and the world. I saw two companies, one bowed down before the throne, deeply interested, while the other stood uninterested and careless." Early Writings, page 54.

 "Now this praying company was in this mortal state, on the earth, yet represented to me as bowed before the throne. I never had the idea that these individuals were actually in the New Jerusalem. Neither did I ever think that any mortal could suppose that I believed that Satan was actually in the New Jerusalem." Early Writings, page 92.


The 144,000 have been being chosen by God Himself as a Bride for His Son since October 22, 1844 until the number is made up, then the Sunday law legislation is put into effect. These literal 144,000 number ARE priests of the new covenant (three angels messages) (Heavenly Priesthood) upon earth while Christ is officiating in the Heavenly Sanctuary. These priests have been entering into the Heavenly Sanctuary through the 12 gates into the city of God by thanksgiving and praise. Psalms 100:4

12 Precious Stones of the Breastplate - "breastplate of righteousness"Ephesians 6:14 "Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;" 

The Full Armor of God
13Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, 15and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE;…

"I heard THOSE clothed with the armor speak forth the truth with great power. It had effect. Many had been bound; some wives by their husbands, and some children by their parents. The honest who had been prevented from hearing the truth now eagerly laid hold upon it. All fear of their relatives was gone, and the truth alone was exalted to them. THEY HAD BEEN HUNGERING AND THIRSTING FOR TRUTH; IT WAS DEARER AND MORE PRECIOUS THAN LIFE. I asked what had made this great change. An angel answered, “It is the latter rain, the refreshing from the presence of the Lord, the loud cry of the third angel.” (Early Writings, p.271)

Job 29:14
I put on righteousness as my clothing; justice was my robe and my turban.

Isaiah 11:5
Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist.

Isaiah 59:17
He put on righteousness as his breastplate, and the helmet of salvation on his head; he put on the garments of vengeance and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak.

Luke 12:35
"Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning,

Romans 13:12
The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

Ephesians 6:13
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

1 Thessalonians 5:8
But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith (faith of Christ claimed as our OWN faith activates the power/character of Christ/law in us = Christ's WORDS practiced in our lives and on our tongues - His WORDS become OUR WORDS = Bible verses) and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.

1 Peter 1:13
Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.

12 Pearly Gates of the Temple in Heaven: faith is the key in the hand of faith that unlocks Heavens door/gate - faith in the Bible verse promises, the Word of God

"The promises of God looked to me like so many precious pearls that were to be received by only asking for them." RH July 21, 1851, Art. B, par. 3

Revelation 22:14 "Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city."

144,000 like "standing on the sea of glass, holding harps (Words/praise) of God"

Early Writings, page 16, that "We were seven days ascending to the sea of glass."

"Sea of glass mingled with fire" Revelation 15:2 means 144,000 refined by trials until they become transparent glass/gold reflecting fully the image of Christ, the 10 Commandment law, the mind of Christ and the fire stands for their zealous efforts.

Here we saw the tree of life and the throne of God. Out of the throne came a pure river of water (truth/Christ/law), and on either side of the river was the tree of life. On one side of the river was a trunk of a tree, and a trunk on the other side of the river, both of pure transparent gold.

"At first I thought I saw two trees. I looked again and saw they were united at the top in one tree.—So it was the tree of life, on either side of the river of life. Its branches bowed to the place where we stood; and the fruit was glorious, which looked like gold mixed with silver. We all went under the tree, and sat down to look at the glory of the place...RH July 21, 1851, Art. B, par. 3

"fruitmeans results in our lives, the character of Christ lived out in our thoughts, feelings and actions. The Ten Commandments is Christ's mind in our mind. The Master knows our character by our spiritual fruits, just as "a tree is known [identified] by its fruit"—either good or bad (Matthew:12:33

  1. "On either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations (people)" (Revelation 22:2).

The two trees on either side of the sea of glass/river that blend into one at the top represents God and His Son. The 12 fruits on the tree of life that the 144,000 and wise virgins feast on, represent the gospel feast, the Bread of Life, the Word of God, the 12 characteristics of God and His Son:

Nine fruits are listed in Galatians 5:22-23 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

Three fruits are listed in Ephesians 5:9-10 (KJV) " (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord."

  1. love
  2. joy
  3. peace
  4. longsuffering
  5. gentleness
  6. goodness
  7. faith
  8. meekness
  9. temperance
  10. all goodness
  11. all righteousness
  12. all truth
"This temple was supported by seven pillars, all of transparent gold, set with pearls most glorious. The glorious things I saw there, I cannot describe. Oh, that I could talk in the language of Canaan, then could I tell a little of the glory of the better world. I saw there tables of stone in which the names of the 144,000 were engraved in letters of gold. After we beheld the glory of the temple, we went out, and Jesus left us, and went to the City."  RH July 21, 1851, Art. B, par. 3

The 12,000 from each tribe enter into the 12 gates at the TIME OF THEIR SERVICE. The Levites served certain times as their time of service came up for work; and the 144,000 also serve their time from October 22, 1844 until the number is made up by the time the Sunday law legislation is implemented.

 The 144,000 are priests - chosen as Brides for His Son by God Himself - from October 22, 1844 until the Sunday law. These Brides come from His own people: Adventist leaders who live and give the three angels messages since 1844 until the Sunday law.

The 144,000, the 12 tribes enter into the City of God, the New Jerusalem through His gates of PEARL (Christ) with THANKSGIVING. The PEARL OF GREAT PRICE IS CHRIST the LAW in US. His character, daily thoughts and feelings become our daily thoughts and feelings = Character of Christ in us. The 144,000 enter into the City of God, New Jerusalem, Zion, Mount Zion, when they obtain the PEARL of great price.

See Psalms 100:4 "Enter into his [12] gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts [to serve the people] with praisebe thankful unto him, and bless his name."

Ezekiel 40:24
Then he led me to the south side and I saw the south gate. He measured its jambs and its portico, and they had the same measurements as the others.

Ezekiel 46:9 "But when the people of the land shall come before the LORD in the solemn feasts, he that entereth in by the way of the north gate to worship shall go out by the way of the south gate; and he that entereth by the way of the south gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate: he shall not return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but shall go forth over against it."

Ezekiel 8:14
Then he brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the house of the LORD, and I saw women sitting there, mourning the god Tammuz ("God the Son" in the Trinity).

Ezekiel 8:13
Again, he said, "You will see them doing things that are even more detestable."

Ezekiel 8:15
He said to me, "Do you see this, son of man? You will see things that are even more detestable than this."

Ezekiel 11:12
And you will know that I am the LORD, for you (501c3/foolish virgin/laodiceans) have not followed my decrees or kept my laws but have conformed to the standards of the nations (501c3 protestant churches) around you."

"They were not to be present in person at the marriage; for it takes place in heaven, while they are upon the earth. The followers of Christ are to "wait for their Lord, when He will return from the wedding." Luke 12:36. But they are to understand His work, and to follow Him by faith as He goes in before GodIt is in this sense that they are said to go in to the marriage." The Great Controversy, p. 427.1Christ in His Sanctuary, p. 105.1

"Let us not think that Jesus is the Saviour of some one elsebut that He is our personal friendEntertain the precious thought that Jesus loves me. In this way the cloud of despondency and gloom will be rolled back from the soul, and we shall be enabled to make melody in our hearts unto God. We may triumph in the Lord, every day acknowledging the fact that our heavenly treasure, our everlasting portion, is sure to us through the atonement and righteousness of Jesus Christ. Believing this ourselves, we shall be able to aid others to see that their only help is in God, and encourage them to flee for refuge to Christ, laying hold on the hope set before us in the gospel !" - Review & Herald, June 9, 1896.

John the Baptist said, “A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before Him. He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice.” John represented himself as the friend who acted as a messenger between the betrothed parties, preparing the way for the marriage. When the bridegroom had received his bride, the mission of the friend was fulfilled. He rejoiced in the happiness of those whose union he had promoted. So John had been called to direct the people to Jesus, and it was his joy to witness the success of the Saviour’s work. He said, “This my joy therefore is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease.”

Looking in faith to the Redeemer, John had risen to the height of self-abnegation. He sought not to attract men to himself, but to lift their thoughts higher and still higher, until they should rest upon the Lamb of God. He himself had been only a voice, a cry in the wilderness. Now with joy he accepted silence and obscurity, that the eyes of all might be turned to the Light of life.

Those who are true to their calling as messengers for God will not seek honor for themselves. Love for self will be swallowed up in love for Christ. No rivalry will mar the precious cause of the gospel. They will recognize that it is their work to proclaim, as did John the Baptist, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” John 1:29. They will lift up Jesus, and with Him humanity will be lifted up. “Thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” Isaiah 57:15.

The soul of the prophet, emptied of self, was filled with the light of the divine. As he witnessed to the Saviour’s glory, his words were almost a counterpart of those that Christ Himself had spoken in His interview with Nicodemus. John said, “He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: He that cometh from heaven is above all.... For He whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto Him.” Christ could say, “I seek not Mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent Me.” John 5:30. To Him it is declared, “Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even Thy God, hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows.” Hebrews 1:9. The Father “giveth not the Spirit by measure unto Him.” Maranatha, p. 328.3
 

"Jesus’ mediation, were living in the sight of a holy God, without an intercessor. Every case was decided, every jewel numbered. Jesus tarried a moment in the outer apartment of the heavenly Sanctuary, and the sins which had been confessed while he was in the Most Holy place, he placed back upon the originator of sin, the Devil. He must suffer the punishment of these sins.

Then I saw Jesus lay off his priestly attire, and clothe himself with his most kingly robes—upon his head were many crowns, a crown within a crown—and surrounded by the angelic host, he left heaven. The plagues were falling upon the inhabitants of the earth. Some were denouncing God, and cursing him. Others rushed to the people of God, and begged to be taught how they should escape the judgments of God. But the saints had nothing for them. The last tear for sinners had been shed, the last agonizing prayer offered, the last burden had been borne. The sweet voice of mercy was no more to invite them. The last note of warning had been given. When the saints, and all heaven were interested for their salvation, they had no interest for themselves. Life and death had been set before them. Many desired life; but did not make any effort to obtain it. They did not choose life, and now there was no atoning blood to cleanse the sinner. No compassionate Saviour to plead for them, and cry, Spare, spare the sinner a little longer. All heaven had united with Jesus, as they heard the fearful words, It is done, It is finished. The plan of salvation had been accomplished. But few had chosen to accept the plan. And as mercy’s sweet voice died away, a fearfulness and horror seized them. With terrible distinctness they hear, Too late! too late!

Those who had not prized God’s word were hurrying to and fro. They wandered from sea to sea, and from the north to the east, to seek the word of the Lord. Said the angel, They shall not find it. There is a famine in the land; not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord. What would they not give for one word of approval from God? but no, they must hunger and thirst on. Day after day have they slighted salvation, and prized earthly pleasure, and earthly riches, higher than any heavenly inducement and treasure. They have rejected Jesus, and despised his saints. The filthy must remain filthy forever.

A great portion of the wicked were greatly enraged, as they suffered the effects of the plagues. It was a scene of fearful agony. Parents were bitterly reproaching their children, and children reproaching their parents, brothers their sisters, and sisters their brothers. Loud wailing cries were heard in every direction, It was you who kept me from receiving the truth, which would have saved me from this awful hour. The people turned upon the ministers with bitter hate, and reproached them, telling them, You have not warned us. You told us all the world was to be converted, and cried, Peace, peace, to quiet every fear that was aroused. You have not told us of this hour, and those who warned us of it you said were fanatics, and evil men, who would ruin us. But the ministers, I saw, did not escape the wrath of God. Their sufferings were ten fold greater than their people’s." Spiritual Gifts. Volume 1, p. 199.1

The Holiness of God

"May 14th, 1851, I saw the beauty and loveliness of Jesus. As I beheld his glory the thought did not occur to me that I should ever be separated from his presence. I saw a light coming from the glory that encircled the Father, and as it approached near to me, my body trembled and shook like a leaf. I thought if it should come near to me I should be struck out of existence; but the light past me. Then could I have some sense of the great and terrible God that we have to do with. Then I saw what faint views some have of the holiness of God, and how much they take his holy and reverend name in vain, without realizing that it was God, the great and terrible God, they were speaking of. I have seen that many, while praying, used careless and irreverent expressions which grieved the tender Spirit of the Lord and caused their petitions to be shut out of heaven.

I also saw that many did not realize what they must be in order to live in the sight of the Lord, without a High Priest in the Sanctuary, through the time of troubleThose who receive the seal of the living God, and are protected in the time of trouble, must reflect the image of Jesus fully.

I saw that many were neglecting the preparation so needful, and were looking to the time of the “refreshing” and “latter rain” to fit them to stand in the day of the Lord, and to live in his sight. O, how many I saw in the time of trouble without a shelter! They had neglected the needful preparation, therefore they could not receive the refreshing that all must have to fit them to live in the sight of a holy God. Those who refuse to be hewed by the prophets, and do not purify their souls in obeying the whole truth, and are willing to believe that their condition is far better than it really is, will come up to the time of the falling of the plagues, and then see that they needed to be hewed and squared for the building." A Sketch of the Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White, p. 58.3

"The same destructive power exercised by holy angels when God commands, will be exercised by evil angels when He permits. There are forces now ready, and only waiting the divine permission, to spread desolation everywhere.—The Great Controversy, 614 (1911).

The First Two Plagues
When Christ ceases His intercession in the sanctuary, the unmingled wrath threatened against those who worship the beast and his image and receive his mark (Revelation 14:9, 10), will be poured out. The plagues upon Egypt when God was about to deliver Israel, were similar in character to those more terrible and extensive judgments which are to fall upon the world just before the final deliverance of God’s people. Says the revelator, in describing those terrific scourges: “There fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshiped his image.” The sea “became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea” [Revelation 16:2, 3].—The Great Controversy, 627, 628 (1911).

The plagues were falling upon the inhabitants of the earth. Some were denouncing God and cursing Him. Others rushed to the people of God and begged to be taught how they might escape His judgments. But the saints had nothing for them. The last tear for sinners had been shed, the last agonizing prayer offered, the last burden borne, the last warning given.—Early Writings, 281 (1858). Last Day Events, p. 244.

“As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot. They did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed...In the days of Noah, the wickedness of the world became so great that God could no longer bear with it; and he said, “I will destroy man whom I have created, from the face of the earth.” But he pitied the race, and in his love provided a refuge for all who would accept it. He gave the message to Noah to be given to the people: “My Spirit shall not always strive with man.” Noah was directed to build an ark, and at the same time to preach that God would bring a flood of waters upon the earth to destroy the wicked. Those who would believe the message, and would prepare for that event by repentance and reformation, should find pardon and be saved; but a continued resistance of the entreaties and warnings from God through his servant Noah, would separate them from God, and as a result infinite mercy and love would cease its pleadings. The Spirit of God continued to strive with rebellious man until the time specified had nearly expired, when Noah and his family entered the ark, and the hand of God closed its door. Mercy had stepped from the golden throne, no longer to intercede for the guilty sinner...All the men of that generation were not in the fullest sense of the term heathen idolaters. Many had a knowledge of God and his law; but they not only rejected the message of the faithful preacher of righteousness themselves, but used all their influence to prevent others from being obedient to God. To every one comes a day of trial and of trust. That generation had their day of opportunity and privilege while Noah was sounding the note of warning of the coming destruction; but they yielded their minds to the control of Satan rather than of God, and he deceived them, as he did our first parents. He set before them darkness and falsehood in the place of light and truth; and they accepted his sophistry and lies, because they were acceptable to them, and in harmony with their corrupt lives, while truth that would have saved them was rejected as a delusion.” ST April 1, 1886, par. 3

"Jesus has told His disciples to "watch," but not for definite time. His followers are to be in the position of those who are listening for the orders of their Captain; they are to watch, wait, pray, and work, as they approach the time for the coming of the Lord; but no one will be able to predict just when that time will come; for "of that day and hour knoweth no man." You will not be able to say that He will come in one, two, or five years, neither are you to put off His coming by stating that it may not be for ten or twenty years." --Review and Herald, March 22, 1892

"I also saw many do not realize what they must be in order to live in the sight of the Lord without a high priest in the sanctuary through the time of trouble. Those who receive the seal of the living God and are protected in the time of trouble must reflect the image of Jesus fully. I saw that many were neglecting the preparation so needful and were looking to the time of “refreshing” and the “latter rain” to fit them to stand in the day of the Lord and to live in His sight. Oh, how many I saw in the time of trouble without a shelter! They had neglected the needful preparation; therefore they could not receive the refreshing that all must have to fit them to live in the sight of a holy God. Those who ... fail to purify their souls in obeying the whole truth ... will come up to the time of the falling of the plagues, and then see that they needed to be hewed and squared for the building. But there will be ... no Mediator to plead their cause before the Father. Before this time the awfully solemn declaration has gone forth, “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.”

I saw that none could share the “refreshing” unless they obtain the victory over every besetment, over pride, selfishness, love of the world, and over every wrong word and action. We should, therefore, be drawing nearer and nearer to the Lord and be earnestly seeking that preparation necessary to enable us to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord. 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." Our Father Cares, p. 318.8

"As God has shown me the travels of the Advent people to the Holy City, and the rich reward to be given those who 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, and 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 brethren and sisters in the Lord, it is a goodly land, and we are well able to go up and possess it." RH July 21, 1851, Art. B, par. 3
 

“The great plan of redemption, as revealed in the closing work of these last days, should receive close examination. The scenes connected with the sanctuary above should make such an impression upon the minds and hearts of all that they may be able to impress others. All need to become more intelligent in regard to the work of the atonement, which is going on in the sanctuary above. When this grand truth is seen and understood, those who hold it will work in harmony with Christ to prepare a people to stand in the great day of God, and their efforts will be successful. By study, contemplation, and prayer God’s people will be elevated above common, earthly thoughts and feelings, and will be brought into harmony with Christ and His great work of cleansing the sanctuary above from the sins of the people.Their faith will go with Him into the sanctuary, and the worshipers on earth will be carefully reviewing their lives and comparing their characters with the great standard of righteousness (10 Commandments=Christ the law in our minds, the mind of Christ in us, His character, His merits and attributes are written for us to mold our lives after in the Ten Commandments with His Spirit/Words/Presence/help)They will see their own defects; they will also see that they must have the aid of the Spirit of God if they would become qualified for the great and solemn work for this time which is laid upon God’s ambassadors.” 5T 575

 
“Thus those who follow in the light of the prophetic word saw that, instead of coming to the earth at the termination of the 2300 days in 1844, Christ then entered the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary to perform the closing work of atonement preparatory to His coming.” (The Great Controversy, p. 422).

The TEMPLE/Throne of God, the "sea of glass" (sea=people, glass transparent character refined by trial and fire = zealous effort) is FOUND in the 144,000, the Bride of Christ. Jesus alleged: "I can destroy the Temple of God and in three days build it up. ... "three days" alludes to the change or decisive turn of events (see Hosea 6:2).  "After two days will He revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sightHosea 6:2. Hosea 6:2 goes on to say, "And on the third day He will raise us up" That we may live in His sight", indicating, as we shall see, that this revival will carry on into the Millennium.

Dear Sister Shirley and Dr. Bill,

Thank you for emailing me about the Melchizedek article. I first read that article about 4 or 5 years ago. It prompted me to create a webpage about "Who is Melchizedek". So, as I have studied, I've kept my eyes open for tidbits of information about Melchizedek and put on that page as my study notes. Gathering information into one spot about this interesting topic.

The article you found I believe to be false. At least the part about Ellen White stating that Melchizedek IS Christ because of this:  "Melchizedek was NOT Christ, but he was the voice of God in the world (like the 144,000 are the voice of God in the world)" (The SDA Bible Commentary, 1092-1093).

Identity of Melchizedek. Mrs. White reportedly identified Melchizedek as the Holy Spirit, according to the memory of one man. There is no support in her writings for this teaching, and the memory statement is offset by denials of others who were present when Ellen G. White is supposed to have made this statement. She did not identify Melchizedek. See Ellen G. White statement in the Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary, vol. 1, p. 1093, in which she says Melchizedek was not Christ.

First of all, the letter was signed by G.B. Starr in 1924, nine years after the death of Sister White and was only a report of what she said. Concerning such reports, Sister White tells us: 

And now to all who have a desire for truth I would say: Do not give credence to unauthenticated reports as to what Sister White has done or said or written. If you desire to know what the Lord has revealed through her, read her published works. Are there any points of interest concerning which she has not written, do not eagerly catch up and report rumors as to what she has said.{5T 696.1}


A search of Sister White's published writings reveals that she never identifies Melchisedec as the Holy Spirit. She writes concerning him: 

It was Christ that spoke through Melchisedec, the priest of the most high God. Melchisedec was not Christ, but he was the voice of God in the world, the representative of the Father. And all through the generations of the past, Christ has spoken; Christ has led his people, and has been the light of the world. When God chose Abraham as a representative of his truth, he took him out of his country, and away from his kindred, and set him apart...{RH, February 18, 1890 par. 10}
“It was Christ who spoke through Melchizedek, the priest of the most high God. Melchizedek was NOT Christ, but he was the VOICE of God in the world, the REPRESENTATIVE of the Father [MELCHIZEDEK symbolizes the 144,000 I believe - the voice of God crying in the wilderness (obscurity = like John the Baptist)].” – Selected Messages, Book 1, p. 409.

Ellen White makes very clear that Melchizedek was a holy man

"Many persons will meet all inferior demands and dues, and leave to God only the last gleanings, if there be any. If not, his cause must wait till a more convenient season. Such was not the course pursued by Abraham. Upon his return from a successful military expedition, he was met by Melchizedek, "king of Salem, and priest of the most high God." This holy man blessed Abraham, in the name of the Lord, and the patriarch gave him tithes of all the spoils as a tribute of gratitude to the Ruler of nations." {RH, May 16, 1882 par. 24} 

The 144,000 become so like Christ they are in HIS PERFECT LIKENESS - they REPEAT HIS WORDS as their OWN WORDS like Christ did as our EXAMPLE: John 7:16 "Jesus answered, "My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me."

We are to repeat the WORDS of CHRIST as OUR OWN WORDS. THEY ARE NOT OUR WORDS BUT THE WORDS GOD GAVE HIS SON TO GIVE TO US FOR US TO GIVE TO OTHERS. REPEAT THE WORDS OF THE PIONEERS ELLEN WHITE TELLS US.

“Repeat the words of the pioneers in our work, who knew what it cost to search for the truth as for hidden treasure, and who labored to lay the foundation of our work.”

Ellen White, The Review and Herald, May 25, 1905

Calls to Republish
The record of the experience through which the people of God passed in the early history of our work must be republished. (Letter 105, 1903)The experience of William Miller and his associates, of Captain Joseph Bates, and of other pioneers in the advent message, should be kept before our people. (Letter 105, 1903)

The standard-bearers who have fallen in death, are to speak through the reprinting of their writings to bear their testimony as to what constitutes truth for this time. (CWE32)

Let those who are dead speak by reprinting their articles. (MS62, 1905)

Rehearse the experience of the men who acted a part in the establishment of our work in the beginning. (MS129, 1905)

The history of the early experiences in the message will be a power to withstand the masterly ingenuity of Satan’s deceptions. (Letter 99, 1905)

Repeat the words of the pioneers in our work, who knew what it cost to search for the truth as for hidden treasure, and who labored to lay the foundation of our work. (RH 5/25/05)



John 12:49 "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak." 

Deuteronomy 18:18
I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him.

John 3:11
Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.

John 5:19
Jesus gave them this answer: "Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.

John 6:68
Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.

John 7:16
Jesus answered, "My teaching is not my ownIt comes from the one who sent me.

John 8:26
"I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is trustworthy, and what I have heard from him I tell the world."

John 8:28
So Jesus said, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me.

John 14:10
Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.

John 14:24
Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

John 14:31
but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me. "Come now; let us leave.

John 17:8
For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me.



I would trust this over a report of documented hearsay.

“As by faith we look to Jesus, our faith pierces the shadow, and we adore God for His wondrous love in giving Jesus the Comforter.”  19MR 297


As true God believers we know the DIVINE SPIRIT that the worlds REDEEMER PROMISED to SEND is the PRESENCE and POWER (Character=thoughts and feelings) of God Himself through Christ to us. Christ was reconciling our minds back to His Father. Let this MIND be in you that was ALSO IN Christ Jesus. The Ten Commandments are only TEN THOUGHTS of GOD HIMSELF, and Christ is the thought of God made audible to mankind. Christ is ABLE to keep us from falling per Jude 1:24 and Is 61:10-11, Zach 3:4 and to MAKE US Holy or in other words perfect and Holy simply mean to be in "Constant agreement with God". Luke 21:15 tells us that Christ will GIVE us a tongue that cannot be gainsaid nor resisted and James 3:2 says if we can control our tongue we are a PERFECT MAN able to keep our whole body in check = sinless! Praise God and His Son for their ultimate sacrifice. Our sacrifices are to be the calves of our lips. Our words are to become the language of Heaven the WORD OF GOD spoken forth or issued from our bellies as springs of living water to quench the thirst of a dying world. THE WORDS WE SPEAK SHOULD BE THE WORD OF GOD. MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT AND THEY ARE LIFE. John 6:63. We, like Jesus should have a "It is Written" or a "Thus Saith the Lord" on our lips instead of our own selfish criticizing, faultfinding tearing down the reputations of our fellow being type of words. These selfish type of words come from a demon of selfishness when we speak them.

  1. Watch this video for more info about this:

    Nader Mansour - Enoch, Elijah and the Sanctuary Service: http://youtu.be/zUsIyowPz64

    The earthly Sanctuary points forward to a Heavenly Priesthood - Christ reigning/sitting on His Throne - the 144,000. 

    See Ellen G. White statement in the 
    Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary, vol. 1, p. 1093, in which she says Melchizedek was not Christ
     "God has never left Himself without witness on the earth. At one time Melchizedek represented the Lord Jesus Christ in person, to reveal the truth of heaven, and perpetuate the law of God. Melchizedek was NOT Christ, but he was the voice of God in the world (like the 144,000 are the voice of God in the world)" (The SDA Bible Commentary, 1092-1093).




  2. WE NOW HAVE A HIGH PRIEST THAT NO ONE HAD BEFORE THE CROSS. AND A NEW ORDER OF ROYAL PRIESTS (SDA leaders believing and living the early doctrines of Adventism - )

  3. Hebrews 7:11 "If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?" 

    THE EARTHLY PRIESTS - that serve in the Heavenly TEMPLE - our minds/bodies/thoughts/feelings/actions (144,000) are the Throne of God (144,000) WHILE THEY ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST, the church Triumphant - 


I have also been praying for God to reveal to me (claiming Jer 33:3) who this person represents in these end time events because of this statement from the inspired pen of Ellen White:

"Who is to compose the hundred and forty-four thousand? This those who are the elect of God will in a short time know without question." Last Day Events, p. 269.1

The "elect of God" are the 144,000. Those who ARE a part of this number, WILL in a SHORT TIME KNOW without question Ellen White said. One day a few months ago, I was reading and it just became clear to me who they were. What we study forms our opinions and ideas and putting the quotes together in my mind, it became clear to me. If you have some reason or quotes that differ, please by all means send them to me. I am looking for quotes that might say the 12 apostles were a part of the 144,000. But so far, have not found them. I found one person saying there was a quote that said this, but when I studied the quote in Desire of Ages, I did not see the correlation he claimed to be there. Here is a interesting quote:

"All were anxious for an opportunity to advance their sentiments, or to preach to us. They were told that we had not come so great a distance to hear thembut had come to teach them the truth. Bro. Arnold held that the 1000 years of Revelation 20 were in the past; (ERROR according to Sister White:) and that the 144,000 were those raised at Christ’s resurrection. And as we had the emblem of our dying Lord before us, and was about to commemorate his sufferings, Bro. A. arose and said he had no faith in what we were about to do; that the Sacrament was a continuation of the Passover, to be observed but once a year.

These strange differences of opinion rolled a heavy weight upon me, especially as Bro. A. spoke of the 1000 years being in the past. I knew that he was in error, and great grief pressed my spirits; for it seemed to me that God was dishonored. I fainted under the burden. Brethren Bates, Chamberlain, Gurney, Edson, and my husband, prayed for me. Some feared I was dying. But the Lord heard the prayers of his servants, and I revived. The light of Heaven rested upon me. I was soon lost to earthly things. My accompanying angel presented before me some of the errors of those present, and also the truth in contrast with their errors. That these discordant views, which they claimed to be according to the Bible, were only according to their opinion of the Bible, and that their errors must be yielded, and they unite upon the third angel’s messageOur meeting ended victoriously. Truth gained the victory." Spiritual Gifts, vol. 2, p. 98.1  

(ERROR according to Sister White: "
and that the 144,000 were those raised at Christ’s resurrection.) THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN BEFORE THE TIME OF THEIR ROYAL PRIESTLY SERVICE WHICH STARTED OCT 22, 1844. 


The 144,000 began to be numbered as leaders of the historical truths of Adventism October 22, 1844. See (Psalm 68:24 “Your PROCESSION, God, has come into VIEW (October 22, 1844), the procession of my God and King into the sanctuary.”) The MARRIAGE OF CHRIST TO HIS BRIDE, THEIR UNION PRODUCES SPIRITUAL CHILDREN. THOSE WHO ARE NOT CHOSEN TO BE A PART OF THE 144,000 APOSTLES or LEADERS of the Three Angels Messages keeping the 7th day Sabbath - but who came to be inspected or investigated by the KING become CONCUBINES and GO INTO THE SECOND HOUSE in the CITY OF GOD. THESE ONLY COME before the KING (Christ) when he calls them specifically by NAME. See the story of Queen Esther in Esther 2:14. As I understand it, there are three houses or sections in the City of God. One for the Queen, the 144,000 who are like Navy Seals or Green Berets - a SPECIAL FORCE for God - they obey orders promptly and exactly to the fullness of their ability. Second house or section is for the Concubines who were beautiful but did not make the cut to become one of the 144,000, one section or house for the Great Multitude who have died or never die who live or have lived up to the light they had in Christ from the beginning of time until the close of probation.


"The number of His subjects is made up; "the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven," is about to be given to the heirs of salvation, and Jesus is to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords.--GC 613, 614 (1911).  {LDE 254.1}


There is no temple in Heaven because the 144,000 ARE the TEMPLE that God and His Son dwell in. They are also called the City of Truth or the City of God, the New Jerusalem that comes down from Heaven as a Bride adorned for her Husband Christ. This represents that Rock with 7 eyes that smites the feet of the image in Daniel 2 and smashes error into pieces. Think of the Rock as the City of God, the New Jerusalem coming down from Heaven adorned as a Bride for her husband. Adorned with the 12 fruits or gems found in Gal 5:22-23 and Eph 5:9-10. The 12 fruits on the tree of life that the 144,000 and wise virgins feast on, represent the gospel feast, the Bread of Life, the Word of God, the 12 characteristics of God and His Son: Nine fruits are listed in Galatians 5:22-23 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Three fruits are listed in Ephesians 5:9-10 (KJV) " (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord."

This is what the Bride is adorned with and stands up with Christ when He stands up and says "It is Finished". and the 7 last plagues start to happen:

  1. Love - Galatians 5:22-23
  2. Joy - Galatians 5:22-23
  3. Peace - Galatians 5:22-23
  4. Longsuffering - Galatians 5:22-23
  5. Gentleness - Galatians 5:22-23
  6. Goodness - Galatians 5:22-23
  7. Faith - Galatians 5:22-23
  8. Meekness - Galatians 5:22-23
  9. Temperance - Galatians 5:22-23
  10. all goodness - Ephesians 5:9-10 (KJV) 
  11. all righteousness - Ephesians 5:9-10 (KJV) 
  12. all truth - Ephesians 5:9-10 (KJV) 

I believe the 144,000 (church triumphant/temple that God and His Son dwell in, the Throne of God and His Son) come from the SDA church from it's inception which is the start of the Ten Virgin Parable and correlates with the story of Queen Esther. The 144,000 are the "SECOND EVE" or the Mother of Christ's spiritual children. The 144,000 represent the door, the 12 doors that go into the City of God, the 4 doors on each side of the City of God. The doors are doors of truth that are given by each of the Son's of Jacob spoken of in Revelation 7:4-8.

The 12 DOORS in the CITY OF GOD or NEW JERUSALEM that comes down out of Heaven as a Bride adorned for her husband are called:

  1. Juda
  2. Reuben
  3. Gad
  4. Aser
  5. Nephthalim
  6. Manasses
  7.  Simeon
  8. Levi
  9. Issachar 
  10. Zabulon
  11. Joseph
  12. Benjamin
These are the NAMES of the DOORS that the GREAT MULTITUDE ENTER INTO THE CITY OF GOD OR THE CITY OF TRUTH THROUGH. SPIRITUAL ROYAL KINGS AND PRIESTS OF GOD LIKE or represented by or symbolized by Melchizedek. The voice crying in the wilderness. Obscurity. Royal Priests of the two tables or two charts given in 1843 and 1850.

Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Rev 7:5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.

Rev 7:6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

Rev 7:7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.

Rev 7:8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.


 They are spiritual Sons and Daughters of Jacob, the SDA APOSTLES meaning leaders during this 170 year time frame who live and give the 3 angels messages and keep the 7th day Sabbath from sundown Friday to Sundown Saturday. 

There may be other Bible stories that fit the bill along with Queen Esther as well. Remember Queen Esther was without Mother and Father as well as Melchizedek.The "those who had died in faith under the third angel's message, keeping the Sabbath" DURING THE TIME OF THEIR PRIESTLY SERVICE similar to the Levites serving in the temple during their lifetimes. These 144,000 I believe could be formed only after Christ died and arose again on the third day. The 144,000 are Kings and Priests OF the 1844 and 1850 charts or tables given to our early pioneers or in other words the 1st, 2nd and 3rd angels messages, which toward the end of time has the ADDITIONAL 4th angels mention of the corruptions that have been entering the SDA churches since 1844. SDA's have been granted GREAT LIGHT, GREAT TRUTH, that compares to Queen Vashti. Queen Vashti REFUSED to show her BEAUTY when the King commanded her to do so. SDA's have REFUSED to show or share the beauty of the great truths given to them in 1844 time frame. Yet all through this apostasy, God has had a church. Individual people who ARE living during or "UNDER" the "third angel's message, keeping the Sabbath" EW 285.1  from 1831 until probation closes for the world = all of these who have died during the time of their Royal Priestly Melchizedek symbolized service or soon to be martyred - (a few may never die) similar to the Dark Ages being repeated will all be raised about 15 days (the 1/2 hour space of silence in Heaven) prior to Christ's return to stand before God, spotless to be alive when Christ returns the 2nd time to gather the Saints. 

"Then we heard the voice of God which shook the heavens and the earth, and gave the 144,000 the day and hour of Jesus coming." Portland, April 6, 1846. BROADSIDE APR.06, 1846:


"The graves were opened, and those who had died in faith under the third angel's message, keeping the Sabbath, came forth from their dusty beds, glorified, to hear the COVENANT OF PEACE that God was to make with those who had kept His law.Early Writings, p. 285.1


THE ORIGINAL SDA DOCTRINE

Originally it was the official belief of the SDA Church that the sealing of the 144,000 commenced in 1844 and will go on until the close of probation.

Just a few statements, quoted hereunder, are sufficient to confirm the original belief:

1. J. Bates:

"Now all advent believers that have, and do, participate in the advent messages as given in Rev. 14:6-13, will love and keep this covenant with God, and especially His Holy Sabbath, in this covenant; this is a part of the 144,000 now to be sealed.

"The other part are those who do not yet so well understand the advent doctrine; but are endeavoring to serve God with their whole hearts, and are willing, and will receive this covenant and Sabbath as soon as they hear it explained. These will constitute the 144,000 now to be sealed with 'a seal of the living God,' which sealing will bear them through this time of trouble."—A Seal of the Living God, pp. 61, 62.

2. S. N. Haskell:

"After the disappointment of 1844, the people of God saw . . . the binding claim of the fourth commandment as well as the nine other commands of the decalogue. The Sabbath reform commenced at that time; by 1848 it [the Sabbath reform] began to be recognized as the fulfillment of Revelation 7:1-4."—Bible Hand book, p. 88.

3. U. Smith:

"Those who die after having become identified with the third angel's message, are evidently numbered as a part of the 144,000; for this message is the same as the sealing message of Revelation 7, and by that message only 144,000 were sealed. But there are many who have had their entire religious experiences under this message, but have fallen in death. They die in the Lord, and hence are counted as sealed; for they will be saved. But the message results in the sealing of only 144,000; therefore these must be included in that number. Being raised in the special resurrection (Dan. 12:2; Rev. 1:7) which occurs when the voice of God is uttered from the temple, at the beginning of the seventh and last plague (Rev. 16:17; Joel 3:16; Heb. 12:26), they pass through the period of that plague, and hence may be said to come 'out of great tribulation' (Rev. 7:14), and having been raised from the grave only to mortal life, they take their stand with believers who have not died, and with them receive immortality at the last trump (1Cor. 15:52), being then, with the others, changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye. Thus, though they have passed through the grave, it can be said of them at last, that they are 'redeemed from among men' (Rev. 14:4), that is, from among the living; for the coming of Christ finds them among the living, waiting for the change to immortality, like those who have not died, and as if they themselves had never died."—Daniel and the Revelation, p. 634, footnote, 1905 edition.

4. J. White:

"Those who die under the third angel's message are a part of the 144,000; there are not 144,000 in addition to these, but these help make up that number. They are raised to mortal life shortly before Christ comes, and . . . are changed to immortality when Christ appears." RH Sept. 23, 1880.

5. J. N. Loughborough:

"If there is still a doubt of the resurrected Sabbath keepers' being numbered with the 144,000, consider the following from Sister White's words in 1909. At the General Conference in 1909, Elder Irwin had a stenographer accompany him in a call upon Sister White. He wished to ask her some questions, and have an exact copy of the words of the questions, and the replies. Among other questions was this one: 'Will those who have died in the message be among the 144,000?' In reply, Sister White said: 'Oh, yes, those who have died in the faith will be among the 144,000. I am clear on that matter.' These were the exact words of question and answer, as Brother Irwin permitted me to copy from his stenographer's report."—Questions on the Sealing Message, p. 17.

6. R. H. Johnson:

"Among those who shouted victory over the beast and over his image were those who had come forth from their graves in the special resurrection, and were seen on the sea of glass. They were 'the living saints, 144,000 in number."' RH July 27, 1905.

7. L. R. Conradi:

"In the same way, some will be resurrected from among the sleeping righteous who will complete the number of Israel according to Revelation 7."—Los Videntes y el Porvenir, p. 271.

8. W. C. White about E. G. White:

"Now to the question: Did Sister White teach that those who died in the message since 1844 and of whom it is said, 'Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth,' that they shall be members of the 144,000?

"I can assure you, my brother, that this was the belief and the teaching of Ellen G. White. Many times I have heard her make statements to this effect, and I am in possession of a letter to Brother Hastings who is mentioned on page 237 of Life Sketches in which she says plainly that his wife who had recently died would be a member of the 144,000.

"In a letter recently received from a brother in Reno, Nevada, reference is made to a statement in Elder Loughborough's book found on page 29 in which it is reported that Sister White said: 'Those who died in the faith will be among the 144,000. I am clear on that matter.'

"And I testify, my brother, that that is in perfect harmony with her writings, her sayings and her teachings throughout the years of her ministry." Letter of W. C. White, dated April 18, 1929.

9. Sabbath School Lesson of August 1, 1908:

"From this we may recognize that, at the coming of the Lord, all of the 144,000, as living saints, will be composed of those who have never seen death and those who have died during the preaching of the last message but have resurrected before the appearing of the Lord."—Retranslated from the German Sabbath School Quarterly.

10. SDA Encyclopedia:

"The Sabbath was identified with the sealing message of Rev elation 7, and as a result the Sabbath came to be seen as God's seal. 'The position of our people then,' said Loughborough, 'was that the sealing work at that time was going on, and that some of the 144,000 were then being sealed.' During the next few years, Ellen G. White repeatedly spoke of the sealing work currently in progress (EW 36-38, 44, etc.).

"Corollary to the belief that those who accepted the third angel's message and the Sabbath were being sealed, was the belief that any who died would not in that way forfeit membership in the 144,000 but would come forth in a special resurrection to join their brethren who remained alive to the coming of the Lord."—SDA Encyclopedia, pp. 915, 916.

"Ellen G. White identified the seal of God with the Sabbath in November, 1848 (Joseph Bates, A Seal of the Living God, pp. 24-26), and Bates wrote his book on the subject in 1849. Also in 1849 Mrs. White wrote that the sealing work was then going forward (Present Truth, 1:21, August 1849)."—SDA Encyclopedia, p. 1163.



DIVINE ROMANCE! GODLY LOVE FOR HIS PEOPLE! The prophet Isaiah saw the end-time saints as a wedding party.  He saw them going forth with lamps shining brightly, even in the midst of thick darkness. Everyone is to hear the last call to the marriage supper of the Lamb. . . . These words are for us! 

While many will fall away (five foolish virgins partake of and are surprised at the unholy feast of criticizing and faultfinding, tearing down the reputations of their fellow beings) the end-time saints will embrace the grand adventure and the divine romance (study, pray, memorize, sing and repeat the Spirit filled Words of the precious Bible verse promises - they are filled with the language of Heaven which is a "Thus Saith the Lord" and a "It is Written"). They will take center stage in this climactic time of witness. They will have their eyes on the Mighty One of Israel. Like our Apostle Paul they will, "Press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus". -Phil. 3:14 NKJV


The Everlasting Covenant of God – the paid Bride price – the highest price ever paid for a bride – paid by his life blood. This is the central drama of the 70th week. 

Queen Esther represents the 144,000. 

Queen Vashti represents the five foolish laodicean virgins who refuse to give "The truths that we (Adventists) received in 1841, '42, '43, and '44 [that] are now [2015-2016] to be studied and proclaimed. The messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future [now=2015-2016] be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit." {15MR 317.1}. "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} 



  1. The 144,000 are the Bride of Christ, part of a special wedding party procession. 
  2. “The great issue so near at hand (Sunday Law) will weed out those whom God has not appointed, and He will have a pure, true, sanctified ministry prepared for the latter rain.” (Manuscript Releases, vol. 12, p.327)

     

    “Only those who have withstood temptation in the strength of the Mighty One will be permitted to act a part in proclaiming it (the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th angels message) when it shall have swelled into the Loud Cry.” (Review and Herald, Nov.19, 1908).

  3. The parable of the Ten Virgins parallels the experience of the Seventh-day Adventist church from 1841 until Christ returns with a shout.
  4. The 144,000 are priests - chosen as Brides for His Son by God Himself
  5. Psalm 110:4 "The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek." Hebrews 5:6 "As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec." Hebrews 5:10 "Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec." Hebrews 3:1 "Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest." 
  6.   

  7. "The number of His subjects is made up; "the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven," is about to be given to the heirs of salvation, and Jesus is to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords.--GC 613, 614 (1911).  {LDE 254.1}
  1. The 144,000 began to be numbered as leaders of the historical truths of Adventism October 22, 1844. See (Psalm 68:24 “Your PROCESSION, God, has come into view (October 22, 1844), the procession of my God and King into the sanctuary.”)

    We as a Adventist people should have obeyed the third angels message and stayed in "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}


Hosea 6:2 “After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.”

Through Christ's victory humanity inherits adoption into God family and the promise of eternal life. Sin and death came from Adam while righteousness and life came from Christ.

God Has Jewels in All Churches

God has jewels in all the churches, and it is not for us to make sweeping denunciation of the professed religious world.--4BC 1184 (1893).

The Lord has His representatives in all the churches. These persons have not had the special testing truths for these last days presented to them under circumstances that brought conviction to heart and mind; therefore they have not, by rejecting light, severed their connection with God.--6T 70, 71 (1900).

Among the Catholics there are many who are most conscientious Christians and who walk in all the light that shines upon them, and God will work in their behalf.--9T 243 (1909).

In the eighteenth chapter of the Revelation the people of God are called upon to come out of Babylon. According to this scripture, many of God's people must still be in Babylon. And in what religious bodies are the greater part of the followers of Christ now to be found? Without doubt, in the various churches professing the Protestant faith.--GC 383 (1911).  

Notwithstanding the spiritual darkness and alienation from God that exist in the churches which constitute Babylon, the great body of Christ's true followers are still to be found in their communion.--GC 390 (1911).  

Babylon's Fall Not Yet Complete

"She made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication" (Rev. 14:6-8). How is this done? By forcing men to accept a spurious sabbath.--8T 94 (1904).

Not yet, however, can it be said that . . . "she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication." She has not yet made all nations do this. . . . Not until this condition shall be reached, and the union of the church with the world shall be fully accomplished throughout Christendom, will the fall of Babylon be complete. The change is a progressive one, and the perfect fulfilment of Revelation 14:8 is yet future.--GC 389, 390 (1911).

When do her sins reach unto heaven [Rev. 18:2-5]? When the law of God is finally made void by legislation.--ST June 12, 1893.

God's Last Warning Message 

God has given the messages of Revelation 14 their place in the line of prophecy and their work is not to cease till the close of this earth's history.--EGW'88 804 (1890).

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 will be called upon to separate from her communion. This message is the last that will ever be given to the world.--GC 390 (1911).

[Rev. 18:1, 2, 4, quoted.] This scripture points forward to a time when the announcement of the fall of Babylon, as made by the second angel of Revelation 14 (verse 8), is to be repeated, with the additional mention of the corruptions which have been entering the various organisations that constitute Babylon, since that message was first given, in the summer of 1844. . . . These announcements, uniting with the third angel's message, constitute the final warning to be given to the inhabitants of the earth. . . .

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. By these solemn warnings the people will be stirred. Thousands upon thousands will listen who have never heard words like these.--GC 603, 604, 606 (1911).

The Heart of God's Last Message

Several have written to me, inquiring if the message of justification by faith is the third angel's message, and I have answered, "It is the third angel's message in verity."--1SM 372 (1890).

The Lord in His great mercy sent a most precious message to His people through Elders [E.J.] Waggoner and [A. T.] 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.--TM 91, 92 (1895). 

The message of Christ's righteousness is to sound from one end of the earth to the other to prepare the way of the Lord. This is the glory of God, which closes the work of the third angel.--6T 19 (1900).

The last message of mercy to be given to the world is a revelation of His character of love. The children of God are to manifest His glory. In their own life and character they are to reveal what the grace of God has done for them.--COL 415, 416 (1900).

The Message Will Go With Great Power

As the third message swells to a loud cry and as great power and glory attend the closing work, the faithful people of God will partake of that glory. It is the latter rain which revives and strengthens them to pass through the time of trouble.--7BC 984 (1862).

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

This message [Rev. 14:9-12] embraces the two preceding messages. It is represented as being given with a loud voice; that is, with the power of the Holy Spirit.--7BC 980 (1900).

As the third angel's message swells into a loud cry, great power and glory will attend its proclamation. The faces of God's people will shine with the light of heaven.--7T 17 (1902).

Amidst the deepening shadows of earth's last great crisis, God's light will shine brightest, and the song of hope and trust will be heard in clearest and loftiest strains.--Ed 166 (1903).

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

Like the 1844 Movement

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

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

Like the Day of Pentecost

It is with an earnest longing that I look forward to the time when the events of the Day of Pentecost shall be repeated with even greater power than on that occasion. John says, "I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory" [Rev. 18:1]. Then, as at the Pentecostal season, the people will hear the truth spoken to them, every man in his own tongue.--6BC 1055 (1886).

In visions of the night, representations passed before me of a great reformatory movement among God's people. Many were praising God. The sick were healed, and other miracles were wrought. A spirit of intercession was seen, even as was manifested before the great Day of Pentecost.--9T 126 (1909).  

The great work of the gospel is not to close with less manifestation of the power of God than marked its opening. The prophecies which were fulfilled in the outpouring of the former rain at the opening of the gospel, are again to be fulfilled in the latter rain at its close. . . . 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.--GC 611, 612 (1911).

God Will Employ Agencies That Will Surprise Us

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.--TM 300 (1885).

Do not imagine that it will be possible to lay out plans for the future. Let God be acknowledged as standing at the helm at all times and under every circumstance. He will work by means that will be suitable, and will maintain, increase, and build up His own people.--CW 71 (1895).

The Comforter is to reveal Himself, not in any specified, precise way that man may mark out, but in the order of God--in unexpected times and ways that will honour His own name.--EGW'88 1478 (1896).

He will raise up from among the common people men and women to do His work, even as of old He called fishermen to be His disciples. There will soon be an awakening that will surprise many. Those who do not realise the necessity of what is to be done will be passed by, and the heavenly messengers will work with those who are called the common people, fitting them to carry the truth to many places.--15MR 312 (1905).

Labourers Qualified by the Holy Spirit

In the last solemn work few great men will be engaged. . . . God will work a work in our day that but few anticipate. He will raise up and exalt among us those who are taught rather by the unction of His Spirit than by the outward training of scientific institutions. These facilities are not to be despised or condemned; they are ordained of God, but they can furnish only the exterior qualifications. God will manifest that He is not dependent on learned, self-important mortals.--5T 80, 82 (1882).

To souls that are earnestly seeking for light and that accept with gladness every ray of divine illumination  from His holy Word, to such alone light will be given. It is through these souls that God will reveal that light and power which will lighten the whole earth with His glory.--5T 729 (1889).

It is discipline of spirit, cleanness of heart and thought that is needed. This is of more value than brilliant talent, tact, or knowledge. An ordinary mind, trained to obey a "Thus saith the Lord," is better qualified for God's work than are those who have capabilities but do not employ them rightly.--RH Nov. 27, 1900.

The labourers 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, declaring the words which God gives them.--GC 606 (1911).

God Uses Even the Illiterate

Those who receive Christ as a personal Saviour will stand the test and trial of these last days. Strengthened by unquestioning faith in Christ, even the illiterate disciple will be able to withstand the doubts and questions that infidelity can produce, and put to blush the sophistries of scorners.

The Lord Jesus will give the disciples a tongue and wisdom that their adversaries can neither gainsay nor resist. Those who could not, by reasoning, overcome satanic delusions will bear an affirmative testimony that will baffle supposedly learned men. Words will come from the lips of the unlearned with such convincing power and wisdom that conversions will be made to the truth. Thousands will be converted under their testimony.

Why should the illiterate man have this power, which the learned man has not? The illiterate one, through faith in Christ, has come into the atmosphere of pure, clear truth, while the learned man has turned away from the truth. The poor man is Christ's witness. He cannot appeal to histories or to so-called high science, but he gathers from the Word of God powerful evidence. The truth that he speaks under the inspiration of the Spirit is so pure and remarkable and carries with it a power so indisputable that his testimony cannot be gainsaid.--8MR 187, 188 (1905).

Children Proclaim the Message

Many, even among the uneducated, now proclaim the words of the Lord. Children are impelled by the Spirit to go forth and declare the message from heaven. The Spirit is poured out upon all who will yield to its promptings and, casting off all man's machinery, his binding rules and cautious methods, they will declare the truth with the might of the Spirit's power.--Ev 700 (1895).

When the heavenly intelligences see that men will no longer present the truth in simplicity as did Jesus, the very children will be moved upon by the Spirit of God and will go forth proclaiming the truth for this time.--SW 66 (1895).

The Ministry of Angels

The angels of heaven are moving upon human minds to arouse investigation in the themes of the Bible. A far greater work will be done than has yet been done and none of the glory of it will flow to men, for angels that minister to those who shall be heirs of salvation are working night and day.--CW 140 (1875).

There are many men in our world who are like Cornelius. . . . As God worked for Cornelius, so He works for these true standard-bearers. . . . They will obtain a knowledge of God as Cornelius did through the visitation of angels from heaven.--Letter 197, 1904.

When divine power is combined with human effort, the work will spread like fire in the stubble. God will employ agencies whose origin man will be unable to discern. Angels will do a work which men might have had the blessing of accomplishing had they not neglected to answer the claims of God.--1SM 118 (1885).  

World-wide Extent of the Proclamation

The angel who unites in the proclamation of the third angel's message is to lighten the whole earth with his glory. A work of world-wide extent and unwonted power is here foretold. . . . 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.--GC 611, 612 (1911).

The message of the angel following the third is now to be given to all parts of the world. It is to be the harvest message, and the whole earth will be lighted with the glory of God.--Letter 86, 1900.

When the storm of persecution really breaks upon us, . . . then will the message of the third angel swell to a loud cry, and the whole earth will be lightened with the glory of the Lord.--6T 401 (1900).

In every city in America the truth is to be proclaimed. In every country of the world the warning message is to be given.--GCB March 30, 1903.

During the loud cry the church, aided by the providential interpositions of her exalted Lord, will diffuse the knowledge of salvation so abundantly that light will be communicated to every city and town.--Ev 694 (1904).

A crisis is right upon us. We must now by the Holy Spirit's power proclaim the great truths for these last days. It will not be long before everyone will have heard the warning and made his decision. Then shall the end come.--6T 24 (1900).


Kings, Legislators, Councils, Hear the Message

It does not seem possible to us now that any should have to stand alone, but if God has ever spoken by me, the time will come when we shall be brought before councils and before thousands for His name's sake, and each one will have to give the reason of his faith. Then will come the severest criticism upon every position that has been taken for the truth. We need, then, to study the Word of God, that we may know why we believe the doctrines we advocate.--RH Dec. 18, 1888.

Many will have to stand in the legislative courts; some will have to stand before kings and before the learned of the earth to answer for their faith. Those who have only a superficial understanding of truth will not be able clearly to expound the Scriptures and give definite reasons for their faith. They will become confused and will not be workmen that need not to be ashamed. Let no one imagine that he has no need to study because he is not to preach in the sacred desk. You know not what God may require of you.--FE 217 (1893).

Many Adventists Brace Themselves Against the Light

There is to be in the [Seventh-day Adventist] churches a wonderful manifestation of the power of God, but it will not move upon those who have not humbled themselves before the Lord, and opened the door  of the heart by confession and repentance. In the manifestation of that power which lightens the earth with the glory of God, they will see only something which in their blindness they think dangerous, something which will arouse their fears, and they will brace themselves to resist it. Because the Lord does not work according to their ideas and expectations they will oppose the work. "Why," they say, "should we not know the Spirit of God, when we have been in the work so many years?"--RH Extra, Dec. 23, 1890.

The third angel's message will not be comprehended, the light which will lighten the earth with its glory will be called a false light, by those who refuse to walk in its advancing glory.--RH May 27, 1890.

Most Non-Adventists Will Reject the Warning

Many who hear the message--by far the greatest number--will not credit the solemn warning. Many will be  found disloyal to the commandments of God, which are a test of character. The Lord's servants will be called enthusiasts. Ministers will warn the people not to listen to them. Noah received the same treatment while the Spirit of God was urging him to give the message, whether men would hear or whether they would forbear.--TM 233 (1895).

Some will listen to these warnings, but by the vast majority they will be disregarded.--HP 343 (1897).

The popular ministry, like the Pharisees of old, filled with anger as their authority is questioned, will denounce the message as of Satan, and stir up the sin-loving multitudes to revile and persecute those who proclaim it.--GC 607 (1911).

Multitudes Will Answer the Call

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.--EW 279 (1858).

There will be an army of steadfast believers who will stand as firm as a rock through the last test.--3SM 390 (1888).

There are many souls to come out of the ranks of the world, out of the churches--even the Catholic Church--whose zeal will far exceed that of those who have stood in rank and file to proclaim the truth heretofore.--3SM 386, 387 (1889).

Multitudes will receive the faith and join the armies of the Lord.--Ev 700 (1895). Many who have strayed from the fold will come back to follow the great Shepherd.--6T 401 (1900).

In heathen Africa, in the Catholic lands of Europe and of South America, in China, in India, in the islands of the sea, and in all the dark corners of the earth, God has in reserve a firmament of chosen ones that will yet shine forth amidst the darkness, revealing clearly to an apostate world the transforming power of obedience to His law. Even now they are appearing in every nation, among every tongue and people; and in the hour of deepest apostasy, when Satan's supreme effort is made to cause "all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond," to receive, under penalty of death, the sign of allegiance to a false rest day, these faithful ones, "blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke," will "shine as lights in the world."--PK 188, 189 (c. 1914).

Thousands Converted in a Day

Thousands in the eleventh hour will see and acknowledge the truth. . . . These conversions to truth will be made with a rapidity that will surprise the church, and God's name alone will be glorified.--2SM 16 (1890).

There will be thousands converted to the truth in a day who at the eleventh hour see and acknowledge the truth and the movements of the Spirit of God.--EGW'88 755 (1890).

The time is coming when there will be as many converted in a day as there were on the Day of Pentecost, after the disciples had received the Holy Spirit.--Ev 692 (1905).

The Honest-in-Heart Will Not Hesitate Long

A good many do not see it now, to take their position, but these things are influencing their lives, and when the message goes with a loud voice they will be ready for it. They will not hesitate long; they will come out and take their position.--Ev 300, 301 (1890).

Soon the last test is to come to all inhabitants of the earth. At that time prompt decisions will be made. Those who have been convicted under the presentation of the Word will range themselves under the bloodstained banner of Prince Emmanuel.--9T 149 (1909).

Every truly honest soul will come to the light of truth.--GC 522 (1911).

The message will be carried not so much by argument as by the deep conviction of the Spirit of God. The arguments have been presented. The seed has been sown, and now it will spring up and bear fruit. The publications distributed by missionary workers have exerted their influence, yet many whose minds were impressed have been prevented from fully comprehending the truth or from yielding obedience. Now the rays of light penetrate everywhere, the truth is seen in its clearness, and the honest children of God sever the bands which have held them. Family connections, church relations, are powerless to stay them now. Truth is more precious than all besides. Notwithstanding the agencies combined against the truth, a large number take their stand upon the Lord's side.--GC 612 (1911).

Influence of the Printed Page

More than one thousand will soon be converted in one day, most of whom will trace their first convictions to the reading of our publications.--Ev 693 (1885).

The results of the circulation of this book [ The Great Controversy ] are not to be judged by what now appears. By reading it some souls will be aroused and will have courage to unite themselves at once with those who keep the commandments of God. But a much larger number who read it will not take their position until they see the very events taking place that are foretold in it. The fulfilment of some of the predictions will inspire faith that others also will come to pass, and when the earth is lightened with the glory of the Lord in the closing work, many souls will take their position on the commandments of God as the result of this agency.--CM 128, 129 (1890).

In a large degree through our publishing houses is to be accomplished the work of that other angel who comes down from heaven with great power and who lightens the earth with his glory [Rev. 18:1].--7T 140 (1902).

The Latter Rain IS Testing, Perfecting Messages, the LOUD CRY growing in strength and power and will soon fill the whole earth with it's glory. The Sunday Law is upon us - the beginning of the enforcement of it - 'climate chaos' is what is ushering in the Sunday law into our legislative branches in the USA today. 

The 500 days until 'climate chaos' started on March 13, 2014 and ends on Sept 26 2015 when Jesuit Pope Francis addresses the Festival of Families to urge setting aside a day for "Families", a day of worship, on Sunday. You can search for the phrase "500 day countdown until 'climate chaos' " and see tons of stories about this event. 

The Pope is promising a "punch" for those who do things like pass out the Great Controversy book: http://www.hightime1311.com/prophetic-events/pope-promises-protestants-a-punch-for-preaching-prophecies-exposing-popery/

"The Sabbath will be the great test of loyalty, for it is the point of truth especially controverted. When the final test shall be brought to bear upon men, then the line of distinction will be drawn between those who serve God and those who serve Him not. While the observance of the false sabbath in compliance with the law of the state, contrary to the fourth commandment, will be an avowal of allegiance to a power that is in opposition to God, the keeping of the true Sabbath, in obedience to God's law, is an evidence of loyalty to the Creator. While one class, by accepting the sign of submission to earthly powers, receive the mark of the beast, the other choosing the token of allegiance to divine authority, receive the seal of God.

Heretofore those who presented the truths of the third angel's message have often been regarded as mere alarmists. Their predictions that religious intolerance would gain control in the United States, that church and state would unite to persecute those who keep the commandments of God, have been pronounced groundless and absurd. It has been confidently declared that this land could never become other than what it has been--the defender of religious freedom. But as the question of enforcing Sunday observance is widely agitated, the event so long doubted and disbelieved is seen to be approaching, and the third message will produce an effect which it could not have had before.http://www.whiteestate.org/books/gc/gc38.html


The Loud Cry has been being given since 1888. The Loud Cry is GROWING in power and will very soon fill the WHOLE WORLD, like the rock that smites the image of Daniel 2 grows and fills the whole earth. This rock is the Holy City (144,000), Christ's Righteousness, come down out of Heaven into the minds of His People that have joined themselves to His mind in the Most Holy Place of the Sanctuary. The 144,000 are Royal Kings and Priests (after the order of the Melchisedek priesthood - Hebrews 7:11) of the 2 charts - the 1843 and 1850 charts given to original SDA pioneers from Oct 22, 1844 forevermore. (are a part of the 144,000 - Adventist priests - vegan leaders of the three angels messages - the two charts 1843 and 1850 wings given to the woman).

Hi Brother Ron,

I believe I saw on your site, a statement or quote from Ellen White in DA about the 12 apostles being a part of the 144,000. Do you happen to have any quotes about this? I have not found any yet, but keep remembering you stating this...

May God bless you. Thanking you in advance for your assistance. :)

Thank you Brother for your prompt reply. I may just be thick, but can you elaborate on how this page mentioned says the 12 apostles are the bride of Christ? Here's a link to the page for quick reference: http://text.egwwritings.org/publication.php?pubtype=Book&bookCode=DA&lang=en&collection=2&section=all&pagenumber=179&QUERY=da+bride+of+Christ&resultId=2 

Any other witness quotes would be appreciated as well. I have found something very very interesting...but keep thinking of you mentioning this quote, and wanted to study it out further. Thank you for your assistance.

You're welcome. Sorry that I took too much for granted. Here is a more thorough explanation. If you have further question(s) I will be glad to respond:

 

"He said, “A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before Him. He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice.” John represented himself as the friend who acted as a messenger between the betrothed parties, preparing the way for the marriageWhen the bridegroom had received his bride, the mission of the friend was fulfilled. He rejoiced in the happiness of those whose union he had promoted. So John had been called to direct the people to Jesus, and it was his joy to witness the success of the Saviour’s work. He said, “This my joy therefore is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease.” Desire of Ages, 179.

 

Any mention of the bride in regard to John the Baptist must refer to the disciples, because they would be the ones who awakened the 10 virgins. This is proven by the following evidence:

 

Zion (Sion) is the perfect church in heaven, Heb. 12:22, 23 (men made perfect). That is the 144,000 BLAMELESS. Rev. 14:1-4. The bride is the church triumphant who represents that heavenly JERUSALEM church.


"The members of the church triumphant--the church in heaven--will be permitted to draw near to the members of the church militant (501c3 Adventists)to aid them in their necessity." E. G. White, The Southern Watchman, Sep. 8, 1903.


Church Triumphant - "Those who think that the church militant is the church triumphant make a GREAT mistake." E.G. White, The Upward Look, 152. 

"Compassion beamed from his [Christ's] countenance, and his conduct was characterized by grace, humility, truth, and love. Every member of his church militant must manifest the same qualities, if he would join the church triumphant." {RH, November 17, 1891 par. 12}


The 144,000 (Royal Kings and Priests symbolized by Melchizedek King of Salem/Jerusalem now meaning Kings and Priests of the Adventist message of the three angels messages the two charts/tables given in 1843 and 1850) have existed AT THE TIME OF THEIR PRIESTLY SERVICE - during the TIME they LIVE on earth since Christ became our High Priest in the Heavenly Sanctuary

  • Melchizedek - Hebrews 7:11 "If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest (144,000 are the Throne of God and His Son) should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?" 
  • Springs of living Water (truth) issues out of the Throne of God (144,000/Bride/Zion/Mt Zion/Church Triumphant/City of God/Elect of God/Second Eve/Stone with 7 Eyes/7 angels/7 pipes/channels/mediums for Christ and His Father's Spirit) springs of living water from their bellies (like the bosom of God = Christ was begotten from God's bosom = the Word of God = Truth = the perpetual Royal Law of God) - the crystal sea of glass represents the "Great Multitude", the 5 wise virgins, the Sons and Daughters of God and the "GUESTS" at the wedding supper of the Bride and Groom IN HIS FATHERS HOUSE, the HOLY CITY, the NEW JERUSALEM, THE ROCK that comes down and smites the feet of the image in Daniel 2 is the Three Angels messages - is the Gospel of Christ since Christ was smitten of God and resurrected now the NEW priesthood, the Kings and Priests of the Heavenly Sanctuary is the joining of the mind to Christ in the Most Holy Place, the Secret Dwelling place of the Most High (Psalms 91).
The sea of Glass with the two trunks of the Tree of Life on either side joined at the top = joined by claiming the Word of God's precious promises, learning the language of Heaven - eating the leaves (Bible promises) for the healing of sin from the churches/nations/our body/temple... The sea of Glass has OAKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (144,000) aka CEDARS OF LEBANON (144,000) lining the river/sea of Glass coming out of the Throne of God (144,000) minds that are JOINED by following Christ by HIS Faith into the Heavenly Sanctuary into the MOST HOLY PLACE, the mind of Christ in us, HIS WORDS. Christ says MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT (John 6:63) and Christ only says the WORDS that were given to Him by His Father and God to speak to us as God's representative reconciling us back to God when we eat/claim/do the WORDS found in the Holy Bible. Precious Bible Promises according to 2 Peter 1:4.

 

Heb 12:22   But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 

Heb 12:23   To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 

 

The Church Triumphant (BRIDE) has always existed on earth to come to the aid of the church militant if that church will accept her aid:

 

 "The members of the church triumphant--the church in heaven--will be permitted to draw near to the members of the church militant, to aid them in their necessity." E. G. White, The Southern Watchman, Sep. 8, 1903.

 

"Characteristics of True Reformers.--Here [Isa. 58:11-14] are given the characteristics of those who shall be reformers, who will bear the banner of the third angel's message, those who avow themselves God's commandment-keeping people, and who honor God, and are earnestly engaged, in the sight of all the universe, in building up the old waste places. Who is it that calls them, The repairer of the breach, The restorers of paths to dwell in? It is God. Their names are registered [written--Heb. 12:22, 23] in heaven as reformers, restorers, as raising the foundations of many generations." E. G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 4, 1151, & Review and Herald, Oct. 13, 1891.

 

"The marriage represents the reception by Christ of His kingdom. The Holy City, the New Jerusalem, which is the capital and REPRESENTATIVE of the kingdom, is called 'the bride, the Lamb's wife.' ...Clearly, then,the bride REPRESENTS [speaks on behalf of] the Holy City, and the [ten] virgins that go out to meet the bridegroom are a symbol of the church [militant body consisting of wheat and tares, wise and foolish, while the bride is the representative of the "invisible" church triumphant on earth and the heavenly kingdom church of Hebrews 12:22, 23]. In the Revelation the people of God are said to be the guests at the marriage supper. Revelation 19:9. If guests, they cannot be represented also as the bride. Christ, as stated by the prophet Daniel, will receive from the Ancient of Days in heaven, 'dominion, and glory, and a kingdom' He will receive the NEW JERUSALEM, the capital of His kingdom, 'prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.'" E. G. White, The Great Controversy, 426, 427, the 1911 Edition.

 

The ten virgins are guests. The 144,000 are leader types who go into the Temple on Mt. Zion as lesser priests while Jesus is the High Priest during the Millennium. (See EW, p. 19).

 

In Isaiah 62:1-5, Zion is the bride. She has sons and daughters if you read on. In verses 11, 12, it is her voice that gives the Loud Cry.

 

In Christ’s Object Lessons, 405, 406, ALL TEN virgins are awakened by the voice of God, AND THE VOICE OF THE BRIDE. That distinguishes the bride from the 10 virgins. The Hebrew for the word virgin in Isaiah 62:5 is bethulah which mean a strictly pure virgin, whereas the 10 virgins could be concubines if you do a word study on the word in a Lexicon.


Queen Esther represents the 144,000, the Bride of Christ, and the 10 virgins represent the Seventh-day Adventist experience from 1841 until Christ returns:

(the Ten Virgins divide, just as the Adventist group divides in the end. The five foolish virgins bury their talent and refuse to show the beauty of the great truths given to them like Queen Vashti refused to show her beauty to the King's princes from his Providences. The foolish virgins become offshoots from the truth by forming a "new organization" a 501c3 tax exempt, non-prophet or non-profit organization in 1936 and again in 1950. ) more about this here: https://sites.google.com/site/theendtimewarning/sundayworshipsda


Esther 2:14 "In the evening she went, and on the morrow she returned into the second house of the women, to the custody of Shaashgaz, the king's chamberlain, which kept the concubines: she came in unto the king no more, except the king delighted in her, and that she were called by name." 


501c3 individual members who come OUT of this offshoot SDA organization - are the CONCUBINES called individually BY NAME by God Himself when they obey the truths given to them by the 144,000 angels. The 501c3 SDA offshoot  "new organization" has been official since 1936 when they asked to join church and state by applying for and receiving a non-profit status. Now they are forever trapped. Modern 501c3 SDA's will have to bow to the demands of the Federal government and perform same sex marriages, women ordination and keep Sunday holy as the mark of the beast (marriage and Sabbath attacked, the twin institutions) or have their 501c3 status revoked by the Papacy controlled IRS. IRS will demand ALL the back taxes with penalties and interest back to 1936. Since this amount will be so huge, the Papacy run IRS will confiscate all properties and businesses operated and owned under the auspices of this 501c3 SDA church. Officers of the corporation/non-profit entity and it's members are also liable for this as I understand it.


  1. new organization would be 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 - see more info below about this}

 

Zion is the PERFECT, BLAMELESS BRIDE, PHILADELPHIA, the 144,000 (Rev. 14:1-4).

 

Isa 62:1 ¶ For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. 

Isa 62:2   And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name. 

Isa 62:3   Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. 

Isa 62:4   Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall bemarried. 

Isa 62:5   For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee

Isa 62:6 ¶ I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, 

Isa 62:7   And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. 

Isa 62:8   The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured: 

Isa 62:9   But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness. 

Isa 62:10 ¶ Go through, go through the (12) gates (into the City of God); prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones (144,000); lift up a standard for the people.  [BUILDING UP THE WASTE PLACES]

Isa 62:11   Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion ("guest", "5 wise virgins", "Sons and Daughter's of God" aka SDA's who come out of 501c3 churches and join the banquet hall before the door is shut like the 5 wise virgins did), Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. 

Isa 62:12   And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city (Holy City with 12 gates/New Jerusalem/144,000) not forsaken. 

 

  • Ron B said:
     I believe that Philadelphians of all ages are regenerated to be the bride at the end-time.
  • God's promises of Revelation 3:10-12 is ALSO made to Philadelphians of the first century PHILADELPHIAN CHURCH. Rev. 3:10-12 says they are made PILLARS [LEADERS] IN THE TEMPLE. Ellen White says that only the 144,000 enter the Temple on Mt. Zion. Early Writings, p. 19.
  • I believe reincarnation is Satan's counterfeit of regeneration.
  • Christ was the firstfruits of those rasied from the dead, and His bride, the 144,000 are second, third, fourth, etc., etc. This accords with James White's statement you quoted below.
  •  I believe the regeneration of the bride occurs in time for her voice to give the final Loud Cry.
  •  I believe she (THE BRIDE) is PHILADELPHIA, who is kept through the time of trouble.
  • I believe she (THE BRIDE)  lives through the 7 last plagues and until a final death decree per GC, 635.
  • Ellen White says that the plagues are blamed on God's people. She says that the 144,000 must live a period of time WITHOUT AN INTERCESSOR, which has to be after Christ leaves the Most Holy Place, for that is when probation closes, and the plagues begin at that time.
  • Surely Christ won't tell His disciples that they can't be the bride of Christ just because they were born in the wrong generation. Indeed, DA 179, refers to the bride which John the Baptist prepared for Christ.
  • There is more than one death decree. On day 1260 after the Sunday Law, a 30 day warning time will be given, specifying that all who won't accept the mark on day 1290 will be put to death. I believe there will by martyrs for 45 days until day 1335.
  • I believe all the guests will be martyred, for only the 144,000 are translated without seeing death. If the guests survived until Jesus comes, they would be translated without seeing death as well, and that would contradict Ellen White's statement that only the 144,000 are translated without seeing death.
  • I believe Ezekiel 9 for Adventists will be from day 1290 to 1335.
  • I believe Ezekiel 9 for the world AND BABYLON, will be at the very end. GC 653-656 is when BABYLON IS RIPE FOR DESTRUCTION, per last paragraph p. 653.

    Subject: Re: the disciples a part of the 144,000

    Thank you thank you for replying with this extremely interesting information. I would love to be able to study with you about this - if you do not mind. I want to reply to your email with some of the very very interesting things God has shown me...it fits very well with what you've sent...except the part - that I want more information on - is what you said here: "must refer to the disciples, because they would be the ones who awakened the 10 virgins" and "The Church Triumphant (BRIDE) has always existed on earth to come to the aid of the church militant if that church will accept her aid:"

    I am not discounting anything you have said, I just want to see it plainly in a quote (I like inference - but want plain Bible/SOP if available) - and I feel it may be there, I just have not found it yet. One reason I say this is because of what Elder James Springer White said "Those who die under the third angel's message are a part of the 144,000; there are not 144,000 in addition to these, but these help make up that number.They are raised to mortal life shortly before Christ comes, and . . . are changed to immortality when Christ appears." James S. White, RH Sept. 23, 1880. 

    Now, correct me if I am wrong, but I take "UNDER the third angels message" AND "KEEPING THE SABBATH" in the following quote below to mean, the SDA leaders who are living and giving the foundational truths in "'41, '42, '43 and 1844" 15MR 317.1, and AFTER this time, ARE a "PART OF" the 144,000.

    All of the 144,000 who are sleeping are raised. Only the 144,000 hear the covenant of peace? - possibly some of their SPIRITUAL symbolized "Sons and Daughters" aka "5 wise virgins": The graves were opened, and those who had died in faith under the third angel’s message, keeping the Sabbath, came forth from their dusty beds, glorified, to hear the covenant of peace that God (about 15 days prior to Christ's 2nd appearing/1/2 space of silence in Heaven) was to make with those who had kept His law. {EW 285.1}

    Christ comes on the death degree day for those who will not bow to the false gods worship and Sunday worship is how I understand it. And about 15 days prior to this degree being enforced with deadly force - on a certain day, God the Father speaks and says IT IS DONE, and gives the day and hour of Christ's coming? Which is about 15 days in the future from the day Christ stands up and says IT IS FINISHED. Then the 144,000 and those who are alive - of the great multitude who are symbolized as spiritual "Sons and Daughters" aka "5 wise virgins" aka "GUESTS" as you pointed out are alive to see the 7 last plagues which we who are in the image of Christ/Character/thoughts and feelings are KEPT from the hour of trial spoken of in Revelation 3:10.

    I don't have time now to write - but thanks a million for replying and I am looking forward to studying out what you sent me. I think you will also like what I have found! It is just amazing to say the least.

    God bless you!

    Hello Brother Ron. I could not wait to study what you have sent (1:00 AM!). Can you elaborate more on this - specifically when you believe the 1260 days, the 1290 days and the 1335 days:

    "There is more than one death decree. On day 1260 after the Sunday Law, a 30 day warning time will be given, specifying that all who won't accept the mark on day 1290 will be put to death. I believe there will by martyrs for 45 days until day 1335."

    Thank you!

    Hi Cindy,
     
    Per Daniel 12, we find three time designations: 1260, 1290 and 1335, as you know. The way I interpret these days is as follows:
    • The Antichrist rules for 42 months (1260 days) from the inception (initial legislation) of the National Sunday Law, after the healing of the wound. 

    • Revelation 13:1-5. At first there will be no death decree, only fines and/or imprisonment for more than one, two or three violations etc. God's judgments will be falling on the earth during this time and they will increase in severity. Finally, toward the end of the 1260 days, they become very severe and it is decided that God's judgments are being poured out because Sunday sacredness is being violated. So on day 1260 AFTER the National Sunday Law is first legislated, there will be a 30 day warning given of a forthcoming death penalty to all who will not take the Mark--30 days to make up one's mind as to whether or not he/she will take the Mark, and at the end of that 30 days, all who won't take the Mark will be martyred. Some will be martyred for the right reasons and some will be martyred for the wrong reasons and be forever lost.
    • The time period from the inception of the National Sunday Law to the end of day 1260 will be the respite, just as the 3 1/2 years from A.D. 66-70 was a respite time for the Jews to flee to Pella in Perea.
    • Pella was a very lush place with an excellent spring water stream that flowed constantly. The Jews remained in the lush valley during the 3 1/2 years, but when news arrived that Titus was going to attack Jerusalem, the faithful Jews fled to the surrounding mountains of Pella. This is what God showed me. You are free to believe it or not. I won't be offended if you don't believe it.
    • Ellen White parallels the initial legislation of the National Sunday Law to the Roman General Cestius Gallus landing upon Jewish soil so many furlongs from the Temple in A. D. 66. The Roman ensign and soldiers landing on Jewish soil within that perimeter was considered the Abomination of Desolation. See 5T 451 and 464. She says it will then be time to move to smaller towns and villages preparatory to leaving for more secluded places in the mountains. WE WILL LEAVE FOR THE MORE SECLUDED PLACES from day 1260 to day 1290, because the first death decree will ensue on day 1290 AFTER THE 30 DAY WARNING.
    •  Dan 12:11   And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.  The 30 day warning of the death decree added to the 1260 day rule of the antichrist, verse 7, comes to day 1290, THE TIME OF THE FIRST DEATH DECREE. So during that 30 day time, we flee per Matthew 24:15, 16. We flee the abomination of desolation that is determined to kill the saints. If folk don't know when to flee, they could engage a time of harship beyond what is necessary.
    • The Loud Cry will go forth for the 1260 days after the initial legislation of the National Sunday Law. Property should be sold during this time and the money put into the Lord's work. We should work from more rural outposts during that time. The beauty of this scenario is that God does not spring anything upon His people. He gives them knowledge as to when to sell etc., and when to move to smaller places, and finally when to leave for the mountains and/or more secluded places. I have seen charts that instruct God's people to leave for the mountains at the legislation of the NationalSunday Law, and that will do nothing but create a time of unnecessary trouble and hardship BEFORE TIME.
    • I believe the Ezekiel 9 slaughter of apostate Adventists will begin on day 1290. This first death decree in force at that time, will give the government and haters of Adventists license to kill them. In some cases the death decree will be anticipated and government officials will turn their heads from such violations because they won't care! THIS IS THE FIRST DEATH DECREE.
    • It is at this time that God makes a taunt, an instruction to the world of JERUSALEM (Spiritual Jerusalem) SDA's, Ezekiel Chapter 5, as to what happens to a chosen people who reject Him for apostasy, just as He did the Jews in A.D. 70. Ezekiel 9 slaughter of Adventists will occur at this time--ALL EXCEPT THE 144,000.
    • I believe the slaughter will occur for 1335 days. All Adventists who are alive after that time period will KNOW that they are one of the 144,000.
    • I believe the probation closes at the end of the 1335, and that the plagues begin at that time.
    • I believe there will be at least a five month period of the 7 last plagues. These plagues will be blamed on God's faithful saints who still survive on the earth, and Satan will determine to rid the earth of them IN ONE NIGHT'S TIME, Great Controversy, p. 635. THIS IS THE SECOND DEATH DECREE. Jesus intervenes for the saints at that time. The weapons of their adversaries break. It is at this time that Jesus slays those who are about to kill His saints (144,000). It is also at this time that Jesus announces the day and hour of His coming.
    Sabbath blessings to you and yours,
     
    Ron
     
     
     

    The TWO WINGS that are given to the woman to feed and nourish her for 1260 days, 42 months, or 3.5 years:


     Those who help make up the 144,000 number are Adventists who live and give the 3 angels message and are joined at just the right time by the 4th angel and his message living in primitive Godliness following the Way, which is Jesus Christ, the Bridegroom that the 5 wise virgins go out to meet per Matthew 25:6. The LOUD CRY is in a great part, getting The Great Controversy and Patriarchs into the hands of the people. The Bride and Bridegroom call to the Ten Virgins to WAKE up and HELP give the LOUD CRY. According to the Ten Virgin Parable the group divides, 5 wise go out and follow the Bridegroom into the Sanctuary, into the Most Holy Place which is the MIND of GOD given to those who by FAITH claim the precious Bible promises given to us per 2 Peter 1:4, so we can enter by faith through one the 12 pearly gates into the City of God, the Protection of Christ and His Angels during the 7 last plagues. 

    The Most Holy Place has a covering that is the truth, the law, that Christ is drawing over His people to protect them when they by faith claim the 2 Pet 1:4 such as Jude 1:24, Zech 3:4, John 6:37, Isaiah 42:6, Isaiah 28:5, Isaiah 58:8, Isaiah 60:19, Isaiah 60:20, Isaiah 66:11, Malachi 4:2, Revelation 5:10, Revelation 1:6 and tons more verses!) With your Bible in your hands say, I have done as Thou hast said. I present Thy Promise, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."

    These Bible verse promises (1 Peter 1:4) are for the healing of sin (transgression of the Ten Commandments) from your mind, your thoughts, your feelings, your WORDS, your actions to be like Christ's character, the law of God (truth) in you. Christ says I am The WAY, The TRUTH and The LIFE, no one comes to the FATHER except THROUGH ME! When we claim these WORDS/SPIRIT/CHARACTER of CHRIST we enter INTO the CITY OF GOD or the Garden of Eden because we are using the flaming sword, the sword of the Spirit, Hebrews 4:12 "For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.".
