In the night season of March 15, 2018, I was taken in vision and given answers to questions I had previously posed to the Lord by way of deep supplication and prayer. The issues that I received an answer to had been lurking in the recesses of my mind for some time, but had been forced to the fore by the Holy Spirit in recent times. This vision involves the gravest issues besetting the professing Seventh-day Adventist church since that church formed a new movement, new organization, that removed God, and pillar doctrines. In fasting and persevering prayer, I asked the Lord for answers to the following questions, and He graciously gave me sufficient and all convincing answers for any sincere believer.

In part 1, I responded to questions 1-4. In this part 2, I will respond to the remainder of the questions. This is the link to Part 1:

http://omega77.tripod.com/myvisionwhyellenwhiteremainedpt1.htm

 

1.    In as much as Ellen White clearly stated that the SDA church was idolaters, and worse in the sight of God, than the heathen, graven-image worshippers (Catholics) who have no knowledge of a better way, why did she remain a member of such a church?

2.    In as much as Ellen White said that Adventists were imbibing the same disobedience and failure of the Jews, but to even a greater degree, why did she remain a member of the SDA church?

3.    In light of the fact that Ellen White called the church Laodicean as early as 1852, and said that the Laodicean state is the foolish virgins state of the church, why did she still remain with the church?

4.    What would the professing Seventh-day Adventist church have had to do in order that Ellen G. White would have been forced to resign as a member of that church?

5.    When does a professing church commit the unpardonable sin, so that sincere members must leave lest they be held corporately responsible for said sins?

6.    Why are SDA ministers and intra-church “reformers” saying that the church is not in apostasy? What constitutes apostasy of God’s church?

7.    What is the point at which true reformers should leave an apostate church lest they be corporately responsible for the apostasy?

8.    Why are apparent intra-church reformers like Doug Batchelor and Professor Walter Veith, advising God’s people to remain at the apostate church?

9.    Does Isaiah 37:31, 31 apply at the end-time spiritual Jerusalem church, the professing SDA church militant (wheat & tare co-ed church)?

10.   Do faithful followers leave apostate Adventism, as the faithful Jews left the apostate Jewish organization per Isaiah 37:31, 32, to form home churches?

11.   Who will lead out in the giving of the final Midnight Cry of Matthew 25? Does God need the formal SDA church to give the final Loud Cry?

12.   When will Ezekiel 9 be manifest upon professing Seventh-day Adventists?

QUESTION 5: When does a professing church commit the unpardonable sin so that sincere members must leave lest they be held corporately responsible for said sins?

·       A church that embraces ecumenism directly violates Isaiah 8:20 and the second angel’s message. A church that embraces and welcomes the LGBT movement, even installing some of them as leaders, is a direct violation of God’s Word, thus His commandments.

·       A church that changes our religion and has done away with the principles of the first 50 years of its existence.

·       A church that has removed pillar doctrines regarding the Sanctuary, Atonement, the human nature of Christ, and the Godhead. Even some leaders have admitted that the pioneers could not join the church as it is today, and Ellen White was one of those pioneers.

·       A new movement that has removed God and allows nothing to stand in its way.

·       A church that rejects all new light and denies any culpability concerning its gross abominations of apostasy for which we are to sigh and cry as a CONDITION to being sealed for salvation. Ezekiel 9.

·       A member of the SDA church, when baptized, must sign a compliance PLEDGE to the 28 Fundamental of Beliefs, and Ellen White, nor any MEMBER could do that without betraying our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, ON THE TRINITY DOCTRINE (GODHEAD) ALONE!

·       The alpha heresy was to sweep away the Sanctuary and Atonement. The omega has done exactly that by the adoption of the Trinity Doctrine if nothing else, but it did that in the mid-50’s, even before adopting the Trinity doctrine, by denying the truth on the human nature of Christ; that He came in our sinful flesh as Bible Readings for the Home, 1914 edition taught.

·       Ellen White prophesied in 5T 211, that the dumb-dog watchmen (Isa. 56:10-12 KJV) would NEVER AGAIN show the House of Jacob its sins, so how could they remove open sinners from the church EVER AGAIN?

·       Ellen White said the omega apostasy would wax stronger until Jesus comes. How could there be a primitive revival of the apostate church under that condition? And how could there be a primitive revival of the apostate church if it will NEVER AGAIN SHOW THE MEMBERS THEIR SINS? There will be a primitive revival that will gather the faithful from all churches in the next Midnight Loud Cry.

 

In Ellen White’s day the church merely played the harlot by flirting with the world, but from the mid-1950’s and on, the church began to do away with pillar doctrines on the Sanctuary, the Godhead, and the human nature of Christ. The church joined Babylon’s ASSOCIATIONS, COUNCILS/COUNSELS, GIRDINGS AND CONFEDERACIES in violation of Isaiah 8:9-16. That is why Ellen White did not leave. The church still had opportunity to repent.

 

COUNTERPART: "The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants, 'Pray not thou for this people [Jer. 7:16 and 11:9-15], neither lift up cry nor prayer for them neither make intercession to me for I will not hear thee.' The prophet thus describes the sins which had called forth this fearful denunciation: 'The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means and my people love to have it so and what will ye do in the end thereof?' 'From the least of them even unto the greatest of them, every one is given to covetousness and from the prophet even unto the priest, every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace.' The apostles declare that this state of things will find its COUNTERPART in the last days. Many have a form of godliness, but in their daily life deny the power thereof. They have ceased to be convicted of their sins or alarmed at their state. They say in their hearts, 'The church is flourishing. Peace and spiritual prosperity are within her borders.' The words of the prophet may well apply to these self-deceivers, 'They have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them." E. G. White, Second Advent Review and Sabbath Herald,  11-07-82.

 

The Sins Jeremiah Described That are Unpardonable

 

Jer 11:1  The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 

Jer 11:2   Hear ye the words of this covenant, and speak unto the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem; 

Jer 11:3   And say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant, 

Jer 11:4   Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God: 

Jer 11:5   That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O LORD. 

Jer 11:6  Then the LORD said unto me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear ye the words of this covenant, and do them. 

Jer 11:7   For I earnestly protested unto your fathers in the day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even unto this day, rising early and protesting, saying, Obey my voice. 

Jer 11:8   Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do; but they did them not. 

Jer 11:9  And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 

Jer 11:10   They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. 

Jer 11:11  Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. 

Jer 11:12   Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble. 

Jer 11:13   For according to the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal. 

Jer 11:14  Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble. 

Jer 11:15   What hath my beloved [BRIDE] to do in mine house, seeing she hath wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from thee? when thou doest evil, then thou rejoicest. 

Jer 11:16   The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken. 

Jer 11:17  For the LORD of hosts, that planted thee, hath pronounced evil against thee, for the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke me to anger in offering incense unto Baal. 

Jer 11:18  And the LORD hath given me knowledge of it, and I know it: then thou shewedst me their doings. 

Jer 11:19   But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered. 

Jer 11:20   But, O LORD of hosts, that judgest righteously, that triest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I revealed my cause. 

Jer 11:21  Therefore thus saith the LORD of the men of Anathoth, that seek thy life, saying, Prophesy not in the name of the LORD, that thou die not by our hand: 

Jer 11:22   Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine: 

Jer 11:23   And there shall be no remnant of them: for I will bring evil upon the men of Anathoth, even the year of their visitation.

 

Observations:

 

·       In verse 9, the men of Judah formed a conspiracy to turn back to the iniquities of their forefathers. They went after other gods to serve them. They secretly conspired with the WCC to join its ASSOCIATIONS (MINISTERIAL ASSOCIATIONS) AND NATIONAL COUNCILS, WHICH AUTOMATICALLY MADE THEM MEMBERS OF THE WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES, WHICH THEY STILL CONSPIRE TO LIE ABOUT. In my own locality, a number of Adventist ministers have been elected and served as PRESIDENT of the local Ministerial ASSOCIATION, in stark violation of Isaiah 8:9-12.

·       In the mid 1950’s, the leaders of new movement Adventism conspired to confederate with Babylon (Baal), other gods to serve them.

·       The leaders denied that Christ took the sinful nature of Adam, so as to excuse their evil. They claimed that Christ had something we don’t have that enabled Him to overcome sin. That was their purpose in going after the gods (Baal doctrines) of Babylon.

·       In 1980, SDA leaders adopted Babylon’s Trinity god, which teaches that there are three co-ETERNAL persons to the Godhead, when there are only two of the three that are ETERNAL, THE FATHER AND THE PRE-INCARNATED SON. The humanity of Christ was adopted into the Godhead, but is not ETERNAL. There was nothing about the Godhead that was human before the Incarnation.

·       By the teaching that there are three CO-ETERNAL PERSONS, that obfuscates the Incarnation sacrifice, whereby a THIRD PERSON was adopted into the Godhead, namely the humanity of Christ.

·       To teach that there are three co-ETERNAL persons, is tantamount to denying the Incarnation sacrifice, which produced a third person to the Godhead. Thus, the Sanctuary is rendered as GONE, The Atonement is rendered as GONE. This is the same sweeping away of the entire Christian economy that occurred in the Alpha heresy, to wit:

 

Sanctuary Gone Atonement Gone -- "In a representation which passed before me, I saw a certain work being done by medical missionary workers. Our ministering brethren were looking on, watching what was being done, but they did not seem to understand. The foundation of our faith, which was established by so much prayer, such earnest searching of the Scriptures, was being taken down, pillar by pillar. Our faith was to have nothing to rest upon--the sanctuary was gone, the atonement was gone." E.G. White, The Upward Look, 152.

 

As in the Alpha, so in the Omega.

 

"A new order of things has COME INTO the ministry. There is a desire to pattern after other churches and simplicity and humility are almost unknown. The young ministers seek to be original, and to introduce new ideas and new plans for labor. Some open revival meetings, and by this means call large numbers into the church. But when the excitement is over, where are the converted ones? Repentance and confession of sin are not seen. The sinner is entreated to believe in Christ and accept Him, without regard to his past life of sin and rebellion. The heart is not broken. There is no contrition of soul. The supposed converted ones have not fallen upon the Rock, Christ Jesus." E.G. White, Selected Messages, vol. 2, pp. 18, 19.

 

The Stages of Adventists Becoming a Harlot in the Synagogue of Satan

 

·       The first stage of harlotry is flirting.

·       Then comes courting of the enemy.

·       Then comes engagement.

·       Then comes the marriage into Satan’s Synagogue.

·       It is at the marriage stage that God is removed, so faithful members must remove, just as our example Christ and His followers did, and all true reformers have done IN EVERY SUCCEDING GENERATION.

 

QUESTION 6: Why are SDA ministers and intra-church “reformers” saying that the church is not in apostasy? What constitutes apostasy of God’s church WHEN OUR VERY SEALING IS CONDITIONAL UPON SIGHING AND CRYING FOR ALL THE ABOMINATIONS?

 

ANSWERS: I don’t know of ONE leader in the church who admits that the church is in apostasy.  In the latter 90’s, when Hartland Institute and Hope International Ministry accused the church of being in apostasy, the church came down on them heavily in a published book entitled: ISSUES: Seventh-day Adventists and Certain Private Ministries. I have a copy of that book, and it told all independent ministries that if they continued to say that the church is in apostasy that they would be disfranchised as members of the church. Thus, YOU CAN KNOW, that any intra-church ministry is not telling the truth about the church being in apostasy.

 

How can such leaders teach corporate responsibility for the abominable apostasy when they won’t even admit that the church is in apostacy? Thus, the leaders will be the first subjects of Ezekiel 9 destruction. They don’t qualify for the seal of God. Ezekiel 9.

 

QUESTION 7: What is the point at which true reformers should leave an apostate church lest they be corporately responsible for the apostasy?

 

ANSWER: Ellen White makes the answer to this question very straight forward and simple. She says on page 232 of Desire of Ages, that true reformers in EVERY SUCCEEDING GENERATION have left the church of their fathers for ONE STATED REASON: The ecclesiastical leaders would not accept light. Light was to ever be unfolding said Ellen White. She said we need more reformers like the ones she was describing. How could she qualify as a true reformer and not do likewise? You tell me. The burden is upon you and your conscience.

 

QUESTION 8: Why do Men Like Doug Batchelor and Walter Veith Instruct to Remain a Member of the Apostate Church No Matter What it Does?

 

ANSWERS:

 

I was shown that there are four prime reasons why SDA leaders and small letter intra-church “reformers” instruct the members to remain at the church no matter what.

 

1.    The prime reason men as intelligent as Batchelor and Veith say to remain at the church no matter what it does, is found in Isaiah 56:10-12 KJV, and Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 211. They believe God is too merciful to visit His people in Judgment. They are ignorant of what He did to His first chosen people in A.D. 70. They are ignorant of, and/or disbelieve Ellen White’s statement that Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled again BEGINNING AT THE CHURCH. They attribute to the church militant that which God has reserved for Zion, the bride, the church triumphant.

2.    Oft times, leaders do not learn the truth until they have invested their entire life in the church—what with all the education expense etc., and because of the perks proffered by the church, they teach for hire. That is what the Word of God Almighty says, to wit: Mic 3:11 “The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.”

3.    A number of leaders, like the Pharisees and the Scribes, covet power and position, the chief seats.

4.    Many leaders delight in their abominations. They are false prophets. They have misinterpreted Ellen White’s statements concerning the church. They never mention corporate responsibility and Ezekiel 9 destruction. They misapply the types and antitypes. For example, Walter Veith applies the preterist type of Israel being delivered from the desert, to the SDA church going through. He seems totally oblivious to the PREFIGURE of the Jews from Christ’s day to A.D. 70, as a TYPE of the last great day, BEGINNING AT GOD’S CHURCH, HIS SANCTUARY, APOSTATE SPIRITUAL JERUSALEM. He, like all other SDA leaders, misapprehends the Bible truth that the bad are gathered into the midsts of Jerusalem for burning and melting. Ezekiel 22:17-31. They believe that the bad are shaken out of the church militant, when God and Ellen White say the bad are shaken out of Zion (the bride) Isaiah 62 by the shaking message given by the THIRD ANGEL FAITHFUL MEN who select the wheat from the tares, says Ellen White and the Bible, when Jesus told the disciples that whomever they bound (sealed) on earth, would be (bound) sealed in heaven. Ellen White says that the THIRD ANGEL, faithful men, select the wheat from the tares. Ellen White also agrees with Ezekiel 22:17-31, in saying that the world and the church are the field. The tares are burned in the field. (See quote further down).

5.    Because of their unbelief (5T 211), they think the Lord does not see their church (city) full of perverseness:

 

Eze 8:12 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth.

Eze 9:9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not.

 

COUNTERPART: "The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants, 'Pray not thou for this people [Jer. 7:16 and 11:9-15], neither lift up cry nor prayer for them neither make intercession to me for I will not hear thee.' The prophet thus describes the sins which had called forth this fearful denunciation: 'The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means and my people love to have it so and what will ye do in the end thereof?' 'From the least of them even unto the greatest of them, every one is given to covetousness and from the prophet even unto the priest, every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace.' The apostles declare that this state of things will find its COUNTERPART in the last days. Many have a form of godliness, but in their daily life deny the power thereof. They have ceased to be convicted of their sins or alarmed at their state. They say in their hearts, 'The church is flourishing. Peace and spiritual prosperity are within her borders.' The words of the prophet may well apply to these self-deceivers, 'They have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them." E. G. White, Second Advent Review and Sabbath Herald,  11-07-82.

 

The Church as the Field Where the Tares are Burned

 

How many SDA leaders know that the church is the field where the tares are burned. How many of them know that is exactly what happened in A.D. 70, per Ezekiel 22:17-31, which is an elaboration on Ezekiel 9? Notice:

 

"The 'field,' Christ said, 'is the world.' But we must understand this as signifying the church of Christ in the world. The parable is a description of that which pertains to the kingdom of God, His work of salvation of men and this work is accomplished through the church. True, the Holy Spirit has gone out into all the world everywhere it is moving upon the hearts of men but it is in the church that we are to grow and ripen for the garner of God." Christ's Object Lessons, p. 70.

 

A true church militant should be a place where the wheat can grow and ripen. In an open sin apostate church militant, the wheat cannot mature and ripen, for it is choked and killed by the thorns (open sinners in the camp). That means Ellen White could not grow, and ripen for the garner of God, in an apostate church. She could not have united with the corrupt new movement and remained or become pure, to wit:

 

"It is IMPOSSIBLE for you to unite with those who are corrupt, and still remain pure. (II Corinthians 6:14-15 quoted). God and Christ and the heavenly host would have men know that if he unites with the corrupt he will become corrupt." E. G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 4, p. 137.  

 

"Thorns sprung up.—The thorns made it impossible for the wheat to mature (see Luke 8:14). In the same way secular interests prevent the fruits of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22, 23) from reaching maturity. Religion is relegated to the subordinate position of being only one interest among many. For lack of cultivation it withers and eventually dies. That which the thorny-ground hearers lack is a moral transformation [E.G. White, Christ's Object Lessons,  p. 50]  To them, justification is the sum and substance of religion, and they fail to realize that the Christian life consists essentially in the process known as sanctification--the process by which evil traits and tendencies are replaced by the perfect life-pattern of Jesus Christ." Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary, vol. 5, 405.

 

This (above) is precisely what much of New Movement Seventh-day Adventists (Selected Messages, vol. 1, 204-205), teach, that grace is justification to be saved in sin rather than from sin. The new movement does not teach that grace (power of the Holy Spirit) is given for obedience. Romans 1:5.

 

“The Lord will not write as wise those who cannot distinguish between a tree that bears thorn-berries and a tree that bears olives.” {EGW, RH, September 7, 1897 par. 15}

 

QUESTION 9:  Does Isaiah 37:31, 31 apply at the end-time spiritual Jerusalem church, the professing SDA church militant (wheat & tare co-ed church)?

 

ANSWERS: I asked the Lord this question, and the Angel of the Lord responded in the affirmative. I knew that answer from Ellen White, because of the following:

 

·       She said that each of the ancient prophets wrote more for us than the Jews.

·       She said that the Ezekiel 9 destruction of Jerusalem was a PREFIGURE, p. 25 GC. The faithful left in the type and went to Pella in A.D. 55, 3 ˝ years before Titus destroyed Jerusalem, and men, maidens and little children. So like TYPE, LIKE ANTITYPE.

 

QUESTION 10:  Do faithful followers leave apostate Adventism, as the faithful Jews left the apostate Jewish organization per Isaiah 37:31, 32, to form home churches?

 

ANSWERS: The first part of the question has been quite thoroughly answered. The answer to the second part regarding home churches is that as they did in the TYPE, so we must do in the antitype.

 

QUESTION 11: Who will lead out in the giving of the final Midnight Cry of Matthew 25? Does God need the formal SDA church to give the final Loud Cry?

 

ANSWER: The voice of God AND THE VOICE OF THE BRIDE (the 144,000) awaken ALL TEN VIRGINS, for Matthew 25 says all those virgins slept. It is the 144,000, the church triumphant, that gives the FINAL MIDNIGHT CRY.

 

"To Meet the Bridegroom"

 

[This chapter is based on Matt. 25:1-13.]

 

“Christ with His disciples is seated upon the Mount of Olives. The sun has set behind the mountains, and the heavens are curtained with the shades of evening. In full view is a dwelling house lighted up brilliantly as if for some festive scene. The light streams from the openings, and an expectant company wait around, indicating that a marriage procession is soon to appear. In many parts of the East, wedding festivities are held in the evening. The bridegroom goes forth to meet his bride and bring her to his home. By torchlight the bridal party proceed from her father's house to his own, where a feast is provided for the invited guests. In the scene upon which Christ looks, a company are awaiting the appearance of the bridal party, intending to join the procession.

 

Lingering near the bride's house are ten young women robed in white. Each carries a lighted lamp and a small flagon for oil. All are anxiously watching for the appearance

 

Page 406

of the bridegroom. But there is a delay. Hour after hour passes; the watchers become weary and fall asleep. At midnight the cry is heard, "Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him." The sleepers, suddenly awaking, spring to their feet. They see the procession moving on, bright with torches and glad with music. They hear the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride. The ten maidens seize their lamps and begin to trim them, in haste to go forth. But five have neglected to fill their flasks with oil. They did not anticipate so long a delay, and they have not prepared for the emergency. In distress they appeal to their wiser companions saying, "Give us of your oil; for our lamps are going out." (Margin.) But the waiting five, with their freshly trimmed lamps, have emptied their flagons. They have no oil to spare, and they answer, "Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves."

While they went to buy, the procession moved on, and left them behind. The five with lighted lamps joined the throng and entered the house with the bridal train, and the door was shut. When the foolish virgins reached the banqueting hall, they received an unexpected denial. The master of the feast declared, "I know you not." They were left standing without, in the empty street, in the blackness of the night.

 

As Christ sat looking upon the party that waited for the bridegroom, He told His disciples the story of the ten virgins, by their experience illustrating the experience of the church that shall live just before His second coming.

 

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. By the lamps is represented the word of God. The psalmist says, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto may path." Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 405-406.

 

Just as Jesus “gathered out” of the apostate Jewish church His bride (DA 179) who would give the gospel to the then known world, so He is now gathering out those who will give the final Loud Cry call to the world.

 

Some very misguided persons believe that the apostate corporate church must be purged and purified in order for it to give the Loud Cry. Strangely, those same individuals have left the church, and they can’t understand that in the A.D. 70 fulfillment of Ezekiel 9, the dross was gathered into the midsts of the apostate church and Jerusalem for slaughter, burning and melting—Ezekiel 22:17-31. They can’t understand that what occurred in the first literal manifestation of Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled again, just as Ellen White says.

 

The bad are gathered into the apostate church, while sinners are shaken out of Zion, the bride, the church triumphant, Isaiah 62:1-5, and Zion gives the Loud Cry message, just as the disciples gave it in the TYPICAL LITERAL FULFILLMENT OF EZEKIEL 9. All the faithful left the apostate church and were spared. Isaiah 37:31, 32 applied in that TYPE, and it will equally apply in the literal ANTITYPICAL FULFILLMENT OF EZEKIEL CHAPTERS 9 AND 22.

 

In A.D. 66, 3 ˝ years before the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple, a faithful remnant escaped to Pella and was spared. But it should also be well noted that Jesus began to “gather out” those who would take the gospel to the world as the first work of His ministry in A.D. 27.

 

Isa 37:31   And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward: 

Isa 37:32   For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this. 

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

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

The people of Galilee were despised by the rabbis of Jerusalem as rude and unlearned, yet they presented a more favorable field for the Saviour's work. They were more earnest and sincere; less under the control of bigotry; their minds were more open for the reception of truth. In going to Galilee, Jesus was not seeking seclusion or isolation. The province was at this time the home of a crowded population, with a much larger admixture of people of other nations than was found in Judea” Desire of Ages, p. 232.

Jesus’ Cleansing of the Temple

Adventists have never understood why the Temple was destroyed in A.D. 70, after Jesus had cleansed it twice. The reason Jesus destroyed the Temple was because the corruption He mentioned as His cleansing, continued immediately after His departure. The Jews did not obey His instruction at both cleansings. The apostasy continued, and so it will at the SDA apostate church, because Ellen White said that the omega would wax stronger until Jesus comes and that nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the New Movement that “removed God.”

Adventists believe Christ will cleanse their church. They are right! Their church is going to be cleansed in the very same manner and for the same reasons Jesus “cleansed” the apostate Temple of the Jews, to wit:

Wax stronger "One thing it is certain is soon to be realized, the great apostasy, which is developing and increasing and waxing stronger, and will continue to do so until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout. We are to hold fast the first principles of our denominated faith, and go forward from strength to increased faith. Ever we are to keep the faith that has been substantiated by the Holy Spirit of God from the earlier events of our experience until the present time. We need now larger breadth, and deeper, more earnest, unwavering faith in the leadings of the Holy Spirit. If we needed the manifest proof of the Holy Spirit's power to confirm truth in the beginning, after the passing of the time, we need to-day all the evidence in the confirmation of the truth, when souls are departing from the faith and giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. There must not be any languishing of soul now." (E.G. White, Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, p. 57).

"The enemy will set everything in operation to uproot the confidence of the believers in the pillars of our faith in the messages of the past, which have placed us upon the elevated platform of eternal truth, and which have established and given character to the work. The Lord God of Israel has led out His people, unfolding to them truth of heavenly origin." "The truth for this time is precious, but those whose hearts have not been broken by falling on the Rock Christ Jesus, will not see and understand what is truth. They will accept that which pleases their ideas, and will begin to manufacture another foundation than that which is laid. They will flatter their own vanity and esteem, thinking that they are capable of removing the pillars of our faith, and replacing them with pillars they have devised. This will continue to be as long as time shall last." Notebook, Leaflets, pp. 61-62.

 

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

Who has authority to begin such a [NEW] movement? We have our Bibles, we have our experience, attested to by the miraculous working of the Holy Spirit. We have a truth that admits of no compromise. Shall we not repudiate everything that is not in harmony with this truth? E.G. White, Selected Messages,  Bk. 1, 204, 205.

The disciples formed home churches:

Scripture on Home Churches

 

Act 16:32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

Act 16:34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

Act 16:40 And they went out of the prison, and entered into [the house of] Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.

Act 18:7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain [man's] house, named Justus, [one] that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.

Rom 16:5 Likewise [greet] the church that is in their house. Salute my well beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.

1Cr 1:11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them [which are of the house] of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

1Cr 16:15 I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and [that] they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)

1Cr 16:19 The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.

 

Ellen White on Home Churches

 

When the young men and women were kept away from the Alpha of apostasy in the church, what did they do and where did they meet for worship?

 

Ellen White on Home Churches in the Alpha of Apostasy:

 

"There is a little hope in one direction: Take the young men and women, and place them where they will come as little in contact with our churches as possible, that the low grade of piety which is current in this day shall not leaven their ideas of what it means to be a Christian." E.G. White, Manuscript Release #995, p. 5.

 

"Brother and sister Haskell have rented a house in one of the best parts of the city, and have gathered round them a family of helpers, who day by day go out giving Bible readings, selling our papers, and doing medical missionary work. During the hour of worship, the workers relate their experiences. Bible studies are regularly conducted in the home, and THE YOUNG MEN AND YOUNG WOMEN connected with the mission receive a practical, thorough training in holding Bible readings and in selling our publications. The Lord has blessed their labors, a number have embraced the truth, and many others are deeply interested." Review and Herald, September 7, 1905, Evangelism, p. 108.

 

"Christ was a protestant...The Reformers date back to Christ and the apostles. They came out and separated themselves from a religion of forms and ceremonies. Luther and his followers did not invent the reformed religion. They simply accepted it as presented by Christ and the apostles." E.G. White, Review and Herald, vol. 2, 48, col. 2.

 

Paul Left

 

"And as they persisted in their rejection of the gospel the apostle (Paul) went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God. But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus." Acts, 19:8, 9.

 

"Fearing that the faith of the believers would be endangered by continued association with these opposers of the truth, Paul separated from them, and gathered the disciples into a distinct body." E.G. White, Acts of the Apostles, p. 286.

 

"Even though you may not be able to speak a word to those who are working on wrong principles, leave them. may do more than words. Nehemiah refused to associate with those who were untrue to principle, and he would not permit his workmen to associate with them. The love and fear of God were his safeguard. Dare to be a Daniel, Dare to stand alone. Thus as did Moses, you will endure the seeing of Him who is invisible. But a cowardly and silent reserve before evil associates, while you listen to their devices makes you one with them Come out from among them and be separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." Review & Herald Vol. 4, p. 42.

“The Lord Jesus will always have a chosen people to serve Him. When the Jewish people rejected Christ, the Prince of life. He took from them the kingdom of God and gave it unto the Gentiles. God will continue to work on this principle with every branch of His work. When a church proves unfaithful to the work of the Lord, whatever their position may be, however high and sacred their calling, the Lord can no longer work with them. Others are then chosen to bear important responsibilities. But, if these in turn do not purify their lives from every wrong action, if they do not establish pure and holy principles in all their borders, then the Lord will grievously afflict and humble them and, unless they repent, will remove them from their place and make them a reproach.

God is not 'worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing' (Acts 17:25).” E. G. White, The Upward Look, 131.

 

The Jews felt that God needed them no matter what they did. Adventists feel the same way. They operate from the foolish-virgin premise that since they are the final church of the seven (chronologically), God is stuck with them! Not so! Ellen White said that all the churches are Laodicean and that the Laodicean state of the church is the foolish virgin state. She said that all the messages (plural) apply to the end of time. When we come into a proper relationship with Christ, we fall into the category of one of the other churches that Christ approved of.

 

A Firmament of Choses Ones in Every Corner of the World

 

Now hidden (5T 81), and in every corner of the world, God has a firmament of “chosen ones” who have not bowed the knee to Baal. These are they who will aid the 144,000 in giving the final Midnight Loud Cry to the world, to wit:

 

"In every nation whosoever believes with all his heart in the Lord Jesus is accepted of God. Here, truly, s the church, out[side] of which no one can be saved." The Great Controversy,  p. 181.

 

A Firmament of Chosen Ones Who Have Never Heard the Name Seventh-day Adventist.--"Among earth's inhabitants, scattered in every land, there are those who have not bowed the knee to Baal. Like the stars of heaven, which appear only at night, these faithful ones will shine forth when darkness covers the earth and gross darkness the people. 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.' The darker the night, the more brilliantly will they shine." E.G. White, Evangelism, 706, 707, and Prophets and Kings, pp. 188, 189.

 

The same author of Ezekiel 9, says in Ezekiel 22:24, that the church IS NOT CLEANSED, NOR RAINED UPON (NO OUTPOURING OF THE LATTER RAIN) in the day of indignation.

 

There will be a primitive revival of sincere individuals IN ALL FALLEN CHURCHES, but none of those churches will corporately receive the outpouring of the latter rain holy spirit, NOT EVEN THE PROFESSING SDA CHURCH, which was supposed to be spiritual Jerusalem. Rather, the dross will be gathered into the midst’s of Jerusalem (the professing church) for slaughter, burning and melting. So any time you hear a professing SDA mention the cleansing of the new movement church so it can give the gospel to the world, you should KNOW that this will never happen, and that such persons, like the two false charters, do not know what they are talking about. The reason I often refer to the false charters of end-time events, is because God showed me more than 10 years ago that they are a proto-type of those who reject the shaking message, and this applies to some members of my own family as well. Some of you have experienced this same type of betrayal. If you haven’t experienced this type of pure evil trauma yet, brace yourself, because God has shown me this is going to happen in every family:

 

Luk 21:16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

 

Eze 22:24   Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. 

Eze 22:25   There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. 

Eze 22:26   Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. 

Eze 22:27   Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. 

Eze 22:28   And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken. 

Eze 22:29   The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully. 

Eze 22:30   And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. 

Eze 22:31   Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

 

Now you know who gives the final message to the world, and IT IS NOT THE SDA ONCE CHURCH.

 

QUESTION 12: When will Ezekiel 9 be manifest upon professing Seventh-day Adventists?

 

In the PREFIGYRE TYPE of Israel, A.D. 27-70, the only ones who fled were the faithful. All of the bad (dross) were gathered into the midsts of Jerusalem for destruction. That is exactly what occurred in the TYPICAL and LITERAL fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 the first time it was fulfilled, and that is exactly what will occur in the next fulfillment because Ellen White said it will be LITERAL, AND WILL BEGIN AT HIS CHURCH, HIS SANCTUARY.

 

Eze 22:17  And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 

Eze 22:18   Son of man, the house of Israel is to me become dross: all they are brass, and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of the furnace; they are even the dross of silver. 

Eze 22:19   Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem. 

Eze 22:20   As they gather silver, and brass, and iron, and lead, and tin, into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it, to melt it; so will I gather you in mine anger and in my fury, and I will leave you there, and melt you. 

Eze 22:21   Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof. 

Eze 22:22   As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that I the LORD have poured out my fury upon you. 

Eze 22:23  And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 

Eze 22:24   Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. 

Eze 22:25   There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. 

Eze 22:26   Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. 

Eze 22:27   Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. 

Eze 22:28   And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken. 

Eze 22:29   The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully. 

Eze 22:30   And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. 

Eze 22:31   Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

 

In some SDA small “r” reformer circles, the false teaching that Ezekiel 9 is the same as the Will Ross statement is being taught. In the Will Ross statement every SDA flees and only the good come back and take over the church to become the church triumphant. Is that what occurred in A.D. 27-30. Did every Jew flee and only the good return to comprise the faithful who took over the Temple church? Of course not, and for Ezekiel 9 to be literally fulfilled, that is exactly what would have to happen.

 

God’s Word says that a faithful remnant will GO OUT of the apostate SDA church, just as was the case from A.D. 27-66, after which all the faithful fled to Pella, and the bad gathered themselves into Jerusalem for destruction. I say A.D. 27, as the beginning, because that is when Jesus first gathered out those who would take the gospel to the world, His disciples, Desire of Ages, 232.

 

Ellen White said that each of the ancient prophets wrote more for us than the Jews. Remember that, and read the following words of God, as to what occurs at the end-time in order to literally fulfill the same thing that happened in the first literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9:

 

Isa 37:31   And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward: 

Isa 37:32   For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this

 

That is exactly what occurred in the TYPE. All the faithful left the apostate Temple at Jerusalem, and in A.D. 66, they all fled to Pella.

 

Ezekiel 9 and Ellen White both say that Ezekiel 9 begins at His Sanctuary, His church. But devious factions like the Shepherd’s Rod and the False charters of end-time events, who parrot the same view as the Rod on this issue, say that all flee—GOOD AND BAD, and the good return. That means all the bad disappear and are slaughtered somewhere else other than the Sanctuary, the Church.

 

Eze 9:6   Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house. 

 

According to the Will Ross statement, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to begin at the leaders who are at the house (church), because they all flee and are never seen again. They disappear! So if the Will Ross statement is true, Ellen White would contradict herself in the following statement which says that Ezekiel 9 will BEGIN at the church, the Lord’s sanctuary.

 

"Here we see that the church the Lord's sanctuary was the first to feel the stroke of the wrath of God. The ancient men, those to whom God had given great light and who had stood as guardians of the spiritual interests of the people, had betrayed their trust. They had taken the position that we need not look for miracles and the marked manifestation of God's power as in former days. Times have changed. These words strengthen their unbelief, and they say: The Lord will not do good, neither will He do evil. He is too merciful to visit His people in judgment. Thus "Peace and safety" is the cry from men who will never again lift up their voice like a trumpet to show God's people their transgressions and the house of Jacob their sins. These dumb dogs that would not bark are the ones who feel the just vengeance of an offended God. Men, maidens, and little children all perish together." E.G. White, Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 5, p. 211.

 

The Will Ross statement, were it the same event as Ezekiel 9, would also contradict the following statement wherein Ellen White said that Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled. In the literal A.D. 70 fulfillment it all began at the apostate Jewish Temple.

 

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

 

Ezekiel 9 would not be LITERALLY fulfilled if it were the same as the Will Ross statement, because in Ezekiel 9, it all begins at His Sanctuary, His church! That is where the slaughter takes place, whereas in the Will Ross statement, ALL FLEE, and the bad are never seen again.

 

Now for the Time Ezekiel 9 Occurs

 

In Daniel 12, we have three time prophecies, the 1260, the 1290 and the 1335 days. In Revelation 13:1-5, the antichrist (pope) will rule for 42 months or 3 ˝ years. Then when the saints have finished their testimony of the three angel’s messages, Satan comes out of the bottomless pit. Announces a 30 day warning that all who refuse the Mark by day 1290 will not be able to buy or sell and they will be killed if they refuse to take the Mark. The martyrs occur at this time as seed for fruit to all who have heard the three angel’s messages for 3 ˝ years. Those martyrs will provide inspiration to new converts to the truth to give their lives as well. The martyrdom will go on until day 1335. All who come to that time will be blessed by knowing that if they survive to that day, they will be one of the 144,000.

 

Scripture DOES NOT mention any other national/universal death decree! The Spirit of Prophecy DOES NOT mention any other national/universal death decree.

 

Also, in the type, there was a 3 ˝ year WARNING in the form of the abomination before the true Christians fled to Pella. If all flee at the National Sunday Law, that would be like all the Jews having fled at the arrival of Cestius Gallus with the Roman army in A.D. 66, at which time he left, and 3 ˝ years later, the Roman General Titus returned and destroyed the Temple and Jerusalem city proper.

 

According to the Will Ross statement, there would be no such 3 ˝ year warning.

 

Ellen White parallels that 3 ˝ year warning with the Sunday Law, at which time she instructs Adventists NOT TO ALL FLEE SOMEWHERE, but to move to smaller towns and villages preparatory to later moving to more secluded places [3 ˝ years later] as in the TYPE.

 

With the Will Ross/Ezekiel 9 people, Ellen White instruction in 5T 451 and 464 means nothing. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, a wind of persecution comes upon all people in ALL DENOMINATIONS, and they flee somewhere. Only the good of them return.

 

If all the bad laity and bad ministers are destroyed THEN, who are the ministers the people attack at the very end of the time of trouble, per Ellen White’s statements regarding such? She says they furiously attack the false ministers! If all the false ministers were killed 3 ˝ years earlier by some persecution event, how would they be around to be attacked by their patrons at the very end? These are just some of the foolish follies of equating Ezekiel 9 with the Will Ross statement.

 

These are all factors I was instructed in vision to give to God’s people. Do God’s people need this instructive TRUTH, so as to know what to do and when to do it? Yes indeed, and that is why He has given it for us.

 

In the name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
