The Anatomy of Corporate Responsibility and The Laodicean Church

&

The Three Most Important Truths For God’s People at the End-time

 “The evidence given one day, if rejected, may never be repeated.” {RH September 16, 1873, par. 22}

“The angel with the writer's ink horn is to place a mark upon the foreheads of all who are separated from sin and sinners, and the destroying angel follows this angel (Letter 12, 1886).” {4BC 1161.5}

“Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.” {1T 322.2}

 

1Sa 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

2Ch 33:6 And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

 

Gal 5:20, 21: Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

On January 1, 2019, I was given a most urgent vision from the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I was shown the three most important messages for God’s chosen people at this end-time and instructed that they should be often repeated because of their extreme importance, and because those who regard themselves as God’s “chosen people,” are totally ignorant of these messages, and that without these three requisites, His people cannot give the three angel’s messages.

I was shown the amazing truth that no church that violates any one of the following three truths, will qualify to participate in giving the three angel’s message to the world, nor have any part in being Zion, the bride of Christ. I will list the three violations and then elaborate on each of them:

1.    The first and most important issue is the truth on the Godhead, the most fundamental issue involving all Christendom. Any, I repeat, ANY error on this issue constitutes antichrist doctrine, and renders the SANCTUARY/ATONEMENT AS GONE, which will become quickly apparent.

2.    The second most important issue is corporate responsibility for open sin in the church which causes the Spirit of God to withdraw.

3.    The third most important issue is the typology of Jeremiah chapters 7 and 11, and the APOSTLES SAYING THAT THERE IS AN END-TIME COUNTERPART to those chapters which depict UNPARDONABLE SIN because God instructs Jeremiah NOT TO PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE ANY LONGER.

 

I was shown that it is impossible to SUCCESSFULLY give the three angel’s messages and speak of the character of God’s love, while in violation of ANY ONE of the above three all-important issues. Some are attempting to give the three angel’s messages without the truth on the above issues, but in so doing they only fulfill Matthew 23:15.

 

The Godhead:

·       God will not save those who persist in belief of an antichrist version of the Godhead. If such a people were to give the three angel’s messages, it would only serve the cause of Matthew 23:15. This is what occurred with the apostate Jews. They did evangelization after they had removed God from their organization. But God told them they would only cross land and sea to make a proselyte (convert), to make him/her twice the child of hell the apostate Jews were. This is what apostate Adventists are doing now, because they removed God and formed a new movement (1SM 204-205) in 1955, by teaching that Christ came in the sinLESS flesh of Adam BEFORE the fall. This implies that He made no Atonement by fully emptying Himself to become fully human at His Incarnation. Thus, this antichrist doctrine has the same effect as the Trinity Doctrine.

“Had he not been fully human, Christ could not have been our substitute. He could not have worked out in humanity that perfection of character which it is the privilege of all to reach. He was the light and the life of the world. He came to this earth to work in behalf of men, that they might no longer be under the control of Satanic agencies. But while bearing human nature, he was dependent upon the Omnipotent for his life. In his humanity, he laid hold of the divinity of God; and this every member of the human family has the privilege of doing. Christ did nothing that human nature may not do if it partakes of the divine nature. {ST June 17, 1897, par. 8}”

·       Christ’s PRE-INCARNATION DIVINE NATURE WAS FULLY DIVINE. His Human Nature was Fully human. His fully Divine Nature Holy Spirit (Comforter John 14) was divested from His fully human nature. Thus, He was two different independent persons.

·       "Cumbered with humanity Christ could not be in every place personally, therefore it was altogether for their advantage that He should leave them to go to His Father and send the Holy Spirit to be His successor on earth. The Holy Spirit is Himself divested of the personality of humanity and independent thereof. He would represent Himself as present in all places by His Holy Spirit.” E.G. White, (Manuscript Releases Volume 14 (No’s 1081-1135) MR No.1084.

·       The great error of the new movement (1SM 204-205) on the Godhead, is NOT that there are three persons, as a number of independent ministries errantly teach, but the error in the Trinity Doctrine that there are THREE CO-ETERNAL PERSONS to the Godhead.

That cannot be, because the THIRD PERSON to the Godhead was God come in the likeness of sinful flesh, and that DID NOT occur until the Incarnation.

In other words, there was no human aspect to the Godhead before the Incarnation, SO HOW COULD THE HUMANITY OF CHRIST BE CO-ETERNAL with the Father and the Son?

THE HUMANITY PERSON OF CHRIST WAS ADOPTED INTO THE GODHEAD OF HEAVEN:

 “In taking our nature, the Saviour has bound Himself to humanity by a tie that is never to be broken. Through the eternal ages He is linked with us. "God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son." He gave Him not only to bear our sins, and to die as our sacrifice; He gave Him to the fallen race. To assure us of His immutable counsel of peace, God gave His only-begotten Son to become one of the human family, forever to retain His human nature. This is the pledge that God will fulfill His word. "Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder." Isa. 9:6. God has adopted human nature in the person of His Son, and has carried the same into the highest heaven. . . . Heaven is enshrined in humanity, and humanity is enfolded in the bosom of Infinite Love.” {FLB 45.4}

“Christ bowed down in unparalleled humility, that in His exaltation to the throne of God, He might also exalt those who believe in Him, to a seat with Him upon His throne.” {FLB 45.5}

·       By teaching that there are three co-ETERNAL persons, the Sanctuary/Atonement is rendered MOOT AND VOID, because if the three persons are CO-ETERNAL, then there was no atonement, for it was the Sanctuary/Atonement, that produced a THIRD PERSON TO THE GODHEAD.

·       So the new movement teaching of the Godhead, and any version of the Trinity Doctrine teaches that the three persons are co-ETERNAL. Thus, they all obfuscate the Sanctuary/Atonement by which a THIRD PERSON accrued to the Godhead.

·       Ellen White taught that there are three persons to the Godhead. Any ministry that teaches that only the Father and the Son constitute the Godhead, leaves out the Sanctuary/Atonement which produced God come in the likeness of sinful flesh, and thus another person accrued and was adopted into the Godhead of heaven.

·       The Bible says that all who don’t believe that God came in the likeness of sinful flesh, are antichrist. There was no personage of God, come in the likeness of sinful flesh prior to the Incarnation, so how could the humanity of Christ be co-ETERNAL with the Divine Nature of Christ and the Father, which were co-ETERNAL?

·       The Trinity Doctrine which teaches that the three persons to the Godhead are CO-ETERNAL.

·       The 28 Fundamentals of Belief at the following link https://www.pillarsoffaithsdachurch.org/28-fundamental-beliefs/

state this: “The Trinity There is one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a unity of three coeternal Persons. God is immortal, all-powerful, all-knowing, above all, and ever present… (Gen. 1:26; Deut. 6:4; Isa. 6:8;Matt. 28:19; John 3:16 2 Cor. 1:21, 22; 13:14; Eph. 4:4-6; 1 Peter 1:2.)”

·       If all three persons are CO-ETERNAL, there was no Incarnation Atonement made by God coming in the likeness of sinful flesh, which produced the humanity of Christ. Before the Incarnation there were two persons: (The Father and the Son and their ONE SPIRIT—HOLY SPIRIT NATURE).

·       The Bible says that God is a Spirit: “Jhn 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

·       The Bible says that Jesus offered Himself up through THE ETERNAL SPIRIT: Heb 9:14 “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

·       The words THE ETERNAL SPIRIT mean ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT. The original co-eternal Father and Son are of the same ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT. That is all we know of the NATURE of God’s essence and substance. Ellen White says that SILENCE IS GOLDEN ON THE NATURE OF GOD, for that is all we KNOW about the NATURE OF GOD—THAT HE IS A SPIRIT AND ETERNAL. But we are given to know much more about the PERSONALITY OF GOD. For example: John 3:16. John 14, where THREE PERSONS ARE CLEARLY TAUGHT—Jesus the human part of God is speaking to Thomas, Phillip, and Judas (not Iscariot). He identifies Himself as the Comforter, the Holy Spirit. So His DIVINE NATURE is His Holy Spirit that is divested from and independent from His humanity per the following statement:

·       "Cumbered with humanity Christ could not be in every place personally, therefore it was altogether for their advantage that He should leave them to go to His Father and send the Holy Spirit to be His successor on earth. The Holy Spirit is Himself divested of the personality of humanity and independent thereof. He would represent Himself as present in all places by His Holy Spirit.” E.G. White, Manuscript Releases Volume 14 (No’s 1081-1135) MR No.1084.

·       John Chapter 14 confirms the above Spirit of Prophecy statement, and both confirm THREE PERSONS.

1.    The Father

2.    The Holy Spirit (The same as the Comforter (John 14). In verse 23, BOTH COME TO US.

3.    The humanity of Christ

·       Any denial of a THIRD PERSON, is a total denial of the Incarnation Atonement Sacrifice via God coming in the likeness of sinful flesh, which resulted in the human PERSON of Christ, which was adopted into the Godhead of heaven as a personage of the Godhead. Nothing could be any more antichrist than a denial of THREE PERSONS to the Godhead, AS CLEARLY TAUGHT IN JOHN CHAPTER 14, and by Ellen G. White.

·       There are three living persons of the heavenly trio; in the name of these three great powers --the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit--those who receive Christ by living faith are baptized, and these powers will co-operate with the obedient subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ.-- Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, pp. 62, 63. (1905) -Evangelism 615.1

·       Those who proclaim the third angel's message must put on the whole armor of God, that they may stand boldly at their post, in the face of detraction and falsehood, fighting the good fight of faith, resisting the enemy with the word, "It is written." Keep yourselves where the three great powers of heaven, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, can be your efficiency. These powers work with the one who gives himself unreservedly to God. The strength of heaven is at the command of God's believing ones. The man who takes God as his trust is barricaded by an impregnable wall.--The Southern Watchman, Feb. 23, 1904, p. 122.

·       Our sanctification is the work of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is the fulfillment of the covenant that God has made with those who bind themselves up with Him, to stand with Him, with His Son, and with His Spirit in holy fellowship. Have you been born again? Have you become a new being in Christ Jesus? Then co-operate with the three great powers of heaven who are working in your behalf. Doing this you will reveal to the world the principles of righteousness. -Signs of the Times, June 19, 1901 par. 4.

·       "Many claim that it was impossible for Christ to be overcome by temptation. Then He could have not been placed in Adam's position; He could not have gained the victory that Adam failed to gain. If we have any sense a more trying conflict than had Christ, then He would not be able to succor us. But our Saviour took humanity, with all its liablitiies. He took the nature of man, with the possibility of yielding to temptation. We have nothing to bear which He has not endured." -Ellen G. White, Desire of Ages p.95

·       Sister White also declares the following regarding the Holy Spirit...

The nature of the Holy Spirit is a mystery. Men cannot explain it, because the Lord has not revealed it to them. Men having fanciful views may bring together passages of Scripture and put a human construction on them, but the acceptance of these views will not strengthen the church. Regarding such mysteries, which are too deep for human understanding, silence is golden.” -Acts of the Apostles p 52

“The Holy Spirit has a personality, else He could not bear witness to our spirits and with our spirits that we are the children of God. He must also be a divine person, else He could not search out the secrets which lie hidden in the mind of God.” -Manuscript p 20- 1906

·       “In 1888 in the General Conference held at Minneapolis, Minn, the angel [Holy Spirit] of Revelation 18 came down to do His work, and was ridiculed, criticized and rejected. And when the message He brings again, swells into a loud cry, it will again be ridiculed, spoken against and be rejected by the majority.” -Ellen G. White in Taking up a Reproach. 1888.

·       It is to reject, despise or to minimize the Holy Spirit in such a way as will have a domino effect in destroying all of the truths that formed the foundation of Adventism. How? Why? Because “The Holy Ghost is the author of the Scriptures and of the Spirit of Prophecy" -Selected Messages Vol. 3 p 30.

·       GODHEAD: RESTITUTION MINISTRIES http://www.thethirdangelsmessage.com/Putting_The_Pieces_Together.php

·       The Godhead has Three Persons According to John 14 and Ellen G. White:

·       “The Godhead was stirred with pity for the race, and the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit gave themselves to the working out of the plan of redemption.”—Counsels on Health, 222. {7ABC 442.1}

·       “Christ determined to bestow a gift on those who had been with Him and on those who should believe on Him, because this was the occasion of His ascension and inauguration, a jubilee in heaven. What gift could Christ bestow rich enough to signalize and grace His ascension to the mediatorial throne? It must be worthy of His greatness and His royalty. Christ gave His representative, the third person of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit. This Gift could not be excelled....” {CTr 301.4}

·       "In Co-operation With the Three Highest Powers—We are to co-operate with the three highest powers in heaven,—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost,—and these powers will work through us, making us workers together with God."—Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, p. 51. (1905). {Ev 617.3}

·       “The Comforter that Christ promised to send after He ascended to heaven, is the Spirit in all the fullness of the Godhead, making manifest the power of divine grace to all who receive and believe in Christ as a personal Saviour. There are three living persons of the heavenly trio; in the name of these three great powers—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—those who receive Christ by living faith are baptized, and these powers will co-operate with the obedient subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ.”—Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, pp. 62, 63. (1905). {Ev 615.1}

·       "The Godhead was stirred with pity for the race, and the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit gave Themselves to the working out of the plan of redemption. In order fully to carry out this plan, it was decided that Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, should give Himself an offering for sin. What line can measure the depth of this love? God would make it impossible for man to say that He could have done more. With Christ He gave all the resources of heaven, that nothing might be wanting in the plan for man’s uplifting. Here is love—the contemplation of which should fill the soul with inexpressible gratitude! Oh, what love, what matchless love! The contemplation of this love will cleanse the soul from all selfishness. It will lead the disciple to deny self, take up the cross, and follow the Redeemer." {CH 222.2}

·       "Jesus sought to inspire His disciples with the joy and hope that inspired His own heart. He rejoiced because the Holy Spirit was the highest of all gifts He could solicit from His Father for His people. The Spirit was to be given as a regenerating agent, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail. The power of evil had been strengthening for centuries, and the submission of men to satanic captivity was amazing. Sin could be resisted and overcome only through the mighty agency of the Third Person of the Godhead, who would come in the fullness of divine power. The Spirit makes effectual what has been wrought out by the world’s Redeemer. By the Spirit the heart is made pure. Christ has given His Spirit to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil, and to impress His own character on His church. The very image of God is to be reproduced in humanity. The honor of God, the honor of Christ, is involved in the perfection of the character of His people." {HLv 450.3}

·       8 (John 15:26, 27). A Gift Unexcelled—“Christ determined that when He ascended from this earth, He would bestow a gift on those who had believed on Him, and those who should believe on Him. What gift could He bestow rich enough to signalize and grace His ascension to the mediatorial throne? It must be worthy of His greatness and His royalty. He determined to give His representative, the third person of the Godhead. This gift could not be excelled. He would give all gifts in one, and therefore the divine Spirit, that converting, enlightening, and sanctifying power, would be His donation....” {6BC 1052.5}

·       "The three powers of the Godhead have pledged their might to carry out the purpose that God had in mind when he gave to the world the unspeakable gift of his Son. Every act of self-denial, every earnest surrender to God, is an element in God’s design for the increase of the piety and zeal and earnest faith of his people. The Holy Spirit unites with the powers of grace that God has provided to turn souls to Christ. We are to labor as Christ labored for the salvation of dying souls. And as we work, our hearts are to be encouraged by the thought that every soul converted through our efforts will become another instrumentality in the work of recovering the lost. Guided by the same Spirit that led some one to work for him, he will take up the work and labor in the spirit of the Master." {RH July 18, 1907, par. 3}

·       The Godhead of The Father and the Son’s Holy Spirit, are of one and the same essence and substance.

·       Col 2:8  “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 

·       Col 2:9  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily (humanly). He came in the body of a human and the likeness of sinful flesh. 

·       Col 2:10   And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 

·        “The Jews had never before heard such words from human lips, and a convicting influence attended them; for it seemed that divinity flashed through humanity as Jesus said, “I and My Father are One.” The words of Christ were full of deep meaning as He put forth the claim that He and the Father were of one substance, possessing the same attributes.—The Signs of the Times, November 27, 1893, p. 54. {7ABC 437.3}

·       "In Christ Jesus is a revelation of the glory of the Godhead. All that the human agent can know of God to the saving of the soul, is the measure of the knowledge of the truth as it is in Jesus, to which he can attain; for Christ is He who represents the Father. The most wonderful truth to be grasped by men is the truth, “Immanuel, God with us.” Christ is the wisdom of God. He is the great “I Am” to the world. As we contemplate the glory of the divine character as revealed in Christ, we are led to exclaim, “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!” This wisdom is displayed in the love that reaches out for the recovery of lost and ruined man." {ST July 3, 1907, par. 5}

·       "But who that is not infinite can understand the infinite? Christ declares, “No man knoweth the Father but the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son shall reveal him.” It is recorded of Epictetus that when his hearers said to him, “You have uttered many excellent things of God; but we cannot as yet understand what he is,” he truly and nobly replied, “Were I able fully to set forth God, I should either be a god myself, or God himself would cease to be what he is.” The greatness of God cannot be measured or comprehended. And that doctrine that denies the absolute Godhead of Jesus Christ, denies also the Godhead of the Father; for no man knoweth the Son but the Father." {ST June 27, 1895, par. 3}

·       "Shall our faith ever falter again? What stronger evidence could God have given us that Jesus is the Son of God? What greater evidence could be given of the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ than that which has been given by those who were eyewitnesses of his Majesty? Will those who claim to believe in Christ as a personal Saviour, dishonor God by doubting that he to whose guardianship they have committed their souls will keep that which has been committed to his trust against that day? Jesus is a risen Saviour. He came forth from the grave to vindicate his previous claims, to confirm the faith of his followers, to establish the truth of his Godhead before men, to make doubly sure the assurance that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." {ST May 30, 1895, par. 8}

·       “Yet the Son of God was the acknowledged Sovereign of heaven, one in power and authority with the Father.”—The Great Controversy, 495. {7ABC 437.4}

·       “To save the transgressor of God’s law, Christ, the One equal with the Father, came to live heaven before men, that they might learn to know what it is to have heaven in the heart. He illustrated what man must be to be worthy of the precious boon of the life that measures with the life of God.”—Fundamentals of Christian Education, 179. {7ABC 437.5}

·       Two Natures Blended in Christ—“Through being partakers of the divine nature we may stand pure and holy and undefiled. The Godhead was not made human, and the human was not deified by the blending together of the two natures. Christ did not possess the same sinful, corrupt, fallen disloyalty we possess, for then he could not be a perfect offering.”—Manuscript 94, 1893. {3SM 131.1}

·       “Christ, the Word, the only begotten of God, was One with the eternal Father,—one in nature, in character, in purpose,—the only being that could enter into all the counsels and purposes of God. “His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6). His “goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting” (Micah 5:2).—Patriarchs and Prophets, 34. {7ABC 437.2}

·       "For centuries the Jews had vainly endeavored to show wherein the promise of God given by Haggai had been fulfilled; yet pride and unbelief blinded their minds to the true meaning of the prophet’s words. The second temple was not honored with the cloud of Jehovah’s glory, but with the living presence of One in whom dwelt the fullness of the Godhead bodily—who was God Himself manifest in the flesh. The “Desire of all nations” had indeed come to His temple when the Man of Nazareth taught and healed in the sacred courts. In the presence of Christ, and in this only, did the second temple exceed the first in glory. But Israel had put from her the proffered Gift of heaven. With the humble Teacher who had that day passed out from its golden gate, the glory had forever departed from the temple. Already were the Saviour’s words fulfilled: “Your house is left unto you desolate.” Matthew 23:38. {GC 24.2}

·       "Amazed at his dullness of comprehension, Christ asked with pained surprise, “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known Me, Philip?” Is it possible that you do not see the Father in the works He does through Me? Do you not believe that I came to testify of the Father? “How sayest thou then, Show us the Father?” “He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father.” Christ had not ceased to be God when He became man. Though He had humbled Himself to humanity, the Godhead was still His own. Christ alone could represent the Father to humanity, and this representation the disciples had been privileged to behold for over three years." {DA 663.5}

·       "In describing to His disciples the office work of the Holy Spirit, Jesus sought to inspire them with the joy and hope that inspired His own heart. He rejoiced because of the abundant help He had provided for His church. The Holy Spirit was the highest of all gifts that He could solicit from His Father for the exaltation of His people. The Spirit was to be given as a regenerating agent, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail. The power of evil had been strengthening for centuries, and the submission of men to this satanic captivity was amazing. Sin could be resisted and overcome only through the mighty agency of the Third Person of the Godhead, who would come with no modified energy, but in the fullness of divine power. It is the Spirit that makes effectual what has been wrought out by the world’s Redeemer. It is by the Spirit that the heart is made pure. Through the Spirit the believer becomes a partaker of the divine nature. Christ has given His Spirit as a divine power to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil, and to impress His own character upon His church." {DA 671.2}

·       "But although Christ’s divine glory was for a time veiled and eclipsed by His assuming humanity, yet He did not cease to be God when He became man. The human did not take the place of the divine, nor the divine of the human. This is the mystery of godliness. The two expressions human and divine were, in Christ, closely and inseparably one, and yet they had a distinct individuality. Though Christ humbled Himself to become man, the Godhead was still His own. His Deity could not be lost while He stood faithful and true to His loyalty. Surrounded with sorrow, suffering, and moral pollution, despised and rejected by the people to whom had been intrusted the oracles of heaven, Jesus could yet speak of Himself as the Son of man in heaven. He was ready to take once more His divine glory when His work on earth was done." {ST May 10, 1899, par. 11}

·       The Pre-existence of Christ as the Everlasting Father and the Alpha and Omega.

·       “Christ was God essentially, and in the highest sense. He was with God from all eternity, God over all, blessed forevermore.” {RH, April 5, 1906 par. 6}

·       “The Lord Jesus Christ, the divine Son of God, existed from eternity, a distinct person, yet one with the Father.” {RH, April 5, 1906 par. 7}

·       The Holy Spirit indicts all genuine prayer. I have learned to know that in all my intercessions, the Spirit intercedes for me and for all saints whose intercessions are according to the will of God, never contrary to His will. "The Spirit also helpeth our infirmities" [Rom. 8:26], and the Spirit being God, knoweth the mind of God; therefore in every prayer of ours for the sick, or for other needs, the will of God is to be regarded. "For what man knoweth the things of man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God" [2 Cor. 2:11]. If we are taught of God, we shall pray in conformity to His revealed will and in submission to His will which we know not. We are to make supplication according to the will of God, relying on the precious Word, and believing that Christ not only gave Himself for, but to, His disciples. The record declares, "He breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost" [John 20:22]. {2MR 36.2}

·       “The Lord Jesus Christ, the divine Son of God, existed from eternity, a distinct person, yet one with the Father.” {RH, April 5, 1906 par. 7}

·       The Pre-existent, Self-existent Son of God—Christ is the pre-existent, self-existent Son of God.... In speaking of his pre-existence, Christ carries the mind back through dateless ages. He assures us that there never was a time when He was not in close fellowship with the eternal God. He to whose voice the Jews were then listening had been with God as one brought up with Him.—The Signs of the Times, August 29, 1900. {Ev 615.2}

·       "Jesus Christ is revealed as the Fullness of the Godhead, the infinitely merciful Saviour of sinners, the Sun of Righteousness, the merciful High Priest, the Healer of all human maladies and diseases, the tender, compassionate Friend, the constant, ever-present and helpful Companion, the Prince of the House of David, the Shield of His people, the Prince of Peace, the Coming King, the Everlasting Father, the culmination and fruition of the desires and hopes of all the ages." {DA 17.7}

 

2.    The second most important issue is corporate responsibility for open sin in the church which causes the Spirit of God to withdraw. We have been studying the principle of corporate responsibility from the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy, in each part of this series. But the following additional factors were shown to me in this particular vision by way of emphasis:

 

·       How can one give the three angel’s message while being corporately responsible for turning back to the iniquity of our forefathers after hearing and accepting the messages of 1844?

·       How could one be a member of God’s church while being corporately responsible for the corruption of omega apostasy which causes the withdrawal of Christ’s presence? Would that not make Christ the HEAD of a CORRUPT BODY?

·       How can one give the three angel’s messages while being corporately responsible for being in violation of the second angel’s message via renewed liaison with fallen Babylon via ecumenical association, counsel/counsel, girding and/or confederacy/conspiracy to confederate with the errors of our forefathers?

·       How can one be a MEMBER of Christ’s church, while wilfully, knowingly robbing God of His portion of the sacred tithe? The Bible says that robbers will not be in heaven. Is retaining a part of your filthy lucre THAT BELONGS TO GOD, NOT YOU, worth the loss of eternal life?

·       1Cor 6:10 Nor thieves (robbers), nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

·       Some think tithe is no longer binding. That could not be further from the truth, for when Elijah comes, AT THE END-TIME, his instruction is: “Mal 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”

·       The opposite of a blessing is a curse. Sooner or later, the robbers of God will be cursed, even if it occurs at the loss of eternal life, 1Cor 6:10 (further up).

·       I was shown that those who pay the sacred tithe to ANY who are in violation of the three most important issues enumerated in this vision, are robbers, because they are not supporting the cause of pure truth in the land, but rather spurious and unpardonable sin error for which they are CORPORATELY RESPONSIBLE.

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

 

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

 

·       Achan’s sin brought disaster upon the whole nation. For one man’s sin the displeasure of God will rest upon His church till the transgression is searched out and put away. The influence most to be feared by the church is not that of open opposers, infidels, and blasphemers, but of inconsistent professors of Christ. These are the ones that keep back the blessing of the God of Israel and bring weakness upon His people.” {PP 497.2}

 

·       “When the church is in difficulty, when coldness and spiritual declension exist, giving occasion for the enemies of God to triumph, then, instead of folding their hands and lamenting their unhappy state, let its members inquire if there is not an Achan in the camp. With humiliation and searching of heart, let each seek to discover the hidden sins that shut out God’s presence.” {PP 497.3}

 

·       "When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity but thou hast delivered thy soul." Ezekiel 3:18-19.

 

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

 

·       In the church that is the real bride of Christ, “no soul can be made independent of the rest,” because Christ is the head and the bride is His body. Thus there is corporate responsibility in the true church, amongst the true body of Christ. 

 

·       “It is of the highest importance that the youth understand that Christ’s people are to be united in one; for this unity binds men to God by the golden cords of love, and lays each one under obligation to work for his fellow men. The Captain of our salvation died for the human race that men might be made one with Him and with each other. As members of the human family we are individual parts of one mighty whole. No soul can be made independent of the rest. There is to be no party strife in the family of God; for the well-being of each is the happiness of the whole. No partition walls are to be built up between man and man. Christ as the great center must unite all in one. {FE 479.1}

·       Corporate Responsibility in Acts 2:36

 

·       36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

·       37 Now when they heard this , they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

·       38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

·       39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

·       40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

·       41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

·       42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

·       43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

·       44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

·       45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men , as every man had need.

·       46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

·       47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. Acts 2:36-47. 

·       "The Lord gave Joshua to understand that the sin of even one man would bring the divine wrath upon the whole congregation.

·       There was work for both magistrate and people, to keep the camp free from iniquity. They must have vigilant care, not only for themselves, but for one another, lest sin should prevail, and the Lord's name be dishonored. God's character changes not." ST 12/8/81

·       Gratification of appetite and unlawful passion.

·       "Except in his neglect to restrain and control his sons, Eli had faithfully performed the duties of his office. But his failure to maintain the honor of God by repressing sin with an impartial hand, gave rise to a long train of evils, bringing crime and anguish upon a whole nation. In the history of Eli and his sons is a solemn warning for all the ministers of Christ—an admonition to guard their own hearts with diligence, to keep holy all God's requirements, that his blessing may rest upon the workmen, and that the work may bear the signet of Heaven. It should also impress upon them their duty to rebuke sin in the members of the church, be they high or low, rich or poor. Even our dearest friends are not to come between us and our allegiance to God. We need not expect to receive the divine blessing until all that has been left for man to do is done to correct error and repress sin. To neglect this duty, or to be slothful and careless in its performance, is to disobey God, to sanction sin, and to bring his wrath upon his people.

·       “The example of ministers should be such as to impress the people with reverence for God, and with fear to offend him. They should honor the Lord at all times, ever acknowledging that of themselves they can do nothing, that their strength and wisdom must come from God, and that all the glory belongs to him. Those who occupy responsible positions, where if connected with God they might do much good, yet who abuse these privileges by the gratification of appetite or unlawful passion, will be visited with the wrath of God according to the gifts which they have perverted." ST 12/8/18

·       "The Captain of our salvation died for the human race that men might be made one with Him and with each other. As members of the human family we are individual parts of one mighty whole.

·       "In this last conflict the Captain of the Lord's host [Joshua 5:15] is leading on the armies of heaven and mingling in the ranks and fighting our battles for us. We shall have apostasies, we expect them. "They will go out from us because they were not of us" (see 1 John 2:19).

·       "'Unless the minister shall fearlessly declare the whole truth, unless he shall have an eye single to the glory of God and shall work under the direction of the great Captain of his salvation,' Ellen White warned, 'unless he shall move to the front, irrespective of censure and uncontaminated by applause, he will be accounted an unfaithful watchman.'"

·       “Well I knew the meaning of this representation. I had my orders. I had heard the words, like a voice from our Captain, 'Meet it!'

·       "The enemy is preparing for his last campaign against the church. He has so concealed himself from view that many can hardly believe that he exists, much less can they be convinced of his amazing activity and power. They have to a great extent forgotten his past record; and when he makes another advance move, they will not recognize him as their enemy, that old serpent, but they will consider him a friend, one who is doing a good work. Boasting of their independence they will, under his specious, bewitching influence, obey the worst impulses of the human heart and yet believe that God is leading them. Could their eyes be opened to distinguish their captain, they would see that they are not serving God, but the enemy of all righteousness. They would see that their boasted independence is one of the heaviest fetters Satan can rivet on unbalanced minds." {5T 294.1}

·       Open sin "Christ has plainly taught that those who persist in open sin must be separated from the church..." E. G. White,  Christ's Object Lessons, 71.

·       It is a biblical principle that when sinners are not separated from a church, we must separate ourselves from such a “church.” That is precisely what Jesus and His followers did

·       "Christ has plainly taught that those who persist in open sin must be separated from the church..." E. G. White,  Christ's Object Lessons, 71.

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

·       "Christ has plainly taught that those who persist in open sin must be separated from the church, but He has not committed to us the work of judging character and motive.  He knows our nature too well to entrust this work to us.  Should we try to uproot from the church those whom we suppose to be spurious Christians, we should be sure to make mistakes.  Often we regard as hopeless subjects the very one whom Christ is drawing to Himself, it would perhaps extinguish their last hope.  Many who think themselves Christians will at last be found wanting.  Many will be in heaven who their neighbors supposed would never enter there.  Man judges from appearance, but God judges the heart.  The tares and the wheat are to grow together until the harvest; and the harvest is the end of probationary time." COL 71. 

 

·       “Satanic agencies in human form will take part in this last great conflict to oppose the building up of the kingdom of God. And heavenly angels in human guise will be on the field of action. Men and women have confederated to oppose the Lord God of heaven, and the church is only half awake to the situation. There needs to be much more of prayer, much more of earnest effort among professed believers.  {4BC 1142.7} 

 

·       “The two opposing parties will continue to exist till the closing up of the last great chapter in this world's history. Satanic agencies are in every city. We cannot afford to be off our guard for one moment (Letter 42, 1909).”  {4BC 1142.8}

·       "For the day is near, Even the day of the LORD is near; It will be a day of clouds, A time of doom for the nations. ‘A sword will come upon Egypt, And anguish will be in Ethiopia; When the slain fall in Egypt, They take away her wealth, And her foundations are torn down.’”

 

·       "Ethiopia, Put, Lud, all Arabia, Libya and the people of the land that is in league will fall with them by the sword." Ezekiel 30:1-5.

 

·       "He will also enter the Beautiful Land, and many countries will fall; but these will be rescued out of his hand: Edom, Moab and the foremost of the sons of Ammon. "Then he will stretch out his hand against other countries, and the land of Egypt will not escape. "But he will gain control over the hidden treasures of gold and silver and over all the precious things of Egypt; and Libyans and Ethiopians will follow at his heels.  Daniel 11:41-43.  

 

·       "In the heart of Christ, where reigned perfect harmony with God, there was perfect peace. He was never elated by applause, nor dejected by censure or disappointment. Amid the greatest opposition and the most cruel treatment, He was still of good courage. But many who profess to be His followers have an anxious, troubled heart, because they are afraid to trust themselves with God. They do not make a complete surrender to Him; for they shrink from the consequences that such a surrender may involve. Unless they do make this surrender, they cannot find peace." {DA 330.3}

 

·       “The perils of the last days are upon us. Devote not precious time in trying to convince those who would change the truth of God into a lie. Proclaim the third angel's message. Bear a straightforward, clear-cut message.” {RH, August 9, 1906 par. 9}

 

·       Thus I was speaking before a perplexed company just before I called them to take their stand on the right side. If some choose another position, let them alone. Labor for those who have never had the evidence of truth. So long as men hold fast to men, and believe men in the place of the word of God, you can do little to help them. You are working against principalities and powers, as is represented in Eph. 6:12.” {RH, August 9, 1906 par. 10}

 

·       “We are to revive the truth; to stand in the truth. Whoever is determined to depart from the faith can not be helped by you. All your reasoning will be as idle tales.” {RH, August 9, 1906 par. 11}

 

·       “Let not souls be drawn into Battle Creek. Warnings are to be given. A message similar to that borne by John the Baptist is to be heard. But beware of men; for they will seek to divert the mind from the necessity of heeding the true issues for this time. Carry on the work now for those who need the truth, and who have not resisted evidences of the truth for fallacies and scientific imaginations.” {RH, August 9, 1906 par. 7}

 

·       “I was directed by a messenger from heaven not to take the burden of picking up and answering all the sayings and doubts that are being put into many minds. "Stand as the messenger of God anywhere, in any place," I was bidden, "and bear the testimony I shall give you. Be free. Bear the testimonies that the Lord has for you to bear in reproof, in rebuke, in the work of encouraging and lifting up the soul; 'teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.'" {RH, August 9, 1906 par. 2}

 

·       “After the vision I prayed aloud with great fervor and earnestness. My soul was strengthened; for the words had been spoken: ‘Be strong, yea, be strong. Let none of the misleading words of ministers or physicians distress your mind. Tell them to take the light given them in publications. Truth will always bear away the victory. Go straight forward with your work.’” {RH, August 9, 1906 par. 3}

 

·       "If the Holy Spirit is rejected, all my words will not help to remove, even for the time being, the false representations that have been made, and Satan stands ready to invent more. If the evidence already given is rejected, all other evidence will be useless until there is seen the converting power of God upon minds. If the convincing impressions of the Holy Spirit made in the past will not be accepted as trustworthy evidence, nothing that can be presented hereafter will reach them, because the bewitching guile of Satan has perverted their discernment." {RH, August 9, 1906 par. 4}

 

Heb 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 

Heb 6:5   And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 

Heb 6:6   If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. 

Heb 6:7  For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: 

Heb 6:8   But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. 

There is no additional spiritual truth left to be worked on the part of those who have heard, but rejected the counsel that God’s true prophets have presented as advanced truth. I repeat some of the most solemn words in all Holy Writ, as follows:

 

"If the Holy Spirit is rejected, all my words will not help to remove, even for the time being, the false representations that have been made, and Satan stands ready to invent more. If the evidence already given is rejected, all other evidence will be useless until there is seen the converting power of God upon minds. If the convincing impressions of the Holy Spirit made in the past will not be accepted as trustworthy evidence, nothing that can be presented hereafter will reach them, because the bewitching guile of Satan has perverted their discernment." {RH, August 9, 1906 par. 4}

 

3.    The third most important issue I was shown that I should emphasize, is the typology of Jeremiah chapters 7 and 11, and the APOSTLES SAYING THAT THERE IS AN END-TIME COUNTERPART to those chapters which depict UNPARDONABLE SIN.

 

The only people that could possibly be reckoned as a COUNTERPART to the ancient Hebrews, is professing Seventh-day Adventists. Why? Because both claim to be:

 

·       A chosen people of God.

·       Keepers of the Commandments of God.

·       Possessive of the Gift of Prophecy (led by the Spirit of God).

·       A remnant people. Isaiah 37:31, 32.

·       Zion, The bride of Christ—the 144,000. Isaiah 62 and Revelation 14:1-5.

·       The Temple of the Lord. Jer 7:4 Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these.

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 apostles declared that the serious declarations in the above statement will have their COUNTERPART IN THE LAST DAYS. This is another evidential proof that the experience of the reprobate Jews and their fate, was a typology for Adventists at the end-time. This is the typology that every SDA leader (within and without the church) should teach.

·       I was shown that any SDA leader that does not teach these three serious warning issues, falls into the category of Isaiah 56:10-12, no matter how well informed they seem to be on certain bible doctrines. Their apparent “informed” state, while not teaching the full truth, serves to better deceive their subjects. I was shown that Walter Veith, Vance Ferrell and Andrew Henriques, are classic examples of appearing to be well informed, while neglecting to warn God’s people of these very serious issues and their accompanying responsibilities.

·       The abominations which the souls of apostate SDA’s delight in are modern-day idolatry.

·       Anything that comes between us and ALL God’s conditions for salvation, are idols. The new movement will fall because it refuses the CONDITIONS laid out in God’s Word. See the PROLEPSIS STATEMENT at the end of this manuscript.

COUNTERPART: "The members of our churches are not incorrigible; the fault is not so much to be charged upon them as upon their teachers. Their ministers do not feed them." Special Testimonies, Series A, No.1, p.46.

"Shall the Lord be compelled to say, `Pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to Me: for I will not hear thee' [Jeremiah 7:16]? `Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain....Wilt thou not from this time cry unto Me, My Father, thou art the guide of my youth' [Jeremiah 3:3-4]?...

COUNTERPART: "In the time of the Saviour, the Jews had so covered over the precious jewels of truth with the rubbish of tradition and fable, that it was impossible to distinguish the true from the false. The Saviour came to clear away the rubbish of superstition and long-cherished errors, and to set the jewels of God's word in the framework of truth. What would the Saviour do if he should come to us now as he did to the Jews? He would have to do a similar work in clearing away the rubbish of tradition and ceremony. The Jews were greatly disturbed when he did this work [As are SDAs today!]. They had lost sight of the original truth of God, but Christ brought it again to view. It is our work to free the precious truths of God from superstition and error." E.G. WhiteReview and Herald, Vol. 2, 308. 

“The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants [Jeremiah], ‘Pray not thou for this people, 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." {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 8}

“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." {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 9}

“The carnal mind is enmity against God. Not one of us can love and keep his commandments, only as we deny self, and take upon ourselves the yoke of Christ. Divine truth has never been in harmony with the traditions and customs of the world; it has never conformed to their opinions. Christ himself received not honor from men. He was meek and lowly of heart, and made himself of no reputation. His simple dress and unpretending manners were in so marked contrast to the pomposity, self-conceit, and vain display of the Pharisees, that they would not accept him. All witnessed the manifestation of divine power, but few saw in Christ, amid his sufferings and humiliation, the Saviour of the world.” {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 10}

“At the present day a form of godliness is popular, even in the world. A profession of Christianity costs little. But those who follow Jesus must walk in the same path of self-denial and cross-bearing which the Master trod. They may be lightly esteemed by the world, but they are honored of God.” {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 11}

JUDGED BY THE LIGHT WE HAVE:

“We are to be judged by the light that has been given us, and we can find no excuse by which to extenuate our course." Review and Herald, Vol. 3, p 69-70 (August 1, 1893). (Brackets by Ellen White)

Ellen White’s PROLEPSIS PROPHETIC STATEMENT prophesying the fate of the once SDA church militant before it formed a new movement, new organization (1SM 204-205), that removed God by removing pillar doctrines:

 

Here is the Spirit of Prophecy prophesied prolepsis statement regarding the final fate of that once Noble Ship. This is a major LYNCHPIN to my warning message. Can you explain it away? Are you a passenger on this once NOBLE SHIP, that is about to sink to rise no more?

 

Always remember that Ellen White prophesied the fate of TWO different “NOBLE SHIPS,” and one of them sinks to rise no more, to wit:

 

#1: "I lately read of a NOBLE SHIP that was plowing its way across the sea, when at midnight, with a terrific crash, it struck upon a rock; the passengers were awakened only to see with horror their hopeless condition, and with the ship they sank to rise no more. The MAN AT THE HELM [VERSUS CHRIST] had mistaken the beacon light, and hundreds of souls were at a moment's warning launched into eternity." E.G. White, Selected Messages, vol. 2, 128.

 

The leaders NEVER speak of the above NOBLE SHIP because the laity would enquire as to what it represents. It represents unrepentant Laodicea who fell from a lukewarm, to a cold apostate state. It represents the “church” mentioned in Ellen White’s prophetic PROLEPSIS statement further down.

 

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

 

The above statement represents those who adhere to the TRUE MESSAGE of Philadelphia in 1844. It is the MESSAGE and those who obey and abide by it that go through to port heaven.

 

NOTICE WHO SEPARATES FROM WHOM:

 

"Jesus sends HIS PEOPLE a message of warning to prepare them for his coming. To the prophet John was made known the closing work in the great plan of man's redemption. He beheld an angel flying 'in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him for the hour of his Judgment is come and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters [Rev. 14:6, 7.].

The angel represented in prophecy as delivering this message,  symbolizes a class of faithful men, who, obedient to the promptings of God's Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message was not to be committed to the religious leaders of the people. They had failed to preserve their connection with God, and had REFUSED THE LIGHT FROM HEAVEN therefore they WERE NOT of the number described by the apostle Paul: 'But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day we are not of the night nor of darkness' [1 Thess. 5:4, 5]. 

The watchmen upon the walls of Zion should be the first to catch the tidings of the Saviour's advent, the first to lift their voices to proclaim him near, the first to warn the people to prepare for his coming. But they were at ease, dreaming of peace and safety, while the people were asleep in their sins. Jesus saw HIS CHURCH, like the barren fig-tree, covered with pretentious leaves, yet destitute of precious fruit. There was a boastful observance of the forms of religion, while the spirit of true humility, penitence and faith--which alone could render the service acceptable to God--was lacking. Instead of the graces of the Spirit, there were manifested pride, formalism, vainglory, selfishness, oppression. A BACKSLIDING CHURCH closed their eyes to the signs of the times. God did nor forsake them, or suffer his faithfulness to fail but they departed from him, and SEPARATED THEMSELVES from his love. As they REFUSED TO COMPLY WITH THE CONDITIONS, his promises were NOT FULFILLED to them."  E.G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy, Vol. 4, pp. 199-200 [The 1884 edition of The Great Controversy, 199, 200].

 

Note these important delineations in the above statement:

·       Ellen White is addressing HIS PEOPLE.

·       Ellen White is addressing those to whom God committed the EVERLASTING GOSPEL of Revelation 14.

·       Ellen White is defining the angel represented in prophecy as symbolizing a class of faithful men.

·       Ellen White is saying emphatically that the final Loud Cry message is delivered NOT BY THE LEADERS OF THE SDA CHURCH, but by a class of faithful men, because the leaders had failed to preserve their connection with God and had refused light from heaven!

·       Ellen White is addressing "watchmen upon the walls of Zion," NOT FALLEN BABYLON!

·       Twice Ellen White mentions HIS CHURCH, NOT FALLEN BABYLON.

·       It is the MEMBERS of said church that SEPARATE FROM GOD, AND THAT IS WHY WE HAVE TO SEPARATE FROM THEM OR BE CORPORATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR APOSTASY.

·       The above reasons are why there is another coming out of a faithful remnant FROM APOSTATE JERUSALEM AS WELL AS FALLEN BABYLON.

·       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. 

Ellen White is addressing a BACKSLIDING CHURCH whose leaders and laity alike failed and rejected light from heaven and who refused to comply with the conditions so that God's promises are not fulfilled to them. Consider the following commentary on the 1884 Great Controversy that the above statement is quoted from:

“Consider for a few moments the chapter in the first edition of Great Controversy, Volume IV, published by Pacific Press in 1884. In Chapter XXVII, ‘The Snares of Satan,’ you find that about four pages in the latter part of the chapter were omitted from the later editions of Great Controversy. These four pages are to be found in Testimonies to Ministers, pages 472 to 475. The information contained in these four pages is very valuable to Seventh-day Adventists and was very appropriately included in the first edition of Great Controversy, Volume IV, which when it was published was like the other volumes considered to be A MESSAGE ESPECIALLY TO SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS, and to [all] Christian people sympathizing with them in beliefs and aims.” W. C. White, Selected Messages, Appendix C, pp. 452, 453.

Who are the “OTHERS” Chosen to Give the Final Message

Laodiceans are totally secure in the belief that since they regard Laodicea as the FINAL CHURCH, that God is in NEED of them to give the final message to the world, no matter what that apostate church does. That is not true as the following statement attests:

"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.

 

Act 17:25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

 

The Jews made the same fatal mistake—they felt that they were the ONLY CHOSEN PEOPLE of God, and that He would keep His promises to them WITHOUT CONDITION. For that reason, they also refused GOD’S CONDITIONS SO THAT HIS PROMISES WERE NOT AND WILL NOT BE FULFILLED TO THEM.

 

Who Finishes the Work?

 

Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 405-406, tells us exactly who gives the final message to the world, as does Isaiah 62. Page 405 says that the Voice and God and the voice of the bride, awakens ALL TEN sleeping virgins, for Matthew 25 says: “all those virgins slumbered and slept.”

 

"Lingering near [not at] 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 of the bridegroom. But there is a delay [since 1844]. 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 [all ten slept Matt. 25:5], 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 [character]. They did not anticipate so long a delay, and they have not prepared for the emergence." E. G. White, Christ's Object Lessons,  pp. 405, 406.

 

If the voice of the bride awakens the 10 virgins, then the bride is a separate entity, who is awake before the awakening of the 10 virgins. This is attested to in Isaiah 62:11, where the mother, Zion, says the same thing, in similar other words, to her daughter.

 

Only Zion, Philadelphia, New Jerusalem, the Bride, the 144,000, the Firstfruits [Firstborn] go into the Temple on Mt. Zion.

 

"Him that overcometh will I make a pillar IN THE TEMPLE of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is NEW JERUSALEM, which cometh down out of heaven from my God and I will write upon him my NEW NAME." Rev. 3:12.

Conclusions:

 

Zion consists of the earthly representatives of the heavenly church of Hebrews 12:22, 23. They are like heavenly messengers who awaken the 10 virgin church militants of guests. Only Zion, the bride, goes into the Temple on Mt. Zion, as only the priests of the earthly Sanctuary, went into the Temple: (Rev. 3:12--made a pillar--leaders-in the Temple) and:

 

"And as we were about to enter the holy temple, Jesus raised His lovely voice and said, 'Only the 144,000 enter this place," and we shouted, 'Alleluia." E. G. White, Early Writings, 19.

                                                                                               

"The leaven if godliness has not entirely lost its power. At the time when the danger and depression of the church are greatest, the little company who are standing in the light will be sighing and crying for the abominations that are done in the land. But MORE ESPECIALLY will their prayers arise in behalf of the church because ITS MEMBERS are doing after the manner of the world." Testimonies, vol. 5, 209, 210.

 

Second Proof that the Bride Gives the Final Loud Cry

 

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 be married. 

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 gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people. 

Isa 62:11   Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, 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 not forsaken. 

 

Verse 11 (above) is a paraphrase of the final Midnight Cry, “Behold the bridegroom cometh, God ye out to Meet Him.” Matthew 25 and COL, 405.

 

Zion, the virgin--bethulah (strictly pure) bride, the 144,000, WITHOUT FAULT, Rev. 14:1-5,

 

Zion (Sion) is the church in heaven, where the bride now enters by faith. EW, 251, 255. She is the earthly representative of the heavenly church Sion. GC, 426, 247. She is the bride; if the bride she cannot be the guests and the guests cannot be the bride The sons and the daughter(s) of Zion are the guests—the repentant wise virgins who were concubines, not strictly pure bethulah virgins. Bethulah is the Hebrew word for virgin, meaning a strictly pure virgin. In Isaiah 62, she has sons and a daughter. These are the wise virgins that are saved as martyrs, for only the 144,000 are translated without seeing death.

 

Zion the Church in Heaven

 

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, 

Heb 12:24   And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaket

 

Zion (Sion) is the TRUE REFORMERS:

 

"Characteristics of True Reformers.--Here [Isa. 8:11-14] are given the characteristics of those who shall be reformers, who will bear the banner of the third angel’s message, these who avow themselves God's commandment-keeping people, and who honor God, and are earnestly engaged, in the sight of all the universe, in building up the old waste places.  Who is it that calls them, The repairer of the breach, The restorers of paths to dwell in? It is God.  Their names are registered [written--Heb. 12:22, 23] in heaven as reformers, restorers, as raising the foundations of many generations." E. G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 4, 1151, & Review and Herald, Oct. 13, 1891.

 

The church triumphant of true reformers has always been in existence to come to the aid of the sleeping virgin church militant if she will receive that 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.

 

The “Hidden Ones

 

If all that appears to be divine life were such in reality; if all who profess to present the truth to the world were preaching for the truth and not against it, and if they were men of God guided by His Spirit,—then might we see something cheering amid the prevailing moral darkness. But the spirit of antichrist is prevailing to such an extent as never before. Well may we exclaim: “Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.” I know that many think far too favorably of the present time. These ease-loving souls will be engulfed in the general ruin. Yet we do not despair. We have been inclined to think that where there are no faithful ministers there can be no true Christians, but this is not the case. God has promised that where the shepherds are not true He will take charge of the flock Himself. God has never made the flock wholly dependent upon human instrumentalities. But the days of purification of the church are hastening on apace. God will have a people pure and true. In the mighty sifting soon to take place we shall be better able to measure the strength of Israel. The signs reveal that the time is near when the Lord will manifest that His fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly purge His floor. {5T 79.4}

 

Note by Ron: Some deduce from the above statement on purification of the church means the final purification of the once SDA church militant that apostatized and formed a new movement that “removed God.” 1SM 204-205. That cannot be because of all Ellen White’s statements that Ezekiel 9 will BEGIN at His church, His Sanctuary, 5T 211. That cannot be true while at the same time that church is purified! That does not equate with the PREFIGURE statement in Great Controversy, p. 25, wherein Ellen White says that the Ezekiel 9 destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, was a PREFIGURE of the terrors of the last great day. Then she says WHERE those terrors begin, as does the Bible. BEGIN AT MY SANCTUARY, Ezekiel 9:6:

 

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.

 

In Testimonies, Vol. 5, pp. 451, 464, Ellen White parallels the Destruction of Jerusalem with the National Sunday Law. In that PREFIGURE, there was no purification of the apostate Jewish Temple organization. All true Christians fled to Pella, and were saved. They followed Isaiah 37:31, 32, in what Ellen White said was a PREFIGURE:

 

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. 

 

(Cont. 5T 81): “The days are fast approaching when there will be great perplexity and confusion. Satan, clothed in angel robes, will deceive, if possible, the very elect. There will be gods many and lords many. Every wind of doctrine will be blowing. Those who have rendered supreme homage to “science falsely so called” will not be the leaders then. Those who have trusted to intellect, genius, or talent will not then stand at the head of rank and file. They did not keep pace with the light. Those who have proved themselves unfaithful will not then be entrusted with the flock. In the last solemn work few great men will be engaged. They are self-sufficient, independent of God, and He cannot use them. The Lord has faithful servants, who in the shaking, testing time will be disclosed to view. There are precious ones now hidden who have not bowed the knee to Baal. They have not had the light which has been shining in a concentrated blaze upon you [SDA LAODICEANS]. But it may be under a rough and uninviting exterior the pure brightness of a genuine Christian character will be revealed. In the day time we look toward heaven but do not see the stars. They are there, fixed in the firmament, but the eye cannot distinguish them. In the night we behold their genuine luster. {5T 80.1}

 

Note by Ron: There are precious ones NOW HIDDEN, who have not bowed the knee to Baal, as new movement SDA’s have done via imbibing of strictly forbidden ecumenical ASSOCIATION, COUNCIL/COUNSEL, GIRDING, CONFEDERACY/CONSPIRACY, thus returning to the iniquities of their forefathers (Jer. 11:10, and Isaiah 8:9-12,) For this they are “BROKEN IN PIECES,” WITH NO OTHER OPTION STATED. This implies UNPARDONABLE SIN. This implies Ezekiel 9 slaughter, and in Ezekiel 9:2, the marginal reading for slaughter weapon is “a weapon of his breaking in pieces.” A violation of Isaiah 8:9-12, as with Jeremiah 11:9-15, are God’s lines in the sand depicting UNPARDONABLE SIN FOR A CORPORATE PEOPLE, but not on an individual basis for individuals who repent WHEN they become aware of the apostasy.

The Jews committed unpardonable sin in conspiring-confederating with God’s enemies from whom they were called out. They were not cleansed. They were slaughtered per Ezekiel 9. That was a PREFIGURE of what is going to happen to God’s second “chosen people,” and for the same reasons. In 1955, Adventists conspired and confederated with the Evangelicals (their forefathers), to teach antichrist doctrine on the human nature of Christ. Twenty-five years later in 1980, they conspired with the world to teach the Trinity Doctrine, which, in effect, does away with the Incarnation Atonement Sacrifice, by its teaching that all three members to the Godhead are co-ETERNAL. It was God (Christ), coming in the likeness of human sinful flesh that produced the INDEPENDENT HUMANITY PERSON of Christ, and that human person had NEVER PRIORLY BEEN PART OF THE GODHEAD. Thus, the three members of the Godhead are not co-ETERNAL. The humanity of Christ was ADOPTED into the Godhead after His overcoming sacrifice on the cross. I repeat the following statement twice in this manuscript for articulation purposes:

THE HUMANITY PERSON OF CHRIST WAS ADOPTED INTO THE GODHEAD OF HEAVEN:

“In taking our nature, the Saviour has bound Himself to humanity by a tie that is never to be broken. Through the eternal ages He is linked with us. "God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son." He gave Him not only to bear our sins, and to die as our sacrifice; He gave Him to the fallen race. To assure us of His immutable counsel of peace, God gave His only-begotten Son to become one of the human family, forever to retain His human nature. This is the pledge that God will fulfill His word. "Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder." Isa. 9:6. God has adopted human nature in the person of His Son, and has carried the same into the highest heaven. . . . Heaven is enshrined in humanity, and humanity is enfolded in the bosom of Infinite Love.” {FLB 45.4}

 

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. 

 

The time is not far distant when the test will come to every soul. The mark of the beast will be urged upon us. Those who have step by step yielded to worldly demands and conformed to worldly customs will not find it a hard matter to yield to the powers that be, rather than subject themselves to derision, insult, threatened imprisonment, and death. The contest is between the commandments of God and the commandments of men. In this time the gold will be separated from the dross in the church. True godliness will be clearly distinguished from the appearance and tinsel of it. Many a star that we have admired for its brilliancy will then go out in darkness. Chaff like a cloud will be borne away on the wind, even from places where we see only floors of rich wheat. All who assume the ornaments of the sanctuary, but are not clothed with Christ’s righteousness, will appear in the shame of their own nakedness. {5T 81.1}

When trees without fruit are cut down as cumberers of the ground, when multitudes of false brethren are distinguished from the true, then the hidden ones will be revealed to view, and with hosannas range under the banner of Christ. Those who have been timid and self-distrustful will declare themselves openly for Christ and His truth. The most weak and hesitating in the church will be as David—willing to do and dare. The deeper the night for God’s people, the more brilliant the stars. Satan will sorely harass the faithful; but, in the name of Jesus, they will come off more than conquerors. Then will the church of Christ appear “fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners.” {5T 81.2}

 

Some, in fact MANY SDA’s think that the above statement means we are not to separate from the apostate SDA new movement until the Sunday Law, when chaff (tares) are separated from the wheat. THAT IS NOT THE MEANING OF THE STATEMENT FOR VERY IMPORTANT REASONS, TO WIT:

1.    Dross and Chaff are like tares, and the tares dwell with the wheat until the Sunday Law. Tares, insincere believers, are not OPEN APOSTATE SINNERS, because Ellen White said they are to be separated from the church if they won’t reform.

2.    Open Sinners (THORNS WHO CHOKE AND KILL THE WHEAT) are to be removed, and if they are not removed because they are the leaders who “brought in” the new movement, new organization” (1SM 204-5), we have to separate or be choked and killed out.

3.    Wheat cannot mature amongst THORNS, OPEN SINNERS, but the wheat evidently CAN MATURE amongst tares, so tares ARE NOT open sinners.

4.    "Christ has plainly taught that those who persist in open sin must be separated from the church, but He has not committed to us the work of judging character and motive.  He knows our nature too well to entrust this work to us.  Should we try to uproot from the church those whom we suppose to be spurious Christians, we should be sure to make mistakes.  Often we regard as hopeless subjects the very one whom Christ is drawing to Himself, it would perhaps extinguish their last hope.  Many who think themselves Christians will at last be found wanting.  Many will be in heaven who their neighbors supposed would never enter there.  Man judges from appearance, but God judges the heart.  The tares and the wheat are to grow together until the harvest; and the harvest is the end of probationary time." COL 71. 

It is impossible to unite with the corrupt apostates and remain/become pure:

"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.

 

The above statement would be foolish, self-contradictory, superfluous, redundant, if we cannot judge what Ellen White brands as corrupt. If judging corruptness is only idle and ill conceived criticism, based on focusing on mere flaws, defects and weaknesses, then we should have remained with Rome! Open apostasy is abominable corruptness.

5.    The wheat cannot mature amongst thorns: "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.

·       Obviously we would have to separate from anything that keeps the wheat from maturing.

·       Wheat can mature amongst tares whom Ellen White defines as insincere believers, whose motives we would have to JUDGE in order to uproot them. COL, 70-72. Insincere believers is implied. But we can JUDGE apostasy, or we wouldn’t be able to JUDGE who Babylon is. Apostasy is OPEN SIN.

·       If it is impossible to unite with CORRUPT APOSTATES and remain/become pure, HOW WOULD THE BRIDE OF CHRIST BE WITHOUT FAULT (Rev. 14:1-5), when MEMBERS of a church are corporately responsible for the APOSTASY.

·       As previously stated, Ellen White directly parallels the Sunday law with the ascendance of the Roman General Cestius Gaulus upon Jewish soil in A.D. 66, 3 ½ years prior to the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus, in A.D. 70.

·       Christians had been gathered out of the apostate Jewish Temple organization from A.D. 34, some 32 years before A.D. 66, at which time all true Christians were instructed by God’s true prophets to flee to Pella in Perea. That was a PREFIGURE PARALLEL of what should occur now as far as true SDA Christians are concerned.

·       In the 5T 81 statement, AT THE NATIONAL SUNDAY LAW, THE GOLD (WHEAT) WILL BE SEPARATED FROM THE CHAFF (TARES) IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE LAND, EVEN HOME CHURCHES. Remember, it is possible for the wheat to mature amongst CHAFF, but not THORNS, OPEN SIN APOSTASY. THORNS CHOKE AND KILL THE WHEAT, and prevent it from maturing, but the wheat can mature amongst chaff.

·       Wheat cannot mature amongst a new movement BROUGHT IN AMONG SDA’s, that removes God, 1SM 205.

·       There is NO VIRTUE that can be gained from a new movement that removed God.

·       Ellen White said that the church is THE FIELD where the tares are burned. God says the same thing in Ezekiel 9.

·       The church as the field:

"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.

·       The wheat cannot grow and ripen in any apostate church. That is the reason for every separation that ever occurred.

·       Where was the church when the disciples separated true Christians from the apostate Temple, into home churches?

Ellen White’s DIRECT Paralleling of the National Sunday Law with Events of the Destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70

By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near.” {5T 451.1}

“As the approach of the Roman armies was a sign to the disciples of the impending destruction of Jerusalem, so may this apostasy be a sign to us that the limit of God’s forbearance is reached, that the measure of our nation’s iniquity is full, and that the angel of mercy is about to take her flight, never to return. The people of God will then be plunged into those scenes of affliction and distress which prophets have described as the time of Jacob’s trouble. The cries of the faithful, persecuted ones ascend to heaven. And as the blood of Abel cried from the ground, there are voices also crying to God from martyrs’ graves, from the sepulchers of the sea, from mountain caverns, from convent vaults: “How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost Thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” {5T 451.2}

“It is no time now for God’s people to be fixing their affections or laying up their treasure in the world. The time is not far distant, when, like the early disciples, we shall be forced to seek a refuge in desolate and solitary places. As the siege of Jerusalem by the Roman armies was the signal for flight to the Judean Christians, so the assumption of power on the part of our nation in the decree enforcing the papal sabbath will be a warning to us. It will then be time to leave the large cities, preparatory to leaving the smaller ones for retired homes in secluded places among the mountains. And now, instead of seeking expensive dwellings here, we should be preparing to move to a better country, even a heavenly. Instead of spending our means in self-gratification, we should be studying to economize. Every talent lent of God should be used to His glory in giving the warning to the world. God has a work for His colourers to do in the cities. Our missions must be sustained; new missions must be opened. To carry forward this work successfully will require no small outlay. Houses of worship are needed, where the people may be invited to hear the truths for this time. For this very purpose, God has entrusted a capital to His stewards. Let not your property be tied up in worldly enterprises, so that this work shall be hindered. Get your means where you can handle it for the benefit of the cause of God. Send your treasures before you into heaven. {5T 464.3}

Ellen White’s Statement That the Destruction of Jerusalem was a PREFIGURE (TYPE)

“The future was mercifully veiled from the disciples. Had they at that time fully comprehended the two awful facts—the Redeemer’s sufferings and death, and the destruction of their city and temple—they would have been overwhelmed with horror. Christ presented before them an outline of the prominent events to take place before the close of time. His words were not then fully understood; but their meaning was to be unfolded as His people should need the instruction therein given. The prophecy which He uttered was twofold in its meaning; while foreshadowing the destruction of Jerusalem, it prefigured also the terrors of the last great day.” {GC 25.3}

And where do the terrors of the last great day BEGIN? If the church was the ship that goes through to port heaven, why would Ezekiel 9 slaughter of men, maidens and little children begin there? The ship that goes through is THE MESSAGE of Philadelphia, Zion, the 144,000

If the church was the ship that goes through, how could that be when at the time the danger of the church is greatest, (The National Sunday Law), the MEMBERS will be doing after the manner of the world?

     “The leaven of godliness has not entirely lost its power. At the time when the danger and depression of the church are greatest, the little company who are standing in the light will be sighing and crying for the abominations that are done in the land. But more especially will their prayers arise in behalf of the church because its members are doing after the manner of the world.” {5T 209.3}

The chapter the following statement appears in, begins on p. 207, quoting Ezekiel 9:

“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.” {5T 211.2}

The Firmament of Chosen Ones

The final evidence I proffer as candidates who give the three angel’s messages is the Firmament of Chosen Ones.

Firmament of Chosen ones -- “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.’ Revelation :16; Philippians 2:15. The darker the night, the more brilliantly will they shine.”— Prophets and Kings, 188-189.

 

Compare with Isaiah 62:1-5, as to how Zion, the bride’s brightness will shine.

 

I firmly believe and agree with Ellen White that God will have many who may have never heard the name Seventh-day Adventist, who will make up His bride, because SDA's failed and He had to go to OTHERS. Upward Look, 131.

 

Who are the Eleventh Hour Workers?

 

     Now we are ready to explore quotations that tell us who the eleventh-hour workers are. “The laborers for the Master were His official servants, upon whom He laid the weightiest responsibilities to do His work…Some were found waiting for work at the eleventh hour, only one hour before the close of the working-day.” Review and Herald, June 28, 1898.

 

     In the second quotation we find where these workers are now located:

 

“There are diligent students of the word of prophecy in all parts of the world, who are obtaining light and still greater light from searching the Scriptures. This is true of all nations, of all tribes, and of all peoples.  These will come from the grossest error, and will take the place of those who have had opportunities and privileges and have not prized them. These have worked out their own salvation with fear and trembling, lest they should become deficient in doing the ways and will of God, while those who have had great light, through the perversity of their own natural heart, turned away from Christ because they were displeased with his requirements [THEY REFUSED THE CONDITIONS]. But God will not be left without witnesses. The one-hour laborers will be brought in at the eleventh hour, and will consecrate their ability and all their entrusted means to advance the work. These will receive the reward for their faithfulness, because they are true to principle, and shun not their duty to declare the whole counsel of God. When those who have had abundance of light throw off the restraint which the word of God imposes, and make void his law, others will come in to fill their places and take their crown.” Review and Herald, June 15, 1897.

“Persecution in its varied forms is the development of a principle which will exist as long as Satan exists and Christianity has vital power. No man can serve God without enlisting against himself the opposition of the hosts of darkness. Evil angels will assail him, alarmed that his influence is taking the prey from their hands. Evil men, rebuked by his example, will unite with them in seeking to separate him from God by alluring temptations. When these do not succeed, then a compelling power is employed to force the conscience.” {GC 610.2}

“But so long as Jesus remains man’s intercessor in the sanctuary above, the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit is felt by rulers and people. It still controls to some extent the laws of the land. Were it not for these laws, the condition of the world would be much worse than it now is. While many of our rulers are active agents of Satan, God also has His agents among the leading men of the nation. The enemy moves upon his servants to propose measures that would greatly impede the work of God; but statesmen who fear the Lord are influenced by holy angels to oppose such propositions with unanswerable arguments. Thus a few men will hold in check a powerful current of evil. The opposition of the enemies of truth will be restrained that the third angel’s message may do its work. When the final warning shall be given, it will arrest the attention of these leading men through whom the Lord is now working, and some of them will accept it, and will stand with the people of God through the time of trouble.” {GC 610.3}

“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. The advent movement of 1840-44 was a glorious manifestation of the power of God; the first angel’s message was carried to every missionary station in the world, and in some countries there was the greatest religious interest which has been witnessed in any land since the Reformation of the sixteenth century; but these are to be exceeded by the mighty movement under the last warning of the third angel.” {GC 611.1}

The work will be similar to that of the Day of Pentecost. As the “former rain” was given, in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the opening of the gospel, to cause the upspringing of the precious seed, so the “latter rain” will be given at its close for the ripening of the harvest. “Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.” Hosea 6:3. “Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain.” Joel 2:23. “In the last days, saith God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh.” “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Acts 2:17, 21. {GC 611.2}

“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. Here are “the times of refreshing” to which the apostle Peter looked forward when he said: “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; and He shall send Jesus.” Acts 3:19, 20. {GC 611.3}

“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. Satan also works, with lying wonders, even bringing down fire from heaven in the sight of men. Revelation 13:13. Thus the inhabitants of the earth will be brought to take their stand.” {GC 612.1}

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 612.2}

Conclusions:

·       I can’t adequately express the urgency with which my Angel stressed the importance of the three truths that are requisite to the giving of the three angel’s messages.

·       It is necessary to state these THREE important truths repeatedly, because they involve UNPARDONALBE SIN if there is a continuum in them on a corporate basis. But individuals may repent IF THEY DO SO WHEN THEY ARE APPRISED OF THE APOSTASY.  This was highly stressed to me by the Angel of the Lord.

·       It is foolhardy for Laodiceans to call folk out of Babylon, when they themselves are in liaison with Babylon’s Associations, Councils/Counsels, Girdings and Confederacies/Conspiracies, to only make their “converts” twice the children of hell. Matt. 23:15.

·       The three angel’s messages need to be given by the True Reformers, so that the faithful may be brought into home churches that will not defile them with any liaison with Babylon’s ASSOCIATIONS and CONFEDERACIES.

·       I was shown that just as Billy Graham, a 33 Degree Mason, led prospective Christians into Babylon for the Ezekiel 9 literal fulfillment on that entity, GC 553-556, so Walter Veith, John Carter and Andrew Henriques, and all other supporters of the new movement that removed God, are gathering unwitting subjects into the Synagogue of Satan for the slaughter of men, maidens and little children. THIS IS SERIOUS TRUTH, AND ALL WHO SUPPORT THOSE WHO TEACH THAT WE ARE TO REMAIN IN THE APOSTATE SDA CHURCH, ARE CORPORATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE MOST SERIOUS OF ALL THE ABOMINATIONS FOR WHICH WE ARE TO SIGH AND CRY. By not calling for a separation, it is implied by some, like Andrew Henriques, that they are to remain in the new movement, and further, he says that the 144,000 derive from that apostate church. Read our document on Andrew Henriques and the 144,000. (See Addendum at end of this manuscript.)

·       Our brothers and sisters are going to perish with the new movement if we don’t warn them to separate and form home churches. We are to tell them whether they will hear or forbear, lest their blood be on our backs. WE ARE OUR BROTHER’S KEEPER.

Eze 3:17   Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. 

Eze 3:18   When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 

Eze 3:19   Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. 

Eze 3:27   But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forbear: for they are a rebellious house. 

·       WE HAVE THE SAME RESPONSIBILITY AS EZEKIEL TO BE A WATCHMAN AND WARN:

·       “So far as his opportunities extend, every one who has received the light of truth is under the same solemn and fearful responsibility as was the prophet of Israel, to whom the word of the Lord came, saying: "Son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.  When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.  Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity, but thou has delivered thy soul.”  Eze 33:7-9.  The Great Controversy,  p. 459.

·       Walter Veith does attest that Billy Graham was a Free Mason.

·       It is so necessary that ALL THE PURE TRUTH is to be given to all prospective members of God’s church, because Satan will engulf them upon the errors that they unwittingly are taught by however well-intentioned new movement evangelists who are not teaching all the pure truth. Matthew 23:15 is no idle words. Ellen White said that SDA’s will be “BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL,’ and it is our duty to prevent that happening to those who would embrace Adventism unawares of Satan’s traps that are well laid and that will deceive, and indeed are deceiving many of the “brightest lights.”

·       I will give you an example of the deception I speak of. Reindeer Bruinsma was the President of a German Conference of SDA’s. He joined his conference to the Ecumenical Council of  Churches in Germany. Walter Veith said Bruinsma was only individually responsible, implying that the church members were not in any way responsible. Thus, Walter Veith misinforms Adventists of the huge factor involved in corporate responsibility for any and all open sin apostasy. The link below tells of the German membership.

·       I have merely obeyed the Lord’s admonition to show His rebellious people why Ezekiel 9 destruction, the same as depicted in The Great Controversy, Chapter 1, is going to be literally fulfilled once again upon His second “chosen people.” Out of care and love, this is my attempt to warn them from the debacle to come. I am fully aware that this warning is to a people who are rebellious, and feel rich, increased with goods, and IN NEED OF NOTHING.

Begin at My 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, Vol. 5, 211.   

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

 

“The time will soon come when the prophecy of Ezekiel 9 will be fulfilled; that prophecy should be carefully studied, for it will be fulfilled to the very letter.”— Ellen G. White 1888 Materials, p. 1303.

 

The Signs of the Times, February 12, 1880:  “The desolation of Jerusalem stands as a solemn warning before the eyes of modern Israel.”

 

“The desolation of Jerusalem in the days of Jeremiah is a solemn warning to modern Israel, that the counsels and admonitions given them through chosen instrumentalities cannot be disregarded with impunity.”  Prophets and Kings, 416.
