110. My Vision on the Ultimate Objective

Of The Regeneration of the Bride of Christ

The word of life is that by which the Christian is to live. From this word we are to receive a continually increasing knowledge of truth. From it we are to gain light, purity, goodness, and a faith which works by love and purifies the soul. It is given us that we may be redeemed and presented faultless before the throne of divine glory. Wondrous victory, gained by Christ in man’s behalf!—E. G. White, Letter 60, April 21, 1900, to a young man seeking Ellen White’s counsel.

 


This Friday, May 6, 2016, the Lord gave me one of my most precious visions to date other than the earlier vision on the Godhead. Today’s vision concerns the ultimate objective of the principle of Regeneration of the Bride of Christ, the 144,000. Since all truth is contingent as a linked chain, I will needs refresh the readers mind of my past vision on Regeneration as it relates to the Investigative Judgment.

 

No teaching of Seventh-day Adventism is taking a greater hit today than the subject of the Investigative Judgment. It is thus that the Lord is giving advanced light on this issue to encourage and inspire His bride, the 144,000. Previously, the Lord gave me a vision that the Investigative Judgment consists of the Bride of Christ from every age being born again after the Investigative Judgment began in 1844. This provides for a real life judgment of every person, which is the answer to the following “apparent” conundrums:


1. To prove how Revelation 3:10-12 is fulfilled to Philadelphians of the days of the disciples of Christ. Those verses pose the following problems without the truth of Regeneration:

 

Rev 3:10   Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 

Rev 3:11   Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 

Rev 3:12   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.

 

The first church of Philadelphia existed in the first century A.D. How could they be kept through the time of trouble at the end-time without the Investigative Judgment Regeneration Principle? Someone has advanced the opinion that the Philadelphians could be raised in the special resurrection, but that is not a viable option because of the fact that Scripture says that the 144,000 come out of great tribulation, and Philadelphians are the only church that is faultless. They are faultless and they enter the Temple on Mt. Zion, so that is sufficient proof to anyone that they comprise the 144,000. They go through the tribulation and are protected from it. Notice in the following verses that it is those who have come out of great tribulation that serve Him day and night IN HIS TEMPLE, and Ellen White says that only the 144,000 enter that Temple:

 

Rev 7:14   And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Revelation 7 deals with the twelve tribes that comprise the 144,000.

Rev 7:15   Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.


2.    Ellen White says that only the 144,000 enter the Temple on Mt. Zion in heaven. She says that the 144,000 are translated without seeing death. The Bible says that the 144,000 come out of great tribulation. Revelation 3:12 (cited below) says that Philadelphians are made PILLARS (LEADERS) in the Temple.


The principle of Investigative Judgment Regeneration of the Bride of Christ from all generations prior to 1844.


3.    The true character of every person as tested by Satan’s end time perfection of his deceptions to tempt and destroy humanity. Every person lives out the character developed in his/her first lifetime.


4.    In Desire of Ages, 179, the disciples of Christ are referred to as the bride. The bride is the 144,000 who are WITHOUT FAULT. The bride of Christ represents His Body which must be WITHOUT FAULT. The bride, the 144,000, enter the Temple in heaven, and Ellen White says that only the 144,000 who are translated without seeing death enter that temple. Will the disciples, Christ’s Bride of the day, be exempt from being amongst the 144,000 who enter the Temple in heaven? Nay. The Principle of Regeneration answers to this important issue.

 

5.    To test all persons who have ever lived, by the most severe temptations of Satan which he has perfected for the end-time.

 

6.    Regeneration provides an answer to the “apparent” problem of Ellen White’s statement in 1856, that some persons attending a conference at that time would be alive when Christ comes, while others would be food for worms. Being food for worms does not necessarily mean loss of eternal life, but rather that such would not be one of the 144,000, because only the 144,000 of saved people will be alive when Christ comes to be translated without seeing death AFTER THEY ARE REGENERATED. They still will have died only ONCE.

 

7.    Regeneration of all who have lived for the live Investigative Judgment, proves the character of all before the universe so that there will be no basis for questioning God’s justice in any wise.


FROM THIS POINT ON, IS WHAT I WAS SHOWN IN VISION TODAY:


a)    The 144,000 bride has served as a proxy representative of Christ on this earth in every generation. She is the body. He is the Head. The Great Controversy, p. 426.

b)   Jhn 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

c)    Jhn 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

d)   Phl 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Because the Bride is invested with the Holy Spirit, the Mind of Christ, and His abiding in, and indwelling her, and she in Him, the efficacy of His Holy Spirit’s power to overcome is vested in His Bride representative on earth. Thus, Christ is now still tempted through the persons of His Bride, fulfilling the following Bible injunction: Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.

e)    I was shown that heretofore, Christ was tempted in all points like we are IN BROAD PRINCIPLE, but that He could not have been tempted in ALL POINTS LITERALLY such as we are, because there are many temptations today that did not exist during His sojourn on earth, such as: television, movie theatres, night clubs, etc. But when Christ’s Bride, His body, who has the mind and Spirit of Christ abiding in, and indwelling her, is tempted with Satan’s state of the art end-time deception and temptations, Christ is thus tempted in the person of His Bride. This demonstrates the intimate liaison between Christ and His bride, His body. This is how Christ is tempted in all points like as we are. This is how important it is for the Bride who is a reflection of the mind and body of Christ, to be pure and without fault. The bride is chosen for the Son by the Father. Christ speaks of those whom the Father has given Him, and the Father knows who will prove to be overcomers without blame (BLAMELESS). Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

f)     Rev 14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

g)   Jhn 17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

h)   Jhn 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

i)     Jhn 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.


A.  Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 405-406:


"To Meet the Bridegroom"

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


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


Lingering near the bride's house [NOT AT IT] are ten young women robed in white. Each carries a lighted lamp and a small flagon for oil. All are anxiously watching for the appearance

Page 406

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


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


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


The two classes of watchers represent the two classes who profess to be waiting for their Lord. They are called virgins because they profess a pure faith. By the lamps is represented the word of God. The psalmist says, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto may path." E. G. White, Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 405-406.

·       Jesus (the bridegroom), by torchlight (the Spirit of Prophecy—Holy Spirit) leads the bridal party from her father’s house (of apostasy), to His own (true Jerusalem) where a feast is provided—(The disciples, His Bride, Desire of Ages, 179, were at the Last Supper Feast). Having qualified for partaking of His blood and His body, they qualified to receive His Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. They were in the upper room when they received the Holy Spirit, and NOT AT THE APOSTATE TEMPLE.

·       There was a midnight cry awakening in 1844, but during the tarrying time (since then), the ten virgins became weary of waiting and went to sleep. The bride never sleeps. The true bride church triumphant always has existed to come to the aid of the church militant.

·       “The members of the church triumphant--the church in Heaven--will be permitted to draw near to he members of the church militant, to aid them in their necessity. {The Southern Watchman, September 8, 1903 - Power from Above.}

·       The reception of the Holy Spirit by Christ’s Bride, the disciples, constituted the seal of the Man in Linen, Ezekiel 9. The home churches they organized, were the True Jerusalem as opposed to the apostate Jerusalem Temple. So they were sealed in TRUE JERUSALEM and told that whomever they bound (sealed) would be bound (sealed) in heaven. The THIRD ANGEL is faithful servants of God who do the same work today.

·       The ten virgins linger near the bride’s house and NOT AT IT.

Matthew 25 says all those virgins slumbered and slept. It is the voice of the bridegroom and the bride that awakens the ten virgins. According to Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament, on the word virgin in Isaiah 62:1-5, the VIRGIN BRIDE that is married is a strictly pure (bathulah) virgin, whereas the ten virgins are considered as concubines.

B.  From The Great Controversy, p. 427. This shows a distinction between the bride and the other people of the church:

The coming of Christ as our high priest to the most holy place, for the cleansing of the sanctuary, brought to view in Daniel 8:14; the coming of the Son of man to the Ancient of Days, as presented in Daniel 7:13; and the coming of the Lord to His temple, foretold by Malachi, are descriptions of the same event; and this is also represented by the coming of the bridegroom to the marriage, described by Christ in the parable of the ten virgins, of Matthew 25.

Clearly, then, the bride represents the Holy City, and the [TEN] virgins that go out to meet the bridegroom are a symbol of the church. In the Revelation the people of God are said to be the guests at the marriage supper. Revelation 19:9. If guests, they cannot be represented also as the bride. Christ, as stated by the prophet Daniel, will receive from the Ancient of Days in heaven, "dominion, and glory, and a kingdom;" He will receive the New Jerusalem, the capital of His kingdom, "prepared as a bride adorned for her husband." Daniel 7:14; Revelation 21:2. Having received the kingdom, He will come in His glory, as King of kings and Lord of lords, for the redemption of His people, who are to "sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob," at His table in His kingdom (Matthew 8:11; Luke 22:30), to partake of the marriage supper of the Lamb.”  The Great Controversy, p. 427.

 Revelation 3:10-12 identifies the NEW JERUSALEM as Philadelphia. This is further proof that Philadelphia is the bride of Christ. The guests at the wedding are all others—the great multitude.

In Revelation 3:10-12, it is Philadelphia, the bride, who gets the new name, the New Jerusalem. She is represented as the CAPITAL of His Kingdom. On earth, she represents the Holy City of Zion, the church in heaven, Hebrews, 12:22, 23. She is the True Reformers, who will bear the banner of the third angel’s message, and whose names are REGISTERED (WRITTEN) in heaven.


Characteristics of True Reformers.—“Here are given the characteristics of those who shall be reformers, who will bear the banner of the third angel's message, those who avow themselves God's commandment-keeping people, and who honor God, and are earnestly engaged, in the sight of all the universe, in building up the old waste places. Who is it that calls them, The repairers 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.


Conclusions:


God has Regenerated the Bride of all ages to be His representatives on earth; to prove that she and He would be faithful during the onslaught of Satan’s state of the art deceptions never developed to the extent they attain at the end-time. Otherwise, Satan could and would protest that if he had access to all God’s people at the end time—from all generations, he could win them over to his side. Who could deny this aspect of the Great Controversy between Christ and Satan. As well, Christ subjects Himself to the same arsenal of Satan’s temptations THROUGH HIS BRIDE, HIS REPRESENTATIVE ON EARTH, in order to prove that His Holy Spirit indwelling His Bride can and does overcome Satan’s most developed deceptions and temptations at the end-time. In principle, that was achieved at the cross, but that there can be no question, no controversy, no gainsaying by Satan, Christ goes beyond the cross to remove any possible doubts as to His victory on the cross in the eyes of the faithful angels and all of His faithful subjects. What a wonderful God we serve! Thank you Lord Jesus for all your great sacrifices for we who are not worthy of anything but eternal death without your love and redemptive act for us.


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

ADDENDUM: Some have trouble seeing the need of, and understanding new light to God’s people. They think that we have all the light we need and can settle back on our lees. That is totally contrary to the truth as the following statements reveal. We are to be continually learning new truth that builds on the old. Some have had trouble with the Godhead. The same ones have had more trouble with the Principle of Regeneration, when both are so plain and necessary to the rational solvency of many important issues that God would have us understand so as to engender faith by answering heretofore riddles. For example, many Ellen G. White hate sites on the Internet use her “food for worms” statement to render her as being a false prophet. The Principle of Regeneration answers to that charge. As well, the Principle of Regeneration solves the riddle as to how members of the original church of Philadelphia can go through the hour of temptation that is to come upon the entire world, and function as leaders in the Temple, when Ellen White says that only the 144,000 who are translated without seeing death, go into the Temple on Mt. Zion.


New Light


The special light given to John which was expressed in the seven thunders was a delineation of events which would transpire under the first and second angels' messages. It was not best for the people to know these things, for their faith must necessarily be tested. In the order of God most wonderful and advanced truths would be proclaimed. The first and second angels' messages were to be proclaimed, but no further light was to be revealed before these messages had done their specific work. This is represented by the angel standing with one foot on the sea, proclaiming with a most solemn oath that time should be no longer. {7BC 971.6}

 

It is through the mighty agency of the Holy Spirit that the government of Satan is to be subdued and subjected. It is the Holy Spirit that convinces of sin, and expels it from the soul by the consent of the human agent. The mind is then brought under a new law, and that law is the royal law of liberty. Jesus came to break the shackles of sin-slavery from the soul; for sin can triumph only when the liberty of the soul is extinguished. Jesus reached to the very depth of human woe and misery, and His love attracts man to Himself. Through the agency of the Holy Spirit, He lifts the mind up from its degradation, and fastens it upon the eternal reality. Through the merits of Christ man may be able to exercise the noblest powers of his being, and expel sin from his soul. . . . {TDG 124.1} 


     As we walk in the commandments of God, we follow on in the way cast up for the ransomed of the Lord to walk in. The faithful of all ages have walked in this path, and they have shone as lights in the world. In this age the light transmitted from them has been shining with increased brightness upon the path of those who are walking in darkness. Some have received the truth, believed and obeyed it. The light of the third angel's message has penetrated into many a darkened mind. The light of the wisdom, the goodness, the mercy, and love of God has been shining forth through His holy Word. We are not in the place where our fathers were. Advanced light is shining upon us in these last days. We cannot be accepted of God; we cannot honor Him by rendering the same service, doing the same work that our fathers did. {TDG 124.2} 


     In order to be accounted guiltless before God, we must be as faithful in our time in following and obeying our light, as they were faithful in following and obeying the light that shone upon them. Of every individual member of His church, our heavenly Father requires faith and fruits according to the grace and light given. God cannot accept less. Every soul should place himself where the light will shine upon him. He should treasure every ray, that he may brighten and bless the souls of others with the Heaven-sent radiance.—E. G. White, Review and Herald, April 25, 1893. {This Day With God} 124.3}

 

     “Here is a precious promise; the purposes and plans of God are to be opened to his disciples. Coming events, of solemn character, are opening before us, and God would not have any one of us think that in these last days there is no more that we need to know. This is a continual snare of Satan. He would have us meet coming events without that special preparation which is essential to guide them through every difficulty. He would have all stumbling their way along in ignorance, making self-conceit, self-esteem, self-confidence, take the place of true knowledge. The more satisfied any one is with himself, and his present knowledge, the less earnestly and humbly will he seek to be guided into all truth. The less of the Holy Spirit of God he has, the more self-satisfied and complacent he will feel. He will not search earnestly and with the deepest interest to know more truth. But unless he keeps pace with the Leader, who is guiding into all truth, he will be left behind, belated, blinded, confused, because he is not walking in the light. {PC 56.2}


     All who follow Christ will walk in the light as He is in the light. They will not then regard light with indifference, nor will they misapply the light, or stumble over it as did the Jews. {PC 56.3}


The Holy Spirit gift to the church instructs us that we are to continually receive increasing knowledge of truth that engenders purity, goodness and faith which works by love purifying the soul that His bride may be presented faultless, BLAMELESS (Rev. 14:1-4) BEFORE THE THRONE OF DIVINE GLORY. WHAT NEW LIGHT HAS BEEN CONTINUALLY ISSUING FROM THE SDA CHURCH SINCE THE DEATH OF ELLEN G. WHITE? If you know of any, send it to me and I will publish it. The only new thing coming from that church that I know of is apostasy.


The word of life is that by which the Christian is to live. From this word we are to receive a continually increasing knowledge of truth. From it we are to gain light, purity, goodness, and a faith which works by love and purifies the soul. It is given us that we may be redeemed and presented faultless before the throne of divine glory. Wondrous victory, gained by Christ in man’s behalf!—E. G. White, Letter 60, April 21, 1900, to a young man seeking Ellen White’s counsel.


Truth ever unfolding Truth ever expanding

 

 God intends that, even in this life, truth shall be ever unfolding to His people”. .... “Whenever the people of God are growing in grace, they will be constantly obtaining a clearer understanding of His Word. They will discern new light and beauty in its sacred truths. This has been true in the history of the church in all ages, and thus it will continue to the end.” Gospel Workers, page 297.

 

God designs that the message of redemption shall come to His people as the latter rain; for they are fast losing their connection with God. They are trusting in men, and glorifying men, and their strength is proportionate to the strength of their dependence. We are to know more than we know at the present time. We are to comprehend the deep things of God. There are themes to be dwelt upon which are worthy of more than a passing notice. Angels have desired to look into the truths which are revealed to those who are searching God’s Word with contrite hearts. Those who will devote their powers to the study of God’s Word, and especially to the prophecies referring to these last days, will be rewarded by the discovery of important truths. The last book of the New Testament Scriptures is full of truths that need to be understood. Satan has blinded the eyes of men, and they have been glad of any excuse for not studying this book. But here Christ has declared through His servant John what shall be in the last days.” {ST April 18, 1900, par. 9}
