122. Does the Professing SDA Church Teach All the Necessary Truth?


Feb. 8, 2017

Mat 23:15  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Mat 23:21   And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. 

Mat 23:22   And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

 

Zec 2:7   Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. 

Zec 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.


 

Walter Veith has stated that the church has all the necessary teachings and doctrines required for salvation. If the SDA church is teaching a spurious doctrine that sweeps away the entire Christian economy, IT IS NOT TEACHING ALL THE TRUTH THAT IS NECESSARY FOR SALVATION. It is the objective of this document to prove that the new movement, new organization SDA “church,” is teaching such a doctrine. Walter Veith also refers to the SDA church as the apple of God’s eye. God’s Word says that Zion is the apple of His eye. Zion is the bride, the 144,000 Isaiah 62:1-5. Ellen White says that the church members are GUESTS at the wedding, and if GUESTS, they cannot also be the bride. The Great Controversy, pp. 426, 427. Also, in Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 405, 406, it is the voice of the bride (Zion/Sion) that awakens the 10 virgins. So Walter Veith is totally out of place referring to the SDA new movement, new organization “church” that has “removed God,” (1SM 204-205) as the apple of God’s eye, as are all the leaders of the new movement, new organization “church.” I say “church” because only the presence of God can constitute a church:

 

"God has a church. It is not the great cathedral, (or the super mega church), neither is it the national establishment, neither is it the various denominations; it is the people who love God and keep His commandments. 'Where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.' Where Christ is even among the humble few, THIS IS CHRIST'S CHURCH, for the presence of the High and Holy One who inhabiteth eternity can alone constitute a church." The Upward Look, p. 315.

 

During the night hours of February 8, 2017, the Lord confirmed to me once again how and why the Trinity Doctrine sweeps away the entire Christian economy and how important it is for His people to be apprised of this serious issue. The key to understanding this horror of all abominations is the realization that even if the church should teach some truth, it is leading souls to hell the world over because of the implications of the Trinity Doctrine that result in the Sanctuary GONE, the Atonement GONE, while the ministering brethren look on but don’t seem to understand what they have done.

 

The upshot of the omega heresy committed by the professing SDA church, is that the spiritualistic theories regarding the personality of God [the Godhead], followed to their logical conclusion, sweep away the whole Christian economy, NO MATTER WHAT THE CHURCH PROFESSES TO BELIEVE. This serious condition of the church in the omega heresy, is the result of Satan’s state of the art deception in getting SDA leaders to commit unpardonable apostasy because of their lack of knowledge, while there is absolutely no excuse for any such lack, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE LACK INVOLVES A REJECTION OF PAST KNOWLEDGE. It is the rejection of knowledge that is unpardonable.

 

Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

 

Seventh-day Adventists were especially blessed of God by possessing the gift of prophecy in their midst’s. It is because of rejection of that gift that vital knowledge regarding the personality of God and the Godhead was ignored and disobeyed by SDA leaders in 1980. This is critical beyond words, so I repeat: There was absolutely no excuse on the part of GC leaders and laity in 1980, for the ignorance that led them to adopt the CENTRAL DOCTRINE OF ROME, that in essence sweeps away the entire Christian economy! But this is precisely what transpired.

 

The Trinity Doctrine is a spiritualistic theory about the personality of God and Christ, formed by so-called ancient “church fathers.” A revelation of the truth about their error makes them appear as very foolish virgin “christians,” who were nigh totally void of spiritual discernment. How so? It should have been a very blatant, obvious deduction to make that if there were three co-equal, co-eternal persons to the Godhead, as the Trinity Doctrine teaches, there would have to be four after God came in the likeness of sinful flesh being combined with humanity forever. No element of humanity existed amongst the Godhead prior to the Incarnation. After the Incarnation, a new member to the Godhead accrued—the God/Man, fully God and fully human.

 

There were only TWO members to the Godhead before the Incarnation, the Father and His Son. After Christ’s victory on the Cross, He was ADOPTED into the Godhead in heaven:

 

 "By His life and His death, Christ has achieved even more than recovery from the ruin wrought through sin. It was Satan's purpose to bring about an eternal separation between God and man but in Christ we become more closely united to God than if we had never fallen. 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.' [John 3:16]. 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.' God has adopted human nature in the person of His Son, and has carried the same into the highest heaven. It is the 'Son of man' who shares the throne of the universe. It is the 'Son of man' whose name shall be called, 'Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the prince of Peace.' [Isa. 9:6]. The I Am is the Daysman between God and humanity, laying His hand upon both. HE who is 'holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,' is not ashamed to call us brethren. [Heb. 7:26 2:11.] In Christ the family of earth and the family of heaven are bound together. Christ glorified is our brother. Heaven is enshrined in humanity, and humanity is enfolded in the bosom of Infinite love." The Desire of Ages, 25.

 

There was no “Daysman” between God and humanity BEFORE the Incarnation. This involves a new element—a different PERSON, ANOTHER PERSON accruing to the Godhead. Does the Bible support this fact? Yes it does. Does the Spirit of Prophecy support this fact? Yes indeed:

 

Jesus Speaking With Nocodemus While He (Jesus) was on Earth

 

"And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven." John 3:13

 

Jesus is telling Nicodemus that the Son of Man is in heaven, while He was speaking to Nicodemus personally while on earth. There was another person in heaven. Now from Ellen White:

 

"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.

 

Clearly, the personality of Christ’s humanity was an independent PERSON from His Holy Spirit HIMSELF. It was Christ’s Holy Spirit HIMSELF that was in heaven when Jesus told Nicodemus that the Son of Man was in heaven, whilst He (Jesus) was speaking face to face with Nicodemus when He was on earth. It is very clear from the following statement that the Holy Spirit is the soul of Christ’s DIVINE NATURE, which is independent of His human nature PERSONality”

 

"Christ declared that after his ascension, he would send to his church, as his crowning gift, the Comforter, who was to take his place. This Comforter is the Holy Spirit,--the soul of his life, the efficacy of his church, the light and life of the world. With his Spirit Christ sends a reconciling influence and a power that takes away sin.

In the gift of the Spirit, Jesus gave to man the highest good that heaven could bestow....

The Spirit was given as a regenerating agency, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail....

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 the church." E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, May 19, 1904, vol. 5, p. 42.

 

The Incarnation produced another INDEPENDENT PERSON to the Godhead—the humanity of the Son of Man. This is when the Godhead became THREE PERSONS. What are the serious implications? To teach, as does the Trinity Doctrine, that there were three persons eternally, totally voids the heavenly Sanctuary/Atonement whereby a THIRD PERSON was added to the Godhead at the Incarnation. Thus, as in the Alpha heresy, the Sanctuary is rendered as GONE! The Atonement is rendered as GONE! How? Why? By the teaching that there were three co-eternal persons ALREADY, BEFORE the Incarnation act that produced a THIRD PERSON, which act was the Incarnation Sanctuary/Atonement sacrifice.

 

"The incarnation of Christ, typified in the sacrificial service of Israel, and symbolized in all their devotions, is a glorious mystery. In His only begotten Son, God was made manifest to the world. The Son of God laid aside His glory, and clothed Himself with humanity. He became the meek and lowly Jesus. For the sake of sinful men He became poor, that they through His poverty might be made rich." {BEcho, February 20, 1899 par. 1}

 

As the worker studies the life of Christ, and the character of His mission is dwelt upon, each fresh search will reveal something more deeply interesting than has yet been unfolded. The subject is inexhaustible. The study of the incarnation of Christ, His atoning sacrifice and mediatorial work, will employ the mind of the diligent student as long as time shall last.”--Gospel Workers, p. 251. {7ABC 444.1}

 

Incarnation "Dwell More on the Incarnation and Atonement.--If Christ is all and in all to every one of us, why are not His Incarnation and His atoning sacrifice dwelt upon more in the churches? Why are not hearts and tongues employed in the Redeemer's praise? This will be the employment of the powers of the redeemed through the ceaseless ages of eternity." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Book 3, p. 187.

 

"No one can search the Scriptures in the spirit of Christ without being rewarded. When man is willing to be instructed as a little child, when he submits wholly to God, he will find the truth in His word. If men would be obedient, they would understand the plan of God's government. The heavenly world would open its chambers of grace and glory for exploration. Human beings would be altogether different from what they now are, for by exploring the mines of truth men would be ennobled. The mystery of redemption, THE INCARNATION OF CHRIST, His ATONING SACRIFICE, would not be as they are now, vague in our minds. They would be not only better understood, but altogether more highly appreciated."  E.G. White, Christ's Object Lessons, p. 114. Vol. 7a, p. 441.

 

"He (Christ) suffered the death which was ours, that we might receive the life which WAS His." Desire of Ages, p. 25 1 Cor. 11:24-265, cf. John 6:53, 54, Titus 3:5, 6.

 

The incarnation of Christ was an act of self-sacrifice; His life was one of continual self-denial. The highest glory of the love of God to man was manifested in the sacrifice of His only-begotten Son, who was the express image of His person. This is the great mystery of godliness. It is the privilege and the duty of every professed follower of Christ to have the mind of Christ. Without self-denial and cross bearing we cannot be His disciples.” {2SM 185.2}

 

A similar transgression occurred in the alpha heresy. Such illustrious leaders as John Harvey Kellogg, Alonzo T. Jones, and E. J. Waggoner, were unnecessarily deceived by Satan into believing Kellogg’s theory

 

Walter Veith claims that the professing SDA church is the apple of God’s eye and that all the truth by way of necessary doctrines are still found within the church no matter what it has done or will do—no matter how bad it gets by way of apostasy. That is a high claim to make considering that Ellen White prophesied that God would be removed from the SDA church that would form a new movement, new organization, that would remove doctrines that stand as THE pillars of our faith. Any awake Adventist knows that every specification of the following statement has been true since 1980.

 

Why do I say 1980? Because it was at the World General Conference Session in that year that the church voted to adopt the Trinity Doctrine, which removes the Sanctuary truth and the very Atonement sacrifice of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. That satanic doctrine which Rome boasts as its central doctrine, removes the entire Christian economy.

 

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

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

 

Godhead as a pillar doctrine -- Personality of God and of Christ Landmarks: "Those who seek to remove the old landmarks are not holding fast they are not remembering how they have received and heard. Those who try to bring in theories that would remove the pillars of our faith concerning the sanctuary or concerning the personality of God or of Christ, are working as blind men. They are seeking to bring in uncertainties and to set the people of God adrift without an anchor." {MR760 9.5}

 

"You are not definitely clear on the personality of God, which is everything to us as a people. You have virtually destroyed the Lord God Himself." EGW letter 300 1903. [Addressed to Dr. Kellogg]. SDA leaders still do not understand how Kellogg’s teachings did away with the Sanctuary and the Atonement. Ask them!

 

The following pillar, landmark SDA doctrines are thus totally annulled by the Trinity Doctrine, which effectually sweeps away the entire Christian economy:

 

·       The Testator’s Everlasting Covenant. Heb. 9:16, 17.

·       The Heavenly Sanctuary Service where the Atonement first began.

·       The Heavenly Atonement which first took place in the Heavenly Sanctuary.

·       The Investigative Judgment that is on-going after the Atonement.

·       The Human Nature of Christ—God coming in the likeness of sinful flesh. Ellen White said the humanity of Christ means everything to us.

·       The Everlasting Gospel made possible by the Incarnation of the Son of God.

·       The promise of eternal life to all who believe and buy gold tried in the fire—faith that works by love for Christ and reception of His Holy Spirit Grace as pardon and power for obedience. Rom. 1:5.

 

Alpha and Omega Heresy: "I have been instructed by the heavenly messenger that some of the reasoning in the book Living Temple is unsound, and that this reasoning would lead astray the minds of those who are not thoroughly established on the foundation principles of present truth. It introduces that which is nought but speculation in regard to the personality of God and where His presence is [the Godhead]. No one on this earth has a right to speculate on this question. The more fanciful theories are discussed, the less men will know of God and of the truth that sanctifies the soul." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Bk. 1. 1, 201-202.

 

The sacrifice of Christ as an atonement for sin is the great truth around which all other truths cluster. In order to be rightly understood and appreciated, every truth in the word of God, from Genesis to Revelation, must be studied in the light that streams from the cross of Calvary. I present before you the great, grand monument of mercy and regeneration, salvation and redemption,--the Son of God uplifted on the cross. This is to be the foundation of every discourse given by our ministers.” Gospel Workers, 315.

 

"The spiritualistic theories regarding the personality of God [the Godhead], followed to their logical conclusion, sweep away the whole Christian economy. They estimate as nothing the light that Christ came from heaven to give John to give to His people. They teach that the scenes just before us are not of sufficient importance to be given special attention. They make of no effect the truth of heavenly origin, and rob the people of God of their past experience, giving them instead a false science." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Bk.1, p. 204.

 

If the atonement is the great truth AROUND WHICH ALL OTHER TRUTHS CLUSTER, a misapplication of this truth sweeps away the entire Christian economy.

 

 "The darkness rolled away from the Saviour and from the Cross. Christ bowed His head and died. In His Incarnation He had reached the prescribed limit as a sacrifice, but not as a redeemer." E.G. White Manuscript Releases Volume Twelve, p. 409.

 

The Parallel Between the Alpha and Omega Heresies

 

According to the Everlasting Covenant (The Testator’s Will and Testament—Covenant), the Testator must die to meet the penalty of the wages of sin which are eternal death. There are some very important considerations here:

 ·       Divinity Cannot die as we reckon death.

·       Ellen White said that Divinity did not die on the cross.

·       The Testator was the Divinity of the Son of God. Something about the Testator must die.

·       The humanity of Christ was not present at the establishment of the Testator’s Everlasting Covenant.

·       The Testator Divine Nature of Christ, His Holy Spirit Himself, “died” FOREVER AFTER, to His first estate of being DIVINE ONLY, HOLY SPIRIT ONLY, to become independently combined with humanity forever.

·       The humanity of Christ could not atone for sin.

·       In His INCARNATION ALONE, the Testator reached the prescribed limit as a sacrifice. The ONLY prescribed limit in the Testator’s Covenant is “death.” Something about the Incarnation constituted DEATH, and that “something” was His death to being DIVINE ONLY, AND TO BECOME HUMAN FOREVER.


THE PARALLEL FACTORS:

·       The Alpha involved spurious theories relative to the personality of Christ and God and their shared ONE ETERNAL HOLY SPIRIT, which is what constitutes them as ONE GOD.

·       The Omega involves spurious theories relative to the personality of Christ and God.

·       The Alpha heresy provided the gift of the Holy Spirit as residing in everyone WITHOUT THE INCARNATION SACRIFICE.

·       The Omega heresy voids the need of the Sanctuary/Atonement Incarnation sacrifice to produce a THIRD PERSON to the Godhead, teaching that a THIRD PERSON was already part of the Godhead for eternity.

·       It is the blasphemy of all blasphemies to teach that three persons accrued to the Godhead WITHOUT THE INCARNATION SACRIFICE. Thus, the entire Christian economy is swept away.

·       In both the Alpha and Omega heresies, the Sanctuary/Atonement is rendered as GONE.

·       The ministering brethren in the times of both—the Alpha and Omega, did not understand the implications of what they were witnessing/doing.

 

Heb 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

Heb 9:17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

               

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

 

The Alpha heresy presented by John H. Kellogg, taught that the Holy Spirit of God was in every created thing. That was/is pantheism. All the ministering brethren were looking on, watching what was being done, but they did not possess the spiritual discernment to understand the implications of Kellogg’s spurious teaching on the presence and personality of the Godhead. The serious implications were/are:

 

·       The foundation of our faith, which was established by so much prayer, such earnest searching of the Scriptures, was being taken down, pillar by pillar.

·       Our faith was to have nothing to rest upon--the sanctuary was gone, the atonement was gone."

 

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

 

The above is also an example of Calvinism--believing one is chosen and destined to be saved without being truly converted; without true repentance and confession of sin, without regard to his past life of sin and rebellion, without “a broken on the Rock” heart and contrition of soul. This is a form of Calvinistic saved by grace only, regardless of any proper choice on the part of the sinner (predestination).

 

Conclusions

 

·       The Trinity Doctrine of and by itself is sufficient to “remove God” from the new movement, new organization.

·       When SDA leaders and/or pseudo independent ministries like Walter Veith’s cross land and sea to make converts to a church that is teaching antichrist error on the most fundamental pillar, landmark doctrine of Christianity, they are making them twice the child of hell.

·       There is no excuse for the “bright lights” of the church not to discern the truth about the Godhead.

·       The Trinity Doctrine is the worst abomination for which we are to sigh and cry because it involves the “highest good, crowning gift that heaven can bestow”—the gift of the Divine Nature Holy Spirit of the Son of God, by which we receive power to overcome and eternal life.

·       It is thus a most devious and deceptive teaching by Walter Veith that the church is teaching all the true doctrines, when the correct teaching of the most fundamental pillar, landmark doctrines is absent from the new movement SDA church, and with it the Sanctuary truth, the truth about the human nature of Christ, the Atonement and in effect the entire Christian economy.

·       Even if the SDA apostate new movement does mix some truth with error, as most fallen churches do, it will still lead its converts to hell via its abominable, antichrist Trinity Doctrine, and corporate responsibility for all its other abominations.

·       An omega of heresies new movement, new organization that has removed God and pillar, landmark doctrines, is surely not the apple of God’s eye.


Many professing Seventh-day Adventists are in for a very disappointing surprise. Beware!
