136. My Vision on - Why Seventh-day Adventists Reject Warnings of

Their Impending Ezekiel 9 Doom


July 14, 2017

In the night season of July 14, 2017, I was given the following account as to why professing Seventh-day Adventists reject any and all warnings of their impending Ezekiel 9 doom, and was instructed to give this vision to the faithful flock who will accept the truth on this serious issue. I was shown the following factors which I will list and then elaborate on.

1.    My angel stressed the fact that apostate Israel’s example regarding the warnings of its prophets, was a prefigure of modern-day spiritual Israel’s (SDA) response to warnings of its impending doom.

2.    Jewish leaders proved their unwillingness to admit their apostasy when they rejected their prophets and killed some of the most important of them.

3.    SDA leaders outright reject the fact that the church is in apostasy. They say there is apostasy in the church, but that the church is not in apostasy.

4.    Ellen White said that Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled upon the SDA church militant.

5.    SDA leaders and members reject Ellen White’s prophesy that Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled beginning at His Church, His Sanctuary, those who have been privileged with great light, the House of Jacob. Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 2ll. Why is this?

6.    Satan’s use of the apostate Shepherd’s Rod organization to deceive Adventists concerning Ezekiel 9.

7.    God needs the church; He is stuck with Laodicea. He needs Laodiceans to give the final gospel to the world.


The Prime Reason God’s Once “Chosen” SDA’s Won’t Hear and Accept the Ezekiel 9 Warning Message


1.    My angel stressed the fact that apostate Israel’s example regarding the warnings of its prophets, was a prefigure of modern-day spiritual Israel’s (SDA) response to warnings of its impending doom.

·       In The Great Controversy, p. 25, Ellen White states that the events of the destruction of Jerusalem serve as a PREFIGURE for the terrors of the last great day, BEGINNING at His Sanctuary, the church, those privileged with great light, the House of Jacob, also see Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 211.

·       Jewish leaders were so sure that God was still with them, that at the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, Josephus, an eye-witness historian, says that the leaders told the Jews that the Romans would never penetrate the 24ft. thick gate to the city, because God would protect them. So it will be at the Ezekiel 9 destruction of the SDA church. SDA leaders will tell their members to come to the churches for God will protect them there, and they will be slaughtered without mercy, Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 211.

2.    Jewish leaders proved their unwillingness to admit their apostasy when they rejected their prophets and killed some of the most important of them.

·       Israel rejected the warnings of her prophets and killed many of them. Isaiah accurately prophesied the coming of the Messiah and look what happened to him. He was put into a hollowed-out log and was sawn in two. Jeremiah was thrown in a dungeon.

·       Though Ellen White is still “used” as a figurehead to prove that the SDA church is the true church because it has the gift of prophecy via Ellen G. White, she has largely been rejected by the majority of the church members and relegated to the position of being a goodly counselor for her day. Clearly, the church has rejected most of the important counsel of Ellen G. White, especially her prophesying that the SDA church militant (wheat and tare co-ed church) would refuse the conditions, so that God’s promises WOULD NOT be fulfilled to that church. Spirit of Prophecy, Book 4, pp. 199, 200, not to be confused with Testimonies, Vol. 4. Spirit of Prophecy, Book 4, was the 1884 version of The Great Controversy.

3.    SDA leaders outright reject the fact that the church is in apostasy.

·       In the 1980’s and 90’s, Ron Spear of Hope International ministries, and the Standish brothers of Harland Institute, were teaching that the church was in apostasy. In response the church wrote the book cited below, and said that there is apostasy in the church, but that the church is not in apostasy. That was/is a lie. The church is in apostasy, and it is the leaders who brought the apostasy into the church. However, even if there was merely apostasy in the church, the church would be corporately responsible for that apostasy, just as the entire camp of Israel was held responsible for Achan’s apostasy.

·       In 1992, the SDA church published a book entitled: Issues: The Seventh-day Adventist Church and Certain Private Ministries, published in 1992 by the North American Division. In this book, SDA leaders told Hope International led by Ron Spear, and Dr.’s Colin and Russell Standish of Hartland Institute, in no uncertain terms, that if they continued to teach that the church was in apostasy, that they would be “DEALT WITH,” meaning expelled from the church organization. These ministries backed down because they were never disfranchised as members of the SDA church.

4.    Ellen White said that Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled upon the SDA church militant.

·       The following statement is part of the chapter that begins on page 207 of Testimonies, Vol. 5, and begins by quoting Ezekiel 9:

·       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.

·       Ezekiel 9 was first fulfilled in A.D. 70, in the destruction of Jerusalem because of its apostasy. It could not have been fulfilled prior to that because God gave Israel 490 years (Dan. 9) of probation which ended in A. D. 34, commensurate with the stoning of Stephen.

·       Why would Ezekiel 9 be literally fulfilled upon a church that is not in apostasy? Why do SDA leaders and members deny this prophesy by Ellen G. White?

5.    SDA leaders and members reject Ellen White’s prophesy that Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled beginning at His Church, His Sanctuary, those who have been privileged with great light, the House of Jacob. Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 2ll. Why is this?

·       In Ellen White’s Testimonies, Vol. 5, 211 statement, we find clues as to why SDA leaders and members reject Ellen White’s prophesy that Ezekiel 9 will literally BEGIN at His Sanctuary, His Church, those who have been privileged with great light, the House of Jacob. Below are some of the reasons:

·       The ancient men meaning the leaders, betrayed sacred trust. God’s Spirit cannot be with those who betray sacred trust, so they make foolish decisions.

·       Ellen White indicts the leaders with manifest UNBELIEF. How can God guide their decisions when they are in unbelief?

·       The leaders believe and teach the members that: “The Lord will not do good, neither will He do evil. He is too merciful to visit His people in judgment.” Why would they come to that conclusion when they have the stark historical evidence of what God permitted to happen to His first “chosen people?”

·       “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."

·       See Isaiah 56:10-12 for the rest of the “dumb-dog” data direct from God’s Word.

·       The leaders and laity alike believe that Laodicea is God’s final church, and that any “others” would constitute another church, an eighth church. Is that true in light of the following statement by Ellen White?

·       "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.

·       According to the above statement, “others” who are THEN CHOSEN, after a church has proved unfaithful to the work of the Lord, are not considered as an eighth church. They merely contend for the gospel once committed to the saints. 1 Timothy 1:11.

·       Any new movement, new organization, however, would be another church which Christ referred to as the Synagogue of Satan. When the Jewish church apostatized, that is what Christ termed the Temple church organization. Ellen White prophesied such a new organization, new movement, in Selected Messages, Bk. 1, pp. 204-205. The statement perfectly fulfills the OMEGA HERESY which she said would surely follow the omega. SDA leaders and members do not believe that statement has been fulfilled when evidence abounds to the contrary.

·       It is positively mind blowing to realize that the prophetess of the Seventh-day Adventist church has prophesied that Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled beginning at that church, with men, maidens and little children slaughtered without mercy, and they don’t believe their prophetess!

6.    Satan’s use of the apostate Shepherd’s Rod organization to deceive Adventists concerning Ezekiel 9.

·       One of Satan’s most clever devices employed to deceive professing Seventh-day Adventists is the apostate Shepherd’s Rod movement. The false prophet of that movement, Victor Houteff, wrongly prophesied the coming of Christ in the 1950’s, and many of his followers continued to believe him anyway, while his own wife later denounced his teachings. But Satan mixes truth with error, and one of the truths that the Rod teaches is Ezekiel 9. So Adventists associate ANY teaching on Ezekiel 9 with the apostasy of the Shepherd’s Rod, and they won’t listen to anything to do with it, even when it comes from Ellen White and God Almighty in Ezekiel 9.

·       When I began my warning message in the 1980’s, God showed me it was my duty to warn Seventh-day Adventists of their impending Ezekiel 9 doom. I was immediately branded as a Shepherd’s Rod by members of my own family. And members of my wife’s family did the same. Her brother, a Ph.D., was visiting us not long ago, and I was telling them about Ellen White’s quotes on Ezekiel 9, and his wife popped off saying: “Yes, and you are going to do the killing! Needless to say I was taken aback, but by God’s grace I calmly replied: No true Christian will kill anyone.” My own daughter has accused me of ties with the Rod, when I have never, ever, had anything to do with them. I have long exposed their errors on my Website. But I remind you that we are dealing with the Synagogue of Satan, and we may expect such misrepresentation.

7.    God needs the church; He is stuck with Laodicea. He needs Laodiceans to give the final gospel to the world. God showed me that this is the general sentiment of the leaders and the members of the church. But this foolish sentiment is contrary to everything Ellen White states in the following statements. God has a reserve army that most SDA’s know nothing of:

·       "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.

·       Repeated for emphasis: “God is not ‘worshipped with men’s hands, as though He needed any thing’ Acts 17:25.” God has other reserves in His arsenal, to wit:

·       "A 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 light in the world.'" The darker the night, the more brilliantly will they shine." E.G. White, Evangelism,707, and Prophets and Kings, pp. 188, 189.

·       “Those whom Christ commends in the judgment may have known little of theology, but they have cherished His principles. Through the influence of the divine Spirit they have been a blessing to those about them. Even among the heathen are those who have cherished the spirit of kindness; before the words of life had fallen upon their ears, they have befriended the missionaries, even ministering to them at the peril of their own lives. Among the heathen are those who worship God ignorantly, those to whom the light is never brought by human instrumentality, yet they will not perish. Though ignorant of the written law of God, they have heard His voice speaking to them in nature, and have done the things that the law required. Their works are evidence that the Holy Spirit has touched their hearts, and they are recognized as the children of God.” Desire of Ages, 638.

·       “Thus the message of the third angel will be proclaimed. As the time comes for it to be given with greatest power, the Lord will work through humble instruments, leading the minds of those who consecrate themselves to His service. The laborers will be qualified rather by the unction of His Spirit than by the training of literary institutions. Men of faith and prayer will be constrained to go forth with holy zeal, declaring the words which God gives them. The sins of Babylon will be laid open. The fearful results of enforcing the observances of the church by civil authority, the inroads of spiritualism, the stealthy but rapid progress of the papal power--all will be unmasked. By these solemn warnings the people will be stirred. Thousands upon thousands will listen who have never heard words like these. In amazement they hear the testimony that Babylon is the church, fallen because of her errors and sins, because of her rejection of the truth sent to her from heaven. As the people go to their former teachers with the eager inquiry, Are these things so? the ministers present fables, prophesy smooth things, to soothe their fears and quiet the awakened conscience. But since many refuse to be satisfied with the mere authority of men and demand a plain "Thus saith the Lord," the popular ministry, like the Pharisees of old, filled with anger as their authority is questioned, will denounce the message as of Satan and stir up the sin-loving multitudes to revile and persecute those who proclaim it.

Those whom Christ commends in the judgment may have known little of theology, but they have cherished His principles. Through the influence of the divine Spirit they have been a blessing to those about them. Even among the heathen are those who have cherished the spirit of kindness before the words of life had fallen upon their ears, they have befriended the missionaries, even ministering to them at the peril of their own lives. Among the heathen are those who worship God ignorantly, those to whom the light is never brought by human instrumentality, yet they will not perish. Though ignorant of the written law of God, they have heard His voice speaking to them in nature, and have done the things that the law required. Their works are evidence that the Holy Spirit has touched their hearts, and they are recognized as the children of God.” The Great Controversy, pp. 606-607.

·       Another reason professing Seventh-day Adventists refuse to hear the warning their prophetess made regarding Ezekiel 9 slaughter, is that they are rich, increased with goods, in need of nothing! They don’t need saving from Ezekiel 9 destruction. They are doing very well, thank you! But what will they do in the end thereof?

·       Yet other reasons for rejecting the warning messages are:

·       SDA’s have been taught the false teaching by their false prophet leaders that the bad leave the church. Were that true, Ezekiel 9 would not begin there. Also, that is not what occurred in the prefigure of Ezekiel 9. The good left the bad. That is as clear as anything in the Bible gets!

·       "I have been shown that the spirit of the world is fast leavening the church. You are following the same path as did ancient Israel. There is the same falling away from your holy calling as God's peculiar people. You are having fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Your [ecumenical] concord with unbelievers have provoked he Lord's displeasure. You know not the things that belong to your peace, and they are fast being hid from your eyes. [The very words applied to fallen Israel on page 17 of The Great Controversy] Your neglect to follow the light will place you in a more unfavorable position than the Jews upon whom Christ pronounced a woe." Testimonies, Vol. 5, pp. 75-76.

·       "Like ancient Israel, the church has dishonored her God by departing from the light, neglecting her duties, and abusing her high and exalted privilege of being peculiar and holy in character. Her members have violated their covenant to live for God and him only. They have joined with the selfish and world-loving. Pride, the love of pleasure, and sin have been cherished, and CHRIST HAS DEPARTED. His Spirit has been quenched in the church. Satan works side by side with professed Christians yet they are so destitute of spiritual discernment that they do not detect him." E.G. White, Testimonies, Vol. 2, pp. 441-442.

·       "Among the professed followers of Christ, there is the same pride, formalism, vainglory, selfishness, and OPPRESSION, that existed in the Jewish nation." E.G. White, Sketches from the Life of Paul, 251-252.

·       "God's professed people are selfish and self-caring....They are idolaters, and are worse, in the sight of God, than the heathen, graven-image worshippers who have had no knowledge of a better way." Testimonies, Vol. 2, 440-441.


The Prime Reason God’s Once “Chosen” SDA’s Won’t Hear and Accept the Ezekiel 9 Warning Message


You have now seen the fact that there are many reasons why we get very little response to God’s Ezekiel 9 warning to His people. But there is one PRIME reason, and here it is: The leaders as prophet representatives of God, prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means and MY PEOPLE LOVE TO HAVE IT SO! The members of the church love things just the way they are! They are in need of nothing!

COUNTERPART: "The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants, 'Pray not thou for this people [Jer. 7:16 and 11:14], 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.


Imagine! A condition for being sealed, saved, by the Man in linen, is sighing and crying for all the abominations, and God says “THEIR SOUL DELIGHTETH IN THEIR ABOMINATIONS.” They love to have false prophesying. They don’t love the truth. For these PRIME REASONS, God will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them in Ezekiel 9 slaughter of men, maidens and little children.


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. White,  Review and Herald, vol. 2, 308. 

 

There is a modern COUNTERPART to the ancient apostate "chosen people" of God. That modern COUNTERPART is the people who claim to be the modern "chosen people" of God, the remnant, God’s commandment-keeping people if you will.

 

It is a serious consideration that most independent ministries I know of don’t even mention Ezekiel 9. This is most serious in that Ellen White said that we have the same duty of Ezekiel the prophet to warn our brothers and sisters:

 

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.

 

God has shown me in no uncertain terms that the tests of a true independent ministry include the truth on:

·       The Godhead

·       The Ezekiel 9 Warning to His people. I do not see so-called independent ministries warning of the Ezekiel 9 literal fulfillment upon SDA’s. Why is this?

·       Separation from Omega heresy apostasy that is only going to wax stronger until Jesus comes.

·       In the historic prefigure of Ezekiel 9’s literal fulfillment, all true Christians began worshipping in home churches from A.D. 34-66, at which time they fled to Pella, 3½ years before the destruction of Jerusalem. God has shown me clearly that only those who flee the apostate church in the antitype literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 will be sealed and saved.

·       Separation Come out -- The Call to Come Out of the Hebrew Church. The preaching of the gospel of a crucified, risen, and ascended Lord was to begin at Jerusalem. Luke 24:47. On the day of Pentecost the apostles had been given "tongues like as of fire," Acts 2:3, and through this zeal of the Spirit-filled apostles thousands of the honest in heart responded to the call to come out of the new fallen Hebrew church. Among others, the great and learned apostle Paul left the Hebrew church and threw all his talent and power into preaching the gospel of a crucified, risen, and ascended Lord. "I determined," he said, "not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified." I Cor. 2:2. Sarah Elizabeth Peck, The Path to the Throne of God, p. 207. Sarah Peck was a close friend and confident of Ellen White.

·       Ezekiel 9 separation "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}

·       In the prefigure fulfillment of Ezekiel 9, all true Christians began separating from sin and sinners from A.D. 34-66. It is impossible to be joined to an apostate church and at the same time be separated from sinners.

·       "It is impossible for you to unite with those who are corrupt, and still remain pure.  'What fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? and what concord hath Christ with Belial?'  God and Christ and the heavenly host would have man know that if he unites with the corrupt, he will become corrupt." E. G. White, Review and Herald, January 2, 1900 (Vol 4, p 137).

Ellen White did not need to separate because she kept OPEN SIN corruption out of the church. Recall how she MET the Alpha Heresy.
