159. My Vision on Why Ellen White Would be Forced to Leave

The SDA Church Today

Part 1 & 2

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Below are a sampling of the statements I addressed when supplicating the Lord for His answers to the above questions.

 

Worse than Babylon "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, 440-442.

 

Testimonies, Vol. 2, pp. 440-442, were written in 1870, as you can see in the flyleaf of the book. The church was first referred to by Ellen White as Laodicean, in 1852.

 

The same disobedience and failure which were seen in the Jewish church have characterized in a greater degree the people who have had this great light from heaven in the last messages of warning.” Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 456.

 

History repeats itself. “The thing that has been, it is that which shall be: and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” (Ecc. 1:9). In other words, The important movements of the present have their parallel in those of the past.” (G.C. 343).

 

That the Advent Movement is an important movement of the present no one can deny and it has its parallel in the history of Ancient Israel:

 

The remnant church is called to go through an experience similar to that of the Jews.” (1 SM, 387).

 

Not one of us can afford to ignore the following warnings:

                            

The trials of the children of Israel, and their attitude just before the first coming of Christ, have been presented before me, again and again, to ILLUSTRATE the position of the people of God in their experience before the second coming of Christ—how the enemy sought every occasion to take control of the minds of the Jews, and today he is seeking to blind the minds of God’s servants, that they may not be able to discern the Precious Truth.” (1 SM, 406; 2 Cor 4:4). The “precious truth” mentioned here is the light sent to the Seventh-day Adventists in 1888. 

"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 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.

 

Worse than Babylon -- "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, 440-442.

The “precious truth” mentioned here is the light sent to the Seventh-day Adventists in 1888. 

 

"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 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.

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.

 

Then I was pointed back to the years 1843 and 1844. There was a spirit of consecration then that there is not now. What has come over the professed peculiar people of God? I saw the conformity to the world, the unwillingness to suffer for the truth's sake. I saw a great lack of submission to the will of God…

I saw that many who profess to believe the truth for these last days think it strange that the children of Israel murmured as they journeyed; that after the wonderful dealings of God with them, they should be so ungrateful as to forget what He had done for them. Said the angel: "Ye have done worse than they." Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 1, pp. 128, 129.

 

I was shown the conformity of some professed Sabbathkeepers to the world. Oh, I saw that it is a disgrace to their profession, a disgrace to the cause of God. They give the lie to their profession. They think they are not like the world, but they are so near like them in dress, in conversation, and actions, that there is no distinction…” “As I saw the dreadful fact that God's people were conformed to the world, with no distinction, except in name, between many of the professed disciples of the meek and lowly Jesus and unbelievers, my soul felt deep anguish. I saw that Jesus was wounded and put to an open shame. Said the angel, as with sorrow he saw the professed people of God loving the world, partaking of its spirit, and following its fashions: "Cut loose! Cut loose! lest He appoint you your portion with hypocrites and unbelievers outside the city. Your profession will only cause you greater anguish, and your punishment will be greater because ye knew His will, but did it not." Testimonies for the Church, Vol 1, p. 131, 133.

 

The above statement was penned in 1856. See the flyleaf of Vol. 1 of the Testimonies for the date.

 

Before I relate the answers I was given to my questions, I must give some more insight into the true and false church that you may better understand the verity of the answers I received.


The True and the False SDA Church Defined

 

From the beginning, faithful souls have constituted the church on earth.  In every age the Lord has had His watchmen, who have borne a faithful testimony to the generation in which they lived.  These sentinels gave the message of warning; and when they were called to lay off their armor, others took up the work.  God brought these witnesses into covenant relation with Himself, uniting the church on earth with the church in heaven.  He has sent forth His angels to minister to His church, and the gates of hell have not been able to prevail against His people.”  E.G. White, Acts of the Apostles, p. 11, 12.


I was shown that those who are trying to obey God and purifying their souls through obedience to the truth are God’s chosen people, His modern Israel”. 2T-109.


There is no other church than the assembly of those who have the word of God, and who are purified by it. Adventists, seeing that the churches rejected the testimony of God’s word, could no longer regard them as constituting the church of Christ.” 4 SP-237.


God has a church. It is not the great cathedrals, 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’. Matthew 18:20. 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.” Upward Look, 315.


Who and What is The Church? The Church is, “those who are trying to obey God and purifying their souls through obedience to the truth”, “those who have the word of God, and who are purified by it”, “the people who love God and keep His commandments.”


"The state of the Church represented by the foolish virgins, is also spoken of as the Laodicean state." E.G. White, Review and Herald, 8/19/1890.  


"The church is in the Laodicean state. The presence of God is not in her midst." E.G. White, Notebook Leaflets, p. 99, 1898. 


"To the end of time, the presence of the Spirit is to abide with the true church." E.G. White, Acts of the Apostles, p. 55.


From the beginning, faithful souls have constituted the church on earth.  In every age the Lord has had His watchmen, who have borne a faithful testimony to the generation in which they lived.  These sentinels gave the message of warning; and when they were called to lay off their armor, others took up the work.  God brought these witnesses into covenant relation with Himself, uniting the church on earth with the church in heaven.  He has sent forth His angels to minister to His church, and the gates of hell have not been able to prevail against His people.”  E.G. White, The Acts of the Apostles, p. 12.  


No Discouraging Message for the Church—"We have no discouraging message for the church. Although reproofs and cautions and corrections have been made, yet the church has stood as God's instrumentality to diffuse light. The commandment-keeping people of God have sounded forth a warning to the world, to all languages, tongues, and kindreds. The church of God is a living witness, a continual testimony, to convince men if accepted, to condemn them if resisted and rejected” (Manuscript 96, 1893). 7BC 967.2


Of course, there is no discouraging message for the true church. But a once church that has removed God, is no longer the church, for there are only two masters—Christ and Satan. When God is removed (1SM 205), by a new movement, new organization, the church becomes what Jesus called the apostate Jewish Temple—the Synagogue of Satan.

"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.


It will be seen from the following statement that True Reformers are the earthly representatives of the heavenly church spoken of in Hebrews 12:22, 23, and The Great Controversy, p. 426, 427, where the bride, New Jerusalem, is mentioned as the earth’s representative of the Kingdom of 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.


Was Ellen White Aware That There Might be the Necessity of Another Coming Out?


I was confirmed in all I had stated in Minneapolis, that a reformation must go through the churches. Reforms must be made, for spiritual weakness and blindness were upon the people who had been blessed with great light and precious opportunities and privileges. As reformers they had come out of the denominational churches, but they now act a part similar to that which the churches acted. We hoped that there would not be the necessity for another coming out. While we will endeavor to keep the "unity of the Spirit" in the bonds of peace, we will not with pen or voice cease to protest against bigotry.”—EGW '88 356, 357 (1889). {LDE 48.1}



The Answers to my Questions Which God Gave to me in Vision


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


ANSWERS: The Lord showed me that at the time Ellen White said that the church was regarded as worse than idolaters and heathen, graven-image worshippers (Catholics) who had no knowledge of a better way, it was because the “chosen remnant” had lapsed into a lukewarm, Laodicean state, in light of the advanced truths it had received from the Spirit of Prophecy. I was shown that when the statement in question was written, the church was not in open sin apostasy, but the sincerity of the general membership of the church had waned into a state of lukewarmness as early as 1852, and even more so by the date of the statement in question which was 1870.


Church Became Laodicean in the 1850’s


The seeds of lukewarmness were sown early in that first generation. Writing in the 1850’s the Servant of the Lord penned the following solemn warning.

Dear Brethren and Sisters: The Lord has shown me in vision some things concerning the church in its present lukewarm state, which I will relate to you. The church was presented before me in vision. Said the angel to the church: “Jesus speaks to thee, ‘Be zealous and repent.’” This work, I saw, should be taken hold of in earnest. There is something to repent of. Worldly-mindedness, selfishness, and covetousness have been eating out the spirituality and life of God’s people.” IT 141.


The above statement was written in 1857.


I was shown that as the Laodicean message testifies, there is hope for backslidden lukewarm members, because they are proffered the privilege of repenting and buying gold tried in the fire, faith in, and love for Christ, which will move them out of the Laodicean state, to wit:

 

No longer remain in the condition of the Laodicean church. In the name of the Lord I call upon every family to show its true colors. Reform the church in your own home.” Testimonies for the Church 7:66, 67 {CCh 196.1}

 

What is the CONDITION of the Laodicean Church?

 

·       Laodiceans are fence sitters. They are neither hot or cold. They are lukewarm.

·       At the time Ellen White wrote the statement that the people of God were worse than the heathen, she also described them as still being Laodicean.

·       The reason Ellen White classed the people of God, the Laodiceans as worse than the heathen, is because of their lukewarm stance in light of the fact that they had received advanced light via the gift of the Spirit of Prophecy that was amongst them.

·       The point at which the church ceased to be lukewarm, and became COLD APOSTATE, was the mid-1950’s when it’s leaders agreed with Dr. Walter Martin, that Christ did not come in sinful flesh.

·       According to the Bible, all who do not believe that God sent His Son in the likeness of sinful flesh are antichrist.

·       2Jo 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

·       SDA leaders agreed with Dr. Walter Martin that Christ did not come in sinful flesh, when Jesus did come in sinful flesh. The church began to teach that Christ did not come with the flesh of Adam before he sinned, or the flesh of Adam after he sinned. After Adam sinned, he had sinful flesh. That is the flesh Christ came in. All who deny that Christ came in the sinful flesh of Adam, are antichrist. So in the mid-1950’s, the SDA church took an apostate, antichrist position on the human nature of Jesus Christ. And since that time, there have been all manner of books of a new order trying to convince SDA’s that Christ was/is not like us; that He did not come in sinful flesh. Ellen White and the Bible say He did.

·       Rom 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

·       To teach the antichrist position that Christ did not come in sinful flesh, is a COLD APOSTATE STANCE. Thus, this was when the church ceased to be lukewarm Laodicean, and began to teach in common with the Synagogue of Satan.

·       This antichrist position became official in the 1980 Fundamentals of Belief, by being voted in at the World General Conference Session.

 

 

 Additional Factors as Answers I was Shown to Question 1

 

In Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 70-72, it is evident that tares are insincere believers whose motives one would have to JUDGE in order to uproot them. We are never to JUDGE motives. I was shown that it is the same situation with Laodiceans. They are fence-sitters, and we would have to judge their motives in order to separate from them or to separate them from the church. We can judge the general condition of such a church, but we can’t judge individuals because we don’t know at what stage they are at in their Christian experience. Though it is a true assessment that Laodiceans are worse than heathen, graven image idolaters because of their insincerity which results in lukewarmness, we cannot judge individuals because we don’t know the stage of their walk with God. That is why there is no sanction in leaving a Laodicean church. That is why Ellen White never left. She met apostasy head on, as she did in the case of John Kellogg involving the Alpha heresy.

 

However, Ellen White said that the omega would surely come in the form of a new movement, new organization, that would remove God and pillar doctrines. 1SM 204-205. This is what constitutes OPEN SIN APOSTASY. We can JUDGE such open sin, as all Adventists do JUDGE when they choose Adventism over the other churches, and pronounce them as being Babylon. We can JUDGE according to Isaiah 8:20.

 

Ellen White clearly stated that open sin must be separated from the church, to wit:

 

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.” Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 71.

 

If we attempted to JUDGE and UPROOT anyone on the basis of their sincerity, we would be errant, because we don’t know the heart. Only Christ is the Judge in such cases. But we are to JUDGE open sin by the commandments of God and His Word. Every Adventist makes this JUDGMENT, by the fact that he/she is an Adventist rather than being of some other persuasion.

 

WHAT TO DO WHEN SIN CANNOT BE SEPARATED FROM THE CHURCH BECAUSE THE LEADERS ARE THE CULPRITS


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.” Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 71.

 

When a new movement, new organization was formed by the leaders, who removed pillar doctrines on the human nature of Christ and the Godhead, and embraced ecumenism in violation of the second angel’s message, and lately welcomed the LGBT movement into even leadership positions, we can’t remove those apostate leaders. Ellen White said that “Nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the new movement.” 1SM 205.

 

When we can’t remove the apostate leaders, we must leave for the following Biblical reasons:

 

·       Lest we be held corporately responsible for the abominations of apostasy.

·       Lest it be IMPOSSIBLE that we become/remain pure and ripen for the harvest.

·       Lest we be slaughtered with all who would not leave at the Bible and SOP waymarks given by God’s Word and His appointed messengers.


"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.


Some say that they are going to remain and change things. Is that what Christ did? Does His Word say that is impossible? Did Ellen White say that the new movement would allow NOTHING to stand in its way? Who is so arrogant that they think they are going to change things at the apostate church. Such persons directly contradict God’s Word, the SOP, and the example of Jesus Christ.  


The Corporate Responsibility Factor

 

I have listened to many videos by Batchelor and Veith, but have NEVER ONCE heard either of them, or any other SDA minister, teach corporate responsibility for the abominable apostacies of the church. I have never heard either of them quote the following statements:

 

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

 

Thorns are OPEN SINNERS. Tares are not OPEN SINNERS. They are insincere types whose motives we would have to judge in order to expel or pull them up from the wheat. But the thorns are quite another issue, and when they spring up, if they are not either reformed or expelled from the church, it is impossible for the wheat to mature. So what must the wheat do in order to mature? Leave the thorns. This is precisely what Jesus and His disciples did, Desire of Ages, 232, as follows:

 

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

As the light and life of men was rejected by the ecclesiastical authorities in the days of Christ, so it has been rejected in every succeeding generation. Again and again the history of Christ's withdrawal from Judea has been repeated. When the Reformers preached the word of God, they had no thought of separating themselves from the established church but the religious leaders would not tolerate the light, and those that bore it were forced to seek another class, who were longing for the truth. In our day few of the professed followers of the Reformers are actuated by their spirit. Few are listening for the voice of God, and ready to accept truth in whatever guise it may be presented. Often those who follow in the steps of the Reformers are forced to turn away from the churches they love, in order to declare the plain teaching of the word of God. And many times those who are seeking for light are by the same teaching obliged to leave the church of their fathers, that they may render obedience." E.G. White, Desire of Ages, 232.

 

·       Jesus “gathered out” those who should carry the gospel to all nations.

·       God has shown me in vision more than once that the responses of Jesus and the disciples from A.D. 27-66, are a PREFIGURE TYPE for us to follow, for all such responses are relative to the reasons why Ezekiel 9 was literally fulfilled upon the Jews in A.D. 70.

·       The Spirit of Prophecy is telling you that IN EVERY SUCCEEDING GENERATION, True Reformers have left the churches of their fathers FOR ONE REASON: “The religious leaders would not tolerate light.”

·       Mrs. White is saying that in our day there should be more reformers who are actuated by the spirit of the true reformers who left the churches of their fathers because they would not tolerate light.

·       Apostate SDA leaders today reject light. They TOTALLY reject the fact that the church is in apostasy. They reject the light that the good leave that church before it is destroyed by a literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9. They teach the exact opposite, that the bad are shaken out of that church WHICH THEY MISREPRESENT AS ZION.

·       Ellen White says the true church remains while sinners are shaken out of Zion. Zion is NOT the church militant. Zion is the church triumphant bride of Christ, that is married. Isaiah 62:1-5.

·       Zion gives the Loud Cry, Isaiah 62:1-12.

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 Midnight Cry: Behold the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him. Matthew 25 and COL, pp. 405-406.

 

All SDA leaders, including Batchelor and Veith, teach that you must remain in the apostate SDA church until the bad are shaken out, when that will never happen because the dross/tares/thorns are shaken into the midsts of what was supposed to be spiritua/chosenl Jerusalem, the SDA church, exactly as the dross/chaff was shaken into the midsts of the Jerusalem apostate church in the PREFIGURE literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9, Ezekiel 22:17-31. This passage is so gravely serious, and totally contrary to the lie that is being taught as to who leaves whom, that I am going to quote if for you below:

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

After the disciples had gathered out all the faithful into home churches, verse 30 was true. There was not ONE MAN left in Jerusalem who would make up the hedge and stand in the gap for God. And the destruction ensued. Verse 24 says that the apostate church IS NOT CLEANSED, nor does any Holy Spirit RAIN fall upon it in the upcoming day of indignation. Compare Revelation 14:10-12.

 

No SDA Leader will teach you the following EXAMPLE set by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and His faithful followers:

 

"The recreant priests added licentiousness to the dark catalogue of their crimes yet they still polluted by their presence the tabernacle of the Lord, and, laden with sin, dared to come into the presence of a holy God. As the men of Israel witnessed the corrupt course of the priests, they thought it safer for their families not to come up to the appointed place of worship. Many went from Shiloh with their peace disturbed, their indignation aroused, until they at last determined to offer their sacrifices themselves, concluding that this would be fully as acceptable to God, as to sanction in any manner the abominations practiced in the Sanctuary." E.G. White, The Signs of the Times, Vol. 1, p. 264, col. 3, December 1, 1881.

 

Christ, as our example of Protestantism, left:

 

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

 

Paul Left

 

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

 

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

 

Leave them "If God has any new light to communicate, He will let His chosen and beloved understand it, without their going to have their minds enlightened by hearing those who are in darkness and error. {EW 124.2}

 

I was shown the necessity of those who believe that we are having the last message of mercy, being separate from those who are daily imbibing new errors. I saw that neither young nor old should attend their meetings; for it is wrong to thus encourage them while they teach error that is a deadly poison to the soul and teach for doctrines the commandments of men. The influence of such gatherings is not good. If God has delivered us from such darkness and error, we should stand fast in the liberty wherewith He has set us free and rejoice in the truth. God is displeased with us when we go to listen to error, without being obliged to go; for unless He sends us to those meetings where error is forced home to the people by the power of the will, He will not keep us. The angels cease their watchful care over us, and we are left to the buffetings of the enemy, to be darkened and weakened by him and the power of his evil angels; and the light around us becomes contaminated with the darkness. {EW 124.3}

 

I saw that we have no time to throw away in listening to fables. Our minds should not be thus diverted, but should be occupied with the present truth,..." EW p. 125.

 

SDA leaders quote Ellen White on how we should be like Daniel and Moses, but they don’t quote the following example of Daniel and Moses!

 

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

 

The words “makes you ONE WITH THEM,” shout the principle of corporate responsibility!

 

Scripture on Home Churches

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Ellen White on Home Churches in the Alpha of Apostasy:

 

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

 

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

 

"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." Upward Look, p. 315.

 

Doug and Walter say DON’T LEAVE, NEVER LEAVE! How many times have you heard the saying that Ellen White never told anyone to leave? That is a lie as the following statements prove. I have stated them before, but read them together for the full impact:

 

Leave them "If God has any new light to communicate, He will let His chosen and beloved understand it, without their going to have their minds enlightened by hearing those who are in darkness and error. {EW 124.2}

 

I was shown the necessity of those who believe that we are having the last message of mercy, being separate from those who are daily imbibing new errors.

The angels cease their watchful care over us, and we are left to the buffetings of the enemy, to be darkened and weakened by him and the power of his evil angels; and the light around us becomes contaminated with the darkness. {EW 124.3}

"Even though you may not be able to speak a word to those who are working on wrong principles, leave them. Your withdrawal and silence may do more than words. Nehemiah refused to associate with those who were untrue to principle, and he would not permit his workmen to associate with them.

Review & Herald Vol. 4, p. 42.

 

There are men like Doug Batchelor and Walter Veith, who refer to Ellen White’s statement instructing us to be like Moses in our response to the church, but if you will read all the accounts of Moses in dealing with apostasy, he removed the Tabernacle from the camp until the apostasy was removed. He had the apostates killed. In one instance, he ordered the killing of 3000 apostates. Since the time of Christ, apostate leaders have not been killed by the faithful. God has appointed that their enemies will kill them, not the faithful, who will not kill anyone. In the prefigure of A.D. 70, it was the enemies of the Jews, the Romans, who killed them in the first literal manifestation of Ezekiel 9.

 

Walter Veith’s instruction is to buy a large bottle of super-glue and glue yourself to a pew—STAY WITH THE CHURCH NO MATTER WHAT! He also says that if you think the church stinks, clip a cloths pin on your nose. He says the ark stank as well. That gets him a good laugh, but he and his compatriots won’t be laughing when another literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 falls upon the church.

 

Ellen White said in The Great Controversy, p. 25, in describing the A.D. 70 destruction of Jerusalem, that it was a PREFIGURE of the terrors of the last great day. Then, on page 211 of Testimonies, Vol. 5, she says that it begins at His Church, His Sanctuary, the House of Jacob, where men, maidens and little children will perish without mercy. That will be the inevitable fate of all who follow the instruction of intra-church “reformers” like Batchelor and Veith.

 

Though the SDA Bible Commentary says that the sieges by Nebuchadnezzar fulfilled Ezekiel 9, that is not true for the reason that the 490 years probation of the Jews did not end until A.D. 34, and God would not let Ezekiel 9 materialize before His people were tested and SEALED BY THE MARK OF THE MAN IN LINEN. That seal did not take place until the Day of Pentecost, A. D 34.

 

Ellen White says Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled again, to wit:

 

"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.

 

I was shown that although Ellen White saw all the signs of the church becoming a flirting harlot (see 8T 250), those signs constituted “playing the harlot.” But the unpardonable sin of actually marrying into Satan’s system does not occur until such time as a church dispenses with pillar doctrines such as the Godhead, and the human nature of Christ, which means everything to us said Ellen White, and accepts Satan’s counterfeit.

 

Ellen White said that everything clusters around what one believes about the human nature of Christ and the Godhead, which, of course, is an integral part of the human nature of Christ’s personage. I was shown that Ellen White could not be a member of a church that denies the very Incarnation act, by teaching the Trinity Doctrine which teaches that there were THRE CO-ETERNAL PERSONS. That means there were three persons to the Godhead before the Incarnation sacrifice, which produced the THIRD NON-ETERNAL PERSON, THE HUMANITY OF CHRIST.

 


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

 

Answers: Ellen White was vigilantly and vigorously able to keep open sin apostasy out of the church, and her war against Kellogg in the Alpha heresy is a good example of how she MET APOSTASY HEAD ON. But Ellen White said the Omega would surely come, and come it did. She saw great changes after her death. And we have seen GREAT CHANGES. There was no open sin apostasy in the church in Ellen White’s day, and that is why she did not leave.

 


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

 

ANSWER: I have given the answer to this question. Laodicea must advance into COLD APOSTASY before her members should leave her. I will herein give more examples of such apostasy.

 

Further Antichrist Apostasy at the 1980 General Conference Session

 

The ecumenical meetings with Dr. Walter Martin and Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse, in the mid-1950-s, resulted in the threat by Dr. Martin to brand the SDA church a cult in his forthcoming book entitled Kingdom of the Cults, if the church did not cede to certain beliefs of the Evangelicals IN ADDITION TO THEIR ANTICHRIST VIEWS ON THE HUMAN NATURE OF CHRIST. They prodded SDA leaders with the chidings that if they were real Christians they would join the ecumenical associations, councils/counsels, girdings, and confederacies associated with the World Council of Churches, such as National Councils of Churches, etc., which are all subsidiaries of the World Council of Churches.

 

The SDA church proceeded to “PROVE” it’s “real Christian” qualification by doing the bidding of Dr.’s Martin and Barnhouse. In 1986, I wrote to The World Council of Churches and requested 12 copies of its Directory Christian Councils, which listed all MEMBERS and ASSOCIATE MEMBERS of the WCC. That directory lists the SDA church as FULL MEMBERS in five countries of the world, and ASSOCIATE MEMBERS in some other countries. At the time, there were many letters circulating by true reformers who had written to the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A., asking if the SDA church was a member. In every case, the NCCU.S.A. replied: YES. Since that time, the church has vacillated between being listed on the NCCU.S.A. ROSTER, and having their name not listed. At time when it was indeed listed, I posted a link to the roster on my website.

 

After joining the councils associated with the WCC, that council (confederacy of churches) has put pressure on the SDA church to accede to its positions on serious issues such as women’s ordination, and the LGBT Movement. The Reader’s Digest wrote articles on the WCC, proving its communist orientation, and how it was designed to destroy the Christian religion, in favor of a Marxist, Socialist, ONE WORLD RELIGION:

 

1) http://www.pravoslavieto.com/docs/eng/gospel_accord_marx.htm

2)https://www.questia.com/magazine/1G1-13405361/reader-s-digest-attacks-wcc-again

 

So Dr. Walter Martin did the “softening up,” and the WCC has done the rest to lead the SDA church into Satan’s Synagogue. Such confederacy is strictly forbidden in Isaiah 8:9-16, and the Second Angels Message. The Isaiah reference says that all who commit this act will be “BROKEN IN PIECES,” and this refers directly to the Ezekiel 9 slaughter, for the margin reference for slaughter weapons in Ezekiel 9:2 (KJV), is: “a weapon of his weapon of breaking in pieces.” Ecumenical confederacy with Babylon is a prime reason for a literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 upon the apostate SDA church, per Ezekiel 9 and Ellen G. White.

 

Why is it that we NEVER hear SDA leaders, and even pseudo reformer leaders like Doug Batchelor and Dr. Walter Veith, teach the following statements:

 

"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.

 

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

 

The 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. 

 

The mark of deliverance has been set upon those "that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done." Now the angel of death goes forth, represented in Ezekiel's vision by the men with the slaughtering weapons, to whom the command is given: "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." Says the prophet: "They began at the ancient men which were before the house." Ezekiel 9:1-6. The work of destruction begins among those who have professed to be the spiritual guardians of the people. The false watchmen are the first to fall. There are none to pity or to spare. Men, women, maidens, and little children perish together.  {GC 656.2}


Mark this point with care: Those who receive the pure mark of truth, wrought in them by the power of the Holy Ghost, represented by a mark by the man in linen, are those “that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done” in the church. Their love for purity and the honor and glory of God is such, and they have so clear a view of the exceeding sinfulness of sin, that they are represented as being in agony, even sighing and crying. Read the ninth chapter of Ezekiel. {3T 267.1}


But the general slaughter of all those who do not thus see the wide contrast between sin and righteousness, and do not feel as those do who stand in the counsel of God and receive the mark, is described in the order to the five men with slaughter weapons: “Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: 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.” {3T 267.2}


Mark this point with care: Those who receive the pure mark of truth, wrought in them by the power of the Holy Ghost, represented by a mark by the man in linen, are those 'that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the church.  ‘But the general slaughter of all those who do not thus see the wide contrast between sin and righteousness, and do not feel as those do who stand in the counsel of God and receive the mark, is described in the order to the five men with slaughter weapons: Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity; 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' [Ezekiel 9:56]" Testimonies, Vol. 3, p. 267.

 

IN THE VERY COURTS OF THE SDA TEMPLE

 

"In the very courts of the temple, scenes will be enacted that few realize. God's people will be proved and tested, that He may discern 'between him that serveth God and him that serveth Him not.' Vengeance will be executed against those who sit in the gate, deciding what the people should have and what they should not have. These take away the key of knowledge. They refuse to enter in themselves, and those who would enter in they hinder. These bear not the seal of the living God. All who now occupy responsible positions should be solemnly and terribly afraid lest in this time they shall be found as unfaithful stewards." E.G. White, Manuscript 15, 1886, Paulson Collection, p. 55.

 

The Prefigure of Ezekiel 9 That the Apostate Leaders Will Never Show You

 

Even the pseudo intra-church reformers like Doug Batchelor and Professor Walter Veith, never discuss Ezekiel 9. I asked the Lord why this is so. The Angel of the Lord told me that they don’t teach Ezekiel 9 beginning at His Church, His Sanctuary, the House of Jacob, “those who have been privileged with great light,” because it would destroy their lie that the bad are shaken out of the SDA church militant to leave it the church triumphant. The truth is that the bad (dross/tares) are shaken into the midsts of Jerusalem (spiritual Jerusalem, the church), for slaughter, burning and melting, just as occurred in the first literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 in A.D. 70. Read Ezekiel 22:17-31 to find exactly where the dross (the bad, the tares) were gathered in what Ellen White defined as THE PREFIGURE of Ezekiel 9..

 

The future was mercifully veiled from the disciples. Had they at that time fully comprehend 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.

Jesus declared to the listening disciples the judgments that were to fall upon apostate Israel, and especially the retributive vengeance that would come upon them for their rejection and crucifixion of the Messiah. Unmistakable signs would precede the awful climax. The dreaded hour would come

Page 26

suddenly and swiftly. And the Saviour warned His followers: "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains." Matthew 24:15, 16; Luke 21:20, 21. When the idolatrous standards of the Romans should be set up in the holy ground, which extended some furlongs outside the city walls, then the followers of Christ were to find safety in flight. When the warning sign should be seen, those who would escape must make no delay. Throughout the land of Judea, as well as in Jerusalem itself, the signal for flight must be immediately obeyed. He who chanced to be upon the housetop must not go down into his house, even to save his most valued treasures. Those who were working in the fields or vineyards must not take time to return for the outer garment laid aside while they should be toiling in the heat of the day. They must not hesitate a moment, lest they be involved in the general destruction.” E.G. White, The Great Controversy, pp. 25, 26.

 

Important Observations:

 

·       In Testimonies, Vol. 5, pp. 451, and 464, Ellen White parallels the legislation of the National Sunday Law, with the idolatrous standards of the Romans being set up in the holy ground.

·       Further reading in the first Chapter of The Great Controversy, reveals the fact that the Jewish leaders told the people that Jerusalem and the Temple was God’s church, and that God would protect His chosen people from any enemy, and that the enemy would never reach beyond the gates to the city of Jerusalem. God has shown me that SDA leaders will tell their members the same lie, and they will flock to the churches the world over to be slaughtered, for that is where the slaughter BEGINS.

·       Some are teaching that Ezekiel 9 is the same as the Will Ross statement. That is a lie. In the Will Ross statement, the slaughter DOES NOT BEGIN AT THE CHURCH. It does not even mention a slaughter. It says that ALL MEMBERS FLEE, and those who had sought positions flee and were never seen again. How does that equate with the slaughterers BEGINNING WITH THE ANCIENT MEN (THE LEADERS) AT HIS CHURCH, HIS SANCTUARY?

·       In the Will Ross statement there is no mention of men, maidens and little children being slaughtered without mercy. Thus, that statement, when taught to be Ezekiel 9, as some are doing, is a peace and safety lie.

·       In defining the A.D. 70 slaughter as a PREFIGURE, Chapter 1, The Great Controversy, the end-time literal fulfillment will begin at the church as a slaughter, beginning with the leaders, and ending with the slaughter of men, maidens and little children.

·       All who truly love the brethren of the SDA church, would surely want to warn their friends, relatives, and EVERY MEMBER they could warn, about such a horrible literal event as prophesied in the Bible and by the Spirit of Prophecy. It is an act of love to warn them. It is an act of deceit by Satan, not to warn them. It is also an act of deceit by Satan to water down this terrible debacle by saying the Will Ross statement is the same event, when that statement does not even mention the slaughter of anyone, and it DOES NOT mention any slaughter BEGINNING at His Sanctuary, His church.

·       As a pre-warning to the literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9, God has given the sign of the abomination of desolation. In the end-time fulfillment, the warning will be the legislation of a National Sunday Law. To the contrary, placing the Will Ross statement as Ezekiel 9, and occurring BEFORE the National Sunday Law, there would be absolutely no warning, no abomination of desolation sign per Matthew 24. Such a teaching makes God a tyrant, inflicting such a debacle upon His people without any warning sign for the faithful to flee, as was the case in the PREFIGURE of A.D. 66-70.

·       For the above reasons, the teaching that the Will Ross statement is Ezekiel 9, and comes BEFORE the National Sunday Law, as a purging and cleansing of the church for giving the Loud Cry, is the same peace and safety lie the leaders are teaching: that the bad leave the church, and that is totally contrary to the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. The leaders have been teaching that lie since the death of Ellen White in 1915. Satan wants as many Adventists to be killed as possible! All who teach a lie as to who leaves whom, are supporting Satan’s cause.

 

Once again, Ellen White clearly states in The Great Controversy, p. 25, 1911, edition, that the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. was a PREFIGURE. Prefigure means TYPE, which demands a similar ANTITYPICAL FULFILLMENT. Then she says that another LITERAL FULFILLMENT of Ezekiel 9 will occur. So all we have to do is go back to the TYPE, THE PREFIGURE and see what happened then, and any other interpretation makes Ellen White a false prophet:

 

1) Who left whom then? The good left the Bad.

2) Where were the tares gathered? Into the Midst of Jerusalem, the apostate church, Ezekiel 22:17-31.

3) Was there a primitive revival of the Jewish people? Yes! Where did it take place? Within the apostate Jewish Church, or outside it? Obviously outside it, Desire of Ages, 232, or it would not have been destroyed had the revival occurred inside the Jewish church!

4) Who was True Zion, from whence the sinners were shaken? Was it the apostate Jewish Organization, or was it from the reformer church of Jesus and the disciples?

5) Did the Jewish people leave the apostate Jewish church long before persecution began? Yes, they began to leave when Jesus "gathered out" those who would take the gospel to the world. Desire of Ages, 232, and even before this according to the following statement by Ellen White:

 

  "The recreant priests added licentiousness to the dark catalogue of their crimes yet they still polluted by their presence the tabernacle of the Lord, and, laden with sin, dared to come into the presence of a holy God. As the men of Israel witnessed the corrupt course of the priests, they thought it safer for their families not to come up to the appointed place of worship. Many went from Shiloh with their peace disturbed, their indignation aroused, until they at last determined to offer their sacrifices themselves, concluding that this would be fully as acceptable to God, as to sanction in any manner the abominations practiced in the Sanctuary." E.G. White, The Signs of the Times, vol. 1, p. 264, col. 3, December 1, 1881.

 

Any teaching that contradicts this Ezekiel 9 PREFIGURE SCENARIO, is contradicting Ellen White and SCRIPTURE, because Ezekiel 5:9, proves that Ezekiel 9 is really PRIMARILY FULFILLED at the end-time when God does the worst thing He has ever done or will ever do again. The end-time interpretations of the current professing SDA New Movement Church, violate this PREFIGURE SCENARIO stated by Ellen White and backed by Scripture. Choose ye this day, between Scripture and Ellen White, versus "dumb dog watchmen," who will NEVER AGAIN show the House of Jacob their sins, Testimonies, vol. 5, 211, and Isaiah 56:10-12.

 

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

 

ANSWERS: The church would have to form a new movement, new organization that would REMOVE GOD, AND PILLAR DOCTRINES, AND ALLOW NOTHING TO STAND IN ITS WAY—NOT EVEN ELLEN WHITE, WHOSE COUNSEL THAT NEW MOVMENT NOW TOTALLY IGNORES AND DOWNPLAYS TO ADVICE OF A LITTLE OLD LADY TO THE PEOPLE OF HER TIME, AND NOT A CONTRIBUTOR TO THE DOCTRINES OF THE CHURCH.

 

President Ted Wilson fulfills the very last deception of Satan under his watch or during the time he serves officially in office: Essentially, the leaders approved and the delegates voted in the 2015 General Conference Session for Fundamental Belief #18 that Ellen White’s writings have discontinued as an authoritative source of truth. http://www.trustingod.org/2015

 

The Lord showed me that Ellen White could never be a member of the new movement she so aptly prophesied, and which is in full control of the professing SDA church today:

 

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

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

 

"The things you have described as taking place in Indiana, the Lord has shown me would take place just before the close of probation. Every uncouth thing will be demonstrated. There will be shouting, with drums, music, and dancing. The senses of rational beings will become so confused that they cannot be trusted to make right decisions. And this is called the moving of the Holy Spirit. 

The Holy Spirit never reveals itself in such methods, in such a bedlam of noise. This is an invention of Satan to cover up his ingenious methods for making of none effect the pure, sincere, elevating, ennobling, sanctifying truth for this time. Better never have the worship of God blended with music than to use musical instruments to do the work which last January was represented to me would be brought into our camp meetings. The truth for this time needs nothing of this kind in its work of converting souls. A bedlam of noise shocks the senses and pervert that which if conducted aright might be a blessing. The powers of satanic agencies blend with the din and noise, to have a carnival, and this is termed the Holy Spirits working." Selected Messages, Vol. 2, p. 36.

 

 "I saw the nominal church and nominal Adventists, like Judas, would betray us to the Catholics to obtain their influence to come against the truth. The saints then will be an obscure [hidden] people, little known to the Catholics but the churches and nominal Adventists who know of our faith and customs (for they hate us on account of the Sabbath, for they could not refute it) will betray the saints and report them to the Catholics as those who disregard the institutions of the people that is, that they keep the Sabbath and disregard Sunday. 


Then the Catholics bid the Protestants to go forward and issue a decree that all who will not observe the first day of the week, instead of the seventh day, shall be slain. And the Catholics, whose numbers are large, will stand by the Protestants. The Catholics will give their power to the image of the beast. And the Protestants will work as their mother worked before them to destroy the saints. But before their decree bring or bear fruit, the saints will be delivered by the Voice of God. Then I saw that Jesus' work in the sanctuary will soon be finished. And after His work there is finished, He will come to the door of the first apartment, and confess the sins of Israel upon the head of the Scape Goat. Then He will put on the garments of vengeance. Then the plagues will come upon the wicked, and they do not come till Jesus puts on that garment, and takes Hs place upon the great white cloud. Then while the plagues are falling, the Scape Goat is being led away. He makes a mighty struggle to escape, but he is held fast by the hand that leads him. If he should effect his escape, Israel would lose their lives. I saw that it would take time to lead away the Scape Goat into the land of forgetfulness after the sins were put on his head.


The great white cloud I saw was not the holy place, but entirely separate from the holy and most holy place, entirely separate from the sanctuary. 


Then the angel repeated these words, and said, 'This is the time spoken of in Isaiah. He saw that there was not man, and wondered that there was no intercessor. He had no mediator between God and man, and these plagues could be withheld no longer, for Jesus had ceased to plead for Israel, and they were covered with the covering of the Almighty God, and they could live in the sight of a holy God, and those who were not covered, the plagues fell upon them, for they had nothing to shelter or protect them from the wrath of God." E.G. White, Dorchester, Maine, October 23, 1850, Spalding--Magan's Unpublished Mss. Testimonies, pp. 1, 2.

 

Clearly, the nominal Adventists will not be keeping the Sabbath, because they hate the saints on account of the Sabbath. Notice that Ellen White says there will be “nominal Adventists,” AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE TIME OF TROUBLE:

 

I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They have not rejected the light upon it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully. This enraged the churches and nominal Adventist, as they could not refute the Sabbath truth.” Early Writings, p. 33.

 

The Channel of Communication to the people: "The disciples were the channel of communication between Christ and the people. This should be a real encouragement to His disciples today. Christ is the great center, the source of all strength. His disciples are to receive their supplies from Him. The most intelligent, the most spiritually minded, can bestow only as they receive. Of themselves they can supply nothing for the needs of the soul. We can impart only that which we receive from Christ and we can receive only as we impart to others. As we continue imparting, we continue to receive and the more we impart, the more we shall receive. Thus we may be constantly believing, trusting, receiving, and imparting." The Desire of Ages, 370.
