198. My Vision on the SDA Trashing of the Protestant Reformation


October 2, 2018

It is a backsliding church that lessens the distance between itself and the Papacy.” ST, February 19, 1894 (3ST 99).



In the night hours of October 2, 2018, the Lord gave me a vision on Adventism’s parallel contribution to the ending of the Lutheran Protestant Reformation on October 31, 2017. I was shown that the SDA new movement has acted on this issue by fork-tongued and double-speaking deception. The President of the General Conference, Ted N. C. Wilson, wrote an article in the Adventist Review relating how the church would never discard the Protestant Reformation, all the while the once SDA church militant had fully cooperated with Evangelicals in their trashing of the Protestant Reformation by revising the Spirit of Prophecy book The Great Controversy, to totally omit all reference to the Protestant Reformation.

 

But it gets worse! Far worse! The Lord showed me that what His people have missed is the fact that the Protestant Reformation was trashed by new movement Adventism long before October 31, 2017, by the following statement made by the President of the General Conference of SDA’s, in 1974-75:

 

"Although it is true that there was a period in the life of the Seventh-day Adventist Church when the denomination took a distinctly anti-Roman Catholic viewpoint...that attitude on the church's part was nothing more than a manifestation of widespread anti-popery among conservative Protestant denominations in the early part of this century and the latter part of the last, and which has now been consigned to the historical trash heap so far as the Seventh-day Adventist Church is concerned." (Neal C. Wilson, past president of the Seventh-day Adventist General Conference, Court Transcript of United States vs the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission vs the Pacific Press Publishing Association and the General Conference, Reply Brief for Defendants, p 4, Civil Case #74-2025 CBR, presided over by Judge Charles B. Renfrew, U.S. District Court, San Francisco, California, 1974-1975.)

 

Forty-two years before the other Protestant churches joined Rome in trashing the Protestant Reformation, the SDA church General Conference President beat Babylon to the punch! Every MEMBER of the new movement is corporately responsible for this abominable heresy:

 

Corporate responsibility The innocent suffer with the guilty:

 

The plainest example of corporate responsibility taught by Scripture is that Christ is the head and we are the body of His Church. The head of the body cannot endure sin in the body. Thus, Christ Himself would be corporately responsible if He permitted sin in His body, His church.

 

God regards as his enemies those who will by any act of negligence shield the guilty. They are in his sight partakers in the evil deeds of the sinner. {ST January 20, 1881, par. 15}


Here are lessons which God’s people at the present day should take to heart. There are grievous sins indulged by individual members of the church,—covetousness, over-reaching, deception, fraud, falsehood, and many others. If these sins are neglected by those who have been placed in authority in the church, the blessing of the Lord is withheld from his people, and the innocent suffer with the guilty. The officers in the church should be earnest, energetic men, having a zeal for God, and they should take the most prompt and thorough measures to condemn and correct these wrongs. In this work they should act, not from selfishness, jealousy, or personal prejudice, but in all meekness and lowliness of mind, with a sincere desire that God may be glorified. Inhumanity, false dealing, prevarication, licentiousness, and other sins, are not to be palliated or excused; for they will speedily demoralize the church. Sin may be called by false names, and glossed over by plausible excuses and pretended good motives, but this does not lessen its guilt in the sight of God. Wherever it may be found, sin is offensive to God, and will surely meet its punishment.” {ST January 20, 1881, par. 16}

 

Ted N. C. Wilson on Corporate Responsibility

 

·       Corporate responsibility for praying for the Holy Spirit:  Elder Ted Wilson CORRECTLY stated in his General Conference Sabbath Sermon – July 3, 2010, that the church is corporately responsible for praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. You may hear and/or read the entire sermon at this link. Search the text for the word CORPORATELY. http://www.steps.org.au/page/go-forward-Ted-NC-Wilson.html

·       Ted Wilson’s Statement: It depends on whether or not we are ready to humbly ask for revival and reformation in our lives personally and corporately as a church which will lead to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain.”

·       If the church is corporately responsible for the Holy Spirit’s outpouring of the Latter Rain upon the SDA church, then the church is corporately responsible for the apostasy that precludes that outpouring.

·       If the church is corporate responsible for the Holy Spirit existing in the church, IT IS CORPORATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REASON THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT AND CANNOT BE IN THE ONCE CHURCH.

·       In the last typical literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9, no “holy spirit rain” fell upon apostate Israel, Ezekiel 22:24. So it won’t fall in the antitypical fulfillment upon the apostate SDA church militant (wheat and tare co-ed church).


Corporate responsibility is stressed by the Holy Spirit gift through Ellen White:

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

 

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

 

All of the above is another prime reason why Ellen White said the church was worse than heathen, graven image, idol worshippers. In essence, the SDA church trashed the Protestant Reformation long before the Evangelicals and Catholics did!

 

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.

 

Ellen White said that she would not change a word in her Great Controversy book, while apostate SDA leaders have omitted more than 600 pages and 31 chapters which taught the distinctive pillar doctrines of Seventh-day Adventism, to include the Three Angel’s Messages. The full copy of Ellen White’s Great Controversy has over 700 pages and 42 chapters. The book the new movement has replaced The Great Controversy with, is entitled The Great Hope. I was shown that this is one of the most abominable examples of “books of a new order,” that were to be brought forth by the omega new movement, new organization. Notice:

 

"The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among [WITHIN] 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.

 

Dr. Walter Veith has said that we are not to repudiate such apostasy, but only teach the three angel’s messages. The Spirit of Prophecy says to REPUDIATE EVERYTHING that is not in harmony with the foundation of Adventism. God says to cry aloud and show my people their sins (Isa. 58:1), and Ezekiel 9 says to sigh and cry for all the abominations, and that only those who do so will be sealed (MARKED) by the Man in Linen.

 

The new movement is so cunning and deceptive. It would never agree outright with the act of the Evangelicals and Catholics in dispensing with the Protestant Reformation, but it surely has done so by the Satanic act of omission in the changing of the Spirit of Prophecy on such serious issues. Truly, this adds serious meaning to the words: “It is a backsliding church that lessens the distance between itself and the Papacy.” ST, February 19, 1894 (3ST 99).

 

I was shown that the words of the following statement (UL, 131 further down) are fully applicable to the new movement, and have been since the mid-1950’s when the church was complicit in other forbidden ventures with the Evangelicals, which resulted in the antichrist apostasy of the new movement in changing Bible Readings on the human nature of Christ, to an antichrist teaching. The church’s flagship magazine for other ministers of other faiths, Ministry, at the time, sent out 450,000 copies to other ministers and libraries of the world, saying that Jesus took the nature of Adam BEFORE the fall.

 

That act totally betrayed the Atonement Sacrifice of Jesus Christ, whereby He came in the likeness of our human nature to be an example for us in overcoming sin. The Bible says that all who do not confess that He came in the likeness of sinful flesh are ANTICHRIST.

 

1Jo 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

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.

 

The words “come in the flesh” MEAN in the likeness of SINFUL FLESH. Jesus never sinned personally, but He took upon Himself our sinful flesh. Mary was a sinner. The Catholics make Mary an Immaculate non-sinner in order to teach that Jesus DID NOT come in our sinful flesh. They then conclude that we cannot overcome sin, but just sin confess, sin confess, and sin confess on a continuum basis. This errant teaching filled the coffers of the church when its members purchased indulgences for the priests to pardon their continuum of sinning.

 

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:

 

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.

 

I was shown that the “others” God has chosen since the mid-1950’s apostasy, are the true reformers and their Home Churches, just as He chose the disciples and their Home Churches when the Jewish people rejected Christ, and He took the kingdom from them.

 

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 Heresy

 

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.  


"Brother and sister Haskell have rented a house in one of the best parts of the city, and have gathered round them a family of helpers, who day by day go out giving Bible readings, selling our papers, and doing medical missionary work. During the hour of worship, the workers relate their experiences. Bible studies are regularly conducted in the home, and THE YOUNG MEN AND YOUNG WOMEN connected with the mission receive a practical, thorough training in holding Bible readings and in selling our publications. The Lord has blessed their labors, a number have embraced the truth, and many others are deeply interested." Review and Herald, September 7, 1905, Evangelism, p. 108.


Some say that Ellen White never taught separation. They don’t know about the above example of separation. But it gets broader to include leaving all who work on wrong principles:

"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.

 

Is it working on wrong principles to:

1.    Teach the “church” and the world the antichrist lie that Christ came in the likeness of Adam BEFORE the fall? Will such be saved?

2.    Teach the “church” and the world by omission, that the Protestant Reformation is ended via the blasphemous book: The Great Hope?

3.    Teach the “church” and the world that there are three co-ETERNAL persons to the Godhead, when the humanity of Christ was/is NOT eternal, thus sweeping away the entire Christian economy by sweeping away the Incarnation Atonement Sacrifice whereby a third person accrued in the person of the humanity of Christ?

4.    Teach the “church” and the world that church leaders and violate Isaiah 8:9-12 imperviously, when God says THREE TIMES that all such violators will be BROKEN IN PIECES, which will occur at the next literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 slaughter of men, maidens, and little children.

 

"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.

 

"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}

 

What About Those Who Go Out From Us?

 

The course we are to follow has a type in Christ and His followers and how they responded to apostasy. When the Jews betrayed and rejected truth, Jesus and His disciples left and “gathered out” those who would take the gospel to the world (DA 232). Deceptive leaders of the new movement have misrepresented statements like the following to mislead the members into believing that all the bad leave the apostate church to leave it purged and purified. That is not the case. Were that true, Ezekiel 9 would not literally BEGIN at His once church, His once sanctuary, the once House of Jacob. 5T 211.

 

The Lord will give His message to those who have walked in accordance with the light they have had, and will recognize them as true and faithful, according to the measurement of God. These men will take the place of those who, having light and knowledge, have walked not in the way of the Lord but in the imagination of their own unsanctified hearts. {13MR 10.2}

 

Note by Ron: Statements like the above make it “appear” that the once “church militant” is finally purged and purified by the bad leaving and their being replaced by others who are faithful—leaving the church as finally faithful. Weighed against all the evidence and interpreted so that nothing contradicts, that is not the correct interpretation. Why? Because if that interpretation were correct, Ezekiel 9 would never BEGIN at His church, His Sanctuary. 5T 211. Ellen White is speaking of those who go out of the message, not out of an apostate church, though some who are errant will leave the apostate church for the wrong reasons just as has always happened from its inception. End note by Ron.

 

     We are now living in the last days, when the truth must be spoken, when in reproof and warning it must be given to the world, irrespective of consequences. If there are some who will become offended and turn from the truth, we must bear in mind that there were those who did the same in Christ's day. When the greatest Teacher the world has ever known spoke the truth, many of His disciples became offended and walked no more with Him. {13MR 10.3}

 

Note by Ron: Some left “went out” from Jesus and His disciples, the true Reformers. That is what Ellen White means by some leaving and being replaced by others who will prove faithful. Some who join the True Reformers will become offended and walk no more with them and their leader Christ Jesus. End note by Ron.

 

     But truth will bear away the victory. Those who will maintain the truth, irrespective of consequences, will offend some whose hearts are not in harmony with the truth as it is in Jesus. These persons cherish theories of their own, which are not the truth. The truth does not harmonize with their sentiments, and rather than give up their own ideas, they walk away from those who obey the truth. But there are men who will receive the truth, and these will take the places made vacant by those who become offended and leave the truth. {13MR 10.4}

 

Note by Ron: Notice that Ellen White said some will leave the “truth.” That is the true context of the statement. The disciples who separated from the apostate church, said that some went out from them; they went out of the truth. Going out from the truth is different from going out from an apostate church that has removed God, by removing pillar doctrines. End note by Ron.

 

     "They went out from us, but they were not of us" [1 John 2:19].

 

 

Men of true Christian principle will take their place, and will become faithful, trustworthy householders, to advocate the Word of God in its true bearings and in its simplicity. The Lord will work so that the disaffected ones will be separated from the true and loyal ones. Those who, like Cornelius, will fear God and glorify Him, will take their places. The ranks will not be diminished. Those who are firm and true will close up the vacancies that are made by those who become offended and apostatize. {13MR 11.1}

 

Note by Ron: What is the parallel involving Cornelius? Cornelius was converted by Peter, into the Christian church and out of the apostate Temple organization. This is the TYPE as it applies to the ANTITYPE at the end-time. A final remnant goes forth OUT OF JERUSALEM AS WELL AS OUT OF BABYLON, Isaiah 37:31, 32 and Revelation 18. End note by Ron.

 

     By the wonderful works of God, Cornelius was led to bring his energetic, faithful life into connection with the disciples of Christ. Thus shall it be in the last days. Many will prize the wisdom of God above any earthly advantage, and will obey the Word of God as the supreme standard. These will be led to great light. These will come to the knowledge of the truth, and will seek to get this light of truth before those of their acquaintance who like themselves are anxious for the truth. Thus they become conscientious light bearers to the world. Themselves constrained by the love of God, they will constrain others, and will improve every opportunity to invite and urge others to come and see the beauty of the truth, and to give their abilities to advance the work of God. {13MR 11.2}

 

Note by Ron: The parallel with Cornelius and his connection with the disciples of Christ, is that of connecting with True Reformers today, and not any apostate new movement. The disciples were indeed True Reformers (Protestants) as was Christ. End note.

 

     There is work of a superior order to be done. A clear understanding of business matters will qualify men to conduct business for the work and cause of God, to keep it upon a high and holy basis. The missionary work, in all its branches, needs wise, careful, judicious men, who have ability and experience to act in the capacity of treasurers--men who will prove trustworthy in bringing the truth before the men in the highways, and who will bring all the advantages of their experience, their soundness of principle, and their unbending integrity and uprightness into the work to which they are appointed. Faith unfeigned in its largeness and fullness is wanted just now.--Manuscript 97, 1898. (Written from Sunnyside, Cooranbong, N.S.W., August 11, 1898.)

 

Note by Ron: Those who “brought in” a new movement that removed pillar doctrines, do not meet the description of “unbending integrity and uprightness.” End note.


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}

 

Are you obliged to go to hear the leaders of the new movement that has removed God? No! No more so than were Jesus and His followers obliged to go to the apostate Temple to hear their errors.

 

Ellen White says in over one-hundred statements that Adventists are moving in the same path of disobedience as did God’s first chosen people, the Jews. Here are a few examples:

 

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 warning:

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.
