201. My Vision on the Church Militant

Part 4


October 27, 2018


http://omega77.tripod.com/myvisionchurchmilitantpt4.htm


Rev 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.


Rev 14:12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. 


Gal 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:



Part four in this series on my vision concerning the church militant, has to do with the enigmas by way of serious contradictions and outright denials of historic Adventism that are rife today in the new movement masquerading as professing Seventh-day Adventism. I was shown that most Adventists have no idea of the extent of the infiltration of the Jesuits, and the serious work they are doing within the new movement to dismantle the original faith of Seventh-day Adventists.


It is necessary that I repeat older supportive data to any new concepts for the following reasons:

·       The benefit of new readers.

·       Review for those who have read the weight of evidence in the past.

·       As support for new concepts I have been shown. No new evidence is supposed to contradict the old, but must build on it for the reason that all truth is a chain of contingent knowledge.

 

One of the most blatant efforts has to do with the concept of Last Generation Theology, from whence derives the biblical teaching that God’s final remnant will be KEEPING the commandments of God. Revelation 14:12. Any teaching that suggests that we cannot keep the commandments of God, is totally subversive to the Atonement Sacrifice and an important part as to why it was made; namely, to give man the empowerment of the Divine Nature of Christ, the Holy Spirit, for overcoming. 1 Peter 1:1-4, and Romans 1:5.

 

2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.


Rom 1:5   By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: 

 

The model being pushed by the new movement is another gospel of cheap grace, which, in essence, is grace only for pardon, while grace POWER for obedience is not given equal justice. It focuses on justification while downplaying the need for sanctification.

 

Sanctification

 

1Co 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

1Th 4:3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:

1Th 4:4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

2Th 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

1Pe 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

 

It is a blatant, lying abomination to profess to be the church that has the Spirit of Prophecy, while relegating the prophet as merely being a kind lady who gave good counsel to folk of her day, and REJECTING important counsel she gave for the proper pursuits of the church.

 

It is a blatant lying abomination to claim to be the people who give the three angel’s messages of Revelation 14, who keep the commandments of God, and at the same time despise LGT (Last Generation Theology) which teaches that the final remnant will be doing just that.

 

It is a serious indictment against Laodiceans that they are told by God that he that overcomes will be saved, yet Laodicean leaders are thumbing the nose to God by bashing LGT, which is all about overcoming sin! This is yet another reason why Ezekiel 9 begins at His once church militant, His once Sanctuary; His once House of Jacob, Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 211.

 

Rev 3:21   To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 

 

The Holy Spirit gift to the church says that Laodicea is the foolish virgin state of the church, and the foolish virgins are not saved. This is another proof that Laodicea does not repent because the foolish virgins don’t repent. I was shown in vision that this is another proof perfect that Laodicea is not the noble ship that goes through to port heaven. The SS Laodicea is the once noble ship that sinks to rise no more.

 

"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.

 

The first question that some minds will ask when reading the above statements is: Why was Ellen White a member of what she called the foolish virgin state of the church? I asked the Lord that question and I was given this answer: In Ellen White’s lifetime, the church vacillated between being in the Laodicean state and efforts to overcome its lukewarm state. For example, in 1893, while Ellen White was in Australia, two men, Stanton and Caldwell published a pamphlet calling the church Babylon. Ellen White said that the church was receiving a refreshing from the Holy Spirit at that time. So, supplication for the presence of the Holy Spirit was an on and off reality. There was still opportunity for Laodicea to repent.

 

The same principle applies to Ellen White’s Testimonies, vol. 8, p. 250 statement that the church had become a harlot. It is possible for a harlot to repent, as the example of Mary Magdalene proves. But there are stages in the experience of a harlot. At first there is the flirting stage. Then fornication occurs. Finally, the harlotry of Israel and Judah caused God to divorce them. It was when they joined themselves in conspiracy/confederacy (Jer. 11:9-15) that God told Jeremiah to no longer pray for them. They had thereby committed unpardonable sin. Then God asked the question:

 

What has my beloved (bride) to do in mine house, since she has wrought lewdness with many? Jer. 11:15.

 

Jer 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

 

God showed me in vision that the SDA church militant has wrought lewdness with many since 1955, by teaching an antichrist doctrine on the human nature of Christ. That is unpardonable sin. There is no turning back from that act of treachery and betrayal of the Lord’s work, and the new movement will not turn back. Their apostasy will wax stronger until Jesus comes say Ellen White.

 

Why didn’t Ellen White leave a church that had become a harlot? Because it was possible for the harlot stage to repent. But this is not the case when a church “marries” or joins itself in association, counsel/council, girding and/or conspiracy/confederacy with God’s enemies. Jer. 11:9-15. The only option at that degree of apostasy is “breaking in pieces,” spoken three times in Isaiah 8:9-12, to demonstrate the seriousness of this stage of harlotry. The church did not imbibe to that degree until 1955, and that is why Ellen White did not leave what she called a harlot church and a foolish virgin Laodicean church.

 

The Vacillation Ended in 1955

 

The initial stages of apostasy have always involved vacillation at first. Ellen White said Israel began her trek downward by conspiring with God’s enemies. That is exactly what the once SDA church did. In 1955, they conspired with God’s enemies, and reneged on pillar doctrines. The apostasy has been in a steady progression from that point.

 

Truth is also progressive in that it is to be ever unfolding, but the new is never to contradict the old. It is to affirm and build on the old. The apostasy of 1957 was a major paradigm shift from lukewarm Laodiceanism to cold, antichrist apostasy.

 

Things changed very drastically in 1955, when LeRoy Froom and Roy Allan Anderson met with the Evangelicals Walter Martin and Donald Grey Barnhouse. The first thing Martin protested against was the SDA book Bible Readings for the Home Circle, wherein that book stated that Christ came in the likeness of sinful flesh. The Bible says that Christ came in the likeness of sinful flesh. The SDA men acted as though they were aghast at that finding, and said they would have it changed in new editions of the book, and that change was carried out. Why would SDA’s agree to change something the Bible says; that Christ came in the likeness of sinful flesh, to wit?

 

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:

 

SDA’s have been Teaching an AntiChrist Doctrine to the Church and the World Since 1955

 

The first foray into apostasy was for SDA leaders to agree with Martin and Barnhouse that Christ did not come in our sinful nature. Then Ministry magazine, which is published for ministers of all denominations, as a testament to what SDA’s believe, was sent to tens of thousands of ministers and libraries around the world in 1957, with the following antichrist testimony which has never been repented of:

"When God became man He partook of the same moral nature that Adam possessed before the fall. Adam was created holy, and so was Christ. for He became the second Adam. "R. A. Anderson. "Human. Not Carnal." Roy Allan Anderson, Ministry, April, 1957.

LeRoy Froom’s book, Movement of Destiny, 1971, teaches that Christ took the nature of Adam BEFORE the fall.

The on-going teaching against M. L. Andreason’s Last Generation Theology, is a continuing legacy to the antichrist teaching that we cannot overcome sin this side of glorification.

SDA church leaders agreed with Martin and Barnhouse that Jesus DID NOT take the human nature of our sinful flesh, when the Bible and Ellen White say that He did. This is serious beyond words, and this heresy marks the first cold apostate stance of the once church militant, and it has not moved from that position since. The new movement has been teaching an antichrist doctrine on the human nature of Christ since 1955, for the Bible says that all who don’t believe that Christ came in the flesh—THE LIKENESS OF HUMAN FLESH, are antichrist. The Bible and Ellen White make it plain that the flesh Christ came in was sinful flesh:

 

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.

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:

 

He took upon Him our sinful nature.” Ellen G. White, Review and Herald, 12/15/96.

 

In His humanity Christ partook of our sinful fallen nature.—Bible Readings for the Home Circle, p. 116. 1914 edition.

 

You may read much more on this truth in Dr. Ralph Larson’s book, The Word Was Made Flesh at this link:

http://www.4eange.com/anglais/LIV/KOR/PDF/ENG/OTH/The%20Word%20Was%20Made%20Flesh.pdf

 

Ellen White said that the human nature of Christ is everything to us. Teaching an antichrist version on something that “is everything to us,” is as serious as it gets, for that is subversive to the highest good, crowning gift that heaven can bestow: the Atonement Sacrifice. That is not a characteristic of being lukewarm Laodicean. That is an example of Laodicea becoming cold apostate. In this sense, Ellen White’s statement that Laodicea is the foolish virgin state of the church was prophetic and was fulfilled in 1955 and since.

 

"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, IS A PROPHETIC STATEMENT foretelling exactly how Laodicea would end up. That is part of the omega heresy, and Ellen White said that it would wax stronger until Jesus comes.


God in the flesh: (Exodus 3:5.) Christ’s Humanity a Golden Chain—To redeem man, Christ became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. The humanity of the Son of God is everything to us. It is the golden linked chain which binds our souls to Christ and through Christ to God. This is to be our study. Christ was a real man, and He gave proof of His humility in becoming a man. And He was God in the flesh. {7BC 904.10}


Wax stronger "One thing it is certain is soon to be realized, the great apostasy, which is developing and increasing and waxing stronger, and will continue to do so until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout. We are to hold fast the first principles of our denominated faith, and go forward from strength to increased faith. Ever we are to keep the faith that has been substantiated by the Holy Spirit of God from the earlier events of our experience until the present time. We need now larger breadth, and deeper, more earnest, unwavering faith in the leadings of the Holy Spirit. If we needed the manifest proof of the Holy Spirit's power to confirm truth in the beginning, after the passing of the time, we need to-day all the evidence in the confirmation of the truth, when souls are departing from the faith and giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. There must not be any languishing of soul now." (E.G. White, Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, p. 57).

 

Departing from the faith once delivered to the saints, and departing from an apostate new movement are totally different things.

 

"The enemy will set everything in operation to uproot the confidence of the believers in the pillars of our faith in the messages of the past, which have placed us upon the elevated platform of eternal truth, and which have established and given character to the work. The Lord God of Israel has led out His people, unfolding to them truth of heavenly origin." "The truth for this time is precious, but those whose hearts have not been broken by falling on the Rock Christ Jesus, will not see and understand what is truth. They will accept that which pleases their ideas, and will begin to manufacture another foundation than that which is laid. They will flatter their own vanity and esteem, thinking that they are capable of removing the pillars of our faith, and replacing them with pillars they have devised. This will continue to be as long as time shall last." Notebook, Leaflets, pp. 61-62.

 

This is why Ezekiel 9 is literally fulfilled again beginning at the apostate SDA church, the once House of Jacob, His Sanctuary, 5T 211.

 

Righteousness Without a Flaw

 

What better example of how the church has REJECTED the counsel of Ellen White, than her statement that we need righteousness without a flaw. The church is teaching that such righteousness (overcoming) is absolutely impossible until glorification. But Oh, you say, not all in the church teach against that statement by Ellen White. That is true, but those who teach that lie are teaching another gospel, which is an OPEN SIN APOSTASY LIE, so that ALL MEMBERS are corporately responsible for the false gospel also being taught by the church to the world since 1955.

 

Again, what an enigma! The church claims to be the true church because it has the gift of prophecy, and then it rejects such serious counsel of its prophetess that we must have righteousness without a flaw, without shortcoming in His sight. Any sincere seeker of truth should recognize the folly of claiming to the world that the SDA church is the remnant “chosen” people church because it has the Spirit of Prophecy and keeps the commandments of God, when out of the other side of its mouth, IT IS TEACHING THAT KEEPING THE COMMANDMENTS IS IMPOSSIBLE THIS SIDE OF GLORIFICATION! Anyone with a modicum of reasoning ability should be able to see the utter foolish virgin essence of this hypocritical and fallacious position. How is it that so many are deceived by such stark and open deception?

 

In essence the Laodicean church once militant, is saying that they don’t believe God Almighty, and their prophetess that it is possible to be righteous without a flaw, and thus, in action, they call their prophetess a false prophet. But even worse, they indict God Almighty just as verily, because He says the same thing in the following verses:

 

1Jo 3:9

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Deu 18:13

Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.

1Ki 8:61

Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.

Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

2Ti 3:17

That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Jas 1:4

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

 

Gen 17:1

And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

Deu 25:15

But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

1Ch 28:9

And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

Job 36:4

For truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.

Psa 101:6

Mat 5:48

Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Luk 6:40

Jhn 17:23

I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

Rom 12:2

1Co 13:10

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Jas 1:25

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Rev 3:2

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

 

Righteousness Without a Flaw, Without Shortcoming

 

I was shown that the reason the church became Laodicean, and for the most part, remained Laodicean until it fell into omega apostasy in 1955, is because it came to disbelieve and rejected the conditions for salvation. You can belong to the new movement for an easy, cheap grace religion, but you will be lost. All the formally organized churches of the world have apostatized to make religion easy in order to recruit members and to fill the coffers with money, but that is the way to hell. Folk will pay large sums of money to be taught the Doctrine of the Nicolaitans—only believe.

 

SDA doctors paid Desmond Ford upwards of three million dollars to teach them his peace and safety lies. The lies of Isaiah 56:12. Some are paying Walter Veith a good wage to persuade them to super glue themselves to a pew in the apostate once SDA church militant no matter what it has done, does, or will do. Many black folk are paying Andrew Henriques a good wage to tell them all they have to do is listen to him and they can remain a MEMBER of the apostate church and not be corporately responsible, when the Spirit of Prophecy and the Bible teach contrary to his rejection of corporate responsibility.

 

Do you think that Walter Veith, Andrew Henriques, Vance Ferrell, Colin Standish, and Doug Batchelor, for a few examples, are not aware that if they called for separation of MEMBERSHIP from the apostate new movement, that their numbers and inflow of cash would greatly diminish? Are you aware that all who support them and like ministries are corporately responsible for every abomination of the apostate new movement we are to sigh and cry for because these men do not make a correct response to the apostasy in light of the fact that it is IMPOSSIBLE to unite with the corrupt and remain/become pure? Every time I listen to these men, I think how they are corporately responsible for all the abominations of the apostate new movement they extoll and/or support MEMBERSHIP in.

 

Vance Ferrell gives the foolish counsel that if your church is not what you think it should be, try to find another church, but if you can’t, go anyway, and just read your bible during the service.

 

None of these (above) men teach corporate responsibility. Wieland and Short went to SDA church leaders in 1950 with a thick booklet on the Biblical principles of corporate responsibility and the leaders rejected it outright! God showed me in vision that the reason corporate responsibility is rejected is because it demands separation from open sin apostasy, and there is more money in not instructing the people that it is necessary to separate from any church that is in open sin apostasy.

 

"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.  

 

"We should never give sanction to sin by our words, our deeds, our silence or our presence." Desire of Ages, 152.

 

Walter Veith says to keep silent about the apostasy and just teach the three angel’s messages. He says to maintain your presence at the stinking new movement by putting a clothespin on your nose and super gluing yourself to a pew there.

 

Jesus knew His people would do this. That is why He and His followers separated from the apostate church before the A.D. 70 literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9, which began in A.D. 27, when the first act of Christ’s ministry was to “gather out” those who would take the gospel to the world. Desire of Ages, 232.

 

"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 he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God.  9But 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. 285, 286.

 

"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. 

 

 "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. 

 

"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.

 

All faithful true reformers will teach the verity of Isaiah 37:31, 32. And the reason those verses are true is because of the omega of apostasy of the new movement that formed “among” within, Seventh-day Adventism.

 

Ellen White said that all the ancient prophets wrote more for us than the Jews and that their instruction is for us unto the end of the world is come. Do you believe her? If you do, you must believe Isaiah 37:31, 32. This is no light matter. This is as serious as it gets. But folk continue to cherry pick what they prefer to believe to their own damnation.

PROLEPSIS PROPHETIC STATEMENT:

 

Here is the Spirit of Prophecy prophesied prolepsis statement regarding the final fate of that once Noble Ship. This is a major LYNCHPIN to my warning message. Can you explain it away? Are you a passenger on this once NOBLE SHIP, that is about to sink to rise no more?

 

NOTICE WHO SEPARATES FROM WHOM:

 

"Jesus sends HIS PEOPLE a message of warning to prepare them for his coming. To the prophet John was made known the closing work in the great plan of man's redemption. He beheld an angel flying 'in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him for the hour of his Judgment is come and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters [Rev. 14:6, 7.].

The angel represented in prophecy as delivering this message,  symbolizes a class of faithful men, who, obedient to the promptings of God's Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message was not to be committed to the religious leaders of the people. They had failed to preserve their connection with God, and had REFUSED THE LIGHT FROM HEAVEN therefore they WERE NOT of the number described by the apostle Paul: 'But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day we are not of the night nor of darkness' [1 Thess. 5:4, 5]. 

The watchmen upon the walls of Zion should be the first to catch the tidings of the Saviour's advent, the first to lift their voices to proclaim him near, the first to warn the people to prepare for his coming. But they were at ease, dreaming of peace and safety, while the people were asleep in their sins. Jesus saw HIS CHURCH, like the barren fig-tree, covered with pretentious leaves, yet destitute of precious fruit. There was a boastful observance of the forms of religion, while the spirit of true humility, penitence and faith--which alone could render the service acceptable to God--was lacking. Instead of the graces of the Spirit, there were manifested pride, formalism, vainglory, selfishness, oppression. A BACKSLIDING CHURCH closed their eyes to the signs of the times. God did not forsake them, or suffer his faithfulness to fail but they departed from him, and SEPARATED THEMSELVES from his love. As they REFUSED TO COMPLY WITH THE CONDITIONS, his promises were NOT FULFILLED to them."  E.G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy, Vol. 4, pp. 199-200 [The 1884 edition of The Great Controversy, 199, 200].

 

 Note these important delineations in the above statement:

·       Ellen White is addressing HIS PEOPLE.

·       Ellen White is addressing those to whom God committed the EVERLASTING GOSPEL of Revelation 14.

·       Ellen White is defining the angel represented in prophecy as symbolizing a class of faithful men.

·       Ellen White is saying emphatically that the final Loud Cry message is delivered NOT BY THE LEADERS OF THE SDA CHURCH, but by a class of faithful men, because the leaders had failed to preserve their connection with God and had refused light from heaven!

·       Ellen White is addressing "watchmen upon the walls of Zion," NOT FALLEN BABYLON!

·       Twice Ellen White mentions HIS CHURCH, NOT FALLEN BABYLON.

·       It is the MEMBERS of said church that SEPARATE FROM GOD, AND THAT IS WHY WE HAVE TO SEPARATE FROM THEM OR BE CORPORATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR APOSTASY.

·       The above reasons are why there is another coming out of a faithful remnant FROM APOSTATE JERUSALEM AS WELL AS FALLEN BABYLON.

·       Isa 37:31   And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward: 

·       Isa 37:32   For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this. 

Ellen White is addressing a BACKSLIDING CHURCH whose leaders and laity alike failed and rejected light from heaven and who refused to comply with the conditions so that God's promises are not fulfilled to them. Consider the following commentary on the 1884 Great Controversy that the above statement is quoted from:

Consider for a few moments the chapter in the first edition of Great Controversy, Volume IV, published by Pacific Press in 1884. In Chapter XXVII, ‘The Snares of Satan,’ you find that about four pages in the latter part of the chapter were omitted from the later editions of Great Controversy. These four pages are to be found in Testimonies to Ministers, pages 472 to 475. The information contained in these four pages is very valuable to Seventh-day Adventists and was very appropriately included in the first edition of Great Controversy, Volume IV, which when it was published was like the other volumes considered to be A MESSAGE ESPECIALLY TO SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS, and to [all] Christian people sympathizing with them in beliefs and aims.” W. C. White, Selected Messages, Appendix C, pp. 452, 453.

 

"The church may appear as about to fall, but it does not fall. It remains, while the sinners IN ZION will be sifted out--the chaff separated from the precious wheat [AFTER THE CLOSE OF PROBATIONARY TIME--CHRIST'S OBJECT LESSONS 72]. This is a terrible ordeal, but nevertheless it must take place. None but those who have been overcoming by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony will be found with the loyal and true, without spot or stain of sin, without guile in their mouths...

The REMNANT that purify their souls by obeying the truth gather strength from the trying process, exhibiting the beauty of holiness amid the surrounding apostasy. All these, He says, 'I have graven . . . upon the palms of my hands' (Isa. 49:16)...

That which God required of Adam before his fall was perfect obedience to His law. God requires now what He required of Adam, perfect obedience, righteousness without a flaw, without shortcoming in His sight....We cannot do this without that faith that brings Christ's righteousness into daily practice." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Vol. 2, 380.

 

The Church That Appears as About to Fall

 

Ellen White says that the Laodicean state of the church is the state of the foolish virgins. When that church falls, BECAUSE FOOLISH VIRGINS FALL, the church militant appears as about to fall, but of course the church that does not fall is Zion, the bride (Isaiah Chapter 62). It is Zion that gives a shaking message that shakes Laodiceans off the middle of the fence to either side of the fence. Zion is synonymous with Philadelphia, the third angel, true reformers, and the 144,000. It is the true reformers that officiate the shaking.

 

How could the foolish virgin church of Laodicea effect a shaking? Only in the sense that she has committed such abdominal open sin apostasy since 1955. It is the True Reformers that expose her apostasy, and thus it is they who cause the shaking that is a terrible ordeal.

 

It is not the new movement that appears as about to fall because it does not fall. Ellen White clearly stated that "nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the new movement,” so it will never repent, just as Laodicea of old never repented on a corporate basis. So how could it appear to fall? The real church that appears as about to fall is the church in the wilderness that is surrounded by its enemies at the very end, just before that church triumphant is delivered by the voice of God. Ellen White parallels that church as about to fall with the experience of Jacob, when he was going forth to meet his brother Essau and his armies. In Great Controversy, pp. 616, and 630, Ellen White refers to the church that appears as about to fall in this context. So, SDA leaders have taken that statement totally out of context, to try to convince its members that the apostate new movement will appear as about to fall but won't--no matter what it does.

 

 "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, Vol. 1, 204-205. 

 

How often we have read over the description of Christ’s baptism with no thought that there was any particular significance in it for us. But it means everything to us. It means that there can be no excuse for our living in alienation from God. You may claim much leniency because of your human nature, of your temptations and trials, and seek to excuse yourself for sin because of inherited tendencies, but Christ gave himself in behalf of humanity, and there is no reason for failure. Christ bore temptations such as you will never be called upon to bear. He suffered as you will never suffer. He knew all your griefs, he has carried your sorrows. He has made it possible for you to be an overcomer. Do not say it is impossible for you to overcome. Do not say, “It is my nature to do thus and so, and I cannot do otherwise. I have inherited weaknesses that make me powerless before temptation.” We know you cannot overcome in your own strength; but help has been laid upon One who is mighty to save. When God gave his only begotten Son, he provided everything essential to your salvation. And “he that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” The resources of Heaven are open to us. We should believe this precious truth. And when the enemy comes in like a flood to discourage and to dishearten, the Spirit of the Lord will raise up a standard against him. When sorrows press you, cling closer to the Mighty One. Instead of faltering and losing faith, praise God that Jesus has died for you. A brother came into meeting at one time and related his difficulties, and trials, and sorrows. I said to him, “Brother, haven’t you anything to praise God for? has not Jesus died that you might live? Is there any reason that you should be discouraged?” How does Heaven look upon our doubts and discouragements, when God has given his beloved Son to die on Calvary’s cross, that we might have peace in this life, and everlasting joy in the life to come? How does Heaven regard us when we speak and act as though it were a very difficult path through which God was leading us? How must it seem to the angels when we act as though we doubted whether it would pay to be a Christian? All Heaven was poured out to us in Christ, and he that spared not his own Son will not withhold any good thing from those who walk uprightly.” {ST June 17, 1889, par. 11}

 

Which Ship

 

Defective Ship: We can know that if a ship has false teaching it will not survive the rigors of the ocean of strife and turmoil: "You have had too great confidence in the ability of these men. A ship may be sound in nearly every respect but if there is one defect,--a bit of timber worm-eaten,--the lives of all on board are imperiled." E.G. White, Testimonies, vol. 4, 322.

 

Ship Drifting at Sea Without Chart or Compass: "The facts concerning the real condition of the professed people of God, speak more loudly than their profession, and make it evident that some power has cut the cable that anchored them to the Eternal Rock, and that they are drifting away to sea, without chart or compass." E.G. White, Selected Messages, vol. 2, p. 128, (Review and Herald, Vol. 2, p. 231). (Also see Fundamentals of Christian Education, p. 348).

 

"The people to whom God has entrusted eternal interests, the depositaries of truth pregnant with eternal results, the keepers of light that is to illuminate the whole world, have lost their bearings." Testimonies to Ministers, p. 397.

 

"Every ship sailing the sea of life needs to have the divine Pilot on board but when storms arise, when tempests threaten, many persons push their Pilot overboard, and commit their bark into the hand of finite man, or try to steer it themselves. Then disaster and wreckage generally follow, and the Pilot is blamed for running them into such dangerous waters." E.G. White, Fundamentals of Christian Education, p. 348.

 

Is the Pilot on board the SDA New Movement, New Organization Ship described in Selected Messages, vol. 1, 204-5? Page 205 says He [God] has been removed!

 

Noble Ship #1: "I lately read of a NOBLE SHIP that was plowing its way across the sea, when at midnight, with a terrific crash, it struck upon a rock; the passengers were awakened only to see with horror their hopeless condition, and with the ship they sank to rise no more. The MAN AT THE HELM [VERSUS CHRIST] had mistaken the beacon light, and hundreds of souls were at a moment's warning launched into eternity." E.G. White, Selected Messages, vol. 2, 128.

 

The ship (church militant) that was once noble, the SS Philadelphia, became the SS Laodicea. She sinks to rise no more, because she is also the SS Foolish Virgin ship which does not repent. Only individuals within her borders may repent if they do so when they learn of her apostasy. We are responsible for KNOWLEDGE WHEN WE HEAR IT.

 

Noble Ship #2: "There is no need to doubt, to be fearful that the work will not succeed. God is at the head of the work, and He will set everything in order. If matters need adjusting at the head of the work, God will attend to that, and work to right every wrong. Let us have faith that God is going to carry the noble ship which bears the people of God safely into port." E.G. White, Selected Messages, vol. 2, 390.

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.

·       When a church betrays sacred trusts by forming a new movement that removes God (1SM 204-205), it is no longer THE HEAD OF THE WORK AT WHICH GOD WILL SET EVERYTHING IN ORDER.

·       God does not right every wrong in such a new movement. He leaves it, as Christ separated from the apostate church of His day.

·       The noble ship which bore the people of God in the PREFIGURE, was the home churches established by the disciples. That is the noble ship God works with in the antitype.

 

We were never to step off the foundation laid by Philadelphia, to form a new movement that has removed God by removing pillar doctrines. That act betrayed sacred trusts and thus proved unfaithfulness to the work of the Lord.

 

"We cannot now step off the foundation that God has established. We cannot now enter into any new organization for this would mean apostasy from the truth.--Manuscript 1290, 1905. Selected Messages, vol. 2, 390.

 

In light of all the statements involving a ship, we must interpret them all so that none contradict. The best way to achieve this goal is to look for qualifying words. In the above statement the qualifying words are NOBLE SHIP and THE PEOPLE OF GOD. Who are the people of God? Those who keep His commandments and heed the Laodicean message.

 

Change Leaders and Know it Not:

 

Change Leaders: "There is manifested on the part of men in responsible positions an unwillingness to confess where they have been in the wrong and their neglect is working disaster, not only to themselves, but to the churches....You will be left to make mistakes of a similar character, you will continue to lack wisdom, and will call sin righteousness and righteousness sin. The multitude of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will change leaders, and not know that you have done so." E.G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 2, 448.

 

Change Leaders: "Men in positions of responsibility are in danger of changing leaders. This I know, for it has been plainly revealed to me." E.G. White, Series B, #2, p. 48.

 

Change Leaders: "Men who might have stood in clear light, doing valiant service as ministers of the gospel and medical missionaries, have been accepting false theories and sophistries which originated with the father of lies, and yet they do not realize that they have changed." E.G. White, Special Testimonies, Series B, #7, p. 13-16, November 20, 1905.

 

Change Leaders: "Satan will set up his hellish banner right in your homes, and you will be so blinded to the real nature of his deceptions that you reverence it as the banner of Christ." E.G. White, The 1888 Materials, p. 505.

 

Change Leaders: "They will not recognize him [Satan] as their enemy, that old serpent, but they will consider him a FRIEND, one who is doing a good work." Testimonies, vol. 5, p. 294.

 

Change Leaders: Satan has laid his plans to undermine our faith in the history of the cause and work of God. I am deeply in earnest as I write this. Satan is working with men in prominent positions to sweep away the foundation of our faith. Shall we allow this to be done, brethren?" E.G. White, Review and Herald, Nov. 19, 1903.

 

Change Leaders if Mistakes are not Admitted and Changed: "If when the Lord reveals your errors you do not repent or make confession, his providence will bring you over the ground again and again. You will be left to make mistakes of a similar character, you will continue to lack wisdom, and will call sin righteousness, and righteousness sin. The multitude of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will CHANGE LEADERS, AND NOT KNOW THAT YOU HAVE DONE SO." E.G. White, Review and Herald, vol. 2, p. 449.

 

Change Leaders: "Satan has COME IN with his specious temptations, and has led the professed followers of Christ away from the [PILOT] Leader (Christ), classing them with the foolish virgins." Testimonies to Ministers, p. 130.

 

Change Leaders: "Refusing to follow in the path of obedience, they transferred their allegiance to Satan. The enemy rejoiced in his success in effacing the divine image from the minds of the people that God had chosen as His representatives. Through [ECUMENICAL] intermarriage with idolaters and CONSTANT ASSOCIATION WITH THEM [Isa. 8:9-20], Satan brought about that for which he had long been working,--a national apostasy." Fundamentals to Christian Education, p. 449.

 

Change Leaders: "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.

 

It is a blatant lying abomination to claim to be the remnant 144,000, whom God defines as being WITHOUT FAULT, and at the same time teach that such faultless living is not possible until glorification. And that is exactly what new movement Adventism is teaching.

 

Rev 14:12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. 

 

Rev 14:1   And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. 

Rev 14:2   And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 

Rev 14:3   And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. 

Rev 14:4   These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. 

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

 

The gospel of truth is all that Jesus did for us so that we can overcome sin. But there is another gospel that is teaching that we cannot overcome sin; that the Holy Spirit is impotent in enabling us to be able to withstand the temptations of Satan.

 

TWO DIFFERENT GOSPELS are being taught to the world and those being converted to the new movement. This is why God says that the once SDA church militant will be brought down to hell, And, that it crosses sea and land to make proselytes and makes them twice the child of hell that the fake new movement SDA’s are.

 

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

 

Of those who boast of their light and yet fail to walk in it Christ says, "But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment than for you. And thou, Capernaum [Seventh-day Adventists, who have had great light], which art exalted unto heaven [in point of privilege], shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works which have been done in thee had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day." Ellen G. White, Review and Herald Articles, Aug. 1, 1893. [THE BRACKETED COMMENTS ARE BY ELLEN WHITE.] {LDE 48.2}

 

Gal 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

 

Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

 

Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

 

Strong’s meaning of accursed in Gal 1:9:

http://www.blbclassic.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G331&t=KJV

 

1.     a thing set up or laid by in order to be kept

1.     specifically, an offering resulting from a vow, which after being consecrated to a god was hung upon the walls or columns of the temple, or put in some other conspicuous place

2.     a thing devoted to God without hope of being redeemed, and if an animal, to be slain; therefore a person or thing doomed to destruction

1.     a curse

Preaching, teaching of a false gospel, is open sin that is accursed, as is the person that commits this spiritual crime. All MEMBERS of such a “church,” are corporately responsible for this curse. As long as you are a member of such a church, you are accursed, consigned to damnation, destruction, and loss of eternal life. The Lord showed me that this is the pure truth of the matter.

 

The gospel is everything that Christ sacrificed to redeem man from his fallen condition. A false gospel misrepresents that sacrifice, and is like speaking against the Holy Ghost, which is unpardonable sin. This I was shown. And this is what is taking place within new movement Adventism. This is what Walter Veith instructs you to super glue yourself to—a pew in the false gospel new movement which is slated to be brought down to hell.

 

New movement Adventism is teaching the false gospel that overcoming sin by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus, the Holy Ghost, is impossible, and they mock LGT and all who teach it as they still mock M. L. Andreason who taught that truth, and they might as well Mock God, the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy that teach that truth as well.

 

There are some in the once church militant who still teach the truth, but they are corporately responsible for those who are teaching a false gospel. The sacred tithe goes as well to support those who are teaching the false gospel.

 

"There are fearful woes for those who preach the truth, but are not sanctified by it, and also for those who consent to receive and maintain the unsanctified to minister to them in word and doctrine." Testimonies, Vol 1, p. 261-62.

 

"It would be poor policy to support from the treasury of God those who really mar and injure His work, and who are constantly lowering the standard of Christianity." Testimonies, Vol 3, p. 553.

 

"As long as the truth is progressive, the claims of God rest upon men to give of that which He has entrusted to them for this very purpose." Testimonies, Vol 4, p. 469.

 

Given the fact that pillar doctrines have been removed by the new movement (1SM 204-205), the truth is on a regressive, downward trek to hell as it is taught by the new movement. Those who love and worship the social club new movement, masquerading as the church militant will be brought down to hell in the next literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9.

 

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}

 

It is pure, unadulterated bigotry to claim to be the commandment-keeping remnant, while retaining ANY PERSON AS A MEMBER that claims it is impossible to overcome this side of glorification. Fact is that a large majority of the new movement are teaching this heresy. Ellen White and Jesus and John the Baptist would call this blasphemy by its right name: BIGOTRY perpetrated by a generation of dumb-dog vipers. Isaiah 56:10-12 and the following verses.

 

Mat 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Mat 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

Mat 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

Luk 3:7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

 

Walter Veith’s solution? Just super glue yourself to a pew at the apostate new movement social club, and teach the three angel’s messages ONLY. Don’t protest as Jesus, John the Baptist and the disciples did; don’t even TRY to REPUDIATE it as Ellen White instructed us to. 1SM 205. Don’t bother with Isaiah 58:2, and Ezekiel Chapters 2 and 3, wherein we are told that the blood of all we could warn, but don’t, will be on our backs, and Ellen White said we all have the same responsibility as Ezekiel, within our sphere of influence.

 

So far as his opportunities extend, every one who has received the light of truth is under the same solemn and fearful responsibility as was the prophet of Israel, to whom the word of the Lord came, saying: "Son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.  When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.  Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity, but thou has delivered thy soul.”  Eze 33:7-9.  The Great Controversy,  p. 459.

 

Legalism--There are those who profess to serve God, while they rely upon their own efforts to obey His law, to form a right character, and secure salvation. Their hearts are not moved by any deep sense of the love of Christ, but they seek to perform the duties of the Christian life as that which God requires of them in order to gain heaven. Such religion is worth nothing. When Christ dwells in the heart, the soul will be so filled with His love, with the joy of communion with Him, that it will cleave to Him; and in the contemplation of Him, self will be forgotten. Love to Christ will be the spring of action. Those who feel the constraining love of God, do not ask how little may be given to meet the requirements of God; they do not ask for the lowest standard, but aim at perfect conformity to the will of their Redeemer. With earnest desire they yield all and manifest an interest proportionate to the value of the object which they seek. A profession of Christ without this deep love is mere talk, dry formality, and heavy drudgery.  {SC 44.2}

 

When apostate leaders and their patrons say that it is impossible to overcome, they make a liar out of God and the prophet they claim as constituting their “church” as the “chosen remnant.” In essence they are calling Ellen White a false prophet. But it gets far worse. They are calling God a false God, because He gave the commandments and said to keep them. He even instructed us to be perfect.

 

Why Folk Choose to Remain in Apostate Churches

 

When Israel apostatized by conspiring with God’s enemies, Jeremiah chapter 7 and 11, God instructed Jeremiah not to pray for them and if he did, God would not hear his prayers. Ellen White quoted the apostles as saying this state of things will exist at the end-time. We are there friends. But here is some of the reasons God’s people choose to remain at the brothel social club no matter what it does:

 

COUNTERPART: "The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants, 'Pray not thou for this people [Jer. 7:16 and 11:9-15], neither lift up cry nor prayer for them neither make intercession to me for I will not hear thee.' The prophet thus describes the sins which had called forth this fearful denunciation: 'The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means and my people love to have it so and what will ye do in the end thereof?' 'From the least of them even unto the greatest of them, every one is given to covetousness and from the prophet even unto the priest, every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace.' The apostles declare that this state of things will find its COUNTERPART in the last days. Many have a form of godliness, but in their daily life deny the power thereof. They have ceased to be convicted of their sins or alarmed at their state. They say in their hearts, 'The church is flourishing. Peace and spiritual prosperity are within her borders.' The words of the prophet may well apply to these self-deceivers, 'They have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them." E. G. White, Second Advent Review and Sabbath Herald,  11-07-82.

 

Have you ceased to be convicted of your sins and the open sin apostasy of the once church militant? Do you believe every specification of the above statement? What you have read in this document is the shaking message. There is no other. The shaking is a terrible ordeal, but it must be heeded. We are responsible for light as soon as we hear it. If we don’t heed it, the seriousness of it all wears off and we will fall into the class of the foolish virgins who are lost.  Will you hear and heed today?
