207. My Vision on Walter Veith & Francois du Plessis on Overcoming Sin


November 8, 2018

1Jo 1:8   If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

1Jo 1:10   If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.



On Sabbath, November 3, 2018, I listened to a video by Walter Veith and Francois du Plessis, on which they were discussing the Spirit of Prophecy and the Bible on the issue of overcoming sin. They were not exactly mocking the prospect of overcoming sin, but they were musing and somewhat jesting about the plausibility of man’s need to overcome sin this side of glorification. Their message is that it is impossible to overcome all sin this side of glorification, and they twist Bible and Spirit of Prophecy statements to arrive at their blasphemous conclusions. I sought the Lord in prayer as to how to respond to this serious error amongst God’s people. This document is the answer I received.

 

I found this issue most perplexing as I recalled Ellen White’s admonition that we must take the Bible “just as it reads, or we will be taken in a snare.” It was fully obvious that these men were not following the counsel of Ellen White in this regard. So I prayed that God would give me light regarding the Bible verses these men were obviously interpreting according to their own view, rather than taking them “just as they read.”

 

Every child of fallen Adam must, through the transforming grace of Christ, become obedient to all God’s requirements. Many close their eyes to the plainest teachings of His Word because the cross stands directly in the way. If they lift it, they must appear singular in the eyes of the world; and they hesitate and question and search for some excuse whereby they may shun the cross. Satan is ever ready, and he presents plausible reasons why it would not be best to obey the Word of God just as it reads. Thus souls are fatally deceived.” {FW 41.2}

 

Whenever the study of the Scriptures is entered upon without a prayerful, humble, teachable spirit, the plainest and simplest as well as the most difficult passages will be wrested from their true meaning. The papal leaders select such portions of Scripture as best serve their purpose, interpret to suit themselves, and then present these to the people, while they deny them the privilege of studying the Bible and understanding its sacred truths for themselves. The whole Bible should be given to the people just as it reads. It would be better for them not to have Bible instruction at all than to have the teaching of the Scriptures thus grossly misrepresented. {DD 7.4}

·       Notice that when you watch the video in question, neither man offered a prayer before entering their discussion. Thus they wrested the plainest simplest passages from their true meaning.

·       The whole Bible should be given to the people just as it reads. It would be better for them not to have Bible instruction at all than to have the teaching of the Scriptures thus grossly misrepresented. {DD 7.4}

 

Sunday a.m., Nov. 4, the Lord gave me a vision on the verses and certain Ellen White statements these men interpreted very differently than they read. I relate in this vision what God showed to me on this most serious issue which is conditional to one’s salvation.

 

Veith and du Plessis use the following verses, as do many others who wrest the Scriptures to their own damnation, to try to prove that we can never overcome sin this side of glorification.


1Jo 1:8   If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

1Jo 1:10   If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.


I was shown that the above verses means and/or DO NOT MEAN the following:

1.    They DO NOT mean that we cannot overcome sin until glorification.

2.    They DO NOT mean that if we overcome sin that the truth is not in us if we say we have overcome sin by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit who does the works in and through us.

3.    They DO NOT mean that if we overcome sin that we can regard ourselves having holy flesh before glorification.

4.    We can never say we have no sin because we all sinned in Adam, but we all can be redeemed from all sin by Christ and the gift of His Holy Spirit empowerment. However, we have a part to play by cooperating by way of prayer, Bible study and dying moment by moment to self, and thus abiding in Christ, and so living that He can abide in us.


The Meaning of Being Born Again


The concept held by most of mainstream Christianity as to what constitutes the “born again” experience, is to confess your sins and then to rely on the blood of Christ’s Atonement to go on pardoning a continuum of sin, as though His robe is to cover sins and save “in sin,” rather than “from sin,” which is supported by the same verses Walter Veith and Francois du Plessis use to “prove” that we cannot overcome sin this side of glorification. This is also the old/new gospel now taught by the new movement which formed “among” within, professing Seventh-day Adventism.


Babylon has taught the errant gospel of cheap grace for centuries. Their teaching is that God’s grace covers all continued sins, and that this is what Paul meant when he said that salvation is not of works, but grace, lest any man should boast. God’s grace is defined by Ellen White as the Holy Spirit.


They must have His grace, the Spirit of Christ, to help their infirmities, or they cannot form a Christian character. Jesus loves to have us come to Him, just as we are—sinful, helpless, dependent.” Faith and Works, p. 38.

 

There must be a power working from within, a new life from above, before man can be changed from sin to holiness. That power is Christ. His grace [the Spirit of Christ] alone can quicken the lifeless faculties of the soul, and attract it to God, to holiness.” (ST, May 28, 1902, par. 3).

 

Our Dispositions Unchanged

 

     If you would be a saint in heaven you must first be a saint on earth. The traits of character you cherish in life will not be changed by death or by the resurrection. You will come up from the grave with the same disposition you manifested in your home and in society. Jesus does not change the character at His coming. The work of transformation must be done now. Our daily lives are determining our destiny. Defects of character must be repented of and overcome through the grace of Christ, and a symmetrical character must be formed while in this probationary state, that we may be fitted for the mansions above.--13MR 82 (1891).  {LDE 295.1}

 

The Glory that the Father gave to Christ is given to us: “Jesus is waiting to breathe upon all his disciples, and give them the inspiration of his sanctifying spirit, and transfuse the vital influence from himself to his people . . . Christ is to live in his human agents, and work through their faculties, and act through their capabilities. Their will must be submitted to His will, they must act with His Spirit, that it may be no more they that live, but Christ that liveth in them. Jesus is seeking to impress upon them the thought that in giving His Holy Spirit He is giving to them the glory which the Father has given Him, that He and His people may be one in God.” Signs of the Times, October 3, 1892, par. 4.

 

Christ gives them the breath of His own Spirit, the life of His own Life.” Desire of Ages, p. 827, par. 3.

 

The Holy Spirit is the breath of life in the soul. The impartation of the Spirit is the impartation of the life of Christ. It imbues the receiver with the attributes of Christ.” Desire of Ages, p. 805.

 

The work of the holy Spirit is immeasurably great. It is from this source that power and efficiency come to the worker for God; and the holy Spirit is the comforter, as the personal presence of Christ to the soul. He who looks to Christ in simple, childlike faith, is made a partaker of the divine nature through the agency of the holy Spirit. When led by the Spirit of God, the Christian may know that he is made complete in him who is the head of all things. As Christ was glorified on the day of Pentecost, so will he again be glorified in the closing work of the gospel, when he shall prepare a people to stand the final test, in the closing conflict of the great controversy. The prophet describes the enemy’s plan of battle saying:” {RH November 29, 1892, par. 3}

 

 “They have one God and one Saviour; and one Spirit—the Spirit of Christ—is to bring unity into their ranks.” Testimonies, Vol. 9, p. 189.

 

Our Security: “Christ has made every provision for us to be strong. He has given us His Holy Spirit, whose office is to bring to our remembrance all the promises that Christ has made, that we may have peace and a sweet sense of forgiveness. If we will but keep our eyes fixed on the Saviour and trust in His power, we shall be filled with a sense of security; for the righteousness of Christ will become our righteousness.” My Life Today, p. 45.


What is Cheap Grace?


Cheap grace is the belief in PARDON ONLY, that grace covers a continuum of wilful sinning, while the Bible and Ellen White define grace as POWER, AS WELL, for obedience.


1Jo 1:9  “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  This IS NOT an invitation to go on sinning and confessing sin. That is presuming upon the grace of Christ. I was shown that presumption occurs when one wilfully, knowingly sins, while presuming upon the pardoning grace of Christ. I was also shown that this type of sinning leads one down the path toward unpardonable sin.


I asked my angel why Seventh-day Adventists are teaching the false gospel of Babylon regarding cheap grace. I was instructed that this was due to imbibing strictly forbidden ASSOCIATION, COUNCIL/COUNSEL/GIRDING AND CONSPIRACY/CONFEDERAT -ING with Babylonians, and reading and publishing their antichrist materials, and by our leaders going to Babylonian institutions for education. They then return to Adventist institutions and teach the errors they have gleaned from Babylon. This is another way in which the church rejects the teachings of its prophetess Ellen White, who steadfastly warned against such practices.


SDA ministers have also been sent to Babylonian pastors for instruction on growing mega churches. And the formula? The formula is to give the people what they want; ignore doctrine which can divide, and provide entertainment. This is not how Jesus instructed His disciples in organizing home churches, some of which are included in Revelation Chapters 2 and 3.


It should be clear that the formula for growing mega, popular churches, is provided by Satan, and not Jesus Christ.


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

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.

1Jo 1:5   This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 

1Jo 1:6   If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 

1Jo 1:7   But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 

1Jo 1:8  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 

1Jo 1:9   If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 

1Jo 1:10   If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.


The Holy Flesh, Nudity Movement


We are never to believe that after we are born again that we have “holy flesh,” as did/do some fanatics who formed what is called the holy flesh movement.


Men and women, supposed to be guided by the Holy Spirit, held meetings in a state of nudity. They talked about holy flesh. They said they were beyond the power of temptation, and they sang, and shouted, and made all manner of noisy demonstrations. These men and women were not bad, but they were deceived and deluded.... Satan was moulding the work, and sensuality was the result. The cause of God was dishonored. Truth, sacred truth, was leveled in the dust by human agencies. {NL 51.3}


The authorities of the land interfered, and several of the ring leaders were incarcerated within prison walls. By those who were confined in prison this interference was termed persecution for the truth’s sake, and thus truth was clothed with garments spotted with the flesh.... I presented the reproof of the Lord regarding this kind of work, showing that its influence was making the truth objectionable and disgusting to the community.... {NL 52.1}


I bore my testimony, declaring that these fanatical movements, this din and noise, were inspired by the spirit of Satan, who was working miracles to deceive if possible the very elect. [Letter 132, 1900 (Portions in Selected Messages 2:36, 37.)] {NL 52.2}

 

Is it Possible to Overcome All Known Sin This Side of Glorification

 

The leaders of new movement Adventism teach that it is IMPOSSIBLE to overcome all known sin this side of glorification. In so doing, they directly contradict God and the Spirit of Prophecy. They reject the greatest sacrifice of the Son of God, the highest good, crowning gift that heaven can bestow, the gift of the Son’s Holy Spirit as empowerment for overcoming any temptation to sin.

 

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Phl 3:15 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.

Jas 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

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.

 

When we are born again with the Divine Nature, how are we at any disadvantage? God says that He will permit no temptation that we will not be able to resist!

 

1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

 

That (above) is directly the opposite to what Walter Veith and other leaders of the new movement are teaching. It is thus that they present a weak, impotent Holy Spirit, versus a giant, potent, all-powerful devil whose temptations are impossible to overcome this side of glorification. This teaching by Walter Veith and any other dumb-dob (Isa 56:10-12) leader, should put you on high alert, because this teaching will be followed by other serious errors, like Veith’s teaching that you should glue yourself to a pew at the new movement that has removed God, no matter what that new movement does. That is an invitation by Satan to the next literal Ezekiel 9 slaughter of men, maidens and little children. Is that serious to you? Is that a spiritual crime? Is that a religious crisis?

 

If God abhors one sin above another, of which His people are guilty, it is doing nothing in case of an emergency. Indifference and neutrality in a religious crisis is regarded of God as a grievous crime and equal to the very worst type of hostility against God.” —Testimonies, vol. 3, page 281.

 

Are you willing to be guilty of indifference and neutrality in this religious crisis that is regarded by God as a grievous crime and equal to the very worst type of HOSTILITY AGAINST GOD? Do you just quickly peruse such statements by the Holy Sprit to the church and let them go in one eye and out the other with total indifference? Do you think we can be guilty of THE WORST HOSTILITY AGAINST GOD, and be saved? That would be the worst sin of presumption!

 

Corporate responsibility: “For more than a thousand years the Jewish nation had abused God’s mercy and invited His judgments. They had rejected His warnings and mercy and invited His judgments. They had rejected His warnings and slain His prophets. For these sins the people of Christ’s day made themselves responsible by following the same course. In the rejection of their present mercies and warnings lay the guilt of that generation. The fetters which the nation had for centuries been forging, the people of Christ’s day were fastening upon themselves.” Desire of Ages, 586-7.

 

"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.

 

Luk 8:13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.

 

In lieu of falling away in the time of temptation, we can JUST SAY NO! because the Holy Spirit has provided the most potent power in the universe to do just that! Think of how non-Christians overcome dreadful addiction to smoking and drinking for example. If they can do that on sheer willpower, what can we do with the power of the Holy Spirit to aid us!

 

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.

 

How to be Born Again and Arrayed in Christ’s Righteousness


Our duty is to behold Christ by prayer, study of His Word, and witnessing to others of His powerful grace given for obedience as well as pardon. We are to die to self on a moment by moment basis. That is what Christ did. A dead man/woman/youth cannot commit sin! There is no temptation that can tempt a DEAD PERSON. We are to die to the old man and live anew in Jesus’ divine nature that will abide in us and we in Him.


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” (Isaiah 49:16). They are held in everlasting, imperishable remembrance. We want faith now, living faith. We want to have a living testimony that shall cut to the heart of the sinner. There is too much sermonizing and too little ministering. We want the holy unction. We need the spirit and fervor of the truth. Many of the ministers are half paralyzed by their own defects of character. They need the converting power of God.” {2SM 380.3}


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. God help us to render to Him all His law requires. We cannot do this without that faith that brings Christ’s righteousness into daily practice.” {2SM 380.4}


Mat 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Phl 3:15 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.

Jas 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Jhn 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Jhn 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

1Pe 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

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.

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

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.

Act 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

Rom 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

2Pe 2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

2Pe 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

1Jo 2:13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.

1Jo 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

1Jo 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

1Jo 1:6   If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 

1Jo 1:7   But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 

 

Were God and His Son Sadists When They Gave the Ten-Commandment Law on Mt. Sinai?—Conditions to Salvation

 

Many Adventists are not aware that both Christ and the Father proclaimed the Ten Commandments on Mt. Sinai. The reason they were both there is because they are of the same one eternal essence and substance, the ONE eternal Spirit. That is why they both come to us as the Holy Spirit, John 14:23.

 

Questions and Statements:

·       Did God give a law that it is impossible to keep, as Satan charges?

·       Did God say that the law is perfect, converting the soul?

·       Psa 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

·       Is that why David loved the law of God? It is perfect. It is God’s Hedge of Protection. It is God’s way of providing for man’s best welfare, without which it is a chaotic free for all. This empirical fact should lead us all to love the law of God.

·       Do you see how men as intelligent as Walter Veith can go totally astray and cause many to be slaughtered in the next literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9?

·       How dreadfully foolish virgin and hypocrical it is to refer to yourself as GOD’S COMMANDMENT-KEEPING PEOPLE, and then teach that IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP THEM!

 

"When they came to Sinai, He took occasion to refresh their minds in regard to His requirements. Christ and the Father, standing side by side upon the mount, with solemn majesty proclaimed the Ten Commandments..." E.G. White, Evangelism, p. 616.

 

Jhn 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

 

The entire Great Controversy between Christ and Satan is over Satan’s challenge that God’s law is impossible to keep, and that angels did not need that law. SDA new movement leaders are teaching that lie of Satan to the church today. So, the question remains: Were Christ and the Father sadists when they commanded the Hebrews at Mt. Sinai to keep the commandments?

 

Was Jesus a sadist when He instructed Mary Magdalene to go and sin no more? Was He merely telling her to do the impossible?

 

Jesus came in the likeness of sinful man to be an example to man that it is possible to keep the commandments which were designed to protect and provide for the utopian best welfare of mankind. He came to give us His Divine Nature Holy Spirit POWER for the purpose of overcoming the lusts of this world.

 

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.

 

The Power of Choice

 

God gave man the power to choose whether or not to obey His commandments. He does not force them on anyone. Some think that God does FORCE them when disobedience results in undesirable consequences. The truth of the matter is that God’s law being designed for the utopian welfare of man, cannot be both—protective of man’s best welfare, and permitting of sin against those laws.

 

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.

 

Why do leaders like Walter Veith teach that it is impossible to obey God’s law this side of glorification? Because they and the people they serve DELIGHT IN THEIR ABOMINATIONS RATHER THAN SIGH AND CRY ABOUT THEM. They love the false peace and safety prophesying’s of the leaders.


God’s Instruction to the Seven Churches of Revelation Chapter 2 and 3


God’s admonition to overcome means to overcome sin.

Rev 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Rev 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

Rev 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Rev 2:26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

Rev 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Rev 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

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.

Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

The Serious Implications of Teaching that We Cannot Keep the Commandments


The Doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which God especially hates, did away with the law.

·       If man cannot keep the law, Satan won the Great Controversy between him and Christ. All that merely believe should be saved.

·       If man cannot keep the law, it is a charade to pretend to keep the Sabbath commandment, for this would be just as impossible as it would be to keep any other nine commandments.

·       It is hypocritical to claim to be God’s commandment-KEEPING people out of one side of the mouth, while teaching that it is IMPOSSIBLE to keep them out of the other side of their forked-tonged mouth.


I was shown that the worst abominations taught by new movement Adventism today are the Trinity Doctrine which denies the Atonement of Christ coming in the likeness of sinful flesh, by its teaching that there are three co-ETERNAL persons to the Godhead. The humanity of the Son of God was NO PART of the Godhead until His Incarnation Atonement act.


The second worst abomination is Satan’s lie, which is akin to the first, is that it is impossible to keep the commandments of God this side of glorification, when the highest good, crowning sacrificial act of heaven provided the gift of the DIVINE NATURE as empowerment for overcoming sin NOW.


Walter Veith is responsible for teaching both those abominations. Unknown thousands will die in the next literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 because of Veith’s admonition to SUPER GLUE yourself to a pew at the new movement that has removed God (1SM 204, 205).


The videos I refer to: The first, below, is the one on the Spirit of Prophecy and overcoming sin. The next is on the United Nations, and is very good and important, as is the third video which is on spiritual formation.


I am being totally fair to Walter Veith. I don’t tell folk not to listen to his videos. I merely warn of his insidious errors that will lead thousands to slaughter and loss of eternal life. Any who support those who are in such serious apostasy, are corporately responsible for the apostasy.

On the above (third) video, Veith speaks of how satanic Spiritual Formation is, deriving from Ignatius of Loyola, but DOES NOT even mention that at the time he made the video, Spiritual Formation was flooding into the SDA new movement and is still doing so! He never warned about the hypnosis involved with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), which SDA ministers were being sent to learn. Ellen White warned that SDA ministers would use hypnosis.


Ellen White warned that SDA Ministers will employ Hypnosis

"The time has come where even in the church and in our institutions, some will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. But God will keep that which is committed to Him. Let us draw near to Him, that He may draw near to us. Let us bear a plain, clear testimony right to the point, that HYPNOTISM is being used by those who have departed from the faith and that we are not to link up with them. Through those who depart from the faith, the power of the enemy will be exercised to lead others astray." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Bk. 3, pp. 411, 412.

·       Departing from the faith IS NOT necessarily departing from the new movement. It is crucial to remember this fact.

·       We are not to link up with -JOIN, those who are giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, and that is what SDA ministers are doing by learning NLP and Jesuit Spiritual Formation based on the exercises by Ignatius of Loyola, and Satanic mysticism.

·       When Walter Veith and other SDA leaders instruct you to go to their new movement no matter what it does, they are inviting you to a hypnotic séance because they have departed from the faith once delivered to the saints.


What is Veith’s response: Glue yourself to a pew at the new movement and be hypnotized during the sermon on Sabbath. An SDA minister is on record for saying: “What better time to hypnotize than during the sermon on Sabbath morning when you have a CAPTIVE audience!” That is why many SDA’s will not respond to the shaking message of True Reformers, because they are brainwashed by hypnosis.


What Walter Veith is teaching on overcoming well applies to the great multitude, as I will explain in Part 2 of this vision, but God says that the 144,000 are without fault. God says there is a way of knowing whether we love Him or not.


1Jo 5:2   By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 

1Jo 5:3   For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 


QUESTION:

If we don’t keep His commandments, how else can we KNOW we love God and the brethren. There is no other test. It does not say: By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and strive to keep His commandments. That is what Walter Veith is saying, and by that: STRIVING to keep His commandments vs. KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS BY THE EMPOWERMENT OF HIS HOLY SPIRIT, WE KNOW THAT WE LOVE HIM. The bride of Christ will aspire to the latter formula.


If you are NOT KEEPING the commandments, there is no way to KNOW that you love God and the brethren. Conversely, we must be able to KNOW that we are KEEPING the commandments or not, lest God err in telling us that the only test by which we can KNOW that we love Him, is by KEEPING the commandments.

In the Name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,

Addendum:


Let Walter Veith, Francois du Plessis, and every persons who teaches that keeping the commandments of God is not a CONDITION to salvation, respond to all the evidence in this document in a manner that explains it all away.


Below, I have listed all the Bible’s instruction on commandment-KEEPING this side of glorification:


QUESTIONS:

·       If keeping God’s commandments is not possible, as Satan and his agents attest, why did God give all these commands concerning His commandments and proffer blessings to His chosen people CONDITIONAL to keeping said commandments.

·       All God’s promises are CONDITIONAL to obedience to all of His commandments.

·       Why would God make commandment-KEEPING a TEST of those who are teaching TRUTH (Isaiah 8:20), if it is impossible to keep them?

·       Why would God make commandment-KEEPING A SIGN OF His TRUE CHURCH, if it is impossible to keep them?

·       Why would God say the 144,000 are WITHOUT FAULT (Rev. 14:1-4), if it is impossible to keep them?

·       Would God give all the following instruction to His people on keeping His commandments if it was impossible to keep them with the aid of the Holy Spirit’s empowerment?

·       If we cannot keep God’s commandments this side of glorification, why did God give us all of the following instruction and make all His promises contingent upon obedience to all His commandments BEFORE glorification?
