25. My Vision On Questions of
September 27, 2010
September 27, 2010
I asked the Lord the following questions:
· What are the deepest implications of pantheism?
· I asked how God communicated with man before the Incarnation, since the Holy Spirit was not a distinct, separate third person until after the Incarnation which began from the foundation of the earth. Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
· I asked the Lord why He had to die in order to provide the “highest good, crowning gift” of His Holy Spirit as the cure for sin and regeneration back into His image.
· I asked the Lord what He did from the time the Incarnation began (“from His slaying from the foundation of the earth”), to the time He was sired into the womb of Mary, His mother.
· If the Holy Spirit existed forever as mainstream Christianity teaches, why would God not use that medium to communicate with man before the Incarnation?
· I asked for Bible proof other than Ellen White’s statement that the Atonement was not completed on the cross.
What are the deepest implications of pantheism?
Here are the answers I was shown in vision:
I was shown that if God indwelt in all living matter through His Holy Spirit essence via the concept of pantheism, that He would have been implicated in the blame for the sin of Lucifer, Adam and all men; that He would be implicated in the fault for all extinct species of living matter.
I was shown again by way of confirmation that the World Council of Churches accepts as members the non-Christian religions of the world and those that teach pantheism. The SDA church pays large sums in annual dues to the World Council of Churches, via its subsidiary organizations e.g., various National Councils of Churches and more local Ministerial Associations. I was shown that this indirect support (financing) of pantheism is just as bad as teaching it and that all SDA new movement members who are so enlightened of this fact and still prevail in supporting the new movement will be held corporately responsible for this pantheism heresy. It was confirmed again to me that this is how the omega of apostasy embraces pantheism on a much greater encompassing scale than did the alpha.
In addition, I was shown that pantheism totally voids the Sanctuary/Atonement Service by totally obfuscating the highest good, crowing gift of the Incarnation which began in the heavenly Sanctuary, and provided a cure for sin by making it possible for the Holy Spirit (soul of the life of Christ) to indwell all who desire that cure for sin and who love the cure (Christ’s Holy Spirit—thus Christ, more than sin. This accords with Ellen White’s defining of the Holy Spirit as the soul of the life of Christ. He showed me that without that great sacrifice on His part, angels and men would not desire His Holy Spirit and be convinced that He was subject to His own law and that His character was of total self-sacrificing love. That love was to beget our love for Him.
Recall that in the Alpha of Kellogg’s pantheism, Ellen White saw the Sanctuary/Atonement gone, while the ministering brethren were looking on, but did not understand this fact. If pantheism were correct, that God is in everything via His Holy Spirit, for that is the only way He could be in everything and still be in our image, there would have been no need of the Incarnation sacrifice of Christ whereby His Holy Spirit ONLY existence was divested from His humanity and proffered to us as a cure for sin and to return us to the image of God.
The Trinity Doctrine obfuscates the Sanctuary/Atonement as well by teaching that there was no such sacrifice involved in the Incarnation, by teaching that the Holy Spirit existed as a third person forever. I was shown this fact years prior to this vision, but as all truth is contingent (builds upon itself), I was reminded to remind you that it is often necessary to repeat some truths in order to better explain new themes. Men like Art Abbott don’t seem to understand this fact, and accuse me of seeing the same thing for the first time in more than one vision. That is not the case in any wise.
How God communicated with man before the Incarnation
The Lord showed me that He communicated directly with man before His Incarnation. He reminded me of passages in Scripture where Jesus is referred to as Jehovah and the alpha and omega.
Why Christ had to die in order to provide the “highest good, crowning gift” of His Holy Spirit
The Lord showed me that first and foremost He had to die to atone for sin’s penalty—eternal death. The wages of sin is eternal death. He reminded me that the Testator had to die to something eternally—in His case His existence as Holy Spirit Son of God ONLY, versus His existence as combined with humanity forever. Thirdly, He showed me that in order to indwell the heart and soul of man, He had to go through the Incarnation sacrifice in order for man to appreciate the gift of that sacrifice enough to desire it, because He would never force it on man. He showed me that this sacrifice was to demonstrate to man His great love for fallen beings and that by witnessing this love, He would become their desire of the ages, and He would thus come and indwell those who love Him more than sin.
What Christ did from the time the Incarnation began “from the slaying from the foundation of the earth,” to the time He was sired into the womb of Mary
1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Jud 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee
I was shown that the reason Satan did not recognize the superiority of Christ compared to himself is because Christ was indeed in the likeness of a fellow angel. Some men made the same mistake when Christ was on this earth in the likeness of a man. Therefore, Satan being the most “apparently” (from outward appearance) talented angel, he became lifted up and coveted the position of being included in the counsels between God and His Son. In the same manner some men were “apparently” more comely than Christ when He appeared in the form of a man, and they think themselves as better than Christ because of their knowledge, apparent talents, and comely appearance, etc.
I asked how God communicated with man before the Incarnation, since the Holy Spirit was not a distinct, separate third person until after the Incarnation which began from the foundation of the earth.
If the Holy Spirit existed forever as mainstream Christianity teaches, why would God not use that medium to communicate with man before the Incarnation?
I was shown the fact that the Son appeared as Himself, and not His Holy Spirit, in instances where He appeared to man before the Incarnation, is proof that three distinct persons did not accrue before the Incarnation at which time the Son divested His Holy Spirit ONLY existence (being) from His humanity, and that His Holy Spirit being then became a distinct third person. I asked why the Son’s Incarnation into an angel didn’t make a fourth person of the Godhead, and I was told that Christ was the Archangel as well as being combined with humanity forever and that they constitute one person. I was shown that more involving this mystery will be taught to us in the regeneration of heaven.
I was prompted to repeat again that if the Holy Spirit existed as a third person from all eternity rather than from the Incarnation, four persons to the Godhead would then accrue:
1. God the Father.
2. God the Son.
3. God the Holy Spirit
4. God the Son as Combined with humanity forever.
Bible proof other than Ellen White’s statement that the Atonement was not completed on the cross
I was reminded that God’s way is in the Sanctuary message and that on the Day of Atonement the Atonement was not complete until the High Priest took His blood into the Sanctuary and pled that blood in Atonement for man’s sins. Thus, the Atonement was never completed on the Cross as mainstream Christianity erroneously asserts. Thus, the pleading of Christ’s blood in the heavenly Sanctuary after His resurrection (Christ being both the High Priest and the sacrificial Lamb), was just as essential as was His death on the cross.
I was shown that in the final antitypical Day of Atonement, which ensued in 1844, it is not complete until all sinners who will cease to sin have done so, and all individuals have repented of their past sins. Only God knows when this process is complete and at that time He will finally shut off the admission of intercessory prayers into the heavenly Sanctuary and probation will end.
In the name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
