46. My Vision on:

Two Jerusalem Headquarters

Two Jerusalem Noble Ships


Nov. 10, 2012

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



In the early morning hours of Sabbath, November 10, 2012, I was shown a vision correlating the two Noble Ships with the Two Jerusalem Headquarters of Isaiah 4:1-4. This is a most fascinating truth rooted in the same scenario involving the apostasy of God’s first chosen people, the Jews. This is short, but so important and profound. This is life saving knowledge for those who choose to heed it. As all truth is contingent, I will, as usual, include other supporting data that I have been shown in previous visions. For example, whenever I refer to the omega of apostasy unpardonable sin of the new movement, new organization Seventh-day Adventist church, it is important to give some examples for the benefit of new readers, even though I have cited those examples relative to past visions.


First, let’s review Isaiah 4:1-4 which I have spoken of on numerous occasions, but did not see the correlation with the two ships until I was shown in vision. I was shown that Isaiah 4 has a dual application in that it applied to ancient Israel as well as modern-day spiritual Israel. I will give an explanation of what I was shown below the chapter.


The way in which Isaiah 4 depicts two Jerusalem Headquarters, is by referring to he that remaineth in Zion, and those who escape of Israel. This is further delineated by Isaiah 37:31, 32, where Isaiah speaks of a true remnant going forth out of Jerusalem. So there has to be a true Jerusalem for those who “remain in Jerusalem” (verse 3 of Isaiah 4 below), and we know there was an apostate Jerusalem that Jesus referred to as The Synagogue of Satan. Apostate Jews believed they had to remain in their apostate Temple church to be sealed, just as Adventists do today. But Ellen White said that God has been removed (1SM 204-205), and there is only one other master when God is removed—Satan—and his Synagogue. The Synagogue of Satan has no virtue to seal anyone for anything but hell.


Long ago I was shown in vision the correlation between Isaiah 4:1-4 and Isaiah 37:31, 32. In my vision this a.m., I was shown the correlation between these verses and the Two Jerusalem Headquarters. I was shown once again this a.m. that no person was sealed in the apostate Jerusalem church; that those who were sighing and crying about the abominations in Jerusalem were those of the True Jerusalem Headquarters church led by the disciples, while members of the apostate Jerusalem Headquarters were defending their church.


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

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. Isaiah 37:31, 32.


Isaiah Chapter 4

1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

2 In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.

3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:

4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.

5 And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.

6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.

 

1. Seven women: I was shown that in the end-time application, seven women refers to all formally organized churches. These churches profess to believe on man, one Master, Jesus Christ, but they are stiff-necked and at the same time desire to eat their own bread—the commandments and teachings of men rather than Christ’s commandments and teachings, while desiring to be called Christians to take away the reproach they incur by giving themselves and Christianity a bad name by not following the truth as it is taught in the Word of God.

 

2. I was shown that verse two correlates to Isaiah 62 and Zion, the bride of Christ, when she goes forth as brightness and as a lamp that burneth, and all men see her righteousness and all kings her glory, to wit:

 

1 For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.

2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.

3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.

4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married. Isaiah 62:1-4.

 

Isaiah 4:2: “For them that are escaped of Israel.”—I was shown that in its application to ancient Israel this refers to the righteous Hebrews of all generations and especially the branch of the Lord as this applied to all true Christians who escaped from Israel in A.D. 66, and thereby avoided the destruction of Jerusalem. The Great Controversy, Chapter 1.

 

Isaiah 4:3: I was shown that this verse refers to the faithful remnant that constituted true Zion, true Jerusalem, after the filth of apostate Israel was destroyed in A.D. 70. I was shown that the same process as described in Ezekiel 22:17-31 will transpire again in the professing SDA church, while faithful Zion and her sons and daughters (Isaiah 62) will escape to be the final remnant.

 

Isaiah 4:4 I was shown that this verse refers directly to Ezekiel 22:17-31, wherein all the dross (tares) was gathered into the midsts of apostate Jerusalem for slaughter and burning, and not one faithful man was found amongst them, for all the faithful had fled to Pella in A.D. 66, years before the destruction of Jerusalem.

 

Isaiah 4:5  I was shown that in its first application this refers to ancient Israel and the protection God provided for them while and when they remained faithful to Him. But this has another figurative application at the end-time to the bride of Christ who will be protected from every evil that poses a threat to her. God will cover her with His brightness and she will escape the enemy that viciously, relentlessly pursues her at the end-time until she is delivered by the brightness of Christ’s coming. I was shown that the cloud of smoke by day and the flame of fire by night that protected ancient Israel, will be replaced by God’s covering of His brightness which will manifest itself in a way that makes the bride invisible to her enemies and undetectable. I was shown that the most advanced technology of Satan used in tracking people will be ineffective in detecting those who are under God’s panoply of protection. This panoply of protection will cover all who are obedient to all of His commands, and I refer expressly to the 144,000. There will be many others who will be saved who will be faithful martyrs (seed for fruit), and many who will be laid to rest before the great time of Jacob’s trouble.

 

The Two Jerusalem Headquarters and the Two Noble Ships

 

It is a historical fact that the disciples had their headquarters in Jerusalem. As the bride of Christ (DA 179), they were the true Zion representatives in Jerusalem. They and those they bound (sealed) were the True Jerusalem, the True SS Jerusalem ship. The apostate Jerusalem Temple was the false ship.

 

I was very thoroughly shown that the Noble Ship with a MAN at the helm (in lieu of Christ), is the apostate NEW MOVEMENT, NEW ORGANIZATION SDA church, as prophesied in Selected Messages, Bk. 1, 204-205. I was shown that Adventists have been very stiff-necked foolish virgins in ignoring this ship, while placating themselves as being Noble Ship #2.

 

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, Bk. 2, 128.

 

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 maters 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.

 

Some very foolish virgin Adventists believe that you have to remain on the SS Ship #1 in order to obtain the Mark by the Man in Linen, Ezekiel 9. I was shown that the church represented by Noble Ship #1 has no power to seal anyone, because the captain is a MAN, who has no virtue to seal anyone. I was shown that it is the True Reformers who seal the wheat for the heavenly garner of Hebrews 12:22, 23.

 

I was shown that the following prolepsis statement corresponds to Noble Ship #1, the apostate SDA new movement, new organization “church,” which Jesus would refer to as The Synagogue of Satan, just as He referred to the apostate Jewish church.

 

"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 was committed the EVERLASTING GOSPEL of Revelation 14.

·       Ellen White is defining the angel represented in prophecy AS DELIVERING THIS MESSAGE--NOT MEN OF BABYLON WHO FAILED TO ACCEPT THAT MESSAGE AS THE 1911 EDITION IMPLIES!

·       Ellen White is implying that the third angel's 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!

·       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.

·       And twice Ellen White mentions HIS CHURCH, NOT FALLEN BABYLON.

·       Some believe you must remain in the above described church in order to be sealed. No true Christian was ever sealed in or by membership in an apostate church organization.

Ellen White is addressing a BACKSLIDING CHURCH whose leaders and laity alike who failed and rejected light from heaven and who refused to comply with the conditions so that God's promises are not fulfilled to them.

 

I was shown that the disciples of Christ and their Home Churches, constituted the TRUE REFORMERS of their day. It was represented to me three times that the TRUE REFORMERS of today are the bride of Jesus Christ, and their home churches; that they represent Noble Ship #2, that goes safely into port heaven.

 

"Characteristics of True Reformers.--Here are given the characteristics of those who shall be reformers, who will bear the banner of the third angel's message, those who avow themselves God's commandment-keeping people, and who honor God, and are earnestly engaged, in the sight of all the universe, in building up the old waste places. Who is it that calls them, The repairers of the breach, The restorers of paths to dwell in? It is God. Their names are registered [written--Heb. 12:22-24] in heaven as reformers, restorers, as raising the foundations of many generations." E. G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 4, 1151.

 

The heavenly church is Zion (variation Sion). The bride of Christ enters there NOW by faith. She has sons and daughters (Isaiah 62) who will be guests at the wedding supper, GC 426, 427. If guests they cannot be the bride and if the bride they cannot be the guests. The bridal procession is now in progress. Jesus is bringing His bride to His own house—the heavenly church of Hebrews 12:22, 23. Ten young virgins who are not the bride, are awaiting the bridal procession, intending to join it. COL. 405-406. They are the guests. The wise of them will either be laid to rest or they will give their lives as faithful martyrs. The foolish of them remain Laodicean and/or cold apostate and are lost.

 

22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Hebrews 12:22-24.

 

The True Reformers are The Ones Who Seal the Wheat for the Heavenly Garner

 

I was shown most vividly that the following types of individuals who are True Reformers, are the ones who select, seal, and bind the wheat for the heavenly garner, by their most startling, shaking message. They constitute the THIRD ANGEL, faithful men:

 

Foolish virgin SDA’s say that no man will separate the wheat from the tares—that only an angel will do this. They are so sadly mistaken, for God looks upon those who have overcome all sin as the THIRD ANGEL—FAITHFUL MEN.

 

Third angel "I was shown that the THIRD ANGEL, proclaiming the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus, represents the PEOPLE who receive this message and raise the voice in warning to the world." Testimonies for the Church, vol. 1, 77.

 

"I then saw the THIRD ANGEL. Said my accompanying angel, 'Fearful is his work. Awful is his mission. He is the angel that is to select the wheat from the tares, and seal, or bind, the wheat for the heavenly garner." E.G. White, Early Writings, 118.

 

Third Angel—“No one hears the voice of these angels, for they are a symbol to represent the people of God who are working in harmony with the universe of heaven.  Men and women, enlightened by the Spirit of God and sanctified through the truth, proclaim the three messages in their order.”  E.G. White, Selected Messages, Bk. 2, p. 387.

 

"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." E. G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy, Vol. 4, 199, 200.


"Verily I say unto you," Christ continued, "whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." Verse 18.

This statement holds its force in all ages. On the church has been conferred the power to act in Christ's stead. It is God's instrumentality for the preservation of order and discipline among His people. To it the Lord has delegated the power to settle all questions respecting its prosperity, purity, and order. Upon it rests the responsibility of excluding from its fellowship those who are unworthy, who by their un-Christlike conduct would bring dishonor on the truth. Whatever the church does that is in accordance with the directions given in God's word will be ratified in heaven.” 7T 263.

 

The above statement refers to THE TRUE CHURCH—THE TRUE REFORMERS CALLED BY GOD. Only the disciples of Christ has power to bind (seal) the wheat for the heavenly garner. So it is today, since the SDA church militant apostatized into unpardonable sin by adopting antichrist teachings on the human nature of Christ and by adopting Rome’s central doctrine, the Trinity Doctrine, which sweeps away the entire Christian economy.

 

The Church Triumphant is Always in Existence

 

"The members of the church triumphant--the church in heaven--will be permitted to draw near to the members of the church militant, to aid them in their necessity." E. G. White, The Southern Watchman, Sep. 8, 1903.

 

The church in heaven refers to Hebrews 12:22, 23. Earthly representatives of that church, the bride, THE THIRD ANGEL, faithful men, will be permitted to draw near to the MEMBERS of the church militant, NOT THE CHURCH MILITANT ITSELF, to aid them in their necessity—THE NECESSITY OF KNOWING THE TRUTH WITHOUT WHICH THEY WILL PERISH ETERNALLY.

 

Selected Messages, Bk. 1, 204-205 says that NOTHING will be permitted to stand in the way of the new movement, new organization “church,” that has removed God. So the bride is not obliged to draw near to or aid what Jesus would call The Synagogue of Satan. But she is permitted to come to the aid of MEMBERS of that once church militant.

 

The most startling shaking message of True Reformers includes the warning that the apostate SDA church militant has fallen by forming a new, omega of apostasy movement, a new organization that has removed the most important truth in the Bible—the truth about the Godhead, around which everything in Scripture clusters. I was shown that all who contradict Ellen White in denying a third person to the Godhead, deny the “highest good, crowning gift” sacrifice by which the third person accrued at the beginning of the Incarnation of the Son of Man from the foundation of the earth.

 

A denial of a third person, in an effort to distance oneself from the false Trinity Doctrine, results in the same antichrist result—the sweeping away of the entire Christian economy by obliterating the sacrificial act of the Son of God in divesting His Divine ONLY personality—the personality of His Holy Spirit HIMSELF, from the personality of His humanity, forever, thus dying to His DIVINE ONLY state of being forever—and bequeathing His Holy Spirit soul of His Life to us as empowerment (a cure) for sin, and so as to be regenerated back into the image of God. Without that sacrifice, which met the prescribed limit of a sacrifice per the Testator’s Covenant, there would have been no SANCTUARY/ATONEMENT in heaven. The prescribed limit of a sacrifice demanded the death of the Testator, the Son of God, in some eternal mode of death in order to pay the penalty for our sin—which penalty is eternal death, not a mere three days and nights in a tomb.

 

"The darkness rolled away from the Saviour and from the Cross. Christ bowed His head and died. In His Incarnation He had reached the prescribed limit as a sacrifice, but not as a redeemer." E.G. White Manuscript Releases Volume Twelve, p. 409.

 

The only prescribed limit as a sacrifice is revealed in the Testator’s Covenant, to wit:

 

Hbr 9:16 For where a testament [is], there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

Hbr 9:17 For a testament [is] of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

 

If the Testator is not eternally dead to something, the Testament is of no force—NO SANCTUARY ATONEMENT. What He died to forever was His estate of being DIVINE ONLY.

 

"Cumbered with humanity Christ could not be in every place personally, therefore it was altogether for their advantage that He should leave them to go to His Father and send the Holy Spirit to be His successor on earth. The Holy Spirit is Himself divested of the personality of humanity and independent thereof. He would represent Himself as present in all places by His Holy Spirit.” E.G. White, (Manuscript Releases Volume 14 (No’s 1081-1135) MR No.1084.

Addendum:

 

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.

 

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.

 

Immediately preceding the above statement is the admonition:

 

"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.
