66. My Vision on Why God Says His People Perish for a Lack of Knowledge


August 2, 2013


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


Hsa 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

 

The words of God to ancient Israel have a solemn warning to the church and its leaders today. Of Israel the Lord said, “I have written to him the great things of My law; but they were counted as a strange thing.” Hosea 8:12. And to the priests and teachers He declared, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee; ... seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” Hosea 4:6. {COL 306.2}



 In the early hours of the morning of August 2, 2013, the angel of the Lord gave me the following vision on why His people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge. Some is old light, necessary as supporting evidence for the new, and especially for new readers. Another reason for repetition of the old is that all PURE TRUTH is contingent, so any new insights are contingent upon the old. In my youth, I used to wonder why Ellen White repeated herself so much. I now fully understand the reason!


The angel of the Lord prompts my attention to the Spirit of Prophecy statements and other data I record as part of my vision. I make a reference list of them and gather them into a manuscript immediately after my vision.


God makes some very grave statements about His chosen people. He says that they perish for a lack of knowledge. But it goes beyond that. God says that His people REJECT KNOWLEDGE. He says that they are in the greatest deception possible by thinking they are all right when they are ALL WRONG.

 

What if the Pope told the Catholics they are ALL WRONG?! What if Joseph Smith, the prophet to the Mormons told them they are ALL WRONG?! What if Ellen G. White, prophetess to the SDA church told them that they are ALL WRONG?! In the case of Adventists, that is exactly what happened:

 

The Testimony For The Church—The Laodicean Church—What greater deception can come upon human minds than a confidence that they are right when they are ALL WRONG?”  Testimonies, Vol. 3, pp. 253, 254.

 

One would think that if the church prophet told the church it was in the greatest deception possible by thinking it was ALL RIGHT, while being ALL WRONG, that such a church would be searching day and night to discover why God has branded it as being ALL WRONG, and has told His people that they will perish for a lack of knowledge, especially when they have been privy to advanced light and believe that they are the end-time true remnant because they have a true prophet amongst them!

 

Other Grave Statements by Ellen G. White to Adventists

 

Any true reformer Seventh-day Adventist can give abundant examples as to how and why all of the specifications in the following statement have been fulfilled. While you read, look for reasons as to why God says that Adventists are ALL WRONG, while thinking they are ALL RIGHT.

 

 "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. 

 

The full context of the above statement was the alpha and omega of apostasy. And how long did Ellen White say that apostasy would last?

 

"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).

 

"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.

 

The above statement must be factored in the weight of evidence regarding the ALL WRONG belief of many Adventists that there will be a primitive revival of the church. That is not true! If you will read the statement on primitive revival very carefully, you
will find that it says that there will be a primitive revival amongst INDIVIDUALS in ALL CHURCHES before the end, and that the faithful in all churches will leave ALL APOSTATE CHURCHES, including the SDA apostate church, that will wax stronger in apostasy until the Lord comes!

 

Compare the above statements with the following prolepsis statement which cites the final fate of the once SDA church militant. I say once SDA church militant, because the new movement organization is no longer the church militant. The church militant is the wheat and tare coed church. But the new movement has another element in it—and I speak of open apostate sinners whom the Bible refers to as THORNS. Thorns choke out the wheat and kill it before it is able to mature. Such a church is the Synagogue of Satan. It has advanced beyond even the Laodicean lukewarm state to being cold apostate. Now the prolepsis statement:

 

This prolepsis statement is rife with reasons why God removes Himself from “His people:” Especially note the fact that in the above statement Ellen White says that God is removed from the new movement, and in the following statement, she says that the church militant finally separates itself from God:

 

PROLEPSIS 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!

·       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.

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.

 

What are Some of the Conditions the Professing SDA Church has Refused to Comply With? What is the Knowledge God says His People Have REJECTED?

 

The Lord has shown this writer the following CONDITIONS that the SDA church has refused to comply with, and important knowledge that the church has rejected. Recall that in Hosea 4, God indicts His people for rejecting knowledge! Some will say this applies only to the Jews. But Ellen White says that Adventists are following EXACTLY in the path of the Jews.

 

Hsa 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

 

Adventists are Repeating the History of the Jews but in a GREATER DEGREE

 

There are over 100 statements to the affect that SDAs are repeating the history of ancient Israel. Here are just a few of them:

 

The same disobedience and failure which were seen in the Jewish church have characterized in a greater degree the people who have had this great light from heaven in the last messages of warning.” Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 456.

 

History repeats itself. “The thing that has been, it is that which shall be: and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” (Ecc. 1:9). In other words, The important movements of the present have their parallel in those of the past.” (G.C. 343).

 

That the Advent Movement is an important movement of the present no one can deny and it has its parallel in the history of Ancient Israel: “The remnant church is called to go through an experience similar to that of the Jews.” (1 SM, 387). Not one of us can afford to ignore the following warning:

                 

The trials of the children of Israel, and their attitude just before the first coming of Christ, have been presented before me, again and again, to ILLUSTRATE the position of the people of God in their experience before the second coming of Christ—how the enemy sought every occasion to take control of the minds of the Jews, and today he is seeking to blind the minds of God’s servants, that they may not be able to discern the Precious Truth.” (1 SM, 406; 2 Cor 4:4). The “precious truth” mentioned here is the light sent to the Seventh-day Adventists in 1888. 

 

"I have been shown that the spirit of the world is fast leavening the church. You are following the same path as did ancient Israel. There is the same falling away from your holy calling as God's peculiar people. You are having fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Your concord with unbelievers have provoked the Lord's displeasure. You know not the things that belong to your peace, and they are fast being hid from your eyes. [The very words applied to fallen Israel on page 17 of The Great Controversy] Your neglect to follow the light will place you in a more unfavorable position than the Jews upon whom Christ pronounced a woe." Testimonies, Vol. 5, pp. 75-76.

 

·       Fellowship with Babylon and the world and concord (agreement) with both constitutes a falling away from the church’s holy calling as God’s peculiar people. This is far more serious than most Adventists discern. It is so grave, because it can lead to marriage (being joined to) Satan’s confederacies. This is what happened in the case of the SDA church and many churches.

·       SDA ministers are MEMBERS of their local Ministerial Association which is a local subsidiary of the World Council of Churches. I was personally told this fact by a PhD. official of the Canadian Council of Churches.

·       SDA leaders try to use the pretext that they are doing what Ellen White advocated by way of coming closer to ministers of other faiths, but this type of MEMBERSHIP in Satan’s Ministerial Associations IS NOT what Ellen White meant.

·       I asked Dr. B. B. Beach over the phone in the latter part of the 1980’s, if he could give me the names of any ministers of other faiths that have been converted to Adventism by its MEMBERSHIP in Babylon’s Ministerial Associations, National Councils of Churches, and liaison with the World Council of Churches, by MEMBERSHIP of that organization in at least 5 countries of the world. He could not give me ONE NAME! Why would that be a means of converting non-Adventist ministers to Adventism, when it is a practice that is strictly forbidden by God in Isaiah 8:9-12, and constitutes unpardonable sin we are counseled by God to not even pray for—Jeremiah 11:9-15. The only option for this grave sin is “BROKEN IN PIECES.” Compare these words of Isaiah 8 with the marginal reading for the words slaughter weapons in Ezekiel 9:2—“a weapon of His BREAKING IN PIECES.” This serious rejection of God’s counsel and CONDITIONS, is one of the prime reasons the SDA church militant literally experiences Ezekiel 9 slaughter, per a number of statements by Ellen White, stating that fact.

 

"In the balances of the sanctuary the Seventh-day Adventist church is to be weighed. She will be judged by the privileges and advantages that she has had. . . .I saw our Instructor pointing to the garments of so-called righteousness. Stripping them off He laid bare the defilement beneath. Then He said to me: 'Can you not see how they have pretentiously covered up their defilement and rottenness of character? How is the faithful city become an harlot?" E. G. White, Testimonies, Vol. 8, pp. 247-250.

 

A new order of things has come into the ministry. There is a desire to pattern after other churches, and simplicity and humility are almost unknown. The young ministers seek to be original, and to introduce new ideas and new plans for labor. Some open revival meetings, and by this means call large numbers into the church. But when the excitement is over, where are the converted ones? Repentance and confession of sin are not seen. The sinner is entreated to believe in Christ and accept Him, without regard to his past life of sin and rebellion. The heart is not broken. There is no contrition of soul. The supposed converted ones have not fallen upon the Rock, Christ Jesus.” {2SM 18.4}

 

Adventists were having fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness in Ellen White’s day. But they finally progressed beyond the harlot state of 5T 250, to become married (joined) to Babylon’s associations, councils and confederacies, that are Satan’s means of infiltrating and conquering the churches of the land to make them ONE WORLD CHURCH UNDER A NEW WORLD ORDER. That is the prime goal of the World Council of Churches and its subsidiary organizations such as local Ministerial Associations, National Councils of Churches, and the head World Council of Churches.

 

The stages of harlotry are:

 

1.    Fellowship (flirting) with the enemy of all righteousness—Babylon, creates a desire to pattern after those churches.

2.    The flirting fellowship leads to infatuation and a desire to become like Babylon, which cannot be distinguished from the world. (Early Writings, pp. 273-274)

3.    The desire to become like Babylon finally leads to marriage (liaison) to Babylon via membership in its associations, councils, girdings and/or confederacies, in violation of Isaiah 8:9-12. This is so serious as to constitute unpardonable sin, because the only option, stated three times because of the gravity of the sin, is BROKEN IN PIECES.

 

Harlotry is repentable. If you will notice 8T 250, right after calling the church a harlot, Ellen White pleads with it to reform or it will come to abhor itself. But harlotry that finally leads to marriage (being joined to) Babylon’s Ministerial Associations, National Councils and World Councils (Confederacies) is unpardonable sin, denoted by the words “BROKEN IN PIECES” in Isaiah 8:9-12.

 

Why unpardonable sin? Because the World Council of Churches and its subsidiary associations, councils etc., are a Satanic conspiracy to unite all the churches into a one world church of Satan’s design. When Israel formed a conspiracy with God’s enemies in Jeremiah 11:9-15, God told Jeremiah to no longer pray for that generation of Jews, and that if he did pray for them, God would not hear his prayers. That connotes UNPARDONABLE SIN. That renders the church as being ALL WRONG, BECAUSE ANYTHING IT DOES THAT INVOLVES UNPARDONABLE SIN, CONSTITUTES A REJECTION OF GOD’S KNOWLEDGE AND HIS INSTRUCTIONS BASED ON THAT KNOWLEDGE. Any act that constitutes unpardonable sin means loss of eternal life and no church or individual can get MORE WRONG THAN THAT!

 

Did Ellen White AND THE APOSTLES Say the SDA Church Militant Would do the Same Thing the Jews Did in Jeremiah 11:9-15—Commit Unpardonable Sin?

 

In the following statement, look for reasons as to why the church is ALL WRONG while thinking itself ALL RIGHT:

 

COUNTERPART: "The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants, 'Pray not thou for this people [Jer. 7:16 and 11:14], 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.

 

Reasons (relative to the above statement) why the professing SDA once church militant finally commits (and has already committed) unpardonable sin so that God says not to even pray for her:

 

·       ‘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.”

 

"Like ancient Israel, the church has dishonored her God by departing from the light, neglecting her duties, and abusing her high and exalted privilege of being peculiar and holy in character. Her members have violated their covenant to live for God and him only. They have joined with the selfish and world-loving. Pride, the love of pleasure, and sin have been cherished, and CHRIST HAS DEPARTED. His Spirit has been quenched in the church. Satan works side by side with professed Christians yet they are so destitute of spiritual discernment that they do not detect him." E.G. White, Testimonies, Vol. 2, pp. 441-442.


The days are fast approaching when there will be great perplexity and confusion. Satan, clothed in angel robes, will deceive, if possible, the very elect. There will be gods many and lords many. Every wind of doctrine will be blowing. Those who have rendered supreme homage to “science falsely so called” will not be the leaders then. Those who have trusted to intellect, genius, or talent will not then stand at the head of rank and file. They did not keep pace with the light. Those who have proved themselves unfaithful will not then be entrusted with the flock. In the last solemn work few great men will be engaged. They are self-sufficient, independent of God, and He cannot use them. The Lord has faithful servants, who in the shaking, testing time will be disclosed to view. There are precious ones now hidden who have not bowed the knee to Baal. They have not had the light which has been shining in a concentrated blaze upon you. But it may be under a rough and uninviting exterior the pure brightness of a genuine Christian character will be revealed. In the day time we look toward heaven but do not see the stars. They are there, fixed in the firmament, but the eye cannot distinguish them. In the night we behold their genuine luster.” {5T 80.1}

 

The Rejection of Knowledge in the Form of Rejecting the Biblical Principle of Corporate Responsibility

 

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

 

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

 

Achan’s sin brought disaster upon the whole nation. For one man’s sin the displeasure of God will rest upon His church till the transgression is searched out and put away. The influence most to be feared by the church is not that of open opposers, infidels, and blasphemers, but of inconsistent professors of Christ. These are the ones that keep back the blessing of the God of Israel and bring weakness upon His people.” {PP 497.2}

 

When the church is in difficulty, when coldness and spiritual declension exist, giving occasion for the enemies of God to triumph, then, instead of folding their hands and lamenting their unhappy state, let its members inquire if there is not an Achan in the camp. With humiliation and searching of heart, let each seek to discover the hidden sins that shut out God’s presence.” {PP 497.3}

 

In the early 1950’s, two SDA missionary ministers confronted the General Conference leaders with a lengthy manuscript on the Biblical principle of corporate responsibility. Their particular drive was to convince the leaders that the church was/is corporately responsible for repenting for the rejection of righteousness by faith in 1888. But of course the principle of corporate responsibility goes far beyond that one apostasy to include all apostasy committed by SDA leaders.

 

SDA leaders forthrightly REJECTED the Biblical KNOWLEDGE on corporate responsibility as presented by Elders Robert J. Weiland and Donald K. Short. This is grave sin involving outright rejection of Bible KNOWLEDGE, and God indicts His people for rejecting KNOWLEDGE.

 

Not long ago, SDA General Conference President Ted Wilson, said that the church is corporately responsible for praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. I will tell you a truth friend: If the church is corporately responsible for praying for the Holy Spirit, it is corporately responsible for the sins that preclude the outpouring of the Holy Spirit!

 

The Trinity Doctrine – Rome’s Corrupt Form of Worship That Constitutes Unpardonable Sin


Moses traced the evils that would result from a departure from the statutes of Jehovah. Calling heaven and earth to witness, he declared that if, after having dwelt long in the Land of Promise, the people should introduce corrupt forms of worship and bow down to graven images and should refuse to return to the worship of the true God, the anger of the Lord would be aroused, and they would be carried away captive and scattered among the heathen. “Ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it,” he warned them; “ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed. And the Lord shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the Lord shall lead you. And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.” Verses 26-28. {PK 295.1}

 

Did the Church Continue to be ALL WRONG by Adopting Rome’s Trinity Doctrine?

 

In the General Conference World Session in 1980, the SDA church adopted Rome’s central doctrine on the Godhead, the famed Trinity Doctrine. This doctrine sweeps away the entire Christian economy! Does that make the church ALL WRONG? Does that constitute unpardonable sin? Here is how the Trinity Doctrine sweeps away the entire Christian economy.

 

Put in its most succinct depiction, the Trinity Doctrine teaches that there were three persons to the Godhead from eternity. That teaching totally annihilates the heavenly Sanctuary/Atonement whereby the humanity of Christ became a separate and distinct person from the Holy Spirit soul of the life of Christ, which was His state of Being before His Incarnation. The humanity of Christ was adopted by the Father into the Godhead forever. That added a person to the Godhead. So if there was always three persons before the Incarnation, after the Incarnation there would be four persons.

 

1.    The Father.

2.    The Son

3.    The Holy Spirit

4.    The humanity of the Son as a separate distinct person who never existed until the heavenly Incarnation Sanctuary/Atonement.

 

Here are the basic Bible and Spirit of Prophecy statements that expose the heresy of the Trinity Doctrine and how that doctrine sweeps away the entire Christian economy by removing the Sanctuary/Atonement that gave birth to the humanity of Christ PERSON.

 

 

"Christ declared that after his ascension, he would send to his church, as his crowning gift, the Comforter, who was to take his place. This Comforter is the Holy Spirit,--the soul of his life, the efficacy of his church, the light and life of the world. With his Spirit Christ sends a reconciling influence and a power that takes away sin.

In the gift of the Spirit, Jesus gave to man the highest good that heaven could bestow....

The Spirit was given as a regenerating agency, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail....

It is by the Spirit that the heart is made pure. Through the Spirit the believer becomes a partaker of the divine nature. Christ has given his Spirit as a divine power to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil, and to impress his own character upon the church." E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, May 19, 1904, vol. 5, p. 42.

 

·       The Bible says that God is a Spirit.

·       The Bible says that there is ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT.

·       The factor that makes all three persons to the Godhead ONE GOD, is their SAME, SHARED, ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT.

·       The Holy Spirit is the Comforter.

·       The Holy Spirit is the soul of the Divine life of Christ.

 

 If the Holy Spirit, THE COMFORTER, is the soul of His (Christ's) life, that is a very close union considering there are three distinct persons to the Godhead. That close union means that the Holy Ghost (first mentioned in Matthew) is the ghost of His pre-Incarnation state of being as DIVINE HOLY SPIRIT ONLY. Then when He was Incarnated, He had to divest Himself of that DIVINE ONLY state of being, because His humanity cumbered that Holy Spirit.

 

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 [THE COMFORTER--THE SOUL OF HIS PRE-INCARNATED LIFE] 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.

 

·       The humanity of Christ cumbered His Divine attributes.

·       Christ’s former pre-Incarnated existence of being the Holy Spirit COMFORTER, as the soul of His life, was divested (separate from) the personality (person) of His humanity and INDEPENDENT THEREOF. This made another person to the Godhead at the Incarnation. If there was already THREE PERSONS FROM ETERNITY, as the Trinity Doctrine teaches, then there would have to be FOUR after the humanity of Christ became another separate, distinct person.

·       The Trinity Doctrine sweeps away the entire Christian economy by doing away with the heavenly Incarnation Sanctuary/Atonement act (sacrifice) whereby the Son’s former BEING as Holy Spirit Divine Nature (Comforter) was divested (separate from) His humanity and an independent PERSON thereof.

·       The humanity of Christ was adopted by the Father into the heavenly throne forever, to wit:

 

Christ as a man forever – Hebrews 7:24 But this [man], because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.

He is our sacrifice, our Advocate, our Brother, bearing our human form before the Father's throne, and through eternal ages one with the race He has redeemed--the Son of Man.” Heaven, p. 73.

God has adopted human nature in the person of His Son, and has carried the same into the highest heaven. Heaven,” p. 72.


"By His life and His death, Christ has achieved even more than recovery from the ruin wrought through sin. It was Satan's purpose to bring about an eternal separation between God and man but in Christ we become more closely united to God than if we had never fallen. In taking our nature, the Saviour has bound himself to humanity by a tie that is never to be broken. Through the eternal ages He is linked with us. 'God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son.' [John 3:16]. He gave Him not only to bear our sins, and to die as our sacrifice He gave Him to the fallen race. To assure us of His immutable counsel of peace, God gave His only Begotten Son to become one of the human family forever to retain His human nature. This is the pledge that God will fulfill His word. 'Unto us a child is born unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon His shoulder.' God has adopted human nature in the person of His Son, and has carried the same into the highest heaven. It is the 'Son of man' who shares the throne of the universe. It is the 'Son of man' whose name shall be called, 'Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the prince of Peace.' [Isa. 9:6]. The I Am is the Daysman between God and humanity, laying His hand upon both. He who is 'holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,' is not ashamed to call us brethren. [Heb. 7:26 2:11.] In Christ the family of earth and the family of heaven are bound together. Christ glorified is our brother. Heaven is enshrined in humanity, and humanity is enfolded in the bosom of Infinite love." The Desire of Ages, 25.


The Kellogg Alpha Heresy removed the Sanctuary and the Atonement. How? By teaching the pantheistic notion that the Holy Spirit of God was in every living creature from creation. Were that true, there was no need of the heavenly Incarnation Sanctuary/Atonement sacrifice whereby the Holy Spirit soul of the life of Christ is given to man, because the Holy Spirit would already be in man from creation! Thus, the Sanctuary/Atonement sacrifice is rendered as GONE, TO WIT:


Sanctuary Gone Atonement Gone -- "In a representation which passed before me, I saw a certain work being done by medical missionary workers. Our ministering brethren were looking on, watching what was being done, but they did not seem to understand. The foundation of our faith, which was established by so much prayer, such earnest searching of the Scriptures, was being taken down, pillar by pillar. Our faith was to have nothing to rest upon--the sanctuary was gone, the atonement was gone." E.G. White, The Upward Look, 152.


Pantheism abolishes the need for the Sanctuary/Atonement sacrifice that provided heaven’s “highest good, crowing gift,” the indwelling of the Divine Nature Holy Spirit of Christ, because pantheism teaches that the Spirit of God is already in man from creation.


The Trinity Doctrine achieves the same end by a variation of the same theme. It teaches that there were three persons from eternity. Thus, the heavenly Sanctuary/Atonement sacrifice that gave rise to a THIRD PERSON, when the humanity of Christ was divested from His Holy Spirit person, is totally negated by teaching that three persons always existed to the Godhead. Thus, the heavenly Sanctuary/Atonement by which a THIRD PERSON accrued, is by passed—GONE! This teaching sweeps away the entire Christian economy by obfuscating the heavenly Sanctuary/Atonement sacrifice that was a necessary part of the atonement for man’s sin, and indeed provided the cure for sin—namely the gift of the Divine Nature Holy Spirit, soul of the life of Christ, which we are invited to partake of.


Idols Smuggled Into the Church and AntiChrist Respected


Anything that comes between us and Christ is an idol. Is anything that would sabotage the Sanctuary/Atonement an idol? Is Rome’s man created central doctrine, the Trinity Doctrine, which sweeps away the entire Sanctuary/Atonement sacrifice a Satanic idol? Was that idol smuggled into the SDA church? Was antichrist respected by this heinous, abominable act on the part of SDA church leaders?

 

 "Worldly policy is taking the place of true piety and wisdom that comes from above, and God will remove His prospering hand from the conference. Shall the ark of the covenant be removed from this people? Shall idols be smuggled in? Shall false principles and false precepts be brought into the sanctuary? Shall antichrist be respected? Shall the true doctrines and principles given us of God, which have made us what we are, be ignored?.... This is directly where the enemy, through blinded, unconsecrated men, is leading us." E. G. White, Manuscript 29, 1890.

 

Rome brags that the Trinity Doctrine is its central doctrine. That doctrine essentially and effectively removes the CURE for sin—the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, made possible by the heavenly Sanctuary/Atonement Incarnation sacrifice. That serves the coffers of Rome very well, because her members buy their way out of their sins, rather than being taught the sacrifice that provides the ONLY CURE for sin. Now the SDA church is teaching the same antichrist idol message. It is only natural that a false doctrine on sin would accompany Rome’s false doctrine of the Trinity, and true to form, many SDA leaders are now teaching that sin cannot be overcome this side of glorification. They fail to see the truth on the Godhead that provides a CURE for sin—the gift of the Holy Spirit soul of the life of Christ indwelling the soul of man.

 

Primitive Revival

 

Ellen White is clearly speaking of a primitive revival amongst INDIVIDUALS in ALL CHURCHES, and not just the SDA church:

 

     “Before the final visitation of God's judgments upon the earth, there will be, among the people of the Lord, such a revival of primitive godliness as has not been witnessed since apostolic times. The Spirit and power of God will be poured out upon His children. At that time many will separate themselves from those churches in which the love of this world has supplanted love for God and His Word. Many, both of ministers and people, will gladly accept those great truths which God has caused to be proclaimed at this time, to prepare a people for the Lord's second coming. The enemy of souls desires to hinder this work; and before the time for such a movement shall come, he will endeavor to prevent it, by introducing a counterfeit. In those churches which he can bring under his deceptive power, he will make it appear that God's special blessing is poured out; there will be manifest what is thought to be great religious interest. . . .” {FLB 326.2}

 

If the entire churches involved were revived, no one would separate themselves from those churches in which the love of this world has supplanted love for God and His Word. Yet many interpret the above statement ALL WRONG, by concluding that there will be a great revival in the SDA church, that shakes out all the bad from the church militant to leave it the SDA church triumphant. That is an ALL WRONG interpretation. Sinners are shaken out of Zion, by Zion, the true reformer church that is registered in heaven—the bride of Christ that is married, Isaiah 62:1-5. Ellen White clearly states that sinners are shaken out of Zion.

 

 "Characteristics of True Reformers.—Here [Isa. 8:11-14] are given the characteristics of those who shall be reformers, who will bear the banner of the third angel’s message, these 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 repairer of the breach, The restorers of paths to dwell in? It is God Their names are registered [written in Sion (Zion)—Heb. 12:22, 23] in heaven as reformers, restorers, as raising the foundations of many generations." E. G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 4, 1151 & Review and Herald, Oct. 13, 1891.

 

It is Zion that appears as about to fall when that church goes underground at the time of the National Sunday Law:

 

   “Soon I heard the voice of God which shook the heavens and the earth. ["THE LORD ALSO SHALL ROAR OUT OF ZION, AND UTTER HIS VOICE FROM JERUSALEM; AND THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH SHALL SHAKE: BUT THE LORD WILL BE THE HOPE OF HIS PEOPLE, AND THE STRENGTH OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL." JOEL 3:16. SEE ALSO Hebrews 12:26; REVELATION 16:17.] There was a mighty earthquake. Buildings were shaken down, and fell on every side. I then heard a triumphant shout of victory, loud, musical, and clear. I looked upon this company, who, a short time before, were in such distress and bondage. Their captivity was turned [THE CHURCH THAT APPEARED AS ABOUT TO FALL—GC, 616 WHEN SURROUNDED BY THE ENEMY]. A glorious light shone upon them. How beautiful they then looked! All weariness and marks of care were gone; health and beauty were seen in every countenance. Their enemies, the heathen around them, fell like dead men. They could not endure the light that shone upon the delivered, holy ones. This light and glory remained upon them until Jesus was seen in the clouds of heaven, and the faithful, tried company were changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, from glory to glory. The graves were opened and the saints came forth, clothed with immortality, crying: "Victory over death and the grave!" and together with the living saints they were caught up to meet their Lord in the air, while rich, musical shouts of glory and victory proceeded from every immortal tongue.” {1T 184.1}

 

The Church That Appears as About to Fall (FULL CONTEXT)

 

Part of the full weight of evidence as to which church it is that appears as about to fall, is this statement from The Great Controversy, p. 616:

The people of God will then be plunged into those scenes of affliction and distress described by the prophet as the time of Jacob's trouble. "Thus saith the Lord: We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. . . . All faces are turned into paleness. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it." Jeremiah 30:5-7.

Jacob's night of anguish, when he wrestled in prayer for deliverance from the hand of Esau (Genesis 32:24-30), represents the experience of God's people in the time of trouble. Because of the deception practiced to secure his father's blessing, intended for Esau, Jacob had fled for his life, alarmed by his brother's deadly threats. After remaining for many years an exile, he had set out, at God's command, to return with his wives and children, his flocks and herds, to his native country. On reaching the borders of the land, he was filled with terror by the tidings of Esau's approach at the head of a band of warriors, doubtless bent upon revenge. Jacob's company, unarmed and defenseless, seemed about to fall helpless victims of violence and slaughter. And to the burden of anxiety and fear was added the crushing weight of self-reproach, for it was his own sin that had brought this danger. His only hope was in the mercy of God; his only defense must be prayer. Yet he leaves nothing undone on his own part to atone for the wrong to his brother and to avert the threatened danger. So should the followers of Christ, as they approach the time of trouble, make every exertion to place themselves in a proper light before the people, to disarm prejudice, and to avert the danger which threatens liberty of conscience.” The Great Controversy, p. 616.

 

Now the original statement on the church as appearing as about to fall IN ITS FULL CONTEXT:

 

MR No. 994 - An Appeal to Live the Truth and Share It


     For weeks I have not been able to sleep after half past three o'clock. My mind is deeply exercised in regard to our condition as a people. We ought to be far in advance of any other people on the earth because we have greater light and greater knowledge of the truth, which lays us under increased accountability to advance that light and not only profess to believe the truth but to practice it. When we do practice the truth we are then following Jesus, who is the light of the world; and if we as a people are not constantly elevating, becoming more and more spiritually minded, we are becoming like the Pharisees--self-righteous--while we do not the will of God. {12MR 318.1}


     We must have a greater nearness to God. Much less of self and much more of Jesus Christ and His grace must be brought into our everyday life. We are living in an important period of this world's history. The end of all things is at hand; the sands of time are fast running out; soon in heaven it will be said: "It is done." "He that is holy, let him be holy still," "he which is filthy, let him be filthy still" [Rev. 21:6; 22:11]. {12MR 318.2}


     Let our testimonies be sharpened up; let us have a firmer hold on God. I cannot refrain from prayer at one, two, and three o'clock in the morning for the Lord to work upon the hearts of the people. I think of all heaven being interested in the work that is going on upon the earth. Ministering angels are waiting about the throne to instantly obey the mandate of Jesus Christ to answer every prayer offered in earnest living faith. I think of how many who profess the truth are keeping it apart from their lives. They do not bring its sanctifying, refining, spiritualizing power into their hearts. I think how this grieves Jesus. {12MR 318.3}


     I think of His great sorrow as He wept over Jerusalem, exclaiming, "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not" [Luke 13:34]! God forbid that these words shall apply to those who have great light and blessings. In the rejecting of Jerusalem it was because great privileges were abused, which brought the denunciation upon all who lightly regarded the great opportunities and precious light that were entrusted to their keeping. Privileges do not commend us to God, but they commend God to us. No people are saved because they have great light and special advantages, for these high and heavenly favors only increase their responsibility. {12MR 319.1}


     The more and increased light God has given makes the receiver more responsible. It does not place the receiver in any safer position unless the privileges are wisely improved, prized, and used to advance God's glory. Christ said, "Woe unto thee, Chorazin! Woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes" [Matt. 11:21]. {12MR 319.2}


     When Jerusalem was divorced from God it was because of her sins. She fell from an exalted height that Tyre and Sidon had never reached. And when an angel falls he becomes a fiend. The depth of our ruin is measured by the exalted light to which God has raised us in His great goodness and unspeakable mercy. Oh, what privileges are granted to us as a people! And if God spared not His people that He loved, because they refused to walk in the light, how can He spare the people whom He has blessed with the light of heaven in having opened to them the most exalted truth ever entrusted to mortal man to give to the world? {12MR 319.3}


     We are far from being the people God would have us to be, because we do not elevate the soul and refine the character in harmony with the wonderful unfolding of God's truth and His purposes. "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people" [Prov. 14:34]. Sin is a disorganizer. Wherever it is cherishedin the individual heart, in the household, in the churchthere is disorder, strife, variance, enmity, envy, jealousy, because the enemy of man and of God has the controlling power over the mind. But let the truth be loved and brought into the life, as well as advocated, and that man or woman will hate sin and will be a living representative of Jesus Christ to the world. {12MR 320.1}

 

    The people claiming to believe the truth will not be condemned because they had not the light, but because they had great light and did not bring their hearts to the test of God's great moral standard of righteousness. The people who claim to believe the truth must be elevated by living it out. Real Bible religion must leaven the life, refine and ennoble the character, making it more and more like the divine model. Then will the home be vocal with prayer, with thanksgiving and praise to God. Angels will minister in the home and accompany the worshiper to the house of prayer. {12MR 320.2}

 

    Let the churches who claim to believe the truth, who are advocating the law of God, keep that law and depart from all iniquity. Let the individual members of the church resist the temptations to practice evils and indulge in sin. Let the church commence the work of purification before God by repentance, humiliation, deep heart searching, for we are in the antitypical day of atonementsolemn hour fraught with eternal results. {12MR 320.3}


     Let those who teach the truth present it as it is in Jesus. Under the subduing, sanctifying, refining, influence of the truth of God they are as clean vessels. Let them be leavened with Bible religion, and what an influence would go forth from them to the world! Let the individual members of the church be pure, steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the love of Jesus, and they will then be a light to the world. Let the men standing as watchmen and as shepherds of the flock proclaim the solemn truth, sound the notes of warning to all people, nations and tongues. Let them be living representatives of the truth they advocate, and honor God's law by strict and holy compliance with its requirements, walking before the Lord in purity, in holiness, and a power will attend the proclamation of the truth that will reflect light everywhere. {12MR 321.1}


     God never forsakes people or individuals until they forsake Him. Outward opposition will not cause the faith of God's people, who are keeping His commandments, to become dim. The neglect to bring purity and truth into practice will grieve the Spirit of God and weaken them because God is not in their midst to bless. Internal corruption will bring the denunciations of God upon this people as it did upon Jerusalem. Oh, let pleading voices, let earnest prayer be heard, that those who preach to others shall not themselves be castaways. My brethren, we know not what is before us, and our only safety is in following the Light of the world. God will work with us and for us if the sins which brought His wrath upon the old world, upon Sodom and Gomorrah and upon ancient Jerusalem, do not become our crime. {12MR 321.2}


     The least transgression of God's law brings guilt upon the transgressor, and without earnest repentance and forsaking of sin he will surely become an apostate. You inquire in regard to the course which should be pursued to secure the rights of our people to worship according to the dictates of our own conscience. This has been a burden on my soul for some time, whether it would be a denial of our faith and an evidence that our trust was not fully in God. But I call to mind many things God has shown me in the past in regard to things of a similar character, as the draft and other things. I can speak in the fear of God, it is right we should use every power we can to avert the pressure that is being brought to bear upon our people. I know that were our people spiritualized by the truth the greatest love would be maintained. {12MR 322.1}


     [We are] not to provoke those who have accepted this spurious sabbath, an institution of the Papacy, in the place of God's holy Sabbath. Their not having the Bible arguments in their favor makes them all the more angry and determined to supply the place of arguments that are wanting in the Word of God, by the power of their might. The force of persecution follows the steps of the dragon. Therefore great care should be exercised to give no provocation. And again let us as a people, as far as possible, cleanse the camp of moral defilement and aggravating sins. When sin is making its march upon the people who claim to be elevating the moral standard of righteousness, how can we expect God to turn His power in our behalf and save us as a people that did righteousness? {12MR 322.2}


     All the policy in the world cannot save us from a terrible sifting, and all the efforts made with high authorities will not lift from us the scourging of God, just because sin is cherished. If as a people we do not keep ourselves in the faith and not only advocate with pen and voice the commandments of God, but keep them every one, not violating a single precept knowingly, then weakness and ruin will come upon us. It is a work that we must attend to in every one of our churches. Each man must be a Christian. {12MR 323.1}


     Let the sin of pride be put away, let all superfluities of dress be overcome, and repentance toward God be exercised for the highhanded robbery toward Him, which has withheld money that should flow into the treasury to sustain the work of God in its mission fields. Let the work of reformation, of true conversion, be set before and urged upon the people. Let our works, our deportment, correspond with the work for this time, that we may say, "Follow me as I follow Christ." Let us humble our souls before God by humiliation, fasting and prayer, repentance of sin, and putting it away. {12MR 323.2}


     The voice of the true watchman needs now to be heard all along the line, "The morning cometh, and also the night" [Isa. 21:12]. The trumpet must give a certain sound, for we are in the great day of the Lord's preparation. All the struggles to carry our appeals to the highest authorities in our land, however earnest and strong and eloquent may be the pleas in our favor, will not bring about that which we desire unless the Lord works by His Holy Spirit in the heart of those who claim to believe the truth. We may struggle as a mighty man in swimming against the current of Niagara, but we shall fail unless the Lord pleads in our behalf. God will be honored among His people. They must be pure, they must be divested of self, steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. The Lord will elevate the humblest soul that trusts in Him. He will unite His power with human effort if that man will honor Him as did Daniel. But as a people we need the beauty of righteousness, holiness, and truth. The most harmonious theory will not save us. The God that ruled in Babylon is the same God that rules now. {12MR 323.3}

 

    There are many doctrines current in our world. There is many a religion current that numbers its thousands and tens of thousands, but there is but one that bears the superscription and the stamp of God. There is a religion of man and a religion of God. We must have our souls riveted to the eternal Rock. Everything in God's world, both men and doctrines and nature itself, is fulfilling God's sure word of prophecy and accomplishing His grand and closing work in this world's history. {12MR 324.1}


     We are to be ready and waiting for the orders of God. Nations will be stirred to their very center. Support will be withdrawn from those who proclaim God's only standard of righteousness, the only sure test of character. And all who will not bow to the decrees of the national councils and obey the national laws to exalt the sabbath instituted by the man of sin to the disregard of God's holy day, will feel, not the oppressive power of popery alone, but of the Protestant world, the image of the beast. {12MR 324.2}

 

Note: It is all very obvious from the full context that the church that appears as about to fall is Zion, the church triumphant, AFTER THE DECREE TO EXALT THE SABBATH INSTITUTED BY THE MAN OF SIN—THE SUNDAY LAW. The “church as about to fall” statement is misapplied by SDA church leaders to refer to the church militant. That could not be further from the truth. The apostate church militant will fall. It will be brought down to hell. It will experience another LITERAL fulfillment of Ezekiel 9. End note.

 

     “Satan will work his miracles to deceive; he will set up his power as supreme. The church may appear as about to fall, but it does not fall. It remains, while the sinners in Zion will be sifted outthe chaff separated from the precious wheat. 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. We must be divested of our self-righteousness and arrayed in the righteousness of Christ. {12MR 324.3}


     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]. 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. {12MR 325.1}


     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. {12MR 325.2}


     Dear brethren, the Lord is coming. Lift up your thoughts and heads and rejoice. Oh, we would think that those who hear the joyful news, who claim to love Jesus, would be filled with joy unutterable and full of glory. This is the good, the joyful news which should electrify every soul, which should be repeated in our homes, and told to those whom we meet on the street. What more joyful news can be communicated! Caviling and contention with believers or unbelievers is not the work God has given us to do. {12MR 325.3}


     If Christ is my Saviour, my sacrifice, my atonement, then I shall never perish. Believing on Him, I have life forevermore. Oh, that all who believe the truth would believe in Jesus as their own Saviour. I do not mean that cheap faith unsupported by works, but that earnest, living, constant, abiding faith, that eats the flesh and drinks the blood of the Son of God. I want not only to be pardoned for the transgression of God's holy law, but I want to be lifted into the sunshine of God's countenance. Not simply to be admitted to heaven, but to have an abundant entrance. {12MR 326.1}


     Are we so insensible as a peculiar people, a holy nation, to the inexpressible love that God has manifested for us? Salvation is not to be baptized, not to have our names upon the church books, not to preach the truth. But it is a living union with Jesus Christ, to be renewed in heart, doing the works of Christ in faith and labor of love, in patience, meekness, and hope. Every soul united to Christ will be a living missionary to all around him. He will labor for those near and those afar off. He will have no sectional feeling, no interest merely to build up one branch of the work over which he presides and there let his zeal end. All will work with interest to make every branch strong. There will be no self-love, no selfish interest. The cause is one, the truth a great whole. {12MR 326.2}


     Well may the question be asked with earnest, anxious heart, "Is envy cherished, is jealousy permitted to find a place in my heart?" If so, Christ is not there. "Do I love the law of God, is the love of Jesus Christ in my heart?" If we love one another as Christ has loved us, then we are getting ready for the blessed heaven of peace and rest. There is no struggling there to be first, to have the supremacy; all will love their neighbor as themselves. Oh, that God would open the understanding and speak to the hearts of our churches by arousing the individual members. {12MR 326.3}


     The Lord appoints and sends forth ministers not only to preach, for this is a small part of His work, but to minister, to educate the people not to be fighters but to be examples of piety. There are workers in every department appointed to do their work. When Jesus ascended on high He gave some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers. Some have entered the work with a human commission rather than the divine. They have educated themselves as debaters, and the churches under their care show the character of their work. They were not ready, they were not fitted for the work. Their hearts are not right with God. In short, they have a theory but not true conversion and sanctification through the truth. The great issue so near at hand will weed out those whom God has not appointed, and He will have a pure, true, sanctified ministry prepared for the latter rain. {12MR 327.1}


     Our prayer should ascend to the throne of grace with fervor for the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers into His vineyard. My heart aches as I look around upon the mission fields and see so feeble efforts to get the truth before the people. No censure can be attached to our leading men. I believe, brethren, you are one with me in heart, in sentiment, in regard to our great need, and in the earnest desire and earnest efforts to meet the mind of the Spirit of God in these things. {12MR 327.2}


     Those who are at ease in Zion need to be aroused. Great is their accountability who bear the truth and yet feel no weight or burden for souls. Oh, for men and women professing the truth to arouse, to take on the yoke of Christ, to lift His burdens. There are wanted those who will not have merely a nominal interest but a Christlike interest, unselfishan intense ardor that will not flag under difficulties or cool because iniquity abounds. {12MR 327.3}


     I want to speak to the ears of our people in America in every church. Awake from the dead, and Christ will give you life. Souls are perishing for the light of truth as it is in Jesus. We are standing upon the very borders of the eternal world. Fair-weather Christians will not be wanted for this work. The sentimental and tasteful religion is not needed for this time. There must be intensity brought into our faith and in the proclamation of truth. I tell you, a new life is proceeding from satanic agencies to work with a power we have not hitherto realized. And shall not a new power from above take possession of God's people? The truth, sanctifying in its influence, must be urged upon the people. There must be earnest supplications offered to God, agonizing prayer to Him, that our hopes as a people may not be founded on suppositions, but on eternal realities. We must know for ourselves, by the evidence of God's Word, whether we are in the faith, going to heaven or not. The moral standard of character is God's law. Do we meet its requirements? Are the Lord's people bringing their property, their time, their talents, and all their influence into the work for this time? Let us arouse. "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God [Col. 3:1].”—Letter 55, 1886. (Written from Basel, Switzerland, to G. I. Butler and S. N. Haskell, December 8, 1886.). E.G. White, White Estate Washington, D. C. July 7, 1983 Entire Ms. {12MR 328.1}

 

The words of God to ancient Israel have a solemn warning to the church and its leaders today. Of Israel the Lord said, “I have written to him the great things of My law; but they were counted as a strange thing.” Hosea 8:12. And to the priests and teachers He declared, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee; ... seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” Hosea 4:6. {COL 306.2}


Shall the warnings from God be passed by unheeded? Shall the opportunities for service be unimproved? Shall the world’s scorn, the pride of reason, conformity to human customs and traditions, hold the professed followers of Christ from service to Him? Will they reject God’s word as the Jewish leaders rejected Christ? The result of Israel’s sin is before us. Will the church of today take warning?” {COL 306.3}

 

We have come full circle. Do you now see how and why God’s end-time ‘chosen people” are destroyed for a lack of knowledge because they have REJECTED KNOWLEDGE—knowledge provided to them by the gift of the Holy Spirit to the church via Ellen G. White.

 

Hsa 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

 

Becoming Laodicean "If the church of God becomes LUKEWARM [LAODICEAN] it does not stand in favor with God any more than do the churches that are represented as having fallen and become the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Those who have had opportunities to hear and receive the truth, and who have united with the Seventh-day Adventist church, calling themselves the commandment keeping people of God, and yet possess no more vitality and consecration to God than do the nominal churches, will receive of the plagues of God just as verily as the churches who oppose the law of God." E.G. White, Letter 35, 1898.

 

If Laodicea is not regarded with any more favor by God than the fallen churches, and the call of Laodicea is to all churches, then there is no difference between Laodicea and the fallen churches as far as being in a fallen state is concerned. Different churches believe different aspects of Babylonian teachings, but Ellen White equates them all as far as falling from the favor of God is concerned, and as far as constituting the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird, cf. Revelation 18:1, 2.

 

"We must as a people arouse and cleanse the camp of Israel. Licentiousness, unlawful intimacy, and unholy practices are coming in among us in a large degree...We are in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted and filled with every foul spirit, a cage for every unclean and hateful bird, and will we be clear unless we make decided movements to cure the existing evil? E. G. White, Manuscript Releases No. 449, pp. 17, 18. (Letter 51, 1886 to Elder Butler) Testimonies on Sexual Behavior, Adultery, and Divorce, p. 193.

 

The professing SDA church has rejected knowledge on the following serious issues:

 

·       Rejection of God’s counsel on the Godhead—the most fundamental doctrine of Christianity, around which all other beliefs cluster.

·       Rejection of the truth on the human nature of Christ to teach an antichrist view.

·       Rejection of God’s CONDITIONAL counsel on fellowship, conspiracy and confederation with the works of darkness—ecumenical liaison with Babylon’s Ministerial Associations, National and World Councils.

·       Rejection of God’s counsel on corporate responsibility for apostasy.

·       Rejection of God’s CONDITION to sigh and cry for ALL THE ABOMINATIONS in the church—because those abominations were adopted and brought in by leaders who have been ring-leaders in the apostasy.

·       Rejection of God’s CONDITION of buying Gold tried in the fire—that would alter the Laodicean state of the church.

·       Rejection of God’s counsel to remain separate from the world and churches that cannot be distinguished from the world, EW, 273.

·       Rejection of God’s to cry aloud to show His people their sins—the dumb-dog leaders will NEVER AGAIN BARK to show God’s people their sins—5T 211—SO HOW DOES THE CHURCH HAVE A REVIVAL? Only individuals will revive from the abominable state of apostasy.

·       Rejection of God’s CONDITION that the church should arouse and cleanse the camp of licentiousness, whereby ministers who commit licentious acts are merely transferred from one brothel to another!

·       Rejected God’s counsel to removed OPEN SINNERS from the camp if they will not repent.

·       Rejection of God’s counsel that the leaders of His people lead them to destruction. Isaiah. 9:16.

·       Rejection of God’s prophesy concerning the final fate of the SDA once church militant—that it refuses the CONDITIONS, so God’s promises are not fulfilled to it.

·       Thinking themselves ALL RIGHT, when they are ALL WRONG—thus REJECTING the Holy Spirit’s counsel to the Laodicean church via Ellen White.

·       Rejection of Ellen White as a true prophet by much of the SDA world church—especially in Europe and South America. Ironically, this is a rejection of the Holy Spirit gift to the church, while the church prays for the Holy Spirit! Amazing foolish virgin folly!

·       Considering gross apostasy abominations as mere faults and defects.

·       Considering sighing and crying for all the abominations as TRITE AND UNNECESSARY CRITICISM OF THE CHURCH. Sighing and crying for all the abominations includes the Isaiah 58:1 instruction to show God’s people their sins.

·       Rejection of God’s Word per Isaiah 37:31, 32.

·       Rejection of the knowledge that another literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9, demands another coming out per Isaiah 37:31, 32.

·       Rejection of the knowledge that a terrible Ezekiel 9 slaughter begins at the church BEFORE probation closes.

"Christ has plainly taught that those who persist in open sin must be separated from the church, but He has not committed to us the work of judging character and motive. He knows our nature too well to entrust this work to us. Should we try to uproot from the church those whom we suppose to be spurious Christians, we should be sure to make mistakes. Often we regard as hopeless subjects the very one whom Christ is drawing to Himself, it would perhaps extinguish their last hope.  Many who think themselves Christians will at last be found wanting. Many will be in heaven who their neighbors supposed would never enter there.  Man judges from appearance, but God judges the heart. The tares and the wheat are to grow together until the harvest; and the harvest is the end of probationary time." COL 71.

 

One does not have to judge character or motive to recognize open sin! Some call sighing and crying for the abominations “judging,” but all Adventists judge when they become Adventists—by judging that Babylon is fallen, and that Rome is antichrist. Adventists don’t mind judging the abominations of the fallen churches, but many of them do mind having their abominations judged. This is not a fair and proper attitude vis-à-vis truth and justice.

 

It is most interesting to me, in regard to judging, that many who are most adamant against my “judging” the church, are very critical of me for pointing out all the abominations for which God says we are to sigh and cry, and that even our being sealed for salvation is CONDITIONAL to said sighing and crying for all the abominations! I say again that all make judgments of other belief systems when they become Seventh-day Adventists.

 

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

 

The reason open sin apostasy is not removed from the camp is because SDA leaders are RING-LEADERS in the apostasy, and they will allow NOTHING TO STAND IN THEIR WAY.

 

God have mercy on His stiff-necked, stubborn, know it all, thinking they are ALL RIGHT, when they are ALL WRONG people, who THINK that they are the apple of God’s eye, is my prayer. May God awaken them to their true condition before it is forever too late.

 

The apple of God’s eye is the 144,000 Zion bride that is married, Isaiah 62:1-5. This refers to the true reformers who are registered in heaven as (Sion) Zion, the true watchmen on the walls of Zion. So here again, professing Adventists are ALL WRONG in regarding themselves and/or their omega of apostasy new movement “church,” from which God has been removed (1SM 205), as being the apple of God’s eye.

 

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