Sabbath ~ April 9, 2016

 

       In looking around at the world around us, there is much to distract as we see Satan’s agents struggling to incite war, racial strife, riot, bloodshed, death, destruction, &c. I say struggling because they are. Their goals they are not able to achieve. Reducing the population of the world in any way possible, is just not working.
 
World War III just is not happening.
 
The four angels are holding the four winds. Revelation 7:1
 
        God is in control. The four winds will be held untill Christ gets on the cloud to leave Heaven, headed for earth. EP261 (Early Publications, page 261)
 
        It must be a time of peace in order for the third angel to do his work. EP296 That work will end and probation will close.
 
       If the Loud Cry is coming as the Midnight Cry, EP413, it seems reasonable that it will go, or end, also, as the Midnight Cry; meaning, that when the third angel’s work is done, God will send everyone home. The burden for sinners will be lifted and mercy’s voice will fall silent. Life Incidents,p186
 
       Then it is that some will search for hearing God’s word, but they will not find it. Amos 8:11 Mankind’s probation will have closed… forever. Then there is an unknown period of time untill Christ takes his seat on the cloud to come to earth. EP261
 
       Then the four angels stop holding the four winds. Then it is that Satan has full control of the wicked. Then it is that people will turn on each other with satanic fury. A rage burning in their hearts, seen in their eyes, true terror stalks the land, brother against brother, sister against sister; all the while the seven last plagues will be falling and taking their toll; for that is their purpose, to destroy man off the earth. 1858GC,p200-201&1SP,p85 (1858 Great Controversy & Spirit of Prophecy, Vol.1)
 
       Then it is that Satan gets his way. His agents are delighted with the reduction of earth’s masses, but not with the very painful sores they bear in their bodies. Revelation 16:2 All this rage, hatred, bloodthirsty revenge, gets turned on the righteous. If they have any food, it is taken with violence. 1849 Broadside They flee. It does little good. They are followed, hunted, cornered, and mocked as the wicked prepare to slay them. 1858GC,p201-204
 
        Now is the time to prepare for that hour. Now it is peaceful. Now it is easy to trust in God, have faith, read God’s instructions, &c. And now it is the time of testing, this patient, waiting, watching, time. TNo.16,p96 Now we are tested by little annoyances, little things that irritate, like the drag of time passing with seemingly nothing happening.
 
       I look up at the stars, knowing this future that awaits, knowing that if time lasts longer I may go to my grave,… and see none of it; untill I get called from that grave, if I have been faithful. As I look at the stars, thinking these thoughts, I determine in my heart that I will set my face like a flint, I will be harder than adamant. Isaiah 50:7 & Ezekiel 3:9 I choose to trust in God’s word. I will PRAISE HIS NAME! when it hurts.
 
       And here comes that irritation. Again. But I know that every time I resist evil I get stronger for the next battle. God has revealed himself to me in my life a few times. He saved me physically from death at least twice. He saved me from a besetting sin I could not overcome and get the victory on my own. I know I am a sinner. I know I am a lost man if I allow pride to grow in my life. All I have to do is look back at my life, and I know, without God’s hand in my life I would be lost.
 
       I know that Christ is all in all for me. Without Christ I am not worthy to be a doormat in Heaven. My night cometh. I want to be found watching, faithfully. Then when Christ comes he will not say, “What, could ye not watch with me one hour?” Matthew 26:40 I know without Christ I am a lost man.
 
       I pray to the Father that he will increase my faith, help me to die to the world and it’s devices of distraction, spiritual weaknesses, the enchanted ground. He has given me a work to do. By so doing doubtless I will grow by God’s providence, spiritually.
 
       I heard the Robin’s evening song as even they sing God’s praise. Just a few days past I saw on the ground the feathers and the beak of a Robin that met it’s end.
 
       I know the end is near, it’s very near. We can trust in God, even in death and through the grave. We can… trust in God.

In spite of what you or I may feel at any time, we have a God who made us, who, with the tender care of a loving parent, watches over us ensuring our safety. He never sleeps. He lives forever. Our hope rests in the things he says.

 

Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are carried from the womb: And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you. Isaiah 46:3-4

    You want security?, right here it is. We can trust our God. Because he never changes we have true security. We found our hope in what he says because he never changes. Because of this we know that even if we die before he sends his Son the second time, we will live again!

 

It’s important to keep these things in mind as we go through our day. It’s a part of the armor we can use to keep Satan’s suggestions out of our minds. It keeps our faces shining with heaven’s light, the light of faith, hope, and trust in a living God!

With regard to the mass of world events swirling around our heads, an interesting item has popped up. Zero Hedge (dot com) has put up a page showing that the G7 nations, as a whole, have a consolidated debt at a record high of 440%.

This is a significant data point for a reason. Historically, whenever a nation has reached the level of 250% of debt to GDP a war “breaks out.” The fact that the G7 have a 440% level of debt to GDP and we are in a time of peace is very significant.

We consider this to be proof positive that God is restraining the powers of earth to prevent WWIII, and the destruction of Billions of lives. In short, a fulfillment of this prophecy.

I saw that this world was rocked in the cradle of security so that communications might not be cut off from place to place, and that messengers might have full time to carry the message to the children of God, that they receive it and be sealed with the seal of the living God, and be prepared to pass through the time of trouble such as never was. I saw that it must be a time of peace in order for the servants of God to do their work for souls. Vision of May 14, 1851. This can be downloaded for free from our download page.

Choose file No. 3, it’s at the top of the page.

Because of this global positioning, economially, I would guess that God is doing this positioning in preparation for the loud cry. It is my opinion, that America, the home base of this message, will be ground zero for the main event, to be watched closely by the rest of the world, on TV and the net.

It is the two horned beast, No. 6, page 22, that makes Sunday a test, not the image. Therefore, America, in some form, will remain through, to the time of trouble such as never was. At that time, it matters not what happens politically, everyone is sealed, Christ is on the way, the wicked soon to lay, all glory of man in the dust of the earth for God’s glory.

Eternity is very, very near. It’s high time to be ripening for Heaven!

“And when thou art converted.”

You will remember that, that’s what Jesus told Peter. But Peter had been with the Word all this time, about three years. Why is it that he was not converted? Apparently ten of the twelve were converted.

Daniel says, “Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried.” Under the second angel’s message about 50,000 people came out of the fallen churches and waited on October 22, 1844 for Christ to come. He did not come. They were “purified, and made white, and tried,” and many of them failed the test. They left the faith. By some estimates there were only about fifty who remained faithful.

What is it in the heart of man that “I” would fail the test?

It’s amazing that Christ said this about Nathanael, “Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!” How could he say that about the man? Because he is God. God reads our hearts and knows who should be saved and who should not get the hidden words of God, the mystery of kingdom of God, Mark 4:11.

On this site we are following God’s instruction in Matthew.

There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Matthew 10:26-27

You might get a lot of information, you might be witness to much, as was Simon in Acts 8, but, you might not be right with God. Remember that he reads every secret of your heart. All this might be the source of these words.

I turned to look for the Advent people in the world, but could not find them, when a voice said to me, Look again, and look a little higher. At this, I raised my eyes and see a strait and narrow path, cast up high above the world. On this path the Advent people were traveling to the City, which was at the farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the first end of the path, which an angel told me was the Midnight Cry. This light shone all along the path and gave light for their feet so they might not stumble. And if they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus, who was just before them, leading them to the City, they were safe. But soon some grew weary, and said the City was a great way off, and they expected to have entered it before. Then Jesus would encourage them by raising his glorious right arm, and from his arm came a glorious light which waved over the Advent band, and they shouted, Hallelujah! Others rashly denied the light behind them, and said that it was not God that had led them out so far. The light behind them went out which left their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and got their eyes off the mark and lost sight of Jesus, and fell off the path down in the dark and wicked world below. It was just as impossible for them to get on the path again & go to the City, as all the wicked world which God had rejected. They fell all the way along the path one after another, until we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus’ coming. The Day-Star

The words in red communicate certain things without stating them explicitly. The word “they” indicates those who profess the truth. The path is the strait and narrow way to the City, and it should be remembered that it goes all the way to the City. The falling off the path is, of course, leaving the faith.

Here is the critical point, people are falling off the path, or, leaving the faith “until we heard the voice of God.” This hearing of God’s voice happens AT the deliverance of the saints, 1858 Great Controversy, page 205. Meaning that some, apparently, will be giving up the faith during the time of trouble such as never was, the time of Jacob’s trouble. It would appear that they were not sealed even though professing the faith and going through, or nearly through, the time of trouble. God, who knows all things, knows what none of the rest of the saints knows, that is, that this person is not right with him and should not be saved.

Like Peter, they know not themselves. They withstand some trials, some of the time of trouble such as never was, some hardships, but God reads their hearts, their inner secrets, and there is no more time for character formation. If this be so, doubtless they will not suffer much in the fires of the last day. We have so much to be grateful for that God is just and righteous altogether.

Be careful with God. This is not a game, not a social club, this is real.

As we contemplate the probable near future… this portion from No. 8 looks worthy of a review. Too many times we get in a rut and forget to broaden our reading to full scope of what we have available. This reads a little differently, but is in perfect harmony with the 1858 Great Controversy as well as the rest of the Spirit of Prophecy.

The Future. p. 112, Para. 3, [8OT].
At the transfiguration Jesus was glorified by his Father. We hear him say, “Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.” Thus before his betrayal and crucifixion he was strengthened for his last dreadful sufferings. p. 112, Para. 4, [8OT].

As the members of the body of Christ approach the period of their last conflict, “the time of Jacob’s trouble,” they will grow up into Christ, and will partake largely of his Spirit. As the third message swells to a loud cry, and as great power and glory attends the closing work, the faithful people of God will partake of that glory. It is the latter rain which revives and strengthens them to pass through the time of trouble. Their faces [minds] will shine [teach God’s Word] with the glory of that light [the Word] which attends the third angel. p. 112, Para. 5, [8OT].

I saw that God would in a wonderful manner preserve his people through the time of trouble. As Jesus poured out his soul in agony in the garden, they will earnestly cry and agonize with him day and night for deliverance. The decree will go forth that they must disregard the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and honor the first day, or lose their lives; but they will not yield, and trample under their feet the Sabbath of the Lord, and honor an institution of Papacy. Satan’s host, and wicked men, will surround them, and exult over them, because there will seem to be no way of escape for them. But in the midst of their revelry and triumph, there is peal upon peal of the loudest thunder. The heavens have gathered blackness, and are only illuminated by the blazing light and terrible glory from Heaven, as God utters his voice from his holy habitation. p. 112, Para. 6, [8OT].

Here is the special resurrection of only the righteous saints that have “died in faith under the third angel’s message, keeping the Sabbath.” 1858 Great Controversy, page 205.

The foundations of the earth shake, buildings totter and fall with a terrible crash. The sea boils like a pot, and the whole earth is in terrible commotion. The captivity of the righteous is turned, and with sweet and solemn whisperings they say to each other, “We are delivered. It is the voice of God.” With solemn awe they listen to the words of the voice. The wicked hear, but understand not the words of the voice of God. They fear and tremble, while the saints rejoice. Satan and his angels, and wicked men, who had been exulting that the people of God were in their power, that they might destroy them from off the earth, witness the glory conferred upon those who have honored the holy law of God. They behold the faces of the righteous lighted up, and reflecting the image of Jesus. Those who were so eager to destroy the saints, could not endure the glory resting upon the delivered ones, and they fell like dead men to the earth. Satan and evil angels fled from the presence of the saints glorified. Their power to annoy them was gone forever. p. 113, Para. 1, [8OT].

Remember that the image of Jesus can only be acquired this side of the close of probation. We must get ready now!

As further proof of yesterday’s posted position, we present this unpublished manuscript, and as such it is not yet authenticated. A couple of lines were published, see the reference, but not the rest. Interestingly, I had a copy of this manuscript from another source, but I have no idea how they got it. It must have been released to some specific purpose and was leaked to others. I am not knowing.

This was talked about the other day on this post which details how the White Estate lied about a line missing from the text, which was not missing. What this document does do is state explicitly that we are in the investigative judgment. You decide.

Manuscript 1, 1857.
Written in June, somewhere in Vermont. This manuscript is titled, “ Lack o f Appreciatio n o f t he M inistry” , Portions of this manuscript appear in Last Day Events, pp. 234-235.

I was shown some things concerning the preaching brethren. I saw their energies and strength were exhausted in laboring for a church that does not generally appreciate their labors. I saw that it would be better for the church to be thrown upon their own effort for a time. I saw they must be laborers. I saw that the principal part of Bro. Hutchins’ and Bro. Sperry’s labor has been to keep the church together. They have taken the burden of the church upon themselves, to dig around it, labor and labor for them until the church would, after the brethren had gotten a little victory, enjoy it, but make scarcely any effort for it themselves, in a few weeks are sleepy and need the same effort made for them again. They tire and exhaust the strength of the worn-out servants of God. Again the servants of God plow through and get a little victory,  to be lost as easily as before. But when, with their own faith and wrestling with God, they obtain the victory, then it is lasting. They know then how much it costs, and they will preserve their consecration. I saw that so much of the efforts of these brethren should not be spent upon a world-loving and sleepy church. I saw that those who have not yet embraced the truth are anxious to hear, and these brethren should go where, at the present time, they can accomplish the most good with their feeble strength.

The church must arise. They do not half heed the message to the Laodicean church. There are those in the church who love this world better than they love Jesus. They love their treasures here better than they love heaven or eternal life, and with their earthly treasure they will perish. The True Witness now speaks to a lukewarm church. Be zealous and repent; but they scarcely hear or heed the message. A few are afflicting their souls. A few are heeding the counsel of the True Witness. Unless the church speedily arouses they will go into darkness, be ensnared and overcome by the enemy.

I saw we are in the investigative judgment. Soon judgment will be pronounced on our works and our actions which are passing in review before God. A solemn, awful period! Who realize this great work? I saw that those who do not now appreciate, study, and dearly prize the Word of God, spoken by His servants, will have cause to mourn bitterly hereafter.

I saw that the Lord in judgment will, at the close of time, walk through the earth; the fearful plagues will begin to fall. Then those who have despised God’s Word, those who have lightly esteemed it, shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east; they shall run to and fro to seek the Word of the Lord and shall not find it. A famine is in the land for hearing the Word. The ministers of God will have done their last work, offered their last prayers, shed their last bitter tear for a rebellious church and an ungodly people. Their last solemn warning has been given.

O then how quickly would houses and lands, dollars that have been miserly hoarded and cherished and tightly grasped, be given for some consolation by those who have professed the truth and have not lived it out, for the way of salvation to be explained or to hear a hopeful word, or a prayer, or an exhortation from their ministers. But no, they must hunger and thirst on in vain; their thirst will never be quenched, no consolation can they get; their cases are decided and eternally fixed. It is a fearful, awful time. There can much be done now to bring in those jewels who are hid beneath the rubbish, who will highly prize the truth as it falls from the lips of God’s servants.

I was shown that many of the church have at this time of peril more care for their farm and their cattle than they have for the servants of God, or the truth which they preach; their labors are so common among them that the laborers are not considered worthy of their hire. His strength must be exhausted, his life embittered by scarcely a well day, must spend and be spent, and yet the church asleep as to these things.

But I saw that God was not asleep. Said the angel, Jesus says, I know thy works; yes, selfish, professed Sabbath-keepers. God knows thy works. Ye covetous, world-loving Sabbath-keepers, said the angel, God knows thy works. I saw that every privation the servants of God have endured are all written in the book, every tear is bottled up. Every pang of agony they have endured is recorded in the book. I know thy works, says the True Witness. All that has been done to help the servants of God is all recorded; all of it is written in the book. All the selfish withholding from God’s servants are all written in the book. All thy deeds, said the angel, are passing in review before God.

I saw that the church now must afflict their souls. They must labor, they must agonize or go down. I saw it was best to leave the churches to work for themselves now, that they may feel their weakness while there is a chance for them to zealously repent and buy gold, white raiment, and eye salve, the treasures they must possess if they would have eternal life.

It is amazing to me all the twists and turns that the counterfeit SOP takes, creating “confusion and every evil work,” which is exactly where the church is today. These smooth things are designed to comfort those who are not really interested in Heaven anyway, they are just along for the social experience.

Today we have two items from the counterfeit SOP. This is the smooth stuff.

12-15 (chs. 3:5; 13:8; 21:27; 22:19). The Book of Life.–When we become children of God, our names are written in the Lamb’s book of life, and they remain there until the time of the investigative judgment. Then the name of every individual will be called, and his record examined, by Him who declares, “I know thy works.” If in that day it shall appear that all our wicked deeds have not been fully repented of, our names will be blotted from the book of life, and our sins will stand against us (ST Aug. 6, 1885). {7BC 987.6}

Notice how the above statement is framed. Notice the details of the words. This statement places the investigative judgment in the future... somewheretime. Most studying SDAs understand that the investigative judgment started October 22, 1844, when Christ went into the Most Holy place. His ministration ended in the Holy and a different ministration was taken up in the Most Holy.

The investigative judgment is part of Christ’s ministration in the Most Holy in the anti-typical Day of Atonement. This is a correct understanding of the shut door and why it is that that door is shut, forever, never to be opened again. This is so because Christ’s ministration is illustrated by that term door, which he will never go back and do again.

Each one in the day of investigative Judgment will stand in character as he really is; he will render an individual account to God. Every word uttered, every departure from integrity, every action that sullies the soul, will be weighed in the balances of the sanctuary. Memory will be true and vivid in condemnation of the guilty one, who in that day is found wanting. The mind will recall all the thoughts and acts of the past; the whole life will come in review like the scenes in a panorama. Thus every one will be condemned or acquitted out of his own mouth, and the righteousness of God will be vindicated. {RH, November 4, 1884 par. 11}

In the above paragraph the same sentiment is expressed through implication. We are informed that the investigative judgment is somewheretime in the future, so don’t worry about it now. But this is the very problem with many important truths for these last days, they are NOT in future, they are current and will remain current to the close of probation.

The placing of these events, the investigative judgment, the shaking, the end of Matthew 24:14, the sealing time of the 144,000, the message to the Laodiceans, the saints being perfected now, and others, into some ethereal future time is really a cry of peace and safety for the present. And that present is the same whenever that message is preached.

A correct understanding of what it is to walk on the strait and narrow pathway, all the way to the City, will bring a correct understanding of the true position of all these events. Those obedient to the light will grow in their understanding of all these events and at last be prepared for the grave or translation.

God testified that O. R. L. Crosier wrote out the truth about the Law of Moses, also the title of his article, written out and published in The Day-Star, Extra, February 7, 1846, through Ellen in her letter of April 21, 1847 and published in A Word to the Little Flock.

Either God is a liar or men, who pick at what Crosier wrote, are liars. “God be true, but every man a liar” is where I shall stand.

Here is an excerpt which also appears in The Advent Review, No. 3, September 1850.

The atonement is the great idea of the Law, as well as the Gospel; and as the design of that of the Law was to teach us that of the Gospel, it is very important to be understood.

The atonement which the priest made for the people in connection with their daily ministration was different from that made on the tenth day of the seventh month. In making the former, they went no further than in the Holy; but to make the latter they entered the Holy of Holies — the former was made for individual cases, the latter for the whole nation of Israel collectively —

The former was made for the forgiveness of sins, the latter for blotting them out — the former could be made at any time, the latter only on the tenth day of the seventh month. Hence the former may be called the daily atonement and the latter the yearly, or the former the individual, and the latter the national atonement.

Building on what we wrote yesterday. The SDA church teach there is no sinless perfection for man before Christ’s second coming. Yet this is the lie of Satan, spouted out the instant truth is spoken, “Ye shall not surely die.”

The other lie of Satan they teach, by saying there is no sinless perfection in this life, is there is only the Holy place experience, not the Most Holy. Read again the text from Crosier. The Holy place ministration was for the forgiveness of sins, the Most Holy for blotting them out.

Satan has got the church teaching that our sins are not to be blotted out in this time, yet this is the very work that is carried on ever since October 22, 1844 and will only stop at the close of probation. This is a part of their not walking in the light of the Midnight Cry. They are trying to get to Heaven some other way than God’s appointed way. Christ’s righteousness only covers the sins that are blotted out, not un-confessed, un-forsaken sin.

All whose sins are not blotted out of the book will not be saved. All who are willing to believe whatever they are told, without checking or proving, will not be saved. No one will stumble into Heaven.

Another point this excerpt teaches is that the Holy place ministration was for individuals, the Most Holy was for God’s church corporately. This the church denies. The late Robert Wieland pushed for corporate repentance, but those in control would have no part of that. It would require too much for them to stomach, confession of sin. This alone is a major reason you must separate from the SDA church. You can not be a part of that sinful corporate body and a part of God’s true church. The SDA church would give glory to the man of sin while the true church would give glory to God , as a united corporate body; united by the truth.

Here are two witnesses to the truth.

The want of this necessary preparation will shut out the greatest portion of the young professors, for they will not labor earnestly and zealously enough to obtain that rest that remains for the people of God. They will not honestly confess their sins, that they may be pardoned and blotted out. These sins in a short time will be revealed in just their enormity. God’s eye does not slumber. He knows every sin that is hidden from mortal eye. The guilty know just what sins to confess, that their souls may be clean before God. p. 69, Para. 2, [4OT].

When Bro. C— once takes a position on the wrong side, it is not easy for him to confess he has erred. But if he can let his wrong course pass out of his mind and pass from the memory of others, and he can make some changes for the better without an open acknowledgment of his wrong, he will do so. But all these errors and unconfessed sins stand registered in Heaven, and will not be blotted out until be complies with the direction given in the Word of God: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.” If Bro. C— has found another plan than that given us by our Lord, it is not a safe way, and will prove his ruin at last. This other way is ruinous to the church–ruinous to the prosperity and happiness of his family. p. 146, Para. 1, [27OT].

From time to time questions come pointed and direct and must needs be answered. Here is one such.

It started with me asking a website owner a question about the statement in DA on page 568 which declares that “Christ is today standing at the altar of incense….” I asked him to explain it. It took him 24 days to reply and I left it that way.

However, recently the man has taken up the idea of book changes and teaching about them, wrongly and in deep error, as you will soon understand. And another sent me this question.

 

i don’t know who this is. [someone] sent it to me.
very good sermons on Jer 36 repeated

 

The following is my answer including my email exchange with the man.

 

Ok, I’ll tell you who he is.

Here is the conversation I had with the man not long ago.

Dear Art:

Revelation 8:3-5. John sees the golden alter of incense before the Throne.

Pastor [name withheld]

~~~~~~~end~~~~~~~~~~

I have no knowledge about his past, all I really know is this interaction I had with him. Notice first of all that he took 24 days to reply. He was studying my site.

Secondly, he is quoting the Bible text of Revelation 8:3-5 as if it is an answer. It is a non answer. DA says quite clearly “today” placing the event after October 22, 1844. Revelation 8:3-5 is a depiction of events prior to that date.

Christ has three roles; prophet, priest, and king. At his first advent he came as a prophet. Upon his return to Heaven he became our High Priest and began his ministry at the altar of incense.

On October 22, 1844 he followed his Father into the Most Holy. In there he began his ministry at the ark, having a censer, not the altar, with him.

The temple in Heaven is so huge that God showed his church through Ellen that he went into the Most Holy in a flaming chariot. Then our High Priest, Christ, followed him, also in a flaming chariot, into the Most Holy, there to begin the great anti-typical Day of Atonement ministration. {The Day-Star}

Christ will never return to the Holy place to re-start that ministration. God used the figure of a door to illustrate the ministration. When the ministration ended God said the door was closed. Like as probation for mankind in the future will be closed never to be re-opened, so the door or ministration of the Holy place will never be re-opened.

It is actually blasphemy to claim that Christ is in the Holy place today still carrying on that ministration. When [the man] applied that text to the statement of alledged fact in DA, he was in effect siding with the opposition to the truth; under any pretext this is inexcuseable, especially so in a man claiming to be a pastor.

Also, in making his answer to my question, he is by faith placing himself in the Holy place, not the Most Holy. And the last part of The Day-Star tells us just who God depicts to us as if he were there, but of course he is not, “trying to carry on the work of God,” breathing upon the deceived “light and much power, but no sweet love, joy and peace.”

 

And now you have my answer also. This is very serious business. Clearly the end in very, very close. Eternal life beckons. It is imperative that we have the truth. We can only make decisions based on what we know to be the truth. We are making decisions every single day, both small and great. It’s going to cost you time to get the truth, but it will be eternally worth it.

For some reason we are on a up-cycle of dealing with the counterfeit SOP. But it must needs be done as there are so few that are willing to acknowledge the truth in the matter, and those who do usually get swept of the strait and narrow path by the devices of Satan as there is no logical explanation for such contradictions coming from God. Which is the very crux of the matter.

God is not the author of the counterfeit SOP, man is the author of it.

God is the author of the authentic Spirit of Prophecy, not Ellen. She was just the mouthpiece God used, just like all the other prophets of the Bible.

Here is the lie.

 “We cannot hold that a position once taken, an idea once advocated, is not, under any circumstances, to be relinquished. There is but One Who is infallible — He Who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” (Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers, p. 105, par. 2).

This is the whisperings of Satan, the deceiver.

God has a whole list of positions that, once taken, should never, under any circumstances, be relinquished. Never.

The KJV Bible is God’s pure word. The seventh day of the week is the Sabbath. The dead have no part in anything any more, until they are resurrected. Human probation will end. Christ’s second coming to earth.  Just to name a few.

We are never to give these up. Ever.
