Category: False Prophets or Teachers

Wednesday October 9, 2013

James White, as the husband-protector of Ellen AND the authentic Spirit of Prophecy, has said many things, which, if incorporated by teaching, would certainly do it’s part in safeguarding many a saint on the strait and narrow path to the City. Many are the pitfalls God, through James, has identified for the church, “yet they would not hear.”

In total opposition to what James wrote, Willie writes and puts Ellen’s name on it!

The prayer of Christ to His Father, contained in the seventeenth chapter of John, is to be our church creed. It shows us that our difference and disunion are dishonoring to God. Read the whole chapter, verse by verse.– Manuscript 12, 1899. 3SM 21.1

I’m sure Willie thought it was right, but wow! what a clutz! James has a lot different approach! as you will see here.

The object of the gifts, as stated by Paul, was “for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come in the unity of the faith.” But they have been superseded in the popular churches by human creeds, which have failed to secure scriptural unity. It has been truly said, “The American people are a nation of lords.” In a land of boasted freedom of thought and of conscience, like ours, church force cannot produce unity; but has caused divisions, and has given rise to religious sects and parties almost innumerable. Creed and church force have been called to the rescue in vain.

The remedy, however, for this deplorable evil is found in the proper use of the simple organization and church order set forth in the New-Testament Scriptures, and in the means Christ has ordained for the unity and perfection of the church. We affirm that there is not a single apology in all the book of God for disharmony of sentiment or spirit in the church. The means are ample to secure the high standard of unity expressed in the New Testament. Christ prayed that his people might be one, as he was one with his Father. John 17. And Paul appeals to the church at Corinth in these emphatic words: “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” 1Cor.1:10. “Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like-minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus, that ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Rom.15:5,6. The gifts were given to secure this state of unity.

But the popular churches have introduced another means of preserving unity, namely, human creeds. These creeds secure a sort of unity to each denomination; but they have all proved inefficient, as appears from the New Schools and Reformed of almost every creed-bound denomination under heaven. Hence the many kinds of Baptists, of Presbyterians, of Methodists, and of others. There is not an excuse for this state of things anywhere to be found in the book of God. These sects are not on the foundation of unity laid by Jesus Christ, and taught by Paul, the wise master-builder. And the smaller sects who reject human creeds, professing to take the Bible as their rule of faith and practice, yet rejecting the gifts, are not a whit better off. In these perilous times they shake to fragments, yet cry, The Bible! the Bible! We, too, would exalt the Bible, and would say to those who would represent us as taking the gifts instead of the Bible, that we are not satisfied with a part of the sacred volume, but claim as ours the Bible, the whole Bible, the gifts and all.

All the denominations cannot be right, and it may not be wrong to suppose that no one of them is right on all points of faith. To show that they cannot have their creeds and the gifts too, that creeds shut out the gifts, we will suppose that God, through chosen instruments taken from each sect, begins to show up the errors in the creeds of these different denominations. If they received the testimony as from Heaven, it would spoil their creeds. But would they throw them away and come out on the platform of unity taught by Christ, Paul, and Peter? Never! They would a thousand times sooner reject the humble instruments of God’s choice. It is evident that if the gifts were received, they would destroy human creeds; and that if creeds be received, they shut out the gifts. 1880 Life Sketches, pages 344-345

And since the SDA church has followed the world and created their own creed, aka, the 27 doctrines, they had to create some strong chords (1858 Great Controversy, page 147) using the counterfeit SOP.

When anyone is drawing apart from the organized body of God’s commandmentkeeping people, when he begins to weigh the church in his human scales and begins to pronounce judgment against them, then you may know that God is not leading him. He is on the wrong track. Review & Herald, November 8, 1956

Amazing what happens when once you practice to deceive….

And, just because we are not through with Selected Messages, book 3, we move into the subject of inspiration. As we examine today’s evidence there are certain things that must be understood. First we should remember Paul’s comments.

I speak not by commandment, 2 Corinthians 8:8
And herein I give my advice: 2 Corinthians 8:10

Many people understand this to mean that Paul was using his own words, his own thoughts; using other words, Paul was not inspired here, but, just giving his advise. But what does God say about this?

Every word of God is pure: Proverbs 30:5

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. Luke 4:4

This means that even though Paul thought he was using his own words, it really was God speaking through him, he just was not aware of it at that time. Ellen was no different.

Testimony Expressed in Her Own Words.-Although I am as dependent upon the Spirit of the Lord in writing my views as I am in receiving them, yet the words I employ in describing what I have seen are my own, unless they be those spoken to me by an angel, which I always enclose in remarks of quotation. [GENERAL CONFERENCE SESSION ACTION ON INSPIRATION: “WE BELIEVE THE LIGHT GIVEN BY GOD TO HIS SERVANTS IS BY THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THE MIND, THUS IMPARTING THE THOUGHTS, AND NOT (EXCEPT IN RARE CASES) THE VERY WORDS IN WHICH THE IDEAS SHOULD BE EXPRESSED.”–GENERAL CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS, REVIEW AND HERALD, NOV. 27, 1883.]–Review and Herald, Oct. 8, 1867. {3SM 49.7}

Then we have the most appropriate verse for understanding this.

For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:21

Now the church has an official paper titled, “Methods of Bible Study.” In that paper they too quote this text from 2 Peter, BUT, they only quote the last half of the text and then presume to define for you, just what they have decided you should think about the word moved. Their definition is in the all-caps words in the above paragraph from 3SM 49.7.

But here is what they are really saying and why it is that they do not quote the first part of 2 Peter 1:21. In claiming that Ellen is “thought inspired” and then uses her own words, is to claim that she used her own will, but this the Bible forbids. 2 Peter 1:21 tells us that God is the author of what a prophet says, not the will of man. Notice this next passage.

 

I am just as dependent upon the Spirit of the Lord in relating or writing the vision as in having the vision. It is impossible for me to call up things which have been shown me unless the Lord brings them before me at the time that He is pleased to have me relate or write them.–Spiritual Gifts, vol. 2, pp. 292, 293. {3SM 48.4}

Here is the clincher.

The scribes of God wrote as they were dictated by the Holy Spirit, having no control of the work themselves.  p. 5, Para. 4, [26OT].

And Ellen was no different. She was God’s prophet for the saints in the time of the end.

And, let’s add one more item about the Holy Spirit.

God works through human instrumentalities; and whoever shall awaken the consciences of men, provoking them to goodworks and a real interest in the advancement of the cause of truth, does not do it of himself, but by the Spirit of God which worketh in him. p. 124, Para. 2, [29OT].

And poor, lowly you, thought you were doing something all on your own. We are the created. God is our Creator. But, somehow, some way, we forget that, at the very time we should be remembering it. And we start not believing some of the plainest things he says. Faith says to believe God, yet we listen to the whisperings of Satan’s agents.

We fear to believe that the Spirit of God is in us, working out his will in our lives.

Right close to yesterday’s quote, this was found.

Not One Heretical Sentence.--I am now looking over my diaries [SEE FOOTNOTE, P. 32.] and copies of letters written for several years back. . . . I have the most precious matter to reproduce and place before the people in testimony form. While I am able to do this work, the people must have things to revive past history, that they may see that there is one straight chain of truth, without one heretical sentence, in that which I have written. This, I am instructed, is to be a living letter to all in regard to my faith.–Letter 329a, 1905. {3SM 52.2}

This ‘statement’ flies in the face of those who want to scream “CONTEXT!” at every lie published in the SOP-his-try (sophistry)  of Satan, the counterfeit SOP. The reason is because those sentences are heretical!

Let’s take the Desire of Ages,

page 568, ten lines up from the bottom of the page, the heretical sentence reads, “He [Christ] is to-day [sic.] standing at the altar of incense, presenting before God the prayers of those who desire His help.”

This sentence is heretical because it places Christ in the Holy place, not the Most Holy! This sentence can never stand on it’s own, it requires an army of explainers, creating a word-cloud of darkness to obscure, to make it even close to acceptable!

page 790, fourteen lines up from the bottom of the page, the heretical sentence reads,  “He [Christ] ascended to the heavenly courts, and from God Himself heard the assurance that His atonement for the sins of men had been ample, that through His blood all might gain eternal life.”

page 819, ten lines up from the bottom of the page, the heretical sentence reads, “The conditions of the atonement had been fulfilled; the work for which He [Christ] came to this world had been accomplished.”

These two heretical sentences prove that the writer of the book is making a claim that the atonement was completed on the cross. This false, blasphemous claim can easily be proven by asking some simple questions.

1.) If the atonement was made on Calvary, by whom was it made? The making of the atonement is the work of a Priest; but who officiated on Calvary? Roman soldiers and wicked Jews.

2.) The slaying of the victim was not making the atonement; the sinner slew the victim, Lev. 4: 1-4, 13-15, &c., after that the Priest took the blood and made the atonement. Lev. 4: 5-12, 16-21.

3.) Christ was the appointed High Priest to make the atonement, and he certainly could not have acted in that capacity till after his resurrection, and we have no record of his doing any thing on earth after his resurrection, which could be called the atonement.

4.) The atonement was made in the Sanctuary, but Calvary was not such a place.

5.) He could not, according to Heb. 8: 4, make the atonement while on earth. “If he were on earth, he should not be a Priest.” The Levitical was the earthly priesthood; the Divine, the heavenly.

6.) Therefore, He did not begin the work of making the atonement, whatever the nature of that work may be, till after His ascension, when by His own blood He entered His heavenly Sanctuary for us.

(These are the very questions and answers O.R.L.Crosier put in his article THE LAW OF MOSES, and was published in The Day-Star Extra, February 7, 1846. Which God endorsed through his prophet Ellen, in A Word to the Little Flock, page 12, and is proof positive that the SDA church is not walking in the light of the Midnight Cry.)

Then, to add blasphemous insult to blasphemous injury, not far away is this quote.

b. The Conflict of the Ages Books: Sister White is not the originator of these books. They contain the instruction that during her lifework God has been giving her. They contain the precious, comforting light that God has graciously given His servant to be given to the world.–Colporteur Ministry, p. 125. {3SM 50.4}

They are claiming that God is the author of these heretical sentences!

Better prove all things!

I am exasperated! There is a constant stream of vomit and filthiness that must be waded through to get the truth in researching the authentic Spirit of Prophecy vs the counterfeit SOP. I sometimes feel like I have jumped into a septic tank that must be bailed out by hand!!! Gross, YES!!! Sometimes necessary. Lord have mercy and give me strength to swim this filthy tide!

In picking up Questions on the Sealing Message, by J. N. Loughborough, published 1916, to check something else, my eyes fell upon these lines, page 18, which were highlighted.

If there is still a doubt of the resurrected Sabbath keepers’ being numbered with the 144,000, consider the following from Sister White’s words in 1909. At the General Conference in 1909, Elder Irwin had a stenographer accompany him in a call upon Sister White. He wished to ask her some questions, and have an exact copy of the words of the replies.
Among other questions was this one: “Will those who have died in the message be among the 144,000?” In reply, Sister White said: “Oh, yes, I those who have died in the faith will be among the 144,000. I am clear on that matter.” These were the exact words of question and answer, as Brother Irwin permitted me to copy from his stenographer’s report.

Previous to this I had not put much weight on this information, because we have The Day-Star and the 1858 Great Controversy, page 205, which, when combined, show clearly that all those who hear the voice of the Father giving the day and hour of Jesus coming and watch him come to this earth are, in fact, the 144,000, there are no others present.

After reading Loughborough’s comments today, I decided to see if Elder Irwin’s notes might be available on the White Estate CD. In checking this, I found the muck! and that is what I hate about doing this research. I feel dirty handling this junk! Here is what was found.

e. The Interviews: He [Elder G. A. Irwin] has with him a little notebook in which he has noted down perplexing questions which he brings before me, and if I have any light upon these points, I write it out for the benefit of our people, not only in America but in this country [Australia].–Letter 96, 1899. {3SM 51.1}
f. When There Was No Light: I have no light on the subject [as to just who would constitute the 144,000]. . . . Please tell my brethren that I have nothing presented before me regarding the circumstances concerning which they write, and I can set before them only that which has been presented to me.–Quoted in a letter by C. C. Crisler to E. E. Andross, Dec. 8, 1914. (In White Estate Document File, Number 164.) {3SM 51.2}

Let’s walk through this.

1.) Elder Irwin is getting written up in a letter dated 1899, for the exact same thing which Loughborough is describing in 1916, as having happened in 1909. So we can surmise that Irwin had a habit of doing this type of thing.

2.) Now all this is being written up in book 3 of Selected Messages. Lo, and behold! the very next item on that very page is a question about the 144,000, as to who they would be constituted of. And we have a letter (read proof here), dated December 8, 1914, of “Ellen’s” answer. “I have no light on the subject….”

3.) Just five years previous we have a highly credible report from a man who has made it a habit to ask Ellen, personally, difficult questions, and a highly credible report of the answer to one of those questions, from a man, who had only eight more years to live, but was a true pillar of the church, verified so.

But we have two “Ellens”!!!!!

God’s prophets do not speak with forked tongue!!!

This is another one of those cases where you MUST decide. You are forced to choose! You can not have it both ways!

Either Ellen was true and faithful to God, or she was not.

On this site we prove that Willie was Satan’s agent to re-write the entire authentic Spirit of Prophecy and that he took control immediately after James’ death, writing his views, his thoughts, his opinions, then putting Ellen’s name on the work as his authority it were, her work.

Sabbath October 5, 2013

It is a fearful deception to think that somehow, someway, because there are now and have been past, so many good Seventh-Day Adventists throughout the known world, there must be more than 144,000, of those exposed to this faith, who will be saved.

Currently, there are over 17 million SDAs in the world. If they were all truly converted the great controversy would have been over with long ago. Numbers will not do it. What the numbers really show is how this message has been dumbed down, changed, from what God gave to the world, to what unconverted man thinks it should be. Not counting Catholic influence.

Many claim that there are Jesuits in the church. That may be. The real point is that the members have not embraced the very thing that would keep sin and sinners out of the church— the living testimony, the voice of reproof and rebuke, the pointed testimony, it goes by a few names.

Everybody wants to look good, smell good, feel good, and have their feelings of importance stroked. This is not God’s appointed way. Here is his appointed way.

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: Revelation 3:19

I like the way Dale Carnegie states it in his famous book, How to Win Friends and Influence People. “There is only one way under high Heaven to get anybody to anything. Did you ever stop and think of that? Yes, just one way. And that is by making the other person want to do it. Remember, there is no other way.”

He goes on to quote William James, “‘The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.” He didn’t speak, mind you, of the ‘wish’ or the ‘desire’ or the ‘longing’ to be appreciated. He said the ‘craving’ to be appreciated.” Dale then goes on to educate people in the arts of the ways of the world. But these are not God’s ways.

It is because the church has adopted the ways of the world that it has so many members. It is stroking this “craving” to be appreciated, using social proof, “Well, there are so many, it must be right, if I am a part of it I can be right too.” Best you take a good hard look at the past. Only eight got in the ark, only one Abraham was chosen, only one Elijah stood against apostasy, only three were thrown in the fiery furnace, only, only, only! “And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of” them all! Only a few.

Time to review some evidence.

They [the Advent people] 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.

And now the second voice of evidence.

But there was one clear place of settled glory, from whence came the voice of God, like many waters, which shook the heavens and the earth. There was a mighty earthquake. The graves were shaken open, and those who had died in faith under the third angel’s message, keeping the Sabbath, came forth from their dusty beds, glorified, to hear the covenant of peace that God was to make with those who had kept his law. And as God spake the day and hour of Jesus’ coming, and delivered the everlasting covenant to his people,…. 1858 Great Controversy, p. 205.

From these two pieces of evidence all should be able to see that “the voice of God like many waters” calls from the grave a certain very well defined and explicitly stated group of people, for the explicit purpose of giving them “the day and hour of Jesus coming.” Then we go back to The Day-Star for a final piece of evidence.

The living saints, 144,000 in number, know and understand the voice….

Notice, that it is only after that resurrection by the voice of the Father that the saints are called “the living saints.” Of course they are living! they just got resurrected! Some of them, we know not how many, have physically gone through the time of trouble such as never was, the time of Jacob’s trouble.

We are rapidly closing in on the 169th anniversary of October 22, 1844 and because so few are walking in the light of the Midnight Cry, they reason within themselves, “There must be more than 144,000, there must be… it must be a figurative number, yes, that’s it! Those words must mean a figurative number!” And so the first lie of Satan spreads like wildfire! “Ye shall not surely die!” And this, in the face of very explicit words.

All this means that the 144,000 count started with the Sabbath message, which started with the third angel’s message, which started October 23, 1844 with the vision God gave to Hiram Edson, which proved that Christ, our high priest, went into the Most Holy place and the great antitypical Day of Atonement began. When that count is done, when the last saint is numbered and sealed, here is what happens next.

I saw angels hurrying to and fro in heaven. An angel returned from the earth with a writer’s inkhorn by his side, and reported to Jesus that his work was done, that the saints were numbered and sealed. THEN I saw Jesus, who had been ministering before the ark containing the ten commandments, throw down the censer. He raised his hands upward, and with a loud voice said, It is done. And all the angelic host laid off their crowns as Jesus made the solemn declaration, He that is unjust, let him be unjust still; and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still; and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still; and he that is holy, let him be holy still. p. 197, Para. 2, [1SG ].

There is only one numbered group of saints. The number is very explicit, “144,000 in number.” It’s taken, to date, 169 years so far, and the count is not over. This means that even fewer than 144,000 of those who have been exposed to the truth before today will be saved. All are responsible for the light they had access to. Many, many will die. You have the opportunity to become immortal. God so loved you that he gave his only Son, to die, to pay the price so that you could live, but it can only be in God’s appointed way.

Most people believe the lies of the SDA church about their convenient definition of the term inspiration. As taken from the book Ellen G. White Messenger to the Remnant, by Arthur L. White, we present the official church position.

Whereas, We believe the light given by God to His servants is by the enlightenment of the mind, thus imparting the thoughts, and not (except in rare cases) the very words in which the ideas should be expressed. Page 65, bottom right column.

Well, this is interesting…. maybe these guys should have spent some time in bible study?! Here is what God says.

For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:21

If you are choosing your own words, you are using your own will to make that choice. God specifically details exactly what is happening so that none need to err. Ellen did not speak or write using her own will. And, she was not the only one….

And he said unto them, Lodge here this night, and I will bring you word again, as the LORD shall speak unto me: and the princes of Moab abode with Balaam. Numbers 22:8
And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the word of the LORD my God, to do less or more. Numbers 22:18
And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do. Numbers 22:20
And the angel of the LORD said unto Balaam, Go with the men: but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak. Numbers 22:35
And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I now any power at all to say any thing? the word that God putteth in my mouth, that shall I speak. Numbers 22:38
And the LORD put a word in Balaam’s mouth, and said, Return unto Balak, and thus thou shalt speak. And he returned unto him, and, lo, he stood by his burnt sacrifice, he, and all the princes of Moab. And he took up his parable, and said, Balak the king of Moab hath brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east, saying, Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel. How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied? For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations. Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his! Numbers 23:5-10

And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that which the LORD hath put in my mouth? Numbers 23:12

And the LORD met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, Go again unto Balak, and say thus. And when he came to him, behold, he stood by his burnt offering, and the princes of Moab with him. And Balak said unto him, What hath the LORD spoken? And he took up his parable, and said, Rise up, Balak, and hear; hearken unto me, thou son of Zippor: God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it. He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them. God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn. Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought! Behold, the people shall rise up as a great lion, and lift up himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, and drink the blood of the slain. And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them at all, nor bless them at all. But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, Told not I thee, saying, All that the LORD speaketh, that I must do? Numbers 23:16-26
And when Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he went not, as at other times, to seek for enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness. And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the spirit of God came upon him. And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said: He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open: How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel! As the valleys are they spread forth, as gardens by the river’s side, as the trees of lign aloes which the LORD hath planted, and as cedar trees beside the waters. He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted. God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows. He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up? Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee. And Balak’s anger was kindled against Balaam, and he smote his hands together: and Balak said unto Balaam, I called thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast altogether blessed them these three times. Numbers 24:1-10

Balaam could only speak what God gave him to speak, and the wicked, even Balak, thought, even after three times!! that Balaam had control of himself! So here we have an evil Balaam, who is greedy for gain, who God will not allow to say anything but what God tells him to say….!! How many times do we have to have the truth repeated to us?

And a evil SDA church who is claiming that Ellen, God’s faithful messenger, God is leaving out on her own?! To be left at the mercy of her own personal education?!

Better check it out and make a decision, ‘cause things are happening all around us at an increased pace and when it comes down you don’t want to be left out. Study now while it’s easy, ‘cause hard is coming.

So God sends his people a prophet… name of Ellen, and it’s cool for awhile, but then it starts to get irritating. Here is what I think is happening.

God sends his people a prophet… name of Isaiah, and it’s cool for awhile, but then it starts to get irritating.

And he teaches that Moses was a righteous man. And that Moses was a prophet too, and that if God’s people had just followed Moses’ writings that he, Isaiah, would not have been needed.

So some of God’s people said, “Well then, we are just going to follow the teachings of Moses and we don’t need you!” So they put him in a hollow log and sawed it in two, by hand, which takes a long time, especially when the intestines get tangled up in the teeth of the saw and some of the bones are harder than the wood.

And Ellen teaches that Isaiah was a righteous man. And that Isaiah was a prophet too, and that if God’s people had just followed Isaiah’s writings that she, Ellen, would not have been needed. You can read about that in No. 20, pages 42-49.

So some of God’s people said, “Well, we are just going to follow the teachings of Isaiah and we don’t need you!” These are “the bible only” people. In essence, they are denying that the Spirit of Prophecy is from God. If Ellen were the author then anyone could ignore it without consequence. After all, she was not well educated, was no mental giant, and, most importantly, was not God.

I have a couple of books by Ralph Waldo Emerson containing most of his essays. I’m not sure; just checked, they have no date of publication. I would guess, probably about the 1940s for the publication of this set. In some circles Ralph’s works are much esteemed.

Just to draw the comparison, looking at the difference between Ralph’s essays and the SOP in the SDA church, I would have to say they are both esteemed about the same by all. That is to say, many may have heard the name, but, so what? Some like one and some the other, yet they are both treated about the same; human writings.

As with everything else, there are some who are the fans. I used to be a fan of Emerson. Studied his writings more than the Bible, certainly more than the SOP. However, it’s been years since I even looked at Emerson’s books. Everything, and especially everything dealing with such philosophy, is from the world, contains the world’s ideas, shapes the world’s thoughts, and generally prepares the mind to reject God and his plan. Think of it as being Greekie, 1 Corinthians 1:23.

Most people in the SDA church treat the SOP exactly that way. Mostly it’s because the world has got them. Secondly, it’s the counterfeit, so God is not drawing them like he does with the authentic. There is no charm for them for the truth, because the Holy Ghost is not instructing them through those works.

God does nothing in partnership with Satan. p. 129, Para. 1,[27OT].

For a few, they believe and read, but Satan has his own charm to comfort them with as they read the counterfeit. As a result they do not see such things as page 568 in the Desire of Ages, tenth line up from the bottom, where it is declared that Christ is in the holy place, not the most holy. They just can not see it.

But they sure don’t want the original writings! “Beats all I have ever seen” is the saying that comes to mind. And the question is, “Why would you not want all the Spirit of Prophecy you could get your hands on?” Oh well, you have to just shake your head and move on. Keep looking for the “poor, hungry, scattered sheep.” The Present Truth, No. 8, page 70. (or page 64, old edition)

From what I now know, Christ could come this year. Best you get ready. Get right with God. Make sure all your sins are confessed or they will not be blotted out of the book and you will be, finally, outside the City. Now is the time to prepare. We are not told when Christ is coming because of the human tendency to put-it-off. Get ready now! Delay is not okay!

Christ told the parable of a certain rich man, which just may be a figure of the Laodiceans, for it is them that think they are rich in spiritual discernment, No. 23, page 12. Oftentimes in this country they are physically rich also. Here is the story.

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. Luke 16:19-31

V e r y c a r e f u l l y… does the SDA church say, “Well, Ellen never claimed to be a prophet.” and “She called herself the Lord’s messenger.”

Yet, she was.

Any one who Christ talks to, and gives visions to, and commands to write out the same, and commands to teach his people— is a prophet.

In the parable Abraham tells this former rich man that “If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” Yet this has happened many times over in the last days since October 23, 1844, the day the third angel’s message started with Hiram Edson’s vision in the cornfield.

I myself am witness to the same. For I was dead in sin, but God in mercy plucked me as a brand from the burning, saving my very life and now I live, as it were “one rose from the dead” “yet they would not hear[!!!]” Why would they not hear my testimony? Because they profess to love Moses but they do not the works of Moses! They profess to have a messenger from God and love to puff out the chest in pride, but they hate that very message from that very prophet!

So, they would not hear me, they will not hear you; though you too have been raised from the dead unto life.

I saw that our message was not to the shepherds who have led the flock astray, but to the poor hungry, scattered sheep. The Present Truth, No. 8, page 70.

Ellen was a prophet. God is the real author of her writings. They are not a part of the Bible but they are to give us a correct understanding of the Bible.

Bro. B—- would confuse the mind by seeking to make it appear that the light God has given through the Testimonies is an addition to the Word of God. But in this he presents it in a false light. God has seen fit in this manner to bring the minds of his people to his Word, to give them a more clear understanding of it. p. 153, Para. 1, [27OT].

We are 169 years into the patient, waiting, watching time. Now, very soon, it will be over. Could Christ come this October? You know, things can move very, very fast.

I work at improving my writing so that it is not too obnoxious to read. The subject matter is generally of the greatest importance and the reader should not be too distracted by bad writing. Therefore I subscribe to DailyWritingTips.com, a well recommended resource.

One day I am reading the emailed tips and the following sentence was quoted for an example.

2. “‘The deepest bias in the history of the American people,’ is how historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. referred to our nation’s history of anti-Catholic prejudice.”

The name was not familiar to me, so I looked it up. Wikipedia had this to say.

Arthur Meier Schlesinger, Jr. was an American historian, social critic, and public intellectual.

In worldly circles the man was highly thought of,… apparently. But who decides this? Is it not those who write history? Yes, it is even so. Great heros of war are only so because their side won. Turn the tables and they become war criminals. I say this to point out the language of the sentence, the message it proffers.

It is calling an anti-Catholic bias a prejudice. Another resource, Dictionary.com, had this to say about the word prejudice.

An unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason.

Historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. is clearly writing with an agenda. He is writing to mis-inform people who would care to read his books. It is the willing ignorant who take something at face value or on the assertion of a supposed expert and do nothing to prove it.

Paul lauded the noble Bereans, in Acts 17:11, for proving all things.

This is where many fall down with respect to bibles. They are willing to take the assertions of a lauded expert and go no further in the examination of the evidence. We must needs ask the question, who is doing the lauding? Why are they doing it? Today there are over 5,200 documents available on the Bible. Of these, 99.992 percent support the KJV and only 44 documents do not. Yet it is these 44 documents that all the modern bibles are based on, and few are checking, testing, proving.

What is it we often say? “Follow the money.” We also talk about the “re-writing of history.” The Catholic church in general, and the Jesuits in particular, have long ago launched a major campaign to erase from the collective memory certain things that should never be forgotten, especially those relating to the Catholics.

‘The deepest bias in the history of the American people’ was not prejudice, it was founded on well proven and known facts about the Catholics that today have literally been educated away from the masses. Great numbers of peoples of all lands were here in this country to escape the religious persecution from the Catholics and the lands of the newly independent America were awash in anti-Catholic books, which largely have since disappeared as fast as the Catholics could make them so.

Recently on this site we exposed the lying of Arthur White about an anti-Catholic vision God gave to his church. Arthur White claimed that there was no such vision. Click on the link and see the vision for yourself. Better yet, go here and download the three files. The subject vision is in the first part of file No. 3, at the top of the page.

What was Arthur White doing? Why was he lying about the existence of the vision? In the mid-fifties the Martin-Barnhouse meetings were held with the church, which was made public by M. L. Andreasen in his “Letters to the Churches.” In those meetings the church was pressured to surrender to the peer pressure of the evangelical churches, which were already under Satan’s control. Arthur White’s lying about the vision appears to be a part of the entrenchment of a very pro-Catholic stance the church leadership was taking.

Many talk about Jesuits and Catholics in the church. It is doubtful that this is false. It would appear from the facts of acts that all the church leadership is compromised, away from the true God and toward the man of sin the pope. Why else would this church go and bow at the feet of the man of sin? honoring him with a gold medallion.

Make no mistake about it, the Catholic church is your enemy, not your friend. Arthur White’s lying appears to be part of an on-going denial for the purpose of placating the Catholics and their agenda of takeover of the world.

Here is the pertinent part of the vision.

I saw that the nominal churches and nominal Adventists, like Judas, would betray us to the Catholics, to obtain their influence to come against the saints. The saints will be an obscure people, but little known to the Catholics,

This is certainly the case for those who separate from the apostate SDA church in this day. This is an argument for the vision being true and prophetic of the then distant future.

but the church and nominal Adventists will know of our faith and customs, and will betray the saints and report them to the Catholics, as those who disregard the institution of the pope, that is they keep the Sabbath and disregard Sunday.

Then the Catholics bid the Protestants to go forward and issue a decree that all who will not observe the first day of the week instead of the seventh shall be slain, and the Catholics, whose numbers are large, will stand by the Protestants. The Catholics will give their power to the image of the beast and then Protestants will work as their mother worked before them to destroy the saints. But before their decrees bring forth or bear fruit, the saints will be delivered by the voice of God.

Sabbath August 31, 2013

Words, words, words, these are the stuff of life. A man is rich if he has an abundance of words. Now comes the task of separating, deciding, sorting. Words arraigned paint a picture. If that picture be evil, that arraignment must be discarded. Those same words, arraigned differently, make a picture of good. That arraignment must be guarded, preserved, shielded from evil.

God presents his words to man. This is illustrated in the parable of the sower, found in Matthew 13:1-9; Mark 4:1-9; Luke 8:4-8. Then something happens, an enemy comes in and steals the good words and replaces them with smooth words, words of the world, words of man. See Matthew 13:24-30. These words cause death. These are the same words Eve listened to and suddenly she thought that the fruit on that tree was good for food!

Those evil words attracted her lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and her pride of life, she surrendered and went to find another to drag down also. Sad. The following texts show that God reads the hearts of men and knows in advance. Matthew 13:10-17; Mark 4:10-12; Luke 8:9-10; John 12:35-43

Here is the explanation of the parable of the sower. Matthew 13:18-23; Mark 4:13-20; Luke 8:11-15;

Here is much more. The parable of the sower is just a parable, at first, but then it is so much more! You take a look, you examine these texts for that seed, sown in the mind of the hearer, you prove the words of life. Remember Psalms 119:105, what is light? John 1:1-14; 3:19-21; 4:41; 5:8, 11, 24, 35, 38, 47; 6:27-65; 8:12-47; 9:5; 10:4, 16, 26-27; 11:40; 12:44-50; 14:1-25; 15:3, 7, 10, 20, 22; 16:8-15, 25, 33; 17:3, 6, 14-20; 20:31; 1John 1:1-7; 2:5, 7-11, 14.
