Category: Unity with Pioneers

Sunday July 21, 2013

Every wind of doctrine, that’s what’s blowing these days!

I am looking at two articles, one on the trinity debate and another on the character of God debate. Most all such are written with a great emphases on “context,” which we covered just a few days ago, and “critical thinking,” also recently covered. Each one presents his case as the only way it should be understood. Why? Because the pioneers of this faith were wrong.

Now they don’t say it strongly as I did, but much more subtle, like Satan alluring with smooth words. Don’t you believe them! Prove it for yourself! Right here it is.

I was shown like this. The truth once got out now, will stand; for it is the truth for the last days, and it will live, and less need to be said upon the truth after it is out. Numberless words need not be put upon paper to justify what speaks for itself, and shines in its clearness. But it is not so with error. It is so winding and twisting that it needs a multitude of words to explain it in its crooked form. But truth is straight, plain, clear, and stands out boldly in its own defense. The cause of truth should not be hindered in its onward progress for want of means. p. 14, Para. 2, [SUPCEV].

This is what I see. People rise up at the promptings of Satan and think they have to bring great definition to something like God’s character. They do this “as if” man is going to be able to comprehend God! This is pure foolishness! It is a strong appeal to the pride of man. Here is the proof of that.

Satan would convey the idea that by eating of the forbidden tree, they would receive a new and more noble kind of knowledge than they had hitherto attained. This has been his special work with great success ever since his fall, to lead men to pry into the secrets of the Almighty, and not to be satisfied with what God has revealed, and not careful to obey that which he has commanded. He would lead them to disobey God’s commands, and then make them believe that they are entering a wonderful field of knowledge. This is purely supposition, and a miserable deception. They fail to understand what God has revealed, and disregard his explicit commandments, and aspire after wisdom, independent of God, and seek to understand that which he has been pleased to withhold from mortals. They are elated with their ideas of progression, and charmed with their own vain philosophy; but grope in midnight darkness relative to true knowledge. They are ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. p. 36, Para. 2, [1SP ].

So here is what we have, in the first passage above it was God that showed to his church, not Ellen, and it is God who is the author of the authentic Spirit of Prophecy, and it is God’s instruction that these people are setting aside as a thing of naught!

Thus they are not satisfied with what God has revealed! and are seeking to pry into the secrets of God! that which he has been pleased to withhold from mortals! There is more.

I was shown fields of labor. Towns, cities, and villages, everywhere, should hear the message of warning; for all will be tested and proved upon the message of present truth. p. 171, Para. 2, [22OT].

What is this “present truth” that all will be tested and proved upon? Why, it has to be the same exact present truth as in the first passage from above. This is so because we know that God is without a shadow of turning, he does not change! Plus, the message in the body of the authentic Spirit of Prophecy is in perfect harmony with all it’s parts and the Bible.

Why is it that everything changes at 1881? It’s real simple, James died and Willie took over and began the creation of the counterfeit SOP.

Many are tempted in regard to our work, and are calling it in question. … Some have sanctimonious, apparently conscientious and very pious, doubts, which they will cautiously drop, which has tenfold more power to strengthen those who are wrong and to lesson our influence and weaken the confidence of God’s people in our work, than if they came out more frankly. These poor souls, I saw, were deceived by Satan. They flatter themselves that they are all right, and in favor with God, rich in spiritual discernment, when they are blind, poor, and wretched. They are doing the work of Satan, and thinking they have a zeal for God. p. 11, Para. 5, [23OT].

Some will not receive the testimony God has given us to bear, flattering themselves we may be deceived, and they are right. p. 12, Para. 1, [23OT].

This is exactly the picture of these people who are traveling without a message from God. These things that God has not revealed are not to be probed by man.

Any time any one stands up and starts talking about how the pioneers did not understand something and or had something wrong, that should be a major red flag to you! Make sure you have your armor fully on!

Danger is at every hand, we are on enchanted ground…..

While we are on this topic, on the side that is, about what Willie was up to; according to rough, preliminary math, taking the number of pages the White Estate claims Ellen wrote, divided by the number of weeks she “worked,” minus the Sabbath days, dear Ellen would have been responsible for about nine pages per day, every day.

Which means that every day she skipped, the next day she would have had eighteen pages to write. Again, this is just rough math here.

Then we find this in the counterfeit SOP.

“About a year after the death of my husband, I was very feeble, and it was feared that I might live but a short time.

But all this time day by day she must have been writing,… nine pages per day.

At the Healdsburg camp meeting, I was taken into the tent where there was a large gathering of our people. I asked to be raised up from the lounged on which I was lying, and assisted to the speaker’s platform, that I might say a few words of farewell to the people. As I tried to speak, the power of God came upon me, and thrilled me through and through. Many in the congregation observed that I was weak, and that my face and hands seemed bloodless; but as I began speaking they saw the color coming into my lips and face, and knew that a miracle was being wrought in my behalf. I stood before the people healed, and spoke with freedom.

Now she is healed and all is well.

“After this experience, light was given me that the Lord had raised me up to bear testimony for Him in many countries, and that He would give me grace and strength for the work. It was also shown me that my son, W. C. White, should be my helper and counselor, and that the Lord would place on him the spirit of wisdom and of a sound mind. I was shown that the Lord would guide him, and that he would not be led away, because he would recognize the leadings and guidance of the Holy Spirit.” (1SM, p. 54)

Assuming that the first paragraph is correct, from what we know of Willie, how convenient that this paragraph appears. Not only that, but how convenient that Willie is now “once saved always saved” in the eyes of… God???

We better back up here and take another look at what is being said here. As far as I am concerned Willie is the one who wrote the whole thing. I don’t even know if Ellen actually attended that meeting or not, one year after James’ death. That aside, Willie has just created for himself a job, the controller of the Spirit of Prophecy.

Some will disagree and that is ok, but let’s go on here. According to this alleged writing of Ellen’s Willie is getting “the spirit of wisdom and of a sound mind” in addition “the Lord would guide him, and that he would not be led away.” This really is amazing. This is saying that Willie would not go into error, or we could say that he is infallible?!

Now the “contexters” would have fun with this one. Especially after what we have been through the last few days. But again, it says what it says and very clearly it says that Willie would not sin?, would not make a mistake?,led away means something???

And it goes on… “because he would recognize the leadings and guidance of the Holy Spirit.” To me all this means that at the very least Willie’s judgment could be trusted… because God is guiding him,… the Holy Spirit is guiding him and leading him.

Let’s test it.

In 1872 God had this counsel for the saints, found in No. 21, page 22-23.

And, above all, we should not with our pens advocate positions that we do not put to a practical test in our own families, upon our own tables. This is dissimulation, and a species of hypocrisy. In Michigan we can do better in leaving salt, sugar, and milk, than many who are situated in the far West, or in the far East, where there is a scarcity of fruit. There are but very few families in Battle Creek who do not use these articles upon their tables. We know that a free use of these articles is positively injurious to health, and, in many cases, we think if they were not used at all, a much better state of health would be enjoyed. At present, our burden is not upon these things. The people are so far behind that we see it is all they can bear to have us draw the line upon their injurious indulgences and stimulating narcotics. We bear positive testimony against tobacco, spirituous liquors, snuff, tea, coffee, flesh-meats, butter, spices, rich cakes, mince pies, a large amount of salt, and all exciting substances used as articles of food. p. 22, Para. 2, [21OT].

Now go back to this post on the blog and read toward the bottom of it how Ellen Willie changed their minds about what God showed to them in No. 21, page 23, quoted above. Now, it must be, that God has changed his mind, apparently, and is telling his people that  “sterilized butter was a better fat for many people than any of the vegetable oils.” This is Willie’s words as reported by the White Estate.

 

This begs the question, what happened? According to Willie, God didn’t give very good light to Ellen and she had to then go to man for the “clearest and best light.”

Perhaps now you will understand why we claim that Willie and his team are responsible for the counterfeit SOP. And there you will find the source for those nine pages per day of written material.

Around here we take the clear position that God is the author of the authentic Spirit of Prophecy and that every word of it can be trusted just as the Bible can be trusted. The authentic Spirit of Prophecy is not an addition to the Bible but that “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].

Stand on the proven truth alone.

Another something came across my desk the other day.

(I once asked my mom why it was that she used the phrase “the other day” when it was weeks ago that something happened. She told me, “Son, it’s just a phrase, it doesn’t mean a specific time or day.” Then I understood. It’s called education.)

This time it comes from D. S. Farris. He wrote something titled PROPHETIC TOOL CHEST. I know nothing of the man and it is entirely possible that he is using a pen name. Nevertheless, I have my suspicions about the true purpose of his presence.

The reason for my suspicions is because of some of his comments in this work. In the last chapter, twelve, page 8, second paragraph, he makes the case for the sixth trumpet ending in 1844.

This is wholly wrong. We have plenty of evidence written by the true pioneers of exactly when the sixth trumpet ended. August 11, 1840. So this man has got himself a private interpretation of prophecy.

In the same chapter, page 24, the bottom paragraph, we find him now with the whole rest of Adventism, claiming that perfection is not available to man. Here are his exact words.

The issue is not whether or not we become perfect; the issue is our attitude about sin.

This is also wholly wrong. It is the lie of Satan. This is a part of the strong delusion that sweeps millions into the fires of hell. The reliance on the counterfeit SOP will kill your chance of Heaven. It is full of the lies of Satan. It teaches people the arts of vacillation and talking with forked tongue, commonly known as “out of both sides of the mouth.”

This lifetime is mans second chance. This lifetime is my opportunity to perfect a character fit to be blessed with eternal life. If I fail in this before my death, I will not be given eternal life. Perfection of character is paramount! It can only be accomplished in the strength of God. I must abide in the vine, drawing life from that vine just as a graft grows. Yet I must also resist the devil even to the point of death, just as the three Hebrews did before the furnace.

These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. Genesis 6:9

Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 18:13

Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day. 1 Kings 8:61

But the high places were not removed: nevertheless Asa’s heart was perfect with the LORD all his days. 1 Kings 15:14

Then the people rejoiced, for that they offered willingly, because with perfect heart they offered willingly to the LORD: and David the king also rejoiced with great joy. 1 Chronicles 29:9

There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. Job 1:1

Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 1 Corinthians 10:11

Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. Matthew 19:21

We are admonished to be perfect—because it is where we must be to be saved. Now after all that, let’s not forget the righteousness of Christ, correctly stated here.

Another one. This one from the Review and Herald, October 31, 1899.

When it comes to believing and what to believe, all must do their own homework, all must prove all things. When I or anyone tells you that something is truth, it is your responsibility before God to prove that truth.

We must be careful what we believe. I have found far too many wide differences between what I was taught as a church member and what I have discovered by reading the early publications of the Advent people. This is another one of such.

The bride is the church who is waiting for the second appearing of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. R&H, 10/31/1899, para 7.

I was always taught this was the true understanding. But the pioneers had the truth and it is, to my knowledge, first written out in The Advent Review, November 1850, No. 5, beginning on the third page from the last. This particular portion is not signed and we have not found a definitive copy alluding to the author. Nevertheless, we assume it must have been authored by one of the publishing committee members. An excerpt follows.

All have been indoctrinated into the idea that the church is the Bride. … It is one of those fruits of spiritualizing the sacred Oracles, which have so fatally corrupted the streams of truth. … [over to the next page] and consequently the beautiful relation existing between the three, Christ being the Husband, the City the Wife, the saints the children.

You can click on this link here to read the whole article yourself and prove it. But we once again have the counterfeit SOP at odds with the faith of the Advent people. And it always happens after the death of James. It’s because someone else was at the helm….

Another item has come to my attention. It too is found in a Review and Herald article.

The dispensation in which we are now living is to be, to those that ask, the dispensation of the Holy Spirit. R&H, March 2, 1897

Speaking in direct opposition to Crosiers article in The Day-Star Extra, Satan is here attempting to nudge people off the path. Here is an excerpt from his article.

What is the mystery to be finished? “The mystery of the gospel,” Eph. 6 : 19. “The mystery which was kept secret since the world began, but is now made manifest.” The riches of the glory of this mystery is Christ in you, the hope of glory, Col. 1:27. “The mystery of Christ, which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the spirit; that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel” Eph. 2:4-6. It is the dispensation of the grace of God; ver. 2. These texts show that the mystery of God or Christ is the Gos. Dis. It is the period of hope and heirship. While we hope we pray for the object of hope, and that is glory — as exhibited on the Holy Mount, immortality, the Kingdom and society of Jesus. Until these are obtained we hope; and while we hope the mystery is not finished.- Again, we are heirs during the mystery of God, and when that is finished, we shall become inheritors. We must therefore conclude that the mystery of God will end with the mysterious change from mortal to immortality; 1 Cor. 15: 51-54. Then, as the Dispensation of the fullness of times begins with the 7th trumpet, and the Gos. Dis. reaches to the resurrection, it is manifest that the Dis. of the fullness of times, begins before the Gos. Dis, ends.- There is a short period of overlapping or running together of the two Dispensations, in which the peculiarities of both mingle like the twilight, minglings of light and darkness. p. 44, Para. 1, [LAW].

Before jumping to the conclusion that grace means the same thing as Holy Spirit, please understand something. Mankind is always getting into trouble by saying things in a different way than the Bible or Spirit of Prophecy states them. Here we limit ourselves to the same words we are given by God.

Crosier only lists two dispensations. The short period of overlap he mentions is now 168 years in length. Not much when compared to the six thousand years of the great controversy between Christ and Satan.

In the second part of The Day-Star is a very interesting writing of Satan’s work of deception. We have visited this passage often in the past and today there is an important point of light that has come which we will look at.

We have just done some posts on the subject of perfection. In particular note this post, for Friday June 7th, for a quick review. This man, SDA Pastor Gifford Rhamie is teaching “in the Hebrew concept of perfection, there is no understanding of flawlessness, or sinlessness” “however we understand the word perfect today we have injected this notion of flawlessness and sinlessness.”

This man is simply parroting what he learned in seminary, which was from counterfeited Greek and Hebrew documents, which is wrong. Thus the importance of the KJV Bible.

This concept of perfection is critical to understand, especially with regard to our duty since October 22, 1844. That date began the great anti-typical Day of Atonement. Let’s review The Day-Star.

I saw a throne, and on it sat the Father and his Son Jesus Christ. I gazed on Jesus’ countenance and admired his lovely person. The Fathers person I could not behold for a cloud of glorious light covered him. I asked Jesus if his Father had a form like himself; He said he had, but I could not behold it; for, said he, if you should for once see the glory of his person, you would cease to exist.
Before the throne was the Advent people, the Church, and the world. [Notice there are three groups, not two] I saw a company bowed down before the throne, deeply interested while most of them stood up disinterested and careless. Those who were bowed before the throne would offer up their prayers and look to Jesus, then he would look to his Father and appeared to be pleading with him.
Then a light came from the Father to his Son and from him to the praying company. Then I saw an exceeding bright light come from the Father to the Son and from the Son it waved over the people before the throne. But few would receive this great light. Many came out from under it and immediately resisted it. Others were careless and did not cherish the light and it moved off from them. Some cherished it and went and bowed down before the throne with the little praying company. This company all received the light, and rejoiced in it as their countenances shone with its glory.

This light appears to be the first and second angel’s messages. It’s a bit condensed in this vision.

Then I saw the Father rise from the throne and in a flaming chariot go into the Holy of Holies within the vail, and did sit.

This means that the Father was in the Holy place with Christ. On October 22, 1844 the Father went into the Most Holy before Christ did.

There I saw thrones which I had not seen before. Then Jesus rose up from the throne, and most of those who were bowed down rose up with him. And I did not see one ray of light pass from Jesus to the careless multitude after he rose up, and they were left in perfect darkness.

This is true of all the Protestant churches. They have absolutely no understanding of the Sanctuary message at all. They have no knowledge of where Christ is now.

Those who rose up when Jesus did [the Advent people], kept their eyes fixed on him as he left the throne, and led them out a little way, then he raised his right arm and we heard his lovely voice saying, wait ye, I am going to my Father to receive the Kingdom. Keep your garments spotless and in a little while I will return from the wedding, and receive you to myself.
And I saw a cloudy chariot with wheels like flaming fire. Angels were all about the chariot as it came where Jesus was; he stepped into it and was borne to the Holiest where the Father sat. Then I beheld Jesus as he was before the Father a great High Priest. On the hem of his garment was a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate. Then Jesus shewed me the difference between faith and feeling.

Now that we have the proper background, we move on to the critical point of this study.

And I saw those who rose up with Jesus send up their faith to Jesus in the Holiest, and praying, Father give us thy spirit. Then Jesus would breathe on them the Holy Ghost. In the breath was light, power and much love, joy and peace.
Then I turned to look at the company who were still bowed before the throne [in the Holy place]. They did not know that Jesus had left it. Satan appeared to be by the throne trying to carry on the work of God. I saw them look up to the throne and pray, My Father give us thy spirit. Then Satan would breathe on them an unholy influence. In it there was light and much power, but no sweet love, joy and peace. Satan’s object was to keep them deceived and to draw back and deceive God’s children.

This work of God, that Satan is trying to carry on, is the forgiveness of sins. We have talked about this before in an oblique manner by discussing the role of psychiatrists and psychologists as functional high priests of Satan’s, who labor to assuage guilt and provide a counterfeit peace through counseling, or, that failing, chemicals; affectionately called “meds” by many.

I saw one after another leave the company who were praying to Jesus in the Holiest, go and join those before the throne and they at once received the unholy influence of Satan.

This vision that God gave to the church was for it’s warning to the very end. It was not just for the 1800’s. Here we see that Satan is successful at deceiving many of the Advent people. This is one of the reasons why the Sanctuary message is not taught in church today.

More tomorrow.

Unity in truth is very important for God’s people. There truly is only one way into Heaven. There truly is only one strait and narrow path to the City with the light of the Midnight Cry lighting the way for the faithful saints.

But things happen. God’s people are tested. Satan is allowed to tempt. The following is from that same Review & Herald of May 6, 1862, we look at, in part, yesterday.

 

A blighting influence is upon the cause of present truth in Northern Wisconsin. If all had felt that attachment for the Review which God designed they should, they would have been benefited and instructed by the truths it advocates. They would have had a correct faith, a settled position upon the truths applicable for this time, and would have been guarded and saved from this fanaticism. The sensibilities of many are blunted; false excitement has destroyed their discernment and spiritual eyesight. It is of the highest importance now for them to move understandingly, that Satan’s design may not be fully carried out and his object accomplished in overthrowing those whom he has had power to deceive.

When those who have witnessed and experienced false exercises, are convinced of their mistake, then Satan takes advantage of their error, and holds it constantly before them, to make them afraid of any spiritual exercises, and in this way he seeks to destroy their faith in true godliness. A fear rests upon the mind, of making any effort by earnest, fervent prayer to God for special aid and victory, because they were once deceived. Such must not let Satan gain his object, and drive them to cold formality and unbelief. They must remember that the foundation of God standeth sure. Let God be true, and every man a liar. Their only safety is to plant their feet upon the platform of truth, to see and understand the third angel’s message, prize, love, and obey the truth.

God is leading out a people, and bringing them into the unity of the faith, that they may be one, as he is one with the Father. Various views and differences of opinion must be yielded, that all may come in union with the body, that they may have one mind and one judgment.

1 Cor. i, 10: 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.

Rom. xv, 5, 6: Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded 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.

Phil. ii, 2: Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

By coming into harmony with the KJV Bible and the authentic Spirit of Prophecy we all will naturally be in harmony with each other.

In The Advent Review, EXTRA, published September 1850, written by Hiram Edson, there is some amazing things to be understood. Starting on page 175-176 we are treated to some points I never heard before. I’ll put some excerpts below to show the high points and I highly recommend it for reading.

 

Ahab did evil above all that were before him. This is an example of the wickedness of the end of the world, which is above all that has ever been before it. Jezebel, the wife of Ahab, is a figure or example of the Catholic Church, see Rev. ii, 20.

Jezebel slew all the prophets of the Lord except Elijah. So Jezebel, the Catholic Church, has slain her millions of Christians.

 

This is an interesting point. Hiram had to have known about Obadiah hiding one hundred of the prophets. That makes his statement not exactly accurate, but we can let him slide on that one. I noticed that he says “except Elijah.” If Elijah is a representative of the 144,000, which he is, then this looks like none of the 144,000 will be subjected to

 

Balaam was a magician, and used enchantments, and was sought unto by kings, to bless them, and to curse their enemies. See Num. xxii, 6, 7. He seems to be a figure or example of the pope, who has acted the part of Balaam in blessing and cursing.

 

Speaking in answer to some critics,…

 

But we will answer them in the language of Elijah to Ahab. We have not troubled Israel: but thou and they father’s house, in that ye have FORSAKEN THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD, AND THOU HAST FOLLOWED BALAAM,’ (the Pope.) The commandments of God, then was the message of Elijah when he came out of the wilderness.

 

I am officially impressed! Since 2006 (+/–) I have been studying this truth and am continually amazed at the new revelations of what is truth, applicable to today. The more it opens the more I realize how little I know or understand of God’s wisdom.

What more will we understand before we see his face?

Ever wonder about the 666? I certainly have. Here is the text that has that number listed as the number of the beast and a man.

 

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:18

 

Jerry showed me the answer. It’s found in what we call the ‘42 Miller book. The full title is Evidence from Scripture and History of the Second Coming of Christ, about the year 1843; exhibited in a Course of Lectures. It was written by William Miller in 1842, hence our abbreviated name for it.

In the book, pages 81-85, William goes into great detail as to the exact use of the number 666 and covers the why that this works. Here is a concluding passage from that book.

 

Then, if this be correct, that Pagan Rome began his power in the year B. C. 158, and was to continue 666 years, when would Paganism fall in the Roman kingdom, and the “daily sacrifice abomination” be taken out of the way to make room for the abomination of desolation? I answer, Take 158 from 666 and you will have 508. Then in the year A. D. 508 Paganism ceased.

 

Both the number B. C. 158 and A. D. 508 are on the 1843 chart. William is working with factual information. Here is the correct use of Revelation 13:18, the 666.

Charles Fitch helped to give the first angel’s message, the second and the Midnight Cry and died just before October 22, 1844. He was one “whom God had laid in the grave to save.” The Day-Star.

Jerry showed me that Charles wrote a book and one chapter out of that book is titled, Come Out of Her My People. This was also printed up as a pamphlet. The following is an excerpt.

 

This is God’s word: and all the spiritualizers on the footstool cannot alter it. They may undertake to tell what God means by it, God has given His own meaning in His own language, and He will make it good by fulfilling it as He has caused it to be written. If God had meant something else and not this, He would have told us what He did mean. Just as though when God had given us truth in symbolic language, and then interpreted it, that it might be fully understood, He had after all left it for men, in their upstart folly to improve His own revelation. My soul is pained when I reflect how the word of God has been rendered powerless upon the consciences and hearts of men by the attempts which have been made to alter it into something else.

 

Charles is here defining the work of the many translators. These do not understand the spiritual meaning of the spiritual words and calling it “ridiculous” (see Isaiah 33:19, the margin) they are attempting to make it more plain, and in the attempt are actually removing the truth.

It is amazing how the Advent Pioneers were so well versed in the spiritual understanding of the Bible, God having taught them through William Miller. We seek continually to follow in his footsteps on the strait and narrow path.
