As early as 1851, in the book Christian Experience and Views, we were told that this was the time of Satan’s working with all power and signs and lying wonders.

God will work in power for his people; and Satan will be permitted to work also.
I saw that the mysterious signs and wonders, and false reformations would increase, and spread. The reformations that were shown me, were not reformations from error to truth. p.27, [CEV].

In looking over the history of the SDA church there have been many powerful leaders stand up and urge the people on to some greater height of spiritual attainment. All around us various independent ministries start up and go for a time, then fall down. Because these are not founded on the truth as God has given it, they are destined to fail.

There are many things to be wondered at today. New information is being discovered at such a pace that just reading about it all, as a full time job, one would very quickly fall behind. Some look at these developments as if they were things to be watched as if they were a part of the time of the end.

In the Bible and the authentic Spirit of Prophecy, which gives us the correct understanding of the Bible, we have all the pieces of the puzzle that God wants us to have, for now. We look forward to the very near future when all the gifts will be revived and God’s people will have visions that will again instruct, encourage, reprove, rebuke.

These are a necessary part of the experience of God’s people. But,… all future dreams and visions MUST be in complete harmony with what God has revealed to his people in the past. Any one, ANY person who stands up and claims to have a message from God and is using a counterfeit Bible or the counterfeit SOP you should immediately rebuke this spirit; it is the spirit of antichrist.

This work is of God, or it is not. God does nothing in partnership with Satan.
My work, for the past years, bears the stamp of God or the stamp of the enemy. There is no half-way work in the matter. The Testimonies are of the Spirit of God, or of the devil. You are, in arraying yourself against the servants of God, either doing a work for God, or for the devil. p. 129, Para. 1,[27OT].

This is big part of our anchor. God does not change. We can trust and count on him. So next time someone shows up with a big new deal, check your anchor. If you are anchored to the Rock, your anchor will tell you, if you are obedient and faithful.

God Bless your study
