God’s Lines in the Sand -- Unpardonable Sin Abominations

“Mark this point with care: Those who receive the pure mark of truth, wrought in them by the power of the Holy Ghost, represented by a mark by the man in linen, are those "that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done" in the church.” {Mar 240.1}

One of the most serious issues for any people is one that is most neglected among God’s people. That issue is unpardonable sin. But this is no mystery considering the fact that Ellen White said that the leaders of God’s people will never again show the House of Jacob its sins. If they won’t show the people their sins, why would they attempt to show them unpardonable sin? God’s faithful servants in the Bible always pointed out the sins of Israel and some of them were decidedly unpardonable. So it behoves us to study such sins so we will not commit them ourselves. Notice:         

Begin at My Sanctuary -- "Here we see that the church--the Lord's sanctuary--was the first to feel the stroke of the wrath of God. The ancient men, those to whom God had given great light and who had stood as guardians of the spiritual interests of the people, had betrayed their trust. They had taken the position that we need not look for miracles and the marked manifestation of God's power as in former days. Times have changed. These words strengthen their unbelief, and they say: The Lord will not do good, neither will He do evil. He is too merciful to visit His people in judgment. Thus 'Peace and safety" is the cry from men who will never again lift up their voice like a trumpet to show God's people their transgressions and the house of Jacob their sins. These dumb dogs that would not bark are the ones who feel the just vengeance of an offended God. Men, maidens, and little children all perish together." E. G. White, Testimonies, Vol. 5, 211.

Some seem oblivious to the abominations for which we are to sigh and cry, so I have prepared this document to help them in their inexcusable plight. The abominations I cite herein are not mere faults and defects such as we all have, but rather gross apostasy abominations for which Ezekiel 9 punishment will be experienced by professing SDA men, maidens and little children.

 

The men who are to stand as guardians of the spiritual interests of God’s people are the leaders. But if the Spirit of Prophecy is true, and it certainly is, the leaders will never again lift up their voice like a trumpet to show God’s people their sins. Why is this? The answer is found within the same statement:

 

1.    The leaders have betrayed their trust. We can no longer trust them.

2.    They have taken the position that we need not look for miracles and the marked manifestation of God's power as in former days.

3.    They say: “Times have changed.” These words strengthen their unbelief, and they say: The Lord will not do good, neither will He do evil.”

4.    They don’t believe God will enforce His teachings on unpardonable sin or even sin that is not unpardonable.

5.    They are of unbelief in God’s Word.

6.    These dumb dogs that would not bark are the ones who feel the just vengeance of an offended God. Men, maidens, and little children all perish together.

 

The above statement by Ellen White begins on page 207, quoting Ezekiel 9, and the words: “Men, maidens, and little children all perish together,” relate to Ezekiel 9:6.

 6Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house. Ezekiel 9:6.

Ezekiel 9 involves unpardonable sin because men, maidens and even little children perish because of such sins. The slaughter begins with the ancient men (the leaders), for these primary reasons:

 

7.    They betrayed their sacred trust.

8.    They imbibed unbelief.

9.    They imbibed peace and safety.

10.    They would not show God`s people their sins.

11.    The leaders have been the ring leaders of the unpardonable sins amongst God`s people.

12.    They misled God`s people by all of the above.

 

If SDA leaders will never again show the House of Jacob, God’s people, their sins, let alone the more serious unpardonable sins, don’t you think it is reasonable that God should send someone to show them their sins and what constitutes something as serious as unpardonable sin. Is that not what He did with apostate Israel? Was that the appointed duty of all His prophets in the Bible?

The last time I attended campmeeting in Alberta, in the mid 1980’s, there was a full-fledged football game going on right outside the main auditorium on Sabbath afternoon. The game was led by a theology student. And not one leader said a bleeping word! Is that lightly regarding of the Sabbath? Is that breaking God’s Holy law?

In the latter 1970’s, SDA leaders instructed Russian parents to send their children to school on Sabbath, as they hold classes six days a week in Russia. Is that lightly regarding the Sabbath and God’s Holy Law? Little Waldensian children died right before their parents for holding to the truth. Is there a lesser standard for SDA children?

Remember that God says that SDA leaders think “The Lord will not do good, neither will He do evil. He is too merciful to visit His people in judgment.” (5T 211). Do you think that way? Will you be amongst those who are slaughtered because you think that way? Is it unpardonable sin to think that way?

As you read the following statement, think of the Pentecostal and Vatican II derived Celebration Movement that SDA’s went to Babylon to learn:

Pattern after other churches: "A new order of things has COME INTO the ministry. There is a desire to pattern after other churches and simplicity and humility are almost unknown. The young ministers seek to be original, and to introduce new ideas and new plans for labor. Some open revival meetings, and by this means call large numbers into the church. But when the excitement is over, where are the converted ones? Repentance and confession of sin are not seen. The sinner is entreated to believe in Christ and accept Him, without regard to his past life of sin and rebellion. The heart is not broken. There is no contrition of soul. The supposed converted ones have not fallen upon the Rock, Christ Jesus." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Bk. 2, pp. 18, 19.

 

Indeed, it is the very leaders of the church who have instigated the smuggling in of apostasies. This is fact is borne out by the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy.

 

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

 

I think of Rome’s central doctrine, the Trinity Doctrine, smuggled into the SDA church by Leroy Froom in 1930, just 15 years after Ellen White’s death. Then it was voted into adoption at the 1980 General Conference Session.

 

For those who don’t believe Ellen White, please believe God Himself:

 

 16For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed. Isaiah 9:16.

 10His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

 11Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

 12Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant. Isaiah 56:10-12.

Lest you are even tempted to think that these verses applied only to the apostate Jews, be reminded that Ellen White said that SDA’s are walking exactly in the footsteps of the Jews. Then remember that she said Ezekiel 9 will be literally repeated, “beginning at His Sanctuary, the House of Jacob, “spiritual Jerusalem,” God’s “chosen” people.

"There is manifested on the part of men in responsible positions an unwillingness to confess where they have been in the wrong and their neglect is working disaster, not only to themselves, but to the churches....You will be left to make mistakes of a similar character, you will continue to lack wisdom, and will can sin righteousness and righteousness sin. The multitude of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will change leaders, and not know that you have done so." E.G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 2, 448.

Who does this passage indict for the apostasy it cites:

"In the fear and love of God I tell those before whom I stand today that there is increased light for us, and that great blessings come with the reception of this light. And when I see my brethren stirred with anger against God's messages and messengers, I think of similar scenes in the life of Christ and the Reformers. The reception given to God's servants in past ages is the same as the reception that those today receive through whom God is sending precious rays of light. The leaders of the people today pursue the same course of action that the Jews pursued. They criticize and ply question after question, and refuse to admit evidence, treating the light sent them in the very same way that the Jews treated the light Christ brought them." E.G. White, The 1888 Materials, Vol. 2, p. 911.

"The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-day Adventists, and that this reformation would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. Were this reformation to take place, what would result? The principles of truth that God in His wisdom has given to the remnant church, would be discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last fifty years would be accounted as error. A NEW ORGANIZATION would be established. Books of a new order would be written. A system of intellectual philosophy would be introduced. The founders of this system would go into the cities, and do a wonderful work. The Sabbath of course, would be lightly regarded, as also the God who created it. Nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the NEW MOVEMENT. The leaders would teach that virtue is better than vice, but God being removed, they would place their dependence on human power, which, without God, is worthless. Their foundation would be built on the sand, and storm and tempest would sweep away the structure.

WHO HAS AUTHORITY TO BEGIN SUCH A [NEW] MOVEMENT? We have our Bibles. We have our experience, attested to by the miraculous working of the Holy Spirit. We have a truth that admits of no compromise. Shall we not repudiate everything that is not in harmony with this truth?" E.G. White, Selected Messages, Vol. 1, 204-205.

Would you think it unpardonable sin to imbibe that above apostasy after knowing the truth? When God is removed, who is the only other master? 

"The Sanhedrin had rejected Christ's message and was bent upon His death therefore Jesus departed from Jerusalem, from the priests, the temple, the religious leaders, the people who had been instructed in the law, and turned to another class to proclaim His message, and to gather out those who should carry the gospel to all nations.

As the light and life of men was rejected by the ecclesiastical authorities in the days of Christ, so it has been rejected in every succeeding generation. Again and again the history of Christ's withdrawal from Judea has been repeated. When the Reformers preached the word of God, they had no thought of separating themselves from the established church but the religious leaders would not tolerate the light, and those that bore it were forced to seek another class, who were longing for the truth. In our day few of the professed followers of the Reformers are actuated by their spirit. Few are listening for the voice of God, and ready to accept truth in whatever guise it may be presented. Often those who follow in the steps of the Reformers are forced to turn away from the churches they love, in order to declare the plain teaching of the word of God. And many times those who are seeking for light are by the same teaching obliged to leave the church of their fathers, that they may render obedience." E.G. White, Desire of Ages, 232.

 

 "The recreant priests added licentiousness to the dark catalogue of their crimes yet they still polluted by their presence the tabernacle of the Lord, and, laden with sin, dared to come into the presence of a holy God. As the men of Israel witnessed the corrupt course of the priests, they thought it safer for their families not to come up to the appointed place of worship. Many went from Shiloh with their peace disturbed, their indignation aroused, until they at last determined to offer their sacrifices themselves, concluding that this would be fully as acceptable to God, as to sanction in any manner the abominations practiced in the Sanctuary." E.G. White, The Signs of the Times, vol. 1, p. 264, col. 3, December 1, 1881.

 

"Jesus sends  HIS PEOPLE a message of warning to prepare them for his coming. To the prophet John was made known the closing work in the great plan of man's redemption. He beheld an angel flying 'in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him for the hour of his Judgment is come and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters [Rev. 14:6, 7.]. [The Three Angel’s messages as commissioned to Adventists].

The angel represented in prophecy as delivering this message,  symbolizes a class of faithful men, who, obedient to the promptings of God's Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message was not to be committed to the religious leaders of the people. They had failed to preserve their connection with God, and had REFUSED THE LIGHT FROM HEAVEN therefore they WERE NOT of the number described by the apostle Paul: 'But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day we are not of the night nor of darkness' [1 Thess. 5:4, 5]. 

The watchmen upon the walls of Zion should be the first to catch the tidings of the Saviour's advent, the first to lift their voices to proclaim him near, the first to warn the people to prepare for his coming. But they were at ease, dreaming of peace and safety, while the people were asleep in their sins. Jesus saw HIS CHURCH, like the barren fig-tree, covered with pretentious leaves, yet destitute of precious fruit. There was a boastful observance of the forms of religion, while the spirit of true humility, penitence and faith--which alone could render the service acceptable to God--was lacking. Instead of the graces of the Spirit, there were manifested pride, formalism, vainglory, selfishness, oppression. A BACKSLIDING CHURCH closed their eyes to the signs of the times. God did nor forsake them, or suffer his faithfulness to fail but they departed from him, and SEPARATED THEMSELVES from his love. As they REFUSED TO COMPLY WITH THE CONDITIONS, his promises were NOT FULFILLED to them."  E.G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy,  vol. 4, pp. 199-200 [The 1884 edition of The Great Controversy, NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH TESTIMONIES, VOL 4].

 

Sheeple Follow Their Leaders

 

“Everything in the world is in agitation. The signs of the times are ominous. Coming events cast their shadows before. The Spirit of God is withdrawing from the earth, and calamity follows calamity by sea and by land. There are tempests, earthquakes, fires, floods, murders of every grade. Who can read the future? Where is security? There is assurance in nothing that is human or earthly. Rapidly are men ranging themselves under the banner they have chosen. Restlessly are they waiting and watching the movements of their leaders. There are those who are waiting and watching and working for our Lord's appearing. Another class are falling into line under the generalship of the first great apostate. Few believe with heart and soul that we have a hell to shun and a heaven to win.” {DA 636.1}

 

God’s Lines in the Sand – How His People Have Committed Unpardonable Sin

 

Two SDA Pastors with their Doctorate in Divinity, the late Dr. Ralph Larson and Dr. John Grosboll, state in their co-authored article entitled None Dare Call it Apostasy, that the church has committed upardonable sin. Their findings agree with God’s Word and the Spirit of Prophecy. From this point on we will study the more serious ways and means by which the SDA church has indeed committed unpardonable sin as a corporate body, but not individually.

 

But I hasten to add that all who learn of this apostasy are corporately responsible for it as soon as they hear of it if they choose to remain in liaison to the harlot world church:

 

1Cr 6:16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

 

Nothing could teach and portray corporate responsibility any more simply and clearer than the above verse from the New Testament!

 

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

 

We are saved individually by coming out of apostasy just as the faithful Christian Jews were saved as an example for us. They separated from the apostate church and were sealed in True Jerusalem, as opposed to apostate Jerusalem. They did not begin another church. They merely preserved the one that was always intended by Christ.

 

The notion that if anyone separates from an apostate church that he/she is establishing another 8th, 9th, 10th, etc., church in addition to the seven churches of Revelation 2 and 3 is one of the most absurd concepts ever inspired by Satan. Think of all the true reformers in every succeeding generation who left the church of their fathers because the ecclesiastical leaders would not tolerate light, Desire of Ages, 232. If each of them constituted a church in addition to the seven churches of Revelation 2 and 3, we would have a very highly extended number of churches! But that is not the case whatsoever. When God’s people separate for reasons of not imbibing apostasy and being corporately responsible for it, they merely maintain the true church no matter where they are in the world, to wit:

 

"God has a church. It is not the great cathedral, (or the super mega church), neither is it the national establishment, neither is it the various denominations; it is the people who love God and keep His commandments. 'Where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.' Where Christ is even among the humble few, THIS IS CHRIST'S CHURCH, for the presence of the High and Holy One who inhabiteth eternity can alone constitute a church." Upward Look, p. 315.

 

"The headquarters of our church, affect the whole body of believers. If the physical heart is healthy, the blood that is sent from it through the system is also healthy; but if this fountain is impure, the whole organism becomes diseased by the poison of the vital fluid. So it is with us. If the heart of the work becomes corrupt, the whole church, in its various branches and interests, scattered abroad over the face of the earth, suffers in consequence." Testimonies, vol. 4, p. 210. 

 

God’s Word teaches corporate responsibility in many ways. I will give merely one example from the Old and New Testament, but if you watch for the principle in your studies, you will see many evidences of it in the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy.

 

The Old Testament teaches corporate responsibility in the case of Achan and his family in Joshua chapters 6 and 7. The new Testament held the apostate Jews responsible for all the blood spilled from righteous Abel and on down the centuries.

 

31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? 34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” Matthew 23:31-39.

 

"Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation from the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered." Luke 11:49-52.

 

The key of knowledge is faith that works by love to obey God.

 

It is of grave importance to see the principle of corporate responsibility for apostasy and the fact that we need not ever have separated from any apostate church if corporate responsibility did not accrue.

 

The Unpardonable Sin Apostasies Every Member of New Movement Adventism is Responsible for if he/she Remains a Member After Learning of Such Abominations

 

When one considers Ellen White’s admonition that the least unrepented of sin can keep us from heaven, it becomes clear that the gravity of the following abominations makes them unpardonable. I will list them briefly and then elaborate. What follows are the CONDITIONS which God’s people refuse, so that His promises will not be fulfilled to them. That, my friend, constitutes unpardonable sin any which way you might try to rationalize it.

 

13.  Ecumenical liaison with Babylon after learning the truth of the Midnight Cry and the three angel’s messages which called us out of Babylon.

14.  The antichrist teaching on the Godhead.

15.  The antichrist teaching on the human nature of Christ.

16.  Remaining in the Laodicean (foolish virgin state of the church) for over a century.

17.  Transcending the Laodicean lukewarm state on the part of the leaders to commit gross, cold apostate, abominable apostasy.

18.  Marrying the church to the world by accepting its Accreditation Standards.

19.  Going to Babylon to learn how to grow churches via the Celebration movement. (Like Saul consulting the witch of Endor).

20.  Corporate responsibility for worshipping Allah as God [Dwight K. Nelson to Andrews University SDA Church.

21.  Rejection of corporate responsibility by the church leadership when confronted with a thick manuscript submitted by Donald K. Short and Robert J. Wieland in 1950, that provided more than enough proof of the principle of corporate responsibility. This was/is tantamount to rejecting the story of Achan and other examples of corporate responsibility in Scripture.

22.  Teaching a false, antichrist gospel, the doctrine of the Nicolaitans which God especially hates as an admixture option to the one true gospel—eg. Fordism in the church.

23.  Marrying the church to the world by accepting its Accreditation    Standards.

24.  Becoming a sister to fallen Babylon by licentious practices.

25.  Rebellion against the teaching of the gift of the Holy Spirit to the church. (This is as the sin of witchcraft).

26.  Refusing to tolerate light.

27.  Holding joint ecumenical Easter sunrise services with Babylon.

28.  Instructing Russian parents to send their children to school on Sabbath, thus breaking all ten commandments

29.  Refusing any of the conditions for salvation. 4SOP, 199, 200.

30.  Sitting in the gate deciding what the people will have and not have.

31.  Choosing ANYTHING over fidelity to God, to wit: Father, mother sister, brother, spouse, materialism, or anything that distracts from a relationship with God.

32.  Refusing to EVER AGAIN show the House of Jacob its sins. Teaching that God won’t do good or evil and presuming upon the mercy of God by saying He is too merciful to visit His people in judgment.

33.  Manifest unbelief of the leaders and laity alike because the laity elects and supports the ring-leaders of apostasy.

34.  Paying annual dues to Babylon’s associations, counsels/councils and confederacies/conspiracies eg. Ministerial Associations, National Councils of Churches and the World Council of Churches.

35.  Sitting as leaders on the highest positions of Babylon’s associations and councils.

36.  Doing after the manner of the world at the time when the danger to the church is greatest. 5T 210.

37.  Bringing every uncouth thing into our campmeetings just before the close of probation.

38.  Failure to warn God’s people concerning the seriousness of the times and being ignorant of how bad things really are.

39.  Making an idol of education in order to obtain the material goods of the world.

40.  Lying to church members about the church’s ecumenical involvement in the World Council of Churches and its subsidiary organizations such as its national councils and local Ministerial Associations.

41.  Playing a COUNTERPART to Israel’s apostasy after having their example to learn from.

42.  Failure to apply the Scriptures to now as Ellen White instructs. This makes them ever so much more interesting and would better hold the interest of our youth. For example, Ezekiel 22:17-31 applies to the end-time as well because of the literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9. Ezekiel 22 is just an extension of Ezekiel 9.

43.  Teaching that Ezekiel 9 applies only to Babylon and not an apostate SDA “Jerusalem.”

44.  Sacrificing our children and youth on the altar of mammon by misleading them into paths of destruction.

45.  Eating our own bread (commandments and teachings of men) and wearing our own apparel as opposed to the righteousness of Christ, Isaiah 4:1-4.

46.  Failure to teach that another remnant goes forth out of JERUSALEM, as well as Babylon.

47.  Teaching the SDA Bible Commentary heinous lie concerning Ezekiel 9, that the Nebuchadnezzar captivities fulfilled Ezekiel 9, as opposed to the A.D. 70 destruction of Jerusalem, which occurred after the probation of Israel was ended in A.D. 34. No Ezekiel 9 sealing could have occurred before the 490 years of Daniel’s prophecy concerning Israel’s probation ended in A.D. 34 commensurate with the stoning of Stephen.

48.  Teaching the heinous lie that one must remain in an apostate Jerusalem in order to be sealed. No true Christian was sealed at the apostate Jewish Temple. Christ’s presence departed at His death on the cross when the veil to the Temple was rent.

49.  Teaching SDA’s to pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the new movement SDA “church” when Ezekiel 22:23, 24, say there will be no cleansing of the church and there will not be any rain (outpouring on the apostate SDA church) in the day of indignation which is to come, cf. Revelation 14:10-12, for a description of the day of indignation: 23And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 24Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation.

50.  Forked tongued deception in the book Answers to Questions on Doctrine, wherein it says the Atonement was completed on the Cross and that God did not enter the heavenly Sanctuary to do anything, when Ellen White said that Christ’s ministry in the Sanctuary is just as essential as His death on the cross.

51.  Teaching that there will be no blameless final generation as taught by Revelation 14:1-4, Revelation 3:10-12, and Ellen White, which is generally referred to as Last Generation and/or Final Generation Theology.

52.  The antichrist teaching that we cannot overcome as Christ did because He was part God, when He not once used His divinity to overcome sin. We don’t have to take all the sins of the world upon us as He did.

53.  Teaching that the true reformers are the wolves when God’s Word expressly says the wolves are the leaders, Ezekiel 22.

54.  Teaching that Laodicea is the final church; the Noble Ship that is the church triumphant.

55.  Teaching the abominable lie that the tares are shaken out of apostate “spiritual Jerusalem,” rather than into it for slaughter, burning and destruction. Ezekiel 22:17-31.

56.  The teaching that the church is the bride of Christ, when it is only a select group, the Philadelphians who are made pillars in the Temple in heaven, and Ellen White said that only the 144,000 enter that Temple, Early Writings, p. 19, and Rev. 3:10-12.

57.  Teaching the lie that the entire church is the 144,000 and that this number is only symbolic of the entire church that is saved.

58.  Teaching that once one knows the Adventist message, he/she must remain in the new movement apostate church to be saved when Ellen White said we are saved as individuals, not as a church.

59.  Teaching that nothing is to be TORN DOWN.

60.  Teaching in concert with Rome that we should unify no matter what the church does.

61.  The teaching that open sin apostates are the same as tares; that the wheat can mature amongst thorns—open sinners.

62.  Failure to reform or remove open sinners from the church as Christ instructed.

63.  Teaching that the bad are shaken out of the apostate new movement to leave it the purged and purified church triumphant. That is a lie. The church triumphant has existed in every generation as true reformer faithful men.

64.  Failure to teach the distinction between Zion, the bride and the guests, Isaiah 62 and The Great Controversy, pp. 426, 427.

65.  Failure to teach the distinction between the ten virgins and the voice of the bride that awakens the ten virgins, Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 405, 406.

66.  Failure to recognize that in paying annual dues to Babylon’s councils, associations and confederacies, the church supports pantheism because the World Council of Churches, of which all National Councils of Churches are a part, takes into membership non-Christian Eastern religions that teach pantheism.

67.  Failure to comprehend that in paying annual

68.  Failure to understand that adoption of the Trinity Doctrine sweeps away the entire Christian economy by its denial that the third person to the Godhead resulted at the Incarnation when the Son divested His Divine Nature Holy Spirit from His humanity and gave it to us as the “highest good, crowning gift heaven could bestow.”

69.  Failure to understand that the embracement of the Trinity Doctrine voids the heavenly Sanctuary/Atonement which met the prescribed limit as a sacrifice even before the cross and that without that sacrifice, the SANCTUARY IS GONE, THE ATONEMENT IS GONE.

70.  Instructing God’s people to keep Sunday sacred at the end-time.

71.  Instructing the youth of our colleges to attend Catholic Mass (PUC students at Napa, Calif.) and bowing to Allah in an Islamic Mosque.

72.  Entering business partnership with Babylon as regards the health work which was to be the right arm of the gospel.

73.  Failure of our hospitals and sanitarium's to maintain the health message and employ it. This went by the wayside when we began to join Babylon in the health care work.

74.  Having a divorce rate in the same percentage as the world, thus still practicing the lascivious things which Ellen White said would constitute us as a sister to fallen Babylon.

75.  Becoming so much like the world that no difference can be seen.

76.  Being worse than pagan, idol worshippers, per Ellen White.

77.  Breaking God’s statutes more than any other people, Ezekiel chapter 5.

78.  Failure to recognize that Ezekiel 5:9 makes Ezekiel applicable to the church because the worst thing God every does is at the end-time, cf. Matthew 24:21.

79.  Standard after standard trailing in the dust in our churches, schools, colleges and universities.

80.  Dressing and adornment just like the world. Isaiah chapters 2-4 prophesied this and that our young men will die in the war that is to come. All Bible Commentarians agree that Isaiah chapters 1-4 are end-time in context.

81.  Possessive of a haughty, proud, rich and increased with goods attitude and failure to recognize that Ellen White said that the Laodicean state of the church is the foolish virgin state—then saying that Laodicea goes through as the final, 7th church! That is like saying the foolish virgins are saved. That is blasphemy and state of the art peace and safety teaching!

82.  Defending ecumenical association as a witnessing tool, when God says NO, and strictly forbids any linking of ourselves that would identify us with Babylon. And that, when not one single person has ever been converted to the church via ecumenical associations with Babylon. But the first SDA representative sent to Babylon from Andrews University, Elder Earle Hilgert, converted to being a Presbyterian minister. That shows who gets who when we go on Satan’s ground in a forbidden manner. To defend joining Babylon’s associations by “using” Ellen White’s counsel to come close to other ministers, evidently does not work, except to Satan’s advantage! There are other ways like contacting them as the disciples did—two by two! That is God’s instruction.

83.  Building expensive churches when Ellen White said they should be simple and inexpensive.

84.  Sacrificing our children to Baal, in efforts to keep up with the Jones’ via materialistic values. This is idol worship and human sacrifice—just another variation on the theme!

85.  Ellen White says in Word to the Little Flock, p. 14, that if one strays from the Midnight Cry lighted pathway, after hearing that message that gave power to the first and second angel’s messages, it is IMPOSSIBLE to get back on the pathway to heaven. This is saying that ecumenical excursion into Babylon after knowing the truth about coming out of her, is unpardonable sin.

86.  Failure to recognize and teach that when Ellen White used the word “prefigure” in The Great Controversy, p. 25, as applied to apostate Jerusalem of the A.D. 70 era, compared to her statement that Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled again, her words demand another coming out because that is exactly what occurred from A.D. 27-70.

87.  Failure to recognize that Jesus and His followers separated from the prevailing apostasy of their day.

88.  Failure to recognize that Ellen White reapplies Matthew 22:1-10, to our day and specifically quotes verse 7. That verse is the same event as Ezekiel 9, A.D. 70. So Matthew 22 is a proto-type of an antitype to come BEGINNING AT HIS “JERUSALEM” SANCTUARY.

89.  Failure to locate our hospital and educational facilities away from the cities.

90.  The sending of an issue of Ministry magazine to over 450,000 Babylonian pastors, and/or educational institutions (schools and libraries) as a testament to what SDA’s believe, when that 1957 issue said flat out that Jesus had Adam’s nature BEFORE the fall, thus implying that we cannot overcome sin as He did. That sin has never been addressed and repented of.

91.  SDA new movement leaders have bragged that they have the highest representation at Rick Warren’s sessions which teach how to avoid doctrine and focus on the social justice agenda of the World Council of Churches. This is another way the church is participating in the goals and objectives of the World’s Council of Satan’s Synagogue of “Churches.”

92.  Over 300 pastors have participated in Neuro Linguistic Programing (NLP), which trains pastors how to better control and manipulate their patron sheeple so the leaders will get less flack from the flock!

93.  The church totally ignored Ellen White’s counsel against speculation and it recently lost millions in sacred tithe monies on the Stock Market.

94.  SDA new movement lawsuits against members in Trademarked Name contentions. Ellen White says that any who do this prove that they have not the Holy Spirit.

95.  Fraud and corruption involving Robert S. Folkenberg, former General Conference President. (Scroll down for links)

96.  Former GC President Neal C. Wilson testifies before Federal Court that pioneer SDA pejoritive teachings about the Catholics has been consigned to the traditional trash heap! There went the three angel’s messages and the call out of Babylon! I paid $28 for the court record so I know he said it!

97.  Former GC President Robert S. Folkenberg called my warning message garbage at an Alberta, Canada campmeeting. That is a serious response in light of the fact that my message is based on the last literal A.D. 34-70 type-antitype fulfillment of Ezekiel 9. I say A.D. 34-70 because the last literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 began with the calls of Matthew 22:1-10, which Ellen White reapplies to our day, Sermon’s and Talks, Vol. 1, pp. 4-9, and the fact that Israel’s 490 years of probation to end sin (Daniel 9), ended in A.D. 34. There could have been no Ezekiel 9 sealing prior to that probation closing date for apostate Israel. Thus, the church has rejected serious light involving unpardonable sin.

98.   Inviting high placed Catholic leaders to speak at SDA General Conference World Sessions, which are supposed to be the Word of God to the church.

99.  Inviting like Catholic leaders to speak to the students of our colleges and universities.

100.  SDA education leaders encouraging students at Pacific Union College to attend Catholic Mass at the local St. Helena Catholic church. Little Waldensian children gave their lives for refusing to say that the Eucharist wafer was the actual transubstantiated body of Jesus Christ, but was rather a symbol of His body. Yet SDA grown adult students have willingly taken part in that service by the Catholic church. That is pure blasphemy. This is bowing the knee to Baal.

101.  Consulting Baal’s servants (Rick Warren and Bill Hybels) on how to grow mega churches—thus implementing Babylon’s focus on entertainment rather than serious pillar, saving doctrines. Rick Warren is a former Baptist preacher and he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relation, the prime objective of which is to promote Satan’s one world government, one world bank, one world religion and one world day of worship. Rick Warren admits that he personally canvassed the surrounding area of his church in an effort to determine what the people wanted by way of teaching, music and general entertainment, rather than consulting God’s Word which says to teach sound doctrine. 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 2 Timothy 4:2-4 (in Context) 2 Timothy 4 (Whole Chapter). Again, consulting Babylon for the cause of God Almighty, is like Saul going to the witch of Endor for advice and Ellen White said that act was unpardonable sin that sealed his fate.

102.  Having concord with the works of darkness after knowing the truth, is strictly forbidden by the Word of God. "I have been shown that the spirit of the world is fast leavening the church. You are following the same path as did ancient Israel. There is the same falling away from your holy calling as God's peculiar people. You are having fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Your concord with unbelievers have provoked he Lord's displeasure. You know not the things that belong to your peace, and they are fast being hid from your eyes. [The very words applied to fallen Israel on page 17 of The Great Controversy] Your neglect to follow the light will place you in a more unfavorable position than the Jews upon whom Christ pronounced a woe." Testimonies, Vol. 5, pp. 75-76. Nehemiah would not even come down to speak with the likes of such persons. Ellen White says that we should do the same. Fear and Shun "'They that forsake the law praise the wicked.' Proverbs 28:4. When those who are uniting with the world, yet claiming great purity, plead for union with those who have ever been the opposers of the cause of truth, we should fear and shun them as decidedly as did Nehemiah. Such counsel is prompted by the enemy of all good. It is the speech of timeservers, and should be resisted as resolutely today as then. Whatever influence would tend to unsettle the faith of God' people in His guiding power, should be steadfastly withstood." E.G. White, Prophets and Kings, p. 660.

103.  The need of another coming out: “I was confirmed in all I had stated in Minneapolis, that a reformation must go through the churches. Reforms must be made, for spiritual weakness and blindness were upon the people who had been blessed with great light and precious opportunities and privileges. As reformers they had come out of the denominational churches, but they now act a part similar to that which the churches acted. We hoped that there would not be the necessity for another coming out. While we will endeavor to keep the "unity of the Spirit" in the bonds of peace, we will not with pen or voice cease to protest against bigotry.”--EGW '88 356, 357 (1889). {LDE 48.1} What would Ellen White say today regarding the desire to act a part exactly like that which the fallen churches act? SDA leaders tell the abominable lie that this statement by Ellen White is the ONLY TIME she expressed a loss of confidence in the church! If you believe that total fabrication, you are either spiritually blind and/or not very well informed. Here are other statements that express a very serious loss of confidence in the church. And remember, Mrs. White said that after her death great changes would be made. See this link: http://omega77.tripod.com/leavestate.htm

104.  The “dumb-dog” watchmen must really think you are dumb because immediately after saying that the “another coming out” statement was the only ONE statement by Ellen White that expressed a loss of confidence in the church [in the compiled book Last Day Events), they state this quote: “Of those who boast of their light and yet fail to walk in it Christ says, "But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment than for you. And thou, Capernaum [Seventh-day Adventists, who have had great light], which art exalted unto heaven [in point of privilege], shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works which have been done in thee had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day." Ellen G. White, Review and Herald Articles, Aug. 1, 1893. [THE BRACKETED COMMENTS ARE BY ELLEN WHITE.] {LDE 48.2} Does that show a lack of confidence in the church?! Only those as bigoted as the dumb-dog SDA leaders could make such a self-contradictory statement!

105.  The antichrist SDA doctrinal book Answers to Questions on Doctrine, was published in 1957, in response to a plying of questions by Evangelicals the late Dr. Walter Martin and Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse. They contested the saying in the SDA book Bible Readings for the Home Circle, that Christ took our sinful nature. That is what Ellen White says as well, to wit: "In Him was no guile or sinfulness; He was ever pure and undefiled; yet He took upon Him our sinful nature." -Review and Herald, Dec. 15, 1896. The SDA leaders who met with Martin and Barnhouse appeared surprized and dismayed and said they would gather up all copies of that book in their institutions and change those words in any forthcoming copies! So this is a definite incident wherein they changed something Ellen White said! Then Leroy Froom, the Editor of Ministry magazine at the time (1957), printed an article that said Jesus took the sinless nature of Adam BEFORE the fall. That magazine was eventually sent to hundreds of thousands Babylonian pastors, libraries, etc., as a testament to what SDA’s supposedly believed. And no attrition was ever made for this unpardonable, antichrist sin. Antichrist”?! Yes indeed, for the Bible says that any who do not believe that Jesus came in the likeness of SINFUL FLESH is antichrist. The flesh of Adam before the fall was not SINFUL FLESH! That Sin is antichrist and has gone unrepented of for decades now. That make it unpardonable. Many folk who were taught that antichrist error in 1957, died believing that antichrist doctrine.

106.  There has been big time financial fraud at the General Conference Headquarters Treasurer office. (Scroll down for links wherein David Denis, the Treasurer at the time, blew the whistle on the double-dealing fraud he was expected to engage in.

107.  Dr. B. B. Beach, the leader of the Department of Public Affairs and Religious Liberty for the church before the current leader John Graz, told me over the phone (my wife was listening on another phone), that the church was not a member of the WCC or any National Council of Churches. One week later, I obtained 12 copies of a World Council of Churches publication entitled Directory Christian Councils. In that book published in 1975, it lists the SDA church as FULL MEMBERS of the WCC in five countries of the world. [Hong Kong, Bahamas, Belize, Sweden, and the Cook Islands]. On the last page, page 244, it says that the SDA church is in “working relationship” with the World Council of Churches. Then a short time later the Adventist Review, no less, printed an article about 1500 SDA Hungarians revolting because they found out that the SDA church was a member of the Hungarian Council of Free Churches, the National Council for Hungary. The Review admitted that the church had been a member in that council for 30 years! So Dr. Beach flat out lied to me over the phone! And current leaders like Graz are still lying about SDA ecumenical complicity.

108.  Isaiah 8:9-12 says that all who associate with God’s enemies will be broken in pieces, stated three times to express the gravity of this unpardonable sin.

109.  In Jeremiah 11:9-15, the Jews of Jeremiah’s generation conspired with God’s enemies. God told him not to even pray for them and that if he did, He would not hear his prayer(s). That, my friend, is one of God’s most definite lines I the sand—conspiring with His enemies after knowing the truth. Ellen White quotes the apostles saying that this situation would have an end-time fulfillment amongst professing Seventh-day Adventists.

110.  Ellen White said that each of the ancient prophets spoke more for our time than the Jews, because we had/have their example to learn from. Thus, according to Ezekiel Chapter 5, new movement Adventism has broken God’s statutes more than any other nation meaning denomiNATION in the case of modern-day Israel.

111.  Per the same principle (as above), Ezekiel 8 mentions about 25 men with their backs to the Temple, worshipping the sun. There is an executive committee of about 25 men at General Conference Headquarters. All this is symbolic of the fact that SDA leaders will instruct their members to keep Sunday when the crunch comes per Ellen White following prophesying: "The Lord has a controversy with his professed people in these last days. In this controversy men in responsible positions will take a course directly opposite to that pursued by Nehemiah. They will not only ignore and despise the Sabbath themselves, but they will try to keep it from others by burying it beneath the rubbish of custom and tradition. In churches and in large gatherings in the open air, ministers, will urge upon the people the necessity of keeping the first day of the week." E.G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 1, p. 405, col. 3.

“The enemy knows that if the church can be controlled by political enactments, if she can be led to unite with the world, she virtually acknowledges him as her head. Then the authority of man-made commandments will work to oppose the rule of the government of heaven. Under the leadership of Satan men will dispense with the righteous, holy enactments of God concerning the Sabbath, the observance of which is to be a sign between God and His people forever. {ST, November 22, 1899 par. 1}

112.  Ellen White said that the church would change leaders and know it not.

Change Leaders: "There is manifested on the part of men in responsible positions an unwillingness to confess where they have been in the wrong and their neglect is working disaster, not only to themselves, but to the churches....You will be left to make mistakes of a similar character, you will continue to lack wisdom, and will can sin righteousness and righteousness sin. The multitude of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will change leaders, and not know that you have done so." E.G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 2, 448.

 

Change Leaders: "Men in positions of responsibility are in danger of changing leaders. This I know, for it has been plainly revealed to me." E.G. White, Series B, #2, p. 48.

 

Change Leaders: "Men who might have stood in clear light, doing valiant service as ministers of the gospel and medical missionaries, have been accepting false theories and sophistries which originated with the father of lies, and yet they do not realize that they have changed." E.G. White, Special Testimonies, Series B, #7, p. 13-16, November 20, 1905.

 

Change Leaders: "Satan will set up his hellish banner right in your homes, and you will be so blinded to the real nature of his deceptions that you reverence it as the banner of Christ." E.G. White, The 1888 Materials, p. 505.

 

Change Leaders: "They will not recognize him [Satan] as their enemy, that old serpent, but they will consider him a FRIEND, one who is doing a good work." Testimonies, vol. 5, p. 294.

 

Change Leaders: Satan has laid his plans to undermine our faith in the history of the cause and work of God. I am deeply in earnest as I write this. Satan is working with men in prominent positions to sweep away the foundation of our faith. Shall we allow this to be done, brethren?" E.G. White, Review and Herald, Nov. 19, 1903.

 

Change Leaders if mistakes are not admitted and Changed: "If when the Lord reveals your errors you do not repent or make confession, his providence will bring you over the ground again and again. You will be left to make mistakes of a similar character, you will continue to lack wisdom, and will call sin righteousness, and righteousness sin. The multitude of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will CHANGE LEADERS, AND NOT KNOW THAT YOU HAVE DONE SO." E.G. White, Review and Herald, vol. 2, p. 449.

 

Satan has come in

 

PH086 - Special Testimony to Battle Creek Church (1898)

The Lord Jesus demands that every soul make a reality of truth. Show that you believe that you are not half with Christ and half with the world. Of all such Christ says, "I would thou wert cold or hot. So then, because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth." He who appreciates the love of Christ, will be an earnest worker with Christ to bring other souls as sheaves to the Master. Thorough work is always done by all who are connected with Christ. They bear fruit to his glory. But indolence and carelessness and frivolity separate the soul from Christ, and Satan comes in to work his will with the poor worldly subject, We have a great truth, but through careless indifference the truth has lost its force upon us. Satan has come in with his specious temptations, and has led the professed followers of Christ away from their Leader, classing them with the foolish virgins. {PH086 23.2}

 

Change Leaders: "Satan has COME IN with his specious temptations, and has led the professed followers of Christ away from the [PILOT] Leader (Christ), classing them with the foolish virgins." Testimonies to Ministers, p. 130.

 

Change Leaders: "Refusing to follow in the path of obedience, they transferred their allegiance to Satan. The enemy rejoiced in his success in effacing the divine image from the minds of the people that God had chosen as His representatives. Through [ECUMENICAL] intermarriage with idolaters and CONSTANT ASSOCIATION WITH THEM [Isa. 8:9-20], Satan brought about that for which he had long been working,--a national apostasy." Fundamentals to Christian Education, p. 449.

 

Change Leaders: "The recreant priests added licentiousness to the dark catalogue of their crimes yet they still polluted by their presence the tabernacle of the Lord, and, laden with sin, dared to come into the presence of a holy God. As the men of Israel witnessed the corrupt course of the priests, they thought it safer for their families not to come up to the appointed place of worship. Many went from Shiloh with their peace disturbed, their indignation aroused, until they at last determined to offer their sacrifices themselves, concluding that this would be fully as acceptable to God, as to sanction in any manner the abominations practiced in the Sanctuary." E.G. White, The Signs of the Times, vol. 1, p. 264, col. 3, December 1, 1881.

 

113.    Ellen White spoke of other ships which SDA leaders and laity alike have ignored to their eternal peril. 

 

Defective Ship: We can know that if a ship has false teaching it will not survive the rigors of the ocean of strife and turmoil: "You have had too great confidence in the ability of these men. A ship may be sound in nearly every respect but if there is one defect,--a bit of timber worm-eaten,--the lives of all on board are imperilled." E.G. White, Testimonies, vol. 4, 322.

 

Ship Drifting at Sea Without Chart or Compass: "The facts concerning the real condition of the professed people of God, speak more loudly than their profession, and make it evident that some power has cut the cable that anchored them to the Eternal Rock, and that they are drifting away to sea, without chart or compass." E.G. White, Selected Messages, vol. 2, p. 128, (Review and Herald, Vol. 2, p. 231). (Also see Fundamentals of Christian Education, p. 348).

 

"The people to whom God has entrusted eternal interests, the depositaries of truth pregnant with eternal results, the keepers of light that is to illuminate the whole world, have lost their bearings." Testimonies to Ministers, p. 397.

 

"Every ship sailing the sea of life needs to have the divine Pilot on board but when storms arise, when tempests threaten, many persons push their Pilot overboard, and commit their bark into the hand of finite man, or try to steer it themselves. Then disaster and wreckage generally follow, and the Pilot is blamed for running them into such dangerous waters." E.G. White, Fundamentals of Christian Education, p. 348.

 

Is the Pilot on board the SDA New Movement, New Organization Ship described in Selected Messages, vol. 1, 204-5? Page 205 says He [God] has been removed!

 

Noble Ship #1: "I lately read of a NOBLE SHIP that was plowing its way across the sea, when at midnight, with a terrific crash, it struck upon a rock the passengers were awakened only to see with horror their hopeless condition, and with the ship they sank to rise no more. The MAN AT THE HELM [VERSUS CHRIST] had mistaken the beacon light, and hundreds of souls were at a moment's warning launched into eternity." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Bk. 2, 128.

 

        Noble Ship #2: "There is no need to doubt, to be fearful that the work will not succeed. God is at the head of the work, and He will set everything in order. If maters need adjusting at the head of the work, God will attend to that, and work to right every wrong. Let us have faith that God is going to carry the noble ship which bears the people of God safely into port." E.G. White, Selected Messages, vol. 2, 390.

 

Immediately preceding the above statement is the admonition:

 

"We cannot now step off the foundation that God has established. We cannot now enter into any new organization for this would mean apostasy from the truth.--Manuscript 1290, 1905. Selected Messages, Bk. 2, 390.

 

In light of all the statements involving a ship, we must interpret them all so that none contradict. The best way to achieve this goal is to look for qualifying words. In the above statement the qualifying words are NOBLE SHIP and THE PEOPLE OF GOD. Who are the people of God? Those who keep His commandments and heed the Laodicean message.

 

114.  The new movement SDA “church” has consulted Roman Catholicism and the World Council of Churches on Jesuit style Spiritual Formation exercises which derive straight from Ignatius Loyola, the originator of the Society of Jesus Jesuit Order. Once again, this is after the order of witchcraft by consulting and following Rome on how to have spirituality. Jesuit Spiritual Formation [the exercises (disciplines) of Ignatius Loyola], is taught at Andrews University. Russell and Colin Standish, Half a Century of Apostasy, p. 166.

 

SDA Institutions around the world have hired magicians to perform in its grade schools and at lyceum events. The Bible equates magic with witchcraft. Sorcery is the same as magic and vice versa. This primes God’s people for the magic employed by Satan at the end-time.

 

 2Ch 33:6 And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

–noun

1.

a person who practices magic; magician or sorcerer.

2.

a conjurer or juggler.

115.  Theater attendance and dramatic plays conducted by the church.

 

116.  Consumption of coffee and caffeine containing beverages. Ellen White says that coffee drinking is a sin.

 

117.  An on-going rejection of true righteousness by faith since 1888.

 

118.  Admixing a cheap grace, counterfeit gospel with the true, when Paul says to accurse anyone, even an angel who should come with any other gospel. Jesus and His followers taught ONE gospel.

 

119.  Rejection of the counsel of the witness to Laodicea—to buy gold tried in the fire which is faith that works by love.

 

120.  Failure to recognize that grace means power as well as pardon. See Romans 1:5 and the following statements by Ellen White defining grace:

 

"Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power." Eph. 3:7.

 

"By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name." Romans 1:5.

 

“When sin struggles for the master in your soul, and burdens the conscience, look to the Saviour. His grace is sufficient to subdue sin. Let your grateful heart, trembling with uncertainty, turn to Him. Lay hold on the hope set before you. Christ waits to adopt you into His family His strength will help your weakness; He will lead you step by step. Place your hand in His, and let Him guide you.” E.G. White, Ministry of Healing, p. 85.

 

"God would have us quicken our powers by appropriating his grace and communicating it. Just in accordance with the GRACE IMPARTED will be the GRACE GIVEN US TO USE. We must work while the day lasts. Pure doctrines have been lost and as the result, error has taken the field where truth alone should be. God's requirements are lost sight of. All that can possibly be done should be done to dispel the moral darkness." E.G. White, Review and Herald, 07-26-98.

 

We see clearly from the above statement that Grace is imparted and Grace is Given us to use. God would have us QUICKEN OUR POWERS by appropriating His Grace and communicating it. If we can quicken our powers by appropriating His Grace, I believe that this refers to grace as power for obedience, Rom. 1:5. Some cannot see or discern this device this gift God has proffered, but that does not discount or do despite to the gift.

 

"But by repentance and faith we are justified before God, and through divine grace enabled to render obedience to His commandments." E.G. White, The Sanctified Life, p. 81.

 

“They must have His grace, the Spirit of Christ, to help their infirmities, or they cannot form a Christian character. Jesus loves to have us come to Him, just as we are—sinful, helpless, dependent.” Faith and Works, p. 38.

 

121.  As prophesied by Ellen White, the condition of the church after holding its revivals has gone from bad to worse:  “The reformations that were shown me, were not reformations from error to truth; but from bad to worse; for those who professed a change of heart, had only wrapt about them a religious garb, which covered up the iniquity of a wicked heart. Some appeared to have been really converted, so as to deceive God's people; but if their hearts could be seen, they would appear as black as ever.” {RH, August 1, 1849 par. 12}

 

122.  The church has fulfilled Matthew 23:15, by crossing land and sea to make proselytes and then making them twice the child of hell they already were, by teaching them false doctrines admixed to truth.

 

123.  The church has catered to homosexual behaviour by not speaking out against it and by actually supporting it in too many cases. Scripture says that homosexuals will not be in heaven. Walla Walla College had a school structured, gay support group which helps students to live with their guilt and overcome it.  "Many homosexuals 'want to be reconciled to God, in spite of what is viewed as a sinful nature of choice."  Gay Support Group Forms, WWC Collegian, November 30, 1995.  "The Gay and Lesbian Christian Alliance, an organization made up of Walla Walla College staff and students, seeks to give support to homosexuals and to inform students on issues surrounding homosexuality." ibid.  "The GLCA is advised by a student and faculty board which include chairman Dr. Nelson Thomas, vice president of Student Affairs...Douglas Taylor, financial aid counselor...Dr. Ernie Bursey, theology professor...." ibid.  For more info write Pilgrims Rest, Beersheba Springs, TN 37305 and ask for WM 676-679.

 

When I was a student at what was then Southern Missionary College, now Southern College, they had a special sectioned cordoned off in the dorm for homosexuals. I worked with one of them in the bakery there, and he told me that I would be surprised how many SDA pastors are homosexual.

 

124.  The SDA Church had a gold medal struck for the Pope of Rome, the vicar of Satan on ear

Popes medal

For the reason that Dr. B. B. Beach was present on that occasion was due to the fact ... Switzerland with Dr. Lukas Vischer, Secretary of the Faith and Order ... On page 100-101 of their book, "So Much in Common:' Beach and Vischer list ...www.sdadefend.com/Defend-foundation/popemedl.htm - Cached

 

125.  Dr. Bert Beverly Beach, former Public Affairs leader for the church wrote a book in collaboration with Dr. Lukas Vischer, Secretary of the Faith and Order Commission of the WCC, entitled So Much in Common, trying to depict what Adventists have in common with Babylon and Mother Rome.

 

126.  The Counsel of Free Churches in Hungary set up a seminary and the Hungarian Seventh-day Adventist Union sent potential pastors for training in this Seminary. Further, the SDA church was an active participant in the Council , the Union president being a member of its central committee.  Satan makes SDA’s leaders in high places in these WCC oriented organizations and they feel proud of that. For example, Dr. Beach was the president of the Faith and Order Commission for years. In Red Deer Alberta, near where I reside, the SDA minister was made president of the Ministerial Association. This type of thing is much more prevalent than SDA’s are led to believe.

 

The above listing is far from exhaustive but it will provide a springboard for sighing and crying for all the abominations committed by the professing apostate Seventh-day Adventist church. And remember that this sighing and crying is conditional to being sealed by the man in linen, Ezekiel 9:6.

 

Any of the items not repented of by continued persistence in, become unpardonable, but there are some that are unpardonable when they are committed after knowing the truth. That will be the study of this last part of this document.

 

Definite Unpardonable Sin After Knowing the Truth

 

The Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy make it clear that some sins are unpardonable after one has known the truth concerning them. We had best be aware of such serious sins.

 

Unpardonable Sin #1: Violation of Isaiah 8:9-12:  Isaiah 8:9-12 makes it clear that there is but one option to violating those verses and that is being “broken in pieces,” stated three times to connote the seriousness of such violations as forming and/or joining in association, counsels/councils, girdings and/or confederacy with God’s enemies after hearing and understanding the message of God’s Word to come out from them and be separate. There are inherent overlappings on some of the following descriptions.

Unpardonable sin #2: Violation of the Second Angel’s Message and the Midnight Cry: The Spirit of Prophecy instructs us that all who heard and understood the second angel’s message and the Midnight Cry that gave power to that message in 1844, but then or later rejected that message, found it impossible to get back on the pathway to heaven. Word to the Little Flock, p. 14. She never reneged on that aspect of the shut door. And had she reneged, she would have been in violation of Isaiah 8:9-12.

 

It is manifest rejection and violation of the second angel’s message and the Midnight Cry to return to liaison with Babylon’s associations, counsels/councils/ girdings and confederacies. All who imbibe this violation knowingly, after knowing the truth, commit unpardonable sin and corporate responsibility accrues for this sin committed by the leaders of the church.

 

26For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

 27But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

 28He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

 29Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

 30For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

 31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Wilful sin has to do with ignoring important knowledge—truth.

People quench the Holy Spirit by overriding the way it guides them over a long period of time! Hebrews 3:13 reveals that some become “hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” But this hardening process does not occur overnight. It takes time. People have to persistently choke God’s Spirit. Eventually, this ongoing action becomes “wilful,” or premeditated, deliberate. Chapter 10, verse 29 explains that those who practice sin have “trodden (Christ) under foot.” They have counted His “blood” as “unholy.” This leads to the all-important statement that they “have done despite unto the Spirit of grace [forgiveness].” The key is they have committed wilful sin—meaning full of will!

Consider for a moment the attitude of the Pharisees. John 8:30 records, “As He spoke these words, many believed on Him. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, If you continue in My word, then are you My disciples indeed” (John 8:30-31).

This is basic Christian instruction. Christians believe in (on) Christ’s sacrifice, and then they practice—“continue in”—His word!

Some stop at the “believe on” stage. They do not go on to practice Christianity. They do not actively emulate the life of Christ. Their thinking—and “Christianity”—comes from entirely different motives.

Six verses later, Christ confronted the very ones who just “believed on Him.” Notice how hostile and murderous their attitudes quickly became: “...but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you...But now you seek to kill Me, a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard of God...And if I say the truth, why do you not believe Me?” (vs. 37, 40, 46).

These are extraordinary statements! They reflect the attitudes of so many today. Many who claim to “love Jesus” do not obey “His words.” These are deceived and unconverted. They have been seduced into believing in a false conversion. On the other hand, the few truly converted Christians today are seen as un-Christian by the world because they reject popular, but false, doctrines.

The Pharisees and certain others appeared to want to follow Christ—maybe even initially thought themselves sincere—but holding deceitful, murderous thoughts under the surface.

To intentionally plot, act or move against God’s Spirit is also to consciously know what you are doing in attributing the power of God to the devil. Christ was warning the Pharisees that this is what they were in danger of doing. When one deliberately—with knowledge—ignores, squelches, or quenches the warning pricks coming from the Holy Spirit within a converted mind, they are passing the threshold of the unpardonable sin. They are making a “wilful” decision not to respond to God’s Spirit. This blasphemes the work of His Spirit.

Therefore, ANY sin that is continued (practiced) and remains unrepented of—by wilful choice—becomes unpardonable. God will not forgive it because it has not been preceded by repentance!

Unpardonable Sin #3: God’s Word says that if one speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven. Is acting against the Holy Spirit the same as speaking against it? Do actions speak louder than words—even to God? The answer to this question should be obvious to wise virgins. Isaiah 8:9-12 proves that certain actions against the Holy Spirit result in unpardonable sin. Jeremiah 11:9-15 proves that certain actions result in unpardonable sin and all within one generation of that era of the Jews. God instructed Jeremiah not to even pray for the Jews at that time because they conspired with His enemies. This proves that God regards conspiracy/confederacy with His enemies as unpardonable sin, if this occurs after one knows the truth—for at that point God has no additional appeal once truth is rejected. Notice:

 

 4For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

 5And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

 6If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. Heb. 6:4-6.

That (above) is exactly what Ellen White is saying in Words to the Little Flock, p. 14, in other words.

Mat 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy [against] the [Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

 

Mat 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the [world] to come.

 

Luk 12:10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

 

World English Dictionary

blaspheme  (blæsˈfiːm)

 

— vb

1. ( tr ) to show contempt or disrespect for (God, a divine being, or sacred things), esp in speech

2. ( intr ) to utter profanities, curses, or impious expressions

 

[C14: from Late Latin blasphēmāre , from Greek blasphēmein  from blasphēmos blasphemous]

The professing SDA church fell from God’s grace years ago by rejecting Spirit of Prophecy admonitions. We fall in proportion to the light we reject says Ellen White. So now the church does not have the spiritual discernment to see wherein it has fallen. It cannot understand the deep implications of the Trinity Doctrine, for example. It cannot understand how and why that doctrine of Rome sweeps away the entire Christian economy. By the same process, the church leaders cannot see the deep implications of their ecumenical liaison with Babylon. For that reason, it will never be repented of and that is how and why a church descends from being God’s chosen, to a fallen fiend following Satan as its leader.

Unpardonable Sin #4: Rebellion is as the Sin of Witchcraft 1Sa 15:23: For rebellion [is as] the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness [is as] iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from [being] king.

 

With what is witchcraft classed by Paul, and what does he say to those who are guilty of such things?


"Idolatry , witchcraft; hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies. . . . I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." Gal. 5:20-23.

 

Ellen White said that Saul sealed his doom when he consulted the witch of Endor. SDA leaders have consulted spiritualists Rick Warren and Bill Hybels as to how to grow churches. They have consulted Jesuit Catholics on Spiritual Formation (Eastern Mysticism) as a means for receiving the Holy Spirit. If this was unpardonable sin for Saul, it will be so for SDA leaders.

 

In Jeremiah 11:9-15, God’s Word proves that any generation can commit unpardonable sin because those verses instructed Jeremiah not to pray for a people who conspired/confederated with God’s enemies. Will God have to repent to the apostate Jews of that generation?

Ellen White said that a modern-day counterpart involving God’s instruction to Jeremiah in Chapters 7:16 and 11:14, would occur. This is as serious as it could get folk because the only end-time counterpart to the Jews, having been a oncechosen,” “commandment-keeping people, “remnant,” are professing Seventh-day Adventists. There will be a faithful remnant that is saved by going forth “out of Jerusalem,” once more time. Isaiah 37:31, 32, and that will be the faithful who go out from the omega of apostasy new movement, professing to be the Seventh-day Adventist church.

Isaiah 37:31, 32, is a direct parallel to Ezekiel 5:3, wherein a small number are taken in “His skirts,” and saved, just as occurred in the last literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9. Any future literal fulfillment must equate with the last A.D. 34-70 literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9. Never forget that Ellen White said that Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled “beginning at His Sanctuary,” the House of Jacob, those who have been privileged with great light, 5T 211.

 

COUNTERPART: "The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants, 'Pray not thou for this people [Jer. 7:16 and 11:14], neither lift up cry nor prayer for them neither make intercession to me for I will not hear thee.' The prophet thus describes the sins which had called forth this fearful denunciation: 'The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means and my people love to have it so and what will ye do in the end thereof?' 'From the least of them even unto the greatest of them, every one is given to covetousness and from the prophet even unto the priest, every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace.' The apostles declare that this state of things will find its COUNTERPART in the last days. Many have a form of godliness, but in their daily life deny the power thereof. They have ceased to be convicted of their sins or alarmed at their state. They say in their hearts, 'The church is flourishing. Peace and spiritual prosperity are within her borders.' The words of the prophet may well apply to these self-deceivers, 'They have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them." E. G. White,  Second Advent Review and Sabbath Herald,  11-07-82.

                   

COUNTERPART: "In the time of the Saviour, the Jews had so covered over the precious jewels of truth with the rubbish of tradition and fable, that it was impossible to distinguish the true from the false. The Saviour came to clear away the rubbish of superstition and long-cherished errors, and to set the jewels of God's word in the framework of truth. What would the Saviour do if he should come to us now as he did to the Jews? He would have to do a similar work in clearing away the rubbish of tradition and ceremony. The Jews were greatly disturbed when he did this work [As are SDAs today!]. They had lost sight of the original truth of God, but Christ brought it again to view. It is our work to free the precious truths of God from superstition and error." E.G. White,  Review and Herald, vol. 2, 308. 

 

There is a modern COUNTERPART to the ancient apostate "chosen people" of God. That modern COUNTERPART is the people who claim to be the modern "chosen people" of God, the remnant, God’s commandment-keeping people if you will.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

"Among the professed followers of Christ, there is the same pride, formalism, vainglory, selfishness, and OPPRESSION, that existed in the Jewish nation." E.G. White, Sketches from the Life of Paul, 251-252.

 

"God's professed people are selfish and self-caring....They are idolaters, and are worse, in the sight of God, than the heathen, graven-image worshippers who have had no knowledge of a better way." Testimonies, Vol. 2, 440-441.

 

Isa 63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, [and] he fought against them.

“Men will go forth in the spirit and power of Elijah to prepare the way for the second advent of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is their work to make crooked things straight. Some things must be torn down, some things must be built up. The old treasures must be reset in a framework of truth. They are to preach God's Word; their testimony must not be molded by the opinions and ideas that have been regarded as sound, but by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.” [1888 Mtl. p. 169 para. 01] p. 506, Para. 3, [1888MS].

"The intercession of Christ in man's behalf in the sanctuary above is as essential to the plan of salvation as was His death upon the cross. By His death He began that work which after His resurrection He ascended to complete in heaven. We must by faith enter within the veil, 'whither the forerunner is for us entered.' Hebrews 6:20:" E.G. White, The Great Controversy, 1911 edition, p. 489.

          

"The leaven if godliness has not entirely lost its power. At the time when the danger and depression of the church are greatest, the little company who are standing in the light will be sighing and crying for the abominations that are done in the land. But MORE ESPECIALLY will their prayers arise in behalf of the church because ITS MEMBERS are doing after the manner of the world." Testimonies, vol. 5, 209, 210.

 

"Characteristics of True Reformers.--Here are given the characteristics of those who shall be reformers, who will bear the banner of the third angel's message, those who avow themselves God's commandment-keeping people, and who honor God, and are earnestly engaged, in the sight of all the universe, in building up the old waste places. Who is it that calls them, The repairers of the breach, The restorers of paths to dwell in? It is God. Their names are registered [written--Heb. 12:22, 23] in heaven as reformers, restorers, as raising the foundations of many generations." E. G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 4, 1151.

 

"The things you have described as taking place in Indiana, the Lord has shown me would take place just before the close of probation. Every uncouth thing will be demonstrated. There will be shouting, with drums, music, and dancing. The senses of rational beings will become so confused that they cannot be trusted to make right decisions. And this is called the moving of the Holy Spirit. 

The Holy Spirit never reveals itself in such methods, in such a bedlam of noise. This is an invention of Satan to cover up his ingenious methods for making of none effect the pure, sincere, elevating, ennobling, sanctifying truth for this time. Better never have the worship of God blended with music, than to use musical instruments to do the work which last January was represented to me would be brought into our camp meetings. The truth for this time needs nothing of this kind in its work of converting souls. A bedlam of noise shocks the senses and perverts that which if conducted aright might be a blessing. The powers of satanic agencies blend with the din and noise, to have a carnival, and this is termed the Holy Spirit's working." E. G. White,  Selected Messages, Vol. 2, 36.

 

The above statement has already been fulfilled at SDA campmeetings where every uncouth thing has been brought into the youth tents. I and many others have seen it with my own eyes. The leaders try to keep the parents from the youth tents so they won’t see what is going on, but it is Satanic. This all came in via the Celebration Movement which SDA’s garnered from Vatican II and Pentecostalism. Truly, just like Jeremiah 11:15, when the church does evil, it rejoices (CELEBRATES!).

 

SDA Pastor Jack Sequeira: "Christ will never take us to heaven as individuals, but only as members of His church." Jack Sequeira, Beyond Belief, p. 115, published by Pacific Press, a Seventh-day Adventist publishing house.

 

"We ARE NOT saved as a sect; no denominational name has any virtue to bring us into favor with God. We are saved individually as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ." E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, vol. 2, p. 464.

Ellen White was consistent. She prophesied Ezekiel 9 destruction for the final omega apostasy SDA church. She prophesied the SDA new movement would refuse the conditions and that because of this God’s promises will not be fulfilled to that church. Notice:

                                                           

"Jesus sends HIS PEOPLE a message of warning to prepare them for his coming. To the prophet John was made known the closing work in the great plan of man's redemption. He beheld an angel flying 'in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him for the hour of his Judgment is come and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters [Rev. 14:6, 7.].

The angel represented in prophecy as delivering this message,  symbolizes a class of faithful men, who, obedient to the promptings of God's Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message was not to be committed to the religious leaders of the people. They had failed to preserve their connection with God, and had REFUSED THE LIGHT FROM HEAVEN therefore they WERE NOT of the number described by the apostle Paul: 'But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day we are not of the night nor of darkness' [1 Thess. 5:4, 5]. 

The watchmen upon the walls of Zion should be the first to catch the tidings of the Saviour's advent, the first to lift their voices to proclaim him near, the first to warn the people to prepare for his coming. But they were at ease, dreaming of peace and safety, while the people were asleep in their sins. Jesus saw HIS CHURCH, like the barren fig-tree, covered with pretentious leaves, yet destitute of precious fruit. There was a boastful observance of the forms of religion, while the spirit of true humility, penitence and faith--which alone could render the service acceptable to God--was lacking. Instead of the graces of the Spirit, there were manifested pride, formalism, vainglory, selfishness, oppression. A BACKSLIDING CHURCH closed their eyes to the signs of the times. God did nor forsake them, or suffer his faithfulness to fail but they departed from him, and SEPARATED THEMSELVES from his love. As they REFUSED TO COMPLY WITH THE CONDITIONS, his promises were NOT FULFILLED to them."  E.G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy,  vol. 4, pp. 199-200 [The 1884 edition of The Great Controversy, 199, 200].
