Dear Reader,

Bruce Bivens, the author of Are We Missing Something Here—The Godhead, The Holy Spirit, and the “Infinite Cost” of Our Salvation, has graciously consented to let me post his book in full on my Website. After bringing up the following link, select all of the document, put it in Word, and view as Print Layout. Then you will have easy to read narrower margins just as the real book presents. Or click the link to my duplication of Bruce’s book which is just below the link to Bruce's original copy. The advantages to my link are:

·       The marginal layout is easier to read for those who do not have Microsoft Word.

·       My reproduction correlates the pages to the same as they appear in the book.

·       Bruce’s original version does not give the pagination of the book.

The link to Bruce’s original manuscript copy is:

Click here for Bruce Bivens Book on the Godhead and the Holy Spirit Versus the Trinity Doctrine

The link to my reproduction of Bruce's book is:

Ellen White lists the Godhead as one of the pillars of Adventism, to wit:

Godhead as a pillar doctrine -- Personality of God and of Christ Landmarks: "Those who seek to remove the old landmarks are not holding fast they are not remembering how they have received and heard. Those who try to bring in theories that would remove the pillars of our faith concerning the sanctuary or concerning the personality of God or of Christ, are working as blind men. They are seeking to bring in uncertainties and to set the people of God adrift without an anchor." {MR760 9.5}

I stress that all who can afford the book should purchase it.

Brother James,

Please use THIS attached copy as it includes the PREFACE and is the ENTIRE book as it is now in print (although the WORD copy does not match the Print copy in terms of corresponding pages).  Please DELETE the other copy so that you don't accidently use it now or in the future.  Also, if Ron would be interested in providing a "Downloadable" copy of my book on his website -- please tell him that he may use this WORD version or I can provide him with a PDF version.  Either may be distributed without charge.  Please note that there ARE some spelling and Typo errors in the WORD copy -- but none are of enough consequence as to be a major issue.

Dear Ron,

One of the  greatest blessings of my life is this grace to understand from you and Bruce this amazing truth about Christ and His Infinite Sacrifice! I started to share with a group of study and prayer this thing and I assure you our life is changing...They are asking me to keep insisting on this blessed truth over and over again...We have come to the conclusion that this is the Present Truth- the only Truth able to produce a real reformation in the Christian life! Also, I believe This Truth is the Key for the deepest and truest understanding of Daniel and Revelation including the great controversy between Christ and Satan. Without this divine perspective the whole history of salvation is a nonsense, its earthly actors being just poor puppets playing a futile role in an cynical orchestrated drama...Your ministry is a blessing for me and my friends Ron! May The Lord take care of all your needs, in Christ, George

Praise God for your response to the "highest good, crowning gift that heaven can bestow." I say with the authority of the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus, that no message of any Elijah will ever transcend the "highest good, crowning gift," that will ever be given to mankind. I believe that no person will aspire to be part of the 144,000 without a thorough knowledge of this gift, and what transpired in the Incarnation of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in His Incarnation. The subject will continue to be unfolded for eternity, but what is required for being one of the 144,000 is depicted in Bruce's book and that book is in the files of this forum.


God has used Bruce in a mighty way to capsulate teachings I have expounded for years before Bruce's book was printed in 2008. James Franks, a friend of Bruce’s, could tell you that he conveyed my teaching to Bruce over a long period of time. But God used Bruce to present it from the Sanctuary Service and that presentation is beautiful.


No forthcoming message from any "Elijah" could possibly exceed the compelling motivation of the truth that was achieved for us in the Incarnation of Jesus and the gift of His Divine Nature Holy Spirit to us for empowerment and regeneration back into His image. Nothing is possible without His Divine Nature. Without it no man can do anything.



You realize that Jesus said He had 7,000 others in Elijah's time who had not bowed the knee to Baal. I believe that He will have 144,000 who come in the spirit and power of Elijah at the end-time. No one person should ever claim this title, and it belongs to Ellen White if any single person were to be associated with the title. Gender does not enter the picture wherein the gift of the Holy Spirit is involved. No one man will ever transcend the message of what was achieved in the Incarnation of the Son of God. Think about it. Pray about it. This is really a common sense conclusion. The message as contained in Bruce's book achieves all of the following in the life of the reader, and if it does not, then the fault is with the reader and no greater and more compelling message will be forthcoming. If the "highest good, crowning gift that heaven can bestow" will not do the work in one's life, then NOTHING ELSE WILL.



I have reproduced Bruce's book for the poor (such as in Africa and other third world countries), but all who are able should purchase the book and consider it the most worthwhile investment they will ever make other than the Bible and the Holy Spirit of Prophecy upon which the book is based.


Mark this point with care: Other men with the Spirit of Elijah will come forth with inspiring and compelling messages to warn and encourage God's people; dreams and visions will come forth, but NOTHING will equal the "highest good, crowning gift that heaven can bestow," as portrayed in the true account of the Godhead and the greatest sacrifice that was made by the Son of God for man.


"Christ declared that after his ascension, he would send to his church, as his crowning gift, the Comforter, who was to take his place. This Comforter is the Holy Spirit,--the soul of his life, the efficacy of his church, the light and life of the world. With his Spirit Christ sends a reconciling influence and a power that takes away sin.

In the gift of the Spirit [HIS LIFE--THE SOUL OF HIS LIFE], Jesus gave to man the highest good that heaven could bestow....

The Spirit was given as a regenerating agency, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail....

It is by the Spirit that the heart is made pure. Through the Spirit the believer becomes a partaker of the divine nature. Christ has given his Spirit as a divine power to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil, and to impress his own character upon the church." E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, May 19, 1904, vol. 5, p. 42.


“Cumbered with humanity Christ could not be in every place personally, therefore it was altogether for their advantage that He should leave them to go to His Father and send the Holy Spirit to be His successor on earth. The Holy Spirit is Himself divested of the personality of humanity and independent thereof. He would represent Himself as present in all places by His Holy Spirit.” E.G. White, (Manuscript Releases Volume 14 (No’s 1081-1135) MR No.1084.


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

Malachi 3

1 2 3 4

1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.

5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.

6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

7 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?

8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.

10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.

12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

13 Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?

14 Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?

15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.


Malachi 4

1 2 3 4

For behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.

4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
