An In-depth Exposure of the Cherished Errors of the Professing SDA Church

       Dear Reader,

 

Are the abominations for which we are to sigh and cry mere minor issues? We are told that our very sealing is dependent upon whether or not we sigh and cry for ALL the abominations that be done in the church. Is that a serious issue? Ask yourself: Do my detractors sigh and cry for ALL the abominations in the church? Are the serious abominations for which we are to sigh and cry, mere minor errors? Do they require exaggeration, or are they sufficiently abhorrant to God, that according to Ellen White and God, they warrant another LITERAL fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 BEGINNING AT HIS SANCTUARY, the professing Seventh-day Adventist church?

“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}

“The class who do not feel grieved over their own spiritual declension, nor mourn over the sins of others, will be left without the seal of God.” . . . {Mar 240.2}

Will those who define the serious apostasies that I sigh and cry about as mere minor errors receive the seal of God? Will the blood of those they thus leaven with error be upon their backs?

Read the following link which enumerates the more serious abominations of the church leaders and then decide if you think they are mere minor errors that we should be silent about:

Here are some of the more serious cherished errors of the SDA church:

 

1. The most serious error made by SDA leaders and other members of the church is that the bad are shaken from the professing SDA church. Why? Because due to this error they believe the lie that no matter what the church does, the bad will finally be shaken out, so one should remain with the church no matter what apostasy it commits. Many SDA’s will be corporately guilty of unpardonable sin because of this heinous error.

 

If the bad are to be shaken from the professing SDA church, then why did Ellen White say that Ezekiel 9 will be LITERALLY fulfilled?

 

"Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel. These words will be literally fulfilled yet the time is passing, and the people are asleep. They refuse to humble their souls and to be converted. Not a great while longer will the Lord bear with the people who have such great and important truths revealed to them, but who refuse to bring these truths into their individual experience. The time is short. God is calling will YOU hear? Will YOU receive His message? Will YOU be converted before it is too late? Soon, very soon, every case will be decided for eternity. Letter 106, 1909, pp. 2, 3, 5, 7. (To "The churches in Oakland and Berkeley, September 26, 1909.)" E. G. White Manuscript Releases Volume One, p. 260.

 

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.

 

Why would there be any need for Ezekiel 9 to begin at His Sanctuary, modern-day spiritual Jerusalem, if all the bad were shaken out of its midst’s?

 

Ezekiel 22:17-31[KJV] tells us exactly where the tares and thorns are gathered for burning and melting.

 

1a. The serious error of disbelief in corporate responsibility:

 

The principle of corporate responsibility is found in Joshua Chapters 6 and 7. Ellen White states it thusly:

 

"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.

 

In our largest churches the greatest evils exist, because these have had the greatest light. They have not a true knowledge of God, and of Jesus Christ whom he has sent. The leaven of unbelief is working, and unless these evils which bring the displeasure of God are corrected in its members, the whole church stands accountable for them. The deep movings of the Spirit of God are not with them; the glorious presence of the King of saints, and his power to cleanse from all moral defilement, are not manifest among them. Many come to the assembly as worshipers, like the door upon its hinges. They understand not the true application of the Scriptures, nor the power of God. They have eyes, but they see not; ears have they, but they hear not; they continue in their evil ways, yet regard themselves as the privileged, obedient people who are doers of the word. A carnal security and ease in Zion prevail. Peace, peace, is sounded in her borders, when God has not spoken peace. They have forfeited the terms of peace; there is reason for an alarm to be sounded in all ‘my holy mountain.’ The sinners in Zion should be afraid, in a time when they do not expect it, sudden destruction will surely come upon all who are at ease.” {RH, December 23, 1890 par. 10}

 

Therefore, when the leaders commit unpardonable sin apostasy, the members are responsible for it because of the hierarchical structure of the church.

 

2.    The error that we are saved as a denomination:

 

"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.

 

3.    The error that the professing SDA church is the remnant church:

 

"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.

 

Notice that there is a little company who are standing in the light as opposed to the MEMBERS who are doing after the manner of the world. The little company standing in the light is the true remnant church.

 

The time when the danger and depression of the church is greatest is when the National Sunday Law is ENFORCED by penalty of no buy/sell and/or death. What will be the instruction of the professing SDA church prior to that time on day 250 after the legislation of the Sunday Law? On day 250, the church will commit the transgression of desolation of Daniel 8 by instructing its members to keep Sunday sacred. See this document for the reason why this occurs on day 250:

 

http://omega77.tripod.com/daniel8daniel12.htm

 

"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.  There are calamities on sea and land: and these calamities will increase, one disaster following close upon another; and the little band of conscientious Sabbath-keepers will be pointed out as the ones who are bringing the wrath of God upon the world by their disregard of Sunday."  E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, 3-18-1884.

 

Might that be one of the reasons Ezekiel 9 will LITERALLY begin at His Sanctuary? Alf Lohne, a high placed SDA Conference Official at the time he wrote a book on Russia, says in that book that when the Russian government instructed SDA parents to send their children to school on Sabbath, the SDA General Conference told the parents to obey Caesar rather than God. How did it become okay to disobey God’s commandments? And if the church did it then, is it a stretch to believe Ellen White’s statement (above) that the church will instruct its members to keep Sunday?

Every member of the professing SDA church who knows of the above apostasy is corporately responsible for it.

 

4.    The error that another SDA church would constitute an 8th church:

 

Ellen White said that all the messages to the seven churches apply to the end of time. Thus, there is no application of Laodicea ONLY to the final generation.

 

 "The names of the seven churches are symbolic of the church in different periods of the Christian Era. The number indicates completeness, and is symbolic of the fact that the messages [plural] extend to the end of time, while the symbols used reveal the condition of the church [collectively and generally] at different periods in the history of the world." E.G. White, The Acts of the Apostles, 585.

 

For example, in the Review & Herald, 2/25/1902 the Ephesus condition was "applicable to the Seventh-day Adventist churches in their present condition." And these (Sardis and Ephesus) conditions are reiterated as applying to "us as a people" in Manuscript (MS) 18, 1903.

 

James White said that the true church is Philadelphia:

 

In an article published in THE ADVENT REVIEW in September, 1850 by the Publishing Committee under the direction of James White, he stated for the record, just what their position was in regard to the 144,000 and the true church of the last days. As you will see, they wrote: "Now just as sure as the Philadelphia church is the true church of the last days, just so sure the 144,000 are sealed, just before the coming of the Lord."

 

And nowhere will you ever find that E.G. White ever countermanded this proclamation, although you will find that it was countermanded by the editorial staff of the SDA Bible Commentary! Whom do you choose to believe and follow?

 

Also, in Revelation 3:10-12, Philadelphia is made a pillar in the Temple and Ellen White said in Early Writings, p. 19, that only the 144,000 go into the Temple. So the 144,000 must be Philadelphians.

 

If a faithful company of true Seventh-day Adventists constituted another 8th church, then the following statement would make Ellen White a false prophet:

 

 "The Lord Jesus will always have a chosen people to serve Him. When the Jewish people rejected Christ, the Prince of life, He took from them the kingdom of God and gave it unto the Gentiles. God will continue to work on this principle with every branch of His work. When a church proves unfaithful to the work of the Lord, whatever their position may be, however high and sacred their calling, the Lord can no longer work with them. Others are then chosen to bear important responsibilities. But, if these in turn do not purify their lives from every wrong action, if they do not establish pure and holy principles in all their borders, then the Lord will grievously afflict and humble them and, unless they repent, will remove them from their place and make them a reproach.

God is not 'worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing' (Acts 17:25).” E. G. White, The Upward Look, 131.

 

“God's promises are all made upon conditions.”  Faith and Works, p.47. 

 

“God would in no wise excuse sin in a people who had been enlightened, even if He had, in their days of faithfulness and purity, loved them, and given them especial promises. These promises and blessings were always upon condition of obedience upon their part.” Spirit of Prophecy, Vol. 2, p. 54. 

 

“God had given them [the Jews] His gracious promise that they should become a peculiar treasure unto Him, on condition of obedience; but if they were disobedient He would reject them, and choose another people.” Signs of the Times Vol. 1 p. 152.

 

5.    The error that no man has any part in separating the wheat from the tares:

 

Ellen White said that the THIRD ANGEL is symbolic of faithful men and that the THIRD ANGEL selects the wheat from the tares. This is done by a shaking message from the faithful:

 

 "I then saw the THIRD ANGEL. Said my accompanying angel, 'Fearful is his work. Awful is his mission. He is the angel that is to select the wheat from the tares, and seal, or bind, the wheat for the heavenly garner." E.G. White, Early Writings, 118. 

 

Third Angel—“No one hears the voice of these angels, for they are a symbol to represent the people of God who are working in harmony with the universe of heaven.  Men and women, enlightened by the Spirit of God and sanctified through the truth, proclaim the three messages in their order.”  E.G. White, Selected Messages, Bk. 2, p. 387.

 

Who is the THIRD ANGEL?

 

 "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." E.G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy, Vol. 4, 199, 200.

 

The same principle is in the Bible wherein the disciples were told by Jesus that whomever they bound on earth would be bound in heaven:

 

Mat 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

 

6.    The cherished error that the gates of hell will never prevail against the professing SDA church:

 

"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. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT, than for thee." E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, vol. 3, p. 69, col. 3. 

 

The above statement coincides with Ellen White’s statement that Ezekiel 9 will be LITERALLY FULFILLED BEGINNING AT HIS SANCTUARY, 5T, 211 and Ezekiel 9:6.

 

Such pronouncements have the ring of a true prophet! Capernaum was a corporate city, and the SDA church militant is Biblically represented as a corporate city, the corporate city of Jerusalem. It will be brought down to hell as a corporate city [church], except for a small remnant who escape, Ezekiel 5:1-5, and Isaiah 37:31, 32, as was the case with Israel in the 70 A.D. destruction of Jerusalem.

 

7.    That it is the professing SDA church that appears as about to fall but does not:

 

The above statement has been totally misinterpreted and misapplied. Here is evidence to support these facts: http://omega77.tripod.com/doesnotfall.htm

 

8.    That any sin the church has or could commit is pardonable and that the church is not in apostasy:

 

Ellen White said that if one strayed from the Midnight Cry lighted pathway and the second angel’s message, it would be impossible to get back on the pathway to heaven. This implies unpardonable sin, and the church diverged from that pathway by its ecumenical fraternity with Babylon in violation of Isaiah 8:9-13. The only option given in those verses is being broken in pieces. That implies unpardonable sin. Here is additional evidence of what constitutes unpardonable sin as committed by the SDA professing church militant:

http://omega77.tripod.com/godheadnewlight1.htm

 

http://omega77.tripod.com/eze9co.htm

 

 

9.       That the SDA church neither can nor ever will become any part of Babylon. Here is what Ellen White says on this issue:

 

http://omega77.tripod.com/egwonbab.htm

 

10.     That once a church is chosen as a called out remnant, it is always such:

God's promises are all made upon conditions.  Faith and Works, p. 47.

God would in no wise excuse sin in a people who had been enlightened, even if He had, in their days of faithfulness and purity, loved them, and given them especial promises. These promises and blessings were always upon condition of obedience upon their part. SOP, Vol. 2, p. 54.

 

“God had given them [the Jews] His gracious promise that they should become a peculiar treasure unto Him, on condition of obedience; but if they were disobedient He would reject them, and choose another people.” Signs of the Times, Vol. 1, p. 152.

 

God’s Promises the Jews misinterpreted -- "The Jews had deceived themselves by misinterpreting the words of the Lord through his prophets, of his eternal favor to his people Israel.

'Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar the Lord of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever. Thus saith the Lord: If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord.' Jer. 31:35-37.

These words the Jews applied to themselves. And because God had shown them so great favor and mercy, they flattered themselves that, notwithstanding their sins and iniquities, he would still retain them as his favored people, and shower especial blessings upon them. They misapplied the words of Jeremiah and depended for their salvation upon being called the [chosen] children of Abraham. If they had indeed been worthy of the name of Abraham's children, they would have followed the righteous example of their father Abraham, and would have done the works of Abraham.

This has been the danger of the people of God in all ages and especially is this the danger of those living near the close of time. . . .

God would in no wise excuse sin in a people who had been enlightened, even if he had, in their days of faithfulness and purity, loved them, and given them especial promises. These promises and blessings were always upon condition of obedience upon their part.

The Lord pronounced, by the mouth of Moses, blessings upon the obedient, and curses upon the disobedient." E. G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 1, 123.

 

"The Lord Jesus will always have a chosen people to serve Him. When the Jewish people rejected Christ, the Prince of life. He took from them the kingdom of God and gave it unto the Gentiles. God will continue to work on this principle with every branch of His work. When a church proves unfaithful to the work of the Lord, whatever their position may be, however high and sacred their calling, the Lord can no longer work with them. Others are then chosen to bear important responsibilities. But, if these in turn do not purify their lives from every wrong action, if they do not establish pure and holy principles in all their borders, then the Lord will grievously afflict and humble them and, unless they repent, will remove them from their place and make them a reproach.

God is not 'worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing'” (Acts 17:25). E. G. White, The Upward Look, 131.

 

11.     That the professing SDA church is the mother bride, the 144,000 remnant, the church that triumphs:

 

Ellen White clearly stated that only the 144,000 go into the Temple on Mt. Zion, Early Writings, p. 19. She referred to the 144,000 as the remnant, the final generation that is translated without seeing death. Are all SDA’s from 1844 on translated without seeing death? By Ellen White’s definition, are all SDA's the remnant?

 

 "The woman is a symbol of the church, and the remnant of the church represents the Christians of the last generation of men, living just prior to the second advent. The dragon makes war on these for keeping the commandments of God, Sabbath and all, and having the testimony of Jesus Christ, which, according to the inspired definition of chap. xix, 10, 'is the spirit of prophecy.' Here, then, are the causes of the dragon's warfare upon the remnant. They teach the observance of the ten commandments, and the revival of the gifts, and acknowledge the gift of prophecy among them. When the Devil got one foot upon the fourth commandment, and the other upon the gifts planted in the Christian church by Jesus Christ, then his satanic majesty was filled with revengeful delight. But when the remnant, whom God designs to fit for translation to Heaven without seeing death, 'ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein,' then the dragon is wroth, and makes war on them.  

The true spirit of the dragonic host, which is already being somewhat developed, is vividly described in Isa. xxx, 8-13, as being manifested just prior to the sudden destruction of those who hate the pure testimony, and love smooth and deceitful things." E. G. White, Spiritual Gifts, Vol. III, 26, 27.

 

12.     That a true knowledge of the human nature of Jesus Christ is not essential to salvation.

 

“These members [reformers] hold certain positions on the human nature of Christ, the nature of sin, and the doctrine of righteousness by faith in an end-time setting....

The world church has never viewed these subjects [nature of Christ, nature of sin] as essential to salvation nor to the mission of the remnant church.... There can be no strong unity within the world church of God's remnant people so long as segments who hold these views vocalize and agitate them both in North America and in overseas divisions.  These topics need to be laid aside and not urged upon our people as necessary issues." ISSUES: The Seventh-day Adventist Church and Certain Private Ministries, p. 241.

 

Christ took our human nature to prove that we can overcome by His Divine Nature Holy Spirit dwelling in our humanity. That is why He gave us that gift.

 

"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.

 

2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 

 

"He (Christ) suffered the death which was ours, that we might receive the life which WAS His." Desire of Ages, p. 25 1 Cor. 11:24-265, cf. John 6:53, 54, Titus 3:5, 6.

 

"The sacrifice of Christ as an atonement for sin is the great truth around which all other truths cluster...I present before you the great, grand monument of mercy and regeneration, ...the Son of God uplifted on the cross." (GW 315.)

 

The human nature of Christ is totally involved with His sacrifice in atoning for man’s sin. Thus, the human nature of Christ is central to the great truth around which all other truths cluster.

 

13.     That a true knowledge of the Sanctuary Message as it relates to the antitypical day of atonement is not essential for salvation:

 

Most of the current SDA leadership denies that it is possible to overcome all known sin this side of glorification. They deny Final Generation Theology involving the 144,000 bride of Christ, whereby that bride will be perfect enough to stand without a mediator from the time Jesus leaves the Sanctuary until He comes for us in the clouds.

 

The above stated errant belief #13, precludes the biblical teaching about the 144,000 to the effect that they are without fault. Despite is thereby accrued against the Sanctuary Message and the Atonement whereby Jesus gives man His Holy Spirit Divine Nature for overcoming sin. Sin must cease before Jesus leaves the Sanctuary, for there would be no one to mediate sins after He leaves. Thus, by the errant believe of most SDA leaders today, the Sanctuary is thus GONE. The Atonement is thus GONE.

 

All leaders (and members) who do not agree with the stated salvific errors of most leaders that effectively destroy the Sanctuary and the Atonement messages, are still corporately responsible for financially supporting the ones who teach such serious error.

 

Ask your pastor if overcoming or righteousness by faith in an end-time setting is or is not essential for salvation!

 

14.     That love is perfection, and that it can be manifest without the keeping of the law.

 

Jesus gave the definition and supreme test for knowing that we love Him. He said that if we love Him we will keep His commandments. Thus, love is the fulfilling of the law. Gold tried in the fire is faith that works by love.

 

“The gold tried in the fire is faith that works by love.” Christ’s Object Lessons, 158.

 

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

 

Grace is viewed by mainstream Christianity as pardon ONLY. Romans 1:5 proves that it is also power or empowerment. Ellen White and Scripture say that this power is the Holy Spirit or the Divine Nature of Christ:

 

“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.

 

“There must be a power working from within, a new life from above, before man can be changed from sin to holiness. That power is Christ. His grace [the Spirit of Christ] alone can quicken the lifeless faculties of the soul, and attract it to God, to holiness.” (ST, May 28, 1902, par. 3).

 

Our Dispositions Unchanged

 

     If you would be a saint in heaven you must first be a saint on earth. The traits of character you cherish in life will not be changed by death or by the resurrection. You will come up from the grave with the same disposition you manifested in your home and in society. Jesus does not change the character at His coming. The work of transformation must be done now. Our daily lives are determining our destiny. Defects of character must be repented of and overcome through the grace of Christ, and a symmetrical character must be formed while in this probationary state, that we may be fitted for the mansions above.--13MR 82 (1891).  {LDE 295.1}

 

The Glory that the Father gave to Christ is given to us: “Jesus is waiting to breathe upon all his disciples, and give them the inspiration of his sanctifying spirit, and transfuse the vital influence from himself to his people . . . Christ is to live in his human agents, and work through their faculties, and act through their capabilities. Their will must be submitted to His will, they must act with His Spirit, that it may be no more they that live, but Christ that liveth in them. Jesus is seeking to impress upon them the thought that in giving His Holy Spirit He is giving to them the glory which the Father has given Him, that He and His people may be one in God.” Signs of the Times, October 3, 1892, par. 4.

 

15.     The Unpardonable Sin of the Trinity Doctrine, Rome’s Central Doctrine

Rome and her apostate daughters teach that the Holy Spirit was always a separate and distinct person from Christ. Ellen White teaches that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Nature life and soul of Christ, which He emptied Himself of and laid aside for us at His Incarnation, as the highest good, crowing gift that heaven can bestow. I’m boing to belabor this issue because it is so important, as you will quickly discern.

 

"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.

 

The Holy Spirit is a separate person from Christ’s humanity and independent thereof. Thereby, another person was added to the Godhead at Christ’s Incarnation. If there were three co-eternal persons to the Godhead before the Incarnation, then after the Incarnation there would be four persons to the Godhead! By teaching that there are three co-eternal persons to the Godhead, BEFORE THE INCARNATION, the Incarnation, the act that produced another person to the theretofore two person Godhead of the Father and the Son, is, in effect, eliminated. Thus, the Sanctuary/Atonement Sacrifice in heaven is rendered GONE, as though it never occurred! The Alpha heresy in the SDA church produced the same effect and only Ellen White discerned it:

 

 

Sanctuary Gone Atonement Gone -- "In a representation which passed before me, I saw a certain work being done by medical missionary workers. Our ministering brethren were looking on, watching what was being done, but they did not seem to understand. The foundation of our faith, which was established by so much prayer, such earnest searching of the Scriptures, was being taken down, pillar by pillar. Our faith was to have nothing to rest upon--the sanctuary was gone, the atonement was gone." E.G. White, The Upward Look, 152.

 

Dr. Kellogg’s theory on the Godhead as presented in his book Living Temple, taught that God’s Spirit is in everything (pantheism). If God’s Holy Spirit was already in man, Christ need not have made the heavenly Sanctuary Atonement—thus Kellogg’s pantheism theory rendered the Sanctuary/Atonement GONE. One person saw this heresy in the Alpha. One person has seen this heresy in the Omega. This is one of the prime reasons why God has sent another prophet to His people. This is MAJOR for it involves the most fundamental issue of Christianity, the Godhead, which Ellen White referred to as a pillar, landmark doctrine.

 

 

At His Incarnation, the Son’s Holy Spirit Divine Nature was laid aside as a gift to us. It then became the third person to the Godhead. Did the Holy Spirit exist before that act of Sanctuary and Atonement sacrifice in heaven? Yes, it existed in the person of the Son and the Father, for there is ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT:

 

Hbr 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 

 

The eternal spirit means ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT. God is a Spirit and there is only ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT. The Father and the Son shared the ONE eternal spirit until Jesus bequeathed His to us at His Incarnation for the purpose of overcoming sin.

 

Jhn 4:24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth. 

 

“Christ had stooped to take upon Himself man’s nature; He was to bear an infinite weight of woe as He should make His soul an offering for sin; yet angels desire that even in His humiliation the Son of the Highest might appear before men with a dignity and glory befitting His character.” E.G. White, The Great Controversy, pp. 313, 314.

 

The Glory that the Father gave to Christ is given to us: “Jesus is waiting to breathe upon all his disciples, and give them the inspiration of his sanctifying spirit, and transfuse the vital influence from himself to his people . . . Christ is to live in his human agents, and work through their faculties, and act through their capabilities. Their will must be submitted to His will, they must act with His Spirit, that it may be no more they that live, but Christ that liveth in them. Jesus is seeking to impress upon them the thought that in giving His Holy Spirit He is giving to them the glory which the Father has given Him, that He and His people may be one in God.” Signs of the Times, October 3, 1892, par. 4.

 

“Christ gives them the breath of His own Spirit, the life of His own Life.” Desire of Ages, p. 827, par. 3.  

 

“The Holy Spirit is the breath of life in the soul. The impartation of the Spirit is the impartation of the life of Christ. It imbues the receiver with the attributes of Christ.” Desire of Ages, p. 805.  

 

“They have one God and one Saviour; and one Spirit—the Spirit of Christ—is to bring unity into their ranks.” Testimonies, Vol. 9, p. 189.

 

“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.

 

Act 3:26  Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

 

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

 

1Pe 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. 

 

The Trinity Doctrine in all its teachings teaches that no such sacrifice on the part of the Son of Man ever took place in heaven. How? By teaching that there were three co-equal persons from eternity. There were only two persons to the Godhead before the Incarnation. Ellen White says that the Holy Spirit is the soul of the life of Christ. So the Holy Spirit was not a THIRD PERSON from eternity! Thus, the heavenly Sanctuary and Atonement Sacrifice performed from the foundation of the earth, extra to the cross sacrifice, is denied by the Trinity Doctrine’s teaching that there were always three eternal, co-equal persons. It was the Incarnation of Christ that produced another person to the Godhead—God come in the likeness of human flesh, the humanity of Christ, which was adopted into the heavenly Godhead. The “highest good, crowning sacrifice” that heaven could bestow upon man has been totally done away with by one false doctrine of Rome—THE TRINITY DOCTRINE, voted in by SDA’s at the 1980 World General Conference Session.

 

Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 

 

Whatever sacrifice occurs on earth must first occur in the heavenly Sanctuary, the pattern for the earthly.

 

How did such a heresy enter the SDA church? It entered in 1930, as the worst aspect of the Omega of Apostasy, through the efforts of one man primarily, and that man was Leroy Froom. He wanted the church to believe like the other churches. So he brought in the Trinity Doctrine without the church ever voting on it in a World General Conference Session. This situation existed until 1980 when it was voted on. Ellen White said that when one man or a small group of men make decisions for the church, the General Conference is no longer the Voice of God. That situation accrued with the entrance of the Trinity Doctrine in 1930.

 

This heresy speaks against the Holy Spirit and the Bible says that is unpardonable sin. Nothing could speak more against the Holy Spirit than to teach a doctrine that denies the “highest good, crowning gift” sacrifice that heaven could bestow. That heresy began the decline into other heresies which accrue as another false gospel being taught by the liberals in the church and they are in the majority. Corporate responsibility accrues upon all members of the church who KNOW of this heresy of heresies. This is why membership must be terminated or one is responsible.

 

The Trinity Doctrine, the epitome of the Omega of Apostasy, in whose trail other apostasies have followed, began the new movement Ellen White describes in Selected Messages, Bk. 1, pp. 204-5. This description of the omega says that pillar doctrines would be removed. Ellen White said that teachings involving the Godhead, the personality of God and Christ are pillar, landmark doctrines in the church. The Trinity Doctrine effectively removed a landmark pillar of the church as taught by Ellen White, regarding the “highest good, crowing sacrifice that heaven could bestow.”

 

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}

The Trinity Doctrine does away with the heavenly sacrifice involved with the Sanctuary and the Atonement. Thus, the Sanctuary and the Atonement are rendered—GONE, just as Ellen White predicted in the Alpha of Apostasy, only the Omega was to be far worse:

 

Sanctuary Gone Atonement Gone -- "In a representation which passed before me, I saw a certain work being done by medical missionary workers. Our ministering brethren were looking on, watching what was being done, but they did not seem to understand. The foundation of our faith, which was established by so much prayer, such earnest searching of the Scriptures, was being taken down, pillar by pillar. Our faith was to have nothing to rest upon--the sanctuary was gone, the atonement was gone." E.G. White, The Upward Look, 152.

 

How long was the omega to continue? The entire context of the following statement is the Alpha and Omega of Apostasy in the SDA church:

 

"One thing it is certain is soon to be realized, the great apostasy, which is developing and increasing and waxing stronger, and will continue to do so until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout. We are to hold fast the first principles of our denominated faith, and go forward from strength to increased faith. Ever we are to keep the faith that has been substantiated by the Holy Spirit of God from the earlier events of our experience until the present time. We need now larger breadth, and deeper, more earnest, unwavering faith in the leadings of the Holy Spirit. If we needed the manifest proof of the Holy Spirit's power to confirm truth in the beginning, after the passing of the time, we need to-day all the evidence in the confirmation of the truth, when souls are departing from the faith and giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. There must not be any languishing of soul now." (E.G. White, Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, p. 57).

 

16.     SDA leaders will NEVER AGAIN show the House of Jacob, God’s people, their sins:

How can there ever be a reformation of the church if the leaders, who are the ringleaders of the apostasy, will NEVER AGAIN show the House of Jacob its sins?

 

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.  

 

Dear heart, His Sanctuary and the House of Jacob do not refer to Babylon! They refer to modern-day spiritual Jerusalem or Israel, professing Seventh-day Adventists.

 

17.     That there is no difference between tares and open sinning thorny ground hearers and that both can dwell together till the harvest. See the following link:

18.     That ecumenical fraternity with Babylon via Association, Counsel/Council, Girding and Confederacy is not an abomination to God.

 

Isaiah 8:9-16, strictly forbids Association, Council/Counsel, Girding and/or Confederacy with Babylon or God’s enemies. We were to come out and stay out. The Midnight Cry of Matthew 25, which gave power to the Second Angel’s Message of 1844, called us out and we were to stay out. Ellen White said that to disregard this Midnight Cry lighted pathway which shone all along the path to heaven, means that it is impossible for all who do so to get back on the path to heaven again. This implies unpardonable sin.

 

"While praying at the family altar, the Holy Ghost fell on me, and I seemed to be rising higher and higher, far above the dark world. I turned to look for the Advent people in the world, but could not find them--when a voice said to me, 'Look again, and look a little higher.' At this I raised my eyes and saw a straight and narrow path cast up high above the world. On this path the Advent people were traveling to the City, which was at the farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the first end of the path, which an angel told me was the Midnight Cry. This light shone all along the path, and gave light for their feet so they might not stumble. And if they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus, who was just before them, leading them to the City, they were safe. But soon some grew weary, and they said the City was a great way of, and they expected to have entered it before. Then Jesus would encourage them by raising his glorious right arm, and from his arm came a glorious light which waved over the Advent band, and they shouted Hallelujah! Others rashly denied the light behind them, and said that it was not God that had led them out so far. The light behind them went out leaving their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and got their eyes off the mark and lost sight of Jesus, and fell off the path down in the dark and wicked world below. It was just as impossible for them to get on the path again and go to the City, as all the wicked world which God had rejected. They fell all the way along the path one after another, until we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus' coming....

By this time the 144,000 were all sealed and perfectly united. On their foreheads was written, God, New Jerusalem, and a glorious Star containing Jesus' new name." E.G. White, Word to the Little Flock, p. 14.

 

The church has spoken out of both sides of its mouth on the issue of its fraternity with Babylon’s ecumenical movement. On the one hand, it published an Adventist Review article in the latter 1980’s/early 1990’s on the Hungarian revolt of about 1500 church members there who protested the church’s involvement in the local ecumenical organization there, The Hungarian Council of Free Churches. The Review article said that the SDA church had been a member of that council for 30 years prior. Members who protested this membership were barred from their SDA churches in Hungary.

 

Around that very time, I called Dr. B.B. Beach who was in charge of ecumenical affairs for the church then, and asked him if the church was a member of any ecumenical organization. He denied any such membership.

 

So, I called the National Council of Churches in the U.S.A. and asked them about SDA membership and they said the church was a member and that it had paid annual dues of a sum exceeding $8,000. The church Treasurer, Butler (at that time), gave me the exact figure.

 

I sent to the World Council of Churches and obtained a publication entitled Directory Christian Churches (now out of print), which listed all member churches around the world. It listed SDA’s as MEMBERS in 5 countries of the world, and lesser participants in most other countries. The last page says that the WCC is in working relationship with the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. A working relationship is far more than “observer status,” which is usually all the church will confess to.

 

Here are links wherein the church admits to ecumenical involvement:

 

http://omega77.tripod.com/sdaecuinvolvement2.htm

http://omega77.tripod.com/sdaecunorway.htm

http://omega77.tripod.com/sdaecumenical1.htm

 

The SDA church ecumenical involvement goes far beyond what I have spoken of here. If God means what He says in Isaiah 8:9-13, the church will be broken in pieces for its ecumenical fraternity with Babylon, after being called out of Babylon. That is the only thrice stated option!

 

If Ellen White meant what she said in Word to the Little Flock, p. 14, it will now be IMPOSSIBLE for anyone who knows of the church’s involvement with Babylon, AFTER KNOWING THE TRUTH, to get back on the pathway to heaven.

 

If God meant what He says in Jeremiah 11:9-15 [KJV], the SDA church has committed unpardonable sin and then rejoiced (celebrated) it via the Celebration Movement, all the excuses proffered by SDA leaders notwithstanding!

 

19.     That there can be no separation from apostate thorns (open apostate sinners) before the time of the National Sunday Law.

 

·       Ellen White clearly stated that we were never to join any new movement, and the apostate SDA church is a new movement and has been since 1930 when it adopted the Roman Trinity Doctrine.

·       Ellen White said that the ancient prophets wrote more for us than the Jews. Read Isaiah 37:31, 32.

·       Read Ezekiel 5:1-3.

·       Read Sermons and Talks, Vol. 1, pp. 4-9, where Ellen White reapplies Matthew 22:1-10 to our day. There was a coming out from apostasy in that timeframe which included A.D. 27-70 and on.

·       Ellen White said that the destruction of Jerusalem was a prefigure, page 25, Great Controversy. A prefigure is a TYPE. In that type which involved A.D. 27-70, Jesus gathered out the faithful from the apostate church. That gathering out was the first act of His ministry, Desire of Ages, p. 232.

·       Ellen White implied that a desire to be like the other churches could involve 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}

·       Is the new movement SDA church, many decades later, acting a part similar to which the other churches act?

·       The only way one can escape corporate responsibility for the unpardonable apostasy sins of the church is withdrawal of membership in the omega of apostasy new movement masquerading as the Seventh-day Adventist church. Those who are in it for the benefits of a social club will not care about the apostasy, but any sincere among them best awaken to the serious implications if they want to be saved.

 

20.     That it would take another prophet to tell us when and if the SDA church should reach the point at which separation from the church would be an absolute duty:

 

Any prophet that would even suggest what I have related above, would be summarily dismissed as a false prophet. That is what I am termed at the following link:

 

http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/seventh-day-adventist/T5GUKPFR1A5IGLVDF

 

It is said that I don’t understand the three angel’s messages. What Eugene Schubert, the writer of the piece, does not understand is the following statement in which the National Reform Movement was the ecumenical movement of Ellen White’s day:

 

"The peculiar work of the third angel has not been seen in its importance. God meant that His people should be far in advance of the position which they occupy today. But now, when the time has come for them to spring into action, they have the preparation to make. When the National Reformers began to urge measures to restrict religious liberty, our leading men should have been alive to the situation and should have labored earnestly to counteract these efforts. It is not in the order of God that light has been kept from our people--the very present truth which they needed for this time. Not all our ministers who are giving the third angel's message really understand what constitutes that message. The National Reform movement has been regarded by some as of so little importance that they have not thought it necessary to give much attention to it and have even felt that in so doing they would be giving time to questions distinct from the third angel's message. May the Lord forgive our brethren for thus interpreting the very message for this time." {5T 714.2}

 

21.   Rejection of, and/or refusal to follow the leadings of their prophetess Ellen G. White. For example, the most abominable rejection of the Spirit of Prophecy is on the issue of the Godhead. Were Ellen White’s teaching heeded, the church could come to NO OTHER CONCLUSION than what I teach which is based on Ellen White’s statements interpreted so that nothing contradicts.

Ellen White said that there should be no General Conference President, but rather a committee of men. There is a committee, but there is also a president. There are many such counsels to the church that the church totally ignores.

Another issue is swapping pulpits with non-Adventists. Ellen White said that it is impossible to give the truth in other churches. Adventist churches have given their pulpits to Catholics and others of the Babylonian persuasion. Ellen White spoke against SDA pastors who want to be like the churches we came out of. These are just a few examples wherein the church does not meet with the conditions set forth by the Bible and Ellen G. White.

 

So when I teach concerning the apostasy of fraternizing with God’s enemies, I am teaching the three angels’ messages. If you agree with Eugene Schubert that all of the above is only minor errors of the church, then by all means, disregard what I have warned about.

 

May God awaken His people,
