This is a response I made to John Scotram on Adventist-fm yahoo group. John said that his name is not really John Scotram. Thus the term alias before his name in the heading.

John,

 

I have a few comments:

1.    You alluded in your last spewing forth of venomous posts a few weeks ago that I expected folk to come out of the apostate church and into my arms. That is an abominable false charge. For years I have advocated that folk form home churches just as they did from A.D. 34-66 when all true Christians fled to the mountains of Pella.

2.    You certainly participated and contributed to every negative postulation that you have expressed high disdain for.

3.    You showed a great deal of impatience with any questioning of your clock. That is not a good sign. Your lack of patience and your unChristlike spirit is sure evidence that it is not the Holy Spirit that is leading out in your prediction of the time of Christ's coming. God does not want folk jumping on the bandwagon just because they are motivated by any date for His return. He wants them to be motivated by faith and love for Him without time excitement.

4.    You say: "This would mean that the first living creature would also point to two dates: 1846 and 2014 as shown on the image below. The black line represents the closing of the door of grace in 2012, while the white line, in fact, shows 2014 and coincides with the line of the first living creature respectively the white horse." Question: What would be the purpose of extending a period of two years after the close of the door of grace or probation?

5.    I prophesied to you personally the first time I saw your time clock that you would continue to move the dates forward. You are "tacking into the wind" (changing course with the wind like a sail boat captain) like the Jehovah witnesses do. Maybe if you keep moving the dates forward enough times you will come close to the final time line sometime. At first it was about five months after 2012. Now it is 2014. What will the next date be? Ellen White said that the reason such prognostications should not be made is because when the dates come and go, then the people are found to be in a worsened spiritual state of unbelief and discouragement than they were before!

6.    You state: "So we know now already the year of Jesus' second coming by reading the Orion Clock: 2014."

7.    You thus violate Ellen White's counsel to not say Jesus will come in five, ten or twenty years or words to that affect. God will not honor your disobedience to Ellen White's (The Holy Spirit's) counsel, to wit: "Be assured that God gives no one authority to say that Christ delays His coming five years, ten years, or twenty years. "Be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh" [Matt. 24:44]. This is our message, the very message that the three angels flying in the midst of heaven are proclaiming. The work to be done now is that of sounding this last message of mercy to a fallen world. A new life is coming from heaven and taking possession of all God's people.Ē {17MR 17.2}

8.    A great danger in postulating the date of Christís coming a number of years away is that some folk will be careless of their readiness, thinking that they will jump on the bandwagon at the last minute.

9.    Another great danger is that we can die at any time so we have to be ready at all times. Some who feel invulnerable, especially the youth who often feel that sentiment, might be tempted to postpone their readiness if they know that Christís coming is not until years in the future when no timeline can begin to be more definite until the legislation of the National Sunday Law.

 

All of the above support's Ellen White's statement that the day and hour is not announced until just before His coming and not before the Loud Cry as you maintain. I am not going to engage extended exchange with you, but just wanted to register this protest of your views.

 

Ron
