The following article published by the Adventist News Network, is flat out implying that one is lost if he/she is not a member of the professing, SDA church organization. Notice this quote from the following link:

"The numbers game is not about numbers. It's about people -- souls that are lost twice. If these souls had not been lost, we would have a membership of 24 to 25 million."

It is not honest for any church denomination to say that one must be a member of their denomination in order to be saved. That used to be a very Catholic claim! However, even the Catholic church no longer believes that lie.

Ellen White clearly stated that no denomination/name has any power to save and she prophesied the ultimate fall of the professing SDA church militant in the statements below:

 

"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.

 

Is the professing SDA church a denomination? Does it keep the commandments of God when for decades now it has instructed Russian parents to send their children to school on Sabbath?

 

"The church is in the Laodicean condition. The presence of God in not in her midst." Notebook Leaflets, p. 99.

 

The church is in the Laodicean state. The presence of God is not in her midst.”--NL 99 (1898). Latter Day Events, p. 49.

 

"The state of the Church represented by the foolish virgins, is also spoken of as the Laodicean state." E. G. White,  Review and Herald Articles,  Vol. 2, 420, 8/19/1890. 

 

"To the end of time, the presence of the Spirit is to abide with the true church." E.G. White, Acts of the Apostles, p. 55.

 

Ellen White clearly states that the Laodicean state is the foolish virgins. Foolish virgins are not saved. SDA leaders say any other church than Laodicea would be an eighth church. This is a utopian foolish virgin conclusion. Ellen White said that all the messages to the seven churches of Revelation 2 and 3 apply to the end of time. All who are saved must leave the Laodicean state to return to their first love experience.

 

The SDA church that professes to be organized according to God’s plan, was disorganized from that position when it refused the plan of organization advocated by Ellen G. White and the minority committee in 1901.

 

If you think the church is now organized under the plan implemented by the pioneers and the minority committee of which Ellen White was a member in 1901, pray and study over the following manuscript: http://omega77.tripod.com/churchorgbauer.htm

 

In the following statement, the only people who qualify as a “counterpart” (parallel) to the Jews is professing Seventh-day Adventists, because both claim/claimed to be a chosen, remnant, commandment-keeping people, modern-day spiritual Jerusalem.

 

COUNTERPART: "The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants, 'Pray not thou for this people [Jer. 7:16 and 11:9-15], 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.

 

In Jeremiah 11:9-15, it describes what ancient Israel did to commit unpardonable sin so that God instructed Jeremiah not to pray for the Jews. Is it possible that even though God gave apostate Israel 490 years to put away sin (which ended in A.D. 34), that they committed unpardonable sin many generations prior? And what did they do to commit unpardonable sin? They conspired with God’s enemies. They associated with them and then conspired/confederated with them. Now read Isaiah 8:9-12, to find that such association/confederation/council with God’s enemies is unpardonable sin, because the only option stated is “broken in pieces,” stated three times because of the seriousness of this type of apostasy against God.

 

I submit to you that SDA’s conspired to confederate with Babylon’s (Satan’s) World Council of Churches, its various National Councils, and its localized Ministerial Associations. The latest updated roster of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A., lists Seventh-day Adventists as a MEMBER.

 

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

 

And the Adventist Review  has admitted to being a MEMBER of the Hungarian Council of Free Churches since the early 1960’s. It is impossible to call folk out of Babylon when you are a MEMBER of its highest councils yourself! That Babylonian council has convinced the SDA church to tone down its rhetoric on the Sabbath issue. That Babylonian council was instrumental in getting the SDA church to adopt the anti-christ Trinity Doctrine. If you don’t know how and why the Trinity Doctrine, originated by Rome, is antichrist, search those words: “trinity doctrine,” on my Website. That council has convinced the SDA church to fellowship in joint Easter Sunrise services with Babylon. That council has convinced the SDA church to share its pulpits, EVEN AT ITS WORLD SESSIONS, with Babylonian priests and prelates. That world session of the General Conference was/is supposed to be the voice of God to the people.

 

In Ezekiel 9, we are counselled to sigh and cry for all such abominations that are committed by THE MODERN-DAY JERUSALEM 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 the man in linen, are those "that sigh and cry for all the abominations that are done" in the church. Their love for purity and the honor and glory of God is such, and they have so clear a view of the exceeding sinfulness of sin, that they are represented as being in an agony, even sighing and crying.” {RH, June 8, 1886 par. 2}

 

Ezekiel 9 to be literally fulfilled beginning “at His Sanctuary, His church, those who have been privileged with great light:”

 

"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.

 

To the very letter

 

“The Lord reads the heart as an open book. The men who are not connected with God have done many things after the imagination of their own evil hearts. The Lord declares concerning them, "They have turned unto Me their back, and not the face, though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them; yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction." We are amid the perils of the last days, the time will soon come when the prophecy of Ezekiel 9 will be fulfilled; that prophecy should be carefully studied, for it will be fulfilled to the very letter. Study also the tenth chapter which represents the hand of God as at work to bring perfect method and harmonious working into all the operations of his prepared instrumentalities. The eleventh and twelfth chapters also should receive critical, thoughtful attention. Let these prophecies be studied on your knees before God; unless you take up the stumbling-blocks which by your own perverse spirit you have laid in the way of many who have been connected with you, God will turn His face utterly from you and your associates.”{1888 1303.1}

 

Ellen White’s prophecy of the final outcome of the professing SDA church militant:

 

"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].

 

The reason Ezekiel 9 is literally fulfilled beginning at His church, His Sanctuary, the professing SDA organization, is because of its abominations for which we are to sigh and cry and because it refuses to comply with the conditions in God’s Word and as laid out by its prophetess Ellen G. White.

 

If you believe an apostate organization (denomination) which has formed an apostate new movement, new organization that has “removed God,” and teaches antichrist positions on the human nature of Christ and the Godhead via the Trinity Doctrine, is God’s final remnant, you are very deceived.

 

Every specification of the following statement has been fulfilled as prophesied by Ellen White and God’s Word per Ezekiel chapters 5 and 8. These chapters give the reasons as to why Ezekiel 9 is literally fulfilled beginning at that church, that Sanctuary, professing modern-day Jerusalem:

 

"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.

 

Believe Themselves to be ALL RIGHT, When They are ALL WRONG

 

“What greater deception can come upon human minds than a confidence that they are right, when they are all wrong? The message of the True Witness finds the people of God in a sad deception, yet honest in that deception. They know not that their condition is deplorable in the sight of God. While those addressed are flattering themselves that they are in an exalted spiritual condition, the message of the True Witness breaks their security by the startling denunciation of their true situation of spiritual blindness, poverty, and wretchedness. The testimony, so cutting and severe, cannot be a mistake; for it is the True Witness who speaks, and his testimony must be correct.” {RH, September 16, 1873 par. 5}

 

Laodicea no Better Than the Other Fallen Churches

 

Becomes lukewarm--becomes Laodicean "If the church of God becomes LUKEWARM [LAODICEAN] it does not stand in favor with God any more than do the churches that are represented as having fallen and become the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Those who have had opportunities to hear and receive the truth, and who have united with the Seventh-day Adventist church, calling themselves the commandment keeping people of God, and yet possess no more vitality and consecration to God than do the nominal churches, will receive of the plagues of God just as verily as the churches who oppose the law of God." E.G. White, Letter 35, 1898.

 

·       Did the church become Laodicean in 1852, even before it was organized in 1863? Yes!

·       Even if the church was only lukewarm, it would be no better than Babylon says the above statement!

·       But what if the church exceeded the lukewarm condition to become cold apostate? Is that worse than Babylon, after knowing the truth?

·       Did you know that the professing SDA new movement church denies that it is in apostasy? Did you know that if this was true, you would have no abominations to sigh and cry about? So in effect, the SDA new movement denomination organization is teaching you not to sigh and cry for the abominations—in violation of Ezekiel 9:4, to wit: “And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.”

·       Did you know that SDA leaders admit that there is apostasy “IN” the church, but say the church leaders and the church ARE NOT in apostasy? Either way, the church would be/is corporately responsible for the apostasy “OF” and/or “IN” the church, to wit:

 

"There are fearful woes for those who preach the truth, but are not sanctified by it, and also for those who consent to receive and maintain the unsanctified to minister to them in word and doctrine." Testimonies, vol. 1, p 261-62. "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.

 

·       Open sin is supposed to be removed from the church by the leaders, but they have become the ring leaders of the open sin apostasy:

 

"Christ has plainly taught that those who persist in open sin must be separated from the church..."  Christ's Object Lessons, 71.

 

“The names of those who sin and refuse to repent should not be retained on the church books, lest the saints be held accountable for their evil deeds. Those who pursue a course of transgression should be visited and labored with, and if they then refuse to repent, they should be separated from church fellowship, in accordance with the rules laid down in the Word of God.” {11MR 208.3} 

 

Open sinners are supposed to be reformed or removed if they will not change. If this does not accrue, all the members are corporately responsible for their sins and this includes the apostasy the leaders introduce to the church.

 

So church leaders are responsible for the apostasy “in” the church, as well as for the apostasy they have been the ring-leaders of, such as joining the church to Babylon’s councils, associations and confederacies, and adopting Rome’s antichrist Trinity Doctrine. The antichrist element has to do with how the three persons to the Godhead accrued, rather than the fact that there are indeed three persons.

 

·       In Ezekiel 8, is says about 25 men turn their backs to the Temple and worship the Sun. Did you know that there is an Executive Committee at SDA Headquarters consisting of about 25 men, and that Ellen White says they will tell the members of the church to keep Sunday? Notice: 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. (Ellen G. White, Review and Herald, March 18, 1884).

·       In order for Ezekiel 9 to be literally fulfilled, all the reasons for its occurrence from Ezekiel chapter 1 to 22 will occur as well.

·       Did Ellen White say the SDA church militant was worse than Babylon?

 

"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.

 

In Ezekiel, chapter 5, God indicts “Jerusalem” as being worse than any other nation. Is it worse for professing SDA’s to forsake truth after knowing it, than for Babylonians to violate truth without knowing it, which is the case of many sincere members of Babylonian fallen churches? Me thinks the answer may be empirically discerned.

 

Ask your pastor to refute this document and I will publish his refutation on my Website. Fair enough? But don’t hold your breath as to whether or not he will even try to do this! Why? For this reasons:

 

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

 

Do you believe God? Do you? Really? Or will you continue to err and be led of them who will destroy you? Your response to this question will have eternal consequences. Must you be a MEMBER of an apostate new movement, new organization, that has removed God (1SM 205) in order to be saved? Your leaders who cause you to err and be destroyed, say YES!
