I am often asked, "Believing as you do, why are you a Seventh-day Adventist?" I was born an SDA. I believe in all of the following distinctives of the TRUE AND FAITHFUL Seventh-day Adventists, and believe they will continue until Christ comes. I was baptized an SDA when I was old enough to understand and agree with the following teachings:

 

1)   I believe that the Historic SDA Church believed and taught the true gospel and the Everlasting Gospel, which is a proper response to the gospel. I believe in the three angel's messages that call all out of the World, Mother Rome, and her daughters, who cannot be distinguished from the world, Early Writings, 273. I believe that call commenced in 1844, and that it will be repeated in the Loud Cry.

 

2)   I believe that the call to the fallen churches in 1844, was the three angel's messages, as well as the Midnight Cry. I believe that TRUE ADVENTISTS will ever heed these messages, and will not violate them to be rejoined in ANY WAY to the fallen churches. I believe that these messages were a God-given Commission to the SDA Church. I believe that the SDA church could and has violated this great COMMISSION. I believe that when any church violates such a God-given Commission that God will choose others. I believe that the German SDA church, as part of the ONCE BODY OF CHRIST renounced this commission by saying that the SDA church no longer believed that Rome and her daughters were Babylon! I believe that the entire SDA Church, AS A BODY, is corporately responsible for this traitorship to the church's Commission to give the Everlasting Gospel comprised of the three angel's messages, to the world. I see every Biblical connection to ecumenical fraternity as such constitutes violation of the Church's very Commission to give the three angel's messages to the world.

 

3) I believe in the historic view of the Sanctuary Message, which has now been denied by most of the headquarters’ leadership. What does this mean? That the rest of the leadership is also CORPORATELY RESPONSIBLE for retaining those who deny this truth.

 

4) I believe in the historic view of the Pre-Investigative Judgment. I believe that this doctrine has been denied by most of headquarters’ leadership. I believe that many practicing ministers deny this truth. What does this mean? This means that the entire church is corporately responsible for retaining such ministers, and/or headuarters' leaders.

 

5) I believe that the Sabbath will be a SIGN and a TEST of God's faithful remnant at the end of all things.

 

6) I believe in the historic SDA teaching that Christ took our fallen nature and crucified every associated sin that could be associated with that nature. I believe that He could not have made an Atonement for sin had He not taken that nature. Thus the Atonement would be GONE. I believe that the ATONEMENT IS GONE in the professing SDA church TODAY, because it denies this post-Adamic human nature of Christ. Ellen White saw the Sanctuary GONE. She saw the 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 [ISA. 56:11 CANNOT 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.... Do you wonder that I have something to say, when I see the pillars of our faith beginning to be moved? Seductive theories are being taught in such a way that we shall not recognize them unless we have clear spiritual discernment." E.G. White, The Upward Look, 152.

 

Ellen White met the Alpha of Apostasy, but she said that "nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the new movement [OMEGA], Selected Messages, vol. 2, 205.

 

If a new movement has come in "AMONG US," as she stated ibid., 204, and that it would do all she stated on pages 204-5, even to the point of "...God being removed," and that nothing would be allowed to stand in its way," then the writing on the wall is BOLD AND CLEAR FOR SOME OF US. If God has been REMOVED, then who is the leader if there are only two masters?

 

I sincerely believe Ellen White and history, that God will continue to choose others if ANY CHURCH, not matter how high and sacred its calling, should forsake one or any of the above pillars of the faith:

 

"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 tough he needed any thing' (Acts 17:25). E. G. White, The Upward Look, 131.

 

I believe that all of the so-called "watchmen" within the church structure teach contrary to the above statement by Ellen White, to teach that the organization will go through no matter what it does. They teach that Ellen White never cited any conditions the violation of which would require another coming out or separation. I believe that the above statement is clear to prove such apostates wrong.

 

I believe Ellen White's Selected Messages, vol. 1, 204-5, statement to prove them wrong. I believe that Ellen White did call away from the church in the Alpha, when she said to take the youth as far as possible away from the church. I believe that the Alpha was squelched by Ellen White. I believe Ellen White’s statement (1SM 205) that NOTHING, NOBODY will stand in the way or SQUELCH the New Movement--New Organization Omega of Apostasy. I believe this is why Ezekiel 5:3 says there will be another coming out of a remnant before the entire church, the remaining three-thirds (making a whole) in Ezekiel 5:1-3, is destroyed. I believe this is another take on Ezekiel 9.

 

I believe all this is why Ezekiel 22:17-31, says that the dross (tares) are gathered into the midst of Jerusalem, the church, and melted and burned. I believe all this is why Ezekiel 5:14, says that the SDA church, Jerusalem, will be made an example of and a spectacle to the entire world, when the judgment of God begins at her sanctuaries, and then spreads to the other fallen churches, and then finally destroys the world as Jerusalem, after it has heard the warning of the Everlasting Gospel and rejected it.

 

I believe that every part and particle of the above is TRUE, HISTORIC, SDA and BIBLICAL TEACHING. Ellen White fully endorsed Ezekiel chapters five and nine, when she said that Ezekiel 9 would be  LITERALLY FULFILLED AGAIN. This is why I am a Seventh-day Adventist. A True and Faithful Seventh-day Adventist.

 

Sincerely in the Lord Jesus Christ,
