Counterpart Statement – Full Article 


November 7, 1882 Christian Character 


By Mrs. E. G. White  


     The word of God not only sets forth the great principles of truth and duty which should govern our lives, but it presents also, for our encouragement, the history of many who have exemplified these principles. Men "subject to like passions as we are," have fought with temptation, and conquered in the strength of an Almighty Helper. Under difficulties greater than we are called to meet, men have been true to duty and to God. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 1}


     Except the one perfect Pattern, there is not described in the sacred pages a single character more worthy of emulation than that of the prophet Daniel. Exposed in youth to all the allurements of a royal court, he became a man of unbending integrity and fervent devotion to God. He was subjected to the fierce temptations of Satan, yet his character was not vacillating, nor his course changeable. He was firm where many would be yielding; he was true where they would be false; he was strong where they would be weak. Daniel was a lofty cedar of Lebanon. The angel of the Lord addressed this faithful prophet, "O man greatly beloved, thy prayer is heard." Would that the faith, integrity, and devotion of the prophet Daniel might live in the hearts of God's people of today. Never were these noble qualities more needed in the world than now. Never was there greater need of men who will stand firmly and fearlessly for God and the right. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 2}


     In the records of those who have done and suffered for the name of Jesus, there is no name that shines with a brighter or purer luster than the name of Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles. The love of Jesus, glowing in his heart, made him self-forgetful, self-denying. He had seen the risen Christ, and the Saviour's image was impressed upon his soul, and shone forth in his life. With faith, courage, and fortitude, that would not be daunted by danger or stayed by obstacles, he pressed his way from land to land to spread the knowledge of the cross. When summoned to stand before the judgment-seat of Nero, and forsaken by his brethren, he was at first thought almost dismayed. Then he gathered courage, as he looked upward to the Source of strength. Though human help forsook him, he declares, "The Lord stood by me, and strengthened me." He placed his hand in the hand of Jesus, and fearlessly went forward to a martyr's death. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 3}


     Such noble characters have been; such noble characters will be. None can hide them; none need misinterpret them. They are living epistles, known and read of all men, By the beauty of true goodness shining forth in the life of these chosen men, others were charmed, and were filled with a desire to imitate them. All who seek to reach the Bible standard will stimulate others also to press forward to higher attainments. One whom God is teaching will animate others by his ardent, active efforts for the honor of Christ, and his undying love for souls. In another, a Christ-like meekness and gentleness of spirit will be most apparent. Another will influence many by his fervent charity, his brotherly kindness and Christian courtesy. Still another will manifest such humility and brokenness of heart as will lead the proud and stubborn to self-abasement. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 4}


     Are the professed followers of Christ thus exemplifying the principles of their faith? Where are the deep, living, holy experiences which men of God were wont to recount? Has the standard of Christianity been lowered to suit the present backslidden condition of God's professed people? No; that standard remains just where God placed it. Holy men of ages past were required to give up all for Christ, to cherish his spirit, and to imitate his example. Nothing less than this will he accept now: {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 5}


     The Christian will begin and end the day with God. His speech will not be frivolous or aimless. He does not indulge in idle jesting or malicious gossip. The peace of God rules in his heart. The power of divine grace strengthens every noble purpose, softens every harsh trait. In his life and character is seen that firm, undaunted principle with which worldliness dares not tamper. Such men are recognized by the world as followers of Christ. They have learned of him. The Sun of Righteousness shines into the heart, and lights up the countenance. Every faculty is strengthened, developed, by the influence of divine grace. Such Christians have an experience that is of some value. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 6}


     It is the absence of personal religion, of a daily, living experience in the things of God, that creates such coldness and stupor in the church. We have enjoyed great light and many privileges. Shall we turn away from all these blessings, and sacrifice the peculiar, holy character which should distinguish us as children of God? If we thus slight the mercy of God, the judgments denounced against Capernaum will surely fall upon us. Our punishment will be heavier than if we had not enjoyed so great light. Thus the warnings, reproofs, and counsels, which, accepted and obeyed, would bring us untold blessings, become a curse when they are rejected. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 7}


     The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants, "Pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them; neither make intercession to me; for I will not hear thee." [Jer. 7:16 and 11:14 quoted]. 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." {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 8}


Ron’s Commentary: Jeremiah and Ezekiel agree that every one from the least to the greatest is included in “my people.” They are speaking of Jerusalem, and the only end-time counterpart to the Jews, Jerusalem, is the SDA church, for only she claims to be the “chosen” of God and commandment-keepers as did ancient Israel. Here is Ezekiel’s pronouncement:


Eze 22:30  And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.


Ellen White says in the following statement that we should pray for the church. What is the resolution to this “apparent contradiction?” I asked the Lord for the resolution and He showed me that Ellen White meant that we should NOT pray for those in the church who have been warned and rejected that warning, but rather for those who have become members of the church without knowledge of its apostasy. I was shown that the Holy Spirit will press upon the sincere and that they will respond WHEN THEY ARE SHOWN THE ABOMINATIONS OF APOSTASY THAT THE CHURCH HAS COMMITTED AND FOR WHICH WE ARE TO SIGH AND CRY.


I was shown that those who believe that the church is not in apostasy cannot sigh and cry for the abominations for that reason. They see nothing but mere faults and defects such as we all have. They cannot see nor discern the abominations for which we are to sigh and cry. I was shown that is because they have not heeded the Laodicean message and do not possess the eyesalve of spiritual discernment, because they have chosen this course:

"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?"


They love peace and safety and prefer the adulation of one another more than the counsel of truth.  

"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. 

Here we have reference to "...when the danger and depression of the church are greatest..." This can only refer to the SDA church, because it is she who will experience such danger and depression. We find a little company (remnant) standing in the light and they are not MEMBERS, because the MEMBERS are doing after the manner of the world, and if the little company were MEMBERS of the church, they would be doing after the manner of the world also! Come, let us reason together. We were given the ability and license to so reason. End comments by Ron. 

     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." {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 9} 


Ron’s Commentary: The apostles do not declare that this state of this will MAYBE find its counterpart in the last days. They declare that this state of thing WILL FIND IT COUNTERPART IN THE LAST DAYS. This counterpart is directly related to the prefigure statement by Ellen White, in The Great Controversy, p. 25, wherein she says that the destruction of Jerusalem, A.D. 70, was a prefigure symbol of the destruction of the world at the end time, BEGINNING AT HIS SANCTUARY, Jerusalem, the House of Jacob, those who have been blessed with great light, to wit: 

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. 

The prefigure of A.D. 70, involved a formally organized denomination, the apostate Jewish Temple, spiritual Jerusalem. The antitypical LITERAL fulfillment of that prefigure, must also involve a literal, formally organized Temple, Sanctuary, spiritual Jerusalem church, the House of Jacob, those who have been blessed with great light. That is what Ezekiel 9 speaks to. Lest you have any doubt that it will involve the SDA church militant rather than mere fallen individuals here and there, notice the following. 

Ellen White prophesied it all: 

"In the very courts of the temple [the church obviously], scenes will be enacted that few realize. God's people will be proved and tested, that He may discern 'between him that serveth God and him that serveth Him not.' Vengeance will be executed against those who sit in the gate, deciding what the people should have and what they should not have. These take away the key of knowledge. They refuse to enter in themselves, and those who would enter in they hinder. These bear not the seal of the living God. All who now occupy responsible positions should be solemnly and terribly afraid lest in this time they shall be found as unfaithful stewards." E.G. White, Manuscript 15, 1886, Paulson Collection, p. 55.


This is hugely important and teaching. Take special notice of these words:

1.   In the very courts of the temple scenes will be enacted that few realize. (The church is involved, not just individuals).

2.   God's wrath in vengeance will be executed IN THE VERY COURTS OF THE TEMPLE, against those who sit in the gate at Washington, deciding what you and I should have and what we should not have. God gave it to Ellen White FOR ALL OF US!

3.   What they ellipse is so important that she says they take away the KEY OF KNOWLEDGE.

4.   They refuse to enter the straight way and hinder those who do--the true Reformers.

5.   They will never bear the seal of God. This shown that those who do not receive the seal of Ezekiel 9 will be slaughter in the very courts of the Temple, and not just some who have LEFT the Temple.

6.   It proves that God's vengeance will be executed at His Sanctuary, like 5T 211 says.


Is it all a literal slaughter of men, maidens and little children? I ask you: Was it a literal slaughter of men maidens and little children in the prefigure of A.D. 70? Did Ellen White say that it would be literal when she said prefigure, and the following statement?:

"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. 

Like the proud Jews anciently, the modern day New Movement apostate professing Seventh-day Adventist church, cannot believe that such a thing will occur within her borders. Her leaders have either spurned and failed to emphasize the deep truths of the Laodicean message so long, that they have become bereft of spiritual discernment to see the degree of abomination of the apostasy they commit, and the members, the sheep, rising no higher than their leaders, are in the same plight. 

Notice this statement:

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.

The spiritual discernment of the dumb-dog watchmen (Isaiah 56:10-12 and Testimonies, Vol. 5, 211, is so dimmed by the apostasy, that they look on, watching what was being done but they don’t understand that what they have done removes even THE SANCTUARY AND THE ATONEMENT! That, my friend, is just how blind they are! I will expand more on the above statement in another forthcoming document. End Ron’s Comment.


     The carnal mind is enmity against God. Not one of us can love and keep his commandments, only as we deny self, and take upon ourselves the yoke of Christ. Divine truth has never been in harmony with the traditions and customs of the world; it has never conformed to their opinions. Christ himself received not honor from men. He was meek and lowly of heart, and made himself of no reputation. His simple dress and unpretending manners were in so marked contrast to the pomposity, self-conceit, and vain display of the Pharisees, that they would not accept him. All witnessed the manifestation of divine power, but few saw in Christ, amid his sufferings and humiliation, the Saviour of the world. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 10}


     At the present day a form of godliness is popular, even in the world. A profession of Christianity costs little. But those who follow Jesus must walk in the same path of self-denial and cross-bearing which the Master trod. They may be lightly esteemed by the world, but they are honored of God. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 11}


     No stronger delusion can possess the human mind than that which makes men believe they are on the right foundation, and that God accepts their works, when they are sinning against him. When placed in the furnace fire to be tried by the great Refiner, much that has been esteemed fine gold will be consumed as dross. Can Christ say of his professed followers, These are my peculiar people; I gave myself for them, to redeem them from all iniquity, that they should show forth my praise, who have called them out of darkness into my marvelous light. Would not the Lord say, rather, How is the beautiful city become a harlot, and my Father's house a place of merchandise. Because of your unbelief, I cannot do many mighty works among you. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 12}


Ron’s Commentary: Ellen White is speaking of SDAs! They are supposed to be the peculiar, called out, holy people who left the fallen churches in 1844. End comment.


     We are not to call sin righteousness, or righteousness sin. While we should ever manifest pity and compassion for the erring, we should be governed by sanctified judgment and the fear of God. In their undue sympathy for the sinner, many are learning to palliate sin. The most hardened criminals in our land find a host of sympathizers. Special attention is shown them, simply because their crimes have brought them into disrepute, and exposed them to the penalty of the law. It is considered a virtue to throw the mantle of charity over sins that are misleading and corrupting thousands. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 13}


     The same spirit is coming into the church. However guilty a wrong-doer may be, however lamentable the results of his course, he will find sympathizers. When he is reproved, there are unconsecrated ones who stand ready to sustain him. By their unwise sympathy, they lead him to look upon himself as abused, and thus they effectually bar his way to repentance and reform. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 14}


     The approval of men--even of professed Christians--is no evidence of the favor of God. The Christian experience of thousands is gauged by the standard of those who profess to love the truth and to be servants of Christ, but who serve Satan. In their blindness and self-complacency, many are saying, " I am rich and increased with goods, and have need of nothing," when Christ declares that they are poor and miserable, blind and naked. To such he addresses the solemn admonition, "I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see." {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 15}


     Every one who shall at last enter the kingdom of God will be tested. It will be manifest whether we desire to know and do the will of God, or merely to please ourselves. When called to give up all for Christ, who will stand the test? Many have been guided by their own understanding, and have indulged the desires of their own heart. The treasures of divine grace and love do not overbalance the inducements and attractions of the world. They choose self-gratification rather than Christ and his grace at the price of self-denial and self-consecration. {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 16}


     The cause of God today calls for men,--men in understanding and Christian experience,--men who are true to God and to the interests of his work. My brethren and sisters in the truth, I know the dangers which surround you. Search the Scriptures, examine your own hearts, meditate, pray, till you realize, by vivid conviction, your true state, till you see the peril which threatens you. Never rest till you know beyond all controversy that you have been transformed by the spirit of Christ; till you have clear evidence that you have been born again. Never rest till you know that Christ abideth in you. It will be vain for you to hope to meet the approval of God, until you come up to the Bible standard.
E.G. White, {RH, November 7, 1882 par. 17}


Here is another similar statement from the Review and Herald, August 1, 1893: "Shall the Lord be compelled to say, `Pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to Me: for I will not hear thee' [Jeremiah 7:16]? `Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain....Wilt thou not from this time cry unto Me, My Father, thou art the guide of my youth' [Jeremiah 3:3-4]?...

We are to be judged by the light that has been given us, (159) and we can find no excuse by which to extenuate our course." Review and Herald, Vol. 3, p 69-70 (August 1, 1893). (Brackets by Ellen White)


"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.


1.   The Celebration Movement was thought to be a great reformation. General Conference President Robert S. Folkenberg called it the moving of the Holy Spirit.

2.   There are books of a new order teaching a New Theology false gospel.

3.   SDA leaders have signed a secret agreement with Babylon to tone down the Sabbath and calling Rome the Beast.

4.   Neal C. Wilson, when GC President, told a Federal Court in San Francisco California, that the church no longer viewed Rome as the beast power. That was a betrayal of the three angel's messages that has never been repented of. The entire membership is corporately responsible for that betrayal.

5.   Ellen White indicted the leaders in Testimonies, Vol. 5, 211, with UNBELIEF, Peace and Safety, and NEVER AGAIN showing the House of Jacob its sins. That is OMEGA APOSTASY, as well.

6.   The Trinity Doctrine has to do with the personality of God. Ellen White said that the personality of God would be involved in the Omega of Apostasy.

7.   The church has returned to the iniquities of its forefathers, Babylon, by adopting its gospel and trinity doctrine. Then it rejoiced (celebrated), and the Holy Flesh (God) departed, Jeremiah 11:9-15.

8.   The Alpha involved SDA Medical Personnel. Loma Linda has taught New Age Seminars that teach looking within instead of to Christ. The idea is that God is in everyone. This is Pantheism. This list is not exhaustive by far! 

9.   These are just some of the reasons Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled again BEGINNING AT HIS SANCTUARY, the SDA church, those who have been privileged with great light, 5T 211.


Ellen White said that we do not know the worst abominations that really anger God, to wit:


     “The abominations for which the faithful ones were sighing and crying were all that could be discerned by finite eyes, but by far the worst sins, those which provoked the jealousy of the pure and holy God, were unrevealed. The great Searcher of hearts knoweth every sin committed in secret by the workers of iniquity. These persons come to feel secure in their deceptions and, because of His long-suffering, say that the Lord seeth not, and then act as though He had forsaken the earth. But He will detect their hypocrisy and will open before others those sins which they were so careful to hide.” {5T 211.3}


God bless all,
