My December 06, 2007 Vision on Matthew 22

Dear Reader,

I was up most of the night writing my rebuttal to Laval Picard on Matthew 22. I went back to bed at 6 a.m. only to be given a vision on Matthew 22 that I will now relate.

The Lord showed me that the keys to the issue concerning the two repeated calls of Matthew 22 are:

·      The prefigure of what occurred in the two calls involving Christ and His disciples, are absolutely crucial and are just that, a type that must be followed. Ellen White called all the events of Chapter 1, The Great Controversy, a prefigure (p. 25) of what will occur at the end-time, beginning at His Sanctuary, the apostate SDA church.

·      Both calls are Midnight Cry calls relative to Matthew 25:6[1]

·      Both calls involve a CALL OUT message. Both calls made by Christ and His disciples were CALL OUT messages.

·      In both calls the voice of God and the voice of the bride give the message. I will elucidate more on that fact in this document of my vision.

·      John the Baptist prepared a bride for Christ and He and that bride gave the two calls of Matthew 22 to the Jews. Desire of Ages, p. 179.

·      In Isaiah 62, Zion, the bride of Christ who is married, verse 5, gives a call in verse 11 that is a paraphrase of the Midnight Cry of Matthew 25:6[2]

·      In the end-time setting, the two calls are made: one in 1844 and the second at the final Loud Cry, and that the final loud cry goes to SDA’s first. Then the third call of Matthew 22 goes to the world. The Lord showed me that this sequence follows Matthew 22 EXACTLY, and that Laval’s presentation does not, for he makes the 1888 message one of the calls and that was not a Midnight Cry call out message, as were both calls that Christ and His disciples made.  Thus, the Lord corrected me on my previous suggestion that one of the calls could have been made during the Reformation.

·      In the prefigure of A.D. 27-70, Ezekiel 9 and 22:17-31 were fulfilled as types of the end-time BEGINNING AT HIS SANCTUARY, the SDA church, Ezekiel 9:6,[3] and Testimonies, Vol. 5, 211.[4]

I will now elaborate on some of the above stated facts of Scripture and the Spirit of Prophecy. In the prefigure example of Christ and His disciples, a bride was prepared to “gather out” those who would later give the gospel to the world AFTER THE JEWS WERE WARNED WITH TWO CALLS. Desire of Ages, 179 reveals that John the Baptist helped prepare a bride for Jesus in the person of His disciples.

In Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 405-6, we find that the voice of God “AND THE VOICE OF THE BRIDE,”[5] give the awakening Loud Cry call at the end-time. Their call awakens ALL TEN virgins who had been slumbering and sleeping. So the bride is awakened first by God and then she gives a CALL OUT MESSAGE: “Behold the bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him.”

Interestingly enough, Philadelphia was the state of the Adventist people in 1844. They then constituted the bride (Zion) of Jesus Christ. Philadelphia is the bride because of the following reasons:

·      Philadelphia was the only church in Revelation 3 that is not faulted for one thing.

·      Philadelphia is made a pillar in the Temple in heaven, Rev. 3:10-12.

·      Philadelphia is Zion, the bride of Isaiah 62:1-5, who is married. It is she who awakens the ten virgins with a “call out” message. That message was a call out in BOTH the calls made by Jesus and His disciples. That message was a Midnight Cry call out message in 1844. The second call is a Midnight Cry call out message at the final Loud Cry, going FIRST to the professing SDA church. But the bride is being gathered out now, for she cannot knowingly be defiled with women, apostate churches, Revelation 14:1-4. When she learns of the apostasy, she must obey present truth and leave or she would be defiled. We are responsible for the light of truth WHEN WE HEAR IT. We cannot say: “Some more convenient time, Lord.”

·      Ellen White said that only the 144,000 enter the Temple in heaven, Early Writings, p. 19. So in both calls of Matthew 22, a bride, Zion, was involved.

·      According to Laval Picard’s personal opinion theology that the first call of Matthew 22, was made by Jones and Waggoner in 1888, the both would have had to be the bride of Christ. They were hardly a bride of Jesus Christ. They both went off the path later in their experience. The bride of Christ does not do that!

·      In the two prefigure calls made by Christ and His disciples, there were false prophet’s denying the call out message in both cases. False prophets were even hired by the apostate church to tell the people that their only safety consisted of remaining at the apostate Temple church, to wit:

“The leaders of the opposing factions at times united to plunder and torture their wretched victims, and again they fell upon each other's forces and slaughtered without mercy. Even the sanctity of the temple could not restrain their horrible ferocity. The worshipers were stricken down before the altar, and the sanctuary was polluted with the bodies of the slain. Yet in their blind and blasphemous presumption the instigators of this hellish work publicly declared that they had no fear that Jerusalem would be destroyed, for it was God's own city. To establish their power more firmly, they bribed false prophets to proclaim, even while Roman legions were besieging the temple, that the people were to wait for deliverance from God. To the last, multitudes held fast to the belief that the Most High would interpose for the defeat of their adversaries. But Israel had spurned the divine protection, and now she had no defense. Unhappy Jerusalem! rent by internal dissensions, the blood of her children slain by one another's hands crimsoning her streets, while alien armies beat down her fortifications and slew her men of war!” E.G. White, The Great Controversy, p. 29.

As Ellen White called that entire chapter a prefigure (p. 25) of what will transpire at the end-time, BEGINNING AT HIS SANCTUARY, we can be assured that false prophets will be hired to tell professing Seventh-day Adventists the same lie, and the Lord showed me that among those false prophets will be Jesuit infiltrators who will be telling the people the wrong data concerning the two calls of Matthew 22, in order to preserve the coffers of Rome and the now “Romanized” new movement SDA church. The scenario that the Lord showed me this a.m. is incontrovertible and should shut the mouths of the false prophets, but alas, it will not until another literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 9.

Midnight Cry Repeated: "My mind was carried to the FUTURE, when the signal WILL BE GIVEN, 'Behold, the Bridegroom cometh God ye out to meet Him.'" E.G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 3, p. 331, Feb. 11, 1896. Notice the date, Feb. 11, 1896.


[Rev. 18:1, 2, 4, quoted.] This scripture points forward to a time when the announcement of the fall of Babylon, as made by the second angel of Revelation 14 (verse 8), is to be repeated, with the additional mention of the corruptions which have been entering the various organizations that constitute Babylon, since that message was first given, in the summer of 1844. . . . These announcements, uniting with the third angel's message, constitute the final warning to be given to the inhabitants of the earth. . . . {LDE 199.2}


"To Meet the Bridegroom"
[This chapter from Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 405-6, is based on Matt. 25:1-13.] but has every relevance to Matthew 22 and the three calls described therein. 

Christ with His disciples is seated upon the Mount of Olives. The sun has set behind the mountains, and the heavens are curtained with the shades of evening. In full view is a dwelling house lighted up brilliantly as if for some festive scene. The light streams from the openings, and an expectant company wait around, indicating that a marriage procession is soon to appear. In many parts of the East, wedding festivities are held in the evening. The bridegroom goes forth to meet his bride and bring her to his home. By torchlight the bridal party proceed from her father's house to his own, where a feast is provided for the invited guests. In the scene upon which Christ looks, a company are awaiting the appearance of the bridal party, intending to join the procession.


Lingering near the bride's house [near it not at it] are ten young women robed in white. Each carries a lighted lamp and a small flagon for oil. All are anxiously watching for the appearance

of the bridegroom. But there is a delay [since the first call in 1844]. Hour after hour passes; the watchers become weary and fall asleep. At midnight the cry is heard, "Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him." The sleepers, suddenly awaking, spring to their feet. They see the procession moving on, bright with torches and glad with music. They hear the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride. The ten maidens seize their lamps and begin to trim them, in haste to go forth. But five have neglected to fill their flasks with oil. They did not anticipate so long a delay, and they have not prepared for the emergency. In distress they appeal to their wiser companions saying, "Give us of your oil; for our lamps are going out." (Margin.) But the waiting five, with their freshly trimmed lamps, have emptied their flagons. They have no oil to spare, and they answer, "Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves."
While they went to buy, the procession moved on, and left them behind. The five with lighted lamps joined the throng and entered the house with the bridal train, and the door was shut. When the foolish virgins reached the banqueting hall, they received an unexpected denial. The master of the feast declared, "I know you not." They were left standing without, in the empty street, in the blackness of the night.


As Christ sat looking upon the party that waited for the bridegroom, He told His disciples the story of the ten virgins, by their experience illustrating the experience of the church that shall live just before His second coming.


The two classes of watchers represent the two classes who profess to be waiting for their Lord. They are called virgins because they profess a pure faith. By the lamps is represented the word of God. The psalmist says, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto may path."  E.G. White, Christ’s Object Lessons, 405-6.

Without vision the people perish. Pro 29:18 Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he.

Thank you Lord for the vision you gave to me which sets the record incontrovertibly straight for any sincere seeker of your truth.

This past week, Laval Picard said on an SDA Internet forum that he was going to pray that God would judge between himself and me. I believe that judgment has been made by the evidence presented in this vision. And I will be dealing with other false accusations of one Laval Picard in the forthcoming days and weeks. In light of the incontrovertible evidence of my vision, the false prophets should go hide their faces in a cave until Jesus comes. But will that be the case? Never!

Your humble but willing servant,

[1] Mat 25:6  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

[2] Isa 62:11  Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward [is] with him, and his work before him.

[3] Eze 9:6  Slay utterly old [and] young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom [is] the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which [were] before the house.

[4] 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.
