Update--The Stubborn Obstinance of RP or How NOT to Conduct an Anointing Service

Click to go to our Home Page

Dear Forum,

I should note at the beginning of this update, that RP is a trained SDA minister. On the forum where RP regularly posts, there are a number of ordained SDA ministers:

The following item was posted to an SDA issues group forum by RP, on Sabbath afternoon, the very day that his wife was anointed for cancer in her hospital room. Yes, RP's wife has now been diagnosed as having cancer. RP is the person referred to in my previous Menu Item entitled A Remarkable Prophesy Fulfilled. In the following post by RP to a person by the name of S--, (Name omitted for privacy reasons), RP admits that his wife has now been diagnosed with cancer; that she received an anointing service in the hospital the Sabbath afternoon of October 26. RP still accuses me (Ron Beaulieu) to S--, stating that I traffic in such things as evil spirits who tell me what to prophesy. Since it is the Holy Spirit that showed me what I prophesied, and since according to Ellen White, it is unpardonable sin to attribute the workings of the Holy Spirit to an evil spirit, this is a most serious charge by RP. Even when being instructed by the anointing minister that one should not come to such a service with unconfessed sin, RP persisted in his sin of wrongfully accusing me of dealing in evil spirits, (in another posting he compared me with Saul in consulting with familiar spirits) and he still indicts against my teaching of the errors of the trinity doctrine. This is abominable stubbornness in light of his wife's condition. Here is an excerpt from RP's testimony to S--, regarding obedience, overcoming and perfection:


Let me address a very common misconception, that you have addressed here.

Obedience is not perfection of character. Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, stated that according to the "law" he was blameless. But also under the inspiration of that same spirit, he wrote that he was the chief of sinners. Paul had come to realize the principle that I am sharing. As illustrated above, perfection comes by the focus and use of the mental facilities. This is made even more clear in this following statement.

"Through the right exercise of the will an entire change may be made in the life. By yielding up the will to Christ, we ally ourselves with divine power. We receive strength from above to hold us steadfast. A pure and noble life, a life of victory over appetite and lust, is possible to everyone who will unite his weak, wavering human will to the omnipotent, unwavering will of God." {CH 440.2}

"Pure religion has to do with the will. The will is the governing power in the nature of man, bringing all the other faculties under its sway. The will is not the taste or the inclination, but it is the deciding power, which works in the children of men unto obedience to God, or unto disobedience." {MYP 151.1} (Also see: SC 47)

Obedience comes from a will surrendered to the control of the Holy Spirit, not perfection coming from right actions.

See, perfection is getting into the habit of trusting God completely, not in always doing the right thing. This is critical. People are well able to hid incorrect behavior, sometimes forever, as far as human knowledge goes. But, a person who has gotten into the habit of trusting God will be a witness for all to see. This is one reason we need to test a person's message, not his life style or character. If we test the wrong thing, we may in fact find that we have to eliminate all inspired writers and then we are the looser.

This is important, because virtually every known messenger from God has personal weaknesses. Let me share what just came to my attention a few hours ago.

As those on this forum know, my wife is very ill with cancer, which has only recently come to our attention. (Well, I guess the evil spirit that talks to Ron told him about it earlier, since he traffics in such things.) Also, I believe that I also posted the fact that we were going to have an anointing service this afternoon. So, we followed the biblical injunction found in James 5 and called in the elders and anointed her. It was a most beautiful service. The Holy Spirit was there in a marked manner. No, she didn't jump out of bed, but the healing to her troubled mind, her belief that she was about to die, was noticeable. Unlike any anointing service I have known of where there are three or four people there, this one was attended by something like 20 people. All friends and loved ones who, by their coming, testified of their love for Ruth and many commented that she was a walking example of the love of God, which had drawn them to her. It was a moving experience, felt by all and it was a blessing to not just the one in the hospital bed, but also those of us standing around.

Note by Ron Beaulieu: Please read James 5. RP did not fulfill James 5:16. He did not love God and/or his wife sufficiently to give me the benefit of the doubt and confess his abominable fault of condemning me as having an evil familiar spirit (in another post to the SDA e-group forum) and for continuing to wrongfully accuse me as regards my message about the omega heresy as contained in the trinity doctrine.
We cannot pervert James 5:16, by perversely interpreting verse 17 (like passions) as meaning unconfessed sins. That is what RP did in his following rationalized interpretation of James 5:16, 17: End Note by Ron Beaulieu. Back to RP's post to S--:

But that isn't what came to my attention. Here it is. I have often read the admonition regarding the prayers for the sick in James 5. However, I always stopped at verse 16. In fact the highlighting in my Bible stops there too. But the minister conducting the service read on to verse 18. It was then that it hit me. The righteous man spoken of in verse 16 is illustrated by the life of Elijah. He was a man of like passions as we all are, yet, he was a righteous man who prayed and miraculous things happened.

This was of a special comfort to me, because it has always been presented that if there is anyone who doesn't believe or who is harboring sin in their lives that God will not answer the prayer of anointing. Yet, in this group standing around my wife, there were many who had unconfessed sin that I knew of. I'll not go into detail, for that isn't the issue here. In fact, I hadn't told some about the anointing, because I knew they were not right with God and I didn't want the anointing prayer to be hindered by that factor (something I am now acutely embarrassed about (and some will not doubt throw in my face). In fact, I was almost tempted to not be there myself because I felt so unworthy to even represent myself as a righteous man when I knew that the one who can read every aspect of one's life would be there.

But, when I realized that God isn't looking for people who never make mistakes. He isn't looking for people who obey every hidden nuance of His law. Rather He is looking for people who love Him supremely and are daily getting into the habit of confessing their sins and choosing to be on His side. Since those are characteristics I can claim, therefore, according to James, I can consider myself as a righteous man and expect that God will hear and answer my prayer, as well as those who were in attendance there who I have every reason to believe are not completely right with God.

In fact, this is the perfection God is seeking, totally and complete submission to God's will. OR to say it another way, "getting into the habit of choosing God's way in every situation."

P.S. (by RP)

Have you ever noticed that those advocating the erroneous concepts of perfection always create a standard that they feel that they have already met?

What was the standard which EGW met?


The one outlined above.


Then, those like yourself (S--) come to the conclusion that it is very difficult to meet those standards.

In my case, it's Romans 7:19+1st John 1:8+Vain efforts to reach this perfection.


RP to S--:

Yes, that is very true. We all have sinned, but notice that this is the past tense. Also notice that this does not say that we are actively sinning, but the indication is that we have the capability to sin. But this was also true of Jesus. He had the capability to sin, but He never activated that capability. How do we know? Because He testified that He did nothing except what His heavenly Father told Him to do. He never choose to do things His way.

And it is also true that when we choose to activate our will to do what God asks us to do, that this sin which indwells us strives for attention and demands obedience to our sinful desires. But consider this truism.

It isn't the greatness of the sin that overtakes a man that is the measure of the man, but the sin that he overcomes.

Perfection is a life style, not a destination. It is a way of living, not some level of accomplishment.

RP to S--:

Likewise, if you want to reach the perfection that so many claim or set up as the goal, all you need to do is lie about it like they do. It is that easy.

S-- to RP:

But, what about EGW said?

RP to S--:

I suspect that I have already addressed that question. If not, then repost it.

RP to S--:

P.S. There is a reachable standard of perfection, but it is seldom the one(s) most talk about.

What kind of standard do you mean?

God bless you,


RP to S--:

Just as I have already described. It is the standard outlined in James 1:2-4, where we get into the habit of choosing God's way in every situation. Where, as in Romans 7, we come to the realization that there is no escape from the sin which dwell within us, EXCEPT through Jesus Christ our Lord.

You are asking the most important questions that we can discuss as we stand in this end time of earth's history. Our eternal salvation hinges on how we believe here, not the nature of the trinity.

Note by Ron Beaulieu:

Our Salvation here depends on what we believe about what the Godhead has done for us (the greatest gift possible for mankind--the Holy Spirit life, breath and soul of Christ) as a regenerating agency. Without this, neither obedience, overcoming or perfection can be attained. RP here betrays his gross ignorance of the importance of the Godhead and who and what was given to us by the Sacrifice of the Son and Jesus Christ.

Now RP is still continuing his harangue against me and my message. Will he be next to receive the plight of his wife? If God permitted two she-bears to kill 42 children because they insulted Elisha and his bald head, what do you think He will permit when the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) of His Son Jesus, is insulted and maligned?

2Ki 2:1 And it came to pass, when the LORD would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.

2Ki 2:2 And Elijah said unto Elisha, Tarry here, I pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Bethel. And Elisha said [unto him, As] the LORD liveth, and [as] thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they went down to Bethel.

2Ki 2:3 And the sons of the prophets that [were] at Bethel came forth to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he said, Yea, I know [it]; hold ye your peace.

2Ki 2:4 And Elijah said unto him, Elisha, tarry here, I pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Jericho. And he said, [As] the LORD liveth, and [as] thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they came to Jericho.

2Ki 2:5 And the sons of the prophets that [were] at Jericho came to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he answered, Yea, I know [it]; hold ye your peace.

2Ki 2:6 And Elijah said unto him, Tarry, I pray thee, here; for the LORD hath sent me to Jordan. And he said, [As] the LORD liveth, and [as] thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. And they two went on.

2Ki 2:7 And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went, and stood to view afar off: and they two stood by Jordan.

2Ki 2:8 And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped [it] together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.

2Ki 2:9 And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.

2Ki 2:10 And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: [nevertheless], if thou see me [when I am] taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be [so].

2Ki 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, [there appeared] a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

2Ki 2:12 And Elisha saw [it], and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.

2Ki 2:13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan;

2Ki 2:14 And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where [is] the LORD God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.

2Ki 2:15 And when the sons of the prophets which [were] to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.

2Ki 2:16 And they said unto him, Behold now, there be with thy servants fifty strong men; let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master: lest peradventure the Spirit of the LORD hath taken him up, and cast him upon some mountain, or into some valley. And he said, Ye shall not send.

2Ki 2:17 And when they urged him till he was ashamed, he said, Send. They sent therefore fifty men; and they sought three days, but found him not.

2Ki 2:18 And when they came again to him, (for he tarried at Jericho,) he said unto them, Did I not say unto you, Go not?

2Ki 2:19 And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city [is] pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water [is] naught, and the ground barren.

2Ki 2:20 And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought [it] to him.

2Ki 2:21 And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren [land].

2Ki 2:22 So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake.

2Ki 2:23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.

2Ki 2:24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

2Ki 2:25 And he went from thence to mount Carmel, and from thence he returned to Samaria.

The above occurred after Elisha had just received a double-portion of the Holy Spirit which Elijah has possessed. Ironically enough, RP quotes James 5:17.

Elisha solicited a double portion of Elijah's (Elias') Spirit which was the ONE, ETERNAL, HOLY SPIRIT LIFE, BREATH AND SOUL of Jesus Christ, which was given as a regenerating agency. That regenerating agency can heal from sin and from afflictions resulting from sin. But that regenerating agency will not heal those who are blaspheming the Holy Ghost, which is unpardonable sin.

If 42 children were killed because of mocking Elisha's bald head, what do you think will happen to those who mock the Holy Spirit LIFE, BREATH AND SOUL of Jesus Christ, and those who teach the abominable, blasphemous error of the trinity doctrine that nullifies the Holy Spirit LIFE, BREATH AND SOUL of Jesus Christ? You have been forewarned.

No anointing service held, without repentance of such a grievous crime, will be honored by God. But more serious, such a heinous crime against the Holy Spirit is unpardonable according to the Bible and Ellen White. Both the messenger and the message depicting this unpardonable sin, have been cursed on this forum. Thus, the Holy Spirit has been cursed. It is still being mocked and cursed. The results will be recognized in the ensuing weeks and months regarding all who are willing to engage this serious blasphemy willingly, wantonly, knowingly.

I hereby prophesy again. I prophesy that no such anointing service can be honored. Beware of such cursing of the Holy Spirit of God and Christ, the ONE, ETERNAL, HOLY SPIRIT ESSENCE OF THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE HOLY GHOST, the very LIFE, BLOOD, BREATH AND SOUL of Jesus Christ. Also, beware of mocking and thus cursing the messengers who bring you the truth regarding such serious matters.


Had I conducted the anointing service in mention, I would have counseled all participants prior to the service, that any unconfessed sin would nullify the intent of the service. That is what the attending minister should have done.
