The Greatest Heresy Known to Man--The Blasphemy of the Trinity Doctrine

Click to go to our Home Page

All of the following statements by Ellen White, need to be interpreted so that nothing contradicts. When this is done, nothing contradicts my vision of the Godhead, that the greatest gift God provided for us at the Incarnation was the Gift of His Holy Spirit, which was and is His former, first estate, Life, Soul, Breath, for the purposes of providing unprecedented power for overcoming, and demonstrating the self-sacrificing, self-effacing character of the Godhead. The Father demonstrated this self-sacrificing character in accepting the voluntary sacrifice of the Son. The Son demonstrated this self-sacrificing character by offering to voluntarily be the Sacrifice for man's sins, but more than that, Sacrificing attributes of His Holy Spirit FOREVER, and in effect, "dying" to His first estate of Being, while preserving His FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY. By interpreting the following statement so that nothing contradicts, it is a true logical conclusion that the Third Person of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit, became that Third person at the Incarnation of Christ, even though Christ's Holy Spirit existed as an innate part of His Being since eternity.

Christ Raised (Begotten by the Father) Twice

We find in Acts 13:33, 34, that Christ was raised (begotten) twice as connoted by the word "again." The Lord has shown this writer that this text refers both to the resurrection of the Son from the Incarnation in the Sanctuary in Heaven, (the first death to Christ's former first estate) to life in Mary's womb, and then again from Christ's death on the cross where He was raised from His second estate as a combination of FULLY DIVINITY AND FULL HUMANITY:

"God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus AGAIN; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David.

Note: It is recognized that Divinity cannot die, but in effect, Christ died to His first estate of BEING, by giving up (sacrificing) certain attributes of that state of BEING to become united with humanity. For example, we will find in the following study that, according to Ellen White, Christ did not have omnipresence because of being "cumbered with humanity." She also states that Christ will retain His humanity FOREVER.

Here are the statements we must interpret so that nothing contradicts. None of these statements substantiate that the Holy Spirit existed as a Third Person BEFORE the Incarnation. They do substantiate that the Holy Spirit existed as an innate part of the Godhead and as Christ's innate Spirit before the Incarnation, and then became a Third Person Successor to Christ when He sacrificed His Holy Spirit at the Incarnation, as a gift to be given to us after His glorification.

"Personality of the Holy Spirit.--We need to realize that the Holy Spirit, who is as much a person as God is a person, is walking through these grounds.--Manuscript 66, 1899. (From a talk to the students at the Avondale School.) E.G. White, Evangelism, p. 616.

Based on all of the following Biblical and Scriptural evidence, the only way we can interpret the above statement so that nothing contradicts, is that the above statement means that the innate Holy Spirit of the Son, became a third person of the Godhead, AFTER BECOMING CHRIST'S SUCCESSOR AT THE INCARNATION. The Holy Spirit existed eternally before the Incarnation, but only as a separate and distinct person, when the Holy Spirit became Christ's successor.

“Cumbered with humanity Christ could not be in every place personally, therefore it was altogether for their advantage that He should leave them to go to His Father and send the Holy Spirit to be His SUCCESSOR on earth. The Holy Spirit is Himself divested of the personality of humanity and independent thereof. He would represent Himself as present in all places by His Holy Spirit.” E.G. White, (Manuscript Releases Volume 14 (No’s 1081-1135) MR No.1084.

"The Holy Spirit has a personality, else He could not bear witness to our spirits and with our spirits that we are the children of God. He must also be a divine person, else He could not search out the secrets which lie hidden in the mind of God. 'For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.'"--Manuscript 20, 1906. E.G. White, Evangelism, p. 617.

The Spirit of God, the ONE, ETERNAL SPIRIT, was shared by Christ and the Father as their ONE, INNATE, ETERNAL SPIRIT, until the Incarnation. At that time, the Holy Spirit became the THIRD-PERSON SUCCESSOR TO CHRIST, when He laid off omnipresence, omniscience, and omnipotence, to become combined with humanity. We will provide the necessary statements by Ellen White and Scripture to substantiate this fact.

Hbr 9:14--"How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?"

1Cr 6:17--"But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit."

1Cr 12:13--"For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit."

Eph 2:18--"For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father."

Eph 4:4--"[There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;"

Phl 1:27--"Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;"

"The Power of God in the Third Person.--The prince of the power of evil can only be held in check by the pwoer of God in the third person of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit.--Special Testimonies, Series A, No. 10, p. 37. (1897). E.G. White, Evangelism, p. 617.

"In Co-operation With the Three Highest Powers.--We are to co-operate with the three highest powers in heaven,--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost,--and these powers will work through us, making us workers together with God.--Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, p. 51. (1905). Evangelism, p. 617.

The Heavenly Trio--"The Comforter that Christ promised to send after He ascended to heaven, is the Spirit in all the fullness of the Godhead, making manifest the power of divine grace to all who receive and believe in Christ as a personal Saviour. There are three living person of the heavenly trio; in the name of these three great powers--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit--those who receive Christ by living faith are baptized, and these powers will co-operate with the obedient subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ.--Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, pp. 62, 63. (1905)." Evangelism, 615.

Does Divine Grace have power? Notice the word's "the power of divine grace" in the above statement. Have you ever sung the hymn: There's Power in the Blood? Who shed the blood, the Holy Spirit or Christ? Whose life was in the blood that was shed, Christ's life, or that of the Holy Spirit? The power was in the blood, the gift was the Holy Spirit, the BREATH, THE SOUL, THE LIFE, THE HOLY SPIRIT OF CHRIST.

"The Eternal Dignitaries of the Trinity.--The eternal heavenly dignitaries--God, and Christ, and the Holy Spirit--arming them [this disciples] with more than mortal energy,... would advance with them to the work and convince the world of sin.--Manuscript 145, 1901." E.G. White Evangelism, p. 616.

The Bible mentions ONE, ETERNAL SPIRIT, shared by the Father and the Son. Even though the Holy Spirit existed eternally as innate to the Father and the Son, according to Ellen White, the Holy Spirit was Christ's very LIFE, SOUL, and BREATH, which He "laid off" at His Incarnation, at which time this "laid off" Holy Spirit became the Third Person Representative of Christ. This interpretation is necessary in order not to contradict the following statements:

"The Holy Spirit is the breath of spiritual life in the soul. The impartation of the Spirit is the impartation of the life of Christ. It imbues the receiver with the attributes of Christ. Only those who are thus taught of God, those who possess the inward working of the Spirit, and in whose life the Christ-life is manifested, are to stand as representative men, to minister in behalf of the church." Desire of Ages, 805.

"Christ gives them the breath of HIS OWN SPIRIT, the life of HIS OWN LIFE. The HOLY SPIRIT puts forth its highest energies to work in the heart and mind." Desire of Ages, 827.

Clearly, the BREATH OF HIS OWN SPIRIT, THE LIFE OF HIS OWN LIFE, is the Holy Spirit.

If the Holy Spirit is the impartation of the life of Christ, the very BREATH OF HIS OWN SPIRIT, then the Holy Spirit could not have become a separate Third Person from Christ's life until Christ offered up that Life, His Holy Spirit, at the Incarnation, entrusting it to the Father, as the greatest gift He could bestow on mankind, after His Glorification.

"Christ declared that after His ascension, he would send to his church, as his crowning GIFT, the comforter, who is the Holy Spirit,--THE SOUL OF HIS LIFE, THE EFFICACY OF HIS CHURCH, THE LIGHT AND LIFE OF THE WORLD. With HIS SPIRIT Christ sends a reconciling influence and a power that takes away sin. In the gift of the Spirit, [HIS LIFE--THE SOUL OF HIS LIFE] Jesus gave to man the highest good that heaven could bestow." E.G. White, Review and Herald, May 19, 1904. Book 5, p. 42.

Did Christ Have a Soul Prior to the Incarnation?

"Those who think of the result of hastening or hindering the gospel think of it in relation to themselves and to the world. Few think of its relation to God. Few give thought to the suffering that sin has caused our Creator. All heaven suffered in Christ's agony; but that suffering did not begin or end with His manifestation in humanity. The cross is a revelation to our dull senses of the pain that, from its very inception, sin has brought to the heart of God. Every departure from the right, every deed of cruelty, every failure of humanity to reach His ideal, brings grief to Him. When there came upon Israel the calamities that were the sure result of separation from God,--subjugation by their enemies, cruelty, and death, --it is said that 'His SOUL was grieved for the misery of Israel.' 'In all their affliction He was afflicted:.... and He bare them, and carried them all the days of old.' Judges 10:16; Isaiah 63:9." E.G. White, Education, p. 263.

AFTER HIS ASCENSION, Christ sent a crowning gift, the highest good that heaven could bestow, the comforter who is the Holy Spirit--THE SOUL OF HIS LIFE.

Again, If the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, who is THE SOUL OF CHRIST'S LIFE, A RECONCILING INFLUENCE AND POWER THAT TAKES AWAY SIN, this points directly to Christ as the ONLY POWER THAT CAN TAKE AWAY SIN, BECAUSE IT WAS CHRIST WHO MADE AN ATONEMENT TO TAKE AWAY SIN, NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT. In other words, the Holy Spirit of Christ did not make an Atonement on the Cross, for the sins of mankind. Christ did. But it was a "laying off" of His innate Holy Spirit at the Incarnation, that constituted that Gift. It is then that the Holy Spirit became a separate, third person of the Godhead, even though the Holy Spirit existed as the innate Spirit of God the Father and God the Son from eternity.

The Greatest Gift--The above statement says that Jesus, not the Holy Spirit, gave to man the highest good that heaven could bestow. The giver of that gift was Christ. The gift was the Holy Spirit, the LIFE and SOUL OF HIS LIFE.

Does the SDA CREED BOOK Seventh-day Adventists Believe, support the fact that the Holy Spirit comes as the Spirit of Christ?

"The truth about God the Holy Spirit is best understood as seen through Jesus. When the Sprit comes to believers, He comes as the 'Spirit of Christ'--He does not come in His own right, carrying His own credentials." Seventh-day Adventists Believe, p. 61.

Conclusion, the heavenly trio as three separate persons, with the Holy Spirit being the Third Person, has to be dated from the time Christ "laid off" His Holy Spirit at His Incarnation as the greatest Gift He could bestow. Thus the heavenly trio.

The Holy Spirit Before the Incarnation Was Not a Successor to Christ

"The atonement of Christ sealed forever the everlasting covenant of grace. It was the fulfilling of every condition upon which God suspended the free communication of grace to the human family. Every barrier was then broken down which intercepted the freest fulness of the esercise of grace, mercy, peace and love to the most guilty of Adam's race.--Manuscript 92, 1899. E.G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, 7a, p. (455).

The inference from the above statement is that before Adam's sin, before the Incarnation and the Atonement, there was a free communication of Christ's grace via His own innate Holy Spirit to the human family and there no need of a third person successor to Christ. He communicated His grace directly as part of His innate ETERNAL SPIRIT BEING. However, after sin, God SUSPENDED THE FREE COMMUNICATION OF GRACE TO THE HUMAN FAMILY. That communication of grace was intercepted by sin. But that barrier of sin that suspended and intercepted the free communication of grace to the human family was broken down by the Incarnation and Atonement of Christ. However, because Christ's omnipresence was FOREVERMORE circumscribed, CUMBERED, by His FOREVER RETAINED HUMANITY combined with Divinity, the Holy Spirit became a THIRD PERSON SUCCESSOR and REPRESENTATIVE of Christ. However, Christ, in effect, is still omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent, through His representative, His Holy Spirit.

The question arises as to what happened to individuals existing before the Incarnation? What measures were in place for handling of their sins? Were they at any disadvantage after the fall and until the Incarnation. The answer is yes. They were at a distinct disadvantage, because Christ had not net Atoned for sin in order to send them the gift of His very live, breath and soul; His Holy Spirit for overcoming. What happened to pre-Atonement individuals? The sins of Israel were handled by the Sanctuary Service. But what about others not of that fold? That question we will answer is another study at some other time, because it is a lengthy topic by itself.

"Before offering himself as the sacrificial victim, Christ sought for the most essential and comlete gift to bestow upon his followers, a gift that would bring within their reach the boundless resources of grace. 'I will pray the Father,' he said, ' and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world can not receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him; but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you orphans: I [CHRIST] WILL COME TO YOU.'
Before this the Spirit had been in the world; from the very beginning of the work of redemption he had been moving upon men's hearts. But while Christ was on earth, the disciples had desired no other helper. Not until they were deprived of his presence would they feel the need of the Spirit,and then he would come." E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, December 17, 1908, Vol. 5, p. 470, col. 3.

In the above statement it is of great signifigance that the "another Comforter, the Spirit of truth, that dwells in us, is non other than the Holy Spirit of Christ prior to the Incarnation and that is the vehicle for Christ being in us after the Incarnation; after He laid that attribute off as a gift to us. He says,"I [CHRIST] WILL COME TO YOU." In extending this gift to us, Jesus in no way became less than Divine, because He was sired by the Holy Spirit, and was thus FULLY DIVINE

Scripture says: "Phl 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." "Psa 119:30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid [before me]." "Jhn 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

The thing that "dwelleth with and in us" is the mind and spirit of Christ. This mind "was also in" Christ Jesus. Why does this not read: "Let this mind be in you, which IS [NOT WAS] in Christ Jesus? Because Jesus gave up something for us at the Incarnation and that "something" was the "...most essential and complete gift to bestow upon His followers, a gift that would bring within their reach the boundless resources of grace..." not only by way of pardon for sins past, but raw, unlimited power to overcome sin, that the Sanctuary in heaven might be forever cleasned of all sin. That was the reason for the Atonement. "In times past holy men of old spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. In ancient times the prophets searched what the spirit of God which was in them signified. The Spirit was not then given in power because Jesus was not yet glorified." E.G. White Manuscript Releases Volume One, p. 364.

The Everlasting dignitaries of heaven, have always been the Father, the Son, and the ONE, ETERNAL, HOLY SPIRIT shared by both of them, but that ONE, ETERNAL, HOLY SPIRIT did not become Christ's SUCCESSOR, and a separate person, until the Incarnation, when Christ separated His Spirit from Himself, as the greatest gift He could bestow to man.

The Self-denial, Self-Sacrificing, self-effacing Factor: "Now the guilt of Satan stood forth without excuse. His lying charges against the divine character and government appeared in their true light. He had accused God of seeking merely the exaltation of himself in requiring submission and obedience from his creatures, and had declared that while the Creator exacted self-denial from all others, HE HIMSELF PRACTICED NO SELF DENIAL, AND MADE NO SACRIFICE. Now it was seen that for the salvation of a fallen and sinful race, the Ruler of the universe had made the greatest sacrifice which God could make. It was seen, also, that while Lucifer had opened the door for the entrance of sin, by his desire for honor and supremacy, Christ had, in order to destroy sin, humbled himself, and become obedient unto death." E.G. White, Spirit of Prophecy, 1884 Great Controversy, vol. 4, p. 322.

What was the Greatest Sacrifice; the Crowing Gift, the Highest Good That Heaven Could Bestow?

"Christ declared that after His ascension, he would send to his church, as his crowning GIFT, the comforter, who is the Holy Spirit,--THE SOUL OF HIS LIFE, THE EFFICACY OF HIS CHURCH, THE LIGHT AND LIFE OF THE WORLD. With HIS SPIRIT Christ sends a reconciling influence and a power that takes away sin. In the gift of the Spirit, [HIS LIFE--THE SOUL OF HIS LIFE] Jesus gave to man the highest good that heaven could bestow." E.G. White, Review and Herald, May 19, 1904. Book 5, p. 42.

The highest good that heaven could bestow involved more than Christ's death on the cross. It involved the sacrifice of His First estate Holy Spirit, to later be given to us as a source of power for overcoming sin. Without THAT GIFT, the Atonement, Christ's death on the Cross, that death would have been of no avail.

"The Spirit was given as a regenerating agency, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail." E.G. White, Review and Herald, May 19, 1904, The Promise of the Spirit, pr. 3.

The purpose of the Incarnation was to lay off Christ's Holy Spirit as a gift. That Holy Spirit is given as a regenerating agency. Also, the purpose of that gift was to demonstrate the self-sacrificing, self-denial aspect of Christ's character. Without this gift of the Incarnation, the gift on the cross would be of no avail in FOREVER eradicating sin.

Without the Gift of Christ's Holy Spirit, which He laid off at His Incarnation, to become the Third Person SUCCESSOR of Christ, the gift (sacrifice) of Christ's life on the cross would have been of no avail? Why? Because sin could never have been eradicated without the regenerating agency of the Holy Spirit of Christ. Christ would ONLY have died so that we could continue to sin forever. The Sanctuary would never have been able to be cleansed. This is what the Trinity doctrine provides for and ALL THE TRINITY DOCTRINE PROVIDES FOR. It provides Christ's sacrifice on the cross for sins. It does not provide for the "laying off" of Christ's Holy Spirit, as a regenerating agency, whereby man need never sin again.

According to the Trinity doctrine, Christ did not sacrifice His Holy Spirit, by laying it off as a gift for us at His Incarnation; His very LIFE, SOUL, and BREATH. According to the Trinity doctrine, this personal, self-denying sacrifice was impossible at the Incarnation, because that doctrine says that the Holy Spirit existed from eternity as the Third Person, and did not become the third person as a result of the sacrifice of Christ of His Holy Spirit at the Incarnation, as the greatest gift Christ could bestow on man, in order to provide grace power to overcome all sin this side of glorification.

This "power for overcoming factor" is the main reason that the advocates of the New Theology will not accept this gift of Christ. They want the teaching of the trinity doctrine, that Christ kept the law for us, and that He did not provide power for us to keep it, via the gift of His Holy Spirit as a regenerating power. They want pardon and not power. They believe that Christ kept the law for us; that we have no power to keep the law by the empowering grace of Christ's Holy Spirit. It is true that Christ kept the law for us as far as justification is concerned, but He also was our EXAMPLE, showing that by receiving His great gift of His Life, His Holy Spirit, we can be empowered to keep His law as He did. This is the sanctification that is denied by the trinity doctrine. Thus the greatest gift of the Godhead is rejected; the very Holy Spirit of Christ, as laid down for us at the Incarnation for our sanctification after we are justified for sins past and mistakes in the present or future.

Some trinitarians may claim that they believe in sanctification, but their very belief in the trinity doctrine nullifies the process by which we are sanctified: namely, the gift of Christ's sacrifice of His Holy Spirit as a regenerating agency which occurred at His Incarnation.

In a short summary, what is totally the most blasphemous abomination in the history of man, is the trinity doctrine, which says that the Holy Spirit existed from time immemorial as the Third Person, and this nullifies the great sacrifice and self-denial Christ made at His Incarnation, by THEN laying aside His Holy Spirit, as the best gift He could ever bestow on man. One involves a great sacrifice on the part of Christ. The trinity doctrine makes the Holy Spirit exist forever as separate from Christ, and merely makes the Holy Spirit Christ's successor without that Holy Spirit having been the sacrifice of Christ's personal Holy Spirit, at His Incarnation. There would be no power in such a third person, because the power is in the blood of Christ. The life is in the blood, and it was Christ's SPIRIT, LIFE, SOUL, BREATH, that was sacrificed, and not that of another Third Person that existed from eternity. The efficasy of the Atonement on the Cross was dependent upon the efficasy of Christ Sanctuary sacrifice at His Incarnation in heaven. Neither would be complete without the other. No Holy Spirit Third Person could make the sacrifice for Christ. It must be made by Christ the Testator of the Covenant, and no Third person Holy Spirit made the Testator agreement between the Father and the Son.

The Sanctuary Gone--The Atonement Gone

The trinity doctrine, as embraced by professing SDA's, in the SDA Creed book Seventh-day Adventists Believe, p. 61, does pure despite to the Sanctuary doctrine, which necessitated that the Greatest sacrificial gift of Christ, that of laying off of Holy Spirit at the Incarnation in the Heavenly Sanctuary, does away with the Sanctuary. It does away with the Atonement on the cross. Why? Because without the Heavenly Sanctuary sacrifice of Christ's Holy Spirit, at the Incarnation, the Atonement on the Cross was of no avail.

"The Spirit was given as a regenerating agency, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail." E.G. White, Review and Herald, May 19, 1904, The Promise of the Spirit, pr. 3.

Atonement -- "The atonement of Christ is not a mere skillful way to have our sins pardoned; it is a divine remedy for the cure of transgression and the restoration of spiritual health. It is the heaven-ordained means by which the righteousness of Christ may be not only upon us, but in our hearts and characters.--Letter 406, 1906." E.G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 7a, 464.

The Trinity doctrine is a mere skillful attempt to have our sins pardoned without the sacrifice of Christ's Holy Spirit at the Incarnation, as a regenerating agency, to be sent to us after Christ's ascension and glorification. The Trinity doctrine leaves this component out by saying the the Holy Spirit existed as a third person eternally, instead of resulting from Christ's sacrifice of His Holy Spirit for us at the Incarnation, and thereby making it available to us as a third person agency to be sent to us after His glorification, for the purpose of our restoration to the image of God. The Trinity doctrine fails as even a "skillful attempt" of pardoning our sins. Why? Because in denying that Christ sacrificed His Holy Spirit LIFE, BREATH, SOUL, forever, for us AT THE INCARNATION, it nullifies the entire Atonement, because without the regenerating agency of Christ's Holy Spirit LIFE, BREATH, AND SOUL, at the Incarnation sacrifice in the heavenly Sanctuary, the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, would have been of no avail. I am laboring this point in an effort to make it clearly understood.

The Trinity doctrine "theoretically" provides for our sins to be pardoned, but it does not provide for the Divine remedy for the cure of transgression and the restoration of spiritual health, so it fails on both counts according to Ellen White. Therefore, sin would go on forever. The Trinity doctrine denies that Christ gave us His very LIFE, SOUL, BREATH, in the form of His Holy Spirit, which He "laid aside" in trust, at His Incarnation, to be given to us at His Glorification after His ascension. It was at the Incarnation of Christ, that the Holy Spirit became the Third Person Successor to Christ, as being His Representative.

The trinity doctrine teaches that the Holy Spirit was an eternally existing third, separate and distinct person of the Godhead. It does not provide for Christ's Holy Spirit (at the Incarnation) being "given" "sacrificed" as a gift to us, and THEN becoming a Third Person regenerating agency. Christ actually gave us His LIFE, BREATH AND SOUL, by laying it aside at the Incarnation for the express purpose that it might become His Third Person successor after His Atonement and Glorification. The purpose of this Third Person was to give us Christ's LIFE, BREATH AND SOUL, for the purpose of overcoming. The trinity doctrine fails because the Trinity doctrine says that the Holy Spirit was another third spirit existing from eternity. This precludes the Great Sacrifice of the Holy Spirit of Christ at His Incarnation. Thus, both the Sanctuary Incarnation and all it included is nullified, and the Atonement on the Cross is nullified, and of no avail, because one is not efficacious without the other, according to Ellen White, and this is why I repeat her following statement:

"The Spirit was given as a regenerating agency, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail." E.G. White, Review and Herald, May 19, 1904, The Promise of the Spirit, pr. 3.

Do You Support the Greatest Heresy Known to Man With Your Sacred Tithe and Offerings?

If you pay your sacred tithe and offerings to any church that embraces the trinity doctrine, which states that the Holy Spirit was not sacrificed by Christ, at His Incarnation, as the greatest gift to man, then you lend support to the greatest heresy known to man. You lend to support to a doctrine that teaches another gospel, a false gospel. Does the professing SDA Church teach that greatest of all heresies?

"The Holy Spirit and the Godhead--From eternity God and the Holy Spirit lived within the Godhead AS THE THIRD MEMBER." Seventh-day Adventists Believe, p. 61, col. 1.

That sentence is the greatest heresy you will ever hear about. That sentence effectually does away with the Sanctuary and the Atonement. That sentence is the sum and substance of the Omega of Apostasy of the professing SDA Church, and any church that believes accordingly.

The Holy Spirit existed from eternity as the ONE, ETERNAL SPIRIT of God the Father, and God the Son, but not as a SEPARATE THIRD PERSON, until Christ sacrificed His Holy Spirit as a gift for us, at His Incarnation in the Heavenly Sanctuary.

Sanctuary and 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.

In the early 1930's, LeRoy Froom brought the Trinity doctrine into the SDA church. At that time, the Sanctuary was GONE, the Atonement was GONE. God was removed, Selected Messages, vol. 1, 205, because His dwelling place is in the Sanctuary of Heaven, and any message that nullifies what happened at Christ's Incarnation and on the Cross, the Atonement, effectively REMOVES GOD from His church.

Others are Then Chosen

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

Who are the "Others"?

"A Firmament of Chosen Ones.-- Among earth's inhabitants, scattered in every land, there are those who have not bowed the knee to Ball. Like the stars of heaven, which appear only at night, these FAITHFUL ONES will shine forth when darkness covers the earth and gross darkness the people. In heathen Africa, in the Catholic lands of Europe and of South America, in China, in India, in the islands of the sea, and in all the dark corners of the earth, God has in reserve a firmament of CHOSEN ONES that will yet shine forth amidst the darkness, revealing clearly to an apostate world the transforming power of obedience to His law. Even now they are appearing IN EVERY NATION, AMONG EVERY TONGUE AND PEOPLE; and in the hour of deepest apostasy, when Satan's supreme effort is made to cause 'all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond,' to receive, under penalty of death, the sign of allegiance to a false rest day, these faithful ones, 'blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke,' will 'shine as light in the world.'" The darker the night, the more brilliantly will they shine." E.G. White, Evangelism,707, and Prophets and Kings, pp. 188, 189.

"The members of the church triumphant--the church in heaven--will be permitted to draw near to the members of the church militant, to aid them in their necessity." E. G. White, The Southern Watchman, Sep. 8, 1903.

"Characteristics of True Reformers.--Here are given the characteristics of those who shall be reformers, who will bear the banner of the third angel's message, those who avow themselves God's commandment-keeping people, and who honor God, and are earnestly engaged, in the sight of all the universe, in building up the old waste places. Who is it that calls them, The repairers of the breach, The restorers of paths to dwell in? It is God. Their names are registered [written--Heb. 12:22, 23] in heaven as reformers, restorers, as raising the foundations of many generations." E. G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 4, 1151.

The Lord has shown this writer that at the end-time, all formally organized church denominations [represented as Seven Women--symbolic of all inclusiveness] will be doing according to the following texts:

"And in that day seven women [all formally organized churchs] shall take hold of one man [Christ], saying We will eat of own bread [our own doctrines and commandments of men], and wear our own apparel [our own robes of self-righteousness], only let us be called by thy name [Christians], to take away our reproach. In that day shall the branch of the Lord [His bride and her sons and daughters Isa. 62] be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel. And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion [the heavenly church triumphant Heb. 12:22, 23], and he that remaineth in [New] Jerusalem [Rev. 3:12] shall be called holy, even every one that is written [registered] among the living in [New] Jerusalem: When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof [from and by the heavenly Zion and New Jerusalem--the heavenly kingdom from which and by which the bad are shaken Matt. 13:45-50 and Heb. 12:22, 23] by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defense. And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain." Isaiah 4:1-6.

All Bible commentaries agree that Isaiah chapters 2 through 4 are end-time in context. The bad are shaken out of the heavenly kingdom of Zion [Matt. 13:45-50 and Heb. 12:22, 23] whether or not they have ever been members of heavenly Zion. They merely have to reject her message to be shaken out.

Friend, if you think God is dependent on a professing, apostate Seventh-day Adventist church to finish His work, think again, and again, and again!
