SDA Pastor Says Wise Virgins Repent Without Leaving an Organization

Incredibly, an SDA Pastor is teaching on a WorldWide Internet SDA Chat Group, that the wise virgins repent of their Laodicean condition, but DO NOT leave an organization; that "go ye out to meet Him," refers only to going out of the world. This is heresy of the highest order because it is empirical knowledge that the Laodicean Message applies to all organized churches, and that the Midnight Cry is a call to leave all fallen churches. The wise of the ten virgins obey the call of the voice of God AND THE BRIDE (Christ's Object Lessons, p. 406) to "go ye out to meet Him," thus going out of the world and all the fallen churches [that are INDISTINGUISHABLE from the world EW, 273]. This call is in response to the Midnight Cry that has been sounding since 1844, and will again be repeated in the Loud Cry call, according to Ellen White. Notice her statements concerning the Midnight Cry in 1844, and that the Midnight Cry will be repeated in the future:

Midnight Cry Repeated--"My Mind was carried (FORWARD) to the FUTURE, when the SIGNAL will be given, 'Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; Go ye out to meet Him.'" E.G. White, Review and Herald, vol. 3, p. 331, Feb. 11, 1896.

"The parable of the wise and foolish virgins comes as a solemn warning to EVERY CHURCH. E.G. White, Review and Herald, vol. 4, pp. 373-4.

Every church is inclusive of the professing SDA Church. Isaiah 4:1-4, makes it clear that all formally churches, represented by seven women, are doing their own thing at the end-time. All Bible commentarians agree that Isaiah chapters 1-4 are end-time in context.

Have the wise virgins left denominations since 1844 and on?

"The parable of the wise and foolish virgins comes as a solemn warning to EVERY CHURCH. In the parable, all the ten virgins went out to meet their Lord. All had lamps, and vessels for oil. For a time there was seen no difference between them. So with the church that lives just before Christ's second coming. All have a knowledge of the Scriptures. All have heard the message of Christ's soon approach, and confidently expect His appearing. But as in the parable, so it is now. A time of waiting intervenes, [the tarrying time] faith is tried; and when the cry is heard, 'Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him,' many are unready. They have no oil in ther vessels with their lamps. They are destitute of th Holy Spirit. Working, waiting, watching, and praying,--this constitutes genuine Christianity." E.G. White, Review and Herald, vol. 4, pp. 373-4.

The repeating of the Midnight Cry is additional proof that the bride, 'The True Remnant,' do indeed leave the nominal SDA church, as did the true Christians in the A.D. 70 "prefigure--type." Indeed, the prime purpose for a repeat of that call which has been ongoing since 1844, is to call people out of the fallen professing SDA New Movement church, because it has been in a fallen conditon since the early 1950's when it began to teach to the church and the world an anti-Christ version of the human nature of Jesus Christ, and took its eyes off the Midnight Cry Lighted Path, by becoming ecumenically linked (married) to the World Council of [Fallen] Churches, via membership in its subsidiary councils of churches in at least (to date) eight National Councils of Churchs in eight different countries. The church need but join one National Council to be considered as a member of the World Council of Churches. An additional way the church became married to the world was by agreeing to its accreditation standards which demand that the church teach the curriculum of the world in its educational facilities. Ellen White warned that the church would become the cage of every unclean and hateful bird if it brought the world into the church, and there is no more complete way to bring the world into the church than to teach its required standards in its educational centers. .

"Near the close of the second angel's message, I saw a great light from heaven shining upon the people of God. The rays of this light seemed bright as the sun. And I heard the voices of angels crying, 'Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him!'
This was the midnight cry, which was to give power to the second angel's message. [Is the second angel's message still in force?] ....
"'Angels were sent to the humble, devoted ones, and constrained them to raise the cry, 'Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him!'....
The most spiritual received this message first, and those who had formerly led in the work were the last to receive and help swell the cry, 'Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him!'
In every part of the land, light was given upon the second angel's message, and the cry melted the hearts of thousands. It went from city to city, and from village to village, until the waiting people of God were fully aroused. In many churches the message was not permitted to be given, and a large company who had the living testimony left these fallen churches. E.G. White, Early Writings, p. 238.

Since 1844, the first and second angel's message, as well as the Midnight Cry have been in force. This is made perfectly clear by Ellen White's first vision, in which she saw the Midnight Cry Path LIGHTED ALL ALONG THE PATH TO HEAVEN, and we are not "to heaven" yet. Thus, another SDA Minister, is teaching absolute falsehood to the church and the world over the worldwide internet. This is another reason why we must not go to their churches and be snared by such heretical errors of eternal consequence.

In Ellen White's further elaboration of the Midnight Cry parable, Christ's Object Lessons, pp. 405-6 and on, she says that it is the voice of God and the voice of the bride that awakens the 10 virgins, and Matthew 25:5, says that "they all slumbered and slept." If the voice of the bride awakens all ten, then this must mean that the bride is a separate entity from the ten virgins, and she is. She is the strictly pure "bethulah" (Hebrew meaning of the word virgin) virgin of Isaiah 62:5. I first saw her mission from Isaiah 62:11, where she (Zion--the bride) is instructed to say to her daughter, words [in the KJV] that find a direct parallel with the Midnight Cry of Matthew 25. Those words are:

"Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion [she has a daughter--the 10 virgins], Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him." These words are a paraphrase of Matthew 25:6:

"And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins [all ten] arose [from sleep] and trimmed their lamps.

The bride is Zion, the 144,000, who are made pillars [leaders] in the Temple of God, Rev. 3:12. Only they enter the Temple on Mt. Zion, with Jesus:

"And as we were about to enter the holy temple, Jesus raised His lovely voice and said, 'Only the 144,000 enter this place,' and we shouted, 'Alleuluia.'" Early Writings, p. 19.

In Rev. 3:12, as stated, only Philadelphia, the perfect church, the 144,000 without guile in their mouths, will go into the Temple in heaven and be made pillars or leaders. Philadelphia is also given the promise..."I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth."

This means that Philadelphia must be in existence at the great time of Jacob's trouble, which is the time of temptation [trial] that shall come upon all the world. This means that the bride of all ages will be raised to give the final loud cry awakening message to the ten sleeping virgins. The disciples of Jesus were defined as His bride, Desire of Ages, 179, to wit:

"John represented himself as the friend who acted as a messenger between the betrothed parties, preparing the way for the marriage. When the bridegroom had received his bride [the disciples], the mission of the friend [John the Baptist] was fulfilled." DA 179.

Because the apostate, professing SDA New Movement Church, has become so by teaching anti-Christ doctrine to the world via an anti-Christ teaching on the Human Nature of Jesus Christ, and because the church has aligned itself with the opposers of truth, by becoming MEMBERS of National Councils of Churches in at least eight countries of the world, thus violating Isaiah 8:9-20; the first and second angel's messages, as well as the Midnight Cry, she has taken her eye off the Midnight Cry Lighted path, and made it IMPOSSIBLE for her to get back on the path again. Please note:

"While praying at the family altar, the Holy Ghost fell on me, and I seemed to be rising higher and higher, far above the dark world. I turned to look for the Adventi people in the world, but could not find them--when a voice said to me, 'Look again, and look a little higher.' At this I raised my eyes and saw a straight and narrow path cast up high above the world. On this path the Advent people were tavelling to the City, which was at the farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the first end of the path, which an angel told me was the Midnight Cry. This light shone all along the path, and gave light for their feet so they might not stumble. And if they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus, who was just before them, leading them to the City, they were safe. But soon some grew weary, and they said the City was a great way of, and they expected to have entered it before. Then Jesus would encourage them by raising his glorious right arm, and from his arm came a glorious light which waved over the Advent band, and they shouted Hallelujah! Others rashly denied the light behind them, and said that it was not God that had led them out so far. The light behind them went out leaving their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and got their eyes off the mark and lost sight of Jesus, and fell off the path down in the dark and wicked world below. It was just as impossible for them to get on the path again and go to the City, as all the wicked world which God had rejected. They fell all the way along the path one after another, until we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus' coming....
By this time the 144,000 were all sealed and perfectly united. On their foreheads was written, God, New Jerusalem, and a glorious Star containing Jesus' new name." E.G. White, Word to the Little Flock, p. 14.

OUR COMMENTARY: The Midnight Cry of Matthew 25, called people out of the fallen churches. All who ever hear and understand the Midnight Cry, and thereafter take their eyes off the path lighted by that cry, by re-joining the fallen churches they were called out of by membership or confederacy in ASSOCIATION, COUNSEL AND/OR COUNCIL, GIRDING, OR LINKING WITH THEM IN ANY WAY WHICH WOULD IDENTIFY US WITH THEM, FALL OFF THE PATH AND IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO GET ON THE PATH AGAIN, WHICH IMPLIES SHUT DOOR UNPARDONABLE SIN! God's Word implies the same unpardonableness for such offense in Isaiah 8:9-20, and Revelation 14:9, 10. This is what Ellen White really meant by "shut door!" Her meaning has been grossly perverted by those who have committed this unpardonable sin. This is a most serious consideration every SDA should weigh heavily before he/she determines to enter ecumenical relationship with and/or join any of the fallen churches.
