The Adventist Disconnect–Not Knowing What God Has Revealed

May 5, 2017

     “You don’t know the day or hour”—Christ said it three times; what did He mean? The Greek word for know is eido. It means be aware, understand. Christ meant His disciples didn’t understand. Each time He said it, He gave an example of a provision in the law for Passover (time of judgment, Exod 12:12), a month later.

“As the days of Noah, the Flood came with Passover timing, but in the 2nd spring month. Noah entered the ark on the 10th day, the same day the sacrifice was selected in Exodus 12:3. When people refused Noah’s invitation, they were selecting themselves for sacrifice. Could we be doing the same, not paying attention?

“If the goodman had known, he would have watched, and not suffered his house to be broken by the thief.” The only Old Testament reference to goodman in the King James Bible is Proverbs 7:19,20. He is “gone a long journey” and comes home at the yom kece—full moon. Passover comes on a full moon, but a long trip means 2nd Passover. If Israelites couldn’t get back for Passover, they kept it a month later. Numbers 9:10,11* (Links are active to show source)

After five women missed the wedding. Christ said, Watch (a clue for Passover as the one night in a year that being awake was required, Exod 12:10) You don’t know the day or hour (don’t understand) ‘for the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country.’ Matt 25:14. Christ is the Master who took the long journey to heaven. His return must fit His provision in the law* and should convince honest Jews that He’s the Master.

“In this time of well-nigh universal apostasy…[when leaders have no interest in doing so] we are to give, with no uncertain sound, the message: “Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come.” 4BC 1184. (Link to paragraph with red arrow)

The judgment of the living should begin on Passover as when God executed judgment on Egypt and took Israel to a covenant and said, “I am married to you,” Jer 3:14. That’s how “the Bridegroom comes” and there will be a ‘midnight cry’ of calamity. COL 412 The types that relate to the 2nd advent must be fulfilled at the time of the symbolic service, GC 399 [Passover]

We think ‘all is well till Sunday comes,’ but judgment is impending. It begins with ‘the house of God.’ 1Pet 4 God ‘will bring the blind by a way they knew not.’ Isa 42:16. The lukewarm church where Christ ‘knocked,’ ended in an earthquake; He also knocks in Luke’s wedding parable and we must ‘open to Him immediately.’ His words imply it is only possible if we are ‘watching’ and if so, ‘He will make [us] ruler over all He has.‘Watching’ (being awake at Passover as in Egypt, 1Cor 10:1,11) is protective for the earthquake that initiates end-times. God says He won’t do anything without revealing it, Amos 3:7,8.

The lion’s ‘roar’ is an earthquake. ‘The Lord also shall roar…the heavens and earth shall shake,’ Joel 3:16. Earthquake initiates the day of Lord. The day of the Lord brings ‘sudden destruction…watch, 1Thess 5:2-6. If we don’t watch, He comes as a thief.Mrs. White saw an earthquake at Loma Linda. ‘It seemed that Judgment day had come.’ 9T 92-95. Readers think it was about San Francisco’s earthquake, but she cited Zeph 1:8–God will punish the ‘king’s children.’

Why Loma Linda? Sr. White sent $5000 for the deposit; she wanted natural remedies taught for door-to-door ministry. Leaders went against her “No!” re pharmacology. for ‘by her sorcery [Greek word is pharmekeia] were all nations deceived.’ Rev 18:23. We have the beast system*

2nd Passover (time of judgment clued by Christ) is Thurs night, May 11/12 when we should ‘watch and pray’ as Christ asked His disciples. If not, we may be like the goodman who had his house broken–he didn’t watch.

“As He ate the Passover with His disciples, He instituted in its place the service that was to be the memorial of His great sacrifice.” DA 652. Churches worldwide should be open to celebrate this event and then eat the Lamb spiritually by considering the closing scenes of His life and what He bore for us. If so, we are ready–“Blessed is that servant whom His Lord when He comes shall find watching…He will make him ruler over all that He has…and that servant who knew to prepare and did not, shall be beaten with stripes.” Lk 12:36-47

We have the technology to wake up the world if we would, but we are the ‘remnant’ who get their city burned before the wedding feast gets guests, Matt 22:7.  If we don’t proclaim the time of God’s judgmnet is come, we will still bear the message! For more information, please visit

    Too many have believed the message of the Papacy who decreed that chapter 23 in the Third Book of Moses was no longer to be observed by anyone who desired to be saved by accepting the Catholic Faith, which is defined as belief in the Trinity, as explained in the Creed of Athanasius. That is why numerous church canons were invented, which specified that no one was to live like a Jew, or to observe any of the specific holy days or festivals, which are carefully enumerated, in Leviticus 23, by the Lord God who authored the Holy Bible. Freedom of thought, and the freedom to believe and to obey God, was declared a crime, against the church and against society. We must decide – which organization, and who, is the source of truth, and the source of authority for our life, both now, and for eternity. God has now widened his family circle to invite others, daily, to be his for-ever friends.

      The word “watch” is translated from the Greek word, gregoreo, meaning to be awake.
      There was only one night in the year this was commanded–the night of Passover, as in Exod 12:10; Matt 26:38-41.
      That might memorializes the greatest events of Old & New Testament; It’s hard to stay awake, but we do it by reading the closing chapters of Christ’s like to remember what He bore for us…The biblical clues suggest this, so that when He ‘knocks,’ we may “open to Him immediately” Lke 12:36,37,44–richest promise in the Bible…
