“The Time is Fulfilled; the Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand; Repent & Believe the Gospel” in a New Big Picture!

May 28, 2016

Please consider how Christ’s words apply now with new meaning—with high reward or serious loss if we shrug off.

#1. The Bible has many lessons and in the end-time, they superimpose or reapply. For example, when Christ said, the time is fulfilled, it’s a different time now. God gives us six days and 6,000 years to do our work, but 50 jubilees with historic biblical dating and the papal visits intersecting three Bible timelines support the 6,000 years as complete. http://bit.ly/1UHgknC  For those who don’t follow timelines, “when-then” signs also show it, http://bit.ly/1n0n01M  In addition to these, 12 men in history have believed 2016 may bring us to the endtimes: http://bit.ly/25jBlXL

#2. There’s a 7-year ending like Joseph’s famine, the king ate grass for 7 years–Dan 4, 7 days in Jericho’s conquest, blowing a trumpet for a trip each day (six trumpets in Rev 8, 9) and 7 trips on 7th day like 7 last plagues. God gives His side power for 1260 days after which the beast has power for 42 months (Rev 11:3-7; 13:5) “As the Father sent Me, so send I you,” We may now have three years till the night comes when no man can work, even as Christ was taken at midnight in the midst of His 70th week. As Israel lost their sovereignty and were under Rome, we may see
a parallel with a
US civil war for Constitutional rights and the loss of freedom in martial law~Rome in Christ’s time.

#3. “The kingdom of heaven is at hand,” Mark 1:15. So it is now, but with an added dimension. He said it is within you, blessed are the poor in spirit, the meek, the merciful. This can be so for us also like when the disciples asked if Christ would restore the kingdom to Israel in Acts 1:6. He said, “It is not for you to know the times and seasons…” Paul said, we know them perfectly…“the day of the Lord comes when they shall say ‘Peace & safety.” 1Thess 5:2,3

Israel was impacted last year when six nations signed a ‘peace and safety’ nuclear treaty with Iran.’ Their breach of the treaty and hostility to Israel may come in the spring soon. (2Sam 11:1; Zech 14:2; Dan 9:25 offer insights)

#4. In looking for a kingdom like the disciples, we should see that Israel became a kingdom when God took them through calamity (midnight cry, Exod 12:29; Matt 25:6) to a covenant that made them His kingdom, Exod 19:5,6. In doing so, He had dominion through His laws—king—domionion. We will need to come through calamity and
be ready to make a covenant, but this time we have a better opportunity to understand what God wants from us. Ellen White’s last definition of the church is a “covenant-keeping people” PK 714 shows it’s a huge opportunity.

#5. “Repent.” “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul.” Ps 19:7. The New Covenant Promise to write His law in our hearts has a latter-day context, Jer 30:24; 31:1. We won’t be ready to go to heaven without it being fulfilled to us, so there is a deeper repentance than we see now, and a new meaning of law for many who think it’s the 10 Commandments–they were the “testimony.” “Law” comes from the Hebrew word, torah, it’s the five books
of Moses with the statutes, judgments and case histories to show how God applied the law, Mal 4:4,5; Matt 17:11. These texts offer one aspect of what Christ said was to be restored before He comes. We are to repair the breach…

#6. Believe the Gospel.” Throughout history, the good news has been different. Noah offered flood insurance.
The good news to Abraham was real estate. Moses offered freedom from bondage. Christ offered freedom from sin. For us, it’s better than any of those because it is ALL of those! “As the days of Noah” we can be spared widespread destruction and loss of life.
Better than the land for Abraham, “in My Father’s house are many mansions.” Jn 14:1-3

#7. The gospel—good news, is seen in the wedding parables. If we understand them, “He will make [us] ruler over all that He has,” Lk 12:32-48. God said He was married to Israel (Jer 3:14) but He got an ignorant bride. This must not happen to Christ. We must be ready, “that when He comes and knocks, [we] may open unto Him immediately.” This can only happen if we have previously considered the topics necessary for our covenant (marriage) with Him. They’re marked for end-times by a 7-fold emphasis, like Revelation is a book of 7’s. If the reader desires to be ruler over all that He has, we need to know the basis of our covenant, like His name, His laws, ‘the book of the covenant.’

Please visit http://GodsName1stSeal.wordpress.com for the 1st seal. A link at the bottom takes you to the 2nd seal etc All of this to the intent that we may play a biblical role as Christ for 3 years, ready for a ‘cut off’ in midst of the last week (Dan 9) as world events fit what God declared from the beginning, Isa 46:10. Genesis in reverse = Revelation.

All three wedding parables show a sudden event beyond which it is too late to get ready. Matt 22 is about inviting others to a (spiritual) feast, as link above. Matt 25:6 is about a ‘sudden unlooked-for calamity’ as fell on Egypt with a ‘midnight cry.’ COL 412. Luke 12:32-48 is about “ruler over all that He has” or beaten with stripes if we aren’t ready.

Pope Francis, Jubilee Timelines: Good News and Bad

April 6, 2016

Summary: Pope Francis’ UN visit last fall intersected three biblical timelines with end-time significance. They include the jubilee cycles (good news) and Peter’s comment that 1000 years are as a day with an impending time of judgment.

Pope Francis’ timing for his UN address had awesome significance; the papal UN visits mark the jubilee of jubilees and signal a time of judgment that some Christians call the tribulation:

#1. The 4th Commandment (eliminated from schools–the average person has little understanding of this all-time best-seller) says that God gives man six days to do his work, with the 7th day as a Sabbath, a memorial to God’s Creation of the world in six days. A system of sevens re-enforced this for Israel in Leviticus 25 where they worked the land for six years and rested it during a sabbatical year.

After seven sabbatical years, on the Day of Atonement, jubilee was proclaimed as slaves were released and debts were cancelled in the 50th year. We might wonder if debts will be cancelled in an impending collapse.

The jubilee year was also the first year of the next sequence so that jubilees came every 49 years. The 70-week prophecy (70 x 7) of Daniel 9 (490 years) spanned 10 jubilees (70 x 7 = 49 x 10) and pointed also to the Messiah.

That prophecy began with a jubilee event in 457 BC when Artaxerxes gave Israelites freedom to leave Persia and to rebuild Jerusalem. The 490 years ended in 34 AD (no year “0”).

Forty more jubilees of 49 years bring us to 1994-95—the jubilee (50th) of jubilees from 457 BC, and in 1995, Pope John Paul II spoke to the UN General Assembly, and it was on the Day of Atonement.

Most Jews would not recognize that fact because they use astronomy to mark the new month when the moon is in conjunction with the sun and it cannot be seen. In Bible times, the thin crescent in the western sky after sunset was counted as the new moon and beginning of the new month.

#2. Using the visible crescent, the papal visits to the UN were on the Day of Atonement, both in 1995 and 2015 and it introduces a 2nd timeline because 20 jubilees (20 x 49) = 980 years with 20 extra years in a 1000 years. With 20 years between papal visits on the Day of Atonement, 2015 marked the end of 6,000 years from Creation and bring us to what St. Peter said not to ignore–

1000 years are as a day…God is not slack [the Greek word, braduno, means no tarrying or delay]  the day of the Lord will come.” (2Peter 3:8-10)  If there is no tarrying or delay, we should expect a time of judgment to begin this spring.

#3. A 3rd timeline occurred when 50 thousand Christians accepted Baptist Wm Miller’s message of impending judgment, based on a misunderstanding of Daniel and ‘the Bridegroom comes,’ (they thought it was a rapture), they suffered a Great Disappointment in 1844.

This was typified by John’s ‘bitter belly’ when he ate the little book of Daniel in the 10th of Revelation, but John was told to ‘prophesy again,’ which means those same messages will fit later, but when?

The context of the judgment in Daniel 7 is the key. The context before and after the judgment is the ‘great words’ of the little horn which Protestant reformers said was the papacy. In 1844 the pope had no great words. Napoleon took the pope prisoner and he died in exile.

But in 2015, the pope had ‘great words’ for the UN General Assembly on the Day of Atonement. With this missing ingredient from 1844 now satisfied, the Angel’s words to John, ‘Prophesy again’ fit. A time of judgment is impending and it is also good news for Christians who believe ‘the Bridegroom comes.’

Christ’s wedding parables offer high destiny for readiness and understanding but serious loss for failure. This begs a better understanding but it’s beyond the scope of this release. Readers can get more information at website, http://MayJudgmentDay.com

For those who have difficulty with math, God gave some ‘when-then’ signs that also point to this spring for huge events. They may be considered at http://bit.ly/1n0n01M

Ellen White’s Warning to All Seventh-day Adventists

March 11, 2016

General Conference leaders voted a hierarchical church structure as when the Papacy was made. PT Magan, GC Bulletin, 1903, p 150.

Ellen White’s response was clear: “How is the faithful city become an harlot? My Father’s house is made a house of merchandise, a place whence the divine presence and glory have departed.” 8Testimonies, p 250. She had previously dreamed of church leaders becoming Catholic in 1Testimonies, p 577. 

Two years later she wrote, “The great apostasy, which is developing and increasing and waxing stronger, will continue to do so until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout.” Spec Testimonies Series B, 1905

Ellen White seemed to know they would burn her Series B warning, so she warned us again in her comment on Jeremiah 36, where the king burned Jeremiah’s scroll: “This chapter is a record of historical events that will be repeated. Let all who desire to receive warning read carefully.” 4BC 1159.

In 1988, BT Anderson, a retired custodian of the General Conference said that he was asked to stoke up the furnace in the basement–they had some extra books that weren’t needed, and they tossed them in the furnace. He choked the fire out after they left and printed them himself.

If Mrs. White was correct, church members are in grave danger of staying in the church beyond the point “when judgment begins at the house of God” (1Pet 4:17) and it is clear that judgment has fallen as she saw in her earthquake vision at Loma Linda, a school she founded for medical missionary training with natural remedies, but church leaders taught pharmacology to become an accredited medical school against her will. She said, “Many lives were blotted out…It seemed that…Judgment day had come.” 9T 93.

Until then, we should be proclaiming a time of judgment as supported by five ‘when-then’ signs last year. Current church leadership at the top and several levels seems unwilling to address the issues. For a better understanding of readiness, please visit http://bit.ly/1MtyX9r  It shows how to be part of the 144,000 and is so important, that if you don’t understand it, call me for questions or discussion, 928 583 7543

Obama Seen As President At Christ’s Coming In SDA Pastor’s Dream 30 Years Ago–It Could Be!

February 27, 2016

Summary: A pastor dreamed of an African-American president with Obama’s description, well-liked at first, but he became a ‘terrible dictator.’ The dream was not shared widely because it seemed impossible in the 1980’s. (Google or click ‘Jack Darnall’s Dream‘)

Jack Darnall, a Seventh-day Adventist pastor was running a ‘prepper’ Bible prophecy course 36 years ago in California when this author met him. Darnall is deceased but his dream describes a tall, thin, close-cropped hair and large eared, black president who became a ‘terrible dictator.’ We look now at how he could be president when Christ comes.

Five ‘when-then’ events from 2015 signal the end-time ‘day of the Lord,’ to begin this spring, based on the solar eclipse followed by a blood moon two weeks later on Passover in 2015. The Bible says, “The sun shall be darkened and the moon turned to blood before [paniym means facing] the day of the Lord.” in the last verses of Joel’s 2nd chapter. Those signal events of 2015 face this year.

“The day of the Lord” brings bad news for Israel because the 14th of Zechariah shows it linked to hostile forces surrounding Jerusalem with houses rifled and women raped. Additional basis for this is explained at http://bit.ly/1Kk22zW If we see this at Passover, a biblical time of judgment, it signals Christ’s sayings in the last half of Matthew’s 24th chapter as follows:

“Learn a parable of a fig tree.” It was a tree that had leaves but no fruit. It represented the Jewish nation, professing to be a godly nation, but they lacked the fruits of righteousness. In an acted parable, Christ cursed the fig tree and it withered in the 21st chapter of Matthew. But how about the United States now? We profess to be a godly nation, but Roe v Wade showed the US more like Egypt that killed infants.

God took Israel from Egypt to a covenant relationship, later saying, “I am married to you,” and it’s in that sense Christians should understand the wedding parables and God’s protection of His covenant-keeping people in the land of the covenant as the context of the New Covenant Promise shows in the 31st of Jeremiah and affirmed by the apostle Paul in his 3rd chapter to the Galatians, last verse.

“As the days of Noah,” we may expect a sudden calamity that causes many deaths and devastates our nation–it’s probably an earthquake that does this because “the day of the Lord” is linked to an earthquake in several passages and the apostle Paul said it comes with “sudden destruction” when they say ‘Peace and safety’ (Iran Nuclear Treaty) in the 5th chapter of Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians.

“Then shall two be in the field. One shall be taken and the other left.” This was the basis of fictional books and movies on a sudden rapture, but it ignores the context at the end of the 17th chapter of Luke where the disciples asked, Where [taken]? Christ said, Where the body is, there will the vultures be. This reference by Christ may be about martial law as a result of the earthquake (previous paragraph) and Obama’s executive orders to stay in power rather than have free elections.

“The goodman, if he had known, would have watched, and not suffered his house to be broken by the thief.” The house being broken supports the idea of an earthquake and Christ said if we don’t watch, He will come as a thief to us in the 3rd chapter of Revelation. It is this coming of Christ that could fit Jack Darnall’s dream, even this spring.

“The evil servant thinks his lord delays his coming and begins to smite fellow servants.” We see Islam smiting Christians, but Christ’s meaning could include the prophetic picture of a UN New World Order. The 24th chapter of Matthew ends with “Then shall the kingdom be like 10 virgins,” a parable that implies we are asleep with our lights out re the wedding parables that are poorly understood, but explained in an article here.

Seven ‘When-Then’ Signs for a Historic Message; the Angel said, “Prophecy again.” Will We?

December 23, 2015

Summary: Millerite pioneers misunderstood the nature of the judgment they proclaimed in 1844 and also the nature of the wedding in Christ’s parable. They thought they would be raptured and the world would burn. Their misunderstanding was typified by John’s ‘bitter-belly’ experience in Revelation 10:10, but the Angel told John, “prophesy again.” This means at some point, “the Bridegroom comes” in a time of judgment like He did in Egypt when He took Israel to a covenant and later said “I am married to you.”

Signs suggest that now is the time and we are the people, but we need a better understanding to play this prophetic role. Seven ‘when-then’ signs suggest a time of impending judgment announced in the 1st angel’s message.1 The Greek word for judgment is krisis—crisis! As we look at our world, we might not even need seven signs to see how “on target” the message is. Nevertheless, here are seven signs in the order they unfolded:

  1. “The sun shall be darkened…” A rare solar eclipse on the spring equinox, March 20, 2015 began the biblical year that starts with spring, Exodus 12:2.
  2. “and the moon turned to blood before the day of the Lord,” Joel 2:31. The blood moon 2 weeks later on Passover was a memorial of when Israel put blood on their doorpost, The word for “before” ispaniym, It means “facing,” and the events of 2015 are facing end-times.
  3. “When they say ‘Peace and safety,’ sudden destruction comes…”2Seven nations (God’s endorsement of a sign?) signed the Iran Nuclear Treaty and Iran has already violated it in testing a rocket, according to UN officials.
  4. “When you see the abomination… standing where it ought not.”4The Bible also calls homosexuality an abomination, and with Supreme Court approval, it was “standing where it ought not.” Christ said end-times would be “as it was in the days of Lot” when it rained fire the day that Lot fled Sodom.5Could God be waiting for us to get out of the cities? Will He wait indefinitely beyond a reasonable warning? Shouldn’t we participate in giving a warning (1stangel’s message)? If we see trouble and don’t warn, God may hold us responsible…Ezekiel 33:6.
  5. Early believers understood Christ’s reference to the abomination as military and when the Roman army came to Jerusalem, they fled and were spared the siege by Titus in 70 AD. But US military also stood “where it ought not” with JADE HELM covering the southwest, July 15-Sept 15. Some say it’s a drill in anticipation of martial law when constitutional rights could end.
  6. Early Christians saw the idolatrous standard of the Roman army that included emblems of their sun god planted outside Jerusalem as a sign to flee. We saw Rome “standing where it ought not” with an appeal that included “Sunday” as part of the “great words” to the US Congress.
  7. September 25, 20115, Pope Francis had ‘great words’ for the UN General Assembly on the Day of Atonement, the same time thought to initiate the judgment in Daniel 7:10, but pioneers overlooked the context in 1844. The pope had been taken prisoner by Napoleon and he died in exile, a ‘deadly wound,’ Rev 13:3. In 1844, the pope didn’t have much to talk about, but on the Day of Atonement, 2015, the “great words” suggest the missing ingredient of 1844 is now satisfied. The Movement of Destiny endorsed in Rev 10:10 must “prophesy again,”

Additional signs include Daniel 8: Alexander’s victory over the Medes and Persians was a fulfillment of Daniel’s vision, but Gabriel said “the vision (chazown of ram and goat) is “at the time of the end.”3 This supports the “unsealed” meaning of Daniel as having a double application—once in history and again in “the time of the end” with a ram pushing west as militant Islam (Iraq, Iran/ISIS) Will we learn from Europe?

After the pope signed a concordat with Hitler to make the world Catholic when he won the war, there was so much protest when President Truman tried to appoint an ambassador to the Vatican, that it couldn’t be done.

But when President Reagan did so, Adventism “consented by silence”–no protest and we did so again when Pope Francis came to Congress in contrast to a Catholic congressman who saw it wasn’t right and boycotted the pope’s visit!6

This brings us to consider the contented condition of the seventh, lukewarm church of Laodicea. Its name, laos, means people and dicea or decree–judging, or “people in a time of judgment.” For the above reasons, we become God’s people if we will “prophesy again” of His impending judgments.

F.D. Nichol’s book, The Midnight Cry, shows another message given by SDA pioneers in 1844. “The Bridegroom comes” was part of their disappointment when He didn’t come as they expected. This message also should be included in “prophesy again…”

To see the latest article showing how the pope’s visits also signaled the end of when 1,000 years are as a day that we should not ignore (2Peter 3:8-10) please see #2 at https://thebridegroomcomes.wordpress.com/2016/08/24/every-christian-needs-to-read-this/

Four Fresh Facts Begging SDAs to Correct a Misunderstanding

November 27, 2015

1. SDA pioneers believed that the Judgment in Daniel 7:9,10 began on the Day of Atonement in 1844.

2. They overlooked the context of the “great words” in the verse before and after–Daniel 7:8,11,20,25. (The “little horn” was the papacy that grew out of the Roman Empire, the 4th beast in Daniel 7.)

3. Napoleon took the pope prisoner in 1798 and he died in exile. The horn had no great words in 1844.

4. But in 2015, ON the Day of Atonement, the pope had great words for Congress on Sept 24, the 10th day from when the 7th new moon was seen. Dan 7:9-14 is being fulfilled NOW. Ellen White says Daniel 7:13 is the same event as the coming of the Bridegroom to the marriage in Great Controversy, p 426.

The means there is a transition from “the time of the dead that they should be judged” (Rev 11:18 ) to the judgment of the living and it will have life or death events as in Daniel 1-6.

Rightly understood, this enables us to do what the Angel told John after his bitter belly– “prophesy again!” Rev 10:11. This information means that the 1st angel’s message of judgment should be proclaimed with the “midnight cry”– “the Bridegroom comes!” as pioneers did in 1844, Great Controversy, p 398.

The message of judgment is a warning, and it is balanced by Good News–the Bridegroom comes to deliver us. “Daniel” means God is my Judge; God delivered him, Daniel 1-6. The book of Judges also shows those judges as deliverers.

God came as judge to Egypt but He came as Bridegroom to Israel. There was a “midnight cry” (Matt 25:6; Exod 12:29,30) God delivered Israel and they became His bride when they covenanted to be His kingdom; see Exod 19:5,6 and Jer 3:14.

We misunderstand the wedding parables if we think they are about a rapture or 2nd coming in the sky. They are about a covenant relationship that we must have with Christ.

Ellen White’s last definition of the church is a “covenant-keeping people…and to them will be fulfilled all the covenant promises made by Jehovah to that ancient people.” PK 713,714. This includes the New Covenant Promise to write His laws in our hearts—we must have this before He comes in the sky.

If we are faithful to the covenant that we must make with Him, it will preserve us through end-times when He will defend us as He did Israel, see Exod 34:10. We need a better understanding of the wedding parables, but first, here are five brief reasons why judgment is impending–five “when-then” signs for End-Times to begin in 2016.

  1. Signs of Decay. The Supreme Court redefined marriage for some. Christ said end-times would be as the days of Lot. Destruction fell when Lot fled Sodom. Luke 17:29.
  2. Signs of Destruction. Six nations ended a 12-year standoff in a nuclear agreement with Iran, and now Iran is not agreeing with what they agreed. “The day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night, for when they say ‘Peace and safety,’ sudden destruction comes…” 1Thessalonians 5:2,3.
  3. Signs of War. Gabriel said the horns on the ram in Daniel’s vision were kings of Media and Persia, but those areas are now Iraq and Iran. Gabriel also said, “the vision is at the time of the end,” Daniel 8:17. Some best-selling authors are now seeing an end-time application for the book of Daniel, as the unsealed meaning! Daniel saw a ram was pushing west, north and south, Dan 8:5. West is Europe and its invasion by Islam is apocalyptic.
  4. Signs of Martial Law. In Christ’s warning of end-times, he said to flee “when you see the abomination… standing where it ought not, Mark 13:14. The early believers understood that reference to military and when the Roman army came to Jerusalem, they fled and were spared the siege by Titus in 70 AD. But now, US military stood “where it ought not” in a drill (JADE HELM) covering the southwest USA last summer.
  5. The sun shall be darkened and the moon turned to blood before the day of the Lord,” Joel 2:31. The word for “before” is paniym, which means “facing.” This suggests that end-times are impending for 2016, based on all of the above signs in 2015.

More signs could be given, but this should be enough to see that judgment is impending on America. But doesn’t the Bible say, “Judgment must begin at the house of God”? (1Peter 4:17).

Before looking at the wedding message from Christ’s parables, please consider reasons why the Adventist Church will receive judgment

  1. The church was called into existence to proclaim the 3 angels’ messages. Unwillingness to proclaim the time of judgment to warn others may mean that judgment falls on the church in order to still convey the message to the world. 
  2. Rightly understanding the church’s rejection of truth from 1888 till now, it deserves judgment and further reasons may be considered here– http://TheBridegroomComes.wordpress.com 

Three Reasons to Leave the Adventist Church & One Reason to Stay…for Now*

November 5, 2015

#1. It’s hard for us to believe Christ’s description, “blind and naked,” of His last lukewarm church in Revelation 3:15-20 applies to us. Truthfully, His words are addressed to the aggelos, or messenger. It’s really the pastors or church leadership that God holds responsible, but the church rarely rises above its leaders.

Because Christ’s call to come out of the false systems that include medicine, education, government and religion, all Christians, and especially Seventh-day Adventists, should take a deeper look at what these messages mean for today.

#2. In her book on Christ’s life, Ellen White titled the chapter on the fig tree as ‘A Doomed People’. It was about the Jewish nation then, like the fig tree flaunting its pretentious leaves but lacking fruit. Christ cursed the tree as a lesson against empty or shallow religion. “So it is now,” wrote Ellen White from Australia where brethren sent her to get rid of her agitation for righteousness by faith, DA 588.

She returned to appeal for a reorganization of the General Conference in 1901. They voted her request, but never carried it out and in 1903, they voted a hierarchical structure that GC President Wilson said in court was like the Roman Catholic Church. (Merikay Silver v PPPA).

Ellen White’s response to 1903 was, “How is the faithful city become an harlot? My Father’s house is made a house of merchandise; a place whence the divine presence and glory have departed.” (Testimonies for the Church, Vol 8, pg 250).

Two years later she wrote, “the great apostasy which is developing…will continue to do so until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout.” Special Testimonies, Series B, #7, 1905. But Special Testimonies, Series B was burned in the basement of the General Conference. BT Anderson, custodian was told they had extra copies they didn’t need, to stoke up the furnace. After he retired, he said they burned her books.

Church leaders cite Ellen White that we should not call the church “Babylon,” but she later wrote, “The first, second and third angels’ messages will need to be repeated. The call will be given to the church, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins.” Manuscript 92a, 1898. There’s more than can be said here.

Ellen White played a key role in Loma Linda’s development. At one point, when the brethren had no money, her check for $35,000 mailed from Australia months earlier arrived on the date that payment was due.

Ellen White envisioned Loma Linda as a place where thousands were to be trained, not as professional doctors and nurses but as gospel medical missionaries going from home to home, giving simple treatments, praying for the sick, singing gospel songs and claiming Bible promises.

It never happened. She said drugs do not cure disease. Pharmacology was not to be taught. Church leaders seeking accreditation were told “no” twice but after a third trip to see her when she refused to see them, they reported to the committee that “she didn’t say no,” and everything changed as Loma Linda taught pharmacology and graduated licensed MD’s instead of a system of natural healing she envisioned.

3. Medical care is now a leading cause of death due to Adverse Drug Reactions from drugs “properly prescribed and administered.” Journal of AMA, 4-15-1998. SDA hospitals are essentially no different than Catholic hospitals that have the same medical care, diet, TV and a generic chaplain to say a prayer.

National Geographic featured Loma Linda in their cover story on longevity, Nov, 2005, but SDA health has nothing to do with medical care—it’s what Ellen White wrote about food that has made Adventists healthy, a message we’ve conveyed so poorly that NIH spent millions to discover why we live about 7 extra years.

The world would also be wondering why our educational system is so successful if we had stayed with the counsels of Ellen White instead of seeking accreditation and doing what they said we needed. Now we must teach Jesuit Spiritual Formation to ministers to keep our accreditation—what a disaster!

In addition to all of the above, top General Conference leaders hold to several serious errors.

1. The hierarchical church structure condemned by Ellen White in 1903 (above)
2. The name, “Seventh-day Adventist” was trademarked so the GC could sue any church that didn’t meet their standards” which include paying the tithe to them so that it has control over what is done and said in all “SDA” churches.
3. Millions of dollars were raised under President Ted Wilson for The Great Controversy to be used in sharing our message, but after a severe editing, it hardly mentioned Luther, the pope or the sins of Babylon, and it has such fine print that some say it’s really The Great Hoax, not the new title, The Great Hope.

4. When President Truman tried to appoint an ambassador to the Vatican, there was such a protest that he could not do so. But when President Reagan did so, the GC under Neal Wilson gave their consent by silence and it’s been downhill for America since then, continuing under Ted Wilson with NOTHING said as the pope came to address the US Congress.

5. Ellen White foresaw the Catholic changes in our church. She “dreamed that [she] was in Battle Creek looking out from the side glass at the door and saw a company marching up to the house, two and two. They looked stern and determined. I knew them well and turned to open the parlor door to receive them, but thought I would look again. The scene was changed.
“The company now presented the appearance of a Catholic procession. One bore in his hand a cross, another a reed. And as they approached, the one carrying a reed made a circle around the house, saying three times: “This house is proscribed. The goods must be confiscated. They have spoken against our holy order.” Terror seized me, and I ran through the house, out of the north door, and found myself in the midst of a company, some of whom I knew, but I dared not speak a word to them for fear of being betrayed.” 1Testiminonies p 578. http://egwtext.whiteestate.org/publication.php?pubtype=Book&bookCode=1T&lang=en&pagenumber=578&m=1&paragraphReferences=1

She “knew them well,” but then it became a Catholic procession. Is that from her time to ours? Destiny depends on our understanding of the three angels’ messages, and those in the “blind” church are in grave danger.

SDA pioneers believed the judgment scene in Daniel 7:9,10 was on the Day of Atonement in 1844. But they overlooked the context of “great words.” Napoleon had taken the pope prisoner and he died in exile. The little horn had NO great words in 1844, but in 2015, ON the Day of Atonement, the pope, speaking to US Congress, had “great words” mentioned four times in Dan 7:8,11,20,25.

SDA pioneers suffered a Great Disappointment (Google) typified by the “bitter belly” of John when he ate the little book of Daniel and was told he “must prophesy again,” Rev 10:11. SDA leaders have no interest in “prophesy again.”

They don’t understand how the messages that didn’t fit 1844 now fit as judgment comes to the living with life and death issues as in Daniel 1-6. But because of their reluctance to proclaim the message of Judgment (Rev 14:7), we may expect that judgment will befall the church in order to convey the message to the world, much like the Jews became a rejected people after 70 AD.

*But this is not the time to leave the church. We should do what we can to awaken others who are represented as asleep with lights out in Matthew 25:5. We are coming to verse 6, a midnight cry that Ellen White likened to “a sudden and unlooked-for calamity.” COL 412.

“Judgment must begin at the house of God.” 1Pet 4:17. It will convey the message, “the Bridegroom comes! Go ye OUT to meet Him.” Matt 25:6.

Please read The Bridegroom Comes!  to understand how to be ready next spring. Ellen White understood the execution of judgment on the living who are out of compliance with the law, even as Moses faced death for non-compliance in Exodus 4:24. Adventists are similarly out of compliance.

Mrs. White said there would never again be a message based on [prophetic] time. But “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the TIME of His judgment is come” is not based on time prophecy; it’s based on LAW—please consider how in the next article, The Bridegroom Comes!
