The Little Time of Trouble is HERE NOW! The Dark Ages are NOW being REPEATED from March 19, 2013 to September 19, 2016 – to be cut short in Righteousness! by 25 days (Aug 5, 2016)

The 42 months or 1,260 days is also known as the 3.5 years of the “LITTLE TIME OF TROUBLE” when in the WILDERNESS (obscure) the 144,000 (Bride of Christ/Mt. Zion/New Jerusalem/Zechariah 8:2) and their spiritual children (5 wise virgins) being FED truth so they will be able to STAND during the time of JACOBS trouble without a mediator (those who are martyred today for Christ who live and give the 3 angels messages will be raised back to life about 15 days before Christ returns the 2nd time). The Dark Ages WILL BE REPEATED, only in 1,260 LITERAL DAYS instead of the day for a year which occurred 538 AD to 1798 AD. The little time of trouble started March 19, 2013 when Jesuit Pope Francis the eighth and final King of the Papacy was coronated and he started his reign according to Rev 13:5. His reign lasts for 42 months or 1,260 literal days, or 3.5 years which would make it come to September 19, 2016. Then the time of Jacobs trouble starts and should last for the space of 1/2 hour or 15 days, then Jesus will return.

Laodicean Condition Claimed by the General Conference Of Seventh-day Adventists

“Today we hesitate to claim we’re the remnant; but as for Laodicea, that’s us! Us alone!...No other Christian group vies with us for the dubious privilege of being identified with it….claiming exclusive rights to Laodicea is not politically incorrect. So, unchallenged, we’ve become anchored in the view that Seventh-day Adventists are the sole group envisioned in the apocalyptic concept of that term.” Adventist Review, August 28, 2008, p 5.

Image result for the church is in heaven in the body of Christ

The Laodicean’s Lament
My hope is built on nothing less,
Than my dear Church, and it’s success!
No Matter what my Church may do,
It cannot fall—its going through!
My hope is built on nothing more,
For me its heaven’s open door.
So I rejoice—let others wail;
It’s going through—it cannot fail!
I do not need to watch and wait;
To me it stands as heaven’s gate;
So I’ll support her, come what may—
She’ll see me through on that glad day!
O Could it be—and to my shame—
God’s church and mine are not the same?
God’s church fulfill His sacred plan;
My Church reveals the stamp of man!
My Church slept on—that day at last
Did come, and so the harvest passed.
I stuck with her at any cost—
God’s church went through, but left me lost!

It’s hard for us to believe Christ’s description, “blind and naked,” of His last lukewarm, Laodicean, foolish virgin, “stony ground hearers” church in Revelation 3:15-20 applies to the 501c3 modern SDA organization, but it does. Just like Queen Vashti refused to show off her beauty at the command of the King, her husband, SDA’s have refused to show off the beautiful truths in their daily choices (Bride making herself ready) to become converted and be doers and not just hearers of the great truths given to us in 1841-1846.

Unless divine power (character=thoughts and feelings=a living Epistle/A sermon in shoes/living the truth we know in our daily choices) is brought into the experience of the people of God, false theories and erroneous ideas will take minds captive, Christ and His Righteousness will be dropped out of the experience of many, and their faith will be without power or life. Such will not have a daily living experience of the love of God in the heart; and if they do not zealously repent, they will be among those who are represented by the Laodiceans, who will be spewed out of the mouth of the Lord.E.G.W., Review, September 3, 1889.

As the Jews (AKA “501c3 non-profit/tax-exempt ADVENTIST members TODAY) departed from God, and failed to make the righteousness of Christ their own by faith, the Sabbath lost its significance to them. Satan was seeking to exalt himself and to draw men away from Christ, and he worked to pervert the Sabbath, because it is the sign of the power of Christ. The Jewish leaders accomplished the will of Satan by surrounding God’s rest day with burdensome requirements. In the days of Christ the Sabbath had become so perverted that its observance reflected the character of selfish and arbitrary men rather than the character of the loving heavenly Father. The rabbis virtually represented God as giving laws which it was impossible for men to obey. They led the people to look upon God as a tyrant, and to think that the observance of the Sabbath, as He required it, made men hard-hearted and cruel. It was the work of Christ to clear away these misconceptions. Although the rabbis followed Him with merciless hostility, He did not even appear to conform to their requirements, but went straight forward, keeping the Sabbath according to the law of God.” The Desire of Ages, p. 283.4

Laodicean” is a denominational approved spiritual condition claimed by modern Seventh-day Adventist members today:

When the finished product carries the stamp of a standard publishing house, it bears denominational approval. It is then a denominational, not a private, publication. It has a measure of authority and dignity not otherwise possible.” Ministry, December, 1948, p 23, Review and Herald Publishing Association.

Remember the Achan principle? If one person has SIN in their lives the WHOLE CAMP pays the price. Like all the members of the SDA church will pay the price of sin. The Lord God of Israel would not permit that such a state of things should exist. Achan had thought that his sin was secret and hidden from all human eyes … and they ran unto the tent, and behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it. Read more about that story and how it applies to SDA’s here.

The prophet declares, “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.” Brightness, glory, and power are to be connected with the third angel’s message (Revelation 14), and conviction will follow wherever it is preached in demonstration of the Spirit.

     How will any of our brethren know when this Light shall come to the people of God? As yet, we certainly have not seen the Light that answers to this description. God has Light for His people, and all who will accept it will see the sinfulness of remaining in a lukewarm condition . . . !” – Review & Herald, April 1, 1890.

If the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists claim to be Laodicean (indifferent to Christ/truth), what does that mean for YOU, a member of this worldwide Laodicean SDA church organization? 

To start, what does “Laodicean” mean? Laodicean Definition: A person with a indifferent, halfhearted or lukewarm attitude especially in matters of religion.

LUKEWARM! What does it mean to be a LUKEWARM (tepid) Seventh-day Adventist “Christian”? (of a person, attitude, or action) unenthusiastic. (“lukewarm, tepid”) Synonyms: indifferent, cool, halfhearted, apathetic, unenthusiastic, tepid, perfunctory, noncommittal, lackadaisical, unenthused;

LUKEWARM (Laodicean) means to be indifferent or non-committed.

So to be Laodicean means to be LUKEWARM. Let’s see what ELSE it means to be LAODICEAN:

Ellen White labeled the Laodicean church as the foolish virgin church:

“The state of the Church represented by the foolish virgins, is also spoken of as the Laodicean state.” E. G. White, Review and Herald Articles, Vol. 2, 420.

This is, then, the final message [the Amen] to the 501c3 SDA church before the close of probation. The description given of the indifferent Laodiceans is fearful and startling. Nevertheless, it cannot be denied, for the Witness is ‘faithful and true’.

Let’s see what the Bible says is the message to Laodicea or rather WHAT happens to Laodicean (lukewarm) church members:

Revelation 3:16 “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”

Revelation 3:15 “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!”

Revelation 3:17 “You say, ‘I am rich (in truth); I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.”

COIN of “repentance”

REPENTANCE AND OBEDIENCE ARE THE PRICE OF DELIVERANCE FROM THE ENEMY!

Why Christ spews the lukewarm Laodicean foolish virgin out of His mouth

“To those who are indifferent at this time Christ’s warning is: ‘Because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of My mouth.’ Revelation 3:16. The figure of spewing out of His mouth means that He cannot offer up your prayers or your expressions of love to God. he cannot endorse your teaching of His word or your spiritual work in anywise. He cannot present your religious exercises with the request that grace be given you.” 6 Testimonies, p. 408

“As soon as the views of these people were crossed, they manifested a stubborn, self-righteous spirit that rejected all instruction. Though professing great humility, they were boastful in their sophistry of sanctification, and resisted all appeals to reason. We felt that all our efforts to convince them of their error were useless, as they took the position that they were not learners but teachers.” (LS88 p. 209)
Video: SDA Church Unites With Papacy – So Sad – SDA church stepped off the upward path to Heaven in 1852 – became Laodicean foolish virgins and have waxed stronger and stronger in apostasy ever since.

Who are the Laodiceans?

“The message to the Laodiceans is applicable to SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS who have great light and have not walked in the light.” (2 Selected Messages p. 66)

Laodicea does not represent the true Adventists, it represents Adventists who have not walked in the light, nominal Adventists, or professed Adventists.  Joseph Bates once wrote this plainly…

Joseph Bates sardis Philadelphia Laodicea nominal adventists“First part, SARDIS, the nominal church or Babylon. Second part, Laodicea, the nominal Adventist. Third part, Philadelphia, the only true church of God on earth, for they ask to be translated to the city of God. Rev.iii,12; Heb.xii,22–24. In the name of Jesus, I exhort you again to flee from the Laodiceans, as from Sodom and Gomorrah. Their teachings are false and delusive; and lead to utter destruction. Death! DEATH!! eternal DEATH!!! is on their track. Remember Lot’s wife.” JOSEPH BATES. Fairhaven, Mass.,  Nov. 10, 1850. (The Adventist Review and Sabbath Herald, November 1850)

We are told straightly Laodicea represents nominal Adventists, or professed Adventists.  They say they are Adventists and are not.  Having a name on your organization makes them Adventist as much as calling yourself a Jew means you are a real Jew, or saying you are Abraham’s seed, but your real father is the devil.  The true Adventist is not one which has a baptismal certificate which says he is a Seventh-day Adventist, but rather the true Adventist is one which is one inwardly, in the heart, in the spirit, whose praise is not of men, but of God.(See Rom 2:28, 29).

The bible tells the Philadelphians that there would be those who profess they are Jews and are not right before the second coming.  The bible tells us they are not God’s church, but are the “synagogue of Satan”.

Rev 3:9  Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

That was written to the church of Philadelphia, which is God’s last true church.   Ellen White identified these professed Jews in the above verse as “professed Adventists”.

“You think, that those who worship before the saint’s feet, (Rev 3:9), will at last be saved. Here I must differ with you; for God shewed me that this class were professed Adventists, who had fallen away, and “crucified to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame.” And in the “hour of temptation,” which is yet to come, to show out every one’s true character, they will know that they are forever lost; and overwhelmed with anguish of spirit, they will bow at the saint’s feet.” (EGW A Word to the Little Flock, page 12)

In this passage we are shown that the “synagogue of Satan” in Revelation 3:9 is a church and says that they are Adventist, but are not.  As Joseph Bates put it “First part, SARDIS, the nominal church or Babylon. Second part, Laodicea, the nominal Adventist. Third part, Philadelphia, the only true church of God on earth…”(The Adventist Review and Sabbath Herald, November 1850)

Philadelphia is “the only true church of God on earth” in this time.  It has been since 1844 and will be until Jesus comes and we are warned to flee out of the midst of this Laodicean church by God himself and not to look back.

Notice in the following quote that those described as the Church of Philadelphia in Revelation 3:7-13 are the 144,000, the sealed.  To be outside of this church in the time of the end, and in Laodicea will ensure that you receive the mark of the beast.

“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…Then it was that the synagogue of Satan knew that God had love us who could wash one another’s feet and salute the brethren with a holy kiss, and they worshiped at our feet.” (EGW Early Writings page 15)

Who is Laodicea?  We have learned already that Laodicea represents Adventists who have had great light and not walked in it, also, professed Adventists, or nominal Adventists.   Most who have some background on Seventh-day Adventism already understand who it is that I am talking about.  Many times we quote the papacy and allow them to speak for themselves, to expose the truth about Babylon, the little horn, as well as the first beast of Revelation.  Today there is another group who know very well who they are, but don’t understand the consequences of who they are.  It is the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, an organization that says they are Adventist and are not, an organization of “professed Adventists”.   From an article in the Adventist Review from August 2008 we read:

“Today we hesitate to claim we’re the remnant; but as for Laodicea, that’s us! Us alone!…No other Christian group vies with us for the dubious privilege of being identified with it….claiming exclusive rights to Laodicea is not politically incorrect. So, unchallenged, we’ve become anchored in the view that Seventh-day Adventists are the sole group envisioned in the apocalyptic concept of that term.” (Adventist Review, August 28, 2008, p 5.)

He is correct, just as Joseph Bates was that they are not the remnant, but they are Laodicea, and regarding this nominal Adventist organization, we have a call to give them:

Call out of the Nominal (Professed) Adventist Churches

“I saw that God has honest children among the nominal Adventists and the fallen churches, and before the plagues shall be poured out, ministers and people will be called out from these churches and will gladly receive the truth. Satan knows this; and before the loud cry of the third angel is given, he raises an excitement in these religious bodies, that those who have rejected the truth may think that God is with them. He hopes to deceive the honest and lead them to think that God is still working for the churches. But the light will shine, and all who are honest will leave the fallen churches, and take their stand with the remnant.” (Ellen White Early Writings 261).

If this is to happen just before the loud cry and the plagues being poured out, then it would be a great deception to teach that the shaking shakes people out of the General Conference.  When in fact the call will be the opposite which is “come out of those churches” before the plagues fall.

The promise is that the honest will come out of the nominal Adventist churches just before the plagues are poured out and will take their stand with the true Adventists, the Adventist Church of 1844, the one that was in existence more than nineteen years before the General Conference.

Summary:

  1. The Shaking commenced before the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists did.
  2. The Seventh-day Adventist Church existed before the General Conference did.
  3. The shaking is a message to Laodicea
  4. Laodicea represents Adventists who have not walked in the light
  5. Laodicea represents professed Adventists who are not Adventists at all.
  6. Laodicea is called “the synagogue of Satan” and not “the church of God”
  7. We are to flee out of the midst of Laodicea and the nominal Adventists and not look back or we would suffer destruction and death.
  8. Philadelphia is the true Seventh-day Adventist church of the last days.
“The Laodicean message applies to ALL who PROFESS to keep the law of God, and yet are not doers of it.” Ellen White, RH October 17, 1899, par. 3
THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN KEEP THE LAW OF GOD IS TO WORSHIP THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD AND HIS ONLY SON JESUS CHRIST; NOT THE TRINITY OF GODS. Tammuz is now called “God the Son” in the trinity of gods worshiped by 501c3 Adventists today. See 2 Cor 11:3-4 for a special warning not to worship “Another Jesus” or “Another Spirit” or preach “Another gospel”.
WHO WE WORSHIP DETERMINES OUR DESTINY. CLAIM CHRIST’S VICTORY AS YOUR VERY OWN PRIZE FROM GOD HIMSELF. DA123 “HIS (CHRIST’S) VICTORY IS OURS“.!

Jesus says that although Laodicean Adventists THINK they have the truth, they do not put the truth into practice in their daily choice of thoughts, words and actions. They don’t realize that just to SAY they are a Adventist does not save them, because they are really wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked! And because of this they are neither cold nor hot, but LUKEWARM and He does NOT like a lukewarm Christian and will SPUE LAODICEANS OUT OF HIS MOUTH! That does not sound good. Who wants a lukewarm glass of water? You spit it out and Christ will spit out the lukewarm Christian.

Laodicean also means a foolish virgin. What happens to the foolish virgins according to the Bible? Oh foolish virgin I know you not! Matthew 25:12, “But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.”

Proverbs 14:25 “A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.”

Proverbs 11:30 “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and the one who is wise saves lives.”

The spiritual condition claimed in 2008 by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists IS Laodicean. LUKEWARM, FOOLISH VIRGIN CHRISTIANS that are spued out and receive an unexpected denial, “I know you not”.

What does the Bible say happens to LUKEWARM Christians? Revelation 3:16 “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”

To be a HOT Christian means to have enthusiastic ZEAL in YOUR OWN LIFE TO OBEY CHRIST WHICH THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE the MIND or CHARACTER of CHRIST in you! INVITE CHRIST the ONLY true literal Son of the ONLY LIVING ETERNAL IMMORTAL GOD INTO YOUR HEART RIGHT NOW! Sister White says, “The coin with which you purchase the white raiment and the eyesalve is repentance.”

OUR MIND IS THE SECRET MOST HOLY PLACE of the MOST HIGH GOD AND HIS SON. OUR BODY IS TO BE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, THE ARK OF THE COVENANT. THE MIND CONSECRATED TO GOD’S SERVICE. INDIVIDUALLY GETTING HEATHEN AND PAGAN THINGS OUT OF OUR OWN LIVES. OUT OF OUR THOUGHTS, WORDS AND ACTIONS. CHRIST IS THE  the pillar of cloud OVER US and speaks to us in our minds today for those who humbly submit to Christ the law in us by desiring to happily choose right – daily choices –  and daily coming to God through Christ and saying with your whole heart:

“TAKE ME AS WHOLLY THINE. I LAY ALL MY PLANS AT THY FEET. USE ME TODAY IN THY SERVICE, ABIDE WITH ME AND LET ALL MY WORK BE WROUGHT IN THEE.” Psalms 37:4 “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

STUDY THE BIBLE WITH AN INTENSITY BEFORE YET UNKNOWN. MEMORIZE BIBLE VERSES THAT PROMISE GIFTS TO YOU AND CLAIM THEM AS YOUR VERY OWN PRIZE FROM GOD EVERY DAY! Pray the Bible verse that are ALIVE over yourself, family, friends and ENEMIES. FORGIVE YOUR ENEMIES. DO GOOD TO THOSE WHO SPITEFULLY USE YOU. PRAY FOR THEM. FOR THEY ARE HELD HOSTAGE BY SATAN. REMEMBER WE FIGHT NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES IN HIGH PLACES.

ONLY Christ can give you enthusiastic ZEAL to obey Him! To obey all Ten Commandments!

The opposite of LUKEWARM IS ZEAL!

ZEAL: great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or an objective.

Who we worship, what kind of a God we adore and praise, has tremendous consequences to our understanding of God’s love, the integrity of His character, and the power of His salvation. Satan does not want us to be on fire for God! To ZEALOUSLY REPENT AND CHANGE OUR OWN WAYS TO BE IN HARMONY WITH CHRIST’S WAYS! If we worship Satan we will be Laodicean, non-committed to Christ. To be 1/10 Christian is to be totally lost.

We cannot just put on our religion coat on Saturday when we are in church. Our fellowship is with GOD AND HIS SON. FELLOWSHIP cannot be with those who are unbelievers. A unbeliever is someone who does not practice the religion of Christ. Thinking HOLY THOUGHTS, SAYING HOLY WORDS, DOERS OF THE WORD (the language of Heaven is the Bible verses put into practice in our daily lives in what we think, say and do) We must wear the coat of Christ 24/7/365 days a week! Be in constant agreement with God! That is what it means to be PERFECT or HOLY is to be in CONSTANT AGREEMENT with God! That means we invite Christ into our minds to transform our mind to think, talk and act the Ten Commandment MIND OF GOD. Let this MIND be in you that was ALSO in Christ Jesus. The Ten Commandments are a transcript or copy of God’s MIND in Christ’s mind. The principles of God government is found in the Ten Thoughts or Ten Words or 10 Commandments of God. God’s ways are found in the Ten Commandments…and Christ perfectly followed in His Father and God’s footsteps; and so must we follow in Christ’s footsteps.

From beginning to END the Adventist movement also represents the Parable of the Ten Virgins. Ellen White warns: “Satan has COME IN with his specious temptations, and has led the professed followers of Christ away from the [PILOT] Leader (Christ), classing them with the foolish virgins.” Testimonies to Ministers, p. 130.

The class represented by the foolish virgins are not hypocrites. They have a regard for the truth, they have advocated the truth, they are attracted to those who believe the truth; but they have not yielded themselves to the Holy Spirit’s working. They have not fallen upon the Rock, Christ Jesus, and permitted their old nature to be broken up. This class are represented also by the stony-ground hearers. They receive the word with readiness, but they fail of assimilating its principles. Its influence is not abiding. The Spirit works upon man’s heart, according to his desire and consent implanting in him a new nature; but the class represented by the foolish virgins have been content with a superficial work. They do not know God. They have not studied His character; they have not held communion with Him; therefore they do not know how to trust, how to look and live. Their service to God degenerates into a form. “They come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as My people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.” Ezekiel 33:31. The apostle Paul points out that this will be the special characteristic of those who live just before Christ’s second coming. He says, “In the last days perilous times shall come: for men shall be lovers of their own selves; … lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

“In the summer and autumn of 1844 the proclamation, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,” was given. The two classes represented by the wise and foolish virgins were THEN developed — one class who looked with joy to the Lord’s appearing, and who had been diligently preparing to meet Him; another class that, influenced by fear and acting from impulse, had been satisfied with a theory of the truth, but were destitute of the grace of God. In the parable, when the bridegroom came, “they that were ready went in with him to the marriage.”– The Great Controversy, p. 426


“Many who went forth to meet the Bridegroom under the messages of the first and second angels, refused the third, the last testing message to be given to the world, and
 a similar position will be taken when the last call is made.”
  {RH, October 31, 1899 par. 12} )

Pray, “Thy KINGDOM COME” Christ’s character IN YOU. Means truth settled in your mind that you DO, not just hear.
“The proclamation, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,” in the summer of 1844, led thousands to expect the immediate advent of the Lord. At the appointed time the Bridegroom came, not to the earth, as the people expected, but to the Ancient of Days in heaven, to the marriage, the reception of His kingdom. “They that were ready went in with Him to the marriage: and the door was shut.” They were not to be present in person at he marriage; for it takes place in heaven,while they are upon the earth. The followers of Christ are to wait for their Lord, when He will return from the wedding. Luke 12 : 36. But they are to understand His work, and to follow Him by faith as He goes in before God. It is in this sense that they are said to go in to the marriage.”–  The Great Controversy., p. 427.
 “The great plan of redemption, as revealed in the closing work of these last days, should receive close examination. The scenes connected with the sanctuary above should make such an impression upon the minds and hearts of all that they may be able to impress others. All need to become more intelligent in regard to the work of the atonement, which is going on in the sanctuary above. When this grand truth is seen and understood, those who hold it will work in harmony with Christ to prepare a people to stand in the great day of God, and their efforts will be successful. By study, contemplation, and prayer God’s people will be elevated above common, earthly thoughts and feelings, and will be brought into harmony with Christ and His great work of cleansing the sanctuary above from the sins of the people. Their faith will go with Him into the sanctuary, and the worshipers on earth will be carefully reviewing their lives and comparing their characters with the great standard of righteousness. They will see their own defects; they will also see that they must have the aid of the Spirit of God if they would become qualified for the great and solemn work for this time which is laid upon God’s ambassadors.” 5T 575
“Thus those who follow in the light of the prophetic word saw that, instead of coming to the earth at the termination of the 2300 days in 1844, Christ then entered the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary to perform the closing work of atonement preparatory to His coming.” (The Great Controversy, p. 422).
“In the summer and autumn of 1844 the proclamation, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,” was given. The two classes represented by the wise and foolish virgins were THEN developed — one class who looked with joy to the Lord’s appearing, and who had been diligently preparing to meet Him; another class that, influenced by fear and acting from impulse, had been satisfied with a theory of the truth, but were destitute of the grace of God. In the parable, when the bridegroom came, “they that were ready went in with him to the marriage.”– The Great Controversy, p. 426

So the pioneers of Adventism WENT IN WITH CHRIST BY FAITH TO THE MARRIAGE. The leaders of Adventism who obeyed the truth in “The truths that we received in 1841, ’42, ’43, and ’44 are NOW to be studied and proclaimed. The messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future [now 2015-  September 19, 2016! Rev 13:5 the end of the 42 months which started on March 19, 2013] be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit.” {15MR 317.1}

Many who went forth to meet the Bridegroom under the messages of the first and second angels, REFUSED the third, the last testing message to be given to the world, and a SIMILAR position will be taken when the LAST call is made.”  {RH, October 31, 1899 par. 12} )

When it is YOUR time to be judged, for no man knoweth the day nor hour of His coming = this is not necessarily his 2nd coming literally – but a meeting of the mind or not with Christ – putting into practice all that you KNOW to do that is right and Holy – being in perfect agreement with God in your thoughts, words and actions. Faith is a action word for faith without works is dead, and yet no works alone without faith or Christ will save you.

At the SURPRISE visitation when your time comes to be judged, will Christ find you partaking of the UNHOLY FEAST (finding fault and criticizing others – speaking UNHOLY WORDS) or the HOLY FEAST of the Bread of the Lamb, studying the Word of God and SHARING IT by your WORDS and ACTIONS, with an intensity yet before unknown?

THE FOOLISH VIRGINS (LUKEWARM LAODICEAN) TARES:will feed upon the errors and mistakes and faults of others, “UNTIL,” said the angel, “the Lord Jesus shall rise up from His mediatorial work in the heavenly sanctuary and shall clothe Himself with the garments of vengeance and SURPRISE THEM at their UNHOLY FEAST, and they will find themselves unprepared for the marriage supper of the Lamb (WORD OF GOD = hearers and doers of THE WORD, THE WAY THE TRUTH, THE 10 COMMANDMENTS).” Their taste has been so perverted that they would be inclined to criticize even the table of the Lord in His kingdom.” Testimonies for the Church Volume 5, p. 689.2

THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND! His KINGDOM OF GOD IS CHRIST IN YOU, THE LAW IN YOU, PERFECT OBEDIENCE TO THE LAW BECAUSE YOU LOVE CHRIST. CHRIST TAKES AWAY EVEN YOUR INCLINATION TO SIN AND GIVES YOU A CHANGE OF MIND (RAIMENT/CHARACTER)! PRAY, THY KINGDOM COME QUICKLY!

The KINGDOM OF GOD IS THE CHARACTER OF CHRIST IN US. THE MIND OF CHRIST IN US. THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS THE LAW OF GOD IN US. THE MIND OF GOD IN US. HIS THOUGHTS AND HIS FEELINGS are written in the two lobes of our mind by His own finger, through Christ in us. Christ’s MIND is a copy or the Law of God. Christ is the Law in us. Christ mind is the 10 law in our mind. Our actions show how much we love Christ. Whether we are a HOST or medium or channel for Christ who is the law in us. Christ is truth, the law is truth. Christ is perfect, the law is perfect, so if Christ the law is in our mind we will be in perfect obedience, because only Christ can make us perfect. Perfect and holy simply means to be in constant agreement with God.

Christ says of these unholy foolish virgins who are lukewarm laodicean tares who are gathered into the 501c3 modern SDA church theological bundle to be burned, “DEPART FROM ME FOR I KNOW YOU NOT”.

If these persons do not humble their hearts before God, if they harbor the suggestions of Satan, doubt and infidelity will take possession of the soul, and they will see everything in a false light. Let the seeds of doubt once be sown in their hearts and they will have an abundant harvest to reap. They (501c3 Adventists) will come to mistrust and disbelieve truths which are plain and full of beauty to others who have not educated themselves in unbelief. Those who train the mind to seize upon everything which they can use as a peg to hang a doubt upon, and suggest these thoughts to other minds, will always find occasion to doubt. They will question and criticize everything that arises in the unfolding of truth, criticize the work and position of others, criticize every branch of the work in which they have not themselves a part.They will feed upon the errors and mistakes and faults of others, “until,” said the angel, “the Lord Jesus shall rise up from His mediatorial work in the heavenly sanctuary and shall clothe Himself with the garments of vengeance and surprise them at their unholy feast, and they will find themselves unprepared for the marriage supper of the Lamb.” Their taste has been so perverted that they would be inclined to criticize even the table of the Lord in His kingdom.” Testimonies for the Church Volume 5, p. 689.2

“There is many a man in the humble walks of life today whom the Lord might designate as He did Abraham: “The friend of God.” Such men approve that which God approves and condemn that which He condemns. In their presence even the sinner feels a sense of awe, a restraint; for God is with them, and they are living epistles, known and read of all men. There is a softened tenderness, a dignity, a divine propriety, in their deportment, which gives them power (character/influence) over the hearts of their fellow men.”  {4T 615.3} 

   “In the work of reform to be carried forward today, there is need of men who, like Ezra and Nehemiah, will not palliate or excuse sin, nor shrink from vindicating the honor of God. Those upon whom rests the burden of this work will not hold their peace when wrong is done, neither will they cover evil with a cloak of false charity. They will remember that God is no respecter of persons,and that severity to a few may prove mercy to many. They will remember also that in the one who rebukes evil the spirit of Christ should ever be revealed. {PK 675.1}

THE TEN VIRGIN PARABLE IS PRESENT TRUTH FOR ADVENTISTS UNTIL THE END OF TIME.
R. & H., Bok 2, p. 419: – “When the third angel’s message is preached as it should be, power (character) attends its proclamation, and it becomes an abiding influence. It must be attended with divine power [Godly character = devoutly religious, devout, pious, reverent, believing, God-fearing, saintly, holy=in constant agreement with God, prayerful, spiritual], or it will accomplish nothing. I am often referred to the parable of the ten virgins, five of whom were wise, and five foolish. This parable has been and WILL BE fulfilled to the very letter, for it has a special application to this time, and, like the third angel’s message, has been fulfilled and will continue to be present truth until the close of time.” {RH, August 19, 1890 par. 3}

“It has been supposed that the Philadelphia church reached to the end. This we must regard as a mistake, as the seven churches in Asia represent seven distinct periods of the TRUE church, and the Philadelphia is the sixth, and not the last state. The true church cannot be in TWO conditions at the same time, hence we are shut up to the faith that the Laodicean church represents the church of God at the PRESENT time.

[The SDA church had already become laodicean by 1852  “The words addressed to the Laodicean Church, describe their present condition perfectly.” {RH June 10, 1852, par. 2}.]

“The CONDITIONAL PROMISES to the Philadelphia church are yet to be fulfilled to that portion of that church who comply with the conditions, pass down THROUGH the Laodicean state, and OVERCOME.

“But dear brethren, how humbling to us as a people is the sad description of THIS church. And is not this dreadful description a most perfect picture of our present condition? It is; and it will be of no use to try to evade the force of this searching testimony to the Laodicean church. The Lord help us to receive it, and to PROFIT by it. What language could better describe our condition as a people than this addressed to the Laodiceans?” White, James, The Seven Churches, R&H, 10/16/1856.

 THE TWO TYPES OF SERVANTS AT THE END OF MATTHEW 24, PRODUCES THE TWO TYPES OF VIRGINS (WISE AND FOOLISH) IN MATTHEW 25.

The call of the Bridegroom and Bride WAKE UP THE 10 VIRGINS. The Ten Virgins represent the Adventist church experience from “The truths that we received in 1841, ’42, ’43, and ’44 are now to be studied and proclaimed. The messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future [now] be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit.” {15MR 317.1} until the END which is NOW. The message given NOW by the 144,000, the Bride of Christ wakes up the Ten Virgin ADVENTISTS (virgin because the PROFESS a pure truth but only the 5 wise put it into practice) who jump to their feet as THEY “SEE the wedding party procession moving on, bright with torches and glad with music.

In the parable, all the ten virgins [Adventists] went out to meet the bridegroom. All had lamps and vessels for oil. For a time there was seen no difference between them. So with the [Adventist] church that lives just before Christ’s second coming. All have a knowledge of the Scriptures. All have heard the message of Christ’s near approach, and confidently expect His appearing. But as in the parable, so it is now. A time of waiting intervenes [171 years from 1844 to 2015], 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 their vessels with their lamps. They are destitute of the Holy Spirit (Christ’s mind/His Character=the Ten Commandments in action).

Without the Spirit of God a knowledge of His word is of no avail. The theory of truth, unaccompanied by the Holy Spirit (Christ’s character (His mind)=the law in action), cannot quicken the soul or sanctify the heart. One may be familiar with the commands and promises of the Bible; but unless the Spirit of God (in Christ, in ud=MY WORD IS SPIRIT, BIBLE VERSES ARE ALIVE/CRHIST IS ALIVE) sets the truth home, the character will not be transformed. Without the enlightenment of the Spirit, men will not be able to distinguish truth from error, and they will fall under the masterful temptations of Satan.” Christ’s Object Lessons, [p. 410-411] by Ellen G. White, Chapter 29: “To Meet the Bridegroom”, Based on Matt. 25:1-13.

“The history of the early experiences in the message will be a power to withstand the masterly ingenuity of Satan’s deceptions.” EGW, Letter 99, 1905.
 
My mind was carried to the future (NOW), when the signal will be given. ‘Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.’ But some will have delayed to obtain the oil for replenishing their lamps, and too late they will find that character, which is represented by the oil, is not transferable.” Review and Herald, February 11, 1896.

We are to claim Christ’s victory as our very own by the faith OF CHRIST; and enter into the Most Holy Place, the Bridal Chambers or mind of Christ, the law of GOD, His Father, by the faith OF CHRIST! According to Psalms 100:4 we enter into Christ through THANKSGIVING and into the Sanctuary through PRAISE!

The message to Laodicea is one of judgement with a call to repentance. Judgement starts with the House of God. Laodicea is the “nation of judgment.” It is the last Church, the last light bearer on Earth before the coming of Christ. This letter is to God’s people in our time.

The Lukewarm Church needs the COIN of “repentance” to buy Christ’s Character (10 Commandments) and discernment

One of Laodicea’s key faults was its “lukewarmness.” This has been going on since 1852! If Laodicea typifies the modern 501c3 General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists church members of today, then we have tons of major work to do on our own INDIVIDUAL “lukewarmness.” Sister White says, “The coin with which you purchase the white raiment and the eyesalve (discernment to see truth) is repentance.” So members of Laodicea (501c3 SDA) are hopeless until they individually repent.

What does REPENTANCE mean?

Through Christ We Can Overcome Sin
There is nothing we can do in our own strength to remedy the brokenness and sinfulness in our hearts (minds). But Christ has prepared a way for us to overcome through His strength.
The Remnant
Revelation 12 speaks of an end-time Church that is merely a remnant: the only true followers left. Acts 24:14 describes them perfectly.

The investigative judgment is symbolized by a stone cut out, but not by human hands, that smites the image of the beast that has been smuggled into God’s last day remnant SDA church.

On June 10, 1852, Ellen White wrote: “As I have of late looked around to find the humble followers of the meek and lowly Jesus, my mind has been much exercised.

Many who profess to be looking for the speedy coming of Christ, are becoming conformed to this world, and seek more earnestly the applause of those around them, than the approbation of God. They are cold and formal, like the nominal church, that they but a short time since separated from. Thewords addressed to the Laodicean Church, describe their present condition perfectly. See Revelation 3:14-20. They areneither cold nor hot,” butlukewarm.” And unless they heed the counsel of the “faithful and True Witness,” and zealously repent, and obtain “gold tried in the fire,” “white raiment,” and “eye-salve,” he will spue them out of his mouth.

The time has come when a large portion of those who once rejoiced, and shouted aloud for joy, in view of the immediate coming of the Lord, are on the ground of the churches and world who once scoffed at, and derided them for believing that Jesus was coming, and circulated all manner of falsehoods to raise prejudice against them, and destroy their influence.—If any one longs after the living God, and hungers and thirsts for righteousness, and God gives them to feel his power, and satisfies their longing soul, by shedding abroad his love in their hearts, and if they glorify God by praising him, they are, by these professed believers in the soon coming of the Lord, often considered deluded, and charged with having mesmerism or some wicked spirit.

Many of these professed Christians dress, talk and act like the world, and the only thing by which they may be known, is their profession. Though they profess to be looking for Christ, their conversation is not in heaven, but on worldly things.

“What manner of persons” ought those to be “in all holy conversation and godliness,” who profess to be “looking for, and hasting unto the day of God?” 2 Peter 3:11. “Every man that hath this hope in him, purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” 1 John 3:3. But it is evident that many who bear the advent name, study more to decorate their bodies, and appear well in the eyes of the world, than they do the word of God, to learn how they may be approved of him.

What if the lovely Jesus, our pattern, should make his appearance among them, and the professors of religion generally, as at his first advent? He was born in a manger. Follow him along through his life and ministry. He was a man of sorrow and acquainted with grief. These professed Christians would be ashamed of the meek and lowly Saviour who wore a plain, seamless coat, and had not where to lay his head. His spotless, self-denying life would condemn them; his holy solemnity would be a painful restraint upon their lightness and vain laughter; his guileless conversation would be a check to their worldly and covetous conversation; his declaring the unvarnished, cutting truth would manifest their real character, and they would wish to get the meek Pattern, the lovely Jesus, out of the way as soon as possible. They would be among the first to try to catch him in his words, and raise the cry, Crucify him! Crucify him!

Let us follow Jesus as he so meekly rode into Jerusalem, when “the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice, (. . .) Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord. Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. Some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.—And he answered and said unto them, I tell you, that if these should hold their peace the stones would immediately cry out.” A large portion of those who profess to be looking for Christ would be as forward as the Pharisees were, to have the disciples silenced, and they would doubtless raise the cry, Fanaticism! Mesmerism! Mesmerism! And the disciples spreading their garments and branches of palm-trees in the way would be thought extravagant and wild.

But God will have a people on the earth that will not be so cold and dead but that they can praise and glorify him. He will receive glory from some people, and if his chosen people, who keep his commandments should hold their peace the very stones would cry out.

Jesus is coming, but not as at his first advent, a babe in Bethlehem, not as he rode into Jerusalem, when the disciples praised God with a loud voice and cried, Hosannah; but in the glory of the Father, and with all the retinue of holy angels with him, to escort him on his way to earth. All heaven will be emptied of the angels. While the waiting saints will be looking for him, and gazing into heaven, as were the “men of Galilee” when he ascended from the Mount of Olivet.—Then, those only who are holy, those who have followed fully the meek Pattern will, with rapturous joy, exclaim as they behold him, “Lo, this is our God, we have waited for him, and he will save us.” And they will be changed “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump,” that wakes the sleeping saints, and calls them forth from their dusty beds, clothed with glorious immortality, shouting, Victory! Victory! over death and the grave. The changed saints are caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air, never more to be separated from the object of their love.

With such a prospect as this before us, such a glorious hope, such a redemption that Christ has purchased for us by his own blood, shall we hold our peace? Shall we not praise God, even with a loud voice, as the disciples did when Jesus rode into Jerusalem? Is not our prospect far more glorious than theirs was? Who dare then forbid us glorifying God, even with a loud voice, when we have such a hope, big with immortality and full of glory? We have tasted of the powers of the world to come, and long for more. My whole being cries out after the living God, and I shall not be satisfied until I am filled with all his fullness.

The way to heaven is rugged. Briers and thorns are in the way; but we can with cheerfulness tread the rough pathway, knowing that Jesus, the King of glory, once trod it before us.

We will rejoice that we can follow in his footsteps, and be partakers with him of his sufferings, that we may finally partake of his glory.

What if reproaches are heaped upon me, even by those who profess to be looking for the Lord? What if falsehoods are kept in circulation by “whosoever loveth a lie” made ready to their hand? All this I can bear cheerfully. Why should I repine? My Master, the King of Glory, was treated a thousand times worse than I have been, and can I, a poor, unworthy creature, expect any better treatment in following Jesus, than he received? Shall I complain, when Jesus bore the scoffs and derision of his own people, the Jews, and was finally rejected and crucified by them for me? For my sins he bore all this. No, I will not complain; I will rather rejoice and be exceeding glad that I am accounted worthy to suffer for Christ’s sake, that my reward may be in heaven. Only let me have an inheritance in glory, and it will be enough. For that, I can endure anything and everything. Heaven, sweet heaven.

“I long to be there, and the thought that ‘tis near, Makes me almost impatient for Christ to appear, And fit up that dwelling of glory so rare—The earth robed in beauty—I long to be there.”

Let us, dear brethren and sisters, crave the suffering, crucifying part of religion. For we are to be purified and fitted for the kingdom through suffering. We must keep separate from the world, if we would have the love of God abide with us. As soon as we begin to be conformed to this world, just so soon God’s Spirit begins to depart from us. But if we keep humble, live holy, harmless and separate from sinners, we shall see of the salvation of God. Let us strive to be Christians (Christ-like) in every sense of the word, and let our dress, conversation and actions preach that Christ is formed within, the hope of glory, and that we are looking for that blessed hope and glorious appearing of Jesus. Let us show to those around us, that this world is not our home, that we are pilgrims and strangers here.

My affections, interest, treasure, all, is in the bright world to come. I long to see the King in his beauty, whom angels adorate, and as they bow, cast their glittering crowns before him, and then touch their golden harps, and fill all heaven with their rich music.

Let those who break God’s law and teach others to do so, denounce us as fallen from grace because we keep all ten of his immutable precepts, it will not harm us. We have the satisfaction of knowing, that while they curse, Jesus has pronounced a blessing. Says the true Witness, the only Begotten of the Father, “Blessed are they that do his [the Father’s] commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the City.” Revelation 22:14.

Think ye that the commandment-keepers will be sorry, and mourn when the pearly gates of the Golden City of God are swung back upon their glittering hinges, and they are welcomed in? No, never. They will then rejoice, that they are not under the bondage of the law, but that they have kept God’s law, and therefore are free from it. They will have right to the tree of life, a right to its healing leaves. They will hear the lovely voice of Jesus, richer than any music that ever fell on mortal ear, saying, There will be no more sorrow, pain or death; sighing and crying have fled away.

“Our eyes shall then, with rapture,
The Saviour’s face behold,
Our feet, no more diverted,
Shall walk the streets of gold;
Our ears shall hear with transport
The hosts celestial sing,
Our tongues shall chant the glory
Of our Immortal King.”

Ellen G. White, THE REVIEW AND HERALD, June 10, 1852

The Remnant
Revelation 12 speaks of an end-time Church that is merely a remnant: the only true followers left.

The prophet Isaiah saw the end-time saints as a wedding party.  He saw them going forth with lamps shining brightly, even in the midst of thick darkness. Everyone is to hear the last call to the marriage supper of the Lamb. . . . These words are for us!  Isaiah 60:1-5: 1. ‘Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.  2. For behold, The darkness shall cover the earth,  And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.  3. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.  4. “Lift up your eyes all around, and see:  They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar,  And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. 5. Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy.’ -Isa 60:1-5 NKJV

Hosea 6:2 goes on to say, “And on the third day He will raise us up”

That we may live in His sight”, indicating, as we shall see, that this revival will carry on into the Millennium.

The Everlasting Covenant of God – the paid Bride price – the highest price ever paid for a bride – paid by his life blood. This is the central drama of the 70th week. While many will fall away the endtime saints will embrace the grand adventure and the divine romance. They will take center stage in this climactic time of witness. They will have their eyes on the Mighty One of Israel. Like our Apostle Paul they will,

“Press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”. -Phil. 3:14 NKJV

The WISE VIRGINS GO FORTH OUT OUT OF THE 501c3 ADVENTIST CHURCH ORGANIZATION AND PARTAKE OF THE HISTORICAL DOCTRINES OF ADVENTISM AND THE TWELVE APOSTLES = CHRIST IN US, THE LAW IN US IS CHRIST’S CHARACTER IN US. THE LAW IS A TRANSCRIPT OF THE MIND OF CHRIST:

The truths that we received in 1841, ’42, ’43, and ’44 are now to be studied and proclaimed. The messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future [now] be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit.” {15MR 317.1}

CHRIST’s MIND IN US is a settling in our MINDS of the TRUTHS of historical Adventism. The same truths taught by the 12 disciples are also taught by the 144,000! Who are the 144,000? They come from the Adventist church as leaders who practice what they preach and just like the pioneers could not join the SDA church today neither can we.

The church has changed its position over the course of time. Slowly and insidiously the Trinity doctrine and all its errors have found their way into the system of belief now professed by the SDA church. Our creed, as evidenced by the book Seventh-Day Adventists Believe, now accepts this abominable doctrine. We have accepted a doctrine that our pioneers would not have tolerated. Famous author and Andrews University seminary professor George Knight boldly admits this fact in the following statement found in MINISTRY magazine, Oct/1993 p. 10.

“Most of the founders of Seventh-day Adventism would not be able to join the church today if they had to subscribe to the denomination’s Fundamental Beliefs.” “More specifically, most would not be able to agree to belief number 2, which deals with the doctrine of the Trinity. For Joseph Bates the Trinity was an unscriptural doctrine, for James White it was that ‘old Trinitarian absurdity,’ and for M.E. Cornell it was a fruit of the great apostasy, along with such false doctrines as Sunday keeping and the immortality of the soul.”

“In like manner, most of the founders of Seventh-day Adventism would have trouble with fundamental belief number 4, which holds that Jesus is both eternal and truly God. For J.N. Andrews ‘the Son of God…had God for His Father, and did, at some point in the eternity of the past, have beginning of days.’ And E.J. Waggoner, of Minneapolis 1888 fame, penned in 1890 that ‘there was a time when Christ proceeded forth and came from God…but that time was so far back in the days of eternity that to finite comprehension it is practically without beginning.”

“Neither could most of the leading Adventists have agreed with fundamental belief number 5, which implies the personhood of the Holy Spirit. Uriah Smith, for example, not only was anti-Trinitarian, like so many of his colleagues, but also like them pictured the Holy Spirit as ‘that divine mysterious emanation through which They [the Father and the Son] carry forward their great and infinite work.’ On another occasion, Smith pictured the Holy Spirit as a ‘divine influence’ (holy character=thoughts and feelings the Ten Commandment law is a transcript of their mind which should be in us through claiming Christ’s mind as ours by the faith of Christ) and not a ‘person like the Father and the Son.”

Daily to be Lifted Up by the Holy Spirit (Jesus=Word of God=My WORDS (vivifies) are SPIRIT: “The WORDS I have spoken to you–THEY ARE full of the SPIRIT and life.” (ALIVE)= John 6:63/Hebrews 4:12/John 5:39-47), to Breathe the Pure Atmosphere of Spiritual Holiness

“While good works will not save even one soul, yet it is impossible for even one soul to be saved without good works” –{Selected Messages, bk. 1, p. 377}.

“Good works will not pay the price of our redemption; they are ONLY the fruit of our faith” –{Mrs. E. G. White, THE REVIEW AND HERALD, September 6, 1892}.

God calls for men and women to be laborers together with him, to be workers who are sound in faith, pure in heart, and single in purpose. They should work to glorify God by the saving of souls that are lost. God requires heart-service. A service of form, lip-service, is wholly inefficient in the work of converting souls to God. A service that comes not from the heart is as sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal. The heart must be stirred with the co-operative energy of the Holy Spirit; then standing in full view of the cross of Calvary by faith, the worker can communicate to others the divine inspiration of his theme. From a full treasure-house he can bring forth things new and old, which will stir the hearts of his hearers, and convicted, they will cry out, “What must I do to be saved?” If the minister steps from the pulpit, and separates himself from the people without making a special personal effort for those who have been touched by the love of Christ, he has lost an opportunity which he will never recover.

We need more missionary ministers, ministers who are missionaries in deed and in truth, who place themselves in communication with the Lord Jesus Christ by earnest prayer, by complete surrender to God, so that heaven’s message through them may be given to the world. Then they will not fail to make decided impressions, inciting those who hear them to repentance, faith, love, joy, and earnest work for the Master. But in order to have the life-giving power from the Source of all light and knowledge, you must be responsive to every movement of the Holy Spirit, that his light may shine through you to the church and to the world. Ministers allow themselves to take a low level, they do not aim high, they do not expect much; and time and opportunities pass by, and they make no improvement of them. In order to exercise themselves unto godliness, in order rightly to take hold of the sacred work in which they are engaged, they need daily to be lifted up by the Holy Spirit, to breathe the pure atmosphere of spiritual holiness.

Among ministers there must be more self-forgetfulness, a more complete hiding of themselves in Christ Jesus, in order that they may work the works of God, in order to win souls both by preaching the word and by ministering in the homes, in visiting the people, in praying with them, in presenting to them the heavenly manna of the word of God, educating them to contemplate the love of Christ. In doing the work the minister will be attended by the angels of heaven, and will be himself instructed and enlightened in the truth that maketh wise unto salvation. In visiting the people, he will learn their necessities, and his sympathies will be called out. The love of Jesus for blood-bought souls will manifest itself in tenderness to the lost, and will grow by exercise. He will sink self in his interest for the work.

He will have many straight and plain words to address to those who need them; for when God commissions men to do his work, he lays upon them the burden of watching for souls as they that must give an account. When needed warnings are to be given, sins are to be rebuked, errors and wrongs are to be corrected, not only in the pulpit but personal labor. This is divine work, and although it is not congenial to the natural inclinations, the minister must proclaim the straight truth which will make the ears of them that hear tingle; for they must lay before those who are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, the dangers and perils that are around them, and the doom that awaits the impenitent. Because this message is not agreeable to their inclination, or welcome to those who must be warned, they are solemnly charged to be faithful in its declaration. The ministers will meet wrongs that will seem to defy correction. They will be made aware of sins that seem to be covered that will need to be exposed, on the right hand and on the left. The prophet says, “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God.” “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long- suffering and doctrine.” The minister is not to indulge in the relation of anecdotes, but he is to preach the word. “Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.” “Be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” We are to present Christ to the people, following the words of the apostle where he says, “Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus; whereunto I also labor, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.” Was it essential for Paul to have this experience? Read carefully, meditate upon his words, and see if it is safe for any of the ministers of Christ to shape their life according to any lower standard of godliness.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” What is there left for us to ask that is not included in this merciful, abundant provision? Through the merits of Christ we are blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. It is our privilege to draw nigh to God, to breathe in the atmosphere of his presence. If we keep ourselves in close union with the common, cheap, sensual things of this earth, Satan will interpose his shadow, so that we shall fail to discern the blessedness of the promises and assurances of God, and so shall fail to be strengthened to attain to a high spiritual standard. Nothing short of abiding in the presence of Christ will bring peace, freedom, courage, and power.

“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.” There can be no misunderstanding here, unless there is wilful blindness. We are to be holy and without blame before him in love. The condition upon which we receive an increase of grace is that we improve upon the light we already have. If we would find, we must go on continually seeking; if we would receive, we must ask; if we would have the door opened, we must knock.

The responsibility of our own ruin will lie at our own door. The word of God speaks to us as if everything depended upon our own efforts. We must come, we must resist the Devil, we must strive to enter in at the strait gate, we must run the race with patience, we must fight the fight of faith, we must wrestle with principalities and powers, we must agonize before God in prayer, if we would stand blameless before the throne of God. We must have the faith that works, or it will be powerless. Good works will not pay the price of our redemption; they are only the fruit of our faith.

Our experience must broaden and deepen; for by his grace we are to be made perfect in our weakness. Our will must be placed firmly, decidedly, intelligently, on the side of God’s will. There must be no presumption; for it becomes us to pass the time of our sojourning here in fear, not in distrust of the grace of God, but in fear that self shall gain the supremacy. We are not to fear that there will be any failure on the part of God, but fear lest because of our own sinful inclinations any of us should seem to come short of the promise. Let the standard be set high, and let there be an earnest striving to reach it in our daily lives, till our souls burn with holy desire. We need to talk faith; for it is very feeble, but in talking faith we must speak of that faith that works by love and purifies the soul.

We have come to have very meager ideas as to what constitutes the duty of a Christian minister. Many who minister in the sacred desk do not half understand their responsibilities. They are taking things altogether too easy and comfortable, for, in short, many are in Satan’s easy-chair, thinking if they partially copy another minister, they will fill the requirements. There is need of alarm among the ministers, but no one need be hopeless. There is need of self-examination that we may understand whether we are learning the meekness and lowliness of Christ; for we are to follow his example. In our labors we are to bear the same testimony as did Paul. He says, “Ye know from the first day that I came into Asia after what manner I have been with you; at all seasons, serving the Lord with all humility of mind, … and how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have showed you, and have taught publicly, and from house to house, testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” “Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” “I have showed you all things, how that so laboring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

The Lord Jesus said to Peter, “When thou art converted strengthen thy brethren;” and after his resurrection, just before his ascension, he said to his disciples, “Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.” This was a work in which Peter had but little experience; but he could not be complete in Christian life unless he learned to feed the lambs, those who are young in the faith. It would require great care, much patience and perseverance to give those who are ignorant the suitable teachings, opening up to them the Scriptures, and educating them for usefulness and duty. This is the work that must be done in the church at this day, or the advocates of truth will have a dwarfed experience, and will be exposed to temptation and deception. The charge given to Peter should come home to every minister. Again and again, the voice of Christ is heard repeating the charge to his undershepherds, “Feed my lambs, Feed my sheep.” –{Mrs. E. G. White, THE REVIEW AND HERALD, September 6, 1892}.

Who ARE the 144,000? Melchizedek: They are the church triumphant! Mobile Churches! Chariots of God! The Testimonies for the Church ARE SPECIAL COUNCILS for the 144,000! daily to be lifted up by the Holy Spirit (Jesus), to breathe the pure atmosphere of spiritual holiness

Identity of Melchizedek

Ellen White predicts:

“Who is to compose the hundred and forty-four thousand? This those who ARE the elect of God will in a short time know without question.” Last Day Events, p. 269.1

“Let us strive with all the power (character=thoughts and feelings=Christ’s mind=the Ten Commandments in us through Christ in us) that God has given us to be among the hundred and forty-four thousand.” 7BC 970,  RH March 9, 1905, par. 4

“Then we heard the voice of God which shook the heavens and the earth, and gave the 144,000 the day and hour of Jesus coming.” Portland, April 6, 1846. BROADSIDE APR.06, 1846:

“The graves were opened, and those who had died in faith under the third angel’s message, keeping the Sabbath, came forth from their dusty beds, glorified, to hear the covenant of peace that God was to make with those who had kept His law.” Early Writings, p. 285.1Maranatha, p. 281.2

“I saw that she [Mrs. Hastings, who had just died] was sealed and would come up at the voice of God and stand upon the earth, and would be with the 144,000. I saw we need not mourn for her; she would rest in the time of trouble.”Letter 10, 1850 (2SM 263).

“Those who die under the third angel’s message are a part of the 144,000; there are not 144,000 in addition to these, but these help make up that number. They are raised to mortal life shortly before Christ comes, and . . . are changed to immortality when Christ appears.” James S. White, RH Sept. 23, 1880.

About four months since I had a vision of events all in the future. I saw the time of trouble, such as never was. Jesus told me it was the time of Jacob’s trouble, and that we should be delivered out of it by the voice of God. Then I saw the four angels cease to hold the four winds. And I saw famine, pestilence and sword–nation rose against nation, and the whole world was in confusion. Then we cried to God day and night for deliverance, until we began to hear the bells on Jesus’ garment. And I saw Jesus rise up in the Holiest, and as he came out we heard the tinkling of the bells and knew that our High Priest was coming out. Then we heard the voice of God which shook the heavens and the earth, and gave the 144,000 the day and hour of Jesus coming. Then the saints were free, united, and full of the glory of God, for he has turned their captivity. And I saw a flaming cloud come where Jesus’ stood. Then Jesus laid off his priestly garment and put on his Kingly robe, and took his place on the cloud which carried him to the East, where it first appeared to the saints on earth–a small black cloud which was the sign of the Son of Man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the East, which took a number of days, the synagogue of Satan (professed 501c3 Adventist’s) worshipped at the saint’s feet. Portland, April 6, 1846. BROADSIDE1 APR.06,1846

“No person can give to another his own mold of character. Let us duly consider the fact that we are to be saved, not as companies, but as individuals. We shall be judged according to the character we have formed.” RH September 17, 1895, par. 4

Here is another Ellen G. White’s statement on the 144,000 of Revelation 7 and 14:

Upon the crystal sea before the throne, that sea of glass as it were mingled with fire,–so resplendent is it with the glory of God,–are gathered the company that have “gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name.” With the Lamb upon Mount Zion, “having the harps of God,” they stand, the hundred and forty and four thousand that were redeemed from among men; and there is heard, as the sound of many waters, and as the sound of a great thunder, “the voice of harpers harping with their harps.” And they sing “a new song” before the throne, a song which no man can learn save the hundred and forty and four thousand. It is the song of Moses and the Lamb–a song of deliverance. None but the hundred and forty-four thousand can learn that song; for it is the song of their experience–an experience such as no other company have ever had. “These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth.” These, having been translated from the earth, from among the living, are counted as “the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb.” Revelation 15:2, 3; 14:1-5. “These are they which came out of great tribulation;” they have passed through the time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation; they have endured the anguish of the time of Jacob’s trouble; they have stood without an intercessor through the final outpouring of God’s judgments. But they have been delivered, for they have “washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” “In their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault” before God. “Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple: and He that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.” They have seen the earth wasted with famine and pestilence, the sun having power to scorch men with great heat, and they themselves have endured suffering, hunger, and thirst. But “they shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.” Revelation 7:14-17. (The Great Controversy, pp. 648, 649)

In Great Controversy Mrs. White outlines the specific characteristics of the 144,000 as thus:

“None but the hundred and forty-four thousand can learn that song; for it is the song of their experience–an experience such as no other company have ever had. “These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth.” These, having been [1] translated from the earth, from among the living, are counted as “the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb.” Revelation 15:2, 3; 14:1-5. [2] “These are they which came out of great tribulation;” they have passed through the time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation; [3] they have endured the anguish of the time of Jacob’s trouble; [4] they have stood without an intercessor through the final outpouring of God’s judgments. … -[5] They have seen the earth wasted with famine and pestilence, the sun having power to scorch men with great heat, and they themselves have endured suffering, hunger, and thirst.” (Ibid. p. 649)

From the above it is obvious that the 144,000-those who have received the Seal of God-are identified by the following:

  1. Were alive and translated at Jesus’ return
  2. Went through the great time of trouble
  3. Went through “Jacob’s time of trouble”
  4. Stood without an intercessor
  5. Lived through the final judgments of God upon the earth
 
“Satan has laid every measure possible that nothing shall come among us as a people to reprove and rebuke us, and exhort us to put away our errors.” TM 411.1.

“The Lord has given me a view of other worlds. Wings were given me, and an angel attended me from the city to a place that was bright and glorious. The grass of the place was living green, and the birds there warbled a sweet song. The inhabitants of the place were of all sizes; they were noble, majestic, and lovely. They bore the express image of Jesus, and their countenances beamed with holy joy, expressive of the freedom and happiness of the place. . . . I begged of my attending angel to let me remain in that place. I could not bear the thought of coming back to this dark world again. Then the angel said, ‘You must go back, and if you are faithful, you, with* the 144,000, shall have the privilege of visiting all the worlds and viewing the handiwork of God.'”Early Writings, pp. 39, 40.

One interest will prevail, one subject will swallow up all others, Christ our Righteousness.” The Paulson Collection of Ellen G. White Letters, p. 342.2

​Christ was anointed on the day of Pentecost. The 144,000 will be anointed Oct 22, 1844 – they WENT IN WITH HIM TO THE MARRIAGE – and the door was shut and this will happen AGAIN at the Loud Cry. Those 5 wise virgins go in to the marriage/feast at the end of the investigative judgement of the living and the door is shut for the House of God:
“When the decree GOES FORTH and the stamp is impressed, their character will remain pure and spotless for eternity. Now is the time to prepare.” T5, 216.

When do her sins reach unto heaven [Rev. 18:2-5]? When the law of God is finally made void by legislation.–ST June 12, 1893.
Many who went forth to meet the Bridegroom under the messages of the first and second angels, refused the third, the last testing message to be given to the world, and a SIMILAR position will be taken when the LAST call is made.”  {RH, October 31, 1899 par. 12}

“501c3 SDA MEMBER” “FOOLISH VIRGIN” “LAODICEAN” “TARE THEOLOGICAL BUNDLE”:
All who… do not join the angels who are sent from heaven with a message to fill the whole earth with its glory, will be passed by. The work will go forward to victory without them, and they will have no part in its triumph. (Review and Herald, Extra, Dec, 23, 1890)
“​Under this heavenly illumination, the scriptures which Christ had explained to them, stood forth in their minds with the vivid luster and loveliness of clear and powerful truth. The vail which had prevented them from seeing the end of that which was abolished was now removed, and the object of Christ’s mission and the nature of his kingdom were comprehended with perfect clearness.​”​ {7Red 6.1}​​
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” The Holy Ghost assuming the form of tongues of fire divided at the tips, and resting upon those assembled, was an emblem of the gift which was bestowed upon them of speaking with fluency several different languages, with which they had formerly been unacquainted; and the appearance of fire signified the fervent zeal with which they would labor, and the power which would attend their words.” {7Red 5.2​}​


“This temple was supported by seven pillars, all of transparent gold, set with pearls most glorious. The glorious things I saw there, I cannot describe. Oh, that I could talk in the language of Canaan, then could I tell a little of the glory of the better world. I saw there tables of stone in which the names of the 144,000 were engraved in letters of gold. After we beheld the glory of the temple, we went out, and Jesus left us, and went to the City.”  RH July 21, 1851, Art. B, par. 3

“The oil with which the wise virgins filled their lamps represents the Holy Spirit… Were it not that this holy oil is poured from heaven in the messages of God’s Spirit, the agencies of evil would have entire control over men… God is dishonored when we do not receive the communications which he sends us. Thus we refuse the golden oil (Christ’s character outlined in the Ten Commandments – a transcript of Christ’s MIND, His Divine Attributes, thoughts and feelings=character of Christ and His Father and God and is GIVEN to us when we claim the pledged Word/Promises of God as our own language) which he would pour into our souls to be communicated to those in darkness.” Review and Herald, July 20, 1897.

The next event is the Sunday Law and the close of your probation. There are no more warnings to look out for before you perfect your character in Jesus. At the Sunday Law, the Loud Cry goes forth with unmeasured power, and you will either give that cry or be lost. And NOW is the time God is choosing and sealing those without spot or blemish to give that Loud Cry.
144,000 like “standing on the sea of glass, holding harps (Words/praise) of God”

Early Writings, page 16, that “We were seven days ascending to the sea of glass.”

“Sea of glass mingled with fire” Revelation 15:2 means 144,000 refined by trials until they become transparent glass/gold reflecting fully the image of Christ, the 10 Commandment law, the mind of Christ and the fire stands for their zealous efforts.

Here we saw the tree of life and the throne of God. Out of the throne came a pure river of water, and on either side of the river was the tree of life. On one side of the river was a trunk of a tree, and a trunk on the other side of the river, both of pure transparent gold.

At first I thought I saw two trees. I looked again and saw they were united at the top in one tree.—So it was the tree of life, on either side of the river of life. Its branches bowed to the place where we stood; and the fruit was glorious, which looked like gold mixed with silver. We all went under the tree, and sat down to look at the glory of the place…” RH July 21, 1851, Art. B, par. 3

fruitmeans results in our lives, the character of Christ lived out in our thoughts, feelings and actions. The Ten Commandments is Christ’s mind in our mind. The Master knows our character by our spiritual fruits, just as “a tree is known [identified] by its fruit“—either good or bad (Matthew:12:33

  1. “On either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations (people)” (Revelation 22:2).

The two trees on either side of the sea of glass/river that blend into one at the top represents God and His Son. The 12 fruits on the tree of life that the 144,000 and wise virgins feast on, represent the gospel feast, the Bread of Life, the Word of God, the 12 characteristics of God and His Son:

Nine fruits are listed in Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

Three fruits are listed in Ephesians 5:9-10 (KJV) ” (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.”

  1. love
  2. joy
  3. peace
  4. longsuffering
  5. gentleness
  6. goodness
  7. faith
  8. meekness
  9. temperance
  10. all goodness
  11. all righteousness
  12. all truth

Revelation 22:14 “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”

Matthew 7:16 “Ye shall know them by their fruits.”

THE FOOLISH VIRGINS FEAST UPON, AND ARE SURPRISED AT THEIR UNHOLY FEAST: CRITICIZING AND FAULTFINDING, TEARING DOWN THE REPUTATIONS OF THEIR FELLOW BEINGS:

Galatians 5:19 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

Psalm 1:1-3 “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his LEAF also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”

“Obedience through Jesus Christ (law) gives to man perfection of character and a right to that tree of life. The conditions of again partaking of the fruit of the tree are plainly stated in the testimony of Jesus Christ to John: “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city” (The S.D.A. Bible Commentary, Ellen G. White Comments 1:1086).

“It is the opening of the heart to receive the word which is as the leaves of the tree of life.” Lift Him Up, p. 252.2

“The tree of life is a representation of the preserving care of Christ for his children…Christ is the source of our life, the source of our immortality. He is the tree of life, and to all who come to him he gives spiritual life.”  RH January 26, 1897, par. 9

“Said the angel, If you deliver the messages faithfully, and endure unto the end, you shall eat of the fruit of the tree of life, and drink of the water of the river of life.”

“Jesus is the source of power, the fountain of life. He brings us to His word, and from the tree of life presents to us leaves for the healing of sin-sick souls. He leads us to the throne of God, and puts into our mouth a prayer through which we are brought into close contact with Himself. In our behalf He set in operation the all-powerful agencies of heaven. At every step we touch His living power.” Lift Him Up, p. 264.4

“His word will be to us as the leaves of the tree of life if we will believe in Christ as our personal Saviour. If we eat the bread that came down from heaven, we shall have a live connection with God. We shall bring eternity into our reckoning. We shall live as in the presence of the whole heavenly host. The angels are watching and guarding us.” Lift Him Up, p. 109.6

“Open the Bible before the tempted, struggling one, and over and over again read to him the promises of God. These promises will be to him as the leaves of the tree of life. Patiently continue your efforts, until with grateful joy the trembling hand grasps the hope of redemption through Christ.” The Ministry of Healing, p. 173.1

“They, though but a small remnant (144,000 Adventist leaders who live and give the 4 angels messages and proclaim the Sabbath “more fully”.), finally triumph, and are seen on the “sea of glass mingled with fire,” and on Mount Zion with the Lamb, singing the song of their experience, and their redemption “from among men,” (not from the grave, for they will be alive at the coming of Christ and be changed,) which no others in all wide heaven “could learn.” THE THIRD ANGEL’S MESSAGE. — By James White. p. 6, Para. 3, [MESSAGE].

The Jewish elders had commended the centurion to Christ because of the favor he had shown to “our nation.” He is worthy, they said, for “he hath built us a synagogue.” But the centurion said of himself, “I am not worthy.” Yet he did not fear to ask help from Jesus. Not to his own goodness did he trust, but to the Saviour’s mercy. His only argument was his great need.

In the same way every human being can come to Christ. “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us.” Titus 3:5. Do you feel that because you are a sinner you cannot hope to receive blessing from God? Remember that Christ came into the world to save sinners. We have nothing to recommend us to God; the plea that we may urge now and ever is our utterly helpless condition, which makes His redeeming power a necessity. Renouncing all self-dependence, we may look to the cross of Calvary and say:

“In my hand no price I bring;
Simply to Thy cross I cling.”

“If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23. It is faith that connects us with heaven and brings us strength for coping with the powers of darkness. In Christ, God has provided means for subduing every evil

“For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee…. In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.” Psalms 86:5-7.

“If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared…. Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.”

The message of Christ’s righteousness (Character/Law) is to sound from one end of the earth to the other to prepare the way of the Lord. This is the glory of God, which closes the work of the third angel.”  Testimonies for the Church Volume 6, p. 19.1

“I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They have not rejected the light upon it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath MORE FULLY. This enraged the churches and nominal (in name only/laodicean/foolish virgin/501c3) Adventists, as they could not refute the Sabbath truth. And at this time God’s chosen all saw clearly that WE (those who had come out of the 501c3 SDA church organization) had the truth, and they came out and endured the persecution with us.” Early Writings, p. 33.2

Some 125 years ago Ellen White wrote: “Several have written to me, inquiring if the message of justification by faith is the third angel’s message, and I have answered, ‘It is the third angel’s message in verity.’ ” —RH April 1, 1890, par. 8Selected Messages Book 1, p. 372.2Last Day Events, p. 199.4

“Will you not come to God as little children, appropriate His Promises, plead them before Him as His Own Words? If you do, you will receive fulness of joy.” Special Testimonies, March 15, 1910

“The promises of God looked to me like so many precious pearls that were to be received by only asking for them.” RH July 21, 1851, Art. B, par. 3

“As the result of the threefold message it is announced, ‘Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.'” GC 453, 454.
the people of God are said to be GUESTS at the marriage supper.” The Great Controversy 1888, p. 426.2.
the “people of God” are said to be “guests” at the marriage supper, aka the 5 wise virgins who obey the call of their Father and Mother (Bridegroom and Bride and come out of the 501c3  churches to join the wedding party procession into the gospel feast) Daughter of Zion. ZION IS the Mother of God’s people, Zion is the 144,000. Zion is the one stone with 7 eyes on it. Zion is the 7 pipes which mean channels or tubes for God to speak through. Zion, the 144,000 is the golden bowl that is filled with God and His Son’s truth that is poured through the golden pipes, or channels to God’s people, the 5 wise virgins and the great multitude who join Christ at the Sunday law test. Zion is the mobile Temple or chariots of the living Most High God and His Son – they run before the coming of the Lord saying “Thus shall it be done unto the man whom the King delights to Honor through thanksgiving and praise:


In prophecy, a woman is defined as a church…

  • Jeremiah 6:2 says, “I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.”

 There are TWO women, first the MOTHER, Zion, then the Daughter, the 5 wise virgins who are known as “guests” of the marriage supper, and also “Sons and Daughters of God” aka “People of God”.

“If guests, they cannot be represented also as the bride.” The Great Controversy 1888, p. 426.2Christ in His Sanctuary, p. 104.2

“And to her (144,000/Bride of Christ/church triumphant) was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. Revelation 19:8.

As Paul stated in Roman 9:4, they were the ones, who were privileged with ‘the splendor of the divine presence, theirs is the covenants, the law (Torah), the temple worship, and the promises.’

The faithful, praying ones are, as it were, shut in with God. They themselves know not how securely they are shielded…. But could their eyes be opened, … they would see the angels of God encamped about them, by their brightness and glory holding in check the hosts of darkness.

As the people of God afflict their souls before Him, pleading for purity of heart, the command is given, “Take away the filthy garments” from them, and the encouraging words are spoken, “Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment” (Zechariah 3:4). The spotless robe of Christ’s righteousness is placed upon the tried, tempted, yet faithful children of God. The despised remnant are clothed in glorious apparel, nevermore to be defiled by the corruptions of the world. Their names are retained in the Lamb’s book of life, enrolled among the faithful of all ages. They have resisted the wiles of the deceiver; they have not been turned from their loyalty by the dragon’s roar. Now they are eternally secure from the tempter’s devices. Their sins are transferred to the originator of sin. And the remnant are not only pardoned and accepted, but honored. “A fair miter” is set upon their heads. They are to be as kings and priests unto God. While Satan was urging his accusations and seeking to destroy this company, holy angels, unseen, were passing to and fro, placing upon them the seal of the living God. These are they that stand upon Mount Zion with the Lamb, having the Father’s name written in their foreheads. They sing the new song before the throne, that song which no man can learn save the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. “These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God” (Revelation 14:4, 5).

Now is reached the complete fulfillment of those words of the Angel: “Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the Branch” (Zechariah 3:8). Christ is revealed as the Redeemer and Deliverer of His people. Now indeed are the remnant “men wondered at,” as the tears and humiliation of their pilgrimage give place to joy and honor in the presence of God and the Lamb. “In that day shall the branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely…. And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy” (Isaiah 4:2, 3) (Testimonies for the Church 5:475, 476).  Lift Him Up, p. 377.3

“They were not to be present in person at the marriage; for it takes place in heaven, while they are upon the earth. The followers of Christ are to “wait for their Lord, when He will return from the wedding.” Luke 12:36. But they are to understand His work, and to follow Him by faith as He goes in before GodIt is in this sense that they are said to go in to the marriage.” The Great Controversy, p. 427.1, Christ in His Sanctuary, p. 105.1
“As God has shown me the travels of the Advent people to the Holy City, and the rich reward to be given those who wait the return of their Lord from the wedding, it may be my duty to give you a short sketch of what God has revealed to me. The dear saints have got many trials to pass through. But our light afflictions, which are but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory—while we look not at the things which are seen, for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. I have tried to bring back a good report, and a few grapes from the heavenly Canaan, for which many would stone me, as the congregation bade stone Caleb and Joshua for their report, (Numbers 14:10.) But I declare to you, my brethren and sisters in the Lord, it is a goodly land, and we are well able to go up and possess it.” RH July 21, 1851, Art. B, par. 3

“The great plan of redemption, as revealed in the closing work of these last days, should receive close examination. The scenes connected with the sanctuary above should make such an impression upon the minds and hearts of all that they may be able to impress others. All need to become more intelligent in regard to the work of the atonement, which is going on in the sanctuary above. When this grand truth is seen and understood, those who hold it will work in harmony with Christ to prepare a people to stand in the great day of God, and their efforts will be successful. By study, contemplation, and prayer God’s people will be elevated above common, earthly thoughts and feelings, and will be brought into harmony with Christ and His great work of cleansing the sanctuary above from the sins of the people.Their faith will go with Him into the sanctuary, and the worshipers on earth will be carefully reviewing their lives and comparing their characters with the great standard of righteousness (10 Commandments=Christ the law in our minds, the mind of Christ in us, His character, His merits and attributes are written for us to mold our lives after in the Ten Commandments with His help)They will see their own defects; they will also see that they must have the aid of the Spirit of God if they would become qualified for the great and solemn work for this time which is laid upon God’s ambassadors.” 5T 575

“Thus those who follow in the light of the prophetic word saw that, instead of coming to the earth at the termination of the 2300 days in 1844, Christ then entered the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary to perform the closing work of atonement preparatory to His coming.” (The Great Controversy, p. 422).
“The proclamation, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,” in the summer of 1844, led thousands to expect the immediate advent of the Lord. At the appointed time the Bridegroom came, not to the earth, as the people expected, but to the Ancient of Days in heaven, to the marriage, the reception of His kingdom. “They that were ready went in with Him to the marriage: and the door was shut.” They were not to be present in person at he marriage; for it takes place in heaven,while they are upon the earth. The followers of Christ are to wait for their Lord, when He will return from the wedding. Luke 12 : 36. But they are to understand His work, and to follow Him by faith as He goes in before God. It is in this sense that they are said to go in to the marriage.”–  The Great Controversy., p. 427.
“In the summer and autumn of 1844 the proclamation, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,” was given. The two classes represented by the wise and foolish virgins were THEN developed — one class who looked with joy to the Lord’s appearing, and who had been diligently preparing to meet Him; another class that, influenced by fear and acting from impulse, had been satisfied with a theory of the truth, but were destitute of the grace (character/law) of God. In the parable, when the bridegroom came, “they that were ready went in with him to the marriage.”– The Great Controversy, p. 426
“. . . And all who through the testimony of the Scriptures accept the same truths, following Christ by faith as He enters in before God to perform the last work of mediation, and at its close to receive His kingdom–all these are represented as going in to the marriage.” Great Controversy, page 427,428.

“I saw a throne, and on it sat the Father and the Son. . . . Before the throne I saw the Advent people–the church and the world. I saw two companies, one bowed down before the throne, deeply interested, while the other stood uninterested and careless.” Early Writings, page 54.

 “Now this praying company was in this mortal state, on the earth, yet represented to me as bowed before the throne. I never had the idea that these individuals were actually in the New Jerusalem. Neither did I ever think that any mortal could suppose that I believed that Satan was actually in the New Jerusalem.” Early Writings, page 92.

So the pioneers of Adventism WENT IN WITH CHRIST BY FAITH TO THE MARRIAGE. The leaders of Adventism who obeyed the truth in “The truths that we received in 1841, ’42, ’43, and ’44 are NOW to be studied and proclaimed. The messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future [now 2015-  September 19, 2016! Rev 13:5 the end of the 42 months which started on March 19, 2013] be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit.” {15MR 317.1}

Many who went forth to meet the Bridegroom under the messages of the first and second angels, REFUSED the third, the last testing message to be given to the world, and a SIMILAR position will be taken when the LAST call is made.”  {RH, October 31, 1899 par. 12} )

Jesus, the express image of the Father’s person, the effulgence of His glory; the self-denying Redeemer, throughout His pilgrimage of love on earth, was a living representation of the character of the law of God. In His life it is made manifest that heaven-born love, Christlike principles, underlie the laws of eternal rectitude….” Reflecting Christ, p. 68.6

“As a personal being, God has revealed Himself in His Son. Jesus, the outshining of the Father’s glory, “and the express image of His person” (Hebrews 1:3), was on earth found in fashion as a man.” Testimonies for the Church Volume 8, p. 265.1

 
“Thou sawest till that a stone” “ smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay.” The stone smites the feet, because they are professed Christians, andonly the cases of the professed people of God are considered at the investigative judgment {GC 480.1}. Note that Dan. 2:35 says that the image was broken in pieces together, which is confirming 1 Peter 4:17: “For it is time for judgment to begin, starting with the house of God. And if it starts with us, what will be the fate of those who are disobedient to the gospel of God?”  Daniel [2] presents a succession of events that lead down to the opening of the judgment {GC 355.3}. In this vision, the investigative judgment is symbolized by a stone cut out, but not by human hands, that smites the image.

Against every evildoer God’s law utters condemnation. He may disregard that voice, he may seek to drown its warnings, but in vain. It follows him. It makes itself heard. It destroys his peace. If unheeded, it pursues him to the grave. It bears witness against him at the judgment. A quenchless fire, it consumes at last soul and body. {Ed. 144.5}

Like the Levites were specially chosen by God Himself overnight by Aaron’s rod that budded and bore fruit overnight to do His special work, the 144,000 Adventist leaders are spiritually-begotten believers who teach and live the straight truths of the historical Adventist doctrines from 1844 until the Sunday law legislation.
The truths that we received in 1841, ’42, ’43, and ’44 are now to be studied and proclaimed. The messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future [now] be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit.” {15MR 317.1}

#1 The elect of God, the 144,000 (a literal number) are Adventist leaders from Oct 22, 1844 until probation closes for the house of God at the Sunday law legislation. Adventists who are teaching and living Christ. Adventists who are living and giving the 3 angels messages that is joined by the fourth angel’s message:

“The REMNANT that purify their souls by obeying the truth gather strength from the trying process, exhibiting the beauty of holiness amid the surrounding apostasy.” –{E.G. White, Letter b – 55 – 1886, pp. 6, 7}.

The Present Truth 1849/08/01: “I saw a covering that God was drawing over his people, to protect them in the time of trouble; and every soul that was decided on the truth, and was pure in heart, was to be covered with the covering of Almighty God.”

“Arise, shine; for thy light (Loud Cry=living reality experiencing/knowing Jesus helping you in your life trials) is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.” Isaiah 60:1. TO THOSE WHO GO OUT TO MEET THE BRIDEGROOM IS THIS MESSAGE GIVEN.” Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 420.3 (Loud Cry and Latter Rain testing perfecting messages = it is the Song of their experience of obeying Christ, learning to trust Him completely in ALL things.) “They must have a deep and living experience; this alone will save them in the time of trouble.”  I speak plainly: I do not think this will discourage a true Christian; and I do not want any of you to come up to the time of trouble without a well grounded hope in your Redeemer.

The majority of Adventists Brace Themselves Against the Light of the parable of the Ten Virgins that Adventists are fulfilling: BEHOLD! The Bridegroom cometh! GO YE OUT OF ALL 501c3 churches to MEET HIM!!!! Join your mind to Christ! Join yourself to the Law which is God’s mind in Christ’s mind which should be your mind…. the constraining character of Christ in you is the law of God in YOU or the MIND/Law of God in you through Christ in you! This is the message of the Righteousness of Christ in you! The character of Christ in YOU! The thoughts and feelings of Christ in you! The law of LOVE in you! The yoke of SERVICE to others in you! Go forth to meet Christ by your MIND being SETTLED in the TRUTH. Jesus says, I AM THE TRUTH. So get your mind settled upon Christ! Study like your life depends upon it, because it does! Your eternal life! The daily choices we make today determine our destiny. Eternal life or eternal death.

This 144,000 number is made up from October 22, 1844 until probation closes for the house of God.

When the decree GOES FORTH and the stamp is impressed, their character will remain pure and spotless for eternity. Now is the time to prepare.” T5, 216.

“As the Lord bade faithful Noah before the flood, Come thou, and all thy house, into the ark, he will, previous to the time of trouble, say to his faithful saints, who have been preparing for translation, “Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee.” Important Facts of Faith: Laws of Health and Testimonies (#1-10) (SG.4) (1864)

When do her sins reach unto heaven [Rev. 18:2-5]? When the law of God is finally made void by legislation.–ST June 12, 1893.

“Those professed believers who come up to the time of trouble unprepared, will, in their despair, confess their sins before all in words of burning anguish, while the wicked exult over their distress.” Important Facts of Faith, In Connection with the History of Holy Men of Old (SG.3) (1864)

IF YOU WAIT UNTIL THE SUNDAY LAW, YOU WILL HAVE WOKEN UP AT THE LOUD CRY SIMILAR TO THE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM IN 70 A.D.

Compare the 144,000 to Queen Esther. The Adventist church compares to Queen Vashti. The Queen who refused to show her beauty. Like Queen Vashti, professed Adventists who do not put into practice the great truths given to them in the beginning, (1844 time frame)  refuse to show the beauty of the truths given to them  or setup in the beginning of Adventism. Today modern 501c3 Adventists have a dim sense of the angels’ presence, but lost the power and glory of the scene. Because of their drowsiness and stupor they failed of receiving the evidence that would have strengthened their souls for the terrible scenes before them. Thus today the very men who most need divine instruction often fail of receiving it, because they do not place themselves in communion with heaven. The 144,000 search the Scriptures with an intensity yet before unknown. “All who do not earnestly search the Scriptures and submit every desire and purpose of life to that unerring test, all who do not seek God in prayer for a knowledge of His will, will surely wander from the right path and fall under the deception of Satan.” COUNSELS FOR THE CHURCH, PAGE 320

Isaiah 62, Revelation 3:7-13, and Revelation 14:1-9, and Hebrews 12:22, 23, Identify Zion as Being the Same as Philadelphia or the New Jerusalem, the Perfect Bride of Jesus Christ

Isaiah 62:1-5 especially, identify Zion, the subject of the chapter [see verse 1] as the bride of Jesus Christ. Isaiah 62:5 says:

“For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee; and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.”

We just learned from God’s Holy Word that He marries Zion, as His bride. Who is Zion? Hebrews 12:22, 24, answers this crucial question:

“But ye are come unto mount Sion [Zion], and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and CHURCH OF THE FIRSTBORN [FIRSTFRUITS–Rev. 14:4], which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect.” Hebrews 12:22, 23.

We learn from the above scripture that Zion is the heavenly Jerusalem and the general assembly and Church of the Firstborn which are written in heaven. Dose Ellen White agree with this interpretation of Zion?

“The marriage represents the reception by Christ of His kingdom. The Holy City, the New Jerusalem, which is the capital and representative of the kingdom, is called the ‘the bride, the Lamb’s wife.'” E. G. White, The Great Controversy, 426, 1911 edition.

The Holy City, the New Jerusalem, the capital and REPRESENTATIVE of the kingdom, is called “the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” So Zion is more than a CAPITAL and a city, she is also the bride, the Lamb’s wife, just as Isaiah 62, says that Zion will be married. Why would Christ marry just a city? That would not make sense would it? Of course not. It says that Zion is the capital, the representative and the bride of the heavenly kingdom of God. Remember that Isaiah 62:2, says that Zion (verse 1) shalt be called by a new name. What new name? Let’s go to Revelation 3:12, for the answer:

“…I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is NEW JERUSALEM, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.” Rev. 3:12.

How do we Know That it is Philadelphia That Gets the New Name?

We know for sure that Philadelphia is the final remnant generation, because she is told that she will be kept or protected from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth:

“Because thou [Philadelphia in context] has kept the word of my patience, 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.” Revelation 3:10. Also, the Synagogue of Satan, will worship before thy[Philadelphia’s feet]. Also, she is made a pillar in the Temple of God, because she was the only perfect church in the sense that the 144,000 are perfect before God, Revelation 14:1-4. Philadelphia is not faulted on one point. Though she has but little strength, she has “kept my word, and hast not denied my name,” Rev. 3:8.

The Remnant as the last generation of men

“The woman is a symbol of the church, and the remnant of the church represents the Christians of the last generation of men, living just prior to the second advent. The dragon makes war on these for keeping the commandments of God, Sabbath and all, and having the testimony of Jesus Christ, which, according to the inspired definition of chap. xix, 10, ‘is the spirit of prophecy.’ Here, then, are the causes of the dragon’s warfare upon the remnant. They teach the observance of the ten commandments, and the revival of the gifts, and acknowledge the gift of prophecy among them. When the Devil got one foot upon the fourth commandment, and the other upon the gifts planted in the Christian church b Jesus Christ, then his satanic majesty was filled with revengeful delight. But when the remnant, whom God designs to fit for translation to Heaven without seeing death, ‘ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein,’ then the dragon is wroth, and makes war on them.
“The true spirit of the dragonic host, which is already being somewhat developed, is vividly described in Isa. xxx, 8-13, as being manifested just prior to the sudden destruction of those who hate the pure testimony, and love smooth and deceitful things.” E. G. White,Spiritual Gifts, Vol. III, 26, 27.

Laodicea makes the tragic mistake of believing that laodicea does not get spued out of the mouth of God. The seven churches of Revelation 2 and 3, are both literal, successive churches, rather than eras of the church in which various churches met the description of the the various eras. They are examples of various spiritual conditions. For example, there were many churches that comprised each era of the church. All of the messages, however, applied to each era, as there were overlappings of all the conditions of every message in every era.

Ellen White corroborates this assessment by saying that all of the messages (plural) apply to every church:

“The names of the seven churches are symbolic of the church in different periods of the Christian Era. The number 7 indicates completeness, and is symbolic of the fact that the messages (plural) extend to the end of time, while the symbols used reveal the condition of the church at different periods (eras) in the history of the world.” E. G. White, Acts of the Apostles, 585.

The church triumphant is the 144,000, the Bride of Christ. The MOTHER of the 5 wise virgins who come out of apostasy.

Various NAMES for the 144,000:

  1. church triumphant
  2. Zion
  3. Bride of Christ
  4. Elect of God
  5. The 144,000 become Vegans! With a special mucusless diet like Queen Esther (Queen Esther’s Beauty Diet) Esther 2:9 “She pleased him and won his favor. Immediately he provided her with her beauty treatments and special food. He assigned to her seven female attendants selected from the king’s palace and moved her and her attendants into the best place in the harem.” To maintain her kosher diet, instead of eating the treyf (non-kosher) meats served at the palace of her husband, King Ashasuerus of Persia, she substituted legumes, grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, which, according to tradition, were said to keep her beautiful. To keep her character beautiful and Christlike because it kept her mind clear and able to discern Christ’s voice speaking to her mind.Esther 2:3
    Let the king appoint commissioners in every province of his realm to bring all these beautiful young women into the harem at the citadel of Susa. Let them be placed under the care of Hegai, the king’s eunuch, who is in charge of the women; and let beauty treatments be GIVEN to them.Eating these high-fiber foods help you feel sated, so you are less likely to overeat and put on unwanted pounds. Fiber-rich foods also help your digestive system run more smoothly. (Psst…Mae West maintained that proper elimination was the real key to looking your best.)Esther’s diet was packed with nutrients—magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and more—that promote beautiful, healthy skin. The zinc-rich foods she ate are especially beneficial for skin. Zinc keeps complexions clearer by aiding skin in sloughing and regeneration, and it may reduce acne. It’s essential for the creation of collagen, which keeps skin supple and elastic, preventing wrinkles from forming. And although she had no sunscreen to shield her from UV ray-spawned free radicals, the fatty acids and vitamin E found in the whole grains, as well as in some of the seeds and nuts Esther ate, offered protection from damaging free radicals and preserved her youthful complexion by keeping her skin hydrated.Based on Esther’s palace diet, we’ve chosen a few Persian recipes for you to enjoy this Purim. They’re not only full of beauty, they’re full of flavor too.
THE GUESTS ARE NOT THE BRIDE of Christ, the 144,000, Zion, the church triumphant:
the people of God are said to be GUESTS at the marriage supper.” The Great Controversy 1888, p. 426.2.
“If guests, they cannot be represented also as the bride.” The Great Controversy 1888, p. 426.2Christ in His Sanctuary, p. 104.2
The GUESTS are also known as the Sons and Daughters of God. Also known as the 5 wise virgins who come out and join the Bridegroom and Brides procession into the wedding feast. Sons & Daughters of the Bridal chamber/minds connected to Christ. Spiritual children of the Bridegroom and Bride, the 144,000, faithful men and women represented as angels giving the Loud Cry, the Mother, New Jerusalem, the church triumphant, Zion…The TEMPLE of the living God…our bodies/minds are the sacred dwelling place of the Most High!
Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Psalm 104:1
Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire: Psalm 104:4

Ellen White Says Sinners are Shaken out of Zion, Philadelphia, not Laodicea, and that Laodicea is the Foolish Virgin State of the Church:

“The state of the Church represented by the foolish virgins, is also spoken of as the Laodicean state.” E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, vol. 2, 420, col. 1.

“The church [Zion in context] may appear as about to fall [when the bride Zion has to flee to the wilderness], but it does not fall. It remains [the only church that remains is Zion, the 144,000], while sinners IN ZION will be sifted out–the chaff separated from the precious wheat. This is a terrible ordeal, but nevertheless it must take place. None but those who have been overcoming by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony will be found with the LOYAL AND TRUE, WITHOUT SPOT OR STAIN OF SIN, WITHOUT GUILE IN THEIR MOUTHS [the 144,000 Revelation 14:1-5.]…. The REMNANT thatpurify their souls by obeying the truth gather strength from the trying process, exhibiting the beauty of holiness amid the surrounding apostasy.” E.G White, Letter B — 55 — 1886, pp. 6, 7.

This describes Zion, the church triumphant, the faithful remnant final generation, the 144,000, from which the sinners are shaken. Sinners do not have to ever be members of Zion in order to be shaken out of Zion, any more than the fallen churches of 1844, had to be members of Philadelphia Zion, in order to be shaken out of the heavenly Zion Kingdom church, by rejecting Zion’s message. The entire world will not have to be a member of the heavenly Jerusalem, in order to be shaken out of that kingdom by the loud cry of the bride of Jesus Christ.
The tares are gathered into the midst of apostate Jerusalem, Ezekiel 22:17-31. This is precisely what happened in the type in 70 A.D. Ellen White said that was a prefigure which is a type! Zion is theremnant that go forth OUT OF APOSTATE JERUSALEM, Isaiah 37:31, 32. This remnant is also the Third Angel who selects, seals and binds the wheat for the heavenly garner:

“I then saw the THIRD ANGEL. Said my accompanying angel, ‘Fearful is his work. Awful is his mission. He is the angel that is to select the wheat from the tares, and seal, or bind, the wheat for the heavenly garner.” E.G. White, Early Writings, 118.

“The angel represented in prophecy as delivering this message, symbolizes a class of faithful men, who obedient to the promptings of God’s Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message WAS NOT to be committed to the religious leaders of the people.” E..White, The Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 4, 199, 200.

“The third angel’s message will not be comprehended, the light which will lighten the earth with its glory will be called a false light, by those who refuse to walk in its advancing glory.” E.G. White, Review and Herald, 5-27-1890, p. 321.

“The marriage represents the reception by Christ of His kingdom. The Holy City, the New Jerusalem, which is the capital and representative of the kingdom, is called the ‘the bride, the Lamb’s wife.'” E. G. White, The Great Controversy, 426, 1911 edition.

In a large degree through our publishing houses is to be accomplished the work of that other angel who comes down from heaven with great power and who lightens the earth with his glory [Revelation 18:1].—Testimonies for the Church 7:140 (1902). LAST DAY EVENTS PAGE 209 to 214

(Psalm 68:24 “Your PROCESSION, God, has come into view, the procession of my God and Kinginto the sanctuary.”

Psalm 77:13 KJV “Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?” Jeremiah 2:2 “Go and proclaim in the hearing of Jerusalem: “This is what the LORD says: “‘I remember the devotion of your youth, how as a bride you loved me and followed me through thewilderness, through a land not sown.) already on its way to the gospel feast, (this “procession” or “movement” is already in the wilderness (little time of trouble 3/19/13 to 9/19/16 = see Rev 13:5 Pope Francis being 8th )  means: obscure, veiled, covered, in a “raised field” being prepared to soon stand in the sight of a Holy God without our intercessor, Christ.

Song of Solomon 6:10 “Who is this that appears like the dawn, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, majestic as the stars in procession?”

Genesis 37:9 Joseph’s Dreams

8Then his brothers said to him, “Are you actually going to reign over us? Or are you really going to rule over us?” So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words. 9Now he had still another dream, and related it to his brothers, and said, “Lo, I have had still another dream; and behold, the sun and the moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.” 10He related it to his father and to his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have had? Shall I and your mother and your brothers actually come to bow ourselves down before you to the ground?”…

 
Genesis 37:8
His brothers said to him, “Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.Genesis 37:10
When he told his father as well as his brothers, his father rebuked him and said, “What is this dream you had? Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow down to the ground before you?”
Doesn’t this sound familiar? Just as Joseph’s brothers did not want to accept Joseph’s dream…Adventists do not want to accept the message of the 144,000 [see article here RAINBOW OF GOD’s GLORY: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2neZhb9OpYNRUU2Uk1ydDh1c2s/view?usp=sharing or here http://omega77.tripod.com/rainbowofgodsglory.pdf]
 

 “Why,” they (modern 501c3 Adventist church members) say, “should we not know the Spirit of God, when we have been in the work so many years?”—The Review and Herald Extra, December 23, 1890.

The third angel’s message will not be comprehended, the light which will lighten the earth with its glory will be called a false light, by those who refuse to walk in its advancing glory.—The Review and Herald, May 27, 1890.

Majority of Adventists Brace Themselves Against the Light of the parable of the Ten Virgins that they themselves are fulfilling: BEHOLD! The Bridegroom cometh! GO YE OUT OF ALL 501c3 churches to MEET HIM!!!! Join your mind to Christ! Join yourself to the Law which is God’s mind in Christ’s mind which should be your mind…. the constraining character of Christ in you is the law of God in YOU or the MIND/Law of God in you through Christ in you! This is the message of the Righteousness of Christ in you! The character of Christ in YOU! The thoughts and feelings of Christ in you! The law of LOVE in you! The yoke of SERVICE to others in you!

There is to be in the [Seventh-day Adventist] churches a wonderful manifestation of the power of God, but it will not move upon those who have not humbled themselves before the Lord, and opened the door of the heart by confession and repentance. In the manifestation of that power which lightens the earth with the glory of God, they will see only something which in their blindness they think dangerous, something which will arouse their fears, and they will brace themselves to resist it. Because the Lord does not work according to their ideas and expectations they will oppose the work. “Why,” they say (modern 501c3 Adventist church members), “should we not know the Spirit of God, when we have been in the work so many years?”   (the 501c3 SDA Conference churches has been in the work many years and according to this prophecy they reject the light of the 144,000 and see only something which in their BLINDNESS they think dangerous and arouses their fears and brace themselves to resist it….because the Lord does NOT work according to THEIR ideas and expectations….) The Review and Herald Extra, December 23, 1890.

“The eye salve is the true spiritual discernment that is so wanting among us, for spiritual things must be spiritually discerned.”—{The Review and Herald, April 1, 1890}.

Warning for those who think or say these words: “God is blessing me, so I must be doing all right. I have all, or most of the truth I need. I keep the Sabbath every week and help people.” Don’t think for a second that you are safe until you are standing in the City of God. If you think that you are pretty safe, you need to study more than anyone else. Talents are the material things and abilities God gives you, to work for Him. Don’t take it for granted it’s because you are righteous: Isaiah 45:5 “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:” Psalm 18:32 “It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.” It is character alone that God values. In the greatness of their ignorance, in the poverty of their spirit, they feel that they have attained unto the measure of the full stature of men and women in Christ, when they are mere babes in understanding.

Who enters through the gates into the city of God? Those who keep His commandments. “Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city” (Rev. 22:14).What constitutes the commandments of God? The first four are to love God supremely, the last six, to love our neighbor as ourselves. And can you do this and not show them the way of salvation in and through Christ Jesus?” http://www.whiteestate.org/message/Show_Christ.asp

The law and the gospel are interwoven as warp and woof. Here mercy and truth have met together, and righteousness and peace have kissed each other. We want to come to God’s standard. He has a law governing human intelligences and it is for our happiness to observe it. We are to love God. Love leading to disobedience is the inspiration of the devil; love leading to obedience is the inspiration of Heaven.

144,000 Adventist’s who become vegan leaders who live and give the 7 angels messages with special focus on the 7th day Saturday as Sabbath who are specially chosen by God Himself as His Son’s Bride from 1844 until probation closes for the House of God at the Sunday Law are The Bride of Christ:

The THRONE that GOD and His Son sit’s down on are the sanctified MINDS of the 144,000, out of the throne of God flows living water. Truth=Christ to others…The 144,000 are the Throne of God – they Both make their abode/home with the obedient giver of life – freely you have received – freely give.

The 144,000 represent that ONE STONE, the city of God, New Jerusalem, the Mother of God’s children or His people…the city of God is come down out of Heaven – is God and His Son’s Spirit come down out of Heaven filling His Bride, His City, New Jerusalem with Himself, His Ten Thoughts, the Ten Commandments, which is Christ/truth in us. The Royal perpetual truth/law in us. Truth lived out in our daily choices constrained by the power/character of God Himself through Christ in us, the Law in us is Christ in us, written to or sat down in our minds, truth SETTLED in our minds is Christ and His Father SAT DOWN in our Most Holy place, our mind temple, the seat of God – the two lobes, one seat each for BOTH God and His Son, the sacred secret dwelling place of the Most High, the Sanctuary or temple of the Living God. 

Exodus 25:22 The Mercy Seat

21“You shall put the mercy seat on top of the ark (144,000’s body/mind), and in the ark you shall put the testimony which I will give to you. 22“There I will meet with you; and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, I will speak to you about all that I will give you in commandment for the sons of Israel.

Exodus 25:22 KJV “And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat (our mind, the Throne of God and His Son), from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.”

Out of the 144,000, the Bride of Christ, the Church Triumphant, the ROCK that smites the feet of the image in Daniel 2, that grows in character (power) and fills the whole earth from God’s throneroom the MINDS of the 144,000 remnant Saints comes the testing perfecting message of the latter rain and the Loud Cry:

Revelation 8:5 “Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.”

Revelation 11:19 NIV “Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the ark of his covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a severe hailstorm.”
Revelation 4:5 “From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God.”

Exodus 19:16 “On the morning of the third day (Hosea 6:2 prophecy) there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled.”

Revelation 16:18 “Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.”

Revelation 10:3 “and he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke.”
There is no temple in Heaven because it is the 144,000 who become as transparent gold, the purest of gold which reflects the light or character (Royal perpetual Law) of God Himself through Christ in us. Says Christ, By renouncing your own self-sufficiency, giving up all things, however dear to you, you may buy the gold, the raiment, and the eyesalve that you may see. This is the light, that lights Heaven. The Truth of Christ, the law of God in us shining forth to light/dispel lies/darkness=error=evil=sin. The light of the Sun of Righteousness is to shine forth in good works—in words of truth and deeds of holiness.Christ, the outshining of the Father’s glory, came to the world as its light. He came to represent God to men, and of Him it is written that He was anointed “with the Holy Ghost and with power,” and “went about doing good.” Acts 10:38. In the synagogue at Nazareth He said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18, 19. This was the work He commissioned His disciples to do. “Ye are the light of the world,” He said. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14, 16.The temple (144,000 Bride of Christ, the church triumphant) rebuilt in 3 days… 2 Peter 3:8 day for a year prophecy… See Hosea 6:2 “After two days (2 thousand years after Christ’s death) will he revive us: in the third day (the earth is nearly 6,000 years old = raised up to live 1,000 years in Heaven while earth rests 1000 years from sin and then will be restored) he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight (without a mediator).”Zechariah 3:9
See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says the LORD Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day.The one stone is Christ…the chief cornerstone – He is the mind of His Body – the 144,000 are the hands and feet of Christ. You cannot separate the head from the body without killing the person.

This is what the LORD says to me: “As a lion growls, a great lion over its prey– and though a whole band of shepherds is called together against it, it is not frightened by their shouts or disturbed by their clamor– so the LORD Almighty will come down to do battle on Mount Zion (144,000) and on its heights.Psalm 29:3

Ezekiel 1:24
When the creatures (144,000 Chariots of God) moved, I heard the sound of their wings (Revelation 12:14), like the roar of rushing waters, like the voice of the Almighty, like the tumult of an army. When they stood still, they lowered their wings.

Revelation 12:14 “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” These two WINGS are the TWO CHARTS of historical Adventism: The 1843 and 1850 charts.

“Then a cloudy chariot (144,000), with wheels like flaming fire, surrounded by angels, came to where Jesus was. He stepped into the chariot and was borne to the holiest, where the Father sat. There I beheld Jesus, a great High Priest, standing before the Father. On the hem of His garment was a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate. Those who rose up with Jesus would send up their faith to Him in the holiest, and pray, “My Father, give us Thy Spirit (Words=John 6:63).” Then Jesus would breathe upon them the Holy Ghost. In that breath was light, power, and much love, joy, and peace.” Early Writings, p. 55.1

Said the angel, “List ye!” Soon I heard a voice like many musical instruments all sounding in perfect strains, sweet and harmonious. It surpassed any music I had ever heard, seeming to be full of mercy, compassion, and elevating, holy joy. It thrilled through my whole being. Said the angel, “Look ye!” My attention was then turned to the company I had seen, who were mightily shaken. I was shown those whom I had before seen weeping and praying in agony of spirit. The company of guardian angels around them had been doubled, and they were clothed with an armour from their head to their feet. They moved in exact order, like a company of soldiers. Their countenances expressed the severe conflict which they had endured, the agonising struggle they had passed through. Yet their features, marked with severe internal anguish, now shone with the light and glory of heaven. They had obtained the victory, and it called forth from them the deepest gratitude and holy, sacred joy.

The numbers of this company had lessened. Some had been shaken out and left by the way. The careless and indifferent, who did not join with those who prized victory and salvation enough to perseveringly plead and agonise for it, did not obtain it, and they were left behind in darkness, and their places were immediately filled by others taking hold of the truth and coming into the ranks. Evil angels still pressed around them, but could have no power over them. (continues…) EW 269-273

The mighty shaking has commenced and will go on, and all will be shaken out who are not willing to take a bold and unyielding stand for the truth and to sacrifice for God and His cause. The angel said, “Think ye that any will be compelled to sacrifice? No, no. It must be a freewill offering. It will take all to buy the field.” I cried to God to spare His people, some of whom were fainting and dying. Then I saw that the judgements of the Almighty were speedily coming, and I begged of the angel to speak in his language to the people. Said he, “All the thunders and lightnings of Mount Sinai would not move those who will not be moved by the plain truths of the Word of God, neither would an angel’s message awake them.” EW 50

As Satan influenced Esau to march against Jacob, so he will stir up the wicked to destroy God’s people in the time of trouble. And as he accused Jacob, he will urge his accusations against the people of God. He numbers the world as his subjects; but the little company who keep the commandments of God are resisting his supremacy. If he could blot them from the earth, his triumph would be complete. He sees that holy angels are guarding them, and he infers that their sins have been pardoned; but he does not know that their cases have been decided in the sanctuary above. He has an accurate knowledge of the sins which he has tempted them to commit, and he presents these before God in the most exaggerated light, representing this people to be just as deserving as himself of exclusion from the favour of God. He declares that the Lord cannot in justice forgive their sins and yet destroy him and his angels. He claims them as his prey and demands that they be given into his hands to destroy. GC11 618

So FULLY do the 144,000 reveal Christ that people will be charmed by their presence. As they hear the gracious words that fall from their lips, they are convicted of truth….

Christ is a perfect revelation OF God. “No man hath seen God at any time,” he says; “the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” Only by knowing Christ can we know God. And as we behold him, we shall be changed into his image, prepared to meet him at his coming.

So fully did Christ reveal the Father, that the messengers sent by the Pharisees to take him were charmed by his presence. As they heard the gracious words that fell from his lips, they forgot their commission. And when, returning without him, they were asked by the Pharisees, “Why have ye not brought him?” they answered, “Never man spake like this man.” RH February 3, 1903, par. 9Maranatha, p. 76.5

Golden bowl = God the Father – the OIL is Christ’s character, reflected perfectly in the 144,000 heavenly messengers 

But no man can impart that which he himself has not received. In the work of God, humanity can originate nothing. No man can by his own effort make himself a light bearer for God. It was the golden oil emptied by the heavenly messengers into the golden tubes, to be conducted from the golden bowl into the lamps of the sanctuary, that produced a continuous bright and shining light. It is the love of God continually transferred to man that enables him to impart light. Into the hearts of all who are united to God by faith the golden oil of love flows freely, to shine out again in good works, in real, heartfelt service for God.

In the great and measureless gift of the Holy Spirit are contained all of heaven’s resources. It is not because of any restriction on the part of God that the riches of His grace do not flow earthward to men. If all were willing to receive, all would become filled with His Spirit.

From the two olive trees the golden oil was emptied through the golden pipes into the bowl of the candlestick, and thence into the golden lamps that gave light to the sanctuary. So from the holy ones that stand in God’s presence His Spirit is imparted to the human instrumentalities who are consecrated to His service. The mission of the two anointed ones is to communicate to God’s people that heavenly grace which alone can make His word a lamp to the feet and a light to the path. “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6.

In the parable, all the ten virgins went out to meet the bridegroom. 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 near approach, and confidently expect His appearing. But as in the parable, so it is now. A time of waiting intervenes, 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 their vessels with their lamps. They are destitute of the Holy Spirit.

Without the Spirit of God a knowledge of His word is of no avail. The theory of truth, unaccompanied by the Holy Spirit, cannot quicken the soul or sanctify the heart. One may be familiar with the commands and promises of the Bible; but unless the Spirit of God sets the truth home, the character will not be transformed. Without the enlightenment of the Spirit, men will not be able to distinguish truth from error, and they will fall under the masterful temptations of Satan.

The class represented by the foolish virgins are not hypocrites. They have a regard for the truth, they have advocated the truth, they are attracted to those who believe the truth; but they have not yielded themselves to the Holy Spirit’s working. They have not fallen upon the Rock, Christ Jesus, and permitted their old nature to be broken up. This class are represented also by the stony-ground hearers. They receive the word with readiness, but they fail of assimilating its principles. Its influence is not abiding. The Spirit works upon man’s heart, according to his desire and consent implanting in him a new nature; but the class represented by the foolish virgins have been content with a superficial work. They do not know God. They have not studied His character; they have not held communion with Him; therefore they do not know how to trust, how to look and live. Their service to God degenerates into a form. “They come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as My people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.” Ezekiel 33:31. The apostle Paul points out that this will be the special characteristic of those who live just before Christ’s second coming. He says, “In the last days perilous times shall come: for men shall be lovers of their own selves; … lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

This is the class that in time of peril are found crying, Peace and safety. They lull their hearts into security, and dream not of danger. When startled from their lethargy, they discern their destitution, and entreat others to supply their lack; but in spiritual things no man can make up another’s deficiency. The grace of God has been freely offered to every soul. The message of the gospel has been heralded, “Let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17. But character is not transferable. No man can believe for another. No man can receive the Spirit for another. No man can impart to another the character which is the fruit of the Spirit’s working. “Though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it [the land], as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.” Ezekiel 14:20.

It is in a crisis that character is revealed. When the earnest voice proclaimed at midnight, “Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him,” and the sleeping virgins were roused from their slumbers, it was seen who had made preparation for the event. Both parties were taken unawares; but one was prepared for the emergency, and the other was found without preparation. So now, a sudden and unlooked-for calamity, something that brings the soul face to face with death, will show whether there is any real faith in the promises of God. It will show whether the soul is sustained by grace. The great final test comes at the close of human probation, when it will be too late for the soul’s need to be supplied.

The ten virgins are watching in the evening of this earth’s history. All claim to be Christians. All have a call, a name, a lamp, and all profess to be doing God’s service. All apparently wait for Christ’s appearing. But five are unready. Five will be found surprised, dismayed, outside the banquet hall.

At the final day, many will claim admission to Christ’s kingdom, saying, “We have eaten and drunk in Thy presence, and Thou hast taught in our streets.” “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?” But the answer is, “I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from Me.” Luke 13:26; Matthew 7:22; Luke 13:27. In this life they have not entered into fellowship with Christ; therefore they know not the language of heaven, they are strangers to its joy. “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.” 1 Corinthians 2:11.

Saddest of all words that ever fell on mortal ear are those words of doom, “I know you not.” The fellowship of the Spirit, which you have slighted, could alone make you one with the joyous throng at the marriage feast. In that scene you cannot participate. Its light would fall on blinded eyes, its melody upon deaf ears. Its love and joy could awake no chord of gladness in the world-benumbed heart. You are shut out from heaven by your own unfitness for its companionship.

We cannot be ready to meet the Lord by waking when the cry is heard, “Behold, the Bridegroom!” and then gathering up our empty lamps to have them replenished. We cannot keep Christ apart from our lives here, and yet be fitted for His companionship in heaven.

In the parable the wise virgins had oil in their vessels with their lamps. Their light burned with undimmed flame through the night of watching. It helped to swell the illumination for the bridegroom’s honor. Shining out in the darkness, it helped to illuminate the way to the home of the bridegroom, to the marriage feast.

So the followers of Christ are to shed light into the darkness of the world. Through the Holy Spirit, God’s word is a light as it becomes a transforming power in the life of the receiver. By implanting in their hearts the principles of His word, the Holy Spirit develops in men the attributes of God. The light of His glory—His character—is to shine forth in His followers. Thus they are to glorify God, to lighten the path to the Bridegroom’s home, to the city of God, to the marriage supper of the Lamb.

The coming of the bridegroom was at midnight—the darkest hour. So the coming of Christ will take place in the darkest period of this earth’s history. The days of Noah and Lot pictured the condition of the world just before the coming of the Son of man. The Scriptures pointing forward to this time declare that Satan will work with all power and “with all deceivableness of unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9, 10. His working is plainly revealed by the rapidly increasing darkness, the multitudinous errors, heresies, and delusions of these last days. Not only is Satan leading the world captive, but his deceptions are leavening the professed churches of our Lord Jesus Christ. The great apostasy will develop into darkness deep as midnight, impenetrable as sackcloth of hair. To God’s people it will be a night of trial, a night of weeping, a night of persecution for the truth’s sake. But out of that night of darkness God’s light will shine.

He causes “the light to shine out of darkness.” 2 Corinthians 4:6. When “the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep,” “the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.” Genesis 1:2, 3. So in the night of spiritual darkness, God’s word goes forth, “Let there be light.” To His people He says, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.” Isaiah 60:1.

“Behold,” says the Scripture, “the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people; but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee.” Isaiah 60:2.

It is the darkness of misapprehension of God that is enshrouding the world. Men are losing their knowledge of His character. It has been misunderstood and misinterpreted. At this time a message from God is to be proclaimed, a message illuminating in its influence and saving in its power. His character is to be made known. Into the darkness of the world is to be shed the light of His glory, the light of His goodness, mercy, and truth.

This is the work outlined by the prophet Isaiah in the words, “O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.” Isaiah 40:9, 10.

Those who wait for the Bridegroom’s coming are to say to the people, “Behold your God.” The last rays of merciful light, the last message of mercy to be given to the world, is a revelation of His character of love. The children of God are to manifest His glory. In their own life and character they are to reveal what the grace of God has done for them.

The light of the Sun of Righteousness is to shine forth in good works—in words of truth and deeds of holiness.

Christ, the outshining of the Father’s glory, came to the world as its light. He came to represent God to men, and of Him it is written that He was anointed “with the Holy Ghost and with power,” and “went about doing good.” Acts 10:38. In the synagogue at Nazareth He said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18, 19. This was the work He commissioned His disciples to do. “Ye are the light of the world,” He said. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14, 16.

This is the work which the prophet Isaiah describes when he says, “Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily; and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rereward.” Isaiah 58:7, 8.

Thus in the night of spiritual darkness God’s glory is to shine forth through His church in lifting up the bowed down and comforting those that mourn.

All around us are heard the wails of a world’s sorrow. On every hand are the needy and distressed. It is ours to aid in relieving and softening life’s hardships and misery.

Practical work will have far more effect than mere sermonizing. We are to give food to the hungry, clothing to the naked, and shelter to the homeless. And we are called to do more than this. The wants of the soul, only the love of Christ can satisfy. If Christ is abiding in us, our hearts will be full of divine sympathy. The sealed fountains of earnest, Christlike love will be unsealed.

God calls not only for our gifts for the needy, but for our cheerful countenance, our hopeful words, our kindly handclasp. When Christ healed the sick, He laid His hands upon them. So should we come in close touch with those whom we seek to benefit.

There are many from whom hope has departed. Bring back the sunshine to them. Many have lost their courage. Speak to them words of cheer. Pray for them. There are those who need the bread of life. Read to them from the word of God. Upon many is a soul sickness which no earthly balm can reach nor physician heal. Pray for these souls, bring them to Jesus. Tell them that there is a balm in Gilead and a Physician there.

Light is a blessing, a universal blessing, pouring forth its treasures on a world unthankful, unholy, demoralized. So it is with the light of the Sun of Righteousness. The whole earth, wrapped as it is in the darkness of sin, and sorrow, and pain, is to be lighted with the knowledge of God’s love. From no sect, rank, or class of people is the light shining from heaven’s throne to be excluded.

The message of hope and mercy is to be carried to the ends of the earth. Whosoever will, may reach forth and take hold of God’s strength and make peace with Him, and he shall make peace. No longer are the heathen to be wrapped in midnight darkness. The gloom is to disappear before the bright beams of the Sun of Righteousness. The power of hell has been overcome.

But no man can impart that which he himself has not received. In the work of God, humanity can originate nothing. No man can by his own effort make himself a light bearer for God. It was the golden oil emptied by the heavenly messengers into the golden tubes, to be conducted from the golden bowl into the lamps of the sanctuary, that produced a continuous bright and shining light. It is the love of God continually transferred to man that enables him to impart light. Into the hearts of all who are united to God by faith the golden oil of love flows freely, to shine out again in good works, in real, heartfelt service for God.

In the great and measureless gift of the Holy Spirit are contained all of heaven’s resources. It is not because of any restriction on the part of God that the riches of His grace do not flow earthward to men. If all were willing to receive, all would become filled with His Spirit.

 

Did you get that? “What is the shame of this nakedness and poverty? “…of separating ourselves from God!” If we as a “professed” Adventist have rashly denied the BRIGHT light set up behind us {our historical SDA foundational doctrines} by rejecting the one and only true God, “professed” Adventists today are shamefully naked! Without God and His power! “Why is there so dim a perception of the true spiritual condition of the church?  Has not blindness fallen upon the watchmen standing on the walls of Zion?…Who can truthfully say, ‘Our gold is tried in the fire; our garments are unspotted by the world’?  I saw our Instructor pointing to the garments of so-called righteousness.  Stripping them off, He laid bare the defilement beneath.  Then He {Christ} said to me: ‘Can you not see how they have pretentiously covered up their defilement and rottenness of character?  ‘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, vol 8, p 248-250, April 21, 1903}

“Behold the Bridegroom cometh. Jesus turned from them with a frown. They had slighted and rejected him. Those who received the message were wrapped in a cloud of glory. They waited and watched and prayed to know the will of God. They greatly feared to offend him. I saw Satan and his angels seeking to shut this divine light from the people of God; but as long as the waiting ones cherished the light, and kept their eyes raised from earth to Jesus, Satan could have no power to deprive them of this precious light. The message given from heaven enraged Satan and his angels, and those who professed to love Jesus, but despised his coming, scorned and derided the faithful, trusting ones. But an angel marked every insult, every slight, every abuse they received from their professed brethren. Very many raised their voices to cry, Behold the Bridegroom cometh, and left their brethren who did not love the appearing of Jesus, and who would not suffer them to dwell upon his second coming. I saw Jesus turn his face from those who rejected and despised his coming, and then he bade angels lead his people out from among the unclean, lest they should be defiledThose obedient to the messages stood out free and united. A holy and excellent light shone upon them. They renounced the world, tore their affections from it, and sacrificed their earthly interests. They gave up their earthly treasure, and their anxious gaze was directed to heaven, expecting to see their loved Deliverer. A sacred, holy joy beamed upon their countenances, and told of the peace and joy which reigned within. Jesus bade his angels go and strengthen them, for the hour of their trial drew onI saw that these waiting ones were not yet tried as they must beThey were not free from errors. And I saw the mercy and goodness of God in sending a warning to the people of earth, and REPEATED MESSAGES to bring them up to a point of time, to lead them to a diligent search of themselves, that they might divest themselves of errors which have been handed down from the heathen and papists. Through these messages God has been BRINGING OUT his people where he can work for them in greater power, and where they can keep ALL His commandments.” —{Spiritual Gifts, Volume 1, Page 157}

 

“The eye salve is the true spiritual discernment that is so wanting among us, for spiritual things must be spiritually discerned.”
—{The Review and Herald, April 1, 1890}.

Warning for those who think or say these words: “God is blessing me, so I must be doing all right. I have all, or most of the truth I need. I keep the Sabbath every week and help people.” Don’t think for a second that you are safe until you are standing in the City of God. If you think that you are pretty safe, you need to study more than anyone else. Talents are the material things and abilities God gives you, to work for Him. Don’t take it for granted it’s because you are righteous: Isaiah 45:5 “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:” Psalm 18:32 “It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.” It is character alone that God values. In the greatness of their ignorance, in the poverty of their spirit, they feel that they have attained unto the measure of the full stature of men and women in Christ, when they are mere babes in understanding.

Says Christ, By renouncing your own self-sufficiency, giving up all things, however dear to you, you may buy the gold, the raiment, and the eyesalve that you may see.

Zechariah 1:10
Then the man standing among the myrtle trees explained, “They are the ones the LORD has sent to go throughout the earth.”

“The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches; and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.” These seven churches are represented by “seven lamps.” See Zechariah 4:2, “And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top if it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps which were upon the top thereof.” These seven lamps are called “the eyes of the Lord which run to and fro through the whole earth.” See Zechariah 4:10.

Revelation 8:2
And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.

Haggai 2:3
Who of you is left who saw this house (temple today=144,000) in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Does it not seem to you like nothing?  (think of literal Solomon’s temple and then think of Adam and Eve and how short in stature and mind we have become when compared to the first Adam reconciled back to God in the second Adam… the last generation of people living today show the terrible affects and results of sin in all ways…)

Revelation 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars (12×12,000=144,000) “When Christ came into the world, he said, “… but a body have you prepared for me;” Hebrews 10:5. Jesus wants to inhabit us, live inside the midst of us and surround us with His rainbow of glory as promised so long ago, as he inhabited or dwelt in the human body (144,000 Bride) God prepared for Jesus.

Nehemiah 4:2
and in the presence of his associates and the army of Samaria, he said, “What are those feeble Jews doing? Will they restore their wall? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they finish in a day? Can they bring the stones back to life from those heaps of rubble–burned as they are?”

“When Christ came into the world, he said, “… but a body have you prepared for me;” Hebrews 10:5. Jesus wants to inhabit us, live inside the midst of us and surround us with His rainbow of glory as promised so long ago, as he inhabited or dwelt in the human body God prepared for Jesus. The rainbow coat of glory encircling the remnant of God represents the combined power of mercy and justice. Mercy invites us to enter through the gates into the city of God, and justice is sacrificed to accord to every obedient soul full privileges as a member of the royal family, a child of the heavenly King.

Exodus 27:21
In the tent of meeting, outside the curtain that shields the ark of the covenant law, Aaron and his sons are to keep the lamps burning before the LORD from evening till morning. This is to be a lasting ordinance among the Israelites for the generations to come.Exodus 29:42
“For the generations to come this burnt offering is to be made regularly at the entrance to the tent of meeting, before the LORD. There I will meet you and speak to you;Exodus 29:43
there also I will meet with the Israelites, and the place will be consecrated by my glory.Exodus 30:6
Put the altar in front of the curtain that shields the ark of the covenant law–before the atonement cover that is over the tablets of the covenant law–where I will meet with you.Exodus 30:36
Grind some of it to powder and place it in front of the ark of the covenant law in the tent of meeting, where I will meet with you. It shall be most holy to you.Leviticus 1:1
The LORD called to Moses and spoke to him from the tent of meeting. He said,Leviticus 16:2
The LORD said to Moses: “Tell your brother Aaron that he is not to come whenever he chooses into the Most Holy Place behind the curtain in front of the atonement cover on the ark, or else he will die. For I will appear in the cloud over the atonement cover.Numbers 7:89
When Moses entered the tent of meeting to speak with the LORD, he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the atonement cover on the ark of the covenant law. In this way the LORD spoke to him.Numbers 17:4
Place them in the tent of meeting in front of the ark of the covenant law, where I meet with you.1 Samuel 4:4
So the people sent men to Shiloh, and they brought back the ark of the covenant of the LORD Almighty, who is enthroned between the cherubim. And Eli’s two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God.2 Samuel 6:2
He and all his men went to Baalah in Judah to bring up from there the ark of God, which is called by the Name, the name of the LORD Almighty, who is enthroned between the cherubim on the ark.2 Kings 19:15
And Hezekiah prayed to the LORD: “LORD, the God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.1 Chronicles 13:6
David and all Israel went to Baalah of Judah (Kiriath Jearim) to bring up from there the ark of God the LORD, who is enthroned between the cherubim–the ark that is called by the Name.

eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him; and all kindred of the earth shall wail because of him; even so, amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” And why all this descriptive grandeur in the address to these seven churches, if they only were meant? Surely there were other churches of equal importance at that day. Where were the churches at Corinth, Cappadocia, Galatia, Thessalonica, Philippi, Collosse, Rome, Jerusalem, Bithynia, etc.? Our text shows that the seven churches were to be understood in a figurative or mystical sense. “The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches; and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.” These seven churches are represented by “seven lamps.” See Zechariah 4:2, “And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top if it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps which were upon the top thereof.” These seven lamps are called “the eyes of the Lord which run to and fro through the whole earth.” See Zechariah 4:10. If this is true, then it readily follows that the seven churches of Asia are only used as a figure representing the church “through the whole earth.” Again: the seven lamps, which are the seven churches, are called the seven spirits of God. Revelation 4:5, “And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God.” I have clearly proved, and I think it will be admitted by all, that the “seven eyes of the Lord,” and “the seven spirits of God,” are the seven churches to whom John was directed to write or dedicate his book, the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

And I will now show that these comprehended the whole church through the whole earth. See Revelation 5:6, “And I beheld, and lo! in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a lamb as it had ben slain, having seven horns,and seven eyes, which are the” seven spirits of God sent forth into

Church becomes Laodicean 1852 (June 10) “Many who profess to be looking for the speedy coming of Christ, are becoming conformed to this world, and seek more earnestly the applause of those around them, than the approbation of God. They are cold and formal, like the nominal church, that they but a short time since separated from. The words addressed to the Laodicean Church, describe their present condition perfectly….And unless they heed the counsel of the ‘faithful and True Witness,’ and zealously repent, and obtain ‘gold tried in the fire,’ ‘white raiment,’ and ‘eye-salve,’ he will spue them out of his mouth.” E.G. White, Review and Herald, June 10, 1852, Vol. 1, p. 18, col. 2.


GC.458.001 It was not the will of God that Israel should wander forty years in the wilderness; He desired to lead them directly to the land of Canaan and establish them there, a holy, happy people. But “they could not enter in because of unbelief.” Hebrews 3:19. Because of their backsliding and apostasy they perished in the desert, and others were raised up to enter the Promised Land. In like manner, it was not the will of God that the coming of Christ should be so long delayed and His people should remain so many years in this world of sin and sorrow. But unbelief separated them from God. As they refused to do the work which He had appointed them, others were raised up to proclaim the message. In mercy to the world, Jesus delays His coming, that sinners may have an opportunity to hear the warning and find in Him a shelter before the wrath of God shall be poured out.

“But there were so many to jest and ridicule that they partook of the same spirit, resisted the invitations of mercy, refused to reform, and were soon among the boldest and most defiant scoffers; for none are so reckless, and go to such lengths in sin, as those who have once had light, but have resisted the convicting Spirit of God. Thus while God was working to draw man to himself, man, in his rebellion, was drawing away from God, and continually resisting the pleadings of infinite love.” ST April 1, 1886, par. 3

“I saw those who have been baptized as a door into the churches, would have to be baptized again as a door into the faith. Those who have not been baptized since 1844 will have to be before Jesus comes. And some I saw would not make progress till the duty was performed.” Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 3.8
“The angel said, some tried too hard to believe. Faith is so simple they look above it. Satan has deceived some, and got them to looking at their own unworthiness. I saw they must look away from self to the worthiness of Jesus, and throw themselves just as they are, needy, dependent upon His mercy, and draw by faith strength and nourishment from Him.” –Ellen G. White Ms. 16, 1850, p. 2. (July 20, 1850.)

“I saw Satan would work more powerfully now than ever he has before. He knows that his time is short and that the sealing of the saints will place them beyond his power and he will now work in every way that he can, and will try his every insinuation to get the saints off their guard and get them asleep on the present truth or doubting it so as to prevent their being sealed with the seal of the living God.”–Ellen G. White Ms. 7, 1850, pp. 2-3 (August 24, 1850). Identical, in part, to Ms. 13, 1850.

We must today seek God and be determined that we will not rest satisfied without His presence. We should watch and work and pray as though this were the last day that would be granted us. How intensely earnest, then, would be our life. How closely would we follow Jesus in all our words and deeds..” Maranatha, p. 41.3

 
“Moses had been disappointed and grieved by the continual rebellion of Israel. Notwithstanding all his prayers and labors during their forty years’ journeying, only two of all the adults in the vast army that left Egypt, were found so faithful that they could see the promised land. As Moses reviewed the result of his labor, his life of trial and sacrifice seemed to have been almost in vain.” ST March 31, 1881, par. 2

“How many I saw coming up to the falling of the plagues without a shelter. Receive ye the Holy Ghost.” These are the words I sang. I sang them over and over again. They could hear it all over the campground, and they came together; but before that, the Lord showed me how they would wring their hands as the plagues were falling. The Lord can show anything in just a moment, better than he could tell it to us. And so he showed me how they would wring their hands, and that put on me a greater burden than ever. Well, that is when they arrested us….” Selected Messages Book 3, p. 366.4

The Harvest Message – How to GET the Character of Christ!

Most Adventists don’t even know what the Righteousness of Christ is, let alone how to get it. Many of us have heard since we were children “Righteousness by Faith”. We have studied about 1888. Many books have been written about the 1888 SDA camp-meeting fiasco. But, most have not read the many books about 1888, and many of those just don’t “get it” either.

Our God is mighty to save, the “whosoevers,” from “whatsoever,” even “to the uttermost.” through His Son Jesus Christ, the “door”, the “gate”, the “narrow way”. Narrow because IT IS ONLY THROUGH JESUS CHRIST THE ONE AND ONLY LIVING SON OF THE ONLY LIVING GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH! Want proof? John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by ME.”

This is the electronic age. We want answers to our questions NOW, instantly! When you type a search phrase into Google, you want it to sort through the millions of sites and come up with the most relevant answer right now, instantly. Waiting more than 3 seconds for a answer will make you go to another search engine to see if that one can do better. So, what if you typed in the search phrase “How to get the character of Christ today”? What would come up? About 54,500,000 results in 0.44 seconds! That was LESS than a SECOND!

In 1900, before Google, Ellen White told us why Christ was delaying His Second coming. But most struggle to know what it means exactly. Here’s the quotes:

(1900) “Christ is waiting with longing desire (like a bridegroom waits for His betrothed/fiancé to become his wife – like Jacob waited AND worked for Rachel to become HIS for 7 years!) for the manifestation of Himself in His church. When the character OF Christ (NOT SOMEONE ELSE!) shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own” (Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 69).

(1900) “Had the purpose of God been carried out by His people in giving to the world the message of mercy, Christ would, ere this, have come to the earth, and the saints would have received their welcome into the city of God” (Testimonies for the Church, vol. 6, p. 449).

Why has it taken 115 years since Ellen White told us that? It appears the SDA church organization as a whole is not more Holy or Perfect like Christ wants us to be; instead we are WORSE off! Then you hear the smooth teaching…the excuse for sin in the church: The wheat and tares are to grow together until the harvest. OK. So, the tares use their unholy influence to attempt to corrupt the wheat UNTIL the HARVEST. THE HARVEST, folks, THE HARVEST! is when the SEPARATION takes place. THEN the excuse is, but we are WAITING for the ANGELS to do the separating, because only the ANGELS KNOW who is a “wheat” or a “tare”.

So to answer in less than a second what “Righteousness by Faith” is AND what the Righteousness of Christ means exactly:

The “Righteousness of Christ” just exchange the WORD “Righteousness” for “Character”. So it would read “Character by Faith” or “Character of Christ”! See how easy that was? Now, since NOTHING we can do of ourselves to MAKE ourselves Christlike, we must do EVERYTHING in the POWER/Character of Christ ONLY. So that means even our own “faith” is too weak. So what can we do? Claim Christ’s FAITH, His FAITH as our very own “Faith”.  

  • Say, Dear Jesus, I claim YOUR faith as my own. I invite you into my mind to make my character “Holy” which means “Perfect” like yours today. I claim Luke 21:15 where you have promised “For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries (opponents/enemies) will be able to resist (withstand) or contradict (refute). I plead with you for your promised blessing that you “will give me words and wisdom that none of my enemies will be able to oppose or prove wrong.” Because you also have promised in James 3:2 that “Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.” Jesus. Help me to be like you today, never at fault in what I say. Give me YOUR WORDS to speak, not mine. Please make my thoughts like yours, “Holy” and “Perfect” in constant agreement with our God and Father constantly. Please fill me with yourself. You promised that YOU are the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE, so I am asking you to fill my mind with your mind which is the mind of God, which is the Ten Commandments. Please write the Ten Commandments which are the thought of God made audible through you in our minds. I pray this and claim John 6:37 as your promise “him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” for myself and for all those who are yours, In Jesus name Amen.

Now believe it is so BECAUSE Christ has promised it in the Bible which is the WORD OF GOD. Now, Remember what FEAST the 5 WISE VIRGINS partake of? It is the Lamb of God. The WORD of God. Christ the Son of God. The Bible verse promises ALL point to Christ. Claim them as your WORDS. They are ALIVE and FULL of POWER, which means CHARACTER.

Character IS power.” {COL 340.2} defined further in Gal 5:22-24 “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”

What does “Character” consist of exactly?

“The thoughts and feelings combined make up the moral character.”  Messages to Young People, p. 92.1

Merriam-Webster says “Character” is “The mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.” Also known as  our  nature, personality, temper, figure, disposition.

R. & H., Book 2, p. 530: – “Compassion beamed from his [Christ’s] countenance (a person’s face or facial expression.), and his conduct was characterized by grace, humility, truth, and love. Every member of his church militant must manifest the same qualities, if he would join the church triumphant.” {RH, November 17, 1891 par. 12}

If you want Christ’s character it means TRUTH. Christ is the TRUTH. God’s law is TRUTH.  “Stand therefore, having your loins gird about with Truth (the Verity of God’s Word is CHRIST! His MIND, His PRESENCE AND POWER=TRUTH/LAW/CHARACTER/RIGHTEOUSNESS IN US!) . . . !” Ephesians 6:14

“Christian character is not achieved in an instant, but day after day we are to add to our faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge, and to knowledge temperance, and to temperance patience, and to patience brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness charity. It is in this way that we are to be made ready for the coming of Christ.” RH April 21, 1891, par. 7

So, we have come up with several important questions here that need to be answered QUICKLY if we are going to get ready for Christ to come get us QUICKLY.

Question number 1) How do we obtain that elusive character (Righteousness) of Christ that we all so desperately need? 2 Peter 1:4 says that we get the character of Christ by claiming the Bible verse promises as our very own prize! ” “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature (Godly Character=Christ’s Righteousness/character), having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (evil desires).” Claim Jude 1:24 “Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.” Claim John 6:37 “him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

Remember, it was as hard for Christ NOT to use His absolute Divine (Godly) power (character/influence/Righteousness) as it is for us to USE it! Christ had to live exactly as we do. He could NOT use any power we ourselves do not have access to use.

“It was a difficult task for the Prince of life to carry out the plan which He had undertaken for the salvation of man, in clothing His divinity with humanity. He had received honor in the heavenly courts, and was familiar with absolute power. It was as difficult for Him to keep the level of humanity as for men to rise above the low level of their depraved natures (sinful character) and be partakers (sharers) of the divine nature (Godly character).” Ellen White,  RH April 1, 1875, par. 2

So to answer question number one quickly and simply: Find and claim specific Bible verses that fit your particular situation as your OWN WORDS. “When we learn the power of God’s Word (John 5:39), these are the questions we will ask for every situation: What is God’s Command? And What IS His Promise? Knowing these, we shall obey the one, and trust the other.” Ellen White, The Desire of Ages, p. 121.2  Learn more about the power (character) of God’s Word here.

Only he who receives the Scriptures as the voice of God speaking to himself is a true learner. He trembles at the Word; for to him it is a living reality. {COL 59.2}

A knowledge of the truth depends not so much upon strength of intellect as upon pureness of purpose, the simplicity of an earnest, dependent faith. To those who in humility of heart seek for divine guidance, angels of God draw near. The Holy Spirit is given to open to them the rich treasures of the truth. {COL 59.3}

God bids us fill the mind with great thoughts, pure thoughts. He desires us to meditate upon His love and mercy, to study His wonderful work in the great plan of redemption. Then clearer and still clearer will be our perception of truth, higher, holier, our desire for purity of heart and clearness of thought. The soul dwelling in the pure atmosphere of holy thought will be transformed by communion with God through the study of Scriptures. {COL 60.1}

The object of the Christian life is fruit bearing–the reproduction of Christ’s character in the believer, that it may be reproduced in others. {COL 67.1}

Now, on to question number 2.

Question number 2) What IS the Harvest message that separates the wheat from the tares? Or you can say, the foolish virgin (a “tare”) from the wise virgin (a “wheat”). “To those who GO OUT to meet the Bridegroom is this message given.”—{ Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 420.3} Go OUT of WHAT? Go out of apostasy to meet the truth. Leviticus 20:26 tells us: “And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.” Christ says HE HAS SEVERED YOU FROM OTHER PEOPLE TO BE HIS ALONE. Divide by cutting or slicing, especially suddenly and forcibly. Put an end to (a connection or relationship); break off. Synonyms: cut off, chop off, detach, disconnect, dissever, separate, part. TRUTH SEPARATES YOU (a wheat filled with Christ) from the TARES who are filled with Satan’s character. Christ does NOT want you to partake of any error. Do NOT sit under the tree of the knowledge of GOOD AND EVIL thinking your soul is going to be SAFE from Satan. He loves to mix truth with error and confuse the issue, blur the line between truth and error, and you think, oh, this once I’ll take a tiny bit of that apple of error. It couldn’t be THAT bad. Look what that tiny bite did to Eve. Don’t make Eve’s mistake too. The 5 wise virgins (virgin means professed truth, talk truth…all TEN VIRGINS TALK TRUTH, but only the 5 wise OBEY TRUTH and put it into practice in their daily choices…by going OUT to MEET the BRIDEGROOM. CHRIST. Studying the Scriptures with an intensity before unknown, pray more and talk less.) Go out or away do not mingle with or associate with those who do not obey all Ten Commandments. This means individuals as well as churches. Christ will lead you to who you are to share Him with – share His character with others…HE WILL SHOW YOU, teach you. Just ask Him to. Claim Jer 33:3 as your very own. You will be AMAZED every single day that you claim that special Bible promise. “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

This is WHO we are to FELLOWSHIP with: 1 John 1:3 “”And truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.” Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Two or three could mean, God, His Son and you! But don’t ever forget this: Any connection with infidels and unbelievers which would identify us with them is forbidden by the word. We are to come out from them and be separate. In no case are we to link ourselves with them in their plans or work. E.G. White, FE 482. Learn more here.

Bottom line, Quick answer: There are no 501c3 non-profit/tax exempt churches today that obey the Ten Commandments. You cannot associate with nor become a member with ANY 501c3 church and JOIN them in their work or plans unless you want to miss out on Heaven. Christ says to GO OUT and MEET HIM, HE IS THE BRIDEGROOM we are to go OUT and meet the Bridegroom in Matthew 25:6 and it also says this in Revelation 18:4. Must He also say “PLEASE”?

Christ does not expect you not to share truth with people. Christ wore Himself out helping people. Healing the sick etc. So are we to help others. In their necessity He allows you to draw near to them to share His character with them…but pray about who and when you do this and for the WORDS to speak with them.

  • “Many who went forth to meet the Bridegroom under the messages of the first and second angels, refused the third, the last testing message to be given to the world, and a similar position will be taken when the last call is made.” RH October 31, 1899, par. 12 The last warning message to a dying world is to come out of all 501c3 churches, ALL church denominations are also called BUNDLES, Rev 14:4 people follow Christ wherever He goes. Christ calls His Sheep to come out and JOIN Him in the wedding party procession on its way to the gospel feast…the gospel feast at His House, His body, partake of His Godly nature, the Divine Spirit, Divine Words, learn the language of Heaven by studying the King James version Bible promises, claim them as your very own promises sent by God through His Divine Son, Jesus Christ!
    • “The message presented at this time is the last message of mercy for a fallen world.  Those who have the privilege of hearing this message, and persist in refusing to heed the warning, cast away their last hope of salvation.  There will be no second probation.” Testimonies, vol 6, p 19.
    • The trumpet is to give a certain sound.  Clearly and distinctly the warning is to ring out, ‘Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen….Come out of her (church bundles, theological bundles, 501c3 denominational bundles), my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.’” Review and Herald, December 9, 1902 (vol 4, p 472).
    • We know that now everything is at stake.  The third angel’s message is to be at this time regarded as of the highest importance.  It is a life and death question.” Last Day Events from the Letters and Manuscripts of E.G. White, p 76 (Letter 28, February 17, 1900).
    • THE HARVEST MESSAGE THAT SEPARATES THE WHEAT FROM THE TARES IS TO COME OUT OF ALL 501c3 CHURCHES. ALL BAPTIZED PAGANISM/HEATHENISM.

“For evils that we might have checked, we are just as responsible as if we were guilty.” Desire of Ages, p. 44.

Question number 3) Who are the ANGELS and WHEN are they coming to do the separating of the wheat from the tares?

“The ANGEL represented in prophecy as delivering this message, SYMBOLIZES A CLASS OF FAITHFUL MEN, who obedient to the promptings of God’s Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message WAS NOT to be committed to the religious leaders of the people.” E.. White, The Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 4, 199, 200.

An angel said, “Are all messengers? No, no, God’s messengers have A MESSAGE.” The Present Truth,  April 1, 1850, (Vol. 1, #9)

IF what we are missing in our lives IS the CHARACTER of CHRIST what ARE YOU doing to get it? Are you searching Google for it? Are you searching the Bible for it? Are you seeking the Righteousness or CHARACTER of Christ?

Christ says to us in Matthew 11:29 “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart (MIND/attitude/character/thoughts/feelings): and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

We are not one fifth part as meek and humble as we should be. We need to study carefully what these things mean,—that we areto eat the flesh of Christ, and to drink his blood. We must bring Christ into our being. The care and trouble we have, are caused, to a great degree, by our own hearts’ not being in harmony with Jesus Christ. we must take the word of God to ourselves,—and Christ is that word,—and study all his words of advice and counsel, and make them a part of our own life and character. Whatever may have been your defects, you are not to carry those defects along with you from day to day; but you are to set your feet upon the lower round of the ladder, and climb until you reach the topmost round. “The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” You must hold fast to Christ. Christ is that ladder. We are to mount by the Mediator, and all the while keep hold on the Mediator, clinging to Christ, walking with Christ, living with Christ, growing in Christ, until we gain heaven. Christ is the ladder set upon the earth, the topmost round reaching the throne of God.

There are great blessings that we can realize if we will only bring ourselves into harmony with Jesus Christ. It is not that you are to trust in what you can do, but what Christ can do with your efforts; and therefore the whole glory should redound to Jesus Christ, if you would meet with success. And these lessons which appear to you so discouraging, should be regarded by you as the most precious lessons you could have, because you are made through them to see that your whole success depends upon your hold upon God; and if you pray to him in faith, you may know that he will hear your prayers, and will be by your side to help you in every circumstance.”  RH March 29, 1887, par. 8

“Climb the ladder of progress heavenward. Christ is the ladder, whose base is on the earth and whose topmost round reaches to the highest heaven. God is above the ladder, and his glory is shining on every round. You must climb the ladder by clinging to Christ, and finally reach the everlasting kingdom. I pray you in the name of Christ, put on every piece of the armor of God, and fight manfully the battles of the Lord. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” When you are met with sneers and ridicule, rejoice that your names are written in the books of heaven, that you are to be made immortal, to have an abundant entrance into the kingdom of heaven, because you are law-abiding citizens of the heavenly country. You shall see the King in his beauty, and dwell with him, and have a life that runs parallel with the life of Jehovah.” Ellen White, RH September 3, 1895, par. 10

Basically it is IMPOSSIBLE to be like Christ WITHOUT Christ living INSIDE YOU and YOU INSIDE CHRIST. How do you get Christ INSIDE of you? You must become a MUSE a HOST or a CHANNEL or a MEDIUM for CHRIST. Your BODY/MIND becomes a sacred dwelling place of God and His Son’s PRESENCE and POWER=Character/thoughts/feelings when you submit fully to Christ. YOU want to become the personification of knowledge, wisdom, the Art of being like Christ, in everything you think, say and do. To truly channel Christ’s Spirit (His WORDS – found in the Bible verse promises 2 John 1:9 ) you must surrender all your own desires for the desires of Christ to be channeled through you. You keep your own individuality, but will have the Divine touch of Christ on all your ways.

Actually it is like a ROMANCE. You are being wooed or romanced by a King! King Jesus. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords! WHY would you even WANT to resist HIM? IF you don’t resist Him you will be drawn to Him. He knows you intimately. More intimately than a boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife. HE KNOWS YOUR THOUGHTS! HE communicates with you through your MIND.

The more CLEAR your MIND is, the easier it is to HEAR HIS VOICE. So – and this is about the complete surrender of all things to be like Christ – to get Him INSIDE you – so to CLEAR your MIND you must stop EATING things that CLOUD it. Since this IS the information age, and you want ANSWERS quickly. Here it is: GO VEGAN right now. Don’t put another thing in your mouth that does not fit with a VEGAN diet. Go to Pinterest and search for RAW VEGAN RECIPES. You will find there are many MOUTH WATERING RAW RECIPES. REMEMBER THIS: IT IS IMPOSSIBLE to be like CHRIST while indulging appetite. If you want to be like Christ, HOLY and PERFECT, (which simply means that you are in agreement with both God and His Son, Christ who you ARE wanting to fill you with His OWN Spirit (WORDS) that are going to channel to others around you; right?) you must eat like Adam and Eve ate before they sinned. FRUITS, VEGETABLES, NUTS & GRAINS prepared as simply as possible. See http://www.Pinterest.com and search for RAW VEGAN RECIPES. Great instant resource there for you. Another option would be to get thisVibrant Health Maximum Vibrance Digestive Supplement, 24.9 Ounces​ and this: Amazing Black Mica Purifies Water here. THAT covers the food answer to clear your mind so you can channel Christ to others. Go Vegan to clear your mind of the “food drugs” so you can HEAR Christ speaking to your MIND.

Christ’s CHARACTER IS CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS! Christ wants to give you the items you need for beauty treatments be given to you so you can be purified, so your MIND can be PURIFED, cleansed from sin. Christ wants to GIVE you PERFUMES and SPICES to soak in to get you ready to go live in the sight of a Holy God without a mediator. Esther 2:12 “Now when every maid’s turn was come to go in to king Ahasuerus, after that she had been twelve months, according to the manner of the women, (for so were the days of their purifications accomplished, to wit, six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odours, and with other things for the purifying of the women;)” Esther 2:9 She pleased him and won his favor. Immediately he provided her with her beauty treatments and special food (Vegan diet!). He assigned to her seven female attendants (represents 144,000 angels) selected from the king’s palace and moved her and her attendants into the best place in the harem (Zion=YOUR MIND transformed by claiming Bible verse promises the WORD of GOD, “MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT”).”

As you are going through your beauty treatments, Christ is every day walking back and forth near the courtyard of the harem (Zion=your MIND) to find out how you are and to learn what is happening to you.  WAITING, like a Bridegroom anxiously waits for His Bride to get ready. Get’s ready to receive HIS CHARACTER, HIS THOUGHTS, HIS WORDS, HIS FEELINGS! Psalms 100:4 tells us HOW to ENTER INTO CHRIST, INTO THE GATE TO HEAVEN. Through PRAISE. We enter into His COURTS, His MIND THROUGH PRAISE. PRAY IS PRAISE. SINGING IS PRAYING PRAISE… See Psalms 117 and 136!  Psalms 113 to 138.

“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.” Ephesians 5:1-2

AND like the High Priest Aaron mixed up special spices that no one else could make, so God is giving you PERFUMES, SPICES that no one else can make.

Because it is the Song of YOUR EXPERIENCE, of knowing Christ. The PERFUMES and SPECIAL SPICES are the PRAYERS, or PRAISE that ascend to God through Christ’s mind from YOUR MIND. God told Moses to mix some olive oil and spices together to make the special anointing oil. Psalms 117 is a special praise perfume/spice you need to MEMORIZE and repeat…from your soul, you mind. IT needs to come from within you – it is CHRIST in you filling you with JOY, LOVE and PEACE that causes you to WANT to shout thanksgiving to God for Christ dwelling inside you. Praise God for the Gift of Christ. Psalms 113 to 138 are PRAISE PRAYERS that you should study and SAY and SING! PRAISE Him! Bless His Name! THE LORD, THE KING OF KINGS, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Like Queen Esther was GIVEN natural, beautiful, exotic blend of sweet odours that are represented today by our prayer and praise. Thanksgiving and praise to God and His Son for their merciful kindness toward us. See Psalms 117. Ezekiel 39:34 (NRSV) The Lord said to Moses: Take sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum, sweet spices with pure frankincense (an equal part of each), 35 and make an incense blended as by the perfumer, seasoned with salt, pure and holy; 36 and you shall beat some of it into powder, and put part of it before the covenant[g] in the tent of meeting where I shall meet with you; it shall be for you most holy. 37 When you make incense according to this composition, you shall not make it for yourselves; it shall be regarded by you as holy to the Lord. 38 Whoever makes any like it to use as perfume shall be cut off from the people.

The FEAST the 5 wise virgins go out from all 501c3 tax-exempt churches to JOIN is the FEAST of their MIND upon the Holy Scriptures. Find specific Bible promises that relate to your problems and desires and claim them as your very own promise from God Himself sent to you through His Son Jesus Christ. Feasting upon the Lamb of God Jesus Christ will change your character, your thoughts and feelings into His character, the Character or Righteousness of Christ.

The UNHOLY FEAST the 5 foolish virgins are eating and surprised by the unexpected denial into Christ’s MIND/CHARACTER is this:

Those who train the mind to seize upon everything which they can use as a peg to hang a doubt upon, and suggest these thoughts to other minds, will always find occasion to doubt. They will question and criticize everything that arises in the unfolding of truth, criticize the work and position of others, criticize every branch of the work in which they have not themselves a part.They will feed upon the errors and mistakes and faults of others, “until,” said the angel, “the Lord Jesus shall rise up from His mediatorial work in the heavenly sanctuary and shall clothe Himself with the garments of vengeance and surprise them at their unholy feast, and they will find themselves unprepared for the marriage supper of the Lamb.” Their taste has been so perverted that they would be inclined to criticize even the table of the Lord in His kingdom.” Testimonies for the Church Volume 5, p. 689.2
 

“There is many a man in the humble walks of life today whom the Lord might designate as He did Abraham: “The friend of God.” Such men approve that which God approves and condemn that which He condemns. In their presence even the sinner feels a sense of awe, a restraint; for God is with them, and they are living epistles, known and read of all men. There is a softened tenderness, a dignity, a divine propriety, in their deportment, which gives them power (character/influence) over the hearts of their fellow men.”  {4T 615.3} 

   “In the work of reform to be carried forward today, there is need of men who, like Ezra and Nehemiah, will not palliate or excuse sin, nor shrink from vindicating the honor of God. Those upon whom rests the burden of this work will not hold their peace when wrong is done, neither will they cover evil with a cloak of false charity. They will remember that God is no respecter of persons, and that severity to a few may prove mercy to many. They will remember also that in the one who rebukes evil the spirit of Christ should ever be revealed. {PK 675.1}

Hebrews 10:20
by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Rom. 8:1)

Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. (Rom. 5:9)

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (John 5:24)

We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not [his] brother abideth in death. (1 John 3:14)

Psalms:

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. (Psalms 111:10)
Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. (Psalms 119:98)

Proverbs:

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Proverbs 1:7)
My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: (Proverbs 1:8)
For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:6)
The wise shall inherit glory (Proverbs 3:35)
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom (Proverbs 4:7)
My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: (Proverbs 6:20)
Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not (Proverbs 8:33)
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. (Proverbs 9:10)
The wise in heart will receive commandments (Proverbs 10:8)
A wise son heareth his father’s instruction (Proverbs 13:1)
The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. (Proverbs 13:14)
A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil (Proverbs 14:16)
There is Oil in the dwelling of the wise (Proverbs 21:20)
Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son (Proverbs 28:7)
Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father (Proverbs 29:3)

All these verses hold the promise of being wise in your ‘latter end’ (Proverbs 19:20). The ‘latter end’ is that most-waited-for time, that glorious time, when we shall hear the midnight cry, saying, “Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him” (Matt 25:6).

CHRIST – THE WISDOM AND POWER OF GOD

“Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:24

Gaining wisdom (Christ) is the key — the secret to having that precious Oil (character of Christ= the Holy Spirit, My Words are Spirit and they are LIFE) that the five Wise Virgins had. Having the Oil (Power) (character/influence) is merely a by-product, a result of being wise, and of being known by the Bridegroom. As Born-Again Believers, being wise, and avoiding being foolish, is the real issue. It is a New Covenant [Eternal Covenant] issue.

Christ confirms again and again what we have been seeing here. Christ was exhorting His Bride, when He said, “…O fools, and slow of heart to believe ALL that the prophets have spoken” (Luke 24:25). When Christ spoke those words, He spoke them as a warning to His Bride. He revealed that the foolish are ‘slow of heart,’ because they are not “DO-ers” of all the Prophets have spoken.

    Christ has promised the gift of the Holy Spirit (MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT CHRIST TELLS US. BIBLE PROMISES ARE ALIVE WITH HIMSELF, HIS CHARACTER, HIS THOUGHTS, HIS FEELINGS SPOKEN) to His church, and the promise belongs to us as much as to the first disciples.

But like every other promise, it is given on conditions.

There are many who believe and profess to claim the Lord’s promise; they talk about Christ and about the Holy Spirit, yet receive no benefit. They do not surrender the soul to be guided and controlled by the divine agencies.

We cannot use the Holy Spirit. The Spirit is to use US. Through the Spirit God works in His people “to will and to do of His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13. But many will not submit to this. They want to manage themselves. This is WHY they do not receive the heavenly gift. Only to those who wait humbly upon God, who watch for His guidance and grace, is the Spirit given. The power (divine/holy/character/thoughts and feelings/influence=bread of life, Christ’s character) of God awaits their demand and reception.

     This promised blessing, claimed by faith, brings all other blessings in its train. It is given according to the riches of the grace of Christ, and He is ready to supply every soul according to the capacity to receive.

The Ten Virgins Parable Represents the Experience of Seventh-day Adventists

Did you know the parable of the Ten Virgins represents the experience of Seventh-day Adventists from 1840 until Christ returns? The prophet Isaiah, 800 years before Christ was born in Bethlehem saw the end-time saints as a wedding party.  He saw them going forth with lamps shining brightly, even in the midst of thick darkness. Everyone is to hear the last call to the marriage supper of the Lamb. . . . These words are for us!  Isaiah 60:1-5: 1

“Arise, shine; for thy light (living reality experiencing Jesus helping you in your life trials) is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.” Isaiah 60:1. TO THOSE WHO GO OUT TO MEET THE BRIDEGROOM IS THIS MESSAGE GIVEN.”  Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 420.3

Who are the ones to participate in the Loud Cry? “TO THOSE who GO OUT…to MEET the Bridegroom is THIS MESSAGE….GIVEN! Pay attention TEN VIRGIN ADVENTISTS! Don’t be one of the FOOLISH VIRGINS WHO IS DENIED ENTRANCE TO THE WEDDING FEAST! Be one of the 5 wise VIRGINS who GO FORTH to MEET the BRIDEGROOM! Because to the 5 WISE VIRGINS, the BRIDE and GROOM GIVE this last warning message. The HARVEST message. The separating message. The everlasting gospel! The 3rd and 4th angels message! Which are testing perfecting messages…. obey them without DELAY! It is your LAST WARNING MESSAGE before the Sunday Law is put into legislation…and then probation is closed for Adventists, the Ten Virgins…they will wake up TOO LATE like the Ten Virgins woke up too late and were denied entrance to the wedding feast.

“The great issue so near at hand will weed out those whom God has not appointed, and He will have a pure, true, sanctified ministry prepared for the latter rain.” (Manuscript Releases, vol. 12, p.327)

The HARVEST message is HERE, NOW! The Harvest message SEPARATES the TARES from the WHEAT. The WHEAT obey the voice of the Bride and Bridegroom! and GO FORTH to MEET/JOIN the Bridegroom in His HOUSE for the wedding and BANQUET! The Banquet is feasting on the WORD of GOD, the Bread of Life! Claiming the Bible verse promises as your very own prize which according to 2 Peter 1:4 GIVES you “Divine Nature” or GODLY CHARACTER! Remember?

(1900) “Christ is WAITING with LONGING DESIRE for the manifestation of HIMSELF in His church. When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own” (Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 69).

Christ is WAITING for HIS OWN CHRISTLIKE CHARACTER to be IN US, not some other being’s character, that is Satan-like…. Christ wants to GIVE us HIS OWN CHARACTER and is WAITING with LONGING DESIRE, like a Bridegroom waits for His wife! Christ WANTS to consummate the marriage (Baptism into His own NAME, Acts 2:38), Christ consummates the marriage by entering into, giving HIS OWN CHARACTER, His OWN WORDS, His own “Holy”, perfect Spirit to us! 2 Peter 1:4 “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these (Bible verses we claim as our very own prize) ye might be partakers (sharers) of the divine nature (Godly Character=thoughts and feelings, our daily choices), having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (evil desires).”

The SDA church is symbolized in the Ten Virgin parable as the Ten Virgins who fall asleep. Matthew 13:25 “But while everyone was sleeping (Ten Virgins), his enemy came and sowed weeds (tares) among the wheat, and went away.”  Now while the bridegroom delayed, they all slumbered and slept. At the call of the Bride and Bridegroom to come out and JOIN the wedding party procession, 5 wise jump up, trim their lamps and go out to JOIN Christ and His Bride (New Jerusalem/144,000/Elijah) in wilderness (obscure/little known to the Catholics) wedding procession. This call by the Bride/144,000 is to come out of all 501c3 churches (apostasy) this includes the backslidden 501c3 SDA organization “bundle”. All the various 501c3 church denominations are different “bundles”. The tares are being bundled into bundles for burning. Matthew 13:30 “Let both grow together until the harvest (separating of the wheat from the tares): and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers (144,000=leaders), Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles (501c3 churches) to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”. COME TO JESUS JUST AS YOU ARE! CAST YOUR HELPLESS, unworthy SOUL UPON CHRIST. Do NOT try to bear the burdens of others by faultfinding or talking of others sins and faults, because we cannot bear even our own burdens! Cast your burden upon our burden bearer, Jesus Christ right now!

Matthew 11:14 “And if you are willing to accept it, he (Bridegroom=see Matthew 25:6) (144,000 spirit begotten believers) is the Elijah who was to come.” Proverbs 4:13 “Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.” See also John 6:63. John 5:21 “For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.” John 6:68 “Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”

“As children of God, none of us are excused from taking a part in the great work of Christ for the salvation of our fellow men. It will be a difficult work to overcome prejudice, and to convince the unbelieving that our efforts to help them are disinterested. But this should not hinder our labor. There is no precept in the word of God that tells us to do good only to those who appreciate and respond to our efforts, and to benefit only those who will thank us for it. God has sent us to work in his vineyard. It is our duty to do all we can. “In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that.” We have too little faith. We limit the Holy One of Israel. We should be grateful that he condescends to use any of us as his instruments. For every earnest prayer put up in faith, an answer will be returned. It may not come just as we have expected; but it will come at the very time when we most need it. “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”

We should work as did our divine Teacher, sowing the seeds of truth with care, anxiety, and self-denial. We must have the mind of Christ if we would not become weary in well-doing. His was a life of continual sacrifice of others’ good. We must follow his example. We must sow the seed of truth, and trust to God to quicken it to life. The precious seed may lie dormant for some time, but the grace of Christ will convict the heart, and the seed sown be awakened to life, and spring up to bear fruit to the glory of God. Missionaries in this great work are wanted to labor unselfishly, earnestly, and perseveringly, as co-workers with Christ and the heavenly angels, for the salvation of their fellow men.” RH March 23, 1897, par. 8

Acts 5:20
“Go, stand in the temple courts,” he said, “and tell the people all about this new life.”

I beg to differ…we do NOT all worship the same God. Do you worship the God and Father of Jesus Christ the Son of the ONLY living God?
In the 1950’s LeRoy Froom, and Neal Wilson worked HARD to change the God Adventists then worshiped to be one similar to the Catholic gods…

These gods were not officially adopted by the modern 501c3 SDA church until 1980 in a General Conference session. “There is ANOTHER universal and TRULY CATHOLIC ORGANIZATION, the SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH .” Neal Wilson. Adventist Review, 3/5/1981.

Ellen White predicted the Ten Virgin Adventist procession would turn Catholic (sleepy, not studying for themselves) in 1867! The Ten Virgins DIVIDE, the 5 WISE VIRGINS GO OUT of apostasy to meet the Bridegroom in Matthew 25. Matthew 24 and 25 go together….

In fact, in 1867 Ellen White foresaw the SDA church becoming Catholic! (see Testimonies, vol 1, p 578, January 29, 1867):
Prophecy:
“That night I dreamed that I 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. I tried to seek a retired spot where I might weep and pray without meeting eager, inquisitive eyes wherever I turned. I repeated frequently: “If I could only understand this! If they will tell me what I have said or what I have done!” Testimonies for The Church Vol. 1 p. 578, January 29, 1867

The Ten Commandments IS a transcript or copy of Christ’s mind (His Father’s law), His thoughts, His feelings, His CHARACTER IN OUR mind…

Good advice for all ages“It is character alone that God values.” The Ellen G. White 1888 Materials, p. 1445.2

Christ’s Righteousness, means “Christ’s CHARACTER”. Character consists of our thoughts and feelings. If we want to have Christ’s character we must KNOW what His character, His THOUGHTS and His FEELINGS consist of! “I tell you there is need to be alarmed. It is time to seek God earnestly, saying with Jacob, “I will not let thee go except thou bless me.” RH November 2, 1886, par. 2

The message of Christ’s righteousness is to sound from one end of the earth to the other to prepare the way of the Lord. This is the glory of God, which closes the work of the third angel.”  Testimonies for the Church Volume 6, p. 19.1

“Will you not come to God as little children, appropriate His Promises, plead them before Him as His Own Words? If you do, you will receive fulness of joy.” Special Testimonies, March 15, 1910

“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit (Word of God=Christ=Ten Commandments), and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” Galatians 5:16

“Take My yoke upon you,” Jesus says. The yoke is an instrument of service. Cattle are yoked for labor, and the yoke is essential that they may labor effectually. By this illustration Christ teaches us that we are called to service as long as life shall last. We are to take upon us His yoke, that we may be co-workers with Him.

The yoke that binds to service is the law of God. The great law of love revealed in Eden, proclaimed upon Sinai, and in the new covenant written in the heart (MIND), is that which binds the human worker to the will (daily choices) of God. If we were left to follow our own inclinations (carnal desires), to go just where our will (daily choices) would lead us, we should fall into Satan’s ranks and become possessors of his attributes (character=thoughts and feelings). Therefore God confines us to His will (daily choices), which is high, and noble, and elevating. He desires that we shall patiently and wisely take up the duties of service. The yoke of service Christ Himself has borne in humanity. He said, “I delight to do Thy will, O My God: yea, Thy law (Christ) is within My heart (MIND).” Ps. 40:8. “I came down from heaven, not to do Mine own will (daily choices), but the will (daily choices) of Him that sent Me.” John 6:38. Love for God, zeal for His glory (character), and love for fallen humanity, brought Jesus to earth to suffer and to die. This was the controlling power (character=thoughts and feelings) of His life. This principle He bids us adopt.” DA Chapter 34 “The Invitation” – Ellen G. White ® Estate

Hebrews 13:8 states: “Jesus Christ is the same
Are all of the 10 Commandments upheld in the New Testament? To answer this question, consider what Christ taught concerning the commandments and the following chart showing the repetition of the commandments in the New Testament.

What Christ taught concerning the 10 Commandments in the New Testament

Christ consistently upheld the 10 Commandments as given in the Old Testament. In His Sermon on the Mount, He very pointedly stated: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17). And in Acts 24:14 “But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:”

Although some mistakenly think that “fulfill” in this passage means to complete and therefore abolish, what Jesus said afterwards shows this could not be the case. Continuing, Jesus said: “For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven” (verses 18-19).

Realizing that Jesus consistently upheld all of the commandments, including observing the seventh-day Sabbath (Matthew 19:17-19; Luke 4:16), some wrongly suggest that it was the apostle Paul, with Jesus’ personal approval, who introduced grace and the abolishment of the law.

The 10 Commandments given by God in the Old Testament continue to be God’s expectations of Christians today.The truth is that Jesus did not change His mind about the importance of keeping all of the 10 Commandments. As Hebrews 13:8 states: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Christ cannot separate His MIND from His body… His body are the 144,000. The church triumphant. His body (the 144,000) are Christ’s hands and feet for carrying out the thoughts of Christ toward His people, the 10 Commandment are the 10 Thoughts of Christ…Christ is perfect so nothing would need to change. Especially the perpetual, unchanging law of God – only 10 Thoughts of God mind you – only 10 Thoughts! We cannot even get 10 Thoughts right until we surrender our all to Christ to become a host or medium for Christ instead of our carnal nature, born captives of Satan until we are born again of the Spirit (10 Words) of God sent to us through His Seed, the Word of God. Words are as seeds planted in our minds.

Proclaiming Christ from the Ten Commandments

Toward the end of the first century—some 60 years after His death and resurrection—Jesus revealed end-time instructions through John in the book of Revelation. In this book He identifies faithful members of His Church as those “who keep the commandments of God” (Revelation 12:17). Some of the final words of the Bible and this revelation of Jesus Christ likewise state: “Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city” (Revelation 22:14).

The 10 Commandments given by God in the Old Testament continue to be God’s expectations of Christians today.

In his massive Doctrine of the Christian Life, John M. Frame helpfully highlights a number of ways the Decalogue (the Ten Commandments) points us to the Jesus Christ as “the end of the law” (Cf. Rom. 10:4). This is something certainly worth reading meditatively.

***************************

If all Scripture testifies of Christ (Luke 24:27; John 5:39), then the law of God surely cannot be an exception. As we study the law, then, we should examine its witness to Christ. I assume that some readers of this book are preparing for Christian ministry. They especially need to know how to use the Decalogue in their preaching and teaching. But all of us need to learn how to see Christ in the law.

The law bears witness to Christ in a number of ways, some of which I shall discuss in the following points.

1. The Decalogue presents the righteousness of Christ. Jesus perfectly obeyed God’s law. That is why he was the perfect lamb of God, why God imputes his active righteousness to us, and why he is the perfect example for the Christian life. He never put any god before his Father. He never worshiped idols or took God’s name in vain. Despite what the Pharisees said, he never violated the Sabbath command. So the Decalogue tells us what Jesus was like. It shows us his perfect character.

2. The Decalogue shows our need of Christ. God’s law convicts us of sin and drives us to Jesus. It shows us who we are, apart from Christ. We are idolaters, blasphemers, Sabbath breakers, and so on.
3. The Decalogue shows the righteousness of Christ imputed to us. In him we are holy. God sees us in Christ, as law keepers.

4. The Decalogue shows us how God wants us to give thanks for Christ. In the Decalogue, as we shall see below, obedience follows redemption. God tells his people that he has brought them out of Egypt. The law is not something they must keep to merit redemption. God hasredeemed them. Keeping the law is the way they thank God for salvation freely given. So the Heidelberg Confession expounds the law under the category of gratefulness.

5. Christ is the substance of the law. This point is related to the first, but it is not quite the same. Here I wish to say that Jesus is not only a perfect law keeper, according to his humanity, but also the one we honor and worship, according to his deity, when we keep the law.

(a) The first commandment teaches us to worship Jesus as the one and only Lord, Savior, and mediator (Acts 4:12; 1 Tim. 2:5).

(b) In the second commandment, Jesus is the one perfect image of God (Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:3). Our devotion to him precludes worship of any other image.

(c) In the third commandment, Jesus is the name of God, that name to which every knee shall bow (Phil. 2:10–11; cf. Isa. 45:23).

(d) In the fourth commandment, Jesus is our Sabbath rest. In his presence, we cease our daily duties and hear his voice (Luke 10:38–42). He is Lord of the Sabbath as well (Matt. 12:8), who makes the Sabbath his own Lord’s Day (Rev. 1:10).

(e) In the fifth commandment, we honor Jesus, who restores us to the divine family as he submits himself entirely to the will of the Father (John 5:19–24).

(f) In the sixth commandment, we honor him as our life (John 10:10; 14:6; Gal. 2:20; Col. 3:4), the Lord of life (Acts 3:15), the one who gave his life that we might live (Mark 10:45).

(g) In the seventh commandment, we honor him as our bridegroom, who gave himself to cleanse us, to make us his pure, spotless bride (Eph. 5:22–33). We love him as no other.

(h) In the eighth commandment, we honor Jesus as the source of our inheritance (Eph. 1:11), as the one who provides everything that his people need in this world and beyond.

(i) In the ninth commandment, we honor him as God’s truth (John 1:17; 14:6), in whom all the promises of God are Yes and Amen (2 Cor. 1:20).

(j) In the tenth commandment, we honor him as our complete sufficiency (2 Cor. 3:5; 12:9) to meet both our external needs and the renewed desires of our hearts. In him we can be content with what we have, thankful for his present and future gifts.

“Worry is blind, and cannot discern the future; but Jesus sees the end from the beginning. In every difficulty He has His way prepared to bring relief. Our heavenly Father has a thousand ways to provide for us, of which we know nothing. Those who accept the one principle of making the service and honor of God supreme will find perplexities vanish, and a plain path before their feet.” DA Chapter 34 “The Invitation” – Ellen G. White ® Estate

When Christ stands up, and leaves the most holy place, then the time of trouble commences, and the case of every soul is decided, and there will be no atoning blood to cleanse from sin and pollution.

A Sketch of the Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White (1851): “I also saw that many did not realize what they must be in order to live in the sight of the Lord, without a High Priest in the Sanctuary, through the time of trouble.

“Those who receive the seal of the living God, and are protected in the time of trouble, must reflect the image of Jesus fully.” Terrible scenes are just before them,–a time of trouble which will test the value of character.

“See that you refuse not him that speaketh.” Says the true Witness, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.” Every warning, reproof, and entreaty in the word of God, or through his delegated messengers, is a knock at the door of the heart; it is the voice of Jesus, asking for entrance. With every knock unheeded, your determination to open becomes weaker and weaker. If the voice of Jesus is not heeded at once, it becomes confused in the mind with a multitude of other voices, the world’s care and business engross the attention, and conviction dies away. The heart becomes less impressible, and lapses into a perilous unconsciousness of the shortness of time, and of the great eternity beyond. The heavenly Guest is standing at your door, while you are piling up obstructions to bar his entrance. Jesus is knocking through the prosperity he gives you. He loads you with blessings to test your fidelity, that they may flow out from you to others. Will you permit your selfishness to triumph? Will you squander God’s talents, and lose your soul through idolatrous love of the blessings he has given?” Ellen White, RH November 2, 1886, par. 2

There are some whose hold on life is weakening. Disease is preying upon them. Soon will come the time for the separation from all earthly things. Will they venture to trifle with God now? Will they rob him by withholding help from his cause? Are there any who will prefer perishable, earthly treasure to the heavenly, immortal substance? Christ is making his last appeal to hearts. How importunate his entreaty, how reluctant he is to give you up to separation from his love and presence forever!

Christ’s thoughts and feelings are LIKE HIS FATHER’S thoughts. “Let this mind (Ten thoughts and feelings = character = power = influence) be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” Philippians 2:5

2 Corinthians 5:19-20 “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.”

Christ’s Father’s LAW was ALSO a revelation of HIS FATHER’s CHARACTER. His Father’s Thoughts. His Father’s Feelings. His Father’s POWER, His Father’s INFLUENCE, His Father’s Kingdom! When we have Christ, the law IN US, we have Christ’s Father’s Kingdom in US! We have the God of the Universe IN US! We are reconciled BACK to GOD through Christ’s character (Righteousness)! The Ten Commandments written to the fleshy tables of our MIND. God’s mind was in Christ. Christ’s mind is supposed to be in us. Christ character IN US. You cannot separate the law of God from Christ because that would be separating the mind of Christ from His Body. HIS BODY IS YOU! We are to be the hands and feet, the body of Christ. Christ is the head of His church. We are to be thinkers, sayers and doers of what our minds dwell upon. If our mind dwells upon Christ, the law of God, we will reflect what we think about in our words and actions. Jesus gives us His mind by coming to dwell in us by His Spirit. His Spirit is His mind. His Spirit is His WORDS which are ALIVE (John 6:63, Hebrews 4:12, Jeremiah 23:29). He communicates with us through our minds. When we take hold of the reality of this wonderful provision, and practice the presence of Jesus, then we will truly experience the Comforter; we will experience the only power (character) that can resist temptation and overcome sin. We MUST have Christ’s mind IN us!

Christ’s “character” is Christ’s “Righteousness”. Christ IS the law in us. Christ mind is governed by the Law of His Father. Our Spirit begotten mind is governed by Christ’s mind in us. His Thoughts, His Feelings, His Power, His Presence, His Influence in US.

Christ came to reveal His Father’s character to US. To teach us by example what His Father was like in character. In thoughts. In feelings. In character. In Power. In influence. The law reveals how greatly the Father of Christ truly loves us. Christ is the LAW exampled to us. Christ IS the Law. The Law is His Father’s MIND in Christ’s MIND. IF we have Christ’s MIND in us, we reveal the LAW to others by our thoughts, facial expressions, words and actions. NEVER tear down the reputation of a fellow being even if it is true what you are saying. Always lift up Christ and what He has shown you and HOW He has shown you to be Christlike.

You cannot separate the law of God or change the Law of God because Christ is perfect from His beginning. Christ IS the law of God manifested to us. We are to be the Law of God manifested to others. You cannot should not change something that is PERFECT. Christ IS PERFECT. HE IS HOLY. HE IS DIVINE. HE IS GOD’S only Son. CHRIST WAS made to be sin, in order that we might be made the righteousness (character/Law) of God in him.

“As Christ was twice born, once in eternity, the only begotten of the Father, and again here in the flesh, thus uniting the divine with the human in that second birth, so we, who have been born once already in the flesh, are to have the second birth, being born again of the Spirit, in order that our experience may be the same, the human and the divine being joined in a life union.” W.W. PRESCOTT Review and Herald, April 14, 1896 p. 232.
“He was born of the Holy Ghost. In other words, Jesus Christ was born again. He came from heaven, GOD’s first- born, to the earth, and was born again, But all in Christ’s work goes by opposites for us: he, the sinless one, was made to be sin, in order that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. He, the living one, the prince and author of life, died that we might live. He whose goings forth have been from the days of eternity, the first-born of GOD, was born again, in order that we might be born again.” A.T. JONES Review and Herald, Aug. 1, 1899 (Lessons on Faith p. 154.)

“If Jesus Christ had never been born again, could you and I have ever been born again? No. But he was born again, from the world of righteousness (character) into the world of sin (sinful character); that we might be born again, from the world of sin into the world of righteousness (character, thoughts and feelings). He was born again, and was made partaker of the human nature (sinful inclinations), that we might be born again, and so made partakers of the divine nature (Godly inclinations). He was born again, unto earth, unto sin, and unto man, that we might be born again unto heaven, unto righteousness (character/Kingdom), and unto God.” Review and Herald, Aug. 1, 1899 (Lessons on Faith p. 154.)

If we have Christ in us we have the LAW in us. Romans 8:9 “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit (WORDS=what we think, SAY and DO) of Christ, he is none of his.” John 14:17 “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”

You cannot separate the law of God from Christ because that would be separating the mind of Christ from His Body. HIS BODY IS YOU! A Spirit-begotten believer! A hearer and doer of the Ten Commandments through Christ IN YOU. HIS MIND IN YOU. HIS PRESENCE AND POWER IN YOU! Christ filled, Spirit-Word Divine (Godly) character, Divine/Godly thoughts and feelings filled begotten believer! In mind, in purpose, in character, we are one, but not in person. By partaking of the Spirit of God, conforming to the law of God, man becomes a partaker of the divine nature (character=thoughts and feelings like God Himself). Christ brings His disciples into a living union with Himself and with the Father.

Romans 7:5
For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were [revealed] by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. (evil desires – transgression of the Ten Commandments – even breaking one commandment breaks the whole Ten)

Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh (carnal selfish character, carnal selfish thoughts, carnal selfish feelings, carnal selfish power, selfish carnal influence), but after the Spirit (Ten WORDS=TEN COMMANDMENTS=LAW IS CHRIST IN US, HIS Divine WORDS IN US, HIS DIVINE/Godly CHARACTER IN US, HIS Divine THOUGHTS IN US, HIS Divine FEELINGS IN US, HIS Divine PRESENCE IN US, HIS Divine POWER IN US, HIS Divine INFLUENCE IN US). Philippians 2:6 “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:”

OR IN OTHER WORDS, who, existing in the form (image/character) of God, did not consider equality (character) with God as something to be used for His own advantage (selfish desires but rather to help others).

To obtain the Godlike character of Christ. The DIVINE Character of Christ, means the HOLY or PERFECT character of Christ means to have the SPIRIT or CHARACTER or WORDS of CHRIST in our MINDS – the SECRET PLACE of the MOST HIGH, THE MOST HOLY PLACE, THE SACRED DWELLING PLACE OF GOD AND HIS SON’S PRESENCE AND POWER.

Character IS POWER. Claim the precious Bible verses to obtain Divine Character, Divine Thoughts and Divine Feelings, Divine POWER, and Divine INFLUENCE. This IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN YOU. THE KINGDOM OF GOD is at HAND Christ said…Christ’s Divinity or His Godlike character is available for the taking. It is only waiting for your draft upon it.

Claim this verse as God promising this to YOU today and everyday! 1 Thessalonians 3:13 “To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before GOD, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.”

Ask and IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU, PRESSED DOWN AND RUNNING OVER. Claim the character of Christ as your very own just now. Claim the TEN Commandments as YOUR THOUGHTS, YOUR FEELINGS, YOUR CHARACTER, YOUR POWER, YOUR WISDOM, YOUR INFLUENCE….CHRIST IN YOU IS THE LAW OF GOD IN YOU.

Jesus frequently referred to “My Father,” and his hearers got the full impact of his words. We are told, “The Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.” John 5:18

On another occasion he said, “I and My Father are One.” Immediately the religious authorities wanted to stone him. He asked them which of his good works caused them to want to kill him. They replied, “We are not stoning you for any of these but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” John 10:33

Romans 8:11
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

The law of God is a transcript of his character (His Thoughts and Feelings/His Power/His Influence); it portrays the nature of God. As in Christ we behold the brightness of his glory, the express image of his person, so also in the law the attributes of the Father are unfolded. [in the Spirit/WORD begotten believer]” ST December 30, 1889, par. 2

“It is character alone that God values.” The Ellen G. White 1888 Materials, p. 1445.2

Character IS power.” {COL 340.2} defined further in Gal 5:22-23 “love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness (slow to anger), temperance”

What does “Character” consist of exactly?

 “The thoughts and feelings combined make up the moral character.”  Messages to Young People, p. 92.1

“Character is influence.” Ellen White, RH September 29, 1891, par. 14

IT IS CHARACTER ALONE THAT GOD VALUES.

“Character is influence. As mind rules matter, character rules minds, and draws other minds into sympathy, and there is a new impulse, a moral taste created.”—Manuscript 11, 1892, 6, 10. (“Stewards of God’s Gifts,” no date.) Released August 13, 1959.  Manuscript Releases Volume Two [Nos. 97-161], p. 98.3

The Ten Commandments are ALSO a transcript of Christ’s thoughts and feelings, a transcript or copy of Christ’s thoughts and feelings, His Character, His NATURE, His attitude, His personality.

When we invite Christ into our MIND, our thoughts and our feelings become OUR DIVINE (Godly) character, our power, our influence, we receive the mind or character of Christ. Our mind is to be the MOST HOLY PLACE – a SANCTUARY or sacred dwelling place or abode/home for BOTH God and His Son in YOUR MIND, YOUR SOUL, YOUR BODY IS YOUR SOUL TEMPLE. Your soul is your mind. Breath + body = soul.

DIVINE (Godly) means to be HOLY, PERFECT, in constant agreement with God the Father whose thoughts and feelings are the Ten Thoughts or The Ten Commandments (character / power / influence) are channeled / hosted / medium / advocated to us through His Son Jesus Christ.

Rom 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.”

Ephesians 5:26
to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,

Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he [is] God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; Deut. 7:9.

Jer 31:33 “But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel (Spirit-WORD begotten Israel/believers); After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts (what they THINK, SAY AND DO); and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

CLAIM JER 31:33 if you want the mind that was ALSO in CHRIST JESUS IN YOU! CLAIM THESE WORDS AS GOD’S PROMISE TO YOU!  Pray, Heavenly Daddy, I claim Jer 31:33 as your WORDS spoken to me through Your Seed. Your Word Christ is Your seed and His speech (Word/Spirit/character/messages) is dropping like dew and rain upon me from you. I thank and praise you for Christ who faithfully taught us your WORDS, YOUR TEN WORDS, The Ten Commandments, and your loving merciful kindness is great toward me. Your TRUTH (Law/Christ) endureth FOREVER! I PRAISE YOU JUST NOW AND FOREVER! In your Son’s name I ask for your MIND to be given to me. Your thoughts, Your feelings, Your Character, Your Power, Your Influence given to me through Your Seed, Your Son, MY RIGHTEOUSNESS, MY CHARACTER. Amen.

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered:  for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.”  Joel 2:32

Now from the New Testament:

Hbr 8:10 For this [is] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

Hbr 10:16 This [is] the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

Claim Bible promises to get God’s TEN thoughts and feelings/character=power=influence through Christ yourself according to 2 Peter 1:4 “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that BY THESE (claiming these Bible verses as your own WORDS, living these WORD in your daily choices) ye might be partakers of the divine nature (Godly character=thoughts and feelings=influence=power), having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (evil desires).”

The law of love is the foundation of God’s government, and the service of love the only service acceptable to Heaven. God has granted freedom of will to all, endowed men with capacity to appreciate His character, and therefore with ability to love Him and to choose His service. So long as created beings worshiped God they were in harmony throughout the universe. While love to God was supreme, love to others abounded. As there was no transgression of the law, which is the transcript of God’s character, no note of discord jarred the celestial harmonies. {TMK 366.2}

But known unto God are all His works, and from eternal ages the covenant of grace (unmerited favor) existed in the mind of God. It is called the everlasting covenant, for the plan of salvation was not conceived after the fall of man, but it was that which was “kept in  silence through times eternal, but now is manifested, and . . . made known unto all the nations . . .” (Rom. 16:25, 26, R.V.). . . . {TMK 366.3}

Philippians 4:8  Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

If we understand that Christ IS our Righteousness, our truth, (JESUS SAYS “I AM THE TRUTH” John 14:6) and TRUTH is the law of God (Psalm 119:142 “Your law IS truth.”), Jesus says, I AM THE TRUTH, the LAW! If we have Jesus IN us we have the LAW or TEN THOUGHTS, the TEN WORDS of God inside our minds, the Most Holy place, the Sanctuary or sacred dwelling place, the secret place of the MOST HIGH. “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode with him.” John 14:23. WE enter into Christ through thanksgiving and into HIS COURTS with Praise (Psalms 100:4), Christ enters into us when we claim Christ’s victory as ours. Claim His sacrifices (blood/choices) as your own death and resurrection to transform your mind into the mind of Christ = The Ten Commandment or TEN THOUGHTS of GOD sent to us through His Son’s WORDS/SPIRIT/CHARACTER.

When we have Christ dwelling inside our minds, we become a HOST, a channel or a medium for the Law of God through Christ’s Spirit which is His character His WORDS, because His thoughts become His WORDS…My “WORDS ARE SPIRIT (character)” John 6:63… The Bible IS ALIVE and ELECTRIFYING = the WORDS in the BIBLE ARE WORDS OF GOD THE FATHER SENT TO US THROUGH HIS SON TO SPEAK TO US. Deuteronomy 32:2 “Let my teaching fall on you like rain; let my speech (BIBLE VERSE WORDS=SPIRIT =CHARACTER OF CHRIST) settle like dew. Let my words fall like rain on tender grass, like gentle showers on young plants.”

Job 29:22
After I had spoken, they spoke no more; my words fell gently on their ears.

Psalm 65:10
You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops.

Psalm 72:6
May he be like rain falling on a mown field, like showers watering the earth.

Proverbs 4:2
I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching.

Isaiah 55:10
As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,

Isaiah 55:11
so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Micah 5:7
The remnant of Jacob will be in the midst of many peoples like dew from the LORD, like showers on the grass, which do not wait for anyone or depend on man.

Psalm 139:17 “How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” The TEN Commandments are only TEN THOUGHTS or God! How many more thoughts of God do we have to learn throughout eternity! We seem to have such a hard time grasping just TEN of God’s thoughts! Christ is the TEN THOUGHTS of God… God wants us to have those TEN THOUGHTS embedded in our mind, in OUR THOUGHTS through Christ.

Thus shall it be done unto the man (Christ) whom God the King eternal delights to honor! Christ siting in our mind/Throne. Our mind should be a Throne, a saddle, a chariot for Christ and we should be going forth doing His work (believing in Christ) all the while thinking and singing His thanksgiving and praise for His merciful kindness is great toward us and the TRUTH of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY endureth FOREVER! PRAISE YE THE LORD! Psalms 117!

The Ten Commandments are only Ten Thoughts or Ten Ideas of God Himself planted into our mind/thoughts through His Only Seed, His only Son, Jesus Christ:

“Words are as seeds which are planted.Mind, Character, and Personality Volume 2, p. 518.2

What kind of seeds are you planting into the minds around you by YOUR words? Are they HOLY WORDS? Or UNHOLY words? (Unholy WORDS ARE what the 5 FOOLISH virgins talk about or the UNHOLY Feast the 5 FOOLISH VIRGINS feast on: Finding fault and criticizing, tearing down the reputation of other people, EVEN IF IT’s TRUE! Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like) To learn more about what these words mean, look the defination up on Google.com.

What kind of HARVEST are you going to gather? The kind of seeds/words you plant will grow and you will harvest/reap what you plant. Choose ye this day whom ye will serve? Christ’s Thoughts/words? Or Satan’s thoughts/words?

Philippians 2:5 “Let this mind (character=thoughts and feelings=Ten Commandments=truth) be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” (love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance)

Philippians 3:15 “Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded (Christlike in thoughts and feelings=character): and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.”

When we learn the power (character, thoughts and feelings) of God’s Word (Christ), these are the questions we will ask for every situation:

What is God’s Command? And What IS His Promise? Knowing these, we shall obey the one, and trust the other.

Holy Spirit = “The DIVINE SPIRIT that the world’s Redeemer promised to send IS the PRESENCE and POWER (character=Ten Commandments) of God.” ST November 23, 1891, par. 1Ye Shall Receive Power, p. 39.5

Character IS power.” {COL 340.2} defined further in Gal 5:23-24

What does “Character” consist of exactly?

 “The thoughts and feelings combined make up the moral character.”  Messages to Young People, p. 92.1

Merriam-Webster says “Character” is “The mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.” Also known as  our  nature, personality, temper, figure, disposition.

In the parable, all the ten virgins went out to meet the bridegroom. 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 near approach, and confidently expect His appearing. But as in the parable, so it is now. A time of waiting intervenes, 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 their vessels with their lamps. They are destitute of the Holy Spirit.

Without the Spirit of God a knowledge of His word is of no avail. The theory of truth, unaccompanied by the Holy Spirit, cannot quicken the soul or sanctify the heart. One may be familiar with the commands and promises of the Bible; but unless the Spirit of God sets the truth home, the character will not be transformed. Without the enlightenment of the Spirit, men will not be able to distinguish truth from error, and they will fall under the masterful temptations of Satan.

The class represented by the foolish virgins are not hypocrites. They have a regard for the truth, they have advocated the truth, they are attracted to those who believe the truth; but they have not yielded themselves to the Holy Spirit’s working. They have not fallen upon the Rock, Christ Jesus, and permitted their old nature to be broken up. This class are represented also by the stony-ground hearers. They receive the word with readiness, but they fail of assimilating its principles. Its influence is not abiding. The Spirit works upon man’s heart, according to his desire and consent implanting in him a new nature; but the class represented by the foolish virgins have been content with a superficial work. They do not know God. They have not studied His character; they have not held communion with Him; therefore they do not know how to trust, how to look and live. Their service to God degenerates into a form. “They come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as My people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.” Ezekiel 33:31. The apostle Paul points out that this will be the special characteristic of those who live just before Christ’s second coming. He says, “In the last days perilous times shall come: for men shall be lovers of their own selves; … lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

This is the class that in time of peril are found crying, Peace and safety. They lull their hearts into security, and dream not of danger. When startled from their lethargy, they discern their destitution, and entreat others to supply their lack; but in spiritual things no man can make up another’s deficiency. The grace of God has been freely offered to every soul. The message of the gospel has been heralded, “Let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17. But character is not transferable. No man can believe for another. No man can receive the Spirit for another. No man can impart to another the character which is the fruit of the Spirit’s working. “Though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it [the land], as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.” Ezekiel 14:20.

It is in a crisis that character is revealed. When the earnest voice proclaimed at midnight, “Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him,” and the sleeping virgins were roused from their slumbers, it was seen who had made preparation for the event. Both parties were taken unawares; but one was prepared for the emergency, and the other was found without preparation. So now, a sudden and unlooked-for calamity, something that brings the soul face to face with death, will show whether there is any real faith in the promises of God. It will show whether the soul is sustained by grace. The great final test comes at the close of human probation, when it will be too late for the soul’s need to be supplied.

The ten virgins are watching in the evening of this earth’s history. All claim to be Christians. All have a call, a name, a lamp, and all profess to be doing God’s service. All apparently wait for Christ’s appearing. But five are unready. Five will be found surprised, dismayed, outside the banquet hall.

At the final day, many will claim admission to Christ’s kingdom, saying, “We have eaten and drunk in Thy presence, and Thou hast taught in our streets.” “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?” But the answer is, “I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from Me.” Luke 13:26; Matthew 7:22; Luke 13:27. In this life they have not entered into fellowship with Christ; therefore they know not the language of heaven, they are strangers to its joy. “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.” 1 Corinthians 2:11.

Saddest of all words that ever fell on mortal ear are those words of doom, “I know you not.” The fellowship of the Spirit, which you have slighted, could alone make you one with the joyous throng at the marriage feast. In that scene you cannot participate. Its light would fall on blinded eyes, its melody upon deaf ears. Its love and joy could awake no chord of gladness in the world-benumbed heart. You are shut out from heaven by your own unfitness for its companionship.

We cannot be ready to meet the Lord by waking when the cry is heard, “Behold, the Bridegroom!” and then gathering up our empty lamps to have them replenished. We cannot keep Christ apart from our lives here, and yet be fitted for His companionship in heaven.

In the parable the wise virgins had oil in their vessels with their lamps. Their light burned with undimmed flame through the night of watching. It helped to swell the illumination for the bridegroom’s honor. Shining out in the darkness, it helped to illuminate the way to the home of the bridegroom, to the marriage feast.

So the followers of Christ are to shed light into the darkness of the world. Through the Holy Spirit, God’s word is a light as it becomes a transforming power in the life of the receiver. By implanting in their hearts the principles of His word, the Holy Spirit develops in men the attributes of God. The light of His glory—His character—is to shine forth in His followers. Thus they are to glorify God, to lighten the path to the Bridegroom’s home, to the city of God, to the marriage supper of the Lamb.

The coming of the bridegroom was at midnight—the darkest hour. So the coming of Christ will take place in the darkest period of this earth’s history. The days of Noah and Lot pictured the condition of the world just before the coming of the Son of man. The Scriptures pointing forward to this time declare that Satan will work with all power and “with all deceivableness of unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9, 10. His working is plainly revealed by the rapidly increasing darkness, the multitudinous errors, heresies, and delusions of these last days. Not only is Satan leading the world captive, but his deceptions are leavening the professed churches of our Lord Jesus Christ. The great apostasy will develop into darkness deep as midnight, impenetrable as sackcloth of hair. To God’s people it will be a night of trial, a night of weeping, a night of persecution for the truth’s sake. But out of that night of darkness God’s light will shine.

He causes “the light to shine out of darkness.” 2 Corinthians 4:6. When “the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep,” “the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.” Genesis 1:2, 3. So in the night of spiritual darkness, God’s word goes forth, “Let there be light.” To His people He says, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.” Isaiah 60:1.

“Behold,” says the Scripture, “the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people; but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee.” Isaiah 60:2.

It is the darkness of misapprehension of God that is enshrouding the world. Men are losing their knowledge of His character. It has been misunderstood and misinterpreted. At this time a message from God is to be proclaimed, a message illuminating in its influence and saving in its power. His character is to be made known. Into the darkness of the world is to be shed the light of His glory, the light of His goodness, mercy, and truth.

This is the work outlined by the prophet Isaiah in the words, “O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.” Isaiah 40:9, 10.

Those who wait for the Bridegroom’s coming are to say to the people, “Behold your God.” The last rays of merciful light, the last message of mercy to be given to the world, is a revelation of His character of love. The children of God are to manifest His glory. In their own life and character they are to reveal what the grace of God has done for them.

The light of the Sun of Righteousness is to shine forth in good works—in words of truth and deeds of holiness.

Christ, the outshining of the Father’s glory, came to the world as its light. He came to represent God to men, and of Him it is written that He was anointed “with the Holy Ghost and with power,” and “went about doing good.” Acts 10:38. In the synagogue at Nazareth He said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18, 19. This was the work He commissioned His disciples to do. “Ye are the light of the world,” He said. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14, 16.

This is the work which the prophet Isaiah describes when he says, “Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily; and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rereward.” Isaiah 58:7, 8.

Thus in the night of spiritual darkness God’s glory is to shine forth through His church in lifting up the bowed down and comforting those that mourn.

All around us are heard the wails of a world’s sorrow. On every hand are the needy and distressed. It is ours to aid in relieving and softening life’s hardships and misery.

Practical work will have far more effect than mere sermonizing. We are to give food to the hungry, clothing to the naked, and shelter to the homeless. And we are called to do more than this. The wants of the soul, only the love of Christ can satisfy. If Christ is abiding in us, our hearts will be full of divine sympathy. The sealed fountains of earnest, Christlike love will be unsealed.

God calls not only for our gifts for the needy, but for our cheerful countenance, our hopeful words, our kindly handclasp. When Christ healed the sick, He laid His hands upon them. So should we come in close touch with those whom we seek to benefit.

There are many from whom hope has departed. Bring back the sunshine to them. Many have lost their courage. Speak to them words of cheer. Pray for them. There are those who need the bread of life. Read to them from the word of God. Upon many is a soul sickness which no earthly balm can reach nor physician heal. Pray for these souls, bring them to Jesus. Tell them that there is a balm in Gilead and a Physician there.

Light is a blessing, a universal blessing, pouring forth its treasures on a world unthankful, unholy, demoralized. So it is with the light of the Sun of Righteousness. The whole earth, wrapped as it is in the darkness of sin, and sorrow, and pain, is to be lighted with the knowledge of God’s love. From no sect, rank, or class of people is the light shining from heaven’s throne to be excluded.

The message of hope and mercy is to be carried to the ends of the earth. Whosoever will, may reach forth and take hold of God’s strength and make peace with Him, and he shall make peace. No longer are the heathen to be wrapped in midnight darkness. The gloom is to disappear before the bright beams of the Sun of Righteousness. The power of hell has been overcome.

But no man can impart that which he himself has not received. In the work of God, humanity can originate nothing. No man can by his own effort make himself a light bearer for God. It was the golden oil emptied by the heavenly messengers into the golden tubes, to be conducted from the golden bowl into the lamps of the sanctuary, that produced a continuous bright and shining light. It is the love of God continually transferred to man that enables him to impart light. Into the hearts of all who are united to God by faith the golden oil of love flows freely, to shine out again in good works, in real, heartfelt service for God.

In the great and measureless gift of the Holy Spirit are contained all of heaven’s resources. It is not because of any restriction on the part of God that the riches of His grace do not flow earthward to men. If all were willing to receive, all would become filled with His Spirit.

 

Did you get that? “What is the shame of this nakedness and poverty? “…of separating ourselves from God!” If we as a “professed” Adventist have rashly denied the BRIGHT light set up behind us {our historical SDA foundational doctrines} by rejecting the one and only true God, “professed” Adventists today are shamefully naked! Without God and His power! “Why is there so dim a perception of the true spiritual condition of the church?  Has not blindness fallen upon the watchmen standing on the walls of Zion?…Who can truthfully say, ‘Our gold is tried in the fire; our garments are unspotted by the world’?  I saw our Instructor pointing to the garments of so-called righteousness.  Stripping them off, He laid bare the defilement beneath.  Then He {Christ} said to me: ‘Can you not see how they have pretentiously covered up their defilement and rottenness of character?  ‘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, vol 8, p 248-250, April 21, 1903}

“Behold the Bridegroom cometh. Jesus turned from them with a frown. They had slighted and rejected him. Those who received the message were wrapped in a cloud of glory. They waited and watched and prayed to know the will of God. They greatly feared to offend him. I saw Satan and his angels seeking to shut this divine light from the people of God; but as long as the waiting ones cherished the light, and kept their eyes raised from earth to Jesus, Satan could have no power to deprive them of this precious light. The message given from heaven enraged Satan and his angels, and those who professed to love Jesus, but despised his coming, scorned and derided the faithful, trusting ones. But an angel marked every insult, every slight, every abuse they received from their professed brethren. Very many raised their voices to cry, Behold the Bridegroom cometh, and left their brethren who did not love the appearing of Jesus, and who would not suffer them to dwell upon his second coming. I saw Jesus turn his face from those who rejected and despised his coming, and then he bade angels lead his people out from among the unclean, lest they should be defiledThose obedient to the messages stood out free and united. A holy and excellent light shone upon them. They renounced the world, tore their affections from it, and sacrificed their earthly interests. They gave up their earthly treasure, and their anxious gaze was directed to heaven, expecting to see their loved Deliverer. A sacred, holy joy beamed upon their countenances, and told of the peace and joy which reigned within. Jesus bade his angels go and strengthen them, for the hour of their trial drew onI saw that these waiting ones were not yet tried as they must beThey were not free from errors. And I saw the mercy and goodness of God in sending a warning to the people of earth, and REPEATED MESSAGES to bring them up to a point of time, to lead them to a diligent search of themselves, that they might divest themselves of errors which have been handed down from the heathen and papists. Through these messages God has been BRINGING OUT his people where he can work for them in greater power, and where they can keep ALL His commandments.” —{Spiritual Gifts, Volume 1, Page 157}

“Pentecost brought them the heavenly illumination. The truths they could not understand while Christ was with them were now unfolded. With a faith and assurance that 
they had never before known, they accepted the teachings of the Sacred Word. No longer was it a matter of FAITH with them that Christ was the Son of God. They knew that, although clothed with humanity, He was indeed the Messiah, and they told their experience to the world with a confidence which carried with it the conviction that God was with them.

They could speak the name of Jesus with assurance; for was He not their Friend and Elder Brother? Brought into close communion with Christ, they sat with Him in heavenly places. With what burning language they clothed their ideas as they bore witness for Him! Their hearts were surcharged with a benevolence so full, so deep, so far-reaching, that it impelled them to go to the ends of the earth, testifying to the power of Christ. They were filled with an intense longing to carry forward the work He had begun. They realized the greatness of their debt to heaven and the responsibility of their work. Strengthened by the endowment of the Holy Spirit, they went forth filled with zeal to extend the triumphs of the cross. The Spirit animated them and spoke through them. The peace of Christ shone from their faces. They had consecrated their lives to Him for service, and their very features bore evidence to the surrender they had made.” The Acts of the Apostles, p. 45.3

“You recognize these facts in Bible history as true, but apply them to the future. They have their force still in their proper place, in the chain of events that have made us as a people what we are today, and as such, they are to be presented to those who are in the darkness of error. The true workers of Jesus Christ are to cooperate with their brethren who have had an experience in the work from the very rise of the third angel’s message

(1844 era repeated in the last days –

“The eye salve is the true spiritual discernment that is so wanting among us, for spiritual things must be spiritually discerned.”
—{The Review and Herald, April 1, 1890}.

Warning for those who think or say these words: “God is blessing me, so I must be doing all right. I have all, or most of the truth I need. I keep the Sabbath every week and help people.” Don’t think for a second that you are safe until you are standing in the City of God. If you think that you are pretty safe, you need to study more than anyone else. Talents are the material things and abilities God gives you, to work for Him. Don’t take it for granted it’s because you are righteous: Isaiah 45:5 “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:” Psalm 18:32 “It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.” It is character alone that God values. In the greatness of their ignorance, in the poverty of their spirit, they feel that they have attained unto the measure of the full stature of men and women in Christ, when they are mere babes in understanding.

Says Christ, By renouncing your own self-sufficiency, giving up all things, however dear to you, you may buy the gold, the raiment, and the eyesalve that you may see.

(Even if what you say is TRUE, NEVER tear down the reputation of a fellow being. EVER.) Claim this verse as your own ticket to become perfect, holy, never to say wrong words: Luke 21:15 “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.”

“Make it a rule never to utter one word of doubt or discouragement.” Steps to Christ, p. 119.3 (1892).
“Do not find fault and criticize.”  RH November 10, 1910, par. 12
“Those who train the mind to seize upon everything which they can use as a peg to hang a doubt upon, and suggest these thoughts to other minds, will always find occasion to doubt. They will question and criticize everything that arises in the unfolding of truth, criticize the work and position of others, criticize every branch of the work in which they have not themselves a part.They will feed upon the errors and mistakes and faults of others, “until,” said the angel, “the Lord Jesus shall rise up from His mediatorial work in the heavenly sanctuary and shall clothe Himself with the garments of vengeance and surprise them at their UNHOLY FEAST (the 5 foolish virgins), and they will find themselves unprepared for the marriage supper of the Lamb.” Their taste has been so perverted that they would be inclined to criticize even the table of the Lord in His kingdom.” Testimonies for the Church Volume 5, p. 689.2
“The Lord would have His people sound in the faith—not ignorant of the great salvation so abundantly provided for them. They are NOT to look forward, thinking that at some future time a great work is to be done for them; for the work is now complete. The believer is NOT called upon to make his peace with God; he never has nor ever can do this. He is to accept Christ as his peace, for with Christ is God and peace. Christ made an end of sin, bearing its heavy curse in His own body on the tree, and He hath taken away the curse from all those who believe in Him as a personal Saviour. He makes an end of the controlling power of sin in the heart, and the life and character of the believer testify to the genuine character of the grace of Christ. To those that ask Him, Jesus imparts the Holy Spirit; for it is necessary that every believer should be delivered from pollution, as well as from the curse and condemnation of the law. Through the work of the Holy Spirit (God THROUGH His Son’s Spirit’s WORDS=POWER/CHARACTER/PRESENCE = they will make their abode in us John 14:23), the sanctification of the truth, the believer becomes fitted for the courts of heaven; for Christ works within us, and His righteousness is upon us. Without this no soul will be entitled to heaven. We would not enjoy heaven unless qualified for its holy atmosphere by the influence of the Spirit and the righteousness of Christ.” Selected Messages Book 1, p. 394.3
Your Character becomes like Christ’s CHARACTER by claiming the precious BIBLE VERSE PROMISES AS YOUR VERY OWN WORDS. START LEARNING AND SPEAKING THE LANGUAGE OF HEAVEN NOW. SPEAK LIKE JESUS. USE HIS WORDS AS YOUR WORDS. THIS IS WHAT CHRIST DID. HE USED HIS FATHER’S WORDS TO TEACH US! YES! HE DID! John 14:10  “The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me.”
John 12:49 “For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken.”
John 5:19 “Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.”

John 14:20 “On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.”

John 14:24 “Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.”

If you want Christ’s character it means TRUTH. Christ is the TRUTH. God’s law is TRUTH.  “Stand therefore, having your loins gird about with Truth (the Verity of God’s Word is CHRIST! His MIND, His PRESENCE AND POWER=TRUTH/LAW/CHARACTER/RIGHTEOUSNESS IN US!) . . . !” Ephesians 6:14

“Christian character is not achieved in an instant, but day after day we are to add to our faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge, and to knowledge temperance, and to temperance patience, and to patience brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness charity. It is in this way that we are to be made ready for the coming of Christ.” RH April 21, 1891, par. 7

You get the mind of Jesus inside of you by reading the Bible, praying for discernment, memorizing Bible verses, praying and meditating upon Bible verse and SOP promises. Claiming the pledged Word of God as your very own promises!

So…CHRIST, the only Divine Son of the Only living God consists of:  Christ IS the embodiment/manifestation/channel/medium of His Father’s law (truth). Christ’s MIND is the law which is TRUTH. Christ is righteousness (truth), and Christ is the truth, today and for ever. Psalm 119:142

Psalm 119:160 “Thy word (Christ) is true from the beginning (origin of the seed of God, Christ): and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.”

Psalm 19:7 “The law (Christ) of the LORD (God the Father) is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes (Christ’s character) of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.”

When we learn the power (character, thoughts and feelings) of God’s Word (Christ), these are the questions we will ask for every situation:

What is God’s Command? And What IS His Promise? Knowing these, we shall obey the one, and trust the other.

Example: 
Command: 1 Peter 1:15-17 KJV “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”

Promise: Because in James 3:2 it says if we can only say words that are holy we are a PERFECT man…. PERFECT mind you! This is HIS PROMISE to us! “For in many things we offend all. If any man offend NOT in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.”

Then you can claim this promise: Luke 21:15 (KJV) “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom (Jesus 1 Corinthians 1:24), which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” Also Jude 1:24 says Christ is more than able to present us FAULTLESS before His Father!!!

What ARE we waiting for folks? 2 Peter 1:4 promises to give us the Divine Nature or GODLY CHARACTER if we just claim the exceeding great and precious promises of God written in the Bible verses as our own GIFT from God Himself. Let’s learn the language of Heaven! 2 Pt 1:4: “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (evil desires).”

Pray something like “Our Heavenly Daddy, in the name of Christ, our Righteous Character, we claim Luke 21:15 as our very own promise and we know you keep you word. We claim Jude 1:24 and Psalms 91 and Isaiah 41:9-13 over our family, friends and enemies today. We claim Christ’s victory as ours today that we overcome just as He overcame sin. We ask in the name of our husband, our Bridegroom, our Saviour, Jesus Christ the only Son of the only living God. We thank and praise you for your merciful goodness to us. We thank you and bless your holy name forever. Long live the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

DECLARE THE POWER OF GOD’S WORD (CHRIST) OVER YOUR LIFE STARTING THIS SECOND! Let this MIND that was ALSO in  Christ Jesus BE IN YOU! WHEN CHRIST DWELLS IN YOUR MIND, YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOUR FEELINGS, YOU HAVE THE TEN COMMANDMENT LAW OF HIS FATHER WRITTEN TO THE FLESHY TABLES OF YOUR MIND! THE VERY THOUGHTS OF GOD HIMSELF BECOME YOUR THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS THROUGH HIS SON, OUR ONLY DOOR OR GATE TO BE RECONCILED BACK TO THE ONLY WISE ETERNAL IMMORTAL, EXTREMELY KIND AND LOVING MERCIFUL GOD AND FATHER OF CHRIST.

YOU STILL RETAIN YOUR INDIVIDUAL PERSONALITY, BUT YOUR THOUGHTS, WORDS AND ACTIONS ARE GOVERNED BY CHRIST IN YOU, THE LAW OF GOD IN YOU BECAUSE CHRIST IS THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH IS THE CHARACTER OF GOD HIMSELF AND THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE HIS THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS EXPRESSED TO US THROUGH HIS SON’S MIND WHICH IS REALLY BOTH THE FATHER’S CHOICES WHICH ARE ALSO HIS SON’S CHOICES, WHICH WHEN THEY DWELL/LIVE IN US, THEY CONSTRAIN US FROM SIN, FROM HAVING SIN IN US.

JESUS HAS GOD HIS FATHER’S (1 COR 8:6) MIND TEMPERING HIS OWN CHOICES/WILL WITH HIS FATHER’S COMMANDS (MENTS) AND IF WE LOVE CHRIST IN US, OUR DESIRES, OUR INCLINATIONS TO DO ANYTHING CONTRARY TO THE TEN COMMANDMENTS WILL SEEM AN ABOMINATION AGAINST OUR HEAVENLY DADDY AND HIS SON, OUR BRIDEGROOM, OUR BENEFACTOR, OUR CHARACTER/SPIRIT/WORDS TO CHANNEL TO OTHERS.

THE LOVE OF GOD IS CHRIST IN US – IT IS REALLY THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN US – AND BY THEIR SPIRIT (WORDS/MIND) THEY TEMPER OUR DESIRES TO BE LIKE THEIR DESIRES, HOLY, PERFECT WHICH SIMPLY MEANS TO BE IN CONSTANT AGREEMENT WITH GOD.

Psalm 68:24 NIV “Your procession, God, has come into view (October 22, 1844), the procession of my God and King into the sanctuary.”

Psalm 77:13 KJV “Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary (October 22, 1844): who is so great a God as our God?”

A true ROYAL Bride thinks, speaks and acts like her Bridegroom, Christ. The Bride is FILLED with Christ’s character (the Ten THOUGHTS or TEN COMMANDMENTS) of the God and Father of Christ. The Bridegroom is a chip of the ‘ole block. A rock cut out of the mountain without hands. A Spirit (WORD FILLED =Ten Thoughts of GOD become HIS TEN WORDS, SPIRIT FILLED TEN WORDS, MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT- and they ARE LIFE) Spirit-begotten believer. God speaks His Words to us through Christ THE WORD OF GOD. WHEN WE INVITE THE WORD OF GOD INTO OUR LIVES BY INTENSE TRIMMING OF OUR LAMPS our minds, trimming our bad habits or manmade traditions out of our lives, by INTENSELY STUDYING and doing/obeying THE WORD OF GOD, THE BIBLE and claiming it’s great and precious promises, its Bible Verses….by the faith OF Christ, this is HOW we get the Ten Commandments written to our mind, our thoughts, our feelings…by beholding we become changed, by intense study of God’s WORD we become changed into God’s Ten Words or into His ROYAL Ten Thoughts, which become our own thoughts, our own feelings, our own desires, our own character our own HABITS, which becomes our destiny.

The Ten Virgin wedding party PROCESSION started out with all 10 virgins awake. Since 1844, 170 years have lapsed during this tarrying time. The Spirit and the Bride say “COME”! Christ and His Bride (144,000 leaders/similar to Levites/Aaron’s rod that budded=especially chosen) are CALLING (Matt 25:6/Rev 18:4) to the guests, the 5 wise virgins who wake up and GO OUT/COME OUT = Christ and His Bride are calling from OUTSIDE (Rev 14:4) of all 501 (c) (3) (non-profit/tax exempt) churches and JOIN Christ’s wedding party PROCESSION that has been going on since October 22, 1844 when Christ moved into the Most Holy Place which is also known as the Bridal Chambers – Christ and His Bride consummate their spiritual union – Christ’s Bride receives His character, THE OIL represents the CHARACTER CHRIST imparts to His wife when she submits to Him completely.

The CHILDREN of the Bridal Chamber, are SONS and DAUGHTERS of this spiritual union of Christ with His Bride (Zion=144,000) who are the 5 wise virgins who COME OUT of all churches and follow Christ ALONE at the CALL of the Bride and Bridegroom found in Matthew 25:6 “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; GO YE OUT to meet him.” What are we to go out of and JOIN? The protection of Christ and His angels! Claim Christ’s blood sacrifice as a covering from the coming 7 last plagues. Lay all your burdens at Christ’s feet. Surrender yourself and all you have to Christ right now. Pray, “Take me oh Lord, as wholly Thine, I lay all my plans at Thy feet. Use me today in Thy service, abide with me and let all my work be wrought in Thee.” Steps to Christ, p. 70.1

“Bless ye God in the congregations.” Let the assembled company magnify the God whose ark they followed and became like in character through UNITED PRAISE is like the mingled perfume which Aaron made, it Should all be presented unto God. He blesses us; let him be blessed. “Even the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.” A parallel passage to that in Deborah’s song: “They that are delivered from the noise of archers in the places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of the Lord.” The seat of the ark Would be the fountain of refreshing for all the tribes, and there they were to celebrate his praises. “Drink,” says the old inscription, “drink, weary traveller; drink and pray.” We may alter one word, and read it, drink and praise. If the Lord overflows with grace (Character=Holy thoughts and feelings=constant agreement with God means Perfect=Holy), we should overflow with gratitude. Ezekiel saw an ever-growing stream flow from under the altar, and issue out from under the threshold of the sanctuary, and wherever it flowed it gave life: let as many as have quaffed this life-giving stream glorify “the fountain of (Spiritual) Israel.”

The True Meaning of the Ark of the Covenant – the 144,000 are to become a chariot-throne – moving Thrones or moving chariots of fire (fire represents zealous efforts in becoming in constant agreement with God getting heathen (baptized paganism) forms of worship out of our minds and actions= a disobedient life to a foul odor and an obedient life to a pleasant aroma to God). We are to be like the servants who carry around their Kings on poles, their throne on poles carried by the 144,000. The poles of the Ark of the Covenant represent our nose or the nose of God smelling the sweet incense of our prayers and songs of thanksgiving and praise to God and His Son continually for their merciful kindness and goodness toward us, and His truth endureth forever (Psalms 117). Thus shall it be done unto the man whom the King delights to Honor (Christ riding His throne, His chariot = our moving bodies/temples, our minds)  a disobedient life to a foul odor and an obedient life to a pleasant aroma 2 Corinthians 2:15 NLT “Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing.”

Like the apostles the 144,000 are identified with their work (living and sharing the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th angels messages with special focus on the 7th day Saturday as Sabbath); they were as the incense, crushed and burned, but diffusing everywhere a waft of perfume. Perfume = thanksgiving and praise to God…an obedient life is a pleasant aroma to God. Bible verses about the Ark of the Covenant: http://www.openbible.info/topics/ark_of_the_covenant

In them that are saved, and in them that perish; rather, among those who are perishing and those who are being saved (comp. Acts 2:47). The odour is fragrant to God, though those who breathe it may be variously affected by it.

Triumph in Christ
14But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. 15For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing;16to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things?…

Numbers 15:3
and you present to the LORD food offerings from the herd or the flock, as an aroma pleasing to the LORD–whether burnt offerings or sacrifices, for special vows or freewill offerings or festival offerings–

We are to offer the SACRIFICES of the calves of our lips, our continual thanksgiving and praise to God through His Son!

2 Samuel 6:1-23 ESV / David again gathered all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand. And David arose and went with all the people who were with him from Baale-judah to bring up from there the ark of God, which is called by the name of the Lord of hosts who sits enthroned on the cherubim. And they carried the ark of God on a new cart and brought it out of the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill. And Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, were driving the When Love Trumps Angernew cart, with the ark of God, and Ahio went before the ark. And David and all the house of Israel were making merry before the Lord, with songs and lyres and harps and tambourines and castanets and cymbals.

Uzzah represents modern 501c3 Adventists who reach out and try to STEADY the NEW CART with the ARK OF THE LORD. 501c3 Adventist’s think the 144,000 are getting off course, by coming OUT of the 501c3 militant churches to be joined to Christ, the church triumphant, so they try to REACH out their HANDS to steady the Ark of the Covenant, our mobile temples and like Uzzah they are struck dead. The ARK of the Covenant had a tarrying time after this happened…like the Ten Virgin Parable had a tarrying time….then they wake up and the 5 wise virgins jump to their feet, trim their lamps which means intense study of God’s Word and SOP as never before known and JOIN the 144,000 mobile temples/bodies in thanking and praising God for His wonderful deliverance from apostasy in the 501c3 Seventh-day Adventist modern churches that worship the trinity of gods. “And David and all the house of Israel were making merry before the Lord, with songs and lyres and harps and tambourines and castanets and cymbals.” 2 Samuel 6:1-23.

The apostles are identified with their work; they were as the incense, crushed and burned, but diffusing everywhere a waft of perfume.

Romans 1:21
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Genesis 8:21 “The LORD smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.”

Ezekiel 20:41
I will accept you as fragrant incense when I bring you out from the nations and gather you from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will be proved holy through you in the sight of the nations.

2 Corinthians 4:3
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.

Ephesians 5:2
and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Philippians 4:18
I have received full payment and have more than enough. I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.

Moreover, this also tells you the Lord does not desire to merely live among men and women, as he did at Sinai, but within our minds, through his spirit (Christ=WORDS=Ten Commandments living in our thoughts, Words and actions=character=destiny); and in this manner each us becomes a human mobile temple (like the Tabernacle) for him. The mind is the throne seat of the human body, and on that throne seat should be the Lord (instead of the (Satan’s character=his words, his thoughts his actions) Sinful Inclination), ruling over his willing and thinking intelligent subjects, whom he created in the first place. In this way, each becomes a chariot or palanquin for the Lord

Palanquin definition:

  1. (in India and the East) a covered litter for one passenger, consisting of a large box carried on two horizontal poles by four or six bearers.
    Exodus 37:1-9 ESV / “Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood. Two cubits and a half was its length, a cubit and a half its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height. And he overlaid it with pure gold inside and outside, and made a molding of gold around it. And he cast for it four rings of gold for its four feet, two rings on its one side and two rings on its other side. And he made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold (144,000 overlaid with pure gold, the robe of Righteousness, the character of Christ) and put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark to carry the ark.”

    2 Chronicles 35:3 ESV / And he said to the Levites (similar to the 144,000) who taught all Israel and who were holy to the Lord, “Put the holy ark in the house that Solomon the son of David, king of Israel, built. You need not carry it on your shoulders. Now serve the Lord your God and his people Israel.

    Revelation 12:1-2 ESV / And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars (12×12,000=144,000). She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. (the new birth pains and agony of giving birth represents the telling and showing Adventists that they need to come out of 501c3 modern SDA churches = those who COME out of Adventism are the Sons and Daughters (AKA “guests” and “5 wise virgins” of the wedding feast = feeding studying the Bible intensely as never before known) of the Bride (144,000) and Bridegroom’s spiritual union in the Bridal chambers, the Most Holy place = OUR MIND, the mobile temple (throne/chariot) of the Most High God and His Son mind = Then Ten Commandments/Manna (special vegan diet and feeding on the Word of God, Bible promises) and Aaron’s budded rod= The PRESENCE AND POWER (character) of God Himself through His Son)

    THE GUESTS ARE NOT THE BRIDE of Christ, the 144,000, Zion, the church triumphant:
    the people of God are said to be GUESTS at the marriage supper.” The Great Controversy 1888, p. 426.2.
    “If guests, they cannot be represented also as the bride.” The Great Controversy 1888, p. 426.2Christ in His Sanctuary, p. 104.2
    The GUESTS are also known as the Sons and Daughters of God. Also known as the 5 wise virgins who come out and join the Bridegroom and Brides procession into the wedding feast. Sons & Daughters of the Bridal chamber/minds connected to Christ. Spiritual children of the Bridegroom and Bride, the 144,000, faithful men and women represented as angels giving the Loud Cry, the Mother, New Jerusalem, the church triumphant, Zion…The TEMPLE of the living God…our bodies/minds are the sacred dwelling place of the Most High! 

THIS MEANS WE LIKE THE ARK OF THE COVENANT ARE A HOST, A ELECTROMAGNETIC HUMAN BOX, OUR CELLS ARE ELECTRIFIED BY THE WORDS OF CHRIST WHICH THE WORDS OF CHRIST ARE ALIVE AND ELECTRIFYING, MEMORIZE THEM, SAY THEM, SING THEM, PRAY THEM OVER YOUR LIFE AND YOUR ENEMIES LIVES AND LIVE OUT THE SANCTIFYING/CLEANSING, HAPPINESS GIVING TEN COMMANDMENTS IN YOUR DAILY CHOICES.

THE LOST ARK OF THE COVENANT IS FOUND IN YOUR MIND CONNECTED TO CHRIST WHICH IS THE TEN COMMANDMENTS INSIDE OF YOU, THE LAW WRITTEN TO YOUR MIND THROUGH CHRIST:

The Ark of the Covenant has always supposed to be symbolic of the human brain. The brain is not just a physical feature. Not only does it act as a receiver and transceiver of God’s consciousness, but the brain houses some very special glands that serve as gateways between the physical and spiritual worlds.

The ARK of the covenant BRAIN – THE TWO LOBES OF YOUR BRAIN BECOMES THE TWO THRONES OF GOD AND HIS SON. We are to STRIVE to be one of the moving chariots of God, the 144,000…become the mercy seat, the saddle, the Throne of God is a Spirit begotten believer…moving temples, moving dwelling place of God is our minds… God is up with the mobile times! God wants His CHURCH to be MOBILE CHURCHES, your body, your temple, was created to be the sacred dwelling place, the most Holy place, the chambers of your mind is to be the dwelling place of the MOST HIGH GOD and HIS SON! They dwell in our minds by their Spirit, their Words, their Character, their Thoughts, their Feelings which is outlined in the ROYAL PERPETUAL TEN COMMANDMENTS! Do you want to THINK like a ROYAL KING? INVITE CHRIST to come in and sup with you! Study the Bible and SOP with an intensity before unknown! Claim the Bible PROMISES as your very own prize! Claim Christ’s VICTORY as your very own victory over sin! Claim Jeremiah 33:3 as your own promise everyday and I promise you your life will be revolutionized!
http://www.templesecrets.info/ark/ark2.html

In Exodus 25:22 the Lord says he will speak to Moses from between the cherubim, but “above” the Ark’s lid; and in Leviticus 16:2: the Lord says he will appear in a cloud above (or upon or over) the Ark’s lid. Also in I Samuel 4:4 and II Samuel 6:2 the Lord is enthroned above or upon the cherubim; and in II Kings 19:15 Hezekiah prays to the God of Israel enthroned above the cherubim. And finally, in Psalms 99:1 and Isaiah 37:14 -16, the Lord “sits enthroned upon the cherubim” (in heaven – or over the earthly Ark). However one must not be imagine him sitting upon the small Ark. Rather, it was his voice sounding from between the cherubim that stood for his person, (Exodus:25:22). More info here to study and pray about: http://www.templesecrets.info/ark/ark2.html

Jeremiah 3:16 “In those days, when your numbers have increased greatly in the land,” declares the LORD, “people will no longer say, ‘The ark of the covenant of the LORD.’ It will never enter their minds or be remembered; it will not be missed, nor will another one be made.”

THE CHOICES OF YOUR MIND OR TEMPLE WHICH BECOMES THE SACRED DWELLING PLACE, LIKE THE LOST ARK OF THE COVENANT WAS THE DWELLING PLACE, OR HOME FOR THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. OUR MINDS BECOME THE DWELLING PLACE FOR THE MIND OR IDEAS OF GOD -is God Himself, FOR THE LAW OF GOD, HIS CHARACTER, LIKE THE ARK OF THE COVENANT. OUR MIND BECOMES THE MERCY SEAT FOR GOD AND HIS SON’S PRESENCE AND POWER (CHARACTER) WHEN WE PRACTICE/OBEY LIVE THE 10 LAWS in our LIVES, our daily little choices, OUR WILL. Jesus gives us His mind by coming to dwell in us by His Spirit. His Spirit is His mind. He communicates with us through our minds. When we take hold of the reality of this wonderful provision, and practice the presence of Jesus, then we will truly experience the Comforter; we will experience the only power (character) that can resist temptation and overcome sin. We MUST have Christ’s mind IN us!

these components of the Exodus narrative describe something that happens in your head on the way to your own Promised Land.

The true Ark of the Covenant rests atop your shoulders. More specifically, the Ark represents your brain. Even as Jesus was crucified at Golgotha (the place of the skull), representing part of the ascension process that takes place in your head, so too does the Ark. And in order to truly commune with God, that communion must take place within the confines of your mind. As we’ll soon see, communing with God means talking with TWO separate beings. God and His Son. Communicating with God through His Son means learning what God’s ideas are for us. The Ten Commandments are a TRANSCRIPT of the MIND of God Himself. He gave us the WORDS of HIS MIND through Christ after Adam and Eve sinned.

It has much more to do with becoming ONE with God, being RECONCILED BACK to the MIND of God through the WORDS God gave His Son to tell us, which are the plans of God for us through intense study of the precious Bible and SOP promises which are much bigger than your ideas! Claim the Bible verses as your very own WORDS…sent to you from God through His Son which are to become a living reality to you in your mind, thoughts words and actions! Which becomes your character, your destiny!

As Jesus said stated:

“that all of them may be one , Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us…” (John 17:21).

“Jesus prayed that his disciples might be one as he was one with his Father. This prayer did not contemplate one disciple with twelve heads, but twelve disciples, made one in object and effort in the cause of their master. Neither are the Father and the Son parts of the “three-one God.” They are two distinct beings, yet one in the design and accomplishment of redemption. The redeemed, from the first who shares in the great redemption, to the last, all ascribe the honor, and glory, and praise, of their salvation, to both God and the Lamb.” (James White, 1868, Life Incidents, page 343) 

Ellen White writes: “The unity that exists between Christ and His disciples does not destroy the personality of either. In mind, in purpose, in character, they are one, but not in person. By partaking of the Spirit of God,conforming to the law of God, man becomes a partaker of the divine nature (character=thoughts and feelings like God Himself). Christ brings His disciples into a living union with Himself and with the Father.(Ellen White warns, “The Father and the Son ALONE are to be exalted.” {The Youth’s Instructor, July 7, 1898 par.2}) Through the working of the Holy Spirit upon the human mind, man is made complete in Christ Jesus. Unity with Christ establishes a bond of unity with one another. This unity is the most convincing proof to the world of the majesty and virtue of Christ, and of His power (Character=thoughts and feelings=even the “inclination” to sin) to take away sin.” {Our Father Cares, p. 36.3}

Now let’s break down the image of the Ark. Two Cherubim’s faced each other on top of the lid. But what’s significant here is that the wings of the Cherubim are spread over the ark, covering and protecting what lies beneath. There is one on the left and one on the right. Now consider that your brain is made up of a left and right hemisphere. The covering of your brain is the cerebrum. So just as the Cherubim covered something significant inside the ark (the brain) so too does the left and right cerebrum cover some very important glands that serve as a link between our physical and spiritual natures. One such component is the pineal gland, also known as the third eye.

This is what Jesus referenced when he stated:

“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light” (Matt. 6:22).

As if the above information wasn’t enough, I am now going to give you plain scriptural information that will confirm that the ark is symbolic of the human brain. Consider that the stone tablets making up the Ten Commandments were placed inside the Ark of the Covenant. Now remember that the ark symbolizes the mind and brain.

The Ten Commandments are universal in nature. When one becomes enlightened (Spirit begotten believers in Christ, the reality of knowing Christ), the Ten Commandments are realized and lived out from within. This is especially true after the awakening of the third eye, or pineal gland. Now consider the scripture below from Jeremiah:

“This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law [my ONLY Son] in their minds (Throne of God and His Son=144,000) and write in on their hearts (mind=what we think, say and do)” (Jeremiah 31:31)

The prophet Jeremiah is declaring that the law is meant to be in the mind and heart permanently, not something which should be obeyed from an external law book or outward code. This is about something that happens “within” you. Let’s also read the very next verse:

“No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ because they will all know me…” (Jeremiah 31:34).

Someone who has experienced enlightenment no longer serves the ego. The law was written for the ego, but the spiritual man who is not under the operation of the ego lives by grace (enlightenment / Christ consciousness.) Christ IN THEM, The Ten Commandment law written to their mind, through Christ’s WORDS, which were God’s IDEAS that become WORDS to us through His Son. Christ is the WORD OF GOD living in us…the Ten Commandments LIVING inside our minds, inside the TRUE Ark of the Covenant! Our MIND! A mind transplant, create in me oh God a clean MIND. Renew a RIGHT SPIRIT within me….. 🙂

This is the entire reason the Ten Commandments were placed inside the Ark of the Covenant; it was to serve as a symbolic image of what was to truly be experienced by a true Israelite (spiritually enlightened person) a Spirit begotten believer. Someone who claims the faith OF Christ as his or her very own. Someone who claims the VICTORY of Christ as their own.

Let me take you back to the image of the Cherubim for a moment. Have you ever wondered why God placed Cherubim to the entrance of the Garden of Eden to protect it? Adam and Eve represent different aspects of consciousness, then you understand that the Garden of Eden is a symbol or representative of what our mind needs to be like. It’s a state of the mind. Since the cerebrum serves as a covering for the spiritual glands located underneath their covering, then it makes sense that God would place Cherubim to guard the entrance to Eden. In order for us to get back to Eden, we have to be awakened! We should also note that the Cherubim held a flaming sword (Bible WORDS in our MIND lived in our lives through our daily choices). This fiery sword represents the logos, or the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD’S IDEAS and PRESENCE sent to us through HIS ONLY  that is responsible for awakening the third eye!

Do we find any imagery similar to this when talking about the Ark of the Covenant? Yes, we do! Consider the description given in the Bible when Moses talks to God above the mercy seat on the Ark of the Covenant:

“And there shall I meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim (cerebrum of the brain) which are upon the ark of the testimony…” (Exodus 25:22).

Third Eye AwakeningNow remember that the scripture says God is light. When God communes with us and the pineal gland is opened, it is said that a bright white light is often seen by the participant. Didn’t Paul see the exact same thing, Christ as a bright white light, as he was knocked off his horse on the road to Damascus (Acts 9:3)?

As we continue with how God speaks to Moses from between the mercy seat in Numbers, we read:

“And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him (the LORD), he heard a voice of one speaking to him from off the mercy seat…And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying…when thou lightest the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light over against the candlestick (Numbers 7:89-8:2).

It should be obvious that the seven lamps represent the seven Spirits of GOD that must flow through in order to experience enlightenment.

How does this knowledge help us?

As you read more the scripture, continue to look at how each character and symbol represents us. The Ark of the Covenant has always supposed to be symbolic of the human brain. The brain is not just a physical feature. Not only does it act as a receiver and transceiver of God’s consciousness, but the brain houses some very special glands that serve as gateways between the physical and spiritual worlds. ALL IS MIND, it is truly through the mind that we gain higher awareness and operate on a higher plane of consciousness.

Think about what the literal Ten Commandments were truly needed for. They are needed for the man who is controlled by the ego. The ego needs to be kept in check, and thus the commandments serve that function until Christ (Christ consciousness the Ten Commandments – the IDEAS, THOUGHTS and FEELINGS OF GOD becomes YOURS through CHrist!

It’s the hidden spiritual meanings IN BIBLE VERSE PROMISES within them that matter! Never stop digging and questioning.

Mainstream Christianity has misunderstood all of this imagery for centuries. One cannot worship God in spirit and in truth by worshiping something “out there.” All truth is to be contained within you = God Himself and His Son’s PRESENCE and Character (power) within you. Mainstream Christianity has taught us that by “believing” the literal Gospel this entire spiritual process is assured to us by GOD through His Son, Jesus Christ. But what they fail to realize is that Christ is to be formed in you!

DECLARE THE BIBLE PROMISES OVER YOUR LIFE FOR YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND ENEMIES! THIS IS WHAT JESUS DID! HE MET THE TEMPTER SATAN WITH A “THUS SAITH THE LORD” AND A “IT IS WRITTEN”! SO MUST WE IF WE WANT TO BE OVERCOMERS AND PARTAKE OF THE CHARACTER OF GOD THROUGH CHRIST. LET THIS MIND BE IN YOUR THAT WAS ALSO IN CHRIST JESUS.

BECOME A CHANNEL TO OTHERS TO CHANNEL THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN THOUGHTS, WORDS AND ACTIONS TO OTHERS. CHRIST WANTS US TO BE HIS BODY, HIS HANDS AND FEET. WE CLAIM HIS MIND AS OURS, HE EMBODIES THE TEN COMMANDMENTS TO US, OR RATHER CHANNELS THE TEN COMMANDMENT IDEAS TO US WHICH IS REALLY GOD’S IDEAS LIVED OUT BY HIS SON TO SHOW US HOW TO BE LIKE HIS FATHER AND GOD!

WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?!! ASK CHRIST INTO YOUR MIND. ASK HIM FOR A MIND TRANSPLANT! YOU WILL STILL RETAIN YOUR IDENTITY, YOUR PERSONALITY; YOU WILL JUST BE TEMPERED BY THE ROYAL PERPETUAL, HOLY AND PERFECT LAW OF GOD’S GOVERNMENT FOR THE UNIVERSE. YOU WILL BECOME LIKE GOD HIMSELF, IN CHARACTER. GOD’S IDEAS BECOME YOUR OWN IDEAS THROUGH CHRIST! CHRIST IS OUR GATE TO HEAVEN, THE DOOR WAY BACK TO GOD’S MIND.

THERE IS POWER IN LOVING, MERCIFUL, KIND CHARACTER. YOU WILL NEVER REGRET BEING TOO KIND, OR TOO FORGIVING, OR TOO MERCIFUL. FOR GOD IS MERCIFUL AND KIND TO US THROUGH CHRIST AND THE TRUTH (LAW=CHRIST) BECAUSE CHRIST IS THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH IS THE PERFECT LAW, WHICH IS CHRIST THE LAW OF TRUTH (GOD’S IDEAS) IN US!!!! WOW. GOD’S IDEAS BECOME OUR IDEAS! OUR IDEAS ARE GOVERNED BY GOD’S IDEAS. GOD’S IDEAS MAKE US HAPPY FOR ETERNITY WHEN GOD’S IDEAS OR HIS TEN COMMANDMENT LAW IDEAS BECOME OUR CONSTRAINING TEN COMMANDMENT IDEAS.

THIS IS CHRIST IN US, CHRIST’S IDEAS IN US. GOD GAVE CHRIST HIS OWN IDEAS AND WE GIVE OTHERS CHRIST’S IDEAS, BECAUSE CHRIST IS OUR TEACHER OF GOD’S IDEAS. GOD’S IDEAS ARE HOLY, WHICH MEANS PERFECT, WHICH MEANS LOVE, JOY AND PEACE BECAUSE CHRIST IN US IS GREAT TRUTH (LAW) IN US. WE WERE MADE TO BE A TEMPLE FOR GOD AND HIS SON. WE ARE TO BE THE SACRED DWELLING PLACE, THE MIND (IDEAS) OF GOD IN US THROUGH CHRIST. WHEN GOD’S IDEAS BECOME OUR IDEAS THROUGH CHRIST, WE THEN SHARE GOD’S IDEAS (HIS 10 LAW IDEAS) WHICH ARE MADE KNOWN TO US THROUGH CHRIST’S EXAMPLE TO US. WE ARE TO CHRIST AS A WORD THAT EXPRESSES CHRIST’S THOUGHTS, HIS CHARACTER, HIS MIND, HIS FEELINGS, – we are to be to Christ as a BODY that expresses HIS THOUGHTS, HIS FEELINGS THROUGH OUR HANDS AND FEET, OUR ACTIONS TO OTHERS…

“Who is Christ?—He is the only begotten Son of the living God. He is to the Father as a word that expresses the thought,—as a THOUGHT made audible. Christ is the WORD of God. Christ said to Philip, “He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father.” His words were the echo of God’s words. Christ was the likeness of God, the brightness of His glory, the express image of His person.” The Youth’s Instructor, June 28, 1894. Sons and Daughters of God, p. 21.2

we are the BODY of CHRIST, HIS HANDS AND FEET TO OTHERS, HE IS OUR MIND WE ARE HIS BODY. THE HEAD OF HIS SACRED DWELLING PLACE, HIS TEMPLE, OUR BODIES. WE SPEAK WITH ONE MOUTH, FILLED WITH THANKSGIVING AND PRAISE…this is HOW we enter into CHRIST’S BODY…we become mediums or hosts for thanksgiving and praise channeled to God through His Son. God’s thoughts or ideas (Ten Commandments) are channeled by example through Christ to us, we are to channel Christ’s SPIRIT WHICH ARE HIS WORDS, HIS CHARACTER, HIS THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS, HIS IDEAS to others. CHRIST in TURN CHANNELS our thanksgiving and praise back to His GOD AND FATHER of the universe. GOD’S THOUGHTS ARE ROYAL HOLY THOUGHTS, THOUGHTS OF MERCY AND KINDNESS TOWARD US CONTINUALLY. NOTHING EVIL WILL BE ABLE TO STAND IN THE SIGHT OF A HOLY, PERFECT LOVING GOD. SIN IS THE CHARACTER OF SATAN – HIS THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS MANIFEST THROUGH US THROUGH OUR THOUGHTS, WORDS AND ACTIONS.

“At that day you shall know (realize) that I am in my Father, and you IN me, and I in you.” John 14:20
Hosea 14:2 “Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.” THANKSGIVING AND PRAISE TO GOD AND HIS SON. THIS IS HOW WE ENTER INTO CHRIST ACCORDING TO PSALMS 100:4. WE ENTER INTO GOD THROUGH HIS GATE. HIS GATE OR DOOR IS CHRIST. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO BE RECONCILED BACK TO THE MIND OF GOD, WHICH IS HIS CHARACTER. IF WE WOULD HAVE THE CHARACTER OF CHRIST WE MUST INVITE HIM INTO OUR SOUL TEMPLE AND CLAIM THE BIBLE PROMISES, DECLARE THE WORD OF GOD, HIS PROMISES, THE BIBLE VERSE PROMISES OVER OUR LIVES, OUR FAMILY, OUR FRIENDS AND ENEMIES. THE BIBLE IS ALIVE, FILLED WITH SPIRIT, FILLED WITH THE CHARACTER OF GOD, THE WORDS THAT ARE SPIRIT FILLED WORDS ARE GOD”S WORDS -CHRIST =THE WORD OF GOD = THE TRUTH = THE LAW = WRITTEN, MEMORIZED, THOUGHT ABOUT, MEDITATED ON DAY AND NIGHT. IT BECOMES A SACRED JOY, THAT FILLS US WITH HAPPINESS WHICH IS CHRIST IN US, HIS PRESENCE AND POWER WHICH POWER IS CHARACTER. CHARACTER IS INFLUENCE. TH E KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LOVE, JOY AND PEACE – HAPPINESS FOREVER AFTER. CHRIST IS OUR PRINCE THAT COMES TO RESCUE US FROM THE EVIL CARNAL CHARACTER WE MORTALS HAVE BY DEFAULT AFTER SIN ENTERED INTO THE MIND OF MAN THROUGH EVE AND ADAM. CHRIST IS OUR SECOND ADAM, THE MIND OR IDEAS OF GOD GIVEN BACK TO US. OUR MIND IS RESTORED TO THE TRUTH – THE TEN COMMANDMENTS THROUGH CHRIST’S WORDS, BY CLAIMING THE BIBLE PROMISES, LIKE JUDE 1:24 AND TONS OF OTHERS, JAMES 3:2. JER 33;3.
“for what we sacrifice to the Lord our God is untouchable to the Egyptians”
For what we sacrifice (thanksgiving and praise to the only God and His only Son) are untouchable to the heathens who worship the false gods…trinity and many other strange gods
To summarize the present predicament: instead of plainly telling Pharaoh that the Israelites were leaving Egypt for good, Moses spoke of their undertaking a mere three-day journey into the wilderness in order to make festive
offerings and worship God. Correlates with telling Adventists that they need to come out of modern 501c3 Adventism and obey the historical doctrines of Seventh-day Adventist pioneers who were true blue. The enemy has stolen a march upon Adventists and has sown tares among them. Now the 144,000 are calling to the 5 wise virgins to wake up and study instensly before it is forever too late. To come out and JOIN Christ in the wedding party procession to the feast of the Lamb, the Word of God = study intensely, and help to give the last 3rd and 4th angels message to the world… At the Sunday law it will be too late for 501c3 Adventists to come out and go into the wedding feast…the door will be shut, and Christ will say, depart from me for I know you not…the unexpected denial… For many years already the SDA church has been promoting SUNDAY WORSHIP! Yes… Here’s the proof: https://sites.google.com/site/theendtimewarning/sundayworshipsda
“Then I was shown a company who were howling in agony. On their garments was written in large characters, “Thou art weighed in the balance, and found wanting.” I asked who this company were. The angel said, “These are they who have once kept the Sabbath and have given it up.” I heard them cry with a loud voice, “We have believed in Thy coming, and taught it with energy.” And while they were speaking, their eyes would fall upon their garments and see the writing, and then they would wail aloud. I saw they had drunk of the deep waters, and fouled the residue with their feet — trodden the Sabbath underfoot — and that was why they were weighed in the balance and found wanting.” (Early Writings, p. 37).
 
A new 501c3 organization has been established. Books of a new order have been written.  A system of intellectual philosophy has been introduced by changing the one and only God our pioneers worshiped to the trinity of gods or Tritheism. Tritheism is the teaching that the Godhead is really three separate beings forming three separate gods called Tritheism. Tritheism is the teaching that the Godhead is really three separate beings forming three separate gods.
But Moses replied, ‘It
would not be right to do this, for what we sacrifice to the Lord our
God is untouchable to the Egyptians. If we sacrifice that which is
untouchable to the Egyptians before their very eyes, will they not
stone us! So we must go a distance of three days into the wilderness
and sacrifice to the Lord our God as he may command us.’
Pharaoh said, ‘I will let you go to sacrifice to the Lord your God
in the wilderness, but do not go very far. Plead then for me [that
God should end the plague – BDL]’ (Ex. 8:21-24).
1 Samuel 15:22 “And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.”
When we learn the power of God’s Word *the scriptures TESTIFY of ME (the Son of GOD) 

Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
John 5:39

*, these are the questions we will ask for every situation:

What is God’s Command? And What IS His Promise?

Knowing these, we shall obey the one, and trust the other. Learn more about the power of God’s Word here.

The Royal Ten perpetual law of God written with God’s own finger is written upon our minds by the finger of God, Christ dwelling in us. Everything about the Ark of the Covenant is to be embodied in us. The 

Manna, the Law of God, Aaron’s budded rod that bore leaves and fruit in one night, budded, leafed and bore fruit in one night is significant. The blood on the mercy seat, is the blood on the doorposts of our minds, Christ’s righteousness covering us, His truth/law filling us with perfection, Holiness which only means we are in constant agreement with God and His 10 perpetual laws, the precepts/transcript of the mind of God. This is how we have the mind of Christ dwelling in us. The Manna is the bread of life that we are to feed upon, read and claim specific Bible verses and claim them as the Word, tremble at the Word of God IN US, because Christ has become a living reality to us. The Shekinah glory that covered the Ark of the Covenant, is the PRESENCE of God Himself covering us with His own Righteousness, His own truth sent to us through His own precious only begotten Divine Son of God to live in our body, in our mind, to be expressed to others in love and compassion.

 Whenever the law is presented before the people, let the teacher of the truth point to the throne arched with the rainbow of promise, the righteousness of Christ. The glory of the law is Christ; he came to magnify the law, and to make it honorable. Make it appear distinct that mercy and peace have met together in Christ, and righteousness and truth have embraced each other. When you look to his throne, offering up your penitence, praise, and thanksgiving that you may perfect Christian character, and represent Christ to the world, you abide in Christ, and Christ abides in you; you have the peace that passes all understanding. We need continually to meditate upon Christ’s attractive loveliness. We must direct minds to Jesus, fasten them upon him. In every discourse dwell upon the divine attributes. RH December 13, 1892, par. 6

Think of your head as the Ark of the Covenant on your shoulders. The Levites carried the Ark of the Covenant around on their shoulders. EVERYTHING about the Ark of the Covenant is to be exemplified or exampled in YOUR Body and life. Your body is the electromagnetic box made without hands, like the Ark of the Covenant box was the dwelling place of God. We as individuals are but a pattern of electrical, biological, chemical, physical and other forces; we are but dust of the ground. When you consider the fact that your body is bioelectric,

For starters, your body uses electrons to communicate, and inside every cell are mitochondria, the “power plants” of the cell, and these mitochondria can be adversely impacted by electromagnetic fields, resulting in cellular dysfunction… Our cells are made up of 99.9% water….see this amazing video: http://www.waterliberty.com/presentation-dd.php These minerals are available on Amazon….but info is well worth the time to watch it if you want to get rid of heavy metals and all kinds of disease.

Isaiah 1:16-17 “Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.”

According to 2 Peter 1:4 you get divine nature or Godly Character by claiming these precious Bible promises as your very own Words! By reading the Bible, asking God to UNLOCK your mind so you can understand what you read, God’s thoughts become your thoughts, God’s WORD becomes your Word, God’s Word (Christ) becomes your ACTIONS. God’s actions through Christ becomes YOUR CHARACTER. God’s ACTIONS through Christ becomes your ACTIONS. God’s destiny through Christ becomes our DESTINY! Eternal LIFE!

“The prince of this world cometh,” said Jesus, “and hath nothing in Me.” John 14:30. There was in Him nothing that responded to Satan’s sophistry. He did not consent to sin. Not even by a thought did He yield to temptation. So it may be with us. Christ’s humanity was united with divinity; He was fitted for the conflict by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. And He came to make us partakers of the divine nature. So long as we are united to Him by faith, sin has no more dominion over us. God reaches for the hand of faith in us to direct it to lay fast hold upon the divinity of Christ, that we may attain to perfection of character.

And how this is accomplished, Christ has shown us. By what means did He overcome in the conflict with Satan? By the word of God. Only by the word could He resist temptation. “It is written,” He said. And unto us are given “exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:4. Every promise in God’s word is ours. “By every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” are we to live. When assailed by temptation, look not to circumstances or to the weakness of self, but to the power of the word. All its strength is yours. “Thy word,” says the psalmist, “have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” “By the word of Thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.” Ps. 119:11; 17:4. {The Desire of the Ages Page 123-124}

Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15).

 

YOUR THOUGHTS, BECOME FEELINGS, YOUR FEELINGS BECOME WORDS, YOUR WORDS BECOME ACTIONS, YOUR ACTIONS BECOME CHARACTER, YOUR CHARACTER BECOMES YOUR DESTINY. ALL BY WHAT WE THINK AND DO BECOMES WHERE WE SPEND ETERNITY. ETERNAL LIFE OR ETERNAL DEATH.

The Bible says if we can control what we say we will be a PERFECT MAN OR WOMAN able to keep our WHOLE BODY in check. James 3:2 “For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.” So to control what we SAY, we must submit to Christ as a wife submits to her husband. We claim CHRIST’s Words as our very own. And claim this promise as ours found in Luke 21:15 “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom (Jesus 1 Cor 1:24), which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” Claim this as yours and believe it is so. Every time you are tempted to say something unkind to or about someone, EVEN IF IT IS TRUE, say, Jesus save me from myself! Claim Luke 21:15. Also claim Jer 33:3 everyday and you will be amazed at what great and mighty things you will learn EVERY time you claim that promise as yours!

What you study, you start to talk like. You start to think, talk and act like Jesus by willingly submitting your daily choices to come into harmony with the Bible teachings. Then your character is formed into a copy of Jesus character who is a copy of God’s character. You then will receive the destiny of Jesus as well…. persecution for a short while…then Christ will come to take you to Heaven and give you the finishing touch of immortality.

John 12:49 “For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.”

Did you know that Christ thundered down His Father’s Law from Mt. Sinai?

His Father’s Law

“Amid the awful glory of Sinai, Christ declared in the hearing of all the people the ten precepts of HIS FATHER’S LAW.” E.G. White, Patriarchs and Prophets, P. 366.

“In union with the Father, Christ proclaimed the law amid the thunders of Sinai…” E.G. White, The Signs of the Times, 11-12-94, pr. 07.

1 Cor 10:1-4 says it was Jesus.

1 Corinthians 10:1-4 (KJV)

10 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;

And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

John 7:16 “Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me.”

If we have Christ IN us we have the MIND of His Father IN US. “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” Philippians 2:5

The Ten Commandments ARE a transcript of the thoughts and feelings of God, which is the CHARACTER of God Himself, the Father and God of Christ our Righteousness! WE receive the CHARACTER or rather the THOUGHTS and FEELINGS, OF THE ONLY GOD THE FATHER, THROUGH CHRIST HIS ONLY SON.

We receive the law of God, the Ten Commandments through Christ. We receive the THOUGHTS and FEELINGS of God Himself through Christ=His Law, His Ten Commandment Law! WE become God-like in Character! In our thoughts and our feelings. We then share what we have been GIVEN! We cannot share something we don’t have…we must accept Christ’s mind, His thoughts, His feelings as our very own, we claim them as our own prize. We boldly step into the mind of Christ (the Most Holy Place of God Himself, the Bridal Chamber/Feast) by the FAITH OF CHRIST. We must have Christ’s abiding PRESENCE and POWER in us. His POWER is His CHARACTER, the CHARACTER or WORDS of His Father in Christ becomes OUR CHARACTER or POWER which is the thoughts and feelings of God Himself sent through His Son into our minds. We become a HOST a channel, a medium for the Ten Commandments!

  • Jesus said, I am THE TRUTH. John 14:6
  • “thy law is the truth” Psalm 119:142so, if Jesus IS the TRUTH, if we have the TRUTH in US, we have the Law or Ten Commandments IN US, we have Jesus IN us, HIS MIND in us… it is THROUGH the strength of Christ, His mind, His PRESENCE and POWER (character)
  • Holy Spirit = “The DIVINE SPIRIT that the world’s Redeemer promised to send IS the PRESENCE and POWER (character) OF God.” ST November 23, 1891, par. 1, Ye Shall Receive Power, p. 39.5″Character IS power.” {COL 340.2} defined further in Gal 5:23-24.

    What does “Character” consist of exactly?”The thoughts and feelings combined make up the moral character.” Messages to Young People, p. 92.1Merriam-Webster says “Character” is “The mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.” Also known as our nature, personality, temper, figure, disposition.R. & H., Book 2, p. 530: – “Compassion beamed from his [that is, Christ – compiler] countenance, and his conduct was characterized by grace, humility, truth, and love. Every member of his church militant must manifest the same qualities, if he would join the church triumphant.” {RH, November 17, 1891 par. 12}”Those who think that the church militant is the church triumphant make a GREAT mistake.” E.G. White, The Upward Look, 152.

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” Philippians 2:5

“Christian character is not achieved in an instant, but day after day we are to add to our faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge, and to knowledge temperance, and to temperance patience, and to patience brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness charity. It is in this way that we are to be made ready for the coming of Christ.” RH April 21, 1891, par. 7

So if we let the MIND that was IN Christ Jesus be IN us, we will have the MIND of God Himself in US that IS a transcript of the TEN COMMANDMENTS…God’s thoughts and feelings reflect His character, which is His Spirit…His MIND, His WORDS reflect His THOUGHTS. His WORDS become actions His Words become our character, our DESTINY. We receive the DESTINY of Christ by receiving His mind in us. We enter into Christ through THANKSGIVING and PRAISE! See Psalms 100:4.

When we have the mind of Christ in us, we have the mind of Christ’s Father also in US…they BOTH come to make their home IN US to dwell in our minds. We are to be sacred living temples/churches reflecting the power (character) of God and His Son to others. We can only have this by accepting Christ’s invitation to sup with Him. To read the Bible, study and pray. To claim Christ’s victory as our very own (DA123 = “His VICTORY is OURS”!!!) We enter into Christ, the gate to Heaven through THANKSGIVING and we enter into the Most Holy place, the Bridal chamber, and the FEAST the Ten Virgins were headed to, but only 5 wise virgins wake up and trim their lamps (study and pray for themselves with an intensity before unknown) through PRAISE! See Psalms 100:4. CLAIM Zechariah 3:4 as your very own – and John 6:37! Plead for PURITY of MIND.

Luke 15:22
“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger (authority) and sandals (gospel of Christ 2 Cor 11:3-4 and 2 John 1:9) on his feet.

Isaiah 43:25
“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.

Isaiah 52:1
Awake, awake, Zion, clothe yourself with strength! Put on your garments of splendor, Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again.

Isaiah 61:10
I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

Ezekiel 36:25
I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols.

Ezekiel 42:14
Once the priests enter the holy precincts, they are not to go into the outer court until they leave behind the garments in which they minister, for these are holy. They are to put on other clothes before they go near the places that are for the people.”

Micah 7:18
Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.

Micah 7:19
You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.

Zechariah 3:9
See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says the LORD Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day.

“As the people of God afflict their souls before Him, pleading for purity of heart, the command is given, “Take away the filthy garments” from them, and the encouraging words are spoken, “Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment” (Zechariah 3:4 “And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.”). The spotless robe of Christ’s righteousness is placed upon the tried, tempted, yet faithful children of God. The despised remnant are clothed in glorious apparel, nevermore to be defiled by the corruptions of the world. Their names are retained in the Lamb’s book of life, enrolled among the faithful of all ages. They have resisted thewiles of the deceiver; they have not been turned from their loyalty by the dragon’s roar. Now they are eternally secure from thetempter’s devices. Their sins are transferred to the originator of sin. And the remnant are not only pardoned and accepted, but honored. “A fair miter” is set upon their heads. They are to be as kings and priests unto God. While Satan was urging his accusations and seeking to destroy this company, holy angels, unseen, were passing to and fro, placing upon them the seal of the living God. These are they that stand upon Mount Zion with the Lamb, having the Father’s name written in their foreheads. They sing the new song before the throne, that song which no man can learn save the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. “These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God” (Revelation 14:4, 5).”  Lift Him Up, p. 377.3

“Who is Christ?—He is the only begotten Son of the living God. He is to the Father as a word that expresses the thought,—as a THOUGHT made audible. Christ is the word of God. Christ said to Philip, “He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father.” His words were the echo of God’s words.

I would like to personally extend an invitation to you to JOIN the Bridegroom and His Bride at the Banquet Hall, the FEAST is the BREAD of LIFE…JESUS CHRIST, the WORD OF GOD. OUR MINDS become the sacred dwelling place of BOTH God and His Son’s PRESENCE and Character. Character means POWER. POWER AND INFLUENCE.

Feast = Christ who is the Word of God the Bible, the Words of God sent to us through His Son
Banquet Hall or Christ’s House = Mind of Christ in Us. The Sanctuary, the Most Holy place, the Bridal chambers are the Mind of God in Us through Christ. OUR MINDS become the sacred dwelling place of Christ and His Father and God. We are filled with their SPIRIT, THEIR WORDS, THEIR ACTIONS, THEIR CHARACTER, THEIR DESTINY! ETERNAL LIFE, IMMORTALITY we receive at the second coming of Christ!

WITH A FAITH AND ASSURANCE THAT THEY HAD NEVER BEFORE KNOWN, THEY ACCEPTED THE TEACHINGS OF THE SACRED WORD. No longer was it a matter of FAITH with them that Christ was the Son of God. They KNEW that, although clothed with humanity, He was indeed the Messiah, and they told their experience to the world with a confidence which carried with it the conviction that God was with them.” –{The Acts of the Apostles, p. 45.3}.

Both groups, the 12 apostles and the 144,000 who come out of the Adventist wedding procession are leaders who teach historical Adventist doctrines since 1844 until probation closes bring forth children of the bridechamber.

The feast has been available for the taking of all since the resurrection of Christ. The Parable of the Ten Virgins has been in progress since October 22, 1844 until Christ Second Coming.  FEAST upon the Body of Christ, the Bread of life is His Words given to Him by His Father to share with us. Study the Bible and SOP, Study, pray and fast like your life depends on it, because it does! John 17:3 (KJV) “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”

Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. Mark 13:33.

“Take ye heed, watch and pray” were the words of our Saviour spoken in reference to the time of the end, and His second coming to take His faithful children home.

First, you are to watch. Watch, lest you should speak hastily, fretfully and impatiently. Watch, lest pride should find a place in your heart. Watch, lest evil passions should overcome you, instead of your subduing them. Watch, lest a careless, indifferent spirit comes upon you, and you neglect your duty and become light and trifling, and your influence savor of death, rather than life.

Second, you are to pray. Jesus would not have enjoined this upon you, unless there was actual necessity for it. It is well known to Him that of yourself you cannot overcome the many temptations of the enemy, and the many snares laid for your feet. He has not left you alone to do this; but has provided a way that you can obtain help. Therefore He has bid you to pray.

To pray aright is to ask God in faith for the very things you need. Go to your chamber, or in some retired place, and ask your Father for Jesus’ sake to help you. There is power in that prayer that is sent up from a heart convinced of its own weakness, yet earnestly longing for that strength that comes from God. The earnest, fervent prayer will be heard and answered. Go to your God who is strong, and who loves to hear children pray, and, although you may feel very weak, and find yourself at times overcome by the enemy, because you have neglected the first command of our Saviour, to watch, yet do not give up the struggle. Make stronger efforts yourself than before. Faint not. Cast yourself at the feet of Jesus, who has been tempted, and knows how to help such as are tempted. Confess your faults, your weakness, and that you must have help to overcome, or you perish. And as you ask, you must believe that God hears you…. God will help you. Angels will watch over you.

But before you can expect this help, you must do what you can on your part. Watch and pray. Let your prayers be fervent. Let this be the language of your heart, “I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.” Have a set time, a special season for prayer at least three times a day. Morning, noon, and at night Daniel prayed to his God, notwithstanding the king’s decree, and the fearful den of lions. He was not ashamed or afraid to pray, but with his windows opened he prayed three times a day. Did God forget His faithful servant when he was cast into the lions’ den? O, No. He was with him there all night. He closed the mouths of these hungry lions, and they could not hurt the praying man of God (Youth’s Instructor, October 1, 1855).

For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.” “And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 7:14-17; Revelation 21:4.

We need to keep ever before us this vision of things unseen. It is thus that we shall be able to set a right value on the things of eternity and the things of time. It is this that will give us power to influence others for the higher life.

In the Mount With God

“Come up to Me into the mount,” God bids us. To Moses, before he could be God’s instrument in delivering Israel, was appointed the forty years of communion with Him in the mountain solitudes. Before bearing God’s message to Pharaoh, he spoke with the angel in the burning bush. Before receiving God’s law as the representative of His people, he was called into the mount, and beheld His glory. Before executing justice on the idolaters, he was hidden in the cleft of the rock, and the Lord said, “I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee,” “merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving-kindness and truth; … and that will by no means clear the guilty.” Exodus 33:19; 34:6, 7, A.R.V. Before he laid down, with his life, his burden for Israel, God called him to the top of Pisgah and spread out before him the glory of the Promised Land.

Before the disciples went forth on their mission, they were called up into the mount with Jesus. Before the power and glory of Pentecost, came the night of communion with the

Saviour, the meeting on the mountain in Galilee, the parting scene upon Olivet, with the angel’s promise, and the days of prayer and communion in the upper chamber.

Jesus, when preparing for some great trial or some important work, would resort to the solitude of the mountains and spend the night in prayer to His Father. A night of prayer preceded the ordination of the apostles and the Sermon on the Mount, the transfiguration, the agony of the judgment hall and the cross, and the resurrection glory.

The Privilege of Prayer

We, too, must have times set apart for meditation and prayer and for receiving spiritual refreshing. We do not value the power and efficacy of prayer as we should. Prayer and faith will do what no power on earth can accomplish. We are seldom, in all respects, placed in the same position twice. We continually have new scenes and new trials to pass through, where past experience cannot be a sufficient guide. We must have the continual light that comes from God.

Christ is ever sending messages to those who listen for His voice. On the night of the agony in Gethsemane, the sleeping disciples heard not the voice of Jesus. They had a dim sense of the angels’ presence, but lost the power and glory of the scene. Because of their drowsiness and stupor they failed of receiving the evidence that would have strengthened their souls for the terrible scenes before them. Thus today the very men who most need divine instruction often fail of receiving it, because they do not place themselves in communion with heaven.

The temptations to which we are daily exposed make prayer a necessity. Dangers beset every path. Those who are seeking to rescue others from vice and ruin are especially exposed to temptation. In constant contact with evil, they need a strong hold upon God lest they themselves be corrupted. Short and decisive are the steps that lead men down from high and holy ground to a low level. In a moment decisions may be made that fix one’s condition forever. One failure to overcome leaves the soul unguarded. One evil habit, if not firmly resisted, will strengthen into chains of steel, binding the whole man.
The reason why so many are left to themselves in places of temptation is that they do not set the Lord always before them. When we permit our communion with God to be broken, our defense is departed from us. Not all your good purposes and good intentions will enable you to withstand evil. You must be men and women of prayer. Your petitions must not be faint, occasional, and fitful, but earnest, persevering, and constant. It is not always necessary to bow upon your knees in order to pray. Cultivate the habit of talking with the Saviour when you are alone, when you are walking, and when you are busy with your daily labor. Let the heart be continually uplifted in silent petition for help, for light, for strength, for knowledge. Let every breath be a prayer.
As workers for God we must reach men where they are, surrounded with darkness, sunken in vice, and stained with corruption. But while we stay our minds upon Him who is our sun and our shield, the evil that surrounds us will not bring one stain upon our garments. As we work to save the souls that are ready to perish we shall not be put to shame if we make God our trust. Christ in the heart, Christ in the life, this is our safety. The atmosphere of His presence will fill the soul with abhorrence of all that is evil. Our spirit may be so identified with His that in thought and aim we shall be one with Him.
It was through faith and prayer that Jacob, from being a man of feebleness and sin, became a prince with God. It is thus that you may become men and women of high and holy purpose, of noble life, men and women who will not for any consideration be swayed from truth, right, and justice. All are pressed with urgent cares, burdens, and duties, but the more difficult your position and the heavier your burdens, the more you need Jesus.
It is a serious mistake to neglect the public worship of God. The privileges of divine service should not be lightly regarded. Those who attend upon the sick are often unable to avail themselves of these privileges, but they should be careful not to absent themselves needlessly from the house of worship.
In ministering to the sick, more than in any merely secular business, success depends on the spirit of consecration and self-sacrifice with which the work is done. Those who bear responsibilities need to place themselves where they will be

deeply impressed by the Spirit of God. You should have as much greater anxiety than do others for the aid of the Holy Spirit and for a knowledge of God as your position of trust is more responsible than that of others.

Nothing is more needed in our work than the practical results of communion with God. We should show by our daily lives that we have peace and rest in the Saviour. His peace in the heart will shine forth in the countenance. It will give to the voice a persuasive power. Communion with God will ennoble the character and the life. Men will take knowledge of us, as of the first disciples, that we have been with Jesus. This will impart to the worker a power that nothing else can give. Of this power he must not allow himself to be deprived.

We must live a twofold life—a life of thought and action, of silent prayer and earnest work. The strength received through communion with God, united with earnest effort in training the mind to thoughtfulness and caretaking, prepares one for daily duties and keeps the spirit in peace under all circumstances, however trying.

The Divine Counselor

When in trouble, many think they must appeal to some earthly friend, telling him their perplexities, and begging for help. Under trying circumstances unbelief fills their hearts, and the way seems dark. And all the time there stands beside them the mighty Counselor of the ages, inviting them to place their confidence in Him. Jesus, the great Burden Bearer, is saying, “Come unto Me, and I will give you rest.” Shall we turn from Him to uncertain human beings, who are as dependent upon God as we ourselves are?

You may feel the deficiency of your character and the smallness of your ability in comparison with the greatness of the work. But if you had the greatest intellect ever given to man, it would not be sufficient for your work. “Without Me ye can do nothing,” says our Lord and Saviour. John 15:5. The result of all we do rests in the hands of God. Whatever may betide, lay hold upon Him with steady, persevering confidence.

In your business, in companionship for leisure hours, and in alliance for life, let all the associations you form be entered upon with earnest, humble prayer. You will thus show that you honor God, and God will honor you. Pray when you are fainthearted. When you are desponding, close the lips firmly to men; do not shadow the path of others; but tell everything to Jesus. Reach up your hands for help. In your weakness lay hold of infinite strength. Ask for humility, wisdom, courage, increase of faith, that you may see light in God’s light and rejoice in His love.

Consecration; Trust

When we are humble and contrite we stand where God can and will manifest Himself to us. He is well pleased when we urge past mercies and blessings as a reason why He should bestow on us greater blessings. He will more than fulfill the expectations of those who trust fully in Him. The Lord Jesus knows just what His children need, how much divine power we will appropriate for the blessing of humanity; and He bestows upon us all that we will employ in blessing others and ennobling our own souls.

We must have less trust in what we ourselves can do, and more trust in what the Lord can do for and through us.

THE MINISTRY OF HEALING, PAGE 513

Many of our people are backsliding from God. We need to arouse. Let every soul that has named the name of Christ depart from iniquity. We want a pure Christianity. Great dangers are lurking for us on every side. When they most need the presence of God, many have it least. They are in danger of becoming like the Jewish nation, who knew not the Scriptures nor the power of God. Like the teachers of Israel, you may explain Bible truth to others, and yet not practice it in your daily life. If the Jews had possessed an experimental knowledge of the Scriptures, they would not have been ignorant of the power of God. Like them, we have great light and privileges; but many do not respond to these, and herein lies their peril. When Jesus wept over Jerusalem, his tears were for all who abuse present privileges. He wept that so many who profess his name fail to become what God designed them to be; that they continue in sin and weakness, while he is willing and able to save them if they will but come to him. The Saviour says, “What more could I have done that I have not done in it?” He has dealt with his people as a loving father with a wayward and rebellious child. But he sees grace resisted, privileges abused, opportunities slighted. Where he had a right to expect earnest, vital piety, he sees insincerity, hollow formalism, and Pharisaic pride. Neglect of light is chargeable on those whom God has intrusted with great and solemn truths. Ingratitude for God’s mercies, abuse of blood-bought privileges, stand registered against many in the books ofheaven, and are treasuring up for them wrath against the day of wrath. Vengeance will surely be visited on those who have had so great light, yet are so cold and unimpressible that no light shines from them to the world.

God has loaded us with his benefits. Immortal blessings have been poured upon us in great measure. Messengers have been sent with warnings, reproofs, and entreaties. God’s servants have wept and prayed over the lukewarm state of the church. Some may arouse, but only to fall back into unconsciousness of their sin and peril. Passion, worldliness, malice, envy pride, strife for supremacy, make our churches weak and powerless. Some of Christ’s embassadors are carrying a heavy burden on their souls, because their message is treated by so many as an idle tale. The eye of Jesus, looking down the ages, was fixed upon our time when he said, “If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong to thy peace!” It is still thy day, O church of God, whom he has made the depositary of his law. But this day of trust and probation is fast drawing to a close. The sun is fast westering. Can it be that it will set, and thou not know the things that belong unto thy peace? Must the irrevocable sentence be passed, “But now they are hid from thine eyes”? I tell you there is need to be alarmed. It is time to seek God earnestly, saying with Jacob, “I will not let thee go except thou bless me.” It will be of no avail to make a spasmodic effort, only to fall back into spiritual lethargy and lukewarmness. The past, with the slighted mercies, the admonitions unheeded, the earthly passions uncorrected, the privileges unimproved, the soul temple filled with desecrated shrines,—all is recorded in the books of heaven. But most solemn moments are still before you. Because of past neglect, the efforts you make must be the more earnest.

The Saviour speaks to his people, “Be zealous and repent.” It is not ministers whom you have slighted; it is not the warnings of men that you have rejected; it is not my delegated prophets that you have refused to hear, but your Redeemer, your only hope. If ye are destroyed, it is yourselves alone that are responsible. Ye will not come to me that ye might have life. “O, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often would I have gathered thy children together as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not.” I desired to save you, but ye would not be doers of my word. The arm strong to save, is also strong to punish. Jesus is now looking from heaven above with yearning pity upon thee, even thee in this thy day, O thoughtless, careless soul. But unless there is in our churches a general arousing, unless there is an individual work of confessing and putting away sin, unless all shall give earnest heed to the things that belong to their peace, the words of Christ may at any moment be applicable to them: “Now they are hid from thine eyes.” I intrusted thee with a solemn, sacred message of truth to be made known to others, but thou hast been unfaithful to thy holy trust. Souls have not been enlightened, warned, and urged to repentance. Their blood will I require at thy hand.

Will our churches humble themselves before the Lord in this day of atonement? Will they put away the sins which defile their garments of character, and separate them from God? The present is our day of visitation. Look not to a future, more convenient season, when the cross to be lifted will be less heavy, when the inclinations of the carnal heart will be subdued with less effort. “Today,” saith the Spirit of God, “if ye will hear his voice, harden not your heart.” Today go about the work, else you may be one day too late. The impression that you have now may not be as strong tomorrow. Satan’s snare may close about you. The candlestick may be moved out of its place, and you left in darkness. “See that you refuse not him that speaketh.” Says the true Witness, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.” Every warning, reproof, and entreaty in the word of God, or through his delegated messengers, is a knock at the door of the heart; it is the voice of Jesus, asking for entrance. With every knock unheeded, your determination to open becomes weaker and weaker. If the voice of Jesus is not heeded at once, it becomes confused in the mind with a multitude of other voices, the world’s care and business engross the attention, and conviction dies away. The heart becomes less impressible, and lapses into a perilous unconsciousness of the shortness of time, and of the great eternity beyond. The heavenly Guest is standing at your door, while you are piling up obstructions to bar his entrance. Jesus is knocking through the prosperity he gives you. He loads you with blessings to test your fidelity, that they may flow out from you to others. Will you permit your selfishness to triumph? Will you squander God’s talents, and lose your soul through idolatrous love of the blessings he has given? Ellen White, RH November 2, 1886, par. 2

Wedding Party Procession

The Bridegrooms procession that the 5 wise virgins JOIN has been in progress since 1844. All through the years since 1844, the Spirit (Christ=Bridegroom) and the Bride call to the guests to join this procession.

Revelation 22:17 “And the Spirit and the bride say, COME. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”

Matthew 25:6 “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.”

The procession came into view in 1844 and is headed to the banquet, the Supper of the Lamb. The Supper of the Lamb are those who feed on the Word of God. The gospel feast. This procession is on it’s way to this gospel feast, the everlasting gospel is the truth about God and His Son.

“Cut short in righteousness” the experience of the 12 Apostles during Pentecost will be similar to the 144,000 and the LOUD CRY testing perfecting message and the guests who come out and JOIN the wedding party procession that has been in progress since 1844:

“Pentecost brought them the heavenly illumination. The truths they could not understand while Christ was with them were now unfolded. With a faith and assurance that they had never before known, they accepted the teachings of the Sacred Word. No longer was IT A MATTER OF FAITH with them that Christ was the Son of God. They KNEW that, although clothed with humanity, He was indeed the Messiah, and THEY TOLD THEIR EXPERIENCE to the world with a CONFIDENCE which carried with it the CONVICTION that God was with them.” {The Acts of the Apostles, p. 45.3}

“This is the test. Those who are counted among the wise virgins will let their light burn
in good works. There are many who will not remain at the feet of Jesus, and learn of Him.
They have not a knowledge of His ways. Let none rest in the idea that baptism has saved
them, while they give no evidence that they are conformed to the image of Christ, while
they cling to their old habits, while they exert their influence on the side of the world, and
weave their fabric with the threads of worldly ideas and customs. These have not kept the
oil in the vessels with their lamps. They are not ready for the Bridegroom. The oil is the
holy grace that is sent from heaven, and there must be an inward adorning with that grace,
that they may be enabled to stand when He appeareth.” Manuscript Releases, volume 16.

The testing process in the previous passage is associated with the foolish virgins, who are also
“false prophets” “who fight against the truth of God’s word.” The path the Advent people ascend
represents a progressive testing process which is
accomplished among the wise and foolish virgins.
That path was also a subject of an impressive dream
given to Sister White.
“While at Battle Creek in August, 1868, I
dreamed of being with a large body of people.
A portion of this assembly started out prepared
to journey. We had heavily loaded wagons.
As we journeyed, the road seemed to ascend.
On one side of this road was a deep precipice;
on the other was a high, smooth, white wall,
like the hard finish upon plastered rooms.
“As we journeyed on, the road grew narrower
and steeper. In some places it seemed so very
narrow that we concluded that we could no
longer travel with the loaded wagons. We
then loosed them from the horses, took a
portion of the luggage from the wagons and
placed it upon the horses, and journeyed on
horseback.
“As we progressed, the path still continued
to grow narrow. We were obliged to press close
to the wall, to save ourselves from falling off
the narrow road down the steep precipice. As
we did this, the luggage on the horses pressed
against the wall and caused us to sway toward
the precipice. We feared that we should fall
and be dashed in pieces on the rocks. We
then cut the luggage from the horses, and
it fell over the precipice. We continued on
horseback, greatly fearing, as we came to the
narrower places in the road, that we should
lose our balance and fall. At such times a hand
seemed to take the bridle and guide us over
the perilous way.
“As the path grew more narrow, we decided
that we could no longer go with safety on
horseback, and we left the horses and went
on foot, in single file, one following in the
footsteps of another. At this point small
cords were let down from the top of the pure
white wall; these we eagerly grasped, to aid
us in keeping our balance upon the path. As
we traveled, the cord moved along with us.
The path finally became so narrow that we
concluded that we could travel more safely
without our shoes, so we slipped them from
our feet and went on some distance without
them. Soon it was decided that we could travel
more safely without our stockings; these were
removed, and we journeyed on with bare
feet.
“We then thought of those who had not
accustomed themselves to privations and
hardships. Where were such now? They were
not in the company. At every change some
were left behind, and those only remained
who had accustomed themselves to endure
hardships. The privations of the way only
made these more eager to press on to the end.
“Our danger of falling from the pathway
increased. We pressed close to the white
wall, yet could not place our feet fully upon
the path, for it was too narrow. We then
suspended nearly our whole weight upon the
cords, exclaiming: ‘We have hold from above!
We have hold from above!’ The same words
were uttered by all the company in the narrow
pathway. As we heard the sounds of mirth and
revelry that seemed to come from the abyss
below, we shuddered. We heard the profane
oath, the vulgar jest, and low, vile songs. We
heard the war song and the dance song. We
heard instrumental music and loud laughter,
mingled with cursing and cries of anguish
and bitter wailing, and were more anxious
than ever to keep upon the narrow, difficult
pathway. Much of the time we were compelled
to suspend our whole weight upon the cords,
which increased in size as we progressed.
“I noticed that the beautiful white wall was

stained with blood. It caused a feeling of regret to see the wall thus stained. This feeling, however,
lasted but for a moment, as I soon thought that it was all as it should be. Those who are following
after will know that others have passed the narrow, difficult way before them, and will conclude
that if others were able to pursue their onward course, they can do the same. And as the blood shall
be pressed from their aching feet, they will not faint with discouragement; but, seeing the blood
upon the wall, they will know that others have endured the same pain.
“At length we came to a large chasm, at which our path ended. There was nothing now to
guide the feet, nothing upon which to rest them. Our whole reliance must be upon the cords,
which had increased in size until they were as large as our bodies. Here we were for a time thrown
into perplexity and distress. We inquired in fearful whispers: ‘To what is the cord attached?’ My
husband was just before me. Large drops of sweat were falling from his brow, the veins in his
neck and temples were increased to double their usual size, and suppressed, agonizing groans came from his lips. The sweat was dropping from my face, and I felt such anguish as I had never felt before. A fearful struggle was before us. Should we fail here, all the difficulties of our journey had been experienced for nought. “Before us, on the other side of the chasm, was a beautiful field of green grass, about six inches high. I could not see the sun; but bright, soft beams of light, resembling fine gold and silver, were resting upon this field. Nothing I had seen upon earth could compare in beauty and glory with this field. But could we succeed in reaching it? was the anxious inquiry. Should the cord break, we must perish. Again, in whispered anguish, the words were breathed: ‘What holds the cord?’ For a moment we hesitated to venture. Then we exclaimed: ‘Our only hope is to trust wholly to the cord. It has been our dependence all the difficult way. It will not fail us now.’ Still we were hesitating and distressed. The words were then spoken: ‘God holds the cord. We need not fear.’ These words were then repeated by those behind us, accompanied with: ‘He will not fail us now. He has brought us thus far in safety.’
“My husband then swung himself over the fearful abyss into the beautiful field beyond. I
immediately followed. And, oh, what a sense of relief and gratitude to God we felt! I heard voices
raised in triumphant praise to God. I was happy, perfectly happy.
“I awoke, and found that from the anxiety I had experienced in passing over the difficult route,
every nerve in my body seemed to be in a tremor. This dream needs no comment. It made such an
impression upon my mind that probably every item in it will be vivid before me while my memory
shall continue.” Testimonies, volume 2, 594–597.
Five changes took place in the journey up the narrow path to the beautiful field, and there were some that were left behind at every change. There were five tests where some were lost, thereby revealing a company that was victorious over the five tests, thus marking the distinction between the five wise and the five foolish virgins.

The GOSPEL FEAST, the Supper of the Lamb that we are called out of apostasy is to feast upon Christ’s Body, the Word of GOD!, to partake of His Divine Nature or character by claiming these sacred words found in the Bible verses that apply to each person’s particular situation. CLAIM THE WHOLE BIBLE AS YOUR VERY OWN PROMISE/LAW as your very own! God WILL NOT FAIL YOU! HIS WORD WILL NOT RETURN UNTO HIM VOID!

Christ is the Bridegroom! God has picked out His Bride for Him! These special people who are chosen from among the common people, not trained by literary institutions but rather qualified by the unction of the Holy Spirit. Christ like Jacob waited and worked for Rachel, is waiting with longing desire for His Bride and GUESTS that join the wedding procession to GET READY! We are to be perfuming ourselves with the character of Christ like Esther perfumed herself when she got ready to go before the King and he chose her to replace Queen Vashti because she would not show her beauty to the King. God’s people, like Queen Esther, spend 2 days or 2,000 years (Hosea 6:2 and 2 Peter 3:8) getting ready, repenting, fasting, putting on their ROYAL ROBES, the DIVINE POWER=GODLY CHARACTER=THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS, getting ready to go in before the King, GOD the Father, to see if He will hold out the golden scepter to us so we can live in His Holy sight in Heaven! God’s golden scepter IS JESUS CHRIST that He holds out to us so that we can reach out and touch HIM by faith and live in the sight of a Holy God because of the Righteous Royal Robes (Character=thoughts and feelings) that we receive from Christ by faith by reaching out and touching the hem of His garment by faith, our sins are covered by His blood that issued forth out of our Saviour on our behalf.

You can be Holy! which means PERFECT! Holy simply means being in constant agreement with God. We do this by inviting Christ into our hearts. Claiming His victory as ours! (DA123) Claiming His blood as ours, His soul, His breath, His risen life, His victory over appetite, His victory over words, His victory over thoughts, His victory over actions! Claim His MIND as your very own! Practice the presence of Christ! “Arise, shine; for thy light (living reality experiences of Jesus helping you in your life trials) is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.” Isaiah 60:1. To those who go out to meet the Bridegroom is this message given.”  Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 420.3

If we would develop a character which God can accept, we must form correct habits in our religious life. Daily prayer is as essential to growth in grace and even to spiritual life itself, as is temporal food to physical well-being. We should accustom ourselves to often lift the thoughts to God in prayer. If the mind wanders, we must bring it back; by persevering effort, habit will finally make it easy. We cannot for one moment separate ourselves from Christ with safety. We may have His presence to attend us at every step, but only by observing the conditions which He has Himself laid down. Religion must be made the great business of life. Everything else should be held subordinate to this. All our powers of soul, body, and spirit must be engaged in the Christian warfare. We must look to Christ for strength and grace, and we shall gain the victory as surely as Jesus did for us.” (The Review and Herald, November 15, 1887).

710a6-arkinprocession5Think of yourself, your head as the Ark of the Covenant, sitting on top of your shoulders like the ark sat on the Levites shoulders. This was a symbol of what your body, your head should contain – the same thing the Ark contained! “While Jesus ministers in the sanctuary above, He is still by His Spirit the minister of the church on earth. He is withdrawn from the eye of sense, but His parting promise is fulfilled, “Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” Matt. 28:20. While He delegates His power to inferior ministers, His energizing presence is still with His church.”

YOUR BODY is the “church”, your MIND and BODY IS THE DWELLING PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH GOD AND HIS SON’S SPIRIT! THAT is why God says to be ye Holy or perfect because He cannot dwell where SIN is dwelling! PRAISE GOD CONTINUALLY! SHOUT IT! SING IT! PRAY IT! TALK IT! THE WONDERFUL PRAISE OF OUR WONDERFUL GOD AND HIS DEAR PRECIOUS SON! Jesus gives us His mind by coming to dwell in us by His Spirit. His Spirit is his mind. He communicates with us through our minds. When we take hold of the reality of this wonderful provision, and practice the presence of Jesus, then we will truly experience the only power (character=thoughts and feelings) that can resist temptation and overcome sin. We MUST have HiS MIND in US!

Note:    Our Saviour’s  Own Words . . . . “If ye love Me, keep My Commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another (MORE, EVEN GREATER) Comforter . . . so that He (the Father) may abide with you for ever !” John 14:15-16  Which proceedeth from the Father…

Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid . . . . Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you.   If ye loved Me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto The Father: for My Father is GREATER THAN I !” John 14:27-28

For ye are the temple of the Living God . . . as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God (Elohim – Mighty One), and they shall be My people . . . . And I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the LORD Almighty !”   II Corinthians 6:16-18

John 14:23 “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode with him.”

John 14:21
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John 14:24
He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

John 15:10
If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

“Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.” Heb. 7:25. Though the ministration was to be removed from the earthly to the heavenly temple; though the sanctuary and our great high priest would be invisible to human sight, yet the disciples were to suffer no loss thereby. They would realize no break in their communion, and no diminution of power because of the Saviour’s absence. While Jesus ministers in the sanctuary above, He is still by His Spirit the minister of the church on earth. He is withdrawn from the eye of sense, but His parting promise is fulfilled, “Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” Matt. 28:20. While He delegates His power to inferior ministers, His energizing presence is still with His church.

“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, . . . Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Heb 4:14-16.

The 144,000. Who are they?

Isaiah 54:5 “For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.”

  1. The 144,000 will be highly dedicated and loyal to the service of God.
  2.  The 144,000 will sing a song of experience and victory that others cannot sing.
  3. The 144,000 will be empowered by the Two Witnesses for a limited time – 1,260 days.
  4. The 144,000 will accomplish in this short amount of time what denominations have failed to do during the past 2,000 years.
  5. The prophets of the Antichrist will greatly outnumber the 144,000.

End-time Perspective

The 144,000 will accomplish, through the enabling power of God, something that mere men and women cannot do. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, the 144,000 will proclaim the everlasting gospel to every living person on Earth in less than 1,260 days! The result will be an international harvest of people that will be numberless. Consider for a moment the significance of preaching the everlasting gospel. What is the everlasting gospel?

The everlasting gospel is the truth about God and the terms and conditions of His salvation. The 144,000 will proclaim THE TRUTH and this truth will expose the false teachings of every religious system on Earth! This is an amazing point: God will not use an existing denomination as a vehicle to proclaim the everlasting gospel during the end-time. If this startles you, consider this point: The book of Revelation does not identify a “true denomination” at the end of time. Instead, Revelation identifies a “true gospel” and identifies the people who cling to it as “the remnant of the woman.” (Rev 12:17; 14:12)

Most people will agree that God does not save people because of a church affiliation. Salvation is not gained through membership in an Earthly organization. In fact, if God used a religious organization to proclaim the everlasting gospel during the end-time, church affiliation would be an insurmountable problem for many people. Prejudice is a human frailty. Some people would rather die and go to hell than to join another church or even worse, the church of someone who has offended them. Consider the following example: Let us suppose that God looks down on Earth and decides to use a particular sect within the Moslem faith to give the truth for the end-time. How many Catholics, Jews or Christians do you think would join “that church” to be saved? Now turn the table around and ask yourself how many Catholics, Jews, Protestants or Moslems would join your particular church to be saved?

God knows that Earthly religion has more to do with social structure than with a personal love for TRUTH. (Statistics show that 95% of people remain loyal to the religious system into which they were born and raised in – even if they fail to practice their religion.) Since properties of religion are so influential within the human race, God must test humankind. Because social relationships can be more important than loving truth, God must test people. A significant distinction exists between serving God and serving the church, and God must test humankind to see if we love Him and His truth above everything else. The test will be simple and applied without partiality. God will require everyone to leave his or her church for the sake of truth! Only then will the object of our deepest affection be revealed. At that time, some people will discover they loved their church more than they loved God! What a sad thought! Only when a contest exists between God and a person’s church can humans detect the distinction that exists between serving God and serving the church. Until this test is applied, most people cannot understand this distinction or problem. Remember, in Jesus’ day, the Pharisees could not discern how they were as blind as Jesus claimed! However, the day is coming when the same test given the Jewish nation will be applied to everyone, and each of us will be forced to make a choice: Keep the commandments of – God or religion. Unfortunately, many people cannot separate themselves from their church of birth, even when presented with the plainest truth.

“Were it not for Christ’s atoning sacrifice, there would be nothing in us in which God could delight. All the natural goodness of man is worthless in God’s sight. He does not take pleasure in any man who retains his old nature, and is not so renewed in knowledge and grace that he is a new man in Christ. Our education, our talents, our means, are gifts entrusted to us by God, that he may test us. If we use them for self-glorification, God says, “I cannot delight in them; for Christ has died for them in vain.” RH August 24, 1897, par. 3

Ezekiel 16:8
“‘Later I passed by, and when I looked at you and saw that you were old enough for love, I spread the corner of my garment over you and covered your naked body (naked means without God). I gave you my solemn oath and entered into a covenant with you, declares the Sovereign LORD, and you became mine.

Jeremiah 2:2
“Go and proclaim in the hearing of Jerusalem: “This is what the LORD says: “‘I remember the devotion of your youth, how as a bride you loved me and followed me through the wilderness, through a land not sown.

Jeremiah 31:33
“This is the covenant I will make with the people of (spiritual) Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

Ruth 3:9
“Who are you?” he asked. “I am your servant Ruth,” she said. “Spread the corner of your garment over me, since you are a guardian-redeemer of our family.”

Isaiah 62:5
As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.

Isaiah 54:6
The LORD will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit– a wife who married young, only to be rejected,” says your God.

Isaiah 62:4
No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the LORD will take delight in you, and your land will be married.

2 Corinthians 11:2
I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him.

Hosea 2:19
I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion.

Hosea 2:20 “I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD.”

Hosea 2:16
“In that day,” declares the LORD, “you will call me ‘my husband‘; you will no longer call me ‘my master.’

Jeremiah 3:14
“Return, faithless people,” declares the LORD, “for I am your husband. I will choose you–one from a town and two from a clan–and bring you to Zion.

The Spirit and the Bride = the bride is the 144,000 who have been chosen from among the common people to be leaders since 1844 to the Sunday law. God chose 12 apostle leaders from among the common people. God chooses (144,000 end time leaders) His Bride from among the common people from 1844 and on until the Sunday law goes forth. Those who believe in the 3 angels and the 7th day Sabbath messages and help to give these warning messages who die in the faith will be raised in a special/limited resurrection (Daniel 12:2 and Revelation 1:7) when God gives the covenant of peace and the time of the 7th plague/Christ’s 2nd advent.’

Smith concludes that those who are resurrected during this special resurrection are “some of the pre-eminently wicked, and some of the pre-eminently good” and includes “all those who have died in the third angel’s message.

In answering the question as to the identity of the 144,000, Smith argues that it cannot be those who never died, because of their redemption from not only the earth, but also from amongst humanity. Answering the reader’s inquiry as to how this could be possible, the reply “that they come up in the special resurrection, embracing a limited number of both righteous and wicked, as mentioned in Dan.12:2 and Rev.1:7. Those who, in this resurrection, come up to everlasting life (though notthen made immortal) are those who belong to the 144,000 because they have died in themessage.”
Smith also goes on to further refine Ellen White’s view of “those who pierced Him”
“The Weekly – Our Work” by Joshua V. Himes in the March 15, 1842 edition of the Signs of the Times, where he writes “Then let all cry aloud and spare not, that the crucified Lord is about returning in glory to take vengeance upon his enemies: not only upon those who pierced his sacred body with nails and with spears at Jerusalem, but those also that pierce him every day by their sins and iniquities, their hard speeches, concerning his person, his religion, and his coming.”
the two texts are merged together to provide a unified thought on a special resurrection that consists of a limited class of individuals at just prior to the Second Coming of Christ. It is important to stop and look 10 Joshua V. Himes, “The End of the Prophetic Periods,” Signs of the Times, April 5, 1843.11Joshua V. Himes and Josiah Litch, eds., Millennial Musings: A Choice Selection of Hymns: Designed for the Use of Second Advent Meetings (Boston, MA: [s.n], 1842).
6at the argument that Smith provides for this special event, because although Ellen White had already commented on it, Smith provides something she had not, a solid biblical view of the texts in question and supporting texts related to the topic. In his explanation on Daniel 12:2, Smith plainly asks if the text is referring to the general resurrection, “
or is there to intervene between Christ’s reception of the kingdom and his revelation to earth in all his advent glory (Luke 19:12) a special resurrection answering to the description here given?”
In turning to Revelation 1:7, he clearly identifies those who see Him that pierced Him as being those “who were chiefly concerned in the tragedy of his death” for “they shall behold him returning to earth in triumph and glory.”
Smithin turning to an explanation of Revelation 20:5, explains that the wicked are resurrected only after the millennium, so what is presented in Daniel and Revelation is a special resurrection. His words sum up the special resurrection thought best:Here a partial resurrection is brought to view, or a resurrection of a certain class of each,righteous and wicked, before the general resurrection of either class. Many, not all, that sleep shall awake. Some of the righteous, not all of them, to everlasting life, and some of the wicked, not all of them, to shame and everlasting contempt. And this resurrection transpires in connection with the great time of trouble such as never was, which just precedes the coming of the Lord. May not “they also which pierced him,” be among those who then come up to shame and everlasting contempt? What could be more appropriate,so far as human minds can judge, than that those who took part in the scene of our Lord’s greatest humiliation and other special leaders in crime against him, should be raised to behold his terrible majesty, as he comes forth triumphantly, in flaming fire, to take vengeance on them that know not God, and obey not his gospel?14 (Emphasis by Uriah Smith) Finally Smith identifies when this event will take place. Following the biblical context that Ellen White uses for placing it during the seventh plague, Uriah Smith utilizes Revelation 16:17; 22:11 and Joel 3:16.
the ideas are merged together of Daniel 12:2 and Revelation 1:7. As is seen, the textual references, as opposed to

Spiritual Gifts, are now included:Graves are opened, and “many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth” “awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.” [Daniel 12:2.] All who have died in the faith of the third angel’s message come forth from the tomb glorified, to hear God’s covenant of peace with those who have kept his law. “They also which pierced Him,” [Revelation 1:7.] those that mocked and derided Christ’s dying agonies,and the most violent opposers of his truth and his people, are raised to behold him in his glory, and to see the honor placed upon the loyal and obedient.” 

Ellen G. White, The Great Controversy between Christ and Satan (Mountain View, CA: Pacific Press Pub. Assoc., 1907), 637.
“those who have fallen asleep under the sealing message, come forth glorified, ready to receive the touch of immortality when Christ appears.”
“Dan. 12:2. A partial resurrection takes place at this time. G.C. 637”
in providing biblical textssurrounding the seventh plague, and in 1919 in dealing specifically with Daniel 12 writes, “Dan.12:2. Partial resurrection. G.C. 637.”

Ezekiel 34:25 “And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.” This happens at the start of the plagues, when Christ stands up and says IT IS FINISHED and the 144,000 have to live in the sight of a Holy God without a mediator.

“graves were opened, and those who had died in faith under the third angel’s message, keeping the Sabbath, came forth from their dusty beds, glorified, to hear the covenant of peace that God was to make with those who had kept His law.” Ellen G.

“By his obedience to all the commandments of God, Christ wrought out a redemption for man. This was not done by going out of himself to another, but by taking humanity into himself. Thus Christ gave to humanity an existence out of himself. To bring humanity into Christ, to bring the fallen race into oneness with divinity, is the work of redemption. Christ took human nature that men might be one with him as he is one with the Father, that God may love man as he loves his only begotten Son, that men may be partakers of the divine nature, and be complete in him. The Holy Spirit, which proceeds from the only begotten Son of God, binds the human agent, body, soul, and spirit, to the perfect, divine-human nature of Christ. This union is represented by the union of the vine and the branches. Finite man is united to the manhood of Christ. Through faith human nature is assimilated with Christ’s nature. We are made one with God in Christ.” –{THE REVIEW AND HERALD, April 5, 1906}
