Has Rome taken the SDA church?
Before sharing I would like to add that since this Newsletter is directed to our Seventh day Adventist (SDA) brethren I will be quoting quite a bit from the writings of Ellen G. White. For those of you that don’t know who this woman is, I strongly suggest stopping by my “Who is Ellen G. White” page on the website for a quick summary of facts that may surprise you.
Christian greetings in these last days of life on earth. Lately I have realized many like minded brethren have been asking the question,”is the Seventh day Adventist (SDA) church a Christian church, or is it Babylon like all the rest?” Since I am known by some to expose antichrist and his fruits wherever he rears his ugly head, this may be why some have thought to ask me to comment. I usually avoid exposing in detail other denominations simply because all of them spin off of Rome anyway. I usually concentrate on the mother of harlots so that when her fruits are put in the light of day, others outside her walls can see her rotted doctrines within their own church walls. However, the SDA church is a unique case. They were never actually “spun off” from Rome. Instead they allowed Rome to take them over.
Something as important as the SDA church being infiltrated, taken over, re-organized, and finally destroyed by Rome has to be a prophetic event. Seeing how our Lord has guided us ever step of the way throughout history, I am one to believe He would'nt drop the ball at such an time as this? I am sure Satan would hope to think so. Or at least get us to think that way.
What I am about to share can be backed by the Word of God completely, so I would ask those that may not agree with me to at least study this out before ignoring me. Some of you may be offended simply because you have always been taught by SDA preachers that you are to stay with the church no matter how bad the apostasy gets. In fact, most SDA's are taught Ellen White stated that the SDA church should never be called Babylon and all SDA's should stand firm in the church. Sadly, when you put her words back in context, and especially when you look into the Word of God, a book they agree she would never contradict, you see they are being lead astray.
Were you aware the same methods were used by the Jewish leaders thousands of years ago when probation closed on the Synagogues? Were you also aware this is what the Vatican leaders said when Luther stepped out and pointed the people back to Christ? And were you also aware this is what the Protestant leaders said when their brethren stepped out to form the SDA church so long ago? Sadly, and prophetically “on time” I might add, this is exactly what the SDA leaders are saying right now as the believers are stepping out to “...follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. " –Revelation 14:4
Jesus said the gates of Hell would never prevail against His church. (Matthew 16:18) Problem is most people look at "church" as a building, or a "name" when in fact it's nothing more then the people in it. In fact the name itself has nothing to do with the salvation of souls. Christ’s followers must be found spending their time, effort, and money on spreading the Three Angels’ Messages, not in the courts of the land fighting for a name of a church which they have chosen to separate from. Brethren, let us be about our work for God in spreading His truth, and not be sidetracked by Satan into spending our time, effort, and money in trying to cling to an idol. (the NAME) There is no valid Biblical reason why God would desire any of His separated people to defend their right and waste precious time and money to call themselves "Seventh-day Adventist." I would like ask those that believe it is time to leave the SDA church, and at the same time feel we must "keep the name" Seventh-day Adventist, to respond to the following Scripture and SOP facts.
"God calls upon this church to make a change. They had a name to live, but their works were destitute of the love of Jesus. Oh, how many have fallen because they trusted in their profession for salvation! How many are lost by their effort to keep up a name! If one has the reputation of being a successful evangelist, a gifted preacher, a man of prayer, a man of faith, a man of special devotion, there is positive danger that he will make shipwreck of faith when tried by the little tests that God suffers to come. Often his great effort will be to maintain his reputation." -7BC: p. 958
"Not by its name, but by its fruit, is the value of a tree determined. If the fruit is worthless, the name cannot save the tree from destruction." DA p.107
"We are not saved as a sect; no
denominational name has any virtue to bring us into favor with God. We
are saved individually as believers in the Lord Jesus
All throughout the history of the people of God we see one repetitive and blessed characteristic. It has been noted quite graphically through time that it is not just a characteristic, however, but more of a necessity. Of course I speak of the heart prodding need to "come out of her my people" to better follow the Lord wherever He may lead.
If we investigate the
way the Father led His people out of
"I wish to emphasize the fact, that the churches to which John was told to send the instruction given him represent all the churches in our world, and that this revelation to him is to be studied and believed and preached by the Seventh_day Adventist Church today. Christ came personally to John to tell him ‘the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.’ (Rev. 1:11) And He said unto him, ‘What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches.’ (Rev. 1:19) The light was not to be hidden under a bushel.
"In the revelation that Christ gave are linked together in a chain of truth the important messages of warning that are to be given to the world before Christ’s second coming. The last message of mercy is to be proclaimed where it has never yet been heard. The workers are to labor with such self_denial, such self_sacrifice, that the message will be borne to those who have not heard it." 1MR 372.
The message to the seven churches is, without question, to be proclaimed throughout the ages. Today, being in the time of the last church, we are called to embrace all the messages due to the urgency of the times we live in. It is common knowledge that the devil knows he has but a short time, so he is, in fact, going about the world devouring anyone he can. Never before in the history of the church have we seen such an orchestrated attack on God’s people. Every lesson the enemy has learned in studying the weaknesses of God’s people over the last 6000 years is now being used against us. We are about to experience a time of trouble like no other. Of this much we are sure.
The seven prophetic periods spoken of in Revelation chapters two and three indicate what it would take for the Holy Spirit to hone the characters of those "called out ones" into that perfection that was prophesied. This remnant glorifies the Father like no other body of believers can. This is that peculiar people, the "remnant of her seed," (Revelation 12:17) that receive the seal of the Living God. This is why so many strange laws are being lobbied and passed today. We are a major threat to Satan and he knows it!
The movements of God’s people during the time of the seven churches are, of course, those called out of Babylon to "follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth." (Revelation 14:4) These movements have been realized by faithful students of the Scriptures to be the children of God doing as His perfect will would have them do. Their movements are seen as yet another way to prove Christ Lord and His Truth supreme. For without His hand involved, they would never take a single step in the first place. Where there is no step, there is no movement.
"From age to age Christ had delivered His treasures to the church, and from one generation to another His faithful servants have improved the talents lent them. The gifts that eighteen hundred years ago He placed in the hands of His chosen ministers, the twelve apostles, have descended to His workers in this age. Yet how few of us realize our high privileges, and our true position as ministers of His grace." -5MR 358
Our day is to be no exception. The Lord plainly stated "I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." (Matthew 28:20) He is with us! We mustn’t put a blind eye, or a cold shoulder to the calling we feel pulling at our very souls. To do so would be a lie to our hearts. Following the Lamb wherever He goes means just that!
"The world is preparing for the last great conflict, nation rising against nation. The vast majority of human beings are taking their stand against God. But in every age the Lord Jesus has had His witnesses—a remnant who trusted in the Word of God. And today, in every place, there are those who hold communion with God. A vital undercurrent of influence is leading them to the light, and when the question comes to them, ‘Who is on the Lord’s side?’ they will take their position for Him. Their characters have been moulded after the divine similitude, because they have read and practised the teachings of His Word." -ST 11/23/04.
Before the seven churches came to be, salvation was of the Jews, in fact, this was the church of God. The Jewish people were called to proclaim the Gospel of Truth to all the people of Earth. However, as history proves they did the exact opposite. With that in mind, the Lord had to step in and do something wonderful. He had to call a people that would do the work! Directly after the Lord saw the Jewish nation refused to do His work, He called upon others. In Revelation we see the Lord instructing these churches. In History we see four movements of these churches He has personally directed.
In a bit more detail we see…
Christian Movement - Disciples proclaim truth to the world in the most blessed missionary effort known to man. -Acts 13:46; 17:6; 18:6
3. Pergamos (313_538 A.D.) "...and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith." -Revelation 2:13,17
4. Thyatira (538_1517 A.D.) "...as many as have not this doctrine... none other burden." -Revelation 2:24-26
Protestant Movement - The Protestant Reformation and its many martyrs. -Revelation 7:13-17
Adventist Movement - The great awakening which occurred around the world as the prophecy of the 2300 days of Daniel 8:14 was preached showing the judgment hour had come. -Revelation 10:1-11; 14:6-8 (see Note 2)
Seventh_day Remnant Movement - "Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus." -Revelation 14:10-12,17; 15:2,3
"God has a church upon the earth, who are His
chosen people, who keep His commandments. He is leading, not stray offshoots,
not one here and one there, but a people."
The Lord has always had a church on earth. The past movements of His Christian church are evidence of the fruit that speaks boldly of the virgin hearts His remnant children have had throughout the ages. Only "whatsoever saith the Lord" can tug at the heart strings of His people. Even when those around them seek after the flesh, their only recourse is to go wherever the Lamb leads. Even if this means to forsake family and friends, the remnant must walk with the Lord and do as they are created to do. The elect can do nothing else.
"In the rejection of the ways of God for the
ways of men, the downfall of
a nation the children of
"While there are different degrees of development and different manifestations of His power to meet the wants of men in the different ages, God’s work in all time is the same. The Teacher is the same. God’s character and His plan are the same. With Him ‘is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.’ (James 1:17)
"The experiences of
The loving advice our Lord gives to the Laodicean church plainly speaks of nothing short of true repentance for those trapped in this blindness of mind. No different than the Jewish leaders of Christ’s day, we see the prideful leaders of the Adventist church today rejecting blunt counsel so clearly laid out in the Words of our Lord. Over the years the Lord has sent many of His faithful children to warn those He cares for. But all the warnings have been ignored by most. Even when undeniable facts have been brought before their eyes, they have turned away choosing to ignore rather then act. Probation has most certainly closed on this church, just as probation closed on the Jews as a nation so long ago and the Protestant churches in 1844. Like then it has closed on the church itself and not on the dear people within it.
When the 490 year prophecy was fulfilled, the Lord called a people out of error and started the Christian movement with those called out ones. Paul actually went into those prophetically closed churches to bring them out. Today, the Lord is doing the very same thing. His children will only go withersoever the Lamb leadeth, and as we are all aware, He would never lead them to embrace open apostasy. To believe He would, is to go directly against His written Word.

If your church leaders are using Ellen White to stay IN apostasy, how do they explain these verses that clearly say to come OUT of apostasy?

"The world must not be introduced into the church. And married to the church, forming a bond of unity. Through this means the church will become indeed corrupt and as stated in Revelation, a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.." TM 265
The state of the
Seventh_day Adventist church today is most assuredly
It is plainly prophesied that the dragon will concentrate his attack and make war on the remnant of her seed, and not the seed itself. Originally the seed of the woman, the main church, held to the law and understood prophecy well enough to anger the dragon. But eventually she allowed his anger to wear her down which in turn caused her to bow to him. It is the remnant of her seed that now causes him to go to war, for they will never bow. The Seventh day Remnant is most assuredly to be those that will overcome.
"Although the law of God will be almost
universally made void in the world, there will be a remnant of the righteous
that will be obedient to God’s requirements. The wrath of the dragon will be
directed against the loyal servants of Heaven. Says the prophet, ‘The dragon
was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed,
which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.’
(Rev. 12:17) We can see from this scripture that it is not the true
The dragon went to make war with the remnant of her seed.
Even today, those of us that share truth out of genuine concern for those falling into apostasy have seen all sorts of evil attributed to our loving acts. I am no stranger to these attacks as many of you know. Sister White declared this so perfectly when she said…
"Ahab regarded Elijah as his enemy because the prophet was faithful to rebuke the king’s secret iniquities. So today the servant of Christ, the reprover of sin, meets with scorn and rebuffs." -3SP 12; DA 589
As we know by studying prophecy, Rome’s ecumenical movement we see so prevalent in today’s world, will eventually gather all of the churches of the world back into her court to encamp against the faithful remnant Revelation 12:17 speaks of. We see this in the movements of the Papacy via the one world church, and we see the Protestant Christian Coalition acting in concert with Rome to the same end right here in the United States. Soon the day will come when we will see what all the Christians of old saw during times of great persecution. All those that hate truth will surround the globally hated children of the remnant.
It is time to approach our dear brothers and sisters in the Lord to try and share with them the urgency of our day before it is too late for them. Sad thing is, this is not an easy row to hoe. Satan has already convinced many of them with the same method of confusion he has used in the past. Many are now embracing the idea that the Seventh day Adventist church will go through to the end regardless of the fact that there is so much evidence stacked against it exposing it as a sister to fallen Babylon. Truth is plain here. If they embrace the lies, how can they be for the Truth? Yet, some will allow open sin to flourish for what they see as the "greater good." This confusion alone should be all that is needed to realize that this is yet another sign proclaiming that the Lord’s hand is indeed involved in this final Seventh day Remnant movement.
SEPARATION CALLED HERESY
Looking to the Word one can see the believers faithfully following their Lord to do the work He called them to do. At first we had the Jewish church that had been chosen by the Father to proclaim His Truth to the World. But error was introduced and they were eventually found unworthy of everlasting life and unable to proclaim truth. So the Lord’s people came out from among them to labor for the Lord and start the Christian movement. Next we see the church was again infiltrated by error when Roman Catholicism allowed the mixture of Paganism with Christianity to flourish. Again the Lord’s people came out of error laboring in the Protestant Reformation. Sadly, once again error was embraced, and the voice of our Lord was heard by His faithful Adventist people to come out of Babylon to labor for Him in the ninth hour. Of course, history recorded this as the Seventh day Advent movement. Finally, today in the eleventh hour, we see the Seventh day Adventist church is now boldly embracing error as truth. So the Lord is once again proclaiming to His faithful Remnant to come out from among them and do the work that is so urgent for our day.
Can you see the prophetic certainty of these events? Is this not illustrated perfectly in the parable of the workers in the vineyard told by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself? Is this not an amazing prophetic fulfillment in our lifetime?
"For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive." –Matthew 20:1-7
Early in the morning = Jewish nation
hour = Christians
The truth is, the true believers separated themselves from the Synagogue of the Jewish nation after they realized the Lord was no longer among such apostasy. They also stepped away from the Paganism of Roman Catholicism when it became apparent. They even stepped out of Protestant error as well and became Seventh day Adventists. And now we see the faithful Remnant once again going in the only true direction a child of God can go. The Seventh day Adventist church has asked Jesus Christ to leave and we the Remnant can do nothing less then follow the Lamb! What shocks me is the Seventh day Adventist people have been known to understand prophecy. Yet this one prophecy of Matthew 20:1-7, that’s confirmed in Revelation is totally missed by them. The dragon is no longer angry at that woman! (SDA church) because he has her now! This is why he is making was with the Remnant of her seed (SDR church) instead!
We can only be led by the Lamb of God. We are not to be defiled by these women, which are in fact the apostate churches that Revelation 14:4 speaks of. The Lord’s elect cannot be deceived. We must follow wherever He leads! We do so only because we are His sheep and we most assuredly hear His voice. When the leaders of the church openly embrace error and refuse every warning to repent, the remnant can stand no longer with them. (Titus 3:10) Especially after so much truth has been given her and so much has been done to try and make known to them the apostasy they not only embrace, but encourage.
Of those who boast of their light and
yet fail to walk in it Christ says, "But I say unto you, It shall be more
Are we not a people who understand both biblical and prophetic jurisprudence? Are we not moved deep within to seek refuge where we can worship in truth as our hearts so deeply desire? The elect cannot stand with error, no more than Satan can stand in truth. It is literally and totally impossible. Not even loved ones can convince us to ignore our Lord!
Keep in mind. His children truly hear His voice. They are definitely coming out. This is not something anyone needs to be convinced of anymore. A mass exodus is being realized around the world. For those of us with global ministries, this truth is repeated daily before our eyes by people from all walks of life. People both inside and outside the church are seeing this clearly.
Those for or against separation agree, there is another movement being seen today! That much is clear. As I said earlier, the Lord’s hand is apparent here. For without His hand involved, God’s followers would never take a single step out of the fallen church. Where there is no step, there is no movement. And there is most assuredly a movement of God’s people this very day.
A few years ago I made a public inquiry regarding "a mass exodus" out of the Seventh day Adventist church. I wanted to know if anyone else was seeing it. In a comparatively short time, I received a most astonishing response from emails, phone calls, and letters from all around the world expressing an agreement on this fact, as well as seeking counsel on what to do next. In fact I am still, to this day, getting emails on this every week! People from all over the world are seeking those they can trust to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth with. They are hungry for the truth we share. They tell me time and time again it is not being proclaimed from the SDA pulpits anymore. Strangely enough, some dear SDA people were completely shocked when they discovered basic SDA doctrines they never knew about! They never knew because their pastors stopped teaching them. That fact alone caused them to leave that church. No longer are the sheep being fed in these churches. They have left, for there is no place for them in these churches any longer. It is obvious the Lord’s voice is being heard. His children are responding to His call to "come out of her my people."
