Trim your lamps so you can do as declared in 1Peter 3:15
This page is not meant to bash or attack anyone. It is designed to help those being approached by some uneducated preachers and some actual wolves preaching false doctrine. Being the last days as it is, the obedient remnant have been under attack more than usual lately. So, after prayer, the Lord revealed to me an effective way for us to fight this holy war we find ourselves in. All too often we find that some well meaning souls have entered our church to be closer to Christ and find like-minded brethren. Quite often some of these well meaning souls actually become members and then we all gather as one to continue the work of the Lord day by day. But once in a while, and lately this has been happening more and more, we find some that join us for worship either "change" their way of thinking once they have made a few friends, and then start an email campaign to gather souls with them in heresy, or some of those coming into our gathering aren't really "well meaning souls" but infiltrators that come into the church from the government funded churches with premeditated plans to infiltrate and split up the prophesied remnant church using false doctrine. And some, bless their hearts, come in with good intentions but are lured off the path by those outside the church will bad intentions, but the eyes of the babes are blurred and hearts caught off guard when their "friends" tug on their hearts strings and pull them away. Praise the Lord such as these always return to the fold after obedient study and prayer. My hope is that all that are as the babes in Christ that only seek to please the Lord and as they learn day by day with hands on experience, they come to a realization of the truth and grow closer to Christ in their trials. For their hearts are pure and their Father has promised to "wink" when they misunderstand. (See Acts 17:30 & 1 Timothy 1:13) But those that come in with an agenda based in the flesh and not towards the heart of God, may the Lord have mercy on their precious souls.
This page has links to many studies, videos and tracts that will help the remnant soldiers of our King Jesus fight this holy war more effectively as well as have the means by which to trim their lamps. So again, this page is not designed to attack, bash or ridicule. As obedient Christians we have duty to warn our brothers and sisters trapped in or lured to the fallen churches that the men they believe to be ordained of God are not only denying their duty, they are denying the God that ordained them by preaching things God never asked them to preach. It says in Ephesians 5:11 that we are to "have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." Reproving them using your Bible lets the obedient children of God see the danger more clearly. I hope and pray this work finds you blessed.
IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT "The same danger exists today among the people who profess to be the depositaries of Godís law. They are too apt to flatter themselves that the regard in which they hold the commandments will preserve them from the power of divine justice. They refuse to be reproved for evil, and charge Godís servants with being too zealous in putting sin out of the camp. A sin-hating God calls upon those who profess to keep His law to depart from all iniquity. Neglect to repent and obey His word will bring as serious consequences upon Godís people today as did the same sin upon ancient Israel. There is a limit beyond which He will no longer delay His judgments." -Testimonies for the Church 4:166, 167.

COMBAT PAGAN FESTIVALS
Kneeling in prayer before the Congregation
Many pastors and this includes most in the SDA church stand in prayer before the people. Standing in prayer is a sign of a Roman who mocks the Lord. Both Scripture and SOP declares we must be on our knees when seeking the Lord in prayer. Yes, itís understood we can pray as we walk down a lane in the woods.. driving in our cars.. or even sitting in school before taking a test. But when we stand as pastors who are called to lead by example, and worse yet it is Sabbath day when we are delivering a sermon, we MUST be on our knees! I post this because of MANY SDA leaders now do as the Pagans and all the Vatican churches do. They stand in prayer mocking the Lord!
kneeled in prayer
2 Chronicles 6:13, "For Solomon had made a brasen scaffold, of five cubits long, and five cubits broad, and three cubits high, and had set it in the midst of the court: and upon it he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven,"
kneeled in prayer
Daniel 6:10, "Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime."
kneeled before Jesus
Mark 10:17, "And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?"

Luke 22:41, "And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,"

kneeled in prayer
Acts 20:36, "And when he had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all."
Yet it is a rare thing to see SDA ministers kneeling in prayer? Two of many SOP references on this isÖ
"One who has been educated for about five years in Battle Creek was asked to lead in prayer before Sister White should speak to the people. But as I beheld him standing upright upon his feet while his lips were about to open in prayer to God, my soul was stirred within me to give him an open rebuke. Calling him by name, I said, ďGet down upon your knees.Ē This is the proper position always." -Notebook Leaflets from the Elmshaven Library, vol. 1, Page 119
"Both in public and in private worship, it is our privilege to bow on our knees before the Lord when we offer our petitions to Him. Jesus, our example, "kneeled down, and prayed." [LUKE 22:41.] Of His disciples it is recorded that they, too, "kneeled down, and prayed." [ACTS 9:40; 20:36, 21:5.] Paul declared, "I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." [EPH. 3:14.] In confessing before God the sins of Israel, Ezra knelt. [SEE EZRA 9:5.] Daniel "kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God." [DAN. 6:10.]
True reverence for God is inspired by a sense of His infinite greatness and a realization of His presence. With this sense of the Unseen, every heart should be deeply impressed. The hour and place of prayer are sacred, because God is there; and as reverence is manifested in attitude and demeanor, the feeling that inspires it will be deepened. "Holy and reverend is His name," [PS. 111:9.] the psalmist declares. Angels, when they speak that name, veil their faces. With what reverence, then, should we, who are fallen and sinful, take it upon our lips! -Gospel Workers, page 178.2,3
