What Did The Early Seventh Day Adventist Pioneers Believe Concerning The 144,000? 1 Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

There are ONLY a few, 144,000, who do not reject the OLD SDA Protestant BELIEFS, the 3 Angel's messages (Rev 14:6-12).

 
Psalm 45:13
The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.

Psalm 45:14
She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.

Exodus 39:2
And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

Exodus 39:3
And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with cunning work.

Song of Solomon 7:1
How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman.

Ezekiel 16:13
Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.

1 Samuel 10:1
Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured it upon his head, and kissed him, and said, Is it not because the LORD hath anointed thee to be captain over his inheritance?

1 Kings 4:21
And Solomon reigned over all kingdoms from the river unto the land of the Philistines, and unto the border of Egypt: they brought presents, and served Solomon all the days of his life.

"Especially IN THE CLOSING WORK FOR THE CHURCH, in the sealing time of the one hundred and forty-four thousand who are to stand without fault before the throne of God, will they feel most deeply [be afflicted by] the wrongs of God's professed people. This is forcibly set forth by the prophet's illustration of the LAST WORK under the figure of the men each having a slaughter weapon in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side. 'And the Lord [God] said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof." E.G. White, Testimonies, Vol. 3, 266-7.

Conduct Befitting the Bride of a KingThe church is the bride, the Lamb's wife. She should keep herself pure, sanctified, holy. Never should she indulge in any foolishness; for she is the bride of a King. Yet she does not realize her exalted position. If she understood this, she would be all-glorious within (Letter 177, 1901).

Psalm 45:13
The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.

Psalm 45:14
She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.

Exodus 39:2

Exodus 39:3
And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with cunning work.

Song of Solomon 7:1
How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman.

Ezekiel 16:13
Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.

1 Samuel 10:1

1 Kings 4:21
And Solomon reigned over all kingdoms from the river unto the land of the Philistines, and unto the border of Egypt: they brought presents, and served Solomon all the days of his life.

If the church (144,000 and guests of the wedding feast) will put on the robe of Christ’s righteousness, withdrawing from all allegiance with the world, there is before her the dawn of a bright and glorious day. God’s promise to her will stand fast forever. He will make her an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.... When the message of God meets with opposition, He gives it additional force, that it may exert greater influence. Endowed with divine energy, it will cut its way through the strongest barriers and triumph over every obstacle.—The Acts of the Apostles, 599-601. RC 225.7







If you will seek the Lord and be converted every day; if you will of your own spiritual choice be free and joyous in God; if with gladsome consent of heart to His gracious call you come wearing the yoke of Christ,— the yoke of obedience and service,—all your murmurings will be stilled, all your difficulties will be removed, all the perplexing problems that now confront you will be solved

"Would all professed Christians use their investigative powers to see what evils needed to be corrected in themselves, instead of talking of others' wrongs, there would be a more healthy condition in the church today. Some will be honest when it costs nothing; but when policy will pay besthonesty is forgotten. Honesty and policy will not work together in the same mind. In time, either policy will be expelled, and truth and honesty reign supreme, or, if policy is cherished, honesty will be forgotten. They are never in agreement; they have nothing in common. One is the prophet of Baal, the other is the true prophet of God. When the Lord makes up His jewels, the true, the frank, the honest, will be looked upon with pleasure. Angels are employed in making crowns for such ones, and upon these star-gemmed crowns will be reflected, with splendor, the light (truth/old SDA landmarks=3 angel's messages=Rev 14:6-12) which radiates from the throne of God (144,000)" {CCh 179.1}.

The Throne of God are the 144,000. The Throne of David. To be possessed by the Spirit of Christ - is for Christ to reign in our thoughts, words and actions. To be possessed by the LIVING law of God is the Holy Spirit of Christ in us. 

The crown of victory - crowned with the atonement of Christ because we go by faith into the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary to present the precious promises of God found in the Bible by faith. We can do this in our mind anywhere. Lift your face, thoughts, heavenward, look to the New Jerusalem which is in Heaven, like Daniel, at least 3 times a day, morning, noon and night and present before the Throne of God His own words, call Him into remembrance of His own words that He sent His own Son down to earth to speak/give to us to use to claim to become perfect, righteous in Him. 

PRAYER IS THE BREATH OF THE SOUL. 

We don't want to suffocate our own SOUL, do we? Then we need to pray, fervently, earnestly for ourselves and others. To intercede on their behalf using the exceedingly great and precious Bible verse promises! 

Claiming Bible Promises GIVES you MIRACLES in YOUR LIFE! It's like picking leaves off the Tree of Life! 

Revelation 22:2 "and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations (people)"! Claiming Bible verse promises heals us from sin! See 2 Peter 1:4:

That we might become members of the heavenly family, He became a member of the earthly family.—The Desire of Ages, 638 (1898).

Better than a title to the noblest palace on earth is a title to the mansions our Lord has gone to prepare.  And better than all the words of earthly praise, will be the Saviour's words to His faithful servants, “Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”—Christ's Object Lessons, 374 (1900).

Claim Luke 21:15 and see James 3:2, 2 Peter 1:4, Proverbs 18:4, Matthew 12:37

Who are the laodicean group? Let's let them answer for themselves here:

“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.)

"When the reformers preached the word of God, they had no thought of separating themselves from the established church; but the religious leaders would not tolerate the light (Isaiah 9:16), and those that bore it were forced to seek another class, who were longing for the truth. In our day few of the professed followers of the Reformers are actuated by their spirit. Few are listening for the voice of God, and ready to accept truth in whatever guise it may be presented. Often those who follow in the steps of the Reformers are forced to turn away from the churches they love, in order to declare the plain teaching of the word of God. And many times those who are seeking for light are by the same teaching obliged to leave the church of their fathers, that they may render obedience" DA 232.2.

On the sea of glass the 144,000 stood in a perfect square. Some of them had very bright crowns, others not so bright. Some crowns appeared heavy with stars, while others had but few. All were perfectly satisfied with their crowns.—Early Writings, 16, 17 (1851).


The crown of life will be bright or dim, will glitter with many stars, or be lighted by few gems, in accordance with our own course of action.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 6:1105 (1895).


There will be no one saved in heaven with a starless crown. If you enter, there will be some soul in the courts of glory that has found an entrance there through your instrumentality.—The Signs of the Times, June 6, 1892.


Before entering the city of God, the Saviour bestows upon His followers the emblems of victory, and invests them with the insignia of their royal state. The glittering ranks are drawn up in the form of a hollow square about their King.... Upon the heads of the overcomers, Jesus with His own right hand places the crown of glory.... In every hand are placed the victor's palm and the shining harp. Then, as the commanding angels strike the note, every hand sweeps the harp strings with skillful touch, awaking sweet music in rich, melodious strains.... Before the ransomed throng is the holy city. Jesus opens wide the pearly gates, and the nations that have kept the truth (old landmarks) enter in.—The Great Controversy, 645, 646 (1911).


"Some will be honest when it costs nothing; but when policy will pay besthonesty is forgotten. Honesty and policy will not work together in the same mind. In time, either policy will be expelled, and truth and honesty reign supreme, or, if policy is cherished, honesty will be forgotten. They are never in agreement; they have nothing in common. One is the prophet of Baal, the other is the true prophet of God" CCh 179.1.

Say: “Lord, take my heart; for I cannot give it. It is Thy property. Keep it pure, for I cannot keep it for Thee. Save me in spite of myself, my weak, unchristlike self. Mold me, fashion me, raise me into a pure and holy atmosphere, where the rich current of Thy love can flow through my soul" Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 159.3.

Say: “Lord, help me to do my best. Teach me how to do better work. Give me energy and cheerfulness. Help me to bring into my service the loving ministry of the Saviour” The Ministry of Healing, p. 474.

Say: “Take me, O 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.

"Character is power. The silent witness of a true, unselfish, godly life carries an almost irresistible influence. By revealing in our own life the character of Christ we cooperate with Him in the work of saving souls. It is only by revealing in our life His character that we can cooperate with Him. And the wider the sphere of our influence, the more good we may do. When those who profess to serve God follow Christ’s example, practicing the principles of the law in their daily life; when every act bears witness that they love God supremely and their neighbor as themselves, then will the church have power to move the world....

We know not what results a day, an hour, or a moment may determine, and never should we begin the day without committing our ways to our heavenly Father.... When unconsciously we are in danger of exerting a wrong influence, the angels will be by our side, prompting us to a better course, choosing our words for us, and influencing our actions. Thus our influence may be a silent, unconscious, but mighty power in drawing others to Christ and the heavenly world"—Christ’s Object Lessons, 340-342.

“Say, I come to present myself to God in the name of him who has died for me. I give my heart to Jesus, and I desire his blessing and his Spirit;" and the power (character=thoughts and feelings) of God will come upon you” ST FEB. 22, 1892.

"Say, I have done as Thou hast said. I present Thy Promise, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you"  Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 147.2.

  • Romans 4:17 - 22: - “calleth those things which be not as though they were." By faithAbraham obeyed (a verb of action on Abraham’s part) God’s call to leave his idolatrous family and go to a land unseen and unknown to him. 

  • When WE LEARN THE POWER OF HIS WORD/promises - we will obey and trust God completely. We will obey fully because KNOWING that obedience to God gives us safety in these last days. Matthew 10:28, Luke 12:4

“The Savior's life on earth was a life of communion with nature and with GodIn this communion He revealed for us the secret 
of a life of power. {Ministry of Healing, 51.1} 

"As a man He supplicated the throne of God, till His humanity was charged with a Heavenly current that should connect humanity with divinity. Through continual communion He received life from God that he might impart life to the world. His experience is to be ours."  DA 363

"It is those who, with love for God and their fellow men, are striving to help others, that become established, strengthened, settled, in the truth." The true Christian ChS 106.Testimonies for the Church Volume 5, p. 393.2

"The strongest man is he, who, while sensitive to abusewill yet restrain passion and forgive his enemies." MYP 412.1

 For Such A Time as This! It's our faith that activates the power of God.
Esther 4:14 (NIV) "And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” 

Conduct Befitting the Bride of a KingThe church (triumphant are the 144,000 those who live and give the 3 Angel's messages found in Rev 14:6-12 - namely the 3rd Angel's message which is NOW. From 1845 until probation closes upon the world when Turkey secedes from the European Union) is the bride, the Lamb's wife. She should keep herself pure, sanctified, holy. Never should she indulge in any foolishness; for she is the bride of a King. Yet she does not realize her exalted position. If she understood this, she would be all-glorious within (Letter 177, 1901).

Psalm 45:13
The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.

Psalm 45:14
She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.

Ezekiel 16:10
I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.

Believing that God had prepared her for this very moment in history—"for such a time as this"—as a vessel of deliverance for her people, Esther urged all of the Jews in the city to fast and pray for her. She was about to risk her life to request an audience with the king. (We are about to risk our lives - Sunday law - for an audience with the King - the Most High God and His Son)

Although the Jews had been sentenced to death by King Xerxes' original decree, through Queen Esther's courageous intervention and willingness to face death, the people's lives were spared. What about you? Do you have the courage of Queen Esther? If faced with the same decision of destiny would you risk your life "for such at time as this?"

Even as Esther was made Queen "for such a time as this", the 144,000 are made Queen "for such a time as this"...the last message for this end time warning given to save God's people with a special message. This message was given to God's chosen people starting around 1844 time frame until Christ returns with a shout. (Three angels message/7th day Sabbath and the truth about God and His Son/special diet, understanding of sanctuary message etc.) Read more about this and what the TWO DAYS stand for here.

I believe Queen Vashti represents the modern SDA church who refuses to "show off" preach the beautiful truths that were given to her in 1844 time framej. Today the modern 501c3 SDA church has REJECTED the PROTESTANT 3 Angel's messages in favor of the commandments and traditions of men. Since she rejected and refused the King's command, she was replaced by the King and her job given to another (Queen Esther represents the 144,000) willing to obey do the job. Even the replacement will be replaced if they refuse to obey God: Esther 4:14 "For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" (ESV)


In the last solemn work few great men will be engaged. . . . God will work a work in our day that but few anticipate. He will raise up and exalt among us those who are taught rather by the unction of His Spirit than by the outward training of scientific institutions. These facilities are not to be despised or condemned; they are ordained of God, but they can furnish only the exterior qualifications. God will manifest that He is not dependent on learned, self-important mortals.--5T 80, 82 (1882).

And when He roars from His Majestic Throne (144,000) who can abide and evade His anger? 



The Throne of God IS the 144,000. The Throne of David. To be possessed by the Spirit of Christ - is for Christ to reign in our thoughts, words and actions. To be possessed by the LIVING law of God is the Holy Spirit of Christ in us.

"
Two days before the Passover, when Christ had for the last time departed from

 the temple, after denouncing the hypocrisy of the Jewish rulers, He again went out with His disciples to the Mount of Olives and seated Himself with them upon the grassy slope overlooking the city. Once more He gazed upon its walls, its towers, and its palaces. Once more He beheld the temple in its dazzling splendor, a diadem of beauty crowning the sacred mount.

A thousand years before, the psalmist had magnified God's favor to Israel in making her holy house His dwelling place: "In Salem also is His tabernacle, and His dwelling place in Zion." He "chose the tribe of Judah, the Mount Zion which He loved. And He built His sanctuary like high palaces." Psalms 76:2; 78:68, 69. The first temple had been erected during the most prosperous period of Israel's history. Vast stores of treasure for this purpose had been collected by King David, and the plans for its construction were made by divine inspiration. 1 Chronicles 28:12, 19. Solomon, the wisest of Israel's monarchs, had completed the work. This temple was the most magnificent building which the world ever saw. Yet the Lord had declared by the prophet Haggai, concerning the second temple: "The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former." "I will shake all nations, and the Desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory (character=hearing and doing the law of God in our daily little choices because we believe in the One God sent ...John 6:29), saith the Lord of hosts." Haggai 2:9, 7." http://www.whiteestate.org/books/gc/gc1.html

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father" John 14:12.

13And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.…

"To pray in Christ's name means much. It means that we are to accept His character (law of God), manifest His spirit, and work His works. The Saviour's promise is given on condition. If ye love Me, He says, keep My commandments. He saves men, not in sin, but from sin; and those who love Him will show their love by obedience" The Desire of Ages, 668.

"The king's [God's daughter=144,000] daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought goldPsalm 45:13.

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! 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.(about Hosea 6:2 see 2 Peter 3:8 a day for a year).

The word came to Noah, “Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before Me.” Noah obeyed and was saved. The message came to Lot, “Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city” (Genesis 7:1; 19:14). Lot placed himself under the guardianship of the heavenly messenger and was saved. So Christ’s disciples were given warning of the destruction of Jerusalem. Those who watched for the sign of the coming ruin, and fled from the city, escaped the destruction. So now we are given warning of Christ’s second coming and of the destruction to fall upon the world. Those who heed the warning will be saved.—The Desire of Ages, 634 (1898).

Third Angel's Message by Elder James White:

The word ALSO came to Abraham. Genesis 12:1-12 (KJV) 12 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee. Acts 7:3.

We have the same orders from God that Abraham had - to get us up into a Country that is flowing with milk and honey = the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary in the Third Heaven:
And when these things begin to come to pass (Oct 22, 1844), then LOOK UP (Most Holy Place by faith), and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28. We are to follow Christ (Rev 14:4) by FAITH into the Most Holy Place = into the Heavenly Holy City by keeping the Ten Commandments because Christ dwells in our Sacred Body TEMPLE - the true ARK of the Covenant. Our bodies are NOT our own for we are bought with a price per 1 Corinthians 6:19.

Exodus 33:9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.

Genesis 7:13 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;

Genesis 12:11 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon:

Genesis 19:23 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.

Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light [3 angel's messages: Oct 22, 1844 started] is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

Ephesians 5:14
So it is said: "Wake up, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."


Genesis 43:30 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there.

Exodus 35:15 And the incense altar, and his staves, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the door at the entering in of the tabernacle,

Exodus 40:35 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.

Psalm 87:3
Glorious things are spoken of you, O city [144k] of God. Selah.

Psalm 102:16
For the LORD has built up Zion [144k]; He has appeared in His glory.

Isaiah 2:5
Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

Isaiah 4:5
then the LORD will create over the whole area of Mount Zion [144k] and over her assemblies a cloud by day, even smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory [character=our thoughts and feelings] will be a canopy.
Early Writings page 251. We are told that Christ Marries the New Jerusalem while still in the Most Holy Place! And then He would descend to the earth in Kingly Power, and take to Himself the precious ones who had patiently waited His return. Christ descends FIRST upon His Bride starting Oct 22, 1844 upon those who by faith enter into Him (John 14:20) by thanksgiving and praise (Psalm 100:4) the perfume of incense that no one else could make on pain of death - the Song that no one else could learn (Most Holy Place) only those who live from Oct 22, 1844 onward:  “All who have died in faith under 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,' 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” –{The Spirit of Prophecy Volume 4, p. 454.1}. 

those who have fallen asleep, having the 
seal of God [SIGN, STAMP, MARK, SEAL, SIGNET RING], will have a special resurrection, and will be called forth to hear the covenant of peace, and to behold their Lord as He comes in the clouds of heaven” –{Stephen Haskell, 1905 SNH, SSP 252.1}.

Elder James White understood that those who are raised at the partial resurrection are not raised immortal. He wrote: “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 to make up that number. They are raised to mortal life shortly before Christ comes, and . . . are changed to immortality when Christ appears.” RH 9/23/1880.

"Soon we heard the voice of God like many waters [144k=voice of many waters=flowing from our belly: “He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of His belly shall flow rivers of living water” John 7:37-52; 8:12  
], which gave us the day and hour of Jesus’ coming. The living saints, 144,000 in numberknew and understood the voicewhile the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquakeEarly Writings, p. 14.1.

Now what is the belly for, what does the belly signify? There’s a place where it says their god is their belly. Many translations of the Bible use the word "belly" in Philippians 3:19: Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. (ESV) Matthew Henry's Method of Prayer connects this verse directly to eating truth - 

"And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body" Matthew 26:26.

Lord, grant that we may not feed ourselves without fear, Jude 1:12(KJV) that we may not make a god of our belly, Philippians 3:19(KJV)

Is the word "belly" here best interpreted specifically in the sense of overeating and gluttony? Or should it be viewed more generally, it is both, gluttony of food - even right foods - and along the lines of "desires of the flesh" or the like: "They may think themselves safe because they believe the truth, but indulgence of appetite or the lower passions, which will confuse judgment and destroy discrimination, will cause their fall.” Mar 163.6.

"Every needless transgression of the laws which God has established in our being, is virtually a violation of the law of God, and is as great a sin in the sight of Heaven as to break the Ten Commandments. Ignorance up­on this important subject, is sin; the light is now beaming upon us, and we are without excuse if we do not cherish the light, and become intelligent in regard to these things, which it is our highest earthly interest to under­stand."—Counsels on Health, p. 40.

"Excessive indulgence in eating, drinking, sleeping, or seeing, is sin."—Counsels on Diet and Foods, p. 141.

"Whoever violates moral obligations in the matter of eating and dressing prepares the way to violate the claims of God in regard to eter­nal interests. . . . If we enfeeble the body by self-gratification, by indulging the appetite, . . . we become enemies of God."—Testimonies, vol. 3, p. 63.


Matthew 14:19
And He instructed the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, He spoke a blessing. Then He broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples to the people.

the 12 baskets left over - the REMNANT - 12 Tribes (Rev 7) seed of Abraham - children of the PROMISE - those who are FILLED with the Holy Spirit of Christ, the Holy Law of God, those who are ARKS of the COVENANT, KINGS AND PRIESTS OF THE 3 Angel's messages - during the investigative Judgement - a bride is picked by God Himself for eternity from among the common people - those who keep and are restorers of His laws - the 7th day Sabbath - that by faith obeying it, His WORDS - we are made Holy, sanctified and cleansed from all sin through faith and obedience in the law of God which is Christ manifested to us - Christ was MADE the living law = the better way - Christ in us the Hope of Glory - Character = thoughts and feelings = DIVINE character, thoughts and feelings. Only those who partake of Christ's righteousness - having that close personal relationship with God and His Son through the Spirit of Christ our comforter dwelling in us continually - 1 John 3:9 so that the law of God lives in us so that we cannot sin - because we are entered into the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary in the Third Heaven 

For our conversation [citizenship/business] is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
That where I am there YE may be also - my sheep KNOW my voice and FOLLOW ME into the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary in the Third Heaven by Faith - just like Abraham gat himself up and went into a land that he did not know of -we are to get ourselves up into the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary in the Third Heaven by faith:

The Definition of Heaven by Sister White—Christ is the truth of all that we find in the Father. The definition of heaven is the presence of Christ (Manuscript 184, 1897). SDA Bible Commentary, vol. 7 (EGW), p. 989.9 (Ellen G. White)

Do not court singularity for the sake of being odd, but for the sake of avoiding sin and dishonor to God. And in this case we are not to mind even the multitude who are against us. “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil.” UL 315.3

Because the law of God is made void in our world, does it make it a virtue to transgress that law? It may appear to the world a very small matter for the Christian to be in harmony with the world by just the act of keeping Sunday for the Sabbath in the place of the seventh day, but God's Word says the seventh day is My holy day. The man of sin says, “I make a Sabbath for you and you must keep the first day of the week.” ... UL 315.4 (THE UPWARD LOOK, PAGE 315)

God has a church. It is not the great cathedral, neither is it the national establishment, neither is it the various denominations; it is the people who love God and keep His commandments. “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20). Where Christ is even among the humble few, this is Christ's church, for the presence of the High and Holy One who inhabiteth eternity can alone constitute a church. UL 315.5

Where two or three are present who love and obey the commandments of God, Jesus there presides, let it be in the desolate place of the earth, in the wilderness, in the city enclosed in prison walls. The glory of God has penetrated the prison walls, flooding with glorious beams of heavenly light the darkest dungeon. His saints may suffer, but their sufferings will, like the apostles of old, spread their faith and win souls to Christ and glorify His holy name. The bitterest opposition expressed by those who hate God's great moral standard of righteousness should not and will not shake the steadfast soul who trusts fully in God.... UL 315.6

They that will be doers of the word are building securely, and the tempest and storm of persecution will not shake their foundation, because their souls are rooted to the eternal Rock.—Letter 108, October 28, 1886, to her older sister and her husband who had not accepted the Sabbath truth. UL 315.7


Ephesians 2:19
Therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens of the saints and members of God's household,

1 Corinthians 1:7
Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly await the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:48
As was the earthly man, so also are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven.


Philippians 1:27
Nevertheless, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending side by side for the faith of the gospel,

Colossians 3:1
Therefore, since you have been raised with Christ, strive for the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.

Colossians 3:2
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Hebrews 12:22
Instead, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to myriads of angels

Romans 11:25, "I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in."

There are two Greek words in this verse that lend critical support to a proper understanding. The first is translated “full number”. It’s a nautical term that describes the pre-determined number of sailors necessary to operate a ship. Until the ship had its full number of crew members, it could not sail. This is why ship captains sometimes got unsuspecting  men drunk and kidnapped them late at night and then set sail immediately. And the second, translated “come in” is also a nautical term that described the ship’s arrival at its intended destination.

The Song of their experience!: “We are to REPEAT THE WORDS of the pioneers in our work, who knew what it cost to search for the truth as for hidden treasure, and who labored to lay the foundation of our work. The word given me is, Let that which these men have written in the past be reproduced”—Ellen White, Review and Herald, May 25, 1905.

The Song of their experience!!! The Song of the 144,000! The Song of the Bride of Christ, glad and happy, the wedding party procession going into the banquet feast, feasting upon the great light setup in the beginning of Adventism from 1830-1894!

The Song of their experience!: “Let the aged men who were pioneers in our work speak plainly, and let those who are dead speak also, by the reprinting of their articles in our periodicals”—Ellen White, Manuscript 62, 1905, cited in “The Integrity of the Sanctuary Message.”

The special/partial resurrection:
The special resurrection is different from that mentioned in Matt.27: 52 of those raised at His resurrection as the first fruits (Eph.4: 8). When you read Daniel 12: 2, you will see that there is a resurrection mentioned there in which some righteous and some wicked people are raised together. This shows that it is not the general resurrection of the righteous at the second coming. Nor is it the resurrection of the wicked after the thousand years. This is why it is called" special" because some of both parties are raised.. 

And Rev 1: 10 tells us that those who crucified him will be raised to see Him coming, when we know that such wicked will be raised after the thousand years.. “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.”

The special resurrection takes place shortly before the second coming: Notice the 3 groups raised in it:

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). 

1-" 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." (GC 637)

2-"They also which pierced Him" (Revelation 1:7), those that mocked and derided Christ's dying agonies (Zach.12: 10; see also John19: 34; PS 22: 16; Isa. 26: 19)

3-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 (See GC637)


"Jesus sent His angels to direct the minds of the disappointed ones to the most holy place, where He had gone to cleanse the sanctuary and make a special atonement for Israel. Jesus told the angels that all who found Him would understand the work which He was to perform. I saw that while Jesus was in the most holy place He would be married to the New Jerusalem; and after His work should be accomplished in the holiest, He would descend to the earth in kingly power and take to Himself the precious ones who had patiently waited His return" EW 251.1.
9, 10, 14 (Genesis 8:12 Peter 3:10). New Jerusalem (144,000) Preserved Amid Flames—When the flood of waters was at its height upon the earth, it had the appearance of a boundless lake of water. When God finally purifies the earth, it will appear like a boundless lake of fire. As God preserved the ark amid the commotions of the Flood, because it contained eight righteous persons, He will preserve the New Jerusalem, containing the faithful of all ages, from righteous Abel down to the last saint which lived. Although the whole earth, with the exception of that portion where the city rests, will be wrapped in a sea of liquid fire, yet the city is preserved as was the ark, by a miracle of Almighty power. It stands unharmed amid the devouring elements (Spiritual Gifts 3:87).

Isaiah 24:23
Then the moon will be abashed and the sun ashamed, For the LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem [new Jerusalem=144k], And His glory will be before His elders.

Isaiah 28:5
In that day the LORD of hosts will become a beautiful crown And a glorious diadem to the remnant of His people;

Matthew 4:16
the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death, a light has dawned."

Luke 2:32
a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to Your people Israel."

Like the King held the golden scepter out to Esther, so God holds out His golden scepter Jesus for us to touch by faith (2 Peter 1:4 trustingod.org) so we can live in the sight of a Holy God. Queen Vashti represents Adventists today, because like Queen Vashti, they refuse to show their beauty of the historical doctrines of SDA. Queen Esther represents the 144,000 which are symbolized by angels, the multitude of voices crying Matthew 25:6 "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him." This is the LAST warning message, the HARVEST message of the 4th angel which combines with the Image result for john 19:34third angels message. This message invites Adventists to COME OUT of apostasy and to JOIN the procession into the Sanctuary where the BLOOD of CHRIST COVERS OUR SINS! It is a wilderness procession which means primitive Godliness - wilderness means obscure/little known, because FEW find the way to Heaven. Few find the TRUE Jesus.(Most follow ANOTHER JESUS of 2 Cor 11:3-4.) The true WAY that few will find is Jesus Christ. Claiming His blood as your own. 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." See the many verses in the Bible calling us to join THE WAY that the 5 WISE VIRGINS JOINED: Acts 24:14, Acts 24:22, Acts 9:2

Listen to the sermon entitled "Come OUT of her, My People" by Charles Fitch here: Christ's personal coming to reign on the Throne of David...the "Throne of David" is the 144,000....that is given to Christ, espoused to Christ as virgins - meaning the speak a pure faith, the faith of Jesus which is the Word of God. God gave His words to Christ and Christ gave them to us - we in turn give them to the world which births Spiritual children of the truth.

Early Writings page 251. We are told that Christ Marries the New Jerusalem while still in the Most Holy Place! And then He would descend to the earth in Kingly Power, and take to Himself the precious ones who had patiently waited His return.

The ROBE of the BRIDE are the Three Angel's Messages:
Three Angel's messages consist of all the old early SDA pioneers doctrines and beliefs
Esther 2:9 "
And the maiden (144,000) pleased him, and she obtained kindness of him; and he speedily gave her her things for purification (3 angel's messages), with such things as belonged to her, and seven maidens (servants) [7 churches], which were meet to be given her, out of the king's house: and he preferred her and her maids unto the best place of the house of the women.

10 Esther had not shewed her people nor her kindred: for Mordecai had charged her that she should not shew it."


"I saw a little company {144,000} traveling a narrow pathway. All seemed to be firmly united, bound together by the truth, in bundles, or companies. Said the angel, 'The third angel (144,000) is binding, or sealing, them in bundles for the heavenly garner.' This little company looked careworn, as if they had passed through severe trials and conflicts." EW 88, 89 (published in 1854).

Therefore, it is clear, that this last sign will appear when the "Lord roars out of Zion," [144,000 = Loud Cry = 3rd Angel's Message] and shakes the heavens (our minds) and the earth (we are made of dust=earth). We believe that the signs in Rev.6:12-14, are the same as in Mat.24:29, and Mark,13:24,25. Then the shaking of the powers of the heavens, Mat.24:29, is the same as the heavens departing "as a scroll, when it is rolled together." Rev.6:14: for they both follow the falling of the stars.

"The church is the bride, the Lamb's wife. She should keep herself pure, sanctified, holy. Never should she indulge in any foolishness; for she is the bride of a King. 
Yet she does not realize her exalted position. If she understood this, she would be all-glorious within.
Letter 177, 1901, in 7 Bible Commentary. 986.

"Chariots of fire" represent the "144,000". There are at least four references to "chariots of fire" in the Bible. The first is 2 Kings 2:11 which mentions Elijah being taken away in a chariot of fire. The second is 2 Kings 6:17 which mentions Elisha being protected by many chariots of fire. The third is Isaiah 66:15 which says "the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire." Fourth, "The chariots of God are twenty thousand" (Ps. 68:17). See Ezekiel Chapter 1 and Chapter 10. The four wings in Ezekiel 1 and 10 represent the two charts, the 1843 and 1850 charts that each angel touches wingtip to wingtip. The other two wings that cover the body are the two Commandments, the Ten Commandments. The two marriage covenants: The two charts, the 1843 and 1850 charts and the Ten Commandments is the second marriage covenant.

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 worshipped at the saint's feet. Ellen G. Harmon, Portland, April 6, 1846. [Broadside 04-06-46 para. 08] p. 5, Para. 1, [1846MS].

The bells tinkling are those who are giving the trumpet that "certain sound" the old SDA landmarks, the 3 angel's messages. THEN Christ steps on the flaming cloud that came to where Jesus stood... the flaming cloud are the 144,000 that Jesus steps on.

As fundamental errors, we might class with this counterfeit sabbath other errors which Protestants have brought away from the Catholic church, such as sprinkling for baptism, the trinity, the consciousness of the dead and eternal life in misery. The mass who have held these fundamental errors, have doubtless done it ignorantly; but can it be supposed that the church of Christ will carry along with her these errors till the judgment scenes burst upon the world? We think not. “Here are they [in the period of a message given just before the Son of man takes his place upon the white cloud, Rev. 14:14 (
http://adventaudio.org/2011/04/10/come-out-of-her-my-people/)] that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.” This class, who live just prior to the second advent, will not be keeping the traditions of men, neither will they be holding fundamental errors relative to the plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. And as the true light shines out upon these subjects, and is rejected by the mass, then condemnation will come upon them. When the true Sabbath is set before men, and the claims of the fourth commandment are urged upon them, and they reject this holy institution of the God of heaven, and choose in its place an institution of the beast, it can then be said, in the fullest sense, that such worship the beast. The warning message of the third angel is given in reference to that period, when the mark of the beast will be received, instead of the seal of the living God. Solemn dreadful, swiftly approaching hour! (James White, September 12, 1854, Review & Herald, vol. 6, no. 5, page 36, par. 8)

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! 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.(about Hosea 6:2 see 2 Peter 3:8 a day for a year).

Like the King held the golden scepter out to Esther, so God holds out His golden scepter Jesus for us to touch by faith so we can live in the sight of a Holy God. Queen Vashti represents Adventists today, because like Queen Vashti, they refuse to show their beauty of the historical doctrines of SDA. Queen Esther represents the 144,000 which are symbolized by angels, the multitude of voices crying Matthew 25:6 "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him." This is the LAST warning message, the HARVEST message of the 4th angel which combines with the third angels message. This message invites Adventists to COME OUT of apostasy and to JOIN the procession into the Sanctuary where the BLOOD of CHRIST COVERS OUR SINS! It is a wilderness procession which means primitive Godliness - wilderness means obscure/little known, because FEW find the way to Heaven. Few find the TRUE Jesus.(Most follow ANOTHER JESUS of 2 Cor 11:3-4.) The true WAY that few will find is Jesus Christ. Claiming His blood as your own. 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." See the many verses in the Bible calling us to join THE WAY that the 5 WISE VIRGINS JOINED: Acts 24:14, Acts 24:22, Acts 9:2

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 end-time 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

 WILDERNESS PROCESSION more in detail - this is the last end time church - the 144,000 call to the sleepy foolish virgins to wake up and join!

The Landmarks Defined.--In Minneapolis God gave precious gems of truth to His people in new settings. This light from heaven by some was rejected with all the stubbornness the Jews manifested in rejecting Christ, and there was much talk about standing by the old landmarks. But there was evidence they knew not what the old landmarks were. There was evidence and there was reasoning from the word that commended itself to the conscience; but the minds of men were fixed, sealed against the entrance of light, because they had decided it was a dangerous error removing the "old landmarks" when it was not moving a peg of the old landmarks, but they had perverted ideas of what constituted the old landmarks.{CW 30.1}


Revelation 6:11
Then each of them was given a white robe and told to rest a little while longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers, were killed, just as they had been killed.

All along this path - from 1844 until probation closes for the Adventist church at the Sunday law, the 144,000 - are being chosen by God Himself as a Bride for His Son. A Royal Priesthood, in charge of giving the two tables/two charts found in Habakkuk 2, the two charts -the 1843 and 1850 charts, who are similar to Levite leaders, carrying the Ark of the Covenant on their shoulders, their MINDS JOINED TO CHRIST THROUGH CLAIMING THE BIBLE PROMISES as leaves off the tree of life, to live the truth in their daily lives, the church triumphant or the Bride of Christ on this narrow path who have been and are being chosen by God Himself until the number of 144,000 (12,000 from each tribe) are made up and ENTER by the FAITH of CHRIST INTO THE CITY OF GOD! Which IS the TEMPLE of GOD, His Body, His Bride who calls to the Ten sleepy Virgins to WAKE UP AND COME OUT OF ALL 501c3 churches INTO THE CITY OF GOD!

"A glorious light then rested down upon these companies, to enlighten all who would receive it. Some of those who were in darkness received the light and rejoicedOthers resisted the light from heaven, saying that it was sent to lead them astrayThe light passed away from them, and they were left in darkness. Those who had received the light from Jesus joyfully cherished the increase of precious light which was shed upon them. Their faces beamed with holy joy, while their gaze was directed upward to Jesus with intense interest, and their voices were heard in harmony with the voice of the angel, “Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come.” As they raised this cry, I saw those who were in darkness thrusting them with side and with shoulder. Then many who cherished the sacred light, broke the cords which confined them and stood out separated from those companies. As they were doing this, men belonging to the different companies and revered by them passed through, some with pleasing words, and others with wrathful looks and threatening gestures, and fastened the cords which were weakening. These men were constantly saying, “God is with us. We stand in the light. We have the truth.” I inquired who these men were, and was told that they were ministers and leading men who had rejected the light themselves, and were unwilling that others should receive it.

I saw those who cherished the light looking upward with ardent desire, expecting Jesus to come and take them to Himself. Soon a cloud passed over them, and their faces were sorrowful. I inquired the cause of this cloud and was shown that it was their disappointment. The time when they expected their Saviour had passed, and Jesus had not come. As discouragement settled upon the waiting ones, the ministers and leading men whom I had before noticed, rejoiced, and all those who had rejected the light triumphed greatly, while Satan and his evil angels also exulted.

Then I heard the voice of another angel saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen!” A light shone upon those desponding ones, and with ardent desires for His appearing, they again fixed their eyes upon Jesus. I saw a number of angels conversing with the one who had cried, “Babylon is fallen,” and these united with him in the cry, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him.” The musical voices of these angels seemed to reach everywhere. An exceedingly bright and glorious light shone around those who had cherished the light which had been imparted to them. Their faces shone with excellent glory, and they united with the angels in the cry, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh.” As they harmoniously raised the cry among the different companies, those who rejected the light pushed them and with angry looks scorned and derided them. But angels of God wafted their wings over the persecuted ones, while Satan and his angels were seeking to press their darkness around them, to lead them to reject the light from heaven.

Then I heard a voice saying to those who had been pushed and derided, “Come out from among them, and touch not the unclean.” In obedience to this voice, a large number broke the cords which bound them, and leaving the companies that were in darkness, joined those who had previously gained their freedom, and joyfully united their voices with them. I heard the voice of earnest, agonizing prayer from a few who still remained with the companies that were in darkness. The ministers and leading men were passing around in these different companies, fastening the cords more firmly; but still I heard this voice of earnest prayer. Then I saw those who had been praying reach out their hands for help toward the united company who were free, rejoicing in God. The answer from them, as they earnestly looked to heaven, and pointed upward, was, “Come out from among them, and be separate.” I saw individuals struggling for freedom, and at last they broke the cords that bound them. They resisted the efforts which were made to fasten the cords tighter and refused to heed the repeated assertions: “God is with us.” “We have the truth with us.” Persons were continually leaving the companies that were in darkness and joining the free company, who appeared to be in an open field raised above the earth. Their gaze was directed upward, the glory of God rested upon them, and they joyfully shouted His praise. They were closely united and seemed to be wrapped in the light of heaven. Around this company were some who came under the influence of the light, but who were not particularly united to the company. All who cherished the light shed upon them were gazing upward with intense interest, and Jesus looked upon them with sweet approbation. They expected Him to come and longed for His appearing. They did not cast one lingering look to earth. But again a cloud settled upon the waiting ones, and I saw them turn their weary eyes downward. I inquired the cause of this change. Said my accompanying angel, “They are again disappointed in their expectations. Jesus cannot yet come to earth. They must endure greater trials for His sake. They must give up errors and traditions received from men and turn wholly to God and His Word. They must be purified, made white, and tried. Those who endure that bitter trial will obtain an eternal victory.” Early Writings, p. 240.2




144,000: Like Elijah: Stopped the rain for 3.5 years by prayer, and started it again by prayer are the same. Like Moses brought down the plagues by the power of God in Him, the 144,000 can do the same today, like Moses and the Plagues of Egypt.


"By faith Moses' parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child (unusual: a beautiful child), and they were not afraid of the king's edict" Hebrews 11:23 NIV.

Exodus 1:16
and he said, "When you are helping the Hebrew women to give birth and see them upon the birthstool, if it is a son, then you shall put him to death; but if it is a daughter, then she shall live."

Exodus 1:22
Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, "Every son who is born you are to cast into the Nile, and every daughter you are to keep alive."

Exodus 2:2
The woman conceived and bore a son; and when she saw that he was beautiful, she hid him for three months.

Acts 7:20
At that time Moses was born, and he was beautiful in the sight of God. For three months he was nurtured in his father's house.

Revelation 11:6
These witnesses ("cloud of witnesses" Heb 12:1 represented/symbolized as "Moses") have power to shut the sky so that no rain will fall during the days of their prophecy [Third Angel's Message Rev 14:9-12], and power to turn the waters into blood, and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they wish.

"And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee" Deuteronomy 28:10.

"And in their mouth was found no guile (no false doctrines that break the Commandments of God): for they are without fault before the throne of God" Revelation 14:5

This goes along with Moses being like the 144,000, an en-sample for the 144,000 to follow: Moses. WHEN he was born, the 144,000 are BORN, not of natural decent, but of the truth, en-grafted in, adopted, Born of their Father Christ who is both human and divine. See James 1:18.

There are two cities. The HOLY CITY and the EVIL CITY. Those who keep the Commandments of God and the faith of Jesus = New Jerusalem VS those who keep the commandments and traditions of men and the faith of Satan = Babylon that great city. 


Ephesians 6:12 "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".

"Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah" Isaiah 1:10.

Jer 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

"Thus saith the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the Lord that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee" Isaiah 49:7.

"He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance" Psalm 105:21.

"Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will sing unto the Lord; I will sing praise to the Lord God of Israel" Judges 5:3.

Who are the residents of the New Jerusalem? The Father and the Lamb are there (Revelation 21:22). Angels are at the gates (verse 12). But the city will be filled with God’s redeemed children. The New Jerusalem is the righteous counter to the evil Babylon (Revelation 17), destroyed by God’s judgment (Revelation 18). The wicked had their city, and God has His. To which city do you belong? Babylon the Great or the New Jerusalem?

Are you a citizen of the New Jerusalem, a GEM or STONE in the WALL of NEW JERUSALEM? Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving and PRAISE = enter by obeying the Twelve Commandments of God... Exodus 20:8-11, . “God raised [you] up with Christ and seated [you] with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus” (
Ephesians 2:6). You have “an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade” (1 Peter 1:4). If you have not yet trusted Christ as your Savior, then we urge you to receive Him. The invitation is extended: “The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And let the one who hears say, ‘Come!’ Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life” (Revelation 22:17).

    "And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle" Rev 14:14.

    And I looked, and behold a white cloud (white cloud = 144,000), and upon the cloud (144,000) one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown (of victory), and in his hand a sharp sickle ().



    The heavenly watchers see the earth filled with violence and crime. Wealth is obtained by every species of robbery, not robbery of men only, but of God. Men are using His means to gratify their selfishness. Everything they can grasp is made to minister to their greed. Avarice and sensuality prevail. Men cherish the attributes of the first great deceiver. They have accepted him as God, and have become imbued with his spirit.

    But the cloud of judicial wrath hangs over them, containing the elements that destroyed Sodom. In his visions of things to come the prophet John beheld this scene. This demon worship was revealed to him, and it seemed to him as if the whole world were standing on the brink of perdition. But as he looked with intense interest he beheld the company of God's commandment-keeping people. They had upon their foreheads the seal of the living God, and he said: “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them. And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud One sat like unto the Son of man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in Thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for Thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And He that sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine
     of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.” Revelation 14:12-19.

    Before It Is Too Late

    When the storm of God's wrath breaks upon the world, it will be a terrible revelation for souls to find that their house is being swept away because it is built upon the sand. Let the warning be given them before it is too late. We should now feel the responsibility of laboring with intense earnestness to impart to others the truths that God has given for this time. We cannot be too much in earnest.

    The heart of God is moved. Souls are very precious in His sight. It was for this world that Christ wept in agony; for this world He was crucified. God gave His only-begotten Son to save sinners, and He desires us to love others as He has loved us. He desires to see those who have a knowledge of the truth imparting this knowledge to their fellow men.

    Now is the time for the last warning to be given. There is a special power in the presentation of the truth at the present time; but how long will it continue? Only a little while. If there was ever a crisis, it is now.

    All are now deciding their eternal destiny. Men need to be aroused to realize the solemnity of the time, the nearness of the day when human probation shall be ended. Decided efforts should be made to bring the message for this time prominently before the people. The third angel is to go forth with great power. Let none ignore this work or treat it as of little importance.

    The light we have received upon the third angel's message is the true light. The mark of the beast is exactly what it has been proclaimed to be. Not all in regard to this matter is yet understood, nor will it be understood until the unrolling of the scroll; but a most solemn work is to be accomplished in our world. The Lord's command to His servants is: “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” Isaiah 58:1.

    There is to be no change in the general features of our work. It is to stand as clear and distinct as prophecy has made it. We are to enter into no confederacy with the world, supposing that by so doing we could accomplish more. If any stand in the way, to hinder the advancement of the work in the lines that God has appointed, they will displease God. No line of truth that has made the Seventh-day Adventist people what they are is to be weakened. We have the old landmarks of truth, experience, and duty, and we are to stand firmly in defense of our principles, in full view of the world.

    It is essential that men be raised up to open the living oracles of God to all peoples. Men of all ranks and capacities, with their various gifts, are to co-operate harmoniously for a common result. They are to unite in the work of bringing the truth to the people, each worker fulfilling his own special appointment.


    "I beheld," says the prophet Daniel, "till thrones were placed, and One that was Ancient of Days did sit: His raiment was white as snow, and the hair of His head like pure wool; His throne was fiery flames, and the wheels thereof burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him: thousand thousands ministered unto Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened." Daniel 7:9, 10, R.V.

    Thus was presented to the prophet's vision the great and solemn day when the characters and the lives of men should pass in review before the Judge of all the earth, and to every man should be rendered "according to his works." The Ancient of Days is God the Father. Says the psalmist: "Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever Thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God." Psalm 90:2. It is He, the source of all being, and the fountain of all law, that is to preside in the judgment. And holy angels as ministers and witnesses, in number "ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands," attend this great tribunal.

    "And, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. And there was given Him [480] dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him: His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away." Daniel 7:13, 14. The coming of Christ here described is not His second coming to the earth. He comes to the Ancient of Days in heaven to receive dominion and glory and a kingdom, which will be given Him at the close of His work as a mediator. It is this coming, and not His second advent to the earth, that was foretold in prophecy to take place at the termination of the 2300 days in 1844. Attended by heavenly angels, our great High Priest enters the holy of holies and there appears in the presence of God to engage in the last acts of His ministration in behalf of man—to perform the work of investigative judgment and to make an atonement for all who are shown to be entitled to its benefits.

    In the typical service only those who had come before God with confession and repentance, and whose sins, through the blood of the sin offering, were transferred to the sanctuary, had a part in the service of the Day of Atonement. So in the great day of final atonement and investigative judgment the only cases considered are those of the professed people of God. The judgment of the wicked is a distinct and separate work, and takes place at a later period. "Judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel?" 1 Peter 4:17.

    The books of record in heaven, in which the names and the deeds of men are registered, are to determine the decisions of the judgment. Says the prophet Daniel: "The judgment was set, and the books were opened." The revelator, describing the same scene, adds: "Another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works." Revelation 20:12.

    The book of life contains the names of all who have ever entered the service of God. Jesus bade His disciples: "Rejoice, [481] because your names are written in heaven." Luke 10:20. Paul speaks of his faithful fellow workers, "whose names are in the book of life." Philippians 4:3. Daniel, looking down to "a time of trouble, such as never was," declares that God's people shall be delivered, "everyone that shall be found written in the book." And the revelator says that those only shall enter the city of God whose names "are written in the Lamb's book of life." Daniel 12:1; Revelation 21:27.
    "A book of remembrance" is written before God, in which are recorded the good deeds of "them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon His name." Malachi 3:16. Their words of faith, their acts of love, are registered in heaven. Nehemiah refers to this when he says: "Remember me, O my God, . . . and wipe not out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God." Nehemiah 13:14. In the book of God's remembrance every deed of righteousness is immortalized. There every temptation resisted, every evil overcome, every word of tender pity expressed, is faithfully chronicled. And every act of sacrifice, every suffering and sorrow endured for Christ's sake, is recorded. Says the psalmist: "Thou tellest my wanderings: put Thou my tears into Thy bottle: are they not in Thy book?" Psalm 56:8.

    There is a record also of the sins of men. "For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil." "Every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment." Says the Saviour: "By thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." Ecclesiastes 12:14; Matthew 12:36, 37. The secret purposes and motives appear in the unerring register; for God "will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts." 1 Corinthians 4:5. "Behold, it is written before Me, . . . your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the Lord." Isaiah 65:6, 7. [482]

    Every man's work passes in review before God and is registered for faithfulness or unfaithfulness. Opposite each name in the books of heaven is entered with terrible exactness every wrong word, every selfish act, every unfulfilled duty, and every secret sin, with every artful dissembling. Heaven-sent warnings or reproofs neglected, wasted moments, unimproved opportunities, the influence exerted for good or for evil, with its far-reaching results, all are chronicled by the recording angel.

    The law of God is the standard by which the characters and the lives of men will be tested in the judgment. Says the wise man: "Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment." Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14. The apostle James admonishes his brethren: "So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty." James 2:12

    Those who in the judgment are "accounted worthy" will have a part in the resurrection of the just. Jesus said: "They which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, . . . are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection." Luke 20:35, 36. And again He declares that "they that have done good" shall come forth "unto the resurrection of life." John 5:29. The righteous dead will not be raised until after the judgment at which they are accounted worthy of "the resurrection of life." Hence they will not be present in person at the tribunal when their records are examined and their cases decided.

    Jesus will appear as their advocate, to plead in their behalf before God. "If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous." 1 John 2:1. "For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us." "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." Hebrews 9:24; 7:25. [483] 



     It is the kingdom of heaven that is like unto a net that gathered every kind and sorts the bad from the good; not the corporate, apostate SDA Church. That heavenly kingdom is further described as follows:

     "But ye are come unto mount Sion, 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 [registered] in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect." Hebrews 12:22, 23.

     Zion is married--Isaiah 62:1-5:

    "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." Isa. 62:5. 
    Zion is the bride of Christ.
    Zion is the city of the living God.
    Zion is the heavenly Jerusalem.
    Zion is a company of innumerable angels.
    Zion is a general assembly and church of the firstborn [firstfruits--Rev. 14:4].
    Zion is written [registered in heaven].
    Zion is comprised of the spirits of just men made perfect.
    Zion gets a NEW NAME--Isaiah 62:1, 2 as follows:

     “For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shall be called by A NEW NAME, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.”

     ZION'S NEW NAME IS THE NEW JERUSALEM:

     "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and 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.

     Zion is Philadelphia per the above message to Philadelphia. Ellen White applies all seven messages to the end of time:

     "The names of the seven churches are symbolic of the church in different periods of the Christian Era. The number 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 [collectively and generally] at different periods in the history of the world." E.G. White, The Acts of the Apostles, 585.

     Zion is the 144,000 who are perfect men with no guile in their mouths. Rev. 14:5.

    Zion is without fault before God. Rev. 14:5.
    Zion is the 144,000 who are translated without seeing second death.
    Zion, the bride, is the FIRSTFRUITS [FIRSTBORN] unto God and to the Lamb. Rev. 14:4; Heb. 12:22, 23.
    Zion [The heavenly Sanctuary--Holy of Holies] is where we are to enter now, by Spirit (Heb. 12:23) and Early Writings, p. 256.
    Zion is the HEAVENLY SANCTUARY that will be cleansed to perfection (blameless—Rev. 14:1-4) before the Loud Cry. It is her voice, the voice of the bride and the voice of God that awakens all ten virgins, Christ’s Object Lessons, 405-406 and Daniel 8:14. The bride must make herself ready before the Loud Cry.
    Zion is HIS FLOOR THAT WILL BE PURGED.
    Zion is HIS GARNER OR BARN.
    Zion is the CHURCH TRIUMPHANT (Without fault, without guile--Rev. 14:5).

     All we can garner from the above facts is that the bad are shaken out of Zion, by Zion. Zion, the bride, the 144,000, are earthly representatives [like Melchezidek] of heavenly Jerusalem. Zion is Philadelphia the church triumphant who is kept through the time of trouble:

     "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, WHICH SHALL COME UPON ALL THE WORLD [TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE], to try them that dwell upon the earth." Rev. 3:10.

     It is reasonable to conclude that if Philadelphia, New Jerusalem, Zion, is kept through the time of trouble that is to come upon the whole earth, she must be around at the end time! Zion is the true Church Triumphant that has existed from time immemorial. She is the bride of Jesus Christ. It is from her and by her that all the bad are shaken, and not any apostate once church militant.

     The home churches are not Zion. Some members of Zion may be among the home churches, but not all members of home churches are necessarily members of Zion. The home churches are merely a valid church militant. When the bride is ready, all who are saved will join her procession and heed her call of Isaiah 62:11, which is a paraphrase of Matthew 25:6.

     How do we prove that the 144,000 are the Bride? I repeat for important emphasis because the church teaches the heinous error that the 144,000 is only a symbolic number that includes all who are saved.

     ·       Zion is married--the "firstfruits" BARLEY bride--Isa. 62:1-5; Rev. 14:4.

    ·       Zion is the REMNANT--Isa. 4:3; Isa. 37:31, 32 in figure.

    ·       Zion is the REMNANT of her seed: Rev. 12:17.

    ·       Zion is without fault (Perfect) Heb. 12:23.

    ·       Zion is without guile (Rev. 14:4).

    ·       Zion's glory and righteousness will be seen by all kings--Isa. 62:1, 2.

    ·       Zion, the perfect bride of the Lamb, is made ready--Rev. 19:7-9.

    ·       Zion is the firstborn (Heb. 12:22, 23) and firstfruits barley wave sheaf offering, Rev. 14:4. 10.

    ·       Zion awakens the daughters of Zion, the 10 virgins with a separation message--"Behold the bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him." Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 405-406; Isa. 62:11 and Matt. 25.

    ·       Zion follows Jesus wherever He goes, and He goes into the Sanctuary, and that is why Zion, Philadelphia, is made a pillar in the Temple, Rev. 3:12. Christ is the High Priest. She is the lesser.

    ·       Zion, as the bride, is logically the EARTHLY REPRESENTATIVE [like Melchizedek, Moses, Queen Esther and Sarah, Abraham's wife] of the heavenly kingdom, by being the herald of the three angel's messages to the world.

     In diagram: Zion=bride=Philadelphia kept through time of trouble=REMNANT (Rev. 12:17)=144,000 translated without seeing death--Rev. 14:1-4.

     The Shaking From the Perspective of The Spirit of Prophecy and Scripture

     We have looked at Zion from a scriptural reference point, and now we will combine scripture with the Spirit of Prophecy elaborations on Zion. To begin with, the following statement about the church appearing as about to fall, should take on an entirely different meaning and perspective knowing what we have now learned about Zion:

     "The woman is a symbol of the church, and the remnant of the church representsthe 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.

     "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 bride, the Lamb's wife.' Said the angel to John: 'Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.' 'He carried me away in the spirit,' says the prophet, 'and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.' Revelation 21:9, 10. Clearly, then, the bride represents the Holy City, and the virgins that go out to meet the bridegroom are a symbol of the church [militant]. In the Revelation the people of God are said to be the guests at the marriage supper. Revelation 19:9. If guests, they cannot be represented also as the bride...He will receive the New Jerusalem, the capital of His kingdom, 'prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.'" E. G. White, The Great Controversy, pp. 426, 427.

     The New Jerusalem is Philadelphia (Rev. 3:10-12) and she is the pillars (leaders) in the Temple in heaven. Christ is the High Priest and she constitutes the lesser priesthood.

    Zechariah 9:7
    Non meat eaters will "become leaders" like a clan in Judah, shall be as a governor, be as a chieftain, be as a leader 

     "The church may appear as about to fall, but it does not fall. It remains, while the sinners IN ZION [old SDA beliefs/landmarks] will be sifted out--the chaff separated from the precious wheat [AFTER THE CLOSE OF PROBATIONARY TIME--CHRIST'S OBJECT LESSONS 72]. 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 REMNANT that purify their souls by obeying the truth [old SDA landmarks=3 Angel's Messages Rev 14:6-12] gather strength from the trying process, exhibiting the beauty of holiness amid the surrounding apostasy. All these, He says, 'I have graven . . . upon the palms of my hands' (Isa. 49:16)...
    That which God required of Adam before his fall was perfect obedience to His law. God requires now what He required of Adam, perfect obedience, righteousness without a flaw, without shortcoming in His sight....We cannot do this without that faith that brings Christ's righteousness into daily practice." E.G. White, Selected Messages, vol. 2, 380.

     It is clear as crystal that sinners of every generation are shaken out of Zion, the heavenly kingdom, the church triumphant, existing since time immemorial, and not out of any church denomination to leave it as the future church triumphant.

     What Distinguishes the Bride From the Great Multitude in the Kingdom of God?

     ·       The bride is the FIRSTFRUITS barley wave sheaf offering unto Christ.

    ·       The "barley" bride is different from the wheat and tare 10 virgin bridesmaidens.

    ·       The bride is different from the guests. (The Great Controversy, pp. 426-7).

    ·       The bride is the mother of sons and daughters (Isa. 62:5 and 11).

    ·       The bride is the remnant, the 144,000, that is translated without seeing death.

    ·       Only the bride, the 144,000 enter the temple on Mt. Zion. Early Writings,p. 19.

    ·       Only the bride, Philadelphia, is made pillars [leaders] in the temple (Rev. 3:12). Christ is the High Priest of the Sanctuary Temple, and the bride is the lesser priests, as in the earthly prototype.

    ·       The bride follows Jesus wherever He goes and is seated nearest His throne.

    ·       The bride is a strictly pure (bethulah) virgin (Isa. 62:5), while the ten-virgins guests are concubine brides maiden guests at the wedding.

    ·       The voice of God and the voice of the bride awakens the ten-virgin brides maidens (Christ's Object Lessons, 406).

     Zion, the bride, the 144,000 is translated without seeing death. The bride is likened unto a Holy woman and her children:

     "The people of God, symbolized by a holy woman and her children, were represented as greatly in the minority. In the last days only a remnant still existed. Of these John speaks as they 'which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." E. G. White, Signs of the Times, Nov. 1, 1899, and Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary, vol. 7, p. 972.

     Isaiah 62 says that Zion is married and that she has sons and daughters.

      "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 by 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.

     If all the church were the bride, the remnant, then the entire church (the bride andten-brides maiden guests) would have to be translated without seeing death.

     The Firstfruits Bride is Symbolized by Barley, not Wheat

     "Barley was the earliest grain in Palestine, and at the opening of the feast it was beginning to ripen. A sheaf of this grain was waved by the priest before the altar of God, as an acknowledgment that all was His. Not until this ceremony had been performed was the harvest to gathered." Patriarchs and Prophets, 539.

     Accordingly, it is not until the bride has made herself ready that the harvest of souls is gathered, Rev. 19:7. The bride must be ready first, because it is she who receives the latter rain first to make the call to all ten virgin guests. It is her voice and the voice of God that awaken the ten-virgins with the Loud Cry, the Midnight Cry, Matt. 25 and Christ's Object Lessons, 406.

     The wave sheaf symbolized our risen Saviour as the firstfruits of all who are risenfrom the dead, and that all was His. The Lord has shown this writer in vision that one of the symbols of the wave sheaf of barley, the earliest crop to ripen, was also the FIRSTFRUITS "barley" bride of Rev. 14:4. I was shown that the bride of every generation will be resurrected to give the final gospel to the world, and thus the FIRSTFRUITS of the resurrection also applies to her. The disciples of Christ were part of the bride of Christ, Desire of Ages, 179. I was shown that the words "without seeing death" refer to the bride after her resurrection and after the commencement of the time of Jacob's trouble. The bride of past generations, of course, has seen death.

     Also, I was shown that when Jesus fed the 5000 throng with five barley loaves and two fishes, and after they were fed the disciples gathered up twelve baskets full of remains, the twelve baskets of remnants (remains) symbolize the barley bride of twelve tribes comprising the 144,000. The bits of fish remains symbolize the remnant bride as a fisher of men, just as the disciples were the bride and fishers of men, Desire of Ages, 179.

     Most Startling Messages

     "Most startling messages will be borne by men of God's appointment, messages of a character to WARN the people, to AROUSE them. And while some will be PROVOKED by the warning, and led to RESIST LIGHT AND EVIDENCE, we are to see from this that we are giving the TESTING MESSAGE FOR THIS TIME. Messages will be given OUT OF THE USUAL ORDER." Testimonies,Vol. 9, p. 136.

     Messages of warning will be given out of the usual order. And what is the "usual order?" From the pulpit by so called credentialed minister leaders.

     My Most Startling Message--Will it be Rejected?

     Beloved, we are near the end. It is time to get serious. God is forcing the issues. He is forcing people off the Laodicean fence of lukewarmness and cold apostasy. We will either choose God's way or remain Laodicean and be lost, because Ellen White says that the Laodicean state of the church is the state of the foolish virgins.What is my most startling message to professing SDA's at this hour? That afailure of anyone who knows the three angel's messages, to separate from any church that is linked in any way with Babylon's associations, counsels, girdings and confederacies, is to commit unpardonable sin by disobeying the three angel's messages and taking one's eyes off the Midnight Cry lighted path, making it IMPOSSIBLE to get back on the path again, TO WIT:

     "While praying at the family altar, the Holy Ghost fell on me, and I seemed to be rising higher and higher, far above the dark world. I turned to look for the Advent people in the world, but could not find them--when a voice said to me, 'Look again, and look a little higher.' At this I raised my eyes and saw a straight and narrow path cast up high above the world. On this path the Advent people were travelling to the City, which was at the farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the first end of the path, which an angel told me was the Midnight Cry. This light shone all along the path, and gave light for their feet so they might not stumble. And if they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus, who was just before them, leading them to the City, they were safe. But soon some grew weary, and they said the City was a great way of, and they expected to have entered it before. Then Jesus would encourage them by raising his glorious right arm, and from his arm came a glorious light which waved over the Advent band, and they shouted Hallelujah! Others rashly denied the light behind them, and said that it was not God that had led them out so far. The light behind them went out leaving their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and got their eyes off the mark and lost sight of Jesus, and fell off the path down in the dark and wicked world below. It was just as impossible for them to get on the path again and go to the City, as all the wicked world which God had rejected. They fell all the way along the path one after another, until we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus' coming.... 

    By this time 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." E.G. White, Word to the Little Flock, p. 14.

     OUR COMMENTARY: The Midnight Cry of Matthew 25, called people out of the fallen churches. All who ever hear and understand the Midnight Cry, and thereafter take their eyes off the path lighted by that cry, by re-joining the fallen churches they were called out of, by renewed membership or confederacy in ASSOCIATION, COUNSEL AND/OR COUNCIL, GIRDING, OR LINKING WITH THEM IN ANY WAY WHICH WOULD IDENTIFY US WITH THEM, FALL OFF THE PATH AND IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO GET ON THE PATH AGAIN, WHICH IMPLIES SHUT DOOR UNPARDONABLE SIN! God's Word implies the same unpardonableness for such offense in Isaiah 8:9-20, and Revelation 14:9, 10. This is what Ellen White really meant by "shut door!" Those who have committed this unpardonable sin have grossly perverted her meaning. This is a most serious consideration every SDA should weigh heavily before he/she determines to enter ecumenical relationship with and/or join any of the fallen churches.

     "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, Fundamentals of Christian Education, 482.

     "They that forsake the law praise the wicked.' Proverbs 28:4. When those who are uniting with the world, yet claiming great purity, plead for union with those who have ever been the opposers of the cause of truth, we should fear and shun them as decidedly as did Nehemiah. Such counsel is prompted b the enemy of all good. It is the speech of timeservers, and should be resisted as resolutely today as them. Whatever influence would tend to unsettle the faith of god's people in His guiding power, should be steadfastly withstood." E.G. White, Prophets and Kings, p. 661.

     "Those who are uniting with the world [and churches that cannot be distinguished from the world, Early Writings, 273] are receiving the worldly mold and preparing for the mark of the beast." Testimonies, Vol. 5, 216."

     "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.

     "Christ was a protestant...The Reformers date back to Christ and the apostles. They came out and separated themselves from a religion of forms and ceremonies. Luther and his followers did not invent the reformed religion. They simply accepted it as presented by Christ and the apostles." E.G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 2, 48, col. 2.

     What you are reading is indeed a most shocking and startling message! Especially since the professing SDA Church has aligned itself in MEMBERSHIP with at least nine National Councils of Churches around the world, and sits as an ADVISOR on the largest Committee of the World Council of Churches, the Central Committee. The only way a church becomes a member of the world council of churches is by joining one or more National Councils of Churches around the world. The professing SDA Church has done this in the following countries:

     ·       The U.S.A. http://omega77.tripod.com/nationalcouncilupdate.htm

    ·       The cook Islands

    ·       Bermuda

    ·       Germany

    ·       Sweden

    ·       China

    ·       Belize

    ·       Hungary via the Hungarian Council of Free Churches

    ·       Zambia

    ·       Bahamas

     In 1844, within the space of three months time, all who heard but rejected the first and second angel's messages, combined with the Midnight Cry, which was designed to give power and force to the second angel's message, fell off the path and it was impossible for them to get back on it again. Thus that IMPOSSIBILITY implies UNPARDONABLE SIN. All who would not leave the fallen churches after they had heard the Midnight Cry, were forever lost. Why? Because they had rejected eternal life saving truth! They became fallen for rejecting this truth. Notice:

     "When the CHURCHES spurned the counsel of God by rejecting the Advent message, the Lord rejected them. The first angel was followed by a second, proclaiming, 'Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication' [Rev. 14:8]. This message was understood by Adventists to be an announcement of the moral fall of the churches in consequence of their rejection of the first message. The proclamation, 'Babylon is fallen,' was given in the summer of 1844, and as the result, ABOUT FIFTY THOUSAND WITHDREW FROM THESE CHURCHES." E.G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy, (1884 Great Controversy),Vol. 4, p. 232.

      "Christ was a protestant...The Reformers date back to Christ and the apostles. They came out and separated themselves from a religion of forms and ceremonies. Luther and his followers did not invent the reformed religion. They simply accepted it as presented by Christ and the apostles." E.G. White, Review and Herald, vol. 2, 48, col. 2.

    “And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God.  9But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus.” Acts 19:8, 9.

     “Fearing that the faith of the believers would be endangered by continued association with these opposers of the truth, Paul separated from them, and gathered the disciples into a distinct body.” E.G. White, Acts of the Apostles, p. 285, 286.

     "The recreant priests added licentiousness to the dark catalogue of their crimes yet they still polluted by their presence the tabernacle of the Lord, and, laden with sin, dared to come into the presence of a holy God. As the men of Israel witnessed the corrupt course of the priests, they thought it safer for their families not to come up to the appointed place of worship. Many went from Shiloh with their peace disturbed, their indignation aroused, until they at last determined to offer their sacrifices themselves, concluding that this would be fully as acceptable to God, as to sanction in any manner the abominations practiced in the Sanctuary." E.G. White, The Signs of the Times, vol. 1, p. 264, col. 3, December 1, 1881. 

     "As the churches refused to receive the first angel's message, they rejected the light from heaven and fell from the favor of God. They trusted to their own strength, and by opposing the first message placed themselves where they could not see the light of the second angel's message. But the beloved of God, who were oppressed, accepted the message, 'Babylon is fallen,' and LEFT THE CHURCHES." Early Writings, p. 237.

     “It was to separate the church of Christ from the corrupting influence of the world that the first angel's message was given. But with the multitude, even of professed Christians, the ties which bound them to earth were stronger than the attractions heavenward. They chose to listen to the voice of worldly wisdom and turned away from the heart-searching message of truth...When the churches spurned the counsel of God by rejecting the advent message, the Lord rejected them. The first angel was followed by a second...This message was understood by Adventist to be an announcement of the moral fall of the churches in consequence of their rejection of the FIRST MESSAGE.” E.G. White, Story of Redemption,p. 364.

     Seventh-day Adventists were called out of the fallen churches to be a holy, separate, and peculiar people unto God. If they now link up with these churches in any way, as they indeed have done, they are returned to the iniquities of their forefathers in violation of Isaiah 8:9-20, and Jeremiah 11:9-15. Thus the professing corporate SDA apostate church has taken its eyes off the Midnight Cry lighted path, making it impossible to get on the path again. If individual members do not speedily separate from such an apostate church as soon as they discover this most startling message of pure truth, they become corporately responsible for this unpardonable sin. This indeed is a most startling message. However the facts are clear to all who are seeking truth. Will God have to apologize to those who in1844, rejected the Midnight Cry, and the first and second angel's messages, thereby falling off the path? Why should they have a "shut door" on salvation, and SDAs today be permitted to reject the same messages by ecumenical linkage with Babylon?

     Corporate Responsibility: "The plain straight testimony must live in the church, or the curse of God will rest upon His people as surely as it did upon ancient Israel because of their sins. God holds His people, as a body, responsible for the sins existing in individuals among them." Testimonies, Vol. 3, p. 269.

     Revelation 14:10 endorses Ellen White's view of what happens to any who violate the three angel's messages and the Midnight Cry after knowing such privileged truth, as does Isaiah 8:9-20. All such are "broken in pieces."

     Broken in Pieces and God's Breaking in Pieces Weapon

     Ellen White says that Ezekiel 9 is to have another literal fulfillment. Ezekiel 9:2,mentions a "slaughtering weapon." If you look in the marginal reference for the meaning of this you will see the words:

     "a weapon of His breaking in pieces."

     Ecumenical conspiracy with God's enemies is why professing SDA's will experience another fulfillment of Ezekiel 9. Men, maidens and little children will be broken in pieces and destroyed. The destruction will be meted out by Babylon. Notice the following statement by Ellen White from a chapter in Testimonies,Vol. 5, that begins by quoting Ezekiel 9:

     "Here we see that the church--the Lord's sanctuary--was the first to feel the stroke of the wrath of God. The ancient men, those to whom God had given great light and who had stood as guardians of the spiritual interests of the people, and betrayed their trust. They had taken the position that we need not look for miracles and the marked manifestation of God's power as in former days. Times have changed. These words strengthen their unbelief, and they say: The Lord will not do good, neither will He do evil. He is too merciful to visit His people in judgment. Thus 'Peace and safety" is the cry from men who will never again lift up their voice like a trumpet to show God's people their transgressions and the house of Jacob their sins. These dumb dogs that would not bark are the ones who feel the just vengeance of an offended God. Men, maidens, and little children all perish together." E. G. White, Testimonies, Vol. 5, 211.

     "Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel. These words will be literally fulfilled; yet the time is passing, and the people are asleep. They refuse to humble their souls and to be converted. Not a great while longer will the Lord bear with the people who have such great and important truths revealed to them, but who refuse to bring these truths into their individual experience. The time is short. God is calling; will YOU hear? Will YOU receive His message? Will YOU be converted before it is too late? Soon, very soon, every case will be decided for eternity. E.G. White,Letter 106, 1909, pp. 2, 3, 5, 7. (To "The churches in Oakland and Berkeley, September 26, 1909.)" E. G. White Manuscript Releases Volume One, p. 260.

     "The things you have described as taking place in Indiana, the Lord has shown me would take place just before the close of probation. Every uncouth thing will be demonstrated. There will be shouting, with drums, music, and dancing. The senses of rational beings will become so confused that they cannot be trusted to make right decisions. And this is called the moving of the Holy Spirit. 

    The Holy Spirit never reveals itself in such methods, in such a bedlam of noise. This is an invention of Satan to cover up his ingenious methods for making of none effect the pure, sincere, elevating, ennobling, sanctifying truth for this time. Better never have the worship of God blended with music, than to use musical instruments to do the work which last January was represented to me would be brought into our camp meetings. The truth for this time needs nothing of this kind in its work of converting souls. A bedlam of noise shocks the senses and perverts that which if conducted aright might be a blessing. The powers of satanic agencies blend with the din and noise, to have a carnival, and this is termed the Holy Spirit's working." E. G. White, Selected Messages, Vol. 2, 36.

     "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.

     "If the church of God becomes LUKEWARM [LAODICEAN] it does not stand in favor with God any more than do the churches that are represented as having fallen and become the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Those who have had opportunities to hear and receive the truth, and who have united with the Seventh-day Adventist church, calling themselves the commandment keeping people of God, and yet possess no more vitality and consecration to God than do the nominal churches, will receive of the plagues of God just as verily as the churches who oppose the law of God." E.G. White, Letter 35, 1898.

     The church became Laodicean. That was bad enough. But it went beyond the lukewarm Laodicean condition, which was subject to reform and repentance, to become cold apostate to the point of re-joining Babylon’s confederacies. After knowing the truth of the first and second angel’s messages and the Midnight Cry of Matthew 25, which gave power to the second angel’s message, such apostasy is beyond God’s line of forgiveness as Jeremiah 11:9-15, Isaiah 8:9-12, and Word to the Little Flock, p. 14, all testify.

     Adventists, Like the Jews, Have Misinterpreted The Favorable Words of Their Prophet--EGW--to the Church!

     "The Jews had deceived themselves by misinterpreting the words of the Lord through his prophets, of his eternal favor to his people Israel. 

    'Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; the Lord of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever. Thus saith the Lord: If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord.' Jer. 31:35-37.
    These words the Jews applied to themselves. And because God had shown them so great favor and mercy, they flattered themselves that, notwithstanding their sins and iniquities, he would still retain them as his favored people, and shower especial blessings upon them. They misapplied the words of Jeremiah and depended for their salvation upon being called the [chosen] children of Abraham. If they had indeed been worthy o the name of Abraham's children, they would have followed the righteous example of their father Abraham, and would have done the works of Abraham.

    This has been the danger of the people of God in all ages; and especially is this the danger of those living near the close of time. . . 

    God would in no wise excuse sin in a people who had been enlightened, even if he had, in their days of faithfulness and purity, loved them, and given them especial promises. These promises and blessings were always upon condition of obedience upon their part.

    The Lord pronounced, by the mouth of Moses, blessings upon the obedient, and curses upon the disobedient." E. G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 1, 123.

     

    "The Lord Jesus will always have a chosen people to serve Him. When the Jewish people rejected Christ, the Prince of life, He took from them the kingdom of God and gave it unto the Gentiles. God will continue to work on this principle with every branch of His work. When a church proves unfaithful to the work of the Lord, whatever their position may be, however high and sacred their calling, the Lord can no longer work with them. Others are then chosen to bear important responsibilities. But, if these in turn do not purify their lives from every wrong action, if they do not establish pure and holy principles in all their borders, then the Lord will grievously afflict and humble them and, unless they repent, will remove them from their place and make them a reproach.
    God is not 'worshipped with men's hands, as tough he needed any thing' (Acts 17:25).” E. G. White, The Upward Look, 131.

     “We must as a people arouse and cleanse the camp of Israel. Licentiousness, unlawful intimacy, and unholy practices are coming in among us in a large degree...We are in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted and filled with every foul spirit, a cage for every unclean and hateful bird, and will we be clear unless we make decided movements to cure the existing evil?” E. G. White, Manuscript Releases No. 449,pp. 17, 18.

     "If we turn from the testimony of God's word, and accept false doctrines [Calvinism] because our fathers taught them, ["turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers" Jer. 11:9] we fall under the condemnation pronounced upon Babylon; we are drinking of the wine of her abominations." E. G White, The 1884 Great Controversy entitled Spirit of Prophecy, Vol. 4, 347, not to be confused with Testimonies, Vol. 4. The four volume Spirit of Prophecy series,can still be special ordered through any Adventist Book Store.

     "It is now the duty of God's commandment--keeping people to watch and pray, to search the Scriptures diligently, to hide the Word of God in the heart, lest they sin against Him in idolatrous thoughts and debasing practices, and the church of God become demoralized like the fallen churches whom prophecy represents as being filled with every unclean and hateful bird." E. G. White, Review and Herald,May 17, 1887.

     "In the balances of the sanctuary the Seventh-day Adventist church is to be weighed. She will be judged by the privileges and advantages that she has had. . . .I saw our Instructor pointing to the garments of so-called righteousness. Stripping them of, He laid bare he defilement beneath. Then He 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?’" E. G. White,Testimonies, Vol. 8, pp. 247-250.

     Such statements as the above would be redundant, superfluous and foolish, if Ellen White had ever given the SDA Church militant a blanket approval, saying that it was the church that the gates of hell would not prevail against. She meant the SDA Church Triumphant, a faithful, escaped remnant.

     "The Sanhedrin had rejected Christ's message and was bent upon His death; therefore Jesus departed from Jerusalem, from the priests, the temple, the religious leaders, the people who had been instructed in the law, and turned to another class to proclaim His message, and to gather out those who should carry the gospel to all nations.

    As the light and life of men was rejected by the ecclesiastical authorities in the days of Christ, so it has been rejected in every succeeding generation. Again and again the history of Christ's withdrawal [separation] from Judea has been repeated. When the Reformers preached the word of God, they had no thought of separating themselves from the established church; but the religious leaders would not tolerate the light, and those that bore it were forced to seek another class, who were longing for the truth. In our day few of the professed followers of the Reformers are actuated by their spirit. Few are listening for the voice of God, and ready to accept truth in whatever guise it may be presented. Often those who follow in the steps of the Reformers are forced to turn away from the churches they love, in order to declare the plain teaching of the word of God. And many times those who are seeking for light are by the same teaching obliged to leave the church of their fathers, that they may render obedience." E.G. White, Desire of Ages, 232.

    Why Paul Separated

    "And as they persisted in their rejection of the gospel the apostle (Paul) went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space for three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God. But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus." Acts, 19:8, 9.

    "Fearing that the faith of the believers would be endangered by continued association with these opposers of the truth, Paul separated from them, and gathered the disciples into a distinct body." E.G. White, Acts of the Apostles, p. 286.

    Scripture on Home Churches

    ·       Act 16:32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

    ·       Act 16:34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

    ·       Act 16:40 And they went out of the prison, and entered into [the house of] Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.

    ·       Act 18:7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain [man's] house, named Justus, [one] that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.

    ·       Rom 16:5 Likewise [greet] the church that is in their house. Salute my well beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.

    ·       1Cr 1:11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them [which are of the house] of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

    ·       1Cr 16:15 I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and [that] they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)

    ·       1Cr 16:19 The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.

    Isaiah 26:20
    Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers (2315 a chamber, room), and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. 

    thou into thy chambers
    cheder  (kheh'-der)
    an apartment (usually literal) -- (bed) inner) chamber, innermost(-ward) part, parlour, + south, within.


    Exodus 12:22 Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. Not one of you shall go out the door of his house until morning. 

    Blood = Jesus Blood = White Raiment = Putting on the character (ten commandments of God - washing our robes in the blood of the Lamb.  Getting  "sin against Him in idolatrous thoughts and debasing practices " out of our lives.  These have the blood of Jesus covering them "which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ". 

    Door frame of our hearts=minds - putting the ten commandments on our doorframes

    Not come out until morning = morning Christ's second advent - home churches from now until Jesus comes. Where two or three are gathered together in MY NAME...keeping the commandments and have the testimony of Jesus - meaning we speak the WORDS of JESUS, not our sinful words.

    "Jesus has stooped very low in order to reach man in his low estate. And God requires of man to make earnest efforts, and deny self, that he may preserve his vigor of mind, and elevate himself, and imitate the example of him in whom was no guile. Then will he be benefited with the atonement of Christ. 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 (rooms-homes), and shut thy doors about thee. Hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity. The earth, also, shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”

    Christ took not on him the nature of angels, but the nature of man, that he might acquaint himself with the temptations with which he was beset, and help man in his fallen state, and by his own humiliation and death elevate men to become heirs with him to his Father’s kingdom. SPIRITUAL GIFTS, VOLUME 4A, PAGE 149

     Change leaders : "There is manifested on the part of men in responsible positions an unwillingness to confess where they have been in the wrong; and their neglect is working disaster, not only to themselves, but to the churches....You will be left to make mistakes of a similar character, you will continue to lack wisdom, and will call sin righteousness and righteousness sin. The multitude of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will change leaders, and not know that you have done so." E.G. White, Review and Herald, 12-16-1890, col. 2, 448.

     "The recreant priests added licentiousness to the dark catalogue of their crimes; yet they still polluted by their presence the tabernacle of the Lord, and, laden with sin, dared to come into the presence of a holy God. As the men o Israel witnessed the corrupt course of the priests, they thought it safer for their families not to come up to the appointed place of worship. Many went from Shiloh with their peace disturbed, their indignation aroused, until they at last determined to offer their sacrifices themselves, concluding that this would be fully as acceptable to God, as to sanction in any manner the abominations practiced in the Sanctuary." E.G. White, The Signs of the Times, vol. 1, p. 264, col. 3, December 1, 1881.

     

    Ellen White clearly states in The Great Controversy, p. 25, 1911, edition, that the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. was a PREFIGURE. Prefigure means TYPE, which demands a similar ANTITYPICAL FULFILLMENT. Then she says that another LITERAL FULFILLMENT of Ezekiel 9 will occur. So all we have to do is go back to the TYPE, THE PREFIGURE and see what happened then, and any other interpretation makes Ellen White a false prophet:


    1) Who left who then? The good left the Bad.

    2) Where were the tares gathered? Into the Midst of Jerusalem, the apostate church, Ezekiel 22:17-31.

    3) Was there a primitive revival of the Jewish people? Yes! Where did it take place? Within the apostate Jewish Church, or outside it? Obviously outside it,Desire of Ages, 232, or it would not have been destroyed had the revival occurred inside the Jewish church!

    4) Who was True Zion, from whence the sinners were shaken? Was it the apostate Jewish Organization, or was it from the reformer church of Jesus and the disciples?

    5) Did the Jewish people leave the apostate Jewish church long before persecution began? Yes, they began to leave when Jesus "gathered out" those who would take the gospel to the world. Desire of Ages, 232, and even before this according to the following statement by Ellen White:

     

    "The recreant priests added licentiousness to the dark catalogue of their crimes; yet they still polluted by their presence the tabernacle of the Lord, and, laden with sin, dared to come into the presence of a holy God. As the men of Israel witnessed the corrupt course of the priests, they thought it safer for their families not to come up to the appointed place of worship. Many went from Shiloh with their peace disturbed, their indignation aroused, until they at last determined to offer their sacrifices themselves, concluding that this would be fully as acceptable to God, as to sanction in any manner the abominations practiced in the Sanctuary." E.G. White, The Signs of the Times, Vol. 1, p. 264, col. 3, December 1, 1881.

     

    Any teaching that contradicts this Ezekiel 9 PREFIGURE SCENARIO, is contradicting Ellen White and SCRIPTURE, because Ezekiel 5:9, proves that Ezekiel 9 is really PRIMARILY FULFILLED at the end-time when God does the worst thing He has ever done or will ever do again. The end-time interpretations of New Movement Adventism, violate this PREFIGURE SCENARIO stated by Ellen White and backed by Scripture. Choose ye this day whom ye will serve--Scripture and Ellen White, or apostate New Movement leaders.

     

    “The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-day Adventists, and that this reformation would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. Were this reformation to take place, what would result? The principles of truth that God in His wisdom has given to the remnant church, would be discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last fifty years would be accounted as error. A NEW ORGANIZATION would be established. Books of a NEW ORDER would be written. A system of intellectual philosophy would be introduced. The founders of this system would go into the cities, and do a wonderful work. The Sabbath of course, would be lightly regarded, as also the God who created it. Nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the NEW MOVEMENT. The leaders would teach that virtue is better than vice, but GOD BEING REMOVED, they would place their dependence on human power, which, without God, is worthless. Their foundation would be built on the sand, and storm and tempest would sweep away the structure. 
    Who has authority to begin such a [NEW] movement? We have our Bibles, we have our experience, attested to by the miraculous working of the Holy Spirit. We have a truth that admits of no compromise. Shall we not repudiate everything that is not in harmony with this truth?” E.G. White, Selected Messages, Vol. 1, 204, 205.

     

    "The things you have described as taking place in Indiana, the Lord has shown me would take place just before the close of probation. Every uncouth thing will be demonstrated. There will be shouting, with drums, music, and dancing. The senses of rational beings will become so confused that they cannot be trusted to make right decisions. And this is called the moving of the Holy Spirit. 
    The Holy Spirit never reveals itself in such methods, in such a bedlam of noise. This is an invention of Satan to cover up his ingenious methods for making of none effect the pure, sincere, elevating, ennobling, sanctifying truth for this time.

    "I saw the nominal church and nominal Adventists, like Judas, would betray us to the Catholics to obtain their influence to come against the truth. The saints then will be an obscure [hidden] people, little known to the Catholics; but the churches and nominal Adventists who know of our faith and customs (for they hate us on account of the Sabbath, for they could not refute it) will betray the saints and report them to the Catholics as those who disregard the institutions of the people; that is, that they keep the Sabbath and disregard Sunday. 
    Then the Catholics bid the Protestants to go forward, and issue a decree that all who will not observe the first day of the week, instead of the seventh day, shall be slain. And the Catholics, whose numbers are large, will stand by the Protestants. The Catholics will give their power to the image of the beast. And the Protestants will work as their mother worked before them to destroy the saints. But before their decree bring or bear fruit, the saints will be delivered by the Voice of God. Then I saw that Jesus' work in the sanctuary will soon be finished. And after His work there is finished, He will come to the door of the first apartment, and confess the sins of Israel upon the head of the Scape Goat. Then He will put on the garments of vengeance. Then the plagues will come upon the wicked, and they do not come till Jesus puts on that garment, and takes Hs place upon the great white cloud. Then while the plagues are falling, the Scape Goat is being led away. He makes a mighty struggle to escape, but he is held fast by the hand that leads him. If he should effect his escape, Israel would lose their lives. I saw that it would take time to lead away the Scape Goat into the land of forgetfulness after the sins were put on his head.
    The great white cloud I saw was not the holy place, but entirely separate from the holy and most holy place, entirely separate from the sanctuary. 
    Then the angel repeated these words, and said, ‘This is the time spoken of in Isaiah.’ He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor. He had no mediator between God and man, and these plagues could be withheld no longer, for Jesus had ceased to plead for Israel, and they were covered with the covering of the Almighty God, and they could live in the sight of a holy God, and those who were not covered, the plagues fell upon them, for they had nothing to shelter or protect them from the wrath of God.’” E.G. White, Dorchester, Maine, October 23, 1850, Spalding--Magan's Unpublished Mss.Testimonies, pp. 1, 2.

     

    COUNTERPART: “The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants, 'Pray not thou for this people [Jer. 7:16 and 11:14], neither lift up cry nor prayer for them; neither make intercession to me; for I will not hear thee.' The prophet thus describes the sins which had called forth this fearful denunciation: 'The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so; and what will ye do in the end thereof?' 'From the least of them even unto the greatest of them, every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest, every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace.' The apostles declare that this state of things will find its COUNTERPART in the last days. Many have a form of godliness, but in their daily life deny the power thereof. They have ceased to be convicted of their sins or alarmed at their state. They say in their hearts, 'The church is flourishing. Peace and spiritual prosperity are within her borders.' The words of the prophet may well apply to these self-deceivers, 'They have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them.’" E. G. White, Second Advent Review and Sabbath Herald, 11-07-82.

     

    COUNTERPART: "In the time of the Saviour, the Jews had so covered over the precious jewels of truth with the rubbish of tradition and fable, that it was impossible to distinguish the true from the false. The Saviour came to clear away the rubbish of superstition and long-cherished errors, and to set the jewels of God's word in the framework of truth. What would the Saviour do if he should come to us now as he did to the Jews? He would have to do a similar work in clearing away the rubbish of tradition and ceremony. The Jews were greatly disturbed when he did this work [As are SDAs today!]. They had lost sight of the original truth of God, but Christ brought it again to view. It is our work to free the precious truths of God from superstition and error." E.G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 2, 308.

     

    There is a modern COUNTERPART to the ancient apostate "chosen people" of God. That modern COUNTERPART is the people who claim to be the modern "chosen people" of God, the remnant, if you will.

     

    There are over 100 statements to the affect that SDA’s are repeating the history of ancient Israel. Here are just a few of them:

     

    "I have been shown that the spirit of the world is fast leavening the church. You are following the same path as did ancient Israel. There is the same falling away from your holy calling as God's peculiar people. You are having fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Your concord with unbelievers have provoked he Lord's displeasure. You know not the things that belong to your peace, and they are fast being hid from your eyes. [The very words applied to fallen Israel on page 17 of The Great Controversy] Your neglect to follow the light will place you in a more unfavorable position than the Jews upon whom Christ pronounced a woe." Testimonies, Vol. 5, pp. 75-76.

     

    "Like ancient Israel, the church has dishonored her God by departing from the light, neglecting her duties, and abusing her high and exalted privilege of being peculiar and holy in character. Her members have violated their covenant to live for God and him only. They have joined with the selfish and world-loving. Pride, the love of pleasure, and sin have been cherished, and CHRIST HAS DEPARTED. His Spirit has been quenched in the church. Satan works wide by side with professed Christians; yet they are so destitute of spiritual discernment that they do not detect him." E.G. White, Testimonies, Vol. 2, pp. 441-442.

     

    "Among the professed followers of Christ, there is the same pride, formalism, vainglory, selfishness, and OPPRESSION, that existed in the Jewish nation." E.G. White, Sketches from the Life of Paul, 251-252.

     

    "God's professed people are selfish and self-caring....They are idolaters, and are worse, in the sight of God, than the heathen, graven-image worshipers who have had no knowledge of a better way." Testimonies, Vol. 2, 441-442.

     

    Am I remiss in observing (reasoning) that worse than heathen, graven-image worshippers, means worse than Babylon? Especially after knowing the truth and a knowledge of a better way! By the above EGW statement it is flattery, presumption, and patronization error to refer to the apostate SDA church as Babylon! No, let it not be said that Ron Beaulieu believes the church is Babylon! I concur with Ellen White that God's professed people are worse than Babylonian heathen graven image idol worshippers! Worse than Catholics! Worse than the great Whore! Why? Because they had the light of truth and have wilfully united with the great whore in business partnership! Ellen White said we are never to unite with unbelievers in business partnership, let alone the great Whore of Babylon!

     

    Ezekiel chapter 5 says God’s people are worse than all the other nations around them. This chapter depicts why Ezekiel 9 occurs. How do we know that Ezekiel 5 applies at the end-time? Because in verse 9, God does the worse thing He ever does. Matthew 24:21 depicts the same thing as occurring at the end-time.

     

    Why did Ellen White not leave the church? Because there was still hope for the church to repent of playing the harlot until she committed the unpardonable sin act of re-joining Babylon’s associations, counsel’s, councils, girdings and confederacies (Isaiah 8:9-12) after knowing the truth of the second angel’s message and the Midnight Cry.

     

    "Now it is just EXACTLY as in the days of the Jews. When a message came in, why all the power of the leaders [such as some leaders on this forum] WAS PUT AGAINST IT, THAT IT SHOULD NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THE PEOPLE. Now, brethren, GO TO GOD FOR YOURSELVES, and on your knees plead with God...If God sends us light, let it come to us, and let no man close the door, or try to close it. Don't close it yourselves. Open the door of your heart and let the brilliant rays of light shine into your heart and into your mind. I pray you, let the Sun of Righteousness in." E.G. White, Manuscript Release #900, Manuscript 9, 1890. 1888 Materials, p. 541.

     

    "The day of God is right upon us, and the world has converted the church. Both are in harmony, and are acting upon a short-sited policy" E.G. White, General Conference Bulletin, 1st Quarter, 1900.

     

    "The leaven if godliness has not entirely lost its power. At the time when the danger and depression of the church are greatest, the little company who are standing in the light will be sighing and crying for the abominations that are done in the land. But MORE ESPECIALLY will their prayers arise in behalf of the church because ITS MEMBERS are doing after the manner of the world."Testimonies, Vol. 5, 209, 210.

     

    Here we have reference to "...when the danger and depression of the church are greatest..." This can only refer to the SDA church, because it is she who will experience such danger and depression. We find a little company (remnant) standing in the light and they are not MEMBERS, because the MEMBERS are doing after the manner of the world, and if the little company were MEMBERS of the church, they would be doing after the manner of the world also! Come, let us reason together. We were given the ability and license to so reason.

     

    “We must as a people arouse and cleanse the camp of Israel. Licentiousness, unlawful intimacy, and unholy practices are coming in among us in a large degree...We are in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted and filled with every foul spirit, a cage for every unclean and hateful bird, and will we be clear unless we make decided movements to cure the existing evil?” E. G. White, Manuscript Releases No. 449,pp. 17, 18.

     

    If Ellen White saw the church going through with a blanket approval, such warnings as stated above are superfluous, foolish, and self-contradictory.

     

    "It is IMPOSSIBLE for you to unite with those who are corrupt, and still remain pure. (II Corinthians 6:14-15 quoted). God and Christ and the heavenly host would have men know that if he unites with the corrupt he will become corrupt." E. G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 4, p. 137.

     

    This statement is also foolish, superfluous and redundant, if we cannot judge what Ellen White brands as corrupt. If judging corruptness is only idle and ill conceived criticism, based on focusing on mere flaws, defects and weaknesses, then we should have remained with Rome, and should never have exposed the abominations of Babylon! Jesus and the disciples should have remained in the apostate Jewish church in lieu of separating from it.

     

    "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, Fundamentals of Christian Education, 482.

     

    If any church should link itself with unbelievers, we are to come out from them and be separate. The instruction is clear. Notwithstanding the SDA church's links with the ecumenical movement, it has linked in PARTNERSHIP with the Catholics at their hospital in Colorado. Every MEMBER of the church is responsible for this corrupt liaison with unbelievers. This act alone calls for separation, for the bride of Christ is not defiled with women or fallen churches, Rev. 14:4, and Jeremiah 11:15, as follows:

     

    "What hath my beloved [bride] to do in mine house [church sanctuary], seeing she [the professing church] hath wrought lewdness with many [fallen women churches], and the holy flesh is passed from thee [the church]? when thou doest evil, then thou rejoicest [the apostate churches celebrate]." Jeremiah 11:15.

     

    "Worldly policy is taking the place of true piety and wisdom that comes from above, and God will remove His prospering hand from the conference. Shall theark of the covenant be removed from this people? Shall idols be smuggled in? Shall false principles and false precepts be brought into the sanctuary? Shall antichrist be respected? Shall the true doctrines and principles given us of God, which have made us what we are, be ignored?.... This is directly where the enemy, through blinded, unconsecrated men, is leading us." E. G. White,Manuscript 29, 1890.

     

    "The Bible Prophets Wrote for Our Time.--Never are we absent from the mind of God. God is our joy and our salvation. Each of the ancient prophets spoke less for their own time than for ours, so that their prophesying is in force for us. 'Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come' (! Cor. 10:11). 'Not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into' (1 Peter 1:12).'" E.G. White, Selected Messages, Vol. 3, p. 338.

     

    The Spirit of Prophecy Prophesied Final End of the SDA Church Militant

                                  

    "Jesus sends HIS PEOPLE a message of warning to prepare them for his coming. To the prophet John was made known the closing work in the great plan of man's redemption. He beheld an angel flying 'in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him for the hour of his Judgment is come and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters [Rev. 14:6, 7.].

    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. They had failed to preserve their connection with God, and had REFUSED THE LIGHT FROM HEAVEN therefore they WERE NOT of the number described by the apostle Paul: 'But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day we are not of the night nor of darkness' [1 Thess. 5:4, 5]. 

    The watchmen upon the walls of Zion should be the first to catch the tidings of the Saviour's advent, the first to lift their voices to proclaim him near, the first to warn the people to prepare for his coming. But they were at ease, dreaming of peace and safety, while the people were asleep in their sins. Jesus saw HIS CHURCH, like the barren fig-tree, covered with pretentious leaves, yet destitute of precious fruit. There was a boastful observance of the forms of religion, while the spirit of true humility, penitence and faith--which alone could render the service acceptable to God--was lacking. Instead of the graces of the Spirit, therewere manifested pride, formalism, vainglory, selfishness, oppression. A BACKSLIDING CHURCH closed their eyes to the signs of the times. God did nor forsake them, or suffer his faithfulness to fail but they departed from him, and SEPARATED THEMSELVES from his love. As they REFUSED TO COMPLY WITH THE CONDITIONShis promises were NOT FULFILLED to them."  E.G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy,  vol. 4, pp. 199-200 [The 1884 edition of The Great Controversy, 199, 200].


    “The Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband” (Revelation 21:2). This is the city that Abraham looked for in faith (Hebrews 11:10). It is the place where God will dwell with His people forever (Revelation 21:3). Inhabitants of this celestial city will have all tears wiped away (Revelation 21:4).
Jeremiah 3:17
"At that time they will call Jerusalem 'The Throne of the LORD,' and all the nations will be gathered to it, to Jerusalem, for the name of the LORD; nor will they walk anymore after the stubbornness of their evil heart.

Jeremiah 8:19
Behold, listen! The cry of the daughter of my people from a distant land: "Is the LORD not in Zion? Is her King not within her?" "Why have they provoked Me with their graven images, with foreign idols?"

Jeremiah 14:9
"Why are You like a man dismayed, Like a mighty man who cannot save? Yet You are in our midst, O LORD, And we are called by Your name; Do not forsake us!"

Jeremiah 23:6
"In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell securely; And this is His name by which He will be called, 'The LORD our righteousness.'

Isaiah 24:23
Then the moon will be abashed and the sun ashamed, For the LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, And His glory will be before His elders.

Revelation 22:3
No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be within the city, and His servants will worship Him.

  • "Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment" Ecclesiastes 9:8.

    Luke 7:46
    You did not anoint My head with oil, but she has anointed My feet with perfume.

    Revelation 3:4
    But you do have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments [daily choices conformed to the law of God through the Son of God], and because they are worthy, they will walk with Me in white [truth].

    Psalm 23:5
    You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows.

Isaiah 1:26
"Then I will restore your judges as at the first, And your counselors as at the beginning; After that you will be called the city of righteousness, A faithful city."

Eze 5:3  Thou shalt also take thereof a few in number, and bind them in thy skirts.

Those who believe, practice and live under the Third Angel's message (1846 until Probation closes for the House of God at the Sunday Law) and keep the 7th day Sabbath ARE a part of the 144,000. Any departure from the 1830-1894 truths setup by the early SDA protestant pioneers is drinking the wine of Babylon.

“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:

When God says "It Is Done" and Christ stands up and says "It is Finished":

Those who are living upon the earth when the intercession of Christ shall cease in the sanctuary above, are to stand in the sight of a holy God without a mediator. Their robes must be spotless, their characters must be purified from sin by the blood of sprinkling. Through the grace of God and their own diligent effort, they must be conquerors in the battle with evil. While the investigative Judgment is going forward in Heaven, while thesins of penitent believers are being removed from the sanctuary, there is to be a special work of purification, of putting away of sin, among God's people upon earth. This work is more clearly presented in the messages of Revelation 14. GC88 425.1

When this work shall have been accomplished, the followers of Christ will be ready for his appearing. “Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in former years.” [Malachi 3:4.] Then the church which our Lord at his coming is to receive to himself will be “a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing.” [Ephesians 5:27.] Then she will look forth “as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners.” [Song of Solomon 6:10.] GC88 425.2 Besides the coming of the Lord to his temple, Malachi also foretells his second advent, his coming for the execution of the judgment, in these words: “And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his GC88 425.3The Great Controversy 1888, p. 425.1 (Ellen G.

​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.

“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” Last Day Events, p. 143.1

The 144,000 are those who were the early Protestant SDA and those who TODAY believe and do LIKE THEM! Reading and studying the early pioneer writings as Ellen White warned us to do in 1905! Let the dead speak! Learn what is the rainbow of God's glory here.

Who Was this Man Melchizedek? Melchizedek represents the 144,000.
He was the king of Salem which later became Jerusalem (which means "city of peace"). Abraham gave Melchizedek his tithe as described in the first book of Scripture. Melchizedek represents the 144,000, who as Kings and Priests of the Royal Second Marriage covenant (the first being the Ten Commandments), the second being the 1843 and 1850 tables/charts/two breasts/two paps that God's people feed upon, the Three Angel's messages, the two wings are the two charts, the two eagle wings that God teaches His People how to fly.

Ellen White: "I believe the Sanctuary, to be cleansed at the end of the 2300 days, is the New Jerusalem Temple (144,000 being numbered since October 22, 1844), of which Christ is a minister. The Lord shew me in vision, more than one year ago, that Brother Crosier had the true light, on the cleansing of the Sanctuary, &c; and that it was his will, that Brother C. should write out the view which he gave us in the Day-Star, Extra, February 7, 1846. I feel fully authorized by the Lord, to recommend that Extra, to every saint" Ellen White, A Word to the Little Flock, p. 12.8 Early Writings, p. xix.2.

Here is a link to the Sanctuary Message by Brother Crosier recommended by God Himself:

The rock (144,000 giving the three angel's anti-Catholic doctrine messages) that is cut out without hands that strikes the image of Daniel 2 on the feet has been falling since October 22, 1844 and continues to fall until probation closes for the world:


Revelation 21:2
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

More of my study notes here:

Queen Esther in the Bible also represents the 144,000. Remember? She was without Father and Mother as well? Orphaned? Jesus promises to come to us, to NOT leave us orphans! John 14:17!

Queen Vashti represents the church militant that refused to show her beauty at the command of the King. Modern Adventists refuse to show the beauty of the great truths given to them from 1840-1894 to the Princes of the Kingdom!

Mordecai also represents the 144,000. 

The THRONE of GOD and the Lamb is the 144,000!
Revelation 22:3
No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be within the city, and His servants will worship Him.


Some of the 144,000 seats on the 144,000 train are taken:

 Mrs. Hastings occupies one of those seats on the 144,000 train.  (W. C. White wrote from Santa Helena, California, in 1929, as follows: “Now to the question, Did Sister White teach that those who died in the message since 1844 and of whom it is said, ‘Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth,’ that they shall be members of the 144,000?“I can assure you my brother, that this was the belief, and the teaching of Ellen G. White. Many times I have heard her make statements to this effect, and I am in possession of a letter to Brother Hastings who is mentioned on page 237 of Life Sketches in which she says plainly that his wife who had recently died would be a member of the 144,000. “In a letter recently received from a brother in Reno, Nevada, reference is made to a statement in Elder Loughborough’s book found on page 91 [31] in which it is reported that Sister White said: ‘Those who died in the faith will be among the 144,000. I am clear on this matter.’ “And I testify, my brother, that is in perfect harmony with her writings, her saying and her teachings throughout the years of her ministry.” W. C. White, letter written at Santa Helena, Calif., April 18, 1929.)
   
   
   
 

THOSE LIVING UNDER THE THIRD ANGEL'S MESSAGE CAN BECOME A PART OF THE 144,000 AS WERE THE EARLY SDA PIONEERS OF THE ADVENTIST MOVEMENT:


God is waiting for the number of 144,000 to be made up, and THEN He will come! God is waiting for 144,000 to believe in the truth about God, the 7th day Sabbath, and follow the Son of God into the Sanctuary in Heaven into the Most Holy Place in the Third Heaven by faith, this literal number includes ALL of the faithful, keen, noble and true protestant early SDA pioneers! And then those who from 1846 and onward who live, die during the time of their priestly service on earth helping to give the Third Angel's message can become one of this elite group, this special force of God, the Bride of Christ, the New Jerusalem forever! This number is made up from those who have lived and are living and giving today the Third Angel's Message found in Rev 14:9-12. God is waiting for 144,000 Kings and Priests to be made up by those who believe, live and give the Three Angel's Messages found in Revelation 14:6-12. The exact same Third angel's message as given by our Historical Protestant Early SDA Pioneers. We are to repeat, republish the articles and books written by the early Protestant SDA pioneers from 1840-1894.


Matthew 27:50-53:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Matthew 28:2 "And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

At the beginning of the 7th Plague, God the Father speaks and says IT IS DONE! A great earthquake happens and MANY BODIES OF THE  SAINTS WHICH SLEPT CAME OUT OF THEIR GRAVES.... The voice of God shakes the powers of Heaven saying IT IS DONE.

Video about the 144,000 not symbolic but a literal number: The 144,000 : Historic SDA Teaching Unveiled: by A.C. Sas

Joel 2:10 "The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining".

Revelation 16:16-21King James Version (KJV)

16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, [God the Father 1 Cor 8:6] saying, It is done18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Psalm 46:6-7(KJV) "The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice ["It is done" Rev 16:17], the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah."

"With shouts of triumph, jeering, and imprecation, throngs of evil men are about to rush upon their prey, when lo, a dense blackness, deeper than the darkness of the night, falls upon the earth. Then a rainbow, shining with the glory from the throne of God, spans the heavens, and seems to encircle each praying company. The angry multitudes are suddenly arrested. Their mocking cries die away. The objects of their murderous rage are forgotten. With fearful forebodings they gaze upon the symbol of God’s covenant, and long to be shielded from its overpowering brightness... In the midst of the angry heavens is one clear space ofindescribable glory, whence comes the voice of God like the sound of many waters, saying. “It is done.” That voice shakes the heavens and the earth. There is a mighty earthquake, “such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake and so great.” ... 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.” 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.... ARSH March 13, 1900, p. 169.22


“All who have died in faith under 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,' 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” –{The Spirit of Prophecy Volume 4, p. 454.1}.


those who have fallen asleep, having the seal of God [SIGN, STAMP, MARK, SEAL, SIGNET RING], will have a special resurrection, and will be called forth to hear the covenant of peace, and to behold their Lord as He comes in the clouds of heaven” –{Stephen Haskell, 1905 SNH, SSP 252.1}.

And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow [was] upon his head, and his face [was] as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: Revelation 10:1

The Sabbath is like drawing a special covering over God's people to protect them.

"I was pointed to those who claim (professed/say Rev 2:9; 3:9) to be Adventists, but who reject the present truth (truths given in 1841, '42, '43 and 1844 (15MR Ltr 75 1905)), and saw that they were crumbling and that the hand of the Lord was in their midst to divide and scatter them now in the gathering time, so that the precious jewels among them, who have formerly been deceived, may have their eyes opened to see their true state. And now when the truth is presented to them by the Lord's messengers, they are prepared to listen, and see its beauty and harmony, and to leave their former associates and errors, embrace the precious truth (truths given in 1841, '42, '43 and 1844 (15MR Ltr 75 1905)and stand where they can define their position" EW 69.2.

"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).

"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 lawEarly Writings, p. 285.1

"Soon we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus’ coming. The living saints, 144,000 in numberknew and understood the voicewhile the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquakeEarly Writings, p. 14.1.

"Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore" Ezekiel 37:26.

“These having been translated from the earth, from among the living, are counted as ‘the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb.’ (The Sabbath keepers resurrected to eternal life will surely be among the living at Christ’s second coming.) ‘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.” That trouble of the nations will be under the sixth plague; and it is at that time, according to Daniel 12:1, that the (QSM 26.1) partial resurrection will take place, bringing up the sealed Sabbath keepers. This will be when the seventh plague is yet to come. Of the situation at that time, we read in “Experience and Views,” page 29: “These plagues enrage the wicked against the righteous; they thought that we had brought the judgments of God upon them, and that if they could rid the earth of us, the plagues would then be stayed. A decree went forth to slay the saints, which caused them to cry day and night for deliverance. This was the time of Jacob’s trouble. Then all the saints cried out with anguish of spirit, and were delivered by the voice of God. The 144,000 triumphed. Their faces were lighted up with the glory of God.” We have already seen that this glorification takes place with the resurrected Sabbath keepers, as well as those who had not died, when God delivers the everlasting covenant on those who had honored Him by keeping His Sabbath. QSM 26.1

Of this scene we read in “Spiritual Gifts,” page 143: “I saw a writing, copies of which were scattered in different parts of the land, giving orders that unless the saints should yield their peculiar faith, give up the Sabbath and observe the first day of the week, the people were at liberty, after a certain time, to put them to death.... Satan wished to have the QSM 27.1" Questions on the Sealing Message, p. 26.1.

The Spirit of Prophecy Identifies Philadelphia as the 144,000

"And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These things saith He that is holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth, ad no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works" behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it; for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept My word, and hast not denied My name. 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. Because thou hast 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. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go no more out: and 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. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Rev. 3:7-13. "These are they [those who live and give the 3 angel's messages Rev 14:6-12] which were not defiled with women (false doctrines of the papacy); for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth (into the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary). These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruit unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile; for they are without fault before the throne of God. Rev. 14:4, 5." E.G. White, Early Writings, p. 30.


Matthew 24:36King James Version (KJV)

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.


An old English version of the passage reads, “But that day and hour no man maketh known, neither the angels which are in Heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” This is the correct reading, according to several of the ablest critics of the age. The wordknow is used in the same sense here that it is by Paul in 1 Corinthians 2:2: “For I determined not to know [make known] anything among you save Jesus Christ and him crucified.” Men will not make known the day and hour, angels will not make it known, neither will the Son; but the Father will make it known. OFH1 56.1

Says Campbell, “Macknight argues that the term know is here used as a causative, in the Hebrew sense of the conjugation hiphil, that is, to make known... His [Christ’s] answer is just equivalent to saying, The Father will make it known when it pleases him; but he has not authorized man, angel, or the Son, to make it known. Just in this sense Paul uses the term know1 Corinthians 2:2: “I came to you making known the testimony of God; for I determined to make known nothing among you but a crucified Christ.” OFH1 56.2

Albert Barnes, in his Notes on the Gospels, says, “Others have said that the verb rendered knoweth means sometimes to makeknown, or to reveal, and that the passage means, ‘that day and hour none maketh known, neither the angels, nor the Son, but the Father.” It is true the word has sometimes that meaning, as 1 Corinthians 2:2.” OFH1 56.3

The Father will make known the time, He gave the period of the flood to Noah, which well represents the proclamation of the second advent, given in connection with the evidence of the termination of the periods of Daniel, during the great Advent movement of 1840-44. OFH1 56.4

And when the patriarch’s work of warning and building was finished, God said to him, “Come thou and all thy house into the ark.” “For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights.” So when the waiting, watching, weeping, toiling time shall be finished, and the saints shall all be sealed, and shut in with God, then will the voice of the Father, from Heaven make known the definite time. OFH1 57.1 OFH1 56.4Our Faith and Hope, No. 1, p. 56.1 (James S. White).


“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 ["It is done" Rev 16:17] 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 worshipped at the saint’s feet. FSG 150.1“ Ellen G. Harmon. FSG 150.2 “Portland, April 6, 1846.”To the Little Remnant Scattered Abroad, April 6, 1846 FSG 150.3" The Fruitage of Spiritual Gifts, p. 150.1 (Lewis H. Christian).

"The voice of God is heard from heaven, declaring the day and hour of Jesus’ coming and delivering the everlasting covenant to his people.... ARSH March 13, 1900, p. 169.23.


“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 [via the counterfeit Trinity of God's], 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, p. 12.2).


Isaiah 60:14 "The children of your oppressors will come bowing before youall who despise you will bow down at your feet and will call you the City of the LORD, Zion of the Holy One of Israel."


“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.


This is the New Jerusalem coming down made white in the blood of the lamb to go forth and proclaim the Sabbath more fully...their characters are made white for eternity from then on...

"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 worship the TRINTY! oh how sad)This class (foolish virgins) are represented also by the stony-ground hearersThey receive the word with readiness, but they fail of assimilating its principlesChrist’s Object Lessons, p. 411.1 .


A special GROUP of special people - why do they arise before the general resurrection:

 "And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake (special resurrection at the beginning of the 7th plague -15 days or "one hour" before Christ comes when God the Father says "It is Done!" Rev 16:17), some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt" Rev 12:2.


Those who die under the UMBRELLA of the THIRD angel's message and keeping the Sabbath receive the SPECIAL BLESSING is the SPECIAL SEVENTH DAY SABBATH "blessing" to hear the Father saying the day and hour of Christ's Second coming in this special resurrection and see Jesus coming!


"And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth (Those who die under the Third angel's message Rev 14:9-12): Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them (1830-1894)Revelation 14:13. The three angel's messages are about worshiping the true God! These people believe the truth about God! They don't believe in the trinity of gods! They have the Father's name written in their forehead! Rev 7:3-4 "Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel".


The trinity a mark of the beast doctrine is a disqualifies them for being one of the 144k.



Not every SABBATH KEEPER gets the SEAL of God, only those who have the NAME of GOD written upon their forehead and that is called "THE LORD IS THERE" "It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the city from that day shall be, The LORD is there" Ezekiel 48:35.

You also think, that Michael stood up, and the time of trouble commenced, in the spring of 1844. WLF 12.3

The Lord has shown me in vision, that Jesus rose up, and shut the door, and entered the Holy of Holies, at the 7th month 1844; but Michael's standing up (Daniel 12:1) to deliver his people, is in the future. WLF 12.4

This, will not take place, until Jesus has finished his priestly office in the Heavenly Sanctuary, and lays off his priestly attire, and puts on his most kingly robes, and crown, to ride forth on the cloudy chariot, to “thresh the heathen in anger,” and deliver his people. WLF 12.5

Then Jesus will have the sharp sickle in his hand, (Revelation 14:14) and then the saints will cry day and night to Jesus on the cloud, to thrust in his sharp sickle and reap. WLF 12.6

This, will be the time of Jacob's trouble, (Jeremiah 30:5-8) out of which, the saints will be delivered by the voice of God. WLF 12.7

I believe the Sanctuary, to be cleansed at the end of the 2300 days, is the New Jerusalem Temple, of which Christ is a minister. The Lord shew me in vision, more than one year ago, that Brother Crosier had the true light, on the cleansing of the Sanctuary, &c; and that it was his will, that Brother C. should write out the view which he gave us in the Day-Star, Extra, February 7, 1846. I feel fully authorized by the Lord, to recommend that Extra, to every saint. WLF 12.8


I pray that these lines may prove a blessing to you, and all the dear children who may read them. WLF 12.9

Soon there appears in the east a small black cloud, about half the size of a man’s hand. It is the cloud which surrounds the Saviour, and which seems in the distance to be shrouded in darkness. The ARSH March 13, 1900, p. 169.24The Advent Review and Sabbath Herald, vol. 77 March 13, 1900, page 169 par. 22.


holy men from creation to the cross they are of different stature and they were resurrected when Jesus was the earthquaking shook their tombs open so they must be the 24 elders, thanks for that good quote from the Great Controversy 1858

Many acknowledge Jehovah in their minds, and many worship Him outwardly; only the few pass through Gethsemane with the Christ; but those who do know the realities of spiritual life, receive the name of the Father in their foreheads. These are the one hundred and forty-four thousand, -- the chosen company, who reveal to the fullest extent the depths of redeeming love. John saw these surrounding the Saviour on the Mount of God, -- "the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the North," where Satan once stood, and where he attempted to raise a throne for himself. The one hundred and forty-four thousand occupy the place once filled by Lucifer and his angels. Oh what a commentary to the universe on the glorious triumph of truth over error! of love over selfishness! p. 247,. These men were redeemed from the earth, from among men, -- the first fruits unto God and the Lamb. They have been snatched as brands from the burning. "They were not defiled with women; for they are virgins." The prophet Isaiah, in describing the condition of the churches in the days when the sealing work is in progress, says: "In that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach." The church is represented by a woman; and the relation of Christ to the true church, as the relation of the husband to his wife. The husband gives his name to the wife, and supplies her food and raiment; but apostate churches, while claiming the name of Christ, (Christian), eat their own bread and wear their own apparel, spurning the instruction Christ has given concerning the food and raiment of His bride. But the redeemed will be as virgins, undefiled, and Christ will present them to the Father as chaste virgins. During the last days the earth will be drunk with the wine of fornication offered by Babylon and her daughters, and the sealing angel places the name of the Father on the foreheads of those who turn from the world and all it offers. It will be known that bands of angels overshadow those who are pure in soul. "The Lord will create upon every [such] dwelling place of Mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for above all, the glory shall be a covering." In the secret of His tabernacle He will hide them till the indignation be overpast" Stephen N. Haskell, Seer of Patmos, p. 249,.

"God bids us give our time and strength to the work of preaching to the people the messages that stirred men and women in 1843 and 1844.  {MR760 30.1}(July 4th 1907)

 The warning has come: Nothing is to be allowed to come in that will disturb the foundation of the faith upon which we have been building ever since the message came in1842, 1843, and 1844. I was in this message, and ever since I have been standing before the world, true to the light that God has given us. We do not propose to take our feet off the platform on which they were placed as day by day we sought the Lord with earnest prayer, seeking for light. Do you think that I could give up the light that God has given me? It is to be as the Rock of Ages" (GCB April 6th1903).

       We have, as had John, a message to bear of the things which we have seen and heard. God is not giving us a new message. We are to proclaim the message that in 1843 and 1844 brought us out of the other churches. We need the Holy Spirit to kindle in our hearts the zeal and earnestness that were then seen among God's people. I thank the Lord that there are still living a few who can remember those days, and who know whereof they speak.(RH Jan 19th 1905)

       The truths that we received in 1841, '42, '43, and '44 are now to be studied and proclaimedThe messages of the first, second, and third angels will in the future be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will be given with earnest determination and in the power of the Spirit.(15MR Ltr 75 1905)

        All the messages given from 1840-1844 are to be made forcible NOWfor there are many people who have lost their bearingsThe messages are to go to all the churches.  {21MR 437.1}(LTR 54 1906)


(1900) “Had the purpose of God been carried out by His people in giving to the world the message of mercy [
Historical SDA Protestant Pioneer Writings by James S. White, Stephen N. Haskell, Joseph Bates, Otis Nichols, and more], 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).

(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).

(1901) “We may have to remain here in this world because of insubordination many more years, as did the children of Israel; but for Christ's sake, His people should not add sin to sin by charging God with the consequence of their own wrong course of action” (Evangelism, p. 696).

(1903) “I know that if the people of God had preserved a living connection with Him, if they had obeyed His Word, they would today be in the heavenly Canaan” (General Conference Bulletin, March 30, 1903).

(1904) “If all who had labored unitedly in the work of 1844 had received the third angel's message and proclaimed it in the power of the Holy Spirit, the Lord would have wrought mightily with their efforts. A flood of light would have been shed upon the world. Years ago the inhabitants of the earth would have been warned, the closing work would have been completed, and Christ would have come for the redemption of His people” (Testimonies for the Church, vol. 8, p. 115).

(1909) “If every soldier of Christ had done his duty, if every watchman on the walls of Zion had given the trumpet a certain sound [historical Three Angel's Messages as given by our early SDA pioneers to be repeated as the Loud Cry, the Latter Rain by the reprinting, repeating of the early Protestant SDA's books, articles and sermons!], the world might ere this have heard the message of warning. But the work is years behind. While men have slept, Satan has stolen a march upon us” (Testimonies for the Church, vol. 9, p. 29).

The 144,000 are comprised of those who live and give the Third Angel's Message as the early SDA pioneers taught it from 1840-1894 during the time of our priestly service in the Heavenly Sanctuary until probation closes for the House of God, the Adventist movement. God is choosing a Bride for His Son for eternity from among the Advent movement, those who live and give the Third Angel's Message found in Rev 14:9-12 from the Third Angel's message onward till the close of probation at the Sunday law for the House of God. Learn more about what each pioneer wrote about it here, because Ellen White says we are to “Let the aged men who were pioneers in our work speak plainly, and let those who are dead speak also, by the reprinting of their articles in our periodicals”—Ellen White, Manuscript 62, 1905, cited in “The Integrity of the Sanctuary Message.”

Ellen White warns: “We are to REPEAT THE WORDS of the pioneers in our work, who knew what it cost to search for the truth as for hidden treasure, and who labored to lay the foundation of our workThe word given me is, Let that which these men have written in the past be reproduced”—Ellen White, Review and Herald, May 25, 1905.

Daniel's rejected, the 1888 Righteousness of Christ message and 1903 message not to form a Roman hierarchy system conferences that rejected the messages given to them] to be given to all parts of the world. It is to be the harvest message["The message of the fall of Babylon, as given by the second angel [Rev. 14:8], is repeated, with the additional mention of the corruption's which have been entering the [SDA] churches since 1844. The work of this angel comes in at the right time to join in the last great work of the Third Angel's [Rev. 14:9-12 anti-Pope's anti-trinity, anti-Sunday, anti-Catholic doctrines] message as it swells to a loud cry" —Early Writtings, p. 277.1.] and the whole earth will be lighted with the glory of God.  The Lord has this one [last] call of mercy to [give to] the world, but the perversity of men diverts the work from its true bearing, and the light has to struggle amid the darkness of men [like Jesuits Le Roy Froom, Neal C. Wilson, Ted N. C. Wilson, Clifford Goldstein, learn more here about this] who feel themselves competent to do a work that God has not appointed them to do." Last Day Events, p 78 (Letter 86, June 18, 1900).

"Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore" Ezekiel 37:26.


“All who have died in faith under 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 (144,000). 'They also which pierced Him,' those that mocked and derided Christ's dying agonies, and the most violent opposers of his truth and his people (144,000), are raised to behold him in his glory, and to see the honor placed upon the loyal and obedient” – The Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 4, p. 454.1 (Ellen G. White).

"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 lawEarly Writings, p. 285.1.

"Soon we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus’ coming. The living saints, 144,000 in numberknew and understood the voicewhile the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquakeEarly Writings, p. 14.1.

those who have fallen asleep, having the seal of God [SIGN, STAMP, MARK, SEAL, SIGNET RING], will have a special resurrection, and will be called forth to hear the covenant of peace, and to behold their Lord as He comes in the clouds of heaven” –{Stephen Haskell, Seer of Patmos, p. 253, 1905 SNH, SSP 252.1}.

Elder James White understood that those who are raised at the partial resurrection are not raised immortal. He wrote:

“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 to make up that number. They are raised to mortal life shortly before Christ comes, and . . . are changed to immortality when Christ appears” RH 9/23/1880.

144,000 not symbolic but a literal numberThe 144,000 : Historic SDA Teaching Unveiled : A.C. Sas

Inline image 1The 144,000 who have died under the Three Angel's Messages are raised to life at the beginning of the 7th plague AND they also which pierced him - special enemies of Christ will be raised up at this special resurrection to see Jesus coming in the clouds of Heaven as King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Romans 11:25, "I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in."

There are two Greek words in this verse that lend critical support to a proper understanding. The first is translated “full number”. It’s a nautical term that describes the pre-determined number of sailors necessary to operate a ship. Until the ship had its full number of crew members, it could not sail. This is why ship captains sometimes got unsuspecting  men drunk and kidnapped them late at night and then set sail immediately. And the second, translated “come in” is also a nautical term that described the ship’s arrival at its intended destination.

By using these terms, Paul was saying that the hardening of Israel’s heart will not be fully removed until the Church reaches its predetermined number: 144,000! There’s nothing arbitrary about God’s action here.  He has already determined the number and will take the Church to its intended destination as soon as that number is reached.

Remember the song? I want to be in that number when the Saint's go marching in....

It is EXCITING!!!! We really live in the END TIMES! The prophets of the Bible wanted to live in this time.... we must put God first and trust in Him completely or we will be LOST! 

Like Elijah and John the Baptist before apostate Israel, the 144,000 stand before the whole world calling for repentance and a return to the worship of the Creator during the time of their Priestly Service in the Heavenly Sanctuary during the span of their lifetime. Compare to how the Levites were chosen by tribe and how they served during their lifetimes.


"Those who die under the third angel's message (1846 onward until probation closes for the house of God, the Adventist movement at the Sunday law) are a part of the 144,000there 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.

Remember the vision where Ellen White was looking for the Advent people in the world? "I seemed to be surrounded with light, and to be rising higher and higher from the earth. I turned to look for the advent people in the world, but could not find them, when a voice said to me, "Look again, and look a little higher." At this, I raised my eyes, and saw a straight and narrow path, cast up high above the worldOn this path the advent people were traveling to the city [of God] which was at the farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the beginning of the path, which an angel told me was the "midnight cry." [See Matthew 25:6.] This light shone all along the path, and gave light for their feet, so that they might not stumble.Selected Messages Book 1, p. 62.1

All along this path - from 1844 until probation closes for the Adventist church at the Sunday law, the 144,000 - are being chosen by God Himself as a Bride for His Son. A Royal Priesthood, in charge of giving the two tables/two charts found in Habakkuk 2, the two charts -the 1843 and 1850 charts, who are similar to Levite leaders, carrying the Ark of the Covenant on their shoulders, their MINDS JOINED TO CHRIST THROUGH CLAIMING THE BIBLE PROMISES as leaves off the tree of life, to live the truth in their daily lives, the church triumphant or the Bride of Christ on this narrow path who have been and are being chosen by God Himself until the number of 144,000 (12,000 from each tribe) are made up and ENTER by the FAITH of CHRIST INTO THE CITY OF GOD! Which IS the TEMPLE of GOD, His Body, His Bride who calls to the Ten sleepy Virgins to WAKE UP AND COME OUT OF ALL 501c3 churches INTO THE CITY OF GOD!

"A glorious light then rested down upon these companies, to enlighten all who would receive it. Some of those who were in darkness received the light and rejoicedOthers resisted the light from heaven, saying that it was sent to lead them astrayThe light passed away from them, and they were left in darkness. Those who had received the light from Jesus joyfully cherished the increase of precious light which was shed upon them. Their faces beamed with holy joy, while their gaze was directed upward to Jesus with intense interest, and their voices were heard in harmony with the voice of the angel, “Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come.” As they raised this cry, I saw those who were in darkness thrusting them with side and with shoulder. Then many who cherished the sacred light, broke the cords which confined them and stood out separated from those companies. As they were doing this, men belonging to the different companies and revered by them passed through, some with pleasing words, and others with wrathful looks and threatening gestures, and fastened the cords which were weakening. These men were constantly saying, “God is with us. We stand in the light. We have the truth.” I inquired who these men were, and was told that they were ministers and leading men who had rejected the light themselves, and were unwilling that others should receive it.

I saw those who cherished the light looking upward with ardent desire, expecting Jesus to come and take them to Himself. Soon a cloud passed over them, and their faces were sorrowful. I inquired the cause of this cloud and was shown that it was their disappointment. The time when they expected their Saviour had passed, and Jesus had not come. As discouragement settled upon the waiting ones, the ministers and leading men whom I had before noticed, rejoiced, and all those who had rejected the light triumphed greatly, while Satan and his evil angels also exulted.

Then I heard the voice of another angel saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen!” A light shone upon those desponding ones, and with ardent desires for His appearing, they again fixed their eyes upon Jesus. I saw a number of angels conversing with the one who had cried, “Babylon is fallen,” and these united with him in the cry, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him.” The musical voices of these angels seemed to reach everywhere. An exceedingly bright and glorious light shone around those who had cherished the light which had been imparted to them. Their faces shone with excellent glory, and they united with the angels in the cry, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh.” As they harmoniously raised the cry among the different companies, those who rejected the light pushed them and with angry looks scorned and derided them. But angels of God wafted their wings over the persecuted ones, while Satan and his angels were seeking to press their darkness around them, to lead them to reject the light from heaven.

Then I heard a voice saying to those who had been pushed and derided, “Come out from among them, and touch not the unclean.” In obedience to this voice, a large number broke the cords which bound them, and leaving the companies that were in darkness, joined those who had previously gained their freedom (early SDA pioneers from 1840-1894), and joyfully united their voices with them. I heard the voice of earnest, agonizing prayer from a few who still remained with the companies that were in darkness. The ministers and leading men were passing around in these different companies, fastening the cords more firmly; but still I heard this voice of earnest prayer. Then I saw those who had been praying reach out their hands for help toward the united company who were free, rejoicing in God. The answer from them, as they earnestly looked to heaven, and pointed upward, was, “Come out from among them, and be separate.” I saw individuals struggling for freedom, and at last they broke the cords that bound them. They resisted the efforts which were made to fasten the cords tighter and refused to heed the repeated assertions: “God is with us.” “We have the truth with us.” Persons were continually leaving the companies that were in darkness and joining the free company, who appeared to be in an open field raised above the earth. Their gaze was directed upward, the glory of God rested upon them, and they joyfully shouted His praise. They were closely united and seemed to be wrapped in the light of heaven. Around this company were some who came under the influence of the light, but who were not particularly united to the company. All who cherished the light shed upon them were gazing upward with intense interest, and Jesus looked upon them with sweet approbation. They expected Him to come and longed for His appearing. They did not cast one lingering look to earth. But again a cloud settled upon the waiting ones, and I saw them turn their weary eyes downward. I inquired the cause of this change. Said my accompanying angel, “They are again disappointed in their expectations. Jesus cannot yet come to earth. They must endure greater trials for His sake. They must give up errors and traditions received from men and turn wholly to God and His WordThey must be purified, made white, and tried. Those who endure that bitter trial will obtain an eternal victory” Early Writings, p. 240.2.


 I have stated before them that, from what was shown me, but a small number of those now professing to believe the truth, would eventually be saved, not because they cannot be saved, but because they will not be saved in God's own appointed way. The way marked out by our divine Lord is too narrow and the gate too strait to admit them with their grasp upon the world, or while cherishing selfishness, or anything wrong. There is no room for these, and yet there are but few who will consent to part with these things, that they may pass the narrow way, and enter the strait gate. The words of Christ have been plain. "Strive [agonize] to enter in at the strait gate; for many I say unto you shall seek to enter in and shall not be able." Lk. 13:24 Professed Christians are not all so at heart. There are sinners in Zion now, as there were anciently. Isaiah speaks of 10 them in referring to the day of God: "The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from the holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil. He shall dwell on high; his defense shall be the munitions of rocks; bread shall be given him, his waters shall be sure" Isa. 33:14 

(1868) “The long night of gloom is trying; but the morning is deferred in mercy, because if the Master should come, so many would be found unready. God's unwillingness to have His people perish has been the reason for so long delay” (Testimonies for the Church, vol. 2, p. 194).

(1883) “The angels of God in their messages to men represent time as very short. Thus it has always been presented to me. It is true that time has continued longer than we expected in the early days of this message. Our Saviour did not appear as soon as we hoped. But has the word of the Lord failed? Never! It should be remembered that the promises and threatenings of God are alike conditional.

“God had committed to His people a work to be accomplished on earth. The third angel's message was to be given, the minds of believers were to be directed to the heavenly sanctuary, where Christ had entered to make atonement for His people. The Sabbath reform was to be carried forward. The breach in the law of God must be made up. The message must be proclaimed with a loud voice, that all the inhabitants of earth might receive the warning. The people of God must purify their souls through obedience to the truth, and be prepared to stand without fault before Him at His coming.

“Had Adventists, after the great disappointment in 1844, held fast their faith, and followed on unitedly in the opening providence of God, receiving the message of the third angel and in the power of the Holy Spirit proclaiming it to the world, they would have seen the salvation of God, the Lord would have wrought mightily with their efforts, the work would have been completed, and Christ would have come ere this to receive His people to their reward.

“But in the period of doubt and uncertainty that followed the disappointment, many of the advent believers yielded their faith. Dissensions and divisions came in. The majority opposed with voice and pen the few who, following in the providence of God, received the Sabbath reform and began to proclaim the third angel's message. Many who should have devoted their time and talents to the one purpose of sounding warning to the world, were absorbed in opposing the Sabbath truth, and in turn, the labor of its advocates was necessarily spent in answering these opponents and defending the truth. Thus the work was hindered, and the world was left in darkness. Had the whole Adventist body united upon the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus, how widely different would have been our history!

“It was not the will of God that the coming of Christ should be thus delayed. God did not design that His people, Israel, should wander forty years in the wilderness. He promised to lead them directly to the land of Canaan, and establish them there a holy, healthy, happy people. But those to whom it was first preached, went not in ‘because of unbelief’ (Heb. 3:19). Their hearts were filled with murmuring, rebellion, and hatred, and He could not fulfill His covenant with them.

“For forty years did unbelief, murmuring, and rebellion shut out ancient Israel from the land of Canaan. The same sins have delayed the entrance of modern Israel into the heavenly Canaan. In neither case were the promises of God at fault. It is the unbelief, the worldliness, unconsecration, and strife among the Lord's professed people that have kept us in this world of sin and sorrow so many years” (Selected Messages, book 1, pp. 67-69).

IF the Protestant SDA early Pioneers like William Miller, Joseph Bates, James S. White, Ellen White, Stephen Haskell, J. N. Andrews would have had the Third Angel's Message prior to 1844 THEY WOULD HAVE PROCLAIMED IT AND CHRIST WOULD ALREADY HAVE COME! WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR BROTHERS AND SISTERS?!!! LET'S GET TO WORK! PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! WORK, PRAY, WORK, PRAY! Work for the night is coming, when man's work is done!

"As they [Catholic Adventist members] refused to do the work which He had appointed them, others were raised up to proclaim the message [repeating, republishing the early 1840-1894 Protestant SDA Pioneers books, articles, and sermons]"  (The Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 4, pp. 291, 292).

(1884) “If all who had labored unitedly in the work in 1844 had received the third angel's message, and proclaimed it in the power of the Holy Spirit, the Lord would have wrought mightily with their efforts. A flood of light would have been shed upon the world. Years ago the inhabitants of the earth would have been warned, the closing work completed, and Christ would have come for the redemption of His people.

“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’ (Heb. 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 [To repeat the warning Three Angel's Messages to those backslidden from the Protestant early SDA pioneers writings]. 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” (The Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 4, pp. 291, 292).

(1896) “If those who claimed to have a living experience in the things of God had done their appointed work as the Lord ordained, the whole world would have been warned ere this, and the Lord Jesus would have come in power and great glory. For God has appointed a day in the which He will judge the world. He tells us when that day shall come,–‘This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come’” (Review and Herald, October 6, 1896).

(1898) “By giving the gospel to the world it is in our power to hasten our Lord's return. We are not only to look for but to hasten the coming of the day of God. 2 Peter 3:12, margin. Had the church of Christ done her appointed work as the Lord ordained, the whole world would before this have been warned, and the Lord Jesus would have come to our earth in power and great glory” (The Desire of Ages, p. 633, 634).

(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).

(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).

(1901) “It [the coming of the Lord] will not tarry past the time that the [Early Protestant SDA Pioneers Third Angel's Rev 14:9-12 repeating the] message is borne to all nations, tongues, and peoples. Shall we who claim to be students of prophecy forget that God's forbearance to the wicked is a part of the vast and merciful plan by which He is seeking to compass the salvation of souls?” (Review and Herald, June 18, 1901).
