Submitted by Sister Tammy: "When I found the following quote, I thought to myself, 'This is exactly what Sister Bonnie has been saying all along; that Christ's church is not listening to God's prophets of today.' Sister María also agreed when I spoke with her."
Ellen G White, "Gospel Workers" 1915, pg. 310— "We must not for a moment think that there is no more light, no more truth to be given us. We are in danger of becoming careless by our indifference, losing the sanctifying power of truth and composing ourselves with the thought, 'I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing.' While we must hold fast to the truths, which we already have received, we must not look with suspicion upon any new light that God may send."
God's Logic: "I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing." 'Rich' means these have God's Truth but are lukewarm in obedience; 'goods' refer to having things of the world instead of only being in the world. 'Need nothing' points to their knowledge of God's Truth as well as worldly comfort and thinking these are all they need to be deemed worthy of heaven, as opposed to following strictly His Truth. The lukewarm are those who easily turn to the current teaching of "Saturday" being only a day of rest and "Sunday" the day to go to a building for worship. They straddle the fence for the sake of not only comfort but also to be accepted by all peoples and for their safety during these dangerous times. They are not safe.
—— The last sentence above was underscored by White to emphasize the great importance of her statement to Christ's Remnant Church, those of her time and the future; especially future generations. 'Light,' in the Biblical Greek, means enlightenment, understanding. Today, it applies more than ever, because the church has either ignored God's prophets of today or boldly accuses them of being false prophets, liars, doing the Devil's work. Jesus said such charges would occur: evidence found in lukewarm's interpretations, which are prophetically behind times and some events not even applicable to prophecy.
—— They are unaware that the latter rains, God's judgment and the sealing work began with and ended when the Philadelphia age began in A.D. 1844 and ended, thus Laodicea began, in 1991. This Laodicea era is the sentencing phase of God's judgment and the claiming of a just people, that is to say Christ's harvest comes "quickly." The "wicked and filthy" know who they are but are in such incredible denial that they will not and cannot receive God's Truth from His prophets of today.
—— Does this mean that White and Smith were not prophets of their day? Absolutely not; for God's prophets of today know that White and Smith's prophetic interpretations up through the first few years of 1844 are accurate, even an error prophesied then corrected. Those early years of Philadelphia are accurate, without flaw— except for thinking Jesus was returning in 1844: so are the words of today's prophets accurate. While Daniel understood the prophecies about Jesus— why He would come and what He would do away with— he did not know when Christ would arrive or how He would die: the light of that understanding would come by future prophets who saw and gave clarity to the appropriate signs, especially John the Baptist. God does nothing before or after needed; He provides or informs by His prophets precisely when needed. He is never early and never late and, certainly, never wrong.
—— On the other hand, there is no new light or new prophecies; rather, the prophets today come with more clarity of the old light and interpretation of prophecies that had yet to be fulfilled. They come with the weightier matters of the old light of God's Law and, having discerned certain prophesies being or now fulfilled, have given the interpretations. The only new light shed is the timeframe of Christ's return, which also has been given; yet, part of that light is old, the season, and the part new being the year 2011. Under no circumstances will God's prophets ever be given the specific day and hour. If someone comes with the specific day and hour, then know they are false prophets and teachers.
—— They, the lukewarm White refers to, do not understand that neither White nor Uriah Smith, God's prophets of Sardis and early Philadelphia eras, could shed accurate light on the latter of the Philadelphia prophecy or the whole of Laodicea. It was not meant that they should in that God spoke of prophets for the last two ages. Neither era's projected events had occurred; therefore Smith and White could comprehend the signs but not see them clearly. White has made it obvious in her statement that there would be more "light" to come: interpretation and teaching the "weightier matters of the Law," as it were.
—— Still, the people who have not "come out of her," her being all denominations and religions including Conference SDA, are consistently rejecting the light shed on those events brought by God's prophets today. These latter recognized the need to teach the "weightier matters of God's Law," which Jesus said ought to have been done in His era. They also recognized the first sign to watch for; that being "When you see Israel surrounded by the [world's] armies . . ."
—— When that sign came to fruition in 1991, they then looked for the sign "When you see the Abomination of Desolation standing where he ought not . . . " which came to pass in 2003. Each time God's prophets warned the world but few were listening and heeding. As a result, the "lukewarm" remnants are not prepared for Christ's arrival by virtue of being behind the timelines of each prophecy fulfilled. They would have us just now entering the Philadelphia era; which, by implication, soon would have earth working during at least part of her Sabbath rest— God forbid. It also causes them to deny God's prophets, which is to commit blasphemy of the Holy Spirit unaware.
—— In not understanding the significance of 1991, when earth entered Laodicea, they do not comprehend that salvation was taken off the table at its beginning: "Let the wicked remain wicked, let the filthy remain filthy, let the righteous remain righteous." Salvation no longer on offer is exactly what that passage means. It also means that the remnant "hot" are speaking only to its lukewarm plus the cold who linger in Satan's synagogues waiting for God's Truth they suspect is missing from what they were taught but do not know what is that Truth: whether it is Law or prophecy or both or even something else.
—— The cold are those who sincerely love God and Christ and do obey what they know; therefore, they will be saved even if the Truth does not reach them. But, if the lukewarm do not let go of their comfort, they will be destroyed. What is that comfort? Both God and White and today's prophets told us: it is the world and expressing their belief that all Sunday-keeping denominations believe in the same God and Christ as do the remnant thus have joined forces with Sunday via the World Church either knowingly or unaware. Sunday alone proves those denominations "preach another Christ;" not the one we know.
—— The lukewarm are looking at events that are no signs at all; therefore, in the same passage from which White quoted, God warned them, "I would that you were hot or cold, but since you are lukewarm I will spew you out of my mouth." God "breathed" life into each body, meaning His breath is in both Him and us; thus spewing the lukewarm out of His mouth means a sentence of "twice dead." God "gives life and takes life." They will have part in the second resurrection, IF they do not quickly repent. Time is fast running out for them: "no later than mid-October to mid-November 2011."
—— Unlike the days of Uriah Smith and Ellen G White, after their deaths all they taught and wrote went forth for the remainder of Philadelphia and into Laodicea; however, the work of today's prophets will not go on: whether their deaths occur before Christ arrives or they still stand when He comes, despite some of their works written and published as well as online for earth's eleventh hour; for there is not time available to the lukewarm and cold to do necessary research. God is incredibly merciful in that He made available what is needed for the lukewarm and cold as this last age perilously nears a "quick" end.
—— Why will today's prophets' work not go on? When the world's Blue Laws begin to be re-enforced, Nations will remove all their works from brick and mortar bookstores and Internet book providers— i.e. Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Nobel— together with removal of the prophets' websites. The time is so near that already specific works have been removed from the prophets' websites and put under military control. At least two of God's prophets can testify to the removals. God spoke of two prophets in Sardis and early Philadelphia: we believe Smith and White were those prophets. We believe there also are two for the remainder of Philadelphia and Laodicea: only Christ's people can identify them by the Truth and common sense and God's wisdom they speak.
—— Historically and today, God had either one or two prophets to deliver His warnings and messages: "I do nothing that I do not first tell my prophets." For example, there was Isaiah or Daniel standing alone; in the Messiah's day there were two: Christ's cousin John the Baptist and Jesus Himself, John beheaded after Jesus' ministry began. Not only was our Messiah the Son of God but also was referred to as a prophet of God. He was both: He lived, taught, chastised, warned and prophesied man's future. The prophets of today do the same as befitting today.
—— One might wonder, two prophets for the entire world? It is not the entire world they need to reach. They need only reach remnant leaders as well as the lukewarm and cold: Christ's flocks are small in number and will become even smaller as time runs out while violence ensues. If the leaders hear, they will carry the Truth to their flocks; and, if the lukewarm and cold hear, the latter will "come out of her" the instant they hear the Truth and, hopefully, the lukewarm will turn from the world. The prophets' websites and books carry God's message globally to all God's righteous people, who then carry it forward. Have you heard and carried it forward?
The Davidians-Man's First Attack:
Man's first attack on Christ's sheep of what was/is to come during the Laodicea era, the age that began in January 1991 with reconnaissance for Desert Storm, as a result of re-enforcing long-standing global Blue Laws. Waco, Texas was man's first attack against us and God's example of Satan's persecution, but two more attacks would come: last year RDK reported a Sabbatarian arrested and a woman denied the right to home school her children because she was "too religious."
—— In looking back to the 1700s, it was found that many Sabbatarians were beaten, jailed and hung for not working on Saturday yet working on Sunday: see "Dateline Sunday, USA" by esq. Warren L. Johns. Those incidents reflected the level of police power attached to Blue Laws enacted during the 1700s and what would happen during this last church age, Laodicea; said violence against Christ's sheep ultimately to have begun anew in 1993.
—— On 19 April 1993 the world watched as a Sabbatarian group known as The Branch Davidian, succeeding leader David Koresh but not named for him, were slaughtered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) at the Davidian compound in Mt. Carmel near Waco, Texas; which attacks began on 28 February 1993 based on President Clinton's supposed warrant for the arrest of Koresh, likely based on the charge of sexual acts against children. The siege lasted 51-days. The ATF came in on claims the group had a large arsenal and charges of Koresh having illicit sex with the group's women and children and squatting illegally on the land.
—— On that first day, Koresh opened the door to several agents, who stated having a warrant and opened fire, striking Koresh in the hand and another man in the stomach; the latter of whom died of his injury before the siege ended. Koresh told the agents that they could have arrested him any time when he was at the store or other places of business. It appeared the ATF wanted to ambush the compound and members.
—— As a result of the last day and despite Clinton's order to end the siege peacefully, a total of 86 men and women, including 26 children plus 2-trauma born babies, were left dead; which included an entire family who came from England to join the group. Of the survivors, there were 21 children ranging in ages 5-months to 12-years old, the youngest's mother killed as she nursed her baby. Child Protective Services took possession of and found the kids healthy, well nourished, very polite and no signs of abuse of any kind including sexual.
—— On the first day and counted among the 86, as 3 men tried to return home after being gone for the day, one was shot 7 times and lay dead for 5 days, the other 2 were beaten and taken into custody; and, another 6 were killed that day as noted below. The 2 men later testified: "As we were being led to the police car, we heard two more shots and later learned that our friend had two additional shots behind his ear"— much like a contract kill to make sure the man was dead.
—— The infamous last day began with Koresh going out to the gate to ask ATF to please back off because there were women and children in the building. ATF claimed that Koresh and 6 others began firing at them, killing 4 ATF agents. The agents said they returned fire and killed 6 Davidians. ATF immediately charged all members with murder, and ATF's onslaught began: of which charge the survivors later were declared innocent by jury. Tanks plowed into the metal structure housing Davidians: a massive fire resulted, destroying the building and most of its occupants.
—— ATF later claimed the resulting fire was set by Koresh and reported that the Davidians had committed mass suicide, apparently influenced by the Jim Jones incident in Guiana; albeit, the Davidians were in no way affiliated with or believed as the Jim Jones group. Actually, Koresh had been an SDA Conference member for years then later joined the Branch Davidians due to some of the new Conference teachings, specifically that SDA and Sunday believe in the same God and Christ. Koresh also agreed with the Davidians' interpretation of prophecy in these end days, which was on target. The Davidians had hoped that the compound, out in the middle of nowhere, would be a place of safety during this Laodicea age.
—— In 1955 the group was established in California by Victor Houteff, a Bulgarian immigrant and SDA sabbath school teacher, who in 1929 claimed to have a new message for the church and wrote "The Shepard's Rod, The 144,000, A Call For Redemption." The Branch Davidian was so named for the Davidic Kingdom to come, likely because Jesus will sit upon King David's throne, and The Branch purportedly will be Christ's new name: He is Biblically referred to as The Branch.
—— Houteff later moved his flock of 20 to Mt. Carmel near Waco, TX, where he purchased the land and attached buildings where the 1993 massacre took place. ATF claimed Koresh was squatting because the original 20 members were no longer alive. Likely after Houteff's death, David Koresh succeeded him as the Davidian Shepard of the flock that already had grown to approximately 140. Additionally, The Branch Davidian was the first such religious group granted permission to establish a location in Israel in an locale known as strictly vegetarian, which settlement remains to this day.
—— Waco's few survivors declared that none of the charges against Koresh were true . The County Sheriff stated that he had met the Davidians on numerous occasions and found them to be very nice, polite, quiet, and never caused trouble: "They just had different beliefs than mine." Former 16-year veteran FBI agent, Dr. Frederick Whitehurst, did a 6-year investigation into the incident and found none of the allegations to be true . —— Sadly, the SDA Conference denied any affiliation with the Davidians and outright declared them and Koresh of being radicals: an SDA declaration Christ's sheep are experiencing today for having "come out of her" in response to SDA uniting with Sunday denominations, its proven membership in the Vatican's World Church and changes in the original church teachings.
—— Later, specific FBI, CIA and Special Forces agents stated they found evidence suggesting the ATF claims were false. The latter also stated, "The American people never were given the whole truth of what happened that [last] night [of 04-19-93]. The U.S. Government murdered their own in Waco, Texas."
—— With a background in Texas Real Estate Law, it is easy to address ATF's charge that Davidians were squatting illegally. The State of Texas has certain squatter rights in its laws indicating it was not ATF's right to make such a charge, one that only the true landowner can make. However, the landowner must first demand that the squatters vacate his property and, if that does not work, the landowner must have a sheriff serve formal eviction notice or go to court to get them off his land.
—— Texas squatters are protected further: if they have lived on and maintained the land and buildings for at least 10 years, they can petition the court for ownership and will win; especially since the owner in this case was deceased and the title likely to The Branch Davidian: further, he might have died without heirs except for his growing flock.
—— Two such Texas cases-in-point come to mind: 1. Squatter moved into an abandon house, maintained the land and home-after 15 years, the owner demanded the squatter get off his property-the court awarded ownership to the squatter; 2. A landowner set a property fence ten feet onto adjoining property, it was not noted for over 10 years, at which time the adjoining owner demanded the fence be moved-the squatter property owner took it to court and won the extra 10 feet to his property.
—— Nevertheless, just because the members in 1993 were not of the original 20 does not make them any less The Branch Davidian. It is quite likely, however, that the Federal Government confiscated the land, based on imminent domain and false criminal charges, as part of its cover up for the ATF's actions that fatal day. Doing so also assures that Sabbatarians of any persuasion never will use the land again.
—— As you can ascertain, dear sheep, 1993 was the beginning of persecution and is the worst of which we have to look forward; we cannot look to the SDA Conference for protection, as they will take part in the abuses to come against us. SDA's alliance with the World Church demands that they persecute us right along with Sunday sects.
—— We must add, however, that the mistake made by Davidians was in firing even a single shot. We understand they felt they were protecting their women and children; but, they were to, and we must, follow in Christ's exact footsteps, which means remaining peaceful at all times and in whatsoever situations whether deadly or not. We are to willingly take false accusations, beatings, jail, and death; even if it includes our children: it all began with The Branch Davidian. It will not last much longer before Jesus arrives.
—— We must recall what Jesus did when He was arrested thus mimic His actions. Peter was so incensed that he took out his sword and cut off a guard's ear at the time of Christ's arrest. Jesus chastised Peter for his act of violence then restored the man's ear. Recall: the wicked and filthy's violence is a curse unto them, and our peaceful acceptance is a blessing unto us.
—— Today, the Davidian survivors have erected a memorial monument at the Waco site. On one side is a memorial to Oklahoma City bombing victims and, on the other side, a memorial to The Branch Davidian victims. Recently, the survivors scheduled a gathering to remember their fallen Davidian brothers and sisters. We should recall in Revelation that, when the dead saints cried out for vengeance, God told them to rest a while longer until a "few" of their brethren are killed as were they. Such event may well have been The Branch Davidian, indicating that it will not get that bad before Christ arrives.
—— Interesting Fact: On 19 April 1775 the U.S. revolution began against England, thus declared a nation in 1776; on 19 April 1993 The Branch Davidians were slaughter by the US Federal Government; and, on 19 April 1995, a homegrown terrorist bombed the Okalahoma Federal Building. This makes us wonder what might happen on 19 April 2011. The U.S. Government believes we are about to be struck by terrorists: it might be an opportunity to enact a nationwide emergency, Marshall Law as it were, under the guise of preventing terrorism but also include the beginning of re-enforcing Sunday Blue Laws: i.e. going after Christ's sheep.
From the Vatican's Mouth:
—— Catholic Mirror, 12-23-1893; "Reason and common sense demand the acceptance of one or the other of these alternatives: either Protestantism and the keeping holy of Saturday, or Catholicity and the keeping holy of Sunday. Compromise is impossible."
—— Storia Della Dominica (History of Sunday), 1969, pgs. 366-367, by S. C. Mosma: "Not the Creator of the universe, in Genesis 2:1-3, but the Catholic Church 'can claim the honor of having granted man a pause to his work every seven days.'"
——— God's Logic: There are many more relevant Vatican quotes of much later dates and are included in "Truth Gathering." What we find significant in the first quote above is the Vatican implied identification of both Christ's true church and the harlot daughters of the great whore: the first being those who strictly adhere to God's Fourth Precept Sabbath Saturday, whom the Vatican calls Protestant, which name stemmed from the Vatican considering us protestors of her doctrine. The latter identified all other Christian sects observing Sunday, today referenced as Orthodox Christian Churches and whom the Vatican calls Catholic despite whatever name they use: i.e. Baptist, Lutheran, etc.
———We do agree that compromise is impossible, in that Christ's true church will never embrace Sunday in any form, either by implication or outright avowal. Obviously, the SDA Conference churches are now identified as Catholic because they united with Sunday sects and approved Sunday by its membership in the World Church. All who remain in the Conference churches also are deemed Catholic by not "coming out of her."
——— The one word not added to the second quote is: "every seven days, 'Sunday.'" We already knew that Papal Rome instituted Sunday, first by civil law as "rest and entertainment" in A.D. 200, then by civil law as an "ecclesiastical" sabbath in A.D. 438. Those two years alone prove that Sunday was never approved by God, Christ, or the Apostles and their proselytes: it occurred, after all, 405 years after Christ ascended. In fact, Paul warned of such a church against Truth forming in his day. While it is true that Peter went to Rome and died there and might even be buried in the catacombs with all deceased Popes, as the Vatican claims, he was a Jew and never would have approved of either the Vatican's doctrine or the day they chose as God's Sabbath.
——— The boldest of that Vatican quote is that God did not give man a Sabbath rest, as the Bible reads in Genesis 2:1-3; and, she further claims God gave the honor to Papal Rome to determine a day of rest, its choice Sunday. Such claims are to call God's Word a lie and the Holy Spirit a liar. This is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit: according to Jesus, the only unforgivable sin— "a sin unto death" to its leaders and adamant followers.
The Devil's Bible:
Found in 2006 and published in 2008 was a centuries-old manuscript titled "Codex Gigas," otherwise called "The Devil's Bible," purportedly written by a thirteenth century Swedish Monk, Herman the Recluse; which writing ended in A.D. 1229. The original manuscript is bound by leather-covered wood with metal embellishments and measures 3-ft. 2-in tall by 19.7-in wide by 8-ft. 6-in thick and weighs 165 pounds. The pages are vellum made from animal skins, which took 160 animals. The original, stored in Sweden's Konga Bibliotek, is considered the eighth wonder of the world that finite experts, contrary to legend, estimate took 800 years to write, making its start date in A.D. 429. That many years would take a number of writers, instead of Herman alone.
—— Supposedly, Herman broke his monastic vows and was to be forever sealed alive in a monastery wall. In an attempt to avoid death, Herman vowed to the church to write the above book in one night in exchange for his life and be permanently ostracized from the church. When he realized it was an impossible task, he made a plea to Satan to write the book and, in exchange, he would give his soul to Satan. According to legend, the book, was finished on time and included a self-portrait of Satan in profile looking to a picture of heaven's throne on the opposite page, as well as numerous other pictures hand drawn. Later realizing his great error, Herman made several attempts to exorcise Satan but failed.
—— As Sister María read this data to us, our first thought was how it might be tied to Papal Rome; so, we ask who was the author: a Monk. The next clue was the fact that this book includes the entire Vulgate with the exception of Acts and Revelation. The Vulgate is Papal Rome's distorted version of the Holy Bible. It was now obvious that the Vatican was behind "Codex Gigas" but for what purpose?
—— The bulk of the book contains every detail of Satan: his appearance, his power, his authority over earth— albeit we know his authority is temporary— what he has done and how he did it as well as what he will do and how he will do it. The purpose becomes obvious: there remain Christ's sheep that Satan has not been able to influence. What better way to get them than to seemingly prove that Satan is earth's rightful God represented by Rome and her harlot daughters: IF it were possible to deceive the elect.
—— One might question, "Why would the writer leave out the books of Acts and Revelation?" It is known that Papal Rome forbids the reading and/or study of Revelation, knowing it will reveal her and her purpose for existence. But, Acts? The Acts set out the Apostles' ministry, in which book will not be found that Peter formed the Catholic religion and was not its first Pope, as Rome claims.
—— It is true that Peter went to Rome to minister, died in Rome and might even be buried in the Vatican's catacombs, as they claim. However, Peter never would have approved of or been a part of that blasphemous religion. Acts also verifies that the Apostles and their proselytes as well as Minister Paul obeyed God's Fourth Precept Sabbath— noted at least 84 times in Acts— in direct contradiction that the Apostles changed the Sabbath to Sunday and taught that the day did not matter. They taught that the ordinance Sabbaths did not matter, but the Precept Sabbath will always matter.
—— This book is available worldwide, already listed amidst Amazon.com's bookshelves. The available single books by current authors are likely summaries of "Codex Gigas;" yet, there is one book set out in a series of ten and might contain the bulk of the original. Still, we strongly urge Christ's sheep to stay away from the book; it is pure evil in content and nature and could cause confusion to those who lack an "understanding of all things."
Peace be with you in Christ,
