The Eastern Question – A Prophecy Revitalised 


By Ken LeBrun, mp3

A hundred years ago the Eastern Question was one of the most talked about prophecies in the Bible among Seventh-day Adventists. Then it went into a period of decline where you didn’t hear much about it at all for decades. And now it is coming back into interest once again. In the following quotation, Ellen White was reporting on a camp meeting that was being conducted: Read the rest of this entry

Pagan and Papal Rome

Desolations of Pagan Rome

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Matthew 24:6.

  • To see that when a nation such as Rome desolates another nation such as Judea, it will also be desolated
  • To behold once again God’s ability to predestine events by His divine foreknowledge
  • To watch as an empire melts into decay and changes its nature

Ribbon of Blue

By Peter D Lausevic, Audio: http://listentosermons.org/sermons.php?Series=Reformation%20Series%20I

Introduction

Our God is a God of love and never on any occasion does he tell us to do something that is not for our own benefit.Sometimes if we would only see the end from the beginning, we would really begin to understand the reasons for what God asks of us. We would begin to say praise the Lord for the rules he has laid down for our living. Read the rest of this entry

Wine and the Bible

H. Kellogg, M.D.

‘And be not drunk with wine. wherein is excess but be filled with the Spirit.” Eph. 5: 18

Among civilized nations, the Bible is almost universally admitted to be at least an admirable code of morals, even by those who do not regard it as an inspired book. An authority held in such high esteem would necessarily have very great influence in molding the judgments of men and forming their opinions. It is for the purpose of gaining the support of this generally accepted authority that the adherents of any special theory or doctrine appeal to the Scriptures for testimony in favor of the same. It need not be at all surprising, then, that the language of Holy Writ should often be grossly perverted by enthusiasts and unscrupulous persons in their attempts to find for their pet theories the needed endorsement. Illustrations of this use of the Scriptures are very abundant. A large class of modern agitators who call themselves “social reformers,” and have made themselves notorious by the laxity of morals advocated and practicing by them, claim to find in the Word of God license for their immorality. Polygamists, likewise, appeal to inspiration in support of their unchristian practice. Only a few years ago, American slavery received from thousands of pulpits a most vigorous support, which claimed to have the sanction of divine authority. Read the rest of this entry

Samuele Bacchiocchi, Ph. D.

A major factor which has contributed to the significant increase in the consumption of alcoholic beverages on the part of Christians in general is the prevailing assumption that the Bible teaches moderation, not total abstinence. Billy Graham himself stated in an interview: “I do not believe that the Bible teaches teetotalism . . . Read the rest of this entry

Daniel Unsealed – World History’s Response to Biblical Prophecy

The Princes of the North

Each Gospel is a supplement to the others, every prophecy an explanation of another, every truth a development of some other truth. Education, page 123 

How shall we search the Scriptures? Shall we drive our stakes of doctrine one after another, and then try to make all Scripture meet our established opinions, or shall we take our ideas and views to the Scriptures, and measure our theories on every side by the Scriptures of truth? {RH, July 26, 1892 par. 3} Read the rest of this entry

The True Pioneer Position of the King of the North


By Gene Brown (used with permission)

Daniel 11:45 & Daniel 12:1

We need to come into unity on this subject, and the only way that will happen is if we accept the truth our pioneers established and build on the light that God has already given. It is imperative that we understand this prophecy.

Probation is soon to close, and “the final movements will be rapid ones”. “He [The person asking; what shall I do to inherit eternal life?] has a chart pointing out every waymark on the heavenward journey, and he ought not to guess at anything.” Great Controversy, page 598

The world is stirred with the spirit of war. The prophecy of the eleventh chapter of Daniel has nearly reached its complete fulfillment. Soon the scenes of trouble spoken of in the prophecies will take place.” Testimonies, vol. 9, page 14

“I am pained at my very heart; . . . I cannot hold my peace, because thou has heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. Jeremiah 4:19 Read the rest of this entry

A Sinner from Birth

Jesus: The Carrier

By Larry Kirkpatrick

Isaiah 53:4 Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.

Jesus carried our griefs and sorrows, and that he was considered God-cursed. 

As we’ve considered our Lord in the previous verses of this chapter we’ve been almost shocked by the truth of not only His divinity, but yet more His humanity. He came as a Root out of dry ground, a divine character bearing the very flesh of a dry, twisted, fallen humanity. Never sinning (for we are plainly told that He was “in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” Hebrews 4:15), ever bearing in His body daily crucifixion of the nature He had taken, He walked through this world with one purpose: to glorify His Father by bringing the applied power of the gospel to the human race. His life offered, the benefits of the atonement applied, empowered God to be both just and Justifier in His redemption of man (Romans 3:26). Read the rest of this entry

The King of the North and the Syria crisis


By Prof. Rodney Shakespeare

To its great credit Syria has had good relations between communities but all is being destroyed as the New World Order divides on its way to conquer. This is not only NWO policy but Zionist policy which wants to ensure that no Middle East country is strong enough to stand up against Israeli expansionism. Syrian Girl is telling it as it is. She is to be commended.” Read the rest of this entry

Siege at SDA Church With Plastic Turkey And Mannequin In Dress Reform

By Tony Hall

Beloved Brethren,

Please prayerfully consider the following references, and view the videos. This could very well be the “THE SIMPLE MEANS” whereby the work can be finished and we can go home.

“Arise now, contend before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice” (make it public).”-1SR242

“the “siege against it” shall be successfully culminated in a glorious victory when “the zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”-1SC2:2

“So the stir caused by Truth’s siege of the church and It’s adversaries warring against It, that is already beginning to arrest the attention of the world, is to result in the cleansing of the church, “temple.” Mal. 3:1-3.” -1TG26:23

“That is, when this takes place in the antitypical house of Judah, it shall stand as a sign by which the antitypical house of Israel shall be warned… Thus the present siege against the “city” (the Seventh-day Adventist Denomination) is to be a sign to the Sunday-keepers; that is, it is designed to awaken them to a realization of how the Lord is to be worshiped, and where saving truth is to be found…”- SRp p.75,86






The Caliphate is Coming – The King of the North

The following is from a Turkish editor, of a paper called the Vakit:

“We shall do our utmost to keep England’s support; but at last, if we do not succeed in it, then it is very easy to know what we have to do. When Europe will not look at us, then we shall lay aside all the European customs which we have adopted, and enter our own old way; form the boy of thirteen to the old man of seventy-five, everyone one of us will be armed, and we shall defend by the will of God, and by the daring of the old days, the country we have held for five hundred years.  And if the issue should come to this, as Islamism is not confined to Turkey, then we will blend all the different Moslem races into one ; the Moslems of India, of Central Asia, of the Caucasus, of Africa, and of Algeria will come forward, and we shall again take measures which we once adopted for the conquest of Jerusalem. We shall send proclamations everywhere, and declare a general war against Christendom…. Then it will not be possible to subjugate 120,000,000 Moslems by 90,000,000 solders. If the Moslems all over the world rise to defend their sacred religion, and if the treasure accumulated every year at Mecca is disposed of for the protection of the Mohammedan faith, then the scenes of ancient European wars, where the Moslems were both victorious and destructive, will be repeated, and the progress and civilization of centuries will be destroyed.”

It is our opinion that any power that reigns over Syria is – for the time being – “the king of the north,” spoken of [in] Daniel XI; hence that the Turkish Dynasty is now [1854] that power. If Russia, Austria, England, or France should become possessed of supreme power over Syria, then it – which ever it might be – would become “the king of the north.” Till then none but the Turkish Dynasty occupies that position, in our opinion. James White, Review and Herald, Dec. 12, 1854

If Daniel 11:40-45 is literal, then the power represented here cannot be the papacy as most suppose. Therefore, it must be another power that comes into play just before probation closes. We all know the papacy is behind all the evil that is being perpetrated, so it has to be behind this power and instigating its movements, although Islam has gotten out of control and the papacy is trying very hard to regain that control.

Pope Benedict NOT the 7th Pope of Revelation – the seven heads are not seven popes, but seven forms of the Roman empire/system of government

rome

There is much speculation going about that the resignation of Pope Benedict relates to Revelation 17:8-11 and that we are at the time of the eighth pope and it will be the last pope. That is not what the Bible declares:

Revelation 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9 And here [is] the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, [and] the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

The beast that the woman sat on was seven hills and the seven hills were seven kings. What city has seven hills? Rome. The seven kings, five are fallen one is and one is to come. Rome had seven different types of leadership? 753BC Rome was a kingdom and a kingdom has what?

They had a king and it made them no different to any other kingdom in the world but the Bible says when they took supremacy over the world they were diverse form the rest. Why were they diverse? In 508 Rome became a
republic. They had an election. They elected a president or a dictator.

The Name Seventh Day Adventist and Lawsuits

Isaiah 65:15 And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name:

A few thoughts on the “trade mark” persecution.

” In 1981, the Seventh-day Adventist Church General Conference Corporation acting for the church and as head of the church obtained a trademark registration for the name “Seventh-day Adventist” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, becoming the very first Protestant church denomination in America to appeal to the state for protection of her name.”

Dress and Your Heart

By Linda Kirk

This is written for Seventh-day Adventist Christians who love the Lord Jesus Christ, and have made a covenant with Him through baptism to follow Him wherever He may lead.

We invite you to prayerfully consider if you hear the voice of God speaking to your heart through these messages. If you are weak in your faith, or hesitant in your commitment to God, it is an urgent matter that you seek the inward adorning before considering your outward attire. Read the rest of this entry

The Christian and Music, Singing, Dancing and Drums

Audio: Word to the Wise By Brian S Neumann

The Use of the Tabret or Drum

Genesis 31:26 And Laban said to Jacob, What hast thou done, that thou hast stolen away unawares to me, and carried away my daughters, as captives [taken] with the sword? 31:27 Wherefore didst thou flee away secretly, and steal away from me; and didst not tell me, that I might have sent thee away with mirth, and with songs, with tabret, and with harp? Jacob left in the night and after Laban woke up realising he was gone and he chased after Jacob and he said, why did you leave?  We could have had some celebration with drums and we could have said goodbye in that way.  Does that establish a doctrine?  No, it’s one text. Also, the noise of the tabrets, drums and tambourine’s ceasing at the desolation of the earth has nothing to do with doctrine. Read the rest of this entry

Painting of Jesus

The Author and Finisher of Salvation Psalms 18:2, Hebrews 5:9, 12:2.

THE ONLY KNOWN “PAINTING” OF JESUS.

This picture was reproduced by John Sartain’s engraving “Our Saviour” first published by Richard De Forest, Rochester, NY, and L.W. Carr, Detroit, MI and entered according to Act of Congress in 1865.

The following legend is attributed to the picture:

From the only authentic likeness of our Saviour, cut on an emerald by command of Tiberius Caesar, and given later to pope innocent VII from the treasury at Constantinople, by the emperor of the Turks, for the ransom of his brother, then a captive of the “christians”.

Interestingly, there must be a strong resemblance of this picture to Jesus, as he appeared on this earth, because Ellen G. White, was greatly impressed.

She was the prophet that saw Jesus many times in vision, and the person who wrote this story of the crucifixion in 1884.

This is the personal testimony from the letter of Abbie Kellogg Norton, dated March 19, 1935. —>

“I well recall seeing Brother and Sister White coming to our home many times when I was a child – probably in 1878-79 or 1880-81, and Sister White never failed to comment upon the picture and its likeness to the Saviour as she has seen him in visions. I think her exact words were,

“Yes, yes, it looks as I’ve seen our Saviour in visions – it’s more nearly a likeness than anything I have ever seen.”

Of course, it made a great impression on us all. Not long before my mother died, she retold this story to some of the brethren and sisters in Mountain View, California.”

I can add my personal testimony as I have seen this picture hanging on a bedroom wall at Elmshaven in Deer Park, California. Ellen White’s granddaughter showed it to us and told about Ellen White’s comments, that it was a great likeness to what she had seen in vision.

The 2520 by Dwayne Lemon

0816016

By Dwayne Lemon

There are individuals today that will take a figure that was on William Millers chart and they will use that figure as a means of saying if you do not believe in this number called the 2520, you are an apostate.  There are certain individuals saying that.  There are Adventists today that go around saying there is a 2520 prophecy.  We have fallen away from the truth God has given us as a people. We were taught how to study the Bible. The Spirit of God leads us line upon line, precept upon precept but most people took a chart with a number on it and took an abstract quotation from the Spirit of Prophecy where Ellen White spoke highly of the chart and nothing should be altered on it but they DID NOT FINISH the statement. She said nothing should be altered on it accept by inspiration. In other words, if inspiration says something on this chart was wrong, then they have an authority to remove it.   People forgot about that so they went around talking about a 2520 and allowing groups and camps to come together and it became an instrument that the devil used to create a segregation among the people of God.  In a time where were 71 times in the Spirit of Prophecy we are told to press together, press together, press together, there are individuals trying to separate over something that doesn’t even exist.  You say what do you mean?  I will tell you exactly.

A Suit and a Tie

“It goes without saying that a right tie completes men’s outfit and can literally work wonders. Suppose you see a man, an anchor, a businessman, or a politician on the TV; ask yourself what draws your attention first of all? I bet your answer is “their face.” What is the next – their tie?”  Antonio Centeno, President at A Tailored Suit, Austin, Texas

Why Do Some Men Complain About Having To Wear A Tie?

“In the 1960s, there was a definite lapse in the inclination of men to wear ties, as a result of the rebellion against both tradition and the formality of dress. But by the mid-1970s, this trend had reversed itself. Ties have been used to proclaim status, occupation, and even identity, as well as allegiance to a group or cause, often military. Neckwear has also had utilitarian purposes—to protect the neck or hide buttons on a shirt.”

Everything worn by the priest was to be whole and without blemish. By those beautiful official garments was represented the character of the great antitype, Jesus Christ. Nothing but perfection, in dress and attitude, in word and spirit, could be acceptable to God. He is holy, and His glory and perfection must be represented by the earthly service. Nothing but perfection could properly represent the sacredness of the heavenly service. Finite man might rend his own heart by showing a contrite and humble spirit. This God would discern. But no rent must be made in the priestly robes, for this would mar the representation of heavenly things. The high priest who dared to appear in holy office, and engage in the service of the sanctuary, with a rent robe, was looked upon as having severed himself from God. By rending his garment he cut himself off from being a representative character. He was no longer accepted by God as an officiating priest. This course of action, as exhibited by Caiaphas, showed human passion, human imperfection.  {DA 709.1} Read the rest of this entry

Head Coverings and Women

This whole Corinthians discussion by Paul is not a discussion about head coverings, either literal or figurative, but about the authority of a man over his wife. It was a discussion of the roles of men and women, and the line of authority: God, Christ, the man, the woman. If it was talking about a physical head covering, then how do you explain the statement by Paul (vs 4) that if a man covers his head, he dishonours it.

But God covered the heads of the priests with turbans in the earthly sanctuary, and their dress (including the head covering) was given them for “glory and beauty”. If it was dishonouring in the Christian church time, why was it considered glory and beauty in Israel’s time? God doesn’t change. Notice that none of the “covering” root Greek words are words for a literal head covering until it gets to verse 15, where it talks about the literal head covering of a woman’s long hair.

The Procession

By Hal Mayer, Audio: The Procession

2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way. 

 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 

 2:9 [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 

 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 

 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 

 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 

This is a story found in Testimonies to the Church Volume 1 concerning an experience that Ellen White and her husband had with the leading brethren in Battle Creek. It is worth considering in this juncture of our history. It involves three specific dreams and vision.  It has lessons that are poignant for us especially in light of trials we currently face and in the near future. These four revelations were meant for both Ellen White and for us to explain to her some things about the church she knew in her day and to explain to us how Gods faithful people will be viewed by their fellow churches as we approach and go through the time of trouble. In a sense the dreams are prophetic.  They reveal something about Gods way of preparing us for the time of trouble and they will tell us something about the purposes of God in allowing such difficulties to arise between brethren who should be working unitedly together.  One of these dreams reveals the motivation that drives certain human elements in the last days. The other reveals the divine purpose towards Gods faithful commandment keeping people in the same event. Read the rest of this entry
