No Hope or Change- The 7th day Adventist's new push of Ellen G. White's revelation
7th day Adventists are usually secretive when it comes to certain matters, like inviting people to their seminars at certain times of the year. Recently they have launched The great hope project, where the general conference now has a campaign to distribute the Great Controversy: “We encourage everyone to distribute this book as the leaves of autumn.” This is Ellen G. Whites Grand Canard.
“The Great Controversy should be very widely circulated. It contains the story of the past, the present, and the future. In its outline of the closing scenes of this earth’s history, it bears a powerful testimony in behalf of the truth. I am more anxious to see a wide circulation for this book than for any others I have written; for in The Great Controversy, the last message of warning to the world is given more distinctly than in any of my other books. (Letter 281, 1905).”
And you thought the Sabbath issue was waning, no, they are stepping it up. Because this is what this book of ellen wWites is all about.
The prophetess Ellen G. White (1827-1915) has been the main influence of Seventh-day Adventist church. Her writings shaped and guided Adventism throughout its history by her so called prophetic ministry. Why The Adventist Church continues to recirculate this book of Theoretic visions is beyond me (The Great Controversy). They just can’t separate from the Sabbath keeping heresy of theirs that this has become truculent attack on the Christian church that is in the new covenant.
As you go through life, you may sense that the world is gripped in a conflict between good and evil. From what you see in the news, it may look as if evile is winning. Headlines describe famine, wars, unemployment, pollution, and disease.
The media can tell you what is happening, but this book reveals why. The Great Hope also tells you what will happen next. This glimpse into the future is based on a source that has never failed in its prophecies-the Bible.
The conflict between good and evil is coming to a dramatic climax that will affect every family on the planet. But take hope. You can choose to be on the winning side.
The Winning side is about making the Sabbath the main issue of the world.
Before we go to this book lets consider her revelation.In the middle of the 1800’s Ellen G. White has a vision on the Sabbath which shaped their sect into the 7th Adventists.
In "Life Sketches of Ellen G. White," published by the Adventists, Mrs. White describes her "vision" of the Sabbath day. "Elder Bates was resting upon Saturday, the seventh day of the week, and he urged it upon our attention as the true Sabbath. I did not feel its importance, and thought that he erred in dwelling upon the fourth commandment more than upon the other nine. But the Lord gave me a view of the heavenly sanctuary. The temple of God was opened in heaven, and I was shown the ark of God covered with the mercy seat. Two angels stood one at either end of the ark with their wings spread over the mercy seat and their faces turned toward it. This, my accompanying angel informed me, represented all the heavenly hosts looking with reverential awe toward the law of God; which had been written by the finger of God. Jesus raised the cover of the ark, and I beheld the tables of stone on which the Ten Commandments were written. I was amazed as I saw the fourth commandment in the very center of the ten precepts with a soft halo of light encircling it. Said the angel, 'It is the only one of the ten which defines the living God who created the heavens and the earth and all things that are therein."' (pp. 95, 96.)
The only one? That’s a lie; so we have a lying angel feeding White non biblical teaching which does make this a lying vision, (if there actually was one). John who was an apostle saw no such thing, and neither did Paul who said it was illegal to speak on what he saw. Does God have all the angels look at the law or the lamb who fulfilled the law?The focus of the Revelation is the lamb who is worshipped and given honor, not the law, not the commandments. Rev.5:13
The Sabbath is not mentioned once in John’s Revelation. So we must believe that Mrs. White had an even greater more IMPORTANT revelation.First – no one, not even the high priest was to look inside the ark Yet Ellen White said she saw what’s inside in heaven.
Both God and Moses wrote the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments were first written on stone tablets by the finger of God and were placed inside the Ark of the Covenant. They were not allowed to look inside the ark, All the laws were also written by Moses on parchment with ink and placed outside the Ark in the Book of the Covenant for the priests. Otherwise the priest would not know or have daily assess to the law, neither would we be reading it in the Bible.
2 Corinthians 3:2-11: “for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life. But if the ministration of death, written, and engraven on stones.” So their concentration on the 10 commandments is not life but death, that’s not my opinion but the Bibles truth.
White claimed xi: As the Spirit of God has opened to my mind the great truths of His word, and the scenes of the past and the future, I have been bidden to make known to others that which has been revealed to trace the history of the controversy in past ages, and especially so to present it as to shed a light on the fast-approaching struggle of the future.”
That struggle would be the test for all mankind to worship either on the Sabbath or on Sunday (or any other day but the Sabbath).Making Sunday worship as serving the devil is not only insulting, it is Biblical heresy.
The book from White that the 7th Day Adventists promote has false doctrines, embellishments, and wrong timing as fulfilled prophecy and it even teaches a works based salvation. Gal. 5:4 ‘you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.”
The Bible speaks of a Tribulation after Israel returns into her land. “The sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory” (Mk. 13:24-26) (Rev. 6:12-16)
Ellen White claimed these signs had already been fulfilled in 1755, 1780, 1833:
"These signs were witnessed before the opening of the nineteenth century. In fulfillment of this prophecy there occurred, in the year 1755, the most terrible earthquake that has ever been recorded." (Great Controversy, p. 304)
The Lisbon earthquake was not "the most terrible earthquake that has ever been recorded” there were worse quakes before and certainly afterwards.
"May 19, 1780, stands in history as "The Dark Day." Since the time of Moses no period of darkness of equal density, extent, and duration, has ever been recorded." (ibid p. 308)
"In 1833...the last of the signs appeared which were promised by the Saviour as tokens of His second advent. ... This prophecy received a striking and impressive fulfillment in the great meteoric shower of November 13, 1833. That was the most extensive and wonderful display of falling stars which has ever been recorded..." (ibid, p. 308)
Ellen G. White called these “tokens of His second advent.” Where is the Son of man that was to be appear when the signs occurred? Rev.6:15-16 describes the people who witness the signs as with horror. People, the leaders of the nations, are described as running to the mountains, hiding in fear, and asking for the mountains to fall on them. Well if one thinks this has taken place they are sorely deluded.
“A great religious awakening under the proclamation of Christ’s soon coming is foretold in the prophecy of the first angel’s message of Revelation 14 [14:7 ‘The hour of his judgment is come’].(The Great Controversy, p.355)
There is a “great religious awakening” in Revelation 14. Through the 144,000 Jews the great multitude in chapter 7 are converted, and they are slain. What is left after chapter 13 is the institution of the mark, the antichrist ruling over the governments of the world. Only judgment, a message of the wrath of God is proclaimed in the preceding chapters. The un-saved do not repent. Revelation 14 is a final message of judgment, NOT salvation. And NONE of this happened in 144 or any other year to today.
Here’s what you have in this book by their prophetess led by an accompanying angel “Like a tidal wave the movement [that Jesus would return in October 1844] swept over the land. From city to city, from village to village, and into remote country places it went, until the waiting people of God were fully aroused. [Between the spring and autumn of 1844] Fanaticism disappeared before this proclamation like early frost before the rising sun. Believers saw their doubt and perplexity removed, and hope and courage animated their hearts. The work was free from those extremes which are ever manifested when there is human excitement without the controlling influence of the word and Spirit of God.” (The Great Controversy p.400)
She claims: “Of all the great religious movements since the days of the apostles, none have been more free from human imperfection and the wiles of Satan than was that of the autumn of 1844”(The Great Controversy p.401)
She writes “He [Miller] had devoted two years to the study of the Bible when, in 1818, he reached the solemn conviction that in about twenty five years Christ would appear for the redemption of his people.
White does not inform the reader that Miller first taught that date to be1843 (though it is there by inference) and changed it to 1844. If we do the math 1818 +25 =1843, not 1844.
Is The Great Controversy correct! White then refers to the Millerite’s who taught that Jesus would return and destroy the earth by fire on October 22, 1844.From 1818 until 1843 (a 25 year span), Miller preached that Christ would return between March 1842 and March 1843. He changed the date to 1844, and was wrong several times. And is still wrong today; just as others who have given dates.
She states even though “Miller and his associates at first believed that the 2300 days would terminate in the spring of 1844, whereas the prophecy points to the autumn of that year. The misapprehension of this point brought disappointment and perplexity to those who had fixed upon the earlier date as the time of the Lord’s coming. But this did not in the least affect the strength of the argument showing that the 2300 days terminated in the year 1844, and that the great event represented by the cleansing of the sanctuary must then take place” (pp.328-329)
Thus the 2300 days have stayed with the Adventist movement. So what happened? "...instead of coming to the earth at the termination of the 2300 days in 1844, Christ instead entered the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary to perform the closing work of atonement preparatory to His coming" (The Great Controversy, p. 422)
The book The Great Controversy has false doctrines, embellishments, and wrong timing as fulfilled prophecy and it even teaches a works based salvation. This is what they want to hand out to people.
White taught in this book that Christ had not completed the Atonement. that the full atonement wasn't made on the cross of Calvary. The Lord began completing this in 1844 in the Holy place of the heavenly sanctuary. How did she know this? From a vision… this is heresy from an angel, an angel whom Paul warned of in Gal.1 who came and preached another gospel. Only the biblical illiterate can belief this
"After the passing of the time of expectation, in 1844, Adventists still believed the Saviour's coming to be very near; they held that ...the work of Christ as man's intercessor before God had ceased. Having given the warning of the judgment near, they felt that their work for the world was done, and they lost their burden of soul for the salvation of sinners.... All this confirmed them in the belief that probation had ended, or, as they then expressed it, 'the door of mercy was shut'" (Great Controversy, p. 268).
"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 act of His ministration in behalf on man -- to perform the work of investigative judgment and to make an atonement for all who are shown to be entitled to its benefits" (The Great Controversy, p. 480).
"Now while our great High Priest IS MAKING THE ATONEMENT for us, we should seek to become perfect in Christ" (The Great Controversy, p. 623). This is a man centered salvation message. It detracts from the completed work that Jesus did, it is not different than the Roman Catholic church.
“Our acts, our words, even our most secret motives, all have their weight in deciding our destiny ... though ...forgotten by us, they [our works] will bear their testimony to justify or condemn. '(The Great Controversy, 486-490.)
“When any have sins remaining upon the books of record, unrepented of and unforgiven, their names will be blotted out of the book of life ..... (The Great Controversy, 483.)
So if you have a sin that even you do not know of that you have not repented from, your excluded according to the prophetess of Seventh day Adventism. This is just as heretical as the roman Catholics view of justification. Not to be too concerned because
"The work of the investigative judgment and THE BLOTTING OUT OF SIN IS TO BE ACCOMPLISHED before the second advent of our Lord" (The Great Controversy, p. 485)
So what happens to all those who died before the completion of the atonement?
She even said men would have no mediator "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."
WITHOUT a mediator? Then you have no gospel or salvation. So what of those in the coming Tribulation? No worries, the Tribulation already happened.
Hebrews 9:26 "Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been MANIFESTED TO PUT AWAY SIN BY THE SACRIFICE OF HIMSELF."
Hebrews 10:10 By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” V.12 "...but He, HAVING OFFERED ONE SACRIFICE FOR SINS FOR ALL TIME, sat down at the right hand of God”
John 19:30 "When Jesus therefore had received the sour wine, He said, "IT IS FINISHED!" Ellen G. White says NO its not! By her revelation of an angel everyone in Christianity that believes Jesus death and resurrection was sufficient is wrong, for nearly 1900 years! Her assertion is a serious challenge to God. John the Baptist announced Jesus as the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world." Either He did or He did not. The same arguments one may give to Catholics they can give to the Adventists.
Rom 5:9-10 “having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son…”
"As the priest, in removing the sins from the sanctuary, confessed them upon the head of the scapegoat, so CHRIST WILL PLACE ALL THESE SINS UPON SATAN, the originator and instigator of sin” (The Great Controversy, p. 485).
Heb 7:27 for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.
Heb 9:12 with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.” Past tense.
I Peter 2:24...and HE HIMSELF BORE OUR SINS in His body on the cross.”
All this is denied from her vision than clearly it is false
