“Again, the command is given: ‘Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show My
people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” It is not the wicked world, but those whom the Lord designates as “My people,” that are to be reproved for their transgressions. He declares further. “Yet they seek Me daily, and delight to know My ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God.” (Isaiah 58:1,2.) Here is brought to view a class who think themselves righteous and appear to manifest great interest in the service of God; but the stern and solemn rebuke of the Searcher of hearts proves them to be trampling upon the divine precepts.”
“Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
(Isaiah 56:1,2, 6,7.)
“The prophet [Isaiah] points out the ordinance which has been forsaken: “And they that shall be of
thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shalt honor Him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: (Isaiah 58:12-13). This prophecy also applies in our time. The breach was made in the law of God when the Sabbath was changed by the Roman power [Dark Ages]. But the time has come for that divine institution to be restored. The breach is to be repaired and the foundation of many generations to be raised up.
“Hallowed by the Creator’s rest a, and blessing, the Sabbath was kept by Adam in his innocence in
holy Eden; by Adam, fallen yet repentant, when he was driven from his happy estate. It was kept by all the patriarchs, from Abel to righteous Noah, to Abraham, to Jacob. When the chosen people were in bondage in Egypt, many, in the midst of prevailing idolatry, lost their knowledge of God’s law; but when the Lord delivered Israel, He proclaimed His law in awful grandeur to the assembled multitude, [Mount Sinai] that they might know His will and fear and obey Him forever.
“From that day to the present the knowledge of God’s law has been preserved in the earth, and
the Sabbath of the fourth commandment has been kept. Though the “man of sin” succeeded in trampling underfoot God’s holy day, yet even in the period of her supremacy there were hidden in secret places, faithful souls who paid it honor. Since the Reformation, there have been some in every generation to maintain its observance. Though often in the midst of reproach and persecution, a constant testimony has been borne to the perpetuity of the law of God and the sacred obligation of the creation Sabbath.
“These truths, as presented in Revelation 14 in connection with “the everlasting gospel” will distinguish the church of Christ at the time of His appearing. For as the result of the threefold message it is announced: “Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus: And this message is
the last to be given before the coming of the Lord. Immediately following its proclamation the Son of man is seen by the prophet, coming in glory to reap the harvest of the earth.” Triumph of God’s Love, pl 267 Great Controversy p. 452-454
GODS PEOPLE DELIVERED
“When the protection of human laws shall be withdrawn from those who honor the law of God, there will be, in different lands, a simultaneous movement for their destruction. As the time appointed in the decrees draws near, the people will conspire to root out the hated sect. It will be determined to strike in the one night a decisive blow, which shall utterly silence the voice of dissent and reproof.
” . .It is now, in the hour of utmost extremity, that the God of Israel will interpose for the deliverance of His chosen. Saith the Lord: Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel. And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. (Isaiah 30:29-30).
DELIVERED BY HAILSTONES, FIRE, FLAME, & TEMPEST
“By the people of God a voice, clear and melodious, is heard, saying, “Look up,” and lifting their eyes to the heavens, they behold the bow of promise. The black, angry clouds that covered the firmament are parted, and like Stephen they look up steadfastly into heaven and see the glory of God and the Son of man seated upon His throne. In His divine form they discern the marks of His humiliation; and from His lips they hear the request presented before His FAther and the holy angels: “Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.” John 17:24. Again a voice, musical and triumphant, is heard saying: “They come! they come! holy, harmless, and undefiled. They have kept the word of My patience; they shall walk among the angels;” and the pale , quivering lips of those who have held fast their faith utter a shout of victory.
“It is at midnight [This corresponds with the sound of the shofars a midnight in Jerusalem, when yearly Jesus our High Priest, places the “sins” “confessed” to God, on the Head of the Scapegoat Lucifer] The sun appears shining in its strength. Signs and wonders follow in quick succession. The wicked look with terror and amazement upon the scene, while the righteous behold with solemn joy the token s of their deliverance. Everything in nature seems turned out of its course. The streams cease to flow. Dark, heavenly clouds come up and clash against each other. [The 7th vial of the 7th Angel is pouring out the 7th plague of hail] In the midst of the angry heavens is one clear space of indescribable glory, whence comes the voice of God like the sound of many waters, saying: “It is done.” Revelation 16:17.
Daniel 12:2 will be fulfilled: “It is a midnight,” on the final Day of Atonement, Jesus places on the head of Lucifer, all the sins of the world, confessed on the head of Jesus Christ, brought into the Heavenly Sanctuary, taken out by Jesus Our High Priest, to place on the real “Scapegoat” Lucifer! Hurrah!
“And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. Dan 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Yom Kippur: Perhaps the Last Day of Atonement on Earth? because like last year, the Day of Atonement is surrounded by the Blood Moons [The symbol of corruption in the Priesthood] on Passover, and a few days after The Day of Atonement.
The day begin with self examination, to repent of known sins, to remove all sins against God, before midnight, of the Jewish “News Years Eve”, called THE DAY OF ATONEMENT. It begins at sunset Tuesday September 22, 2015 with a day of fasting. Israel is shut down! The roads are closed including all highways! At midnight the Shofars [Ram’s Horns] will sound to welcome in the 50th Year of Jubilee and hopefully The New Year will find, the male and female angels on the Mercy Seat in agreement the Ten Commandments are the rule on earth as they are in Heaven. On this day forgiveness of sins is also asked of God.
Figuratively, Michael the Archangel, The Great Prince of God/Jesus Our High Priest who came as the only begotten Son of God, is worthy to end the Great Controversy between Michael and Lucifer, and place all sins confessed to God, by gathering up the “prayers” and “confessions of sin” to place these sins on the Head of Lucifer. Therefore: it is possible next year at Yom Kippur, the Trumpets will give the “certain sound” that Adam and Eve were anxious to hear. The Garden of Eden will no longer be a place to experience the difference between good and evil! Hurrah!
Comments by Connie Ordelheide Anderson:
Had the Children of Israel known it would be the “works” of one man and his family in the camp, that would bring about a punishment for the Children of Israel during war, there would be no Achan in the camp, stealing what belonged to God, from the fall of Jericho. No man can take the credit for God destroying Jericho with an earthquake. What belonged to God, was all the spoils found in the Fall of Jericho, because no man can take the credit for what all God had done that day! And what all, God will do in the future, to protect and defend those disciples in His army who are called THE DEFENDERS OF TRUTH.
I was told by Lonnie Melashanko at Camp Meeting in Lincoln, Nebraska and Union College View Church. “We will not see the signs in the sky, like the Dark Day, that brought an awareness of the 7 Trumpets being fulfilled again.” To God’s credit, He has humbled the very best, and the very least of His servants, to bow down and serve Him, as brothers and sisters in His Army. Peter let us know, it is not a sin, to make mistakes! It is then Jesus said to Peter, “Feed My Sheep.”
Being humbled by God, seems to be a prerequisite for the greatest men and woman to be humbled first, before they gave their best sermons ever!
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” (Last verses in Luke 13)
P. S. Sorry this post is so long. Time is running out. This message was opened by 9-11-2001. It’s already been 13 years, to see we might be guilty of trying to silence the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking to His Prophets and Saints!
