and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness” and they that “received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved, will be left to receive strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” 2
“Not until this condition shall be reached and union of the church with the world, shall be fully accomplished throughout Christendom, will the fall of Babylon be complete. The change is a progressive one, and the perfect fulfillment of Revelation 14:8, is yet future.” [But is this what we are seeing in the church, right now? January 10, 2015? a church, every church, every being, being judged, by its actions and words?]
This quote of Ellen White writes of shaking -division- She continues. . . . “There are many of these who have never seen the special truths for this time. Not a few are dissatisfied with their present condition and and are longing for clearer light. They look in vain for the image of Christ in the churches with which they are connected. As these bodies depart further and further from the truth, and ally themselves more closely with the world, the difference between the two classes will widen, and it will finally result in separation. The time will come when those who love God supremely can no longer remain in connection with such as are “lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.”
[Are you listening? Do you understand entire “churches” will go out of the light, they are collectively as a group of people, denying the power of the Holy Spirit, and loving pleasure more than God]
“Revelation 18 points to the time when, as the result of rejecting the three fold warning of Revelation
14:6-12, the church (The Seventh Day Adventist Church – Organization) will have fully reached the condition foretold by the second angel, [“And another angel, the second one, followed saying “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, who made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of fornication.” “Babylon has been a golden cup in the hand of the Lord, intoxicating all the earth. The nations have drunk of her wine; therefore the nations are going mad” (Jeremiah 51:7: 25:15) It seems that the drink of Babylon’s wine of fornication refers to her seducing the inhabitants of the earth to worship the beast and his image to receive the mark of the beast upon the right hand or the forehead. There is still time to come out of Babylon and worship and serve the true God. (Revelation 18:1-4)” THE REVELATION OF JESUS, Ranko Stefanovic p. 447 Judgement begins with God’s Church first! and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
(I Peter 4:17) there are some still in Babylon. “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” (Revelation 18:4)
However, there are two angels, and the Second Angel is repeating the principal of God, in (Isaiah 63:10 -11) “But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them. Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?”
Where is the angel, who Moses talked to, to bring the people out of Egypt? Where is He, that put His
Holy Spirit within Moses? Babylon, the picture of God’s people, sinking into sin against God, by denying His Law and Prophets is the “sin” Daniel talks about in Daniel 9. When Daniel 11, is fulfilled, then Michael stands up to defend those whose names are in His book.
“And he [The devil] shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. (Daniel 11:45).
The devil comes down to earth, to plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas and glorious holy mountain. This prophecy is fulfilled. Jerusalem, Jews and God’s Holy Spirit is surrounded with enemies, just as the Children of Israel were surrounded by the armies of Pharaoh! Then, and only then, do we see Daniel stand up, to stand in his lot, to pray the prayer, when Gabriel came down to Babylon, to be told what would happen in the Last Days.
Daniel 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
Why does THE STONE, become a great mountain, to fill the WHOLE EARTH? Daniel 7:26…The Judgement in Heaven, has sat, they have taken away the dominion of Satan, they have sent out Michael the Archangel with his armies, Jesus the one, worthy to open the “7th Seal” has found Laodicea, not hot not warm, and will spit her out of his mouth.
Dan 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be
diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
Dan 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Dan 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
Dan 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
God’s Kingdom and dominion has been given to the saints of the most High! And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.
Let Ellen White continue:
Revelation 18 points to the time when, as the result of rejecting the threefold warning of Revelation 14:6-12, the church, (The Seventh Day Adventist Church as an Organization, cannot enter Heaven) it will have fully reached the condition foretold by the second angel, and the people of God still in Babylon will be called upon to separate from her communion. This message is the last that will ever be given to the world; and it will accomplish its work. When those that “believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonian 2:12), shall be left to receive strong delusion and to believe a lie, then the light of truth will shine upon all whose hearts are open to receive it, and all the children of the Lord, that remain in Babylon will heed the call: “Come out of her, My people” (Revelation 18:4)
There must have been a question in the mind of Ellen White. Would her voice be heard? God told his disciples just as he was about to leave them, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” Mat 28:20
The Word of God has reached all Nations. The Holy Spirit is being withdrawn. We stand before God, alone, like Jacob in the wilderness. An Angel of God, fought with Jacob. However when the dawn began to come on Jacob, this was not just an angel, it was Jacob fighting with God.
And my dear friends, when you understand the Angels of God, whatever their name, you do not want to fight with your “angel.” “Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.” (Exodus 23:20-21).
This angel of God, is not someone you should ignore, or fight with. Do not provoke Him. For He will not pardon your transgression. For the name of Jesus Christ is in Him.
Do not tell me, “David sinned, so can I!” Do not give an excuse for not having enough time, to
realize when Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn Thee, Go and sin no more.” Mary stopped sinning! Mary knew she was in the wrong place, looking for the wrong man, when she found the love of her life, was Jesus Christ. She became a prostitute no more. There is evidence she left with Mary the Mother of Jesus, before Titus sacked Jerusalem in 70 A.D. It would be for Mary the one close to Jesus, who would see the Mother of Jesus, as someone she would eagerly take care of on the journey north away from the persecution of the Jews, who followed Jesus the Jew.
Jesus was not thinking to change the times and laws of God. He was saying for Mary to stop sinning against God and man.
I have a friend, a young woman, I dearly enjoy and love. She has used her body, her love, her friendship, to find relationships. And in her time, of life, in feeling she needed a man, she became addicted to the “wine of the wrath of fornication.” Dear heart, you are hard worker, fun child of God, and I pray for you, like my own daughter. You know I love you, if you are reading this. . .and feel the tug of the holy Spirit, please see Jesus as your friend and Bridegroom! And YOU His Bride! And go and sin no more.
God cannot change His laws. The sin of David, was transferee to his sons, as sin always is, when sons and daughters cannot trust the word of their parents, who show they human and in error, as bad examples. There is no excuse for sin! If there were, everyone would go to heaven.
We are living in solemn times, and man cannot judge man! But some sins are shouted on the housetops, with everyone looking in, because it is an open sin. Not some thought in the mind! But a thought that took time, to plan, to play, to ride, to fly, to make it open, for everyone’s eye, that “faith” in God, would set them free…..from sin? And there would be no cause, and no effect of disobeying Him, the one who must die, to free us from the punishment we deserve, when we choose to re- crucify Jesus again.
Why is “sin” against God, turning us back “again.” to the 7th Angel, to the 7thChurch, to the 7 Trumpets, 7 Thunders, 7 Candlesticks, 7 Angels?
Ellen White asked her angel to go and give the gospel to her friends who would not listen to her. Her
Angel said, “If they won’t listen to the God of Mount Sinai, they won’t listen to me.” That angel you will agree, had loyalty to the God of Mount Sinai, and the finger on the hand, that wrote his Law in Stone.
“Come out of her My People.” (Revelation 1:4) Excerpts out of: THE TRIUMPH OF GODS LOVE, Ellen White, p. 230. GREAT CONTROVERSY p. 389-390.
This picture of Ellen White and her relationship with her angel, and their conversations, and this particular insight, of her wondering if what she is saying, will find anyone listening. It is the Angel, of God who comes down, to say, “Come out of her, (Babylon and the lie, there is no sin, surely you shall never die.) Adam and did not die in a moment. They suffered as they saw the first leaf, “die” and fall off the trees. They suffered because they saw a Tree Die, because of their sin…
Trees in Prophecy, are mature Christians. Seeing bright lights go out, men who once were great lights, full of the Holy Spirit, defending truth, justice and the American way, are far and few between the hero we long to meet and worship at His feet.
