Welcome to Adventism

Original Adventism consisted of all Christian denominations that were looking for the advent [perousia] or coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in great power and glory back to this earth to reign. However misunderstanding the prophetic interpretation at first by all the fire and brimstone preachers of Adventism in the early 1800 era believing that the earth was God's sanctuary to be cleansed, was common to all Christian denominations.

The prophecy: "Unto 2300 days the sanctuary shall be cleansed."--Daniel 8:14 K.J.V. was in fact speaking of the heavenly temple where Christ is making continual intercession and the final atonement as our great and high priest. Today, only the Seventh-day Adventist [Adventism] have emerged as the champions of Eschatology [last days events] exponents declaring that the prophetic books of Daniel and the Revelation of Jesus Christ are complimentary and therefore explain themselves.
In the midst 1800 when the industrial revolution began, it replaced all interests in the Protestant Reformation and the churches turned away from the Bible and had no ears for the Three Angel's Messages of Revelation 14 and the great and bitter disappointment of 1844 A.D. seen in Revelation ch.10 last verses, they even opposed it.

Babylon The Great or Adventism? Which came or comes first?

Adam and Eve received from God the Seventh Day Sabbath before they sinned according to Genesis 2:1-3. It was the Lord Jesus Christ who gave it to them according to the Gospel of John 1:1-3: "All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made." Therefore our Lord Jesus Christ can claim to be the Lord of the Seventh Day Sabbath: "For the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day." Matthew 12:8

Soon as Adam and Eve sinned, they both started to look for the "advent" or coming of the Messiah Jesus Christ to pay for their sins and so with became the first "Seventh Day Adventists" [SDA] in the world.

Then came Babylon through Nimrod the mighty hunter building a tower that would reach unto heaven. Here God confused the languages. So today in Christianity there is a confusion of biblical languages. Just as the fall of literal Babylon led to its eventual overthrow as a nation, so the fall of its spiritual successor will lead to its destruction. The tragic end of all false Christianity along with all other false religions, testifies to God's requirement of purity of faith.

Those who are called by God to call His own people out of fallen Babylon today are identified as keeping the Commandments of God and having the faith of Jesus Christ [Revelation 14:6-12;12:17;18:1-4].
Sunday is not the Lord's day nor the Sabbath, but the making of the great Mother Whore of Revelation 17, her many daughters and its worldliness. Gems of truth are to be gathered up, and separated from the companionship of error.

 

 Seventh-day Adventists [SDA] beliefs are those of their divine teacher the holy Bible. The Bible teaches that if you only violate one of the 10 Commandments such as the Seventh-day Sabbath [Saturday], you are guilty of all 'Ten' and in heaven's eyes on the very same level as an adulterer or murderer [James 2:10-12]. The Sunday-Sabbath is popular with the world and a mark of rebellion against God. "Friendship with the world is enmity with God"-James 4:4. Those who insist in keeping on sinning belong to the Devil [1.John 3:8] and are of the synagogue or church of Satan because the children are the children of sin [ Revelation 2:9 ]. They do not keep their baptismal vow to die to sin and self [ Romans 6 ]

Heaven paid such an high price for our salvation
should we then not stop sinning [sins that the 10 Commandments point out], and accept the divine grace and power of God? The fallen churches only teach the 'milk' of the word and refuse to go on to maturity or perfection the Bible urges us [ see Hebrews 5:12-6:6 ] and do not give you the 'solid food' of an adult. They are trapped by sin and Satan like birds in a cage [ Revelation 18 ].
Adventists are the happiest, healthiest, and holiest people in the world. Holy, not intrinsically, but in dedication to our Lord Jesus Christ, His Coming, His Sabbath, and His work for us on the cross and in the sanctuary above. What do they believe? Why are they calling God's people out of the fallen churches [fallen Babylon]? Are Adventists saved by grace or law keeping? Why are Ex-Adventists spewing poison? Antiochus or papal Rome? How are we saved? Is the free gift conditional? Why does the Gospel of Revelation [the last book of the Bible] include the judgment?
Our GOD of love has become angry over the spiritual battle of ARMAGEDDON, the battle between good and evil. He is pouring out the seven last plagues very soon, so read on! The Bible speaks of His wrath to come! Babylon is fallen, is fallen......"Come out of her My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."--Revelation 18:1-4.

Introduction
Seventh-day Adventists firmly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as their only Saviour from sin and that Jesus is now Christianity's great and high priest in the heavenly sanctuary temple of God above.

Seventh-day Adventists are named after Jesus Christ being the only Lord of the Seventh-day Sabbath [Mark 2:27] and this being the only true Lord's day as mentioned in Revelation 1:10. Adventist is of course referring to the coming or advent of Jesus, specializing in the teachings of His return and eager to see Him come back. Adventists are in love with Jesus!
 

   In 1988 the Seventh-day Adventist church produced its first comprehensive creed book named the "27 Fundamentals" and since have added one more [the baptismal vow was all we ever needed before], but it failed to show the churches pedigree, biblical mandate, and origin as a movement before it became a church. This website will show you missing parts and why she calls all other churches "fallen Babylon."

Bible verses in red and my comments in black! Seventh-day Adventists learned the prophecies of Daniel from the Baptist William Miller and Christ's Seventh-day Sabbath from the Seventh-day Baptist church.


The Start of the Church

Seventh-day Adventism started off with the prophetic book of Daniel because it was to be unsealed at the time of the end, i.e. in these last days. Daniel chapter one teaches the superiority of vegetarianism over a meat diet. Daniel chapter two with the metal image revealing that the Christ event [advent] is near by the past great world empires.
 
           

Then Daniel chapter 7 the judgment in the heavenly sanctuary is taking place with the imminent return [advent] of our Lord Jesus Christ. Missing on this picture is the rock Christ Jesus [1.Corinthians 10:4] that smashes all the earthly kingdoms and empires at His Advent.
 
The most prominent verses in Daniel 8:13,14 also speaks of Jesus and His work of judgment in the heavenly sanctuary being opposed by Demons working via the little horn power that grew exceedingly great. Jesus Himself in Matthew 24:15 shows that the 2300 days prophecy of Daniel 8:13,14 was still ahead of His day, i.e., in the future: "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, [whoso readeth, let him understand:]."--Matthew 24:15
"How long shall be the vision, concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?"---Daniel 8:13b
So Daniel 8:13,14 could not possibly apply to Antiochus Epiphanies as some are asserting today. Jesus words also prove to us that the little horn of Daniel chapter eight is also the same little horn as in Daniel chapter seven. What would Antiochus Epiphanies have to do with the end time, the book of Daniel was written for? Nothing. But everything to do with the papacy and Adventism today! Daniel 8 repeats chapter seven with slight differences. The reason for that is that chapter seven was written in the Chaldean language and chapter eight in Hebrew. It is utterly impossible for Antiochus to be the antichrist because he did not live in the time of Christ. The destruction of the earthly temple was not the abomination but God's will because the sacrificial system had ended by the dying of Jesus being the supreme sacrifice that temple had existed for. Therefore Jesus is referring to the papacy as the abomination by desolating Christ from the heavenly sanctuary. Antiochus was not Greek but a Persian king from the Seleucid dynasty.

Daniel and the Revelation
The pioneers of the Seventh-day Adventist church soon found that the symbolisms in Daniel are the same or very similar as in the Revelation of Jesus Christ and therefore the Bible is its own interpreter. The little prophetic book of Daniel is seen in Revelation chapter 10 and explained below. It is not hard to find the truth held by Seventh-day Adventist mirrored in Revelation. Chapter one has John receiving his vision on the Lord's day [v.10] and Jesus our Lord is Lord of the Sabbath day [Mark 2:27].
Then going through the church ages, the second last church of Philadelphia, meaning brotherly love, Jesus said that He has set before them an open door that no man can shut. Seventh-day Adventists see this open door to be the door from the holy into the most Holy place of the heavenly sanctuary temple.

                     


       Our opposition has tried to shut the open door for us ever since and in the face of Jesus. [Revelation 11:19;15:5]. Adventism arose in the 1800's from the great Advent Awakening studying the 'Advent' or return of the Lord Jesus Christ and from the Millerite Movement. "Unto 2300 days, then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."-----Daniel 8:14 [This is the first pillar of Seventh Day Adventism]. Coinciding with the sanctuary day of Atonement [At-One-Ment], also known as Yom Kippur or hour of the investigative judgment. With the real Sabbath completing the Ten Commandments, Revelation 14:6-12 now applies directly to the Seventh-day Adventist church, the Remnants or leftovers of original Adventism.
"The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath."---Mark 2:27,28. Notice that Jesus says that His weekly Sabbath [singular] is 'for us' compared to the 7 annual Sabbaths [plural] in Colossians 2 that are 'against us'.
"I was in the spirit on the Lord's day."---Revelation 1:10  "And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath."---Acts 13:42  Here we see that we the Gentiles did not say, come to us tomorrow, the next day to preach to us on our new Sabbath, but next Sabbath. This is showing us that there was no change in the early church.

"For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before Me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before Me, saith the Lord."---Isaiah 66:22,23.
You notice here that Christ's holy Sabbath day [Saturday] will be kept for eternity. These are the words of God Himself speaking through Isaiah directly.
Jesus Christ said: "Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one title shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.......you have heard of the old time, Thou shalt not kill; ...but I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment.....ye have heard that it was said by them of old time. Thou shalt not commit adultery. But I say unto you, That whosoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery already in his heart."---Matthew 5:18,21,22,27,28.
The very same two of the Ten Commandments Jesus applied spirituality to, is also quoted by James who tells us that when we violated only one of the Ten Commandments, then we are guilty of having transgressed all of the Ten. It is so utterly amazing that Christianity allows itself to violate the fourth of the 10 Commandments when Jesus warns to the slightest dot or comma not to be neglected. This blatant violation by fallen Babylon came about when they stopped their Sunday-Sabbath keeping and by rejecting the "Three Angel's Messages" of Revelation 14:6-12. Then suffered a moral fall from which there will be no recovery. That is why God is calling you out of modern Babylon [Rev.18:1-3].
"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For he/she that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.
So speak ye, and do so, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty."
---James 2:10-12.  Ecclesiastes 12:13,14 shows us that the old testament people will be judged by the same Ten Commandments.


Seventh-day Adventists were at one time Sunday-Sabbath keepers until they saw Christ's Seventh-day in the heavenly Sanctuary Temple and changing from being First-day Adventists to becoming Seventh-day Adventists.
"And let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them. ....and thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee. And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold......and look that thou make them after the pattern, which was showed thee in the mount."---Exodus 25:8,16,17,40.
"Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as He had appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen."---Acts 7:44.

"Now of the things we have spoken, this is the sum: We have such an high Priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
......who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God."
---Hebrews 8:1-5

Moses was admonished by God, it says, which served as example and shadow of heavenly things. Why then does Christianity ignore the priestly work of our Lord Jesus Christ in heaven? The plan of salvation was played out in the wilderness sanctuary. Advent means Perousia or the coming of JESUS, hence Adventists. In the 1800's most of Christianity believed that a 1000 years of peace must come first and that the world is getting better and better. GOD sent Adventism to correct errors and promote the Three Angel's messages of Revelation 14! Seventh-day Adventists are named after JESUS. JESUS is the Lord of the Seventh-day Sabbath in the New Testament and an Adventist is awaiting the Advent or appearing of the Son of GOD.

Seventh-day Adventist Christians are born again believers who are in love with Jesus Christ and the Bible, saved by grace alone in the atoning blood of JESUS. S.D.A.'S believe that salvation is a free gift of GOD and cannot be earned, but being saved and recreated for the very purpose of good works [ Eph. 2:8-10], thus, our Sabbath-keeping is not legalism. Not only did our Lord JESUS save us on the cross, but also from our present sins being our Saviour not in but from sin [Matthew 1:21]. JESUS regarded His Sabbath day so important that He even rested in His deathbed over the complete period.

Seventh-day Adventist Founders
Critics of the Seventh-day Adventist church like to make out that a certain Mrs. Ellen G. White was the founder and gave the church all her doctrines. But this is not so. Anyone reading the massive commentary on Daniel and the Revelation, will soon discover that Uriah Smith gave Adventism the most doctrines directly from the Bible. The Adventist Pioneers came from all different Christian denominational  backgrounds. Therefore each brought with them a another doctrine. This was the first truly Ecumenical Council without having to forsake the Bible. They would study the Bible together until late into the night and arrived at fuller truth. Only when they could not agree, was Ellen G. White taken up in vision and shown truth from error. Seventh-day Adventists have a daily study plan. For an ex-Adventist to say that he was 52 years in our church and then went out to see if he was truly Christian is an oxy moron, like I read it in a forum recently.  

Adventism in the Bible:
 

Revelation chapter 10

In the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the last book of the Bible, we see in chapter 10 a mighty angel having a little book opened. From this language we infer that this little book in the hands of this mighty angel was at one time closed.

Which book of the Bible was at one time closed? There is only one book in the Bible that was at one time closed.  God told the prophet Daniel : But you, Oh Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.---Daniel 12:4
When did scientific knowledge increase? In the early 1800's with the many modern inventions and then with the unsealing of the prophetic book of Daniel biblical knowledge increased. The running to and fro? Travel also increased with the invention of the steam engine, then the Otto 4 cycle petrol and diesel and finally the jet engines.
Than Daniel 12:5-9 says: Then I Daniel looked, and, behold there stood other two, the one on this side of the river, and on that side of the bank of the river. And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by him that lives forever that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
And I heard, but I understood not, then said I, Oh Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And He said, Go thy way oh Daniel; for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

We see here that Daniel first called Him a man but later Oh God. Then also the time period mentioned here. In Jewish or Hebrew reckoning, time is a year, times is two years and a half a time makes 3 1/2 years and the Hebrew calendar has 30 days in a month which makes it a time period of 1260 days in which he, the little horn or anti-christ, would accomplish to scatter the holy people of God. All the Protestant Reformers unitedly declared this little horn power that grew exceedingly great to be the Roman Papacy when it was placed on the throne of the fallen Roman Empire that reigned for 1260 days of prophetic years from 538 A.D. to 1798 A.D. The decree of Emperor Justinian came into effect when Rome was freed in 538 and ended when the Pope was taken off his throne in 1798 by the French and received the deadly wound which would heal again.

Now the mighty angel standing on the waters is also seen in Revelation chapter ten declaring the same thing, namely that time will be no longer. In other words, we arrived at the end time. No more prophetic time set after this time period of the 1800's. [v.6b]. Then we see the great and bitter disappointment suffered during the advent awakening of the 1800's when they proclaimed the prophetic code of Daniel to the world:  And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hands of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey; and soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And he said unto me, Thou must prophecy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
Rev.10:8-11
Note, in Daniel, the mighty angel is seen standing on the river and the land because it seems like a local affair, but in Revelation He stands on the sea and the land indicating a worldwide affair reaching every earth dweller, nation, tongue, and people.

Fire and Brimstone preachers
This has direct reference to the First-day Adventists of the Millerite Movement who had with great joy studied, digested and then proclaimed the coming of the Lord Jesus to reign with great power and glory. The bitter disappointment that followed when the Lord did not come was similar to the disappointment of the early church and also due to the ignorance of Christianity not knowing anything about the sanctuary and secondly, papal Rome had so obscured the saving grace and work of our high priest in heaven.

Christians in that century thought that the sanctuary was the earth or portion of it and God came to cleanse it by fire. This suited the fire and brimstone preachers of the 1800's very well.

Jesus Christ in the heavenly Sanctuary

First-day Adventists then were eager to find out what went wrong and studied the sanctuary service. This led them to see many portions of Scripture telling us that the earthly was a copy of the original sanctuary in heaven.

Now they saw Jesus's ministry as the Christians great and high priest, interceding and presenting our prayers to the Father. When the First-day Adventists saw the Ten Commandments under the Mercy Seat in heaven, they had no choice but to start genuine Sabbath keeping and so became Seventh-day Adventists. The Bible says that Jesus did come after all with the clouds of heaven, but not to this earth, instead near to His Father to sit in judgment. So if Jesus came near to the Father, it means Jesus moved from the ministry of the holy into the most holy place of the sanctuary. " I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought Him near before Him." --- Daniel 7:13. This means that before the day of judgment began in 1844, Jesus was not near the Father [The Ancient of days], but brought Him near.

 Adventists have proclaimed the prophetic books of Daniel and the Revelation ever since, but it has been rejected and opposed by all the churches of Christendom. They know nothing about these prophecies, but instead use Darby's dispensationalism which originated in the 1800's and a mix of preterism/futurism, secret rapture and muttering in tongues.

  Now what do the waters represent in prophecy? Rev.17:15 declares it to be a sea or masses of people. Daniel only saw a river, but in Revelation we see an ocean. In the original manuscripts they are no chapter divisions and so we see Rev.10 followed on directly by ch.11 which speaks about the heavenly sanctuary temple of God where the worshippers are being measured or judged. And the teachings of that sanctuary being trod under foot for 42 month which is the very same time period of the 1260 days of prophetic years, 42 month are 1260 days in the Hebrew calendar. It is also given as a time, time and a dividing or half a time, meaning 3 1/2 literal years or 1260 prophetic years.

"And there was given me a reed like unto a rod, and the angel stood, saying, rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and to the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophecy a thousand two hundred and threescore days clothed in sackcloth."---
Revelation 11:1-3.

No chapter divisions
In the original new testament, there were no chapter divisions and were put in by the translators. Here we can see that Revelation 10 is not only about Daniels prophecy and the advent of Jesus, but the heavenly sanctuary judgment or measuring. The time of 42 month are the same as the 1260 mentioned in both verses.

Daniel's 70 weeks or 490 days do not reach from Daniels time to Christ but 490 years do. Revelation also uses the day for a year prophetic code that all the Protestant Reformers used because we see the 10 days tribulation in Rev. 2:10 were actually 10 years of the Diocletian persecution in history of the early church.

Rev.11 refers of the judgment Daniel spoke about in 7:9,10 and again in Daniel 8:13,14 to which Jesus in Matthew 24:15 also pointed when we would see the abomination of desolation stand in the holy place of His sanctuary temple. The little horn and the abomination of desolation is a complete study in itself. Adventists saw the judgment of God in heaven arriving before the seven last plagues while the Good News of salvation was still being proclaimed according to Revelation 14:,6,7 including the Sabbath counteracting the new theory of evolution by Charles Darwin in 1844 when he made his first essay. Adventists saw the judgment of God arriving before the 7 last plagues while the Good News of the Gospel was still being proclaimed. {Rev 14:6,7]. The judgment according to the Hebrew sanctuary service is the day of Atonement, Yom Kippur [literally, the day of purging from sin].

 Revelation ch.11 also speaks of the French revolution because the French ended the papal rule and then Rev.11 ends with the judgment which is the theme of Daniel and Revelation 14. Evangelicals now speak of the two witnesses in Rev.11 as being Moses and Elijah. How could they possibly be humans representing the two trees, and the two candlesticks. This is again showing the utter ignorance of the sanctuary temple of God. The 7 branch candlestick and the oil have always represented the Holy Spirit bringing us light and power. And because it was the Holy Spirit which inspired the Word of God, those two witnesses were in mourning or sackcloth  for 1260 years forbidden by the papacy and finally here in France outlawed completely for 3 1/2 years being dead until they got up when all the Bible societies were formed. The old and new testament would be the better option for the 2 witnesses. "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet."--Psalms 119:105

2300 days or only 1150?
Because Daniel 8:14 says evenings an mornings, the modern Translators have taken the liberty to interfere with the prophecy. They think that the supplied word 'sacrifices' belongs there, but overrule the early translators by halving the date. For a new translation to obtain copyrights, the author has to change at least 25% of the original text. So we can say that all modern versions are really modern perversions of our Bible.
When the Hebrews referred to the daily sacrifices, they would use the word order 'morning and evening' sacrifices and not 'evening and morning' the way God named the days in Genesis as full and not half days. Daily administration of the sanctuary, and not sacrifices, would be a better translation. The 2300 days do not need the year day principle of prophetic interpretation because the day of atonement [at-one-ment] only occurred once a year and so the 2300 days are 'years' automatically. It is also known as the cleansing of the sanctuary, day of judgment and Yom Kippur to the Hebrews.

Same starting date!
The 2300 prophetic days of years in Daniel 8:14 have the very same starting date as the 70 weeks in Daniel 9:24 because in Daniel chapter 9, the angel Gabriel returned to explain to Daniel the part of the vision he did not understand regarding the time period:   And I Daniel fainted and was sick....and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it."---Daniel 8:27.
"yea, and while I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I now come forth to give thee skill and understanding......therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision. Seventy weeks are determined [cut off] upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, and make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy."---Daniel 9:21-24.
70 weeks or 490 days of years from Daniel's time brings us to the time Jesus came down as the Messiah and on His resurrection went to heaven to anoint the 'most Holy' place where the inauguration ceremony took place and as Hebrews 9:12 says, Jesus entered with His own blood into the 'holy' place to begin His priesthood.

Why do modern translators use the word 'determined' instead of 'cut off' in Daniel 8:14 when the earliest versions of the Septuagint and Vulgate give the single meaning of 'cutting off'?

Why then, it may be asked, did our translators render the word determined, when it so obviously means cut off? The answer is, they doubtless overlooked the connection between the eighth and ninth chapters, and considering it improper to render it cut off, when nothing was given which the seventy weeks could be cut off from, they gave the word its topical instead of its literal meaning. The angel of the Lord came to explain the time prophecy or the vision he had not understood in chapter eight. Which part was to be cut off? Obviously from where it reached to the end of time for Daniel 8:17-19 says it is for the time of the end. See our chart on the 2300 days page.

Cleansing the Temple is known as Yom Kippur, the day of atonement and judgment.  Here the final removal of sin takes place.  It is the final proclamation of the gospel, saying that GOD'S hour of judging has arrived now [see Revelation 14:6-12].

The Daily and Antiochus Epiphanes or the papacy?
The daily [tamid] which also means 'continual', applied not only to the sacrifices but also to the showbread, the lamps and the incense. But notice, the taking away only of the daily means, it did not reach the yearly, the day of atonement. Therefore the papal transgression ended in 1798. A.D. and did not reach the end of the 2300 days of years in 1844 A.D., the start of the yearly. The Hebrew literally reads that "from Him", that is, from the Prince of the host, the "daily" or "continual" was taken away. This "Prince of the host" is obviously Jesus Christ as seen from Daniel 9:25, the Messiah the Prince.
Why only the daily? The daily ministration of the sanctuary [defiling] only takes place in the first or holy department. The second apartment ministry, the yearly, which occurred only when the sanctuary was cleansed, wasn't in operation during the papal reign. True that as Antiochus defiled the sanctuary by offering a pig, so did the daily sacrifices with sin. Antiochus suspended all sanctuary temple services for three years which was not just the daily sacrifices but also the yearly. The yearly [Yom Kippur or day of atonement], is the most important and highest part of the sacrificial system, the 'yearly' would have most certainly been mentioned if Antiochus Epiphanes was meant here. But the text specifies the 'daily' and it certainly means the papacy, the man of sin, that took away Christ's sacrifice of sin from the heavenly sanctuary temple.

How did papal Rome take away from Christ?
"Irenaeus, also a falsely so called early church Father [forbidden religious title Matthew 23:9], wrote that "Mary was the cause of salvation for herself and the whole human race."--Dogmatic Constitution on the church,ch.8,II,56 pp.380-1. Vatican Council II, 1962-4.
"Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation. By her maternal charity, she cares for the brethren of her Son, who still journey on earth surrounded by dangers and difficulties, until they are led into their blessed home. Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and  Mediatrix." ibid p.382.
 
Professor A.A.Hoekema, not familiar with the sanctuary services of Jesus, thought that Seventh-day Adventism is a maze of doctrines and that is probably what he thought of the Bible as well and especially Daniel and the Revelation. Hoekema so twisted Adventism that he claimed that the S.D.A.'s made Satan the ultimate sin bearer. His twisting of the Bible is no different from that of the other churches who take the words of Jesus: "The Sabbath was made for man" -[kind], to mean that it was made for the Jews only. See Mark 2:27; Matthew 12:8;Genesis 2:1-3.  So here Jesus Himself says that the weekly Sabbath is "for"  us as compared to the seven annual ceremonial feast Sabbaths days that were "against " us [Colossians 2:14-17].When a person or church is all mixed up, the Bible calls them Babylon. Colossians 2:14-16 is always being used against Christ's holy Sabbath. In contents, it speaks of the rudiments of the world [see Col.2:8;20] which were the seven annual feasts Sabbath days and separate from the Sabbath of the Ten Commandments which God Himself wrote and which He calls My holy day. The Bible interprets itself when we compare Colossians ch.2 with Ephesians ch.2 and Hebrews 9:10 which reads: "Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, carnal ordinances." No serious Bible students can miss this. Ordinances are bylaws and we have them in every country or county.

FALLEN BABYLON
 

Babylon the Great Whore [Revelation 17]

Ancient Babylon was a mixture of religion and politics. The word Babylon means the gate of God. In the N.T. [New Testament], it stands also for confusion and whoredom by mixing worldliness [politics] with Godliness.

Babylon is so confused that it cannot tell the difference between obedience and legalism. Babylon is also said to deceive all nations by using sorceries [Revelation 18:23]. Babylon's sins have already been stockpiling up to heaven [Revelation 18:1-4]. Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city [Rev.14:8] "And that woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."--Rev.17:18. The woman is a symbol of the church. When pagan Rome morphed into papal Rome, they forced every citizen of every country in the Roman Empire to become Roman Catholic or face torture on the rack or burning at the stake. Papal Rome then set up their own Kings and Emperors to do her bidding. Napoleon was crowned by the Pope backwards. When a country ruler rebelled against the excesses of Rome, Rome would just blackmail him by threatening to order every Roman Catholic to stop paying taxes. And so it was, that the woman or church was also that city, namely, Vatican city.

Papal inquisitions bear witness to the fact that: And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.--- Revelation 17:6


Did you know that a dead person in the Roman Church must perform 3-4 miracles before he/she can become a saint? The Adventist church is taking the state of the dead from the Bible alone. The Bible says that only God has immortality [1.Timothy 6:16] and that the dead know nothing nor have they anymore a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun [Ecclesiastes 9:5,6], so who do you think is doing the miracles for the dead? Not God, because it is done in the name of a deceased person. It is the Devil.
In Protestantism, every born again Believer was a saint just as the Bible tells us. Contacting the dead, is the forbidden art of Necromancy.

Fallen Babylon likes to read the Bible this way:  "Here is the patience of the saints. Here are they that cannot possibly keep the commandments of God, despite having the faith of Jesus." Well this is not what it says, here is what the Bible really says: "Here is the patience of the saints. Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus."---Revelation 14:12

The Roman church has declared Mother Mary immaculate so that her child Jesus could not sin and therefore not be our example. Protestants say it a little bit different, that Jesus was born with the sinless nature of Adam before the fall so with contradicting Romans 1:3;8:3; Hebrews 2:16,17.. That also makes it impossible to follow Jesus. That only leaves the Seventh-Day Adventists who keep the commandments of God by the faith of Jesus because a Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ in overcoming sin. Not just the forgiveness of, but the forsaking of sins. We sing there is power in the blood, and so it is, plenty of it and we only need to ask.

The time would come when they [fallen Babylon] no longer endure sound doctrines but heap false teachers unto themselves and having a form or formal religion but denying the power thereof.
Another reason for the fall of modern Babylon is the definition of sin. Paul the apostle had not known sin except by the law that said, you must not covet. The apostle is quoting the Ten Commandments from Exodus 20. Babylon says that sin is separation from God. While this sounds true, the Devil and his ministers have transformed themselves into angels of light and are closing the gap between Babylon and god. Revelation 18 says that they are like hateful birds trapped in a cage. Demon possession is like that. The devil learned to rebirth Christians that love sin.


Confession
If the confession box in the Roman church gives license to sin, Once saved always saved by Protestants gives the same results.

Apostasy
An example of apostasy can be seen in Ex-Adventists like D.M. Canright whose poison is still being used against Adventists..
Then we have Dr. Desmond Ford and his followers with all theory and no practice, but keep on sinning. Because Ford when at Avondale College started to teach our new Pastors [Elders] that they can be saved on profession only and that the way they live, has no bearing on salvation, the Seventh-Day Adventist church is now deeply divided over this issue.

Nicky Gumble, the Anglican Pentecostal claims that salvation is not about rules but a relationship! He forgets that breaking the rules is also breaking the relationship! The forgiveness of sin must also be the forsaking of sin which is the breaking of the rules. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not grace plus Law plus Sabbath, but "Repent ye from sin" which is the transgression or violation of the Ten Commandments. What is a Christian? A Christian is not a follower of Christians but of Christ! Christ never went to church on Sundays so I cannot follow Him there! Fallen Babylon and fallen Adventists are not prepared to follow Jesus in the narrow way.

"By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments and His commandments are not grievous."---1.John 5:2,3. The Sabbath of Jesus is real grievous to non Adventist Christians by seeking the friendship of the world which is enmity with God. "Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God."---1.Corinthians 7:19. "For this is the new covenant, I God will put My laws into their mind and into their hearts will I write them."---Hebrews 10:16

Spiritual formation now became popular among Protestants. It is pure Roman Catholic mysticism and spiritualism. The apostle
Paul in 2.Thess.2 wrote of the 'great' falling away or apostasy that would occur before the second Advent by 'lawlessness'. It could mean less law, but since the 1800's when the message of fallen Babylon was first proclaimed, Christians everywhere are talking against the Ten Commandments boldly.
 

 

THE NEW SINFUL EMERGING CHURCH

The New Emerging Church led out by Rick Warren and Bill Hybel hired at their convention a Rock Band and a Comedian for entertainment to mock fundamentalist Christians by saying that they are long faced, have no fun and are over saved.

The new sinful emerging church is promoting worldly entertainment and a kingdom of deception. Would the real Gospel and the real Saviour from sin please stand up! The homosexual Bishop Reverend Sponge is also part of the new sinful emerging church. No wonder they want to love everybody and not be judgmental. The bottom line is that they are in love with sin. Sinful lust of the flesh is falsely called love.

Those who downgrade sanctification, to them nothing is sacred or holy anymore. The lack of sanctification cancels out any saving effects of justification! Jesus demands whole heartedness. Ephesians 2:10 says that we are being saved for the very purpose of doing good works and therefore Christians will be judged [1.Peter 4:17]. They are making the mistake of looking at the mountain of sin or not at sin at all, instead of looking to the most powerful Saviour from sin, Jesus Christ [Matthew 1:21].

By beholding Him, we become changed into His image and leave the image of the beast behind us. These are days of great spiritual deception and apostasy, and central to that apostasy is the Charismatic movement. Its visions are false; its doctrine is corrupt; its practice is confusion and disorder. It is one of the most powerful elements of the ecumenical movement. It brings together Roman Catholics, Protestants, Baptists, Pentecostals, and Emergents in an unholy union of truth and error.  Fundamental Bible-believing churches that use charismatic contemporary praise music will find that this music brings with it a philosophy that will soon change the character of any fundamentalist church. It is a different spirit.

What is the will of God? The will of God is your sanctification.---1.Thess.4:3  http://www.come2jesus.com.au/sanctification.htm  What is the duty of all mankind? Answer: The complete duty of mankind is to keep God's commandments. Eccl.12:13,14 James 2:10-12.

 So why does Adventism insist on promoting the fall of Babylon [modern Christianity]? A true Christian is to be crucified with Christ. Crucifixion of self is a very painful procedure, but with the help of God's Holy Spirit, this burden is light compared to the burden of sin and selfishness.
Selflessness and self sacrifice is the language of heaven. Cross bearing is what we Christians are called to do. When the Protestant churches had the spirit of Christ, they shun self-indulgence. No pleasure seeking, no dancing, gambling, card playing, no drinking, no partying, no smoking and no drugs etc.
But once they started to allow all, then gradually the churches began to lose members because the church and the world previously at odds, is now united and not distinguishable. They became one and had to start uniting to make up for lost membership. Then came television so now the lovers of pleasure became more than the lovers of godliness. Godliness is God likeness [not sameness]. Self-control or discipline is a fruit of the Holy Spirit [Gal.5:22].
                Cross bearing applies to all we do, wear, eat or drink. Selfless self sacrificing love brings joy. The language of Satan is sin, selfishness, the pride of life, pride of opinion, self importance, rebellion, disobedience, disrespect, hatred, self sufficiency, distrust and no need of help from above. The true Christian is dead to sin and alive in Christ [Romans 6:4]. One Lord, one faith and one baptism [Eph.4:5]. The Christian churches also started to lose members because they have no health message and people find it in Eastern cults. This is a possible reason that the Adventist church is the fastest growing church.



The Day Of Atonement [AT-ONE-MENT].
What do Seventh-day Adventists teach and believe about the atonement? The very same as the Bible does. The reason why others do not see it, is because they do not study daily as we do. The question is raised, was grace for forgiven sins given with each sacrifice? The answer is yes. Seventh-day Adventists believe that our Lord Jesus Christ made complete and perfect atonement for our sins on the cross of Calvary. So why are we at odds with all others? Their Theologians have studied and seen our truth in the old testament, but are afraid to lose their jobs and salary should they admit that the Seventh-day Adventist church is right and the Investigative judgment is taught in the Bible even though it does not use the very term. The trinity is in the Bible, but not by that name. The Millennium is there but not by that term. So why object to the Investigative judgment? I would prefer to call it the pre-advent judgment. The Bible teaches a final atonement by Jesus Christ in the heavenly sanctuary! In the Old Testament type of shadows, the sins were transferred from the bleeding lamb into the sanctuary temple and dealt with at the end of the sacrificial year or round of ceremonies. Not until then was all sin eradicated. It was called the blotting out of sin.


Why was there a need for the yearly "Day of Atonement" if complete at-one-ment was achieved at the sacrifice in the old testament sanctuary? We did not invent this, God did. Christians are going so far today in denying the judgment all together, saying, there is no judgment for the Christians. God knows who is going to be saved. Has God ever done something so important without giving evidence?
"And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that Thou should give reward unto Thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament."---Revelation 11:18,19. The ark of God's testament carries God's mercy seat and therefore must be His throne, and under the mercy seat are the Ten Commandments which according to James 2:10-12 will judge us. Notice that it is the dead and not the living standing before God  on judgment day. Therefore it cannot be the executive judgment. Since it is before the seven last plagues while the good news of salvation is still being preached according to Revelation 14:6,7.
All Christians will face their life's record. The apostle says that Christians will hardly be saved and that the Sinners will have no where to appear [1.Peter 4:17] because they stand self condemned. " Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it."---Matthew 7:14

"A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him; thousands thousand ministered unto Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened."---Daniel 7:10 [The word Daniel means 'God is judge'].
 Note that the last church is called Laodecea which means judging the people. The books of record in heaven, in which the names and the deeds of men are registered, are to determine the decisions of the judgment. The Revelator, describing the same scene, adds: "Another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works."---Revelation 20:12.
The Bible says that we are a spectacle to the universe, i.e. they are looking to see how sin is affecting our lives. God could not explain sin to a sinless universe unless it was illustrated. The universe is eagerly awaiting the outcome of a fair investigation into our lives. God is very open about the judgment and does nothing silently in a corner.
The book of life contains the names of all who have ever entered the Service of God. There, every temptation resisted, every evil overcome, every word of tender pity expressed, is faithfully chronicled. Every act of sacrifice, every suffering and sorrow endured for Christ's sake, is recorded. Wrote David: "Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into Thy bottle: are they not in Thy book?"---Psalms 56:8 "For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil."--- Eccl.12:14  The secret motives and purposes are important for all to know so we can clearly see why certain persons did not make it to heaven and surprised when we see some there that we thought shouldn't be. Every wrong word, every selfish act, every unfulfilled duty, every secret sin, heaven's warning or reproof neglected, wasted time, unimproved opportunities, influence exerted for good or evil, all are taken by the recording angels. The holy law of God is the standard by which all characters will be judged: "Fear God and keep His commandments: for this is the duty of all man. For God shall bring every work into judgment."---Eccl.12:13,14.  "So speak ye, and so do,as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty."---James 2:12.

"For when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life."---Romans 5:10
Here it clearly says that we are saved much more by the life of Jesus than by His death. His perfect law keeping is written to our credit and His divine intercession in the heavenly sanctuary now saves us. Our critics will jump sky high over this statement and want to deregister us as a Christian church. "Wherefore in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people."---Hebrews 2:17
Clearly then, the reconciliation for sins is made in heaven now to atone and not at the cross alone! The Adventists therefore stand alone in saying that the atonement on the cross was perfect and complete, but not finished. It only began.

Judgment after 31 A.D.
The apostle Paul preached of a judgment to come after Christ's death.--Acts 24:25;17:31. Romans 2:16. "Why doest thou judge thy brother? Or why dost thou set at naught thy brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then everyone of us shall give account of himself to God."--Romans 14:10-12. "The Lord shall judge His people."--Hebrews 10:30. The heresy that has undermined Adventism places the judgment at the cross, which is partly true because it is for the unsaved. The whole world stands condemned for the death of Jesus.

The Jewish Encyclopaedia has this to say about the day of Atonement!
"
God, seated on His throne to judge the world, at the same time Judge, Pleader, Expert, and Witness, opens the books of records; it is read, every man's signature being found therein. The great trumpet is sounded; a still small voice is heard; angels shudder, saying, this is the day of judgment: for His ministers are not pure before God. As a Shepherd mustereth his flock, causing them to pass under the rod, so does God cause every living soul to pass before Him to fix the limit of every creature's life and to foreordain its destiny...... On the Day of Atonement it is sealed who shall live and who are to die. "

You notice that the word day has a capital. In Hebrews 10:25 it says "Do not forsake the assembling of ourselves together...... and so much the more as ye see the day approaching." That day is in capital except by the KJV. It is the Yoma, the Day, the day of atonement.

Ex-Adventists
Ex-Adventists have accepted a false gospel and false hope. They speak of a free gift of salvation while at the same time denying a powerful living Saviour from sin. When their probation closes, they will still have unconfessed and unforsaken sin that will exclude them from heaven. They are hoping to be saved in their sins. To them are the words of Jesus spoken on judgment day: "Depart from Me you workers of iniquity." --Luke 13:27;Psalms 6:8.
Ex-Adventists do not have the facts right, are shaken out of the church, and keep on spewing out their poison continuously. No one is able to reason with them, not even God.

Original Adventism

Original Adventists believe in the incarnation of the Son of God. The word incarnation contains the word carnal. In Romans it says: "Because the carnal mind is enmity with God: for it is not subject[ed] to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God."---Romans 8:7,8.
So Jesus came with the carnal nature that we have, but was born by the Holy Spirit did not sin. He could have fallen. Because Jesus never gave in to sin, therefore He was free of the passion of sin and never experienced them. As original Protestantism always believed, Jesus on earth was fully God, and fully man. Therefore He is our example in overcoming self, sin, and the world. Temptation is not sin, only if we give in and starting to love it.


Why do Seventh-day Adventist believe that Revelation speaks of Sunday law?
Simply because the national law for Sunday observance is already on the books of the so called Blue Laws in the USA lying idle and dormant. Europe is the home of the Papacy and the originator of the Sunday law having just formed the Sunday Alliance with secular powers such as trade unions and the European parliament. The Papacy has been working very closely with the USA in recent years behind closed doors to bring down communism and presently working together to subdue Islam. The very next move will be enforcing the boycott of Revelation 13.
Adventists have always maintained that the international Sunday law must start with the USA. The President of America is well on his way to become a dictator. The fallen churches of Christendom [or fallen Babylon] will soon call for legislation to bring people back to the churches because of the sharp increase of natural disasters when the real reason is their apostasy and worldliness having so much in common with the secular authorities. By their fruit we shall know them. Friendship with the world is enmity with God. [James 4:4]
In 1888 A.D. Adventist historian A. T. Jones singly defeated the Sunday law bill in the USA on the grounds that secular powers can only legislate on the last 6 of the Ten Commandments and not on the first 4. This gave Adventists another 120 or more years of freedom and opportunity to preach the three angels messages. It is seen that Adventists follow Christ and that makes them Christians. Jesus never went to church on Sunday, so we cannot follow Him there.

 

The true LORD'S day!
JESUS CHRIST is the Lord of the Seventh-day Sabbath [Saturday] Revelation 1:10; Mark 2:28. The Jewish Sabbath was nailed to the cross, but the weekly Sabbath day is part of the 10 Commandments [not suggestions or options], and will be forever into eternity. How do we know? Well, in Isaiah 66:22,23 GOD Himself says so: "The new Heaven and the New Earth I will create all flesh shall come and worship before Me, from one Sabbath day to another." So there is an unbroken Sabbath from Eden to Eden restored [Genesis 2:1-3]. The law is no good on cold stone, only when in the fleshly heart of us [Hebrews 8; 2.Corinthians 3:3]. Romans 14 is all about the day of fasting and not worship!


Seventh-day Adventists firmly believe that JESUS is the High Priest in heaven and when the Bible says that the earthly sanctuary was a shadow or copy of the genuine in heaven, then it is so. There we find all of the 10 Commandments including the Seventh-day Sabbath under the throne, the mercy seat of GOD.  We also have a real priest in heaven, JESUS CHRIST. It even gives us the time period in which that heavenly temple would be trodden under foot Daniel 8:13 and Revelation 11:2 and gave the world a faulty view of salvation.

"Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?"---Daniel 8:13

There is no doubt in the mind of the serious Bible student that this symbolic 42 months are the 1260 literal years of papal supremacy when they instituted a counterfeit priesthood by the man of sin seated in God's temple claiming to be god [2.Thess.2] by calling himself "Holy Father" and claiming infallibility. This is the transgression of desolation! In 538 A.D. Rome was freed and the papal reign started then and finished in 1798 with the deadly wound by Napoleon, exactly 1260 years when prophetic time was fulfilled.

In fact, the papal see put itself above God when he claimed power to change His holy moral law of the 10 Commandments.

The 2300 symbolic days in Daniel 8:14 [like the 70 weeks or 490 literal days] reached to 1844 AD when JESUS cleansed [KJV] the heavenly temple according to prophecy. After 1844, the temple was cleansed from being trodden under foot by papists and Protestants alike. [Protestantism did not come clean out of Rome].
Note, only modern Bible translations have steered away from the word cleansed. A new translation has to have at least 25% of new words in order to find copyrights. So we can call them modern perversions rather than translations. Some have 1150 days instead of the original 2300 and use new words that have no meaning in connection with the sanctuary services.

In fact, before 1844 AD, the whole of Christianity was totally ignorant of what the sanctuary was. It can be seen from the fact that the Baptist William Miller thought along with all others, that it constituted this earth and that JESUS was coming early to cleanse it by fire. This suited the fire and brimstone preachers at that time. This has all changed into a more social gospel since. In the 1800's Protestantism stopped the 'protest' and made a complete turn back to Roman Catholicism. While Protestantism started to deny the reformation, the Seventh-day Adventist church remained true and kept going and GOD blessed them by building on it with Daniel and the Revelation.


The starting point for the 2300 days of years are the same as for the 70 weeks of years in Daniel 9:24-27 announcing the Messiah Jesus Christ. William Miller, a Baptist, with the rest of Christianity thought that the "SANCTUARY" was this earth JESUS came to cleanse by fire from sin and Sinners. The end of the 2300 days of years came to 1844 A.D. 

   The little horn power of Daniel chapter seven [Protestant Reformers all believed this to be the papacy] had cast down this truth of GOD'S Sanctuary to the ground: 11."Yea, and he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. 12.And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practiced, and prospered.
13.Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary, and the host to be trodden under foot? 14. And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days, then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."
---Daniel 8:11-14.

There is no event recorded after 2300 literal days that would fit this prophecy. But the Protestant principle of prophetic interpretation of a day for a year [see also Ezekiel 4:6] does perfectly fit the 70 weeks prophecy from Daniel's time to when JESUS was anointed at His baptism, and the duration of the little horn [papacy] of the time and times and the dividing of time [3 1/2] or three and a half years. In Jewish reckoning, 3 1/2 years are 1260 days at 30 days per month. Since the days  are symbolic, they are 1260 literal years. The Papacy reigned from 538 - 1798 A.D., exactly 1260 years.

The Abomination of Desolation
The abomination of desolation is the suppression of Christ's heavenly ministry in the Sanctuary! Our Lord in Matthew 24:15 directed us to Daniel 8:11-14 as a future time and so cut out the possibility of Antiochus Epiphanes being the culprit.
Next we see the abomination mention again in Daniel 9:26,27  ".....and the people of the prince [the prince of evil] that shall come, shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war [ the end of the war between good and evil, and the end of the world seems to indicate that the earthly sanctuary Temple will never be rebuilt].v.26
"And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."---verse 27.
Note, 62 weeks [or 434 years] after the city was rebuilt, the Messiah, Jesus Christ, would come. Then one week [or 7 years] will be left to your people, the prophecy said. After 3 1/2 years, the Messiah would be cut off [crucified]. 3 1/2 years later, the probation of the Jewish nation ended. After the crucifixion, the Gospel was preached to the Jews for another 3 1/2 years until the stoning of Stephen the Gospel went to the Gentiles. With the crucifixion of Jesus all sacrifices and oblation ended, but the abomination of desolating Him from His heavenly work continued.


Seventh Day Adventists today stand alone with the year day principles inherited from Protestantism, since the latter have changed to new cultic interpretations of the secret rapture, dispensationalism and the pentecostal spirit of tongues and even returned to Roman doctrines of the Counter-Reformation such as Pretorism and Futurism. Since the. day of atonement [or at-one-ment] took place one day a year, 2300 days are automatically 2300 years even though it was preceded by 10 days of fasting and prayer.

What do Seventh -day Adventists believe about the judgment? Just as the Bible teaches it. The apostle taught: "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?"  Notice that the sinner has judged himself unworthy of eternal life and needs no judgment. It is only for those who had all the opportunity and did not learn nor obey. Also, please notice that the Old Testament believers are judged the very same way by the same Ten Commandments: "Hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of mankind. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil."--Ecclesiastes 12:13,14.
And what about the New Testament people?: "For He that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgessor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty." Notice here the transgressor of the law. that is exactly what John says sin is:" Whosoever committeth sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law."-1.John 3:4
James only repeated the two commandments Jesus cited in Matthew 5:17-19 of which He said:" Think not that I came to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, not one jot or title shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." And when will that be when all be fulfilled? Not until sin is comely eradicated from the Universe when sin and sinners shall be no more. What a merciful God we are serving! Sinners will not burn forever, they will be put out of their misery. Someone ask me in Sabbath school class, why did God destroy so many people in the Old Testament? Why do you pull out weeds?
One of our members has come home from Afghanistan where he has seen many things he would like to forget and cannot get out of his mind. One day in Sabbath school he could contain himself no longer and wanted to know why God allows so many evils. He had seen a child with a cut throat and above on the wall a picture of our Lord Jesus. He could never reconcile this with God until someone said, God is saying to you, I take care of this child from now on.

"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."---Daniel 7:25

If Protestantism believed that the little horn is the Papacy, why do they not accept today the insistence of the Seventh Day Adventist Church's claim? Here this verse tells us that this power thought to change the times and laws of the most High when they took out the second commandment and changed the fourth from Saturday to Sunday.

The great and bitter disappointment of 1844 is well described in Revelation 10:9-11 when the angel bade them to eat the little prophetic book of Daniel and the prophecy was so sweet in their mouth when they proclaimed it, but turned sour when Christ did not come as expected. But says the angel, you must prophecy again after this.

"And I went to the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. 10. And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. 11. And he said unto me, Thou must prophecy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."---Revelation 10:9-11.

The "Sanctuary" opened up a new chapter to early Adventists. As they saw that the papacy [the little horn] had obscured Christ's intercessory priesthood in the heavenly sanctuary by a counterfeit priesthood of their own, the application of the above verse in Daniel showed how the truth was cast to the ground and prospered.

Early Adventists also saw how the "protest" had gone out of Protestantism in the early 1800's. The heresy of dispensationalism started to deny the validity of GOD'S holy 10 Commandments and nailing them to the cross along with the ceremonial law of Moses. At that time the Seventh-Day Adventist church started to see themselves identified with the three angels messages of Revelation 14 declaring the moral fall of spiritual Babel [Christianity] because of their rejection of the Three Angel's Messages.

Seventh Day Adventists used to observe Sunday as the Sabbath with the rest of Christianity, until they saw after the great disappointment [Revelation 10] that the heavenly sanctuary is visible on the day of judgment [Revelation 11:1,2,18,19] and we all will be judged by all of the 10 Commandments [Ecclesiastes 12:13,14; James 2:10-12] that the first day Adventist became the Seventh Day Adventist church after 1844 and formed into a denomination in 1863.

From now on, the Seventh Day Adventist Church could identify itself with the leftovers or "Remnants" of the original pure church pictured in Revelation 12:17  "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."---Rev.12:17.

How does the dragon [devil] make war on us? A "Remnant will never be big. It will remain small and since fallen Roman Catholicism and now Protestantism have so far differentiated themselves from us and the Bible, they call us a "CULT" and warn people to stay away from us and our public evangelistic outreach meetings. Myriads are the opposition to CHRIST'S Seventh day Sabbath that they even lie to the people and declare it to be Jewish. They even go as far as opposing JESUS who says that it is not Jewish, but for all men [Mark 2:28].

When someone asks, what do Seventh-day Adventists really believe, we should hand him/her the Bible and say this is what we believe. But most people do not understand the Bible because spiritual things are spiritually discerned, and making everything plain may not be in the best interest of the Holy Spirit of God.

 

       The hope of every Christian is the return or 'advent' of JESUS CHRIST to come and reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, our great GOD [Titus 2:13]. This is called the "ADVENT" and hence ADVENTISTS.
JESUS is also the Lord of the Seventh Day Sabbath [Matthew 12:8] therefore are we SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISTS that sets us apart from the rest. All our beliefs center around our Lord JESUS:

 

1.) Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour from sin [Gospel Revelation 14:6-12] Not in sin, see Matthew 1:21.
2.) Jesus Christ as Great High Priest in His most holy Sanctuary Temple in heaven.
3.) Jesus Christ and His own holy day of worship
4.) Jesus Christ and His advent to come and reign in power and glory to end sin.
5.) Jesus Christ and eschatology, the apocalyptic prophecies about the end-time.

Churches are usually represented by creeds. The Seventh-Day Adventist church has never had one of those until recently. These are called the 27 Fundamentals and can be viewed in a separate window HERE. [ one more has since been added ].
One of the fundamental pillars of the Seventh-day Adventist church that has been left out from the 27 Fundamentals is the Elijah message. What did God promise concerning Elijah? "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord."---Malachi 4:5 What will this prophet do when he comes? "And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers."---verse 6.
Whom did Christ indicate as fulfilling this prophecy? "Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias is already come, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist."---Matthew 17:11-13.
When asked if he were Elijah, what did John say? "And he said, I am not......I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness. Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias."---John 1:21,23.

How did Elijah answer king Ahab's accusation? "And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim."---1.Kings 18:17,18. Now Balim or Baal was a sun god, Ahab's wife Jezebel fed 400 false prophets at her table. But Elijah's accusation is that they had forsaken the commandments of the Lord just as it is today. Sunday from sun worship has been replaced by wicked man and set up as an idol. Sunday is popular with the world and Christ's Sabbath has been made void. Sunday worship brings people closer to the world and transgresses the fourth of the Ten Commandments making Sunday worshipers guilty of transgressing all Ten [James 2:10-12].

So here is the Elijah message as given today by the Seventh-day Adventist church

We are often charged with having a different Gospel. The new testament warns us that if anyone has a new Gospel let him be accursed. Because we do keep all of the 10 Commandments including the Sabbath of CHRIST and the fourth of the Ten, that we are being wrongly accused of being under the law as Paul quotes some were in the church of the Galatians.

Seventh Day Adventists like to be known for preaching the "THREE ANGELS MESSAGES" of Revelation 14:6-12. Here we find the everlasting Gospel announcing the start of the judgment hour of GOD [see verse 6] Seventh Day Adventists identify with the good news and of the judgment and have nothing to fear. "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much."---Luke 16:10

              The Baptist licensed preacher William Miller in the early 1800's had turned from atheism to preaching by studying the old testament prophecies relating to the end - time events also called "Eschatology" and he came across the prophecies of Daniel and the 2300 days found in Daniel 8:14. Miller found that the starting date for the 2300 days is the same as for the 70 weeks of years announcing JESUS CHRIST as the Messiah in Daniel 9:24-27 and so with arrived at 1844 A.D. for the end of the 2300 days of years.
SEE 2300 DAYS [opens in a new window].

With mathematical accuracy William Miller arrived at the time when CHRIST would come, not as he expected to this earth to cleanse the sanctuary temple of GOD, but to cleanse the heavenly temple sanctuary from the sins of those who worship therein [Revelation 11:1,2]. At the end of each ceremonial year, Yom Kippur, the day of judgment  occurred in the old testament temple services as a shadow of better things to come. It was proceeded by 10 days of fasting, deep searching of heart and a thorough confession of sins. Then on that day, the great high priest would take the blood offering for sin into the "Most Holy Place" of the sanctuary temple into the presence of our holy GOD and his ark of the testament containing the Ten Commandments [Revelation 11:18,19; Hebrews 9:7,8]. This is the type of CHRIST entering the Most Holy Place of the temple sanctuary in heaven for the final atonement and judgment reflected in the "Three Angels Messages" of Revelation 14 where it says that the judgment of GOD had begun.

The Three Angels are also quoting the Sabbath from the Ten Commandments [Revelation 14:7;cf. Exodus 20:8-12] the corporate day of worship of the new testament [Matthew 24:20; Mark 2:27,28; Revelation 1:10] which had been changed by the apostasy of the church of Rome which also claims the responsibility for the change to Sunday and into sin.---Thomas Aquinas, Summa theologica,II,q.122,a4 ad 4

Protestant Reformers never reclaimed the proper form of Baptism or the day of worship nor the error of the immortality of the soul from pagan ancestry worship and the Greek philosophy that Rome inherited. For the origin of Sunday sacredness please see another page on this website. But what else do the Three Angels proclaim?

"BABYLON IS FALLEN, IS FALLEN' that great city, because she made all nations drink the wine of the wrath of her fornication." [Rev.14:8]  Ancient Babylon was both a city and a worldwide empire. So was Rome. Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon made or forced every one into idolatry by worshipping the statue of himself which set up on the plain of Dura. The Church of Rome removed the second of the 10 Commandments which forbids idolatry so she could bring into Christianity images and statues otherwise forbidden by GOD and so made or forced all nations doing the same.
Obedience is not legalism, but the children of disobedience give this false accusation to Adventists. "And we are His witnesses of these things: and so is the Holy Ghost, whom God has given to them that obey Him."---Acts 5:32 Notice that obedience comes first, than the Holy Spirit will be given.

Remedy
Here is the remedy for fallen Babylon. "Oh taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him."---Psalms 34:8
How shall we know for ourselves God's goodness and His love? The Psalmist tells us not, hear and know, read and know, or believe and know; but-"Taste and see that the Lord is good." Instead of relying upon the word of others, taste for yourself.
Experience is knowledge derived from experiment. Experimental religion is what is needed now, some, yes, a large number- have a theoretical knowledge of religious truth, but have never felt the renewing power of divine grace upon their own hearts. They believe in the wrath of God, but put forth no earnest efforts to escape it. They believe in heaven, but make no sacrifice to obtain it. They know a remedy for sin, but do not use it. They know the right, but have no relish for it. All their knowledge will but increase their condemnation. They have never tasted and learned by experience that the Lord is good.
To become a disciple of Christ is to deny self and follow Jesus through evil as well as good report. Every darling indulgence that hinders our religious life must be cut off. Will we put forth efforts and make sacrifices proportionate to the worth of the object to be obtained?


GOD had always had His Protestant Reformers who kept the knowledge of true worship available to the people even though sometimes in the most trying circumstances from the early age of the Waldensee's, Huguenots, Albigenses to Luther and William Miller and others.  But by the time the first of these three Angels messages started to sound in 1844, Protestantism had given up the "PROTEST" and started their way back to Rome. Babylon stands for confusion. The moral fall of modern spiritual Babel [speaking in tongues] is not yet complete. Not all have heard the full truth of the matter. But when fallen protestant America will make the national Sunday law in favour of Rome against the Seventh Day Sabbath of CHRIST into law, forbidding to buy and sell unless one has the mark of the beast, only then will the moral fall be complete.

The Mark of the Beast

                  Against this evil, GOD is pronouncing the greatest of all threats He has ever announced against anyone: "If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the lamb."---Revelation 14:9,10.

The beast 666 of course is from the previous chapter, Revelation 13, where the 10 horned multi featured persecuting beast is superseded by a new  second beast [Rev.13:11] that does the same as the first beast in enforcing false worship.
The special characteristic [and therefore the mark] of the beast, and therefore its image, is the breaking of God's commandments. Says the prophet Daniel  "He shall think to change the times and the law." --Daniel 7:25
The apostle Paul styled him as the man of sin [ 2.Thess.2:3,4 ].

The Seventh Day Adventist church has always believed that the second beast is fallen protestant America enforcing the Sunday law of false worship. Because of the claim the Roman Church has made in the past, namely, that the change of the day of worship is the "MARK" of her authority in religious matters. She must say religious, because she is also a political force and that is what makes her and her daughters Prostitutes [see Revelation 17 cf. James 4:4]. Adventism does not teach that anyone has the mark as yet. It is still in the future when it will become an issue. See also www.come2jesus.com.au/markofthebeast666.htm

A lot of Christians are fooled today in thinking that the earliest so called church "Fathers" were the genuine early Christian church. The apostle wrote that: "For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them."--Acts 20:29,30.
Since the word "Father" is a forbidden religious title in the New Testament, these early church fathers are nothing but forunners of the Roman church. The Roman Catholic church is claiming them. Justin Martyr was the first pervert who perverted the simple Lord's supper into the Eucharist and was the friend of the Emperor while the true Christians were fed to the lions. The name Pope is Italian for papa or father. Since that title is forbidden, the apostle Peter could not have been a pope or  church father. The only apostolic succession is the heresy of perverted Christianity. Irenaeus, also from the early centuries, wrote that Mary was the cause of salvation for herself and the whole human race.--see Dogmatic constitution on the church,ch.8,II, 56, pp. 380-381. For more info on the R.C.C. www.come2jesus.com.au/The_Roman_Catholic_Church.htm

Roman Catholic writers try to evade the apostolic succession and origin of the Waldenses  so as to make it appear that the Roman is the only apostolic church, and that all others are late novelties. And for this reason they try to make out that the Waldenses originated with Peter Waldo of the twelfth century. Dr. Peter Allix says: "Some Protestants, on this occasion, have fallen into the snare set for them.........It is absolutely false, that these churches were ever founded by Peter Waldo....it is pure forgery...They were called Waldenses, or Vaudes, from the valley they dwelled in."--Ancient church of piedmont,pp.192,182 Oxford, 1821.
"He was called Valdus or Waldo, because he received his religious notions from the inhabitants of the valleys.---History of the Christian church, William Jonea, Vol II,p.2.

The two beasts
"The beast that was, and is not, and yet is."---Revelation 17:8b
Seventh day Adventists have always linked this verse with the Roman papacy alone, but now we are applying this verse to fallen Protestantism as well. The great Mother Whore is said to have daughters. Protestantism is split into many sects and denominations. Without the "protest" Protestantism exists in name only today. She was, and is not, and yet is! We see them both in Revelation 13 and now Revelation 17. Napoleon took the haughty pope of his throne in 1798, but now is into politics again seen as whoredom in Revelation 17:2 and James 4:4.

The Royal Law of Freedom
Seventh Day Adventists have long pointed out that the 10 Commandments are the royal law of freedom [James 1:25;2:12] belonging to CHRIST our Creator GOD who Himself gave it on MT. Sinai and before that to father Abraham [Genesis 26:5]who also had the Gospel preached to him [Galatians 3:8] and that these ten will judge us at the last day. Eccl. 12:13,14 shows that both Old and New Testament people will be judged by the very same law.

Great enmity is shown us by satanic forces and those used by them against the commandments of GOD [see Revelation 12:17] as by faith we establish [Romans 3:31].

Definition of sin
The apostle Paul had not known sin: "What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid! No, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet."---Romans 7:7. And again: "For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin."  "Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be."---Romans 7:14;8:7.  Christianity has a different definition of sin. Separation from God is certainly the cause of sin, but Satan can easily fix this by giving us a counterfeit spirit. Once fallen Christianity see the real biblical definition of sin, they then can find repentance from sin.

The Throne
What does it mean that Jesus went back to heaven to sit with the Father on His throne? It simply means that Jesus resumed being co-ruler of the Universe. Jesus said that we all would sit with Him on the throne. It does not mean that we would sit day and night together on one huge chair. It is only a symbol. An earthly monarch only sits on the throne on rare festive occasions and is seen travelling most of the time. So Jesus in heaven has two offices or ministries. Hebrews 8:1-5 says so, namely, that Jesus is on the throne and a minister of the sanctuary at the same time.

The great and bitter disappointment of 1844 A.D. is also seen in Revelation 10, which no doubt refers to the little prophetic book of Daniel as can be seen by the start of the next chapter, Revelation 11 which speaks of measuring those who worship by faith in the heavenly sanctuary with JESUS. Measuring is a type of judgment to see whether we measure up to JESUS and His purity and moral law of the Decalogue.

The time of papal supremacy that suppressed the intercessory work of CHRIST as our great high priest above is given as 42 months, 1260 days [Rev.11:2b,3] and time, times, and half a time [Rev.12:14] as referring to the same period. As these are figurative, they refer to 1260 literal years when the church of Rome ruled the fallen Empire from 538-1798 A.D.

Protestant Reformers unitedly called the papacy the Antichrist of the Scriptures as depicted in 2.Thess.2 and the little horn of Daniel 7:25, but today deny those applications since the protest has stopped.

Adventists hold the Bible as their only rule of faith and practice. Luther and others only hold faith alone without the practice. We are also being falsely accused of having the writings of the "Spirit of prophecy" [Revelation 12:17;19:10] in addition to the Scriptures. But which religion does not have extra written material as study helps? Here the Church of Rome has invented a new interpretation of the last days prophetic books of Daniel and the Revelation called "Pretorism" and "Futurism" and sold them to Protestantism in direct opposition and conflict with Adventism.

The Jesuit priests inserted 2000+ years into the complete 70 weeks of Daniel 9:24-27 prophecies of the Messiah allotted to the Jews to finish with sin and transgression. These Anti-Reformation doctrines were originally written to direct all protestant charge of antichrist far away from papal Rome into the far distant past of Antiochus Epiphanies and the far distant future for another antichrist to come at the end of the world. A study of the Seventh Day Adventist Daniel and Revelation seminars shows a marked contrast of prophecy. Instead of pointing to an earthly temple in Jerusalem to be rebuilt for the papacy, we point you to the heavenly temple where the Lord JESUS is our great high priest in the Most Holy place of the ark of the covenant with all 10 of the Ten Commandments intact which will judge us in the last day.

The Gospel of Revelation 14:6-12 is good news, but only to those who are in harmony with the moral law and CHRIST'S Seventh Day Sabbath. It is bad news for Christians who make a high profession of faith with the mouth only but do not follow through with good works as the gift of grace implies [Eph.2:8-10]. Belief is demoted and experience promoted.

Seventh Day Adventists have often been accused of being a cult. This is done in spite and in a derogative way. JESUS said that if they persecute Me, they will also persecute you. JESUS was called  Beelzebub meaning Devil and should His church be called anything else? Satan's enmity is against those who keep all the Commandments of GOD and have the testimony of JESUS [Revelation 12:17] which is the spirit of prophecy [Revelation 19:17] aka eschatology the end time books of Daniel and Revelation well explained.

Christianity's foremost specialists on Cults, the late Dr.s Barnhouse and Walter Martin while compiling a new book called 'The Kingdom of Cults, investigated the Seventh Day Adventist church headquarters and all Adventist literature of past and present and reported that the Adventists have been falsely labeled as a cult and should be accepted into Christianity. For Adventism, this was a smack in the face. Adventists regard themselves as the heir of the Protestant Reformation and in no need of recognition as such, brought rejoicing to the Leadership against the will of the Laity.

Modern Heresies      
                In the 1800's when fallen Christianity renounced all their former beliefs and became cults themselves, condemned by GOD'S three angel's Messengers of Revelation 13 and 14 as fallen Babylon, they invented new unbiblical doctrines such as the "Secret Rapture" which is only a theory, "Dispensationalism", "Speaking in tongues", which should be languages instead of an unmeaning gibberish and mutterings condemned by Isaiah 8:19, and declared all the Ten Commandments nailed to the cross thereby resurrecting the old "Antinomian" heresy.
Next, consider that all the churches of Christianity kept Sunday as their Sabbath day strictly holy. But since the 1800's when the first angel announced their moral fall, they have violated their Sabbath day by commerce and pleasure loving. GOD can no longer accept the old tradition of Sunday keeping in the light of truth now shining on the Sabbath question.


The Seventh Day Adventist church saw itself in Revelation 14 with the end time Gospel emphasizing that the judgment of GOD had come and the message of the Sabbath belongs to CHRIST [see Matthew 12:8 ; Revelation 14:6,7]. This points to 1844 A.D. to the end of the 2300 days of years when JESUS the Lord of the Sabbath would start the judgment with the cleansing/justification of the heavenly temple [Daniel 8:13,14; Rev 11:18,19.] [See also
Calvinism in Adventism] opens in new window

The fall of 'Babylon' started with the Mother church thousands of years ago, and does she not have children? [See Revelation 17]. Babylon stands for confusion. Whenever the love for sin is maintained, confusion results. A new watered down Gospel is now very popular, deceiving the untrained into believing in instant salvation or the once saved always saved which is foreign to the Bible. Modern Babylon is void of true piety, holiness and sanctification. We are not saints, only forgiven sinners, is today's slogan, but GOD's call is to come out of fallen Babylon.

There is something else that God wants people to stop trampling under foot, and that is His holy Sabbath day: "If thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on My holy day."---Isa.58:13

The Latter Rain
Adventists believe that we are now in the time of the latter rain, the Holy Spirit poured out in its fullness to ripen the harvest between good and evil. Adventists are now the fastest growing Christian church according to www.usatoday.com/news/religion/2011-03-18-Adventists_17_ST_N.htm

Stimulants
The only stimulant a Seventh-day Adventist needs is Jesus and His Holy Spirit! They need no cigarettes, alcohol, tea or coffee, meat, coca cola, drugs, uppers and downers.

The New Covenant
Seventh-day Adventists certainly believe in the New Covenant of the New Testament shown here in two versions of the New Covenant N.C and again N.C.

Melchizedek
Who is Melchizedek? Adventists believe that Mel is likened unto the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, who took the form of humanity and represented the Lord Jesus Christ [The King of Peace] to that generation: "Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a high priest continually."--Hebrews 7:3. We find in Hebrews 9:14 that statement, "The Eternal Spirit." That would meet, also, "Without beginning of days, nor end of life."  "Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we aught: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered." [by man].--Romans 8:26.  These statements makes the Holy Spirit a high priest forever. 



Adventists believe that Jesus is God come in the flesh. He lowered and debased Himself despite being the Creator of the Universe [Colossians 1:16,17]. Satan is the prince of evil. Jesus is Messiah the prince. Isaiah called Him the Mighty God as well as the Prince of peace [Isa. 9:6] Jesus according to Isa 9:6 used to be our everlasting Father and since unto us a child was born, became a Son. When opponents to Adventism do not understand the selflessness of our great Saviour, they do not understand why Jesus is also called Michael the Prince and Michael the Arch-Angel. Arch is Greek for chief or head of. It does not mean that our Lord is an angel, but the commander of them. [Jude 1:9; 1.Thess. 4:16; Daniel 12:1]. Our opponents always have a field day over this! See our page on WHO IS JESUS.

The state of the Dead!
When a person dies, will that person go straight to the reward either to hell or heaven? Lets take the apostle as an example: "For I am hard pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better."---Philippians 1:23.
Paul does not say in this text that he will go to be with Christ when he dies. He undoubtedly was using the word 'depart' in reference to his death. But the Bible clearly reveals that Paul did not believe his 'departure' would mean immediate entrance into heaven. Here's the proof: "The time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight. I finished the race. I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me on that day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing."--2. Timothy 4:6-8
Since Paul obviously did not expect to get his eternal crown at his departure in death, when was it that he anticipated actually being with Christ? "For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven...and thus shall we always be with the Lord."---1. Thessalonians 4:16,17.  There it is. Paul's desire to depart and be with Christ involve the resurrection that would take place at the end of the world. Since the unconscious sleep of death is like a moment, Paul speaks of death and the advent of Christ as almost simultaneous. And so it will seem to those who depart and awake from death to see Jesus coming.---Joe Crew.
Life after death is certainly a doctrine from Babylon. All eastern religions teach it, but the Bible does not. Only God has immortality.

Pentecost, the early and latter rain
Joel's prophecy of 2:28 found its partial fulfillment on the day of Pentecost with the opening of the gospel work. It will reach its full accomplishment in the closing work of the gospel. But before God will pour out His Holy Spirit in full power, Satan brought in a counterfeit known today as Pentecostalism. This muttering spirit is condemned by the Bible as seen in Isaiah 8:19. This unmeaning gibberish is not speaking in tongues as seen in Act chapter two.
The real Holy Spirit which descended on the day of Pentecost carried the minds of the disciples from the earthly sanctuary to the heavenly, where Jesus had entered by His own blood, to shed upon His disciples the benefits of His atonement. So in the closing work, His last days disciples will also look up to Christ in the heavenly sanctuary for the unleashing of His power. Satan who is transformed as an angel of light spreads his influence over the earth by means of false reformation. The churches are elated, and consider that God is working marvelously for them, when it is the work of another spirit. The excitement will die away and leave the world and the church in a worse condition than before. Satan knows this; and before the loud cry of the of the third angel of Revelation 14 is given, he raises an excitement in these religious bodies, that those who have rejected the truth of the three angel's may think that God is with them.


When will our Lord return? Seventh-day Adventists have never ever set a date for the return or advent of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our forunners did, the First-day Adventists. We will set no dates, but Jesus coming is very near. The signs are all fulfilling fast. When fallen Protestant America 'enforces' the papal false Sabbath, it will be followed by a national ruin of the USA. The Finalantichrist


150 years of Adventism
Critics are saying that we have nothing to celebrate about in 2013 for the anniversary because Jesus has not returned. God does not want anyone to perish and is allowing extra time. The tarrying time. In the parable of the 10 virgins, it is seen that all ten fell asleep because the Bridegroom Jesus was delaying His coming!

The Remnant church today!
What is a remnant? A leftover! What are the earmarks? "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."   "And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."---Revelation 12:17;19:10

"Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of water."---Revelation 14:7

"Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah."---Isaiah 1:9

"Esaias also cried concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved. For He will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodom, and been made like unto Gomorrah."---Romans 9:27-29.
A Remnant is a small leftover of the original. The original kept all the commandments of God including the Sabbath of the fourth. Sunday keepers will say that is because they were Jews. Unless Sunday keepers become part of spiritual Israel as the apostle Paul says, they cannot become members of the New Covenant where God writes love for His commandments into our hearts and minds [Hebrews 8].
The Remnant Church pictured in Revelation 12:17 and explained in Revelation 19:10 can only refer to the Seventh-day Adventist church and no other because she keeps all the Ten Commandments and has the "Spirit of prophecy." At first I was skeptical like anyone else before becoming an SDA, but after reading her book "The Great Controversy" I was absolutely convinced that she is a true prophet. If so many people hate her she must have been doing something right because the biblical prophets were all hated as much as she is and was. Adventism should have the sole copyrights on the prophecies of the Bible and especially the last book of the Bible. Others failed to explain it to me. Daniel and the Revelation are therefore the earmarks of Adventism.

 
It is finished.
Jesus said this once when on the cruel cross He obtained salvation for us and He will say it once more when probation closes and His work is finished in the heavenly Sanctuary Tabernacle [Rev.21:6] and after this, the seven last plagues will come.

Do Seventh-day Adventists make Satan their Saviour as Baptist writers claim?
This must be the nastiest and most false accusation of all time. The misunderstanding comes from the lack of understanding of the sanctuary services on the part of Baptists and others. They claim that Jesus is the scapegoat for sinners [Seventh Day Adventism Weighed And Found Wanting,p.15]. The Baptists [we love them], their own publication, Halley's Bible Handbook 1962 ed., has this to say on the scapegoat: "Scapegoat" is translated "Azazel", which is thought to have been a name for Satan.p.136,last par.
The Scapegoat is someone who is blamed for the faults of others.--Compact Dictionary. This can hardly be our Lord. On the day of Atonement two goats were used and lots cast. One became the Lord's goat and was sacrificed, but the other, the scapegoat was not killed and therefore cannot atone for sin because without the shedding of blood is no remission.--Hebrews 9:22.
Azazel, the scapegoat, was sent into the wilderness and must represent Satan when he is confined for one thousand years with no one to tempt to this empty earth that will look like the wilderness.

Here is my personal testimony how God led me into all the truth: www.RolfVaessen.com [opens in a new window]

My dear Mother urged me to come back to the oldest church of Christendom. I told her that Rome is not the oldest. Even though the Seventh-Day Adventist Church was founded only in 1863 A.D., she is the "REMNANT" according to Revelation 12:17 and 14:6-12. A Remnant is a leftover of the original who kept all of GOD'S ten moral Commandments including the true Saturday Sabbath or the true Lord's day according to the Bible. The original Christianity is Christ and the apostles which were all Sabbath keepers. Going back further, Adam and Eve were given the Seventh-day Sabbath even before they sinned. When they fell into sin, they began looking for the 'Advent' of CHRIST their saviour from sin and so were the very first Seventh-day Adventist Christians. Rome does not qualify on account of that she removed the second out of the Ten Commandments which forbids the making and adoring of statutes and images so she could start idolatry. Mum died without knowing and accepting CHRIST.

  Some of the co-founders of the Seventh-day Adventist church were Sea Captain Joseph Bates, W. W. Prescott, Educator and administrator. A. G. Daniells, Minister and co-author, James White, editor, Ellen G. Harmon [Methodist] who became Mrs. Ellen G. White. William Miller [Baptist].
R.L. Crosier. Rachel Oakes [Seventh-day Baptist]. D. M. Canright [defector, [see separate page].

Seventh-day Adventists are not members of the WCC [the World Council of Churches] but have observer status only:  http://www.oikoumene.org/en/church-families/seventh-day-adventist-church so do not let offshoots and Adventist anti-Trinitarians tell you otherwise.
