The Davidian Seventh Day Adventists

Have you ever been in a club or organization, maybe even the military, where you were ranked? Your goal was to aspire to be the highest level you could attain. In God’s remnant church, there is a group that has been aspiring to this highest rank (knowing and understanding God’s deepest and brightest light =Truth). Let me introduce you to the Davidians **.

Before we go further, just to be clear, not all those  who call themselves Davidians are  necessarily  right with God, just like any other Christian group. But the true and honest Davidians know they have a most serious and solemn responsibility. Those who DO walk uprightly before the Lord and are Davidians, are those who have seen and understand God’s greatest light, God’s end time light bearers as it were. They take seriously the desire to be among the 144,000. Let us look at who these people are and what they stand for.

The Davidians were started in approx. 1930 by Victor T. Houteff. In the posts “Has Elijah come” under the Elijah heading, we have given some history about him and his purpose. If you haven’t looked into this man’s life and writings, I highly recommend you do. You could describe him as a male version of Ellen White, but different in the respect that his sole purpose was to warn the people that the “great and dreadful day of the Lord” was imminent. His interpretations of many prophecies are fascinating and divinely inspired (to those who take the time to investigate them). Many are convinced he was the “Elijah” to come as prophesised in (Mal.4:5).

Let us look at alittle history about the Davidians from brother Houteff himself. In his publication called Timely Greetings, Vol.2, number 10, pages 16-17, he writes “Fundamentally we are Seventh Day Adventists. Ever since the leading brethren of the Seventh Day Adventist denomination rejected the addition to the Third Angel’s Message (Early Writings, p.277) in the same fashion as the Jews turned down the gospel of Christ, and as the popular churches turned down the messages that followed thereafter, we have fundamentally remained Seventh Day Adventists.

We are seperated from the mother church because the “lukewarm” bretheren by majority vote disfellowshipped us, and put a guard at the church doors to make sure that we could not enter the churches on the Sabbath day.Evidently they did these things in order to force us to renounce the Lord’s revealed Truth, and also to frighten those who were embracing Present Truth and those who might investigate for themselves and accept the message of the hour. There could be no reason for dismissing us.

As we could not turn our backs upon the God-sent “meat in due season” we were, of course compelled to add Davidian to the name Seventh Day Adventist, lest we be accused of misrepresentation.We have never, however,  seperated ourselves from the denomination. As a people we still attend the denominational churches whenever we are not barred from entering.”

So we can see from the above history how the Davidians were brought into existance. Victor, and those who had became aware of the “additional message” as described by the prior prophet, Ellen White, in Early Writings, page 277, embraced the message unlike the scornful fellow members. So this tiny group was forced to huddle together, their own people  had thrown them out. But their message would not die. Today we are witnessing a new revival, as the Davidian message is swelling, even as we write.

But let us CLEARLY understand the situation now. Who do you think knows the scriptures better than anyone else in the universe except the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? You got it–Satan. Can we really think that Satan, knowing about the “Elijah to come”, would sit by idly twiddling his fingers and not be on the look out for this Elijah? He knows scripture, and that when this Elijah comes it will be at the very end of time. He final clock begins, he will be in full panic mode. He must stop the Elijah man and his messengers , and his message at all costs!

He full well knows he really can’t stop God’s plan, but he can try and delay it. If he can put his workers out on this message to disrupt, confuse, or refute then he has won time for a while longer. Let us look at Ellen White in her description of the “popular” ministry that Satan and his workers embrace.

“Ministers take their text from the word of God, but preach smooth things. To this the natural heart feels no objection. It is only the spirit and power of the Truth, and the salvation of Christ, that are hateful to the carnal heart. There is nothing in the popular ministry that STIRS THE WRATH OF SATAN, makes the sinner tremble, or applies to the heart and conscience, the fearful realities of a judgement soon to come (Early Writings, page 273).

Clearly we see that as soon as Truth is preached and especially the warnings of the coming judgement of God, Satan is stirred up. This judgement message has been the heart of the Davidian message!. So we need to understand that the evil one and his workers have set many snares to those who boldly go forward to learn and study the Davidian message. You’ll hear and read many false reports of the Davidians, and the Shepherd’s Rod teachings. Satan cannot and will not be still on this important end time message. It all makes clear sense.

Now let’s look at some important beliefs of the Davidian message.

1) They take literally the words of Ellen White that “we must strive with all the power God has given us, to be among the 144,000.”(Review and Herald, March 9, 1905) The Shepherd’s Rod teachings in this regard superbly blends the Bible and EGW to show a most clear light of how and when God’s elect will come into being, and their purpose. Here is a sermon called “The 144,000, who are they?”

2) They believe that God will establish a Kingdom FIRST here on earth before the 7 last plaques start. This “Kingdom” is not a government rule. It will be a pure “Church” Kingdom. In other words God will FINALLY have his pure Church after the great and dreadful day comes (His beginning day of judgement for the living IN the church). The world’s heathen will get to see His great power (miracles, healings, etc.) through His elect (144,000). They will go out and bring in the great multitude from all over the world. This study is addressed in more detail here.

3) A literal day of judgement for the living to take place here on earth, within His remnant church. The wheat will be separated from the tares. The work of seperation is the work of God’s angels NOT man, just as Jesus said in the parable (Matt. 13:37-43) This will be the prophetic “great and dreadful day of the Lord”. Great for the elect of God, dreadful for the lukewarm and sinners in God’s church. This has and will  be the teachings of the Davidians. The trumpet is to sound the warning. Here you can order 4 free CD’s, one of which is the Ezekiel 9 prophecie.

For a complete Fundamental list of the beliefs, here is the link

We must ever be mindful that if we step up onto the Davidian platform, we are to be of the highest mindset in regards to our representation of Christ. Indeed, our Lord holds us accountable of the great light understood as a Davidian. We must never proclaim the message, and at the same time be a poor example of living justly and rightly before God. Rudeness, ignorance, aloofness, all must step aside, as we are servants .

In closing, let us be  remindful that the endtime message is a simple one. The evil one and his workers try to make the message complicated. That message is– We must know and keep DAILY His Holy 10 Commandments, and we must sigh and cry for the sins in our midst and in the church. If you are a SDA member, I would suggest you seriously look into this end time message, for God had a purpose in sending the “Elijah” to come before He comes, otherwise why even send him? It is God’s end time plan and the Davidians well know this. You should know it also.

In Christ, Rob

**  Davidians are not to be confused with “Branch Davidians” who  are a break away group, started in 1955, after the death of brother Houteff. They teach differently and this author does not endorse them.

  10. Mishel ofosu Says:

    Pls, is there someone to come in the spirit and power of elias or its the whole remnants?

    • godsloveandlaw Says:

      Hello Mishel. Yes, there was one to come in the power and spirit of Elijah, which Ellen White spoke of in Testimonies to Ministers, p.475, and also 1 Selected messages, p. 412. However this “one man” was to start the Elijah message and there are followers to spread it, as in today. I will be sending you two important posts to give you more details.

  11. godsloveandlaw Says:

    Here is first one

  12. godsloveandlaw Says:
