God’s final message to His Church

Note: this post is primarily addressed to the SDA and DSDA members.

The final message has it’s beginnings in our Lord’s last message in His last book of the Old testament. In Malachi 4:5 we read “behold I will send you Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.” Because this is His last warning  message, it is of supreme importance that we – know it, obey it, and spread it.

To begin with, there really is much confusion on this subject within our church. And why not? The Lord’s last message to His church has been known to Satan for centuries, and as such he has worked overtime to block it, confuse it, and just plain trash it as worthless.

As we delve deeper into this message , keep in mind the one startling fact that becomes crystal clear– the evil ones hate it and will stop at nothing to keep it from being presented to the people of God. For awareness and obedience to it by His people, hastens their demise, and they know it!

So we must ask ourselves , as members of His last church, known as Seventh Day Adventists, –have we really studied this last message of Elijah? Do we even know who, where, and what this end time Elijah is all about? If we are truly honest , for most of us the answer is—no. Why is that? Could it be that the Spirit of Truth is lacking among our leaders and they think themselves rich and increased with goods, and in need of nothing? Our Lord specifically warned us in Rev. 3 :17 “ Because you say,’ I am rich, have become wealthy (spiritually), and have need of nothing’-and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked–”.

Our leaders today , for the most part preach the old truths, neglecting the new or present truths. And as we’ll see this final message is the present truth for us today. EGW explains “In every age there is a new development of truth, a message of God to the people of that generation….it is the light which shines in the fresh unfolding of the truth that glorifies the old (truth). He who rejects or neglects the new (truth) does not really possess the old. For him it loses it’s vital force and becomes but a lifeless form.: (COL, p.127-128)

We must now acknowledge that many of the SDA leaders have said that they are rich and have all they need, and need nothing more. This is evident by the continual message of peace and safety, of proclaiming that all is well in God’s house, week after week.  And the steadfast belief that there is no need of any new revelations of truth for our church. Present truth is not necessary, let’s  rehash all the old truths, we got it all we are taught.

Let us look at the truth, as the Lord now asks us to look. First, our beloved prophetess Ellen G. White, whom we love and acknowledge was a servant of the Lord said the following words — “Someone is to come in the spirit and power of Elijah, and when he appears, men may say ‘you are too earnest, you do not interpret the scriptures in the proper way, let me tell you how to teach your message.  There are many who cannot distinguish between the work of God and that of man. I shall tell the truth as God gives it to me, and I say now, if you continue to find fault, to have a spirit of variance, you will never know the truth.” (Testimonies to ministers, p.475-476, 1 Selected Messages, p. 412).

My dear brethren, please follow this closely. The above quote by EGW has at least four clues to who would be the Elijah to come.Let’s look at the four.

The first clue, EGW clearly states that a “he” would come. Do you want to know a clear clue that these leaders of our church are misleading the people in understanding this powerful statement by EGW in identifying the Elijah? Notice they put an asterisk by this statement  basically saying she was talking about herself as the Elijah!  Come let us reason together, EGW was a she not a he. This right here should arouse any truth seeker that something is terribly wrong with the “leaders” to even say this and allowed it there to deceive! So we know that this end time Elijah will be a man.

The second clue is he will come and interpret scripture. This is clue definitely shows his work will be an interpretive work and it stands to reason , much of it would be in written form. All prophets have made their writings known,  to be passed on to God’s people. So they must be published and spread among the people. These interpretations must be well known and been seen because they have a message attached to them (as we shall see).

The third clue is that the man who will interpret scripture and give a message, will be rejected. Men, representing men who can bear a message, no doubt leaders in the church, will rebuke this man and interject their opinions on what he is trying to tell the people. In other words this man and his message will be countered. Keep in mind this whole scenario must be wide open and in front of God’s people, for our Lord would not bring this Elijah unless he was known to His people as an interpreter.

The fourth clue is that she says that “many” would confuse the work of God with that of man. God does not do things haphazardly. Under divine inspiration, the mentioning of the Elijah to come is followed by two clarifications. 1) people would think that the work of Elijah is a man’s work , or his own work and not inspired of God 2) They will find fault and thereby never know the truth as God wanted them to have.

These four clues undeniably point to a certain man in our history of the SDA church, for there can be no other that fits these to a  tee!

Our Lord said the Elijah would come before the great and dreadful day of the Lord, so it stands to reason that Elijah’s interpretations would describe newly revealed Biblical prophecies, that had been hidden, primarily dealing with that great and dreadful day. Because the Lord obviously wants to warn His people . We must ask ourselves, as truth seekers, the following. Who has come from among us since Ellen White has prophesied those words from the Lord? Can you think of somebody? Have we even searched history to see if a man has filled these requirements?

As we mentioned obviously he must be well known, and had made an impact among the people throughout the SDA. He cannot be a relative unknown . The Lord cannot have him as a vaguely know person.Because the Lord wants the people to hear this man, at least of him. Again, he must standout as an interpreter, and he must be rejected by the SDA leaders.

My dear brethren there is only one who has completely fit that description  – Victor T. Houteff. Yes, he interpreted so many scriptures of old and new testament prophecies. His work was quite voluminous. He revealed Hosea, chapter one and two, the Noah flood type and anti-type, Matthew 20, the vineyard laborers parable, Zechariah 4 and 6, Ezekiel 1-2, 9-10, and 47. Also Revelation 1 to 3, 7 and 12, Daniel 8 and more. These prophecies dealt primarily with our Lord’s last day warnings to the church.

As we Davidians are so very well aware , when you actually take the time to sit down and watch or read brother Houteff’s interpretations, you are quite thrilled that our Lord revealed this to us through His servant. I have yet to find error in these interpretations(though I did fine some typo’s, such as the well-know 2300 days shown as 23,000 days in the 11th hour chart below), and believe me I am a truth seeker who want’s no part in error, and with an open-mind  thoroughly listened or read these.

Yes, he was and is still rejected. Today, almost everywhere in the SDA, you will hear the leaders say that brother Houteff did not interpret scripture correctly, and they will interject their reasons, thus saying what God’s real message is.

Strangely though when pressed and shown that most of VTH’s work is based on Scripture and EGW, they are stuck as how to address this. For when they reject much of Houteff’s work they do indeed reject EGW’s as well.

To prove a point, ask a fellow SDA member who denies brother Houteff was the Elijah to come the following  “Ok , after knowing these four clues who could it have been?”  Believe me, just as EGW prophesied they will find some fault in VTH and then likely say –“I don’t know”  –case closed.

EGW makes it clear that if you want to have a tendency to find fault, you’ll have ample opportunity to complete your task in (Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 5, p.675). “Those who desire to doubt, will have plenty of room. God does not propose to remove all occasion for unbelief. He gives evidence which must be carefully investigated with a humble mind and teachable spirit, and all should decide from the weight of evidence. (Vol. 3, p.255, 1873) ” God gives sufficient evidence for the candid mind to believe; but he who turns from the weight of evidence because there are a few things which he cannot make plain to his finite understanding, will be left in the cold, chilling atmosphere and questioning doubts, and will make shipwreck of faith.” (Vol. 4, p.232, 233 (1876)

Some of the writings of  Houteff show some hard to grasp things, some even appear contradictory, yet this is also found in Ellen White’s writings and even Scripture. As EGW said,  do we throw it all out because of the few places that we can’t quite comprehend ? It is the weight of evidence that we must go by and even more importantly, we must have the gift of the Spirit of Truth in us to discern what is truth. As we have said many times before  -once we are converted and turn from our cherished sins, we are promised the Spirit of Truth, the great Truth detector.

You see the whole purpose of the last day Elijah’s message is that of repeating the original “type” message. The original Elijah message was to His own people, not—to–the –world. This is key. When we see Amazing Facts, Hope Channel, 3 ABN, and the host of other SDA outlets telling us that the “world” is who we must go out and preach to, we are denying our Lord’s Elijah message IN FULL! Do these leaders even consider that our own church is in such dire straights that our Lord knew WE are the ones in need of the message, not the world!

As I have pointed out before it’s akin to inviting more people into a sinking boat. The Lord wants the boat patched up, then we can add. Many have a hard time understanding this yet, His purpose clearly is for the Elijah message in these last days to go only to His own people. How dare us second guess our Lord!

Who are obeying this last day Elijah message? It is the Davidian Seventh Day Adventists! They know, believe, and understand this message our Lord wants us to know , obey and spread. The message is that the sealings are now taking place and only those who walk daily in His Commandments, and sigh and cry for the abominations done in His church –will be sealed.None others. Yes, it is  solemn but it’s His word. Who are we to say “I don’t like it Lord, and therefore it’s not going to happen”?

My beloved SDA , please look into the end time message of Elijah. The Lord has sent it for a reason. He is preparing to come down to the earth and walk into His churches to begin the beginning phases of the judgment for the living. In 1844, the beginning of the judgment of the dead began, and we as SDA all know this, but do we know and understand Elijah’s warnings about the very soon beginning phase of  the judgment for the living right in our own churches?

FINAL TIMELINE COUNT DOWN AS PROPHESISED BY BROTHER HOUTEFF

  1. Our Lord writes His warnings to His people in Malachi 4:5 in order to be prepared for His message to come, through His prophet Elijah. This message is His LAST message to His people.
  2. Our Lord , by the Holy Spirit creates His last church, the Seventh Day Adventist church. He brings forth a most wonderful servant named Ellen Harmon, later to be known as Ellen G. White. SDA people are given great light through her on many, many writings, particularly a special message that a prophet is to come after her. It is found in Testimonies to Ministers, P.475, and again in 1 Selected Messages, P.412 However in much blindness, obviously through the adversary himself—Satan, the end time prophet is not discussed openly much,  throughout the church. He is not looked for, as the vast amount of people are taught the old truths rather than present truth, they think themselves rich and increased in goods(spiritually strong), so ignorance is prevalent throughout the denomination.
  3. But this all changes in 1929. A man rises up in the SDA church and begins to teach his local Sabbath school lessons. His teachings attracted some real interest, but also as prophesied , the local leaders, whom had never heard of these interpretations, began to doubt his conclusions. Shortly after a furor hit the church worldwide. Some were excited about the new revelations and some were against. All of this was clearly shown as the identifying sign that the Lord had spoken of through the prior prophetess, Ellen G. White. The man’s name was Victor T. Houteff.
  4. In 1930 He began to publish his work in many written volumes. They covered many, as yet, uncovered prophecies of much old and new testament scripture. Primarily these were shown to be about the upcoming judgment upon God’s church. His name became front and center in the early 30’s within the church( his symbolic code newsletter contains many, many glowing testimonies of the original hearers of the message). Sadly though, the denominations leaders began denounce him publicly as a false leader, saying he did not interpret scripture properly, just as prophesied! Soon the people were divided. Some accepted his interpretations and writings, but sadly a great many followed the leaders like blind sheep and did not believe or investigate for themselves  his work. Soon he was forced to leave the church. Thousands accepted the Elijah message, but the great majority rejected it.
  5. So we now see that  the identifying marks had been fulfilled . He knew his duty was to go to work within his own people, not to work upon the world at large. His work was the anti-type of Elijah’s message. One of warnings that the Lord was about to come secretly to this earth to walk into His churches worldwide (SDA) and begin and execute the beginning phase of the judgment of the living. After this work is done, there will be His elect left within the church, the 144,000, to go out into babylon , to win the great multitude. His interpretations have shown beyond doubt that this is indeed God’s end time plans for His church. Sin , he pointed out,  is so prevalent in God’s churches, that He cannot wait forever to have the people on their own clean up their act—He must take the reins into His own hands. ” The Lord will work in this last work in a manner very much out of the common order of things, and in a way that will be contrary to any human planning..God will use ways and means by which it will be seen that He is taking the reins in His Own Hands. The workers will be surprised by the simple means that he will use to bring about and perfect His work of righteousness. ” ( Test. to Ministers, p.300)
  6. He puts together a clear end time count down based on scripture and EGW.   1) EGW said that John and Ezekiel both saw the sealing acts of Rev 7. (Ezekiel 9) This is  found in Testimonies to Ministers, p.445  2) The release of the four winds represent the Sunday law to begin. The sealings and destroying of the tares within the church must happen before the releasing of the winds (Sunday law). EGW clearly says that the “four winds” represent the Sunday law. (Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 5, P.152).

3) The remaining surviving people after God’s sealings/destroying is the 144,000. They are filled with the Holy Spirit and go out into babylon to win the great multitude. But as this happens trouble comes from Satan to oppose (known as the time of trouble as never was). Even so, a great many around the world come into God’s purified church, as signs and wonders are performed by the 144,000. The devils soon imitate these signs and wonders, and there is great confusion among the world’s people, as to who God is really with. Only those grounded in the word will know clearly (ie. True Commandments including the Sabbath)

SUMMARY

With the explosion of media and online communications, our Lord has opened the avenues for the final Elijah message to come to all the SDA church members, so that there will be no excuse. Facebook, emails, and blogs are very active in promoting this end time message. Soon when the 144,000th one is sealed, the Lord will then take the reins into His own hands, a solemn event. We as truth seekers must seriously ask our selves the following – Are we full and satisfied that we know all the truth that we need to make us spiritually ready to meet the Lord? Or could it be that we haven’t searched the above plain truths, and therefore believe that we don’t need our Lord’s last message? These are solemn serious questions each must ask right now. His last message through His prophet Elijah has specific instructions that we need spiritually to receive His sealing.
