The Dreadful Ignoritis

NOTE: As a reminder we always color code our writings as follows :ORANGE is the Lord speaking, BLUE is Scripture/Spirit of Prophecy, BROWN is the Elijah message as brought by brother Victor Houteff.

 

In this week’s post we’d like to go into what we term “Ignoritis”. This disease is subtle and often those who have it don’t even know it. They blissfully look up to God as the picture shows yet often have their ears plugged (or eyes closed as the case may be). The Lord has placed this issue upon our heart to hopefully awake some of those who unfortunately have this malady.

The Lord says–
“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” (Matt. 7:12)

How simple yet profound are these words! This great principle should be the guiding principle in our Christian walk. In other words in the case of those with Ignoritis, if you want to be ignored when you reach out to your brothers and sisters in Christ (as you surely have)–then ignore the brethren. Of course the Ignoritis folk would not admit that they do this therefore a certain blindness is at work.

We have posted before on this topic yet time and again it rears its ugly head and the Spirit guides us to remind all that the idea that we are “servants” and not to be the served ones, is a Christian rule we cannot break with immunity. The Pharisees in Christ’s day were guilty of ignoring the humble masses and looked at themselves as superior or above the need to “serve” the people as Christ would have them.

They were also of the opinion that they were holier or above the people, and God said this was “smoke in His nostrils”.

“Who say, ‘Keep to yourself, do not come near me, For I am holier than you!’ These are smoke in My nostrils, A fire that burns all the day.” (Isaiah 65:5)

Along with the above reference we can read this as well–
“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.” (Eph. 6:7-8)

The idea that we are servants not only to the Lord but to one another is again brought forth from our King–
“..whoever desires to become great among you will be your servant, and whoever desires to become first among you will be slave of all.(Mark 10:43-44)

None of us who are serious Christians would deny that we would want to be called “great” by Jesus, would we? Yet the turf that comes with this is the mentality of being subservient to others, especially in the faith. The least of those who reach out to us should be the top priority.

I am reminded of a successful businessman who once said , ” To be successful you will have to deal with people you don’t click with or even dis like.”  This is also true in our “business” of saving souls. Sometimes there may be a brother or sister who you know or have heard that they are “too talkative”, “too pushy” or “too whatever” yet it is those who can possibly be helped instead of ignored.

For example, I met sister V, about a year ago, She got my number from a mutual brother. She called and we discussed many topics. As we talked I was a little taken aback because she just would not stop talking. But the Spirit told me to bear with her. Fast forward to today, she is one of my closest sisters in the faith. Her insight and ability to grasp the Lord’s Truth is quite a pleasure to behold.

Let us give some recent examples of those with Ignoritis.

Sister V attempted to call one of the leading “present truth” organizations in trying to receive some material. Both times she was promised someone would get back to her and no one did. This is uncalled for. As representatives of the Lord’s Elijah message, we of all people must set the example. Again the Word counsels us–

“As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” (Gal.6:10)

So we ask, is it “doing good” to ignore a believer who is reaching out? Absolutely not. This is Satan’s trick, “You are too busy, don’t waste your time on this sister.”

Another example was a recent one that I was involved in. The Lord led me to put together a report on the 144,000. I complied a study to be given via phone conference. It was made specifically for my local SDA church. We passed out approximately 10 cards with the phone conference time and other info. Almost all of the church members said it sounded good and would try to attend. At the designated hour–NO ONE SHOWED.

We can understand that people’s schedules change or something happens that they cannot attend. However, what we cannot agree with is the discourteous ignorance in not letting us know what happened or even any update. Ignoritis in mass.  This all shows that SOP was entirely right–

“Men and women are in the last hours of probation, and yet are careless and stupid,..” (Testimonies, vol.2, p.337)

The time is about up and our church is full and satisfied, “rich and increased with goods”(Rev. 3:17) with no need to study to attain His final instruction message to us, a message that gets us sealed in the forehead to stand in the great and dreadful day (Mal. 4:5).

To be clear, we are not saying that all of us in the faith must respond back at all times. For example we had a series of email studies with a brother a while back and after a while it became evident that his questions were not to learn or share but rather to try to disprove anything  he disagreed with. Finally after our warning and his continued emails of more of the same, we had to quit responding.

The Scriptures expound more about righteous shunning–

“But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one do not eat.”(1 Cor. 5:11)

“Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them.” (Titus 3:10)

So yes we need discernment and in some cases our ignoring is justified. But the vast majority are not guilty of the above and deserve our undivided attention when applicable.

In closing, let us remember that we are called to “do good” especially to those of the household of faith. If any brother and sister reaches out to us, let us think as we are counselled–

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” (Phil 2:3-4)

The Woman of Revelation 17 (Part 2 of 2)

October 21, 2016

 Who Is the Woman Riding On the Beast?      

The reason John was shown the vision, is made clear by the words of the angel: “Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters.”  The angel’s interpretation of the “waters” is given in Rev. 17:15: “Peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.”  The woman sitting on them denotes that the inhabitants (waters) had fallen into her trap of deception (sitting on them).

   “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.” (Rev. 17:4.)  The woman is a symbol of a counterfeit religious system.  From her cup she hands out false doctrines.  Being golden, it has an appearance of splendor — inviting.  Her costly garments of loud colors and precious ornaments vividly portray the magnificence of this most vile woman and her kingly pomp, and vain glory. 

By the power of her attraction, so irresistible to the human eye, she has conquered men of the strongest intellect — “With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication.”  Millions with strong mental faculties, men who appear as giants among the inhabitants of the earth, have fallen helpless victims in her trap.  The kings of the earth are guilty of spiritual adultery with the “woman” (drunk with false doctrines), thereby becoming entangled in her seductive snares.

   Any so called Christian organization handing out false doctrines under an appearance of virtue, evidently is governed by the power of the “woman.”  The origin of all such fallacious teachings can be traced back into the golden cup.  Said the angel: “The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”  It has been previously explained that the heads are symbols of so-called Christians denominations, and as she sits on them all, it denotes a union of churches under one head — “the woman.”  The Biblical number “seven” apprehends all such organizations.

Let us break away from this report and go back to this same SRod report on page  117 to see what was said about the “heads”–

Rev. 17:9, “And here is the mind which hath wisdom.  The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”  All the heads being present on the beast, and the woman sitting on them, proves that all seven “mountains” must be in existence at the same time.  They cannot be consecutive for the woman sits on them all, which denotes one great union of the heads by the medium of the woman.  They are called “mountains,” as God’s denomination is called “mountain,” in Isaiah 2:2, and Micah 4:1.  The “mountain” (singular) is God’s denomination, but the “mountains” (plural by both Isaiah and Micah) have reference to the same denominations represented by the heads on the beast.  Thus “the seven heads are seven mountains.”(page 117)

   If all the churches at this present time were led by the Holy Spirit, there would be no confusion among the so-called Christian sects.  As it would be impossible for all to be right while no two believe alike, it is warrantable to say that those who are drinking the wine from the “cup of her fornication,” are not few, for Inspiration says: “And the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” (Rev. 17:2, last part.)

   Note that the “woman” sits on the “waters,” also on the “heads,” and on the beast.” (See Rev. 17:1, 3, 9.)  As it would be impossible for one person to sit on all three objects at one time, the prophetic symbols reveal a spiritual fraud in three different periods.  Thus John declares: “I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast.” Not upon the “waters”, nor upon the “heads.”  Before he saw her, the angel said, The woman “sitteth upon many waters.”  It was the angel also who added, “The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.” (See Rev. 17:1, 9.)  Thus, John saw her last exploit only (sit upon the beast).  Consequently, the symbol, sitting on the “waters” is her first act, according to the vision.

   Therefore, her first achievement (“sitting on the waters”), must have been in the past from the time the prophetic symbol is revealed.  Hence, the sitting on the heads becomes her second accomplishment, and the sitting on the Beast is the last; at which time she is judged.

   As the Protestant churches are represented by the heads, she could not have sat on them before the reformation, for they were not as yet in existence.  As the heads upon which the “woman sits” are unharmed, it is evident that the prophetic symbol is to meet its fulfillment some time after the deadly wound of the leopard-like beast of Revelation 13:3, is healed.  The symbol, sitting on the heads, denotes union of churches, for she sits on them.

   Therefore, when Catholicism, Protestantism, and Spiritualism clasp each other’s hand by the medium of a league, then it could be said, “the woman sitteth on the heads.”

   The symbol of the “woman sitting on the beast,” will meet its fulfillment when that religious federation shall make an alliance with the powers of the world.  Such an act would give the woman full control of the entire beast, horns and heads — the world.  At that time the following Scripture will meet its perfect fulfillment: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast.” (Rev. 13:16, 17.)

   Thus the symbol of the “woman” sitting on the “waters,” represents the period before the reformation.  This was true during the period of papal supremacy, for at that time the papacy ruled the Roman world — “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.”  Thus the “woman” sat on the “waters” during the 1260 prophetic years of Daniel 7:25, but she is yet to sit on the “heads,” and on the “beast.”  Had she sat on the non-descript beast instead of on the “waters,” it would have been wrongly symbolized, for, the “woman,” by the tool of Catholicism, did not reign over all the world (beast), but over many “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues” (many waters).  Therefore, the symbol, “sitting upon the scarlet colored beast,” denotes an international religio-political system.
 

                            How Long Has the Woman Been In Existence?

   This question may be answered by the following Scriptures: “And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” (Rev. 17:6.)  This could truly be said of the Roman church, for, she persecuted the Christians and martyred them.  Therefore, she is “drunk” with their blood.  True, the Roman church has had unlawful connection with the “woman”; was, and is drunk with the wine of her fornication.

   The “woman” did not originate with the Roman church, but rather she produced that church.  Therefore, we must trace her existence beyond the beginning of the papacy.  Revelation 18:24, throws light upon the subject: “And in her was found the blood of the prophets, and of the saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”  The holy Word of God declares that the “woman” is guilty of the blood of the martyrs in all ages.  Therefore, the “woman” is drunk with the blood of Abel, and thus the blood of “all” the martyrs is found in her; proving that Cain was her first client by presenting a counterfeit sacrifice (false doctrine), and by slaying his brother.

   There are many so-called Christians, who like Cain, say, “It makes no difference; one thing is as good as another.”  But God accepts no substitute and no man’s religion.  That which human wisdom has devised, is man’s righteousness, and not the righteousness of Christ.  Therefore, it is an abomination in God’s sight.  The human fiber of obedience to divine requirements being weakened, and the sinful inclinations strengthened from generation to generation, the nature of man cannot be better at this Present time than when the disciples asked Jesus: “Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?” 

So-called Christians, like the Pharisees, become offended when told of their errors, and rebuked for their sins.  “But He answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.  Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind.  And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” (Matt. 15:12-14.)

   “And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth.” (Rev. 17:5.)  The woman riding on the beast is the mother.  The seven heads on the beast are the symbols of her daughters (harlots).  Catholicism is her first daughter in this symbol, and as Protestantism sprang from Catholicism, then, apostate Protestantism in the multiplicity of sects, are her daughters also.  Or it may be said, the woman” is the mother of Catholicism, and Catholicism is the mother of Protestantism.  Says the Revelator: “I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy.” (Rev. 17:3.) 

Thus the number of “heads,” and “full of names,” include all the offshoots from Protestantism and Catholicism.  Had there been no mention made of being “full of names,” more than seven, and “scarlet,” which denotes that God’s people have been called out of it, therefore, “scarlet” — skimmed — under curse ready to perish, the Biblical number “seven heads,” would have included those who are carrying God’s message as in the period of the leopard-like beast of Revelation 13:1, at the time his deadly wound was healed. 

Therefore, it would have made no allowance for the church which “keep the commandments of God, and the Faith of Jesus,” and thus it would have contradicted the following Scripture: “And the dragon was wroth with the woman [God’s church], and went to make war with the remnant of her seed [Israel the true — the 144,000], which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Rev. 12:17.)

   God has never had more than one movement in existence at a time and it could not be otherwise now, for Christ cannot be divided.  (See 1 Cor. 1:13.) God’s church is well marked in every generation by obedience to present truth.  The fact itself proves the claim true as there is only one church in the period of the beast which has the “Spirit of Prophecy” and all of the commandments as written by the finger of God. 

Said Jesus: “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt. 5:19.)  It is this divine principle that shall divide the world into two classes — the commandments of God and the traditions of men.  “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.” (Matt. 25:32, 33.)  (Shepherd’s Rod, vol. 2, p.121-125)

Summary 

We noted in our last report, part one that there would be solid Scriptural evidence that the Woman of Rev. 17 could not be representative of the RCC solely. And we have found the evidence. As noted above  God’s word says, ““And in her was found the blood of the prophets, and of the saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.” Since the RCC did not come into existence until approximately the early 5th century there is no way that it can be said that the blood of Abel was found in the RCC church (Woman).This one truth is undeniable and should put to rest the idea that the woman represents the RCC. Hence we have learned that the Woman represents all the false religions down through the ages. 

There are much more revelations to show, such as the true understanding of the Beasts of Rev. 13 and the beast that the woman rides in Rev. 17. We hope to report on these soon. In summary, let us praise the Lord that He did indeed send the Elijah to make known the true understanding of the Revelation and Daniel prophecies– part of the Lord’s promised restoration. This study and the like, should truly gives us an “entirely different religious experience.”

 


The Woman of Revelation 17 (Part 1 of 2)

October 15, 2016

The study of the Revelation is both fascinating and very complex. This book truly must have the Lord’s “Spirit of Truth” to correctly interpret it. In 2 Peter 1:20 we read.

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.” (2 Peter 1:20)

Thankfully our all-seeing Lord sent us an end time prophet, the promised “Elijah” spoken of in Mal. 4:5. He knew that the mysteries of this deep book would have to be unlocked and so it is today. What we will see is the true interpretation of this woman and who/what she is.

There are two SOP quotes that specifically apply concerning our study this week, let us read.

“We have many lessons to learn, and many, many to unlearn. God and heaven alone are infallible. Those who think that they will never have to give up a cherished view, never have occasion to change an opinion, will be disappointed. As long as we hold to our own ideas and opinions with determined persistency, we cannot have the unity for which Christ prayed.” (Testimonies to Ministers, p.30)

“When the books of Daniel and Revelation are better understood, believers will have an entirely different religious experience. They will be given such glimpses of the open gates of heaven that heart and mind will be impressed with the character that all must develop in order to realize the blessedness which is to be the reward of the pure in heart.

The Lord will bless all who will seek humbly and meekly to understand that which is revealed in the Revelation. This book contains so much that is large with immortality and full of glory that all who read and search it earnestly receive the blessing to those “that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein.”

Result of True Study

One thing will certainly be understood from the study of Revelation—that the connection between God and His people is close and decided.” (TM p. 114)

So we see that once we understand the books of Daniel and Revelation we will have “entirely different religious experience.” In other words we will shift into a higher gear spiritually speaking. This truly is what the Lord was talking about when he admonished us as Laodiceans to stop thinking we are “rich and increased with goods”–have all the truth, because Revelation truth (along with other end time prophecies) is needed so that we can “buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich.” (Rev. 3:17-18)

The verses we shall go over in part one are Rev. 17:1-6, 9–

“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration….And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”

Ok let us look at this woman of Rev. 17. Before we do it’s helpful to know what we as SDA have been generally taught about this, our historical understanding.

As with many of our standard SDA teaching, one of the leaders in this department is pastor Doug Batchelor. Recently we watched one of his YouTube videos entitled ,”Revelation 17 and Protestant Reformation.”

In agreement with the typical well-known SDA belief, his presentation proclaimed that this woman is symbolic of the Roman Catholic Church (RCC). A few clues presented were —

  1. The seven heads represent the seven mountains, which is then interpreted to mean the seven hills of Rome. Because Rome has sometimes been referred as “the city of seven hills” DB connects Rev. 17:9’s  mountains to Rome’s hills. In other words he promotes a literal application in regards to what the mountains mean.
  2. The woman has the colors purple and scarlet and is symbolically meant to mean the RCC because these two colors are historically prominent in Catholicism.
  3. The woman has precious adornment of gold and precious stones and shows that this woman is fabulously rich just as the RCC is known to be. DB points out that the RCC has the most silver in the world and owns some of the world’s most priceless relics.
  4. The golden cup is indicative of the priest’s mass cup.
  5. The woman therefore is symbolical of the RCC solely.

As widely distributed and proclaimed by our leaders, this warning of the woman being the RCC is promulgated to have us focus on it exclusively instead of knowing the whole picture and the forecast. All parts of this Revelation puzzle must fit, there can be no dis-jointed piece forced into the picture.

You see brethren, this is Satan’s ploy similar to the “Sunday Law” hoodwink. Having us look for the implementation of this law, while not getting ready for the Lord’s “suddenly” coming to His temple to begin the judgment for the living (Mal. 3:1-5).  Satan has the SDA’s leading teachers right where he want’s them–mis-understanding the prophecies, looking left when they should be looking right. He wants us to focus on the RCC instead of the real culprit–apostate Protestantism.

“..I saw the Mother of Harlots; that the mother was not the daughters, but separate and distinct from them. She has had her day, and it is past, and her daughters, the Protestant sects, were the next to come on the stage and act out the same mind that the mother had when she persecuted the saints. I saw that as the mother has been declining in power, the daughters had been growing, and soon they will exercise the power once exercised by the mother.” (Spalding/Magan Collection, p.1) 

What we’ll be presenting is a  different understanding of this woman provided by the Lord’s Elijah message, another restoration of truth promised by the Word (Matt. 17:11) . Carefully study all aspects of this and then decide whether our historical SDA understanding is correct or whether the following part two presentation is based on  a “more sure word of prophesy.”

What do we find a  “woman” means symbolically in Scripture?

“I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.(Jer. 6:2)

“In Revelation 17 Babylon is represented as a woman—a figure which is used in the Bible as the symbol of a church, a virtuous woman representing a pure church, a vile woman an apostate church.”(GC, p.381)

We see that both Scripture and SOP say that a woman, and particularly the Rev. 17 woman,  represents a church , which is an apostate and impure people  –false religion. Contrarily, for example, we see that Rev. 12’s woman is a pure church, and true religion.

So on this point our historical understanding that the woman is impure and is of a false faith is correct. Being a “whore” she obviously cannot represent purity.

In our part one we see that the historical understanding is that the woman represents the RCC  and that this is based on the afore-mentioned clues (among others). In our part two we’ll bring evidence that this woman cannot be the RCC solely for solid Biblical reasons. Stay tuned, you’ll be blessed and enlightened.

 

 

 

 

Flattery Will Get You Nowhere

October 8, 2016

flattery

We are all aware of the fact that in our human relationships, we can sometimes use flattery as a way of showing our love and affection. We all can remember being flattered and how good it felt, our carnal nature uplifted. But in God’s word we find a very cautious warning concerning the use of flattery.

This week we were guided to read the following Inspiration —

“I lift my voice of warning against praising or flattering the ministers. I have seen the evil, the dreadful evil, of this. Never, never speak a word in praise of ministers to their faces. Exalt God. Ever respect a faithful minister, realize his burdens and lighten them if you can; but do not flatter him, for Satan stands ready at his watchtower to do that kind of work himself.” (Testimonies, vol. 1, p.475)

Take notice of the “Never, never…” part. Rarely in the writings of the Spirit of Prophecy has It been so emphatic as this. This shows the Lord’s prophetess getting down to business and forcefully making an important point. There is no doubt that some of us are guilty of this mis-application of praise and flatter.

I can remember saying on a few occasions , to a pastor or even fellow brother or sister who has made a Bible study report or the like–“Wow, that was great, you really did a good job” or the like. This, as shown from Inspiration is a big-no no.

Now to be clear, there is certainly a time and place for this, for example our spouses. We know that for us husbands, our wives like to told they look nice , are smart, etc. (and vice versa). For a Biblical example of the man-woman praise and flatter read “Song of Solomon.” But this family situation is much different in our relations to those in the faith.

Let us examine this snare of Satan and how we can go about complimenting one another yet staying within the above counsel.

There is not only the clear counsel above, but also a warning to the everyday use of  flatter in our worldly relations–
“A man who flatters his neighbor Is spreading a net for his steps.”(Proverbs 29:5)

“Let me now be partial to no one, nor flatter any man. “For I do not know how to flatter, else my Maker would soon take me away. ” (Job 32:21-22)

“He who rebukes a man will afterward find more favor than he who flatters with the tongue.” (Proverbs 28:23)

But how do we handle this dilemma? How can we be verbally supportive of a brother or sister,  maybe even a pastor or elder?

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some are ; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”(Hebrews 10:25)

The word “exhorting” means to “strongly encourage” and to urge someone to do something. Let’s say you have read a report a brother has made. He has prepared something about Daniel 2, the vision of the stone (144,000) striking the world’s kingdoms. You want to let him know you were blessed by it.

How do we say something “strongly encouraging” yet not flattering? Below are some examples for your consideration.

“Brother, I want to thank you for the report. This Truth, was such a blessing.”

“Praise the Lord! The report opened my eyes to some prophecies I was not aware.”

“These reports are encouraging, may the Lord be praised and the people enlightened.”

Now let’s contrast this to a sinful flattering encouragement.

“Brother your report was great. You are really speaking the truth.”

“Wow, the report you did truly is fantastic and you are truly gifted.”

I am amazed at your written report! I am blessed because of you.”

Notice the stark differences. The top compliments aim to give the credit to the Lord and “His” Truth. Just as SOP counselled–“Exalt God.” The bottom compliments aim to center the praise on the person doing the report not on God.

The Scripture says–

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

The “Truth” is Jesus and belongs to Jesus. We must remember that our work is simply spreading “His” truth. Therefore we should not take any credit for teaching, spreading and communicating His truths.

Someday the Lord will reveal the rewards to the rightful due parties. But now is not our time to collect any praise or flatter. The Lord Himself shall bestow that upon His faithful servants.

“His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” (Matt. 25:23)

 

 

The King of the North (Daniel Prophecy)

October 1, 2016

rothchilds

For the advance student of Scriptures, the “king of the North” is a fascinating subject. In chapter 11 of Daniel, we read much about him.

“He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.” (Daniel 11:41-45) 

Some may wonder, ‘Why is it important to know who the king of the North is?” Because this king is to have control of the “glorious land” God’s land–Israel (Specifically-Palestine). He then is to be brought down and “none shall help him”. An utter defeat witnessed by the world. A compelling story that soon will transpire. Let us look at this important subject this week.

Fortunately we need not wonder who this king is for the last message of Elijah tells us–

“..which power at this particular time, in the time of the end, has added “the glorious land” (Palestine), Egypt , and other countries to his empire. The answer that anyone can give is that Great Britain took these from Turkey and has virtually ruled them ever since. Plainly then, during the time of the end Great Britain is king of the north and Turkey is the king of the south.”(Timely Greetings, vol. 1, no. 4, p.22)

Let us keep in mind that this was written in 1946. This was before GB granted over control to the newly formed state of Israel. But as we search fully GB still has it’s interests deeply stationed there.  But the main point is that we establish who Inspiration says is the king of the north.

Before we go further, and to establish that there is a direct connection with the Rothschilds and Great Britain, we see this striking historical quote–

“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.” Baron Nathan Mayer de Rothschild, 1840-1915

And this fact of the Rothschilds controlling England still exists to this very day.

There is much clues we can gather from the above word of God.

1)First we see that he enters the glorious land.

This is an established historical fact as we note from above. GB had indeed entered the glorious land. Later GB ceded  formal control over the newly formed state of Israel, yet it appears a superficial handover because the Rothschilds were behind both entities. Maria Freeman , editor of the site “Freedom Articles” writes–

“The Rothschilds typically operate behind the scenes. In the case of Israel, the Rothschilds engineered WWI and waited until 1917 when Britain was in trouble. The Rothschilds then promised the British Government that they could get the US to enter WWI (on the side of Britain) and thus ensure Britain’s victory over Germany et al.

However, they wanted something in return: Palestine. Thus the Balfour Declaration was created, which is an official letter from the British Government Foreign Secretary James Balfour to Baron Rothschild. It states that: “His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object.”

There is a big problem with this. Palestine was never Britain’s to give away. It rightfully belongs to the Arab and Palestinian people living there… It is no exaggeration to say that the founding of Israel itself may be the precursor to WWIII.”

Amazingly, this woman, even unbeknownst to herself is speaking prophecy, specifically–

“Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger come upon you.” (Zeph 2:1-2)

In the article on Wikipedia entitled ” British Mandate for Palestine (legal instrument)” it says, “The British defeated Ottoman Turkish forces in 1917 and occupied Ottoman Syria, which would later be divided to British Palestine and TransJordan and French Syria and Lebanon. The land remained under British military administration for the remainder of the war, and beyond.”

However in 1948 GB ceded control over to the newly found “Sate of Israel”, which process the Rothschilds were predominantly involved in. But who really controls Israel still today? You got it–Great Britain (ie. Rothchilds).

2) Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon shall escape from his hand.

It is noteworthy that the land of Jordan , which is where all these ancient countries were located, has escaped the violent overthrows since the GB/USA/Coalition started it’s world political agenda of taking out the countries that don’t fall into line with the new world order and NATO alignment.

3) Egypt shall not escape.

We all know about the great revolution of 2011. President Mubarak was overthrown and a military rule was established. Since that time it is well-known in political circles that the “west” has controlled many aspects of the Egyptian rule.And we are learning who really is in control of the west.

4)  he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt:

Of all the clues , this one seems the most striking. This one clue goes along with the Inspired reference  of GB being the king of the north, and inescapably shows that it is the Rothschilds who really are the specific controlling power of Great Britain. In other words GB is the body and Rothchilds are the brain.

There is simply no other family since the late 1700’s that has built up and established its financial tentacles worldwide with such vastness and hence world-wide power and influence. Some in the higher sphere of financial influence have promoted the longstanding belief that the Federal Reserve is controlled by them  and that our own income taxes are in part rerouted to their holdings. Then we have all the controlling interests in their oil, art, transport industries. When we add it all up, it leads one to conclude that they are the only family dynasty with tentacles reaching nearly the whole world. The two note-worthy exceptions North Korea and Iran.

Yes, this is certainly a very deep subject and many facts cannot be readily found, due to the “one step ahead” long-standing planning and influence of the worlds wealthiest and secretive family. However, let us remember,  the tie in between GB (King of the North) and Israel cannot be denied! Therefore the  tie-in between GB and the Rothchilds cannot be denied. Thus as GB goes so does the Rothschilds. And as the Rothschilds go so does the world’s financial and political movements and governments.

Who today has “power over the treasures of gold and silver”? There can be no other than the Rothchilds. The USA, Russia, China or any other  country or family cannot claim “power over the treasures of gold and silver.” Do the research if you’d like, there’s quite substantial evidence.

For disclosure, some sites proclaim that the USA is holding the most amount of Gold in the world, but this is just a misguided calculation and deception . Scott Alvarez, Federal Reserve General Counsel testified a  statement in a senate hearing on June 1, 2011– “The Federal Reserve does not own any gold.”

The Rothchilds are either directly or indirectly the controlling partner (owner) of the majority of the world’s central banks (again do the research here). The following is from an article by “Profit Confidential” website–

“Central banks first started to increase their gold reserves in 2008 as the financial crisis rolled across the globe, sending the world’s largest economy into a recession. In an effort to protect their nation’s wealth against volatility, central banks started to buy gold.

Initially, central banks were buying gold as a hedge against economic uncertainty in the United States. But now, it’s quite evident that even an economically stronger U.S. cannot prevent the global economy from slipping into a recession.

Central banks continue to hoard gold as the world grapples with any number of issues that could derail the global economy. For starters, that includes ongoing geopolitical tensions between Russia and Ukraine (and the eurozone), growing concerns between Russia and the U.S., and frosty relations between China and Japan… If central banks’ gold buying is indicative of their outlook on the global economy, they are getting increasingly worried. In 2012, gold buying from central banks rose 17% year-over-year to 534.6 tonnes. As the price of gold tumbled in 2013, central banks hoarded an additional 409.4 tonnes. By the end of 2013, central banks held approximately 30,500 tonnes of gold, or around one-fifth of all the gold ever mined.”   

A question also to ask is–“What is meant by ‘over all the precious things of Egypt’? We as Adventists are well aware that the SOP definition of Egypt is– worldliness.

“The church has turned back from following Christ her Leader and is steadily retreating toward Egypt.” (Testimonies, vol. 5, p.217)

Egypt is a symbol of the things of this world. Therefore the king of the North shall logically have his hand into all the “precious things” of the world. This is exactly the case– Precious Art, Jewelry, Finest Wines in the world, Oil and Gas, etc, all are among the Rothschild’s vast holdings.

It’s important to remember that the United States, although technically a free country, still has deep financial ties to GB (via Rothschilds).

Some have advocated that the king of the north is the USA. However, if we are present truth believers we go to the Lord’s final message of Elijah and it says the following–

“The statement, “He shall come to his end and none shall help him,” implies that someone has been helping him, and the world knows that it has been the United States of America.  We therefore, find ourselves living in between verses 44, and 45 of Daniel eleven.”(Timely Greetings, vol. 1 ,no.4, p.23-24)

Here we clearly see that the USA and the “he”(king) are two different entities. The USA is a willing , and infact, the major accomplice helper. However we do note that in earlier Rod quotes it supports the belief that the “last” king will be the USA/666 man. So there appears a future  transfer from the GB/Rothschild empire to the USA.

With the USA now currently in debt of excess of 20 Trillion dollars, there can be no way to declare it as having “power over the treasures of gold and silver..” This money is owed to someone and we can be sure a great share is due the Rothschilds via their financial tentacles worldwide.

5) Plants his tabernacle and comes to his end.

Dan. 11:45 — “And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.”

   The only portion of Daniel 11 yet to be fulfilled is this verse, the last of the chapter, and since these prophecies are made to be understood only when they are being fulfilled or after fulfillment, verse 45 is not as clear as we should like to have it.  Consequently concerning the place of his tabernacles and his end, also as to whether another Christian power shall inherit the title “king of the north” before verse 45 is fulfilled, only time itself will positively portray the whole truth. (Timely Greetings, vol. 2, no.42, p.27)

This part of the prophecy isn’t clear as stated. How he comes to his end or how he plants his tabernacle. Like Inspiration says we’ll have to see when it happens.

Some have claimed that the words, as to whether another Christian power shall inherit the title “king of the north” before verse 45 is fulfilled, only time itself will positively portray the whole truth” would point to USA now because we are viewed as the current leader of the free world and have a kind of protector status of Israel today . But let us remember all that is shown above and most importantly that the USA has not “enter into the glorious land” even to this day. This future entering may happen by the USA though , based on earlier Rod references such as SRod, vol. 2, p.151 (1932).

CurrentlyThe Israel land owner ship consists of three entities –the State of Israel, the (JNF)”Jewish National Fund and the Development Authority. An estimated 93 percent of the country’s total land area (excluding the occupied areas of the West Bank and Gaza) is owned by the state or by quasi-state agencies.(www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org)

Summary–

We have learned that the king of the North is Great Britain. That the true leader behind GB are the Rothschilds. Imagine if you will a giant Octopus. The head and the many tentacles. This king is just like that Octopus, his tentacles are stretched out all over the world. He is Satan’s hench man, his worldly power and influence for killing, slavery, and human lusts and misery.

But soon the great I AM will come onto the scene, just as He did in the time of Moses, unseen yet very active in the midst. The king will then find out he no longer has the power or influence he had been accustomed to–for he has come to his end and none help him. It’s a new game, the world is now witness to God’s power through these strange peculiar people, the 144,000 of Revelation 7 and 14.

Blind are seeing, deaf are hearing, lame are walking again. The Rothschilds “money game” is no longer a prime interest among the masses. Buying stocks, bonds, investing etc. pales in comparison to the mighty miracles of His servants. “Let’s go to church, forget about the ball game” many will say.

“This is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies says: In those days ten men from different nations and languages of the world will clutch at the sleeve of one Jew. And they will say, ‘Please let us walk with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'”(Zech. 8:23)

It will be all about religion, even news and headlines. The Loud Cry has come! God’s is giving the world one last chance at redemption, the “great controversy” has begun, except this time His servants are not phony hypocrites who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. All 144,000 in number obey His voice all the way, they have suffered long enough (dis-fellowship, mocking, slander, accusations, murmured against, Satan’s dark power around them, etc).

“And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve, That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the scepter of the rulers.”(Isaiah 14:3-5)

The Rothschilds and all the powers of the world have enjoyed the riches of the earth  during this mighty hard struggle of God’s elect. Yet the king of the north shall come straight into the prophetic word of God as described below. No wonder “he shall come to his end”!

“Blow a trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, For the day of the LORD is coming; Surely it is near.A great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. 

The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.

They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path:and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:The LORD utters His voice before His army; Surely His camp is very great, For strong is he who carries out His word. The day of the LORD is indeed great and very awesome, And who can endure it? (Joel 2:1-11)

“Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.” (Proverbs 11:4)
