Middle of the Road

The final message of Elijah says —

“The Devil, of course, works both ways — he himself cares not which, but he is careful to accommodate the sinner so as to win him to his side. If one extreme will not do, the Enemy lets him have the other — anything to keep him from the middle of the road, anything to keep him from following the Lord.” (1 TG, no. 6, p.37)

Here we see that fanaticism is to be avoided, for it can lead to being a worker for the enemy. Extreme positions, going overboard on an issue truly shows we can get narrow-minded and lose our real objective–bringing souls to Christ.

Recently on our Facebook ministry, Truth Tellers, we came across such an example of extremes. A brother, we’ll call brother P, has posted continually for the past couple weeks his views on drugs. With the current worldwide focus on Covid19, we believe his objective is good, but he has displayed something worrisome. Allow us to explain.

We are familiar with this brother and in the past we counseled him about his fanatism in regards to posting continually about how we must leave the cities now. While it is true that the message says we are to try and live in the country and out of big cities, there is sound consensus that this is NOT a salvational issue. But according to the brother this was a must.

Our counsel was met with disagreement and he went on doing his posting day after day. But both the SOP and the Lord’s Rod message is clear about fanatism —

“We have found in our experience that if Satan cannot keep souls bound in the ice of indifference, he will try to push them into the fire of fanaticism. When the Spirit of the Lord comes among His people, the enemy seizes his opportunity to work also upon different minds and lead them to mingle their own peculiar traits of character with the work of God. Thus there is always danger that they may allow their own spirit to mingle with the work and that unwise moves may be made. Many carry on a work of their own devising that is not prompted by God.” (Testimonies, vol. 5, p.644)

“Stupidity, fanaticism, and indifference must be abandoned and Divine thinking put in action..”(1 TG, no. 40, p.16)

So fast forward a year or so, now recently this same character of fanatism is being exhibited–this time about the use of drugs, and how they are the greatest evil in the world.

Before we get into the meat of the issue, it would be helpful to go back in time and look at the Pharisees and their behavior. As we know Jesus dealt severely with them due to the fact, among other things they were fanatical. For example their rigid Sabbath requirements.

“At that time Jesus went on the Sabbath day through the corn; and His disciples were an hungered, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat. But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, Thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Sabbath day.”(Luke 12:1-2)

Jesus then pointed out that the disciples were blameless and the Pharisees’ unduly strict requirements were not to be cast as stone. In other words there are circumstances were God does not demand fanatical behavior but common sense (in this case true hunger). The same principle will apply to the use of drugs. There IS a place for them as you’ll see and we can’t throw them out with a wave of the hand.

Brother P , of course, is not without inspiration in his beliefs. He uses quotes such as the following from SOP.

“People need to be taught that drugs do not cure disease. It is true that they sometimes afford present relief, and the patient appears to recover as the result of their use; this is because nature has sufficient vital force to expel the poison and to correct the conditions that caused the disease. Health is recovered in spite of the drug. But in most cases the drug only changes the form and location of the disease. Often the effect of the poison seems to be overcome for a time, but the results remain in the system and work great harm at some later period.

By the use of poisonous drugs, many bring upon themselves lifelong illness, and many lives are lost that might be [127] saved by the use of natural methods of healing. The poisons contained in many so-called remedies create habits and appetites that mean ruin to both soul and body. Many of the popular nostrums called patent medicines, and even some of the drugs dispensed by physicians, act a part in laying the foundation of the liquor habit, the opium habit, the morphine habit, that are so terrible a curse to society.” (The Ministry of Healing, p.126-127)

Wow, I would say that is pretty powerful counsel against the use of man-made drugs! This is but one of the many SOP references the brother has used during his recent anti-drug posting campaign. To be frank, the overall general principle that drugs most often hurt rather than heal would be sound theology and is indeed a fact.

But, just as the Jews did with Christ they resorted back to Moses for all their doctrine, failing to keep abreast with the advancing light that our King brought them –fresh new Truth! This is repeated in anti-type with us as SDA, holding onto SOP at the expense of the advancing scroll. On this issue of drugs, there is fresh new “meat in due season” that God provided us from His final prophet to our church–the “Elijah”(Mal. 4:5-6)

Let us read our present truth for today —

“A TIME FOR DRUGS RATHER THAN FOR FOOD

There are diseases which attack even the healthiest and best-cared for plants. For example, when a tree that is planted in the best of soils and is well cared for, becomes infested with insects or disease, then no matter what one does with the soil, he cannot thereby cause the pestilence to disappear: and if the tree is not sprayed with drugs that will exterminate the disease, the tree dies. In like manner, if one’s morals, diet, and hygiene, have been faultless and still are when he takes sick, and if his ailment is not hereditary, then no matter what more he does with his diet, he will realize no healing virtues from it. Drugs are his best remedy if prayer fails.

Again, if a healthy and well-cared-for horse takes sick, drugs of some kind are obviously the only possible cure. Thus if the daily living of a human being is faultless, and yet he takes sick, then outside of prayer, what can he do but resort to drugs?

For example, is it not true that one starving for food cannot be spared by taking in water, air or something other than food? And is it not also true that one’s broken and distorted arm cannot be set in place and healed right by dieting, poulticing, massaging, or by anything of the like? Nothing will do the trick, of course, but a competent physician to set the broken bones in place. “(Entering Wedge (p.21-22)

We see that the restoring truth of the Lord’s Elijah message DOES advocate drugs in certain conditions such as nothing working when one’s life is apparently good in regard to health laws, and they take sick. Or a serious onset of disease where a qualified physician is needed.

Let us bring this lesson home with a current situation among us today. COVID 19 is spreading around the world and seems to be quite serious “if” you get it. We say “if” because unfortunately there is a lot of monkey business going around with mass media promotion of this disease –ie. exaggeration of numbers and cases for a certain Globalist agenda. In other words, this is a Covert operation (Truthfully –Covert19) and not the great disease monster it is made out to be.

But this being said, there is a drug called hydroxychloroquine. This drug is proving to be a true Godsend medication for sufferers of COVID. Particularly in the early stages. But due to the Globalist plans for a future vaccination, the mass media has not been supportive of this therapy even though hundreds of doctors the world over are!

Make no mistake this Covert19 operation is just a globalist plan for the  New Word Order. But we as present truth believers know it is doomed to fail. Daniel 11:45 tells us their leader ‘King of the North” shall come to his end and thus the whole globalist plans will come crashing down! Praise the Lord!

But our main focus is that the Lord sent us a restoring message and brothers like bro. P unfortunately are repeating the folly of the Jews and not advancing, let this be a straight-up lesson for us today!

“Jesus answered and said to them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things.” (Matt. 17:11)

First the Truth then the Kingdom, amen!
