DEMOCRACY, COMMUNISM, CATHOLICISM, OR PROTESTANTISM–WHICH IS NEXT TO RULE THE WORLD?

May 14, 2022


TEXT OF ADDRESS BY V.T. HOUTEFF,
MINISTER OF DAVIDIAN 7TH-DAY ADVENTISTS
SABBATH, MAY 15, 1948
MT. CARMEL CHAPEL
WACO, TEXAS

TEXT FOR PRAYER

Christ Reproduced In His People

Christ’s Object Lessons, page 69, beginning with the first paragraph:

“‘When the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.’ Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation of Himself in His church. When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own. It is the privilege of every Christian, not only to look for, but to hasten the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Were all who profess His name bearing fruit to His glory, how quickly the whole world would be sown with the seed of the gospel. Quickly the last great harvest would be ripened, and Christ would come to gather the precious grain.”

Here is truth that tells when we may expect Christ to come and gather His own: “When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people.”

We should now pray that we put forth the effort to grow as Christians, to love and work for others, to reproduce Christ’s character in us, then this old world will come to an end, and the new world will for us commence.

DEMOCRACY, COMMUNISM, CATHOLICISM, OR PROTESTANTISM–WHICH IS NEXT TO RULE THE WORLD?

Are the nations from now on to live in two worlds? Man may guess, but he cannot predict. God alone knows the future. And if He does not tell us, then we shall never know ahead of time.

 

Daniel 7; Revelation 13, 17
 
Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 3

On this charted symbolism is seen the world in prophecy from the prophet Daniel’s time down to our day, and beyond. In this symbolical prophecy, therefore, we must search to see if there is any information given on the subject in question.

We and the majority in Christendom commonly believe that the lion represents the ancient empire of Babylon, the bear Medo-Persia, the leopard Grecia, and the non-descript beast in his two phases the empires of Pagan and Papal Rome. But as to the leopard-like beast, and the scarlet-colored, we may not hold views alike. And that is why we need to study now as never before if we are to know the Truth.

If the beasts of Daniel, the first four beasts on the chart, represent four periods of time, one following the other, then why should not the last three likewise represent three periods of time, one following the other? — Logically they should. We need not, however, wholly depend upon logic, for the symbols themselves should define the time and the systems they portray.

In contrast to the crownless horns on the non-descript beast (Daniel’s fourth beast) you see the crowned horns on the leopard-like beast of Revelation 13.

Why crowns on the one and no crowns on the other? — The only logical and scriptural answer that can be given is this: The angel explained to Daniel that the horns on the non-descript beast symbolize kings that had no kingdom as yet, that they would someday arise, take up their crowns and reign. (Daniel 7:24). And history records that

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 4

this happened when Pagan Rome fell, and that the kings that then took their crowns, kingdoms, are the kings who reach down to our day. These kings have now almost dwindled away, their thrones are being taken by Fascism, Communism, or by some form of Republicanism.

The leopard-like beast, therefore, having his horns crowned, definitely denotes that he comes into being after the career of the non-descript beast, after the fall of Pagan Rome, and during the time the kings receive their kingdoms, for crowned horns denote crowned kings.

Moreover, the leopard-like beast blasphemed God and His tabernacle forty-two months, which is exactly the same length of time in which the little horn power of the non-descript beast was to speak against the Most High and to wear out the saints. He was to do this for a time (one year), times (two years), and dividing of time (half year) equal to forty-two months (Dan. 7:25). Both the leopard-like and the non-descript beast in the second phase, were against God and His people for the same length of time — forty-two symbolical months.

Plainly, then, the leopard-like beast reigns contemporaneously with the second phase of the non-descript beast.

Still further, the leopard-like beast is a composite beast of all the beasts before it! His mouth of a lion, feet of a bear, body of a leopard, and ten horns are marks which identify him to be a descendant of the four ancient world empires — Babylon, Medo-Persia, Grecia, and Rome. He is therefore the symbol of the world of today, the fifth symbolical beast.

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 5

Now the fact that the wounded head of the leopard-like was to have his wound healed, and also the fact that the scarlet-colored beast of Revelation 17 is a beast that has the same characteristics as the leopard-like beast, having ten horns and seven heads but no wound on any of them, proves that the latter beast is symbolical of the time after the deadly wound is healed, of a seventh period of time for the two-horn beast comes before the scarlet-colored beast, and he is the one who makes an image of the beast before it.

We are now ready to see by means of this symbolical beast, the seventh, the kind of world we are entering into, — whether Democracy, Communism, Catholicism, or Protestantism, is next to rule. Light on the subject can be seen from the horns, and from the woman that rides, rules, the beast.

Let us first determine whom the woman represents. The first clue is in the widely known fact that Inspiration never symbolizes civil governments by a woman, but It does repeatedly symbolize a religious institution, a church, by a woman, one that brings converts to its creed. The beast, as do all other symbolical beasts, we have seen, represents the world, while the horns represent the rulers. The horns, ten in number are, moreover, significant of universality as are the ten toes on the great image of Daniel 2, and the ten virgins of Matthew 25. The heads, seven in number, also signify completeness, the whole.

Now the fact that the horns have no kingdom as yet, while the woman rides the beast, also the fact that the woman rides it, rules it, is

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 6

evidence enough that the world is next to be ruled by an ecclesiastical body, not purely by Democracy or by Communism.

That the woman riding the beast symbolizes the world in this day and age is evident from the fact that the ten horns, the civil powers that be during the reign of Babylon, hate the woman, the Church. Communism being the only world-wide ruling power since the world began to hate religion, the Church, is itself solid proof that the ten horns are symbolical of Communism, and that the beast represents a period of time in which Communism is about to dominate the world’s seat of government. God is nevertheless to intercept by putting it in their hearts to “give their power and strength unto the beast,” “and to give their kingdom unto the beast, until the word of God is fulfilled.”

Thus they receive power one symbolical hour with the beast, they themselves not having a kingdom of their own. And in the end of the “hour” they “make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” Rev. 17:16.

Since the woman is a “mother of harlots” (Rev. 17:5), it is obvious that other sects have sprung from her.

We have now seen that the world is next to be ruled not by Democracy, not by Communism, not by Protestantism, nor by Catholicism. It is to be ruled by a system of religion in which all her daughters participate — a church and state government, which is to be an image or likeness of the leopard-like beast before it received its deadly wound.

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 7

Soon, Brother, Sister, we are to enter into this period of persecution, and how thankful we should be that there is no need to fear, no need to be taken off guard. For with the Light now shining on our pathway we should know what to expect and how to cope with the situation. Truly “unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness.” Ps. 112:4.

The Lord Is Coming

The Lord is coming! seas, retire!
Ye mountains, melt to liquid fire!
Ye oceans, cease to ebb and flow!
His stately steppings ye should know.

The Lord is coming! Who shall stand?
Who shall be found at His right hand?–
He with the righteous garment on
Which Christ our glorious King hath won.

The Lord is coming! watch and pray!
So shalt thou hasten that glad day;
So shalt thou then escape the snare,
And Christ’s eternal glory share.

–Anon.

Sunday Worship in God’s house?

April 30, 2022



Let’s face it, we as Seventh-day Adventists were given a message back in 1844, a message that was to come from the Lord through His servant –Ellen G. White. Yes amazingly today, it’s as if we never got any message from the Lord through His prophetess!

Shame and pity are all we can describe in what you are about to see. Our own people, His Church, so-called, has stooped so slow that a great abomination is occurring within His house each week! Yet few are alarmed. Recently we made a video on our YouTube channel that goes into what is happening within our SDA church today. The following is the link. Please pray about this as this will surely not go without righteous judgment when that day comes,

“For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

For by fire and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.

They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the Lord.

For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.

And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.

And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the Lord out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the Lord, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the Lord.” (Isaiah 66:15-20)

From Riches to Rags and Rags to Riches, Part 2 of 2

April 16, 2022

Many have heard of poor people who struck it rich by winning the Lottery. Case after case tell of this magical dream come true. Yet few know that a certain group of generally poor people, the 144,000, among us today will far outstrip these lottery winners in wealth and riches! Not only that but be given a position so blessed and exalted that the Lord calls them — saviors! Amazing.

“And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites, even unto Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south. And saviors shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau, and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.” (Obadiah 1:20-21)

So right now there exist obscure ones among us who the Lord will exalt when the time is right. Speaking of the times in the land of the final Loud Cry headquarters (AKA –the Kingdom) we read —

“Therefore your gates shall be open continually; They shall not be shut day or night, That men may bring to you the wealth of the Gentiles, And their kings in procession.” (Isaiah 60:11)

“Besides being skilled agronomists, artisans, and tradesmen, these governors of the Kingdom, as living embodiments of genuine Christianity, are to be expert international bankers, economists, personnel and traffic engineers, and provisioners, together handling “the forces” and “the riches of the Gentiles.” Isa. 6:5, 11; 61:6. And thus variously equipped with these excellent proficiencies, they are, above all, to be “Priests of the Lord…Ministers of our God”–“men wondered at.” Isa. 61:6; Zech. 3:8.”(5 ANS, p.23)

Not only riches are given them, but kings shall submit to them as well —

“And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in My wrath I smote thee, but in My favour have I had mercy on thee.” (Isaiah 60:10)

Thus, we see that the current undisclosed ones (144,000) will have Kings minister to them! A true rags to riches story!

“Isa. 60:17 — “For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.”

Yes, of better than the best shall the house of God be built.” (1 TG, no. 40, p.21)

The final Loud Cry headquarters will be precious, complete with a majestic “house of God”!

In summary, soon the tables turn — the rich become poor and the poor become rich! Amen.

For a video series of the final glorious and rich kingdom set up in the holy land see our YouTube video series. Be Blessed.

From Riches to Rags and Rags to Riches, Part 1 of 2

April 2, 2022

Let’s face it, from an early age many of us learned the great value of money. I remember as a kid getting 35 cents a week for doing chores and we thought that was great! Of course, things were much cheaper back then. But the idea of what money could do was engrained in our minds from an early age. This would only get more firm and desirable as we grew up.

Yet our loving God warns us many times about the love of money. Yes, He even uses heathens to warn. In fact there was a popular hit song made in 1978, despite being heathen and worldly in nature, its message NAILS what money does to many, it’s holding power —

“Are you under the power of Gold?”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kk75J-VwUOU

Before we begin we are reminded that the Word tells us that money can be a trap.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (1 Tim. 6:10)

“And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou will enter into life, keep the Commandments.

He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? Jesus said unto him, If thou will be perfect, go and sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” (Matt; 19:16-24)

FROM RICHES TO RAGS

In today’s world, we generally know who is the “richest of the rich”. Forbes magazine annually publishes the top 100 richest people on earth. Only one dirty little secret. They leave out the “real” richest ones! Do the Rothschilds ring a bell? They should, for their family basically created the modern world’s banking system in the early 1800s. They and the Rockefellers, for example, are truly the richest of the rich today. There exist about 7 or 8 closely-knit families (aka dynasties) that basically control most of the world’s money (Gold, Silver, the printing presses, etc.)

As some know, the Rothschilds have Biblical significance as well, due to their control of Great Britain for centuries. The “queen” is just a figurehead as many know. Great Britain in the end times is called the king of the North, along with the other Assyrian nations (USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, France for example). Thus the USA is a leader among the Assyrian nations and is considered KON by this connection. However the Elijah message tells us —

“Plainly then, during the time of the end Great Britain is the king of the north …”(1 TG, no. 4, p.22)

“Because of idolatry, the Assyrian was permitted to take God’s ancient people and their pleasant land. And certain it is that the Assyrian will control the land just so long as God’s people continue in idolatry. But, just as soon as all idols are cast aside, — yes, as soon as the great revival and reformation takes place in the hearts of the people, — then the Assyrian (the power that now rules them) shall certainly fall, and God’s people shall just as certainly return. The Assyrian shall thus fall, not at the sword of a mighty man, and not of a mean man, but “through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod.” Isa. 30:31. (1 TG, no.33, p.4-5)

Also In Daniel, we know that the King of the North ( Identification key to the KON — Tract 12, p.86-87) will be VERY rich, for it says —

“But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt..” (Daniel 11:43)

Who today basically runs much of the world’s wealth? You got it the Rothschild’s banking empire, its tentacles far-reaching into nearly every nation (North Korea and Iran, being two exceptions).

So what has this riches to rags idea have to do with end times? Verse 45 of Daniel tells us —

“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.”

You see brethren, soon the most powerful men by virtue of their riches shall be brought down! Their rulership shall soon cease! In fact, many of those caught in that web of desire for riches shall meet up with this Word of God and fulfill it —

“In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.” (Isaiah 2:20-21)

Thus, the rich are soon to become poor. Rothschilds, Rockerfellers, and all the wealthy men of the earth will no longer hold the power they now have, the world’s power structure will turn to the meek and lowly, yet RICH in God’s Word and power! And even riches too!

In the next post, we’ll discuss the “rags to riches” part.

A FEAST THAT ROLLS AWAY THE VEIL, OPENS THE GATES, AND CAUSES DEATH TO FLEE AWAY

March 19, 2022

TEXT OF ADDRESS BY V.T. HOUTEFF,
MINISTER OF D. SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS
SABBATH, SEPTEMBER 6, 1947
MT. CARMEL CHAPEL
WACO, TEXAS

TEXT FOR PRAYER

Turn From Debate; Present The Truth

I shall read from Christ’s Object Lessons, beginning on page 40, the last paragraph–

“Instead of discussing erroneous theories, or seeking to combat the opponents of the gospel, follow the example of Christ. Let fresh truths from God’s treasure-house flash into life. ‘Preach the word.’ ‘Sow beside all waters.’ ‘Be instant in season, out of season.’ ‘He that hath My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the Lord.’ ‘Every word of God is pure…. Add thou not unto His words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.'”

We should pray this afternoon for the ability to follow the example of Christ in teaching. We should also pray that we shall remember that we are instructed not to engage in debate with those who disagree with us; that Christ did not debate, and neither must we if we are to win; that God will supply us with fresh truths to bring to the people; that if such truths do not convince the opposers of the “everlasting gospel,” nothing will, even if the dead should arise for a witness against them; that we exalt the Bible above all other books; that we measure all else with the Bible yardstick, and forever break all other measuring sticks.

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 2

A FEAST THAT ROLLS AWAY THE VEIL, OPENS THE GATES, AND CAUSES DEATH TO FLEE AWAY

The text of our study this afternoon is Isaiah 25 and 26. In order properly to orientate ourselves to the subject matter, we shall begin with the sixth verse of chapter twenty-five. Afterwards we shall study the first five verses.

Isa. 25:6 — “And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.”

First of all we should find the truth of this figurative mountain. For this information we must go to the last verse of the twenty-fourth chapter, because the story of the twenty-fifth chapter begins with the previous chapter. We shall read these verses connectedly:

Isa. 24:23; 25:6 — “Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in Mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before His ancients gloriously. And in this mountain [Mount Zion] shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.”

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 3

Here you see that “Mount Zion” is the mountain on which the Lord will prepare a feast for all people, a feast of tempting things. There will the people gather together.

Isa. 25:7 — “And He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covenant cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.”

When the covering under which the nations now stand, rolls away, then shall they find themselves in the open — vulnerable to “wind” and “storm.” Yes, when the veil which now hangs over all peoples of earth, is pulled down, then shall they see that which they cannot now see. And what then?–

Isa. 25:8-10 — “He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation. For in this mountain shall the hand of the Lord rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under Him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.”

To make these great events possible, not only the ones who at that time rule the land, but Moab, too, we see, shall be trodden down. And who could Moab be if not the Arabs who now lay heavy claim to the land of Palestine? Soon the world will find that God has not forsaken the earth, and that God is master of the situation.

Isa. 25:11, 12 — “And he shall spread forth His

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 4

hands in the midst of them, as He that swimmeth spreadeth forth His hands to swim: and He shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands. And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall He bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.”

These verses hold the fact before us that it matters not what kind of fortification men may devise, such shall nevertheless be brought down as a straw when the Lord manifests His power. Having now clearly seen this wonderful Bible Truth, let it be you to say:

Isa. 25:1 — “O Lord, Thou art my God; I will exalt Thee, I will praise Thy name; for Thou hast done wonderful things; Thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.”

Here we are shown that as a result of this revealed Truth, some will truly accept the Lord of the Bible as their God, and will pledge to exalt Him and ever to praise His wonderful name because they see that He has done wonderful things. His counsels of old will they not turn down because they will know from experience that His counsels are faithfulness and Truth. They will from personal experience know God’s power and say:

Isa. 25:2, 3 — “For Thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built. Therefore shall the strong people glorify Thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear Thee.”

The city of this verse must be the one first mentioned in Isaiah 24:

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 5

“The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in. There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.

“They [those who are not shaken down] shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea. Wherefore glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel in the isles of the sea. From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous [as a result, there shall be converts from the four corners of the earth].

“But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.” Isa. 24:10-17.

The following quotation from the Spirit of Prophecy adds light to these verses:

“I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God’s word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world.” — Testimonies, Vol. 9, pp. 28 and 29.

Isa. 26:1 — “In that day shall this song be sung

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 6

in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.”

The song for the majesty of the Lord is therefore to be sung in the Promised Land, and there will the saints have a city that cannot be shaken down, for it is to have salvation for walls. Then it shall be said:

Isa. 26:2 — “Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the Truth may enter in.”

Here is taught that all this takes place in a day of salvation, in a day that the gates can be opened for a righteous nation to enter in. Yes, a whole nation, of such as should be saved, not a sinner among them, shall then respond to the call, “Come out of her My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

Isa. 26:3, 4 — “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusted in Thee. Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.”

Although throughout the years of history nations have developed great power, yet not one has retained that power forever. But we are here reassured that those who trust in the Lord Jehovah shall have eternal peace and everlasting strength.

Isa. 26:5-10 — “For He bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, He layeth it low; He layeth it low, even to the ground; He bringeth it even to the dust. The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 7

the needy. The way of the just is uprightness: Thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just. Yea, in the way of Thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for Thee; the desire of our soul is to Thy name, and to the remembrance of Thee. With my soul have I desired Thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek Thee early: for when Thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord.”

These verse plainly tell us that when the judgments of God fall upon the earth, the righteous minded will learn righteousness; but the unrepentant sinners will not learn righteousness regardless what is done for them. And this is why they are to be barred from the congregation of the righteous. The righteous, however, even now feel the Lord’s mighty hand and painfully they declare:

Isa. 26:11 — “Lord, when Thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of Thine enemies shall devour them.”

Indeed, when God’s hand is lifted up to deliver His people, the wicked will not see it. But after the righteous are delivered, the wicked will clearly see and envy, but it shall be to their shame and too late to do them any good. Even now while “the latter rain” is falling, the self-righteous who imagine that they have need of nothing, are either running away from it or pulling their raincoats over their heads. The seekers of righteousness, though, come out in

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 8

the open. Thus they learn to say–

Isa. 26:12 — “Lord, Thou wilt ordain peace for us: for Thou also hast wrought all our works in us.”

This can be said only by those who allow the Lord to perform His work in their hearts, so that they may praise Him:

Isa. 26:13-16 — “O Lord our God, other lords beside Thee have had dominion over us: but by Thee only will we make mention of Thy name. They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast Thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish. Thou hast increased the nation, O Lord, Thou hast increased the nation: Thou art glorified: Thou hadst removed it far unto all the ends of the earth. Lord, in trouble have they visited Thee, they poured out a prayer when Thy chastening was upon them.”

These verses declare that Israel of the promises, not the unbelieving Jew, have increased in number since having been removed from their land, since having been scattered to the ends of the earth. While this chastening (being driven away from their land) is still upon them, they pour out prayer and say:

Isa. 26:17, 18 — “Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in Thy sight, O Lord. We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.”

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 9

Here is shown that the eyes of the penitent are to be opened; they are to see themselves as God sees them, and confess that they have heretofore failed in their efforts, that they have travailed, have been in pain, but have brought forth only “wind,” as it were, while the impenitent think that they themselves are rich and increased with goods, are doing a great deed, and are in need of nothing.

Yes, the church may now boast of her achievements, or her so-called large membership, but not long hence will she, too, discover that she has failed to finish her work, that the world is still destroying the earth, that her people are unsaved and that rather than having brought forth salvation, she has brought forth nothing but “wind.”

“In the mighty sifting soon to take place, we shall be better able to measure the strength of Israel. The signs reveal that the time is near when the Lord will manifest that his fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor.” — Testimonies, Vol. 5, pg. 80.

Isa. 26:19 — “Thy dead men shall live, together with My dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.”

Not only the living, but the dead also shall be gathered into the “strong city.” We already hear the Lord pleading with us all, saying:

Isa. 26:20 — “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.”

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 10

This plea shows that we are approaching the time of trouble and that God is anxious to have us under cover. The wise will hear Him and will accept the chambers, the protection He provides for them.

Isa. 26:21 — “For, behold, the Lord cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”

All these truths which God is now bringing to our attention, point to one thing: That the great and terrible day of the Lord is at hand, that He is soon to manifest His power and shake the earth so that everything that cannot be shaken may stand. Are you not glad, Brother, Sister, that God is giving you first opportunity to get ready for the day of God, to hold fast to His ever-increasing Truth?

The First Domino to Fall?

March 5, 2022

As we know in the domino trick, the first push of that first domino causes the other dominos to be affected and ultimately they all come crashing down. Recently the world saw the Russian army invade Ukraine. The main stream media, predictably began their analysis of the ” how and why” of it. But can we really trust them to be accurate, to give the true unbias account of the FACTS?

Well do you remember Saddam Hussien and his store pile of “weapons of mass destruction”? Many of us do, and we subsequently learned it was all baloney, a concoction of lies and falsehoods to prepare the masses for the Globalist’s invasion of a sovereign country. Thousands were killed on a false premise!

Satan as we know has been allowed to run the world to a large degree ever since his ploy in the garden worked. And as such, being the “father of lies” has led his workers down that same path–lies and falsehoods.

Our King says, “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies “(John 8:44).

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” (1 Peter 5:8-9)

Indeed many people will suffer from this war, instigated by the arch-enemy of souls. But the question is —
Is this that first domino to fall that will ultimate in the great world war predicted in God’s word?

“Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.” (Zech 14:1-7)

So we must be watchful as to what is really happening with this war. To that end, we want to show you a video report that Kim Iverson from Hill.TV has made about the “back story” you are not being told about the real how and why Russia has invaded Ukraine.

Ultimately the Lord is pulling the strings on this but we thought it’d be good to see the real reasons (back story) for that attack. Be blessed!

PREFACE

PERSONALLY WATCHING FOR EVERY RAY OF LIGHT.

One who entrusts to another the investigation of a message from the Lord, is making flesh his arm, and thus is foolishly acting as without a mind of his own. And “the mind that depends upon the judgment of others is certain, sooner or later, to be misled.” — Education, p. 231.

Similarly, one who allows prejudice to bar him from a candid investigation of anything new, coming in the name of the Lord, is unwittingly an infidel.

Likewise he who is satisfied with his present attainments in the Word of God, says in effect: “I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing.”

All these, in variously acting out the part which provoked the condemnation written against the Laodiceans, thereby fulfilling the prophecy which they ought not fulfill, are preparing themselves to be spued out (Rev. 3:14-18). And if they continue in their self-satisfied attitude that they have all the truth, and so have need of nothing more, they will spurn every new claimant to truth and toss the message into the discard because it comes through an unexpected channel. Certainly, then, were this tract not the unfolding of prophecy, the fact is

Tract 1 page 3

inevitable that when the unfoldment did come, they would treat it in like manner, and consequently toss away their salvation!

Throughout the ages, all who have put their trust in the so-called wise men, and foremost Christians of the day, all reputedly godly men, have by these very ones been bereft of the crown of eternal life, as were the Jewish laity in the days of Christ because of their failing to assume full responsibility for their own salvation. Presumptuously trusting in the wisdom of their so-called “great men,” they declined to believe in Christ’s words “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth,…Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.” Matt. 11:25 “Where is the wise? where is the scribe?…hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?” 1 Cor 1:20.

“…if a message comes that you do not understand, take pains that you may hear the reasons the messenger may give, comparing scripture with scripture, that you may know whether or not it is sustained by the word of God.” — Testimonies on Sabbath-School Work, p. 65.

Will you not, therefore, Brother, Sister, cease to copy the mistakes of others? Will you not profit by them? If you will, you are duty-bound to use your own mind in reaching for salvation, lest you fail to understand the saving truth in the momentous expose, the

PRE-“ELEVENTH HOUR” EXTRA! THE DARDANELLES OF THE BIBLE.

The call of Ezekiel to the prophetic office is one of the most interesting experiences of the ancient seers, and the revelation of what he saw by the river Chebar is perhaps of greater importance to heaven and earth at this time than is any other vision on sacred record, because in a remarkable way it reveals That Which unites Heaven with Earth, even as the Dardanelles links two important seas. Thus this study of Ezekiel’s vision which brings to light earth’s being visited by the Majesty of the Universe, may be aptly termed, “The Dardanelles of the Bible.”

The reader who would best comprehend this seemingly most confusing and complicated of Bible symbolisms, will follow the cover-page objectification, in conjunction with

The Prophet’s Description of the Mysteries Herein Treated.

“And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

“Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; ance they had the likeness of a man. And every one had four faces, and

Tract 1 page 5

every one had four wings. And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass. And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings. Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went everyone straight forward.

“As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle….

“And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.” Ezek. 1:4-10, 27, 28.

“And it came to pass, that when He had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, from between the cherubims; then he went

Tract 1 page 6

in, and stood beside the wheels.” Ezek. 10:6.

To this marvelous scene which Ezekiel saw on the river bank in the land of the Chaldeans, our undivided attention is now called. Being “the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord,” obviously, then, it was

The Lord on One of His Thrones.

Besides this divine appearance which Ezekiel saw (Ezek. 1:28), the Bible describes God enthroned on three other occasions — once as seen by Isaiah, and twice as seen by John the Revelator; to wit:

(1) “…I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried and the house was filled with smoke.” Isa. 6:1-4.

(2) “And immediately I was in the spirit: and behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne… And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns

Tract 1 page 7

of gold… and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.” Rev. 4:2, 4-6.

(3) “And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.” Rev. 22:1.

Since the throne seen by Isaiah was a “train” (retinue), and since as it entered into the temple, “the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke” (Isa. 6:1, 4), it therefore is a traveling throne, whereas both the one of Revelation 4, having the “sea of glass” before it, and the one of Revelation 22, having the “river…of life” before it, are stationary thrones.

Though the one which Ezekiel saw is similar to the one which Isaiah was shown, yet they are distinct and separate thrones, for each of the “seraphims” of Isaiah’s vision has six wings, while each of the “cherubims” of Ezekiel’s vision has but four. In the latter, moreover, the cherubims stood under the throne, whereas in the former, they stood above it. On record, therefore, are four thrones — two stationary, and two traveling.”

A Challenging Question

February 5, 2022

During the active ministerial work of brother Victor Houteff, he made several “symbolic code” newsletters that went out into the SDA field. In those compilations, he often received correspondence of inquiries about the teachings he was promoting. He was challenged and he did not shy away from directly answering them. Here is an interesting one. Be blessed.

Question:

“What Biblical proof have you for placing as you do the seals of Revelation, chapters four to seven and the first part of the eighth? Why make them span the entire world’s history, when the Seventh-day Adventist denomination has been teaching for years that they begin after the crucifixion?”

Answer:

The questioner has a perfect right to ask for Biblical proof of our interpretations of the Scriptures, but he must remember that our rights are as good as his. Hence, before answering his questions, we would like to ask him to give us but one Scripture as the basis upon which he can establish that the seals span the Christian era only. Our being as well informed as the questioner on all the doctrines which the denomination teaches, and of the proofs upon which they are based, we are free to say that the strongest and the only foundation upon which the denominational interpretation stands is grounded upon the presumptuous idea that the white horse and he that sat on him, going forth conquering and to conquer (Rev. 6:2), represents the early Christian church in her best spiritual condition.

This position is assumed upon the unmitigated presumption that the color of the horse (white) must represent the purity of the early church, and that the words, “conquering and to conquer,” stand for her rapid growth after Pentecost.

We agree that “white” stands for purity, and that “conquering and to conquer” could represent the growth of the church, but what proof would that be if such an idea is contradicted by all other truth? For example, we call the reader’s attention to the fact that when John was about to be shown in vision the events in the seven seals, it was about sixty-five years after the Pentecost and in the period when the church was already declining from her spiritual condition. The voice which he heard said to him: “Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter” (Rev. 4:1); that is, the event which he was to be shown was to transpire in the future, “hereafter,” from the time John had the vision.

Now let us take notice of the event he saw. Says John: “I was in the Spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the back side, sealed with seven seals. And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look there-on. And I wept much,…and one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.” (Rev. 4:2; 5:1,3-5.)

The event of which John prophesied was to transpire in the future from John’s time instead of having already taken place.

Hence, the idea that the white horse with its rider represents the rider in her purity after the Pentecost is only a presumption. Moreover, it is taught that the book with the seven seals is the book of “Daniel and Revelation,” and that those who interpreted the seals are the ones who opened the book, whereas, a “strong angel proclaimed with a loud voice,” that “no man in heaven, nor in the earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.” Consequently, we would like to ask the questioner how could the men who interpreted the seals open the book if they could not even “look thereon”?

Still further, whoever heard that the church could be symbolized by a man riding on a horse! Furthermore, those who are fighting against the sealing message on the pretext that it contradicts the Spirit of Prophecy have themselves altogether closed their eyes to the voice of the Spirit of Prophecy by a flat contradiction of it, for they claim that the book with the seven seals is the book of “Daniel and Revelation,” whereas, the Spirit of Prophecy, in perfect harmony with “The Shepherd’s Rod,” says:

“Thus the Jewish leaders made their choice. Their decision was registered in the book which John saw in the hand of Him that sat upon the throne, the book which no man could open. In all its vindictiveness this decision will appear before them in the day when this book is unsealed by the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.”—“Christ’s Object Lessons,” p. 294.

The above quoted passage shows that this book contains the names and record of those who profess to be the people of God. Then, how could it be the book of “Daniel and The Revelation”?

We would not take longer in disproving the former interpretation of the seals, but we shall briefly prove the reason why the seals cover the entire history of the human race.

One of the proofs that the seals include the entire world’s history is in the fact that the book with the seven seals is “The book of life,” which contains the record of God’s professed people, and also in the fact that it was to be opened in the day of judgment.

Hence, it proves that in 1844, when the judgment began, Christ opened the book before the throng that surrounded the throne, and this being the Lamb’s book of Life (which no one but the Lamb could open), containing the record of the people from Adam’s time and on, it is obvious that the seven seals, which were broken at the beginning of the judgment, contain the entire history of the human race, divided into seven periods, which sealed the book up to the day of judgment. See our exposition on the seals in “The Shepherd’s Rod,” Vol. 2, pp. 194-221. (Symbolic Code vol. 2, no. 7-8, p.9-10)

Corralled Like Sheep

January 22, 2022
17,028 Crowd Of People With Masks Stock Photos, Pictures & Royalty-Free  Images - iStock
What we are witnessing today is truly remarkable. The masses have been led down a road like a sheepherder leads his flock. The Bible is very clear about “leaning on flesh” and what happens if we do. let us read —

“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” (Jer. 17:5)

Granted, the heathen, as well as some of God’s people, are submitting to leaning on flesh today but this Word of God will apply just the same. What are we specifically talking about? The mass submission to the “pandemic” restrictions and instructions. Yes, we put that word in parenthesis because, as you’ll see, people are growing in knowledge about this so-called pandemic and are correctly calling it a
“plandemic”. The old saying that applies now is “the horse is out of the barn”. There is just too much information out there now, as opposed to one year ago, to ignore.

We have mentioned often to others, that we are truly amazed and did not know there were so many willing subservient people, willing to obey the most non-logical even non-sensical instructions from so-called authorities. Also what this shows us is that when the time comes for the “mark of the beast” to be in place, there will be, as now, many around the world who won’t hesitate to blindly follow orders, even down to their death for eternity!

The leaning on flesh mainly comes from the Globalists mass media network around the world. The Covid-19 agenda had been set forth about Feb/ March of 2020 through that network. Politicians and so-called medical experts like Anthony Fauci also led the charge. The masses who watched CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, BBC, etc all listened as they were told the big bad monster was going to get them and they had better listen up to what they wanted them to do. So-called health experts, the WHO (World Health Org.) and CDC (Centers for Disease Control) led the call to cooperate.

We don’t know about you, but we still see regularly, people alone walking outside in the fresh air wearing a mask! People driving alone in the car wearing a mask! They have been programmed as it were, submission at its finest! On a more personal note, my own church has about 90% of the members wearing masks IN HIS SANCTUARY! That’s right, such little faith in the Mighty Healer, the One who protects His people!

“And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?” (Matt. 8:26)

Yet despite this, the honest truth-loving ones, began to –investigate the situation. What they found was downright alarming! There are too many aspects to bring up in this post, as to why the so-called pandemic is false and misleading but suffice to say — it’s truly a plandemic made up by the Globalists for their long-awaited “New World Order”.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82oNdnTKoUg

Yet as we have reported before, the great I AM will have something to say about this Globalist plan.

“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.” (Dan. 11:45)

The Covid plan shall come to its end even as the King of the North will come to his end. The Rothschilds-led Globalist scheme shall not succeed because the Lord has other plans for mankind.

In the prophecy of Daniel 2, we know that Daniel saw this about the end time nations —

“And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.” (Dan. 2:42)

Daniel prophecies – Mayfair Bible Church

Thus the Lord said the nations will NOT be uniform and united, try as the Globalists will.

So in closing, we see that it is very sad to see that the masses today are showing us that soon they will most likely submit to the powerful delusion of the Beast and the false prophet as spoken of in Rev. 13. Despite this ALL will have a chance for redemption should they be courageous and take a stand for the Truth as proclaimed by His end-time servants, the 144,000.
