JEREMIAH 50:6 MY PEOPLE HATH BEEN LOST SHEEP: THEIR SHEPHERDS HAVE CAUSED THEM TO GO ASTRAY, THEY HAVE TURNED THEM AWAY ON THE MOUNTAINS: THEY HAVE GONE FROM MOUNTAIN TO HILL, THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN THEIR RESTINGPLACE.
Ezekiel 34:6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them. Ezekiel 34:11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
Jeremiah 23:1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
After God brought His children out of Egypt, in spite of the fact that He has displayed His power over the Egyptians so that His people will know without a shadow of doubt that it was the God, the living God who indeed saved them from Pharaoh’s bondage.
Yet, not long after they got into the wilderness, they started to complain against the God of Heaven. The God who has worked and displayed His power in Egypt to bring them out slavery.
Likewise brothers and sisters, in these last days, modern day pharisees has forgotten about the God that has taken them out of spiritual Egypt which represents sin.
They have forgotten about the God who has taken them out of Babylon, out of the hand of the popes and to stand them up on the rock of salvation which is Jesus Christ.
And to protest against the doctrines, teachings and wine of Babylon.
I’m going to share with you part of the reason why God has raised us up as a movement ( which is the Seventh Day Adventist movement)
In Revelation Chapter 18, the Bible described the loud cry message beginning in verse 1 that we must give to the world along with the third Angel message to call a people out of Babylon BUT out of sin into something, or into someone.
And that would be the loving arms of Jesus Christ. The Righteousness of Jesus Christ as Revelation chapter 14:12 describe ( Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. ). Thus the Righteousness of Jesus Christ.
And also we are told within the writings of Sister white why God has given us this message for this time. “The Lord has been pleased to give His people the third angel’s message as a testing message to bear to the world. John beholds a people distinct and separate from the world, who refuse to worship the beast or his image, who bear God’s sign, keeping holy His Sabbath—the seventh-day to be kept holy as a memorial of the living God, the Creator of heaven and earth. Of them the apostle writes, “Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”—Letter 98, 1900.”
In other words a people God has set free as He has set the children of Israel free from the bondage of the Egyptians. In other words brothers and sisters, since God has set us free from Bondage and separate us from the world, distinct from the world, that means we have the freedom in Christ Jesus to expose Babylon (Ephesians 5:11). Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
We should not be joining Babylon in any shape or form. But Notice this article headline from the screenshot below:
“A growing Seventh-Day Adventist congregation based in Florence bought the former Blessed Sacrament Church at 354 Elm St. for $455,000.”
So one may be asking “Okay what’s the big deal, why bringing this up?” “They bought the building, it’s their building now in spite the fact that they paid over 450,000$(dollars) for it.”
One question I would like to ask: did they get a good deal when they purchased this property?
Note this from the mass live news article below:
“The Catholic parishes of Northampton, which merged into St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in 2009, hadn’t used the Blessed Sacrament building in more than two years… The Catholic Diocese spotted MOLD in the Building as the reason it stopped worshiping there”
So the question again: did they get a good deal? What was the reason why the Roman Catholic diocese and others stopped to worship there?
It was Because of a mold problem. How much did the Seventh Day Adventist church pay for this?
They paid 455,000$ for a building that has been sitting for two years and who’s building is that?
Is there some string attached to this agreement beside the mold problem there?
Read carefully it goes on to tell us: “The diocese sells real estate with a DEED RESTRICTION prohibiting any use INCONSISTENT with the TEACHINGS of the Roman Catholic Church, AS DETERMINED BY THE BISHOP.”
Did you get this? What comes with this beside the mold which is very harmful for your health? Restriction. What kind of restriction? Its says one more time the diocese sells real estate with a deed restriction prohibiting any use inconsistent with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, AS DETERMINED BY THE BISHOP.
In other words the Seventh day Adventist church there pay 455,000 dollars for a building that has been infected with mold and that can cause some serious lungs problems and cancer.
In addition to that it came with some restrictions. The Seventh Day Adventist church literally purchased, paid the Roman Catholic chruch money to stop proclaiming the third Angel’s message and the fourth Angel’s message. That’s what happened here brothers and sisters.
They agreed with the restriction because it says in the news article that they can only preach teachings that are in agreement, consistent with the Roman Catholic church.
No wonder brothers and sisters, the General Conference of Seventh day Adventists removed everything that has to with the man of sin, with the pope of Rome from the book Great Controversy and they gave the world the GREAT HOAX. What a waste of money!
Well as a matter of fact, to them is not really a waste of money otherwise why would they do this(450k us dollars for an infected building)?
If they were true Protestants why would they 1) Bought this building from the Roman Catholic church and 2) to abide by this restriction: unless the bishop tells you it’s okay to teach this or that.
What happen if you try to worship on Sabbath? Well they may allow it for the moment but what happen if they go back to their manual and they said “wait a minute this is inconsistent with the Roman Catholic teachings” Because the Seventh day Adventist church agreed with this so they can come back and say “you know what, you have to keep Sunday”.
And you know what’s going to happen? They’ll do it brothers and sisters because they are no longer Protestants. The General conference, Ted Wilson, they are no longer Protestants.
Notice what the spirit of prophecy tells us here: “In the very time in which we live the Lord has called His people and has given them a message to bear. He has called them to expose the wickedness of the man of sin who has made the Sunday law a distinctive power, who has thought to change times and laws, and to oppress the people of God who stand firmly to honor Him by keeping the only true Sabbath, the Sabbath of creation, as holy unto the Lord.”—Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers, 118 (1903).
Let’s pause: so God has called us for such a time as this to do what? To expose the man of sin.
Can that Seventh day Adventist church do that there under those restrictions?
No brothers and sisters. One more time: they read the deeds. They also read the fine print. As a matter of fact the restriction agreement that comes with the deed, they are not even fine print. You can read them as fine as crystal because they made this very clear that was part of the agreement.
“Before you pay us that money, before you sign the deed, these are the restrictions. That’s what you can teach that’s what you cannot teach”
Does the restriction mean they are going to stop worshiping there on Sabbath? Well when the bishop comes and said “nope you have to do this on Sunday ”
Brothers and sisters let us continue this spirit of Protestantism because we are told that this must go on until Jesus comes. We are the true Protestants. Those who are doing the work in a self supported way not all of them. Now you have the false prophet among us who claim to be a self supported minister but we are talking about those who going to go by the Bible.
Not dreams and visions but the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy. Those are the individuals that the bible describe the dragon will make war with them because they keep the commandments of God and the faith and the testimony of Jesus Christ.
As the Bible tells us in Revelation 18:6. The Bible says, speaking of Babylon, speaking of God’s people, carrying the loud cry message. The final message for this time. Which is a message of mercy and love. The Bible says in Revelation 18:6 “Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.”
By proclaiming the loud cry message and God, brothers and sisters needs us at this moment in time as we can see we are living in the final hour of this earth history.
Reward Babylon by exalting Jesus Christ. Not only with the message for this time but also as verse 1 tells us by reflecting the glory, the light and character of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
