(and the host)
Dear Truth Seeker,
You wrote in the rest of your letter,
While i was in ..... i remained in prayer and was a witness to .... I taught on the prophecies, Agape Love, hell, the resurrection, marriage, etc. what ever i could tell them. The holy spirit i prayed to fill me every day and i prayed for them every day. They came to me for comfort and council; i've adopted them as my brothers and will continue with them either in prayer or in person. I told them that much (not all) that i'd learned was taught to me by the seventh day adventist message, which many of them told me they would pursue.
Much of what is taught in the message is truth and i believe that full-heartedly, yet God continues to reveal to me specific errors in your beliefs. These are subjects that I thank Him for revealing with His spirit. As i have time i will reveal them to you.
What you taught them is good. But what about our special message which they cannot get anywhere else? I refer to the teaching on the heavenly High Priest and His sanctuary. Thats what we were specifically raised up in 1844 to teach. The "cleansing" of the sanctuary AND the "downtreading" of the host of the church. Daniel 8:13-14. We should teach that without neglecting the others.
Then I heard one Saint speaking, and another saint said to that certain Saint which spoke, "How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?"
And He said to me, "Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."
He didnt mention the people of the church in His answer. So the message of the sanctuary goes out, but not yet that regarding the host!
A church normally has a specific item of truth (called "present truth"), to give to each generation during its existence. One generation of our church has given the message of the cleansing of the sanctuary in their way and now it's our turn to reveal the truth of the freeing of the host and their obtaining of the victory. The "book" of the revelation has been steadily opened (its pages are being turned) and we are close to the opening of the seventh seal. We live BETWEEN verses 10 and 11 of Revelation chapter 10 so we should look to the Spirit to teach us how to do our job. Of course, we still have chapter 11 to live through after that, but the giving of the message will help prepare us for it
I am with you on the subject of Yahweh and the Trinity. The latter as it is taught by the Protestant churches is just religious claptrap which they love. But then so is the version being touted by many in the Adventist church. To say that the Spirit of God does not exist except as a manifestation of the Father or the Son is also bogus. The three Persons are mentioned separately in the Scriptures from the first book to the last, and in between. Here are a few of the references.
In the beginning [the Son of] God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And THE SPIRIT OF GOD moved upon the face of the waters.
And Moses said unto him, "Envy you for my sake? Would God that all the LORD'S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put His Spirit upon them!"
You gave also Your good Spirit to instruct them, and withheld not Your manna from their mouth, and gave them water for their thirst.
Matthew 3:1617 All three in one verse!
And Jesus, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened to Him, and he [John] saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him: and lo a voice from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
They are not equals, for their position is explained very plainly. The "Son" is a title below that of "Father", and the "Spirit" is described as being "sent" which implies His lower rank. But enough on that subject!
I have attached an article entitled "Tabernacle Teachings" which may help you to understand the true Adventist position on the sanctuary services. Please let me know what you think of it.
Bye for now,
Unfortunately, this is the last of these "conversations" because Truth Seeker never answered this one and I don't chase people.
