About fate of those
Present Truth Believers when the top of Carmel withers

 
Introduction

We are now living in the time of the end, which is in the last end of the time of the end itself. Let no one think anymore that the time will go on and on without limit. The earth with all kinds of its calamities now befalling many parts of the world, is enough to show us that the earth is going to be more and more unsuitable for the habitation of men and the beasts.

As sinners of the earth ever since the fall of our first ancestors Adam and Eve in sin, we have to know that ever since year 31 in the past we have been fully redeemed by our own Creator with a price of an unimaginable value, which is of the life of the Son of God Himself. Therefore, with the accomplishment of the redemption ever since, we now as Present Truth believers of SDA Church should have understood that our status now have been changed into the so-called “the Children of God”, or the citizens of the kingdom of Heaven, who are to be identified as keepers of the Law of the Ten Commandments and all Its Rules of implementation in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. Revelation 12 : 17 ; 19 : 10.   

The SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, therefore, is not limited to only the message of the third angel of Revelation 14 by Mrs. Ellen G. White the prophet, but to The SPIRIT OF PROPHECY of Revelation 19 : 10, which comprises the message of the Spirit of Prophecy by Mrs. White and the Shepherd’s Rod message of Revelation 18 : 1 by Bro. Victor T. Houteff the prophet.   

The combination of those two messages by both the servants of the Lord is to enlighten the whole earth, beginning in our own Church of SDA. And with the enlightenment of the message in our midst we would have understood that when our turn comes for our cases to be investigated in the heavenly court of justice, then is the time of probation for all the Laodiceans to close. Every one of us will be tried, and this is the process of the purification of the Laodicean Church, before she could have been sent to the whole world to have accomplished the proclamation of the message of the Kingdom to all the inhabitants of the earth with power of the Spirit of the second Pentecost up to the close of probation in the heavenly sanctuary, which is before the second advent of Jesus in the air. This article is a continuation of the one entitled : “ORGANIZATION, THE PROBLEM OF LIFE OF DEATH FOR THE END TIME PEOPLE OF GOD.”

The first main problem
 to be revealed through the book of Revelation

The first main problem revealed from the book of Revelation is the “Message of Justification by Faith” which was opposed by the angel of the Church of Laodicea or the General Conference of SDA held in 1888 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. As the result of the opposition against the message the spiritual condition of the angel of the Church of Laodicea or the Organization of the General Conference of SDA fell so dramatically into a spiritual condition called “lukewarm.”  

That is the reason why did Jesus through His servant Mrs. Ellen G. White send us through the Review and Herald dated February 25, 1902 a special Call for a spiritual Revival and a spiritual Reformation.  

The Call was just realized later by Bro. Victor T. Houteff the servant of the Lord who came in 1929 several years after the death of Mrs. White. Due to the fact that even this latest Call was also rejected, and Bro. Houteff as the servant sent by the Lord Himself was disfellowshipped, then ever since 1935 according to the same Call for a spiritual reformation, the Organization of General Conference of SDA was then re-organized into the Organization of the General Association of Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas, USA. Thus it is that ever since the same year in 1935 the General Conference of SDA as the angel of the Church of Laodicea was then spewed out of Jesus’ mouth.  

Meanwhile through the same Call for a spiritual revival, we are all being led to the strife with all the power that God has given us to be among the 144.000 elected saints of God, prophesied by John the Revelator in the Revelation 14 : 1.   

Thus it is that spiritual revival would mean all the prophecies of the Old Testament, the book of Revelation and all the parables of Jesus in the New Testament should have been understood and obeyed. This is the only way for us to enter into fellowship of those the elected saints of God in the future. And all the prophecies of the Old Testament, the book of Revelation, and all the parables of Jesus in the New Testament should have been interpreted to meet the fulfillment of the prophetic word of prophet Amos when he said : “SURELY THE LORD GOD WILL DO NOTHING BUT HE REVEALETH HIS SECRETS UNTO HIS SERVANTS THE PROPHETS.” – AMOS 3 : 7. 

All Present Truth Believers
 of Davidian SDA should have been divided into t w o categories

John the Revelator ever said,
“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. …………These are they which were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. … And in their mouth was found no guile : for they are without fault before the throne of God.”Revelation 14 : 1, 4, 5.

The 144.000 elects of God should have come out of the Seventh-day Adventist Church only, because this is the only Church of Christ that was ever likened by Him in His parable of the Ten Virgins. Those 144.000 elects of God, therefore, should have come out of the five wise virgins only.  

From the fact, however, that among the five wise virgins themselves there are yet some of them having guile in their mouths, then as well as the five wise virgins should have been divided into two categorized people, the one with guile in their mouths on the one side and the other without guile in their mouths on the other side, then the Present Truth believers of Davidian SDA today should have been divided : all the candidates of the 144.000 elects of God on the one side and those Davidian SDA. with guile in their mouth on the other side.  

From the fact that during the leadership of Bro. Houteff The Mount Carmel Center and all the people affiliated with it were still in unity of faith. The purity of the message of the Rod and the Spirit of Prophecy were still kept tightly and maintained by the brethren. All the world would have witnessed by itself how the unity of faith and the purity of the message have been safely  maintained there.  

However in 1954, a year before the humble servant of the Lord died, he had written in the Symbolic Code, the official organ of Davidian SDA Headquarters of the time, among others the following thing here below :

“Now again, with even greater emphasis toward reaching the goal, Mount Carmel Center makes the following announcement to all faithful Davidians who will realize that this good news is perhaps nothing short of a sign. Mount Carmel Center by commencing to first sell its excess property, then the whole, is symbolically leading the way to the program that is outlined by the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy  ………   ” – The Symbolic Code Vol. 10, No. 1, page 4.  

In the time of Bro. Houteff the Mount Carmel Center had begun to sell a part of the land asset of the Organization. However up to 1955 when he died the Mount Carmel Center did not as yet sell all the asset of the Organization.  

However, in 1962, under the leadership of Mrs. Houteff as Vice President, the whole Mount Carmel Center or The General Association of Davidian SDA had been liquidated and sold to the Presbyterian Church, and then dissolved. 

Thus was the Presbyterian Church ever since in power over the whole Mount Carmel land for about 30 years up to 1991, wherein the whole asset has again been bought back by those who have named themselves by the General Association of Davidian SDA or the Mount Carmel Center in Waco. Texas up to now. Everyone who is truly honest and intelligent should have questioned : Is the re-establishment of Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas in 1991 truly for helping Jesus “to turn His hand upon the little ones“ as those prophesied in Zechariah 13 : 7, or just for representing the Enemy and those unsuspected foes -- professed friends of the gospel -- to deliver their knockout blows upon all those who affiliate with them ? Let us again read carefully the statement by Bro. Houteff here below :

“Everything that can be done against God’s message of today will be done with even a greater vengeance than was manifest against Heaven’s message in the days of Christ’s first advent, for the Devil knows that if he loses now, he loses forever --- that he is to have no other chance. Unparalleled, therefore, is the urgency that every eleventh-hour church member now quickly and solidly brace himself against the Enemy’s effort to deliver a knockout blow. We must be alert, too, to realize that the blow is to come from surprisingly unsuspected foes --- from professed friends of the gospel, who are no less pious than were the priests in Christ’s day. It is, moreover,  but to be expected that the Adversary will employ every agency possible to prevent the Lord from disclosing to view His now obscure 144.000 first fruit servants, who are to go gather in the second fruits (Revelation 7 : 9). The Enemy will try everything conceivable to confuse, becloud, and cover up the Truth, especially on the subject of the 144.000.” -- The White House Recruiter, p. 33.

The above statement issued by the servant of the Lord long before he died in 1955. There shall be two times of knockout blows delivered by the Enemy against the staunch followers of Bro. Houteff, who survived the death of their beloved leader ever since 1955. The first blow should have come right from the Enemy, the Old Serpent. But the second blow is to come from surprisingly unsuspected foes --- from professed friends of the gospel, who are no less pious than were the priests in Christ’s day.  

Due to the fact that the priests in Christ’s day were of the Sanhedrin Organization of that day, then the professed friends of the gospel would inevitably be the antitypical Sanhedrin of today. They were mentioned by Bro. Houteff as professed friends of the gospel, which means that they are also Davidian SDA workers and staunch followers of Bro. Houteff. That their identities might be clearer, let us first know the result of the first blow delivered by the Enemy as mentioned above. Here is the story:   

After the death of the servant of the Lord, Bro. Houteff, the leadership of Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, was then transferred to Mrs. Houteff as Vice President. Ever since that time the fall one after another had befallen the Mount Carmel Center of God, so that at long last in 1962   the whole assets of the Mount Carmel Center should have been sold to Presbyterian Church, who was in power of the whole land of the Mount Carmel location up to 1991. Mrs. Houteff herself was not long ever since became an apostate up to time she died.  

And ever since 1991 the Mount Carmel Center was successfully bought back by those who now have been invested with power over the whole assets of the Old Mount Carmel location. And since they regarded themselves as savior to have retrieved the Old Mount Carmel Center of the Lord in 1991, they therefore have revived the name of Mount Carmel Center or General Association of Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas, USA up to the close of probation for the Laodicean in the future.  

Thus may it be clear now that after Mrs. Houteff and her fellow workers were fallen through the knockout blows delivered on them by the Enemy, and after the Mount Carmel Center of the Lord was lost into the power of the Enemy, then ever since that time, the following statement of warning by Bro. Houteff will begin to be fulfilled when he said : We must be alert, too, to realize that the blow is to come from surprisingly unsuspected foes --- from professed friends of the gospel, who are no less pious than were the priests in Christ’s day.

We must now be alert too, because they are surprisingly unsuspected foes, because they are professed friends of the same gospel, who are also the followers of Bro. Houteff and his message of the Rod. They even are now    leading at the Headquarters of the Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, USA. up to the close of probation for all the Laodiceans.in the future.  

Since this warning is applying more in force today than ever before, let us be alert too that those who are now dominating the Mount Carmel Center in Texas have several identities for us to know One of the identities is that they are no less pious than were the priests in Christ’s day, and that is the narrow minded fanaticism or the narrow minded fundamentalism. All these will be identified in several facts as follows :      

  1. The ministers and teachers are not allowed to write too much, so that they will not easily fall into sin of adding to or subtracting from the message as of those stipulated in Revelation 22 : 18, 19.
  2. And when there is something to write, the draft or the manuscript of those written must first won the approval of the Biblical Research Committee.  All the publications of the Rod message must be printed in small books according to the size and format of the original copy of the books.  
  3. Teachers and ministers are not allowed to teach their message by the use of chart, symbols, and representations of their own made. They are allowed to use only those provided by Bro. Houteff.  
  4. The present leadership in Waco, Texas, do not acknowledge the so-called the divinely appointed ministers and teachers, who have been dedicated to the work without laying on of hand. Therefore, they  have intentionally omitted the word of God through Mrs. White when she said :

“God will send forth into His vineyard (the Laodicean Church) many who have not been dedicated to the ministry by the laying on of hands.” -- The Acts of the Apostles, p. 110. (In brackets added)

After the death of Bro. Houteff,
all his followers would have been scattered
  (Zechariah 13 : 6, 7)

After the death of the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff in 1955, all his followers have then established several Headquarters of General Association of Davidian SDA in several states in America out side the original location of the Mount Carmel in Waco, Texas. USA. Those Headquarters are as follows :

a.    General Association of Davidian SDA in Salem, South Caroline
b.    General Association of Davidian SDA  in Elk, Texas
c.    General Association of Davidian SDA in Mountain dale New York     
d.    General Association of Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas.
e.    And others

Each of those Mount Carmel Centers mentioned above has named itself : The General Association of Davidian SDA, or The Mount Carmel Center, that consists of more Associations of Davidian SDA under its leadership.

All of them ever since the beginning were honest and true, that they through their new establishment of the Mount Carmel Center, they may continue the work left behind by the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff after his death. Nevertheless, the good and honest intentions are not enough to please the Lord, because ever since a long time before the Lord God through His servant Zechariah the prophet has ever prophesied for  us now  living in this time of the end in the following words :

“Awake, O sword against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts : smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered : and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. --- Zechariah 13 :  7.

That is, after the death of the servant of the Lord, Bro. Houteff, as their shepherd, then the Lord God Himself would have turned His hand upon the little ones. This means that the Lord God would have taken the rein in His own hand, and no more through His Organization. Since there are two peoples here to identify : first the greater ones of those Mount Carmel Centers mentioned above on the one side, and then the little ones of those smaller associations of Davidian SDA, who are now affiliated with those General Associations of Davidian SDA mentioned above, then we may be sure that the Lord God would have nothing more to do with the greater ones of those Mount Carmel Centers mentioned above.  

But the problem now is how is the Lord to carry out His purpose to consolidate all the associations of Davidian SDA in the whole world of Laodicea today ? To this end the Lord God Himself through His servant Mrs. White had ever before told us in the following  words :

“It is a fatal mistake to suppose that the work of soul saving depends alone upon the ministry (organization) ………. God will send forth into His vineyard many who have not been dedicated to the ministry by the laying on of hands.” -- The Acts of the Apostles, p. 110. (In brackets added).

And what are they to do ?  To this end Bro. Houteff said :

“………….. as teachers of the Shepherd’s Rod (the official publications of the Davidian SDA Associations) teach only in the light of the Rod those passages which in one way or another need to be interpreted. Thus only will all Present Truth believers ever become of the same mind, seeing eye to eye, and speaking the same things. (1 Cor. 1 : 10; 1 Peter 3 : 8 ; Isa. 52 : 8).”Fundamental Beliefs of the Davidian SDA. p. 27.  

Thus may it be clear now, that after the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff died, then the divinely appointed teachers and ministers of the Lord, who are not at all recognized by the Organizations of Mount Carmel Centers mentioned above, they would have taken the burden to continue the proclamation of the Eleventh-Hour Call to those laymen in the churches of Seventh-day Adventists, until all the elected saints of the Lord would have been seeing eye to eye, having the same mind, and speaking the same things. Thus are those 144.000 elected saints of God to emerge on the stage of history in the near future. And then comes the close of probation for all the Laodiceans of this time of the end. 

According to those prophesied,
 Present Truth believers must be found in two
 separate divisions

The servant of the Lord Mrs. White said :  

“God will arouse His people; if other means fail, heresies will come in among them, which will s i f t them, separating the c h a f f (not tares) from the w h e a t. The Lord calls upon all who believe His word to awake out of sleep. Precious light has come, appropriate for this time. It is Bible truth, showing the perils that are right upon us. This light should lead us to a diligent study of the Scriptures and a most critical examination of the positions which we hold.” – 5 Testimonies for the Church, pp. 707 – 708. (In brackets added)

“His people” mentioned by Mrs. White above are none other than the present truth believers of Davidian SDA only. In Revelation 14 : 4 and 5 they were represented by the five wise virgins of the parable of Jesus concerning the Kingdom of Heaven that is likened to the ten virgins. However, since within the five wise virgins themselves, there are yet to be found also those with guile in their mouths, then the five wise virgins of the parable must unavoidably be again divided into two categorized peoples, that is, the candidates of the 144.000 elected saints of God on the one side, and those represented by the wise virgins with guile in their mouths on the other side. In her statement above Mrs. White did divide them into two peoples : the wheat categorized people of the 144.000 elected saints on the one side, and the chaff categorized ones of those virgins with guile in their mouths on the other side.  

Thus it is as those prophesied by prophet Zechariah in Zechariah 13 : 7. That after the death of the servant of the Lord in 1955 up to the deliverance of the 144.000 elected saints of God to the Palestine in the future, all Davidian SDA believers would have been divided into only two categorized peoples : Those little ones of the smaller associations of Davidian SDA scattered in many places in Laodicea on the one side, and those greater ones of the Mount Carmel Centers we have mentioned above in the USA on the other side.    

Those upon whom the Lord should have turned His hand up to now, should unavoidably be the candidates of the 144.000 saints in the future. Whereas    those of the Mount Carmel Centers in USA and their diehard followers in all the world would have unavoidably to be categorized into the wise virgins with guile in their mouths.  

Those with guile in their mouths would have no more power to recognize the divinely appointed teachers and ministers of those mentioned by Bro. Houteff in The Fundamental Beliefs of Davidian SDA, p. 27. And this is the reason why the identities of those having the same mind, seeing eye to eye, and speaking the same things, could no more be found in their midst. And this is the fact that the 144.000 elected saints of God would never more be found there in their midst.

Why are we truly in need of the divinely
 appointed teachers and ministers in this time of the end ?

The servant of the Lord Mrs. White said :

“God has a church, and she has a divinely appointed ministry. ‘And He gave some apostles; and some, prophets; and some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ …………..etc. “– Testimonies to Ministers, p. 52.

“It is a fatal mistake to suppose that the work of soul saving depends alone upon the ministry (organization) ………. God will send forth into His vineyard many who have not been dedicated to the ministry by the laying on of hands.” -- The Acts of the Apostles, p. 110. (In brackets added).

Let us observe the two statements above carefully. Ministers of the angel of the Laodicean Church have been spewed out of Jesus’ mouth. And in regard to the ministers of those now leading at the Mount Carmel Center in Texas, the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff has ever before warned us in the following words : “We must be alert, too, to realize that the blow is to come from surprisingly unsuspected foes --- from professed friends of the gospel, who are no less pious than were the priests in Christ’s day.”

Therefore, we are to know that the only ministers trustable for us to hear   at this time, are those divinely appointed ministers, who have been dedicated to the ministry without the laying on of hands. They will be identified through their teachings of the message, either through writings on the internet or through the media of reading materials of any kind and etc.

We must be able to see the difference between the divinely appointed ministers and teachers on the one side, and the Organization  appointed ministers and teachers on the other side. Let us understand, therefore, that all along the time of harvesting in the vineyard in this time, the servant of the Lord has ever said :

“God will send forth into His vineyard many who have not been dedicated to the ministry by the laying on of hands.” -- The Acts of the Apostles, p. 110. (In brackets added).   

And after the death of Bro. Houteff, his following statements here below will then apply in force :

“………….. as teachers of the Shepherd’s Rod (the official publications of the Davidian SDA Associations) teach only in the light of the Rod those passages which in one way or another need to be interpreted. Thus only will all Present Truth believers ever become of the same mind, seeing eye to eye, and speaking the same things. (1 Cor. 1 : 10; 1 Peter 3 : 8 ; Isa. 52 : 8).”Fundamental Beliefs of the Davidian SDA. p. 27.  

Thus only will the 144.000 elected saints of God from among all the Laodiceans of this time of the end, emerge on the stage of history. This is the result of painstaking effort of those teachers and ministers of the Shepherd’s Rod, who have been appointed to the work without the laying on of hands.

In the pictorial chart of the prophecy of Zechariah chapter 4, the position and task of those divinely appointed ministers and teachers could be seen as follows  :

Bro. Houteff’ statements above will be fully fulfilled after he died.  There are passages of the message of the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY in the golden bowl of the pictorial prophecy of Zechariah chapter 4 that are yet to be interpreted further by the divinely appointed teachers and ministers. Not a few of the passages in the golden bowl that should be interpreted further after the death of Mrs. White and Bro. Houteff. However, the teachers and ministers are no more allowed to make any interpretation of the Bible, because those works have been accomplished by the end time prophets during their life time.      

Thus it is clear, that after Bro. Houteff as  messenger of the message of the Eleventh-hour Call died in 1955, he would then ever since be succeeded by the divinely appointed teachers and ministers, even up to the time when the probation closes in the heavenly sanctuary. However, since their ordination to the job were not done by the laying on of hands before the people, no single Organization of Mount Carmel Center in America and their people would be willing to recognize them. And thus is the reason why those who are now leading at the Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, fail to recognize them.  And the consequence is that the Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas will never have the capacity to make their people seeing eye to eye, having the same mind, and speaking the same things. That the 144.000 elected saints of God would never be found there in their midst.

Therefore, although they may profess themselves to be wise virgins and candidates of the 144.000 elected saints of God, who are now proclaiming the message of the Eleventh-hour Call in Laodicea, they will be deemed just the wise virgins with guile in their mouths. This is just the sin prohibited in Revelation 22 : 18, 19. And all the sins are the result of acts of fabrication where they have now been implicated in.  

Attention ! To say that the prophetic words of Zechariah 13 : 6, 7 have ever been fulfilled with Jesus’ personality in Palestine, could be justified. But to say that the prophetic words of Zechariah 13 : 6, and 7 will no more apply now, whereas the other verses of the same chapter are now applying, this is indeed a falsehood of a blatant act of fabrication.  

The way how the Lord calls out
 His 144.000 elected saints from among the wise virgins

Very early beforehand the servant of the Lord Mrs. Ellen G. White was inspired to say as follows :

“God will arouse His people; if other means fail, heresies will come in among them, which will s i f t them, separating the c h a f f (not tares) from the w h e a t. The Lord calls upon all who believe His word to awake out of sleep. Precious light has come, appropriate for this time. It is Bible truth, showing the perils that are right upon us. This light should lead us to a diligent study of the Scriptures and a most critical examination of the positions which we hold.”5 Testimonies for the Church, pp. 707 – 708. (In brackets added)

Mrs. White was truly inspired long beforehand to tell us of those presented above. Even long before Bro. Houteff later came with his Shepherd’s Rod message. This should be understood, because at the time she uttered the statement the Laodicean Church as the kingdom of Heaven that was likened by Jesus to the ten virgins in one of His parables, was not as yet divided. Even was it not as yet found in her mind that the Davidian SDA should have been divided again into those of wheat categorized ones on the on side and those of chaff categorized ones on the other side. Miracle indeed, is not it ?  

We have to understand, therefore, that those who are to be aroused by the Lord are none other than the present truth believers who survived the death of Bro. Victor T. Houteff in 1955 up to now. They are now scattered in several places in Laodicea, and are affiliated with several Mount Carmel Centers in America. One of those Mount Carmel Centers is located in Waco, Texas, the permanent location of the Mount Carmel which was found in the prophecy, according to Bro. Houteff. Most of the present truth believers in Indonesia affiliated with them as Headquarters of Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas, USA. And even I myself was ever one of them. I had to withdraw myself from them due to split of opinion in several doctrinal subjects. Thus may it be understood that the statement in the prophecy of Zechariah 13 : 7, “Awake, O sword against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts : smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered : and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. --- Zechariah 13 :  7.

…….has been also fulfilled in Indonesia. It means, that after the death of Bro. Houteff in 1955, then ever since the Lord Jesus Himself would have taken the rein in His own hands. He would then turn His leading hands away from those greater ones of the Mount Carmel Centers in USA. And then turn His hands upon us the little ones, the associations of Davidian SDA, who are now scattered in many places in Laodicea.  

We must be sure that the above statements by Mrs. White could not fail. We will have witnessed the fulfillment of those statements one after another as follows : 

(a) the emergence of the divinely appointed teachers and ministers  without the laying on of hands in several associations of Davidian SDA of “the little ones” in the world.
(b) they should have interpreted further those passages of the message in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, in the golden bowl of Zechariah chapter 4, specifically those passages which in one way or another need to be interpreted further after the death of the servant of the Lord in 1955.  
(c) they even are to interpret all passages of the SPIRIT PROPHECY until Mrs. White’s statement in the Early Writings, p. 277 to be completely fulfilled, that the combination of the message of the angel of Revelation 18 : 1 with the third angel message of Revelation 14 into the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY of Revelation 19 : 10 will truly enlighten the whole earth. Then is to be fulfilled  the prophetic word by prophet Isaiah when he said :  

“Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of His people, and healeth the stroke of their wounds.” – Isaiah 30 : 26.

You Readers are kindly requested to read for yourselves the above statement by prophet Isaiah and its interpretation in the Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 32.

That is, before the close of probation for all the Laodiceans in the future, the whole problems of those things found in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY of the golden bowl would have been revealed through the divinely appointed teachers and ministers.             

(d) then will come the heresies among the present truth believers in all Davidian. And then every one of us will be sifted. To that end let us be on alert, because maybe through the divinely appointed teachers and ministers who are to come offering us with the passages of the message in the golden bowl, that causes the great controversies in our midst. But out from the sifting we will have a people that could be identified from their seeing eye to eye, and from their having the same mind, and from their ability to speak the same things. And this is the identity of the 144.000 elected saints of God, who are to grow in number bit by bit up to a certain time, when suddenly the probation is to close for good and for ever. 

Brother, the Lord God is now doing everything possible through His divinely appointed agencies to call us out from among those fellow Davidians who are now affiliated with the man-made Organizations of Mount Carmel Centers in America. Though all of them have been established according to the rules stipulated in the Leviticus of the Davidian SDA, we have been informed through the unerring prophecy of Zechariah 13 : 7 that the Lord will no more recognize them as His people. After the death of the servant of the Lord in 1955, the Lord God would have turned His hand upon the little ones, and no more upon the greater ones of those now leading in the Mount Carmel Centers in America. 

When the top of Carmel shall wither 

When the top of Carmel shall wither in the future, then is the time of probation to close for good for all Seventh-day Adventists of the Laodicean Church in this time of the end. The proclamation of the message of the Eleventh-hour Call by those who professed themselves to be survivors of Bro. Houteff ‘s Organization of Mount Carmel Center and his message of the Eleventh-hour Call  would also come to the end.

The only people survived at that glorious moment in the future will be none other than the 144.000 elected saint of God. Let us read further the explanation given us by the servant of the Lord here below : 

Section One  :

“It might be interesting to Elder G. to know that the naming of our “camp” “Mt. Carmel Center” came about in the same way as the naming of our publications “The Shepherd’s Rod, for we did not know before hand that it was in prophecy until after our attention was called to Micah 7 : 14 and Amos 1 : 2. In the prophecy of Amos we read :   

“The Lord will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.” --- Amos 1 : 2.  

“With a few comments on the above scripture, any Bible student will recognize at a glance that it applies at the time of the end, as explained by the gospel prophet :  “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills, ……..for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” (Isa. 2 : 2, 3), which the language of Amos is, ‘Utter his voice from Jerusalem.’ Looking to this same time Joel put it as follows : “And the Lord shall utter His voice before His army : for His camp is very great : for He is strong that executeth His word : for the day of the Lord is great and terrible; and who can abide it ?”  (Joel 2 : 11).

“As Amos says, “The habitations of the shepherds shall mourn,” it is obvious that Amos’ prophecy is yet future, for the word ‘habitations’ places is in the plural form, which cannot be applied to one shepherd’s habitation (denomination) but to all that be in existence at that time. The term ‘shepherds’ means, as understood, the same as the ‘ancient men which were before the house’ --- the ministers. Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, p. 211. Note that the shepherds are not themselves to mourn but their habitations (their houses); that is, the membership of their Churches, which fact reveals that it will be thus at the time when the sleeping multitudes in the churches awake from their spiritual insensibility and find that the shepherds whom they implicitly trusted for their salvation and deceived all those who followed them.

“The prophet Jeremiah in the following words explains that this wailing by those who are thus deceived will be at the close of probation. For they shall say “the harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.’ (Jer. 8 : 20). That is, after the harvest, the time in which they could have been saved, they will realize that the probationary time has closed.  Then ‘the habitations of the shepherd shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.” -- The Symbolic Code, vol. 11, No. 12, pp. 30, 31.  

Bro. Houteff on the first section above was speaking about the Mount Carmel Center or General Association of Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas. when the Top of Carmel shall wither in the future. He said that the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn. The shepherds as owners of the habitations are t h e  s a m e  a s the ancient men which were before the house --- the ministers of SDA.CHURCH -- Testimonies, vol. 5, p. 211. And the habitations of the shepherds represent membership of the churches or membership of the associations of Davidian SDA. under their care.  

The habitations of the shepherd after being convinced that the probation has closed and they are not as yet saved, they will then mourn their loss to the shepherds, whom they blame for having deceived them for so long time. The shepherds are themselves not to mourn, because whom are they to blame ? Thus will the shepherds who are now leading at the Mount Carmel Center in Texas, will then be reviled by all those who are up to now affiliated with them at the Headquarters in Texas. 

   Section two :

In the same organ of the Symbolic Code Vol. 11, No. 12, p. 33 the servant of the Lord again said :   

“Thus shall the top of Carmel wither, and those who do not take heed to the word :  “Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, at length will be alarmed that their opportunity for accepting the truth has slipped away. Then in their hasty, frenzied effort to acquaint themselves with present truth which went forth from the top of Carmel, to their surprise they shall find that Carmel has finished its work, its inhabitants removed, and probation closed, at which time the inhabitants of “Carmel” can but repeat, ‘the harvest is past, the summer is ended, and w e  h a v e  n o t h i n g   m o r e   f o r   y o u.  --- The Symbolic Code, Vol. 11, No. 12, p. 33.

The inhabitants of Carmel mentioned above will be none other than the 144.000 saints of God. They are to be found scattered in many places in Laodicea in all the world. When the top of Carmel shall wither, they are the people very much sought after, by those who have just found themselves lost, for the harvest is past and the summer has ended and they are not as yet saved.  

Since the top of Carmel is very close related to the message of the Shepherd’s Rod, which has been proclaimed by the present truth believers all over the world through literatures, internet etc., then when the number 144.000 of all saints of God is successfully reached, at the same time the Top of Carmel shall wither. The Top of Carmel shall wither for having accomplished its work. Then probation is to close for all the Laodiceans for good and for ever.

C o n c l u d e d 

Due to the fact that there are only two contradictive Davidianisms in the world today, let us be able to identify each of them respectively. That the Organization of Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, USA, today is no more the re-organized body of the General Conference of SDA. The re-organized body of the General Conference of SDA, which is the General Association of Davidian SDA with Bro. Houteff as its founder has accomplished its work when the servant of the Lord died in 1955.

The Organization of Presbyterian Church that has ever taken over the Mount Carmel Center from Mrs. Houteff and her associates for about 30 years up to 1991 could no more be deemed the reorganized body of the General Conference of SDA. Let alone the General Association of Davidian SDA or Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, today.

If the main objective of the re-organizing the General Conference of SDA into the General Association of Davidian SDA or the Mount Carmel center is specifically for accommodating all present truth believers in the world up to the close of probation, why did the Lord let His re-organized body of the General Conference of SDA fall into the hands of the Presbyterian Church?  Why was the Lord so weak against the Enemy when he delivered his knockout blow against Vice President Mrs. Houteff and her associates after the death of the servant of the Lord in 1955 ?

The same question may also arise, why did the Lord speak through prophet  Zechariah 13 : 7 : “Awake, O sword against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts : smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered : and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. ---  Zechariah 13 :  7. ??

And why did the Lord speak through Mrs. White telling us in the following words :  

“Let me tell you that the Lord will work in this last work in a manner very much out of the common order of things, and in a way that will be contrary to any human planning. There will be those among u s who will always want to control the work of God, to dictate even what movements shall be made when the work goes forward under the direction of the angel who joins the third angel in the message to be given to the world. God will use ways and means by which it will be seen that He is taking the reins in His own hands.“ --- Testimonies to Ministers, p. 300.  ??

This statement by Mrs. White is indeed a miraculous inspired statement. You will see that the statement applies just now, not during her life time nor in the time of Bro. Houteff in Waco, Texas, but just after he died in 1955 up to this very moment. We are now living in the time of this last work, when the angel (of Revelation 18 : 1) joins the third angel in the message of THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY of Revelation 19 : 10.

If through prophet Zechariah the Lord said that He will turn His hand upon the little ones, then through Mrs. White she said that He is taking the reins in His own hands. Are you still doubting ?  The Lord is now taking the reins  in His own hands to lead all of us up to the close of probation through His own divinely appointed teachers and ministers, who have been appointed to the work without the laying on of hands.  

Dear Readers, may the Lord bless you all to always remember the word of the servant of the Lord long before he died, when he said :  

We must be alert, too, to realize that the blow is to come from surprisingly unsuspected foes --- from professed friends of the gospel, who are no less pious than were the priests in Christ’s day. It is, moreover, but to be expected that the Adversary will employ every agency possible to prevent the Lord from disclosing to view His now obscure 144.000 first fruit servants, who are to go gather in the second fruits (Revelation 7 : 9). The Enemy will try everything conceivable to confuse, becloud, and cover up the Truth, especially on the subject of the 144.000.” -- The White House Recruiter, p. 33.

We must realize that the knockout blow is to come from an antitypical Sanhedrin of today, from professed friends of the gospel who are none other than those who are now dominating the Mount Carmel Center in Texas up to the time when the Top of Carmel shall wither.
