LOOKING FOR THE TRUE WORSHIP IN THIS END TIME

“True religion means living the word in your practical life. Your profession is not of any value without the practical doing of the word.” Testimonies to Ministers, p. 127.

People generally think that seeking the true religion is the same as seeking a great CHURCH, whose members are harmonious and peaceful, and found in many parts of the world, and whose members are well known for their outstanding acts of love. However, from the various explanations in the articles that have been presented before you, it can be realized that true religion depends very much on the completeness of the Truth it has. It is precisely because of the completeness of the Truth in it that all the people of God who believe in the Truth will continue to be persecuted by their own brothers and sisters in the same church.

We should understand that although the Ten Commandments as Basic Law have not changed since the beginning of the history of the world, the rules for their implementation have changed constantly, both in decreasing and increasing manner until the end of the present world. Sin = transgression of Law. True religion is to avoid unlawful acts by observing all the rules of implementation of the Ten Commandments. That is what Moses meant in his writing in Deuteronomy 29:29.

Since we are now in the last days, all the rules for the implementation of the Ten Commandments cannot be incomplete at this time. The entire rule of implementation is now known as the SPIRIT of PROPHECY, which is a series of books of inspiration that accompany the Bible. Since the prophetic Spirit is known only in the CHURCH of the Laodicea, the only true worship at the end of the world today will be found only in this CHURCH. Only here can we be religious properly, that is, to obey the Ten Commandments correctly according to the various rules of their implementation available in the SPIRIT of PROPHECY. Nevertheless, Jesus had warned as follows:

“BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH ARE

PERSECUTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS”

MATTHEW 5 : 10

Because the Holy Spirit is also the completeness of the Truth, hence God’s people in the Church will be persecuted. Thus, the CHURCH of the Laodicea will be divided into two classes only, the class who will be a prosecutor on the one hand, and their other class who will experience the persecution. This situation will continue until the great and terrible day of the Lord to come, which is the fulfillment of the prophecy of Ezekiel 9. This condition deserves careful observation as evidence of the existence of the SPIRIT of PROPHECY as the TRUTH in our churches. And this condition is to fulfill the prophecy:

“Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed”. Isaiah 66:5

The above words of the prophet Isaiah are part of Isaiah’s prophecy in chapter 66 which will only take effect in Laodicea, Seventh Day Adventist church in the last days. Because it is now proven that those words involved the angels of the Laodicea (pastors) and all their faithful followers, who have cast out (dismissed from the congregation) its members who profess the SPIRIT of PROPHECY “said” that God is glorified. Still, instead, the Lord will one day appear to those who are cash out, and the pastors and all their faithful followers will be one day ashamed. That is what was prophesied.

Beware, although there is still complete peace maintained in many Christian CHURCHES today, they prove that they are indeed left in partial darkness because the Truth of the SPIRIT of PROPHETIC is no longer in their CHURCHES. The truth of the prophecy is only in the last church of the Lord God, the Laodicean, so it is in this last church that the prophecies of the prophets will be fulfilled. Mrs. White wrote it as follows:

“When a message comes in the name of the Lord to His people, no one may excuse himself from an investigation of its claims. No one can afford to stand back in an attitude of indifference and self-confidence and say: “I know what is truth. I am satisfied with my position. I have set my stakes, and I will not be moved away from my position, whatever may come. I will not listen to the message of this messenger; for I know that it cannot be truth.” It is from pursuing this very course that the popular churches were left in partial darkness, and that is why the messages of heaven have not reached them.”Counsels on Sabbath School Work, p. 28.

These famous churches refer to the Protestant church of Martin Luther, the Presbyterian church of John Knox, the Methodist church of John Wesley, the Baptist church of Alexander Campbell, and the First-day Adventist church of William Miller, along with all the new religious sects that emerged later from those churches in the last days. During the Papal oppression of Roman Catholicism, from the 500s to the 1500s at the beginning of Luther’s Protestant Reformation, the Bible as a “Light of the World” was declared a forbidden book. That was the Dark Ages of Religion over the past thousand years, which has been a black sheet of the history of the New Testament.

After Martin Luther rediscovered a Bible, it was he who pioneered the first Protestant Reformation movement with his famous doctrinal, “The righteous will live by faith.” Armed with a Bible, which was only understood to be limited to ‘the righteous will live by faith’, Martin Luther and his followers succeeded in overthrowing the power of the Pope and his Roman Catholic rulers. In his book D’Aubigne’, b. 9 Luther says:

I will preach, discuss, and write; but I will constrain none, for faith is a voluntary act. See what I have done. I stood up against the pope, indulgences, and papists, but without violence or tumult. I put forward God’s word; I preached and wrote — this was all I did. And yet while I was asleep, … the word that I had preached overthrew popery so that neither prince nor emperor has done it so much harm. And yet I did nothing; the word alone did all.” — Ibid.,b. 9, chapter 8. — (The Great Controversy, p. 190.)

However, as an ordinary man with various limitations, Luther’s movement was only 16 years. He was then followed by subsequent reformers until Victor T. Houteff with the main doctrine of Shepherd’s Rod in 1929. One doctrine complements the other which has formed in these last days in the SPIRIT of Prophecy.

The Bible as the rules of the implementation of the Ten Commandments will continue to develop until the end of time. Each time the rejection of any new truth will result in darkness for the people concerned. As a result of all their rejection, all Christian CHURCHES at the end of the world are now in partial darkness. This circumstance fulfilled the prophecy in Isaiah 4:1 “And in that day seven women shall hold on to a man, saying, we shall eat our own bread, and put on our own garments; Only allow us to be called by your name, to cast off all our woes.” All these CHURCHES end up holding on to Christ only to be called by His name: “Christian”, to cover up their woes.

Partial darkness = Partial light. This proves that in fact, the Christian CHURCHES outside are not completely dark spiritually because only the SPIRIT of PROPHECY that they do not have. However, since not all the rules of implementation of the Ten Commandments were known, it was no longer possible for them to obey the entirety of the Ten Commandments perfectly. As a result, not a few of them were involved in various transgressions of the law, which he no longer realized as a sin. And this is an unforgivable sin because the CHURCHES deliberately continue to reject all Truth to this day.

After the last CHURCH, the Laodicea also rejected the SPIRIT of PROPHECY offered to them in 1929, since 1935 it has spit out from the mouth of Jesus to this day. From the SPIRIT of PROPHECY, it can be known, that ‘’The figure of spewing out of His mouth means that He cannot offer up your prayers or your expressions of love to God. He cannot endorse your teaching of His word or your spiritual work in anywise. He cannot present your religious exercises with the request that grace be given you.’ – 6 Testimonies, p. 408.

 

The church of Laodicea in Revelation 3:14 is symbolized by the angel of the church. The spit out of the CHURCH was meant for the angels of the Laodicean and all its faithful followers from within the Laodicean. In Isaiah 4:1, this last CHURCH has also been symbolized by one of the seven women, women who hold unto Christ just for His name only, so that she may also be called “Christian”.

Although all these churches no longer have the divine blessing to lead His people in the end of the present world, their existence still stands majestically. They even continue to promote themselves in the representation of the Kingdom of heaven and its Righteousness to this day, even though Jesus has affirmed: “Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness’(from the PROPHETIC SPIRIT)  because they are the owners of (the Laodicean Congregation which represents) the Kingdom of heaven (at the end of this present world).”– Matthew 5: 10 (In the bracket is from the author)

BLESSED IS HE WHO READS

AND

THOSE WHO HEAR

Because of the Truth, God’s people are persecuted; and because of this persecution, his ownership of the Laodicea as part of the Kingdom of heaven on earth has been taken away from him. This is why it is no longer possible for all the Truth of the SPIRIT of PROPHECY to come from the pulpits of churches. The SPIRIT of PROPHECY as the Testimony of Jesus Christ has been offered free of charge to anyone who hungered and thirsted for truth by His people in the form of books, tracts, and various other means.

As soon as the prophets of the New Testament finished interpreting the entire Bible into the SPIRIT of PROPHECY in the Laodicean church, John the Revelator’s words have been in effect ever since: “Blessed is he the readeth, and they that hear…..” Revelation 1:3

The word, “Blessed,” by John the Revelator above applies to us, even to everyone who will use all the words of prophecy for his happiness now and in the future. This is clearly understood because, through the angel Gabriel, the Lord God has said: “……..all the prophetic words (of Daniel) are sealed until the end of time. (Only in the last days after all the prophecies have been revealed) Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.” — Daniel 12:10. (In bracket is from author) Blessed are you and I because we will be purified and made white, even though we are still being tempted and persecuted.

STRIVE TO MAINTAIN STATUS

AS A KINGDOM OF HEAVEN CITIZEN

 

The first time a person acquires citizenship of the Kingdom of heaven is from the moment he or she is baptized. This means that by then he must first fully repent. Thus, he will have mastered and obeyed all the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY as the rules of implementation of the Ten Commandments. The Servant of God wrote it as follows:

“Christ has made baptism as a sign of entrance to His spiritual kingdom. He has made this a positive condition with which all must comply who wish to be acknowledged as under the authority of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Before man can find a home in the church, before passing the threshold of God’s spiritual kingdom, he is to receive the impress of the divine name,The Lord our Righteousness.” — Jeremiah 23:6

 

Baptism is a most solemn renunciation of the world. Those who are baptized in the threefold name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, at the very entrance of their Christian life declare publicly that they have forsaken the service of Satan and have become members of the royal family, children of the heavenly King. They have obeyed the command: “Come out from among them, and be ye separate, … and touch not the unclean thing.” And to them is fulfilled the promise: “I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:17, 18. — 6 Testimonies, p. 91.

 

However, because we are still alive and living in this sinful world, none of us can continue to survive in his sinless condition. That is also why, the prophet Solomon said: “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.”Proverbs 24:16.

That is, no matter how many times God’s people fall into sin, they will repent again, henceforth to maintain their status as citizens of the Kingdom. This proves that the necessity to understand and obey all the Ten Commandments and the Spirit of Prophecy will be binding long before we submit ourselves to baptism.

ANTICIPATING THE UPCOMING

OF END-TIME EVENTS

By holding on to the Testimony of Jesus Christ called the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, God’s people will be able to anticipate one event after another according to their respective prophecies. Therefore, “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.” Ephesians 4:14

 

Many church leaders and members are now prophesying according to their own versions, swiftly presenting people with a selection of prophecies, complete with interpretations of their own creation. They did not realize it, “that none of the prophecies of the scriptures came from one’s own mind. For that prophecy in the past did not come by the will of man; but the saints of God have spoken as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”2 Peter 1: 20, 21.

Since all these prophecies are products of the Holy Spirit, their interpretation must also come through the same Spirit, who will move God’s saints, His prophets, to present them to us. This should be understandable, because “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7. Thus, the entire prophecy in the Bible and other secrets have been provided in the last days in one source only, the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY.  And this too will be found only in the Laodicean church, the last church of the Lord God in the history of the world.

It is from the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY that we will know that we are now in the harvest or sealing period of those 144,000 people. The sealing period has been started since 1930 and is coming to an end. In the end, it will be only 144,000 of us living today be sealed. Only 144,000 will be the first fruits of the first harvest in the Laodicean church.

THE UPCOMING

END TIME EVENTS

 

[1] Only after being sealed, they are faced with great tribulation, the culmination of the trials. That great tribulation was foretold in Daniel 12:1. But all these will be spared because they have obtained the sign of release on their foreheads, which is the seal of 144,000.

[2] Then they were taken to Palestine to join Jesus as the Lamb of God to inaugurate the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven on Mount Zion, in Jerusalem. Such is the fulfillment of John’s words in Revelation 14:1. Therefore all our prayers so far would be answered all: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven…!” — Matthew 6: 9 – 10.

[3] What then is the fate of others who do not receive a seal? The citizens of the Kingdom who were not elected into the company of 144,000 will not perish, but they will be taken to death, to be resurrected at the resurrection of Daniel 12:2. But all the other Laodiceans who do not retain their status as citizens of the Kingdom until the time of the sealing will be slaughtered as prophesied in Ezekiel 9, Isaiah 66:16 and Malachi 3:2, 3.

[4] Those 144,000 who are already in Jerusalem, Palestine, will then be endowed with the Holy Spirit of Later Rain to send them out all over the world preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom with great power. The Holy Spirit of Later Rain will also be poured upon all the citizens of the Kingdom who rise out of their graves, for they too will join in their duties once again. For this reason, the servant of God says: Your work, my work, will not cease with this life. For a little while we may rest in the grave, but, when the call comes, we shall, in the kingdom of God, take up our work once more.” Testimonies, vol. 7, p. 17.

[5] It is under the great power of the Holy Spirit of Later Rain that the work of saving mankind throughout the world will be completed in the shortest possible time, and then a whole long period of repentance for mankind on earth will end. The Servant of God says: “The outpouring of the Spirit in the days of the apostles was “the former rain,” and glorious was the result. But the latter rain will be more abundant” — Testimony Treasures, vol. 3, p. 211.

If in the past, apostles under the power of the Holy Spirit of the Early Rain had been successfully converted 3,000 souls every day, then by the power of the Holy Spirit of the Later Rain that would come the number of people who would repent every day would have been much higher. Thus, the preaching of the gospel to the whole world will be completed in the short period.

[6] As soon as the task of preaching the gospel is finished in this world, the whole long period that has been reserved for the repentance of mankind is also finished. Then God will pour on this earth the last seven plagues, which will torment and kill the wicked who are still alive for a long time ”for a season and time” — Daniel 7:12, that is, for one year and three months.

[7] Only then did Jesus appear from deep in the clouds of heaven at His second coming. And so ended the entire history of sinful mankind on this earth.

Prophecy predicts, then history will also prove. All seven events above are events that have been prophesied long before, since the time of the Old Testament. These events have not been witnessed in past history, for they will only be fulfilled at the end of the present world.

CONCLUSION

 

Speaking of the Holy Spirit, one immediately thinks of the “Davidians,” for they are the only Seventh-day Adventists who fellowship in the Seventh-day Adventist Fellowship and are wise virgins, who have welcomed the Truth of the Holy Spirit from the very beginning. And they are the only ones who have been promoting the SPIRIT OF PROPHECT among us all these years.

Since it was prophesied and foretold long ago, that they would be persecuted for the cause of the Truth (read: Isaiah 66:5 and Matthew 5:10), we should not be swayed by the accusations and slander against the Davidians in our midst. This should be understood, for it is precisely they who have been offering us the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY as the only saving Truth. Who else could you get from the saving prophetic Spirit, if not from Victor T. Houteff and his Davidian followers, right?

Victor T. Houteff has come to bring the message of the angel Revelation 18:1, and has combined it with the message of the third angel from Mrs. White, resulting in the “great light” that illuminates the earth, the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY (read: Early Writings, p. 277). During his lifetime, Houteff only recognized Waco, Texas, USA, as the sole location for the General Federation Center of Davidian SDA in the last days, because it was the only ORGANIZATION resulting from the reorganization of the General Conference of SDA, which he had done himself to fulfill Mrs. White’s call for revival and reformation in the Review and Herald, February 25, 1902.

With the emergence of new Davidian General Fellowship Centers in many parts of the United States and Canada after Houteff’s death in 1955, and with the emergence of conflicting beliefs among them, it is wise to return to the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY itself to investigate under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, but not to join in blaming Houteff and his fascinating message of the Shepherd’s Rod, as a misleading message.

It is undeniable, then, that it is because of the emergence of unrighteous Davidian Association of SDA Centers now day and because of the actions of those who have called themselves Davidians, that have been used as a pretext of the GCSDA church and its spiritually lukewarm pastors to portray Davidians as little devils or monsters to be feared. In fact, all of this is only to divert people’s eyes from the moral depravity of the pastors themselves, as a result of their spit out of Jesus’ mouth since 1935.

The existence of several thousand Adventist pastors in the world, along with hundreds of theologians with so many academic degrees, is more than enough to be able to present us with the prophecies of the Bible and all its interpretations in the Spirit of Prophecy, both in writing through Sabbath School and books. They should already have far superior capabilities than those shown by Houteff and his followers. But why are they so much more stupid and utterly helpless against only a handful of Davidians? Mrs. White’s servant warned:

“We are living in the last days, when error of a most deceptive character is accepted and believed, while truth is discarded. The Lord will hold both ministers and people responsible for the light shining upon them. He calls upon us to work diligently in gathering up the jewels of truth, and placing them in the framework of the gospel.”Gospel Workers 1915, pg.289.1

The pastors and all their spiritually lukewarm followers will be held accountable to the Lord God for all the Truths of the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY that has been thrown out all these years.

CLOSING

From the above descriptions, it can be understood how difficult it is for us, as sinners who are lost in this world, to be able to rediscover the correct form of worship at the end of the present world. In our own ignorance and weaknesses, it is difficult to discern between what is right to adhere, to and what is wrong to reject. While so many of those who professed themselves to be the Davidian General Association of SDA both recognized Houteff with his message of the Shepherd’s Rod, and both acknowledged Mrs. White with the message of the Spirit of Prophecy, it still continues to disagree to this day. However, it is the Truth of the Holy Spirit alone that will emerge victorious together with His people. And that is what Mrs. White’s servant herself has said:

“God will arouse His people; if other means fail, heresies will come in among them, which will sift them, separating the chaff from the wheat. The Lord calls upon all who believe His word to awake out of sleep. Precious light has come, appropriate for this time.”5 Testimonies, p. 707.

The precious light of the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY has come. It was that light that first separated the wheat out of the tares at the General Conference of SDA in the United States, and then in our churches around the world. At this time the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY is also filtering the so-called Davidian of SDA in this world, to separate those who belong to the “chaff” group.

Beware, therefore, that even to us servants of the Lord have urged: Let us strive with all the power that God has given us to be among the hundred and forty-four thousand.” – Review and Herald, March 9, 1905, yet concerning those 144,000 chosen people of God, John the Revelator said: “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 14:4, 5.

Those 144,000 are wise virgins who have no “guile” in their mouths, namely wheat, which symbolizes the Davidians of SDA. According to Jesus’ parable (Matthew 20:16), many will be called to enter the class of wise virgins or the class of wheat, which symbolizes the Davidians, but only a few (144,000) are chosen, it is the virgins who have guile in their mouths who will not be chosen one day. It is the virgins who have a guile in their mouths that “chaff” that is knocked out of the wheat. They are the false Davidians who exist today, who will be knocked out of the wheat that symbolizes pure Davidians. The guile in their mouths is indeed very misleading because there is so little difference between the truth and error that almost their falsehood can no longer be detected. Therefore it should always be remembered, that “Without the enlightenment of the Spirit, men will not be able to distinguish truth from error, and they will fall under the masterful temptations of Satan.” Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 408, 409.

Beloved Brothers! Beware, because the fake Davidians of “chaff” are now all around us. Always remember it, because long ago the servant of the Lord Victor T. Houteff had warned, that:

“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 change.” — The White House Recruiter, p.111 (Edition 1999)

We are just sinful and weak human beings, who are like a lost sheep in the middle of the forest. There is never a lost sheep that can return to its own fold, without the help of man or the shepherd. We will only be able to return to the fold by the famous voice call of the Shepherd himself. Jesus is the Good Shepherd. He is the only one who really knows who deserves to be called, and who no longer needs to be called. Call upon Him in your diligent prayers, and take advantage of the opportunities that exist while the time of repentance for us is still open.
