The Organization Issue
From Engedi to Eneglaim
2. In 1935 the servant of the Lord, Bro. Victor T. Houteff and his followers moved to Waco, Texas. There then the General Association of Davidian SDA was established, which was later also known by the name, The Mount Carmel Center of Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas, USA.
3. The Message of the Shepherd’s Rod was created ever since in 1929 in Los Angeles, California up to 1955 in Waco, Texas. And in 1955 the servant of the Lord died after having united the whole message of the Rod of the angel of Revelation 18 : 1 with the Spirit of Prophecy of the third angel of Revelation 14 into the so-called THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY of Revelation 19 : 10 margin.
4. In 1954 the Lord has instructed His servant to write in the Symbolic Code (10 SC 1 : 3 – 6, Sept 1954) to let them sell the whole properties of the Mount Carmel Center beginning with the excess properties first to be sold.
5. The servant of the Lord, Bro. Victor T. Houteff died in 1955. The Organization of Mount Carmel Center was then run by Mrs. Houteff as Vice President and her fellow workers.
6. In 1962 the Mount Carmel Center of the Lord which was ever been established by His servant, Bro. Victor T. Houteff, the prophet, was then liquidated and then sold to the Presbyterian Church.
7. Due to the fact that no more instruction from the Lord could ever be found, either through Bro. Houteff or through Mrs. Ellen G. White and her testimonies, or through the Old Testament prophets and their positive words of prophecies, or through any parable of Jesus in the New Testament, that could ever direct us to the reestablishment of the Mount Carmel Center later, it must be then clear that the dissolution of the Mount Carmel Center of the Lord in 1962 should have been for good and for ever. 8. Nevertheless the fate of his followers who survived the death of Bro. Houteff in 1955 could not be left without any assurance from the Lord. This should be understood because long beforehand through prophet Zechariah 13 : 6, 7 the Lord would have taken the rein in His own hand upon the little ones of those scattered after the death of their shepherd in 1955. Even Mrs. White has stated the same things through her testimonies in her book entitled Testimonies to Ministers, p. 300.9. Prophet Zechariah and Mrs. Ellen G. White have ever assured us, that after the death of the servant of the Lord in 1955, then ever since the Lord would have taken the rein in His own hand up to the great and dreadful day of the Lord when the prophecy of Ezekiel 9 would be fulfilled.
10. The Lord God is now working in a manner very much out of the common order of things, and in a way that will be contrary to any human planning. That is, the Lord is now working no more through an Organized Body such as through a General Association of Davidian SDA. in the USA. The Lord would have to work through the associations of those little ones, who are to be led by His own appointed teachers of the Rod whose dedication to the work would no more be done through the laying on of hands.
Let us therefore beware !
As soon as after the death of the servant of the Lord in 1955, there have been established in the USA several new Headquarters of Mount Carmel Center such as those mentioned here below :
Mount Carmel Center of Davidian SDA in Elk, Texas,
Mount Carmel Center of Davidian SDA in Salem, South Caroline,
Mount Carmel Center of Davidian SDA in Mountain dale, New York,
Mount Carmel Center of Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas.
The Mount Carmel Center of DSDA in Waco, Texas today is the last established in 1991 on the original location of the Mount Carmel Center of the Lord established by His servant Bro. Houteff in 1935, which was liquidated and sold to the Presbyterian Church in 1962, and was again be bought back.
All of those owners of the above mentioned Organizations of the Mount Carmel Center still persist, that the establishment of their Organizations is lawfully legal, because they have based their establishments of the Organizations solely upon the Constitution and the By-laws of the Leviticus of Davidian SDA., codified by the servant of the Lord himself. Whereas they intentionally fail to admit that no single instruction from the Lord could ever be found either through the message of the Rod, or from any testimony from Mrs. White or from any prophetic words of the old Testament prophets, to direct us to the reestablishment of the Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, after its dissolution in 1962, and after the death of Bro. Houteff in 1955. They even fail to admit up to this very day that the Eleventh-hour Call applies solely for the salvation of the laities in the churches, and not for the salvation of the Organization.
Meanwhile those Mount Carmel Centers of Davidian SDA above are now competing among themselves to teach the message of the Rod as best as possible to excite their people and to gain the amazement of the new comers on their Organizations that their leadership is truly under the guiding hand of the Lord and His Spirit of Truth.
Let us, therefore, as Truth seekers beware, that though the message of the Shepherd’s Rod or the Eleventh-hour Call presented by those Organizations of Mount Carmel Center mentioned above, could in general be deemed right and true, they, as the illegal Organizations of Mount Carmel Center of Davidian SDA in this time of the end, would at last be given to salt.. Turn to salt, means eternally lost. Remember the fate of Lot’s wife in the past.
those marishes and miry places
of the great river of the prophecy of Ezekiel 47
Let us remember that those presented through the chart of the great river of Ezekiel 47 are mainly the antitypical events which are to transpire in the future. According to the prophecy we have been now living in the period of “ENGEDI”, which is the Laodicea period. Whereas those prophesied through the antitypical events in the future are to take place in the period of “ENEGLAIM.”
Salvation of those in ENEGLAIM in the future will be worked out by the 144.000 elected saints of God, when the third angel’s message is to be proclaimed with a loud voice unto the entire world. The result is to be as waters coming out of a great river first is measureable and later no more could be measured that people must swim to pass it. And the waters represent people of those prophesied in Revelation 7 : 9, a great multitude which no man could number of all nations and kindred’s and people, and tongues. They are to be saved into the Kingdom through the message of salvation. But conversely the servant of the Lord said :
“But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not be healed : they shall be given to salt.” (Ezekiel 47 : 11). The ”marishes” and the ”miry places” represent denominations and sects separate of the “mighty river” and that they shall not be saved, or healed. “Turned to salt,” means eternally lost as was Lot’s wife. “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man ………..Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot ……… Remember Lot’s wife.” (Luke 17 : 26, 28, 32).” The Shepherd’s Rod, vol. 2, p. 297.
As in the antitype in ENEGLAIM the third’s angel message of those 144.000 elects of God would have failed to salvage the sects and the denominations in the future, then in the type in ENGEDY today during this time of the end, no wonder if the Eleventh-hour Call would have also failed to salvage the antitypical sects and the denominations. The sects and the denominations in the Laodicea Church today would unavoidably represent the General Conference of SDA and the Organizations of that Mount Carmel Center of Davidian SDA mentioned above. Sects and the denominations could not represent personal being of man or woman.
Since the message of the Shepherd’s Rod or the Eleventh-hour Call applies only to the Laodicea Church in the time of the end, it would not difficult for anyone of us to identify those Organizations in our midst who are to be represented by the sects and the denominations.
in the Chart of the great river
of the prophecy of Ezekiel chapter 47
Let us identify carefully that the waters that come out from the spring must unavoidably represent the message of the Shepherd’s Rod the first time came through Bro. Victor T. Houteff in Los Angeles, California, USA. The spring of the waters also represents “p o – w e r” and the “p e o p l e” or “the Church.”
At the prophetic Chart the progress of work during the period of ENEGLAIM was measured periodically. There are several times of measurement. Whereas the progress of work during the typical period of ENGEDI, we should have known them ourselves from the factual events. We, therefore, could have identified them ourselves on the other chart beginning with the message the first time came in 1929 from the spring in Los Angeles, California through the servant of the Lord Bro. Victor T. Houteff. The spring of water according to the author is to represent (1) the message of the Rod, (2) the power, and (3) the people or the Church. Now let us follow how the measurement carried out during the antitypical period of ENEGLAIM, and then to find out when the measurement should have taken place during our typical period of ENGEDI.
1. During the antitypical period:
Let it be identified that after the waters began to flow out representing the 144.000 elects of God began to proclaim the message to the world, and then began the first measurement.to take place. The result is that the waters have reached up to the ankle.
2. During the typical period of our time:
The typical time began in 1929 up to 1935. The achievement during this typical period is that the number of Houteff’s followers is enough to move them to Waco, Texas, to establish the Organization of Mount Carmel Center of Davidian SDA, to have the Organization of General Conference of SDA been reorganized according to the Call for a spiritual revival and reformation by Mrs. White in the Review and Herald, February 25, 1902.
3. During the antitypical period :
At the second measurement the waters has reached up to the knee.
4. During the typical period of our time :
From 1935 up to the time of his death in 1955 Bro. Houteff has accomplished the work of creating the message of the angel of Rev. 18 : 1 and of having united it with the third angel’s message of Rev. 14 into the so-called THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. And this is THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY of Revelation 19 : 10 margin.
5. During the antitypical period :
Up to this time of the third measurement the waters has reached up to the waist.
6. During the typical period of our time :
This typical period begins in 1955, and up to the great and dreadful day of the Lord when the prophecy of Ezekiel 9 is to be fulfilled. Since the measurement will take place at the end of the period, then the progress of this typical period will be identified by the emergence of the 144.000 living saints to stand with the Lord on the Mount Zion in the Palestine.
7. During the antitypical period :
In the antitypical period in the future during the period of ENEGLAIM which represents the whole world of Babylon outside, there are sects and denominations represented by miry places and marishes, separate from the mighty river, that they shall not be saved or healed. “Turned to salt,” means eternally lost as was Lot’s wife. Thus said the servant of the Lord.
During this typical period of ENGEDI, after the death of Bro. Houteff the shepherd, the Lord would have taken the rein in His own hand. Now is the time when the message of the Rod as the Eleventh-hour Call would have at the end to employ the 144.000 unemployed laymen in the Church to go into the vineyard to accomplish all the work in the whole world. Whereas those Organizations and their affiliates represented by “miry places and marishes” would be totally slaughtered at the fulfillment of the prophecy of Ezekiel 9.
Since all the antitypical events are sure and positive, we should have unavoidably met the sects and the denominations in our typical period of ENGEDI now. Who are they exactly? They are of course none other than the Organizations we have been familiar with as mentioned here below :
a. The General Conference of SDA
b. The General Association of Davidian SDA di Waco, Texas,
c. The General Association of Davidian SDA di Elk Texas,
d. The General Association of Davidian SDA di Mountain Dale, New York
e. The General Association of Davidian SDA di Salem, South Caroline
f. And so on …….
Bro. Houteff as the last prophet of God has accomplished his work up to 1955. Ever since the time he died even up to this very moment, we are no more under the leadership of any Organization of God. Since the message of the Shepherd’s Rod as The Eleventh-hour Call could no more save any Organization of Mount Carmel Center in this time of the end, let us beware, therefore, that up to the time he died in 1955 Bro. Houteff has never left behind for us a message nor an order that his Organization of Mount Carmel Center of Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas, should have been reestablished on its original location to continue his mission of saving the Church up to the great and dreadful day of the Lord when the prophecy of Ezekiel 9 will be fulfilled.
Even his own Organization, after being painfully defended by his own wife as Vice President after his death, it could not survive much longer. Do you know why? The only answer is because the Shepherd’s Rod message as the Eleventh-hour Call could not save the Organization. Thus could it be understood that after the whole properties of the Mount Carmel Center of Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas be sold in 1962, it would then be dissolved for good and for ever.
And just ever since that the Lord has taken the rein in His own hand to meet the fulfillment of the prophetic words of prophet Zechariah (Zechariah 13 : 6, 7) and as those predicted before by Mrs. Ellen G. White in her book Testimonies to Ministers, p. 300. And then how could all those things be carried out today among us?
To this end are the prophetic words of John the Revelator to meet their fulfillment as follows : “BLESSED IS HE THAT READETH AND THEY THAT HEAR THE WORDS OF THIS PROPHECY, AND KEEP THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN THEREIN : FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND.” – REVELATION 1 : 3.
Every one of us has now to read and to study for himself the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy and the Shepherd’s Rod message, because the authors of those publications have already died. However, that is not as yet enough. We are yet to hear more from those who are still alive. This is to prove that after all the prophets of the Lord died in this time of the end; they should have been succeeded by other divinely appointed agencies. And to this end Bro. Victor T. Houteff has ever said before he died :
“The Bible and the books of the Spirit of Prophecy being the sole source of the Shepherd’s Rod message, therefore when the Rod is taught, the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy are taught. And since none but the Spirit of Truth, who transmitted the mysteries of Inspiration, can interpret them, then those who attempt to teach them without this inspired interpretational Authority, inevitably fall into the forbidden practice of private interpretation (2 Peter 1 : 20) — the great evil which has brought Christendom into its present almost-boundless state of schism and consequent confusion, strife, and impotency.
As we dare not follow in such a path, w e must therefore as teachers of the Shepherd’s Rod (the official publications of the Davidian SDA Association), 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 Pet. 3 : 8; Isa. 52 : 8).“ – Fundamental Beliefs of Davidian SDA, pp. 26, 27.
The above statements would apply in force after he died in 1955. That means the Lord would have appointed teachers of His own choice to teach us more of the message, even to interpret those passages in the golden bowl of Zechariah chapter 4.
There are many more passages of the message in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY to be interpreted more fully after the death of Bro. Houteff as the last prophet in the time of the end. And regarding the teachers of the Lord own choice the servant of the Lord has ever said :
“God will send forth into His vineyard m a n y who have not been dedicated to the ministry by the laying on of hands.” – The Acts of the Apostles, p. 110.
That means, there are to emerge among us many more divinely appointed teachers of the Shepherd’s Rod, who will have never been dedicated to the ministry by the laying on of hands, because they are not to come from whatever Organization of Davidian SDA Headquarters in this time of the end.
