Why did the Lord speak in
Prophecies and Parables, and to whom did He speak ?



*  *

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man : but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”2 Peter 1 : 20 – 21.       

* *

Most Christians today are of the opinion that they are now ready to welcome Jesus at His second coming in the near future, for the reason that they have successfully read through the whole Bible several times. There are even more Christians, who think that they are truly ready at every moment to see Jesus, because they nearly never fail to attend Church services during the whole of their live time, either in town or wherever they are.

Such people are actually not as yet having even the least faith in the Lord Jesus as their Maker and the Savior. In general they are the people who only trust upon their preachers in the churches for their salvation. And their motive of attending frequently church services, is prophesied by prophet Isaiah of old, as those who sanctified and purified themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst. Read Isaiah 66 : 16 – 17. Such people usually have their faith founded upon only their feeling, and they deliberately are not willing to use their capacity to think rational on religious matters. Thus, they would never be able to distinguish, whether those sermons from the pulpit are truly profitable for salvation or not. They would never care whether such sermons could have provided them enough the Law and its Rules of implementation in Testimony of Jesus, which is the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, for them to maintain law and order in their lives here up to the coming of Jesus in the future.

Due to the fact that most preachers of today have their sermons more and more affecting the feeling of their congregations, so that those who frequently attend church services to find solaces and a way out from the burden of their everyday businesses, such as those living in the big cities or towns, they would temporarily be eased from their problems. And for those who usually have their feeling easily affected by such sermons, they will spend a little tears coming down their eyes.   

But to the contrary, just most people of such spiritual quality in the congregation will be deemed the faithful in the Lord, and the pillars of the congregation. Whereas just the people of such who have ever been prophesied by prophet Isaiah of old, that they are to be slain.  Let us read here below how the servant of the Lord did say :

“For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many. They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory. And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pull, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Ja-van, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory, and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.”Isaiah 66 : 16 – 19.

Since the fact that Isaiah’s prophecy was directed especially to God’s own people in the time of the end, then those who are to be slain must unavoidably be God’s own people. Therefore, from the statement above we could have understood in a glance as follows :

Fire  =  The Holy Spirit  or  the Spirit of Truth
The Sword  =  the Truth of  THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY.
The gardens  =  church buildings
One tree in the midst  =  The minister of the gospel  or the Pastor of the church
Swine’s flesh and the abomination  =  all kind of meat  banned according to the law of
Health Reform by the servant of the Lord in 1863.
Setting a sign among them  =  setting a mark of deliverance upon those 144.000 saints

A complete deliberation on the prophecy of Isaiah 66 could be found in an another article entitled : “BY FIRE AND BY HIS SWORD WILL THE LORD PLEAD WITH US.”

“For all the prophets
and the l a w  prophesied until John.”
(Matthew 11 : 13)

During the life time of Matthew the apostle, the New Testament prophets were not yet known. Those prophets mentioned by him, therefore, must unavoidably be the Old Testament prophets only. And due to the fact that not all of them did prophesy, then according to their prophecies available in the Bible, they must be none other than : prophet Isaiah, prophet Jeremiah, prophet Ezekiel, prophet Daniel, prophet Hosea, prophet Joel, prophet Amos, prophet Obadiah, prophet Jonah, prophet Micah, prophet Nahum, prophet Habakkuk, prophet Zephaniah, prophet Haggai, prophet Zechariah, and prophet Malachi.

The l a w that prophesied is the ceremonial law of Moses. In several interpretations of the prophecies by the servant of the Lord in this time of the end, the ceremonial law of Moses would also many times be implicated.

The time wherein the prophets did to prophesy

Read carefully the statement by the apostle (Matthew) above, that we may understand, that those prophets, during their life times of the Old Testament, they did only to prophesy up to the time of John the Baptist. John the Baptist himself was ever known to be the greatest prophet in the Bible.   

Thus let it be understood, that up to the time of John the Baptist, at the beginning of the New Testament era, there was no single prophecy as yet of those Old Testament prophets ever be interpreted. That means, that the period of time up to John the Baptist was certainly available only for the Old Testament prophets to have their prophecies documented for us. And then finished.

And later in the New Testament, should there ever a prophecy of those Old Testament prophets be interpreted during the time of the apostles, all the interpretations would have been documented for us in the New Testament. From the fact, however, there was none of the prophecies of the Old Testament prophets ever being interpreted in the time of the apostles.

Regarding the book of Revelation, though the name given to the book means something is revealed, it is just a complement of the prophetic book of Daniel. And since the book of Daniel itself was just to be interpreted in the time of the end, then the whole mystery of the book of Revelation would follow suit to be revealed in the time of the end.

After that we will come to the next period, which is the time of the great tribulation.

The dark ages of religion
during the 1260 years from 538 up to 1798 

Regarding this long period of time, Jesus himself has ever predicted it long beforehand in the following words :

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved : but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”Matthew 24 : 21, 22.

And John the Revelator wrote it in the following words :

“The angel of the Lord said : ……the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and three score days, clothed in sackcloth. …………………….

“And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. …………………

“And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another ; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet ; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.” – Revelation 11 : 2 – 11.

Mrs. White as the end time prophet then gave us the interpretations of the above prophecy here below :

The period here mentioned — “forty and two months,” and “a thousand two hundred and three score days” — are the same, alike representing the time in which the church of Christ was to suffer oppression from Rome. The 1260 years of papal supremacy began in A.D. 538 and would therefore terminate in 1798. At that time a French army entered Rome and made the pope a prisoner, and he died in exile. Though a new pope was soon afterward elected, the papal hierarchy was never since been able to wield the power which it before possessed.”

“The persecution of the church did not continue throughout the entire period of the 1260 years. God in mercy to His people cut short the time of their fiery trial. In foretelling the “great tribulation” to befall the church, the Saviour said : ‘Except those days should be shortened there should no flesh be saved  : but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” Matthew 24 : 22. Through the influence of the Reformation the persecution was brought to an end prior to 1798.” — Great Controversy, p. 266, 267. 

The great tribulation during 1260 years in the past was also known as “the dark   ages   of  religion”.  During  the  long  period  of  time  “t h e  a l l  t r u t h” mentioned by Jesus in John 16 : 13 have been abused and desecrated, the Sabbath of the fourth commandment was changed unto Sunday, and also times and laws were changed. All those changes were done by the power of the Roman Catholic Church and their popes.  In the prophecy of Daniel all these abuses could be read as follows :

“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and think to change times and laws : and they shall be given into his hand until a time, and times, and the dividing of time.” Daniel 7 : 25.

Note :   a time = a year;  times = two years; dividing of time = half a year.
The total is three and a half years = 42 months or 1260 days.
In the prophecy, one day is similar to one year.

            Thus the total is 1260 years.

Thus, let it be understood that up to the end of the whole tribulation in 1798 there was not as yet any of the prophecies of the Old Testament prophets ever to be interpreted.

Just at the time of the end
the mysteries of the prophecies began to be revealed

Just here in the time of the end was the prophetic statement by prophet Amos to be fulfilled when he said :  

“Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth H i s  s e c r e t unto His s e r v a n t s   t h e   p r o p h e t s.Amos 3 : 7.

All the prophecies of the Old Testament are the secret of the Lord God to be revealed only to His servants, the prophets, into THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY publications, to be proclaimed to all His people in the time of the end.

All the wise and intelligent should have understood that the statement by Amos the servant of the Lord (above) could not possibly be directed to those living in the Old Testament era, because no single prophecy of the Old Testament prophets ever revealed in that time, nor even during the time of the apostles along the first century.

The function of the Old Testament prophets and the law of Moses as those mentioned by the apostle Matthew is to prophesy until the time of John the Baptist. And during the life time of the apostles there was no single prophecy found, because no prophet ever lived during the time.

However, just in this time of the end, ever since the beginning of the eighteenth century, all the secrets of the prophecies began to be revealed by the so-called “the end time prophets”. And then the following words by the angel Gabriel to prophets Daniel ever since some 2500 years ago began to be fulfilled, when to Daniel he said :

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end : many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”

“And he said, Go thy way Daniel : for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 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 : 4, 9 – 10.

We are actually living now in the time of the end, even at the threshold of the end time itself. Therefore, we must unavoidably understand, that the end time prophets of those prophesied by prophet Amos should have come. And all the secrets of the prophecies of the Old Testament prophets, and the secret of the book of Revelation, even the secret of all the parables of Jesus in the New Testament, must all be now revealed in this time of the end. But wherein are they all to be revealed ?

Since all of those are messages from God directed specifically for His people now living in this time of the end, to be obeyed in their practical religion, then the messages should be the rules of implementation of the basic law of God. And that is the testimony of Jesus, which has been developed up to this time of the end in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. Thus is the Church of God in this time to be known by her spiritual identities mentioned in Revelation 12 : 17; 19 : 10 (margin), as follows :

“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.” “…………worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.”Revelation 12 : 17;  Revelation 19 : 10 (margin).

Note :    The woman = the Church;  the Son = Jesus Christ ;
Her seed   =  the Christians; the remnant of her seed =

              Christians who now living in this time of the end.

              The dragon = Satan the Devil.

Due to the fact that the end time prophets have accomplished their work to have all the mysteries of God of those prophecies and the parables of Jesus interpreted only in the Laodicean Church of Seventh day Adventists, then it is unavoidably to conclude that only in this Church is the dragon to make war with the people of God. Only in this Church is the conflict to occur between the leadership of the Organization and its diehard followers on the one side against the people of God on the other side, who wish to maintain the basic law and its rules of implementation in the SPIRIT OF PRROPHECY to exist in the Church.

But why is the Laodicean Church alone becoming the target by the dragon, whereas the other Christian Churches are always free from his assailments? To this end, we invite the attention of our readers to the other article entitled :  THE BOOK OF REVELATION TO WHOM DOES IT BELONG ?

In the book of Revelation we are to discover, that the whole period of time of the New Testament have been divided prophetically into 7 (seven) periods of Churches of God. The first period is called the Church of Ephesian in the time of the apostle Paul. The seventh period is the Laodicean Church during the life times of the end time prophets. The end time prophets consist of Bro. William Miller, Mrs. White and Bro. Victor T. Houteff. Bro. Miller did not leave behind for us any document of his writings, but all his teachings could be found inclusive in the publications of the Spirit of Prophecy by Mrs. White. Thus it is, that the Spirit of Prophecy by Mrs. White plus the Shepherd’s Rod by Bro. Houteff, are now accommodated in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. And here in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY all the rules of implementation of the Ten Commandments are available.

How the dragon or Satan has successfully
broken the Laodicean Church of God
in this time of the end 

The Laodicean Church, according to the prophecy in the book of Revelation, was first established by Mrs. White and her fellow pioneers in 1844. At the time, the prophecies that have been interpreted were still limited to only the book of Daniel, specifically on the purification of the heavenly sanctuary at the end of the 2300 days of Daniel 8 : 14. This is the prophecy that began to be interpreted by Bro. Miller ever since 1831. Thus was Bro. Miller and his followers ever since have been categorized in the Philadelphian Church of God.          

Though Bro. Miller, through his calculation has successfully found October 22, 1844 as the end of the 2300 prophetic days of Daniel 8 : 14, he was wrong when he proclaimed that at the time appointed the whole world would be purified by fire at the second coming of Jesus.

So the only truth that could be found from Bro. Miller is the definite time of October 22, 1844 as the beginning of the investigative judgment to take place in the heavenly sanctuary. This is the antitypical event of “the day of atonement” carried out once a year in the most holy place of the tabernacle of the Israelites in the time of Moses.

The Laodicean Church that was first established in 1844 was not as yet being fought by the dragon, because the mysteries of the prophecies of the Old Testament were not as many as should be interpreted then found at that time. Obviously, because the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY as the combination of the third angel’s message by Mrs. White and the message of the angel of Revelation 18 : 1 by Bro. Houteff  was not as yet available. Even up to the time Mrs. White died in 1915 she was always respected and honored as the servant of the Lord God.

However, after the coming of Bro. Victor T. Houteff in 1929 as the last of the end time prophets, to unite his message of the Shepherd’s Rod with the message of the Spirit of Prophecy by Mrs. White into the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY of Revelation 19 : 10 (margin) to meet Mrs. White statement here below,

“Then I saw another mighty angel commissioned to descend to the earth, to unite his voice with the third angel, and give power and force to his message. Great power and glory were imparted to the angel, and as he descended, the earth was lightened with his glory………………… This message seemed to be an addition to the third message, joining it as the midnight cry joined the second angel’s message in 1844.”Early Writings, p. 277.

then began the conflict in the Laodicean Church of God. The angel of Laodicea as leadership of the Seventh day Adventist Church and their diehard followers on the one side, stood up against the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY and the Laodiceans who embrace the message even up to this day. Most of the Laodiceans of God have been dismissed and their names erased from the Church record, and even banned from attending church services, only for the reason of disseminating falsehood among their members.

According to her name, “the Laodicean Church”, which means “people who proclaim judgment“ or the investigative judgment in the heavenly sanctuary since October 22, 1844. They are indeed the Laodiceans of God, who know their end time prophets and embrace their messages in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY.

Bro. Victor T. Houteff, the author of the message of the Shepherd’s Rod as the last prophet of this time of the end, and all his followers have been dismissed. Their names were erased from their Church books and banned from attending church services. Thus here is fulfilled the prophetic words of God through John the Revelator as follows :

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then, because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing: and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: ………” – Revelation 3 : 14 – 17. 

How is the Laodicean Church of God
to be separated  from her angel of the Church and his diehard followers for good

Long before the great separation mentioned above to occur, the servant of the Lord Mrs. White had ever issued a special message in the Review and Herald, dated February 25, 1902 as follows :  

God calls for a spiritual revival and a spiritual reformation. Unless this takes place, those who are lukewarm will continue to grow more abhorrent to the Lord, until He will refuse to acknowledge them as His children.

“A revival and a reformation must take place under the ministration of the Holy Spirit. Revival and reformation are two different things. Revival signifies a renewal of spiritual life, a quickening of the powers of mind and heart, a resurrection from spiritual death. Reformation signifies reorganization, a change in ideas and theories, habits and practices. Reformation will not bring forth the good fruit of righteousness unless it is connected with the revival of the Spirit. Revival and reformation are to do their appointed work, and in doing this work they must blend“ — Review and Herald, 25 February 1902.  

Up to the time she died in 1915 the Call was not as yet realized. And even up to some ten years later, the Call for a spiritual revival and a spiritual reformation seemed to be wholly forgotten by the leadership of the General Conference of SDA and their ministers of the gospel.

But suddenly in 1929 came Bro. Victor T. Houteff, a Sabbath School chairman, of a small church in California, USA. An only ordinary man with very limited back ground of education to come up with his message of the Shepherd’s Rod, which began to reveal most of the mysteries of the Old Testament prophecies one after another. In his first book entitled The Shepherd’s Rod volume one, he said :

“IT IS THE INTENTION OF THIS BOOK TO REVEAL THE TRUTH OF THE 144.000 MENTIONED IN REVELATION 7, BUT THE CHIEF OBJECT OF THIS PUBLICATION IS TO BRING ABOUT A  R E F O R M A T I O N AMONG GOD’S PEOPLE.” – THE SHEPHERD’S ROD, VOL. 1, P. 3.  

Since r e f o r m a t i o n signifies a reorganization, then the Headquarters of the General Conference of SDA should have been re-organized by the servant of God, Bro. Houteff, to become the Headquarters of Davidian SDA     in Waco, Texas. USA, ever since 1935. Thus the Lord God ever since would no more permit His Laodicean Church to be under the leadership of the angel of the Laodicea, which represents the ministers of SDA Church in the entire world and their General Conference of SDA in USA. They have been fallen so deep in the spiritual poverty, and have been spewed out of Jesus’ mouth in 1935.

The fate of the Laodiceans who survive
the death of Bro. Houteff in 1955 up to now

Due to the fact that the message of the shepherd’s Rod and the message of the Eleventh hour Call of Jesus’ parable in Matthew 20 is the same message, then we have to know that the householder or the owner of the vineyard is Jesus Himself. About the eleventh hour Jesus went out and found others standing idle in the marketplace. Those standing idle are in need to be employed in the vineyard. In the fulfillment of the parable in this time of the end, the servant of the Lord, Bro. Victor T. Houteff has been appointed to represent Jesus to carryout the work. This is according to the rule of law as those stipulated in Ephesian 4 : 11 – 14. That means, the work of finding people standing idle in the marketplace to be employed in the vineyard could not be entrusted to any Organization whatsoever. 

Therefore, at the time Bro. Houteff came in 1929 with the message of the Eleventh-Hour Call, to proclaim in the churches, he totally failed to get an acceptance from the angel of the Laodiceans, who represents the Organization of the General Conference of SDA and its ministers in the entire world.  In other words, the Organization and all its ministers of the gospel refused to be employed in the vineyard of the Lord Jesus. But, he successfully gained the consent of several people of ordinary membership.

After gaining enough membership from the churches to join in, he then moved to Waco, Texas, in 1935 to re-organize the Organization of the General Conference of SDA into the General Association of Davidian SDA. And from there he and his Organization began to work to accomplish the task as those stipulated in the Review and Herald, February 25, 1902 by his predecessor Mrs. Ellen G. White in regard to the Call for a spiritual revival and a spiritual reformation to carryout in the Seventh-day Adventist churches. The fact is, however, that he died in 1955 long before the task allotted to him could be finished.

Due to the fact that the message of the Eleventh-hour Call could no more be entrusted by Jesus to any Organization whatsoever to proclaim the message to the churches, then in 1954 one year before he died, the Lord has instructed him to write in The Symbolic Code (the special organ of the Davidian SDA) to sell a l l the assets of the Organization, to start with the excessive assets.  Do you know what does it mean ?

All the wise should have understood, that by selling all the assets of the Organization of the General Association of Davidian SDA in Texas, the onlyOrganization of God that survived the death of His last prophet of the time of the end, should have accomplished its work for good.

Then how is the fate of the Laodiceans or those Davidians SDA of present truth believers, who survived the death of Bro. Houteff in 1955 even up to this day ? To this end let us find the answer through the prophecy of Prophet Zechariah here below as follows :

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

Since the prophecy of Zechariah has just met its fulfillment in this time of the end, then the shepherd and the sheep mentioned above must inevitably be none other than Bro. Victor T. Houteff and his followers.

No one could ever deny the fact that after the death of Bro. Houteff in 1955, all his followers in the world have been scattered without any leadership, even without any trustable Organization. All the Laodiceans or Davidian SDA of present truth believers are now scattered everywhere in the world. Nevertheless, there are also people from among them who went back to Waco, Texas, at their own initiative to reestablish the Waco, Headquarters of Davidian SDA on its original location in 1991, 36 years after the death of the servant of the Lord. Ironically is, that they show us as if they are the sole representative of heaven to accomplish the Call of spiritual revival and reformation in this time of the end, up to the fulfillment of the prophecy of Ezekiel 9. And in their stubbornness they won’t believe, that the Lord is now taking the rein in His own hand, by turning His hand upon the little ones. (Read Zechariah 13 : 7). They stubbornly insist that the prophecy of Zechariah 13 : 7 has met its fulfillment in the time of Jesus in Palestine, and no more to be fulfilled now in this time of the end. Is this not men’s own fabrication ? To this end, therefore, the servant of the Lord Mrs. White long beforehand had ever warned 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 us 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 (of THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY) 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. The workers will be surprised by the simple means that He will use to bring about and perfect His work of righteousness.”Testimonies to Ministers, p. 300. (In the brackets is added)

If ever before when all the Laodiceans of God were still affiliated with the Organization of the Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas, there will be those among us 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 message of the Shepherd’s Rod that joins the Spirit of Prophecy into the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY to be given to the world. ….., But after surviving the death of Bro. Houteff in 1955 up to now, all the Laodiceans of God should be ready to be scattered here and there without any Organization, for only the hand of God will be leading everywhere in the world through His own appointed teachers of the Shepherd’s Rod.

Attention : The angel of Laodicea = Organization of General Conference
and all the ministers of the gospel
The Laodiceans or the Laodicean Church = God’s people
Not all Seventh Day Adventists are the Laodicean of God,
they are the diehard followers of the angel of Laodicea.


The benefit from the Lord God
to speak in prophecies that were so mysterious 

Jesus said : “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into a l l   t r u t h, for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall  hear, that  shall  he  speak :  and  he  will  show  you  t h i n g s  t o  c o m e.”John 16 : 13. 

After the pouring out of the Spirit of early rain on the day of Pentecost, then the apostles began to write to have provided for us “the all truth” in the New Testament. Whereas the Old Testament with most of the mysterious prophecies of the prophets, were not as yet interpreted, because they are just “the things to come” of those mentioned in John 16 : 13 to be interpreted in the time of the end by the end time prophets.

During the dark ages of the 1260 years in the past “the all truth” have been abused and manipulated to such, the Law of the Ten Commandments of God was changed, and even the Bible had ever been banned from circulation by the popes of the Roman Catholic Church. Million upon millions of Christians died as martyrs up to the time of Reformation began by Martin Luther and his fellow reformers in 1500.

Therefore, through the Reform Movement pioneered by DR. Martin Luther, and then followed by John Knox, John Wesley, Alexander Campbell, William Miller and Mrs. Ellen G. White, then the all truth finally have been restored.

Whereas “the things to come,” as those prophesied by the Old Testament prophets in the Old Testament were still in mystery, and not as yet revealed during the 1260 years of the great tribulation, they are all save beyond the power of the barbaric popes and his hands. And even up to this very moment, after having been interpreted into the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY by the end time prophets, who are not much known among the Christians in the world up to now, the purity of the whole messages in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY in this time of the end could still be preserved and maintained. To this end the servant of the Lord said :

“The chief purpose of teaching by parables is that the truth may be revealed to God’s children and at the same time concealed from His enemies. …… For this same reason the prophecies that described the great antichristian powers and their work down to the end of time had to be clothed in symbolic and parabolic language to insure their preservation.”Sabbath School Lesson Quarterly, p. 33. Second Quarter, 1932.  

More than 2500 years ago the angel Gabriel also had ever said :

“And he said, Go thy way Daniel : for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 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 : 4, 9 – 10.

Finally, let us also know for sure, that since every new light will never discard the old ones, that “the all truth” and “the things to come” promised by Jesus in John 16 : 13 would finally be accommodated in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY publications.

The all truth that ever through reformation has been restored by Luther, Knox, Wesley, Campbell, Miller and White, are now accommodated in the Spirit of Prophecy publications of Mrs. White. And later when the Shepherd’s Rod message by Bro. Houteff came to unite with the message of the Spirit of Prophecy by Mrs. White in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, then  the following 2 (two) statements by the servant of the Lord Mrs. White will be fulfilled,

(1)

“Then I saw another mighty angel commissioned to descend to the earth, to unite his voice with the third angel, and give power and force to his message. Great power and glory were imparted to the angel, and as he descended, the earth was lightened with his glory………………… This message seemed to be an addition to the third message, joining it as the midnight cry joined the second angel’s message in 1844.”Early Writings, p. 277.

The third angel message = the Spirit of Prophecy by Mrs. White
The message from the other mighty angel = The Shepherd’s Rod of the angel of Revelation 18 : 1 by Bro. Victor T. Houteff.

(2)

In ancient times God spoke to men by the mouth of the prophets and apostles. In these days He speaks to them by the testimonies of His Spirit. There was never a time when God instructed His people more earnestly than He instructs them now concerning His will, and the course that He would have them pursue.” 5 Testimonies, p. 661.

C o n c l u d e d 


“Each of the ancient prophets spoke less for their own time than for ours, so that their prophesying is in force for us.” —
— 3 Selected Messages, p. 338 —


Due to the fact that nearly all Christians in the world today have their knowledge of their prophets just very limited to only the Old Testament prophets, let them look a moment to the apostle Matthew and his statement in the following word : “For all the prophets and the l a w prophesied until John.” Matthew 11 : 13.

They are the prophecies of the Old Testament prophets, which through Amos the prophet (Amos 3 : 7); we have been informed that the mysteries of those prophecies are to be revealed in the later days by the servants of the Lord, the prophets. They are, therefore, unavoidably the end time prophets we are now talking about.

As well as those mysteries of the prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation will be interpreted in the time of the end, so are the prophecies of the Old Testament prophets to follow suit. They are all to be interpreted in this time of the end.

Let us try to know better the end time prophets each with their message, that finally under the guiding hand of the Lord Himself we will be led unto the “golden bowl” that represents The SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. Only through The SPIRIT OF PROPHECY with all the rules of implementation of the L a w of God, we will again be able to return to the Lord by obeying all the rules of the Law. And then to take peace with our heavenly Father. To this end Moses as the scientist of the Law of God and the historian of creation of the world has ever said :

“The secret things belong unto the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, t h a t  we may do all the words of this l a w.” –Deuteronomy 29 : 29.
