Concerning my friend Danny Vierra''s passing, I want to start by saying I will miss Danny very much. His Health and Healing Crusades were excellent first class events and they were always held at the beginning of June every summer which means they would set the tone for the rest of my summer's camp meeting schedule and adventures for the last 23 years. Danny had an unparalleled impact upon the world with his high energy zeal and passion for living, eating and healing as naturally as possible. Danny had a vibrant, electric and encouraging personality and a strong commitment to excellence. His speeches were always like receiving a strong steroid shot full of faith in the health message and eating, living and healing in a more natural, God approved way. This is why I say along with Job this sad winter morning "Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: Yahuwah gave, and Yahuwah hath taken away; blessed be the name of Yahuwah." I don't know how a person like Danny Vierra will ever be replaced in a million years but my God and my Lord is still willing and able to do miracles as He sees fit. His mighty arm has not grown short.
Please don't take this article the wrong way. This website is a reflection of my thoughts and perspectives and it helps me and hopefully many others to perceive and understand deeper spiritual realities than if I had not written it. If a person speaks and rebukes it often means he loves his brother. If a person is silent when he sees wrong it can mean that he is either a coward or that he hates his brother. Here is a biblical example of someone who spoke nothing because he hated his fellow Israelite.
2 Samuel 13:22 "But Absalom did not speak to Amnon either good or bad; for Absalom hated Amnon because he had violated his sister Tamar."
Then we have Leviticus 19:17 "Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him." And Proverbs 27:5. "Open rebuke is better than secret love."
Love that is hidden and never discloses itself in acts of self-denial or generosity, especially that which from fear of offending does not rebuke a friend, nor speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15), when there is good reason for such openness - such disguised love is worse, more objectionable, less beneficial, than the plain speaking which bravely censures a fault, and dares to correct what is wrong by well-timed blame. To hold back blame, it has been said, is to hold back love. "I love not my friend," wrote Seneca ('Ep.,' 25), "if I do not offend him." Plautus, 'Trinum.,' 1:2, 57 -
WARNING!!!! IF YOU FORGET GOD’S STATUTES/FEAST DAYS, GOD CAN NOT HEAL YOU AND GOD PROMISES TO FORGET YOUR CHILDREN AS WELL. GUARANTEED!!
I loved Danny Vierra and I attended every single one of Danny Vierra's charismatic Health and Healing Crusades in Lodi, CA since 1994. There are not too many people that can say that except for his immediate family members. He definitely had a wonderful, one of a kind, God appointed ministry and with the exception of one major issue, he was a tremendous blessing and an inspiration in my life. I have immensely enjoyed Danny's ministry with all the enthusiasm, all the interesting people I have met, friends I have made, presentations I have listened to over the years and I hope Danny's son Daniel continues in his father's legacy to uplift a healthier way of life. To Danny's credit, even though he disagreed with me on the teaching of the feast days that I have promoted zealously for the last 23 years, Danny never excommunicated me like so many other Adventist venues have done. Danny understood religious tolerance and freedom which is what makes America such a great nation. Danny knew that I loved him, his family and his ministry and I told Danny in 2008 at the GYC in San Jose that his Health and Healing Crusades were the very best camp meetings in all of Adventism. The poor could come for free, the best, most charismatic health lecturers, the unchurched, the godless and sinners could come and rub elbows with health minded Seventh-day Adventist from all over he world.
At the 2008 GYC at the San Jose Convention center I saw Danny standing in a huge hallway by himself just outside of the main auditorium gazing off into the main entrance beholding all of the people, the state of the art audio visual equipment set up etc. I had not seen or talked to Danny for 4-5 years because he had gone through a very ugly and stressful divorce which devastated him causing him to stop organizing the Health and Healing crusades for those 4-5 years. I came and stood next to Danny and he started telling me how he longed to "do it right". At this moment I reassured Danny that in my humble opinion, his camp meetings were the very best and yes even better than the GYC (Generation of Youth For Christ) and the SDA general conference camp meetings. They were fun, exciting, spiritual events that challenged the statu us quo and conventional medicine. No other camp meetings even came close. I was always sad when these camp meeting would end because I wanted them to continue for at least a week instead of only 3 days that they usually lasted. It's the love of human beings and of the natural healing of human life that made Danny's health ministry great.
After the GYC convention Danny, his children and a few other friends were planning to go have a vegetarian Subway sandwich and when I heard this I told Danny of a delicious vegan restaurant in downtown San Jose called the Vegetarian House, Organic Vegan Rest aut ant. At my suggestion Danny decided to change his plans. While we were eating I recall Danny commenting and making a keen observation with a certain amount of indignation in his voice upon all the free literature that was on display in various places in the restaurant and how Satan was using the health message to evangelize the new age religion cult leader of the Vietnamese woman who owned the restaurant. On this Danny he was absolutely correct. In this restaurant, Satan was using a vegan cuisine and health evangelism as an evangelistic tool. Satan has hijacked the health message to recruit people to his service when it is Seventh-day Adventists that should have been running a vegan restaurant in San Jose for evangelistic purposes instead.
After we ate, Danny gave me a ride back to my car and just before we arrived at the parking garage I somehow brought up the subject of the feast days and at this, Danny suddenly stiffened up and seemed very uncomfortable and wanted to me out of his car as soon as possible. He didn't yell at me or anything like that but I could feel the tention and tell that his blood pressure shot up and his conscious was pricked. It was as if the very mention of the words "feast days" shocked him and caused him severe cognitive dissonance.
With that said, I want to warn you dear reader, don’t ever enlist your services against obeying God’s statutes/feast days as Danny Vierra did. I warn that If you do, you will make yourself an Enemy you can not defend against. I warn everyone, don’t teach against observing God's holy feast days/sabbath like my good friend Danny Vierra chose to do because without the statutes of Moses and especially the feast days which are statutes THERE IS NO HEALING and there is no covenant between you and God because you break the covenant when you reject God’s statutes and teach against them.
“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of Yahuah thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep ALL his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am Yahuah that healeth thee.” Exodus 15:26
"Don't ever think that I came to set aside Moses' Teachings or the Prophets. I didn't come to set them aside but to make them come true. I can guarantee this truth: Until the earth and the heavens disappear, neither a period nor a comma will disappear from Moses' Teachings before everything has come true. So whoever sets aside any command that seems unimportant and teaches others to do the same will be unimportant in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever does and teaches what the commands say will be called great in the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:17-19
MANY WARNINGS UNHEEDED
I have warned Danny many times for the last 23 years, telling him that Yahushua/Jesus didn't come to do away with the feast days as many popular Adventist televangelists teach today, but only the animal sacrifices ceased at the cross. In return for my diligent warnings motivated by a strong love of God's holy Torah, I was mocked, ridiculed and made fun of. I’m not telling you this because I want you to feel sorry for me or because I want you to rejoice at Danny’s downfall, I’m telling you this as a WARNING!! There is an end to mocking the statutes and feast days of God and the end thereof is the way of DEATH. If you love death, then just keep right on mocking the feast days of God just as Stephen Bohr, Ivor Myers, Doug Batchelor, Walter Veith, Danny Vierra, Bill Hughes and many, many other popular preachers do. Death is waiting at your door!! But if you want to live, then I suggest you repent TODAY before it is too late. Don’t wait for your pastor, friends, family, coworkers, ministerial director, conference president to accept God‘s holy feast days before you repent and step out in faith or you will die in your sins.
And just Remember, GOD IS NOT MOCKED. HE WILL REPAY. God promises to FORGET the children of those who FORGET His holy feast days and His’s holy statutes. God’s law is not restricted to just the Ten Commandments as most LYING Seventh-day Adventists teach from the pulpit.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law/torah of thy God, I will also FORGET THY CHILDREN.
Notice that Hosea does not tell us that the lawless priests and preachers will not have children but rather that God will FORGET the children of those who FORGET the law of God. The lawless may and often do have many, many children but they are all going to be destroyed as they are like salt without savor, good for nothing but to be trodden under the foot of men. The lawless teachers and pastors are teaching people to forget the obedient children of God who are being sanctified by faith and walking obediently to the three angels messages and the truth of the TORAH of God which is the commandments, statutes and judgments. To put Hosea 4:6 into a simple sentence God is saying to us "If you forget my children who reflect my character of loving obedience to my commandments, statutes and judgments, then I promise to forget your children who don't." And just a side note, the law of God is not limited to the ten commandments as many false teachers are teaching today in the Seventh-Day Adventist community.
It's eerie how similar the average Seventh-day Adventist teaches against the law of God as Rome the Antichrist system teaches. Isn't this the same thing as making an image to and wondering after the beast power of Rome and being drunk on the wine of the wrath of the fornication of the great whore of Babylon?
We as Seventh-day Adventists reveal in our seminars that the mark of the beast is to think to change God's laws and yet the majority of Seventh-day Adventist leaders and popular speakers openly teach the same doctrine as Rome but with a slight twist; that the Ten commandments and especially the seventh-day Sabbath have not been changed but the other laws concerning holy time specifically listed in Leviticus 23, originally instituted at creation in Genesis 1:14, have been changed and done away with at the cross.
This is why some true and faithful Seventh-day Adventists correctly call the denominational church the Seventh-day Catholic Church. Because most Seventh-day Adventists are drunk on the doctrine of the mother Harlot church called Rome and think that they can change God’s times and laws just as their mommy the catholic church does.
Seems to me like most Seventh-day Adventists are reflecting the image of the beast spoken of in Revelation 13:14 in their teaching on the law of God.
“And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
Danny Vierra, Charlotte Gerson and THE COFFEE ENEMA
In the last sermon I heard Danny deliver this last June, 2017 he informed his audience of the cancer therapies he was treating himself with, one of which was that he was giving himself 4 COFFEE ENEMAS A DAY. When I heard him say this I felt sick just thinking of how he was destroying himself with this extreme and ungodly regimen. Sadness came over me as I recall thinking to myself "So you are committing suicide."
At 47:13 into this video Danny
explains that he was giving himself 4 coffee enemas a day.
In 2015 I attended the Health and Healing Crusade in Lodi where once again, Charlotte Gerson was one of the guest speakers and was giving a presentation. Charlotte was always a guest speaker at these events since the very first one. Danny would sometimes affectionately introduce Charlotte to those in attendance as "my mother" and he spoke very highly of Charlotte. During this presentation I was sitting in the very back of the auditorium against the wall listening intently when Danny came and sat next to me. At this point in her presentation on cancer, Charlotte began highlighting the use of coffee enemas just as I had heard her do at every single HAHC since 1994. At this point I whispered to Danny "I tried doing a coffee enema one time and it got me so high that I could not sleep that night." At this, Danny suddenly stood to his feet and said "that is the first time I ever heard that!" and walked away in a huff.
I HATE CAFFINE AND COFFEE ENEMAS. I WAS FOOLISH ENOUGH TO EXPERIMENT WITH A COFFEE ENEMA ONE TIME AND I REGRETTED IT. I DID THE ENEMA AT TEN IN THE MORNING AND COULD NOT SLEEP ALL THAT NIGHT. DANNY VIERRA WAS A GREAT PROMOTER OF COFFEE ENEMAS EVEN THOUGH SISTER WHITE PLAINLY, SPECIFICALLY AND POINTEDLY SPOKE AGAINST THE USE OF COFFEE.
"Tea acts as a stimulant, and, to a certain extent, produces intoxication. The action of coffee and many other popular drinks is similar. The first effect is exhilarating. The nerves of the stomach are excited; these convey irritation to the brain, and this in turn is aroused to impart increased action to the heart, and short-lived energy to the entire system. Fatigue is forgotten, the strength seems to be increased. The intellect is aroused, the imagination becomes more vivid.CD 424.1 Because of these results, many suppose that their tea or coffee is doing them great good. But this is a mistake. Tea and coffee do not nourish the system. Their effect is produced before there has been time for digestion and assimilation, and what seems to be strength is only nervous excitement. When the influence of the stimulant is gone, the unnatural force abates, and the result is a corresponding degree of languor and debility.CD 424.2 The continued use of these nerve irritants is followed by headache, wakefulness, palpitation of the heart, indigestion, trembling, and many other evils, for they wear away the life forces. Tired nerves need rest and quiet instead of stimulation and overwork. Nature needs time to recuperate her exhausted energies. When her forces are goaded on by the use of stimulants, more will be accomplished for a time; but as the system becomes debilitated by their constant use, it gradually becomes more difficult to rouse the energies to the desired point. The demand for stimulants becomes more difficult to control, until the will is overborne, and there seems to be no power to deny the unnatural craving. Stronger and still stronger stimulants are called for, until exhausted nature can no longer respond.—The Ministry of Healing, 326, 327, 1905
THERE IS HOPE - WE CAN REPENT
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall HUMBLE themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their WICKED ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14
IS KEEPING THE FEAST DAYS A SALVATION ISSUE?
Invariably, whenever the subject of the feast days is discussed, there is always someone who asks "But John, are the feast days a salvation issue?" or they simply say "The feast days are not a salvation issue". In an effort to quiet their conscious they generate a theology to make themselves feel good and to relieve the cognitive dissonance they are experiencing by saying things like "It's not a salvation issue" which in the minds of most people means that it is a totally insignificant doctrine so why should we spend any time concerning ourselves with subjects of minutiae. They say things like "Why make a mountain out of a mole hill" or "you are majoring in minors". And to this I say, is it a minor thing to keep God's commandments? Who are we to make such a decision to decide that God's commanded feast days are of no importance for salvation and that they are insignificant?
WHAT DOES "WICKED" MEAN?
This brings to mind the passage from Psalms 119:155 where King David tells us...
“Salvation is far from the WICKED: for they seek not thy statutes.” Psalm 119:155
We see from this verse that God and the Bible tell us how to determine who is a “wicked” person. Wicked people are not always the obviously godless murderers, homosexuals, drug dealers, prostitutes, movie stars, politicians, human sex traffickers, pornographers, union racketeers, necromancers, child molesters etc. but are also those religious leaders that refuse to seek God’s statutes and who go so far as Danny Vierra did by not only ignoring God's holy feast days but teaching his children and anyone that would listen to him against observing God’s holy feast days/statutes.
Now I also need to make an effort here to help you understand that feast days are statutes per Leviticus 23:14, 21, 31, 41. People who don’t seek the feast days are LAWLESS/WICKED even if they look good preaching in the pulpit on Sabbath morning while teaching people to be raw food, vegan vegetarians.
Why professed Bible believers and health minded Christians would not be interested in enjoying seven wonderful vacations with God every year during His appointed times listed in Leviticus 23 is beyond me. Following Yahuah’s perfect blueprint is always the best way to live and worship Yahuwah. These holy days help us understand the plan of salvation as well as the prophecies in the Bible. But sadly, instead of coming aside and spending holy time with Yahushua, feast day haters observe the mark of the beast days of Satan holy, which have absolutely no foundation in Scripture whatsoever and actually have a degrading enervating effect upon those who observe the feast days of their father the Devil.
Here is a list of the mark of the beast days I’m talking about.
Sunday, Christmas, New Years, Easter, Valentines Day, Halloween, Birthdays etc. etc.
Deuteronomy 33:39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Ezekiel 16:31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.
DON'T LET ANY MAN OR GROUP OF MEN TAKE AWAY YOUR SALTINESS OR PUT OUT YOUR LIGHT OR TAKE YOUR CROWN. LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE ALL OVER THE NEIGHBORHOOD
In closing I want to encourage all people who love Yahuah and who seek and proclaim His commandments, statutes and and judgments and especially His feast days. Do not be ashamed. We serve a mighty God!! Keep teaching the truth and don’t fear the face of men or their mocking words and hateful speeches. Continue to fear Yahuah your maker and continue to seek FIRST His everlasting kingdom. You will not be ashamed.
“For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed. He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me. Behold, the Lord GOD will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.” Isaiah 50:7-9
"Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries." Exodus 23:20-22
"Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers: And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle. And Yahuah will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee. And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee." Deuteronomy 7:12-16
13Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. 17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Remember that just because all the powerful and popular shaven-faced Seveneth-day Adventist preachers and televangelists continue to preach and teach against obedience to ALL of God's statutes and especially the feast days, does not mean they are in the right. They are NOT reflective of God's true remnant Seventh-day Adventist church who do keep all the commandments, statutes and judgments. Just as in the time of Jesus, when there were few Israelites who walked in the light of Yahuah and when the religious leadership were the chief enemies of righteousness, so it is today in the Seventh-day Adventist church. The leadership are the chief offenders of God's law when they teach the abomination which maketh desolate which essentially their teaching is this "The law of Moses that teaches us what all the abominations are was nailed to the cross and done away with." This abominable teaching legalizes all the abominations that the law of Moses strictly forbids such as same sex relations, having sex with one's mother or daughter, having sex with animals, eating pork, shaving the beard, not keeping the feast days etc..
Don't allow the incredible opposition we endure cause you to loose heart. Just because all the big shots and movie-star televangelist leadership types triviaize the feast days and or specifically teach against them does not mean we are in the wrong. They will continue to brazenly do the work of their father the Devil and not the work of God our Father as they pretend to be doing. We must take courage and continue to do the good works of obedience to the Torah and glorify our Father which is in Heaven.
Remember that "..of all the gifts that Heaven can bestow upon men, fellowship with Christ in His sufferings is the most weighty trust and the highest honor." Desire of Ages 224.5
Today, as we soberly reflect upon and remember Danny Vierra's life during the good times as well as the bad times may we all take heed to this warning and never forget that it is a grave mistake to claim to be a healer for the Messiah's cause while simultaneously taking a bold and open stand against God's holy feast days and statutes and his prophets. To reject Christ's statutes/feast days is to reject Christ the Creator of the feast days. When you choose to do this, you leave Messiah outside knocking on the door of your heart. O how He longs to come in and FEAST with you and you with Him.
"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup/feast with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20
It's a good thing that good old Doug Batchelor was not there at the feast of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was poured out upon the obedient disciples, apostles and devout Jews from all over the then known world, because Doug would have talked them all out of obeying God and keeping the feast days which would have resulted in them loosing their eternal salvation and the whole world would have been doomed to eternal darkness.
At 53:45 into this sermon posted below, Doug's argument against observing God's immutable calendar of salvational feast days sounds really good and seeing he is such a polished speaker, I myself just want to go along with his erroneous position but if you are familiar with the specific language of the Bible you just have to call him on his lies. Please keep in mind that if I hated Doug I wouldn't take the time to call his or your attention to the subtle errors he teaches.
