I say along with Jeremiah the prophet "Woe is me! What sorrow is mine, my mother. Oh, that I had died at birth! I am hated everywhere I go. I am neither a lender who threatens to foreclose nor a borrower who refuses to pay--yet they all curse me.” Jeremiah 15:10

Please keep in mind when reading this article that I'm not condemning anyone, I'm simply confirming and endorsing God's justice, His prophets and His law.

Greetings in the great and wonderful name of Yahushua the Messiah (Jesus' original name),

It is so wonderful to serve a God that never changes and to know the truth that sets us free from all of Satan's lies about God.
I also thank God I have the history of the Bible to read every single day and that because of this great and awesome history book I am not easily led astray by subtle lies about God. It is because of my intimate relationship with the Bible and especially the five books of Moses that Pagan customs and traditions such as Christmas, Easter and Sunday worship stand out like a sore thumb!

I say with King David "The statutes of Yahuwah [are] right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of Yahuwah [is] pure, enlightening the eyes." Psalms 19:8 and with Isaiah I say "Bind up the testimony, seal the Torah among my disciples....  To the Torah and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, [it is] because [there is] no light in them." Isaiah 8:16, 20

When Priests in High Places
Speak out Against the Torah

Please notice that the word "TIMES" in Daniel 7:25 is plural which means that not only would the beast power of Daniel 7 think to change the weekly TIME but the annual TIMES as well. Satan, Rome and the Jesuits hate it when God's remnant people meet to worship their creator and fellowship with one another at the specific times specified in Leviticus 23 for Satan knows full well that when we do meet at these specific times we will be better educated to recognize his ever increasing delusions and deceptions and that we will be strengthened to withstand his temptations and eventually be sealed unto everlasting life when we spend more time with the Groom at His appointed times.


In a video presentation towards the end of this article Walter Veith talk tickles the ears of his awestruck fans by chopping the law into pieces. He discusses the "health laws" but conveniently forgets the passage from Exodus 15:26 which teaches that if we desire to avoid the diseases that God brought upon the Egyptians then we must keep ALL of the statutes listed in the law of God also known as the law of Moses.


Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD 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 the LORD that healeth thee.


Most Christians including many, many of my fellow Seventh-day Adventists do not take the time and effort to fast and study their Bibles with determination to discover for themselves what the word of God teaches. They are content to go to services once a week, listen to their pastors and agree with everything they say without thoroughly investigating the Scripture for themselves as if their very life depended on it. Because this is the case, most have not discovered that the Bible unambiguously teaches that it is the "wicked" that are teaching others that the statutes/feast days are "non essential for salvation" or "are not necessary to be observed in the New Testament era."


"Salvation [is] far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes."
Psalms 119:155


Here King David makes it plain as can possibly be that it is the wicked that do not seek the statutes and he also makes it certain that "salvation is far from the wicked." So King David's inspired words are of more value to the serious Bible student than any modern Bible teacher that teaches that we are no longer required to observe the statutes/feast days of God.

Definition of the word "statute"

Strong's Hebrew word number H2708
Feminine of H2706, and meaning substantially the same: - appointed, custom, manner, ordinance, site, statute.

From H2710; an enactment; hence an appointment (of time, space, quantity, labor or usage): - appointed, bound, commandment, convenient, custom, decree (-d), due, law, measure, X necessary, ordinance (-nary), portion, set time, statute, task.

We see here from Strong's definition of the word statute that the primary definition is "an appointment of time." So to say that one believes in the statutes while simultaneously rejecting the annual feast days is an oxymoron and an absolute impossibility. Also, along the same line of reasoning, to claim to obey the so called "health laws" while simultaneously teaching people to NOT keep the feast days is an oxymoronic concept and an impossibility because the feast days are health laws. It is always healthy to obey God and the commanded social interaction based upon Godly, Biblical principles that the feast days provide is one of the healthiest things we can possibly do.

Not all statutes are feast days but the feast days are definitely statutes

Leviticus Chapter 23 tells us four times that the feast days are statutes:

  1. 23:14 And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: [it shall be] a  statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
  1. 23:21 And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, [that] it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work [therein: it shall be] a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.
  1. 23:31 Ye shall do no manner of work: [it shall be] a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
  1. 23:41 And ye shall keep it a feast unto The Lord seven days in the year. [It shall be] a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

I believe it is more than a happenstance that the word statute is used 4 times in Leviticus chapter 23 when we consider that these statutes were given specifically to guard the fourth commandment of the Decalogue.

So the truth is that feast days are statutes but not all statutes are feast days and according to king David our salvation is absolutely connected to seeking the statutes/feast days.

Why is Ellen White's Understanding and Presentation of the Law of God So Different Than Walter Veith's and Doug Batchelor's???

Precepts Given to Guard Decalogue. -In consequence of continual transgression, the moral law was repeated in awful grandeur from Sinai. Christ gave to Moses religious precepts which were to govern everyday life. These statutes were explicitly given to guard the ten commandments. They were not shadowy types to pass away with the death of Christ. They were to be binding upon men in every age as long as time should last. These commands were enforced by the power of the moral law, and they clearly and definitely explained that law. 
(ST April 15, 1875 [Reprinted in RH May 6, 1875]). {1BC 1104.4}

Note: Upon examining the above quote we can safely conclude that the statutes and the ten commandments are two separate entities that work together for a common good. The statutes could be compared to the President's body guards and the Ten Commandments could be compared to the President. Just as the president always needs the protection of his body guards, so do the Ten Commandments always need the protection provided by the statutes. Furthermore, just as it would be dangerous to ignore or attack one of the President's bodyguards, so would it be very dangerous to attack or ignore any one of the statutes that were given to guard the Decalogue. So to claim fidelity to the fourth commandment of the Decalogue while simultaneously attacking or simply ignoring the statutes that were given to guard the fourth commandment, namely the feast days listed in Leviticus chapter 23, is like claiming respect for the President of the United States of America while simultaneously making a physical assault against any one of his bodyguards. In other words, anyone claiming to have respect for the fourth commandment of the Decalogue while simultaneously teaching against the observance of the annual Sabbath is a liar.

It was represented to me that the remnant followed Jesus into the most holy place and beheld the ark and the mercy seat, and were captivated with their glory. Jesus then raised the cover of the ark, and lo! the tables of stone, with the ten commandments written upon them. They trace down the lively oracles, but start back with trembling when they see the fourth commandment among the ten holy precepts, with a brighter light shining upon it than upon the other nine, and a halo of glory all around it. They find nothing there informing them that the Sabbath has been abolished, or changed to the first day of the week. The commandment reads as when spoken by the voice of God in solemn and awful grandeur upon the mount, while the lightnings flashed and the thunders rolled; it is the same as when written with His own finger on the tables of stone: “Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God.” They are amazed as they behold the care taken of the ten commandments. They see them placed close by Jehovah, overshadowed and protected by His holiness. They see that they have been trampling upon the fourth commandment of the Decalogue, and have observed a day handed down by the heathen and papists, instead of the day sanctified by Jehovah. They humble themselves before God and mourn over their past transgressions. – {EW 255.1}

"I saw that the holy Sabbath is, and will be, the separating wall between the true Israel of God and unbelievers, and that the Sabbath is the great question to unite the hearts of God's dear, waiting saints. I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They have not rejected the light upon it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully." Early Writings, p. 27

Please note:
We can easily understand from above quote why the feast days are such a point of contention between Adventists that do observe the feast days and Adventists that teach against them. This is because the Sabbath and the feast days stand or fall together and those Adventists that are using their voice and pen to teach against God's feast days are actually teaching against the weekly sabbath whether they realize it or not. Sadly, this doctrine of feast keeping has become a "separating wall between the true Israel of God and unbelievers," not because those of us that keep the feast days are building a wall of separation but because God Almighty is building a wall of separation between those who serve Him and those who serve Him not.

From time to time I have various friends and acquaintances ask me why it is that I place stronger emphasis upon the feast day statutes than I do upon other statutes listed in the Torah and my answer to this question is because God places a stronger emphasis upon the fourth commandment than he does upon the other nine and consequently the statutes that were given specifically to guard the fourth commandment deserve special emphasis as well. You see, it is not I that am placing special emphasis upon spending time with God when HE commands me to, but it is God Himself that places special emphasis upon our need of spending time with Him when He commands us to do so and Sr. White's vision proves this point.

"He did not even then trust His precepts to the memory of a people who were prone to forget His requirements, but wrote them upon tables of stone. He would remove from Israel all possibility of mingling heathen traditions with His holy precepts, or of confounding His requirements with human ordinances or customs. But He did not stop with giving them the precepts of the Decalogue. The people had shown themselves so easily led astray that He would leave no door of temptation unguarded. Moses was commanded to write, as God should bid him, judgments and laws giving minute instruction as to what was required. These directions relating to the duty of the people to God, to one another, and to the stranger were only the principles of the Ten Commandments amplified and given in a specific manner, that none need err. They were designed to guard the sacredness of the ten precepts engraved on the tables of stone. {PP 364.1}

People today are just as easily led astray as were the ancient Israelites so I can not understand why God's people today are so arrogant as to imagine that they don't need the same statutes that God used to close the doors of temptation that the ancient Israelites so desperately needed. It is absolutely absurd to imagine that we are somehow holier today than Israel was back then and that we can safely walk on Satan's territory without falling into the same temptations that God instituted statutes to protect the ancient Israelites from. "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." Proverbs 16:18

"During the thousand years between the first and the second resurrection, the Judgment of the wicked takes place. The apostle Paul points to this Judgment as an event that follows the second advent. "Judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts." [1 Corinthians 4:5.] Daniel declares that when the Ancient of days came, "Judgment was given to the saints of the Most High." [Daniel 7:22.] At this time the righteous reign as kings and priests unto God . John in the Revelation says: "I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them." "They shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years." [Revelation 20:4, 6; 1 Corinthians 6:2,3.] It is at this time that, as foretold by Paul, "the saints shall judge the world." [Revelation 20:4, 6; 1 Corinthians 6:2, 3.] In union with Christ they judge the wicked, comparing their acts with the statute book, the Bible, and deciding every case according to the deeds done in the body. Then the portion which the wicked must suffer is meted out, according to their works; and it is recorded against their names in the book of death." {GC88 660.3}


The above passage accurately describes the scenes of the judgment and explains in detail that those who love and obey Christ will walk in His statutes and will sit as judges with Christ of those who use their talents and influence to teach against the statutes like Walter Veith, Doug Batchelor and many, many bought and sold Seventh-day Adventist televangelists.
Those of us that sit as judges of the wicked statute breakers will be completely familiar with the statute book, the Bible and that is why we will be qualified to be judges with Christ and thus we will be capable of discerning the difference between good and evil, right and wrong, sweet and bitter, light and darkness. Without the statutes of God we are as good as blind dogs and can not judge anything according to God's will.
When we sit as judges we will sentence with absolute confidence and accuracy people like Walter Veith because they chose to teach others not to keep the statutes/feast days. All religious leaders that were paid by their awestruck fans to teach lies about God's statutes will burn the longest.

Due to the seriousness of this subject I can not overemphasize the importance of taking personal responsibility to become familiar with the statutes and brace yourself to face the opposition of 99.9% of all Seventh-day Adventists because almost all of them hate the statutes and follow their own customs and traditions rather than what the Bible and Ellen White clearly teach.

Please pray about this and consider standing with me as we teach the truth and expose satanic lies about God's law together.

When Satanic Lies are Taught by Adventist Leaders are We Not Obligated to Speak Out?!

Below quote is a description of the events to take place sometime in the future concerning those that fight against the statutes and persecute those of us that teach them. This passage explains that by the time most Seventh-day Adventists realize that people like Walter Veith and Doug Batchelor are lying to them about the statutes and the Sabbath more fully message, it will be forever too late. Their fate is already sealed and they will turn on Walter Veith, Doug Batchelor and all of their various pastors that reassured them that they did not need to listen to those of us that were teaching the statutes and the feast days but it will not do them any good because they are already condemned.

Ministers and people see that they have not sustained the right relation to God. They see that they have rebelled against the Author of all just and righteous law. The setting aside of the divine precepts gave rise to thousands of springs of evil, discord, hatred, iniquity, until the earth became one vast field of strife, one sink of corruption. This is the view that now appears to those who rejected truth and chose to cherish error. No language can express the longing which the disobedient and disloyal feel for that which they have lost forever, --eternal life. Men whom the world has worshiped for their talents and eloquence now see these things in their true light. They realize what they have forfeited by transgression, and they fall at the feet of those whose fidelity they have despised and derided, and confess that God has loved them. {GC88 655.3}
The people see that they have been deluded. They accuse one another of having led them to destruction; but all unite in heaping their bitterest condemnation upon the ministers. Unfaithful pastors have prophesied smooth things; they have led their hearers to make void the law of God and to persecute those who would keep it holy. Now, in their despair, these teachers confess before the world their work of deception. The multitudes are filled with fury. "We are lost!" they cry, "and you are the cause of our ruin;" and they turn upon the false shepherds. The very ones that once admired them most, will pronounce the most dreadful curses upon them. The very hands that once crowned them with laurels will be raised for their destruction. The swords which were to slay God's people are now employed to destroy their enemies. Everywhere there is strife and bloodshed. {GC88 655.4}

Below video footage accurately depicts what is coming to all the deceptive Seventh-day Adventist pastors and televangelists that continue to fight against God's statutes and feast days by teaching the long cherished lie that Jesus came to abolished His own law.

God is now testing and proving His people. Character is being developed. Angels are weighing moral worth, and keeping a faithful record of all the acts of the children of men. Among God's professed people are corrupt hearts; but they will be tested and proved. That God who reads the hearts of everyone, will bring to light hidden things of darkness where they are often least suspected, that stumbling blocks which have hindered the progress of truth may be removed, and God have a clean and holy people to declare His statutes and judgments. {1T 332.3} 
The Captain of our salvation leads His people on step by step, purifying and fitting them for translation, and leaving in the rear those who are disposed to draw off from the body, who are not willing to be led, and are satisfied with their own righteousness.

The above statement makes it abundantly clear that those who teach against the statutes and judgment message are satisfied with their own righteousness.

The sacred statutes which Satan has hated and sought to destroy, will be honored throughout a sinless universe (Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 342).


In seeking to cast contempt upon the divine statutes, Satan has perverted the doctrines of the Bible, and errors have thus become incorporated into the faith of thousands who profess to believe the Scriptures. The last great conflict between truth and error is but the final struggle of the long-standing controversy concerning the law of God. Upon this battle we are now entering—a battle between the laws of men and the precepts of The Lord, between the religion of the Bible and the religion of fable and tradition. {GC 582.2}

To the very close of the controversy in heaven, the great usurper continued to justify himself. When it was announced that with all his sympathizers he must be expelled from the abode of bliss, then the rebel leader boldly avowed his contempt for the Creator's law. He denounced the divine statutes as a restriction of their liberty, and declared that it was his purpose to secure the abolition of law. With one accord, Satan and his host threw the blame of their rebellion wholly upon Messiah, declaring that if they had not been reproved, they would never have rebelled. {GC 499.2}

When my fellow Seventh-day Adventists teach that the feast days are restricting their liberty in Christ the above passage always comes to mind. They are simply carrying forward Satan's original rebellion he began in heaven against God's statutes whether they know it or not.

When error in one garb has been detected, Satan only masks it in a different disguise, and multitudes receive it as eagerly as at the first. When the people found Romanism to be a deception, and he could not through this agency lead them to transgression of God's law, he urged them to regard all religion as a cheat, and the Bible a fable; and casting aside the divine statutes, they gave themselves up to unbridled iniquity. {GC 285.1} 

The discord which his own course had caused in Heaven, Satan charged upon the law and government of God. All evil he declared to be the result of the divine administration. He claimed that it was his own object to improve upon the statutes of The Lord. Therefore it was necessary that he should demonstrate the nature of his claims, and show the working out of his proposed changes in the divine law. His own work must condemn him. Satan had claimed from the first that he was not in rebellion. The whole universe must see the deceiver unmasked. {GC88 498.2}

When my fellow Seventh-day Adventists tell me that their camp meetings are an adequate substitute for the feast days commanded by God in Leviticus chapter 23, the above passage always comes to mind. Certainly an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent God does not need his creatures to improve upon his statutes anymore than He needed Satan to improve upon them.

In this age of the world, when Satan is seeking, through manifold agencies, to blind the eyes of men and women to the binding claims of the law of God, there is need of men who can cause many to "tremble at the commandment of our God" (Ezra 10:3). There is need of true reformers, who will point transgressors to the great Lawgiver and teach them that "the law of The Lord is perfect, converting the soul" (Psalm 19:7). There is need of men mighty in the Scriptures, men whose every word and act exalts the statutes of The Lord, men who seek to strengthen faith. Teachers are needed, oh, so much, who will inspire hearts with reverence and love for the Scriptures. {PK 623.4}

By the translation of Enoch The Lord designed to teach an important lesson. There was danger that men would yield to discouragement, because of the fearful results of Adam's sin. Many were ready to exclaim, "What profit is it that we have feared The Lord and have kept His ordinances, since a heavy curse is resting upon the race, and death is the portion of us all?" But the instructions which God gave to Adam, and which were repeated by Seth, and exemplified by Enoch, swept away the gloom and darkness, and gave hope to man, that as through Adam came death, so through the promised Redeemer would come life and immortality. Satan was urging upon men the belief that there was no reward for the righteous or punishment for the wicked, and that it was impossible for men to obey the divine statutes. But in the case of Enoch, God declares "that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him." Hebrews 11:6. He shows what He will do for those who keep His commandments. Men were taught that it is possible to obey the law of God; that even while living in the midst of the sinful and corrupt, they were able, by the grace of God, to resist temptation, and become pure and holy. They saw in his example the blessedness of such a life; and his translation was an evidence of the truth of his prophecy concerning the hereafter, with its award of joy and glory and immortal life to the obedient, and of condemnation, woe, and death to the transgressor. {PP 88.2}

From the first the great controversy had been upon the law of God. Satan had sought to prove that God was unjust, that His law was faulty, and that the good of the universe required it to be changed. In attacking the law he aimed to overthrow the authority of its Author. In the controversy it was to be shown whether the divine statutes were defective and subject to change, or perfect and immutable. {PP 69.1}

Says the prophet, "When Thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. Let favor be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness, . . . and will not behold the majesty of The Lord." Isaiah 26:9, 10. Thus it was after the Flood. Released from His judgments, the inhabitants of the earth again rebelled against The Lord. Twice God's covenant and His statutes had been rejected by the world. Both the people before the Flood and the descendants of Noah cast off the divine authority. Then God entered into covenant with Abraham, and took to Himself a people to become the depositaries of His law. To seduce and destroy this people, Satan began at once to lay his snares. The children of Jacob were tempted to contract marriages with the heathen and to worship their idols. But Joseph was faithful to God, and his fidelity was a constant testimony to the true faith. It was to quench this light that Satan worked through the envy of Joseph's brothers to cause him to be sold as a slave in a heathen land. God overruled events, however, so that the knowledge of Himself should be given to the people of Egypt. Both in the house of Potiphar and in the prison Joseph received an education and training that, with the fear of God, prepared him for his high position as prime minister of the nation. From the palace of the Pharaohs his influence was felt throughout the land, and the knowledge of God spread far and wide. The Israelites in Egypt also became prosperous and wealthy, and such as were true to God exerted a widespread influence. The idolatrous priests were filled with alarm as they saw the new religion finding favor. Inspired by Satan with his own enmity toward the God of heaven, they set themselves to quench the light. To the priests (church leaders)was committed the education of the heir to the throne, and it was this spirit of determined opposition to God and zeal for idolatry that molded the character of the future monarch, and led to cruelty and oppression toward the Hebrews. {PP 332.2} 
During the forty years after the flight of Moses from Egypt, idolatry seemed to have conquered. Year by year the hopes of the Israelites grew fainter. Both king and people exulted in their power, and mocked the God of Israel. This grew until it culminated in the Pharaoh who was confronted by Moses. When the Hebrew leader came before the king with a message from "The Lord, God of Israel," it was not ignorance of the true God, but defiance of His power, that prompted the answer, "Who is The Lord, that I should obey His voice? . . . I know not The Lord." From first to last, Pharaoh's opposition to the divine command was not the result of ignorance, but of hatred and defiance. {PP 333.1}

Never has there been a time when men were safe 
to cherish hatred and defiance of God. We all need
to humble ourselves today and ask God to help us
understand his statutes, the same statutes that Satan
has been warring against ever since his rebellion in heaven.

God 's dealings with rebellion will result in fully unmasking the work that has so long been carried on under cover. The results of Satan's rule, the fruits of setting aside the divine statutes, will be laid open to the view of all created intelligences. The law of God will stand fully vindicated. It will be seen that all the dealings of God have been conducted with reference to the eternal good of His people, and the good of all the worlds that He has created. Satan himself, in the presence of the witnessing universe, will confess the justice of God 's government and the righteousness of His law. {PP 338.4}

The records of sacred history declare, that while God is a God of justice, strict to mark iniquity, and strong to punish the sinner, he is also a God of truth, compassion, and abundant mercy. While he visits judgments upon the transgressors of his law and the enemies of his people, he will protect those who respect his statutes and show kindness to his chosen.{ST, August 24, 1882 par. 17}

Dear Reader, 
Do you desire to escape the coming plagues that will destroy all those that fight against the truth as it is in Messiah? Then please heed this warning given in sincerity and brotherly concern. Stop fighting against the statute message with the feast days. Take a stand with Yahuwah and His people and against Satan and his forces. Begin studying and teaching the Eliyah message mentioned in the book of Malachi chapter 4 today. I am not looking forward to witnessing your destruction by the plagues and again after the second resurrection in the lake fire simply because you were too proud to admit that you were falsely educated by your leaders.
Please allow our loving heavenly Father to protect you from the plagues of Egypt by yielding your flawed understanding of truth to the real thing. Fall on the Rock and be broken or the Rock will fall upon you and grind you to powder! Matthew 21:44 It will not be a pretty picture on judgment day if you continue to harden your heart against this timely and important truth. Please take note and pray about it. God can put a hedge around us and protect us like he did for Job, but if we continue to fight against his laws we will forfeit his divine protection. Remember that God is not mocked.

A Few Examples of New Testament Feast Keeping After the Cross (God Never Changes)

Below is an example of what God can do when we yield our will to his will, obey Him and keep the feast days as God commanded us to.

Acts chapter 2:1-8

" And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? ."

Just as The Holy Spirit was poured out upon the disciples on the feast of Shavuot/Pentecost AFTER THE CROSS, so will the Holy Spirit be poured out upon us sometime in the future if we continue to keep the feast days today. Likewise, commonsense also tells me that if we do not continue to obey God and keep the feast days then we will not receive the Holy Spirit as obedience to God is an absolute prerequisite to receiving the Holy Spirit.

"And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him." Acts 5:32

Messiah Kept The Feast of Unleavened Bread After the Cross

On the day Jesus resurrected he entered into the house of his disciples and blessed the bread they were eating which happened to be unleavened bread because it was during the feast of unleavened bread and they would not have had any other type of bread upon their table except for unleavened bread. Read Exodus chapter 12:15-20 for clarification.

"Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. And in the first day [there shall be] an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save [that] which every man must eat, that only may be done of you. And ye shall observe [the feast of] unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever. In the first [month], on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land. Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread."

The feast days were kept by Yahushua after he died and resurrected which proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus did not abolish the feast days or "nail them to the cross." By his own actions of blessing the unleavened bread on the day of his resurrection he demonstrated that God never changes and neither does his law or the times that he commands his children to meet with him and each other in accordance with Leviticus 23.

"But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed [it], and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight." Luke 24:29-31

When reading the below passages remember that all of this took place AFTER the cross and that the Jews would never have placed leavened bread upon their tables during the feast of unleavened bread. In fact, they would not have had leavening anywhere in their entire home because it was forbidden by the same law that Doug Batchelor teaches was nailed to the cross and done away with. Please keep in mind that this meal was eaten AFTER the cross and never did Jesus tell his disciples that it was no longer required to observe the feast of unleavened bread.

"And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. Luke 24:30, 31. {CTr 297.1}

The simple evening meal of bread is prepared. It is placed before the Guest, and He puts forth His hands to bless the food. Why do the disciples start back in astonishment? Their companion spreads forth His hands in exactly the same way as their Master used to do. They look again, and lo, they see in His hands the print of nails. Both exclaim at once, It is the Lord Jesus. He has risen from the dead. {CTr 297.2}
They rise to cast themselves at His feet and worship Him. But He has vanished out of their sight. They look at the space that had been occupied by One whose body had lately lain in the grave, and say to each other, "Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and which he opened to us the scriptures?" {CTr 297.3}

By His actions and example Yahushua sanctioned and encouraged the continued celebration of the feast of unleavened bread in the new testament era by blessing and breaking the unleavened bread that was on the table of the disciples after he was crucified and resurrected. Seeing that after His resurrection Yahushua/Jesus continued to keep the feast of unleavened bread and blessed the celebration of the feast of unleavened bread, why should we do any different?

So even though I am in the minority in my beliefs on this subject among my Seventh-say Adventist brethren, I have purposed in my heart to continue to follow Jesus' example and keep the feast days just like He did AFTER THE CROSS.

The Apostle Paul and the Feast Days

What my fellow Seventh-day Adventists seem to conveniently forget is that the apostle Paul (their favorite "anti feast day teacher") taught us very clearly that we should keep the feast days. Here are a couple of examples

"Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth." 1 Corinthians 5:8

If we read 1 Corinthians chapter 5 in context Paul was encouraging the Corinthians to keep the feast of unleavened bread but not while fornicating with one's own stepmother. Believers in the Messiah should never behave worse than the heathens during any season of the year but especially during the feast of unleavened bread! Therefore we should celebrate the feast of unleavened bread but we should celebrate it with "clean hands and a pure heart." Psalms 24:4
Walter Veith, Doug Batchelor and the Feast Days
""According to the SDA Bible Commentary, the tensing of the Greek word translated "keep" in the phrase, "Therefore let us keep the feast," is "continue keeping." (S.D.A. Bible Commentary, vol. 6, page 691) Therefore, the phrase should read, "Therefore let us continue keeping the feast [of Unleavened Bread]." The idea of the "continuation" of keeping the Feast of Unleavened Bread asserts that there was an already existing observance of the Feast of Unleavened Bread which is to "continue.""Stephen W. Kraner

"He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked." 1 John 2:6
Walter Veith, Doug Batchelor and the Feast Days
We must remember Yahushua/Jesus never told the Pharisees to stop being Pharisees, He simply wanted them to place proper emphasis upon loving their neighbor as themselves and obeying all of Moses' law and not just the smaller issues like tithing their herb garden.

"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices--mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law--justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former." Matthew 23:23
Walter Veith, Doug Batchelor and the Feast Days
"And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days." Acts 20:6 

"At Philippi Paul tarried to keep the Passover. Only Luke remained with him, the other members of the company passing on to Troas to await him there. The Philippians were the most loving and truehearted of the apostle's converts, and during the eight days of the feast he enjoyed peaceful and happy communion with them." {AA 390.4}  

After Paul kept the feast of unleavened bread with his Gentile Philippian converts he wrote them and told them to continue to follow his example.  
Walter Veith, Doug Batchelor and the Feast Days
"Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you." Phil 4:9  

My fellow Adventists also seem to conveniently overlook the fact that the Apostle Paul told us in unambiguous words that the Jews are ADVANTAGED in EVERY way. 

"What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit [is there] of circumcision? Much EVERY way: CHIEFLY, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God." Romans 3:1-2  
Walter Veith, Doug Batchelor and the Feast Days
When I listen to the various Seventh-day Adventist televangelists speak, in general it sounds like they read Paul to say that the Jews are DISADVANTAGED in EVERY way and CHIEFLY because they keep the feast days. In reality, the feast days are what give the Jews the advantage Paul is talking about because the feast days allow the Jews to spend more time with God and this is why Satan hates it when God's true, remnant people celebrate the feast days,
and he uses the leaders of the Seventh-day Adventist corporate structure to shame us for doing so. Sadly, these "holy" men of the cloth sing "JUST A CLOSER WALK WITH THEE" and then teach against the observance of the very divine worship institutions given by God to help us have that closer walk! As our Messiah reminded us "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." If this is true, and it most certainly is, then those preachers that tell us that we no longer need to walk in the statutes of the Torah, which proceeded directly from the mouth of God (Deuteronomy 5:31) .........have deprived us of the necessities of life. In other words, they are murderers doing the very work of their father the Devil who was a murderer from the beginning. (John 8:44)

So my summary of Walter Veith's presentation is that he is doing the work of "the wicked" by teaching against the statutes. He is deceiving the flock of God and leaving them wide open to receive the diseases that God brought upon the Egyptians.

After pondering the subject of feast keeping for 22 years I came to the rock solid conclusion that if Jesus kept the feast days before and after the cross and the apostles kept the feast days both before and after the cross, which they did, then as a disciple of Jesus I have no other choice but to follow the worthy example of Christ and His Apostles no matter what anybody in the church teaches.
Walter Veith, Doug Batchelor and the Feast Days
"In seeking to cast contempt upon the divine statutes, Satan has perverted the doctrines of the Bible, and errors have thus become incorporated into the faith of thousands who profess to believe the Scriptures. The last great conflict between truth and error is but the final struggle of the long-standing controversy concerning the law of God. Upon this battle we are now entering,—a battle between the laws of men and the precepts of Jehovah, between the religion of the Bible and the religion of fable and tradition." {GC88 582.2}

Dear Reader,
Are you continuing in the work of casting contempt u[on the divine statutes just as Satan does? Do you cherish a contemptuous attitude towards people that are teaching the eternal nature of God's government, calendar and annual festivals that point to the Master healer and festival creator? It is my prayer that this letter will help you realize that when people reject the feast days, the only festivals ever instituted by God that you are actually rejecting your Creator and not just the people that are promoting these timely truths.

Here is the pathetic video presentation by Walter Veith on the subject of the feast days.

Examinations Of Verses Commonly Quoted By Christians To Refute The Seventh-Day Sabbath and the Annual Sabbaths

"Keeping the Sabbath Days And Annual Biblical Festivals Holy is Not a Doctrine of Men

By Harold & Donna Kupp (condensed and edited by Daniel Botkin)

Paul was not doing away with God's commandment; he was warning against the false teachers who were saying believers must keep the festivals, new moons, and Sabbaths according to certain human regulations. The question we need to ask is this: Was Paul condemning the Sabbath day, or was he condemning the doctrines of men who added ritualistic and ascetic restrictions to faith in Christ?

In order to answer that dispute, one must look at the broad picture. There is not a single verse in the New Testament which states that Paul taught a new doctrine that canceled the Sabbath commandment; nor is there any record of a controversy between the Jews and Gentile Christians over Sabbath-keeping. If Paul had been teaching that the Sabbath commandment had been repealed, it would have split the Church wide open, and he would have had to answer the objections continuously in his epistles. Think about it. If the Jewish believers made such a fuss about circumcision being optional, imagine what they would have said about the Sabbath day being revoked.

At some point we must use common sense and reason to interpret what has been written. For example, does "Let no man judge you in meat and drink" mean that Christians can be gluttons and drunkards? Of course not, because you know that God's Word forbids gluttony and drunkenness. Well, it also forbids Sabbath-breaking!

It is only logical to assume that if God was going to cancel one of His Ten Commandments, He would make that fact very clear. Surely, if someone said to you, Let no man judge you in respect of murder or adultery you would not assume that God had changed His mind about those sins without solid proof. Certainly, you would demand more evidence than one lonely verse in the book of Colossians. Or would you?

In addition to the Greek and Latin manuscripts of the New Testament, there is a third text called the Peshitta. The Peshitta (the oldest dated manuscript known) is from ancient Eastern manuscripts written in Aramaic, the natural language of Jesus. Hebrews 4:9 in the Peshitta text reads: It is therefore the duty of the people of God to keep the Sabbath."

When Satanic Lies Are Taught by Adventist Leaders...... Are They Still Not Satanic Lies?

Sadly in the below video Doug Batchelor teaches the exact opposite of what Christ taught and completely ignores Jesus' words. To understand why Jesus said what he said in Matthew 5:17-20 we must know that many people were suspecting that Jesus came to challenge the religion of his day which was based not only upon the Ten Commandments as Doug falsely teaches but the religion of Jesus' day was based upon the first five books of the Bible also known as the Torah or Moses' law.

"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. I can guarantee that unless you live a life that has God's approval and do it more faithfully than the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."

So the question we have to ask ourselves is who are we engaged to, Satan or Yahushua? If we are planning to be wedded to the Messiah then we need to make every effort to meet with him at his appointed wedding rehearsals listed in Leviticus chapter 23, but if we are planning to continue being two faced fornicating dogs all we need is to keep right on running the dog race chasing Satan's sausage dangling in front of us with all the other two faced fornicating dogs in the race and keep ignoring Yahushua's engagement celebrations and keep right on celebrating Satan's fornication festivals.

Ellen White's commentary on Matthew 5:17

"On the mount, Jesus was closely watched by spies; and as He unfolded the principles of righteousness, the Pharisees caused it to be whispered about that His teaching was in opposition to the precepts that God had given from Sinai. The Saviour said nothing to unsettle faith in the religion and institutions that had been given through Moses; for every ray of divine light that Israel's great leader communicated to his people was received from Christ. While many are saying in their hearts that He has come to do away with the law, Jesus in unmistakable language reveals His attitude toward the **divine statutes**.
"Think not," He said, "that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets." {MB 47.1}
It is the Creator of men, the Giver of the law, who declares that it is not His purpose to set aside its precepts. Everything in nature, from the mote in the sunbeam to the worlds on high, is under law. And upon obedience to these laws the order and harmony of the natural world depend. So there are great principles of righteousness to control the life of all intelligent beings, and upon conformity to these principles the well-being of the universe depends. Before this earth was called into being, God's law existed. Angels are governed by its principles, and in order for earth to be in harmony with heaven, man also must obey the **divine statutes**. To man in Eden Christ made known the precepts of the law "when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy." Job 38:7. The mission of Christ on earth was not to destroy the law, but by His grace to bring man back to obedience to its precepts. {MB 48.1}
The beloved disciple, who listened to the words of Jesus on the mount, writing long afterward under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, speaks of the law as of perpetual obligation. He says that "sin is the transgression of the law" and that "whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law." 1 John 3:4. He makes it plain that the law to which he refers is "an old commandment which ye had from the beginning." 1 John 2:7. He is speaking of the law that existed at the creation and was reiterated upon Mount Sinai. {MB 48.2}
Speaking of the law, Jesus said, "I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill." He here used the word "fulfill" in the same sense as when He declared to John the Baptist His purpose to "fulfill all righteousness" (Matthew 3:15); that is, to fill up the measure of the law's requirement, to give an example of perfect conformity to the will of God. {MB 48.3}
His mission was to "magnify the law, and make it honorable." Isaiah 42:21. He was to show the spiritual nature of the law, to present its far-reaching principles, and to make plain its eternal obligation. {MB 49.1}
The divine beauty of the character of Christ, of whom the noblest and most gentle among men are but a faint reflection; of whom Solomon by the Spirit of inspiration wrote, He is "the chiefest among ten thousand, . . . yea, He is altogether lovely" (Song of Solomon 5:10-16); of whom David, seeing Him in prophetic vision, said, "Thou art fairer than the children of men" (Psalm 45:2); Jesus, the express image of the Father's person, the effulgence of His glory; the self-denying Redeemer, throughout His pilgrimage of love on earth, was a living representation of the character of the law of God. In His life it is made manifest that heaven-born love, Christlike principles, underlie the laws of eternal rectitude. {MB 49.2}
"Till heaven and earth pass," said Jesus, "one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." By His own obedience to the law, Christ testified to its immutable character and proved that through His grace it could be perfectly obeyed by every son and daughter of Adam. On the mount He declared that not the smallest iota should pass from the law till all things should be accomplished--all things that concern the human race, all that relates to the plan of redemption. He does not teach that the law is ever to be abrogated, but He fixes the eye upon the utmost verge of man's horizon and assures us that until this point is reached the law will retain its authority so that none may suppose it was His mission to abolish the precepts of the law. So long as heaven and earth continue, the holy principles of God's law will remain. His righteousness, "like the great mountains" (Psalm 36:6), will continue, a source of blessing, sending forth streams to refresh the earth. {MB 49.3}
Because the law of the Lord is perfect, and therefore changeless, it is impossible for sinful men, in themselves, to meet the standard of its requirement. This was why Jesus came as our Redeemer. It was His mission, by making men partakers of the divine nature, to bring them into harmony with the principles of the law of heaven. When we forsake our sins and receive Christ as our Saviour, the law is exalted. The apostle Paul asks, "Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law." Romans 3:31. {MB 50.1}

"Forever, O Lord, Thy word is settled in heaven." "All His commandments are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness." "Concerning Thy testimonies, I have known of old that Thou hast founded them forever." Psalm 119:89; 111:7, 8; Psalm 119:152. {MB 51.1}
"Whosoever . . . shall break one of these least
commandments, and shall teach men so,
he shall be called the least in the kingdom
of heaven." Matthew 5:19.

That is, he shall have no place therein. For he who willfully breaks one commandment, does not, in spirit and truth, keep any of them. "Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." James 2:10. {MB 51.2}


In the above video presentation Doug Batchelor specifically teaches that the entire law written by Moses was nailed to the cross and done away with at the cross of Calvary. This is a bold faced lie and is flat out contradicted by James, Paul, Ellen G. White and Jesus Himself.
At 4 minutes 40 seconds into his presentation is where Doug begins to build for his listeners a refuge of lies but he really steps it up at 42 minutes and 40 seconds into his presentation. Please keep in mind that the more Doug lies about this particular subject the more money his supporters send him. Dollars, popularity and fame are what motivates Doug to perpetuate the lies he teaches against the statutes of God.
Doug's teaches his awestruck and virtually hypnotized fans that the annual feast days "were shadows" when in reality the Bible says that the feast days, including the weekly Sabbath, "ARE shadows of things TO COME". A basic understanding of English makes it simple to understand that the word "were" indicates past tense and the word "are" indicates present and future tense.

Below is the passage that Doug misquotes.

"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath [days]:
Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body [is] of Christ."
Colossians 2:16-17

BEWARE!! Don not be a follower of men as no rickety refuge of lies will succeed in protecting you from the wrath of God when the seven last plagues begin to pour out upon the wicked statute breakers. Don't let any man steal your crown!! Not even Doug Batchelor!

Closing Thoughts

Are You a Virgin Awaiting The Ultimate Wedding Feast or a Two-Faced Fornicating, Adulterous Bitch Whore? You tell Me!

In contrast to the holy days listed in Leviticus chapter 23 that God has established for His Bride to rehearse in preparation for the ultimate wedding of all history, Satan has masterminded a counterfeit set of convocations such as Birthday parties, Sunday celebration, Christmas celebration, New Years Celebration, Easter celebration, etc. etc. These counterfeit celebrations can be likened to the modern day, sexually charged Batchelor-ette (pun intended) parties where the bridesmaids hire a male stripper/dog to dance and strip his clothes off for the bride and all her fornicating girlfriends. These counterfeit holidays serve the purpose of seducing Yahuwah's Bride while simultaneously instructing her and her bridesmaids to proclaim with wondereful power that they are chaste virgins waiting patiently for their marriage to Christ when in reality they are two faced bitches fornicating with the very arch enemy of the Groom.

"And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire." Revelation 17:16

"And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire." Leviticus 21:9

Why Christian Evangelists That Teach or Sympathize With Pagan Holidays
Have Bad Breath

Mixing something bad into something good makes it all bad. If you don't believe me try mixing dog manure into cookie dough. Likewise, when the good and wholesome statutes in the Bible are mixed up with the bad traditions of men and other pagan/heathen customs it is like mixing dog manure into unleavened bread.
What I'm attempting to do is help people realize that Christmas is not mentioned in the Bible even one time and yet all of Christianity bows down and worships other gods by celebrating the holidays of other gods while simultaneously completely ignoring Yahuwah's commanded holydays listed in Leviticus 23. In writing this article I am doing my best to warn Christians to flee from these Pagan customs so that they will receive the supernatural protection that can ONLY be provided for those that refuse to mix the manure of pagan/heathen customs in with the pure religion of the Bible.
If a well spoken, well dressed, internationally renowned evangelist with a great reputation such as Doug Batchelor or Walter Veith came to your church and offered you unleavened bread that you knew was tainted with dog manure would you still eat it? I sure hope not. Even so the old serpent Satan has cunningly injected deadly demonic teachings into the doctrines of the church and superstar evangelists serve his tainted doctrines up daily and they are readily and eagerly chewed and swallowed even though it can be easily proven that these teachings are lies prepared in Satan's kitchen.
We do not have to eat tainted bread because God in His infinite wisdom has prepared for us wonderful unleavened holidays that fulfill the heart's desire for wholesome social engagement and family interaction, all within the confines of God's holy Torah. The God we serve is not socially challenged and does not need His children to invent their own set of counterfeit holidays that give them bad breath, parasites and a stomach ache. We do not need to cave in to social pressure and eat the tainted bread as our favorite evangelist meanders through the dining hall serving each table with a smile. We do not have to follow along with the crowd. Now is the time to cry aloud and tell everyone everywhere that the bread is tainted and that Christ has wholesome, healthy unleavened bread that has been purchased with the invaluable price of His own blood! Why should we continue eating tainted bread when Yahushua is placing upon the table the healthiest preparation of unleavened bread that heals the soul and grants eternal life?

Religion in the Home.--The light esteem in which the law of God is held, even by religious leaders, has been productive of great evil. The teaching which has become so wide-spread that the divine statutes are no longer binding upon men, is the same as idolatry in its effect upon the morals of the people. Those who seek to lessen the claims of God's holy law are striking directly at the foundation of the government of families and nations. Religious parents, failing to walk in his statutes, do not command their household to keep the way of the Lord. The law of God is not made the rule of life. The children, as they make homes of their own, feel under no obligation to teach their children what they themselves have never been taught. And this is why there are so many godless families; this is why depravity is so deep and wide-spread. {CE 220.1}

In this fearful time, just before Christ is to come the second time, God's faithful preachers will have to bear a still more pointed testimony than was borne by John the Baptist. A responsible, important work is before them; and those who speak smooth things, God will not acknowledge as his shepherds. A fearful woe is upon them. Vol. 1, p. 321. {GW92 90.1}

Christmas is a Lie

As Nebuchadnezzar tried to force his subjects to obey his mandates, so men will try to force us to disregard the Word of God. They will endeavor to compel us to render homage to man-made statutes; but in God's strength we are to refuse to dishonor him. The laws of earthly kingdoms are to be obeyed only when they do not conflict with the laws of God. When governments are tyrannical and overbearing, when they trample on God's law, their laws are contemptible in his sight. And when they try to control the minds and consciences of those whom Christ died to make free, God's children are to show their loyalty to him by refusing to disobey his commandments. {ST, May 13, 1897 par. 8}

Prophecy is Being Fulfilled as We
Proclaim the "Sabbath More Fully"

I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They have not rejected the light upon it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully. [SEE PAGE 85.] This enraged the churches and nominal Adventists, [SEE ALSO APPENDIX.] as they could not refute the Sabbath truth. And at this time God's chosen all saw clearly that we had the truth, and they came out and endured the persecution with us. I saw the sword, famine, pestilence, and great confusion in the land. The wicked thought that we had brought the judgments upon them, and they rose up and took counsel to rid the earth of us, thinking that then the evil would be stayed. {EW 33.2}
Sister White continues to explain....
Dear Christian Friends: As I have given a brief sketch of my experience and views, published in 1851, it seems to be my duty to notice some points in that little work, also to give more recent views. {EW 85.1}
1. On page 33 is given the following: "I saw that the holy Sabbath is, and will be, the separating wall between the true Israel of God and unbelievers; and that the Sabbath is the great question to unite the hearts of God's dear, waiting saints. I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They have not rejected the light upon it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully." {EW 85.2}
This view was given in 1847 when there were but very few of the Advent brethren observing the Sabbath, and of these but few supposed that its observance was of sufficient importance to draw a line between the people of God and unbelievers. Now the fulfilment of that view is beginning to be seen. "The commencement of that time of trouble," here mentioned does not refer to the time when the plagues shall begin to be poured out, but to a short period just before they are poured out, while Christ is in the sanctuary. At that time, while the work of salvation is closing, trouble will be coming on the earth, and the nations will be angry, yet held in check so as not to prevent the work of the third angel. At that time the "latter rain," or refreshing from the presence of the Lord, will come, to give power to the loud voice of the third angel, and prepare the saints to stand in the period when the seven last plagues shall be poured out."

Many Adventists Brace
Themselves Against the Light

There is to be in the [Seventh-day Adventist] churches a wonderful manifestation of the power of God, but it will not move upon those who have not humbled themselves before the Lord, and opened the door of the heart by confession and repentance. In the manifestation of that power which lightens the earth with the glory of God, they will see only something which in their blindness they think dangerous, something which will arouse their fears, and they will brace themselves to resist it. Because the Lord does not work according to their ideas and expectations they will oppose the work. "Why," they say, "should we not know the Spirit of God, when we have been in the work so many years?"--RH Extra, Dec. 23, 1890. {LDE 209.3}
The third angel's message will not be comprehended, the light which will lighten the earth with its glory will be called a false light, by those who refuse to walk in its advancing glory.--RH May 27, 1890. {LDE 210.1}
