SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISTS: the TRUTH

SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISTS

Most people know little about the Seventh-day Adventists beyond that they worship on Saturdays, not Sundays. But there’s more to this unique sect. 

The Seventh-day Adventist church traces its roots to American preacher William Miller (1782–1849), a Baptist who predicted the Second Coming would occur between March 21, 1843, and March 21, 1844. Because he and his followers proclaimed Christ’s imminent advent, they were known as “Adventists.” 

When Christ failed to appear, Miller reluctantly endorsed the position of a group of his followers known as the “seventh-month movement,” who claimed Christ would return on October 22, 1844 (in the seventh month of the Jewish calendar). 

Ellen White gained recognition in Adventist circles as a prophetess and became the church’s leader; she claimed to receive the first of several hundred visions in December of 1844.

Often Adventist-related publishing houses conduct mass mailings of their literature to every home and post office box in a community. Much of the published material comes from White’s single most popular volume, The Great Controversy. Continue reading SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISTS: the TRUTH

CRASH INTO HEAVEN

CRASH HEAVEN

HERE’S A SEARCHING QUESTION? 

“If you were to die tonight, and “St Peter” or “Elijah” or “Mohamed” was at the “Pearly Gates of Heaven” and asked you, ’Why should God let you into His Kingdom?’ – what would you say?”
   1) What would your own personal answer be?
   2) What do you think the answer would be from a true believing Christian

THE MOST COMMON RESPONSES ARE:

     a) I am not perfect, but in all honesty, I think I’m a good person.
    b) I sincerely try to keep the 10 commandments,
    c) I always try to do my best ( – although I sometimes fail)
    d) I know I am a good person ( – and at least better than one of my neighbors !)

The answers assume that if a person rates high enough on a divine “scale of goodness”, then that person SHOULD get into “heaven” based on their performance (or merit). The answers from people in other religions have a lot in common with these same answers.

THOSE LACKING KNOWLEDGE of GOD

No knowledge of God

WHAT ABOUT THOSE WHO LACK KNOWLEDGE?

PARALYZING FEAR OF GOD

Have you ever had a feeling that God is somewhat threatening and somewhat fearsome? God’s love for you can be limited to your fear of God’s power. You may even wish to keep a careful distance even though the desire for closeness is immense. The paralysis of the fear of God is one of the great human tragedies.

No Knowledge of God

God is in charge of the world. Every single force at work in the universe comes from His hand and is under His control. Think of the wonderful workings of your own body: you must know that a vastly superior Being could have engineered such a magnificent machine. So God has revealed Himself. You should automatically have an inherent knowledge of God from this observation alone.

How can God justly judge those have no knowledge of God? Answer: they have rejected the revelation of God in nature.For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”                                                                                                        Romans 1:20

Most of us reject the concept of punishment unfortunately. Like children, we don’t wish to face the consequences of our own choices. What will happen to them? They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might”                                                       2 Thessalonian 1:9

Some people like to make jokes about hell, but if you simply read the scriptures, hell is no laughing matter. One writer calls it the bottomless pit. It conjures the idea of falling, falling, falling. Now imagine that God is hanging on to you, but you decide that you don’t need Him anymore. You don’t want God messing up you plans and telling you what to do. So you let go.

You have just committed treason against the King of the universe. Your sentence has been self-imposed. Remember THE LAW OF CONSEQUENCES. If we choose to sin, there will be evil results. We cannot avoid them.

The world cannot escape the terrible judgments of God. It will be too late then to choose your side. That will not be the time for choosing. Now, today, this moment is our chance to choose the right side.

 But the moment you let go, you begin to fall further and further from the source of help. You know that you have made a mistake but you can’t get back up. How long? Forever! There is no annihilation: that means you can’t just disappear. You have to suck it up!

God does not want anyone to perish like that.  But justice has been carried out.

God knows how we function. That is why He has provided a new resource for believers: the Holy Spirit. “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us,”                                             Ephesians 3:20

AMERICA’S LAST CALL

AMERICA'S LAST CALL
AMERICA’S LAST CALL

I saw a horseman rode up to me and handed me a scroll. In big black bold print were the words,” WAR AND DESTRUCTION”. “America is receiving her last call. Some nations already have received their last call and never will receive another.”

I saw the skyscrapers were burned-out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. There would be many such cities destroyed.America's last call

Jesus spoke,” All the gifts of the Spirit will be in operation in the Church in these last days and the Church will do greater things than even the Early Church did… We are now entering into the era of the miraculous… I am gathering My own together and am preparing them, for the time is short.” “The time that is left is comparable to the last seven days of Noah’s time.”

DEMONS & SPIRITUAL WARFARE

SPIRITUAL WARFARE: 25 TRUTHS

Christ is speaking to St. Faustina who lives in a convent about the 25 truths about demons and spiritual warfare.

Heaven Hell Spiritual Warfare

Jesus began, “My daughter, I want to teach you about spiritual warfare(Diary 1760)(The Lord’s words are in bold text; commentaries follow.)

spiritual warfare

  1. Never trust in yourself but abandon yourself totally to My Will.

Trust is a spiritual weapon. Trust is part of the shield of faith that St. Paul mentions in the following chapter six of Ephesians: the armor of God. Abandonment to God’s will is an act of trust; faith in action dispels evil spirits.

  1. In desolation, darkness and various doubts, have recourse to Me and to your spiritual director. He will always answer you in My name.

In times of spiritual warfare, immediately pray to Jesus. Invoke His Holy Name that is feared in the netherworld. Bring darkness into the light by telling a spiritual director or confessor and follow his/her instruction.

  1. Do not bargain with any temptation; lock yourself immediately in My Heart.

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL

 WHERE WILL YOU READ ABOUT A VISION OF HEAVEN, HELL AND PURGATORY?

heaven

Here are three accounts of visions of heaven, hell and purgatory. Try to be open to these stories.  Try not to be so skeptical this time. It is very revealing and it will be to your benefit.

Heaven is for Real

A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.

Heaven is for Real Souls in Purgatory

Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “reaaally big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us, and how Colton was able to pray for his father on earth .

REAL HELL EXPERIENCE

Hell experience

THREE CATEGORIES OF HELL EXPERIENCE

The problem of evil exists in every single world-view and religious tradition. The devil really has no power over us unless we give it to him. Jesus identified these demons: “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”                                                              John 8:44

When we die, unfortunately all our choices become eternal. They have eternal ramifications.

There are three categories of experiences that (Near Death Experience) NDEs have experienced:

HELL EXPERIENCE

  1. HELL ON EARTH: it was like a great battlefield. Everywhere people were locked in what looked like fights to the death, writhing, punching, gouging… “”And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”                                                                      Matthew 25:30
  2. THE PIT being trapped in a dark cave accompanied by a putrid smell like feces, sulfur or death in extreme cold or extreme heat and even fire. The demons resembled humans but they were ugly and grotesque.
  3. THE VOID: described as a falling experience through outer darkness. “It became horrific, no feeling, no sensation, no sense of light. Underground laborers, performed some endless, brutally monotonous task. “I saw hell, and I’m not going back. I want to find the God that pulled me out of hell.”

REALITY OF HELL

REALITY OF HELL One of the great dangers of this century, and thus one of the great triumphs of Satan, has been the growing disbelief in the existence of Hell. For many, Hell has become a fable, a myth, an outdated holdover from “the Old Testament God of fire, brimstone and judgment.”

WHAT HELL IS LIKE

Hell is a place of fire. Matthew 13:42 speaks of it as a furnace of fire. Matthew 25:41 calls it an everlasting fire. Mark 9:44-45 says the fire is never quenched. Revelation 21:8 refers to it as the lake of fire. There will be no relief from its fires because Revelation 14:11 says the smoke from the fires of torment ascends forever and ever.

Jesus warns: “And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire…”                                        Mark 9:42

TESTIMONY: GOING TO HELL

One of the greatest mystics of this century was Sister Josefa Menendez, who died in 1923 at the age of 33. More than once, she was taken to Hell to witness and feel the suffering first-hand:

“My soul fell into abysmal depths, the bottom of which cannot be seen, for it is immense . . . ; then I was pushed into one of those fiery cavities and pressed, as it were, between burning planks, and sharp nails and red-hot irons seemed to be piercing my flesh. I felt as if they were endeavoring to pull out my tongue, but could not. This torture reduced me to such agony that my very eyes seemed to be starting out of their sockets. I think this was because of the fire which burns, burns. . . not a finger nail escapes terrifying torments, and all the time one cannot move even a finger to gain some relief, not change posture, for the body seems flattened out and [yet] doubled in two.

VOODOO SPIRITUALITY

VOODOOISMvoodooism spiritual beings loa

Vodou is primarily practiced in Haiti, New Orleans, and other locations within the Caribbean. There is great variation within Voodoo beliefs and practices. Many Vodou practitioners also consider themselves Catholics. Voodooism involves spiritual beings.

voodooism spiritual beings

As well as being the priest or priestess, the houngan acts as confessor, confidential and financial advisor, prophet and healer for the people in the community. But the houngan is more a folk healer with a considerable knowledge of herbal remedies who treats minor illnesses. While selling love potions and protective charms, including small bags to be worn for protection or for good luck, may be a lucrative side business for a priest or priestess, the primary occupation is still as a spiritual leader of his community. Voodooists especially places value on the strength of community for support.

Loa or Spiritual Beings

The spirits of death, The Guédé are really an enormous group of the loa who are the spirits of formerly living people. He is the one who controls the passage between life and death. In ritual, he is often offered black goats or chickens. The most frequently performed ritual in Voodoo is one that invokes a particular loa (supernatural beings) to offer food to him and seek his presence on earth.

The most important components of a human body, however, are the two parts of the soul, the ti-bon-ange (‘little good angel’) and the gros-bon-ange (‘great good angel’). The gros-bon-age keeps the body alive, and after death, it returns to the reservoir of energy in the cosmos. Without the gros-bon-ange a person loses his/ her life-force. The ti-bon-ange makes up the half of a person’s soul and it is the source of a person’s personality. Furthermore, it is responsible for determining an individual’s characteristics, personality and will.

In Voodoo belief, death is not seen as the end of life, but as a change. The soul – the gros-bon-ange and the ti-bon-ange – endures after death in a different form. The gros-bon-ange returns to the high solar regions where it joins the other loa (supernatural being) and is itself transformed into a loa. Approximately a year after the death, the houngan (priest) performs a ritual, to ensure that the ti-bon-ange is put to rest. This ritual is very important because otherwise the ti-bon-ange may wonder the earth and bring illness and disaster on others.

A Distinctive Human Soul

 A human person is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL BEING with a spiritual soul and a material body. Human beings alone are created in the image and likeness of God; and therefore, possess rational and spiritual souls: a human person is a body/soul composite.

Why is this Extremely Dangerous?

BUDDHISM NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

BUDDHISM & NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE 

near death experience

Are there NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE in which a Buddhist encountered Buddha? YES!

Dr. Atwater is an international authority on near- death states as well as a near-death experiencer. She is one of the original researchers in the field of near-death studies, having begun her work in 1978. More than 3,000 people are registered at her discussion form site, and we understand that they have one of the largest databases on NDEs in the world.

Where arguments arise amongst various people and groups is over the interpretation of that light and any form it make take, and how to regard it.

Scientists say it is endorphins; Muslims say it is fantasy; religious fundamentalists of any “stripe” say it is Satan (Lucifer). People of faith say it is either of God or of emissaries from God.

WHAT IS CLINICAL DEAD?

WHAT ARE NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES?

Numerous experiencers see figures and forms in the light. These are variously described as angels, guides, guardians, light beings (beings made entirely of light), religious figures, high holy ones and often kids call them “the people.”

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Happiness38done.jpg

The vast majority of individuals remain consistent overtime with what they say and do not distort original narratives. That means accusations of New Age jargon, religious prophesy, Christian visions, Western indulgences, or the like, are untrue.

THREE KINDS OF VERITABLE EVIDENCE

 

There can be mixups as in the case of Jeanie Dicus. She was a Jewess yet she was visited by Jesus. This so surprised her and confounded her that she promptly challenged Jesus, and continued to do so throughout her entire near-death episode, saying: “I don’t believe in You. Why are You here?”

Atheists report the same type of visitations as do religious folk. In other words, you don’t have to believe in anything to be surprised at what you find when you nearly die.

Where this situation gets fascinating is when you invite experiencers to draw the high holy one/religious figure who visited them. To a person, you cannot tell the difference between a drawing from someone in the State of Wyoming from one done in Thailand or Israel or Russia or China or Nigeria. Patterning holds; differences in patterning only concern a few details of dress and behavior. They certainly don’t look like Buddha.
