There Is Hope For Laodicea
Will you be left behind in the Laodicean Church? Are you afraid of being left behind because you did not pay attention to your calling as a Christian? There is hope for you?
Listen, You are being chosen for a great responsibility by Jesus Christ. Even, to give that final great witness for Him, Revelation 3:18-22. You can sit with Him on His Throne. Now is the time to let the Holy Spirit lead you in grace and faith to get the job done, Matthew 24:4-14, Revelation 3:22- He that hath an ear let him (or her) hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
You are not alone! There are already many Christians being persecuted around the world who are willing to walk with Jesus Christ, 2 Corinthians 5:7, 1 John 1:5-7. People from, The Voice of the Martyrs, Open Doors With Brother Andrew, Prayer for the Persecuted Church and the Back to Jerusalem Movement, are some of these people who are wiling sacrifices. Who have been leading the way in our age for sometime. They are "Hot" for God's work all over the world today filled with faith, hope, and love to do the best that they can under some unbearable circumstances. Jesus Christ has already been knocking at their doors for sometime and they responded willingly. Come and join with them.
Don't be lukewarm and undecided as to what you need to do. God's harvest of new souls for God's Kingdom is in great need of you, Matthew 9:37-38. Don't be a afraid and let yourself become cold to God's calling and join the enemies false ways for I can see that you have already been leavening yourselves with SATAN'S WAYS and another Jesus, 2 Corinthians 11:4. Come out of Satan's Babylonian System now and stop leavening yourself with his abominable cultic ways of Sunday, Easter and Christmas, etc, Revelation 17:4-6; 18:2-8.
You need to take time and consider God's redeeming call to you as you once did but somewhere along the way you stopped studying and proving the important things that count. Don't let anyone take your crown from you because you are not "hot" for God any longer, Revelation 3:11. Remember, we all are individually respondsible for our own salvation, 2 Timothy 2:15. We are to shun the vain teachings of the world and stop going along with flow of churches that keep lulling you asleep to the real wants of God. You need to have good works perfected in you, 2 Timothy 3:1-17. So when Jesus comes knocking be ready to give a , Yes Lord , answer, Revelation 3:20.
Yes, you may have to give your life for witnessing for Jesus. And though that is a high price to pay, just remember Jesus Did it for you, Matthew 28:18-20, John 3:16-17. It's a lot better to be saved than condemned, Revelation 20:14-15. Especially, because you where lazy and let your guard down so some one like the Devil can take away your crown of life. Jesus Christ loves you even as the Father and Holy Spirit love you as one of their Temples to dwell in, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 2 Corinthians 6:16-18., John 14:23. So this should be something for you to reconsider as this world falters along trying to bring peace through persecution, wars and death.
Will there really be a Laodicean Church in this age? Well, yes because the Bible is the inspired Word of God and says there shall be such a group of people mentioned in Revelation 3:14-22 and Revelation 12:17. In one Seventh Day Church that I once belonged we were always taught that there is one. Often this term was used, especially by a hierarchical church as a way to control brethren. Threats about becoming Laodicean was one way to keep brethren from leaving and in fear of falling away and keep them paying their tithes.
This Laodicean church was "supposed" to have begun after 1844 when William Miller's, Millerite Adventist movement failed in that year. For some reason this church was thought to have been the Philadelphia church even though it was a Sunday keeping Luciferian church. Their inspired leader was a former Freemason. William Miller who died in December 20, 1849. This church was never reported to have gone anywhere to a place of safety in his day for 3 1/2 years? This seems rather odd since the churches of God were supposed to be Seventh Day Sabbath keepers? Jesus did not come 3 1/2 years later or after 1844. This whole sharade seems to have been another hoax setup by Freemasons from that Catholic Apostalic Church in Scotland which is also responsible for the"Pre-Rapture" idea contrived by some of these very same people from that cult.
From them came another group of followers including Ellen G. White and her husband James White who were also Freemasons who have continued with this false Adventist hope of Christ's soon return to take everyone to heaven. They also like many other churches at that time taught that they were the start of Laodicean Church. With inspiration from Joseph Bates and Ellen White, their prophetess they became Seventh Day Sabbath Keepers and took the name Seventh Day Adventist in the October 1860..This church has become the largest Seventh Day church in our day.with nearly 20 million brethren. It continues today with the assumption that they are fulfilling Revelation 12:17, the Remnant church left behind to finish God's work which the so called Freemason Millerite "Philadelphian" church failed to do. This is an interesting point that needs to be made clear since some may think they have been doing God's work in it for sometime as Seventh Day Sabbatarians but are really teaching another gospel about a different Jesus similar to the Cathars of the Middle Ages. Jesus Christ has not changed His mind about putting Satan away for one thousand years., 2 Corinthians 11:4, Revelation 20:1-4, Hebrews 13:8.
This seperation from Philadelphia Church to Laodicean Church has not happened yet? Since this work by the Seventh Day Adventist is about a different Jesus. I once belonged to another 7th Day Church which claimed to be the Philadelphia Church of God, of course they were not and this church changed to Sunday worship eventually. Then it changed its name and doesn't exist today by that name. To me there seems to be a struggle going on among SDA and its Masonic hierarchical male leadership. One group claims to follow Ellen Whites instructions to keep looking for more inspired lights of truths like keeping God's Holy Days and having more women in their ministry. Usually when a Church becomes so large and has a institutional leadership format they tends to push out the Holy Spirit's teaching along with women for the doctrine of men, Matthew 15:7-9. The SDA hierarchy seems to have lost its way by shutting down the Holy Spirit's leadership, John 16:7,13. No doubt their are some male ministers in the SDA that are misogynistic towards women's ordination and maybe also towards Ellen G. White's leadership? Their is a slight possibility that some SDA are really Phildelphians for example: Evangelist to South America, David Gates thinks he is more Philadelphian.
This hierarchical group, seems set on some kind of idea that they should be more Catholic or have a closer relationship with the Roman Catholic Church can be understood. A number of years ago over fifty thousand SDA left under the leadership of a SDA minister to keep Sunday as there Day of worship. There still seems to be a riff as to whether they should remain Seventh Day Sabbath keepers or not. They also have some of the old SDA doctrines which they say Ellen White would not change and uses them to put fear of going against Ellen G. Whites teachings, which need to be challenged, to see if they are really about the return of Jesus Christ to rule on the earth, Revelation 5:10.
One teaching is that the church will go to heaven for one thousand years for some kind of investigative judgment in heaven when Jesus Christ returns and that Satan would remain unbound here on the earth for that time, Revelation 20:1-3. This doctrine is not in the Bible, William Miller did not teach this idea. Ellen White is reported to have received this in a vision that is contrary to the teachings of Jesus Christ, Matthew 24:14-31. Once again you must realize that both her and her husband James White were practicing Freemasons or Luciferians. Would Jesus Christ Really have changed his teachings about His second coming and closed the door to others so they could not be called to salvation later, Revelation 19:6-21. Hebrews 13:8, Malachi 3:6, Revelation 22:19? Besides , Jesus already went to heaven for us on the Day of the Wave Sheve offering in 31 A.D., Leviticus 23:11,John 20:17, Hebrews 2:3-18; 9:8-28.
Revelation 22:19, says there is a curse on anyone that would teach this doctrine which is opposed to Jesus Christ second coming to the earth and that Satan would be bound for 1,000 years, Revelation 20:4-6; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17. This will be on the earth for one thousand years, Revelation 5:10, Joel 2 & 3, Zechariah chapters 10-14, 1 Corinthians 15:52-58, Zephaniah 3:13-20. Be sure to look through our first link at the End Time Pilgrim with Gavin Finley's articles. There is a very interesting article about the Post -Tribulation Message which shows Jesus Christ coming to rule on the earth with the Saints, after the Great Tribulation (Post-Tribulation), Matthew 24:21-22, Revelation 19&20, Joel 2 & 3, Jeremiah 30:7-10, Micah 4:1-10.
Ellen White could have changed her mind on these things but she did not in her day, she died in 1915. She wanted the brethren to follow more new truths that would come and enhance their ministry.and get them ready as Christ's end time ministry. There maybe a real spiritual warfare going on in this church. This is between Christ's sheep and wheat versus Satan's Masonic goats and tares. Which will it be? The remnant left behind still might be Laodicean but it is likely some will become part of the counterfeit Church lead by the false anti -Christ. They are blind to God's real truths now, and are in Bed with the goats and tares from the Freemasons and Catholic Church.
Many new truths have been given to this present SDA Church. However there are those that refuse to listen and want them to disbelieve these truths. One truth is that more women are needed in their ministry to make it work. Janette Hassey writes in her book, No Time For Silence, about Advent women in God's ministry. She writes that they first ordained Anna Eliza Smith in 1866. Born a Quaker she converted to Adventism and helped organize the Union Female Missionary Association, which included Adventist preachers. Anna Smith paved the way for many other ordained Adventist Christian Women, The Adventist have about 200 women in ministry preaching today but there is a greater need for more of these "Battle-axes' for God.
Most SDA women have their ministries mostly in the field overseas and aound the world. Women in the SDA have shown themselves to be quite efficient in ministering in their overseas house churches especially in China. An article in the Adult Sabbath School Bible Study Guide, April-May-June, 2012, tells the story of sharing God's love in one area of China in which they comprise about 46 Adventist churches pastored by women. These women more than likely are doing this work under the tutorship of the Holy Spirit and may not have been ordained by the hands of men. What a difference it would make here in the USA if bright ladies like them were conducting House Churches here. God wants them but there are some resisting this effort of the Holy Spirit, Ruach HaKadosh. It seems that a Laodicean misogynistic mind set persist in SDA leadership that does not want women in the ministry in this country, Revelation 3:17. Remember their leadership is a Gnostic Masonic male hierarchy.
Personal Ministry: Ellen White's view of women's ministry does requires change in church structure or polity, and its implementation would revoluntionize the church's practice. It needs to be a more Egalitarian servant leadership structured. There would be a great increase in personal work done, both by paid full - and part time workers and by volunteer laborers. If the work were done in the Spirit of Jesus, the women would show a power greater than that of men. There would be an explosion in the numbers of people won to Christ and His truth through these gentle, appealing ministry of women. There would be healing in the home relationships, as godly women workers challenged men to reflect the self-sacrificing leadership of Christ in their own relationship with their wives, and women to honor that headship as they would the headship of Christ( servant leadership). Families would be strengthened, and there church would make a start on the road to showing a world filled with hurting and broken families what a differernce the practice of the servant Lordship of Jesus really makes, (Reworded slghtly from the article - Personal Ministry section, page 9, Ellen G. White and Women in Ministry by William Fagal,MDiv, Ephesians 5:21,23-27. Hebrews 6:10-20;10:15-25, Romans 8:16-17, See link to this article in - Ellen G. White & Womens Ordination). SDA women need to set their goals on the return of Jesus Christ to rule on this earth as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Revelation 19:16, Zechariah 14:9-14. and get away from their old Cathar or Freemason leadership.
Argentinean evangelist (Pentecostal Holyness) Ed Silvoso likes to call Christian women "God's Secret Weapons." He suggest that Satan fears what women will one day do to him: the devil knows that God does not lie - what God promises always comes to pass. This is why Satan has spent centuries belittling women and of weaving a web of lies into a formidable worldwide network of oppression to hold them down. He knows that when women find out who they really are, his evil kingdom will come to an abrupt end. He cannot afford to have women walking upright, He desprerately needs to keep them down, (From J.Lee Grady's book, 25 Tough Questions About Women and the Church, Chapter 25, pages 198-199)
For some reason the SDA hierarchical leadership has stiffened also against any other new ideas like the Revelations from Ron Wyatt about the Ark of the Covenant, Noah's Ark, The Real Red Sea Crossing and the real Mt.Sinai in Arabia, Galatians 4:25, and the real location of Sodom and Gomorrah. Even several of their own licensed archeaologists, Dr. William Shea and Jonathan Gray both, verified these finds so that they could show them to the world, but this hierarchical church instead hides these truths, Jeremiah 23:1-12. This can be easily understood if they are really Freemasons with a different agenda..
Another teaching that has been put down is the teaching that The Holy Spirit Ruach HaKadosh is our Spiritual Mother as presented to them through one of their own members, Walesia Robinson Gates M.D., in her book , Holy Spirit Mother... Because God is Family. They had this teaching removed and her book shut down. No doubt many other truths are being kept down that would make their work more revealing and would make them very Philadelphian in the loving nature of the Holy Spirit, Isaiah 66: 7-13, Galatians 4:26, John 3:5-8. Even, Lois Roden, taught this in another division of the SDA called the Branch Davidian before our secular government was able to get in and destroy this little church because of the false teaching of David Koresh in 1987.
So, here is a church founded by a former Freemason William Miller, and then Ellen G. White. Inspired by another spirit to lead a very small group of Sunday Christians to become the Largest Seventh Day Church in the USA and world? Even with a physical handicap and other mistakes in prophecy, she has accomplished more than most men in her day and ours. She was once asked if she was infallible? Her answer was that she is just a weak human being like most of us. Maybe this is one of main reasons she was used to raise a church for these last days. Did she really have a humble contrite spirit that God could work through? Some men are still trying to marginalize her teachings when she said herself that the SDA church should be looking for more brighter lights to reveal Jesus work to the world. It is sometimes hard to see why God would use a Freemason to start His church for His great purpose?
The weak link in this SDA church is it's male hierarchical leadership. Jesus Christ does not have any such Freemasonic leadership (Modern Cathars) chain of command. He is the servant leader of His Church and woman are a very vital source for God's Spirit to work with in God's church. Jesus forbade any such assumption that His church is for men only leadership positions, Matthew 20:25-28, Mark 10:42-45, Luke 22:25-28, John 13:1-13. God does not discriminate against women, gentiles or slaves. We are to follow the leadership of the Seed of Abraham as one ministry in Jesus Christ, Galatians 3:28-29. Those that contend with Jesus on this matter will be given a very hard time by Him now and when He returns, Matthew 7:20-22. When women are full time ministers with men then God's gifts will come with them and God's work will be done in the power and love of a Philadelphian mind set, 1 Corinthians 12:13-14, 28-31;14:13.
Yes, there is hope for the Laodicean church. As time marches on we shall see just who will comprise the Laodicean work that needs to be fulfilled in these last days. Will you be part of this group of called out Christians called to do service for our Lord Jesus Christ. Will you answer the door when He knocks or will you be sleeping on your watch, thinking things have always been the same, Matthew 24:42, 2 Timothy 3:1-7. Will you have enough oil to keep your lamps lit, Matthew 25:1-13.
It's time to wake up! Perilous times are here. Satan has many false prophets and teachers to deceive you, 2 Peter 2:3, Jeremiah 23:25-34. Are you in tune with the Holy Spirit and have enough of her oil, Matthew 25:1-13? Now is the time to draw near to God so He will draw near to you, James 4:7-10. Most Christians in these last days need a better foundation in Jesus Christ, 1 Corinthians 3:10-15. So continue to pray and prove all things holding unto what is good, 1 Thessalonians 5:17-24.
There are several things that you will need to do to make sure that you come out of the teachings of tares or false prophets that are among you. First of all replace Satan's Babylonian holidays with God's Holy Days, Leviticus 23. do it yourself, there are many who do keep these Days even in the SDA all ready on their own effort ( some are former WCG members).. They follow Jesus Christ given examples, John 7:2-3,37-39. The majority of hierarchical leadership of men in the SDA prefers to keep the Babylonian Holidays of Christmas and Easter. It seems that some of their ministers are like the physical Jewish leaders of Jeremiah's day who misled the people of the House of Judah to keep Christmas, or Mithra's birthday, Jeremiah. 10:1-8,21. They are trinitarian Gnostics with a strong Catholic influence.
They also encourage their people to keep Easter in worship of the pagan goddess Ishtar or Semeramis the Queen of heaven and to Tammuz her son, Jeremiah 7:3-8,18; 44:16-22, Ezekiel 8:6-14. Many know the scripture in Revelation 18:4 but they seem very liberal minded and content to keep these Babylonian pagan days. Hopefully those that are really of God will come out from keeping them as the end-time Laodicean church, if they to have not already departed as part of the Philadelphia Church to escape more terrorible curses and plagues.Revelation 18:5-8.
December 25 has passed at the end of another pagan "christian" cycle or end of year of placing your gifts under that famous phaellic symbol in your living room or looking to other important places like the big one in Washington D.C., near to that national phaellic symbol built by the Freemasons, the Washingtom monument. Are you satisfied and relaxed waiting for another new year of trials, tribulation, curses and plagues. Are you looking forward to Ishtar's or Easter's and her son Tammuz's resurrection instead of God's Passover dedicated to Jesus Christ, Matthew 17:1, 25-26? ( Check our link to Richard Rives website, www.toolong.org and get and eye full of what all these symbols mean, 2 Peter 3:3-5, page 180-184!)
Some may be misled to forsake God's Seventh Day Sabbath again for Sunday worship, but don't you do it, Jeremiah 17:7, 21-27; 23:11-19. Sunday worship is Baal worship or the worship of Nimrod on the day of the Serpent Satan, Sunday. So be careful to continue to seek you first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness,Matthew 5:17-18; 6:33 when Jesus knocks on your door open it and sit down with Him, Revelation 3:20. I could not find any where in the Bible where we are told to keep Sunday now as a day of worship. God seems to be very firmly commited to the Seventh Day Sabbath, Malachi 3:6 -7 and Hebrews 4:2-9; 13:7-8 - "I change not "- "the same yesterday, today and forever".
Jesus Christ is coming soon! He has his rewards for you! Eternal life and a very beautiful crown for overcomers, Revelation 3:12; 22:7-17. Will you be ready. Do you hear him knocking? Open the door and he will come in and sup with you and you will sit with him on His throne, Revelation 3:21 God be with you until the end. Yes, there is hope for the Laodicean Church and all of us too. Amen.
