Calvin [1509-1564], the Protestant Reformer
promoted in the French speaking churches of
Switzerland simplicity and purity of life, in place
of the pride and corruption fostered under the
Romish teachings. Yet he was at odds with all
other Protestant Reformers and especially those of
his time such as Luther, Zwingli, Farel and his
cousin Olivetan over the "free will." How many of
his followers today would have read his "Institutes
of the Christian religion"? Calvinism can be
summed up by the acronym of the flower tulip.
One of Calvin's closest follower, Jacobus Arminius
went from Switzerland to Holland to spread and
promote Calvinism, but ended up in opposition to
The Theology of John
Calvin, is that of defeated Christians living
in sin! John Calvin borrowed heavily
from St. Augustine, a kind of plagiarism. In turn, the
teachings of Roman Catholic St. Augustine came from the second and
third century ╣Gnosticism.
Calvin like his Roman Catholic mentor St. Augustine
practiced un-Christ like violence [persecution].
While Luther taught non-violence, he signed the
death penalty for parents failing to bring their new
born to church for sprinkling. This stemmed from a
false view of the character of God and the nature of
sin. The Bible says: "For the
unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and
the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband:
else were your children unclean; but now they are
Murderers will not go to heaven. Luther's best
Friend Philip Malangthon and Luther's mentor Von
Carlstadt had to flee from Luther and his 10 German
Princes to neutral Switzerland to join John Calvin
who had fled from France and his Roman Catholic
Persecutors only to become a Persecutor himself.
Persecution comes when the world and the church fall
in love with each other. Here is what the Bible has
to say: "Friendship with the
world is enmity with God."- James 4:4;
Revelation 17. State churches are enemies of God,
killing His sheep.
That sounds like an oxy-moron and a
contradiction in terms you say. And you are right.
Calvinist Baptists, Calvinist Presbyterians,
Calvinist Adventists, Reformed and Evangelicals, they all believe in keeping on
sinning. Like Martin Luther who said that he can sin
a 1000 times a day and not lose his salvation makes
a mockery of the cross of Christ and why was Adam
and Eve expelled for one sin.
Here is what the
Bible says: "What shall we say
then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may
abound? God forbid! How shall we, that are dead to
sin, live any longer therein? -Romans 6:1,2.
Catholic position is that of Romans seven where the
apostle Paul explains the carnal human nature of
himself as a born again Christian and bemoans the
fact he is carnal but the law is spiritual. But they
fail to look at Romans eight where the apostle gets
his victory over sin by the power of the Holy Spirit
because it is a spiritual law and cannot reside in a
carnal heart [Romans 8:7]. Romans 7 must be seen in
the light of Romans 6 and 8 to get the fuller
Both Luther and Calvin came from a Roman Catholic
background, they maintained this definition which is
not biblical. Here is the Bible definition of sin:
"Sin is the transgression of
the law." I had not known sin except for the law
that said thou shalt not covet." [1.John 3:4;
Romans 7:7; 3:20]. [Everyone doing the sin is also
doing the lawlessness]. Therefore much is made of
original sin by both Roman Catholics and Protestants
and even Baptists all denying the 10 Commandments
as the biblical definition of sin.
Luther wrote: "But
now we are ▓delivered from the law [Romans 7:6] We
are delivered from the Law in the sense that by
faith in Christ we obey the Law, and by grace freely
and willingly do what the Law demands of us. For
this we need [divine] love which seeks what
is God's and which is given to all who in true faith
ask for it in the name of Christ.---Commentary on
Romans,p.109,last par.,1976 ed.
The Augsburg Confession of faith written at a later
date gives no definition of sin other than the
generalization of original sin inherited us from
Adam. Even Luther's 95 thesis gives license to sin
for he wrote: "Christians should be taught that
while they are free to buy indulgences, they are not
commanded to do so."---Thesis #47.
Remember that all subsequent Protestant Reformers
relied heavily on Luther's theology which is not
without error! Even tough we are born in sin, we are
not accountable for Adam's sins but only for our
Evangelical Creeds by Harper quotes the following:
Question 89: "What is the dying of the old man?"
Answer: "Heartfelt sorrow for sin; causing us to
hate and turn from it always more and
more."---p.339, 1919 ed.
Modern Calvinism is contradicting the Bible in many
places as we shall shortly explain. John himself
believed in the Formula of Concord and the three
uses of the law. Modern Calvinism doesn't.
John Calvin has unnecessarily split Christianity and
could easily be classed as a cult.
The death Sentence!
The penalty of death given to Ananias and
Sapphira [Acts chapter 5] serves as a warning and
example to all would be Calvinists and Calvinists in
Adventism. Just for one single sin [deception], one
lie, they were executed by the Holy Spirit.
To explain the
infiltration of Calvinism into Adventism, we must
first go back to the war in heaven [Revelation
12:7]. And the continuation of the war in heaven
here on earth is mirrored in modern Calvinism.
WAR IN HEAVEN
"And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels
fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and
"The Dragon was wroth with the
woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her
seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have
the testimony of Jesus Christ." [Revelation
12:17].KJV [Note: a woman represents a church
John Calvin, if alive today, would not recognize his
teachings anymore! Calvinism has changed and broken
up into divisions. They now teach that our Lord
JESUS had the nature of un-fallen Adam and therefore
He could not be our example and sin. Only He
could obey the law or the commandments of GOD and no
But what does the Bible say?
"For verily he took not on him
the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of
Abraham." [Hebrews 2:16]KJV
"Concerning His Son Jesus
Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David
according to the flesh." [Romans 1:3]KJV
"Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made
like unto his brethren."
There is no doubt
that modern Calvinism has deviated from the original
teachings of their master John Calvin and the Bible,
making Christ so that He could not sin.
confession of faith article III has this to say
about Jesus Christ: "The Son of God is both fully
God and fully man." If they mean what they say, then
'fully man' must mean being just like you and me yet
without sin. So that we have a chance of
following the Saviour from sin [Matthew 1:21]
according to Romans 8:1-7 by the power of the Holy
Spirit. No wonder Luther refused to shake hands with
Calvin. Christ has to be our "present"
Saviour from sin and not only 2000 years ago.
Why was the Devil and his angels cast out of
We all know that the controversy began with
the devil trying to overthrow his Creator GOD and
take His place [Isaiah 14:12-17;Ezekiel 28:13-19].
I would like you to focus your attention on 'how'
the devil tried to do this and the lever that he
used in his attempt to pry GOD off His throne.
When Satan rebelled against the law of Jehovah, the
thought that there was a law, came to the angels
almost as an awakening to something unthought of.
[Thoughts from the Mount of Blessings,p.109]. They
operated on the law of love. Love for their Creator
and love for their fellow beings and, for them, that
was sufficient. It was not necessary to explain to
an unfallen angel that if you loved someone you
would not lie to him. That was self evident to him.
He could figure that out by himself. The law of love
was all the angels needed and it was all they had.
However, when GOD saw the rebellious thoughts in
Lucifer's heart, He spelled out His law in a
heavenly council. [Is that why it is hidden in the
ark of the covenant in heaven?] the Devil saw here a chance to accuse GOD and
say that His creatures could not obey. If this was
true, how could He possibly be a GOD of love?
Son of GOD, heard that lie and determined that He
would prove it to be false. He made plans to come to
this world to live the law in humanity, that Satan's
charges, that man cannot keep the law, might be
demonstrated to be false. [Romans 8:3+4].
two aspects of Satan's accusations that had to be
met. If CHRIST came to this earth with any advantage
over us He could not truly be our example. Also, if
CHRIST had access to any power to help Him resist
temptations that we do not have access to, then His
demonstration would be phony and would prove
When Adam fell in the garden of Eden, Satan said,
"See, that proves that GOD gave a law that no one
can obey [keep holy]. When the conditions reached
such a terrible state before the flood, again he
could say, "See, that proves that GOD has a law that
man could not obey." When the Jewish church wandered
so far away from GOD, he could say the same.
Then JESUS came.
At the end of His life He could say "who convinces
Me of sin?" "The prince of this world comes and has
nothing in Me." [John 8:46; 14:30] The victory was
full and complete and it once and for all disproved
the Devil's greatest lie.
Are you beginning to understand the meaning of the
first vision Ellen G.
White had? In this vision she
seemed to be above the world and she was looking for
the Advent people. She could not find them by
looking down at the earth. The angel said, look
again, and look a little higher. GOD'S last day
people have been called to follow our Lord in the
magnificent demonstration that He gave to us - and
prove to the universe that GOD'S law can be kept
perfectly by the fallen sons of Adam.
The birth of
down through history we come to the Protestant
Reformation. In the reformation days the state
church, the Roman Catholic, stood on the principle
that man cannot obey the law of GOD. Maybe a few
saints could, but the rest could not. They had to
invent the doctrine of purgatory in order to take
care of the problem of man's inability to stop
sinning while on this earth.
went very well in the beginning, but quickly ran
into trouble. Since that time there have been two
theological opinions coming to us from the
Reformation. One is that of we call
theology. The other is called Calvinism, which
embraces the Reformed, the Presbyterians and the
majority of those churches who, today call
themselves Evangelicals, including Baptists.
Within each of
these two schools of thought the Devil developed a
theory to destroy their testimony to the world. In
the Armenian ideology, he developed the doctrine
that the law of GOD has been nailed to the cross so
that it need no longer to be kept. Within Calvinism
he took an entirely different approach. He led man
to teach that the law of GOD was not nailed to the
cross, it is still binding, but it cannot be obeyed.
And because GOD knows that we cannot obey His
law, He does not want us to waste our strength in
vain endeavors to do that which is impossible, so we
must just trust in Him to continually forgive us 'in'
our sins. And so the argument in Calvinism has been
simply a repetition to the Devil's delight and
I must point out that neither of these errors were
in the original Armenian or the original
Calvinism. John Wesley preached in a rip-roaring
sermon once in which he said that anyone who
declares that the law of GOD is nailed to the cross
is one of the worse enemies the gospel ever had. He
would never had said that the law of GOD was
abolished, and neither would John Calvin have ever
said that the law of GOD could not be obeyed. And so
it was a corruption in Calvinism that brought
Adventism to the point it was in 1888 A.D.
Adventism in 1888
In 1888 there
were three major issues that were contended: an
organizational problem, a spiritual problem which
was rebellion against the 'Spirit of Prophecy', and
a theological problem, an invasion of Calvinism.
Many had thought that the problem was over the law
in Galatians. But the hassle over the law in
Galatians was only a symptom, not the problem. Ellen
G. White said that there was no sense in making such
a debate over that. It is not that important. But
the larger problem, an angel told her in vision, had
been going on for years. In Testimonies volume 5,76,
she wrote this warning: "Many people who preach the
truth to others are themselves cherishing iniquity."
and again: "What can I say to arouse our people? I
tell you not a few Ministers who stand before the
people to explain the Scriptures are defiled. Their
hearts are corrupt, their hands unclean." [Ibid 78].
had been living failures in their Christian life,
and, in order to excuse their failures, they were
advancing the arguments of Calvinism. On the first
Sabbath of the 1888 General Conference of Seventh
day Adventists, Ellen White spoke these words to the
assembled ministers and delegates: "Now, what we
want to present is how you may advance in the divine
life. We hear many excuses: I cannot live up to this
or that. What do you mean by this or that? Do you
mean that it was an imperfect sacrifice that was
made for the fallen race on Calvary, that there is
not sufficient grace and power granted us that we
may work away from our own natural defects and
tendencies, that it was not a whole Saviour that was
given us? Or do you mean to cast reproach on GOD?"
The idea that GOD
has given a law that His creation cannot obey, is
the Devils greatest lie, and it was invading
Adventism in 1888. And so Calvinism was refuted and
did not give the Adventist church very much more
trouble until the 1950's when Calvinism invaded the
Adventist church again.
Calvinist Baptist Walter Martin
1950's, a certain scholar, named Walter Martin,
visited some Leaders in Adventism. He wanted to
write a book about Adventists, describing them as a
cult. After some hesitation, the Adventists set up
conferences with him, and in an attempt to persuade
him that Seventh-day Adventists are not a cult, they
gave him a statement to the effect that the
Seventh-day Adventist Church had always believed
just like the Calvinists believe: that our Lord
Jesus Christ came to this earth in the human nature
of unfallen Adam.
A book called "The
Word Made Flesh" by Dr. Ralph Larson has 1200
statements to the opposite. Another book called "Question
On Doctrine" was especially printed by the Adventist
leaders for Walter Martin and his evangelicals, but
was withdrawn from publication until 2003 when the
Adventist leaders republished it. It is doubtful
that they made any sales.
Walter Martin in a meeting with the Seventh-day
Adventist leaders made this very bold statement: "No
one here can keep the Ten Commandments." Now
these leaders should have objected to this and said,
'Is the Holy Spirit empowered Christian so weak that
he/she cannot stop swearing and cursing? Always
wanting to worship idols? Commit adultery,
falsehood, lying and stealing? Can't stop coveting
or keep the Sabbath day holy?' But instead, they
remained silent in order to please the rest of
fallen Babylon [Christianity] and find acceptance.
"Here is the patience of the
saints: here are they that keep the commandments of
God, and the faith of Jesus."---Revelation
Leeroy Froom, best
known for his massive work 'Prophetic Faith of our
Fathers' and one of the Adventist leaders present at
the dialog with Walter Martin, then wrote 'Movement
of Destiny' partly in defense of Question on Doctrines
published in 1971.
Adventism also had help from Robert Daniel Brinsmead,
a self taught theologian, who first taught
perfectionism, then studied the history of
Protestants which made him turn away from his
Adventist faith. Today he runs for politics and has an
amusement park and is no longer sure of his salvation
Dr. Desmond Ford who studied in
Manchester England under FF Bruce and came home with
another brand of Calvinism to sow the seed at
Avondale college in Australia. He was consequently
defrocked and started out his own ministry called
'Good News Unlimited.' Ford put perfectionism so
high that it was impossible to reach. The problem
is, you do not need to be perfect in order to keep
GOD'S Ten Commandments even though GOD tells us to
be perfect even as He is. The question remains, why
is the Adventist leadership allowing the teachings
of Ford to continue to destroy their own original
Adventist identity? The SDA Gospel of Revelation
14:6,7 says: "Saying with a
loud voice, Fear God and give glory to Him; for the
hour of His judgment has come." Ford and the
Evangelicals are calling people into fallen Babylon
instead of out of it. Two gospels are running side
by side. God denounces Babylon "because she made all
nations drink of the wine of her fornication."
Note, Babylon means the gate of God. Fallen
Christianity beliefs that they can be saved in their
In 1952, only
short years before the book "Questions on Doctrines"
was written in favor of the Evangelicals with their
Calvinist understanding, F. D. Nichols, editor of
Adventist's main publication, "The Review and
Herald", published a book called "Answers to
Objections". Referring to the ex-Seventh-day
Adventists Nichols writes: "He speaks militantly of
the 'finished work of Christ on the cross." [p. 751]
Nichols then goes [on] to some pains to show that
such a position is void of logic:
"Of those who
charge us of teaching strange doctrines because we
believe that CHRIST'S work of atonement for sin was
begun rather than completed on Calvary we ask the
question: 'If a complete and final atonement was
made on the cross for all sins, then will not all be
saved.' for Paul says that 'He died for all.'
Are we to
understand you to be a Universalist? 'No' you say,
'not all men will be saved'. Well then, are we to
understand that you hold that CHRIST made complete
atonement on the cross for only a limited few, and
that His sacrifice was not world embracing, but only
partial? That would be predestination in its worst
form. [ATO 1952, p408] [end of quote]! That is
exactly what Calvinists believe!
Adventists will agree
with you that it was a complete atonement of CHRIST
on the cross of Calvary, but not a finished one.
From the finished atonement comes the modern heresy
of OSAS [Once saved, always saved] when people say
that they were born again at such and such a time
and since JESUS has done it all, there is nothing left
for me to do and I can go on sinning. JESUS was
judged for me at the cross and therefore I will not
have to be judged, they say.
Is this so? Let's
see what the Bible says:
"Being justified freely by His grace through the
redemption that is in Christ Jesus; Whom God hath
set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his
blood, to declare his righteousness for the
remission of sins that are past, through the
forbearance of God." [Romans 3:24,25]
Here it clearly states in the word of our GOD that
the forgiveness of our sins is only for the past
life as soon as we come to CHRIST and faith. We
become as clean as virgins Paul says in 2.Cor.11:2.
And since the Holy Spirit is only given to those who
obey [Acts 5:32] Satan counterfeits the spiritual
rebirth to the disobedient 2.Cor.11:13-15] and
deceives if possible the very elect of God [Matthew
24:24] and again:
"For the time is come that judgment must begin at
the house of God; and if first begin at us, what
shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of
God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where
shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?."
"What shall we say then? Shall
we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God
forbid! How shall we that are dead to sin, live any
longer therein? Romans 6:1,2
The Bible teaches
death to self and sin and not OSAS. The day of
"AT-ONE-MENT " taught by the Old Testament was not at
the sacrificial altar and the slaying of the lamb
alone, but also at the annual cleansing of the sanctuary
Temple of GOD. The word "cleansing" is a sanctuary
language and other interpretations do not fit
squarely. The cross of Christ is a complete
atonement, but it is carried into the heavenly
sanctuary of which the earthly was only a copy.
Catholics and Protestant Reformers did not study
Modern Calvinists contradicting John Calvin
Do we keep
forgiveness of our sins up to date by going to the
confession box or prayer? Why would the New
Testament tell us that Jesus Christ is our great
high priest in the heavenly original interceding
for us? John Calvin: "The regenerate are liable
every moment at God's judgment-seat to sentence of
death."- Inst.III,2,11. Here Calvin spoke of the
opposite of once saved always saved.
In 1970 Walter
Chantry a Baptist Evangelist brought out a booklet
entitled "Today's Gospel Authentic or Synthetic?".
In it he lamented the fact that evangelism had come
to a halt because Christianity is no longer
preaching the holy law of GOD, the Ten Commandments
as the needle to wound the transgressor so that the
gospel bandages may be applied. When Christianity
took the character of our GOD out of circulation,
sinners knew no longer what sin was and therefore
could not find forgiveness.
In the days of instant coffee and instant tea,
Christianity had invented instant salvation which is
contrary to the Bible. Adventism sounded the "Three
Angel's Messages of Revelation 14:6-12 announcing
the fall of modern Babylon [Christianity] which is
apostasy or backsliding. With no law to point out
sin, sin is stockpiling up to heaven for Babylon
THAT SAYS LORD LORD
Let the Lord
Himself enter the argument:
"Not every one that says unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall
enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth
the will of my Father which is in heaven."
And what is the 'will' of His Father in heaven? That
we become like GOD in sinless character to be fit
for heaven and not keeping on sinning [see
1.Thess.4:3] which is sanctification and the 'mark'
or 'sign' of GOD'S sanctification is Sabbath keeping
"Moreover also I gave them my
Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and me, that they
may know that I am the Lord that sanctifies them."
Which means that
Christians may have been born again, but not been
sanctified by GOD Himself. The truth is only in the
mouth but not in the heart. See also under "Sanctification"[
which opens up in a new window]. Christians that
willfully sin and despise CHRIST'S Seventh-day
Sabbath which He says is for all men and not just
for the Jews [Mark 2:28] will eventually idolize the
counterfeit Sunday Sabbath and a counterfeit
Sin remains, but
does not reign [Romans 6:14;8:1-7]. While we born
again Christian fight the good fight of faith which
works by love and keep our fallen nature under,
Calvinists in Adventism have given up the fight and
say that they keep on sinning till Jesus comes. But
what does the Bible say they belong to?
"He/she who sins is of the
Devil, for the Devil has sinned from the beginning.
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that
He may destroy the works of the Devil."
"For what the law could not do, in that it was weak
through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the
likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin
in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law
might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the
flesh, but after the Spirit."
"For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the
Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary to
one to the other: so that you cannot do the things
that you would."
contradiction in terms! "He
that says, I know Him, and keeps not His
commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in
"For this is the love of God, that we keep His
commandments: and His commandments are not grievous.
For whosoever is born of God overcomes the world:
and this is the victory that overcomes the world,
even our faith."-1.John 2:4; 5:3,4.
Presbyterian Calvinist Barnhouse
Dr. Barnhouse, an associate of
Walter Martin, claimed that our Sabbath keeping was
legalistic. i.e. trying to get us to heaven by it.
Does Barnhouse and Martin accuse our Lord, the Lord
of the Sabbath, being a legalist? Do they accuse the
Millions of Christians in ages past who kept Sunday
or Saturday as the Sabbath day strictly holy as well?
No, they are simply excusing their lack of consecration
and faith. Anyone attacking Christ's Sabbath also
attacks its owner.
whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend
in one point, he is guilty of all. For He that said,
Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now
if you commit no adultery, yet if you kill, you are
become a transgressor of the law. so speak you, and
do so, as they that shall be judged by the law of
liberty."--- James 2:10-12
Christianity teaches you to be a transgressor of the
10 Commandments. They make much of original sin and
try to induce guilt by it, but the real guilt lies
in transgressing the Sabbath of the law and so
become guilty of breaking the chain.
Assurance of Salvation
Jesus as our Lawyer, Advocate, Judge and Saviour
finds it easy to defend a law abiding Citizen in
Court. "Here are they that keep the commandments of
God and have the faith of Jesus Christ." [Revelation
14:12]. This must include the Sabbath of the fourth
commandment. Seventh-Day Adventists have more
assurance of Salvation then the make belief of
others. Jesus would have a hard time defending the
Transgressors of the law of God who are unrepentant.
Note that both, the old and new testament people
will have to face the 10 Commandments in the
judgment: Ecclesiastes 12:13,14; James 2:8-12;
1.John 3:4; Romans 7:7-14; 1.Corinthians 7:19; Luke
23:54-56; 16:16-18; 18:18 and Laodecea, the last
church means judging the people.
Is Grace irrestable and is
our will not free?
Irresistible grace is contrary
to the free will "that whosoever will" God has
elected to be saved by accepting or rejecting
Christ. God does not make robots out of us to love
Him. 1.Tim.2:3-6; Heb. 2:9; 2.Cor.5:19,20;
Rom.10:12,13; John 3:16; Titus 2:11; Acts 2:21;;
10:43. The Bible closes with these words:
"And whosoever will, let
him/her take the water of life freely."---Revelation
"For whom He did
foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed
to the image of His Son, that He may be the
firstborn among many Brethren."-Romans 8:29
i.e. sanctification, growing up into Christ.

"Three Angel's Messages" of the book of
Revelation 14:6 And I saw

everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on
the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and
tongue, and people,

loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the

keep the commandments of God, and the faith of
The first angel conflicts already
with the rest of Christianity [fallen Babylon].
Christians today are saying that because Jesus died
for us, He was also judged for us and therefore
there is no judgment for the Christians. But we have
already shown above, that this is not so.
The everlasting Gospel has been fully revealed to Moses
in a Passion Ply in the wilderness of which both the
New and Old Testament tell us that it is a copy of
what is in heaven. The executive "judgment" will
come with the seven last plagues. But here from
Revelation ch.14 Adventists and the angel are proclaiming the gospel together with the
announcement that the judgment of GOD is already
here. This does not mean the upheavals of nature we
are starting to experience.
It refers to the gospel play in
the wilderness when the sacrifice of the innocent
lamb represented our Savior Jesus dying for the
guilty sinner. Daily was the sanctuary defiled by
sin, but once a year the cleansing/justification
took place known as Yom Kippur, the day of Atonement
At the end of the
2300 days prophecy when our Lord Jesus entered
His last phase of His intercessory priesthood in
1844 A.D.. [Matthew 24:15; Daniel 8:13,14]
completing the Anti-typical day of Atonement. The
judgment also needs the Ten Commandments [see
2:10-12] which fallen Christianity despises in the
face of Jesus. All of the Ten we find in the
heavenly Temple under the throne or mercy seat of GOD.
[Hebrews 8:1-5; Rev.11:18,19.]
The first angel also calls for the
worship of our Creator GOD and repeats most parts of
the fourth of the Ten Commandments. In Roman
Catholic and Lutheran catechisms, it is listed as
the third commandments. This is because Rome removed

The second angel announces the
moral fall of that great city Babylon. Just as
ancient Babylon was a worldwide state religion, so
was Rome when it evolved from pagan to papal Rome.
In the coming new world order, fallen Protestant
America [the second beast of Rev.13] will enforce
the false wine of Babylon, the false doctrines on
the rest of mankind. Babylon [means the gate of God]
has fallen from grace into disgrace and sin

In Revelation chapter ten we see the great Millerite
disappointment of 1844 at the end of the 2300
days/year prophetic message of the book of Daniel.
Chapter eleven of Revelation shows that
sanctuary temple was to be justified or cleansed and
not the earth as Christians generally thought. They
saw the ark of GOD's testament containing all
of His commandments on judgment day [Revelation
When the Angel in Revelation 10:11 said you must
prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and
tongues, we find this repeated in the three angels
messages of Revelation
14:6 and they then said that
this is only face saving. Yet the very language in
Revelation 10:11 "You must
prophecy again, suggests that the bitter
disappointment was over prophecy." in 1844
As the papal dominance ended in 1798,
demons had to carry on the spiritual warfare as
pictured in Revelation 12:17
using Protestants as
well to fight the freshly discovered 'Ten
Commandments' under GOD's throne and especially the
fourth of the ten that had been neglected and now
seen in Revelation 14:6,7 warning all Christendom.
GOD'S Grace is more powerful
"Unto every one of
us is given grace according to the measure of the
gift of Christ." Ephesians 2:7. Under
the reign of grace it is just as easy to do right,
as under the reign of sin to do wrong. This must be
so, for if there is no more power in grace than
there is in sin, then there can be no salvation from
sin. Remember that JESUS does not save us "in" but
"from" sin. [Matthew 1:21].
"But where sin abounded, grace
did much more abound." [Romans 5:20]. This
being so, why do so many folks who are justified in
CHRIST JESUS, have a problem with regard to
sanctification, and why is it that they find that
requirement impossible to achieve? It is because
Satan has deceived so many in believing once saved
always saved as in modern Calvinism!
Here is the solution:
"Being confident of this very
thing, that He which has begun a good work in you
will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."
[Philippians 1:6]. A born again Christian has to
grow up into CHRIST and eat solid food daily to
reach perfection or maturity [Hebrews 5:11-6:4;
10:16-18; Romans 8:3+4]. And again:
"Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith." [Hebrews 12:2].
The finishing touch of the Christian's faith is
sanctification. Look at at this way: Our Lord is the
Author [Justification] and Finisher [Sanctification]
of our faith. Justification is our title to heaven
and sanctification is our fitness.
To Calvinists we say:
"Awake to righteousness, and
sin not, for some have not the knowledge of God; I
speak this to your shame." [1.Corinthians
15:34]. Our Lord JESUS must not only be a Saviour
2000 years ago, but also a present Saviour from sin.
"For sin shall not have
dominion over you; for ye are not under the law but
under grace." [Romans 6:14]. There are two
ways that we can be under the law. One is to be
under its condemnation as transgressors and the
other being under its jurisdiction of the holy moral
Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world."
[John 1:29] The fact that the word sin is in the
singular form makes the word apply to sin 'as a
principle' rather than on specific sins, and
therefore includes the 'power' of sin:
"....and to cleanse us from
all unrighteousness." [1.John 1:9]. To
Adventist Calvinists, Baptist Calvinists,
Presbyterians and any other Calvinist we say that that unless you
once more take up the good fight of faith and be an overcomer in JESUS, He cannot be your wisdom,
righteousness, sanctification and redemption.
[1.Corinthians 1:30] and allow GOD to put His laws
into your hearts and minds.
Then you have assurance of eternal life by trusting in JESUS CHRIST now
and not in self by an experience you had once some
"If we confess
our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our
sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."--1.John
1:9 Notice that it is the "Advocacy" of Jesus with
His Father in heaven and not the blood of the cross!
To cover our sins or sweep them under the carpet? No,
to cleanse us. From a few sins? No, from all

"Satan has a large confederacy, his
church. Christ calls them the synagogue of Satan
because the members are the children of sin. The
members of Satan's church have been constantly
working to cast off the divine law, and confuse the
distinction between good and evil. Satan is working
with great power in and through the children of
disobedience to exalt treason and apostasy as truth
and loyalty. And at this time the power of his
satanic inspiration is moving the living agencies to
carry out the great rebellion against God that
commenced in heaven."-Testimonies to Ministers and
Fallen Protestant America is making an image to
the fallen Mother Church!
Let me add this observation on the
candidacy of the USA as the 6th head in
the Great Controversy and as seen in
Revelation 12,13 and 17.
You may recall that my contention is
that all these heads are acting on
behalf of Satan. One of the primary
ways Satan fights against God is to
invoke disobedience in God's people.
Thus Eve was tricked to disobey and eat
the forbidden, Cain was led to disobey
and present the wrong sacrifice, and so

conformity to the things He commanded,

What did Christ come to fulfill?

meaning. Jesus came to give the 10

it, then Jesus came to do away with all
"And Jesus answering said unto him,
Suffer it to be so now: for thus it
becometh us to fulfill all
righteousness. Then he suffered Him."---Matthew
apostle Paul is also making it very
clear that the word 'fulfill' is not
doing away with love:
"Love works no ill
to his neighbour: therefore love is the
fulfilling of the law."---Romans
18:10 and again:
"For all the law is fulfilled in one
word, even in this, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour as thyself."-Gal.5:14
Paul is giving the law fuller meaning
just like Jesus does.
"That the righteousness of the law might
be fulfilled in us, who walk not after
the flesh, but after the spirit."
8:4 And remember that the keeping holy
of all of the Ten Commandments is the
whole duty of mankind[Eccl.12:14]
"Not forsaking the assembling of
ourselves together, as the manner of
some is; but exhorting one another: and

That day here, is the word 'Yoma', the
day of Atonement [At-One-Ment], not the
atonement of the cross which is past,
but the day approaching which is the
final day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, the
day of judgment, the cleansing of the
heavenly sanctuary and our soul temple.
Read the summery Hebrews 8:1-5 and see
that the book of Hebrews is all about
our great and high Priest Jesus Christ
in the heavenly Sanctuary. With deep
soul searching and confessions of sin,
everyone has to gather around Christ in
the Sanctuary the place of refuge before
Calvinists claim that they cannot fall
away [apostatize], yet Paul says that a
Christian can make shipwreck [1.Tim.1:19,20]
A ship that has been wrecked, is not

testament that did not come to the
Sanctuary on the day of Atonement would
be excluded from inheriting eternal
That is why the very next verse says:
"For if we sin
willfully after that we have received
the knowledge of the truth, there
remains no more sacrifice for sins."
Impossible to loose Salvation?
"It is impossible for those who were
once enlightened, and have tasted of the
heavenly gift, and were partakers of the
Holy Spirit. And have tasted the good
word of God, and the powers of the world

[Greek Gnosis] meaning revealed knowledge. Gnostics
divided mankind into 3 categories: spiritual
[pneumatic], carnal [hylic], and the in-between
[psychic]. The spiritual Christians were a higher
class then the ordinary Christians. They said to be
saved regardless of what they did because they had
received, as the elect of the good deity, a divine
spark into their being that allowed them to be
redeemed. This teaching is strikingly similar to the
Calvinistic doctrine that God elected some to be
saved and others to be lost.
Both Gnostics and
Calvinists teach that any sinful action does not
affect their eternal salvation. Both agree that
there is nothing that can cause a saved person to
loose their salvation. The Gnostics took their
teachings to their ultimate conclusion by pursuing
their own lust and passion without restraint.

a sect of Philosophers who taught that Salvation
rested in knowledge, not in faith."---compact
