Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unright-eousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.  2 Cor. 6:14-18

CONVINCED THAT WM. H. GROTHEER'S SERMONS  AND WATCHMAN, WHAT OF THE NIGHT? ARTICLES ARE BIBLICAL TRUTH? IF SO:

"Review,
then Review again, and
Review all that you've Reviewed"  {Quoted from WWN 5-7(00)
}

After the truth has been proclaimed as a witness to all nations, every conceivable power of evil will be set in operation, and minds will be confused by many voices crying, "Lo, here is Christ, Lo, he is there. This is the truth, I have the message from God, he has sent me with great light." Then there will be a removing of the landmarks, and an attempt to tear down the pillars of our faith. (R&H, December 13, 1892.)

And Related Prophetic Events

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  John 8:32 

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me . . .  Hosea 4:6

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.  2 Tim. 4:3-4

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thess. 2:8-12 (NKJV; emphasis added)

ALERT

The contemporary body of corporate Seventh-day Adventists and many, many Independent Ministries are sleepwalking far behind the march of prophetic events.  It is high time to wake up and WATCH!

"The hour has come, the hour is striking and striking at you, the hour and the end!"  Eze. 7:6 (Moffatt)

The words of Jesus Christ Himself about His Second Coming - Matt. 24:

21For then shall be great tribulation , such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. [Cf. Dan. 11:45-12:1] 23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.  [Cf. Isa.  25Behold, I have told you before. 26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. [Wrote John the Revelator - Rev. 1:7, "Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him" and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. (Cf. Rev. 19)]  . . .30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.  (Emphasis added.)

Of the great antichrist God has revealed through His prophet Isaiah:

12How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (Cf. Isa. 2:1-6, 19-21; bold and italic emphasis added)

(The Roman Catholic Social Doctrine - Ascendancy of the Roman Catholic dogma in the body politic of the United States.)


The insight of A. T. Jones that needs to be kept in mind as Roman Catholic legislation proliferates throughout America - "The papacy is very impatient of any restraining bonds"  more . . .

Ellen G. White: "When the leading churches of the United States, uniting upon such points of doctrine as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and to sustain their institutions, then Protestant America will have formed an image of the Roman hierarchy, and the infliction of civil penalties upon dissenters will inevitably result." (GC 445.1)

"When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with Spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and Republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan, and that the end is near." (5T 451.)

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6

We do not go deep enough in our search for truth. Every soul who believes present truth will be brought where he will be required to give a reason of the hope that is in him. The people of God will be called upon to stand before kings, princes, rulers, and great men of the earth, and they must know that they do know what is truth. (Review and Herald, February 18, 1890; TM 119)

LATEST GENERAL REPORTS:-

Certain of the popular positions mentioned approvingly in some hyperlinked reports, essays, and blogs on this web page will of necessity cause reactions of strong disagreement, or at the very least discomfort, on the part of many readers. Regrettably, these positions cannot be separated from the core issues in the reports which prove the fulfillment of major end-times prophecies, and may of themselves be fulfillment of the prophecy of the Apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 3:1-5

LINK TO 2014

NEW►  The treaty between the Vatican and the "State of Palestine" first announced in May, 2015, has now been signed. Israel is angry, but what can she do except slow down the inexorable march of events towards fulfillment of Dan. 11:45:-

From [D]@gmail.com:

Vatican signs first treaty with 'State of Palestine,' backs two-state solution

Israel expressed “regret” at the Vatican's decision to recognize the Palestinian Authority as a state and the signing of the accord, hinting it could have implications for future cooperation between Israel and the Vatican.

“This hasty step damages the prospects for advancing a peace agreement, and harms the international effort to convince the PA to return to direct negotiations with Israel,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The statement said that Israel also regrets “the one sided texts in the agreement which ignore the historic rights of the Jewish people in the Land of Israel and the places holy to Judaism in Jerusalem.”

Israel, the statement read, “cannot accept the unilateral determinations in the agreement which do not take into account Israel's essential interests and the special historic status of the Jewish people in Jerusalem.”

Vatican Formally Recognizes Palestinian State by Signing Treaty

The Vatican on Friday signed a treaty with the “state of Palestine,” a development that the church hopes will lead to improved relations between Israel and the Palestinians.

Vatican signs first treaty with 'State of Palestine', Israel angered

The Vatican signed its first treaty with the "State of Palestine" on Friday, calling for "courageous decisions" to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and backing a two-state solution.

The treaty, which made official the Vatican's de facto recognition of Palestine since 2012, angered Israel, which called it "a hasty step (that) damages the prospects for advancing a peace agreement".

Israel also said it could have implications on its future diplomatic relations with the Vatican. . . .

Archbishop Paul Gallagher, the Vatican's foreign minister, said at the signing that he hoped it could be a "stimulus to bringing a definitive end to the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which continues to cause suffering for both parties".

He called for peace negotiations held directly between Israelis and Palestinians to resume and lead to a two-state solution. "This certainly requires courageous decisions, but it will also offer a major contribution to peace and stability in the region," he said. . .

The Vatican is particularly keen to have a greater diplomatic role in the Middle East, from where many Christians have fled because of conflicts in Syria, Iraq and other countries. . .

The U.N. General Assembly adopted a resolution in 2012 recognizing Palestine as an observer non-member state. This was welcomed at the time by the Vatican, which has the same observer non-member status at the United Nations.

Since then the Vatican has de facto recognized a "State of Palestine" and the pope referred to it by that name when he visited the Holy Land last year.

Some 135 members of the United Nations recognize Palestine, nearly 70 percent of the total. By comparison, 160 of the UN's 193 members recognize Israel.

Last October, Sweden became the first major European country to acknowledge Palestine, a decision that drew condemnation from Israel and has since led to tense relations between the two.

Contrary to the Israeli Foreign Ministry statement the Vatican does not act hastily, and must have anticipated Israel's negative reaction. This is basically a hostile action designed to force Israeli co-operation. Israel is threatened with increasing isolation. There is a saying that "When the big wind blows, the tree must bend or break."

NEW►  An article on the Ten Commandments being written on the heart, in the Pacific Union Recorder for March, 2006, caused John V. Stevens, Sr., long-serving Religious Liberty leader, to write a letter to the Editor. Elder Stevens had detected some of the wine of Roman Babylon in the article:-

From [I]@yahoo.com:

Abortion Commandment?

Here is the entire text of the letter:

Having served the Pacific Union Conference for 20 years as PARL director, I naturally was interested in the Ten Commandments being written in the heart. Ten Commandments issues mentioned were abortion, marriage, divorce, and homosexuality,”

Many people view abortion as killing, therefore a Ten Commandments issue. However, nowhere in Scripture are we told that abortion is a crime, or killing, or even a sin.

We have been subtly conditioned by religious propaganda from the fundamentalists. The abortion issue is the catalyst that will establish religion in our nation and then everything else will follow. Only two passages in the Scriptures deal with an induced miscarriage.

Exodus chapter 21 treats the fetus as property and one causing the accidental miscarriage is required to pay a fine. If a fetus were a person, it would be a manslaughter charge.

The other passage is the trial of jealousy in Numbers chapter 5. In that passage, the husband suspects his wife is pregnant by infidelity and God gave a law requiring the suspected wife to go through a procedure that causes an abortion if she is guilty and pregnant. If she is innocent, nothing happens to her.

E.G. White never touched the subject in spite of the raging controversy on abortion in the latter 19th century. We need to guard against letting our national religious culture change us, for a day is coming when Sunday worship and Sabbath desecration will be national religious culture with heavy penalties for non-conformists.

John V. Stevens, Sr.

Surprise, Ariz.

The warning in this letter was prescient, and is as timely as ever. In the abortion controversy those who, on the basis of Roman Catholic manipulation of the Scriptures [cf. "Certain Bible texts,"], are at war with a woman's legal right to exercise freedom of choice, are winning the hearts and minds of millions, including many, many, well-meaning Seventh-day Adventists. Here are reports from both sides of the issue:

Pro-Life Movement is Winning the Abortion Battle: 300 Pro-Life Bills Filed This Session

The Hill reports that more than a dozen states have passed pro-life bills in at least one chamber; and Arizona, Idaho, West Virginia and Arkansas have all passed bills in both chambers. In a statement, the Guttmacher Institute said that the trend toward these two policies reflects “a disturbing combination of attempts to curtail access in both the early and later months of pregnancy. The laws could ultimately deprive women of options and leave them with “a greatly reduced time frame to get the care they need.”

3 Signs That We’re Winning The Abortion Battle

This is what a losing battle looks like, folks. Oh, the road to victory is long, and I expect it may get worse before it gets better — we have a government that couldn’t care less about the consent of the governed after all — but the American people are, I hope, finally waking up. When people begin really pushing back on late term abortions, it’s going to be a lot easier to impose restrictions and enhance the definitions of personhood. . .

Here's Proof That the Anti-Abortion Movement Is Winning
Anti-abortion restrictions slowed down in 2014. That's not good news.

But another phenomenon that paints a less hopeful picture for reproductive rights supporters also exists. Though the rate of passage for restrictive laws has slowed down this year, in certain states, this is because much of the damage has already been done. In these states, it seems, the pro-life movement is winning. Reproductive rights were one of many issues for which the 2010 midterms served as a turning point, thanks to the wave of newly elected conservative state legislators taking office around the country. “We’ve seen 226 abortion restrictions enacted over the past four years,” Elizabeth Nash, State Issues Manager at Guttmacher, told me. “That speaks to some states enacting multiple restrictions, and perhaps the urgency in some of those states to adopt further restrictions is just not there.” In other words, the pace of anti-abortion legislation has slowed down not because the movement has stalled, but because they’ve already got much of what they want.

The current state of affairs is not just a victory for the Fundamentalists; it is a victory for the USCCB's Pastoral Plan and the Roman Catholic agenda in the United States and the world!

But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Matt. 15:9.
