as the life or death problem of our people in this time of the end
F o r e w o r d
In the book of Revelation all the history of the new Testament has been divided into seven periods of Churches. The Church of Ephesus takes the first period in the first century. This Church was established by apostle Paul. Whereas the very last period is the period of the Laodicean Church in the time of the end. This Church was established by Mrs. Ellen G. White the prophet in 1844. However, the angels of the Churches were usually established later respectively. The angel of the Church is the organization of the leadership of the Church.
Therefore, when the Laodicean Church emerged on earth in 1844, the angel of the Laodicean Church was just born in 1863. So the Church gave birth to the Laodicean angel 19 years later in the Unites States of America. And that is the General Conference of SDA in America. John the Revelator said,
“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day (the Sabbath), and heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last : and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven Churches which are in Asia : unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelfia, and unto Laodicea.” – Revelation 1 : 10 – 11.
The book of Revelation, according to John’s statement above, was addressed to the all seven Churches. However, since the book was just revealed and interpreted in the time of the end, then it would have been just delivered to only the seventh Church, which is the Laodicean Church of the time of the end. This is the Laodicean Church which is in the prophetic word called “the Seven Churches.” That is, the same Church that would have ever traveled all the history of the New Testament Churches ever since the first Church of Ephesus. The servant of the Lord, Mrs. White ever said :
“In the Revelation all the book of the Bible meet and end. Here is the complement of the book of Daniel. One is a prophecy, the other a revelation.” – The Acts of the Apostles, p. 585.
It means that when the book of Daniel was successfully interpreted and revealed in the time of the end, then the book of Revelation would have followed suit. And then all the books of the Bible would have been interpreted and revealed also. And all of them should have been delivered to the “Seven Churches”, which is the Laodicean Church or the Church of Seventh-day Adventists.
of the Angel of the Laodicean Church
and His work
When the work to interpret all the books that meet and end in the Revelation was accomplished, it must then be submitted to the Church of the Laodiceans. We are here to follow how the books were submitted to the Laodiceans or the people of the Church of Seventh day Adventists.
Revelation 3 : 14 – 17 :
“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then, because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing: and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”
It is clear that the message from the Lord was not directly submitted to the Laodicean Church, but through the Organization of her angel, which is the General Conference of SDA Church.
Therefore, with the words of rejection that says : “I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing more….:” from the Organization of the angel of Laodicea, this is enough to show that the message has been opposed.
And the result is that the servant of the Lord Mrs. Ellen G. White was then instructed by the Lord to write in the Review and Herald of Feb. 25, 1902 A Call for a Spiritual Revival and a Spiritual Reformation. However, up to the time she died in 1915 the Call was not as yet realized. It began to be realized when Bro. Victor T. Houteff came in 1929 to unite his message of the Shepherd’s Rod with the message of Spirit of Prophecy by Mrs. White into the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY of Revelation 19 : 10. This is THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY that is to enlighten the earth beginning in the Church of the Laodiceans ourselves.
The Call for a spiritual revival has led us to fully observing the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY as the Rules of Implementation of the basic Law of the Ten Commandments. And the Call for a spiritual Reformation has led us to re-organize the Organization of the General Conference of SDA into the Organization of the General Association of Davidian SDA according to the rules of those stipulated in The Leviticus of Davidian SDA.
The consequence is that the Organization of the General Conference of SDA as the angel of Laodicean Church should have been spewed out of Jesus’ mouth in 1935. This should have been understood, because it is impossible for the Lord to bless both Organizations to work for Him, whereas they are very much opposing each other.
Mount Carmel Center is the
re-organized body of the General Conference of SDA
In the process of revival of our Church as the result of the General Conference of SDA opposing the message of “Justification by Faith” in the Minneapolis Conference in 1888, then according to the Call for a spiritual revival and a spiritual reformation from Mrs. White here below :
“God calls for a spiritual revival and a spiritual reformation. Unless this takes place, those who are lukewarm will continue to grow more abhorrent to the Lord, until He will refuse to acknowledge them as His children.
“A revival and a reformation must take place under the ministration of the Holy Spirit. Revival and reformation are two different things. Revival signifies a renewal of spiritual life, a quickening of the powers of mind and heart, a resurrection from spiritual death. Reformation signifies reorganization, …………... “ -- Review and Herald, 25 February 1902.
then the Organization of General Conference of SDA had been successfully re-organized by the servant of the Lord Bro. Victor T. Houteff into the General Association of Davidian SDA in Waco, Texas, USA. In 1935. And In the same year the servant of the Lord then wrote for us in the following words,
“Mt. Carmel now honored with Headquarters home.”
“We are happy to announce that the headquarters office of the sealing message moved from Waco to Mt. Carmel Center on September 29 to its new and permanent home location for the proclamation of the “True Witness to the Laodiceans.” Testimonies for the Church, vol. 3, p. 253. Therefore, we request all the brethren in present truth to approach the throne of grace with thanksgiving and praises to our heavenly Father for His merciful kindness and many blessings. ………………………..
“The buildings that were under construction being finished and ready for occupancy have brought a great relieve to all of us and by the 16th of this month, though very congested, Mt Carmel’s subjects who immigrated from other states will be living on this h o l y m o u n t.” --- The Symbolic Code. vol. 1, No. 16, p. 1.
It could be understood now that what is meant by Mount Carmel by Bro. Houteff is a location that lies several miles from Waco in Texas, USA. The Headquarters of the sealing message first moved from Los Angeles in California to Waco in Texas. When the buildings that was under construction being finished and ready for occupancy, then on September 29, 1935 was the Headquarters moved to Mount Carmel as its new and permanent home location. And here ever since was the Headquarters established to become the Mount Carmel center for the proclamation of the sealing message up to the close of probation.
The Mount Carmel or the Mount Carmel Center, therefore, was never before known up to 1935. We may certainly ask to ourselves, where did the name come from ? Bro. Houteff said :
“It might be interesting to Elder G. to know that the naming of our “camp” “Mt. Carmel Center” came about in the same way as the naming of our publications “The Shepherd’s Rod, for we did not know before hand that it was in prophecy until after our attention was called to Micah 7 : 14 and Amos 1 : 2. In the prophecy of Amos we read :
“The Lord will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.” --- Amos 1 : 2.
“With a few comments on the above scripture, any Bible student will recognize at a glance that it applies at the time of the end, as explained by the gospel prophet : “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills, ……..for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” (Isa. 2 : 2, 3), which the language of Amos is, ‘Utter his voice from Jerusalem.’ Looking to this same time Joel put it as follows : “And the Lord shall utter His voice before His army : for His camp is very great : for He is strong that executeth His word : for the day of the Lord is great and terrible; and who can abide it ?” (Joel 2 : 11).
“As Amos says, “The habitations of the shepherds shall mourn,” it is obvious that Amos’ prophecy is yet future, for the word ‘habitations’ places is in the plural form, which cannot be applied to one shepherd’s habitation (denomination) but to all that be in existence at that time. The term ‘shepherds’ means, as understood, the same as the ‘ancient men which were before the house’ --- the ministers. Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, p. 211. Note that the shepherds are not themselves to mourn but their habitations (their houses); that is, the membership of their Churches, which fact reveals that it will be thus at the time when the sleeping multitudes in the churches awake from their spiritual insensibility and find that the shepherds whom they implicitly trusted for their salvation and deceived all those who followed them.
“The prophet Jeremiah in the following words explains that this wailing by those who are thus deceived will be at the close of probation. For they shall say “the harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.’ (Jer. 8 : 20). That is, after the harvest, the time in which they could have been saved, they will realize that the probationary time has closed. Then ‘the habitations of the shepherd shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.” -- The Symbolic Code, vol. 11, No. 12, pages. 30, 31.
The Mount Carmel Center as prophesied above will be permanently located in Waco, Texas, USA, up to the close of probation for the Laodicean Church. That is, up to the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And after the close of probation the top of Carmel shall wither.
And since the shepherds and their habitations prophesied above were all those of Mount Carmel and its surrounding areas, let us not mix them with the angel of Laodicea and his staunch followers in the world. They have been spewed out of Jesus’ mouth long beforehand ever since 1935. These are to share the same fate of those habitations and their shepherds in Mount Carmel after the close of probation.
The habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, after knowing that they have been deceived by their own shepherds, whereas the shepherds themselves shall not mourn. For to whom shall they mourn ?
The shepherds of Mount Carmel could not mourn, but their habitations shall mourn. Their habitations represent the staunch followers of the Carmel Shepherds, who shall mourn after being fully aware that they all have been knocked out by the “unsuspected foes --- from professed friends of the gospel, who are no less pious than were priests in Christ’s day.” Long before he died Bro. Houteff had ever warned us in the following words :
“Everything that can be done against God’s message of today will be done with even a greater vengeance than was manifest against Heaven’s message in the days of Christ’s first advent, for the Devil knows that if he loses now, he loses forever --- that he is to have no other chance. Unparalleled, therefore, is the urgency that every eleventh-hour church member now quickly and solidly brace himself against the Enemy’s effort to deliver a knockout blow. We must be alert, too, to realize that the blow is to come from surprisingly unsuspected foes --- from professed friends of the gospel, who are no less pious than were the priests in Christ’s day. It is, moreover, but to be expected that the Adversary will employ every agency possible to prevent the Lord from disclosing to view His now obscure 144.000 first fruit servants, who are to go gather in the second fruits (Revelation 7 : 9). The Enemy will try everything conceivable to confuse, becloud, and cover up the Truth, especially on the subject of the 144.000.” -- The White House Recruiter, p. 33.
The above statement by Bro. Houteff, began to be fulfilled not long after his death in 1955. There were two times knocked out blows delivered by the Enemy to those who survived the death of the servant of the Lord. The first blow had successfully knocked out Mrs. Houteff and her Organization, so that the Mount Carmel Center should have been liquidated and sold to the Presbyterian Church in 1962. The Mount Carmel was then under their control up to 1991. But the second time blow would no more come right from the Enemy or Satan, but just from the professed friends of the gospel, who are no less pious than were the priests in Christ’s day.
Since the priests in Christ’s day were known of their Organization of the Sanhedrin, the antitype, then the professed friends of the gospel of this time of the end would unavoidably be the typical Sanhedrin of today. Therefore the Sanhedrin of today would be none other than the present General Association of Davidian SDA or the Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, USA. They are the people who have ever bought back the Mount Carmel in 1991, and are now in full control of the Mount Carmel up to the close of probation in the future when the top of Carmel shall wither.
When the top of Carmel shall wither
After the habitations of the Shepherds in Mount Carmel mourn the loss of their opportunity to be saved at the end of the harvest, they then revile the shepherds for having deceived them for so long time. So let it be understood that both the shepherds and their habitations in Carmel would perish altogether. But on the other hand Bro. Houteff also said :
“Thus shall the top of Carmel wither, and those who do not take heed to the word : “Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, at length will be alarmed that their opportunity for accepting the truth has slipped away. Then in their hasty, frenzied effort to acquaint themselves with present truth which went forth from the top of Carmel, to their surprise they shall find that Carmel has finished its work, its inhabitants removed, and probation closed, at which time the inhabitants of “Carmel” can but repeat, ‘the harvest is past, the summer is ended, and w e h a v e n o t h i n g m o r e f o r y o u.” --- The Symbolic Code, Vol. 11, No. 12, p. 33.
The habitations of Carmel and their shepherds at the first instance are those who are now dominating Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas and all their habitations in most of the world.
Whereas the “i n h a b i t a n t s o f “C a r m e l“ at the time of probation closed will be none other than the 144.000 elected saints of God. These are now scattered outside the Mount Carmel in Texas, but they are always under the guiding hand of the Lord Jesus Himself. Read Zechariah 13 : 7 !
After the death of the
servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff in 1955
After the death of the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff, then according to the Leviticus of Davidian SDA he must be temporarily represented by his vice President. That is the reason why Mrs. Houteff then took the office of vice Presidency ever since. However, since Mrs. Houteff herself and her fellow workers were fallen through the knockout blows delivered by the Enemy, then the Mount Carmel Center should have been liquidated and sold to the Presbyterian Church in 1962.
The wise would have questioned to himself : Why did the Lord permit the Organization of His message of salvation to be so easy fallen under the power of His Enemy ? Was it the result of Mrs. Houteff’s fault ? Or was it according to His own will that the Mount Carmel Center must be dissolved? The answer is : It is impossible for the all mighty God of Heaven deliberately let His Mount Carmel Center in Texas to be removed from us. No way, but due to the fact that the Mount Carmel Center in Texas has accomplished its task, to have the Organization of the angel of Laodicea be re-organized, and to let the people know that the angel of Laodicea has been spewed out of Jesus’ mouth. It is, therefore, no more use for us to blame Mrs. Houteff in that case.
After the sale of the Mount Carmel Center, most of the Elders of the Davidian SDA in America began to look for a new location for the next Organization to be established soon. They have time and again examined the flow of the river of the prophecy of Ezekiel 47 which is eastward, but to no avail. Whereas some of the brethren suggested to return to the original location in Waco, Texas. But through two consecutive Sessions held in 1988 and 1990 in New York, the majority of those attending the Sessions refused to return to the original location in Waco, Texas. So the idea to return to the original location in Waco, Texas failed to gain the majority votes of the people.
Nevertheless, some of the brethren brave themselves to return to the original location of the Mount Carmel Center. And thus was the original location successfully to be bought again in 1991. The problem for all of us now is,
Who is worthy to represent Jesus
to proclaim the message of the Eleventh-hour Call
up to the close of probation for the Church ?
The message of the Eleventh-hour Call came from Jesus the house holder and the owner of the vineyard, to those standing idle in the market places, or the laymen, who made up the Church of the Laodiceans in the time of the end. The servant of the Lord, Mrs. White said :
“The words of Christ apply to the Church: ‘Why stand ye here all the day idle?’ Why are you not at work in some capacity in His vineyard? Again and again He has bidden you: ‘Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.’ But this gracious call from heaven has been disregarded by the large majority.“ – 5 Testimonies, pp. 203.
The words of Christ apply only to the lay members of the Church. Not to those workers of the Organization. This is the main target of the message of the Eleventh-hour Call ever since the beginning.
As a divinely appointed prophet Bro. Victor T. Houteff had been appointed by the Lord to represent Him “to revive the Church” through the message of the Eleventh-hour Call in this time of the end. And then “to re-organize the General Conference of SDA into the General Association of Davidian SDA in Mount Carmel in Waco, Texas, according to the Call for a spiritual revival and a spiritual reformation by Mrs. White.
Thus let us never think that the Organization of Mount Carmel Center is to represent Jesus the Owner of the vineyard to present the eleventh-hour Call to those standing idle in the market places. Not at all ! No wonder, therefore, when Bro. Houteff died his organization should have been by itself dissolved.
Nevertheless, however, the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff must unavoidably be represented by other divinely appointed agency after his death. And that is the reason why Mrs. White said :
“It is a fatal mistake to suppose that the work of soul saving depends alone upon the ministry (organization) ………. God will send forth into His vineyard many who have not been dedicated to the ministry by the laying on of hands.” -- The Acts of the Apostles, p. 110. (In brackets added).
And then the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff also said :
“………….. as teachers of The Shepherd’s Rod (the official publications of the Davidian SDA Association) we must therefore, teach only in the light of the Rod those passages which in one way or another need to be interpreted. Thus only will all Present Truth believers ever become of the same mind, seeing eye to eye and speaking the same things (1 Cor. 1 : 10; 1 Peter 3 : 8; Isa. 52 : 8).” --- Fundamental Beliefs of Davidian SDA, pp. 54, 55.
Thus may it be clearly understood, that after the death of the servant of the Lord, Bro. Houteff, he would have been succeeded by the divinely appointed ministers and teachers, who are not at all known by the Organization. They would have proclaimed the message of the Eleventh-hour Call more aggressively to those standing idle in the market, in the SDA churches in the whole world, until the all true Davidian SDA of the Lord could have been seeing eye to eye, having the same mind, and speaking the same things. That is, until all the 144.000 elected saints of the Lord is ready for translation to the Kingdom in the Palestine.
After the death of the servant
of the Lord, Bro. Houteff in 1955 then is fulfilled
the prophecy of Zechariah 13 : 6, 7
Concerning the death of the servant of the Lord, Prophet Zechariah had ever prophesied in the following words :
“And one shall say unto him, what are these wounds in thine hands ? Then he shall answer, those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.
“Awake, O sword against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts : smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered : and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.” --- Zechariah 13 : 6, 7.
The prophetic words of Zechariah above have ever met their fulfillment on the personality of Jesus at His first advent in the Palestine. However, since all the prophecies of the Old Testament have just been interpreted and revealed in the time of the end, by the end time prophets, then the prophecy of Zechariah 13 : 6, and 7 must inevitably be fulfilled once again on the personality of Bro. Victor T. Houteff, as the last of the all end time prophets. This should be understood, because it is impossible that most of the verses applied in this time of the end, whereas only one or two verses applied in the times of the past.
Thus, let it be understood why after the death of the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff in 1955, then the Organization of Mount Carmel Center of the Lord as a means of unity for all the Davidians of SDA in the time of the end could no more be permitted to live longer.
Thus it is, that nevertheless it must be admitted that by the death of the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff in 1955, then ever since the Organization of Mount Carmel Center would have accomplished its mission for good and for ever in this time of the end. And to that end, in 1954 a year before he died he has been instructed by the Lord to write in the Symbolic Code as follows:
“Now again, with even greater emphasis toward reaching the goal, Mount Carmel Center makes the following announcement to all faithful Davidians who will realize that this good news is perhaps nothing short of a sign. Mount Carmel Center by commencing to first sell its excess property, then the whole, is symbolically leading the way to the program that is outlined by the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy ………” – The Symbolic Code Vol. 10, No. 1, page 4.
In the time of Bro. Houteff Mount Carmel Center had commenced to first sell its excess property. However, up to the time he died in 1955, Mount Carmel Center had not as yet sold all of its property. But in 1962 under the leadership of Mrs. Houteff as vice President of the Mount Carmel Center, the whole Mount Carmel Center was then liquidated and then sold to the Presbyterian Church. The Mount Carmel Center was then dissolved for good and for evermore.
Thus it is, that the Presbyterian Church has taken control of the whole complex of the Mount Carmel for about 30 years, from 1962 up to 1991, after which they again sold it to a group of people who named themselves “The General Association of Davidian SDA” or “The Mount Carmel Center” in Waco, Texas, USA. This is the Mount Carmel Center in Waco. Tx, who are to control the location up to the time when the top of Carmel shall wither in the future.
Every intelligent truth seeker would have questioned to himself : Is the re-establishment of the Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, in 1991, necessary to help the Lord God to turn His hands upon the little ones, as those prophesied in Zechariah 13 : 7 ? Or just conversely to help the Enemy delivering his knockout blows on the people who affiliated with them at the Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, USA ?
All the Davidian SDA who survived the death of their prophet Bro. Victor T. Houteff, according to the prophecy, should have been divided into two categories of people : The wise virgins who are to be members of the 144.000 in the future on the one side, and the wise virgins with guile in their mouths on the other side. Or in other words : Those of wheat categorized ones on the one side and those of chaff categorized ones on the other side. Thus, according to the prophecy of Zechariah 13 : 7, those “little ones “who are under the guiding hand of the Lord should be the members of the 144.000 elected saints of God in the future. Whereas conversely, those who again re-organized the Mount Carmel Center in 1991 will be no more recognized in the prophecy, either through Zechariah the prophet nor through any other old Testament prophets.
The F a t e of the
Organizations prophesied in Ezekiel chapter 47
The prophecy of the great river of Ezekiel chapter 47 has a double application. That is, beside predicting the history of our Church of the Laodiceans, the prophecy of Ezekiel 47 is also predicting the Church in the future during the time of the Loud Cry. We are to know this from the words of the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff here below :
"And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from En-gedi even unto En-eglaim; they [the two cities] shall be a place to spread forth nets." (Ezek. 47 : 10.) These two cities reveal that the fish are caught in two places, En-gedi (S.D.A. church) where the 144,000 are gathered -- the first fruits. En-eglaim (Babylon or the world) where the great multitude of Revelation 7 : 9 are gathered. The diagram on the chart, page 294, represents the S.D.A. church (En-gedi) as it becomes the "House of David," and the place of the river (En-eglaim) denotes the world. The stream from the fountain where it first starts to the east gate, represents the 144,000, and the river stands for the great multitude. "There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early." (Psa. 46 : 4, 5.) --- The Shepherd’ s Rod II, pp. 297 – 298.
For having a double application, which is to apply in two places, then the progress of winning souls in En-gedi will be “the t y p e” and the progress of winning souls in En-eglaim will be “the a n t i - t y p e” of those events. The unique of this prophecy is that just the progress of winning souls in En-eglaim was first mentioned, whereas the progress of winning souls in En-gedi during the Laodicean period is yet to be found. Nevertheless all the result of the progress of winning souls in En-gedi, the t y p e, should have been found, because all the anti-typical results in En-eglaim have been revealed in the prophecy of Ezekiel 47.
From the fact that the Lord has no more now blessed any of His Organization to be agent of unity in this time of the end, then this prophecy of Ezekiel 47 would have been fulfilled for having informed us through the anti-typical event as follows :
"And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from En-gedi even unto En-eglaim; they [the two cities] shall be a place to spread forth nets." (Ezek. 47 : 10.) These two cities reveal that the fish are caught in two places, En-gedi (S.D.A. church) where the 144,000 are gathered -- the first fruits. En-eglaim (Babylon or the world) where the great multitude of Revelation 7 : 9 are gathered.”
"But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt." (Ezek. 47 : 11.) The "marishes" and the "miry places" represent denominations and sects separate of the "mighty river," and that they shall not be saved, or healed. "Turned to salt," means eternally lost, as was Lot's wife. "And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.... Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot.... Remember Lot's wife." (Luke 17 : 26, 28, 32.) - The Shepherd’ s Rod II, pp. 297 – 298.
Although the 144.000 elected saints of God would have successfully won so many souls in all the world (Rev. 7 : 9), they would have failed to save all the Organizations of Churches and sects in the world. They all would have turned to salt, which means eternal lost, as was Lot’s wife.
So in its t y p i c a l event now in the period of En-gedi or the Laodicean Church, the Organizations that no more could be saved by the message of the Eleventh-hour Call are among others : the angel of the Laodicean Church, those Mount Carmel Centers in several places in USA, and so on. And all their diehard followers in all the world would have shared the same fate.
Thus it is, that to those present truth believers in the world today, you are kindly advised to cast away all your idols, either the idol that walks of those whom you fully trust for your salvation or the manmade idol of Organization of which you mostly boast of up to now. When the top of Carmel shall wither in the near future, it might be too late for you to admit your failures.
of the bay and grisled-horses of the
prophecy of Zechariah chapter 6
After the establishment of the Organization of Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas by Bro. Victor T. Houteff in 1935, then ever since the chariot which represents the Church of Laodicea or Seventh day Adventist Church would have been led by two leadership of Organizations, or to be drawn by two pairs of horses : the grisled horses on the one side that represent the General Conference of SDA, and the bay horses on the other side .that represent the Organization of Mount Carmel Center or the General Association of Davidian SDA and Bro. Houteff its leader.
The grisled horses take the chariot of the Laodicean Church of Seventh day Adventists to the south or Egypt that represents paganism. But the bay horses take the chariot that they may go to walk to and fro in the earth, because the bay horses represent the 144.000 elected saints of God, who are to go into the entire world to accomplish the proclamation of the gospel of the kingdom at the end of probation.
Up to this time the chariot that represents the Laodicean Church or Seventh day Adventist Church could not as yet move away, because each of those horses draws the chariot to the direction that is against each other. The one is to the south, whereas the other is to walk to and fro in the earth.
After the death of the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff in 1955, the Organization of Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, could not survive any longer. It was then liquidated and then sold to the Presbyterian Church in 1962. However, since the task to draw the chariot to and fro in the earth was not as yet accomplished, then it must yet to be realized in the future.
Now, since Bro. Houteff as the divinely appointed prophet is the only messenger of the Eleventh-hour Call, that could not be succeeded by any Organization of Mount Carmel Center, other than only the divinely appointed teachers and ministers, who have ever been appointed without laying on of hands, then these teachers and ministers and their staunch followers would have been parts of the 144.000 elects of God, who are to survive the death of the servant of God ever since. And these are they represented by the bay-horses.
How many are they now in exact number, only God knows. This should have been understood, because according to the prophecy of Zechariah 13 : 7 all of us who survived the death of Bro. Houteff in 1955 up to now are now scattered. Nevertheless the Lord has promised to have His hand turned on all of us the little ones. Therefore, all of us are now under the guiding hand of the Lord Jesus Himself.
As soon as the number of all the saints (the 144.000) completely reached, then all pairs of the horses would be cut free from each other. Just at that time the top of Carmel shall wither, and then we come at the great and dreadful day of the Lord. The day is truly great for those the 144.000 elects of God, who are to be sealed on their foreheads with the mark of deliverance , whereas the day will be very dreadful for those of the grisled horses and those left in the Chariot. For all of them will be slaughtered as those prophesied in Ezekiel chapter 9. The calamity would be even worse for those who fully trust their salvation to the Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas after knowing that the summer has ended and the harvest is past, whereas they are not as yet delivered.

What is meant by “THE ORGANIZATION” in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY deliberated in this article is limited only to the Headquarters of God’s own Organization, established by His divinely appointed agencies, such as the “Sanhedrin” in the time of Jesus, or the General Conference of SDA, established by Mrs. White and her fellow pioneers in 1863., and the Mount Carmel Center or the General Association of Davidian SDA established by Bro. Victor T. Houteff in Waco, Texas, in 1935.
In 1888 in the historical Minneapolis Conference of the General Conference of SDA in USA, the ORGANIZATION of GOD had ever opposed His message of “Justification by faith” sent to them through Elders Waggoner and Jones. And later in 1929 the Call for a spiritual revival and a spiritual reformation by Mrs. White to be realized through Bro. Victor T. Houteff and his message of the Shepherd’s Rod, was also totally rejected. And even the messenger of the message himself was dismissed of his Church membership.
In 1935 the ORGANIZATION of the angel of Laodicea was re-organized into the General Association of Davidian SDA or the Mount Carmel Center in Waco, Texas, USA. And then at the same occasion the angel of Laodicea and all his ministers of the gospel were spewed out of Jesus’ mouth.
The Organization of Mount Carmel Center of the Lord in Waco, Texas, could have survived only up to the time of the death of its founder. As the last of the end time prophets of God, Bro. Victor T. Houteff and his Organization had accomplished their work allotted to them in 1955. After that, and even up to this very day the Lord Jesus would have taken the rein in His own hand. And He would be assisted by His own divinely appointed ministers and teachers, who are to be ordained without the laying on of hands. That is, without the knowledge of any Organization of Mount Carmel Center in the world today. Let us remember, therefore, that the prophecy of Zechariah 13 : 7 is fully fulfilled today, even ever since the death of the servant of the Lord in 1955. Thus said the Lord :
“Awake, O sword against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts : smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered : and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.” --- Zechariah 13 : 7.
That is, though the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff had died, and although all the people have been now scattered in many parts of the Laodicea without any strong Organization of the Lord as an agent of unity among us, the loving kind Jesus had promised us that He would have turned His hand upon the little ones. That He would have taken the rein in His own hand. Let us fully trust in Him, that only through His guiding hand upon the little ones, we may be made to see eye to eye, and to have the same mind, and to speak the same things. And just this is the first main identity of the 144.000 elected saints of God in the future.
