The Only Way of
How to Civilize the Love of God
“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”
(1 John 4 : 8)
The people whose religion ever mentioned the name of God as the Lord and Creator of the earth would have not unwittingly based their religion upon the teachings of Moses the prophet. Moses was the one the first ever known in history to provide us with the Holy Bible which comprises his books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Number and the Deuteronomy, and still many others.
Since not only Moses the prophet was commissioned by the Lord to provide us with the Holy Bible, we would certainly have also other servants of the Lord, which at last we will come across them one by one up to the apostle Paul and his epistles and the apostle John and his book of Revelation. The book of Revelation is still known up to this very time of the end as the mysterious book of the Bible. It is the last written in the year 96.
One of the statements of Moses which is truly very important up to this very moment of the time of the end is as follows :
“The secret things belong unto the Lord our God : but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” – Deuteronomy 29 : 29.
The secret things belong unto the Lord, that is, they do not belong unto us. Nevertheless if ever there is something still mysterious in the Bible, such as the one related to the seven thunders in Revelation 10 : 4, we may be sure that such mystery will never be interpreted for us in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY.
But those things which are revealed in the Bible, even the mysterious things in the book of Revelation, they all belong to the people of God even up to the end of time, that all of them should be obeyed and taken in the practical religion of the people, that the Law of Ten Commandments of God may be fully implemented.
Thus could it be understood that the Holy Bible as the oldest religious book ever known in the world, it would unavoidably be also acknowledged as containing the Basic Law of the heavenly Kingdom of God and its Rules of Implementation therein.
One more statement from Apostle Paul which is mostly missed the attention of Christians of today is as follows :
“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ : till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ : that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.” — Ephesians 4 : 11 – 14.
Though all the apostles have died in the first century, we have yet to be sure that the Lord still have His appointed prophets and teachers to take charge over His flock up to the end of time. The Laodicean Church ever since the beginning in 1844 was factually under the divinely guidance through Mrs. Ellen G. White and Bro. Victor T. Houteff up to the time they died respectively. And that is why concerning Moses and the writing of books that make the Holy Bible, the servant of the Lord Mrs. White has ever said :
“During the first twenty-five hundred years of human history, there was no written revelation. Those who had been taught of God, communicated their knowledge to others, and it was handed down from father to son, through successive generations. The preparation of the written word began in the time of Moses. Inspired revelations were then embodied in an inspired book. This work continued during the long period of sixteen hundred years --- from Moses, the historian of creation and the law, to John, the recorder of the most sublime truths of the gospel.” -- The Great Controversy, p.v.
The religious teachings which had been taught to Adam and Eve as the first couple of man and woman who had been created to inhabit this planet up to those things taught to the Israelites in Egypt in the time of Moses, the same had been documented by Moses under the inspiration of God Himself, 2.500 years later after the creation of Adam and Eve to occupy their Eden home. Thus, according to Moses and his statement above, that “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God : but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” – Deuteronomy 29 : 29.
It would be self-evident that the spiritual things ever taught by the Lord God Himself since the beginning of creation of man and woman should have been consisted of (1) ALL THE WORDS OF THE LAW OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS on the one side, and (2) THOSE THINGS WHICH HAVE BEEN REVEALED UP TO THE END OF TIME OF THIS WORLD HISTORY, on the other side.
All the words of the Law which contain THE TEN COMMANDMENTS embodied the BASIC LAW or THE CONSTITUTION OF THE KINGDOM OF G O D in Heaven. And those things revealed are THE BY-LAWS that contain all the Rules of Implementation of the BASIC LAW.
How did Jesus teach to civilize His Love
through the Ten Commandments of the Law of His Kingdom
From the Bible we read the following statements :
“Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law ?
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” – Matthew 22 : 35 – 40.
Jesus’ statements above could be more marked simplified on the following chart :
“On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” -- Matthew 22 : 40. That is, on the two great commandments hang the law or the Constitution and their rules of implementation in the writings of the prophets. The first great Commandment consists of four commandments, having the details of how to love God supremely with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind. And the second great Commandment consists of six commandments with all the details to enable us to love our neighbors as ourselves. And the prophets mean the writings of the prophets in the Old Testament.
The servant of the Lord Mrs. EG. White further warned :
“In true science there can be nothing contrary to the teaching of the word of God, for both have the same Author. A correct understanding of both will always prove them to be in harmony. Truth, whether in nature or in revelation, is harmonious with itself in all its manifestations. But the mind not enlightened by God’s Spirit will ever be in darkness in regard to His power. This is why human ideas in regard to science so often contradict the teaching of God’s word.” – 8 Testimonies for the Church, p. 258.
Thus according to the true science, specifically the law science, that is popularly known in the world today, that those mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 22 : 40 would unavoidably mean THE BASIC LAW or THE CONSTITUTION of the KINGDOM OF GOD. And that is the only Basic Law of heaven with Ten Commandments therein.
Due to the fact that the constitution of a country would basically show the image of the character and the will and aspirations of the people, we, therefore, have to fully understand God and His love as those presented us through His Law and the testimony. To this the servant of the Lord further said :
“The Law of God is as sacred as God Himself. It is a revelation of His will, a transcript of His character, the expression of divine love and wisdom.” -- Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 52.
“He that loveth not knoweth not God, for God is love.”
God is love. Since the expression of divine love and wisdom will be found nowhere except in His own law, and then we can truly say that the law of God has its only source with His own love. It is a revelation of His will and a transcript of His character. The love of God could not be identified through any other means. Nor by any sacrifice to love our fellowmen. Nor by abstaining from all appearances of evil. And this is the reason why, we have been advised every one of us to go back to the law of the Decalogue, that we may first prioritize our duty to love God supremely according to His will. The love of God is the only source of law to enable us to know His will as those presented on the law of the Decalogue given to Moses on the Mount Sinai.
Therefore, if ever since Jesus had said through apostle John that “He that loveth not koweth not God, for God is love,” then let us know at this very moment to renew our pledge to the Lord that we will again be committed, to love God supremely with all our heart, and with all our souls, and with all our mind, and to love our fellowmen as ourselves.
This is to mean that we are from now on to return to the Lord by obeying all the Ten Commandments of the Basic Law of His Kingdom, by obeying all the rules of implementation of the Basic Law in the Bible of both Old and the New Testament.
And since the Lord is an everlasting God, and His character is eternally changeless, then we should be sure that His love as well as the Basic Law of His Kingdom is also immutable forever.
But it is not so with His By-laws, which contain all the Rules of Implementation of the Basic Law. If ever during Jesus’ mission in the Palestine the Bible with all the rules of implementation of the Law of that time were still limited to only the Law and the books of the old Testament prophets, whereas, then in this time of the end, the Bible of the Old Testament had been more completed, first by the Bible of the New Testament, provided us by the apostles of Jesus, which ended with the book of Revelation in 96, and then in the time of the end, ever since 1844 by more publications by the prophets of the time of the end in the so-called THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. Mrs. Ellen G. White began her work with her publications sometime in 1845 up to the time she died in 1915. Whereas Bro. Victor T. Houteff began his work of the publication of his message in 1929. He died in 1955.
Thus may it be understood, that for us now living in the time of the end, it is no more enough to love God and to love our fellowmen upon only the Law and the prophets available in the time of Jesus. Nor it is enough to base our faith upon only the Law and its rules of implementation in the Bible of the New Testament. We have to love God and to love our fellowmen according to the Law and the Bible which have been fully interpreted in the time of the end into THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. This is the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY in the golden bowl provided for us through the prophecy of Zechariah chapter 4. To this end the servant of the Lord, Mrs. EG. White said : “Read and study the fourth chapter of Zechariah.” -- Testimonies to Ministers, p. 188. A drawing chart of that prophecy could be seen as here below. Mrs. White then further said :
“The two olive trees empty the golden oil out of themselves through the golden pipes into the golden bowl from which the lamps of the sanctuary are fed. The golden oil represents the Holy Spirit. With this oil God’s ministers are to be constantly supplied, that they, in turn, may impart it to the church. “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” – Testimonies to Ministers, p. 188.
The two olive trees represent the Bible of both Testaments. The two main pipes represent the servants of the Lord, who are the last prophets in the time of the end : Mrs. EG. White and Bro. Victor T. Houteff. Whereas the seven small pipes represent the divinely appointed ministers and teachers in the time of the end. These are those mentioned by the apostle Paul in Ephesus 4 : 11 – 14.
J E S U S :
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
Christians in the whole world fully understand of how the Lord God and His beloved Son Jesus as King and Creator of all the universe have agreed to willingly let Jesus the Son to descend to this earth of sin, to suffer horribly and die, only for the redeem to release the sinners of the earth from their eternal death, for transgressing the Law of the Kingdom. Sin for transgressing the Law has its beginning with Adam and Eve, the first couple of man and woman at the creation of the world. Do you know how did they fall in sin at the beginning ?
Ever since the beginning the Lord God Himself had conducted a regular communication with the couple. The Lord Himself had ever taught them the Law of His commandments, and the rules of its implementation. And one of the rules is to forbid them to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. For in the day they eat of it, they will die an eternal death.
Then after that came Satan to see them. With all his slyness he persuaded them both to reconsider the words of God of the fruits of the tree. He said, if they eat the fruits of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they would become as God themselves to have all the knowledge of good and evil. The influence of Satan and his deception were so strong that at last they both fell into his net. They both were then implicated in the sin for having eaten of the forbidden fruit which was factually very poisonous.
The very first consequence of the sin is very marked that both of them had lost their clothes of holiness. They had now found themselves totally naked before each other, and having been surely convinced that they were to die. Do you know which Commandments of the Law they had ever transgressed ?
Because they had believed more on Satan and his deception than to trust in God their own Maker, they had been found guilty against the first Commandment of the Decalogues : “THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE M E.” – Exodus 20 : 3.
And since they should have died in the same day of the transgression, it is then a fact that they had eaten of the fruits that were actually very poisonous. And they had been implicated in the sin for killing themselves. In this case they had been found guilty for transgressing the fifth Commandment of the Decalogues : “THOU SHAT NOT KILL.” – Exodus 20 : 13.
Actually their transgressions seem only a fatal blunder in the eyes of all of us as a common people. But why is it, that our loving kind Father in Heaven was not immediately in position to forgive them ? The same question could also be raised to the surface : Why is the change of the Sabbath observance of the fourth Commandment of the Decalogues to Sunday observance in nearly the whole Christian Churches in the world for so many centuries up to now, be permitted ? Why did the Lord permit such a blunder to continue up to now ? Is it not better for the sake of salvation of so many Sunday keepers in the world that the loving kind God let His fourth Commandment of the Decalogues be amended ?
The loving kind God of Heaven would never let us be ignorant, that through the knowledge of the law science, and through His own servant the prophet, we have been informed in the following words :
“The Law of God is as sacred as God Himself. It is a revelation of His will, a transcript of His character, the expression of divine love and wisdom.” -- Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 52.
“If the law could be changed, man might have been saved without the sacrifice of Christ; but the fact that it was necessary for Christ to give His life for the fallen race, proves that the law of God will not release the sinner from its claims upon him. It is demonstrated that the wages of sin is death. When Christ died, the destruction of Satan was made certain. But if the law was abolished at the cross, as many claim, then the agony and death of God’s dear Son were endured only to give to Satan just what he asked; then the prince of evil triumphed, his charges against the divine government were sustained. The very fact that Christ bore the penalty of man’s transgression is a mighty argument to all created intelligences, that the law is changeless; that God is righteous, merciful, and self-denying; and that infinite justice and mercy unite in the administration of His government.” – Ibid. p. 70.
The Law of God is as sacred and as everlasting as God Himself, both the Father and the Son. Therefore, if we are truly honest willing to love Jesus, then let us live a true practical religion. And the true practical religion is to obey all the Commandments of the Law. To this end Jesus ever said :
“Jesus said ……… Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” – Matthew 22 : 35 – 40.
It is the same Law that has been more and more developed up to this time of the end as here presented to you.
There is actually only o n e L O V E known in the whole universe of God’s creation. And that is the L O V E of God’s own character. That is the only love which has become the source of the Basic Law or the Constitution of the Kingdom of God.
The Basic Law or the Constitution has been specified into two separate great Commandments. The first great Commandment contains four commandments, obliging people to love God supremely with all their hearts, and with all their souls, and with all their minds. And the second great Commandment contains six commandments obliging people to love their neighbors as to themselves.
In the science, specifically the law science, P u b l i c L a w will include all the Rules of Law that rule the communication between the public and the Government. Thus is the first great Commandment of God with its four commandments to rule the communication between the people and their Creator. And the P r i v a t e L a w will include all the Rules of Law that rule the communication between the people themselves in the society. Thus is the second great Commandment with its six commandments to rule the communication between the people themselves in the society.
Conscious or not conscious we have to admit, that due to the fact ever since the beginning, that God has ever civilized His Law of Love among the inhabitants of this planet, it is no wonder when the second great Commandment, with its six commandments to love their neighbors were more easily understood and popularly appreciated than the first one. Let alone that the teaching of God’s love on earth developed on and on up to the time of the end.
The first great Commandment, with its four commandments to oblige men and women to love God supremely with all our heart, and with all our souls, and with all our minds, seem no more much appreciated in this time of the end. The reason is, that beside so many mysteries of the prophecies and the parables of Jesus in the Bible are still beyond the capacity of the Churches to reveal, the Christian Churches are themselves still divided up to this time of the end. Whereas the main reason behind all these failures up to this very time is, because all the Churches have lost sight of their divinely appointed agencies : the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors, and the teachers, as those mentioned by the apostle Paul in Ephesus 4 : 11 – 14. This condition deteriorated further up to this very time of the end, and then to meet the fulfillment of the prophetic word of Isaiah the prophet as here below :
“And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel : only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.” – Isaiah 4 : 1.
As the prophetic word of Isaiah has just met it fulfillment in this time following the fulfillment of the prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation as those revealed after 1844 by the servants of God : Mrs. EG. White and Bro. Victor T. Houteff in their publications, THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, then let us find the Isaiah 4 : 1 and its explanation here as follows :
“That is, in the last days, the time the daughters of Zion are haughty then seven women (all the churches of that day) shall in heart say to Christ, the one Man, “We shall eat our own bread, we shall wear our own clothes, we shall be entirely independent of Thee. There is but one thing that we want from You : Only let us be called by Thy name, Christian, so as to take away our reproach.” This is the way God sees His church enslaved by the world.” -- Timely Greetings, vol.1, No. 6, p. 33.
In the prophecy of the Bible, “woman” is used to symbolize the church. And the number “7” (seven) signifies the completeness.
Among so many Christian Churches in this time of the end, the Lord God still has His only beloved one, which is identified in the book of Revelation as the Laodicean Church. It was established by the servant of the Lord, Mrs. EG. White in 1844 by the name : The Seventh day Adventist Church. The spiritual identities of this Church could be seen from the statement by John the Revelator in the following words :
“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.
“………… worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.” -- Revelation 19 : 10 (margin).
Note : The woman = the Church ; the Son = Jesus Christ ;
Her seed = the Christians; the remnant of her seed = Christians
now living in this time of the end.
The main identities of the beloved Church of God in this time of the end are the commandments keepers who have the testimony of Jesus Christ, which is THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. However, since the dragon keeps on assailing the leadership of the people on and on, this remnant Church were at last falling too and no more retrievable. Thus it is, that the seven women mentioned in the prophetic words of Isaiah would have implicated this last woman of the remnant Church of Seventh day Adventists too. The Law as the Basic Law of God and the SPIRIT OF PROPHDECY with all the Rules of Implementation of the Basic Law, have been lost sight of in this remnant Church of God. And you will never more hear of any prophecy of the Bible could ever be presented from all her pulpits in the world.
Christian Churches, which had been built one after another by the divinely appointed servants of the Lord ever since the time of DR. Marten Luther with his well-known Protestant Church, one by one had fallen. And the last, the Seventh day Adventist Church as the remnant church of God in the time of the end, she herself could no more stand her fate. Nevertheless, we should never for a moment think that they all have been disappeared from the stage of world history. Certainly not, because they are still standing elevated in glory up to this very moment. Though not more recognized in Heaven and Its people as part of the kingdom here on earth. Thus is fulfilled the word of Jesus in His parable when He said :
“T h e n the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish“ – Matthew 25 : 1, 2.
Seventh day Adventist Church is the only Church of God in this time of the end, that was ever likened by the Lord Jesus to His kingdom of heaven with two classes of virgins in it. The one class with five wise virgins and the other class with five foolish ones therein.
Since now is the time when the prophecy of Isaiah 4 : 1 should have met its fulfillment also in this remnant Church of Seventh day Adventist, then from the fact we could have concluded that this remnant Church of God should have now completely be dominated by the five foolish categorized virgins.
Whereas those wise categorized virgins are yet to fight on, because there are still to be found in their midst the wise virgins who have guile in their mouths. For us, therefore, to identify the wise virgins with guile in their mouths we have to find the answer with John the Revelator. John said :
“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. ………. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are v i r g i n s. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. -- Revelation 14 : 1, 4, 5.
The things prophesied by John in Revelation 14 : 1, 4 are not as yet fulfilled, but they are soon to be fulfilled in the near future. According to the prophecy, Jesus who is still as the Lamb of God or the Redeemer, long before the closing of the time of probation in the heavenly sanctuary, even before His second advent as King of kings and Lord of lords at the end of the world; He would first come to stand with the 144.000 saints of those wise virgins from His remnant Church. But the virgins must be free from sin of defiling with women and in their mouth must not be found any guile. What is meant by the “defiling with women” and “guile in the mouth” ?
These are the women of this time of the end, which symbolize all Church organizations, who have been implicated in the sin of ignoring the love of God as those codified in the Ten Commandments of the Law of God. So sin of defiling with women, is the sin of affiliating with the Churches either through church membership, or by embracing their doctrinal points of view. And specifically for those wise virgins of the Seventh day Adventist Church, who are now affiliated with the so-called General Associations of Davidian SDA in the United States of America. We wish to direct your attention to the Great River of the prophecy of Ezekiel chapter 47. Since we are now living in the typical time of Engedi, whereas during the antitypical time of Englaim in the future, there are sects and denominations that fail to be saved and then turn to salt. The same must unavoidably come to pass in this typical time of Engedi too. That is, the General Associations of Davidian SDA in USA would have to bear the same consequences. You know why ? Because they all will be implicated in the sin as those stipulated in the Revelation 22 : 18, 19. This is the kind of sin of only those who teach the Bible prophecies and the parables of Jesus as those interpreted in the publications of the Spirit of Prophecy by Mrs. White and the Shepherd’s Rod by Bro. Houteff.
Therefore the wise virgins themselves should have been divided. The servant of the Lord Mrs. White said :
“God will arouse His people; if other means fail, heresies will come in among them, which will s i f t them, separating the c h a f f (not tares) from the w h e a t. The Lord calls upon all who believe His word to awake out of sleep. Precious light has come, appropriate for this time. It is Bible truth, showing the perils that are right upon us. This light should lead us to a diligent study of the Scriptures and a most critical examination of the positions which we hold.” – 5 Testimonies for the Church, pp. 707 – 708. (In brackets added)
The new light of the Shepherd’s Rod message ever since the beginning in 1929 has divided Seventh day Adventist Church into two categories of people. The wise virgins on the one side and the foolish virgins on the other side. Or in other word, the wheat categorized ones on the one side, and the tares on the other side.
But as later the wise virgins again to be divided into two categorized ones : the wise virgins without fault before the throne of God on the one side, and the wise virgins with guile in their mouths on the other side. So is the wheat categorized ones again to be sifted to let the chaff categorized ones be separated. “This light should lead us to a diligent study of the Scriptures and a most critical examination of the positions which we hold.” – EG. White.
“Worship God :
for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.”
(Revelation 19 : 10)
Every Truth seeker would have surely understood by himself, that “the testimony of Jesus” is none other than the statement from Jesus Himself. Before Jesus was born in the Palestine, His name was not as yet known in the Old Testament. And that is the reason why all His statements uttered during the Old Testament era is known only by “the testimony.” To this Isaiah the prophet had ever said :
“To the law and to the testimony : if the speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” – Isaiah 8 : 20.
Since the Basic Law and the By-laws could not be separated, for both must go one after the other, then the Law of Ten Commandments must be accompanied by the Testimony containing the rules of implementation of the Basic Law. Only thus could men and their faith be justified, when their obedience to the Law fully accords with all the rules of implementation of the Basic Law.
After Jesus was born and His name was popularly known in Palestine, the apostle John then said :
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him ; and without Him was not anything made that was made.
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” – John 1 : 1, 2, 3, 14.
Since the Word is none other than Jesus Himself, who is always together with God His Father ever since the beginning of creation of the world, it should be understood, that the Bible which is now in our hand must consist of God the Father and God the Son Jesus Christ.
If Jesus is the W o r d of all the Bible with all the Rules of implementation of the Basic Law, then God His Father must be the Basic Law or the Constitution to be found in the same Bible, exclusively in the Book of Moses.
Thus, during the time of the Old Testament prophets, since the name of Jesus was not as yet known, then the Bible of the Old Testament was ever named by Isaiah, “The Law and the Testimony.” Read Isaiah 8 : 20.
But now, just in this time of the end, when all the prophecies and the parables of Jesus in the Bible have been interpreted in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, then the name of Jesus is no more limited to only “the Testimony”, representing The WORD of the Old Testament, nor only limited to “the Testimony of Jesus” representing The WORD of the whole Bible of both Testaments, but now representing all the WORD of the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY as well, which are the Rules of Implementation of the Ten Commandments as the Basic Law.
From the prophecy of Zechariah chapter 4, let it be understood that just in this time of the end all the books of the Bible should have been completely interpreted into the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. Therefore with the coming of Bro. Houteff and his message of the Shepherd’s Rod in 1929 then is fulfilled the statement by Mrs. White when she said:
“Then I saw another mighty angel commissioned to descend to the earth, to unite his voice with the third angel, and give power and force to his message. Great power and glory were imparted to the angel, and as he descended, the earth was lightened with his glory………………… This message seemed to be an addition to the third message, joining it as the midnight cry joined the second angel’s message in 1844.”-- Early Writings, p. 277.
The third angel of Revelation 14 represents the message of the Spirit of Prophecy by Mrs. White. And the other mighty angel is the angel of Revelation 18 : 1, representing Br. Houteff and his message of the Shepherd’s Rod. Combination of those two messages in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY (predicted in Revelation 19 : 10), is now enlightening the earth. And you and me will be more enlightened now than ever before. May God bless you !
C o n c l u s i o n
Due to the fact that the L O V E O F G O D has become the only source of His own L A W in all the universe of His creation, then through His servant Mrs. EG. White the Lord said :
“The law of love being the foundation of the government of God, the happiness of all intelligent beings depends upon their perfect accord with its great principles of righteousness. God desires from all His creatures the service of love – service that springs from an appreciation of His character. He takes no pleasure in a forced obedience; and to all He grants freedom of will, that they may render Him voluntary service.” – Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 34.
“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law : for sin is the transgression of the law.“ — 1 John 3 : 4. That we may sin no more, let us study the l a w to the details, and then repent of all the transgressions. But how could it be for us to repent when the Law that obliges us f i r s t to love God supremely with all our heart, and with all our souls, and with all our minds, as those stipulated in the Bible and the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, have been intentionally left unheeded, and no more appreciated ? Whereas the culture of loving our fellowmen as to care for the needy , to care for the sicks and to care for all the sufferings of the poor everywhere in the world, will be highlighted on and on to the fore as the only love of Jesus and as the base of His true religion in this time of end ? Do you think any good deeds of man could be enough to compensate for his sins ? The servant of the Lord said :
“True religion means living the W O R D in your practical life. Your profession is not of any value without the practical doing of the word.” – Testimonies to Ministers, p. 127.
“The most eloquent sermon that can be preached upon the law of Ten Commandments is to do them. Obedience should be made a personal duty. Negligence of this duty is flagrant sin.” – 4 Testimonies, p. 58.
“I was shown that merely observing the Sabbath and praying morning and evening are not positive evidences that we are Christians. The outward forms may all be strictly observed, and yet true godliness be lacking.” – 1 Testimonies for the Church, p. 305.
“It is not God’s purpose to coerce the will. Man was created a free moral agent. Like the inhabitants of all other worlds, he must be subjected to the test of obedience” – Patriarchs and Prophets, pp. 331, 332.
“He that turneth away his ear from hearing the l a w, even his prayer shall be abomination” -- Proverb 28 : 9.
