Women's Ordination

  1. 1. Has God no living church? He has a church, but it is the church militant, not the church triumphant. {TM-45} ...We are sorry that there are defective members, that there are tares amid the wheat. Jesus said: "The kingdom of heaven is lik- ened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. . . . So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn." {TM 45.1} The “church militant” will be meeting in San Antonio, Texas from July 2nd through July 11th for the 60th General Conference session. The church militant consist of both wheat and tares. From the pen of inspiration we read: "He that sowed the good seed is the Son of man. . . . The good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one." The good seed represents those who are born of the word of God, the truth. The tares represent a class who are the fruit or embodiment of error, of false principles. "The enemy that sowed them is the devil." Neither God nor His angels ever sowed a seed that would produce a tare. The tares are always sown by Satan, the enemy of God and man. {COL- 71} “While the Lord brings into the church those who are truly converted, Satan at the same time brings persons who are not converted into its fellowship. While Christ is sowing the good seed, Satan is sowing the tares. There are two opposing influ- ences continually exerted on the members of the church. One influence is working for the purification of the church, and the other for the corrupting of the people of God. {TM 46.1} As it now stands this General Conference Session will rival the GC session of 1888. It appears that we are about to see the fulfill- ment of a major prophetic event in the SDA church that will set in motion the final downward march to perdition. Satan’s agents, the tares, which are the fruit or embodiment of error are about to split this church along the lines of “women ordination,” but don’t be deceived, the issue at hand is far, far deeper than simply women ordination. To justify ordaining women to the priest- hood is a major departure from the “word of God,” and this departure has been predicted, so it had to happen, {more on this later}. As it now stands, it appears that at least 4 or 5 divisions will make this departure based solely on “human reasoning” which without God is worthless. {see 1Sm 204-205} The “North American Division” under it’s president “Dan Jackson” is lead- ing the charge for women ordination. At this time, only direct intervention from God will stop this from happening, but I don’t believe God will intervene, because we are definitely on the banks of the anti-typical “Jordan River” where the “final shaking” must take place.
  2. 2. There will be two opposing influences in San Antonio, Texas. One influence will be working for the corrupting of the people of God, and the other influence will be working for the purification of the church of God . Let us take a look at an example of how deep the division is within the “church militant.” We will do this by taking a brief look at a book written by “Rick Shorter” of Southern California. First we will let Mr. Shorter tell you about the book “This work is a “common sense” approach to the issue of women being ordained as pastors and elders and strongly defends the validity of Godʼs Word, which is now being attacked, with a vengeance. “Nine Months Pregnant” offers an urgent and direct appeal to the leadership of the Seventh-day Adventist church, the delegates to the sixtieth General Conference of SDAs in 2015, in San Antonio, and to all eight- een million, or so, members of Godʼs Remnant SDA Church. The appeal is for Bible - based unity.” In this book Mr. Shorter tells of a guest speaker that came to speak at the church that he attends. The guest speaker was a conference official and had been in the ministry for 40 years. After the service Mr. Shorter had the opportunity to set next to or across the table from the guest speaker at the “pot luck” dinner. During the service some “red flags” had been raised in the mind of Mr. Shorter based on some of the comments the guest speaker had made during his presentation, and so now, Mr. Shorter had the op- portunity to question the guest speaker concerning these comments. After a litany of questions that lasted over two hours, Mr. Shorter asked his final two questions. We have copied and pasted these questions directly from the book below. “My final Question to this Pastor and Conference Official, in this God’s Remnant Church, was, “If in July of 2015 the Delegates from all parts of the world to the General Conference in session in San Antonio, TX, should: 1. Decide to vote against the ordination of women as pastors and elders in the SDA Church (as was voted at the General Conferences of 1990 and 1995); and, 2. Should our present General Conference President, Elder Ted Wilson (who is President at the time of the writing of this book) be voted back into office, how would you relate to this?” This Pastor/Conference Official of forty some years in the SDA Church, without one moment of thought or hesitation replied, “I would leave the denomination.” As I collected my composure, prayer was offered. We shook hands, offering each other blessings as we parted. So much for, “Occurrence at Pot Luck”. In the next chapter, we will be getting closer to the main topic, Seventh-day Adventist Nine Months Pregnant.” Can you believe the answer of this pastor / conference official to Mr. Shorter’s final two questions. This conference official has been in ministry for 40 years, which means he entered the ministry in 1975. Remember that it was in 1980 that Desmond Ford was fired from the ministry by the church, and within the next 10 years another180 SDA pastors and officials left the SDA church because they too believed just as Ford believed, but Ford told the SDA ministry at large to stay in the church and change the church. My question today is how many other ministers and conference officials is of like mind as the guest speaker who has stayed in the church to change the church. The answer is obvious. Today, Satan has a great number of agents {tares} in leader- ship positions that is fighting against the distinctive message that God raised up the remnant church to proclaim. As you will see, the ordaining of women to the priesthood is just a perquisite to the homosexual / lesbian agenda in the church militant.
  3. 3. From the pen of inspiration we read about a chilling prediction that is now in the final stages of fulfillment. The circumstances surrounding this prediction has been building since at least 1931 when we submitted our educational system to worldly accredita- tion. With the compromise on worldly accreditation, Satan now had an avenue to bring many tares into the church, and thus gradually water down the message that we have been ordained of God to give to the world. This message would produce a people that will stand true to God when the “investigative judgment” passes from the dead to the living at the passing of the “National Sunday law.” The prediction is as follows: Vital interests are located at-----, and Satan is opposed to everything that will strengthen the cause of Christ and weaken his own power. He is diligently laying plans to undermine the work of God. He never rests for a moment when he sees that the right is gaining the ascendancy. He has legions of evil angels that he sends to every point where light from heaven is shining upon the people. Here he stations his pickets to seize every unguarded man, woman, or child and press them into his service. The great heart of the work is at-----; and, as the hu- man heart throws its living current of blood into all parts of the body, so does the man- agement at this place, the headquarters of our church, affect the whole body of be- lievers. If the physical heart is healthy, the blood that is sent from it through the sys- tem is also healthy; but if this fountain is impure, the whole organism becomes dis- eased by the poison of the vital fluid. So it is with us. If the heart of the work becomes corrupt, the whole church, in its various branches and interests, scattered abroad over the face of the earth, suffers in conse- quence. Satan's chief work is at the headquar- ters of our faith. He spares no pains to corrupt men in responsible positions and to persuade them to be unfaithful to their sev- eral trusts. He insinuates his suspicions and jealousies into the minds of those whose business it is to do God's work faithfully. While God is testing and proving these helpers, and fitting them for their posts, Satan is doing his utmost to deceive and allure them, that they may not only be destroyed themselves, but may influence others to do wrong and to injure the great work. He seeks by all the means in his power to shake the confidence of God's people in the voice of warning and reproof through which God designs to purify the church and prosper His cause. ... NOTE: Please pay attention to the Step by step process that Satan would use to destroy faith in the word of God and thus lead this church to perdition. … (1) It is Satan's plan to weaken the faith of God's people in the Testimonies. (2) Next follows skepticism in regard to the vital points of our faith, the pillars of our position, (3) then doubt as to the Holy Scriptures, (4) and then the downward march to perdition. When the Testimonies, which were once believed, are doubted and given up, Satan knows the deceived ones will not stop at this; and he redoubles his efforts till he launches them into open rebellion, which becomes incurable and ends in destruction. {4T 210-211} Brothers and sisters right now as we speak we are experiencing a fulfillment of #3 & # 4 of this prophetic prediction. Working through the tares, Satan has already moved the leaders of the church to give up real saving faith in the Testimonies and the pil- lars of our positions as found in the “Three Angels Message.” The central pillar is the sanctuary and the central message of the sanctuary is “victory over all sin” by the power of the indwelling Christ before the “Sunday law test” What’s about to hap- pen at San Antonio, Texas is a satanic delusion. Multitudes of devout men and women will be there, but not a word will be spo- ken from those in authority on this very necessary preparation. from the pen of inspiration we read. “The enemy has made his masterly efforts to unsettle the faith of our own people in the Testimonies, and when these errors come in they claim to prove all the positions by the Bible, but they misinterpret the Scriptures. They make bold assertions, as did Elder Canright, and misapply the prophecies and the Scriptures to prove falsehood. And, after men have done their work
  4. 4. in weakening the confidence of our churches in the Testimonies, they have torn away the barrier, that unbelief in the truth shall become widespread, and there is no voice to be lifted up to stay the force of error. {3SM 83.3} This is just as Satan designed it should be, and those [ TARES- supplied] who have been preparing the way for the people to pay no heed to the warnings and reproofs of the Testimonies of the Spirit of God will see that a tide of errors of all kinds will spring into life. They will claim Scripture as their evidence, and deceptions of Satan in every form will prevail.--Letter 109, 1890. {3SM 83.4} Men may get up scheme after scheme, and the enemy will seek to seduce souls from the truth, but all who believe that the Lord has spoken through Sister White, and has given her a message, will be safe from the many delusions that will come in these last days.-- {3Sm-84} Brothers and sisters we are most definitely in the very end of the last days. Jesus is soon, very soon to come. It has come to my attention that the vote on women ordination has already been scripted out. I was told that for unity sake, it was decided at the Au- tumn Council of 2014 to allow each individual division the autonomy to decide if they wanted to ordain women to the priesthood. This action would keep the church from splitting over the issue and give an appearance of unity, but my KING JAMES BIBLE says the following: Can two walk together, except they be agreed? {Amos 3:3} The answer to the above question from the book of Amos is a resounding NO!!!! Two cannot walk together unless they agree, and therefore this satanic pseudo unity will not work, but God will have a church triumphant that is unified. Read on. On the day of Pentecost the disciples were on one accord with the “word of God.” and as a result they received the “early rain,” and with this power they preached and presented the gospel to the then known world. The Bible goes on to say that they turned the world upside down with the gospel. {see COL. 1:23 and Acts 17:6} The SDA church has been commission by God to preach the gospel, the real gospel to every nation, kindred, tongue and people. The “LOUD CRY’ message of Revelation 18:1-5 will be a unified message, not one teaching this and another teaching some- thing else. The team that God uses to give the final all important message contained in the “Loud Cry of the third angel” will have gained victory over all sin, they will move like a company of solders under the directions of the “Holy Spirit” {please read EW -269- 272} DO YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF THAT UNIFIED TEAM ??? To be a part of this team, we must all pass the test. What is this test? read on from the pen of inspiration. “We are to be ready and waiting for the orders of God. Nations will be stirred to their very center. Support will be withdrawn from those who proclaim God's only standard of righteousness, the only sure test of character. And all who will not bow to the decree of the national councils, and obey the national laws to exalt the Sabbath instituted by the man of sin to the disre- gard of God's holy day, will feel, not the oppressive power of popery alone, but of the Protestant world, the image of the beast. . . . The great issue so near at hand will weed out those whom God has not appointed and He will have a pure, true, sanctified ministry prepared for the latter rain.” . . . {3SM 385.3} QUESTION: WHAT IS THE ISSUE AT HAND THAT WILL WEED OUT THE TARES??? ANSWER: THE NATIONAL SUNDAY LAW “The Lord has shown me clearly that the image of the beast will be formed before probation closes; for it is to be the great test for the people of God, by which their eternal destiny will be decided. . . . [Revelation 13:11-17 quoted.] . . . {7BC 976.2} This is the test that the people of God must have before they are sealed. All who proved their loyalty to God by observing His law, and refusing to accept a spurious Sabbath, will rank under the banner of the Lord God Jehovah, and will receive the seal of the living God. Those who yield the truth of heavenly origin and accept the Sunday Sabbath, will receive the mark of the beast (7 BC-976) WE WILL CONTINUE THIS STUDY NEXT MAILING. DISC 3 ENCLOSED
