And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. </li></ul>
  3. 4. REVELATION 22:9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
  4. 5. FELLOWSERVANT, BRETHREN, AND PROPHETS, ARE ONE… <ul><li>1 CORINTHIANS 12:14, 18 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For the body is not one member, but many. But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 6. A PROPHET: A SEER <ul><li>1 SAMUEL 9:9 </li></ul><ul><li>(Beforetime in Israel, when a man went to enquire of God, thus spake, Come, and let us go to the seer: for he that is now called a Prophet was beforetime called a Seer.) </li></ul><ul><li>A SEER HAD/HAS SPIRITUAL EYES </li></ul><ul><li>PROVERBS 29:18 </li></ul><ul><li>Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. </li></ul>
  6. 7. A PROPHET/SEER: COUNTERFEITS <ul><li>REVELATION 3:18 [MESSAGE TO LAODICEA] </li></ul><ul><li>I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, hat thou mayest be rich; and raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. </li></ul><ul><li>WHAT QUARREL DOES CHRIST HAVE WITH THE CHURCH OF LAODICEA? </li></ul><ul><li>Righteous and Blessed </li></ul><ul><li>Poor/miserable/naked/blind </li></ul><ul><li>Lukewarm </li></ul>
  7. 8. LAODECIA LOOSES INTEREST IN HEAVENLY THINGS, BUT FINDS PLEASURE IN WORLDY THINGS. <ul><li>JOHN 5:39 </li></ul><ul><li>Search the scriptures; for in them ye think that ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. </li></ul><ul><li>REVELATION 1:2, 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Who bare record of the word of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. </li></ul>
  8. 9. PROPHETS: BIBLE STUDENTS? <ul><li>1 PETER 1:10, 11 </li></ul><ul><li>Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. </li></ul>
  9. 10. A PROPHET: BEARS WITNESS [TESTIMONY ] <ul><li>JOHN 1:6-8 </li></ul><ul><li>There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. </li></ul><ul><li>2 PETER 1:20, 21 </li></ul><ul><li>Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

  10. 11. PROPHET(S): PRIESTS AND PEOPLE REJECTED HIS WORDS <ul><li>ZECHARIAH 7:11, 12 </li></ul><ul><li>But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the Lord of hosts. </li></ul><ul><li>REVELATION 22:16 </li></ul><ul><li>I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. </li></ul>
  11. 12. REMNANT CHURCH OF REVELATION 12:17: TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST? <ul><li>1 CORINTHIANS 14:22 </li></ul><ul><li>Wherefore tongues are for a sign , not to them that believe , but to them that that believe not : but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not , but for them which believe . </li></ul><ul><li>2 CHRONICLES 36:15, 16 [JERUSALEM’S FALL] </li></ul><ul><li>And the LORD God of their fathers sent them by his messengers , rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: But they mocked the messengers of God , and despised his words, and misused his prophets , until the wrath of the Lord arose against his people, till there was no remedy. </li></ul>
  12. 13. PHARI SEE : OXYMORON <ul><li>OXFORD DICTIONARY </li></ul><ul><li>A figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction. </li></ul><ul><li>Oxford example: (Faith unfaithful kept him falsely true). </li></ul><ul><li>MATTHEW 23:29, 30 </li></ul><ul><li>Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, And say, If we would have been in the days of our fathers, we would not have partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. </li></ul>
  13. 14. GOD’S PROFESSED PEOPLE REJECTS THE PROPHET’S TESTIMONY <ul><li>ISAIAH 30:8-11 </li></ul><ul><li>Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: That this s a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: </li></ul><ul><li>LUKE 6:26 </li></ul><ul><li>Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you!

  16. 17. ELLEN G. WHITE, SELECTED MESSAGES, VOL. 1, pp.40, 48 <ul><li>Chapter 3 - Attitudes Toward the Testimonies </li></ul><ul><li>I saw the state of some who stood on present truth, but disregarded the visions--the way God had chosen to teach in some cases, those who erred from Bible truth. I saw that in striking against the visions they did not strike against the worm--the feeble instrument that God spake through--but against the Holy Ghost. I saw it was a small thing to speak against the instrument, but it was dangerous to slight the words of God…. </li></ul>
  17. 18. <ul><li>… .I saw if they were in error and God chose to show them their errors through visions, and they disregarded the teachings of God through visions, they would be left to take their own way, and run in the way of error, and think they were right, until they would find it out too late. Then in the time of trouble I heard them cry to God in agony, &quot;Why didst Thou not show us our wrong, that we might have got right and been ready for this time?&quot; Then an angel pointed to them and said, &quot;My Father taught, but you would not be taught. He spoke through visions, but you disregarded His voice, and He gave you up to your own ways, to be filled with your own doings…. </li></ul>
  18. 19. SEARCHING THE TESTIMONIES FOR AN EXCUSE <ul><li>Some who are not willing to receive the light, but who prefer to walk in ways of their own choosing, will search the testimonies to find something in them to encourage the spirit of unbelief and disobedience. Thus a spirit of disunion will be brought in; for the spirit which leads them to criticize the testimonies will also lead them to watch their brethren to find in them something to condemn. </li></ul>
  19. 20. THE LAST DECEPTION OF SATAN <ul><li>Satan is . . . constantly pressing in the spurious--to lead away from the truth. The very last deception of Satan will be to make of none effect the testimony of the Spirit of God. &quot;Where there is no vision, the people perish&quot; (Proverbs 29:18). Satan will work ingeniously, in different ways and through different agencies, to unsettle the confidence of God's remnant people in the true testimony.-- Letter 12, 1890. </li></ul><ul><li>There will be a hatred kindled against the testimonies which is satanic. The workings of Satan will be to unsettle the faith of the churches in them, for this reason: Satan cannot have so clear a track to bring in his deceptions and bind up souls in his delusions if the warnings and reproofs and counsels of the Spirit of God are heeded. </li></ul>
