The Apis Bull – From Relfe to Veith

IIn part one of this series we saw how the literal form of the Apis bull was worshipped at Sinai during the alpha of ancient Israel. Even though the literal form (or idol) was not physically worshipped, the spirit (or character) of Apis continued to be revered, exemplified in the selection of Israel’s first king, Saul. Then we saw how the rejection of the Messiah during the omega of ancient Israel was also because of the Jews’ continued infatuation with the spirit of Apis.

The Apis Bull – The Idolatry of Conservative Adventism

In the last article we reviewed Elder Tess’ first presentation on the Apis Bull. We saw how the spirit of the Apis Bull pervaded ancient Israel’s mindset to the point that their desire for a courageous, battle-hardened, and strong, male leader eventually caused them to reject their Messiah.

The Apis Bull

In May of 2020 God began to reveal the increase of knowledge to this church. The studies opened with the subject of the Apis Bull. Elder Tess has suggested that we will never be able to appreciate the formalisation of the message which arrived in August 2021, unless we fully understand the increase of knowledge. In fact, if you think about it, each increase of knowledge has been essential to its own formalisation and test, as well as essential to our entire message.

9/11: The Harbinger

In this fourth and final article on the prophetic characteristics of 9/11 we will attempt to place the events in New York in their proper prophetic context, try to understand how and why the third angel’s message arrived, and trace the laying of the foundations of the temple and the tarrying time from 9/11.

9/11 and the Early and Latter Rain

We have seen how every reform line has five major waymarks. The first three are the first, second and third angel’s messages respectively, followed by the shut door and the second advent. In the line of the 144,000, Sister White already gives you the last three, those being the Sunday Law, Close of Probation (Daniel 12:1) and the Second Advent. So we are left to fabricate the first two waymarks for ourselves, and the purpose of this series is to identify the second waymark.

9/11 and The First and Second Angel’s Messages

In our last article we saw how one could parallel the events of September 11, 2001 with the events of August 11, 1840 and thereby place the commencement of the third woe at 9/11. Therefore if you were to construct the line of the 144,000 by comparing it to the Millerite line, you now have one witness that 9/11 can be placed as the second aymark. By relooking at August 11, 1840 we will try to show how the first angel’s message was empowered and how that also finds it’s parallel at 9/11.

9/11 and the 3rd Woe

I would like to present a series of four articles documenting the haracteristics of the second waymark on the line of the 144,000, namely 9/11. While most of the priests in our movement already know and understand this doctrine, very soon we will have to teach it to the Levites (Seventh-day-Adventists outside of this movement) so I wanted to compile a study that might be a resource for that purpose. Therefore this study will be more like a checklist of characteristics rather than an in-depth explanation of each one.

Rules of Parable Methodology

The student of prophecy still requires a distinct set of rules or principles in order to dig for their hidden treasure. Parables are crafted with specific rules embedded within them and if we break these rules we can make mistakes or fail to find the hidden information. The following chapter will briefly introduce some of the rules in the hope it will encourage the reader to study further for themselves.

Three Steps of Restoration

The world is now full of misery and suffering, but in the beginning it was not so. Life in Eden was good and beautiful without any of the bad things that we see and experience today. Since the entering in of sin, things have changed and humanity has kept on moving away from the Edenic experience. There were three major steps which took us away from Eden. In order for God to take us back to Eden, He needs to take us through the same three steps through the work of restoration. It is the purpose of this article to study these three steps of restoration in detail.

Why Do We Have to be Rebaptised

As Adventists we have become used to the understanding that the mark of the beast is a Sunday Law, to the point where we probably think of the mark of the beast as synonymous with the Sunday Law, and that those verses in Revelation 13 and 14 are referring solely and exclusively to a Sunday Law. This article will examine the identity of the mark of the beast in the book Spiritual Gifts, and investigate what the implications might have for us today.

Why Do We Have to be Rebaptised

If someone is already baptised why are we now asserting that they need to be rebaptised? It will assume the reader already understands the reasons for baptism as this article will not cover all the different reasons and purposes for baptism. Soon we will be addressing the Levites with this issue, many of whom will no doubt be baptised Seventh-day Adventists, and it is important that we are able to answer them correctly.

Identifying the Glorious Land

This movement has made the strong and continued assertion that the only way to understand Inspiration in our time is through parable methodology. All surface treasure has already been discovered and presented over the centuries, so for the last generation God is revealing the only remaining gems, or hidden treasure if you will, through parable methodology.

Where Are My Messengers?

In December 2016 a message that Daniel 11 would repeat at the end of the world was unfolded. The principle guiding this study is that history repeats Ecclesiates 1:9, 3:15 and Isaiah 46:10) in a very specific fashion, which we call line upon line, parable methodology. The diagram below illustrates how Daniel 11:5-20 repeats from 538 A.D. to the second advent.

False Freedom

The movement is now in a history typified by the time of trouble and there is a pandemic which is killing a lot of people each day. The world economy is rumbling down, movements are restricted and it seems the world was not prepared for such a deadly pandemic. The world has reached a point where their only hope is in a new developed vaccine and it is also met with conspiracy theories.

The Nature of Man

By comparing and contrasting the following three passages from the Spirit of Prophecy we can see the nature of man is a fundamental theme of the third angel’s message and therefore essential for all of us to understand. This article will attempt to investigate how Inspiration describes the nature of man. The first quote was written in 1862 during the Civil War which we now understand to have represented the time of Jacob’s trouble and a time when the Millerites had already entered into the Laodicean condition. Please notice the three messages Sister White emphasises during that time.

Communication Technology and the Gospel

There has been an increase of knowledge in the world in many things: people are no longer using horses to travel, they are using planes so they can move long distances in a short period of time; people far from each other are able to communicate with each other in a second without travelling, by just using a phone, which was impossible in the past.

Mission Updates

Since 2018 the midnight cry message has sounded throughout the movement. It traveled all over the globe. The midnight cry message challenged the movement to take the next step in following Christ wherever He goes. It is a message that challenged our old belief system as never before. As the message of true freedom from our Laodicean mindset was presented, we saw how this message divides. We saw sisters and brothers, whom we dearly love, refuse to trust in God’s methodology. Many still clinging to their conspiracy theories, nationalism, racism, sexism and homophobia were, and still are, being shaken out. In contrast to the message of true freedom, we saw a message of false freedom entering into the movement, to steal away many from the flock. There is danger on each side of the path as we seek higher ground.

The Bible - A Parable

In our institutions, where many are laboring together, the influence of association is very great. It is natural to seek companionship. Everyone will find companions or make them. And just in proportion to the strength of the friendship, will be the amount of influence which friends will exert over one another for good or for evil. All will have associates, and will influence and be influenced in their turn.

The Narrow Way

The bible uses different models or parables to help God’s children understand their spiritual journey from Earth to Heaven. Paul admonishes the people at Corinth in 1 Corinthians 9:24, that there are many who run in the race but only one receive the prize, therefore run so that you may obtain; the model here used is that of racing. In 2 Timothy 4:7, Paul tells Timothy that he has fought a good fight and he has won; here the spiritual journey to heaven is pictured as a fight between forces.

A Thus Saith the Lord

The phrase “thus saith the LORD” is found just over four hundred times in the Bible and is generally used by the author to emphasize that the succeeding text is a direct thought from God Himself with little to no input from the human author. Subsequent students of the Bible have used this term to explain that a thought or doctrine is derived directly from a surface reading of the Bible, therefore usually without extrapolation.

We Do not Understand Equality

The subjects of race and gender equality are present truth. This light was at the centre of the most severe shaking the movement has suffered to date. A shaking which saw the departure of the founding ministry and the messenger of the first angel. All can be grateful for having made it this far in the process of shakings and siftings through which God is establishing His church.

The Two Ships

“It was on the fourteenth night of tossing on the black, heaving billows, that ‘about midnight’ the sailors, hearing the sound of breakers, ‘deemed that they drew near to some country; and sounded, and found it twenty fathoms: and when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, and found it fifteen fathoms. Then fearing’, Luke writes, ‘lest we should have fallen upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day’.” AA, 443.3

The 2520 in It's Proper Light

“There are those now living who in studying the prophecies of Daniel and John, received great light from God as they passed over the ground where special prophecies were in process of fulfillment in their order. They bore the message of time to the people. The truth shone out clearly as the sun at noonday. Historical events, showing the direct fulfillment of prophecy, were set before the people, and the prophecy was seen to be a figurative delineation of events leading down to the close of this earth’s history. The scenes connected with the working of the man of sin are the last features revealed in this earth’s history.

True Freedom Under Attack

“Investigation of Doctrine – There is no excuse for anyone in taking the position that there is no more truth to be revealed, and that all our expositions of Scripture are without an error. The fact that certain doctrines have been held as truth for many years by our people, is not a proof that our ideas are infallible. Age will not make error into truth, and truth can afford to be fair. No true doctrine will lose anything by close investigation. We are living in perilous times, and it does not become us to accept everything claimed to be truth without examining it thoroughly; neither can we afford to reject anything that bears the fruits of the Spirit of God; but we should be teachable, meek and lowly of heart."

God’s Technique and our Dispensation

“Different periods in the history of the church have each been marked by the development of some special truth, adapted to the necessities of God’s people at that time. Every new truth has made its way against hatred and opposition; those who were blessed with its light were tempted and tried. The Lord gives a special truth for the people in an emergency. Who dare refuse to publish it? He commands His servants to present the last invitation of mercy to the world. They cannot remain silent, except at the peril of their souls. Christ’s ambassadors have nothing to do with consequences. They must perform their duty and leave results with God."

Eden to Be Restored

“The Garden of Eden remained upon the earth long after man had become an outcast from its pleasant paths. The fallen race were long permitted to gaze upon the home of innocence, their entrance barred only by the watching angels. At the cherubim-guarded gate of Paradise the divine glory was revealed. Hither came Adam and his sons to worship God. Here they renewed their vows of obedience to that law the transgression of which had banished them from Eden. When the tide of iniquity overspread the world, and the wickedness of men determined their destruction by a flood of waters, the hand that had planted Eden withdrew it from the earth. But in the final restitution, when there shall be “a new heaven and a new earth,” it is to be restored more gloriously adorned than at the beginning."

The Last Rebellion

“As the storm approaches, a large class who have professed faith in the third angel’s message, but havenot been sanctified through obedience to the truth, abandon their position, and join the ranks of the opposition. By uniting with the world and partaking of its spirit, they have come to view matters in nearly the same light; and when the test is brought, they are prepared to choose the easy, popular side. Men of talent and pleasing address, who once rejoiced in the truth, employ their powers to deceive and mislead souls. They become the most bitter enemies of their former brethren. When Sabbath-keepers are brought before the courts to answer for their faith, these apostates are the most efficient agents of Satan to misrepresent and accuse them, and by false reports and insinuations to stir up the rulers against them."

Trials the Greates Blessings

“The Lord has often given me a view of the situation and wants of the scattered jewels who have not yet come to the light of the present truth, and has shown that the messengers  hould speed their way to them as fast as possible, to give them the light. Many all around us only need to have their prejudices removed and the evidences of our present position spread out before them from the Word, and they will joyfully receive the present truth. The messengers should watch for souls as they that must give account. Theirs must be a life of toil and anguish of spirit, while the weight of the precious but often-wounded cause of Christ rests upon them. They will have to lay aside worldly interests and comforts and make it their first object to do all in their power to advance the cause of present truth and save perishing souls. “They will also have a rich reward. In their crowns of rejoicing those who are rescued by them and finally saved will shine as stars forever and ever. And to all eternity they will enjoy the satisfaction of having done what they could in presenting the truth in its purity and beauty, so that souls fell in love with it, were sanctified through it, and availed themselves of the inestimable privilege of being made rich, and being washed in the blood of the Lamb and redeemed unto God."
