INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT SCENE 4

Daniel 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were


cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit,
whose garment [was] white as snow, and
the hair of his head like the pure wool: his
throne [was like] the fiery flame, [and] his
wheels [as] burning fire.
7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth
from before him: thousand thousands
ministered unto him, and ten thousand
times ten thousand stood before him: the
judgment was set, and the books were
opened.

SidebarWhen Jesus comes, HE will place the


un-confessed sins on the head of Satan, then
he will burn for his sins and all the sins he
influenced others to commit! THIS IS THE
REALITY! This is the same thing that the
Earthly Priest did on the Day of At-one-ment!

Jeremiah 4:23
I beheld the earth, and, lo, [it was] without form, and void; and the
heavens, and they [had] no light.
4:24
I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
4:25
I beheld, and, lo, [there was] no man, and all the birds of the heavens were
fled.
4:26
I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place [was] a wilderness, and all the cities thereof
were broken down at the presence of the LORD, [and] by his fierce anger.
4:27
For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not
make a full end.
25:33
And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from [one] end of the earth even
unto the [other] end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor
buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.

THAT CHAIN IS SATAN WILL HAVE NOBODY TO TEMPT; WHILE THE REDEEMED WILL BE IN HEAVEN FOR 1000 YEARS!

SATAN BOUND BY A CHAIN OF CIRCUMSTANCES WITH NO ONE TO


TEMPT

SidebarSatan understands the plan of redemption as well as what his end is


going to be; and he knows the only way to prevent this is to shut-down the
Seventh-day Adventist church. He knows that God has to produce a people,
the Seventh-day Adventist church, who will vindicate His Character before
the Universe, who will stand true to God when the judgment passes from the
dead to the living at the National Sunday Law.
The Prophet SpeaksAs the people of God approach the perils of the last
days, Satan holds earnest consultation with his angels as to the most
successful plan of overthrowing their faith. Says the great deceiver: "We must
watch those who are calling the attention of the people to the Sabbath of
Jehovah; they will lead many to see the claims of the law of God; and the
same light which reveals the true Sabbath reveals also the ministration of
Christ in the heavenly sanctuary, and shows that the last work for man's
salvation is now going forward. Hold the minds of the people in darkness till
that work is ended, and we shall secure the world and the church also. {TM
472.2}
"The Sabbath is the great question which is to decide the destiny of souls.
We must exalt the sabbath of our creating. We have caused it to be accepted
by both worldlings and church members; now the church must be led to unite
with the world in its support. We must work by signs and wonders to blind
their eyes to the truth, and lead them to lay aside reason and the fear of God
and follow custom and tradition. {TM 472.3}

The passing
of the time in 1844 was a
period of great events, opening to our astonished eyes the cleansing
of the sanctuary transpiring in heaven, and having decided relation to
God's people upon the earth, [also] the first and second angels'
messages and the third, unfurling the banner on which was inscribed,
"The commandments of God and the faith of Jesus." One of the
landmarks under this message was the temple of God, seen by His
truth-loving people in heaven, and the ark containing the law of God.
The light of the Sabbath of the fourth commandment flashed its
strong rays in the pathway of the transgressors of God's law. The nonimmortality of the wicked is an OLD LANDMARK. I can call to mind
31
nothing more that can come under the HEAD OF THE OLD
LANDMARKS. All this cry about changing the old landmarks is all
imaginary. {CW 30.2}

and central pillar of the Advent faith was the declaration, Unto two

But Satan has been seeking gradually to rob this message of its power, that

LATER TESTIMONY OF SDA LEADERS
Elder W. H. Branson, Chairman of the Survey Commission on Education
summarized in 1935:
We believeAs a result of our study of this situation that the safeguards
that we tried to throw around the policy of accrediting when we entered
upon this course have largely broken down. He further states, It has gone
way beyond anything the denomination planned, and the by-products of this
are found in the schools where boards are pressed by the ACCREDITATION
BODIES to put men on their faculties who have ADVANCED DEGREES, and
did not know where to turn for men of experience and outstanding integrity
to fill the position.

Side BarRemember now, in 1931, we


accredited three of our institutions and
by the1940s, ALL of OUR SCHOOLS were
ACCREDITED and this is the subject to
which Elder Branson is making reference
in 1935.

NATURE; it is designed to depend on human reasoning in opposition to


dependence on GOD. All of which was brought into the entire educational
system by a man named John Dewey. And so, in 1931, Satan deceived the
Seventh-day Adventist Church into buying into this educational system via
ACCREDITATION. And then, in 1935, Elder Branson commented on the
gigantic error we had made in so doing.
In 1844, our eyes were opened to the Sanctuary in Heaven and this opened
up a new system of worship through the Pillars of our Faith. We learned that
the Cleansing of the Sanctuary was associated with VICTORY OVER SIN. We
didnt understand how to gain Victory over Sin; however, in 1888, God sent
the Righteousness by Faith Message to us to show us how we could have
Victory over Sin. Then in 1901-1908, the devil brought in the Alpha of
Apostasy, through Kellogg, to counteract/nullify Victory over Sin. Then in
1952, Heppenstall initiated the LIE that we CANNOT OVERCOME SIN EVEN BY
THE POWER OF THE INDWELLING CHRIST. As a result of this, we began to
abandon our PILLARSbeginning with our Sanitariums/Health Work. And by
1911, we accredited Loma Linda due to the AMA Board stating that we could
no longer send our students from an unaccredited school to their accredited
schools to obtain a degree. This forced us to accredit three more of our
institutions. This opened up the flood gates for Satan to then access Gods
schools. Satan had to gain access to our schools in order to corrupt/prevent
us from carrying out the plan that God designed His schools to accomplish.
Kellogg allowed Satan to influence him to separate the Medical Ministry Work
from the 3 Angels Message/Gospel which we were admonished by God to

THIS IS WHY SATAN CORRUPTED


GODS INSTITUTIONS:
"The Holy Scriptures were the essential study in the
schools of the prophets, and they should hold the first
place in every EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. . . . Used as a
textbook in our schools, the BIBLE WILL DO FOR MIND
AND MORALS WHAT CANNOT BE DONE BY BOOKS OF
SCIENCE OR PHILOSOPHY." "While the Bible should hold
the first place in the education of children and youth, the
book of nature is next in importance." "It is well that
physiology is introduced into the common schools as a
branch of education. All children should study it. It should
be regarded as the basis of all educational effort."

PRETERISM is a Christian eschatological view that


interprets prophecies of the Bible as events which
have already happened. Daniel is interpreted as
events that happened in the second century BC
while Revelation is interpreted as events that
happened in the first century A.D. Preterism holds
that Ancient Israel finds its continuation or
fulfillment in the Christian church at the
destruction of Jerusalem A.D. 70. The term
preterism comes from the Latin proeter which is
listed in Websters 1913 dictionary as a prefix
denoting that something is past or beyond,
signifying that either all or a majority of Bible
prophecy was fulfilled by A.D.70. Adherents of
preterism are commonly known as preterists.
(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Preterism)

FUTURISM is Christian eschatological viewthat interprets portions of the


Book of Revelation, theBook of Daniel, and other prophecies, as future
events in a literal, physical,apocalyptic, and global context.[1]
The futurist view assigns all or most of the prophecy to the future, shortly
before theSecond Coming; especially when interpreted in conjunction with
Daniel,Isaiah2:11-22,1 Thessalonians4:155:11, and othereschatological
sections of the Bible.[citation needed]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futurism_(Christianity )

Side BarRemember now, we are looking at what Satan is doing in phase 3 of the plan
of redemption to Gods people to prevent us from cooperating with Jesus in the Most
Holy Place; JESUS is blotting out or sins. I want my sins blotted out, how about you?
Satan

is working hard to prevent Jesus from reproducing a people to reflect His


Image Fully and vindicate His Character before the Universe at which time, it
will be all over for Satan.
Why did Desmond Ford, a PHD begin to think as he did in reference to the
Sanctuary, the 2300 day Prophecy, the first 5 Chapters of the Bible, the Spirit
of Prophecy etc? Why did 180 ministers of the SDA church leave the ministry
believing as Desmond Ford did? Q. WHAT HAPPENED TO THESE MINISTERS
THOUGHT PROCESSES; A. THEY ATTENDED THESE CORRUPTED SCHOOLS THAT
SATAN ESTABLISED AND THEREBY, THEY BECAME CORRUPT. THEY HAD TO GO
TO SCHOOL AND THEY HAD TO GET ADVANCED DEGREES.

Another counterinterpretation to the

proposed by the
Spanish JesuitLuis De

who also wrote a
commentary called
Investigation of the
Hidden Sense of the
Apocalypse,which ran
to some 900 pages. In
it he proposed thatall
of Revelation applied
to the era of pagan
Rome and the first six
centuries of
Christianity. According
to Alcazar (or Alcasar):

the preterist view was

Among Protestants, it

exposition of prophecy during the COUNTER REFORMATION which
was after Martin Luther had protested against the Roman Catholic
Church; Luther and other Protestants had learned that the Man Of
Sin/Anti-Christ in the Bible was/is the Pope/Papacy/Roman Catholic
Church/Satans Church. So the Roman Catholic Church was
counter-protesting in order to refute Luthers and other
protestants claims and thereby the light would be thrown off of

Historicism was the belief held by the majority of the


Protestant Reformers includingMartin Luther,John Calvin,
Thomas Cranmer, and others includingJohn Thomas,John
Knox, andCotton Matherwhile the Catholic church tried
to counter it with alternative views such as those put
forward by the JesuitLuis de Alcasarduring theCounter
Reformation.[2][pageneeded].[3]This alternate view served to
bolster the Catholic Church's position against attacks by
Protestants,[4][5]and is viewed as a Catholic defense
against the Protestant Historicist view which identified the
Roman Catholic Church as apersecuting apostasyand the
Pope with the Anti-Christ.[5]

Alternative Approaches: 1.
Preterism. A number of SDA
thinkers, particularly those
educated in religion and history,
have seen increasing light in the
preterist approach to biblical
apocalyptic. This approach, the
primary ones among
PROFESSIONAL BIBLICAL
SCHOLARS, treats books like Daniel
and Revelation as messages to
their original time and place, not
as divinely-ordained chains of
future historical events. According
to this approach, believers benefit
from these books not by seeing
where they stand in the course of
history, but by applying spiritual
principles drawn from the text to
later situations.

SidebarNotice the language: The Primary Ones Among Professional Biblical Scholars.
The primary ones in Christs day were the Pharisees/ scribes; however, they didnt understand the
Sanctuary and thats why they crucified Christ. They had gone down to Alexandria in Greece to become
educated but they didnt know that Jesus was the MESSIAH nor did they know when and where HE was
to be born. Their education obtained from the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil is the WRONG
SOURCE OF EDUCATION! That is Worldly Wisdom not Godly Wisdom.

Now you can understand why our preachers are coming out of our colleges all messed up spiritually;
they have had this preterism theology put in their heads and theyre coming out of these schools
pastoring churches CRIPPLED, then they cripplle the members. And people are sitting back in carnal
security, on the pews of these churches, being fed garbage. THIS IS SERIOUS!!
Additionally, regarding preterism, if you look at the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation from a
preterist view, you will NOT see the Man of Sin as the Catholic Church; you can understand those
prophecies from a historicist point of view and thats as God intended.
Remember Eph. 6: 12 so we can only be angry at the devil, not man.

SidebarThis is the Gate where the Jews expect the Messiah to


come through for the first time, as well as the Gate where Satan will
come through pretending to be Jesus when the NSL is legislated.
That legislation will put the SQUEEZE upon SDAs and well decide for
Jesus and receive the Seal of God or well cave-in and receive the
Mark of the Beast!

discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last
fifty years would be accounted as error. A new organization would be established. Books of a new order would
be written. A system of intellectual philosophy would be introduced. The founders of this system would go into
the cities, and do a

would be allowed to stand in the way of the new movement. The leaders would teach that virtue is better than
vice, but God being removed, they would place their dependence on human power, which, without God, is
worthless. Their foundation would be built on the sand, and storm and tempest would sweep away the

DESMOND FORD

10. WHAT DO ADVENTIST SCHOLARS SAY ABOUT THE BIBLE AND THE
ADVENTIST UNDERSTANDING OF DANIEL 8:14
10a. FORD SUMMARY STATEMENT:
Desmond Ford was a college teacher for many years within the Adventist
church. Here is a general statement by him about Adventist scholarship and
the supposed INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT of DANIEL 8:14: Many adventist
scholars have long held that Daniel 8:14 does not teach an Investigative
Judgment. Their view was rejected because it seems to contradict Ellen White.
It is well nigh certain that had Ellen White not endorsed the doctrine, it would
have been surrendered long ago. In practical terms, it has been surrendered.
Surrendered, not only by Adventist scholars in this country, but also around the
world, and by much of European Adventism. As a local example, belief in 1844
and the Investigative Judgment is not considered mandatory for baptism in
Germany.
www.investigativejudgment.info/ij/part7.htm
The investigative judgment teaching was the focus ofcontroversywithin the
denomination in 1980, when Adventist theologianDesmond Fordhad his
ministerial credentials withdrawn by the Church after openly criticizing the
doctrine. While the Adventist mainstream believe in the doctrine and the
church has reaffirmed its basic position on the doctrine since 1980, some of
those within the church's more liberalprogressive wingcontinue to be critical
of the teaching. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Investigative_judgment
