The September 2022 issue of “Ministry” magazine published by the Seventh-day Adventist Church has a full page on the back promoting personal notes from the preaching of Billy Graham at the Billy Graham Research Center Library. Ministry is inviting our own ministers to study, research, and train from these notes to enhance our own ministry. It has become clearly evident that the cozying up to apostate Protestantism is rapidly bringing about a rapid declension and apostasy in our beloved church. The result is liberal and doubtful views concerning sound doctrine and standards. As this trend continues, the denomination, which once held to sound Biblical principles, can no longer be a Christian church. Like the Jewish nation of old, they will have left completely the congregation of faithful “Remnant” believers. The faithful who remain recognize that the glory of God’s guidance and direction have departed.
We were told in Selected Messages Vol. 1 pg. 204 that a “… great reformation would take place among Seventh-day Adventists…. And it would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. … Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work …would be counted as error. A new organization would be established. Books of a new order would be written….. Nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the new movement.”
If God were to give visible evidence of His constant protection and abiding presence today as He did with ancient Israel, one could only wonder if the approving cloud by day and fire by night would cover the appointed Seventh-day Adventist organized denomination.
We can only pray and do all within our power, by the Holy Spirit to be faithful and continue to uplift and teach and preach “Present Truth”, for time is of the essence today.
