The Path Home

THE PATH HOME


The prophecy found in Amos 8:11 states, “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD.” The world has no clue as to what is going on because they fail to read the letter God gave to us through His servants. This God-sent letter is found in your King James Bible and the writings of Sister White. Majority of the world would rather follow after the teachings and doctrines of men. God has given you His Word and you should read it. You will be without excuse “IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT.”

In the book of Revelation chapters 2 & 3 we can find the seven Churches. These seven Churches are the conditions of Gods people that they are in throughout the history of the world. As we study the book of Revelation on the seven Churches, you will begin to see a path that will help you know where one needs to be today before the coming of Jesus. We must not be found in any other condition other than the one our Lord approves of.  This condition that God approves of is simple, we are to keep the commandments of God, the faith of Jesus, and by doing this you will bear His testimony, Revelation 14:12 & 19:10.

COMMANDMENTS

Keep the law of God if you love HIM. For it is written in the book of John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments and if you will enter into life keep my commandments for this is the whole duty of man and then you may have right to the tree of life and receive your crown, Matthew 19:17, Ecclesiastes 12:13, Revelation 22:14, James 1:12. By bearing the testimony of Jesus you will suffer persecution. As we will see in this study on the seven churches. Our brethren before us had to endure many persecution even from the start of the first church Ephesus. When our beloved Lord Jesus Christ defeated Satan and ascended to heaven to commence the work in the heavenly sanctuary, where He is at the right hand of the Father, the church of Ephesus was already being tried, tortured, persecuted, ridiculed, mocked, exiled, beaten, and killed. These are the types of punishments and trials that God’s people had to endure to receive their crown of victory.

sevenchurches

We can see in the seven churches that they start out keeping the commandments and the faith of Jesus but through the efforts of certain men creeping in “unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ, “ they cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel and throw them into a state of confusion, which eventually leads the church into corruption and causes it to fall. Babylon is nothing more than the state of confusion, Genesis 11:6-9. You must understand that God will not dwell with sin and those that love it will be destroyed with it in the final day of God Almighty.

Throughout the seven churches, God tells us about those who we need to look out for and those that He hates and why He hates them. Their purpose is the same and their teachings are the same but their titles or names are not all the same. For an example, the Jesuits are the not the Nicolaitanes by name but they are by principle. They are wolves, all of them. They do not speak according to the Word of God. It is the teachings of Lawlessness that is contrary to Gods law that these men teach in almost all the pulpits today and of old.  In the book of Jude We can figure out who these grievous wolves are and what it says about them.

falseprophet

These men that have crept into the seven churches are men that teach LAWLESSNESS, no need to keep the commandments, that Jesus did away with the law at the cross, idols are okay to display in the churches and elsewhere, and that it is okay to bow to other so gods on earth, and that God loves you no matter what, no matter how much you sin, once saved always saved, it’s too difficult to keep the commandments, and such other nonsense practices and beliefs that these men have been preaching since the time of Ephesus and into today. It is the same doctrine of old that these men are still preaching today. They just hide behind the name of Jesus and preach a different Jesus in a very eloquent fashion and using crafty words to lure the people of God into Satan’s snares. Just take a big look at the Protestant Preachers on television. Filthy lucres they all are, Timothy 3:3. They want all your money so they can live rich and gain all the worldly possession they can and then make you believe that they are sending what you have sown to their ministry to the poor around the world but are not, they are lining their own pockets. THEIR REWARD AWAITS THEM!!! You better turn your flock around and get them on the right path to my Father’s house or suffer His WRATH TEN FOLD!!!

We see how God calls these type of men that teach this lawlessness and get others to practice it  in the church of Ephesus “Nicolaitanes, “ Revelation 2:6. This is the first name given to those that teach and practice lawlessness.  We can still call these men today Nicolaitanes and find them teaching smooth things that causes the flesh to be fed and not the spirit. These men are still found in the harlot Catholism, the false prophet apostate fallen Protestantism, and our separated brethren that are being taught truth and error in the already fallen church of Laodicea Adventism, Revelation 3:16-17, 3:20, 18:4.

paganrome

The second name that is given to these type of men that are corrupt and preordained to condemnation are those of Balaam, who taught Balak, Revelation 2:14. They also practice lawlessness as do Nicolaitanes. Balaam, who taught Balak are teaching false doctrine as well and had caused many to worship idols as they are still doing today. Balaam and Balak were king and false prophet who caused the people of God to commit sin and transgress the Law of God during the time of Pergamos and we can still see this type of paganism practices going on in the Catholic Church today. This has also engulfed Protestantism, and now we also see it taking deep root in the Adventist Church. What our separated brethren fail to realize, even those of old, is that God is not after things that are made by man’s hands. God is after of your heart and not the tattoo that you display on your arm of Jesus or the cross that you wear on your chest. This is pagan outward adorning and God finds no pleasure in that for it is written in the book of, Jeremiah 17:10 “I the LORD search the heart, [I] try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, [and] according to the fruit of his doings.”

We should not put our faith in these statues, idols, ceremonies, or worldly so called pagan celebrations such as Easter, and Christmas. See http://www.remnantofgod.org/halloween.htm http://www.remnantofgod.org/xmas.htm http://www.remnantofgod.org/easter.htm . The true Israel simply keeps the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus and walks on the path of righteousness, Revelation 14:12.  The children of God throughout the seven churches start out on the right path but as the wolves creep into the flock they devour truth and mix error with it to lead you to eternal damnation to only be destroyed with Satan and those that rebelled against God and His Holy Law in heaven.

worshipingpope

The third name that is given to these teachers of lawlessness is the Jezebel type that also teaches the same things as its predecessors of the Nicolaitanes and Balaam who taught Balak. Jezebel teaching is found in the church of Thyatira, Revelation 2:20 and still is being taught today in most churches. Most so called Christian today follow after these doctrines of idol worshipping, bowing down to the pope, worshiping Mary, or making an image of the cross. We can find proof in Law of God that instructs us not to do these kinds of things in the book of Exodus 20:3-5, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of anything] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me.”

heaven

You need to be reminded that breaking Gods law and thinking that you are going to inherit the Crown of life and walk through those gates into a perfect commandment keeping kingdom, is DEAD WRONG!!! We will be keeping the law of God in heaven where we are told in Proverbs 7:1-3, “My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee. Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart,” and you shall enter in to life, Matthew 19:17.

The defeated foe Satan and his fallen angels were kicked out of heaven for breaking Gods law. This is the same Law that the Nicolaitanes, Balaam who taught Balac and Jezebel were teaching throughout the generations of the seven churches found in Revelation chapters 2&3.

This lawlessness, commandment breaking, idol worshiping, and pagan practice preaching is what eventually cause the downfall of all seven churches. The church of God, the true Israel obeys His commandments because they love God but then some allow Satan and his agencies to creep in and take over the church which causes the church to leave its first love Jesus and fall into an apostasy, Revelation 2:4. Every time these men, starting with Ephesus to Laodicea, did the bidding of Satan’s work, the church became corrupt and fell into confusion which is Babylon the state of confusion.

The Church Ephesus, being the first Church of God actually walked with God on earth and was still fresh from His ascension back to heaven. The 12 disciples were zealous for the Word and were apt to teach. The zeal that they had for sharing their testimony of Jesus to the world, landed most of the 12 disciples a place to stay in the Beast’s (Rome’s)  prison cells where they were beaten most of the time and were treated the same way as Rome had treated our Saviour Lord Jesus Christ. If Rome could not silence the saints’ testimonies, then they would use other means of punishment like exiling them to far islands, torture, and then eventually they would sentence these saints to death.

killing

Rome has been persecuting the children of God since the start of Ephesus until now. Their persecutions intensified into the Dark Ages starting with Thyatira in 538AD where they killed millions of Gods elect. This was prophesied about in the book of Revelation 12:6, “And the woman (true church) fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days, which is 1260 days(538AD-1798AD) but you must remember that God had appointed a day to a year, Ezekiel 4:6.  This prophecy that was fulfilled, the antichrist had apologized for on national television where it appears that he was trying to gain your sympathy just like Satan tried to gain all the angels sympathy in heaven. This did eventually lead those that choose and fell for Satan’s charms, to be kicked out of heaven for joining the rebellion. The just judgment of God awaits them just like it does for those in the human race that want to believe a lie. Those that follow after the teachings of Rome and everyone else that teaches their doctrine will be lost and eventually destroyed. This is the same sympathy that Satan is manifesting through his servant the pope that is the antichrist and did apologized for all the murdering they did to Gods people in the Dark Ages and the time before that. “In catholic news service article# ze00030709 in the Vatican information service dated march 12, 2000 we find for the first time in history, john paul II confessed the sins committed in the service of truth intolerance and violence against dissidents: religious wars: violence and abuse of the crusades, and violent methods of the inquisition.”

persecutionr

This is how Rome treats the true children of God and those that don’t want to follow after their teachings. Satan manifests himself through this nation and its church during the seven churches and into the Jacobs time of trouble which will commence when they put forth the death decree on the world for those who will not follow after the Roman Catholic Churches traditions and obey it. This is going to be in the “New World Order.” This is no different from what the brethren of old had to go through and had to endure. We must all go through these trials for many reasons. It is a way to prepare us for eternal life and to prove our love for GOD. It will also be our final testimony to God and to the world that we love the Creator so much that we will obey Him and not Satan as the world and its church does.

In the Dark Ages we see that the Church of Thyatira had to endure a big trial with their lives. This as we know had started in the year 538AD when the pope had ordered a death decree on all that would not bow to his demands. In the year 1517AD was the start of Sardis and the beginning of the era of the Protestants. This marked the downfall of Thyatira. Martin Luther who started the reformation in 1517AD exposed the evils of the Roman Catholic Church and it’s false doctrine, pagan practices, and it’s misrepresentation of the true character of Christ. Christ did not say to kill your enemies and change the Law of God.

popecaptured

Sardis continued to be persecuted by the beast (Rome) until the pope was captured and lead into captivity by the French in 1798AD. “The beast receives a deadly wound,” Revelation 13:3. That was the start of the church of Philadelphia and the fall of Sardis but the continuing on of the Protestants. The name Protestant was given because they protested against Rome and all that they were teaching and how it was not accorring to the word of God. The church of Philadelphia was the best church with brotherly love. They were fleeing from the pope and the kings of Europe that had allowed this time of persecution by the Romans to happen In the Dark Ages. So as the Protestants made its way to the shore lines of America, they made sure that they were going to have a world without a King and a church without a pope.

Philadelphia did eventually fall like all the others because of its doctrine that was being taught by the Jesuits that Rome had sent over to infiltrate their pulpits.  This was an attempt to bring them all back to Roman teachings. The Protestants were being given a chosen by God’s messengers through His servants the Pioneers that were teaching the truth that was found in the King James Bible. The Protestants had rejected the truth that was being given to them by the Pioneers which we can find in the three angels message. The condition of Philadelphia began to grow weak because of the great disappointment.

disappointed

This disappointment was prophesied about in the book of, Revelation 10:9, 10 where we read “And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take [it], and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

The pioneers thought that Jesus was going to be coming back to earth but He did not, it was actually Jesus stepping into the most holy place in the heavenly sanctuary to do the investigative judgment on the dead first and then the living. This investigative work that Jesus is doing, will see who is going to be found worthy to enter into heaven. When this work is finished the archangel Michael will stand up and pronounce the investigative judgment is over with. Then it will be the fulfillment of Gods vengeance and judgment on the wick found In the seven last plagues that will literally fall in one year. Jesus and His just judgment on the world will be commenced as we have learned when Rome passes another death decree in the soon coming days of our time. The enforcement of SUNday laws.

pioneers

Philadelphia fell around the year of 1844 as the church of Laodicea began with the Pioneers. Laodicea would not last long because the Jesuits paved their way into the Seventh Day Adventist church, Laodicea. Laodicea is the worst church and has fallen just like the rest of the them before it. The General Conference meeting of 1888 had rejected the light that was given to them. They were to sound the three angels message to the world but they rejected it so God rejected them as his church and spued them out of His mouth, Revelation 3:16. This is why you see in Revelation 3:20 Jesus is standing outside the door knocking. He calls you to come out of this condition and to keep His commandments but because they are miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked in the church of the Seventh Day Adventist, most don’t hear Him.  We should remember, those that are in the remnant are to share the truth and let the loud cry go forth until all have had a chance to hear. It is not our job to convict them nor force them to follow after God. It is the work of the Holy Ghost to convict. It is loud and clear in the book of Romans 9:27 that a remnant will be saved.

sda

There are many reasons why the Seventh Day Adventists are entrapped into Satan’s snares and why they are so blinded. We know that many Jesuits had infiltrated the SDA churches over the years just like they did to the Protestants. We can read about their blindness and other characteristics they carry in Revelation 3:15-20. Pride has also filled their hearts and they think that they are the last and final chosen church of God. What they fail to realize is that God has a remnant that comes out of Loadicea like He had for the last six churches to start the next. This remnant is found in Revelation 12:17. This is the seed of the true Israel that the devil is making war with. It is out of this remnant that the 144,000 will be sealed. We know this because it is written in Revelation 14:4. These are they which were not defiled with women (apostate fallen churches [Babylon] or the harlot of Rome); for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. You are to come out of these churches and make your stand with the Remnant of her seed.

So in review we have seven churches seven remnants. Every time a church fell God called out His elect that hear Him and had formed a remnant to start the next.  The picture throughout the history of the world and the path to know where we should be today is found in Revelation chapters 2, 3, 12:17, 14, 21 & chapter 22.

(Rev. 14:3-5)  Final –> The 144,000 –> Living Saints

ellen For our brethren that are lost in the Laodicean condition and are being held captive to its doctrine, Sister White says in 1 Notebook Leaflets 99 “The church is in the Laodicean state. The presence of God is not in her midst.” Furthermore, we find more damaging truth to the seventh day Adventist church in the laodicean state:

” Is this the true church?  God forbid… flee quickly, flee, I say, for your lives!  You have not one moment to spare.  Utter destruction awaits every soul that is found in this Laodicean state…. In the name of Jesus, I exhort you again to flee from the Laodiceans, as from Sodom and Gomorrah.  Their teachings are false and delusive; and lead to utter destruction.  Death!  DEATH!! eternal DEATH!!!  is on their track.  Review and Herald,  vol 1, November, 1850, #1 “The Laodicean Church”, p 8

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!!

“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life..” 1 Timothy 6:12
