This study will be on the 7th Day Adventist. This cult began in the early 19th century by William Miller (1782-1849), who was a FALSE PROPHET! He predicted that the Lord Jesus Christ would return to Earth in glory on Mar. 21, 1844, and later on Oct. 22, 1844! Neither prophecy was fulfilled!
Deuteronomy 18:20-22 "But the PROPHET, which shall presume to speak A WORD in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall WE KNOW the word which the LORD HATH NOT SPOKEN? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if THE THING follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD HATH NOT SPOKEN, but the prophet hath spoken it PRESUMPTUOUSLY: thou shalt not be afraid of him."
The FALSE PROPHET is identified by speaking "A WORD" that does not come to pass. It does not matter how many times he's correct, it's how many times he's WRONG! Just ONE error is sufficient to make one a false prophet, regardless of whether he was correct 3000 times. When prophesying, the prophet is to bat nothing short of a 1.000. In other words, his prophesying MUST be accurate EVERY time--not 99.9% of the time. Therefore, William Miller was undoubtedly a FALSE PROPHET!
Isaiah 8:20 "To the LAW and to the TESTIMONY: if they SPEAK NOT according to THIS WORD, it is because there is NO LIGHT in them."
Romans 3:4 "God forbid: yea, LET GOD BE TRUE, BUT EVERY MAN A LIAR"
If a man's testimony is not spoken according to the word of God, he has NO LIGHT in him, regardless of how sincere he presents it. The word of God is the FINAL AUTHORITY in all matters of faith and practice! Words uttered contrary to the words of the KING JAMES 1611 AUTHORIZED VERSION (AV 1611) is coming from pit of HELL. And don't you forget that!
Therefore, the cult was instituted by a Bible rejecting HERETIC! Furthermore, he was a LIAR because he spoke presumptuously concerning the second advent of the Lord Jesus Christ. One can't help but think of the Jehovah's Witnesses (JWs) who stated in The Battle of Armageddon, Studies in the Scriptures, Series IV, 1897, p. 621, "But we ARE in the end of this Gospel age, and the KINGDOM is being established or set up. Our Lord, the appointed KING, IS NOW PRESENT, since October 1874, A. D., according to the testimony of the prophets..."
Imagine the audacity of these two jackasses (Job 11; Ex 13)--Charles T. Russell and William Miller! Anyone who would follow the teaching of a false prophet is a FOOL. And we say that CHARITABLY!
Ellen White (a health reformist who later propagated the movement) wrote a book called, "Questions On Doctrines," which she claimed to receive by direct revelation from HEAVEN! Today many Adventists believe her writings to be in harmony with the Holy Bible. As other cults (JWs, Catholics and Mormons, ect.), the doctrines of this cult have changed considerably in the last 50 fifty years due to its confrontations with Bible believing Baptists, who knew a LIAR when they saw one. Nevertheless, the primary doctrines of this cult are as follows:
Now we shall briefly examine these so-called Biblical doctrines in the LIGHT of the AV 1611. And the further we go, the funnier it will get. Shall we? Let's!
This is the teaching that man is not a trichotomy, but rather consists of actually TWO PARTS--SOUL AND SPIRIT! This is nonsense. The scriptures make it clear that a man consists of THREE PARTS--BODY, SOUL AND SPIRIT! The words do not mean the same in Greek, Hebrew nor ENGLISH. They are not synonymous!
1 Thessalonians 5:23 "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole SPIRIT and SOUL and BODY be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."
This is clear to anyone who can read 6th grade English. The very idea of saying that a man only has a body and spirit, when the Bible says that "God made man in his OWN IMAGE." According to 1 John 5:7, God is a trichotomy. Thus, Adam was made having a body, soul and spirit!
Genesis 2:7 "And the LORD God formed man of the DUST (BODY) of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the BREATH of life (SPIRIT); and man became a living SOUL."
Hebrews 4:12 "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the DIVIDING asunder of SOUL and SPIRIT, and of the JOINTS AND MARROW (body), and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
In 1611, you were told that a SOUL (after the body is buried) can sit on a throne, pray, see, talk, thirst, feel pain and be TORMENTED!
Revelation 6:9-11 "And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the SOULS of them that were SLAIN (in the body) for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they CRIED with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and AVENGE OUR BLOOD on them that dwell on the EARTH? And white ROBES were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their FELLOWSERVANTS also and their brethren, that should be KILLED AS THEY WERE, should be fulfilled."
Revelation 20:4 "And I saw THRONES, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the SOULS of them that were BEHEADED for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."
Clearly, the SOULS of these Tribulation saints were TALKING, after their heads were DECAPITATED (by the Antichrist) on the altar! You know that there is no way possible for a fleshly man to talk without a HEAD. You say, "It's figurative and symbolic." Shut your mouth! It's nothing of the kind, especially in the light of Luke 16.
Luke 16:22-30 "And it came to pass, that the BEGGAR DIED (physically), and was carried by the angels into ABRAHAM'S (a dead man) bosom: the RICH MAN ALSO DIED (physically), and was BURIED (physically in the grave); And in HELL (not the grave) he lift up his EYES, being in TORMENTS, and SEETH ABRAHAM afar off, and LAZARUS in his bosom. And he CRIED and said, Father Abraham, have MERCY on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and COOL MY TONGUE; for I am TORMENTED IN THIS FLAME. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy LIFETIME (in the flesh) receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is COMFORTED, and thou art TORMENTED. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I PRAY thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: For I have FIVE BRETHREN; that he may testify unto them, lest they also COME INTO THIS PLACE OF TORMENT. Abraham saith unto him, They have MOSES and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them FROM THE DEAD, they will repent."
The rich man and the beggar died PHYSICALLY and were both buried PHYSICALLY. Yet, they can see each other in the UNDERWORLD. Nobody sees anything in the graveyard (Ecc 9:5-6)! The rich man was in torment in the flames of HELL. His desire was for his five brethren to repent before they DIED. He was talking to ABRAHAM, a man who's BODY was consumed by MAGGOTS hundreds of years before.
People who repudiate a literal, burning Hell (other illiterate folks like the Adventists), consider this passage to be a PARABLE (Eze 20:47-49). It is not a parable! Each time the Lord speaks a parable, it is preceded by "he spake this parable unto them" or something to that effect. THE HOLY SPIRIT DID NOT SAY THAT THIS PASSAGE WAS A PARABLE! The word parable occurs in Luke 15:3 (47 verses before this passage) and Luke 18:1 (2 chapters after it). Jesus Christ never NAMES anybody in his parables. Here, Abraham and Lazarus are named! If you insist on the passage as being a parable--you apparently CANNOT READ. Tell whoever taught you that to soak his head! THE WORD PARABLE DOESN'T OCCUR IN THE ENTIRE CHAPTER!
Following the consumption of the forbidden fruit, Adam LOST God's image. In Gen 5:3, we are told that he "begat a son in his OWN likeness, after HIS IMAGE"--not God's image! Adam's spirit died. God said in Gen 2:18, "in THE DAY that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die." This apparently had no reference to Adam's PHYSICAL death on THAT DAY because he lived to be 930 years old. The Adventist's demoniac teaching comes from their perversion of Ezekiel 18:4.
Ezekiel 18:4 "Behold, all SOULS are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that SINNETH, it shall DIE."
In the Old Testament (OT) a man's SOUL DIED because his soul was stuck to his FLESH. Under the New Testament (Mt 26:28, 27:50, Heb 9:16-22), a man's soul is circumcised (cut) from his flesh by an "OPERATION" of God "made without hands" once that man's FAITH was placed in the Lord Jesus Christ (Col 2, Rom 10). Thus the believer has TWO NATURES (Rom 7). The Christian is trapped in a body of DEAD FLESH (Rom 6:2-11, Gal 2:20, Rom 7:24-25) until THE RAPTURE. This is why we read in Lev 19 about a man's soul TOUCHING solid objects. When Paul speaks of an unsaved man being in BONDAGE to the flesh, this is what he's making a reference to. He speaks about false brethren (like 7th Day Adventists) who "spy out the LIBERTY which we (BACs) have in Christ" (Gal 2:4) in an attempt to bring us back into that bondage (the LAW). This is accomplished by fooling the unstudious (2Tim 2:15) Christian into submitting to the "FAITH AND WORKS" system, which was "abolished" on Calvary in 33 AD by the Lord Jesus Christ (Mt 26:28, 2Cor 3:13-17)! ONE DOWN AND SEVEN TO GO.
This is the teaching that there's no suffering nor torment in Hell (which according to them is the GRAVE), because the body is annihilated or completed destroyed. This is nonsense. There is no such thing as annihilation. The laws of physics which are permanent state otherwise. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can neither be CREATED nor DESTROYED; it only changes to a different form--yet it still exists. In other words there's no such thing as NOTHING! Therefore, the term annihilation is not a real word. If you were to drop a glass on a concrete floor, would you have annihilated it? Of course not! It's still there as a BROKEN GLASS! Any fool could figure that thing out.
Revelation 19:20 "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were CAST ALIVE into a lake of fire BURNING with brimstone."
Revelation 14:10-11 "The same shall drink of the wine of the WRATH OF GOD, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be TORMENTED WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their TORMENT ascendeth up FOR EVER AND EVER: and they have NO REST day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."
Revelation 20:10 "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the BEAST and the FALSE PROPHET ARE, and shall be TORMENTED day and night FOR EVER AND EVER."
These heretics say that the words "for ever and ever" don't really mean "FOR EVER AND EVER," but rather--until the occupants are BURNT UP--the miss application of Malachi 4:1! Then this would mean that they are only tormented TEMPORARILY. Which would also mean that the SAINTS would only dwell with Jesus Christ temporarily--not forever and ever as the BOOK says! Obviously, these people cannot read! Notice that the beast and the false prophet are STILL BURNING in the lake of fire after 1000 years! These two members of the SATANIC trinity were both "cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone" BEFORE THE 1000 YEAR MILLENNIAL REIGN. If a body can't burn up in 1000 years--it's NEVER going to be burned up! Nobody is annihilated in Hell!
Revelation 22:3-5 "And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the LAMB shall be in it; and HIS SERVANTS shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their FOREHEADS. And there shall be no night there; and THEY (His servants) need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth THEM (His servants) light: and THEY (His servants) shall REIGN FOR EVER AND EVER."
Matthew 25:46 "And THESE (the unsaved) shall go away into EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT: but the righteous into life ETERNAL."
As you can see there's nothing TEMPORARY about either location. In both of them the occupants are there "for ever and ever." For those of you who place more trust in the Greek than in the living words of the living God written in 5th grade ENGLISH, the Greek for the words "for ever and ever" MATCHES the same concerning the existence GOD in Rev 4:9! An unsaved man will burn in Hell as long as God lives (Rev 20:10)!
Daniel 12:2 "And many of them that sleep in the DUST (the body) of the earth shall AWAKE (the both resurrections), some to EVERLASTING LIFE, and some to SHAME and EVERLASTING CONTEMPT (dishonor or disgrace)."
How shall the wicked be PUNISHED forever if they're annihilated?! Furthermore, how shall the wicked experience everlasting SHAME and CONTEMPT if they're annihilated?! There's no way possible! Thus, the teaching that the lost are annihilated in Hell is LUDICROUS! Again, annihilation is not even a scientific law. The first law of thermodynamics states that matter can neither be created nor DESTROYED! Matter is changed into another form but it is still there! Those who die in their sins will be punished in "EVERLASTING FIRE" as long as GOD LIVES! So if you're one of them prepare for it!
Matthew 5:29 "And if thy right eye offend thee, PLUCK IT OUT, and cast it from thee: for it is PROFITABLE for thee that ONE of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into HELL."
Why would the Lord Jesus Christ say that it is BETTER (Mk 9:47) to AMPUTATE offensive body parts to AVOID THE HELL? Because Hell is not the GRAVE, Son! You go to the grave rather you lose an eyeball or not! What a silly thing to say if HELL is the GRAVE! Do you think that Jesus Christ was stupid or what!?
Matthew 5:22 "But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of HELL FIRE."
Matthew 25:41 "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into EVERLASTING FIRE, prepared for the devil and his angels."
Clearly, Hell is a place burning with FIRE and BRIMSTONE! My friend, there is no fire in the GRAVE! You know it and I know it. TWO DOWN AND SIX TO GO!
Since the subject has been covered thoroughly in my pamphlet Eternal Security, I will only speak briefly on it here.
Eph 2:8-9 "For by GRACE are ye SAVED through FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the GIFT of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast."
Titus 3:5-7 "NOT BY WORKS of righteousness which WE have done, but according to his MERCY (grace) he SAVED US, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed upon us abundantly through JESUS CHRIST our Saviour; That being JUSTIFIED BY HIS GRACE, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life."
Rom 3:27-28 "Where is boasting then? It is EXCLUDED. By what law? of WORKS? NAY: but by the LAW OF FAITH. Therefore, we CONCLUDE that a man is JUSTIFIED BY FAITH WITHOUT THE DEEDS OF THE LAW."
Rom 4:5-6 "But to him that WORKETH NOT, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, HIS FAITH is counted for RIGHTEOUSNESS. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God IMPUTETH RIGHTEOUSNESS WITHOUT WORKS."
Gal 2:16 "Knowing that a man IS NOT justified by the WORKS of the law, but by the FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST, even we have BELIEVED in Jesus Christ, that we might be JUSTIFIED by the FAITH of Christ, and NOT BY THE WORKS of the law: for by the works of the law shall NO FLESH BE JUSTIFIED."
Gal 3:6-8 "Even as Abraham BELIEVED God, and it was accounted unto him for RIGHTEOUSNESS. Know ye therefore that they which are of FAITH, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen by FAITH, preached before the GOSPEL unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed."
John 6:27-28 "They said unto him, What shall we do, that we may work the WORKS (plural) of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the WORK (singular) of God, that ye BELIEVE on him whom he hath sent."
Apparently, nobody who ever got SAVED was saved by WORKS. That's very clear in the passages above. A man is saved by FAITH in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ--NOT HIS OWN! Furthermore, we read nowhere in the New Testament (N. T.) about a born again Christian (BAC) LOSING his salvation. We read about him losing his health and in some cases his life for unconfessed SINS (1 Cor 11:30-32), but never his salvation! In fact, God has promised to keep the BAC saved!
1 Corinthians 1:7-8 "So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall also CONFIRM you unto the END, that ye may be BLAMELESS in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Ephesians 4:30 "And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are SEALED unto the day of REDEMPTION."
Philippians 1:6 "Being CONFIDENT (unlike the Adventists) of this very thing, that HE (God) which hath begun a good work in you will PERFORM IT until the day of Jesus Christ"
1 Peter 1:3-5 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant MERCY hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance INCORRUPTIBLE, and UNDEFILED, and that FADETH NOT AWAY, RESERVED in heaven for you, Who are KEPT by the POWER OF GOD THROUGH FAITH UNTO SALVATION ready to be revealed in the last time."
Every Christian is KEPT SAVED by the "POWER OF GOD," not his own works. God the Father does the works. Those who claim that their ETERNAL LIFE can be lost are actually implying that God is to WEAK to keep him saved--LIKE HE PROMISED TO!
Philippians 2:13 "For it is GOD WHICH WORKETH in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure."
The Lord Jesus Christ promised the BAC that his name would NEVER be blotted out of the book of life.
1 John 5:4 "For whatsoever is born of God OVERCOMETH the world: and this is the VICTORY that overcometh the world, even our FAITH (not works)."
Revelation 3:5 "He that OVERCOMETH (the BAC), the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I WILL NOT BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels."
Revelation 2:11 "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the CHURCHES; He that OVERCOMETH SHALL NOT BE HURT OF THE SECOND DEATH (Hell)."
According to Jesus Christ, you couldn't go to Hell even if you tried, unless he was a LIAR! BACs who think they can lose ETERNAL life are calling God a LIAR.
Numbers 23:19 "God is not a man, that he should LIE; neither the son of man, that he should REPENT: hath he said, and shall he not DO IT? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it GOOD?"
When God says something, you can bet your life on it. Any man taking MAN'S word over God's is a FOOL. THREE DOWN AND FIVE TO GO.
This has been covered above thoroughly under the false doctrine of Soul Sleep. Therefore, we won't spend much time on it here.
Matthew 10:28 "And fear not them which KILL THE BODY, but ARE NOT ABLE TO KILL THE SOUL: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in HELL."
Why would Jesus Christ say that man can kill your BODY, but not your SOUL if they are the same! Because they ARE NOT the same! Every man goes three different places after death. The spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecc 12:7), the body returns to the dust from whence it came (Ecc 12:7) and the soul goes to heaven or hell (Luke 16). Your soul is IMMORTAL, but the body isn't, according to JESUS CHRIST! Never mind what your deluded GREEK PROFESSOR taught you. Let's deal with the FACTS! The scriptures are very CLEAR. You know it and I know it! FOUR DOWN AND FOUR TO GO!
The Adventists claim the JEWISH Sabbath as their day of worship because (although not admitted) they think they're JEWS! This is nonsense! Nowhere in the AV 1611 was a BAC commanded to keep the Sabbath.
Exodus 31:16 "Wherefore the children of ISRAEL shall keep the SABBATH, to observe the Sabbath throughout THEIR generations, for a PERPETUAL COVENANT."
God said that the Sabbath day is to be kept by the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AS A PERPETUAL COVENANT! The Sabbath is therefore an EVERLASTING covenant between God and ISRAEL--not the CHURCH.
Ezekiel 20:13, 20 "HOUSE OF ISRAEL...I am the LORD your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; And hallow my SABBATHS; and they shall be A SIGN BETWEEN ME AND YOU, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God."
The Sabbath is called a SIGN! Well, who are the signs for? Who is it that REQUIRES A SIGN? The Gentiles? NO! The Church? NO!
1 Corinthians 1:22 "For the JEWS REQUIRE A SIGN, and the Greeks seek after wisdom"
The Jews require a SIGN because their nation began with SIGNS (Ex 4). See my pamphlet, The Charismatic Farce for further details. When the apostle Paul makes a mention of the ten commandments in the New Testament (NT), he purposely OMITS the Sabbath (Rom 13:8-10)! Why? Because it is not for the Church to observe. It's for the Jews exclusively!
Nehemiah 9:14 "And madest known unto them thy holy Sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant"
The Sabbath was first made known to Israel by Moses in 1500 B. C.! This explains why nobody observed it in the book of Genesis (2000 years of history)! IT WAS NOT GIVEN TO GENTILES AT ANYTIME. The teaching of TWO laws (God's and Moses') is also ridiculous. There is no such as the MORAL LAW found in the Book. The word MORAL is found nowhere in the AV 1611! The Adventists believe that the "moral law" is the TEN COMMANDMENTS and that the "ceremonial law" is the LAW OF MOSES. To the contrary, the Bible speaks of the law as a "WHOLE."
James 2:10 "For whosoever shall keep the WHOLE LAW, and yet offend in ONE point, he is guilty of ALL."
Gal 3:10 "For as many as are of the WORKS of the law are UNDER THE CURSE: for it is written, CURSED is everyone that continueth not in ALL THINGS which are written in the law to DO THEM."
Those under the law were responsible for obeying "all things" written in the law (2,713 commandments)--not just TEN as taught by 7th Day Adventists and others who can't read! The Bible makes it clear that the Christian is not under the law!!
Rom 3:19 "Now WE KNOW that what things soever the law saith, it saith to THEM who are UNDER THE LAW: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the WORLD may become guilty before God. Therefore by the DEEDS of the law there shall NO FLESH be justified in HIS SIGHT: for the law is the knowledge of sin."
Clearly, the law is for an UNSAVED man. The law came by Moses (John 1:16) and was given to ISRAEL (Ex 19, 20)--not the Gentiles, and certainly not the CHURCH OF GOD.
Romans 6:14 "For sin shall not have dominion over YOU: for YE ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW, but under GRACE."
Notice that in the following passages, the so-called "moral" and "ceremonial" laws are CONGLOMERATED. Nobody has the right to SEPARATE what God has joined together (Mt 19:6)!
Leviticus 19:5-9, 11-12 "And if ye offer a SACRIFICE of peace offerings unto the LORD, ye shall offer it at your own will. It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if ought remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire. And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted. Therefore every one that eateth it shall bear his iniquity, because he hath profaned the hallowed thing of the LORD: and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest. YE SHALL NOT STEAL, neither deal falsely, neither LIE one to another. And ye shall not SWEAR by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD."
Leviticus 19:17-20 "Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF: I am the LORD. YE SHALL KEEP MY STATUTES. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee. And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; she shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free."
Leviticus 19:22-23, 30 "And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the TRESPASS OFFERING before the LORD for his sin which he hath done: and the sin which he hath done shall be forgiven him. And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye shall count the fruit thereof as uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it shall not be eaten of. Ye shall KEEP MY SABBATHS, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD."
The reason that only 10 commandments were given at Sinai was because the Jews didn't want to receive the other 2,703 directly from GOD!
Exodus 20:18-19 "And all the people saw the THUNDERINGS, and the LIGHTNINGS, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood AFAR OFF. And they said unto Moses, SPEAK THOU WITH US, and we will hear: but LET NOT GOD SPEAK WITH US, LEST WE DIE."
Deuteronomy 5:23-31 "And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders; And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth. Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any more, then WE SHALL DIE. For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? Go thou near, and HERE ALL that the LORD our God shall say: and speak THOU unto us all that the LORD our God shall speak unto thee; and we will HEAR IT, and DO IT. And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken. O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and KEEP ALL MY COMMANDMENTS always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Go say to them, Get you into your tents again. But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee ALL THE COMMANDMENTS (in addition to the ten that they HEARD), and the STATUTES, and the JUDGMENTS, which thou shalt teach them, that they may DO THEM in the land which I give them to possess it."
Moses went back up to get the other 2,703 commandments of the law. Thus, there is only ONE LAW--not two! This law was abolished by the Lord Jesus Christ on Calvary!
2 Corinthians 3:6-17 "Who also hath made us able ministers of the NEW TESTAMENT; not of the LETTER (the law), but of the SPIRIT: for the LETTER KILLETH, but the spirit giveth LIFE. But if the MINISTRATION OF DEATH (the law), written and engraven in STONES (the 10 commandments), WAS GLORIOUS, so that the children of ISRAEL could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be DONE AWAY: How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? For if the ministration of CONDEMNATION (the law) be glory, much more doth the ministration of RIGHTEOUSNESS EXCEED IN GLORY. For even that which was made glorious had no glory in THIS RESPECT, by reason of the glory that EXCELLED. For if that which IS DONE AWAY (the law) was glorious, much more that which REMAINETH is glorious. Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to THE END of that which IS ABOLISHED: But their minds were BLINDED (Rom 11:25): for until this day remaineth the same VAIL untaken away in the reading of the OLD TESTAMENT; which vail is DONE AWAY IN CHRIST. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is LIBERTY."
Galatians 3:21 "Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been A LAW given which could have GIVEN LIFE, verily RIGHTEOUSNESS SHOULD HAVE BEEN BY THE LAW."
Hebrews 8:6-8 "But now hath he obtained a MORE EXCELLENT ministry, by how much also HE (Jesus Christ) is the mediator of a BETTER COVENANT, which was established upon BETTER PROMISES. For if that first covenant had been FAULTLESS, then should NO PLACE have been sought for the SECOND. For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a NEW COVENANT with the house of ISRAEL and with the house of Judah."
The OT had FAULTS in it, but the NT is PERFECT. This is why the OT was ABOLISHED! There's no LIBERTY under the law, thus, it is called the "ministration of DEATH." As proven above, the law can SAVE NOBODY! SIX DOWN AND TWO TO GO!
This heretical teaching is so ludicrous that it would take a CRACK POT NUT to believe it! They also believe that the "mark of beast" was here BEFORE Adam and Eve were created. Leaving the soap operas for the women, we shall see what the BOOK says about the "MARK of the beast."
Revelation 13:15-18 "And he had power to give life unto the image of the BEAST (the Antichrist), that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a MARK IN THEIR RIGHT HAND, or in their FOREHEADS: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the MARK, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the BEAST: for it is the number of a MAN; and his number is SIX HUNDRED THREESCORE AND SIX (666)."
The "mark of the beast" is VISIBLE. The beast is described as a MAN (literally) and a LEOPARD (figuratively). The leopard is an Asian as well as an INTEGRATED animal. He's yellow-brown (Asian), with a white belly (European), and black spots (African) all over him! Jeremiah makes it clear that a leopard has black spots!
Jeremiah 13:23 "Can the ETHIOPIAN change his SKIN (BLACK), or the LEOPARD HIS SPOTS? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil."
He has the feet of a BEAR (Russia) because he will move like a Communist. He has the mouth of a LION (Great Britain) because he will speak English. Both of these animals are none for MARKING TREES! The Antichrist will mark his followers (Rev 13:16), and trees are a figure of people (Mt 3:10; Mk 8:24; Jude 12; Ps 1:3). And of course trees come in FAMILIES and have CELLS and ROOTS just as people do!
There is no Sabbath mentioned anywhere in connection with the "mark of the beast" except in the corrupted minds and literature of 7th Day Adventists! THAT'S A FACT! Those of us who believe God's word are no more worried about keeping the Sabbath day than a monkey is worried about winning the Presidential election! When the Antichrist appears on this earth--there will be no Christians HERE (2Th 2:7; Rev 3:10; 5:9). As noted earlier--this teaching is s JOKE! THAT'S SEVEN DOWN AND ONE TO GO!
This will be very brief! Since the Christian IS NOT under the law (as proven above), the dietary laws written in the law (Lev 11 for example) have NO APPLICATION TO THE CHURCH.
Colossians 2:14-16 "BLOTTING OUT the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it OUT OF THE WAY, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let NO MAN therefore judge you in MEAT, or in DRINK, or in respect of an HOLYDAY, or of the new moon, or of the SABBATH DAYS."
Galatians 4:10-11 "Ye OBSERVE DAYS, and months, and times, and years. I am AFRAID OF YOU, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in VAIN."
This pamphlet should convince anyone who BELIEVES God's word, that the HERETICAL TEACHINGS of the 7th Day Adventists are anti-biblical when it comes to Christian DOCTRINE! I will close this examination with the following passage:
1 Timothy 4:1-5 "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall DEPART FROM THE FAITH, giving heed to SEDUCING SPIRITS, AND THE DOCTRINES OF DEVILS; Speaking LIES in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; FORBIDDING to marry, and commanding to ABSTAIN FROM MEATS, which God hath created to be received with THANKSGIVING of them which believe and KNOW THE TRUTH. For EVERY CREATURE of God is good, and NOTHING to be refused, if it be received with THANKSGIVING: FOR IT IS SANCTIFIED BY THE WORD OF GOD AND PRAYER."
I pray that this study has been an eye-opener to those of you who have been DECEIVED by the Devil and leaders of this CULT! May the Lord bless you and good day.

Defendiing God's Infallible Truth. 1 Timothy 6:3-4 "If any man teach OTHERWISE, and consent not to wholesome WORDS, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the DOCTRINE which is according to godliness; He is proud, KNOWING NOTHING, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings" (KJV)
