Mistaking The Identity of Christ
Advertisement

In the “Introduction” of the series of Power Point studies, on this topic of “Mistaking The Identity of Christ”, there is a warning given in the writing of Ellen G. White, which says, “In the Word is given the warning, "Some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils." -- Letter 208, 1906." (Retirement Years, Page 78)

It is said in her writings that, "The spiritualistic theories regarding the personality of God, followed to their logical conclusion, sweep away the whole Christian economy." {1SM 203.4}

Speaking of these spiritualistic theories regarding The Personality of God, it is said, "They estimate as nothing the light that Christ came from heaven to give John to give to His people." {1SM 203.4} "They teach that the scenes just before us are not of sufficient importance to be given special attention." {1SM 203.4} "They make of no effect the truth of heavenly origin, and rob the people of God of their past experience, giving them instead a false science." {1SM 203.4}

Speaking of the spiritualistic theories, it is said, “…these sentiments have been looked upon by some as the grand truths that are to be brought in and made prominent…” as the grand truths of the faith. {1SM 204.1} "The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-day Adventists." {1SM 204.2} This reformation "would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith. (Selected Messages, Volume 1 Page 204.2}

In her writings, Ellen G. White wrote about what GOD thinks about deception. In one of her devotional books, she says, “God Hates Deception”. She speaks of The Word of GOD, Who says, "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins" (Isaiah 58:1).

"Hypocrisy is peculiarly offensive to God. A large majority of the men and women who profess to know the truth prefer smooth messages. They do not desire to have their sins and defects brought before them. They want accommodating ministers, who will not arouse conviction by speaking the truth. They choose men who will flatter them, and in their turn they flatter the minister who has shown such a "good" spirit, while they revile the faithful servant of God. . . .

"Many praise the minister who dwells on the grace and mercy and love of Jesus, who is not particular to enforce duties and obligations, who does not warn of the danger of hypocrisy, or present the terrors of God's wrath.

"The Lord's work is earnest and decided, above deceit and hypocrisy. His true shepherds will not praise and exalt man. They will come before the people with a plain "Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel." They will bear His message, whether men will hear or whether they will forbear. If men despise God's Word, and trust in oppression, hypocrisy, and worldliness, they must declare against them God's denunciations, that, if possible, they may be aroused to repentance. If they are too proud to repent and confess their errors, to turn to God, welcoming His salvation and seeking His favor, the Lord will remove His light from them and will leave them to walk in the way they have chosen.

"Those who drive the Lord's faithful messengers into corners, who discourage them, who stand between them and the people, that their message may not have the influence God designed it should, are answerable for the deceptions and heresies that come into the church as a result of their course. They have a fearful account to render to God. After the Lord has repeatedly warned His people, and they still refuse to hearken to His voice, and will not be instructed, their guilt becomes peculiarly abhorrent to Him. The record of their rebellion is written in a book before Him, and will confront them when the judgment shall sit and the books shall be opened.--Manuscript 10, Feb. 16, 1899, "Words of Warning."" (This Day With God, Page 55)

With a few studies now available for download, this series of presentations addresses the spiritualistic theories regarding The Personality of God, which many within the church have already accepted as part of their beliefs, to give up the doctrines, which have stood, as the pillars of our faith before the Adventist Church was even formed. It would be wise for you to know what The Scriptures actually says, about knowing The Truth about Christ, and the deceptions and heresies that have come into the church, which resulted in a course in which many have giving up The Truth of The Faith, to follow the spiritualistic theories regarding the personality of God.
