For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
(2John 1:7 KJV)
A shocking book written by the Pope, Joseph Ratzinger, contained in The Pontifical Biblical Commission, entitled CLICK HERE to View: The Jewish People and their Sacred Scripture in the Christian Bible has been identified as a tool which is used to deny that Christ came in the flesh. The Pontifical Biblical Commission has been noted for its denial of Jesus Christ as the Son of God, a clear example of antichristianity. Such an anti-christian doctrine denies the prophesied Messiah.
POPE RELEASES A BOOK DENYING CHRIST’S EARTHLY MINISTRY
The above teachings, reportedly endorsed by Pope Benedict XVI, is a clear example of Anti-Christian teachings, as the son of perdition, the man of sin, has vividly engendered a falling away from Biblical truth. “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” (2Thess. 2:3). Prophecy meeting its fruition, clearly possesses a threat to Truthseekers who are not well grounded in current events. Thus it is important for all to take heed to God’s fourth angel’s Loud cry, forewarning saints to evacuate spiritual Babylon (Rev 18:1-4). Benedict XVI has also been seen taking part in Jewish worship service, epitomizing, rapid growing ecumenism. A dogmatic sect of Judaism appears to have unified with Papal traditions.
A real question has emerged with our studies regarding the denomination of the 144,000. Yet, as the shaking process continues in the church, many will be searching for terminology to define the last day denomination. A denomination is defined as a group of believers. The term 144,000 is mentioned throughout the scriptures, identifying those who will be able to withstand tribulation without an Intercessor, following the close of probation for the world (Daniel 12:1,2; Rev 6:17). Christ, through John the Revelator spoke to the Seven Churches, illustrating the movement of God’s church since the time of Christ to present, from Ephesus to Laodicea (Rev 1:11). Identifying where we are in history is essential, as we will need to uphold the characteristics of the Last day Church, Philadelphia,
( Rev 3:7,8 ).
Without compromising, as we learned in the history of the Black Horse (Rev 6:5), compromise weakens the Church of Christ/Body of Christ. Balances in scripture symbolizes compromise. Thus we must focus on strengthening the true church of Christ, those that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus Christ (Rev 14:12). These last days of persecution, regarding the Enforced National Sunday Law, the Mark of the Beast,will purify the church, as those who are sincere believers will stand for truth and remain focused on Christ, without falling away. The emergence of the Laodicean condition in the Adventist Church in 1859 has been problematic for the final work (Testimonies Vol. 1 Index Part Five), thus all those who are sincere believers must heed the council of the faithful and True Witness, overcoming this Laodicean condition. True sincere believers will be taught by the Holy Spirit and all will share beliefs that are solely grounded by the Scriptures.
The church of Philadelphia is true Adventism. As we prepare for the Latter Rain (James 5:7), embracing the return of Christ, true sincere believers must focus on becoming harvest ripe, perfecting Christ-like characters ( Matt 5:48 ). Harvest ripe by biblical definition entails a process of establishing …”first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear”(Mark 4:26-29). Christ’s good seed’s ( Matt 13:38 ) preparation and perseverance will hasten His return “But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps” (Matt 25:4). Oil in the scriptures symbolizes the Holy Spirit. Babylon has fallen, however God’s Kingdom and true remnant will live on eternally:
Mat 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
Mat 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
Brethren, we must remain faithful until the end, as our Redeemer, Christ, has reassured his chosen “… that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
