Mark of the Beast coming thru Saule Omarova, Biden’s nominee for Comptroller of the Currency?

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.
Revelation 13:16-18.

We Seventh-day Adventists know without a doubt that the Mark of the Beast will be not just worshiping on Sunday when the governments around the world decree it, but actually being forced to break God’s 7th day Sabbath. When you submit to their demands to do that, you will receive the Mark of the Beast, and there is no more hope of redemption for you.

“President* Joe Biden wants to put an actual Communist — self-proclaimed “radical” Cornell University law school professor Saule Omarova — in charge of the nation’s banking system.

Saule Omarova graduated from the Soviet Union’s Moscow State University in 1989 on the Lenin Personal Academic Scholarship, … ““The core idea here is simply to allow all U.S. citizens and lawful residents, local governments, non-banking firms and non-business entities to open transactional accounts directly with the Federal Reserve, thus bypassing private depository institutions,” she wrote. “In this sense, it is a variation on the familiar FedAccounts — or FedCoin, ‘digital dollar wallets,’ etc. — theme. In principle, FedAccounts can be made available as an alternative to bank deposit accounts, upon a person’s request.””

“as Kristin Tate wrote for The Hill on Wednesday: Taken to its extreme, this would mean that the Federal Reserve, acting on behalf of Washington, could become the only place citizens could deposit their money. Such a massive transformation would be accomplished by replacing consumer deposits into a new digital dollar, held by the Fed.” https://pjmedia.com/vodkapundit/2021/09/30/lenin-smiles-biden-nominates-soviet-trained-radical-saule-omarova-for-top-banking-post-n1520765

Mark of the Beast cannot happen under a cash system

I’ve been saying this for quite a long time, especially ever since I went to India first in 1998: “It is not possible for this to be fulfilled (normally thinking) if cash is in use. With cash, it doesn’t matter what you look like or what you believe, shopkeepers will take your cash.

HOWEVER, if there is no more cash, then it is a simple thing, kind of like what we are seeing now regarding methods to keep people from getting sick, to keep people from having access to their digital currency.

What should we do? We should vote for people who will not install workers of iniquity into high positions in government, use the money you have now for spreading the Three Angels’ Messages, and prepare spiritually and physically (but not hoarding food) for the Time of Trouble that is coming soon.

The Two Witnesses cannot be the Old and New Testaments

Last week I downloaded an interesting-sounding audio sermon from the net by a SDA pastor titled “Learning From Egypt, Babylon, and France”. Obviously this is going into Revelation 11 and 13 territory, and there were several interesting things mentioned in it, However, the same, standard, unbiblical SDA position that the Two Witnesses are the Old and New Testaments was preached, startling me to hear again such unbiblical preaching glossed over in a veneer of biblical study.

We Seventh-day Adventists better get to studying deeply soon. As Revelation 11, 12 and 13 start unfolding around us, how are we going to support a belief that is so contrary to the plain reading of the Scriptures?

Revelation 11:1-14

Rev 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
Rev 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Rev 11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
Rev 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
Rev 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
Rev 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Rev 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
Rev 11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
Rev 11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
Rev 11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Rev 11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
Rev 11:14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

Let’s break it down verse by verse.

1. “temple of God” definitely means the true church that is following God, and possibly also a physical temple somewhere sometime.
2. “holy city” may mean God’s true people, but in the Bible, it always refers to “Jerusalem” the city in Israel.
3. Was the Bible only given power “1260 days/years”? No. Possibly they were in “sackcloth” during the Dark Ages.
4. “Two olive trees”. Not sure, might be OT and NT, or maybe something else.
5. This is one of the 2 strongest verses showing that the two witnesses cannot be the Old and New Testaments. Did fire come out of the OT and NT during the Dark Ages and kill anyone? No.
6. This is power the 2 witnesses have. Yes, the Bible talks about these supernatural things.
7. Have the OT and NT ever “finished their testimony”? No. Have they ever been “overcome”? No.
8. “Our Lord was crucified” in Jerusalem in Israel. Only there. This is super-clear.
9. How many people of China, Japan, Brazil, Indonesia, India etc. even heard of the French Revolution in 1798 when it was happening? Basically zero. And nobody tried to put them in graves either, so no one could have tried to prevent them from being put in graves!
10. No one except maybe inside France sent presents to each other when France officially abolished the Bible in 1798 or so.
11. The “Spirit of God” left the Bible for 3 1/2 years around 1798? Really?! How can any Seventh-day Adventist who professes to believe the Bible believe this?
12. The Bible did not suddenly go from being persecuted to being greatly exalted around 1798. Yes, the Bible Societies were very strong in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, but there was nothing special at that time to be specially noticed by the Bible’s enemies.
13. There was no earthquake of any note in France around the 1798 time frame. There is absolutely nothing in history to point to showing that people who hated the Bible in France got really scared about seeing the Bible being exalted by God.
14. No “woe” has come quickly at all since 1798. It hasn’t. (To be honest, none of the woes or Trumpets have had their final fulfillment yet here July, 2021.

Two Witnesses

The two witnesses cannot be the Old and New Testaments for many reasons

So we see that if we believe what the Bible says, the two witnesses cannot be the Old and New Testaments.

I call on all my fellow Seventh-day Adventists to study what you believe, to show yourself approved unto God. Please let me know in the comments what you believe the Two Witnesses to be.

日本で一番安いプロテイン(トップ20)(Cheapest protein in Japan)

むきむきボイ

最近、プロテイン(たんぱく質)が足りないと感じるようになりました。 数ヶ月前から腕の筋肉が痛くなり、頭がモヤっとして悪化しているような気がして、精神状態もいつものようにハッピーではなくなってきました。 昔から超痩せ型で、丸いBMIメーターでは目盛りがマイナスになるほどで、それは40年ほど前にベジタリアンになる前からそうだった。

プロテインが足りないのでは? この素朴な疑問から、最も安いタンパク質を摂取できる方法を探すことにしました。

植物性は最高

大学時代以来、肉や魚を食べていないので、植物性タンパク質が第一候補です。 植物性の食事は神の計画であり、多くの動物や魚は病気であると信じています。 しかし、自分的には「肉=タンパク質」というイメージがあります

神が創った動物を殺して、血を抜いて食べるというのは、自分にとってはめっちゃ気持ち悪いことです。 今、このことを書いているだけで、胃が痛くなってきた。 ウェー!。 肉にはたくさんのタンパク質が含まれていることは知っているけど、神様が「生きるため食べなさい」と言わない限り、食べないつもりです。

しかし、魚は別物だと思います。 イエス様が魚を食べたところを聖書で読んだ。 魚を食べただけでなく、祝福して増やし、他の人にも食べさせたのです。 イエスはそれをあるところで「良い」と言ったのです。 そして、最も驚くことは、復活した体になってからも魚を食べていたということです。 これには驚きました。 蜂蜜も。 だから、イエス様は菜食主義者ではなく、ベジタリアンでもなく、魚を食べるベジタリアン(ペスカタリアン)だった。 羊肉を食べていたと言う人もいるけど、霊感を受けた言葉の中には、その事を確実に証明する言葉はどこにもありません。

では、日本で最も安いタンパク質源は何でしょうか? 勝者は「大豆」で、間違いなく第1位は→
1. きなこ(焙煎大豆パウダー)
他に近いものは→
. おから
. 豆腐
. 高野豆腐

リストアップした物は、元となるタンパク源の種類にグループに分けていています。 この記事の下の方に、これらの物を順番に並べた簡単な表があります。

きなこは、日本で一番安いタンパク源です

きなこは、甘くないまろやかな味を出すために、お餅などのお菓子にトッピングする日本の伝統的な食材です。 この写真のように薄茶色で、通常は何も加えていません。 たまに砂糖を入れる人もいる。 もう大きな袋を買う人は少なく、小さな袋に入っていてわらび餅に振りかけるものとしてしか知らない人は多いかも。 この袋には、カナダとアメリカ産の大豆が入っています。

しかし、タンパク質の量を見てください!

100gあたり36.5gとは、すごい! この袋には200g入っていて、お値段は? 業務スーパーで買った。 https://www.gyomusuper.jp/
日本全国に店舗があり、安いことで知られている。 ここでは、73gのタンパク質が65円で摂取でき、1円で1g以上のタンパク質が摂取できることになります。 1円で1g以上のたんぱく質が摂れる商品は、現在私が知る限り日本ではこれだけです。 ちょっと待った! 今、きなこブームになってて、今日買いに行ったら、1kgの袋がなんと298円でした。 367gのプロテインが298円で!? 信じられへん! 1gあたり0.81円、つまり1.23gが1円です。

きなこの栄養表、日本で一番安いプロテイン

Cheapest sources of protein in Japan (Top 20)

muscle bound boy

Recently I’ve started to feel like I’m not getting enough protein in my diet. For several months my arm muscles have hurt, my brain seems to be in a fog and getting worse, and my mental state is not as happy as I normally am. I’ve always been super skinny, registering off the scale on the downside on those little BMI meters, and that was true even before I became vegetarian around 40 years ago.

Maybe I’m not getting enough protein? This simple question has put me on a quest to find the cheapest method to get me protein in my body.

Plants are best

Plant-based protein is obviously my first choice, as I haven’t eaten meat or fish since I was in college. I believe a plant-based diet is God’s plan for us, and that many animals and fish are diseased. But I have this mental image that meat = protein.

Now the idea of killing an animal that God has created, and draining the blood and eating it, is beyond gross to me. Just writing about it now, my stomach is starting to churn. Yuck! I know there is lots of protein in meat, but unless God tells me to eat it, or to stay alive, I’m not going to.

But to me, fish is different. I see where Jesus ate fish. Not only did he eat fish, but he blessed it and multiplied it and gave it to others to eat. He called it “good” in one place. And the most amazing thing about it, is that he even ate some AFTER he had his resurrected body. That astounds me! Honey too. So no, Jesus was nowhere near being a vegan, not even a vegetarian, but a fish-eating vegetarian (pescatarian). Some people say he ate lamb, but there is nothing in the inspired words to definitely prove that position.

Kinako is hands-down the cheapest source of protein in Japan!

OK, so what is the cheapest source of protein in Japan? The clear winner is “soybeans”, and without a doubt, number 1 is:
. Kinako (roasted soybean powder)
The only other things that give this a run for the money are:
. Okara (Soybean leftovers from making tofu)
. Tofu
. Koya dofu (freeze dried tofu)

The sources I checked are based on classification of the underlying protein source. There is a simple table at the bottom of this post listing these sources in order.

kinako is the number one cheapest protein source in Japan

Kinako is a traditional Japanese topping on rice cakes and other sweets to give a bit of a mellower, not-so-sweet taste. It is light brown in color, as shown here, and usually has no added ingredients. Sometimes people add sugar to it. Few people buy a whole bag of it anymore, and many people probably only know it as something in a tiny bag to sprinkle on warabi mochi. This bag has soybeans from Canada and the U.S.

But look at the amount of protein!

36.5 grams per 100 grams – wow! This bag has 200g in it, and the cost? I bought it at Gyomu Super. https://www.gyomusuper.jp/ They have stores all over Japan, and are known for being cheap. Here you can get 73g of protein for only 65 yen, which means you get MORE than one gram of protein for 1 yen. This is the only product I currently know of in Japan where you can get more than one gram of protein for one yen. HOLD THE PRESSES! It looks like there is a mini boom in kinako right now, as today when I went to get some more, they had 1kg bags for – drum roll – only 298 yen!!! 298 yen for 367g of protein! This is unbelievable. Only .81 yen per gram, or 1 yen for 1.23g!

nutrition label for roasted soybean powder (kinako) highest protein for the money

Secrets Unsealed Summit 2021 with Pr. Stephen Bohr breaking Sabbath again

Secrets Unsealed, an organization run by pastor Stephen Bohr, will be breaking the Sabbath again in 2021 by having their annual summit at Tenaya Lodge in Yosemite, forcing lodge workers to serve them meals on the Sabbath.
secrets unsealed summit 2021 pr. Bohr break Sabbath

Why does Secrets Unsealed break the Sabbath?

This isn’t the first time I’ve asked them to repent for doing this. Four years ago I contacted them, asking them to please repent and refrain from doing this in the future. First, I got an angry reply, then I got a very detailed reply showing how they carried this question to their board, and decided it was OK. Their reasoning was that they are doing a good thing by giving Ellen White books to the Lodge workers, and some of those workers are deeply impressed by the truth contained in those books.

So should we break the Sabbath to evangelize?

If God is fine with breaking his 7th day Sabbath in order to evangelize, then why not go shopping on Sabbath and drop some tracts? Why not go to a sporting event and tell the people sitting around you about Jesus? Or why not break any of the other commandments, but make up for it by spreading some gems of truth while you’re doing it?

Information on Secrets Unsealed “Rightly Dividing The Word” Summit 2021

UPDATE: This summit will be held online only, due to the corona virus.
Dates: October 27-31, 2021 (Wednesday-Sunday)
Location: Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite
1122 Highway 41, Fish Camp, CA 93623
Summit speakers: Pastor Stephen Bohr, Milton Teske MD, Pastor CA Murray, Pastor Wes Peppers
Complete information is available on their site: Secrets Unsealed Summit 2021

Let’s call on them to keep God’s 7th day Sabbath holy.

Thomas Paine reappears to unite Left and Right

Recently I remade a video of Thomas Paine reappears and put it on Youtube:

What makes this important? Because Thomas Paine is mentioned in the inspired book: “The Great Controversy Between Christ and His Angels, and Satan and His Angels”. It is ONLY in the original, 1858 edition.

According to the inspired words, one of Satan’s angels is going to impersonate Thomas Paine near the end time, in order to get people to doubt the Bible.

Since many people do not know who Thomas Paine was, and why he was such a bad man, and even question the idea that he would be important enough for Satan to make a special effort to “bring him down from heaven” and make it look like Thomas Paine reappears, this video will try to make it all abundantly clear.

Thomas Paine was one of the most influential writers of the American Revolution. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Paine

Thomas Paine’s writings

His most famous book/pamphlet is “Common Sense”. This book, probably more than any other, helped spread the ideas of independence from Europe, and of democracy in America, and thus, the world. In his pamphlet “American Crisis”, which George Washington had read to his soldiers, he coined the famous phrase: “These are the times that try men’s souls”.

However, he later turned against the Bible and attacked it fiercely. In “Age of Reason”, he wrote: “Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel.”

“It is far better that we admitted a thousand devils to roam at large than that we permitted one such impostor and monster as Moses, Joshua, Samuel, and the Bible prophets, to come with the pretended word of God and have credit among us.”
And, “stupidity of the Bible”.

So we see that Thomas Paine, by his own admission, believes the Bible is just pretended to be from God, is from demons, and is stupid!

This is the background for the amazing quote in the original, 1858 Great Controversy Between Christ and His Angels, and Satan and His Angels (by Ellen White) detailing how Satan will make it appear that Thomas Paine reappears and is living in heaven now!

Chapter 30 “Spiritualism”

Thomas Paine, whose body has mouldered to dust, and who is to be called forth at the end of the 1000 years, at the second resurrection, to receive his reward, and suffer the second death, is purported by Satan to be in heaven, and highly exalted there. Satan used him on earth as long as he could, and now he is carrying on the same work through pretensions of having Thomas Paine so much exalted and honored; and as he taught on earth, Satan is making it appear that he is teaching in heaven. And some on earth who have looked with horror at his life and death, and his corrupt teachings while living, now submit to be taught by him who was one of the vilest and most corrupt of men; one who despised GOD and his law.

He who is the father of lies, blinds and deceives the world by sending his angels forth to speak for the apostles, and make it appear that they contradict what they wrote when on earth, which was dictated by the Holy Ghost. These lying angels make the apostles to corrupt their own teachings and declare them to be adulterated. By so doing he can throw professed Christians, who have a name to live and are dead, and all the world, into uncertainty about the word of GOD; for that cuts directly across his track, and is likely to thwart his plans. Therefore he gets them to doubt the divine origin of the Bible, and then sets up the infidel Thomas Paine, as though he was ushered into heaven when he died, and with the holy apostles whom he hated on earth, is united, and appears to be teaching the world.

Satan assigns each one of his angels their part to act. He enjoins upon them to be cunning, artful and sly. He instructs some of them to act the part of the apostles, and speak for them, while others are to act out infidels and wicked men who died cursing GOD, but now appear to be very religious. There is no difference made between the most holy apostles and the vilest infidel. They are both made to teach the same thing. It matters not who Satan makes to speak, if his object is only accomplished. He was so intimately connected with Paine upon earth, and so aided him, that it is an easy thing for him to know the very words he used, and the very handwriting of one of his devoted children who served him so faithfully, and accomplished his purposes so well. Satan dictated much of his writings, and it is an easy thing for him to dictate sentiments through his angels now, and make it appear that it comes through Thomas Paine, who was his devoted servant while he lived. But this is the masterpiece of Satan. All this teaching purporting to be from apostles, and saints, and wicked men who have died, comes directly from his Satanic majesty.

This should be enough to remove the vail from every mind and discover unto all the dark, mysterious works of Satan;–that he has got one whom he loved so well, and who hated GOD so perfectly, with the holy apostles and angels in glory: virtually saying to the world and infidels, No matter how wicked you are; no matter whether you believe in GOD or the Bible, or disbelieve; live as you please, heaven is your home;–for every one knows that if Thomas Paine is in heaven, and so exalted, they will surely get there. This is so glaring that all may see if they will. Satan is doing now what he has been trying to do since his fall, through individuals like Thomas Paine. He is, through his power and lying wonders, tearing away the foundation of the Christians’ hope, and putting out their sun that is to lighten them in the narrow way to heaven. He is making the world believe that the Bible is no better than a storybook, uninspired, while he holds out something to take its place; namely, Spiritual Manifestations!

Thomas Paine reappears to unite Conservatives and Liberals!

“So what if Thomas Paine reappears?” you say? Here’s what makes it such a big deal: Right now in America, there is a very bitter divide between Conservatives and Liberals. Conservatives call Obama the “antichrist” while Liberals call Trump unprintable names. Conservatives are usually for Christian morality (?), small government, and individual freedom. Liberals are more concerned with social justice (?), big government, and group consensus morality. The impasse seems to be too great to ever, ever be reconciled peacefully.

Except that Thomas Paine already does it! His writings on freedom and small government fire up even strong Conservatives, like the Tea Party members, while at the same time, his writings on social justice and against Christianity give the Progressives a warm feeling that he is on their side – the supposedly morally and intellectually superior side.

So Satan’s angels will impersonate Thomas Paine, and bring “peace and safety and unity”, to get the world to follow them as they call for a law to make Sunday a holy day, and put restrictions on people who keep God’s 7th day Sabbath holy. They will look like they have won for a while, but God will destroy them in the 7 Trumpets and 7 Last Plagues, and then Jesus will destroy the rest of the wicked when he comes in the clouds.

Dead people are dead, not in heaven

Here is a forum showing some connections to Thomas Paine reappears:

Let’s be prepared with God’s words that “The dead know not anything.” (Ecclesiates 9:5).

Great Controversy full audio (1858 edition)

Today I put up the narration of the Great Controversy full audio book on Youtube. You can see it here:

Great Controversy complete book’s audio.

Since Youtube doesn’t allow just audio, I put up a different pic at the start of each chapter. If you want to go straight to a particular chapter, you can do that easily by clicking on the little white arrow which should open up a listing of all 41 chapters. Choose which one you want, and get there with one tap. 🙂

So why haven’t I done this before? Well, in the back of my mind, I’ve wanted a new pic for each paragraph in this book for a long time. Rather than wait any longer, it’s time to get something done right now! Actually, I would like to make the whole book into an animated movie.

The Great Controversy audio was recorded in India

This was recorded in India in 2006, and while listenable, not top quality. I really appreciate the help given me there to do this!

I am aware that there is another recording made of the Great Controversy full audio several decades ago, but perhaps this version I did will be of value to some who prefer a different voice.

One cool thing about having it all in one Youtube video, is that if you login and watch it (and like it I hope!) you can logout, and then pick up at the exact place next time you login.

Read along with the entire text of the Great Controversy

The book that this is narrated from is available free on my web site at:
The Great Controversy Between Christ and His Angels, and Satan and His Angels (1858) original edition

I pray this will give glory to King Jesus, and listeners will be saved in His kingdom, forever and ever.

Corona gets real in India

Not having a TV or reading newspapers, and having been raised with a skeptical mind, I’ve looked pretty objectively at the corona crisis, and have seen that while it is bad, it has killed just a few more people than the standard flu does every year, and it is not anywhere near as lethal as viruses in other pandemics, such as the Spanish flu in 1918 which killed over 20,000,000 people worldwide. The vast majority of those killed by the Corona virus have been elderly, or those with major health issues already, like diabetes or obesity etc.

India melts down under corona cases

Indian hospital with corona patients

Now, however, my mind is changing on the matter, as two Brothers in India that are very dear to me have contracted this new strain, and one has written:

I am admitted in covid positive center. survival due to oxygen. Please uphold me in special prayer so that I can have speedy recovery and be in His vineyard.

I am under observation for one week strictly and doctor will give final decision. I hardly communicate because my throat is chocking and having serious breathing problems. I am battling for life. Please pray and thank you.

Change mind on corona?

Some might be tempted to say that I’ve changed my mind just because it’s hit home, but that’s not it. Something is different now. I can feel it. Here in Japan too a healthy-appearing 50 year old man came back from India last week, had the pcr test at the airport, was confirmed positive, was sent to a dormitory for quarantine, 3 days later developed breathing problems and lots of coughing which subsided the next day, but then died just three days later. Japanese man dies from new Indian corona

Hospitals in Japan are basically refusing new patients. I read just this morning of a case where a 60 year old in Tokyo went to to the nearest hospital where he was told to go to the govt. health center because they couldn’t help him, and he died the next day. One other man was left in an ambulance for 1 1/2 days.

Vaccine savior?

Many people are pinning their hopes on the vaccines, but I read yesterday that a fair percentage of vaccinated people contract the corona virus again, and some of them die too. So I’m still not convinced of the effectiveness of vaccines. Of course the vaccine is not the Mark of the Beast, but it may be a precursor to get people used to the idea of taking some kind of object from the govt. that can confirm your identity. I believe that the Mark will be Sunday worship after it is enforced by the govt., but there will obviously be some kind of visible aspect to it also.

May we prepare for the end times, get out of cities, grow our own food, evangelize the people around us, and study our Bibles to learn what is going to come over the world like a tsunami (and probably literally too in the 7 Trumpets!)

Please pray for my two friends in India too.

Stephen Bohr disbelieves Ellen White statement about amalgamation

Many Seventh-day Adventists have a hard time believing in what Ellen White wrote. For example, the following quote regarding “amalgamation” is thrown under the bus by nearly all Adventist scholars and leaders and today I found out that even Secrets Unsealed Pastor Stephen Bohr disbelieves Ellen White when she writes about “amalgamation”. Here is the quote from

“Important Facts of Faith in Connection with the History of Holy Men of Old” (Spiritual Gifts v.3):

Instead of doing justice to their neighbors, they carried out their own unlawful wishes. They had a plurality of wives, which was contrary to God’s wise arrangement. In the beginning God gave to Adam one wife–showing to all who should live upon the earth, his order and law in that respect. The transgression and fall of Adam and Eve brought sin and wretchedness upon the human race, and man followed his own carnal desires, and changed God’s order. The more men multiplied wives to themselves, the more they increased in wickedness and unhappiness. If one chose to take the wives, or cattle, or anything belonging to his neighbor, he did not regard justice or right, but if he could prevail over his neighbor by reason of strength, or by putting him to death, he did so, and exulted in his deeds of violence. They loved to destroy the lives of animals. They used them for food, and this increased their ferocity and violence, and caused them to look upon the blood of human beings with astonishing indifference.

But if there was one sin above another which called for the destruction of the race by the flood, it was the base crime of amalgamation of man and beast which defaced the image of God, and caused confusion everywhere. God purposed to destroy by a flood that powerful, long-lived race that had corrupted their ways before him. He would not suffer them to live out the days of their natural life, which would be hundreds of years. It was only a few generations back when Adam had access to that tree which was to prolong life. After his disobedience he was not suffered to eat of the tree of life and perpetuate a life of sin. In order for man to possess an endless life he must continue to eat of the fruit of the tree of life. Deprived of that tree, his life would gradually wear out.


Here Pr. Bohr shows his disbelief:

https://secretsunsealed.org/content/Newsletters/newsletter1Q12web.pdf
The Ellen G. White Estate’s Francis Nichol shows his disbelief: https://whiteestate.org/legacy/issues-amalg-html/
David Read, while showing his disbelief, gives very detailed insight into the brouhaha this quote has caused among Adventists, and covers the history of a special debate called by the G.C. just on this subject in San Francisco in 1947: https://www.fulcrum7.com/apologetics/2021/3/24/the-meaning-of-amalgamation-part-1

“Amalgamation of man and beast” was a “base crime”.
It is not possible for animals to commit crimes.
Humans and animals interbred.
Any other explanation is showing disbelief in God’s messenger.

Pastor stephen Bohr disbelieves Ellen White and should repent for his unbelief in the Lord’s messenger.

Stephen Bohr disbelieves Ellen White and ancient artifacts

I have seen historical artifacts on the internet clearly showing such base crimes as amalgamation of man and beast. Here is a site with pics of some to get you started on the subject: https://www.el-libertario.com/en/reptilian-gods/

Let’s believe God, instead of throwing doubt on God’s words.

Where society was headed in 2008

Recently I updated a page on www.earlysda.com/links.html. It is a page of links I made before I got this new-fangled blog working around 2005. Several things there are very interesting, with one seeming to be prophetic:

2004/12/12 Top Anglican adviser sees economic persecution coming for true church.

Jayne Ozanne, adviser to the Anglican church, speaks like a prophet in this article.

“Sacrificial giving is not a concept that we in the West have either embraced or understood. We are too comfortable and, as a result, too compromised. I see a time of great persecution coming, which will drive Christianity all but underground in the West. I believe that this will primarily take the form of a social and economic persecution, where Christians will be ridiculed for their faith and pressurised into making it a purely private matter.”

(2021, This prediction is occurring right now with social media cancelling, and even banks refusing Christians service!
Sadly, Ozanne came out as gay in 2015).

Let’s get serious about the persecution that has started for Christians.

Sabbath truth for Ray Comfort, Living Waters, and yes, SDAs too!

I put up a new video on Youtube yesterday showing Ray Comfort and Living Waters and all Sunday Keepers that they need to keep the Sabbath (and SDAs too). Sabbath video for Ray Comfort and Living Waters

I’ve been a fan of Ray Comfort and Living Waters for many years. I really believe that Ray Comfort is probably the best I’ve seen ever at street evangelism.

Response to Ray Comfort’s Sabbath video

This video is a response video to his recent video where he was doing street evangelism, and one of the guys kept asking him about the 7th day Sabbath. Ray was obviously flustered, and a bit testy when the man showed Ray that he was interested in Ray’s salvation, just as Ray is interested in using 9 of the 10 commandments to bring people to Christ.

Strangely, Living Waters turned off comments for this video. They allow comments for abortion videos, evolution videos, atheist videos, and just about everything else, but not for this video talking about the Sabbath. That alone tells us that something is unusual about this subject.

Using 10 Commandments to bring people to Christ

Ray rightly uses the Commandments as a tool to bring people to Jesus Christ. He shows that they have lied, committed adultery (or fornication), blasphemed God’s name, and stolen something. Then he introduces the solution to their sin problem, the only way to get it taken care of – by believing on Jesus. But not only does he not keep the Sabbath himself, he gets upset when people point out to him that it isn’t “The Nine Commandments”, it is “The Ten Commandments”.

Exodus 20:8-11 “Remember the Sabbath day to set it apart as holy.
For six days you may labor and do all your work,
But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Did Jesus keep the Sabbath?

Of course he did:
Luke 4:16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

The first day of the week is mentioned only 8 times in the New Testament, and it is never mentioned as being a day of worship.

Does “breaking bread” equal “worship”?

In his quick response to the man in the video who pointed out the need to keep the Sabbath, Ray says in the video that the early Christian church was “breaking bread” on Sunday right after the cross, showing clearly that the day of worship had been changed. Hmmmm, does “breaking bread” = “worship”?

Breaking bread is mentioned only 7 times, and it is never mentioned as being an act of worship, altho it is spoken of in connection with a worship service once.

Breaking bread is part of the story where Jesus went to Emmaus:
Luke 24:30 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
35 And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

Nothing there except a statement that they ate bread.

How about Paul on a sinking ship?:
Acts 27:35 And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to God in presence of them all: and when he had broken it, he began to eat.

He thanked God for his food, and then ate. No worship service here either. There is one time where they had a worship service and they broke bread, as Paul’s preaching lasted all night, and a young man was brought back to life.

Doesn’t Colossians 2 say to not judge about keeping the Sabbath?

Many Sunday-keepers say that Colossians 2 says to be cool with not keeping the Sabbath. But is that what it really says? Reading carefully, it doesn’t do away with any of God’s commands, it only tells the Christians to not be worried about what unbelievers think of them for keeping God’s laws. (look for phrase “no man” or “any man”, there are 4 times, and they refer to unbelievers).

Paul either kept the Sabbath, or else he lied when he told Festus that he hadn’t broken the law of the Jews:
Acts 25:8 While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all.

Justified by the free gift of the blood of the Son of God

No, Seventh-day Adventists don’t believe we are justified by keeping the law. Salvation is a free gift of the precious blood of Christ shed for us while we were still sinners. After being justified (which means made right), we don’t continue in our sins. Just as Ray Comfort correctly shows, we turn from sin and follow Jesus.

i call on fellow SDAs to consider how to give a good witness for Jesus regarding the Sabbath, and also consider keeping all of God’s Sabbaths, just as Matthew 26:18 shows that Jesus did.

And I call on Ray Comfort and everyone at Living Waters and all Sunday keepers to consider what the Bible says about the Sabbath, and resolve to follow and obey the holy words of God.

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Forecast record cereal crop harvests

Many Climate Change believers want to gloom and doom everything, but the facts are, the world is growing more food all the time.

Here is a snip of the FAO report: “In addition to its record forecast for global wheat production in 2021, the FAO said it’s expecting a new and higher estimate for world cereal production in 2020, now seen at 2.76 billion tonnes, a 1.9% increase from the previous year”.

This is cause for rejoicing!

Catholic “Father” more righteous than SDA “President”

A Youtube video by Life Site News, a Catholic organization that fights to protect the least of these my brethren, has an interview with “Father” James Altman. His straight to the truth message is so refreshing, especially after all the hemming and hawing done by our own SDA leaders. He really calls to task many of the US bishops who are openly defying the words of God in the Bible. He even rightly says at the 5:30 mark something so straight, that it made me write this post: “You cannot be Catholic and a Democrat”.

Wow!
https://youtu.be/rWBkZ6B7QYE

Some other gems are that he says we can expect to be persecuted if we are truly (Catholic), we have to build our spiritual arks, preach from the pulpit to put an end to abortion, “we have it pretty good, maybe that’s why we have this problem with faithlessness, Satan loses in the end, but Christ conquers!

It would be great to hear something like this from an Adventist……

President Trump loves the “least of these my brethren” to the end

One of the very last things President Trump did as president was to make a statement regarding protecting the lives of those still in their mother’s wombs. This is tremendous! I doubt America will ever have such a godly president again, at least until the fireball judgments from God basically force people to consider their evil ways.

This article
https://www.theepochtimes.com/roe-v-wade-a-constitutionally-flawed-ruling-trump-says_3661285.html
says:

President Donald Trump on Jan. 17 called the landmark Supreme Court decision that dramatically expanded access to abortion “constitutionally flawed” and noted that it’s led to the termination of tens of millions of unborn babies.

“This month, we mark nearly 50 years since the United States Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. This constitutionally flawed ruling overturned State laws that banned abortion, and has resulted in the loss of more than 50 million innocent lives,” Trump said in a proclamation.

“But strong mothers, courageous students, and incredible community members and people of faith are leading a powerful movement to awaken America’s conscience and restore the belief that every life is worthy of respect, protection, and care. Because of the devotion of countless pro-life pioneers, the call for every person to recognize the sanctity of life is resounding more loudly in America than ever before. Over the last decade, the rate of abortions has steadily decreased, and today, more than three out of every four Americans support restrictions on abortion.”…

“As a Nation, restoring a culture of respect for the sacredness of life is fundamental to solving our country’s most pressing problems. When each person is treated as a beloved child of God, individuals can reach their full potential, communities will flourish, and America will be a place of even greater hope and freedom. That is why it was my profound privilege to be the first President in history to attend the March for Life, and it is what motives my actions to improve our Nation’s adoption and foster care system, secure more funding for Down syndrome research, and expand health services for single mothers.”

Would that God’s remnant church leaders would have one tenth the courage to protect the life of baby Jesus that President Trump has! God bless you sir!

Persecution is coming for Christians from the Left

Many people in America are calling for banning others that don’t agree with their opinions.
Seventh-day Adventist publications have been telling us for decades that this would come from the Right, but instead, we see it coming from the Left.

Last week the President of the United States was banned from several online platforms, ostensibly for the reason of “inciting violence”. While it is true that many of his supporters did enter the Capitol building, there was almost no looting, burning, or killing by those who entered, except that one police officer did die, with early reports indicating he had a stroke.

In comparison, Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters have been burning down businesses, killing several people, entering and destroying federal property etc. with almost no legal consequences for their actions for over half a year now. In fact, many corporations and even SDA leadership fell all over themselves donating money, and praising their efforts at creating anarchy.

Big Tech Censorship

This article on PJ Media has an interesting quote:

Big Tech censorship is the most lethal side of the Cancel culture coin because it penetrates every nook and cranny of American culture and consciousness. Just as legitimate news stories that conflicted with the mainstream media’s 2020 presidential campaign narrative were censored by Facebook and Twitter — the most consequential recent example being the refusal prior to the November 3 election to cover Hunter and Jim Biden’s international influence peddling — influential voices on the Left are now defining Wednesday’s riot at the U.S. Capitol as a “coup,” “racism,” “a domestic terror attack” and an “insurrection.” That definition opens the way to much more serious forms of punishment.

Anyone who is interested in what is happening around them has seen that the main stream TV news, radio news, newspapers etc. have all been promulgating Leftist lies for many years now. With some like the main TV networks, New York Times, NPR, etc., the bias against Christian teaching is so obvious, that no honest Christian would even consider using them as their primary news source.

The internet has provided many sites giving true news, and has been foremost in reporting what is actually going on. But I first noticed that it was getting difficult to find the real news on the internet search engines last summer. Now, with Google, Facebook, Twitter, and nearly all the big tech companies going full Leftist, it is getting harder to even stay on the internet itself, let alone find truthful news sources. Google will basically either ban your channel on Youtube, or ignore your site in its search engine crawling if they don’t agree with your content. Facebook and Twitter are even more open about how they want to ban everyone who doesn’t toe their Socialist/anti-God line.

Trump banned, but Khamenei not?

People in Israel have called out Twitter’s blatant hypocrisy by noting:

how is it that President #Trump can be suspended from @Twitter, but the President of Iran, @khamenei_ir, who literally calls for genocide of Israel, violence to Americans and denies the Holocaust, is allowed to stay on?

In the rush to condemning the protests on Capitol Hill, many blamed the Trump supporters for every bad thing that happened. However, in the aftermath, we see that there were some Antifa leaders involved with that group, using it as a cover to promote anarchy. This is very similar to what happened in the rise of power of Adolf Hitler, in the burning of the Reichstag: But some ‘happenstances’ are so convenient as to defy credulity — whether they took place in 1933 or last week.

Christians, get ready!

Christians, make sure you have everything on and ready for use, just like Ephesians 6 states:
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
