As inquiries have been coming into our office about the relationship of Daniel Mesa with Secrets Unsealed, we feel that a word of clarification is in order.
The marketing department of Secrets Unsealed hired Daniel Mesa on May 27, 2014, however, on December 6, 2016, the ministry terminated Daniel’s employment for a variety of reasons.
We would like to make it clear that neither Pastor Bohr nor anyone else at Secrets Unsealed shares Daniel’s theological views of the Godhead, particularly his understanding of the personhood and nature of the Holy Spirit, which we believe are at odds with Scripture, and the Spirit of Prophecy. Matthew 28:18-20 and 2 Corinthians 13:14 (among many other verses) indisputably teach that there are three distinct persons in the Godhead each in unity with the other and that all three are God in the highest sense. Ellen White is likewise clear:
“There are three living persons of the heavenly trio. In the name of these three powers, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, those who receive Christ by living faith are baptized, and these powers will cooperate with the obedient subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ.” Bible Training School, March 1, 1906
Although we can see the work and fruit of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Prophecy has warned us not to delve into forbidden paths such as trying to explain the Holy Spirit’s nature—what or who He is:
“The nature of the Holy Spirit is a mystery. Men cannot explain it, because the Lord has not revealed it to them. Men having fanciful views may bring together passages of Scripture and put a human construction on them, but the acceptance of these views will not strengthen the church. Regarding such mysteries, which are too deep for human understanding, silence is golden.” Acts of the Apostles, p. 52
Secrets Unsealed likewise teaches that Jesus is the Divine Son of God, co-substantial with the Father and sharing His nature. Our position is that Jesus is God in the highest sense, a person distinct from the Father yet equal with Him, in unity with Him, and sharing with Him all the divine attributes. We do not believe that Jesus was created at any point in eternity past for in Him is life ‘original, unborrowed, underived.’
From the statement, Bible believers are again falsely accused of delving into a mystery. It would be well if the speaker/writer removed the log in his eye first, for current SDA literature is full of meterial doing the very same thing they falsely accuse others of. Not only have SDA writers written much about the Holy Spirit but borrowed much from pagan and apostate sources on this subject, while ignoring plain statements from EGW (or abusing/misinterpreting/misapplying her writings) to support the false trinity theory. I’m talking about writings like the book Evangelism and Leroy Froom's texts like Movement of Destiny.
Please show us those texts from E G White that is not in favor of the Holy Spirit as part of the Godhead please.
So what did Daniel Mesa do or say?
It is erroneous to accuse Bible believers of denying the divinity of Christ. Bible believers who question tge trinity doctrine within and without the SDA church do believe in the divinuty of Christ. The accusation is a falsehood and diverts attention fron attempts to probe the pagan roots of the false trinity doctrine. Bible believers also very much believe in the existence of the spirit of God and His Son.
Dan Some, maybe I should say most SDA bible believers also believes in God the Holy Spirit. I guess you did not study last quarter lessons on the Holy Spirit?
Numbers don't make a false doctrine true, nor a true doctrine false. The Pharisees and the crowd far outnunbered the few believers like Simon the Cyrene. Last quarter's lesson is one of those attempts to hoodwink, nay, force the church into accepting the false theory of the trinity. The lesson quarterly no longer stands as the voice of God on doctrine.
