"The Seventh Day Adventist Church is not a club."
What aspects of a club does the SDA church NOT have?
We vote 'members' in and out. We vote what we want to do and what we believe. We have activities. We invite others to join us. Am I missing anything? What evidence do you have that there is anything that we do that is not like a club?
"We are held accountable for the knowledge that we gain through the scriptures . "
Where in scripture is there talk about a sunday law being mandated? nowhere.
Saying such things is just adding to the book of Revelations which already describes the mark of the beast.
that's true there will be a great multitude which no man can number going to heaven but they will taste death. The 144,000 will be the living saints when Jesus comes but, the characteristics of the 144,000 will also be the characteristics of the great multitude.
First let me say that God has his sheep in the four corners of the earth, when he draws them they will come and settle in his truth. Some may come into the organized SDA Church and some may not but they will come into the truth being united in one belief.
Ecc 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter, Fear God, and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.
Second, The Word of God says in
Rev 7:3 Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of God in their forheads,
Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed, and they were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
John saw all this on the earth, so these people are people who is on the earth before Jesus comes.
Rev 7;9 After this I beheld and lo, a great multitude which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds and peoples and tongues, stood before the throne and before the lamb, clothed with white robes and palms in their hands.
This is the great multitude where is John seeing them before the throne that is in heaven. These are the people who will raise from all ages.
