It was either on September 28, or 29 (2014) I was between sleep and wake when I heard a voice say, ".Redva you need a dress reform" Although semiconscious, it grabbed my attention. Again I heard, "Redva you need a dress reform and the church needs one too so tell the church."
Immediately I got up and sent a text message to the church Personal Ministry Director who had asked me earlier to do the 10 minutes after Sabbath School the coming Sabbath morning and I was undecided because I was not feeling well, that I was now willing and ready to do the evangelistic charge as I have a special message to deliver.
During the night I was on the internet browsing, reading and watching sermons and lo and behold there was a pastor preaching: Topic- "The need for dress reform in the Adventist church." This came as a conformation to the vision I had earlier and so my resolve was strengthened to do dress reform for the 10 minutes session that Sabbath morning. This I did without fear or favour. It was well received by the shouts of amen.
Since that vision I have changed much in my mood of dress.
Some years ago I was talking to a church sister about dress and she said she hear it said that Adventist women do not wear jewelry but the shoes and hair styles and the extravagance in their dress make up for the jewelry. As I look around the church today we cannot differentiate the dress on Sabbath and the dress of the world.
The short and tight dresses with all kinds of cuts and styles. The sleeveless dresses, the big and extra high heel shoes are all there. The hair colour and styles, the painted faces and nails, the extended finger nails and eye lashes and even the bleach skin in some cases.
For the men, the hair cut and the tight fitting pants which show all the bulges.
Brethren these must go, they are an abomination unto the Lord. Go to the Spirit of God and ask how you must dress and you will be told to do all to the glory of God. If when you are dressed and you are not comfortable that the Spirit will walk with you, then, change your dress.
If you still have a challenge and like your worldly dress it means that you need a heart transformation so go to the foot of the cross.
Romans 12:1& 2 (KJV)
12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Read also Romans 13:11-14 and wake up.
Remind me of the reference Jason.
Read selected messages book 1 pages 31-36 she states she does not claim to be a prophet. Now you are calling Mrs. White a liar
Let us not forget that the Bible (Law) made reference to the testimony (SOP).
Are you saying that the bible makes reference to Ellen White?
I didn't see Ellen Whites name mentioned in the baptismal vows. Was that an oversight?
No oversight, believe it or not an adventist is not required to believe in Ellen G. White to be baptized.
Careful, Leon, you may be called a liar for that statement.
Hopefully they will investigate before they call me a liar.
One could say that there are inferences which lean towards the SOP in the statements. But, even us Adventist realize the belief in Christ and being born again in the Spirit are the only requirements for conversion.
Is 28 Fundamentals of no importance?
I see. So, can I safely assume you are more of a fan of Sister Elizabeth Barton?
