BUT THE SCRIPTURES, WHILE FORETELLING THIS DREADFUL APOSTASY, ALSO PLAINLY TEACH THAT JUST BEFORE THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST, MANY WILL BE RESCUED FROM THE DARKNESS OF ERROR AND SUPERSTITION. ONCE MORE THE EARTH IS TO BE LIGHTENED BY THE GLORY OF GOD. THE PURE TRUTHS OF THE BIBLE ARE TO SHINE FORTH. AND IN THIS TIME OF HEAVENLY ILLUMINATION MARKING THE APPROACHING END OF THE AGE, THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT ARE AGAIN TO BE MANIFEST IN THE TRUE CHURCH.
"IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THE LAST DAYS, SAITH GOD, I WILL POUR OUT OF MY SPIRIT UPON ALL FLESH: AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS: AND ON MY SERVANTS AND ON MY HANDMAIDENS I WILL POUR OUT IN THOSE OF MY SPIRIT; AND THEY SHALL PROPHESY." ACTS 2:17, 18; JOEL 2:28, 29.
IN CLEAR TERMS THE PROPHET JOHN SPEAKS OF "THE REMNANT," OR THE LAST CHURCH, AS THOSE WHO "KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, AND HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST." REVELATION 12:17. IN ANOTHER PASSAGE THE SAME WRITER GIVES A PLAIN DEFINITION OF WHAT HE MEANS BY THE “TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST." WHEN ON ONE OCCASION JOHN ATTEMPTED TO WORSHIP THE ANGEL WHO APPEARED TO HIM IN VISION, THE ANGEL SAID:

"SEE THOU DO IT NOT: I AM THY FELLOW SERVANT, AND OF THY BRETHREN THAT HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS: WORSHIP GOD." REVELATION 19:10. UNDER SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES THE SAME ANGEL SAID, AS RECORDED IN ANOTHER PLACE: "SEE THOU DO IT NOT: FOR I AM THY FELLOW SERVANT, AND OF THY BRETHREN THE PROPHETS." REVELATION 22:9. THE THOUGHT EXPRESSED IS THE SAME IN BOTH THESE PASSAGES. IN ONE, HOWEVER, JOHN'S "BRETHREN" ARE SAID TO HAVE " TESTIMONY OF JESUS " IN THE OTHER THESE "BRETHREN" ARE CALLED "THE PROPHETS."

THEREFORE IT IS THE PROPHETS WHO HAVE "THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS;" AND THE ANGEL WHO APPEARED TO JOHN IS EVIDENTLY THE SPECIAL MESSENGER WHO CONVEYS INSTRUCTION TO ALL THE PROPHETS,--DOUBTLESS THE ANGEL GABRIEL, WHO IS MENTIONED AS HAVING APPEARED TO DANIEL. DANIEL 8:16; 9:21. THE SAME ANGEL FURTHER SAID TO JOHN, "THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS IS THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY." REVELATION 19:10.

COMPARING THE BIBLE EXPRESSION, "THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS," WITH THE STATEMENT OF REVELATION 12:17 CONCERNING THE "REMNANT . . . WHICH KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, AND HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST," WE CONCLUDE THAT PRIOR TO CHRIST'S SECOND COMING HIS TRUE CHURCH WILL BE KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS, AND THAT THEY WILL HAVE THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY.

THE RAPID FULFILLMENT OF THE PREDICTIONS OF HOLY SCRIPTURE REGARDING THE SIGNS AND EVENTS WHICH WERE TO MARK THE CLOSING SCENES OF EARTH'S HISTORY, IS A SURE EVIDENCE THAT WE ARE NOW LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS. HEREFORE A COMPANY OF CHRISTIAN PEOPLE WHO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD AND WHO HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST--THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY--SHOULD TODAY BE IN EXISTENCE. WHERE MAY THEY BE FOUND?

I am going to start with the 4th paragraph as this is the one that gives the details regarding those that believe we are in the remnant church today (the SDA church). The fact that Rev.12:17 shows those that keep the Commandments somewhere in the time of our World, we back up to see a couple verses prior, you can actually see a detailed study on Rev.12 in my blogs, that will make the further statement clear. Verse 15 says that the dragon cast a flood into the church, against the woman, that she may be taken of the flood, of course the woman isn't taken of the flood, but the dragon attempts to, through whom?! There are many that come into the church saying they want to receive Jesus, but God knows their hearts, they aren't receiving Him, they have come in with another agenda! Rev.17:15 tells us that the waters are people, therefore, that flood is a bunch of tares that want to influence the wheat with their garbage, they can't, but they try! So the fact is that the SDA church, having tares within it, isn't the remnant, the remnant is within it, they, the wheat, are the woman, so verse 16 gives the remedy! The Earth opens its' mouth and takes away the tares, just like the valley of Achor Hos.2:15 only this opening is symbolical of the tares being removed through God's appointed agencies Mat.13:30. So the fact that the tares are going to be removed, as in the days when Israel was coming out of Egypt, they were going to enter the Promised Land, this is the plan of God, the wheat are going to have the Land restored to them Is.2:2; Acts 3:21; Rev.11:15, then God is going to have His government of the 144,000 and those with them to gather in the great multitude Rev.7:9 into this Kingdom, to escape the Mark of the Beast. These will receive a heart of flesh and have the stony heart removed Ez.36:26-28, thus, keep the Commandments of God and be of one faith! Then the close of probation will happen and the 7 last plagues will fall Rev.16, then, lo and behold, Jesus will come in the clouds! Amen!

5th:
They aren't found in the, whole, of the SDA church as this church is filled with both wheat and tares! The remnant will keep the Commandments of God as they will not have a hard heart, which causes it to be impossible for any on Earth to keep the Commandments, except those that are perfect in Christ through His righteousness and even these still have the carnal nature so it's only His Perfection in them that they keep them in the Eyes of God!

Hear ye the Rod, the Word of God, which is the writings of the prophets, including Ellen White and Victor Houteff! Blessings!
Most use the part of the sentence that makes reference to the testimony of Jesus Christ, we know this is the SOP, no Adventist should deny this, the problem isn't with the testimony but with the Commandments! When one looks at the fact that the wheat and tares are growing together, in the SDA church, none of us judge another so it's not a matter of knowing who each is, but we should know, that not one of us is capable of keeping them due to the carnal nature, so the fact that Jesus is the Righteousness of the ones that are saved, those that say they have received Jesus but really haven't are what needs to be figured out.

Again, the fact that not one of us can keep them, it's only our faith in Jesus perfect life that commends us to God, therefore, the reason that some do keep the Commandments is because God looks at Jesus perfect life in these, so the fact that Jesus kept them, therefore, the saints do, in the Eyes of God, hence, there is no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus!

The reason that an SDA is saved, is not because they are keeping the Commandments, though this is what God sees the wheat do because Jesus lives in them, it's because of the Latter Rain Truth! The fact that we are in the last day church (SDA), we are to receive the Latter Rain Truth, this is what ripens the harvest of the church, the Early Rain has fallen, the grain must be ripened, and for certainty, the wheat, those that have received Jesus, will receive the Latter Rain because they are as children, willing to learn, for as such are of the Kingdom of God! The Latter Rain Truth, is the message of the Investigative Judgement of the Living! We already know the Judgment of the Dead message, now we know the cleansing of the sanctuary in Heaven! Now to understand the cleansing of the sanctuary on Earth, the SDA church! The living will see Jesus come in the clouds, they will therefore have received the Latter Rain Truth that they will be ripe for the harvest of our church Rev.14:14-16!
