THE SECOND ANGELS MESSAGE Does it apply to God's professed?

Come out of what? Babylon. This is the command of that God who will shortly give the kingdom to his Son, and cannot be disregarded without our being “partakers in her plagues.”
    I. What Is Babylon? The term Babylon  signifies...

Come Out Of Her My People


Come out of what? Babylon. This is the command of that God who will shortly give the kingdom to his Son, and cannot be disregarded without our being “partakers in her plagues.”

    I. What Is Babylon?

The term Babylon  signifies the same as Babel. i.e. “confusion” or “mixture.

     Under the Old Testament dispensation, Babylon was the principal power that oppressed the people of God. Hence, the term is employed in the New Testament, symbolically, to denote the principal agents that opposed the Church of God.

     Let us see how the true church comes into being, For example—we will suppose for the first time the Gospel is preached in any given city. Many are turned to the Lord. What is the result? They all come together “with one accord in one place.” What brings them together? Love. How long will they continue thus to meet together? Just as long as love remains unbroken. That loving, unbroken band of believers in any one place, city or town, I call the Church of God in that place; and is the visible church; no organization of human invention can make it more visible, or more really the Church of God. They are “of one heart and of one soul.” See Acts iv. 22. To that “Church the Lord added daily.” See Acts ii. 47. No man, nor body of men, has any power or authority to add to the Lord’s Church; God has never entrusted men with that power.

     A Church constituted as I have suggested is such a church as our Lord Jesus Christ prayed his church might be. See John xvii. 21, 22. “That they all may be ONE; as thou Father art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us—that they may be one, EVEN AS WE ARE ONE.”

     This then is the true Church of God. Now, what are the principal agents in oppressing and injuring this Church? We answer, all those sects, whether Roman Catholics or Protestants, that go to work to divide and bring in “confusion” to the oneness of the Church. And how is this done? It is done by the manufacturing of creeds, whether written or oral, and endeavoring to organize a party; the test of fellowship being now, not love to God and each other, but assent to these creeds. The work of dividing or bringing in “confusion” into the true Church, now begins. Each sect has its agents—These surround the loving, united body of happy converts, who are all one, and the cry begins—“You must unite with somevisible church” To his moment the loving converts did not dream but that “the Lord had “added” them to his church; and they were happily with one soul going on in service of the Lord. But a new sound has now saluted their ears. And what do they hear? The voice of union? No. A discordant sound salutes them. “We are right—all the rest are wrong—go with us”—cries each of these dividing agents. The first thought the loving, united church has, is, “We must all go together—we cannot be divided.” But the various agents continue their operations, day and night, “from house to house,” not to save souls, but to get them into “OUR CHRUCH.”

     At length some of the converts begin to incline one way, and some another; now the division or “confusion” commences, and it goes on till they are all gathered into the different sects. Now look for the loving church of God; where is it? All in “confusion”—rent and torn into as many parties as there are agents of sects to carry on the Babylonish work. Instead of the Church of God, a loving, united, brotherly body, delighting to meet with each other, you now have Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, &c. &c., down to the end of the lists of divisions; and the so called churches are each making war on the other, not because they do not live as holy as themselves, but because their creeds differ; and hence “confusion” or Babylon is truly their name.

     Now I should like to see one of these man—made organizations, the leading agencies of which are not opposed to the idea of the Lord Jesus Christ’s Second Advent; “at the door”—and which does not manifest hostility to that idea. Which of them, at this moment, are not saying “I sit as a queen!” and which of them are not pleasing themselves with the idea, that someday they are to effect the conquest of the world, and that it is to be subjected to their faith? Which of them will suffer a soul to remain among them in peace, that openly and fearlessly avows his faith in the Advent at the door?  Are not the terms of remaining among them undisturbed, that you “wholly refrain” from a public expression of faith in the coming of the Lord this year, whatever your convictions may be on the subject! And however important you may feel it to be to cry, “Fear God and give glory to him for THE HOUR OF HIS JUDGMENT IS COME.”

     Surely we need have no great difficulty in deciding where Babylon is, or what it is. It is the old mother and all her children; who are known by the family likeness a domineering, lordly spirit, a spirit to suppress a free search after truth, and a free expression of our conviction of what is truth.

   II. Why Come Out!

     “Every one of us shall give account of HIMSELF to God,” (Rom. Xiv. 13.) We have no right to let any men, or body of men, thus lord it over us. And to remain, it appears to me, in such an organized body, is to remain in Babylon.

     Babylon has become great and strong; and in her own estimation, she is “rich, and increased with goods,” and “has need of nothing;” but she is ignorant of the fact that she is “wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked,” while Christ standeth “at the door;” and she refuseth to hear a word of his coming “in;” and like “Diotrephes,” 3 John 10, she is “prating against” those, who talk of the coming of Christ, “with malicious words; and not content therewith, neither doth” she herself “receive the brethren, and forbideth them that would; and casteth them out of the church,” so far as is in her power.

     “Well,” say some, “if they will turn us out, let them do it; we will stay with them until we are turned out.—But, does God say, stay in here till you are turned out! NO. He says—“Come out of her my people.” Come out of this “confusion,” this Babylon.

     Babylon is to fall—to fall to rise no more. The day of her fall is nigh, even at the door. Though in the order of the record, her fall (Rev. xviii. 2, 4) is before the call to come out of her, yet I think, as a matter of fact, it is after.

     That it is so I think we shall be convinced by turning to Jer. 51: 42 to 45.

  “The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof. Her cities are a desolation, a dry land, and a wilderness, a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass thereby. And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall. My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD.”

     Thus it will be seen that although Babylon is represented as if already overwhelmed by the sea, and her cities desolate, yet the command to go out of her is after. Here I think, it is clear, that is spoken of which is to befall Babylon as though it were past, while in fact it was future. So in the 18th of Rev. 2nd verse, the future fall of mystical Babylon is spoken of as if already past, because of the certainly of the event, and the cry indicates the time when God’s people are to com out of her; and if they do not heed it they may expect to be partakers of her plagues; those plagues are set forth in the 14th chap. 9th to 11th verses.

     “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

     And more fully described in chap. 16: 1 to 11.

     “And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea. And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments. And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.”

     These are judgments, I apprehend, which are to fall on Babylon; and if the people of God do not intend to “be partakers of her sins, and receive of her plagues,” let them hast to flee out of her, yea, if you have any hope of escaping the “Second Death.” Make no tarring in all the plain.

     But it will be asked, “Where shall we go if we come out?” Go to the Lord. Trust in Him. “Wait for his Son from heaven.” Take care that you do not seek to manufacture another church. No church can be organized by man’s invention but what it becomes Babylon moment it is organized. The Lord organizes his own church by the strong bonds of love. Stronger bonds than that cannot be made; and when such bonds will not hold together the professed followers, and drop off from the body as a matter of course.

     The human machinery, called churches, blinds together the dead with the living; and when the living head (Christ) is announced as at the door, ‘his body is convulsed, the living cannot but rejoice, when they understand the subject; but the dead writhe in agony at the thought. Take heed then, living souls, that you are not crushed by Babylon—by the “confusion” and death that is around you in the modern “Babels.”

“Come out of her my people.”

Can WE KNOW GOD? Or will He always be a "mystery" to us? See Rev 17:5 for the name of the false God that is put upon the foreheads of Babylonians. 

Revelation 17:5

King James Version (KJV)

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

St. Jerome says, in a well-known phrase: "The true profession of the mystery of the Trinity is to own that we do not comprehend it" (De mysterio Trinitatus recta confessio est ignoratio scientiae — "Proem ad 1. xviii in Isai.").

"The plain straight testimony must live in the church, or the curse of God will rest upon His people as surely as it did upon ancient Israel because of their sins. God holds His people, as a body [corporately], responsible for the sins existing in individuals among them." Testimonies, Vol. 3, p. 269.

"While no single scriptural passage states formally the doctrine of the Trinity, it is assumed as a fact by Bible writers and mentioned several times. Only by faith can we accept the existence of the Trinity." Adventist Review, Vol. 158, No. 31, p. 4. Our pioneers did not believe God was a three in one, one in three God.  They believed he was a personal spiritual being.

Does the General Conference body of believers believe that the foundation of our faith included a correct understanding of who God is? [EW77]

The general conference tells us that they do not believe that the foundation included a correct understanding of who he is.

“Most of the founders of Seventh-day Adventism would not be able to join the church today if they had to subscribe to the denomination’s Fundamental Beliefs. More specifically, most would not be able to agree to belief number 2, which deals with the doctrine of the trinity.” - Ministry, October 1993, p. 10.
“Adventist beliefs have changed over the years under the impact of ‘present truth.’ Most startling is the teaching regarding Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord… the Trinitarian understanding of God, now part of our fundamental beliefs, was not generally held by the early Adventists. Even today a few do not subscribe to it.” (Adventist Review, Jan. 6, 1994 p.10)

“I entreat every one to be clear and firm regarding the certain truths that we have heard and received and advocated. The statements of God's Word are plain. Plant your feet firmly on the platform of eternal truth. Reject every phase of error, even though it be covered with a semblance of reality, which denies the personality of God and of Christ.” {RH, August 31, 1905 par. 11}
“In the book Living Temple there is presented the alpha of deadly heresies. The omega will follow, and will be received by those who are not willing to heed the warning God has given.” (Selected Messages bk.1, page 200)

The Omega will be of a most startling nature.” (Series B, no. 2, page 16) “The omega will follow, and will be received by those who are not willing to heed the warning God has given.” “I knew that the omega would follow in a little while; and I trembled for our people.” (Series B, no. 2, pp. 50, 53)
The current Adventist Trinities (there are many but they speak with one voice in this context) are a master piece of satanic genius to suck us down the path of eastern mysticism and into the arms of the promised omega.

"As world church president, Neal Wilson was responsible for... the adoption of a revised statement of  the church’s “Fundamental Beliefs”  by delegates to the denomination’s world session in 1980,...  WORLD CHURCH LEADER: Pastor Neal C. Wilson, a former president of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the father of current G.C. president Pastor Ted N.C. Wilson, passed to his rest on December 14, 2010 at an assisted living facility in Dayton, Maryland. He was 90 years old."

“Some will tend to resist this doctrine (the trinity) because it is not found expressly stated in the scriptures.” Adventist Review Aug 20 1993 P-8

1 Corinthians 14:33
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

Proverbs 3:5-6 
God will direct our paths if we trust in him. Proverbs tells us that He will make those paths straight if we acknowledge Him in all our ways.

For the true God - what does the Bible say about KNOWING and UNDERSTANDING Him?

John 17:3

King James Version (KJV)

And this is life eternal, that they might KNOW thee the only true God,and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

"He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath BOTH the Father and the Son." 2 John 1:9  

If the Holy Spirit was a third person - don't you think it would say three here? he hath all three? the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit persons? It says BOTH. I believe the Bible, don't you? God's Word is a plain path to our feet. Now I do believe there is a "Holy" Spirit - it say God is a Spirit and HE is Holy. God sends us His own Divine Influences - the vital PRESENCE and POWER of HIMSELF = the fruits of the Spirit will be manifest IN us - IF we are of Him.   John 5:4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.  1 John 4:6 We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.  You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.  

Job 27:3
All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils; 

2 John 1:9 Amplified Bible (AMP) "Anyone who runs on ahead [of God] and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ [who is not content with what He taught] does not have God; but he who continues to live in the doctrine (teaching) of Christ [does have God], he has 
both the Father and the Son."

Sounds pretty important to me. It is LIFE ETERNAL that we UNDERSTAND AND KNOW BOTH the ONLY TRUE GOD AND His SON, Jesus Christ =THE Word of God.

Jeremiah 9:24
But let him that glorieth glory in thisthat he understandeth and knoweth methat I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

1 John 5:20
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understandingthat we may know him that is trueand we arein him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true Godand eternal life.

Proverbs 30:4 is answered by Revelation 19:13:

Proverbs 30:4

King James Version (KJV)

Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?

Revelation 19:13

King James Version (KJV)

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood (crucified & died in our place): and his name is called The Word of God.


I pray "that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: Ephesians 1:17

“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!” —John 14:12-14

Authority on Earth. For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. (Mark 13: 34)
“They that forsake the law praise the wicked.” Proverbs 28:4. When those who are uniting with the world, yet claiming great purity, plead for union with those who have ever been the opposers of the cause of truth, we should fear and shun them as decidedly as did Nehemiah. Such counsel is prompted by the enemy of all good. It is the speech of timeservers, and should be resisted as resolutely today as then. Whatever influence would tend to unsettle the faith of God’s people in His guiding power, should be steadfastly withstood.

In Nehemiah’s firm devotion to the work of God, and his equally firm reliance on God, lay the reason of the failure of his enemies to draw him into their power. 

The soul that is indolent falls an easy prey to temptation; but in the life that has a noble aim, an absorbing purpose, evil finds little foothold. The faith of him who is constantly advancing does not weaken; for above, beneath, beyond, he recognizes Infinite Love, working out all things to accomplish His good purpose. God’s true servants work with a determination that will not fail because the throne of grace is their constant dependence.

God has provided divine assistance for all the emergencies to which our human resources are unequal. He gives the Holy Spirit to help in every strait, to strengthen our hope and assurance, to illuminate our minds and purify our hearts. He provides opportunities and opens channels of working. If His people are watching the indications of His providence, and are ready to co-operate with Him, they will see mighty results." --{Prophets and Kings, Page 660}
Ecclesiastes 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."

Genesis 41:38
And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this isa man in whom the Spirit of God is?

  1. John 4:24
    God is a Spiritand they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (Who is truth? Jesus! I am the way THE TRUTH...thy LAW IS TRUTH =the ten commandments embody both the Father and the Son's Character - so if we want to be like them BOTH - we must have their Spirit IN us for it says WE will make OUR abode with thee...  John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode with him. )
    John 4:23-25 (in Context) John 4 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations
  2. Revelation 19:10
    And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
"I saw that since the second angel proclaimed the fall of the churches, they have been growing more and more corrupt. They bear the name of being Christ’s followers (General Conference of Seventh Day Adventists); yet it is impossible to distinguish them from the worldMinisters take their texts from the Word of God, but preach smooth things. To this the natural heart feels no objection. It is only the spirit and power of the truth and the salvation of Christ that are hateful to the carnal heart. There is nothing in the popular ministry that stirs the wrath of Satan, makes the sinner tremble, or applies to the heart and conscience the fearful realities of a judgment soon to come. Wicked men are generally pleased with a form of piety without true godliness, and they will aid and support such a religion." EARLY WRITINGS, PAGE 273

"The sayings and doings of men are dwelt upon instead of the plain, cutting truths of the Word of God. The spirit and friendship of the world are at enmity with God. When the truth in its simplicity and strength, as it is in Jesus, is brought to bear against the spirit of the world, it at once awakens the spirit of persecution. Very many who profess to be Christians have not known God. The natural heart has not been changed, and the carnal mind remains at enmity with God. They are Satan’s faithful servants, notwithstanding they have assumed another name.”

I saw that since Jesus left the holy place of the heavenly sanctuary and entered within the second veil, the churches have been filling up with every unclean and hateful bird. I saw great iniquity and vileness in the churches; yet their members profess to be Christians. Their profession, their prayers, and their exhortations are an abomination in the sight of God. Said the angel, “God will not dwell in their assemblies. Selfishness, fraud, and deceit are practiced by them without the reprovings of conscience. And over all these evil traits they throw the cloak of religion.” I was shown the pride of the nominal churches. God is not in their thoughts; their carnal minds dwell upon themselves; they decorate their poor mortal bodies, and then look upon themselves with satisfaction and pleasure. Jesus and the angels look upon them in anger. Said the angel, “Their sins and pride have reached unto heaven. Their portion is prepared. Justice and judgment have slumbered long, but will soon awake. Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.” The fearful threatenings of the third angel are to be realized, and all the wicked are to drink of the wrath of God. An innumerable host of evil angels are spreading over the whole land and crowding the churches. These agents of Satan look upon the religious bodies with exultation, for the cloak of religion covers the greatest crime and iniquity.

The spiritual state of the Laodicean church was 'neither cold nor hot...wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked' Therefore Jesus says, ‘I will spue thee out of my mouth' {Rev. 3:15-17}. This shows that the church this represents will cease to be in the Body of Christ or Christ Himself. 

 Not only is Laodicea spewed out, but it has become the synagogue of Satan; therefore, God does not recognize Laodicea as a professed Christian church when Jesus comes. "And thou, Capernaum [Seventh-day Adventists, who have had great light], which art exalted unto heaven [in point of privilege], SHALL BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL…”  --{Review and Herald, vol 3, p 69-70, August 1, 1893, [Brackets by Ellen White]} In these words of denunciation a solemn warning is given TO THE CHURCHES OF TODAY “How is the faithful city (SDA church) become an harlot.” How have those who have had every opportunity to know the truth become defiled with the corruptions of the ungodly.” –{RH August 1, 1899, Art. A, par. 6}

“My people have been lost sheep: their shepherds {church leaders} have caused them to go astray...they have forgotten their resting place {in God alone}....Remove out of the midst of Babylon...Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity....My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord.” –{Jeremiah 50:6, 8, 51:6, 45.}

 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." Ephesians 5:11.

 "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.

 "Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord." Isaiah 52:11

 In AMAZEMENT they hear the testimony that Babylon is the church, fallen because of her errors and sins, because of her rejection of the truth sent to her from Heaven." –{Ellen G. White, in Spirit of Prophecy, vol 4, p 424 or Great Controversy, p 606-607}.

I have been thinking of a subject I would like to speak about, namely
"Adventists, Jesuits, and Spiritual Formation." It will highlight how the corporate SDA
church finds itself in a deadly embrace by the Jesuits. At Andrews Univ. all religion
and theology students must study the principles of Ignatius Loyola, the founder of
the Jesuits, the armed order of Rome. It involves mantra, incantations, learning from
the Catholic mystics like Loyola, Teresa of Avila, Hindu and Buddhist prayers... Why?
I am asking you, why? It was imposed by an international SDA committee in 2001
of which Ted Wilson, now GC president,
was a member. All 13 SDA church divisions
and schools must participate in this Jesuit-inspired plot. 

"Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free." John 8:32 

"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." John 4:23-24. 

"Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein." Jeremiah 6:16.

The SDA church has replaced their foundational teachings of the person of Jesus Christ and the Godhead with a tritheistic version of the Roman Catholic doctrine of the pagan origin Trinity gods.

Thus seeds of heresy, springing up and growing rapidly into strong plants, are surrounded by many precious plants of truth, and in this way a mighty effort is made to vindicate the genuineness of the spurious plants." EGW--Letter 136, 1906, pp. 3, 4. (To Brethren Butler, Daniells, and Irwin, April 27, 1906.) {5MR 154.1}

The Question to be asked is not "Who Says it"; but rather--"Is It True?" If you decide to judge truth by whether the 'Official' leadership agree with it and teaches it--you WILL end up like the Jews of Jesus' day--Crucifying the Very Message that could have saved them--following their leaders right into perdition!!

"Let not the days pass by and precious opportunities be lost of seeking the Lord with all the heart and mind and soul. If we accept not the truth in the love of it, we may be among the number who will see the miracles wrought by Satan in these last days, and believe them."-Letter 136, April 27, 1906, to Brethren Butler, Daniells, and Irwin.
