We already have all the spiritual revelation we would ever need:
“In the beginning was the Word, [the written Word, (Logos,) Jesus Christ, as revealed in the pages of the whole Bible,] and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men…” - Jn. 1:1-4.
‘Jesus is the [visible, completely and fully revealed] Image of the invisible God…’ - Col. 1:15.
‘In Him we have [complete] redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His GRACE,
[which means we can never earn salvation or blessing by keeping the Law, as Jesus did it all for us by taking our place on the cross!]
… having made known [or completely revealed] the mystery of His will [through the complete revelation of His Son, the Word, in]…
the dispensation of the fullness of the times [or the New Testament dispensation of grace...]’ - Eph. 1:7-10.
‘If indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God… how that by revelation [of His son, as expressed in Scripture,] He MADE KNOWN… the mystery, by which, when you read [the Scriptures,] you may understand my [Paul’s] knowledge in the mystery of Christ, which in other ages [or during the Old Testament dispensation] was not made known… as it has now been [completely] revealed by the Spirit…’ - Eph. 3:2-5.
‘For if the blood of bulls… [the ritual, Old Testament sacrifices,] sanctified [Old Israel,] how much more shall the blood of Christ, Who through the eternal Spirit, offered Himself WITHOUT SPOT to God, [for although He was completely human, He was entirely sinless and without a sinful nature,] cleanse our consciences from dead works, [or obedience to the ceremonial or ritual law of the Old Testament,] to serve the living God [in spirit and in truth, (Jn. 4:23-24.)] - Heb. 9:13-14.
‘For this reason He is the [Only] Mediator of the New [Testament] Covenant… the [complete] redemption of the transgressions under the first [Old Testament] covenant, that those who [heard and accepted God’s call to a New Testament life in Christ,]
May receive the promise of the ETERNAL INHERITANCE, [or heaven.] - Heb. 9:15.

AS MOST OTHER CHRISTIAN DENOMINATIONS, ADVENTISM WAS FOUNDED BY MASONS
Charles Taze Russell, main founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the counterpart of the SDA, said in June 1913 while lecturing at a masonic hall in San Francisco, “Although I have never been a mason… [Later he confessed masonic affiliations.] Something I do seem to do the same as masons do, I don’t know what it is; but they often give me all kind of grips and I give them back, then I tell them I don’t know anything about it except just a few grips that have come to me naturally!” [They all really had a good laugh afterward, I’m sure!] Although Jehovah’s refute this hysterically, the masonic/Illuminati pyramid near his grave (below) proves the fact that Russell belonged to some masonic order. [Pyramids and obelisks or towers are inherent symbols of masonic orders and signify sun and phallic (sex) worship, which is actually the worship of the goat god Baphomet, the entity behind their masonic ‘G’ for god, the so-called ‘Great Architect of the Universe.’]

Above: Most, if not all, formal denominations were founded by freemasons and other masonic orders in their quest to institute the one-world religion of the Illuminati. Thus, masonic obelisks or towers (middle and right) also adorn both the graves of James and Ellen White. As with the pyramid near Russell’s grave, these obelisks provide irrefutable proof of these leaders’ secret allegiance to the goat god of the masonic lodge.
Even Adventists themselves described James and Ellen White’s obelisk tombstones as "unsettling", which is a huge understatement of the evil of masonry worldwide in both politics and religion! ‘Founder’ Ellen White pretended to hate masons, yet she continually used masonic language, i.e. "the vital force," "vital energies," [the word 'energy' is commonly used in occult circles to refer to 'spirit;’] “the holy watcher…” etcetera. [Follow the link and read all about White’s masonic terminology and teachings.] In addition, Ellen frequently spoke of 'Mother Earth,' who is in fact Sophia (and Shekinah,) the 'feminine holy spirit’ of occultism, especially of masonry and Roman Catholicism. Sophia or Mother Earth is actually the fertility goddess Semiramis of ancient Babylon. In the Roman Catholic Church, the fertility goddess or ‘holy spirit’ Sophia is worshipped as ‘Mother Mary.’ As someone remarked, “Occultists do not use Bible terms, how can 'Christians' [and Bible affiliated societies and churches] use masonic [and other occult] lingo?”
Martin Luther was a Rosicrucian mason and Reformer John Calvin, (whose Jewish or supposedly French name was Chauvin,) was set up by the Jewish Cabbalist Sanhedrin to found the Protestant Reformation through torture, murder and mayhem. Joseph Smith, the father of Mormonism was also a mason. All these hierarchical, ruling religionists were very bad men who conceived and executed most evil political/religious agendas.
Jesus Himself said that a bad tree (i.e. a tree with masonic roots and other false teachings) CANNOT bear good fruit. Hence, it comes as no surprise that Jehovah’s Witnesses, Adventists and Mormons share many incredibly false and dangerous doctrines. One of Adventism’s founding fathers, mason William Milner, (1782-1849,) first founded the Mellerite Movement on many masonic, and other strange teachings. Nathaniel D. Faulkhead was an active Adventist mason, [Adventistarchive.org.] Derek Morris sought spiritual advice from the Jesuits, (a militant masonic order within the Roman Catholic Church,) and the masonic teachings of Ignatius of Loyola, the ‘Black Pope.’ The SDA Pathfinders are divided into 'grades' or in masonic terms, 'degrees.' Just as the masonry founded, taught, and guided 'Boys Scouts,' their teachings and structure contain the essence of masonry. Isaac Newton was a Cabbalist Jew/Illuminist mason, yet the SDA reveres him as a prophet.

Above: Next to this photograph on p. 174 of ‘Codex Magica,’ Texe Marrs explained, “Neal Wilson, president of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, exchanges an indisputable masonic handshake with Konstantin Kharchev… The leadership of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is heavily masonic. Many SDA officials have cooperated with pro-Communist, anti-Christian lobby groups such as American United… and the Jewish ADL. These groups veil their anti-Christian positions with high-sounding goals like ‘liberty’ and ‘separation of church and state…’”
Ex-Adventist Sondra wrote, “I cannot find any Scriptural foundation for teaching that your choice of diet and level of health will affect your ability to be holy. The SDA church, from its very origins, has made this a monumental issue. Ellen G. White [claiming this as revelation received from God] presented this as a vital part of process of sanctification, without which your very soul could be in danger. The health message is the “right arm of the gospel,” [called “the health message,” “medical missionaries,” etcetera,] and this avenue is often used to gain proselytes, using health seminars as a way to get their foot in the front door of people’s acceptance… Eating “unclean meat” is very ‘bad.’ Adventists would rather commit sexual sin than to eat “unclean meat” such as bacon… [just as Jehovah’s Witnesses,] which would bring sickness, ceremonially uncleanness, and God’s displeasure…. Ellen G. White taught that ‘eating meat makes you prone to anger and lust. Those who eat meat are less serious in growing in God and only those who did not eat meat would be alive at the time of the return of Christ. The rest would die during the time of persecution preceding the [so-called] second coming.’”
So, according to the many incredibly false teachings, life, and death of White, she herself was definitely NOT ceremonially clean, holy, or acceptable to God, as she has been dead a long, long time and Christ still has not returned! All her alleged abstaining from foods, which God Himself had created and sanctified, could not help her escape the judgment of Christ after death for it is written, “It is appointed for ALL men to die ONCE and THEREAFTER the [eternal] judgment!” (1 Tim. 1:1-4; Heb. 9:27.)
Let the Contextual Truth of Jesus’ Word answer Ellen White’s ‘uncleanness and growing in God’
Jesus Christ Himself declared in Jn. 13:34, “A NEW COMMANDMENT I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you. By this all will know that you are My disciples.”
Therefore, under the New Testament covenant, Jesus’ only commandment is the inward Moral Law of Love for God and fellow man, as it encapsulates ALL the precepts of the Old Testament laws and prophecies.
Under the Old Testament Covenant, old Hebrew religion was mostly about outward ceremonies and pompous ritual. On the other hand, under the New Testament Covenant, everything became spiritual. (A spiritual priesthood, temple, altar, the Moral Law only, etcetera.) Hence, a New Testament relationship with God is all about the SCRIPTURAL rebirth or complete renewal of the ‘inward man,’ the human ‘heart’ or human spirit, (Ths. 5:2.) Then, the systematic renewal of the human mind, (soul) according to the truth of God’s contextual Word and in the power of the Holy Spirit must follow the rebirth, (Rom. 12:1-2.) The New Testament Covenant is radically different from the Old Testament Covenant. The Old Covenant of the Law was completely FULFILLED by Jesus in our place, thus it “was nailed to the cross” and have passed away! (Heb. 8:13 — chapters 7-9!) All true believers in Christ, who live(d) during the New Testament dispensation, live(d) under GRACE IN CHRIST and according to the Moral Law, not according to the many outward precepts of the Old Testament ceremonial temple law, (Gal. chapters 2 & 3; Rom. chapters 2 & 3 — and the whole New Testament in the context of all the books of the Bible.)
As a result, Jesus said in Mark 7:18-21, “...Whatever enters in man from outside cannot defile him,” because it does not enter his heart [human spirit] but his stomach and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods… “What comes out of a man that defiles a man. For from within, out of the [unsaved] heart proceed adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, lies… [all the transgressions of the inward Moral Law of Love.]”
Everything we choose to eat, (except the flesh of humans, which is cannibalism,) was already sanctified by the Word, (as God Himself has spoken blessing over it,) and our praying over it with thanksgiving! How dare White and her followers try to make unclean and unholy the food which God Himself has sanctified for us? Are they stronger and wiser and more almighty than He?
Paul commanded in 1 Cor. 10:25-33, “Eat whatever is sold in the meat market, asking no questions for conscience sake, for the earth is the Lord’s and all its fullness. Conscience, I say, not your own, but that of the other. For why is my liberty [in Christ] judged by another man’s conscience? But if I partake with thanks, why am I evil spoken of for the food over which I give thanks? Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
1 Cor. 8:8, “Food does not commend us to God…” Rom. Chapter 14, “For one believes that he may eat all things, (except humans of course,) but he who is weak [in his faith in Christ] eats only vegetables. [It is not a sin to be vegetarian if it is NOT done as a legalistic work that tries to gain merit with God!]” (Verse 17,) “For the Kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. [God’s New Testament Covenant in the blood of Christ is all about the inward ‘heart’ or human spirit first, 1 Ths. 5:23!] “For he who serves Christ in these things, [truth, love, and freedom from religious legalism,] are acceptable to God and approved by men.”
Abstaining from wine, coffee, and tea
Adventists abstain from drinking [and even touching] alcohol, tea, and coffee as Jehovah’s Witnesses did in the eighties, and many still do. Ellen White taught that “these substances are a sin as they are stimulants. As the body is the temple of God, everything harmful is a sin against the body.”
In reality, TRUE SIN that defiles the temple of the Holy Spirit, is everything contrary to the Moral Law of Love, such as lies, hatred, sexual immorality, the ABUSE of alcohol and drugs, and false teaching especially, not coffee, tea, or the moderate intake of wine, (read 1 Cor. 6:18-20.) Real scientific studies have shown that tea, coffee, and “a little” red wine in particular, contain antioxidants, and caffeine can actually be good for you in moderate amounts. Red wine in moderate amounts contains the powerful antioxidant resveratrol, extracted from the crushed pips and skin of red grapes, which inhibits high cholesterol and other diseases. Using a “little wine” as medicine, disinfectant, and a pain killer is not new. Paul told Timothy in 1 Tim. 5:23, “Use a little wine for your stomach and frequent illnesses..” Yet, (as the Charismatic/Pentecostal Movement,) White and her disciples make wine itself evil and unclean. Contrary to New Testament Scripture, they teach that people should not “touch, taste, or handle” that which God Himself had created and made clean, (1 Tim. 4:4-5.)
They turn wine itself (and in White’s case even coffee and tea) into sin, instead of teaching people not to SIN by drinking too much wine and other intoxicating substances.
God clearly forbade us in His New Testament to get drunk in any way and lose our self-control by whatever means! Yet, Jesus Himself made and drank wine, (and Scripture does not mean grape juice,) and thus wine itself can never be evil or unclean. However, the abuse of alcohol and other intoxicating substances, prescription drugs too, constitutes ‘debauchery,’ which allows all forms of wickedness to enter into the soul, spirit, and body of the drunkard and other drug addict — not only destroying his or her life, but also the lives of spouses, children, and family members.
Most importantly, the law of love should always govern our lives. For instance, if we know someone is an alcoholic, we should rather refrain form drinking a little wine for the sake of that person, although to born again believers, (not just an ‘elite class’ of so-called ‘born again’ believers as the Jehovah’s Witnesses teach, but Biblical disciples of Christ,) “all things are clean,” (Eph. 5:18; Rom. 14:14-15.)
Biblical Truth About Eating Pork
Under the Old Testament/Covenant’s ritual or ceremonial law, pigs especially, were classified as ‘unclean animals.’ This was not because God CREATED ANYTHING AS UNCLEAN! Everything God has made is ‘very good!’ (Gen. 1:31.) The ‘unclean’ animals such as pigs are actually a allegory or spiritual symbol, which was annulled under the spiritual, New Testament Covenant of Jesus. Pigs are different from other animals because they ‘do not chew the cud’ or re-chew their food as other animals with split hooves do. Thus, the purpose of physical Old Testament dietary laws forbidding the eating of pigs and other ‘unclean’ animals, was to set God’s Old Testament, physical nation Israel apart from the world’s pork-eating pagans or Gentiles - all the other nations that surrounded the Old Israelites, (Deut. 14:1-29.) All non-Hebrew nations are pagans or “Gentiles.” And so, Old Israel, God’s physical, Old Testament nation, was also forbidden to associate either physically or spiritually with “ceremonially” unclean ‘pigs’ or Gentiles.
However, in the New Testament dispensation, “God [proved that He] SO loved the WHOLE world, [all the people from every tribe, tongue and nation,] that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whoever [personally] believes in Him, (Jews and Gentiles alike,) shall not perish but have everlasting life,” (Jn. 3:16.) Under the New Testament Covenant, Christ died for ALL people, Jews and Gentiles alike. Everyone who sincerely accepts and follows Him as his or her personal God, Lord, and Savior, is His spiritually born again disciple, (Jn. 3:3-5.)
Accordingly, Paul explained in Col. 2:14-18 that Jesus, by fulfilling the entire Old Testament law and ALL its precepts in our place, “wiped out [all its outward, ceremonial, temple] requirements that were against us… [Jesus Himself] has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross… So, let no one judge you in food or in drink [not drunkenness]… which was [an Old Testament Covenant precept] and a shadow of things to come… Let no one cheat you of your reward [or of the grace in Christ,] taking delight in false humility and WORSHIP OF angels... [White said Jesus is the archangel Michael,] not holding fast to the Head [The Biblical Godhead of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit...] Therefore, if you died [spiritually] with Christ [to the old ceremonial or outward temple laws of Old Israel,] why do you subject yourself to bygone [Heb. 8:13] regulations such as ‘Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,’ which concern things which perish with the using according to the [useless] commandments and doctrines of men…”
The Adventists’ Clear Word Bible actually amplifies this very clear King James meaning, “Don’t let anyone control your life by giving you a set of ceremonial rules about what to eat, what to drink… [Yet, this is exactly what Adventism does to their members!] All these rules about ceremonial days [such as the physical Sabbath] were given as a shadow of the reality to come and that reality is Jesus…” How’s that for a forked tongue!
In Acts 10:9-28, Jesus Himself commanded the devout Hebrew, Peter, to eat all kinds of meat, for “what God has cleansed you must not call common or unclean!” The spiritual connotation to Jesus’ annulling of this physical, Old Testament regulation, (not to eat ‘unclean’ meat,) became a Devine revelation to the New Testament Peter who said, “It was unlawful for a Jew to keep company with a Gentile, [people from other nations.] But God has shown me that I should not call any man [too] common or unclean [to receive His grace under the New Testament Covenant.]”
God showed New Testament Hebrews that the ‘shadow’ or symbol of the regulation pertaining to Hebrew-Gentile relations, (symbolized by eating something ceremonially unclean such as pork,) was fulfilled at the cross. Therefore, it was completely done away with to make way for God’s spiritual, New Testament Covenant in the blood of Jesus Christ.
In Acts 10:9-28, God actually forbade all racism and cultural discrimination! Paul confirmed this in Gal. 3:28. Race, status, and gender do not make the person; a Godly, moral heart in Christ makes the person.
Fellowship with truly sinful Christians (spiritual pigs) and Dealing with the world without Christ were reversed. Believers should “not be deceived, because evil company corrupts good morals.” Fellowshipping with idolaters and other pagan witches from whichever nation, religion, or denomination, who deliberately distort God’s Word and unrepentantly violate His New Testament commandments, will pull us away from truth and holiness in Christ. Nevertheless, while not participating in sin or making the ‘world’ our spiritual and emotional friend, true believers should never view anyone so ‘ceremonially unclean,’ that they are unfriendly and unhelpful towards unbelievers and outsiders; neglecting to bring Gospel-salt and Gospel-light to this spiritually dark, yet religious world! For instance, to Muslims and devout Jews, (and to most Christians, and societies and organizations associated with Christianity,) those who do not belong to their religions or churches are as ceremonially unclean ‘pigs’ and ‘dogs.’ These so-called ‘sanctified’ and ‘holy’ people believe they are ‘cleansed’ by their church and other religious memberships, rituals, ceremonies, and sacraments, while “infidels” or “unbelievers” from other religions and even true believers in Christ, are “dirty.”
