144.000

  • “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.“ {Revelation 14:1}

Ellen White wrote that God announced to her that, in addition to the fact that we already know that Sunday is the mark of the beast, before the very end it will show us all other directions of worshiping the beast and the enemy that we have not yet understood. When we look at the world around us, and to what point the Pope and America have reached, it becomes quite clear that we are just before the second coming of Christ. 

We also know that after the end of the time of grace, without Jesus’ intercession in the Most Holy Place, even the smallest sin will lead to eternal death. The basic precondition for salvation is, in addition to the newborn character, the deepest communion with the Savior and the complete truth about Who and how we celebrate.

  • “Every one who by faith obeys God’s commandments, will reach the condition of sinlessness in which Adam lived before his transgression.” {Ellen White: ST, 23. July 1902}
  • “These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.“ {Revelation 14:4}

Among the other things, in this verse, we see once again that in the Bible the name one God means only the Father, but never the Trinity. One woman symbolizes the church, and the virgins did not defile themselves with any false teaching of those fallen churches or ecumenical approach to them. 

As many adherents of the Trinity realized that this proved that the ancient Adventists after Revelation were in the complete truth of all pillars since Jesus was about to come, claims began that even at the end of the time of grace and virginity 144.000 symbols and that trouble will hit only people who have not chosen God, so that we retain grace until the very end and thus indirectly we can continue to sin and not have the complete truth.What does the Spirit of Prophecy say about the great multitude of Revelation?

  • “He enters into the presence of His Father. He points to His wounded head, the pierced side, the marred feet; He lifts His hands, bearing the print of nails. He points to the tokens of His triumph; He presents to God the wave sheaf, those raised with Him as representatives of that great multitude who shall come forth from the grave at His second coming.” {Ellen White: DA, p. 834.2} 

Of all the people who will be saved, only the saints, i.e. 144.000 will be alive after the end of the time of grace, which is also literal.

  • “An angel with a writer’s inkhorn by his side returned from the earth and reported to Jesus that his work was done, and the SAINTS were numbered and sealed. Then I saw Jesus, who had been ministering before the ark containing the ten commandments, throw down the censer. He raised His hands, and with a loud voice said, “It is done.” And all the angelic host laid off their crowns as Jesus made the solemn declaration, “He i.e. unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he i.e. righteous, let him be righteous still: and he i.e. holy, let him be holy still.” [..] In that fearful time, after the close of Jesus’ mediation, the saints were living in the sight of a Holy God without an Intercessor.” {Ellen White: EW, p. 279.2}

Will the great multitude have a Mediator at the same time if they also receive Jesus alive? Jesus leaves the heavenly temple regardless of which group he belongs to!

  • “I saw the saints leaving the cities and villages, and associating together in companies, and living in the most solitary places. Angels provided them food and water, while the wicked were suffering from hunger and thirst.“ {Ellen White: EW, 282.2 } 

After the end of the time of grace, the saved will have to have absolutely the whole truth, to be ready in time without Jesus’ intercession in the holiest of holies. The preconditions for living without sin through the power of God include complete truth so that the enemy loses all-access, and we keep the first commandment and pray to the true God. After the end of the time of grace, it will not be possible to belong to the number 144,000 without keeping each of the Ten Commandments. Those who belong to the saints, i.e. 144.000 must be in such a state that Satan cannot tempt them. As Jesus stated:

  • “Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.” {John 14:30}

Since Satan established extended apostasy soon after Ellen White’s death, it became almost impossible to gather such a huge number of believers compared to just 8 saved before the flood, since even the faithful Adventists were led away from the complete truth. In an attempt to silence the conscience, it is claimed that such a small number is only symbolic, although Jesus, on the other hand, clearly raises the question of whether He will ever find a faithful person who is waiting for Him.

  • “I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” {Luke 18:8}

Today’s theologians claim that Jesus took the nature of Adam before the fall into sin and that because of today’s degeneration, we could not overcome sin even through the deepest communion with God, so the end of the time of grace is only symbolic. 

This is a direct attack on God’s omnipotence as if He is dependent on how degenerate we are to perform a miracle. Jesus announced to us that such people would preach as their ears itched so that unrepentant believers could continue to enjoy sin without a bad conscience because the fight against sin is meaningless anyway (similar to the Methodists and their science of fortune-telling). we will surely be saved. 

As an additional argument that we are too weak today to fight against sin, the claim that Jesus had the nature of Adam before he fell into sin helps. If that were true, His height would be the same as Adam’s – over 3.5 meters.This false doctrine was introduced by Dr. LeRoy Froom in 1957 through his book “Questions on Doctrine” and provoked strong resistance in the church at the beginning, similar to the earlier introduction of the Trinity. By His life, Jesus showed us that He, although in a weakened body, through deep communion with His Father, lived His whole life without the slightest sin. 

That is the condition of 144.000 after the end of the time of grace, who, despite a weak body supported by the power of the Holy Spirit, will gain the strength not to commit any sin. He showed us already in the Old Testament that Enoch achieved this state before his ascension. 

His change was the announcement of the life of the last Generation, which leaves us no possibility of excuse, because here we see that we too will be guided by the power of God, to reach the same immaculate state before the coming of Jesus. God’s prophet writes clearly that 144,000 is indeed a literal number

  • “The living saints, 144.000 in NUMBER“ {EGW: EW, p. 14.1}
  • “And I heard the number of them which were sealed.“ {Revelation 7:4}

John also emphasized that it is a literal number, i.e. why he says: “I heard” and not only that there is a number, but that this small number is also literally understood. If this number were only within the framework of symbolism, then he would never describe it with the term “number”, but as living saints 144.000. 

Why is this associated with great apostasy and especially with Adventists? Because such a small number of such a large crowd cannot be gathered in the last generation, this is also the reason why Jesus postponed his coming from the time of Ellen White. 

The share of the last generation in this number becomes even smaller because according to the Early Writings, this number includes especially faithful pioneers after 1844, who will completely fill that number of 144.000 through partial resurrection. 

She wrote that God had shown her that Sister Hastings belonged to the number 144.000, as well as herself if she remained faithful. Such people will be raised by a partial resurrection to receive the Savior alive. Ellen White clearly describes the partial resurrection before the coming of Jesus:

  • “I saw that she was sealed and would come up at the voice of God and stand upon the earth, and would be with the 144.000.” {Ellen White: 2SM p. 263.3} 
  • “Then the angel said, “You must go back, and if you are faithful, you, with the 144.000, shall have the privilege of visiting all the worlds and viewing the handiwork of God.” {Ellen White: EW, p. 39.3}
  • “There was a mighty earthquake. The graves were opened, and those who had died in faith under the third angel’s message, keeping the Sabbath, came forth from their dusty beds, glorified, to hear the covenant of peace that God was to make with those who had kept His law.” {Ellen White: EW, p. 285.1} 

Those who will receive Jesus alive are certainly not a large crowd, because they were in the graves during the tribulation.That’s just literally 144.000. That is why only 144.000 will be the only ones in life after the end of the time of grace to hear God’s voice, which the Spirit of Prophecy clearly confirms:

  • “About four months since, I had a vision of events, all in the future. And I saw thetime of trouble, such as never was,—Jesus told me it was the time of Jacob’s trouble, and that we should be delivered out of it by the voice of God. Just before we entered it, we all received the seal of the living God. Then I saw the four Angels cease to hold the four winds. And I saw famine, pestilence and sword, nation rose against nation, and the whole world was in confusion. Then we cried to God for deliverance day and night till we began to hear the bells on Jesus’ garment. And I saw Jesus rise up in the Holiest, and as he came out we heard the tinkling of bells, and knew our High Priest was coming out. Then we heard the voice of God which shook the heavens and earth, and gave the 144.000 the day and hour of Jesus’ coming. Then the saints were free, united and full of the glory of God, for he had turned their captivity. And I saw a flaming cloud come where Jesus stood and he laid off his priestly garment and put on his kingly robe, took his place on the cloud which carried him to the east where it first appeared to the saints on earth, a small black cloud, which was the sign of the Son of Man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the east which took a number of days, the Synagogue of Satan worshiped at the saints feet.“ {Ellen White: DS, March 14, 1846, par. 2} 

According to Revelation, 144.000 are completely sealed with the seal of the living God. This seal does not only signify the Sabbath, but we see that Ellen White has unequivocally shown that not all Adventists who hold the truth, including the Sabbath as the Lord’s Day, will receive the seal of God, although many will receive eternal life. We know that the sealed people after the end of the time of grace will be without false teaching and any sin. This certainly does not apply to secondary points that do not change the truth, such as what time does Saturday starts, etc. 

This is exclusively a question of who is worshiped and how is it worshiped. The first commandment says that only the True God can and should be worshiped. To be able to worship the true God in full and in the right way, we must have a complete truth. The word “blasphemy” also means worshiping a false God. That is why the Jews attributed Jesus to blaspheme God because He unequivocally showed them that He was the Son of God, which they did not want to admit. That is why the truth from the 10 commandments with the Sabbath is of key importance and means the seal of God. 

On the other hand, we can understand even more deeply what the Pope meant when he said that the Trinity is the most important teaching of the Catholic Church that will unite all churches.Jesus says that no one can serve two Lords. And the Trinity with the ascension of the Holy Spirit into Deity is precisely that additional other Lord! In that sense, whether as an old Adventist or a new one, after learning the truth, the principle is accepted and held that no one can serve two Masters. God has sent us many proofs of truth, and we reject those existing parts of God’s religion and seek our own. 

Has God changed, after 1850, when he revealed in a vision that there is no Trinity? This shows once again that the Adventists already in 1888 had the complete truth which included the rejection of the Trinity. The only and last point (according to Ellen White), whose non-observance delayed the sealing and the coming of Jesus, is the rejection of the truth about receiving salvation through faith. This means, on the other hand, that the true God should be worshiped in the right way so that God’s people needed only the last depth in full understanding. 

The number of today’s Adventists, with unfortunately a majority who rejected the whole truth, has been further reduced by 144.000, which is shown by the fact that many people from Babylon have accepted the truth. This means that almost none of the thousands of believers of today’s generation will be saved after the time of grace, since Ellen White wrote in the early church of correct doctrines that hardly one in twenty Adventists will receive eternal life. 144.000 represent the firstborn, undefiled and pure, which Jesus presents to his Father before the beginning of the harvest.

  • “It is a solemn statement that I make to the church, that not one in twenty whose names are registered upon the church books are prepared to close their earthly history, and would be as verily without God and without hope in the world as the common sinner. They are professedly serving God, but they are more earnestly serving mammon.” {Ellen White: ChS, 41.1}

God will draw to sleep many who have Him in their hearts but do not have the fullness of truth so that after the time of grace they do not lose eternal life. Saved will also be those worldly people who lived only by conscience, without the opportunity to hear the truth, and did not even know about God the Father and Jesus, but did not worship other false gods. Ellen White says the same for those who keep Sunday, who have not had the opportunity to hear the truth but have lived in complete communion with God, to be saved. On the other hand, we see that 144.000 will carry complete innocence when the time of grace is over. We do not find in the scriptures that a great multitude could remain alive after the end of the time of grace, while the Bible clearly states that Jesus will resurrect a great multitude at His coming. 

I can only say that after deeper research it can be found that only 144.000 will receive Christ alive and that the great multitude in Revelation below describes the 144.000 on earth, described directly in heaven and has no connection even though standing together! The greater the chance for someone to find the true truth, the stricter the criterion for obtaining eternal life will be. The problem is that many are comforted that we do not necessarily have to belong to 144.000. This refers to the time before the end of grace. However, with such an attitude, we will lose everything, because i.e. how we relax without seeking the complete truth, and we do not change our life completely according to the will of God, which is what this setting leads to! I want to emphasize once again that many who live by conscience and BEFORE the end of the time of grace will go to rest and be saved.

  • “I will embrace every opportunity to work for those who are in the darkness of error, who have never heard the truth. I will attend meetings where I can talk with those who have never had the light to reject. It seems impossible for me to be understood by those who have the light but have not walked in it.” {Ellen White: Lt 139. 1900}

What is the difference between holding the Sunday and the Trinity?

Keeping the Sunday is primarily about seducing honest people and abusing their ignorance. Sunday decides only whether we pray to God in the wrong way that leads to the enemy and his false Sabbath, but not to which God we pray. At the Trinity, we make the decision Whom we worship within the first commandment! Most Christians have taken the words “in the name of the Father, the Son, and (Their) Holy Spirit” simply without further thought, but until recently they prayed only to the Father and Jesus. So they worshiped the true God. The same thing happened with Adventists.

When God raised His people in His church shortly before the end of time, so that the essential point of truth, “Whom we worship,” would be revealed and restored, the other side rose with an even stronger call to worship a false god. Therefore, it is quite logical that the whole world was divided over the coming of Jesus and the choice of the true and true God, and that this reached every area of ​​the last church of God. As part of the deepening apostasy, some suddenly began to pray directly to the Holy Spirit, which had never been taught in our church before. The other side seeks justification for this practice because the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead. Ellen White is explicit:

  • “…it is God (the Father), the only true and living God, to whom our worship and reverence are due. …Let the brightest example the world has yet seen be your example, rather than the greatest and most learned men of the age, who know not God, nor Jesus Christ whom he has sent. The Father and the Son ALONE are to be exalted.” {Ellen White: YI, July 7, 1898 par. 2} 

As a prophet of God, she described seeing the church collapse like a heap of dust during Sunday’s law, and when it seemed that none of God’s people were gone, only a few individuals began to rise. With the late rain, with the loud cry of the Holy Spirit, they led the rest of God’s people out of Babylon. In my understanding, i.e. the remnant of the number 144,000, which, along with those torn from Babylon, will be completely filled in the period just before the beginning of the seven plagues. 

Ellen White wrote that God showed her believers from early Adventism, who will also be part of the 144,000, and that in that number there are only those with complete truth after 1844, besides those who will welcome the Savior alive. Of course, this does not mean that many deceased faithful Adventists and faithful people from the world will not be among the saved, but that God will have the firstborn in 144,000, who follow Christ everywhere. When we see that in the time of the prophet Elijah, out of a few million Jews, only 7,000 remained faithful, we realize how huge the number is 144,000 who will reject every sin.

After the end of the time of grace, they will be able to live sinlessly as our Savior on earth. Just as there were 12 tribes in ancient Israel, and 12 apostles replaced them in spiritual Israel, so 144,000 will take over this role at the end of the world. 12 tribes are Christians! That is why Revelation, when there was only spiritual Israel and only 2 physical tribes, mentions 12 tribes, to symbolically confirm the same role that they will play in the last call to the whole world, before the end of the time of grace.

  • “James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.“ {James 1,1}

Despite such a clear truth, many believe that before the end of the world, Israel will rise again as a strong kingdom, because the Bible announced that many shoots will grow together again. But this refers to the fact that many in Judaism will accept Jesus and His salvation! This false science is spread by the other side, which has been working since Napoleon to rebuild the state of Israel, to divert attention from the role of the last real remnant in the world with the power of loud shouting. 

That axis of evil foresaw earthly Jerusalem as the capital of the “millennial peace”, which the other side promises as one of the last deceptions before Jesus’ true coming. Ellen White wrote, that Satan himself will come as a false Jesus and begin a kingdom of peace, in which those who love the truth will be persecuted until the coming of Jesus because they will be portrayed as those who brought trouble by their boycott of that kingdom and Sunday. 

From the pulpits in our country and other churches, we hear the other news that no one will be able to completely abandon sin, and that this innocence, like the number, is symbolic. It is claimed that during His sojourn on earth, Jesus could overcome sin with His divine power enveloped in a mortal body, unlike us who have only humanity.If we have any sin after the time of grace, it will mean that we have not taken salvation seriously. 

Jesus showed us that, as God in the human body, completely renouncing His power, He resisted EVERY sin by every power of the Father in every second of His life on sinful earth, spending most of the day in prayer. The Old Testament shows Enoch, who, through complete surrender to God and His power, gradually became sinless, and therefore taken alive to heaven. Ellen White clearly writes that this is the condition that the last living generation MUST have to have to survive the end of the time of grace!

  • “The more we contemplate eternal things, the more we shall reveal the merits of a Saviour’s sacrifice, the protection of his righteousness, the fulness of his wisdom, and His power to present us before the Father without spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing.” {Ellen White: YI; 30th November 1899} 
  • For three hundred years Enoch had been seeking purity of soul, that he might be in harmony with Heaven. For three centuries he had walked with God. Day by day he had longed for a closer union; nearer and nearer had grown the communion, until God took him to Himself. He had stood at the threshold of the eternal world, only a step between him and the land of the blest; and now the portals opened, the walk with God, so long pursued on earth, continued, and he passed through the gates of the Holy City—the first from among men to enter there. His loss was felt on earth. The voice that had been heard day after day in warning and instruction was missed. There were some, both of the righteous and the wicked, who had witnessed his departure; and hoping that he might have been conveyed to some one of his places of retirement, those who loved him made diligent search, as afterward the sons of the prophets searched for Elijah; but without avail. They reported that he was not, for God had taken him.“ {Ellen White: PP, p. 87.3} 

This topic strikes at the unclean conscience of those who justify themselves by looking at other Babylonized Adventists because everyone expects that almost all 20 million will be saved so that hundreds of millions from Babylon will join in with a loud shout! That is why we should not be surprised by incomprehensible moral apostasy, especially of young people. Oh, if that were the case, but Jesus clearly says, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth

Ellen White wrote after 1888 that Jesus would have already come if we had not failed and faith. How? Today’s deeper research and understanding of the Revelations to which we are called, together with the Bible, provides the answer. The promise of 144,000 as an indescribably large number of those who will welcome the Savior alive through the sufferings of Jacob before the resurrection of the faithful, numerous as the sea sand of all generations from 6,000 years of life on earth and sin, could not be fulfilled, and be taken to heaven with them! 

Today it is claimed that 144,000 are just a subgroup of a large number of the saved, who will all together welcome Jesus alive. One question is: How can all those after the END of the time of grace be able to receive Jesus alive when we know that after His departure from the Holy of Holies any form of the time of grace ends and that the slightest sin leads to eternal death, and only 144,000 be completely cleansed of the smallest sin! 

But i.e. also why an excuse is being sought, to silence the conscience with the thought that we will be able to make mistakes until the end. The text in Revelation is presented as an “argument” where the description of 144,000 and the great multitude stand one below the other. Let us now look at the description in Revelation 7 to see if this is indeed the case:

  • “And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.“ {Revelation 7,2-4}

Revelation after the description of 144.000 mentions a large group of the saved, which is described by today’s defenders of sin as a large group at the same time next to 144.000, arguing that this group represents the rest of the saved Adventists just before Jesus came.And those who did not overcome every sin, in addition to 144,000 who overcame every sin and therefore form a special group. 

But if we read the verses more carefully, we can see that this described group is already in heaven, and has no temporal or spatial connection with the 144.000, who are the only ones saved after the end of the time of grace present on earth in the last moments of history!

  • “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands.“ {Revelation 7,9}

The saddest thing is that even the official theology of the church puts 144.000 on earth and the great multitude in heaven in the same temporal and spatial connection, only to destroy the truth about 144.000, and the fact that only they will be a group of sinless saved after the end of the time of grace! But that will not help them at all, because then they will be lost! 

At His second coming, Jesus will sit at the right hand of the Father, the Ruler of the universe, to whom the throne belongs. And only Revelation confirms that the Father will also be present at the coming of Jesus because heaven will be 7 days in silence, i.e. prophetic half an hour, because all the inhabitants of heaven will come with Jesus in the clouds to take us with them.

  • “Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power (Father), and coming in the clouds of heaven.“ {Matthew 26,64}
  • “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.“ {Matthew 16,27}
  • “And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.“ {Revelation 8,1}

Of course, since this is the official coming of Jesus, to take His children, for whom He died, the Father will keep completely aside, because He will only follow His Son, to whom great honor and glory have been given for something so powerful He has done for us. !! On the other hand, there are quotations that at first glance seem to represent other directions, but the Spirit of Prophecy never contradicts the Bible:

  • “We are saved because God loves the purchase of the blood of Christ; and not only will He pardon the repentant sinner, not only will He permit him to enter heaven, but He, the Father of mercies, will wait at the very gates of heaven to welcome us, to give us an abundant entrance to the mansions of the blest.” {Ellen White: 7BC 950.7} 

The fact that the Father himself will open the door to us does not answer the question of whether he was with Jesus on the way to earth to take us but emphasizes that the Father is the supreme King of heaven. When we bring guests with the car, we are the first to get out of the car, to open the door for the guests at the door of the house, and show them a part of hospitality.Context summary Seal of the ONLY true LIVING God: What does the Bible tell us, Who is this God?

  • “And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the SON of the LIVING God. “ {Matthew 16,16}
  • “… to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven …“ {1 Thessalonians 1, 9.10}

What does the Spirit of Prophecy tell us about this?

  • “…it is God (the Father), the ONLY true and LIVING God, to whom our worship and reverence are due. …Let the brightest example the world has yet seen be your example, rather than the greatest and most learned men of the age, who know not God, nor Jesus Christ whom he has sent. The Father and the Son alone are to be exalted.” {Ellen White: YI, July 7, 1898 par. 2}

The seal of God the Father, Who Himself bears the name “the only living God,” belongs to God the Father. The seal shows the name and identity of the One to Whom we pray and Who is the Source of life in the whole universe! And Jesus, as His Son, at His heavenly birth received the same “absolute life in Himself,” possessed only by the Father and the Son, as the only two Divine Beings in the whole universe.

  • “And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.“ {Revelation 7, 2.3}

The Father, as the bearer of the Seal, also includes His Son Jesus, because His Son Jesus is the only way to Him and His seal! For that reason, there is a strong rejection that Jesus has always been the literal Son because on the other hand, there are attempts to prevent access to the seal of the only living God and eternal life at all costs!

  • “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.“ {Revelation 14,1}
  • “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.“ {John 14, 6}

According to the Catechism, the Trinity is the most important basic science and the only source of ALL the teachings of the Catholic Church. Whose representative is the Catholic Church? Does she, as the implementer of the mark of the beast, pray to the true God? Her God is the Trinity, with the mark of the beast opposite the seal of the true living God. For Satan to present himself as God, he first blasphemed the constellation Father and Son and exalted the Holy Spirit as God. 

Leading spiritualists write for themselves that “God” is the Holy Spirit of the Trinity personally Lucifer. For that reason, it is not surprising that in the next step, the Trinity is called one God from Troy. That one God of the Trinity is Satan’s personal desire to be himself. If we know that we receive the seal of the living God only through His Son Jesus and that Jesus himself also has a position on the Father’s seal, then logically the mark of the beast must have a concept as the opposite image in the mirror. 

At the top of it is Satan as the supreme beast of the serpent, who replaces the true God the Father through himself. The Pope and the Catholic Church are an alternative to Jesus as the One who writes the seal on our foreheads. The Pope, as a visible force, brings the seal of eternal death to all who have chosen a false God

  • .“And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.“ {Revelation 13, 2-5}

Keeping the Sabbath or Sunday represents only the external and visible consequences of the truth and the manifestation to which we pray. If we keep the Sabbath but pray to the false God of the Trinity, the Sabbath will not lead us to eternal life, because then we bear the mark of the beast, and not the seal of God! In the book The Great Controversy, Ellen White stated the clear fact that in all eternity we will be together only with God the Father and His Son Jesus! 

The Holy Spirit does not exist as the third being in the description of eternity, because he is not the third God, but only the Spirit of the Father and the Son and Their literal and conscious presence in us!

  • The glory of God and the Lamb floods the Holy City with unfading light. The redeemed walk in the sunless glory of perpetual day. “I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.” Revelation 21:22. The people of God are privileged to hold open communion with the FATHER and the SON. {Ellen White: Great Controversy, p. 676.3+4} 
  • “And the years of eternity, as they roll, will bring richer and still more glorious revelations of GOD and of CHRIST.“ {Ellen White: Great Controversy, p. 678.1}
