Gasoline and match only belong in the hands of the enemies army..amen .. The Truth is the main object of attack and that will always arise when Truth stands..Christ was killed by His enemy thru workers who didnt even know that they are being used of the arch enemy..so beware christians if you dare call yourselves christians..you could be one of them..

The remnant is those who remain faithful to GOD until Jesus returns.I firmly believe I am part of the remnant since at 72 I am among the generation who saw the Jews return to Jerusalem.However,as I said before we must remain faithful and I am trying my best to remain that way.No one is perfect or sin free but I try hard to follow JESUS teachings and am of course born again.

Those who are obedient to God, and has the Spirit of Prophecy which is Testimony of Jesus Christ,. We SDAs are also remnants of God's church..amen

For my Catholic friends, I would like to say this: if your conscience allows you to worship on Sunday, and it is more convenient, I think it is okay. Individuals are not responsible for the decisions their leaders take, and if you have a clear conscience, then Sunday worship is okay. I pray God will show everyone His Divine Will.

The Church, The *Body of Christ* is not a remnant. The Church is the Mystery, Christ in You, and we are a New creation.
The remnant you are speaking of in Revelation are the 12 tribes of Israel, who will enter into the Millennial Kingdom Reign when Jesus Christ returns to earth and takes the throne of David

Yes, I am part of the remnant. People are turning away from the one, true, living God. We, God's people, must pray for God to keep us not to let us stray. Never take your salvation for granted because if you do Satan is ready to welcome you back.

You are referring to the hack lawyer (Ramik?) who wrote a legal brief--an opinion--not fact that redefined the word "plagiarize"
Gertrude Stein wrote, "a rose is a rose is a rose" In other words, redefinition of a term does not change the nature of the object.
Would you eat it if I renamed what comes out of a horse as "oatmeal"?
That is why she will always remain a plagiarizer.
---John_T on 1/29/08|
John T: you still lie on this blog..EGW was found NOT GUILTY OF PLAGURISING..where is your proof to all this blasphemous statement.She taught from the Bible only..of cause, you like to find rot in anyone who is of God...Preach truth friend, not rot. We SDAs are Remnants of God's church. We who follow ALL hIS COMMANDS. I pray you are a Remnant.

"And the dragon was wroth with the women and went to make war with her seed which keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus."
This remnant keeps the commandments, not just 9. This group keeps the sabbath Matthew 24:20
And they have the testimony of Jesus
Rev 19:10 says the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
They will have spiritual gifts in this area of prophecy.

"EGW taught that the Bible - and the Bible only"
If that is the case, why not have a mass book burning of EGW books, then?
That is the LOGICAL thing to do, especially since much of the unplagerized stuff she wrote about is NOT in the Bible.
I have the gasoline ready, and a match!
---John_T on 7/10/06|
Jerry - "EGW taught that the Bible - and the Bible only - are to be our rule of faith."
Certainly a claim by any cultic group but there are too many books that document the facts concerning EGW and you need to put aside your prejudices and take the time to read them.
Start with "the Case of D.M.Canright" by Douty. Canright was an intimate early supporter of EGW and one of the chief leaders of the SDA. If you want the website, let me know as it is a real eye opener.

This time, you stepped on another land mine. By rejecting the works of the Ante-Nicene fathers (btw calling them "Roman Catholic" is anachronistic) you also reject the Apostles Creed, and the Nicene Creed. The Micahel = jesus heresy also denies it:
"I believe in God, the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord..
---John_T on 7/10/06|
Lee: EGW taught that the Bible - and the Bible only - are to be our rule of faith. You will notice that the SDAs on this site use Bible quotes only to substantiate their positions (as we are taught). You and John T generally use modern commentaries, the writings of early Catholic saints, name-calling and religious bigotry to substantiate yours. I'd say that if anyone is a heretic, it's you guys..
---jerry6593 on 7/10/06|
Jerry "You reject the clear teachings of scripture, preferring the opinions of men."
I believe ANY of the Ante-Nicene Fathers had a better Christology than EGW.
SDAs reject the Apostles and Nicene Creeds insisting in the heresy jesus = Michael.
They insist on extra Biblical doctrines like IJ, and closed Door, and they cut-and-pasts Scripture portions, ignoring the context to arrive at wrong conclusions.
I am not name calling I describe the heresy accurately.

Remnant of Israel willed be saved. Romans 9:27, 11:1-25
---Creamcup on 7/9/06|
Copied from Naves Topical Bible. Jews. A corrupted form, doubtless, of Judah, and applied to the people of the kingdom of Judah and Benjamin, 2Kings 16:6; 25:25; 2Chronicles 32:18. After the dissolution the the kingdom of Israel the name was applied to all Israelites, as well as to those of the two tribes.
---Creamcup on 7/9/06|
And BTW Jerry; regarding your stmt of Christians following the opinions of men; consider the fact that if all the books written by EGW were stacked on top of each other, they would be higher than she was.
Isn't if intereting that since the SDA considers her works authoritative, that God would give so much to the SDA that has existed only for about 150 years and so very little - merely the Bible (around 2 inches thick), written by some 50 people to the church that has existed for over 2000 years?
---lee on 7/9/06|
Jerry - "You reject the clear teachings of scripture, preferring the opinions of men."
If you are an SDA, then you will be contiinually taught the works of Ellen G. White. In fact, some of her books are leather bounded and are continually referenced.
You certainly need to re-think your statment that those who follow sound doctrine are "perferring the opinions of men." as clearly that is the case in the SDA group.
---lee on 7/9/06|
The Jewish remnant was saved at the time of Jesus they were the 5 wise virgins or tribes of Israel that made up the Church at Jerusalem and accepted Jesus in other places, salvation was to the Jew first then went to the Gentiles after that the Jew was cut off and the Gentile branch grafted in.
---Exzucuh on 7/9/06|
John T: Your entire belief system is built on heresy. You reject the clear teachings of scripture, preferring the opinions of men. Please engage in an honest discussion of doctrines and respect people's right to hold different opinions without this constant ugly name-calling. Christians aren't supposed to act this way.
---jerry6593 on 7/9/06|
ERIC, PIERRE, JERRY and other SDAs here:
Until you join in the renouncation of the SDA heresy of Jesus = Michael, by definition, you remain part of an APOSTATE "remnant", not the called out ones.
That doctrine creates a DIFFERENT Jesus than is in the Bible, and it is IMPOSSIBLE for any other "Jesus" to save people from their sins.
There are very strong implications in that statement, I know, but it is the truth.
---John_T on 7/8/06|
Tom2, In me you have one who looks to be corrected. As a matter of fact I expect to be corrected, my focus is on understanding and sharing that which I have been privileged to understand. If all any time anyone finds a statement that I have made to be in error please correct me. It would be Appreciated. Thanks in advance
---joseph on 7/3/06|
I am part of the remnant. I know that the talents God gave me are for this end time.
---Lynn on 7/3/06|
Joseph, I,am really not sure as I stated in my original post. you may very well be correct.I make lots of mistakes. I like your attitude. wouldn,t it be great if we all could accept correction well?????
---tom2 on 7/2/06|
The messianic Jews(Jews who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Messiah) are the remnant of today. Non-Jews are not part of this remnant. Most Jewish people who have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ understand that they are part of the remmant today. And they weep and howl over the fact that the non-accepting Jews seemingly are lost forever.
---mima on 7/1/06|
As I recall about Ezekiel, it was God, not him who declared a faithful remnant of 7000. Therefore, the assumption of one's being a "remnant" is bogus and prideful.
---John_T on 7/1/06|
Tom2- Only 12,000 of these are jews. Only the offsprings of Judah, the inhabitants of Judaea and those who practice Judaism are called jews. The word did not enter scripture until 2 Kings 16:6 in reference to the tribe of judah, as is the reference in Rev. 7. This 144,000 are called servants of God, no mention is made of them being a remnant. What I believe this question refers to is Ro. 11:5. Alan correct me if I am in error.
---joseph on 7/1/06|
Eric: You nailed it again!
---jerry6593 on 7/1/06|
The only remnant I,am familiar with is in revelation and they are jews, born again jews.144,000 of them
