Speaking of the Jewish Church when Jesus came the 1st time ~
A backsliding church closed their eyes to the signs of the times. God did not forsake them, or suffer his faithfulness to fail; but they departed from him, and separated themselves from his love. As they refused to comply with the conditions, his promises were not fulfilled to them. 4SP 200.1
And then we are told, “Such is the sure result of neglect to appreciate and improve the light and privileges which God bestows.”
Love for Christ and faith in his coming waxed cold. Such is the sure result of neglect to appreciate and improve the light and privileges which God bestows.Unless the church will follow on in his opening providence, accepting every ray of light, performing every duty which may be revealed, religion will inevitably degenerate into the observance of forms, and the spirit of vital godliness will disappear. This truth has been repeatedly illustrated in the history of the church. God requires of his people works of faith and obedience corresponding to the blessings and privileges bestowed. Obedience requires a sacrifice and involves a cross; and this is why so many of the professed followers of Christ refused to receive the light from Heaven, and, like the Jews of old, knew not the time of their visitation. [Luke 19:44.] Because of their pride and unbelief, the Lord passed them by, and revealed his truth to men in humble life, who had given heed to all the light they had received. 4SP 200.2
Do you believe that the SDA Church is walking in the light any more than the Jewish Church was at Jesus 1st Coming? I do not. That is why I am convinced that HISTORY WILL BE REPEATED, and as a WHOLE, the SDA CHURCH will REJECT Jesus when He comes the 2nd Time, just as the Jews rejected Him the 1st Time.
Our LOYALTY must not be to THE CHURCH but to THE TRUTH!
