I LOVE that there are now places like ‘Spectrum’ for SDAs of all ‘colors’ of the spectrum to ‘vent’, somewhat publicly, when they cannot agree with the ‘official’ SDA-GC positions. I would not want to jeopardize that great freedom. So, please, feel free to ‘edit’ me whenever you see fit. As a ‘dog’ like the Syro-Phoenician woman Jesus tested, I’m happy with ‘crumbs’ from the SDA table. Moreso, as the ‘tail’ of the ‘dog’, I may contentedly rest in the realization that I will never ‘wag the dog’ of my SDA ‘betters’.
You see, I was once told by an authoritative SDA (now a PhD) that,
"With some education you could be someone."
Happily, I determined to follow the advice of another Leader.
Now, regarding the new NUC development :
We SDAs love prophecy. . . but all prophecies ?
The prophecy linked below in Ezekiel 34 – which is against the bullying ‘shepherds’ of God’s flock, and the bullying members within the flock itself – seems to have been fulfilled at least twice by Jesus, Himself, while on Earth. Then, He ‘cleansed’ the ‘Temple’. . . NOT of ‘sinners’, but of the self-‘righteous’ bullies, so he could ‘heal’ in peace.
Why not again, right now ? And, as many times as it takes until His ‘flock’ has ‘eyes that see’ and ‘ears that hear’ ?
So, isn’t it fascinating and exciting to see Jesus at work, again ? !
Who would accuse Gentle Jesus of disregarding His own church policies by mercifully overruling the bullies for the sake of the wounded, sick, weary and hungry of His flock ? How many of us have felt the sting of the ‘whips’ raised against us, or against our close friends, by ‘Good Adventists’ in the SDA church, and so, have consistently failed to find comfort in ‘My Father’s House’ ?
"When Jesus heard it, He said to them,
“Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.
I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”
Mark 2:17 NKJV
". . . And the Lord, whom you seek,
Will suddenly come to His temple,
Even the Messenger of the covenant,
In whom you delight. . . ."
Malachi 3:1 NKJV
"He who testifies to these things says,
“Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
Revelation 22:20-21 NKJV
