Part 3
CONCLUSION

I believe that we as Seventh-day Adventists, through, and because of, the writings of Ellen White, are more privileged and more blessed than any generation that has ever lived. I also believe that we as Seventh-day Adventist have been given a more complete and correct understanding of God, His will, His truth, and His character than any generation that has ever lived; again, through, and because of, the writings of Ellen White. I don’t know what more God could do to show us His love, reach our hearts, and thereby save us:

“Having undertaken our redemption, He will spare nothing, however dear, which is necessary to the completion of His work. No truth essential to our salvation is withheld, no miracle of mercy is neglected, no divine agency is left unemployed. Favor is heaped upon favor, gift upon gift. The whole treasury of heaven is open to those He seeks to save.”  {Desire of Ages 57}

Having said what I’ve just said about our truly wonderful and unique privilege as a people that have been given such an abundance of light, I believe I must share with you the extremely solemn warnings she gives about rejecting this great light—any of it:

“It should be remembered that the greater the light bestowed, the greater the darkness of those who pervert and reject it.”  {Great Controversy 572}

“I saw that the greater the light which the people reject, the greater will be the power of deception and darkness which will come upon them. The rejection of truth leaves men captives, the subjects of Satan’s deception.”  {1 Testimonies 232}

Both the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy are very clear—that if we don’t love God and His truth with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind, and with all our might; and show that love by true, heartfelt obedience to every one of His commandments, we are “deceiving our own selves.” {James 1:22} This will eventually, and inevitably, cause us to mistake this “way”—“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” {Proverbs 14:12}, for this “way”—“…the way, which leadeth unto life.” {Matthew 7:14}

All who are doing this—deceiving themselves—will someday realize what a costly mistake they have made. Infinitely better to realize it before it is too late than after, when multitudes will utter those saddest of all words—“The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. {Jeremiah 8:20}

Paul in the book of Hebrews tells us, not once, not twice, but three times:

“Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.”  {Hebrews 3:7, 15; 4:7}

And the Spirit of Prophecy tells us:

“Every act of transgression, every neglect or rejection of the grace of Christ, is reacting upon yourself; it is hardening the heart, depraving the will, benumbing the understanding, and not only making you less inclined to yield, but less capable of yielding, to the tender pleading of God’s Holy Spirit.”  {Steps to Christ 33}

“The evidence given one day, if rejected, may never be repeated.”  {3 Testimonies 258}

Jesus does not lie to us, and He does not kid us. The “way which leads to life” is narrow, very narrow. But we can be certain, and we can stake our whole life on it—that it is the way of life; both true life and eternal life!!!

A few paragraphs back I used a quote from The Desire of Ages. I would like to finish with the final three sentences of that paragraph. They are “the words of eternal life.” They are “greater riches than the treasures in Egypt.” And “all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto them.” {John 6:68; Hebrews 11:26; Proverbs 3:15} Believe them—truly believe them; and receive them; and you’ll never regret it:

“Having collected the riches of the universe, and laid open the resources of infinite power, He gives them all into the hands of Christ, and says, All these are for man. Use these gifts to convince him that there is no love greater than Mine in earth or heaven. His greatest happiness will be found in loving Me.”  {Desire of Ages 57}

One final thought to leave you with. Two major terms and themes of this whole New World Order belief are—ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT and UNITED NATIONS. Please think about those terms, and exactly what is meant by them; and then pray that God will show you how diametrically opposed they are to this counsel from the Spirit of Prophecy:

“We need not, and cannot, expect union among the nations of the earth. Our position in the image of Nebuchadnezzar is represented by the toes, in a divided state, and of a crumbling material, that will not hold together.”  {1 Testimonies 361}
