“Where Truth can Enter”

ABOMINATIONS THAT BE DONE IN THE MIDST THEREOF

  1. The knockout blow of 1959 propaganda;
  2. The beloved name “Davidia” and the hated name “Eleventh-hour church”;
  3. Association formed as a result of WW II propaganda;
  4. Accepting the additions to the Shepherd’s Rod Message and teaching for doctrines the errors therein;
  5. Tormenting Mother with the distribution on literature in front of the churches on Sabbath, at camp meetings and other SDA events.

Tormenting Mother with the distribution of Literature in front of the Churches on Sabbath, at Camp meetings, at The General Conference, and other SDA events.

Where did this abomination originate from?  I know you wouldn’t be surprised if I told you: “From the same place the sermons in the New Codes originated.”

How do I know that? In Volume 14 The Symbolic Code No.6, The Executive Council published a letter to The General Conference Executive Committee dated February 17, 1959. It was signed by Florence Houteff and all her cronies.

In this letter we will find out where the various abominations that are going on among Davidians today came from. You will not find these activities anywhere in the Rod message. We shall read some excerpts from the letter (please find the original letters and documentation on our website, https://www.gadsda.com/).

14SC6: 7.1: God’s instrumentality (the 2 candlesticks) with support of His Word (the 2 olive trees) have smitten the earth with all plagues as often as they willed during this time.

14SC6: 7.2: The word plague, as you doubtless are aware, means anything very troublesome or causing misery; a nuisance; to trouble or annoy greatly, harass, torment, vex, disturb. The plagues came during this time in form of various campaigns. To name them specifically they were:

  1. The distribution of the vast amount The Shepherd’s Rod literature to Seventh-day Adventists:
  2. The door-to-door contacting of Seventh-day Adventists by Davidians:
  3. The passing out of Rod literature in the Adventist churches;
  4. The displaying of “Hear Ye the Rod” signs before the Adventist churches;
  5. The displaying of the signs and the passing out of Rod literature at all the Adventist camp meetings in the U. S. and some other countries;
  6. The effort of Davidians in Cleveland, including the publishing of an Open Letter to the General Conference Session; and
  7. The present radio program, “The Eleventh-Hour Call” which now is being expanded to nationwide coverage.

 

She continues to say:

14SC6: 8.2: By this letter we make it known to you that we are now leaving this entire matter with the Lord to demonstrate whether He is leading in the work at Mt. Carmel, or whether He is leading you to stop your ears to the message which Mt. Carmel has put forth in her official publications.

14SC6: 8.2: This means that The Shepherd’s Rod message is now on the altar. If you are positive in your position the The Shepherd’s Rod is not of the Lord and that you are being led of God to resist it, you will not hesitate to put your all on the altar as well. In fact, you failure to do so will indicate a lack of faith on your part in the position you hold.

14SC6: 8.3: If the message and work of The Shepherd’s Rod is God’s Truth as we believe it to be, the 1260 days of Revelation 11 as The Symbolic Codes have explained, will end sometime this Spring, then will follow the war that will kill the Two Witnesses. Those whom the Witnesses had tormented will gloat over this. But after 3 ½ days the Two Witnesses will be exalted. At the same time will come the earthquake (shaking) in which will be slain all the hypocrites in God’s part of Christendom — the Adventist church. The remnant will give glory to God.

14SC6: 9.1: This is a serious matter. We sincerely feel that if the Rod message (which we believe is the Lord’s) is not His work, the sooner we know it the better it will be for the church and the world too. Likewise with you brethren. In all integrity you should be just as anxious to know where your position stands in the Lord’s sight. If the Lord is not in your positon, the sooner you know it, the better it will be for the church and the world too.

14SC6: 9.2: We have honesty set before you the belief on which we stand. We have been led to it by our understanding of God’s revelation of His Word. Therein lies our faith.

14SC6: 9.3: Now is your opportunity to reveal to all the church and the world your willingness to allow God to have His way.

Sincerely yours to witness the demonstration of God’s leading,

THE GENERAL ASSOCIATION OF DAVIDIAN SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS.

Florence and her Council members wrote informing the General Conference that they were putting The Rod on the altar: if their prediction fails, The Rod is not Truth; if their prediction comes through, The Rod is Truth. When her prediction failed on April 22nd 1959, that was the blow — but it did not knock us out, it only knocked us down (not out).

She also informed the General Conference of the plagues that they were plaguing the church with. Let us recap some of these plagues because they are the very things that Davidians are doing today — and they got them from Florence Houteff and her Executive Council.

Florence Houteff’s Plagues.

Plague: “anything very troublesome or causing misery; a nuisance; to trouble or annoy greatly; harass, torment, vex, disturb.”

The plagues were in the form of the following campaigns:

  1. The distribution of the vast amount The Shepherd’s Rod literature to Seventh-day Adventists:
  2. The door-to-door contacting of Seventh-day Adventists by Davidians:
  3. The passing out of Rod literature in the Adventist churches;
  4. The displaying of “Hear Ye the Rod” signs before the Adventist churches;
  5. The displaying of the signs and the passing out of Rod literature at all the Adventist camp meetings in the U. S. and some other countries;
  6. The effort of Davidians in Cleveland, including the publishing of an Open Letter to the General Conference Session; and
  7. The present radio program, “The Eleventh-Hour Call” which now is being expanded to nationwide coverage.

The only two activities that are sanctioned by The SRod Message are the first two. Let us hear the ROD on the passing out of Literature, and where, and to whom?

1SC15: 9.9: Complaints have come to us that some of our people, in their zeal for spreading the message, have been passing out present truth literature inside the S.D.A. churches, talking to church members during preaching, etc., and thus distract and disturb.

1SC15: 9.10: Our past experience has taught us not to believe all we hear. Nevertheless, we forewarn the friends of present truth to be very careful, for it is possible to cast reproach on Christ by casting reproach on the message, and also cause others to stumble over your unwise judgment. Therefore, we ask all who are interested in spreading present truth to refrain from passing out any literature on the church premises or speaking during preaching. The sidewalks belong to the public; you can meet your friends there.

These common practices mentioned are very prevalent among Present Truth believers today. The ROD condemns these activities.

“Meet your friends on the sidewalk” suggests befriending the members first then give them the Rod literature on the sidewalk is needs be. Standing in front of the church handing out literature is not handing out to your “friends” because we don’t know those people we are handing the Literature to.

Let us read the supreme work of Present Truth believers, taken from Volume 7 The Symbolic Code Numbers 1-6, page 2, column 1, paragraph 1 and 2:

 

Dear Brethren:

7SC1-6: 2.1.1: Your prompt and zealous response to the urgent appeal which we broadcast by letter sometime ago, to come up to the help of the Lord against the mighty, by securing names for the literature, was a deep gratification, not only to us here at the center of the work and to you in the field, but certainly also to the angels above, at the very source of the work!  Just think, Brethren, of the glorious opportunity of having a part in the work in which angels share–the unmatched privilege of helping “to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel,” by gathering their names and addresses!

7SC1-6: 2.1.2: Being privileged to engage in such an exalted endeavor should constantly fire the one so honored, to put forth ever-increasing zeal in his efforts.  And this seems to have been the experience of most Present Truth believers.

7SC1-6: 2.1.3: Because of the supreme worth of the work at stake, and the shortness of time in which to accomplish it, we therefore address you at this time to encourage you anew to continue, and even step up if possible, your enthusiastic support of the Name-Ingathering campaign.  Cling to the Lord’s promise: “So shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”  Isa. 55:11.  Let this be your faith, and in the Kingdom you shall certainly look upon the fruits of your labors, and rejoice with an everlasting rejoicing!

7SC1-6: 2.1.4: We are glad to report that your zealous efforts have compelled the Circulation Department to increase its facilities, and that it is now equipped to handle many additional names.  So be not satisfied until you have swamped us with the names and addresses of S.D.A.’s.  (Keep in touch with your prospects, and if you learn of anyone’s moving from his reported address, or of something pertaining to any one of them which would be of interest to the Circulation Department, please inform us immediately.)

All right. Notice? It is a Name-ingathering Campaign that the Rod pushes for and none of these abominations that were mentioned in Sister Houteff’s letter.

And in Volume 7 The Symbolic Code Numbers 7-12, the Name-ingathering campaign is mentioned again:

 

SHALL WE PICK THE UNRIPE SECOND FRUITS AND LEAVE THE FIRST TO SPOIL?

Question No. 233:

Shall we, in the Name-ingathering Campaign, send in names and addresses of those without as well as within the S.D.A. denomination?  {7SC7-12: 17.2.7}

Answer:

As publishers of the Present Truth series of books and tracts in the interest of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination, our duty now is to work only within the church.  Then when we have accomplished this work (when the “firstfruits” therein have been sealed), Michael will stand up to deliver every one whose name is found written in the book (Dan. 12:1)–every one who has the seal: for they are then entering into the time of trouble such as never was.  And while standing, He shall send “this pure, true, sanctified ministry” (B:55-1886), 144,000 in number, “unto the nations” to declare His glory among the Gentiles” (Isa. 66:19), and to deliver the rest of His people. {7SC7-12: 17.2.8}

Present Truth believers taking part in the Name-ingathering Campaign are therefore requested to confine their efforts strictly to within the S.D.A. denomination, and to renew their zeal in this great and important work. {7SC7-12: 18.1.3}

We shall go to the continued offence:

CONTINUE THE OFFENSIVE

Are you among those who have with patient zeal faithfully continued in the Name-Ingathering campaign, or are you among those who, unable to endure the race set before them, have fallen by the wayside?  The year 1943 should see doubled and trebled the number of names and addresses sent in.  This is yours to achieve, and you shall achieve it by meeting two conditions: first, by exploiting every opportunity to commingle wisely with the church brethren, quietly making new acquaintances; renewing and continuing old ones; and second, by tactfully eliciting from them their names and addresses. {8SC1-12: 24.1.6}

Few, if any, have exhausted all the possibilities of procuring names and addresses of our brethren who hunger for truth and righteousness.  Always keep with you a notebook expressly for this purpose, and use it well!  Resolve that 1943 will see you work as never before to get new names and addresses, and to get them meticulously correct. {8SC1-12: 24.2.3}

Brother, Sister, our brethren are judgment-bound for the slaughter pre-depicted in Ezekiel 9!  We must give an account for their souls.  Gather their names and addresses and send them in quickly! {8SC1-12: 24.2.4}

Now we will read about our duty in:

The first duty of each Davidian is to be faithful in obeying the principles of the doctrine, in doing whatsoever work he is given to do, and by precept and by example leading others to do likewise. {9SC1-12: 18.2.5}

Some are thus doing by building Mt. Carmel Center, some by giving studies, others by writing letters and sending tracts and books to their relatives, friends, and acquaintances, and still many others by sending in names and addresses of Seventh-day Adventists to whom Present-Truth literature may be sent. {9SC1-12: 18.2.6}

Each must be faithful in his duties, as was Daniel, so that he bring no reproach against his religious profession, but rather, by his consistent behavior and faithful service in the name of Christ, lead others to the message of the hour.  Today as never before the Christian is to be “not slothful in business,” but “fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.”  Rom. 12:11. {9SC1-12: 18.2.7}

Notice that none of the last five “plagues” listed in Florence’s letter were found recorded in any of the statements published by the prophet.  You can search The Rod over and over and you would not find any of her five abominations that she was supposedly “plaguing” the church with. The Rod never tells us to plague the church. Instead, the Rod tells us to “mingle and befriend” — befriend, not plague — but that is exactly what Davidians are doing today: plaguing the church; tormenting them; disturbing. Florence gave you the words and that is exactly what is being done today.

The Rod teaches a quiet Name-ingathering Campaign. What are we going to do? Gather names forever? No we’re not, the Rod tells us what we are to do after we finish gathering the names. Let us go to the Jezreel Letters (one of the last publications) and they tell us what the next move after the ingathering is. These are the Letters that were sent out in 1953 when the Hunting Campaign started; less than two years before the prophet’s death.

JL6: 5.3: Here you are plainly told that in the gathering time the servants of God are compelled first to fish His people, and since our first contact with them has been through the literature, it, therefore, fore must be the fishing.  Rightly so, too, because as it is scattered everywhere as the leaves of autumn, the fish come to examine it, find it good for food, take a bite and get hooked, so to speak.  Now, however, we are in the hunting period, and we have already begun to hunt them, be they in the city or in the country in places easy to get to, or in places hard to get to.  Wherever they live, there they must be hunted, although It will not be a small easy task to catch at home something like 300,000 Adventists scattered throughout the United States alone, besides over 500,000 scattered throughout the foreign lands.  Moreover, it is mighty expensive work, too, demanding many hunters with expensive chariots (cheaper ones could not stand up), covering hundreds of thousands of miles and requiring as many barrels of gasoline and oil.  This is not a small task, proportionately there has never been the like, and will therefore take every present Truth believer to keep this going and get the work done, so that we can soon go to Glory Land.

 

Note carefully that the first task is to fish them with the literature by gathering the names, sending them to the Association, and the literature sent to those names. Then the final task before we get to the Kingdom is to hunt them wherever they livenot to hunt them in front of churches, in front of the General Conferences, or in front of whatever activity the Adventist church is participating in — but hunt them wherever they live by going and knocking on their doors. Again, there is no mention made of the uninspired activities conducted during Florence Houteff’s forty-two months of plaguing the church; a prediction that failed.

We as Davidians have taken up her plaguing methods, and we are teaching them for doctrines, yet they cannot be found in the Rod! This is an abomination and it must be stopped. You say, “How are we going to stop it?” You and I cannot stop it, but God will when He sends forth His angels with slaughtering weapons to remove all those who insist on continuing the abominations of Florence Houteff and her Executive Council.

I pray that every Davidian will stop these abominations and start obeying the Message so that we can soon go Home.  We need to return to the primitive gospel — the Fundamentals that make us Davidians.

May God help us, may God bless us, as we do a “Thus saith The Lord.” We will see you in Part II, “Timeline to the Kingdom.”
