JESUS CHRIST AS .MR. SANDMAN.

"CONDITIONAL IMMORTALITY"

 If you Believe on Me (Jesus Christ)

 

  You'll Never Die

if you live until My

Second Coming!

However, if you don't convert the world to Adventist Theology

in this generation, you may have to sleep in your graves until the

FIRST  RESURRECTION!

 

While promising Adventists Eternal Life:

"Immortality"

It's only on the CONDITION of belief in Jesus Christ as their Savior:

"Conditional"

And initially, during the first 40+ years of Adventism, from 1844 through 1888, other Conditions thought to be required were living a good life, performing "GOOD WORKS", quitting smoking cigarettes, no consumption of alcoholic beverages, wearing no jewelry and wearing representative "Christian" clothing, and following other instructions to be found in

"TESTIMONIES TO THE CHURCH"

 The "Holt Children" believed all this  to be true, on a Utah farm

HOWEVER, WE ALSO BELIEVED IN THE STANDARD

   Christian "Gospel" of John 3:16,17

   John 3:16 "For God so loved the WORLD, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting LIFE."

   John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the WORLD to condemn the WORLD; but that the WORLD through him might be SAVED."  

 

What happens to those who do not accept Christ as their Savior and do Good Works?

    John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned:-- "  Condemned to what? Many other texts well known only to Adventists!

CONDEMNED TO BURNING UP IN A "LAKE OF FIRE"!

    "but he that BELIEVETH NOT is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the NAME of the only begotten Son of God."

 

      After 1000 years of being dead in the ground of the earth devastated by the glorious return of Jesus Christ to welcome to his "cloud" and then to HEAVEN his own special children, Seventh-day Adventists -- the wicked (non-Adventists) also will be resurrected.

    They'll get one more chance to follow SATAN for a while, and show that Adventists in their courtroom in heaven have judged correctly their wickedness, then they'll receive their FIERY REWARD!

   Revelation 20:14 "And DEATH and HELL were cast into the

Lake of Fire. This is the second death."

   16 "And whosoever was not found written in the BOOK of LIFE was cast into the Lake of Fire."

The "Fine Print"

(NECESSARY IN JESUS' ERA TO MAKE IT ESSENE THEOLOGY)   

      John 3:19 "And this is the CONDEMNATION, that LIGHT has come into the WORLD (initial meaning - God created LIGHT on the First Day (Genesis 1:3-5) -- John's meaning in John 3:19 -- OBVIOUS: Jesus has again "created LIGHT in John's era, 4000 years after the initial creation --NOT SO OBVIOUS: Jesus as HORUS now creates light as the SUN, having replaced the dead Osiris as the current major GOD of the Egyptian Trinity Osiris, Isis, and Horus.--- LESS OBVIOUS STILL: Given more time, and the opportunity to do so, the Author of Hewrews (not Paul but Appollos, another Essene Egyptian Theologian and later Christian Apologist) will make it appear that Christ, not Jehovah-Yahweh, created LIGHT in the beginning (In Genesis 1:3-5) closing a possible GAP in the comprehension of those Gentiles it was his assigned purpose to convert to the brand-new Christian Religion.-----

     John 3:19b "---and that men loved DARKNESS rather than LIGHT, because their DEEDS were EVIL"

    This puts what John is writing into a phraseology that is completely in accord with the Essene phraseology of the Essene "Community Rule" but NOT IN ACCORD with what Christianity would later find to be acceptable after the Council of Nicaea and many centuries later, with Christianity as liberalized still further by Martin Luther.

     John 3:20 "For every one that DOETH EVIL hateth the LIGHT, neither cometh to the LIGHT, lest his DEEDS should be reproved."

     John 321 "But he that DOETH TRUTH cometh to the LIGHT, that his DEEDS may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."

    This continues a phraseology that is completely in accord with the Essene phraseology of the Essene "Community Rule" but NOT IN ACCORD with what Christianity would later find to be acceptable after the Council of Nicaea and many centuries later, with Christianity as liberalized still further by Martin Luther.

      It's also important to NOTE, time-wise, that this meeting of Nicodemus, "Bartholomew" (actually the Author of "John") and Jesus near Khirbet Mazin about 30 AD was long before Paul was converted and began the process of further improving the ideas and presentation for the purpose of converting more Gentiles to a new and improved Essene theology.

Ellen (Harmon) White's First Important Vision was based on John 3:18-21

      "Early Writings" page 14 "While I was praying at the family altar (Gorham, Maine, 1844), the Holy Ghost fell upon me, and I seemed to be rising higher and higher, far above the dark world.  I turned to look for the Advent people in the world, but could not find them, when a voice said to me. "Look again, and look a little higher."  At this I raised my eyes, and saw a straight and narrow path (the Essene "WAY"), cast up high above the world.  On this path the Advent people were traveling to the city (Qumran, the "New Jerusalem" of the Essenes), which was at the farther end (the southern end) of the path.

     They had a bright light (the light described in John 3:18-21) set up behind them at the beginning of the path, which an angel told me was the midnight cry.  This light (Essene "Good Works") shone all along the path and gave light for their feet so that they might not stumble.  If they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus (the Essene Messiah), who was just before them, leading them to the city (to Qumran) they were safe. 

    But soon some grew weary ("Good Works" are tiresome, and the list of what they shouldn't be doing was growing longer), and said the city ("Heaven" where they could rest) was a great way off, and they expected to have entered it before.  Then Jesus would encourage them by raising His glorious right arm (thought by Adventists to be "health reform" at the Battle Creek Sanitarium and other such places) ---

    --and from his arm came a (new) light (the "Holy Ghost" --Pentecost) which waved over the Advent band (the new interest in the "Second Coming" by the new Pentecostal movement), and the SHOUTED "Alleluia!"  Others (Waggoner, Jones, Ford, Brinsmeades) rashly denied the light ("Good Works") behind them (abandoned as a standard in 1888) and said it was not God that had led them out so far (from nominal Christian doctrines and practices).  The (Essene) light (of John 3:18-21) behind them (they left it in 1888) went out, leaving their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and lost sight of the mark (of the beast) and of (the Essene) Jesus, and fell off the path down into the dark and wicked world below."

    This took a while, about another 40 years to complete -- the Adventists became Trinitarians, began to see Christ's sacrifice in 33 AD as all-sufficient -- completely bought into all the delusions of Paul's deceptive theology, and were ready to hear, as had other Christians before them, the BETTER OFFER that Christ offered Martha in 32 AD.

Selling the New Theology to Martha

    We do not have to wait for Paul to meet the Risen Jesus in Damascus (supposedly in a VISION but actually in person) for the offer of Jesus of ETERNAL LIFE ("IMMORTALITY") for everyone in the WORLD who will believe in him (and join and support his church) to be made in terms that do not load up the OFFER with a lot of Essene "fine print".  Middle Ages world-lings and Modern world-lings will not like this "fine print" and may not buy the product.  So Jesus made the OFFER to Martha (pictured above talking to either Lazarus or Jesus) (the gray hair makes his identity a matter of conjecture), just before he raised Lazarus from the dead.

     John 11:20 "Then MARTHA, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but MARY (that would be Mary Magdalene, Martha's sister to those allowed to believe any of this by their chosen churches) sat still in the house."

      21 "Then said MARTHA unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.  22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee."  (Jesus would not be asking Jehovah-Yahweh for this "miracle", but an Essene superior who claimed to speak for Jehovah-Yahweh, but we have no time for such details here).

      23 "Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again."

     24 "MARTHA saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day."  Here Martha is expressing the same belief in the RESURRECTION that was held to be TRUE by all Pharisees including Lazarus and later the Apostle Paul."  But Jesus had other points to make, other beliefs to present to the World, and right here is where he stated them rather CLEARLY.  Clearly enough to be made a part of almost every Protestant FUNERAL Service that I have ever paid much attention to, other than at Seventh-day Adventist Funerals.

      25 "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the LIFE: he that beleveth in me, though he were DEAD, yet shall he LIVE:  26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall NEVER DIE. Believeth thou this?"

      27 "She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world."

     THAT'S ALL MODERN CHRISTIANS NEED TO KNOW AND TO SAY TO LIVE FOREVER, TO "NEVER DIE", AND THEY ARE NOT GOING TO ALLOW ANYONE LIKE ME TO "EXPLAIN AWAY" THIS PROMISE OF JESUS, OR ADD ON ANY OTHER CONDITIONS, SUCH AS "LIVING A GOOD LIFE" -- OR EVEN, IN SOME CASES, EVER SETTING FOOT INTO A CHRISTIAN CHURCH, OR PAYING TITHE, OR LIVING IN HOLY MATRIMONY WITH ONE WOMAN, OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU AND I MIGHT ASSUME MIGHT BE REASONABLE CONDITIONS TO BE ALLOWED INTO "HEAVEN", THERE TO LIVE ON FOREVER AND EVER!

     I'm calling this Promise of Jesus to MARTHA, the "Standard Christian Promise of IMMORTALITY" -- although Catholics would ADD, without DOUBT, other "Conditions" --- You must be a baptized Roman Catholic, go to Confession and Mass when able, and a whole host of other more minor conditions we can't go into here.

 

    I think itís important to note here, that most Protestants hope to gain their HEAVENLY REWARD immediately  at the MOMENT of DEATH, with no waiting in the grave, because that is the LITERAL MEANING of Jesus' promise in John 11:26.  Catholics, however, have several classes of people, some of which may have to wait. Those Catholics such as the Mafia, or those who almost never attend confession or Mass may have to spend some time in Purgatory. And until recently all Protestants will be assigned by Saint Peter, the First Pope and the GATE-KEEPER", the one one with the "Keys" -- to HELL, not HEAVEN!
