Defending the TRUE Godhead
Exposing Satan's Greatest Deception on God's Remnant Church


“The Restorer of Paths to Dwell In”
Chapter 32 - Part 3 - "Another Jesus - II"


“… and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.” Isaiah 58:12


Well my brothers and sisters, we MUST be the ones who cry aloud and spare not, for the attack is on the throne of God, His begotten Son and God’s Holy Spirit. It began in the alpha and it has much more multiplied here in the Omega. In Chapter 31 (Part 2), we looked to see that the apostle Paul revealed to us what the Omega is about.

We read in 2 Corinthians 11:3, 4 “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.” Having finite intellects, we are no different than man has been for millenniums. Paul warns us that we are much more vulnerable than Eve to Satan’s subtleties that would cause our understanding of the simplicity of Christ to become corrupted. It indeed has already happened.

I asked the question, “What did Paul mean by another Jesus, another spirit, and another gospel, and what does that have to do with the alpha and omega of apostasy? Well we began to explore how Satan has brought in “another Jesus” and in this chapter, we are going to expand it even further.

As previously discussed, there are those in leadership and higher positions that would like all of us to believe that the Son-ship of Jesus occurred at the incarnation. We need to find out if that is true or not. Also, they would like all of us to believe that the Father–Son relationship is metaphorical.

We touched the subject lightly in chapter 2, and we were able to show, using scripture and S.O.P., that the Son-ship started way back in eternity when Christ was begotten. Is it that important what we believe pertaining to the Son-ship of Jesus? Yes it certainly is important because we have a commandment that says, "Thou shalt not bear false witness …”

We have been told by God’s prophet that “False speaking in any matter, every attempt or purpose to deceive our neighbor, is here included. An intention to deceive is what constitutes falsehood. … All intentional overstatement, every hint or insinuation calculated to convey an erroneous or exaggerated impression, even the statement of facts in such a manner as to mislead, is falsehood. Even the intentional suppression of truth, by which injury may result to others, is a violation of the ninth commandment.” Patriarchs and Prophets, page 309, ‘The law given to Israel’

So my brothers and sisters, not for one second would I jeopardize my eternal life by bringing anyone deception of any kind. I wish I could say the same for those who have changed our religion. The fact of the matter is, is that truth and error cannot co-exist and therefore agree. Those who formulated the errors that have developed some current erroneous doctrines along with those who teach them, are 9th commandment breakers. They need our prayers. Why? Because I too taught and defended the same specific erroneous doctrines that we are talking about in these studies. I trusted leadership and the writings of the educated in the books of a new order. Once I began to research the truth as to what our pioneers really believed and taught, putting bias and prejudice aside, was the time I began to see the errors for what they really were in our church today.

We need to heed God’s prophet who gave us this counsel, “In His dealings with His people in the past the Lord shows the necessity of purifying the church from wrongs. One sinner may diffuse darkness that will exclude the light of God from the entire congregation. When the people realize that darkness is settling upon them, and they do not know the cause, they should seek God earnestly, in great humility and self-abasement, until the wrongs which grieve His Spirit are searched out and put away.” {3T 265.1} So these wrongs that have settled in on God’s church have grieved the Father’s Spirit.

It is very easy to be caught up in the rebellion against heaven if we are careless in our studies. The following words give us a precious insight as to how the initial rebellion in Heaven came about when Satan was still Lucifer: “When Satan learned the purpose of God, he was envious at Christ, and jealous because the Father had not consulted him in regard to the creation of man. Satan was of the highest order of angels; but Christ was above all. He was the commander of all Heaven. He imparted to the angelic family the high commands of his Father.” (Spiritual Gifts, Volume 3, page 36, ‘The temptation and fall’, 1864)

It was later explained concerning the continuing rebellion: “All the angels were astir. Satan was warring against the government of God, because ambitious to exalt himself and unwilling to submit to the authority of God's Son, Heaven's great commander.” (Same source page 37)

So you see Satan “well knew” of Christ’s pre-incarnate position as the Son of God – albeit today many Seventh-day Adventists – especially our leadership – do not seem to know of it. They deny that in His pre-earthly existence, Christ was really a begotten Son. They say He is just role-playing the part. And oh brethren it is very ‘strange’ how these things have developed.

Here she wrote, “Satan was well acquainted with the position of honor Christ had held in Heaven as the Son of God, the beloved of the Father.” (Review and Herald, 3rd March 1874, ‘Redemption No. 2’, see also Signs of the Times, 5th April 1883, ‘Christ’s triumph for us’) Whenever we read the Spirit of Prophecy, we need to realize that the Spirit of God had her write it in such a way that it is not ambiguous. It says what it says and we need to beware of those who say that she really didn’t mean that. I repeat what we just read, “Satan was well acquainted with the position of honor Christ had held in Heaven as the Son of God, the beloved of the Father.”

Satan knew that Christ was the begotten Son of God and that He came forth from the Father. In fact Satan owed his very existence to Christ who created him as Lucifer. Of course it was Lucifer that evolved into Satan.

The fact that the Son-ship of Jesus originating in eternity past is irrefutable. Satan knew it and what it meant to his own immortality. God’s prophet wrote, “Satan well knew the position which Christ had held in Heaven as the Son of God, the Beloved of the Father; and that Christ should leave the joy and honor of Heaven, and come to this world as a man, filled him with apprehension. He knew that this condescension on the part of the Son of God boded no good to him.” (Signs of the Times, 4th August 1887, ‘Christ’s triumph in our behalf’) Satan was aware that his claim to be the prince of this world would be in jeopardy.

Jesus declared to be the Son of God on a number of occasions as Sister White wrote in DA 231 - “The flashing forth of His divinity in the cleansing of the temple, His miracles of healing, and the lessons of divine truth that fell from His lips, all proclaimed that which after the healing at Bethesda He had declared before the Sanhedrin, -- His Sonship to the Eternal.” (The Desire of Ages, page 231, ‘The kingdom of God is at hand’)

At one point the Pharisees wanted to kill Jesus, but listen to what God’s prophet wrote, “The whole nation called God their Father, and if Jesus had done this in the same sense in which they did, the Pharisees would not have been so enraged. But they accused Jesus of blasphemy, showing that they understood that Christ claimed God as His Father in the very highest sense.” (Review and Herald 5th March 1901, ‘Lessons from the Christ-Life’)

Whenever we read the Scriptures, we need to realize that the Spirit of God had inspired over 40 men to write in such a way that simple scriptures are not ambiguous. They mean as they read.

Here is how God’s prophet addresses this point, “The truths most plainly revealed in the Bible have been involved in doubt and darkness by learned men, who, with a pretense of great wisdom, teach that the Scriptures have a mystical, a secret, spiritual meaning not apparent in the language employed. These men are false teachers. It was to such a class that Jesus declared, “Ye know not the Scriptures, neither the power of God.” The language of the Bible should be explained according to its obvious meaning, unless a symbol or figure is employed. Christ has given the promise, “If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine.” If men would but take the Bible as it reads, if there were no false teachers to mislead and confuse their minds, a work would be accomplished that would make angels glad, and that would bring into the fold of Christ thousands upon thousands who are now wandering in error.” — (E.G. White, RH, June 28, 1906)

For example, when Jesus was explaining to the disciples about His being begotten of the Father, He said this in John 16:26, 27. “For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.” Twice He made it clear that He was begotten in eternity. “I came out from God.” And “I came forth from the Father.” Then in John 17:8, Jesus confirmed to His Father that the disciples believe that He was begotten. “For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.”

That is simple enough that even a child can understand it. But those who want to bring in “Another Jesus” will say it doesn’t say that because a “role playing Jesus better fits there twisted theology.

In 8T 268.3 and it couldn’t be put more simply than this, “God is the Father of Christ; Christ is the Son of God. To Christ has been given an exalted position. He has been made equal with the Father. All the counsels of God are opened to His Son.” {8T 268.3} This is not talking about role playing. This is talking about a real Father-Son relationship.

Somewhere way back in eternity, pre-dating even creation, Jesus was begotten or came forth from the Father. The Almighty Father God has always been and that is something we humans with such a limited finite intellect cannot understand. Deuteronomy 29:29 teaches us clearly “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, ...” So God tells us that we can understand what He has revealed in His word and by His prophets, but we are not to speculate or use conjecture to explain what God has not revealed. He has revealed that Jesus was the begotten Son of God. He never revealed that there were three Gods in eternity that chose to play roles. That indeed is going beyond what God has revealed and is the result of intellectual philosophy found in “… books of a new order …” and must be rejected.

Now at that point way back in eternity before creation when the Father begat Jesus, we can take that as fact because He says so. What we don’t know is how He did it because He is God. Whether and how He replicated Himself, making Himself two identical Divine Beings is something we do not know. What we do know is what God’s prophet says in 7A of the BC 437.3.

“The Jews had never before heard such words from human lips, and a convicting influence attended them; for it seemed that divinity flashed through humanity as Jesus said, "I and my Father are one." The words of Christ were full of deep meaning as he put forth the claim that he and the Father were of one substance, possessing the same attributes.”--The Signs of the Times, Nov. 27, 1893, p. 54. {7ABC 437.3}

“The Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the Father, is truly God in infinity, but not in personality.” — (MS116, December 19, 1905)

Now listen to this statement about Jesus from pioneer E.J. Waggoner:

“He was begotten, not created. He is of the substance of the Father, so that in his very nature he is God; and since this is so “it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell.” Col. 1:19 ... While both are of the same nature, the Father is first in point of time. He is also greater in that he had no beginning, while Christ's personality had a beginning.” — (E.J. Waggoner, ST, April 8, 1889)

So you see, when Jesus was begotten of the Father, they were two Divine Beings of the same substance. What began at that moment when He was begotten was the personality of Jesus and He knew He was subservient to the Father. His substance, which is the material that made His form was 100% the Father’s DNA (Divinity-Nature-Attributes) and His substance therefore is as eternal as the Father, but it was His personality that had its beginning.

God never told Sister White to challenge Waggoner’s statement and this was what our pioneers believed.

Therefore when John wrote in John chapter 1 verses 1 & 2, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.” John was talking about that point back in eternity when Jesus was begotten, the point at which the Personality of Jesus had His beginning. It has been simply put and need not be given an ambiguous meaning.

John 5:26 “For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; …”

Brother Solomon wrote this in Proverbs 8:22, 23 “The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.”

We read before, that all things that exist are of the Father, in other words He is the source of ALL things, including His begotten Son, but He did appoint Jesus to be Creator of all things and there are many scriptures that bear that out. John 1:3; Heb. 1:2; 1 Cor. 8:6; Col. 1:13-16; Eph. 3:9; Isa. 44:24, etc.

When we read in the Spirit of Prophecy where Ellen White speaks of the pre-existence of Christ, exactly what He pre-existed was all of creation. We read the following in LHU 17.7 “In speaking of His preexistence, Christ carries the mind back through dateless ages. He assures us that there never was a time when He was not in close fellowship with the eternal God. He to whose voice the Jews were then listening had been with God as one brought up with Him.” {LHU 17.7} Two things to note. First, He assured us, “…there never was a time when He was not in close fellowship with the eternal God.” And that is very true. From the moment way back in eternity that He was begotten, “… there never was a time when He was not in close fellowship with the eternal God.” This surely does not have to be complicated.

Secondly in the same sentence she wrote “…close fellowship with the eternal God.” It is the Father who has no beginning and is the eternal God. But the personality of Jesus had a beginning when He was begotten. We already read previously, “The words of Christ were full of deep meaning as he put forth the claim that he and the Father were of one substance, possessing the same attributes.” This is because He has His Father’s life and all the Father‘s attributes such as immortality, making Him self-existent. Self-existent means to be able to exist independently of other beings. He has His omniscience or infinite intelligence that makes Him all knowing, and He has His omnipotence which means He is all powerful without limitations. He has an internal spirit and since we were made in God’s image, we too have an internal spirit which is as much our person as is our physical body. Also the Father gave His Son His external Spirit which is His omnipresence or the capability of having an external presence anywhere in the universe without being bound by a physical form, but that is certainly a spirit which human beings do not possess as an attribute. But praise the Lord for the fact that we can experience the omnipresent Spirit of Christ and the Father within our very souls.

Brothers and sisters, everything we are discussing is what our pioneers believed and taught. If it sounds different than what you have previously learned, it is because our religion has been changed and it happened over many decades. Whether changes were done intentionally by infiltrators assigned to the task, such as Leroy E. Froom, or well-meaning theologians is irrelevant, for we know the origin of the deceptions is Satanic. What is important is that we grasp an understanding of what our pioneers did actually believe and teach, so that we can be counted among those who will be the restorers of paths to dwell in, that God is now raising up around the world.

Instead of embracing these God sent messages, there will be those who will reject them in the same manner as Sunday-keepers who reject the Sabbath truth. Keep in mind that God is no respecter of persons and we need to align ourselves on the side of truth. Standing on the wrong side of the Omega makes one a transgressor of the 1st and 9th commandments.

In Chapter 33 - Part 4, we will dig even deeper into this continuing exploration to positively identify what the Omega is and believe me, there is much more we still need to know. Satan has worked long and hard over many decades now to get the denomination to the point where it is today, rich, increased with goods and having need of nothing, while deeply embroiled within the Omega.

What he doesn’t want, is for the sincere seekers of truth to learn the true condition of the church, wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked as it is today and especially as it pertains to his deceptive Omega. And for that reason he and his demonic accomplices will rise up to try and stop anyone who dares to show the house of Jacob, God’s church, their sins, in an attempt to "restore the paths to dwell in.
