The Prophetic Pattern & Ellen White – Juan Carlos Contreras


Standing on the platform of truth Pioneer health and missions Good morning once again and happy Sabbath and of course we We’re about to get into the study of God’s Word But before we we want to invite Only want to ask for his helped for us to comprehend his word this morning. So let us pray Dear Heavenly Father Jehovah. We thank you for this blessed Sabbath day We thank you for another day of life We thank you for bringing us here safely. And now as we partake of your word, we ask that you bless The reading and the hearing of it in that we can follow the instruction That we will be finding in your word this morning. We thank you and we ask this in the name of Jesus your son amen Well, I Many of us are familiar with the prophetic gift among Adventists, correct? I Have read a number of Studies on the prophetic gift I Have heard a number of presentations on the prophetic gift but when I was introduced to this Pattern or this study on the prophetic gift It fascinated me and it succeeded or exceeded Anything that I had looked at prior to this presentation? I Was first I first heard this presentation a number of years ago. It’s been quite a long time And it’s always been my desire to to share it So I am thankful that finally I got the opportunity to share this study with you. So I pray that you are blessed So one way that Jehovah chooses to communicate with mankind is Mankind or What I’m trying to say is that he chooses either a woman or a man to give a message or bury message to his people such are commonly known as what profits or prophetess How many of you are a prophet How many you are a prophet have you been given a message to bear Yes I understand that we as a movement or people are prophets however, not in the sense of Bible prophets in the book of Revelation the Protestant world is identified by what symbol? As anyone Oh in Revelation 19:20 We find that the the Protestant world or product up. Ah state Protestant America is identified by the symbol of a false prophet Were you aware of that Why because the message they bear in God’s name is false So the symbol of a false prophet is given to apostate Protestant America In the Bible Not all we’re giving the prophetic gift nonetheless I’m sorry in the Bible Some were giving the prophetic gift Although we don’t find writings or portions of scripture that tell us that these prophets actually pinned Anything in the Bible? Can you think of one? Who was a prophet in the Bible that Did not write anything in the scriptures John the Baptist someone mentioned Jonah Deborah Quite a few right? We also read about the prophetess named Anna and Luke 236 who although given the gift of prophecy we find no writing of theirs in the Holy Scriptures the same for Philips daughters who we read prophesied So we see that a number of prophets did not write anything in the Bible Will you agree? Nonetheless, they were given a message to bear and I dare say that their message was life and death Because if we disregarded that message then the result would be death This message was divinely Divine in its origin in the Bible. We find the following pattern a prophet who has been given a message to proclaim that involves time but what kind of time prophetic time and one that rises after the prophetic time ends to gather the remnant So there’s a prophet that proclaims a message and his message is one of prophetic time and at the end of that prophetic time a prophet arises to gather the remnant Another fascinating fact is That their names has much to do with their particular ministry in other words their name Corresponds with their ministry and keep this in mind. We will start with Enoch Enoch means what? Dedicated was Enoch a dedicated man We all have heard about Enoch what happened to Enoch? He was translated he walked with God correct in Genesis 521 reread and enoch lived sixty and five years and begat methuselah We read That inna this dedicated one He begat a son and a son was his son’s name was well Methuselah and what does the name Methuselah mean? Now this is what I found okay man of the javelin or missile What is a javelin, I don’t know if I’m pronouncing it right or Missile, what are these items? They’re items of what of war right to strike? Correct So this was Methuselah named javelin or missile We know that what happened when Methuselah died The flood The missile or the javelin in figure till he was speaking was lodged Correct The flood came and who did God use to gather a faithful remnant? Noah and what does the name Noah mean? Does anyone know rest Comfort or consolation this with the name rest or Noah means in Genesis 529 we read and He called his name Noah saying This same shall comfort us in our work and in the toll of her head of our hands Which cometh because of the ground which Jehovah hath cursed. So here we read that Noah Noah saying this same shall comfort us in work So Noah His name is comfort Okay. So the remnant worth comforted through Noah if they find comfort Yes Right, and of course, we also know that Noah was also involved in the proclamation of the message right calling Those during his time to repent and to get on board inside the ark right The next mouthpiece Jehovah chose to warn the people of what was coming also relating to time Who was who was it? Can you guys think during that same time? All right after Noah? Abram right before his name was changed Abram and what is the meaning of the name Abram? Father is exalted We know of course that later Jehovah changed his name to Abraham but Abram meant or Yeah meant father is exalted. Now the question is, how was a father exalted? How did Abraham ik exalt our Heavenly Father Through pure worship or true worship before Adam and Eve were expelled from Eden Where did they worship? When Adam and Eve were still in Eden, where did they worship in the garden? It was after their expulsion that Jehovah led Abram to exalt him by exclusive devotion Everywhere Abram called home. He erected what an altar and dedication in worship to the true God Does the father was exalted by the life of Abram So he kept The knowledge of the true God going even after Adam and Eve had been expelled from the Garden of Eden. This is also very interesting and I hope I don’t forget because in the Garden of Eden Adam and Eve worship, but after they were expelled the place of worship Transferred or was changed in now Abram or Abraham were worship and Altars, right the erected altars as a form of worship But we know that that later as well change So what was given to Abram? Genesis 15:13 reads and He said unto Abram know of a surety that thy seed shall be stranger in a land That is not theirs and shall serve them and they shall afflict them for how long for four hundred years So that was a prophetic time or the time they’re 400 years and he’s Who the God raised to gather the remnant and deliver his people after those 400 years were concluded Moses And Moses means to pull out or draw out of water That’s what the name Moses means and Exodus to 10 we read the following and the child grew and she Brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son and she called his name Moses and she said because I drew him out of the water So again, we see how Moses Corresponds the name corresponds with this ministry, right? Because he deliver not only was he delivered in a basket in water But also he delivered the Israelites through what? to the Red Sea through water The next prophet with a time message is Jeremiah what is Jeremiah mean Jeremiah equals Jehovah is exalted now Jeremiah was living in a terrible time period Because the whole entire nation of Israel, I’m sure there was a remnant Were in apostasy, correct? and in Jeremiah 25:11 we read and This whole land shall be a desolation and an astonishment And these nations shall serve the king of Babylon for how long? Seventy years Do you think that that was a difficult message to bear to God’s people? You’re going to become slaves or you’re going to become servants of the Babylonians and You will be servants to the Babylonians for 70 years Who did God raise up together his remnant? After those 70 years or yeah during that time Daniel well, what does Daniel mean? God is my judge and Daniel 9:24 now before I read Daniel 9:24 Daniel was not also a gathering Prophet, but he also was a proclaiming prophet in other words. God gave him a message as well to declare Okay again, based on time a Message was given to Daniel based on time. So Daniel 9:24 reads Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city to finish the transgression And to make an end of sins and to make a reconciliation for iniquity and to bring in everlasting righteousness and to seal up the vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy In the verse 25 We read know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem Unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks and threescore and two weeks the street shall be built again and the wall even In troublous times how many of you have studied this prophetic? Message the seventy weeks And we haven’t we need to and we need to know how to share it because it proves That Jesus Christ was in fact the Messiah this prophetic time period Ended in the year 34 ad with Stephens Execution when Stephen was stone the nation of Israel Declared by that act that They were giving their complete back to Christ or to the Son of God their probationary period came to a close And now the message would go out to the nations in Daniel 9:26 we read and after the threescore in two weeks shall Messiah be cut off but not for himself and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and The sanctuary and the end thereof shall be with a flood and unto the end of the war desolations are determined now the name that the name Daniel What was the meaning of that name again? God is my judge which corresponds with Daniel’s ministry as a matter of fact in his book We find that the king Nebuchadnezzar was judge Correct We also find the judgment scene in chapter 7 verse 9 Where the Ancient of Days sits and the books are open? We also find Michael standing up after the king of the north comes to his Inn and Daniel 11:45 indeed Daniel the prophet wrote much in respect to judgment Daniel was not only a prophet that the carry message but as I mentioned earlier he was to a gathering prophet Daniel also mentions the rebuilding of Jerusalem. Who did you who did Jehovah raise to carry this out? Because that was a prophetic statement based upon time The rebuilding of the city of Jerusalem and what it got raised to rebuild the city Nehemiah right Nehemiah and what is the meaning of Nehemiah Jehovah comforts? Do you feel that the people of God felt comfort when they for so many years had been? Foreigners and now they see their city being rebuilt. Once again, I’m sure they were comforted by that Then you also mentioned the anointing of the most holy Who’s the most holy? This referred to – – the Christ or the Anointed One Giving commencement to the ministry or his ministry who did God raise for the anointing of his son? John the Baptist Sir John Jehovah has shown favor or has been merciful We also read in Daniels prophetic time, there will be seven weeks also sixty-two weeks after the sixty-two weeks Who would be cut off? The Messiah Christ this this took this took place in the year 31 ad And the Apostle John stood there by the mother of Christ to show favor or mercy Who the Jehovah raised up after the seventy weeks were up Remember they were the seventy weeks came to a conclusion or to a close Right after Stephens execution. So who did God raise up? But before Paul, what was his name Saul of Course we know later. Jesus changed his name to to Paul right Saul. What does that mean? Asked for was he asked for was he chosen was he called? Yes So here we see that he gathers a remnant as well another important factor that I forgot to mention I Think yeah, I did mention it is That their message was a life-and-death message a life-and-death message If we will receive that message We would receive life and if we rejected that message, the result would be death Right. What was the message that no embarr to the people? repent Get in the ark What was the result of disobeying? Death All these prophets had a message if we disregarded the message and then by default we were choosing death Some people say or some people have the thaw the mentality that I rather not choose But by not choosing your choosing we’re choosing Right, but not acting that’s a choice Were choosing not to act that’s a choice so by default The result we will reap the result of that another prophetic message that We find recorded in Daniel and Daniel. Where is that fell? Where’s another prophetic message found In Daniel Daniel chapter 8 verse 14, right? And what is that I’m sorry effort. Let me read this real quick But the Lord said unto him go thy way for he is a chosen vessel. This is in regards to soul Unto me to bear my name before the Gentiles and kings and the children of Israel So again, Saul was chosen to bury message to the Gentiles Now going back to the prophetic statement found in Daniel chapter 8 verse 14 and he said unto me unto 2300 days then shall the sanctuary be what? Cleansed now this is a prophetic time correct that Daniel declares that God gives to the prophet Daniel and This is referring to the two 2300 days When did the 2300 days commenced I mean ended I’m sorry In 1844 by now, I believe we have seen a pattern have we not Who did God raise up at the end of the two thousand and three hundred days Yeah, William Miller but our prophet to gather the remnant Now then why Kind of white what does Ellen mean? Well, we have to follow the same right if it’s gonna fit it’s gonna fit well, what do you say Ellen bright shining light You see that Now I what was Alan but her following named after Alan before white Gold right And what is uh, what does gold mean? Gold and of course we know white means white, right? Well before Ellen White took her took on her husband’s name, what was it Harman and What is Harman mean Harman am I pronouncing it, right Harman Solder warrior Who was Ellen White as a child don’t recall her age, but she was young Who is she a part of and I’m speaking in religious? Terms The Methodist but right after Right after Methodism because she was expelled out of the Methodist Church, right? No, yes, she was expelled from the Methodist Church But the middle rights She attended William Miller’s or one of William Miller’s Presentations or talks? She has septa the message and This was prior to her getting married so her name was Ellen Harman, right and That name means soldered or warrior Well We know From what we read that the millerite movement was hip and I’m trying to recall Ellen White’s words But let me Let me just say it this way she states that the Miller right movement was a powerful demonstration of the power of God In other words, the millerite movement movement is also known as the great religious awakening They were very aggressive in their preaching work and Very zealous And that when I say aggressive I don’t mean it I don’t mean it in a negative Way, I mean they were non-stop Proclaiming the message and of course, they believed that Jesus would come in 1843 at first and they believed it with all their are and So this was their experience there were soldiers at war And I found out I find that very interesting So again, we see that after or before Ellen Ellen married James White She was a messenger to the Miller writes all those she received her first vision after 1844 I believe she received her first vision in 1846 So there were still the Miller rights? her first stage as we saw a Christian warrior and As I mentioned the middle rights were known for their zeal and aggressive preaching work now the name corresponds to their ministry and We found out Allen means what a light Gold gold and what do we read in revelation 19 verse 8 and To her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen clean and white for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints Now when we read the read that read this verse and we read into her The verse is referring to the church okay, and to her to the church was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen and in revelation 3:18 we read I Counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire We see gold air tried in the fire that thou may s be rich and white raiment that thou may s be clothed and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve that thou May is see If we read sister White’s writings we know all those who were or she penned millions of words This was her message This was her message. This was the message that she was trying to convey to God’s people the righteousness of Christ and the importance of us Wearing that garment they’ll be but because without that garment What what happens Without that garment were found we are found naked and In the parable in the book of Matthew I recall I believe the one without a wedding garment is What happens to such one? He’s taken and thrown into outer darkness who allowed you to come into the banquet without a wedding garment That’s the illustration given there and so that was Alan White’s ministry and as we saw Her name fit the description it corresponded with her ministry Also, I find very interesting I didn’t I didn’t put it here Adam and Eve in the beginning They worship in the Garden of Eden Abraham by his example, and I’m sure by his message Pointed people To the correct way or true way of worship and he erected altars, correct and then later Moses was given a pattern and That pattern that was given to him was what? The sanctuary and they built one in the desert. It was a tent right and So by their example and I believe as well by their teaching they were pointing people to the correct pure worship to the one true God When Jesus died Now that place of worship from the earthly sanctuary Was no more Correct. We know that when Jesus died what happened to the veil? It was torn in other words Jehovah’s presence was not no more found are in and so now that worship transferred her change were to to the heavenly sanctuary And we know that transpired right after Jesus left Well We talked about Ellen White’s ministry. What happened in 1844 another transfer occurred? right Now the worship Was the true worship Or those worshiping the correct way, I would say and some are gonna probably crucify me for that but I Can’t think of a better way to say it. So that’s what came to mind now that it’s transferred Yes to the heavenly sanctuary but to the second apartment of the heavenly sanctuary the most holy place So you see how the dispensations and every dispensation this has taken place or this changes taking place And I also found that very fascinating and Alan white pointed people through her visions that Jesus had made the move from the holy place to the most holy place and That’s what we are to be found. Not literally Figure two figure Turkey because God’s people follow the lamb Wherever he goes, so our minds need to be found a worshipping in the most holy place and if our minds are there all our Being will be there and that’s why it’s very important That as we walk through the sanctuary as we understand these concepts a change takes place Not only inwardly but outwardly and As a matter of fact if a change takes place in wordly Then the outward would only show So I Prayed it was a short study, but I was fascinating when I first saw this I was like there is no doubt That Ellen White was risen by God at the end of the 23 through 2300 days to gather a remnant Ensure and sure enough. There was only a remnant left right after the great disappointment only a few believed that their their their views That there was a mistake in their views, but that there were still a God in heaven many Rejected the beloved entire believe in God But as we read it was a cleansing, right Because it only proved that when Jesus didn’t come They turned their backs But those that love God with all their heart They didn’t turn their backs they rather examine what they were teaching but they had believed and he did this through prayer and through the study of the scriptures and Hopefully sometime I will show I will share that Jesus there’s a if you read Luke chapter 21, it tells you where we’re at in history Everything outlined in Luke chapter 21 has almost happened Has almost happened and where it talks about him coming with clouds it happened he came with clouds He did come with clouds, but he didn’t come with clouds to the earth. He came with clouds to To the second apartment I was above the heavenly sanctuary that’s also very Fascinating study because it shows everyone here or anyone that exposed to that study what that is shadow of a doubt Where we are in the prophetic map So I pray that you were blessed and That we can take in the counsel that has been given to us through the Ministry of sister white Knowing that if The message of all given through the prophets was a life-and-death message. Well, then that hasn’t changed, right? So and it is our Our responsibility to Pick up those books and read them sure. We need to read the Bible. I’m not excluding the Bible by no means whatsoever But there’s counsel there Exclusively for us the people of God, so thank you. And with that I would like to close with with prayer Dear Heavenly Father thank you for Your love and And again allowing us to see this divine pattern How you have chosen people in the past? prophets and prophet is to Declare a message and father. We want to be found among those that obey your voice through The message is not about the messenger. It’s about the message We know that the message is from you So father I pray that you be with us Through the rest of the Sabbath day Help us and keep us is my prayer in Jesus name Amen Standing on the platform of truth I’m here health and missions
