1844 & The Final Onslaught
1.In Bible Prophecy what does a day often equate to? Numbers 14:34 “After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each ___ for a ____, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.” Ezekiel 4:6 “And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each ___ for a ___ __.” Psalm 77:5 “I have considered the _____ of old, the ______ of ancient times.” NOTE: Based on the context, days in prophecy equal literal years. 2.How is the year 1844 relevant? Daniel 8:13-14 “Then I heard one saint speaking, and another

1

saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice , and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be _______ ____.” NOTE: From Daniel 8:14 we come to the year 1844. (See Study Guide #1) 3.How does Daniel Chapter Nine relate to the prophecy found in Daniel 8:14? Daniel 9:24 “_________ ______ are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” NOTE: The starting point of the prophecy here in Daniel 9:24, and the starting point of Daniel 8:14 are the same, (See Study Guide #1) The prophecy of Daniel 8:14 is the larger prophecy of which the Seventy weeks of Daniel 9:24, is contained therein. The starting point is 457 BC, when the decree went forth to restore and to rebuild Jerusalem (See Daniel 9:25) 4.How do Jewish Rabbi’s look upon the Prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27? “May the bones of the hands and the bones of the fingers decay and decompose of him who turns the pages of the book of Daniel, to find out the time of Daniel 9:24-27, and may his memory rot from off the face of the earth forever” (Talmudic Law, p.978, Section 2, Line 28) NOTE: Evidently, this prophecy bothers those who are fervent in their Jewish devoition. Why would the Talmud attack with

2

such anger a part of the Old Testament? Is there something there that they are trying to hide? 5.We know that there was a Sanctuary on earth in times past, is there any significance to the Sanctuary today? Hebrews 8:1-2 “We have such a high priest who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the ________, and of the ____ ____________, which the Lord pitched and not man.” NOTE: There can be no doubt that the Bible speaks of a sanctuary in heaven. The Bible says that Jesus presides as the High Priest of this sanctuary, and that it is the original or true tabernacle, the plans for the copy were give to Moses to help teach the Israelites the gospel message way back in Old Testament times. Now this doctrine of the heavenly sanctuary, where Christ is officiating as High Priest, is a doctrine which is heavily under attack in the world. Why? Because it sets Jesus Christ back into the center as the only Savior in the world and it also tells us about His ministry and where He is officiating, in the Holy or the Most Holy. This is very important. Because according to Seventh-Day Adventist doctrine, 1844, the time of Judgment must be Yon Kippur, he must have gone into the Most Holy. Now if that is so, then the Seventh-Day Adventist Church has a peculiar message to the world. One explaining the Sanctuary number one, the ministry of Jesus, the judgment hour, but it also makes them the Herald of the final message. That’s a problem. You can’t have one denomination being a herald of a final message. You have to take that denomination away and make it part of the pot of ecumenism. Nobody has the right to say “we have a final message for the world”. That would be “exclusivity” in the thinking of the world. So 1844 is heavily under attack and the doctrine that Jesus Christ entered the Most Holy in 1844, “then shall the sanctuary be cleansed” anti-typical day of atonement, is also heavily under attack.

6.What other movements began around the year 1844? ANSWER: Interesting events around 1844. Karl Marx joined “the league of the Just” in 1842 (later “league of Communists”). He started writing the “Communist Manifesto” in 1844, what does that say? It says, “there is no God,” let alone Jesus Christ, let’s get rid of him. So Jesus Christ is removed. At the same time another message goes into the world. Darwin, the origin of species, “the origin of species-that mystery of mysteries,” when did he start writing it? This is the forward to the origin of species, and you will find something interesting, “I allowed myself to speculate on the subject, and drew up some short notes; these I enlarged in 1844,” this is very interesting, the second time we find 1844 in a very prominent place where we have an end time lying delusion going into the world. And there’s a little group that says no. There are many others as well, but they don’t have the fullness of the three angel’s message nor do they have the sanctuary message. Isn’t it interesting that the greatest representation at the United Nations, the Baha’i faith, was found when? By the Bah, there’s the date, 1844. The Bahai faith was founded in 1844 by Baha’ u ‘llah (a faith founded by the Bab, meaning gate).” So 1844, we finally get to a point where the world is ready for a movement which will say, “All churches unite.” Who’s behind this movement, that’s another story. I think we figured that out by now, because, who has the power in the United Nations, they or Roman Catholicism? Roman Catholicism has the power, so this is just a tool. But 1844 is an interesting faith. The Baha’i faith upholds the fundamental unity of all religions, that’s their first criterion. Independent investigation of truth, etc. and all these interesting things, we’ve dealt with some of these already. Attainment of world peace. 7.What are some bedrock principles upon which the Bahai faith are placed? Dan Wheatley writes: “As a baha’i I see myself as a world

4

citizen and I strongly believe that the world is moving closer to a united global community, a human family… ‘Unity in diversity may sound like just another sound-bite, a trite piece of verbal cosmetics in an age where content is less important than presentation. The reality is that the concept of unity in diversity is a deeply spiritual concept, it is a key tenet of the Baha’i faith and it is an essential concept to bear in mind when trying to find solutions to a wide range of global problems.” Dan Wheatley, “Unity in Diversity,” The Festival Week of the New Group of World Servers (New York, NY: Lucis Trust, n.d.), p. 12-13. 8.When were the Sinaitic manuscripts discovered? ANSWER: Here’s another interesting date, 1844, the Sinaitic manuscript, (Codex Sinaiticus) is discovered in Mt. Sinai, and forms the basis for all modern translations which remove Jesus Christ as God and as the only savior of mankind. Do you think it’s chance, do you think this is chance? This is very strange. So at the same time when this message of separation and worship God and give glory to him, there is only one Savior, one gospel, one means of salvation, all these things come together and the date is 1844. 9.What are the world’s most intelligent people saying about the necessity of uniting? “Peace will be impossible without the taming of fundamentalism through a Untied Religion that professes faithfulness only to the global spirituality and to the health of this planet.” – From Muller’s article in a 1997 Defend Life Magazine. “The New World Religion” says Alice A. Bailey “must be based upon those truths which have stood the test of the ages … they are steadily taking shape in human thinking, and for them the United Nations fights.” “My great personal dream is to get a tremendous alliance between all the major religions and the UN.” Robert Muller.

NOTE: So the churches come together, two messages in the world. Now, the Seventh-day Adventist church also has the message, “do not accept the mark of the beast!” “Sabbath is the day of the Lord, worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea, and the springs of water.” Papacy comes and says, “no, you must listen to me, I’ll tell you when to worship, you’ll worship on the first day of the week because I am the authority in your life.” 10.How does the encyclical ‘Dies Domini’ relate to the observance of Sunday? And so the papacy on May 7, 1998 issued this famous apostolic letter Dies Domini of the holy father John Paul where he asks for Sunday legislation. Sunday: the Primordial Feast, Revealing the Meaning of Time. The spiritual and pastoral riches of Sunday, as it has been handed on to us by tradition, are truly great.” Well at least he admits it’s not from the Bible, right? “Significantly, the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that ‘The Sunday celebration of the Lord’s Day and his Eucharist is at the heart of the Church’s life.’” (Dies Domini). Sunday Times London 5-7-1998, “Pope launches crusade to save Sunday: Make it clear that Sunday must not be worked since it must be celebrated as the Lord’s day.” 11.How important is Sunday to the Roman Catholic System? ANSWER: “The Sunday … is purely a creation of the Catholic Church.” American Catholic Quarterly Review, January 1883. “Sunday … is a law of the Catholic Church alone…” American Sentinel (Catholic) June 1893. “… the observance of Sunday by Protestants is an homage

6

they pay, in spite of themselves, to the authority of the Catholic Church.” Monsignor Louis Segar, Plain Talk about the Protestantism of Today. P . 213. Jesuit Catechism: Q. What if the Holy Scriptures command one thing, and the Pope another contrary to it? A. The Holy Scriptures must be thrown aside. Q. What is the Pope? A. He is the Vicar of Christ, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, and there is but one Judgment-Seat belonging to God and the Pope.” (Roy Livesey, 1998 Understanding the New Age: World Government and World Religion (Chichester, England: New Wine Press, p. 104.) “Not the Creator of the Universe, in Genesis 2:1-3, but the Catholic Church ‘can claim the honor of having granted man a pause to his work very seven days.’ S.C. Mosna, ‘Storia della Domenica”, 1969, pp. 366-367 “Reason and common sense demand the acceptance of One or the other of these alternatives: either Protestantism and the keeping holy of Saturday, or Catholicity and the keeping holy of Sunday. Compromise is impossible.” The Catholic Mirror, December 23, 1893 “Sunday is to this day the acknowledged offspring of the Catholic Church, as spouse of the Holy Ghost, without a word of remonstrance from the Protestant world.” Editorial, The Catholic Mirror (Baltimore), September 23, 1893. “You may read the Bible from Genesis too Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, A day we never sanctify.” (Cardinal Gibbons. The Faith of our Fathers – 92nd ed. Rev. Baltimore: John Murphy Company, p. 89).

12.Some of those statements are pretty old. Rome has changed today, hasn’t she? “If they truly hold to the scriptures alone as their standard, they would be observing the seventh day as enjoined by the Scriptures. Yet they not only reject the observance of the Sabbath enjoined in the written word, but they have adopted and do practice the observance of Sunday, for which they have only the tradition of the Church. Consequently the claim of ‘Scripture alone as the standard,’ fails; and the doctrine of ‘Scripture and tradition’ as essential, is fully established, the Protestants themselves being judges. this was the inconsistency of the Protestant practice with the Protestant profession that gave to the Catholic Church her long-sought and anxiously desired ground upon which to condemn Protestantism and the whole Reformation movement as only a selfishly ambitious rebellion against the Church authority. And this is today the position of the respective parties to this controversy. Today, as this document shows, this is the vital issue upon which the Catholic Church arraigns Protestantism, and upon which she condemns the course of popular Protestantism as being “indefensible”, self-contradictory, and suicidal.” What will these Protestants, what will this Protestantism, do?” Now let’s see what the editor of Mary online made with this letter, December 2003, and take note: “The challenge issued by Rome over 100 years ago remains: Either the Catholic Church is right, or the Seventh Day Adventists are right. There can be no other choice.” NOTE: This is a true statement. There is no other choice between tradition and truth. 13.What does the New Age World say about the uniting of World Religions? New Ager, Natalie Banks, states: “Looking below the seething

8

surface of outer events we become aware of the spreading move towards the elimination of the sectarian separativeness and an increasing distaste for reliance on hard and fast doctrine and dogma. At the same time there is an intensified search for a deeper understanding of the inner teachings and their application to the enormous problems of today.” NOTE: So what are they looking for? Get rid of those doctrines which separate. Can you see how the Sabbath is becoming a mighty issue? How we will have to stand for truth and righteousness, and Jesus Christ is to be just scrapped in the shredder. This is a total onslaught on Jesus Christ through his people. Thomas Ehrenzeller, a director of the World Federalists, asserts: “A growing number of people… are sponsoring a backlash against the wave of religious fundamental fanaticism… The right course to take is that which will lead to a new world of unity and world law.” Alice A. Bailey said the same, “The day is dawning when all religions will be regarded as emanating from one great spiritual source… They will accept the same truths, not as theological concepts but as essential to spiritual living… of brotherhood and of human relations; Thus the expressed aims and efforts of the United Nations will be eventually brought to fruition and a new church of God, gathered out of all religions and spiritual groups, will unitedly bring to an end the great heresy of separateness. Love, unity, and the Risen Christ will be present, and He will demonstrate to us the perfect life… the enlightened people… will not tolerate authoritarianism in any church or totalitarianism in any political system; they WILL NOT ACCEPT or PERMIT the rule of any body of men who undertake to tell them what they must believe in order to be saved…” NOTE: Here separation is deemed a terrible thing, but God calls His people to separate from Babylon.

14.According to the Bible, through what person are we to come to God? Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in _____ other: for there is _____ other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” NOTE: Jesus Christ is the only one who brings salvation. Not humanism, not salvation by works, not philanthropy, only Christ. This elevation of humanism is a direct attack against Jesus Christ. 15.What do other mighty men and women of this world say about this last scenario? Robert Muller writes: “The world’s major religions must speed up dramatically their ecumenical movement and recognize the unity of their objectives in the diversity of their cults. Religions must actively cooperate to bring to unprecedented heights a better understanding of the mysteries of life and of our place in the universe. ‘My religion, right or wrong,’ and ‘My nation, right or wrong’ must be abandoned forever in the planetary age.” Bailey’s booklet advises: “There must be NO… distress over the DISAPPEARANCE of the old order.” Ok, “‘The good, the true and the beautiful’ is on its way, and for it MANKIND IS RESPONSIBLE, and not some outer divine intervention.” Alice A. Bailey. The Reappearance of the Christ. P . 13. Author John Randolph Price, author of The Superbeings, identifies Christians in this statement: “There are some groups who continue to cling to the absurd idea that man is a miserable sinner and worm of the dust.” He also notifies us that TWO AND ONE-HALF BILLION people will be killed.”

Prince Philip, he says that, “in the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.” Ted Turner, chairmen of the Better World Society, called Christians “bozos” and “losers.” And he also said: “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” Ted Turner CNN www.tetrahedron.org. 16.What are the Georgia Guidestones and what is written on them? “On one of the highest hilltops in Elbert County, Georgia stands a huge granite monument. Engraved in eight different languages on the four giant stones that support the common capstone are 10 guides, or commandments. That monument is alternatively referred to as The Georgia Guidestones, or the American Stonehenge.” “The message is: 1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” That’s interesting, what might happen to the rest? 2. Guide reproduction wisely – improve fitness and diversity. 3. Unite humanity with a living new language. 4. Rule passion – faith – tradition – and all things with tempered reason. 5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts. 6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court. 7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials. 8. Balance personal rights with social duties. 9. Prize truth 10. Be not a cancer on the earth – Leave room for nature – Leave room for nature.”

NOTE: And then it says over here, the Georgia Guidestones, “Let these be guidestones to an age of reason” age of reason, now that’s an interesting statement because The Age of Reason was a book written by Thomas Paine. It’s intent was to destroy the Judeo-Christian beliefs upon which the USA Republic was founded. 17.What will God do to put an end to these mighty men (See Revelation 6:14-17)? Daniel 2:44 “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall _______ be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and ________ all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” NOTE: This is why God acts so swiftly and quickly in the last days. He must consume the philosophies of this world, because it is pure, unadulterated, rebellion, in the form of occultism. 18.Who will have a place in this kingdom that shall never be destroyed? Daniel 7:18 “But the ______ of the most high shall take the kingdom and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.” NOTE: One day soon the world as we know it will be gone, and a new heaven and a new earth will be created.
