Christ Divested of the Personality of Humanity and Glorified

PDF Notes

Cumbered with humanity [as a human on earth], Christ could not be in every place personally; [as a human on earth] therefore it was altogether for their advantage that He should leave them [from earth to go to Heaven], go to His father [in Heaven], and send the Holy Spirit [an agency from Heaven: John 14:12 Quoted, “By this, Christ did not mean […]

How and Why I was Disfellowshipped from the Seventh-day Adventist Church

PDF Notes

It’s very possible that the others involved in this quandary will remember the details a bit differently than I do, but this is how I recall the situations to the best of my ability in a succinct way.

If you too have a story to share, please send that story through an email here.

Toward the end of 2014 I was studying the book of Revelation to teach it as a series of verse by verse lectures. I knew Revelation 3:14 would give me trouble in my current understanding as a senior […]

Another Probation

PDF Notes

Here the mysterious cup trembled in His hand. Here the destiny of a lost world was hanging in the balance. Should He wipe the blood drops from His brow, and root from His soul the guilt of a perishing world, which was placing Him, all innocent, all undeserving, under the penalty of a just law? Should He refuse to become man’s substitute and surety? refuse to give him another trial, another probation? Ms42-1897.7

Separation from His Father, the punishment for transgression and sin, was to fall upon Him in order to magnify God’s law and testify […]

“He That is in You” by Christina Hilton, 16 Years of Age

Download PDF

(I asked Christina if I could share this paper, which she had written for a high-school homework assignment… praise God. =)

Can we overcome sin and, if we can, how? Revelation chapters two, three, and twenty-one all say “To him that overcometh”… and go on to describe the rewards of the overcomer. Why would it say that if overcoming is impossible? How can we overcome? The answer is in 1 John 4:4 which says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is […]

Judy Palermo’s Experience in the SDA Conference Church

The following, as written by Judy:
I found a copy of the Great Controversy in a thrift shop & read about the Sabbath. I made the Sabbath as my day of rest & the horses had off from work too. I found an SDA church nearby so I started attending. I was an ex-New Ager & an atheist so I did not really know anything about Christian things.
 
In this church right off the bat I was told that I did not dress very well or pray very well. […]

An Open Letter to Seventh-day Adventist Pastors

PDF Notes

The reader will find below a numbered series of thoughts that were put together by a currently employed Seventh-day Adventist pastor in an effort to establish the doctrine of the trinity using mostly Ellen White’s writings. These thoughts came to me in the order following, and were originally numbered as they are. I’ve added responses in blue considering the context of each passage with additional Bible verses.

1st:

We cannot define or understand the Holy Spirit beyond what inspiration says.

50 Bible Questions About the Trinity

PDF notes

  1. Where are the words ‘trinity,’ triune,’ triunity,’ or the like in the Bible?
  2. Can we find  ‘God the Son’ in the Bible?
  3. Can we find  ‘God the Spirit’ in the Bible?
  4. Where is the term ‘co-eternal’ in the Bible?
  5. Where is the term ‘co-equal’ in the Bible?
  6. If the salient words or phrases of the trinity are not found in the Bible, where did this idea come from?
  7. In an Old Testament prophecy of Jesus Christ in the Bible, when it refers to the “counsel of peace” which is “between them both,” who are the both? If it was God the Father and His Son, where was the Spirit?

Angels Ascending and Descending

PDF Notes

Based on Genesis 28 and John 1, the following quotes are quite interesting:

      • Genesis 28:10 Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.
      • Genesis 28:11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.
      • Genesis 28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold […]

The Fraudhead

PDF notes

THE PROBLEMS:

The “counsel of peace” was between them both, which refers to the Father and His Son, as it reads in Zechariah 6:13 (see also Patriarchs and Prophets 34.1, and The Great Controversy 493.1). The enemy, satan, wanted to be “like the Most High” (Isaiah 14:14). He wanted to be as the “Son of God” who had been involved in the plans of the creation of man (see Hebrews 1:1-2, and Ephesians 3:9). 

The enemy, as a created son of God, was not allowed into the counsel of peace between the Father and […]

Saturday or Sunday – Does it Matter?

PDF here

With God the Father as Creator through His Son, look at the first gift of time God gave to man.

Saturday, seventh day of the week; different theories explain name, including that it comes from the Latin Saturni dies, or day of the god Saturn, and that it was named Saturn’s-day by Babylonians after Saturn, one of the 5 planetary bodies known to them; Jewish Sabbath, or holy day; (Compton’s Interactive Encyclopedia).

Friday, sixth day of the week; name derived from Frigg’s-day; Frigg (or Freya), the wife of the god Odin,… […]

Song Lyrics for Your Creativity

Would you be interested to put these lyrics to music? I was asked if I could, but I thought it best to extend the invitation!

Oh what Love, Oh Love Divine
The Father gave His Son to die
To die for you and I, and give us life!
A life of joy, of joy sublime
To live and live throughout all time
Because the Son of God is yours and mine.

Oh thank you Lord, you died for me
Please take my heart, for Yours I want to be
You left Your Father’s throne above
Came to share Your life of love
You loved and died,
The death of mine own guilt
To offer me a life of mansions built.
Oh! Indeed what Love Divine,
The Son of God is yours and mine.

God gave His only begotten Son
Gifted whole Heaven, through the One
Oh what Love, Oh Love Divine
For you and I to live throughout all time
Because the Son of […]

Everyone is Shocked!

I showed all the studies to all my church members and they are studying out your notes. Everyone is shocked [and] they promised not to mention it to the pastor yet. I don’t want him to know yet, [as] I thought it best to let everyone study it out on their own first. Be in prayer…!

What an Eye Opener! – With Robin Morgan

Hi Daniel.

Thank you for you quick response to my email. Thank you for the information you have offered.
My wife and I have learned a lot from watching your videos and those of Allen’s. It has only been within the last 12 months that we found that we were Tritheistic in our thinking and therefore Trinitarian. Wow!!! What an eye opener.
We were born and bred SDA’s but resigned from the church in the early 1990’s and have been home churching ever since. We hold to the KJB and the SOP only and now thanks to you and Allen we know the truth about God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ. The truth on this has been staring at us in the books all our lives yet we still did not see it. I […]

Angel Message a Life Changer – Lisa N

A woman stared at me while at an airport. I looked at her, nodded, smiled a bit, and turned away. She came up to me and asked, “Is your name Daniel Mesa?“ We talked for a good 30 minutes or so and I then shared some of the messages with her that I had just posted up on line (YouTube.com/RevelationWithDaniel). Following, is her response:

“I still want to tell you what God communicated to me for the first time in all my years of being a sda when I watched the angel video 1 the first time I was watching it.

God spoke to me in almost a divine revelation and it wasn’t […]
