Norman Gonzales taught us to eat only foods displaying the pattern of 5 and 10.
These two letters Yod and He spell the Hebrew word “Yah” the short form of “Yehovah”, see #3050 and 3068.
These two letters have the numerical value of 10 and 5 respectively.
We need to judge foods not only by their appearance, but also by their electro-chemical impact upon our body’s chemistry, whether they be “exothermic”, electron releasing giving off heat energy, or “endothermic”, electron absorbing-absorbing heat energy giving you a chilling sensation while dissipating intellectual prowess, gradually decreasing cellular membrane voltage.
An inspirational thought
“The number of sections in a fruit or petals on a flowering bud, are an expression from the genes, a parallel reflection of the instruction set controlling and describing the molecular configuration, which determines the resulting electro-polarity, if the reaction will absorb or release electrons.” = given after kneeling and praying, as I was arising from my knees, the prayer “why do foods with the pattern of 5 and 10 give energy, and those that don’t take energy, precisely how?”
This is life in the physics world, and death in the physics world, cellular membrane voltage high, plenty of ATP and LIFE, zero volts on the cell membrane is a dead cell.
Obedience to Elohim’s law in every respect would save men from intemperance, licentiousness, and disease of every type. No oneE can violate NATURAL LAW without suffering the penalty. Temperance p. 228

Elohim has a work to do in our world that many finite minds do not see
or understand, and when Elohim unfolds Truth to His people, and it does
not come in harmony with their ideas, many are ready to despise and
reject It. I entreat you, brethren, reverence your Bible. Plead with Elohim
for Light. Fast and pray in your closet upon your knees. Ask Elohim to lead
you into all Truth. Tell Him that you want the Truth as it is in Yehoshua.
It is not wise for one of these young men to commit himself to a decision
at this meeting, where opposition, rather than investigation, is the order
of the day. The Scriptures must be your study, then you will know that
you have the Truth. Open your heart that Elohim might write the Truth
upon its tablets.
Every diamond emitted light, bright, clear, and beautiful.
Inscribed upon the crown were these words, “All
who win me are happy, and shall have everlasting
Clipped from the link “The Two Crowns” , as these “diamonds” are the “precious jewels of Truth“.
When I first embraced these Truths, as I was learning, from Dr. Norman, my mind began to increase with light, as it’s voltages gradually increased, I discovered I could gradually begin to recall previously learned things, and gradually increased in power of association of previously learned knowledge to arrive at correct conclusions. It was like going from a brown dim light to a brighter and brighter light in intellectual powers, and ability to recite previously read things. I was very happy in the acquisition of knowledge and Truth, though I still have migraines, from the “powers of darkness” at work in this world in modern sorceric low dose poisoning of targeted individuals, which spills over into the general supply posisoning non-targeted “sheeple”, on grocers shelves, as TI’s are closely studied in their food purchasing habits, even though they “tamper-proof” their homes carefully when they leave. As your energies increase your esophagus even propels food more swiftly with greater strength propulsions, into your stomach. I even marveled long ago at the wonderful powers and abilities our Creator gave us in His creation of the human brain.
Proverbs 4:18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
Isaiah 33:15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
To souls that are EARNESTLY seeking for LIGHT, and that accept with GLADNESS EVERY RAY of Divine Illumination from His Holy Word,–to SUCH ALONE LIGHT will be given. It is through these souls that Elohim will reveal that LIGHT and POWER which will LIGHTEN the whole earth with His Glory. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 5, p. 729 (These are below, “I saw a company bowed down before the throne, deeply interested“)
From the Daystar Articles:
Before the throne was the Advent people, the Church, and the world. I saw a company bowed down before the throne, deeply interested while most of them stood up disinterested and careless. Those who were bowed before the throne would offer up their prayers and look to Yehoshua, then He would look to His Father and appeared to be pleading with Him. Then a Light came from the Father to His Son and from Him to the praying company. Then I saw an Exceeding Bright Light come from the Father to the Son and from the Son It waved over the people before the throne. But few would receive this Great Light. Many came out from under It and immediately resisted It. Others were careless and did not cherish the Light and It moved off from them. Some cherished It and went and bowed down before the throne with the little praying company. This company all received the Light, and rejoiced in It as their countenances shone with Its Glory.
Then Yehoshua would encourage them by raising His Glorious Right Arm, and from His Arm came a Glorious Light which waved over the Advent band, and they shouted, Hallelujah! Others rashly denied the Light behind them, and said that it was not God that had led them out so far. The Light behind them went out which left their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and got their eyes off the mark and lost sight of Yehoshua, and fell off the path down in the dark and wicked world below. It was just as impossible for them to get on the path again & go to the City, as all the wicked world which Elohim had rejected.

The medical missionary work is to the work
of the church as the Right Arm to the body. The
third angel’s message goes forth proclaiming the
commandments of Elohim and the faith of Yehoshua.
The medical missionary work is the gospel in
practise. All the lines of work are to be
harmoniously blended in giving the invitation, “Come,
for all things are now ready.”
Mal 2:4 And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that My covenant might be with Levi, saith Yehovah of hosts.
Mal 2:5 My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared Me, and was afraid before My Name.
Mal 2:6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with Me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
Mal 2:7 For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at His Mouth: for he is the messenger of Yehovah of hosts.
Mal 2:8 But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith Yehovah of hosts.
Mal 2:9 Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept My Ways, but have been partial in the law.
John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Yehoshua is the Messiah, the Son of Elohim; and that believing ye might have life through His Name.
a sower went forth to sow.
Mat 13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
Mat 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
Mat 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
Mat 13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
Mat 13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
Mat 13:28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
Mat 13:29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
Mat 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
As the reapers gathered the tares from the wheat, so today we, according to the pattern Dr. Norman Gonzales showed us, we toss the lemons with 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13 etc. away, and keep the lemons with 5 or 10 sections.
Deu 22:9 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled.
Isa 28:8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean. (defiled means “unclean”, as an adulterous women is “defiled”, so also is genetic hybridizing, resulting in non 5 & 10 pattern foods, while some revert to the pattern of exothermicity, 10 & 5)
Eze 7:22 My face will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute My secret place: for the robbers shall enter into it, and defile it.
Eze 7:23 Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence.
The solemn events which are now taking place belong to a SERIES OF EVENTS in the CHAIN of history, THE FIRST LINK of which IS CONNECTED with EDEN. Let the people of Elohim PREPARE for what is coming upon the earth. Extravagance in the use of means, selfishness, heresies, have taken the world captive. For centuries satanic agencies have been at work. Will they now give up without a struggle. SDA Bible Commentary Vol. 7 page 984, 985
2Ki 4:40 So they poured out for the men to eat. And it came to pass, as they were eating of the pottage, that they cried out, and said, O thou man of Elohim, there is death in the pot. And they could not eat thereof.
Satan gathered the fallen angels together to devise some way of doing the most possible evil to the human family. One proposition after another was made, till finally Satan himself thought of a plan. He would take the FRUIT OF THE VINE, also WHEAT, and OTHER THINGS given by Elohim as FOOD, and would CONVERT THEM INTO POISONS, which would RUIN man’s PHYSICAL, MENTAL, and MORAL POWERS, and so overcome the SENSES that Satan should have full control. Temperance p. 12
The same Elohim who GUIDES THE PLANETS WORKS IN THE FRUIT ORCHARD and in the VEGETABLE GARDEN, HE NEVER MADE A THORN, A THISTLE OR A TARE, these are Satan’s work, the result of DEGENERATION, introduced by him among the PRECIOUS THINGS; Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, p. 186

Y’hoshua impressed upon the people that they were to give no man a title of honor indicating his control of their conscience or their faith. The Desire of Ages p. 613
Since He gained knowledge as we may do, His intimate acquaintance with the scriptures shows how diligently His early years were given to the study of Elohim’s word.
…Apart from, the unholy ways of the world, He gathered stores of scientific knowledge from nature. The Desire of Ages p. 70
In these days we hear much about “higher education.” The TRUE higher “education” is that imparted by Him “in whom are hid all the TREASURES of wisdom and knowledge.” The Desire of Ages p. 465
Lowliness of heart is the strength that gives victory to the followers of the Messiah; it is the token of their connection with the courts above. The Desire of Ages p. 301
Our standing before Elohim depends, not upon the amount of LIGHT we have received, but upon THE USE WE MAKE of what we have. Thus even the heathen who choose the right as far as they can distinguish it are in a more favorable condition than are those who have had GREAT LIGHT, and profess to serve Elohim, but who DISREGARD the LIGHT, and by their daily life contradict their profession. The Desire of Ages p. 239
And it is only those who are following the LIGHT ALREADY GIVEN that can hope to receive the further illumination of the Spirit. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 5, p. 705
To souls that are EARNESTLY seeking for LIGHT, and that accept with GLADNESS EVERY RAY of Divine Illumination from His Holy Word,–to SUCH ALONE LIGHT will be given. It is through these souls that Elohim will reveal that LIGHT and POWER which will LIGHTEN the whole earth with His glory. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 5, p. 729
LIGHT comes to the soul through Elohim’s word, through His servants, or by the direct agency of His Spirit; but when ONE RAY of LIGHT is disregarded, there is a partial benumbing of the spiritual perceptions, and the second revealing of LIGHT is less clearly discerned. So the darkness increases, until it is night in the soul. The Desire of Ages p. 322
We should take one verse, and concentrate the mind on the task of ascertaining the thought which Elohim has put in that verse for us. We should dwell upon the thought until it becomes our own, and we know “what saith Y’hovah.” The Desire of Ages p. 390
The ELECTRIC POWER of the brain, promoted by mental activity, VITALIZES the whole system, and is thus an invaluable aid in resisting disease. Education p. 197
She wants the will to ELECTRIFY the NERVE POWER so that she may resist indolence. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 2, p. 428
…A great amount of milk and sugar. These clog the system, irritate the digestive organs, and affect the BRAIN. Anything that hinders the ACTIVE MOTION of the LIVING MACHINERY, affects the BRAIN VERY directly. Testimonies for the Church V. 2, p. 370
The sin of intemperate eating–eating too frequently, too much, and of rich, unwholesome food–destroys the HEALTHY ACTION of the DIGESTIVE ORGANS, and AFFECTS THE BRAIN, and PERVERTS the JUDGMENT, preventing rational, calm, healthy thinking and acting.–Yahdian Temperance and Bible Hygiene, p. 155
The BRAIN is the organ and instrument of the MIND and controls the whole body. In order for the other parts of the system to be healthy, the BRAIN must be healthy. And in order for the BRAIN to be healthy, THE BLOOD MUST BE PURE. If by correct habits of eating and drinking THE BLOOD IS KEPT PURE, the BRAIN will be properly nourished. Counsels on Health p. 586,587.
Under the INFLUENCE of UNHEALTHFUL FOOD the CONSCIENCE becomes STUPEFIED, the MIND becomes DARKENED, and its SUSCEPTIBILITY to IMPRESSIONS is BLUNTED…while a HEALTHY STATE OF MIND depends upon the NORMAL CONDITION of the VITAL FORCES, WHAT CARE should be exercised that neither STIMULANTS nor NARCOTICS be used. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 3, p. 569.
…the system is VITALIZED by the ELECTRICAL FORCE of the BRAIN to resist disease. Testimonies for the Church V.3, p. 157
…Stomach, liver, lungs, and brain are suffering for the want of DEEP, FULL INSPIRATIONS OF AIR, which would ELECTRIFY THE BLOOD and impart to it a BRIGHT, LIVELY COLOR, and which alone can KEEP IT PURE and give TONE AND VIGOR to every part of the LIVING MACHINERY. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 2, p. 67, 68
And Y’hovah Elohim formed man of the dust of the ground, and BREATHED into his nostrils the BREATH OF LIFE; and man became a LIVING soul. Genesis 2:7
Then he who had been borne on a litter to Y’hoshua rises to his feet with the ELASTICITY and STRENGTH OF YOUTH. The LIFE-GIVING BLOOD BOUNDS through his veins. Every ORGAN of his BODY SPRINGS INTO SUDDEN ACTIVITY. The GLOW OF HEALTH succeeds the pallor of approaching death. The Desire of Ages p. 269
The burden of sin, with its unrest and unsatisfied desires, is the foundation of their maladies. They can find no relief until they come to the Healer of the soul. The peace which He alone can give would impart vigor to the mind, and health to the body. The Desire of Ages p. 270.
All in whose nostrils was the BREATH OF LIFE… Genesis 7:22
But flesh with the LIFE thereof, which is the BLOOD thereof. Genesis 9:4
For the LIFE of the flesh is in the BLOOD: For it is the LIFE of all flesh; …for the LIFE of all flesh is the BLOOD thereof; Leviticus 17:11, 14
Your food is not of that simple, healthful quality which will make the best kind of blood. FOUL BLOOD will surely becloud the MORAL and INTELLECTUAL POWERS, and arouse and strengthen the BASER PASSIONS of your nature. Neither of you can afford a feverish diet, for it is at the expense of the health of the body and the prosperity of your own souls and the souls of your children. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 2, p. 404
…for the BLOOD is the LIFE; Deuteronomy 12:23
…and the Elohim in whose hand thy BREATH is. Daniel 5:23
Lungs and liver are diseased because she deprives herself of VITAL AIR. AIR is the free blessing of Heaven, calculated to ELECTRIFY the whole system. Testimonies for the Church V1,p. 701
The heated air coming from a stove is injurious, and were it not for the air coming in at the crevices of the windows, would be poisonous and destroy life. Stove heat destroys the VITALITY of the air, and weakens the lungs. The Place of Herbs in Rational Therapy p. 21
Elohim has not restrained the powers of darkness from carrying forward their deadly work of VITIATING THE AIR, ONE OF THE SOURCES OF LIFE AND NUTRITION, with a deadly miasma. Selected Messages Vol. 3, page 391, pr.03
Elohim, the great Architect, has built these lofty mountains, and their influence upon climate is a blessing to our world. They draw from the clouds enriching moisture. Mountain chains are Elohim’s great reservoirs, to supply the ocean with its water. These are the sources of the springs, rills, and brooks, as well as the rivers. They receive, in the form of RAIN and SNOW, the VAPORS with which the ATMOSPHERE is CHARGED, and communicate them to the parched plains below.
We should look upon the IRREGULAR MOUNTAINS of the earth as Elohim’S FOUNTAINS OF BLESSINGS from which flow forth the waters to supply all the living creatures. Every time I look upon the mountains I feel gratitude to Elohim….
Everything about us teaches us from day to day lessons of our Father’s love and of His power, and of His Laws that govern nature and that lie at the foundation of all government in heaven and in earth. Our High Calling, p.253
Elohim endowed man with so great VITAL FORCE that he has withstood the accumulation of disease brought upon the race in consequence of perverted habits, and has continued for SIX THOUSAND YEARS. This fact of itself is enough to evidence to us the STRENGTH and ELECTRICAL ENERGY that Elohim gave to man at his creation. It took more than TWO THOUSAND YEARS of crime and indulgence of base passions to bring bodily disease upon the race to any great extent. If Adam, at his creation, had not been endowed with TWENTY TIMES as much VITAL FORCE as men now have, the race, with their present habits of living in violation of NATURAL LAW, would have become extinct.
…Man came from the hand of his Creator, perfect and beautiful in form, and so filled with VITAL FORCE that it was more than a THOUSAND YEARS before his corrupt appetites and passions, and general violations of PHYSICAL LAW, were sensibly felt upon the race. … The VITAL FORCES have been greatly weakened by the indulgence of appetite and lustful passion. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 3, p. 138, 139
It took more than TWO THOUSAND YEARS of indulgence of appetite and lustful passions TO CREATE SUCH A STATE OF THINGS IN THE HUMAN ORGANISM as would lessen VITAL FORCE. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 4, p. 29
Elohim never designed that the present woeful condition of things should exist; it has been brought about through the GROSS VIOLATION of NATURE’S LAWS. Counsels on Health, p. 112
I know you will all please Elohim much better by seeking to build up your STRENGTH, and laying in a good stock of VITALITY that you can draw upon in time of need. Letter 1, 1878 p. 2-4
The brain nerves which communicate with the entire system are the only medium through which Heaven can communicate to man and affect his inmost life. Whatever disturbs the CIRCULATION of the ELECTRIC CURRENTS in the nervous system lessens the STRENGTH of the VITAL POWERS, and the result is a deadening of the SENSIBILITIES OF THE MIND. Testimonies for the Church V 2, p.347
INSTANTLY she FELT the THRILL as of an ELECTRIC CURRENT PASSING THROUGH EVERY FIBER OF HER BODY, GIVING HER A SENSATION OF PERFECT HEALTH. Ministry of Healing p. 60
Yes, we are Elohim’s property, and THE PATH OF OBEDIENCE TO NATURE’S LAWS IS THE DIRECT PATH TO HEAVEN. He who is converted from ERRORS in EATING, DRINKING, AND DRESSING is BEING PREPARED to hear and RECEIVE THE TRUTH into a good and willing heart. Many by practicing the LAWS OF NATURE and by RECEIVING the RENOVATING GRACE OF Elohim into the soul, obtain a NEW LEASE of PHYSICAL and SPIRITUAL LIFE. “The fear of Y’hovah is the beginning of wisdom.” Proverbs 9:10. Let wisdom’s voice be heard, for “her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.” Proverbs 3:17….Counsels on Health p. 222
Thou wilt show me the PATH OF LIFE: in Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy RIGHT HAND there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11
Elohim will preserve all who walk in the PATH OF OBEDIENCE; but to depart from it is to venture on Satan’s ground. There we are sure to fall. The Desire of Ages p. 126
Many are the temptations and besetments on every side to ruin the prospects of young men, both for this world and the next. But THE ONLY PATH OF SAFETY IS for young and old to live in STRICT CONFORMITY to the principles of PHYSICAL and MORAL LAW. The PATH OF OBEDIENCE is the ONLY PATH that leads to Heaven. CONFRONTATION p. 76, 77
No amount of money can buy a single victory over the temptations of Satan. But that which money is valueless to obtain, which is integrity, determined effort, and moral power, will, through the name of the Messiah, obtain noble victories upon the point of appetite. …And it is a certainty that unless we do overcome as the Messiah overcame we cannot have a seat with Him upon His throne. Those who in the face of light and truth destroy mental, moral, and physical health by indulgence of ANY kind will lose heaven. They sacrifice their Elohim-given POWERS to idols.
…Those who make determined efforts in the name of the Conqueror to overcome every unnatural craving of appetite will not die in the conflict. In their efforts to control appetite they are placing themselves in right relation to life, so that they may enjoy health and the FAVOR OF Elohim and have a right hold on the immortal life. CONFRONTATION p. 78, 79
To a people in whose hearts His law is written, the FAVOR OF Elohim is assured. They are one with Him. The Desire of Ages p.106
We are living in a solemn time, amid the closing scenes of this earth’s history, and Elohim’s people are not awake. They must AROUSE and make GREATER PROGRESS in reforming their habits of LIVING, in EATING, in DRESSING, in LABORING and RESTING. In all these they should GLORIFY Elohim and be PREPARED to GIVE BATTLE to our great foe, and to enjoy the PRECIOUS VICTORIES which Elohim has in reserve for those who are exercising TEMPERANCE in ALL things while STRIVING for an INCORRUPTIBLE CROWN. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 1, p. 618
Our FIRST duty toward Elohim and our fellow beings is that of self-development. Every faculty with which the Creator has endowed us should be cultivated to the highest degree of PERFECTION, that we may be able to do the greatest amount of good of which we are capable. Hence that time is spent to good account which is used in the establishment and preservation of physical and mental health. We cannot afford to dwarf or cripple any function of body or mind. As surely as we do this we must suffer the consequences. Counsels on Health p. 107
PERFECT OBEDIENCE to Elohim’S COMMANDS calls for CONFORMITY to the LAWS OF THE BEING . . . . Reflecting the Messiah p. 147
If PHYSICAL EXERCISE were combined with mental exertion, the BLOOD WOULD BE QUICKENED in its circulation, the ACTION OF THE HEART would be more perfect, IMPURE MATTER would be thrown off, and NEW LIFE and VIGOR would be experienced in EVERY PART of the body. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 3, p. 490
In strength of intellect, men who now live can bear no comparison to the ancients. There have been more ancient arts lost than the present generation now possess. For skill and art those living in this degenerate age will not compare with the knowledge possessed by strong men who lived near one thousand years.
Men before the Flood lived many hundreds of years, and when one hundred years old they were considered but youths. Those long-lived men had sound minds in sound bodies. Their mental and physical strength was so great that the present feeble generation can bear no comparison with them. Those ancients had nearly one thousand years in which to acquire knowledge. They came upon the stage of action from the ages of sixty to one hundred years, about the time those who now live the longest have acted their part in their little short life time, and have passed off the stage. Those who are deceived, and flattered on in the delusion that the present is an age of real progress, and that the human race has been in ages past progressing in true knowledge, are under the influence of the father of lies, whose work has ever been to turn the truth of Elohim into a lie. S.D.A. Bible Commentary Vol. 1, p. 1090
The Savior of the world had no controversy with Satan, who was expelled from heaven because he was no longer worthy of a place there. He who could INFLUENCE THE ANGELS OF Elohim against their Supreme Ruler, and against His Son, their loved Commander, and enlist their sympathy for himself, WAS CAPABLE OF ANY DECEPTION. Confrontation p. 45
He is DECEIVING MANY as he tried to deceive the Messiah, telling them that he is an angel from heaven, DOING A GOOD WORK FOR HUMANITY. And the MASSES ARE SO BLINDED BY SIN that they cannot DISCERN the DEVICES of Satan, and they HONOR him as they would a heavenly angel while he is working their eternal ruin. Confrontation p. 36
“I was shown a platform, braced by solid timbers, the truths of the word of Elohim. SOME ONE HIGH IN RESPONSIBILITY IN THE MEDICAL WORK was directing this man and that man to LOOSEN THE TIMBERS supporting this platform. Then, I heard a voice saying, “Where are the watchmen that ought to be standing on the walls of Zion? Are they asleep? How can they be silent?” Series B, No. 7 p. 38
Y’hovah hath cast off His altar, He hath abhorred His sanctuary, He hath given up into the hand of the enemy the walls of her palaces; they have made a noise in the house of Y’hovah, as in the day of a solemn feast. Lamentations 2:7
If she be a wall, we will build upon her a palace of silver: and if she be a door, we will enclose her with boards of cedar. Song of Solomon 8:9
And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be so few, that a child may write them down. Isaiah 10:19 “The truth for this time, the Third Angel’s message, is to be proclaimed with a Loud voice as we approach the GREAT FINAL TEST. This TEST MUST COME to the CHURCHES in CONNECTION with the TRUE MEDICAL MISSIONARY WORK, a work that has the Great Physician to dictate and preside in all that it comprehends.” Loma Linda Messages p. 62
Elohim is seeking to fit us for everlasting life. He longs that His people shall catch the strains of heavenly music, for He is our crown of rejoicing. He has put a new song on our lips, even thanksgiving unto our Elohim. Penitence mingled with thanksgiving should be our experience every day. “Ye are not your own, for ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify Elohim in your body, and in your spirit, which are Elohim’s” [1 Cor. 6:19, 20]. Study every plan, every method, used in your business, and think whether this business will most glorify Elohim. To every man Elohim has given his work. Manuscript Releases Vol. Twenty-one, PAGE 28, PARAGRAPH 2, CHAPTER NUMBER 1507
A bare assent to the truth is not Bible religion. . . . There are many Yahdians whose hearts are encased in a self-righteous armor that the arrow of Y’hovah, barbed and true, aimed by angel hands, would fail to pierce. The truth glides off, and the soul is not wounded. Man must first seek Elohim for himself, then the Holy Spirit will take the precious truth, far above the price of rubies, as it falls from the lips of Y’hoshua, and convey it, a living power, to the obedient heart. The TRUTH, received in the heart becomes a quickening power, awakening every faculty. IT IS a DIVINE INFLUENCE that touches the heart and CREATES the HEAVENLY MUSIC that flows forth from the lips in pure thanksgiving and praise. This Day with Elohim, PAGE 169
The history of the past shows an active working devil. He can no more be idle than harmless. Satan was found in ONLY ONE TREE to ENDANGER THE SAFETY of Adam and Eve. He planned to attract the holy pair to THAT ONE TREE, that they might do the VERY THING Elohim HAD SAID THEY SHOULD NOT DO—EAT OF THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE…
If men would STAND THE TEST WHICH ADAM FAILED TO ENDURE, and would, IN THE STRENGTH OF Y’hoshua, OBEY ALL THE REQUIREMENTS of Elohim, because they are RIGHTEOUSNESS, then they would never become acquainted with the objectionable knowledge. Elohim never designed that men should have this KNOWLEDGE WHICH COMES OF DISOBEDIENCE, and which, carried into practice, ends in eternal death. When men almost invariably choose the knowledge that Satan presents; when their taste is so perverted that it craves that knowledge as though it were a fountain of supreme wisdom, then they give evidence that they are separated from Elohim, and are in rebellion against the Messiah. Testimonies to the Church Vol. 5, p. 504
“But the days of PURIFICATION of the CHURCH are hastening on apace. …Those who have rendered supreme homage to “SCIENCE FALSELY SO CALLED” will not be leaders then. …Y’hovah has faithful servants, who in the SHAKING, TESTING time will be disclosed to view. There are precious ones now hidden who have not BOWED THE KNEE TO BAAL.” Testimonies for the Church Vol. 5, p. 80, 81
Our Counselor impressed deeply on our minds that Elohim’s commandment-keeping people must be sanctified through the truth and that truth must ever be given the foremost place. We must not forget that Satan still lives to exercise his deceptive power through FALSE SCIENCE. Testimonies for the Church Volume Nine PAGE 69
“There are many ways of PRACTICING THE HEALING ART, but there is ONLY ONE WAY THAT HEAVEN APPROVES. Elohim’S REMEDIES are the SIMPLE AGENCIES OF NATURE… Testimonies for the Church Vol. 5, p. 443
It is not a denial of faith to use such remedies as Elohim has provided to alleviate pain and to aid nature in her work of restoration….WE SHOULD EMPLOY EVERY FACILITY FOR THE RESTORATION OF HEALTH, TAKING EVERY ADVANTAGE POSSIBLE, WORKING IN HARMONY WITH NATURAL LAWS.–Ministry of Healing, pp. 231, 232

“SPURIOUS SCIENTIFIC THEORIES are coming in as a thief in the night, stealing away the landmarks and undermining the pillars of our faith. …You know that SATAN WILL COME IN to deceive if possible the very elect.

How BEAUTIFUL the earth was when it came from the Creator’s hand! Elohim presented before the universe a world in which His all-seeing eye could find no spot or stain, no defect or crookedness. Each PART of His creation occupied the place assigned it, and answered the purpose for which it was created LIKE THE PARTS OF SOME GREAT MACHINE, PART FITTED TO PART, and ALL WAS IN PERFECT HARMONY. Peace and holy joy filled the earth. There was no confusion, no clashing, there was no disease to afflict man or beast, and THE VEGETABLE KINGDOM WAS WITHOUT TAINT OF CORRUPTION. Elohim looked upon the work of His hands, wrought out by the Messiah, and pronounced it “VERY GOOD.” He looked upon a PERFECT WORLD, in which there was no trace of sin, NO IMPERFECTION. Manuscript Release Vol. 6, page 30, pr. 03
As the angel from heaven rolled away the stone, the other entered the tomb, and unbound the wrappings from the body of Y’hoshua. But it was the Savior’s hand that folded each, and laid it in its place. In His sight who guides alike the star and the atom, there is nothing unimportant. ORDER AND PERFECTION are seen in ALL HIS WORK. The Desire of Ages p. 789
Elohim is a Elohim of ORDER, everything connected with Heaven is in PERFECT ORDER; subjection and thorough discipline mark the movements of the Angelic Host. Success can only attend ORDER and HARMONIOUS ACTION. Elohim requires ORDER and SYSTEM in His work now no less than in the days of Israel. All who are working for Him are to labor INTELLIGENTLY, not in a careless, haphazard manner. He would have His work done with FAITH and EXACTNESS, that He may place the SEAL OF HIS APPROVAL on it. Patriarchs and Prophets p. 376
And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him FIVE smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in HIS HAND: and he drew near to the Philistine. 1 Samuel 17:40
THINE HAND shall find out all Thine enemies: THY RIGHT HAND shall find out those that hate Thee. Psalm 21:8
whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their RIGHT HAND is a RIGHT HAND of FALSEHOOD. Psalm 144:8
And he shall SNATCH (SEEK FOR) ON THE RIGHT HAND, and BE HUNGRY; and HE SHALL EAT on the left hand, and they shall not be SATISFIED: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm: Isaiah 9:20
MAKE A CHAIN: for the land is FULL OF BLOODY CRIMES, and the city is full of violence. Ezekiel 7:23
The solemn events which are now taking place belong to a SERIES OF EVENTS in the CHAIN of history, THE FIRST LINK of which IS CONNECTED with EDEN. Let the people of Elohim PREPARE for what is coming upon the earth. SDA SCRIPTURE COMMENT VOL. 7 P 984, 985
My FACE will I TURN ALSO FROM THEM, and they shall POLLUTE MY SECRET PLACE: for the ROBBERS shall enter INTO IT, and DEFILE IT. Ezekiel 7:22
Elohim calls for reformers to stand in defense of the LAW which He has established to govern the PHYSICAL SYSTEM. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, p. 136
NEXT TO THE SCRIPTURES, NATURE IS TO BE OUR GREAT LESSON BOOK.
Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, p. 185
Satan knows that he cannot overcome man unless he can control his will. HE CAN DO THIS BY DECEIVING MAN SO THAT HE WILL CO-OPERATE WITH HIM IN TRANSGRESSING THE LAWS OF NATURE IN EATING AND DRINKING, WHICH IS TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW OF Elohim. Temperance p. 16
He is unknown to all who, without the guidance of the divine Teacher, take up the study of NATURE. They will assuredly come to wrong conclusions.
Testimonies for the Church Vol. 8, p. 257
To the contrary, she claimed that scripture contained “many things above finite comprehension” and “mysteries too deep for the human mind to explain or even to fully comprehend.”
“Momentous Truth is conveyed to the mind through the reading of the Scriptures. Every Word is a valuable Pearl. No Word is to lose its virtue and force. One Word changed would injure the thought and destroy the lesson taught. By incorrect punctuation the meaning of the Word of Elohim may be greatly altered. The Holy Spirit directed and impressed the writers of the Bible. These men did not write words of human wisdom, but words given them by Elohim.” Manuscript Release 866 p. 7
THAT HOLY BOOK CONTAINS NOTHING THAT IS NON-ESSENTIAL; NOTHING IS REVEALED THAT HAS NOT A BEARING UPON OUR ACTUAL LIVES. THE DEEPER OUR LOVE FOR Y’hoshua, THE MORE HIGHLY WE SHALL REGARD THAT WORD AS THE VOICE OF Elohim DIRECTLY TO US. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 5, p. 303
There is nothing that the great deceiver fears so much as that we shall become ACQUAINTED with his devices. Spirit of Prophecy Vol. 4, p. 335
Should the people read and believe these admonitions, we could have little hope of overcoming them. But if we can divert their attention from these warnings, they will REMAIN IGNORANT of our power and cunning and we shall secure them in our ranks at last. Elohim will not permit His words to be slighted with impunity. Spirit of Prophecy Vol. 4, p. 340
Satan gathered the fallen angels together to devise some way of doing the most possible evil to the human family. One proposition after another was made, till finally Satan himself thought of a plan. He would take the FRUIT OF THE VINE, also WHEAT, and OTHER THINGS given by Elohim as FOOD, and would CONVERT THEM INTO POISONS, which would RUIN man’s PHYSICAL, MENTAL, and MORAL POWERS, and so overcome the SENSES that Satan should have full control. Temperance p. 12
The same Elohim who GUIDES THE PLANETS WORKS IN THE FRUIT ORCHARD and in the VEGETABLE GARDEN, HE NEVER MADE A THORN, A THISTLE OR A TARE, these are Satan’s work, the result of DEGENERATION, introduced by him among the PRECIOUS THINGS; Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, p. 186
Not one noxious plant was placed in Y’hovah’s great garden, but after Adam and Eve sinned, poisonous herbs sprang up. In the parable of the sower the question was asked the Master, “Didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? how then hath it tares?” The Master answered, “An enemy hath done this.” All tares are sown by the evil one. Every noxious herb is of his sowing, and by his INGENIOUS METHODS OF AMALGAMATION he has corrupted the earth with tares. S.D.A. Bible Commentary Vol. 1, p. 1086
Concerning the works of men, by the WORD OF THY LIPS I have kept me from the PATHS OF THE DESTROYER. Psalms 17:4
And Elohim said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree YIELDING FRUIT AFTER HIS KIND, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
And the earth brought forth grass, and HERB YIELDING SEED AFTER HIS KIND, and the tree yielding fruit, WHOSE SEED WAS IN ITSELF, AFTER HIS KIND: and Elohim saw that it was GOOD. Genesis 1:11, 12
Ye shall keep my statutes, Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with MINGLED SEED: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woolen come upon thee. Leviticus 19:19
Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spew you not out.
And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them. Leviticus 20:22, 23
Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with DIVERS SEEDS: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be DEFILED.
Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.
Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together. Deuteronomy 22:9-11
“The CRISIS is just before us when each will need much strength from Elohim in order to stand against the wiles of Satan, for his deceptions will come in EVERY CONCEIVABLE FORM. Those who have allowed themselves to be the sport of Satan’s temptations WILL BE UNPREPARED then to take the right side. Their IDEAS will be CONFUSED so that they CANNOT DISCERN BETWEEN THE DIVINE AND THE SATANIC.” Testimonies for the Church V5 p 479
While they trust to the guidance of human authority, none will come to a SAVING knowledge of the TRUTH. The Desire of Ages p. 141
We should not take the testimony of any man as to what the Scriptures teach, but should study the words of Elohim for ourselves. Steps to the Messiah p. 89
The opposition and misrepresentation of the priests and rulers, while it could not turn them away from the Messiah, still caused them great perplexity. They did not see their way clearly. The INFLUENCE of their early training, the teaching of the rabbis, the power of tradition, still intercepted their view of TRUTH. The Desire of Ages p. 412
Those to whom the message of TRUTH is spoken seldom ask, “Is it true?” but, “By whom is it advocated?” Multitudes estimate it by the numbers who accept it; and the question is still asked, “Have any of the learned men or religious leaders believed?” Men are no more favorable to real Elohimliness now than in the days of The Messiah. They are just as intently seeking earthly good, to the neglect of eternal riches; AND IT IS NOT AN ARGUMENT AGAINST THE TRUTH, that large numbers are not ready to accept it, or that it is not received by the world’s great men, or even by the religious leaders. The Desire of Ages p. 459, 460
Every human being will have to give an account to Elohim for the way in which he has used his ENTRUSTED TALENTS. We are under obligation to use our powers aright that we may be qualified for eternal life in the kingdom of Elohim. Elohim DEMANDS PERFECTION FROM EVERY HUMAN BEING. We are to BE PERFECT IN THIS LIFE OF HUMANITY, even as Elohim IS PERFECT in HIS DIVINE CHARACTER.
It was a great sacrifice The Messiah made for man in dying for him upon the cross. What are we willing to sacrifice for His love? Y’hoshua says, “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15)–NOT TO SELECT out one or two or nine, but the WHOLE TEN–ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS MUST BE KEPT. John tell us of those who pretend to love but do not obey Elohim’s requirements. “He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him: (1 John 2:4). “For this is the love of Elohim, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous” (chap. 5:3)… Y’hoshua was among the lowly of the earth. He did not take His position by the side of the learned rabbis or the rulers. He was not found among the potentates of earth, but among the lowly ones. The TRUTH was NEVER FOUND AMONG THE MAJORITY. IT WAS EVER FOUND AMONG THE MINORITY. This day with Elohim p. 318, 319
There is danger that men will receive the counsel of men, when by so doing they will discard the counsel of Elohim. Oh, what lessons all must learn before they will understand that Elohim seeth not as man seeth. Y’hovah says: “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways….For as the heavens are higher that the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8,9. Unless there is a decided reformation among the people of Elohim, He will turn His face from them. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 8, p. 146
As the Light and Life of men was rejected by the ecclesiastical authorities in the days of The Messiah, so it has been rejected in every succeeding generation. Again and again the history of The Messiah’s withdrawal from Judea has been repeated. When the Reformers preached the Word of Elohim, they had no thought of separating themselves from the established church; but the religious leaders would not tolerate the light, and those that bore it were forced to seek another class, who were longing for the truth. In our day few of the professed followers of the Reformers are actuated by their spirit. Few are listening for the voice of Elohim, and ready to accept truth in whatever guise it may be presented. Often those who follow in the steps of the Reformers are forced to turn away from the churches they love, in order to declare the plain teaching of the Word of Elohim. And many times those who are seeking for light are by the same teaching obliged to leave the church of their fathers, that they may render obedience. The Desire of Ages p. 232
In preparing the way for The Messiah’s first advent, he was a representative of those who are to prepare a people for Y’hovah’s second coming. The world is given to self-indulgence. Errors and fables abound. Satan’s snares for destroying souls are multiplied. All who would perfect holiness in the fear of Elohim must learn the lessons of temperance and self-control. The appetites and passions must be held in subjection to the higher powers of the mind. This self-discipline is essential to that mental strength and spiritual insight which will enable us to understand and to practice the sacred truths of Elohim’s word. For this reason temperance finds its place in the work of preparation for The Messiah’s second coming. The Desire of Ages p. 101
We are to bear testimony of the great truths which Elohim has committed to us. The Sanctuary in Heaven is the very center of The Messiah’s work in behalf of men. It concerns every soul living upon the earth. It opens to our view the plan of redemption, bringing us down to the very close of time, and revealing the triumphant issue of the contest between righteousness and sin. It is of the utmost importance that all who have received the light, both old and young, should thoroughly investigate these subjects, and be able to give an answer to every one that asketh them a reason of the hope that is in them.
The intercession of The Messiah in man’s behalf in the Sanctuary above is as essential to the plan of salvation as was His death upon the cross…and through His mediation the sincere desire of all who come to Him in faith may be presented before Elohim. Spirit of Prophecy Vol. 4, p. 313, 314
The prophets wrote more for our time than their own–Never are we absent from the mind of Elohim. Elohim is our joy and our salvation. Each of the ancient prophets spoke less for their own time than for ours, so that their prophesying is in force for us. “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples; and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 1 Cor. 12:11. “Not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from Heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.” (1 Peter 1:12). Manuscript Release Vol. 7, page 417, pr.01
The trials of the children of Israel, and their attitude just before the first coming of The Messiah, have been presented before me again and again to illustrate the position of the people of Elohim in their experience before the second coming of The Messiah. How the enemy sought every occasion to take control of the minds of the Jews, and to-day he is seeking to blind the minds of Elohim’s servants, that they may not be able to discern the PRECIOUS TRUTH. Review and Herald-February 18, 1890
Internal corruption will bring the denunciations of Elohim upon this people as it did upon Jerusalem. Selected Messages Vol. 2, page 378, pr.03
There has not been so glaring a departure from Elohim. It was gradual, and they KNOW NOT THE TIME WHEN Elohim LEFT THEM, FOR THEY WERE SO ASSIMILATED TO THE WORLD THAT HEAVEN’S LIGHT WAS WITHDRAWN, and they are left blind, wretched, and naked. Letter 16, 1861 (To the Church in Roosevelt and vicinity.)
The effort to unite the teachings of Y’hoshua with the established religion would be vain…The instrumentalities to be used in the gospel work are those souls who gladly receive the light which Elohim sends them. These are His agencies for imparting the knowledge of truth to the world. If through the grace of The Messiah His people will become new bottles, He will fill them with new wine. The Desire of Ages. p. 279
These Pharisees had not accepted the mission of the Baptist. They had pointed in scorn to his abstemious life, his simple habits, his coarse garments, and had declared him a fanatic. The Desire of Ages p. 275
The SPIRIT OF PERSECUTION will not be excited against those who have no connection with Elohim, and so have no moral strength. It will be aroused against the FAITHFUL ONES, who MAKE NO CONCESSIONS TO THE WORLD and WILL NOT BE SWAYED BY ITS OPINIONS, ITS FAVOR, OR ITS OPPOSITION. A religion that bears a living testimony in favor of holiness, and that rebukes pride, selfishness, avarice, and fashionable sins, will be hated by the world and by superficial Yahdians…. When you suffer reproach and persecution you are in excellent company; for Y’hoshua endured it all, and much more. If you are faithful sentinels for Elohim, these things are a compliment to you. IT IS THE HEROIC SOULS, WHO WILL BE TRUE IF THEY STAND ALONE, WHO WILL WIN THE IMPERISHABLE CROWN. Youth’s Instructor, May 28, 1884.
If the workers will HUMBLE THEIR HEARTS BEFORE Elohim, the blessing will come. They will all the while be receiving fresh, new ideas, and there will be a wonderful revival of GOSPEL MEDICAL MISSIONARY WORK. Testimonies for the Church V9 p. 219
From the opening of the great controversy in Heaven, SATAN HAS MAINTAINED HIS CAUSE THROUGH DECEPTION; and The Messiah HAS BEEN WORKING TO UNVEIL HIS SCHEMES AND TO BREAK HIS POWER. It is He who has encountered the deceiver, and who through all the ages has been seeking to wrest the captives from his grasp, who will pass judgment upon every soul. The Desire of Ages p. 210
Evil influences have conspired to counterwork ALL good. They have confederated to make men THINK it righteous to oppose the LAW of JEHOVAH. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, p. 237
Some will prove to be traitors, heady, high-minded, and self-sufficient, and will turn away from the TRUTH, making shipwreck of faith. Why? – Because they did not live “by EVERY WORD that proceedeth from the mouth of Elohim.” Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, p. 132
Whatever is clearly established by the Word of Elohim we should accept, without attempting to meet every doubt which Satan may suggest. In Heavenly Places p. 105
Obedience to Elohim’s law in every respect would save men from intemperance, licentiousness, and disease of every type. NO ONE can violate NATURAL LAW without suffering the penalty. Temperance p. 228
Ignorance is no excuse now for the transgression of law. The LIGHT shines clearly, and none need be ignorant for the Great Elohim Himself is man’s Instructor. All are bound by the most sacred obligations to Elohim to heed the sound philosophy and genuine experience which He is now giving them in reference to HEALTH REFORM. He designs that the great subject of HEALTH REFORM shall be AGITATED, and the PUBLIC MIND DEEPLY STIRRED TO INVESTIGATE; for it is impossible for men and women, with all their sinful health-destroying, BRAIN-ENERVATING HABITS, to DISCERN SACRED TRUTH, through which they are to be SANCTIFIED, REFINED, ELEVATED, AND MADE FIT for the SOCIETY OF HEAVENLY ANGELS in the KINGDOM OF GLORY. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 3, p. 162
Had men ever been obedient to the LAW OF TEN COMMANDMENTS, carrying out in their lives the PRINCIPLES OF THESE TEN PRECEPTS, the CURSE OF DISEASE now flooding the world WOULD NOT BE. Men and women cannot violate NATURAL LAW in the indulgence of depraved appetite, and lustful passions, and not VIOLATE THE LAW OF Elohim. Therefore, Elohim HAS PERMITTED THE LIGHT OF HEALTH REFORM TO SHINE UPON US, THAT WE MAY SEE OUR SIN IN VIOLATING THE LAWS Elohim HAS ESTABLISHED IN OUR BEING. ALL OUR ENJOYMENTS OR SUFFERINGS MAY BE TRACED TO OBEDIENCE OR TRANSGRESSION OF NATURAL LAW. Our gracious Heavenly Father sees the deplorable condition of men while living in violation of the Laws He has established. Many are doing this ignorantly, some knowingly. Y’hovah, IN LOVE AND PITY TO THE RACE, CAUSES THE LIGHT TO SHINE UPON HEALTH REFORM. He publishes His Law, and the penalty that will follow the transgression of it, that ALL MAY LEARN, AND BE CAREFUL TO LIVE IN HARMONY WITH, NATURAL LAW. HE PROCLAIMS HIS LAW SO DISTINCTLY AND MAKES IT SO PROMINENT, THAT IT IS LIKE A CITY SET ON A HILL. ALL ACCOUNTABLE BEINGS CAN UNDERSTAND HIS LAW, IF THEY WILL. IDIOTS WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE. The Health Reformer p. 89-republished edition
As we near the close of time, we must RISE HIGHER AND STILL HIGHER upon the question of HEALTH REFORM and YAHDIAN TEMPERANCE, presenting it in a more positive and decided manner. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, p. 112
How opposed is all this to the work that must be accomplished in us just previous to receiving the gift of immortality. Elohim’s elect must stand untainted amid the corruptions teeming around them in these last days. Their BODIES must be MADE HOLY, their SPIRITS PURE. If this work is to be accomplished, it must be UNDERTAKEN AT ONCE, EARNESTLY and UNDERSTANDINGLY. Maranatha p.119
The human organism is the handiwork of Elohim. The organs employed in all the different functions of the body were made by Him. Y’hovah gives us food and drink, that the wants of the body may be supplied. He has given the earth different properties adapted to the growth of food for His children. He gives the sunshine and the showers, the early and the latter rain. He forms the clouds and sends the dew. All are His gifts…
But all these blessings will not restore in us His moral image unless we cooperate with Him, making PAINSTAKING EFFORTS to KNOW OURSELVES, to UNDERSTAND HOW to CARE for the delicate human machinery. Man must DILIGENTLY help to KEEP himself in HARMONY with NATURE’S LAWS. He who COOPERATES WITH Elohim in the work of keeping this wonderful machinery in order, who consecrates all his.powers to Elohim, seeking intelligently to obey the LAWS OF NATURE, stands in his Elohim-GIVEN MANHOOD, and is recorded in the books of heaven as a MAN. In Heavenly Places p. 157 For Elohim speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. Job 34:14
Many, under different circumstances have listened to the voices of the inhabitants of other worlds. They have come to act a part in this life. They have spoken in assemblies, and opened before assemblies human histories, and have done works which it was impossible for human agencies to do. Time and again have they been the generals of armies. They have been sent forth to cleanse away pestilence. they have eaten at the humble board of families. Often they have appeared as weary travelers in need of shelter for the night. The Upward Look, page 84, pr. 04
Just to the degree in which the word of Elohim is received and obeyed will it impress with its potency and touch with its life every spring of action, every phase of character. It will purify every thought, regulate every desire. Ministry of Healing p.136
It is written was His reason for every act that varied from the family customs… His strict obedience to the Law of Elohim they condemned as stubbornness. The Desire of Ages p. 86
If the Bible were studied as it should be, men would become STRONG in INTELLECT. The subjects treated upon in the WORD of Elohim, the DIGNIFIED SIMPLICITY of ITS UTTERANCE, the NOBLE THEMES which IT PRESENTS TO THE MIND, develop FACULTIES in man which CANNOT OTHERWISE be developed. In the Bible, a boundless field of opened for the imagination. The student will come from a contemplation of its grand themes, from association with its lofty imagery, more pure and elevated in thought and feeling than if he had spent the time in reading any work of mere human origin, …
Elohim would have us avail ourselves of every means of CULTIVATING and STRENGTHENING OUR INTELLECTUAL POWERS. We were created for a HIGHER, NOBLER EXISTENCE THAN THE LIFE THAT NOW IS. THIS TIME is one of PREPARATION FOR THE FUTURE, IMMORTAL LIFE. …These TRUTHS will do a MIGHTY WORK for man, if he will but FOLLOW WHAT THEY TEACH. But how little the Bible is studied! Every unimportant thing is dwelt upon in preference to its themes. If the Bible were read more, if its TRUTHS were better understood, we should be a far more ENLIGHTENED AND INTELLIGENT PEOPLE. ANGELS from the WORLD of LIGHT stand by the side of the EARNEST SEEKER AFTER TRUTH, to IMPRESS and ILLUMINATE his mind. He who is dark of understanding may find LIGHT through an ACQUAINTANCE with THE SCRIPTURES. Fundamentals of Yahdian Education. p. 165, 166
Y’hoshua had come to teach the meaning of the worship of Elohim, and He could not sanction the mingling of human requirements with the divine precepts. They urged Him to receive the maxims and traditions that had been handed down from the ancient rabbis, but He asked for their authority in Holy writ, He would hear every word that proceeds from the mouth of Elohim; but He could not obey the inventions of men. And not even love and respect for His parents could turn Him from obedience to Elohim’s word. It is written was His reason. The Desire of Ages p. 84,85
With the same carefulness are we to treasure the bread from heaven to satisfy the needs of the soul. By every word of Elohim we are to live. Nothing that Elohim has spoken is to be lost. Not one word that concerns our eternal salvation are we to neglect. Not one word is to fall useless to the ground. Ministry of Healing p. 48
Before accepting any doctrine or precept, we should demand A PLAIN “Thus saith Y’hovah” in its support. Spirit of Prophecy Vol. 4, p. 413.
In the presence of the witnessing Universe, He testified that it is a less calamity to suffer whatever may befall than to depart in any manner from the will of Elohim, “man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of Elohim.” The Desire of Ages p 121
While He did not give countenance to drug medication, HE SANCTIONED THE USE OF SIMPLE AND NATURAL REMEDIES. The Desire of Ages p. 824
But that which is greater than all miracles, a firm reliance upon a “Thus saith Y’hovah”, was a sign that could not be controverted. The Desire of Ages p. 120
His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Psalm 91:4
Of all the lessons to be learned from Y’hoshua’s first great temptation, none is more important than that bearing upon thecontrol of the appetites and passions… His example declares that our only hope of eternal life is through bringing the appetites and passions into subjection to the will of Elohim. The Desire of Ages p. 122
While The Messiah accepted invitations to feasts and gatherings, He did not partake of all the food offered Him, but quietly ate of that which was appropriate for His physical necessities, avoiding the many things that He did not need. His disciples were frequently invited with Him, and His conduct was a lesson to them, teaching them not to indulge appetite by overeating or by eating improper food. He showed them that portions of the food provided could be passed by, and portions chosen.
The Messiah went to these feasts because He wished to show those who were excluding themselves from the society of their fellowman, how wrong their course of action was, He wished to teach them that truth was given to be imparted to those who had it not. If they had truth, why keep it selfishly to themselves. The world is perishing for want of the living truth. Manuscript Releases, Vol. 7, page 412, pr. 01
(To Dear Brethren and Sisters of St. Helena, California) Dated Feb 18,1905 Health is an inestimable blessing, and one which is more closely related to conscience and religion than many realize. It has a great deal to do with one’s capability. Every minister should feel that if he would be a faithful guardian of the flock, he must preserve all his powers in condition for the best possible service. Our workers should use their knowledge of the laws of life and health. Read the best authors on these subjects, and OBEY RELIGIOUSLY that which your REASON tells you is TRUTH. Gospel Workers p. 242
Never yield the truth to please anyone; be decided, be fixed, be established, be not of a doubtful mind. Spiritual Gifts, Vol. 4, p. 206
To all hygienic reformers I would say, Live up strictly to the convictions of your own enlightened mind. Be not led into indulgence by the entreaties of friends. Live the reform at home; and when you go abroad, carry it with you. Live it, and at proper times, in proper places, and in a proper manner, talk its principles. Never let the opposition or the kind entreaties of friends gain ground on you. Ever hold on your way, and by all proper means labor to impress those around you with the importance of the subject. CTBH p. 200, 201
In your association with unbelievers, do not allow yourselves to be swerved from right principles. If you sit at their table, eat temperately, and only of food that will not confuse the mind. Keep clear of intemperance. You cannot afford to weaken your mental or physical powers, lest you become unable to discern spiritual things. Keep your mind in such a condition that Elohim can impress it with the precious truth of His Word. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6 p. 336
There is nothing more calculated to strengthen the intellect than a study of the Bible. No other book is so potent to elevate the thoughts, to give vigor to the faculties, as the broad, ennobling truths of the Bible. If Elohim’s Word were studied as it should be, men would have a breadth of mind, a nobility of character, that is rarely seen in these times. In Heavenly Places p. 135
But the ONLY THING IN OUR WORLD UPON WHICH WE CAN RELY IS THE WORD OF Elohim. The Desire of Ages p.121
ANYTHING that LESSENS PHYSICAL STRENGTH ENFEEBLES THE MIND and makes it LESS CAPABLE OF DISCRIMINATING BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG. The Messiah’s Object Lessons p. 346
Transgression of PHYSICAL LAW is transgression of the MORAL LAW; for Elohim is the Author of PHYSICAL LAWS as He is The Author of The MORAL LAW. The Messiah’s Object Lessons p. 347
Elohim has placed it in our power to obtain a knowledge of the laws of health. He has made it our DUTY to preserve our physical powers in the BEST possible condition, that we may render to Him acceptable service. Those who refuse to improve the light and knowledge that has been mercifully placed within their reach, are rejecting one of the MEANS which Elohim has granted them to promote spiritual as well as physical life. They are placing themselves where they will be exposed to the delusions of Satan. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 5, p. 193
And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of Y’hovah is his TREASURE. Isaiah 33:6
LIVING WATERS-A DREAM
My husband attended meetings in New Hampshire and Maine. During his absence I was much troubled, fearing he might take the cholera, which was then prevailing. But one night I dreamed that while many around us were dying with the cholera, my husband proposed that we should take a walk. In our walk I noticed that his eyes looked bloodshot, his countenance flushed, and his lips pale. I told him that I feared that he would be an easy subject for the cholera.
Said he, “Walk on a little further, and I will show you a sure remedy for the cholera.”
As we walked on, we came to a bridge over a stream of water, when he abruptly left me and plunged out of sight into the water. I was frightened; but he soon arose, holding in his hand a glass of sparkling water. He drank it, saying, “This water cures all manner of diseases.” He plunged in again out of sight, brought up another glass of clear water, and as he held it up repeated the same words.
I felt sad that he did not offer me some of the water. Said he: “There is a secret spring in the bottom of this river which cures all manner of diseases, and all who obtain it must plunge at a venture. No one can obtain it for another. Each must plunge for it himself.” As he drank the glass of water, I looked at his countenance. His complexion was fair and natural. He seemed to possess health and vigor. When I awoke, all my fears were dispelled, and I trusted my husband to the care of a merciful Elohim, fully believing that He would return him to me in safety. Yahdian Experience and Teachings of Ellen G. White p. 125
The gospel is given in precept in Leviticus. IMPLICIT OBEDIENCE is required now, as then. How essential that we understand the importance of this word. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, p. 392
We are to become familiar with the LEVITICAL LAW in ALL its BEARINGS; for it contains the instruction that if studied will enable us to understand better the rule of faith and practice that we are to follow in our dealings with one another. No soul has any excuse for BEING IN DARKNESS. Those who receive the Messiah by faith will receive also power to become the sons of Elohim. S.D.A. Bible Commentary Vol. 7-A p.(42), 1110
It is the Messiah who searches the HEARTS and tries the REINS of the children of men. ALL THINGS ARE NAKED AND OPEN BEFORE THE EYES OF HIM WITH WHOM WE HAVE TO DO, neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight. In the days of ancient Israel the sacrifices brought to the high priest were cut open to the BACKBONE to see if they were SOUND at HEART. So the SACRIFICES we bring today are LAID OPEN before the PIERCING EYE of OUR GREAT HIGH PRIEST. HE OPENS AND INSPECTS EVERY SACRIFICE BROUGHT BY THE HUMAN RACE, that He may prove whether it is WORTHY of BEING PRESENTED to the Father. S.D.A. Bible Commentary Vol. 7-A p.(42), 1110
I beseech you therefore, brethren, BY THE MERCIES OF Elohim, that ye PRESENT YOUR BODIES A LIVING SACRIFICE, HOLY, ACCEPTABLE UNTO Elohim, which is your REASONABLE SERVICE. Romans 12:1
The Bible is Elohim’s voice speaking to us. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, p. 393
All the PHYSICAL ORGANS are the SERVANTS OF THE MIND, and the NERVES are the MESSENGERS that TRANSMIT its orders to every part of the body, GUIDING THE MOTIONS OF THE LIVING MACHINERY. The appetites and passions must be controlled, that through them we shall not weaken or defile Elohim’s HUMAN temple. Reflecting the Messiah. p. 149
In consequence of continual transgression, the moral law was repeated in awful grandeur from Sinai. The Messiah gave to Moses religious precepts which were to govern the everyday life. These statutes were explicitly given to guard the Ten Commandments. They were not shadowy types to pass away with the death of the Messiah. They were to be binding upon man in every age as long as time should last. These commands were enforced by the power of the Moral Law, and they clearly and definitely explained that Law. Review and Herald Vol. 1, p. 164
Said the angel, “Feeling is not faith. Faith is simply to take Elohim at His Word.” Testimonies for the Church V1, p. 620
They were not to do this from motives of resentment or through wounded dignity, but to show how grievous a thing it is to refuse Y’hoshua’s message or His messengers. To reject Y’hoshua’s servants is to reject the Messiah Himself.
Our condemnation in the judgment will not result from the fact that we have been in error, but from the fact that we have neglected HEAVEN-SENT OPPORTUNITIES for learning what is TRUTH. The Desire of Ages p. 489, 490
Every human invention that has been substituted for the commandments of Elohim will be found worthless in that day when “Elohim shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” Ecclesiastes. 12:14. The Desire of Ages p. 398
For the sake of gaining worldly riches honor or power, they place the maxims, traditions, and requirements of men above the requirements of Elohim. From them the treasures of His Word are hidden. Messiah’s Object Lessons p. 106
The value of this treasure is above gold or silver. The riches of earth’s mines cannot compare with it. C.O.L. p. 107
The Word of Elohim is to be our study. We are to educate our children in the TRUTHS found therein. It is an inexhaustible treasure; C.O.L. p.109
But man’s INVENTIONS are not only unreliable, they ARE DANGEROUS; for they place man where Elohim should be. C.O.L. p. 110
Disobedience has closed the door to a VAST AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE that might have been gained from the Scriptures. UNDERSTANDING MEANS OBEDIENCE to Elohim’s commandments. COL p. 112
STRICT INTEGRITY should be cherished by every student. Every mind should turn with reverent attention to the REVEALED WORD OF Elohim. LIGHT AND GRACE WILL BE GIVEN to those who thus OBEY Elohim. They will behold WONDROUS THINGS OUT OF HIS LAW. GREAT TRUTHS that have lain unheeded and unseen since the day of Pentecost, are to SHINE from Elohim’S WORD in their NATIVE PURITY. To those who TRULY LOVE Elohim the Holy Spirit will reveal TRUTHS that have faded from the mind, and will also reveal TRUTHS THAT ARE ENTIRELY NEW. Those who eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Elohim will bring from the books of Daniel and Revelation truth that is inspired by the Holy Spirit. They will start into action forces that cannot be repressed. The lips of children will be opened to proclaim the MYSTERIES THAT HAVE BEEN HIDDEN from the minds of men. Y’hovah has chosen the foolish things of this world to confound the wise, and the weak things of the world to confound the mighty. Fundamentals of Yahdian Education P. 473
Wonderful possibilities are open to those who lay hold of the divine assurances of Elohim’s word. There are glorious truths to come before the people of Elohim. Privileges and duties which they do not even suspect to be in the Bible will be laid open before them. As they follow on in the PATH OF HUMBLE OBEDIENCE, DOING HIS WILL, they will know more and more of the oracles of Elohim….
In Heavenly Places p. 136 That there was to be SPECIAL LIGHT for Elohim’s people as they neared the closing scenes of this earth’s history. ANOTHER ANGEL was to come from Heaven with a MESSAGE, and THE WHOLE EARTH WAS TO BE LIGHTENED WITH HIS GLORY. It would be impossible for us to state just how this ADDITIONAL LIGHT would come. It might come in a very unexpected manner, in a way that would not agree with the ideas that many have conceived. It is not at all unlikely, or contrary to the ways and works of Elohim, to send LIGHT to His people in UNEXPECTED WAYS. Man. Rel. Vol. 13, page 334, pr. 02
The HOLY LAW SPOKEN BY Elohim FROM SINAI IS a PART OF HIMSELF, and holy men who are its STRICT OBSERVERS will alone honor Him by teaching it to others…They that minister must be HOLY, PURE, AND WITHOUT BLEMISH, OR Elohim WILL DESTROY THEM. Elohim has not changed. HE IS JUST AS HOLY AND PURE, JUST AS PARTICULAR, AS HE EVER WAS. Those who profess to be the ministers of Y’hoshua should be men of experience and deep piety, and then at all times and in all placers they can shed a holy influence. Early Writings p. 102-103
He was not the Messiah that the Jews had looked for. So today the AGENCIES that Y’hovah sends are not what men have looked for.
BUT Y’hoshua WILL NOT ASK ANY MAN BY WHOM TO SEND. HE WILL SEND BY WHOM HE WILL. Men may not be able to understand WHY Y’hovah sends this one or that one. His WORK may be a matter of CURIOSITY. Y’hovah will not satisfy this CURIOSITY; and HIS WORD WILL NOT RETURN UNTO HIM VOID. Fundamentals of Yahdian Education p. 472
Then Y’hoshua would encourage them by raising HIS GLORIOUS RIGHT ARM, and from HIS ARM came a GLORIOUS LIGHT which waved over the Advent band, and they shouted Hallelujah! Others rashly denied the LIGHT behind them, and said that it was not Elohim that had led them out so far. …The living saints, 144,000 in number, knew and understood the voice, while the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquake. …We all entered the cloud together, and were seven days ascending to the sea of glass, when Y’hoshua brought along the crowns and with HIS OWN RIGHT HAND placed them on our heads.
…Y’hoshua raised HIS MIGHTY GLORIOUS ARM, laid hold of the gate and swung it back on its golden hinges, and said to us, You have washed your robes in my blood, STOOD STIFFLY FOR MY TRUTH, ENTER IN. A word to the “Little Flock” p. 14,15
Some of the angels sympathized with Satan in his rebellion, and others STRONGLY CONTENDED for the honor and wisdom of Elohim in giving authority to his SON… In no way could this happy couple be deprived of their happiness if they obeyed Elohim. Spiritual Gifts Vol. I, p. 18
Happiness is the result of Holiness and conformity to the Will of Elohim. Reflecting the Messiah p. 303
It was Caleb’s FAITH that gave him COURAGE, that kept him from the FEAR OF MAN, and enabled him to STAND BOLDLY and UNFLINCHINGLY in the DEFENSE OF THE RIGHT. Through reliance on the same Power, the mighty General of the armies of heaven, every TRUE SOLDIER OF THE CROSS may receive STRENGTH AND COURAGE TO OVERCOME the obstacles that SEEM INSURMOUNTABLE. Review and Herald May 30, 1912
The health should be as carefully guarded as the character.
My Life Today p. 144 He who CHERISHES the LIGHT which Elohim has given him upon HEALTH REFORM has an IMPORTANT AID in the work of becoming SANCTIFIED THROUGH THE TRUTH and FITTED FOR IMMORTALITY. My Life Today p. 254
He put forth his strongest efforts to overcome the Messiah on the point of appetite, who endured the keenest pangs of hunger. The victory gained was designed, not only to set an example to those who have fallen under the power of appetite but to qualify the Redeemer for His special work of reaching to the very depths of human woe. By experiencing in Himself the strength of Satan’s temptation, and of human sufferings and infirmities, He would know how to succor those who should put forth efforts to help themselves. Confrontation p. 78
There will be those among us who will always want to control the work of Elohim, to dictate even what movements shall be made when the work goes forward under the direction of the angel who joins the third angel in the message to be given to the world. Elohim will use ways and means by which it will be seen that He is taking the reins in His own Hands. The workers will be surprised by the SIMPLE MEANS that He will use to bring about and PERFECT His work of righteousness. Testimonies to Ministers p. 300
When the MIGHTY ANGEL will come down from heaven, and unite with the third angel in closing up the work for this world; my message is that our only safety is in being ready for the heavenly REFRESHING, having our lamps trimmed and burning.” 1 Selected Messages p. 192
Elohim requires all who believe the truth to make SPECIAL, PERSEVERING EFFORTS to place themselves in the BEST POSSIBLE CONDITION of bodily health, for a solemn and important work is before us. Health of body and mind is required for this work; it is as essential to a healthy religious experience, to advancement in the Yahdian life, and progress in HOLINESS, as is the hand or foot to the human body. Elohim requires His people to CLEANSE THEMSELVES from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of Y’hovah. All those who are indifferent and excuse themselves from this WORK, waiting for Y’hovah to do for them that which He REQUIRES THEM TO DO FOR THEMSELVES, will be found wanting when the meek of the earth, who have wrought HIS JUDGMENTS, are hid in the day of Y’hovah’s anger.
I was shown that if Elohim’S PEOPLE make no efforts on their part, but wait for THE REFRESHING to come upon them and remove their wrongs and correct their errors; if they depend upon that to CLEANSE THEM from filthiness of the flesh and spirit, and fit them to engage in the LOUD CRY OF THE THIRD ANGEL, they will be found wanting. THE REFRESHING OR POWER OF Elohim comes only on those who have PREPARED THEMSELVES FOR IT by doing the WORK which Elohim bids them, namely, CLEANSING THEMSELVES from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting HOLINESS in the fear of Elohim. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 1, p. 619
It is the LATTER RAIN; the REFRESHING from the presence of Y’hovah: the LOUD CRY of the THIRD ANGEL. Spiritual Gifts Vol. 1 p. 186
Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Y’hoshua, By a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil that is to say, His flesh; And having a high priest over the house of Elohim; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having OUR HEARTS SPRINKLED FROM AN EVIL CONSCIENCE, and OUR BODIES WASHED WITH PURE WATER. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised;) Hebrews 10:19-23
But and if that servant say in his heart, My Elohim delayeth His coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to EAT AND DRINK, and to BE DRUNKEN; The Master of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant, which KNEW HIS MASTER’S WILL, and PREPARED NOT HIMSELF, NEITHER DID ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, shall be beaten with many stripes. Luke 12:45-47
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Rev. 21:8 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear Him. Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and NOT ONE of them IS FORGOTTEN BEFORE Elohim? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man confess before the Angels of Elohim. Luke 12:5-8
IN THAT DAY SHALL THE Y’hovah Elohim OF HOSTS BE FOR A CROWN OF GLORY, AND FOR A DIADEM OF BEAUTY, UNTO THE RESIDUE OF HIS PEOPLE, and for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for STRENGTH TO THEM THAT TURN THE BATTLE TO THE GATE. But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision they stumble in judgment.
FOR ALL TABLES ARE FULL OF VOMIT AND FILTHINESS, SO THAT THERE IS NO PLACE CLEAN. Whom shall he teach KNOWLEDGE? and WHOM SHALL HE MAKE TO UNDERSTAND DOCTRINE? Them that are WEANED FROM THE MILK, and DRAWN FROM THE BREASTS. For PRECEPT must be upon PRECEPT, PRECEPT UPON PRECEPT; LINE UPON LINE, LINE UPON LINE; HERE A LITTLE, AND THERE A LITTLE: For with STAMMERING LIPS and ANOTHER TONGUE will he speak to THIS PEOPLE. TO WHOM HE SAID, THIS IS THE REST wherewith ye may cause the WEARY TO REST; and THIS IS THE REFRESHING: yet they would not hear. But the word of Y’hovah was unto them PRECEPT UPON PRECEPT, PRECEPT UPON PRECEPT; LINE UPON LINE, LINE UPON LINE, HERE A LITTLE, and THERE A LITTLE; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. Wherefore hear the word of Y’hovah ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Isaiah 28:5-14
For every one that useth MILK is UNSKILLFUL IN THE WORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who BY REASON OF USE HAVE THEIR SENSES EXERCISED TO DISCERN BOTH GOOD AND EVIL. Heb 5:13,14
But YE ARE NOT IN THE FLESH, BUT IN THE SPIRIT, IF so be that the Spirit of Elohim dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of The Messiah, he is none of His. Romans 8:9
And they that are The Messiah’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. Galatians 5:24
Love and Purity are the attributes He prizes most. DA 219
There is to be in the churches a WONDERFUL MANIFESTATION OF THE POWER OF Elohim, but it will not move upon those who have not humbled themselves before Y’hovah, and OPENED THE DOOR of their heart by confession and repentance. IN THE MANIFESTATION OF THE POWER THAT LIGHTENS THE EARTH WITH ITS GLORY, they will see only SOMETHING which in their blindness THEY THINK DANGEROUS, SOMETHING WHICH WILL AROUSE THEIR FEARS, and they will brace themselves to resist it. Because Y’hovah does not work according to their expectations and ideas, they will oppose the work. “Why” they say, “should we not know the Spirit of Elohim, when we have been in the work so many years?” Review and Herald 11-7-1918
The GOSPEL OF HEALTH has able advocates, but their work has been made very hard because so many ministers, presidents of conferences, and others in positions of influence, have failed to give the question of HEALTH REFORM its proper attention. They have not recognized it in its relation to the work of the message as the RIGHT ARM of the body. Testimonies for the Church Vol 6. p.327
Everything that conflicts with NATURAL LAW creates a diseased condition of the soul. Counsels on Health p. 68
Let the church arise and shine. Let every family practice self-denial, doing all they can to improve their own condition. Those who are truly on Y’hovah’s side will be self-denying and self-sacrificing. They will EAT and DRINK to the glory of Elohim, refusing to corrupt soul and body by intemperance. Then the condition of the church will testify that her LIGHT has not been removed. BUT if church members do not act the part Elohim has assigned them, THE MOVEMENT OF HEALTH REFORM WILL GO ON WITHOUT THEM, AND IT WILL BE SEEN THAT Elohim HAS REMOVED THEIR CANDLESTICK OUT OF ITS PLACE. Those who refuse to receive and practice the LIGHT will be left in the background. A Call to Medical Evangelism. p. 46
The great enemy knows that if appetite and passion predominate, the HEALTH OF BODY and STRENGTH OF INTELLECT are sacrificed upon the altar of self-gratification, and man is brought to speedy ruin. If ENLIGHTENED INTELLECT HOLDS THE REINS, CONTROLLING ANIMAL PROPENSITIES AND KEEPING THEM IN SUBJECTION TO THE MORAL POWERS, Satan well knows that his power to overcome with his temptations is very small. CONFRONTATION p. 58
Many professed health reformers are nothing less than gluttons. They lay upon the digestive organs so great a burden that the VITALITY of the system is exhausted in the effort to dispose of it. It also has a depressing influence upon the intellect, for the BRAIN NERVE POWER is called upon to ASSIST the stomach in its work. Overeating, even of the simplest food, BENUMBS the sensitive nerves of the brain and weakens its VITALITY. Overeating has a worse effect upon the system than overworking; the ENERGIES OF THE SOUL are more effectually prostrated by intemperate eating than by intemperate working. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 2, p. 412
…they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the STUMBLING BLOCK of their iniquity. Ezekiel 7:19
But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Baalam, who taught Balak to cast a STUMBLING BLOCK before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. Rev. 2:14
…but he that putteth his trust in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my Holy Mountain; And shall say, cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the STUMBLING BLOCK out of the way of my people. For thus saith the High and Lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of A CONTRITE AND HUMBLE SPIRIT, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:13-15
…but to this man will I look, even to him that is POOR AND OF A CONTRITE SPIRIT, AND TREMBLETH AT MY WORD. Isaiah 66:2
I have commanded my SANCTIFIED ONES, I have also called my MIGHTY ONES for mine anger, even THEM that REJOICE in MY HIGHNESS. Isaiah 13:3
Why do some of our ministering brethren manifest so little interest in health reform?–It is because instruction on temperance in all things is opposed to their practice of self-indulgence. In some places this has been the GREAT STUMBLING BLOCK in the way of our bringing the people to investigate and practice and teach HEALTH REFORM. Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, p. 378
As our first parents lost Eden through the indulgence of appetite, our only hope of regaining Eden is through the firm denial of appetite and passion. Abstemiousness in diet and control of all the passions will preserve the intellect and give mental and moral vigor, enabling men to bring all their propensities under the control of the higher powers and to discern between right and wrong, the sacred and the common. All who have a true sense of the sacrifice made by The Messiah in leaving His home in heaven to come to this world that He might by His own life show man how to resist temptation will cheerfully deny self and choose to be partakers with The Messiah of His sufferings….The controlling power of appetite will prove the ruin of thousands, when, if they had conquered on this point, they would have had moral power to gain the victory over every other temptation of Satan. But those who are slaves to appetite will fail in perfecting Yahdian character. The continual transgression of man for six thousand years has brought sickness, pain, and death as its fruits. And as we near the close of time, Satan’s temptation to indulge appetite will be more powerful and more difficult to overcome. Testimonies Vol. 3, p. 491, 492

Elohim is working in behalf of His people. He does not desire them to be without resources. He is BRINGING THEM BACK TO THE DIET ORIGINALLY GIVEN TO MAN. Their DIET is to consist of the FOODS MADE FROM THE MATERIALS HE HAS PROVIDED. The MATERIALS PRINCIPALLY USED IN THESE FOODS WILL BE FRUITS and GRAINS and NUTS, but VARIOUS ROOTS will also be used.

Elder Daniells drove the visitors first past the nearby temporary
General Conference headquarters at 222 North Capitol Street, and
then over to the Memorial church at 12th and M streets to see the
building for which Ellen White had helped to raise funds. Then he
drove the seven miles out to Takoma Park to the Carroll Manor
House, which had been rented for Mrs. White’s use. When they
arrived, it was still full of people cleaning, repairing, painting, and
furnishing, but a good dinner of tomato soup, hot boiled potatoes,
and greens was ready.

Many of us suffer from chronic stomach upsets, poor appetite, muscle cramps or joint pains–or other persisting ailments that seem to have no cause. Surprisingly often, gluten intolerance–an inability to digest a gluten protein found mainly in WHEAT and to a lesser extent in OTHER GRAINS–is the cause, and may also be the predisposing factor in some grave health conditions.
Gluten is a water-soluble complex protein fraction present in some cereal grains, notably wheat and rye, and to a lesser extent in oats and barley. It is also present in triticale, a HYBRID of wheat and rye. from “Gluten Intolerance” by Beatrice Trum Hunter
