What is the purpose of AD and why does it exist?

AD is a nonprofit organization run by Seventh-day Adventists who have a firm belief in the Bible and SOP. The board of AD consists of pastors and lay people in good and regular standing with the SDA Church and this board constitutes the governing body of AD. We believe that the burden of the message is to be rooted in the "Three Angels' Messages"

Then I saw souls that were needy. They were honest, and they needed the prejudice torn from them that they have received from their leaders, and then they can receive the truth. I saw [that] the burden of the message should be the first, second, and third angels' messages, and those who had any hope in God would yield to the force of that truth. How mighty and glorious it looked to me. Oh, what privilege is ours, that of being among the children of God and believing the mighty truth - a poor, despised company, but how honored of God! { 13MR 301.1 }

In a special sense Seventh-day Adventists have been set in the world as watchmen and light-bearers. To them has been entrusted the last warning for a perishing world. On them is shining wonderful light from the Word of God. They have been given a work of the most solemn import - the proclamation of the first, second, and third angels' messages. There is no other work of so great importance. They are to allow nothing else to absorb their attention. { Ev 119.3 }

Many, even in our own ranks, do not have a sufficient grasp of what the Three Angels' Messages entail. Why are they so important and why is it our privilege to present them to the world? This document is not the forum for an in depth study of the message of Revelation 14 but a brief summary of the main trust of the messages and what they entail seems appropriate.

The first angels' message

comes at a very specific time in history as it announces the "time of His judgement" which is the end of the 2300 - day prophecy. It therefore also identifies the message bearers as only one church has ever announced that the hour of His Judgement has begun, and that is the Seventh Day Adventist Church. This makes this church peculiar in more ways than one and separates it from all others. The message of the investigative judgement does not sit well with many and the exclusivity which it brings sits even less well with some. The message is thus rooted in prophecy with many ramifications.

The everlasting gospel is also proclaimed in this message, not a dispensationalist gospel, but an everlasting gospel. Not a half gospel, but a whole gospel, one that has existed from the beginning. The world has managed over the ages to remodel the gospel to suit the needs of those who wish to pervert it, but it has always stood on two pillars namely Justice and Mercy. These two have to kiss each other or else it would not be an everlasting gospel. Law and grace, righteousness by faith, the atonement and the entire sanctuary message are to be the jewels that are to be placed in right settings and this is the task to be undertaken by the "repairers of the breach, the restorers of paths to dwell in." Moreover, this message calls for the worship of the creator God who made heaven and earth. Thus it contains the seal of God and as such the Sabbath is already a part of the first angel's message thus enabling the messengers to place law and grace in a right relationship to each other. Not only that, but the whole issue of creation versus evolution is part of the message, so when the world was confronted by the theory of evolution in 1844, with the inroads of Spiritism, communism, existentialism, theosophism, ecumenism and all the other -isms which saw the light in 1844, God countered with the message of the first angel. God also provided the roadmap, the Spirit of Prophecy, to guide His people through the end-time maze of confusion. The message is thus broad and deep and incorporates the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.

The second angel's message

announced the fall of Babylon, but it did not yet call it a "house of demons" or a "cage of every unclean and detestable bird" nor did it make a clarion call to the people of God to "come out of her." The message announced the fall of Babylon because they did not accept the light of the first message and were not willing to pass into the second chamber where the significance of the antitypical day of atonement would have elevated the standard of God's righteousness, the Law, Christ's priestly ministry and the necessity to feed on the hidden manna, His body, in order to stand on that great day. Of necessity, it is entailed in the message that Babylon be identified as well as the reasons for her fall or else the message would be meaningless to those who heard it.

The third angel's message

warns against the mark of the beast and the beast has been identified by all the Reformers as the Roman Catholic system. Rome claims that its mark of authority is the fact that it changed the day of worship from the Sabbath of God to Sunday. Sunday is thus based on the authority of the church and it is thus the church which sanctifies you. The message of the third angel warns against this presumptive act and proclaims the Sabbath as the symbol of righteousness by faith in verity. It is God who sanctifies - not man - and the Sabbath is the seal of His sanctification.

Eze 20:12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.

The Sabbath is the symbol of rest, rest in His completed works, so that my redemption is His work and not mine. I am His both by creation and redemption. The most fearful consequences are announced upon those who accept this false system of salvation. It is not merely a question of the day, but a question of authority and salvation itself.

We also believe that the Three Angels' Messages are under attack because the "devil is wroth with the woman" and is at war with her and for this reason there has been a distinct decline in the clarity in which these messages are being presented to the world and it is for this reason that God has raised up ministries who will stand for this message even in the face of external and internal opposition as they would be less encumbered by the rules of protocol than the church. Moreover, it is important to note in this regard that we at AD are message-driven and not organization- driven. Nobody gets baptized into AD. We stand by the church as we believe that this church is the body through which God works and that in spite of its weaknesses is not part of the Babylonian confusion: I testify to my brethren and sisters that the church of Christ, enfeebled and defective as it may be, is the only object on earth on which He bestows His supreme regard. While He extends to all the world His invitation to come to Him and be saved, He commissions His angels to render divine help to every soul that cometh to Him in repentance and contrition, and He comes personally by His Holy Spirit into the midst of His church. { CET 206.3 }

There is but one church in the world who are at the present time standing in the breach, and making up the hedge, building up the old waste places; and for any man to call the attention of the world and other churches to this church, denouncing her as Babylon, is to do a work in harmony with him who is the accuser of the brethren....The whole world is filled with hatred of those who proclaim the binding claims of the law of God, and the church who are loyal to Jehovah must engage in no ordinary conflict.... Those who have any realization of what this warfare means, will not turn their weapons against the church militant, but with all their powers will wrestle with the people of God against the confederacy of evil. { FLB 305.4 }

Now is not the time to water down the message no matter how politically incorrect some may deem it to be; the trumpet must give a distinctive sound so that all may rally to its call. Indeed, we believe that the messages have reached a point in history where they are to swell into the loud cry. The loud cry of Revelation 18 is a very powerful message that gives precise details as to why Babylon has fallen and why they have become a house of demons and unclean spirits. For this reason, it is necessary to clearly identify Babylon and to give clear reasons as to why it has become imperative for God's people to"come out of her."

The Loud Cry

I saw angels hurrying to and from heaven, descending to the earth, and again ascending to heaven, preparing for the fulfillment of some important event. Then I saw another mighty angel commissioned to descend to the earth, to unite his voice with the third angel, and give power and force to his message. Great power and glory were imparted to the angel, and as he descended, the earth was lightened with his glory. The light which attended this angel penetrated everywhere, as he cried mightily, with a strong voice, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird."

The message of the fall of Babylon, as given by the second angel, is repeated, with the additional mention of the corruptions which have been entering the churches since 1844.

The work of this angel comes in at the right time to join in the last great work of the third angel's message as it swells to a loud cry. And the people of God are thus prepared to stand in the hour of temptation, which they are soon to meet. I saw a great light resting upon them, and they united to fearlessly proclaim the third angel's message. { EW 277.1 }

Angels were sent to aid the mighty angel from heaven, and I heard voices which seemed to sound everywhere, "Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities."

This message seemed to be an addition to the third message, joining it as the midnight cry joined the second angel's message in 1844.

The glory of God rested upon the patient, waiting saints, and they fearlessly gave the last solemn warning, proclaiming the fall of Babylon and calling upon God's people to come out of her that they might escape her fearful doom. {EW 277.2}

Confusions of Babylon and Antichrist - It is our individual duty to walk humbly with God. We are not to seek any strange, new message. We are not to think that the chosen ones of God who are trying to walk in the light, compose Babylon.

The fallen denominational churches are Babylon. Babylon has been fostering poisonous doctrines, the wine of error. This wine of error is made up of false doctrines, such as the natural immortality of the soul, the eternal torment of the wicked, the denial of the pre-existence of Christ prior to His birth in Bethlehem, and advocating and exalting the first day of the week above God's holy, sanctified day. These and kindred errors are presented to the world by the various churches.... { Ev 365.1}

Exposing these errors must therefore be part of the message and cannot be considered as hate speech but merely as statements of facts. People must be given the opportunity to make decisions based on information and as uncomfortable as it might seem to many, God has called us to do just that. We also need to know why Babylon's fall is being announced at this stage with the call to come out of her. The question is, which of the three components of Babylon has now fallen to the point of no return, since some components (the beast and dragon powers) had always been in the fallen state.

Babylon is"the mother of harlots." Her daughters must be churches that cling to her doctrines and follow her example of sacrificing truth in order to form an alliance with the world. The message announcing the fall of Babylon must apply to religious bodies that were once pure and have become corrupt. Since this message follows the warning of the judgment, it must be given in the last days. Therefore, it cannot refer to the Roman Church alone, for that church has been in a fallen condition for centuries. { HF 238.1 }

The message of the second angel did not reach its complete fulfillment in 1844. The churches then experienced a moral fall in their refusal of the light of the advent message, but that fall was not complete. As they have continued to reject the special truths for this time they have fallen lower and lower. Not yet, however, can it be said that"Babylon is fallen, ... because she made all nations drink
of the wine of the wrath of her fornication." Protestant churches are included in the solemn denunciation of the second angel. But the work of apostasy has not yet reached its culmination. { HF 241.2 }

When these words were penned and also appeared in the Great Controversy edition, the work of apostasy had indeed not yet reached its culmination because Protestantism had not yet reached across the gulf to grab the hand of Rome, however, progress in the unity of the churches has reached a point where a public display of unity is planned on Reformation Day on October 31, 2017. Documents of accord have been signed by the various denominations and hailed as great breakthroughs in inter-church relationships and in July 2017 the evangelical churches joined the ranks of the Lutherans and Methodists in signing the Joint Declaration on Justification which paves the way for church unity. Many, even in our own ranks, are in danger of being swept away by these delusions as many have lost sight of the message and our people do not fully comprehend the magnitude of the deception being perpetrated. These joint documents have been so cleverly and ambiguously worded that many hail them as the voice of God when it is a power from beneath that penned them.

Greater unity of the churches and the moves to link church and state in order to combat extremism, will eventually lead to the implementation of the mark of the beast. Already world leaders have voiced the opinion that people who harbor fundamentalist views should not fall under the protection of human rights and the pope has stated openly that Christian fundamentalism is a menace and a threat to society. Moves to enshroud Sunday as the official day of rest have received much media attention, not only from the governments and churches of the world but from papal encyclicals asking for its implementation on the grounds that the earth needs it in order to avoid climatic catastrophe. Even Israel has risen to the challenge by debating the issue and by relinquishing its firm stand on Sabbath trading.

Now is the time for the loud cry to go into the world: Solemn Warnings Stir Thousands - Men of faith and prayer will be constrained to go forth with holy zeal, declaring the words which God givesthem. The sins of Babylon will be laid open. The fearful results of enforcing the observances of the church by civil authority, the inroads of Spiritualism, the stealthy but rapid progress of the papal power - all will be unmasked. By these solemn warnings the people will be stirred. Thousands upon thousands will listen who have never heard words like these. In amazement they hear the testimony that Babylon is the church, fallen because of her errors and sins, because of her rejection of the truth sent to her from heaven. - The Great Controversy, 606, 607 (1888). { Ev 43.4}

Many to Come to the Light - Through the grace of Christ, God's ministers are made messengers of light and blessing.

As by earnest, persevering prayer they obtain the endowment of the Holy Spirit and go forth weighted with the burden of soulsaving, their hearts filled with zeal to extend the triumphs of the cross, they will see fruit of their labors. Resolutely refusing to display human wisdom or to exalt self, they will accomplish a work that will withstand the assaults of Satan.

Many souls will be turned from darkness to light, and many churches will be established. Men will be converted, not to the human instrumentality, but to Christ. - The Acts of the Apostles, 278 (1911). {Ev 44.1}

Furthermore, in the eighteenth chapter of the Revelation the people of God are called upon to come out of Babylon.

According to this scripture, many of God's people must still be in Babylon. And in what religious bodies are the greater part of the followers of Christ now to be found? Without doubt, in the various churches professing the Protestant faith.

At the time of their rise these churches took a noble stand for God and the truth, and His blessing was with them. Even the unbelieving world was constrained to acknowledge the beneficent results that followed an acceptance of the principles of the gospel. In the words of the prophet to Israel:"Thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through My comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord God." But they fell by the same desire which was the curse and ruin of Israel - the desire of imitating the practices and courting the friendship of the ungodly. "Thou didst trust
in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown." Ezekiel 16:14, 15. {GC 382.3}

The whole world is to be lightened with His glory. AD's mission is to get this message of warning out in a loud cry, using television, the written media, the internet and now to a great extent also via social media because social media can reach people that do not have access to satellite but almost everyone has a cellphone these days. If the President of the United States of America can use social media to get his message across, then so can we. It would also be useful to broadcast the messages on secular television channels and for this reason we are also concentrating on documentaries that would be more likely to be acceptable to these channels. We must get the message out by every possible means.

We realize that there will come a time when these media channels will no longer be available to us and that is why we want to expand into a school of evangelism based on the principles of the"schools of the prophets" in Israel of old where young people and the young at heart can come and receive personal training as to what the relevance of the Three Angels' Messages and the Loud Cry is for our time. The events unfolding in Oct 2017 and the fact that the main line Protestant churches and the Evangelicals have now all committed to a unification of the churches tell us that we have reached a point of no return.

When the media has been cut off then individual voices must be able to run from friend to friend, door to door and town to town. That is why we want to expand into hands-on seminars so that our people can be equipped to run with the message. Many of our people, young and old, have not been exposed to the relevance of our message as they should have been in their home environments and in our churches. Many do not even know what the significance of our church or our message is and why we have been called to stand in the breach. We are not just another denomination, we are to be the finial message bearers to a dying world and we are to stand between the living and the dead.

How long will we still be able to carry on? How long do we have in order to achieve the objective? The short answer is: we do not know. But we can read the signs. And it is our opinion that the time is short, whether that is 1 year or 3 years or 5 years or 10 years is irrelevant. But everybody who has been watching the media must know that the doors are closing for this message. So as Martin Luther said, "If I know the Lord is coming tomorrow, I will plant a tree today." And it is AD's appeal to all that love the message to plant a tree today.

We believe very strongly that the message is paramount but we also believe that if the message is not backed by personal alignment in terms of lifestyle and counsel followed, it will lose its force. When the Queen of Sheba travelled the ancient world to see for herself the wisdom of Solomon, it was not his wisdom alone that convinced her but what she saw convinced her. What she saw on his table, what she saw in terms of how he treated his servants, what she saw on how he conducted his worship was what convinced her. We believe that what we preach we must also practice so that those who are associated with this message can get the full picture and not just the theory of the truth, an intellectual head-knowledge.

That is why we want to move into the country according to the counsel, but we do not want to become monasteries. We do need facilities, we do need rapid internet, and access to the communication systems of the world. But we must not be sullied by the world. We do want to be surrounded by people that have the same vision because we are not an island. We are Seventh-day Adventists. We want to be seen as supportive of the message and the church and not contrary to it. We do not want to be disrespectful of the leadership in any sense but work in harmony with them. But we do not want to compromise one iota when it comes to the message. We have to stand like the needle to the pole.

It is imperative that we reiterate again that AD is message driven. And those who support AD with their prayers and means, and their intellectual contributions do so because they align themselves with the message. AD should never harbor a vision of building an empire here on this earth. Its sole purpose should be to get the message to the world so the means that are given and the support that is given should be to this purpose and this purpose alone. We realize that our time is short and that we will be working by the grace of God alone. And we will have to move by faith. The attitude of God's workers, which we all need to strive for, is summed up by Ellen White when she gave council on sanitariums and her words apply equally well to institutes such as AD.

Sanitariums are to be established in many places, to stand as memorials for God. I know that the truth will reach the hearts of many who, but for the agency of these institutions, would never be enlightened by the brightness of the gospel message. Self-sacrificing workers, who have full faith in God, should be chosen to take charge of these institutions. They are to take up this work, not with the hope of gaining financial advantage, but because their hearts are weighted with the burden of the message for this time. They are to be willing to sacrifice personal gain and personal convenience for the sake of saving souls. { RH May 5, 1904, par. 12 }

Our appeal is to all the friends of AD and to all who love the message for our time to rally around the truth. We need unity of mind and spirit and when the storm comes and the wind blows upon the house we want to be rooted in the Rock, the only foundation that will stand the test.

May the Lord bless you all as we embark on our final journey to our everlasting home.
