You have yet to explain what any of this has to do with the topic of this thread.
Here is the OP
pythons said:Do SDA's accept that Noah, Jacob, Isaac, the Prophet Daniel and others who died in God's friendship COULD BE conscious and in heaven or do these individuals also have to undergo the Investigative Judgement and wait for the Resurrection of the body?
I think I've posted enough examples of Ellen White and the other Pioneers categorically rejecting that God is spirit.....
...Every "BEING" in heaven - to include Father God has flesh, organs, members and parts according to SDA teaching.
... Any teaching that removed Father, Michael or Lucifer's flesh "body" was "DESTROYING THE PERSONALITY OF GOD".
This SDA categorical rejection of God being a single spirit was literally saturated throughout SDA publications...
...The Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans, Calvinists, Orthodox Church, etc. were loudly condemned by SDA's.
....Repeatedly in the Sabbath Herald and Signs of the Times papers -for - DESTROYING THE PERSONALITY OF GOD.
Ellen White, Ye shall receive power p 235.4
"Those who seek to remove the old landmarks are not holding fast; they are not remembering how they have received and heard. Those who try to bring in theories that would remove the pillars of our faith concerning the sanctuary or concerning the PERSONALITY OF GOD or of Christ are working as blind men. They are seeking to bring in uncertainties and to set the people of God adrift without an anchor.
So, as Ellen White just said the SDA Pioneer teaching on the flesh bodies of Father God, Michael & Lucifer the archangels are PILLARS of the SDA Faith. The rest of the theology has this baked into it. You reject the consciousness of the soul because you believe it can't exist without a living body - it stands to reason IF that is how God is made up (a flesh body) and if God created man in His image then man would have a flesh body too. The SDA reasoned that Father God obviously had a body with organs because He could SMELL THE SACRIFICE and it was pleasing to Him, if it smelled good He was gonna eat it and would need those same organs that a man is known to have to digest and expel the waste.
I'm trying to show you that there is another way to look at all this - that's Biblically sound. I'm trying to slowly expose you to the truth that man being created in God image and likeness didn't mean that Father God had a liver, spleen, bowels, prostate, etc., etc. Once you grasp this concept what I've been saying will start to make a lot more sense.
