Watch the transition from ESL to native English, suggesting the use of plagiarism (again).Victor, I write this for you through my Manual of life.
Just have only your BIBLE with you.
The necessary prerequisite is to demonstrate the existence of the Investigative Judgment.Preparing in the Time of Judgment
So Victor, how should we be living in the time of judgment? Well, think forward to the time when Jesus returns after the judgment is complete. Will you have regrets that you spent more time watching TV, playing games, socializing, reading novels, building your career, making your house nice, than you did with your Lord and Saviour? ALL these things will be burnt up when Christ Jesus returns. Let them go now while you still have chance to get right with the Lord.
For reference, codified by Ellen White in the Great Controversy:
- Convened only after 1844, 'it is...in 1844...to perform the work of investigative judgment'
- Addresses only the 'professed people of God', and is not a general judgment
- Convened in absentia of the accused, 'they will not be present in person'
- The accused are judged according to the old covenant, 'The law of God is the standard'
- Adventist soteriology is dependent on this alleged judgment, 'their names will be blotted out of the book of life'
There's a reason you don't quote your citations - it is as if you aren't cogent of what the citation says.2 Peter 3:11,14
It violates every single point Ellen postulated.
This still lacks the necessary prerequisite mentioned above.Knowing that we are in the time of judgment, and knowing that this world and everything in it will be laid waste, we need now to start living godly lives, putting aside worldly things and truly living for Christ.
Now read this citation and explain why Ellen White demands you violate the commandments of God.Ecclesiastes 12:13.
Regarding the IJ, this is unrelated.
This violates the first, third, and forth points.Luke 21:36
Read this for yourself and verify it doesn't mention any judgment.Luke 13:24.
Ellen White isn't an authority you can appeal to defend Ellen White. The challenge is to substantiate her alleged Investigative Judgment in the Bible. You know, "BIBLICAL"."If there even was a time when serious reflection becomes every one who fears God, it is now, when personal piety is essential. "What am I, and what is my work and mission in this time? On which side am I working--Christ's side or the enemy's side?" Let every soul now humble himself or herself before God, for now we are surely living in the great Day of Atonement. The cases even now of many are passing in review before God, for they are to sleep in their graves a little season. Your profession of faith in not your guarantee in that day, but the state of your affections. Is the soul-temple cleansed of its defilement? Are my sins confessed and am I repenting of them before God, that they may be blotted out? Do I esteem myself too lightly? Am I willing to make any every sacrifice for the excellency of the knowledge of Jesus Christ? Do I feel every moment I am not my own, but Christ's property, that my service belongs to God, whose I am?" (Ms 87, 1886)

It doesn't look like you know. You mentioned Ellen's scenario based on the old covenant (Ten Commandments) which is the forth point, but you haven't found support for it in the Bible. In fact, it is contrary to John 5:24's promise by Jesus.Victor, when did the great day of atonement (judgment) begin in heaven? Ask me this question if you cannot answered it I'm my thread, I can answered all questions BIBLICAL!!
Please don't go in my Manual of life and steal a little of it to make your own story. You can run, but you can't hide!!
Let me continue.
Victor please don't think that you can be saved by your works, because that is impossible. This is NOT the message we (our FEW remnant) giving here. We can ONLY be saved by the grace of God, which is a free gift to all. BUT, the message we are giving here is that faith ALONE cannot save you as the book of James confirms. A true faith WILL produce works and the evidence of your faith is the works that you do. Do you have a true faith? Then you will be striving to keep God's ten commandments, you will be turning away from worldly things, you will be giving more time to Jesus than anything else, you will be sharing the gospel with others, you will be using the money and possessions that God gave you to further His kingdom, rather than use them as a pleasure for yourself. Your life will be consumed with Christ Jesus.
Victor, What Happens in the Judgment?
I know that you don't know.
This is a judgment of a beast power, not the professed people of God.Take a look at this awesome judgment scene pictured by the prophet Daniel.
What an amazing scene! God sits on His fiery throne, millions of angels minister to Him, the record books are opened and Christ Jesus is brought to God to be the intercessor for man. The court is in session! What a scene to behold! Now if you still have doubt as to the validity of this message you are reading, that judgment takes place BEFORE Christ returns at the second coming, then read the above Bible verses again, and then take a look at the following verse.
This citation and commentary violates every single point Ellen codified.
Violates points 1, 4, and 5.Revelation 3:5
Read the context - violates the first point and is mostly unrelated anyway.Revelation 22:11
Violates points 1, 2, 4, and 5.Revelation 14:6-7.
This is the proper thread to address the Investigative Judgment, of which you haven't found BIBLICAL support for.I leave it till here. Next time ask me questions on my thread. I can answered all questions BIBLICAL.
