Should Meat Eating Be a Test of Fellowship?

Many Seventh-day Adventists aren’t aware that Ellen White wrote a letter to A G Daniels urging him to circulate it for all to sign a pledge to dispense with meat eating.  He refused to circulate the letter so Ellen White then had to make the statement, we can’t make meat eating a test because the GC leadership were still eating it so we can’t enforce it on the people.  Isaiah 22:12-14 states clearly that eating clean meat in the day of atonement is a sin that God won’t purge;  https://sabbathsermons.com/2009/08/20/the-bible-reason-for-vegetarianism/

12. The Investigative Judgement

By John Thiel, Audio: The Investigative Judegment by Jesus

As we saw in our last study, the sanctuary message was the key that unlocked the mystery of the disappointment of 1844. Read the rest of this entry

Colossians 2:16 explained

By Aria

The Hebrew sanctuary was the not the real thing as it was a shadow of the real. The sacrifices that were being made were not doing very much for the sinner in reality because it didn’t really cleanse him. It was a symbolic function. It did not make him that did the service perfect as it was only in symbolic activities.

Hebrews 10:1 For the Law having a shadow of good things to come, [and] not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

It was a symbolic activity with the holy days, meats and drinks. They were not something that could cleanse a person from sin.

Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath [days]: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body [is] of Christ.

Because these are not the actual body, when Jesus died and the curtain was rent from top to bottom this meant that the ceremonial Laws were no longer to be practised. It was done away with. Don’t let anyone put you back on that symbolic path anymore. It is finished. Let no one judge you in not keeping the ceremonial Laws – meats, drinks and holy days connected with the sanctuary. It’s not necessary, that was done away with. That’s what it means, don’t let anyone judge you for NOT keeping the ceremonial laws.

Isaiah 22 : Fasting in the Anti-Typical Day of Atonement

By Stephen Haskell

Isaiah 22:12 AND IN THAT DAY did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth: 22:13 And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die. 22:14 And it was revealed in mine ears by the LORD of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

IN WHAT DAY? The antitypical day of atonement.

“The Saviour says that during the time of the judgment, while individuals are being “accounted” worthy or unworthy, we are to take heed lest we become overcharged with surfeiting and drunkenness. Surfeiting is taking too freely of food, whether it be good or bad. Drunkenness is partaking of improper food. We are to be the master, and not the slave of our appetite.” p. 310.

By John Thiel

Isaiah 22:12 And in that day did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with  sackcloth:  13 And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die. 14 And it was revealed in mine ears by the LORD of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.
