And Follow Their Faith!

Compiled by Hans Fleschutz

In memoriam of those in the Seventh-day Adventist Reform Movement who died for their faith.

Testimonies of faithfulness and steadfastness during Germany’s dark days


Introduction

More than twenty years have passed since the terrible Second World War ended. Much has been spoken and written about that time. In several places memorials have been erected as a reminder of those inexpressible sufferings. In that time of great apostasy when the fury of war did its destructive work and the god of war was worshiped and glorified by nominal Christians, there were still people who had the courage to acknowledge Jesus as their Lord. They knew that salvation could be found in only One–Jesus Christ. Through love for their Lord they fulfilled His will; they “loved not their lives unto death” and courageously stood firm for their precious faith.

Faith is proven in times of testing. Thus the period under the rulership of the swastika was also a hard test for God’s people. The purpose of the Reformation has always been to educate soldiers under the cross. During that trial of World War II, these soldiers of Christ proved themselves victorious – faithful unto death.

6. The Church of That Other Angel

By John Thiel, Light in a Dark Place Seminar, Study 6, mp3

Our seminar is now culminating in the most important prophecies that relate directly to us. We want to identify distinctly what Jesus is saying to us in reference to the church of that other angel – the Revelation 18 angel. The angel represents a ministry, a leadership, as in Ephesians 4:11, which is active in saving God’s people, in the same way that salvation was of the Jews in the time of Christ. We are looking at the salvation of God’s people under the Revelation 18 angel.

In our last study we beheld God’s church of 1844 proceeding to a point in time in which they fail to repent and are spewed out by Jesus Christ. Here Jesus is speaking to the church in His time that was on its way out, and, as we will see, in the Spirit of Prophecy this is exactly the same statement that is used for the Seventh-day Adventist Church: Read the rest of this entry

The Nazi Temptation

On January 30, 1933 Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. With incredible speed, he transformed Germany into a totalitarian society using terror and pervasive propaganda.

W. Mueller, President of the Seventh-day Adventist East German Conference said;

“The Christian welcomes with joy the reawakening of Germany and the fight of the Hitler government against unemployment. The Christian is happy to know that he direction of the country is in the hands of a man like Hitler, who frequently emphasizes that he received his post from God to whom he is responsible. As a non-drinker, non-smoker and vegetarian, he stands close to our conception of the reform of life.” Read the rest of this entry

8. The Remnant – Part 2

By John Thiel, Third Angel’s Message, study 8b, mp3

Revelation  3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.  

The scripture of Revelation 3:20-21 identifies the people who are responding to the call of Jesus. He is knocking on the heart’s door and they respond to the call. They open their heart and assimilate with Jesus. Then, as they assimilate with Jesus, they can conquer; they can overcome and then become the remnant of verse 21. We want to follow this sequence through in a living history.

Jesus wanted to convey to the disciples in John chapter 6 that He desires to come in to us, and to eat and drink with us. The message of eating and drinking of Jesus and with Jesus, is the very message that separates just like it separated the seventy from the other disciples.

John 6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Read the rest of this entry
